other, she hasn't done anything about what's going on. all right? isis was -- also, the cia director out with another dire warning saying that isis is strong as ever. it's 5:30 here on the east coast, 2:30 out west. this is "way too early." ♪ ♪ hey, there, good morning, everyone. it's thursday, june 30th, i'm alex witt. police in turkey are carrying out raids this morning against suspected islamic group state cells following the deadly bombing attack at the ataturk airport. the country's state-run news agency say authorities conducted the raids in three neighborhoods in istanbul and the coast city of ismer. 13 people have been taken into
custody and the death toll now stands at 42 after a 22-year-old woman died as a result of injuries suffered in the attack. crews at the airport continue to repair the damage from tuesday's violence. turkey's prime minister is praising the new security measures from preventing any further loss of life. they forced them to split up and set off their explosives earlier than they had plan md ch they have not identified the attackers whether they were from turkey. police conducted two searches at two addresses related to the attackers. hundreds of protesters gathered for an anti-government demonstration in istanbul yesterday holding signs that read, we are sad, we are angry, we are in mourning, we are in revolt. protesters accused the ruling party of being an ally of isis, which the prime minister says appears to be behind the attack. joining us now from istanbul
ataturk airport, nbc news correspondent, claudia lavanga. >> they couldn't confirm that the scene 13 people across 30 were arrested in 16 different raids including three different neighborhoods here in istanbul and the southern coastal town of ismer. the authorities come out today to confirm that, that especially that the raids were targeting an alleged isis cell, it will just re-enforce their theory that they had put out all along since in the immediate aftermath of the attack that isis was behind the attack, alex. >> and claude owe, as i look at the scene behind you at the airport, it seems like business as usual. what's it like? >> reporter: well, it's more than business as usual, alex. it was business as usual yesterday, 24 hours after the
attack. today, you can barely notice anything happened because workers are very swift in clearing out all the debris from that attack, in particular, of course, they replaced the glass walls that until last night were ritled with bullet holes, with cracks. they also cleared out the ceiling panels that collapsed as a consequence of some of those explosions, but even though it's as business as usual while people of course here can't forget what happened two days ago that in three hours from now there will be a memorial held in memory of the 42 victims. but those who won't forget are the survivors who told nbc news some harrowing stories, alex. >> so, got my bag, just walking out of the plane. didn't hear anything. came around the corner, heard screams and then just this wall
of humanity just rushing towards me, you know, families, babies screaming, old chap in a wheelchair trying to get himself along and then sbut the taxi rank where you normally hail a cab and it just masses -- destruction. seven ambulances, blood on the floor, bloody rags, people were stepping through them and again people arguing with the police, i assume saying someone i love is in there. my friend is in there and the police again just pushing people on. one of them grabbed my camera and said no photos, just keep going. then pushed us all out into the car park and off into the night to fend for ourselves as it were. >> alex, of course we will attend that memorial that will take place right behind me, international arrivals terminal from three hours from now. we'll give you more on that later. back to you. >> we move forward to that. thank you so much. speaking at the council on foreign relations yesterday, the
head of the cia gave a dire warning that the next target of isis could be right here at home. >> it would be surprising to me that isil is not trying to hit us both in the region as well as in our homeland. if anybody here believes that the u.s. homeland is sealed and that daesh or isil would not consider that, i think i would guard against that. >> earlier this month, he told congress that the on going battle against isis is not sure of its global reach and will plot more violence against the west. here in the u.s., airports are stepping up security in the wake of the istanbul attack as travellers prepare for the busy fourth of july weekend. miami international airport, heavily armed officers and canine patrol units were part of an increased presence. the tsa says it's a similar scene in new york city, atlanta and los angeles. tsa officials tell nbc news, the agency doesn't have enough
people or bomb-sniffing dogs to cover every potential targeted airports. the dropoff and pickup areas just like those hit in istanbul are among the many soft targets that are nearly impossible to attack from an attack. >> following the istanbul terror attack, donald trump is blaming hillary clinton for the rise of the islamic state. >> isis was formed during her tenure. isis is now worse than ever. you see what happened yesterday. you see what's going on generally. isis is looking strong. isis is signing up people over the internet. they know how to use the internet better than we do and we do nothing about anything. they're taking our youth. you know why they're taking our youth, because they look like they're winning. >> she is not going to get tougher. i started under her. it was a little group of people. it could have been wiped out quickly and effectively then. now it's a very large group of people and it's only getting bigger. if she gets in, it will be
massive. we won't have a country. we'll be afraid to walk outside. bill, remember one more thing, they're letting tens of thousands of people come in from syria and nobody knows who these people are. >> we went through that already. >> lot of those people are isis. >> trump is facing new backlash from inside his own party. trump renewed calls for the return of water boarding this week. here are trump's commented followed by senator mccain's response. >> they said, what do you think about water boarding, i said i like it a lot and i don't think it's tough enough. can you imagine them sitting around the table or wherever they're eating their dinner talking about the americans don't do water boarding and yet we chop off heads. they probably think we're weak, we're stupid, we don't know what we're doing, we have no leadership. you know, you have to fight fire with fire.
>> according to the geneva conventions, it's a war crime. but perhaps more importantly than that if you're not into academics and history is it doesn't work. if you inflict enough pain on someone, that person will tell you whatever they think that you want to hear in order to make the pain stop. it's not the united states of america. it's not what we are all about. it's not what we are. it's not about them. it's about us. >> donald trump is scheduled to make his second stop of the month in new hampshire today with another speech focussed on u.s. trade policy as he proposes higher barriers to protect american workers. but talk of more restrictive policies has some republican allies on edge, including the u.s. chamber of commerce, which was sharply critical of trump's pennsylvania speech. trump responded yesterday tweeting, the chamber must fight harder for the american worker. china and many others are taking advantage of the u.s. with our
terrible trade packs. and why would the chamber be upset that i want to negotiate better or stronger trade deals or i want penalties for cheaters. he said more at a rally in maine. >> i'm all for free trade. here is what -- because the u.s. chamber of commerce is totally controlled by the special interest groups. just so you understand it. and there are special interests that want to have the deals that they want to have. they want to have tpp, transpacific partnerships. it will be the worst deal since nafta. it will drain the rest of your businesses out of maine. believe me. i want to make great deals for our public. i want to make great deals for the united states. yes, but do you want free trade, fair trade? i said i want great deals. i don't care if they're free. i don't care if they're fair. i don't care if they're good. i don't care if they're horrendous. i just want great deals. i'll do it all different ways. i'll do it all different ways.
>> and trump wasn't through. late last night on twitter he added for reasons only they can explain the u.s. chamber wants to continue our bad trade deals rather than renegotiating and making them better. a new poll in the presidential race illustrates the growing worry in the gop about donald trump's struggle to find his footing. the fox news poll shows hillary clinton with a six-point lead over trump. the democrat up two points since may at 44% while trump has some 7 points to 38. the republican party is less united than it was a month ago. just 74% of republicans backing trump over clinton, down from 82% in may. and when asked who they prefer as the republican nominee, 48% of republicans say donald trump, 51% say someone else. meanwhile, ohio governor, john kasich still won't say whether he'll attend the rnc in his home state. it would not be accurate at this point to say the governor won't be at the official convention, that simply hasn't been decided
yet. >> when you sign a pledge, this isn't a pledge that says subject to my changing my mind, this is a pledge, i think it's like legally binding you want to know the truth. i have guys out there -- and they really sore losers if you think about it. i would have honored that pledge. let's yell it from the loudest building, but you know what i would have honored the pledge. just remember this, they signed a pledge saying they will abide. saying they will back the candidate of the party and now they sit back and the pledge is out there and the press doesn't go after them on that. they broke their word, in my opinion, they should never be allowed to run for public office again because what they did is disgraceful. president obama left canada last night after his tri-lateral meeting with prime minister justin trudeau and mexican pan yan nato. he discussed hillary clinton and
discussing gender equality. >> here in canada a woman has raise on the the highest office in the land. for the first time in america perhaps president. i have a bias on these issues, but our work won't be finished until all women in our country are truly -- next tuesday, the president will be hitting the campaign trail with clinton in the battleground state of north carolina. president obama won north carolina in '08, but lost the state to mitt romney in 2012. this is a conservative watchdog says that dozens of e-mails that went through hillary clinton's private server were not included in the disclosures turned over to the state department last night. public records, lawsuits including many brought by the group judicial watch are said to have raised at least 160 e-mails. one e-mail led to the revelation that clinton asked her personal aid how her records are being maintained and then in a
deposition released yesterday, abdean said clinton did not want the state department e-mails she sent and to be accessible to anybody. there are concerns about what could have been discussed during a private meeting between former president bill clinton and loretta lynch tuesday. the face to face came as the justice department investigates hillary clinton's use. the meeting was unplanned and that she and bill clinton never discussed the e-mail investigation. we're told they were at the phoenix airport at the very same time when the former president boarded her plane to say hello. let's turn to business where a bill to rescue puerto rico is headed to the president's desk. let's talk about this. a big rescue under way. tell us about it. >> yeah. we're not the only ones bailing out countries in this part of the world. the senate passed that bill with flying colors and is now expected that president obama will be signing it off by
friday, which the deadline that they'll be defaulting on this $2 billion worth of debt payments. now, important to note, though, the government in puerto rico, they are saying they can't honor all of the debts and that they are seeing rather -- defaulting on large portions of that debt. now it goes back to who will be taking some of the hits on that front. when looking at the general markets here in europe, we've opened on a flat note this morning. this following on from the second day of strength yesterday. the session managing to wipe out all of the post brexit losses. we were higher than 3.6 on the close, highest level since april. that's important and interesting given all the volatility that we've seen after the vote to leave the eu and all the volatility you can expect giving the wrangling that will take place back and forth to try to cement some of the new rules in place and what it has to mean to the british people. in the u.s., you saw the dow,
s&p and nasdaq closing higher. stocks in the u.s. having best two-day gain since mid february. alex, back to you. >> thank you so much from london. still ahead, the world's most decorated olympian makes more olympic history and the games haven't started. remember this awkward handshake with president obama and cuba's raul castro, that was earlier this year. new edition of world leaders joining hands, this one from canada. those stories and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back. ok team,

final olympics. maybe this time it's true. in nfl headlines, quarterback andrew luck now boasts the biggest contract in league history after signing a six-year extension with the colts worth $140 million, 87 of which is guaranteed. in the nba, the knicks continue to make waives in free agency talk. "the washington post" reports center noah will almost certainly be joining the knicks after free agency begins on july 1. noah is expected to fetch a salary of $18 million a year and be reunited the derrick rose in new york after they traded the twaechb mvp to the knicks last week. let's turn to major league baseball in new york. the yankees entered the bottom of the ninth inning trailing the rangers by four runs. the first three batters reached cutting the deficit by a run and then brian mccann launches this game-tying three-run shot in left field and that home run ball actually hits a fan right in the face. if you think that stung, check out what happens two batters
later. watch. >> high, fly ball right field, see ya, ball game. >> well, the rangers feel the pain as new york gets a two-run homer to walk the yankees off with 9-7 victory. freddie freeman takes out his frustration on his bat, slamming it against the clay there and snapping it into pieces. as for the game, the indians blank the braves 3-0, for cleveland's 12th-straight victory. cleveland on a roll. here is some heads-up play on a rehab assignment with minnesota's aaa team. >> and the pitch, swing and a high fly ball on the inside. popup behind the mound. everybody converges and it's sano who takes charge and the ball hits him on the head and there's a diving catch behind the mound. >> so you know what happened
there. he was making that play on this routine pop fly but he apparently lost track of the ball in the sun, bouncing right off his head. team work as we get to our team weather meteorologist. >> i like that, alex. weather is kind of quiet. not too early to look at what's going to happen the holiday weekend. thunderstorms in western oklahoma, north texas. we have any weather headlines that will make news, it might be flash flooding in areas in kansas city. this area could pick up two to three inches of rain with thunderstorms. i don't think it will be too bad. for today, afternoon thunderstorms. watch out in the carolinas especially through the late afternoon down along the gulf coast just like yesterday. how about the fourth of july weekend forecast. the get away day on friday. as far as the airports go, we could have thunderstorms late in the afternoon. d.c., richmond, philadelphia, new york through the middle of
the country where we'll be watching, still afternoon storms. that's the denver to kansas city to possibly st. louis. it's starting to get hot on saturday. dallas could be 101 by the time we get to sunday. it's the same areas. the boundary between the cooler, nicer air and the hot, humid air in the south. it's a monday on fourth of july, lot of picnic plans will be fine. mother nature will have her owns back through the ohio valley and carolinas. it doesn't look like it will rain out anyone's beach plans or anyone's fireworks. i think we're looking pretty good, alex. it's very warm still in the west and just very summer like out there. we don't have to worry about severe weather or tornadoes or anything like that. >> good job. >> not bad. >> thank you. still ahead, one of the nation's most popular pageants dropped swim suits for sports ware. that's next. my experience with usaa is awesome. homeowners insurance life insurance automobile insurance i spent 20 years active duty

so we mentioned president obama's visit to canada yesterday. he was there for the north american summit with the leaders from canada and mexico when this happened. the three going in for some sort of a three-way handshake and things got kind of awkward. there you can see them getting tangled up with canada's justin trudeau right there in the middle. one of the most prestigious beauty pageants announced that the miss teen usa pageant will no longer have a swim suit portion. instead, contestants will be
judged in athletic ware competition. earlier this month, the miss usa pageant featured its first hearing impaired contestant and this year's winner was the district of columbia's who is an officer in the army reserve. the 2016 miss teen usa pageant will be in las vegas on july 30th. it was just a few months ago when the academy motion pictures arts and sciences faced major backlash after it failed to nominate any minority actors for the oscar for the second year in a row. the academy made good on its promises to make changes with the aim of increasing the diversity of its membership. they have invited the largest and most diverse class yet, 683 members, 46% female, 41% are minority. >> the hollywood walk of fame announced the star resip yentds including the late singer
selena, 21 years after her death in 1995, among ores are chris pratt, john legend. that does it for me and "way too early". coming up, donald trump is going after former opponents who aren't getting behind him. what it will take for unity as we get closer to the convention "morning joe" just moments away. and sometimes, i just don't eat the way i should. so i drink boost® to get the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of protein to help maintain muscle. all with a great taste. i don't plan on slowing down any time soon. stay strong. stay active with boost®.
