shop. they will have exclusive pairs good morning, america. breaking news. president trump and kim jong-un make history. >> we will have a terrific relationship, i have no doubt. >> a stunning moment on the world stage as the once fierce enemies meet face-to-face for the first time. extraordinary images as they sign this high-stakes agreement. the north korean dictator who's boasted of weapons that could reach the united states, now commits to complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula and promises the world will see a major change. >> now this morning the first interview with president trump. just hours after that historic meeting, sitting down with george. >> we've done something that we're very proud of. >> but can the president really trust kim jong-un? >> kim is a brutal dictator. how do you trust a killer like that? >> does the president have any concerns striking a deal with this young dictator?
7:01 am
>> will i come back in a year and you'll be interviewing and i'll say, gee, i made a mistake? that's always possible. and only on "gma" this morning, former nba star dennis rodman, the only man to personally know kim jong-un and president trump, right here on "gma," and the reaction around the globe to this extraordinary moment. a special edition of "good morning america" starts now. and we do say good morning, america. it is great to have you with us on this tuesday morning and an historic morning. the first meeting between an american president and a leader of north korea. you see george there in singapore leading our coverage for abc news speaking with the president just moments ago and, george, there were so many extraordinary moments. >> reporter: surreal is the word for it, robin. and that is exactly the word that kim jong-un himself used calling it like a d ahisticand
7:02 am
prident trump d kim jong-un. hard to believe that just a few months ago they were calling each other names, threatening each other with nuclear annihilation. >> it really is hard to believe, george. the two, they're sitting down and they sat down together. they signed that agreement overnight, and before that, president trump showing kim jong-un his limousine called the beast. the two spending nearly five hours together. >> and just moments ago president trump taking off from singapore, heading back to the united states, and as we said before he left, george, you sat down with him for that exclusive interview. >> reporter: amy, right in the room where it all happened, right before that table where they signed the agreement, the president bounded into the room saying he had been up for 24 hours straight. and i'm here with our chief white house correspondent jon karl. jon, what a 24 hours it has been.
7:03 am
>> george, an incredible series of images, incredible moments, things that would not have seemed imaginable until you actually saw them take place and the president seemed to relish every minute of it. clearly sees this as the defining moment of his presidency. president trump and kim jong-un emerged from their summit looking like old friends. >> what surprised you the most about chairman kim? >> great personality. very smart. good combination. >> reporter: the president who once slammed kim as little rocket man hailed him today as a great talent and a worthy negotiator. >> will be you meeting again, sir? >> will you be seeing each other again soon. >> we'll meet many times, thank you very much, everybody. >> reporter: a remarkable turn from the nuclear brinksmanship from weeks ago, trump and kim making what might prove to be a momentous step towards peace. both leaders signed a joint document committing to work towards, quote, complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. president trump holding up those signatures for the world to see.
7:04 am
kim jong-un said they decided to behinat the worl see morhange. >> mr. president, did he agree to denuclearize, sir? >> we're starting that process very quickly. very, very quickly. absolutely. >> reporter: but the agreement is short on specifics, like whether the denuclearization will be verifiable and irreversible and it comes with significant concessions from the president, guaranteeing kim's security even vowing to end joint military exercises with south korea. and the agreement includes no mention of human rights. whatever the ultimate outcome, history was made with that first handshake. >> it's my great honor. >> reporter: at first stern faces before the cameras, those turned to smiles and even laughter. kim even noting the surrealness of the moment. many people in the world will think of this as from a science fiction movie, he said. >> it will be tremendously successful and it's my honor,
7:05 am
and we will have a terrific relationship, i have no doubt. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: it was not an easy path here, kim said, but we've overcome everything and come to this place. for the north koreans it meant putting aside their disgust with u.s. national security adviser john bolton, a man they once called human scum. bolton was seated across the north korean delegation during the lunch. the president attempting to lighten the mood with a joke. >> getting a good picture, everybody, so we look nice and handsome and thin? perfect? >> reporter: the president even gave kim a look inside his armored cadillac known as the beast. thrust into the spotlight kim smiled and played along but was cautious and reserved. >> mr. president, will you invite chairman kim to the white house? >> absolutely, i will. >> mr. kim, would you like to come to washington? >> thank you. thank you, everybody.

7:06 am
>> reporter: there are so many details to be worked out, particularly, george, on the issue of denuclearization. the president couldn't even say today how long this process would take but he did say he has directed his secretary of state, mike pompeo, and his national security adviser, john bolton, to begin the process of talking to -- to following up on this with the north koreans next week. >> right, this is just the beginning. as you say, north korea has not followed through on past agreements. we also didn't hear all that much from kim today but the president was eager to talk and we sat down right after they signed that agreement. >> we saw you sign the agreement right in this room. you also said you developed a special bond. describe that bond. >> well, it's been a very intense day. and as you know, we discussed things over the last few months. >> you did? you've spoken with him before? >> i have spoken, yes, to him and a lot of his people. as you know, i would say his
7:07 am
very top person was at the white house last week, and so we've developed a pretty good relationship in terms of getting something done. it got done. i think it's a terrific document. it's a starter but it's a terrific document and there are things we negotiated after that document that are very important. >> like what? >> we're going to get rid of certain ballistic missile sites and other things and we're going to put that out later, but we have the framework of getting ready to denuclearize north korea. >> the phrase is complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. does that mean that the nuclear umbrella that we have over south korea is on the table for negotiations? >> no. that means that they're going to get rid of their nuclear weapons. we never discussed the other. they're going to get rid of their nuclear weapons, george, and i think they want to do it relatively quickly. but we'll see. they'll start working on it immediately. we'll work with south korea and work with japan and work with china. but it really has been an incredible exercise -- >> you've set the bar for
7:08 am
nuclear agreements by criticizing the iran nuclear deal, said it's the worst deal ever made. >> terrible deal. >> does that mean that any deal with north korea has to be tougher than the iran deal? >> i don't think a deal could be softer. first of all, we're not paying $150 billion, okay? we're paying nothing from that standpoint other than you will see what happens. i think there will be a great partnership with japan and with south korea, president moon has been terrific. >> but they have to get -- >> prime minister abe has been terrific. >> but they have to get rid of all their nuclear weapons. >> they will, i think they will. i really believe that he will. i've gotten to -- >> did he tell you that? >> yeah, sure. he's de-nuking the whole place and he's going to start very quickly. i think he's going to start now. they'll be announcing things over the next few days talking about other missile sites because there were, as you know, they were sending out a lot of missiles. there was a ri y weses another missile went up. they're going to be getting rid of sites. >> is he going to stop testing? >> he's going to stop testing. well, he already has.
7:09 am
we have how many months has it been, george, seven, where there's been no missiles going up. >> he's committed to not starting that up again? >> he's committed to not do that. it won't be happening. that won't be happening. he means it. he really wants to do something, i think, terrific for their country and it's the only way it can be. >> how long is it going to take? >> well, you know, if you look at -- if you talk to the experts you can't just do it immediately. >> some say 15 years. >> well, somebody said 15 years if you go rapidly, but when you're in a process of doing it you're really dismantling. in other words, you can't do anything during that period of time but they have a process for getting rid of nukes that does take -- it's not like we'll get rid of them tomorrow. it just can't be done scientifically. but they'll do it. they'll start immediately. they've really already started. they blew up a site which was the real deal site. that was their big site. they've blown it up. they're getting rid of things that haven't been mentioned in
7:10 am
the document. they're getting rid of certain missile areas and they're not going to be sending missiles up. >> they're going to announce that and confirm it as well, these additional steps? >> say it? >> the north koreans are going to announce these additional steps. >> they'll announce them very shortly. they might have announced them already. this came after we signed we agreed to that also and i'm doing something that i've wanted to do from the beginning. we stopped playing those war games that cost us a fortune. we're spending a fortune every number of months we're doing war games with south korea and i said, what's this costing? we're flying planes in from guam. we're bombing empty mountains for practice and i said, i want to stop that and i will stop that and i think it's very provocative especially, george, since we're getting along. >> did you talk about pulling troops out? >> excuse me? >> did you talk about pulling troops out, u.s. troops out? >> we didn't discuss that, no. but we're not going to play the war games. you know, i wanted to stop the war games. i thought they were very
7:11 am
provocative but i also think they're very expensive. we're running the country properly. i think they're expensive to do it. we have to fly planes in from guam, that's 6 1/2 hours away. big bombers and everything else. i said, who is paying for this? i mean who pays -- in order to practice. >> what other kinds of security -- >> one of the things that i suggested and i want to do is we're going to stop the war games unless for some reason we're unable to go further. >> what other kinds of security guarantees did you offer? did you put on the table. >> we've given him -- i don't want to talk about it specifically but we've given him -- he's going to be happy. his country does love him. his people, you see, the fervor, they have a great fervor. they're going to put it together and i think they're going to end up with a very strong country and a country which has people that has people -- they're so hardworking, so industrious. if you look at south korea someday maybe in the not too distant future it will be something -- >> you say his people love him. just a few months ago you accused him of starving his people. and listen, here's the rub. kim is a brutal dictator. he runs a police state, forced
7:12 am
starvation, labor camps. he's assassinated members of his own family. how do you trust a killer like that? >> george, i'm given what i'm given, okay. i mean, this is what we have and this is where we are and i can only tell you from my experience and i met him, i've spoken with him and i've met him and this was, as you know, started very early and it's been very intense, i think that he really wants to do a great job for north korea. i think he wants to de-nuke. it's very important. without that there's nothing to discuss. that was on the table at the beginning and you see a total denuclearization of north korea, so important, and he wants to do the right thing. now, with all of that being said i can't talk about -- it doesn't matter. we're starting from scratch. we're starting right now and we have to get rid of those nuclear weapons. >> how do you trust him, though? is he willing to change? do you believechanged? >> wl,ou kno over my lifetime i've done a lot of deals with a lot of people and sometimes the people that you most distrust turn out to be the
7:13 am
most honorable ones and the people you do trust, they are not the honorable ones so we are starting from a very high plane. we're starting from a very good relationship. this has been a very big day in terms of the world. i think it's been maybe a lot of people are saying -- >> calling it historic. >> yeah, even my enemies are calling it historic. the fact is, we have done something that's very unique. nobody has met with the family. nobody at a high level. >> no president has. >> no president has certainly, and we've done something that we're very proud of. it's a very strong document. >> his father made agreements with the united states. and then said he was going to stop nuclear weapons and backslid, didn't keep the commitments. >> right, and he talks about that he said that there are reasons he didn't because he was let down by the united states. but that's irrelevant. what he's doing -- and he very much said that. he said, you know, over the years -- first of all, they've never gone this far, you know,
7:14 am
never been at a level like this and his father never dealt with a president and a lot of other things but he said -- it's very much in his mind. he said, we are going to get this done. in the past we've tried but it never worked out and it never did work out and it was embarrassing actually to the united states. and to our leadership. this is different. i believe you'll find in the years to come, george, i think you'll find this different. >> how are you going to know he's keeping his word? he's committed to this? >> we're going to be following things. we're going to be monitoring things. we're dealing with him very -- on a constant basis. secretary of state mike pompeo did a very, very good job, great energy, and they have a great relationship, his counterpart. they have a really good relationship. they're moving along. they're getting it done. i've been up 24 hours now straight between phone calls and, you know, working it. this is a very -- look, this is 72 years we're talking about and we put it into one very intensive day and some meetings beforehand. >> but a lot of people look at kim jong-un and say, there is no way he is ever giving up those nuclear weapons.
7:15 am
that's why he survives. that's why he was in this room today. >> well, i think we have to disagree, otherwise i wouldn't be here or i would have respectfully, you know, i would have shaken his hand, i would have said, listen, i'll see you oun't have had any interest. no, this was very important. it's in the first paragraph. it says complete and total denuclearization. without that i wouldn't have been interested. i believe that he wants to get it done. >> you trust him? >> i do trust him, yeah. now, will i come back to you in a year and you'll be interviewing and i'll say, gee, i made a mistake. that's always possible. we're dealing at a very high level. a lot of things can change. a lot of things are possible. he trusts me, i believe. i really do. he said openly and he said it to a couple of reporters that were with him that he knows that no other president ever could have done this. i mean no other -- he knows the presidents. he knows who we had in front of me. he said no other president could have done this. i think he trusts me and i trust him. >> ronald reagan said trust but
7:16 am
verify. >> yeah. >> how do you verify this commitment? >> we'll be verifying and we'll be working with them and it's going to be much more open than it is right now. right now it's obviously very closed. it's a closed society. we know very little about -- you know, if you ask intelligence, they will tell you probably they know less about this area of the world than they do any place anywhere in the world. we're going to be working very closely with them. we've developed great relationships at different levels. mike pompeo's got really very good, strong relationships and others have also. today we introduced them to john bolton which was a very interesting thing and -- >> he says how do you know kim jong-un is lying, his lips are moving. >> by the end of that conversation it was good. i think they have good trust. >> final question, when is kim coming to the white house? >> well, i want to get it along. i want the process to start. i want to see some real work going on, which i believe i will and i would love to have him at the white house, whatever it
7:17 am
takes, and i would love to have him at the white house and i think he'd love to be there. at a certain point when it's complete i'd love to be there. >> and, guys, you can see from that interview -- those exchange i had with president trump how much he is banking on this personal relationship with kim jong-un. what a contrast to the words he used about kim jong-un just a few months ago. he says he trusts him. he says kim jong-un means it when he says he's going to get rid of the nuclear weapons. of course, we are all waiting to see if that's really true, if kim jong-un is going to do what his father didn't do, what his grandfather didn't do, but right now we know that president trump is -- believes that personal relationship has started something new between the u.s. and north korea. time will tell if he's right. >> time will tell. it's obvious that there does appear to be trust there. i know coming up you also talked with the president before coming -- before going to singapore. he was at the g7. a little bit different there than it is in singapore. >> yeah, it's been quite a strange few days because the
7:18 am
president, even as he's reaching out to kim jong-un, a sworn enemy of the united states as the president just said for 65 years, had such harsh criticism for our allies, including the canadian prime minister justin said was making false statements. i asked the president about that, pressed him about that. we'lhe h explanation in the next half hour. >> all right, george, thank you very much. so we will have much more from george in singapore ahead. now over to ginger. >> and we're going to go straight to the tuesday trivia sponsored by walgreens.

the storm is expected to hit baja california on thursday but thankfully it is set to weaken. also this morning, we are hearing from some of those who knew anthony bourdain best. his estranged wife sharing this image of their daughter wearing the boots he gave her. much more coming up. but now, more of george's exclusive interview with president trump. george. >> thanks, guys. as robin mentioned i also talked to the president about that g7 summit. this is the second summit in several days for the president coming off that meeting in canada with our closest allies, which really was a failed summit and ended with the president pulling out of the joint communique over the issue of trade having very harsh criticism of the canadian prime minister justin trudeau and, of course, canada is our oldest allies and i asked the president to explain that dizzying diplomacy. this has been a dizzying few days of diplomacy. >> true. >> for you. >> reaching out here to kim jong-un, longtime enemy of the united states.
7:32 am
comi off of at sumt caith those tough words for the canadian prime minister. how do you explain that to people who might be confused, we're reaching out to our enemies and antagonizing our allies. >> i have great friendships. if you speak to prime minister abe who i'm helping a lot because japan, three or four times they had missiles going right over the middle of japan. i have a very good relationship with prime minister abe. i have a great relationship with the new man who i like a lot, as you know, from italy, he just won and, you know, we had very good -- and, frankly, really good with merkel. pretty much were all of them. we actually were getting ready to sign a document and i made them make various changes. you know what we were doing. we were talking while we were waiting for the final copy of the document. that was such an innocent picture. that was put out by my people. that was really a picture of me
7:33 am
sitting this way and i'm waiting for the document so we can final read it. what happened is we had a final document. i wasn't 100% but i wanted to leave nicely so we had a document. i get into air force one. the television is on and i see a news conference being given by the prime minister of canada. >> because canadians were polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around. >> i said, oh, that's nice, justin -- then he talked about how they won't be bullied. and i said what is this all about? he didn't do that to my face. what's this all about? here's what the story is. we have been taken advantage of as a country for decades by friends and enemies both. we have been -- our trade is a disaster. our trade deals. we lose $817 billion was the last count on a yearly basis. think of it, george. in other words, when you add china and all of the other places, germany, the european union is a disaster for us, we
7:34 am
lost $151 billion last year. billion, not million. we lost 151 billion. they don't take our product. they won't take our agriculture. we lost 151 billion -- now they were at the meeting, the european union. i can't be thrilled. i let them know and i said we got to change it. if you don't change it we're not going to do trading. i do want to say that was supposed to be a friendly picture put out by us and we were waiting for the document to come back so we could read it. i left, everybody was happy, everybody shook. you should ask prime minister abe. everybody was happy, then he gave out a little bit of an obnoxious thing. i actually like justin, i think he's good. i like him but he shouldn't have done that. that's a mistake. that's going to cost him a lot of money. >> boy, that is going to cost him a lot of money, the canadian prime minister. i'm here with our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz. also, tom bossert just left the
7:35 am
white house recently. tom, let me begin with you. clearly the president is animated by trade issues. that is not the script that i think his aides would have recommended coming into this meeting. >> well, i don't think it was the kind of script he would have used coming into the meeting. i think you asked him after the meeting. i thought he felt a little more laid back so could explain himself. certainly probably didn't help him coming to the meeting but it didn't hurt him either. right. he came into these conversations with somebody he had to be tough. hasn't reached an agreement to sign this historic blueprint for peace. maybe it was an okay move for him to show a little bit strength there. >> actually what president trump just did in that interview is a, kind of what justin trudeau said to him, which is i'm going to stand up for america, and justin trudeau said i'm going to stand up foranians, and let's not forget that president trump started calling justin trudeau names, that's what really crossed the line for a lot of people and probably for justin trudeau as well. >> let's talk about the agreement coming out of here and, martha, the big headlines are united states can provide
7:36 am
security guarantees and north korea agrees to denuclearization. the president didn't emphasize the words after, the korean peninsula, that has been the north korean position. >> that's exactly what it is and you started getting at it with him talking about the nuclear umbrella and whether we would do away with that and he said that wasn't on the table. but clearly what he's talking about as well is moving back those strategic bombers and that is very significant. he is agreeing to something right away about security for them and denuclearizing the entire korean peninsula. >> and the question is going to be, tom bossert, now, what does the united states get in return? what is kim jong-un doing? it seems like this meeting couldn't have gone better but it's about the follow-through. >> there are a number of things we get if this blueprint turns into action and without that
7:37 am

[ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: north korea's most famous news reader dressed in traditional pink and black dress announced the unexpected news to a nation accustomed to being in the dark about the movements of their leader kim jong-un. for the very first time the isolated nation learned about their leader's movements while he is still outside the country showing these select images of kim jong-un's journey to singapore and the state newspaper and on state television. prior to the announcement from the internationally known anchor most north koreans were unaware of where or when the meeting between president trump and kim jong-un was supposed to take place. they were more accustomed to seeing their leader like this. touring local restaurants and in south korea the reaction was generally positive most i spoke to relieved. others upset because they spoke mostly about nuclear bombs, very little about human rights. if they don't talk about human rights today, are you okay with that?

>> no, i'm not okay. then what's the point of having peace talks? >> reporter: now, south korea's president moon jae-in was very, very satisfied with this summit. partly because he made it happen. as he said in a statement, he believes that this summit will break down the last remaining cold war legacy on earth. robin. >> that is the hope, bob. thank you. and we'll have much more on that historic summit coming up and a warning about ticks, a 5-year-old waking up temporarily paralyzed from a bite. dr. ashton is here with what you need to know. here with what you need to know.

8:03 am
terrific personality. i pressed him on that because the big question coming out of this is we know that kim is a brutal dictator. we know how he's treated his own people. i asked the president how you can trust a man like kim. >> kim is a brutal dictator. he runs a police state, forced starvation, labor camps. he's assassinated members of his own family. how do you trust a killer like that? >> george, i'm given what i'm given, okay. this is what we have and this is where we are and i can only tell you from my experience and i met him. i have spoken with him and i met him, and this is as you know started very early and it's been very intense, i think that he really wants to do a great job for north korea. i think he wants to denuke. it's very important. without that there's nothing to discuss. that was on the table at the beginning and you see a total denuclearization of north korea, so important. and he wants to do the right thing. now, with all of that being said i can't talk about it doesn't matter.
8:04 am
we're starting from scratch. we're starting right now and we have to get rid of those nuclear weapons. >> how do you trust him though? is he willing to change? do you believe he's changed? >> well, you know, over my lifetime i've done a lot of deals with a lot of people and sometimes the people that you most distrust turn out to be the most honorable ones and the people that you do trust, they are not the honorable ones. >> here with jon karl and martha raddatz for more and, jon, let me start with you. the president confirmed a bit of news there. something we suspected that even though this is the first time he met kim jong-un, not the first time he's spoken with him. the question, is his assessment of him on target? >> that's extraordinary what he just said to you. he used the word honorable. it's one thing to say i've got a sense i can trust him because he's made a strategic decision that he wants to move his country in a different direction. but he's calling kim jong-un honorable. george, in that state of the union address the president's
8:05 am
state of the union address earlier this year he said that was the most repressive nation on the planet. and now -- >> yeah, can you imagine korean state television running that there in north korea having president trump say that about kim jong-un? it's kind of gold for them. but that issue of trust, i mean, frankly, i don't know how you trust kim jong-un. i'm sure he got a great feeling in that meeting and incredible, extraordinary historic day but trusting kim jong-un is a pretty precarious situation. >> well, you can't trust him. the president did say that he hoped americans and other international inspectors would be able to go in to look at the north korean nuclear program. they've kicked them out before. never let them stay. >> this is the hermit kingdom. this is the most isolated country in the world. and we've got -- we're so far from an actual agreement.
8:06 am
this was a massive step. to me the biggest step that we saw here throughout this is just seeing kim jong-un leave his country, go further from home than he's ever gone. go out, walk around the streets of singapore, step before the american press, this is something we've never seen. >> didn't say much but did come out. >> didn't say much but come out and none of that -- >> tourist. >> but in terms of an agreement, there's no sense of how this is done let alone how it would be verified. >> we don't even know what they have. that's a starting point and the president said that today. that this is a starting point but we don't have data for exactly what they have. i mean, they made such huge gains in the last year and our intelligence -- >> well, and that is one of the key things to watch for going forward. until they come forward with that list of what they have and we verify it you can't even really begin the process. >> exactly, exactly. you can't get rid of it until you know exactly what you have and you have to trust that they're turning over all that data. he said we would be sending in

teams. u.s. and others going in and trying to figure out what exactly they have. i mean, the best guess is how many nuclear weapons they have. it ranks anywhere from 10 to 60, probably more like 20 but we just don't know. we really have a long way to go with this. >> could be months, even years. jon karl, martha raddatz, thanks very much. back to you in new york. >> the word that the president used over and over again potential. i have to say this, the entire abc news team there in singapore has done an incredible job and the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of journalists that were there, the president, george, spoke to you first, right after signing that historic agreement. what was that moment like, george? >> it was pretty incredible as i said. the president was in a pretty ebullient move and giving kudos to the crew and i have to also say we were able to get that done because the crew set up those cameras in record time, something that usually takes

three hours took 15 minutes. >> we mean in front of and behind the cameras. we know the work that goes into doing something like this. thank you all so very much. thank you, george. and we have a lot more news coming up. that warning as we head into summer, a 5-year-old girl temporarily paralyzed from a tick bite. dr. ashton is here. and the secret struggles of anthony bourdain. what rose mcgowan is now saying in an open letter. and lara, what's going on upstairs. >> feeling quite bold, if you will, with the ladies from "bold," "the bold type" in the house. we cannot wait to talk about their new hit show. fabulous, you don't want to go anywhere. great audience too obviously. great audience too obviously. to most people, i look like... ...most people. but on the inside, i feel chronic, widespread pain. fibromyalgia may be invisible to others, but my pain is real. fibromyalgia is thought to be caused by overactive nerves.

8:17 am
get into the car. abc's t.j. holmes is here with the details and, t.j., this technology is raising a lot of questions. >> the question, how is your phone supposed to know you're drunk? well, everybody, think about it for a second. haven't we all gotten a text message from a friend and you're looking at the typos and you're like, whoa, my boy is messed up. well, uber is looking into that kind of technology and that kind of behavior among some others to figure out if you're drunk and this is raising safety concerns for both the driver and passenger. these are the scenarios uber is hoping to avoid. >> can i tell you something, you [ bleep ]. >> reporter: remember this, an intoxicated former taco bell executive who pleaded guilty to battery and was sentenced to 60 days in jail after attacking his uber driver. >> can you call 911, please? >> call 911. oh, yeah. >> reporter: and this miami doctor who kneed an uber driver and made a mess of his car after a night out on the town.
8:18 am
>> i'm so thankful that he did not press charges or have me arrested. >> reporter: uber is hoping to put an end to these kinds of sometimes drunken encounters, filing a patent application for software that could detect if a passenger can in an abnormal state, in other words, inebriated. the app would use artificial intelligence to determine if you're acting uncharacteristically, behavior like how fast you're walking, the speed and accuracy of your typing, even the angle that you're holding your phone. all contributing factors that could allow drivers to deny the ride. but while it may protect drivers from situations like this -- >> shut the [ bleep ] up. >> reporter: experts warn it could lead to heightened dangers for passengers. >> you can't assign a level of behavior to all people. it just doesn't fit. you have people with disabilities. people that are intoxicated who actually need rides and are in unsafe spaces. >> reporter: so, yes, it's supposed to protect uber drivers from people being belligerent or even making a mess in the car.
8:19 am
what about the person who really needs a ride, can't get one, and decides to get in the car and drive? that's bad. also, you could be vulnerable. if someone is intoxicated if there are uber drivers preying on people, that person is intoxicated, maybe i can take advantage of them. so those are the things coming up. uber has no plans to implement this any time soon but are looking into it and raises, like you said, questions. >> still a lot of questions and a long way to go before it's implemented. thank you very much, t.j. good luck with those texts you get. got to go to amy. >> all right, michael, thanks. we turn now to new details about anthony bourdain's death. actress rose mcgowan, a close friend of bourdain's girlfriend, is now writing about his secret struggles and abc's adrienne bankert is here with the story. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: good morning to you, too, amy. in seeking a reason for what may have contributed to bourdain taking his life, some attention has been on his relationships, girlfriend asia argento and me too champion rose mcgowan writing a letter on her behalf. asia writes please read these words and have mercy on our pain.

all right, now to that new alert about ticks after a mother made a terrifying discovery. her 5-year-old daughter temporarily paralyzed from a bite. we're going to speak to dr. jen ashton about that in a moment. but first, here's their story. imagine your healthy, happy 5-year-old waking up in the morning suddenly unable to walk or talk. >> all i could do is cry. i was just freaking out. >> reporter: jessica griffin took to facebook, a post shared now almost half a million times, writing, we had a bit of a scare this morning. kailyn work up and couldn't walk. i was just thinking her legs were asleep until i noticed that she couldn't hardly talk. after noticing a tick on her daughter's head, the mississippi mom rushed her to the hospital. jessica says doctors checked for everything from a stroke to a neurological issue. >> of course, i'm the type that all bad things are just running through my mind. >> reporter: according to jessica, tests finally came back confirming the culprit was that tick.
8:24 am
>> now, i did suspect that it was a tick. i'm just thankful that it wasn't anything worse. >> reporter: tick paralysis can be caused by a toxin spread to humans by certain types of ticks. while rare it is most likely to occur in children. symptoms generally appear after the tick has been feeding for four to seven days. once the tick was removed, jessica says kailyn's paralysis symptoms subsided and now thankfully she's back to normal. >> how are you feeling now? are you feeling good? >> uh-huh. >> we're glad that she is and experts say parents should be especially vigilant now since peak season for ticks is from april to september. so, jen, is it just children? tell us more about this paralysis. >> no, it's not just children but it is more common in children, so tick paralysis was first reported back in 1824. thankfully it is incredibly rare but it can cause paralysis of the face, the upper extremities or the legs, mimicking someone's inability to walk. the treatment is prompt recognition that there is a tick causing this.
8:25 am
removing the tick generally is all that's necessary. maybe some supportive care. >> that mississippi mom knew. >> she sure did. >> tick-borne illnesses on the rise. >> it is, and we've heard already reports from the cdc warning people about that over the last 12 years. tick, mosquito, flea-borne illness has tripled. and it's not just lyme disease. take a look at this list. babesiosis, rocky mountain spotted fever, the list goes on and on so it is important to have your awareness up. >> okay, i know you love to bust myths. >> i do. >> can you help us? you'll give us a thumb's up or thumb's down when i ask a certain question if you think it's true or false. are you all in on this? >> no pressure. >> no pressure. >> right. >> okay, this is the first one. thumb's up, thumb's down. all ticks, all ticks transmit lyme disease? we got a lot of thumbs down. >> we got a smart audience. >> yeah, we do. >> so that's false. only the deer tick or the black legged tick transmits lyme
8:26 am
disease and it has to be attached for around 36 hours to do so but i just want to point -- >> it's so tiny. >> right. it is the size of a poppyseed. if you see there in comparison to a penny, that's the deer tick. if you see something bigger like a sesame seed that's a dog tick. you don't have to worry about lyme disease. >> only have 30 seconds left. symptoms from a tick bite can show up days to weeks later. days to weeks later. oh, my gosh. they are so smart. >> they've had their coffee today and gone to medical school. it's true, it's days, hours, weeks, sometimes even months. that's why it's important to take a good history and give a good history about possible exposure if you're a patient. >> all right, dr. jen, thank you and thank you to this wonderful audience. [ applause ] we'll be right back. [ applause ] we'll be right back.
