the u.s. president in china attending the g20 summit in one of his last opportunities shape american foreign policy. a live report is ahead. wreaking havoc. tropical storm hermine rips across the southeastern part of the united states. threatening floods and causing problems for the holiday weekend. and a state of violence. that's what the president of the philippines declared after an explosion killed dozens in his hometown. we'll take you there. from cnn headquarters in atlanta, to our viewers in the united states and around the world, i'm george howell. "cnn newsroom" starts right now.
5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. the u.s. president is in china for his last g20 meeting with world leaders. the summit is key for president barak obama's legacy of trying to slow down climate change and shifting american foreign policy to focus on asia. the president of turkey and russia, those presidents will also be at the summit. mr. obama is trying to ease tensions with both leaders. mr. obama is scheduled to have his first meeting with the new british prime minister, teresa may. cnn is live in the city hosting the g20. athena jones is at the summit. thanks for being with us. first, let's talk about the significance of the fact that this is the president's last time with world leaders at this meeting. what are his priorities going into it? >> reporter: hi, george. you're right. in 60 something days, president obama becomes a lame duck. we know he's not going to
fritter away his final days of his presidency. we hear him say often that he's going to run out the clock. running out the clock also means running out the clock on the work of diplomacy. there's a lot on schedule, not just at the g20 but in laos, his next stop where he'll stop with saudis, the asean summit and east asian summit. first on his agenda, a meeting with china's president xi where they'll talk about areas of agreement like climate change and working together to pressure north korea to curb its nuclear ambitions. also areas where there is some difference. things like exchange rates, economic issues, some trade issues like the steel glut, the overcapacity, overproduction of steel by china and maritime issues. he'll have those meetings with president xi today. his eighth face to face with china's president. as you mentioned, tomorrow he has a meeting with turkey's president. they'll discuss the fight
against isis in syria and iraq. trial come up -- likely to come up, turkey's insistence that it extradite the moderate muslim cleric living in pennsylvania that the turks believe is behind the failed coup in july. that's likely to come up. as you mentioned, he's going to have his first formal meeting, the first meetings period with the uk minister, prime minister teresa may. the brexit trial come up there. there's not going to be a formal meeting but an informal one with russia's president putin. they'll talk about syria and ukraine. a lot on the agenda from counterterrorism to trade issues to climate change. of course, tpp. not all of the nations here for the summit are party to the tpp, but several nations that will be at the asean summit are part of the tpp. this is a centerpiece of this pivot to asia, this rebalance to
asia. the u.s. believes it's very important to close the deal, to have congress pass this trade deal in order to secure america's influence in this part of the world. so a lot for the president to talk about in these next few days, george. >> athena, you mentioned different meetings with the president of turkey, president erdogan, and the meeting, possible meeting with vladimir putin. again, important to point out that the meeting with vladimir putin is not scheduled. these two leaders definitely have differences. >> reporter: they absolutely have differences. we've seen from time to time where it's not a formal sit down. the leaders know they're going to be here, both of their staffs know they're going to be here. they manage a way to have a less formal meeting. not that you sit down for an expanded bilateral, the terminology, a pull-aside where
they chat. they have big issues. ukraine may not be in all the headlines. it's been a while since russia invaded crimia. that's still an issue. and syria where russia is helping prop up the assad regime. the hope is that russia and the u.s. can work together to make sure there is a real cessation of hoss nilts syria and allowing humanitarian access to cities like aleppo that we've seen so much in the news. the bottom line is a lot of diplomacy is going to be taking place the next couple of days. the meetings with erdogan, putin, and may are high on the agenda, important for the u.s. george? >> also, president vladimir putin pointing out that russia at a state level certainly not behind as he says the hacking of the dnc. that could be a topic that comes up as the two major leaders come together. athena joan live for us. thank you very much for your reporting. when it comes to hosting the
g20 summit, it is a big deal for china. beijing rolled out the red carpet for g20 members, guest countries, and invited international organizations. our asia-pacific editor, andrew stevens, has more from the city that was transformed to impress these world leaders as they arrived. >> reporter: honjo, its historic lake a source of inspiration for poets and painters for centuries. now the centerpiece of the g20 summit hosted for the first time by china. world leaders looking for their own inspiration in the economic landscape will be cocooned here. beijing wants to show the face of hangzhou as home to giant online companies like ali babba founded here 17 years ago by jack marr. the success of ali has led to an explosion of online services
companies which is providing a powerful new economic growth model. young entrepreneurial chinese across the country have been attracted to this fast-growing city to join companies like ali and other online operators that cluster here and fill china's vision of services-led economic growth. this city of nine million is booming. gdp growth was more than 10% in the first half of the year. the national average less than 7%. showcasing hangzhou has a flip side. a city in virtual lockdown and being mothemptied out. factories have fallen silent, an attempt at clearing the air, construction projects at a standstill, shops closing. security is tight and getting tighter. our cnn crew was frequently questioned by police and security, stopped from filming, and constantly asked for
credentials. the real trouble is migrant labor. this migrant neighborhood is virtually deserted. many left as the factories closed ahead of the g20. those who remain say they're being pushed to leave, as well. this man tells me he and about 30 other families had their cooking gas confiscated after being told it was unsafe. the two rooms he shares with his wife and two children is now just one room. police declared their second room an illegal structure. "i don't know why it's illegal," he tells me. "it has something to do with the roof, but we've been here for ten years, and nothing like this has ever happened before." for those who stay, getting supplies is also becoming difficult. the city's central wholesale market, teeming mass to the population, is virtually empty. for those who want to stay, a
visit to the west lake takes heavy security screenings, police taking no chances ahead of the summit. a summit that china hopes will reveal its old-world charm and new-world economic prospects to its most important guests. andrews stevens, china. in the united states, tropical storm her hmine is marching up the coast with damaging winds and heavy rains and leaving floodwaters in its wake. a flood watch in effect for parts of the carolinas. tens of thousands there are without power. hermine ripped into florida's big bend region friday as a category-one storm. it is the first hurricane to come ashore in the state since wilma struck florida 11 years ago. hermine is on track to reach the atlantic coast in the coming hours where it could regain strength once again as it mixes with warm water. let's go live to our meteorologist, derek van dam, who is tracking this storm. what's the latest?
the timing couldn't possibly be worse for tropical storm hermine. this storm, you used a great verb to describe it, marching along the east coast. i think a better verb might be sprinting. take a look at this. this system now just starting to make its way into the west virginia region, the delmarva peninsula. and it is racing in a northeasterly direction at 21 miles per hour. latest from the national hurricane center has sustained winds of 60 miles per hour. still center of circulation over land. what i want you to notice, though is that the storm is going to -- we're going to apply the brake to the system as we go forward the next few days. the reason why is because we have a blocking area of high pressure to the north and another blocking area of high into the atlantic. that is going to prevent our tropical system from moving to the east which would typically be picked up by the jet streams, the upper-level winds. it's not going to have that factor at this time. this is making very difficult lives for computer models and
for meteorologists trying to predict exactly where this will go. the bottom line, though, is that this system has the potential to stall out across the warm waters of the gulf of mexico. let me show what that means from philadelphia to baltimore perhaps into new york city, remember, we need temperatures in the gulf of mexico, at least water temperatures, to be above 79 degrees fahrenheit to see tropical development. at least fuel for the tropical development. guess what, temperatures are in the lower 80s in that warm gulf of mexico water, or i should say gulf stream water. that could potentially allow for the storm to see the tropical characteristics again once it enters the atlantic ocean. take a look at this. many people comparing this storm with hurricane sandy from 2008 -- 2012, i should say. the big difference here is that sandy had a much larger wind field when compared to the much
more kpaktd -- more compact hermine. these things would happen for it to move to the coastline. in the interim, severe weather, flash flooding, damaging winds, and coastal storm surge. here's the latest radar. you see the carolinas getting pounded with heavy rain. they have flood watches across the area. wind gusts over 50 miles per hour. and look at this, george, we have the potential from the chesapeake bay through the long island sound of two to four feet above normal high tide through the region into sunday and monday. >> not only a soaker, but obviously people need to stay in touch with their local meteorologists. stay in touch with us to keep watching the storm as it pushes through. >> i agree. >> thank you very much. the president of the philippines says that his nation is a state of lawless violence, and he is ramping up police and military on the streets because of it. he made the declaration shortly
after an explosion tore through a crowded market friday night in his own hometown. the blast killing 14. dozens more wounded. the president says the explosion was an act of terrorism. let's get the latest from our journalist live by phone from the province. what do you know, what's the latest, and who could be behind it? >> reporter: well, the head of the philippine national police is giving more details as of now. it's been more than 12 hours. it happen around 10:30 in the evening last night. very few details have been released about what exactly happened there. the police, the man in charge of the investigation has not actually called it a bombing. in the last hour, there was a mass for the davao blast victims by the archbishop in the area.
the president has gone and visited the blast victims in the hospital. and now at this hour, we're hoping to get more details of who exactly is behind this. >> let's talk also about the president's declaration calling this a state of lawless violence. that comes with direct instructions. it means that there will be increased police and military presence on the streets. also means more checkpoints. it authorizes the checkpoints. what has been the general reaction to that declaration? >> reporter: it's been -- i guess part of it, this is the mildest of the president's three emergency powers with the -- giving him the ability to call out the military along with the police on the streets. to put this in context, over the last two months, there's been an intensive war against illegal drugs in this country. more than 2,000 people have been killed during that time period. there's a peace process that's
been ongoing between both the communist rebels and the largest muslim separatist groups. and he initiated the most intensive crackdown against the terrorism group. it's on a blacklist, terrorist blackli blacklist. and all of these combined have created a sense of uncertainty, little fear, and more information certainly what we're looking for. what we've heard from the witnesses at that night market is that a man, a medium-built man, came into an area where people were getting massages. he left a pabackpack, and that what exploded. >> journalist maria ressa with us on the phone. thank you for the reporting. we'll stay in touch to learn more. this is "cnn newsroom." still ahead, donald trump is trying to reach out to minority voters. next, why some say his visited to an african-american church is

former secretary of state say these notes prove their respective cases. joe johns has more. wow. >> reporter: the fbi's formerly classified report on its investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server reveals there was a lot she said she could not remember when being questioned by agents. the report indicates 39 different times mrs. clinton said there were things she did not recall or remember according to the fbi's notes on her interview. the document providing insight into what the fbi did not recommend charging clinton even with classified information on her private server, including 81 e-mail chains that contained sensitive information. >> although we did not find clear evidence that secretary clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. >> reporter: in her more than three-hour interview with the
fbi, clinton could not recall any briefing or training by state related to the handling of classified information. she said she could not recall every briefing about how she should preserve her records when she left the state department. the fbi noting she was recovering from a concussion and blood clot at the time. clinton said she relied on her aides to use their judgment when e-mailing her and could not recall anyone raising concerns about information sent to her private account. she also said she did not know that a c marketing on a document men it was classified and asked agents for clarification. some of the classified emails that caused the most trouble for clinton discuss the cia's covert drone program which should never be discussed on any unclassified e-mail systems. the report says clinton stated "deliberation over a future drone strike did not give cause for concern regarding classification." >> welcome to all of you -- >> reporter: one of the things mrs. clinton seemed conclusive about was her motivation. she told the fbi she used her
personal e-mail server for convenience and not to evade freedom of information laws. attorney general loretta lynch followed the fbi's recommendation and passed on prosecuting clinton who eventually admit using a private e-mail server was a mistake. >> i would certainly not do that again. that is something that at the time, as even director comey said, seemed like a convenience. but it was the wrong choice. ♪ >> reporter: donald trump wasted no time seizing on the release saying, "hillary clinton's answers to the fbi about her private e-mail server defy belief. i was absolutely shocked to see that her answers to the fbi stood in direct contradiction to what she told the american people." the clinton campaign got what it wanted on friday. it called for the release of these documents in order to avoid selective leaking of the information by her opposition. but the problem for hillary clinton's campaign is that it breathes new life into a story that has dogged the democratic
nominee since before the primaries, giving critics fodder to question her honesty and truthfulness. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> thank you. in the meantime, donald trump is trying to reach out to minority voters. he's set to attend a service saturday at a primarily african-american church in detroit, michigan. after that, the church's pastor will interview trump. the republican met with african-american community leaders friday in philadelphia, pennsylvania. trump has been widely criticized for poor minority outreach. and he hasn't been polling well with minority voters. let's talk now the plus-minus for hillary clinton when it comes to these notes, the fbi notes, and donald trump on minority outreach with cnn politics reporter eugene scott live via skype in washington. good to have you with us. these notes from the former secretary of state, hillary clinton, wanted that information made public. the notes raised questions that her critics are seizing on as proof of dishonesty. >> reporter: yes, and one of the
issues that her critics are seizing on from these notes is that it appears that even after "the new york times" reported about the private e-mail use that some emails were deleted after the fact. there's also concern, of course, about conversations about drones happening that should not have taken place in e-mail because of sense tiftd. many of her -- sensitivity. many of her supporters are focused on the fact that she said her intentions were not negative. she was not hoping to mislead anyone or hide any information and that her decisions were primarily shaped by a desire for convenience. so depending on where you fuel this issue and perhaps even more so which candidate you find most problematic, that definitely will shape how you move forward in this election season following this disclosure. >> let's talk about donald trump planning to visit an african-american church in
detroit, michigan. the question -- will it help him, will it make a difference that he visits that church and that he is interviewed by pastor of that church? >> reporter: as you note earlier, yesterday donald trump spoke with african-american voters in philadelphia. and while he'll be interviewed today in detroit, he will also meet a bit unofficially with some voters at the church. so what -- what i'll be interested in seeing is what voters take away from their time with mr. trump. i've been speaking this week with voters in detroit to get their thoughts and ideas about what they hope he addresses. he has been very clear that he thinks he has the best solutions for issues affecting black communities in urban areas. whether or not he details -- provides details on those issues today in areas related to health care, accessibility, education, and job growth and unemployment
rates will i think determine whether or not he has a change of heart. he needs some voters to change their hearts and plans this election season. >> and eugene also let's talk about the week that was. donald trump visiting mexico, visiting the president of mexico, enrique pena nieto and going to give a fiery speech. after the speech, we saw the fallout within his own campaign, people leaving the campaign because of it. what is the net gain from what we saw donald trump do? i mean, did he achieve his aims there, or did he actually find himself handicapped because of it? >> reporter: i was actually in phoenix the day that donald trump gave the speech in phoenix. i think many people were surprised even within the campaign about how much pushback donald trump got from latinos who had previously been
supportive of his policies. i think there's still time to clarify his immigration issues. there's still some questions that have been left unanswered. but whether latinos who had been previously for donald trump on board, remains to be seen as more details are made clear. it's worth noting his favorability ratings with latino voters as a whole remain so high, significantly high, that the likelihood of him winning latino voters overall is very low. >> there's the recent flap, controversial derogatory, you could say, comment made by one of his surrogates that has made news recently. eugene scott live via skype from washington. thank you very much. we'll continue to watch the election as we get closer to election day. >> reporter: yes. this is "cnn newsroom." ahead, doctors say a young migrant woman was very lucky.

he will visit a largely african-american church in michigan on saturday. there's already controversy surrounding that trip. the church's pastor is under fire for giving the trump campaign his interview questions in advance. the fbi has released its investigation notes on his rival, hillary clinton. her use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state has been under scrutiny. according to the fbi, clinton said 39 times that she didn't recall or remember training on how she handled classified information. the path of tropical storm hermine will take it past the carolinas and into the atlantic ocean in the coming hours. once there, it may stall and possibly regain strength. on friday it ripped into florida's big bend region as a category-one storm. it is the first hurricane to come ashore in that state in 11 years. the u.s. president will be holding bilateral talks with the
chinese president xi jinping. mr. obama will likely meet with the president of turkey. that meeting will be their first since the failed coup in that country. china's heavy investment in africa is likely to also be discussed at the g20 summit, but africa will have just one representative at the summit despite the continent's growing influence. we have more. >> reporter: south africa is part of what's considered to be a premium group of nations, the g20. for ordinary africans on the street, membership in this international club doesn't seem like a big deal.
>> i currently have no idea what the g20 is. i think it's a summit basically. >> g20 is not about environmental something. >> global? >> reporter: the g20 may not have the street cred, but some see advantages to membership in the group. >> we would rather have a seat at the table than not, right? talk to the swiss, for instance. the swiss have a huge financial sector. they're important in the european countries. they're not on the g20. they want to be on the g20, but they're not. >> reporter: as the most industrialized nation on the continent, south africa is the only african country with a seat at the g20 fabel table. it also chaired the forum in 2007. >> underrepresentation is a crazy things when i look at it. you've only got one thing, south africa, in the g20 when south africa doesn't have the largest country in the continent. some other countries should be included in the mix.
>> reporter: it seems bigger doesn't always mean better. the g20 have never replaced bigger nations with better performing or bigger economies. it does invite about six nonmember countries each year. in the past, elktorial guinea, mauritania, as well as ethiopia have received invitations. in 2008, the g20 showed its strength during the global crisis, showing unprecedented coordinated action to deal with the economic meltdown. how much clout does the brief brief have today? >> over the last seven or eight years, in tandem with a period of great instability, the g20 in attempting to bring some assembly plans of recovery and stability to the global economy has been very, very relevant. >> reporter: as the global economy experienced tectonic shifts in power the last 15 years, so did the group of seven nations. it evolved to the brief to include emerging economies. africans now will expect this
evolution to continue if the continent known as the last economic frontier is to have a greater voice. cnn, johannesburg. >> thank you. spain could be heading for its third election in a year. the deadlocked spanish parliament rejected a bid by the acting prime minister to form a minority government. it was his second attempt in three days. the new election will be called if lawmakers can't agree on a compromise by the end of october. turkey claims its offensive in north southeastern is a success. president erdogan spoke at a news conference friday. reuters reports that he said turkey and its allies have removed isis fighters and kurdish forces that turkey considers terrorists from a wide area. turkey's fight against the kurds has drawn criticism from the united states. the u.s.-backed kurdish ypg has been effectively fighting isis. mr. erdogan addressed the
controversy. listen -- >> translator: right now the united states say the ypg militant crossed east of the euphrates river. we tell them, no, they haven't. let me say this -- the proof that they crossed over east of of the euphrates river adheres to our confirmation. we do not believe that ypg or pyd crossed east of the euphrates river by listening to someone's statement in the united states or anywhere else. >> mr. erdogan's comments come as turkey clashed with protesters on the syrian border. the turks used teargas and water cannons friday to break up a crowd near the city of kobani. kobani's largely -- it is a largely kurdish area and a city official says that several people were injured. the demonstrations were protesting turkey's construction of a border wall. that's according to a leader in turkey's pro-kurdish hdp party. thousands of refugees and other migrants are still trying to make the very dangerous
journey across the mediterranean. some of those, many people make it, some do not. one is a woman who did make it. she gave birth prematurely, as well, to twins aboard a flimsy, packed vessel off libya's coast. we have the story for you. >> reporter: eight days old, and the baby responds to his mother's touch. born at sea with his brother, the twins are doing well. their mother, a 26-year-old, delivered a month premature on board a rickety boat off the libyan coast. she and the twins were flown by helicopter to the hospital. after a long and treacherous journey from her native aratria to libya, fortune smiled down upon her when all seemed lost. >> translator: she was very
lucky. it was a premature delivery of twins in a crowded boat in the mediterranean. any complication could have been grave with the risk of death for both the mother and the twins. >> reporter: he -- she explains that they escaped to get away from mandatory service. she had already served three years. short of money, her husband stayed in sudan, and she paid human traffickers thousands of dollars to take her to libya. there she stayed for five months in tripoli sleeping on the dirty floor in a warehouse. pregnant, she never saw a doctor the whole time she was there. traffickers loaded her and thousands of others on dozens of boats along the libyan coast last week. on the second day at sea, she went into labor. other women helped with the
delivery. what followed, she recounts, was hours of anguish and pain, without food or water. she was terrified the babies wouldn't survive. now the ordeal is over. she and the twins are safe and sound. she hopes to eventually be reunited with her husband to settle in britain or possibly the united states where she has relatives. her life fraught with so much uncertainty. yet despite it all, she can savor a moment of joy. ben wedeman, cnn, palermo. the late mother teresa is a day away from become declared a saint by the roman catholic church. next, her remarkable life and legacy. plus, samsung issues a worldwide recall on its brand-new phone. what you should do if you bought a galaxy note 7. if your sneezes are a force to be reckoned with...

year. let's listen in. >> define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other challenge. one of the reasons i ran for this office was to make sure that america does its footer protect this planet for future generations. over the past 7.5 years we've transformed the united states into a global leader in the fight against climate change. this is not a fight that any one country no matter how powerful can take along. it's why last december's paris agreement was so important. nearly 200 nations came together as a strong, enduring framework to set the world on a course to a low carbon future. someday we may see this as the moment that we finally decided to save our planet. there are no shortage of cynics who thought the agreement would not happen, but they missed two big things -- investments that we make to allow for incredible
innovation in clean energy, and the strong principles of diplomacy over the course of years that we're able to see pay off in the paris agreement. the united states and china were senate majority leader that effort. over -- were paramount in that effort. over the past few years, china has been one of the significant leaders in global action. in 2014, president xi and i stood together to announce landmark climate targets for our two country to meet. that announcement -- our two countries to meet. that announcement set us on the road to paris by jump-starting an intense diplomatic effort to put other countries on the same cour course. in 2015, we stood together in washington to lay out additional actions our two countries would take along with a roadmap for ultimately reaching a strong agreement in paris. this year, in 2016, we meet
again to join an agreement ahead of schedule, fearing the prospect of agreement might head into agreement as well. the united states and china are taking that step today as our two nations formally join the paris agreement. of course, we could not have done this extraordinary work without the strong support of the secretary general of the united states, mr. ban ki-moon, who has been an outstanding leader on this issue, as well. now, just as i believe the paris agreement will ultimately prove to be a turning point for our planet, i believe that history will judge today's efforts as pivotal. for the agreement to enter into force, 55 countries representing 55% of global emissions must formally join. together, the u.s. and china
represent about 40% of global emissions. today we are moving the world significantly closer to the goal that we have set. we have a saying in america that you need to put your money where your mouth is. when it comes to combating climate change, that's what we're doing. both the united states and china. we're leading by example. as the world's two largest economies and two largest commitments, our interest in this agreement continues the momentum of paris and should give the rest of the world confidence whether developed or developing countries that a low carbon future is where the world is heading. of course, the paris agreement alone won't solve the climate crisis. it does establish an enduring framework that enables countries to ratchet down their carbon emissions over time. to set more ambitious targets as technology advances.
that means full implementation will help delay or avoid the worst consequences of climb change and pave the way for more progress in the coming years. this is the single-best chance that we have to deal with a problem that could end up transforming this planet in a way that makes it very difficult for us to deal with all the other challenges. president xi and i intend to continue working together in the months ahead to make sure our countries lead climate. three years ago in california, we first resolved to work together to secure a global agreement to phase down the use of superpollutants known as hfcs. we're now just six weeks away from final negotiation. we have a chance to erase global emissions from the global airline industry. one that has the support of industry. today we're putting forward roadmaps to get both
negotiations done this year. on each of these issues, the united states and china have developed a significant record of leadership on one of the most important issues of our time. our teams have worked together and developed a strong relationship that should serve us very well. despite differences on other issues, we hope our willingness to work together on this issue will inspire greater ambition and greater action around the world. yes, diplomacy can be difficult, and progress on the world stage can be slow. together we're proving that it is possible. i was reflecting before we came in here with secretary general ban ki-moon about the meeting that we had in copenhagen in my first year of my presidency which was quite chaotic. i think it is fair to say that
if you had looked at the outcome of the meeting, the prospects of us being here today, the prospects of a paris agreement seemed very far away. and yet, here we are which indicates that where there's a will and a vision and where countries like china and the united states are prepared to show leadership and to lead by example, it is possible for us to create a world that is more secure, more prosperous, and more free than the one that was left for us. so to all of you who participated in this extraordinary effort, thank you very much. thank you to president xi. thank you, mr. secretary general. [ applause ] 5:53 p.m. in hangzhou, china. you see the president of the united states, barack obama, alongside the u.s. general, ban
ki-moon. also the chinese president, xi jinping. the leaders there together to ratify the climate agreement that was agreed to in paris just last year. this agreement to curb emissions around the world. the president mentioning that the united states and china are large contributors to that issue. and with this agreement, will cause significant decreases in emissions. also keeping in mind that this is the u.s. president's last g20 summit. the president there meeting with world leaders will meet with the turkish president. the two at odds or some issues, specifically the cleric gulan, presently in the united states, who lives in pennsylvania. turkey want him back in turkey. there are talks double that issue. and there's a possibility, as well, of the president of the united states meeting with vladimir putin. nothing official. that could happen as the meeting takes place. again, the u.s. president there,
his last g20 summit. certainly the last opportunity for president barack obama to solidify his legacy when it comes to his lich on the -- his leadership on the world stage with these leaders. before we go, we want to share with you a survival story. nine days after an earthquake leveled entire towns in central italy, firefighters pulled a golden retriever named romeo from the rubble. i want to show you this image. it's just a great things to see. his owners hadn't given up hope that he was alive. when they went to try to get things from their damaged homes, they called his name. sure enough, he barked in response. after that rescue and the ordeal, nine days after being trapped in rubble, romeo was indeed alive. you see him there wagging his tail. what a good story just considering all of the damage and certainly the death, the people who were injured in this terrible earthquake in italy. so many towns that were leveled.
