bilateral meetings and a news conference. the two leaders far apart when it comes to climate change and immigration but will likely find common o ground in fighting terrorism. president trump will be the guest of honor at this year's bastille day events and will take part in ceremonies marking the 100th anniversary of the united states getting into world war i. the president's trip, though, comes as the white house remains dogged by the controversy surrounding that meeting with donald trump jr. held last year with a russian attorney in order to get dirt on hillary clinton. in a new interview, the president told reuters that he did not fault his son for holding the meeting which he called a decision made in the heat of an upstart nontraditional campaign. other big news today. it's going to be a busy day on capitol hill. senate republicans are expected to release an adjusted healthcare bill. >> melanie alnwick this morning live on the hill breaking down some of the changes. mel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, steve and allison. there are still big questions out there for republicans ab
7:06 am
perhaps they will get some answers when this revised plan is laid out in a closed door meeting with gop senators today. meanwhile last night president trump really ramping up the pressure saying he would be very angry if republicans can't get this one through. the new bill does ease up just a bit on some of the medicaid cuts and makes other changes designed to win over enough votes. it would delete certain taxes on the healthcare industry but keep the extra tax on individuals to help people with lower income pay their premiums. there will also be money for states to combat drug abuse. it will still be a squeaker though to get it through the senate. republicans as you're about to hear from very different opinions of the bill. >> any one of my colleagues who said they are going to repeal it and now they're holding out because we're not throwing enough at the problem i would really ask them to check their consciences and go come on, what did you promise the american people. >> when we looked at the bill a week ago and i said and or two weeks ago
7:07 am
couldn't support the bill as it was they have now taken the bill and made it worse. >> i want to give democrats an opportunity at least have input to the idea. >> reporter: well, as we know, no democrat at this point is going to vote for this bill and that really puts republicans in a tight spot. they can only afford to lose two gop senate votes in order to make this bill pass, that is if vice president mike pence is the tie breaker vote. we are still two senators as we know who have said they don't support the bill, three others at least who are still on the fence so it remains to be seen what's going to happen. we know they're trying to schedule a go-ahead vote next week. live on capitol hill, i'm melanie alnwick fox5 local news. >> whoa. >> uh-huh. >> serious. >> nice. >> looks like a desert scene. >> yeah. >> you can already feel the heat out in melanie's live shot this morning. >> yeah. >> feel it. >> steamy. >> yeah, very steamy. daytime highs up near a hundred today. heat index going to be very os

good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, guys. yeah, listen, i took the snapchat yesterday while i was at the capitol during my live shot, this is a screen shot of it where i got the temperature reading and you can see at 9:00 a.m., it was 84 degrees yesterday, that fire emoji obviously describing how we were feeling during our live shots yesterday. it is two hours from then right now, in the 7 o'clock hour and we are still looking at 80 degrees right now, so just an indication of how hot yesterday was, that's definitely going to be the case today and it's going to get even hotter. heat advisory in effect and that's why d.c. government has activated their heat emergency plan, which means all 19 of their cooling centers, 30 of their indoor and outdoor pools and 20 spray parks in and around the city will be opening today. most of them around noon throughout the afternoon where you can go and get some preleaf in this oppressive dangerous and even deadly heat we're going to see
7:11 am
this map shows all the locations throughout the district. you can also find it on our web site fox5d.c.com so you should be able to find one nearby in most parts of the city. similar situation also in virginia, fairfax county, arlington, also in prince george's county as well. also another thing to keep in mind, guys, it's not a good day to keep your pets unattended outside or in the car. this is of course illegal now in d.c. they passed emergency legislation earlier this week cracking down on people who leave their pets unattended. you are not allowed to leave your pets outside for more than 15 minutes when the temperature is more than 90 degrees. we will be well above that today. also d.c. police have the ability now to break your car windows if they see a dog or a child for that matter inside left unattended to try and rescue them. you can face some steep fines for either of those so you're going to want to make sure that you pay attention and you do not leave anybody out in
7:12 am
it's going to be dangerous. i'll send it back to you guys in the studio. that's the latest here in northwest. >> good reminder anjali thank you the. firefighters slowly surrounding doddss of wildfires in california. the so-called wall of fire in butte county has damaged or destroyed more than 100 structures including dozens of homes. evacuation orders have been reduced to warnings but authorities say more than 600 homes remain threatened. some of the people evacuated have and returned home. crews have also managed to contain the alamo fire which has blackened nearly 29,000 acres. >> months after video of a passenger being dragged off a united flight went viral, changes being made to protocol used by the security officers who dragged that passenger. details next. >> and later a driver in the district under arrest this morning in an accident that that sent a transgender woman to the hospital. but the question now will that driver face hate crime charges, too? >> ♪ >> ♪♪

7:15 am
>> three months after this video of the man being dragged off the united airlines flight in chicago went viral, the city's department of aviation says it is making some changes to some of its procedures. now, part of that includes what the officers are wearing. removing the word police from the security officers' jackets because the officers in the video were not actually police officers. even though their jackets said they were. the uniform was improperly marked. this comes following a review of the incident, follows a city hard nance set to go into that effect this month and the headline here is that ordinance bans security officers from removing passengers from a plane but apparently they took it a step further and said hey these are not actual police officers, they're airport security. >> big changes going to change people's jackets. >> no, i just said the bottom line
7:16 am
drag people off the plane anymore but they took it a step farther and said they're going to change the jackets. >> don't drag folks off the plane like that. >> i agree. looking at bright sunshine across the area. there's not a cloud in the sky to start your morning and the reason we're showing you that sunny shot is because that sun is going to heat us up to near 100 degrees later today. >> good. >> okay? now you're into it, hm. >> i have been trying to get the kids to the little county pool but it hasn't felt right. today it might actually be the day. >> okay, my advice, though, make sure you wear your flip-flops because the pavement is going to get super hot. >> super hot. >> record for today, a hundred degrees at reagan national. 99 up in baltimore and dulles 97. i don't think we'll hit any records but we're going to get close. that's our forecast highs. and again, that's the actual air temperature. mix in the humidity and what's it going feel like steve. >> 105.
7:17 am
because of that we have a heat advisory. currently 80 glorious degrees in washington, same in new york. boston has had showers and storms overnight. they're only 65 degrees. the front is off to our north in new england and that cold front will drop into the region tomorrow. but i do want to throw out there after we get daytime heating today, we have a little trough coming 32 that will likely give us some scattered thunderstorm activity midafternoon and we could fire up a few strong storms later today. look out for that kind of midafternoon and a much better chance we get widespread thunderstorms tomorrow with a cold front that will cool us down and bring us less humidity for the weekend. so the weekend looks great. saturday and sunday generally sunny skies. hypes about that 90 with less humidity but we got to get there. today 97, hot, humid dangerous heat. >> all right. we'll let good. >> all right. >> okay, bye. >> bye-bye. >> let's check back in the commute. hi erin. >> mike thomas is set out to do a live show. he said should he take 50 or the inner loop. this is the inner loop in oxon hill. you're completely parked from branch

hit-and-run accident that has left a transgender woman in the hospital for more than a week. >> big question though this morning was this a hate crime? fox5's bob barnard live from the scene of that hit-and-run at fourth and k northeast. bob. >> reporter: hey, allison and steve. yes, her friends have a facebook page it's called justice for boo-boo. that's her nickname. we're not going to identify her other than that. they also say on that facebook page stop killing black trans women. this is where the accident happened. she was not killed. she's in the hospital. this is where it happened. this woman had been out with friends on the fourth of july just a couple blocks from the h street northeast corridor. this is fourth and k streets northeast. happened about 3:20 in the morning on july 5th. she was struck and injured here in the street. the driver, though, has just been arrested. the car was recovered as well with some windshield damage. the 18-year-old driver stark man anderson of northeast d.c. has been charged with aggravated assault while armed. the car being the
7:20 am
police say words were exchanged before the collision and because the victim is a transgender woman, they're wondering was this a hate crime. >> after looking at the investigation at this point we believe the vehicle was used as a weapon which as you know our victim received some very serious injuries as a result and we were able to get a warrant for the arrest of mr. anderson. now, to your question as to whether this was a hate crime or not, we cannot definitively say at this point that it was a hate crime. >> reporter: and detectives say the victim and the teen arrested did not know each other. the victim suffering multiple injuries. but stable condition.ritical- the suspect, the 18-year-old, mr. anderson, is due in court today and the detective said that we should learn more information, more of the details about what happened before the car hit her here on the street in the court documents that will be released today, guys.

7:32 am
they passed the law any wage it's been used four or five times but the problem s it's two cumbersome for to us use and quite candidly with the growing number of gang crimes, particularly violent crimes and in mice jurisdictions homicides we need them to go back and look at that tool and give us a ricoh state statute so we can attack these gangs at the leadership level. >> there be some saying homicide is a homicide and assault is an assault. what is it that gives you that added i guess layer of prosecution to have it quote unquote gang related? >> what will happen s if we can prove the lynn catch between the leadership and the actions of their associates, much like organized crime kinds of prosecution where is the leaders -- we're able to go after the individual leaders who are ordering the crimes even if they're not participating directly in them as long as we can show the link catch there's the existence of the gangs, and these acts were done by individual members of the gan
7:33 am
activities. it helps us chop the head off of these gangs. that's the bottom line. >> i know some of your frustration when it comes to the way that this is superintendent. you have to have certain identifiers to prove that somebody is connected with a gang. >> that's exactly right. >> but it seems -- >> not uniform by the way. they're not uniform. how you classify or certify that somebody is a gang member, there are a number of different criteria and sometimes that's what skus the numbers. i really thing gang related crime in my jurisdiction is under reported. we're not gathering the numbers. >> pictures we're showing right here, though, it's quite obvious by body markings and everything else, isn't that enough to prove somebody is in a gang it. >> depends upon who -- some people say merely having the tattoos flashing a gang sign is not enough. here's an absurd under federal criteria right now if i said i was a member of ms13, i admit i was member of ms13, that is not sufficient under most criteria to certify you and put knew the database as member of ms13, even though you've told me you're a member
7:34 am
>> so what needs to happen to make the situation easier to prosecute and easier to get gang members off the streets? >> let me say this. there's -- we need a new statute to make it ease your for to us target the leadership in these gangs. we need a federal like ricoh statute on state level in maryland, number one. number two, we need to be able to gather numbers that more accurately reflect the size of the problem we're talking about. in the area of homicide, the numbers -- they're not enormous numbers but we've gone from zero or one homicide that were gang related in montgomery county on a typical year. most years zero. in the last 24 months, we have had have had 18 and ten of the 18 are ms13. and these are overkill cases with younger offenders. many of our victims are under 18. many of our killers are under the age of 18. there's a lure that happens in everyone of these cases. there's massive overkill and what happens you'll have eight or ten people set upon an individual and everybody is
7:35 am
participating. these are gruesome crimes and i will tell you as a community we have to wake up to what's happening. there's a really growing potential danger being orchestrated and looks, our federal partners have told us, this is being orchestrated out of el salvador in terms of ms13 in particular and going on for years. >> you've been at this job for 12 years as states attorney in montgomery county. do you see the problem much worse now than it was when you took on this role 12 years ago, and can your office we talk bout hands being tied, do you know more about what's going on out there than you can actually go after from a legal standpoint? >> yes our hands are tied because we don't have the tools legally. i think the problem got worse. 2009 we were able to convict 42 members of the leadership of ms13 in maryland. i will tell you we basically effectively cut the head off of ms13. strategically as the gang had additional pressure put on it in el salvador, orders came to ancillary gangs located in the
7:36 am
county to expand their activities in terms of protection, prostitution, drug running, they've done that, that's is happening in our county, and there's been an explosion in terms of recruitment and violence associated with that recru recruitment. >> we can talk for long time. unfortunate we'll have to wrap it up. >> is the bottom line more funding? is it reaching out to state officials? what is itúri, look, we can get these people off the street? >> i think we need more resources and we need better tools. new laws that make it ease your for to us target the leadership went need greater resources. resources, social media. they are using social media. we should be spending time every day with researchers and par la rah legals looking at social immediate yachts unbelievable what you can find on social media about the relationships and the activities of gangs in your community simply going on facebook. >> we can zen sewer frustration g to talk to you, john. >> thanks. >> it's a serious problem not just in montgomery county. >> it's a nationwide and regional problem. >> huer s john mccarthy states attorney for montgomery county.
