we are following the breaking news in tokyo. the japanese prime minister shinzo abe and u.s. president donald trump say they discussed north korea, economy issues and many other topics. welcome to viewers here in the united states and around the world. >> they also looked at the stability of the indo pacific region. >> they also announced the two country wilies will cooperate o human space travel. president trump made a special point to call out kim jong-un
during his remarks as well. listen. >> the essence of our approach is peace through strength. this is a strong alliance indeed, the u.s./japan alliance is steadfast and ironclad. we want peace and we want stability. we continue to hope that chairman kim seizes the opportunity to transform his country through denuclearization. it is a country with tremendous economic and other potential. >> prime minister abe says president trump supports his decision to hold candid talks with the north korean leader. take a listen. >> translator: i have to directly see chairman kim face to face without attaching any conditions. i meet him and then frankly and i must have discussion in complete candor.
at the summit talk today to my resolution as such, president trump expressed that he will give all out support. he will spare no efforts in rendering assistance to my efforts. it was a very strong support. >> now, before the news conference, the two leaders and their wives held an emotional meeting with japanese citizens with relatives of those abducted by north korea. >> ivan watson is following this story live at this hour in tokyo. we saw these two leaders on the stage putting forward a show of an alliance that is as described by the u.s. president steadfast and ironclad. mr. shinzo abe describing it as an unshakable bond. beneath the surface there does seem to be some daylight between
the two leaders on the issues of security and on trade. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, this is a very strong alliance. let's put this in a perspective. you've got some 50,000 u.s. troops based in japan. the two leaders will be going to visit a u.s. navy base here in japan on tuesday before president trump departs. that said, they do have differing views on a couple of issues and that came out in this press conference. the japanese prime minister, for instance, saying that north korea's launch on may 9th of two short range ballistic missiles was definitely a violation of united nations security council resolutions. we've heard on saturday the white house's national security advisor john bolton say the same. president trump standing side by side with the japanese prime minister disagreed, saying that those missile launches didn't
bother him, that he believes that the north korean dictator wants to make a deal and sees that there could be tremendous economic future for north korea if it gives up its nuclear weapons. though they disagree on that issue of whether or not united nation's security council violations were violated with those ballistic missile launches on may 9th, the japanese prime minister applauded the u.s. president for his new approach, as he put it, to pyongyang, saying that president trump succeeded in cracking the shell of distrust by meeting now twice face to face with the north korean dictator and also thanked president trump for raising the issue of japanese citizens who were abducted by north korea in those face-to-face negotiations. >> just a bit more on the issue of trade, mr. trump pointing out
that there is new investment in the u.s. coming from japan and he has optimism that u.s. exports will gain ground in that country. >> that's right. and shinzo abe, the japanese prime minister said that in a span of about a month between the last meeting and the current meeting between these two leaders that japanese companied had invested a billion dollars in the u.s. economy. president trump continues to draw attention to what he says is the unfair, as he puts it, trade imbalance between the u.s. and japan, but he expressed optimism that this would be addressed in the coming months in negotiations between the two governments. the u.s. wants to open up japanese markets to u.s. agriculture, for example. japan, for its part, does not want the u.s. to impose tariffs
on japanese exports of auto parts and vehicles to the u.s. we'll just have to see if they can come to some kind of an agreement. what we've heard during the course of this visit here was that president trump has postponed talks of trying to reach some kind of a bilateral trade agreement until after upper house elections are to take place here in july. i see that as a concession to his japanese ally to get the japanese political cycle move forward before perhaps japan will make some concessions or will be asked to make some concessions to try to balance the trade surplus between the world's first and third largest economies. >> ivan watson has been following this and in live in tokyo. thank you. and natasha lindstad is a
professor professor. we just heard from both president trump and prime minister shinzo abe at their joint news conference. both leaders insisting their bond is unshakable and ironclad, but differences clearly persist, particularly on the issue of north korea with mr. trump down playing the recent north korean missile launch. how problematic could this prove to be for their relationship going forward? >> it's hard to say because they did put on a great show. i think both leaders really wanted to show to the world that they have a very strong personal bond and that the u.s./japanese relationship is supposedly stronger than ever. they were very careful to highlight the areas of cooperation, the fact that the u.s. would be receiving a lot of foreign direct investment from japan, that the japanese would be buying a lot of military
equipment from the u.s., and in turn that the u.s. would put more of a focus, at least going more directly with the north koreans about the abduction of japanese citizens. but it was also clear from this press conference that there were cracks, that there were issues. they really were not on the same page about how to deal with north korea. and as the report already mentioned, they were talking about the fact that the japanese see this as a clear violation of the u.n. security council resolution and trump sort of dismissed it as this really isn't very important. but the japanese prime minister was very clear to keep pointing out that he thinks that trump's strategy, his new tact might work, but i think he's just trying to apply a little bit more pressure on trump to not be duped by north korea and really be easily pushed by the north
korean dictator in thinking that their personal relationship is really more important than some of these really important security issues. >> he's very careful there, though, isn't he, the japanese leader. it's a delicate issue for him not to push mr. trump too far. we saw the two leaders meeting with the families of japanese nationals abducted by north korea. japan sees this as the most important issue for the abe government. what role might mr. trump be able to play in this despite the fact that when it comes too these missile haunches, they have very different views? >> i think the missile launching is really, really important still to the north korea regime, to maintain its own internal stability. the north korean leader needs to
prove to his countrymen that he's willing to take a strong stance against the world and that he is not being affected by international pressure. but possibly the issue of the abductions is something where trump might be able to make some inroa inroads. he was able to return the body of otto warmbier. there's a chance that they're going to be able to make some improvements in that area because there is this personal relationship. thus far, trump hasn't really been able to do much in terms of getting kim jong-un to stop some of this missile testing. >> we'll leave it there. thank you so much for your analysis. we do appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. in other news, voters send a message to europe's centrist parties. they lose some ground at the
ballot box with results showing fragments european parliament. and the race to replace british prime minister theresa may is heating up. with brexit looming, a number of conservatives say they are up for the challenge of a lifetime. we'll take a look at who the front runner might be. the russells travel to a different swim meet every saturday. but now... it's thursday. good thing they discovered gain flings. the only detergent with concentrated gain, oxi boost, and febreze odor remover. smelling is believing. and gain flings can hiya karate stink too. try new improved gain flings. and if you love gain flings... you gotta try the dish soap!!!

talk to your doctor about chantix. the votes are in for the biggest multicountry election in the world. more than 100 million people from 28 european countries have chosen representatives to the european parliament. >> europe's centrist parties lost ground in the european parliament elections. nationalists made strong gains in come countries, but overall europe's populist seems to have stalled. >> voter turnout was the highest it's been in 25 years at 50.5%. green parties picked up votes across europe, finishing second in germany. >> italy's anti-immigrant league was leading the italian vote.
after speaking with france's nationalist's marine la pen and victor orban, salvini said the vote was to try to change europe. nigel farrage's new brexit party came out on top. >> the scores you've seen for the brexit party today will be repeated in a general election and we are getting ready for it. thank you. >> and greece's leftist prime minister called snap elections for next month after a resounding defeat. years of declining voter turnout came to an end signaling a renewed interest in european union policies.
>> reporter: big headlines here at the european parliament election center was voter turnout. voter turnout came in at a whopping 50.5%, an 8% gain on voter turnout from 2014 and the first time in the history of these elections that voter turnout actually increased. they've been on a steady decline since the elections first happened in 1979. it was a figure i can tell you that will leave many eu officials pleased. vo low voter turnout long been seen as a signal of voter apathy. this showing that europeans are more enthusiastic about these elections. the so-called grand coalition surprised of center right, center left parties for the first time lost its majority. to put this in perspective,
between 2014 and 2019, 74% of the legislation that made its way through european parliament was passed because of the grand coalition. well, that coalition is grand no more. now those parties are going to have to be looking at smaller groupings for some sort of coalition to be able to pass legislation. we've seen big gains from the liberals grouping. we've also seen gains by the euro skeptics. strong gains in some areas, but overall this is very much a pro european european parliament. now for perspective, let's bring in cnn's european affair's commentator dominick thomas. good to have you. >> thank you. >> despite the gains in far right in populist parties, it is still a pro european european
parliament. what is your sense of the european project? >> well, i think the european project is in a healthy situation. if you just look back to five years ago, all the things that have happened and have transformed the conversation about europe, the migrant crisis had not happened, the brexit referendum had not taken place and president trump himself had not been elected. all of those factors, including the critique of the european union by president trump, has led to a greater mobilization and conversation about what europe does. the brexit saga continues. i think the european union has come away from this looking rather reasonable compared to the discussions that took place across the channel. i think that even though the far right parties, the populists have been so much part of the conversation, what we see ultimately is a shift towards better representation in the european parliament, including the greens, the liberals and so
on, which breaks this 40-year grand coalition. so in many ways the european union is catching up with what's been going on for the last five years in the european countries throughout the union where elections have returned coalition governments, a proliferation of smaller political parties and has also seen mainstream parties become weaker and weaker. all in all, i think it's a good thing for european. >> emanuel macron did see marine la pen gain ground in france. >> you're absolutely right. with marine la pen, the situation is interesting. yet again, back in 2014, the party has changed its name. it came first once again. but it's still a party that is only scoring somewhere around 25%. and i think with all that's been going on in france with the yellow jackets and the
widespread opposition to emanuel macron's policies, when the dust settles, i think that all in all he performed rather well. there is opposition in the form of marine la pen but there's no other major political group that emerged from these elections that threatens emanuel macron's project for greater european integration. all in all i think he will interpret this as a relative ll favorable outcome. >> what are some of the topics that will define the eu moving ahead? >> well, it's clear that the way that the greens performed, not just in germany but in france as well means that the european union must take very seriously the question of climate and global warming and so on. this is an issue that has been discussed for a long time in europe. we're beginning to see a younger generation increasingly
mobilized around these particular questions. so that's something it's going to have to take into consideration. it also cannot ignore the role that the far right and the appeal of the far right in different countries. now, these are not united groups. the situation in italy is not the same as the brexit of britain nor the situation in france. but the fact remains that the european union has to find a way to deal with some of the grievances and some of the ways in which these populist and far right parties have been able to appeal to the european union. the fact that they will be forced now to engage in discussions and negotiations as they legislate on every single issue and only improve the situation in the european union that is often criticized from being distant and aloof and way too controlling. and in many ways, the grand coalition perpetuated that perception of the european union. >> dominick thomas, thank you.
>> thank you. well, british prime minister theresa may will step down as her party's leader next week. so far eight members of her conservative party have announced their bids to succeed her as prime minister. and the winner will shape the future of brexit. >> that's right. several candidates are in favor of leaving the eu with or without a brexit deal. a hard brexit like the former foreign secretary boris johnson who is considered the front runner. but others say they won't consider brexit without a deal in place. >> cnn's phil black is in london right out the front of 10 downing street. he joins us live. so eight conservatives lining up to replace theresa may with boris johnson in the lead for now at least. what's the latest on this leadership battle and the challenges that still exist with brexit and where that might go? >> reporter: well, i think the
results are going to be key in shaping the coming leadership contest for the conservative party, because they performed appallingly. it was a historically terrible election result for the conservative party in these european parliamentary elections. they came in at fifth place. now, this was a hit that many in the party saw coming. it was one of the reasons why theresa may was essentially ousted as leader last week, why so many within the party decided it was time for her to go and theresa may finally accepted that fact. what it means is that in this coming contest you are likely to see something of an effort by all the candidates to prove that they walk and talk the toughest when it comes to brexit, that they are going to be toughest when dealing with the european union in perhaps trying to secure a better exit deal or they are willing to accept even enthusiastically embrace the
possibility of walking away from the european union without any deal in place when that next brexit deadline kicks in, which is the end of october. you're already seeing that in the contest and you're already seeing over the course of the weekend more of these leading candidates going out of their way to prove that they are willing to show that they are toughest on this subject, because as the european parliamentary election results show, well, they fear, in the word of jeremy hunt, that this is now an existential threat for the conservative party, at least when it comes to domestic publics, because they fear and perhaps rightly so that should those same results in the parliamentary election reoccur in a general election here, well, the party could be wiped out entirely. >> so how might the opposition leader jeremy corbyn play into this leadership battle within the conservative party and of course the challenges that
brexit poses, because the labour party does not want to see a hard exit from the european union, does it? >> reporter: it does not want to see a hard exit from the european union, does want a general election in this country as soon as possible. they have done for a long time because they can sniff the potential for victory, but labour is also a party that is somewhat in crisis over brexit, especially following its results in the european parliamentary elections. it too was punished by voters. it too performed much more poorly than it has historically and it is seen as punishment by voters because labor has tried to maintain a let's try and please everybody policy.
the view of that membership is very much pro european. you can expect to see a lot of debate over its brexit policy. there has already been something of a fracturing overnight as these european parliamentary results come in. >> we'll be watching very closely to see what happens here with brexit and of course the leadership of the conservative party. our phil black out in front of 10 downing street ringing inbr the latest. here in the united states deadly weather hitting the midwest part of the country. a tornado destroys everything in its path, touching down in oklahoma.

kwab . welcome back. you're watching cnn newsroom live in atlanta. >> the far right gains were not as large as expected. pro european parties will hold the majority there. voter turnout was the highest in 25 years. >> iran's foreign minister says iran has proposed signing a non-aggression pact with its neighboring gulf countries. that's according to iran's state
run news agency. the comments follow a meeting with his counterpart in baghdad and come after weeks of rising tensions between iran and the u.s. >> we've been following live events here on the show. in tokyo, japan, prime minister shinzo abe and u.s. president trump met and they say they discussed north korea, economic relations and the stability of the indo pacific region during their bilateral summit talks. they also announced their two countries will cooperate on human space travel and work to bring home japanese citizens abducted by north korea. an alliance between the
united states and japan, but again the issues of trade and security, there was some daylight that seemed to be apparent. >> yeah. let's be honest. the united states and japan have had a very close relationship, an alliance for many decades now. as we discussed some days ago, the issues of trade and national security were always going to dominate this trip. when you look at issues to do with north korea, for example, and the suggestion that donald trump is in some disagreement with perhaps john bolton and the united states' position with regard to issues to do with missile testing, there's clearly some daylight there. i think it was notable that the president was asked about that as he left the room and seemed to indicate that there was no disagreement, which of course seems to be a complete contradiction. you have to say i think the white house will be very pleased with the way this trip is going.
the optics look very good. >> let's talk about that. from the japanese perspective, we did see the japanese prime minister roll out the red carpet here. would you say this really worked well for japan? >> well, so far you have to say that again from both sides, from the japanese and the american point of view, this looks like a very well organized, orchestrated trip. i think what you've seen is a clear recognition by the japanese leadership that personal flattery works very well with this president. that shouldn't be any great surprise. the way in which donald trump has conducted himself in many ways is not dissimilar from how it is that many american presidents have acted in the past. when they find themselves under attack ot home, that home, they
overseas and are welcomed as statesmen. >> two other issues i'd like to bring to the fore. so the two leaders spoke about the trade war happening between the united states and japan saying that is affecting japan. they also spoke -- mr. trump pointed out that japan has a relationship with iran and perhaps japan could play a role in helping to ease the tensions between the u.s. and iran. >> yes. it's interesting. it was only it seems like
yesterday that of course the united states had very grave concerns about the japanese penetration of the american market. now of course those concerns have been switched to china. the extent to which the united states really wants to get a good trade balance with both nations. that's going to be very, very difficult to achieve, i think. donald trump is finding that it's a lot easier to walk away from agreed upon trade deals, as that was agreed by barack obama for example than it is to strike new deals. we've heard there are going to be delays with regard to that, with regard to the japanese domestic political calendar. if indeed japan can come around and play a role with regard to helping negotiate a deal with the iranians -- and it's notable that donald trump specifically said they weren't seeking regime change in tehran, then that i think would be a very positive step forward in that part of the
world. >> thank you. a powerful earthquake that rattled the nation of peru has left behind a trail of destruction. the magnitude 8.0 earthquake damaged roads, houses and other buildings. >> at least one person died, 11 others injured across the country. in neighboring ecuador another seven people were hurt. officials there are still evaluating the damage. more destructive weather hit the midwestern part of the united states. >> many people hear in this oklahoma community still dealing with the aftermath of a deadly tornado that ripped through in a matter of minutes. there are two places in particular that were really
destroyed. one, a mobile home park. the tornado was so strong it lifted up entire trailers and sla slammed them back on the ground. at least two people killed there. the other images come from a hotel. really there's no other word to describe it other than decimated. there are people that survived that, were inside that hotel when the tornado came through. we spoke to one of them, who told us he went to bed the night before and then a little bit later in the evening he woke up when his windows were rattling. they shattered, so he dove under the bed. a few minutes later the entire roof came crashing bed. he said if it weren't for the bed providing support, he would have been completely crushed. he was able to crawl out of that rubble and into the pitch black darkness until emergency responders arrived. we got more details about this tornado over the course of
sunday. the national weather service saying this was classified as an ef 3 tornado. it was on the ground for just a matter of four minutes. this didn't just happen in a sa vacuum. it comes in a week where we have seen deadly tornados, high flood waters and high water rescues including here. the mayor told us they conducted about 46 high water rescues just days ago. here we are days later on the scene of a deadly tornado. we want to go to our meteorologist now. karen mcginnes joins us with more. >> an ef-3 tornado is stronger
than what you would get in most hurricanes. only about 5% of all tornados ever register at ef 3. we have seen quite a number of tornados right smack across the nation's midsection, typically thought of as tornado alley. more than 260 tornados reported in just the past 11 days. right across the united states for the entire year, we typically see about 1,000 to about 1200 tornados. but in this particular instance an ef3 tornado over central sections of oklahoma. this area of low pressure is going to lift north. as it hidoes lift, we'll start see the risk of tornadic activity in the lower great lakes and nebraska. we've got another round of severe weather as an area of low
pressure ejects out of the rockies into the central plains again. that return flow of warm, most, unstable air. we've got a jet stream. also we've got that cooler, drier air behind it and the prime ingredients for tornadic activity to develop once again. severe storms in the forecast with a very dynamic system that is keeping things going over the next couple of days. a ridge of high pressure over the southeastern united states is producing record setting temperatures like we haven't seen in quite some time. we go from chicago to indianapolis, this on memorial day. if you had picnic manplans, certainly the potential for tornadic activity, also into nebraska. we've got millions of people expected to see that risk of tornados, high winds and hail. then going into tuesday it's just a little bit further
towards the east. we're looking all the way from des moines to st. louis, oklahoma city, central texas. this is the latest radar imagery. lots of violent winds reported. some of the highest wind gusts we've seen. wichita has seen staggering rainfall totals, about 11 inches of rainfall just for the month. now we go downstream. in the arkansas river, we go from oklahoma into arkansas. look what happens. going into tuesday overnight and then into wednesday we could see epic flooding. they're saying the army corps of engineers are checking out the levees. they're sending in troops to make sure that everything remains peaceful here as those water levels continue to rise. but it looks like late tuesday into wed we could see the river
rise in van buren and little rock. they're saying they think that the levees are going to be able to hold it back but they're looking at 3-5 inches of rainfall over the next couple of days. >> i'm reminded of the tornado outbreak of 2013. the -- we're seeing the same type of pattern play out again. well, president trump is under pressure to pardon a u.s. navy seal accused of war crimes. we lo we were scrapers. yeah... our dishes never got clean the first time, so we did what we had to do.
. it is memorial day here in the united states, the holiday honoring fallen u.s. troops. >> president trump is said to have considered marking the day by pardoning a u.s. navy seal accused of war crimes. >> reporter: field chief eddie gallagher, war hero held in shackles unfairly, or war criminal, premeditated murderer, facing the punishment he deserved? president trump was reportedly considering a pretrial memorial day pardon for gallagher. >> it's a little bit controversial. it's very possible that i'll let the trials go on and i'll make my decision after the trial. >> reporter: gallagher's court martial is scheduled to begin june 10th. in 2017 stationed in mosul he shot civilians, stabbed a
wounded isis fighter to death. gallagher denied all wrongdoing. >> how do you explain the texts he sent? >> it's a joke. >> a funny joke? >> to guys on the seal teams, yeah. it's dark humor. >> reporter: some suggest the president is feeling pressure to pardon from tv hosts, perhaps each his own lawyer all of whom have rallied around this navy seal. >> including the murder of an isis dirt bag. >> your message to navy leadership to the president to those that have the power to review this case? >> well, something needs to be done. >> reporter: a person familiar with the conversation tells cnn
he also privately petitioned the president to issue a pardon. >> i didn't ask him. if he's doing that, i don't have a problem with it. >> reporter: he was nothing to do with you getting involved in this case? >> no, he was not. i was recommended to this case by commissioner keric. >> the source tells cnn keric also recruited mark mckccasey t the case. >> you want to make a motion on that? >> reporter: gallagher's wife who's been campaigning on capitol hill for help says she didn't know about the connections to trump when they joined the defense. >> had nothing to do with presidential intervention or pardons. it is coincidental at most. >> reporter: gallagher's lawyer claims none of these people have spoken to the president about
the case. >> if the president chooses to act, it will be on his own. we haven't had any communications. >> reporter: but we know the president watches fox where gallagher has been defended repeatedly. shortly after that comment the president tweeted eddie gallagher will soon be moved to less restrikconfinement. gallagher was moved hours hater. now trump is considering a pardon. >> we don't want a president to just turn on the tv, think something's a good idea. >> we'll be right back after the break. that is. losing your hair is no fun and no one wants to be bald but there is hope. getting my hair back was the best thing that ever happened to me. i'm happy with the way i look now. i'm very excited about my hair. i feel beautiful. i love my hair.
