through security and everyone on edge after that apparent bombing in egypt. david kerley starts us off at reagan airport. >> reporter: good morning, george. it was more than just one aircraft. at least 20 jetliners held because authorities apparently lost track of this suspicious bag and had to find it. >> on three, on three. >> reporter: passengers taken by surprise as miami police board their plane. >> everybody out, everybody out. from the front. >> reporter: just before takeoff the american airlines jet evacuated. >> the front, let's go, quickly, quickly. >> reporter: police ordering everyone on the jet bound for barbados to put their hands on their head. one passenger taken into custody, who the fbi says got through security just before 5:00 p.m. with suspicious items in his carry-on bag. >> do you have anything on you? >> reporter: the officer noticed the gentleman not making eye contact then started fiddling with the bag and that's when
7:03 am
they kind of jumped all over him. put him in handcuffs and took him down and ordered all of us to get off the plane as fast as we could. >> get off the plane, get on the ground. >> reporter: the tsa telling abc news the passenger is a dentist and it was his dental equipment which triggered the alarm. at least 20 jets held, delayed or diverted while the search for the bag was on. >> can't even tell us if you're going to get where you're going to go. >> reporter: some 500 passengers affected until the bag and the passenger were actually found. the man was released, george. there's no word whether he actually got to barbados and whether or not he got his bag back or not. >> the question, how did he get through security in the first place? >> reporter: yeah, one source is telling us tsa screeners saw something suspicious in the bag. it was to go to secondary checking and apparently the second officer didn't realize that, released the bag, released
7:04 am
the passenger. 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 debate 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 about and some are checking out. overnight, donald trump unleashing on dr. ben carson and the new scrutiny over carson's life story. >> this is the only election in
7:05 am
history where you are better off if you stab somebody. >> reporter: trump and carson now neck and neck in the polls, the retired neurosurgeon forced to answer questions about his violent youth. >> if you try and hit your mother over the head with a hammer, your poll numbers go up. a lot of weird things are happening. this is a strange election, isn't it? >> reporter: carson standing by the stories he wrote about in his autobiography and talks about on the campaign trail like turning his life around as a young man after trying to stab a fellow teen. carson's campaign pointing to an article in "parade" magazine in 1997 where his mother corroborates the storytelling the reporter, oh, that really happened and after "the wall street journal" reported discrepancies in carson's account of an incident at yale where he said he was honored as the most honest student after a class hoax involving a bogus test a fellow student who staged the hoax telling abc news, carson was not lying saying, quote, i think he got it close
7:06 am
to right. >> i do not remember this level of scrutiny for one president barack obama when he was ruvening, in fact, i remember just the opposite. >> reporter: but as other candidates say, this is all fair game, carson finding some support from senator marco rubio. >> i know everything i need to know about ben carson. he came from a poor family with no advantages in life and worked hard and became one of the world's most renowned neurosurgeons. that's all i need to know. >> 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 christine 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 will see. let's talk to donald trump. mr. trump, thank you for joining us by phone today. sounds like you're ready to tee off on ben carson tonight. >> no, not at all. we'll see what happens. it'll be loose and flexible. i have no idea what's going to happen but it will be
7:07 am
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 that he went after his mother with a hammer and he wanted to hit his mother over the head with a hammer, that he stabbed somebody, that he had hit somebody in the face with a lock. he smashed somebody's face with a lock, with a padlock 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 temper or something and he wrote that himself in the book and, you know, i'm trying to figure out what's going on over here. 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 and that's supposed to
7:08 am
make you credible. >> we heard the word -- >> it's a very strange situation. >> heard the word hammer several times in your answer. want to ask you about an abc news poll. 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. better than you. he's got a 50% favorability. 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 it once you tart running and focusing on that. zogby came out with a poll where i'm at 30 to 127 against ben and i beat hillary head-to-head in numerous 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 a 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
with china in terms of imbalance. they're killing us and in every respect and their currency manipulators are 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%. federal reserve almost certain to raise rates. is that the right move? >> it is the right move but the unemployment is not 5%. the unemployment 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 20%. 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. >> 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. 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 forrant 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. 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 ted cruz is in an interesting position because i don't think he has an opportunity to bash the refs so what will he do. >> some talk of ted cruz and 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 moderators doing the work instead of them doing it. >> let's see what happens. matthew dowd, thanks for being here. later i'll head to washington for an exclusive 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,
7:12 am
rich. >> really dramatic. the big question for people with high blood pressure has always been if you treat it how low do you go? people at high risk for heart geez was 140 or 50 for that top number. what they wanted to see here is what happens if you bring that all the way down to 120. so the researchers did a study, half the people went for the current target 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% reduction in bad outcomes like heart attack, stroke or deaths from heart disease in 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 the side effects. >> there was a trade-off so to get it down that low on average people had to be on three medications to get it to the 140 it was two medications and there was a slight increase in er visits for a number of things
7:13 am
for low blood pressure, for fainting though 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 those processed foods. those things could take care of some of this or make it easier to control. >> all of this is encouraging, thank you very much. dr. besser will be taking your questions throughout the morning. you can tweet him @drrichardbesser. snow, hail rain and it's moving east and ginger, so many are on the lookout for a blizzard. >> so many. you've got to see the numbers. first, san francisco, california, picture of the thunderstorms that rolled through the bae. that is the golden gate bridge
7:14 am
getting struck by lightning. you move to nevada where it came as heavy snow and this same storm now digging into the west with winter weather advisories from nevada up to montana into colorado and utah. look at that blizzard warning and watch, northeast colorado, western kansas and nebraska, that means wind, plus snow. it doesn't necessarily mean you get tons and tons of snow but does mean really bad travel conditions and out front, potential for tornadoes, damaging wind and, of course, that large hail. des moines to peoria back to st. louis. . more on this coming up. for now back to robin. >> amy has the morning's other top stories beginning with big news, the university of missouri. >> that's right. the school football team there will resume practice after the school's president resigned amid growing racial tension and the chancellor says he will step aside from his position, as well. students and faculty had joined the football team's protest. the team threatened to boycott over how racial tensions were handled. so coming up at 7:30 we will
7:15 am
talk to jonathan butler, the grad student who staged a hunger strike triggering the protest on campus. a setback for president obama's immigration plan. his executive order would have protected 5 million undocumented immigrant children and parents of u.s. citizens from deportation. but now an appeals court has sided with 26 states who say the president exceeded his authority. the white house is expected to appeal to the supreme court. and there are new details in the growing scandal involving russia and the olympic games. this morning russian president vladimir putin says doping accusations against russian athletes and claims that the russian government staged a cover-up are, quote, unfounded. putin says no evidence has been presented by the world anti-doping agency. but the russian track and field federation has been given until the end of this week to respond to that report. russian athletes could be suspended from next year's summer olympics. well, some dramatic video from alaska. pro skier ian macintosh, look at him there, he tumbled 1600 feet
7:16 am
downhill while filming a movie. he deployed an air bag safety device on the way down, thankfully and remarkably was n uninjured. once he stopped, macintosh was heard saying, i'm okay. by the way, the movie is called "paradise waits". finally if you want to get a good night sleep we have a very unusual suggestion. turn the lights off when you're brushing your teeth. a neuroscientist in britain studied the issue and said bright bathroom lights could be waking up your body as it should be preparing to rest. you know, i actually brush my teeth in the dark in the morning so i'm actually still asleep right now. did you know that. >> do you do squats when brushing your teeth? >> that's ginger's thing. >> and they really tire you out. >> squats, check. >> lights off. thanks, amy. that dramatic police chase caught on body cam in just 30 seconds.
7:17 am
>> back at 7:17 with that wild ending to a police chase in oklahoma. an officer lucky to be alive after his cruiser was rammed head-on by an suv. t.j. holmes here with the story. hey, t.j. >> reporter: good morning. he was under the protection of god. that is how a police chief describes how his officer got out of the situation in which he came face-to-face with a suspect in an suv. the officer pulls his gun. the suspect hits the gas. horrifying moments as an suv races towards a police cruiser. a police body camera captures the driver appearing to aim right for the officer's karaming it before being stopped by two gunshots.
7:18 am
it all began when officers in tulsa, oklahoma, chased a woman for five miles. she was accused of stealing an suv. eventually they corner her vehicle in a school parking lot. police officer matt stacy races out of his car in an attempt to lay down spikes to flatten her tires. three seconds later it comes barreling toward him. stacy gets off two shots. >> stop, stop. >> reporter: his body camera shows him tumbling to the ground and racing back up. the suv careening to the other end of the parking lot. the officers run after the suspect who taunts them. >> put your hands on top of your head. do not move. >> reporter: eventually they're able to subdue her. >> taser, taser. >> reporter: she faces four felony charges. the tulsa police chief commending his officers for the job they did. and she's taunting and yelling at the officers. some profanities. they do believe drugs was involved here but the officer checked into the hospital, got checked out and he's out of there. but, again, that was at an
7:19 am
elementary school, all right, and shots were fired. no students or teachers involved but an ugly, scary scene. >> the officers there doing the right thing, all right. thank you, t.j. much for ahead. those dramatic developments at the university of missouri. the president stepping down. the chancellor being reassigned and racial tensions and protests over there. will other colleges follow suit? now the student whose hunger strike started it all is going to speak out only on "gma." a new lawsuit taking on one of your favorite cereals right there. we'll be right back. america to stir up the holidays, before earning 1% cash back everywhere, every time and 2% back at the grocery store, even before they got 3% back on gas, all with no hoops to jump through, daniel, vandi, and sarah decided to use their bank americard cash rewards credit card to sweeten the holiday season. that's the spirit of rewarding connections. apply online or at

7:32 am
>> reporter: it's president tim wolfe resigning and chancellor r. bowen loftin transitioning to another role. both under a tidal wave of pressure from students angry over the handling of what they call institutional racism on campus. >> i take full responsibility for the inaction that has occurred. >> reporter: students saying they have been subjected to racial slurs, a swastika recently found in a dorm bathroom. many on campus protested for weeks. one jonathan butler even mounting a hunger strike until wolfe resigned. the football team who vowed not to play until the president stepped aside ready to get back on the field. >> let this be a testament to all other athletes across the country that you do have power. you do have power. >> reporter: the university now vowing action over the next three months to create the new role of chief diversity inclusion and equity officer and to start a full review of
7:33 am
policies on staff and student conduct. it's a victory now being watched on campuses across the nation also facing racial tensions. like at yale, hundreds marching monday protesting alleged racial intolerance on campus. >> that is an accomplishment to make a voice for all other universities to let them know you don't have to stand for injustices on your campus. >> reporter: and those students telling me this has been an emotional roller coaster for them. the university toad to lose more than a million dollars had they forfeited that upcoming football game on saturday. robin. >> all right, alex, thank you very much. joining us now is jonathan butler, the jufrts of missouri grad student who staged a hunger strike in protest. good morning to you, jonathan. i see that you have other students that have gathered there around you and i know that you said you did not want the focus to be your hunger strike, that that was not the focus, that it was about the cause, but
7:34 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 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 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 conditions there on campus the words you used was unlivable. can you describe more what you were talking about? >> yeah, the campus climate here at the university of missouri has been unlivable since i was
7:35 am
here as an undergraduate student so started here in 2008. and in my first semester i had individuals write the "n" word on my wall and had white students who were literally physically assaulting me. the campus culture here is not welcoming to people who are of the majority identity. >> and what do you think of the measures that the university say they are now going 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 disappointed with 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 and more innovative and also more substantial. i do acknowledge it's a step in the right direction. we need to know these aren't just promises or words to calm us down as students but really true changes to happen on this campus. >> i know you don't want this to
7:36 am
be symbolic. you don't want 9 hunger strike or the president stepping down to be symbolic but further measures. what exactly is it that you are 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 identities background, lifestyles et cetera is okay. we're not expecting everyone to 100% agree with what we're doing or 100% agree with our lifestyle but demand they respect our differences and our differences in humanity. >> jonathan, the entire football team 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 to me so it was powerful for them to use their millions of dollar platform to advocate for social change. >> the team and coaches said they were concerned about you and that's what their focus was and making sure that you were
7:37 am
going to be okay. 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 overwhelming 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 communication 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
7:38 am
are joining you there on the campus at mizzou. we wish everyone there all the best going forward. thank you. >> thank you so much, robin. >> 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 begin 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'll tell 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 masterpieces. new speakers for a new sound. we reinvented the surface pro. so you can reinvent everything else.
