until we can and i'm quoting him "figure out what's going on." his supporters cheered the idea when he said it. it's being met by widespread condemnation from both parties. more from abc's elizabeth hur. >> we're going to build a wall. it will be a real wall. >> reporter: if you thought donald trump could not outtrump himself. >> donald trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims. >> reporter: with that, he has done it again. that's right. trump calling for a total ban on muslims coming to america. >> our country cannot be the victim of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad. they have no respect for human life. >> reporter: this less than 24 hours after president obama called for more tolerance for muslims following the san bernardino massacre. >> it's our responsibility to reject proposals that muslim americans should somehow be treated differently.
>> reporter: trump's proposal condemned by the nation's largest muslim organization. >> his ideas are not just unconstitutional, they are un-american. have we learned anything from history, mr. trump? >> reporter: it is also sparking a fiery debate on both sides. jeb bush calling trump unhinged. chris christie saying this is ridiculous and hillary clinton tweeting in part this is reprehensible. the stunning call comes on the same day new iowa polls show senator ted cruz on rise. perhaps in part by his answer for isis. >> we were carpet bomb them into oblivion. >> in response to trump, white house officials said simply this is totally contrary to america's values and security. richard and reena? >> thank you, elizabeth. the head of the council on american-islamic relations says trump sounds more like the leader of a lynch mob than a potential president and the gop leaders in iowa, new hampshire,
and south carolina are con depping the front-runner. a spokesman for ben carson says he favors registering and monitoring all people coming into the country but not based on religious. marco rubio tweeted trump's habit of making offensive statements will not bring americans together and jeb bush in addition to calling trump unhinged, he said trump's policy proposals are not serious. >> i the most interesting day in the campaign so far. i think. san bernardino struggles to move forward after last week's horrific terror attack. many county employees returned to work for the first time since the shooting. hundreds of people gathered for another candlelight vigil in honor of the 14 people killed. local religious leaders told the crowd they will rise above the tragedy and come out stronger. >> we're getting new details about the young couple behind the california massacre. the fbi saying both the husband and wife have been radicalized for some time. they revealed a clearer picture how they prepared for the attack
with target practice and enough material in the home to make 19 pipe bombs. here's abc's brian ross. >> reporter: there was no joy, no smiles, as the two future killers arrived in the united states for the first time as a married couple. this picture was taken in july 2014 at chicago's o'hare airport, as american citizen syed farook brought home tashfeen malik, a pakistani bride he met on a matrimonial website. federal authorities are trying to determine if even then they were planning to go to war with america. >> we have learned and believe that both subjects were radicalized and have been for quite some time. >> reporter: the fbi also revealed that the couple took target practice at this gun range just days before the attack. and agents finally were able to question the man who they say provided the couple with the two high-powered riffles. authorities say enrique marquez, a convert to islam, is now being questioned about his relationship with farook. he and farook grew up next door
to each other in this neighborhood. >> they were very close friends. if anybody in this neighborhood, enrique was the closest to syed. >> reporter: overseas, the investigation is focusing on the wife's background and contacts in pakistan before she came to the u.s. malik's official photos show her evolution from the young woman wearing makeup and a scarf, her hair showing in a college application, to a still loose veil, but no makeup, in a national i.d. card, to this photo, applying for a u.s. visa, with traditional veil, and finally, her arrival at o'hare airport in a strict, conservative black headdress. >> she's probably the most radicalized of the two of what we've seen so far and could easily persuade a spouse. >> reporter: only a few years ago, farook appeared to be just another californian millennial, looking for love. but he, too, underwent a transformation in how he presented himself, after travels to pakistan and saudi arabia,
and then his marriage to malik. as the fbi found when it raided the couple's home, they tried to cover their tracks by destroying phones and computers. president obama says there's no evidence of a broader plot or larger cell but law enforcement authorities tell abc news there are a number of leads they are still about your suing that could, could lead to additional charges against suspected accomplices. brian ross, abc news, new york. thank you, brian. prosecutors in london says there's a link between the subway slashing there and the terror attack in san bernardino. they say the suspect had pictures of the attacker's mobile phone along with images of the paris assault. they're calling the slashing an act of terror. of muhaydin mire has been charged with attempted murder. he made a brief appearance in court yesterday. senator a two-star admiral fired from his position for being drunk and naked in public. david backham becomes the most senior official to be removed from his post this year.
investigators say that the officer was so intoxicated during a conference at a florida hotel he could not stand. video later showed him wandering around his hotel without clothes. he blames mixing alcohol with medication. >> there are a number of closures in south florida because of the heavy rain including the zoo. most of the zoo miami's 3,000 animals are safe because they're their enclosures are elevated. the human areas are another story. it's even possible that some animals like the lions could escape by swimming across the moat. it's not known when the zoo will reopen. a slightly terrifying prospect in the miami area. and the pacific northwest is also seeing record-breaking rainfall. the flood watch continues through thursday. high water closed roads and triggered landslides. accompanying the heavy rain, strong winds and record high temperature, it will be another stormy day in the northwest.
here's accuweather's paul williams. good morning. >> thanks, richard. well, i know in the northwest, are you stick and tired of the rain. it continues to stay stuck on student quite frankly. but is there any relief in sight? actually not. the only relief, that jet will dip farther to the south and spread the same misery into northern california, northwestern portions of nevada and as that front dips and move so will dip and move the rain. we're watching out for the possibility of 6 to 1 incheses of rain near boise and extreme northwest corner of wyoming. >> thank you. thank you very much, indeed, paul. we had a night out last night which we teased so well at the beginning of the show. >> it was the townton abby premier. there's you with your friend. >> so i actually do know, it was a bit of a disaster in a way. i do know hugh bonneville. i took reena to the premier of the new season in midtown
manhattan to meet him. i e-mailed hugh and said we're coming. we got there and it turned out the cast were only going to appear after the screening and we were quiet hungry. so we decided to go to a restaurant. no need for a spoiler alert because we never saw the new season of "downton abbey." >> it's probably good for pbs. i think we would have indirectly kind of -- you were more fascinated with our walk back to the studio to get back here in time. here's richard. take a look at these photos. richard with christmas lights. you were so excited. you said look at this. we took this. then you went to see the statue of liberty. >> not everything in new york is beautiful and tasteful. >> you were so excited to be walking down. >> i felt like a child and i get very excited by a lot of things. that was great. listen, i'm sorry that i let you down and you only got as far as a hugh bonneville cardboard

>> i know muslim people, they are phenomenal people, but there is a problem in there. >> reporter: the republican front-runner is now calling for "a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states." our country cannot be the victim of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad. >> this less than 24 hours after president obama called for more tolerance for muslims after that terrorist attack in california. >> it's our responsibility to reject proposals that muslim-americans should somehow be treated differently. >> reporter: but trump wants no part of it and saying his war on terror won't end with the terrorists. >> at least i would go after the wives who absolutely knew it was happening and i guess your definition of what i do, i'm going to leave that to your imagination. >> reporter: trump is upping his rhetoric to an unprecedented level. jeb bush called it unhinged. governor chris christie called it ridiculous.
>> this is the kind of thing people say when they have no experience and don't know what they're talking about. we do not need to resort to that type of activity nor should we. >> reporter: trump's extreme plan comes the same day new iowa polls show senator ted cruz on the rise. his momentum fuelled in part by his solution for isis. >> we will carpet bomb them into oblivion. i don't know if sand can glow in the dark but we're going to find out. >> reporter: trump supporters telling us they endorsed this plan. others saying they want some type of screening process when it comes to muslims. but donald trump may have a huge problem with the united states constitution. lawyers telling us muslim immigrants cannot be denied or preferred on the religion which would be in direct contrast to the trump ban. tom llamas, abc news, new york. >> tom, thank you. >> it really was a breathtaking statement by donald trump. wasn't it? >> i think you would think it caught people off guard but it didn't really. right? we kind of know he's out there. >> i was reflecting on it tonight. and i've watched this now several times, this speech that
we can see here. i actually think we'll come to view this as a moment in history because what happens next is so interesting. so do his supporters now, does his support stay the same? does it go down? does it go up? if it goes up, what does that say? it's i think the next few days are fascinating. it is the most i guess the most dramatic and to use that word again breathtaking statement by a serious contend for office of my lifetime, i think. by the way, i have a twitter handle @richardpbacon. if you are a supporter of donald trump, let me know. has this changed your view of him? have those comments about muslims today changed your view of him? if so why, if not why not @richardpbacon. >> look forward to hearing what people have to say. moving on to congress taking new steps to tight and at visa waiver program. under current law,
citizens of certain countries can travel to the u.s. without a visa and say for 90 days for tourism or business. today the house is expected to approve an overhaul which would prevent recent visitors to syria and iraq from taking advantage of the program. a much tougher bill in the senate would the require fingerprinting for travelers coming to the u.s. >> foreign recruits are pouring into syria and iraq to join isis. that is the conclusion of a security consulting group which says the number of foreign fighters has more than doubled in the past 18 months. and there are now as many as 31,000 of them. the biggest increase in new recruits for isis is from russia and central asia while the number from north america has leveled off. learning more about the couple who opened fire in san bernardino. take a look at a picture taken in july of last year. this one shows syed farook and tashfeen malik arriving as newly weds in chicago. the couple didn't raise any
suspicions when they took target practice at a california gun range, the last time just days before the rampage. the fbi says they had been radicalized for some time. they're still trying to figure out how. >> she's probably the most radicalized of the two. and could easily persuade you know a spouse. >> authorities also got a chance to question the man who provided the couple with two high-powered rifles. enrique marquez grew up next door to farook. they remain close friends. he's now being detained. >> horrifying new tails this morning on what went on inside the conference room from some of the people lucky to make it out uninjured but likely forever scarred by the bloody images of the rampage carried out by one of their own. more from abc's cecilia vega. >> reporter: the shooting started before the attackers even walked in the room. >> it was pop, pop, pop, pop. >> maybe a little bit more. >> reporter: doors open? >> doors fly open. >> yes. >> yeah, they were forced open, hard.
the shooter stepped right in the room and began fire agimmediately. >> reporter: health department bosses, trudy raymundo and corwin porter, gathered inside with staff in the room where they held an active shooter training just the year before. the second they heard the shots fired, they dropped to the ground, hiding under tables for cover. the room was packed with tables. a screen on one side for presentations, a christmas tree on the other. syed farook and tashfeen malik burst in through this door at the center of the conference room, opening fire, blowing out windows and striking many of the people at this table, the very table farook had been sitting at earlier. >> we have several down in a conference room. several down. >> reporter: they say farook entered first, wearing a ski mask. the couple unloading at least 65 rounds. what are you thinking, what are you doing? >> there was a small break in the tablecloth and i just kept looking down and i kept hoping that the gunfire would stop, that the gunfire would stop. and i just -- i couldn't believe that it would stop.
>> reporter: what went through your mind when you heard that name? >> a complete sense of betrayal. it amazes me every day how close this group is, how tight knit they are and it's nothing but betrayal. >> the co-workers telling me farook and his wife fired in complete silence. they say at one point they saw farook pointing the muzzle at the ground where the co-workers were laying injured. it appeared he fired on them one by one. cecelia vega, abc news, san bernardino, california. >> every detail of that testimony is haunting, isn't it? no charges will be filed in another chicago police shooting caught on camera. ronald johnson was killed by an officer last year as he tried to run away. his family tried to argue he was unarmed but experts determined johnson was armed. this comes as the u.s. attorney general announced that the justice department will investigate the police
department, partly in response to another shooting death, the shooting of the teen laquan mcdonald. >> more bad news for chipotle restaurant chain. more than two dozen boston college students became ill after eating at a local chipotle. that includes members of the men's basketball team. chipotle has been reeling since an e. coli outbreak in nine states. not confirmed in the boston cases but both its sales and stock are plummeting. > health alert this morning. a warning about children and exercise. the american academy of pediatrics says u.s. teens are among the least physically active in the world with barely 8% of them getting at least an hour of physical activity per day. the academy long critical of the no child left behind act that's forced many schools to dramatically reduce or cut recess all together says kids need to be more active during the school day.

>> no problem because washington came down the field and tied it at 16. when that man desean jackson saved himself by catching a 28-yard touchdown pass. >> no problem is right. you know why? dallas quickly got into field goal range and dan bailey kicked the winner from 54 yards. 54 yards. that's a lot, richard. cowboys win 19-16. >> okay. >> bam. >> that was a good game. >> that was a good game. >> better when it was over. >> okay. >> better when it was over. >> i don't know. i can't tell what he's saying. it feels a little bit like we're being heckled. >> i'll translate. you're right. coming up. >> he's not making any sense. just keep talking. > in "the skinny," the hollywood star, the victim actually of a crime. it's pretty horrific right here in new york. a costly ripoff. >> also ahead, a glimpse at how christmas will be celebrated among the royals in my home country with two very photogenic royal children.

so i was asking for your opinion on donald trump. his latest comments are banning muslims from coming into america which appeared certainly yesterday to include american muslims who had gone on a holiday. and his idea at one point it appeared it would include them that they would be stopped from getting back into america. so @richard p. bacon and quite a few people agree. stone cold country tweeted i totally agree with donald trump. all immigration must stop in order to save this great country from hell. dramatic turn of phrase. this is ian. this is quite amusing. he says you'd realize this is just because in donald trump's addled mind it will stop obama coming back after a trip abroad. that's quite funny. you can make any comments on the
show at any point, we would read everything. we won't read it all out but we'll certainly see everything that comes in. >> also from the republican side of the aisle, this year's edition of government waste book. >> in what's become an annual end of year tradition, a select number of republicans are causing out their legislative colleagues on wasteful government spending. abc's serena marshall gives us a look. >> reporter: monkeys running on treadmills, shrimp fights and hipster parties. all part of this year's waste book. compiled by arizona senator jeff flake, highlighting more than 100 government-funded studies, grants and programs he says is costing taxpayers too much. >> what we're trying to say with this waste book is for those who say that we've cut all the fat in washington, take a look. there's a lot that goes on. >> reporter: some of the programs he calls fat at a price tag of $1 million, this nih funded study put marmosets in hamster balls and had them run
on treadmills to see if they would be good future research subjects. and this one, that's right, those are two mantis shrimp duking it out. the result? the shrimp that hits more, not harder wins. price tag, $707,000. then there's this question. >> will you be there to help a hipster in need? >> a $5 million study seeking to reduce smoking among young adults. in all three cases the researchers and granting institutions defended their work. monkeys provide test subjects to study on neurological disease. shrimp on their strong shells can lead to future weapons and defense systems and those hipster parties provide the first effort to counteract the tobacco companies can bar promotions. but for the senator, it doesn't ad up. >> a lot of the studies are legitimate and useful but a good number of them, who in the world thought up this stuff. >> reporter: it's not just research listed in this nearly 300-page book, but housing programs, u.s. aid programs and
>> time now for "the skinny" and topping our headlines, a grand grand finale in paris. >> yeah, what was widely rumored all weekend actually finally happened. the eagles of death metal took the stage in paris with u2 last night for the first time since last month's terror attack killed 90 people at the band's last concert there. >> bono gave the group an emotional introduction. >> these are our brothers, our fellow troubadours. they were robbed of their stage three weeks ago and we would like to offer them ours tonight. >> i cannot hear you. is everybody here having a good time? >> lead singer jess hughes led both bands in the song "people have the power," by patti smith who played with u2 last night. the performance helped cap off the end of the concert that also aired on hbo last night. >> hughes says the eagles of death metal will resume their tour next year and will play paris in february.
authorities here in new york are searching for three men who robbed gwyneth paltrow. well, not really. but the pop-up shop for her lifestyle brand goop. >> apparently they walked away with stolen goods estimated to be worth more than $170,000. that's a lot which many have joked turns out to be about a dozen items. actually less than that. >> police say the thieves pried open a cabinet door during store hours taking two pieces of jewelry and three men's watches. in response to the theft, goop said in a statement we remain open for business with proper security precautions in place. >> and finally we can all breathe a sigh of relief. kim kardashian and kanye west have a name for their newborn child. the baby born over the weekend. the world awaiting the announcement of the name. it will be easton, we thought. no, the tweet from mama kim says it's going to be saint west. >> i like it. along with the name, a family
