his base with fear there. when you look at that florida race, the polarized nature of politics today, democrats turned out in big numbers, so did republicans in even bigger numbers. george. >> yeah, it sets up a real battle in november. terry, meantime, the services for senator john mccain will be in arizona today. yesterday on the senate floor his political wingman senator lindsey graham, his best friend, gave an emotional tribute. >> if you want to help the country, be more like john mccain. i believe there's a little john mccain in all of us. and the little john mccain can make this a great nation. so, my friend, you did good. you lived in the shadow of a four-star father and four-star grandfather and always worried would you disappoint. you did not. >> reporter: he didn't disappoint. talking to arizonaens here and

twitter and facebook, they're really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. it's not fair to large portions of the population. >> and google responded with a forceful denial saying, we continually work to improve google search, and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment. george. >> thank you, cecilia. the latest on the nuclear standoff with north korea. tensions on the rise again as the pentagon considers restarting military exercises in the region just days after the president canceled secretary of state mike pompeo's mission in north korea. our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz is tracking it all. we've come a long way from president trump's declaration in singapore that the nuclear threat from north korea is over. >> reporter: boy, have we, george. one thing is clear this morning, however, despite what the president said right after that historic summit, the nuclear threat from north korea remains. president trump was convinced that kim jong-un would give up his nuclear weapons after his
meeting in june, and fast. >> starting that process very quickly. very, very quickly. absolutely. >> reporter: but that deal now seems in doubt. >> are they wishing or maybe changing their mind on de-nuclearization? it's possible. but we're not going to change our mind on the sanctions. we're not going to change our mind on de-nuclearization. >> reporter: last friday trump abruptly cancelling a planned meeting with secretary of state mike pompeo in north korea, saying we are not making sufficient progress. the north korean state news responding over the weekend by accusing the u.s. of hatching a criminal plot to unleash war while conducting diplomacy with a smile on its face. secretary of defense jim mattis yesterday making no guarantees about further suspensions of military exercises on the korean peninsula. >> we took the step to suspend several of the largest exercises as a good faith measure coming
out of the singapore summit. we have no plans at this time to suspend any more exercises. >> reporter: the secretary of state did issue a statement saying that america stands ready to engage with north korea once again, but only when chairman kim is ready to deliver on his commitment to completely de-nuclearize and it is unclear george, when or if that will happen. >> which is why the president canceled that trip. >> reporter: exactly. >> martha raddatz, thanks very much. cecilia? let's turn to that breaking news. pope francis speaking publicly at the vatican for the first time since he was accused of turning a blind eye to those sexual abuse allegations against an american cardinal. abc's david wright is at the vatican and, david, once again, no mention of these claims when the pope spoke just now. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. this is the first time we have seen pope francis since he refused to answer questions on
the papal plane about that explosive accusations leveled by an arch bishop. no mention today of the archbishop's call for him to resign. instead he spoke at length about his trip to ireland and spoke in particular about sitting down with survivors of sexual abuse. he said it wounded him deeply. he said he asked for the lord's forgiveness for the sins, the scandal and the betrayal. cecilia. >> david, exactly. no mention of that or those calls for his resignation. >> reporter: that's right, not personally but close associates of the pope have told the italian news agency he has no plans to resign. they describe him as 'embittered by these allegations. there is no provision here for a special counsel, no process of impeachment. under cannon law, the pope is the supreme judge. the only higher authority is god. cecilia.
>> david wright at the vatican, thank you. now we turn to breaking news overnight, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake rocked los angeles yesterday followed by more than a dozen aftershocks. the shaking was caught on this home surveillance video. there were no reports of injuries or damage but officials say last fight's quake was the biggest to hit the region in three years. glad no one's hurt. >> thank goodness for that. >> absolutely. we move on now to a dramatic rescue caught on camera. you'll see a police officer jump into action to save a family from a burning house, a family of seven, even though he had no special gear tore training. diane macedo with the story. good morning, diane. >> reporter: george, good morning. it's one of those videos that gives you goosebumps. the officer's body cam footage shows flames and smoke shooting from this home and you can hear him call for back-up. then he realizes he has no time to wait. >> fully engulfed. there are people inside. i need help. >> reporter: watch the daring moment a texas police officer
quickly sprints right into danger. >> is everybody out? >> mother-in-law and sister-in-law. >> where are they at? >> inside. >> they're inside? >> yeah. >> i got people inside that are trapped. >> reporter: officer sam click is behind the body camera. he says he was on patrol just before 2:00 a.m. saturday when he could hear the screams and see the flames from a burning home. >> cody, open the door! >> break that glass. >> there are kids in there. >> break this glass. >> cody. the house is on fire! >> reporter: click moves room to room before discovering a father and two babies -- >> hey, come on, boys. boys wake up. >> reporter: in another room the other children sound asleep, unaware of the danger around them. >> we got kids out here! come on, man. >> i woke them up and told them we all had to get up. they all followed me. i picked up the ones that i could, and then the ones that could walk all walked. >> reporter: racing against the flames, he gets the family to safety. >> get up, get up, come on.
>> reporter: the police department says officer click had no fire training or protective gear, but this morning, he says he had no choice but to help. >> our main duty is to preserve life. it was something i felt like i had to do. >> reporter: and that family is grateful. >> this just takes it to a whole new level of respect and thankfulness for what they do. >> reporter: the officer was reunited with the family where they got to thank him in person. while he may say he was just doing his job, george, the children's father says he went above and beyond. >> and i think we can all agree. diane, thanks very much. now to the u.s. open outrage. a french player punished for flipping her shirt around on the court while the men face no penalty for changing their shirts in the heat. abc's adrienne bankert is here, and people are saying this is a serious double standard. >> yeah, i can see cecilia's face right now as i'm looking at you and looking at the whole team here. >> i had nothing to do with it. don't look at me. >> it was hot outside for regular folk, and arthur ashe stadium in this kind of heat.

>> yeah, and they really are more nutritious in minerals, too. they have more magnesium, more zinc. and it's something to think about. white grains are empty calories, right? you get a lot more nutrition with the whole grain. >> let's talk about bread. all kinds of different varieties. >> here we go. white, we have whole wheat and we have whole grain. so whole wheat and whole grain are in the same family. again, look at this. they're about 80 calories a slice so similar in calories but really the nutrition is so different. in these whole grain versions you'll get like three times the fiber, double the protein. >> again. >> again and so when you get more fiber and protein, the cool thing is you get more full so -- >> it's helping on a diet. >> absolutely. so a lot of people avoid this, but as long as you get to whole grains you're going to get more full. now, there's a big thing i want to teach everybody. when you are reading labels, it has to say 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain because if it
just says wheat -- >> what does that mean? >> wheat means there's just wheat in there. it doesn't mean whole grain. you really have to look even at the ingredient list and see. >> just because it's brown doesn't mean it's whole wheat. >> exactly. you have got to look for the word whole, whole, whole. >> got it. we all got that, right? >> thank you. >> we'll talk about pasta. >> pasta, here's what we have here. we have white pasta, we have whole wheat pasta, and then we have a bean-based pasta, and just like all the others, this white pasta will be the least nutritious. the whole grain will have three times more fiber. we've learned this before. here's the big a-ha, is this bean-based pasta not only has more fiber but it has two times the protein. so it is protein packed, right? that's great news, great news.
