this morning. you's be talking to donald trump in a moment. first abc's tom llamas starts us off with the details on what donald trump said and what is being dade about him. good morning. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. trump's plan comes at an interesting point in the campaign. two polls out of iowa show a very different race, one with trump on top. the other with senator cruz in first place. but now with this plan, the headlines only have one name, trump. for those that couldn't believe it or didn't understand, overnight donald trump said it loud and clear. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: trump arguing because of national sesecurity, muslims are no longer welcome in america. >> we have no idea who's coming into your country. we have no idea if they love us or if they hate us. we have no idea if they want to bomb us. >> reporter: and trump promising if elected some muslims in the u.s. will feel the pressure.
7:03 am

7:04 am
it ridiculous. >> this is the kind of thing people say when they have no experience and don't know what they're talking about. >>eporter: and on the other side hillary clinton also weighing in putting out this tweet last night, this is reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive. donald trump, you don't get it. this makes us less safe. but we should also note david brody who covers politics for the christian broadcasting network predicting trump's pl numbers will go up because of this plan >> we will see and let's talk to mr. trump himself. he joins us on the phone. you've heard that chorus of condemnation not only from hillary clinton but a lot of republicans as well including the chair of the new hampshire republican party, she says it's unrepublican, unconstitutional, unamerican. do you have any second thoughts at all you may have gone too far. >> first of all she's a bush person and she's wants to see bush and bush willrash like no one h ever seen before.
7:05 am
we've had calls in, thousands and thousands of people. you saw last night we were on a ship. there were thousands of people there. there were thousands of people outside that couldn't get in and, franankly, it was a standing ovation that wouldn't stop. the people and you did polls. people -- interviewed the people th heard my speech last night and they just want to see something happen. >> so no second thoughts -- >> we had the preworld trade center -- a lot forget they tried tolow it up twice. we had so many oth incidents and now the last incident in california, now it turnsns out that $28,000 was deposited this punk's safety account probably given by some people that we are ghting, something has to be done. if you look at what i'm saying -- >> let me stotop you right there. let me stop you. tell us how it's going to work if you indeed are going to get 24 done. unlikelyt could pass congress
7:06 am
even if it did likely to be found unconstitutional so how will you do this. >> i'm calling very simply for a shutdown of muslims entering the united states and here's a key until our country's representatatives c figure out what is going on. they don't know. >> how would you stop them from entering the united states? >> the other night with a speech that nobody still knows, i tweeted out, is that all there is? he didn't say anything. we have people in this country that want to blow up our country. you know it and so do i. ththe pol have come out and various polls i quoted were 2525% of those polls agreed t that the violence against americans here in the united states is justified. and they're looking at the jihad and they want a global jihad. now, george, we can take it sitting back, you will have many more world trade center, it'll only get worse. you look a paris, you know, i'm not t talng about the horrible carnage that took place, paris
7:07 am
is no longer the same city. they he areas in p paris whe the police refuse to go to. you go there because it's so dangerous -- >> i understand what you're saying, sir. >> we don't want that for our country, george. >> we have to figure it out. >> tell me how this is going to work. if an american citizen travels overseasas, they're muslim, they cannot come back. >> no, they can come back we're talking about all -- this is not only -- if aerson is a muslim, goes overseas and comes back they can come back. they're a citizen. that's different but we ha to figure things out. we -- look at this case of the bombing and the kiing, the carnage where he had bombs all over his apartment andnd people knew it and they didn't want to call the police. they knew there was a problem because they didn't want to racially profile hi now, i actually don't believe that. i think these people knew what was going on. i think they are using that as an excuse. they didn't want to racially -- did you ever hear of anything so stupid?
7:08 am
they didn't want to call the police -- >> you keep telling -- profile. look, george, we have problems in this country. we have people that want tolow up ourur buildings, our cities and we have to figure out what's going on. not good. >> you're still not telling -- >> i will tell you this proposal has been met by intelligent people with great popularity. now, george, let me just finish off by saying, it is a period of time, it's until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> well, the question is how would they figure out what wa goingn and how would you know that people are muslims that are coming into the country and it's not on any passport in the world and you have a lotf support, cover of "the philadelphia daily news." new furor over donald trump showing you raising your hand in
7:09 am
and from t council, are we talking internment camps, the final solution to the muslim question? i feel like i'm back in the the '30s. you're increasingly being compared to hitler. does that give you pause? >> no, because what i'm doing iss no different than fdr. his solution f german, italian, japanese, you ow, many years -- >> you're for internment camps. >> this is a president highly respected by all, he d thehe same thing, if you look at what he was doing, it was far worse, i mean, he was talking about the germans because we're at war. we are now at war. we have a president that doesn't want to say that, but we are now at war. >> i've got to press you on that, sir. you're praising fdr there. i take it you're praising the setting up of internmnment camps for japanese in world war ii. >> no, i'm not. take a look at presidential
7:10 am
having to do with alien german, ien italian, alien japanese and what they did. you know, they stripped them of their naturalization proceedings. they went through a whole list of things, they couldn't go five miles from their homes. they weren't allowed t use radios, flashlights. i mean, you know, take a look at what fdr did many years ago and he's one of the most highly respected presidents by -- i mean respected by most people. named highways after him. >> you want to bring back positives like that? >> no, i don't want to bring it back, george, at all. i don't like doing it at all. it's a temporary measure until our representatives, many of whom are grossly incompetent, until our representatives can figure out what'soing on. we just had a case where people, many people were killed. we're going to have many more cases like that. we had somebody in this country that shouldn'te here -- she came in. he came in. they were radicalized. they were look at doing
7:11 am
something miraculously yesterday they found $28,000 just put into his account. just put into his account. he was paid a lot of money just put -- where did tt money come from, george? i'll bet you will be surised to find out where. there are many, many other peoplele like h in this country righ now. >> more than 25% of the world are muslims. aren't you concerned at all you'll make the united states a pariah nation and play right into isis' hands. >> george, if you look at paris, france, if y look at london, if you look at some of these cities where they had open arms, you can't even -- paris is a good example. not only the carnage, take a look at paris, the realaris is a different paris than the city of lights that you read about. they have areas in paris where it is so radicalized and so vicious, i told you, that the police refuse to go there. they will not go there. that's what's going to happen with our country. >> so one more time, n no second thoughts, any muslimoming to
7:12 am
the united states is banned for now until the united states can figure out how this is going -- how long do you expect this to -- >> i hope it will go quickly. i hope we can figure it out but we have to look at people. we have to use vigilance in our couny or we'll have many more world trade centers and our country will never be the same. we will have many more world trade centers as sure a as you a sitting there our country will never be the same and you just said it, until ourcountry's representatives can figure out what is going on, we have no choice but to do this, george. >> donald trump,p, tnk you for ur time this morning. >> thank you very much >> george, we'll bring in abc's martha raddatz on this, martha, you just heard what donald trump was saying, standing firmly hind what he said about not allowing any muslims t enterr the u.s. how do you feel this will impact the election. >> donald trump has said so many things that people believe are outrageous and think the remarks will do him in and yet his poll numbers have risen but i don't think he's been as strongly
7:13 am
criticized by nearly all candidates as he has been on these comments but look at last nigh he was cheered by his supporters. he is touching a chord with them and playing into their fears. >> george touched on this with donald trump. you are our chief global affairs correspondent. you travel the world. this is going to have an impact globally, will it not? >> reporter: it is, worldwide reaction from leading muslim organizations around the wld this morning is, frankly, shog and outrage. words like disgraceful, racist are being hurled back at trump. there are also questions about how in the world he could make this happen, as george said, if he were president. would he keep muslims s sports teams out of the country? how about malala yousafzai shot in the face by the taliban who's been fighting for girls' education, or had you about king abdullah from jordan who is fighting isisis, experts will tell
7:14 am
you this plays right into what isis wants, the more muslims feel alienated the more isis feels they can recruit them. the more that america appears to be targeting muslims not just radical muslims, you can be sure isis would put that in their social media campaign, robin. >> all right, maha, we certainly haven't heard the last from this. >> yeah, you have got to believe this is aefining moment in the campaign, r revererberaonsor months but as you say not backing down at all. we turn to the investigation to the husband and wife terrorist, the fbi is grilling the friend and neighbor who bought their high-powered peps and tracking that suspicious activity in the killer's bank account that trump mentioned. >> federal authorities tell abc news they are pursuing leads that could result i charges being brought against other possible accomplices in the attack and examining an unusually large deposit made into farook's bank account in the weeks before the attacks. the fbi says it has surveillance tape of the two killers taking
7:15 am
around the los angeles area. >> that target practice in one occasion was done within days of this event. >> reporter: an instructor at this rank said the fbi seized surveillance tape of syed farook shooting his assault rifle on his own. >> he was here by himself. he came to shohootis . >> reporter: but farook's wife was also well practiced. authorities say the way she fired her weapon at police from the back of this suv showed great proficiency in handling her assault rifle. the fbi says there is no doubt farookok and tashfeen malik had made their plans to attack well in advance. >> we have learned and believe that both subjects were radicalized and have been for quite some time. >> reporter: officials say the most important lead now involves the man they say provided the couple with these two assault rifles. enrique marquez, a former security guard and convert to islam was questioned for much of the day monday by the fbi about the guns and about whether he knew in advance about the
7:16 am
planned attacks. >> our major concern is determining how those firearms, the rifles in particular,, got from marquez to farook and malik. firearms at present are a at the fbi laborator where the fbi i performing forensic examination on them. >> reporter: authorities tell abc news marquez was questioned r much of the day monday and has provided information not previously known to the fbi about farookknd his intentions. marquez's wife is also under scrutiny. a russian emay whose sister married into the farook familyly. bothives appear to have come herender that controversial fiancee visa program. >> what about that deposit. >> the working theory that it may have been used to fund the attack. >> let's go to amy with the morning's other top stories starting with more trouble for the police this chicago. >> another disturbing video from chicago police has been now made public. this one showing officers using a stun gun on a man inside a cell and then dragging him down

8:07 am
undertaking, long overdue, but it's really one-stop shopping for doctors and then hopefully patients about how to take care of the whole woman. >> what do the guidelines address, jen? >> literally head to toe because we have to remember it is a wholperson approach here so starting at the head, body image, depression, anxiety, there is specific focus on nutrition in women who have survived breast cancer and then we're working our way down the body. heart failure because of the chemotherapeutic agents can lead to problems with the heart. bone issues, sexual health, menopausal symptoms. i mean, this is really patient centered care, a holistic approach, if you will, and it's about treating the whole woman and not just a body part. >> and how about the guidelines for screening post -- >> right. so you're asking about surveillance. >> yeah, because there's always a big debate. i hesitate because there's always a big debate about this. >> this is the 800-pound gorilla in the room and they did make recommendations on that and said for womemen who suived breast cancer they are looking for two things, local recurrence, a return of the breast cancer in
8:08 am

8:09 am
the studies that we always report here at abc, they focus on survival or death or mortality because that's the most important thing but we've gotten so much better at treating breast cancer that now we also need to pay attention to quality of life because if you survive breast cancer but you en die of a fractured hip or heart failure or you have a poor quality of life, we haven't succeeded, soo this is going t to brin attention to all those issue. >> that's why we want to be thrivers, not survivors, survivors seem like you're just hanging on. men, i always hear breast cancer affects them as well but they weren't in the study. >> no, and we need to pay more attention to men with breast cancer, absolutely. >> all right. and we're going to -- jen will take all your questions all morning on facebook and twitter. you can tweet her @drjashton. or post your questions on "good morning america's" facebookk page. amy. >> thank you so much for that. i know we have each other to talk but it's so great to have guidelines for women on how to live with a new normal let's move on now to the christmas season, the holiday season. we have a look at the future of shopping online. sales are soaring this holiday season.

8:15 am
opportunity to kind of create a doll that had brown skin and natural hair and w was directing her own movie, that was an incredible opportunity. >> i love the chair. >> yeah. >> love it. >> did you have a lot of input into how your barbie looked and what she's wearing and her props? >> yeah, the natural hairstyle was very important to me. i think that's something that should be celebrated. the differences in all of us, so much rhetoric about kind of collapsing who we are, it's about expansion and celebrating everyone and then the chair was my favorite thing because it took me a long time to earn that chair. >> yeah. >> and so i wanted every girl and d boy to he one. >> i love that, ava. you know, barbie was originally created by ruth handler. that was in 1959. she wanted her daughter to play with a toy that enabled h to make her own choices, so 60 years later your doll continuing this message. how doou feel about being a part of this big dream message? >> you know, i mean, everyone should be able to see themselveses and so that's really what my point is in doing this.
8:16 am
storytelling and our imagination is something that should be embraced and widened, expanded and so that's what i'm hoping this does, changes the view of who we think a director can be, changes the view of who we think a barbie should look like. >> absolutely. >> could you run for president, please with your inclusive thinking? >> no, ma'am. no, ma'am. >> and this sounds like the perfect holiday gift if you could get one. i ow you tweeted, ava, you're surprised that t your barsold out. you wrote, #whoa. #bananas. #nuts. so any more be made available? >> i don't think s it was a limited run. it was only supposed to be one doll but it was a short run. a celebration but a good thing. i'm happy about it. >> ava for president. congratulations. thanks for popping in to "pop news." >> thank you. have a good morning. >> thank you. >> oh, man. fantastic message. >> we want more. yeah, it's a really great
