7:10 am
consider that highly unethical to take that information. second, i'd be highly suspicious of that information thinking that it might be a russian intelligence operation designed to compromise our campaign. and so, third, i think i would have been in touch with the fbi. to make sure that they know who these people are and what they're trying to do to compromise our electoral process. >> but in fairness by that time you were pretty well versed on russia and all things the subject of russia. when you hear this being explained away by some as a rookie mistake, is that a suitable explanation to you? explanation to you? >> well no. first of all, you're running a presidential campaign for united states of america. no excuses for rookie mistakes. second you brought paul manafort to the meeting. he has years and decades of experience in that part of the world. he's a grown up he's dealt with russians and ukrainians.

7:12 am
thought they were going to get something. and from the russian side they could have thought, let's see if they want to play let's see if they want to engage. and i want to underscore one last thing, we've only heard one person's interpretation of what happened. we don't know what they discussed. i hope somebody will get to the bottom of that someday. >> former russian ambassador michael mcfaul great to see you, thank you very much. >> sure thanks for having me. to capitol hill now where there are new developments in the battle over health care. senateg republicans set to roll out their revised bill today and nbc's kasie hunt is on the hill for with us the latest hi kasie, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. republican senators going to be huddling one lastka time over that obamacare repeal bill which as you say they plan to release later today but there are still so many questions. what exactly are the new details in the plan? can they pass the bill? and what impact will it have on americans? after weeks ofac secret

program that some passengers are going to be very interested in. >> goes to oversold flights by reaching out to customers days in advance, offering compensation if they re-book. tom costello this is the exact issue that earned united so much bad press over the last year right? >> that's exactly right. we're thinking about dr. david dao dragged off the plane in april. this program is meant to address the overbooking problem before passengers ever arrive at the airport. july 13th and the midsummer travel rush is in high season. 2 1/2 million people a day. very often too many passengers not enough seats. now, reeling from a series of pr disasters, united airlines is experimenting with a new computer problem to solve the overbooking problem. instead of last-minute offers at the gate five days before departure, the computer identifies oversold flights and then e-mails frequent flyers traveling on simple itineraries
7:45 am
to see if their plans are flexible. if they are willing to re-book, united will offer them compensation right then. >> this could be a win-win for both the passengers and the airlines. we haven't seen something like that happen in a long time. it's going to help keep down any interruptions on the day of the flight and make everybody happy if it works. >> the new approach comes just three months after united passenger dr. david dao was dragged off a plane after refusing to give up his seat. united apologized settled with dr. dao and promised it would never happen again. ceo oscar muniz told lester holt in april overbooking is a reality in the business and customers usually do respond to financial offers to give up their seats. >> over 95% of folks do it voluntarily, we pay them to leave. it's a process the entire industry looks at. i think everyone does it fairly well. >> united said it already reduced overbookings by 90%.

just last week united had to apologize to a mother for giving away a toddler seat for which she paid $1,000 forcing him to sit on her lap. offer them cash days before the flight and they could be convinced to re-book? >> sure of course i would. much nicer than having somebody tell you after you've gotten all packed and gotten to the airport. >> so this program is only going to go for a month for now. it's a trial program, extended to mileage plus customers. but if it works well of course they could extend this out. by the way, most appealing to leisure customers. if you're a business traveler and got to get there on time this may not work for you. >> such a common sense solution. >> five days to alter your plans, that seems to make sense. tom, thank you. let us see what dylan is working on in the orange ram. >> hey, guys. kid rock -- yes, kid rock just kick off a run for u.s. senate

9:44 am
extended a couple weeks ago, in order to invite him to join the ceremonies of the 14th of july. i think it is both a symbol and very important that the president of the united states could be with us tomorrow on the occasion of a national day. and attend a military parade to which the american trip will take part. we will be also commemorating the 100th anniversary of the american troops joining world war i with the allies in france. i think it is important because beyond daily news we live in countries with roots which are deeper and go further and beyond who we are. so the preference of president trump was in my eyes not only
9:45 am
natural, and i think also -- earlier today we started by sharing part of our joint history of the museum. then we had a working session. i shall say i am extremely pleased about it. we have been able to talk about a number of topics of joint interest. and we underlined a number of shared convictions and a joint road map to work together in the coming months. we agreed to implement free and fair trade in the field, and this is what the g-20 in hamburg also expressed. we want to work together in order to implement some efficient measures to tackle dumping anywhere it is taking
9:46 am
place in all the fields by sharing all the information that we have, and making sure the european unions and united states can take the necessary measures nords to protect within the context of free trade, that we can protect all of our sectors of activities where we are active. we then had a long discussion which enabled us to cover all the topics of international policies and the challenges for the security challenges for people as well. when it comes to fighting terrorism from day one, i can say we are strongly determined to take any necessary measures in order to root out terrorism and air rad indicate it no matter where, in particularly on the internet we agreed to strengthen our action in our cooperation in fighting against propaganda. we want to get all the major
9:47 am
operators to tackle this issue. and i hope we can strengthen the cooperation between both our countries. it is with a lot of satisfaction that i heard from president trump, the same approach and services will be working together in the coming weeks and months. to have a solid action map. regarding the situation in iraq and syria. we agreed to continue to work together in order to launch together some diplomatic initiatives, to put in place a road map for what will come after the war. we talked about our role a post conflict role but initially we want to put in place a contact group in order to be more efficient. in order to support what is beak done by the united nations in
9:48 am
order to support a political road map in particular for syria after the war. it's important to put in place some political solutions. for that period of time, we know where this comes from the road map will take care of that will cover it and ask our diplomats and staff to work along those lines, so in the coming weeks, some initiatives can be taken. and are supported by the p5. we share the same intentions regarding libya like i told president trump. i very much want to take diplomatic initiatives given the situation that we know. and which requires more stability and better control over the region. with libya, i think i can say that we have the same vision. very coherent understanding of
9:49 am
the situation in the region and the same willingness to act against any form of terrorism. next climate, here we know what our disagreements are. we have expressed them on a number of occasions. i think it is important that we can continue to talk about it i very much respect the decision taken by president trump. he will work upon implementing his campaign promises and as far as i'm concerned, i remain attached to the paris accord and we'll make sure that step by step we can do everything which is in the accord. in summary, what we've been talking about, we will continue to enter with a friendly tone and informal one this evening. regarding trade and security for both our countries, the fight
9:50 am
against terrorism, stability in the near middle east and libya, i can say that we have a shared determination. the united states is extremely involved in the iraq war, and i would like to thank president trump for everything that's been done against the american troops. i would like him to know that i am fully determined to act together with him in this respect. fully determined. i very much want both our countries in these matters to increase their cooperation in the coming month. the threat we are facing is a global one. the enemies, our enemies are trying to destabilize us by anyway. and i believe this is very much at the heart of the historic alliance of our two countries and which fully justifies the
9:51 am
present of today in paris. thank you. >> thank you very much president macron. melania and i are celebration. we look very much forward to it. it will be spectacular, tomorrow bastille day. we're honored to be here in your beautiful country, and it certainly is a beautiful country. with its proud history and its magnificent people and thank you for the tour of some of the most incredible buildings anywhere in the world. i was very very -- a very beautiful thing to see. thank you. whenned french people rose up and stormed the bastille it changed the course of human history. our two nations are forever joined together by the spirit of
9:52 am
refrn revolution and the fight for freedom. france is america's first and oldest ally, a lot of people don't know that. ever since general lafayette joined the american fight for independence our fates and fortunes have been tied unequivocally together. it was a long time ago, but we are together. and i think together perhaps more so than ever the relationship is very good. this visit also commemorates another milestone. one century ago, the united states entered world war i. and when the president called me he had mentioned that fact 100 years ago, and i said mr. president, i will be there. that's a big important day, 100 years. we remember the tens of thousands of americans who gave their lives in that valiant and very difficult struggle.
9:53 am
we also pay tribute to the heroic deeds of the french troops whose courage at the battle of marn and countless other battles will never be forgotten by us. more than 1 million french soldiers laid down their lives in defense of liberty. their sacrifices and eternal tribute to france and to freedom. french and american patriots have fought together bled together and died together in the fight for our countries and our civilizations. today we face new threats from rogue regimes like north korea, iran and syria, and the governments that finance and support them. we also face grave threats from terrorist organizations that wage war on innocent lives. tomorrow will mark one year since a joyous bastille day celebration in nice. turned into a massacre.
9:54 am
we all remember that, how horrible that was. we mourn the 86 lives that were stolen and we pray for their loved ones. we also renew our resolve to stand united against these enemies of humangh humanity, and to strip them of their ideological support. today president macron and myself discussed how we can strengthen our vital security partnerships. we just had a meeting with our generals and our representatives and it went very well. france has excellent counter terrorism capabilities. the french troops are serving in places like mali to defeat these forces of murder and destruction. the united states and our allies strengthen our commitments to defeat terrorism. we're also making tremendous progress. earlier this week with the
9:55 am
strong support of the united states and the global coalition, iraq forces liberated the city of mosul from isis control. now we must work with the government of iraq and our partners and allies in the region to consolidate the gains and ensure that the victory stays a victory. unlike the last time. last week the g-20 leaders reaffirmed the right to sovereign nations to control their borders. we must be strong from within to defend ourselves from threats from the outside. the nations of the west also face domestic challenges of our own creation including vast government bureaucracy that saps the strength from our economies and societies. for this reason i applaud president macron on his courageous call for that less bureaucracy, it's a good chant.
9:56 am
less bureaucracy, we can use it too. and a europe that protects its citizens. we did not become great through regulation. and in in the united states mr. president, we also have cut regulations at a level that we've never seen before. so we're very proud of that over the last six months. but by allowing our people to follow their dreams. that's what it's all about. to achieve these dreams however, we must also confront unfair trade practices that hurt our workers and pursue trade deals that are resipciprocal and fair. both president macron and i understand our responsibility to prioritize the interests of our countries and at the same time to be respectful of the world in which we live. we live in a very complex world. we have to respect it. the united states remains committed to being a leader in environmental protection.
9:57 am
while we advance energy security and economic growth. the friendship between our two nations and ourselves, i might add, is unbreakable. our occasional disagreements are nothing compared to the immortal bonds of culture, destiny and liberty that unite us so strongly unite us also. as long as we have pride in who we are, where we've come from how we got here and what we've achieved as free and democratic nations, then there is nothing we cannot accomplish together. france helped us secure our independence. a lot of people forget. in the american revolution thousands of french soldiers fought alongside american troops so that as lafayette said liberty would have a
9:58 am
country. ever since then courageous heroes from both nations have fought for the same noble values and the same righteous cause. tomorrow the french tricolor will once again waive proudly alongside the american stars and stripes. our brave soldiers will march side by side and we will all be inspired to protect and cherish the birth right of freedom that our ancestors won for us with their sweat and with their blood. president macron thank you for inviting melania and myself to this historic celebration. and to you and your spectacular country, may god bless france. and may god bless america. thank you very much. thank you. >> thank you, mr. president.
9:59 am
>> translator: very well we will be taking full questions. neither president trump nor myself have a microphone. >> he's getting first question? president. >> translator: the question first of all, president macron regarding what you said in the press conference with chancellor merkel do you hope that president trump or do you still hope president trump could change his mind regarding the paris accord. and now president trump is it possible for you to come back to the paris accord and change your mind? next regarding your relation how would you describe it today, what about the dinner tonight.
10:00 am
is it going to be a dinner between friends? >> translator: well regarding climate. we have a number of disagreements, which are in particular due to the commitments of -- taken by president trump vis-a-vis -- so did i. i'm aware of how important that is but we talked about our disagreement. we discussed the matter even before president trump reached a decision. next should that have an impact on the discussions we're having on all other topics? no absolutely not. this is the reason why we share the same views and some major common goals on many other topics or all other topics which we've been discussing today, and we shall move forward together. next and,
