next week, it starts spreading out a little bit. but this is too close to the east coast, for it not to have some impact, in the form of wind and coastal effects. but it also has the potential of coming close to the coast, of course we'll keep you updated as we get close to that. >> the national transportation safety board is holding a news conference right now with new details about yesterday's train crash in hoboken. we have just learned that the ntsb did interview the engineer of the crash today. we'll pass along any new information. to decision 2016 and a twitter war that began at 3:00 this morning. that's when republican candidate donald trump tweeted quote, did crooked hillary help disgusting alicia m. become a citizen so

it feels a lot like the period after the convention when he picked that fight with the khan family and you saw his poll numbers drop. well, guess what, his poll numbers dropping again today in the wake of that first debate. of course that's when this all started, we're seeing that in key battle ground states likes florida, new hampshire and a new poll out today shows clinton up six points. some are saying that trump is playing into clinton's hands, she threw out the bait and he took the bait and now she's just running with it. she slammed donald trump for picking this twitter fight with alicia machado overnight, saying he's temperaturementally unfit. he's showing no steins of backing down, the question is it really going to hurt him significantly in the polls and is there time for him to
recover? of course we have a second debate coming up in a matter of days. >> thanks for that. we appreciate your insights. >> thank you, thanks for having me. great to hear you in my ear. lots of anticipation for "saturday night live's" season premier this weekend right here on nbc with act trisz margo robby as host. >> we're all anxious to see what the show's got in store. take a look. >> and from the looks of it. the show promises to deliver some big -- indicate mckinnon will assume the role of hillary clinton, you can watch "snl" right here after nbc 10 news at 1:00. >> for more on the presidential race, check out decision 2016 on the nbc decision 2016 app.

from the train's black box recorders, but one of the devices is proving difficult to extract from the record. >> reporter: good stay from hoboken where the investigation is very much now centered on what the engineer saw and knew and what he did as that train came barreling into hoboken station yesterday afternoon. one person killed more than 100 people injured. the engineer is 48 years old. his name is tommy gallagher, he talked to police last night at the hospital before being released. the ntsb investigators hoping to find out what happened inside that cab, did he lose situational awareness, was there a medical event, was there a catalyst of some sort to make the train go speeding into hoboken station. stay with nbc 10 for the very latest on the ntsb's investigation. nbc nightly news will have a look at today's developments from the new jersey transit train crash. that's coming up at 6:30.

imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!"
