this morning as well here. i love all of you. >> we do act like children. we do begin this sunday morning, though, with a breaking story overnight. a fresh provocation from north korea. >> for the seventh time since the inauguration of donald j. trump, the north koreans have test-launched a ballistic missile. this one flew for half an hour and reached an unusually high altitude, suggesting it could be a new kind of missile. >> the timing is key here. the test launch coming just days after a new government was sworn in in south korea, expressing willingness to enter into a dialogue with the north and kim jong-un. that may now be in jeopardy. troops from the u.s., japan, france and the u.k. conduct joint drills in the pacific nearby. >> president trump has spent much of the week doubling down on the firing of james comey. a series of candidates showing up at the department of justice
on saturday for job interviews. we have a live image of the doj as we await the arrival of more candidates in coming hours. >> we're covering all angles. george is standing by with analysis but we start with analysis from gloria rivera in washington this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula. good morning, dan. this morning, the white house calling north korea a flagrant menace. u.s. analysts are assessing what type of missile this was with north korea threatening to produce nuclear-tipped weapons capable of making it to the u.s. all eyes are on this launch. this morning, tensions heating up with north korea after it launched another ballistic missile. u.s. officials saying the missile, fired off saturday, stayed airborne for 30 minutes, traveling over 400 miles before landing in the sea of japan. south of russia, home to the russian pacific fleet. president trump was immediately briefed. the white house releasing a statement saying, with the missile impacting so close to russian soil, in fact, closer to russia than japan, the president cannot imagine that russia is pleased. it also called for tougher sanctions.
north korea recently showing off its purported arsenal. u.s. pacific command on alert, saying this launch is not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile. japanese officials believe the flight pattern could be an indicator of a new type of missile. the launch coming days after the election of new south korean president moon jae-in. he has called for a closer relationship with north korea. this is the seventh missile test since president trump took office. the last missile test weeks ago marking trump's 100th day in office. the president saying this to abc news about the recent provocations. >> you'll soon find out, won't you? >> does that mean military action? >> you're going to soon find out. >> reporter: the russian defense ministry said the launch posed no danger to russia. it does raise questions on just how effective u.s. efforts to thwart north korea's missile program have been. dan? paula? >> gloria, thank you. >> let's bring in retired marine
corps colonel and abc news steve ganyard. it doesn't look like this missile could have hit the u.s. the. what are the national security issues for the united states? >> dan, the security issues are that they have successfully launched a missile after several failures. so we see failure, failure, failure, but now we have a success. if you learn something about launching a missile that's maybe a shorter range, it could be applied to a longer range missile that could potentially hit the united states. >> steve, good morning to you. we know that this particular missile traveled for 30 minutes over 400 miles. then landed about 300 miles off the border of russia. the white house seems to be trying to bring russia into this. is this likely to work? >> it's always useful to bring as many countries to bear as you can on a problem like north korea. but i think in this case, the russians have always been fairly conciliatory to the north koreans. i don't think it will have much effect. i think what will be more interesting to the watch is how south korea reacts to this. we have the new president with a very conciliatory approach to
north korea which is at direct odds with a firmer trump administration policy. >> a fascinating dynamic there. let me ask you though as we conclude here, are the north koreans picking up the pace on missile testing? are we seeing more from them than we usually do? and what does the pattern and the timing tell you? >> it seems to be about on pace as it was last year, dan. what it says is they have a deliberate missile program. they're going to test and test and test until they get it right. and the recent pressure by the u.s. and china hasn't had much effect. >> steve ganyard, thank you for joining us on this sunday morning. always great to have you. meantime, president trump is facing urgent issues both foreign and domestic. he hit the road on saturday, delivering a commencement address while continuing to defend his firing of the fbi director. >> meanwhile, back in washington, the attorney general interviewing the candidates for the new fbi director. abc's david wright is at the white house covering it all. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan and paula. president trump is trying to get past what's been called a credibility crisis brought on by
the shifting stories over his firing of the fbi director. an fbi director who was investigating, among other things, trump's administration. speaking on fox news last night, the president came out blazing. >> how was your week? >> well, i think it was great. >> reporter: the president is now completely ignoring the reasons he initially gave for firing fbi director comey last week. >> was this the wrong time to fire jim comey? >> well, there's no right time. >> reporter: telling judge jeannine on fox news, he doesn't know what the fuss was about. >> i guess i was surprised because all of the democrats hated jim comey. they didn't like him. they wanted him fired, or whatever. and all of a sudden, they come out with glowing reports. >> reporter: trump sought to dismiss the outrage over the firing as a tempest in the washington teapot. >> i have a very strong base of incredible people. >> this is something that should have been a unifying thing for the country. instead, politics is still being played. the american people don't have
confidence in comey. >> reporter: already trump is focused on choosing comey's successor, as he told reporters on air force one. >> i think the process is going to go quickly because almost all of them are very well known. they've been vetted over their lifetime. you will not fail. >> reporter: the president's advice to the graduates at liberty university, full of defiance. >> be totally unafraid to challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures. does that sound familiar? >> reporter: but even in this crowd. some skeptics. this past week, he fired the fbi director. what do you think of that move? >> i think it was -- um -- very irrational. >> reporter: do you trust president trump? >> not completely. not completely. >> reporter: expand on that thought. >> i don't trust any government official completely, to be honest with you. >> we all just want the truth. i'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and, you know, he has to answer to god at
the end of the day. >> reporter: as for the search for the fbi director, the interviews have already begun. the interviews being conducted by the attorney general and the deputy attorney general. 11 names on the short list. and here are some of the folks we saw yesterday, mike rogers, a former congressman. he's also a former fbi agent. he's been endorsed by the fbi agents association. alice fisher, fran townsend. they would be the first women to lead the agency. senator john cornyn. he's the former attorney general of texas. he serves currently as the majority whip. that's the number two position in the senate. dan and paula? >> filling the position is of the utmost urgency. thank you, david. we want to bring in our chief anchor, george stephanopoulos. he'll host "this week" later on. let's get to the fbi director. we just saw a list of names from david wright. the firing of comey seemed to galvanize both parties that the timing was not good. can he make a pick that quiets the storm? >> oh, no. it's necessary to make a great pick. but it's not even close to sufficient.
the confirmation hearings for this new fbi director are going to be brutal. they're going to be asking questions about how can you assure us that you'll be ready to run an independent investigation into the trump campaign and russia? would you take a loyalty oath? the president appears to have asked james comey to make it, though the president denies it. this is just the beginning. we haven't heard james comey's side of the story in public. a solid pick for fbi director is absolutely necessary for president trump. it's not going to put this controversy away. >> lots of questions about when or whether we'll hear from james comey. while the firing of comey has been controversial in many circles, if you look at the latest polling at least from gallup, it seems to suggest that most trump supporters are standing by their man on this one. they argue, what you hear from the right is, this is all about hyperpartisanship and hysteria from the left. do they have a case here? >> let's separate the questions. the president has a right to fire an fbi director. what president trump did is
something that has never happened before in american history. he fired an fbi director who was conducting an investigation into the president's campaign and any possible ties to russia. and the president himself said that that was on his mind when he considered firing james comey. that is brand new. that has never happened before. that is beyond politics in many respects. i think the poll shows that we still have a very partisan country right there. overall, it shows most americans disapprove of the firing of james comey. i think the real question with the polls right now, even if the president maintains the core of support that allows him to survive, to remain in office, does he have enough support to get anything done? that's the real question for the white house right now. >> speaking of getting anything done, we know russia is important to voters but if you go to these town halls across the country, they're talking about taxes and health care. the likelihood of anything getting done in today's climate -- >> very little. the president is not going to get any democratic cooperation
on those issues right now, both on substantive grounds and they're prepared to hold up action in the senate until an independent counsel is appointed to look into the trump campaign and russia. will they succeed? probably not. but i think that is something they will continue to push. remember here, as i think david wright pointed out in his piece, democrats have not been fans of james comey. you even had chuck schumer, the democratic leader, saying he lost confidence in him. but it is the timing and the way that this was done that is raising questions. >> our chief anchor, george stephanopoulos. thank you very much. i want to remind everyone george has a big show this morning. he'll go one on one with mark warner, the senate intelligence committee vice chair. u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley. and the former director of national intelligence, james clapper. coming up on "this week." that's later this morning right here on abc. >> we want to move on to the other developing story this morning. the global cyberattack where hackers demanded money and exploited a dangerous security hole that has frozen computers
in over 100,000 companies in 150 countries. >> we're learning about the computer security programmers who were able to stop the attack but could there be a second wave coming? here's brian ross. >> reporter: u.s. officials this morning are praising the quick work of this computer security programmer in indiana. darien huss, and a counterpart in great britain, who analyzed the hacker's messages, demanding ransom, and stumbled on to a kill switch that shut down the massive attack in its tracks. >> so i was panicking looking through the code and i realized that actually we had stopped it. >> once the kill switch was activated, the malware would simply do nothing. >> reporter: the tally of victims includes fedex in the united states, railroads in germany and russia, factories and phone companies across europe, and hospitals in great britain where surgeries were cancelled, ambulances turned away. this morning, law enforcement and intelligence authorities
around the world led by britain's new computer security squad, where we were recently given rare access, are working to track down whoever was responsible. with russian organized crime considered a prime suspect. >> it's people trying to steal money. the digital world gives people an opportunity to do that at a scale hitherto unknown. allows bad people to think up new ways of doing bad things. >> reporter: ironically, cybersecurity experts believe the attack was carried out with the help of a program first developed by u.s. intelligence to compromise the commuters of terrorists and foreign adversaries. >> they lost it. somebody stole the information. published it on the internet. now it's being used against victims in the united states and elsewhere. >> reporter: as of this morning, u.s. officials believe american companies have dodged a bullet. because most had upgraded their computers to close those vulnerabilities. and because of the quick activation of the kill switch. even so, u.s. officials tell abc
news, they believe the hackers will try a second wave of attacks without a kill switch. and that could come anytime soon. dan and paula? >> not something to look forward to. brian ross, thank you very much. a lot of other news this morning. as always, we kick it over to dr. ron claiborne. what's happening? >> dan, good morning to you, paula, adrienne, robert, good morning, everyone. in france, emmanuel macron is being sworn in as the country's new president. the ceremony taking place at the elysees palace in paris. the former investment banker is succeeding francois holland. macron won the resounding victory over marine le pen a week ago. pope francis flying back to rome. from a one-day trip to portugal. he talked about his upcoming meeting with president trump. the pope said he doesn't want to quote prejudge the president before meeting him. pope francis adding he intends to speak his mind and hopes president trump will do the same. trump is scheduled to meet the pope may 24th when he visits the vatican. in new york, police were called on to a jetblue flight at jfk airport because of an argument between passengers and
crew members over a birthday cake. a new jersey family on the way to las vegas said they were ordered off the flight after a flight attendant asked them to move a cake that they brought on board. the family saying they complied. jetblue says they did not, they became agitated, cursed and yelled at the crew. the family was removed. i'm sure that's the end of that story. in california, more than 900 students and teachers affected by a highly contagious virus. that's sweeping through dozens of schools in yolo county, near sacramento. the norovirus, which causes flu-like symptoms, has been spreading through the school district there. health officials are advising parents to keep children home from school for at least two days after they show symptoms. a fiery three-car race in kansas city, kansas. at a nascar race. look at that. number 43 going airborne from the impact. the driver air-lifted to the hospital. he's said to be in stable condition this morning. that race was red flagged,
stopped for nearly half-an-hour while the crashed vehicles were removed. the driver air-lifted away. and rain delays at baseball games are not that unusual. how about a squirrel delay? look at this. last night in cleveland, a squirrel making its way on to the ballpark and running around the bases there. all over the field. jumping into the stands to hang out with some of the fans. after a five-minute delay, the twins of minnesota beat the hometown indians, 4-1. blame it on the squirrel. otherwise they would have won. >> i have a few cats that could have solved that problem quickly. >> chased the squirrel right off? >> that's right. >> a note to all of the stadiums out there, have a cat on hand. have a steve. >> i have a cat named steve. i do. got it from the aspca. everybody should adopt pets. anyway, rob marciano, who also owns a cat by the way. >> yes, and my cat would not have been so swift to catch that squirm. it would be great episode of "wild kingdom."
