good morning, victory lap. good morning. victory lap? >> obamacare is no longer living. >> president trump hails his win in the house during his first trip to new york since the inauguration. major hurdles await. why even republicans in the senate are saying it's far from a done deal. weekend washout. new downpours adding to flooding in the midwest. the dangerous storms pushing east today. heavy rains from maryland to massachusetts. tornado threats in the south. al is tracking it all. fresh from her stint as ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy returns set to
7:01 am
kennedy award. she'll be here along with her son jack. what's next for her and does he have a future in politics? and they're almost off. the 143 running of the kentucky derby a day away. as a horse with one eye emerges as a fan favorite. >> you can't help but cheer for him. >> what are his chances? dylan is at church hill downs with all the horses and the hat. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i just want to say it again. i love this time of year. i love the triple down races. >> i don't know how to tell you this, but look at kentucky derby grounds right now.
7:02 am
to let up. >> al? >> how can a mother be a father? it does not look good. rain today. more rain tomorrow. the track at best is going to be muddy but probably sloppy. coverage starts an nbc at 2:30. showers into the afternoon. not a great day, and cool as well. >> you worry about the horses. i'm worried about the hat. >> more of al's derby forecast in a little while. while president trump celebrates, the passing of a revised health care bill in the house. democrats are using that vote as a way to taunt their republican counterparts. the fight now heading to the senate and facing a very uncertain future. we've got coverage beginning with kristen welker at the white house. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. this morning the president is still sell pracelebrating after republicans passed a overall of oba
7:03 am
overnight trump met with the prime minister of australia. he struck a note of confidence it will pass the senate, but there's already a bitter backlash. president trump declaring victory against obamacare in new york. >> premiums will come down. >> we have something that's going to be i think one of the best in the world. >> reporter: a major first step as the president fights to close the biggest deal yet. bringing back to life one of his key campaign pledges. >> the bill is passed. >> reporter: the house passing their version of a health care overhaul by a slim margin. the on jigs from democrat fierce. democrats singing and waving good-bye to republicans. the taunts suggesting the bill will cost republican seats in the 2018 midterm elections and outside? vice president biden lashing out on twitter calling it a day of
7:04 am
millions of americans will lose coverage. what's in the bill? it keeps two popular provisions intact. children can stay on their parent's plan until the age of 26 and caps on coverage are still prohibited. the big changes? the bill scrapped the corner stone of obama care, the individual mandates meaning you are no longer required to buy health insurance. it allows states to opt out of providing essential health benefits like maternity live and mental health services and it changes the way with people with preexisting can conditions are covered providing $8 billion in federal funds to lower costs if states choose to charge more for their conditions. republicans say it will lower the cost of health care and allow people to choose the plans they want. >> the winners are younger, healthier, and higher income people. >> reporter: and the losers? according to the nation's largest group of doctors in more than ten health organizations, older or sick americans.
7:05 am
coverage. it means lower income families will face higher out of pocket costs. there's concern for special needs children. 70% of schools say medicaid helps them pay for therapists. politically the stakes couldn't be higher. for now it's mr. trump's biggest legislative win yesterday. >> how am i doing? i'm president. can you believe it? >> reporter: the powerful senior lobby, the aarp is also weighing in telling nbc news the bill puts older americans at risk of paying more. the administration arguing there will be extra funds set up in every state to help offset any additional costs. as for the battle in the senate, the president can only afford to lose two republicans to pass the bill. senate leaders already saying the entire bill may need to be overhauled. kristen welker at the white house. white house. >> steve is here. this isn't the kentucky derby. this is more like a
7:06 am
>> exactly, and they're at about mile six. the good news for them, they can check this off. they passed this. they did pass the house. here's the bad news. they have a long way to go. the senate, the political considerations of republicans very different. the margin for error thin. if you have to change this bill to get through the senate which is likely, if they're going to pass it, just to make that check mark, to change it, you reconcile the differences. you merge them. that in and of itself is a torturous process. if you make it more moderate, you could have a revolt on the right. get it through the house, got to go through the senate once again. only when you do that would president trump sign it. only then would obamacare really be repealed. t
7:07 am
down. a long path. >> more like a decathlon. >> thank you. let's bring in nicole wallace and josh earnest who served as president obama's press secretary. nicole, let's talk about what was accomplished in the house in the past. getting republicans in the house together on a bill like this was like herding cats. they did pass it. slim margin, but they passed it. how big an accomplishment? >> it's a huge deal, and it's paul ryan's first legislative win on behalf of this president. i think paul ryan knew how to be paul ryan with hillary clinton. i think he struggled in the time of trump. trump voi trump -- paul ryan has a legislative win. he brought his coalition
7:08 am
remains a wild card. josh you were in the obama white house thwhen they passed health care. do you think the republicans will be able to pull it off where they can craft a bill in the senate that can get it through the house as well? where ultimately the law is changed? >> i think republicans are unlikely to take the same kind of risk that house republicans did. they face the same kind of dilemma of either breaking their repeated promise to repeat obamacare or keeping that promise by passing a bill that's wildly unpopular that would raise costs on seniors, on working people, and on people with preexisting conditions. the calculation that house republicans have made is pretty obvious. no sooner had they cast the vote in favor of the bill than they walked off the house of representatives, got on the bus and took it down pennsylvania avenue to the white house where they stood with president trump. it's clear that they're counting on president trump to make the case to the american people. over the objti
7:09 am
over the o.k.s of the american medical association, over the objections of the american nurse's association that what they did was right. that's a big risk when you're talking about the most popular president. >> it's a big risk for some of the members of the house who are going to face difficult reelection battles in swing districts in a year and a half or so. you heard nancy pelosi say they're going to walk the plank on that. and the ads that the democratic party is already starting to put together will make them glow in the dark. what's the impact in the races? >> in fairness, obamacare wasn't that popular until republicans started talking about taking it away. even long term republicans, i talked to someone who said once someone have something, it's impossible to take it from them, particularly when it's their health care. we talk about the politics. this is people's lives and why there are so many passions. it would be unfair to the republicans and unfair to
7:10 am
was perfect. in private even democrats, even the president of the united states was talking to this new administration about how to fix and improve obamacare if there was a transition. the greatest opportunity for the white house is to make the fixes. i think that's what's going to happen. the senate will probably look at some fixes, some efficiencies, but i don't think the senate will produce a bill that's as extreme as what came out of the house. >> members of congress are saying we can come back and said we voted to repeal and replace. >> that's popular among a sliver of movement conservatives. this is about people's lives. >> thank you both. following that health care vote, president trump came to new york city. it's his first trip to his hometown since the inauguration. he didn't stay in manhattan very long. opting to stay in new jersey. peter alexander has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:11 am
there in new york city. now he's up in his summer home in bedman. he was greeted by a crowd of prothe tepr proteste protesters. president bathci whereilfa rt dla gala with the australian prime minister. >> i love australia. they have a fantastic relationship. >> reporter: mr. trump down playing a testy phone call in january. over whether the u.s. would honor a past agreement to take in hundreds of refugees living in australia. >> we had a very nice -- a little testy. but that's okay. >> reporter: the president also raising eyebrows raising australia's universal health care system. just hours after the house took the first stem to dismantle obamacare. >> we have a failing health care. i shouldn't say this to you. you have better health care than we do.
7:12 am
protesters. >> we will be here for the next three and a half years to make sure that he does as little damage as possible. >> reporter: instead of overnighting at trump tower, mr. trump stay can go at his exclusive golf club in new jersey an hour away. with his mar-a-lago property in palm beach preparing to close for the season, president trump is expected to make this his summer destination. but his next stop later this month, the middle east and europe. >> my first foreign trip as president of the united states will be to saudi arabia, then israel, and then to a place that my cardinals love very much, rome. >> reporter: after that a highly anticipated meeting with pope francis who candidate trump once dismissed as disgraceful for the critical comments over mr. trump's proposed border wall. also the state department is coming under fire after the offi
7:13 am
retweeted a post by ivanka trump touting her new book. critics say it's the trumps promoting family business. the retweet was later deleted. the satate department is not commenting. meanwhile, president obama has largely stayed out of the spotlight since leaving office. he is now weighing in on the heated presidential race in france. a runoff is days away. being called one of the most consequential votes in the country's history. it's big implications for the world. richard engel is in paris for us. >> reporter: good morning. this election is seen very much as a test for all of europe, and the it is unusual for a former president or a current president to weigh in on a foreign election. particularly a european election. but president obama has done that endorsing one of the candidates. it's a sign of how much is
7:14 am
stake. this is a campaign marked with polar opposites. hitting the young centrist banker macron against the far right marine le pen. >> it's frightening, and a lot of fear. >> reporter: at stake, the future of france as a member of the european union and government policies about immigration and even the nation's 5 million muslim citizens. the centrist candidate is being endorsed by former president obama. >> the french election is very important. he is committed to a better future for the french people. he appeals to people's hopes. and not their fears. long live france. >> reporter: the polls predict macron will win, there's worry that hackers could influence the vote. there's anxiety over terrorism. france has been shaken by a number of attacks in the last
7:15 am
on the eve of the first round of the elections here two weeks ago. the tensions between macron and his rival le pen have been clear for all of france and all the world to see. they squared off in a blistering televised debate. macron calling le pen the high priest esz of fear for her stances. tempers are flaring among voters. le pen was pelted with eggs yesterday, but she has support too. promises a surprise when the polls ep on sunday. president obama's endorsement could have an impact here. he remains extremely popular in france. le pen, however, and her supporters say they've been inspired by president trump. back to you. >> richard, thank you. it was a really scary moment during a major league baseball game in san diego on thursday. this happened in the ninth inning when the padres

lost control of his bat. it flew into the stands. it hit a woman and her husband. they were treated by medical personnel. eventually the woman managed to walk up the stairs. the couple was taken to the hospital. stadium officials say they injuries do not appear to be serious. now to a story with some gin drinkers seeing double. one gin is being recalled because some bottles contain nearly double the alcohol content than what's listed on the label. the bottles had 7: 77 % alcohol. a batch of the gin was bottled before it was correctly diluted. the affected products were sold only in canada. >> that could creep up on you quickly. >> 77 % alcohol? >> first check of the weather. actually, it's kind of your second. >> that's true. unfortunately, we have a lot of rough

7:42 am
didn't have to? >> jack was that chose president obama. i was in japan. but i'm thrilled with the choice, and i think there are many kinds of courage, and he demonstrated more than one of those. and i think that certainly -- >> right. well, in 2008 i was inspired by president obama's vision for america and all the promises he laid out for our country. and this award really recognizes that he made tough choices over the last eight years to execute on the vision to give people health care, to get serious about climate change, and to reach out to international partners and really improve america's standing in the world. i think we're seeing today it's pretty easy to criticize without offering solutions and president obama did not do that. he had the courage to govern responsibly. >> you're 22? >> 24. >> graduated from yale? >> yes. >> about to go to high school at harvard? >> yes. >> people are going to get to know you. you studied your grandfather and
7:43 am
his legacy quite a bit. w back at his life and career? >> my favorite speech of his is the one he gave at rice university explaining why we should go to the moon. in that speech he said that great challenges are actually great opportunities. and so i think that's really important to remember today when for my generation when it seems like things couldn't be any worse, we're going to inherit a world that has a lot of unsolved problems, it's important to remember those are opportunities and that we can rise to the occasion if we choose good leadership. >> do you still think politics is a noble calling and do you think it would attract people of worth? people, the kind of people you would want to serve in public office? >> absolutely i think it's a noble calling. i have great respect for people who really dedicate themselves to public service, and i think that we're seeing now how important it is. more and more young people are willing to do community service, but they don't necessarily see politics as the way to solve problems.

7:45 am
answered the question. >> do you get the questions, jack? everybody expects you to take a certain path. do you feel the pressure on your shoulders? >> i'm inspired by my family's legacy of public service. it's something that is -- i'm proud of. but i'm still trying to make my own way, figure things out, and so stay tuned. i don't know what i'm going to do. >> courage takes many different forms. i want to talk about a form of courage, and i want to put an image on the screen, if i can. that is a bold move, ambassador kennedy for the met gala this monday night. you looked great. >> thank you. >> did it take a little bit of convincing? >> i had to convince everyone else, but you know what? it's interesting. the person who the exhibit is honoring is actually also somebody who was willing to go against the popular grain and do what she thought was right and courageous.
7:46 am
i think that we can look for courage to do what they think is right, and right there. what can i say? >> the event celebrated avaunt guard fashion. jack, your outfit wasn't that outrageous, but you look handsome. >> good look on sunday when you hand out the award. and we'll be thinking later on the month when we mark what would have been your dad's 100th birthday. >> thank you. we should mention m nbc will have special coverage of the award. >> we are back with more of "today" on a friday morning right after this. a friday morn right after this.
