But I also enjoy like it as well you settle in fifty. Gotta get out this Friday got a good yeah let's get to the big story in an escalation in the trade war between US and China. The midnight deadline for trade talks past overnight and that means new US tariffs on Chinese goods are taking effect. Also overnight China issued a new threat even though both sides promise to resume. Negotiations today ABC's Trevor alt is in Washington following the very latest. So Trevor we know a lot of those Chinese products we use every day could be impacted how is China responding to the terrorists. Well they're saying that they're going to have to respond today good morning T both that it but they haven't really said specifically what they're trying to do what we do know is this is a pretty major tariff hike we're talking about 200 billion dollars worth of Chinese products coming to the United States this terrorist rising from 10%. All the way up to 25%. As you mentioned we use so many of these products all the time the president. Announced this tariff hike back on Sunday since then we've seen the markets. Really see declines for the rest of the week they're definitely expected to be shaky when they opened today but the president says this is retribution. Against the Chinese negotiation behavior they basically work. Close to a deal and he said they tried to change it at the last minute he said they broke the deal and he had duke had no choice but to make them pay now he describes this. It's basically a win win either way either China now comes and negotiate with us we get a deal that the president likes or they don't and we see. Billions of dollars from these new tariffs the president has said that he thinks tariffs are good but of course higher costs for these Chinese products means. They're going to probably cost more for you sell electronics clothes furniture basically anything that you get made in China likely that cost is going to be passed onto the consumer. And we will see where those negotiations. How to turn out today I'm Trevor so we talked yesterday about Don junior the president signed subpoena by the Republican led senate and tell committee. So we understand the committee's chairman is now taking some heat from his own party and the president. He's not responding as well either. No and what makes this interesting about the whole subpoena is that the leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee senator Richard Burr is all Republican that means that a Republican had to sign off. On the president's son being subpoenaed and as you mentioned a lot of Republicans are not happy about that in fact very unhappy about it senator Rand Paul from Kentucky said. He called it. Overzealous persecution. Of the president's family other senators and representatives has said that it. Smacks of politics they are very unhappy about the presence and be spin because. He's already testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee back in 2074. Nine hours and our ABC White House correspondent Jonathan Karl got to ask the president how he felt. About his son being subpoenaed hugely had to say. President as he saw the Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donohue here that's the Republican led senate told me. What were surprised. I so Richard verse saying there was no collusion to a three weeks ago he went out side and somebody asked another so collision which found no collision my son is a good person. My son testified for hours and hours. My son was totally exonerated by Muller. Whole frankly does not like Donald Trump me this Donald Trump. And frankly for. My son after being exonerated to now get a subpoena. To go again and speak again after close to twenty hours of telling everybody that would listen about in nothing meeting yell I'm pretty surprised. So we're still waiting to. Known for being more of a moderate. I came to the defense of the intelligence chair Richard Bursch said he's been a great chairman and has handled this in an appropriate fashion but of course Susan Collins is known as being a champion of bipartisanship so it's not necessarily that surprising a lot of Republicans saying. As they have said from the release of the Moeller report this entire matter needs to be put to bed. It doesn't appear to be the case off. And speaking a bipartisanship it's been said that the Senate Intelligence Committee is really the only true bipartisan. Investigation that's been happening on Capitol Hill and so even though. People were still surprised about the subpoena and so we will see thank you Jim Madden maybe they took politics out of the equation. A magic that's does that on Capitol Hill that doesn't sound right yeah. That I on this Friday that if downright Arctic appreciate it thanks so tensions have also been on the rise between the US Ron secretary of state Mike Pompeo says the US does not want war but will respond swiftly if provoked. Pompeo issued the warning has the air force released images lost on of B 52 bombers are riding in the Persian gulf. It's in response to concern that Iran may be plotting an attack on US forces. Lawmakers and Alabama postpone a vote on a bill that could become the most restrictive abortion law in the country after chaos erupted on the floor of the state senate. I. Item and just. Yeah. A Christian democracy in action the legislation would. Outlaw performing abortions at any stage of pregnancy Democrats and some Republicans were outraged over a change that stripped the bill of an exception. It was brief and incest Alabama's amongst several seats recently looking to implement tougher abortion rules. Overseas Pope Francis handed down a new order a new church law that would were forced according to reports suspected cases. Of sexual abuse that medics many critics say the new papal edict still doesn't go far enough and he's Brad milk is following this story and joins us now with the latest. I guess yet you might remember it was a first when Pope Francis gathered bishops from around the world. To discuss solutions to sexual abuse in the church will now the Pope has come forward with a game plan. Just this year we've seen an Australian cardinal go to jail a French cardinal a six month suspended sentence and an American cardinal defrocked. I spoke to ABC's David Wright to cover that summit this year in Rome and asked him to explain this new rule. Well bred this is an edict from the Pope a multi appropriately so basically. New church law. That requires. Priests and nuns to report. The church authorities. Any instance they know of sexual abuse also any instance they know of of a cover up. By a senior official in the church I. It also includes in this in this mandatory reporting child pornography. So this is the first action the Pope is actually taken since. That February's summit. But many people are saying it doesn't go nearly far. This critics say the charges tried to police itself before and failed they say people let go straight to the police the Catholic Church says that does make sense in some countries but. In others were Catholics are persecuted. Church law involving civil authorities it's much more problematic. Have a lot more on this new rule from Pope Francis on start here later this morning. Listen on apple podcasts will be theater podcasting app today Kenneth. Our thanks to Brad now an update to the search for a missing young girl in Houston authorities say they've located the car Malia David's stepfather was driving the date the four year old disappeared. The silver Nissan Altima was found Thursday in a shopping mall parking lot in Missouri city Texas. Investigators say nothing suspicious was found in the car Lee Davis a stepfather says she was abducted by three men who ambushed the and knocked unconscious. When he came to he says his one year old son was with them. But Malia was gone. Police say tearing events has changed his story multiple times. The make use of stockpiling more than 1000 guns inside a Los Angeles mansion is out of jail on bond. Investigators say he is manufacturing guns illegally in the hole which is owned by a woman once linked romantically to an heir of the getting fortune. It took thirty ATF agents and police more than twelve hours to remove all those weapons. Coming up the new debate raging on social media. Forget pineapple pizza. More to this. Welcome back. We turn out that school shooting at Colorado and new details breaking overnight including new information on how the suspects got the guns used in Tuesday's attack. At a possible warning at the school months before the violence. In the wake of the chaos of that stem school shooting. We're learning that one parent warned about an event like debts. That anonymous parent calling to board of education months ago fearing a repeat of column by apt the stem school the pair outlining serious issues like bullying and violence saying some students are suicidal and violent and school. And citing the high pressure environment there. We're also learning about the schools private security card law enforcement sources say it appears he accidentally fired at least one shot. In the direction of a responding deputy. Still under investigation is whether one of his stray bullets hit a student. But the guard is being called a hero by police in this company for helping subdue one of the shooters he take every measure in his power. To prevent further harm to the students and I think he's a hero. The other shooter was disarmed by three students who leapt up from their desks one of them eighteen year old Kendrick XTO who set to graduate today. Dying a hero. Kendrick. Is like a bowling ball when he gets moving in as very hard to stop that kid when he starts going. Overnight ABC station KM GH in Denver reported investigators believe the suspects got access to the guns used in the attack by breaking into a locked gun cabinet and the home of one of their parents. Sources say investigators believe the suspects spray paint at their phrased. Expletive society on a car belonging to one of their parents before they left for school even reportedly trying to set the car on fire. Also this morning sources telling KM GH the motive of the alleged shooters went beyond bullying and involved two revenge and anger towards others at the school. Both suspects are due in court today to be formally charge. Let's go across the pot now to our friend Bruno rover at the London bureau for an update on some foreign news good morning Bruno. Let's start with the rising tensions after the US sees the North Korean cargo ship for violating sanctions. Yes we it's we've seen a sort of gentle opt take up tensions in the area can Jim young has been testing. Very short range missiles over the last week and it's seen as a sort of gentle way of pro bring in trying to breaking the arm prost. That exists in the denuclearization. Talks doesn't actually breach any of the self imposed restrictions on longer range missiles but it does indicate. The day are looking to try and get the price has got and again. Also the missiles themselves apart instant is that there looks at that Clemens of Russian missiles of the of the same type and that's solid propellant which means they can be put up very quickly. Still are actually quite a halt to track. So that does pose a new strategic challenge for the people trying to sort of control North Korea. Polls I'm finally enough in the course of their souls come out. Is that it when they were they Americans and an old prints were talking about trying to sort of soften relations that was took about cultural exchanges and Kim Jung young. Who is that possible fat as we'll now have requested that some famous American bucks basketball player has. Command to his country as part of the all told according Al that should exist social hoping to encourage that to exist between America. And both good and has been out possible diplomacy has well two days ago Dennis role but it worked he visited Camden you know a couple of times. And that's being credited in some circles went helping with food it's full the relations between North Korean America. Yeah Alberto we we candid talk left that earlier thinking about that Dennis Rodman who had been over there wondered what other basketball players may have been on the list. The surging here's some news out of Thailand we reported this -- months ago the beach that was made famous by Leonardo DiCaprio. Was closing and now we're learning it's closing and definitely. Well if not it's on a definite but it's a three years and that doing it to try and allow the nature two recover because of the pressure of Taurus coming some 5000. Tourists visited that beat every day. And so they're trying to give the place. Charles good natured who re claims basin black tipped shops apparently have made a recessions as a result. What's interesting is that this is actually part of a trend across the world. The darts towards pulled not a last how to means so success and an encouraging. Tourists to visit the country is not changing its its power via feel like and is not trying to restrict the number of tourists visiting. On and that's because so many tours of descended on little villages that picturesque Windmills wanna be taken as a nickel two and a half thousand inhabitants. But is visited by 350000. Chinese tourists every de. June farmers also complained because that second one comes love and troubles that unit saw that taking so pleased. And we seed in Venice next week that an assault charge and Taurus two bit access the town so this is a trend across the globe. We see metal forward Justin Bieber had a video and people went to visit there and they were trampled all over dense vegetation and whatnot in there at the beach it's going to be about just saw this movie on my HBO ago. Just yesterday. And I haven't thought about that movie in years and I remember correctly it did not get good reviews. So I kept 5000 tourists are there doubt bill I think that I don't think there was that's about him out of people who actually saw that movie. I think the breach was the star in that may because actually have you read the book how to read the book. No I write.

That debt adding that has led by an office happy to have an artificial light it's writes that they had to have an accident that told and it's really just did a lot to do with the vestiges of old so much more in that country I was thinking about that I'm because we don't have the time to get into the debate over your what happens overseas and US involvement other countries that are involved from the west. When it comes Afghanistan and Iraq but to see that image are right when you say that little boy should not have had to group brings that.
