>> my friend sent a video. he saw that we did this story. he put his dog on the bed and tried it. the dog sits there. couldn't good morning, america. breaking news as we come on the air. president trump declares victory. >> they really stepped up their commitment and stepped it up like they never have before. >> after those tense talks with our allies, the president claims nato allies increased defense spending, says the u.s. commitment to nato remains strong. now he heads to london where he'll meet with the british prime minister and the queen. protests there already under way. also breaking overnight, stormy daniels arrested. the adult film star who says she had an affair with donald trump taken into custody during one of her shows. her lawyer now calling it a sting operation. lightning danger. this tree splitting apart in colorado and the monsoon storm
hitting causing this grocery store in arizona to completely go up in flames. crossing the line. the man who played borat under fire. >> it's nice. >> did he trick sarah palin into an interview pretending to be a disabled veteran? and dupe other leaders all as a stunt for his new show? the call to boycott now. and, remarkable recovery. the young soccer team trapped in that cave for weeks now flashing the victory sign from their hospital beds. their families watching them behind the glass. now two of those brave divers who were in the cave helping with the rescue are speaking out on "gma" for the first time. and we do say good morning, america. great to have you with us on this thankful thursday. and we're thankful to see images like this. so wonderful to see those boys
doing well in the hospital. >> it sure is. and in just a moment for the first time, we hear from some of the divers who were in that cave during the rescue helping the boys get out. they're going to reveal just how dangerous it got. >> even more perilous than we thought. we're going to begin with the breaking news out of brussels. president trump emerging from an emergency meeting in nato to declare victory claiming he has convinced our allies to contribute more to nato's defense. that comes after confrontational talks ahead of the president's meetings with the queen in england, president putin on monday. our chief foreign correspondent terry moran is tracking it all from brussels. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. i think it's fair to say nato has never seen anything like donald trump. from the moment he arrived here he went on the attack like a bull in a china shop issuing such dire and drastic threats that it plunged the summit into this emergency meeting today. it raised questions among some allies whether he was preparing to pull the u.s. out of the alliance altogether. but others thought it might just
be a trumpian negotiating tactic, all part of the art of the deal. this morning, president trump declaring victory over america's allies claiming he has successfully forced germany and other nato members to pay substantially more of the costs of the alliance. >> yesterday i let them know that i was extremely unhappy with what was happening. and they have substantially upped their commitment. yeah, and now we're very happy and have a very, very powerful, very, very strong nato. much stronger than it was two days ago. >> reporter: earlier president trump arriving at the nato summit late and alone. determined to fundamentally change america's relationship with our closest allies. hammering out angry tweets overnight targeting germany and other nato allies on their defense spending. presidents have been trying unsuccessfully for years to get germany and other rich nato nations to pay more toward protection from russia. they pay only a fraction of their cost. the u.s. pays tens of billions of dollars too much to subsidize europe.
and loses big on trade. the president's demands triggering an emergency nato meeting, reports that trump threatened to pull the u.s. out of the alliance it founded almost 70 years ago. his ultimatum, nato members must increase their defense spending repeating that request overnight tweeting, all nato nations must meet their 2% of gdp commitment. and that must ultimately go to 4%. right now the u.s. only spends 3.5% on defense and has massive military commitments around the globe far from europe. from the moment he arrived, the president has been on the attack, spending much of yesterday going after germany for its recent $12 billion gas pipeline deal with russia. and tweeting overnight, pipeline dollars to russia are not acceptable. but the president was all smiles when meeting with french president emmanuel macron. >> merci beaucoup. >> it sounded beautifully. i have no idea. it sounded great.
>> i have to say, i -- also the same. >> reporter: making small talk at the class photo. first lady melania trump there even chatting with german chancellor angela merkel over wine. so, when all is said and done, president trump says he has strengthened the nato alliance and for all of his fire and fury he claims he's got very warm personal relations with all of the leaders, including chancellor merkel. >> he said that's what it was like behind closed doors. now terry, the president downplayed the idea that he threatened to leave nato if the allies didn't come forward with new commitments. and we still don't know exactly from those allies what they committed to. >> reporter: he wants them to pay more for their defense but since he became a candidate he has questioned the very need for nato. he called it obsolete on the campaign trail. that hangs over this alliance like a dark shadow. so as he comes at them, they aren't 100% sure if his request for them to spend more is real or a pretense for him to change
america's relationship with the alliance altogether. >> the president also said the nato allies thanked him for meeting with president putin on monday. and he gave a preview of the meeting, said he would bring up russian meddling in our election and the annexation of crimea but seemed to shift blame to president obama. >> reporter: he does. he has done this before. he says that the annexation of crimea and frankly the war in eastern ukraine which represents the first time european borders have been changed by force since world war ii, he says that's president obama's problem. i wouldn't have allowed it to happen. suggesting that it's not going to be an issue high on his agenda. it is an issue high on europeans' agenda. they've seen this movie before, when russia starts tearing chunks off other countries, and would like it to stop. >> now the president heading to great britain. terry moran, thanks very much. michael. >> thank you, george. now, to that breaking news overnight, stormy daniels arrested during one of her shows taken into custody, and our chief justice correspondent
pierre thomas has the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: michael, good morning. that's right, the arrest of the adult film star happening overnight. it was during a performance at a strip club. this morning her attorney is crying foul. overnight, what started as an adult nightclub appearance in columbus, ohio, ending in an arrest for porn star stormy daniels. daniels seen here in handcuffs, a police officer leading the way. in a series of tweets, her attorney michael avenatti saying daniels was arrested for allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a nonsexual manner. avenatti also claiming the arrest was a setup and politically motivated. adding, it reeks of desperation. we will fight all bogus charges. but authorities claim otherwise. writing that daniels formerly known as stephanie clifford forced the faces of patrons into her chest, among other actions, including inappropriately touching female patrons. daniels made headlines for her involvement in the political scandal involving president trump's former attorney michael
cohen. >> for years, mr. cohen has acted like he is above the law. he has never thought that women, even more, women like me, mattered. that ends now. >> reporter: cohen paid daniels $130,000 a month before the presidential election to stop her from discussing an affair she allegedly had with trump in 2006. cohen initially denied making the payment, but later said the payment was made with his own money. daniels, who was released, is due in court friday morning for a 9:00 a.m. arraignment. her attorney is tweeting that she will plead not guilty to misdemeanor charges. robin. >> all right, pierre, thank you. now to that miracle rescue in thailand. this morning, new video showing the families of that soccer team meeting the rescuers who saved their sons' lives. as the boys recover in the hospital this morning, abc's adrienne bankert is still there and, adrienne, you had the opportunity to speak with some of those divers who were in the cave during the rescue.
>> reporter: yes, robin. they're saying this was so unreal. many saying this was the most challenging dive they'd ever taken on. another describes how in a full wet suit with all that heavy gear, at some points they're diving in the cave and other times trudging through the mud all while carrying those children out on stretchers from that cave. this morning, you can see that highly calculated plan in action. new video shows how teams of expert divers pulled those 12 boys and their coach from the belly of that cave. >> our job was to get the kid out from the water. take the full face mask off, put him in a stretcher gently holding their hands so they don't get tangled or if there is distress, they don't start to pull the mask off. >> reporter: divers from arnold around the world who came to assist are speaking out about conditions inside that cave as oxygen ran low. if you could rank, 1 to 10, how
hard this was, 13, 17? >> you couldn't see this. you couldn't see this. it wasn't until you touched your own mouth you could see your hand. pulling yourself along the rope and smacking your head into rocks. we did exit the cave fairly quickly. >> describe the feeling rippling through the camp there at the cave when everybody knew we got the last boy out. we got the coach out, it's a wrap. >> it was actually quite silent. we were kind of like, this actually worked. >> reporter: a thai diver from bangkok says he was familiar with the area's dangerous caves. >> how many of you? >> reporter: he never imagined that this could ever happen. >> the first day i arrived there on monday night, started working side by side with the s.e.a.l. team on tuesday morning. this is the most difficult dive i have ever been to. >> reporter: this video shows them being carried all the way out, one of the soccer players seen on a stretcher wrapped in a blanket before medical teams quickly step in to transport him to the hospital. and some of the divers have met with the boys' families, who thanked them, as well as the nation of thailand. celebrating their remarkable mission.
>> we've been talking about this with the guys and nobody has ever heard of such a big operation and especially that ends up this good. >> reporter: and here at the hospital the boys are still recovering. they'll be here for about a week then go home and recover for another month. the divers we spoke to say they hope to meet the boys and are calling the british divers who found them first as well as the thai royal navy the true heroes. robin? >> a lot of heroes going around. thanks so much, adrienne, and must have been something for the families to meet the rescuers for the first time like that. >> important. great to see the boys doing well, as well. >> it is. we'll move on to that wild weather out west. storms led to this fire in phoenix, it destroyed a phoenix grocery store. there is also some flooding in new mexico. ginger covering it all. good morning, ginger. >> 'tis the season because we are in monsoon season which is a shift in the wind and a seasonal thing that happens in the southwest and, yes, that safeway up in flames. it was reported originally
because of lightning but we called this morning. our intern sam actually called and it was because of flash flooding causing an electrical fire. it sent that thing up in flames. i want to take you to ouray, colorado. one of the other threats from the monsoon, that would be lightning. you can see that tree bursting into flames there, as well. and from arizona, this is what it looks like from above, when the skies turn and you have that monsoon come in. and then they sit there. that's the issue with these storms is that they move very slowly. the setup is like that you have that big ridge with all the high, hot pressure in the middle of the country and moisture coming in here, also influence from the pacific now and that's where we'll see the storms popping up. why we have flash flood watches for much of new mexico you can see -- sorry, nevada, parts of new mexico and colorado. all right, a whole lot more coming up for now but we'll head over to you guys. >> all right, ginger, thank you. and now to the survivors of that plane crash in alaska. all 11 people on board this floater plane somehow able to walk away after it crashed on a mountainside.
this morning we're seeing video of the dramatic coast guard rescue helicopter and hearing from one of the passengers. abc's will carr has the story. >> reporter: overnight new video of that dramatic rescue on the side of a treacherous mountain in alaska. watch as this coast guard crew pulls one plane crash survivor after another to safety in perilous conditions. >> the whole effort, it was amazing. i'm going to cry, sorry, it's just incredible. >> reporter: passengers who were returning from a sport fishing resort area still emotional. >> to have to get in that helicopter and be terrified of another flight. and the pilot -- he was just calm. and they were amazing. >> reporter: another posting on facebook, i can't believe they found us. i can't believe they braved the conditions they did. 11 people survived after their float plane crashed into a mountain filled with jagged rocks and steep cliffs on prince of wales island. >> we were fully expecting fatalities just due to the sheer rock faces around the area that we were at.
>> reporter: but the pilot managed to avoid the life-threatening pitfalls. >> from your perspective what are the odds that this pilot could safely crash-land this plane, keep it intact and keep everybody safe on that flight? >> 0.1%. >> reporter: the pilot calling 911 moments after the crash. the coast guard then swooping in navigating two helicopters through dense fog. one crew member saying it was the thickest cloud cover he had ever seen. the survivors, bruised and battered, but all okay. >> nothing but 11 smiles shining back at us. they were pretty grateful that we were able to get them off the mountain. >> reporter: we learned the pilot is a former navy s.e.a.l. and commercial aviator and that experience likely helped him pull off the impossible. robin? >> happy ending there, all right, will. now to that breaking news overnight, papa john's founder resigning as chairman of the board for the pizza chain after apologizing for using a racial slur on a conference call. linsey davis is here with that story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. john schnatter allegedly used the call ironically on a conference call about how to
avoid public relations crises. the pizza executive reportedly complained that colonel sanders called blacks the "n" word without facing public backlash and he also reportedly said growing up in indiana, people used to drag african-americans from trucks until they died. schnatter confirmed the incident to "forbes" acknowledging he did use inappropriate and hurtful language adding that regardless of the context i apologize, simply stated racism has no place in our society. after backlash online he was forced to give up his board seat at the university of louisville. and wednesday the company he started announced that they accepted his resignation as chairman of the board. >> thank you. now brand new images of george clooney this morning for first time since his accident in italy. he was helped by his wife amal. clooney was riding a motor bike when he collided with a car on tuesday, flying into the air. he is on his way to filming a
new series "catch d22." he was taken to the hospital, released shortly after and we hope he's continuing to do well. michael. we'll turn to good news, it depends who you're a fan of. >> if you're croatia. >> the world cup, yes. and those moments of celebration and heartbreak in the semifinals match between croatia and england. england came out strong. scoring at the top, scoring the first goal of the game and take a look at how the fans celebrated. all that good beer going to waste. just throw it up in the air, people. but it did not last. croatia tied it up in the 68th minute right here with that score. >> oh, that was -- >> and then this moment, croatia nailing the winning goal. >> in extra time. >> in extra time. >> whoo! >> winning, 2-1. and now, one of the smallest countries to make the world cup is heading to their first one ever. they're going the face france on sunday. and to give you a perspective of how big croatia is, it's smaller than west virginia. >> yeah.
yeah. >> i think every croatian in new york were out in their cars last night. >> it did seem that way. >> they should be happy. >> you do know the president of abc news is british, okay. so you're saying that -- >> well, they had a good run. >> nice save there. nice save, michael. now back to ginger with rough surf and rip current dangers on the east coast. >> i was going to say don't call it like a breaking good news. it's just news. just news that it happened, right? i have some news for you -- it's been so beautiful along the east coast. unless you're right at the beach, that's where you're seeing rip currents. these pictures out of narragansett, rhode island. we see dozens of water rescues because the rip current is so bad because of that hurricane pulling away, that's chris. now it's a tropical storm and pulling out. either which it churned up the ocean. that's the latest there. you can see it moving away from even close to canada there. but the rip current threat still exists all the way down even into north carolina. so don't let that fool you, even though you see pictures like this where it's getting out of here. we still have a lot more to talk
iridescence on a pileus cloud. does that sound exciting? yes, there it is. it's beautiful, isn't it? >> a pileus cloud? >> yes. >> i didn't know if it was appropriate for morning television. >> now that you've seen the photo, it is. we all learned a little something today. >> we did. >> thank you, ginger. coming up, sacha baron cohen is under fire for his new show. did he dupe sarah palin by portraying a disabled veteran? and other politicians now saying they were tricked as well. some calling for a boycott. >> larry hackett will weigh in on that. and a wedding reception nightmare. the newlyweds celebrating their big day when nearly 100 guests ended up like this. so what happened? and the lawsuit this morning. come on back. so what happened? and the lawsuit this morning. come on back. onpro patients get their day a shot. with neula

comedian sacha baron cohen. she went on to add how dare you mock those who have fought and served our country? former congressman turned radio host joe walsh also irate this morning calling for a boycott of cohen's new show. >> what he's done is fundamentally dishonest. >> reporter: walsh alleges that the comedian's team invited him to a pro-israel event in d.c. this past february. he said they presented him with this award for his, quote, significant contributions to the state of israel. >> to deceive me and say that, you know, to make up an israel tv station and give me a big award, that's offensive and that's a pretty low blow. >> reporter: showtime and cohen haven't commented. >> in my country, they would go crazy for these two. >> reporter: now, joe walsh calls this the strangest interview of his life. he believes baron cohen is out to embarrass people.
palin chose to air that and donate to charity. others might feel it's funny. others feel it crossed the line. >> we're joined by larry hackett managing partner at 10ten media. impersonating a disabled veteran. is that not crossing the line? >> we have to see what it looks like and see what takes place in the show. i personally don't find his theater of humiliation very funny. but installing rules on this before we see it seems hasty. i find it unusual that, you know, that these people are, you know, protesting ahead of time. i mean, if cbs should do anything, he should give their advertising money and marketing funds to sarah palin and thank her for creating attention for this show. >> this is nothing new with comedians. political satire if you will, but these are very sensitive times. >> deejays have been doing it for 50 years calling up some store and saying they're somebody. this is not new and as your piece indicated this is what his career is built on. i find it mystifying people can
still get duped by him. i think you have to see what it looks like andhe attention for the show is now going to be huge. this is a show that many weren't going to watch. now everybody will watch it. >> perhaps. so joe walsh is calling for a boycott. we heard what paula said about what sarah palin is saying, okay, send the proceeds to veterans in need. you think any of that will happen? >> no, i don't think that's going to happen. let's see what happens with the show. i don't think that's going to happen. no one has seen what he's done. i think people who have been humiliated on the guests who went on the show. whether or not he humiliated and desecrated the memory of wounded warriors, let's wait and see. >> you think this plays into the hands of sacha baron cohen and promotion. >> absolutely. this guaranteed people will watch the show. who will not pay attention to it now? you want to see what the fuss is about. >> i think i won't be one that will watch it. let's go on record here. larry, thanks so much. michael. >> thank you so much, robin. now to the south carolina
