ahead there narrowly, 45% to 43%. clinton is making two more stops in the sunshine state. trump spends his morning in washington, d.c. at a ribbon-cutting for his new trump hotel and then heads to rallies in north carolina this afternoon. >> as we mentioned, we'll talk to trump's campaign manager in a moment live, but first nbc's hallie jackson kicks off our coverage. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey there, matt, good morning. donald trump's team sees his visit to his hotel, one of about a dozen visits properties this campaign, as a tangible sign of his leadership, but a head scratching way to spend his 13th to last day before the election for a nontraditional canndidate, certainly an unconventional strategy. today more of a commercial than a campaign stop, the gop nominee using his presidential spotlight to spend time promoting his brand instead of his policies,
7:04 am
attending a ribbon-cutting for his new d.c. hotel. he's also opening up a new line of attack against hillary clinton. in an interview with reuters tuesday, donald trump slamming her position on syria. >> with her you'll end up in world war iii. she doesn't know what she's doing. >> reporter: that statement coming as he starts to pump the brakes on big dollar fund-raising. his top finance adviser pushing back on a "washington post" story suggesting he's halting those efforts though another high-level source acknowledges a slowdown. trump in tallahassee promising a throwdown. >> did you see where biden wants to take me to the back of the barn. >> reporter: reacting to the vice president saying this -- >> i wish we were in high school and i could take him behind the gym. >> i'd love that. mr. tough guy. you know, he's mr. tough guy. >> the point i was making is he is trying to dumb down. he's insulting everybody in the neighborhoods i come from. >> reporter: trump also sounding proud of his scrappy spirit in newly released audio from interviews he did two years ago,
7:05 am
discussing his childhood with a biographer who now supports hillary clinton. >> i loved to fight. i always loved to fight. >> physical fights? >> yeah, all kinds of fights. physical -- >> arguments? >> all types of fights. any kind of fight, i loved it. >> reporter: another recently unearthed video shows trump saying something very different in 2008 about his 2016 rival. >> i think she's a wonderful woman. i think that she's a little bit misunderstood. you know, hillary is a very smart woman, very tough woman. >> reporter: with just under two weeks to go, trump is sharpening up his latest attack against clinton, pointing to insurance rate hikes some consumers will see next year under the health care law. >> obamacare. >> get rid of obamacare. >> reporter: clinton, seeming unfazed, now holding a solid lead nationally and a smaller one in key swing states like florida. >> pay no attention to the polls, don't get complacent, because we've got to turn people out. >> reporter: comfortable enough to check out an adele concert
7:06 am
overnight. and tweeting about her endorsement from colin powell, calling him a decorated soldier and distinguished statesman, she's still facing fallout from a new wikileaks release of stolen e-mails account. one e-mail after president obama learned about her use of a private server. >> at the same time everybody else learned it from news reports. >> reporter: a top aide wrote we need to clean this up. he has e-mails from her. they do not say state.gov. already this morning a small group of protesters has gathered outside donald trump's new washington hotel. over on the west coast what you could call a more dramatic protest. his star on the hollywood walk of fame smashed with a sledgehammer today. not the first time his star has been vandalized. but it damage may last a bit longer. >> all right, hallie, thank you
7:07 am
very much. kellyanne conway is donald trump's campaign manager. kellyanne, good morning, good to see you. >> good morning. great to see you, thank you. >> you're in washington, d.c., so is the candidate. as it turns out he'll be presiding over a ribbon-cutting at his hotel. these last 13 days matter so much and a candidate's time is like precious gold in these final days. what does it say that donald trump is choosing to spend any of those minutes promoting his own hotel and his own brand as opposed to getting out there and really asking people for their votes? >> well, he's doing all of the above, savannah, 12 stops in florida over the last two and a half days. you see it reflected in that new bloomberg poll where he's ahead of hillary clinton by two points, even though she's outspent us 8-1 on the air in florida. he's making a pit stop here in washington and his underbudget, ahead of schedule hotel is really remarkable. it shows americans the tangible accomplishments of donald trump. he's somebody who builds things, he's somebody who fixes things. hillary clinton went from being
7:08 am
dead broke to being a quarter of billionaire. how did she do that? did she build great hotels? did she hit the powerball? none of the above. she sold access. hillary clinton has time to go to an adele concert and everybody else thinks that's really cool. donald trump stops off to unveil an incredible stunning piece of architecture and new hotel, first-class hotel, and everybody's hair is on fire. i think you'll see today the tangible accomplishments of donald trump. >> so instead of being out there over these next 13 days and maybe he has time to do all of this, but instead of just talking about e-mails and obamacare and syria and driving home the issues, you're comfortable this morning with donald trump, the real estate developer, the salesman, the pitchman out there. and that's one of the images that's going to be on tvs all day long. >> he can do all of the above, matt. hillary clinton took five days off to prepare for one debate and everybody looked at that as some kind of noble exercise with 23 days to go.
7:09 am
nobody covered that as where is she, why doesn't she campaign much, where is she hiding? this man in public view will be with his family, true family business here, an amazing accomplishment, for a couple of hours and everybody is questioning it. he has been in florida for two and a half days, 12 stops in the state of florida, went all over, dotted the map of florida. today will go on to north carolina, tomorrow ohio and then we'll be in new hampshire, maine, so he's got the most active campaign schedule of the two candidates by far. by the way, she's got all these super surrogates like both obamas and former president clinton. he's doing this virtually on his own. >> and that's a separate discussion about why that might be, but let's talk about what he's saying on the trail, kellyanne. one thing he says a lot to his supporters, we're winning, don't believe the polls, the media is dishonest. i guess my question is if you look at the polls, i'm looking at the nine last national surveys there were, there are some that show a tight race, there are some that show a very wide race. why doesn't he just level with
7:10 am
his own supporters who adore him and say, you know what, the polls are all over the place. get out there and vote for me. why does he have to construct this whole thing about a rigged election and polls not being reliable unless they support him? why go through all that rigmarole. why not just level with his supporters and say we're in a race here and i need your vote. >> he does tell them to vote. in fact all over florida the last couple of days we saw people in lines in some places two or three hours -- >> but his big pitch is how the system is so corrupt and broken and rigged and there might be voter fraud and, boy, we can't trust the election. my point is why not just lay it out straight for your voters instead of constructing this whole reality where everything is a fraud. why not just say, look, we're in a big battle here. >> do you hear what hillary clinton -- are you aware of what hillary clinton and joe biden say about him in a given day? it's unbelievable. and then they put tens of
7:11 am
millions of dollars behind the politics of personal destruction and negativity. >> fair enough but that's not an answer to the question. fair enough but if you don't mind answering that question. >> yes, it is. you're asking me why he talks about a rigged, corrupt system and the presumption of the question is that he's the one that's being most nasty out there. it's not even a close call who's running the nastiest, least uplifting -- >> that's not the implication i meant to say. >> that's his argument. >> on the rigged, corrupt system, he is not -- he's talking about people being left behind. he's talking about the forgotten man and forgotten woman, that the system does not work for them. savannah, they agree or we wouldn't even be competitive in this race. 75% of americans want to take the country in a new and different direction. he is their voice. if you look from the outside in saying why do i never get a break. >> if you're out there and saying we're winning when the polls, and we have the sheet in front of us show otherwise, and then you get to election day and you don't win, you're driving home this point that it must have been rigged. i told you we were winning and all of a sudden we didn't win, isn't that going to take the
7:12 am
trump supporters and send them down the road angry thinking they got ripped off? >> and is that fair to them? >> no. no, no, the trump supporters, if they're angry at anything, it's angry at washington, angry at wall street, angry at the fact they're now opening up their mail boxes and they're getting whacked with these premium increases. in new hampshire this morning i get an e-mail, 14%. got something from a young, healthy man yesterday, his premium will be doubled. you see the news reports, you're responsibly covering them. 25% premium increases. americans can't afford this. this thing called obamacare and it's not working. hillary clinton owns it. donald trump has a plan to let you buy your insurance across state lines, block grant medicaid to the states and certainly allow you to buy more patient centric free market health care savings plan accounts. he believes in a different path from obamacare. this is what's motivating people to stand in the lines, to come to the rallies 15,000 strong and
7:13 am
to then stand in line to vote. so he has momentum and enthusiasm. those who want to say the election is over aren't paying attention to the fact that voters deserve their voice and to exercise their choice and most of them will do that in 13 days. >> we certainly support the voters' rights to exercise their choice, no question about it. kellyanne, thank you. really appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. thank you both. let's talk about a growing controversy involving thousands of u.s. soldiers ordered to repay enlistment bonuses during the iraq and afghanistan wars. this morning defense secretary ash carter vowing to resolve that issue. in an exclusive interview with nbc news, carter said the government needs to do the right thing by our service members. >> i was in the middle east and there are people there in harm's way doing necessary work for the united states. i think what's important is every single service member deserves the respect and the treatment that they deserve. they have made a commitment to us. we need to keep our commitments
7:14 am
to them. >> you can see much more of that conversation with secretary carter tonight on "nbc n"nbc ni news"" with lester holt. also this morning an investigation is under way into an emergency landing by a british airways flight to san francisco. the plane was forced to divert to vancouver after its entire crew, but no passengers, reported feeling ill. here's morgan radford. >> reporter: emergency landing, after a mysterious illness strikes three pilots and 22 crew members, leaving passengers in shock. >> why was it just the crew? you know, what's happening in the cockpit? >> reporter: liz keller was one of 400 passengers on british airways flight 286 headed from san francisco to london monday night when the plane was forced to land in vancouver. >> i looked at the tv screen and i saw that we had done a complete u-turn. i was just like what's going on here? >> reporter: passengers were confused when first responders rushed crew members to the hospital. >> when i got off the plane, i could see the firemen were
7:15 am
there. everyone just looked a bit confused and a little unsure of exactly what was happening. >> reporter: none of the passengers were sick and all of the crew members were later released from the hospital. the cause of the illness still a mystery. >> if there is any type of emergency, you depend upon that cabin crew. if they're lethargic, they're not mentally capable or physically capable of assisting passengers in any type of emergency situation, then that puts passengers' safety at risk. >> reporter: british airways sent passengers a letter apologizing for the inconvenience and offering new flights and hotel rooms. a journey still ahead with questions still lingering. morgan radford, nbc news, los angeles. another big story has a lot of people talking this morning, the start of the world series. the cleveland indians took game one last night in their historic matchup against the chicago cubs. nbc's ron mott is at progressive field in cleveland. it must have been a fun scene there last night, ron, good morning.
7:16 am
>> reporter: what a night, matt, good morning. the cheering was very loud and so were some of the moans and groans. if this first game is any indication, these players and these fans are going to go all out to make sure they finish on top. on a crisp, fall night in cleveland, a classic opening game of the world series. the indians now one victory closer to ending one of baseball's driest spells, whetting their fans' ravenous appetite for a championship. here and in chicago, every pitch, every catch, savored or soured. ingagony and ecstasy powered by lifetime of hope and disappointment. >> i'm hoping for the best! >> reporter: even 104-year-old indian superfan, known simply as nana, couldn't resist pushing her bedtime back to enjoy the historic matchup, surrounded by generations of her own tribe. >> i think we're the better team overall and will come out on top.
7:17 am
>> reporter: win or lose, fans on both sides are infected with pride. >> it's something to be emotional about. >> reporter: at least the reward for remaining ever faithful, some longer than others, all never doubting their commitment. >> amazing, i love it. it's a great day to be in cleveland. >> reporter: though 68 years have passed since cleveland last donned a baseball crown, they were at least in the fitting room occasionally, striking out three times in the world series since 1948. on tuesday night next door, consolation. the man they call the king, getting emotional collecting more jewels. lebron james and the cavs honored with their championship rings. nana wasn't around when the cubs last won in 1908 so ending that streak for their fans is a dream long repeated with a chance after 71 years of finally coming true. here's a step that will put a smile on all the faces of cleveland indian fans. the team that wins the first
7:18 am
game of the world series has wron the past six championships 17 of the past 19, so certainly good news for cleveland, not so good for chicago. matt, savannah, back to you. >> thank you very much. just another footnote. corey kluber struck out eight of the last nine. >> he was really pinpointing his pitches. they told me to say that. >> you can cross that one off your list. >> i love it, it's just so great. can't everybody win? >> no. >> don't forget, we're giving away tickets to tonight's game in cleveland and another one in chicago. today.com has been flooded with creative entries from superfans of the indians and the cubs. we're going to surprise the winners of our first pair of tickets coming up in just a little while. >> let's take a look at the weather this morning. >> by the way, they're going to move the start of the game tonight to 7:00 because of impending bad weather, so we'll take a look at that in just a little bit. look at what's going on here in

last night and take a 1-0 lead in the world series. game two is tonight. as al mentioned, because of a threat of rain, the start time has been moved up one hour so it starts at 7:00 eastern time. hillary clinton is spending another day in florida, courting early voters in that battleground state. donald trump heads to the nation's capital for the opening of his new hotel before rallies in north carolina tonight. and here is today's campaign moment. newt gingrich clashing with fox news's megyn kelly. >> if trump is a sexual predator -- >> he's not a sexual predator. you can't say that. >> i'm not taking a position on it. >> you can't say that statement. i'm sick and tired of people like you using language that's inflammatory that's not true. you want to go back to the tapes of your show recently, you are fascinated with sex and you don't care about public policy. >> me, really? >> that's what i get out of watching you tonight. >> you know what, mr. speaker, i'm not fascinated by sex. but i am fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we're getting in the oval office.
7:32 am
i think the american voters would like to know -- >> that's why we're going to send bill clinton back to the east wing because, after all, you were worried about sexual predators. >> the american public is less interested in the deeds of hillary clinton's husband than they are in the deeds of the man who asked us to make him president, donald trump. we're going to have to leave it at that and you can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, mr. speaker. thanks for being here. >> and you too. >> so i'm not sure they'll be at the same cocktail party in the coming days. >> 13 days until this election is over. >> that's an extraordinary exchange. i honestly think after watching it that megyn was making a reasonable and rational point but it got out of hand real quickly. >> it's interesting to see the passion on all sides. >> that exchange went pretty viral pretty quickly. other news, some new revelations tied to the disappearance and death of washington intern chandra levy. although he denied any involvement and was quickly dismissed as a suspect, speculation was rampant then that congressman gary condit was
7:33 am
somehow involved. well, now 15 years later, he is finally speaking out and nbc's joe fryer has more on that story. joe, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the shachandra levy scandal end the political career of gary condit. now after 15 years he's sharing his thoughts in his new book "actual malice." he sat down with dr. phil to talk about the book, and dr. phil gave us a preview. >> why is it after all these years he's finally deciding to speak out now? >> because he feels like he was tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. >> reporter: in 2001, the married congressman was accused of having an affair with government intern, chandra levy. >> does he address the question about his relationship with chandra levy? >> most certainly. he addresses it with more candor and transpair aens than he ever has in the last 15 years. >> you developed a friendship
7:34 am
with her and saw her outside the office, correct? >> i saw her one time at a restaurant and she came by my condo once. >> she came by your condo once? >> maybe twice. i think it was twice she came by. >> okay. >> but once again, i want to make this clear. there's nothing unusual about someone coming by my condo. a lot of people did. so people have made some speculation about that being something special, but -- >> well, were the police making something out of that? >> they were trying to make something out of everything they could. >> reporter: a development shocking to condit considering he helped launch the investigation. >> when chandra went missing, her father called my home in california and he was, you know, extremely concerned about her whereabouts. >> was he calling just because you were his congressman or was he calling because he knew you had a relationship with chandra? >> he knew that i was her congressman and she had come by the office.
7:35 am
he had no other contact in washington, d.c., so he called my home. >> was there ever a time that you weren't active in trying to help locate this young woman? >> no. i had made a commitment to dr. levy and mrs. levy that i would do everything i could to get the police engaged. >> reporter: it wasn't until 2010 that a man already serving time for sexual assault was charged and found guilty of levy's murder. but this year after a retrial was ordered, prosecutors dropped the charges against him altogether, saying they could no longer prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. now condit has co-authored "actual malice." >> this is an astoundingly candid book. this is not a spin book. he's very critical of law enforcement. he's very critical of the media. he's very critical of himself. >> reporter: condit tells dr. phil he kept gifts in his office and once gave levy a gold bracelet. >> kids would come in. i'd have 200 hats on two racks
7:36 am
and i'd say pick a hat. so she came in and she had a gift for me, which was chocolates. i opened by door, reached in and said we have one for you from the office, you're graduating, you're getting your master's degree. >> reporter: dr. phil says condit is a man at peace, but also a man with unfinished business. >> and the unfinished business is that no one is currently bowing held accountable for what happened to chandra levy, and that's painful for him. >> throughout this scandal, condilt has denied having an affair with levy. in this interview condit discusses the issue with more candor and transparency than ever before. it airs thursday on dr. phil. >> okay, thank you. mr. roker, check of the we ather. >> let's start out again and head out to cleveland, progressive field. as we mentioned, we are looking at wet weather moving in, although the heaviest rain should be over with by the time that everybody is home, but the
7:37 am
rain starts late at night. maybe a few scattered showers and 49 degrees. here's what's causing it, low pressure coming out of iowa, scattered showers, thunderstorms move through chicago late tonight on into tomorrow. cleveland will get its heaviest rain after the game is over, unless they go into extra innings, but there's so much cold air banked in over the northeast, we're looking at snow in the northeast. in the m we're looking at snow in the northeast. but in the meantime, anywhere from 1 to 2 inches, including cleveland through friday we could see up to 2 inches of rain in parts of new england. but look at the upper elevations of upstate new york and new england. winter weather advisories and possibly 3 to 6, even 8 right now we're seeing partly cloudy skies, a few low clouds and temperatures now in the mid to upper 50s. here is the view. at sunrise, san francisco at 58. should see upper 60s later this afternoon. most spots running low to mid
7:38 am
70s for high today. we'll see that around the south bay and tri-valley. tomorrow the main makes a comeback, especially late thursday i understand friday. plan for more rain for the second half o of the weekend and into tuesday as well. check out your weather any time day of the night, check out the weather channel. >> al, thanks very much. do you have what it takes to pull this off? that is called the pringle ringel. we'll tell you more about it. >> it's art is what it is. >> beautiful. but first, as donald trump cuts the ribbon on a new hotel in washington, d.c. today, is his brand taking a hit? we'll look into it right after this.

mine is a little more personal than me, it's my dead. >> alex is the son of governor scott walker, a candidate in this year's republican primary. >> do you think that those comments from trump have pushed away young republicans? >> absolutely. >> but you're voting for him? >> i am. >> reporter: some critics have labeled frustrated millenials apathetic or lazy. >> come on, millenials, i know we've [ bleep ] things up for you but we were counting on you to fix things, not finish the job. >> reporter: but on campuses around the country, students are fighting that perception. >> i know our generation is passionate because all of my friends of passionate. >> reporter: billy welsh and merriam coker saw mounting negativity and set about juggling midterms with registering students to vote. >> even if i made a few students excited to vote, that was my goal. >> how much negativity do you see about these candidates? >> so much. it's disheartening. >> i just worry it will be a lifetime of not engaging in our government. if people have a negative perception of voting going in, i
8:25 am
don't know how we can change that. >> reporter: an uphill battle they say is worth fighting. >> there's so many people who are uninspired and so many people who don't want to vote, like we're not going to do anything. the people that believe our generation is lazy, don't care about anything, we're unambitious, they're going to be right, but that's not true. >> reporter: the message as always is simple. >> if you're a young person, go vote. even if you're not a young person, go vote. >> now, what this all translates into on election day is a big question mark. young voters are registering at similar rates of 2012 but their data says there's vastly more negativity. the idea being if young people show this time, it may be to vote against a candidate rather than for one. >> probably a lot of voters feel that way. by the way, you can see more of our red, white and you series on i'm ...

8:47 am
>> i loved it. i especially love fall. i love cooking in fall as a chef. yeah. >> you also told me this is your favorite fall recipe, so let's get -- it's a beef stew. >> it's a beef stew. can i just start by saying i've been cooking this for 16 years. it's my beef and wild mushroom stew. i'm irish, if you haven't guessed, right? >> you're not from around here, i know that. >> so i'm adding in my guinness into it as well. >> let's look at the ingredients here. >> so simple to make. beef, bacon, mushrooms, some guinness and then for my ghoulish potatoes, we need peas for the eyes, et cetera. >> they're very cute. you're sauteing and you have the bacon in here. >> i've got my bacon and shallots in here. you need two pans and this is a make-ahe make-ahead. >> why don't you cut the as i would say shallots, why don't you cut them up? >> i love them whole.
8:48 am
they become like juicy pillows. >> okay. they do, because they absorb all of the gorgeous flavor. okay. can you pop my beef in here? >> of course. >> the reason why i brown them up is because i want to intensify the flavors. >> how long does it take to get from this to this? >> three or four minutes. we do it for a couple of reasons. we want to sear in the flavor and also get that texture. >> so most of this happens in one pan to begin and then you transfer into something you're going to put into the oven. >> exactly. so you can make this three days before you eat it. you're so helpful, matt, thank you. oh, that goes in here. >> sorry. i almost messed up. by the way, we also have our tasters downstairs. >> what do you think? >> a lot of great textures in here. >> this is delicious. >> so the mushrooms, i've got oysters, chest nuts, portabello, but you could use regular mushrooms. you want to get them browned as well.

8:50 am
it's important that you put warm milk into it. the reason why you put warm milk is the potatoes become much creamier. >> i love mashed potatoes. >> and then some lovely fresh nutmeg and you mash those all up together. >> a little pepper, a little salt. >> and a little bit of mashing action like so. then you could make this ahead as well, but i'd make it the day beforehand. it doesn't freeze particularly well. >> and the fun part, you're going to make ghoulish mashed potatoes so you put them in a pastry tube. >> you can pick this up in any supermarket and then just clip off the top. the trick before you start piping is you get it very, very tight and then cut it off. i'm going to start you off and you're going to finish it. so you want to get a nice base and then you get smaller and smaller. >> you know who i can see doing this at all?
8:51 am
>> who? >> al. >> that's right. make a little potato michelin man. >> for your kids, you can put in carrots or peas. look at this. >> mine looks more like a tornado than a ghoul but that's all right. >> and then you've got your little eyes. voila. we've got a ghost. it's ghoulish and freaky. >> and it tastes how, guys? >> ghoulish. >> fantastic. thank you so much. happy halloween. >> happy halloween. >> if you want this recipe or a lot of other recipes, go to today.com/food. we are back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc. i'm going to make another one.
