s he's's president trump's worst nightmare. >> firefighters are working to put out fires in the rocky mountains of colorado. >> you hear this and you realize why it's no match for a wildfire. >> they took a violent attack on the country's congress. >> they're saying this was a mistake that led to the airline accidentally giving away the little boy's seat to a passenger. >> an earthquake rocked montana. the magnitude 5.8 quake was followed by aftershocks. >> i'm not joking you. we just had an earthquake. >> even they can get tired of little kids nipping at your heels, especially when they're a litter of nine nipping bulldog puppies. here's the solution. i can jump higher and you can't get up here. i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell. good to have you here.
8:02 am
president trump is finishing a short but significant trip to poland. he's calling for the world to confront north korea's threat. >> then the president spoke to the polish people praising how they kept their culture and warning about the threat to the western society. >> both sides of the atlantic, our citizens are confronted by another danger, one firmly within our control. this danger is visible to some but for millions of the poles. the steady creep of government bureaucracy that andres the vitality and wealth of the people. the west became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies. >> the president just wrapped up his speech and is now heading to hamburg, germany, to meet with the g-20 summit. major garrett is in warsaw with
8:03 am
what the president had to say. good morning. >> good morning. the president pratzed warsaw and its persistent efforts throughout the cold war to undermine soviet dominance here and throughout europe. in a speech mr. trump also hailed poland as one of the few nato nations that annually meet its defense spending obligations and, by the way, he praised it for buying millions of u.s. made weapons. he also criticized russian's invasion of ukraine and backing regimes in syria and iran. earlier mr. trump med with the polish president whose government has been criticized over press freedom and judicial independence. he's considering very severe things. that is, technology that could reach the u.s. with a nuclear weapon.
8:04 am
ahead of tomorrow's first meeting with russian president vladimir putin, mr. trump said russia and other countries meddled in the 2016 election. in the end the president said, quote, nobody really knows the source of the cyber intrusions, even though at the highest levels of the intelligence community, they have concluded moscow was to blame. in a nation where press freedoms are in flux, the president equally criticized the u.s. media and former president obama. they typically i uphold american values such as press freedom and the presidency mr. trump did not. jeff? >> major garrett. thanks. the president meets with leaders in south korea tonight. they'll discuss the first test of the intercontinental ballistic missile. mr. trump takes up that issue with chinese president xi jinping. the u.s. ambassador for the u.n.
8:05 am
nicky haley strongly criticized them yesterday. >> if you're happy with north korea's actions, veto it. if you want to be a friend of north korea, veto it. to sit there and oppose sanctions or to sit there and go in defiance of a new resolution means you're holding the hands of kim jong-un. >> haley said they're ready to use a full range including military force. ian is here this morning. good morning. he warned about severe actions against north korea but then he quickly added that doesn't mean we're going to do them. doesn't that just encapsulate that there really are no good options when it comes to north korea? >> that's why we basically have presidents that kick it to their children, right? we can put more pressure on china. even though everyone going to
8:06 am
focus on the trump/putin meeting, it's going to be considerably more tense. it's going to be the first time the presidents have met face-to-face since a seer of actions that have taken place. also most recently, trump saying repeatedly china is not doing repeatedly what it's supposed to. >> what's the specific ask? >> the specific ask is if you don't cut off significantly the funding and support that they're receiving that the u.s. is going to put sanctions against them. doing that business eventually there's going to be linkage as well. two of the most important economies in the world. they thought that loin was on a relatively calm footing. now it looks like it really isn't. that's the biggest takeaway. >> especially after the mar-a-lago meeting where everything seems to be on good terms. what happened, ian, and can you get that back on track?
8:07 am
>> remember the first time president trump met at the oval auvgs it was, actually everything is face-to-face, it's okay, he's calling me on the phone, but then he's tapping me on the phones, so i think trump was in deal-making mode and let's see if we can get something done. in relatively short order he's pivoted away from that. this is not going to be an easy meeting at all. that's the body language you want to watch. 80s going to be warm and festive and we're all going to go crazy about it. >> the trump putin meeting has gone from that to a full catapult. who's going to be involved in that? >> this f that's the case, president trump is having a lot of summits. i do think we want to have a lot of people in that meeting. it's important that we not have a bilateral agreement because then who knows what the hell
8:08 am
they're talking about. i think one of the reasons fiona hill going to be pulled into that meeting -- >> she's going to be there. >> it looks that way. i would think mcmaster would want her there. she's very credible. and they'll say, you know what? if she's saying this meeting was on the up and up, it's on the up and up. that would inokay plate president trump. >> they say they're worried about it. what's your definition of success for that meeting for president trump? >> well, for trump's and trump's base it's to ignore the media, the investigation. >> the election meddling. >> absolutely. i think trump was completely right in saying in poland today that obama was president when the hacks occurred, he could have taken action, he didn't, and he said, hey, if trump looked like he was going to win,
8:09 am
obama would have done more. i think that's actually an accurate analysis. >> if he had taken action at the time, don't you think trump would have said, see, they're meddling? >> of course. trump getting criticism now. obama didn't get much then and we're kind of forgetting all that. i do think it would be shocking to me if trump were to bring up the hacks at this meeting. >> you don't think it's wise. >> of course. ads a political animal, anything that dele jij mights his win like the russian hacks hurts him. now h if he was going to put his country before himself politically, you'd want him to do that, but how many times do you think the president -- >> you say the g-20 summit is more important than any you've ever seen. >> why? >> first it's not a g-20. it's a g-0. it's the absence of leadership
8:10 am
and that's the first time it's happened. secondly, everyone is going to be talking about the elephants in the room. the vast majority do not like the president. america first will tell you that. when he's not direct hi in front of them, you know what they're going to be talk about entire time that. clearly there's going to be an enormous amount of news that comes from that. all the side conversations, the leaks, and how all of these countries are going to deal with their increasing questions about the level of equipment they should have to the only super power in the world. >> tomorrow we'll know. we can always say president trump is not predictable. >> you can say that. >> he's not predictable. you might be spending a lot more at the pharmacy than you need to. our dr. agus shows us how to lower prescription costs an why the responsibility lies

8:17 am
it will work. noimt what their insurance plan and in many cases i don't know what the cost of the drug is. it's difficult as a physician to do that. if a patient says it 'difficult to pay for that, i'm going to find the lowest cost drug and look at what it achieves and get the value. but most of time we don't know what it costs. >> there's a significant difference in cost between the generic and brand name, but sometimes there isn't a generic drug, right? >> no question about it. there are cases where you're going to have to use a brand drug. if there's brand drug to do one thing, there may be a generic drug that does something by a different means. there are hundreds of drugs you can get at a walmart for $10 for a 90-day supply without health insurance. there are a lot of drugs that are cheap. >> how do doctors decide if they're going to prescribe the
8:18 am
generic or brand name? why not always prescribe the generic? >> most of the time you write a drug. i don't know if they're generic. dr. scott gottlieb held up a list. et's not only generic. you have to look at generics that's a competition. it's a complex world in terms of pricing drugs. >> you say buy your prescriptions at the same place. why? >> because the pharmacist will look at all the drug yos're on and look at interactions. when you buy drugs from one pharmacy and then another, they don't know what drugs you're on. >> what other steps can you take? >> in many cases you have to use a brand drug. in that case if cost is an issue, google the name of the pharmaceutical company and
8:19 am
assistance. they can actually discount the drug or there can be coupons or other ways to lower the cost of the drug. >> it's worth reasking every once in a while if something can be shifted from brand name to generic, right? >> absolutely. you can say cost is an issue for drugs for me. is there another roy to achieve what you're doing without the higher cost. most of the time the doctors can. look at the primgss you're on and review them. a lot of them are legacy drugs. review that list every year. >> that's really important advice. always good to see you, dr. david agus. great to see you. >> great to see you guys. ahead, why more women are speaking out about their experiences. and construction workers thought they found a bomb under a new york city street. what they actually dug up. you're watching "cbs this morning."

8:34 am
do you call it a trend or has it been happening all along? >> it's been happening and people are speaking up. i have had women tell me horror stories but then you get to the moment of truth as a journalist and you say will you go on the record. in the past many women declined. now that's changing. >> why is that changing? >> my colleague had really hair-raising accounts of sexual harassment. it was like a waterfall effect where women were coming together. it wasn't about their individual stories. it was about the pattern. they had the documentation, by the way, which did not look good in the no,xharsh print. basically these messages from guys coming on to them. remember the context. these were women entrepreneurs who are trying to build companies and they need funding. they went to these venture
8:35 am
capitalists and they said here's my business case. >> most of them are men. >> exactly. and the men's response was to come onto them. so it left the women in a terrible position that and they're already at a disadvantage because the numbers show females received $1.5 billion last year compared to $52.8 billion for men. and you face a struggle. and if someone's hitting on you, they feed off this balance and a power struggle. >> exactly. there's so much more about getting women into a tech pipeline that you can send all the women you want to computer coding classes. if those women are going to be hit on when they try to get capital -- >> what is it about that culture? is it really that different from any other industry? >> i think why it's happening now, is we're seeing an indication across industries. many the last two years we've seen ceo loose their job because

8:37 am
the decency pledge, doing the right thing. >> hopefully the reporting of "the new york times" is putting people on notice. thank you, jodi. it's always good to have you here. research shows neanderthals shared me behaviors long considered unique today. the discoveries are taking place inside a huge cage recently declared a world heritage site. jonathan vigliotti takes us inside a cave in gibraltar where neanderthals once lived. >> reporter: this can transport you thousands of years back in time. we're heading to gorham's cave, once the home of our early ancestors and today the home of
