7:02 am
because he says he has been famous for a really long time, this level of a lack of privacy is something he never expected. >> he reveals what he misses the most. it's going to surprise a lot of people. it's driving. i never pictured donald trump driving. >> no, neither did i. >> i pictured him in the back of a big limo. >> we're going to have more on that and of course we're tracking a lot of big stories for you this morning. just one day to go before president trump reaches the milestone first 100 days in office. congress has until midnight to strike a deal and avoid a government shutdown. overnight, republicans decided to hold off on a health care vote. president trump heads south this afternoon to address the nra. he'll be the first president to speak to the gun lobby group since president reagan, some 34 years ago. >> we'll have much more on that in just a bit, but first, to our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz for the latest on president trump's tough talk on north korea. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, amy. tensions are already so high with north korea and this fiery rhetoric ramps it up even higher. overnight, a jaw-dropping statement from the president.
7:03 am
>> well, there's a -- there's a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with north korea. absolutely. >> reporter: the comments coming just one day after the president and his top national security advisers briefed congress on the tense situation, calling north korea an urgent national security threat. on wednesday, admiral harry harris, the commander of u.s. pacific command, suggested placing ground-based missile intercepters in hawaii. >> kim jong-un is clearly in a position to threaten hawaii today. >> reporter: a u.s. military strike on north korea could put american allies, japan and south korea, as well as u.s. forces in the area at risk of a retaliatory response. from north korean forces. when asked if the president trump considered north korean leader kim jong-un to be
7:04 am
ration rational, the president saying, i hope he's rational, noting that kim jong-un took over the regime at a young age. saying, he's 27 years old. his father dies, took over a regime. so say what you want, but that is not easy, especially at that age. president trump saying of the crisis in north korea, we would love to solve things diplomatically. but it's very difficult. secretary of state rex tillerson and defense secretary james mattis earlier issuing a joint statement saying, we remain open to negotiations toward that goal. however, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies. the goal, of course, to pressure north korea to dismantle its nuclear and ballistic missile program, as north korea prepares for what could be yet another nuclear test. robin? >> thank you, martha. as the president closes in on the milestone 100 days in office, he's not only facing rising tensions with north korea, but also challenges he did not expect in office.
7:05 am
our senior white house correspondent, cecilia vega with those details for us from washington. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hi, robin, good morning to you. the president is reflecting back on his life before he moved into the white house here. 99 days in, and now an admission this morning, this job is a lot harder than he thought it would be. >> i loved my previous life. i had so many things going. this is more work than in my previous life. i thought it would be easier. >> reporter: on the eve of his 100th day, president trump making the admission in the reuters interview. he's kicking off his milestone with an historic visit, speaking in front of a friendly audience. >> you gun owners better get out there and vote, i'll tell you. you better get out. >> reporter: the president appearing at the nra's annual meeting in atlanta on the campaign trail. >> we're going to save your second amendment, which is under siege. as you know, the nra endorsed me with the earliest endorsement they've ever given. >> reporter: but as the president takes center stage, he is keeping quiet about new questions involving his former
7:06 am
national security adviser's ties to russia. >> any regrets about michael flynn? >> thank you very much. >> reporter: the pentagon's top watchdog examining whether lieutenant general mike flynn broke the law, telling congress, it has initiated an investigation about whether flynn failed to obtain required approval before accepting thousands of dollars in business from a foreign government. those payments including $45,000 flynn in moscow in 2015. president trump later firing flynn in part because he failed to fully disclose his ties to russia. democrats releasing this letter from the military showing the year before flynn's trip to russia, he was specifically warned foreign compensation requires advanced approval. democrats sounding the alarm, accusing the white house of a coverup. questioning why the trump administration won't turn over
7:07 am
flynn's hiring documents. >> it makes the american people think the white house has something to hide. >> reporter: the white house pushing back. >> i was, frankly, taken back by his comments today because they're frankly not true. >> reporter: now, sean spicer was asked if he is comfortable with the vetting flynn received before the president named him his national security adviser. whether maybe the administration missed any red flags. spicer's response, it was the obama administration that was responsible for flynn's most recent background check. robin. >> all right, cecilia, thank you. amy? joining us now is the attorney general of the united states, jeff sessions. thank you for joining us. as we just heard, national security advisor michael flynn under investigation by the defense department for accepting those foreign payments. will the justice department be investigating, as well? >> well, they'll do their responsibility, whatever that is, and what we always do. i'm not involved in that investigation, and don't participate in it, and i don't know anything about it.
7:08 am
>> you have recused yourself from investigating anything involving the presidential campaign. you would not also be involved in anything regarding michael flynn. >> i don't expect to, no. yes. >> you're a key member of the national security team obviously. do you have concerns about how members of your team, including michael flynn, were vetted before accepting this position? >> michael flynn is not part of my team. he was part of the white house adviser on the national security issues. we need to do a good job of vetting that. that's a complex issue. i'm not sure anyone can be expected to find that. >> are you comfortable with the level of vetting that was done? >> i'm comfortable that they're working hard to do vetting. it's obvious, oftentimes, you don't catch everything. there might be a problem. i don't know the facts of the case. maybe there's an explanation for it. >> you're going to long island to speak about violent crime and gangs. tell us what the purpose of your visit is, and what your message will be. >> we see this ms-13 gang that
7:09 am
has been involved in that area as a national threat, really. it's grown dramatically. it now has 10,000 members in the united states. it's being organized and led from el salvador, from prison, actually. they're sending a lot of money back. they're prostituting girls as young as 12. they're using extortion and murder. we're going to go after them. they can be defeated. >> you're expected to be greeted in long island by some protesters. new york assemblyman phil ramos says that the issues around gangs are complex and that making this a part of the debate about immigration, quote, this is an attempt by the trump administration and mr. sessions to justify their belief that immigrants are people who intrinsically have a propensity for violence. what's your response to that? >> immigrants are great for america. we admit 1.1 million a year every year legally. that's the system we have and we believe in and will support.
7:10 am
but persons do not have the right to enter the country illegally, and if they commit crimes, they should be tried and convicted like anyone else, and then deported as the law requires. that's what we're talking about. enforcing the law fairly and objectively and we're targeting the criminal element first. >> mr. ramos says you're implying that the fact that you're an undocumented immigrant makes you more likely to commit a crime. do you believe that? >> what i'm saying is we're going to tell the truth. the truth is many of the people involves in gangs today, and much of the drugs being distributed in america today are being distributed by illegal aliens. they're coming mostly from mexico. many of these gangs now are central american gangs. many of them did come as -- unaccompanied minors. that does appear to be the case. >> you said you're here to tell the truth, so you believe the truth is that if you're an
7:11 am
undocumented immigrant you're more like to to be a criminal? >> amy, i didn't say that. >> i was just trying to let you clarify. >> what i'm saying is that those who are here unlawfully, many of them are undocumented aliens who commit crimes, should be tried like anyone else, and deported. >> tomorrow is president trump's 100th day in office. in an interview on thursday, he said, i loved my previous life. i had so many things going. this is more work than my in my previous life. i thought it would be easier. you're coming up on your 100th day as attorney general. you were sworn in. how does the reality of your job compare with the expectations of it? is it harder, easier, same? >> that's a good question. it's been a seven day a week job. 12 hours a day. but really interesting and fun. we've got some great people in the department of justice with high ideals. we're going to reduce the criminal crime in america. we're going to focus on protecting american civil rights. we're going to end the lawlessness and immigration, and
7:12 am
i think we can do that, and i think we'll make american people proud. that will be our goal. >> all right, attorney general jeff sessions, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you, amy. >> thank you, amy. now to the threat of a shutdown on capitol hill. congress trying to reach a deal to keep the government running. before the midnight deadline. our congressional correspondent, mary bruce, has more on the last-minute negotiations. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. after a lot of back and forth, lawmakers this morning are expected to approve a spending measure to keep the lights on, but not for long. it's a one-week fix to buy more time for negotiators to work on a broader deal. democrats had threatened to block the short-term measure if republicans pushed for a vote on health care. after a late-night huddle here on the hill, it's clear the republicans don't have the support to get this done. house speaker paul ryan says until they have the votes, there will be no vote on health care. that means the president will hit the 100th day without a single major legislative victory. >> what do republicans have to
7:13 am
do to get a new health care reform passed? >> now that the conservatives have backed this latest bill, the political pressure is on the moderates. some of the concessions made to get conservative support is giving them cause for concern. the question now is what comes next and whether republicans can strike that balance to push this over the finish line. right now, it goes to show how divided the republican party is. >> all right, mary, thank you. now to the pope's big trip. pope francis heading to egypt this morning amid heightened security to visit christian and muslim communities after the recent terror attacks. our chief foreign correspondent terry moran is in the ground there in cairo. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, amy. pope francis was told by vatican security that in coming here he was taking a real risk. but here he is. but he's coming anyway because he wants to seize this opportunity, so cairo right now is on lockdown. tens of thousands of security personnel fanned out across the
7:14 am
city. but the threat of violence is very real. three weeks ago, two horrific bombings, isis taking credit. pope francis has decided he will hold on open air mass. part of his message, solidarity and he wants to express brotherhood across the lines in egypt and the middle east. amy? >> thank you, terry. also overseas, british authorities say they have foiled an attack plot after arresting six suspects during a dramatic raid in north london overnight. they fired tear gas into a home, and shot a female suspect before making those arrests. details of the alleged plot have not been released. the raid was not related to an arrest of a man carrying knives outside british parliament thursday. he is being held on terror charges this morning. authorities say he was known to

and a major new storm system is moving into the middle of the country bringing everything from flash flooding to snow. texas with a chance of a tornado today. first in this half hour, the new interview with the estranged wife of tad cummins, the former tennessee teacher accused of kidnapping a student. his wife is now revealing what he told her from behind bars. abc's kayna whitworth has the story. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: robin, good morning. jill cummins telling "inside edition," he told her he loves her. begged for forgiveness. but admitted to sleeping with the 15-year-old. and now jill cummins says she can't bring herself to answer any more of his phone calls. >> he said i love you. i said, i'm sorry. i'm not going to say that back. >> reporter: jill cummins, the wife of the tennessee teacher who stands accused of kidnapping his former student and having an inappropriate relationship, speaking out about their first emotional phone call exclusively with "inside edition."
7:32 am
>> it was hard. it was very hard. to hear his voice. after all this time. not knowing if i was ever going to hear it again. he told me he was sorry. he told me he loved me. and please forgive him. >> reporter: jill revealing she filed for divorce after 31 years of marriage after finding out what she feared most was true. >> i said, did you sleep with her? he said, yes, i did. i didn't want any details. >> reporter: the 50-year-old science teacher behind bars in california after leading law enforcement on a month-long, cross-country journey. taking 15-year-old elizabeth thomas through nine states before being captured in this remote cabin in california. >> he'll face a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years, quite possibly longer. >> reporter: court documents reveal his original plan was to take the victim south of the border to mexico and beyond. even getting a small water craft and conducting a test run to cross into mexico across the water from san diego. instead, cummins eluding
7:33 am
authorities for 39 days, by changing the appearance of his suv, disabling his gps and paying for items with cash. elizabeth's father saying his daughter's appearance changed during the ordeal. >> she had lost some weight, for sure. he had not been feeding her well as he should have. she said they were eating flowers and things. >> reporter: now, this morning, cummins' soon-to-be ex-wife saying their relationship is over. >> i won't let him hurt me like that again. i will not let him betray me like that ever again. i won't give him the opportunity ever again. >> reporter: "inside edition" will release more of that interview today. as for tad cummins, he's behind bars in california, facing both state and federal charges. he has not entered a plea. elizabeth is spending time with her family and a trauma team. her father saying she has good and bad days. they're expecting a long journey of healing. robin? >> i'm sure. kayna, thank you, and our chief legal analyst, dan abrams, is here.
7:34 am
how will this interview possibly impact the case? >> i think the authorities are looking for as many possible charges to levy against him as possible. and this one could add the potential for statutory rape. one of the wrinkles here is that in tennessee law, to get a kidnapping charge, if someone is over the age of 12, which she was, you need force or coercion. basically, the law in tennessee reads as if someone over the age of 12 can leave home. now, there are also federal charges in place. there are some arguments about why that shouldn't apply. i can assure you the tennessee authorities and federal authorities would like to see as many other charges as possible. >> what about marital privilege? >> the spousal privilege, as you point out, could apply. meaning that the husband, the defendant could say, i don't want her to be allowed to testify. we had a communication here in confidence. the problem is once she discloses that conversation publicly as she did in this interview, it's no longer
7:35 am
considered a confidential communication, and therefore, the spousal privilege probably wouldn't apply in this case. >> a lot of charges here. california, back where they're from, also the federal charges. >> i think there will be extradition to tennessee. i think the federal charges will be critical here. crossing state lines. again, i think this wrinkle in the tennessee kidnapping law, they think they can get around it. but the fact that you also then have the potential for federal charges, are you also have the possibility of additional charges, i think all of this makes the authorities feel a lot more comfortable than just having to rely on that tennessee law. >> thank you, dan. have a good weekend. amy? coming up next, the highs and lows of president trump's first 100 days in office. and what he didn't expect.
7:36 am
come on! dogs just won't quit. neither does frontline gold. its triple action formula is relentless at killing fleas and ticks for a full 30 days.

[ crowd chanting ] >> hundreds of thousands coming out to march. >> all the way back to the washington monument. >> the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. period. >> sean spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that. but the point really is -- >> wait a minute. alternative facts? >> the fbi is investigating the russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. >> i have nothing to do with russia. i told you. i have no deals there. i have no anything. >> if the president puts russian salad dressing tonight on his salad, somehow that's a russian connection. >> yesterday, we all made donald trump the 45th president of the united states. hooray, we did it. >> will american taxpayers pay for the wall? >> ultimately, it will come out of what is happening with mexico.
7:39 am
we'll be starting those negotiations relatively soon. >> those people who are in this country and pose a threat to our public safety or have committed a crime will be the first to go. >> what about the others who aren't? they're watching this fearful right now. >> no hate, no fear, refugees are welcome here. >> a judge has just blocked our executive order on travel and refugees. >> they're bad dudes coming in here. bad hombres. bad boys. bad boys, whatcha gonna do? >> wiretap covers a lot of different things. >> have you seen any evidence that president obama ordered an illegal wiretap of president trump? >> george, no, i haven't. >> this is fake news. >> the press should be ashamed of themselves. >> please stop shaking your head again. >> when i say rocky start i mean it in the sense of "rocky" the movie because i came out here to punch you, okay? and also, i don't talk so good. >> further consideration of
7:40 am
hr-1268 is postponed. >> obamacare is the law of the land. it will remain the law of the land until it's replaced. >> the nomination of neil m. gorsuch is confirmed. >> i'm a fair judge. >> mike flynn is a fine person. and i asked for his resignation. he respectfully gave it. >> any chance ivanka might have an office in the white house? >> we'll have to see what happens. >> go buy ivanka's stuff. i'm going to give a free commercial here. >> kellyanne's been counseled. >> trump is back on social media, tweeting again. >> overnight, the president tweeted. >> now the president has weighed in on twitter. >> any message for north korea? >> gotta behave. >> let's get right to the breaking news overnight. president trump's military strike on syria. >> tonight, i call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in syria. i don't think that there is a presidential period of time in the first 100 days where anyone's done nearly what we have been able to do.
7:41 am
>> our political consultant matthew dowd joins us now from austin, texas. 99 days in, and a lot has happened after watching that. what has been trump's worst moment so far? >> i would say the low point of his presidency was the saturday morning in march when he got up in the morning and sent a series of tweets, falsely accusing the former president, president obama, of wiretapping. that had to be, for a president, this president, probably the lowest point so far. >> but did nothing much to the people who voted for him with those new polls coming out. pretty interesting. what has been his best moment so far? >> when you look at this president, when he put his hand on the bible and took the oath of office, from most polls, he's drifted down ever since. in one sense, that's the high point. i would say, his nomination. and then being able to secure neil gorsuch to the supreme court. it's a big deal. he'll probably be on the supreme court for 30 years. in my view, that's probably the most significant point so far of his presidency.
7:42 am
>> we heard president trump last night saying the job is harder than he thought it would be. what does he need to do going forward? >> well, you know, we're at the end of the 100 days. the 100 days is a sprint. the presidency is marathon. he has to prepare himself for that. i would forget about the first 100 days we have just gone through, and concentrate on the next 1,000 days. presidents are usually defined by a crisis. he needs to get the situation room ready. he needs to know who's in those chairs that's going to make the decision. just like john f. kennedy in the cuban missile crisis, presidents are fundamentally defined by response to crisis. so that is what i would concentrate on if i were donald trump. >> matt dowd, thanks so much. we appreciate it. >> great to be here. >> michael? >> thank you, amy. coming up on our big board, amazon's new tool to help you pick the perfect outfit. but is it a threat to your privacy? that's the big question. plus, why millions are watching this heineken ad and comparing it to the pepsi one. talk about that when we come back in two minutes. n two minutes.

when this man is here, donny deutsch, at the table. cannot wait to talk to you about that story. >> yeah, excited. >> first we're going to start with amazon's alexa. it's getting a makeover. we know the virtual tool can hear you, but now she'll be able to see you. no problem here, right? the new echo look. it acts as a virtual fashion assistant using a built-in wi-fi camera to give style advice. it's sparking major privacy concerns, as you can imagine. becky worley joins us now. i don't know if alexa would want me to wear these slippers that i have on right now. maybe i need it. can you explain the purpose behind this? >> this is a device squarely aimed at women. fashion forward women. the camera connects with your smartphone. it gives you a realtime rear view when you turn your back to it. amazon has created a sophisticated device that
7:46 am
answers the question, does my butt look big in these pants? you can snap selfies of your outfits. catalog them. it has an algorithm that compares two outfits and decides what looks better. maybe not those slippers. amazon has given no release date for the product yet. my prediction, once it's out, virtual try-ons of clothing. imagine you snap a picture with jeans and a sweater. amazon super imposes a purse that matches your outfit. amazon, always helping you buy more from amazon. >> a lot of privacy advocates out there say there are a lot of red flags about this device. they don't know what amazon will do with the pictures or even how this camera works. have they explained that? >> they have. the privacy concerns are real. the amazon echo has a microphone that's always on listening for commands. amazon says the new-look camera is only on when you manually turn it on. come on, a camera in your bedroom or closet? can you say hacker bait?
7:47 am
also, you're giving amazon a lot of information. what's your skin color, your measurements? are you pregnant? they say they will not sell that information to third party marketers. but, robin, you're the most stylish person i know, are you switching over to this device and deandre is out of the job? your stylist? >> no, i'll stick with deandre. he's giving me a hard time about the slippers. i'll change when i go upstairs. >> i'm surprised at the sexism on "gma." this is not just for women who want to know what their butts look like. >> donny, do you want to speak out? >> michael and i could use this. >> don't throw me in there. thank you, becky. donny, you're here because we're going to talk about this heineken, their pull off on politics. on the heels of the controversial kendall jenner ad by pepsi. the beer giant is trying to succeed where pepsi didn't. releasing its own politically charged commercial, a four-minute social experiment bringing together people with opposing social views. we're going to look at it right now.

[ laughter ] >> i got chills. >> pretty powerful. very powerful. this is part of a broader marketing campaign.
7:49 am
what is heineken trying to do? do you think it's effective? >> bravo. to your point, i was watching everybody in the studio. they are mesmerized. this contrasts with pepsi. there's a thing now called commercials with a conscience. that is the zeitgeist. every advertiser wants to plug into what is now pop culture, and that's politics, and pepsi did it wrong. they said, give pepsi to a police officer, and he won't get in a fight with a black lives matter protester. versus heineken who is displaying this message, hey, we're not so different. to see that, i literally got chills, but they don't overplay their hand. it's not, like, heineken is solving the problem. they had them building a bar together. then there was a reason. sit down, talk it over. marvelous message. they did not overplay their hand. >> that's why it's so effective. and the big difference between the two. >> pepsi was laughable to say that a soft drink is going to solve a problem. this was done with such a deft touch. it's a beautiful message.
