stepping across that line was a great honor. a lot of progress has been made. >> the president makes history crossing into north korea restarting nuclear talks but a deal to curb pyongyang's nuclear program still faces a lot of odds. the kamala harris campaign fighting back about yop line attacks about her race, one of them from the president's son. breaking news.
1:01 am
look at that video. protesters in hong kong tried to storm the legislative building. thousands in the streets to mark 22 years since hong kong's handover from brittain to china. and kevin durant packing his bags for brooklyn, and he's bringing two all stars with him. welcome to our viewers in the united states and now around the world. international, this is correct. >> that's correct. >> i'm michelle kosinski in for christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. 4 a.m. in new york, 5 p.m. in north korea. while most of you are enjoying a summer weekend, there was history at the dmz. the president meeting with north korean dictator kim jong-un becoming the first sitting u.s. president to cross into north korean territory. the two leaders met for nearly an hour agreeing to restart nuclear talks all part of a weekend full of activity that could reshape u.s. relationships in asia.
1:02 am
>> this is my honor. i didn't really expect it. we were in japan for the g20. we came over and said, hey, i'm over here. i want to call chairman kim and we got to meet and stepping across that line was a great honor. a lot of progress has been made. a lot of friendships have been made and this has been a particular great friendship so i just want to thank you. >> a great friendship. the murderous dictator. no doubt, president trump loves the historic optics here. north korean state describing the trump/kim summit as a, quote, amazing event. will it amount to anything other than an amazing photo op. if "the new york times" reporting is correct, it appears the u.s. is going to significantly lower the bar for what they want to accomplish here. >> reporter: well, that's right, dave. "the new york times" is saying that officials are telling them that they are considering going
1:03 am
for the step-by-step approach when it comes to denuclearization. it's something north korea wants. it's something quite frankly that most experts will say is far more realistic which is what they are trying for now, which is complete denuclearization. we have seen that administrations in the past try this and we've seen them fail, but the fact is there is a consensus definitely here in the region that north korea is not going to give up its nuclear weapons just like that. in fact, some say they won't give up their nuclear weapons at all. "the new york times" saying this will be a little bit more of an acceptance of north korea as a nuclear state. simply there does have to be some progress for this to be seen as more than just a handshake diplomacy. listen to what the president has to say at the dmz. >> we want to get it right. we don't want to -- we're not looking for speed, we're looking to get it right. the meantime, there's been no
1:04 am
nuclear tests, there's been no ballistic missiles. there's been a lot of goodwill and there continues to be. maybe if anything, better. after today, better than it was even before. >> reporter: now the president saying that there's no rush. clearly, the president does have a time limit on his term. kim jong-un does not have that concern, so certainly kim jong-un is not feeling that there is that much pressure. this is interesting to see this historic moment, something that south korea and north korea have been heralding as a great step in the right direction. of course, it depends what comes next. potentially working level talks. we heard from president trump saying that they're going to put these teams in place, and within two or three weeks they could be negotiating. this is where they've fallen down after hanoi and after singapore. after hanoi there was no agreement but there had been goodwill between the two leaders. it's when they get to the nitty-gritty that it becomes

very difficult. we'll have to see what the working level talks with bring. >> for the time being a major propaganda win for the north koreans. paula hancocks live for us. thank you. newly minted white house press secretary stephanie grisham an apparent victim. she got into a scuffle with north korean officials outside a meeting room. a source at the scene described it as an all out brawl and said grisham was a bit bruised. several u.s. journalists gave her a nod for assuring the press freedoms. a check on business, a temporary truce in the u.s./china trade war. president trump and chinese president xi jinping agreed to table new tariffs and continue negotiations. he told tucker carlson he's optimistic about a deal with china. >> you just recently, hours ago,
1:06 am
met with the chinese president xi jinping. >> i did. >> are you closer, do you think, after that meeting with a trade deal. >> we had a very good deal. probably the largest deal ever made of any kind, not any trade. we got along very well. we understand each other. >> white house chief economic advisor larry cud low said there's no guarantee that a deal will happen. >> as the president said, continuing the talks which had been interrupted for a while, is a very big deal. no promises. there's no deal made. there's no timetable, i want to emphasize that. >> investors like the news of a temporary truce. wall street futures are positive ahead of the opening bell. something to remember here, existing tariffs on chinese goods are still in place and will continue to hit businesses here. futures are also higher after trump said he would lift some restrictions on chinese tech giant huawei ending a ban on american companies from using huawei telecom gear.
1:07 am
trump said huawei was still part of an ongoing trade talk between washington and beijing. kamala harris's campaign punching back in the face of online attacks about race including one from donald trump jr. reaction to our strong debate performance poured in, harris was unfairly portraying herself as african-american since she's the daughter of an -- it was deleted by a spokesperson. he tells "the new york times" he was just asking if it was true. the harris campaign official dismissing the attack saying, quote, this is the same type of racist attack his father used to attack barack obama. it didn't work then and it won't work now. following the pride march in san francisco sunday, harris was asked if she was surprised by some of the online backlash from the black community? >> we are a nation that has a
1:08 am
lot to be proud of and there are aspects of our history not to be proud of. they have to be dedicated to making sure that there's a history of the race and segregation and that is real. >> not sure you got that. harris's 2020 democratic rivals coming to her defense. cory booker is one. can you read this tweet yourself. you got that? others are weighing in on twitter and on tv. >> the tweet of donald trump jr. was the act of a coward. you see what they do. put something out there and then he deletes it so that he can say it was just a mistake. >> we have a president who is a racist and apparently based on a statement yesterday, his son is following in his footsteps. >> meantime, the harris campaign
1:09 am

for weeks there. this is something we have seen regularly. today does it seem to be reaching some kind of breaking point? >> reporter: michelle, i'm literally at what's become the front line of these protests. look at this glass building here. it is shattered here. if we can bring the camera around. you can see the riot police inside here. the rioters have been spending the last two hours just smashed through here. this is the main government building. you might not be able to see it. dripping off the bottom of the glass is the pepper spray that the police have been using when the protesters break through. what they are protesting for is to have that extradition bill repealed by the chief executive here. they're protesting against what they call brutality by police when millions of them came out
1:16 am
on streets two weeks ago but today this place has become the epicenter and the focus of the last couple of hours of that protest. the police inside have been waiting patiently. they haven't rushed out and charged the protesters here, but every time the protesters look like coming through, they move forward, pepper spray them, pull back. now this glass, this window is breached. this is an incredible situation. a medieval style siege being played out in front of hundreds, dozens at least of hiv cameras, hundreds of other cameras behind the police. you can't emphasize this too much. this is a government building. this would be the equivalent of the white house. this protest only part of a much bigger protest, a peaceful protest that is going through the streets of hong kong. hundreds of thousands of people commemorating the day 22 years ago where the british government
1:17 am
had the sovereignty back to hong kong. this is a day where there's protests every year but there's never been a day like this when protests have been so violent when they have avenue been so close to getting inside of government buildings. >> incredibly dramatic pictures. thanks, nic. a drought in northern iraq has revealed a major discovery. the ruins of an ancient palace nearly 3500 years old. archaeologists say it's from the matani empire. a team also found wall paintings that were probably common at the time but few have survived. ahead, he made this emotional plea just weeks ago. >> the families would love to have time with them and made

1:23 am
remember, this has been going on since december 19th. as we head into july, the people of sudan show no signs that they're going to retreat from their demands for a full and orderly transition to civilian rule. at the moment there are snipers shooting at people. bodies were found in the area. it's attracting attention of people like mr. hunt and the british government who is saying let's stand for the people who are wanting to change the situation in sudan as well as jim mcgovern, representative from massachusetts.
1:24 am
they're falling squarely on the shoulders of the military council. this has been a government that has been in charge since the days of abashia. despite the fact that they left on december 11th, the same men in military fatigues are in charge and the sudanese people have had enough. >> 11:24 in nairo by. lewis alvarez who pleaded a few weeks ago for the extension to the september 11th victim compensation fund died saturday. he was 53. alvarez succumb to complications from cancer due to the time he spent in the rubble at ground zero. >> i have been lucky enough to have 68 rounds of chemo. yeah, you heard me right, 68

nba free agency tips off with a shocker heard around the basketball world.
1:31 am
kevin durant announcing plans to sign with the brooklyn nets. a deal for four years, $164 million. durant played the last three seasons with the golden state warriors winning two titles. he is expected to miss most or all of next season after rupturing his achilles in the nba finals. he will join kyrie irving and dean gray irving. k.d. and kyrie reportedly took less money so the mets could sign deandre jordan. the knicks sought to assure their fans saying they continue to be up beat and confident in their plans to rebuild.

curb pyongyang's nuclear program still faces long odds. breaking news right now. protesters in hong kong smash the front glass of the elective building. thousands in the streets to mark 22 years since hong kong's handover from brittain to china. welcome back to "early start." i'm dave briggs on a breaking news monday around the world. >> a lot going on around the world to start us off. i'm michelle kosinski in for christine romans. while you were enjoying a summer weekend, there was history being made at the dmz. the president meeting north korean leader kim jong-un and he is the first sitting president to cross into north korean territory. the two leaders met for an hour agreeing to restart those nuclear talks. again, it was part of a weekend full of activity that could reshape u.s. relationships in
1:33 am
asia. >> this is my honor. i didn't really expect it. we were in japan for the g20. i came over. i said, hey, i'm over here. i want to call up chairman kim. and we got to meet and stepping across that line was a great honor. a lot of progress has been made. a lot of friendships have been made and this has been in particular a great friendship. i just want to thank you. >> a great friendship with the murder rouse dictator. no doubt president trump loves these historic optics. overnight north korean state media describing the trump/kim dmz event as an amazing event but will it amount to anything beyond a photo op? let's bring in paula hancocks live from the dmz. it would appear if the "new york times" reporting is correct, the u.s. is appearing to significantly lower the bar. good morning. >> reporter: hello, dave. what we're hearing from "the new york times" is the trump administration officials are potentially now looking for a
1:34 am
nuclear freeze as opposed to what they have asked for before, which is complete denuclearization and then they would consider easing some of the sanctions on them. this would be more of a step-by-step process. it would tacitly accept north korea korea. they've gone for freezes of nuclear tests in the past, there has been varying degrees of success but all of those deals have eventually fallen down. we also understand from "the new york times" article that the u.s. administration might be considering the deal that was discussed in hanoi back in february. this was -- north korea would give up its main nuclear producing facility. this is the nuclear research center and that would lead to some sanctions relief. this was rejected by washington back in hanoi saying they wanted some of the undisclosed sights
1:35 am
that they haven't admitted to to be part of the deal as well. very interestingly we did see that when president trump was standing next to the south korean president, the president suggested the deal and the president did not object to that. let's hear what he was saying as well at the dmz. >> we want to get it right. we don't want to -- we're not looking for speed, we're looking to get it right and in the meantime there's been no nuclear tests, there's been no ballistic missiles. there's been a lot of goodwill and there continues to be. maybe if anything, better. after today, better than it was even before. >> reporter: now it is clear there is no need for speed when it comes to kim jong-un. he is not limited to a certain term as leader. his term is, if he has anything to do with it, for life. for president trump it is a very different matter.
1:36 am
>> 5:35 there p.m. near the dmz. paula, thank you. newly minted white house press secretary stephanie gri grisham getting some push back. she got into a kufl outside the meeting room where the two leaders were talking. they described it as a, quote, all out brawl and said grisham was a bit bruised. several u.s. journalists did give her credit for assuring their press freedoms. temporary truce in the u.s./china trade war during the g20. president trump and chinese president xi jinping agreed to table new tariffs and continue negotiations. the president telling fox news he's optimistic about a deal with china. >> you just recently, hours ago, met with the chinese president xi jinping. >> i did. >> are you closer, do you think, after that meeting with a trade deal? >> i think so.
1:37 am
we had a very good meeting. probably the largest deal ever made of any kind, we got along very well. we understand each other. >> white house chief economic advisor larry dud low said there's no guarantee that a deal will happen. >> as the president said, continuing the talks which had been interrupted for a while is a very big deal. no promises, there's no deal made. there's no timetable. i want to emphasize that. >> investors liked the news of a temporary truce. wall street futures are positive. ahead of the opening bell, something to remember. existing goods are still in place and will continue to hit businesses in the united states. futures are also higher after trump said he would lift some restrictions on chinese tech giant huawei ending a ban on american companies from using the telecom gear. huawei will be safe for the end of trade talks between washington and beijing. a tense standoff overnight in hong kong with pro democracy

breaking overnight from hong kong, protesters flooding the streets clashing with police as hong kong marks 22 years since it was formally returned to china. protesters trying to storm the legislative building smashing windows there. that's where our cnn's nic robertson is live right outside that building in hong kong. nic, those were some disturbing pictures. has it calmed down at all since you've been out there? >> reporter: it's calmed down at this location, but it's still very tense. the police inside, let's just look through the windows. this, again, was the front line of the confrontation. just a half an hour to an hour
1:43 am
ago, protesters were smashing through this glass here. would he know from the police this is as far as they'll let us go. we can't go into the building. this is the front line looking through the glass. what it seems to have happened, this intense confrontation involving several hundreds of protesters using trollies full of rocks and metal bars to smash through this thick glass here at the government buildings was, it seems, symbolic, symbolic that they wanted to send a message to the government that they want the extradition bill, this bill they fear that eats away at their democracy here that would send certain fugitives to mainland china for trial. they see this as the tip of the iceberg that would eat away at the democratic values and life that they enjoy here, these young people enjoy here in hong kong, that their parents were enjoyed, their grandparents have enjoyed and ultimately they fear that china may take away from them. this has been very symbolic.
1:44 am
the interesting thing to watch, this intense two hours of conflict here where every time the crowd charged forward and begin to tear through the glass with metal bars, the police came forward with pepper spray. the pepper spray still dripping off the bottom of the glass here. the crowd has now moved on elsewhere. we can hear them chanting and shouting. overall there has been a much bigger protest. hundreds of thousands of people marching through the streets of hong kong remembering the day 22 years ago today now, 1997, when the british government handed over hong kong to the hong kong -- back to the people here in hong kong. that's the day that's been marked today. it was marked by a flag raising ceremony in the morning by the peaceful demonstrations through the day, but it's what's happened here. this violent confrontation. the images that are going to endure and that people are going to remember. >> interesting to see the persistence of the people there.
