a train smashes into a car at a railroad crossing. how it got stuck and how the driver got out just in the nick of time. >> would you welcome the eagles of death metal. >> and standing tall. the eagles of death metal soaring on stage in paris last night joining u2 and rocking the city in an emotional and powerful return. people have power people have the power and good morning, america. those comments by donald trump causing such an uproar overnight calling for a complete and total shutdown of muslims entering america shaking up the campaign sending shock waves overseas, as well. we've been tracking all the reaction all through the night. >> the gop front-runner joins us live in just a moment to respond this morning. you's be talking to donald trump in a moment.
7:02 am
off with the details on what donald trump said and what is being dade about him. good morning. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. trump's plan comes at an interesting point in the campaign. two polls out of iowa show a very different race, one with trump on top. the other with senator cruz in first place. but now with this plan, the headlines only have one name, trump. for those that couldn't believe it or didn't understand, overnight donald trump said it loud and clear. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: trump arguing because of national security, muslims are no longer welcome in america. >> we have no idea who's coming into your country. we have no idea if they love us or if they hate us. we have no idea if they want to bomb us. >> reporter: and trump promising if elected some muslims in the u.s. will feel the pressure. >> yes, we have to look at mosques. we have no choice.
7:03 am
because something is happening in there, man, there's anger, there's anger. >> reporter: the council on american-islamic relations calling trump unamerican. >> donald trump sounds more like a leader of a lynch mob than a great nation like ours. >> reporter: trump's muslim ban also has him finding more enemy enemies than friends within his own party. former vice president dick cheney slamming trump. >> i think this whole notion that somehow we can just say no more muslims, just ban a whole religion, goes against everything we tan for and believe in. >> reporter: no support for trump from his gop rivals. >> he is preying on the fears of the american people. it is called rabble-rousing. cruz and jeb bush condemning the plan, rubio calling his statements offensive and outlandish. governor chris christie calling it ridiculous. >> this is the kind of thing people say when they have no
7:04 am
they're talking about. >> reporter: and on the other side hillary clinton also weighing in putting out this tweet last night, this is reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive. donald trump, you don't get it. this makes us less safe. but we should also note david brody who covers politics for the christian broadcasting network predicting trump's poll numbers will go up because of this plan. >> we will see and let's talk to mr. trump himself. he joins us on the phone. you've heard that chorus of condemnation not only from hillary clinton but a lot of republicans as well including the chair of the new hampshire republican party, she says it's unrepublican, unconstitutional, unamerican. do you have any second thoughts at all you may have gone too far. >> first of all she's a bush person and she's wants to see bush and bush will crash like no one has ever seen before. we've had calls in, thousands and thousands of people. you saw last night we were on a
7:05 am
there were thousands of people there. there were thousands of people outside that couldn't get in and, frankly, it was a standing ovation that wouldn't stop. the people and you did polls. people -- interviewed the people that heard my speech last night and they just want to see something happen. >> so no second thoughts -- >> we had the preworld trade center -- a lot forget they tried to blow it up twice. we had so many other incidents and now the last incident in california, now it turns out that $28,000 was deposited this punk's safety account probably given by some people that we are fighting, something has to be done. if you look at what i'm saying -- >> let me stop you right there. let me stop you. tell us how it's going to work if you indeed are going to get 24 done. unlikely it could pass congress even if it did likely to be found unconstitutional so how
7:06 am
>> i'm calling very simply for a shutdown of muslims entering the united states and here's a key until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. they don't know. >> how would you stop them from entering the united states? >> the other night with a speech that nobody still knows, i tweeted out, is that all there is? he didn't say anything. we have people in this country that want to blow up our country. you know it and so do i. the polls have come out and various polls i quoted were 25% of those polls agreed that the violence against americans here in the united states is justified. and they're looking at the jihad and they want a global jihad. now, george, we can take it sitting back, you will have many more world trade center, it'll only get worse. you look at paris, you know, i'm not talking about the horrible carnage that took place, paris is no longer the same city.
7:07 am
the police refuse to go to. you go there because it's so dangerous -- >> i understand what you're saying, sir. >> we don't want that for our country, george. >> we have to figure it out. >> tell me how this is going to work. if an american citizen travels overseas, they're muslim, they cannot come back. >> no, they can come back. we're talking about all -- this is not only -- if a person is a muslim, goes overseas and comes back they can come back. they're a citizen. that's different but we have to figure things out. we -- look at this case of the bombing and the killing, the carnage where he had bombs all over his apartment and people knew it and they didn't want to call the police. they knew there was a problem because they didn't want to racially profile him. now, i actually don't believe that. i think these people knew what was going on. i think they are using that as an excuse. they didn't want to racially -- did you ever hear of anything so stupid? they didn't want to call the police -- >> you keep telling --
7:08 am
look, george, we have problems in this country. we have people that want to blow up our buildings, our cities and we have to figure out what's going on. something is happening that's not good. >> you're still not telling -- >> i will tell you this proposal has been met by intelligent people with great popularity. now, george, let me just finish off by saying, it is a period of time, it's until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> well, the question is how would they figure out what was going on and how would you know that people are muslims that are coming into the country and it's not on any passport in the world and you have a lot of support, cover of "the philadelphia daily news." new furor over donald trump showing you raising your hand in a pretty demonstrative gesture and from the council, are we
7:09 am
final solution to the muslim question? i feel like i'm back in the the '30s. you're increasingly being compared to hitler. does that give you pause? >> no, because what i'm doing is no different than fdr. his solution for german, italian, japanese, you know, many years -- >> you're for internment camps. >> this is a president highly respected by all, he did the same thing, if you look at what he was doing, it was far worse, i mean, he was talking about the germans because we're at war. we are now at war. we have a president that doesn't want to say that, but we are now at war. >> i've got to press you on that, sir. you're praising fdr there. i take it you're praising the setting up of internment camps for japanese in world war ii. >> no, i'm not. take a look at presidential proclamations, 2525, 2526 and 2527. having to do with alien german, alien italian, alien japanese
7:10 am
you know, they stripped them of their naturalization proceedings. they went through a whole list of things, they couldn't go five miles from their homes. they weren't allowed to use radios, flashlights. i mean, you know, take a look at what fdr did many years ago and he's one of the most highly respected presidents by -- i mean respected by most people. named highways after him. >> you want to bring back positives like that? >> no, i don't want to bring it back, george, at all. i don't like doing it at all. it's a temporary measure until our representatives, many of whom are grossly incompetent, until our representatives can figure out what's going on. we just had a case where people, many people were killed. we're going to have many more cases like that. we had somebody in this country came in. he came in. they were radicalized. they were look at doing something miraculously yesterday they found $28,000 just put into
7:11 am
just put into his account. he was paid a lot of money just put -- where did that money come from, george? i'll bet you will be surprised to find out where. there are many, many other people like him in this country right now. >> more than 25% of the world are muslims. aren't you concerned at all you'll make the united states a pariah nation and play right into isis' hands. >> george, if you look at paris, france, if you look at london, if you look at some of these cities where they had open arms, you can't even -- paris is a good example. not only the carnage, take a look at paris, the real paris is a different paris than the city of lights that you read about. they have areas in paris where it is so radicalized and so vicious, i told you, that the police refuse to go there. they will not go there. that's what's going to happen with our country. >> so one more time, no second thoughts, any muslim coming to the united states is banned for now until the united states can figure out how this is going --
7:12 am
to -- >> i hope it will go quickly. i hope we can figure it out but we have to look at people. we have to use vigilance in our country or we'll have many more world trade centers and our country will never be the same. we will have many more world trade centers as sure as you are sitting there our country will never be the same and you just said it, until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on, we have no choice but to do this, george. >> donald trump, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you very much. >> george, we'll bring in abc's martha raddatz on this, martha, you just heard what donald trump was saying, standing firmly behind what he said about not allowing any muslims to enter the u.s. how do you feel this will impact the election. >> donald trump has said so many things that people believe are outrageous and think the remarks will do him in and yet his poll numbers have risen but i don't think he's been as strongly criticized by nearly all candidates as he has been on
7:13 am
he was cheered by his supporters. he is touching a chord with them and playing into their fears. >> george touched on this with donald trump. you are our chief global affairs correspondent. you travel the world. this is going to have an impact globally, will it not? >> reporter: it is, worldwide reaction from leading muslim organizations around the world this morning is, frankly, shog and outrage. words like disgraceful, racist are being hurled back at trump. there are also questions about how in the world he could make this happen, as george said, if he were president. would he keep muslims sports teams out of the country? how about malala yousafzai shot in the face by the taliban who's been fighting for girls' education, or had you about king abdullah from jordan who is fighting isis, experts will tell you this plays right into what isis wants, the more muslims
7:14 am
feels they can recruit them. the more that america appears to be targeting muslims not just radical muslims, you can be sure isis would put that in their social media campaign, robin. >> all right, martha, we certainly haven't heard the last from this. >> yeah, you have got to believe this is a defining moment in the campaign, reverberations for months but as you say not backing down at all. we turn to the investigation to the husband and wife terrorist, the fbi is grilling the friend and neighbor who bought their high-powered peps and tracking that suspicious activity in the killer's bank account that trump mentioned. >> federal authorities tell abc news they are pursuing leads that could result in charges being brought against other possible accomplices in the attack and examining an unusually large deposit made into farook's bank account in the weeks before the attacks. the fbi says it has surveillance tape of the two killers taking target practice at locations around the los angeles area.
7:15 am
occasion was done within days of this event. >> reporter: an instructor at this rank said the fbi seized surveillance tape of syed farook shooting his assault rifle on his own. >> he was here by himself. he came to shoot his ar. >> reporter: but farook's wife was also well practiced. authorities say the way she fired her weapon at police from the back of this suv showed great proficiency in handling her assault rifle. the fbi says there is no doubt farook and tashfeen malik had made their plans to attack well in advance. >> we have learned and believe that both subjects were radicalized and have been for quite some time. >> reporter: officials say the most important lead now involves the man they say provided the couple with these two assault rifles. enrique marquez, a former security guard and convert to islam was questioned for much of the day monday by the fbi about
7:16 am
knew in advance about the knew in advance about the planned attacks. >> our major concern is determining how those firearms, the rifles in particular, got from marquez to farook and malik. firearms at present are at the fbi laboratory where the fbi is performing forensic examination on them. >> reporter: authorities tell abc news marquez was questioned for much of the day monday and has provided information not previously known to the fbi about farook and his intentions. marquez's wife is also under scrutiny. a russian emgray whose sister married into the farook family. both wives appear to have come here under that controversial fiancee visa program. >> what about that deposit. >> the working theory that it may have been used to fund the attack. >> let's go to amy with the morning's other top stories starting with more trouble for the police this chicago. >> another disturbing video from chicago police has been now made public. this one showing officers using a stun gun on a man inside a cell and then dragging him down a hallway. he later died from a drug reaction.
7:17 am
officers were justified in their actions but the mayor insists the case is not closed. meanwhile, there will be no charges filed in the fatal chicago police shooting of ronald johnson. investigators say he was armed and posed a threat. authorities near san francisco have arrested five suspects accused of pointing blinding green lasers at politician helicopters, one of three incidents was caught on camera here. these men face up to three years in prison. dramatic moments in orlando when two men turned their car onto the train tracks and then got stuck just as a freight train was approaching. they got out. look at that, with just a few seconds to spare. police say they believe the car was stolen. and an emotional reunion on stage in paris as bono introduced the eagles of death metal. >> is everybody here having a good time? [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: it was their first performance since last month's attack on the bataclan theatre where they were playing.

7:31 am
and he said, i got you. >> reporter: the 27-year-old environmental health specialist huddling under a table in the conference room with her friend shannon johnson, he did not survive. >> he saved you. >> he did. i don't think he realized it at the time. he even thought a second about it -- he just did it instinctively. they say he didn't just save me, he saved our whole family. >> reporter: in an abc news exclusive peraza recounting the terrifying moments after the shooters entered the room. >> obviously i was very scared. you only see these things in movies. gunpowder smell, i'll never forget it, never. i'm so glad i was sitting with him. >> she was shot once in the side struggling to say silent during the attack denise hoped the shooters would think she was dead and move on.
7:32 am
me just trying to control my breathing so if they were still in there, they would think i was dead. >> reporter: she managed to call her husband after the shooters left the room. >> it was devastating. very devastating just like almost lost her in that moment. >> reporter: just one year earlier the staff held an active shooter training in that very room, trudy raymundo and corwin porter shout the 14509shooting was a drill, it was not. the shooting started before they'd even come inside that room. >> i think i heard at least five or six rounds. >> it was pop,po, pop. >> maybe more. >> reporter: they say syed farook was dressed in all black wearing a ski mask and opened fire. his wife tashfeen malik right there too. >> the shooter stepped into the room and began firing immediately. >> reporter: at least 70 people were in that room on a break from the day long training event. the scene before the shooting a happy one. there was a christmas tree, the shooters entering from this door.
7:33 am
pointing at anybody specific. he was just firing. >> reporter: they say the shooters fired in silence. what went through your mind when you heard that name. >> just devastation it could be possibly one of our own. >> it's a complete sense of betrayal. >> reporter: for peraza just thinking about her friend and those three words, i got you, gets her through the pain. >> i'm sure that there's a lot of other people in the office like you said who are helping other people. and i want to make sure that everyone knows how amazing all of them were, every single one of them. >> reporter: tough to hear. no one who survived out here wants to talk about the word terrorism. they don't even want to say the shooter's name, the name that denise praz have wants to talk about, shannon johnson. she says when she starts her family one day soon robin and george, she already has the name of her first child picked out. >> no doubt. no doubt, cecilia, thank you. >> every time you hear that it
7:34 am
we will move on to a former usc football coach steve kerr season was fired for drinking on the job in october. he is now suing the school and claims he was discriminated against because of a alcohol problem. >> this is the moment head coach steve sarkisian's struggle became public. >> let's go. >> reporter: the coach of multiple heisman trophy winners fired two months after this surfaced now the former coach is firing back. filing in at least $12.6 million wrongful termination lawsuit against the university. saying he suffered from alcoholism calling it a disability but claiming usc kicked him to the curb when he sought treatment. sarkisian was terminated for allegedly drinking on the job. his assistant coaches alleging he was under the influence during this september game.

7:37 am

up at 9. more of good morning we welcome you back to "gma" on this tuesday morning and we felt it too. a lot of excitement for mentexcitement "star wars: the force awakens." just ten days away now. >> nothing will top your moment with carrie >> maybe the movie itself. >> we have been counting down to "star wars," so great having all the stars with us. i got to sit down with one of them, the new face of the dark side. in case you hasn't heard the force has awakened here at "good morning america." it is "star wars" week and with us today is adam driver who plays kylo ren, the new bad guy in the galaxy. hi, how are you? >> good. how are you? >> darth vader, kylo ren, who is a bigger bad guy. >> hard to say. >> yes, even you.
8:27 am
>> you know, one is very -- more realized than i think -- kylo ren is definitely a fan. he likes his work. >> that's nice. darth vader is his mentor. >> he is, yeah. >> not disturbing at all. >> no, no, no. some people, you know, make wrong decisions in life, i guess. >> i understand you finally got to see the film. >> i did, yeah, this past week. >> given your sort of need for secrecy, i want to ask maybe a little word association. >> okay. >> when you think about the experience of working on the set and i don't even know who you were in scenes with because we weren't allowed to see the movie being on the same set with carrie fisher -- >> neither do i actually. i'm wearing a helmet so it's like -- like really could have been anybody. >> were you like -- i'll get you when i can find you. >> j.j. was just face this way and hold this up every once in a while. >> is this a lightsaber. >> i don't know. >> oh, darn it. maybe it's a potato peeler. everyone's got to eat in space.
8:28 am
>> so being on the same set with the likes of carrie fisher, what comes to mind? >> she is very generous and very funny and puts everyone at ease immediately, i think. >> chewbacca. >> surprisingly emotional. there's like chewbacca hug breaks and i hate hugging like i don't like to hug anybody. but something about seeing him there everyone -- the costume they had to repair a lot because it kept disintegrating from everyone hugging chewbacca. >> really. >> emotional seeing someone that huge and furry. >> warms my heart is a strange way. >> okay. good. >> han solo, the one and only harrison ford. >> very surreal. again, very generous and i remember one time we were looking at sets, everyone was kind of all around all the time, even at base camp we're on set and he said, look what we get to
8:29 am
would think that someone who has accomplished so much in his life and career would be less kind of excited maybe. that's like a bad idea that i had going into it but still excited by the process and doing it and playing that character is kind of also moving for me. >> how was it juggling both girls and "star wars"? you couldn't get two more different projects to be shooting at the same time. >> it was good in that like actually because i feel like i tend to overthink things so didn't have any room to think because you're shooting one week and flying and shooting "girls" the next week. >> you never got confused, lightsaber on the "girls" set. >> show up naked on "star wars." why is everybody -- yeah, ironclad. >> is it true that "girls canth is over. >> one more season, yeah and i think it's done. >> yeah. >> experience been terrific. >> yeah, if they wanted to keep doing it, i would keep doing it.
8:30 am
of people, the crew and the cast. >> well, and you do an amazing job on it. love "girls." looking forward to that new season and then also add dram drivers in "star wars: the force awakens." congratulations. >> thanks. >> can't wait to see it. show me a frame of it.

8:32 am
>> i love my job. >> you're miserable. >> i love my job. i love my job, honey. >> mark. >> cynthia, i'm okay. i really am. hey, hey, hey. no, no. my cab. that's my cab. that's my cab. that is my cab. >> i'll call you later. >> steve carell joins us right now. after that scene, you know, you played a banker named steve izeman but he wants to make a lot of money but is on a crusade crusade. >> he sees himself as a hero in this enormous corrupt institution. >> what was it like having him on set? >> a little weird. >> i'll bet. >> i play a character based on him. the character's name is mark baum but it's closely based on steve and he showed up the second day i was shooting and they told him, you know, maybe don't hang out around the monitor, you know, sort of let the director -- just be a fly on
8:33 am
was giving adam notes. he was coming on set and giving me notes but -- >> that's the kind of guy he is. >> he's a very brash guy but he helped -- he's really smart and the notes were good. >> that's the thing about this movie. such a creative movie. it brought back for me a lot of memories of that crisis but you guys found ways to break it down in a real accessible way. who would have thought selena gomez could talk to you about klatt collateralized debt obligations. >> how are they going to break this stuff down, you think. someone like me could actually understand it and adam does a really good job and do does it in an entertaining way. >> it is a scary time. >> i think it is kind of a horror movie. at the end it leaves you with this ominous feeling in your gut and, you know, it's funny also. >> that's the thing. it's got a lot of different elms. a lot of tension. >> we're talking about "star wars," right?
8:34 am
that is all we talk about on "gma." >> all right. bob iger, did you hear that? it's good. right there. you changed a little bit for the role. >> i did. >> i gained like 25 pounds. >> committed to your character. >> you know what, adam mckay, the director asked me to put on weight because the character, the guy dresses well but doesn't necessarily look good in clothes and always a little bit shlubby so i ate a lot of deep dish pizza and i showed up the first day and adam said, wow, you're really fat. and i said -- >> nice. >> and i took it -- it was a compliment. it was great. i think it's the only way that that -- >> i heard you gave it right back to ryan gosling. >> ryan walked out of the trailer in the first time in his look and i said, never look like that again. don't ever do that. >> he's such a good-looking guy and it's a bad, bad -- it's a
