7:02 am
the man who held themostage is dead as well. >> physically and emotionally draining. >> chief economic adviser larry kudlow suffered a heart attack. >> in good condition and expected to make a full recovery. >> all that. >> a cheeky adolescent humpback put on a show. >> and all that matters. >> the images from singapore brought the former detroit pistons bad boy dennis rodman to tears. >> today is a great day for everybody. singapore, tokyo, china. it's a great day. >> on "cbs this morning." >> that summit happening on kind of a resort island called sentosa where university studios singapore is located right across the street. >> the negotiations were closed to the press but they have released this picture. okay. they're having a good time. we're on the brink of world war whee! >> this morning's eye opener is go places.
7:03 am
>> history in the making today. it all happened while many people were sleeping. >> not us. >> not us. >> we've got it all covered for you. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump and north korean dictator kim jong-un finished an unprecedented meeting in singapore with a deal to start denuclearizing the korean peninsula. >> we're very proud of what took place today. i think our whole relationship with north korea and a korean peninsula is going to be very much different situation than it has in the past. >> the two leaders signed what mr. trump called a comprehensive document detailing what he said was a commitment to establish relations. >> it offered few specifics on how north korea's nuclear arsenal will be removed. the summit, which lasted less than five hours, was the first between a sitting u.s. president and a north korean leader.
7:04 am
>> president trump said it would lead to many more meetings and he would absolutely consider, he says, inviting kim to the whi house. "cbs evening news" anchor glor is leading our coverage from singapore where the president left a short time ago. jeff, good morning. what a day. >> indeed, gayle, good morning to you. good evening here from singapore. the president said he did everything he could at the summit and that's why he is headed back to the u.s. a little earlier than planned. now, while the president and kim jong-un here agreed to work toward denuclearization in exchange for security assurances from the u.s., they did not establish a timetable to meet that goal. could be potentially anywhere from 3 to 15 years folks say for denuclearization of the peninsula if it happens. there was also no mention in the agreement of human rights abuses committed by the kim regime. and no specifics on how the deal would get done. that id there is this signed document this was the first time
7:05 am
a sitting u.s. president has met with the leader of north korea. there were these handshakes. major garrett is on sentosa island, the site of today's historic summit, with more on the president's plan moving forward. major, good morning. >> good morning. summit images from this opulent island hotel were in every way historic. the agreements reached somewhat more vague. and that's important considering north korea's checkered history of living up to agreements made with the united states. even so, president trump says there is now a real chance for peace, denuclearization and a brand-new relationship. why? because the president said he now trusts kim jong-un and knows that he wants to make a deal. more summits appear inevitable. the president said he's open to traveling to the north korean capital of pyongyang and inviting kim to the white house. >> the letter that we're signing is very comprehensivcomprehensi >> president trump and north korean leader kim jong-un signed a joint statement seeking a new
7:06 am
relationship, a process to bring peace to the two koreas and for the north to, quote, work toward complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. >> mr. president, the joint statement does not talk about verifiable or irreversible denuclearization. is that a concession on the part of the united states? >> no, not at all, because if you look at it, i mean it said we are going to -- let's see here, it will be gone -- i don't think you can be any more plain than what we're asking. >> we asked about verifying north korean compliance. >> well, it's going to be achieved by having a lot of people there. as we develop a certain trust and we think we have done that. >> those people be americans or international -- >> combinations of both. combinations of both. and we have talked about it, yes. >> the day began with never before seen images of a sitting american president repeatedly shaking hands with the leader of a legendarily oppressive and militarized regime. kim jong-un appeared to grasp
7:07 am
the enormity of the moment, telling the president it was like a scene from a science fiction movie. last year's chest humping and insults hurled between the two leaders were a distant memory. replaced by am meable looks and chats. >> we will have a terrific relationship, i have no doubt. >> reporter: seated alone with interpreters only, kim told reporters the two countries had overcome the obstacles and prejudices of the past. later, in a meeting that included the leaders' aides, president trump said he was confident the two sides would make progress. >> i look forward to doing this. >> the president says north korea possesses a sizable nuclear arsenal and kim knows much about it. despite the facts the north koreans have taken no aggressive
7:08 am
steps to dismantle that arsenal, the president said now is the time to end joint military exercises, u.s. and south korea. the president said they're expensive and in this atmosphere of good will, jeff, he said they are, quote, inappropriate. >> major, what the president called war games, president trump has said in the past that taking nuclear weapons out of north korea could happen very quickly. this morning, he acknowledged it could take a long time. ben tracy is here now in singapore, looking at how this process might work. which, again, could be a long one. ben, good morning. >> jeff, good morning. so dismantling north korea's vast nuclear arsenal would be one of the most challenging attempts at nuclear disarmament in history. the first step would be finding out what they have and where they have it. exs k h ough material for up to 30 nuclear weapons. and there are more than 100
7:09 am
sites spread throughout the country that inspectors want to access. including yongbyon, the nation's sprawling atomic complex about 50 miles frompyongyang. the site covered nearly three square miles, containing hundreds of buildings. >> the number one thing that u.s. officials would want is to physically inspect a warhead. >> reporter: melissa hanham is an expert on the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. she says warheads would reveal valuable information about the design and advancement of north korea's program. the u.s. wants every nuclear weapon destroyed and the parts shipped to a lab in tennessee. that process alone could take up to ten years. >> and then you would have to search all the rest of north korea to make sure there was nothing that they did not declare. >> reporter: last month, north korea claimed to destroy its main nuclear testing site built deep inside a remote mountain
7:10 am
complex. this is the access to tunnel number two here at north korea's nuclear test sites. this is where they have conducted five of their six neek tests over the past couple of years. we were a part of a small group of journalists in allowed to witness what the north koreans said was a show of good faith. there are no outside experts that can verify what they've done here has made this site inusable. verification by trained experts would be crucial. and inspections would be needed for decades to make sure north korea doesn't cheat. >> with north korea, the game is always sort of open. you're never 100% sure. so that may not happen in a long time. >> now, even in all of north korea's nuclear weapons were destroyed tomorrow, they would still have plenty of missiles and ammunition that could devastate nearby south korea and japan, not to mention their stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. jeff. >> ben tracy, thank you very much. kim jong-un said this seemed to
7:11 am
be a scene from a movie. trump, kim part 1 has now left town. we all wait to see what the sequel is. we're going to have much more coverage from singapore in our next hour. but for now, let's go back to john in new york. >> all right, jeff glor in si singapo singapore, thank you, very much. president trump says his meeting with kim jong-un would not have happened if not for the death of otto warmbier. north korea released the college student from ohio one year ago tomorrow. he had been detained for 17 months over an alleged theft. >> i really think that otto is someone who did not die in vain. i told this to his parents. special young man. and i have to say special parents, special people. otto did not die in vain. he had a lot to do with us being here today. >> the president helped secure wa warmbier's release. 292-year-old returned home in a
7:12 am
coma and died less than a week later. at the time, trump condemned what he called the brutality of the north korean regime. >> the first global reaction came from south korean president moon jae-in. offering sincere congratulations and said his country will, quote, write a new history of peace with north korea. moon watched the live broadcast from his presidential office. other people in south korea gathered to watch in public spaces like train stations. china's foreign minister said trump and kim jong-un are creating a new history. his spokesman suggested sanctions relief for north korea. japan's prime minister called the summit a step in the right direction. he also said japan wants a verifiable plan to remove north korea's nukes. >> margaret brennan is here wit. president trump said today he didn't give up anything.
7:13 am
yet he said he would suspend joint military exercises with south koreans. south koreans responded by saying we're trying to figure out exactly what trump meant. >> it's tremendous to have the south koreans say this. because they are our partners, our allies, in those military exercises. the pentagon has also said is this a halt, a suspension, an end? there's so many details we don't know in terms of this nebulous security guarantee that's mentioned here in this statement. does it go beyond that right? the president has at least three times been asked by reporters since that press conference what else did you promise in terms of security guarantees and he will not go into it. it's going to be up to mike pompeo who's flying to china and south korea to explain. >> to work out the details. ian, the united states has made agreements with north korea in the past. 1994, 2005, 2012. the north koreans have this great strategy. they string us along. and then it's just talk and they continue their nuclear weapons program. why should we believe them now?
7:14 am
>> we shouldn't believe them. it's a little surprising to see trump say i trust the guy. it's more a stronger formulation than bush looking into putin's eyes and saying i saw a soul. might live to regret that. kim jong-un is a younger leader focusing more on the economic engagement and the openness he's done over the course of the past few months with the south koreans summit twice now with the south korean president, twice with xi jinping, once with the pyongyang and now trump. that's the story, the north koreans are opening up and trump is appeasing them. let's keep in mind what we now have is a freeze for freeze. the north koreans are freezing their icbm and nuclear tests and the americans are freezing our military exercises with the south koreans. that is exactly the formations the chinese have asked for over the course of the past year and we said absolutely not. >> let me ask you about this key question of denuclearization. in the agreement as i read it, it is just a reaffirmation of point number three, a reaffirmation of a previous
7:15 am
promise that the north koreans have made to work towards the crucial, working towards as opposed to agreeing to. so put that in context for us. what exactly was agreed to here that the north koreans have not already previously agreed to on nukes? >> we know what the president said is they've started to break apart some of their missiles. that's part of the irreversible steps he wanted to see. secretary state mike pompeo's flying to the east asian capital to explain what happened in the room, but he's going to have to brief congress. there's going to be a lot of questions about what exactly that means. i think one of the interesting things is if you take a step back, it took two years of direct talks with iran to get them to ship out 97% of their enriched uranium and halt their program. and they didn't have anything like the arsenal we know and believe north korea has. and secretary of state mike pompeo raised holy hell about that deal. so he has set for himself a tremendous benchmark. as has president trump in terms of what they now need to get in
7:16 am
terms of details. actual american inspectors on the ground. we know that's what america wants. we don't know if that's what got agreed to in this room. we know that's what john bolton has said. we wants american inspectors to be taking the lead to break apart these weapons so that it doesn't happen again, so they don't cheat like they have in the past. >> what stood out to both of you in this agreement we reached today? is there a win for both sides? >> i think the biggest win is that six months ago, we were talking about the possibility of military preemption against north korea. it's almost inconceivable now there's a short-term risk of military conflict. that's a win for the north korea and the south korea people. but also trump has gotten this historic summit. he did get the chinese to squeeze the north koreans harder on sanctions. the north koreans came to the table. before trump started that, the only foreign leader kim jong-un hassed me wi ed mmet with was d. as margaret suggested, it's a
7:17 am
very high bar to go from here to complete verifiable denuclearization. the north koreans didn't take any concrete step toward that yesterday. >> one thing the president dangled today was the removing of some 30,000 u.s. troops that have been in the korean peninsula. i lived there as a kid. this is a long time we've had a commitment to that area. if we were to remove troops from the korean peninsula. it doesn't just affect the korean peninsula it affects our entire military strategic posture in asia, doesn't it? isn't that really what china wants? >> and this is exactly, not only what eian highlighted in terms f the freeze for freeze language, this is what china wants. north korea isn't the only flash point in asia. there's concerns about clashes in the south china sea. and moon jae-in, he was very concerned about the ratcheting up of military tensions. he pulled off the coup of getting the south korean intelligence officers into the oval office back in march to
7:18 am
brief the president. the president said today this is interesting, i've had a relationship with kim jong-un for about 90 days. that takes you back to march. he hasn't said if he's spoken to him before. >> you think they've talked on the phone? >> it seems to me that's what he may be dancing around. we've had a relationship for 90 days. that's when he was saying i trust him. >> what about the personal chemistry between the two? they both seem to enjoy this photo op, the way that they touched each other, the way that they smiled at each other. really personal name calling that wasn't so long ago. >> look, you remember the way that the north korean leader, his father, was portrayed, in "team america," i'm so lonely. both trump and kim are leaders that clearly really want some legitimization. they want to be treated well. i would just say the most important takeaway here long term is that the united states is probably going to be a much more marginal player at the end of the day in this region. >> wow.
7:19 am
>> in the same way that syria kind of defined the obama administration, he ultimately wasn't the major player on the ground, that's kind of what we're seeing here. china's a big winner. >> much more to talk about. thank you so much. in our next hour, we'll talk with republican senator lindsey graham about the summit and how the president can get north korea to follow through. and we still have much more news ahead this morning, including two popular suvs that did not score well on the newest crash tests. information you need to know ahead by the insurance institute for highway safety. you may want to think twice good morning. the sun is bright in the bay area and we have sunshine over oakland with warriors parade day. time to celebrate. the afternoon highs, 72 in redwood city, 90s in concord and

the summit in singapore was kicked off with this historic mome moment. the first time a u.s. president has ever met in person with a north korean dictator. of course this reclusive spot now on the world stage with -- historic despot on the world stage with the president of the united states. this happened at 1:00 eastern standard time last night before they sat down for extensive talks. as we talked about north korea and the hermit kingdom in the past, last night we heard for first time the voice of kim jong-un. listen.
7:31 am
>> would you like to say something? [ speaking native language ] lived in korea, so i can't do a quick translation. he's a young man with a deep voice. we know he smokes a lot of cigarettes. >> they say he's 34 years old. he said it took a while to get here, but they're both looking forward, they said. i happened to see dennis rodman last night on chris cuomo's show. dennis rodman is probably the only one on the plannett who knows both -- planet who knows both of them. when he was asked does he speak english, he said, well -- he didn't answer outright. he said when it comes to basketball he speaks english. >> a fan of american pop culture. >> certainly basketball. he wouldn't say whether he speaks english or not. >> that image amazing, the flags next to each other. quite an achievement for president trump to have this
7:32 am
meeting take place after the threats and discussion of -- >> and name-calling. >> a huge achievement for north korean leader kim jong-un to have parity with the united states president. the handshakes between powerful countries. north korea is in peril economically. and the united states and most cups of the west think that north korea is -- most countries of the west think that north korea is run by a dictator who is a human rights abuser and abuse his own people. the pictures of the american flag next to the north korean flag is a striking victory for kim jong-un. >> more than 100,000 people in gulags, torching them, one of the most atrocious human rights records in the world. >> in the green room, said it didn't start as a meeting of equals, but it ended as a meeting of equals when you look at the optics, the flags side by side. standing there together. welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things to know this morning -- president trump says north korea will return the
7:33 am
remains of u.s. prisoners of war and those missing in action during the korean war. the joint statement signed by the president and kim jong-un this morning in singapore commits the north to the recovery of the marines. thousands of u.s. troops from the korean war are still unaccounted for 65 years later. a federal judge could decide today if at&t can take over time-warner. the department of justice is seeing to block the $85 billion deal arguing it would hurt competition. regulators say it would give at&t unlawful power to restrict access to cable channels and increase costs for consumers. at&t claims the deal will improve competition with streaming services and benefit consumers. the landmark trial could influence future media mergers. and george h.w. bush becomes the first u.s. president to celebrate his 94th birthday today. mr. bush is at home with family and friends in maine after a recent hospital stay to treat

low blood pressure. he said he wants a low-key day and no presents. his late wife, former first lady barbara bush, would have turned 93 last friday. we wish the president a very happy birthday. >> that's right. >> he used to celebrate them by jumping out of airplanes. >> i remember that. >> well into his -- >> now he'll sport fun socks as he likes to do. >> exactly. new, crash tests on two popular suvs reveal serious safety concerns. the insurance institute for highway safety gave the 2018 ford explorer and jeep grand cherokee poor ratings in front-passenger crash tests. the tests showed protections built into the driver's side aren't necessarily there for front seat passengers. the agency tested eight suvs. only three of them earned the top score of good. three others were rated acceptable. kris van kleave is in washington with the eye-opening results. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this crash test focuses on what
7:35 am
happens when one part of the front end hits something at 40 miles per hour. it's estimated 25% of the serious injuries and deaths that result from front-end crashes come out of these kind of accidents. the 2018 ford explorer rated poor because its structure collapsed, intruding as much as 15 inches into the suv, resulting in a high likelihood of injuries to the front passenger's right hip and left lower leg. ford insists the explorer is safe saying, "we continually make improvements to our vehicles to help our customers say safe on the road." david zubey is the insurance institute for highway safety's instructor -- >> we see the designer changes that automakers were making o e drer'side wer't necessarily making themselves to >> rte wch the pasnger side crash dummy's head when the 2018 jeep grand cherokee crashes. it hits the dashboard three the airbag. the side airbag does not deploy,

and the door opens, allowing the dummy's head to go outside the suv. the poor performance resulted in possible head injuries. the vehicle's safety cage intruded into the cabin by up to ten inches. fiat chrysler makes the jeep and says all its vehicles meet or exceed federal safety standards and are engineered to address real-world driving situations. no single test measures overall vehicle safety. >> my advice to people shopping for a new vehicle is they've got better choices. >> reporter: the 2019 kia sorento scored good after it was redesigned to better protect passengers. it was the only vehicle of the eight tested to earn the highest rating, top safety pick-plus. both the ford explorer and jeep grand cherokee are older designs. ford tells us it expects its all-new 2020 ford explorer to do better in the test next year. iihs expects the redesigned jeep

baylor st. luke's hospital has stopped a heart transplant program. this follows the departure of several top doctors and unusual number of patient deaths in recent years. two more heart transplant patients died in may. mark strassman is outside the hospital which is now assessing what went wrong. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. heart transplant patients are usually the sickest people in the hospital. if you need a new one, this hospital has always been considered to have one of the world's best programs.
7:42 am
after what experts say have been too many patient deaths, the program's operating rooms have gone dark. >> everybody said it was the best place to go. >> reporter: judy's husband david had one last chance at life. a heart transplant at baylor st. luke's medical center. she claims the surgeon told her the operation in 2017 went well. the 64-year-old needed sixe surgeries over the next week and never woke up before, she says, more bad news -- >> he said, you know, we're gointo have to take this heart out and put an artificial heart in. i said, why? he said, this heart just isn't acting right. >> reporter: they were telling you you're starting over. >> yes, yes. seven days into this. >> reporter: that night, david quiton had a stroke. his wife said she waited half a day before a neurologist would talk to her. >> he confirmed he was
7:43 am
brain-dead. we turned the machines off. >> transplant is an the surgical director. he didn't respond to our request for comment, but he defended himself to propublica saying he told the family that david was critically ill. dr. morgan was hired in 2016 to fix the program. st. luke's one-year survival rate in the year and a half prior was 84.2%, below the national average. they made changes, and the survival rate jumped to 94% by 2017 before plummeting again this year. the hospital performed nine heart transplants in 2018. how many have died?hrsye. orter: that's not a you. >> not at all. >> reporter: ceo doug lawson suspended the program june 1st for a two-week review.
7:44 am
after two transplant patients died in may. >> we're going to look at the total body of work. we're going to look at individual members of the team. >> reporter: the bottom-line question, is there something we did wrong? >> the question we always ask is what could we do better. >> reporter: some st. luke's doctors were so outraged, they left, including debra meyers, firmer director of the st. luke's heart program. in a scathing letter to the hospital president, meyers called the program a "debacle" and barak obama blamed "self-in wounds, appalling administrative oversight, and failure of leadership." >> we have an equal number of professionals who are very committed to the program and feel strongly that we're providing great care. >> reporter: and judy quiton got this anonymous letter two months after her husband died. she believes from someone inside
7:45 am

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is tuesday june 12, 2018. big day in history today. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump expects kim jong-un to move quickly to dismantle his nuclear program. we will talk to lindsey graham about getting kim to follow through on his summit promises. only on "cbs this morning" drug maker mylan ceo and the cheaper plan to help cancer patients. >> president trump and kim jong-un finished an unprecedented meeting with a deal to start denuclearizing the korean peninsula. >> the president and kim jong-un
8:01 am
agreed to de-nuclearization they did not establish a time table. miliry exercises. >> smantlal w one of the most challenging attempts in history. the first step would be finding out what they have and where they have it. >> 1994, 2005, 2012. they string us along. why should we believe them now? >> kim jong-un is a different leader. that is the story. the north koreans are opening up. >> the fashion show where drones were used to showcase these dresses instead of traditional human models. >> a drone fashion show is one of the weirdest things i have ever seen, butf y a t harry potter theme it totally works.
8:02 am
>> i'm john dickerson. they will be wearing that this year. busy, busy morning. we start with president trump and kim jong-un headed home after their busy and historic nuclear summit. the two leaders met face-to-face for the first time and shook hands at 9:04 this morning local time. spoke with optimism before going into a one-on-one meeting for about 40 minutes. mr. trump says he expected a tremendous discussion. kim said the two would overcome old prejudices. >> just before 10:00 a.m. they were joined by advisers for about an hour and a half. that meeting was followed by a working lunch with a menu that included short ribs, shrimp. after lunch mr. trump told reporters they were going to sign something. >> the two leaders emerged about
8:03 am
an hour later and signed an agreement at 1:41 p.m. committing to denuclearizing the korean peninsulpeninsula. cbs evening news anchor leading our coverage from singapore. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. those times you are talking about those were singapore times. a lot of this for americans played out overnight as signing took place. president trump and kim jong-un are heading back now to washington and pyongyang respectively with the agreement to work towards making the korean peninsula nuclear free. i reaffirmed what kim agreed to in april when he met with south korean president moon. mr. trump said it will take a while. >> it takes a long time scientifically you have to wait certain periods of time and a lot of things happen. despite that once you start the
8:04 am
process it means it is pretty much over. can't use them. that's the good news. that will start very soon. >> time table is one of the big questions here if not the big question. major garret is here with a look at u.s. plans to ensure the north koreans follow through and what the trump administration is giving the north. >> good morning. at the tail end of the very long press conference president trump looked down to secretary of state mike pompeo who has the portfolio on de-nuclearization and said make sure you get the details right. yesterday the secretary of state told us the key is verification. while verification details are very hard to find in this underlying joint statement. i asked the president if there would be international inspectors and american inspe inspectors to work on the verification process. he said absolutely. hat is designed to accelerate north korea's proof that it is dismantling the nuclear arsenal. the president also said it is
8:05 am
time now to end joint military exercises between the united states and south korea. o both u.s. forces in south korea said they heard nothing about this and will plan until they hear from the president not to conduct the joint military exercises. the president said there will be more summits and the president said he trusts kim jong-un. those summits could occur in pyongyang, north korean capital or the white house. >> one would think d.o.d. would be informed after the agreement is made. south korea is a different question when they say they are not aware of it. >> when they are both unaware that tells you this happened here and it will be implemented later. >> thanks. when the summit was over south korea's president said the talks will start a new history of peace on the korean peninsula. ben tracy is here in singapore
8:06 am
with more reaction. >> reporter: good morning. we heard from all the major players in the region. we heard from south korea, japan, china and for the most part they are expressing optimism about the outcome of this summit. in his press conference president trump did say he would be calling the leaders and talking about the process for north koreans de-nuclearization specifically south korean president moon. and he appeared to credit moon in part for making the summit happen. we should say he was an essential middle man between the leaders. so far the north koreans people have not heard much. the media reports are focussed on kim jong-un's monday night tour of singapore being characterized as an opportunity for kim to learn from singapore's economic development. we expect that north korean media will have more to say
8:07 am
about the summit itself in the coming hours after couple returns to pyongyang. >> thank you very much. we are going to have much more on the summit tonight when the cbs evening news comes to you live from singapore. for now the crux of it is president trump wanted this summit to happen. kim jong-un wanted this meeting to happen. it happened. the big question is what the process is moving forward. major has talked about that. we will talk much more about that tonight, as well. back to you in new york. >> great coverage there in singapore. thank you. ahd senor ley graha talks with us about the summit deal and the promise of removing north korea's nukes. what does it mean also for our more than 20,000 u.s. troops
8:08 am
8:09 am
8:10 am
a lot of people will be reading the fine print of president trump's agreement with kim jong-un. lindsey graham is one of them. he is with us from washington. we have been talking about this agreement. the president said and i'm quoting him here they meaning north korea have given up a tremendous amount with this agreement. what have they given up? >> nothing yet. this is an agreement in principle.
8:11 am
congratulations to president trump of bringing this about. this is an historic opportunity to end the korean war, get north korea to give up their weapons and missiles that threaten us and the world in return for security guarantees and prosperity. i hope it happens. but there is no agreement. one thing i would tell you is that there is an agreement it must come to congress for our approval. >> i'm confused. the president said they gave up a tremendous amount. you say they haven't given up anything. how do we work our way through that contradiction? >> they promised to give up their nuclear weapons. they have done this twice. why should we consider this different? i think they believe president trump is different in this regard that if they don't give up their weapons we will have a military conflict to end their program. they have two choices, column a is security guarantees and economic incentives to give up your nuclear program. column b is a devastating
8:12 am
conflict mill tarl in which they will lose. president trump has convinced kim jong-un he is safer and more prosperous without nuclear weapons. this is a first step. this is a good start but we are a long ways away from an agreement. >> senator, on that point as the north koreans promise to take steps towards a complete de-nuclearization the president of the united states -- they have done it multiple times before and lied about it. now we have president trump saying he is going to end joint u.s. south korean military exercises. is that a good idea? >> i don't mind putting these exercises on hold. over the arc of time the exercises won't matter. the one thing i would object to violently is withdrawing forces. china's goal for decades has been to drive us out of asia. that is part of a deal i can't support the deal. that will lead to more conflict and not less.
8:13 am
our forces in south korea are stabilizing for asia. they are trying to drive us out of asia, china is. that would be a bad deal. so i hope we don't go down that road. >> i was just there in may with the eighth army. you know what their slogan is because i know you have been there. it is ready to fight tonight. they train all the time so that they can be ready to defend themselves and the south koreans and their families that live there. what purpose does it serve ending the traping exerciining ? >> it gives us breathing space. we are not stopping training. we are stopping joint exercises for a while to giveim jong-un some assurance that we are willing to meet him more than half way. i am willing to do a lot of things to get them to end their missile program. he can have a membership at trump nationals. i really don't care how generous we are as long as we don't go
8:14 am
too far when it comes to troop presence. at the end of the day this is the last best chance to end the conflict without a war. i am open minded to security agreements and economic incentives to north korea but i am close minded when it comes to withdrawing the forces. >> i realize you are making a joke about giving him a membership to trump national. this is a man who has more than 100,000 people in north korea. they have been compared to concentration camps, starving his own people and torturing them. do you think an invitation to the white house is appropriate? >> i think the north korean nuclear threat is one of the greatest dangers the world faces. i know who we are dealing with. he kills his own people in large numbers. he is a very badguy. i'm willing to deal with him on one condition, that we end this madness in north korea.
8:15 am
he can come to the white house as long as he gives up his nuclear program, gives up his missile program. senator schumer laid out watt a good deal would look like. i am a realist. i'm not trying to unify south korea and north korea. i'm trying to help this president end a conflict between us and north korea where they have a nuclear capability to hit america soon and give up their nuclear weapons before they sell them to somebody who would use them. i'm very open minded. i'm pretty hawkish on this. i'm willing to do a lot to end this conflict. they have to understand that if we don't do it peacefully we will have a military conflict and they will use it. i hope democrats will back the president up regarding the military option as a yterday mentiohim.y thedentaid this uld not haveapped without the death that he did not die in vein. how does that sit with you? do you agree with >> i hope so.
8:16 am
we are talking about a guy who is just a complete thug and k killer. he is not a nice man. he will do what is best for him and his inner circle. trump's got to convince him that you will be safer by giving up your nukes than if you keep them. it's all about kim. it's all about his regime and not about the north korean people. i think president trump is ready if he had to to use military force to bring this threat to an end. i hope north korea believes that. i hope china believes it because i believe it. this is the last best chance to get peace. otto was murdered in the hands of the north koreans. i want to look forward and not backward. if you don't remember what happened and who you are dealing with you are making a big mistake. we will not let china play us and will not let china use north korea to get us to withdraw our forces from south korea because that is very destabilizing. that doesn't help peace.

♪ with that groovy song, we welcome you back to "cbs this morning." congress is looking for remedies for the high costs of prescription drugs. health and human services secretary alex aczar is testifying to a senate committee about a white house plan to lower prices nearly two years after taking heat for the risin cof epipens, pharmaceutical giant myelin is making strides in the fast-growing biosimilar market. biosimilars are drugs and devices made to be similar to already-approved products, potentially lowering the cost of treatment. myelin won fda approval last week for a biosimilar drug designed to help some cancer patients reduce infection risk during chemotherapy.
8:31 am
heather bresch is the ceo of myelin and joins us only on "cbs this morning." good morning. >> good morning. >> lots to talk about. a lot of people on cancer drugs say they're tens and -- there are tens and tens of thousands of drugs. what would this drug do with the biosimilar your company is producing? >> it's an important milestone for patients and our health care system. as you said, these drugs cost tens of thousands of dollars, costing billions to our system. as we're able to bring the first biosimilar product to nulasta, this important product is a marker to what we have to continue to do. our continue to access, we have one of the largest pipelines of biosimilars in the industry. >> is that new, biosimilars? >> i was trying to figure that out, what are they exactly? >> if we think about a drug, a drug is made with chemicals. a biologic comes from a living cell, a protein, a tissue. you can imagine the complexity, the molecular structure of a biologic is just that, way more
8:32 am
complicated than that of, say, aspirin or tablet or capsule. as we think about biologics or typical injectable drugs, they're obviously difficult to replicate. biologics have been around for quite a while. the fda has continued to work with industry to how can we have the rigor around making sure we can bring affordable alternative options to biologics, those are by a similars. dr. gottlieb has spoke ben how much they're -- spoken about how much they're needed and will relieve the burden on the health care system. >> usually when you talk about reduction of burden, people talk about generics. what's the difference, first of all? second of all, how much of a cost reduction are we talking about here? big savings? can you give a percentage or numbers? >> sure. as someone who's been making generics for almost 60 years, myelin has over 7,000 products, over 600 in the united states. we're one of the leading providers of generic medicines. when we talk about biosimilars, they're just that, they're
8:33 am
similar to the biologic. because you're talking about living organism the and replicating and showing that they work, they're clinically equivalent, they're given the word biosimilar versus saying a generic to the biologic. that's the main difference. from a science perspective, fda has put a lot of rigor around making sure that they're going to work the same for patients. >> and then savings that can be achieved? >> significant savings. as we said, tens of thousands of dollars. we'll be launching our biosimilar to nulasta in the coming weeks at a significant reduction. double-digit reduction. >> we've talked over the years about a number of things, typically because myelin makes the epipen. >> yes. >> what did you learn from that experience and the controversy surrounding that price hike? >> well, the first important thing i learned, that when you're in the middle of a crisis no one wano the rationale or justification for it. we took immediate steps to put a half-priced product into the market and make sure we were reaching the patients at the
8:34 am
pharmarecas working for today. since then, i would say over the last couple of years, my commitment was to continue to talk about the system and that epipen was actually a window into the broken system and not working for patients today. and i think that conversation has evolved tremendously especially given the president's blueprint that came out over the last couple of weeks. >> you took the heat, and you're still standing. you want people to know you're much bigger -- there's more to the company than epipen. >> much more. i mean, we've been committed to access for almost 60 years and fighting, been the underdog, bringing important, affordable alternatives to patients. we have the largest cancer portfolio, diabetes, cardiovascular. so we have a vast array of products, and our commitment not only from bringing access but investing. these products take years -- >> the problem, the cost of drugs is too high. >> too high. >> is the president taking action? is it -- >> in january the president said you were going to -- americans would see a substantial reduction in the cost of drugs.
8:35 am
a, is that possible? substantial? second of all, what is it like to have the president put his finger on your industry? some have seen, particularly anybody who does outsourcing, public pressure comes on them that they don't exactly want. so talk about that, and is there an opportunity here at the president's leadership for substantial reduction in drug costs? >> look, i applaud the president. i said when we spoke 18 months ago if there's one thing you can say about this president, he's solution oriented and not afraid to be disruptive. you can't take a system that's been built over 50 years and think that you can just superficially or through a byte change it. when you think about as a country we spend $3.3 trillion on health care which is almost more than double than any other country, and we have one of the worst outcomes for people. the system, the entire system is broken. when we're talking just about pharmaceuticals, i think that as the president has talked about a blueprint for how do we make it market based and how do we bring
8:36 am
transparency. and i think that that would bring tremendous savings to patients. >> that sounds a lot more slow than what he's promising. substantial, fast reduction in costs. is his promise unrealistic? >> no -- i would say that many of the things outlined in his blueprint are administrative actions. these aren't things that would take a long period of time. there are things that certainly secretary azar through hhs and administrative powers that they could absolutely bring transparency. when you think about shopping over-the-counter medicine, you have choices, brand, generics, you know what they cost. we have zero ability to know when you walk up to the pharmacy counter what a product is going to cost, any product, and the reality is every time you go to fill the prescription, it -- it could cost something different depending where you are in your deductible. >> this is your point because myelin is the second-largest provider of prescription drugs in the country. your point is there's a lot of middlemen or middlewomen taking

a cut at different points in the drug price that go into the big drug price. >> that's right. there's a huge disconnect. and if you think a few years ago you could have paid a co-pay, $5, $10, $20, that had no relation to what the value of what you were getting. so we did a disservice for patients. and today we need some rules of the road. we need people, patients to be engaged in their health care. and they need to be able to use data and technology to make sure they're making the best option for their -- for their illness. >> all right. heather bresch, thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you.

8:42 am
it was a tough time. [ laughter ] >> that's "daily show" host trevor noah live at the apollo. talking about growing up in south africa. he was born it a black mom and a white -- born to a black mom and white dad in switzerland born during the apartheid era, or as he says aparthate. his story is resonating with students in newark, new jersey. why? his bestselling audio book "born of crime salon stori" is big. it's part of audible project -- listen up -- the program provides free audible memberships and tablets to all newark high school students and teachers. we asked students the other day how noah's story inspired them. >> if you talk about people from the ghetto like to get out of the ghetto. instead he wanted to change from it. that spoke so much to me. i want sform this wortterhat i'
8:43 am
through or facing or what life brought me, no matter your trials, i can make it. >> he came from being born of crime, a successful person who didn't let his hardships affect who he became in the future. >> wow. trevor noah joins us at the table with your heart intact. good to see you, trevor. >> good morning, everyone. great to see you all again. >> we want to talk about the book and the project. audible book is fantastic. but i really want to get your take on what's happened today. you've been talking about it for the past week. what do you make of what's happened? >> i'm excited. you know, i think this development in north korea is really huge for the world. i think people have to take this opportunity to not hate on donald trump and go, hey, he took a step. he took a step forward toward peace, and if anything, he furthered obama's goal. that's what obama said he would do, he said he would talk to america's enemies, not just america's friends -- >> he's criticized for it -- >> he was. it's great that donald trump said, hey, man, that's a good idea. i'm going to do that. i'm going to speak to our
8:44 am
enemies. he may have surprised south korea by stopping the military exercises on the border, but you know, clearly this is part of a larger plan. and i guess if obama was also going to do it, there's some thinking about it. it's an exciting time. we'lsee where it takes the world. >> conversation's just beginning. let's talk about your book. he was here last time to talk about the book. when i hear you talk about it in audio, i -- you paint such a vivid picture that i really feel like you're taking me there. you start with this -- "to my mother, my first fan. thank you for making me a man." >> right. >> that gave me goosebumps when i heard it. such a love letter to your mom. >> it genuinely is. here's the thing -- i realize every day that i'm a product of a person who was greater than myself who brought me here. and one of the biggest gifts my mother gave me was an opportunity to become a man. you know, you want to be a man, but you have to be created, you know. you have to be taught. you have to be nurtured. and i was really lucky in telling the story that i discovered that my mother was
8:45 am
realer o m i alwaht it i was just her punk-ass sidekick. i've accepted that, and i'm glad that the story resonated with people. it's a story that is international regardlessm. >> what was the idea behind bringing these audio books to the newark city students? >> you know what i loved about the collaboration with audible was we have met so many kids who said to me, hey, i love stories, but i'm not a great reader. or there's one kid who said to me straight, yo, as a young, o will laugh at me if they find me reading the book, but i love your story. he was like, is there another way i can get into your story? i said, listen to it then. no one knows what you're listening to. get into the story. and -- and what i loved seeing how different people connect with the story when it is spoken to them. i've always been a storyteller. i come from a culture of story tellers. to have my book as part of the curriculum but as an audio book is a completely different way for learners to learn, not just about my story but also about south africa's story. a story of belonging, a story of
8:46 am
segregation, a story of overcoming a lot of those obstacles. >> what's it like hearing the students react to your book that way? >> i'm always humbled. i'm genuinely always humbled. i never thought that my story would connect with as many people as it did. >> you didn't -- >> i genuinely didn't. your story's always your story. you go -- i live in my world, i think to myself i'm struggling with my issues. then you realize we all deal with issues of belonging, issues of self-doubt. we deal with obstacles in our lives. they may be different depending on where you're from. but there's always something that prevents you from getting to where you want to go. and i think overcoming that is a universal story that we can all relate to, and the relationship with somebody you love and your family is another that is universal. >> and at the heart of it, too, i think everybody wants to belong, and everybody wants to be loved. when you listen to the book, it says, "all performed by trevor." you do act it out in some ways. you imitate your mom, imitate nelson mandela, the people who
8:47 am
come into your life. i wonder did it change how you even thought about your life and story? >> it did because it forced me to visualize everything. when you're writing a book, you're in the words. you see the words, and you think through in a different way. when you're performing the audio book, i think the reason this became the biggest selling audio book on audible is because i poured my heart and soul in. it i didn't bang it out. i spent hours and hours going over it for weeks. let's do it, let's perform it. i remembered each person in such a vivid way because i had to embody them for the story. which i love doing anyway, you know. >> yeah. >> in my head, i would think what was nelson mandela doing? what was he saying? he was making these speeches, what was my mother doing? what was she saying? >> it's eight hours, too. >> right. >> eight hours. you know, it's turned into a comedy routine. but when you think about being born of crime, how at times your mom would literal have to drop your hand and not claim you,
8:48 am
that had to be tough to claim, especially when you get older and know what it means. >> you know what's funny it wasn't painful working through it. it was, i think, it galvanized the feeling i had for my mother knowing that she had to work through that. as a child, you only know your reality. >> yes. >> i was with my parents. >> sure. >> i didn't know that my mom was letting go of my hand for a reason. ive was like, yeah, she's -- i was like, yeah, she's tired of holding my hand. it's life. i get it. then you go, wow, that's what my parents shielded me from. >> it's no easy thing reading eight straight hours. you'll see your mother on -- this is going to be made a film, your book. what's that going to be like, having her turned into a character? >> i'm lucky because it took a while to think of who would play the role. and lupita nyong'o was groiacio enough to know, called me from the set of "black panther," to say i hope you know i'm playing your mom. i said, of course.
8:49 am
beautiful, represents the country and culture. she's also -- she's a box breaker. when you look at lupita, she's not what you think she is. she grew up in a different world. >> who's playing you -- >> i don't know. >> who do you want to play you? >> i would love to play me, but i'm -- decades too old. so i'm going to have to find a little trevor noah lookalike. >> no comparison -- >> that's what i need. >> congratulations. >> thank you very much for having me. thank you. >> you're doing great on the show. we use a lot of your stuff, too. >> i appreciate it. we use a lot of your stuff. >> yes. >> we appreciate that. you can hear more of "cbs this morning" on our podcast on itunes and apple's podcast app. today, sister of derek jeter and dr. samson davis discuss how we overcome life's challenges. they've got a story, too. they've -- they share stories, rather. ordinary people overcoming extraordinary circumstances. from their book called "the stuff." how to overcome challenges. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. get ready for pixar pier!... prepare to be awed...
