ukraine to discuss it's the first time the two will have met face-to-face. with all these investigations going on in washington, over russia and possible ties to the trump campaign, it's an open question as to whether or not the president wants his firsthand shake, sit-down with vladimir putin to include these allegations that putin tried to interfere in our election. so that is really the big focus of the g20 even though there are a number of other important issues that they'll discuss including this latest missile test by north korea that the u.s. has confirmed was that longer range intercontinental ballistic missile. >> and with the u.n. meeting today. thank you, tracie potts. europe and japan quietly making a trade deal. >> yes >> i will hit that in my must-reads. still to come, the top stories and a check of the markets overall. plus a hot dog eating record we'll tell who was named chowing

people begging him to run and romney wasn't going to be the guy. then just the way things turn around unbelievable i think there's life lessons involved there you have to maybe seize the moment i'm worried about north korea. i don't know if we're in front of something, this great life we have celebrating yesterday and watching fire works at the local high school. it makes me wonder the world is a dangerous place this brings it home as for what we talk about, friday is jobs day everybody is arguing with us on set about whether we're at full employment or whether the lack of wage gains shows that it's not really the same type of employment situation that we've always had in the past maybe there's still some slack i don't know what to believe at this point now i'm worried about disney one thing here that i like, apparently neilsen measures an age group from age two to 34
