7:02 am
today's meeting comes after the president acknowledged just 24 hours ago, that the kremlin meddled in the 2016 u.s. election. but then adding, nobody really knows for sure. we got it all covered beginning with peter alexander in hamburg. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt and savannah, good morning to you. presidents trump and putin have seen each other, greeting each other with a handshake a short time ago. but the substantive meeting, that's still to come. the president this morning, tweeting that he's looking forward to it. saying there is much to discuss. president trump greeting german host angela merkel, braising her as leaders met in hamburg. but stealing the show, president trump's and putin's closed-door session. the spy master o
7:03 am
an official familiar with the meeting telling nbc news, there will likely only be six people in the room. the presidents, secretary of state rex tillerson, his russian counterpart and a pair of translaters. tillerson describing the u.s./russia relationship attal all time throw. an investigation into russian interference in the election. and the president refusing to admit russia's role. >> i think it was russia. but i think it was probably people and/or runs and i see nothing wrong with that statement. nobody really knows. nobody really knows for sure. >> reporter: a growing number of democrats are pressing the president to confront putin about moscow's meddling, sending this letter. on the agenda, possible areas of cooperation, like fighting isis. and more fraught pressure
7:04 am
and north korea. just days after dismissing beijing's willingness to help, here, more optimistic as he's never giving up on china's president. anti-capitalist protesters clashing with police in riot gear. smoke bombs and water canons, dispersing the crowd. also on-tap, a meeting with mexico's president, their first meeting since the election. those thorny issues certain to be a topic of conversation between the two men today. back in hamburg, you can hear police helicopters overhead. we heard flash-bangs, more than a dozen of them. more protests, after

7:06 am
richard engel is in germany with that part of the story. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. president trump will have to work hard to avoid falling into any traps. president putin is expected to come into this meeting well-prepared and to try to stage manager it so he looks like the stronger leader. in style and demeanor, presidents trump and putin couldn't be more different. while trump wearing his emotions on his twitter feed, butputin h the ultimate poker face. and russians who try to stand up to putin say trump is being played. >> he's playing into putin's hands. >> reporter: gary cakasparov sa putin is no strategist. but understands power. >> he's a dictator.
7:07 am
dictators don't play chess. he's playing a poker player. he's a cardplayer. a gambler. >> reporter: a gambler who focuses on his opponents' weaknesses. he has gone out of his way to flatter trump. critics say putin's russia is mostly a mafia state and president trump should freet tr as one. this activist was poison eed twice. he blames the kremlin. do you think a closer relationship between president trump and putin puts activists like you in greater danger? >> the only thing we ask of colleagues and political leaders is that they don't help mr. putin. first of all, by ltreating him s a respected partner on the world stage. >> reporter: and putin, the lifetime intelligence agent, has never appeared to like
7:08 am
president trump, which is why so many wonder what he's up to. analysts say this meeting could be a win-win for vladimir putin. if nothing comes out of it, putin can say that trump is weak, that he's hamstrung by domestic politics. and if trump wants to make a deal on almost anything, putin can say the u.s. had to come to the kremlin for help. matt? savannah? back to you. >> richard engel, thank you. richard will have more on msnbc's on assignment atted: e9 eastern time. let me bring in jeremy bash and michael mcfaul who served as ambassador during the obama administration. is it essential, if president trump wants to say this meeting is a success, is it essential that he confront vladimir putin on meddling in the u.s. election? >> absolutely. he has to go in with a strong message and say, we know what you did last summer.
7:09 am
it was unwelcome and you have to cut it out. >> ambassador mcfaul, by his comments the last couple of months and even yesterday, he said, yes, i think it was russia, but nobody really knows for sure, hasn't president trump boxed himself in? hasn't he given vladimir putin the perfect response to any accusations? >> they've already reacted to those comments, in the kremlin. one of his spokesperson said, we agree with president trump, that it is not clear who did this. and maybe other countries were involved. that was a very inopportune moment to say that, precisely because i agree with jeremy, if he wants to win putin's respect, he has to be tough with him. he has to say, i know what you do. when i'm president, you're not going to do it again. >> ambassador, you've been in the room many times with meetings with putin. >> we were in with obama and putin. >> i wasn't in the room. you
7:10 am
what is it like? is he a poker player? a chess player? what is trump walking into? >> he's been doing this for 17 years. our president, this is his fourth meeting with an american president. he always comes prepared. he always does his homework. he has an agenda. he does his psychological work about his -- he's a kgb operative. he used to do this for a living. he's going to come in with a game plan. my suspicion is his game plan will be simple. donald -- maybe he won't say donald. but he'll say, president trump, you and i can do great things if we work together because we think the same thing. now, the fake news people, the deep state, heeds goi's going t those phrases. they're our enemy. you and i can unite to do something together. >> i want to go back to something you slipped in there. he said vladimir putin wil
7:11 am
president trump goes right at him and say i know you meddled. if he doesn't bring that up in a direct term, vladimir putin will sense weakness. >> think about the converse. had the americans or the chinese done this in russian elections, how do you think vladimir putin would react to that? he thinks he needs to push back. and make no mistake, putin knows what he did in our election. for trump to not bring it up, that's a sign of weakness. >> there's a lot of topics. syria, isis, north korea and the threat they pose. what would be a headline, jeremy, coming out of the meeting that would show there's a possibility of cooperation between our countries moving forward? >> there can be conversation about deconflicting the skies of syria. i think the president has to go in there saying don't continue to prop up the assad regime. we have counterterrorism operations
7:12 am
the we need you to stop in the middle east and ukraine and europe. >> we're looking at the live picture. this is angela merkel in the summit room. we saw vladimir putin, a few moments ago, president trump will be along, as well. according to white house aides, the president doesn't have a set a agenda. maybe he is not telling us. would it be smart to go in there and wing it? >> no. putin is not going to wing it. i'll give you a concrete example. i fully expect putin to explain all the bad things that president obama did. in the first meeting that president obama had with putin, he spent the first hour complaining and explaining about the mistakes. and he's going to want trump to react to that. president trump needs to know what his response is. when putin says the sanctions they put in place, they were illegal. president trump, you should lift them. he's got to have a response.
7:13 am
>> real quickly, jeremy. these two guys have something in common. a few things in common. one of the things they have in common, on occasion, they both play fast and loose with the truth. what happens if after this meeting, president trump comes out and says, i confronted him on the election meddling. and putin goes home and talks to his own people and his own press and says, never happened? >> there's no way to know what happens unless somebody takes detailed notes. we may never know. i think the president really missed a layup yesterday. he was asked by hallie jackson, yes or no, did the russians meddle? he could have put that one to bed and he did not. >> wish you could stick around longer. thank you very much. >> appreciate it. now, to a scary scene on a delta flight. this happened thursday night after taking off from seattle. a first class passenger allege think assaulted a flight attendant and forced the beijing-bound plane to turn around. miguel
7:14 am
for us. hi, miguel. good morning. >> reporter: initial reports that the passenger tried to storm the cockpit are untrue. this is a serious situation. one flight attendant and a passenger were injured when another passenger got out of hand in the air. tense moments thursday, after an unruly first class passenger forced a delta airlines flight headed to beijing, to return to seattle-tacoma airport. a man aboard delta flight 129 assaulted a flight attendant. several passengers then helped restrain the alleged attacker until the plane landed back in seattle. sources tell nbc news, plastic handcuffs or a device like zip ties, were used to restrain the passenger. with the incident creating frustration and rattling
