7:02 am
interview brad pitt over the last 10 or 15 years knows he doesn't love to talk about his personal life. that's why this interview seems so candid and revealing. >> yeah. he gets introspective. it's interesting to hear that. we're going to have that in a couple of moments. man, you would think it's november 2016. it's clinton versus trump all over again. >> we're going to talk about that in a second. we're going to start with a wave of headlines coming out of the white house. fresh obstacles to the health care system, to his phone call with vladimir putin. and as savannah just referenced, a war of words with hillary clinton. we have complete coverage, starting with peter alexander. good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt. good morning to you. the two presidents, putin and trump, eyeing a possible personal meeting. while top white house aides have shied away from setting another artificial deadline, as they describe it, for a health care bill. house republicans may be running into another wall. looking for last-minute tweaks,
7:03 am
with new indications they are short with the necessary votes to pass it. this morning, the latest republican attempt to overhaul obamacare, appears to be in critical condition. 21 now oppose the bill. with no democrats onboard. republicans can only afford 22 defections. president trump in the rose garden, still searching for his first major legislative victory. >> how is health care coming, folks? we moving along? i think it's time now, right? >> reporter: during a ceremony to celebrate the air force academy football team, boasting about the budget compromise that avoids the government shutdown. >> this is what winning looks like, something you folks really know a lot about. >> reporter: the spending bill does not include more than $1 billion the president wanted for a border wall. the budget director saying the president came through on his promises.
7:04 am
>> we're building this. >> reporter: mr. trump venting his frustration with democrats. the government needs a good shutdown to fix the government's mess. >> he negotiated in good faith with the democrats and they went out to try to spike the football and make him look bad. >> reporter: following that high-stakes call between vladimir putin and trump, word of a russian rendezvous today. the leaders are trying to schedule what would be their first face-to-face meeting at the g20 summit in germany this july. matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you very much. overnight, president trump fired back on twitter comments from hillary clinton on the presidential election. he said she was on her way to winning before two major outcomes changed the election. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. hillary clinton in her most candid comments about her loss. not holding back about the man who defeated rs tuesday night a
7:05 am
planned parenthood event. >> forwards, resist. insist. persist. enlist. >> reporter: earlier tuesday, declaring she is back. >> i'm now back to being an activist citizen. and part of the resistance. >> reporter: a no-holds-barred clinton, taking on donald trump. >> you know, health care is complicated. and so is foreign policy. >> reporter: including the president's talk of meeting with north korea's kim jong-un. >> negotiations are critical. but they have to be part of a broader strategy, not just thrown out on a tweet some morning, hey, let's get together and see if we can't get along. >> reporter: clinton almost taunting the president to tweet at her instead, while taking a jab of his repeated references to winning the electoral college. >> he should worry less about the election and my winning the popular than doing some other things. >> president trump taking the bait. tweeting overnight about his victory.
7:06 am
fbi director comey was the best thing that ever happened the hillary clinton. in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds. the phony trump russian story was an excuse used by the democratic as justification for losing the election. perhaps trump just ran a great campaign. but clinton deflecting blame for her loss. >> oh, of course. i take absolute personal responsibility. i was the candidate. but i was on the way to winning, until a combination of jim comey's letter on october 28th. and russian wikileaks raised doubt in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off. >> reporter: clinton never mentioning her failure to inspire voters in former blue states like wisconsin, michigan or pennsylvania. or why she lost a majority of white college-educated women? >> did i make mistakes? oh, my gosh, yes. you'll read my confession. but the reason i believe we lost were the intervening events in the last ten days.
7:07 am
>> reporter: comey is testifying today and may well being asked about clinton's charge. but even some former clinton aides say she is not really confronting her own political failings for her unexpected defeat. a loss from which, they say, she has not recovered. savannah? >> andrea mitchell in washington. thank you. let's bring in nicolle wallace and steve kornacki. good to see you both. let me start with both of you and the same question. and fairly simple. did hillary clinton strike the right tone? did she draw the right line in terms of the blame she took and the blame she laid at the feet of others? >> i think she got it half-right. it was the most honestly i've seen her describe the process in which she's going to confess all the things she did wrong. but i don't think it serves-i mean he's the worst winner i've ever seen. and she's very publicly going through the ten stages of grief. which will not -- her supporters are still upset. but she's not winning over any converts. >> what did you think? >> if that's truly how she assesses the situation, she
7:08 am
thinks she was all set to win except for james comey, give her credit for being honest about it. yes. she didn't grapple with some of the bigger things with this election. the simplest one is i cannot think of an election in modern american history, where the climate was more anti-establishment than it was in 2016. and hillary clinton had 25 years of experience, not just on the national political stage but at the center of it. and i think that was a major ingredient. i didn't hear her grapple at all with that yesterday. >> what about president trump. i mean she kind of trolled him a little bit by saying i won the popular vote. she all but dared him to tweet to her. and he took the bait. >> she's making the same argument she made in that debate where she said, we can't have a commander in chief who can't be baited with a tweet. the voters of michigan and wisconsin thought it was a risk they could take. she got little stuff wrong, like logistics. her plane didn't land in the right states. she needed to make -- the places where i've been interviewing
7:09 am
trump democrats, michigan, wisconsin, you know, the states that the she lost are states where democrats have not made any gains. and i'm not sure her appearance yesterday is going to help them there. >> let's pretend the election is over because it is. and let's get to the business of running the government and funding it. if you're a republican member of congress, steve. you're one of the majority in the house and the senate, how do you feel about the president's tweet where he says quote our country needs a good shutdown in september to fix mess? >> this is donald trump responding not just to democrats taunting him. but he's got talk radio. he's got rush limbaugh on conservative radio saying hey trump got rolled on this budget deal and donald trump doesn't like to hear that. the only thing he can come up with is hey the next time this funding comes around we're going to do it differently. we're going to give them the shutdown. if you're a republican on capitol hill, what do you want to do between now and september? you want tax reform done. that's where you want your focus. that's where you want your emphasis. he's side tracking you with talk of a shutdown. >> good to talk to you as always. throwing it back to november

2016. thank you. breaking overnight, a suicide car bomber struck a u.s. military convoy in afghanistan, killed at least eight civilians and injured three american service members. afghan officials say another 25 afghan civilians were in the wounded in the rush hour attack that happened near the u.s. embassy in kabul. isis has claimed responsibility for the attack. there's shock waves this morning. new developments tied to a number of police-involved shootings across the country. let's begin in baton rouge, louisiana. where the justice department has decided it will not bring charges against two white police officers who shot and killed an african-american man back in july. nbc's gabe gutierrez is outside the convenience store where that shooting took place. gabe, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. this city had been bracing for the justice department's decision for days. following last year's protests. attorneys for the family of alton sterling thought they would be among the first to know
7:11 am
but they now say they have yet to be officially notified. word leaked out, outrage was immediate. the news spread quickly overnight. that no charges would be filed against the two police officers who shot alton sterling. through the night -- >> black lives matter. >> reporter: protesters holding an emotional vigil, at the convenience store where sterling was killed. >> it's been almost a year. and we're still suffering like it happened yesterday! >> reporter: last july police were sent to the store after a 911 caller told them someone matching sterling's description had pulled a gun. on the video, the officers can be seen wrestling sterling down to the ground and holding him down. but what happened before the graphic recording of the shooting is unknown. >> shots fired. >> reporter: an officer can be seen pulling something from sterling's pocket. police say it was a gun and sterling was reaching for it. back then, i talked with the owner of the convenience store. did you see mr. sterling reach for that gun? or threaten the officers with that gun?
7:12 am
>> no. no. >> reporter: for days after the shooting, protesters filled the streets. dozens of arrests were made. almost immediately the justice department opened a civil rights investigation. now, sources familiar with the case tell nbc news, prosecutors concluded there isn't enough evidence to bring charges. but sterling's sister, reached by phone, says the officers should be arrested. >> it's not okay with me. because now y'all are going to let these two officers walk, and that's the end of it. i guarantee you, if i shot somebody, and they didn't even point the gun at me on anything of that sort, i'd be in jail. so, why they [ bleep ] not in jail? >> reporter: city officials are now pleading for calm. overnight there were peaceful protests in and around this convenience store. the state could still bring charges against those two officers. but that decision would be up to louisiana's attorney general. matt and savannah? >> gabe, thank you very much. now, to texas, where police have fired the officer who shot

talk to your advisor about a brighter financial future. we're back now, 7:42, with brad pitt braeaking his silence speaking out about his split from angelina jolie. >> "gq" was with him during a photo shoot. in a candid interview, he talks about why he stopped drinking and started therapy. brad pitt is speaking out in the summer issue of "gq style." only once does he mention angelina jolie by name. but he talks about life since his marriage broke up. at first, he didn't want to spend time in the home he shared with his family. instead, spending a month and a half crashing with a friend. he tells "gq style" this house
7:43 am
was crazy. voices and bangs coming from everywhere. and then, there's dies like this. very, very solemn. xep f except for a few occasions, like a surprise appearance at the golden globe awards, he has remained out of the limelight. instead, an intropektive bite says he wants to create art and work on his film, "war machine." he reveals he just started therapy, going through two therapists until he found the right one. i love it, he tells the magazine. the news created shock waves when jolie filed for divorce last september, just days after an incident on the family's private jet. pitt was investigated for allegations of physical abuse and was later cleared by the fbi and l.a. family and child services. a court eventually ordered family counseling. speculation only grew around the cause of the couple's split, including rumors of infidelity
7:44 am
and substance abuse. pitt said, i was boozing too much. i'm happy it's been half a year, which is bittersweet. i had to step away for a minute. and truthfully, i could drink a russian under the table with his own vodka. i was a professional. i was good. this period is about looking at my weaknesses and failures. jolie for her part has said very little. but she and pitt agree, the most important thing is protecting their six children. in february, she told bbc world news -- >> we are a family. we will always be a family. and we will get through this time. and hopefully be a stronger family for it. >> reporter: earlier this year, the actors decided to seal any court documents related to custody. pitt says, i heard one lawyer say, no one wins in court. fortunately, my partner in agrees. it's very, very jarring for the kids to suddenly have their family ripped apart. >> and pitt tells "gq style" his
7:45 am
focus is on his kids. family first, people on their death beds done talk about what they obtained. they talk about their loved ones. he hopes everyone comes out of this stronger and better people. >> we have more with will welch. >> good morning. >> it's quite the interview. and you do see him open up. he's not throwing his heart out on to the table. but he's really sharing some personal revolutions he seems to be going through in real-time. >> he's working through his feelings with the writer who interviewed brad pitt at home. and that's -- he's one of the most famous actors in the world. but there's an element of rawness. and he's going through dark night of the soul. what is exciting about this interview and a great example for our readers is he is coming to terms and confronting his feelings in a way he never has before. that's something, if we can learn to get our emotional lives in order, and that family and
7:46 am
career are what follow that. he's a living example of that. he says, i won the lottery. but then, there are other ways in which he was lost. so, to watch a guy at age 53 make that adjustment, i think is really interesting and a good example. >> this may be redundant, will. what caught my attention, was an eight-day photo shoot. that's a long time to spend with someone like brad pitt. you would say that the place he's in right at this moment is what? >> well, you know, he was open to a collaboration. so much of the celebrity work these days is transactional. and what we brought to him was an art project with the photographer, ryan mcginley. we were thinking what we wanted to do with our summer issue, we are in a divided country. and we wanted to find a common ground that we can celebrate, which became the national parks. that's what i presented to the photographer and to brat pitt. that's what he signed on for. he said it was his dream to ride his motorcycle through white
7:47 am
sands national park. so, we took him to do that. and you see, there's a different level of collaboration with us. >> i was struck at how open he was about the alcohol abuse and all the other things. and just how introspective he seemed to be in this interview. were you surprised by all of that? >> yeah. there was a certain amount of trust built up over the course of the shoot. that's just the place he's in. i think what's really commendable, he's coming from a place of, i'm done hiding. i'm done using crutches. i'm ready to look this in the eye. and that could have just been something that he kept private. but in this case, he felt compelled and felt like it was the right time to share that. and i think that's exciting for all of us. >> real quickly. we were talking. is there any element here that you think this is a message he is sending out to angelina that, i've done a lot of soul-searching and i'm in a better place. and maybe is there some effort --
7:48 am
>> it did have the whiff of reconciliation. maybe we're projecting. >> you guys are -- of course, everybody is invited to read this interview and interpret it however they want. i didn't get that sense. i felt like this is a guy who has been stripped to his foundations. and he's looking to build it back and move forward. >> fascinating interview. >> really nice. >> congrats, will. >> summer issue of "gq ♪ what would you do if i sang ♪ ♪ out of tune

9:16 am
the white house from president trump and palestinian leader mahmoud abbas. the two came face to face for the first time earlier, a meeting the white house hopes will lead to a restart on middle east peace talks. east peace talks. let's take you to the roosevelt room now. >> president abbas stood with a courageous peacemaker. then israeli prime minister rabine. here at the white house, president abbas signed a declaration of principles, very important, which laid the foundation for peace between the israelis and palestinians. the president and mr. president, you signed your name to the first israeli/palestinian peace agreement. you remember that well, right? and i want to support you in being the palestinian leader who signs his name to the final and most important peace agreement that brings safety, stability,
9:17 am
prosperity, to both peoples and to the region. i'm committed to working with israel and the palestinians to reach an agreement, but any agreement cannot be imposed by the united states or by any other nation. the palestinians and israelis must work together to reach an agreement that allows both peoples to live, worship and thrive and prosper in peace. and i will do whatever is necessary to facilitate the agreement to mediate, to arbitrate anything they would like to do, but i would love to be a mediator or an ash ray or the -- arbitrator to get this done. peace also means isis is a threat to all groups who cherish human life. president abbas has spoken out
9:18 am
about these groups and we will continue to build our palestinian forces to counter and defeat terrorism. i also applaud the palestinian authorities continued coordination with israel. they get along unbelievably well. i had meetings and at these meetings i was actually very impressed and somewhat surprised at how well they get along. they work together beautifully. but there can be no lasting peace until the palestinian leaders speak in a unified voice against incitement to violate and violence and hate. there's such hatred. but hopefully there won't be such hatred for very long. all children of god must be taught to value and respect human life and condemn all of those who target the innocent. as part of our efforts to move
9:19 am
forward toward peace today, we will also discuss my administration's effort to help unlock the potential of the palestinian people through new economic opportunities. lastly, i want to note the positive ongoing partnership between the united states and the palestinians on a range of issues, private sector development and job creation, regional security, counter terrorism and the rule of law, all of which are essential to moving forward toward peace. i welcome president abbas here today as a demonstration of that partnership, that very specific partnership that we all need to make it all work. and i look forward to welcoming him back as a great mark of progress and ultimately toward the signing of a document with the israelis, with israel, toward peace.
9:20 am
we want to create peace between israel and the palestinians. we will get it done. we will be working so hard to get it done. it's been a long time. and we will be working diligently. and i think there's a very, very good chance and i think you feel the same way, mr. president, thank you very much. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, i would like to thank you for the honorable invitation to come and meet with you. and i look much forward to working with you in order to come to the deal, the historic
9:21 am
deal, to bring about peace. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, our strategic option, our strategic choice is to bring about peace based on the vision of the two states, a palestinian state with its capital of east jerusalem that lives in peace and stability with the state of israel based on the borders of 1967. [ speaking foreign language ]
9:22 am
[ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, for us to bring about a comprehensive and just peace based on the two-state solution, such matter would give a great emphasis to thearab peace and other international efforts as well as enable to fight and deter terrorism and fight the criminal isis group, isis that
9:23 am
the totally innocent and has nothing to do with our noble religion. and that also, if we create peace that is just and comprehensive, that will also mean the arab and islamic countries will have normal relations with israel based as stipulated in the previous arab summit, the latest was the arab summit in jordan. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, we believe that we are capable and able to bring about success to our efforts because, mr.
9:24 am
president, you have the determination and you have the desire to see this come to fruition and to become successful. and we, mr. president, god-willing, we are coming into a new opportunity, a new horizon, that would enable us to bring about peace in that regard. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, as far as the affirment or solution, we believe that this
9:25 am
is possible and able to be resolved. i am firmly believing that this is possibly, we are able to resolve it and i also believe that we will be able to resolve the issue of the refugees and issue of the prisoners. according to the international law, according to the terms of the international law, the international legitimacy and the various relevant references, in terms of reference in that regard, and based on what is stipulated in the previous treaties and agreements, that no unilateral steps must be taken to get ahead of the agreement and discussing those issues. [ speaking foreign language ]
9:26 am
[ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, it's about time for israel to end its occupation of our people and of our land. after 50 years, we are the only remaining people in the world that still live under occupation. we are aspiring and want to achieve our freedom, our dignity and our right to self-determination. and we also want for israel to recognize the palestinian state just as the palestinian people recognize the state of israel. [ speaking foreign language ]
9:27 am
>> translator: mr. president, i affirm to you that you are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren, on a culture of peace. and we are endeavoring to bring about security, freedom and peace for our children to live like the other children in the world, along with the israeli children in peace, freedom and security. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, i bring with me today the message
9:28 am
of the suffering of my people as well as their aspirations and hope. the hopes and aspirations of the palestinian people from the holy land. from that land were the three modest religions and the yjewis, faith, the christian faith and the muslim faith to move target in the environment of stability, peace and love for all. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: mr. president, i
9:29 am
believe that we are capable under your leadership and your stewardship to your courageous stewardship and your wisdom, as well as your great negotiating ability, i believe with the grace of god and with all of your efforts, we believe that we can become, we can be partners, true partners to you, to bring about a historic peace treaty under your stewardship to bring about peace. >> now, mr. president, we have hope. >> thank you very much. so we're going to start a process, we've spoken to netanyahu and many of the great israeli leaders. we have spoken with moany of yor
9:30 am
great representatives. many of them are here with us today for lunch. we will start a process which hopefully will lead to peace over the course of my lifetime, i've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the israelis and the palestinians. let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay? >> okay. >> good. thank you. thank you very much, everybody. thank you. thank you. >> as expected, no questions from president trump, no questions being answered by president trump and palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas after making joint statements, both men optimistic about the future and the possibility of a peace deal. notably, president abbas talking about a two-state solution. we didn't hear that from president trump. let's go to correspondent kristen welker there at the white house on the north lawn. how much is this administration putting in this peace effort, which, of course, thwarted the previous administration? >> reporter: they are putting a
9:31 am
lot into this peace effort, lester. i've been speaking to senior administers officials who say this is a key priority for this president. in fact, he has tapped his son-in-law jared kushner with leading that charge. a lot of people have wondered if he has enough credentials to take that on. he's someone who has no government experience. he is someone who is an observant jew, though, and the president trusts him and believes he is the right person for this job. but there are a number of sticking points. you talk about the two-state solution. that's one of them. during this lunch that these two leaders are about to have, we anticipate that president trump is going to press president abbas on halting payments by the plo for militants who are being jailed by israelis. that's a major sticking point for the palestinian -- for the israelis. on the other hand, president abbas will likely press president trump on these continued israeli settlements.
9:32 am
that royals palestine januaripa well as them moving the capital from tel aviv to jerusalem. this is a high-stakes meeting, lester, one of the key priorities for the new president. >> speaking of complicated issues, health care. we understand the president has been doing some personal lobbying on behalf of trying to get a deal. where do you think this stands? >> reporter: the president has been working the phones overnight trying to convert the no votes to yes for the new plan to repeal and replace obamacare. and one of the key sticking points there has to deal with pre-existing conditions. the bill could allow insurance companies to increase payments for those who have pre-existing conditions. we know that there is an amendment in the works to try to deal with that for lawmakers here at the white house today, talking to president trump about that amendment, they came out and talked to reporters
9:33 am
afterwards and said the president was sold on this amendment, but the question is, can they get to 216 votes? at this point in time, we don't believe they have the votes yet, but again, lester, this is another domestic priority for this president. will he get it done by the end of the week? it's a big question. >> kristen welker, thank you. we'll have full coverage throughout the day on msnbc and on nbcnews.com and a complete wrap-up tonight onnuts. and soweweet potato. >> these are real portions. >> and you will feel satisfied. and i love this breakfast. this is my apple protein pancakes. >> i've had those. they're not too shabby. pretty good. >> and packed with 20 grams of protein. and a huge salad. the key is lots of filling produce. and this is sausage, sauteed with peppers and onions. and snacks are allowed.
