i'm ayman mohyeldin alongside yasmin vossoughian and louis be burgdorf. we begin on the fight against terror. u.s. coalition continues to gain ground in syria. could be escalation of the america counterterrorism operation. trump administration is moving towards using lethal force via armed drones in niger. planned armed drones in the region has been under consideration since before the deadly ambush this month. that incident ramped up the urgency within the administration to take more aggressive action. three u.s. officials tell nbc news pushing niger to allow for armed drones on bases. meanwhile military officials tell nbc news ambush control was conducting a far more complex anti-terrorism mission than previously believed. may have been tracking a isis
mission. working in the area. that second team has been using unarmed drone which was rushed to the ambush site after the patrol call for help and currently unclear why that team did not send soldiers as well. in any event, echo of the fatal mission of yemen back in january, the commander in chief is not taking responsibility. >> did you authorize the mission. >> no what, no, i didn't. not specifically. i have generals who are great generals. these are great fighters. great warriors. >> i gave them a authority to do what's right to win. that's the authority they have. i want to win. we're going to win. my generals and the military have decision making ability. as far as the incident that we're talking about, i've been getting reports they have to meet the enemy.
>> the house and senate armed services committee will receive classified briefings this morning about niger more than three weeks after the ambush. president tru after hearing the president stumble over her husband's name. >> he couldn't remember my husband's name. the only way he remembered my husband's name is because he told me he had my husband report in front of him and that's when he actually said la david. i heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name. and that what hurted me the most. if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risks his life for our country, why can't you remember his name? >> i was really nice to her. i respect her. i respect her family. i certainly respect la david. he is who i by the way called la
david right from the beginning. just so you understand, they put a chart. la david. says la david johnson. so i called right from the beginning, no hesitation. one of the great memories of all time. no hesitation. moving to politics for a moment. hoped defiant rejection of falsehood, reckless behavior would be a tipping point, but as you can imagine, most members of his party was just another day as president trump tweeted wednesday morning, jeff flake with 18% approval rating in arizona said a lot of my colleague haves spoken out. really, they just gave me a standing o. in interviews yesterday, many of flake and corker's colleagues, some once harsh critics of trump, agreed. >> the president has his own way of communicating and it's worked. he's getting things done. he's performing. sure he's not the cookie cutter.
ting republicans need to have a leader and takes the raneigns t way he wants. >> i try to not make it about personality. that's calling the pot calling the kettle black. one of the things the media missed on this, keep saying senator so and so is a conservative. why is there such a disagreement. because we've made this about personalities and less about policy. >> i think it's unfortunate the nastiness that pervades washington right now and the political battles and personality that consume seemingly every minute of media attention and an awful lot of the time and energy here in this town. it's like you're back in junior high. i really don't care who passed
note to the cute girl in pigtails. we have a job to do. all of this nonsense -- i've got nothing to say. everyone shut up and do your job. sdiet tthe "new york times" this. those uneasy with grievance policy are either giving in our giving up the fight. speaking from the white house yesterday, president praised the state of cohesion in his party. >> ting republican party has a pretty good unity. the fact is, there was tremendous unity in that room. we're really unified on what we want to do. we want tax cuts for the middle class: we want tax cuts for businesses to produce jobs. there's great unity. >> joining us how, news desk reporter for axios, alayna
treene, good to have you with us. do you think that they've had the kind of impact that they wanted to have with the way they increased the rhetoric? certainly senator bob corker, but more importantly the passionate speech by jeff flake on the senate floor. >> if you look at it, they both say they're not coming up for re-election. frees them up to speak more. if you look at the rest of the party, they did give him a standing ovation when he was on the hill. despite them griping about them in private, they will support him publically. they know they need to support him to favor with the voters. the party is very strong towards trump. and also to get things done. >> let's talk tax reform here, alayna. the house and secretary today. set up the parameters of the new tax bill. and allow republicans to pass
tax reform without those democratic votes. >> so there's some debate about that. i think that most of the core gop party thinks they'll be able to get it through easily. they really want to get it done. a lot of debate they're putting off to the side to move it forward quickly. especially after some of the losses they've seen with health care. they're really want to move forward with tax reform and just pass something at this point. >> i want to ask you about this. there's a new poll essentially that shows trump's approval rating falling this month. especially among his base and independent voters and, certainly, his base is something that matters to him. we always talk from political perspective how he makes decks and throws red meat at his base. how does one explain this recent drop among his base and independent voters. >> right. what we're hearing is his base is still very strong towards
him. a lot of this pitiney nesiness hill, they see this. has taken a toll on them. they recognize it as holding the administration and trump back from passing the things they voted for. they want things to get done. five weeks since hurricane maria devastated puerto rico. there are new questions being raised about the company awarded the largest contract to rebuild the grid. montana firm has signed $300 million contract to repair puerto rico's electrical infrastructure. the company is based out of white fish montana. hometown of interior secretary zinke. at two years old, white fish energy only had two full-time

if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. i think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. let's see if that happens. >> trump's campaign released a statement claiming it relied on the rnc and data experts as our main source for data analytics, but failed to mention the campaign cambridge. almost $6 million in the firm. owned by the mercer family. close ties to steve bannon, mike pence, jared kushner and others tied to the trump team. steve bannon once on the board of cambridge and according to news, divested stake in the company to join the trump white house. earlier this month, house intelligence committee is looking into the firm as part of its investigation into russia's metaling. it's been more than two months since the president signed russia sanction bill into

headline claiming that bannon is anti-semitic. bannon has denied the claim. attack on his character was, quote. >> reporter for axios, alayna treene, good to see you once again. you heard "the washington post" reporting allies and mitch mcconnell declared war against steve bannon. not surprised. bannon has had to say on the public stage with all of this. how nasty is this going to get, do you think. >> i think it could get pretty nasty. i think there's still a disconnect. co-founder of -- telling me the grassroots really kind of still aligned bannon and when they get upset with these primary can candidates, they take that view of it and more so see that
mcconnell and the establishment gop really aren't getting it. i do think that mcconnell, ryan, they're going to keep endorsing these incumbent senators in these primaries. there will still be a lot of back and forth between the bannon and mcconnell factions for sure. >> let me ask you to look into your crystal ball for a moment and talk about former vice president joe biden speaking to vanity fair, not ruling out a possible 2020 run against donald trump. we know back in 2016, he was still reeling from the passing of his son. that weighed on the possibility of whether or not he could run the campaign back then. will it happen in 2020? what are you hearing. >> reporter: such a biden answer of him to say i have decided i'm not going to not run, but people are taking from that that he's going to run. i think there's a good possibility of it. he wanted to in 2016, but of course what was going on in his family decided not to. i think he has a good chance of
trying for this in 2020. there's still a lot of things uncertain. we don't know who else is going to be running. if he's going to decide to want to go against the other democrats so there's still uncertainty. i think him saying this shows that it's a possibility. >> if people were worried about his health, he would be in the same age group as president trump. so both the same age demographic. >> in you don't want to see a second terms of trump, a lot of people weighing in saying biden could be the man. >> also, president trump returning to texas yesterday for an update on the hurricane recovery efforts. and also to attend a fundraiser there. is this the president trying to do damage control considering what's taken place in the criticism that he received after u.s.'s response in puerto rico. >> i think that's definitely plays a part in it. his handling of the storms was initially not viewed well with
american voters. after puerto rico kind of slid down a bit. this is him going back to ensure people i'm here. i'm still paying attention. he's always more so had a bit of a better way of responding in texas than he did in puerto rico. they greeted him as we just saw. screaming usa and chanting for him. so there's definitely a difference between the response that you've seen there and in florida than in puerto rico. >> all right. alayna treene, thank you very much. still ahead, a peaceful meal is shattered for restaurant patrons after a car comes barrelling into the eatery. show you more of that video coming up next. unbelievable. bill karins is back with us. details on halloween weekend snow that is actually brewing in some parts of the country. potential for a foot of powder in some parts of the country. >> make that fun for some families.
