"abraham lincoln" amid rising tensions with iran. >> we are here. we are ready. >> begnaud: and, right now, rivers are rising in the central u.s. more rain is on the way, and tonight, farmers are bracing. >> we've lost all of our income for the year. >> begnaud: good evening. i'm david begnaud. this is our western edition. as we begin, it is late night in london, where a short time ago president donald trump was honored by queen elizabeth at an official state banquet. the queen has met 12 u.s. presidents. president trump raised a glass to toast the u.s.-britain friendship. he also took aim at political enemies. ben tracy is in london. >> reporter: white ties and tiaras at a dinner fit for a queen and a president. inside buckingham palace tonight with several members of the royal family looking on, queen elizabeth toasted the special relationship between the two countries. >> mr. president, as we look to
6:32 pm
the future, i am confident that our common values and shared interests will continue to unite us. >> reporter: president trump returned the favor. >> on behalf of all americans, i offer a toast to the eternal friendship of our people. >> reporter: the official royal welcome came earlier in the day out in the palace garden. the attire, undeniably british. the music, unmistakably american. ( u.s. national anthem playing ) the royals are masters of pomp, but the circumstances this time around are a bit unique. president trump insulted his royal host just days before he arrived, calling out prince harry's wife, the american meghan markle, for her criticism of him during the 2016 election. >> she said she'd move to canada if you got elected. turned out she moved to britain. >> well, that would be good. there are a lot of people moving here. so what i can say? no, i didn't know that she was tsty. >> reporter: the president then
6:33 pm
denied he said it, both via tweet and on camera. >> no, i made no bad comment. thank you. >> reporter: in london today, the president did what presidents do, including laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknown warrior. but again, it's what he said that's creating diplomatic drama. on the eve of his visit, the president criticized outgoing prime minister theresa may for her handling of brexit negotiations. he waded into british politics, all but endorsing boris johnson as the next prime minister in the middle of a highly contested election. and, just minutes before touching down in london today, he called the city's mayor, sadiq khan, a "stone cold loser" via tweet. the two have clashed in the past, and khan says president trump does not deserve a state visit, preferring instead that the royal family roll up its red carpet. now, some of president trump's controversial comments may fuel protests that were already planned to take place here tomorrow. also tomorrow, more of the
6:34 pm
ceremonial events are over, and president trump gets down to business, in a meeting with prime minister may. david? >> begnaud: thank you, ben. we are going to turn now to breaking news in washington. today, the federal government turned its attention to the country's biggest tech companies. new anti-trust investigations have been launched by the house judiciary committee and two federal agencies. our nancy cordes is in our d.c. bureau right now. nancy, what is the context behind this breaking news? >> reporter: david, a source within the tech industry tells us that two federal agencies, the justice department and the federal trade commission, are going to split up what will surely be a massive investigation. d.o.j. is going to handle apple and google, while the f.t.c. examines facebook and amazon. now, these investigations come as the silicon valley giants battle questions about consumer privacy and misuse of personal data, as well as the ability of foreign countries to manipulate their platforms to spread disinformation. at the same time that this investigation is taking place, the house judiciary committee
6:35 pm
says it is going to open its own probe, looking at anti-trust regulations, looking at the power of these companies. the committee calling it a top- to-bottom review, and saying that it's the first time that congress has really systematically looked into this type of behavior by these tech giants. david? >> begnaud: nancy, all of this was happening as apple was actually unveiling its new strategy at its annual conference earlier today. in fact, itunes will be split into three different apps. one of the highlights is a feature called "sign in with apple." it's a new way of people to sign into third party apps and services. norah o'donnell, the incoming anchor of the "cbs evening news," actually spoke with apple c.e.o. tim cook. >> reporter: when i listened to that today, that new innovation thathat apple sign-on, i shot at the way facebook and google is using all of our data. >> you know, we're not really taking a shot at anybody. we focus on the user. and the user wants the ability to go across numerous properties
6:36 pm
on the web without being under surveillance. we're moving privacy protections forward, and i actually think it's a very reasonable request for people to make. >> reporter: do you think facebook cares about our private security? >> i think that everybody is beginning to care more. people are becoming more aware of what has been happening. many people are getting more offended. i think this is good, because we need to shine a light on it. you can imagine an environment where everyone begins to think there's no privacy, and if there is no privacy, your freedom of expression just plummets, because now you're going to be thinking about that everybody is going to know every single thing that you're doing. this is not good for our country, not good for democracy. >> begnaud: norah joins us now from california. norah, the news was breaking in washington that the federal government is looking into big tech, including apple, as you were doing the interview. did you have a chance to talk to tim cook about this? >> reporter: we did.
6:37 pm
and let me tell you about that in just a minute, because that key point there, privacy. the c.e.o. of apple, tim cook, believes that privacy is a fundamental right. and that's why here at this worldwide developer's conference, he not only talked about new privacy tools, he talked about new software changes, some new hardware with the new macbook pro. all of that addressing what he believes are concerns of users. on that question about whether apple is too big, the c.e.o. said, "i don't think anybody can reasonably conclude that apple is a monopoly," and he said, "i think that the scrutiny is fair. i think we should be scrutinized." so, much more to come on that. david? >> begnaud: norah o'donnell, thank you very much. more of norah's interview with tim cook actually airs tomorrow on "cbs this morning." her full report airs tomorrow on the "cbs evening news." we're learning more now about the 12 people who were shot and killed at a municipal building in virginia beach. some had worked there for decades, including robert
6:38 pm
williams, who had put in 41 years. the gunman had worked there for 15 years. he resigned the morning of the shooting. here's jeff pegues. >> reporter: in a short email sent last friday, dewayne craddock quit his job with the city of virginia beach, citing personal reasons. hours later, police say craddock opened fire at his workplace, killing 12 people. one of them was keith cox. friend and colleague christi dewar said he saved her life by directing her and six others to hide inside an office. >> and we ran in there, and i turned and i said, come on. and he said, i'm going to go check on other people. barricade yourself in. >> reporter: lukita brown had worked for the city for four and a half years. we spoke to her father today. >> she's the epitome of selflessness. she lived to give, you know. and her ministry was everything to her.ep toyeed ceivede sh training. john dudley works in the building, but had left for the day when the shooting started. >> they train you on these situations. >> reporter: active shooter training?
6:39 pm
>> yeah, active shooter training. hide, fight, run. that helped a lot with this. >> reporter: the gunman was described as quiet but normal. one employee says he saw him brushing his teeth before the rampage. so far, no one has suggested that there were any warning signs. according to this f.b.i. report, only 25% of active shooters have ever been diagnosed with mental illness. shooters aren't typically loners, and 27% had significant online interaction. f.b.i. supervisory agent andre simmons studies active shooters, looking for trends that might help prevent future massacres. it's not really accurate to say that someone just snapped? >> not at all. in fact, what we found is that all of the shooters in our study certainly planned and prepared. many shooters spent almost two years-- >> reporter: two years? >> --planning their attack. >> reporter: the f.b.i. and police here are still trying to determine how long this gunman had been planning this attack.
6:40 pm
he did purchase his weapons legally, which is also not unusual. david? >> begnaud: jeff pegues in virginia beach tonight. thank you, jeff. rain is expected to keep falling across the central u.s. this week as rivers continue to rise there. the arkansas river hit a record flood level over the weekend. a wheat farmer that we talked to in fort smith, arkansas, said floods have wiped out about $35 million worth of crops in the region this year. there is more heavy flooding along the mississippi, missouri. it's coming. tonight, the u.s. and iran have hardened their positions. tensions are simmering. iran has already rejected secretary of state mike pompeo's offer to negotiate, saying no talks until economic sanctions are lifted. there is a u.s. aircraft carrier standing by in the region tonight. >> reporter: from the deck of the u.s.s. "abraham lincoln," avoiding a war with nearby iran looks an awful lot like
6:41 pm
preparing for one. we arrived this afternoon to find a carrier at full throttle in the arabian sea, flying 80 to 100 surveillance and training runs a day. u.s. forces regularly patrol these waters is anything but routine. this aircraft carrier was sent here specifically in response to iranian threats. but it is yet to go through the strait of hormuz, a crucial channel for world oil trade, and a potential flashpoint with iran. rear admiral john f.g. wade declined to discuss specifics. what makes this particular situation unique? >> it's unique because there has been credible threats against our forces and against others in this region. >> reporter: and have you been told about those threats, or have you picked up on them yourself? >> i've seen the intelligence and they're credible. >> reporter: credible enough for national security adviser john bolton to redirect the "lincoln" along with b-52 bombers and
6:42 pm
hundreds more u.s. troops to the region. the national security adviser said that sending this strike group is sending a message to iran. what is the message for you? >> the message is, we are here, we are ready, and we came here fully prepared, fully trained, ready to go. >> reporter: they may have to be. washington has already warned tehran that any attack on american forces or u.s. interests would be met with fierce retaliation. charlie d'agata, cbs news, aboard the u.s.s. "abraham lincoln" in the arabian sea. >> begnaud: it is already tuesday, june 4 in china, the 30th anniversary of the brutal crackdown on a democratic movement in tiananmen square. hundreds, maybe thousands of people were killed. today, the secretary of state, mike pompeo, called for a full accounting of what happened, bue interested in wiping it from history. elizabeth palmer went to beijing.
6:43 pm
>> reporter: on june 4, 1989, weeks of demonstrations in beijing's tiananmen square ended in mass murder. ( gunfire ) cbs cameras recorded chinese soldiers shooting unarmed civilians, most of them students. wuerkaixi, one of the student leaders, survived, but had to flee into exile. >> i am a survivor of a massacre. >> reporter: a massacre no one talks about in china. posing as tourists, we went to tiananmen square, a landmark still so sensitive that even tourists have to show i.d., and erywheare surveillance cameras it's hard to imagine this vast square filled with passionate students demanding more freedoms. 30 years on, the chinese government has erased every reminder of those events 30 years ago.
6:44 pm
pictures like this are banned from television and school textbooks. and it's worked. we showed some of the photographs to young passers-by. have you ever heard of these events? >> i think not. >> reporter: no idea? what country? >> i have no idea. >> reporter: minutes later, the police showed up, and we ended up in custody for six hours. in today's china, consumerism and capitalism have eclipsed demands for political freedom. but wuerkaixi, once a young hunger striker who risked his life for the cause, says tiananmen still makes the chinese conservative party very nervous. >> freedom is something, once you taste, you get hooked on it very easy. >> reporter: elizabeth palmer, cbs news, beijing. >> begnaud: incredible story. next on the "cbs evening news," there has been a grim turn in the search for eight missing
