most of the people i talked to were trump voters, and they really didn't like this sort of level of tweeting. but he clearly thinks it works and as he said he's president. i'm not, you guys aren't. >> martha, he's been tweeting a lot about health care, the president's promise to repeal and replace obamacare has stalled. the opposition over this plan right now not just in congress. you spoke with one republican governor who has some pretty big concerns. >> john kasich, absolutely. he is very concerned about this. he talks a lot about, you know, is this a negotiating strategy? what are they trying to do on the hill? but he is very, very concerned. he is especially concerned. you know, he certainly thinks obamacare has some problems, but that they have to work it out. he said, you just can't get rid of this because you can't leave people without what they need, and believe me, a lot of people in ohio, they've got that terrible, terrible opioid
>> many states are dealing with that opioid adiction epidemic. martha, let me ask you about the meeting this week, president trump is set to meet with the russian president vladimir putin. what are the stakes here given all these ongoing investigations into alleged russian meddling in the campaign and also the fact that a lot of people are asking questions about why president trump who has had tough things to say about many of our allies has never really said many tough things at all about putin? >> exactly the point, dan. and i think that's what everybody will be watching. what does donald trump say to in a way please his domestic audience, those of us who have been really watching and wondering why he doesn't have harsher words about vladimir putin and whether or not he will bring up that election hacking, of course, very important for what happened in the past and even more important for what russia might do in the future. >> we will all be watching. okay, martha, thanks. a reminder that martha has a big show coming up this morning. she's got that exclusive interview with ohio governor john kasich responding to president trump's tweets and of
course that battle over health care reform. that is all coming up in not too long right here on abc on "this week." >> we'll be watching. but we want to move on to a major break in the apparent road rage killing of this teenage girl. >> police confiscating this red truck in their search for the gunman who killed a recent high school grad in pennsylvania and ron is here with this breaking story. hey, ron. >> hey there, cecilia. well, police say they've been flooded with more than a thousand tips, and now this morning, that new development in the case, the vehicle that police believe the gunman was driving when he allegedly shot bianca roberson found, which could mean authorities are a step closer to the suspect himself. overnight police locating and towing away the truck they say belongs to this man suspected of killing a teenage girl in an act of road rage. >> turn yourself in now. every second you are out there you are only making this worse for yourself. >> reporter: this new development just hours after police released this veo
