and take a look oow. appreciate that. >> fantastic for showing up. >> you had an excused absence from the game last night. you had a very big interview, rare access to president trump. >> incredible couple of days, robin. i spent the last few days behind the scenes with president trump, and access no reporter has gotten before, an interview in air force one, in the presidential oval office. we spent a lot of time together and he made a lot of news last night, including that remarkable admission that he would accept -- he's open to accepting information from a foreign government in the 2020 election. it's already getting an explosive reaction. >> reporter: we had two packed
days of extraordinary access. it started tuesday. the president was heading to iowa. >> how are you? >> great to join you. >> thank you. >> reporter: he invited us on air force one and that famed
presidential limo called the beast. >> this is some piece of machinery. >> oh, this is amazing. >> reporter: while the president landed in one part of iowa, democratic front-runner joe biden in another. >> donald trump is trying to take away your convictions. your protections for preexisting conditions. >> reporter: i asked the president about the reports that he's trailing biden in the polls. >> i don't believe the polls. there's no way he beats me in texas. >> even your own poll shows you're behind, don't they? >> no, my polls show i'm winning everywhere. >> we've all seen these reports, 15 out of 17 states you're behind. 15 out of 17 states. >> nobody showed you those polls because those polls don't exist, george. those polls don't exist. i'm losing 15 out of 17 states? those polls don't exist. i was just given a meeting with my pollster who i frankly don't even believe in pollsters if you want to know the truth. you run a campaign, and whatever it is, it is. i met with someone who is a
pollster, and i'm winning everywhere. >> reporter: but the president wanted to know more so a few seconds later he asked to go off the record to call his campaign manager. >> let's call brad. i want to ask him that question. >> reporter: those polls still on his mind the next morning when we meet. he had already tweeted about it. >> on "good morning america," today, they had that phony polling information. i explained it to you last night that it was phony, but you didn't do anything about it. you should have but perhaps it was late in the evening and you didn't get a chance. >> i listened, i studied the information. i heard the explanations. >> ultimately, it doesn't matter. >> why does it bother you so much? >> because it's untrue. i like the truth, you know, i'm actually a very honest guy. >> reporter: as we talked in the oval office, the president's son was heading to the senate intelligence committee for more testimony. >> your son don jr. is before the senate intelligence committee today and again, he wasn't charged with anything. >> not only wasn't he charged, if you read it, with all the horrible fake news, i mean, i was reading that my son was
going to go to jail. this is a good young man. that he was going to go to jail. >> reporter: don junior has been caught up in the russia investigation because of that trump tower meeting in 2016 which he set up expecting to get dirt on hillary clinton from the russian government. >> okay. let's put yourself in a position. you're a congressman. somebody comes up and says, hey. i have information on your opponent. do you call the fbi? i'll tell you what, i have seen a lot of things in my life. i don't think in my whole life i call the fbi. in my whole life. you don't call the fbi. >> the fbi director said that should happen. >> the fbi director is wrong because frankly, it doesn't happen like that in life. >> your campaign this time around, if foreigners, russia, china or someone else offers information on the opponent should they accept it or call
the fbi? >> i think you do both. you might want to listen. there's nothing wrong with listening. if somebody called from a country, norway, we have information on your opponent, oh, i think i'd want to hear it. >> you want that kind of interference in our elections?
>> it's not an interference. they have information. i think i'd take it. >> robin, i've got to tell you guys, that was just a stunning moment for me for the president to admit it like this. this has been at the heart of the debate for the last two years, foreign interference in our elections, whether or not russia tried to interfere, whether they were trying to deliver dirt on hillary clinton. he said i'd take a look at it before i called the fbi, and as i pointed out in that int interview, the fbi director said, absolutely, if you get an offer like that, you should go straight to the fbi. the president said that was wrong. it's getting an explosive t p world. >> it's generating headlines and as you can imagine, the 2020 candidates are weighing in as well. let's go to mary bruce in washington with the latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is sending shock waves through the 2020 race. the president's opponents saying what he's talking about in this interview isn't oppo research, it's foreign interference and they say it's dangerous. the president's top target on the trail, joe biden, tweeting,
it isn't about politics. it's a threat to our national security, adding that an american president should not seek their aid and abet those who seek to undermine democracy. kamala harris says trump is sending a clear message to our adversaries. take a listen. >> to our adversaries around the world and fill in the blanks, north korea, russia fill in the blank. he's sending a signal to them, hey, come on in. >> reporter: meanwhile, bernie sanders e kirsten gillibrand and elizabeth warren all have a urge of the need to impeach the president. and trump welcomed the help and now he said he'd do it all over again. guys, she says now is the time to impeach donald trump. >> mary, that's all of the presidential candidates. this is also creating more debate in congress, likely to put more pressure on house speaker nancy pelosi. >> absolutely, george. we have been seeing the pressure already growing on the house
speaker. this is only likely to underscore that. she is in a very difficult spot. so far, she has been urging caution, instead, urging investigations, to fhesero president, only ratchet up the movement and to start impeachment. >> mary bruce, thanks very much. this is going to roll throughout the day. >> you had a few wild days with the president. >> it was something. in that exchange right there, i hadn't even asked at first about robert mueller. we were just talking about the oval office, talking about the beginning of the day. it is so clearly on his mind right now. he's so clearly angry about it, as you can see, and very, very defiant. we talked about a lot more including other aspects of the mueller investigation, obstruction of justice. the president took questions from me that he wouldn't take from robert mueller. we're going to have more on that later. >> much more in our next half-hour and also he revealed something on air force one? >> this is something we haven't seen. the president has a new design for air force one. he showed it to us. everyone is going to see it later in the show.
>> we will. all right. we're going to that storm that's hitting the east coast with rain. that's out here with us this morning, and we'll go to ginger who is on the steps of the museum with the very latest. good morning to you, ginger. >> hey. good morning to all of you. philly showing off, still looking good even in this torrential rain. we have been enduring and will, for the next three to five hours. let's look at the video coming out of charleston, south carolina. this moved up from the gulf really. this is more than 4 inches, a daily record for charleston, flooding the streets there. now it is really centered on the mid-atlantic. we threw the lightning bolts on there just to showcase along that low pressure system from delaware to maryland you may be seeing some of the lightning with this. the flood advisories including dover and on. ere goesne o robin, another shot of thunderstorms from pennsylvania along the east coast. but for now, we'll head back to you.
>> and i found out contact lenses and the rain do not mix. hence the glasses. thank you, ginger. more from you. but we have new developments now in the shooting of former red sox legend david ortiz. six people including the alleged gunman now in custody, and police say they found the gun used in the attack. our chief national affairs correspondent tom llamas is there in boston for us with the very latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you, and this is far from over. there is an urgent manhunt right now in the dominican republic for even more suspects, including one nicknamed the surgeon, and we have learned overnight, that person, the surgeon, is also wanted here in the u.s. in a separate case, but a similar crime, conspiracy to commit attempted homicide. this new video shows just how close david ortiz came to dying. his assassin in the baseball cap walking right up to him, shooting him in the back. the single shot sending ortiz to
the floor, and clubgoers right their seats, this morning, the alleged gunman, 25-year-old rolfi ferriera cruz is behind bars. police say this is the gun he used, holding it up during a news conference where they announced a total of six people have been arrested and they're still looking for more. investigators say the men agreed to kill big papi for less than $8,000. the alleged plan involved these two hyundais parked in front of each other. you can see one man getting out of one of the cars. a motorcycle nearby, the alleged getaway vehicle, shown moments later with two men on it, driving down the street moments before the ambush. police say the suspect stalked ortiz while he was out at a nightclub in santo domingo on sunday night, shooting him while he was outside on the patio. ortiz in boston, where we played for the red sox and back home in the dominican republic. though police say they know who tried to kill big papi, they have yet to say why.
ortiz's wife tells us he is recovering here in the hospital, but he has to maintain himself in the intensive care unit. fans all week all around boston have been wearing big papi jerseys. they tell me they've been praying for the slugger and we're expecting as soon as he's better, as soon as he's stronger, they're likely to have a big welcome back party at fenway, george. >> looking forward to that. tom, thank you very much. now to that breaking news overseas. the u.s. navy is rushing to help two oil tankers in oman. this comes amid rising tensions with iran. joining us is chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. the u.s. navy received two separate distress calls this morning, 45 minutes apart, after reports of explosions on the tankers and then rushed the "uss bainbridge," a guided missile destroyer, to help. it happened in international waters between the coasts of iran and oman, near the straits of hormuz.
that major waterway for the world's oil. this was in the same waters where four tankers were sabotaged last month, but the damage from the suspected attack this morning appears to be far more serious. the crew was forced to evacuate from one of the ships. and reports are that at least one of the tankers is on fire. the u.s. blamed iran for the sabotage of the ships last month, a claim in which iran denied. this occurred while japan's prime minister was meeting with iran's ayatollah to ease tensions in the region, but this will surely raise tensions even further. michael? >> definitely tensions will rise. thank you so much, martha. we're going to turn now to that thrilling stanley cup final, a moment that was 52 years in the making, the st. louis blues winning game seven, beating boston, capturing their first championship ever. abc's alex perez in st. louis where fans were celebrating late into the night. hopefully they can't keep you
up, alex. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. as you mentioned, this has been a moment five decades in the making. to say that people here are happy, that would be a huge understatement. take a look, the st. louis blues celebrating their first ever stanley cup title, beating the nhl powerhouse boston bruins in a decisive game seven. the blues capping off a comeback for the ages going from dead last as recently as january, to now flying high as hockey's top team. the celebrations among the blues faithful stretching all the way back home here to st. louis, huge crowds packing in to watch the game and celebrate at that final buzzer. but the most touching celebration may have been right on the ice in boston. the blues inviting 11-year-old superfan laila anderson who suffers from a rare life-threatening immune disease to the game. and after they won, she got to have her own special moment with the cup. the team now making its way back home for the big victory parade. michael.
>> all right, thank you so much. >> worst to first. >> worse to first. that's amazing. worst to first, and watching last night and dominating with a rookie goaltender who was stopping everything. really impressive by the st. louis blues. congratulations to them and the fans. >> we were at dinner last night and you were in d.c. you kept getting text messages from this man here. he was watching the stanley cup finals. >> i was watching it alone, stra. >> ginger and i were having a good time. but you're on your way to golden state. this is the game tonight. and they don't have kevin durant. >> they do not have durant. we know about his injury now, but we're going out there. we know it will be the last game at oracle, but the warriors hoping it's not the last game of the series. >> and there will be a game six in oakland! reportematterhe 47 years, their last gamer ever
at oakland's oracle arena. >> we're just thinking about enjoying this last show at fans. >> reporter: down 3-2, they'll have to make this last stand without superstar kevin durant who confirmed he ruptured his achilles. in the warriors' nail-biting victory in the north. on wednesday he posted this photo from his hospital bed saying surgery was today and it was a success. adding, i wanted to help my teammates on our quest for the three-peat. i'm proud that i gave it all that i physically could. i know my brothers will get this game six and i will be cheering with dub nation while they do it. steph curry vows to step up. >> klay says to protect our home court, feed off our crowd's energy, play for k and try to keep our season alive. >> reporter: now golden state has one more chance to put on a show for the home crowd in oakland and stave off elimination and possibly get to a game seven back in toronto. >> i expect our fans to be the loudest they've ever been, especially in the name of kevin, and, you know, bringing his type of spirit he would bring to the fight and the competitiveness.
>> of course, we know this will be the last game for them at oracle. tickets, some going for $71,000 a seat. >> wow. >> george said he's going to get me one, right, george? of course, everybody, you can watch game six of the nba finals right here on abc starting at 8:30 eastern tonight. >> nope. ahead, we've got surprising news from amanda knox. she's returning to italy nearly eight years after being who has a guest with her, karen. >> karen. >> can i introduce you to karen rogers! >> it's that kind of day. we're so happy you're here with us. >> i'm happy to be here. >> we've got much more coming up here. we've got to get to your local weather in 30 seconds and the rainy cities sponsored by amazon prime.
