what i've always done... dream more, dream faster, and above all... now, i'll dream gig. now more businesses, in more places, can afford to dream gig. comcast, building america's largest gig-speed network. trump sticking up for russia and sticking it to allies. >> russia should be in this meeting. why are we having a meeting without russia being in the meeting? >> why is it that he's so interested in flattering one of the most brutal dictators in the world? >> what i would say to leaders is welcome to america first. >> i said i've been preparing all my life. i always believe in preparation, but i've been preparing for all my life.
3:01 am
casinos and theme parks, mr. trump may feel right at home next week on singapore's sentoso island, what are some are calling the meeting of the century. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> so grateful to have you with us this morning. the eyes of the world are on a small canadian town where in minutes president trump is going to be with some of america's closest allies for what cower a historic and at the same time contentious meeting. >> and big questions -- are the world's possibly moving forward without the u.s.? does america first now mean america alone, and how will leaders feel when president trump leaves the meeting early to prepare for his meeting with kim jong-un?
3:02 am
boris sanchez is live in quebec city. what do we expect from the president today? >> reporter: good morning. if it's anything like yesterday, we won't see fireworks unexpected considering that going into the g7 we saw so much bluster and tough talk on twitter from president trump going after his french and canadian counterparts in emmanuel macron and justin trudeau calling them out by name for what he calls unfair trade practices. if trump wanted to isolate himself and the other six leaders of the g7 would ultimately decide to move forward without him, despite all of that, upon arrival president trump was downright chummy with the other world leaders, specifically macron and trudeau, before departing for quebec>> trump actually promised that he would get together with them, and in his words, they would all fall in love again. here's some of what he said with the two leaders yesterday --
3:03 am
>> justin has agreed to cut all tariffs and all trade barriers between canada and the united states. i'm very happy. >> we're in good shape -- >> we are working on it. we are actually working on it. but our relationship is very good. the united states has been under a big trade deficit with the european union, and we're working it out. and emanuel's been helpful in that regard. something's going to happen, i think it will be very positive. >> reporter: the president with a sense of humor there. the nations haven't ironed out their trade issues, part of the reason the president has been abrasive to the united states' closest allies. today the president is taking part in a gender equality breakfast, then the traditional scroll signing, and a working group before ultimately departing early. he's leaving at about 10:30 a.m. there are sessions going on that he was to participate in,
3:04 am
dedicated to the environment and climate change. perhaps not a surprise that he's skipping those as he's previously claimed climate change was a hoax perpetrated by the chinese. we should point out one other thing -- a lot of leaders, trudeau, macron, teresa may or shinzo abe are holding press conferences, open questions with a number of press outlets there. president trump not doing that. he's suddening straight for -- he's heading straight for singapore for his history meeting with north korean leader kim jong-un. >> boris, thank you. breaking news overnight. russia says vienna is being considered as a venue for a possible president trump-president putin summit. yesterday, trump said russia should be given their seat back at the table. >> john mccain slammed the comment with a reminder about history writing, "vladimir putin chose to make russia unworthy by invading ukraine and annexing
3:05 am
crimea. the president has inexplicably shown our adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies." cnbc cnn's brian todd with more. >> reporter: analysts say it's the kind of endorsement the russian leader vladimir putin could only dream of getting, but now it's coming from a very powerful source, the president of the united states. >> russia should be in this meeting. why are we having a meeting without russia being in the meeting? >> reporter: president trump's impromptu idea to reinstate russia into the g7, the elite group of the world's leading industrial nations, delivered on his way to the summit is exactly the type of victory critics say putin wants. >> president trump extending this invitation does make vladimir putin's day. it's accomplishing everything putin has set out to accomplish in dividing the united states from his closest partners. >> reporter: experts say putin is facing trouble at home like a stagnant economy, and that he longs for the days of the soviet union when his country was
3:06 am
considered a superpower. they say he isn't so much trying to strengthen his own hand as he is trying to destroy others. that's why analysts say trump's public battles with his nato allies justin trudeau and emanuel macron play into putin's hands. >> putin's goal is to weaken democratic institutions in the west. whether it's informal organizations like the g7 or formal organizations like nato, the fact that trump is playing along for mr. putin lives the united states in a bad place. >> reporter: members of trump's own party appear to agree with that assessment. senator ben sass saying in a statement, "this is weak, putin is not our friend, and he is not the president's buddy. he is a thug using soviet-style aggression to wage a shadow war against america." from senator mccain, "the president has inexplicably shown or adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies." russia was suspended from the g7
3:07 am
after putin's 2013 annexation of crimea, then part of ukraine. since then putin has doubled down on aggression, meddling in the american elections, allowing warplanes to buzz american ships, and allegedly poisoning his adversaries, even on foreign soil. the president claims he has been tough on putin, leveling hard-hitting sanctions on the russian president and his friends. >> i have been russia's worst nightmare. if hillary got in, i think putin is probably going, man, i wish hillary won. >> reporter: many analysts disagree saying trump's appearance deference to and compliments of putin have only fueled putin's swagger. one example, in interviews in week putin says -- said he's got no plan to release crimea to ukraine. and speaking about the in russia, a threat to which there seems to be no public evidence of. >> translator: i hope that there will not be provocations by ukrein during the world cup. if this happens, it will
3:08 am
negatively effect ukrainian statehood. >> he's threatening ukraine, an extraordinary thing to do. on the other hand, he's already instigated war in ukraine. the fact that he's threatening their statehood, sovereignty, is deeply problematic. >> reporter: for his part, vladimir putin recently denied trying to divide the european union saying the eu is his biggest trading partner. analysts say it's a contradiction of what he wants to do, to divide the u.s. and them from each other. >> what experts say is a clear defiance of not getting a seat at the g7 table, vladimir putin is on a state visit to china, holding his own huddle with xi jinping xi and spending downtime together at a hockey match. >> joining us, errol lewis, political commentator and political anchor for spectrum news. errol, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's talk about russia now.
3:09 am
the president said no one has been rougher, tougher on russia than the president has. when i heard him say that, i thought that's a surprise. >> it seemingly came out of nowhere. >> do what the prompt was saying that russia should be readmitted to the g7? >> it's extraordinary, victor, because it shows president trump trying to do more for russia than russia is trying to do for itself. yes, it clearly would like to be part of the g8, the former g8 once again. on the other hand, when asked about it, the russian diplomats said this is not a high priority for them. so this is the president making this claim saying, gee, why aren't they here, as if it were some oversight, without reference to the violence, the flagrant violations of international law, the annexation of crimea, the troops in eastern ukraine, and the abundant human rights violations that have gone along with that stuff. no mention from the president of the united states. it really is extraordinary.
3:10 am
>> and official u.s. policy, no mention of that either. i went to read the state department's official statement on u.s.-russia relations, and here's what it says specifically of the annexation of crimea -- russia held on illegitimate, fabricated referendum in ukraine in a futile attempt to legitimize its purported ann annexation of crappanne annexation of crimean relations -- sanctions in place of russian results. is the president flouting u.s. policy or changing it, rewriting it? >> i think really more the la lalast -- the latter. the president is commander in chief and sets the policy. no matter what people might think to the contrary, he's clearly trying to change the relationship that we have. i mean, the policies that you described, the statement that you read, that's been policy for quite a long time. it's in keeping with international norms and with
3:11 am
longstanding u.s. policy. i'd like to also say that there's a filmmaker named oleg sensov who's been rotting away in a siberian prison for a number of month, he's on a hunger strike. and that was in connection with the illegal annexation of crimea. to the extent that we've got human rights violations, people on hunger strikes, people who are trying very, very hard to sort of undo the wrong that began in 2014, for the president to sweep it away and say i think they should rejoin the company of the major nations of the world, really extraordinary. >> so the president bookends the g7 summit with the comments about readmitting russia then leaving early to head to singapore for the upcoming summit with kim jong-un. when you -- when juxtaposed to being with our allies there in quebec and leaving early to go
3:12 am
and prioritize kim jong-un, what's the impact beyond just this meeting do you think? >> look, it is a signal to the closest allies of the united states that the administration is taking a very different approach than prior administrations, republican and democratic. that he's focused on this denuclearization effort which i think everybody agrees is a great thing. and probably could be an extraordinary breakthrough for security in that region. on the other hand, who are you going to do this with? the multilateral approach that has worked so well for the last 70 years, it's something that we can't feel it's a surprise. president trump has always expressed a certain amount of disdain for the way diplomacy has been done. he's going in an entirely different direction, this notion of a go-it-alone, one-on-one relationship with russia, china,
3:13 am
without allies at our side. i want to hope for the best. i think we all should hope for the best, but it seems a dangerous way to go about rewriting the rules of the game when it comes to international diplomacy. >> we'll see what comes the next few hours there as the g7 summit continues. thank you very much. >> thank you. still to come, we have cnn's anthony bourdain and what he meant to people, how people are reacting. but even more so, how his curiosity, how his passion for exploring cuisine and culture did so much more than we even ever probably realized at the time. plus, as we discussed, president trump will be on his way to to meet with north korean leader kim jong-un very soon. we'll take a look at the venue this historic korea summit. and champagne flies and the golden state warriors win a third title in four years.

so many people are still trying to reconcile what has happened in the last 24 hours. anthony bourdain here at cnn, our colleague, died at the age of 61. he took his own life. he was found in his hotel room in france yesterday where he was working on an upcoming episode of "parts unknown." a talented chef, traveled, gifted storyteller. he used his books and shows to explore cuisine, but more than that, culture. >> he was a master of his craft. and his awardwinning series, "parts unknown," highlighted how much we all have in common. paolo sandoval shows us how he really made the world seem far more accessible. >> reporter: few people know anthony bourdain the way eric ripert did. he often appeared on "parts unknown" with bourdain.
3:19 am

"it made me feel more connected to the planet, its people, and cultures, and made my time there more palatable. he inspired me to see the world up close." among the tributes, messages of prevention. celebrity chef gordon ramsey says, "stunned and saddened by the loss of anthony bourdain. remember thatsh help is a phone

3:22 am
of his a lot. do you understands what happened or why? >> i do not. the last i knew, he was in love. he was happy. he said "love abounds," some of the last words he said to me. that was a while ago. when i saw him, he looked tired. but i have no idea. i think his best friend, eric ripert, was with him and found him. eric would be the only person who'd know and i don't know if he knows. i don't know. >> you've heard people say there's nobody like anthony bourdain, and there was no show like "parts unknown." to that, we want to pay tribute to anthony bourdain, cnn, with a special night of episodes beginning tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern right here only on cnn. president trump will be on his way to singapore to meet with north korean leader kim jong-un very soon. we'll take a look at the venue

quebec, beautiful location for the g7 summit this morning. president trump preparing for day two of the summit to meet with america's closest allies. everything starts in a couple of minutes. after very public sparring with leaders of france and canada, day one had no major fireworks. instead we heard jokes and saw photo ops with the world leaders and signs that progress possibly, possibly is coming on trade disputes. >> we know president trump is leaving early to head to to prepare with his historic summit with kim jong-un. that meeting scheduled for tuesday. secretary of state mike pompeo is taking a tough stance on north korea and the nuclear program there. secretary pompeo says all north korea's nuclear weapons must go before sanctions end. >> and in a few hours, president trump is heading to that meeting, as i said, with north korean leader kim jong-un. cnn's will ripley is taking a

3:30 am
balanced, and we have clues as to who may have a seat at the table. trump has met kim jong-un's right-hand man, kim yong, at the white house this month. that makes him a likely partner for kim on his flight to singapore. along with his trusted younger sister. on the american side, mike pompeo, the secretary of state, has made kim jong-un in pyongyang twice. >> there will be tough moments, there will be difficult times, i've had some difficult conversations with them, as well. >> reporter: perhaps philippines' ambassador, a veteran of korea diplomacy, who set the stage for tuesday's summit with planning meetings on the dmz. the entire cappella resort is on lockdown for the talks. perhaps only the peacocks allowed to roam freely on the pristine 30-acre grounds. soon this secluded island will host two nuclear armed leaders for what promises to be a surreal, first-ever encounter between a sitting u.s. president and north korean supreme leader. will ripley, cnn.

3:39 am
for us. >> reporter: paul manafort in new legal trouble as he and his business associate, a man with alleged ties to russian intelligence, are fg new criminal charges after allegedly tampering with witnesses. according to court filings, the special counsel's team is charging manafort and kostantin kilimnik with conspiracy to obstruct justice meaning they allegedly worked together to try to convince witnesses to commit perjury. the first time mueller is named kalimnik in collaborating with politicians. the 20th person to face charges in the investigation. friday's move to bring charges ramps up the pressure on president trump's former campaign chairman to cooperate with mueller's probe. under house arrest for more than seven months, manafort recently got a glimmer of hope that mueller's team might be amenable to allowing him to be released on bail. in a sudden shift, prosecutors unveiled the alleged witness tampering and requested he be sent back to jail to await trial. the obstruction charges come on
3:40 am
top of charges manafort faces for failing to disclose his lobbying work for a foreign government and other financial crimes. he's currently awaiting two trials, and he's maintained his innocence. if he is found guilty, the 69-year-old could be sent to prison for the rest of his life, sara murray, cnn, washington. legal analyst and defense attorney joey jackson with us now. from a legal perspective, manafort's attorneys assert the new charges were based on the thinnest of evidence, we understands an 84-second phone call, text messages between manafort and two former business associates. what has to be present in those communications to incriminate or bring these charges? >> good morning. you know, obviously there's an imperative on any defense attorney, including myself, to get the upper hand in terms of public relations. you're not going to say, my goodness, my client is guilty. they caught him red-handed. you'll say the evidence is thin, the evidence doesn't reach a
3:41 am
standard beyond a reasonable doubt, and we will prevail. the reality is this -- the reality is that the special counsel is asserting and alleging that there was tampering as it relates to witnesses. what is problematic about that is generally if they know that, they have documentary evidence in the form of text messages and this other information -- and other information because the government watches you and follows you. many clients think they're under indictment, they can talk to whoever they want, go after whoever they want, they can. everyone's entitled to the presumption of innocence. we remind everyone that an indictment is an allegation, we get that. the reality is that if the special counsel has superseded the indictment, what this is called, and filed a new indictment is they have the goods that relate to him and a co-conspirator trying to influence testimony. in the court of law, the standard is proof beyond a reasonable doubt. we'll see if the government gets there, the adding of themselves in and of itself is problematic,
3:42 am
and it also, we should add, could affect his liberty in as much as there's a hearing to determine whether he should be put back in until such time that there is a trial. >> right because he is currently on release, condition of a pretrial release that they want to change. i want to read this statement, attorneys saying his sixth amendment right to trial by impartial jury in this district may have been irreparably damaged by the special counsel's latest very public, very specious filing of this motion. did in your opinion special counsel mueller cause this problem with seating an impartial jury? >> you want to make it seem as though your client is under allegations and not guilty. this was a public attempt by the special counsel to bring him in compliance. the argument from their side is going to be you brought that
3:43 am
upon yourself. the facts are is that in the event that the allegations are true and that you were trying to speak to witnesses and influence their testimony, that's a problem. and the government has an obligation to address that problby virtue of holding you kablg. the way they -- you accountable. the way they do that, a judge will remind any jury the indictment is an allegation. 23 members sit, the majority of which, 12 say, there's reasonable cause to believe that a crime was committed and that manafort committed it. he's not guilty by any stretch, that's -- yet to be proven. but obviously in doing their job, it's not a secret. so, you know, the special counsel is doing what they do. they're not leaking information, they're going to the goods. if you read all the documents, it looks like the allegations are somewhat strong. >> joey jackson, thank you, sir. >> thank you. we are smack in the middle of two major sports events.

it's turned to lava in the kapoho bay. a chunk of black rock. we'll show you more. we're learning that hurricanes around the world are apparently moving more slowly. allison chinchar, what's the significance of that? >> reporter: take, for example, hurricane harvey. we remember the devastating floods of that. the question is, could this become the new normal? we'll talk about that coming up.

3:58 am
kapoho bay. wiped out, filled in by lava that extends a mile into the sea. the usgs says lav even appears to be flowing on to the ocean floor. >> at least 600 islands on the big -- 600 homes on the big island have been destroyed. people evacuated from the leilani estates neighborhood were allowed back in to see what's left. hurricanes and tropical storms around the world, they're moving slowly. this is according to a new study. and there's a big problem with that because there are more potentially deadly effects from a slow mover. >> let's learn about those with allison chinchar in the weather center. typically we think that it's the speed of the wind that kills. tell us more about the speed of the storm. >> yeah, so 70% of the deaths from hurricanes occur from flooding, not from tornadoes or winds making trees fall.
3:59 am
already flooding is a big concern. now as we talk about storms slowing and they are, 10% decrease in forward speed between 1949 and 2016. over land, where you have the biggest impacts, you're noticing that slowing between 20% to 30%. that causes a huge problem in dealing with flooding. for that -- forecast brought to you by green mountain coffee roasters, backed with goodness. let's get more to the point here, okay. when we talk about the forward speed, we're talking about a storm about five miles per hour. you can dump 30-plus inches. a storm moving, say, 15 to 20 miles per hour, most likely the rain is going to be less than ten inches. that's more tolerable especially along the coastlines. we remember hurricane harvey, how it came up houston and into southeast texas and sat there. because of its slow movement, it was able to rain over the same spots over and over again. essentially dumping in some
4:00 am
spots 40, 50, 60 inches of rain. when you talk about the slow speed of the storms, take, for example, a rain gauge. how much would you get in one of the gauges? a fastmoving storm, it comes in and dumps maybe a few inches of rain. most states can tolerate that. when you have a much slower moving storm that can come in and train over the same spots for hours if not days, that's where you end up getting at least a foot of rain if not two or three. >> all right. just starting out this hurricane season. allison chin car, thank you very much. >> thanks. trump sticking up for russia and sticking it to allies. >> russia should be in this meeting. why are we having a meeting without russia being in the meeting? >> why is it that he's so interested in flattering one of the most
