the story for us. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: craig, good morning to you. there is mounting pressure on president trump to publicly denounce the white supremacist at the root of the violence in virginia. he didn't do it over the weekend. and democrats and republicans are united. he needs to speak out more forcefully. this morning, the white house grappling with the ongoing backlash over the words that president trump didn't say in the wake of the violent clashes in virginia. not specifically calling out white supremacist groups behind it all. >> he missed an opportunity to be explicit here. >> reporter: the president's statement on saturday, seemed to suggest that everyone shared some blame. >> patriot bigotry and violence on many sides. >> reporter: the president's failure to condemn the nationalists, significant because during the campaign,
some of those groups supported him. and kkk leader said they were protesting in the president's name. >> we're determined to take our country back. we're going to fulfill the promises of donald trump. >> the reaction swift and angry, including from republicans. senator marco rubio urged the president to call them terrorist attacks. and trump's short-limited communications director. >> he needs to be har nsh the nature of that. >> reporter: ivanka trump tweeting, there should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy. the white house trying to contain the foulout, saying the president's exclusion includes the aaa and all groups. >> the top advisers clarify. >> i condemn the groups that ex-spouse this hatred, i cannot be clearer. >> was that terrorism yesterday? >> what terrorism is, is the use
of violence to incite terrorism and fear. >> reporter: as a candidate, mr. trump said labels are important. >> anyone who cannot name our enemy is not fit to lead this country. >> reporter: now, the president's saturday silence on white hate groups is creating a deafening problem for the white house. the president was silent on sunday, including on twitter. he has sent out a series of tweets, this morning, including this one. heading to washington this morning. much work to do. focus on trade and military. but still nothing about virginia. it's the one topic people all across the country are waiting for him to revisit. savannah? craig? >> kristen welker for us from new jersey. we're hearing from the vice president, mike pence, as he begins a week-long trip to south and central america. he singled out white supremacists, neo-nazis and the
kkk, he defended the president for not citing those groups in his statement. peter alexander is traveling with the vice president and spoke with him one-on-one. peter, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. i traveled to colombia with the vice president. during our interview, he did what many critics say the president should have done. he condemned white nationalists, white supremacists and neo-nazis. i began our conversation asking him why the president didn't call out those groups by name. >> the president said he condemns hate and violence in all of its forms. we will not tolerate hatred and violence of groups like white supremacists and kkk and the neo-nazis. the extremist fringe groups have no place in the american debate. we condemn them in the strongest of terms. >> why won't the president use
those words? >> i think the american people heard the president idea, condemn in his words, organizations that purvey hate and violence. the american people heard him. >> to be fair, some americans heard that. others didn't, including orrin hatch. my brother didn't give his life fighting hilter will for nazi ideas not to g challenged here at home. was it a mistake for the president not the be more clear? if you were advising him now, would you suggest he do it differently? >> i think the president yesterday spoke into a national moment. words that the american people needed to hear. we condemn acts of violence, acts of hatred. >> he said on many sides. name those sides. what are the sides? >> as i said today, we condemn in the strongest terms, the hate and violence advocated by groups
like white supremacists, neo-nazis and their ilk. >> that's one side. what's the other side? he says many sides. >> as you look throughout the course of recent years, we've seen protests turn violent. we've seen fringe groum groups violence against police officers, with tragic results. >> with respect, only one group yesterday killed one american. >> and we're bringing the full weight of the federal government to investigate that heinous act. i take issue with the fact that many in the immediamedia are sp more time -- >> this is orrin hatch and cory gardner, sir. i'm reading their quotes. >> many in the media spend a lot of time focusing on what the president said and critici criticizing -- instead of criticizing those who brought that hatred and violence to the
streets of charlottesville, virginia. >> reporter: at the end of the conversation, i asked the vice president if this was an act of domestic terrorism. he said, it may well have been. the president has directed the department of justice to direct a full investigation into attacks he said were similar to other attacks around the world. we're joined by jeff sessions. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> let's talk about the president's words. they're worth focusing on on this moment. he said, this was an egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. and he was asked to condemn white supremacists who were protesting. why didn't he call them out? >> well, he made a very strong statement that directly contradicted the ideology of hatred, violence, bigotry,
racism, white supremacy. those things must be condemned in this country. they're totally unacceptable. you can be sure this department of justice in his administration is going to take the most vigorous action to protect the right of people like heather heyer, to protest against racism and bigotry. we're going to protect the right to assemble and march. and we're going to prosecute anybody, to the full extent of the law, that violates their ability to do so. you can be sure of that. >> attorney general sessions, let me follow up. you say it was a forceful statement. but he adds the violence going on, the hatred and bigotry were on many sides. what are the many sides? >> we had spasms of violence
that are unacceptable in america. he said he wasn't talking about donald trump or barack obama. he said these problems have been going on for a long time. he said what happened in charlottesville is unacceptable. we need to find out what happened, that it's wrong. and we need to study it and see what as a nation we can do to be more effective against this kind of extremism and evil, really. i thought it was a -- it was a good estimate, delivered just a few hours after the event. the next day, yesterday, they explicitly called out the nazis and the kkk. >> the president did not. >> that statement that you're referring to, came from the white house. it was -- >> it came from the white house. it sure did. it was authorized. >> here's a president, as you know, general sessions, he's not afraid to take to twitter to ca chastise, a number of folks, yourself included. he's not afraid to call out
terrorism overseas. he didn't do that, why? >> the president did do that -- >> that wasn't the president. that's not the same as the president of the united states. >> you're interrupting me. i asked you, i was giving you an answer. >> go ahead. >> it was a white house spokesman who made that statement, explicitly condemning these groups by name. i'm sure he'll talk again about it soon. >> today? will the president of the united states, today, is going to explicitly condemn the alt-right groups and white nationalist groups? >> he will be speaking to the people today. i'm not sure what he will say. that's my understanding. and he's been firm on this from the beginning. he is appalled by this. >> general sessions, "the daily sto stormer," a neo-nazi publication. they saw it as a tacit sign of support for their sign. this is what they posted shortly after the president's comments in part. and i think we have it here on
the careen for you. president trump's comments were good. he didn't attack us. nothing specific against us. they go on to say we need to study why people are to angry, and implied there were hate on both sides. he said the anti-fascists are haters. god bless him. that's from a neo-nazi publication. isn't that proof that the president didn't stand up sufficiently to white supremacy on saturday? >> they're simply attempting to legitimate themselves in any way possible. they're find ought we're coming after them for any violations of the law. the president has condemned by name and will continue to do so. i'm confident that the american people will reject this kind of evil ideology. and we need to take it seriously. it does appear that people
are -- amazingly, naziism remains alive, after all of the evil it has caused in the world. i think we take in seriothis se. we go after it morally, politically, legitimately, in any way possible to reject this ideology that causes division and hatred in america. it's just not part of our heritage. >> before we let you go. we haven't had a chance to speak to you since the president made several remarks directed at you, his own attorney general. my question to you, has the president apologized for his kind of public scolding of you? have you spoken to him about it? especially in light that you're out here defending him? >> i believe in the president's agenda. i believe in his leadership. he has a right to scold his cabinet members if he's not happy with them. and he has a right to have people in his cabinet that he
believes will serve his agenda. >> did you deserve that publicly like that? >> and talking about -- the issues that face us right now. i appreciate the opportunity to serve in his administration. >> has he ever apologized for doing so publicly? >> he's not apologized. he is frank about his concerns and expressed them openly. >> attorney general, thank you for being with us. we appreciate it. let's get a first check of the weather. dylan is in for al today. >> good morning, guys. we're looking at the tropics. we have tropical storm gert now. the storm has winds up near 45 miles per hour. it's moving to the north-northwest at 9. it is looking to take a turn and run parallel to the east coast. while the storm will not necessarily be a threat to the united states, we're still looking at the chance of dangerous rip currents, especially down along the southeast, as we go into the

cancer, death, obesity, interracial relationships. and it's about a family that is given all these twists and turns from life. you can catch season one on nbc.com. >> next up, we have "empire" which people know. >> hip-hop soap opera is what it is. season four is returning. and a lot of the reason that this show is successful, is because of the scandalous plot lines, and the chemistry between the two leads in taraji p. henson and terrence howard. a lot of people will be looking for this. >> shonda rhimes knows how to keep us entertained. two of her shows are coming back.

fix her own life. this is one that has made such an impact on a cultural level that this one is going to be missed a lot. >> everybody is wondering how it will end. will she or won't she? >> they just picked up shonda rhimes on netflix, a multiyear deal. she will be creating new shows. > >> gold mine ready to happen. we've been talking about "will & grace." >> eight seasons from 1996. they're returning the cast. the response has been so electric that they -- the show was supposed to be 12 just episodes. they extended it to 16. they just renewed it for season two without the first episode airing. >> they're confident. >> tremendous response. we can't wait for the show to come back. binge it. >> and "jane the virgin" coming back. october 14th, fourth season. this made gina rodriguez a star. about a pregnant virgin who is trying to figure everything out with the bizarre circumstance of
events. see if you can do it. an english-language novella, that's quirky and emotional at the same time. >> and one more. "curb your enthusiasm." that's the hit. >> larry david decided to take off six years before doing season nine. whatever he wants. came up with a great idea. now, he's returning, october 1st, for season nine. if you haven't seen the show, it's the misadventures of larry david, who plays an exaggerated version of himself, with very comical effect. one of the key things about the show, is underneath all of the jokes, a lot of social commentary. he does it skillfully and commentary. you can laugh without the guilt. >> the fact it went away and has come back, it builds up more. >> the anticipation for it. >> jack, thank you so much. nice to have you here. >> thanks. coming up next, a perfect dinner to go with your binge watching. watching. curtis will show us how to

beef salad. you start with a beautiful dry-aged new york strip. you get a funky flavor to it. a little salt and pepper on both sides. and there's a couple of important steps to grilling the perfect steak. all right? you don't add any oil to the pan. if you need to add a little oil, add it to the steak. >> what kind of oil do you use? >> a little grape seed oil. a lot of steak don't needs any oil. the marble is enough to give you a seal. there's a couple of important parts. first of all, temper the steak. you let it come up to room temperature. you're going to cook it on each side for 60 seconds and turn it every 60 seconds. that way, you are going to cook it a little slower. all right? i'm going to leave that. and i'm going to show you how it looks when it comes off. >> that's it, just salt and pepper?
>> salt and pepper. you don't need marinade on a beautiful, tender steak. you want to taste the flavor of the beef. this is a new york strip once it's been cooked and rested. that's the other important part. rest the steak. i'm cutting into it and juices aren't flying out. you've allowed the temperature to come down ever so slightly, which actually means all of the juice stays inside the steak, rather than ending up all over the cutting board. the general rule of thumb is rest it half the time to cook it. if it was on for five minutes, rest it for 2 1/2. >> look how clean and neat that is. >> isn't that beautiful? >> how long does it take to get to the perfect color? >> one this size is probably going to send 60 seconds on each side and i'll turn it twice. two minutes on each side should be enough. four minutes cooking time total. what do you do with leftover steak? sometimes we grill a little too much. you make a beautiful thai salad.
into my blender, have fish sauce, garlic, ginger and thai chili. >> is that everything we need? >> that's everything you need. >> that's not bad at all. >> a little bit of sugar. a little bit of grape seed oil. >> the fish sauce isn't fishy. i was expecting it to be fishy. >> you don't need to put too much. okay. let me turn it on. you blend it. this emulsifies the sauce. right? and that's it. it's that simple. all those ingredients into a blender. that's all you have to do. next, you make the salad. i have beautiful greens. some cucumber that i've just sliced. some cherry tomatoes. some mint. some basae sill. and cilantro. i tear this because bruising the herb a little will help the flavor come out. a little of the basil, as well. and some of the beautiful, fresh cilantro. >> that's what it is. >> cilantro is fresh and
gorgeous. and red onions. cut the end of your onion off. slice it nice and thin, right? if you want to use a mandolin, you can use a mandolin. >> didn't even look down. he's looking at us. stop. >> watch what you're doing, okay? always keep your eye on the food. and then, green onions too. >> they're all even and cooked just the right way. >> how do you know it's about to be finished? >> chop more onions, please. >> you go ahead and get the onions and the scallions into the salad. just toss it a little like that. and then, you go ahead, take a steak. pick up the beautiful leftover sliced steak. and again, it doesn't have any flavor on, apart from the salt and pepper. and you get the beautiful dressing that you made, that you emulsified. drizzle it around. this is leftovers that's worthy of a restaurant meal. >> this is fantastic.
that dressing, i want to take it home and bottle it up. this is so good. >> really good. >> and the thing is, it looks simple. but the taste is insane. >> nfor the recipe, go to today.com/food. >> worth it. this is one you have to go to the website and get. >> so easy. let's look at the weather this week, which is actually going to be a pretty decent week, especially across the northeast. it will take until the end of the week before the rain moves in. heavy downpours down south because of the humidity, as well. looking at scattered showers and storms through the eastern rockies today. and today, they move into the middle of the country. humidity, it's dry out west. and by tend of the week, scattered showers and stormsup and down, t good morning, i am meteorologist bill henley. a warm day ahead, but clouds will be increasing after a good deal of sunshine this morning.
