extending his unusual invitation with a tweet, president trump took the final steps north toward the line separating north and south korea. >> stay low. stay low. >> reporter: walking briskly to meet him, a smiling kim jong-un. >> my friend. >> reporter: the north korean leader, one of the world's most brutal dictators, greeted the president like an old friend. "good to see you again," he said. "i never expected to meet you at this place." >> it's my honor. would you like me to step across? >> reporter: then, with a step, the president walked onto north korean territory. >> i'd be very proud to do that. okay. let's do it. come on. >> reporter: clearly relishing the moment, another handshake before the cameras. the hastily arranged meeting became chaotic as the two men walked back to the south korean side of the border and photographers scrambled to capture the moment. >> how do you feel? >> feel great. it's a great honor to be here.
>> chairman kim, how do you feel? >> reporter: in a rare move, the reclusive north korean leader spoke directly to american reporters. "i believe," kim said of trump, "this is an expression of his willingness to eliminate all of the unfortunate past and open a new future." as they stood together before the cameras, president trump offered up another invitation. >> would you invite him to visit the u.s anytime soon? >> i would invite him right now. to the white house. absolutely. >> reporter: as they walked toward the so-called house of freedom, chaos. security guards blocking the u.s. press. and then -- >> u.s. pool! >> reporter: a rush to get the american media inside. north korean security guards attempting to block the way. that's the new white house press secretary stephanie grisham, elbowing and shoving aside a north korean security guard. kim and trump met for nearly an hour behind closed doors. the symbolism of the day was
powerful, but after this and the two summit meetings, north korea's nuclear program is still fully in place. in fact, u.s. intelligence believes kim's nuclear stockpiles have increased since the talks began. >> speed is not the object. we want to see if we can do a really comprehensive good deal. nobody knows how things turn out. but certainly this was a great day, this was a very legendary, very historic day. >> and that future is now the focus. jon, this was history today. that big gamble paying off. but as we heard from the president in your report, nobody knows how any deal with north korea will turn out. so what's next? >> reporter: the president announced there will be a resumption of lower level talks with more detail to try to get at the elusive nuclear deal. the bottom line is, despite all of the incredible symbolism, there has been no progress towards a nuclear deal.
>> jon, thank you very much. next tonight, the urgent manhunt for a convicted killer on the loose in dallas. authorities say he escaped on the last day of his murder trial. cutting his ankle monitor. jurors deliberating 15 minutes before finding him guilty, as police try to track him down. here's stephanie ramos. >> reporter: tonight, u.s. marshals are intensifying their search for a convicted murderer. rene carrillo appeared at his texas murder trial all week. authorities say he skipped court thursday as a verdict neared. the accused killer out on bond. police say he ditched his ankle monitor. >> his ankle monitor had been cut off and destroyed on the side of the road in terrell, texas. >> reporter: police releasing this surveillance video from october, 2017, where they say carrillo walks up to that mercedes car, shoots and kills jean carlo casiano-torres in the passenger seat, and wounds a woman with him. all of this stemming from an argument inside a nearby strip club.
according to dallas county court records, carrillo was released on a $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 re-interviewing carrillo's family and friends, anyone that knows him, so that they can convince carrillo to turn himself in. whit? >> stephanie, thank you. now to dangerous storms and blistering heat heading into the fourth of july. a tornado spotted in south dakota. several people injured by high winds in pennsylvania. and a new heat wave brewing for the holiday week in the east. let's get right to jeff smith. walk us through what is ahead. >> tonight, we have to deal with some severe weather.

>> 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 junior 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 deleted it like a coward, so he could 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. >> rachel joins us now from washington. in that show of unity there, almost immediately, we saw so many of senator harris' campaign rivals come to her defense. >> reporter: whit, so many of the democratic candidates came
forward and said they felt like it was their obligation to say something. and senator harris identifies as a black american, graduated from a historically black university. and she is a member of the first black sorority. >> rachel, thank you. next tonight, frightening moments for a sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop in florida. the vehicle taking off, dragging the deputy not once but twice. the deputy with his gun drawn. here's marcus moore. >> reporter: tonight, a driver is facing an attempted murder charge after this routine traffic stop turns into an officer's terrifying ride from the side of an suv. >> i'm telling you right now. stop! stop! >> reporter: watch as seminole county deputy aaron blais is dragged twice, clutching onto the side of the car as it speeds away. hanging on for dear life. it started with that traffic stop for an alleged window tinting violation. police body and dash cameras

one participant tells our streaming channel this moment is about freedom. >> if i wanted to if i want to wear a dress, that is freedom. that's what we are fighting for. >> reporter: polling shows support for same-sex marriage, a hard-fought civil right attained just four years ago, has continued to rise. with 61% of americans now saying they support it. but in recent years, hate crimes targeting the lgbtq community have also risen. today many tell us the struggle continues. >> it's come a long way. we have a long way to go. but i'm so happy and proud to be here. >> reporter: while everyone we spoke to agrees there's more work to be done, tonight they are all beaming with pride. whit? >> diane, thank you. still ahead on "world news tonight," disaster on the dock. dozens of people enjoying a restaurant meal with a view suddenly crashing into the water. plus, the scare at the county fair after a toddler dies of e. coli. authorities suspect a popular
