And also we will take you back to Thailand where for the first time. We are hearing from thermal Booth Hugo divers who pulled off what some people thought was impossible. But first. Let's check out some of the other headlines making news right now. Several officials now say they've been reunited as many of the young children separated from their parents at the border as the hand they say some families couldn't be reunited because the c.'s concerns. Us adult film star stormy Daniels who says she had an affair with the president. Has reportedly been a rested after working at a strip club in Ohio. More than a dozen students who survived the attack at Stoneman Douglas high school are now going to court. They're suing Broward County Florida saying they quote deserve more from our law enforcement. He's in the face and voice of public John's pizza since founding its in 1984 work every day. Mountains and enhance everyday. But now company head John Schneider has resigned after using a racial slur during a conference call. He admits he used the N word on a call with he PR company about how to avoid public relations problems. You're Twitter following could take a hit today millions of accounts considered suspicious are being taken down. Twitter has been stepping up the search for breakdowns often used to boost follow where numbers today we'll start deleting them. Twitter is expected to cut tens of millions of a gap. And a new study says too many people are still taxiing into blinding. Researchers say they found in 5% increase in the number of deaths blamed on distracted driving. All right now let's get started here with president trump who is now in Britain after leading the NATO summit in Belgium and for more on this leg of his overseas trip let's bring in. Our Ian panel who is in line Dan. Now he and we understand there are quite a bit of pre tests planned for our president. Yet the setting gave going to be a very warm welcome here in London is not just the unusually halt whether you know that. Moment of weather in Britain. Is not great but actually thousands tens of thousand protestors are predicted to come out says it's gonna. Paint the scene of why we are the moment this is the so called ring of steel that surrounds. The residents of the US ambassador here in beautiful Regents Park. Normally you could wander down into this area as you can say they're all hundreds and hundreds of police here. No doubt some of them are heavily armed but I hear the tempo it's fairly locate but every now and again we still see police vehicles going by. We seen helicopters in the act we know that this is somebody was security not map. Pulled the the security forces here in London. There is a very very small protests taking place. Hoping that multiple people at two of whom I disagreeing. With each other but we know that tens of thousands more in front of the moment there are more media here. Then that all. Protestors but that is surely -- to change what they're saying is at their planning to give president from a sleepless night they will be blowing holes. They'll be blowing movers Ellis. This is a sound the south African instruments noise Emeka. That's often used in soccer games that a plan to do that trying to instruct the president's. Sleep tonight before he goes on told series of meetings leasing the queen leasing prime minister and Paulson beginning around the gulf and in Scotland as well. How they busy a couple of days ahead for the president but you know before getting there. We just talked about how he left Belgium the NATO summit where he is making claims that a number of the NATO members are now saying. Not so fast it. Yes it was a meeting that was controversial right from the get go about whose controversial in before the president arrived. In this whole series of tweets and comments to camera before it got on the plane suggesting that actually he till he's planned meeting with a Russian president that immigrants who was going to be. Easy then his meetings with other NATO members as well here in brits and but the gum is going through something of terrible eye of the breakfast said the president came out gave a press conference and he said. That the other NATO member states had agreed to increase that contribution. He talks about it being a highly significant increase. Then we sold the French presidents. And also the Italian prime me. And the German Chancellor Angela Merkel saying night the walls no. Sudden increase what we think we have is some sense of clarification but we'll get on to that let's listen to what president trump at site. I told people that are being very unhappy. If they didn't up their commitments are substantially because United States has. Been paying a tremendous amount probably 90% of the cost of NATO. And now people are going to start and countries are going to start upping their commitments so I let them know. Yesterday actually I was surprised it didn't pick it up it took till today but yesterday. I let them know that I was extremely unhappy. With what was happening and did they have substantially upped their commitment yet and now we're. Very happy and have a very very powerful very very strong NATO much stronger than it was two days ago. When I was president from speaking earlier today then there are whole series of of the statements as I was saying from different leaders of NATO countries. Disputing that characterization. Is estimated that 90% figure the president trumpet you repeatedly it slightly misleading because that 90% is actually. 70% less than 70%. And it relates to be overruled military budgets. But that bring in police horses of the moment. Authorities say SNL heists are similar people trying to work out exact you'll than they took home runs meant I think intensity agenda here is gonna move on from disagreements over NATO its future and its funding. So more domestic agenda here in Burson. In that before we let you go as you just talked about those police forces arriving you know I head this trip we're gonna take you back to where you lock. The feet department. Issued a warning to Americans. To stay alert. And be vigilant. What's that about. He that didn't go down well very well there have to be don't fear because people like item as spam what's the problem. Interestingly the matter of London city com who's not a poor relationship with the president say the least they've had a long going to assist battle. Over many months about different incidents including terrorist attacks in the president's characterization of it. That the matter of London has made it clear Americans are very welcome the protests are gonna take place are going to be about president trump and his policies. He's issued a number of statements essentially saying Americans have nothing to this isn't about you. We'd reasonably expect there will be lots of Americans also is part of the protest there of course they're of tens of thousands Americans living here in London but it. They say the nature of the special relationship is that you should be allowed to Chris eyes when you don't agree with the policies. And that's what we can see here in London who board be seeing those pictures these giants inflatable baby Donald Trump. Which is going to be flown over London tomorrow for a couple of hours that will become the central points of eight months it's gonna take place. From close to here in Regents Park. Right down to to file this whack. And organizes a predicting tens of thousands of people the president's policies all unpopular that doesn't mean that he doesn't enjoy supports it. The president said the people person like me he said they agree with my immigration policies even there that's out. That is true that there will pay a percentage of average population who do like him and do agree with those policies. That probably not the voice is that we're gonna hear over the next twenty. All around. In panel once again thank you for that report in two states and found there. Now we take you to Washington where the FBI agent the president is accusing it of committing trees and it is in the hot seat today on Capitol Hill. And for more on this we take you to appear comments. This has been a contentious hearings say the least FBI agent Peters coming under withering criticism. House Republicans were a series of text messages he sent to an FBI colleagues text messages in which offers extremely hard criticism. But that candidate Donald. Republicans say the tax as show completely biased by an agent who's working on both the Clinton email investigation and the Russian Carlo. Struck was defined thing test message in the only affected the actual work. Of those cases Democrats say Republicans simply trying to undermine. But some counsel Bob I was investigation. There's. Here times thank you very much. Now to Thailand Riordan with twelve employees and their soccer coat. They are continuing to recover at a hospital but for the first time today. We hear from some of the divers who actually need this incredible miraculous rescue happened. And injuring big Kurt who had been on this assignment got to talk to some of these divers. You know oftentimes we knew after these hue Rhodes do you realize what you did as a meeting. I didn't think filling all of them all of this do they know what they pulled off. I think they are very well aware of what they pulled off in fact they. Many times have referred to this is very calculated mission however I think they're very humble. In some of the most interesting people that we've ever met one of the divers Aaron Brown he has they diving instructing school. Here in Thailand. He actually heard about the mission and flew out the days that the British divers discovered the boys on July 2 so he immediately came at a friend. Who is somehow also involved here as they were looking for people who are expert divers. And I heat this ride to some of the tense moments. Inside that cave in fact he was telling me how the water was so thick and dark woods we heard of reports about. That you couldn't even see your hand in running your may see exactly how mr. mathison. In order to see your hand in front and you in the south. Nicknames so muddy. And also he and another diver and Nikko. Who also has a diving school here in Thailand but was actually in vaults. At that time but he flew all the way out from the Mediterranean here also on July 2 with second rather when those boys were discovered. He actually talked about. Holding the hands of some of the children who were on stretchers as they made their way out of the tape saying that it was his job to take the boys. From the water onto a stretcher make sure they removed their face mask. And hold their hands that they did panic and at that face mask off as they were transported to paramedics and on to the helicopters that some really moving. Emotional stories coming from. And I understand some of this family members it's not all of them have actually had a chance to meet with these Iverson and thank them in person. We don't know exactly what's diapers that. These are I meet the volunteer divers who we spoke to because you've got so many different factions hundreds and hundreds of divers but some of the divers. Did indeed meet with family members of the boys in person you could see them smiling you can see them just expressing their gratitude. To these priceless men who went in and put themselves in completely arm's way. Of course we know that there was one fatality a former Thai sealed it died during this mission by Andy and he's being remembered by all. Who were part of this. But for sure these these parents these aunts and uncles and cousins who. Know now that the divers really its release date their children's lives. They they can't thank them that happened back I was actually right before we went on life here I went on my phone to look up. Videos. Of the reunion there but there's also the reunion. Of the Thai Navy SEALs returning home they have a welcome home ceremony the Hadley is presented to them. By their commanders they still had them medical face masks on I don't know if that's a result of keeping their identities private I'm guessing so. I don't know advocates for health reasons but I am not a want to speculate too much but we don't know the faces behind the mask but we do know how great they wore. And many of the divers that we talked to that that they are the true heroes. The British divers who first found the children that your heroes the volunteer divers were very crucial to this mission means they would do. Pretty much everything and anything that they were asked to do. Out the divers that we spoke to today they told us that they would do anything from hold oxygen tanks to follow the rope line because it was a rope line. Through that muddy murky water all the way to the section where the boys were capped. A rather traps and it is very very remarkable to hear these stories of bravery. And just fearlessness in the face of great danger. With. And Adrian. It is what an assignment to be on. At last but not least talk to us about your tie in Thailand it's not often you get to talk about the happy ending. As great to have a happy ending I think this is a story that a lot of people are rallying around because it is one. But also because it's a story unity and and the divers talked about that itself all of these different experts from all around the world. Whether they were with the military or like some of the divers and talk to volunteering. There all going to be saying by the king of Thailand that he's already extended them honors for them. Here at the hospital you know that the coach and the kids are still recovering and recovering quickly. And again that's a wonderful story to tell that they were able to get out safely and that they're going to be all right. With aging be anchored in Thailand thank you so much. Well from one miracle to another this one in Alaska where all eleven plane onboard a plane. Off rather on a plane that crashed as you see there on a mountainside they also bind. And now we are hearing from one of the passengers. ABC's will Clark has that story. Good morning ladies were hearing from one of the passengers who was on that flight that crash landed into the side of a mountain in nearby prince of Wales island not far from. Where we are now she says it was a terrifying experience and she is profusely thankful to the Coast Guard that swept in and hoisted the eleven people who were on that plane. Up to say. You see that how Cabrera took I was just talent here is really. It was amazing that it remains. Now we actually spoke to back crew they say there were perilous conditions there. On the ground there was dense fog it was. Very difficult to see they say the pilot actually had about up point 1% chance of making that crash landing in keeping a plane intact we've learned that he is a former navy seal and commercial aviator that experience likely helped him pull off. The impossible as for everybody who was on that plane. We've been told that they were battered and bruised but they're all doing. Okay the NTSB is now investigating the cause of this grassy actually had to hike up to the site in that wreckage. Is still on the side of the mountain. Liz. We'll car I think you now to weather across America where we are talking about a heat wave some more flooding and the latest on hurricane Chris. Here's ginger deep to bring us up to date. Live thank you wanna take your credit to the the pictures because the monsoon has been really active in the southwest and we got this the Safeway that was on fire. Not because of lightning but actually because of flash flooding causing an electrical fire that's what started that there's that's just one of the effects you can have but lightning one of the most deadly parts of the monsoon. He saw that striking you're a Colorado. Just a little warning that more of those that come especially as the afternoon evening progressed you see all that gulf moisture fueling and now the big part of the last couple of days. Now we're starting to see a little Pacific influence some of that ridge breaking down allowing the heat to subside but the monsoon. To only amplify seat got those flash flood watch as these content really really slowly and that's part of probably at least training are very slow moving thunderstorms and only five miles per hour. They can easily drop one to three inches of rain. I want taking Atlantic now where we've been watching Chris it's dying but it's still taken up the ocean she'll see highway is the rip current threat is high especially in coastal New England. As apples away we have one not a threat to talk about now be in the way of severe storms there are 27 severe storm reports one of them a torn you know Antonin Minnesota. And now with got another threat for severe storms along the cold front's gonna go from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan right back to Minneapolis. Into South Dakota south a lot of things to talk but analysts. Think you ginger. And finally we take you back to land in to talk some tennis where the men's and women's top tennis stars are fighting it out for the annual Wimbledon championship and Blake in the middle of it all is our Julia McFarlane where Julie I have to be honest. I played some field hockey and lacrosse and high school but not so much tennis so this kind of new to me but I do you know Wimbledon this is the big deal. So walk me and propped other and knocked such Big Ten is. Experts here. How big a deal with. Exactly Palin isn't it obvious so much it's I'm hearing off final day. Open but an icon took too loudly right now because that is a much going down just underneath us. A doubles match but just a few minutes get you to have a wall of noise erupting from just at my soda Henman hill the crowd got hit because Serena Williams justice swiftly dispatched her latest a patent. In straight sets he's on terrific woman with me six claymore is ESPN's Mary Jensen out of a marriage I have to say. It's amazing to achieve because you have such amazing thing to say because you have actually decent student would indefinitely and rose tell us more plus lastly how what you thought attacked and I expect I thought she looked really good again I think the last two matches and. Her best matches she's gotten better with every single round. It's incredible. She just had a baby last September. This is her fourth tournament in a year and a half she's only played thirteen matches and he's in the finals of Wimbledon and in that just says it all Serena Williams can do it all she super remained. Com she's impressed everybody agrees she is just. She is not really cementing. Status as a legendary tennis I can't she's not showing any signs of slowing dynasty know it apparently her daughter's motivating her she says she wants. Her daughters here when many all major titles she's trying to win her 24. Overall her eighth Wimbledon. And before the tournament started I have to be frank with you I wasn't sure the she was gonna go all the way because. I thought she needed more matches I thought she needed to consider all the she's worked her way in any each match she's improved her serve has been dominant means she's looks so good on serve the last few matches. And then she's moving better so when you have that combination she's really hard to be. And she has been that she's been plainly must be made given up by accident but still sometimes happen because it had little bit of an injury was not related to the Packers had a baby you'll well it was only her third retirement actress playing doubles with her sister Venus so I think the matches caught up sources she had a bit of picked oral muscle injury. She took a few days off didn't practice or serve for a few weeks but then she got here. And it's not like riding a bike is that she never forgets how to plan brass Sheen never forgets that motivations and a determination. I think anybody wants it more than Serena Williams and that's why when you see her out there. She has its aggression and this solemn demeanor that really is intimidating for everybody else. A truly amazing tennis icon and of course she's woman was then seven times before and she stays nice sign of 1 morning it any less maintenance at thank you so much talking to us they feel I'm of course the issue is star American plant but she's got such a good label clothing and that was so apparent by the screams can present on the tenth. You can be sure that everyone is going to be hearing here in London and unpleasant on Sus they for the finalists say and they show you what's that list but Nike. Jillian MacFarlane thank you very much. And I think you for watching that's different here at ABC news live but remember you can get the very latest on all of these stories and much more at any time here at TV niece dot com. And on are out there. For now on with the terror in New York.
