>> reporter: but he didn't mention donald trump by name, or trump's tactic of dredging up the former president's past sex scandals. >> and the husband's one of the great abusers of the world? give me a break. >> reporter: so, today, i asked about trump. donald trump says your past is fair game. i've got to ask you, you keep coming up on the trail with him, is it fair game? a long pause, and then an answer. >> the republicans have to decide who they want to nominate. i'm trying to tell -- now, the democrats, and the country, why i think hillary would be the best president. and i think there's always attempts to take the election away from the people. >> reporter: trump today, not backing down. >> i think that, you know, hillary was an enabler and a lot of things that happened that were, you know, obviously very seedy, i mean, he was impeached, for heaven's sake. >> reporter: but 15 years after leaving office, bill clinton's popularity numbers are sky high, much higher than his wife's.
weapon, especially in new hampshire, where both clintons have enjoyed political comebacks. >> i listened to you, and in the process, i found my own voice. >> reporter: this year, new the only state where clinton trails vermont senator bernie sanders and where she needs that than ever. >> and cecilia vega live from new hampshire tonight. and you reported there that the campaign is very happy where the former president stands with his own popularity. so, how much more of president clinton on his own will we see out there? >> reporter: well, david, the former president just wrapped an event here in new hampshire and it was a packed house. and that is exactly what hillary clinton's campaign wants to see. an aide to the former president telling me -- if you can hear me, they're still wrapping up here -- an aide to the former president telling me today, that we can expect to see a lot more of bill clinton out on the campaign trail over the next few weeks.
>> folding up the chairs right behind you. how quickly they all move on there. cecilia vega tonight, thank you. president clinton being asked about donald trump, and tonight, trump is being asked about a piece of video shown in his first political ad out today. in it, talking about building a wall on the mexican border, and in the ad, you can see people running for the border. but it turns out that piece of video is not here in the u.s. they're the same images from a video posted in 2014 of migrants in morocco. tonight, how does the trump campaign explain this? abc's tom llamas on the trail, as well. >> i'm donald trump, and i approve this message. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump out with his first tv ad, and that striking image of people scrambling like ants across a mountainous border. >> and he'll stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that mexico will pay for. >> reporter: it turns out, that video is not from our southern border at all. it's from 5,000 miles away in morocco. tonight, the trump campaign
morocco images on purpose, quote, "to demonstrate the severe impact of an open border and the very real threat americans face." but watchdog website politifact, which first reported the story, gives the ad a "pants on fire" rating on its truth scale. it was trump's immigration crackdown that first rocketed him into the lead. >> and, you know, we're going to build a wall. we're going to have a real border. and mexico is going to pay for the wall. and they'll say, thank you, thank you very much. >> reporter: now, his new ad highlights the latest trump promise in the headlines. >> he's calling for a temporary shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: trump, sticking to the hard line that took him to the top and kept him there. but david, trump's critics say the morocco video in his ad highlights how he plays fast and loose with the facts. and more importantly, they point to recent studies that show more mexicans leaving the u.s. than coming in. david? >> tom llamas, covering this campaign straight to election day. tom, thank you. we turn this evening to the tense standoff in one american community in the west tonight. and to breaking developments just moments ago.
in oregon now. heavily armed militia seizing a federal building that they say belongs to the people. tonight, digging in. arguing americans should have more access to federal lands. but many in that small town now caught in the crosshairs. school canceled today. some neighbors saying "go home." abc's neal karlinsky tonight on the group saying, they are prepared to use force, and the sheriff, just a short time ago, asking them to leave. >> reporter: tonight, inside the standoff. abc news given a look past the guard tower. interestingly, they actually have their own fuel pumps here for their cars. the few dozen held up here mainly come from out of state. good-bye to his family before joining up. life down. >> reporter: we found him inside. do you fear that this could turn into something serious enough that you would not be able to return to your family? >> there's always that chance, but that's not what we want and
>> reporter: within the e grseoued the unoccupied federal refuge saturday, protesting prison time against two ranchers convicted of arson for allegedly lighting fires on public land. the pair surrendered at a california prison late today. meanwhile, in oregon, the standoff continues. >> it's time for you to leave our community. go home to your families. >> reporter: schools in the area remain closed, but there is not a shred of police presence out here, and these people say authorities have assured them there will be no confrontation. david? >> neal karlinsky tonight in oregon. neal, thank you. and now, to the white house tonight, and president obama about to take action on gun control, on his own. vowing to use executive action to close the so-called gun show loophole. it is highly controversial, and abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas on
across this country. >> reporter: at gun shows just like this one over the weekend in virginia, hundreds of firearms are sold. often with no background check. >> this is considered an assault weapon. >> reporter: sales brisk in part of that executive action planned by the house. >> obama's the reason. >> reporter: virginia today not much different from when "20/20" watched as the brother of one of the virginia tech massacre victims, trying to raise awareness of the loophole, legally buying an armful of guns at a virginia gun show with no background check. >> went up to him, how much do you want for it? 450 bucks. here's the cash, thanks, see you later. >> reporter: but tonight, the executive order being considered would affect many of those sellers who supplement their income with gun sales. calling on them to register as federal firearms dealers. >> this isisot going to solve every violent crime in this country. it's not going to prevent every mass shooting. it will potentially save lives. >> reporter: critics took aim even before the details came out. >> now this president wants to
>> and pierre is with us now live. pierre, the white house has heard this argument before, but this proposed executive order on gun shows would not have prevented the purchase of guns used in many of the recent shooting rampages, including san bernardino? >> reporter: that's right, david. the gun show loophole would not have affected most of the recent mass shooters. those sales were typically through federal gun dealers and back background checks were, in fact, done. david? >> all right, pierre thomas in washington tonight. pierre, thank you. now, to the extreme weather on both coasts tonight. an arctic blast in the east causing chaos on the roads this evening. a pileup in pittsburgh, and this vehicle, flipping on icy roads in fairview township, pennsylvania. meanwhile, the west bracing for a parade of storms bringing drenching rains, snow, ice and possible mudslides. so, let's get right to meteorologist rob marciano tracking both coasts for us tonight. hey, rob. >> reporter: hey, david. the winds are so cold, they are generating snow off any large body of water and that will continue for the next couple of hours. this is the coldest air of the season, at least for the northeastern third of the country. look at the temperatures in the morning.
minus 5 in boston. 3 in new york. it will be 8 in saginaw, 12 in chicago. so, bust out the layers. good news, though, it will be short-lived. we have several cold storms that will drive into the west here. the first one comes in tomorrow morning. significant rains for los angeles and san diego. then another one comes in wednesday morning, hits san francisco first and then drives to the south and east. this will bring rain anywhere from two to four inches in the cities, more in the hills, so, this is welcome rain, david, but we could see flash flooding and mudslides. we'll have to be aware of that. >> all right, rob, thank you so much. we turn now to the economy, and your money tonight. 2016 getting off to a rocky start on wall street. the dow closing down more than 276 points. the worst opening day of trading in eight years. abc's chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis on the floor of the new york stock exchange tonight. and rebecca, a lot of people wondering, is this a sign of things to come this new year? >> reporter: david, it was bad news today, but surprisingly, it could have been so much worse. i've been speaking to a number of veteran floor traders here today and they tell me, this even caught them offguard.
in china. fears that a slowdown in the world's second-largest economy could have a ripple effect here on the united states and our economy. the other big factor, oil prices, which are lower, it's great news for consumers. you pay less at the pump, but bad news when it comes to energy companies and the jobs of people in this country working at energy companies. there's a saying here on wall street. as goes january, so goes the rest of the year for stocks. it's true 70% of the time, david, so, we have another 18 trading days to set the tone. >> let's hope it's not today. rebecca jarvis, thank you so much. the white house tonight is responding now to escalating tensions overseas between two powerful muslim nations in the middle east. saudi arabia cutting ties with iran. protesters attacking the saudi embassy in tehran, burning the saudi flag after saudi arabia executed a prominent shiite cleric, backed by the iranians. the u.s. concerned this new conflict will only complicate the efforts against isis even more. meantime, there is a major development tonight in the fight

by correspondent lama hasan in 2014, as he urged young muslim men in london to push for sharia law. >> i think that would be the beginning of the end of the united states of america, of britain, of europe and the entire world. >> reporter: and tonight, british officials say, he is a leading suspect, as new isis executioner, which, if it is the case, will put him on the same list that led to the drone attack against the previous isis face of evil, the so-called jihadi john, who executed four american hostages, david. >> all right, brian ross on these new developments tonight. brian, thank you. back here at home, new developments in a deadly police shooting making headlines across the country. bail now granted tonight for former officer michael slager, set at $500,000. the incident caught on camera, he's accused of fatally shooting walter scott eight times from behind after he ran from a routine traffic stop last april. scott's father objecting to the decision, calling slager a danger to the community. tonight, the ntsb is releasing haunting new images from that mystery at sea, the
