2:02 am
deal to curb carbon emissions and help prevent the worst effects of climate change. as you mentioned the president joined more than 150 heads of state here. and yesterday he met with french president francois hollande as well as leaders of india and china, two of the world's biggest producers. right now there are major disagreements between rich countries and poor countries over who should pay for going green. now, there have been similar climate deals twice before. back in 1997 in kyoto, and 2009, copenhagen. but both were widely viewed as failures. and the president hopes this time will be different. >> i've come here personally as the leader of the world's largest economy and second largest emitter to say that the united states of america not only recognizes our roll in creating this problem we embrace our responsibility to do something about it. >> reporter: president obama also called a global talks an

act of defiance against terrorism. meanwhile, high profile entrepreneurs like bill gates, mark zuckerberg and richard branson announced plans to use private dollars to fund some of these clean energy projects. now, after meeting with vladimir putin yesterday, president obama met with the turkish president today, and he is set to meet with leaders of small island nations before heading back to washington later today. shiba, back to you. >> gabe, thank you. with about two months left until the iowa caucuses the candidates are making their cases for high-powered endorsements. that was the idea for donald trump yesterday in a closed-door meeting with african-american religious leaders. but what he got wasn't the group's consensus. the gop front-runner may have been looking for. nbc's katy tur reports. >> reporter: donald trump in spin mode holding a private meeting with 100 black pastors and religious leaders. >> it went longer only because of the love. it didn't go long are for other
2:04 am
reasons. there were unbelievable solutions, i think, to problems. >> reporter: the meeting was supposed to result in an indorsement and instead trump's campaign abruptly canceled the press conference when a number of those leaders complained that they had no intention of endorsing after they themselves faced widespread backlash from their own communities and an open letter in ebony magazine calling trump's words incendiary. >> we made history today because we had meaningful dialogue with mr. donald trump and we voiced concerns that were sensitive to the african-american community. >> reporter: sources inside the meeting tell nbc news the atmosphere was tense as some loudly expressed concerns about a tweet trump sent out with bogus crime stats. claiming most white people are killed by blacks, as well as his handling of a black lives matter protesters who was kicked and punched during a rally in alabama. >> maybe he should have been roughed up. because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing. >> i don't have to support every single thing he says. it's been said, we discussed it,
2:05 am
we addressed it, we put it to bed. >> the big issue was the jobs issue. >> reporter: despite the emphatic assurances of a few, most of the leaders left trump tower without endorsing the candidate. >> are you going to change your tone going forward? >> the tone has taken me to first position in every single poll, including state and including national polls. the beautiful thing about the meeting is they really didn't ask me to change the tone. i think they want to see victory. >> reporter: leaving many to wonder what endorsement, if any, will matter. katy tur, nbc news, new york. the man accused of killing three people at a colorado planned parenthood clinic made his first court appearance monday where he was told he could face the death penalty. but the proceeding shed little light on what sparked the deadly rampage. nbc's miguel almaguer was in the courtroom in colorado springs. >> reporter: robert dear appearing before a judge on closed circuit television said little. >> do you have any questions about any of these rights, sir?
2:06 am
>> no questions. >> reporter: the 57-year-old to be charged with murder. police say friday he killed three and wounded nine at a planned parenthood clinic. while authorities have not determined a motive, the president of planned parenthood claims the violence was planned. >> it's very disturbing that anyone would ever target a planned parenthood or any other women's health center based on their own opposition to abortion. >> reporter: dear lived a reclusive life in a north carolina shack with no plumbing or power, before moving to this trailer in colorado. neighbors said he rarely made conversation or even eye contact. >> just looked like a mountain man. like he's living off the grid. >> reporter: the bloody standoff lasted five hours. 45 people were trapped inside the clinic, include iing kantan. >> sounded like an ak, you could hear gunshots. from there the bullets went through the wall.
2:07 am
you could see it, you could smell it. >> reporter: pregnant, she came to planned parenthood accompanied by her boyfriend ke'arre stewart the father of two, an iraq war veteran was shot in the parking lot. he somehow managed to rush into the clinic, toward the gunfire, to warn others and he was shot again. >> he was the only brother that i had. and he took that away from me. >> reporter: jennifer markovsky, a mother of two, was at the clinic to support a friend. police officer garrett swasey also ran towards the shooter. the father of two loved his family, career and god. >> robert dear is being held without bond and will be formally charged within the next ten days. the officer accused of a shooting death of a chicago teen was released from prison last night after posting bail. officer jason van dyke, seen wearing a hoodie sweatshirt pulled down over his face, was met by a swarm of reporters and protesters after leaving prison. the police union president says
2:08 am

"today" show next week. and senator ted cruz had an outspoken monday on the same day he made the assertion that, quote, the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are democrats, he also discussed the war on women at an iowa town hall, saying democrats are trying to frame the argument as a gop assault on contraceptives. >> jiminy cricket this is a made-up, nonsense example. last i checked, we don't have a rubber shortage in america. but, look when i was in college we had a machine in the bathroom, you put 50 cents in, and voila. >> some news from congress for you, according to the house archives, speaker paul ryan is now the first bearded speaker since 1925. and in non-facial hair related paul ryan news yesterday he officially invited the president to deliver his final state of the union address on january 12th.
