everything mike pence isn't. fresh off republican convention, trump called in the rnc speech thursday night for the suspension of immigrants from countries affected by terrorism. in an exclusive interview to air on "meet the press" trump said even immigrants from france and germany could face quote extreme vetting. chuck todd asked trump what some observers saw as the dark tone of his acceptance speech. do you think it was dark? >> no. >> why. >> we'll solve the problems. sure, i talk about the problems but we'll solve the problems. >> you can see chuck's full interview on "meet the press." he says terrorism is his line for immigration pointing to the attacks in munich on friday and talking about the suicide attack in afghanistan on saturday.
8:04 am
80 are dead and isis is claiming responsibility. a university of florida football player being hailed as a hero. he stopped an apparent rape in progress in gainesville. he pulled a man off a woman by a dumpster when he realized she was unconscious. 34-year-old christopher saw was arrested and charged with sexually battery. a pitcher reportedly threw a fit because he didn't like the team's uniforms. chris sail was supposed to start last night's game in a throw back uniform from 1976. the disco uniforms. stories from the clubhouse say he was so up set he cut his and his teammates uniforms to pieces with scissors. the team scratched him from the game and sent him home. let's pull up a seat at the table to join another great group. a new york times columnist and the "true american murder and
8:05 am
mercy in texas" whose subject had dinner with president obama on thursday night. amazing. >> incredible. >> we're proud to say officially an nbc and msnbc contributor which means he now works for the man. welcome aboard. amy holms was an aid and speech writer to bill frist. she just now caught her breath after watching the events in cleveland. are you okay? >> all right. >> still working through it. >> hallie jackson, our outstanding road warrior correspondent covering this presidential campaign and democratic convention in philadelphia where she would be greeted with a parade and key to the city. >> i'm excited. >> glad to have you on. >> thank you. >> let's start halle with this dnc story. the e-mails found on wikileakwi 20,000 of them. the dnc and party at large had the finger on the scale for hillary clinton, jeff weaver the
8:06 am
campaign manager for bern noie sanders said somebody needs to be health accountable. >> this is only going to make bernie supporters at the convention more upset. you're going to see -- we were expecting protest and unrest, this adds fuel to the fire. i look at what happened at hillary clinton's rally yesterday when she brought up debbie schultz' name and people said dnc leaks reportedly. this issue is not going to go away and debbie schultz' terrible, no good, very bad year. it's been rough for her and this is just more problems. >> okay. let me rerun these to give people a sense of what we have. this is brad marshall, the dnc cfo e-mail he writes it may make no difference but can we get someone to ask about his believes. does he believe in god? he skated on saying he has a jewish heritage. i think i read he's an atheist.
8:07 am
this could make a difference with my peeps. bernie sanders campaign believes this thing is rigged since the beginning with hillary clinton with the debate schedule and everything else. is this a problem? >> it is. it confirms the central intuition why the centralest movement was to the left and nationalist movement captured the political party on the right and that's remote unaccountable elites in places like new york and washington are changing the country behind the country's back. and when you have 19,000 e-mails coming out that show that that's exactly what was happening, it doesn't help and sanders is now out of the game. i think in a weird way what it helps is the remaining extremist movement remaining in power and the trump campaign but now can go to people again and again and play to people's fears and take the true intuition, which is
8:08 am
true, and leverage it to start making a bunch of false and very dangerous and frankly unconstitutional visions appealing to people. >> and trump made that argument explicitly in cleveland, which is to say the system is rigged for the people in charge like hillary clinton and bernie sanders makes that argument. amy, between the two conventions a time to take a deep breath, pause, figure out where we are. we got through cleveland. i want to read a tweet from nate silver. he writes, don't think people are really grasping how plausible it is that trump could become president. it's a close election right now. you put stock in that? >> i absolutely do. you see a lot of polling showing voters are viewing this election as the lesser of two evils. it depends who you like better or like least in terms of going to the voting booth. i want to go back to the point about the dnc with the wikileaks.
8:09 am
it's not just a meta store or narrative but ethics and the democratic party. the dnc are supposed to be neutral and the wikileaks demonstrate that might not have been the case going all the way to the top, and there's early reporting that wikileaks may have already claimed it's first scalp with debbie schultz being taken off the speaker list. >> you had donald trump invoking bernie sanders, i'm just saying the things bernie sanders said about hillary clinton. >> this is this feeling, i get to travel the country a lot, and there is this weird feeling growing over the years of people feeling powerless because a lot of economic shifts and that feeling is accompanied by a feeling there is a conspiracy somewhere causing this in my life. it really doesn't help when that proves true. >> and the message they are both delivering, bernie sanders and donald trump that there is a rigged system is impactful for people in that position.
8:10 am
trump even just this morning tweeting about bernie sanders and what is happening. he's very on top of the news cycle in that regard. when you look at the race and what nate silver is tweeting and where things are not necessarily nationally because we see distance between clinton and trump but ohio, i think back to my year in change covering the primaries, at the beginning nobody thought donald trump had a chance. we're now at the beginning of the election season and donald trump said to me, my campaign doesn't start until after the convention. this is it. this is the beginning and let's see over the next month where these polls go in florida and pennsylvania. >> i would add that donald trump has been consistently trying to reach voters by talking about the system being rigged for the past couple months i would think he's not going to get these burner bros who might be angry about what they saw in wikileaks but the disaffected enkhantized voters in ohio. >> unless those people stay home all together.
8:11 am
so coming out of the republican convention, you had quite a week. it began on "morning joe" with paul manafort taking shot at the governor state of ohio and went through to melania's speech and ted cruz moment and on and on. the day after when candidates look to get a big bounce and look to carry on. donald trump held a remarkable press conference with his vice presidential nominee mike pence where he went back into the old theory ted cruz' father proposed by "national enquirer" had something to do with the jfk assassination. >> his father, i don't know his father. i met him once. i think he's a lovely guy. i think he's a lovely guy. all i did is point out the fact that on the cover of "the national enquirer" there was a picture of him and crazy lee harvey oswald having breakfast. >> amy, do you have to feel for mike pence standing back there?
8:12 am
[ laughter ] >> that's what people were tweeting, is that mike pence or crist christie? >> it seems absurd and ridiculous and smart people say this is not how you run a convention, but this is the way he's been carrying on for a year and a month, 15 months. does this matter he's doing this or is this part of his thing. >> this stream of consciousness has been appealing to a lot of voters. they think they are getting an authentic donald trump. i would point it it would be difficult to think someone is a lovely guy you're accusing of being a co-conspirator and for the record, ted cruz' father had nothing to do with it. >> i'm glad we can point that out. donald trump did say the "national enquirer" should win a poll lizzer prize for the coverage. let's talk about where we are now. we're turning the corner to philadelphia and halle it's going to be 108 degrees. >> humidity at 60 million
8:13 am
percent. if you're a hillary clinton supporter, should you be worried she's going to lose? >> it's a real enough possibility as nate silver, the predictions said this week and i think for all the dnc stuff and sanders people holding out and for all the people that think tim kaine's beach body is not good enough -- >> there are those people? >> there are those people. i think we need to focus a little bit because i think we're in the game of trying to be neutral and fair and i've been a journalist for 11 years and played by the rules of neutrality and tearness. th there is on the ballot a problem to be hard. it's not about hillary. this election is supposed to be about hillary. it's not able kaine. it's not about gary johnson and that ugliness is funny and a lot
8:14 am
of scary things and i struggle to figure out how to talk about it. i think we all struggle to figure out how to talk about it in a way that's both honest and fair and provides a fair warning to the people we are speaking to that this is not normal times and this happens to perfectly good countries and we have to be very, very careful in the next three months. >> how much of that is the power of donald trump's message versus the inadequacy of hillary clinton. the fact 30% of the country thinks she's honest and trustworthy. there are a lot of people that say we found the one candidate that couldn't beat donald trump. >> that's right. when you talk about the constitutional order, a lot put hillary clinton in that bucket or on the ballot as somebody challenging the constitutional order. >> do you think they are equal he threats to the contusion of the united states? >> it depends on your perspective. i'm no fan of donald trump. don't get me wrong about that. neither am i fan of hillary
8:15 am
clinton and a lot of voters are in the same place. you talk about even in the democratic party only 40% of democrats would call her trustworthy. >> what's a voter like you do? >> that's a good question and i'm searching for the answer. i'm thinking about writing in my mom. >> do you think they are equally a threat to the constitutional order? >> i think hillary clinton has tendencies that undermine transparency, that undermine rule of law and undermine separation of powers in terms of the executive branch and congressional branch -- >> equally -- >> when she tried to be in charge of health care she did it behind closed doors. there is a long list of bullet points you could use to discuss hillary and i think donald trump is also he has authoritarian tendencies that scare me, as well. we're looking at two not appealing choices. >> what is remarkable is the last time i was at this table somebody didn't know what they were going to vote for in the fall and had concerns for both
8:16 am
candidates and i wonder how that plays out for you, amy. >> gary johnson is polling at 13% as a third party candidate, libertarian, libertarians never have been that popular and ross perot got 18%. >> he's a much higher among consumers of edible marijuana really nailing that vote. >> for yours. stick with me for the highs and lows of the week including first lady michelle obama riding shot gone for "carpool cario key" and mike pence wants to take things slower. good morning. here's a look at your neighborhood forecast. 97 in center city. also temperatures mid 90s for the lehigh valley. allentown at 95. notice that good mix of clouds

♪ ♪ >> anyway, it's been a great convention so far. last night was fantastic. it was huge. [ laughter ] >> did you see melania? [ laughter ] >> she stole the show. [ laughter ] >> literally. [ laughter ] >> jimmy fallon enjoying donald trump's republican convention perhaps more than anyone. when you picture the ceo of a big public company, nick woodman is not necessarily the guy that comes to mind. the 41-year-old california surfer turned entrepreneur is a bored and shorts guy than suits one. it was out in the waves he

8:41 am
really like on the ground. >> it's a double fence basically. >> a double fence. the primary fence main purpose is to stop the vehicle flow from entering into the united states. >> and so this is a secondary? >> yes, the secondary fence is used to defer illegal migrants from entering into the united states. san diego sector is in charge of 60 miles of border with mexico. we have approximately 43 miles of the primary fence. we have stadium lighting across the border. we also have remote video surveillance cameras that monitor our borders 24/7 and record. we have approximately 2,400 border patrol agents in the san diego sector -- >> approximately. >> approximately. >> there are nine sectors of the border patrol along our border with mexico and each has it's own distinct to fog fee, length and challenges. of the 1989 miles of border we share with mexico, some protects
8:42 am
702 miles and agents tell you, where there is a border wall or not, some people try to cross it. look, there is people sticking their heads over there. >> that's it. these are what we call scouters of smugglers. >> so you're sure they are scouting out to do something illegal? >> more than likely they are, yes. >> you see that every day? >> we see that every day. >> whoa, look at this. wow. looking out here, here is your border fence, that's mexico. >> correct. >> and this is the united states. >> correct. one of the biggest threats for us as border patrol agents is that the community on the mexico side is so close to our fence, a lot of the assaults unfortunately for our border -- towards our border patrol agents occur in this area. >> wow. okay, so this point right here is the end of the border fence. >> of the primary fence, yes. so that's mexico on the other side. >> that's mexico? >> yes, correct.
8:43 am
>> u.s., mexico. >> yes. >> and you're telling me you guys can do what you do without the need to extend the fence here? >> correct, correct. as you can see on the top of the mountain, we have two border agents. our agents patrol constantly day and night. >> so far today you guys didn't bring anybody in? >> yes, we have. >> you have? >> a bunch of people? >> it's been between s15 and 20 >> 15 and 20? >> yes. >> that's midday. you can quinn tup l those numbers. agents caught 26,290 people last year trying to cross illegally in the sector. sounds high but thanks to increased enforcement including fencing but more technology and manpower, when you cam pair it to the all time high of almost 630,000 in 1986, apprehensions here and across the country are near all-time lows. in 1986 the border patrol caught over 1.6 million people.
8:44 am
