this morning. joining us for a preview is moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. >> trump has angered democrats with his campaign that's expected, but managed to offend members of his own party and is gaining popularity. is this part of a master strategy or what? >> i don't know if there is a master strategy to trump. that has a lot of folks in the campaigns that are competing with trump scratching their heads. he is not playing by conventional rules, by conventional campaign tactics. that makes it hard to prepare to deal with him. and you'll see, we have a lot of focus this morning on both that debate and, of course, the news about joe biden. i will have trump on. how do you prepare to debate trump, how is trump preparing to

debate. i'm curious about how donald trump will debate himself. we know who eight of the candidates will be who will get the final two spots, new polling out this morning will indicate which of the three big state governors, all of whom seem to be vying for two of the last three spots, which is most likely to be left off the stage. >> of course we should mention the first national gop debate is coming up this week. it's a packed field. to be determined who will be there. while i still have you, talk to us about this latest news from joe biden, from the vice president. >> well, look you know the -- it all began with an antidote in this morning's "new york times" that indicated there was sort of a death bed ask that boeau biden made of his father that he wanted him to run.
7:56 am
all reporting is that many of his family members have been pushing for him to run. the only one we don't know about is his wife. biden himself said for four months he will make a decision at the end of the summer. my reporting indicates that people close to biden say the new york times is hyping things up. but that said there will be a big vacation before labor day and that's where they will have a conversation about where his head is at and whether or not he wants to do this. i think we'll hear from him after labor day on a final decision. >> thank you for your insight. chuck todd moderator of "meet the press."
