7:09 am
force? >> to be determined. >> reporter: the candidate himself silent about it. his immigration policy still standing online with trump still struggling to win over minority voters. not just latinos but african-americans from whom he has about 1% support. >> you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. what the hell lose? >> reporter: that argument to black voters delivered to mostly white communities. >> his comments are for all americans, and i live in a white community. i'm white. i was very moved by his comment. in other words, he is trying to tell americans that we can do better. >> reporter: now as trump tries to stay on message for another week and on attack against hillary clinton, one of his top surrogates is raising eyebrows raising questions about clinton's health. >> go online and put down
7:10 am
yourself. >> reporter: clinton's team has shutdown what they call deranged conspiracy theories about her physical fitness. she is facing questions now about why the clinton foundation will stop accepting corporate and foreign donations if she's elected but didn't do so while she was secretary of state. >> what the foundation is saying is that they don't want to become a distraction. they want to go as far possibly can to make sure there's no possible conflict of interest. >> reporter: and this morning clinton's e-mail controversy is again in the headlines as colin powell pushes back against a report clinton told the fbi he advised her on the use of private e-mail. the former secretary of state is telling "people" magazine that clinton's people have been trying to pin it on him. his office acknowledged to nbc that powell did send a memo
7:11 am
started using hers. >> let's bring in james carville, the mastermind behind bill clinton's run to the white house. he's out with a new book. "we're still right, they're still wrong." still blunt. let's pick up where hallie left off. collin powell saying to "people" magazine that clintoneo trying to pin this on him. let's pretend you're in your old job working for hillary clinton. what should she do about this e-mail issue that continues to dog her? >> maybe documentary evidence. a memo. if they have that, they should get that out and show that. i would stop there. we'll see what it is. it was a memo so after there's a piece of paper floating around
7:12 am
in politics and say could you have done this better at this time and done that but right now they're up in the polls and they're ahead and anything that you do in politics you could say that we handled this well. there's always something you could have, would have, should have. >> they're ahead but a reboot on the trump side of things. a softer side of him. he's walking back some of his most controversial policy issues including this mass deportation. how worried campaign be that this is going to actually help him? >> we don't exactly know if he's apologizing but not sure for what. i read a story this morning and his campaign manager says that he's going to redo this. it's not trump himself saying that. i think that everything that i read indicates to me they're not doing things that a campaign does. they don't have the
7:13 am
i don't know. >> reince priebus said by labor day this will be an even race. would you like to take that bet? >> i would like to take that bet but it's not labor day that counts. it's election day that counts and i think she'll be way ahead by then. >> on friday donald trump went to louisiana. you have family in baton rouge. it's a mess down there. he goes down there and looks at the damage firsthand and talks to people before president obama. it wasn't until after his visit that hillary clinton picked the phone and called the governor there. did he appear more presidential in the wake of that tragedy than hillary clinton? >> i think the time line is that she and the governor spoke. the governor had said he would prefer that people come later because they have particularly the president come. i'm grateful that he game. i'm sure the president is going to come on tuesday. the one thing everyone agrees on
7:14 am
has been really good. that's the total agreement. >> i want to ask you a question about the book. you say elections are lost by the base. >> if people don't understand that there's been a clear performance differential between the two parties, they will think there's not a stake in there. i think democrats have a large stake in there. we've had two successful democratic presidency with a as democrats we have to remind our own people of that. that's part of -- this book is more for converted than anything. >> worried about overconfidence and democrats say why bother show up? >> we never get overconfident about anything. knowing mrs. clinton and knowing
7:15 am
they're not going to suffer from little confidence. >> the book is called, "we're still right, they're still wrong." available on amazon and bookstores tomorrow. texas and louisiana could be the next state where zika will spread. a doctor from the national institutes of health says flooding in those states expanded mosquito breeding grounds. he said zika will infections traced to local mosquitos have been found in two parts of south florida including in miami beach. now to the severe weather impacting millions across the country. there were at least 16 reports of tornadoes over the weekend. most of them in ohio, indiana and michigan. emergency crews spent much of the day on sunday clearing trees and power lines that came down on roads there. tens of thousands of homes and businesses had power knocked out. meanwhile in central

struggling to keep a raging wildfire there away from historic castle. the chimney fire burned more than 27,000 acres and at one point was two miles from the castle. farther south evacuation orders have been lifted after a massive fire destroyed more than 100 homes in san bernardino county. people in texas are cleaning up after a weekend of flash flooding in hard hit louisiana expecting more rain today. n, there tomorrow. mr. roker, there's a lot going on. >> that rain you're talking about is going to come down in parts of texas and louisiana looking at more heavy rain and then it moves to the north. you can see heavy showers and thunderstorms firing up between corpus christi and san antonio. activity also firing up along the stationary front into louisiana and arkansas so lower flood threat for louisiana but

7:32 am
that's not me is getting mad and angry and wanting to fight or anything like that. i was upset that we got pulled out of the taxi for i thought something that -- there's no reason for a gun to be pulled out for us for doing nothing. >> for gunnar in his statement to police said you got into a heated argument and discussion with that security guard. >> i was upset. there was no reason for sitting down with a gun pointed to us for nothing that we did. >> at any time during that exchange, ryan, when you were that upset and terrified as you just said, do you think you posed a threat to that security guard that would have made him believe he needed to continue to have that gun out of its holster? >> i think when i got up and i
7:33 am
using some words -- this is bs. we shouldn't be treated like this. there's no way. we want to get back in the car. we want to go back. that's why it got heated. and the guy could probably draw his gun from that. and then once he did, you can definitely see me go like this and that's when we sat down. >> i guess what i'm trying to get at is first version of the more about the mean streets of rio and the version we're hearing now is much more about a negotiated settlement to cover up some dumb behavior. >> and that's why i'm taking full responsibility for it is because i overexaggerated that story and if i never done that, we wouldn't be in this mess. >> how about the people of rio. they dealt with headlines going
7:34 am
comes this story with one of the highest profile u.s. athletes saying i got held up at gunpoint on the streets of rio. what would you say to them now? >> how sorry i am. my deepest apologies. they put on a great games. they did everything. the people of rio, authorities, everyone there put on a great games. and my immature, intoxicated behavior tarnished that a little. >> when you saw the news conference of gunnar and jack being taken off that plane at the airport and you just said to me they didn't damage anything in that gas station and you're sitting at home in the united states safe and sound, how did
7:35 am
i mean, i let my team down. and, you know, i wanted to be there. i don't want them to think that i left and left them to dry because they're my teammates, i definitely wanted to be there. i wanted to help out any way i could. i just wanted to make sure that they were home safe before really sorry about -- i'm embarrassed for myself, my family, especially those guys. usa swimming. the whole olympic games. everyone watching. i was immature and i made a stupid mistake. i'm human. i made a mistake.
7:36 am
still investigating this. the chief executive of the usoc said we're going to have further action on this and not exactly sure what he means by that. >> you can never look inside someone's heart but he sure does seem like he gets it now and is really sorry. >> no question about that. >> take a turn now and get a check of the weather, mr. roker. >> the southwest dealing with some severe weather as well. strong storms. dust storms and we'll of those. those haboobs working their way through. we do look for showers and thunderstorms firing up during the day today. the risk of especially by the afternoon enhanced storms. heavy rain, gusty winds. gully washers. flash floods could occur. we're not talking a lot of rain. quarter inch to half inch. some locally heavier amounts about an inch and then you can see gorgeous day warmer through the plains. fresh breezes in the northeast.
