7:03 am
electoral win with polish americans. but the real focus is much farther east, north korea. in the wake of that rogue regime's test of intercontinental ballistic missile, the president calling on the international community to show that there are consequences for north korea's dangerous behavior. president trump this morning enjoying a warm welcome at the role castle with poland's president but eyeing the growing crisis with north korea, vowing to take the threat on very strongly. >> the president and i call on all nations to confront this global threat and publicly demonstrate to north korea that there are consequences for their very bad behavior. >> what's the u.s. considering. >> i don't like to talk about what i have planned, but i have some pretty severe things that we're thinking about. that doesn't mean we're going to do them. i don't draw red lines. president obama drew a red line, and i was the one that made it look a little bit better than it was. >> the comments coming after mr.
7:04 am
trump's tweeting expressing unwillingness of beijing to pressure the regime. so much for china working for us. at an emergency meeting at the u.n. security council ambassador nikki haley warning the u.s. is prepared to act. >> one of our capabilities lies with our considerable military. meanwhile arriving for g-20 later today the president has a full plate, one-on-one with angela merkel and dinner with leaders of japan and south korea that today fired a barrage of missiles off the east coast is part of another military exercise. but the trip's main event will be president trump's first ever face-to-face with vladimir putin. >> we're working with poland in response to russia's actions and destabilizing behavior. >> nbc's hal ex jackson asking repeatedly about moscow's meddling during the election. >> will you once and for all,
7:05 am
yes or no, definitively say russia interfered in the 2016 election. >> i think it was russia and it could have been other people in other countries. mistakes have been made. i agree, i think it was russia, but i think it was probably other people and/or countries, and i see nothing wrong with that statement. nobody really knows. >> reporter: that's how the news conference ended. white house officials have not said whether president trump will raise the issue of russia's role in the 2016 election during his conversation with vladimir putin tomorrow. back here in warsaw, here is a live picture where the president a short time electric now will be delivering what the white house describes as a major speech in front of the memorial to the warsaw uprising. a rallying cry for western civilization. the president expected to
7:06 am
address determination. will say in part, the fundamental question of our time is whether the west has the will to survive. savannah, back to you. >> peter alexander starting us off in warsaw. let's turn to nicolle wallace for analysis. let's talk about north korea first. we're going to hear how fraught the options are with michael. in terms of the president's mind-set, we hear this tough talk. is the white house really prepared to take action that presidents before have decided aren't worth the risk. >> looks like the military are counseling him to do so because of how grim and grave the military options are, but the president's messaging seems to have that in mind, in that he's using that as the stick to entice china to eat the carrots. >> let's talk about russia. obviously friday is the big meeting with vladimir putin, who is known as a master manipulator. this guy studies up, he knows his subject. he certainly will know how to press the president's buttons.
7:07 am
how should the president prepare for this? >> listen, if donald trump's brand is author of "art of the deal" vladimir putin brand is former kgb spy master. this is where the rubber meets the road with everything donald trump thinks he can do to an adversary, vladimir putin has done it and then some. the white house that successfully lowered the bar so low, if it was any lower it would be underground. he's winging it. i don't buy that. obviously they have a plan to exceed expectations, which are less than nothing. the fact he's going into a meeting as a representative of this country that he hasn't affirm he will do what jeremy bash describes as poking a finger in his chest, hey, when it comes to our democracy, i've got this, vlad, is disturbing. hallie jackson's question was meant to manage expectations saying he will take it to russia a little bit.
7:08 am
the fact he insists on throwing other people in the mix when we know that isn't the case continues to be a disturbing sign this cloud about collusion with russia will hang over him no matter where he stands. >> so many clouds over the world stage, russia, north korea, to say nothing of sis. turn it over to matt. >> what options on the table when it comes to president trump when it comes to north korea. we're joined by terrorism analyst michael leitner. good to see you. let's talk about high this test of icbm was game changing. not so much they fear north koreans will attack us first but will now or soon have the ability to retaliate for actions we take or our allies take. >> that's exactly right, matt. they have had a nuclear weapon since 2006, no attempt to miniaturize it, send it to the homeland. what this shows they have the missile ability to reach.
7:09 am
that takes options off the table for united states. >> let's talk about the options still on the table. the first one is called a military or surgical strike. what would it look like? what would the targets be? >> this is hard. you can go after mobile missile launchers or other sites in north korea other nuclear facilities. but the problem is they are deeply hidden and we are very vulnerable to counter-attack. >> there are enormous risks associated with any military strike we conduct. >> that's right, win 50 million miles you have koreans, americans, japan, this is really hard. >> this is a bad option at the moment. let's talk about sanctions. we've imposed sanctions for years yet kim jong-un acts badly. high aren't they working? >> 85 to 90% of north korea's trade is with china and china
7:10 am
hasn't clamped down p until we get china to do that on oil and other critical matters, they probably won't. remember, they have the materials to fight a conventional war and build additional weapons. we've also seen them be aggressive on the cyber front as well in the u.s. and the region. so sanctions keep us vulnerable as well. >> this is why you hear people say these are bad options, sanctions and military strike, so what about diplomacy. why don't we sit down face-to-face with north koreans and talk about these issues. isn't that what kim jong-un is looking for? >> he probably is. we're getting closer and closer to be willing to. i think at this point we can't get into his provocation. on that front we have to make clear we're going to continue this training with the south koreans and show we are one because kim jong-un wants to separate us from south korea. eventually we may simply have to accept we're going to live with nuclear armed korea the same way we are with others. >> face-to-face diplomacy, what
7:11 am
message does that send to other rogue regions who say, wait a second, if i act badly, i can get face-to-face negotiations. >> absolutely. what we have to do with all diplomacy, happened in hand with south korea and japan and make sure china moves along with us and doesn't align with north korea. >> all right. important information, michael. thank you very much as always. savannah. all right. a concerning update to report on condition of house majority whip steve scalise who was shot during practice for congressional baseball game three weeks ago. overpass the congressman was readmitted to the intensive care unit at medstar washington hospital. this is actually a live picture of that hospital and where we find nbc's tom costello with the latest on the congressman. tom, good morning to you. >> good morning. he was one of five people shot on that baseball field three weeks ago, shot on the hip as you recall. trauma action surgeons said at the time it was a very serious injury, breaking bones, hitting internal organs, causing significant bleeding. now doctors say they are
