>> chicken nuggets breaded in captain crunch. >> it is called the nugget spot. >> joe's band is playing at 84th and columbus. sorry about that everybody. stephanie picks up the coverage right now. >> when i see those nuggets i think munchies. we have breaking news. a terrifying explosion at a maryland apartment building. >> waiting and nobody comes and says anything to us. >> dozens of people injured. up to seven people now missing. the big question, what set it off? we'll take you live in the latest. donald trump with a new hit on hillary clinton over isis. i would say the cofounder would be crooked hillary
clinton. cofounder, crooked hillary clinton. >> and clinton goes after him on his second amendment comments. >> yesterday we witnessed the latest in a long line of casual comments that crossed the line. >> and why exactly was mar mark foley seated right behind donald trump? you to see this, up, up and taken away. new details on a man that climbed trump tower with sungs cups, his bizarre reason for why he did it. >> i would not risk my life pursuing it. >> we'll begin with that breaking news in maryland. right now as many as seven people are missing.
nbc is live in silver springs. what happened? >> reporter: there is very clearly an explosion here. we see the effects of that behind me. you can see bits of balcony and bits of door frames. it was felt over a mile away over the fire department. they got here and rescued over 30 people. more than 30 people are in the hospital right now. there are five to seven missing. you can see a lot of recovery work going on behind me. it is smoldering. we there is a fire department dog on the scene. >> do we know anything more about thoesz individuals? i'm assuming they were residents. >> we don't know a whole lot about the cause of the
explosion. they haven't said something. a resident did tell us he had smelled fumes earlier in the week. all of the units have stove top and gas heating. that's an indication it could be gas. nothing official from authorities. i mentioned 30 people taking the hospital. a lot of people have been evacuated here. when you take a look at this building behind me you basically see a three story apartment. it is really that middle row house, that middle apartment that has gone completely collapsed. it has fallen through nothing there but smoldering embers. >> firefighters have their work cut out for them. thanks hans. we have to take a turn to politics. donald trump trying to turn the table. >> everybody came to my defense because there was nothing said wrong. i'm talking about the power of
the voter. nothing was said wrong and only the haters try todied to grab o that one. >> haters going hate. donald trump not backing down from that one. i want to begin with hallie jacks jackson. mr. trump spoke more than 30 minutes this morning. he is not backing down. what else did he say? >> reporter: plenty. it was a substantial interview as far as time for cnb. >> chip: let's start with trump accusing president obama of being the founder of isis. four times he doubled down on this. i want you to listen. >> do you think it's appropriate to call the sitting president of the yiegts the founder of a terrorist organization that wants to kill americans?
>> he was the founder of isis, absolutely. he gets the most valuable player award, him and hillary. >> reporter: he is not backing away from the controversy surrounding the gold star controversy either. when asked if he thought it was a mistake trump said you have to define what a mistake is. is he going to pivot? absolutely not. he says he is not going to change. he said either it is going to work or i'm going to take a nice long vacation after it over. >> earlier this week he was slamming hillary clinton for having the father of the orlando shooter sitting behind at a rally. the clinton campaign said he was not invited but last night former disgraced congressman mark foley seemed to be sitting
in almost the identical seat. it is like circus time here. it seems crazy. >> and you look at the video. i think you guys were playing it here. there is foley posted up as trump was turning around and justuring to the follow -- gesturing to the folk behind him. why was foley there? she a trump support. he spoke with thomas roberts. roberts asked are you a trump support and foley reporting yes, he has been a friend of mine for 30 years and one of my biggest contributors. you saw him there as he was going after sort of the optics of whom sits behind whom at the rallies. >> you have your work cut out for you. we have to turn now to
hillary clinton. she is responding to the second amendment comments. >> words matter, my friends. and if you are running to be president or you are president of the united states, words can have tremendous koconsequences. >> there are more details in the latest e-mail continue ver i. -- controversy. it is a type of pay to play scheme. those seeming to benefit were big money donors to the family's charitable donation. kelly is outside where hillary clinton will lay out her economic plan later today. you have republicans pouncing on this. how is the clinton campaign pushing back? >> the clinton campaign points out that this is a case where there were e-mails that did not
involve secretary clinton directly and the specific conversation going on in these 2009 e-mails, the request for and introduction between the clinton foundation and the secretary, the state department employee, the ambassador, that conversation, that meeting never took place. that's part of what they are saying. we have been talking about e-mail and hillary clinton. this is a different situation. this is not about her private server or all that has gone on with the fbi investigation. it is a separate inquiry and one they have been circling around for a long time. in the years after the clinton's left the white house their foundations doing good works around the globe did raise a lot of money from donors all around the world. when she became secretary of state they wanted to be clear there would be no interaction between that outside entity
belonging to the clinton family and the state department. these e-mails which were related from an official at the foundation calling out to two top officials of hillary clinton. that's connection here. now, as you imagine trump has been having his own troubles. he wanted to shine a light on this issue. he brought it up in the truly trump way with a little sarcasm at his event. let's listen to that. >> how tdo you think hillary would feel if e-mails were never invented? would she be happy? that is like a truth serum. pay for play. you're not allowed to do it. it's illegal. it's illegal. i would imagine other things would be coming down the pike. let's see what happens. >> whether or not hillary clinton was on the e-mails, the buck has got to stop with her. she is the woman in charge.
everyone was hyper sensitive about taking this involvement and she was very clear there wouldn't be a connection between the two. so because we now see there is connectivity, we know she has a trust worthiness doesn't it play into the idea that she is hiding something? >> it certainly is something that conservatives will point to to say there must be more there. that's where the clinton campaign is saying no, there isn't. this is an instance where there was no introduction, that hillary clinton was not involved in the conversations. it may be a case where addition gn al e-mails surface but it does raise the question beingbleo have access to top advisers to hillary clinton. the campaign will push back on this. it plays into what donald trump wants to say, highlighting trust worthiness, is there something
more there? the question that hangs can be damaging in and of itself. >> the question is all that will slow down. the other is no. another throw down every day. >> up next, the trump tower climber, why did he do it? we have new details. plus a shoot out close to the canadian border, this man was planning a suicide attack. how close was he? like peanut butter and jelly. yeah. ham and cheese. cops and robbers. yeah. nachos and karate. ahh. not that one so much. the rest were really good. socks and shoes. ok, ricky... will your business be ready when growth presents itself? our new cocktail bitters were doing well,
but after one tradeshow, we took off. all i could think about was our deadlines racing towards us. a loan would take too long. we needed money, now. my amex card helped me buy the ingredients to fill the orders. opportunities don't wait around, so you have to be ready for them. find out how american express cards and services can help prepare you for growth at open.com. and i make dog chow in denver, ca(vcolorado.e's nick one of my fondest memories of khloe is the day we got her. i knew right there she was gonna be a great dog. khloe's a big influence on the family. she loved lincoln from the start. she's his little protector. i trust dog chow to keep khloe healthy because i see the high quality ingredients that go into it. the standards that we follow are top notch. i trust dog chow enough to feed it to my dog every singlday. one day a rider made a decision.
the decision to ride on and save money. he decided to save money by switching his motorcycle insurance to geico. there's no shame in saving money. ride on, ride proud. geico motorcycle, great rates for great rides. one day, the worlde wonder came together. games. a dog, talked. we're decedent from the mighty wolf. a voice was heard. if you build it, he will come. a girl discovered magic. a revolution began. welcome, to the wonders that happen, everyday. welcome, to it all. comcast.
they dragged him in. luckily tammy is on the ground. we saw this guy scaling the building spider man style. who is he? why did he do it? >> he is a 20-year-old man from virginia. he is identified as steven rigatta. he had several i.d.'s on him when he was picked up by police. he took his parent's car, drove to new york stichcity. as far as why he did this, he made a you tube video that offers a little bit of an explanation. let's go ahead and take a look at the video. >> the reason i climbed your tower was to get your attention. if i thought this via conventional means i would be much less likely to have success because you're a busy man with many responsibilities. >> we know he wanted a one on
one meeting with dt donald trum and he did not get that meeting. >> donald has to be saying something. >> reporter: his camp issued a statement. he said this man performed a ridiculous and danger use stunt. there is damage to the building and he caused unnecessary deployment of new york's finest to protect his safety and the safety of everyone in the building. >> do we know if he will be charged with anything? >> reporter: so far no charges but others have been charged with disorderly conduct and tres pag trespa trespassing. >> thanks. stay on the ground. no scaling the building. all right. up next hillary clinton to tackle trump's economic plan with her very own in detroit. why should voters trust her

she made clear she will tackle it in the first 100 days. today it is an issue republicans and democratics agree on. they agree on the urgency of infrastructure and agreed on how to pay for it and how to run it. there is probably on opportunity to do this on a bipartisan basis. everybody knows that our roads, our bridges, our ports, arts are in deteriorating condition. she talked about 500 billion for infrastructure and it would create a lot of good-paying jobs and improve u.s. competitiveness. i might add that trump's new plan has not one word in it about infrastructure which is inexplicable to me. >> when she was senator here in
the state of new york washington post said it didn't materialize. she does have a trustworthiness issue. how can americans assume she has realistic goals and will achieve them? >> i had the privilege in working in the efforts to vie vit vitalize growth and anybody who saw -- and mideast new yorkers did, the efforts she made over her senate years knows nobody worked more effective tlichlt that's why she was twice elected to the senate and the second time by an overwhelming margin. she focused on middle income
americans. they trusted her and her and they liked it. she was extrade noirly effective. are you in a position to directly do it yourself? the answer is no. you to get the u.s. congress involved but to the degree that anybody could move the needle on this, she was extraordinarily effective. >> you were talking about how important that middle income group is. talk to us about how you see the economy. president obama says the job number is below 5%. as you see it, as hillary clinton sees it, what does the economy really look like? >> her goal, which is so different from trump's is to get middle income, middle-class
incomes moving up again. and middle class incomes haven't yet fully recovered from the financial crisis of 2008. we are seeing hourly average earnings moving up. they have a long way to go to catch up. that's her goal. >> one of the ways you would start to see the incomes move up or manufacturing happen is to work on smart regulation and have companying spending here and creating jobs. does it concern you in any way hillary clinton tied herself so closely to elizabeth warren who is certainly not a friend to wall street but one who talks about corporate fat cats? you have to work with these corporations if you will create the middle income jobs. >> clinton has a long record of working effectively with businesses. if you ask when she was senator from new york or the businesses that worked with her when she was secretary of state they will
all tell you that. in fact, you know that a major effort has been underway for the past few weeks to recruit business leaders, to support secretary clinton's campaign and it's been extraordinarily effective. i would say seriously that among larger businesses at least about 90% of ceo's in this country are opposed to trump and support secretary clinton. if they thought she was going to be a verse to business they think she will be much better for business than trump would be. you have to look at the two plans. look at trump o's plan. what is it about? massive tax cuts for wealthy americans. he wants to cut the corporate tax freight 35% to 15%. it would cost 5 trillion. he wants to cut the highest
income tax rate from 40% to 33%. >> i will interrupt you because after the commercial i'll be speaking to a trump surrogate about that very thick. new reporting, the head of the rnc threatened to pull resources away, a share from the trump team joins me next. nutrition is a word getting thrown around a lot these days. but do you really know what it means? no. the answer is no. because it's complicated and science-y. but with my nutrition mixes, you don't have to worry about the science. you can just put it in your pie hole. mmm peanuts, pecans, cashews. i'll have another helping of science, please! so whether it's energy or heart health you're after, start optimizing your nutrition

>> isis is honoring president obama. he is the founder of isis. he is the founder of isis. he is the founder. he founded isis. i would say the cofounder would be crooked hillary clinton. >> it is time now to bring in national cochair, sam clovis. do you believe president obama founded isis ? >> i think the foreign policy for the last seven and a half years has lead to the creation of the cells around the world. i really do, because of the abandonment because of support of measure imbrotherhood, all of
these have furthered the cause of terrorism and radical islam. >> i would say that's a fair and a reasonable argument to be made that it's about foreign policy. it's not what donald trump is saying. is that not a dangerous thing to say from someone running to be president of the united states? >> i don't think so. i think you have to look at it from the audience perspective. i don't think the audience will have any trouble saying what he is saying. i this the issue is people will get that. they understand what he was trying to say. i don't think anybody looks at the fact that president obama was on the ground organizing meetings or doing any of that. that isn't what was said. the idea is that these policies have lead to a furtherance of the growth of radical islam in
the world. i don't think there is anyone who can dispute that. >> they have the donald trump melt down this week reporting that she is sick of his antics and even threatened to pull funding and focus that rnc funding on senate ballots. do you know that to be the case? >> i'll tell you, sitting in the green room and coming in here and got a communication that that is categorically false. there is no discussion about pulling resources by the rnc. i got that literally seconds before i came in here, stephanie. >> there is something you would probably know. they have said experts and advisers told him to soften his a bit. these are important characteristics. he said, no, i'll become the
next president or i'll take a long vacation. the you think he needs to soften up? i. >> i don't dir if you're running for president of the united states. you have to give people to vote for you. you to have a positive action to fill up that absentee ballot. we have so many things we should be advancing out here. mrs. clinton, i saw the report just before. i was sitting there in utte utter awe. i thought maybe i had been caught in the tornado.
we had been transformed into the wizard of oz. >> i don't want to see you in any red slippers but donald trump says it will get companies, manufacturing here, if he will continue with all of these side games, how could corporate ceo's get behind him and say yes, i'm with donald trump while he continues to call president barack obama. >> i think a lot of issues when you go in front of an audience you get caught up in the moment. i just know i have been at these rallies. i have had a chance to speak at some of these rallies in the past. when you walk into an auditorium that has 25,000 people. if you have never spoken to a crowd that size a lot of times
you will get on a roll. you're not as artful as you would intend to be in the quiet. >> stay inside the rally shlgs what was he doing donald has been a supporter of his for years right after don nad saying it looked terrible for clinton to have the orlando shooter behind her. >> and i'm not trying to nation ral size. they will get these seeded here. i think the con di dat he has -- dang it, we are out of time. you know what that means? it means you have to come back soon.

type of danger. we are learning more ant the identity. >> who is he? >> he is named aaron driver. it is based on information according to canadian police. he was known to intelligence officials for supporting isis in the past. he had a court order against him. he was an individual known to them. somebody that they had kept close on their radar, somebody they were following and tracking. we understand he was taken down yet. we'll ler more than later today. go is canada is a hot bed in any way? >> in 2016 an attack on parliment hill that lead to the death of one police officer. so they have had these incidents

donald trump and hillary clinton with two of the most disliked presidential candidates in u.s. history. it might be good news for my next guest. gary johnson, thanks for joining me this morning. this is sort of the perfect scenario for you do breakthrough. millions of voters satisfied with either candidate. you're getting close to 15% but you're not there yet.
what do you need too dto do? >> let people know that smaller government is less taxes. taxes, that's money out of your and my pocket we could be spending on our lives, not government knows best, the ability of people to make their own choices in their own lives as long as they don't at versely effect others. it has resulted in a less safe world, not a more safe world. let's bring the world together with free trade and we'll have an impen -- natural defense.
>> you need a bigger platform. you need 15% to get a seat in the first debate. are you in talks with some of the republicans who are no longer supporting donald trump? are you talking to mitt romney, jeb bush? these are big nams with big financial backing, back you could use to get your message out? >> right now is just a poll question. do you support either trump or clinton and 99% of the reporting that goes on around the country just reports that top line. when they include my name second question down, you know, i'm polling 10% plus. >> okay. but gary, hold on a second. that's like a hate the game, not the player. this is the game that you're playing. these are the polls. so do you need to gate mitt
romney, a jeb bush? >> well, it's not those sijs that can make or break the campaign. right now we are reaching 25 million people on social media which is like 100% increase in the last month. so i think we are doing all of the right things. it would be terrific but it is really hard as a former elected official to actually do that and we are seeing those kinds of endorsements. >> a way to kick up your social media impact and even bigger way would be to go at it with donald trump and hillary clinton. kudos to you. if that high road leads you off the track and out of the game then you can't have more impact. you know he isn't going to come
swinging rocks. republican governors, reelected and heavily democratic states, both of us made names. >> well, i would love a lightning round. i want your reaction to these hot bed topics that aren't plaguing the other two candidates, one, trump's treatment of the khan family. >> horrible. >> how about his remarks about hillary clinton and the second amendment? >> horrible. >> okay. hillary clinton's e-mails? >> bad judgment.
>> all right. how about the story out today alleging that hillary clinton engaged in pay to play? >> i'm afraid it trues. appears to be true. >> is hillary the founder of isis? unintentionally. >> unintentionally. so you would agree it's a policy issue, it's their policies that led to the rise of isis? is that what you're saying? >> yes. and it wasn't intentional, but you can't make it up when they go in and support the opposition in libya and syria and the opposition is aligned with isis and we arm the opposition and they lose those arms to isis, un unintentional unintentionally. >> all right. back to basics. if it you're around 10%, you're not at 15, which will get you into the debate, some of your main tenets, legalization of weed, these are hot bed issues for many, many americans out there. would you consider bending in
order to get more broad-based support to stay in this race? >> you know what, i think that -- i think what we are saying is representative of about 60% of americans. it's just that they're not hearing that message and that just gets back to what you were talking about right at the top. resources, the ability to actually communicate to a broader base, what it is we are saying. 60% of americans don't even know that we exist right now, so that is an issue of resource. and no, it would not be about bending the issue as much as people just understanding what it is that we are saying. keep government out of the bedroom. keep government out of my pocketbo pocketbook. i think we're all skeptical about our military interventions with regard to regime change. look, there is a positive message out here. life has never been better in america. we communicate better. we get along better. kids are smarter than ever.
number one law enforcement tool we have is our smartphones and black lives do matter. there's an issue for you. >> all right, gary? >> all had our heads in the sand against blacks. >> i've got to go to commercial. before we do, really quick. are you concerned at all -- you mentioned when i talked donald trump earlier. you said horrible, horrible. are you worried you could end up being the ralph nader in this election and actually end up helping him get the seat? >> stephanie, i would not be doing this if i didn't think i was the best choice for the country. and a wasted vote is voting for somebody that you don't believe in. if you vote for somebody you don't believe in, nothing is going to change. vote for johnson/weld. you know what, there's a change there, and it's an optimistic one. >> who doesn't like a little optimism. gary, thank you so much for joining me this more. governor gary johnson. >> thank you. we're going to take a quick
break. coming up, athletes go to the olympics with gold on their mind. so why are the divers in rio seeing green? that's next. ♪ i love that dirty water marcopolo! marco...! polo! marco...! polo! marco...! polo! marco...! sì? polo! marco...! polo! scusa? ma io sono marco polo, ma... marco...! playing "marco polo" with marco polo? surprising.
