the administration's actual syria policy after the president long argued that isis was the main priority. u.n. ambassador nikki haley now talking about regime change. >> in no way do we see peace in that area with assad as the head of the syrian government and we have to make sure that we're pushing that process. >> reporter: so high stakes for tillerson's visit to russia this week where he will meet with his counterpart. unclear whether he will be meeting with russian president vladimir putin. russia warning that this u.s. strike has already taken the abysmal u.s./russia relationship to a new low, robin. >> alex, thank you. the u.s. facing tensions with north korea sending an aircraft carrier strike led by the "uss carl vinson" toward the peninsula. the carrier is over a thousand feet long, has more than 60 aircraft and let's bring in martha raddatz. let's listen to what national security adviser h.r. mcmaster had to say about the deployment of the carrier strike group.
7:08 am
>> north korea has been engaged with -- in a pattern of provocative behavior. this is a rogue regime that is now a nuclear capable regime and president xi jinping and president trump agreed that is unacceptable. what must happen is the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. >> it does seem to send a strong signal. >> reporter: it does. that carrier was originally headed for australia but this was seen as a prudent move given that north korea is about to test another nuclear weapon and it continues to make advances in its long-range missile program. this shouldn't be read that the u.s. is about to make a preemptive strike on those missiles but this does send the message to kim jong-un. and the timing is especially relevant given the action we just took in syria and the fact that china's president was just in those meetings with president trump where they both agreed that north korea's behavior has to change, robin. >> let's turn back to syria for a moment because we heard the secretary of state talking with george over the weekend and he
7:09 am
pretty much said it's up to the people of syria to decide the fate of their president, president assad but then you have nikki haley seeming to take a more forceful stance and said we have to make sure we see a leader who will protect his people and assad is not it. bit of a mixed signal. >> reporter: you know, i think these statements seem to send different signals and yet i don't think you can parse the words of this administration in the same way as previous administrations or you can assume at this early point they have an overall strategic policy there but in this case i would listen to rex tillerson who seems to be saying again that getting assad out is not the priority here and if you look closely at haley's comments she's not saying getting him out is the responsibility of the u.s. they want to push him but rather what the administration wants to see happen, robin. >> good points as always, thank you, martha. >> tillerson clear on no change in military strategy right now in syria. we're going to get the latest on that power struggle inside the

7:11 am
does -- hasn't been able to lay claim to a major accomplishment yet and some people are pointing fingers about why that's the case. >> reporter: after that mar-a-lago summit with china's leader, chief of staff reince priebus organized a face-to-face meeting between bannon and kushner. the drama falling on the heels of bannon losing his seat on the national security council. and overhaul approved by the president and endorsed by kushner. sources tell abc news bannon was so angered he threatened to resign but bannon called that claim absurd. the president's national security adviser also denying reports that bannon was demoted. >> this is not as significant as it appears and steve bannon provides the president with advice on a broad range of issues and will continue to do so. >> reporter: note that meeting between the two, we are told by source, was an attempt to smooth things over and start to move forward on the president's agenda. that's not the only drama happening in the trump white house. there could be another shake-up to come. much speculation about the

president's chief of staff in that's right, reince priebus. thanks. let's bring in john avlon with more. look at the three personalities. reince priebus, establishment republican, jared kushner is a democrat, before this year. steve bannon the alt-right populist. this is more than a personality clash and represent three different visions for the trump presidency. >> and three different political strains at war with each other philosophically and bleeds over to the personality. the big picture, you know well, dumbest thing you can do in politics is get into fight with the family. it's never going to win so you have the alt-right furious at donald trump for contradicting some campaign promises and bannon under a lot of attack. jared kushner representing what he calls the new york democrats, what bannon calls the new york democrats and reince priebus trying to hold it all together from the senate. >> one of your correspondents point out steve bannon could be in trouble outside the tent which is why he wants them to work it out. rex tillerson, heading to moscow tomorrow morning.
7:13 am
key meeting right here as russia is now saying the united states crossing red lines but i was struck when i spoke with the secretary of state how much tougher he is being on russia, much tougher than we've seen from president trump. >> one sign of just the corrects inside the trump camp. but the fact that he called out trump for trying to -- called out russia for trying to meddle in elections and europe and by implication they did it here is a direct contradiction of what trump as been saying about putin and russia up to this point. much more hawkish line someone seen close to putin in the past. >> "saturday night live" back taking on the politics. let's take a look. >> i just had an amazing week. i met with leaders from china, egypt and jordan. gorsuch was confirmed. the media is saying nice things and no one is talking about russia. wow, what a difference just 59 tomahawk missiles can make. >> the big question is what is
7:14 am
the lingering political fallout and what lessons does the president take from this. >> that's what is so unclear. no clear follow-through strategy beyond the one attack made, that strategic strike. satire sometimes cuts to the heart of the truth. the president had a good week in terms of the pageantry of the presidency saw him with foreign leaders and take decisive action after that horrific clip of chemical weapons but now what is the follow-through and sustained lessons he takes, tbd. >> thanks so much. now to the supreme court. judge neil gorsuch being sworn in this morning and abc's mary bruce has more on that. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it has taken more than 14 months of bitter partisan fighting to get to this day. but this morning, neil gorsuch will become the 113th person to serve on the supreme court. he'll be sworn in in two separate ceremonies first privately here at the court and laettner a public ceremony at the white house. gorsuch now fills that conservative seat left vacant by the death of justice scalia restoring balance back to the supreme court. robin. >> it does, thank you.

amy has the morning's other top stories starting with a dramatic scene on a flight. >> that's right. the video of it was posted on social media showing a man being forcibly removed from a united airlines flight in chicago. the flight was overbooked and the airline reportedly asked for four passengers to voluntarily take another flight. he refused saying he was a doctor and needed to see patients in the morning and you can see that united then took matters into their own hands. a shoot-out with police played out also on social media. a suspect opened fire on officers in covina while streaming it on facebook live. witnesses say he was taunting deputies to shoot him. he barricaded himself in a neighbor's home before surrendering and thankfully no one was injured. a second victim of saturday's shooting at the equinox gym has now died. the gunman was a personal trainer fired from the gym and then came back to shoot his former bosses. and finally a lesson one

burglarized the gun shop. where can he be? you look in logical places. where does he have a history? i'm concerned about the fact he mentions churches and schools. what is his history in those two areas. >> do you assume he's till in the state. >> his whole history is in the state. he has a multiple page rap sheet mainly misdemeanors in the immediate area where the burglary occurred so i'm going to guess that but you know, we don't know. he burned his car. he said basically i'm going to take you all on and look out >> that's the question. was he looking to attack let's say a school or church or something like that or to sort of barricade himself and go down in a blaze of fire? >> it's hard to say. now it's been a week. you would think if he was going to act he would have done it by now. so we'll have to see. yes, it could be come to me i'm going to take you on. >> he's got to know there's no way he's geting away in the end. >> george, when you write a manifesto and make a video like he made, you are to the end. this is going to be my hurrah is going out whatever happens with

7:38 am
22-year-old michaela surat slammed to the ground face first by a ft. collins police officer. it was posted online this weekend and vent viral viewed nearly 500,000 times in 4 hours. its caption, two words, seems excessive but police say it doesn't tell the whole story and were called to the scene to break up a fight between surat's boyfriend and another man and while they were talking to witnesses surat who is 5'9" and weighs 115 pounds shoulder checked a bouncer and one of the officers while trying to reach her boyfriend. he used a standard arrest control but her family disagrees saying the college junior and sorority sister suffered several bruises, a concussion and skin contusion. her family's attorney says we find the response attributed to law enforcement that is a standard procedure if true disturbing at best. critics say it is just the late nest a corps husband of videos
7:39 am
showing what they believe is excessive force like this one from 2015 where an officer was put on administrative leave after throwing a 15-year-old girl in texas to the ground and sitting on her after neighbors complained she and her friends didn't have permission to be at a community pool. >> get that out of here. >> reporter: this video from 2014 showing a 15-year-old girl riding her bike being thrown against a car and tossed to the ground after she tried to ride away from them. >> you can only use the amount of force required to get this subject under control, so you could easily see an investigation is showing that this was over the top, a little excessive. >> reporter: surat has been charged with third degree assault and obstructing an officer now out on bond. the cell phone video does not give the context of the full event and that after the investigation is closed, they will release the officer's body camera video which they say recorded the entire incident. robin. >> waiting to see that.
7:40 am
okay, linsey, we'll bring in dan abrams. there are a lot of things we don't know. what are the key questions here. >> the first one is what did happen right before the incident. the authorizes are right that that is incredibly relevant in assessing this. typically what you want to ask is was it reasonable and necessary to take this sort of action? and typically that would mean someone is trying to escape, someone posed a threat to society, someone poses a threat to the officers. those are the issues but with all of that in mind, it's still i think a bit of an uphill battle for the officer just by looking at the nine-second clip but they're absolutely right we cannot make a judgment until we've seen what happened before. >> exactly. and we saw in linsey's piece this has happened before. a lot of the reaction has been to this particular woman's size. does that have anything to do with it. >> it is relevant, all right. but the fact that she is a college student female shouldn't
7:41 am
be as important as her size. so if this was a black man of the same size, i hope that we would be having the exact same discussions about this because it's the same standard which is did this person pose a threat to the officers? and the size matters because if someone is incredibly large and is in some way form resisting that can make it harder to get that person in control and as a result tackling someone could be the appropriate measure. >> you do a show, a cop show where you do ride-alongs. have you seen anything like this. >> i have seen tackles like this. we do the show on a&e where we watch in realtime the officer does what they do and the times i've seen the officers use that maneuver has been either when someone is trying to escape and they're chasing the person down, they then tackle them or i have seen one instance where someone was actively and vociferously resisting. i've never seen one of them
7:42 am
happen where someone is just sort of putting up her arm and -- my guess is, look, she was probably mouthing off, right and who knows if that's the case but if she was, that's not enough. right? it's not enough. what is interesting is it is possible that both she committed the crime that they talk about, remember they talk about her being charged with a crime. assault for this on the police officer, possible she's both guilty of that and that the officer overreacted. again, i'm not saying she's guilty because you could say it is against the law for her to do that and yet that still doesn't justify the officer taking that action. >> as linsey said we'll see the body camera. >> that's going to be critical. >> it will answer a lot of questions. thanks very much. michael. >> thank you, robin. coming up on our big board, new concerns about bounce houses after two break down with kids inside. one flying right into traffic. we'll talk about that. we'll find out why some of the nfl stars could be in hot water over an arm wrestling contest. we'll come back in two minutes and ryan smith will join us for

7:44 am
7:45 am
we're going to be back with our big board and here at the table is our good friend ryan smith who is also working these days at espn. love you on "outside the lines." your story in a moment. first new concerns about bounce houses. after an incident at a south carolina carnival over the weekend five children injured after winds sent two inflatables high into the air crashing into a tree and a power line. joining us now is brian field a director of inflatables, that is a company that manufactures these types of products. brian, thank you very much for this. as you know, this isn't an isolated incident. just tell us about how these things happen. >> well, it really is a huge problem. there isn't any regulation so to speak and we're waiting for that to come into effect this fall but right now, these things can
7:46 am
be totally prevented by the use of a better staking. some manufacturers use a camping stake. something like this to tether the inflatables down because there's no regulation and they're trying to be kind to their customer by making it easy. we think we should err on making it kind to children becausing a large 30-inch or 40-inch stake on some of the larger inflatables. >> another serious danger is deflation. these bouncy houses deflate and another danger when you have kids inside. there is a new warning feature you're trying to make happen that you're going to show us what you're pushing to see if we can have some -- what do you have. >> let me show you. well, these inflatables are all at least a couple hundred pounds so you can imagine when they deflate a lot of viable on our children and can cause suffocation. they can get entrapped in the vinyl. here is a typical blower system that's always running. and so when the blower goes off,
7:47 am
we can have a disaster. here we have a watchdog device. this hooks up to the blower system so in the event a circuit breaker pops or the cords came unplugged or a common sent accident is children one might run around to the back thinking it's funny and turn the inflatable off. with this, we have a siren that will warn everyone it's time to exit the inflatable safely. so, parents are really concerned about how much cake and pizza. not really paying attention to inflatables like they should. the watchdog gives us a little more peace of mind because it's a failsafe device? that's great. any more suggestions for families, because, you know, the weather is getting nicer. people are going outside. these carnivals and parties what are your suggestions to families? >> well, i think the takeaway is really three things we can do as parents or those that host a party is, one, make sure the stakes are the longer stakes and that the kids are not going into
7:48 am
the inflatable when the winds are above 15 miles per hour or the weather looks nasty. the second thing is to have somebody that's in charge of the inflatable. many of these units are dropped off and we really need to have somebody like a lifeguard to the inflatable watching it making sure there's not too many children in it and the third thing would be the watchdog device even with an operator on board they can't always hear that the blower is running. if we use all three we'll have a real safe summer. >> very good tips, thank you, brian. very good. i'll never go to another bouncy house party without that. >> those stakes and alarm. >> thank you, brian. next up, time for you, ryan. some of the nfl's biggest stars, could they be in water over an arm wrestling competition that took place at a vegas casino over the weekend. 32 current and former players reportedly participated in the event and, ryan, what's going on here? a lot of people saying why is the nfl investigating. >> because the nfl has a rule that players can't do
7:49 am
promotional activities in casinos. this was the pro football arm wrestling championships at the mgm grand. why do these guys do this? come on, guys. but here's the deal. they did this event, winner gets 100 grand. half the upon goes to charity. the charity was related to the players association, so sounds all great, right but the nfl says you can't do these kinds of activities and found out just last week. one representative said had we known we might have told them it's possibly in direct violation of the nfl's gambling policy. even though they weren't gambling per se and machines were shut off and takes cleared you can't do something on a casino grounds. >> maybe the guys knew and that's why they didn't ask. >> you should see -- he was -- deaf night side eyes over here. nfl ever run up against anything like this. >> back in 2015, tony romo had a fantasy football convention and had it at a convention center, not even at a casino that was owned by a casino and the nfl
7:50 am
shut it down by basically sending out a letter saying you'll face fine, possible suspension, romo had to cancel. it ended up being a lawsuit. the nfl -- it got dismissed but they take it seriously. >> i get that. a lot of guys love vegas. no secret that players love to go to vegas, especially during the off-season. now you have a team moving to vegas so how will they enforce this? are they going to be able to enforce this. >> i think the nfl is at a crossroads. when they move the team to vegas roger goodell said we didn't have cho change our gambling policy to go to vegas. vegas is a gambling mechanic kachlt you do promotional activities. >> michael don't know any of this. >> i'm just saying you do promotional -- you might do -- >> no. >> look at him. >> i don't know -- ? i'm protecting him. >> he's staying out. they'll have to try to figure 0 this out. they can't have a team there and not work it out.

8:23 am
negotiating medical bills rosenthal says do your homework on what is a fair cost by using health care bluebook. when negotiating it is important to write letters, don't just call. you need a paper trail. she's written some templates for protest letters on our website. you can check out all those resources at goodmorningamerica.com. >> paper trail is key. we're joined by our senior medical contributor dr. jen ashton. you have a very busy practice. how much power does a patient have. >> more than they think. but sadly still not enough. because the reality is the world of medical billing is literally like a foreign language. so patients are going to be unfamiliar with that. and sadly most doctors are not really going to be making those final billing decisions and there's a host of other problems to name a few, of course, patients don't ask enough questions so an inspired enlightened educated patient is always ideal.
8:24 am
doctors sadly don't have a lot of the financial answers. and, again, the care we give to patients without insurance drives up the cost in part for everyone else so this is a very complex situation. >> so break down the larger costs for us. >> if you look at the pie chart with that $3 trillion budget take a look at these numbers. let's start with doctor bills that according to this book represent 25% of our budget. you have to ask if you have insurance, how much will this count towards my deductible? if you're paying out of pocket you are entitled to those numbers before you step foot in that doctor's office but don't ask the person making your appointment. ask for the billing manager or the practice administrator. then if you go to hospital bills, 45% of our annual budget, the key thing in the book, you want to ask if you have someone in the hospital, are they admitted under observation which is different than being admitted fully. hospitals can keep you for two nights three days under observation. you count as an outpatient if you're under observation which
8:25 am
can cost more and you may be responsible for those fees. so that's important. then if you go down to drugs and devices, 15% of our budget, again, with drugs, ask your doctor when they're writing that prescription is a generic okay. sometimes the answer will be yes. sometimes no and shop around. pharmacy to pharmacy. that is so important. my mom got her statin filled there was almost a $300 difference between pharmacies less than five minute as part. tests, you know, we are -- love to order diagnostic tests, this represents about 15% of our annual budget. you want to ask your doctor, what is she going to do with the results of that test before they order it. don't just do a test because you can. >> what else should be considered? i know some are thinking, wait a minute. i see where some hospital ceos and insurance ceos are making million dollar salaries here. >> that's right and, look, you know, people -- we have a big problem here in our health care system obviously. patients need to step up as we've heard in this book which i
8:26 am
think is an excellent book but so do doctors. in medical school we are taught literally nothing about the finances of health care. so we need to educate ourselves, not just about health care but about the finances and lastly, we have i think one of the best health care systems in the world. but it needs resuscitation. we have brilliant doctors but we need help. >> that's a good point. thanks very much.

8:31 am
course. but let me ask everyone a question, how many people here sat at the kids' table when you were growing up? >> oh, sure. >> well, that brings us to this next question. how do -- when do kids gad wait from the kids' table? >> in my case, never. >> never? >> oh. >> i love sitting with the kids but i think when they can sort of handle it. when they're able to handle the adult conversation or they want to. when they want to sit with us. >> somebody -- >> early. let them be part. >> i agree. >> for the one conversation. >> blessing of the meal and as long as they can make it. >> someone wrote into "architectural digest" and asked that and you are kind of right about it and suggested some are better behaved than adults. they said some people are 40 and don't know how to act and you can have a 4-year-old that knows how to act.
8:32 am
why not divide the tables and mixing it up over the holidays. maybe age, shared interests. somebody may love politic, george. >> i haven't thought of it that way. if you have to have more than one table mix it up all the way. >> take that aunt and uncle who fight every year, separate them. split them up. >> yep. >> they just suggested doing that to keep these meals interesting year after year and if your kid is old enough like you said to handle the conversation, let them in. you can help your kid actually expand and grow a little bit. >> we had kids like we have here, the cheerleaders that have been entertaining us on the commercial break. they can be at any table. [ cheers and applause ]ave some. >> yeah. >> found your mini-me. >> she said that was me with that. >> you with the bun. what's the most memorable year? someone asked that what was your most memorable year and put it to dance, how challenging that

would be. we see that on "dancing with the stars" and remember when our sweet ginger did that. how beautiful it was. well, she went behind the scenes at rehearsals and good morning, ginger, getting up bright and early. >> how are you? west coast "gma" always rocks. >> how are things in the ballroom? >> it's just as great as ever. actually better i would say. there are ten couples left. the freshness of the competition has now worn off so now it's the good part. you just add that emotion of dancing a story about yourself and this is a monday night that might even bring mr. t. to tears. it is sunday, dress rehearsal day at "dancing with the stars." look, i'm back on the dance floor. but it's not my most memorable week. it's theirs. sasha, simone, we got them all. ♪ are you starting to be able to be past the point about thinking
8:34 am
about dancing and feeling it. >> i get more nervous on sundays for blocking. you're seeing it for the first time and lights. >> yeah. >> sunday is the worst day. i said that when i came here. dress rehearsal day your least or favorite day? >> i think it's the most nerve-racking part of the whole process. >> i'm ginger again. >> i know. i watch you on tv doing the weather. you did this. >> dance is new to everybody who comes to this show but this one, you have to let your guard down. >> just the guy who beat people up even though i love beating people up sometimes, i don't have no problem with this but this dance shows my rank, i can be smooth, i can be warm. >> hope you enjoyed the dress rehearsal. i think it's going to be an outstanding show. >> that it is. i love this part of the competition because you finally see something different in their eyes, really every single person i talked to i think it's when the biggest growth starts because they all tart to break a little bit and reality sets in and then you really get vulnerable and emotion.
8:35 am
it's pretty cool, guys. i can't wait to see tonight? we always enjoy that. mr. t. kind of alluded to it, a chance for them to be able to show a different side than what the public may think, ginger. >> yeah, because many of them are performers so they play characters and sing, dance, do all of these things, this is the first time they're playing themselves and especially in this dance because it's for their mother like mr. t. is doing or it's for their children like nancy nankerrigan. >> mr. t. is honoring his mom. what about some of the other dances? can you give us any sneak peeks. >> nick obviously has had a pretty raucous year with "the bachelor" and everything leading up to it so he is honoring vanessa and his whole time on "the bachelor." a big group date. >> that's funny. >> r for a rumba it makes a lot of sense. and then we had, you know, simone, wouldn't tell me exactly. sounds like hers is extremely
8:36 am
emotional. maybe a story none of us have ever heard before. secrets come out and i think we all have found in that you're only as strong as your secrets and allowing people to get to know you so i think tonight is a night where you get to know those stars that you love and you love to see dance better than you ever have before. >> i imagine about at this point you saw up close you get a sense of what the relationship between each of the stars and their pros is like, as well. >> yes, and the honeymoon is over. i remember this time. i remember it so clearly. i would be looking at val and going, i don't know. it's like any relationship, you know, the first part is very exciting and there's all this energy and then it really settles in and you have to find a true groove with each other and i see that in some of them and others you can see they said this week was a difficult week and -- >> you're a veteran of the ballroom. what is your advice for these stars who i'm sure are up early to watch you? >> oh, yes, they're all awake.
8:37 am
i told them and i told almost every single one but many of those that i talked to, nick, nancy, allowing this part of them to come out in their face. i think, you know, their bodies, they're starting to dance and learn how to really dance, their pros are teaching them. they're amazing but allowing yourself to feel it and go et that emotion out is where they're going to win the competition. >> you into he had to be a coach. you are so insightful. it's fascinating. >> let me say this and we've said this, ginger, you were beautiful the season that you participated and the change that we saw in you since that time, your growth. you were already terrific to begin with so help me understand what this experience is like and how it does change you. >> and i don't think it matters how old you are. i don't think if you're a 16-year-old, laurie hernandez or mr. t. and you had a whole life, it does change you and every single person that does the show says that because it challenges you, it strips you down. we're experts at things that we do. i study the atmosphere and feel
8:38 am
very confident. allowing yourself to take a step and do something you're not comfortable with brings you to a first low place then you have to -- you find something in yourself you never even knew. at least that's what happened to me in we're still on team ze. i remember the pears we had. >> i'll just pretend the dance floor is mine. >> givenchy -- before we go, who do you think is the front-runner. >> normani looks like a professional dancer. heather is outstanding. the guys will have to push through. rashad is nice -- nice to look at -- i meant nice to dance. >> oh. >> oh, yeah. it sounded how you said it. >> that too. >> hey, ginger, thank you. have fun out there in the ballroom. >> thanks, guys. >> see "dancing with the stars" tonight at 8:00, 7:00 central right here on abc. coming up we're announcing the
