trump rally at 7:00 a.m. whether they like that or not. republicans like that or not. "first look" is up next. new this morning, donald trump's team is working to clear up questions over the candidate's immigration policy, ahead of his major speech tomorrow. plus the latest on former congressman anthony weiner's most recent sexting scandal and what's next for his wife. and an outspoken pastor supporting donald trump apologizes after posting a tweet featuring hillary clinton in black face. good morning to you. it's tuesday, august 30th.
2:01 am
i'm betty win alongside luis burgdorf. the trump campaign says any confusion will be cleared up during a highly anticipated speech at the phoenix convention center tomorrow. yesterday his running mate told a local news station in georgia that trump will lay out in quote great specificity exactly what his plan entails. now senior aides tell nbc news that trump plans to contrast his immigration plan with that of hillary clinton's. yesterday trump's campaign manager got a jump stt. >> her plan on immigration is incredibly coherent. it's scary as heck, because she has total open borders, catch and release, sanctuary cities continue, amnesty. i mean it's really a very radical plan. she's been critical of president obama. she thinks that he is actually not done enough. >> i can say that there are many tenets to his plan. i think they're incredibly important for everyone to remember. build a wall, which has been the signature of his campaign since practically day one. that's there. no amnesty. no legalization --
2:02 am
>> no amnesty? >> no amnesty. >> why candidate anybody in the campaign answer the question whether he is still in favor of the deportation -- >> i've answered that many times. he hasn't talked about that in a very long time. >> is he in favor of it or against it? >> he hasn't talked about that in a very long time. >> you understand you're not answering the question. >> you have to wait till wednesday. >> now some of the plan trump supports includes a nationwide e-verify system, visa tracking, adding more immigration judges and cracking down on so-called sanctuary cities. there's also the wall which his adviser rudy giuliani discussed further yesterday. >> he's going to build a wall. it's going to be a technological as well as a physical wall, meaning -- >> we hear 35 feet high with wall technology -- >> and with technology that can detect people five, six miles away, with technology that can detect people that can dig under the wall. >> so it's not just a wall. but also some sort of proposed tunnel technology we expect to learn more tomorrow
2:03 am
>> and donald trump began his week by tweeting about the poor quality of life for america's minorities. quote, look how bad it is getting. how much more crime. how many more shootings will it take for african-americans and latinos to vote trump equals safe. and, quote, inner city crime is reaching record levels. african-americans will vote for trump because they know i will stop the slaughter going on. but "the wall street journal" reports that while crime has ticked up from last year, statistics show violent crime is well below the record highs of the early 1990s. the nation's homicide record-setting year was 1991, with over 24,700 homicides. according to the fbi in 2014 there were less than half under 12,000. but with 78 homicides in chicago over the last few weeks august is turning out to be the deadliest month in that city has seen in nearly 20 years yet there wrt 2922 homicides in chicago in 1919 compared to 612
2:04 am
in 2001, and 487 so far this year. well, a top surrogate for donald trump is in hot water for racial insensitivity in attacking hillary clinton in an image some viewers might find offensive. pastor mark burns a frequent speaker at trump rallies who yesterday announced the first event with black voters went after clinton accusing her of using african-americans for political gain. sending out a cartoon of clinton in black face burns added black americans thank you for your votes and letting me use you again. in an interview with kristen welker on mtp daily yesterday barnes defended his tweet. >> really, the tweet is -- is a frustration that i have as a black man in america, and how i see african-americans in many cases. not every case, but in many cases are suffering throughout this country.
2:05 am
and to see how en masse we have been voting for the democratic party en masse, and yet we have very little to show for it. i think it's a vexation to me to see how the democrat party and especially hillary clinton, what i call tap dance. >> he apologized. >> i'm going to apologize for the offensive picture that many thought was offensive. but i'm not apologizing for the message that it was carrying in reference to i still believe hillary clinton, and the democratic party do pander at the black people. i do believe that we have been worst off eight years under democrat rule. >> staying on the topic of twitter, donald trump took to his favorite medium yesterday to
2:06 am
launch a series of new attacks against hillary clinton questioning her intelligence. trump tweeted crooked hillary's brain power is highly overrated. probably why her decision-make something so bad or, as stated by bernie yes she has bad judgment. trump also tweeted does anyone know that crooked hillary who tried to hard was unable to pass the bar exam in washington, d.c. and she was forced to go elsewhere now clinton revealed she failed the d.c. bar exam in 1973 in her 2003 autobiography living history. and wrote that when she learned she passed arkansas and failed in d.c., that she thought, quote, my test scores might be telling me something. meanwhile as the two candidates prepare for their first debate in just under a month clinton is reportedly turning to a former trump insider to build her battle plan against him. according to "the new york times" clinton's advisers are talking to the ghost writer of trump's book "the art of the deal" trying to get insights about the republican nominee's
2:07 am
deepest insecurities, the "times" says her team is also working with psychology experts to help create a personality profile of trump, and, quote, were critical to understanding how to get under mr. trump's skin. now clinton's team is also reportedly looking at who they can cast as mr. trump in a series of mock debates according to the "times." some clinton allies have suggested jon stewart or even alec baldwin. >> those are interesting picks there. all right. thank you, louis. well a new monmouth university poll shows a tightening race for the white house but still a strong national lead for hillary clinton. in a head-to-head match-up clinton is down five points from earlier this month to 49%. she remains seven points ahead of donald trump at 42%. clinton also has a seven-point advantage over trump in a four-way race, 46% to 39%. gary johnson at 7% and jill stein at 2%. clinton's favorable rating is back down to 34%. while trump's is steady at just 26%. and the monmouth poll puts those low numbers into context of the last two decades by looking at the percentage of voters who had favorable opinions toward neither candidate since 1996.
2:08 am
it had never been higher than 7%. this year, 35% of voters lack a favorable opinion for the majority party nominee. that is a five-fold increase from the 20-year high. >> but there's turmoil of a personal kind inside the clinton ranks yesterday huma abedin one of hillary clinton's closest aids announced that she was step rate from her husband anthony weiner after his last front page scandal. nbc's andrea mitchell reports. >> reporter: huma abedin in the hamptons as hillary clinton raised millions sunday. clinton's longest serving aide, closest adviser, rising from white house intern 20 years ago to vice chair of this campaign. now, after a third sexting scandal by her husband, anthony weiner, abedin acknowledging, after long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, i have made the decision to separate from my husband. anthony and i remain devoted to doing what is best for our son who is the light of our life.
2:09 am
but "the new york post" claims weiner was sending an inappropriate picture of himself to a woman while their young son was in his bed. weiner told "the post" he and the woman have been friends for some time. and says their communications were always appropriate. clinton has said if she had another daughter it would be huma. >> i mean huma is like family not just to hillary clinton but to that whole campaign. she's like the glue. >> reporter: theirs was an interfaith marriage. she a traditional muslim, he a jewish congressman from brooklyn with bill clinton officiating. then the is exing scandal that drove him >> we decided to move forward with our lives, and that is a problem and that's behind us, as
2:10 am
we said other things would come out. >> reporter: still, she stood by him. >> what i want to say is, i love him. i have forgiven him. >> reporter: but he told savannah he was recovered. >> you are no longer engaging in that kind of behavior. >> yes i did tell you that. >> is that correct? >> yes, it is correct. >> reporter: as recently as may the couple appearing on the red carpet at the met gala. last month he was at the dnc. >> instagram. >> reporter: friends now claim they were already living separate lives. >> abedin was not at fund-raisers yesterday with the clinton -- with hillary clinton in new york while hillary were -- has declined to comment donald trump wasted no time saying huma is making a very wise decision. i know anthony weiner well and she will be far better off without him. adding it's just another example of hillary clinton's bad judgment. it is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this. let's look down ballot now to some of the high profile primaries happening today. starting with arizona. it's longtime senator john
2:11 am
mccain against kelly ward who in recent weeks questioned his ability to serve over his age. he turned 80 years old yesterday. a poll shows mccain with a substantial 26-point lead over ward. if he clears today's hurdle he turns to the general election against democratic congressman patrick. as "the washington post" points out her strategy has been to tie mccain to donald trump in an effort to drive up turnout among hispanics. yesterday after receiving the endorsement of the arizona firefighters union the senator was asked if an endorsement from trump would hurt or help him? >> i don't think it has much effect either way, because, as i say, i've been representing the people of arizona for many, many years. and they judge me on me and my record, rather than any other factor. >> the latest poll on a mccain kirkpatrick match-up puts the senator at the crucial 50% mark ahead of the democratic congresswoman by twelve points.
2:12 am
and florida primary voters are also heading to the polls today. former dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz is fighting to keep her congressional seat against tim canova. sanders has loomed large in the race but never made it to florida. he told nbc news bernie is not on the ballot and i think coming here might have presented certain liabilities anyway so it might be a blessing that he never came. meanwhile florida's u.s. not race is shaping up to be a fight between republican incumbent marco rubio and democratic congressman patrick murphy this november. now recent polls have shown murphy an establishment favorite with a sizable lead lead over fellow fellow democratic congressman allen grayson and victory seems all but sure for senator marco rubio today against his challenger. still ahead new reporting that russian hackers are behind two recent attempts to breach voter registration systems but the latest on colin kaepernick national anthem protest. now the 49ers quarterback is

let's get a check on your weather now with bill karins. you've been looking at the tropics and unfortunately you're not looking at a vacation place you're looking at a storm. >> we're talking about hawaii, we're talking about florida, we're talking about outer banks of north carolina. a lot of vacation destinations. tropical storm warnings in effect for cape hatteras back to atlantic beach and moorhead city area. we're starting to watch some of the spiral bands from tropical depression 8. you can see some of the thunderstorms spinning around the center of it affecting cape hatteras. it's going to be extreme eastern sections of north carolina feel the effects of that. the latest update forecast from the hurricane center. we get these every six hours. we just had the 5:00 a.m.
2:17 am
update. we'll get the next one at 11:00 a.m. they think it's about as close as it's going to get to the outer banks. kind of northward and then tomorrow it's going to race out to sea. very minimal impacts cape hatteras, squally weather, wind gusts, decent size waves. rip currents will be the biggest threat in the water. tropical depression number 9. this has not strengthened, but still is over the open, warm waters of the gulf and it is going to take the path that's going to go to the north and then head towards florida in the days ahead. so here's the forecast past. and you notice i do have it strengthening a little bit, too. they bring it up to 65 miles per hour as it's making landfall. that would be a pretty decent size tropical storm. because of the geography in this region that will push a lot of water here into what they call the big bend of florida. from tampa northward, that's where the concern will be from the storm surge thursday. and then it will just be squally weather with rain and wind right through southern georgia, possibly even clipping south carolina, too. so savannah and charleston need to watch that. and then finally we're watching two hurricanes in the pacific,
2:18 am
and this one, madeline, will eventually head for the big island of hawaii. there's a lot going on out there in the tropics. >> you are ausy man todau. well, russian based hackers are being accused of attempting to break into voter base databases in two states raising concerns about moscow's influence in the november election. u.s. intelligence officials tell nbc news that the hackers targeted the systems in arizona and illinois, where data from as many as 200,000 voter records may have been accessed. illinois officials announced last month they had shut down the registration system after the hack. the incidents led the fbi to send out an alert earlier this month to election officials nationwide asking them to look out for similar breaches. one official tells nbc news that the attacks have been attributed to russian intelligence agencies, adding it's the closest the u.s. has come to tying a breach to the kremlin. u.s. intelligence officials announced in june russian hackers broke into the computer network of the democratic national committee.

2:38 am
vote. get it, and then disappear for four more years. >> after initially refusing to back down, last night burns deleted his tweet, and apologized. >> i'm going to apologize for the offensive picture that many thought was offensive. but i'm not apologizing for the message that it was carrying in reference to i still believe hillary clinton, and the democratic party do pander at the black people. i do believe that we have been worst off eight years under democrat rule. >> donald trump's campaign is distancing itself from one of his most controversial supporters, david duke the former kkk leader and current candidate for senate put out a robo call urging people to vote for him and for trump. >> hi, this is david duke, i'm sorry i missed you. i'm running for u.s. senate. i'll tell the truth but no other candidate will dare say.
2:39 am
unless massive immigration is stopped now, we'll be outnumbered and outvoted in our own nation. we're losing our gun rights. our free speech. we're taxed to death. we're losing our jobs and businesses to unfair trade. we're losing our country. it's time to stand up and vote for donald trump for president, and vote for me, david duke for the u.s. senate. >> in response the robo call a trump campaign aide tells nbc news quote mr. trump has continued to denounce david duke and any group or individual associated with a message of hate. there is no place for this in the republican party, or our country. we have no knowledge of these calls or any related activities but strongly condemn and disavow. now earlier this year trump did not reject duke's support outright telling an interviewer i don't know david duke, but then quickly denounced him after an uproar. all right let's turn now to business where myleene will now offer a generic version of the epi pen in an effort to hush outrage over the product's rapid price increase. hadi gamble joins us live from
2:40 am
