7:04 am
any of their differences. the u.s. and russia still divided. this morning, president biden touching down back in washington after his whirlwind first foreign trip and that historic summit with the russian president. >> i did what i came to do. >> reporter: the two leaders shaking hands and smiling for the world to see. cameras brought in for a chaotic photo-op. putin slouching. biden appearing relaxed. after more than 2 1/2 hours, both sides giving their talks a positive review. biden even gifting putin a pair of his signature ave yay tors. >> translator: i think there was no hostility. the talks were quite constructive. >> reporter: putin still defiant. denying all responsibility for cyberattacks in the u.s. when pushed by rachel scott on his crackdown on political opponents putin deflecting, pointing to the black lives matter in the u.s. and the january 6th attack on the
7:05 am
capitol. >> what are you afraid of? >> translator: an entire movement developed called black lives matter. what we saw is disorder, destruction, violations of the law. we don't want that to happen on our territory. >> you didn't answer my question, sir. if all of your political opponents are dead, in prison, poisoned, doesn't that send a message that you don't want a fair political fight? >> translator: people came to the u.s. congress with political demands, 400 people had criminal charges placed on them. >> reporter: biden said he didn't issue threats, but says he made clear there would be consequences if he doesn't change his ways. >> bottom line, i told president putin we need to have basic rules of the road that we all abide by. >> reporter: on cybersecurity after those attacks that crippled a u.s. gas pipeline and targeted the meat industry,

7:07 am
there's a value to putting on an optimistic face. the president is taking a wait and see approach saying it could take six months to a year to see whether this dialogue had any real impact. robin? >> mary, thank you. we'll bring in rachel scott. with her exchange with vladimir putin. she joins us live from geneva. rachel, you were one of the few american journalists credentialed to ask putin a question. we heard you pressing him on the crack down of his political opponents. president biden responded to those comments, rachel? >> reporter: yeah, robin. you heard president putin there really trying to turn the tables pointing out incidents of violent in the united states. he called out the black lives matter movement. he called out the january 6th insurrection at the capitol. president biden calling it a ridiculous comparison. he said you can't equate those who are being prosecuted for breaking and entering the capitol to those being punished because they're critics of russian president putin. >> rachel, any response from the kremlin this morning?
7:08 am
>> reporter: no response from the kremlin this morning. they're allowing putin's words to speak for themselves. but i can tell you, after leaving that press conference, robin, i was swarmed by a few russian reporters. they wanted to know if i was satisfied by his answer. clearly there was a lot of iterest and a lot of intrigue about the american presence in the room. >> let people know what your response was to those people, the press. >> reporter: my response is no comment. look, this is our job. our job is to ask tough questions. we have a responsibility as journalists regardless of who the leader is or what country we're in, and so no comment. that's what we'll continue to do, robin. >> that's right. we appreciate it how you told them no comment. thank you for being there again this morning for us in geneva and safe travels back home. excellent work, rachel. thank you. now.
7:09 am
. >> announcer: this is an abc news special report. we're coming on /* we're coh breaking news. the supreme court has rejected a challenge to the affordable care act. the court was asked if mandate was unconstitutional. the justices decided the plaintiffs had no standing to bring the case. the provision maintains insurance for millions of americans. kate shaw is here with more on this now. how did the court come to this decision? >> this idea of standing is hugely important in general and in this case. the idea is just because you disagree with the law or you don't like a law you can't go to court and bring a challenge to the court and have them resolve it. every challenge to a law has to be brought by a party with a
7:10 am
concrete stake who is injured by a law. these individuals plaintiffs who complained about this mandate which no longer has a penalty just don't have that kind of standing that permits a court to decide the merits of their case at all. that's the heart of this rules. in a 7-2 opinion the supreme court said the individuals who have come to us lack the constitutional required standing and we can't decide the case at all. when you dismiss a case on standing, you leave the law in fact. obamacare lives to fight another day on the basis that the plaintiffs lack standing. >> let's bring in devin dwyer with more on that. devin, what does it mean for health care in this country? >> reporter: it means the status quo is in place. 30 million americans have
7:11 am
coverage connected to obamacare. 54 americans with pre-existing conditions and receiving protections under obamacare, a huge concern. all of that is still in place. there are still challenges to the health care law in the pipeline right now. so we will keep a close eye on those. as kate shaw just said, the third challenge to the law has fallen in large part thanks to chief justice john roberts and three conservatives joining with the liberals today, diane. >> senior national correspondent terry moran, what's the political impact of this decision? >> reporter: it's a defeat for republicans and conservatives. they want the issue alive, that somehow obamacare was a tyranical act. in this country you can't bring
7:12 am
a case because you don't like a law. the law has to injury you. if there's no way for the government to enforce the mandate you must buy health insurance, there's no case here. the supreme court dodging this case. it also awards a victory to those who have insurance through the affordable care act. it really puts the nail in the coffin for the republicans wanting to overturn the affordable care act. there's no penalty anymore for not buying health insurance. >> kate shaw, could this pave the way for future cheallenges? >> there may be challenges to aspects of the law, in particular the contraception mandate. it's possible there may be more. i think terry is right, the
7:13 am
legislature is where future battles are likely to play out rather than the courts and the supreme court. >> devin, how do you see those playing out? >> reporter: some federal cases are under way, the most prominent dealing with the popular provisions, guaranteed provisions, no-cost care for contraception and the like. those will continue to play out. they're a big of a long shot. a huge win today for obamacare and certainly the white house is breathing a sigh of relief. >> kate, devin, terry, thank you again. the supreme court just rejected the latest challenge to the affordable care act leaving in place health care for millions of americans. we'll have additional updates on abc news live. we'll return to your regular program. >> regular program. >> ann we appreciate you having you as always. thanks so much.
7:14 am
now to that new development on the high seas. a cruise ready to set sail with new covid protocols delayed after crew members tested positive. transportation correspondent gio benitez with those details. good morning, gio. >> reporter: robin, good morning. we're talking about a royal caribbean ship that was supposed to sail on july 3rd, it's now been pushed to july 31st. here's why. eight crew members tested positive on the ship. all of them were vaccinated. this is important. they tested positive before those vaccines were fully effective. this was supposed to be that ship's inaugural sailing. the cruise line also now saying it will require vaccines for all passengers boarding in the u.s. excpt from florida ports. royal caribbean saying that vaccines are strongly recommended from florida. governor ron desantis and the cdc still arguing over that. >> there's also news about
7:15 am
opening up europe to americans this summer. what more can you tell us about that? >> reporter: tomorrow, the eu is expected to start formally making recommendations on easing travel. each country has to agree. some countries though in europe are already open to americans. portugal, france, spain and italy. you see some more there on your screen. each one has different rules. some require vaccines, some don't. you have to do your homework before planning that trip, robin. >> do your homework. you always do. thank you gio. amy? now to the historic heat wave in the west. forcing evacuations in some areas. ginger tracking all of that for us. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. i can tell you i'm applying lip balm every how. it's the prolonged heat that's drying things out. las vegas was one degree short of their all-time record high.
7:16 am
you can see the video of reno, nevada. they did have evacuations. they lifted them. then we go to montana, the robertson draw fire, that blew up 20,000 acres in just 24 hours. it's all because of this heat dome. it's a high pressure system keeping the heat. it sinks and sits there. it's from the midwest, des moines, kansas city could break a record, back to sacramento, where they could be up at 110. this is a widespread long duration heat wave for a lot of folks. we'll watch this and check on the tropics. we want to turn now to two words nobody wants to hear, murder hornet. a murder hornet discovered in washington state. the first confirmed report of the deadly insect in the u.s. this year. kaylee hartung has the details for us. good morning to you, kaylee. >> reporter: t.j. just as we

8:41 am
character. i tried to play him very sly, very calm and just go step by step. almost i just tried to imitate -- i want you to understand this correctly. some politicians, they are very well mannered and suddenly they can be very damaging too. i'm not referring to anybody in particular. there are people in the world that are threatening in our day. i tried to play as a politician, very sly, very cool. >> it was and is something that everyone is going to want to watch. it's an amazing film. antonio banderas, thank you for being with us today. you played him well. >> thank you very much. >> the hitman's wife's bodyguard is in theaters now. robin? now to the finale of our
