6:03 am

6:04 am
and i'm going to win. >> reporter: but now, clinton may have new fodder. after the revolution the al qaeda affiliate is using donald trump's words in a terror recruitment video. >> donald trump is calling for a shut down of muslims entering the united states. until our country's representatives can figure out what [ bleep ] is going on. >> reporter: clinton recently warned trump's statements about the muslims would be used by the militants. >> he is becoming isis' best recruiter. >> reporter: trump defending himself in an interview that will air later today. >> other people have called me and say, you have guts to bring it up because, trfrankly, it's true. >> reporter: marco rubio and ted cruz, rising in the polls, are ramping up their attacks on each other, before a crowd of thousands in south carolina on saturday.

6:06 am
>> we've seen over the past few months how it plays out. when donald trump attacks someone, they hit back. it plays better for donald trump than the person hitting back. isn't it a better scenario for the clintons if they decided to hit back? >> the question is how you hit back. trump has been very clever in when he goes after somebody. he finds what he perceives to be their softest spot. what's interesting about going after bill clinton in this case and going after the personal life is this, while politically, doing this has never hurt hillary clinton, if anything, it's backfired, boomeranged and helped her. but there's no topic hillary likes to talk about less than her husband's past marital infidelity. trump likes to make his opponents feel uncomfortable and that's when they make mistakes. how will hillary handle this
6:07 am
over time? does trump sustain the attacks and, if he does, how will she handle it? that's hurt previous people who tried to fight back against trump. they -- what was the old commercial, never let them see you sweat. jeb bush showed he sweat. >> al shabaab, the group linked to al qaeda, featuring donald trump in a recruitment video. donald trump saying it takes a lot of guts to bring up a ban on all muslims to this country. we have not seen any sort of attack that's had a measurable impact on his poll numbers. any reason to think it's going to be different this time around? >> unlikely. i asked trump this actual scenario. what would happen? i asked him on this show. what would happen if he saw his words being used in a recruitment video? would it make him change his words? he said, no. he was emphatic this is what it was going to take. you have to take the fight to them. you have to speak truth to
6:08 am
power, that sort of thing. it's only going to have an impact if his opponents decide to bring it up and reinforce it and do it. i suspect they won't. >> chuck, back in washington, president obama has made it clear, we know he's meeting with loretta lynch tomorrow to talk about pushing through gun control measures. even if he does accomplish some of these things in his fire year, are these the executive actions that could be overturned with a new administration? >> it's not overturned, i question whether he can implement them. take the one thing he's probably going to do, which is close the so-called gun loophole. you need an atf, government regulators, to enforce this law. guess who funds that agency? congress. this congress isn't going to give the extra money that's going to be necessary to enforce the president's executive action. not only do i believe that these are likely not to last beyond him, i don't know if what he
6:09 am
announces can even be enforced now, simply because they don't have the money and resources to enforce it. >> chuck todd, always good to have you with us. thanks. >> you got it. >> we'll see you in a bit on "meet the press" with more on the trump-clinton showdown. deadly flooding in the midwest. the swollen mississippi river was surging downstream at ten times the speed of the niagara falls, and the worst may be yet to come people south of st. louis. that's where miguel almaguer is. >> overnight, the president declared this area a federal disaster area, freeing up federal funds to clear this area up better. there was good news and bad news today. the good news, the flooding surge waters here have begun to reseed. the mississippi river and mar rac -- merrimack, was 30 feet above
6:10 am
flood stage. the cleanup here, more than 150 homes in the arnold area alone, are believed to be completely destroyed, which is the bad news. we were in the community yesterday. it'll take months, if not longer, to rebuild in that community alone. as you mentioned, craig, all this surging water is headed straight downstream. it is continuing to affect some communities along the way, and it will likely hit memphis in the next couple of days, where there, they are bracing for what could be potential side effects of localized flooding. >> miguel, thank you. there is some good news for you powerball ticketholders just waking up. you have a chance at another jackpot. we're putting a positive spin on this. no grand prize winner won last night's drawing, so you have a chance to win what promises to become one of the biggest jackpots in powerball history. kerry sanders is in florida. do you have your next ticket yet? >> good morning.
6:11 am
first, this is what a winning ticket would have looked like. those are the numbers. if only i had purchased this ticket at winn-dixie last night instead of this morning. there have been lines and there will be more lines. the hype of all of this will continue. this powerball is played in some of the states, easier for me to list the states it's not played in, and that's alabama, alaska, hawaii, mississippi, nevada and utah. if you're going to play, the chances of you winning, 1 in 292 million. that's whether you buy one ticket, whether you spend $10 on tickets or $20 on tickets. finally, as i buy a ticket here, there you go, consider this, this is going to grow to $400 million. if somebody or a group of people win it, it will be the sixth largest jackpot for the powerball ever. the highest was $590.5 million, a tremendous amount of money.
6:12 am
guys, here's the plan, if these numbers hit, we'll split it three ways. >> you heard that. >> three? >> the ladies up here with us, kerry, what about a five way split? >> we can all get a private jet somewhere. >> and the crew is wondering, what about 30 way. >> no, no. >> we'll work out the details, kerry. good luck and god speed. >> we have proof here. let's get to sheinelle now, following the violence in iran. >> protesters are taking to the streets after an execution of a cleric. demonstrators in tehran attacked the embassy, setting the structure on fire. we're joined for the latest. good morning. >> good morning, sheinelle. that's right. hard line protesters raided the
6:13 am
saudi embassy in tehran last night, angry over the execution of prominent shia cleric. they threw molotov cocktails at the building. flames and smoke could be seen billowing from the windows. protesters last night also r ransacked a city in the northeast of iran. the establishment was quick today to condemn the execution. the supreme leader, the highest authority in the land, said saudi arabia will face revenge for the execution. calling his execution a huge crime and a wrong deed. the country's powerful revolutionary guard vowed reven revenge. iran's president, in a more balanced statement, said the execution violates human rights and islamic values. but the damage to the saudi embassy was by no means
6:14 am
justifiable. in a statement, he said he ordered the interior minister to identify the attackers and bring them to justice, to put an end to these abominations and have the security of the nation. there's no love lost between iran and saudi arabia, and this latest episode is going to fan the flames further. more protesters today in iran, but it's unlikely they'll get out of hand. we have to see how this plays out amongst a lot of tension. in oregon, protesting militia members took over a wildlife building. they're protesters the return to prison of two ranchers. they were convicted of arson, said to be covering up poaching. police in pennsylvania are

calling the death of a 5-year-old autistic boy who vanished new year's eve a tragic accident. on saturday, he was found floating in a canal not far from where he disappeared. an autopsy is set for tomorrow. in massachusetts, police discovered a trunk full of weapons outside of gillette stadium. the weapons were in the car of a connecticut man and found near the stadium in an off site lot for employees. they were discovered before the hockey match between the bruins and the canadiens. police arrested a 48-year-old on weapons charges but say there was no threat to anyone attending the game. in buffalo, you could call their stadium a snow bowl. more than a foot of snow fell on the stands. fans answered the call, showing up with shovels to dig out the home team. the forecast calls for more snow before today's a kickoff. finally, it was all happening at the zoo on the last day of the
