i spent six years there. two of my kids were born in chicago, so go cubbies. >> fans were celebrating the cubs' big win. the team world series bound outside wrigley field, the sign that says it all, it says national league champions. >> and look at this, champagne showers in the locker room as players celebrated in the clubhouse as well. i got to say, i stayed up for this game and got three hours of sleep but i'm pretty sure people in chicago still aren't sleeping. >> i'm sure. this says it all. the headline from the "chicago tribune." got their goat, a reference to the cubs curse. it's been 71 years since they went to the world series, and more than a century since they last won one. abc's alex perez is outside wrigley field with more on this historic win. and, alex, this is your hometown. >> reporter: that's right, good morning, tom, good morning, paula. you know, i grew in up city and we've been waiting much longer than i've been alive for this moment. you can still feel the energy here from the kroutds, and
across the city everywhere, fans are proudly flying the "w." it's been a long time coming. on the field, and in the it's been a long time coming. on the field, and in the streets. >> the city knows how to have fun. >> reporter: chicago is celebrating a historic night. after 71 years of painful disappointment, wrigley field is flying the "w" as the cubs head to the world series. cubs snatching their first national league pennant since 1956, when famous fan, dorothy farrell was just 19 years old. today she's 90, and she plans to celebrate just as hard. how are you going to celebrate tonight? >> i'll probably have a jagrmeister. >> joe maddon, high fly into right. >> reporter: last night the cubs shutting out the los angeles dodgers and walking off with a five-run lead. chicago wearing down the dodgers' star pitcher, clayton kershaw. and grabbing an early lead with two runs in the first inning. >> and one out.
>> reporter: while the cubs' kyle hendricks struck out six batters before their closer vanquished the curse of the goat with this double play. >> left side. out. out! the cubs have won the pennant. >> that might have been the best game i pitched all year. >> i'm sleeping with this thing tonight. are you kidding me? we're going to the world series. >> reporter: fans in the stands hugging it out and breaking down in tears. and as much as we want to celebrate, the truth is the next challenge is right around the corner, game one of the world series. the cubs will take on the cleveland independeianndians. the indians haven't been at the series since 1997, so, paula and tom, i'll take a moment to do something i probably wanted to do a long time ago, so -- and who knows when it's going to happen again so i want to do it now. >> don't hold your breath. don't hold your breath. it's a long time coming. >> my lucky hat. >> all right, alex, thank you so much. and joining us now is espn's tony reali.
tony, you know, fans they don't know how to process this because the last time they were in the world series, a lot of people weren't even alive. i love this tweet from john cusack. he said, it feels -- it's very hard to describe what it feels like. cubs fans, help me out. they don't want know how to process it. >> so you're asking me to describe the indescribable. thank you very much. let me put it this way. the last time they were there, 1945, there was no moving video of the game. the game was not televised. what we showed, "the chicago tribune" headline, that black and white photo, is all we have got. so it's an incredible thing, and that was before baseball was integra integrated. before there was a los angeles dodgers or new york mets or a number of teams in the league. that was how far back this goes. and the ticket prices in 1956, about $6 or so. >> 6 bucks. >> now you can't get into wrigley next week for anything less than 2,000. >> wow. >> okay, so there's a little bit of a bias this morning with alex and paula for the cubs, but this is a big year for the indians, as well. >> sure. if it wasn't for chicago we'd be talking about cleveland.
that's a franchise that hasn't won the world series since 1948, and to make things even more interesting for this city, cleveland now thinks they are believeland after what happened with lebron james in the nba final this is year, and game one of the world series is tuesday. right across the street one hour earlier ring night for the cleveland cavaliers. they're going to be donned as champions in the nba season so that's going to be a big night in cleveland. >> no doubt there's a lot of good things happening in cleveland. we're talking about the two longest franchises for droughts rather for these particular franchises. who's favored to win? >> chicago is favored to win, they've won 103 games this year. they are the best team in baseball, but it's almost like a movie. but even in the movies, "back to the future" and "major league," it took the sequel for both to get their world series appearance. it's amazing. >> i love what you said earlier, the first time the cubs will be in the world series on a live broadcast, live tv broadcast. been a long time. >> we'll be able to watch history. >> tony reali, thank you so much. so good for baseball too. all right, let's turn to politics now. 16 days left in the presidential

millions of undocumented immigrants, and even to build that wall, but when it comes to who exactly will pay for that wall, and how -- >> who's going to pay for the wall? [ chanting [ chanting "mexico" ] >> reporter: the republican nominee is now offering something of a payment plan. >> mexico will be reimbursing the united states for the full cost of such a wall. >> reporter: trump also added a new item to his priorities list, taking revenge on the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. >> all of these liars will be sued after the election is over. >> reporter: but even as trump accuses his accusers of lying, a new woman has come forward represented by attorney gloria allred. >> if mr. trump thought that such bullying tactics would silence his accusers and prevent other women from coming forward, he will be sorely disappointed. >> reporter: adult film star, jessica drake, says trump kissed her and two other women without their consent ten years ago. the trump campaign insists this
latest allegation like all the others is untrue. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. total fabrication. >> reporter: abc news is unable to confirm any of the accusers' allegations but worth noting, the trump university lawsuit comes up in late november, so between that and the revenge lawsuits against the accusers, a lot of court dates for donald trump coming up in the first 100 days. >> certainly so. david, thank you. we want to move on to hillary clinton who was busy campaigning with her running mate, tim kaine, in pittsburgh and philadelphia, calling the election critically important and reaching out to trump supporters. abc's mary bruce is in our washington bureau with that part of the story. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well, the gang is back together this morning stumping side by side for the first time in six wiex weeks. clinton and kaine are feeling confident and looking ahead as their momentum grows in those key battleground states.
>> i think she looks damn presidential. >> reporter: up in the polls and together again, hillary clinton and running mate, tim kaine, are making their closing argument against donald trump. >> anger is not a plan. >> reporter: hoping for a swing state sweep, the clinton campaign is playing offense. >> it's important to give you something to vote for, not just against. >> reporter: and taking shots at trump. >> if he's president, he'll spend his time suing women who have made charges against him based on his behavior. tim and i are going to keep talking about what we want to do. >> reporter: looking ahead, clinton's reaching out to trump supporters as she faces the possibility of uniting a fiercely divided country. >> i understand that they need a president who cares about them, will listen to them, and i want to be their president too. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: she's getting some extra help.
bill clinton tried to sway this trump supporter in florida. >> what is it, trump or clinton? what are we going to say? >> excited for november 8th? >> reporter: with just 16 days to go, the stars are aligning to get out the vote. miley cyrus registering college kids in virginia as katy perry rallies first time voters in nevada. >> and i can use my power to vote. who is going to use their power to vote? >> reporter: now the clinton campaign this morning is not just focus on winning their race, but also on winning those critical down ballot races. over these next two weeks, clinton will be speaking out even more, boosting democratic candidates and going after their republican opponents. tom and paula. >> mary bruce for us this morning, mary, thank you. let's bring in george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. george, donald trump delivered what was supposed to be a major address in gettysburg, and yet the headlines coming out of it were still settling scores 16 days out. >> it was really a tale of two speeches yesterday in gettysburg. he did lay out a 100-day agenda
in the back half but the whole front half of the speech was his list of grievances against the media, talking about voter fraud, talking about the election being rigged and, of course, that threat to sue his accusers, which stepped on the message. >> good morning to you, george. nice to see you. mary just mentioned it, the republicans are really concerned about the trump effect down ballot. the democrats can take over control on the senate with what? four or five -- >> they need to pick up four seats. right now there are nine or ten that are competitive right now and with every point that hillary clinton picks up right now, it has the prospect of bringing in more democrats in the senate and the house. the house is a much tougher battle for the democrats. they have to pick up 30 seats. you would need to see, like, a 10 or 12-point win to make that even possible. >> but the senate is a strong possibility. >> no question, it's very possible. >> and this morning you've also got the results of our latest abc news/"washington post" poll and what voters are saying about the rigged election. right? >> absolutely. you know, this is coming out at 9:00 a.m. so we can't give the exact results but i think what you'll see is what a decisive month october was and those debates were for hillary clinton. one of the things we've seen in other public polls, her
increasing her lead every single week, and these arguments that donald trump is making right now about a rigged election, about these women accusers, not working. >> yeah. all right, george has a big show this morning coming up. one-on-one also with eric trump and clinton campaign chief strategist, joel benenson, plus independent presidential candidate, eric mcmullin. thoost later on "this week." >> great to have you, thank you. a reminder, download the abc news app and get live streaming breaking news reports from the campaign trail. tom. all right. iraqi forces closing in on mosul facing fierce opposition from isis. a senior u.s. official called it a complex endeavor expected to last for months. abc's martha raddatz near mosul with the very latest. >> reporter: good morning, paula and tom. from northern iraq, this attack on mosul is expected to be the largest attack since the u.s. invaded iraq in 2003. there are about 30,000 iraqi troops taking part. about 5,000 u.s. troops are assisting the iraqis. you can see some u.s. soldiers behind me right now, and about
500 of those 5,000 are outside the wire, outside the bases, assisting the iraqis close up, but not on the very forward line. this battle is expected to take months, and will be more intense the closer they get to mosul. the aftermath is expected to be even more complex. tom and paula. >> all right, thanks so much, martha. let's send things over to dr. ron claiborne, a look at the other stories we're tracking. so big news in the media world. >> that's right, dr. paula faris. >> you're welcome. i'm actually a nurse. >> tom and rachel, robert, good morning to you. good morning, everyone. we're going to begin with a big deal, that's a megabusiness deal. telecom giant at&t agreeing to buy media conglomerate time warner for $85.4 billion. that's a lot of money. the move would transform at&t into a media giant able to produce and distribute content to millions. the companies are hoping to seal that deal by the end of this year, but the sale will require the approval of government
