claimed falsely, it turned out, that isis was using trump in recruitment videos. well, trump hit back really hard, and we have learned that another terror group, al shabaab, which is al qaeda's affiliate, is now using trump in a video. >> this new clip, which comes out of somalia, features trump announcing his controversial plan to ban muslims from coming to america, and abc's mary bruce is on the story from the white house this morning. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, dan. good morning. well, for weeks there's been a fierce debate over the impacts of trump's call to ban muslims, but now this morning for the first time we're seeing a terror group use his language to boost their fight. >> take heed. >> reporter: this morning, a terrorist group is including a clip of donald trump in a recruitment video. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: the militant group al shabaab, al qaeda's affiliate in somalia, highlighting trump's call to ban muslims entering the u.s. trump's words sandwiched between
the propaganda warnings of u.s born cleric anwar al awlaki who was killed four years ago. >> the west will eventually turn against its muslims citizens. >> reporter: this is the first known instance of extremists using trump's language to attract followers, although not by isis as hillary clinton predicted. >> he is becoming isis' best recruiter. >> reporter: the democratic front-runner ignited a war of words with trump when she warned that his rhetoric would become recruiting fodder. >> they are going to people showing videos of donald trump insulting islam and muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists. >> reporter: trump blasted clinton calling her a liar. >> donald trump is on video and isis is using him on the video to recruit. and it turned out to be a lie. she's a liar. >> reporter: now there has been no reaction yet from the clinton or trump camps, but you can be sure this will continue to be a big issue on the campaign trail in the coming days. paula.
>> yeah, i'm sure we'll be hearing from them shortly. mary, thank you. and there are terror fears here at home and abroad. in france where they've been on high alert, soldiers shot a man outside a mosque as he drove a car towards them. and then in israel, there was a deadly attack at a popular bar. abc's alex marquardt gives us the details from our london bureau. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. here in london, 3,000 police officers were deployed as part of the new year's celebrations. this is one of the many european cities on edge, fearing an attack. it's part of a new situation in europe that one top german official called a general permanent terror threat. french soldiers unload their handguns into a red car which had just tried to ram them twice. the driver is wounded and the car rolls into a ditch. the incident took place outside a mosque that the soldiers were guarding. the driver's motive is still unclear, but it highlights the new nervous reality of life in europe after the deadly paris attacks. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: in his new year's
address, french president francois holland told citizens they are not finished with terrorism and the threat remains at its highest level. paris canceled their new year's eve fireworks and then so did brussels after men were arrested there in connection with a new year's plot. the same night munich evacuated and shut down two of its train stations after warnings of a specific attack involving isis suicide bombers. beyond europe, the global fears reinforced in israel, hardly new to violence and terror, after a gunman seen here in this surveillance video opened fire in central tel aviv spraying a cafe with bullets as people ran for cover. two were killed and seven wounded. the attacker is a young arab-israeli man believed to be mentally unstable. it's not known what his motive was. and israeli authorities have launched a massive manhunt for him. but whether it's in israel, here in europe or beyond, it's clear that the world has gotten off to
a nervous start in this new year. dan. >> that is absolutely correct. alex, thank you. and with america jittery about both isis and the seemingly endless string of mass shootings in this country, president obama is about to wade deeply into the controversial debate over guns. this time he wants to bypass congress and use executive action to make it more difficult for the mentally ill and for criminals to get firearms. abc's jim avila is with the president in hawaii this morning. jim, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the president ends his vacation in hawaii tonight, landing back in washington, d.c. on sunday. and among the first things he plans to do is a monday morning meeting with attorney general loretta lynch on gun control. he said in his radio weekly address that it's an issue he cannot ignore. >> i get too many letters from parents and teachers and kids to sit around and do nothing. i get letters from responsible gun owners who grieve with us every time these tragedies happen.
>> reporter: in the wake of the san bernardino attacks, he suggested to his justice department they look for ways that he could order some kind of gun control on his own. the president saying that he does not trust the congress to do anything on their own, and he's going to have to act with executive orders, dan. >> all right, i'll pick it up from here, jim. again, that meeting with the attorney general is monday. thank you. and now to a very real and present danger here at home. the death toll continues to rise from the historic midwest flooding. the massive cleanup from the catastrophe is under way in some towns while further south people are still bracing from the worst from the mighty mississippi. abc meteorologist indra petersons has the latest from cape girardeau, missouri. hi, indra. >> reporter: good morning, paula. it's hard to believe it's been a week since all that record rain that fell into the midwest, and yet here i am today still standing in water, and unfortunately,
we know the story here is actually just beginning. homes submerged, hundreds of roads washed away, cars stranded. this morning parts of missouri under as much as 16 feet of water after a week of record flooding along the mississippi river. >> it's mind boggling. >> reporter: at least 23 people are dead. others still missing, and the deadly deluge is not over yet. the illinois governor declaring a state of emergency deploying national guard troops to the hardest hit areas as officials and residents brace for the worst. >> this is particularly dangerous to have this kind of rain and then this kind of cold. >> reporter: in some parts of missouri the water finally starting to recede but for many, the damage is already done. matt kraichley is staying with family after his suburban st. louis home was swept away on wednesday. the force of the raging water smashing the house into a bridge. >> i thought it was going to get in the house a couple feet, and then i never -- i didn't even imagine that it would go over the roof and then disappear.
>> reporter: kraichely, no training stranger to flooding, was stunned by the devastation. >> put stuff high. the river goes down, you wash it off and carry on. you never expect your house to float away. >> reporter: outside of st. louis this morning the water is starting to recede but there's new concerns as to whether or not there will be enough drinking water as floodwaters infiltrated the purification system. further to the south the story is just beginning. here in cape girardeau they' hae surpassed the 1993 record and expected to crest at 50 feet by tomorrow morning. now concerns there will be evacuations especially in eastern portions of cape girardeau as that water is still continuing to rise. now, in illinois they already have flash flood advisories out, very atypical because they're concerned the levees will break. they're concerned they'll see the water flood into those regions and further down to the south, places like misand louisiana are carefully watching what's going on here knowing that all of this water is slowly
trickling its way farther down to the south where they're likely to see major flooding possibly 1, if not 2 weeks from now. hard to believe all this water is making its way farther to the south and keep in mind another thing you don't think about. typically when you see floodwaters it's usually in the springtime, not this cold outside. yet, this morning temperatures are below freezing so we see ice here on the ground making even a more difficult commute for motorists in the area. >> as if the situation couldn't get any worse. indra, thank you. we'll check in with you a little bit later. >> this is going to be going on for weeks apparently. indra, thank you. let's take a look at the other morning headlines and as always, we turn it over to mr. ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> happy new year. >> happy new year. >> dan, paula, sara haines, good morning to you. and good morning, everyone. we begin with people around the country and around the world really checking their new year's uber receipts, some of them getting sticker shock. riders took to social media to post their frustration and to post evidence about what they claim is uber taking advantage of the holiday to jack up prices. uber's facebook page had more than 100 complaints.
uber allows prices to surge in times of high demand, and they confirmed to abc news that there is no cap on how high that surge multiplier can go. the company, though, says it warned in advance that new year's eve and early new year's day fares could be higher and urged riders to share the fare by riding with others. bill cosby's wife camille will no longer be able to sit on the sidelines during her husband's mounting legal battles. a federal judge will have to -- she will have to answer questions next week in an upcoming deposition in a civil lawsuit against the comedian, this after she was denied a request by her lawyers to be excused. that civil case is separate from the criminal case against cosby who was charged earlier this week in pennsylvania with aggravated indecent assault on a woman back in 2004. now, the cosbys have been married for more than 50 years. and overseas now and a look at the charred luxury skyscraper in dubai after a towering new year's eve inferno. firefighters there, fire crews were still dousing the embers on
friday as officials try to figure out what caused that massive blaze. investigators are trying to figure out whether a flammable plastic component may have caused the fire to spread so quickly. 14 people were slightly injured. and tributes are pouring in for grammy award winning natalie cole, the singer, who died new year's eve. ♪ unforgettable and forevermore ♪ ♪ and forevermore ♪ that's how you'll stay >> the daughter of legendary jazz musician singer nat king cole was best known for her 1991 virtual duet with her father singing his classic "unforgettable." aretha franklin called natalie cole one of the greatest singers of our time. cole had battled drug problems and hepatitis that forced her to undergo a kidney transplant six years ago. natalie cole was 65 years of age. and take a look at this video from brussels. you're seeing a group of teenagers throwing a car down a flight of stairs.
somebody's idea of a prank, i guess, leading to an underground subway station. remarkfully, nobody was injured even though the station was open, and passengers were coming up the escalator at the same time. one person was arrested. and now to a dramatic video from pennsylvania of a woman escaping just after she escaped from an alleged carjacking attempt. she says the suspected abductor told her that he was holding her hostage as he drove through several towns stopping at gas stations. you can see her pleading for help from a stranger before flagging down police. that suspect was later caught. and finally, a twisted drum solo from motley crue's tommy lee that had the audience gasping in l.a. check this out. ♪ you see there, it happened during motley crue's final show, new year's eve in l.a. there. the roller-coaster ride that was spinning lee 360 degrees vertically. something went wrong leaving him suspended upside down. he was in that position for nearly a minute. he appeared unfazed, tommy lee
did, drumming his way through that equipment malfunction. finally a worker went up to try to help but the roller coaster started again. that band together for more than three decades finishing their last show ever and check out the video. i recommend it. he has some spontaneous comments that we cannot repeat on morning tv or evening tv or any tv. >> i'm shocked. from tommy lee? >> no way. >> come on. i don't believe it. >> you got to check it out. >> this is an idea for like a new album or a new song called "upside down." >> isn't that already -- ♪ upside down no, that's a totally different -- ♪ you turn me >> we're going way, way back there. >> here's my advice after working with these folks, just stay out of it. stay out of it. >> just smile and nod, right? >> right. >> all right. we're smiling and nodding this morning because we're learning more about a very brave teenager who survived nearly 30 hours in single digit temperatures while lost in the utah wilderness. his desperate 911 calls for help have just been released and abc's mara schiavocampo has all of the details for us.
hi, mara. >> reporter: hey, paula, good morning. it is an amazing story of survival. that teen and a friend out duck hunting when he got lost. instead of heading to the car mistakenly walking deeper and deeper into the wilderness eventually spending more than a day in bone-chilling temperatures before a miraculous recovery. >> i don't feel good. i feel like i'm gonna pass out. >> reporter: this morning newly released 911 calls of a missing 14-year-old hunter's fight for survival. >> they're going the wrong way. >> reporter: brayden neilson now recovering at home spent 28 hours lost in 4 degree weather. racing against hypothermia and a dying phone, neilson desperately tries to guide search teams to his location. so close he can see their lights even though they can't see him. >> are you still by the barn? >> it's not a barn. it's hard to explain. i see snow branches, lights, cars. >> reporter: with his battery
now dead, neilson's family, who he had also been calling and texting, begins to fear the worst. >> i went from kind of in my own mind to i can't bury him. >> reporter: five hours after the last word from the young hunter, another 911 call. this time from a home miles away reporting brayden was finally found disoriented and shaken suffering hallucinations from hypothermia, but safe. >> i think god led me that whole way through -- the whole way through there. >> reporter: just amazing. now, brayden was found about seven miles from where he got lost. he's now also recovering from frostbite. officials say he's alive thanks to the warm hunting gear he was wearing and, dan, he says the whole experience taught him the importance of carrying survival gear while you're out. really lucky to be home this new year. >> yeah, i think he'll be teaching a lesson to a lot of people. mara, thank you. >> i guess you could say it's a new year's miracle as well and
this new year's beginning with a huge powerball jackpot. >> a lot of people hoping for a miracle but the drawing is tonight. the jackpot is 334 million bucks. the last time the payout was this high was almost three years ago and sara shockingly decided to do this story. >> you have no idea why they didn't pick you, dan. i'm typically not a lottery girl but when you start to play the "what could i do with $334 million game," this jackpot is looking pretty good but you do have to be in it to win it. this morning americans are rushing out for a chance to start the new year a multi, multi, multimillionaire in tonight's powerball. even wanna-be winners unlucky enough to live in one of the six states that don't offer powerball are making the trek across state lines to pick up their lucky numbers. >> through last wednesday we had sold more than $620 million in powerball tickets. so, people are really starting to get some jackpot fever. >> reporter: at just 1 in 292
million, i'm 20 times more likely to have identical quadruplets than i am to win this jackpot. the odds are super long but could be super worth it. >> look what i found in my pocket. look. what i call them, fun coupons. >> reporter: want a luxury sports car? you could purchase a new one every month for 242 years. or what about traveling the globe, cruise for life and still have $250 million left. >> part of the excitement of playing the lottery is dreaming what you would do. that kind of money. >> buy my new apartment. >> i would throw a party. >> reporter: some players even have a religious system. >> i think i should get three, one for the father, the son and the holy spirit. >> reporter: but this powerball official says the first thing he would do -- >> no matter where you live, get a lawyer, get some banking experience behind you, and then go have some fun with that $334 million. >> reporter: we were just playing the what would you do? dan, what would you do?
