that's going to wrap-up this hour of "msnbc live." i'm peter alexander. my friend, tamron hall, picking up coverage right now. inde >> indeed i am. thanks friend. republican loyalty to donald trump. now you have vice presidential nominee, mike pence, as well as donald trump not backing down on praising russian president, vladimir putin. trump insisting that putin is a stronger leader than president obama. now republican leaders are on the spot again. will they tear away from their nominee. and happening today, hillary clinton holds a meeting with top foreign policy and national security experts. this as clinton gains the support of more generals and admirals following nbc's commander-in-chief forum. but new polls show her lead is shrinking in some key states. chuck todd will join me live to
talk about these new numbers. plus, more players now plan a protest in solidarity with nfl star, colin kaepernick. and there's word that the entire seattle seahawks' team, that the team is planning a, quote, display of unity as the nfl season starts. this as the 49ers now pledge to make a huge donation to some important charities. good morning, i'm tamron hall coming to you live from our msnbc headquarters in new york. 60 days left to go until the presidential election. and this morning, new controversy surrounding donald trump ignited by his comments in the interview, an interview, a new one, that aired on "rt america," the english language news channel sponsored by the russian government. now this new interview conducted by larry king, whom the trump campaign says is a personal friend of donald trump. in the interview, trump said this about the hacking u.s. experts believe was led by russia to disrupt the general election.
>> putin recently said that the hacking of the democratic national committee's e-mails was a public service. do you agree? >> i don't have any opinion on it. i don't know anything about it. i don't know who hacked. i'm not sure who -- you tell me who hacked. >> u.s. intelligence and law enforcement agencies reportedly are investigating whether russia launched the covert operation to disrupt the 2016 election. what do you make of that? >> i don't know. i mean, i've been hearing about it. i've been reading about it. i think it's probably unlikely. i think maybe the democrats are putting that out. who knows? but i think that it's pretty unlikely. but, you know, who knows? >> those remarks follow the firestorm of criticism trump is receiving, including from top republicans after praising vladimir putin during the nbc news commander-in-chief forum. >> if he says great things about
me, i'm going to say great things about him. certainly, in that system, he's been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader. >> let me say this about vladimir putin. vladimir putin is an aggressor that does not share our interests. vladimir putin is violating the sovereignty of neighboring countries. it certainly appears he is conducting in state-sponsored cyber attacks on what appears to be our political system system. that is not acting in our interests. and that is an adversarial stance and he is according like an adversary. >> are you concerned about donald trump praising vladimir putin? >> i made my points clear there. i'm not going to sit up here and do the tit for tat on what donald trump said last night or the night before about hillary versus donald. i'm not going to be the election year pundit. >> are you still comfortable voting for him to be commander-in-chief? >> i'll leave it at that. >> factor this in. of governor mike pence who arrived at the federal building in indianapolis, indiana, the
past hour for his first classified intelligence briefing continued where trump left off. >> i think it's inarguable that vladimir putin has been a stronger leader in his country than barack obama has been in this country. and that's going to change the day that donald trump becomes president of the united states of america. >> now all of this comes as the candidates hit the campaign trail again today. trump to address the values voters conference in washington this afternoon before holding a rally in pensacola, florida. hillary clinton holds a meeting wwth national security officials here in new york. as marking the 15th anniversary. her surrogates are spread out. tim kaine campaigning in virginia. elizabeth warren in pennsylvania. let's get to jacob rascon, live in pensacola, florida, where donald trump will hold that rally tonight. some interesting remarks from the trump campaign regarding this interview with larry king on essentially russian state
television. >> reporter: it's interesting. what is the strategy here? it seemed to have started out as an argument that our leaders are weak, and donald trump is strong. and one of the examples is how he says that putin walks all over our leaders. but he's gone a step further in heaping praise on vladimir putin, and it doesn't make sense in this regard. the american voter doesn't like vladimir putin. in our most recent poll, asking about whether they have a positive or negative view. only 8% of voters said they had a positive view of putin, and 59% had had a negative view. and so now you have trump continuing and now mike pence double down on this. and then this interview with larry king. now, the campaign is saying they didn't know that it was going to end up on russian tv. here's what they said. >> he actually did an interview with larry king, a personal friend of his, a friend of i'm sure around the table. and he said he was doing it for
his podcast, didn't know it would be on russian tv. >> how does something like that happen, that the campaign doesn't know his words are going to be played on kremlin state tv? larry king was doing the interview for kremlin state tv. >> for his podcast. i wasn't involved in the interview. >> reporter: it is, of course, surprising the campaign didn't know. and i'll he said with this. the voters we talk to for trump also say, and admit, they don't like putin. they frame it as they hope trump, the u.s. and putin can work together to defeat isis. that's the way they try to see it. tamron? >> now to the clinton campaign, nbc's kristen welker joins us live from where secretary clinton will continue the meeting focused on national security. yesterday on the tar hack, secretary clinton disavowing the comments made by donald trump. and we hear this response from speaker ryan. >> reporter: that's right.
i wouldn't be surprised if the clinton campaign seized upon those comments that trump made last night to larry king and perhaps discuss it here today. we're going to try to grab some of the officials who secretary clinton meets with. in terms of this meeting, tamron, secretary clinton really trying to showcase and flex her foreign policy officials, meeting with experts, including ousted cia director, petraeus. now that goes both ways, of course, because he was accused and charged with mishandling classified information. so that could create some tricky headlines for her. but some other big names here, as well. janet thnapolitano, lone wolves. cyber threats. cyber security. so all of that is going to be on the table and tamron, this is all a part of secretary clinton's new strategy, aimed at showing strength, but also her softer side. take a listen to what james
staff reason he's who is going to be at this meeting had to say earlier today on "morning joe." >> i think that on the idea that we're going to gain traction by building walls and cutting ourselves off, not only with mexico, but trying to get out of nato, allowing nuclear weapons overse overseas, i think that adds hugely dangerous amounts of tension to the mix. the way to solve these kinds of problems, nicole, is international collaboration and cooperation. it's inner agency integration. and it's getting the private sector working with the public sector. i think those are the things that secretary clinton is going to be talking about today at this meeting with the group she's assembled. >> reporter: so a little bit of a preview of what we might expect to hear from this meeting. a little bit of breaking news. we just learned that islamic will attend the 9/11 memorial here in new york on sunday. the campaign stressing she is not attending to campaign, not speaking in an official capacity. she and donald trump have agreed to suspend all campaign operations on sunday, tamron.
>> kristen welker, thank you. joining us now, sheila jackson lee, a democrat from texas and clinton supporter. congresswoman, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you for having me this morning. >> let me sk you about this new campaign memo out to clinton supporters. it outlines a focus on grass roots program in battleground states. it says that they have developed a truly coordinate campaign to win races up and down the ballot. and an pangs of the map into newly competitive says. we're going to talk about some new numbers out. but in these key battleground states, while still leading in most, hillary clinton's lead has shrunk over the past week. why do you believe that's happened? >> tamron, if you might allow me just to say that a few minutes ago, we stood on the steps of the united states capitol, republicans and democrats alike, and sang as we did some 15 years ago, "god bless america." and frankly, i think america needs the kind of commander-in-chief that former
secretary clinton will be. that means we take this race very seriously. we take the american people very seriously. we know that this race and any race for the highest office in the land, the commander-in-chief would be tight. regardless of who the opponent is. we're not going to rely upon the enormous errors and misjudgment and unfitness of the republican nominee, mr. trump. we're going to take consideration and concern for every single vote. that's why the campaign committed to a 50-state commitment and operation. that's why the campaign is well entrenched with individuals on the ground, leadership, organizers and just plain volunteers to be able to get former secretary clinton's message to the people. that not only will she care for this nation, but she has the ability to lead this nation. i think that's an important point, the message we want to get out. we don't want to win on name. we don't want to win on past successesme
successes. we want to win on the ability of this great woman, if i might say. leading this great nation. >> well, it's interesting. you talk about this moment of unity that we watched on capitol hill today. i want to read a little bit of what was in the "dallas morning news." an extraordinary move by this conservative paper in our home state, endorsing hillary clinton. trump's values are hostile to conservatism. he plays on fear, exploiting instincts onzen phobia, bringing out the worst in all of us, rather than the best. it goes on to talk about his serial shifts on fundamental issues revealing an astounding absence of preparedness. right now, it appears the race is a virtual dead heat in texas. 46-45%. in the commander-in-chief forum yesterday, or the day before, hosted by nbc, there was some -- i think it was some pause in hearing donald trump praise vladimir putin.
whether you're a democrat orra republican. in this unusual election cycle, how do you explain that someone can say nine controversial things in 24 minutes, but not be rejected by members of his own party who in a different world, if president had praised vladimir putin, would have perhaps ran out with their hair on fire? >> i'm aghast. and let me say that i'm very proud of the "dallas morning news," among many other papers in the state of texas. but i'm very proud of my fellow it texasens. this race is close. i think we're going to make history in texas, and frankly, i think we're going to be in the column for hillary rodham clinton. i think the real issue is what you have raised. anyone who has said our generals are sacrificing their, if you will -- their lives. willing to put their lives on the line and to attack them and say they're in rubble. anyone who refuses to call russia what it is, an aggressor,
that has stolen land from another country, crimea, that is threatening georgia. that won't sit down with the president of the united states to resolve syria. that is actually bombing parts of aleppo or supporting those who aren't, losing lives. all of this, as a member of the homeland security committee, one who is here on 9/11, frightens me. and it frightens the american people. and it frightens them because of the lack of judgment and temperament and the willingness to say anything without acknowledging the fact that words on the international arena, diplomacy, matter. i don't think mr. trump understands that. and so when they look, there will be debates. i think it's going to be a tough debate. this gentleman is a reality show actor, and so he knows how to play the audience. but we hope that the facts will come out, that if secretary clinton, former secretary clinton today is meeting with the former leaders of the department that i oversee,
chertoff and that they will see a person that is the commander-in-chief. and that's what the newspapers are seeing. they are absolutely outraged and fearful of what will happen if mr. trump gets anywhere near the oval office. >> congresswoman sheila jackson, thank you for your time. let me bring in moderator of "meet the press", chuck todd. let's talk about the state of this race. and i brought out the comparison of if president obama had had made this vladimir putin comment, solely based on and i know you the remember of the videos of president obama bowing before this person, bowing before this saudi leader and the reaction from the tea party alone at that time. how do you explain the state of the race now with vladimir putin so disliked in this country. >> right. >> with the gop unwilling to take a stand on this? >> i'll be honest.
this is mind-boggling. it is. part of it is, there is -- look, there is -- if you recall, i think part of this has to do with the conservative media is split into two camps. you sort of have the weekly standard national review, the intellectually driven true i'd logically conservative media and then the populist-driven. the breitbarts, the hannities, the drudge reports. amazing among the populist sites on the right how they have been sort of conditioning, if you want to call it that, been softening their attacks on putin for years. and for the last couple of years. and featuring him as a strong man, and almost celebrating the idea that trump and putin -- trump is -- putin is strong. that's my only explanation here. that they have sort of made it seem okay to some rank and file who only get their news from some of these populist sources. i think that's part of the issue. of i think this is going to
drive a deeper wedge into the party. if you think about it, tamron, we've gone through these different moments with trump. the muslim ban. that splintered the party a bit, and a small chunk, not a big chunk, sort of said, you know what, that's it. i can't support him. judge curiel, based on his ethnicity. that split off one chunk. i think this putin thing is going to split off another chunk of republicans here. it is -- i think it's -- it's going to be a bridge too far for some. i am surprised that it hasn't happened yet. but my goodness. how much smoke do we have to see here? it is just mind-boggling, all of this cozyingy up and playing nice with putin. four years ago, the entire republican party came down heavy on president obama, because they thought he wasn't taking the threat of putin's russia seriously enough. >> right. it is incredible. let's talk about the polls, 60 days out, florida poll shows clinton and trump now tied at 47%. ohio poll shows trump with a one-point lead. north carolina, clinton still leads by four points.
pennsylvania, her lead is at five points. right now, the state of the race as it relates to these numbers. i was curious watching your show yesterday. are people reacting to the news cycle? what -- how do you explain this back and forth of the movement when we really clearly at this point know both of these candidates? >> well, i think what you've seen here, and it's really -- if you look at these closely and in a couple cases trump's numbers have come up a little bit. but it really is more of an erosion of clinton, right? and it's been nationally. and to me, when you see the national numbers, it appears all but one outlier over at cnn. but most of the national polls seem to have the race somewhere in the three to five-point range. and if clinton is ahead by three to five points nationally, then all of those state numbers also make sense, right? that it would be essentially a margin of error race in ohio, a margin of error race in north carolina. so i think the polling -- and if she is ahead three to five, she could be ahead more in pennsylvania. so it all to me is comporting. but this -- tamron, this hasn't
been a whiplash. i really believe over the last six weeks it's been a slow erosion from clinton undecided and you've had some republicans that have been a never trump suddenly quietly get back on board. so trump is doing slightly better among republicans than he was six weeks ago. keep an eye on the following next week, tamron. in the last six weeks, one person missing from the campaign trail. barack obama. he goes back on the campaign trail. the last time he was her surrogate was at the democratic convention. and it was probably the most important moment for her campaign. i have a feeling you're going to see obama a lot now between now and the election. and she needs it, i think. >> i can't let you go without asking about gary johnson's aleppo moment. is he now still a factor in the polling, in the conversation? he's not going to see the debate stage, it appears. >> it's a -- yeah. look, this is a -- this could be a gift to brooklyn. a gift to the clinton campaign. every four-way match-up, right,
whenever you see it two-way to four-way, the race gets closer. trump does better in the four-way match-up. there is a whole bunch of people that don't like trump that in a way-two would vote clinton but a four-way might go somewhere else. i think johnson had a moment there. when you're a third-party moment, you have to make the most of it. he had a moment, a big error. he may have blown it. i think he had about a ten-day window to get to 15% nationally. they were buying advertising out west. they had a plan. i think now he definitely comes up short. and without getting into the debates, i don't see how he becomes a factor. >> all right, chuck, thank you. i think your putin explanation of the divide and the party is the best i've heard. because it is a very baffling point in our history that we're having this discussion about vladimir putin. thank you so much, buddy. real appreciate it. you can watch "meet the press" this sunday on your local nbc station. coming up, donald trump refuses to answer questions about the birther conspiracy. he now says that he doesn't talk
about it any more. well, his surrogates, two of the top ones, are discussing it. and claiming that donald trump reversed his birtherism stance years ago. >> so in other words, he was born in the united states. do you confirm that? do you agree with that? >> i confirm that, and donald trump now confirms that. you know, hillary clinton -- >> when did he do that? when did he do that? >> he did that -- >> when did he do huh? >> two years ago! two years ago. three years ago. >> when -- he has now accepted that birtherism is nonsense. and the "washingtoo post" editorial takes a stance against the server. time to stop fixating on the e-mails. we'll tell you what else. and new reaction from president obama this morning after north korea conducts its largest-ever nuclear test. now the biggest concern is north korea getting closer to a nuclear missile that could reach the u.s. we'll have the very latest on the reaction.
going to the skate park today? maybe... you can make it gr-r-reat! ♪ kellogg's frosted flakes gives you the sweet spark to go all in and let your great out. they're gr-r-reat! dog chow for 36 years now.d i've been making my dog girlfriend is 17 years old. she's been eating dog chow from her very first day and she can still chase squirrels. she can't catch them, but she can still chase them. after 17 years i'm still confident in feeding her dog chow because i see the high quality ingredients that go into it. i'm very proud to make dog chow right here in edmond, oklahoma.
north korea's biggest nuclear it test is sparking global outrage this morning. that tops our look at stories around the news nation. within the last hour, president obama issued a statement, saying he will be working with the u.n. security council, as well as the leaders of south korea and japan to impose new sanctions. the president also said the u.s. will take additional steps to defend our allies in the region, including our deployment of the missile defense system to south korea. it was north korea's second test in months. condemnation from china and japan. a new warning from the faa advising air travelers not to
use their galaxy note 7 smart phones on planes. there have been at least 35 reports with the batteries in the samsung phones exploding and catching fire. as a result, samsung recalled the roughly 2.5 million galaxy note 7s that were sold globally. overall, samsung phones are widely popular, accounting for 35% of smartphones in the u.s., compared to apple iphones at 32%. let's get more now from nbc's tom costello. >> reporter: tam rain, good day to you. this is a very special warning coming from the faa about a very specific phone. the samsung galaxy note 7 phone, which is already under a global recall. 2.5 million phones involved, because of the apparent tendency to overheat and catch fire. now the faa is saying if you bring this on board a plane, do not turn it on. in other words, keep it off. don't even listen to music. don't charge it onboard a plane
and do in the check it in your checked bag. lithi lithi lithium ion battery, illegal to ship in bulk because they could overheat and catch fire, posing a very serious risk to commercial aircraft. now the concern is of this specific phone, which some have said has overheated and burned their hands. in some cases burning a car to the ground. now they fear this could catch fire on board a passenger plane. again, this is about one specific phone, the galaxy note 7. if you bring it on board a plane, it must be in the off position at all times. not just wi-fi off, but off. but really, this is about the risk lithium ion batteries are posing. we have seen the propensity to overheat, catch fire and in some cases explode. coming up, a look at the political moments that top the headlines this past week. how will it impact next week?

>> i believe it, he believes it, we all believe it. >> except for, howard, we don't have any tape of donald trump ever reversing or poll jidsing or admitting these detectives who were sent to hawaii, incredible details, that all of it either was a lie, or he found nothing. >> yeah. and i always love it when chris matthews' eyes light up like that. he was making the exact point you just made. which is that donald trump has not said it. i don't think donald trump will say it. just having rudy guiliani say it or having kellyanne conway say it today is not the same thing. and don't forget, really, donald trump this time around entered the national stage as a birther. it was his original calling card and in a way the absolute essence of his identity in terms of name-calling, dictatorial behavior. it's essential to the persona of donald trump and i don't think you'll see it him change it
himself. >> we'll see if it's in the debates. >> it could be lester's first question. >> katie, let's switch to donald trump -- i know we have talked a lot about what he said regarding vladimir putin. one of the things that stuck out to me was this moment. let's play it. >> when referring to a comment that putin made about you, i think he called you a brilliant leader. you said it's always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his country and beyond. >> well, he does have an 82% approval rating, according to the different polls. who, by the way, some are based right here. >> katie, he's keeping up with -- vladimir putin's approval. but this man who obsesses over polls completely either doesn't accept or understand how -- how high vladimir putin's disapproval is among americans. among the world. >> well, as a conservative republican, i'm old enough to remember when we used to not like vladimir putin all that
much. we were sort of in line with the rest of america on that. and, you know, it says something about how far we have come. but also says something about donald trump, that he's willing to forgive people all kinds of acco acco accost atrocities, as long as they say nice things about him. and it's a very disturbing thing that you have a leader over there who, you know, crushes dissent, goes after journalists, is really, you know, when they talk about a strong man, it's not a compliment in most circles. but this is something that donald trump seems t admire, and all seems to be attached to the fact that putin likes him. and i think that that's a disturbing part of his sort of narcissistic behavior. >> so katie, listen. governor romney has taken a strong stance against donald trump a number of times. why aren't we seeing more republicans -- i know you were joking when you said i remember when we used to -- vladimir putin doesn't just crush opposition, he kills. he has taken lives of those who
have opposed him. why not a stronger response? is it again, we're asking this about speaker ryan and some of the other leadership. >> you know, it's befuddling to me. i to think you will see that in the days ahead. i think that republicans are going to be confronted with this question and more republicans will come out and try to, you know, definn themselves in a way that's different from the way that donald trump and mike pence have chosen to define themselves. but, you know, people feel like they're in a catch-22. you know, there are sort of accused of party disloyalty if they don't support this guy that's literally dragging our party over the cliff. and i think for a lot of us, it's very confusing, frustrating, and irritating. >> i should remind people of the op-ed august 15th, michael morale, acting director at the time. he said mr. putin played upon mr. trump's you will havulnerai compliments him.
we would say that mr. putin had recruited mr. trump as an agent. donald trump did this interview on russian television with larry king. his team now saying he didn't realize it was russian television. but howard, let me pivot to this "washington post" editorial. the hillary clinton e-mail story is out of control. they say mrs. clinton is hardly blameless. she treated the public's interests in the sound record keeping cavalierly. and imagine how history would judge today's americans. the records show that voters empowered a dangerous man because of a minor e-mail scandal there. is no equivalence between mrs. clinton's wrongs and mr. trump. this is the "washington post" editorial here. does hillary clinton now in joe scarborough's opinion -- as donald trump has tried to let's move on with his taxes. >> i would say, tamron, that if
hillary clinton can't pivot away from the e-mail story to the putin story, it will be campaign malpractice on the democrats' part. donald trump is fundamentally unamerican. if he is going to argue that he finds vladimir putin to be a worthy and respected and respectable person. if you start a long litany of what vladimir putin has done in russia, what he's done in the rest of the world, and you ask donald trump to defend it, point by point, that's several weeks worth of campaign attacks. i agree, hillary clinton has to get her positive story out. if she can't nail donald trump on putin, i don't know what she can nail him on. >> katie, i'm out of time, but i've got to ask you, donald trump's washington, d.c. policy staffers have quit from the campaign after not being paid or publicly recognized. what are you hearing about his
ground game after a report like this? >> well, i'm hearing that the republican national committee is doing everything that they can and they've got, you know, really pros there doing everything they can to try to help trump and try to help the rest of the ticket. but the trump campaign itself is a total staft disaster and nowhere near the operation we had even in 2012 and we weren't successful. >> katie, howard, thank you both. i appreciate you joining me. have a great weekend. coming up, more nfl players plan to protest in solidarity with colin kaepernick, and there is word now that the entire seattle seahawks team is planning a, quote, display of unity this weekend as the nfl season officially kicked off yesterday. the big games on sunday coming. before taking his team to state for the first time... gilman: go get it, marcus. go get it. ...coach gilman used his cash rewards credit card from bank of america to earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. at places like the battg cages. ♪ [ crowd cheers ] 2% back at grocery stores and now at wholesale clubs.

to look like. >> i'm curious about the diversity of the players who may participate in this unity. i asked this. dave zi ron has pointed out that has been the only white player to publicly show unity with kaepernick. obviously, that's not megan we're showing there. but that's what he notes. do you know if this show of unity will include diversity? >> i think it's going to be a team-wide thing. so, yeah, white players on the team. so i imagine that it will, and they have been talking with nate boyer, who is a former seahawk. he's a green beret and they have been talking to him, and i imagine that, yeah, this is going to be a -- about as much unity as you can see, diversity. so, yeah -- >> nate will be on with me, actually on monday. overall, whether it's the seahawks or the dallas cowboys, my team, of course, how has this impact the the nfl?
this was a team -- i guess i'm asking, matt, there was a time this would instantly be a career-ender. there has been some speculation about colin kaepernick's future. but also the surprise of unity from different teams. >> yeah. i think it's really interesting to think what this might look like in a month. i wasn't sure how much, you know -- this was going to keep going. but then you saw lane sit out. you saw megan rapinoe. and it keeps building and building. i don't know if it's going to flame out in a month or i don't know if we'll see entire teams doing this every game. so i'm just as curious as you are. but i think it's really interesting how this has kind of caught fire and gotten everybody talking. >> we know 20 years ago it would have been -- and was very different. >> i agree. >> took a stand in this way. thank you so much, matt. good luck to the saux. coming up, i'll look ahead at the hot topics on the sunday political shows. he's really coming up next.
i know i said it earlier. but he's really, really coming on the show. nbc senior political editor, mark murray. woah! you're not taking these. hey, hey, hey! you're not taking those. woah, woah! you're not taking that. come with me. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. mom, i'm taking the subaru. don't be late. even when we're not there to keep them safe,

unfit he is. >> hillary likes to play tough with russia. putin looks at her and he laughs, okay? i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. >> we are not putting ground troops into iraq ever of again. and we're not putting ground troops into syria. >> i'm pretty good with the body language. i can tell they were not happy. our leaders did not follow what they were recommending. >> i don't think the guy is qualified to be president of the united states. and every time he speaks, that opinion is confirmed. >> joining me now, nbc news senior political editor, mark murray. so mark, what sticks to the wall? what will we be talking about on sunday? >> tamron, this entire week. this started -- we now have the post labor day sprint going on. you saw the commander-in-chief forum that nbc and msnbc had on wednesday. and i do think that it still is
reverberating for donald trump and trump now finds himself on the defensive after the 48 hours after that forum. so i think that's a storyline. of course, 9/11 and the 15th anniversary is big. and tamron, looking ahead into next week, president obama hitting the campaign trail. you and chuck talked about it. i think that's a potential big moment to watch next week. >> we'll be watching "meet the press" to see some stories we'll likely be talking about on monday. thank you very much, mark. have a great weekend. >> thanks, tamron. you too. >> we'll be right back with "born in the usa." is it a caregiver determined to take care of her own? or is it a lifetime of work that blazes the path to your passions? your personal success takes a financial partner who values it as much as you do. learn more at tiaa.org

time now for our ongoing series "born in the usa" highlighting american business success stories. and today, we are throwing the spotlight on a company that's been called a pionr in the now $2.3 billion cold press juice industry. jodie and harlan launched water melon water just three years ago. the simple idea in mind,
healthy, yet delicious drink that helps customers understand the importance of clean eating. mean nothing preservatives or added sugar. water melon water uses water melons that would be discarded for cosmetic reasons. yes, ugly water melons. it's a win-win for them and for farmers who are able to turn a loss into a profit. the company has made quite a mark in a short time catching the eye of, yes, one of the world's biggest superstars in the process. earlier this year, beyonce became a major investor saying this is more than an investment and brand. it's an investment in female leaders, farmers, and the health of people and our planet. joining us now is jodie levy. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me, tamr tamron. >> the queen bee decides to invest in your company. what can you tell me about it? >> it was serendipitous.
we launched in late 2013 with whole foods. >> uh-huh. >> and the opening of the brooklyn store which got pushed and fushed and pushed. and on that same day, beyonce dropped her track "drunken love," which ends in the lyrics i've been drinking water melon which started an amazing connection between us and her firm parkwood and led to her attention on our mission-driven business. and as we started talking more and more, and sharing the story and, you know, me being a female entrepreneur and our connection to supporting american growers and usg waste melon to press cold-pressed use. we decided to go into business together. >> when you think about it, so much of our food obviously is visual, but to know that farmers lose profits because we don't want a fruit that has a blemish. perfectly edible, delicious, all of the great goodness, but it doesn't look perfect.
>> yeah. >> and they lose money. >> the ugly fruit movement is gaining awareness and we're proud to be part of that. for water melons, it's label the different than other produce. water melons are 18 to 24 pounds. with other fruits and vegetab s vegetables, they can ship to a retailer and kind of be discarded out, but for the water melon growers around the country, when they have 250,000 tons of sun-burned melons that aren't going to be sold, we can press them into perfectly good, highly functional hydration. >> all right. i'm going to get hydrated because i've had a long day and i was drinking last night like beyonce. and i have to give a shoutout tom louly, texas, my hometown which is famous for the water melon thump parade and i was the grand marshal a year ago. >> this is delicious. i really was drinking last night. thank you, congratulations on this. >> thank you so much. >> i'm sipping water melon juice, we'll be right back.
