i think it's disgraceful. >> reporter: trump says kovaleski's reporting in the days after 9/11 supports his claim that thousands of muslims in new jersey celebrated when the twin towers fell. but that's not what kovaleski reported, and trump has been criticized for spreading a false story. >> this didn't happen in new jersey. there were plenty of reports and you're -- >> it did happen in new jersey. chuck, it did happen in new jersey. i have hundreds of people that agree with me. >> reporter: and today, new jersey governor chris christie said, flat out, it never happened. >> it did not happen in nblg new jersey that day and it hasn't happened since. >> reporter: mr. trump, today, governor christie said that muslim s muslims celebratedn new jersey on 9/11. today he said that never happened and you should stop talking about that. >> well he didn't say that the other day, he was very weak the other day, so the other day he said well, he doesn't know, and now i guess he feels a little been emboldened. he must be careful with what he says. >> reporter: this morning, trump tweeting in part, how is chris
christie running the state of new jersey when he's spending all of his time in new hampshire? new jerseyais not happy. >> tom llamas, thank you. overseas tonight, to paris and that unprecedented climate change summit. president obama there, who said today, the united states deserves some of the blame for climate change. but there is also something else on the agenda. isis. president obama taking time to visit the bataclan where concert goers were gunned down in the attacks. and how do you keep a city safe just weeks after those attacks? abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl traveling with the president. >> reporter: it's the biggest presidential photo-op in history. 150 world leaders crowding onto the stage in paris, vowing to combat climate change, a problem president obama said the u.s. helped cause as one of the world's top emitters of carbon pollution. >> the united states of america
not on recognizes our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it. >> reporter: but the climate agenda here has been overshadowed by the more immediate concern about terrorism. president obama laying a rose at the growing memorial outside the bataclan theater, where 89 were killed in the deadliest of the attacks here on november 13th. and extraordinary security measures to prevent an attack on the summit. here's something you never see. paris with no cars on the street. but the government has shut down virtually every major roadway in the central part of the city. but you can still get around. with so many streets closed, the government has allowed everybody to ride the metro today for free. president obama ventured out to one of paris's top restaurants for dinner with france's president, discussing climate and, of course, the challenge of combatting isis. >> and jon karl with us now from paris. we all remember the last major climate change meeting in 2009. not much happened. what is different this time?
says that this time, 200 countries have come into this summit with their own plans to reduce carbon pollution, but remember, these are voluntary plans, nothing here is binding. >> voluntary plains. and this meeting comes right after the terror attacks there in paris. we saw president obama and president putin together. no images of their actual meetings, though, but have you learned what they talked about and is it possible they would team up to take on isis? >> reporter: they spoke for 30 minutes. president obama expressed regret for turkey's downing of that russian fighter jet. he is urging both russia and turkey to work with the united states to find a political pollution for syria, but david, no sign here of a breakthrough on that. >> all right, jon karl with us from paris tonight. jon, thank you. now, to the stunning new report out this evening, and it's your money. how your taxpayer dollars are being spent, and what some are calling major government overreach. from licenses for runaway llamas, to a gas station in
afghanistan, one gas station, costing american taxpayers $43 million. abc's mary bruce, back at it tonight, chasing down answers on capitol hill and tracking your money. >> reporter: remember these guys? the lam mas on the loose that took over the internet? after their great escape, the federal government took time to tell the owners they needed permission from washington to showcase the animals. just one out of 100 examples of alleged federal overreach highlighted in a new report. it's the kind of federal pork that makes taxpayers squeal. $65,000 to study what happens to bugs when the lights go out? $2.6 million on a weight loss program for truck drivers. and $375,000 to study the dating habits of seniors. leaving the study's author, asking, government spending or match.com? we couldn't find any lawmakers coming to the defense of this spending. pennsylvania congressman joe pitts, who oversees some spending, is pointing the funger
at the agencies spending the money. why are we seeing $2.6 million for weight loss programs for truckers? >> it's just mind boggling. i'm sure they'll come back with some kind of an excuse. >> reporter: james lankford, who compiled the list, is putting washington on notice. >> they get away with it because no one's watching, and that's the challenge. >> reporter: but david, wash dogs don't say, expect to see any of this change any time soon, despite the $105 billion identified in the study, its author tells us, he's confident he'll see more of this kind of government spending. >> keeping them honest tonight. mary bruce, thank you. now, to a fall from grace for the man once considered one of new york's most powerful politicians. former assembly speaker sheldon silver facing up to 130 years in prison now, found guilty today of federal corruption charges including bribery, extortion and money laundering. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this monday. and on this cyber monday, the
