7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking overnight, trump's tax bombshell. a "new york times" report showing a nearly billion-dollar deduction. so large, it could have legally allowed donald trump to not pay income tax for up to 18 years. >> it must be something really importan he's trying to hide. >> trump's campaign responding this morning. >> gloves off. trump targeting hillary clinton on all fronts from her health to her husband. >> she can actually be crazy. she can't make it 15 feet to her car. i don't even think she is loyal to bill, if you want to know the truth. >> will these new attacks distract voters from his new political storm? the other breaking news story this morning. matthew's might. ready to dump feet of rain on
7:01 am
them in the bull's-eye. the rush to protect property and stock up on supplies. rob is tracking this incredibly dangerous storm. will it hit the u.s.? and a fond farewell. the duke and duchess of cambridge wrapping up their canadian tour. the couple shows they are in shipshape. prince george and princess charlotte finally mastering the royal wave, but little george apparently in no rush to head home. >> announcer: live from abc news in new york, this is "good morning america." good morning, everybody. paula's off. great to have cecilia vega off the campaign trail and with us at the desk. we're going to start here in fact with the breaking news at the race for the white house. donald trump makes headlines on several fronts. >> first, this, a big headline in "the new york times" this morning, the paper has obtained
7:02 am
it shows a loss of $916 million. that is large enough, the paper says, that trump may not have had to pay federal income taxes in nearly two decades. >> and the other trump story this morning, an overnight speech in which he unleashed on hillary clinton. in unusually scathing terms by trumpian standards, going to say she is not loyal to her husband. >> we have it all covered this morning. we will be talking to the reporters who broke the big tax story and george is standing by with his analysis. we begin here with abc's mary bruce in washington this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, the clinton campaign is calling this a bombshell. donald trump's taxes and his refusal to release them has been a central issue in the campaign. now, for the first time we get a look at some of his actual returns and how he could have transformed red ink into a huge benefit.
7:03 am
could have avoided pay iing federal income taxes for years. fragments of state records sent anonymously to "the times" claim that in 1995 donald trump declared a $916 million loss. the loss of three casinos, his airline business and the new york plaza hotel. the deduction so large, it could have allowed trump to legally avoid paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years. trum didn't deny it on last week's debate stage. >> it shows he didn't pay income tax. >> that makes me smart. >> reporter: and he isn't denying it now. his campaign saying in a statement mr. trump is a highly skilled businessman who has a responsibility to his business, his family, and employees to pay no more tax than legally required. >> i tell you what, if not paying taxes makes him smart, what does it make the rest of us? >> reporter: breaking with precedent, trump has repeatedly refused to release his tax returns until a routine audit is complete.
7:04 am
there's no rush. i'm supposed to rush like crazy? >> reporter: until he does hillary is hammering him for hiding his dealings. >> it's probably true he hasn't paid a penny in federal taxes to actually support our military or our vets or our schools. >> reporter: now this morning the clinton campaign is blasting trump saying "the times" report shows he avoided paying taxes while working americans paid theirs. they say it's all the more reason why he should release his full returns. dan. >> mary, thank you. joining us now are the two "new york times" reporters who broke the story. russ buettner and megan twohey. megan, let me start with you. who sent the documents? do you have any idea? >> that remains a mystery. a week ago friday, my colleague sue craig went to her mailbox and a week ago friday, there was an envelope typed to her, that came from -- was said to have
7:05 am
tax return records for donald trump. >> how do you know these returns are legit? >> there's a reason -- she received those and we published our story last night. so there was a lot of work that went in between her receiving them and us publishing the story. and the big breakthrough came midweek when our colleague david barstow traveled to florida and actually met with trump's accountant, a man whose signature was on one of the forms we received and prepared his taxes in 1995 and can confirm that, yes, in fact, the records are legitimate. >> russ, trump's attorney is threatening to sue here because he says trump did not authorize the disclosure. does the attorney have a case? >> not as far as our attorneys
7:06 am
no, you commit a crime, if you steal a document like that but opening your mailbox is not a crime. >> trump has said when confronted with the possibility that he may not have paid federal income taxes, that makes him smart. from the perspective of a businessman, does he have a case there? >> it's open to judgment. it's a line of tax avoidance that is open to people in partnerships and he would be smart if he had access to do it. i think people who -- a paychecks a portion of them go to the federal every week whether they do anything or not might view that differently. >> russ, thank you. megan, thank you. appreciate you coming in this morning. over to you. >> just as the tax story was about to break overnight, donald trump was on stage unleashing a new round of attacks on hillary clinton. he is targeting everything from her health to her marriage. abc's devin dwyer from washington with more. devin, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump had been hinting about more aggressive attacking on mrs. clinton on her character, and he did, even questioning her fidelity to her husband.
7:07 am
donald trump's campaign against hillary clinton got even more personal. >> she could be crazy. she could actually be crazy. >> reporter: with attack after attack. >> she's an incompetent woman. i have seen it. she's an incompetent woman. >> reporter: trump even going after clinton's marriage, saying without evidence clinton is unfaithful to her husband. >> i don't even think she's loyal to bill if you want to know the truth. and really, folks, why should she be, right? why should be? >> reporter: trump stirring up a political storm as he bragged about arriving in his helicopter in the middle of one. >> i said are you crazy? land the helicopter. >> reporter: and mocking clinton for her recent bout of pneumonia and impersonating her stumble on 9/11. >> she can't make it 15 feet to her car. give me a break. give me a break. >> reporter: still battered by his reviews of his first debate, trump's doubling down on his blame of the mike.
7:08 am
crowd watching his performance on stage is like a night at the movies. >> right now, you say, let's go to a movie after trump. but you won't do that. because you will so high and so excited that no movie is going to satisfy you. >> reporter: the clinton campaign responded to his barrage of attacks overnight, spokesman fallon saying trump's speech was particularly unhinged, that trump was quote sweating the looming ew on his taxes. dan and cecilia? >> for more of all of this, let's going in george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. >> good morning, guys. >> as you know there is an enormous amount of pressure on trump to release his taxes. will this story in "the new york times" force his hand perhaps? >> i think it all but guarantees why he won't. the loss of $918 million that he could write off for up to 18 years. here's what we already know
7:09 am
the tax returns had been released in the late '70s showed he paid no federal income taxes. records from two years in the 1990s, showed he paid no income taxes and now the document suggests he could have gone for up to 18 years on the first $916 million in income. which does at least point to trump's historical resistance to release the tax returns. he seems to believe that information in them is quite damaging. and note in that statement he put out last night, it did not taxes. >> neither confirmed nor denied. basically, right? also this attack unleashing on hillary clinton. even now questioning her own fidelity in her marriage? what's going on? is this a sign? is he basically laying out the ground work for the debate to come? >> well, donald trump is being donald trump right there. one of his advisers, rudy giuliani said he should get tougher in the next debate. mr. giuliani is going to be on "this week" later as well.
7:10 am
question on her marriage going to get any voters he doesn't already have? and it's especially tough in a town hall meeting kind of debate that is coming up next sunday, as you know, is co-moderated by martha raddatz, you will get questions from actual voters. if you don't answer the questions in that kind of forum and just go on the attack, it could turn voters off. >> you have a poll that shows just how well hillary clinton did in the last debate what is her strategy going in to the next one? >> i think the clinton team believes they should do in the next debate exactly what they did in the last one. answer the questions as best they can. bait trump when they can. going back to my earlier point. in these kind of town hall style debates, the most important thing for any candidate to do is
7:11 am
with the voters on stage asking questions. >> and not check your watch. >> good idea. george h.w. bush. 1992. >> 37 day to go but who is counting? >> spoken like a campaigner. >> 37 days go by pretty quickly. >> yeah. >> and a reminder that george has a big show coming up later this morning on "this week." including bernie sanders and former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. the next presidential debate is seven days away. it will air live here on abc. of course our own martha raddatz is co-moderating that. and first up, the vice presidential candidates face off this tuesday. and george will be anchoring the team coverage. our team will be there live at 9:00 eastern on abc. a very busy week to come. >> no sleep for george or cecilia for a month. we will move on to the other breaking story this morning, it's hurricane matthew barreling through the atlantic. rob is tracking it all and the question whether it will hit us. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, dan. matthew really has not moved much in the last 24 hours.

7:13 am
take a look at this. matthew the menace. it is menacing indeed. the people here of jamaica understand just how powerful this storm can be. they have been preparing here several days now. they tell me about the other storm that hit some decades ago and that was a category 3. they remember how powerful that was. the damage that did. they know this storm is more powerful. it's already killed a 16-year-old on the island of st. vincent. very, very powerful. people here in jamaica are preparing and of course as rob said, we are going to start feeling the wind and rain very soon. >> gio benitez in the bull's-eye of the storm. thank you and stay safe. there is a lot of other news this morning. and for that as always we kick it over to ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> dr. ron claiborne. >> that's right. >> sorry. >> good morning to you, dan and

"pop news" is next. i'm a smoker for life." i wanted to be a non-smoker and i did it thanks to chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. this is for real. i'm a non-smoker.
