7:00 am
good morning, america. president-elect trump lashes out, launching a twitter tirade over those calls for an election recount, making the claim with zero evidence that millions of americans voted illegally. and that he should have won the popular vote. the recount set to get under way in wisconsin. hillary clinton's campaign says they're joining in. end of an era. celebrations and mourning. over the death of dictator fidel castro. now new questions about the united states' future with cuba and trump's promise to "roll back relations." "world news tonight" anchor david muir is live in havana. lucky to be alive. the kidnapped mom found bound on the side of the road weeks after she was reportedly abducted on a jog. an eyewitness who discovered that mother of two now speaking out. >> i figured if she was willing
7:01 am
to risk being hit by a car, she must really need help. >> as the massive manhunt ramped up for two women accused of being linked to the abduction. ♪ and get ready. it's cybermonday. and we have secrets to huge savings, after a record black friday frenzy. >> okay, you got the red. >> the online tricks to use right now. and the deals you'll find only on "gma." and good morning, america. we hope you had a great holiday weekend. thanksgiving in the rearview mirror now. how many days until christmas? >> 26. >> 26 days until christmas. the shopping has already begun. >> i know, and unfortunately, some shoppers got a little too intense. take a look at what happened. this is at a nike store near seattle. >> what did they do? >> they were searching for bargains, i guess. and didn't care about the mess they left behind. we have a big event.
7:02 am
special deals from tory johnson coming up that you can purchase from the comfort of your computer. that is coming up, but we begin with a new election firestorm. the green party has called for a recount in the key swing state of wisconsin. recounts expected in michigan and pennsylvania, as well. all three were close. hillary clinton's campaign joining the efforts, though they expect no change in the final results. >> donald trump is railing against that effort, unleashing a twitter storm on sunday alleging millions of people voted illegally without any evidence, and abc's david right is in madison, wisconsin, where officials are set to meet today. good morning to you, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. donald trump won this state by less than 1%. fewer than 22,000 votes. so it's possible, but unlikely that this recount process that begins her today, could end up denying him the state, but trump is complaining loudly about it. donald trump always railed against what he called the rigged system. >> a big part of the rigged system. we call it a rigged system.
7:03 am
you know, we're in a rigged system, folks. >> reporter: now he is blasting the effort to recount the vote in the rust belt as a green party scam. the people have spoken, and the election is over, he said in his first comments about the recount. we must accept this result and then look to the future. the effort being launched by the green party is being joined by the clinton campaign. to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. clinton's lawyer says the campaign has been urged by supporters to quote, do something, anything, to investigate claims that the election results were hacked. but concedes that the clinton campaign's own investigators have not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology. >> why in the world can't the democrats, quote, accept the election results? >> reporter: trump's own twitter posts got more and more heated this weekend.
7:04 am
first, he claimed to have won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally. then he claimed serious voter fraud in virginia, new hampshire and california. so why isn't the media reporting on this? serious bias, big problem. in both cases, trump offered no proof to back up his claim. abc found no evidence of widespread fraud. the official tally has trump trailing clinton in the popular vote by more than 2 million. california's secretary of state called his allegation of voter fraud there absurd, insisting his reckless tweets are inappropriate and unbecoming of president-elect. again, it is highly unlikely that this recount effort is going to change the election results, but it is conceivably possible, especially if you add in michigan and pennsylvania, so donald trump is
7:05 am
clinton a hypokrcrite, george. >> let's talk more with chief political analyst matthew dowd. let's start with the claim, from donald trump, baseless claim, that millions voted illegally, still extraordinary that he is complaining after he won the election about voter fraud. >> george, the irony of this is he says you can trust 100,000 votes spread across three states, but you can't trust 2 million votes spread across 50 states. with this. one, he made this up. intentionally or unintentionally. you can't do that as president-elect. the most important aspect of a president is credibility and trump. every time donald trump does something like this, he undermines it. and three, more importantly, the country is searching for a common set of facts and the truth. and when donald trump does this, it continues to divide the country. >> some critics see a strategy, a diversion from other stories going on in the transition, particularly conflicts of interest over his business holdings in so many different countries. that evidence continues to pile
7:06 am
up during the transition. >> i think that's the anchor that could ultimately hurt donald trump in this. it's not the appointments or policies. it is what are all these conflicts of interest and the level they rise in countries all over the world where he has got particular business interest. i think that's the thing that's going to follow him through this entire presidency. >> finally, we're also seeing a pretty extraordinary public fight over his pick for secretary of state. we know he's talked to mitt romney. we saw his campaign manager transition adviser, kellyanne conway, raising real questions about romney saying there would be backlash among his conservative base. one of the questions is, would she be doing this if donald trump didn't want her to? >> well, george, you know, it's very unprecedented. either she's doing it because he wanted her to do it, which is weird to begin with. why doesn't he make an announcement he's no longer considering him? or she's not and doing it on her own. she's gone rogue. in the course of this, and the funny thing about this is is
7:07 am
it's ironic that kellyanne conway is saying that donald trump shouldn't appoint mitt romney because he wasn't loyal in the primary, and kellyanne conway worked on behalf of ted cruz, attacking donald trump, and then went to work wifor hims a campaign manager. >> thank you, matthew dowd. trump and millions around the world are reacting to the death of fidel castro. cuba is observing a nine-day period of mourning. and here in the u.s., castro's passing is igniting strong emotions and fierce political debate here in the states. "world news tonight" anchor, david muir is in havana reporting on that. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. as you know, fidel castro defied u.s. presidents for nearly half a century. 1.2 nations on the brink of nuclear war. we have talked to so many cubans in the streets here. one man telling me, without castro, cuba is nothing. when i asked two young women are they looking forward to the possibility of new freedoms here, they told me they're happy with what they have. and they, too, are honoring their leader.
7:08 am
walk down the streets of cuba this morning, and you can sense it. a country in mourning. the streets nearly empty. the flags at half staff. and the music that i typically hear in the streets here, silent. a country dealing with the loss of their long-time leader, fidel castro. he died late friday night. [ speaking spanish ] he tells us he's proud of his leader, but that fidel castro has already been gone for a long time. ♪ more than 200 miles away in miami, florida, the mood for many is very different. cuban exiles flooding the streets over the weekend, celebrating. waving the flag high and dancing. they say this is the end to an oppressive regime. >> he did a lot of damage. especially for us that came in the '60s. we left everything. >> reporter: and fidel castro, every bit is controversial among american leaders. president obama, who recently renewed diplomatic ties with cuba, offering a hand of
7:09 am
friendship, saying in a statement, we offer condolences to fidel castro's family. saying history will judge and record the enormous impact of this figure. but he has been criticized because of fidel's human rights abuses. >> i hope we don't see barack obama and joe biden and hillary clinton and democrats lining up to lionize a murderous tyrant and thug. >> reporter: president-elect trump striking a similar tone, calling castro, a quote, brutal dictator. mr. trump saying his administration will do all it can to ensure prosperity and liberty for the cubans. we talked to american tourists here. this group from texas. asking what the future with the u.s. should look like. what are your hopes for the cuban people now? >> i hope we can continue to have good relations with cuba. because i think that's what the people have indicated to us that they want. >> reporter: they're expecting a mass gathering here in havana today at the plaza de la revolution.
7:10 am
where castro would famously address the cuban people for hours at a time. we asked the cubans here in the streets what they think about the future of cuba and the u.s. after the thaw in relations from the last couple of years. they say much of that now depends on what they hear from president-elect trump. george. >> it is the in his hands now, david. thanks very much. let's get more from jon karl. we know during the campaign, trump said he would reverse the executive orders, normalizing relations that president obama made. the question is how far he will go. what will he demand? can he get it done? >> well, you know, we also heard in the campaign, george, him talking about being open to lifting the trade embargo. just wanted to get a better deal than what he said obama got. i do not think that president trump will go forward to rapidly lift all that obama did on cuba. i think it is more likely based on my conversations with his top aides aid aides, it is more likely that he will use the threat of doing
7:11 am
that to try to gain concessions from the cuban government on human rights and religious freedoms. >> they're saying they want release of political prisoners. the question is, how will raul castro and the administration respond? >> you could get into a situation where they dig in, trump needs to save face and lift some of those measures. keep in mind, everything that president obama did, the easing of the trade embargo, travel restrictions, it was all done through executive order. so as president, trump could lift that you will with a stroerk of a pen, but i see no indication that's something he would want to do unless he is goaded into it by the cuban government. >> we'll see, jon karl. thanks very much. now to the wild weather. heavy snow in the mountain states created travel problems for millions over the holiday weekend. and now more dangerous conditions are on the way. abc's alex perez is in chicago where they just saw a lot of rain. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, amy. that's right. snow, rain, icy roads. for those who are hoping to ease into the workweek, mother nature is not cooperating. overnight, wild weather from
7:12 am
coast to coast wreaking havoc as snow, ice, and rain caused treacherous driving conditions for holiday travelers. four reported tornadoes touched down near nebraska. >> big cone. >> huge. >> reporter: the first post-thanksgiving tornadoes here in 40 years. nearly a half foot of snow fell on flagstaff, arizona. causing cars to spin off the road. interstates shut down in nevada coun county, saturday after pileups resulted in dangerous driving conditions. southern california also getting an early dose of the white stuff. for those hoping to avoid the roads, thousands of flights delayed. >> it's a bit annoying. my flights tend to get delayed. >> reporter: tsa screening an estimated 2.5 million passengers nationwide yesterday. >> i came here two hours early. because i know chicago is a pretty busy airport. and as for those storms, they're moving east. they're expected to create more travel problems.
7:13 am
amy? >> all right, alex, and yes. let's get more from rob marciano on that with more on the two storms hitting the country. >> a lot of people are traveling today, amy. this picture from the mountains east of los angeles in through salt lake city. storm number one, storm number two. a very active pattern setting up here. we'll see some travel delays in salt lake city, dallas and memphis as well. this storm has a lot of jet stream energy and juice across the south. a severe weather threat. we haven't said that really here in a couple of months. i-10 through jackson mississippi, and of course, the winter weather. ing loo it a all these alerts. the west just painted with it. it will be dicey travel across parts of the dakotas and the mountains, as well. we're building a beneficial snow pack. that's good. also beneficial rains coming to the east. we'll talk about that in just a few minutes. all right, rob. thank you so much, and speaking of travel, take a look at this. two people at the minneapolis airport were treated for injuries after the catering truck they were riding in, it
7:14 am
struck a barrier and then crashed right there, boom, into a tunnel. remarkably, they were able to climb out of the truck and they were not seriously injured. the tunnel had to be shout down. we're told no flights were affected. and again, unclear what led up to the crash, but incredible they both got out alive. >> you have to wonder what happened. we move to the california manhunt for two fugitives who broke out of jail last week. police now offering a $20,000 reward, warning the men are dangerous and desperate. abc's eva pilgrim here with the latest. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. those men on the loose. the intense search nonstop, running around the clock. this morning, investigators are listening to every call those inmates made while in the county jail, trying to find out who they were talking to before they got out. two inmates on the run after a daring jailbreak in san jose, california. this morning, investigators saying the $20,000 reward is a game-changer. >> that's generating a lot of tips. >> reporter: new information pouring in. rogerio chavez and laron campbell facing a range of
7:15 am
serious charges from burglary to firearms violations. on the run now for four days. only abc news getting a look inside the cell where it happened. >> it's pretty smooth. >> reporter: these are the bars left behind from the window chavez and campbell cut out to make their escape. the pair, part of a group of four inmates in wednesday's late night getaway. >> this is the window they came out of. where the bars are missing. and you can see also, they cut one of the horizontal supports also, and then pushed the window out. >> reporter: tying together a makeshift rope of blankets and bed sheets. repelling down two stories. the other two prisoners, quickly captured by deputies patrolling. chavez and campbell got away. how they cut the bars? a mystery. that window boarded up. this dorm-style cell empty. but the night of the escape, it was full. 20 inmates packed in. >> other people had to know. we believe that they had been cutting for quite a while. >> reporter: while only two got
7:16 am
out, investigators say that none of those still in are talking. and the sheriff telling us she has a really hard time believing that the other 16 guys didn't hear or see a thing. but, something that doesn't surprise her. it's part of the prison culture. no one wants to be a snitch. amy. all right, eva. thanks so much. well, it is cybermonday, and the blockbuster shopping has already begun. over the holiday weekend, more than 154 million shoppers. yeah, they were running. they took advantage of those thanksgiving deals. now more savings are on the way. and abc's rebecca jarvis has the details. cybermonday is more my speed. >> this is the perfect speed for me, too. more than half the shoppers you saw there this weekend shopped online, many from the palm of their hand, and today, you can expect to see deep discounts with free shipping on appliances, clothes, and electronics. after a record-breaking black friday weekend, shoppers already gearing up for a massive cybermonday. this weekend, more than 154
7:17 am
million americans grabbing those wallet-friendly deals, up from 151 million last year. >> we almost didn't go today. but i kind of dragged her out. >> reporter: some shoppers, unruly. this seattle area nike store nearly demolished. others extremely violent. a fight between two customers in reno, nevada, turning deadly. but for the most part, controlled chaos. 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. on black friday, the busiest shopping hour of the entire weekend. >> we do it every year. right? we want to get the best deals. >> reporter: the biggest day so far, friday, with online sales shattering records up 22% from last year, topping $3 million, bringing the two-day tally to more than $5 billion. retailers now turning their attention to cybermonday with deals on appliances like this juicer, $100 off amazon and clothes, baa banana republic and

7:32 am
redding, california. kayna, good morning. >> reporter: yeah, amy, good morning. we're hearing from the woman who called 911 saying she looked terrified. this morning, the hunt is on for alleged kidnappers of a california mother who was held captive for three weeks, who was discovered along this >> chp is advising she is heavily battered, and it is confirmed a kidnapping. >> reporter: authorities say 34-year-old sherri papini was terrified and could only offer a vague description of her chapters. two hispanic women armed with a handgun driving a dark suv. alison spotted her and called police. >> i saw a woman, a woman with long blonde hair by the side of the road.
7:33 am
kind of frantically waving what looked like a shirt. >> reporter: papini told authorities her captors dropped her off, right there behind me, 150 miles from her home, on thanksgiving day. authorities say she was bound with restraints, but was able to flag down a passing driver. >> i figured if she was willing to risk being hit by a car, she must really need help. >> she's chained with -- with a quarter-inch heavy chain and -- on her wrists. >> reporter: investigators analyzing the restraints, along with papini's clothe for evidence. they're checking cameras. they're investigating papini's past, including a previous marriage, and searching her online activity. the county sheriff saying, currently, we have no reason to disbelieve ms. papini's story. she's been assaulted.
7:34 am
now sherri papini was treated at an area hospital and released. her husband immediately by her side. i spoke with the sheriff, and he tells me he plans on interviewing sherri papini again this week, reiterating to me, amy, that if she remembers the slightest detail, it could help break this case. >> thank you, kayna. joining us is brad garrett, a former fbi special agent and veteran felony prosecutor nancy grace. good morning to you both. a remarkable story. i remember seeing this on my phone on thanksgiving and saying, i can't believe this outcome. how unusual is this type of story? >> well, of course, skeptics believe that it's a hoax. but i'm not so sure that that's true. the police are saying -- the sheriff is saying, they have no reason to disbelieve her. they also say that they are investigating her past. here is the rub. here's the fly in the ointment. it's extremely rare for women to
7:35 am
commit a violent crime. that's not just an anecdotal statement. according to the u.s. department of justice, about 75.6% of crimes are committed by men. okay? so to hear of two women committing a violent felony, kidnapping, beating her, restraining her this way, and there's no motive, that's why people are skeptical. i can tell you this. i've seen even stranger scenarios that are true. >> and brad, let me ask you this. sherri papini was found battered. she was found chained. police are looking for those two women. what do you make of the scene that was set? >> first of all, we don't know what role these women played. could they have been involved in the kidnapping? of course. but figuring out their position in this whole thing, did they find her? were they associated with the bad guys that ultimately kidnapped her and then dropped
7:36 am
her off? the real key is the small details she can remember. what was the room like? what did it smell like? was it near a barn? did she hear animals? did she hear traffic? were people on cell phones? she's going to listen for accents. all those little clues combined with social media may find these guys. >> nancy, do you think there are any other avenues investigators should be pursuing right now? >> oh, absolutely. what brad just said sparked my mind. a cell tower dump would be very beneficial right now. in other words, the cell phone tower near the spot where she was taken, very near her home, where they found her earbuds, and her cell phone, strands of her hair in the earbuds. a cell tower dump would give you every cell phone that passed that was turned on at that moment. within that hour. that would be very, very helpful. they're looking at computers.
7:37 am
iphones. what is missing here is any motive on her part. why would she do this? why would she restrain herself and beat herself in a way that made them take her to the hospital? before i'm going to be a skeptic and cynical, i'm kochoosing to believe her right now and be thankful that she is home. >> nancy and brad, thank you. george, what's up next? it's something called thunderstorm asthma. and the weather is sending thousands to the hospital. we'll have the latest on that. and we have the secrets to bigger cybermonday savings. all in two minutes. >> even bigger? wow. mini miracle. hey! hey! ♪ this is for you. did you really? didn't have too! ♪ getting the gift you almost kept for yourself, now that's a holiday mini miracle. and it is easy to create your own at walgreens,

and we're back with the big board. breaking down more of today's top stories. we welcome bill nye. he is right here at the table. you're coming right up. we're starting with the terrifying accident with cirque du soleil on sunday. it put olympian lisa skinner in the hospital. let's talk to dan abrams about that. this is the latest in a string
7:40 am
of accidents. one performer actually died in 2013, and "the wall street journal" saying this is one of the most dangerous professions out there. >> first of all, good news. lisa skinner, according to reports from cirque du soleil, is now in good condition. but in terms of what can be done more broadly -- look. there's a governmental agency, called osha, that deals with safety in the work place. they've monitored cirque du soleil. they've fined them in the past. but on the whole, cirque du soleil does a pretty thorough job when it comes to safety and security. it's part of what they do every day in what is a dangerous job. the biggest problem i think for the workers, is if they're injured, when they're injured, they're not getting worker's comp. that wasn't designed for cirque du soleil. by taking worker's comp, you typically waive your right to sue for negligence. the most dangerous job in
7:41 am
america? logging. 1 in 1,000 people die on the job. >> wow. you mentioned finances. from a financial perspective, how protected are cirque performers financially? what are their legal options versus say a professional athlete? >> yeah. there are a lot of comparisons made to professional athletes. the problem is that the professional athletes are unionized. they're not unionized. cirque du soleil, a contract of a year at most two years. they don't have the right or benefits that a professional athlete would have if and when they're injured. remember that the the majority of the injuries, when it comes to cirque du soleil are not the ones we see typically. they're much more minor injuries. >> dan, thank you so much. we appreciate it. moving on now to an extremely bizarre and dangerous medical condition that left six
7:42 am
people dead 37 sent 8,500 others to hospitals throughout australia. it's known as thunderstorm asthma. triggered by a rare weather phenomenon. i have never heard of this before. tell us what this is. >> you have rye grass with a lot of pollen. pollen is very sharp, spiky pollen. and so it's very high winds, and sometimes, when it gets moist, these pollen grains will explode or burst, and when the pollen grains get down to less than a micron. very small -- >> really small. >> gets in your lungs. pieces of spiky pollen. you're allergic. you get it. that's speculated here. australia -- australia was founded by a relatively few european population. if your ancestors had this genetic predisposition of getting asthma, and then you have thousands of -- or millions of people living there, that same gene would be passed on. that's very reasonable to me.

captured on video. vehicles on the wrong side of the road speeding. while wrong-way crashes make up only 3% of accidents, one study says they are 17 times more deadly, between 30,400 deaths a year. nearly 60% of the accidents involve drivers who have been drinking. what can you do? >> stay out of the fast lane. stay in the middle lanes or the right lanes if you can. if it's a two-way highway, be alert. look ahead. >> reporter: there are also calls to change the way roads are designed. often onramps and offramps are next to each other, which can lead to mistakes. some experts say lower the do not enter signs, make them bigger. and put another set farther up the exit lane. and not surprising, as we possibly add rumble strips that a driver gets the cue they're going the wrong way. and not surprising, as we mentioned, alcohol always a factor. celebrations lead to more of these accidents. some good tips from the police officer, when you're on the

strangled on a trail she took nearly every day. vanessa marcotte, murdered on a path behind her mother's house. and ali brueger, shot and killed in broad daylight. all three women simply out on a jog when they were attacked. >> it's just you. you don't have any protection. >> reporter: this woman is the founder of tough cookies. a jogging group. they were founded on theory that on the trails and roads, there is safety in numbers. >> no one is going to attempt anything when you have a group. you can relax and enjoy your run. focus on the workout. not have to be constantly on the lookout. >> reporter: what happens if you can't run with a partner? we talked to a safety expert who gave us tips on how to protect yourself on the path. first, ditch the headphones. >> the earlier that i can hear somebody approaching me, or that i can see somebody approaching me, then i can respond in a way that's going to give me a better chance at getting away to someplace safe. >> reporter: avoid baggy clothes and pony tails. >> opt for form-fitting clothes
8:26 am
that's form fitting and doesn't have a hood. and opt for hair in a side-braid or a low pony tail or tucked up and underneath your cap. makes it more difficult for somebody to grab hold of you. and drag you into the bushes or take you down to the ground. >> reporter: and finally, be prepared to fight back. >> taking even one self-defense class can seriously increase your safety. you learn how to be better prepared to pay attention to your surroundings and listen to your gut. you also learn how to fight back effectively in a worst case scenario. >> reporter: last tip, tell someone where you are running and when they should expect you back, george. >> okay. a lot of good advice right there. you have to pay attention to that advice. >> i certainly do. because i do like to run by myself. coming up, star of "rogue one" felicity jones here live. she is going to talk all about it.

8:43 am
did it strike close to home for you? >> definitely. >> did you ever have someone shut the door on you like that, basically? >> i have had a variety of experiences in that way. throughout the movie, you can see. there's a lot of people who don't look up from their paper when you come into read. it's tough. >> the movie is so beautiful. i brought my daughters. i have to say, i'm not overselling this. this is the best movie i saw all year. i laughed, i cried, my heart was warmed. it mad to be such an incredible experience. you have done broadway. this is not your first time singing in front of millions. but, what was it like -- i mean, look at that. the dancing, the singing. you were a triple-threat in this movie. >> oh, thanks. >> you're welcome.
