7:05 am
is showing hillary clinton is fortified in her lead over donald trump. but north carolina a critical battleground here with trump and clinton, their responses to this event showing a real clear contrast between the candidates. donald trump in an interview set to air tonight on fox news making unusual pitch to african-american voters. endorsing nationwide stop and frisk policing telling fox, "i would do stop and frisk. i think you have to. we did it in new york. it worked incredibly well. you have to be proactive and, you know, you really help people sort of change their mind automatically." but the controversial practice was ruled unconstitutional in new york. critics calling it racial profiling. in the wake of two fatal shootings of black men in charlotte and tulsa, trump and clinton are weighing in. >> i know i don't have all the
7:06 am
but this is certain. too many people have lost their lives who shouldn't have. >> reporter: trump, speculating about the female police officers involved in the tulsa shooting. >> did she get scared? was she choking? what happened? but maybe people like that, people that choke, people that do that, maybe they can't be doing what they're doing. >> reporter: the real estate mogul appearing with the notorious boxing promoter don king at a black church in ohio. their vote for donald trump, not for donald trump the man, but to knock out the system to help him, to get their rights, you know, to be able to deal with it. >> reporter: king also uttering a racial slur while introducing trump. >> if you are dancing and gliding and sliding [ bleep ] -- i mean negro. >> reporter: donald trump
7:07 am
the campaign. >> reporter: and bucking a report about his foundation. >> the foundation is there. i think it's been doing a good job. i think we put that to sleep by putting out that last report. >> reporter: it is clear deep divisions remain this morning. donald trump still trailing hillary clinton by wide margins among some key minority groups. new this morning, we have evidence that clinton leads our number has it at 71%-18% over donald trump. she also leads among african-american voters. you can see the spread there. 81%-7%. but there are also some significant differences in terms of voters' perceptions of the candidates. asked who has the knowledge and experience to handle the presidency? on that, voters give clinton a 37-point advantage. but trump holds the edge on who's viewed as more honest and
7:08 am
until that first debate. a lot can still change. >> a lot of people are going to be watching that. peter alexander, thank you. let's get more on the state of the race. 47 days to go until election day. donald trump will spend his day at a national gas conference in pennsylvania this morning outlining his plan for energy use. >> hillary clinton is off the trail today but her daughter chelsea is attending events in michigan. if according to our latest seven-point lead in her head-to-head match-up with trump. but if you factor in the green party candidates, that lead is down to one point. >> steve kornacki is here. people talking about the discussion in the battleground states. >> if donald trump is going to win this election simply put right now, i'll show you what it would look like. first of all, everything you see
7:09 am
the states that voted for in 2012. there are some challenges here like north carolina. you got to win all of those. then what you have in grey here, these were blue states. these were obama states. these are the best shot blue states for donald trump right now. let me show you what it means. start in ohio. if you average the polls together in ohio, trump is actually ahead of hillary clinton. down in florida, big electoral battleground there, average poll. it is not a state trump's winning but it is a state where he can win. this is a bit of a surprise. you have a lot of talk from the trump people about pennsylvania but right now it is wisconsin that he's close. he's behind but he's within striking distance. closer than people expect. so again, he's going to have to make up some ground there but if he could get wisconsin, look how close he is starting to get leer. then check out maine. it is a little funny in the
7:10 am
do the vote by congressional district. in this rural congressional district of maine donald trump seems to be running away with it. if you give him that, look how close he is. iowa -- these are both states where he leads in the average. each one is worth six. if you give him iowa, he hits 270. he's at his number. if you give him nevada, he's over 270. here's one terrorist. say clinton takes nevada, trump 270, clinton 268. one final t the votes by congressional district in nebraska. hillary clinton has a chance at winning one of those districts. if that were to happen -- aye-yi-yi. i was saying 269-269.
7:11 am
>> steve, thank you. reminder -- the first presidential debate of the general election coming up on monday. will be moderated by "nbc nightly news" anchor lester holt. 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific, right here on nbc. major new developments this morning into the investigation into those bombing attacks here in new york and new jersey. the fbi trying to find two men who were seen with one of the suitcases carrying one of those devices. as we get a new look at surveillance video of o blasts. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer has the latest. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the suspect ahmad rahami remains hospitalized after suffering several gunshot wounds. he hasn't been medically cleared to face a judge yet, this as the probe into his family deepens. this morning, the wife of bombing suspect ahmad rahami on her way back to the u.s., flying

7:14 am
now to capitol hill and that grilling fate of the ceo of the company that makes epipens. she says she will not drop the prices. nbc's tom costello has more on a pretty heated hearing. >> reporter: you may recall that under pressure, mylan pharmaceuticals recently said it would produce a generic version for $300. not $600. if tt members of congress, the ceo was sorely mistaken. >> reporter: it is a rare witness who can unite both republicans and democrats in anger, but the ceo of the company that makes the epipen walked into a bipartisan firing line. >> you virtually have a monopoly and you've used it to your advantage. but, unfortunately, it's at the expense of people who need it. >> reporter: it didn't matter that heather bresch is the daughter of west virginia senator joe manchin and that
7:15 am
generic epipen. >> by introducing a generic which truly is unprecedented. we cut the price in half. >> it's unprecedented to raise the price by $500. >> reporter: demanding the answer how they could raise the price. mylan says the development costs and middlemen demanding a cut have pushed prices higher -- and it says it'sen pens to schools across the country. but congress isn't buying it. >> what was your salary last year? >> about $18 million. >> about $18 million. sounds like you're doing pretty well on this. >> yet another drug company, mylan, has jacked up the price of a life saving product for no discernible reason. >> reporter: at least 11 states

something that the company lobbied hard for. now criminal investigations have been launched into the company's pricing policies. now to an nbc news exclusive interview. chuck todd sat down with iranian president hassan rowhani who is here in new york for the u.n. general assembly. they talked about the presidential race and the potential for change in u.s.-iranian relations under a new administration. dependent upon the conditions when we get to that point in time. in any fashion, if the future administration of the united states wishes to continue its animosity towards iran, then of course it will receive the appropriate response. but, if it wishes to bring an
7:17 am
respecting the rightful -- the right of the iranian nations wherein it has trampled upon those rights in many instances in the past, then of course it will receive the appropriate response in that scenario as well. >> you can see more of chuck's interview this sunday on "meet the press." al is here. what's got your eye this morning? >> we were talking yesterday, we'd see some torrential rain in parts of minnesota. my gosh, did we get it throughout the upper midwest. minnesota. some areas, as you can see, swamped. this is right around minneapolis. folks just really getting inundated. and the rain continues. in fact, just to the south of minneapolis, they've picked up over 13 inches of rain. reports of roads washed out. a real mess there. it is going to continue today. we've got 4 million folks under flood threat. 8 inches of rain to 12 inches

9:41 am
set. >> might be a problem later. >> yes. just because the stories are very -- all of our stories paint us into a corner. you have to find a way to climb up the wall and across the ceiling and out the door. >> i noticed in that scene, red had his hat on table. you're sitting here with us -- has he like invaded james? >> no. we have the same hairdo. >> you have a massive collection, don't you? >> i'm have enough. just enough. you understand that, al. >> i do. i love my hats. the thing i love about the program -- >> well, we share something in common. >> you're twins, separated at birth. red and little red. >> that's right. we won't go there. but in any event, the thing is you're never -- the stories aren't bound by what we normally think of in episodic television.
9:42 am
much easier to make if it were. but we have never found and equation for the show. there's never been a formula for it. which is -- listen, it's one of the reasons why it's compelling to make, it is one of the reasons why i think it is compelling to watch. and when i first read the pilot, it's the thing that attracted me to it. i saw that show that really the possibilities were limitless and the landscape is limitless. and we' advantage of that as we best can. >> i know that lizzy, going into season four, we can say that lizzy is alive and she is allegedly with her biological father. but then again, we don't know exactly the fit, if he is the biological father. but is it one of those things that you can never really answer to keep "the blacklist" "the blacklist"? >> i think for "the blacklist" to continue, every answer that
9:43 am
and also certain characters on the show. every answer has to pose two more questions. >> wow. >> otherwise, the sort of paradigm for the show sort of fractures. i mean it really -- that's what the show is. the show, in its very premise, the show -- the engine of the show is the sort of enigmatic character. as you sort of chip away at the enigma, if you chip away too much, your show hased that the show is built on. >> i see you as like the master class of life. congratulations on four seasons. >> you did go to school with jfk jr. >> we did. >> when the secret service was there looking after him. true or false, you would love to run up behind him, heckle him, so they would freak out. >> we did. we of course -- now looking back on that story, we may project a little bit more of that freaking
9:44 am
sort of thing by that point. i10:00, 9:00 >> we'll have to do an "after of the show." well, singer nick jonas

9:49 am
scenes. morning, bros. watching the scenes from this movie, there is hazing that is just like -- it's medieval. goes back "game of thrones" kind of stuff. does this exist today? >> the great thing about making this film is it really does kind of pull the curtain away and show some of the real stories. we have a lot of the brothers that were in the movie with us were telling us they through exactly the same experiences. the hazing culture is kind of very private and protected by members of a fraternity. it is not always something that we are aware of, that they are even being hazed or this is part of the process. this film, with the hazing, it is also about brotherhood on many levels and kind of the growth of two young men. >> ben, it is acting.
