deal and imposed economic sanctions on iran but this latest move by iran, seizing that british tanker, is possibly one of their more significant escalations since may. iran making its next move, seizing a british flagged tanker with 23 crew members on board traveling through the strait of hormuz. iranian officials initially said it violated international maritime laws but now say the british tanker collided with an iranian fishing boat. a liberian flagged tanker was also briefly seized but later released. president trump responding to the bold move friday. >> we don't have very many tankers going in but we have a lot of ships there that are warships and we'll talk to the u.k. >> reporter: the british foreign secretary says he's extremely concerned by the seizure, calling it unacceptable, even telling u.k. shipping to avoid the strait of hormuz for now. president trump calling out iran. >> this only goes to show what i'm saying about iran.

[ send her back ] >> reporter: directed at four minority congresswomen. instead, defending his supporters. >> those are incredible people. those are incredible patriots. >> reporter: and doubling down with another attack against minnesota congresswoman ilhan omar. >> but i'm unhappy when a congresswoman goes and says i'm

going to be the president's nightmare. she's lucky to be where she is. >> we are going to continue to president. his policies -- because his policies are a nightmare to us. >> reporter: this reversal comes ju one day told reporters that he felt uncomfortable with the uproar at that rally in north carolina where attendees echoed these earlier tweets from nearly a week ago after telling alexandria ocasio-cortez, rashida talib, ayanna pressley and ilhan omar to, quote, go back to the countries they came from, the president has railed against the congresswomen for days. >> they hate our country. they can leave, they can stay, but they should love our country. >> reporter: all four lawmakers are american citizens. three born in the u.s. and omar born in somalia. another voice has joined the public outrage, former first
7:10 am
lady michelle obama who had this to say. what truly makes our country great is its diversity. we must remember it's not my america or your america. it's our america. this latest firestorm might be a sign of what's to come in 2020. the president embracing a campaign based on racial divisions and identity politics. it's not unlike how he started his first campaign by calling mexicans rapists. dan? >> tara palmeri in new jersey, thank you. a lot to talk about so let's bring in abc news chief political analyst matthew dowd who joins us from texas. what's your take on this flurry of comments from president trump about the "send her back" chant? is he walking back his walk-back from thursday or do his new comments in any way nullify his apparent disavowal from thursday? >> to paraphrase john kerry, he was for it before he was against it before he was for it again. i think all of us know donald
7:11 am
trump. we've known him since he came down the escalator when he called mexicans rapists. i don't think donald trump can walk away from it not only because of his constituency but because of who donald trump is. this is who donald trump is. i think we have to be clear about that but i think donald trump tried to get credit for a walk-back but again, within 24 hours he was right back in the middle of it. >> so, tara palmeri was saying a few moments ago from new jersey where the president is spending the weekend that she thinks this is the way he's going to campaign in 2020. i'm just wondering, from the standpoint of a cold clinical political calculation, do racially charged comments help or hurt the president with the voters in the key states that he needs to win in 2020? >> well, one, i think the president just does these things as guttural. i don't think he has some grand political strategy, but i think with the president, ever since he took office, has not made one step to expand his constituency.
7:12 am
every day he goes without expanding his constituency when he started with 46 and he's dropped is a bad day for the president. i think it helps consolidate his base but it doesn't do anything to expand his constituency to get to a point where he can again take michigan, pennsylvania and wisconsin. he has a solid base and he continues to solidify that but it's a smaller and smaller base. one thing i'll point out on this day of the lunar landing, dan, is that the democrats have to not go small and divisive. they have to go big, just like the landing. for thousands of years men and women looked at the moon in awe and curiosity and then from being unified through the common good, through working diligently, we were able to send a man to the moon 50 years ago today. so democrats need to go big like that and not be small and divisive as the president seems to have a strategy of. >> more democratic presidential debates coming up very soon. matthew dowd, we really appreciate your analysis as always. thank you, sir, and have a great day. whit, over to you. >> dan, thank you.

7:31 am
will, what did they find? >> reporter: well, dan, we're not exactly sure just yet, and we spoke to family members of emanuela orlandi who were present or who have knowledge of what exactly they're unsealing and they said there are a lot of bones, more than they were expecting, so they're going to take a while to sort through all of it. it's just another turn in the mystery of the disappearance of emanuela orlandi. this morning, vatican officials unsealing human remains found underground within the city walls. forensics experts will now try to identify whose bones they are and whether a decades-ole miss stree will be solved. two containers holding bones examined on site away from any media. 15-year-old emanuela orlandi vanished in 1983. her family searching for her ever since. representatives of orlandis are present for today's unsealing.
7:32 am

7:33 am
orlandi family one step closer to closure. now, that examination is taking longer than we expected and now that we've learned from the orlandi family that there are more bones than officials thought there would be, it's going to be a while until we find out whose bones they are, how long they've been there, and the mystery will continue and we will keep you updated. >> thanks, will. so many questions as far as that story goes. >> bizarre story. >> very bizarre. time now for a check of the weather and brittany bell in for rob. it is hot out there. >> yes, very hot. i work in north carolina and i thought i was going to get away from the heat. that's not the case. i'm sorry, i think i brought the heat with me. on top of the heat, the other big story on top of that are severe storms. we had severe weather yesterday moving throughout portions of the northern plains, also stretching throughout the great lakes. that's all due to a cold front that will help us out in just a little bit, but first here's a look at some of that video. that severe weather led to damage of a barn that was
