7:02 am
guy first in line said he's been out there since wednesday. >> really? >> yes. >> that's loitering. >> that's one way to put it, michael. also this morning a lot of reaction coming in to the republicans' sweeping $1.5 trillion tax plan now revealed and our new poll out this morning shows 60% of americans believe his tax plan mainly favors the wealthy. >> the president, well, he's also facing a surprise twitter shut down overnight. his account disappeared for 11 minutes and it turns out a twitter employee was kind of behind that. >> which means the president was up early tweeting about that. we'll get into that coming up. also kick off his trip to asia. longest of his presidency and visit japan, china and south kor korea. right to cecilia vega already on the ground in tokyo. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: just landed, george. good morning to you h is being called the most consequential trip for
7:03 am
tomorrow one of the things on his agenda playing a round of golf with shinzo abe but hanging over this trip is the threat of north korea. questions about whether president trump might tone down his language using words like rocket man and aides are telling us he doesn't plan to tone down his language. we won't hear a softer tone but ahead he is considering adds pyongyang, north korea, to that list of state-sponsored terrorism. one thing the president won't be doing on this triple not be visiting the dmz, the demilitarized zone. past presidents have made that trip. this president is not going to do so. the white house says he'll go to south korea and visit troops and a military base there instead. >> in the meantime, cecilia, that 11-minute shutdown of the president's twitter account and the president saying this morning they were doing it for a reason. >> reporter: yeah, as you mentioned he is up and tweeting aboutit
7:04 am
tweet, my twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee. i guess the word must finally be getting out and having an impact. not really sure what impact he's talking about but let me give you a few details. this happened around 7:00 last night. the president's twitter account went dark and lasted for all of 11 minutes, overnight twitter gave the reason. this is what they're saying, blaming a rogue employee and says it was his last day on the job and he deactivated the president's account on his way out the door and they are conducting a full internal review. this is the twitter er in chief. he started this account in 2009 and he's tweeted more than 36,000 times. president trump himself has said that part of the reason he won the white house is because of his use of social media and his popularity on it so clearly his blank twitter account caused quite the stir online. so far in spi
7:05 am
from president trump himself, george, no comment from the white house. >> amazing that one person at twitter could do that. thanks very much. >> george, more on the tax plan. a sweeping overhaul now revealed. to our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce there on capitol hill with more on what it means for families. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, lawmakers are still poring over this 400 plus page bill but the big question this morning what does this really mean for you? republicans are promising relief to the middle class, but we've learned much of that could depend on where you live and what deductions you rely on. this morning, the president is giving the sweeping new republican tax plan rave reviews. >> people are loving it. we've had tremendous receptivity to a point i haven't seen anything like it. >> reporter: it's a big win for the rich but the president insists that's not the case. >> not for the rich. it's for the middle class and it's for jobs. >> reporter: so which is it? republicans say the average
7:06 am
could save roughly $1200 per year. their bill simplifies the number of tax brackets from seven to just four. if your family makes more than $24,000 a year but less than $90,000 you would pay up to 12%. if you have children, the child tax credit expands from $1,000 to $1,600. ecstatic, the president welcomed the plan thursday with a smooch. but to pay for all these tax cuts, the bill slashes popular tax breaks that many americans rely on. if you have student debt, gone would be that student loan interest deduct. the deduction for medical expenses is out too. looking to buy a home, the mortgage interest deduction would be cut in half. only applying to the first $500,000 of a home loan. now, critics say this is just a boon to the rich and it is a big win for big business slashing the corporate tax rate from 35% down
7:07 am
eliminates the estate tax which is likely to benefit wealthier americans. >> that is the chances the bill will pass. >> reporter: i talked to some house republicans who say this bill isn't going to cut it. they are a no but republican leaders remain optimistic they can get this through and heard yesterday the president promised the american people this bill will be, quote, a big, beautiful christmas present. >> we did hear that. all right, mary. >> a lot does depend on the president. let's bring in jon karl for more on that. the president out there selling it yesterday even though our new poll shows a majority of americans don't like the plan so far and some skittishness on capitol hill about how the president will lead this fight given what happened during the health care fight. >> reporter: there is constant fear that the president is going to change his mind, change policy in response to criticism or cut some kind of side deal and the republicans will learn about it on twitter but i have to say overall i sense confidence on the part of republicans and spoke to speaker of the house pau
7:08 am
yesterday after his meeting with the president and he says he really does believe they can get it done by christmas. >> meantime, jon, the democratic party rocked by this revelation by donna brazile that the clinton campaign had effectively taken control over the dnc before she got the nomination. president trump now weighing in on that this morning. >> reporter: he's got a double-barreled attack on this. he's going after the dnc, of course, but he's also in an odd twist going after his own justice department. overnight the president jumped on revelations that hillary clinton had control over the dnc even before she won her party's nomination. tweeting, donna brazile just stated the dnc rigged the system to illegal steal the primary from bernie sanders. bought and paid for by crooked h. this is real collusion and dishonesty, major violation of campaign finance laws and money laundering. where is our justice department? he's referring to revelations in a new book by former dnc chair
7:09 am
the dnc entered into an agreement back in 2015 that gave the clinton team a degree of control over the party long before the first votes were cast in the democratic primary. trump continued the attack last night in an interview on fox news. >> but i want to tell you that is a big story, what she's saying. it's illegal, number one, and it's really unfair to bernie sanders. i'm not a bernie sanders fan but i must say i got a lot of his votes when he was thrown out. >> reporter: in another interview the president expressed frustration that he doesn't have more control over his own justice department. >> i'm very frustrated by it. i look at what's happening with the justice department. why aren't they going after hillary clinton with her e-mails and her -- the dossier and the kind of money -- i don't know. is it possible they paid $12.4 million for the dossier and how was -- which is total phony, fake. and how is it used? >> reporter: and the president just minutes ago went after his own justice department yet again
7:10 am
on twitter tweeting, everybody is asking why the justice department and the fbi isn't looking into all of the dishonesty going on with crooked hillary and the dems. by the way, george, democrats are raising questions about this, as well. elizabeth warren was asked point blank if she believes the primary was rigged and she said, yes. >> a lot of democrats angry about this and don't like what hillary clinton did during the campaign. the more they've learned about it from donna brazile but to clarify a couple of points here. there's no indication there was any illegal activity going on in the dnc despite the president's claims and i guess if he really wanted the justice department to investigate this, he could ask them. >> reporter: absolutely. no allegation of illegal activity coming really from anybody except for the president. but it is quite something to see him effectively go after his own attorney general instead of simply maybe asking had him to look into it. >> jon karl, thanks very much. george, also this morning, we're learning new details about that deadly terror attack here in new york city. overnight people gathered
7:11 am
remember the victims. and now we have dramatic new video showing what happened right after the attacker was taken down by police. we're also learning about a phone call he made right before the rampage and our chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with new details. >> that's right and good morning to you. overnight as isis claimed responsibility for the halloween attack in new york, federal agents grew more concerned that the attacker might have been part of a larger cell. 29-year-old sayfullo saipov reportedly told the fbi he acted alone but now agents are raising questions about a number of his associates who like him came to the u.s. from uzbekistan. senior federal officials tell abc news they will be questioning a friend of his later today who agents say saipov called in the hour before the attack and as well, robin, saipov is known to have been a point of contact for at least 23 uzbek residents who came to the u.s. >> as agents look into the background of those 23, of course, there has to be concern they had terror connections. >> of course, at least one was
7:12 am
expelled from the u.s. because of such concerns and uzbekistan has been a breeding ground for a number of isis followers, nine of whom have been convicted or are awaiting trial in the u.s. on terrorism charges so the question this morning is what contact if any they had with saipov and whether there may be some kind of cell in this country of uzbek immigrants to the u.s. >> a question we want to know the answer to. all right. >> we'll find out. thank you. we're learning more about the schoolchildren on the bus that was hilt in that terrorist attack. noah salz was on board and his parents were worried about his whereabouts but then saw him on the news. >> and then i started to cry and then i said, i want to just get out of here quickly as i can. then i sat there for a minute and heard a gunshot. >> i actually was able to call noah and i spoke to him briefly then i saw him on a stretcher. that was a real odd moment. >> wow. >> incredibly enough noah went to school the v
7:13 am
he has a perfect attendance record. de not want to lose that and it is very important to him to show up. what a special kid. >> indeed, thank you, michael. turning to new allegations, though against kevin spacey. eight people who work on "house of cards" reportedly accusing the star of sexual harassment saying it created a toxic work environment. abc's linsey davis is here with more on that. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning. these eight people are all coming forward anonymously saying they ferret tri because but describe the set of "house of cards" as a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with spacey in any capacity. new sexual misconduct allegations this morning against kevin spacey from the set of his hit show "house of cards." >> honesty is your best defense and offense. >> reporter: eight new accusers speaking anonymously to cnn say the two-time academy award winner's behavior was predatory and claim it involved nonconsensual touching and crude comments targeting
7:14 am
one former production assistant said he assaulted him in a car when he was tanked with driving him to set. >> the new allegations against kevin spacey raise the question as to whether there will be both criminal and civil charges filed. >> reporter: overnight mrc, the production company behind "house of cards" said we are deeply troubled to learn about these new allegations concerning kevin spacey's interaction with members of the crew. the company revealed that one crew member did make a complaint against spacey for a specific remark and gesture in 2012 and mr. spacey willingly participated in a training process to resolve the issue. netflix had already suspended production on "house of cards" after recent accusations from actor anthony rapp who told buzzfeed that spacey made a sexual advance toward him when he was just 14 years old. spacey said he didn't remember the encounter with rapp but apologized for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior. his representative confirms spacey is now seeking unspecified treatment.
7:15 am
harvey weinstein could potentially face criminal charges on new rape allegations in new york. the nypd says they are investigating claims weinstein assaulted "boardwalk empire" actress on two occasions in 2010. the actress alleges the first assault happened after the movie mogul offered to dive her home. one inside her apartment she said he forced himself on her. the nypd has two active investigations going on foo weinstein. weinstein's representative says any allegations of nonconsensual sex are unequivocally denied about mr. weinstein. as for spacey, the agency that represented him and his public bliss have parted ways with the actor. the future of the show remains up in the air but the production company says they have now created an anonymous complaint hotline that they're providing counselors and legal advisers for all of the members of the crew. >> so far reaching. thank you, linsey. >> absolutely. thank you. thousand to the iphone

we're back with our big board. the debate always comes up this time of year should we keep daylight saving time all year long? i just said it wrong, didn't i, diane? >> saving. no "s." >> saving. not the "s" on the end. this weekend we turn our clocks back an hour. not everybody is a fan. diane macedo is here to explain so, diane, tell us what is going on? >> we know this whole process turn them ahead and back and can be disruptive. this panel in massachusetts is trying to do away with that and stay in this daylight saving time mode all year round but only if they can get neighboring states on board. the thing is, new hampshire, connecticut, maine, rhode island, all of these states are actually contemplating similar measures, so this is a possibility. keep in mind hawaii and most of arizona already does this so there are states that are moving in this direction or already there. but new york right now is
7:49 am
it's unlikely that new england will move in that direction because the idea of having boston and new york city in two separate time zones presents its own set of problems. >> i vote for new york to move it. this had a good idea behind it saving energy. >> it started that way as a wartime measure. world war i, world war ii and became permanent in the '70s during an energy crisis. now those problems don't really exist and so that's what fosters the debate. the whole idea is simply you delay sunset so you get more daylight in the evening when everyone is out of work. on the flip side if the sunset is later the sun is rising later so for people who are waking up early, that can be a problem because they're spending their morning in the dark and so that is sort of the flip side of the argue many and why people either want to or not do this fallback. >> really quick. daylight savings -- >> no "s." >> it became a thing and people started saying it that way but it's daylight saving time. >> it's either to say daylight saving time.

8:17 am
blockbuster movies like "rush hour" and "x-men: the last stand" is pushing back. six women accused him of inappropriate behavior including actresses olivia munn and natasha henstridge. ratner is now filing a defamation suit against melanie kohler who wrote a facebook post calling him a rapist. kohlerer's post has since been taken down but said he was a rapist on at least one night in hollywood about 12 years ago and he preyed on me as a drunk girl and forced himself upon me. ratner disputes that account. and now a spokesperson for kohlerer is firing back saying we always knew that they would pick one woman to victimize further in an effort to bully other women into silence. so our message to mr. ratner and his lawyer is short and simple. see you in court. and now a second woman has come forward accusing two-time oscar winner dustin hoffman of sexual harassment on the heels o
8:18 am
hoffman's apology for anything i might have done to cause a former production assistant to accuse him of sexual harassment when she was 17 years old working on the set of "death of a salesman" in 1985. >> i don't know why i can't stop myself. >> reporter: the second accuser, writer and producer, wendy riss says hoffman made unwanted sexual advances during a private pitch meeting. we did reach out to hoffman for comment but did not get a reply. he did issue a statement to the "hollywood reporter" after the first allegation saying i have the utmost respect for women and fear terrible anything i might have done could have hut her in an uncomfortable position. i am sorry. it is not reflective of who i am. >> thank you very much. our legal team dan abrams and sunny hostin are here. i like to say you're our dream team. >> thank you. >> okay, now other women have accused ratner, but he singles out this particular accuser. >> yeah. well, this is right out of the defense playbook. the best defense is a good offense so let's find the woman that's the lea
8:19 am
vulnerable. let's find the woman that perhaps can't afford a great attorney and let's sue that woman and that's what victims of sexual assault and abuse are most concerned about. they fear retaliation and they fear intimidation and i think this is just one intimidation tactic that's not going to work given the current climate. >> when you say that we just have this new abc news/"washington post" poll and four out of ten in that poll say they didn't report harassment in part because they fear retaliation. >> you know something really interesting. as a legal matter which is the statute of limitations is likely expired for her to do anything but he can now sue her. >> yeah. >> so meaning she can't take any legal action against him, but he can take legal action against her. >> i think that makes her claim more significant and makes her more credible. she's not suing for money or going to the police and saying he raped me. he is saying this is what happened to me too. >> this is going to be really hard. if you actually take this lawsuit seriously, right.
8:20 am
he's going to have to show it was false. it was defamatory and that she knew or should have known that it wasn't true. so basically that she knew that she was making it up. >> what kind of case does the accuser have to build? >> well, the best defense to a claim of -- dan's completely right. the best defense to a claim of libel defamation is the truth and so she has to show that she is telling the truth. now, given this current climate when more than six women have come out and said he did it to me too, i mean i don't think that that's a very difficult case to prove. >> he has the burden to prove it. meaning he's the mraf here so she doesn't have the burden to prove anything. all she's going to have to do is respond to the lawsuit and here's the danger for him, of course. is that in the context of the lawsuit, part of her defense is well this is a pattern and practice on his part. so i'd like to call in all of the other women. >> the one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. >> the list goes on. >> that's signic
8:21 am
believe he doesn't want this case to go to trial. meaning with all these other women out there, you know, it feels like a kind of statement by him more than an actual lawsuit, we'll see. i could be wrong. >> it's a very stale play. >> we'll see you on "the view." >> yes. >> we'll see you with live -- >> "live p.d." >> i didn't know i was getting a "live p.d." promo on a&e.
