7:02 am
that crash yesterday in indianapolis. >> unbelievable. and he's okay. >> scott dixon, just fine. that's about a quarter of the way into the race. my wife was there at the track. and she said it's one of those things when you see it. the fact he walked away unhurt, amazing. >> that's absolutely amazing. i will tell you what else is amazing, is line for naill horan. he appreciated it. he said the lines around tull the blocks nearby, instain. i understand you just be freezing and soaked through. apparently they are. but you're worth it, my friend. >> more from mr. horan this morning. president trump mark this merm moirl day, dogged by controversies tied to russia here at home. we have full coverage starting at the white house, with nbc's kristen welker.
7:03 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the president was hoping his first foreign trip would help turn the page on the negative headlines on the russia probe. but he's back at the white house and the scrutiny deepening. with his son-in-law at the center of some of the latest revelations. this morning, the president is back on defense. president trump returning to washington from his first foreign trip. and bracing for battle, after "the washington post" reported over the weekend, his son-in-law, jared kushner, tried to set up a back channel for communicating with the russians in december, before the inauguration. kushner is now a focus in the russian investigation by the fbi app a source familiar with the thinking inside the white house, a few people suggested that kushner should lay low for a while. the trump administration on defense. >> it's normal and unacceptable. any way you can communicate with people, particularly organizations not particularly
7:04 am
friendly to us, is a good thing. >> reporter: attorney mark cass wits who will represent the president in the russia proep, was spotted talking to icavanka trump. and mr. trump who stayed off social media on the trip, was back on twitter. it's my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the white house are fabricated lies. other republicans backing him up. >> i don't trust this story as far as i can throw it. >> reporter: on "meet the press," former director of national intelligence, james clapper, had a different take on a back channel. >> i will tell you that, my dashboard warning light was clearly on. that was a the case with all of the us in the intelligence committee. >> reporter: and some democrats pounced on kushner. >> there ought to be a review of his security clearance to find out if he was truthful. >> reporter: after trump was given warm welcomes in saudi arabia and israel, he may have roiled allies in europe,
7:05 am
scolding nato allies for failing to pay their fair share. angela merkel saying america can't the trusted, saying we as yurms must take our destiny into our own hands. as for kushner, it's important to point out that he's not the subject of the investigation. and those familiar with the matter say he's focused on work and is eager to cooperate with any investigation. and despite buzz about him laying low, there's no indication the president shares that view. mr. trump telling "the new york times," jared is doing a great job for the country and has total confidence in him. the president will lay a wreath at arlington national cemetery and delivering remarks. >> kristen, thank you. john harwood is cnbc's editor at large. let's start with the war room idea that the white house is supposedly setting up to combat revelations related to the russia probe.
7:06 am
if you consider that a lot of the revelations seem to be coming from inside the administration, how effective can this war room be? >> well, it's a huge challenge for them because this is not simply an argument between the president and members of the other party. in is an argument or a conflict between the president, his own fbi, his own cia, his own justice department, where there's a special counsel investigating all of these matters involving russia. and i have to say, this report, if true, of jared kushner trying to start a secret back channel using russian facilities, is not normal. it's not usual. there's not really a good explanation for it. we'll have to see if the report proves to be correct. >> you mentioned that "the new york times" has reported that a back channel was proposed to discuss syria and other national security issues. if that's the case, then is there any justifiable reason then why they needed to, you know, use secretly communicate
7:07 am
with the russians or diplomatic facilities without including the pentagon? >> to use russian facilities to do that? no, there isn't. and it raises basic questions of what side jared kushner and the -- his associates within the trump transition were on. and if you look at the results, sheinel sheinelle, of this foreign trip, the strains that kristen mentioned in her piece, between the united states, members of nato, angela merkel, french president macron, that's a principal goal of the russians to weaken the western alliance. you see what the long-term consequences was, but it seems to accomplish what vladimir putin wanted to accomplish. >> mr. kushner wrapped up in the investigation. and reports that the president
7:08 am
was pressuring jim comey to let the investigation go. the president asking his intel chiefs also to push back on the fbi investigation. to you, what picture is emerging? >> it's a picture of a white house and a set of actors within the white house, jared kushner, michael flynn's no longer there, in deep trouble. this is a serious investigation. robert mueller is a very serious person, who takes the concerns of the intelligence committee seriously. i'm not sure a war room of operatives in the white house is adequate to the task. i this i they have big problems. this happens at a time when they're entire legislative agenda is struggling. they don't have a tax plan yet. the health care plan is nowhere to pass the house, extremely unpopular. the senate hasn't moved yet. that's why you see the president lashing out at the fake news media and accusing people of making up stories, which journalists are not making up
7:09 am
the stories. it's because he feels the heat. and it's pretty intense. >> cnbc's john harwood. john, thank you. >> you bet. also this morning, north korea is facing condemnation of another missile test. the test happening today. blake mccoy has more. >> reporter: the latest test shows a bold north korea. defying repeated warnings from the u.s. and its allies. it comes as we see new images of kim jong-un that were released over the weekend. with tensions already high in the region, north korea launched another missile. its third test in three weeks. the latest, according to official, a short-range ballistic missile, flying for 6 minutes and 250 miles before crashing into the sea of japan. the japanese prime minister vowing to take action. over the weekend, these images
7:10 am
show leader kim jong-un overseeing military exercises. the isolated country and its nuclear ambition, is seen as one of the biggest security challenges facing the trump administration. >> a conflict in north korea, john, would probably be the worst kind of fighting in most people's lifetimes. >> reporter: this morning, u.s. officials are working with allies to gather information and plot their next move. this morning, with japan and south korea vowing action, the u.s. says it will back the allies. what the action or response will be remains to be seen. craig and sheinelle? >> blake, thank you. new arrests linked to last week's terror attack in great britain. this, as ariana grande speaks out. lucy kavanaugh is in manchester.
7:11 am
>> reporter: this is a fast-moving investigation. authorities making another arrest. a 23-year-old man in custody, on suspicion of terrorism-related offenses. bringing the total number of people in custody to 14. this weekend, more raids and more arrests. a manhunt that shows no signs of slowing down, as a suspected network behind the manchester bomber is rounded up. 1,000 investigators working around the clock. and it seems to be paying off. the threat level lowers from critical to severe, even as armed patrols remain deployed in the lodge weekend. authorities releasing hee ining images of the suicide bomber. they located the apartment where they believe he built the bomb before heading to day rena to commit last monday's massacre. 22 lives cut short, honored on sunday at the great manchester
7:12 am
run. [ applause ] there was applause and cheers forresponders, too. 40,000 people taking to the streets, running for different causes, united in their defiance. >> we thought coming here. we want to show them that terrorists won't win. >> it's our first time. >> your first time. are you excited? >> reporter: pop singer ariana grande, also defiant. pledging to return to manchester for a benefit concert to help the victims. this emotional letter to graend telling the pop star, you're no more responsible for an insane coward than you would be for a devastating natural disaster. the same dad sending this statement to the "today" show. >> we're hungry for inspiration.
7:13 am
maybe the our rhetoric was less hateful than those cowards who recruit to blow up children, we can change the world. >> reporter: and so many stories of inspiration at yesterday's run. and also here at the memorial. people continuing to pour in at this holiday weekend, to leave messages of love and support. a church band was playing a tribute earlier. the folks in manchester here are presenting a united front in the face of terror. craig? sheinel sheinelle? >> that memorial is massive there. a tragic accident tied to the holiday celebrations is under investigation. an elite navy s.e.a.l. felt to his death when his parachute failed to open at a demonstration over the hudson here in new york. morgan radford has more on that. >> reporter: major cities across the country are honoring memorial day weekend with fleet week. where active service members go into cities and hold
7:14 am
celebrations like air shows. one of the celebrations in jersey city turned deadly when a member of an elite parachute squad lost his life. on this memorial day weekend, tragedy for the u.s. navy. a parachutist killed after crashing into the water during a fleet week celebration in jersey city. navy officials say the parachute malfunctioned and failed to open properly. this video shows the yellow cloth floating into a nearby parking lot. >> it's going to be 70 green. party one fall. parachute down. >> reporter: witnesses telling nbc news, the man fell from the sky with his parachute on. but began spiraling downward. >> he landed in the water adjacent to liberty state park. he was reprieved immediately by u.s. coast guard personnel and the jersey city fire department marine unit. >> reporter: the man was taken to jersey city medical center where he was pronounced dead. the fall happening during a
