7:02 am
15th, 2018. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with savannah guthrie and hoda kotb, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and welcome to "today." 7:00 a.m. out on the west coast on this friday morning. craig melvin here alongside willie geist. savannah has the morning off. hoda will join us in just a few moments. it was a surreal scene a few moments ago. >> the president of the united states found his way down out of the white house to do an interview on fox news. when he was finished with that, stopped on the driveway there on the north lawn for about 30 minutes and answered questions ranging from russia, from this new i.g. report, to his relationship with north korean leader kim jong-un. >> even as the president spoke, paul manafort was heading into court. this was the scene just a few moments ago. president trump's former campaign chairman across town
7:03 am
walking into a courtroom there. kristen welker was right there at the white house in the thick of it. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. i think it's safe to say in the entire seven or so years i've covered the white house, this has never happened. the president walking out to the north lawn for an interview with fox news. our only warning was a tweet just moments earlier. he stopped and talked to us after that interview. we asked him about all of the big headlines, starting with that i.g. report. the report saying the report exonerates him and he lashed out after revelations of new text messages between agency officials lisa page and peter strzok which show they made disparaging remarks about him. >> they were actually plotting against my election. i mean there was total bias, when you look at peter strzok and what he said about me. when you look at comey and all his moves. it's interesting, it was a pretty good report. and then i say that the i.g. blew it at the very endi. i think that the report yesterday maybe more importantly than anything totally exonerates
7:04 am
me. there was no collusion, there was no obstruction. if you read the report, you'll see that. what you'll really see is you'll see bias against me and millions and tens of millions of my followers. that is really a disgrace. >> reporter: now, in saying the i.g. blew it, the president was referring to the fact that the i.g. report found no political bias. the president was also asked if former fbi director james comey, who is sharply criticized in that report, should be fired. take a listen. >> they just seem like very criminal acts to me. what he did was criminal. what he did was a terrible thing to the people. what he did was so bad in terms of our constitution, in terms of the well-being of our country. what he did was horrible. should he be locked up? let somebody make a determination. >> reporter: and mr. trump was asked about north korea. he said he's going to call north korea soon, adding he had given kim jong-un a phone number to reach him directly. the president answering questions about why he's praising a murderous dictator
7:05 am
whom he once called rocket man. >> i think it's something that could happen, yeah. hey, he's the head of a country, and i mean he's the strong head. don't let anyone think anyone different. he speaks an his people sit up at attention. i want my people to do the same. >> you have spoken so passionately about the circumstances that led to otto warmbier's death. >> yeah. >> in the same breath you're defending now kim jong-un's man rights record. how can you do that? >> you know why? because i don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family. i don't want to see -- excuse me, because i don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family. i want to have a good relationship with north korea. i want to have a good relationship with many other countries. >> reporter: and with the russia probe intensifying, i pressed the president on whether special counsel robert mueller should be suspended. that's something his own attorney, rudy giuliani, called for overnight. >> i think that whole investigation now is -- look,
7:06 am
the problem with the mueller investigation is everybody has got massive conflicts. you have weisman was at hillary clinton's funeral, meaning her party that turned into a funeral. and they were screaming and crying -- they were going crazy. how can you have people like this. so you have -- i call them the 13 angry democrats. you have tremendous animosity. now here's the good news. i did nothing wrong. there was no collusion. there was no obstruction. the i.g. report yesterday went a long way to show that. and i think that the mueller investigation has been totally discredited. >> reporter: and the president was asked about the immigration crisis engulfing his white house. families being separated at the border. >> excuse me, we need a one vote -- we have a one vote edge. we need 60. so we need ten votes. we can't get them from the democrats. wait, wait, you can't do it through an executive order. [ overlapping speakers ] can we do one question -- wait,
7:07 am
one question at the same time. the children, the children can be taken care of quickly, beautifully and immediately. the democrats forced that law upon our nation. i hate it. i hate to see separation of parents and children. the democrats can come to us as they actually are, in all fairness, we are talking to them, and they can change the whole border security. we need a wall. we need border security. we've got to get rid of catch and release. you catch a criminal, you take his name, you release him and he never shows up again, he goes into our society. then we end up getting him in a different way, oftentimes after he's killed somebody. we've got to change our laws. >> reporter: the president finally was asked if he plans to meet with vladimir putin after saying russia should rejoin the g7. the president said he may. the president has no more events on his public schedule today, but at this white house, we are prepared for anything, craig and willie. >> all right, kristen welker there for us at 1600 pennsylvania. thank you.
7:08 am
let's bring in nbc's chuck todd. chuck of course moderator of "meet the press." it was such a wide ranging interview, chuck, we should tell our viewers and listeners to probably go to the inner webs and watch the full thing. >> craig, it was breath taking. >> it was. >> look, it was breath taking in so many ways. he was misleading, outright lies at some point, mischaracterizations, just all sorts of falsehoods. but it tells you something bigger, craig. he's feeling emboldened. he feels more in control of his political party. look at those election results on tuesday. he feels more emboldened now because he feels as if he was at least justified in his firing of comey. he feels more emboldened because he's got another text message from the one fbi agent to use as a sledgehammer. i have to tell you, i think anything is possible in the next few days, in the next few weeks when it comes to rosenstein, mueller.
7:09 am
this president may be willing to test the limits of his constitutional authority. >> chuck, let me pick up right there because we heard rudy giuliani last night and again this morning suggesting that rod rosenstein has a day, meaning today, to redeem himself. what that means exactly, i'm not sure, but they have strongly suggested that rosenstein has the power to shut down the mueller investigation or at least suspendi it. do you suspect that may be coming? >> i don't think you can rule that out again. look at the president today, he's more emboldened than ever. he feels more -- frankly more -- he's got more support on capitol hill than ever. mitch mcconnell now saying it's time for mueller to wrap up the probe. he had been somebody actually that had been supportive of the mueller probe saying leave it alone, let it play itself out. i think the president feels as if he's got enough political cover here in washington to perhaps do something constitutionally as risky as attempting to perhaps either
7:10 am
fire rosenstein or fire mueller. >> you know, it was interesting at one point one of the reporters there asked him about paul manafort. and he said something similar before, that basically barely knew the guy, he worked for the campaign for 40-plus days. he worked for the campaign more than 140 days. paul manafort in a courtroom this morning, chuck, do we think there may be some sort of correlation between manafort being in court and the president becoming unhinged on his lawn? >> it does seem as if one of the things he does -- this feels as if let me flood the zone with a little bit of everything and he flooded the zone. i'll go out there, create a press scrum. they'll ask me ten different issues, a thousand different angles, and i've made a mess of the news cycle today. pay no attention to the fact that paul manafort may be in jail by the close of business today for witness tampering, because that would be an extraordinary moment and advancement in the mueller
7:11 am
investigation. so you can't help but wonder if it's played a role because the president might know already how precarious it is for manafort today in this hearing. >> chuck todd trying to help us make sense of it all, thanks, buddy. we'll see you sunday on "meet the press." chuck will have an exclusive interview with congressman mark sanford in the wake of his loss this week in the south carolina republican primary. there was one thing the president did not talk about this morning. the attorney general of new york filing a major lawsuit against the trump foundation claiming the president and members of his family used the charity as a personal checkbook. >> a scorching new lawsuit against the president. the new york attorney general suing mr. trump and three of his adult children. senior white house advisor ivanka, donald junior and eric, alleging that the trumps used funds from their foundation for personal use. >> the foundation raised $18 million while giving $19 million to charity while virtually having zero expenses. >> has the president or anyone
7:12 am
else used funds from the trump foundation to pay for personal, business or campaign expenses? >> i'm not aware of in iof that taking place. >> for his part, president trump immediately took to twitter, blaming sleazy new york democrats and insisting he won't settle the case. the current attorney general, barbara underwood, is a career government lawyer. >> this is a straightforward case of violation of the laws governing charitable foundations and nonprofit corporations in new york. >> the suit alleges the president spent $10,000 of foundation money on a portrait of himself that hung in one of hi golf clubs. in 2007, mr. trump allegedly used foundation funds to help settle a dispute between the city of palm beach and mr. trump's mar-a-lago resort. though candidate trump boasted about his personal wealth -- >> i don't need anybody's money. i'm really rich. >> the suit says foundation donations were used to boost his campaign, citing an iowa
7:13 am
fund-raiser for veterans that then candidate trump used through funds. $100,000 in grants from the event awarded to groups in the state just days before the iowa caucuses. candidate trump also railed against hillary clinton's family foundation. >> the whole thing is a scam. >> but now it's his own legal troubles that are piling up. the lawsuit is seeking near low $3 million from the trump foundation and calling for it to be dissolved, which the president has vowed to do. another breaking story overnight. a roller coaster ride derailing in daytona beach, florida. the first car coming off the track, injuring riders and leading to emergency rescues. nbc's gabe gutierrez is at the scene with the very latest on that. gabe, good morning. >> craig, good morning. part of this roller coaster is still dangling behind me. six people were rushed to the hospital. two of them were thrown more than 30 feet to the ground. incredibly, no one was killed, but now an investigation is under way to find out what went
7:14 am
wrong. a fun night at a florida amusement park quickly turned into a nightmare. >> two cars from the roller coaster fell off. there's people on the coaster. >> reporter: it happened at the mardi gras fun center in daytona beach on a ride called the sandblaster. the front car of the roller coaster going off the rails, dangling precariously. panicked screams. two riders falling three stories to the ground, another desperately clinging to the ride. >> female's still on the car, but hanging off of it. someone is holding on holding her in. >> it looked like it just flipped upside down like it was part of the ride. >> reporter: rescuers frantically working to get eight more riders down. >> we didn't want anyone else to fall out of the car so they had to be secured and taken out carefully. >> reporter: firefighters used a tower truck to help stranded passengers. >> one on the ground already and there's one in the bucket. >> reporter: in all six were taken to the hospital. >> i have two ambulatory that can ride sitting on the bench.
7:15 am
>> reporter: after an hour, the heart-stopping rescue was over. >> everybody is out of the roller coaster. everybody is down from out here. >> reporter: landon metler was almost on that roller coaster. >> i actually tried to talk my 11-year-old brother into riding it and he didn't want to. >> reporter: she knows they are lucky. >> we are so glad we didn't get on that ride. it was very scary. >> reporter: no word so far from the company that runs the ride. according to a database that tracks roller coasters, this ride was more than 35 years old when it first opened at this location back in 2013. craig and willie. >> gabe for us there in daytona, thank you. let's turn to colorado where police are trying to piece together what caused a deadly shooting in broad daylight at a shopping center outside denver. miguel almaguer has details. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: willie, good morning. this is where those two adults and two children were shot overnight. we learned that one of the kids was pronounced dead at a local hospital. investigators immediately launched a dragnet to find their suspect. he was caught.
7:16 am
what they don't have is a motive. >> we have an active shooter. >> reporter: in broad daylight thursday, this shopping center, home to a dentist office for children, was turned into a shooting gallery. a number of rounds fired, four people hit. >> when officers arrived on scene, they discovered four gunshot victims. two adults, two children. >> reporter: one of the victims, a young boy, died overnight in the hospital. his brother and mother, sustained life-threatening injuries. both in critical condition. another adult male unrelated to the family was also shot but is expected to survive. witnesses say the gunman did not appear to be in a rush. >> i heard seven, eight very deliberate shots or what sounded like gunshots. like somebody was taking their time, aiming at whatever they were shooting at. >> reporter: this black toyota
7:17 am
was seen fleeing the area. 90 minutes later, police locating the car and the driver, who they believe is responsible. the gunman not yet identified as police began their search for answers. as investigators work on a motive, police are also trying to line up a photo lineup of the possible suspect. our affiliate, kusa, reports the suspect is 23 years old. back to you guys. >> all right, miguel, thank you very much. hoda will be here in a moment, but first a check of the west coast weather from mr. roker. >> thank you. we're watching tropical storm bud. it's come back out into the ocean right now, 40-mile-per-hour winds moving north at 13 miles per hour. by this evening it will be up and into parts of mexico and making its way into the southwest. that moisture is going to be working its way all the way in and increase bud's moisture, heavy rain moves into southern arizona today right on into tomorrow. it will just continue to stream on up. and then by monday you can see

♪ it makes me that much wiser so thanks for making me a fighter ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> christina good day. we're coming on the air with a major development in the russia investigation. on the ai major development in the russia investigation. president trump's former campaign manager paul manafort is going to jail. manafort was in federal court this morning. the issue, whether he would have to await his trial in jail or remain under house arrest. this follows new obstruction charges last week involving witness tampering and these charges were brought by robert mueller. let's bring williams.
8:53 am
bail was roeskevoked. >> he was under house arrest trying to get that relieved. now he'll be in jail until his trial starts. he faces two trials, the first one in alexandria, virginia. he'll be awaiting trial. that means every day he'll come from the jail, go to the courthouse for his trial and go back. one question here, chuck, is whether this new circumstance may cause him to rethink his decision not to cooperate with mueller's investigators and to fight the charges in court. he faces two trials. will this change his mind? after the trial in virginia he's going to go through the same thing again. the judge's order today comes from washington. so no matter what happens in virginia, even if his acquitted there he still faces trial in
8:54 am
washington and she has ordered him to stay in jail until the trial. that's what it's going to be. now his lawyers can try to get the judge to reconsider, but the odds don't seem very high, chuck. >> in the virginia case, and i understand they're two separate cases, one in northern virginia and one in washington, d.c. it's my understanding the virginia judge is potentially going to rule on whether the charges that were brought by mueller against him there were beyond the scope of the initial rules of the investigation for the special prosecutor. do we expect to get that ruling? >> yesterday but it hasn't happened yet. this is the judge who made the critical remarks about the government. he hasn't yet ruled. we expect him to do so soon. he's had some family issues to deal with, the judge, but i
8:55 am
think it would be a long shot if any of the charges are dismissed in virginia, chuck. >> pete, you brought up the issue. does this change his mind about cooperation. the question is what does the president, how does he react to this? let's go to kristin welker. we're still recovering from the press conference you were in the middle of with the president. the manafort issue came up. he tried to distance himself, misstating how long manafort was on the campaign, misstating the importance of manafort. this is a critical period for the if the's campaign when manafort came on board and essentially saved the republican nomination on donald trump's behalf. will he consider pardons? is this an instigator for him, kristin? >> it could be, chuck, and certainly when you look at the range of pardons he's granted so
8:56 am
far, one of the inferences is he trying to send a signal to martin. the president has pushed back against that but you certainly have to think that is a possibility. chuck, when he was asked about this earlier today during that remarkable scrum on the white house north lawn, he did try to downplay the length of time he served on the campaign calling it a short period of time. but it was a critical period of time, and paul manafort was his campaign chair, so it's increasing difficult to do that. thesident steppin up his attacks agast special counsel mueller particularly in the wake of the doj reported we got yesterday that was sharply critical of former fbi director james comey. the president today pressed on whether he's going to suspend robert mueller. that's something that his attorney rudy giuliani said has happened. he said no and he doesn't have plans to do that, chuck, but
8:57 am
certainly some very sharp words for robert mueller today. and what we are witnessing with paul manafort likely only underscores and gets under his skin that much more. so i would expect we see those attacks just continue, chuck. >> one reminder there, paul manafort was in that infamous trump tower meeting with donald trump jr., the russian lawyer, and you asked the president, you pressed him on that infamous did he give a statement, and all of a sudden the president didn't answer your question, but it was how he didn't answer it. explain. >> i thought it was striking. the president said i don't want to talk about that. and, by the way, li and, by the way, lying to "the new york times" isn't the same. he didn't deny it and essentially said, look, there's no crime in being mistruthful to a news outlet. >> what day at the white house
8:58 am
