7:00 am
good morning, america. the final countdown. donald trump says he is ready to reveal his running mate as the search for his veep plays out like a reality show. >> i'm at three, potentially four, but in my own mind i probably am thinking about two. >> newt gingrich saying it's down to him and governor mike pence. who is packing their bags to join trump on the trail just days before the republican convention. demanding action at the espys. >> it's time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves what are we doing to create change. we all have to do better. >> lebron james leads nba stars in a challenge to the world's greatest athletes, taking on deadly gun violence. >> it has to stop. enough. enough is enough. >> the dramatic moment on one of sports' biggest nights.
7:01 am
on high alert. nasty storms from kansas to new york. this tornado touching down in missouri and flash floods in pennsylvania overnight, emergency rescues, animals struggling to escape rushing waters, now more flooding and hail on the way. ♪ this is what you came for >> battle of the pop stars. taylor swift's ex calling her out publicly after she reveals she wrote part of his song. calvin harris blasts the superstar, saying she's trying to bury him. so, will she be able to shake it off? and good morning, america. what a night at the espys last night. always so much fun. always a huge spectacle. last night something unexpected. something very powerful. >> yeah, it was a powerful moment, indeed. the nba stars taking the stage in the wake of that deadly gun violence and racial tension. we're going to have much more on what they had to say later on. >> that is coming up.
7:02 am
first, we have breaking news the race for the white house, speakers for the republican national convention just released as donald trump's veepstakes draws to a close after one more round of auditions, he is set to make a decision today and appear with his pick tomorrow. the latest from tom llamas. >> reporter: good morning to you. we now have a day and a time for the announcement. trump tweeting it's going to be friday at 11:00 a.m. now all we need is a name. overnight, newt gingrich making his case arguing he and trump are cut from the same cloth because -- and i'm not joking here -- they're both pirates. today could be decision day for donald trump. his search for a running mate now down to two people. >> i'm at three, potentially four, but in my own mind i probably am thinking about two. >> reporter: sources tell abc news, the two finalists are likely newt gingrich and indiana governor mike pence. >> i suspect sometime tomorrow that mike and will both get phone calls, and one of us will be packing our bags to go to new york, and the other one will be
7:03 am
going to watch it on tv. >> reporter: pence may have benefited from a mechanical issue with trump's plane that grounded the candidate in indiana. pence ended up hosting the trump family at his home meeting with the trump children. >> nothing was offered. nothing was accepted but we had a great conversation about the country, challenges facing america, and my firm belief that donald trump is going to provide the kind of leadership that america needs. >> reporter: but the indiana governor shouldn't pick his seat on trump force one just yet. newt gingrich also flew to indiana wednesday to meet with the trump family. newt, breaking down what trump may be considering. >> in many ways donald trump is like a pirate. he's outside the normal system. he gets things done. he's bold. he's actually like a figure out of a movie. and in a lot of ways my entire career has been a little bit like a pirate. do you really want a two-pirate ticket or want to take a very solid guy --
7:04 am
>> reporter: trump who has played by his own rules from the get-go could end up with a surprise pick and he said he's going with his gut on this call. >> i want to pick somebody solid, smart. i'm not looking for an attack dog. >> reporter: as the drama builds around the trump vp search, he's also dealing with yet another court matter. trump demanding $10 million in damages from former campaign adviser sam nunberg saying he violated a nondisclosure agreement by leaking a story to "the new york post" about an alleged screaming match between ex-campaign manager corey lewandowski and a female staffer. trump's camp says the story is untrue. but nunberg claims he wasn't the leak, referring to the matter in his filings as a lover's quarrel. lewandowski nor the campaign are commenting on the case. nunberg is asking the court to drop the matter. we also have the speakers list for the rnc and we know that all of the trump adult children will be speaking along with melania trump, and we'll also be hearing from speaker paul ryan, ted
7:05 am
cruz, governor chris christie and newt gingrich, guys. >> we don't know exactly when. >> we don't know when but he'll be speaking. >> on the list. will he be in the vp slot? >> no pirate patch over the eye, it's just going to be newt. >> good to know, tom. thank you. now to the democrats and hillary clinton's scathing new attack on donald trump saying her opponent is dividing the country and a threat to american democracy. abc's cecilia vega is on the campaign trail in springfield, illinois, good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. it was in this historic building right here behind me that hillary clinton made that case but she said she's part of the problem too, that some of her words have helped fuel division in this country. in the same chamber where abraham lincoln denounced slavery hillary clinton laid out her newest attack. >> this man is the nominee of the party of lincoln. we are watching it become the party of trump. >> reporter: in the old state capitol in springfield, illinois, where lincoln famously said a house divided against itself cannot stand, clinton accused donald trump of dividing the country for this generation.
7:06 am
>> his campaign is as divisive as any we have seen in our lifetimes. it is built on stoking mistrust and pitting american against american. >> reporter: the new attacks come as those polls show a tight race for clinton and trump in battleground states like iowa and ohio and she is now losing ground in florida. her strategy, bring in the reinforcements. clinton hits the campaign trail today with virginia senator tim kaine, rumored to be a potential vp pick, and she is laser focused on hammering trump. >> he said that he understands systemic bias against black people because, and i quote, even against me the system is rigged, unquote. even this, the killing of people is somehow all about him.
7:07 am
>> reporter: and again, clinton has what looks like it could be a vp audition today out there with virginia senator tim kaine. george, her campaign is still vetting possible running mate picks right now. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. let's get more on all this from our political analyst matthew dowd. a lot to get to this morning. matt, let's begin with this veepstakes. pretty transparent process if you take donald trump at his word and he seems to be struggling between his head and his heart. indiana governor mike pence consensus pick of his advisers, it appears, would pacify some conservatives at the convention, solid, safe choice. newt gingrich, a lot more like donald trump, unconventional choice for sure. where do you think he goes? what difference will it make? >> well, george, you and i have watched this for a year. there's no telling where he goes and there's no telling even if it is these two, we think it's these two, but there's no telling.
7:08 am
i thought actually -- i can't let go of newt gingrich's pirate reference. there's so many things i could say about "pirates of the caribbean," on "stranger tides." are they going to call their plane the black pearl? who's captain jack sparrow, who is barbosa, there's no telling in this whole process. my bet, my gut says he goes with mike pence. it seems the safer choice and it seems the choice that will unite the party which is the main goal i think of his vp pick at this point, uniting the party right now. >> he needs to have a good convention next week. we just got this list of speakers released by the rnc. you know, we'll see the trump kids every single night and we'll see donald trump at least once, maybe more than that. you did get the big republican leaders in the house and the senate. but he really needs to find some way to get that bounce out of the convention. it's usually about a four to five-point bounce. >> well, donald trump i think better than anybody and you and i have both been at conventions and around conventions. he understands that a convention is a broadway production. a convention is
7:09 am
about interesting characters with a compelling plot and a driving message. and i think donald trump understands that and i think he's going to produce this convention in a way that he'll probably get maximum bounce but, donald trump's already got, it looks like, some bounce coming into this convention. >> that's right. in fact, there' sa new poll out backs that. cbs and "the new york times" have a new poll showing the national race tied at 40-40. we all know these early polls will bounce around but what's striking about that is the two major candidates both at 40%. that's pretty low. >> absolutely, and i think not only do you see these national polls now converging to even, you've seen all these state polls now converging to very close and within the margin of error. it is an amazing thing that the president of the united states again, we've seen this in the past, could get elected with under 40% and even in this election closer to 40% of the vote. it means a very divided country. >> boy, it sure does. matthew dowd, thanks very much. all right, george, now to the espy awards, the top nba stars -- lebron james, carmelo anthony, chris paul and dwyane
7:10 am
wade -- all taking to the stage at the beginning of the show, issuing a big challenge to go beyond the game and act to end violence and abc's t.j. holmes was there for it all in los angeles. t.j., what an incredible night. >> reporter: it's not what anybody expected, robach. including espn producers. this wasn't the plan. four nba superstars standing side by side and calling out their fellow athletes for not saying enough and doing enough when it comes to gun violence and race in this country. a night to celebrate great athletes started instead with lebron james issuing a direct challenge to them. >> it's time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, what are we doing to create change? >> reporter: lebron, dwyane wade, chris paul and carmelo anthony sieged the stage to address the recent rash of gun violence and heightened racial tension in the country. >> the endless gun violence in places like chicago, dallas, not to mention orlando, it has to stop.
7:11 am
enough. >> let's use this moment as a call to action for all professional athletes. >> reporter: wade later told me they came up with the idea to do this themselves. then asked and got the okay from espn. >> we said, listen, we have to do something. we have a platform, you know, what can we do and perfect time and espys is coming up so, we all wrote our own piece of what we wanted to say and we wanted our voice to be heard. >> you guys ready to have some fun? >> reporter: the show soon after turned to celebration. lebron didn't get to sit much. he won three individual awards including best male athlete. vice president joe biden was there too, he presented the jimmy v perseverance award to craig sager. >> he teaches us how to live with perseverance and passion, fearless, hopeful, together. >> reporter: the longtime nba sideline reporter who's been battling leukemia. >> i will never give up and i will never give in.
7:12 am
i will continue to keep fighting. >> reporter: sager was mobbed by his tnt colleagues after his speech. >> wherever you're from, whatever you think, whatever your politics are, what you can't forget is that every one of those people who dies has a story, this is one of them. >> reporter: one honoree couldn't be there. zaevion dobson, the 15-year-old shot and killed when he tried to shield three girls from bullets. his mother and two brothers accepted the arthur ashe courage award on his behalf. >> now, i urge you to think tonight about why he died and what you can do tomorrow to prevent the next innocent young man or woman from being lost, as well. >> reporter: a celebratory night that struck a serious even somber tone at times. with this lasting message. >> we all have to do better.
7:13 am
>> reporter: yes, this was a celebratory night. a night to honor great athletes. but at the same time, many of the athletes i talked surrounding the show said there was a tone to it that was different and it was necessary. what happened at the top of the show was all anybody was talking about. lebron james said last night on a guys we're honoring muhammad ali we do a disservice to his legacy if we don't speak up more. >> t.j. holmes, thank you so much. >> boy, and that hero zaevion dobson, what a story, what a selfless, selfless act. that should be celebrated. >> it certainly was last night and hopefully it will continue to be so, and the espys touched on the heated national debate over race and policing. as that was happening, a service for philando castile who was killed by an officer in minnesota will be held today and thousands of mourners attending funeral services on wednesday to honor the dallas officers. president obama holding a marathon four-hour meeting at the white house on police and criminal justice reform.
7:14 am
abc's jon karl is at the white house with more on all that. jon, the president meeting with law enforcement and black lives matter activists. tell us what happened. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this was an extraordinary meeting, first of all, as you mentioned, it was long, more than four hours, and the president was there and engaged in the discussion for all of it. it included an extraordinary breadth of people including as you mentioned black lives matter activists, several big city police chiefs, mayors, community leaders. after the meeting was over, the president said that there must be an extended effort to what he said, quote, grind it out to improve relations between police and the communities that they are there to protect. but he said that this is going to be frustratingly slow in the coming weeks and months and we will continue to see more tension between police and their communities. >> the president has been speaking about it all week and gave a two-hour meeting with police with law enforcement on monday.
7:15 am
he gave that powerful speech in dallas on tuesday. and then he will be present at that town hall meeting this evening. this is the top priority for him. >> reporter: absolutely, and we spent an hour and a half with the victims, with the families of the murdered police officers in dallas. i expect that this will be a sustained commitment for the president that goes beyond his presidency. this will be one of his major causes after he leaves the white house. >> all right, jon karl at the white house, thank you so much, jon. and president obama as we just said will join our town hall tonight to discuss the recent tragic shootings and how we can all move forward. you can see "the president and the people" starting at 8:00 p.m., 7:00 central right here on abc. okay, we're going to move on now to those powerful storms from kansas to new york, creating flash floods in pennsylvania, hundreds of thousands without power in missouri. ginger, more is coming. >> almost 400 severe storm reports just in the last 24 hours from florida to wisconsin, kansas to virginia. this may look like a busy game of pokemon go, it is not. it was a very dangerous afternoon in the midwest. torrential rain, and relentless
7:16 am
hail. >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: terrifying winds gusting to more than 80 miles per hour in the midwest. hundreds of thousands without power as trees smash into homes taking out traffic lights. watch as a brief spin-up takes shape in this time-lapse video from st. louis, missouri. in lancaster, pennsylvania, four inches of rain falling in less than two hours. emergency workers rescuing people from their homes. highways shut down in both directions. and the cows, watch as they helplessly bob in the rushing water struggling but finally emerging safe on the other side. and in pensacola, florida, folks on the beach running for cover. three waterspouts swirling over the gulf of mexico. now, you've seen how powerful the storms could be. well, that energy moves to the south today along the southern part of the cold front. if you're driving i-40 or i-35 close to oklahoma city, up to wichita, watch out for dangerous
7:17 am
winds and, of course, hail possible. same thing as we go into the afternoon and evening, parts of new england get into the severe weather threat. i'll have a whole lot more coming up. >> thank you. we're going to move on now to the latest on the zika virus. a new report from the cdc that concludes the upcoming olympic games are unlikely to spread zika worldwide. our dr. richard besser is here with details. this is kind of encouraging news. >> yes, the cdc looked at the numbers and a number of travelers and what they estimate 500,000 people will travel to the games. but, if you look at overall travel to the region that's affected by zika, it represents less than a quarter of 1% of overall travel. so, for most countries including the u.s., it should not increase the risk. >> at the same time we have this report out of texas of a baby born with microcephaly. >> yeah, it's a sad situation. this is what we're trying to prevent. the mom had been in latin america and acquired the infection there. so far the cdc reports 320 pregnant women in the u.s. who are infected with zika. seven so far that have birth defects.
7:18 am
people who are traveling need to take precautions because this is what we're trying to avoid. >> still a danger of spread here in the summer? >> well, it is. we have the mosquito and so they're expecting that some of the travelers will bring it in. that's why they're trying to build up the surveillance. so, they'll be able to defect when it's here to try to knock it out. >> okay, rich besser, thanks very much. you will take questions on twitter. >> all morning long. >> fantastic. back to ginger with more weather. the heat advisories from south carolina up through new jersey an excessive heat warning in philadelphia because we don't get cooler at night. that's a big reason. also the humidity levels. a quick look at what it will feel like this afternoon, the heat really starts going in boston by tomorrow. let's get your local weather in just 30 seconds.

wrote the lyrics is actually a pseudonym for her. but the day the song dropped ryan seacrest asked harris about swift, his then girlfriend. >> will you do a collaboration with your girlfriend? >> we haven't even spoken about it, i can't see it happening. >> reporter: awkward. could that be the reason that weeks later she and harris were splitsville and suddenly there was all that pda with her new beau, actor tom hiddleston. the romance documented from rome to rhode island. the couple even canoodling in the ocean while he wore an "i love t.s." t-shirt. harris took to twitter wednesday to compliment swift's lyrics but then accused swift and her team of going so far out of their way to try and make me look bad adding, i figure if you're happy in your new relationship, you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex-boyfriend down for something to do. ♪ shake it off ♪ shake it off >> reporter: clearly finding it hard to shake it off.

>> oh, i think we ought to take it inside. thanks, david. >> all right. thank you, david. and now to an abc news exclusive. we're going to have the latest now on the tragic death of a navy s.e.a.l. trainee. a san diego medical examiner is labeling his death by drowning a homicide. i sat down with his sister and their family attorney who are speaking out for the first time. james derek lovelace was just one week into his navy s.e.a.l. training when the unthinkable happened. drowning during a swimming exercise. why did he want to become a s.e.a.l. so badly? >> he said i want to defend my country. i want to fight terrorism. he wanted to help this country and make a difference. >> reporter: last wednesday, a medical examiner's report was made public ruling the 21-year-old's may death a homicide, saying while some could consider his death an accident, the actions and the inactions of the instructors and other individuals involved were excessive and directly contributed to the death. you found out that your brother's death was ruled a homicide. >> yes. >> how?
7:35 am
>> by reading the autopsy report on facebook. we had no clue that the autopsy report was going to come out and be shown to the public before the family. >> reporter: navy s.e.a.l. training is considered to be the most rigorous training in the u.s. military. while the report says lovelace was reported to not be a strong swimmer, his family disagrees, saying he sent home letters writing, the pool here is so nice, i love swimming in it. i'd say i'm one of the most fit guys in here. i'd rather die than quit so i know i'm going to make it through. >> i talked to him the day before he passed away. he said he was going through these exercises like nothing, something wasn't done right. >> reporter: while instructors are supposed to create adverse conditions like splashing and yelling, dunking reportedly goes against training regulations. the medical examiner says she and the ncis agent watched
7:36 am
surveillance video showing lovelace struggling and an instructor approaches and dunks him continually splashing him for several minutes as he continues to struggle before dunking him again. >> i think it's fair to say there is a few bad apples and kind of rogue instructors that took it too far and that's really the problem here. >> reporter: according to the report, he was still breathing when he was eventually pulled out of the pool but soon turned unresponsive. >> i think the medical examiners came to their conclusion that the dunking started his initial drowning and from then on, they caused what happened to him ultimately. >> do you believe that you'll be allowed to see that video? >> i believe when the ncis investigation is over we will be. i mean, if not i won't stop until i have my hands on it. >> reporter: while defense officials say the medical examiner's ruling does not mean a crime had been committed the navy tells abc news it is fully cooperating with authorities and remains committed to providing the lovelace family as much support as possible in this difficult time. what does justice look like to you? >> i want to see the instructors
7:37 am
held accountable for their actions. >> reporter: derek's sister lynsi and his girlfriend rachel are starting a campaign justice for derek raising money for boys who want to become s.e.a.l.s to go to crossfit if they can't afford it. derek had intended to propose to rachel with his late mother's wedding ring in june. sadly, he came to such a tragic end there in may but despite what happened to him, the fact that the family wants to encourage other young men to join the s.e.a.l.s is pretty remarkable. that's their support for the military and they know that's what derek would have wanted. >> they do deserve a lot of answers. >> they do. >> okay, amy, thanks very much. coming up, when we come back on our big board, tom brady's big setback. will deflategate now go to the supreme court? road rage revelations, nearly 80% of us admit we get angry behind the wheel. is "game of thrones" set to crush the competition at the emmy, our insiders are back in just two minutes. crush the competition at the emmy, our insiders are back in just two minutes. isn't it time to let the real you shine through?

the bottom line is that, because she comes from the 2nd circuit, yes, she is the justice that will hear this petition but four out of eight of the justices have to agree to take this case so this is a really juicy sports controversy. a legal one, not so much. >> what's his best argument? does he even have a good argument? >> he has an argument that nfl commissioner roger goodell did him wrong. he's saying roger goodell shouldn't have suspended him for four games. he's saying that roger goodell acted outside the scope of the collective bargaining agreement and he didn't give him adequate notice of the rules. he just ignored basic requirements of consistency. he is really, pretty upset with the nfl commish but the supreme court taking deflategate case with all the things that are going on in the world, doubtful. >> don't bet on it, okay, thanks. >> fair enough, sunny. thank you. now to an alarming new report on road rage. the american automobile association revealing this morning that nearly 80% of drivers admit to expressing significant anger behind the wheel at least once in the past
7:42 am
year. dr. elizabeth lombardo, a clinical psychologist, joins us now, and dr. lombardo, i have to say that i'm not surprised by those numbers. we're saying it's outrageous but i actually don't think it is having driven a few times in my life. what do you think why people are so quick to rage when they're behind the wheel? we can all be mild-mannered people and get behind the wheel and change. >> first of all, stress levels are higher than ever. when we're stressed out we tend to personalize other people's behavior, they're insulting me by doing that, couple that with the anonymity of driving, you don't see them face-to-face and a lot of times we give ourselves permission to act more aggressively. >> so, if you feel this coming on and boiling up inside, this is for amy more than anyone, what do you do? >> quick intervention, amy. >> so what tips do you have? >> what you want to do, first is take a deep breath or turn up your music. laugh even if something isn't funny, do something to reduce
7:43 am
your stress. stress is on a continuum from 0 to 10. when we are at a 7 or higher we don't think rationally. that's when we do things that we later regret. so first decrease that stress. and then play the game i call i wonder why. i wonder why they reacted like that. we tend to assume it's because they're being insulting to us but really maybe they're on their way to the hospital because someone's having a baby or maybe they're trying to get away from their in-laws as quickly as possible. when you change your perspective it can change your life. >> put yourself in the other driver's shoes. >> get away from their in-laws as quick as possible, that's hilarious. that's really good advice, by the way. if i'm alone i try to pretend my children are in the car and react differently or hopefully when our children are in the car. >> all right, thank you, dr. lombardo, that was great. now we move on to the emmy nominations. television academy set to announce the nominations later this morning and they'll choose from 8,000 submissions over 100 categories and nick watt joins us from l.a. this morning. hey, nick, you're looking dapper this morning there by the stage.
7:44 am
what kind of story lines are you expecting this morning? >> reporter: well, george, it's going to be all about "game of thrones." that show can become the most decorated drama in emmy history. right now tied with i believe "the west wing" and "hill street blues." last year 24 nominations and 12 wins, but it was not always so. in season one they only won two, that was for the opening title credit and peter dinklage, of course, who will get nominated again this year. probably when he wasn't quite so front and center in this last season but, you know, the cultural impact of this show is immense. i know people who have named their babies khaleesi. >> i mean, i'm a fan but i have never gone that far. and i have to say this season in my opinion the best yet so that will be exciting. big focus is on the limited series category and this is often overlooked category. i just looked at who they're saying may be nominated, and i've seen every
7:45 am
one of these shows. >> you know, in this age of kind of on demand tv viewing, this category has really come to the fore. we have "fargo" this year, "roots," "american crime" on abc, and the frankly overrated "night manager" and o.j. simpson -- "the people v. o.j. simpson," now, this show, they've taken a story -- we know how it ends -- and made it scintillating, fantastic tv and the acting, i mean courtney b. vance, we've got sterling brown, we've got cuba gooding jr., john travolta, sarah paulson and david schwimmer playing the original kardashian. one critic told me if this show does not win, the emmys are broken, broken forever. >> wow, amy, you showed how much you're working. you have all that time on planes to watch all of these shows. >> download them and watch them. it's true. >> i got to put nick on the spot. what's the matter with "night manager"? >> exactly. >> you know, i'm british so i see through this british thing. not everything that british people say is smart, clever or
7:46 am
funny. it's just not true. i see through that show. i love tom hiddleston as much as the next man but i don't love that show. >> you don't love tom hiddleston as much as the next woman because he is nice to look at, too, that's another big perk of the show. just saying. >> taylor swift agrees. thank you, dr. lombardo, thank you, sunny, as well. that was great. coming up, our hot shot of the day. a 7-year-old's invention to keep pokemon go players safe. we'll reveal what it is when we come back in two minutes. come back in two minutes. it is when we come back. on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents.
7:47 am
breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.
