4:03 am
others say they called police after learning about his radical views and he even complained his mosque was not devout enough. prime minister theresa may vowing tougher anti-terrorism measures. >> we cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. things need to change. >> reporter: amid all this carnage stories of heroism. 19-year-old new yorker mark kindschuh rushing to help a man caught in the cross fire as police try to take down the suspect. >> i took off my belt and myself and the other man put the belt around sort of his head to apply pressure and stop the bleeding. >> reporter: and survivors recalling moments of bravery. >> i look over and there's this guy who is throwing a table at somebody. a heroic guy that saw what was happened and just bombarded these terrible cowardly people. >> the eyewitness accounts there from london. president trump is speaking out about the terror attack for the
4:04 am
first time. >> he is now denouncing the attack and pledging support to the united kingdom following a series of controversial tweets. abc's lana zak is live in washington for us with the details. lana, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, kendis and diane. this was the president's debut on the washington social circuit. he was hosting an event for the first time not at the white house or a trump property but instead he and the first lady holding a fund-raiser at the iconic ford theater. he took to the podium in a tux for brief remarks describing what happened in london as a horrific terror attack. he also added the bloodshed must end. the bloodshed will end. >> we renew our resolve stronger than ever before to protect the united states and its allies from a vile enemy that has waged war on innocent life. as president, i will do what is necessary to prevent this threat from spreading to our shores and work every single day -- >> reporter: and the president also said that the threat of
4:05 am
terrorism has gone on for too long. he said that he had spoken with british prime minister theresa may and offered the united states' assistance with their ongoing investigation. kendis, diane. >> all right. lana zak for us live from washington. and, lana, the president is also facing some backlash on social media for his initial reaction to that london attack. >> yeah, he took to twitter to use the attack as justification for enforcement of his stalled travel ban. and he slammed comments by london's mayor sadiq khan as khan was trying to reassure residents. londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. no reason to be alarmed. >> reporter: well, the president tweeted at least 7 dead and 48 wounded in the terror attack and mayor of london says there is no reason to be alarmed. well, khan's office fired back saying the mayor has more important things to do than to respond to donald trump's ill-informed tweet. those recent attacks in britain and elsewhere have police now sharing their latest advice about what to do if you
4:06 am
find yourself in harm's way. >> that advice comes down to three key words, run, hide and fight. we spoke about it earlier with abc contributor and former fbi counterterrorism official steve gomez. >> if you can't run and you can't hide, you need to be prepared to fight and not be prepared to call somebody. you have to be looking for a chair, a trash can, something that they were talking about in this situation. and be prepared to now take out the terrorist with whatever means necessary. but, you know, you could worry about calling somebody later but you got to fight first if you can't run and hide. >> so the run, hide, fight strategy has been credited with saving lives in certain circumstances, but there are analysts who remind us that it's not a universal solution that will work all the time. and police departments across the u.s. are also on alert. there was some extra security last night at the nba finals in oakland, and the nypd stepped up patrols in times square as well. the fbi says there are homegrown terror investigations in all 50

4:19 am
and now it's going to move to cleveland. now, what was one big highlight in this game, i guess, a big story line coming into the game is that the warriors got a very important player back and by player i mean coach. steve kerr, who has been out since game two of the first round of the playoff, returned as coach. his team is now 14-0 in the playoffs, something that's never happened in the playoffs before so they seem to be unstoppable. but, again, we saw this exact same thing last year, 2-0 for the warriors going back to cleveland. but then, of course, as we know what happened last year, the cavs ended up winning it all so we shall see. guys, we never know what to make of these finals, don't think anything. two blow-outs, 2-0 means nothing because we've seen this story play out before. we will see you guys in cleveland for game three on wednesday. kendis, diane, see you real soon. >> all right, appreciate it, t.j. it'll be right here on abc. of course, we'll have coverage thursday morning. well, up next in "the pulse," a man mowing his lawn,

4:21 am
if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. what's the best way to get v8 or a fancy juice store?s? ready, go! hi, juice universe? one large rutabaga, with eggplant... done! that's not fair. glad i had a v8. the original way to fuel your day. yet up 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day 50+ a complete multi-vitamin with 100% daily value of more than 15 key nutrients. one a day 50+.
