7:03 am
one-point advantage, 46 to 45. as we mention, a lot to get to with our decision 2016 team and we'll start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> good morning. donald trump, the brash showman, trying to build the drama up this morning, promising that big announcement at his campaign event that begins really right now, fittingly held at his brand new washington, d.c., hotel on the week of its opening. still what's unclear is whether he will publicly t born in the u.s. trump this morning saying he wants to, quote, keep the suspense going after repeatedly refusing to repudiate his own birther beliefs. with donald trump fanning the flames of the birther movement for years, his campaign overnight trying to put out the fire. 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
7:04 am
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 24 hours earlier refused to say 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's trying to seal his biggest deal yet. >> you better make sure to have wasted a hell of a lot of time, energy, and money. >> reporter: even as trump touts new momentum, a new poll shows 61% of likely voters believe the insurgent outsider is not qualified to be president, but a majority say trump is more transparent than his democratic rival. thursday night in new hampshire the billionaire ditching reporters, arriving before the press plane. >> they alled us and said could
7:05 am
let's get going. >> reporter: 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 are such good kids, but they can take it. >> reporter: hours after donald jr. came under fire for these comments he made about clinton. >> the media has built her up, they've let her slide on every indiscrepancy, every slide, every dnc game trying to get bernie sanders out of that. >> reporter: trivialization of the holocaust and gas chambers is never okay. don jr. tells nbc news the remark was not anti-semitic, insisting he was refgt capital punishment. again, we want to show you live pictures right now, where donald trump will be delivering those remarks. it's being touted as a veterans event, but all the focus will be
7:06 am
notably at his new hotel, blocks away from the white house. the white house, for its part, is declining to address the trump campaign's birther statement. this has been viewed as a racially charged insinuation and in the new interview trump boasted support among african-american voters is coming up, quote, like a rocket ship, he says. in fact, he still polls at 6% with african-americans, exactly what mitt romney got four years ago. willie and savannah? >> peter ale washington, thank you. >> hillary clinton was quick to hammer trump over the birther issue last night, as well. she's already had more to say this morning. nbc's kristen welker is in washington. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: willie, good morning. there's more sharp rhetoric as secretary clinton addresses the black women's agenda symposium here in washington, d.c. she's trying to rebound from lagging poll numbers and wasting

7:09 am
your friends, have been debased, demeaned, vilified, called crooked. >> reporter: secretary clinton's also trying to calm jittery democrats who are concerned that the race is tightening, yesterday telling reporters she always expected this to be a close race. once she leaves d.c. she'll head to new york for a fundraising event. on monday she'll campaign in philadelphia and try to rally those all-important millennial voters, some of whom are veering >> hushed tones as secretary clinton speaks behind her there. mark halperin, good morning to you. as recently as yesterday donald trump declined an opportunity to say i know the president was born in america, the birther issue is over for me, but then his campaign went out and said, yes, he believes he's an american citizen. is it going to change between
7:10 am
>> did the interview wednesday night, published yesterday, and his campaign came out, his son came out, his campaign manager have all come out and said donald trump believes the president was born in the united states. now it's up to mr. trump this morning, i think, to say the same thing. this is a position that's not sort of a side bar, as hillary clinton made clear this morning, this is central to how he got on the political map. >> the issue is, it's not ancient history. i can think of a lot of different times during this current campaign when given the opportunity to say that's over, he kind of just dodges the issue, i don't talk about that anymore, or maybe i'll write a book about it. he has been reluctant to just put an end to this. >> tried to have almost a neutral position, but he can't erase the past. hillary clinton made clear she's not going to let him. on friday night she talked about the basket of deplorables, which we all thought would be the dominant story of the week, then the clashes with pneumonia, and
7:11 am
built the next 50 days plus with these events. maybe we're not talking about this by sunday, but today this is the showdown, donald trump will come out and talk and then hillary clinton and her campaign will try to remind people whatever he says today that this is part of his willing si they won't let him forget. >> from donald trump's side, why go through this charade, why shine another light on this issue, something he'd like to put behind him, you would think, even though he's had the record of saying what he's said. why play it this way, have another press conference to talk about it again? >> his advisers have been trying to clear things like immigration that are issue positions which will hurt his chances to reach out to those married suburban voters that he needs to win this election, needs a greater support. let's see how he handles it, but it's a big moment. >> the polls really tightening in battleground states that are important, nationally, are
7:12 am
>> she needs to win this now, this is nothing she can coast through. she has to fight to become president of the united states against an opponent that's narrowed the gap nationally. >> florida, ohio, just to name a couple getting tighter every day. thanks so much. >> thank you. we have a major development this morning involving the samsung galaxy note 7 phones that can unexpectedly catch fire. the consumer product safety commission is issuing a formal government recall saying the devices pose an immediate risk and should not be used. tom costello with the te this this morning, tom, good morning. >> hi, savannah, we can't even get our hands on one to demonstrate because they've all been recalled, but a million phones involved in the recall, the government telling customers nationwide return the galaxy note 7s right away. >> reporter: for the biggest 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
7:13 am
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. >> the root problem with lithium 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.
7:14 am
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. meanwhile, a california man has 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. sa on those cases but tells me it really believes the defective batteries are limited only to the note 7, which is now under recall. customers can either exchange their note 7s for a replacement phone or get a full refund. savannah? >> i remember you reporting airlines started asking customers not to turn on the note 7s, don't charge it when you're on the plane. does this change now with the official recall, do you expect the airlines to say don't bring them on at all?
7:15 am
use of these note 7s onboard commercial planes. no longer a voluntary thing, and the fear is that a runaway fire involving lithium ion batteries is extremely dangerous, especially in a closed airline environment. >> all right, tom costello, thank you very much. now to the frightening scene here in new york city on thursday. a man attacked an offduty police detective with a meat cleaver at the height of the evening rush 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. the detective who was hit with the cleaver is now listed in stable condition. also this morning, the house intelligence committee is urging president obama not to pardon former nsa contractor edward snowden.
7:16 am
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 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, as well, and police are investigating. >> scary to watch that. i guess the only comfort, there weren't kids onboard at the time. we turn to dylan now in for al. we're looking at the west. i'm no meteorologist -- >> you're right, absolutely right, it's gorgeous on the west

8:40 am
the baby crib itself has this mesh lining. >> a lot of people don't know about this. they make these mesh liners if it rolls over to the side of the crib and you don't want to suffocate it. make sure to invest in a mesh liner and make sure your baby has that open ventilation inside the crib. >> i hear after you give birth people give you a lot of flowers. you could just throw them away or transform them into something else. >> with the floral theme for the nursery itself. you can press flowers and taking the bouquets that your family and friends give you when you have the baby and drying them out and hanging them upside down and this is a simple wooden plank. we hung the flowers, just with some twine and it's beautiful. it also has a nice floral scent for the baby. >> nice natural scent, ta. instead of the phony tagerances. >> exactly. >> amanda is on our "today" parenting team member and she

8:42 am
spray paint. >> then i see shapes and hex gones and triangle-type shelving is very popular. >> geometric is very popular right now. i love the idea of playing it up for your nursery. bring succulent and with greenery as succulents are easy to keep alive. while you're up late at night breast feeding you don't have to worry about watering the plants. which is nice. >> furniture wise below that i see a nice space saver with a corner changing unit. >> nurseries are usually the smaller room in the house. >> it's very small. >> you need to maximize all the space you can. corner changing table and is so great and comes with a hamper right underneath it because you're constantly changing your baby and it has everything you need. all kinds of compartments and fits right into the corner and amazing for maximizing your space. >> i think this is the crib i
8:43 am
the kid grows. >> baby furniture is very expensive. you have it on your registry already. the great thing about this crib, this is the same crib we used in the other nursery. you can see as an infant crib over here it converts to a toddler crib and then when your baby has outgrown the toddler crib and notice the safety rail here so your toddler doesn't roll out of the bed in the middle of the night like mine does, then you can take it off an older kid, as well. he monito is. but this is more than just getting a picture of your baby. >> this is more than just a baby monitor. this is pretty new on the market. it is not only a video monitor that you can access from your phone, but it tracks your baby's sleep patterns and the movement. it knows how well your baby has been sleeping and it can give you a whole readout on how many times it woke up during the

9:44 am
when my schedule changes... i want something that delivers. ? tresiba? ready ? i can take tresiba? any time of day. so if i miss or delay a dose, i take it when i remember, as long as there's at least 8 hours between doses. once in use, it lasts 8 weeks without refrigeration... twice as long as lantus?, which lasts 4 weeks. tresiba? is used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. don't use tresiba? to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. don't reuse needles. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause dizziness, sweating, confusion, and headache. check your blood sugar. low blood sugar can be serious and may be life-threatening. injection site reactions may occur. tell your doctor about all medicines you take and all your medical conditions. taking tzds with insulins, like tresiba?, may cause serious side effects like heart failure. your insulin dose shouldn't be changed without asking your doctor. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing... fast heartbeat, extreme drowsiness,
