bull market somewhere. i promise to try to find it just for you right here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer and i will see you tomorrow. breaking news overnight, donald trump heads south of the border to meet mexico's president, just hours before he gives one of the most important speeches of his presidential run. isis confirms one of its top leaders has been killed in new this morning,inger chris brown arrested after a nearly 14-hour standoff with plus. plus -- >> we're going to have storm surge, we're going to have inland flooding, we're going to have coastal flooding. >> parts of the southeast under hurricane and tropical storm watches while hawaii gears up for a possible one-two punch ahead of a labor day weekend. "early today" starts right now.
4:01 am
the billionaire nominee tweeting overnight, ?i have accepted the invitation of president enrique pena nieto of mexico and very much look forward to meeting him tomorrow." the mexican president confirmed the visit, tweeting "i believe in dialogue to promote mexican interests around the world." that face-to-face meeting comes as the republican presidential nominee is set to give one of his most anticipated speeches of his presidential run. immigration policies after weeks of posturing. the clinton campaign responded to trump's scheduled visit with a statement that read, in part, ?what ultimately matters is what donald trump says to voters in arizona, not mexico, and whether he remains committed to the splitting up of families and the deportation of millions." for more, we're joined by nbc's tracie potts. and tracie, what else can you tell us about trump's planned visit and upcoming speech? >> reporter: well, i can tell you he was invited.
4:02 am
she's met with pina neto before. but they will be giving the immigration speech first in arizona. it will be interesting to see if any of his positions change afterwards. meantime, pena nieto and donald trump have been at odds over the wall that says they will not do that. he's referred to the policy as isolationis and being like hitler or mussolini. he later retracted that. trump is expected to talk more about policy, specifically tonight in a speech we're told he's still working on and he will probably deliver, as we've seen of late, via teleprompter. dara? >> an interesting day ahead, tracie potts, thank you very much for that. trump's international visit
4:03 am
the fbi recovered up to 30 e-mails off clinton's server that may be related to the 2012 benghazi attacks. the trump campaign made sure to hammer clinton for it, saying "the discovery makes you wonder what's contained in the other e-mails she attempted to have wiped from her server." trump followed that up with this. >> the only way to learn the full depth of her public corruption is to read the 33,000 e-mails that she deleted. she bleached, which somebody said they never heard of in a very expensive fashion. used chemical so that nobody will ever be able to see them. who does this? who does this? >> the 30 newly discovered e-mails were part of a larger cache of 15,000 e-mails. the fbi recovered them as they probed the use of her e-mail server for official business. the state department says it would need until the end of
4:04 am
potentially classified information from the e-mails before they're released. and as trump campaigned through washington bashing clinton for the controversy, clinton stayed off the trail, continuing her fund-raising push through long island and at one point dancing the night away with paul mccartney. she's raised an estimated $20 million during her three-day fund-raising swing through the hamptons. but today on the trail, clinton heads to the important state of ohio. running mate tim kaine toured through beg in florida and trump makes his much-anticipated immigration speech in arizona following his visit to mexico. now to syria, where isis says one of the world's most-wanted terrorists, the second in command, has been killed. abu mohammad al adnani, the man in charge of propaganda for the terror group, had a $5 million bounty on his head. and while the pentagon says it has not confirmed al adnani's death, "the new york times" reports that a u.s. military drone hit a vehicle al adnani
4:05 am
live from london with more. matt, what does this loss mean for isis? >> reporter: thanks, dara. if it's confirmed by the u.s.-led coalition, this would indeed be a big win in the fight against isis. he's been called the voice of isis. he was the maestro behind isis' sophisticated and horrific propaganda, but abu mohammad al adnani was more than just a spokesman for the group. researchers and intelligence officials believe he was the leading figure behind isis' operations targeting the west, and he was also t he may have been something like a top deputy to abu bakr al baghdadi, the group's leader. he may also have been groomed as baghdadi's successor. in his many lengthy speeches, adnani appeared almost obsessed with encouraging individual attacks against westerners, wherever they could be found and in any way possible, these so-called lone wolf attacks. so to answer your original question, yes, adnani's death is
4:06 am
that's yet to be seen. isis is a large but nimble organization. it has leaders prepped and waiting in the wings, ready to take up leadership in the event of just these sorts of strikes. it really acts more like a conventional army than a traditional terrorist group in the mold of its main rival, al qaeda. and those who study islamic state say the only real way to defeat isis is to beat them back on the ground, to roll back their so-called caliphate in iraq and syria. dara? >> matt bradley, appreciate that update. singer chris brown is out on $250,000 bail following an arrest last night. he's charged with assault with a deadly weapon after a nearly 14-hour standoff with police. bailey quorn says he pointed a gun at her because she was admiring a man's diamond necklace. she says she made a run for it after the incident. and after spending hours outside
4:07 am
eventually scoured his l.a. home before his arrest. but brown denied any wrongdoing on social media, posting a profanity-laced rant against police. >> when i call the police for stalker, people that are endangering my life, they don't come till the next day. let somebody make a [ bleep ] allegation about me and the whole [ bleep ] team. >> the trouble-plagued artist has had numerous run yuns with the law. the most high profile was 2009 when brown pleaded guilty to a felony assault charge against then girlfriend, singer rihanna. well, as we close in on the most popular east coast vacation destinations are preparing for a potential one-two punch of severe weather. even hawaii isn't safe from the end of the season pounding, but even without the rain, officials are warning many beach-goers to stay out of the water. nbc's gabe gutierrez has the incredible images and the warnings that people should heed.
4:08 am
international space station is stunning. massive hurricanes swirling across the globe. hurricane madeline in the pacific threatening hawaii, followed by hurricane lester churning in the atlantic, hurricane gaston, not expecting to affect the u.s., but now the carolina and florida coasts are bracing for separate tropical systems. >> this storm is an uncertainty, but we are preparing for it. >> reporter: in florida, tropical depression number nine is forecast to turn towards the gulf coast, bringing heavy rain and even isolated tornadoes over the next few days. we don't want anybody to be injured. we don't want any loss of life. >> reporter: another system, tropical depression number eight, is grazing north carolina's outer banks. the concern here, rip currents, fast-moving water that moves away from shore. swimmers are pulled out to sea and panicked trying to swim against the current back to the beach. >> that was gabe gutierrez reporting. bill karins is tracking these tropical systems. hey, bill, good morning.
4:09 am
clear, but now we're watching fch. will and all of the southeast coast from tropical depression 9, soon to be her main, and madeline also. up towards tallahassee, this could be a low-end hurricane, but more likely a tropical storm along the east coast, thursday night, friday into saturday and then hopefully out to sea and not clipping new england. that will be a close call. then we have immensely huge and powerful lester and then much closer madeline, which thankfully looks more disorganized, but heading in the general direction of the big and that forecast path takes it to the southern half of the island with a good rain shield to theior sections a and very warm throughout the interior west. and i also want to show you this.

welcome back. facebook has been experiencing some trending topics gaffes after replacing some employees with computer algorithms. they made the switch after allegations of political bias back in may. despite finding no evidence of systemic political bias in the selection or prominence of stories, the social media site still enacted reforms.
4:22 am
to change things. >> they fired the editors -- >> they fired people that still didn't do anything wrong. >> they replaced them with computers. here's the big problem, the algorithms lack the human element that once sorted out hoaxes, satire and inappropriate headlines, so the offending stories stayed up for hours before being noticed and removed. facebook now says it's working harder on detection so they can keep them out of your trending lineup. >> i think we should have a couple more humans instead of the algorithms, right? >> exactly. well, they >> nothing like nod admitting fault and firing people, too. >> took time, but hey, we'll see how it works. well, clearly, we have the presidential debates coming up, which are going to be huge. >> huge! >> it's going to be huge. all right late-night comedians are having fun with it. here's jimmy fallon last night. >> we're less than a month away from the first presidential debate. i guess donald trump's campaign manager says unlike most candidates, trump may not practice beforehand with mock
