Our meeting today in England for the G-7 summit. The group is committing to donating one million common vaccines jobs to foreign nations. And announcing plans free 15% of global corporate tax we have the latest from core mom and a moment. An ABC news has confirmed the New York Times report that the trump Justice Department secretly ceased communications data from two house Democrats in the hunt for leaks. The DOJ secretly subpoenaed apple for that data on congressman Adam shift and Eric's post ball well both vocal critics of president Trout. Apple turned over Mitt data but no emails or bono's.

President Biden joined UK prime minister Boris Johnson and the leaders of France Germany Italy Canada and Japan. For that tradition also called family photo before getting down to business. National correspondent Rachel Scott joins us live from arm while with the latest on the summit. Rachel what is some of the big issues on the table this time around and what kind of challenges do you think Biden could face here. Well this first time Diane that all of these world leaders are for higher gathering. Amid a global pandemic they have not seen each other president has not stepped foot on. Foreign soil in more than 400 and it's been days of certainly a lot to discuss here everything ranging from climate change. To the pandemic to getting more vaccines to other countries that eat them. Discussing some of the cyber attacks that the United States believes that Russia is behind so that is going to be a clear point of focus. But back the G-7 summit that is happening right now but also some of the challenges that we're gonna see the president faces really convincing these allies. That Amir back this message that the president is bringing to our allies but he didn't do Whipple cash. Over the last several years former president Donald Trump he pulled the United States from the pairs climate accord heater and two leave need no calling it obsolete. And so now president Biden is going to have to convince these allies that this time is going to being different he's also bring a message democracy works. But I can tell you that those images of the insurrection at the capitol on January 6 and made its way across the world. So you have to convincing -- also that it's working back home as well Diane. The regional leaders have agreed to this 15% global tax on corporations howl that work. And what are they trying to accomplish with that. This is having that the president and the White House have been pushing for so they are pretty pleased by this. I've being that did that that this is actually pushing through here is his and that they've been pushing for they're trying to pay for their larger domestic agenda back home so this is going to make it so that companies pay the same tax rate regardless of where their headquarters arts missile for bad. Companies from paying a little bit lasts if they decide to have their headquarters in a different part. Of the world to me that is important the United States as. I'm but it's a look at ways to go hear what the are hoping is that by getting disagreement you're at the G-7 that this is now going to be a springboard. Leading into the G-20 in that other countries we'll have to come on board but. Every government including right back home in congress they're gonna have to approve this first before it actually goes into effect time and buy and set to meet the queen later this weekend Rachel what kind of a role. We'll see in the rest of the royal family play and in terms of being on the sidelines of this summit. Yeah how long Biden will become the third president to meet with the queen all we back to 1951. Actually. The queen was actually princess she traveled to the White House and that Truman at this time instead that I'm the world looks to the United States for hope and for democracy. And regardless of politics and talked about the winter blast of any of our allies have the experience over the last several years over the last several decades rather. I'd look bins sort of the stable figure she has and that. With all of our leaders. Of our country and so once again we're gonna see this happen today they're going to be holding a reception the queen inviting some of these world leaders. Over Adobe meeting face to face. Needing thirteen. US presidents basic face pretty incredible. And racial all of these events lead up to Biden's summit with Vladimir Putin next we catch you think. These meetings that he's having now could influence how he handles that meeting next week. Yeah how well the White House has said that they believe that the president Biden's going to be heading into this and meeting with President Putin what the wind out his back in and that's another core focus. A BG seven summit is making sure that all of the allies are communicating with a one waste. Against the rash act I this is going to be a very blunt meeting it's a deadly high stakes meeting expectations though. Are rather well what they want to go into this with this passion and if ands and president Biden has made it clear that he wants a stable but predictable relationship. With rash and with President Hu and but it's unclear just what that looks like when as we know Russia has been very unpredictable. Especially this year all right. Angels got thank you so much Rachel and you can watch our full coverage of the Biden prudent summit next Wednesday June 16 right here on ABC news lives.
