7:03 am
still unclear whether he will publicly say that he believes that barack obama was born in the united states. he's refused to say so as recently as this week. he's refused to say so repeatedly over the course of this campaign. he was one of the nation's most prominent birthers. it actually launched him into national politics. his campaign is hoping with its new statement on his belaugh they'll help put this issue to rest. with donald trump fanning the flames of the birther movement for years, h night, trying to put out the fires. the trump team issuing a reversal saying, "mr. trump believes president obama was born in the united states." the statement also crediting trump for a "great service to the president and the country" by getting president obama to release his birth certificate and falsely accusing hillary clinton's 2008 campaign of first raising the issue. notably the statement comes from the campaign, not from trump himself who in a "washington post" interview just 24 hours
7:04 am
president obama was born in the u.s. i'll answer that question at the right time, he said. "i just don't want to answer it yet." with the race tightening, trump is trying to seal his biggest deal yet. >> you better make sure i win on november 8th because i'm going to have wasted a hell of a lot of time, energy and money. >> reporter: even as trump touts new momentum, a new polls shows 61% of likely voters believe the insurgent outsider is not qualified to be president. transparency than his democratic rival. thursday night in new hampshire the billionaire ditching reporters arriving before the press plane. >> they called us and said, could you wait? i said absolutely no. let's get going. >> reporter: in an economic speech, the businessman promising to create 25 million jobs. but offering few specifics. late thursday, trump also standing up for his adult children. >> boy, the press likes to hit them and they're such good kids. but they can take it.
7:05 am
after son donald junior came under fire for these comments he made about clinton. >> the media has built her up, they've let her slide on every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every dnc game trying to get bernie sanders out of the thing. i mean if republicans were doing that, they'd be warming up the gas chamber right now. >> the antidefense nation league demanding an apology. don remark was not antisemitic. he was referring to capital punishment. this morning the white house is declining to comment on the statement but this birther issue was always viewed as a rishlly charged insinuation. in that new interview out this morning, donald trump says that his support among african-american voters has come up "like a rocketship." in fact, his support with african-americans stands at just 6%. exactly what mitt romney got four years ago. >> peter, thank you very much.
7:06 am
controversy. she returned to the campaign trail for the first time since taking a few days off to recover from that pneumonia. nbc's kristen welker is in washington for us. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: willie, good morning to you. with her poll numbers lagging, hillary clinton is aiming to get back on message today but she's also wasting no time pouncing on trump's latest contrs hillary clinton back on the trail and taking aim at donald trump for again refusing to say president obama was born in the united states. >> he still wouldn't say america. when will he stop this ugliness, this bigotry? >> reporter: and clinton's campaign lashing out after the trump campaign released a statement trying to walk back trump's comments. clinton's spokesperson tweeting out overnight, tweet needs to say it himself on camera and admit he was wrong for trying to delegitimatize the country's
7:07 am
>> we need to stop him conclusively in november in an election that sends a message that even he can hear. >> reporter: clinton also poked fun at one of trump's surrogates. >> if you do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks every corner. >> reporter: who warned of taco trucks on every corner if clinton's immigration plan is enacted. >> i personally think a taco truck on every corner sounds absolutely delicious. >> thursday -- president obama -- who also had harsh words for the gop nominee. >> we've seen this anger and vitriol before. we can't let that brand of politics win. >> reporter: clinton resetting her campaign thursday. ? i feel good ?? >> reporter: following three days off the trail after being diagnosed with pneumonia. >> even i had to admit that maybe a few days of rest would do me good. >> reporter: clinton also trying to reverse these damaging optics by touting her strength.
7:08 am
quitting. and i will never give up. >> reporter: and president bill clinton giving her an assist, defending secretary clinton when she was criticized after calling half of trump's supporters deplorable, a statement which hillary clinton retracted herself. >> she did what any grown-up would do. you cannot be in a presidential campaign where you, your family, your friends have been debased, demeaned, vilified crooked. >> reporter: clinton is also trying to reassure jittery democrats who are nervous over those tightening polls yesterday telling reporters she always expected this race to be close. today she will be here in washington, d.c. on monday she heads to philadelphia to court those all-important millennial voters, some of whom are veering toward third party candidates. willie? savannah? >> kristen welker, thanks.
7:09 am
kornacki. the birther issue rearing its head again. but in some ways it never went away because trump has been asked repeatedly over the course of this campaign, do you still have concerns, do you still think maybe president obama is not an american citizen. and he always dodges the question. and now you have the campaign saying, oh, no, he does. i mean what's going on here? is he trying to have it both ways, i guess is the question? >> he has been up until now but i think we've reached the point where he has to say it himself. he's made the point in the past, "other people don't speak for me." i think he will. he risks alienating those who liked him for his posture. >> he has been given an opportunity over and over again as recently i guess as yesterday. >> two reasons. he doesn't want to alienate people who still believe president obama was not born in the united states. the other thing is what is trump's campaign about fundamentally? strength. this would be the biggest admission of being wrong about a very important thing for his i think he just doesn't want to
7:10 am
i think he will. >> you talk about a day of mixed messages from the campaign, kellyanne conway comes out and says, yes, donald trump believes president obama was born in the united states. donald trump says, i'm not going to answer that question right now. i'll answer it when the time is right. later a statement from the campaign said, actually, donald trump should be given credit because he forced president obama to produce that birth certificate. so, what is the answer? will we get clarity on that today from the candidate himself? >> let's be clear on what happened here. when donald trump made that campaign on the birther issue a few years ago and the president donald trump at that moment didn't stop. he kept talking and tweeting for years after the fact saying that he was turning up new information that the certificate the president produced was false. so this narrative they are trying to put out there this was donald trump trying to do some sort of public service -- he was the guy that took something that was sort of happening underground 2008, 2009, 2010,
7:11 am
i'm very curious if he does address this today how exactly he will phrase this. because this is not something that he seems at all happy or eager to do. >> no matter what donald trump says, whether he acknowledges what his staff says on his behalf or not, it is going to be another test for the country and the media what can he get away with. >> well, let's talk about the polls because they're tightening significantly. i think that's the trend in every poll, whether it is a battleground poll or a national poll. you have a lot of democrats who are saying, do we prematurel trump can really win this thing. >> he can win and you are seeing even some republicans who don't like trump at all saying that. some prominent columnists. hillary clinton came out yesterday and was very good. we're not talking much about it because of this birther thing. she came out, i think, after three days of reflection, realizing i can lose this. the only way i can win is i have to fight for it. that is a reality for democrats. watch to see in the next few days is she consistently fighting to win this? because if she doesn't consistently fight to win it, she could lose.
7:12 am
at this point as we look at ohio, florida, iowa, states like that getting very close? >> this is the new dynamic now. the name of the game for trump is you've got to flip blue states. all summer, all general election, he now leads in the average of all polls in florida, ohio, iowa. that's not enough to get him to 270 but he is closer to that number than he has been this entire campaign. >> things getting very interesting again. we'll wait to see what trump says today on the birther issue. guys, thanks so much. a major development this morning to tell you about involving those samsung galaxy note 7 phones that unexpec the consumer product safety commission is now issuing a formal government recall saying the devices pose an immediate risk and should not be used. nbc's tom costello on the story for us this morning. tom, good morning. >> savannah, good morning. we can't even get our hands on one of these to demonstrate because they've all been recalled. over 1 million phones involved in the recall. the government now telling customers nationwide, return
7:13 am
cell phone manufacturer. >> just wanted to post this and share what just happened to my note 7. >> reporter: what began as a big black eye is now an official government recall. roughly 1 million galaxy note 7s in the u.s., 2.5 million worldwide. samsung says it has 92 reports of the phones overheating. dozens of reports of fires. including a garage that burned to the ground in south carolina. and a jeep that was charred and gutted in florida. >> because this product presents such a serious fire hazard, i am urging all consumers, all consumers to take advantage of this recall right away. >> we apologize, especially to those of you who were personally affected by this. and we will work every day to earn back your trust. >> reporter: samsung blames the fires on a defect inside its lithium ion batteries which operate at a very high 4 volts.
7:14 am
ion batteries is potentially a lot of energy is stored inside a tiny little device. >> reporter: samsung says the replacement phones arriving wednesday will come with new batteries made by a different supplier. meanwhile, concern this morning about other samsung models that may also catch fire. in new york, a 6-year-old suffered first degree burns when a samsung core allegedly caught fire. in florida tuesday night, a car gutted by fire after another galaxy phone allegedly exploded. meane, filed suit claiming he suffered second and third degree burns on his leg when his s7 edge caught fire. the cpsc says it is now looking into those reports as well. samsung declining to comment on but it does say it believes the defective batteries are in the note 7 which are now on recall. customers can either exchange the note 7s for replacement or get a full refund. >> tom, the airlines had asked customers don't turn on the
7:15 am
if you are on a plane. does that change now that there is an official recall? could it be airlines say don't bring them on at all? >> yeah, i think so. the faa now expected to ban the use of the note 7 onboard commercial planes. that's no longer voluntary. banning the use of them. the fear is that a run-away fire involving batteries onboard a plane is just extremely dangerous. >> terrifying to even contemplate. tom costello, thank you so much. now to the frightening scene here in new york city on thursday. a man attacked an off-du cleaver. it happened near penn station at the height of the evening rush hour. police say officers confronted the man when they saw him trying to remove a boot from a car he apparently was living in. this video was taken moments before police confronted the 32-year-old. when they approached him, he pulled out an 11-inch meat cleaver and ran. after a brief chase, the suspect hit one detective in the face with the cleaver. three police officers opened fire wounding him. he is in critical condition.
7:16 am
serious condition. also this morning, the house intelligence committee is urging president obama not to pardon former nsa contractor edward snowden. a committee report accuses snowden of leaking information that caused tremendous damage to u.s. national security. the report says snowden is not a whistle-blower as he claims. a bipartisan letter sent to the president says that snowden's claim that he disclosed information to protect americans is "undercut by his actions." snowden's attorney denounces that report and calls his client a genuine american hero. a school bus driver in new jersey is out of a job this morning after dramatic video surfaced showing the driver swerving across the yellow line into the wrong lane to get ahead of a slower moving fedex truck. the bus company said it fired the driver wednesday night after seeing the video. there were no students on board at the time. fedex says it is looking into the incident and police are
7:17 am
