president, france once again paid the price with her blood. we understand the suspect had no police record. he was on the nagtwide db of people suspected of terrorism. but this is a list can 26,000 people on it. and the french interior minister says it's impossible to keep tabs on everyone. >> another difficult day in paris. thank you very much. it's been deadly in indonesia as well with three bomb attacks on three separate churches attacked in the second largest city. 13 people killed and dozens pg injured. the attacks went off almost simultaneously during sunday morning mass. officials say the suicide bombers were members of the same family including teenagers and children. with just weeks to go before the historic summit between president trump and kim jong un there may be another sign of progress. kelly o'donnell at the white
house with more for us. good morning. >> good morning, from the korean peninsula to the middle east president trump is setting changes in motion that could have long-lasting consequences. his meeting set for june 12th and north korea is providing another sign that summit is on track. . another dramatic step from kim jong un. saturday north korean state media reported that within two weeks one nuclear test site will be dismanteled by explosives. president trump reacted with an ee fusive thank you. . a smart and gracious gesture. coming after the release of three marens as kim prepares for the singapore summit with president trump. >> i really think he wants to do something. and bring the country into the real world. >> eager to shone foreign policy metal, the president is celebrating a controversial move in the middle east over the holy
city claimed by jews and palestines. >> we will final open the american embassy in jerusalem. daughter ivanka trump posted with great joy she will be part of the delegation por the monday ribbon cutting. tensions are already high as palestinian protests are expected to coincide with the embassy oh opening. back home the president's lawyer tells nbc news that he will request robert mueller agree to wait for a possible investigation interview with the president until after the trump kim summit june 12th. i couldn't take his situation away from that said giuliani. we can't prepare in the way he deserves to be prepared before the summit. giuliani also clarified comments he made about trump loyalist michael cohen's 6-figure
consulting contract with at&t at it sought perms to merge with time warner. the merge he were denied by the justice department. giuliani told me. i just want to be clear, the president did not intervene. >> and there is more fallout over the white house staff member crass remark about john mccain saying his opinion didn't matter because he is dying anyway. utah senate candidate mitt romney wheated those who don't comment about this are silent accomplices. also lindsey graham who is a friend both to john mccain and on good terms with president trump called the remark disgusting and says the white house should apologize. >> kelly o'donnell thank you as always. chuck todd is enjoying a well deserved morning off. happy to be joined by nbc news political analyst and state department adviser elise jordan. thanks. picking one the mccain story ppt white house has not formally apologized kelly saddler on the
communications staff says they've acknowledged she said it john mccain is dying so we wouldn't worry that he will railroad for gina haspel. sarah sanders said the skment unacceptable but seemed more concerned by the fact it was leaked. why can't they bring themselves to say it happens, wrong and we're sorry for it. >> let's put it in the overall context of what the comment was even about. this horrible compensate. it's about confirming the first woman to the cia who had a history of running the black sites and the torture program during the war on terror. this is ultimately a debate about torture and trying to get -- push a nominee through who john mccain disagrees with and discussing his death as he suffers from ar a very terrible terminal form of brain cancer. it is par for the course for this white house to dispense with casual kult cruelty it's
the defining characteristic of president trump. they're fudge to double done and i would be shocked if they step it back and apologize. >> remember, in the first month of his presidential campaign in july of 2015 one of his first acts was to say that john mccain is not a war hero. perhaps miss saddler thought she had cover. >> exactly. and it didn't hurt donald trump. >> right. >> the base kind of liked it. it didn't hurt him in the polls. he kept going up. they think they can survive anything. >> let's talk about north korea we have more news this morning that north korea "the guardian"ed to dismantel nuclear test sites. the president thanked north korea for the gesture. the three americans released by north korea. to mike pompeo, the secretary of state, ahead of this june 12th meeting between kim jong un and president trump in singapore, where are you on the spectrum of skepticism about north korea. >> it's a positive step to dismantle a test site but it
shows north korea it is pretty confident to put it together again. it's a positive step to release three hostages. but north korea shouldn't have taken them in the first place and put them in forced labor. i do have a dreg of skepticism about what the summit are accomplish since donald trump says that says that denuclearization is the only acceptable outcome for him. and north korea hasn't been speaking in the same way and has been more vague about promises. so at the end of the day it's coming down to what can be achieved at this summit. and donald trump needs a win after just this week he decided to withdraw from the iran nuclear zbleel and north korea is wonder whag that means for any deal they make. i want to ask you back at home about this essential consultants, the lobbying firm set up by the personal attorney for my knowledge cohen to make the payment to stormy daniels. and now we learn there was a ton of money flowing in from a ton of places including major
american corporations like at&t to get the ear of donald trump through michael cohen to get access to the white house. but also a company who is stake holder is a russian oligarch. trump supporters say this is the which business is done. always lobbying going on. which is this different. >> trump support he is can say this is business as usual. and yes it's a form of legalized corruption in my opinion. but the fact of the matter is it's exactly what donald trump campaigned on. and what propel him to office that he said he was going to drain the swamp. what's unique about this is who while michael cohen was taken money from americans it's a bit odd to half half a million dollars from a company linked to a russian oligarch who is sanctioned for interference during the election for interference. it's a tricky web that michael cohen has a lot to as answer for. >> not much draining of the swamp. great to have you with us this morning. >> thank you. a new physician yur opened

washington hiekts, a once crime ridden neighborhood now almost unrecognizable from decade ago. >> want to try it on. the interactions here i hope helps. >> the little girl you speak to and she is 15 or 16 will remember this moment. >> yeah, that's what we hope. >> they are called neighborhood coordination officers. ncos. assigned to small specific zones. by year's end in every precinct. >> if we're not working together with the people live, work and worship in the neighborhoods we're not accomplishing anything. >> community support is essential in fighting crime. like the time ncos natalie and amber were chasing down a robbery. a personal connection with the local bar made the difference. >> we needed the video footage and got them. >> you see the change now. there is more work has to be done. >> city councilmember was born
and raised in new york. he says the nco program is a start but reflects on the time he was stopped by police at 13 years old. >> freeze. at that moment i had no idea that you shouldn't go in your pockets because weapons were drawn on us. that is an experience i will never forget. >> but is throwing a few cops in a community on a daily basis really going to change the minds of a generation that grau up during that really difficult period? >> no, you can never undo the damage but you can try. >> the chief says the police department is committed to making it work. >> it's been said many times it's hard to hate up close. you may hate the blue uniform. but when you know the person and as a human it's different. >> for sunday today, stephanie gosk, new york. >> steph, thank you very much. next on sunday today, dill within a tribute to moms before they were moms. >> i think as kids we often forget that our parents are
human. this project requires us to see these women and remember, hey, you are not the only thing on this time line. >> and later, a life well lived, the hollywood trail blazer whose oscar winning work was not on the screen but in the darkness of the edit room. can help us bring history back to life. to recreate historical sites, we had to stitch hundreds of pictures one by one. with microsoft ai, we are able to stitch hundreds of thousands of pictures in one night. i need to make it possible, because it's so important to do it. with artificial intelligence you can go in, you can experience it. give mom the perfect gift and get kohl's cash! give her a designer fragrance or nike sneakers and get kohl's cash! help mom clean up with a roomba and you'll get $70 kohl's cash! plus shop other great gifts storewide the more you spend
the more you save! kohl's. your parents have been ittalking about you for years.. they're all about me saving for a house, or starting a college fund for my son. actually, i want to know what you're thinking. knowing that the most important goals are yours, is how edward jones makes sense of investing.
as you celebrate mom on this mother's day sunday, you most post a throwback photo of her to social media. that's my mom, jody, just killing those pants with me back in the 1970s. >> and this is my mom, linda, painting the stairs that would become the center point of our lives. as kids, it's so easy to forget that our mothers' lives started before we were ever in them. to help us remember, one woman is using instagram to collect old photos like these and the stories behind them all year long. in our "sunday closer," a new way to pay honorable ang-- pay homage to your mom by remembering who she was before she became mom. they're the every day heroes whose stories retirely get told. >> -- rarely get told. >> before my mom was a mom, she was an artist. she was super carefree. >> ambitious, young career woman. >> they're our mothers. what's going on with the
glasses, mom? >> watching -- >> reporter: >> over the past years, novelist eden la pucky has received hundreds of photos like these showing moms before they were moms, sent in by daughters across the country. >> every daughter i know is interested in old photos of their parents. it's almost like a time capsule. >> as the founder of the instagram project, "mothers before," she collects and shares these women's stories with her more than 18,000 followers. >> i think as kids we often kind of forget that our parents are human. this project requires us to see these women and remember, hey, you're not the only thing on this timeline. like before you came along, i was riding in airplanes and going horseback riding. i was like posing like pat benetar on the stairwell, and you were not even in the picture. >> think of it as a history project with each submission adding to an online gallery of mothers as their children never saw them. >> this is my mom, kay hair
tang. this is a photo of her chilling on a boat. >> that's anna who wrote this about her mom and business partner, kay -- >> this woman is my hero. she moved from south korea to the states at age 13, joined the army right out of high school, traveled all around europe, learned new languages. this is photo evidence of why she was and is so loved by everyone who meets her. >> you know, as a mother, that's the highest compliment you could ever receive, right. yeah. i was very touched. >> my own mom, linda -- well, before she had my oldest brother, she was a bathing beauty with a flair for adventure. this is my mom on her honeymoon about to go parasailing. and man, i saw this picture, and i'm just like, my mom's hot. and there's so much life behind this picture even in black and white. >> i just was too skinny, too tall. i hated being tall at the time. >> too tall, too skinny, uh. >> in hindsight, i should have played it up more. >> and then there's paria, whose
mother fariba is seen here blissful on her wedding day, years before the iranian revolution tore through her homeland. >> i look at them and think, oh, you have your whole lives planned. and i had no idea what was going to happen. >> for daughters like emma whose mother betsy passed away when she was just 8 years old -- >> this is a photo of my mom for her college graduation. >> photos like these are more like answers to the questions she never got to ask. >> because i don't know so much about her life from her own words, the photos are really great windows into the past. give it you a lot of clues if you look close enough. >> moments captured sometime before me became mom now brought to life on social media by the children they raised. >> that is such a cool idea. it's called "mothers before" on instagram. by the way, calvin said some -- sent something over for you. >> calvin. thank you. these are beautiful. >> he called it in this morning.
calvin thought so. >> i love it. thanks, cal. >> should be home in a minute. this week we highlight another life well lived. movie stars and directors get the glory in hollywood, of course, but they'd all tell you they are nothing without a good film editor. and there have been few better than anne coates. coates started out in her native great britain as a surgical nurse at a hospital for men wounded in world war ii. what she really wanted was to work on the kind of movies she had fallen in love with at the theater in her hometown. coates ran a projector at first, then learned to edit as an assistant in the cutting room at her uncle's pinewood studios outside london. she proved herself at a time when there were precious few opportunities for women in film beyond hairdressing which didn't interest her a bit. coates won an oscar in 1963 for her editing of "lawrence of arabia," which included a famous single cut from a match to a sunrise that steven spielberg
says helped to inspire him to get into filmmaking. over a six-decade career, coates was nominated for an oscar four more times. her movies include "beckett," murder on the orient express," "the elephant man," "erin brockovich," and even "50 shades of gray." anne coates, a trailblazing talents in hollywood, died this week in woodland hills, california. she was 92 years old. ♪ hey allergy muddlers: are you one sneeze away from being voted out of the carpool? try zyrtec® zyrtec® starts working hard at hour one and works twice as hard when you take it again the next day. stick with zyrtec®. muddle no more®. and try children's zyrtec® for consistently powerful relief of your kid's allergies. >> vo: they want more out of life in every way.
