7:03 am
meetings between president obama and rule castro. they announced they would begin normalizing ties. >> over time it is possible for us to turn the page and develop a new relationship between our two countries. >> reporter: last august the american embassy was reopened and a u.s. flag raised in havana. since then secretary of state john kerry has traveled to the island and just this week u.s. and cuban officials signed a deal to resume commercial air traffic for the first time in if i have decades. tourists are not visit the island and trade cannot resume until they left the embargo. republican presidential candidates marco rubio and ted cruz both of cuban descent were quick to pounce on the announcement. rubio saying he would not go if he were president. >> not if it's not a fee cuba. the problem with the cuban government this is not a communist dictatorship it is an anti-american communist dictatorship. >> i was saddened to hear that, i wasn't surprised.
7:04 am
>> reporter: the white house says the president will meet with cubans from all walks of life. guys, back to you. >> thank you. you heard some of the republican candidates talking about cuba there, something else that has them talking our new poll that shows ted cruz now leading nationally. we have complete coverage of that race and the battle on the democratic side. we begin with nbc national correspondent peter alexander, he is in south carolina ahead of saturday's republican primary. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. donald trump most importantly is holding on to a commanding lead here in south carolina. but nationally this race may have reached a turning point. take a look at our new nbc news "wall street journal" poll that shows for the first time nationally ted cruz is leading donald trump by a couple of points. here is south carolina ted cruz is savoring his new perch atop the republican field. >> the sound you're hearing is the sound of screams coming from washington, d.c. >> reporter: with the gop line up slipging after the new
7:05 am
hampshire primary the poll now shows a dramatic shift from last month. cruz up 8 points, trump dropping 7. >> i have never done well in the "wall street journal" poll. i think somebody at the "wall street journal" doesn't like me. >> reporter: two days to south carolina roets. >> this is a guy who raises the bible and yet he tells fibs, he thels lies. >> reporter: the trump/cruz feud is escalating. cruz daring trump to sue him over this ad attacking trump's past comments on abortion. >> i am pro choice in every respect. >> we cannot trust donald trump with these serious decisions. >> reporter: trump's lawyers call it defamatory insisting he now opposes abortion. trump taunting cruz before backing off his threat during an msnbc town hall. >> i have had great success in business, i've had great success with lawsuits, i've had great success in i think so i do and i don't know that we will have a lawsuit but we certainly want to keep somebody honest. >> reporter: here in south carolina trump still dominates with cruz well behind, but marco
7:06 am
rubio is picking up steam and another critical endorsement for the most popular pop tigs in the state, governor nikki haley. >> we say that every day is a great day in south carolina. ladies and gentlemen, if we elect marco rubio, every day will be a great day in america. >> reporter: not a great day for jeb bush who just 24 hours earlier told nbc news haley's endorsement would be the most powerful one in the state. bush now acknowledging his disappointment but remaining defiant. >> it's all been decided apparently. the pundits have made it all -- it's all decided we don't have to go vote i guess. i should stop campaigning maybe. it's all done. that's not how democracy works, right? >> reporter: and here is something you don't see every day, jeb bush chest bumping his brother the former president back stage after w.'s endorsement earlier this week, part of a new campaign video
7:07 am
just posted at the end jeb is heard saying, thanks. i love you. savannah and willie back to you. >> i don't think the president was ready for that chest bump he got knocked back a rail bit. peter alexander, thanks. let's talk about the democrats. hillary clinton and bernie sanders working overtime to court minority voters ahead of saturday's nevada caucuses. tonight they will face off in las vegas at a town hall event on msnbc. nbc's andrea mitchell is already in position. andrea, good morning. >> good morning, savannah. with reports that clinton's taupe donors have campaigned to her campaign with its grass roots effort hillary clinton and bernie sanders are facing off here in nevada, a state she really needs to win after her bruising loss to him in new hampshire. tonight hillary clinton and bernie sanders will be appealing to nevada voters during a democratic town hall on msnbc. with just two days before the caucuses clinton's lead in the silver state has disappeared. a new poll has her just one point ahead of sanders, 48 to
7:08 am
47%. and nationally things could be getting worse. ones holding a commanding lead among women clinton's favorable is shrinking now just 6 points ahead according to a new quinnipiac poll compared to her double digit lead a few weeks ago. now both candidates are reaching out to african-american and latino voters with clinton spending wednesday on the south side of chicago focusing on racial barriers and the problem of police violence against minorities. >> we have to break down the barriers of big owe tree. >> she also accused of sanders of waifrg support for president obama in 2012. >> even tried to advocate for somebody to run against him when he ran for reelection. >> sanders is looking ahead to south carolina. >> i think we've got a real good shot in nevada and i honestly believe we will do a lot, lot better in south carolina. >> hoping to pull off an upset and show that he can win in states with more minorities than predominantly white new hampshire. >> the momentum is with us and i
7:09 am
think on election day people will be very surprised about how well we do. >> with the race heading into the south and west, today clinton is reclosing a new ad aimed at nevada's hispanic voters taking on the issue of deportation. >> let me do the worrying. i will do all the worrying. >> just a few hours ago clinton stopped to treat workers on the overnight shift on her hotel on the las vegas strip. whoever wins saturday in these caucuses in nevada will have momentum going forward next week to south carolina's primary and beyond. in what is clearly going to be a prolonged primary battle between these two democrats. willie and savannah. >> andrea mitchell in las vegas. thank you. let's turn to mark halperin co-host of with all due respect which also airs on msnbc. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's talk polls this morning. let's start with bloomberg politics latest poll because it looks at south carolina. here is what we see. 36% donald trump far and away the leader and then this tight
7:10 am
race for second or third. is south carolina poised to be the state that win knows the field as we often hear about in politics? >> i think it will. look, donald trump is way ahead here in our poll and other polls. i think a big story is how large is trump's lead. that's one. the other thing to look at is this real match between marco rubio and jeb bush. the former protege, the former governor of florida, the two of them before i thought maybe they both could come out of south carolina, now increasingly even according to both camps whoever is ahead here in south carolina on saturday is probably going to get to go on into the finals, whoever is behind to get out of the race quickly. >> we have this new nbc "wall street journal" poll that shows nationally donald trump for the first time since november not leading, 2 points behind ted cruz, 28 to 26 with marco rubio at 17 behind. it is as we've talked about different than a lot of the national polls we've seen that showed trump with a lead 15 to 20 points, but what do you read into that number in terms of ted cruz at least? >> look, the nbc "wall street
7:11 am
journal" poll is a good poll normally but even a good poll can occasionally be off. i think that poll doesn't reflect the fact that trump still has the lead. what it does reflect is ted cruz even though he's being hit by donald trump and marco rubio has moved up, he's consolidated a lot of support in the conservative wing of the party and i think there's no doubt that ted cruz while still behind trump nationally probably is a finalist in this contest as well regardless of how he does on saturday here in south carolina. >> and let's talk about the democrats. saturday they have a caucus in nevada. we've seen polling out of nevada that suggests it is a dead heat there. how do you think hillary clinton has changed her message if at all in the wake of what happened in new hampshire? >> well, she's really honed into on this message that andrea talked about saying that bernie sanders is not practical, that he didn't support president obama and that people shouldn't vote for him because his ideas can't be made into law, can't be made into reality. that is a message that's a very practical message.
7:12 am
does it stop bernie sanders' momentum? does it appeal to people's hopes and dreams? that's still an open question and andrea was quite right leading into the notion that saturday's caucuses are important for momentum into south carolina and into march. we will see a long protracted clinton/sanders battle the challenge for her is to blunt this momentum which is still a powerful force within the party. >> mark halperin, thank you. now to a desperate hunt underway for dangerous radioactive material missing in iraq. officials fearing it could be used as a weapon by terrorists. nbc's kelly cobiella has more on this. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: iraqi security forces have been searching day and night for months for this case, the size of a laptop, holding potentially deadly radioactive material, exposure to this stuff could cause death in a matter of hours and the iraqis are worried it could fall into the wrong hands. it's a nightmare scenario, isis packing radioactive material
7:13 am
into explosives, making a so-called dirty bomb. now a key ingredient used by the oil industry to check for leaks in pipes has vanished in southern iraq. an iraqi government document seen by nbc news confirms that a highly dangerous radioactive material, i remember id yum 192 was schoolen from a storage facility linked to weatherford oil company in november. u.s.-based weatherford oil told nbc news we do not own, operate or control sources of i rid yum 192 or the bunker where the sources are stored and that a different company held the material. >> we have not seen any indication the material in question has been acquired by daesh or any other terrorist groups in the region, but obviously we continue to take these reports very seriously. >> reporter: the state department says there is no evidence that isis which holds mosul in northern iraq but no
7:14 am
territory in sheath dominated bass ra pulled off the theft. but at this point the iraqis don't know who did. security sources told reuters it looked like an inside job. no broken locks, no signs of forced entry. >> interesting. kelly cobiella in london on a very important story for us this morning. thanks. apple is getting support in its industry this morning in its fight against a court order to hack into a phone used by one of the san bernardino shooters. it's a request that apple vehemently opposes and is fighting. abc national correspondent miguel almaguer has the latest. >> reporter: it's a device so many of us have, an iphone like this one that locks after a set period of time and requires a four-digit code to open it. this is what the fbi can't get past, and apple says if it helps investigators do just that, it could create a dangerous precedent for everyone who owns one of these. two months after the terror
7:15 am
attack that left 14 dead in san bernardino the iphone used by gunman syed farook is setting off a debate over privacy and security. >> there is a lot of issues. i can see the fbi's point, but you can also see apple's point of view. >> reporter: with fbi investigators unable to unlock the popular 5c like this one a federal judge has ordered apple to create new software to unlock the iphone, a system to bypass security functions so it can be scoured for evidence. >> justice has to be served. people's lives were lost and i feel strongly that that's the moral thing to do. >> reporter: apple outraged by the terror attack says they have been assisting the fbi but plans to fight the journal's order. in an open letter ceo tim cook says, creating a, quote, back door to bypass encryption is something he says they do not have and something we consider too dangerous to create. privacy advocates say building a master key to bypass security
7:16 am
will be exploited and puts your privacy at risk. google's ceo also weighed in on the issue wednesday, tweeting, we give law enforcement access to databaseded on valid leaguel orders but that's wholly different than requiring companies to enable hacking of customer devices and data. could be a troubling precedent. the fbi believes they will lose the phone's data permanently after ten failed attempts to open it and says they're running out of options. for family members of the victims like this man who lost his wife there is no debate. >> when you're dealing with national security that should come first. people's lives matter. >> while the privacy versus security debate rages on and apple prepares for a likely appeal in court legislators say law could be introduced to prevent phone companies from protecting data in cases like this and that could be the next step. back to you. >> thank you so much. we want to know what our viewers
7:17 am
think about this. should apple help the fbi unlock the shooter's iphone. go to and weigh in. >> a big debate on that over the last 24 hours. a strange story out of los angeles where a hospital has rained a ransom to hackers who were holding their computer hostage. they paid $17,000 when it fell victim to ran some wear. bit coin is an online currency that is hard to trace. the hospital's ceo called it the most official way to end the problem. neither law enforcement nor the hospital gave any indication of who might be behind this attack. >> that is a little strange. let us turn to al rocker. >> we have a lot of warmth to talk about coming up in the next several days. let's show you what we have. right now record warm weather today stretching from the plains all the way into the central and southern plains upwards of 30 degrees above average. look for records in rapid city, denver, dodge and wichita. also stretching all the way down

7:30. thursday morning, february 18, 2016. that is the view from the top of the rock. ted cruz has inched ahead of donald trump nationally in our new nbc news wall street journal poll. cruz first choice of 28%. >> many candidates took part in town halls in south carolina last night ahead of saturday's primary. one topic of discussion, apple's fight against court order by fbi to help unlock the iphone.
7:31 am
>> i think security first. >> anytime you are dealing with issues of security and civil liberties you have to balance them both. i think we can walk and chew gum at the same time, protect ourselves from terrorists. >> apple's argument is that the order sets dangerous precedent. another sign of the foreign relations between u.s. and cuba. president obama plans to travel there next month. this will be the first visit to the island by sitting president since 1928. fresh controversy tied to "the people versus o.j. simpson" as a member of the brown family speaks out about the show. >> the sister of nicole brown simpson is furious about the o.j. mini series and wishathize producers and cast would have reached out to her family before putting the show together and
7:32 am
she is directing some comments at one star in particular. the people versus o.j. simpson is drawing huge ratings and critical praise but not everyone is a fan. tonya brown is upset with david schwimmer who plays robert kardashian. >> being a good person and a loyal friend is more important than being famous. it means nothing at all without a virtuous heart. >> reporter: schwimmer reportedly consulted with kris jenner saying i will say people should have included family members, not just friends. just tired of disrespect in our
7:33 am
country. both fx and schwimmer had no comment. some real life players see the show differently. >> i'm looking at it with anticipation. >> reporter: carl dougilous is one of simpson's attorneys and had lunch with the actor playing him. >> he told me with rare exception they were directed to not have any direct contact with the people who they were portraying until after the filming. >> reporter: according to new york magazine filming wound down after sarah polson reached out to marsha clark. saying she delivered feelings so beautifully with so much nuance
7:34 am
you get the feeling of futillity in the courtroom. >> tonya brown tells us she is not watching any of it. she says she keeps forgetting that it is even on. >> i imagine it tears open the wound again 20 years later. a lot of people are talking about the show. meantime, other news now, the second winners of last month's $1.67 billion jackpot have come forward. now they have rather modest plans for the moment. >> took a little more than a month for maureen smith to get their bucks in a row. >> we just kept quiet. >> reporter: maybe not absolutely normal. after winning more than $528 million in the big powerball lottery. >> lost a lot of sleep and over ten pounds. >> the worry of what is going to
7:35 am
happen. >> what are you going to do with the money? >> no. >> $1.6 billion. >> reporter: we knew the jackpot would be divided among three winning tickets but who won has been a mystery. the powerball numbers were chosen in this building a month ago. the couple has been keeping it a secret ever since even from family. >> were you looking forward to today or dread tg? >> dreading it. >> they want to make their announcement right here -- >> reporter: came forward almost immediately. >> what does this feel like to you? >> reporter: the couple returned to mumford, tennessee and out of the public eye. the third winning ticket was sold in california where the crowd gathered hoping to get a glimpse of the winner. a month later the world is still
7:36 am
waiting to find out. the winner has until next january to come forward. back in florida. >> he wants to get a new car. i want to get a massage. >> as many as she wants. for today, janet shamlian, nbc news, tallahassee. >> i won the lottery. i'm the third winner. i was just driving through. >> she can get a lot of massages. >> and he wants a car. we have a lot of dangerous weather into the west. take a look what winds have brought in southern california, transformers coming down. sadly, one person killed when a car was crushed by a fallen transformer. the other side of the winds going to be a big fire danger.
7:37 am
right now we are looking at wind advisories, high wind warnings for over 28 million people. the warning areas could see 65 miles per hour gusts. that makes for a big fire threat especially central plains. 14 million people at risk for rapid spread of fire danger. new mexico to kansas low relative humidity, strong winds and record highs combining for big fire dangers. the rest of the country windy and wet weather continues pacific northwest into central california. sunshine along eastern it's much cooler here this morning now that we've had some scattered rain moving through. we're only tracking light scattered showers, but not a really good coverage at this point, just enough to make the roads wet and yet turn on the windshield wipers. temperatures in the lower 50s,
7:38 am
as we are getting some sun breaking out. we had some thunder and lightning earlier this morning. we're looking at highs today that will be topping out in the low to mid 60s. and that's your latest weather. >> coming up, a florida teen caught in an under cover sting accused of pretending to be a doctor. the surprising thing he is saying about his arrest. would you eat parm cheese if it had wood in it? what is in some of the foods you buy. first these messages. hey dad. hey sweetie, how was your first week? long. it'll get better. i'm at the edward jones office, like sue suggested. thanks for doing this, dad. so i thought it might be time to talk about a financial strategy. (laughing) you mean pay him back? knowing your future is about more than just you. so let's start talking about your long-term goals... multiplied by 13,000 financial advisors.
7:39 am
it's a big deal. and it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. thwith aches, chills,g. and fever, there's no such thing as a little flu. and it needs a big solution: an antiviral. so when the flu hits, call your doctor right away and up the ante with antiviral tamiflu. prescription tamiflu is an antiviral that attacks the flu virus at its source
7:40 am
and helps stop it from spreading in the body. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people two weeks of age and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu, tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion, or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. anti-flu? go antiviral with tamiflu. mom, >>son. now that fedex has streamlined our e-commerce and helped us grow our business, i think it's time we start acting like a business. >>okay... here we go... >>oh, look at this... ok, so number one. no personal items are permitted in the workplace. those will need to come down. we'll be doing some mandatory testing. and there's also a strict no dating policy. >>uh, but honey, we're married.

that's going to be a problem. grow your business with the online shipping tools from fedex. it's easy to love your laxative when that lax loves your body back. only miralax hydrates, eases and softens to unblock naturally,

7:43 am
no surprise we are crazy about cheese. the average american eats almost 25 pounds of it per year. you may not know the fda opened an investigation into castle and they found grated parmesan cheese included filler which could be derived from wood pulp. what is in our food despite what is on the label? america has long had a love affair with cheese. this case smells rotten. the fda spelled it out, your parmesan cheese products do not contain any parmesan cheese. market pantry 100% parmesan cheese included cheddar cheese and cellulose. >> they are looking to cheat somehow. they are trying to deceive us
7:44 am
and trying to do things that we don't notice. to cut corners so they can make money. >> reporter: the fda does allow fillers like cellulose in cheese but can only make up 4% of total ingredients. he says hard cheese is on the list of foods with documented mislabelling issues. also on the list certain brands of extra version olive oil. some more expensive seafood like lobster or scallops and some orange juices. we reached out to the involved food industries. they say they are committed to complying with food standards and mislabelling is unacceptable.
7:45 am
food contributor says he thinks people can find mislabelled products. >> most people aren't focussed on it so they go to a great italian restaurant and say something about the food is really great. the products are real. that is what we are missing out on. >> reporter: the food and drug administration says its job is to make sure food doesn't hurt you. >> no doubt that the highest priority is to keep us safe. >> reporter: what can you do if you are concerned about the food in your fridge and pantry? he says buy products with the name you trust. there is no easy solution to food mislabelling. the fda is working on increasing regulation but they are overwhelmed. the onus is on the consumer to remain vigilant. we reached out to the company for comment but never heard back.
