7:04 am
supporters will not go out to vote because they are so confident about this election. >> so focused on energizing voters. now to donald trump. as i said, we sat down at the opening of his hotel in washington yesterday in the he was energized, upbeat and as you will see, in no mood to apologize to his critics or his accusers. i did the first interview on the first day of the campaign. >> you did, that's right. >> here in the trump hotel. what do you say to supporters of yours who think you shouldn't be taking time off the campaign trail through the battleground states? >> i think it's so unfair because, you know, hillary clinton goes to see an adele concert last night and everybody says, oh, wasn't that nice, isn't that wonderful. i have stopped -- i did eight stops yesterday. i built one of the great hotels of my world. what am i supposed to do, not show up? i'm taking one hour off. i built this hotel under budget and ahead of schedule. now that's why i'm doing this. >> you talked a lot about the fact you think this election could be rigged. i want to go back to 2012 and you sent out a tweet. >> the system is rigged. the election system is rigged.
7:05 am
>> 2012, this election is a total sham and a travesty. we are not a democracy. how is the 2012 election -- >> i look at the way the media treats the republicans and conservatives, and i see the way it's so skewed. a sham and a travesty. >> i think it was horrible the way they were treated in the media. the only thing worse is it way i'm being treated. look, i'm being treated -- hey, it's record-setting bad treatment what i'm getting. the greatest pile-on in american history. i go to these rallies, and they are starting to hate the media because they see it's all a big lie -- not all, but a lot of it's a big lie. >> you got a billion dollars in free media during the primaries. >> i don't know if you call it free when it's bad. what should really be -- they should be talking about wikileaks and the horrible things that have come out about hillary clinton. the horrible things. >> let's stick on this election idea. >> george, she's so guilty. she deleted 33,000 e-mails. they're missing boxes of e-mails. she's so guilty. how could she even run?
7:06 am
but there's such anger in this country over what she got away with. >> the fbi director appointed by a republican said no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a >> he made a mistake. okay? or whatever. i don't even call it a mistake. i think something happened. look, something happened. >> what happened? >> well, i think somebody talked to him. hey, look. i think -- hey, look, how can president clinton when -- >> so you're saying the head of the fbi is corrupt? >> george, george, she's so guilty. congress sends a subpoena. she deletes all of her e-mails, okay. she deletes them. >> if she wins -- i know think you're going to win, but if she wins and gets the kind of win that president obama got, more than 300 electoral votes, and several million in the popular vote, will you accept -- >> i'll make that decision at the right time. i mean, don't worry about it. i'll make the decision at the
7:07 am
right time. but we have a rigged system. look at what's coming out with wikileaks. look what they're saying. what podesta says, hillary clinton running for president has bad instincts. bernie sanders says she's got bad judgment. so if podesta says bad instincts, sanders base bad why are people even thinking about running for her? >> all 17 u.s. intelligence agencies believe the russians are behind that leak. why don't you believe it? >> i don't know if they're behind it and i think it's public relations, frankly. you know what does bother me -- >> you were told by the head of the homeland security. he said the same thing. >> i don't know what he said. >> he told you that he thought the russians were behind it. >> hacking is untrusting. hacking is very hard to determine who did what, okay. you know that. people are hacking all over the place and nobody knows. they don't know if it's russia. they can't guarantee it's russia and it may be. >> let's talk about mosul. on sunday you sent out a tweet saying that the operation was a total disaster. the defense secretary is on the ground, and he says they are making progress. they are encouraged by the progress. the former dean of the army war college says this shows that trump doesn't know a damn thing about military strategy. >> the army war college of the
7:08 am
let me tell you, the element of surprise. i've been hearing about mosul for three months. we're going to attack. we're going to attack meaning iraq is going to attack but with us. okay? we're going to attack. why do they have to talk about it? element of surprise. one of reasons they wanted mosul they wanted to get the isis leaders who they thought were in mosul. those people have all left. as soon as they heard they're going to be attacked they left. the resistance is -- >> the defense secretary says 35 of them have been taken out. >> excuse me. the resistance is much greater now because they knew about the attack. why can't they win first and talk later? why do they have to say three months before the attack we're going in? so you can tell your military expert that i'll sit down and teach him a couple of things. threatened to sue the 11 women who have accused you of sexual assault. >> you know, i hate that you waste time when we're talking about isis and jobs and you are still bringing that up. everybody wants to bring it up. >> that was just saturday. >> these were false attacks. these things never happened. these people, i don't know these people. these things never ever
7:09 am
happened. this was out of the blue. it was made up. probably by the clinton campaign. >> do you have any evidence of have already been debunked. many of the stories have already been debunked. >> "people" magazine story they brought forward six witnesses to corroborate the story. >> why didn't she run it 12 years ago? >> she was afraid. >> oh, she was afraid. give me a break. she was afraid to write it. she would have gotten the pulitzer prize. >> all these women, everyone is lying. >> they made up stories. why? fame or they wanted to help clinton or something -- >> they came out after you denied the behavior. >> george. let's not waste any more time. these stories are fabricated. they are lies. >> lawsuit? >> we'll find out. let's see what happens with the election. we're going to find out. >> when you look back over the sweep of this campaign going back to last june anything you regret? >> oh, absolutely. to have done things over but you can't. you can't, but that's true in life. i'd love to have done in life
7:10 am
certain things over and you would have to. >> give me one. >> you would love to have not contributed to the clinton foundation. as an example. there are things that you wish you didn't do. okay? but george, all you can do is you put your head down and you have to go forward. >> do you think you should have apologized to the khans or judge curiel? >> i have great respect for the khan family. i have great respect for -- i mean, their son is a great hero, but if i were president at that time, captain khan would be alive today, george. because i wouldn't have been in iraq. so if i were preside, khan's son would be -- >> you did support it initially. >> support? >> the invasion. >> look, let's get it straight. i was opposed to the war in iraq. i was opposed to the war in iraq, and for the most part, the honest people agree with it.
7:11 am
>> the howard stern statement was pretty clear. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. you know, i wish it was -- i wish the first time it was done correctly. and that was the first time i was even asked about iraq, and i gave a very, like, i don't know. who knows? had i been president, captain khan would be alive today. we wouldn't have been in this horrible, horrible mistake, the war in iraq. >> final question. i heard backstage, colonel dolan said you said hillary clinton was a tough and talented lady. she said, if i win, we have to work together. i know you think you're going to work with her? >> i just want to make that decision at a later date. i'm not saying i'm not or i am. hopefully i won't have to make that decision. i really believe we're going to win. >> and we're going to talk about this all now with abc's matthew dowd and cokie roberts. he says he's going to win. matt dowd, where does the race stand right now? our own tracking poll does show
7:12 am
it a little bit closer, that six points you said on monday. >> instead of describing this as tightening i would describe it as settling. the race is settling as we remember having a conversation this race has been at 5 or 6, 150 days ago when the general election started it was at 5 or 6. 100 days ago it was at 5 or 6. two weeks ago it was at 5 or 6. a week ago it was at 5 or 6 so i think the race is just settling back into its natural equilibrium. if he somehow moves the race below four to three or two, then this race is very competitive again. >> then you're seeing something new. in the meantime, cokie roberts, what you're donald trump, he still has issues trying to win over new voters, especially women voters, and, you know, we saw how he talked about the accusers right there. you also have newt gingrich, one of his top supporters getting into that tangle with megyn kelly. >> right, right. women are not going for him, but it is -- i agree with matt
7:13 am
completely. it is settling, but it could get quite tight. republicans have come home, and i think that you are going to see some questioning among some of the women who have been saying that they are for hillary never really been all that happy about it. but, you know, when he says that women are accusing him because they want fame, nobody has ever wanted fame for sexual assault, and people are very hesitant to come forward on something like that. and he says it's been debunked, but it hasn't been debunked. so i think that, you know, a lot of people have trouble believing him on that front. >> okay, cokie, matt, thanks so much. much more of the interview later when i sit down with his wife melania and his children next hour. >> looking forward to that, geor. earthquakes that happened overnight striking the central region of italy just hours apart. this was about 50 miles north of the area where a quake killed nearly 300 people back in august. abc's lama hasan has the scary moments caught on tape. >> reporter: overnight, central italy rocked by two powerful earthquakes toppling buildings.

game on april 7th, and hadn't played major league level until the first game of the world series. >> kyle schwarber, two days ago, playing the arizona fall league. you have not seen major league that's possible? >> i mean, you live for this moment. this is the moment that you want to be in. >> reporter: as the series heads to wrigley field tomorrow night, the friendship between cubs second baseman, javier baez, and indians shortstop, francisco lindor delighting fans. >> i've been watching him. i know what he's capable of doing. >> me and him are really close. really, really close. almost like brothers. i know his family. he knows my family. >> reporter: they grew up just 15 miles apa >> reporter: the duo even hit back-to-back triples. >> another three-bagger. gets a base hit into center. >> reporter: cleveland starter trevor bauer got pulled in the fourth inning, but there was as much tension on his pinky as his game. two weeks ago bauer sliced open the finger on his pitching hand after playing with a drone.
7:17 am
before the game number 47 tweeted out this gift he had received from a couple of cubs that fan's gift worked. i got to tell you, the energy here was just palpable from both sides. now that energy moves on to chicago, guys. >> i hope they get some weather there too, huh, gio? >> he is hiding in the dugout. >> i think he's wincing. >> good idea to start it early because of the rain. >> great idea. the rain came in after the game. just after 11:00, so good move there. chicago will be beautiful. you know what was early season hit of snow where i'm from on the pumpkins we go with that snow. measurable snow a couple of weeks early. where it was falling in different parts of mid-michigan. i wanted to also show you this morning happening in pennsylvania, new york and even parts of new jersey and winter weather advisories out for more than 4 inches of snow. let's get to the rainy cities

7:34 am
minds. you really do. the media poisons the mind of the american voter. they really do. it's unfair. but the thing is the american i mean, i'm going to see how smart they are, but the american voter -- i think the american investigator is smarter than the media. >> it's clear you both feel very, very strongly about this, clearly you know, we know and i very, very strongly about this, clearly you know, we know and i answered questions about this. >> i'm automatically attracted to beautiful women. i just start kissing them. >> he apologized to you for it. you said during the third debate, you said you didn't. >> they're false. i have to say that and i didn't even apologize to my wife who is sitting right here because i didn't do anything. >> was that okay with you? >> they were -- they were lies and as i said before, all the accusations, they should be handled in a court of law. >> you believe the lawsuits should go forward? >> yes, i believe that. and because to accuse somebody of -- without evidence, it's very hurtful, and it's very
7:35 am
damaging and unfair. and, but honestly, do we still need to talk about that? in america. >> she is so right about that. she's so right about that. >> they want to hear what we will do to make america better. let's talk about jobs. let's talk about secure our border. that's what american people want to hear about. >> i think people -- >> just to finish, i can't apologize for something that i didn't do. nothing ever -- >> it's more likely to go away if you don't sue. >> we'll see what happens. okay? let's see what happens on the 8th. november 8th. >> have you thought more about what you would like to do as first lady? >> i will focus on helping children and women and also about social media in this 21st century what's going on, it's very hurtful to children. to some adults as well, but we need to take --
7:36 am
>> hard to keep it away from your kids. >> it is but we need to teach them how to use it, what is right to say, what is not right to say and because it's very bad out there and children get hurt. >> by? by what's going on and by negativity. >> you give him advice about tweets? >> yes, i do, all the time. >> well, look, it's a modern-day form of communication, george and you know, i have between facebook and twitter i have 25 million people. it's a big asset. you have to use it right. but it's a big asset. >> she'll tell you when you use it wrong. >> she can give me pretty good advice. what she is saying is true, though. i've seen so many people hurt so badly, not just children, i mean new social media. and she feels very strongly about it. she understands it very well. it's very dangerous for children. >> very dangerous, "the new york times" was -- all the people say think you've insulted. on twitter. >> that's okay. most of them deserved it. >> were you one of them? >> actually, i wasn't. i was a little surprised at that. >> i'm surprised. let's go check it.
7:37 am
i can't believe i didn't include you. no, look, i believe in fighting back. when people are against me, when the power of this instrument and frankly, sometimes i'll use that. and i agree. sometimes it will revert back or sometimes maybe it doesn't come out -- you have to be careful with it. >> what do you think about hillary clinton? not as a candidate. i know you believe mr. trump will be a better president of the united states. what do you think of her as a person? >> i don't know her that well. i think she's out there fighting. i think it's a political machine behind it, behind her. she is protected a lot, and they will not say everything what needs to be said. >> and finally, you're okay with what happens no matter how the vote goes on november 8th? >> yes. the life goes on. no matter what happens. >> but he's going to win? >> i think so.
7:38 am
we're fighting till the end. >> thank you both. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> interesting to see their dynamic. i found out melania has never been to the white house. >> oh, my goodness. >> not once so if they win it b. >> oh, my goodness. >> not once so if they win it could be the first time. >> you're going to be talking with the kids coming up next. >> that's coming in our next hour. all four adult children will be there. we'll talk to them in just a little bit. until then, we have the big board, george. got the big board coming up. a scary moment on a plane is what we'll talk about when a pilot is removed from the cockpit and charged with dui after authorities smell alcohol on his breath. plus a new alert this morning about dangers in school zones. what all parents need to know when we come back in just two minutes. ust two minutes. minutes.

8:11 am
whoo! i feel so aliii... it takes guts. when i was a little kid, i made a deal with myself we met when we were very young... i was 17, he was 18. we made the movie the book of life. we started doing animation. with the surface book, you can actually draw on the screen. so crisp. i love it. it's almost like this super powerful computer and a tablet had the perfect baby. (laughing) it's a typewriter for writing scripts... it's a sketchbook for sketches...
8:12 am's a canvas for painting... there was the ribbon cutting in washington yesterday at the new trump hotel. and we're back now with more from donald trump and his family. they were all together there in washington, d.c. for that. less than two weeks before election day and we spoke about how the campaign has changed their lives, whether it's been damaging to their company's
8:13 am
brand. as don jr. told me, it's been a brutal process. this is really a question for everybody but it's based on something you said when you were a teenager. you said your father's legacy is how has that changed over the course of this campaign? >> we're proud of our father and what he's accomplished. it is amazing. i've been joking for awhile that when we started even just this project, we said trump was coming to pennsylvania avenue and we didn't even know at the time what exactly that meant or -- >> one way or the other. >> -- how foreshadowing a statement that would be. >> i humbly and gratefully accept your nomination. >> we've seen there all year long. don, there's a lot of talk about the possibility of you running for office yourself. has this made it more likely or less likely? >> it's a tough process. it is a brutal process but there isless that element that's amazing to be able to touch someone that way and seen my father doing that. my only mission is to get him there because i know he can make
8:14 am
a difference. [ chanting "trump" ] >> all three of you -- you're >> i just graduated in may. >> are you interested? >> of course, i'm interested, i think. i'm applying to law school now so i'd like to bring a different skill set to the company. >> all three are senior vice presidents of the trump organization so i want to ask you a question i asked your dad. several stories recently suggesting that your brand has taken a hit over the course of this campaign. what are you going to do about it? >> i think we have the hottest brand and i think buildings are a testament to what we do every day. >> some studies show less foot traffic in some of the businesses. there's one i guess apartment in new york trying to get riverside drive. >> i think the brand is much more than just new york city. this is a global brand. when you look at the people he's touching on a daily basis, the presidency, fixing america is so much bigger than any of that regardless. >> i think the brand is hotter than it's ever been but it doesn't matter to me. i don't care. it doesn't matter. i don't care about the brand. i care about the country.
8:15 am
>> ivanka, you've got your own business. i wonder what you say to the women who started this grab your wallet campaign on twitter to boycott your collection. women who are doing it? >> well, the beauty of america is people can do what they like. but i'd prefer to talk to the millions, tens of millions of american women who are inspired by the brand and the message that i've created. my advocacy of women trying to empower them in all aspects of their life started long before this presidential campaign did. i've never politicized that message. people who are seeking to politicize it because they may disagree with the politics of my father, there's nothing i can do to change that. >> and all of you, you're going to stick with the business even if your dad wins? >> we're building. yeah, it's been an awesome debate. a small cog in the wheel. >> okay, be honest, which one predicted you all would be here today this close to the election? >> i don't think any of us got that far ahead of ourselves when he first announced his
8:16 am
candidacy. we're not a political family. i think we were attempting to understand realtime what that meant in terms of our future and in retrospect, i don't think any of us would tell you we're surprised. i've never in the past seen him fail and this is obviously on another level in terms of his commitment to this country and its people. >> you're surprised? >> well, i guess a lot of people are surprised in terms of the press, et cetera, but i think probably i wouldn't have done it if i didn't think i could win. you know, if i thought i was going to be knocked out nine people ago, i would have probably said i won't do it. so i can't say i'm surprised. it's really about making america great again. that's what it's about. that's why i'm doing this. >> so all the adult kids say they're going to stay with the business even if he does win the white house. they won't go to the white house and become advisers but could raise real questions if he wins about conflicts and how they'll handle that.
8:17 am
that will be a huge issue if we get to that day. >> all right, but an incredible interview. such insight into the family. how it works leading up to these final days of the election.
