good morning. i'm trevor ault. >> i'm mona kosar abdi. janai and kenneth are both off. here are some of the top headlines we're following this morning on "world news now." public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into president trump begin on wednesday. as lawmakers squabble about who should testify, the top u.s. diplomat in ukraine, william taylor, is first on the list to take questions. after changing his legal residence to florida, president trump is back in new york to attend the city's veterans day parade. he's expected to speak at the opening ceremony before the parade makes its way up fifth avenue. at least one man was shot by police in hong kong as protesters disrupted this morning's commute. roads and rail lines were blocked. it's the third time in six weeks police have shot a demonstrator. this week your instagram likes disappear as the platform is hiding those numbers on u.s. accounts in what it says is an effort to become the safest
place on the internet. those are some of our top stories on this monday, november 11th. you're watching the safest place on television at this hour of the night. >> trevor is currently devastated right now. >> unfortunately. but we'll behave ourselves. we're going to begin this half hour with the latest twist in the race for the white house. democrats bracing for the likelihood of a new competitor with some pretty deep pockets. >> former new york mayor michael bloomberg appears poised to make a late entrance into the crowded field armed with his $50 billion fortune. abc's rachel scott has reaction from the campaign trail. >> reporter: with the first vote less than 90 days away the democratic candidates for president are bracing for a shakeup. billionaire michael bloomberg setting the stage to jump in the race. and the national early
front-runner, former vice president joe biden, saying, bring it on. >> i have no problems with him getting in the race. and in terms of he's running because of me? last polls i looked at, i'm pretty far ahead. >> reporter: sources close to bloomberg say he's worried that the current field of candidates won't be able to beat donald trump, and he thinks he can. but progressives are criticizing the former new york city mayor for relying on his immense personal wealth to find a path to the nomination. >> i think that our elections should not be something that are bought by billionaires. >> sorry. you ain't going to buy this election. >> reporter: this weekend, vermont senator bernie sanders on a multi-stop swing through iowa. >> hello, iowa! >> reporter: campaigning for the first time with congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez, a key endorsement for his campaign. i sat down with the two of them and asked ocasio-cortez why she's supporting sanders over senator elizabeth warren. >> it's about a personal story and a personal history. and i think the senator's
history and commitment is unique. >> reporter: sanders unleashed on the bloomberg campaign plan to skip out on the earliest voting states, iowa, new hampshire, south carolina, and nevada. >> when you're worth $50 billion, i guess you don't have to have town meetings, you don't have to talk to ordinary people. what you do is take out i guess a couple of billion dollars and buy the state of california. >> reporter: an unconventional strategy for mayor bloomberg, but he clearly understands those key early voting states only make up a fraction of the delegates he would need to clinch the party's nomination. he also knows the rest of the democratic field has a head start there, so if he does get into this race, his advisers say they are confident he can win in the states that vote on super tuesday and beyond. rachel scott, abc news, washington. former u.n. ambassador nikki haley is alleging disloyalty among senior aides who worked for president trump, claiming
they tried to undermine him and enlist her to oppose some of his policies. >> in her new medical lawyer, haley says former secretary of state rex tillerson and former chief of staff john kelly told her they resisted the president because they were trying to save the country, and she claims tillerson said people would die if trump was unchecked. >> haley said they should have gone to the president with their concerns and quit if they didn't like what he was doing. >> big accusations. you can forget the calendar, because winter has already somehow arrived in the midwest. >> it sure did. this is a live look at detroit where it is snowing. and there's snow overnight from wyoming across to new york state and into the south. >> north dakota's going to be digging out this morning after as much as 8 inches of snow fell. so let's get the complete forecast from accuweather's adam del rosso. adam, good morning. >> trevor, mona, good morning. another arctic blast dropping southward, bringing some very cold air to the central u.s. but also some snow and ice as far south as texas and oklahoma. heaviest snowfall amounts around
the great lakes where we've got that lake-effect snow going as well. the colder air moving over the t of snowfall. this colder air going to continue to spread into the northeast by the time we head into the middle of this workweek. high temperatures today across the dakotas into minnesota only in the teens and drop southward for our tuesday. mid 20s for st. louis and chicago by wednesday, even reaching the southeast with highs only in the 50s in places like new orleans. trevor, mona? >> all right, adam, thank you. bolivia's president has resigned after protests over the recent elections. the country has been racked by weeks of deadly protests over alleged fraud. evo morales had offered to hold new elections but quit after the country's military chief called on him to step down. large crowds formed in the capital to relevant great his resignation. the vice president and senate president also resigned. today is veterans day when the nation formally thanks those who have served in the armed forces.president trump is here
york where he will deliver remarks at the city's veterans day parade. there will be commemorations and observances from coast to coast. and today marks the start of a new campaign by the u.s. army. it's aimed at filling its ranks. abc's brad mielke has details. brad? >> yeah, as we honor veterans today, the inevitable question is, where will the armed forces find their next generation of service members? this morning the u.s. army is announcing a new ad campaign, and this is a lot different from the ones you grew up with. think about it, army ads 15 years ago were all about combat. it was right after september 11th. a high school senior graduating next year wasn't alive during september 11th. which is why the army is blitzing this new message on social media. abc's louis martinez covers the movie. the slogan is "who's your warrior?" the message is less about fire r.wer ut >> what they're highlighting is nontraditional military roles. one of the people they're
highlighting is a cyber warrior, a u.s. army captain who in cybe. things that are not traditional in the u.s. army, they're highlighting them in these campaigns. typically we've seen over the last couple of years they've been focusing on combat roles. they're still going to be talking about that, but now they're looking to see these nontraditional roles. they want to surprise their audience as they're thumbing through on their smartphones they want to see, oh, look, a dna specialist. here's somebody who works in cyber. oh wait, they're army soldiers? >> one of the things i thought was interesting, louis said in previous generations you had a world war ii veteran in your neighborhood. you had a vietnam veteran in your family. those people were really instrumental in convincing young people to serve. they were the original influencers. now the army is turning to online influencers instead. we'll have a lot more on "start here" later this morning. listen on apple podcasts or your favorite podcasting app. mona, trevor? >> thank you, brad. get ready for something rare in the skies today. we're not talking about snow. >> no, that is rare also.planet between the earth and the sun.
the event's called a transit. it's scheduled to start at 7:35 eastern this morning. it will last about 5 1/2 hours. scientists say mercury will be visible as a tiny pinprick moving across the sun's surface. the next transit won't happen for 13 years. that's why you need to find the sun and stare right down the barrel at it. >> i was just going to say. so you have to stare at the sun in order to see this. >> i don't know what the procedure is. >> doesn't sound safe. >> supposedly mercury is in retrograde. >> yes. >> what does that mean? >> you know. >> i don't know. >> it means whenever you want to engage in some messy activity like texting your ex, or, you know, all the stuff that you did this weekend. >> mercury's in retrograde? >> don't quote me on that one. >> i've been in retrograde for years, then, if that's the case. >> all right, well. coming up, gadgets for your key chains. plus the world war ii mystery finally cleared up after 75 years. the missing submarine last seen in 1944 that has just now been
we are back with a video of a truck in england setting off a chain reaction crash. the 65-year-old truck driver was just sentenced to 18 months in prison for causing that wreck. police say it could have been avoided if he had been paying attention. a discovery off the coast of japan has solved a world war ii mystery. >> a team of explorers has just found a submarine that went down in battle and wasn't seen until now. here's abc's tom llamas. >> reporter: 1,400 feet below the surface off the coast of japan, a team of ocean explorers just discovered the resting place of 80 american sailors. this is the first time the "uss grayback" has been seen in 75 years. two of the people that first learned the news, relatives of those americans who went down with the submarine. >> we haven't broadcast this, and we wanted to be the first
ones to tell you. this is the "grayback." >> oh my god. >> we wanted to do this in person. all right? this is where your uncles are. >> reporter: gloria herney, who lost her uncle raymond parks, electrician's mate first class. kathy taylor. she lost her uncle and godfather, john patrick king. an electrician's mate third class. the "uss grayback," a world war ii sub, credited with sinking 14 enemy ships. it set out from pearl harbor in 1944 to patrol the seas south of japan never to return again. >> i committed from the very beginning, when i was a little girl, that i was going to find him or follow him or keep his memory alive to whatever i could do. >> reporter: we met kathy and gloria at the carnegie science center in pittsburgh. >> there's a book i read and it said, these ships are known only to god. but now we know where the "grayback" is.
>> reporter: the "grayback," you can even see the plaque intact after all these years, discovered the south of okinawa. tim taylor and wife christine denison discovered it as part of their "lost 52" project. these two explorers have now found five of the 52 lost u.s. subs during world war ii. >> with the technology we're using and the ability to cover large swaths of ground, we're looking at potential to find several more. >> reporter: that cutting-edge technology includes submersibles that can reach the ocean floor. automated to help create 3d renderings of the sub, providing clues of its final moments. >> it's very vital that we remember them and that they feel that they haven't been forgotten, that their sacrifice wasn't in vain. >> reporter: a tribute to those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. for the families, the discovery is a type of small remedy for all those years of pain. >> he's come back. >> he's come back, yes. >> thank you very much. >> you're entirely welcome.
>> just in time for veterans day. private explorers found the "uss grayback" beneath 1,400 feet of water after realizing a mistranslated japanese war record had pointed searchers in the wrong direction. >> one digit all that time, and that was the difference, pretty incredible story. coming up, the hot new gadgets for your key chain. >> so i jumped into the front seat with our giz wiz for this one. that's a real car. you can see me, i'm seriously driving it.

congress and the country should hear from. >> president trump's accused of using military aid as leverage to get ukraine to investigate joe biden and his son. public hearings will open wednesday with testimony from william taylor, the u.s. diplomat in ukraine who said it was crazy to withhold security assistance to help with a political campaign. abc's david wright has more. >> reporter: with the impeachment inquiry about to enter a new public phase, the battle lines are drawn over who should testify. >> they're having people i never even heard of some of these people, i don't know who they are. by the way, it's all third hand knowledge. >> reporter: that's not true. the committee has heard from several witnesses who were on that july phone call in which president trump asked ukraine to investigate the bidens. as it stands, the first witness scheduled to appear is america's top diplomat in ukraine, william taylor. behind closed doors taylor has already testified it was his clear understanding there was a quid pro quo, $400 million in u.s. military aid contingent on ukraine announcing a corruption
investigation of president trump's political rivals, an arrangement taylor called crazy. >> this is a very strong case of bribery. >> reporter: republicans for their part want to hear from hunter biden and the anonymous whistle-blower who first sounded the alarm that resulted in the impeachment inquiry. >> they don't call the whistle-blower in the house this thing is dead on arrival in the senate. >> reporter: but the chair of the house intelligence committee said calling the whistle-blower would only place their personal safety at grave risk. adam schiff also appeared to reject calling hunter biden, warning that the impeachment inquiry should not be a vehicle to carry out the same sham investigations that president trump pressed ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit. >> we want to stay focused on the ukraine call. and having hunter biden come in is unrelated to the ukraine
call. >> reporter: here at trump tower in new york, a heavy security presence. the president is overnighting here before attending the veterans day parade in new york city on monday. david wright, abc news, new york. >> our thanks to david. as this is happening, former u.n. ambassador nikki haley is accusing two former cabinet members of undermining president trump and trying to get her to do the same. >> in her new memoir haley claims former secretary of state rex tillerson and former white house chief of staff john kelly confided in her they resisted some of the president's policies in an effort to save the country because the president didn't know what he was doing. >> she said tillerson told her people would die if trump was unchecked. she said she refused her attempt to recruit her to go along with them. >> you memorialized that conversation, it definitely happened? >> it absolutely happened. and instead of saying that to me, they should have been saying that to the president. not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan. it should have been, go tell the president what your differences
are and quit if you don't like what he's doing. but to undermine a president is really a very dangerous thing. and it goes against the constitution, and it goes against what the american people want. and it was offensive. >> now so far no response from tillerson but kelly told "the washington post" if providing the president with the best and most open, legal, and ethical staffing advice from across the government so he could make an informed decision is working against trump, then guilty as charged. the fbi has been invited by authorities in mexico to join the investigation into the deadly ambush of american families. that attack last monda blamed on a mexican drug card tell left nine women and children dead. we're hearing exclusively from a man who lost his wife and two of his kids in that violence. david langford says his 13-year-old son devin is a hero because after the shootings, he hid his siblings and walked 14 miles to get help. langford says now he's leaving
mexico with the rest of his family. >> not only have i lost a wife and two children -- but i'm having to move the rest of my family with really no place to go at this point. i believe in forgiveness, but i also believe in justice. forgiveness doesn't rob justice. justice -- you don't get justice too much in mexico. >> eight children, some of them infants, survived that attack. we'll have a full interview with david langford in our next half hour and you can hear from his hero son later this morning on "gma." the search is on for a former marine wanted in connection with the murder of a man in southwest virginia. authorities say michael alexander brown, you see him on your screen, shot and killed a man who's lived with brown's mother. he's believed to be armed with a high-powered rifle and may have access to other weapons. brown was last seen on sto surveillama onat we're just from the 100th annual veterans day parade. it's going to be stepping off here in new york city.
this is a live picture from fifth avenue. a little quiet right now, will not be that way in a few hours. president trump's will be opening the ceremonies honoring all who have served in the military. he'll also be laying a wreath at the eternal light memorial in manhattan's madison square park. one of the vets being honored is as old as the celebration itself. >> lucian baskin turned 100 in september, but until recently most of his family didn't know he took part in one of the most critical events in world war ii. he was part of one of the allied personnel who took part in the d-day invasion in normandy, france. he says the battle was just something he didn't talk about. >> blessed to be here. i really do. that was rough days. but it's bad to see people falling all around you and having to step over dead people. that's kind of rough and hard to get used to.
>> mr. baskin is among the fewer than 400,000 world war ii veterans that are still alive. 16 million people served in that war. now this isn't surprising because for the 75th anniversary of the d-day invasion this summer i interviewed a lot of world war ii veterans and a lot of them are very humble, they don't like to talk about it just because they know friends that were lost and all the lives that were lost during that period. >> that seems insane to me, how do you not talk about it? obviously because they're great men and women is the answer. but i feel like if i was within 100 miles of it, i would talk about nothing else. >> yeah, that one time i was in world war ii, this happened. >> i was technically in asia but it was close enough. yeah. kudos to them, veterans day, we're so grateful. coming up, the big moments from the people's choice awards. first the jewelry store owner who foiled a bunch of smash and grab robbers. the surprise that they never saw coming. ushe
