7:02 am
scenes like this are unfolding. we've had gauze dozens of people rescued from vehicles. numbers of homes have been evacuated. the rain continues and the flooding will continue throughout the morning. and we have seen a lot of flooding as well in houston over the weekend, so the entire texas coastline really getting hammered for the past few days. and because of that, we have flash flood watches that will remain ongoing until 11:00 a.m. and probably through parts of this afternoon. the next four days, another 3 to 4 inches of rainfall. the flooding threat will be continuing here. we also have a severe weather threat, george, as we go through today and tomorrow. we'll talk more about that in ten minutes. >> you're just full of good news. thanks very much. the race for the white house now and more signs that donald trump is bringing the gop together, even as he faces new questions about his treatment of women and new attacks from hillary clinton and president obama. abc's tom llamas here with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. when it comes to donald trump's past with women, even the rnc chairman says these are things trump will have to answer for. this, as hillary clinton gets a little help in trying to take down trump.
7:03 am
this morning, donald trump's readiness to be commander in chief now being questioned by the president himself. >> it's not cool to not know what you're talking about. that's not challenging political correctness. that's just not knowing what you're talking about. >> reporter: hillary clinton also taking on trump over his rhetoric. >> this is the talk of a loose cannon who is making statements and creating confusion. >> reporter: the attacks coming as trump faces growing allegations he's sexist, including a front page "new york times" investigation that involved dozens of women who crossed paths with donald trump, some saying he crossed the line. former miss utah temple taggart saying that trump introduced himself by kissing her on the lips. she thought to herself, oh, my god, gross. the report also highlighting statements like this to a female contestant on "the apprentice." >> pretty picture.
7:04 am
>> reporter: trump calling the story dishonest, a hit piece and part of a witch hunt. in the past, trump has defended his treatment of women. >> i respect women. >> reporter: the presumptive nominee also still dealing with the fallout from allegations he called reporters pretending to be a media spokesperson for himself. >> he gets called by everybody. he gets called by everybody in the book. in terms of women. >> reporter: the reporter on that call tells abc news trump later admitted it was him but now denies it. "saturday night live" having a field day with this bizarre turn in the race for president. >> mr. trump is the real-life inspiration for "iron man." who am i? i'm his publicist joey pepperoni. no, i'm not donald trump in disguise. this is just what classy people sound like. >> reporter: i'll keep an eye
7:05 am
out for joey pepperoni on the campaign trail. now, on the former policy front, trump and one of our biggest allies, great britain, not seeing eye to eye. prime minister david cameron critical of trump and trump responding this morning it looks like we're not going to have a very good relationship. robin? >> all right, tom, now a closer look at donald trump and his taxes as he faces new calls to release his returns. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with more on that. good morning, brian. >> reporter: well, good morning, robin. trump remains on the defensive this morning after telling george last friday that he fights hard to pay as little tax as possible. but that his tax rate, what he pays in taxes is nobody's business. ♪ start me up >> reporter: trump's secrecy about his finances continues to fuel his critics with his failure to produce his tax returns. >> you've got to ask yourself, why doesn't he want to release them? >> reporter: going back decades trump has been a master of tax loopholes. when he bought this luxurious yacht, the $29 million "princess," he said it he did it for the good of america. >> i like to see the great jewels of the country being owned by the people of this
7:06 am
country, and it had a big play as to why i bought this boat. >> reporter: but that patriotic feeling did not include paying the state sales tax on the purchase to new jersey where the boat was docked. the multibillionaire used offshore and out-of-state corporations to buy the yacht, and save him a tax bill of $1.75 million. >> if there's a loophole donald is laser focused on it. >> reporter: the latest, a multimillion dollar tax dispute over the sprawling championship trump national golf course he owns in new york. trump says the private club is worth $50 million but now his tax lawyers claim it's only worth $1.3 million, which would cut trump's tax bill by 90%. town officials are outraged. >> trump says he represents the little guy, but the little guy is going to have to pay his taxes for him if he's not going to be paying his fair share. >> reporter: in at least two cases trump came under official scrutiny. a 1986 investigation into the high-end bvglari jewelry store
7:07 am
on fifth avenue reportedly linked trump and others to a scheme to evade sales tax. in this case, involving a $65,000 piece of jewelry. >> the tax scam is a jeweler sends an empty box out of state. and if you actually live out of state you may not have to pay the tax. but donald trump lived across the street from the jeweler. there's no way that he didn't know that this was improper conduct. >> reporter: in another case in the 1980s, new york city officials said that an audit found that trump and his partners at the grand hyatt hotel had shortchanged the city out of $2.8 million. >> it was an example of extraordinary flimflammery. >> reporter: auditors found trump in this letter he signed formally authorized accounting changes that understated the hotel's profits to lower what was owed the city in rental fees. >> sneaky, oh, it was very sneaky. he cheated the city of a substantial sum of money. >> reporter: the hotel disputed that audit. and despite the letter that trump signed about the accounting changes
7:08 am
said trump had no management role. in a statement to abc news trump said, trump said the allegations raised in our story are decades old and not worthy of a response. let's talk about this now with megyn kelly of fox news. welcome back to "gma." >> thank you. >> you have these new questions about taxes, he's not going to release tax returns. these questions about women as well. i was watching reince priebus. it was yesterday on "this week" and other shows saying, listen, he'll have to answer these questions but it won't matter. because he's a different kind of candidate. is that what you're sensing from your viewers? >> i don't know about that. you know, i think that the republican women have warmed a little to trump, although his unfavorables even with republican women are high, still unusually high. romney lost by 11 points. the republican candidate is going to need to do better than mitt romney, although trump is doing quite well with white men. i think that what the campaign is saying is that women don't vote based on women's issues. and i think what the republican women that's true.
7:09 am
they don't vote based on abortion or birth control or one of these other traditional issues that some democrats try to tout. the question remains to be seen whether they will vote or it will impact their vote to have a candidate who speaks in the way that trump does and has more most of his lifetime about women. >> especially if he sees tens of millions of advertising. democrats will start advertising oens trump on wednesday we're learning especially on this issue. >> his defense is, it was while was an entertainer, while i was doing "celebrity apprentice." or, you know, a playboy around manhattan but, of course, the truth is he said a lot of those comments in the past year. >> many to you. >> i've been on the receiving end of a few. >> so tell us about this, you've got this interview coming up tomorrow night on the fox broadcast network. trump famously feuding with you for several months. so how did you guys get together? >> so i had been looking for an opportunity with him to make that stop. you know, as you know as a journalist you don't want to be the story. you watch to cover the story. in april there was a lull in the tweet storm and i seized on the
7:10 am
opportunity. i had been looking for months for just the right window to go in there. but every time i thought i was there, he'd start up again, whether it was boycotting the second fox news debate or calling me crazy and sick after the third debate. it was just always something, so there was a lull and i reached out to him and he agreed to take the meeting just the two of us at trump tower, which was at my request, including the two of us. and he agreed to that. >> after that an interview did come about. we'll see a lot of it tomorrow night on the fox broadcast network. let's take a look at one exchange you had on the subject of bullying. >> most kids between the ages of 6 and 16 have been bullied at some point in their lives. were you ever bullied? >> no, i wasn't. but i have seen bullying and bullying doesn't have to just be as a child. i mean, i know people are bullied when they're 55 years old. >> it can happen when you're 45. >> it happens, right? but you have to get over it. fight back. do whatever you have to do. i've been saying during this whole campaign i'm a
7:11 am
counterpuncher. you understand that. i'm responding. no. i then respond to times maybe ten, i don't know, i mean i respond pretty strongly. but just about in all cases i've been responding to what they did to me. >> kind of a mellow donald trump right there. are we going to see a different side of him? >> i think so. i think you will see him as you haven't seen him before. and i'll tell you, it was fascinating doing the interview because that was the first time we ever discussed what happened between us. we didn't discuss that in his office. this is the first time it happens on camera. and there are some tense moments, george. there were some, i think, honest moments and contentious moments. i would say overall the tone was cordial. but there will be some moments where people are feeling a little uncomfortable. >> we will watch for it tomorrow night. m megyn kelly, thanks for joining us. >> robin? we'll move on and talk about what is happening with travel. travel problems for passengers on an l.a. bound flight, a u.s. air marshal reportedly accused of being intoxicated, removed. david kerley has the latest for
7:12 am
us from reagan national airport. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the tsa saying it's taking these allegations seriously and that federal air marshal will have a lot of questions to answer. now this happened on an afternoon flight from london to l.a. yesterday during boarding. the captain reportedly smelled alcohol on the air marshal's breath. and these marshals usually are armed. so the captain called police and according to scotland yard, quoted by a london newspaper, the federal air marshal was actually found to be over the limit but he hadn't broken a uk law, unfortunately, federal air marshals are restricted on when they can drunk, even when off duty. united airlines says it's sorry for the inconvenience to its passengers, and the tsa says it holds its tsa employees to the highest professional standards. no word on whether that air marshal is actually back here in the country. >> is there any reason for concern this incident could be a sign of a bigger problem? >> reporter: yes, this is the first time i've heard of a federal air marshal that has been
7:13 am
boarding an aircraft and the captain thought he might have been over the limit for alcohol. so i don't see any trend so far on this. >> appreciate that. thank you, david. >> thank you, robin. we're going to turn now to an emotional memorial service held for prince. hundreds invited to the jehovah's witness church where he worshipped to celebrate his life and abc's eva pilgrim is outside paisley park in minnesota where fans have created their own memorial. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is the program those who attended prince's private memorial received. these were people who knew him, who interacted with him daily. people who say they knew a different side of the superstar. prince's close friends and colleagues packed into this jehovah's witness kingdom hall to remember the superstar. about 500 people filing in sunday night, including several celebrities like close friend sheila e. and comedian sinbad. but to many of those mourning the superstar he was simply brother nelson. >> it's a different side of what the world sees to him. it was personal with us. >> cameras were not allowed
7:14 am
inside but abc news getting an inside look at the details of the service. ♪ beautiful ♪ love and blessed >> prince's own words there on the program, lyrics from his song "beautiful loved and blessed". >> just shared stories about how prince found his faith and how impactful it was to his life. >> reporter: the service beginning with a traditional religious song, followed by an opening prayer. his close friend, spiritual mentor and church elder larry graham, the former bassist for sly age the family stone saying while it was important for prince to give his fans joy through his music, it was more important to share scripture. his biggest joy was sharing the hope of everlasting life. prince's siblings were not in attendance. his sister tyka posting on facebook they are planning a public memorial for sometime in august. george? >> okay, eva, thanks very much. let's go to amy for the other stop stories
7:15 am
starting with the deadly bus crash in texas. >> a sad story and now there are questions about that charter bus. it flipped over killing eight people. the company had twice been ordered by inspectors to take one of its buses off the road to fix problems with the brakes and emergency exit. no word if either problem played a role in this crash. the road was wet at the time of the crash. investigators haven't been able to speak to the driver because he was seriously injured. and there are new details about this wild crash on a bridge near new york city. a truck carrying steel flipping over just as it passes by a car. look at that. the driver of that car says seconds earlier he had tapped on his brakes to keep a safer distance from the truck. if he had not done that, he certainly may have been killed in that crash. a massive cocaine bust is being called the largest in colombia's history. police seized 8 tons of the drug buried on a banana farm. they arrested three people in connection with the country's largest drug trafficking group. that cocaine worth an estimated
7:16 am
$240 million. and an embarrassing mistake caused police to urgently evacuate 50,000 people from this british soccer stadium. the game was canceled after officers found a cell phone tied to a gas pipe in the bathroom. well, it turns out it was a fake bomb that was left behind a training exercise. police say the device was incredibly life-like. and speaking of embarrassing mistakes, do not believe everything your gps tells you. case in point, a canadian woman who followed hers right down a boat ramp into lake huron. she actually had to roll down her window, quickly and was able to climb out of it and swim to shore. it was a dark foggy night and that water, by the way, 4 degrees celsius. >> oh! >> don't you hate when that happens? you know it's wrong. but you still -- >> i don't know. >> that's an extreme version of it. speaking of extreme, may i? i mean, come on, that bench-clearing baseball brawl.
7:17 am
you guys need to see this to believe it. the fight between the rangers and bluejays now being called one of the worst in years, as you get a glimpse. this morning, the coaches saying it was ugly and unfortunate. >> you don't normally see this. >> reporter: it was a moment that left fans wondering if they were watching a baseball game or a prize fight. it gadge in eighth inning of the rangers/blue jays game when jose bautista took a low fastball to the ribs. >> what happened here? uh-oh. >> reporter: on the next play he slid hard into second, trying to break up a double play. >> bautista got the worst of that exchange. >> reporter: the rangers second baseman had other ideas, cold cocking him. seconds later, a massive bench-clearing brawl. >> the bench is empty now. >> reporter: eight different people ejected. after the game bautista admitted it takes a little bit of a bigger man to knock me down.
7:18 am
there you have it. the feud actually extends back to last year when he flipped his bat after a home run. the rangers won, by the way, last night, 7-6. >> expect a lot of penalties coming out of that one. >> yeah. >> little boys and girls are watching. can you please play like adults? >> that's true. back to rob with more on the severe weather threat down south. >> thank you. i love that lesson of the day, amy. and stay in school, kids. we have severe weather across parts of the south, the plains, parts of texas panhandle. tomorrow it spreads through the south and through san antonio. those areas getting somewhere flooding. big blast of cold air if you're waking up across the northeast this morning, it is chilly. we have frost and freeze warnings across much of the great lakes and in through pennsylvania and the ohio river valley. temperatures falling below freezing in some spots. time now for your select cities, brought to you by sprint.
