8:01 am
music festival goes horribly wrong. some in the crowd shocked when the band green day takes the stage after only a short delay. what the band is saying. this morning. the battle out west to bring the flames under control. young campers rushed to safety. >> walk, walk. >> will firefighters get a break from the record-breaking temperatures? good sunday morning. by the way, dang, it was great to see you anchoring "world news." >> oh, thank you. >> always great to see you in that chair. welcome to the show, everybody. president trump waking up after his busy three-day trip, the second international trip of his presidency. >> here he is arriving home overnight. first lady melania trump by his side. during the g20 summit over
8:02 am
germany, he met with all sorts of foreign leaders from great britain to china, but it is russia dominating the headlines yet again this morning. >> a new meeting between members of team trump and a russian national now coming to light. abc news has learned that during the campaign, donald trump jr. and jared kushner met with a russian lawyer with connections to the kremlin. >> meanwhile, the russian president vladimir putin now speaking out about his face-to-face meeting with trump insisting that trump seemed to accept his denials of russian election meddling. and president trump tweeting this morning, saying, i strongly pressed president putin twice about russian meddling in our election. he vehemently denied it. i've already given my opinion. >> george is standing by with analysis but we're going to start here with abc's seen choir white house correspondent cecilia vega who is in hamburg, germany, for us where the g20 summit took place. cecilia, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, paula, good morning to you. you know, white house aides are calling this trip a huge success for the president and really it was a chance for him to escape some of that chaos back home in
8:03 am
washington, but while he was in the air on air force one on his way home, another russia story broke. overnight president trump and the first lady landing back in washington, and greeting them upon their arrival, another russia headline. "the new york times" reporting that the president's son don jr., his son-in-law jared kushner and former campaign chairman paul manafort met with a russian lawyer who has ties to the kremlin during a meeting at trump tower. that previously undisclosed meeting happening at the height of the campaign, just two weeks after the president won his party's nomination. in a statement don jr. tells abc news an acquaintance asked him to attend the meeting and that it was primarily about an adoption program. a source familiar with the meeting says the campaign was not discussed. as for that other meeting, vladimir putin now discussing his side of what happened behind closed doors. the russian president saying, quote, trump on tv is very, very different from the trump in person.
8:04 am
in that meeting he says the president pressed him repeatedly about russia's election meddling. he denied the allegation and said president trump accepted that saying it seemed to me that he took it into account and agreed. the white house not publicly disputing russia's claim. in another high stakes meeting president trump talking north korea with china's xi jinping. >> and we will have eventually success, may take longer than i'd like, may take longer than you'd like, but there will be success in the end one way or the other. >> reporter: the administration growing increasingly frustrated with china's refusal to take a harder line on pyongyang, especially in the wake of last week's successful intercontinental ballistic missile test. now, a major point of contention between president trump and many of the world leaders here at the g20, his decision to pull out of the paris climate accords.
8:05 am
was the only country in this entire summit to not sign on to a climate change resolution, but, again, dan and paula, the white house is chalking this trip up to a big win for president trump. he has another foreign trip in a couple of days and heads to france to celebrate bastille day with the new french president. >> cecilia, thank you very much. let's bring in our chief anchor, george stephanopoulos, who is going to be hosting "this week" later this morning. good morning, sir. >> good morning, guys. >> let's start with the meeting between members of the trump inner circle and this russian lawyer. do you see any significance here? at.well, a coming things about number one, we know up until through the election president trump was denying any contacts with any russians in his campaign all through the campaign saying absolutely not. this meeting proves that isn't true. i'm sorry, i'm dropping my glasses. that meeting moves that's not true. on top of some other meetings we've learned about since so that denial is off the table right now. still no evidence of collusion but we do know this russian lawyer had been opposed to u.s. sanctions on russia and is very close to the kremlin.
8:06 am
>> and putin, he spoke with russian media and said trump seemed to accept his denials of russian hacking in the election and the white house refused to refute this. what do you make of this? >> it's complicated. number one, secretary of state tillerson came out and basically said the president pressed this then we agreed to move on to focus on other issue, so it does appear that the bottom line here is that these two sides agreed to disagree at best over this issue, over russian interference and it appears now at least that the united states is not contemplating even though they haven't said that more sanctions for this russian interference. instead they've set up this joint group to work on cyberhacking, but that's one of the questions i want to put this morning to treasury secretary steve mnuchin. >> the other thing you may want to talk to mnuchin about congress is returning from the july 4th break. what's the state of play when it comes to repealing and replacing obamacare and what impact does this have on the rest of the trump agenda including cutting taxes? >> it does seem like the effort to repeal obamacare lost steam over the july 4th recess.
8:07 am
senators get pummeled back home by constituents, those who are supporting the repeal not as vocal over the recess and now you have it looks like at least ten republican senators who are holding off from signing on to the repeal effort. remember, they can only lose two. now we're talking to senator ted cruz this morning who says he has an answer to in that might bring on other republicans. there's a lot of skepticism in the party about that. we'll talk about that but you make another good point. only three weeks until the august recess. the president has not had a major legislative victory going into that recess. that would break tradition with all previous presidents in modern times and they have a lot of big issues on their agenda including tax reform, including the budget, including the debt limit. >> infrastructure. >> infrastructure, as well. that appears not to be going anywhere right now, but the treasury secretary in the middle of all that as well. >> yeah, that august hiatus is imminent. all right, george. thank you. >> thanks. >> great to have you. a reminder, george has a big show this morning as he just
8:08 am
mentioned. he's going to talk with treasury secretary steven mnuchin and senator ted cruz but plus goes one-on-one with walter shaub as he resigned as the government's top ethics watchdog. that comes up on "this week" with george. >> mandatory sunday viewing. we're going to move on now to what could be a major turning point in the fight against isis. >> u.s.-backed iraqi forces are edging ever closer to recapturing the key iraqi city of mosul, and abc's ian pannell recently spent time on the front lines and joins us from erbil. >> reporter: paula, dan, iraqi troops now say they've just got a few hundred yards left and then this battle is done. in fact, they say that isis now controls less than half a square mile of mosul. but with civilians trapped and the terrain tough, the going is a slow as it is dangerous. this morning, isis cornered as iraqi troops close in finally taking back mosul after nearly nine months of all-out war. just look at the devastation. >> go, go, go. >> reporter: we went into the
8:09 am
heart of the old city on the front lines with iraqi special forces. civilians have suffered the most here. this is almacmed whose family was caught in the cross fire. her husband is dead and this is what remains of the family home. this was the bedroom of the young girl. she is only 15. this is literally the roof of the house that's come in. when the rocket struck and there were fragments of the rocket around the house. delau lost a hand in the fighting, but she's strong, now planning to teach children denied education by isis. her sister was shot seven times. it's a miracle she's alive. you can see here very clearly where she's been shot a number of times. but she needs eye surgery and there is no money to pay for it. their mother shows you the holes in her home isis forced her to make. and if they didn't, they'd be killed. we look over there. you can see a pretty distinct hole over there that's been bashed through the wall. easily enough space for a man
8:10 am
leading through to the neighbor's house that's now been blocked off, but you can again see another hole there. after months of intense fighting victory is close at hand. a moment to celebrate before the rebuilding starts. so, isis is down, yes, out, no. what we're likely to see is that the militants evolve back to their old guerrilla tactics, the difference being that they now have an international reach that stretches from here to europe to america, and that has u.s. counterterrorism chiefs concerned. paula, dan. >> yeah, that international reach is the big concern. ian, thank you for your extraordinary reporting this morning. and friends of an american tourist beaten to death while on vacation in the greek islands are speaking out this morning. >> abc's kenneth moton is in the victim's hometown of austin, texas, with more on how this recent college graduate is being remembered. good morning to you, kenneth. >> reporter: good morning, dan and paula. family and friends of bakari henderson here in austin have of this they say they're
8:11 am
their heads around this senseless killing. the men arrested in connection with the brutal beating death of a young american in greece hauled into court covered their faces. >> we don't have the full story yet and that's the most frustrating part. >> reporter: the childhood friends of 22-year-old bakari henderson, grappling with the loss. >> such a fun-loving person and just so easy-going, and so many people just loved him. so it was hard to believe. >> reporter: the recent university of arizona grad from austin already an avid world traveler. on vacation in zakynthos, an island hot spot for night life. police say 3:00 a.m. friday a drunken bar brawl broke out at this sports bar. it was henderson against at least eight men. >> bakari was not one to act aggressively like that. he was not one to be in that situation. he was always the one that was the peacemaker. >> reporter: the suspects, a bouncer, a bartender and six serbian tourists taken into custody.
8:12 am
investigators say the deadly beating caught on surveillance cameras. >> the right thing we need to do is just remember the really positive memories we've had with him and i mean obviously everyone wants answers and wants people to pay for what they did. >> reporter: henderson just starting his life. his friends say he wanted his own business. >> he was a big thinker. he loved big ideas, and he was going to do a lot of great things. >> reporter: now they've set up a go fund me page. >> he's like part of our family. that's why, you know, when something happens like that to your family, you have to step in and you have to do something to help. >> reporter: henderson's family too upset to speak on camera say he lived life to the fullest. in greece bar owners in that area told abc news that the bouncer who was arrested was known for getting into fights and they banned him. results of an autopsy on henderson are expected to be released in the next two days, dan and paula. >> just incredibly sad. kenneth, thank you. we're going to turn now to
8:13 am
penn state facing charges after the death of a pledge during an alleged hazing incident. >> tomorrow the young men will be in court where they will once again come face-to-face with the victim's parents, and abc's eva pilgrim has been covering the story and is here with the latest for us this morning. good morning to you, eva. >> reporter: good morning. this hearing so far has been tough for timothy piazza's family. tomorrow they will once again be sitting feet away from the men they say didn't do enough to save their son. 18 former penn state fraternity brothers will be back in court tomorrow morning facing charges in the death of a sophomore pledge. a judge to decide whether there is enough evidence for this case to go to trial. >> i observed the defendants, men kidding, back slapping, joking and acting as though they were at a fraternity reunion. >> reporter: 19-year-old tim piazza died in february after falling head first down the stairs of the beta theta pi fraternity house during an alleged alcohol-fueled hazing ritual. the fraternity brothers are
8:14 am
accused of waiting nearly 12 hours before calling for help. >> we have a friend who's unconscious, he's -- hasn't moved, and he's probably going to need an ambulance. >> reporter: prosecutors say the fraternity brothers waited to get piazza help in an attempt to cover up their drinking and coordinate a story. >> i don't know where their conscience was, where the voice in the back of their head was, saying he's hurt, i got to do the right thing. i don't understand how they could be so heartless and inhumane. >> reporter: a key piece of evidence in this case, surveillance video from inside the house. prosecutors already showing parts of that video in open court. >> that footage is gruesome. it is remarkably barbaric what was done to this young man and they made a decision that they were not going to see that particular footage. >> reporter: but defense lawyers saying while this death was a tragedy, the video does not show
8:15 am
>> i don't see how anybody could be charged with the knowledge that this was anything more than a frat brother who had too much to drink. >> reporter: the university saying they plan decisive action and reforms. piazza's family saying they plan to do everything they can to make sure this doesn't happen to any other family ever again. >> yeah, they've taken this on as a major cause. eva, thank you. >> it's got to be so hard for them to sit in the courtroom and hear that. now to the dangerous situation out west where more than 40 large wildfires are raging. >> triple-digit temperatures threatening to make things even worse. rob is standing by with your forecast but let's go first to abc's marci gonzalez who is in santa barbara county with the latest. >> reporter: hi, dan, paula. you can see some spots still smoldering in this area ravaged by flames. this grill is just about the only recognizable thing left of this building. the house behind it, burned to its foundation. this is just a part of the destruction as fire crews start
8:16 am
another busy day. overnight firefighters battling fast-moving wildfires across the west. hundreds of people forced to evacuate. the flames spreading dangerously close to homes and in santa barbara county, california, surround this summer camp. dozens of children trapped inside. the only way out lined with smoldering brush and trees. the campers finally evacuated. some of them in tears. >> scary? >> yes, it was scary. >> walk, walk. >> reporter: boarded on to buses to safety. farther up the road this sheriff's office vehicle destroyed. the whittier fire quickly scorching several thousand acres in just a few hours. helicopters dropping water onto the flames while fire crews here on the ground keep a close watch making sure the wind doesn't shift. and these flames don't jump to the other side of this highway. across the west, more than 40 other wildfires burning this

don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis.
