patron. ben tracy is in china where the country has a lot at stake. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we actually received this response from the chinese government. they say the information on the korean peninsula is highly sensitive, we hope the countries will be cautious with words and behavior and stop provoking each other. they're worried this could lead to a regional arms race and that appears to already be happening. president moon jae-in is calling for a complete military overhaul. in japan some lawmakers are pushing for new weapons that could launch a preemptive strike. keep in mind china agreed to go along with sanctions on kim jong-un's regime which will be up to china to enforcele. having the united states throw more fuel on this fire may make

7:12 am
allow north korea to develop an icbm weapon. he's not going let it happen. he's going to contain the threat. >> you say when president trump says that there is an issue of how many people might die from a retaliation on south korea. >> yeah. general mattis described it. it would be a horrific war unfortunately. we're headed that way unless north korea stops. put yourself the president trump's shoes. isn't your primary purpose as president of the united states to protect the american homeland from a nuclear weapon attack from a fie lime kguy like kim j? he's going to pick homeland defense over regional stability and he has to. for 30 year this has failed. this not a language problem. this is a north korean regime trying to get the capability to thrike america.
7:13 am
and no president should allow this to happen. we failed for 30 years. it's time to start something new. >> senator, secretary rex tillerson just arrived in guam. he said our telephone lines are open. he said president trump was trying to speak in language that kim jong-un would understand in terms of that rhetoric. does it seem to you like there's diplomatic pros? >> well, we e had sanctions passed by the u.n. that were very tough. nikki haley did a great job. secretary tillerson said there will not be a war to change the regime or -- >> something that contradicts what mike pompeo said, that that is u.s.'s plan, to change the regime. >>
7:14 am
that. that's where war would be likely to occur if they continue to threaten the homeland. i hope diplomacy will work. sanctions haven't worked before. maybe they'll work now. but china should have more than -- we've got two bad options. that is, to let them get a missile to hurt america or go to war to stop them. china has two options. dial with a nut job in your backyard or you're going to have a war in your backyard. and the time for talking is running out. i want to know what south korea and japan think of the miniaturizing of the weapon. i learned from iraq you do another to be cautious. but i do believe president trump will not allow kim jong-un get a missile to hit america and it's a matter of time before that capability exists. i hope we can do it with diplomacy and

was a war, it would be in the region, not in america?the issu barrier. >> i don't know the exact nature of the missile program and i don't think we have eyes and ears on how far they're going. i know they're trying. i would like to hear from south korea and japan, their intel services, but it's just a matter o time when they get this capability. when putin says, you know, he didn't interfere in the election, he was lying. when the ayatollah said he wasn't trying to build a weapon, he's liared. this man not lying. he's saying he's going to build an icbm with a nuclear bomb on top. i don't want to live under that threat for the next 50 years a

still confusion over the treatment and its cost. anna, good morning. >> good morning. this device, the auvi-q might be why the confusing prices. some prefer the epipen because of its small size. the listed price for a two-pack, over $200. most aren't paying for that leading to the question, who is. authentics ha s havs have change first visited this family. two of the sick have severe allergies and lat last year at this time, justin and lex lexi henegar were not happy with the price of epipens. last

questioned about the price. >> sir, we believe it was a fair price and now lowered the price by half. >> reporter: cvs pharmacy offered a different generic injector for $109. then the past june the henegars got a letter from their insurer. >> they no longer cover the epipen, only the jen etdic pen. >> reporter: but they were out of stock and that's when they looked at the auvi. q. evan and eric edwards invented the auvi-q after growing up with allergies. it's smaller and comes with its own voice instructions. >> basically anybody who picks up the

7:46 am
henegars say they'll take any help they can. >> i hope it will even the player field and bring down prices. >> so how will it affect prices? analysts say in this business competition can sometimes drive prices higher as drug companies have to get into this market with pharmacy benefit managers and insurers. those prices can actually go up where you think they might go down because of the complicated nature of this. the auvi-q returned in february after a voluntary recall that was under a different manufacturer and another epipen competitor set to hit the market later this year. so this market at least keeps changing. we'll see what happens next. >> what's interesting is people don't realize the epipen skiers. you have to keep rebuying it. you don't always use it because it's meant for a serious condition. you have to keep buying it and when

8:06 am
it's gone on for quite some time. i'm encouraged he's calmly tweeting out morning he's committed to that. >> secretary tillerson seems to be taking a step back emphasizing again there's a diplomatic way out from this. to you believe the president is directing his statement at china or pyongyang right now? where's the pressure point? >> it's a little hard to tell. i think it's outbursts of sorts. i would counsel being circum sent because after all we're the great power here, not north korea. it doesn't do any good to descend into angry playground rhetoric. i think it's important that we have folks like tillerson and dumford who are staying very calm here and i think tillerson is actively considering a solution to the problem.

8:36 am
what happens if he says iran's not abiding by the agreement? >> there's a problem. they could continue to wave sanctions and stay in the deal if they want to, but the whole point of decertifying, it seems, is donald trump wants to get out of this deal. i think that's a terrible mistake. if you look at what we're dealing with with north korea, we're running up against the possible to having to use military force to stop north koreans from putting a bomb on top of a missile. iran's nuclear program is in a box. blowing up the nuclear deal at a moment when we're dealing with north korea seems like it is creating a problem that doesn't currently exist. >> and general may it is has said he supposed it even though he finds flaws in it. >> right. >> and even president obama. >> this is the thing about any diploma

anything you want. there's also imperfections, but it is a heck of a lot better situation when we're dealing with iran right now than what is happening in north korea and the last thing we want to do is put iran on a packet where they represent the same kind of threat as north korea does. >> you and i both know people in that administration who would admit bravesly now they missed opportunities with north korea and they allows things to escalate? what's different now? >> you know, it's interesting. many have to approach it with humidity. that's been true going back for 20 years. so i'm sympathetic to the current administration. i think what's different today is that trump has the possibility of getting china's attention in a way that is more direct and decisive than
