2015. >> 2015? you mean we're in the future? >> more than a million people heading back to the future today at parties across the country. >> great scott! >> as we take a look at what the movie got right back in 1989 and those that missed the mark so join us as we go back in time. ♪ got to get back in time >> because the future starts today. and good morning, america. happy wednesday, back to the future day. so much fun to look back and see where they thought our world would be. this prediction will be a bit tougher. back in 1989 they thought the cubs would win the world series. >> still possible. >> yes, it's still possible. >> the news made the headline on the front page of "usa today." we got a mock-up here and said we had a female president. did i see a delorean outside. >> i think you might have seen a
7:02 am
delorean. we will have fun with that. breaking political helds. paul ryan makes a big decision with conditions. no decision yet from joe biden but he's raising eyebrows with those comments about the bin laden raid. donald trump joins us live after jon karl starts us off. good morning, jon. >> good morning, george. with all eyes on vice president biden's possible presidential run, last night it was a former candidate for vp who took center stage, paul ryan has insisted for weeks that he does not want to be speaker of the house, but he now says he will run if his republican colleagues agree to some conditions. with his party and congress now in disarray, paul ryan now says he's willing to run for speaker of the house. >> this is a very dire moment. not just for congress, not just for the republican party but for our country. and truly be a unifying figure, then i will gladly serve. >> reporter: but ryan has conditions. he says he'll only take the top job if he can keep weekends off
7:03 am
with his family and if his entire party unites behind him by the end of the week. >> but we need to do this as a team and it needs to include fixes that ensure that we do not experience constant leadership challenges and crises. >> reporter: while the former vp candidate says he's willing to run for speaker they're waiting for the current vp to see if he will run for president. biden raised eyebrows saying for the first time he advised president obama to go forward with the 2011 raid that took out osama bin laden. >> i told him my opinion, that he thought he should go but follow his own instincts. >> reporter: that directly corrects what biden said in the past that obama courageously went ahead despite the misgivings of his closest advisers including himself. >> ladies and gentlemen, i said wait another seven days for the following information.
7:04 am
>> i wanted him to take one more day to do one more test to see if he was there. >> reporter: and there's news this morning on the republican presidential race, it's familiar news, george. a new abc news/"washington post" poll once again puts donald trump way out in front, 32% of republican leading voters, 22% for ben carson. marco rubio the only other candidate in double digits. george, donald trump has dominated the republican field for three solid months despite all those predictions of his demise trump doesn't seem to be going anywhere but up. >> let's talk to him right now. thank you, jon karl. donald trump joins us by phone. mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. that poll shows the republicans think you're most likely to get the nomination by a wide margin, 42%. that's shaking up some in the republican establishment. there's a story in "the washington examiner." they get ready for war against trump saying they'll do whatever it takes to defeat you. are you willing to do whatever
7:05 am
it takes to win? >> first of all it's an honor to have such a wonderful poll. a nice thing to wake up and see and i will say that i will fight for it. we want to make our country great again. we want to make america great again. we want to just do things that can be done and there's so many things to be done, politicians, they're all talk, they're no action and it's just not working and that's why i'm getting those kind of numbers. people know i can do the job. >> these groups like the club for growth say they'll spend big money to bury you in early states with attack ads. are you willing to reach into your pockets and spend back, how deep. >> as you know the club for growth came up to my office, asked me for a misdemeanor dollars. i laughed at them. i never even heard of them. i laughed and then they left my office after that. wrote me a letter and left my office and did an ad. you are know, negative ads. so, you know, these aren't legitimate people and these are the kind of people we have in politics. >> jeb bush striking back again much you've been in quite a feud with him in "the national
7:06 am
review" he says he attacks my brother. it's yet another example of his dangerous views on national security issues. donald trump simply doesn't know what he's talking about." >> well, look, jeb has had a very hard time. he's way down in the polls. he's embarrassed by what's happening and has to attack me to try to get his numbers up. i don't think it's going to work but the last thing we need is another bush. we've seen what happens and the last thing we need is another bush. and he understands that and the voters understand that and, you know, to compare plea to michael moore is a first. that one hasn't happened before. >> his brother, george w. bush is out there, reports at his fund-raiser struck out at ted cruz for opportunistically embracing you says he doesn't like the guy. is that what ted cruz is doing, embracing you for an opportunity? >> ted's been very nice. he's been amazingly respectful. he agrees with most of my positions, if not all my positions and, you know, we had a very good relationship, so i don't know if you call that embracing. he respects what i'm saying.
7:07 am
i think that's nice. >> you think he could una challenge to you. >> i don't know. i mean i really don't know. i'm just going to put my head -- you know, i've won many times in my life. that's what i like to do is win and that's why the voters see me as somebody that can turn our country around. our country is in serious trouble. we lose all the time. whether it's isis or whether it's 19 trillion in debt, you know, we're losing all the time, whether it's trade deals, no matter what it is, we lose. look at the new iran pact negotiated by incompetent people and the public is tired of it. >> paul ryan says he'll willing to be speaker if republicans meet his conditions and unify behind him. you have differences with him on immigration, social security and medicare. does he have your support? >> well, i like him very much as a person. i don't like his -- you know, the issues you mentioned and certainly he has been weak on immigration and i'm very strong on immigration. had we had strong immigration, you know, my policies, you may not have had the world trade
7:08 am
center coming down and the attack. those people, some of them were here illegally, they were here under a very weak visas and so i feel very strongly about immigration and we have to be strong on illegal immigration. he is not there. with that being said, if he's a unifying force whatever it's going to take because they have to unite, the republicans have to unite as a party. >> donald trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much, george. well now to break news, extraordinary pictures of a secret meeting, take a look at syrian leader bashar al assad and russian president vladimir putin, assad sneaking out of his country as he fights a civil war against u.s.-backed rebels and isis. abc's alex marquardt is in the region with the very latest on that story. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, amy. well, president assad is already back in syria after this meeting that took everybody by surprise. it's remarkable because it's the first time that assad has left syria during this war that has
7:09 am
now lasted almost five years. it shows real confidence by putin and assad in the middle of this conflict that has left around 250,000 syrians dead. now, of course, the u.s. has said that assad has no role in the future of syria because of everything he's done to his people, the u.s. has long backed the rebels that are looking to oust him. the same rebels that putin is now targeting with his air force in syria. so this meeting is russia saying to the u.s. and to the world that assad isn't going anywhere. assad -- amy. >> all right, alex marquardt with the latest on that disturbing story. >> we'll turn to that hunt for a killer in new mexico. police searches for the shooter in a tragic road rage encounter that left a 4-year-old girl dead from a gunshot wound and ryan owens has the latest. >> reporter: good morning. that tragedy unfolded on the highway behind me. two cars kept cutting each other off and it ended in gunfire. >> the daughter is not conscious. she's going to be 4 years of
7:10 am
age. >> reporter: what appears to be a single bullet hole in the windshield of the parent's pickup truck, one of the few pieces of evidence police have in their hunt for the child's killer. the person behind a deadly act of road rage along this albuquerque highway. >> we're starting to see this throughout our nation and this is something that should not be happening in albuquerque, new mexico. let alone anywhere else in the united states. >> reporter: police say it happened around 3:00 tuesday afternoon. the two vehicles driving west along interstate 40. >> the cars are both moving one car pulled up against the other car and started firing rounds into that vehicle. >> reporter: an off-duty sheriff's deputy arriving on scene first finding the 4-year-old wounded girl and her distraught parents. the child rushed to a local hospital where she later died. >> i'm going to need freeway shut down. >> reporter: police brought the interstate to a halt for several hours pulling over cars matching the various descriptions from
7:11 am
witnesses. sweeping the area for a suspect. no luck. >> we go have a suspect vehicle we're looking for. i can't release the information at this time because there's conflicting stories about what we're looking for. >> reporter: this morning the police chief here pleading for witnesses to come forward. >> we are begging for the community's help. we need to rise up as a community and say, enough is enough. >> and unfortunately the police chief really is as desperate as he sounds. he says descriptions of the killer's car are everything from two door, four door, various colors, they ned a lot of help. >> ryan, thanks so much for the late latest. a major development for women in the battle against breast cancer, the american cancer society is out with new guidelines for mammograms. abc's dr. richard besser is here and, rich, this headline causing a lot of confusion and a lot of concern. >> yeah, you know, i understand the confusion. take a look at this. there's several guidelines out from different groups. the ob/gyns and radiologists
7:12 am
recommend starting at 40. the american cancer society, it's their first revision in 12 years and say start at age 45. what they say is women age 40 to 44 should have screening based on personal choice. at 45, it's annual. and then starting at age 55, mammogram every other year. and then in addition, they are no longer recommending that your doctor or nurse do an annual breast exam. what they said was that's picking up changes that aren't cancer and leading to treatment that's not necessary. >> and, rich, going off of that point, most people know that i was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40 from a mammogram and so for women like me or women who are afraid they're going to be me, the big question is why. early desection saves lives. is it suggesting it doesn't save enough lives? >> what they're trying to balance is saving lives and reducing harm. and when they looked at the data, they said that for a woman of average risk, 45 is that cut
7:13 am
point. but they're still leaving choice so a woman can start having screening at age 40. for women at higher risk, anyone who has a family history of breast cancer, who may have a genetic mutation like brca or x-ray radiation treatment as a child, starting earlier and more often is the way to go. >> 40 to 44, it's your choice but the big question is will this affect your act to have insurance cover those mammograms starting at an earlier age if you want to have that. >> it shouldn't. yeah, it shouldn't because the insurance is based off the government recommendation and when they recommended age 50, congress said, no, you have to pay starting at age 40 so it won't change that. it may change what some doctors recommend for you, however but you do have that choice. >> let's hope the access is still there for all women who want it. dr. besser, thank you so much and i know that a lot of people have questions. you will be taking those questions on "gma" facebook page and on your twitter account, dr. richard besser. we turn to those church fires in st. louis. six predominantly black churches
7:14 am
damaged in the past two weeks and alex perez is in st. louis with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. i want to show you some of the damage. the front of this church completely blackened by the flames. son-in-law of the siding even melting from the building. authorities believe one person may be responsible for all of the incidents. this morning, investigators are scrambling searching for a serial arsonist believed to be responsible for setting fires to at least six churches. the churches targeted all just outside st. louis located within three miles of each other. each fire starting at the front doors, each one set in the dead of night. >> it is arson. these are being intentionally set. >> reporter: though different denominations the congregations mostly black complicated racial tensions in an area still recovering from the riots following the 2014 police involved shooting death of unarmed teenager michael brown. this church forced to hold services on their front lawn because of fire damage to the
7:15 am
building. >> very similar type fires, so they are very suspicious. it could be considered a hate crime. >> reporter: and authorities now this morning hoping someone who saw something may help lead them to an arrest. george. >> okay, alex, thanks. to tom llamas with today's other top stories. a deadly police shooting in new york. >> that's right, george. new york city is mouring the loss of another police officer, the fourth murdered in the last 11 months. randolph holder and his partner confronting a robbery super bowl when there was an exchange of gunfire. randolph shot in the head. he was just 33. the suspect is in custody. near atlanta, dash cam video shows this officer shooting 13 times at a suspect, police say the man who was wanted on drug charges had pulled a gun, he died in the shooting. the officer is on leave pending the investigation. and check out this video, a dramatic moment off the coast of alaska. a sailor was in trouble after his boat broke down in 20-foot seas. a nearby ship came to his
7:16 am
rescue. watch as the sailor actually with his cat tucked inside his jacket jumps into the rescue ship. he made that jump despite 50-mile-per-hour winds. pretty brave. all right. and a surprise this morning in "consumer reports" annual car ratings it found the best brands for reliability are lexus, toyota, audi, mazda and subaru but this jyrki ya also made the list beating out honda. pretty surprising. finally an amazing scenario that could come full circle tonight, the cubs are now one game away from having their world series dreams dashed and lost to the mets 5-2 and now trail the series 3-0. coincide coincidentally it's on the date this date october 21st, 2015 when the movie "back to the future ii" predicted the cubs would win the world series in a sweep. the cubs do play tonight but could lose in a sweep, one more fact in the movie, they actually played miami. at the time miami didn't even have a baseball team. now they have two world series
7:17 am
championships since then. piling on the cubs. >> you're smiling. >> it could still happen, ginger. you're right. >> keeping hope alive. >> yes. >> thanks, tom. from chicago. see how far one man went to make his flight creating a serious security problem. that's in just 30 seconds. coming up on 7:18 with a man who ran under the tarmac after the door closed on his flight. our aviation correspondent david kerley at reagan national airport with the story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. a serious safety issue. take a look at these pictures of this man running after the plane.
7:18 am
that man running on the tarmac must have stunned the tug driver pushing back the united jetliner in denver. the would-be passenger carrying a bag stops the tug, insists he be let on to the jetliner. >> i have never had a passenger try to chase down an airplane i was flying nor have i seen this happen. >> mark raymer was late to the gate. the doors were closed. he went through an emergency door, down the tarmac and started his mad dash. airport workers quickly surround the man so that the jet can't continue. on monday, raymer pleaded guilty to tampering for the august incident sentenced to two years' probation, 100 hours of community service. >> this is a crime and it has to be treated that way because it's simply too dangerous out there. >> reporter: while this was an unusual tarmac breach it's not the only one we've seen from the teenage stowaway who jumped a fence in san jose and to drivers some impaired by drugs or alcohol busting through fences and driving near aircraft. as for raymer's reason,
7:19 am
according to reports he was heading to his 40th high school reunion and apparently didn't want to miss it. we called raymer, he didn't want to talk to us so, george and amy, we don't know if he ever made it to his reunion. >> can't blame him for not wanting to talk. we have an abc exclusive. an single mother of four stranded six days, speaking out and suing general motors. a real-life ferris bueller. teens who hacked into their school's computers all coming up. you probably say it a million times a day. ahh... ahh! ahh... ahh! but at cigna, we want to help everyone say it once a year. say "ahh". >>ahh... cigna medical plans cover one hundred percent of your in-network annual checkup. so america, let's go. know. ahh! and take control of your health. cigna. together, all the way.

8:17 am
and down. it's really a combination of those three things that contribute to aging of the neck. >> all right, so we heard about the kybella and saw what happened. when you have the loose skin, you said tighten it. >> there's ultrasound and radio frequency procedures that can actually tighten the skin so it's actually very similar to the shriners that we used to play with. when you apply heat to the different layers in the neck, you can actually contract and tighten that skin. >> do you have to keep it up? >> it lasts about one to two year. >> that's longer than i would have thought. about about those neck band. >> take a look at this. basically we have these things call platysmal bands in our neck and muscle fibers that run from the bottom of the chin down to the collarbone. now, as we mature, those muscle fibers become more visible because the skin itself becomes thinner and the effect can be very aging. so what you can do is i can actually sort of smooth out those bands and relax the muscles with a little bit of botox.
8:18 am
i literally burch the band between my fingers and apply tiny drops of botox down each one of those bands and then it relaxes for about three to four months. >> that's a real result there so -- all of these options are nonsurgical. >> all noninvasive or minimally invasive so minimal downtime. this would take five minutes in the office. >> dr. bowe, thanks for joining us. >> thank you very much both of you and turning now in the "heat index" to kate a royal debut at a state banquet. the queen welcomed the chinese president last night with a lavish dinner. william and kate were there looking dazzling in white tie and diamonds. abc's lama hasan has more from london. good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning to you, lara. this morning that chinese state visit is still going strong with william and kate celebrating creative cultural ties between the two nations but make no mistake, everyone is still talking about that state banquet last night, a first for the duchess and, boy, was she the

toast of the party. overnight the duchess of cambridge making a dazzling debut at her first ever state banquet. >> she attended dinners before and attended lavish dinners in buckingham palace but never attended an actual state banquet so this was a big milestone for her. >> reporter: kate's helping roll out the red carpet for the chinese president pulling out all the stops under taking a high-profile role for this white tie event. >> she looked like everything you would expect from a dumps and i'm sure the chinese president was happy to be sitting next to her. >> mr. president -- >> reporter: with the queen wining and dining around 170 guests, on the night all eyes were on the duchess looking regal in red. a nod to the chinese flag. kate choosing a sparkling floor length gown by one of her favorite designers, jenny packham dripping in bling. check out the lotus tiara with diamonds and pearls on display. >> she had a stunning tiara
8:20 am
borrowed from the queen, earrings to match and an absolutely enormous bling bracelet which we think was also borrowed from the queen's collection. >> reporter: these banquets are serious business. every single detail checked by the queen herself. royal staff taking three days to lay out the table and let's not even talk about the etiquette. clinking glasses with your neighbor, a must. >> i think that she will have done a very good job of wooing him which is what britain is trying to do with china and i think she had had been a good ambassador for that. >> reporter: this morning they're tipping to fly the british flag at another event with their chinese guests. and that was a 35$3500 dolce an gabbana lace dress kate was wearing. as for the state banquet if you're wondering what one eat, a four-course meal including venison from the balmoral estate and vintage wine, each bottle costing a mere $1600 and that,
