we want to move now to the race to president and donald trump has responded after being featured in a terrorism recruiting video. the republican front-runner is now pointing the finger at hillary clinton, but the bigger question, will this hurt the republican front-runner's campaign with the iowa caucus less than one month away? mary bruce with the latest. >> reporter: that's right. we're finally hearing from donald trump about that video but he's shrugging it off. he said at least he has the guts to address the bigger problem. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: his rhetoric is being used in a terrorism recruitment video. but donald trump isn't changing his message any time soon. >> does it concern you at all that you're being used in a recruitment video? >> what am i going to do? i have to say what i have to say.
picture. >> there's a problem, we have to find out what's the problem. and solve that problem. >> reporter: in a new video, al shabaab shows a clip of trump calling for a ban on muslims entering the u.s. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown. >> reporter: but the republican front-runner said he's not the only one to have been used in a terrorism video. >> they use other people, too. >> he's becoming isis' best recruiter. >> reporter: hillary clinton sparked fierce debate when she said trump's language was providing fodder for terrorists. a claim that was never proven. >> they are going to people showing videos of donald trump insulting islam and muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists. >> reporter: overnight, trump turned the tables on clinton. >> they've created isis, hillary clinton created isis with obama. >> reporter: this morning, still no response from the clinton camp. >> hillary clinton has to be tempted to say, told you so when
to be careful. because she did overstate the facts on the debate stage a few weeks ago. so she's got to tread a bit carefully on this. but this is an essential argument against donald trump. >> now, all this comes as the candidates enter the final stretch to the iowa caucuses just four weeks away. the question now is whether trump can turn his high poll numbers into real votes? dan. >> a huge question lingering over this campaign. mary bruce reporting from the white house this morning. thank you. let's bring in martha raddatz who's also in washington, where she'll be hosting "this week" later this martha, good morning, what cards does hillary clinton have to play here? as rick klein pointed out in mary's piece, this isn't a clean "told you so" moment. when she first argued it she did so without apparent evidence. >> well, she certainly did, what she'll do now is probably ignore what she said in the beginning and just say, see, i told you so, they are using donald trump in those videos and she'll try to move on from this.
of things in this campaign that don't exactly turn out to be true. i think she'll use this as proof. >> when trump argues that clinton and obama, quote, created isis, is there any basis for that? >> well, we can get into a big, long discussion there, dan, you can look back over the last decade about who created isis, how it started. it definitely started there in iraq, you could argue, i suppose, and her opponents will probably argue that, because there weren't troops left behind, she'll say the iraqis didn't want any americans there. but others said, maybe, if you argued more to leave them there it might have made a difference. intelligence officials say, if we have had troops on the ground the intelligence would have been better. we might have had a bigger say in this. but others will go back to george bush and blame him.
been robust for a while. martha, thank you very much. we appreciate having you on a sunday morning. a reminder, martha has a big show this morning. she will be interviewing presidential candidates ben carson and democratic senator bernie sanders. coming up on "this week" on abc. we mentioned earlier in the show that the middle east is a very volatile region this morning and ron, you have a look at that. as well as our headlines. good morning, everyone. we're going to begin overseas with fears of a violent backlash in the muslim world after an execution of a prominent shiite cleric. nimr al nimr. put to death on terrorism charges. abc's alex marquardt is tracking all the late-breaking details from london. good morning to you, alex. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. fast and furious condemnation from iran's leadership, the supreme leader eye toll la khamenei saying that
revenge of the execution. they threw molotov cocktails and set fires before being driven back by police. this is very significant and potentially dangerous development in the rivalry between iran, which is the biggest shiite muslim country in the world, and saudi arabia, because the cleric nimr al nimr was the leader of saudi's shiite minority. and spoke out against the royal family in saudi arabia. he was tried on terrorism-related charges. a trial that was called deeply flawed by human rights groups, ron. >> alex, thanks for that. back here at home in the u.s., millions of americans will be taking to the skies with today being the busiest day for air travel. some air travelers going from chicago to seattle, possibly trying to beat the rush. had a frustrating trip. passengers on an american airlines flight said they were stuck on the tarmac going from seattle to chicago for three
a fueling issue. airliners are projected to have 73,000 passengers more today than this date last year. now to a tense standoff in oregon where some armed militiamen have taken over a national wildlife refuge. their armed standoff with federal agents two years ago over grazing rights. they are now occupying a federal government office on a wildlife preserve in the southeastern portion of oregon, they're doing this in support of two local ranchers facing prison time on arson charges. one of them is the son of cliven bundy took to facebook telling supporters, we need your help, come prepared. the owners of the oregon property which is on federal land say they'll peacefully turn themselves in tomorrow. finally the stage is set for
hotter, this, after no one hit jackpot. the next drawing will be wednesday night, right now, it looks like the estimated jackpot -- sara, you were talking about this yesterday -- it's going up to 400 million bucks. i have a method for picking my numbers. i go with numbers of old yankee greats. i haven't won so far. i might switch to mets. maybe that will work. >> maybe try red sox. >> you know what for 400 million bucks i might try the red sox. >> thank you very much. >> start with number 9. no number 9 on the red sox. >> absolutely. we're out of time. from major league baseball to the nfl, it's a big day in the nfl because today marks the final day of the regular season but there's a new twist off the field against the top fantasy sports sites. could usually losing players find themselves big winners? >> lot of people really stunned

operations. something both companies have repeatedly denied. those sites reportedly took in more than $200 million in entry fees from at least 600,000 customers in new york in 2015. the lawsuit aims to reimburse each of them for losses and pay a $5,000 penalty for each violation. fanduel vowing to fight. this meritless amended suit. and draftkings tells abc news the lawsuit is based on the fundamental misunderstanding of fantasy sports competition. whether that will continue as this case goes to trial. >> new york isn't the first state to really step in. >> these sites are already banned in nevada and there are other states considering or already moving forward with lawsuits. we got new developments to tell you about this morning in
