7:04 am
major garrett is in hamburg. good morning. >> good morning. president trump's encounter with the russian president will certainly grab the headlines, but it won't change the frosty relationship between washington and moscow. this g-20 summit is about global cooperation, something president trump is skeptical about, but that cooperation continues and is taking new forms. president trump and chancellor angela merkel held private talks before the summit. no mention of merkel's top agenda items with the u.s., climate change and nato. the president arrives having already canceled multi-nation trade talks with europe and asia. even so japan and the european union used a stage to announce their own trade packet
7:05 am

for more let's bring in dan senor. he served under george w. bush and is co-author. good morning. >> good morning. >> the two have taken hands. >> progress. >> but will he confront president putin and ask him to stop meddling. >> he says he won't and they say he won't. basically the most urgent geopolitical challenge right now, they're in a real time crisis, what to do about north korea and secondarily, what to do about, vis-a-vis, russia and syria and iran. it's not that he shouldn't discuss it other than the world is waping and they ear wondering if the president has something to hide.
7:10 am
issue he doesn't want to elevate it. the reality is if he said something, a minute, he could check the box and sort of take the air out of the tension that the -- >> dan, we're looking at live pictures as they prepare to take the group photo. they say, listen, if you don't take the issue, one, it's a dereliction of duty. adam schiff says he's intimidated to stand up to the kremlin. >> i don't think he's intimidated. look at the speech he gave yesterday. it was a pretty sharp speech as it relates to russia. everybody thought there was going to this cozy relationship between president trump and -- i mean putin and president trump, they're wrong. he blamed russia's complicity in what was happening in syria. so i don't think the president is reluctant to take a hard stand against russia, buttet's the perception that he sow
7:11 am
again, i don't think that's much there. i don't think he personally has much to hide, but there's something odd about talking about the potential meddling of russia in the election as some kind of delegitimate thing. >> to say, look, this is what you did, this is what we expect in the future. you mentioned syria and north korea. we haven't even talked about ukraine yet. >> right. >> how much can be addressed in this meeting if it's fwouk be an hour and 30 minutes is going be translation? >> to your point, in september 2016 president trump met with putin at one of these multi-lateral meetings and he brought up the russian meddling. you're right. 30 minutes? i'd say even less. even been in these meetings. 20, 25 minutes. there's not much to discuss and expect putin to filibuster.
7:12 am
if ukraine comes up, and it probably will, putin will probably talk about the history of crimea and why they have a national/nationalist attachment to crimea, and you have to understand the history. he's not a lot of times to get into the history. >> do they say the former kgb officer will come prepared. trump, they say, does not have a formal agenda plan. >> my experience has been is that any bilateral meeting, putin always has the upper hand. this is what president obama and president bush makes clear. he listens to your conversations, he cites that he's listening. he plays all sorts of psychological games. i think in terms of what you're saying, putin has the upper hand. >> putin has been doing
7:13 am
18 years. trump has been doing it for your six months. >> yes. >> when they have the meeting, we'll bring that to you. they're scheduled around 9:45 eastern time, 8:45 central time. a passenger attacked a flight attendant in midair. it happened on this boeing 767 jet last night. other passengers intervened right away to stop the man. the flight was headed from seattle to beijing. the pilot turned around landing back in seattle after the assault. jamie yuccas is in los angeles with how one passenger says he tried to help. jamie, good morning. >> good morning. the situation could have been a lot worse if it wasn't for the actions of the other people on the plane. the flight had been in the air for about 45 minute whence a passenger in first class assaulted a member of the crew. these are some of the passengers who were on delta flight 129 waiting to get to beijing after their plane wasor

7:15 am
>> reporter: the flight attendant was injured trying to subdue the passenger. >> she got hit twice and she had some cuts and her jaw was hit and then the other guy that got hit in the head, he was bleeding. >> reporter: the alleged assay land wa the assailant was arrested. >> two people were transported to the hospital. the remaining passengers were rebooked to a flight to beijing late last night. the man will be in court later on today. we do know he was really focused on the emergency door. he kept saying, norah, that he needed air. >> thank you so much. the fbi and homeland security issues a new warning to energy companies about the potential for cyber attacks on nuclear facilities. hackers working for a foreign government have been able to find vulnerabilities with companies that operate nuclear
7:16 am
spopsable. good morning. >> good morning. the frequency has escalated recently and that's what prompted the federal officials to issue the warning late last month. one is wolf creek corporation in kansas. the hackers were able to ben trait the business side of the nuclear facility but officials insist there was no threat to public safety or to operations at the plant. last month the fbi and department of homeland security issued a joint report warning businesses to watch out for specific types of cyber attack attempts by hackers. there was a similar report on russian cyber activity in december. in the latest incidents, we're told it's too early to attribute the attacks to a similar country. however, former officials familiar with it says they have to be close or at the top of the list of potential suspects.
7:17 am
jeff. >> jeff pegues, thank you very much. the top watchdog is calling it quits after repeated clashes with the trump administration. walter schaub is stepping down. he made the announcement in a letter yesterday to president trump. he said government officials must place loyalty to the constitution, laws, and ethical principles above private game. julianna goldman spoke to schaub just after his resignation. good morning. >> good morning. he was nominated by president obama and his tenure was set to end in january and as he took on the new president who was also his new boss, he wasn't sure if ultimately he would be fired. >> being able to say we're we'r criminal calls is not enough for government officials. >> he's cutting short his term as watchdog because he can't get the government to go beyond the bare minimum with ethical experiences. >> my experience has taught me that the
7:18 am
be stronger than it is. >> he told me unless president trump ends all financial ties to his businesses the american people can never be stern his decisions are based on what's best for the country. >> i can't know what their intention is. i know that the effect is that there's an appearance that the businesses are profiting from his occupying the presidency. >> schaub cited the president's frequent visits to his own property like the trump international hotel just blocks from the white house. >> why is it problematic for the president to visit his properties? >> the definition of corruption that's studied by people internationally is abuse of authority. so you don't want to be appearing to abuse your authority by having -- by creating opportunities to tiez your own financial interests.
7:19 am
>> he told us he attempted to address the issue with trump's legal team before the inauguration. >> the counsel to the president shouted us down when we tried to communicate that message. >> my two sons who are right here are going to be running the company. again, e don't have to do this. >> as mr. trump noted in january, there are no conflict of interest laws for a president, but his attorney gave another reason why he wasn't going to sell off his assets. he'd lose money. >> i have no sympathy for that. he's in a position where he's going to have to send young men and women in combat to die potentially or risk their lives. so, no, it's not too much to ask somebody to incur a bit of a financial loss to sell things off. >> in a statement to cbs news t white house said the president works closely with outside counsel to ensure there are no conflicts of interest. norah? >> julianna, thank you so much. a new derailment is making a summer of hell in the

it is friday, july 7th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump and russian president putin say hello ahead of their first ever meeting. what they're both looking for for this morning, and a look at how they dealt with each other if the past. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. president trump's encounter will certainly grab global headlines but it may not change the frosty relationship. >> does he have the upper hand? my .yeah er expience has been that any bilateral meeting that putin is in, putin always has the upper . hand >> the
8:01 am
disruptions a success and they expect thousands on the streets tomorrow. >> it could have been worse. the flight had been in the air for 45 minutes when a passenger assaulted a member of the ewcr. >>a watchdog in washington is calling it quits. >> previous experienc ethics has to be stronger. vice president mike pence ignored a sign yesterday. >> he could. resist. >> it's hard. you can't see those red all capital letters. the tour de france wrapped up stage six. the world east largest umbrella came flying in. >> can they get around that? >> i'll tell you what. that was unfortunate. >> yes, that was very unfortunate. you're in a bike race and as by old umbrella comes down on the
8:02 am
track. very unfortunate. i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell and jeff glor is here because? >> charlie is off. >> charlie is off. president trump and president putin shook hands this morning. it comes a day after trump issued some of his harshest criticisms. he said earlier i look forward to all of my meetings including my meeting with vladimir putin. much to discuss. >> their first session is the most anticipated event. the g-20 meeting brings the top economic power together to discuss trade, climate, and trade. police are spraying demonstrators with water cannons. officials say they blocked first lady melania trump from leaving her hotel this morning. >> sergey lavrov will also attend
8:03 am
president trump and president putin. rex tillerson has more experience and that could help with the meeting. major garrett is in hamburg, germany, with putin's relationship with u.s. leaders. good morning. >> good morning. president trump has only allotted 30 minutes with a meeting with president putin. with translation, that doesn't leave much time for pleasantries. that could make it interesting and awkward. >> i have no relationship with hum other than he called me a genius. the other debut tin called me a genius. >> maybe we'll have a good relationship. maybe we'll have a horrible relationship. >> as president, he must now keep his guard up. >> putin as a trained kgb officer, he's never caught off guard and he's never short of words. >> angela stent has written
8:04 am
extensively on president putin's relationships with american presidents and she's spent time with him. >> he's spend most of his life learning the strengths and weaknesses. >> he has charmed other american presidents, most memorably, president bush. >> i found him to be straightforward and trustworthy. i was a able to get a sense of his soul. >> president bush thought he was an ally especially after 9/11. putin shattered that with the invasion of syria in 2008. relations with former president obama further soured when putin housed national security leaker edward snowden and backed syrian dictate yerba shar al assad. their body lane
8:05 am
summit. >> he's got that slouch. >> president putin said he was insulted and wants to regain prestige with trump. >> he wants to come out looking stronger and that the relationship with president obama is over and president trump is going to respect him. >> putin and his team always look for the advantage. that means there are risks to the new american president. >> one of the dangers is you can get president trump to agree to something they might have to roll back. >> mr. trump has maintained all obama-era sanctions imposed for election settling. he said they were too toxic for progress. >> putin probably assumes he can't make a deal with me anymore because politically it would be unpopular for a politician to make a deal. >> in diplomatic circles ths
8:06 am
a legendary story. he brought a large black labrador to his very first meeting with german chancellor angela merkel after learning she was afraid of dogs. it's simple and straightforward, reminding h. to seek short-term objectives without anything breaking. peter baker has covered every administration since president bill clinton. his new book is "obama: the call of history." he's served as chief of the "washington post." good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> i'm okay. what are you looking for? what are you thinking? they say vladimir putin is very well trained. president trump, they say, is
8:07 am
what are you looking for? >> that's exactly right. as major put it, that's a lot to pack in in a half hour with translation. the trick is mcmaster, the national security adviser, said president trump doesn't have a specific agenda. you can be sure president putin does. if he starts talking, heal dominate the conversation, lobbying, filibustering. it will be interesting to see how these two people have circled around each other with so many issues, syria, ukraine, the investigation here in the united states hovering over them, it will be interesting to see how they manage to present both body language and actual substance. >> how do you think the kremlin will exploit the advantage of this meeting? >> the very fact of it is what the kremlin wants. they want the president on the world stage as the leader. remember, just two years ago, three years ago, p
8:08 am
in ukraine and the annexation of crimea. he was thrown out of the g-8, now g7. he was left on the sidelines of the g-20. nobody wants to talk to him. now he's the man in the middle. that's exactly what they want. they want him to be the central player. >> how important is it for president trump in the united states toia position. as you know, russia and china denying north korea even launched an ibm. >> hay come from such different world view. russia's reality is different from the reality of the rest of the world and they'll take advantage of that. you're right. this is kind of a test of manhood. both of these leader, president trump and president putin, they project masculinity, they're tough man, they value toughness in 50e67 other. one of the things i think we found with president obama is president putin took his measure, decided he was not a particularly strong leader, that may not have been
8:09 am
was his conclusion. he has a chest thrust out kind of relationship with other leaders and we'll see how these two go mano a mano. >> is there ground to come together on when it comes to north korea, the u.s. and china? >> yeah. the meeting is a different kind of meeting. president trump made friends with xi jinping in mar-a-lago. he professed what a good guy he was. he had hoped he would stop north korea and the proveeckive missile tests and so far that hasn't worked. you saw president trump on twitter say a couple of times, we tried, it didn't happen. the real test will be if america applies pressure on north korea other than military action, they're going have to take only some of these chinese entities. that's going to be the real test. >> do you get a sense from your
8:10 am
by the trump administration? >> i think it is. you saw a couple of weeks ago they sanctioned a chinese bank doing business with north korea. that's the first time it happened on a big league level. they're the real conduit in and oust the country. they've been reluctant because we have a pretty important relationship with china as well, but that's the economic leaver that's out there if president trump chooses to use it. >> a lot of speculation, peter. president trump will ask about the russian election meddling in the u.s. campaign. should he? will he? >> there's a lot of expectation that he should. he'll certainly hear from democrats if he doesn't. he said yesterday he cast doubt yesterday on whether it really happened. he said, i think it was russia. it could have been other places. nobody knows for sure. remember, intelligence agencies got iraq wrong. >> is it a sign of weakness if he
8:11 am
that kwa certainly and the democrats as well at home. to allow them to do it without confronting vladimir putin about it face-to-face would be a rather striking decision on president trump's part. >> all right, peter baker. we're all watching. we thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks very much. >> we appreciate it. 44 million americans benefit from government funded student loan programs. cbs financial analyst jill schlesinger, she's arrived. the challenge for freezing some

department to erase debt for students. they're suings the education didn't and betsy devos. >> it would have protected students of for-profit schools. it seeks to reinstate the loan relief rules finalized last year by the obama administration. >> president trump's proposed budget reduces the department of education's funds by more than 13%. it also aims to simplify and consolidate student loan programs. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> what is your take on this? >> it was a debacle. it went out of business. the students said, hey, we went through classes, we have no degree, we have all this debt. so they went after the government to help them out. it does two different things. one, it says to these
8:18 am
you must create an educational experience that will allow these kids to g etd a job, gainfully employed. the other thing it does is gives the kids the ability to go to the government and say, hey, i've got a problem, i need to negotiate it. ily was a problem here. those two rules are on ice and a lot of people are left in limbo. it doesn't affect the 15,000 in process but anyone who wants to do this can now do so. >> the didn't of education has released a statement that says this. the borrower-defense regulations suffer from substantive and procedural flaws that need to be -- >> the issue on this is, again, they believe there were problems with the process by which people can go through the questioning of why the loan is out there. there may be someee
8:19 am
administration's hands that they say, you know what? maybe these kids knew a what they were getting into and they've got buyer's remorse now. there is some issue on what the administration plans to do. >> why should the taxpayers bail out a student loan program when they went with a for-profit college? >> the issue is maybe the students didn't know exactly what they were getting, what they knew. there are some that really have targeted some lower income folks who really didn't understand what they were doing. remember, because federal funds are given to these colleges, there is some oversight. what they're saying is we want to scrap it. other things that are happening and really big is another lawsuit is going on. it's around the forgiveness program if you work the public sector. there are four individuals who are attorneys who are looking at this and saying,
8:20 am
declassify. in other words, if you work for a public sector company -- institution, you pay your payments for ten years, your loans will be forgiven after ten year. they got reclassified and they said you're not in the program. the forgiveness program is also under scrutiny. this is a big deal. keep an eye on it. >> student loans are an enormous issue. >> yeah. $1.3 trillion. >> thank you very much, jill schlesinger. ahead how the entertainment at an aquarium isn't just for the visitors. up next, a beluga whale shows his appreciate. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. you see an easy way to potty train pampers easy ups our first and only training underwear with an all-around stretchy waistband and pampers' superior protection so you'll see fewer leaks
