2:00 am
as a g-20 some met gets under way, german authorities have used water cannons to try and disperse the crowds. and president trump will meet face to face with vladimir putin, and what will he say behind closed doors? members of congress taking heat over how mitch mcconnell down plays the prospects of passing a bill as protests take place across the country. good morning, everyone.
2:01 am
i apm eamons. and just hours before world leaders arrive for the g20 summit. hundreds of people in several groups across the city have taken to the streets for a second straight day clashing with police and attempting to get past. this after an estimated 12,000 people showed up for the protests, which were dubbed, welcome to hell by the demonstrators, and things took a turn for the worst as groups of protesters hurling bottles and everything else, and the exact sequence of events remains unclear. police say 111 police officers
2:02 am
wer made arrests. that was the backdrop as president trump met with german chancellor, angela merkel. they had a nondescript handshake. the president seemed to snub the chancellor and in contrast, the president's more awkward handshakes with other world leaders. and keir simmons, what's it like on the ground like now and what, if any, are the demonstrations and protesters affecting the summit? >> reporter: there are large numbers of police out on the streets, and you can see a
2:03 am
number of police behind me, and then water cannons have been used against the protesters, and in that tower that is the place where leaders are meeting for the g20. as you can see right now, ayman, it's fun costumes and dancing, and the aim is to try and disrupt the meeting because what these protesters are saying is they are opposed to the g20 and world leaders getting together. yesterday there were 111 police officers injured, and 23 arrests. that's a very low number given the scene we saw. today we are told ten parked cars were vandalized including
2:04 am
two police cars, and there are groups and individuals here making their point heard. it's a different protests, and of course, one group, is, we understand, aiming to try and get near the place where president trump is staying. >> live in germany. thank you. and so much anticipation has built upon today's meeting with president donald trump and vladimir putin. the president already tweeting this morning, i look forward to all meetings today including my meeting with vladimir putin, and they are expected to be just six people in the room when it happens. the president's secretary of state, rex tillerson, and lavrov and translators as well. he declined an opportunity to lay the blame for election
2:05 am
meddling at the feet of the kremlin and saying it could be others as well and it's not clear it will come up when the two leaders speak, and democrats are warning leaving it out would be a dereliction of duty. everybody here is talking about why podesta refused to give the dnc server to the fbi disgraceful. with a section decrying several groups. russia wants the compounds described by the obama administration as spy nests returns. and with us is our guests. it's obviously one of the most
2:06 am
highly anticipated meetings on the world stage in recent month. talk to us a little bit about what we can expect today. game it out for us. what are these two world leaders anticipating to gain? >> reading body language in terms of real substance, it will be far less, and it has been built-up regarding vladimir putin and the allegations interfering in the u.s. elections. and there's another important meeting with china, and we have the north korea missile, and there's a looming trade war with china. and there's the issue of beatings. we had one with angela merkel and other world leaders. the media, i understand why they are focusing on the putin issue, but there's a lot more to it. in terms of substance, much of
2:07 am
this is prepared in advance. the difficulty that merkel is having is the fact is her objective and major challenge is the final commune kay. they will have neutral language and basic common denominators. >> you don't think are going to get as fiery has people are making them out to be, and you think they will stay for a script, it seems? >> the sherpa prepared for the meeting took months, and president trump's sherpa has been there for a few weeks. the paris climate accord is one where she will have to water down the language and leave the table with fewer enough
2:08 am
language, but just enough language where everybody can walk away with something basic. >> you mentioned sticking points, trade is one of them. donald trump has been critical of fair trade saying the u.s. wants fair trade and you are also seeing fair countries make big moves with europe including japan, and trying to sign up big trade deals. how do you at the end -- at the end of a summit like this put out a commune kay that will satisfy everybody without having substance? >> i would say, that's the artistry of diplomatic speak, and what i mean it's to draft something effective enough trying to say something while really saying nothing in real substance, and i don't mean to be cynical but that's the reality of the situation. you mentioned specifically what was a great point that japan already signed a free-trade
2:09 am
agreement with europe that is of enormous symbolism and importance, and what happens is countries like the european, particularly germany, we're not making progress on the issue of trade and we have other alternatives, japan and china, and you will see a lot more europeans taking foreign policy, particularly on the frayed front, and on security, they still remain dependant upon the united states. >> thank you. in a speech to the polish people president trump took credit. take a listen. >> my administration has demanded that all members of nato finally meet their full and fair financial obligation. as a result of this insistence, billions of dollars more have
2:10 am
begun to pour into nato, and in fact, people are shocked, but billions and billions of dollars more coming in from countries that in my opinion would not have been paying so quickly. >> while the president is correct that nato spending is up, but there's no evidence to support his claim that he is responsible. member tpheunations have been committing more, and spending is up so far this year and it was up last year too and the year before that. still ahead, big news, the governor's top ethics watchdog is stepping down. and then mitch mcconnell doesn't have high hopes, and that story and weather when we come back. keep it right here. ♪

welcome back, everybody. with president trump away at the g20 summit, mcconnell raised new doubts about his ability to get the latest health care reform bill passed at least along a party line vote. >> and congressmen are facing people in their own districts. >> congressional sources tell us a vote on the health care bill two weeks away. in kentucky mcconnell acknowledging he may not get the votes he needs to pass the bill. >> if my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to private health insurance market must occur. >> he can only lose two votes or the bill will fail and there's

billions more in for treatment in opioids, and it could not be enough to get the bill over the tip issue line. >> after multiple complaints over the white house secret see over president trump's business ties, the governor of ethics is stepg down. he posted his resignation on twitter yesterday, the same median his office used to communicate with then candidate trump. and trump chose not to divest and he believes he can do more good outside of the agency advocating for stronger laws. >> do you think the president and his family are using the office to inrefp themselves? >> i can't know what the intent is. i know the affect there's an appearance that the businesses are profiting from his occupying the presidency.
2:17 am

welcome back, everybody. it's the bottom of the hour. let's start with the morning's top stories. a federal judge in hawaii was dealt on blow to the stop and pushed the stop of the implementation of the travel ban, and the judge limited the scope of the ban and he said the supreme court is the proper venue to deal with the issue. the director of the office of ethics is stepping down, and he posted his letter of resignation on twitter. the move follows clashes with the president's including president trump's to diffuse the ethics waver. and then president trump said to meet with vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g20 summit. the president tweeting i look forward to all meetings with
2:31 am
world leaders, including my meeting with vladimir putin. there are expected to be just six people in the room. and rex tillerson, and russian foreign minister, lavrov and translators. >> merkel and trump appeared to exchange pleasantries, and a stark departure from when trump snubbed the chancellor. the two held a short private meeting which trump on twitter today called great. and the white house focused mostly on paul tolicy and the rf the g20 could be a continuation of the more tense relationship. and merkel is expected to talk
2:32 am
about climate change. and then more leaders arrive and hundreds of people in several groups across the city have taken to the streets for a second straight day with columns of gray and black smoke rising over the city, and 12,000 people showed up yesterday for the protests which were dubbed welcome to hell by the demonstrators. you reported right from the heart of the confrontations just yet. what is the feeling like there this morning. >> reporter: there have been violent clashes, but where we are is relatively calm. there are groups of protesters sitting in the street. this would have been a very busy week on any other day. and further back the riot police and then water cannons, and that tower indicates where the g20
2:33 am
leader are meeting and that's where the protesters have tried to get to and they are vowing to try again. some folks got their clothes out drying where they were targeted by water cannons through the morning, and police are saying 111 police were injured. we do not have a number for how many protesters were injured. i did see a number of protesters being carried off on stretchers so there were none. and this is a desperate group. and let me go with you one list the police put out in the events they said, barricades, trash cans, and palates set on fire, and traffic signs were torn down or moved and a helicopter was targeted with a flare, and it barely missed the helicopter, and protesters are trying to get
2:34 am
to where president trump is staying. we do expect a protest by the black block, a hard-core group of protesters to begin in just a few hours. >> certainly things developing there. i know you will keep an eye on this for us throughout the rest of the day. the president is already at the g20 this morning, but perhaps the most highly anticipated meeting of his presidency comes in a couple hours with vladimir putin. and joining us is the strategist, and i want to play a sound bite for you between vladimir putin and megyn kelly and then we will talk. >> they have been misled. i haven't seen even once any direct proof of russian interference in the presidential election in the united states. hackers can be anywhere. they can be in russia, in asia,
2:35 am
and even in america, latin america. they can even be hackers, by the way, in the united states, who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, on to russia. >> russia is saying -- he's saying right there it was not us and it could be anybody, really, anybody across the world. and we heard president donald trump say yesterday it could be russia and there could be other players in the hacking. how does that bode for this meeting. what does that tell you? >> there are all forms of plausible deniability. we have several audiences here. putin has his audience at home and trump has his base, and then capitol hill where the investigations are taking place and that's where the president should be most concerned in terms of the fallout. once again, the allegations according to the american intelligence establishment, there was direct interfering and the president has his own
2:36 am
version, and i would say in the meeting itself it's important to go beyond just the russian meddling, the allegations of russian meddling into the u.s. elections, and there's the issue of syria which would be the top of the list is the deconflicktion in syria, and how do stabilize syria where isis once controlled, and the city in raqqa, the assault already began, and you have the city of raqqa which is the de facto capital. that's an extremely important issue in my opinion because you have u.s. troops on the ground -- >> none of those things putin wants to talk about. >> the possibility for some sort of skur pheurb. and ukraine, remember the speech the president gave in poe hrula. it made both sides very happy,
2:37 am
and that was a script, and then he went into the press conference and you see the other trump. >> there's long list of things they need to talk about, but when we look at the meeting itself it will be attended by few, and it doesn't seem to be going to have a lot of substance to it given that it's a small cadre of people. >> it was planned well in advance what they are going to be discussing, and it's more of a shake of the happened to have that physical contact. remember, politics is made by human beings and it's just not about issues and tv and there needs to be personal contact between individuals, and putin has experience with two u.s. presidents, george w. bush and barack obama. he's savvy and skilled and has more experience on reading people. >> and a former kbg master as well.
2:38 am
facing tough questions on the future of health care policy at a town hall yesterday, the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell spoke openly about the republicans failing in the effort toobamacare. take a listen. >> if my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to the private health insurance market must occur. 6 this issue, as you know, has been very partisan from the beginning. not a single member of my party voted for it. all of theirs did. we have had a very different point of view about this particular issue. i mentioned all the things that we have done on a bipartisan basis. this is not one of them.
2:39 am
where we end up if republicans are not able to agree among themselves, the crisis will still be there and we will have to see the way forward from that point. >> and schumer said it's encouraging that mcconnell opened the door to improve the health care system. as we said, time and time again democrats are eager to work with the republicans to stabilize the market and improve the law. and senators are grappling with the bill, and moran's family's pediatrician was among those to express opposition to the republican's bill, and recently re-elected senator, pat toomey, he described that the party was
2:40 am
unprepared to forge their own solution. >> until the election last fall, which surprised me, i did not expect donald trump to win and most of my colleagues didn't so we did not expect to be in this situation and given how difficult it is to get to a consensus it was hard to force that. >> two health care protesters have been charged with criminal trespassing after being arrested outside of flake's tucson office. and one of the protesters have been charged with threats and intimidation after seeming to reference the shooting of scalise. according to flake's communication's director, he told a staffer, you know how hre liberals are going to solve the problem? they are going to get better aim. that last guy tried but needed better aim. we will get better aim. flake was practicing for the congressional baseball game last
