7:03 am
worth noting that in many ways president trump comes into this summit as the odd man out. differing with allies on key issues such as climate change, pulling the u.s. out of the paris climate agreement and then that tension with germany on its defense spending in nato. and while there have been efforts to isolate russia over its aggression in crimea back in 2014, president trump has been vocal about wanting to bring russia back to this summit but there is no apparent support for that among the other leaders who are here for this summit. something else we'll watch, president trump will have his first face-to-face meeting with boris johnson since he became britain's new prime minister and so certainly over the next several days, there will be a lot to discuss here as these world leaders hope to make progress on a myriad of issues. eva. >> all right, marcus moore, thank you. before president trump left for the g7 summit, he ratcheted up his trade war with china increasing tariffs and ordering american companies to consider
7:04 am
alternatives to doing business with the country. abc's rachel scott is at the white house with the latest on the escalation and how markets are reacting. rachel, good morning. >> reporter: eva, good morning to you. the u.s. and china going tit for tat back and forth here, each leader trying to come out on top but all of this trickles down to the consumer and the reality is consumers now will not only see higher tariffs, they're going to see more starting in just about a week. blow by blow the u.s. and china are becoming more entrenched in an ongoing trade war. >> our economy is doing great. we're having a little spat with china and we'll win it. >> reporter: before departing for france president trump still insisting the u.s. has the upper hand despite growing concern about a looming recession in part due to the conflict. >> no, i think our tariffs are very good for us. we're taking in tens of billions of dollars. china is paying for it. >> reporter: wall street though on edge.
7:05 am
the dow plunged more than 600 points friday. new retaliatory tariffs by china sent the president on a tweet storm earlier in the day announcing, i hereby order u.s. businesses to cut ties with china and move back to the u.s. a move he claims he has the power to do if he declares a national emergency. >> well, in 1977, we had an act passed, a national emergency act. i have the absolute right to do that. >> reporter: the president fired his next shot, announcing he's raising the rate of tariffs on about $550 billion worth of chinese goods. $250 billion of goods from china will now see a 30% tariff starting october 1st. and the remaining $300 billion in goods will be hit by a 15% tariff, some of that starting september 1st. for consumers here at home that means a higher price tag on things like electronics and clothes. meanwhile, farmers who sell pork and other products to china are caught in the cross fire. >> pig farmers are currently
7:06 am
losing $25 to $30 per pig and the future of the next six months does not look very optimistic. >> rachel, this is a critical time for the president. as you mentioned, the economy is one of his signature issues and the stakes are high. that's ahead of the 2020 election. but yesterday we saw him push the blame of any uncertainty to the fed. >> reporter: that's right, eva. the president taking jabs at jerome powell, the man he hand picked for fed chair. the president now saying if powell wanted to step down and resign, he wouldn't stop him. the strategy from the white house has been to push any blame or any focus, any sign of weakness in the economy over to the fed for not lowering interest rates, but the fed dropped those rates last month for the first time in a decade and the president now saying they need to come down even lower, eva. >> rachel scott for us at the white house, thank you. this is getting a lot of talk. the health scare for ruth bader ginsburg. the supreme court justice revealed her second battle with cancer in a year. abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri is at the supreme court this morning. tara, good morning to you.
7:07 am
>> reporter: good morning, terrell. it's her fourth cancer treatment in the past ten years and all eyes are on her health because she holds a critical liberal seat on the court, one that senate majority leader mitchell mcconnell said he would quickly fill if vacant giving conservatives control over the court for decades. supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg is recovering at home this morning after revealing she completed a three-week outpatient radiation treatment for pancreatic cancer. according to a statement issued by the court, justice ginsburg was diagnosed late last month and as part of her treatment doctors inserted a stent in ginsburg's bile duct. the statement later describing the tumor as localized saying it was treated definitively and there was no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. justice ginsburg, who is now 86 has been treated for various forms of cancer before. last december she underwent surgery for lung cancer. in 2009 a previous bout with pancreatic cancer required
7:08 am
surgery. and in 1999 she was treated for colon cancer. ginsburg, who is a strong liberal voice on the court, has served for over a quarter of a century. the clinton administration appointed her in 1993 making her the second woman to ever serve. in her most recent interview last month, she said she plans to serve as long as she can. >> i am very much alive. >> reporter: ginsburg who is known for her dissents has had her health under watch by both conservatives and liberals. as president trump has already appointed two justices during his first term, leaving the court in favor of conservatives by 5-4. overnight, president trump wishing her well. >> i'm hoping she's going to be fine. she's pulled through a lot. she's strong. very tough. >> reporter: and here's a sign of how she's doing. on thursday the supreme court was seeing "mew lynn rouge" on brood. the new term for the supreme court starts in october, dan. >> i'm very much alive, she
7:09 am
says. proof from last night. thank you very much. really appreciate it. let's bring in abc news chief medical correspondent dr. jennifer ashton to find out more about pancreatic cancer. when we hear the words pancreatic cancer, it sounds particularly aggressive. what do we need to know? >> to be clear, dan, first of all, any type of cancer potentially has the ability to e thing thatak pancreac cancer difficult is where it's located in the body, the anatomy of the pancreas, it sits up high in the abdominal cavity in a place that the tumors can actually grow quite large before they start producing symptoms and before they can be felt. the function of the pancreas, critically important for digestion, regulate sugar levels and unfortunately there is not yet a screening test for pancreatic cancer. >> so who is at risk here and what's the follow-up? >> when you look at the risk factors, and i want to be clear with this, some are under our control. some are not. if you take a look at this list, things like obesity, smoking, heavy alcohol use, ashkenazi jewish descent and certain gene mutations including the brca mutation that we usually think of with breast and
7:10 am
ovarian cancer also increases the risk of pancreatic cancer. follow-up for this after treatment, serial blood tests to look at tumor markings and c.a.t. scans and i want to be clear, mind, body, spirit very important. >> always a great point to make, or ouwe app annortkoiso inhenews this mo a u. officiacoirms n korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea of japan. that is its seventh weapons launch in a month. president trump downplayed the latest launch in comments right before he left for france. new developments this morning involving the crisis in the amazon. the so-called lungs of the world on fire. the president of brazil, a man sometimes known as the trump of the tropics, now reversing course. at first he said his critics might have set the fires to embarrass him, but this morning he is sending in the army. abc's matt gutman is there in sao paulo with the latest. matt, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning, dan. this is a dramatic reversal from brazil's president.
7:11 am
not only is he authorizing the military to fight the fires, but also to prevent new ones by stopping farmers from clearing brush. but already critics are arguing that this is a mostly symbolic move because of the relatively small size of brazil's military. and this comes amid an international outcry that he's not taken these fires seriously enough. the scale of the fires is almost incomprehensible. in the united states, it would cover an area from detroit to los angeles. about 85% more forest has burned this year than last year. the government says a new fire is started -- get this -- every minute. the area of smoke is so large it's visible from space. now, the amazon produces about 20% of the world's oxygen, helps regulate its temperature but what is so troubling is that we're just at the start of the dry season here which lasts through november and forecasters are saying these fires are only going to intensify. dan.
7:12 am
>> as you said, matt, it's a problem for the entire world. matt gutman on the ground of brazil, thank you very much. in the meantime, we go to hong kong, police and pro-democracy protesters are facing off this morning. hundreds of riot officers charged at crowds of thousands. they barricaded a main highway and a police station. the protesters worry that their freedoms will erode as the communist ruled central government flexes its power in hong kong. now to the breaking news overnight, a verdict in a stand your ground case in florida. abc's zachary kiesch reports on why the jury's decision could be especially significant. >> we, the jury, find as follows as to the defendant in this case, the defendant is guilty of manslaughter as charged. >> reporter: michael drejka stood without emotion as a jury convicted him of killing markeis mcglockton in a dispute over a parking space at a convenience store. the week long trial in clearwater, florida, ended friday night after jurors spent just six hours deliberating. >> my family can rest now.
7:13 am
now we can start putting the pieces back together and move on. >> reporter: watch as mcglockton who was black shoves drejka who was white to the ground. seconds later drejka opens fire as mcglockton backs away. mcglockton then runs inside the store where he collapses and dies in front of his son. drejka claiming self-defense and citing florida's controversial stand your ground law. an alternative juror says the surveillance video sealed his fate. >> i think there was a pause between the point where he realized he had hit the ground and pulled his weapon, between that and when he fired, and i think that gave him a chance to not kill him. >> reporter: in a statement mcglockton's mother saying this conviction doesn't bring our son back but it does give us some sense of justice because far too often the criminal justice system fails us by allowing people who take the lives of unarmed black people to walk free as though their lives meant nothing. you can see in that video
7:14 am
mcglockton moving away when he's shot. now, after the shooting happened, the local sheriff said it was justified under florida's stand your ground laws. later the state's attorney brought manslaughter charges. drejka face up to 30 years in prison. >> all over a parking spot. zachary kiesch, thank you. in new york the mother of a 3-year-old boy is facing charges including reckless endangerment after police say she left him inside a parked car while she stopped. it was an 80-degree day and a window was slightly open but a passing family heard the boy crying and called 911. the boy was taken to the hospital for evaluation. it happened outside the same store where another child was rescued from a hot car two weeks before. more and more concerns about e-cigarettes and vaping this morning. a patient died from a severe respiratory illness and it could be the country's first vaping-related death. this morning, health officials sending an urgent warning about the dangers of vaping. an illinois resident dying of a
7:15 am
respiratory illness, the state's department of public health saying that person had recently vaped. >> when there's inflammation in the lung sacs of the alveoli, they don't oxygenate. when we don't get oxygen, we can't live. >> reporter: the cdc currently investigating 193 severe pulmonary illnesses in people who use e-cigarettes. the cases spread out over 22 states. health officials have not identified a particular device or liquid as being associated with those cases. among those hospitalized, 17-year-old tryston zohfeld rushed to a texas hospital with a blockage in his lungs. his doctors say because of vaping. >> i woke up just throwing up everywhere and my heart was just pounding out of my chest going 100 miles an hour. >> reporter: in late july he was in a medically induced coma. his parents then learning tryston had been vaping without their knowledge since the eighth grade. >> he is a very sick otherwise
7:16 am
healthy-looking child, and we don't see previously healthy 17-year-olds that sick that quickly. >> that video hard to watch. the cdc has confirmed all cases were using e-cigarettes or vaping in the months leading up to developing pulmonary complications, however, details regarding how many people were using thc, cbd, nicotine or other products in these cases has yet to be confirmed. but a reminder that we still don't know a lot about vaping. this is a relatively new thing. >> yeah, something that a lot of people are keeping an eye on. >> yep. >> let's chat weather. sam is here. welcome. >> i should welcome you. >> hey, it's good to meet and see you. >> thank you. it's nice to be here. hi, everybody. >> hello. >> now that you got a lot to talk about and are watching. >> this has been a tough summer for storms really around the country. we never got into a quiet summer pattern and don't have one today. let's get to the board. we got two pieces of video to share with you.
