7:02 am
good morning. nice to have you with us on a wednesday morning. at the top for us this morning, we have the story of the president deciding not to go to denmark after all. he called off his state visit there when he saw his interest in buying greenland rebuffed. that's one of several headlines out of the white house this morning. we have complete coverage, starting with nbc's peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to both of you. the long-planned trip was scheduled for the beginning of next month while the president would already be in europe. overnight, president trump abruptly postponed it indefinitely. two days earlier, the president said buying greenland would be strategically important for the u.s. but it was not, quote, number one on the burner. all of a sudden overnight, he suggested it was the main reason for his visit. this morning, president trump is putting an upcoming trip to denmark on ice after the country's prime minister brushed off his desire to buy greenland. a self-governing country that's
7:03 am
part of the danish kingdom. in a tweet, president trump said, while denmark is a very special country with incredible people, he's postponing his planned trip early next month with the prime minister sed on her statement that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of greenland. adding, the prime minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the united states and denmark by being so direct. >> essentially, it is a large real estate deal. >> reporter: just days ago, the president insisted his visit, after being invited by denmark's queen, was unrelated to greenland. >> we may be going to denmark, not for this reason at all, but we're looking at it. >> reporter: denmark's prime minister in greenland last week ridiculing the idea. of course, greenland is not for sale, she said. adding, thankfully, the time where you buy and sell other countries and populations is over. on monday, the president posting this photo of a gold trump skyscraper towering over a serene arctic village, appearing
7:04 am
to write in jest, i promise not to do this to greenland. the president's decision to scrap the trip seemingly a surprise to the u.s. ambassador to denmark, who only hours earlier tweeted, denmark is ready for the potus visit. partner, ally, friend. an ally that fought alongside the u.s. in afghanistan, where more than 40 danish troops lost their lives, a friendship that perhaps now is a bit frayed. wrve are within the last hour denmark's prime minister said she found it regrettable. a former prime minister writing, is this a joke? deeply insulting to the people of greenland and denmark. savannah and craig? >> it is another dust-up brewing this morning, peter, as you know. the president under fire for comments about jewish-american voters. >> reporter: that's exactly right. the president returned his feud with the muslim congresswomen, talib and omar, yesterday. here's part of his response when
7:05 am
asked about omar's suggestion that the u.s. reconsider its aid to israel, directing this startling message to jewish-americans. >> i think any jewish people that vote for a democrat, i think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty. >> reporter: several jewish groups quickly condemned the president's comments there. some arguing it amounted to an anti-semitic smear. they have dual loyalty and are more committed to israel than they are to their own countries. savannah and craig?savannah andg >> peter alexander, thank you. now to the growing worries about the economy. faced with warning signs over what's to come, president trump says he is now considering tax cuts nbc's chief white house correspondent hallie jackson has that story for us. good morning. >> reporter: craig, good morning. the president insists the cuts he is considering are not linked to those growing economic concerns you mentioned, but keep in mind, how the economy is doing will be central to the president's re-election campaign so now, he's sharing a new idea
7:06 am
to try and boost the economy, although it probably won't happen any time soon accusing his critics of a recession obsession, the president is downplaying a possible downturn in the economy. >> i think the word recession is a word that's inappropriate. certain people in the media are trying to build it up because they'd love to see a recession we are very far from a recession. >> reporter: but he is not dismissing the idea of cutting taxes to help save people money anyway. >> payroll tax is something we think about, and a lot of people would like to see that that very much affects the workers of our country we have a lot of workers >> reporter: only 24 hours earlier, the white house had said a payroll tax cut was not under consideration. according to the president, it is, although not imminently. >> whether or not we do it now or not is -- it's not being done because of recession >> reporter: so what is the payroll tax? it is the 6.2% you pay on what you make that funds programs like social security
7:07 am
when president obama temporarily cut that tax back in 2011, it saved the average family about $1,000 a year. president trump last pledged to cut taxes back during the midterms. >> we're going to be doing a 10% tax cut. another 10% tax cut for the middle class we'll continue to cut your taxes. >> reporter: but congress would have to approve a new cut. house democrats almost certainly won't want to give the president a political win before next year's election. as president trump now acknowledges, it is americans who can feel the pain in the short term to get more leverage over beijing in the long term. >> the fact is, somebody had to take china on. my life would be a lot easier if i didn't take china on >> reporter: remember, while a payroll tax cut might mean you save some money in your pocketbook, it would have other financial implications it would mean a lot less money for social security, and it would also add to the already ballooning deficit craig? >> hallie, on another topic here, gun reform legislation, president trump had advocated perhaps stronger background
7:08 am
checks repeatedly over the last few weeks. he appears to be backtracking now. what happened? >> reporter: that's for sure, craig. you'll remember right after the shootings earlier this month in ohio and texas, the president came out and emphasized the need for what he described as very meaningful background checks that was notable at the time since then, the president has softened his tone. he has also, by the way, had conversations with the head of the nra. now, the president says that we already have strong background checks he is putting the focus instead on mental health issues, craig. >> hallie jackson from the white house for us thank you. when it comes to gun violence, police departments across the country are taking a more aggressive stance now to prevent possible mass shootings. that was vividly on display during an arrest in florida. nbc's gabe gutierrez has the story for us this morning. good morning >> reporter: good morning. newly released body camera video captures the emotional moment a shocked mother learned deputies were arresting her teenage son the sheriff's office in florida released the video to serve as a
7:09 am
reminder that online threats are no joke. >> he's under arrest currently for making a threat to cause a mass shooting. >> reporter: this newly released body camera video shows the moment when a 15-year-old florida boy was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot up his school. authorities say he made the threat in a video game chat room, saying he planned to bring his father's m-15 to school and kill seven people at a minimum he's now facing charges in juvenile court his stunned mother telling police, it was just a joke. >> he's a little boy he's not one of the crazy people out there doing stuff. >> we can't take risks we can't say, all right, we trust him. this guy isn't going to do it. then it happens and we say, we had a chance to stop it. >> i'm telling you, this is not my son. >> reporter: another sign of zero tolerance in indianapolis, where police tracked down a truck driver after a friend claimed he was planning to shoot up a church in tennessee in california, police arrested a
7:10 am
15-year-old girl, accusing her of posting this image of snapchat, a photo of guns for sale, and the message, don't come to school tomorrow. police say she admitted posting it but couldn't explain why. the school's superintendent is now warning students >> whatever your choice might be, whether that's terrorist threats, sexting, vulgarity, all on social media is trackable back to you.>> reporter: these arrests come after police found other credible threats in ohio, florida, and connecticut in just the last week. authorities across the country are on high alert after mass shootings this month in el paso, texas, and dayton, ohio, left 31 people dead. police often aren't sure what the persons making the post are capable of doing, but with kids heading back to school across the country, they say they're taking every threat seriously and taking no chances, savannah. >> understandably, gabe. thank you.
7:11 am
there will be no break today from the oppressive heat wave and severe storms that targeted tens of millions of americans this week. dylan is in for al once again. she's got the very latest. more heat. more storms, huh >> more heat, more storms, that is correct, craig. we are seeing the storms already firing up. north of syracuse, we have severe thunderstorm warnings in effect currently we also have thunderstorms moving through southern vermont, into central massachusetts, also extending back through western pennsylvania that's round one round two develops later this afternoon and into the evening it affects most of new england, extends to new york and philadelphia, too. most of new jersey, as well. large hail, damaging winds we can't rule out a quick tornado with some of the severe storms but the thing with the storms, not everyone will see them this cold front will move in it combines with the heat and the humidity, and you see they're more pop-up in nature. while one town can be hit hard by a storm, the next town over might not see any storm at all keep an eye to the sky if you're outdoors today if you hear the rumbles of thunder, get indoors until the

7:13 am
california coast, and the couple involved filmed the whole thing. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer joins us with the details on this. hey, miguel. good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. the pilot took off from san jose and was flying above half moon bay. his friend flying another plane nearby witnessed the crash and was filming at the time. moments after the aircraft went down, the downed pilot pulled out his phone, as well scary moments in the skies above california tuesday after a small plane crash just south of san francisco. authorities say the pilot, david lesh, and a female companion, were flying near half moon bay when his plane lost power. lesh's friend and fellow pilot was nearby in another plane, filming lesh's aircraft for a midair photo shoot of his plane. a single engine beach craft bonanza. this video capturing the moments lesh's plane hit the water. >> probably 3,000 or 4,000 feet agl. lost power did everything i could to get the motor going again.

grandfather's moving funeral. >> nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. >> reporter: now, she's launching a new george h.w. bush points of light award, honoring her late grandfather's memory by celebrating individuals changing the world. lauren bush lauren is here good morning it is so good to see you. >> morning >> we're having bush withdraw. jenna is on maternity leave. >> glad i could be a stand-in. >> tell me about this award, the points of light award. >> yeah. so we're starting the first ever george h.w. bush points of light award. my grandfather, over 30 years ago, started points of light, and basically every day, did a daily point of light that almost until his passing he'd personally sign. it is something he truly cared about. >> volunteerism, giving back. >> shining a light on those who are lights themselves and giving
8:22 am
back to their community. we thought it was an opportunity to shine an extra light on a few individuals making the world a better place. >> you'll do two well-known people and people from everyday walks of life. >> we really want people of varied ages, varied work globally, and also here in the u.s. yeah, it is going to be really special. >> you know, i was just looking at this, the footage of course, you did the reading at your gampy's funeral. people talked about him and his life one of the things was his humility and service what are your memories >> i mean, so many i think what was such a standout during his passing, but always in being around him, was just how kind and how empathetic and how he really made a point of going out of his way to be kind and make those gestures. to write that letter that was meaningful to someone. to say hello to a waiter to ask them about their family >> i read that he had a kind of -- not a secret, but not many people knew he had a pen pal relationship with a little boy in the philippines. >> that was a total shocker.
8:23 am
it is exactly that it was so illustrative of those kind, amazing gestures he did. even just quietly. i mean, you probably remember when he shaved his head in solidarity with the boy who had cancer >> oh, yeah. a boy he didn't know until that moment. >> yeah. very, very, very special person and human. we miss him a lot. but i think are trying now, as best we can, to sort of carry on in his example this award is definitely a way to do that. >> well, i have a big exclusive this morning i know one of the recipients we can announce. >> yes. >> is -- >> garth brooks. >> garth brooks. why did you choose garth >> we chose garth because he is beyond being extremely talented singer/songwriter, a major philanthropist teammates for kids, his foundation, raised over $100 million for kids causes.
8:24 am
he and his wife, trisha yearwood, go out often and participate in habitat for humanity. >> building houses. >> hands-on volunteers and doing a lot of good. doing it in a way, too, that is humble i think in a way my grandfather would have appreciated. >> to give quietly, not necessarily when everyone is watching garth gave us a statement. he said, the fact this award is a reflection of 41, his beloved barbara, and the work they believed in is the greatest honor. an award is only as good as its recipient. my hope and goal is to make the bush family and honorary chairs proud. garth brooks is the first name on this award. it is cool he mentioned your grandmother, too they were a package deal. >> they were a package deal. though my grandfather's name is the one on the award itself, in my mind, they're just forever interlinked. she herself, you know, she carries on in terms of her philanthropy with literacy and family literacy. she was a very bright point of light.
8:25 am
obviously, a support to my grandfather. >> lauren, thank you so much it is good to see you. thank you. >> thank you, savannah. >> good to see a bush family member all former living presidents are honorary chairs. >> they are. it's special. >> thank you, lauren we'll send it out to dylan. >> we have a lot more coming up, including jill's special steals and deals on hot fall fashions plus, look who else is here. valerie bertinelli, who is going to share a hit recipe. i'm excited for it she was explaining it, and you are going to love it that's after your local news

good morning. 8:26. i'm marcus washington. opponents are already vowing to file suit after the white house this morning unveiled a new plan to loosen detainment rules for migrant families. the plan calls for an overhaul of what's known as the flores agreement. that's a legal settlement limiting the time migrants' families and children can be held even though critics say i.c.e. already routinely ignores those limits. the new plan would also allow more leeway when it comes to care for detainees. president trump has been fighting the current immigration standards ever since taking office. we want to look at that morning commute for you.
