"your voice, your vote," the republican national convention. and good morning, america. from cleveland we know it's hot for so many of you today and, boy, was it hot in this convention hall last night. the most electric moment yet of this convention. >> yeah, let's take a look at it. former candidate ted cruz booed offstage after he refused to publicly endorse donald trump and trump watching it all from the wings. >> trump walked in in those last few seconds of the cruz speech
7:02 am
after cruz said not vote for donald trump but vote for your conscience. he knew exactly what he was doing and trying to stare him down a little bit and it wasn't his only dramatic entrance of the day. check this out, as well. he actually buzzed a ted cruz rally earlier in the day with his plane right there. he knew what he was doing there, as well. it was all about the entrances this week for donald trump so far. we remember that smoke on monday night. >> yes, hard to forget. >> tonight the most important one, he's got to give that speech and when i sat -- went to his suite yesterday to talk about this in our exclusive interview he seemed ready for it but he knows this is a big challenge. >> what kind of mood was he in? >> pretty great. pretty mellow for donald trump. i think he's been enjoying this week but there has been a lot of controversy on this convention floor. >> there certainly has and tom llamas has been standing by for all of it, he was there for it last night. good morning to you. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. i was right there just steps from senator ted cruz when he entered there was an extended standing ovation.
7:03 am
the crowd was loving his speech every moment of it until they realized this speech was not about donald trump. overnight, an incredible moment at the republican national convention. senator ted cruz launching a one-man mutiny not endorsing trump and getting booed offstage. >> and god bless the united states of america. >> reporter: the problem started when cruz said this -- >> stand and speak and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the constitution. >> reporter: the new york delegation leading the charge against cruz with boos and chants of we want trump. [ chanting ] >> we want trump, we want trump. >> i appreciate the enthusiasm of the new york delegation. >> reporter: the boos then spreading to other states and,
7:04 am
as cruz faced down a tidal wave of hecklers, donald trump entering the convention hall. cruz making a quick exit. this video shows cruz's wife heidi in the yellow dress forced to leave the convention floor as things started to get ugly. the headline this morning, "civil war." trump supporters like governor chris christie were sickened by the texas senator's speech. >> it was an awful, selfish speech by someone who tonight through the words he said on that stage showed everybody why he has richly earned the reputation that he has on capitol hill. >> reporter: cruz who we caught up with last night disagrees. >> i feel very encouraged by the very warm reception. >> reporter: cruz's day of reckoning at the convention follows a long year where he faced endless taunts from trump. >> you know i say he walks in with a bible held high, he walks in, it's lyin' ted, bible held
7:05 am
high, puts it down and then he starts to lie. >> reporter: so, with all this bad blood, why did the trump campaign let him take the stage? trump tweeting, wow, ted cruz got booed off the stage, didn't honor the pledge. i saw his speech two hours early but let him speak anyway. no big deal. donald trump jr. explaining his dad wasn't going to prevent a fellow republican from speaking. >> you see this room, when people like to make the story and create the dialogue about disunity, the best unity i saw was everyone booing him off the stage. >> reporter: trump's son eric took his turn on stage last night delivering an impassioned speech on behalf of his father despite repeated technical glitches which left him speaking in front of dark screens. this morning, cruz addressing the texas delegation and still defiant. >> attack my wife and attack my father -- >> vote for the candidate who can't be bought, sold, purchased, bribed, coerced, intimidated or steered from the path that is right and just and true.
7:06 am
[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: the cruz party foul overshadowing governor mike pence's powerful and endearing speech to the convention. >> we have but one choice and that man is ready. this team is ready. our party is ready and when we elect donald trump, the 45th president of the united states, together we will make america great again! [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: and the night ending on an awkward moment. watch as donald trump tries to give mike pence an air kiss. those air kisses can always be a little awkward. let's get back to that cruz moment after the convention last night hillary clinton took to twitter essentially quoting cruz's speech saying vote your conscience, and early this morning ted cruz sending out a note to supporters, a fund-raising e-mail. amy and george. >> he's already looking ahead to 2020.
7:07 am
let's admit it, those air kisses are always awkward here with our political team and get to last night and a lot more in a minute. but, right now, let's get to my exclusive interview with donald trump. he opened up about that firestorm over melania's speech. what he needs to do tonight and how it felt to be put over the top by his kids. take us back to that moment, all your kids up there putting you over the top. >> congratulations, dad. we love you! >> reporter: more proud of them or yourself? >> maybe more proud of them. it was so beautiful to see and the arena was unbelievable, the excitement. >> how do you keep it going? what's the job you have to do? >> well, i'm talking about trade. i'm talking about law and order and i'm going to be talking about borders. i'll be talking about many different things, our country has a lot of problems. we're weak in so many different ways and i think i'll be basically using the same message and giving the same message, george, that i've been talking about for a long time. >> but, you know, we haven't heard a lot of your big applause lines at your convention so far. nothing about the ban on muslim immigration. >> there has to be a temporary ban. >> nothing about the border wall
7:08 am
paid by mexico. >> we'll build a wall. we have to. we have to. >> are you going to talk about that tomorrow night? >> you'll be hearing a lot of things tomorrow. i haven't spoken yet. >> speech done? >> just about, yeah, just about. >> so, a lot of people here think you're going to have to evolve as you go into the general election. that's what newt gingrich told me. do you buy that? >> look, i am who i am. i'm a very honest person. i think that my message is a good message. it got me here. we had almost 14 million votes. that's more votes than anybody in the history of the republican party. there's something happening, george, and people are tired of what's going on. they're tired -- they're sick and tired of what's going on. >> you plowed through this primary field -- there's no question about that -- but what's the unfinished business for the general election? in our poll, 60% still think you're unqualified. how do you bring that number down? >> i think i'm very qualified but don't forget, hillary is spending hundreds of millions on ads. you know what i spent so far?
7:09 am
nothing, nothing. i -- >> not till after her convention. >> oh, yeah, i don't want to waste money this early. it's like a racehorse. a racehorse way back and -- i'm not looking to do anything now but we're raising a lot of money, 51 million last month and i put in a lot of money. i'm over $60 million that i've put in. i spent 3.8 million last month. >> are you going to spend more -- >> oh, yeah, this is an important thing for the country. >> how about this speech by melania? >> thank you. >> we learned today that someone who works for you, meredith mciver, offered her resignation. why not accept it? weren't you angry? >> she's been with me a long time, she's a very good person. she came to see me because she hated to see the conflict and she made a mistake and, you know, people make mistakes. you've made mistakes. we all make mistakes, and i thought it was terrific how she came forward and say, look, it was a mistake that i made and she thought it was very unfair to melania, although interestingly, the press treated
7:10 am
her well because they didn't think it was her. >> how is she handling all this? >> it's a different world. you know, it's a different world. who would ever think to this extent, no matter where you move, no matter where you breathe, it's like a big deal, but she handles it well. she is a strong woman. she is a good woman. i thought she made an incredible speech and i thought -- she made a beautiful speech. >> she had that hall. >> she had that hall. totally had that hall and now that cloud is lifted off her which is terrific because it was very unfair. i think it was very unfair although i will say the media, they did not think she had anything to do with it. which is nice. >> you have had some amazing entrances this week -- emerged out of the smoke and the helicopter today. how do you top it? >> you're going to stay tuned and be there. you will definitely be there. i'm not looking for entrance, george. i'm looking for a good, really a good grouping of words that's going to talk about our country and the problems that we have. we have deep problems. we have really deep-seated problems so it's not about the entrance. it's about the words and it's about getting the words done and the only way we're going to get
7:11 am
that taken care of is we have to in november do very well. >> i was with you the day you announced. little more than a year ago. did you ever believe on that day you'd be standing here right now as the nominee of the republican party. >> you know, george, this is beyond what i would have even assumed. but people have asked me the question and i guess the answer has to be yes or i don't think i would have done it. i mean, i don't play to lose so i assume i thought somewhere deep down that i was going to do well. >> he still thinks he's going to win in november as well. big night for him tonight. we are going to talk about that and all the drama last night as well with our political team -- donna brazile, matthew dowd and jon karl. and, jon, that was just a few hours before ted cruz came out, didn't endorse. you saw the anger on donald trump's face when he walked in to that hall last night. he knew exactly what he was doing. but this drama is not what they wanted last night. >> look, it completely overshadows a very strong speech and a unifying speech by mike pence.
7:12 am
it overshadows a very strong speech by his son eric trump. but donald trump knew this would happen. ted cruz spoke to him on monday and told him he would not be endorsing him. they had the speech at least two hours before cruz took that stage. >> so, matt, is ted cruz an outlier or is the republican party that divided? >> well, to me, this was political theater at its finest. it's almost shakespearian in the course of it and i think differently. it's like julius caesar but donald trump turned it around, and instead of et tu, brute, it was cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. donald trump has a unified party behind him. this is his party and ted cruz walked into his party and turned over the chairs. >> unified party? >> no, george, first of all, there's a large public park called freedom plaza and last night donald trump should have said, ted, why don't you go to freedom plaza and give that speech. this is a battle for the soul of the party at a time when donald trump needs the party behind him so that he can pivot the party
7:13 am
last night, basically is not ready. >> we already saw hillary clinton taking advantage of that in her tweet of what happened last night with cruz. >> who knew that hillary clinton could tweet at the proper time? >> donald trump will get a bump from last night's events. donald trump will get a bump from last night's events. >> we've been replaying the primary. the convention starts with a fight with john kasich and ends here with a fight with ted cruz. i mean, this has not been a unifying convention. >> and a vanquished foe is laying on the stage. that's going to benefit donald trump. >> in the long term it may benefit donald trump but, when you need the entire republican party unified to go into the general election, they're walking out of this convention tonight -- >> 90% are behind him. >> -- not ready to reach -- >> actually coming into tonight, coming into the week about 82%. you're banking on -- >> yes. >> but let's talk about what he needs to do tonight. because so far in this convention we've heard from his kids about him, not from too many -- we haven't heard too much about what he's going to do as president. what are the big three things he
7:14 am
needs to do in this speech tonight? >> well, the total success of a convention is going to be -- is bound by tonight. you either rise or fall in a convention based on the speech of the nominee of the party tonight. the pressure is all on donald trump in the course of this. i think it's less of a series of specific issues but it's more can he be the genuine donald trump and make a turn to where people start seeing him, not republican, i think that's done, and moving on as to independent voters out of there, can he begin to bring a message that i see him in the oval office. >> jon karl, can he do that and still fire up his base with those signature lines we showed that worked for him in the primary. >> donald trump knows that this is the most important speech of this convention, the most important speech of the campaign, the most important speech of his political life, and the challenge here is being able to do that. he has been practicing this, george, i am told for weeks. donald trump doesn't do a lot of practicing of anything. he has been working on this practicing it. he wants america to be able to look up there and envision him as president of the united states. >> stop preaching to the choir
7:15 am
because that's what the republicans like to do. start looking at the congregation. if donald trump can get away from that teleprompter and finally tell america here's how we come together, here's how we solve problems, otherwise he won't be seen as a problem solver but somebody who starts problems. >> does he try to appeal to independents tonight? >> he has to. he has to turn as donna said turn the choir to the pews. and talk to the real people. he has to talk to the independent voters. >> thanks, guys. you'll all be here with us. and the democratic convention kicks off on monday and hillary clinton is expected to announce her running mate any day now. abc's cecilia vega has the latest on all of that in miami. and, cecilia, we have heard a lot of names mentioned over the past few weeks but clinton does appear to be narrowing her list. >> reporter: well, it seems like she's narrowing the list, amy, but i'll tell you this process has been shrouded in secrecy. let me tell you what we do know. hillary clinton in recent days has met with a number of her top contenders. sources tell me that recent
7:16 am
events here at home and abroad had her shift her focus a little bit in terms of what she's looking for in a running mate and she's now looking for someone with a significant amount of national security experience, so let's talk about many so of these names. right now, among the possible picks labor secretary tom perez, agriculture secretary tom vilsack, he is a longtime clinton friend. but, amy, this morning the name that seems to be rising to the top of the pack is virginia senator tim kaine. he is on the senate armed services committee and foreign relations committee, amy, he also speaks spanish. that's a huge plus for hillary clinton in terms of that latino demographic that she wants to win going into november. >> all right, cecilia, what about the timing? when can we expect to hear something from hillary on this? >> reporter: well, we're told that she could appear with whoever her pick ends up being right here in florida at some point over the next couple of days. this would be a big rally likely on friday, maybe saturday, amy. right before the democratic convention, for sure. >> all right, cecilia vega, thank you so much. and now to some breaking news affecting the summer
7:17 am
olympics. a major setback for russia in the wake of a widespread doping scandal. today, the highest appeals court in international sports upheld a decision banning the russian track and field team from the rio games next month, the court ruling that a collective ban is valid. analysts say today's decision increases the likelihood that the international olympic committee will ban all russian athletes from the summer games and that decision could come sunday. russian president vladimir putin has warned banning russia from the games could split the entire olympic movement. and, well, this is a turn just when you thought the pokemon go craze couldn't get any bigger, it did. 9,000 players invaded san francisco for a pokemon crawl featuring food and drink specials and dance parties. the organizer had a good tip for players warning them not to run into trees and parking meters, always, always good to remember that. the game continues to raise safety concerns, however, take a look at this in baltimore. video from a police body camera shows an suv crashing into a parked police cruiser. the driver admits he was not

paying attention because he was playing pokemon go. and look at this, in new jersey a woman actually got stuck up in a tree trying to catch a pokemon. we are not making this up. >> hey, you have to be making this up. >> i'm not making it up, george. >> okay. i thought it was crazy here in the convention. >> george is speechless. okay, let's go back to ginger in new york. boy, this heat is something. >> george, amy, perhaps we can stop pokemon go with this because you're not going to want to go outdoors and catch any pokemon. the heat advisories, this is when it gets to dangerous levels so the heat warning, anyone that is highlighted in pink from illinois back to minnesota, iowa, it's not just the numbers in the 90s but it's when you add the dew points to the mid to upper 70s, that humidity level that will make it feel like 113 in des moines or 115 in minneapolis, kansas city, 108, and thenhat heat dome moves east. here we get it by saturday afternoon.

>> george, unfortunately, this is not rare and happened before to southwest and it happened about four times in the last few years to united and american airlines. it happens a lot more than you might think. >> well, i mean, how does this happen, george, in this day and age in 2016 a computer glitch or whatever, a snafu, whatever they're saying, and how can it be prevented? >> well, amy, you'd think that the airlines would have their act together but their technology is so old and they have been losing money for many many years, not recently of course, and they haven't invested in technology enough. if you ever go to an airport you see they're clicking on -- old-fashioned keyboards and don't even have a mouse to move around. it's like 1960s technology. >> how much of a difference is the heat wave going to make with travel? >> believe it or not, after a certain temperature, airplanes cannot take off for aerodynamic reasons or engines don't function the same way, and they have to have a longer runway and they may cancel flights and/or kick people off planes to make the plane lighter so it can take off. >> all right, lots of fun to look forward to over the next
7:41 am
couple of days, george. >> oh, yeah. >> thank you very much. >> sure. turn now to florida where health department officials are investigating what could be the first case of locally spread zika virus in the continental united states. and dr. richard besser joins us now from outside the cdc and, rich, it's believed that the patient in question has not traveled anywhere outside of the united states so they ruled out other factors. so, what does this mean for the spread of zika? >> well, you know, if the infection wasn't picked up by travel and if it wasn't picked up by having sex with someone who traveled, it could represent the first case of zika that was spread locally from a mosquito. this is something that local public health has been looking for and we have the mosquito that can transmit it in many parts of the country. hopefully with aggressive action they'll be able to prevent further spread. >> so, what are they doing about this, the florida department of health? >> well, you know, they're doing a lot more investigative work to determine whether or not it was spread by mosquitoes or some other way. i talked to cdc, they're consulting on that.
7:42 am
but they're not waiting for the answer. they're taking aggressive action and taken steps to reduce mosquitoes by spraying. they're testing more mosquitoes. they're passing out zika prevention kits with condoms and repellent and information sheets. hopefully those steps will help reduce spread if it's being spread by a local mosquito. >> hey, rich, how alarmed are you by this news? >> well, this is something we have expected and, you know, it's a good time, a good reminder for people, use repellent if you're in areas where mosquitoes are spreading. make sure your screens are repaired and get rid of any free standing water that could breed more. those things could definitely help. >> and what are you saying about travel now as we head into the summer both here in the united states and overseas? >> well, you know, if you're going south to brazil and the olympic games it's a low season for mosquitoes. if you're going to the southern united states, if you're going to the caribbean, it's high time for mosquitoes so, you have to look to see where you're going and take proper precautions. there are things you can do to reduce your risk and, remember, it's all about protecting pregnant women. for other people, this is a very
7:43 am
minor infection. >> okay, thank you, rich. thanks for joining us today. and now, as we wind down here in cleveland the republican convention, we heard a lot of celebs, like lena dunham and demi lovato announcing they'll speak at the democratic national convention next week. matthew dowd is here with us, as well. there's always a little, you know, arms war, arms race with the celebrities at the conventions. who is winning? >> well, i think we're seeing a celebritization of our culture and our politics in the course of this and i'm fascinated by four years ago we had a politician sarah palin become a reality tv star celebrity. now this year we have a reality tv star celebrity becoming a politician and leader of the gop primary. i think it has two effects. it's a multiplier effect. because they have celebrities and they have a large audience and are able to spread your message wider. the second thing, unlike a lot of us who are very interested in politics, there's a lot of voters out there who connect only in different ways and not necessarily through the
7:44 am
intensity of some substance and celebrity allows them, the politicians to get in the living room in a different way of passive voters. >> can it be warned? because there have been instances where having a celebrity endorse you sometimes creates a negative effect. >> yes, it can. one can be that you become part of the hollywood culture and for the working class, middle class folks out there, they don't want you to be part of the hollywood culture, but we saw an instance in 2012 of a celebrity clint eastwood speaking to an empty chair. was not well received and didn't help the convention process at all. >> completely ad-libbed that speech. nobody knew what was coming. kind of amazing. how about political star power, though. one of the things we've seen this week at the republican convention, the trump family were stars every single night, capped off tonight by donald trump, very different at the democratic convention next week. you'll have the president of the united states, the first lady of the united states, the vice president, former president bill clinton, they've got the political stars out there. >> oh, i think it's a huge dramatic difference, as you say. the democrats, it's all political leadership and it's all people who have practiced
7:45 am
their entire life in politics. for the republicans now it's a family that's never been in politics this way who have become part of the celebrity culture in the course of this and presented themselves now as the new leadership to take on the old -- the traditional political style of the country. >> very different. >> yeah. >> thanks very much. >> matt, thanks. thanks to dr. besser and george, as well. coming up next, kissing at the convention. could a lip-lock on stage make or break a campaign? and what will happen when donald trump and melania take the stage tonight? we'll be right back. trump and melania take the stage tonight? we'll be right back.

calories, but you put fewer vegetables, more fats, a protein from the hot bar, hello, fried chicken, and you add in white dressing. >> i'm thinking it's somewhere in the calorie range of 800 calories. and i would think that it would be comparable to what's under here. so here we've got a fried crispy chicken sandwich and a side salad. >> that's incredible. okay, next up in our salad bar game show, true or false, a scoop or two of those yummy premade salads is okay. i'm eating way less fat than if i had a sandwich or burger, right? sorry, no, we bought a few of these mystery concoctions from salad bars and sent them to a lab to be analyzed. i see these premade salads and think, ah, a scoop won't hurt me. >> a scoop of this is 19 grams of fat and 106% of your daily value for fat. >> reporter: in case you need a visual. >> that's as much fat as in a fast-food cheeseburger.

8:24 am
eat as many as you want, just go baseball size, whatever, tomatoes, load these on. now into a little more portion control. half cup size. the half cup is about a tennis ball size, so chickpeas, maybe a little bit less. these add a lot of texture and a lot of protein, a lot of fiber. then you got your lean proteins here with your egg whites, again, keeping it in the tennis ball size. now we move on to our lean proteins. >> and this is golf ball size. >> not quite. i wish -- i should have put it out here. i need a deck of cards. i didn't want to commingle gambling and sports so -- >> turkey is good for you. >> yes, so you can put a deck of cards there. looking for your lean proteins. now we go to the masters. >> all right, so, fats, but that are good for you. >> golf ball size and marbles when you get into your vinaigrettes. >> so this is very, very healthy eating. >> this is a 400-calorie salad. >> wow. you know who is also healthy ginger zee. and she's outside with the weather now. >> jesse, i was just saying i do the old salad lie a lot. a lot of lying to myself. that's all right. hey, these ladies, i said out here, can anyone tell me something, a story. anything to entertain? why are you here?
