donald trump. he's face in iowa, facing off with top latino journalist. we'll speak to jorge row most but at first. tom llamas was in the room for the fireworks. good morning, tom. he was in the of room at the conference and jorge ramos sad up and asking tough question. some of us had heated exchanges with donald trump but nothing like this. >> reporter: overnight donald trump's news conference in iowa didn't go exactly as planned. >> i have the right to ask the question. >> go back to univision. >> no. >> reporter: trump tangling with jorge ramos, the univision anchor and host of fusion. >> sit down.
7:07 am
you weren't called. >> reporter: trump looks over at his staff, a bodyguard walks over and ushers ramos. >> don't touch me, sir. >> reporter: out of the news conference. watch what happens outside. a man wearing a suit in a trump sticker confronts ramos. >> get out of my country. get out. >> i'm a u.s. citizen too. >> well, whatever. >> reporter: back inside i asked trump about what just happened at the news conference. do you think you handled that situation correctly? >> i don't believe i've ever met him except he started creaming and i didn't escort him out. you'll have to talk to security. whoever security is escorted him out. certainly he wasn't chosen. just stands up and starts screaming so, you know, maybe he's at fault also. >> reporter: eventually ramos, who is mexican-american, is allowed back in. >> good to have you back. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: sparring about a plan to guild a wall between united states and mexico. >> how are you going to build a 1900-mile-long. >> easy. >> a waste of time and money. >> i don't believe that. >> reporter: this as trump faces
7:08 am

7:09 am
feelings. thanks very much. the man of the moment, jorge ramos joins us right now and, jorge, you said in that piece you've never seen anything like this before but is it what you were expecting given the disputes between univision and mr. trump? >> no, what i would expect is that i can ask a question as a journalist because that's our responsibility and i would expect mr. trump to answer honestly about what he really wants to do because he hasn't given us the specifics and i saw your show on sunday and you pushed him on how he's going to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants and he didn't answer your question and didn't answer mine but i didn't expect to be thrown out of a press conference. never in my life and i've been a journalist more than 30 years. i've never been thrown out of a press conference. >> the tape shows mr. trump looked over to the security guard before the guard came over to you. do you think he was directing the security guard to take you out? >> it is very clear with his body language that he was giving orders and i did wait for my turn. you know how it is in those press conferences, two reporters before me ask a question and then i said i have a question on immigration.
7:10 am
he didn't say anything. i stood up. i started my question. he didn't like my question and when he didn't like my question he motioned so the one security guard would come where i was and then threw me out of the press conference. >> what did the guard say to you? what did they do and what happened back stage? >> i waited outside and then my other colleagues also confronted donald trump and somebody from his campaign came out of the room, told me if i wanted to come in and ask my question and i did. of course, i went -- i came all the way to do that. remember, i tried to have an interview with donald trump. he didn't allow me to have an interview. he published my cell phone. that's what i wanted to do. i came back and asked those questions. >> he eventually did take your questions. have you heard anything else from him or his team? >> no, i didn't hear anything new. he has to explain how he wants to deport 11 million people. can you imagine how is he going to do that? is he going to put people in stadiums? we have to denounce that he wants to deny citizenship to children being born here.
7:11 am
they're citizens just like his and it is impossible to build a 1900-mile wall between mexico and the united states, so that's the kind of questions that i was asking mr. trump and obviously he didn't give any -- >> you pressed him hard with those questions and have had tough things to say about mr. trump. on cnn you said he was the loudest voice of intolerance, division and hatred right now in america. how do you respond to some of your critics like sean spicer, the chief strategist of the rnc who says you're more advocate than journalist? >> what i would say is that as a journalist, you have to take a stand. i think the best journalism happens when you take a stand and when it comes to racism, discrimination, corruption, public lies, dictatorships of human rights as journalists, we are not only require but we are forced to take a stand. >> i think mr. trump will give you an interview now. >> he didn't want to before but right after the interview, he said, we'll talk so let's see if
7:12 am
he keeps his promise. i'm not sure. >> jorge ramos, thanks for your time this morning. >> thanks, george. a lot of people would watch that interview. >> i'm sure they would. now to the wild ride on wall street. markets overseas struggling to overcome fears of a global economic slowdown. after the dow closed down for the sixth straight day, losing another 200 points, the benchmark has plunged nearly 2,000 points since last week and abc's rebecca jarvis is back there at the new york stock exchange there on the floor for us this morning. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, robin. as you can see, stocks have just opened. there's a lot of commotion on the trading floor. we're setting up for another volatile day. at this moment the stocks are up higher, up 400 points. anything can happen in the middle of the trading day. it monday, the stocks fell an unprecedented 1,000 points, in the early morning of trade.
7:13 am
down still 588 points yesterday at this stage in the game. it was looking like stocks would close higher and yet they ended up stumbling, tumbling, in those final moments of trade, down 200 points. i've been talking to the traders on the floor, they tell me, more volatility ahead. in particular the fear gauge, something they can actually track here at the new york stock exchange, fear is biggest thing happening so far. >> now to the fires out west. hundreds of firefighters joining the frontlines. the start of school delayed for many students. abc's kendis gibson is in washington and has the latest. good morning, kendis. >> reporter: robin, good morning. those wildfires raging out of control overnight destroying more properties and now fire crews fearing the dry, windy conditions that kicked back in this week could make the situation worse.
7:14 am

grounding the all-important fire fighting air tankers for days. now the washington state football team considering the unusual move of either rescheduling its september 5th home opener or changing the venue entirely. they're worried the poor air quality could pose a health risk to the tens of thousands of fans. this is a sort of heavy-duty mask recommended for some residents of washington. george. >> well, you can't play football with that. thanks very much. we get the latest on that tropical storm churning in the caribbean. warnings issued for puerto rico and other islands. ginger tracking the path of erika. >> now with 40-mile-per-hour winds moving west at 18 miles per hour but running into some really unfavorable conditions so a lot of wind shear in the upper atmosphere that cuts at the tropical storm. either way we still have high confidence in it making it to puerto rico. that's why the tropical storm warning is in effect. but when you see a cone like this, pay attention to the cone, not the line because that is why, by day five we have a margin of error of 240 miles on either side so it has a lot of
7:16 am
opportunity to change in intensity and also in direction. so that's why you see that very high confidence close to puerto rico then it spreads out. we will be updating at it gets closer to the bahamas and florida. for now, again, no panic. >> thank you, ginger. thank you very much. amy has the top stories starting with an attack overnight. >> that's right, robin. the details are still coming in after a nato military base came under fire. men wearing afghan security uniforms killed two fate to service members. no official word on their nationalities but about half of all nato troops in afghanistan are americans. word that military officials at the pentagon are being investigated for allegedly overstating the progress being made in the fight against isis.

7:32 am
saying labrie told her they had kissed and made the comment i should have stopped before. >> he continued talking and said that there was a lot of playfulness and contact back and forth and the word tease had been thrown around and he described a consensual encounter. >> reporter: but even though labrie who's pleaded not guilty denies ever having sex with the girl in that empty room of new hampshire's st. paul's school, the detective says he told her about wearing protection. >> he said after he put the condom on, it was a sobering moment and that he had a moment of self-restraint and stopping and then he called it a moment of divine inspiration. >> reporter: in a tense moment the defense challenging the detective on getting a then 18-year-old labrie to meet her without his mother present. >> detective, please that was
7:33 am
your goal, wasn't it? >> it was my goal but he made the decision. >> okay, just admit that was your goal. >> i object. >> reporter: meanwhile, expert witnesses testifying that labrie's dna was found on one of the girl's undergarments. >> to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, owen labrie was the minor male contributor of the dna in that fraction of the cutting. >> reporter: the defense says it has four other witnesses standing by to testify, but we've learned this morning they may not use them at all. they are that confident in this case, robin. >> okay, gio, thanks. dan abrams is here with more. picking up on some things gio had in his report. we heard the witness, talking about dna evidence but there are inconsistencies about that. >> yeah. look. it seems clear that his dna was found on her underwear. remember, they started thises is a consensual encounter. no one disagrees with that part and so it's not that surprising that his dna would be found there. the question is, was the incriminating type of dna found there and that's where there's a
7:34 am
subject of debate. and that's a really important question although, look, his defense team could make arguments as to how else it might have gotten there but it's not conclusive evidence at this point, but, look, it's important. >> yeah, we heard from the lead detective. what kind of impact did her testimony -- >> i thought it was very powerful, in particular as she recounts the interview that she did with him, one of the things that i think rings the least true about what he said is that he starts thinking about her age and he says, oh, you know what, i ought not do this. you know, she's too young, et cetera. i mean, that seems to ring so hollow. this idea that he sought her out. he sends her a message to meet up with her, takes her up to this place, puts the blanket down on the floor and then has a moment of divine inspiration where he says, you know what, she's just too young and that i think is one of the most powerful arguments for the prosecution in this case.
7:35 am
>> if he takes the stand it's going to be up to the jury whether or not to believe him. >> he's going to have to explain that and he's going to have to seem credible. this case is going to come down to his credibility on the witness stand. >> all eyes still on him. thanks. >> thanks, guys. we move to a scary story out of iowa. a real estate agent's life threatened and her agency canceling all open houses and calling police after a terrifying phone call. abc's linzie davis has the details. >> reporter: this morning an iowa real estate agency on edge after one of its employees received a threatening call sunday. that stranger telling the agent her name was picked at random out of a hat as part of a gang initiation saying, quote, i'm looking at your business card right now and warning that great harm would be done to her later in the day. >> we don't know if it was a prank. we don't know if it was a very serious phone call. we just simply take it seriously. >> reporter: her company shut down all scheduled open houses that day pulling their agents off the street and requesting

8:13 am
distrustful you can undermine that. >> reporter: while their show may be canceled, their family drama seems to continue in the limelight. >> and the latest issue of "people" magazine hits the stand on friday. >> all right, thank you. now to our series "baby boom" taking a closer look at the most common reason for infertility affecting 5 million women in the u.s. the cause is unknown but new research is raising hopes one day there will be a cure for all of those women having trouble getting pregnant. abc's deborah roberts has our story. >> reporter: it's a mysterious disease and one of the leading causes of infertility in american women. called polycystic ovary syndrome or pcos it can be difficult to diagnose let alone treat. >> it's a disorder that is shockingly underdiagnosed. that's because of lack of awareness in the medical community. >> reporter: symptoms include irregular periods. excess hair on the face, weight gain and diabetes. caused in part by high levels of testosterone.
8:14 am
now new hope for those who suffer. an excitie genomic discovery. >> we found genes that suggest that maybe the cause is the pituitariary hormones that regulate ovulation as well as the receptors for those hormones in the ovary. >> reporter: clues that will hopefully lead to a cure for women like gale donnelly. >> you think you're going crazy but really it's the hormones are going crazy and you're okay. >> reporter: she's been struggling with pcos for 20 years, a thin woman until age 27 when she suddenly gained 50 pounds in just six months. >> it was a huge surprise. i knew something was going wrong. i knew it and i kept going to doctors. >> reporter: it took ten years and two surgeries before a new doctor finally figured out gale had pcos and when she wanted a baby she had trouble getting pregnant. >> we actually had to go through doctors and levels and two rounds of ivf before we had our first one.
8:15 am
>> reporter: but hers is a success story. gale's health is under control and with a little help from a fertility doctor, she has a family and has an important piece of advice for others. >> don't give up. just don't give up. >> reporter: for "good morning america," deborah roberts, abc news, new york. >> we do love that advice, don't give up. here to help with that is dr. jennifer ashton. this new research may be giving a glimpse into what is going on inside people with pcos. can you explain that? >> yeah, we call this in medicine especially in ob/gyn the most common but least well understood hormonal condition affecting women so this is major. the way i describe it to patients is, think of your hormones as instead of whispering their communication, shouting it with a bull horn and let me show you what i mean by that. normally in a normal reproductive woman two signals, from the brain, two main hormones, hl and fsh that talk
8:16 am
to the ovaries, they stimulate to the ovaries to produce systematically, one egg at a time and also produce estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. in pcos you still have the signals but it's being communicated with a bull horn so you have an imbalance. more lh. less fhs. when that hits the ovaries you have an overactivity and a lot of follicles and eggs being produced and then an impal, more estrogen, more male sex hormones, including testosterone, and this can be a huge problem. >> delicate balance. talk to us about signs and simms. >> let's start with things we might be able to see. if you look at an ovary, this is an actual ultrasound. in pcos you see a string of pearls appearance. you see the eggs lined up along the outside of the ovary, but they don't get released. then if you look at the woman head to toe, we can see things starting like male pattern baldness, thinning hair, facial
8:17 am
acne, acne on the back and chest in a woman is usualally hormonal. it's not due to sweat or overexercise and we have to remember with pcos part of it is reproductive and it affects the pancreas, increase insulin resistance and irregular periods and irregular ovulation can be a big problem for a woman trying to conceive. >> absolutely. okay, so no cure known but there are ways that we can treat this. >> there's a mention new of treatment options and probably the biggest three that we talk about, if you're not trying to get pregnant the gold standard is a low dose birth control pill that regulates these hormone levels. brings the testosterone down. for women trying to get pregnant, all the talk in the specialty about is letrozole, off label, but very effective. metformin and clomid. and diet tear behavior can be key. >> and dietary behavior? any tips there? losing 5% of body weight while it's hard can make a big difference. this is a very hard condition to treat. >> a lot of people affected by it. we know you have questions.
8:18 am
dr. ashton will take them throughout the morning. all you need to do is just tweet her @drjashton. george, let's go over to you. new research finds a link between sarcasm and creativity. a study we first saw trending in "wall street journal" and our wise guy nick watt has the details. >> reporter: scientists now say that watching "modern family" will actually make you more creative, smarter, why? >> i wasn't the greatest husband the first time around but i'm trying to do better this time and maybe by my third marriage i'll have it down pat. yeah, that one is going to cost me. >> reporter: it's that sarcasm. >> we discovered when people get exposed to sarcasm either by expressing it or receiving it they actually become more creative. >> i'm sorry my fugitive timetable doesn't coincide with your social calendar. >> reporter: that snarky lied
8:19 am
led to a book just published and a weird conclusion. people shown sarcastic cartoons then perform better on classic cognitive performance tests than those who haven't seen the snarky stuff. >> to understand sarcasm required you in that moment to think flexibly, and that flexibility of thought allows you to continue, at least for some period of time, to think in a more flexible way which is really the foundation of creativity. >> reporter: researchers also advise that expressing sarcasm works well with friends. >> nice pant, nick. >> reporter: yeah, yeah, very funny. >> reporter: not so well with strangers. >> nice bum. right now, she's temporarily smarter, and so am i. professor, this is very important research for mankind. >> i don't even take that comment sarcastically. i'll take it sincerely. >> reporter: nick watt, abc news, los angeles. >> how did we know nick would do this report. >> had so much fun with it. that's great. let's go outside to ginger. >> oh, good morning. look at this crowd. look at all these folks out here.
