2:00 am
tonight as we start off a new week. thank you for being with us. good night from nbc news headquarters in new york. an escalating war of words. north korea is calling president trump's latest threat a war of words. the white house says it's abs d absurd. could the last-ditch effort to replace and repeal obamacare be dead. susan collins. been nearly a week since hurricane maria made landfall in puerto rico. some say the u.s. territory is being forgotten. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday september 26.
2:01 am
i'm a.m. ayman mohyeldin. we begin with the latest. yesterday outside the millennial hilton hotel across from it will united nations here in new york city, north korean's foreign minister said the united states has declared war on his country and to expect counter measures.
2:02 am
the white house meanwhile says this is not the case. >> we've not declared war on north korea. frankly the suggestion of that is absurd. it's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft over international waters. our goal is the same. we continue to seek the peaceful denuclearization of north korea. doing that through both the maximum and diplomatic pressures as possible at this point. >> national security adviser hr mcmaster is also defending the
2:03 am
president's comments. trump's rhetoric is driving kim jong-un closer to war. we cannot completely discount that possibility. >> let's go to beijing china. janice, good to talk to you this morning. we have both china and so you recollect vowing there will be no fighting on the korean peninsula. seems as though we are heading in that direction. >> we have to bear in mind that north korea has a history of accusing the u.s. of declarations of war. they've done so in the past in reaction to economic sanctions, military exercises, and other measures. there's also unfortunately a precedent for shooting down u.s. aircraft. they've done so twice since the end of the korean war. what has seasoned analysts and diplomats worried right now is
2:04 am
this constant sparring and the threat of miscalculation that it creates. south korea has been asking for a level headed response. they say accidents in the region right now could spiral out of control. it is important to note these are words. they are comments. there has been no change in posture. the u.s. continues to use diplomatic measures as tools. the question of course is can there be a dull mad us exit. kim jong-un has weapons and wants to be a nuclear state. the u.s. refuses to accept north korea as a nuclear state. add in china growing increasingly alarmed at this point, they're saying there could be no military option that is viable and that war on the peninsula would produce no winner. yaz min. >> thank you. meanwhile back at home, president trump is facing
2:05 am
criticism. >> the president of the united states, i hate to see him giving all platform to kim jong-un. kim jong-un is a bully. i don't think he's going to ever do any of these things. anything he does has a return address so he must know that it's bad news for his people. should he do anything, the president of the united states shouldn't be engaged in that tit for tat with someone as dreadful as he is. >> comments come on the heels of la times report. repeatedly warned him not to deliver a personal attack on kim jong-un. as the insult on the u.n. stage could irreparably escalate tensions and shut off any chance for negotiations. new overnight from the middle east. three israeli border police were killed this morning about 11 miles northwest of jerusalem. israel police released this photo of the fun. we're told the alleged attacker,
2:06 am
37-year-old palestinian was also killed. officials say he entered through an employee entrance and once inside he opened fire on the guards, killing three and injuring another. puerto rico continues to reel from hurricane maria, president trump decided to hone in on the islands financial problems. the president comes under fire for talking more about flags and football than the devastation in puerto rico. last night tweeted texas and florida are doing great. puerto rico which was already suffering from broken infrastructure and massive debt is in deep trouble. it's old electrical grid which was in terrible shape was devastated. much of the islands was destroyed. with billions of dollars owed to the banks. food water and medical are top priorities. those remarks came moments after interview with hillary clinton aired on msnbc. >> he clearly doesn't want to talk about puerto rico. you know, what more than 3.5
2:07 am
american citizens along with the u.s. virgin islands not interested, doesn't say a word about it. now fema is down there. i've called on them to send the navy particularly the naval hospital ship called u.s. comfort. i really think that would be a big help. we don't hear a word. we don't hear anybody high up in the administration. you don't hear from the vice president or anybody else. so he doesn't think that has any political relevance and it certainly is not personally important. >> meanwhile this eerie nighttime photo from space shows puerto rico before and after hurricane maria knocked out photo. the photo on the bottom shows the island completely in the dark. tonight will be the seventh knight without any electricity on the island. hear what the governor thinks about the response when he joins morning joe for a live interview later this morning. joining now, jackie good to talk to you this morning. i know you returned from puerto
2:08 am
rico late last night. talk to us about what you saw. >> there's really very little sense of normalcy on the ground. we were driving around the streets of old san juan. no people. every once in a while you see pockets of people wondering around and managed to find a cell signal to call home. some have not talked to families yet to let them know they're okay. in terms of devastation, we landed at an airport near san juan and one hanger just completely destroyed. large chunks of metal all over the road. trees up ended. some of the worst consequences are things that can't immediately be seen, the lack of water: the lack of power. coast guard officials down there helping to provide security. they told us people are stealing generators out of their neighbors backyards in the middle of the night to be able to have some power. >> let me ask you about the recovery efforts particularly coming from capitol hill like we saw after harvey and irma.
2:09 am
we saw congress come together to pass emergency funding for that relief effort. what do you think it's going to take to get a similar deal for the people of puerto rico in their recovery efforts? is this you think going to be an afterthought in washington. >> the at large representatives for puerto rico and virgin islands definitely expressed concern that because puerto rico is not a state, it's not going to get the same attention from congress. so they're working right now to put together a coalition of lawmakers who either have large puerto rico constituency particularly the delegations from new york and florida or people who have a personal interest in puerto rico to really be the voice for this cause on capitol hill. senator marco rubio from florida is expected to be a part of that. also on our trip yesterday. he said he expects congress to deal with the funding package for both hurricanes irma irma and maria later this month. still to be seen because of the debt crisis puerto rico has been
2:10 am
in, looking at more than just a one time bailout here. >> hard to imagine 3.5 americans not getting help they need for relief. in washington, d.c. thank you very much. the last ditch republican effort to pass a health care bill appears to have collapsed yesterday evening senator susan collins of maine announced her opposition to the bill. sweeping reforms to our health care system and medicaid can't be done well in compressed time frame. this after senator john mccain said he opposed the process in which the reforms were being made. senator rand paul affirmed his opposition to the substance of the bill. >> my opinion from the get go on this particular bill t graham-cassidy bill, it's fake repeal. the end repeal would be food fight over the formula every time one party takes over. >> this as the congressional budget office released a
2:11 am
preliminary bill. ten year period the legislation would reduce the deficit by $133 billion. people with comprehensive health insurance that covers high cost medical events would be reduced by millions. protesters disrupted a hearing of the senate finance committee. chanting against custom medicaid. would be lower due to large reducti reductions. according to the objection. despite the odds against them. cosponsor lindsey graham said he had not given up yet. >> we're going to press on and it's okay to sloet. it's okay to fall short if you do. >> last night president trump continued to focus blame for health care's failure on senator john mccain. tweeting a six and a half minute compilation of the video. the many clips talking about john mccain repealing and replacing obamacare. my has he changed complete change of years of talk. earlier slammed mccain during a
2:12 am
radio interview. >> we have 52 senators. so you lose two, you're out. when i ran, i was told i would have a bill on my desk and sign it day one. what mccain has done is a tremendous slap in the face of the republican party. that's the only reason we don't have it is because of john mccain. >> as the president trump's sharp condemnation over professional athletes during the national anthem continues, the white house is doubling down in the defense of the president's criticism. demonstrations continued last night as arizona cardinals along with opponents dallas cowboys linked arms with teammates during the national anthem in a show of unity. cardinals were also joined by members of the military for the display. ahead of the anthem, cowboys joined by the team's owner took a knee in a repeat of demonstration scene across the league just one day before. the move was met with boos from
2:13 am
the arizona crowd. after the game jones said he believed the move was not a departure from previous comments in which he said he would not protests during the anthem. continued to weigh in on the matter yesterday in a series of tweets. the president stated the issue has nothing to do with race. it is about respect for our country, flag and national anthem. nfl must respect this. tremendous backlash against the nfl and players for disrespect of our country. hashtag stand for our anthem. president also disputed report that chief of staff is not happy over clash with proathlete writing general john kelly totally agrees with my stance on nfl players and the fact that they should not be disrespecting or flag our great country. the white house reiterated stance over the protest. >> this isn't about the president being against anyone, but this is about the president and millions of americans being
2:14 am
for something. being for honoring or flag. honoring or national anthem and honoring the men and women who fought to defend it. >> still generating a lot of debate across the country. still ahead. was it fake news. multiple outlets are claiming iran's missile test may not have actually happened. later reported that jared kushner used private e-mail for white house business. might not be alone. turns out five other advisers may have been doing the same thing. those stories and a check on your weather when we come back.

. meanwhile, white house press secretary sara huckabee sanders is hitting back at allegations saying quote, we have not declared war on north korea and calling the suggestion absurd. joining us live, janice, good to have you back with us. let's talk about north korean foreign minister here. saying his country now has every right to shoot down american bombers. we know they've been flying them very close to the border. although in international airspace. even if they are not inside north korea's airspace, are they potentially at risk here?
2:33 am
janice macky fray er. y frayer. what worries seasoned analysts and diplomats is the territory we're in now. the volley, verbal assaults are becoming personal. they say the risk of miscalculation is edging uncomfortably higher. south korea is also asking for a level headed response. because they say an accident in the region at this point could see things spiral very quickly. away we need to remember at this point is that they are words. they are just comments at this point. the posture on neither side has changed.
2:34 am
north korea wants to be recognized as a nuclear state. that's not something the u.s. is going to do. china is trying to urge restraint. saying this is a dangerous time and war on the peninsula will really yield no winner. ayman. >> live in beijing, thank you. new polling shows a majority of americans disapprove of president trump's handling of the situation with north korea. according to a cbs news poll, 59% see north korea's weapon program as a threat that can be contained for now. 33% believe the situation requires military action. overall, 53% of americans say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the situation with north korea compared to 39% who approve. if you break it down by party line, only 12% of democrats approve of president trump's handolo
2:35 am
handling of the situation. now on the republican side, 79% approve. 17% disapprove. the cbs news poll also finds that just over half of all americans feel president trump is making u.s. image in the world weaker rather than stronger. up six points since april. go back to washington now. joining us once again. let's talk about north korea with the president claiming that kim jong-un won't be around for much longer in a tweet that he sent out. now north korea saying that is a declaration of war. of course we're very used to the president's tweet stirring up controversial here. can we take this as a policy position. >> it's a really interesting question. every time the president speaks, that's significant and we should be paying attention. at the same time, these things are typically not done on twitter feed. it opens up really interesting issues. we saw this when the president announced the dod transgender ban. the pentagon said we don't know
2:36 am
what to do with the tweet. we need some sort of guidance. in this case there could be detrimental affects if north korea shoots down an american bomber, going to provoke some response from the u.s. >> i know you covered the pentagon. obviously very plugged in there. give us a sense if you feel based on your sources, your reporting, your contacts. negotiations and sanctions are the only way to go here. do you see any other options involving the military. what are you hearing from the president's generals. >> i think there's absolutely military option. i think there always has been a military option. depending on a plan for everything. most agree that is not the best path forward and that negotiations and sanctions should absolutely be the first priority. we heard defense secretary mathis say we are never out of diplomatic solutions. that should be the way we try to go.
2:37 am
let's turn to a developing story we first reported on yesterday. more white house advisers have used private e-mail accounts to discuss government matters. six of the president's closest advisers have occasionally used private accounts. includes jared kushner, former chief strategist steve bannon, exchief of staff, reince priebus, economic adviser gary cohe
2:38 am
cohen. they've been instructed to use government e-mail for official business and only use that e-mail. >> in response to "new york times" story t white house repeated that guidance and added quote, they are further instructed that if they receive work-related communication on personal accounts, they should be forwarded to official e-mail accounts. nbc is awaiting a comment on whether any classified material was sent or received on a personal account. kushner's lawyer said he preserved the private e-mail by forwarding to official account. white house would not commit to releasing e-mails. yesterday former democratic nominee hillary clinton she went in. the hypocrisy of this administration who knew there was no real scandal. who knew that there was, you know, basis for all their hyper ventilating. republican members of congress who politicized the deaths in benghazi.
2:39 am
we're finding with the latest revelation they didn't mean any of it. it's the height of hypocrisy. if they were sincere, you would have the republican members of congress calling for an investigation. >> but last night republican house oversight committee chair joined in giving the white house two weeks to identify officials and provide accounts and cell phone numbers that they used. coming up next, joe and mika speak with the times reporter who broke this story. "washington post" is reporting that russia bought ads on facebook to show sophisticated understanding. targeting users based on political and demographic leanings to send contrary messages to black lives matter or other ways like highlights support for hillary clinton among muslim women. paper sights people familiar with the influence campaign. this comes after earlier reporting from the post about

2:41 am
ads that were completely false. i don't believe in the second amendment. i believe in the second amendment. >> well, that's a new strategy. earlier in the day president trump distanced himself for more who has led in a public polling. former congressman anthony weiner has been sentenced to two years in prison for sectioning with a 15-year-old girl. sobbed as the judge handed down the 21 month sentence. prosecutors had asked for 21-27 months. i was a very sick man for a long time. i had a disease. i had no excuse. this is his third time for being exposed for sectioning. first and last teenage victim. soon to be ex-wife was not in the courtroom, but did write a letter asking for leniency on
