5:34 pm
hamburg, protesters delivering a message of their own to the leaders of the world's most powerful countries, you're not welcome here. >> and cecilia vega with us tonight from germany, and let's get back to the pictures. the president has likely been briefed on the scope of these protests, but where do things stand, and do they expect more tomorrow? >> reporter: police here tell us they are bracing for heavy and violent protesting throughout this summit. david, in fact, they are describing heavy rioting taking place here in hamburg. they say the protesters have been trying to get to that summit site. just a couple of miles away from where we are, and they are trying to prevent that from happening. >> in the meantime, you were there today, and the president offering perhaps his strongest words yet on russia, saying, we urge russia to cease its activities in ukraine, and its support on the regime in syria. cecilia, when he was asked about russian meddling in our election on the eve of his big meeting with putin, does he believe it was the russians? here's what he said. >> well, i think it was russia, and i think it could have been other people and other
5:35 pm
countries. it could have been a lot of people interfered. i have said it very simply. i think it very could well have been russia, and it could well have been other countries and i won't be specific, but i think a lot of people interfere. i think it has been happening for a long time. >> so the president said there it could be russia or others. do we know if the president will bring this up in this meeting and who will be in that room? >> reporter: we're told he is not expected to press putin at all on this issue of the meddling in the election. who we know will be in this meeting, secretary of state rex tillerson. on the russian side, foreign minister sergey lavrov, and the two leaders. the very small circle. >> cecilia vega with us from germany tonight. cecilia, thank you. in the meantime, president trump is dealing with yet another threat tonight, and this one, a far greater one. north korea of course, testing that intercontinental ballistic missile. the distance proving that north korea can likely reach the u.s. so what will the u.s. do?

5:37 pm
in the region. defense secretary james mattis today was stressing diplomacy. >> i do not believe this capability in itself brings us closer to war. we are leading with diplomatic and economic efforts. >> reporter: the administration wants help in that from china, but president trump tweeted yesterday, trade between china and north korea grew almost 40% in the first quarter. so much for china working with us. today, ask about that -- >> have you given up on president xi? >> never give up. >> saying he won't give up on china helping out. in the meantime, martha with us live from our washington bureau, and we heard secretary mattis stressing diplomacy, but the president said on the world stage, he is considering pretty severe things in his words. this is a signal the white house and the pentagon both know time is running out. >> reporter: yeah, david. kim jong-un has to be reminded if he escalates this, he could indeed face a military response,
