the general election. before he takes on the democratic nominee, he may have to win over house speaker paul ryan. we have more now from abc's tom llamas. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan says he's willing to step aside as chairman of the republican convention. ryan saying it's donald trump's show, donald trump's rules. >> he's the nominee. i'll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention. >> reporter: ryan now also seeming to soften his tone after declaring he wasn't ready to endorse trump. >> i never said never. i just said at this point. i wish i had more time to get to know him before this happened. i didn't, but we just didn't. >> reporter: trump now further alarming republican leaders with what sounds like a flip-flop on taxes after promising to lower taxes on everyone, includings the rich, trump now telling george this. >> bottom line, do you want taxes on the wealthy to go up or down? >> they will go up a little bit and they may go up. >> but they're going down in your plan. >> no, no, in my plan they're
going down but by the time it's negotiated, they'll go up. >> trump trying to clarify saying wealthy americans will get a tax cut but just how much is open to negotiation. >> they're still going to be paying less than they pay now. i'm not talking about increasing from this point. i'm talking about increasing from my tax proposal. >> clinton now trying to build a solid lead among those swing voters meeting with suburban moms in virginia. she's trying to ignore trump's attacks tying her to her husband's sex scandals. >> and hillary was an enabler and she treated these women horribly. just remember this. and some of those women were destroyed not by him but by the way that hillary clinton treated them after everything went down. >> reporter: it didn't stop there. >> in all of the men we're petrified to speak to women anymore. we may raise our voice. you know what? the women get it better than we do, folks. they get it better than we do. >> reporter: clinton refusing to respond. >> and i have been very clear
that a lot of his -- a lot of his rhetoric is not only reckless, it's dangerous. >> reporter: recently donald trump has spoke in glowing terms about senator marco rubio but rubio said he doesn't even want to be considered for the vp spot saying he still has reservations about trump's campaign and many concerns about his policies. tom llamas, abc news, new york. >> the troubled ferguson police department department has its first african-american police chief. delrish moss was sworn in yesterday. the department has been under intense national scrutiny since the fatal shooting an of michael brown in 2014. moss faces several major challenges including budget problems and adhering to the hundreds of provisions in a u.s. justice department agreement. a man claiming to be the biological son of prince has come forward. 39-year-old carlin williams filed paperwork in a minnesota court requesting dna testing and he wants to be declared the late singer's so surviving heir.

happen to me knowing what the name isis means for muslims it really hurt. >> the school is investigating how the mix-up happened and the distribution of the yearbooks has been halted. so after missing the first three games of this nba playoff series, steph curry came off the bench last night to lead the golden state warriors to a 132-125 victory over the trail blazers from portland. this was in overtime, by the way. . >> the warriors now lead the series three games to one, heading back home to oakland. meantime, espn is reporting curry will be named the nba's most valuable player. no surprise. this will be for the second straight season but the big surprise steph curry may be the first unanimously chosen mvp in the league ever. not jordan, not lebron. not your other favorite nba players. you know. >> steph curry has the nicest eyes out of all of them. i think that's why.
>> is that why he was chosen? >> i think so. yeah. >> he's the prettiest. >> and michael jordan as we discussed because of pro stars he gets my vote. i like the cartoon, and "space jam" is awesome. >> yes. okay. >> so it's been kind of a rough season for ball boys. you might recall this from the barcelona open last month. a ball boy trying to get out of a player's way accidentally trips and falls face first into a wall. we were told he was -- >> he's okay. >> perfectly fine. he's okay. >> so then this time it's the italian open. rome. coco vandeweghe versus venus williams. when the action moves off court, a ball boy passes out. yeah, face plant even. clearly he doesn't know what hit him. we're told he was overcome by heat but he's okay. >> i feel bad for the ball boys. they're running around. they're in this horrendous heat
and everyone is obviously fully paying their attention to the no one ever thinks the ball boy might need some water, as well. >> that poor kid. >> come on, people. stop neglecting the ball boy. >> he's okay. we'll send more love to the ball boys. >> his pride might be hurt but i'm giving love to the ball boys today. i'm feeling for them. >> full face plant. i mean -- >> coming up -- be. >> i don't want to laugh at it but it's hilarious. >> coming up, we have a miracle. a facelift in a bottle. scientists have unveiled a second skill that makes bags and wrinkles just disappear. could this be the fountain of youth? >> we're one step closer to the mirror ball trophy. who ended up getting the boot last night despite earning her first perfect score on "dancing with the stars"? uh-oh. you're watching "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now"

poof, they're gone. and all without an injection or pricey procedure. >> well, it also can act as kind of a liquid spanx. >> reporter: what they found is if you combine this invisible cream with a catalyst, it creates an adherent layer on top of the skin that is invisible and can mimic the properties of young healthy skin. scientists say it's composed of commonly used chemicals deemed safe by the food and drug administration, and can also be used to hold medicine in place to treat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. to date, they say none of the 170 subjects included in the study has reported irritation or allergic reactions. this skin can last for more than a day and can be removed by washing it with a solution. no word just yet on when it will be available or how much it will be, but considering that last year more than 200,000 americans had cosmetic eye surgery, there's certainly a market for it. linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> a lot of people are going to
