good morning. i'm janai norman. >> i'm kenneth moton. here's some of the top headlines we're following this morning on "world news now." historic step. president trump becomes the first american president to stand on north korean soil. his third face-to-face meeting with kim jong-un ended with an agreement to revive talks and the prospect of welcoming kim to the white house. investigators are getting to work at the site of a deadly plane crash near dallas. all ten people on board the small plane were killed when it collided with a hangar and burst into flames. the plane was supposed to fly to st. petersburg, florida. kevin durant will call new york city his nba home for the next four years. the two-time finals mvp will make brooklyn the center of the big apple's basketball universe after saying "no thanks" to the knicks. wimbledon begins today with
two americans facing each other. venus williams against cori gauff, who is just 15 years old, the youngest woman to qualify for the main draw in the open era. she said it's a dream to face one of her idols, now she gets the chance to do just that. those are some of our stories on this monday, july 1st. good monday morning. happy july 1st. >> we made it. >> july. >> july. >> my goodness. >> the countdown to christmas. >> oh. all right. >> do you want to know what july 1st is? >> what, the beginning of your birthday month. >> yeah, she knows. you know we like to celebrate all month. >> yeah. let the celebrations start. thank you for joining us this morning. we do begin this half hour on the campaign trail where rival 2020 candidates are jumping to the defense of senator kamala harris. >> the democrats are slamming donald trump jr. over a tweet
questioning harris' racial identity, calling it racist and unacceptable, blaming it on the same forces behind birtherism, used to spread lies about president obama's citizenship. rachel scott has more. >> reporter: it was a raw and personal story about being a black kid in america. >> there was a little girl in california who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools. and she was bused to school every day. and that little girl was me. >> reporter: but a right wing commentator took offense, questioning senator kamala harris' racial identity. tweeting, kamala harris is not an american black, she is half indian and half jamaican. i'm so sick of people robbing american blacks like myself of our history. it drew the attention of the president's oldest son, donald trump jr., who shared it to his millions of followers asking, is this true? wow. his spokesperson telling abc news it was a misunderstanding, that don jr. asked the question because he was unaware of
harris' heritage, adding, once he saw that folks were misconstruing the intent of his tweet, he quickly deleted it. the harris campaign firing back saying, this is the same type of racist attack his father used to attack barack obama. it didn't work then, and it won't work now. referring to the so-called birther movement that falsely claimed president obama was not born in the united states. one of its loudest voices? donald trump. >> i want him to show his birth certificate. >> reporter: as a candidate for president, trump finally acknowledged obama was born in hawaii. harris' 2020 democratic rivals putting politics aside to come to her defense and going after the president's son. >> he tweeted it out, and then he deleted it. like a coward, so he can say, oh, that was just a mistake. but he knows what he's doing. he's giving voice to these racist utterances about senator harris. >> reporter: so many of those democratic candidates came forward saying they felt like it was their obligation to say something.
and as for senator harris, there is just no question on where she stands on this. she identifies as a black american. she graduated from a historically black university. she is a member of the first black greek sorority. rachel scott, abc news, washington. >> our thanks to rachel there. i think we should not be surprised that this is coming up, and so early. that the racists would be coming out to comment about a black woman who's running for president. and when it comes to birtherism, i will say it was racist, disgusting, horrible, and wrong. we should call it for what it is. >> you're saying in this case? >> for birtherism for president obama, for this for kamala harris. also this. obviously people are saying, one can't be saying racist, others are saying it was misconstrued. there are people out there who have threatened or said nasty things about people in color, especially those who are running for president, and that's a fact. >> yes. i do agree with that. i do think birtherism is 100% wrong through and through. i don't know that that is what
this is in the case. there's a growing movement, ados, american descendent of slaves, and it is that group that looks to someone like kamala harris, who can appreciate anyone black who is running for president, but feels like if you are not an american descendent of a slave, you have different priorities, different experience in the country than maybe someone like kamala harris. so i'm just saying that that is a group that is a growing movement, that's something that was pointed out over the weekend in the discussions about this. and so i don't know that that is -- i don't know. >> i don't think it's the same. i think they're saying that there are just -- the way that they're attacking the candidates for who they are. >> yes. >> i think that's what -- the link they're trying to make here. not saying they're the exact same things. >> i don't think anyone's questioning that she was born in america. >> right. >> she is an american. >> but the harris camp, i'm pretty sure they were ready for this and they're ready to fight back at the trolls. >> absolutely. >> who come at them as well. >> yes.
president trump is touting his visit with kim jong-un as a big success after becoming the first sitting u.s. president to set foot in north korea. >> now he's back at the white house. the president tweeted that many amazing things happened over the last three days, adding that much was accomplished. the visit with kim included plans to restart stalled talks on north korea's nuclear program. abc's brad mielke has the latest. >> hey, guys, yeah. this was an historic moment. no sitting president has ever done this before. so we know this picture is going to end up in the history books. what we don't know yet is what will the caption be? when president trump walked from the demilitarized zone into north korea to greet kim jong-un, some said he was paving the way for lasting peace. critics blast it as shaking hands with a brutal dictator. in some ways this might have been even bigger than their previous two summits. abc white house correspondent
jonathan karl said an event like this would normally be highly choreographed, but this all came together within hours. >> brad, to me maybe the craziest moment was watching the incoming white house press secretary, stephanie grisham, literally elbow and shove aside a north korean security guard. >> this is not like an american flack or something, this is like a north korean dictatorship security guy. >> yeah, this is one of those guys you see running alongside the car when kim arrives somewhere. these are pretty scary-looking guys. and she, i mean, you've got to look at the tape, she really gives the guy a shove aside. but that -- the reason why you had all this chaos is because the thing really did come together at the very last minute. >> stop, stop, stop! >> calm down. >> okay, okay, okay! >> remember, guys, the trump administration says there is more goodwill between these countries. experts agree kim's nuclear arsenal remains fully intact. we'll have a lot more on this visit on "start here" later this morning. listen on apple podcasts or your favorite podcasting app.

according to dallas county court records, carrillo was released on $100,000 bond after his arrest for the murder. the victim's family tells abc news there are no words to describe how we feel. i know my son will get justice. he will pay for what he did. jurors convicted carrillo even though he was a no show. he's been sentenced to life in prison. police say they are reinterviewing family and friends, anyone that knows him, so they can convince carrillo to turn himself in. stephanie ramos, abc news, washington. facebook says it is working on a plan to stop misinformation about next year's census. >> the company's policy will prohibit facebook users from misrepresenting census requirements, methods, or logistics. facebook will use algorithms to find and delete census misinformation. the fda has named 16 brands of dog food that have been linked to heart disease in dogs. most of the foods on the list are labeled as grain-free and contain a large proportion of peas, lentils, and potatoes.
