7:02 am
the president's chief of staff reince priebus resigns and is replaced by homeland security secretary john kelly, a four-star general. >> it's been six months of chaos in the west wing. not just priebus. before that, sean spicer gone. the communications director gone, the deputy chief of staff, gone. the national security adviser gone. >> we're not done yet. the fbi director also gone. all of this happened in just six months. >> and now the president is turning to a trusted former general to impose order in the white house. >> the big question, can the change effectively reset the administration and what is reince priebus saying about this? abc's wright begins our coverage for us at the white house this morning. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula and jon. the president is clearly hoping the shake-up will bring some order and discipline to a white house that has been ridden by division and back biting chaos that comes at a cost to the president's agenda.
7:03 am
the scapegoat this week, reince priebus who left the white house last night. he told fox news he wouldn't comment on the attacks by communications director anthony scaramucci. >> i'm not going to get into that subject. it's getting in the mud and i think the palace intrigue stuff is annoying and i think it's a distraction. it takes away from the president's agenda. i think everyone needs to focus on the president and what he needs to get done for the american people. >> reporter: the announcement expeblgted all week came abruptly in a presidential tweet last friday. priebus said he resigned thursday. >> i think going in a different direction, hitting the reset button is a good thing and the president did that. so i think he's happy. i have to tell you, it's always a little mix when things like this happen. i generally feel good. >> reince priebus, a good man. >> reporter: his replacement starts monday.
7:04 am
a retired four-star general from the marine corps who in his current role as secretary of homeland security was a steadfast supporter of the president's plan to strengthen the borders. >> the president has executive orders to the homeland security mission. the orders will secure the borders and enhance the enforcement of the immigration laws and keep our citizens safe. >> general kelly has been a star. he's done an incredible job thus far. he is respected by everybody. >> reporter: general john kelly is well liked in the west wing. with a proven record at command. his new unit badly in need of some discipline. but kelly has no prior political experience which could make it tough when it comes to issues like health care. the white house is still reeling over the senate's failure to pass an obamacare repeal. a signature campaign promise
7:05 am
defeated with a thumbs down by senator john mccain. a crushing blow to the gop leadership. the new chief of staff starts monday. in the meantime, the number two in homeland security, elaine duke, she will take over as acting secretary. but there is some talk of possibility of attorney general jeff sessions eventually heading over to homeland security. that would be news to the department of justice and it would certainly raise some eye brows here in washington. paula? >> that would be intriguing. david, before i let you go. i have to ask you about the president. he raised eye brows with this comment during a speech yesterday in law enforcement. referencing cracking down on suspected gang members. take a listen. >> like when you put guys in a car and you are protecting their head. you know,the way you put your hand over -- don't hit their head and they just killed somebody. don't hit their head? i said, you can take the hand away, okay? >> the president is taking a lot of heat for that comment. you can give us a little context? >> reporter: well, he was
7:06 am
speaking to local law enforcement officers and he seemed to suggest that a little police brutality is not a bad thing. joking at least. and there was a little put back from the suffolk police department. for one, they were among the groups he was addressing and they tweeted out immediately, as a department, we do not tolerate the roughing up of prisoners. >> thank you. and speaking of white house, jon, we are usually talking to you via satellite in d.c. i want to pick your brain. reince was never really a good fit for the administration. but over night, taking the high road. saying this is a much needed reset for the administration. do you think a four-star general will get the administration back on path? >> look, the problem is the white house is the chief of staff is donald trump. he acts as his own chief of staff. he acts as his own
7:07 am
communications director. nobody really reported to reince priebus. the senior staff had direct line to the president. that's the way he liked it. my question what kind of authority is general kelly going to have? >> he has the respect of the president. maybe that is step one. all right. thanks for your analysis. >> i will stick around a while. >> we want to bring in abc news political analyst cokie roberts from the nation's capital. good morning to you. >> good morning, and jon, we are missing you here. >> don't go back any time soon. >> i wanted to be away from the chaos so i game to weekend gma. >> we said if you can handle six months of chaos in washington, he can handle weekend gma. so, cokie, i just asked jon about this. i want to get your take on this. with priebus replaced by kelly, do you anticipate there will be less chaos in the administration? >> no, i agree completely with jon. no, the problem is not the chief of staff. the problem is the president.
7:08 am
and nobody can stop him from tweeting whatever he wants to tweet at all hours of the day and night. and whether that contradicts some policy the white house is trying to put out, the president doesn't seem to care about. but in addition to that, we have not had good experiences with generals as chiefs of staff. the last one was general alexander hague and that was pretty chaotic. and by the time that gerald ford became president and inherited him as chief of staff, it didn't work at all. he did not want that chaos in the white house and it lasted a month. >> but cokie, republican leaders practically begged the president to name priebus in the administration. saying he needed a washington hand. somebody with contacts in congress. >> someone who is a republican. >> now a general -- >> they are no republicans in the white house. maybe don mccann the lawyer. but there really aren't. last year at this time, at the republican convention, we were
7:09 am
saying this is not a republican convention. this is a trump convention. now we have a trump white house. it's going to be heavily new york, heavily his administration. he loves what he calls my generals but these are not republicans. these are not people who have been in the party who have been working in the vineyards for years, who helped elect the people in congress. all of these things. so does that make the relationships with congress any better? i don't think so. >> speaking of the relationships, we talked about this earlier off camera. the democrats, the republicans and then you've got the trump administration. do you anticipate that making the president's agenda tough to actually go forward? >> it's already tough. the health care is the most obvious of the agenda items. general kelly has been very supportive of the wall, which is
7:10 am
something president trump really got out there and ran on last year. but the people in the house are ready to put in a little money to build a wall. that's going to run up against a wall, so to speak, in the senate. and that's going to keep happening. the senate is very evenly divided and they -- members of the senate did not run on the same issues that the president ran on. >> all right, cokie, always great to have you on a saturday or sunday morning. we'll take you whenever we can get you. >> always nice to be here. >> thanks. we want to move now to the other big story this morning. the latest move by north korea involving another intercontinental ballistic missile. >> kim jong un claims they are able to hit the united states at any time. gloria riviera is here with more on the launch and how the united states is responding. good morning, gloria. >> good morning. north korea delivering on its promise ignoring warnings from the u.s. and going ahead with
7:11 am
his 11th missile test this year alone. we are learning more about the launch site which came as somewhat of a surprise. it's a mountainous region near china where the regime is believed to hide numerous missiles in underground tunnels. blasting off a launch pad near the chinese border, this launch pad for the first time being capable of reaching across the u.s. north korea later releasing photos with kim jong un posing next to a missile. >> they have a missile that can hit the lower 48. but now we're talking seattle, denver, chicago, maybe even as far as new york and washington, d.c. >> reporter: moments after learning after this alarming development, the president on a conference call with his national security team. he called it reckless and dangerous saying the united states will take all necessary steps to make sure of the security of the homeland. and protect our allies in the region.
7:12 am
# >> the united states is also advancing its capabilities to what is called ground interceptors. to intercept the missiles before they reach land. >> reporter: the missile went higher on this july 4th test. it was airborne for 45 minutes shooting approximately 2300 miles into space before coming down in the sea of japan, 620 miles from its launch site. but the north koreans can lower the angle to vastly extend the range, potentially all the way to the east coast of the u.s. this latest test did not test whether north korea can arm the missile with a nuclear war head. but just this week, they said it could happen within the year. in a response, the united states had a joint military exercise with south korea. but some experts say only getting back to the negotiation table will help. >> military threats won't stop them. it's time for the president of the united states, the great dealmaker, to see if he can make a deal. >> reporter: the north korea media is reporting the leader
7:13 am
vows he will continue these tests targeting the u.s. the president of the united states' closest ally in the region wants to talk to the united states about deploying more anti-missile defense units in the region and tougher sanctions from the u.n. jon, paula. >> thank you. now a power outage is messing up vacation plans in the outer banks. >> vacationers are ordered to get out or face legal action. and abc's erielle reshef has the story. good morning to you. this is ruining a lot of vacations. >> reporter: it is. the outage prompting the governor of north carolina to declare a state of emergency. visitors will be breaking the law if they don't evacuate. this summer a summer vacation nightmare. >> we had another day left. we wanted to be on the beach fishing. >> reporter: a power outage forcing at least 10,000 tourists off the outer banks. >> hoping the power will come back on. >> reporter: the outage
7:14 am
prompting an evacuation order on the north carolina islands of hatteras and ocracoke with no word on when power will be restored. officials ple sideing over popular tourist island ocracoke island, misdemeanor warnings for visitors who will not leave. >> seems they are trying to get out as we request it. >> reporter: the black out began thursday after a construction company on this new bridge drove a steel casing into an electric transmission cable. >> it's kind of a damper on the fun to cut short the family vacation. >> reporter: despite bringing in backup generators to power communities, they are asking people as they prepare to leave to turn off their ac and conserve electricity. the generators are providing power to ems and fire. crews are now around the clock to get the power back up and running. it could be days or weeks before the power is restored in the area. >> that is a tough pill to swallow if you plan to vacation in the outer banks. which so many are doing right now. >> and bad for business.
7:15 am
>> great to have you. >> good to be here. we want to move to parts of country that are facing dangerous weather from alabama to new jersey. >> major downpours with flash flooding. rob is here with the latest. >> jon, you got out of d.c. in time. they got hammered yesterday with heavy rain. this is an unusual storm for late july. this comma shape. something we will see in september or october. and heavy rain has come along with this. and multiple reports of four and five inches of rainfall. a flash flood warning in washington county, pennsylvania, south of pittsburgh. you see this area back building. this is going to be trouble for parts of west virginia as well. the flash flood watch midday. for more on the storm, let's get to eva pilgrim in rehoboth beach, delaware. good morning, eva. >> reporter: it's a nonstop here in delaware. we're in a little bit of a lull right now but you can see the wind has a good push to it. the area can't seem to catch a break this week, and now flood

afi sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical
