6:13 am
would north korea be willing to give up their nuclear program all at once, or would they favor a phased approach that might not be so attracted to the united states? >> i know that is obviously the biggest issue. doing know some of the other issues that still need to be agreed upon before this meeting takes place? >> reporter: when you look at what both countries one out of this deal, the u. s. once a nuclear program that will be essentially dismantled in north korea. what north korea wants is an end to crippling sanctions that have crippled the economy there. there could be meeting in the middle. the schedule and the pace at which these things happen will be critical. getting rid of the nuclear program and scaling back the sanctions are what the negotiators are no doubt working on. we are waiting to see how nancy pelosi, the house democratic leader, will respond to what president trump said last night, that pelosi loves the international gang, ms 13. >> he is a tool. he is a tool of chuck schumer and of course, the ms 13 lover, nancy pelosi.

6:16 am
highway. ever since then, this was around 2 am, they have been working to try to clean that fuel up off of the road. earlier this morning traffic was getting by without any problems. there weren't a lot of cars on the roadway. now it is a different story with some of the backups. let's look at the maps. you can see the backups extending from the 580-680 interchange all the way back to bolander in san ramon. be aware of that if you're driving in the area. looking at the altamont pass, 205 from tracy toward livermore valley is very slow this morning. there is also an investigation into a hit-and-run crash that was 580 in livermore at greenville. 880 north and south moving well on that stretch of freeway moving past oracle. things were crowded but good here, as well. let's go to steve paulson. we have a lot of low clouds
