7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking this morning, president trump shakes hands with vladimir putin. the high-stakes meeting comes after tough talk from trump. >> we urge russia to cease its destabilizing activities. as chaos erupts in the streets overnight at the g20 summit. protesters forced back by water cannons and tear gas retaliating by throwing bottles. fires in the streets. more than 70 officers injured as the world's most powerful leaders gather. under attack. the new threat to u.s. nuclear plant, hackers targeting the critical american power grid. the fbi and homeland security on the hunt for the attackers. the fear this morning that a foreign country might be trying to cause a blackout in the u.s. agony on the court.
7:01 am
buckling screaming in pain. fellow players in tears. medical help slow to arrive. carried off the court almost 20 minutes later. what went wrong? blockbuster buzz. this year's money movies are packing theaters. could they grab oscar glory for the first time from "spider-man" to "planet of the apes." >> this is war. we'll find out. and good morning, america. so much breaking news overnight. this morning all eyes on that g20 summit in germany. >> you saw the pat on the back as well. all part of the g20 summit. the leaders are gathered there. climate change and trade on the agenda.
7:02 am
it is getting dangerous. it kept melania from leaving her hotel room. dozens of officers injured and that trump/putin meeting. the first they met since trump took office. maybe the first time ever. cecilia vega joins us from the site. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: that meeting hasn't started yet. it's actually running late. should be under way in just a few minutes. the world has been watching to see this first face-to-face between donald trump and vladimir putin. the president tweeting this morning that there is much to discuss. before their big sit-down, vladimir putin and president trump shaking hands. the president even patting putin on the back.
7:03 am
the president is back 0 tweeting about his old campaign rival going on about hillary clinton's campaign manager john podesta and the dnc e-mail hack. thanking everyone, quote, including the haters for the reviews of yesterday's speech in poland. and taking a dig at the media saying i will fight for its interests, fake news media will never cover me accurately but who cares. this day of meetings with world leaders kicking off with a handshake with germany's angela merkel. the white house bracing for merkel and other leaders to come down hard on the administration for pulling out of the paris climate accords. but it is all eyes on that closed door meeting with putin scheduled to last just 35 minutes. in poland the president offering a hint of the message he hopes to deliver, not about moscow's election meddling but rather russia's role on the world stage. >> we urge russia to cease its destabilizing activities in
7:04 am
ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes including syria and iran. [ chanting ] >> reporter: the kremlin says putin has taken note of the president's message. you can see these protesters are out in full force here this morning. inside that room, though, just a small group of people, the two presidents, their two translators, a small group of diplomats including secretary of state rex tillerson, george, we are told there is no formal agenda. >> it has been a busy morning for the president in hamburg. he met with the mexican president earlier this morning. nafta on the agenda for those two gentlemen. the president was asked at that does he still expect mexico to pay for the wall. you can barely hear him say absolutely. kind of did it under his breath. no word on how he'll get that done and he also met with the french president and he'll meet with president xi of china all amid the big g20 protests still
7:05 am
under way. protesters taking to the streets overnight and their clash with police has left 79 officers injured as we said. the first lady melania trump had to stay inside her hotel. it was too dangerous for her to go out today. abc's james longman is on the scene in hamburg. good morning, james. >> reporter: good morning. we are at one of the large demonstrations here in hamburg for the g20 and as you can see, it's kind of more of a party atmosphere for now. but it was a very different story last night. overnight many violence. setting cars on fire. police using high pressured water cannons to keep them back. watch as police in riot gear move in on the streets. this porsche car dealership looted. tear gas striking the crowds. welcome 2 hell, that's the name of the protest gripping the treats of hamburg this morning. protesters and authorities clashing. bottles and rocks thrown. over 70 police injured.
7:06 am
>> the violence, i kind of feel a pressure right now. >> reporter: anti-capitalist protests always target g20 meetings but this year the stakes are higher than ever as president trump comes to town. this is the main route where leaders arrive. protesters are trying to block it and as you can see the police water truck, they're trying to move people on. up to 100,000 protesters are expected. 20,000 police officers dispatched. more and more people arriving and crowds are getting bigger. if last night was anything to did by there could be more unrest. >> let's talk with martha raddatz. and the editor in chief of "the daily beast." john avlon. welcome to you both. martha, let me begin with you. so the white house saying no set agenda for this meeting. no specific briefing for the president. but what would constitute a successful meeting for the white house? >> well, george, i think a successful meeting would be they
7:07 am
establish a good working relationship going forward with president trump clearly laying out the grievances the u.s. has with russia. you heard some of those in his speech yesterday about ukraine and the support of the assad regime in syria and that putin gets the message that trump is not his friend and that he will remain tough. as for bringing up the hacking, there are certainly those who do not think the meeting will be a success unless he brings it up, george. >> and, john, the president, tough talk in his speech yesterday but in that press conference he seemed to take the putin line on hacking. >> and this is the dichotomy of donald trump, right. scripted donald trump was very tough on russia yesterday in a very well written speech standing up for western values but in private and at press conferences he tends to freelance and fall in line with the putin line and that's going to be the real challenge. in private does he take that tough line? is he consistent about standing up to syria? does he bring up russian hacking or does he default to what we've heard since the campaign. >> yeah, and we saw him freelance in the meeting with the russian foreign minister.
7:08 am
martha, that talk of hacking came to the consternation of american intelligence officials. >> it sure did. i can't stress enough how astonishing it was to hear a president on foreign soil cast doubt on his own intelligence agencies. imagine vladimir putin saying the same things about his own intelligence agencies while at those meetings. this just does not happen. it's humiliating for these american professionals, yes, they have made mistakes but they work every day to help make the country safe, and president trump, of course, seems to believe them when he wants to. he had no problem firing those cruise missiles at syria based on intelligence, nor did he seem to have any doubts about north korea launching what his intelligence agencies told him was an icbm, george. >> and, john, on the broader agenda, the president lined up against most of the g20 leaders on the issues of climate and trade. >> right. yes, and, look, that's inevitable because the president has committed to his domestic base these things that are broadly unpopular within the international community. that's fine.
7:09 am
does he try to bridge it in other ways? does he try to keep american leadership paramount? because right now america can pursue an america first agenda but it needs to also show that doesn't mean america alone and right now that confidence isn't there. he needs to be leader of the free world and assert that kind of leadership but leading from behind doesn't work if you keep avoiding these international agreements. >> john avlon, martha raddatz, thanks very much. amy. >> george, now to some breaking news from overnight. abc news learning that hackers have targeted some of the nation's nuclear power plants, concerns this morning that another country could be involved and abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas has the latest now from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: amy, good morning. fbi and homeland security officials have sent a warning to the nation's nuclear power plants and other utility companies after a series of hacks since may. administration officials tell abc news the hacks targeted corporate computers of a number of companies that run nuclear power plants including the wolf creek nuclear power plant in kansas. wolf creek declined to comment on security issues to us but emphasized there has been no
7:10 am
operational impact on their facility. the real concern is about the motive for these hacks, which in some cases targeted engineers who work at the facilities. the critical question this morning, were they probing looking for a way in to perhaps shut down operations and sabotage these plants or threaten them and blackmail them for cash, amy? >> pierre, we mentioned that u.s. officials believe another country may be behind this. do we know which country we're talking about? >> reporter: sources emphasize it's still early in the investigation. but forensic experts suspect it was a nation involved. some officials suspect the hack may have originated in russia but sources emphasize it's too early for confirmation. >> all right, pierre thomas, we appreciate it. thank you. >> could be another issue for that face-to-face. we'll move on to two scary flight disruptions. a delta flight forced to return to seattle after a passenger attacked a flight attendant. and a passenger making threats on a flight to cuba. abc's aviation correspondent david kerley has that story from reagan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. a very long night for these two groups of passengers and that incident you mentioned that
7:11 am
ended in seattle became quite violent on board. overnight, beijing bound passengers found themselves back in seattle after trouble on board telling cairo tv -- >> and we could see the scuffling going on. one flight attendant ran back and said there was a code 3. serious fight up front. >> reporter: just 45 minutes into the flight, 1 of the 207 passengers on board was walking back and forth to the bathroom in first class and then toward the exit door. passengers also saying that a flight attendant tried to stop the 23-year-old man and was punched. passengers stepping in to subdue the man. >> they broke two bottles of wine on his head. tried to choke him and he just threw me off like a rag doll. >> approaching delta 129 with emergency. we're coming back again. >> reporter: that man taken into custody. a flight attendant and passenger taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening. and at about the same time a canadian airliner with its own incident and an escort.
7:12 am
>> you got a set of two f-15s. >> reporter: the u.s. f-15s escorting the cuban bound jet back to montreal after a passenger was making threats which have not been revealed. he too taken into custody upon landing. now, in the seattle incident that man will be in court later today. amy, the good news is both sets of passengers now on their way to their final destinations. >> that is good news, indeed, david. thanks so much. and some commuters here in new york bracing for delays after a train derailed at busy penn station last night. 180 passengers and crew were evacuated. service was restored early this morning but with lingering delays and this is the third derailment at penn station this year alone prompting amtrak to schedule weeks of emergency track repairs set to begin on monday. and now to that terrible injury at wimbledon. a top american player collapsing on the court and screaming in agony. many are now asking why it took so long to get her the help she desperately needed. abc's t.j. holmes has more on that story. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: robach, good
7:13 am
morning, and we have seen, of course, horrific injuries in sports from time to time. we have never quite heard one like this and in a sport where crowds are told to be quiet there was one deafening sound in this crowd of thousands. this young lady on the ground screaming, help me, help me. it was a hard fought duel between two tough opponents. but in a split second, it all changed. >> help me. help me please. >> reporter: american bethanie mattek-sands grabs her right knee screaming in pain as her challenger watches on helpless. replays show the 32-year-old charging the net when her right knee buckles and she falls to the grass in agony. her opponent climbed over the net and catching a sight of the injured knee immediately calls for a doctor. >> help me. help me. >> i've never seen anything like this and i panicked a little bit as well. tried to comfort her as much as i could but you -- i mean, you could feel the pain.
7:14 am
>> reporter: mattek-sands' doubles partner lucie safarova in tears. the top seeded tennis tandem had been huge favorites to win their fourth straight grand slam title. the stunned crowd watched as the minnesota native was treated by a medical team. her husband justin by her side. the fallen player finally was carried off the court on a stretcher almost 20 minutes after collapsing. >> felt like so long. there are sports where you see something is happening and you see it straightaway. here it took a while so someone has to take the video and actually time and see how long it took for people to get there because for me i think she was too long on the ground. >> reporter: wimbledon officials say they responded within one minute but the player was kept on the court while pain relief was given then a waiting ambulance rushed her to a hospital. now, she is having more tests done on that knee this morning. we might know something in a few hours. but to her
7:15 am
what if this had been some kind of a cardiac arrest where seconds matter in life and death. it took too long for somebody to get out there and could have felt like an eternity because we hear her screaming and that gives you chills about this. we're still waiting to see what happened to that knee but an awful scene. >> it sure was. >> thanks, t.j. >> thank you, t.j. move on to that latest bear scare that happened on a trail in maine when a man trained to run marathons came face-to-face with two black bears. these kinds of encounters appear to be on the rise, and abc'sbc's matt gutman has details. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. we have seen a spike in bear encounters from maine that you mentioned all the way to alaska and california where this perfectly good luxury car got thrashed by a bear. now, most often experts will say do not run from a bear. this marathon runner in maine didn't get the memo. he can run 26 miles in a little over two hours. but nothing could prepare marathon winner moninda marube for the race of his life. against two black bears.
7:16 am
marube was six miles into his morning training run in maine when the bears emerged out of the woods. he panicked doing what runners do and sprinted towards an empty house nearby, but the bears gave chase. within seconds they were right on his heels. >> i was not going to fight them. >> reporter: marube ran up to the porch, slipped inside the screened area and waited until they lost interest. >> they started sniffing the door. >> reporter: nothing but a screen between him and eight bear claws. they eventually moved off. now, running is not recommended for us mortals. as i recently learned, bears can reach speeds of up to 30 miles an hour. >> you never run. never run. >> you never run from a bear. >> no. >> reporter: nationwide officials say bear encounters are on the rise with two people mauled to death in very rare back-to-back attacks in alaska last month. now that bears have shaken off their winter slumber, they're frisky looking for easy calories. >> freakin' bear, get out of my garage.
7:17 am
>> reporter: shamelessly invading homes, foraging garages and raiding garbage cans. this same bear believed to be caught on another home surveillance video raiding the fridge. now, i want to give you guys a sense of how powerful but also how clever these bears are. this car belonged to my boss, our bureau chief. he was in upstate california when a bear helped himself into the car, opened the door, getting into the car and then exploding it. check this out. completely ripping out the paneling. that was a headrest. but one of the scariest things is what it did to the steering wheel. this is hard plastic. it ripped right through it and perhaps adding insult to injury the bear did in the car what it normally does in the woods, guys. >> oh, yeah. yeah. >> and he let himself in so politely. and then -- >> he did but -- >> -- wrecked everything inside. >> reporter: the car still runs. >> incredible. >> reporter: amazingly the car still runs. >> thank you, matt. let's go over to ginger now. a lot of severe weather overnight, ginger. >> yeah, this morning in west

welcome back to "gma" and there you see it. president trump and vladimir putin meeting for the first time there in hamburg, germany at the top of the g20 summit. pulled aside for this meeting meeting right now. the cameras so loud when they walked in the room. all we could hear is president trump saying it's an honor to meet you and president putin saying it's good to meet you talking with their secretary of state and foreign ministers all happening right now in hamburg, germany. we begin with venus williams on the court this morning and wimbledon. and facing a court battle of her own here at home. a judge granting her an emergency order in the civil lawsuit over the deadly car crash she has been held accountable for and abc's gio benitez has been following the story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. this is her 20th wimbledon but it's this legal drama that's making headlines all over the world and this morning we're hearing from both sides.
7:31 am
this morning, venus williams heading back to the court while her attorneys are in court in the escalating legal battle between the tennis superstar and the family of jerome barson. on wednesday a judge granting williams an emergency order of protection stopping the barson family's inspection of her car and downloading of its data arguing she was given less than 24-hour notice for the vehicle to be inspected and was concerned about the unintentional loss of data. overnight the family saying this seems to be an attempt to hide information. >> it seems odd to us that everyone wouldn't want the facts brought forth and brought to light. we and our clients don't understand what anyone gains from continuing to delay this investigation. >> reporter: but according to court documents williams' side says they just want to wait until all parties can be present with their experts. this all stemming from that deadly car accident last month that ultimately killed the 78-year-old barson and severely
7:32 am
injured his wife linda. the police report says it was williams who was at fault for violating the right of way of the other car. while the investigation is ongoing, williams hasn't been ticketed or charged and police say she was not distracted or under the influence. the barson family who is suing williams for wrongful death now also wants access to video from security cameras near the accident site. >> we have sent and filed with the court a notice of subpoena to both the guard gated communities where the footage was taped and to the police department. >> reporter: this latest legal drama caps off an emotional week for the seven-time grand slam champion. after winning her first round match at wimbledon, she broke down at a press conference when asked about that accident. >> really no words to describe like how devastating and -- yeah. i am completely speechless and
7:33 am
it's just -- yeah, i mean, i'm just -- >> reporter: and venus williams cut that press conference short because she was so emotional. meanwhile, about that car, her lawyer told us overnight that the emergency order actually ensures that both sides can properly prepare for the car's inspection so that all evidence is preserved. amy. >> all right, gio, thanks. let's bring in abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams for more on that. dan, what do you make of this emergency order? >> look, i think that it makes total sense, and i think that venus williams is going to win in effect in this case meaning on the order. why? because this is the key piece of evidence. the car. you've got the video and then you've got the car. and knowing exactly how fast it was going, being able to get all the data from the car is critical and so the fact that venus williams' lawyers are saying, wait, we would like to put in place a procedure here before the plaintiffs just go into the car and start extracting information, makes
7:34 am
complete and total sense. >> so, is there any validity and i'm guessing you're going to say to the plaintiffs' lawyer's assertion that this is about hiding evidence, that they're hiding evidence now. >> no, i mean the bottom line is they're all going to get access to the car. they're all going to get access to the data. it's just a question of when and how. and to me that's just sort of playing to the media saying, oh, look at this. they're trying to hide evidence. this is very typical of what happens in a civil lawsuit. >> is it also though about protecting venus in this moment? >> sure, i mean, look, that's the lawyer's job is to protect her, but it's also to protect the evidence from their perspective. look, you got to remember in this case, what you have is a situation where venus williams was turning into an intersection at five miles an hour and the car then strikes her. now, the police have determined that by making that turn into the intersection, that she was at fault. but let's also be clear this is not a situation where we're talking about someone driving 80 miles an hour in a
7:35 am
25-mile-an-hour zone and gets in an accident. so this was a sort of classic accident and determining exactly why it happens is going -- why it happened is going to be critical. >> so how strong do you think this civil suit is? >> well, look, the minute the police say that she was at fault for, that's not a good sign for venus, right. in terms of the civil lawsuit. but when you look at the facts, you look at the fact that she's driving five miles an hour, et cetera, there's definitely going to be a defense here. i would expect this is the kind of case, though, that would settle. it just becomes a question of can they work out a number? >> all right. dan abrams, we appreciate it. thank you. george. >> coming up here, guys, one of america's most notorious crime stories, the murder of fashion icon gianni versace. this morning, inside the mind of a serial killer. of a serial killer.

we're back with a look ahead to tonight's "20/20" on the murder of top fashion designer gianni versace outside his miami home. it has captivated so many for 20 years and john quinones is here with a look inside the mind of the serial killer who committed the crime. good morning. >> good morning, george. for three months in 1997 andrew cunanan sent authorities on a frantic cross country manhunt as he drove state to state killing four people along the way ultimately arriving at gianni versace's doorstep in miami. it was the high society murder that stunned the world. >> gianni versace was murdered in broad daylight this morning.
7:40 am
>> reporter: designer to the stars, gianni versace, gunned down on the steps of his lavish south beach home. >> i think versace had everything that cunanan wanted. he wanted power, fabulous wealth, admiration. >> reporter: andrew cunanan born into a modest household in san diego, the bright 27-year-old worked his way up and floated in some of the world's most elite social circles. >> versace was a wealthy older gay man, exactly the type of person andrew made money off of but i think hated at the same time. >> reporter: but when a relationship with another man ended and cunanan suddenly lost his social status, investigators believe he snapped and went on a cross-country murder spree killing four people along the way. >> the fbi is seeking -- >> andrew cunanan makes the top ten fbi list. you had people in all parts of the country wondering whether andrew cunanan was going to show up at their house.
7:41 am
>> reporter: authorities admit that by now cunanan could be anywhere. >> and you know what he was doing, he was hiding in plain sight. >> reporter: police hot on his trail, cunanan outmaneuvering them at every step eventually landing in south beach where on the morning of july 15th, 1997, versace made his daily trip down to the local cafe to buy his italian newspaper. >> he said, good morning. i said, good morning, you know, and he went up towards his house. >> i didn't know that gianni was out. >> as he's walking up the stairs, what we know now to be andrew cunanan comes up behind him and shoots him twice in the head. >> when we heard bang, bang, i thought it was backfire from the lawn mower that was being worked on. >> oh, my god. there's blood everywhere. please help me. please. >> so i run out the door and gianni was laying there. i check his artery and he was gone. >> reporter: the fashion icon left murdered on his front steps.
7:42 am
and cunanan's motive? >> i believe that andrew cunanan singled out gianni versace to murder because he was jealous of the lifestyle. i think he said i'm going down sometime so i want to go down in history. >> he wanted to be bundy. he wanted to be dahmer. he wanted the recognition he felt he deserved. >> reporter: tonight we'll take you inside the final stages of the manhunt as miami police finally close in on cunanan who had been hiding on a houseboat across from the fontainebleau hotel as then he turns the gun on himself. george. >> so, according to john walsh, he thought he singled out versace but did they have any relationship? >> that's the enduring question and mystery. there are those that say they were very close, that coup and versace had met and he was a houseguest at versace's house. but then there are others who say the two never met. he never met the man who wound up killing him. >> after 20 years still a

7:47 am
summer blockbusters including "wonder woman" and "war for the planet of the apes" are being talked about as possible best picture nominees and that would be unpress defensed for these me megamoneymaking films. chris connelly joins us from los angeles. chris, is this the year? is this the breakthrough year where we're going to see blockbuster flips be nominated for top awards? >> no. anyway -- [ laughter ] >> what? >> let me put -- here's why i'm asking the question. it does seem like we're overcoming what you might call in some people's minds, the soft bigotry of low expectations when it comes to franchise films. and that's thanks to movies like "planet of the apes" film and very much to "wonder woman." i mean people come up to me and talk about "wonder woman" and say the moment when she comes out of the trenches in no man's land, it makes them cry and touches them, moves them in a way and people would like to see the academy reward moments like that, reward pictures that touch them and that are also hugely
7:48 am
successful but what we know is hollywood is sort of two parts. these are big summer blockbusters with big budgets and big expectations and smaller films there come out towards the end of the year that meet the architecture of top ten critics' lists and award shows in the beginning of the year, and those two hollywoods don't mix right now and that's why we probably won't see blockbusters do well. >> the lineup for the end of the year is pretty spectacular, as well. so you don't expect the academy to really be changing their tune? >> well, you know, you can never really tell for sure. you'd like it to change. once upon a time you didn't need hair my color to know that "forrest gump" won best picture or "titanic" won best picture. these were big audience films. could we see that again? it would be nice to see and there's a change in the academy voters this year. a year ago they let in nearly 700 new voters. this year close to 800 new voters. betty white and shailene woodley get to vote this year for the oscars. i don't know if that means they'll be voting for blockbusters, but with the
7:49 am
people voting for oscars we might see a change in the kind of films that do well. >> but i should point out and i know you know this in 2015 a blockbuster was nominated. "mad max," so what was different about that movie? >> well, "mad max" i mean swept the craft awards. "mad max" took everything that wasn't nailed down in the craft awards. it's probably the most underreported oscar story of the millennium. that film was seen as the personal creation of george miller, a wonderful filmmaker, and so we might see it again. remember, the reason why we get more than five best picture nominations now is because "dark knight" didn't get nominated for best picture. they would love to see another movie like that. a big audience picture with great critical response do well enough to get an oscar nomination. could "wonder woman" be that movie this year? there's every chance. i wouldn't rule it out. >> i say yes. >> there we go. i'll vote for it as well, chris, thank you. >> chris is laughing at me. all right, thank you, chris. coming up, silencing the sidelines. the new way to keep out-of-control parents away from

went to it. that big meeting right here in hamburg, germany. now, president trump and vladimir putin, this is, of course, their first face-to-face. the cameras briefly allowed inside. both men looking at each other straight on in the eye during that handshake. president trump expressed some optimism about the meeting. take a listen to what he had to say just a few minutes ago. >> thank you very much. we appreciate it. president putin and i have been discussing various things. i think it's going very well. we've had some very, very good talks. we're going to have a talk now and obviously that will continue. but we look forward to a very positive thing happening for ustuner, for the united states and for everybody concerned and it's an honor to be with you. >> thank you. >> reporter: now putin also briefly spoke saying that he hopes that their meeting would yield positive results today. before the meeting they had an initial handshake. it seemed to be a little more

friendly than this one that was in that very kind of closed setting in that room there. president trump even patting vladimir putin on the back. we are now waiting for word from white house officials about exactly what was said behind closed doors. we know that vladimir putin spent a lot of time, george, preparing for this meeting, studying up on the donald trump playbook. president trump came here with one big briefing binder but nothing specific for vladimir putin, george. >> all right, cecilia, thank you. we hear those police sirens going on. let's check on the protest outside. dozens of police officers have been injured and abc's james longman is in hamburg with the latest on that. good morning. >> reporter: we are right in the middle of the protests for the g20. as you can see a massive police protest, water cannon and armed police moving down because all around us there have been bangers going off as the protest intensifies. last night was a huge night here in hamburg but people are expecting things to get much, much more tense as you can see behind me now, i can see

always the threat of blackmail, extorting these companies for money. >> huge danger. okay, pierre, thanks very much. amy, you have the rest of today's top stories. >> i do. threw there are new developments, george, in the fight to replace obamacare. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell acknowledging his health care bill may not pass and told a crowd in kentucky if that bill fails, he will have no other choice than to draft a more limited bill to shore up the existing insurance markets. meanwhile, dozens of protesters have been arrested protesting the republican health care bill outside senators' offices this week. a federal judge is refusing to limit the scope of the trump administration's travel ban. hawaii's attorney general had asked to exempt grandparents and other relatives of people in the united states from that ban which affects six muslim majority countries, but the judge said the supreme court would have to make that ruling. and there was a new push for diplomacy in the standoff with north korea. south korea's president says he is willing to meet kim jong-un any time at any place. the offer comes days after the north tested an intercontinental ballistic missile. defense secretary james mattis says he does not believe that

8:12 am
sequel to 2015's "creed" and also very clear who his dream villain would be. remember from "rocky 4" ivan drago. stallone writes on instagram, many actually posts about it but this one we loved. history will repeat itself in one form or another. just got to be ready, #creed2, #rockybalboa. the re-emergence of drago would be a one-two punch considering the russian boxer delivered a fatal blow to apollo creed in the 1985 installment making "creed 2" the perfect chance for adonis to avenge his father's death. >> did you write the sequel? >> did i write the sequel? yes, i'm not listed in the credits but i did. sounds good. i mean the first one was great, stallone is fantastic. i think it's a great idea. not sure would we see him in the ring or would we see him as a manager? he's, i think, late 50s now. >> either way -- >> looks like he's in good shape. >> we'll find out. rocky, let us know.
8:13 am
also in movie news before "mean girls" it was "the healthers that" that ruled high school's hierarchy. we loved that movie. now that 1988 film is being adapted to the small screen. why do we think it's looking like a winner? overnight selma blair revealed she signed on for the modern take of this cult classic sharing this photo with the caption referencing a line from the original movie saying, "do i look like stepmother theresa"? i guess so because blair's character is the gold digging stepmother of lead heather duke and blair isn't the only '90s star set for the reboot. shannen doherty who played the original heather is confirmed in a pivotal but still unnamed rule. >> that will be good. >> it's going to be great. >> i've seen that movie like 20 times. >> i did too. i can quote it. we'll discuss. also in the news, every day around here we think is kevin hart day. we love this guy but the city of philadelphia has deemed july 6th the official kevin hart day in honor of the comedian's birthday. the city of brotherly love

8:16 am
daddy's support from the stands. parents behaving badly. si sidelined on courts and fields of all kind. but now the largest youth soccer league in south carolina is saying enough. they're implementing a new rule banning all cheering and jeering at soccer games. >> we just felt as a board that it was time in a leadership way to do something to get people's attention. >> reporter: this memo dubbed silent september sent to the parents of the 30,000 youth players in the league explains that come soccer season this fall, all parents and visitors shall be silent during the game adding just enjoy your player and the game that they love. >> when parents, you know, yell at the referees like that, it makes the kids uncomfortable and make the coaches uncomfortable. >> reporter: according to the south carolina referee association, the number one reason game officials don't return to the field is the sideline behavior of parents and fans. for the parents watching from the stands, the reaction to this was mixed. >> i think it's a great idea. i think it's going to benefit the children as well as the referees. >> i was a little surprised because i'm one of those that enjoys at times coaching from the sidelines and also
8:17 am
encouraging from the sidelines. >> reporter: and as for the players -- >> you should be able to cheer when your kid scores a goal. >> i think it's a good idea because i don't like when my mom screams at me from the sidelines. >> this rule is not telling people you can't be supportive of your child. of course, it's not. it's simply saying to support your child, the best way to do that is to be quiet and let the coach give direction to the kids out on the field. >> all right, guys, this is not a new concept. several leagues around the country have done this for years. a day or two they'll have a silent day. for this league, they put the onus on the coaches to talk to the parents to give them two warnings, if i have to talk to you a third time you're out. if the parent refuses to leave, game is over. >> if your kid scores a goal, you just have to go -- >> that's all can you. >> that's not direction. you can say way to go. >> but they're trying to get parents to think about it. >> warning. >> they're trying to get parents to think about it because some of the behavior is downright abuse. and that is not a good look when you're trying to encourage kids. >> okay. >> thanks, t.j.
8:18 am
>> sorry, george. we're going to turn now to a "gma" health alert. it's how the power of friendship could boost your medical recovery. abc's paula faris sat down with one woman who says her friends kept her alive when she was waiting for a new heart. >> reporter: amy silverstein's failing heart had her counting down the days until her suffering could end. >> i had a big number up on the wall, six day, five days, four days. >> reporter: luckily her deadline came and went thanks to a brand-new heart and an unexpected source of healing. the power of friendship. and now in silverstein's new memoir "my glory was i had such friends," she explains how nine of her closest friends saved her life while she waited for a heart transplant flying across the country to her california hospital room. caring for her, laughing with her, even divvying up time on a spreadsheet making sure she never spent a moment alone. you guys were willing to do pretty much anything to get her through, rubbing her feet.
8:19 am
rubbing her back, massaging her, setting up little spas in the hospital room. >> yes. we improvised. >> and it's a gift for us in a certain way to be able to show up for her. >> did you think that there was a point that she wasn't going to get a heart and you were going to have to say good-bye to your friend? >> that was a very real possibility. >> absolutely. had to reckon with the possibility that we were leaving and we might not see amy again and it might not come through. >> reporter: amy was 50 years old at the time of the transplant in 2014. but this wasn't the first time her heart had failed her. you had your first heart transplant at 25. >> well, it came on very suddenly. i was in law school, and i found it hard to walk to class and went to the doctor, and they found out i was in heart failure. the doctor said that after the transplant if i got an organ, i would live maybe ten years at best. >> reporter: but ten years passed and then 20. amy surpassed all odds by living with her first donor heart for 26 years. and now another three with her second donor heart. >> hi, everyone.
8:20 am
lap 2. >> reporter: able to walk down the hospital hallway just one day after surgery. >> we were at a gathering about a year after this heart transplant, and i looked over and saw amy dancing with like so much color in her face. it stopped me in my tracks and i started to cry. we never could have imagined that she would feel that good, look that good and be the healthiest she'd been in her entire life. >> reporter: amy says of all of her hearts, this one is different. >> i was told that this young girl who i know nothing really about, but she was an athlete and i -- she makes me want to run and i can feel her as i run. >> she gave you new life. >> she gave me new life. i mean, complete -- not just life, but new life, life i never imagined that i would ever feel this well. >> reporter: for "good morning america," paula faris, abc news, new york. >> thanks to paula with that. here with us, senior medical contributor, dr. jen ashton.
8:21 am
what a feel-good story right there. >> absolutely. >> and the medical benefits behind friendship are real. >> yeah, this isn't just touchy feely fluff. data supports people who have strong social connectiveness do better whether that's hands-on healing, hugging, hand holding or just being present with someone. it makes a big difference. >> so many people don't know how to approach someone who is ill. what do you suggest to a friend? >> i think the first key for the person providing that support is don't feel like you have to be on all the time. sometimes the best support you can give is just sitting with a person. i think you should be, you know, creative, think outside the box, if you will. maybe it's bringing a tailgate party inside or bringing a spa inside to someone and, of course, if you're really at a loss, ask the hospital social workers for licensed clinical social workers how to support someone. this is what they do, professionally, for a living so they're a great resource. >> also hard for a lot of patients to accept or ask for help. >> oh, it's so hard and if you're the one receiving that help, i think there are a couple of guidelines. first of all, your rest is key. so, you know, you have to remember when you're getting these visitors, if you're tired
8:22 am
you need to say, look, i need to shut my eyes for a little bit. you have to feed your body as well as your spirit and your soul so when you're visiting with someone and talking, you can literally forget to eat and that's really important. and lastly, you know, don't be afraid to speak un. if you're the one receiving the support, don't feel like you can't say, i know you're trying to help but this is what i need. it's really the communication. it's a two-way path, but it's so important and that was an amazing example of it. >> sure was. jen ashton, thanks very much. >> you bet. >> let's go outside to ginger. >> can you let him in? just a step. thank you so much. oh, my goodness, look at a sea of umbrellas here just waiting on big sean. it is going to be such a great friday. such a good party in the park, especially because we have super fans. hold on, dr. amanda allman, right. >> professor of psychology, city tech in downtown brooklyn. >> by the way, one of the biggest big sean fans. you made your husband wake up. >> yeah, he's a chef and he works very late and i made him come up very early. >> we are so
