there is an unsweetened version, but original has 7 grams of added sugar per serving. and vanilla, a popular choice for lattes, 16 ounces of sugar. >> it's comparable to a juice box. this is your protein and that's about 15 grams of added sugar. >> reporter: we reached out to the california almond board who say that almond milk offers a dairy-free, soy-free and lactaid-free alternative. they say if you need the protein, you're better eating a hand full of almonds. >> i am an almond milk drinker. i feel the need to come to the defense here for a second. you may not get your protein, but it's still delicious. and if you're avoiding dairy, or soy, it's a nice alternative. >> how do you pronounce it?

3:02 am
>> donald trump responded with a tweet saying, wow, ted cruz got booed off the stage, didn't honor the pledge. i saw his speech two hours earlier but let him speak anyway. no big deal. abc's marcy gonzalez has the latest from cleveland. marcy, did it seem like a big deal there? it seemed watching it. >> reporter: it did. the crowd was in an uproar over ted cruz. but i tell you, trump's running mate got a much warmer reception. the man the gop hopes will help unify the party behind donald trump taking center stage. >> we have but one choice, and that man is ready. this team is ready. our party is ready. >> reporter: indiana governor mike pence accepting the vice presidential nomination. night three of the republican national convention, revving up with two of trump's most attacked former rivals.

marco rubio -- >> after a long and spirited primary, the time for fighting each other is over. >> reporter: -- and ted cruz addressing the party. >> i want to congratulate donald trump on winning the nomination last night. >> reporter: but still not endorsing trump. booed by the crowd just as trump walked into the vip box to watch his son eric speak. >> dad, you've once again taught us by example. you are my hero. you are my best friend. you are the next president of the united states. >> reporter: trump, meanwhile, defending his wife and the speech writer who has now apologized admitting she was behind what many claimed to be plagiarism in melania trump's opening night speech. >> she made a mistake and i thought it was terrific the way she came forward and said, look, it was a mistake i made. and she thought it was very
3:04 am
unfair to melania. >> reporter: and now on to the final night of the convention when trump will be introduced by his daughter ivanka, and then he'll formally accept the party's nomination. >> all right. there's going to be quite a few fireworks as well. i am curious, though, there were other speakers along with ted cruz tonight. overall, who got the biggest reaction? >> reporter: definitely ted cruz got the biggest reaction, but other than him, this was meant to be and it was, mike pence's night. the crowd really seemed fired up at times he was interrupted by the crowd cheering "usa! usa!" the other chant "lock her up!" it's become a popular anti-clinton chant here at the convention. and mike pence had the opportunity to highlight his apparent capabilities, at least in trying to unite this party. >> marcy, there didn't seem to be as many protesters inside today. was it the same for those there, and what was going on with the protests outside as well?
3:05 am
>> reporter: yeah. we didn't see any protesters inside, but outside things were a bit more heated than we have seen over the past few days. at least 17 people were arrested. some of them accused of trying to burn the american flag. others arrested for failing to disperse, and then a few of them for hurting several police officers. we're told two police officers at least were assaulted. we're told they have minor injuries. >> all right. day four will be quite a showdown. marcy, let's go back to day one and the melania trump speech gate controversy. >> the story that never ends. >> apparently there is an end to it, an update? >> reporter: there is an update. so a trump staff writer came forward and admitted it was her mistake. she says that she had a conversation with melania trump about the kinds of messages she wanted to be in this speech and that melania trump mentioned some parts of mrs. obama's speech.
3:06 am
and so the speech writer meredith mciver say, quote, i wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the behind speech. so she says that she tried to resign but it was rejected. and donald trump talked about that last night to george stephanopoulos, and he said that he really appreciated that she admitted that she made the mistake and that's why he wouldn't let her resign over it. >> so finally we get some answers as to what took place on that first night. marcy gone zalez live for us in cleveland. thank you. the convention wraps up tonight focusing on unity with the theme "make america one again." >> before donald trump takes the stage, we'll hear from his daughter ivanka, jerry falwell jr. and reince priebus. we'll have a special report tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern time. and now to our other top story this morning. the extreme heat and humidity hitting most of the country with no relief in sight.

♪ there's a full roster of speakers last night at the republican national conventional, but one speech in particular triggered a lot of reaction from delegates on the floor. >> i think the first name starts with ted. okay. so as we mentioned, cruz's address started out well but then it took a turn. adrienne bankert joining us with new details we're learning right now. >> it depends on who you ask. >> it was the most moving point of the convention so far, possibly. it was emotional, unifying up until that point. then some in the crowd turned to boos, an awkward moment, an angry crowd for the senator for not making it clear that he endorsed trump. >> if you love our country and love your children as much as i

this morning on "world news this morning on "world news now," cheers and jeers in cleveland overnight. there were tense moments on the floor of the republican national conventional as ted cruz refuses to endorse donald trump. how the crowd, including donald trump, responded. in florida an unarmed black man shot by police while he says he was just helping a man with autism. the video of the incident just released. we'll hear from the injured man and why police say they shot him. and new this half hour, the new place where pokemon will soon be popping up. >> how about a theater near you? what we're finding out about the live action pokemon movie. there are 2,472 of them, but what do we know about all the delegates at the republican national convention? you're about to find out on this thursday, july 21st.
3:31 am
>> from action news, this is "world news now." >> good morning, everyone. i'm diane macedo. >> and i'm kendis gibson. i guess if you miss any night of the republican national convention, you're in for a shocker. because, wow, what a resounding snub from ted cruz getting booed off the stage after refusing to endorse donald trump. >> right. there was a lot to see last night. it was an explosive night overall. night three of the republican national convention in cleveland. cruz infuriated some people with his speech. all words were pretty much drowned out once the angry delegates realized that cruz was not going to endorse trump. >> the speech left the crowd so unsettled it overshadowed the keynote address by vice presidential nominee mike pence. let's get more right now from abc's dan harris. >> reporter: loathing on the floor of the convention, the
3:32 am
target of the anger? texas senator ted cruz who ran against trump in the primaries but refused to endorse him, even as the crowd loudly called on him to do so. >> i appreciate the enthusiasm of the new york delegation. >> reporter: enough was enough for trump. it was time to upstage him. trump walking into the room and drawing the cameras away as cruz was still at the podium. >> -- standing together for shared values by standing for liberty. god bless each and every one of you. >> reporter: it really got ugly here in this room as the delegates turned their anger at cruz's wife, heidi, who had to be escorted out. the cruz uproar may have overshadowed what was supposed to be the main event. >> i accept your nomination to run and serve as vice president of the united states of america. >> reporter: the prime time
3:33 am
speech of trump's vice presidential pick, indiana governor mike pence. >> i'm a christian, a conservative and a republican in that order. >> reporter: trump strode out on stage to congratulate his guy and to sort of give him an awkward air kiss. the day started with another dramatic entrance for trump. here he's touching down in his chopper. we saw him walking alongside his adult children, but interestingly, not his wife, melania. the last time we saw her here it was right after giving that now infamous speech with those striking similarities to michelle obama's convention speech from 2008. an employee of the trump organization named meredith mciver released a letter taking the blame saying melania read me some passages from mrs. obama's speech as examples. i wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. this was my mistake. left unanswered, why did melania
3:34 am
herself not recognize the similarity to the passages she had personally shared with mciver? mciver said she offered her resignation to mr. trump and the trump family, but they rejected it. the trump family continued the dominance of this convention following in the footsteps of his siblings tiffany and donald jr., eric trump taking the stage. >> vote for the one candidate that does not need this job. >> reporter: it's ivanka's turn. she's often described as her father's favorite and will introduce her dad for what will be the most important speech of his life. >> dan harris there. and hillary clinton immediately pounced tweeting, vote your conscience with a link to her website. chris christie was furious calling cruz selfish and trump took a swipe at cruz for not honoring the pledge to candidates made to support the nominee. but he said it was no big deal. let's get more now from marcy gonzalez. she is in cleveland.
3:35 am
marcy, take us back to that moment toward the end of ted cruz's speech. >> yeah, the crowd absolutely erupted in boos. it was the loudest we've heard the crowd so far in this convention. once they realized that cruz was not going to endorse trump. he made one mention there in the beginning of the speech, congratulating trump in getting the nomination, but then never mentioned his name again. as you heard there, heidi cruz and cruz's father were getting yelled at and heckled. they were brought out. and trump, as you mentioned, tweeted he didn't honor the pledge to endorse the nominee, saying i saw his speech earlier and let him speak anyway. no big deal. and overnight cruz was at his hotel and greeted from cheers by his delegation. he was asked why he didn't endorse trump and he gave a really vague answer. he said i laid out a simple standard for a president who be
3:36 am
faithful to the constitution. i hope very much that is who the next president will be. i'm not sure what that means? >> many people calling it political suicide what he did. so what's ahead in the final day here? >> reporter: we know ted cruz has an event with the texas delegation in the morning, so he'll definitely be asked about that again. but then it's on to the final day of the convention. the theme is "make america one again" and it is all about donald trump. so he'll be introduced by his daughter ivanka and then he'll formally accept the nomination. >> that's marcy gonzalez live from cleveland for us. thank you. a high pressure system that forecasters call a heat dome is suffocating a lot of the country, and experts say it's not moving away any time soon. >> that heat dome is pushing conditions to their hottest points so far this summer. joining us is accuweather's paul williams joining us with the details. paul, good morning. >> good morning, diane and kendis. we have a dominant high pressure system that began picking a
3:37 am
fight with everybody in the midwest with heat that reaches from houston and the gulf up toward north and south dakota and the great lakes. this spreads like a wildfire, and this heat will expand as the high pressure system journeys more to the northeast. widespread heat hitting thursday and friday in areas where they're not used to it. triple digits everywhere, even as far north as the most northern tip of wisconsin going into minnesota. this intense heat will continue to grow, but with that in mind, around it we have a bit of a ring of fire happening. scattered showers on the outer fringes of this heat. in here are various heat watches and warnings. kendis, diane? >> our thanks to paul. it's been a terrible night mare for people trying to fly southwest airlines. thousands of flights were delayed or canceled yesterday after a ground stop blamed on technical issues. people couldn't check in or check their flight status. last night the airline tweeted it was still manually checking
3:38 am
in passengers. police in north miami, florida, are under scrutiny following the shooting of an unarmed black man. videos show the man with his hands in the air, laying on the ground. the person sitting next to him is an autistic man who kinsey cares for. he was trying to get the man back to facility after he wandered off. you can see one police officer nearby there. kinsey can be heard saying he nor the patient had a gun as his patient was apparently shouting "shut up!" the officer then apparently fired three shots hitting kinsey in the leg. >> i said, i got shot. i said, why did you shoot me? and his words to me, he said, i don't know. >> the officer who fired the shot hasn't been identified. and has been put on administrative leave. kinsey's family said they want the officer punished. they say they were there at the scene responding to reports of a man with a gun.
3:39 am
also caught on camera, a man in southern california setting brush fires. a photographer live streamed the whole event. the man running around lighting fires and screaming. he suffered from second-degree burns and was arrested for arson. the fire grew to more than a dozen acres and charred a couple of power poles. no structures damaged. also in southern california officials are hoping to reopen five miles of coastline after a sewage spill. there was a spill of 2 million gallons into storm drains that feed into the los angeles river. tests tuesday show no excessive levels of bacteria along the beaches. whales are having a field day -- wow, with folks looking for a little recreation on the water. this kayaker was out for a day of fishing on half-moon bay when
3:40 am
he nearly up-ended by a group of humpback whales. not exactly the type of catch he expected to lure in. >> earlier this week in roughly the same spot, a paddle boarder had her own close encounter with high-spirited hump back. and it was just a few days before that we saw a group of kayakers watching hump backs in a feeding frenzy. >> half-moon bay is very popular with whale watching. >> understandably so. >> this is a little bit closer encounter than we're used to. >> yes, maybe a little too close. >> yep. coming up, what we're learning about indiana governor mike pence. america got a crash on who he is and what he stands for from the stage of the republican national conventional. and the next place you'll soon be finding pokemon's hit characters. we'll have details coming up in "the skinny." you're watching "world news now." >> "world news now" weather brought to you by life alert. news now" weather

one of the biggest unknowns in donald trump's run for the white house. that is until last night. >> so quite a few americans hadn't even heard of governor mike pence. so what did we learn about pence that we didn't know before? >> joining us with the details is adrienne banker. he seemed to do pretty well last night. >> oh, my goodness. this is a formal introduction for all of us as well as to the republican party. indiana governor, mike pence, who hit it out of the park for trump and the gop. humbly recounting his childhood. the son of a korean war veteran.
3:45 am
he spoke about faith and family. his son michael in the crowd as well as his two daughters. michael training to be a marine pilot. he also spoke about how he was originally a democrat. his heros, jfk and dr. martin luther king jr. he switched parties during the ronald reagan era, and he was ready to join the campaign for trump in a heartbeat saying the country needs a common sense policies of trump. one of the most touching moments when he recognized his mother in the audience. >> my mother is here. [ applause ] >> would you join me in welcoming the light of my life, my mom, nancy? >> and he spoke about his mother. he spoke about his father who has since passed away. his wife of 31 years, karen, and we mentioned the kids a little earlier. charlotte, adrienne and michael. they were there joining him on stage. pence later acknowledged trump's children, saying you can't fake good kids.
3:46 am
