in recent days, across this country, i've asked the african-american community to honor me with their vote. i fully recognize the outreach to the african-american community is in an area where the republican party must do better. and it will do better. >> upping his outreach to minority voters, donald trump takes a what do you have to lose approach while courting african-americans. at the same time his campaign is sending mixed messages about his immigration plan.
2:01 am
the cleanup continues across louisiana after severe flooding. donald trump drawing contrasts with president obama after touring the devastation. and new details this morning about a suicide bombing at a wedding in turkey. what we're learning this morning about the young attacker. it is monday, august 22nd. good to be with you. we begin this morning with donald trump, struggling in the polls with minority voters, he crisscrossed the eastern part of the country. over the course of several speeches, he made a direct appeal to african-american voters. and though he's polling in single digits in key swing states he tried to grab once more the mantel of the party of lincoln. >> i'd like to address an issue of great and very deep personal importance to me.
2:02 am
no group in america has been more harmed by hillary clinton's policies than african-americans. if hillary clinton's goal was to inflict pain on the african-american community, she could not have done a better job. we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton, who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future. hillary clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed african-american youth in cities like detroit, who have become refugees in their own country. what do you have to lose? you're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed.
2:03 am
what the hell do you have to lose? >> the clinton campaign responded in a statement saying, in part, donald trump asked what the african-american community has to lose by voting for him. the answer is everything from a man who questions the citizenship of the first african-american president, courts white supremacists and has been sued for housing discrimination against communities of color. donald trump is also working to court hispanic voters with reports he may be shifting his prior mass deportation for undocumented immigrants. trump meant with his newly created hispanic advisory council on saturday at trump tower in new york city. three of the members of that group spoke with nbc latino after the meeting, describing trump as open minded, and saying he asked for their ideas, on how to address the estimated 11 million people in the country without legal status. they added they expect him to offer more details on his plan in colorado later this week. buzzfeed and univision reported that trump was planning to
2:04 am
reverse course on his immigration policy suggesting that he was open to legalization for undocumented immigrants. his campaign disputed that report. and a clinton campaign went after trump releasing a statement that reads in part, we believe the rnc official in the room, the campaign statement after the meeting, and the candidate himself, that donald trump's immigration plan remains the same as it's always been. tear apart families and deport 16 million people from the united states. that statement cites trump conversation with "morning joe" last november. >> how do you deport 12 million -- how do you deport 12 million illegal immigrants? >> you do it. because they're here illegally. you do it. >> are you going to have a massive deportation force? >> you're going to have a deportation force and you're going to do it humanely. and you're going to bring the country -- and frankly the people, because you have some excellent, wonderful people, some fantastic people that have been here for a long period of time. >> people will face ramifications -- >> people will leave. they're here illegally. >> how are you going to pay for this? >> it's very inexpensively --
2:05 am
>> are they going to be ripped out of their homes, how? >> they're going back where they came. if they came from a certain country they're going to be brought back to their country. that's the way it's supposed to be. they can come back but they have to come back legally. they can come back but they have to come back legally. >> yesterday trump's new campaign manager kellyanne conway faced questions over trump's immigration plan including that conversation with "morning joe." >> what he supports is to make sure that you enforce the law, that we are respectful of those americans who are looking for well-paying jobs, and that we are fair and humane for those who live among us in this country. and as the weeks unfold, as the weeks unfold, he will lay out the specifics of that plan that he would implement as president of the united states. >> will that plan include a deportation force, the kind that he just -- you just heard in that sound bite and that he talked about during the republican primaries? >> to be determined. >> frances, it's been a difficult summer in baton rouge, louisiana, to say the very least. the city has seen a string of
2:06 am
tragedies, including the officer-involved shooting death of alton sterling, three police officers killed in an ambush and last week's devastating floods. after facing waves of criticism for being on vacation during the flooding, response president obama will now travel to the hard-hit area tomorrow. donald trump toured the flood damage on friday, handing out food and supplies, according to his campaign trump also donated $100,000 to a louisiana church. later on friday he criticized president obama's absence during a rally in michigan. >> it was actually incredible. the spirit of the people is incredible. the devastation likewise, they've never seen anything like it. but the spirit of the people is incredible, and honestly, obama ought to get off the golf course and get down there. >> and hillary clinton, meanwhile, has sent an e-mail to supporters asking that they donate to flood relief efforts.
2:07 am
donald trump and his surrogates aren't letting up on claims that hillary clinton lacks the physical fitness to be commander in chief. former new york city mayor rudy giuliani encouraged voters to look up online videos while trump this weekend once again brought up an issue with clinton's energy. >> she will never be able to fix the isis problem that her policies created. but one thing she doesn't have the strength or the stamina, coupled with all of the other problems that this country has. >> she has an entire media empire that constantly demonizes donald trump, and fails to point out that she hasn't had a press conference in 300 days, 200 days, 100 days, i don't know how long. fails to point out several signs of illness by her. all you've got to do is go online -- >> her campaign and the people

2:09 am
have the strength or the stamina for a very long time. that part is nothing new. what's new are the other reports of the observations of hillary clinton's behavior and mannerisms, specifically with what you just showed in those previous clips, as well as her dysphasia, the fact that she's fallen, she has had -- >> hold on -- >> there's no indication that she's fallen -- >> let's just step back for one second. >> and we should once again note that hillary clinton's doctor says she is in excellent physical condition. her spokesman meanwhile hit back at rudy giuliani said google rudy and health and you can read about how he withdrew about the senate race for clinton. the mayor did quit that race battling prostate cancer. nbc news has been told that what clinton told the fbi seems to have been largely based on a
2:10 am
memo e-mailed to her describing how he used his personal aol account for unclassified e-mails, and a state department system for classified material. but now powell tells "people" magazine, quote, her people have been trying to pin it on me. the truth is, she was using the private e-mail server for a year before i sent her a memo telling her what i did. the article goes on, why does the former diplomat believe this to be the case? why do you think? he said. it doesn't bother me. but it's okay, i'm free. now reporting on the advice first came from "the new york times," sourcing her fbi conversations, in an upcoming book. the book retails a conversation among former secretaries of state at a dinner. party hosted by madeleine albright where powell also reportedly suggested clinton use personal e-mail. powell told nbc news he had no recollection of that conversation. 51 people are dead and 69 others injured after a child

this feels like a fork in the road to mr. trump. he's either hitting bottom from
2:31 am
which he'll rebound to victory or it's the beginning of the end. so let's look at his options. because obviously losing would be disastrous. because his entire brand is built around not doing that. >> i know how to win. that's what i've been doing all my life is i've been winning. i don't do anything unless i win. i have a winning temperament. i know how to win. because my whole life i've been winning. my whole life has been about winning. >> he's like an alien attempting to impersonate a human but he's only research was watching charlie sheen. and the problem is, trump wouldn't just be losing any election, he'd be losing it to hillary clinton. and that wouldn't just be off brand. it would be brand destroying. and he knows it. >> wouldn't that be embarrassing? to lose to crooked hillary clinton? that would be terrible. >> yes. exactly. >> tries to get his campaign back on track this morning. new polls are getting a new

2:33 am
but their campaign has far to go with weeks remaining until the general election. despite improved fund-raising, a "new york times" story describes his campaign as bare bones, leaning on the republican party to get out the vote also handle digital outreach and raise money. the paper reports that in july alone clinton spent about $3 million on 700 staffers around the united states. a trump campaign source said trump had fewer than 200 total. and that field effort will rely heavily on about 500 rnc staff in 11 swing states. still the party's chair says trump is starting to hit on all sill be ders at the right time. >> i think he's had a great week. i think he's been on message. he's shown maturity as a candidate. i think that he's getting in to a groove. i think he likes the new style that he's been out on the campaign trail producing, and, and, and, and, and speaking of. i think he's done great. >> and a new poll shows hillary clinton has extended her lead to
2:34 am
six points in a key swing state over donald trump. the latest cbs/yougov finds clinton leading trump in ohio up two points from july. and in iowa clinton and trump are now even at 40%. with clinton up one point from july, libertarian candidate gary johnson had the biggest gain from last month in the hawkeye state up four points to 7%. struggling to find footing with minority voters donald trump crisscrossed the eastern part of the country. over the course of several speeches, he made a direct appeal to african-american voters. and though he is polling in single digits in key swing states, he tried to grab once more the mantle of the party of lincoln. >> the outreach to the african-american community is in an area where the republican party must do better. and it will do better. the gop is the party of abraham lincoln.
2:35 am
and i want our party to be the home of the african-american voter once again. what do you have to lose? you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. what the hell do you have to lose? and at the end of four years i guarantee you that i will get over 95% of the african-american vote. i promise you. >> to that clinton campaign responded in a statement saying in part, donald trump asked what the african-american community has to lose by voting for him. the answer is everything from a man who questions the citizenship of the first african-american president, courts white supremacists and has been sued for housing discrimination against communities of color.
2:36 am

2:39 am
london. hadley, some of those oil prices they've been surging over the past two weeks, so what changed this morning and are we going to see any difference at the pump? >> well, it's interesting if you look at what happened this morning the oil prices plunging at the start of trade today, and basically what we've seen of course is week-long rally coming to an end and that rally was what really pushed prices at the pump up about half a percent to $2.17 a gallon that's up 54 cents from this time last year one of the course big questions is why that took place today with the plunge in prices and one of the questions is whether or not all of that rally last week really will bring u.s. producers back to the foreground. now another story that we're watching of course is what's happening with pfizer the potential for a $14 billion all-cash deal taking place as early as today looking to buy this firm, a biotech company that has one of the most popular prostate fighting cancer drugs on the market it rakes in about $2 billion in sales per year so a big question whether or not pfizer will get that big deal done today. and all eyes on the federal
