7:11 am
the associate press' repeated voicemails and e-mails. >> peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in nicolle wallace and steve kornacki. good morning. on the tax situation, if you listen to democrats, they say this report is a bombshell. it proves he may not have paid federal income taxes for up to 18 years. listen to trump and surrogates are saying, no, he is a business genius who understands taxes. what are the voters going to say? >> listen. i think the truth lies somewhere in the middle. for a normal campaign and a normal candidate really big deal. for a guy who's running as a do scoundrel -- his essential purpose of running for the candidacy, i have worked these rigged systems, i have bought politicians, i have basically benefited from a corrupt tax code. so you can trust me to fix it and dismantle it. that's his message. so i think he's in dire straits right now because of his temperament and his tweets. >> most of the headlines focused on the fact that these tax
7:12 am
paid no federal income tax. to me, the larger issue for him would be, here's a guy who's running on being a brilliant businessman who took a loss of many almost $1 billion in one year. a guy whose selling point is i'm going to run the government the way i run my business. >> i had the same reaction, too. ultimately in terms of the possibility of not paying taxes for two decades, that is a bombshell. on the other hand, a lot of people probably s this is the sort of character that donald trump presents himself as. i do think his campaign is out there. you've heard that line "genius." chris christie and rudy giuliani were saying it. i think they're probably overselling it that way. the suggestion is you can get high-fives for it but i do think there was an opening here for trump to say, look, not saying you should like this, i'm saying you should realize this is a bad system, i recognize it is a bad
7:13 am
have put in place and that i want to open up. i do think there would be an opening. >> this was leaked. these three pages of that tax return from 1995 were sent to the "new york times." they say there was some sort of postmark on them that identified trump tower so that's either an insider or someone with a flair for the dramatic. >> right. we heard from one of the "new york times" reporters this morning on "morning joe" that there is an investigation under way to figure out how that stamp ended up on the envelope. old school the way these documents ended up in "the new york times" in-box. they wrote on the envelope that they came from trump tower. on the campaign you have to deal with the situation you have. they have to explain this billion dollar loss and why they haven't paid taxes but there will also be a parallel operation under way to figure out how these documents left trump tower. >> that's a criminal issue"the
7:14 am
send it. >> i would warn the trump campaign if they spend too much time arguing about how they got out it looks like they're trying to hide something which is in direction contradiction to rudy giuliani and chris christie calling it genius. >> all right, guys. thank you. the only vice presidential debate tomorrow night, live coverage starts at 9:00 p.m. eastern, 6:00 pacific. turning now to the deadly train crash in new jersey last week. it happened in hobokhoboken. investigators are have now interviewed the engineer who was at the controls but they've run into a problem when it comes to the train's black boxes. nbc's tom costello has that part of the story for us. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this train station is so unstable, investigators have been using a drone to survey the train in its final resting place. this morning we still don't have much new information about how fast this train was going or in fact what happened. >> reporter: this morning, photos from the ntsb showing the
7:15 am
kept investigators from gaining access to much of the train. over the weekend they did interview engineer tommy gallagher who told investigators he'd gotten plenty of sleep the night before the crash. he said his cell phone was stored in his backpack during the trip and the train and brakes were working normally. >> he said when he checked the speedometer he was operating at 10 miles per hour when entering the station track. the engineer says he has no memory of the floor of the cab. >> reporter: 10 miles per hour is the posted speed limit but witnesses say the train was going much faster. another setback for the ntsb, the first black box retrieved from the locomotive wasn't working. no recording of the train's actual speed or braking action. investigators hope a second black box still inside the train wreckage captured that data. meanwhile, the body of the 34-year-old mother who died in

york times" has donald trump facing questions about his personal finances. the paper released part of the republican nominee's 1995 state income tax filings in new york, new jersey and connecticut. they appear to show he reported a net loss of more than $900 million. according to experts hired by the paper, that could have allowed him to pay no federal income taxes for up to 18 years. trump's campaign says he has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes over the years. now he is the most famous person in ohio. a crucial swing state. lebron james is weighing in on the race throwing his support behind hillary clinton. in an editorial for "busy insider," james says hillary is running on the message of hope and unity that we need. it is worth noting, several polls show clinton trailing donald trump among ohio voters. now back to this storm, matthew, one of the strongest atlantic hurricanes in years. it is bearing down on haiti. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in

7:33 am
we can't rule out at this point a direct hurricane impact in florida and we can't rule out impacts, potentially significant, farther up the east coast. everyone on the east coast needs to watch this cashfulrefully. but it is far enough out right now we don't have any watches or warnings out for the u.s. there is a possibility it comes closer to the coast than we are currently forecasting. possibility based on some other models it is farther offshore and impacts along the u.s. coast would be a lot less. so fortunately, even though theres is annoying to have to wait to see how this turns out, we do have the luxury of time to be able to think through what we're going to do if those watches and warnings are issued and if emergency managers give some instructions later in the week. >> dr. rick knabb at the national hurricane center. 130-mile-per-hour winds moving north at 5 miles per hour. it will thread the needle between cuba and haiti. we are looking at by saturday
