7:11 am
after a busy debut at the u.n., president trump is preparing to take center stage with his first address to the world. the president gave a preview of his message at his first meeting on monday, vowing to improve and reform the united nations. >> in recent years the united nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement, we must ensure that no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden. and that's militarily or financially. >> reporter: president trump told reporters his main message is, quote, to make the united nations great, not again, but make the united nations great. administration officials say the president will use his first address to the general assembly to call for less bureaucracy and more accountability. to insist other cups share more of the f
7:12 am
call out by name venezuela, north korea and iran for their threatening behavior. >> mr. president, do you have any comment about north korea? >> this will be a great week. we look forward to it. as far as north korea is concerned, i think most of you know how i feel. >> reporter: today president trump's audience will include u.s. allies, but also in the room, iran's president rouhani who will be closely listening for what trump will say about the 2014 iran nuclear deal. >> mr. president, do you plan to stay in the iranian knock deal? >> you'll see very soon. we're talking about it constantly. >> reporter: on day one at the u.n. trump made little mex of north korea but make no mistake, it will be a major subject of his speech today. you'll remember it was just a month ago that he warned of fire and fury, since then north korea's launched three missile tests. officials say the president will
7:13 am
george, indeed, the entire world must do more to rein in kim jong-un or, of course, that military option is there. >> the biggest threat we face, jon karl, thanks very much. >> we bring in chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz to talk more about this. okay, so the president's speech today, expecting tough talk when it comes to north korea. those are words, what about actions, martha? >> well, as jon said, robin, he will call on the world to help but a military option does remain on the table. defense secretary jim mattis emphasized that again on monday. but he added something very intriguing to his comments saying there are military options that would not put south korea's capital seoul at grave risk if the u.s. acted against north korea. when you have seoul with 10 million people just 35 miles from the north korean border and you know that kim jong-un would retaliate, that is one reason a military option is so ugly but mattis would not go into detail but experts say i
7:14 am
cyberattack or something they believe kim would not respond to or could not respond to militarily, robin. >> what about the recent military exercises? do they at least send some sort of message to north korea? >> robin, these most recent exercises are live fire exercises. they are real bombs on the warplanes and i went up in an f-16 fighter jet to the border which the u.s. patrols constantly. they were not armed. this week's exercises do send a strong message but kim knows what the u.s. is capable of doing and knows very well it is an option that no one wants to use and he surely factors that in, as well. which is why he continues with his nuclear program, robin. >> that's it. all right, martha, thank you very much. stay tuned later this morning, george will anchor our live coverage joined by martha and jon at 10:30 eastern time. >> we'll be here all morning long. 9 latest on the rust investigation. robert mueller and his team are zeroing in o p
7:15 am
former campaign manager paul manafort as the senate intelligence committee prepares to question trump's personal lawyer michael cohen today. brian ross here with the details and, brian, it is clear that paul manafort in the crosshairs of the special counsel. >> that's right, george. the counsel appears to be closing in on its first indictment in the russia investigation. one-time campaign chairman paul manafort is the target. fbi agents raided his home over the summer and "the new york times" reports this morning that prosecutors have threatened him with indictment. it was just last friday that manafort's own public relations person jason maloni spent two hours before robert mueller. maloni declined to answer questions as he left the courthouse. veteran prosecutor andrew weissman, 1 of 16 seasoned attorneys working for mueller. weissman, the former hid of the fraud section is known as an aggressive prosecutor, best known for taking down major mafia figures
7:16 am
crooks. manafort has made millions of dollars as a washington lobbyists whose clients are people tied to russia and people close to him say he's preparing for a serious and strenuous legal battle. >> we know he was wiretapped. one of the big questions is whether president trump was picked up in those taps. michael cohen going into the senate intelligence committee today. >> cohen is a guy that knows all of trump's secrets, both business and personal. michael cohen was deeply involved in the negotiations to build a trump tower in moscow. all at the very time candidate trump denied doing any business in russia. >> i don't deal there. i have no businesses -- i have no loans from russia. >> i have nothing to do with russia. i don't owe money. i don't have deals in russia. i don't know putin. >> i have nothing to do with russia. >> reporter: today cohen will be asked if what his boss and client said is true. he already turned over documents that showed trump signed a nonbinding letter of intent with a russian company to build the
7:17 am
to a $4 million initial payment to trump. to broker the deal cohen used a russian board middleman with a criminal record, felix sater who wrote in one e-mail to cohen, buddy, our boy can become president of the usa and we can engineer it. i will get all of putin's team to buy in on this. >> if you believe the reports about mr. cohen and the effort to try to create trump tower moscow, to me that's a relevant piece of information. we'll want to follow anyone who has got ties to russia. >> reporter: cohen will tell investigators he briefed trump at least three types about the moscow tower deal. saying that he ultimately abandoned the project because of difficulties obtaining financing and government approval. george, robin. >> all right. >> brian, let's get over to ginger with more on hurricane maria. >> we're watching that hurricane now next up would be st. croix, vieques and a lot of the islands make ware wray into the hurricane-force wi

7:32 am
result of outsiders who came here ihi campus police. the protests over a police shooting death at georgia tech turned violent overnight. it's not clear if the people who broke from the crowd and attacked campus police were even students but they torched this campus police car and wounded two georgia tech officers who had to be hospitalized. drop the knife. >> drop it. >> drop the knife. >> reporter: students on campus were outraged and upset after the shooting seen in this cell phone video. 21-year-old scout schultz a fourth year computer engineering major was killed saturday after police responded to calls that someone was outside a residence hall with a knife and a gun. police say that schultz was suicidal and was the one who made that call to 911. and in the cell phone video you hear him tell police to shoot him. >> no, drop the gun. >> reporter: his parents say it's clear in the video their son was having a mental

the next big thing to hit the juice aisle. afi sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding
7:36 am
than the standard treatment. ...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, u 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. what's new from light and fit? greek nonfat yogurt with zero artificial sweeteners. real fruit and 90 calories... you'll be wowed!

7:38 am
today in all these phones you have here and tim change our lives and so wonderful to have you here live with us, tim cook, ladies and gentlemen. >> thank you, thank you. thank you. >> yes. thank you for the live demo yesterday and earlier this morning ginger and some kids had a great time with ar. they were playing with various games and people want to know, augmented reality. it's different. >> yep. >> it's new. that's on apple right now, in fact, it's going to be downloaded later today. tell us why it's a big deal. >> this is huge because it's the first time that hundreds of millions of customers actually later today hundreds of millions of customers will be able to use ar for the first time. so we're bringing it to mainstream. if you have an iphone 6s or later you have augmented reality today. we've made it really simple for developers to design apps with their passion and bring it to everybody.
7:39 am
>> explain what it is, ar. >> it's taking the virtual world world. and so you saw a democrat poe earlier to position chairs in a living room. >> we're seeing that right now. >> it's a fantastic way to shop. it's a fantastic way to learn. you might even want to look at your favorite car and actually go in the car and so you have to do that in a showroom today, you can now do that right from your living room. it's unbelievable. [ applause ] >> well, it's fun. face it as you're talking about we're look at the set and looking at how we just saw it -- see, that's what we're seeing right now and then when we had the demonstration earlier it shows such a difference. now we have to admit ar has been around for awhile but apple is putting its stamp on it. what's making it different. >> we're taking the complex and making it simple. i mean, this is what apple is so
7:40 am
fantasticat we want everybody to be able to use ar and so we've taken the complexity that developers would normally have to do in their apps and made it simple for them to convert all of their apps to an ar experience. and the thing that's very different about apple is in one day, we can make ar available for hundreds of millions of people and that will happen in a few hours from now. >> get ready for the download. you know when it says a download that's what's going to happen on your phone. >> this is a day to remember. this is a day to remember. this is a profound day. >> let's talk a little about the 8 and 10. the two new phones and wonderful options part of it. but there's one facial recognition that's getting a lot of attention. people are saying, wait a minute here. what is the potential of -- because we're talking about this facial data, millions of people and the potential that it could be misused or hacked. should people be concerned about that, tim?
7:41 am
>> not wit because we're about your privacy. we want to protect your data because we know it's yours, not ours. and so once you place your face in the phone, it's in the phone. apple doesn't have it. we've encrypted on your device. you make the decisions about who has it. not us. we're very protective of our customers' data because we believe that privacy is very important in this world, that there are hackers everywhere trying to steal your information. we want it to be yours. it is not ours. >> that's been the hallmark of apple from the very beginning. >> we fought very hard for it. >> the headphone jack gone. now the home button gone. i know you said the space is a premium on the phone. what's next? why the home button. >> you know, the home button is belogged but we think having an
7:42 am
edge-to-edge display such that the whole phone is will be loved even more and so we're doing that for all of us. >> okay. well, we have a couple of questions from our viewers but i do want to ask you one question, though, your response to when president trump announced that he was going to change the laws that protect d.r.e.a.m.ers, daca, you mentioned to your beloved apple employees that there were 250 d.r.e.a.m.ers that you have and you encouraged them and said you were dismayed by that but now that the president seems to be willing to at least compromise with the democrats are you encouraged by that at all? >> i am encouraged about it. these folk, i think this is really important for everybody to understand, these folks came to the country when they were very young. most of them don't even remember coming to the country because they were 1, 2, 3 years old at the time and these kids, if you talk to them, they deeply love this country. they have great jobs. they pay taxes.
7:43 am
these guys they're our co-workers and so we feel it's essential that we not only allow them to stay in our country but we welcome them, that we desire that they be here. i hope everyone reaches out and meets some of the d.r.e.a.m.ers, because it will really warm your heart in meeting them. and so i am encouraged that congress will pass a law to make this permanent and we're doing everything we can to advocate for that. >> good we're having this dialogue. thank you for discussing that. okay. back to the phone and the questions from -- they didn't hold back. you know that. you know they never hold back. one viewer asks, you knew this was coming. i understand inflation, et cetera, but don't you find the price tag for the iphone x out of reach for the average american? >> well, it's a value price actually for the technology that you're getting and as it turns

out, you periods of time. and so very few people will pay the price tag of the phone initially. also most people actually trade in their current phone and so that reduces the price further and some carriers even throw in subsidies and discounts. and so when we look at it, the phone -- the iphone in particular has become so essential in our daily lives, people want it to do more and more and more and so we built more and more technology in to be able to do that. >> i love how you told me you don't want to sell the most, you want to sell the best. >> apple has never been about selling the most of anything. we don't -- that is not our objective. our objectives are not big revenues. our objective is to make the best product that enriches people's lives. >> all right. >> we want to help people. >> i know you do. here's another question. this one says about face i.d.

stop. years. the first time i've heard of anything happening as it reeled to that. >> reporter: these surveillance videos were released after a possible suspect. >> fortunately the victim had the presence of mind to look at the number of the train car and give that information to our police officer. so with that information we were able to download the video and review the video. >> reporter: dragland says she may have a television show to thank. >> it might have been "law & order." i don't know why i did it. >> reporter: fitness and self-defense expert says while the faked seizure worked for dragland he has more practical tips on how to stay safe. >> the biggest suggestion i'd give is make noise, yell, say help. that actually really does work. >> reporter: but if things do get physical, try this. >> what i want you to do is grab my wrist here and then reach back as asghar farhadi, scoot your hips back toward me. >> right there but that's exactly what would happen.

8:18 am
if you're caught off guard is that you freeze and so the biggest thing is to try to avoid this. be aware of your surroundings, don't be buried in your phone because you become a target. >> that's good advice. >> great advice. >> thank you, diane and ginger, thank you for the help, as well. now we go to that high school dress code that is spark a backlash. a cool in wisconsin is requiring students to submit photos of their dresses before they can buy tickets to the homecoming dance. amy is here with the details. good morning, amy. >> good morning. more than half of school districts in the united states enforce some sort of dress code but this particular high school is taking things to a new level and sparking outrageous before its homecoming dance. some are saying it seems to just be targeting female students. strapless, low back and cutouts were some of the hottest dress trends at the emmys but these hollywood looks won't be allowed at one high school's homecomeing. >> we're not allowed to wear two-priest dress, have not been able to show any of our back, strapless, low cut, anything like that.
8:19 am
>> >> reporter: nicole is wisconsin where dress codes have been strict and recently the administration sent an e-mail reminding parents and students that before purchasing a ticket, we are requiring all dress-wearing students or non-phs guests to provide a picture of themselves in their homecoming attire. >> i think the fact we have to submit a photo of ourselves wearing it front and back is a little bit kind of creepy to me. >> reporter: but nicole's friend calista who carefully chose her dress according to guidelines are concerned it may not make the cut. >> it has a little cutout at the chest which i'm worried about. >> reporter: the school says they require these dress photos in advance so students aren't turned away at the night of the dance. >> honestly i'd much rather get turned away at the door than to send a picture of myself wearing a dress. >> i just don't want them to go too far to the point where when you go shopping and can't find anything because you're worried about the back, the front, worried about everything.
8:20 am
>> reporter: while almost 64% of schools have dress codes some thinks this sends the wrong message. >> what we're looking at arbitrary standards that an adult gets to decide and what to does is shame the young person and says you don't get to belong here because of the way that your body looks. >> reporter: on monday they updated their policy saying if someone feels uncomfortable sending in a picture, a parent can e-mail an administrator saying their child understands the guidelines and will comply with the dress code. >> and amy and i are joined by ericka souter from and thanks for joining us. but this dress code, it seemed to target female students and what a message is it accepting to young girl sfs we try to teach our kids that girls and boys are equal. this is the exact opposite message and what parents are telling us they're worried if there's too much focus on their young girls' bodies and may make them more self-conscious and
8:21 am
make them feel like sexual objects an teaches are problems and what they wear is a problem. >> amy, we both have girls about the same age so i'm curious, with you, do you think the dress codes for dances are even a good idea necessarily. >> my daughters have gone to a school where they have a school uniform and it was very strict. now my daughter da is in public high school and, whoa, is it different. i do think an institution has a right to say we want to set certain standards but they should apply to both girl answer boys and shouldn't just be targeted toward girls. i think it's ridiculous and offensive to ask you to send a picture of your daughter front and back for them to inspect. that to me is outrageous. >> yeah, i agree on that point. but if you do have your child and amy said, whoa. and walking out the house or they want to wear something you're not too sure about how do you have the conversation with them. >> quell, you know it's okay for parents to set rules. you can tell your i hads can there is an appropriate way to dress. that's what our job is as
