surrounding that car rampage that cost one woman her life and also injured more than a dozen people during saturday night's unite the right rally here. the investigation includes the fbi and also the u.s. attorney's office and we can tell you that there will be lots of questions asked today exactly about how this all happened and came to fruition. take a listen. >> state of shock and panic. we couldn't believe it that it actually happened. >> reporter: the driver is in custody and habs identified as 20-year-old a text fields jr. from ohio. fields is charged with second degree murder among several other charges after he reportedly rammed his car into a crowd of counter protesters killing again a 32-year-old woman the violence all broke out saturday afternoon between reported white nationalists and opposition. this all unfolded ahead of a rally responding to the anticipated removal of a confederate robert e. lee statue.
nearby university of virginia's campus and then spilled onto the streets here in charlottesville. police in riot gear arrived eventually breaking up the crowd. state police are also investigating a helicopter crash that killed two officers who were responding to the scene. politicians and also leaders are condemning the incidents that have occurred in the last 24 hours. >> i have a message to all of the white supremacists and the nazis who came into charlottesville today. our message is plain and simple. go home. you are not wanted in this great commonwealth. shame on you. >> we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many sides. >> reporter: the officers killed in the helicopter crash have been identified
lynn from midlothian virginia. he was the pilot and also trooper pilot berk mm bates of quinton virginia. both are said to have died at the scene. back out here live the black lives matter chapter here in this area say they plan to have a rally this afternoon at 3 o'clock to mourn the 32-year-old woman that was killed in the hit-and-run accident and also the two troopers who were killed in the helicopter crash. what i can tell you, annie, is if i had to describe the feeling right now, the sentiment in this area as we were driving to this scene near emancipation park near university of virginia's campus i would say it is eerily calm and quiet considering the incidents that unfolded just last night and into the early hours of the morning. back to you. >> yeah, tisha, i was going to say it seems very quiet behind you and we know that the police chief al thomas he was given the power yesterday by the city council to enforce a curfew, if necessary. as of 9 o'clock last night, a curfew was not put i
any word on that this morning? >> reporter: you know what, we'll be checking into that annie. what i can tell you is that beyond the curfew there are several road closures in this area. we almost had to navigate our way in creative to get to this area here at the statue and here also to emancipation park. there were a lot of road closures. many of these barricades that you're seeing here in this area are across the area and just blocking many of the streets. you can see that there are several police officers on scene and what's probably what's most noticeable and indicative of the aftermath and just how chaotic it did get out here is you can see that there's garbage pretty much everywhere that has yet to be cleaned so i'm sure at some point this morning, there will be a cleanup process and cleanup crew in place to restore normalcy here at emancipation park in charlottesville.

>> coming up at 7:30. if i-66 is part of your daily commute you may be wondering if your wallet is getting whacked by the newly installed e-z pass system. lights are flashing as drivers cruise by the overhead e-z pass leaders but the hot lanes don't go live for another few months. bob barnard has the story. >> reporter: well, this is a test, only a test until december. vdot is experimenting with its new toll grantries. nine of them between the beltway and rosslyn. as you can see, some drivers are saying what the heck is going on? these things are flashing. it's basically a test of the system here that will eventually flash the light at this toll plaza when cars have
indicating that they have two or more people in their car. the flashing light will eventually let law enforcement know that that car should have to or more people inside of it and if it doesn't, they could be pursued and ticketed. the hot lanes which will go into that effect early december between the beltway and rosslyn will allow you to use the hov lanes for a fee if you're in your car alone. the amount of the tolls will rise and fall depending on traffic at the time. the hot lanes will go into effect from 5:30 to 9:30 in the morning eastbound and then westbound from 3:00 to 7:00 in the afternoon t it will no longer be a free ride if you have a hybrid car. basically this is part of an overall expansion project as vdot, northern virginia transportation officials widen and add hot lanes to i-66 all the way out to gainsville. it's to ease congestion allow for pele
use these hov lanes. the warning until december is don't be fooled by the flashing lights. this is only a test. >> ♪ in arlington county, bob barnard, fox5 local news. >> ♪ >> all right, new this morning, last night's wet weather is to blame for washington nationals star bryce harper's knee injury and it doesn't look good. you can see his leg lock up as he tried to beat out a throw to first base and this could be potentially a devastating whoblow to the team. harper was limping but walking after the game. the general manager is expected to give an update on the injury sometime today. the nats beat the san francisco giants three to one after a rain delay and the two teams face off again today. he looks like he's in so much pain. >> these guys have got stay off first base. ad dam eaton tour his acl when he hit first base and now is
morning that bryce was seen limping, limping to his car last night, so i mean, he wasn't on crutches and he was able to go on his own power. we wish the best there obviously. >> i wonder if he should have been limping. i mean, could have done more damage. >> hopefully he just sprained it or hyperextended it or all those little things you can do to tweak a knee. he'll have plenty of time to rest it. >> good weather for the game. >> it's beautiful. playing a double-header today and so it's going to be really nice. we still have a few clouds around overhead this morning but all things considered, really nice and less humidity today and we'll have a few high to mid level clouds coming across from time to time so we're not talking about perfectly sunny, not perfectly blue sky but it's still going to be real, real nice. consider this is august. i mean, it's been so, so nice the last several days for august around here and a lot of rain in some cases but temperatures have been really, really cooperative. look at columbus, ohio.
57 degrees. pittsburgh 60. i show you this because this is kind of our air mass coming down. so, not so much cooler today. i think yesterday we managed up to 85 degrees with the sunshine. even before the storms. today we're going to be right up to around 85 degrees as well. so, the cold front has moved through but it's a cold front really in name only. more than anything, it brings drier air in here which for us means lower humidities which obviously will make things a lot more comfortable today. richmond right now is 71 degrees. raleigh 74 and hatteras is 80 degrees which is exactly what it was yesterday morning at 7 o'clock. so, there you go. temperatures closer to home. gaithersburg you're 64. frederick you're 63. martinsburg 59 degrees and then down to fredericksburg it's 68. leonardtown is right around 68 degrees as well and again, here in town, 70. annie mentioned it earlier it felt a little cooler. it is slightly cooler but again we're beginning to bring the dewpoints down which means it feels more comfortable out there. not quite as humid. yesterday was very,
humid. okay, a couple of showers down to the south here. way down in southern saint mary's county there's a few showers, then back across the river and even across the bay. salisbury getting a little shower. way out in the higher elevations i don't think that's a shower but i'll watch it. i don't believe it is and all this is coming on across with a lot of ground clutter here. we have some mid to high level cloudiness right on top of us now. caught up in this southwesterly flow a loft so that will that continue. i think on and off today but the rain is to the south of us. again, well off to the east of us, the heavy thunderstorms from last night. course we did have a a lot of severe weather last night. good rainfall totals, too, and some reports unfortunately of some flooding and some damage. a lot of winds created trees down situations across the region last night but i don't think we have any tornadoes reported or anything like that. i didn't see any tornado warnings. just wanted to show you real quickly. this is satellite picture. clouds coming overhead. most of this is mid to high level stuff so it's
thick low cloudiness and we'll be dealing with this from time to time certainly during the morning hours. brighter skies in the afternoon. if you're in northern maryland or southern pennsylvania you're pretty much clear this morning. what's this brand new tropical depression out in the atlantic well east of the bahamas and north of the dominican republic and puerto rico. we'll watch this. not even a threat for us even though it probably becomes tropical storm gert but it gets caught up in a frontal boundary and a trough and kind of stays off injury. shore. front is to the south of us so we're dry, 78t82 at 2 o'clock. 84 at 5 o'clock. kind of a mix of clouds and sun coming across the area. i told you i made some changes to the seven-day forecast. yesterday we had no 90's on the seven-day forecast. uh-oh. had to bump it up. thursday 90, friday 91. saturday 90 degrees and we'll have a couple chances of showers and thunderstorms later on in the seven day period. there you go.
>> thank you. you asked about the lottery. lucky winner announced for friday's $393 million mega millions jackpot. >> what about powerball. >> powerball no,. >> last night. >> not sure. >> no winner last night. >> go check on that and let us know. >> i just did. >> the winning ticket was sold at nick's barbecue in illinois watching all six numbers drawn. the owner of the restaurant is set to receive $500,000 for selling the winning ticket. it is the largest jackpot in almost a year and the fifth largest prize in the game's 15 year history. so, no powerball winner but mega millions winner announced. time now 7:21. still ahead at 7:00 vice president pence is that headed oversees traveling to colombia as tensions increase between venezuela. people preparing for the end. find out how mounting tensions between the u.s. and other countries have some preparing for the end. we'll be right back. >> ♪

northwestern suburbs they started coming through a little bit earlier than that. a lot of severe weather out there as well yesterday. listen, not the case today. we don't have to worry about any showers, we don't have to worry about any thunderstorms. it looks like before it's all said and done this is going to be a beautiful sunday out there. not so humid today. you're really going to notice a difference especially late this afternoon. it's not going to be like it was last sunday where it was super fresh out there where the humidities really dropped but it will be noticeably less humid than yesterday so that's a good thing. still temperatures are going to be up in the mid to upper -- lower to mid 80's so it's going to be a warm one there's no doubt about that. 70 this morning. some places are starting off really cool. martinsburg, you're 59 degrees. frederick is 63 degrees and westminster 66 degrees. culpeper at 67. all right, here's the dewpoint. measurement of moisture in the air. this -- when this number comes down into the 50's it gets real comfortable. we're 65 degrees now which is about 7 degrees lower than where we were yesterday
and that number today probably ends up being right around 60 in d.c. but upper to mid-50's north and west and so again, in august with a dewpoint in the mid-50's or right around 60 degrees, that's pretty comfortable. that's bonus territory. you don't get that very often in august. that's going to happen today and that's why i say not so humid. this morning still a few showers. down through southern maryland and out towards the eastern shore and over towards the shore. salisbury getting some pretty good rain. this is headed over towards ocean city and bethany and eventually it will get offshore so you guys watching us from over there this morning just give it a couple more hours. skies will brighten, things will get a bit drier for you and it won't be a beach afternoon. in terms of the clouds we have a little bit of cloud cover coming across. we just showed you the live picture there of the white house and you can see some sunshine breaking through so that's good news. that will definitely be the trend over the next couple of hours. expect good sunshine today and that will warm things up, too. i think we're going to be back up into the middle 80'
high temperature yesterday was a muggy 85. it felt like it was almost 90 in some cases. today 85. it will feel like 85 because we're not going to have a ton of humidity. winds will be out of the north-northwest at about five to 15 miles per hour later on and again, some high to mid level cloudiness. it's not going to be perfectly sunny out there today. check on high temperatures across the region. 80's for gaithersburg, annapolis 83 degrees. really nice over there by the bay. leonardtown 81 and culpeper 86 and since i have a few more seconds here why not, i'll show you the seven-day forecast because it's looking more like august towards the end of the week. >> whoo-hoo! >> thursday 90. that's annie choo cheering for 90-degree weather and 95 percent humidity and all that good stuff, too. get up closer to 90. we have to put them back into the seven-day forecast. i didn't want to because i know how nice everybody is when it's only in the middle 80's in august so there you go. >> well, i should be sad to see those 90's because my

county, places like that. so, i think that's done for now and everything is pushing to the south of us. little ground clutter around the radar site. so, yeah, we do have a few clouds coming on across but still they're letting sunshine through. it's kind of filtered. high to mid level cloudiness. we'll have that around from time to time today. a little bit thicker this morning but as we progress into the afternoon, i think some of this will move through and get pushed a little bit farther to the south and again, the lower humidities, the drier dewpoints up to the north and the west, they will be kind of filtering through during the afternoon hours so late this afternoon and into this evening it will be very, very nice. again noticeably less humid as we progress through the day and into the evening. all right, this tropical depression number eight. fairly large storm but it does not look like it's going to be able to impact the east coast other than maybe some increased wave heights along the shore. a little bit of beach erosion po

african baptist zion church the governor said to be there likely to ease some fears and concerns and tensions after last night's developments. now, take a look over my right shoulder. this is the aftermath here at emancipation park. that is the confederate statue of robert e. lee that sparked all of this aftermath. you can see that there is garbage everywhere. there's a strong police presence in this area here in charlottesville. we are near the university of virginia campus. wha i can tell you right now is that the federal government investigation into all of- these circumstances. mainly surrounding the car crash that cost that 32-year-old woman her life and injured more than a dozen people. all of this unfolding during saturday night's unite the right rally here. now, the investigation that will be taking place that includes the feds also includes the fbi and also the u.s. attorney's office. here's what witnesses had to say as the chaos unfolded. >> there's a state of shock and panic

friends who have attended the university of virginia and just to kind of wrap up the sentiment that i'm hearing from them and also on social media, many people are concerned but the word that's being used is terrified and fear to walk around on the streets and walk around on campus and so the governor will likely address many of those concerns this morning. also, we're hearing that the local black lives matter chapter is scheduled to have a rally this afternoon at 3 o'clock. they're saying it's to mourn the lives of the two troopers who were killed in the helicopter crash and also the 32-year-old woman who lost her life in that car crash. tisha lewis, fox5 local news. >> tisha, thank you so much for that report. time now is 8:04. our other top story this morning is that wild weather we had last night. man, it made the rounds. severe thunderstorms rolled through the dmv. take a look at this. this is video from d.c. firefighters. they had to rescue two people after their cars got

trend through into the afternoon, the humidity levels will continue to come on down over the next six to seven hours, okay. 65 right now for gaithersburg, 66 in frederick, 70 for culpeper. that's up just a little bit. fredericksburg is up, too, at 69 degrees and baltimore is 69. over on the eastern shore, a few clouds over there but temperatures are in the lower 70's and again, the trend here is for these dewpoints to be progressively going down through the day today. so, we're in the mid 60's now. couple of lower 60's out there. again, the lower this number, the more comfortable it is so we're hoping to get these numbers in the 50's and the low 60's today and that will just be really, really nice even though temperatures are going to warm up. we're talking about lower to mid 80's for high temperatures today. the rain has moved on out of here off to the east. it's about to clear the shore, too, so trending better for the beaches if you're watching out there this morning. cold front, well, the cold front has moved through. it's slowly moving to the east but it's getting a pretty good push down to the south and the
concentrated around that front down through southern virginia and northern and eastern sections of north carolina. here's the forecast for the next couple of days. not so humid today. it will still be warm, 85. it will be warm again tomorrow. perhaps slightly cooler. a high of about 84 degrees. next time i'm with you, annie, we'll check on the seven-day forecast. it's looking more like august. >> can't wait. thanks gary. time now 8:07. an ms-13 gang member is now in custody after a four year manhunt. police arrested walter gomez in woodbridge, virginia on friday. now gomez is a suspect in the murder of julio matute. investigators say the victim was also a member of ms-13. police say gomez and another member of the violent gang killed matute because they suspected he was getting too close to a rival gang. and in the district a young man accused of shooting a teenaged girl in northeast made his first court appearance yesterday. philip

lot of mid to low 60's out to the north and to the west. frontal system has pushed through, okay, so that's allowing -- see these lines coming in? this represents the wind so the wind is coming out of the northwest here and it's pushing all that heat andad we're still going to be warm today but with the lack of humidity -- or the lower humidities it's going feel a lot more comfortable. cincinnati is still at 60 degrees. this air mass goes all the way up to the north and west. we have a big area of high pressure right here. the center of which is sitting basically right on top of michigan this morning. it's still hot and muggy down to the deep south but luckily this air mass has come on down and brought us some relief. certainly from the humidity. it will be a little warm today. keep that in mind. i think we're headed towards middle 80's which yesterday we were middle 80's but it felt like the upper 80's with all the humidity. just some ground clutter now& around the radar z site. we were watching showers down through southern maryland earlier. i think there may be a couple sprinkles left over there, that's about it. the clouds are

two church services this morning to ease concerns and fears of an incident that can only be described as horrifying. tisha lewis, fox5 local news. >> tisha, thank you for that report. and we're wondering do we know anything about the other victims at this time? have they released any information about them? i believe dozens were also injured in addition to the one person who was killed and of course those two officers? >> reporter: correct, on today, at least 20 people are injured and all we know so far is that they were taken to nearby hospitals, said to be treated and recovering from their injuries. we don't know the extender of the injuries but we can only go by the pictures that we've seen posted on social media that are filled with bruises and blood and just really saddening images, not what w want to be a reflection of the commonwealth or the university of virginia or our country. >> thank you tisha. really horrifying scene, those social media clips touched all of us yesterday.
attorney general jeff sessions also condemned the violence in charlottesville in a statement he said, "we will continue to support our state and local officers on the ground in any way possible. we stand united behind the president in condemning the violence in charlottesville and any message of hate and intolerance. this kind of violence is totally contrary to american values and can never be tolerated ." joining us to talk about president trump and his administration's response to the protest and violence jason russell with the washington examiner. jason thank you for being with us. >> thank you. >> let's start with what everyone is talking about the decision for the president -- the decision that the president made not to explicitly name and articulate white supremacists in his statement. why do you think he made that decision? it was clearly deliberate? >> yeah, before we get into the politics, you know, you always want to in these tragedies just pour your thoughts and your prayers out to the victims, those who died in helicopter and the crash and their families and friends. those are the people who are
hurting most d today and the charlottesville community as a whole. for that decision for president trump to not condemn this specifically the white supremacists i think in his mind the thinking goes that he's trying to keep the country from being divided further but i think most of the country is united in condemning white supremacists. >> let's talk about that divide. i was really fascinated by the difference in response from governor mcauliffe and then the mayor of charlottesville. the mayor of charlottesville says he puts this on the doorstep of the white house, really blaming the white house and the president for the divide in this country. the president, however, very starking different response saying that he spoke to the president, we need to find unity. we need to come together in light of this. what's the right approach? >> yeah, i mean, i think i would lean towards the governor mcauliffe's approach. he's saying let's get together and the overcome the white supremacy together rather than putting blame on who is to say this is your fault
supremacy happened. it's been going on for decades. it's not just president trump's fault. he can go further and make sure that he knows that will white supremacists do not have his backing, do not have his endorsement. that's what republicans on the hill have been saying all day long yesterday and even this morning, saying that president trump needs to be stronger on this. it's not just democrats saying he needs to be stronger it's republicans too. >> you saw a response from some white supremacist leaders saying that they were irritated by the president's response, that, you know, he was too hard on them and then you have others majority of people saying he wasn't hard enough. why walk this fuzzy line and not take a stronger stance as the president of the united states? >> yeah, again, i think his thinking goes that, you know, we want to make sure we don't divide this further but again i think 99 percent of the country is okay with their president condemning white supremacists. >> right. >> i think this was an opportunity for him to knock it out park easily and get more backing from some of this dee contractors. he didn't do
>> one of the things that stood out to me in the president's remarks this idea he says we have to study it. study what caused this violence. it seemed slightly out of place for the timing of what his remarks were w intended to convey. what could he mean by that? why is this important? it certainly seems like an avenue that perhaps should be explored because many are surprised that there is such anger and racial divide in this country. >> yeah, exactly. we want to study this and figure it out. that's not what you want to hear from your president in this situation. you want to hear the typical our thoughts and prayers are with the families followed by and we condemn white supremacy is all its forms. >> the president -- is it that he can't win because when leaders come out and say thoughts and prayers and we pray for the victims, so many times they are -- they're not -- i wouldn't say mocked but really judged that we don't need prayers, we need action. maybe the study -- suggesting a study is the action that people are looking for. >> that might be it but again, it's a pretty weak stud deal. i think --
weak course of action. people want to hear him say this is wrong don't do this, i do not endorse this at all, stop thinking that you're doing this in my name. >> let's talk about that finally the idea that this is being looked at as a criminal homicide versus domestic terrorism. last lawmakers are saying this number one should be called domestic terrorism and number two we should expect the president to call it such. >> yeah, i mean, that might be the kind of thing that he wants to take a step back and study. off the top of your head not everyone knows the difference between a criminal homicide and domestic terrorism. clearly i think this was an example of a white supremacist trying to terrify counter protesters, at future white supremacist rallies they might be concerned that counter protesters might be concerned that someone else is going to do this. so, i think that was the goal was to terrify people here. >> it really did. those videos , the images are horrifying. jason russell with the examiner thanks for joining

missile china's president is speaking out. he spoke with president trump on the phone yesterday. the leader urged him to tone down the strong rhetoric before the situation gets worse. president trump agreed he wanted peace but repeated his comments that he'll meet north korea with fire and fury if it acts on recent threats. joining to us talk about north korea and where things stand is jenny town, she's the assistant director of the u.s. korea institute at johns hopkins school of advanced international studies. thanks for being with us today. one of the things i was reading in the notes that you were saying is this idea that we shouldn't draw red lines, that we're not willing to keep. we don't want to make these false promises if you will but how do we know that it is a false red line. >> this is part of the problem is that we don't and the threats that president trump has made have been fairly vague as well. association it makes a lot of room for interpretation and a lot of room for miscalculation. and part of the problem is, you know, we saw this in
north korea and he had said that he was sending the arm armada. when it turns out it wasn't even happening the north koreans called his bluff once and so the problem with these new threats is now that he's threatening to retaliate against more threats, not even actions, without even a definition of what he would consider a threat, makes it almost as if it's a dare as to let's see, you know -- will they call his bluff again and what will that look like. >> one of the points the administration regularly makes when they talk about any sort of foreign details they say we're going to keep the details close to the vest. you're criticizing them for not being specific. isn't a valid argument that if we're going to be specific you know what's coming. >> if you're drawing these red lines you should be specific and you should be specific in order to prevent miscalculation in the process. >> one of my take aways that i'm -- that many people feel and that i take from you as
this rhetoric and how much of a bad decision at least you're suggesting that it is. i want to go back to the 90's. a lot of people have done that this week talking about bill clinton, talking about the agreement that he made. one of the things that he said that if north korea developed nuclear weapons, that it would mean the end of their country as they know it. that's a quote from bill clinton so that's pretty extreme rhetoric so how does rhetoric saying the end of their country as they know it, how is that less or different from the president saying they'll be met with fire and fury. >> but i think that's part of the problem, too, is that these kinds of threats have been made and north korea has felt under threat from the united states for this time and nothing has happened. and so every time it makes these threats, it actually -- we lose credibility in that process. >> i know you can't bring us inside north korea but you are speaking to the idea of how they view us. paint a picture for us, if you can, about how the recent remarks change and escalate the views inside north korea of the uni
>> so, inside north korea, one of the things that they always talk about is how they've -- how they have perceived threat from the united states not necessarily always in words but in the actions that they've seen over the years as far back as the u.s. threatening to drop an atomic bomb on north korea, you know, during the korean war, to the introduction of nuclear weapons into south korea even though they did withdraw them later and then adding these military drills to the joint military exercises that included strategic assets and bringing strategic assets into the region. so when you have presidents like when president bush for instance called it access of evil tied it into say iraq and then went into iraq and, you know, deposed sadaam hussain and engineered regime change and then this happening again in libya, you know, north korea is looking at all of these signs and so even if the president doesn't directly threaten them with something specific, they already feel that threat and so using this langua
language what it does though is that their style of negotiation is sort of this verbal one ups manship but every time they do this it really increases the risk for potentil conflict. >> quickly you just mentioned negotiation in your take 30 seconds, is negotiation possible at any time in light of the recent series of events we've seen. >> i think it's possible but the window is really closing and again, without clearer messaging, it's going to be very difficult to have any sort of confidence on either side of the opponent.ponent. i appreciate your inciting we'll continue the conversation on north korea. we're going to bring in a military analyst mike lyons to help us break down the military options. mike thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having mel. >> tell us what our options are at this stage of the game. the administration very close to the vest not giving us any details.details. >> let's make a couple of assumptions here
not going to pre-emptively strike into north korea. i think that result would be disastrous potentially millions of people could be killed during a retaliation so from that assumption that military option is off the table so let's look at defensive purposes. we've got sadd missile systems and other air defense systems out there that are protecting south korea, frequenting gaum japan other allies in the region. i think we have to take a defensive posture. the last few days have allowed both sides to go back to their respective corners so to speak and rethink this. it will be important from that a military perspective that we still show should north korea decide to make any kind of an attack we're going have to unfortunately start a very large scale conventional. >> mike i would argue that many people are surprised we're at this point of conversation simply because so many underestimated north korea's capability, that gradually escalated to get us to this point. is north korea capable of hitting gaum. >>
they'd have to have a lot of things go right in order for them to hit a military target on that island. with missile systems that really haven't shown that they can have that level of accuracy. they could come close. we'd have to think though that if they fired them towards gaum that could be this act of war that could trigger this conventional type operation. i don't think -- we need to adopt a first strike no nuke policy. we don't want to necessarily escalate this right away even though they have these nuclear capabilities because, again, they're still unsure of whether they can actually deliver it. they might be able to push it close, they might be able to get to it a spot but the bottom line is their capability of deliver that nuclear weapon is unsure. from a moral perspective evacuating people from south korea, there's so many things that have to happen in order for us before we start any kind of conventional land warfare on the peninsula. >> mike, you mentioned uncertainty. there is a tremendous amount of fear i would argue right now in this country, people feel so afraid
uncertainty that exists. i know you mentioned sadd as well. can you tell us more about our missile defense system. can you put any comfort in the minds of our viewers who have a genuine fear right now of a potential nuclear escalation. >> yeah, the missile system it's a high altitude system, it's well forward. you could argue it's destabilize on some level. they could try to overwell it. we would have it tied into naval assets but we'd have a a lot of wor warning if they launched something to that country. we would absolutely go after them decapitation strategy we would overwell their capitol, their military systems with cyber, with conventional forces so again i think we could rest easy here in the u.s. they do not threaten us. we do not have an existential threat from them. we need to
this strategic deterrence to figure out how they stop talking and narrow and kind of ratchet down all the rhetoric which has not been positive towards making a peaceful solution which is what we all want. >> mike, can you quickly weigh in on the recent comments and statement by china to say if we strike first they're taking the side of north korea if not if it's north korea first they'll stay neutral. how does the united states interpret that statement? >> yeah, that's to be expected. i would not -- wouldn't expect it any other way. the chinese have a defensive agreement with the north koreans so they want to make sure that we don't necessarily do something from a hair trigger perspective so i think that makes sense. we should use that now to our strength. work with china, work with korea, make the assumption that the north koreans are going to have these nuclear capabilities. i think the red line -- you were talking before about red lines. the red lines has got to be not exporting that technology or missile technology, that would cause us to possibly pre-emptively strike inside of north korea.

jersey. it's a construction zone at the white house. the mansion needs major work. the oval office and other working areas of the west wing have been cleared out. upgrades include the heating and air conditioning systems, fixing leaks, repairing steps and updating the kitchen. white house isn't the only thing that needs upgrades. the country's infrastructure is also in need of improvements. rebuild u.s.a.'s craig veroga is with us. from roads and bridges to drinking water. thanks for being with us. >> good morning. it's an important issue. >> it is important and you were saying we were speaking speakingin the green room this organization is nonpartisan. >> totally nonpartisan. we seek to work with republicans and democrats and the other thing is this is a major crisis where people's lives are at stake, people's jobs are at stake but last year in the presidential race, 70 percent of americans want something to be done. so, this is something on which people should be able to unite and work together. >> you say 70 percent of americans want
but it just doesn't seem to garner the attention that you think it would. it doesn't seem to get the enthusiasm that it should based on some of the statistics that i was reading on your web site. maybe we can pull some of them up from the organization. americans make 188 million trips over 56,000 bridges that are structurally deficient. crumbling roads contribute to traffic delays costing $160 billion a year. 200,000 water breaks waste water. why don't people hear that and go crazy to get in line to help your organization. >> that's why we're running the organization and the campaign that we are because whether it's the roads and bridges you drive on, you're in danger in many cases when you cross a bridge. kids are in schools that are outdated. water systems, we saw in flint, michigan people's lives are in danger and their health because we're not doing anything. >> i know you said. >> not doing enough. >> i know you said the organization is nonpartisan but how important is it for you
built very quickly. >> it's important that we have support from both democrats and republicans and that's why we're urging members of the public -- >> is it enough. >> no, it's not enough. even if the 1 trillion-dollar package goes through, that would address maybe only one third of the problem. governors, mayors need to work on this as well and mayor bowser for instance is working on it, announced some projects recently but mayors all across the country are also working on this and we're working with them. >> it seems like an issue that mayors, governors, leaders on both sides of the aisle should get behind. what's the time line for the need for the changes that you talk about? we got a d plus from civil engineers. >> we got at d plus and what that means is that those roads and bridges are the not only dangerous it means if we don't fix this we'll lose over two and a half million jobs. if people want more information they should go to rebuild u.s.a..org. they can see some of the ads we do but also more of the statistics that you put up on your
