7:03 am
of good versus evil. this morning, president trump meeting with one leader after the next. egypt's president laying on the praise, saying president trump has a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible. it prompted laughter in the room. and the president's response? >> i agree.

7:04 am
>> reporter: the centerpiece of the trip comes later this morning. a speech to the muslim world on extremism. president trump expected to use a softer tone on islam than his campaign trail rhetoric. >> i think islam hates us. >> reporter: not likely to be a focus of that speech? human rights. as a woman here in saudi arabia, i wouldn't even be allowed to go into this door at a mcdonald's. i would have to go through this side that says family section. completely segregated. there's a wall here that keeps the women separate from the men. while the president was in town, country star toby keith holding a free concert here. american flags lining the stage. in the audience? men only. women? not allowed. now, human rights groups rank saudi arabia among the ten least free countries in the world. women here are denied such basic rights as driving a car. while the trump white house says it does not want to lecture countries about human rights,
7:05 am
ivanka trump is here attending a forum on women's issues. she said that while there has been progress in this country, there is still much work to be done. dan and paula? >> cecilia, thank you. cecilia vega leading us off this morning. let's bring in abc's jon karl who is also traveling with the president. john, good morning. considering the type of rhetoric we heard from then-candidate trump during the campaign are you surprised by the warm welcome he's receiving? as he arrives there in the heart of the muslim world? >> reporter: well, it is something else to see him welcomed in the muslim world the way he has been by islamic leaders from all around the world. not just saudi arabia. it's surprising the president chose the birthplace of islam to be the place he would visit the very first foreign country as president. but in a sense, it's not surprising. if you look at what the saudis are -- their relations to the united states. they were very upset with the obama administration, especially for obama as what they saw, his
7:06 am
embrace of iran. the iran nuclear deal. they see donald trump as someone who will be much tougher on their enemy. the nation of iran, and somebody who won't lecture them on human rights, so they -- despite that anti-islamic rhetoric we heard from trump during the campaign, they actually welcome his policies as president. >> the next stop for trump, prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying the citizens of israel will receive trump with open arms. so what are the prospects for restarting the peace talks when he travels to israel? >> reporter: well, it's a very, very steep climb. but he is going to be meeting with the leaders -- the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas as well. the way the administration sees this, this moment in the arab world with the arab world -- so much of the arab world united against the threat of iran. what the white house hopes, the foreign policy advisers hope is that this will mean more support for the israeli-palestinian peace talks from the arabs.
7:07 am
because now israel is not the common enemy. it's iran. they hope that can be used as a way to restart these peace talks. obviously, it's a very steep climb. >> all right, jon karl. thank you. safe travels to you as well. we want to bring in our chief anchor george stephanopoulos. who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. george, good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. >> we know you have a big interview with the president's national security adviser, general h.r. mcmaster. we have a clip where you ask him about the reports of what the president said to top russian officials in the oval office the a day after he fired james comey. let's take a listen. >> the president of the united states telling the russian foreign minister in the first meeting that the pressure is off because he's fired the fbi director investigating russian interference in the campaign. does that seem appropriate to you? >> as you know, it's very difficult to take a few lines, to take a paragraph out of what are -- appear to be notes of that meeting. the intent of that conversation was to say, what i would look to do is to move beyond all of the russia news so that we can find areas of cooperation.
7:08 am
>> looks to be a great interview. the president, as you know, is traveling with some of his closest advisers. according to reports, one of these officials may be a person of interest in the fbi investigation. do you expect this to be a cloud over his trip? >> coming off this week, this was probably the most battering week of the trump presidency. you had the headline with the president giving away classified information to the russians. you had the headline in the same meeting with the russians, 24 hours after the president fired james comey, he called comey a nut job and said the pressure is off because he's no longer investigating. you had these other reports that james comey felt the president was trying to get him to drop the investigation. this was a tough, tough week. the white house hoping this is going to be a break. you have to say that so far, at least, they're getting a bit of a break overseas, a very warm welcome in saudi arabia. so far. the trip is going along with no hitches at all. we'll get the big speech from the president, as well. this is something they're hoping will calm everything down. before they come back home.
7:09 am
>> and you mention the speech. this is the centerpiece of the day. the president delivering a speech about fighting terrorism. to many, many dozens of arab leaders. as you look at what the president is saying, what do you take away? >> most remarkable, the break from the campaign. all during the campaign, he said radical islamic terror. the president said flatly, islam hates us. this is very different. the president saying now this is not a war between religions. even more significant perhaps, according to white house aides is what we're going to hear from the saudis as well. the saudi king calling out these terrorists, these extremists saying, that is not islam. that is something that the white house sees as major benefit of this trip. if the saudis stick to the it -- they have been extreme backers in the past, but if they stick to that commitment, it would be a significant achievement. >> you talked about the warm welcome from the saudis. it's gone off without a hitch. they are treating trump like royalty. do you think this could be seen
7:10 am
as an early foreign policy victory for trump? and also a rejection of obama's foreign policy? >> the saudis clearly did not like president obama at all. the white house trying to capitalize on that. the president does appear to have a warm relationship. so much will depend on whether this can lead to long-term benefits. lead to saudi arabia really taking on islamic extremism. he heads to israel next. will the president's hope for progress in the middle east peace come forward? we're not going to know for awhile. first day, decent start. >> big day for the president. big day for you, george. big reminder. george will have the rest of his one on one with national security adviser h.r. mcmaster. plus house oversight committee chairman jason chaffetz. and ranking member elijah cummings. they discuss the latest on the russia investigation and the appointing of a special counsel. that is coming up later this morning on "this week" here on abc. thank you, george. >> thank you again, george. we move to the breaking news this morning. a new missile launch in north korea, just hours ago. >> we're continuing to gather more information as we're on the air this morning. north korea seemingly speeding
7:11 am
up its development of nuclear weapons and missiles. and following the story this morning, our gloria riviera, who is in our washington bureau. good morning, gloria. >> reporter: good morning, paula. that's right. this morning, another provocative move from north korea. the country conducting its eighth missile test this year, just hours ago. from a site in the western part of the country. south korea's military is reporting the unidentified projectile, flew about 310 miles coming down into the sea of japan. both south korea and the u.s. are currently analyzing this launch for further details. the latest move comes just one week after north korea successfully launched a kn-17 missile. that feat was celebrated with a massive parade may 19th, staged to hail missile developers as national heroes. that missile was seen as a success for the height it reached. an altitude of over 1,200 miles. as well as the distance, traveling about 435 miles before it, too, came down in the sea of japan. that altitude is seen as evidence that north korea making
7:12 am
progress on its missile program's long-range capabilities and possibly testing re-entry technology. in a statement, the white house indicated, it does not believe this latest rocket to be another kn-17, but a shorter missile. despite calls to stop, north korea's leader kim jong-un persists. president trump has suggested tougher sanctions. last week, the u.n. called again for an immediate halt. but today, south korea's new president is convening an emergency meeting in response to all of this. we'll be watching. dan? paula? >> we'll be watching. thanks for your reporting. moving on, a popular nba star says he was detained at a an airport overseas. he'll be filling us in later today on exactly what happened. >> we're talking about oklahoma city thunder's enes kanter. he's blaming the incident on his outspoken criticism of leader president trump welcomed to the white house just last week. and abc's eva pilgrim has more. >> reporter: this morning, an outspoken nba player headed back to the u.s. after being detained overseas.
7:13 am
his passport revoked. >> we were in romania. they said they canceled my passport by turkish embassy. they've been holding us for hours. by the police. >> reporter: enes kanter, the 6'11" center for the oklahoma city thunder, and swiss-born turkish citizen was traveling, working with his children's foundation when he was held inside a romanian airport. >> the reason behind it is just of course, my political views. >> reporter: saying his passport was canceled because he spoke out against turkish president erdogan and spoke out about the recent protesters by erdogan's security detail. >> you know him by he's attacked the people in washington. he's a bad, bad man. he's a dictator. >> reporter: this is not the six-year nba veteran's first time facing backlash over his political views. last july, kanter reportedly received death threats, some on social media, after criticizing the turkish government after a terrorist attack. >> the fact that he's felt emboldened to talk about that. we should expect it. frankly, we should welcome it. athletes are finding their voice
7:14 am
in a way we haven't seen since since the 1960s. >> reporter: romanian officials are reporting he wasn't locked up and was free to roam around the airport after being stuck for several hours. kanter did get permission to fly to london, and is scheduled to arrive in new york today where he's planning to give a press conference. >> continuing to be outspoken. eva, thank you. a lot of other news. for that, we kick it over to dr. ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> not my medical degree. >> not bespectacled today. >> no, that was yesterday. good morning to you. dan, paula, eva. and robert, good morning. good morning, everyone. we begin with the man accused of driving into a crowd of pedestrians in times square last week now speaking out. in a jailhouse interview, with "the new york post," richard rojas says he wants to apologize to his mother. the 26-year-old says he doesn't remember driving his car into people. killing one person. rojas, who had a history of drunken driving arrests, says he's been trying to get help to fix his life. police say he admitted being
