brother. i promise you. i appreciate you. >> see why he broke down while talking about his little brother. talking about his little brother. couldn't have happened to a nicer guy there. we'll get to that a little later on as we say good morning to you on this tuesday. we'll start with that overnight warning from the white house aimed at syria. >> a brief but ominous statement claims that there's potential evidence that syria is preparing for another chemical weapons attack. you might remember an attack on a rebel held area in april killed dozens of people. the u.s. followed that by firing 59 missiles at a syrian air base. the white house is now warning that another chemical attack will result in bashar assad and his military paying a heavy price. several military officials were caught off guard by the white house announcement according to "the new york times." some questioning the timing of all of this. the white house's motivation for releasing the statement is unclear, but the public warning might have been a way to deter
the bashar al assad regime from another strike. we'll have more on this on "good morning america." and now to the scramble to save the gop health care bill. six republican senators are now refusing to support it. the latest susan collins of maine to announce her position after learning 22 million americans could be left uninsured. some conservatives are criticizing the bill as too generous while moderates say it doesn't go far enough. >> it's a big challenge for the gop leadership now falling short of the 50 votes they need. abc's emily rau has the latest from washington. emily, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, diane and kendis. potentially smaller premiums and a shrinking deficit. the republicans really are making their case for the bill, but the big question, will it be enough? >> i will stop this bill. [ chanting "yeah" ] >> reporter: as democrats gathered with protesters -- >> i'll tell you right now. this evil bill is not about going together. it's about leaving people behind.
>> reporter: republicans continued last-minute negotiations. >> this is the art of the possible and the art of getting 50 votes. >> reporter: the nonpartisan congressional budget office revealing the senate health care bill would leave 22 million more americans uninsured over the next decade. 15 million more next year alone. >> unfortunately, the forgotten men and women remain ignored in both the house and senate bill and that's where i'm trying to press. >> reporter: republican ron johnson citing the working class americans president trump has called forgotten. >> save medicare, medicaid and social security without cuts. >> reporter: candidate trump pushing to save medicaid but the bill he now supports would slash medicaid spending by $800 billion. >> i'm also very concerned about the medicaid cuts, what it means to our most vulnerable citizens. >> reporter: those concerns from senator susan collins now on the growing list of republicans who say they'll vote no on this bill.
that puts a total of six in the no column when this bill can only afford two no votes to pass. kendis and diane. >> all right. which is why the vice president is trying to turn some of those votes. emily thank you. president trump is calling the supreme court decision to partially reinstate his controversial travel ban a clear victory for our national security. that travel ban was a signature trump campaign promise and now the government will begin implementing it on thursday morning. abc's terry moran has more. >> reporter: the supreme court ruling will allow the president's travel ban to go into effect but only partially. is this a clear victory for president trump? >> i would say it's not a clear victory for either side and this strikes me as a compromised solution that hands both sides something of what they wanted but doesn't give anybody a clean victory. >> reporter: under the court's ruling some people will be banned. some not. the president's order blocked travel to the u.s. for 90 days by people from six predominantly muslim countries, iran,
syria, libya, yemen, somalia and sudan but the court declared that the government cannot ban people if they have a bona fide relationship a person or entity in the united states. that includes the court said family members of u.s. residents, students admitted to american university, workers accepting a job offer in the u.s., speakers invited to address an american audience and more. in the end, analysts say those most impacted will be refugees with no connection to the u.s. and that may turn out to be a relatively small number of people. terry moran, abc news, washington. a highly anticipated decision by one supreme court just ended up not happening at all. some court observers expected 80-year-old justice anthony kennedy to announce his retirement but he didn't and despite speculation he hasn't said publicly anything to suggest that he would be leaving the court any time soon. we have some new details now what authorities believe caused the nation's largest wildfire. officials now say the so-called brian head fire started with someone using a torch to burn
weeds. that fire in utah has scorched more than 70 square miles in 10 days and burned at least 13 homes. investigators say they know who was using that torch but haven't revealed the person's identity or what charges they may face. the fire is only about 10% contained this morning. and officials say a single car accident is what sparked a fast-moving wildfire about 80 miles east of los angeles. the flames have burned across two square miles in just a matter of hours. that fire is still considered out of control and closer to l.a. residents and some homes used water from their swimming pools to keep flames at a safe distance. air drops were also brought in to try to get that fire under control. now, let's take a look at today's forecast. good morning, diane, kendis. extreme heat eases, however, we're still very parched and dry in the desert southwest. and you add on to that onshore flow and weak cooling coming from the north and just becoming breezy in general, and it
makes a parched situation more dry so that they'll have more problems with the fire so we're looking for an elevated fire danger. now, another part of the country, there's a danger of thunderstorms erupting throughout the dakotas with severe afternoon, evening thunderstorms starting in the afternoon leaning into the evening hours with damaging winds, flash flooding and possible tornadoes. kendis, diane. still ahead, the summer's black friday. we now know what amazon is holding on its annual prime day. another airline facing criticism. a mom says her infant's life was in danger after overheating during a tarmac delay. what the airline is now saying this morning. plus, a new battle of the sexes. serena williams responds to john mcenroe's comments after he said she can't compete with male players. players.

least one arrest in the case. the family of philando castile has agreed to a $3 million settlement in his death. the agreement with the minneapolis suburb of st. anthony came ten days after the police officer who fired those fatal shots was acquitted. castile was killed during a traffic stop after he let the officer know he was armed. his girlfriend posted the moments after the shooting on facebook live sparking outrage across the country. he had a license to carry that weapon. and we're learning some good news. a u.s. program to fight malaria in africa has been shown to save the lives of nearly 2 million children. a new study shows the pez's malaria initiative which was started by former president george w. bush has saved 1.7 million young lives since 2006 reducing deaths by 16%. a new study shows reports of beauty and personal care products causing injury more than doubled last year. that report in the "journal of american medical association" begins much of the increase or

eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away 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.
