7:02 am
with top democrats after the democrats claimed a late-night dinner resulted in a deal on immigration and border security and that wall. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is at the white house for us. peter, good morning. >> matt, savannah, good morning to you. exactly what happened last night? that depends who you ask. the democratic leaders declaring they effectively made a deal with the president to extend protections for young undocumented immigrants. president trump saying not exactly but even the idea that the president is softening his stand on immigration is infuriating fierce conservatives, one of them calling it the art of the steal. this morning a political back-and-forth over the art of the deal. >> the wall will come later. >> reporter: president trump making these comment this is morning while leaving for florida to assess hurricane damage. just hours after tweeting "no deal was made last night on daca, massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. would be subject to vote." it comes after the president late wednesday working around
7:03 am
his own party hosted chuck schumer and nancy pelosi at the white house. on the menu, tax reform, border security, infrastructure, trade and how to resolve the dispute over so-called dreamers. after the administration's move to end the obama era policy, protecting young undocumented immigrants from deportation. after the sit down, the democratic leaders announcing "we agreed to enshrine the protections of daca into law quickly and to work out a package of border security excludeing the wall that's acceptable to both sides." some republicans outraged congressman steve king tweeted "if the story is correct, trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable and disillusioned beyond repair. no promise is credible." others praising the president, like senator jeff flake, "kudos to potus for pursuing an agreement that will protect d.r.e.a.m.ers from deportation." meanwhile, the white house pushed back saying excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to. schumer and pelosi releasing a statement saying in part "while
7:04 am
both sides agree the wall would not be any part of this agreement, the president made clear he intends to pursue it at a later time and we made clear we would continue to oppose it." all of it a strategic shift from the president, shocking the capitol last week by cutting a deal with the democrats on a debt ceiling extension, pulling the rug from under the gop. the president later running with pelosi requests he tweet reassurance to the nearly 800,000 d.r.e.a.m.ers. his press secretary praising her boss by trashing his predecessor. >> this president has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than obama did in eight years. >> reporter: frustrated by hoe slowly things are getting done, including the republican's failure to repeal and replace obamacare. not long ago trump mocked schumer as the head clown, pelosi as a loser. >> i think she's incompetent, actually. >> reporter: now he's kossi icop to the democrat due wrote. >> we would like something to happen. >> reporter: even sounding like
7:05 am
a democrat on taxes signaling the rich might pay more. >> if they have to go higher, they'll go higher, frankly. >> reporter: as for concerns from skeptical conservatives he might abandon them -- >> i'm a conservative and i'm not skeptical and i think if we can do things in a bipartisan matter, that will be great. >> the president on twitter this morning again insisting no deal is done yet. writing "the wall will continue to be built and adding about those dreamers, does anybody really want to throw out good and educated accomplished young people, some serving in the military. really?" matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you. let's bring in kasie hunt. kasie, good morning to you. it's confusing and it seems to boil down to three words in that democratic statement "excluding the wall." do we have a deal or no deal? >> good morning, matt and savannah. it sounds as though we have the beginnings of what could end up being a deal but we have so much confusion about what the president wants, what he
7:06 am
promised to democrats over dinner and what republicans are going to do. don't forget at the end of the day they control whether or not these kids are going to find a legislative fix. you add this to what the president was saying to our chuck todd just a year or two ago. i want you to look at that and then we'll talk about it. >> the dream act executive order, daca. >> we have to make a whole new set of standards -- >> you'll split up families? you'll deport children? >> no, we'll keep the families together. we have to keep the families together. >> but you'll keep them together out -- >> but they have to go. >> reporter: that is the opposite of what the president is saying this morning which is hey, we want to find a way to keep these kids here but the most important piece of this and chuck schumer's office has been talking about this, he the senate minority leader that the president apparently told democrats that he won't require them to offer money to build the wall in this package in exchange for a fix for these dreamer
7:07 am
kids. and that is something that might allow democratic votes for such a bill. we'll have to see how the actual details unfold but i do think that regardless of how confusing it may be marks an important turning point in these negotiations. matt, savannah? >> all right, kasie, thank you very much. >> thank you, kasie. a lot more to get to including new information on wednesday's deadly school shooting in washington state. we're learning more about the teenage suspected in custody and the victim. nbc's joe fryer is at the scene for us this morning. joe, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning, classes here are canceled today as authorities investigate the shooting. three students remain hospitalized, recovering from gunshot wounds and a fourth classmate who was killed is being called a hero for trying to stop the shooter. just hours after gun fire broke out inside this washington state school, the rockford community held emotional vigils to honor the victims, all of them shot, authorities say, by a fellow student.
7:08 am
>> we ask for that peace to be with all of those who are involved. >> reporter: the sheriff says the teenage student came to freeman high school wednesday morning heavily armed. he tried to fire one gun but it jammed. >> he went to his next weapon. a student walked up to him, engaged him and he was shot and did not survive. >> as students took cover inside classrooms, the sheriff says the armed student fired more shots down a hallway. chris tan crist was there. >> it sounded like a firecracker going on. i remember lights going off at kids' head point blank. >> reporter: one student was killed, three more shot and injured? >> one in the back, one in the arm. >> reporter: panicked parents rushed to the school, most were reunited with their traumatized kids. authorities say the shooter was stopped by a school custodian who stepped in and ordered him
7:09 am
to surrender. officials have not released the name of the suspect, seen here in handcuffs. nbc is not identifying him because he's a juvenile but michael harper says he knows the shooter. >> one of my best friends brought a gun in a duffel bag to school. >> reporter: harper says the alleged suspect had been watching documentaries on school shootings and students who know the suspect confirm his youtube channel features these videos, since deleted, which show him firing guns. the investigation is just getting started but the sheriff says the suspect may have brought the guns to the school because of a bullying situation. >> we need to figure out what's gone wrong with our society that our children decide that they need to take weapons to deal with the issues that they're facing. >> the suspect is being held in a juvenile detention facility just one day before the shooting this school held a lockdown drill to prepare for this exact situation. officials say that may have
7:10 am
helped save a number of lives. matt and savannah, back to you. >> joe, thank you. another major story we're covering, the ongoing impact of hurricane irma. a criminal investigation has been launched into the deaths of eight residents at a nursing ho. three days after the storm made landfall. this as the ongoing recovery efforts ramp up. we have two reports this morning beginning with nbc's gabe gutierrez. gabe, good morning. >> matt, good morning. the state has now shut this place down, at least for now. we're learning new details about this facility that apparently had issues before. a 2016 inspection report found that it had failed to properly maintain its emergency generator and local firefighters apparently knew this facility well. this morning, a criminal investigation is under way to find out exactly what killed at least eight senior citizens found inside a sweltering nursing home in florida days after hurricane irma. >> the ac unit in this place
7:11 am
behind us under investigation was not working and they were utilizing portable ac units. >> there are well over 100 people being evacuated from a nursing facility. >> reporter: 158 residents evacuated from the rehabilitation center at hollywood hills, many in wheelchairs and stretchers, some suffering from dehydration and heat-related issues. the nearby hospital ordering a mass casualty protocol to deal with the large number of incoming patients. the fire department saying it got its first call at 3:00 a.m., a report of a heart attack, then another call an hour later reporting breathing problems then another at 6:15 firefighters started evacuating the facility as frantic relatives desperately tried to get answers. >> felt like 110, 115 degrees in there. >> reporter: many wondering why the residents weren't moved sooner with the area's heat index reaching a stifling 87 degrees overnight and a hospital with power literally across the street. >> i think it is an emerging
7:12 am
scandal of gargantuan proportions. >> reporter: in the past year alone, authorities say fire rescue crews have responded to the facility 127 times. >> in my opinion, that's excessive. >> reporter: the nursing home defending its staff and blaming irma for knocking out a transformer that powered the ac system. the facility's administrator saying "we are fully cooperating with authorities to figure out what went wrong." saying workers "diligently prepared for the impact of hurricane irma." adding "the center immediately contacted florida power and light and our staff continually checked on our residents' well-being." the mayor doesn't buy it. >> it was human failure on the part of the medical staff supervising these folks to not sound the alarm more broadly, more loudly way earlier. >> reporter: the deceased ranging in age from 71 to 99. among them, 84-year-old betty hibbert, and the oldest, albertina vega. >> why they didn't call me to
7:13 am
pick her, to go to pick her if they have any problem with the air conditioning? >> reporter: today with a high near 90 degrees and still so many without power across the state, an urgent push to protect florida's most vulnerable. the city of hollywood has inspected dozens of other assisted living facilities to check for similar issues. a small one was evacuated yesterday, so was a larger one in nearby north miami beach and matt and savannah, it turns out about 150 of the state's nearly 700 nursing homes are still without power. without full power. back to you. >> gabe gutierrez on this tragic story. gabe, thank you very much. >> crews are racing to restore power not only in florida but across the caribbean with so many islands suffered catastrophic damage gadi schwartz is in key west with the recovery efforts. good morning. >> reporter: goecod morning, afr eight deaths reported in the
7:14 am
florida keys, we know two of them happened in key west. a lot of these neighbors were covered in downed trees, now key west is digging out even as they run dangerously low on supplies. days after hurricane irma unleashed her fury on florida, the sweet sound of relief. military choppers arriving in a key west strip mall to a line of floridians desperate for the basics. >> i was so thirsty, thank god for the army. >> reporter: navy crews fresh from helping hurricane harvey victims in texas now providing relief in florida. what's it like to be out here helping out? >> this is why people join the navy, to do this sort of thing. it's an incredible feeling. >> reporter: people need water, power, fuel. cell service has been cut off to most of the island chain. >> everything's down and gone. everything's blocked, telephone po poles are down. >> reporter: the national guard out in force helping wherever they can.
7:15 am
>> it's devastation out here so we're taking it street by street. >> reporter: along the highway, neighbors feeding neighbors. >> it feels good to be able to help somebody else because this is what we do in the keys. we help other people. >> reporter: other parts of florida are suffering, too. bonita springs and middleburg still underwater. >> we're trying to move assets to those affected as fast as possible. >> reporter: in jacksonville, soggy and rotting houses. in north miami, water main breaks city wide prompting a boil-water ordnance. power crews still working on restoring electricity to millions while all hands pitching in for the cleanup. but as bad as the keys and other parts of florida have been hit, the caribbean took the brunt of the storm. on tortola, 90% of homes and businesses gone. families on antigua and barbuda struggling to find basic supplies. "there's nothing left" she says. loved ones of all types struggling. on st. thomas, an 18-hour curfew

7:17 am
legal experts say prosecutors could be using the younger flynn to pressure his father into divulging evidence about other high-level targets, including president trump. attorneys for michael flynn and his son declined to comment. new controversy surrounding the treasury secretary this morning. steven mnuchin asked for a government plane to use during his honeymoon vacation in europe earlier this year. operating such a jet can cost about $25,000 per hour. well, according to a treasury spokesperson, mnuchin considered using a military plane because he needed to access secure communications as part of his national security duties. the request was withdrawn after another secure communications option was identified during the secretary's extended travel. now to a bizarre accident on the tarmac at charlotte-douglas airport in north carolina. airport officials say an american airlines commuter plane was taxiing to the gate on wednesday when a tug driver slammed into the wig of the plane. the tug is that vehicle that's
7:18 am
used to push and pull airplanes. the driver was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition. no one on the plane was hurt. some flights were delayed as a result of that accident. an investigation under way let's check our weather for the first time. hi. >> we're talking about heat that will be building and humidity will be building in florida where -- when they do not need it given that, of course, a lot of folks still without power. it's going to feel like it's near 100 degrees from daytona beach all the way down to key west today. that continues tomorrow, really, daytona beach, tampa will feel like 100, 99 in naples, key west looking at heat index of 99 degrees and it continues into saturday. here's the latest on jose. right now a category one storm, 510 miles south-southwest to bermuda. it brings it through between bermuda and cape hatteras but as we look at the difference between the european model and the united states model, the european model now brings it a little bit closer by wednesday to the coastline of the u.s.

7:32 am
it is affecting nearly every adult in the united states. one question gaining some traction, if so many social security numbers have now been compromised, is it time to actually just do away with them all together? nbc's tom costello has been working the story since it broke. good morning to you. >> morning. the white and blue cards we all have were never meant to be a tax id or health care number, but now there is a good chance our numbers have all been stolen, and that makes us all very vulnerable. the worst hack of personal data in u.s. history. >> this concerns equifax. >> gets worse by the day. >> welcome to the equifax automated security freeze system. >> with the nation's three credit agencies swamped with calls from millions of americans trying to put a fast freeze on their credit reports. 143 million names, social securitys, dobs, addresses, drivers licenses, all stolen. >> what we've seen here is the most outrageous, the most
7:33 am
egregious example of a company not doing what it needs to do when it comes to protecting consumer information. >> in a usa today editorial, equifax ceo writes, we are devoting extraordinary resources to make sure this kind of incident doesn't happen again. meanwhile, those blue and white social security cards we all have were first issued in 1935 when fdr was president. they haven't changed much. but if they have all been stolen, is it time for a 21st century high-tech makeover. >> shouldn't be harder to get into my iphone than it is to hack my social security number. >> over the years, social security numbers morphed into a national identification number. >> our social security number for somebody like me is linked to our whole life. should we change that? absolutely. >> without one, you can't get a job, take out a loan, buy a house, file taxes, get into college or get health insurance. >> i think we can finally drive a stake through the heart of this system. social security numbers were never meant to be a secret.
7:34 am
never meant to be any security tool. now they probably never will be again. >> may be up to the financial industry to come up with secure ways to identify identities. constantly changing electronic numbers, two and three step authentications and even iris scans. is this going the wakeup call when the country decides it is time to move beyond social security numbers? >> it needs to be the wakeup call. we repeatedly, year after year, have these wakeup calls and we hit the snooze button. there's no more snooze buttons. >> here's the catch, our social security numbers make it easy to run fast credit checks, so customers can make impulse buys or sign up in store for the credit cards. if that changes, retailers could feel the impact very, very quickly. guys? >> a lot of folks are urging you to do a credit freeze. what does that mean? how do you do it? >> i've done it. here's what you do. go online or you call the
7:35 am
nation's three credit bureaus. yes, call them all. it is an automated service. they've been flooded with requests, so it does take time. you type in your state, your social security, numerical address, all of that, which means only businesses you already do business with can have access to your credit. criminals are locked out. but if a bank or company needs to run a legitimate credit check, like you need to take out a car loan or are applying to college, you need to unfreeze the report. don't forget it. >> does this cost anything, to freeze and unfreeze? >> equifax right now is freezing for free. some agencies charge $5 to $10 to freeze and unfreeze, which can be a hassle and it adds up. you have to remember your credit is frozen if you suddenly need the credit. the other thing, you have to remember your pin number, which they will give you when you freeze. write it down. put it in a secure place. because in a year or two or three, you need the pin number again to unfreeze.
7:36 am
>> by the way, equifax better be freezing for free. >> i'll say. >> that would be a disaster. tom, thank you. mr. roker, check of the weather? >> yes. this is free. let's show ya. >> did it come up? i didn't see it. >> it did come up, tom. it's okay. good on you. so remnants of irma now making its way through the northeast. it's not going to be a big problem as it pushes through some pop-up showers, maybe a thunderstorm or two later this afternoon into the evening hours. rest of the country, we are looking at some pretty dense fog. st. louis on into chicago, probably airport delays there. again, hot and humid down through florida. not good news there. some mountain snows developing out west. we'll look at that in the next half hour. it'l good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. we do start out with some clouds across the bay area and as we take a live look outside at the golden gate bridge no showers,

8:07 am
your flu shot. should they still do that and when? >> yes, affirmatively, cdc which funded this, strongly continue to endorse the flu vaccine at any time during pregnancy. previous, lots of data, former studies as well as ongoing studies have demonstrated the safety of the flu vaccine, if you remember, too, influenza i should say pregnant women are much more vulnerable to serious implication of flurngsz the best strategy is to have a vaccine during pregnancy because infants can't get the vaccine until they are six months of age. >> are there some long-term studies going into effect to see if there is a link between these two? >> there is an ongoing study that covers the seasons 2012 to 2015 is that we will be reporting on in hopefully 2018 and 2019. but again the bottom line, based on all the previous vast

8:34 am
series of visitors disrupts them. the rest of the plot is kept secret. in a way, you need a key, rosetta stone or decoder ring. >> you can google any of my interviews, and i have spilled the allegory in almost all of them. >> your character is named mother, and people say that that is meant to represent mother nature. i don't want to give a plot line away, but it does not end well for mother. so is it kind of a statement on environmental issues? >> yeah. it's -- i mean -- >> is it larger than that, of humanity? >> it is everything. before the movie was called "mother," it was called "day six." god created the world in six days. to me, it is the beginning and the end, which we have not reached yet. the end of the universe. so in that, there's the creation of man, there's the creation of religion. that house and i are one
8:35 am
organize n organize n organism. >> the house has a heart beat. i just got that. >> yeah, i did, too. >> what were you doing in their luggage? >> when you read the script, what was your reaction? >> i was like, i don't want this in my home. it's an assault. it is really assaulting. that's what makes it a masterpiece. that's what makes darren so brilliant. >> darren is the director and jennifer's boyfriend, darren a aronofsky. it has lawrence exploring deep depths. >> nobody should feel what you see in the movie. yeah, it was hard. i had to listen to christmas music coming out of that. >> i also heard you watched the kardashians to just -- >> i did. i had a kardashian tent. i didn't end up using the kardashians. i surpassed the kardashians. >> needed more. >> yeah. i ended up going straight to the medic tent. but, yeah, i had it.
8:36 am
>> kim, i need you. >> yeah. >> jennifer lawrence is one of hollywood's most in-demand actors, and to some, this explores fame. >> that wasn't the intention. the intention was the insatiable need of humanity. but i think that does go hand in hand with fame. fame shines a huge light on that part of people. we feel so entitled to everything. when i'm getting photographed, just walking to starbucks, i'm like, why does -- why do you feel entitled to this? >> what is the flip side of that, to be the subject of it? >> angry. no. >> honestly, because it feels strange and probably intrusive. >> it took many years for me to -- i was angry and resentful because i thought i deserved the right to do what i love and do my job and have privacy. after a few years, you're like, but that's not the way it is. it's not. it is important to keep a
8:37 am
separation and know the people who are screaming outside of a premiere, they're screaming because of a job and because of character. i don't go home and am like, did you hear how much they love me? i don't put stock in it. i'm grateful to them because without fans and people going to see my movie, i wouldn't be able to do what i love. >> you've done a movie -- at least one movie every year since 2010. do you think about taking a break? do you keep up the pace? >> i'm taking one. i don't have anything set for two years. >> what are you going to do? >> i don't know. >> hello, sweatpants. >> yeah. i don't know. start making pots. >> macrame? >> yeah. i'm taking a break. >> you'll be back. >> i'll see you in six months. >> jennifer is a charmer. "mother" is a doozy of a movie. i think it'll get a lot of people talking. >> what happens at the end of "mother"? >> i'm not telling you. i can't. yeah, i can't. it's incredible. i mean, i don't know. people are going to talk about

8:41 am
>> okay. rockets are powered by nozzles and flowing of different materials through them. you can have combustion, which is the fiery explosion you're probably used to. and you can have gold gas, where gas flows through the nozzle. i simply changed the shape of that nozzle to see if i could produce the most thrust, so the highest push for the lightest and smallest nozzle. >> did everybody get that? eleanor got the idea by watching videos of spacex rockets. but her passion for space travel started in 2011 when her parents took her to witness the end of an era. i got to watch the last space shuttle launch and that was kind of like, this is what i want to do. >> that was the moment? >> yeah, i want to go to space. i want to go to mars. >> eleanor is pretty grounded for someone with much lofty goals. she's one of five children in her family. they live in virginia. we invited her and her parents to speak with us at the hall of science in new york.
8:42 am
how did you get this extraordinary child? how did she get so interested in these incredible things? >> i guess we always let the kids do what they were interested in, what they follow heed? >> always have the opportunities, you know, around. they're sitting there. if you just give them the, you know, environment, they self-motivate. >> eleanor is certainly self-motivated. you made this dress? >> yes, i did. >> she makes clothing using a sewing machine or traditional loom. she's an accomplished violinist. she's learning russian. and she's a member of an award-winning robotics team. eleanor is a builder and a dreamer. when she grows up, she hopes to enter an orbit where currently, few women work. according to the bureau of labor statistics, only about 11% of aerospace engineers are women. why do you want to go to mars? >> because it hasn't been done
8:43 am
yet. it is our sibling planet. so the fact that we could maybe find something there, even if it is just bacteria, that's still life. >> she wants to go to mars. >> yes. >> she says she wants to go even if it is a one-way ticket. >> good for her. you have a different opinion, don't you? >> hopefully you don't have to think about that for a little while. >> right. >> with her sights set off world, eleanor still must face more earthly concerns like navigating her way through her first year of high school. despite her young age, it is pretty clear, eleanor has the right stuff. when you think of girl power, what does that mean to you? >> that really means that we can do anything. we can really dive into it and be the brains behind just about anything. >> what doesn't she do? >> did you get that about the nozzles and the trust? >> totally got it. >> incredible. >> she does everything. her family, all her brothers and sisters accomplished. >> wow. >> she's just one girl changing the world. >> great.
8:44 am
>> love the series. up next, ken burns on the new documentary that will change the way you think about the vietnam war. first, this is "today" on nbc news.
8:45 am
8:46 am
ken burns has spent decades taking history out of the books and putting it on to the screen. his award-winning documentaries covering everything from sports to music to wars that shaped our country and the world. his latest set to be released. a ten-part series a decade in the making on the vietnam war. ken, always good to have you here. >> thanks for having me. >> your work always shines. nice to see you. let's start with what you don't think people should do. you don't think they should binge all ten episodes of this. >> this is tough stuff, but it's necessary stuff. i'm not saying it is medicine. i just think we've spent way too long not dealing with the vietnam war and now the divisions we experience today, the hyperpartisanship born in
8:47 am
the vietnam war. if we can pack what happened and repack it, we may be able to have a civil conferencversation. >> is the begs wst way to tackl chronologically or do you look for an entry point? >> chronologically. let's find a place where all these diverse points of view -- my co-director and i went to vietnam, filmed north vietnamese soldiers and civilians, south vietnamese soldiers and civilians, along with all the americans here. >> there is a portion of this where you're interviewing >> there's a portion where you're interviewing americans who are pilots dropping bombs on a convoy along the trail and then you also interview two women who were involved with repairing that trail or driving those trucks and when we had that pilot, went on to become
8:48 am
the head of the air force, he didn't know that there were women down there that he was bombing, that he was strafing and so what happens is that if you can trianglate a war, you can understand it that much better. >> it's still raw. the subject of vietnam is what 50 years later basically. >> and everybody's not dealing with it so we went out to people across the political spectrum for support. we got an enlightened sponsor bank of america. this is going to be tough stuff but let's have something we can share with everyone. >> i was watching a show on tv on a very specific aspect of that war, the offense 1968. and watching it i realized even though i was alive during the vietnam war, i no less about it than i do for example about world war ii. >> that's exactly right and a lot of it is because it's unfinished business. it didn't end well for us.
8:49 am
world war ii is now the good war. how can that be? it's the worst war ever, but we have to deal with it because if we do deal with it we'll learn again how to speak to one another, how to evoke the better angels of our nature which is ha we want to do. >> you're just a little bit older than i am. >> i had a high draft number, so that was a big part of growing up. >> so do you attempt to answer the question, was it worth it, whose fault was it, where does the blame lie? >> we're asking all those questions and i think as we discover in particularly subjects about war there's pr than one truth. we want to lay it out from every perspective. if you think we should still be there fighting you can dpiebd room in the film. if you knew from the beginning this was the wrong thing and more importantly all the shades of gray in between, there's a place for you to watch and to make your own decision about it. >> i'm your biggest fan. i will be watching. ken burns, always good to have

8:57 am
now, it was the driver of the second big rig who was killed. the other two drivers suffered just minor injuries. this is certainly having an impact on traffic, coming from the trivalley into hayward. this backup goes on for miles stretching well into livermore. you can find more at our home panel lawyers for the man convicted of killing sierra lamar will be back in a san jose court. attorneys for the man asking for a new trial. not clear what they're basing that request on but we do know a judge overturned a murder verdict in another case after determining the lead detective gave false testimony. we'll be watching this. more news coming up on our midday newscast.
