7:04 am
bleeding badly from a facelift when they met in florida just after christmas. scarborough and brzezinski responding in t"the washington post" this morning under the headline, "donald trump is not well." they say the president lied about what happened at mar-a-lago. >> nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning. the president is used to being criticized for his tweets but what's different this time is the ferocity of response from republicans, some of them practically begging him to knock it off, others calling his comments, quote, not normal or beneath the dignity of his office. >> i'm fine. my family brought me up really tough. but i am very concerned as to what this once again reveals about the president of the united states. >> reporter: the hosts of "morning joe" say the president's twitter attack reflects a disturbing pattern of behavior. >> he for some reason takes things so much more personally with women.
7:05 am
he's so much more vicious with women. he always goes after mika and it's always personal about mika, and he packed about five lies into the tweets. >> reporter: on capitol hill yesterday the reaction to mr. trump's tweets was swift and bipartisan. >> tweets like are this inconsistent with the greatness of the country. >> he demeans women and more than that he has demeaned himself. >> reporter: more than 50 lawmakers took to twitter themselves. republicans asking the president to stop it, saying his comments don't help our national dialo e dialogue, urging him to model decency and respect in the wake of the shooting of gop congressman steve scalise. >> believe me, she would not be my first choice. >> reporter: during the campaign, mr. trump mocked women who accused him of sexual harassment and attacked looks of both his female opponents, carly fiorina and hillary clinton. susan collins says he's an equal opportunity insulter. >> all of us get frustrated at
7:06 am
times but that doesn't mean that we should strike out with language that really is not befitting a public official. >> reporter: more than one lawmaker noted that mrs. trump has chosen cyber bullying as a cause. in november she was asked about her husband's twitter habits on "60 minutes." >> you never say to him, come on. >> i did. >> she does. >> of course i did. >> reporter: but on thursday the first lady defended her husband saying, when he gets attacked he will punch back ten times harder. >> reporter: the hosts of "morning joe" say beyond the vulgarity of president trump's comments he also lied about their encounters with him. they say they never met with him three times at mar-a-lago as he claims and they add that mika brzezinski had not had a facelift before that meeting. >> cord kor, thank you. we'll hear from the president again this morning after another round of talks with the new leader of south korea.
7:07 am
president moon jai ae-in and hi wife had dinner with president trump last night. >> reporter: the u.s. and south korea want to demonstrate. trump held an evening strategy session with newly elected south korean president moon to discuss the threat posed by nuclear armed north korea. >> i know you've been discussing with our people some of the complexities of north korea and trade and other things and we'll be discussing them all. >> reporter: but the allies have different views on how to deal with pyongyang. president moon favors diplomacy while mr. trump is already ratchetting up the pressure on kim jong-un's regime. >> it's clear that we can't repeat the same approach, failed approach of the past. >> reporter: h.r. mcmaster
7:08 am
described that threat as too immediate to consider lengthy negotiations. >> so the president has directed us not to do that and to prepare a range of options including a military option, which nobody wants to take. >> reporter: treasury secretary steve mnuchin announced new sanctions thursday against a chinese bank that he accused of laundering money for north korea. the u.s. is hoping to make it too costly for kim jong-un to continue his nuclear and missile programs. and with three americans still being held in north korea, secretary of state rex tillerson is considering banning travel there by u.s. citizens. but white house aides have torpedoed tillerson's picks for top state department jobs including his choice to lead the team of diplomats handling north korea. out of 188 state department posts requiring senate confirmation, only 23 ambassadors have been nominated and six confirmed. frustration reached a boiling point here at the white house last friday. according to one aide, tillerson had a, quote, spirited exchange
7:09 am
in a meeting with chief of staff reince priebus and jared kushner about those delays. now, the secretary will participate in the president's meeting today with the south korean leader. the two will make statements in a few minutes but they are not expected to take any questions, gayle. >> okay. margaret, that phrase spirited exchange. think about that for a second. next week, big week for president trump, who's meeting with vladimir putin for the first time nose to nose at the g-20 summit. what are you expecting? >> reporter: that could be a spirited exchange. russia sees this as an opportunity to rebuild relss from this cold war era low. it's also potentially the first time mr. trump could confront vladimir putin about his country's meddling in the 2016 election. but we know from the president's national security adviser h.r. mcmaster that there's no agenda. he said, quote, it will be whatever the president wants to talk about.
7:10 am
we don't know. will he press russia to stop propping up bashar al assad and its military interference in ukraine? we don't know. it happens in the middle of this ongoing fbi probe in the contact between russian officials and trump campaign associates. the president denies, of course, any collusion on that front, gayle. >> all right. thank you very much, margaret. the trump administration's revived travel ban is in effect this morning but faces a new legal challenge. some protesters gathered last night at los angeles international airport and other u.s. airports as the partial ban took effect. it limits entry for people from six mostly muslim countries. travelers from those nations must have a close family member in the u.s. or be coming here for school or a job. kris van cleave is at dulles the international airport outside washington with how a definition
7:11 am
of close family member facing some criticism now. kris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. think back to january and the chaos and confusion that was happening here at dulles and at airports across the country. we're not seeing that this morning. now what we're seeing instead is people with a visa are allowed to come to the u.s., but now there's a legal battle over what continue substitutes bona fide family. >> most muslims feel this isn't the best way to promote peace. >> reporter: the trump administration's new visa rules or so-called travel ban did not prompt the protest at the nation's airports we saw in january. but the executive order's narrow definition of a family is already prompting a legal battle. >> it does affect people. it tears families apart. >> reporter: earlier this week the supreme court partially revived the ban but allows visas to be granted if they have a close familial relationship with someone in the u.s. the state department defined that close relationship as a parent, in-laws, a spouse, a child, or a sibling, and late last night the government added
7:12 am
fiance. but brothers and as i remembers in law, grandparents, grandchildren, aunts and uncles are not considered by the government to be close. the state department is defending that decision. >> we received the family definition from federal law and we received the family definition and for whatever reason it doesn't include grandparents, but we were going along with what federal law states. >> i was raised by my grandparents, so the idea of grandparents not being part of a family is very foreign to me. >> reporter: last night hawaii asked a district judge to stop enforcing the ban and to clearly state what makes a bona fide relationship. civil liberties groups say they are anticipating further legal challenges. >> we feel like we're going to keep winning to be honest and we're not going to get sick of winning. >> reporter: there are other exceptions to the executive order that include people with direct business ties to the u.s., journalists, adopted children, and people seeking urgent medical attention here in the u.s.
7:13 am
the supreme court is set to hear arguments on this new executive order in the fall. david? >> thanks. iraq's prime minister has declared an end to the islamic state's so-called caliphate and in syria, the last remaining isis fighters in raqqah are surrounded by u.s.-backed forces. holly williams traveled to a raqqah village where she met men and women who fell under the influence of isis and joined the group. he is the in northern syria with what life is like inside isis. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. america's anti-isis envoy bret mcguirk said this week the u.s. mission in syria is to make sure all foreign isis fighters still in raqqah die in raqqah. but we've been meeting with a group of former isis fighters who either defected or were captured. some were men, others just teenagers. all of them served time in prison for fighting with isis and have now been released and
7:14 am
reunited with their families. america's allies on the ground here in syria say they've been reformed. al baghdadi and others led a reign of terror, a vicious interpretation of islam unrecognizable to the vast majority of muslims. but ali hamed, a former fighter, said he joined isis not because he wanted to kill in the name of his religion but out of desperation. we were hungry, he told us, and there were no job opportunities. tens of thousands wer fleeing raqqah as they close in on the extremists. at a refugee camp these indonesian women told us they joined isis in 2015 traveling 5,000 miles because they believed isis propaganda. >> if you go there, you move to their place, you go to the paradise because you are the real muslim. >> reporter: in reality they told us they were abused and the male relatives imprisoned by the
7:15 am
extremists because they refused to fight. they ran away two weeks ago they said and are too frightened of retribution from isis to show their faces. >> reporter: isis and its so-called islamic state prey on poverty and ignorance. they claim to be waging a holy war against the west. in truth, they've inflicted terrible harm on muslims. norah? >> great reporting, holly williams in syria. thank you. a manhunt is underway for a suspect who killed a recent high school graduate in a suspected road rage attack. 18-year-old bianca roberson was shot in the head just before her car veered off a road in the philadelphia suburb. anne-marie green is following the hunt for the killer. >> reporter: recent high school graduate and honor roll student 18-year-old bianca nicole roberson was on her way home when police say she encountered
7:16 am
nother driver on the road. >> another car, a red pickup truck, merged in at the same time, and the man in the red pickup truck pulled out a gun and shot her in the head, killing her. this is now a murder case. >> reporter: police in pennsylvania say they're looking for a white male driving a red pickup truck seen here in this blurry traffic camera image. >> so that man who fired the shot, turn yourself in now. >> reporter: roberson graduated from high school two weeks ago and had plans to attend college in the fall. >> she was a good girl, honor roll student looking forward to going to college. >> reporter: investigators say roberson's car hit a tree shortly after leaving the road and that the incident was a random sense of violence. >> if he's doing this in a moving vehicle or just to be first in line at merger, i mean, i just can't fathom what would bring someone to that. >> reporter: well, officials say
7:17 am
counselors will be available at the high school where she just graduated offering to help students deal with this sudden loss. david? >> okay. anne-marie, thanks so much. a high-speed chase came to a dramatic end in an indiana cornfield. it started in louisville, kentucky, where the driver was wanted in a string of purse robberies. police with guns swarmed the red pickup when it finally ended in the field. pretty dramatic footage in the cornfield in indiana. the holiday weekend could set new travel records. trip a estimates at least 44 million people would travel 50 niles from home, including me. that would be the busiest independence day travel weekend ever. travel editor peter greenberg is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the airports. what should people expect? >> slower times. as they phase in the new security rule, be prepared, secondary screening. not just the conveyor belt but a secretary screening at the gates
7:18 am
where they'll actually ask you to take out your computer again maybe and turn it on. >> what about the people behind the scenes loading on the baggage or putting on the food? >> that's what they're talking about. they're going to start vetting more the catering trucks. the guys who drive the truck, the rampers, even as far back as the catering facility before they even get to the airport because once they lock up those catering trucks it goes right to the plane. >> does this apply domestically as well as internationally, as a practical matter? >> absolutely. all the airlines affected by the laptop ban can get out of that ban by performing these sorts of screening service s gas prices haven't been this low since 2005. how does that affect travel? >> 37.5 million people will be on the road, you too. that's great. when you're dealing with gas prices around $2 a gallon, that's a great deal. yes, more people on the road. keep in mind, gallup reports 47% of u.s. adults are less likely to want to travel overseas right now. as a result, you have a global
7:19 am
buyers market in travel. meaning foreign airlines increasing their capacity at 61%. never at this time of the year. coach air fares down 23% over last year and international fares ridiculous. a friend of mind weekend to ireland from los angeles. what do you think the price was? >> $300? >> $130. haw of supply and demand, now is the time to do it. >> i'm glad to know you have friends. >> what was that? >> that was a lit cold. >> should i give up my number? thank you, peter. always good to see you. >> thank you, gayle. we have to go to something serious. police say venus williams is at fault in a car crash that led to a man's death.

david begnaud spoke with the girl's father in del city, a suburb of oklahoma city. >> reporter: good morning. it happened in this backyard. the family had it all set up. the father put this tent as a decoy and had this camera right here as it was rolling so it would capture the moment the man walked into the backyard. earlier that day the dad had gone to the police and said, hey, here are the explicit messages that the man was exchanging with my daughter. then he got word he was coming to the family home that night and he said i have to do something so he got a wife and a few of husband kiss suns and set up a family sting operation. when jeremy gibson arrived at this home around 12:30 last thursday morning he probably didn't expect this surprise. he was tackled the ground and had his hands and feet zip tied. the teenage girl he thought was in that tent turned out to be a grown woman. did you have any trepidation someone might get hurt in all this? >> the thought did cross my mind, yes, very much so. but the situation outweighed
7:45 am
though thoughts. >> reporter: the father, who asked us not to reveal his name, says gibson recently began sending facebook messages and nude pictures to his daughter. do you think he knew she was 15? >> yes, i do. >> do you think your daughter under what she was opening herself up to? >> i don't think she did. i do think she does now. >> reporter: the dad said he was tipped off to his daughter's online chats through an app he was using called family time. that enabled him to monitor his daughter's cell phone. >> he was messaging her and encouraging her to meet him, kind of setting up a situation where she would lose her virginity with him. >> reporter: so this dad filed a police report. but late they're day he saw messages indicating gibson was meeting his daughter at the family's house that night. so he hatched a plan. essentially you made a citizen's arrest. >> correct. >> what did you tell him? >> he stepped into the wrong backyard. >> he was charged one count of using technology to engage a minor in sexual relations.
7:46 am
did it without hrming him or leaving any marks on him. >> reporter: he said the family operation was, quote, almost profession professional. >> we never encourage people to take the law into their own hands. >> if i wasn't involved as i am, i don't know when i would have caught this. that scares me, not just for my children and my family but for other children and other families. >> reporter: jeremy gibson is out of jail this morning. he bounded out. we sent a producer to his house and called him but couldn't reach him. it's worth noting the suspect was saying he was coming here and going to the tent to show the girl the error of her ways. the father doesn't believe that. i do want you to know the dad said i wasn't trying to hurt this guy. once they tackled him, he said i gave up and said that's it. the dad said i just wanted to stop him and turn him over to the police. >> you know who else doesn't believe mr. gibson? anybody listening to you talk right now. he wants to show her the error of her ways. how creepy you're going to her house knowing she's going to be in the tent.
7:47 am
knowing she's 15. go, dad. i like that dad. i like family time app too. nicely done. police say do not try that but it worked that time. a futuristic plan to deliver internet service is taking flight. ahead, a breakthrough in fate book to connect drones to people in most remote places on earth. and we'll hear from woman who kept her pregnancy a secret from her husband when he was deployed overseas for six months. was it a good idea or not? >> there was disagreement at the table. >> i would not like it if my wife did that. >> news flash, your wife would never do that.

i'm gayle king. he's co-anchor of bloomberg network. sorry about that david. president trump is getting bipartisan backlash for a pair of tweets insulting them. the show speaks badly of them and he called them low i.q. crazy mika and psycho joe and also claimed she was bleeding badly from a facebook during her visit on new year's eve. they both say that's a lie. >> it's been fascinating and frightening and really sad for our country. i've been getting a lot of texts and hearing you all talking. thank you. i'm fine. my family brought me up really tough. this is absolutely nothing but for me personally. but i am very concerned as to what this once again reveals about the president of the united states. >> unfortunately we learned what
8:03 am
we have always learned and that is that he for some reason takes things so much more personally with women. >> the president's tweets were widely condemned on capitol hill. members of his own party said the tweets were unpresidential. >> when you are president of the united states it's beneath your dignity to launch those kinds of attacks. >> it's a distraction and it really ultimately starts to undermine the president's ability to get his agenda done. >> at a white house briefing, deputy press secretary sarah huckabee sanders defended the president's tweets saying he faces constant criticism. >> i think that the president is pushing back against people who attack him day after day after day. where is the outrage on that. >> sanders said the president will fight fire with fire. >> in the middle of the outcry over his tweets the president has serious business to do with the new leader of south korea.
8:04 am
mr. trump shoelding a second day of meetings at the white house. they're working on a joint policy dealing with the nuclear threat from north korea. he's the founder and president of a global political risk consultant company. good to have you on the program. >> sure. >> we learn at a there seems to be a some what different approach to dealing with north korea between president trump and president moon. what is a win for the two of them? >> getting through. this is not an easy meeting like it was when prime minister modi came in early in the week. south korea before the impeachment of president park was getting squeezed with heavy sanctions from china because they were working more closely with the united states on north korea, supporting this bad missile defense system. now this new opposition liberal opposition party leader president moon that's just been elected he says i want to talk to the north koreans. he is more interested in the
8:05 am
sunshine policy and he absolutely wants to push back on the americans so that the china economic relationship can go well again. it's incredibly hard for him to balance these things. >> i'm so glad you're here. some people are distracted with other stuff that is going on this is incredibly consequential and something happened. there was a big white house meeting. this president is about to impose tariffs as high as 20% on china and other countries for steel. what will that mean? >> that is in the context of what had been the single best meeting for trump in foreign relations since he became president. in the last few days we now have yesterday's sanctions against the chinese bank. to individual and corporation because of engagement with north korea. that's new. we have the intention of putting steel sanctions against the will of a lot of the cabinet.
8:06 am
against a lot of countries. most importantly china. we have the new $1.4 billion military deal which in the last 24 hours the chinese have strongly protested against. all the while the north korea relationship is going to be the worst. south korea is in the most challenging geopolitical situation now of any developed country in the world. what a time for president moon to be here in washington. >> how does that effect them dealing with north korea? >> it's going to make it much harder. what we know is that over the last 20 years we had a series of democratic and republican presidents that have seen north korea has too challenging. let's pass it off to our children. now they have more nukes, they have more advanced cyber capabilities and missile capabilities and trump is saying i'm going to do something about this. the good news is because trump doesn't really care about human rights his ability to work with the north koreans and say i want to cut a deal and if he did, frankly he would get more but
8:07 am
that's a possibility that we end up with a direct confrontation with the north koreans and before either of those happen they're going to start to break. >> i can't stop thinking about the death, all of this it's so tragic to anybody that knows this story. does that effect the strategy at all in north korea? >> not really. >> change the stakes at all. >> otto's father was extraordinary in the way he spoke to the american people and the press following this tragedy but it's interesting to see that trump himself and the white house didn't use it to say we're coming after these guys hard. there's a door open for direct meetings between united states and north korea, that's interesting. >> who has the lead here? it's six party talks, six nations dealing with north korea. serge going to go their own way now? does south korea or china?
8:08 am
>> the chinese have been doing more with the americans on north korea. at part because trump had already been elected. they did cut back on the coal purchasing for north corey yachlt they did shutdown direct air china flights but that's not anywhere near enough to force the north koreans to the table. at this point now the americans are taking the lead. >> we have to get to russia. >> the summit next week. what are you looking for? what do you think the strategy will be there on both sides? >> well, look i think that this is going to be more of a media event. trump has now met with every major leader in the world except putin. and it's -- this is the big wind upright? because this is the one that no one wants him to do. we're going to watch the body language and see if they're smiling. the media is going to go nuts. john mccain and lindsey graham.
8:09 am
>> the president has no agenda. is that appropriate for them to say that. if they said he had an agenda no one was going to believe it or focus on it anyway. >> but does vladimir putin have an agenda? >> his agenda is to undermine the transatlantic relationship and approximate it's middle east and he's been effective at that but ultimately the scale of these investigations which are now very seriously lawyered up which means they feel like they have a lot to go on that's constraining the ability of the united states to do anything with russia. if he did believe trump was actually good for him he has to be considering it. >> all right. thank you. >> we love it when you come to the table. thank you. princess diana's family will gather to remember her tomorrow. it's been nearly 20 years since she died. the ways diana's sons are coping with the
