7:04 am
innocently the man went to his plane. tsa hasn't given a specific reason why that second person didn't realize this was a suspicious bag that needed to be checked. >> again, the man has been released now, okay, david, thanks very much. the race for president now and the candidates facing off in tonight's big debate. donald trump and ben carson will be center stage again. a new poll shows they are neck and neck. last night trump giving a preview of the attacks carson may face. and trump will join us live in a moment. but first, abc's tom llamas is there in milwaukee for tonight's showdown. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the bate takes place here at the milwaukee theater and you're right. trump spoke in front of a huge crowd last night putting the pressure on dr. ben carson but this morning we've looked into the stories that he's been questioned abo and some are checking out. overnight, donald trump unleashing on dr. ben carson and the new scrutiny over carson's life sry.

7:06 am
to right. >> i do not remember this level of scrutiny for one president barack obama when he was running. in fact, i remember just the opposite. >> reporter: but as other candidateses say, th is all fair game, carson finding some support from senator marco rubio. >> i know everhing i need to know about ben carson. he came om a poor family with no advantages in life. he worked hard and became one of the world's most renowned neurosurgeons. >> reporter: the debate is tonight. it'll be two hours and starts at 9:00 eastern. there will be eight gop candidates on the main stage. governors christie and huckabee did not make it. so much focus going on with carson, unclear how much policy they'll be able to squeeze in. >> we ll see. let's talk to donald trump. right now. mr. trump, thank you for joining us. sounds like you're ready to tee off on ben carson tonight. >> no, not at all.
7:07 am
it' it'll be loose. i'll be very flexible. i ve no idea what's going to hahappen butt will be interesting. >> as we've seen in tom's piece right there, some of -- parts of carson's story are starting to check out. when i talked to him on sunday he said you jumped the gun on those stories and that calls into question whether you're fit to be commander in chief. if he repeats that tonight, how will you respond? >> well, i'll just simply say and mean it to the bottom, you know, the case was made ththat he went after his mother with a hammer. and he wananted to hit his mother over the head with a hammer. that he stabbed somemebody. that he hit somebody in the face with a lock. he smashed somebody's face with a lock, , with a plock and other things and i'm saying -- he's trying to justify this because he wants to be telling the truth and he's trying to justify it and then he said he's pathological. he has a pathological l temper o something. and he woe wrote thatimself in the book. an i'm trying to figure out you hit somebody in the face with a lock and go after your mother with a hammer, you do all of these things and you're trying to justify that, yes, you did them andhat's supposed to make you credible.
7:08 am
>> it's a very strange situation. >> heard the word hammer several titimes in yr answer. want to ask you about an abc news poll that just is out today. you and ben carson at the top of most polls right now and both doing quite well with republican voters, high favorability but when it goes to the general election voters, he's doing much better than you. he's got a 50% favorility. you're only at 38% and 59% unfavorable for you. how do you explain that and anything you can do about it? >> well, sure, you do a lot about itnce you start runng and once you start focusing on that. zogby came out with a poll where i'm at 30 to 17 against ben. and i beat hillary head to head in number rouse polls. but that's a different group of folks. right now i'm dealing with republicans. >> you're also dealing with china in an op-ed in "the wall street journal" today you say it's time to tell the truth on china but critics say the policies you're calling for will spark trade war that will backfire on the united states. how do you respond? >> what's a trade war? we're losing $400 billion a year
7:09 am
imlance. they're killing us and in every respt. and they're currency manipulators. and they're beating us with their currency manipulation and other things. so when you say trade war, they've got a trade war against us. they beat us at every front. we have people literally that have no clue and if you look at what china is doing step by step by step, i mean, trade war, sure, you won't even have a trade war. china has taken so much money out of the united states, so many jobs, so much of our base that trade war, i don't think you'll have one, frankly, because they can't afford a trade war. >> we saw last week unemployment down to 5%. there's a debate about the economy tonight. federal reserve almost certain to raise rates. is that the right move? >> it is the right move but the unemployment is not 5%. the unployment is probably close to 20%. if you look at all the people out there that want to get jobs that have given up, you're talking about unemployment that's actually close to 2. the world is not happy.
7:10 am
you know, you talked about my big crowd at the arena last night. it was -- in illinois, it was unbelievable. believe me, if real unemployment was at 5% i wouldn't have had 10,000 people at that arena last night. >> finally, mr. trump, who else is in the hot seat tonight? >> i think everybody. i mean, look, it's a contest. it's a very interesting set of characters. everybody has a very different point of view and i think it's going to be an interesting time tonight. i look forward to it. >> we do, too. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much, george. >> let's talk to matt dowd about this. how do you explain this, donald trump, ben carson holding on strong at the top of the polls right mow? anything can bring them down? >> i think what explains their strength their authenticity so who they are, they seem genuine and their stories and all that. in the end that's what could bring them down if it bears out their stories and what they stand foris not authentic, the cracks would drag them down immediately. the other thing i think they'll have to prove tonight especially is that people can see them as
7:11 am
commander in chief. they like them. they like their message. there is a question about whether the voters can see them as commander in chief. >> will they get pressed for details on their policy. what are you watching for? >> subplots. will jeb go after marco rubio in the course of this? will donald trump and ben carson engage in the midst of this? and i think the ted cruz is in an interesting position tonight because i don't think he has an opportunity to bash the refs. so what will he do? >> some talk of f ted cruznd jeb bush double-teaming marco rubio. >> i think it would be a mistake by them to go after marco rubio. marco rubio is a young guy with a great story. i think they're better off letting the merators do the work instead of them doing it. >> let's see what happens. matthew dowd, thanks for being here. later this week, i'll head to washington fornxclusive interview with president obama. we'll bring that to you friday right here on "gma." robin. >> all right, major health news. an important new study on blood pressure that can save lives affecting at least 17 million americans. abc's dr. richard besser is here and these are dramatic findings, rich.
7:12 am
the big question for people with high blood pressure has always been, if you're going to treat it, how low do you go? people at high risk for heart disease, the target was always 140 or 150 for that top number. what they wanted to see here is what happens if you bring that all the way town to 120? so the researchers did a study, half the people went for the current rget of 140, half at 120 and studied 9,000 people. all over 50, no diabetes and they were all at risk for heart disease. they had to stop the study early because there was a 25% reductioin bad outcomes like heart attack, stroke or deaths from heart disease. >> lowering it by 20 points. medication is what led to that reduction? >> exactly. >> side effects, you know, when you talk about medication, is the 20-point difference worth h the side effects? >> there was a trade-offff so to get it down that low on average people had to be on three
7:13 am
to get it to the 140 level, it was two medications and there was a slight increase in e.r. visits for a number of things for low blood pressure, fofor inting thoh there was no difference in falls and kidney injuries so there was a bit of a trade-off there. >> what are your recommendations? >> there are 17 million people who may benefit from that. a lot of people. talk to your doctor to see if the benefits outweigh the risks. but there are so many things people can do to bring down their blood pressure without medication. so maintaining their weight. regular physical activity. making sure they're getting good sleep. keeping the salt out with ose processed foods. those things could take care of some of this or make it easier to control. >> all of this is encouraging, all right, rich, thank you very much. dr. besser will be taking your questions throughout the morning. you can tweet him @drrichardbesser. or post you questions to our "gma" facebook page. snow, hail, rain and it's moving east and, ginger, so many are on the lookout for a blizzard this morning. >> so ma. you've got to see the numbers. first, san francisco, california, pictures of the thunderstorms that rolled through the bay area. that is the golden gate bridge

7:31 am
many people want to know how are you doing, jonathan? how is your health? you went seven days without eating. >> first of all, robin, thank you f for having me and thank you for having us, i brought the members of concerned students 1950. the original organizing group. and, yeah, i really didn't w want this to be about the hunger trike. although it was unfortunate that had to come to such a drastic measure. the real issue is the campus climate and all the issues that our students are facing. in terms of me healthwise, i'm smiling. i got my friends with me so i'm so appreciative of them. they've been such a great support network and definitely after the hospital visit i got checked out so i'm doing well. >> i'm glad that you are doing well. you talk about the measures that you took and that you called the condititions t on campus the words you used was unlivable. can you describe more what you were talkingabout? >> yeah, the campus climate here at the university of missouri has been unlivable since i was
7:32 am
here as an undergraduate student so started here in 2008. and in my first semester i had individuals write the "n" wordd on my wall and had white students who were literally physically assaulting me. the campus culture here is not welcoming to people who a of the majority identity. >> and what do you think of the measures that the university say they arere now goi to take? they're going to establish a chief diversity officer, they're going to review their policies. is that enough? >> honestly, i am slightly disasappointedith the measures. i was definitely expecting more. i say that one because all those measures have been outlined by faculty, students and staff who have been doing activism on campus for years and so these are things we've been suggesting so i was looking for something a little bit more new a and me innovative and also more substantial. i do acknowledge it's a step in the right direction. just promises or words to calm us down as students but really campus. >> inow you don't want this to
7:33 am
be symbolic. you don't want 9 hunger strike or theresident stepping down to b symbolic but further measures. what exactly is it thatt youre looking for and your classmates? >> for me i'm looking for respect. there's a lot of things i'm looking for but when you look at the values of the university, you respect responsibility, discovering excellence, the fact that we can have different differing identies background, lifestyles et cetera is okay. we're not expecting everyone to 100% agree with what we're doing or 100%gree with our lifestyle but demand they respect our differences and our differences in humanity. >> jonathan, the entire football team a and coaching staff stood united. they said they were one with you and this cause. what did that mean to you? >> that honestly meant the world toe so it was powerful for em to use their millions of dollar platform to advococate for cial ange. >> the team and coaches said they were concerned about you and that's what their focus was and making sure that you were
7:34 am
have you heard from other students on other campuses? >> absolutely. the outpour for concerned student 1950 in general has been amazing. so many campuses are facing so many similar things and so i think it's really powerful to continue to fight for change. >> you have received, you and others there overwlming support but there are others that are saying, hunger strike, forcing a resignation, is that the best way to bring about change, jonathan? some people are asking that >> i would refrain the question in instances like ask yourself why did we have to get to that place? i think that's the most important question to ask. if people did their research they would understand that for years upon years we've been writing letters. we've tried almost every method of c communicaon and we're not being heard. >> it's important for meme to know, i know this has been going on as you said for some time and the measures you took before this took place. jonathan butler, thank you very much and all the students that

are joining you there on the campus at mizzou. we wish everyone there all the best going forward. thank you. >> thank you so much, robibin. >> and the president when he resigned president wolfe said he was resigning out of love, not hate and that he was hoping that this -- that the healing process could beg there at mizzou. >> we hope we can see real change. he set a powerful example that student. this box of cheerios may be on your table right now. but this morning one group is saying its name is misleading. we'ltell you why. to do great things, sometimes you gotta break the rules. surface pro 4. a new screen for new perspectives. a new pen for new w masterpies. new speakers for a new sound. we reinvented the surface pro.
