trump responded to arizona senator jeff lake's nonendorsement in several tweets calling him weak and ineffective. while trump's opponents from hillary clinton to evan mcmullen responded by pointing to trump's temperament as trump continued his attempt to win minority votes with his first visit to a black church in detroit this weekend. with mike pence adamantly saying the campaign's immigration policy has remained the same despite widespread criticism. >> it begins with building a wall, border security. it begins with enforcing the loss of the country. he's been consistentthon point. >> no, he's not. he had deportation. >> at the center of the national debate. >> he's not been consistent on this issue of what to do with the 11 million to 15 million. >> but there are people in different circumstances in that category, people who are criminal aliens in this country. i think everyone in this country understands. >> pence promised to release his

week, and bernie sanders campaigning solo for hillary clinton for the first tile. he's going to be in new hampshire, which is obviously familiar territory for him. an area where he campaigned very strong and now going out with two different events. he'll be joined by tim kaine later today in new hampshire. meantime, you've got bill clinton, vice president biden, tim kaine, and hillary clinton hitting some of those other battleground states today. >> a lot of crisscrossing. tracie potts who is following. thank you. and coming up on wednesday, nbc news along with iraq and afghanistan veterans of america will host hillary clinton and donald trump for a live televised primetime forum. it will focus exclusively on issues that the next president will have to confront. that's wednesday at p.m. eastern on nbc and also on msnbc. now to china where president obama's attending his final g-208 summit. we get news he met with vladimir putin just this morning.
the discussion came as tensions between the united states and russia reached new heights as president obama prepares for a press conference set to take place in a couple hours. joining us from china is ron allen. anything you can tell us about the president's meeting with putin given their frosty past? >> reporter: that's putting it mildly. we understand they had a meeting on the sidelines of this summit, not a formal one-on-one meeting but they talked. that's important and it lasted about 90 minutes or so. a lot of it was about syria. there have been frantic efforts to try and broker a cease tire to get nid that besieged country and to perhaps even go further and begin talks about a political solution. it's unclear exactly what, if anything, the two leaders agreed to. one thing we know, there are going to be more talks between the secretary of state and foreign minister of russia in the days to come.
so no final announcement. there was a period here where we thought there would be some kind of deal but it apparently didn't come together. president obama has said he's very skeptical about reaching an agreement. from the air, militarily and the president is very concerned about trying to get humanitarian assistance to people who are still there in syria. so it's significant that they talked. it's significant they made progress. this may be the last time putin and president obama meet face to face. that's also significant. this may it be president obama's last turn on the world stage in face to face meetings on the world stage. he's hoping to get a lot done in a short amount of time. >> ron allen there in china. thank you. today, he would have turned 3 years old. but we celebrate his first birthday in heaven with the community that surrounded us with love and support.

life. i couldn't agree more. but i'm also confident about that our faith has lifted us up as we fight pre day to find peace. lane and ella used to say to their mommy and daddy that they loved them up to the sky and down to the grass. so i've taken the liberty as i close by saying lane, ella, we love you up to heaven and down to the grass. happy birthday, buddy. we miss you. >> and with those words this happened, standing in the shape of a heart, 5,000 balloons were released into the sky in memory of that little boy. strength of that family. just ahead, the latest on the escape of a murder suspect from a police interrogation room. but first, bill karins has your labor day forecast. how we looking today? >> hermine for the most part is a glancing blow for a lot of areas on the coast. if you're in nantucket or martha's vineyard, the heavy
