7:02 am
race in north carolina where president obama will be campaigning with hillary clinton, their first trip together. donald trump has his own event there today. this as our new nbc survey monkey online tracking poll shows clinton leading trump five points nationally. let's start with andrea mitchell in charlotte this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama will go all out in the first campaign appearance with hillary clinton today giving her a ride here on air force one. they've been teammates. even rivals. and today president obama will do what few other incumbent presidents have. lend his political firepower to his party's likely nominee trying to help elect hillary clinton. >> i'm with her. i am fired up. i cannot wait to get out there and campaign for hillary. >> reporter: he'll be the first incumbent since ronald reagan to
7:03 am
campaign actively for his successor. many are too unpopular or too controversial to be asked but mr. obama's popularity is above 50%. a huge benefit to clinton in battleground states like north carolina. president obama is giving hillary clinton a ride on air force one and donald trump has pounced. usually the campaign picks up part of the expense for air force one when used for political travel. today's speech is about clinton and the economy, what's achieved so far and what more needs to be done. officials tell nbc news not a broad attack on president obama but the president has been slamming trump for comments and polici polici policies aides say mr. obama e sees as offensive.
7:04 am
in fact, the president has plenty of motivation to want to defeat trump. starting with trump's birther challenge to mr. obama's legitimacy. >> you are not allowed to be a president if you were not born in this country. he may not have been born in this country. >> reporter: the timing of today's appearance is awkward coming so soon after hillary clinton's interview with the fbi and her husband meeting with the attorney general and donald trump is not going to let any time go by. he's playing tag team coming here to the state to north carolina tonight just after clinton and obama take off. >> thank you. donald trump also stepping up his search for a running mate tweeting about possible picks and responding to the firestorm over an image he tweeted that is viewed by some as anti-semitic. >> reporter: trump is under fire for that tweet that many saw as anti-semitic and now taking the
7:05 am
unusual move of tweeting about who he's meeting for potential running mate. donald trump trying to blame hillary clinton for a tweet he sent out showing clinton over a pile of money with the caption the most corrupt candidate ever in what many consider a star of david. trump deleted the image within hours but not before a firestorm of criticism. hillary clinton's campaign calls it blatantly anti-semitic saying it's a pattern that should give voters major cause for concern and now trump's campaign is defending the tweet arguing the star was really a sheriff's star adding clinton through her surrogates is trying to divert attention from dishonest behavior of herself and her husband. the statement came monday night after trump's tweets on a vp pick were not changing the subject. two weeks before the convention and the candidate is reminding people he's narrowing down his
7:06 am
options tweeting about meetings with two potential picks at his golf course over the weekend. only a day after the sit down and pence was forced to comment on trump's controversial tweet. >> you know, i think the campaign has addressed that. i would just say that my focus is indiana. >> reporter: also on trump's list, newt gingrich but again does gingrich want to do? >> being vice president means you have to go to meetings. you have to sit around. you have to deal with the press all the time. you have to deal with congress. i used to be a congressman. i know what it's like to deal with congressmen. >> the next president of the united states. >> reporter: sources close to governor chris christie say he's interested but with a 26% approval rating in new jersey, it's not clear the governor could even deliver his home state. speculation right now is that
7:07 am
the decision could come as early as next week but sources close to the candidate and the campaign remind me that donald trump is unpredictable. he could pick somebody completely different and make the announcement much sooner than you think. savannah and willie? >> katy tur, thank you. nicole wallace, nbc political analyst, good morning. le let's start with the democrats. is it upside for hillary clinton to campaign with president obama or downside for reporters who don't want a third obama term? >> in this climate, a political year where everything is on its head, these horrific tragedies, terrorism really from all around the globe and sadly here at home, she is attaching herself, which she has already done, to obama's foreign policy record and after trump had the worst month of his candidacy, he still edges out hillary clinton on that single question of who do
7:08 am
you trust to protect this country against the threat of terrorism? i think the one risk for her is to attach herself too much to the obama foreign policy widely viewed by republicans and independents to be ineffective on that front. >> so she'll be out with democratic all-stars. what does she need out of these people? is it about the honest and trustworthy question? >> the other places she has a deficit in our poll is the question of honesty and trustworthines trustworthiness. she's running a top shelf campaign. she has the president of the united states who made this fight against trump personal for him in comments in his official role taken on the central tenants of trump and trumpism she has elizabeth warren out
7:09 am
there throwing sharpest knives on the shelf but losing to trump in terms of honest and trustworthiness. >> trump is out there tweeting about who he's meeting with. we all know about it. we've seen names on the short list. complete thing for sentence. the best vp for donald trump is someone who -- >> who tells him how bad things are really going behind closed doors but puts a good face on the campaign in public. i think by that measure chris christie is probably the person he wants to pick. i've seen candidates pick the person they want. i think george bush wanted to pick dick cheney and he did. obama wanted to pick joe biden and he did. they have picked candidates that would make the biggest splash sarah palin was in that category. nobody knows what donald trump is going to do except donald trump. >> thank you, nicole.
7:10 am
to an historic achievement for space exploration overnight. we're geeking out over this. after a five-year journey, a solar powered probe has arrived in orbit around jupiter. >> nasa scientists at the jet propulsion lab in southern california say it's the toughest thing they've ever done putting a spacecraft named juno into jupiter's orbit overnight. it was all for juno, nasa's space probe that successfully entered jupiter's orbit after a five-year journey. >> nasa did it again! that says it all to me. >> reporter: juno's ambitious mission, figure out how jupiter became a planet and how our

7:12 am
that was just tens of kilometers large, isn't that incredible? >> reporter: right now aboard juno there's a special camera that will take color pictures of the planet and nasa is helping for your help at home in deciding where to point that camera for jupiter's up close moment and even though juno traveled for a long five years, arrived right on time starting its orbit of jupiter just one second off schedule. willie, savannah? >> just astounding. thank you so much. i was thinking about this this morning. a five-year trip and they nail it within one second. say it again. people at nasa are geniuses. >> imagine whoever did that mathematical equation. impressive. now to this ongoing search for whomever left a homemade explosive in central park that seriously injured a teenager from virginia over the holiday weekend. today craig melvin is in central park this morning with the latest on this. craig, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. connor golden's life was changed

7:14 am
do but does he know? >> reporter: police now searching for clues and witnesses. investigators believe the blast was a result of someone experimenting with fireworks and not a terrorist act. >> we would not categorize this as an explosive divide number one. number two, it was not placed there as part of an experiment to have someone be hurt or step on it or touch it or not at all. >> reporter: experts believe it was created by an parexperiment. the tragedy happening on a holiday weekend known for firework injuries. on sunday, several people were injured in kentucky when a firework misfired. in plymouth, massachusetts, a barge caught fire cutting the show short. fortunately no one was hurt. in new york on monday, police were out in full force to protect the 4 million expected for the fourth of july
