sanders, they're hitting a number of states new hampshire, michigan, illinois, and then of course ohio and pennsylvania, two of the biggest battleground states out there as you noted richard this is going to be the first time in more than a week that we've seen hillary clinton campaigning. she's been out there doing a lot of fund-raisers but in terms of public events she hasn't been out there for several days. so we'll see that today, if they try to catch up. her numbers have been dropping but donald trump's numbers interestingly have not been gaining. a lot of that going to third party and other candidates. >> tracie potts in washington, d.c. thank you, tracie. of course we'll have more on the election later on in the show. coming up on wednesday, nbc news along with iraq and afghanistan veterans of america will host hillary clinton and donald trump for a live televised prime-time forum. this is a first. it will focus exclusively on issues the next president will have to confront. as commander in chief wednesday 8:00 p.m. eastern on nbc and msnbc hosted by matt lauer. now to china where president

2:06 am
are been so many cessations of hostilities agreements in syria or attempts to broker them that have faltered. there's a -- there's not a lot of goodwill between the president, and vladimir putin but of course the president said he had to give this a try. he's very concerned about the humanitarian situation in syria deteriorating. they also talked about cybersecurity, and the allegations that the russians have been hacking into the dnc, and to some state voter rolls of late. so a long agenda. richard? >> ron, you are not done on the road there. you'll be, of course, watching the president as he has a first on his next stop, this as accomplishing some things there in china such as the issue related to climate change, and the issue of brexit. he had also discussion with the prime minister of britain. >> he did. those meetings went well, they say. and from here the president's
2:07 am
going to laos. he will be the first american president, sitting president, to visit that country. that figured so prominently in the vietnam war. laos has been called the most heavily bombarded, bombed country on earth. a small country where the united states dropped a significant amount of munitions during the war. and that's a big issue now, because there's a significant amount of unexploded ordnance there that the looaotian government wants to see removed. the president is going there to attend some regional summits but that issue of unexploded ordnance is going to figure prominently. >> the president will be making remarks in the 6:00 a.m. eastern hour. we'll be having that for you right here on msnbc. nbc's ron allen with the president there in hangzhou, china, 5:00 in the afternoon. thank you, ron. today, lane would have turned 3 years old. but we celebrate his first
2:08 am
birthday in heaven with the community that has surrounded us with love and support. >> anyone that knows me knows i don't like to speak, but my baby, i owe it to him to honor him, so, his mommy needed to say, happy birthday laney. you're in our hearts today, and every second of every other day. >> heartbreaking words as you see there, as the parents of this young boy speak publicly for the first time since his tragic death. lane was just 2 years old when he was attacked, and killed by an alligator at florida's walt disney world resort back in june. since that accident, his parents have started a foundation in his honor. family, friends and strangers gathered to celebrate what would have been lane's third birthday. they were asked to dress in blue. that was his favorite color. lane's father reflected on how the family were handling that heartbreak. >> we often speak about how lucky we were to have spent 2 years, 9 months and 11 days as a complete family.
2:09 am
my wife would tell you those were the happiest days of her life, and i couldn't agree more. but i'm also confident that our faith has lifted us up, as we fight every day to find peace. lane and ella used to say to their mommy and daddy that they loved them up to the sky and down to the grass. so i've taken the liberties, as i close, by saying lane, ella, we love you up to heaven, and down to the grass. happy birthday, buddy. we miss you. >> up to the sky. and up to heaven. standing in the shape of a heart 5,000 balloons released into the sky in memory of the little boy lane. one ohio dental patient learns that mixing guns and nitrous is no laughing matter after the man went to the dentist he was placed under nitrous oxide it was then when

2:11 am
of 40, 50 miles per hour. hopefully not too many power outages. wind forecast, light this morning as we go throughout the evening hours. that's when it picks up a little bit. these purples and pinks, 40 to 50-mile-per-hour winds. very close to southern new england. and that will be right near areas of eastern long island and southern new england late tonight through tomorrow morning. then the storm gets much weaker after that. so things will begin to improve. so far as the forecast goes today, again, obviously new england's being lashed. and also some thunderstorm down along the golf coast. well, how about this story? do you brief bleu cheese or ranch? professional eaters faced off in the 15th annual national chicken wing festival, where else, buffalo, new york? joey chestnut won for the third straight year eating 188 wings in 12 minutes. give that guy a little bit of antacid and congratulations. msnbc live back in two.

2:15 am
at this scene out of london. it represents the 1666 fire that set the city up in flames, and surprisingly less than ten people died from that fire at the time. many homes were completely destroyed. and while it might be a strange event to celebrate londoners gathered around the river thames to commemorate the event from 350 years ago. any reason to celebrate. it was on this very day in 1997 that mother teresa died. but on sunday pope francis canonized saint teresa of calcutta. in front of more than 120,000 faithful at the vatican. nbc was there for that. we're joined live from the vatican right now. and what an auspicious moment for so many who loved mother teresa here. >> well, richard the celebration for mother teresa's elevation to sainthood started yesterday morning and they're still continuing. i don't know whether you can hear it but there is a thanksgiving mass being held right now behind me in st. peter's square, being held by
2:16 am
the secretary of state peay ato. it is marking the first feast day of saint teresa of calcutta. the new feast day on the catholic calendar now will be celebrated every 5th of september from now on. now, not too many people in the square right now, these are working on monday. but yesterday there were 120,000 people from all over the world, including the u.s., packing up st. peter's square and the surrounding areas around the vatican. they came here to see pope francis recognize what they believed for decades now, that saint -- well mother teresa, is a saint now. but she has been a saint even when she was alive decades before her death 19 years to this day. 19 years ago to this day, richard. >> so many folks watching that happen and great to hear the news. she now one of what some 780 women that have been canonized and claudio, over the course of all those centuries, just 10,000 total so she's a very rare saint, if you will. >> right. >> thank you so much, live for

us from vatican. a protest of a four-state, $3.8 billion oil pipeline turned violent over the weekend after several hundred protesters in north dakota confronted construction crews for destroying american indian burial and cultural sites. demonstrators supporting the standing rock sioux tribe faced off with private security officers who used dogs and pepper spray. over 30 people were injured there. the incident comes after hundreds of native americans from tribes across the country set up camp near a construction site to protest the dakota access pipeline. the university lecturer who gained national attention, you might remember this, after video footage of her assaulting a student journalist went viral, well she has landed a new job. >> you need to get out! >> i actually don't. >> all right. >> melissa click was fired after that interference with a journalist during student protests nearly one year ago. the former university of missouri professor has landed a one-year lecturing position at

2:19 am
all of these jerseys in the sales bin and now they're back selling for a full retail price of $99.99. clearly all the controversy surrounding colin hasn't done anything to sales. and another story that we are keeping an eye on is the fact that many retailers today in the united states are seeming to move towards cashless checkout. they say it's more cost efficient and fights crime. the big question of course is with no law on the books forcing these retailers to take cash whether or not this trend is something that we'll see continue. >> i wish we had that when i used to work a register. i couldn't count to ten if my life counted on it. thank you so much, hadley. you have a great day. just ahead, brand-new poll numbers this morning in the race for the white house. first john oliver has some thoughts on the holiday. >> there are some things that after this labor day we should stop doing and then never do again. for instance let's stop saying that's interesting when we mean, that is not interesting. from now on when someone tells you a boring story simply say,

my wife would tell you those were the happiest days of her life, and i couldn't agree more. but i'm also confident that our faith has lifted us up, as we fight every day to find peace. lane and ella used to say to their mommy and daddy that they loved them up to the sky and down to the grass. so i've taken the liberties, as i close, by saying lane, ella, we love you up to heaven, and down to the grass. happy birthday, buddy. we miss you. >> up to the sky. and up to heaven. standing in the shape of a heart 5,000 balloons released into the sky in memory of the little boy lane. one ohio dental patient learns that mixing guns and nitrous is no laughing matter after the man went to the dentist he was placed under nitrous oxide it was then when he went to grab his phone when he thought he heard it ring only he accidentally grabbed his gun.
