7:00 am
toast. i'm not wearing those. sorry. i agree with you. you're a person of class good morning, america. breaking news from that high stakes summit with north korea, no deal. the president walks away from that nuclear summit. talks collapsing early this morning. >> sometimes you have to walk, and this was just one of those times. >> the two leaving with no agreement. the fallout right now. all this as the president fires back this morning at his former attorney and fixer, michael cohen, over that explosive testimony. >> he is a racist, he is a con man, and he is a cheat. >> the president calls cohen's testimony shameful. democrats call for more investigations, and what are prosecutors still pursuing about trump? under water. record rain causing major floodi oviyarddr
7:01 am
the desperate rescues, and now new concerns about another storm moving in. the never-before-seen video, the confession on this tape. what this teen admitted about his friend who was killed for her inheritance. major warning for parents. that tiktok app so many kids and celebrities are using now faces a massive fine and crackdown. how they may have compromised the privacy of millions of young children. ♪ to the surface where it can't hurt us ♪ and lady gaga going deep on that steamy "shallow" performance. what she just revealed overnight about her and bradley cooper. ♪ in the shallow and good morning, america. we want to get right to that breaking news. just hours ago, president trump pulls the plug on his summit with kim jong-un. no deal on north korea's nukes so the president cut the summit short.
7:02 am
there you see him leaving vietnam early this morning after the talks collapsed. >> but the president not leaving before weighing in, of course, on that other history-making moment, his former lawyer and fixer, michael cohen's testimony on capitol hill. the president blasting cohen but sharing kind words about kim jong-un. >> this even though they could not reach an agreement. our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl is there in hanoi with the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the headline here, no deal. the president continues to call kim jong-un a friend. but he told reporters just a short while ago sometimes you have to walk. there were handshakes and smiles but the summit came to an abrupt end without any agreement, not even a joint statement. >> i think actually it was a very productive two days, but sometimes you have to walk and this was just one of those times. >> reporter: there was a fundamental disagreement. kim jong-un wants the crushing sanctions on his country lifted before dismantling his nuclear program.
7:03 am
>> basically they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn't do that. they were willing to denuke a large portion of the areas that we wanted but we couldn't give up all of the sanctions for that. >> reporter: no agreement, but the president continued to talk warmly of the north korean dictator. >> we spent pretty much all day with kim jong-un, who is -- he's quite a guy and quite a character and i think our relationship is very strong. >> reporter: if kim is quite a ruler of perhaps the most repressive regimes on the planet, one blamed for the death of american college student otto warmbier, who spent more than two years in a north korean prison and died shortly after he was released with brain damage and in a coma in 2017. >> i don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen. he felt very badly. he knew the case very well but he knew it later.
7:04 am
you know, you got a lot of people. big country. a lot of people. and in those prisons and those camps you have a lot people and some really bad things happened to otto. some really, really bad things, but he tells me, he tells me that he didn't know about it and i will take him at his word. >> reporter: earlier kim, for the first time, took questions from the western press responding through a translator. >> chairman kim, are you ready to denuclearize? >> translator: if i'm not willing to do that, i won't be here right now. >> good answer. wow. that might be the best answer you've ever heard. >> reporter: the questions kept coming. a member of the north korean delegation motioned for the press to leave and kim seemed uncomfortable to be put on the spot. >> chairman kim, are you ready to allow the united states to have an office in pyongyang? are you ready for that step? >> translator: is it better to leave -- let the -- >> yeah, i think we will. i think we will. that's actually an interesting question. i would like to actually hear that answer because it's not a bad idea.
7:05 am
>> translator: well, i think that is something which is welcome-able. >> reporter: the president said he still hopes to strike a deal with kim jong-un that rid north korea of its nuclear weapons, but there is not even a date for another summit meeting. in fact, the president was asked if he had committed to meeting again with kim jong-un, and he said, no, no such commitment. at least not now. robin. >> all right, jon, thanks very much. >> stand by there, jon. i want to bring in martha raddatz as well also in hanoi with you and, martha, of course, a lot of disappointment there was no deal struck on the nuclear weapons but there has to be some relief among the president's team that he didn't make too many concessions to get a win. >> reporter: exactly, george. there were concerns that president trump wanted to deal so badly that he may have backed off some of the u.s. demands that clearly did not happen, but at the same time this abrupt ending today showed just how far apart the u.s. and north korea
7:06 am
are in their understanding of what happened at the first summit in june. the administration then saying kim was willing to denuclearize before sanctions relief. now we know that kim either saw the deal differently or has now changed the conditions for the deal. >> in fact, the president said then that the nuclear threat from north korea was over. jon, it seems like this personal relationship with the president -- between the president and kim is kind of evolving, still warm in some ways but pushing in others. >> reporter: yeah, extraordinary moment we saw. first of all, kim jong-un, as far as we know, has never taken a question from the western press, at least not before today. he was asked a question about opening a -- several questions but one of them was about opening a u.s. office in north korea. he clearly didn't want to answer it. the north korean minders were starting to push the press out and the president said, wait, i'd like to hear the answer to this. really an interesting moment.
7:07 am
perhaps some unfamiliarity, the president liking to put kim jong-un on the spot. >> martha, the terror of the kim regime so well known, so well documented, but the president still not willing to push there. >> reporter: he really isn't, and a year ago, of course, he was talking a lot about how terrible kim jong-un is and the regime there. now, he just avoids those questions, although that answer to the otto warmbier question was just truly remarkable, george. >> martha raddatz, jon karl, thanks very much. >> yeah, he called the prison camps rough places. i don't think that's going to go over well with a lot of people. but one historic moment playing out while another was under way on capitol hill. it was a remarkable split screen that president trump says he found time to watch while there in vietnam and what he heard, his former lawyer and fixer speaking directly to him and painting a bruof life inside the trump orbit, calling the president a racist, crimes. our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce is
7:08 am
right there for it all. and mary, the president is now firing back at cohen but he also praised him for one thing, for saying there was no collusion with russia. >> reporter: yes, cecilia, the president says cohen did get that right and cohen did say that he has seen no evidence of collusion but he also added that he has his suspicions. and you're right, there's no question, this testimony was brutal. the president's former fixer leveling one searing accusation after another and suggesting that there is even more still to come. overnight, michael cohen cheered on at his hotel after his blistering takedown of the president. while half a world away in vietnam, trump was watching too. our jon karl pressing the president. >> he called you a liar, a con man, a racist. what's your response to michael cohen? >> i wasn't able to watch too much because i've been a little bit busy. >> reporter: he called cohen's testimony shameful and fake but says cohen backed him up on one key sticking point. >> he didn't lie about one thing, he said no collusion with the russian hoax and i said i
7:09 am
wonder why he didn't just lie about that too like he did about everything else. >> reporter: in seven hours of testimony, cohen who was once trusted to keep the president's secrets, pulled back the curtain. >> he is a racist. he is a con man. and he is a cheat. >> reporter: accusing the president of criminal activity while in office, cohen said trump directed him to make those hush money payments to porn star stormy daniels. the president initially denied those payments but cohen brought documentation, a check he says shows trump repaid him for the money. >> you don't have to take my word for it. i don't want you to. i want you to look at the documents. >> reporter: and he said trump told him to lie about the whole thing. >> what did the president ask or suggest that you say about the payments or reimbursements? >> he wasn't knowledgeable about the reimbursements and he wasn't knowledgeable of my actions. >> he asked you to say that? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: another allegation -- >> wikileaks, i love wikileaks. >> reporter: cohen claim trump knew ahead of time that
7:10 am
wikileaks was going to release hacked dnc e-mails that were damaging to hillary clinton. and he said trump wanted him to lie to congress about a trump tower project in moscow, a deal cohen now admits was negotiated with russia well into the campaign. cohen says it was all typical in the world of donald trump. >> how many times did mr. trump ask you to threaten an individual or entity on his behalf? >> quite a few times. >> 50 times? >> more. >> 100 times? >> more. >> 200 times? >> more. >> 500 times? >> probably. >> reporter: republicans came out swinging against cohen who's pleaded guilty to lying to congress before. >> michael cohen, fraudster, cheat, convicted felon and in two months a federal inmate. >> liar, liar, pants on fire. no one should ever listen to cen noted that they were not quick to defend the president's actions. >> i just find it interesting, sir, that between yourself and your colleagues that not one question so far since i'm here has been asked about president
7:11 am
trump. >> reporter: and he hinted that there are more potentially even bigger bombshells still to come. >> is there any other wrongdoing or illegal act that you are aware of regarding donald trump that we haven't yet discussed today? >> yes, and, again, those are part of the investigation that is currently being looked at by the southern district of new york. >> reporter: and cohen will be back here on the hill again this morning. this time testifying behind closed doors with the house intelligence committee and that chairman says they are going to question him on a range of things digging deep into these various allegations and questioning him about the possibility of collusion with russia. george. >> okay, mary bruce, thanks very much. let's bring in our legal team now. senior correspondent pierre thomas, and dan abrams, and pierre, let me begin with you. mary ended with really the biggest news of the hearing yesterday, that notion that michael cohen is still cooperating with the southern district of new york. they're still hard at work. >> reporter: good morning,
7:12 am
george. cohen said since he's been sentenced to prison, he's been in, quote, constant communication with the federal prosecutors in new york. cohen said prosecutors had questions regarding whether trump or a surrogate contacted him after the fbi raided his properties and there are possibly other questions surrounding his inauguration and the trump organization. one person who may be key in answering some of these questions, his chief financial officer, allen weisselberg, who's been a cooperating witness. cohen raised his name repeatedly yesterday as someone who could provide those answers, george. >> and raised other trump organization executives as well, and, dan, in some ways this has to be the biggest concern for the trump team, reaching into the trump organization by prosecutors? >> absolutely, and it's which prosecutors that are doing it as well. if this was the special counsel, some people would be saying, well, you know, they're going to be done pretty soon. they have a limited mandate. the southern district of new york isn't going anywhere and they don't have a limited mandate, so, if they're looking into this sort of issue with the cooperation of michael cohen, that is definitely something the president needs to be worried about.
7:13 am
>> also, yesterday, michael cohen had some supportive statements for president trump which in some ways bolstered his credibility but also helped the president. >> right, as a legal matter, saying he didn't know of any collusion with the russians. he said he maybe suspected it but didn't know of any. on the campaign finance issue he said one of the reasons the president was concerned about the check that was being written to stormy daniels was he didn't want melania to find out. not a crime to pay someone off to protect from your wife finding out. only a crime if it's to influence the election. now, he did say it was both to influence the election and to protect him from melania but the more ambiguity the better. and then finally he said that he wasn't directed by the president to lie to congress. >> doing his bidding but not directed. >> right, he said there was a code that was understood but, again, as a legal matter, code is much harder to prosecute than would be if he claimed that there was some sort of directive. >> but one clear thing, this is not over in congress. big thing the democrats did yesterday was lay the groundwork for more investigations. >> that's right.
7:14 am
they're going to have to be very careful, though, because as the federal investigation moves forward in the southern district of new york, congress doesn't want to step on that and that's the last thing the prosecutors would want. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. robin. >> we're going to move on now from politics to that record rain out west. more mandatory evacuations overnight as rivers flood forcing thousands from their homes. chief national correspondent matt gutman is in northern california with the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: robin, good morning. parts of nearly two dozen towns look like this this morning and the sheriff here said the town of guerneville is officially an island. the only way in or out is by boat and officials believe up to 4,000 homes and structures are submerged. this morning, thousands remain stranded as record rain triggered the worst flooding in decades along the russian river. >> i have never seen the river this high. >> reporter: from the air you can see that sea of brown swallowing homes, cars bobbing helplessly. >> the water keeps coming up. we may or may not have lost everything.
7:15 am
>> reporter: overnight, parts cresting over 45 feet, 13 feet above flood stage, the most flooding this area has seen since 1995. from where i'm walking normally you wouldn't even be able to see the russian river. it's only about 20 feet wide but right now it's 2,000 feet wide. first responders making dozens of rescues. carrying residents and their pets to safety. >> we had plenty of supplies in the house but once our water went out we felt like it was time to leave. >> reporter: people using paddle boards and rowboats to navigate the flooded streets. this fuel tanker barreling through, those waves knocking around that abandoned car. this morning, more than two dozens along the river's edge remain under mandatory evacuation orders. >> just a mess everywhere. >> reporter: now, we've seen water subside this morning. we're told folks in stranded will remain stranded and another
7:16 am
storm is forecast for this weekend. >> all right, matt. that's right, the worst is not over out west. as a new storm moves in, some areas are getting major snow. ginger tracking it all for us. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, robin. interstate 80 closed for more than a day in some places right at the california/nevada state line and they finally got it re-opened. they've been working 24/7 and look at this, donner summit, california, an area with seven feet of snow in three days. that is a peak of a roof in case you didn't get that out there. just to give you an idea what's happening, today is dry. tomorrow is not. a new winter storm watch is up not just in the sierra but up into the rockies because of this storm that comes in really tomorrow afternoon and early evening. could see several feet of snow, cecilia, in the monterey bay area a couple of inches of rain. >> you're going to be busy, my friend. thank you. now to new video showing that amazon cargo plane nose-diving seconds before its fatal crash. authorities are still searching for those critical black boxes. our senior transportation correspondent david kerley has the very latest and, david, this new video could offer inveorsom. >> reporter: it will, indeed,
7:17 am
and it is our first look, cecilia, at some of the final seconds of that flight of the amazon 767 cargo jet. take a look. you can see this big wide-body jet nose down going very fast as it kills all three disintegrating into a bay. take another look. the video caught by a school security camera. the jet was at just 6,000 feet when this sudden steep high-speed dive starts, ending up in the bay. now, there's another piece of video from a county jail camera. all this is helpful to investigators but really it is about the black boxes. they are believed to be in the mud of that marsh of trinity bay and, robin, once we find those boxes, a lot of clues about why this 767 fell out of the sky. >> people want to know. all right, david, thank you. now to a new job for the dog that stole the nation's heart. sully, president george h.w. bush's former service dog, was sworn into the navy at walter reed medical center on wednesday. his job will be to help comfort wounded vets. something he'll certainly be good at. he was seen as a symbol of
7:18 am
comfort. remember this photo, comforting, guarding president bush's coffin. sully was at his side, the former president's side, the last six months of his life. >> comforting just to look at him. >> it is comforting. there is a new alert about the popular app tiktok that so many kids and celebrities use. did it expose young children's personal information, even their locations, coming up. also this morning, never before seen video from that murder case where a teen was killed for her inheritance. that's all coming up. but first back to ginger. >> it's my job. i have to show you these numbers. monday morning, the windchill feeling like 32 below in north dakota, 33 below in minneapolis, and eventually gets east but it only feels like 2 below in detroit. you're welcome.

8:36 am
report" and it's about the cia's clandestine terror tour program. she was head of the intelligence committee that ended up doing a very extensive investigation of this clandestine program. so it's really about them first finding out that the program existed, which, of course, broke in "the new york times" because what happened was they had taped these interrogations. the tapes had been destroyed and that's when the story broke. so that's when the intelligence committee got involved. that report never came out but then they did the report on the whole program, which took many, many years and then it was a battle to get it out. >> huge battle. >> which is what the movie is really about. but the good news is is that our system of justice in this caseworked. the checks and balances worked. eventually there was a bipartisan vote. yeah. there was a bipartisan vote to release the report and it did happen so that's what our movie

scrubbed in since season one like jesse williams who beame dr. jackson avery after a big career change. >> you should see me without a shirt on, it's kind of ridiculous. >> i just started acting from being a public schoolteacher. >> reporter: 29, the number of female directors who have stepped behind the camera on the show which is also run by women. >> it is a friendly place for women's empowerment because finally, you have all of these women who are sitting in places of power who are in charge and so we are reaching out to one another. >> you're married to a strong woman. you work with strong women. your character is surrounded by strong female energy. what's that like being the man in the middle of all that? >> oh, it's a lot of fun. oh, man, that's great. i think every man would like to do that. have such strong women around them. it keeps you vibrant and it keeps you on your toes and they'ramg
8:42 am
serly? seriously. >> seriously. >> reporter: 2005, the year the show premiered and began to break barriers with diverse characters. something cast members themselves take pride in. and credit shonda rhimes. >> it's not sort of a given that the cast of "grey's anatomy" is so inclusive but 15 years ago, shonda planted a flag and set a bar that was quite high and yet hollywood still has a ways to go. >> yes, she absolutely changed the game. i don't care what anybody says. she changed the game. i remember being kind of gobsmacked by when it first came on and i thought, wait, so the asian lady and the black dude and the other black dude and black lady -- they're all like kind of equals in this world? >> reporter: 16, the number of major stars who have left fans shattered by saying good-bye to grey sloan memorial. >> there's so many people we've

>> tell that cat in the hat you do not want to play. >> ladies and gentlemen. >> reporter: ever wonder where it all came from? now, 27 years after his death, a new kind of dr. seuss book is coming out this september. "dr. seuss's horse museum," featuring theodore geisel's own words on a topic that always fascinated him, what is art? >> it's all about the creative process, how artists look at things, how they think about things and how they show us what they see. >> reporter: the manuscript and very rough sketches discovered after his 1991 passing in the same box of papers that held what became "what pet should i get." >> outrageous. >> the manuscript for this book was about 80% complete. we had no finished art whatsoever so there was no possibility that this could be a book that we would publish with ted's own art. >> reporter: so, with the collaboration of australian illustrator andrew joiner, "dr. seuss' horse museum" seeks to delight young and old in a new way coming off the page with
8:46 am
the same visual zest and exuberance. >> i think what's nice about it is, it has its origins in seuss, but it is not seuss wanna-be. he's inspired by the sketches, but he isn't hemmed in by them. >> reporter: while seuss' insight beckons riders inside the mind of artists throughout the centuries visually interpreting the horse each in their own way. >> i hope that we're really sending a message about creativity and introduce children who have never actually even heard of a museum let alone gone to one. i think that would be wonderful. >> hooray! >> reporter: for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, new york. >> and i'll bet it's going to happen, "dr. seuss' horse museum" will be available in september for kids of all ages. we'll be r
