7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking overnight, donald trump's obamacare bombshell. the president-elect now promising insurance for everyone but not revealing specifics as he goes on the attack taking on our european allies and the head of the cia after that nasty fight with civil rights icon congressman john lewis. now, dozens of democrats boycotting the inauguration just four days away. breaking this morning, a 747 crashing right into a neighborhood overseas killing at least 33 people. the incredible images after the plane plummeted just miles outside the airport. the investigation right now. an abc news exclusive kidnapped at birth the man who raised that young girl believing she was his daughter for 18 years now speaking out for the first time. >> the person she called dad for 18 1/2 years is not her dad. >> he says
7:01 am
heartbroken as she meets her biological parents. ♪ and last-second thrillers. the packers and superstar quarterback aaron rodgers stunning the cowboys as time runs out. >> it is good. >> a miracle catch along the sidelines setting up the game-winning field goal of an epic game and the steelers knocking off the chiefs without ever scoring a touchdown. both teams now one win away from the super bowl. ♪ ooh ooh and good morning, america. happy monday. what a sunday of football. some wild finishes there. >> my husband, i didn't have him -- i was trying to watch a movie. he didn't want to watch the movie. he kept going to the other room to watch football. >> you can't blame him. crazy weather at the games. take a look at what happened to the dallas kouns stadium. fans forced to shelter in place. lo
7:02 am
because of tornado and flash flood warnings. >> wow. we'll have a lot more on that severe weather just ahead. then this morning we are, of course, honoring dr. martin luther king jr., celebrating his life and his legacy and the fight for civil rights. you are looking live right there at the martin luther king jr. memorial in washington, d.c. beautiful. >> yeah, lots of celebrations today. also watching the capitol getting ready for donald trump's inauguration just four days away now and the president-elect making lots of news on the way in. right to it with our white house correspondent jon karl. quite a headline from "the washington post" this morning. trump now saying he's finalizing a plan to provide health insurance for everyone. how is he going to do it? >> reporter: not a lot of details but a big, bold, ambitious goal here and he says he is down to the final strokes of his plan. the goal sounds a lot like what president obama said eight years ago. listen to this from the interview with "the post." we're going to have insurance for everybody. there was
7:03 am
you can't pay for it, you don't get it. that's not going to happen with us. people can expect to have great health care. it will be in a much simplified form, much less expensive and much better. no details but he does say that he will force drug companies to negotiate prices with the government. george, this has been a big democratic proposal for years. it's been one that's been blocked by republicans in congress. but he says this of the drug companies, they're politically protected but not anymore. >> yeah, that is very definitive. that promise very definitive, you can get it even if you don't pay for it but you run into a math problem. either there's less to that plan that meets the eye or a lot more expensive than republicans have been willing to go along with in the past. >> reporter: absolutely and no details in this about how he would pay for it. >> another interview with "the london sunday times" and a german paper where the president says nato is obsolete. >> reporter: this is quite an interview with these two eupe
7:04 am
that nato is obsolete because it doesn't do enough in the fight against terrorism. this is something he said during the campaign and also he says that nato simply -- nato countries don't pay enough for their defense. countries do not pay their fair share. so we should protect these countries? but many of these countries do not pay what they should have to pay. this is very unfair to the united states but then he adds, apart from this, nato is very important to me so in the same interview he suggests nato is obsolete but also very important. >> also very tough on our ally angela merkel, the head of germany and he seems to be tougher on nato and allies than he has been on vladimir putin. >> reporter: yeah, and he suggests, by the way, that more countries in europe will leave the european union following what britain did with the brexit. >> finally, we also saw the outgoing cia director john brennan in an interview take real exception to those comments donald trump made last week
7:05 am
community's nazi-like tactics. here's what he said. >> what i do find outrageous is equating intelligence community with nazi germany. i do take great umbrage at that and there is no basis for mr. trump to point fixes at the intelligence community for leaking information that was already available publicly. >> president-elect hitting back hard. >> reporter: firing back on twitter and blaming specifically cia director john brennan for the leak. he says, oh, really? couldn't do much worse. look at syria, the red line, crimea and the buildup of russian nukes. not good. was this the leaker of fake news? so that battle with the intelligence community is not ending yet. >> it does continue, jon karl, thanks very much. trump has another battle brewing on this martin luther king jr. day. president-elect trump in that war of words with civil rights leader john lewis. abc's tom llamas is here with those details. >> reporter: good morning to you. sohe

7:07 am
beaten in the march on selma having fought for civil rights arm in arm alongside martin luther king jr. republican senator ben sasse tweeting john lewis and his talk have changed the world. but with four days until he takes the oath of office, team trump backing the president-elect's response. >> i think donald trump has the right to defend himself for someone who use his stature to use terms like this is not a legitimate president, it's just -- it's just deeply disappointing to me and i hope he reconsiders it. >> reporter: the incoming administration also calling for unity, but lewis standing his ground saying he won't be attending trump's inauguration. >> we need folks like john lewis and others who i think have been champions of voter rights actually recognize the fact that donald trump was duly elected. >> reporter: now, politifact rate's trump's description of
7:08 am
mostly false considered one of the nation's fastest growing area, crime, while still higher than the national average is down, as well. we also want to mention, george, 27 members of congress are now boycotting the inauguration. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. let's bring in cornell belcher, the author of "a black man in the white house." boy, this is the latest chapter in donald trump's long and pretty fractious relationship with the african-american community. >> it's tough but you hope that he's got 0 do better, right. sure, i hear that, you know, vice president-elect pence talk about he has a right to defend himself. you know, george, the presidents have to be bigger. people came at george bush all the time, right, but he never went back on a personal matter because he's the president. lord knows people went after barack obama but he never went back in a personal matter. him going after one of the most -- the most iconic civil rights leader that we now have living on coming off of one of the most divisive racially
7:09 am
modern -- >> he says he was just counterpunching. >> yeah, but you have to be bigger for the office, right? it's not about counterpunching. he has % of america voted for him. he has to bring people together. you don't broaden your tent and bring americans together by attacking civil rights icons in such a personal way. look, we have big problems, right? we're not going to solve those if you divide the country. >> so what can he do right now? there was some talk he would go to the african-american museum. apparently that's not happening. might have a meeting with martin luther king iii. if he called you in today what would you say to him, how do i improve my relationship with -- >> i'd drop the phone because i'd be shocked. i would say that he goes to the civil rights museum and learn there. i mean, take in the history that's there but go beyond symbolism. there are deep-rooted issues within the african-american community. i came out of a polling and, you know, criminal justice
