7:08 am
this flight from new york to ft. lauderdale was evacuated saturday when smoke was spotted coming from the plane. now, spirit airlines said thankfully no one was injured in that accident. the faa expects 2 million to fly this morning. many travelers telling us this morning saying they're thankful for the u ueasonably warmrmemperatures. meaning fewer delays this year from snow. >> devin, thank you. we turn now to yet another police shooting, tensions rising in chicago this morning. the police department there under new scrutiny. officers killing a teenager and also accidentally shooting and killing a mother of five. abc's alex perez is in chicago now with more now. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. the victims' families are demanding answers at this point. chicago police haven't explained exactly why the officer fired his weapon. this morning, the chicago police department is once again facing backlash. >> i went to the hospital, my son has seven -- that's too

7:11 am
after seven months of silent, baghdadi seems desperate to rally his followers. 2015 hasn't been a good year for isis. the u.s.-led coalition has killed his second in command and the isis emir in charge of the oil and gas in the terroirst-controlled parts of syria and iraq. their supply lines have been heavily damaged. isis troops have been forced to retreat from tikrit sandra maddi. in this message he appears to be issuing a call to arms. quote, waging this battle is a duty upon every muslim and no one is excused. he also threatens israel directly. promising to liberate palestine. and boldly claiming that islam will dominate the world anew until the day of judgment. one administration official dismisses the message as more isis propaganda.
7:12 am
issue any comment on this message and won't verify its authenticity. dan. >> thank you, jim avila reporting from hawaii this morning. and it's back to business in the race to the white house. this morning, the candidates hitting the campai trail after a brief christmas break. >> and abc news' chief white house correspondent jon karl is hosting "this week" this morning. jon, you spent some time with republican front-runner donald trump, he's now starting to throw his fire toward hillary clinton and bill clinton. >> yeah, he spent so much tearing apart each and every one of the republican opponents with the exception of ted cruz. but now, he's gone after hillary clinton hard. hillary clinton has made it clear that bill clinton is going to be out on the campaign trail for her in january, which prompted this tweet from from donald trump. basically accusing bill clinton
7:13 am
saying, why would you put him out -- he got a whole long list of sexism. he made it very clear. he'll be bringing up that past, monica lewinsky, gennifer flowers and paula jones, et cetera. get ready for trump to train that negativity on that. one point onhis, the clinton people say they would be absolutely thrilled to run against donald trump, that would be her easiest path to victory. but take a look at this poll, the most recent national poll, which looks at a head-to-head matchup between hillary clinton and donald trump. hillary clinton slightly ahead. they are statistically tied in the most recent national poll. >> yeah, jon, the clinton campaign would love nothing more than a run against trump. we no that. but all eyes on iowa and new hampshire. that gop field is still completely packed. you know, ted cruz riding high in iowa. rubio, christie, bush, all hoping to come out in new hampshire.
7:14 am
spell the end for some of these names? >> it could. first of all in iowa, the big thing as you mentioned ted cruz in many of the recent polls is slightly ahead of donald trump. one of the big questions is, how does trump react if he loses in the state that votes first? you know, he's built his whole campaign by being the winner. if he faces a loss to ted cruz, how does he react? in new hampshire, you have a whole gaggle of candidates who are banking their entire future on winning in new hampshire. you got chris christie, jeb bush, marco rubio. john kasich. not all of them can survive losing in new hampshire. >> a tight race in new hampshire for the democrats as well. jon, thank you, and jon will have much more on that sit-down with donald trump. he's also reviewing are republican presidential candidate governor john kasich. all coming up on abc's "this week." >> that's later this morning. thank you, john. over to ron for a look at the other stories developing

7:25 am
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 or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.
