7:01 am
tonight, we'll talk to the woman who will introduce him and ask can he gets things back on track today thursday, july 21st, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is a special edition of "today" at the republican national convention with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from cleveland. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today." it's thursday morning. we're here at the republican convention here in cleveland and who says convention are boring and scripted affairs and nothing happens. >> take the word boring off of the list. it's not boring at all. it's the fourth and final day of the convention and should be a big one for donald trump. this morning it is that snub, his primary rival ted cruz, delivering a snub that everyone is talking about. >> it was quite a moment on the floor. i was there. cruz was booed and then donald trump sweeps in and steals the moment. by the
7:02 am
trump. >> ted cruz had the room for the bulk of that speech until that moment when he did not endorse. >> the crowd didn't like that one bit. we have a lot to get to. let's start with peter alexander. >> reporter: so much for party unity. ted cruz squeezing in one last jab at donald trump as trump, a billionaire and reality tv star, gets prepared to face the biggest audience of his life. ahead of donald trump's night, an even billed as the republican ticket's debut. >> i accept your nomination to run and serve as vice president of the united states of america. >> reporter: trump joining indiana governor mike pence on stage for an air kiss before trump walked of
7:03 am
again. >> reporter: overshadowing their trium triumphant moment, a cruz missile. >> i want to congratulate donald trump on winning the nomination last night. >> after a rousing speech, ted cruz refusing to enforce his party's nominee. >> don't stay home in november. stand and speak and vote your conscience. >> reporter: the convention floor erupting in a chorus of loud boos. the trump family watching from the vip box in silent. >> i appreciate the enthusiasm of the new york delegation. >> reporter: as cruz was jeered off stage, his wife was escorted off the floor after concerns about her safety. trump stepped on the end of cruz's speech. >> wow. wow.
7:04 am
words what most were thinking before showering his father in praise. >> you are my hero. you are my best friend. you are the next president of the united states. >> newt gingrich offering a rebuke of cruz's comments. >> to paraphrase ted cruz, if you want to protect the constitution of the united states, the only possible candidate this fall is the trump/pence republican ticket. >> reporter: as for pence, displaying warmth and humor. >> for those of you who don't know me, which is most of you -- >> reporter: taking on trump's democratic opponent. >> reporter: hillary clinton wants a better title and i would, too, if i was always america's secretary of the status quo. when donald trump becomes president of the united states of america, the change
7:05 am
huge. >> reporter: one example, trump talking to "the new york times" this morning saying as president he wouldn't automatically come to the defense of nato allies as required by the alliance's charter. if russia attacks their baltic neighbors, he would decide whether to come to aid after reviewing if countries fulfilled their obligations to us. that was one more blockbuster development on a week full of them. clinton campaign blasting the comments overnight saying the president is supposed to be the leader of the free world. donald trump doesn't even believe in the free world. looking ahead to trump's speech tonight, i spoke to his son eric trump on the floor behind me and says the whole experience has been surreal but is confident his father will deliver tonight saying "it's going to be a good night." >> let's get more on how ted cruz's nonendorsement is playing with delegates, donors and donald trump himself. nbc's hallie jackson has that part of the
7:06 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. we spent most of ted cruz's speech in the texas section where delegates were on their feet the entire time. when ted cruz said those wordsinwords "vote your conscious," there was anger, shock and another episode of chaos here in cleveland. donald trump's review now in. mr. trump, any reaction to ted cruz tonight? that was a remarkable moment? what did you think. >> i loved it. >> reporter: trying to brush it off, wow, ted cruz got booed off the speech. i saw his speech two hours early but let him speak anyway. no big deal. trump supporters think otherwise. >> ted cruz showed america what he really is. he's a fraud. he's a liar. he's self-centered and disqualified himself to ever be considered president of the united states. >> i thought it was an awful performance bom
7:07 am
showed himself tonight to not be a man of his word. >> reporter: cruz returning to his hotel overnight to hugs and cheers. some texas delegates supportive of his on-stage stand. >> this isn't my party. we don't do this to each other. we might disagree. we can talk it out. we don't do this to each other and we certainly don't do it to a u.s. senator's wife. >> reporter: the trump batting down questions about party unity. >> everyone in here has the sense to realize the number one goal is to make sure we beat hillary clinton. >> cruz and trump's relationship over the last year a roller coaster ride. the texas senator embracing trump in the early part of the primary tweeting "he's terrific. #dealwithit. >> we call him lying ted. we call him lying ted. >> reporter: coming to a head after trump retweeted an unflatri
7:08 am
wife. >> you're a sniveling coward. i'm going to beat him. >> reporter: he didn't beat trump in indiana. the cruz campaign final blow. >> we gave it everything we've got. but the voters chose another path. >> reporter: coming just hours after trump insinuated cruz's father played a part in the assassination of john f. kennedy. >> this man is a pathological liar. >> reporter: cruz's message here on stage aimed not just at some of the delegates here but at conservative grassroots republicans around the country. still cruz may face fallout from some big money republicans with reports this morning he may have been denied entry to one of the donor suites here in the arena. matt, savannah? >> paul manafort, good morning to you. anything happen last night? peter king says it was a disgrace and he's a liar.
7:09 am
awful and selfish speech. i heard a delegate say let's call him judist cruz. do you agree with the above? >> he wanted to demonstrate to the american people that he views this primary process as over. he invited his opponents to speak at this convention. his invitation had no conditions. people who spoke said in various capacities supporting the republican ticket, voting for him and endorsing him. ted cruz took a different path. >> two schools of thought. you guys are crazy and that you knew when he said those words that would be the reaction on the floor and it would be one of the more unifying moments of the convention so far. >>'m
7:10 am
as far as i'm concerned, the party is unified. last night despite what senator cruz did, the party came together because they see that donald trump is making an effort. a great introduction of vice president to be pence. you saw the speech by governor pence and tonight you'll see a fantastic speech by mr. trump. >> you said in the last 24 hours that ted cruz you thought would be part of this campaign moving forward. i would assume this morning you will retract those words. >> it's up to ted cruz and not me. >> you would let him be part of the campaign? >> our position is we want to embrace all republicans to work and support the trump/pence ticket. >> since he betrayed that good will he just talked about? >> he used bad judgment and made a mistake. i think he was not respectful to the invitation by the convention to speak and understood the responsibilities for someone in his position and he didn't meet
7:11 am
we talked about tuesday morning, the morning after melania trump's speech where it was widely believed she plagiarized portions of that speech you came on this show and said there was no plagiarizing. there was no cribbing. you even went as far as to blame hillary clinton. we now know in the last 24 hours it was a mistake on the part of a speech writer. that person has taken the blame for it. when you said when hillary clinton is threatened by a female first thing she does is try to destroy that person. would you offer secretary clinton an apology for blaming her? >> first of all, you have to put the situation in context. it wasn't a speech writer. this is someone not part of the campaign. >> part of the trump organization. >> i didn't know she was involved in the process. when i spoke to melania trump she said, believes and still does she didn't put those words in there and didn't know they were words from michelle obama. >> that statement says the exact opposite. p
7:12 am
fact melania had -- the question isn't whether she did or didn't. it's a matter of candor and whether you know those words came from michelle obama's speech. >> i did not know. i was told by mrs. trump and i believe mrs. trump and i think she believes she didn't personally put those words in the speech. we didn't even know -- i don't know of her existence. they asked speech writers if they did it. she said no. mrs. trump said no. >> huge night for your candidate tonight. what do you want him to say? >> he's going to speak to the american people. he understands the magnitude of the speech. he understands that this is his moment to speak to 40 or 50 million people and present his vision of the country. during the course of the campaign he's distinguished himself from republicans as far as getting the nomination but now he's going to distinguish himself as hillali
7:13 am
talk about change versus the establishment and he's the change agent. >> thank you for your time this morning. appreciate it. given last night's chaos, tonight's theme is well timed. it's called make america one again. the gop saying speakers will tackle ways to turn challenges into opportunities and focus on what unites us and not what divides us. >> highlight of the evening, donald trump accepting the republican party's nomination for president. he'll be introduced by his daughter, ivanka. we'll speak to her later. >> let's bring in nicole wallace and mike murphy. what happened last night? >> something we've never seen before. it's one thing to not endorse trump and pull a lightning bolt out of your pocket and threw it between trump's eyes. the question for now if there is a trump debacle, will cruz be able to say i was purity on ideology and on trump.
7:14 am
it does not help. >> nicole, do you take a different view that somehow some way this is a party more united than ever now? >> i think that cruz accomplished what the trump campaign has not been able to do so far. he managed to unite more republicans behind trump. what he did was equivalent of going into someone's living room, breaking the furniture and stealing the food out of the fridge before you run out. it was bad manners. we were in the room. that room was behind ted cruz until he got to that moment when he just put the knife in donald trump's front. >> i want to talk about donald trump's speech in a second. can we spend one moment on staging again. we talked about the staging of the vp announcement a couple days ago. the moment last night there seemed to be a lack of coordination as mike pence was ready to leave the stage and donald trump came up. was there an attempt to embrace but then they left each other. what's going on
7:15 am
>> for the second time this morning let me defend the trump campaign. he won because he's an outsider. you're supposed to grab your running mate's hand and put it above your head. he won because he has no idea what to do. he hasn't built a campaign around him. this is what it looks like when you run a pirate ship instead of a normal campaign. >> on the other hand, if there's anything trump really knows how to do it's to create an image and create a moment. we saw that entrance the other night. what do you think about that? >> i think the rule book of the trump campaign is to tear up the rule book. a lot of rules are there because they work. the narrative of this convention has been train wreck so the pressure on trump tonight to really perform is a mess. >> in an interview with "the new york times" when he asked what he wants people to take away from this convention donald trump said "the fact that i'm very well liked." now, generally speaking isn't it true that a candidate wants people to take away that i have theis
7:16 am
this country forward for the next four or eight years. what do you make of that comment? >> that was an extraordinary interview. i'm sure we'll talk about it more in the days to come. he laid out outside the mainstream ideas on foreign policy. i'm told the candidate will not double down on any ideas tonight. tonight will be about the theme that got him here. this idea of being liked animates his entire candidacy. we heard the first ten months of his campaign he would start by reading out all of the polls. our polls and others. the problem with the analysis and with that as strategy is you need to leave being liked by more people than liked you when you got here. i'm not sure if he accomplished that. >> the me, me, me school of presidential campaigning has to end or he won't get out of where he's at now and this nato thing is equally big. you can't have a casual commitment. donald trump is going to have to say something serious. the whole fly by the seat of pants thing is showing up in policy and that can be

7:18 am
computer systems crashed. the backup failed. then the restoration attempts failed. problems only grew worse through the day. at one point the airline held all flights still on the ground as it tried to work through the issues. ticket agents were writing out tickets by hand. the lines inside the terminals stretching for hours with tens of thousands of passengers delayed or missing their flights. this morning flight aware shows just under 200 flights canceled before 7:00 a.m. east coast time today. the airline says it still is in recovery mode. it's urging customers to check the status of your flights online before arriving at the airports but it could be another rough day as it tries to accommodate everyone that missed a flight yesterday. >> tom cost oello in washington thank you. >> let's talk about hey, guys, thanks so much. i want to show you this g

tonight as she introduced her father to the delegates. we caught up with ivanka to talk about her speech and adjusting to life on the campaign trail. if i told you a year ago that you would be at the republican national convention, you would be introducing your father who is steps away from the presidency, what would you have said? >> i am not surprised in retrospect because i've never seen my father apply himself with determination towards a goal and not achieve it. last night actually standing alongside both of my brothers when the count went over the top during roll call and he was officially declared the republican nominee, i got very emotional. it's been an unbelievable journey. i'm incredibly proud of my father. >> are you nervous about introducing him tomorrow night? >> i'm terrified. i am terrified. i have never spoken in a stadium like
7:32 am
sure i do a great job for him. you know, it's a real honor and privilege that he asked me to do this. i think it's a testament to him as a parent. >> how did he ask you? >> in a pretty casual way like my father does things like that. ivanka, would you like to do it. you'll be fine. don't worry. it will be great. >> what do you want to convey tomorrow about your dad? >> i know the man as a parent and i can share how he raised me and my siblings and the father he was. but also i can talk about the man he is as a leader and entrepreneur and business builder and visionary. knowing him from those two very different vantage points but seeing similar attributes transcend both words gives me a unique perspective in that regard. >> there's been controversy in the last couple days because melania gave her
7:33 am
campgn acknowledge d there were parts similar to michelle obama's speech. what have the last two days been like for her and for you and what's your reaction to this? >> i love melania so much and i'm proud of the job she did. she's a very private person and for her to come out on that stage and speak from the heart and share her story about coming to this country, this is such a personal experience for her. she shared it in such a graceful and articulate way. i am enormously impressed with her ability to do that and have great respect for it. >> have you developed that politician's daughter's thick skin yet? >> the last year has helped. definitely a little thicker than it was at the beginning of this. i think the most helpful thing for me is the fact that i know who my father is as a person so a lot of labels get
7:34 am
vicious things. i know the truth about my father. i couldn't support my father if i didn't know those things to be pure fiction. i know the man. that gives me great comfort. >> your brother went after hillary clinton. he definitely went on the attack. should we expect that from you? >> i'm going to speak about my father. that's really what i want to be talking about. that's obviously what i know most intimately. that's where my focus will be. >> how do you feel about the convention and what you hear and what you see? you're on the floor. you hear the excitement. you hear the chants. sometimes you hear chants like "lock her up" or "guilty." are you comfortable with that? >> it's exciting. it's quite a production. it's definitely a different experience. never been to something like this. >> what are you going to tell yourself as you walk out on stage thursday
7:35 am
>> don't trip? after i get to the podium, you know, i think i'm really comfortable with my speech because it comes from my heart and hopefully i'm able to deliver it in an articulate way. i think at the end of the day i know i'll go home to my children and they'll love me as much regardless. even if i bomb, my father won't hold it against me. >> i understand why she said she's terrified. not that she doesn't know the subject better than anyone. it's a huge stage. >> i think anyone would have their hearts in their throats. a huge stage right there. you have thousands of people to say nothing of the audience of home. a big honor but also a big job. >> look forward to watching that tonight. >> in our next half hour, we'll hear from eric trump. this morning he has harsh words for ted cruz over what happened on that convention stage last night coming up in our next half hour. >> over to al for a check of the weather. >> thanks so all right, guys.

8:03 am
peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. make no mistake this has been a dramatic at times chaotic convention. no better example than what happened last night. after a powerful and resounding speech that lasted 23 minutes, ted cruz it became clear would not be endorsing donald trump, the republican audience especially the new york delegation, would have none of it. cruz faced boos and jeers as he walked offstage. at that very moment, donald trump arrived in the arena to loud applause. there was that moment as it took place. i just spoke to trump's son, eric, about donald trump's speech scheduled for tonight. he says it will be honest. it will be optimistic. and during the course of our conversation just within the last 30 minutes, i asked him which donald trump we'll see tonight. >> i can't take the us suspenset of tonight. i can't give it away. you're going to see a man that
8:04 am
he's not doing this for fun. this is not a joke. he put his life aside to run for the most powerful office in the world. this isn't easy stuff. it's stressful stuff. it's incredibly hard work. i give him amazing credit for putting aside his life to do this whole process. he's passionate about it. this country has given him everything in the world and he wants to give back to a nation that's really done everything for us as a family. >> reporter: that moment last night when ted cruz delivered those remarks. you weren't here. we saw your siblings. they were stone face. what do you think? >> i think the audience spoke. when you have 22,000 people booing you at your own party's convention, i don't know -- >> did it make your dad look sympathetic? >> it was silly. don't come on stage if you don't want to endorse or be supportive. i think he lost a lot of political credibility yesterday. i think he did a lot to -- maybe a lot of people have been calling it political suicide.
8:05 am
you have 22,000 people booing you in a room of your peers, that's a pretty bad thing for your career and i heard he didn't make friends in washington d.c. he didn't have many friends in this room last night. >> reporter: a night for the final night of this convention. two big moments. donald trump of course the highlight. but introducing him tonight of course his daughter ivanka. i asked eric about his big sister. he said she will be elegant. she'll be smart and she'll be poised and given all of the conversation this week about melania trump and those lifted lines from michelle obama's speech a couple years back in 2008 and don trump jr. who had words that had been used in magazine article a couple months ago. eric tells me that his dad wrote much of this speech. some of it with help but put in tremendous thought and passion into the remarks that he delivers tonight. matt and savannah? >> all right, peter. thank you very much. by the way, you can catch more of the convention throughout the day on msnbc and then live in prime time 10:00

vietnam including a close friend. >> i will not accept the nomination. >> president johnson was forced not to run for re-election. >> martin luther king was shot and killed tonight. >> dr. martin luther king and bobby kennedy were murdered. the democratic convention in chicago was chaos in the hall and in the streets. richard nixon was taking the gop south. george wallace played the race card. and racial uprisings were everywhere. this obviously has been a very tough summer for relationships between african-americans and police in the country but it's nothing compared to what happened in 1968. there were effectively wars in detroit, omaha, washington, d.c., and here in cleveland in an area known as the
8:37 am
neighborhood. the black nationalist had a home here and police suspected he was storing weapons of all kinds. the fight broke out and the fight quickly became a war. it was war so violent cleveland's black mayor barred white police from the neighborhood and brought in the national guard. it didn't work. it went on for three days. nine people were killed. policemen and black nationalists. a major cleveland project to rebuild black neighborhoods started before the uprising came to an abrupt and bloody end. it was that kind of year. the other thing about that time, quite honestly, it was not just all that we're seeing there but there was a cultural revolution. the young people were defying everything their parents stood for, the generation i call the greatest generation. they rejected it. it was a time of much more
8:38 am
right now. >> you say back then people thought the world was coming apart. you did as well. people say that now and it's nice to know that we recovered from 1968 and hopefully have the same chance of recovering coming out of this. >> the inherent strengths of this country are there and we're not paying attention to the great strength of america at the moment is out there in the cities away from washington. they're doing very well. very strong governors in both parties. cities are doing well. economy is beginning to work in those areas. most of all, they have to take a deep breath and say remember who we are. >> nice to keep it in perspective. thank you for helping us do that this morning. >> we're going to make a turn. up next, oscar winner alicia vikander stops by studio 1a. she'll talk about joining the wildly popular "jason bourne" franchise. first on a thursday morning, this is "today" on nbc.

8:44 am
have a fantastic story and a role that's engaging but it's really the visionary behind it and the people involved making it that makes the film. the actors and the filmmakers involved. >> this was shot in las vegas. you get into las vegas. you get into a cab. the cab driver tells you a few things you should know of what's happening in vegas right now. >> and you know, you could be lucky. you might just see matt damon on the street. >> where were you for that action scene? >> i wasn't in that scene sadly. but they blew up 170 cars in the scene. normally you assume that everything is screened so i went

five years ago, on any given night, you know, almost 75,000 veterans experienced homelessness. we have reduced those numbers by almost half, but despite the great progress that we have achieved, there are still too many veterans who still need a place to live. this project is a comprehensive rehabilitation of the center's facility here in downtown boston to create permanent supportive housing, transitional housing and service spaces, a facility that really delivers on society's commitment to people who have served in the military. citi® was the natural partner because they were able to come with the resources, both the capital resources and also the human resources, the experts in their field, and without citi's partnership we probably would not be in construction right now. the goal for us in this project is to be more effective in the services that we provide so that veterans who have committed to put their lives at risk to protect this country have a home in this country.
