7:05 am
>> on twitter and on tv trump is telling people cruz is a natural born canadian. cruz dismissing that as a side show and launching his attacks showing trump is no true conservative. this morning there's no mistake how donald trump feels about the man hoping to beat him in iowa. senator ted cruz. >> look, the truth is he's a nasty guy. >> trump telling george cruz is a hypocrite for railing against big banks even though he took loans from them to fund his campaign which the fec safes he failed to properly report. >> he wants to look like robin hood. he's the one protecting people from the banks but he's borrowing money and not disclosing it which is illegal. >> cruz sticking with his attack that trump embodies new york values tweeting out a link from the 1999 trump interview. >> i'm very pro-choice and it may be a bit of a new york

7:07 am
dowd. let's start with the trump/cruz battle. down to the wire in iowa. trump releefrs ase ing the attacks and cruz suggesting trump is a liberal. who is getting the better of this argument? >> george, it's gone from stand by me to gangs of new york in the course of three days. i think in the end no one benefits from this. but i think that donald trump comes out the winner, he starts ahead in every single state except for iowa. the other person i think that might benefit from this is marco rubio. he's out of the battle and fire and he may be able to rise a little in the establishment lane. but right now i think the cruz/trump fight doesn't benefit either one. >> how about the democratic debate last night. >> i think everybody did fine. i think hillary stood well in the course of this. i think what's going to change this race is iowa. we saw that in 2008 the caucus results in iowa, barack obama

months and wouldn't let him go. wouldn't stop. >> i know there are a lot of people you would like to thank for helping with jason's release. >> there's so many folks out there. first and foremost is the post. jason's other colleagues have been so supportive of him. and then like reporters without borders and the press club. there have been hundreds of thousands of people that have put their support out for jason and he's actually really only starting to see that right now. he's been able to watch it on tv and seeing the reporting. he really didn't know what was going on. i mean, 18 months with maybe the last 6 months being able to watch iranian state tv. in the world. >> so hard to imagine and so many all over the world grateful for his release. what do you say to the critics bad precedent for the united states? >> i'm happy to have my brother home. i haven't looked at the details of the deal.
