good evening. and we begin tonight with that highly anticipated moment, the meeting between two political heavyweights. donald trump and house speaker paul ryan, who has said he is not ready to endorse trump. trump with a wave as he arrived for the washington meeting. afterwards, speaker paul ryan revealing the mood of the meeting, but there was no photo released of the two together. ryan saying they're still getting to know one another. no handshakes shown, no endorsement. and tonight, there is also news on trump and his proposed muslim ban. abc's tom llamas outside the meeting in washington. >> reporter: he's railed against washington for months. but today, donald trump came to capitol hill waving an olive branch, not a fist. >> i was very encouraged with what i heard from donald trump today. i do believe that we are now planting the seeds to get ourselves unified. >> reporter: ryan has strongly condemned one of trump's biggest campaign promises.
>> a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united
states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> reporter: but now, it sounds like trump is softening. just one day before meeting ryan, calling the muslim ban just a suggestion. >> it's a temporary ban. it hasn't been called for yet, nobody's done it. this is just a suggestion until we find out what's going on. >> reporter: so, is paul ryan now sold on donald trump? abc's jon karl asked him. >> are you endorsing donald trump? if you're not, what is holding you back? and do you really have a choice? >> the process of unifying the republican party, which just finished a primary about a week ago, perhaps one of the most divisive primaries in memory, takes some time. >> reporter: the trump motorcade now under way, headed to his next meeting, on schedule. trump not stopping to talk to all the cameras. in fact, all day, not a word from the outspoken billionaire. but tonight, this. >> i think we really had a great
meeting today, and i think we agree on a lot
of things and it will be a little process, but it will come along. and ryan himself seeming to acknowledge the irony of it all, tweeting a picture with schoolchildren, calling this his most important meeting of the day. and david, as for hillary clinton tonight, she's hitting trump, saying he's playing fast and loose when it comes to the muslim ban and tweeting, he's trying to backpedal, don't let him. >> tom llamas tonight. tom, thank you. let's get right to jon karl. and jon, paul ryan says, this is only the beginning. you heard that. no endorsement yet. but we also saw those battleground polls last night. donald trump actually leading hillary clinton in ohio. is there a risk for some republicans if they don't get behind trump? >> reporter: there is absolutely a risk, david, and paul ryan knows it. the bottom line is, virtually everybody i spoke to today expects that he will ultimately endorse donald trump, but this may take awhile. he cannot afford to be at war with his party's own presidential nominee. he made clear at the meeting today that trump must represent
all republicans, including the many that voted against him, david. and he also made it clear that this endorsement may come, but it will not come any time soon. >> all right, jon karl with us, as well. jon, thank you. we turn next tonight, to two officers suspended this evening after claims of excessive force. all of this after an hour-long police chase, crossing state lines. the driver in the pickup truck, finally stopping, crawling out, kneeling on the ground. then multiple officers rushing forward and making their move on him. tonight, as i mentioned, two officers relieved of duty, and abc's gio benitez is in new hampshire. >> reporter: that high speed chase taking police across state lines. cars speeding at more than 100 miles per hour. >> got a pursuit coming up behind you. >> reporter: but at the end, in new hampshire, a sight now shocking state investigators. you can see the suspect getting out of the car, first on his knees, then lying down, but punches fly. law enforcement officers appear to beat him. >> they all stepped out of their
cars, and then he just surrendered. and all of a sudden, you just saw all the cops start beating up on him and stuff. >> reporter: late this afternoon, two state troopers suspended without pay. the state attorney general launching an investigation into use of force. >> i want the public and law enforcement personnel to know that the division of state police does not condone the unjustified use of force and it will not be tolerated. >> reporter: you can see the bruised suspect here, richard simone, on the run in massachusetts for warrants including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. >> obviously, i think anyone who looks at the video is disturbed by it, but again, we don't jump to conclusions. we need to find out exactly what happened. >> reporter: and david, we're now learning that just five days ago, the suspect led police on another chase. he got away. but this time, he ended up right here at this dead end. david? >> gio benitez tonight. gio, thank you. next, to the outrage this evening after george zimmerman late today put the gun he used when trayvon martin was killed back up for auction, to make
money off that gun. zimmerman recently getting it back from police, after he was acquitted of murder and manslaughter in martin's death. abc's matt gutman on the controversy, making that money off of a weapon. >> and i didn't think i hit him. >> reporter: george zimmerman really wants to sell the gun he used to kill trayvon martin. this morning, his auction page heralding the sale of an american firearm icon rejected by the host site just minutes before it went live. but not before more than 200,000 people perused the page, replete with pictures of the gun taken during zimmerman's 2013 murder trial for the death of martin. zimmerman was acquitted. zimmerman telling the orlando fox station -- >> i'm a free american. and can i do what i'd like with my possessions. >> reporter: then, this afternoon, the same exact offer popping up on this gun website. zimmerman writing he was, quote, honored and humbled to sell the gun. opening bid? $5,000.
zimmerman even suggesting it should be displayed at the smithsonian. the venerable washington, d.c. museum shot that down, tweeting that it has no plans to ever collect or display it. david, zimmerman writes that part of the proceeds will go to fighting his perceived enemies, including hillary clinton. only problem is, so far, there have been zero bids on that gun. david? >> matt gutman with us tonight. thanks, matt. next, to the tsa under fire at this hour, after a blistering hearing on cop toll hill. already lines so long at america's airports, some passengers have been told now to arrive three hours before their domestic flights. even the airlines are now complaining on behalf of the passengers. also tonight, the agency facing new accusations, paying huge bonuses with taxpayer dollars. your money. here's abc's david kerley. >> reporter: long lines at tsa. today, at newark. >> this is a nightmare. >> reporter: denver telling passengers to arrive up to three hours early. >> i've never really been in a
line that is this long. >> reporter: these long waits meaning thousands are missing flights. now airlines are asking passengers to tweet pictures under #ihatethewait. a message delivered to the head of tsa by congress. >> that's not acceptable. >> i am so livid. >> reporter: for the first time, the white house is blaming congress for the long lines. the reason? tighter security measures after failed tests. more flyers. but no additional funding for new officers. >> we do not have enough people currently to staff our lanes. >> reporter: but tsa was blasted for a $90,000 bonus to one of its top officials, even though the screeners he supervises failed those tests to detect banned weapons. the bonus? delivered in $10,000 increments, all before the current administrator arrived. >> looks like something's being hidden. >> i don't think it's right, and i stopped that practice. >> reporter: and here's the bad news. the busy summer travel season hasn't even started, when a record number of passengers are expected to get in line. david? >> all right, david kerley with us, as well end tonight.
thank you. we turn next here to the severe weather, on alert for heavy rain and strong winds from kentucky to the carolinas at this hour. the worst of them, this ef-4 tornado that hit oklahoma. we showed you the pictures, those swirling winds. up to 175 miles an hour. that was incredible. and tonight here, for the first time, we're now hearing the 911 calls during that tornado. here's abc's kayna whitworth. >> reporter: tonight, oklahoma residents cleaning up after more damaging storms. >> you see that? >> took a house. oh, no. >> reporter: this, as we hear the desperate calls for help after the most powerful tornado of the year touched down near wynnewood. >> tornado's right at our window! >> okay, ma'am -- ma'am, take shelter in the lowest part of your house. >> reporter: the woman telling dispatch she lives in a trailer with no tornado shelter. >> we're out in the barn. there's an old barn that's been out here for, like, 30 years. >> okay. then you just need to hunker down right now. >> this tornado, a violent tornado, gets even closer and closer to wynnewood.
>> reporter: another caller fearing the worst at a home that was hit. >> there is a girl that was in that house and i'm afraid she's trapped. we cannot get ahold of her. >> reporter: we tracked the dangerous storm into the night. we've already seen two tornadoes touch down, so, it's already been an active day. twisters killing two people that evening. >> it looks like a lawn mower went through here. >> reporter: residents now bracing for the next round. kayna whitworth, abc news, los angeles. >> kayna, thank you. we turn now to the olympics in rio, and new concern tonight for the american athletes. the games now just three months away, and this evening, one health official saying the games should be postponed. just as we get new images of an american patient, and what zika looks like. the symptoms, after he came down with it. here's abc's linsey davis. >> nail that exit point. >> reporter: as these athletes prepare to represent the u.s. in rowing, a call for the summer olympics in brazil to be canceled or postponed because of zika. an article in "the harvard public health review" this week
calls it "a no-brainer for the olympic organizers, k" that the "rio 2016 games must not proceed" to avoid "a full-blown global health disaster." but the nation's top infectious disease official disagrees. >> there is not a universal systemic threat to anyone there because zika is generally a mild disease. >> reporter: while meghan o'leary and ellen tomek say they may want to have children in the future, right now, they're focused on bringing home the gold. so, was there never a question in your mind whether you would go to rio or not? >> never a question. this is going to be just another hurdle or another obstacle to have to face, but you know, we're going. >> reporter: they plan to take the necessary precautions to avoid this. these are pictures of the infection on a new york man who returned from puerto rico, with bloodshot eyes and a painful rash that spread all over his body. today, health officials told congress, its shortsightedness is making the zika problem even worse, by failing to provide the necessary funding to fight it. david? >> linsey davis, thank you. we turn now to an abc news investigation tonight, and this simple question.
when you buy something that says "made in america," can you be sure it really is? tonight, what we found, and the american workers outraged. so many of you at home still tweeting us the dish towels, for example, complete with the american flag. down below, made in china. that label for oven mitts by american mills, made in pakistan. and how about the united states sweaters, made in china? but those companies defending themselves, telling us, they clearly labeled them made overseas. director lev kubiak showed us the deliberate fake of that language learning tool, rosetta stone. it turns out, some are copying it, saying it's made here, when it's not. this looks like the rosetta stone you would order from the american company. >> right. >> and yet this one came from -- >> came from china. >> look closer. the spelling errors. 100% guaranteed, missing an "e." even the state department
spelled wrong. and tonight, we've now learned it's not just online shoppers being duped. it's american taxpayers. government agencies trying to buy made in america supplies with your tax dollars. right down to the silverware they think has long been made in america. take a look at general services administration advantage.gov. they sell supplies to those government agencies. many with budgets mandating that they buy american when available. that's why, on the site, they have a clear "made in" category. search silverware, and you'll find made in the united states of america right next to this spoon. but how can you be sure that what taxpayers are buying is really made here? we went to find the spoons, liberty tabletop, made in new york, selling their silverware to the navy, the air force, the army. but it turns out, they're fighting mad, because they started to lose business. >> nobody could tell us why. >> because also on that website, other distributors like thompson and little, listed here as made in the usa, but when we called the manufacturer, they told our team, they make this spoon overseas. these knives? made in china.
and this flatware set? made in china, too. and back in new york, they say this mislabeling is costing american jobs. >> there's a lot of people that are purchasing, unbeknownst to them, products that are not being made where they say they're being made. >> why are they labeled as made in america in the first place? the government doesn't really police this. it's the distributor of the products listing their own information. a&e supply, with these forks, made in china, but labeled made in the united states of america, telling us the product is no longer sold on that site and has been removed, due to the error. telling us, the listings are honest mistakes. and they're now modifying the website. those american workers in upstate new york tonight argue those mistakes can't be fixed soon enough. >> think about this. for every $100,000 we sell, it's probably a job. that's 30, 40 more jobs we could provide in new york. the jobs are overseas. >> the made in america team will stay on it.
that website, the gsa, well, authorities there now say they've given the distributors until the end of this month to correct their listings or be barred from selling. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this thursday. and breaking news moments ago. a new statement just in from joan rivers' daughter about the death of her mother. we'll have the new developments, coming up. also, lost at sea. the two teenagers who vanished on a fishing trip, the last known images right there. and now comes new word about that iphone found on their boat. and late today, these images coming in, a roller coaster stuck with more than 60 passengers dangling for hours. you'll see how it ends in just a moment. ment. . of diabetic nerve pain, these feet were the first in my family to graduate from college, raised active twin girls, and trained as a nurse. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain.
