year, it is "meet the press." we're going to build a great wall on the border, and we're going to institute nationwide e-verify, stop illegal immigrants from accessing welfare, and entitlements, and develop an exit/entry system to ensure those who overstay their visas, that they're quickly removed. we don't enforce our visa expiration dates. then we have open borders, and we have nothing but crime. >> after a week of speculation that he might be softening or even hardening on his immigration stance, donald trump is now promising a major speech to set his policy straight. also false alarm at the los angeles international airport
2:01 am
causes chaos and panic after police receive multiple calls about an active shooter. lester holt was in the middle of it. and we are a month away from the first presidential debate. but both sides are taking a very different approach when it comes to preparing. good morning to you. it's monday, august 29th. i'm betty nguyen alongside louis burgdorf. after days of flux donald trump says he is now headed to arizona for a major speech on immigration. he tweeted i will be making a major speech on illegal immigration on wednesday in the great state of arizona. big crowds looking for a larger venue. last week, though, his campaign issued contradictory messages about whether trump's arizona stop would even happen. announcing an immigration speech at a downtown phoenix hotel while his state director said it was about party unity by friday there were claims it was
2:02 am
canceled. only to be contradicted by the candidate who tweeted, changing venue too much larger one demand is unreal. polls looking great. trump's immigration message has left many confused. he described his position as both softening, and hardening, within a few days of each other and trump did not elaborate while in iowa this weekend again pledging to target immigrant gangs and claiming the media is missing the point. >> all the media wants to talk about is the 11 million people, or more, or less, they have no idea what the number is because we have no control over our country. but my priority, and really it's for the well-being of everybody, but in particular, the 300 million americans and more, and all of our hispanic citizens, and all of our african-american citizens, legal residents who want a secure border, and i mean secure. on day one, i'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal
2:03 am
illegal immigrants from this country. these international gangs of thugs and drug cartels will be, i promise you, from the first day in office, the first thing i'm going to do, the first piece of paper that i'm going to sign, is we're going to get rid of these people day one, before the wall, before anything, and our great law enforcement, they know who they are. they've been living with them for years, and they don't want to put up with it anymore. so we are going to get rid of them day one. >> in chicago police have brought charges in the shooting death of the cousin of nba all-star dwyane wade. police say two brothers are responsible for the shooting death of nykea aldridge, a 32-year-old mother of four pushing a baby stroller friday afternoon after registering one of her children for the school year.
2:04 am
now aldridge was -- is not to believed to be the intended target of the men who police say have gang affiliations. both were on parole one released from prison just two weeks before the shooting. aldridge's death found its way into the political arena on saturday when donald trump tweeted about it. quote, dwyane wade's cousin was shot and killed walking her baby in chicago. just what i have been saying african-americans will vote trump. trump misspelled wade's name in the tweet. three hours later twum corrected the misspelling replacing it with the same tweet. nearly another hour and a half after that trump offered his condolences to wade and his family in the loss of nykea aldridge telling them that they are in my thoughts and prayers. trump was criticized for insensitivity but his running mate mike pence said it was creation of the media. >> do you think that was a presidential reaction to a tragedy? >> well, right after that he issued his -- a tweet expressing his prayers, and his thoughts and his condolences --
2:05 am
>> but this is a pattern when there's a tragedy he sends a tweet talking about how this is going to help his campaign. >> look, can i just make the point? a lot of you people in the media spend more time talking about what donald trump said and tweeted in the last three days than you do focusing on what the clintons have been up to for the last 30 years. >> well, hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine is escalating attacks on donald trump during a rally on friday kaine tried to link trump with the values of the ku klux klan. >> hillary clinton gave a speech in reno, nevada, calling out donald trump on a lot of things on this equality idea. calling him out on the fact that he has supporters like david duke connected with the ku klux klan who are going around and saying donald trump is their candidate, because donald trump is pushing their values. ku klux klan values, david duke values, donald trump values, are not american values. they're not our values and we've got to do all we can to fight to push back and win.
2:06 am
>> i think senator kaine's comments, hillary clinton's comments, on thursday night sound desperate to me. i mean to be honest with you i don't talk a lot about the polls, jake, but i know the polls are all closing up and the fact that you see democrats, and hillary clinton and her running mate rolling out the same old playbook of racial divisiveness sounds a little bit to me like an act of desperation. democratic vice presidential nominee tim kaine was campaigning in florida. he made several stops and made it clear they believe some traditional swing states are now all but out of reach for donald trump. >> a couple of the states that were really close have actually moved into pretty safe -- safer territory, virginia is one, colorado is one. but what that means is the states that are real close, okay now we can really spend a lot of time here. and florida is one of those states. not only massive on the
tv-commercial
2:07 am
electoral vote side but also because it is so close, it's a place where we're going to spend a lot of time. >> a democratic source tells nbc news that the super pac backing hillary clinton does not plan on running any more ads in virginia this election season. at the same time, independent candidate evan mcmullen has reportedly collected enough signatures to qualify for the ballot in that battleground state. meanwhile a group of anti-trump republicans are going after the gop nominee in a tv ad set to air in several swing states. in the new spot titled keep your word, the group is urging donald trump to drop out of the presidential race. >> number one, i'm not a masochist, and if i was dropping in the polls where i saw that i wasn't going to win, why would i continue? i believe in polls. how many elections do you see where the polls were wrong? not that many. okay. you see them but not that many. if i were doing poorly, if i saw myself going down, i'd go
2:08 am
back -- >> and this morning we're getting a look at the stark differences in how donald trump and hillary clinton are preparing for their first debate which is now less than a month away. the headline in "the washington post," clinton's careful case versus trump's wrestle mania. nbc's kelly owe donele has more. >> good morning, betty. when it comes to style points and how they approach their campaigns, these two candidates could not be more different. and perhaps we'll see that in the biggest possible terms when the debate season begins. already donald trump and hillary clinton are getting down to business preparing, but in very different ways. just four weeks, two very different playbooks. >> lead remembers stupid. our politicians are stupid. >> reporter: heading into the ultimate debate stage one-on-one. >> i was the first one to call him out. i called him out when he was calling mexicans rapists. >> reporter: in his new jersey weekend home donald trump did bebait prep his way.
2:09 am
>> look he's an unconventional candidate and he's not going to prepare the way hillary does, which is you know, lock in a room and cram your head with all these binders. >> reporter: no formal rehearsal. just hashing out ideas over lunch with friends and family. including former fox news executive roger ailes and radio host laura ingraham. sources say trump -- traditional mock debate practice and plans to rely more on his gut. hillary clinton is on the fund-raising circuit with four events in the hamptons. this weekend celebrity supporters, being actors ashton kutcher and jason george helped out clinton's campaign while barbra streisand hit send to raise campaign cash. unlike trump, clinton has been carefully preparing her responses to meet debate time limits. her advisers call trump a formidable adversary. >> well it is going to be difficult. because you're going to have to prepare for many different trumps. kind of like well-behaved, modest trump.
2:10 am
i doubt we'll see that. you know, kind of off the rails trump. >> reporter: holding fewer public events right now as she works to raise campaign cash. and study for the debates, hillary clinton is calling on her most famous surrogates to help out. president obama, and vice president biden will be hitting the campaign trail for her but without her in the next couple of weeks. betty? >> all right, kelly thank you so much for that. a top republican debate coach tells nbc news trump learned the wrong lessons from the primary where quick, snapdowns in a crowded field worked. it's also been noted that trump has never done a one-on-one debate and has never gone 90 minutes with no commercial break. there were some tense moments last night as los angeles international airport, after it was evacuated due to reports of a shooting. passengers could be seen running from waiting areas and terminals onto the tarmac. nbc's own lester holt happened to be arriving at the airport when the incident occurred. >> people began flooding out, passengers, security people, i
2:11 am
heard shots fired, or active shooter, run. people didn't really know what to do. there were lots of people sitting in buses, passengers on the tarmac. some standing around in groups. trying to find out what happened. there were people who claim that they had heard pops or shots. other people like us heard nothing but run and saw the crowds and reacted in the appropriate manner as you would in a situation like that. when we were coming from the remote terminal to the main terminal we saw two police cars at very high rate of speed zipping past airplanes on an active taxiway to the terminal. and then of course moments later were met by people running down -- down the stairs. my mind immediately went two things, that "a" this is real. or, we're seeing a repeat of what we had seen in new york a couple of weeks ago with a mass panic based on people hearing what they thought were the sounds of shots. >> now lester holt was referring to the situation two weeks ago at new york's jfk where there was an evacuation based on
2:12 am
reports of a shooter which turned out to be people cheering for usain bolt at the olympics. the all-clear was given at l.a.x. a short time later after a police investigation concluded that loud noises caused the panic. in what appeared to be a separate incident, though, a man dressed as zoro complete with cape, mask and plastic sword, was detained by police at the airport around the same time. a witness says he was giving out hugs. and a small mississippi community will gather today to pay their final respects to the two nuns found murdered in their home last week as authorities continue to question the man who confessed to the crime. a wake was held for sisters margaret held and paula merrill that was last night they were discovered stabbed to death on thursday after they did not show up for work. and yet family members are already trying to show compassion for the men accused of their murder. >> this is not a hate crime. i'm positive it's fuelled by something other than that. or maybe all of the other terrible things that he has
2:13 am
lived through in his life. i forgive him. i don't understand why he did it. i would like to know that. but if i don't find out the world won't end. >> the man police say confessed to the crime has not given them a reason as he yet as to why he did it. 46-year-old rodney earl sanders was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder late friday. he's currently being held awaiting his initial court appearance. beloved mexican singer juan gabriel has died at the age of 66. gabriel also known as el diveo dejuarez was a successful vocalist and wrongwriter selling more than 100 million albums worldwide. also nominated for six grammys. his family says he died of a heart attack in santa monica, california, yesterday morning. he gave his final performance saturday night in front of a sellout crowd. mexican president tweeted his condolences saying gabriel was a voice and a talent that represented mexico.

2:17 am
let's get a check on your weather now with nbc meteorologist bill karins. hopefully you had a great weekend. >> i did. >> how's monday shaping up? >> the weather is all being dictated by the tropics. what's going to happen in north carolina. what's going to happen in the southeast with our other tropical storm eventual tropical
2:18 am
storm. last night there was a really bad scene around cincinnati. we were under a flash flood warning. this is saint bernard, ohio, i mean that's a lot of water. that's rushing fast, too. yeah. and there goes something floating down. we could -- you know i'm not going to see anything like that during the day. isolated thunderstorm could do some downpours outside of the tropics. we have two tropical systems. a tropical depression 8, tropical depression 9, if they get named they'll become tropical storms. one is right here. you saw the flare-up that has died off heading for eastern north carolina. good news for them. and the one we were watching all last week has made it through the florida straits and is just north of cuba. a lot of thunderstorms over cuba, but so far not showing any signs of developments. just got the brand-new forecast in from the hurricane centers. first the one that's going to impact eastern north carolina. they only bring it up to about 45-mile-per-hour winds as it passes by the outer banks near cape hatteras. so that's not much of an issue
2:19 am
for the outer banks. that's barely even it's going to be a breezy day, rip currents will be a threat for people at the beach. larger than normal waves good for the surfers. that's really the only impact. now we focus our attention to the water in the gulf. this is where the water is very warm this time of year. you don't like to have any storm down there in the gulf, let alone a system that's going to sit for two to three days. that's going to be the case. the hurricane center thinks that the winds are going to only strengthen to 50 to 60 miles per hour by the time it makes it to the big bend of florida. that would be a medium impact tropical storm. then crossing over florida, and then heading out here into areas of the open atlantic as it strengthens possibly to a hurricane. louis we still have to watch that. we have a storm that's going to be in the gulf of mexico for three days over some of the warmest water on the planet. that's the fuel for these storms. we'll watch that closely over the next three days. >> bill it seems like hurricane season has arrived. >> it is. and there's another tropical wave coming off of the coast of africa a lot of our computers are taking to the caribbean or possibly you know towards --
2:20 am
>> double digits by the time this is all -- >> probably. we thought we'd have a more active season. >> all right guys. let's turn to business real quick here as health insurers continue to drop out of obamacare. marketplace is facing what could start to feel like a monopoly in 2017. cnbc's hadley gamble joins us live from london. hadley, the latest in what seems like a rash of bad headlines for the white house about the president's signature law. what do you got for us? >> it does indeed. really this just adds up to less options and potentially higher costs for consumers. because essentially what we've heard is in a new study by the kaiser found anxious some 31% of u.s. counties by 2017 will have only one insurance option for consumers, and another 31% will only have two insurance options, so some bad news for consumers. this is all off the back of this major pullback from health insurers they said that they've been losing money since this legislation came into effect. now another story that we are watching is what's happening with commercial drones. new laws that come into effect today will essentially allow
2:21 am
commercial drones in everything from agriculture to construction to even firefighting. essentially what we know right now is you have to be at least 16 years old to operate these droens. they can't go faster than 100 miles per hour. and they have to operate in daylight. so some exciting times for commercial drones, louis. >> hadley gamble live from london thanks so much. look forward to seeing those drones flying around. still ahead a baseball player's simple gesture led to tears of joy for one young fan last night. we have that story plus some other sports highlights when we come back right. she spent summer binge-watching. soon, she'll be binge-studying. now she writesostly in emoji. soon, she'll type the best essays in the entire 8th grade. today, the only spanish words he knows are burrito and enchilada. soon, he'll take notes en espanol. get back to great with the right gear. from the place with the experts. office depot officemax.

2:25 am
yesterday kaepernick explained he is trying to raise awareness, pointing to issues of police brutality and racial divide in the united states. he told reporters, quote, when there's significant change and i feel that the flag represents what it's supposed to represent in this country is representing people in the way it's supposed to i'll stand. you can imagine that decision prompted plenty of back lash, including people posting videos online burning his jerseys. all right let's go to the baseball diamond real quick here in new york the orioles mark trumbo extends the lead to five thanks to this shot in the eighth inning. it's his 40th run of the season. the o's beat the yanks 5-0. the blue jays donaldson making a bold statement that he should be the american league mvp launching not one, not two, but three long balls in yesterday's win over the twins. fans showered the field with their caps after he completed that home run hat trick in the bottom of the eighth inning the
2:26 am
blue jays win it 9-6. i love to see those hats on the field. and in arlington, texas, the rangers slugger carlos beltran sporting a new look in the dugout. the typically bald beltran appearing with a painted on hairdo as the a.l. leading rangers beat the indians 2-1. is that sharpie marker? and finally in detroit one young fan wearing an angels mike trout jersey becomes overwhelmed with emotion after receiving an autograph from the star player before yesterday's game against the tigers the youngster raises his arms in triumph as he runs over to embrace his father. shedding tears of joy. that's just nothing better than that. i love that. >> oh, that is so fantastic. you can tell he is moved by that. he is going to remember that probably for the rest of his life. all right. thanks, louis. still ahead, is there an actual doctor in the house? president obama's former campaign manager has some harsh words when it comes to donald trump. plus two pilots arrested right before takeoff on suspicion of being too drunk to fly. we'll be right back. well she loves to say, "well, fantastic!" a lot.

2:30 am
that establishment media assault on me, and they have said it, that the establishment media assault on me, has been the greatest that they've ever seen in the political history of our country. i feel that. i feel it. i know it. even today, some major papers failed to mention how strong our poll numbers have become over the last two-week period. the media is totally dishonest.
2:31 am
they're a rigged system trying to deny people the pose pif change that they're looking for and they deserve. they take phrases and statements, chop them up, take them out of context, and then they discuss them for days and days and days. always trying to demean and belittle just whatever they can do to demean and belittle. our incredible movement. because we have a movement. they all said this is one of the great movements. we're going to take our country back from the death spiral that it's currently in. >> donald trump slams the media during a campaign stop in iowa this weekend while also slamming the press for, quote, missing the point on his immigration stance. and he's once again under fire for something he said on social media. accused of politicizing the death of nba star dwyane wade's cousin. and panic at los angeles international airport after reports of shots fired. but it turned out to be the second false alarm at a major airport in two weeks.
2:32 am
good morning, it's monday, august 29th, i'm louis burgdorf alongside betty nguyen. we'll get to that story out of los angeles in just a moment. >> first after days of flux donald trump says he's headed to arizona for a major speech on immigration. trump tweeted i will be making a major speech on illegal immigration on wednesday in the great state of arizona. big crowds looking for a larger venue. last week his campaign issued contradictory messages about whether trump's arizona stop would even happen announcing an immigration speech at a downtown phoenix hotel while his state director said it was about party unity by friday there were claims it was canceled. only to be contradicted by the candidate who tweeted, changing venue to much larger one. demand is unreal. polls looking great. trump's immigration message has
2:33 am
left many confused. he described his position as both softening, and hardening, within a few days of each other and trump did not elaborate while in iowa this weekend again pledging to target immigrant gangs and claiming the media is missing the point. >> all the media wants to talk about is the 11 million people, or more, or less, they have no idea what the number is because we have no control over our country. but my priority, and really it's for the well-being of everybody, but in particular, the 300 million americans and more, and all of our hispanic citizens, and all of our african-american citizens, legal residents who want a secure border, and i mean secure. on day one, i'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. these international gangs of thugs and drug cartels will be,
2:34 am
i promise you, from the first day in office, the first thing i'm going to do, the first piece of paper that i'm going to sign, is we're going to get rid of these people day one, before the wall, before anything, and our great law enforcement, they know who they are. they've been living with them for years, and they don't want to put up with it anymore. so we are going to get rid of them day one. we're going to build a great wall on the border and we're going to institute nationwide e-verify, stop illegal immigrants from accessing welfare, and entitlements, and develop an exit/entry. you know what that is, exit/entry system to ensure those who overstay their visas that they're quickly removed. we don't enforce our visa expiration dates. then we have open borders, and we have nothing but crime.
2:35 am
>> now trump has spoken repeatedly in recent weeks about his desire to win the african-american vote, and it seems he will finally take that message in front of a black audience. according to a statement from the campaign, trump will speak at great faith ministries in detroit this saturday. trump will be making the swing through michigan on labor day weekend when democrats traditionally stop in detroit for the annual labor day picnic. and it comes on the heels of the state's two-term republican governor rebuking his statement that quote the michigan manufacturing sector is a disaster and that mexico would steal the state's claim as the car capital of the world very, very soon. well on friday governor rick snyder said factually that's not accurate. michigan is number one in the creation of manufacturing jobs over the last few years, and we've got a thriving manufacturing sector and i'm proud of it. snyder has not endorsed in the presidential race. turning now to chicago, police have brought charges in the shooting death of the cousin of nba all-star dwyane wade. police say two brothers are responsible for the shooting death of nykea aldridge, a

they're not our values and we've got to do all we can to fight to push back and win. >> i think senator kaine's comments, hillary clinton's comments, on thursday night sound desperate to me. i mean to be honest with you i don't talk a lot about the polls, jake, but i know the polls are all closing up and the fact that you see democrats, and hillary clinton and her running mate rolling out the same old playbook of racial divisiveness sounds a little bit to me like an act of desperation. >> form remember obama campaign adviser david plouffe made a starker assessment when asked about swing states. >> i think the assessment was that donald trump would try to do some things to appeal to the middle of the electorate. to appeal to suburban college educated women. he's not. basically we have a psycho path running for president. he meets the clinical definition. >> wait a minute, wait a minute,
2:39 am
do you really think -- diagnosing people on-air, and i assume you don't have a agree in psychology. is that fair? i mean, we're jumping -- we're jumping to conclusions here. i think this is what gets voters a little frustrated. >> well, i, you know, listen, grandiose notion of self-worth, pthological like, lack of empathy and remorse. so i think he does. right i don't have a degree. in psychology. >> there were some tense moments last night as los angeles international airport was evacuated due to a reports of a shooting. passengers could be seen running from waiting areas and terminals onto the tarmac. nbc's own lester holt happened to be arriving at the airport when the incident occurred. >> people began flooding out, passengers, security people, i heard shots fired, or active shooter, run. people didn't really know what to do. there were lots of people sitting in buses, passengers on the tarmac. some standing around in groups.
