7:00 am
good morning, america. donald trump refuses to say president obama's born in the u.s. again. back on the trail, hillary clinton pounces. >> he still wouldn't say hawaii. he still wouldn't say america. this man wants to be our next president? the race tightening as stump goes on late night television to let his hair down. >> go ahead, with my hair spray. >> and donald trump jr. taking heat for his own comments about the gas chamber. he's responding here live this morning. state of emergency declared by two governor after a major gas pipeline breaks spilling
7:01 am
250,000 gallons of gasoline, now new concerns along the east coast that gas prices could skyrocket. official recall. samsung finally forced to pull its exploding phones in the u.s. refunding and replacing nearly a million after reports of overheating. cars igniting and 26 people burned as apple's new iphone goes on sale around the world this morning. the secret life of o.j. simpson. the new report revealing how he spends his days behind bars. the former football star now sharing a cell in prison with another inmate and reportedly keeping a picture with nicole brown simpson on his shelf. all as o.j. makes a new push for freedom. and good morning, america. happy friday. robin and mike out on assignment today. a lot to get to. 53 days until the election and new national polls show a dead heat between donald trump and hillary clinton. >> and then, george, a lot of people reacting to that bizarre
7:02 am
uncomfortable moment overnight with donald trump's hair on late night tv. >> that was bizarre. but also so worth donald trump's interview with "the washington post" last night where he refused to again acknowledge that president obama was born in the u.s. his son and adviser donald trump jr. standing by. we'll talk to him in a moment. the latest first from tom llamas on the trail in washington, d.c. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. the trump campaign now saying the republican nominee has changed his mind on where president obama was born. donald trump was the biggest and loudest voice in the birther movement but now with less than two months to go before the election trump seems to be waffling on an issue he spent so much time, money and energy on. overnight, the trump campaign announcing the candidate is no longer a birther sending out this statement announcing having successfully obtained president obama's birth certificate when others could not, mr. trump
7:03 am
believes that president obama was born in the united states. the statement attributed to a campaign spokesperson, not trump himself. the apatient reversal coming after "the washington post" posted a new story and interview of trump himself refusing to say whether he believes the president was born in the u.s. trump quoted as saying, i'll answer that question at the right time. i just don't want to answer it yet. critics of trump's birther stance says it's deep rooted in racism because president obama is black. hillary clinton seized on the new "washington post" story. >> he still wouldn't say hawaii. he still wouldn't say america. this man wants to be our next president? >> reporter: and trump's son don jr. also being accused of being insensitive for his use of the phrase "gas chamber" in this attack on the media. >> they've will et her slide on
7:04 am
every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every dnc game trying to get bernie sanders out of the thing. i mean, if republicans were doing that they'd be warming up the gas cham brother right now. >> reporter: the trump campaign insisting he was not talking about the holocaust. >> boy, the press likes to hit them. right? boy, the press likes to hit them and they're such good kids but they can take it. >> reporter: trump also showing he can take it. >> can i mess your hair up. >> reporter: overnight trump letting jimmy fallon go where no man has gone before. deep into his golden locks. >> go ahead, with my hair spray. >> reporter: trump a good sport about the late night gag but quickly trying to reset that famous hairdo. >> i'll do it as well. >> reporter: so trump like we've
7:05 am
never seen him before and this morning apparently taking a position many thought he never would, now, we want to reiterate donald trump has yet to say it himself that he believes president obama was born in hawaii, this is his campaign, and we're reminded of a tweet he sent out back in may. back then he said this, let's put it on the screen. he wrote, "don't believe the biased and phony media quoting people who work for my campaign. the only quote that matters is a quote from me." george, we're still waiting on that quote. >> we'll talk to donald trump's son, donald trump jr. you're one of your father's closest advisers. why can't he and won't he say that president obama is born in the u.s. >> i think he said it last night. >> the campaign spokesperson, i was with them, what he doesn't want to do he doesn't want to get off message and create another story but wants to talk about jobs. >> refusing to acknowledge that president obama was born in the united states. >> he wants to talk about jobs for americans. he wants to talk about his
7:06 am
revolutionary plan for women and working moth in ing mothers the. this is the presidency of the united states and want to talk about the issues and putting americans back to work. >> he's the only person who can put this to rest. in the past his campaign has said he believes that your father has not said himself, yes, president obama was born in the united states. i was wrong to question it. >> that is coming from him because i was involved in those conversations. he's going to put the head of his campaign spokesperson is putting it out from the campaign. what he said in the past, hey, don't believe what you read when you read a source close to the campaign, dent believe what those people say. >> wait a second. last week kellyanne conway put out a statement saying, oh, donald trump believes that the president was born in the united states, yet when donald trump has the chance to do that yesterday himself he refuses to do it. >> this is coming from him and i was involved this those conversations so -- >> are we going to hear him say those words. >> i don't know. this should be the definitive end of it. we thought it was the end when he acknowledged that, hey, we
7:07 am
got obama to release his birth certificate then but, again, we want to talk about jobs and not about gossip. >> he's been talking about it for years but he can end it by simply saying, yes, the president was born in the united states. i was wrong to question it. >> i believe that's what he did last night. >> but that's not what he did. >> well, we'll have to disagree on that. that's coming from him and i know that because i was part of the conversation. >> he has the ability to send out a tweet -- >> maybe he will. >> let's talk about you, as well. you saw those comments you made about the gas chamber drawing a lot of questions from the anti-defamation league they say we hope you understand the sensitivity and hurt of making holl cause jokes. we hope you retract. >> i didn't say anything about the holocaust. i was talking about media bias. it's essentially capital punishment. donald trump pjr. said the same thing two weeks ago and used the term electric chair. it was poor choice of words but perhaps but in no way, shape or form was i remotely talking
7:08 am
about the holocaust. i wouldn't do it. i think it's disgusting. it's not my style, my sister's an orthodox jew. half of my best men in my wedding and the bridesmaids in my wedding were jewish. i would never do that. what it shows, unfortunately, it almost proves the point, i say something, rather than the media saying, hey, don were you talking about the holocaust, oh, my god. >> this is the anti-defamation league. you're answering it now. >> it's the bias i was talking about. if i say something rather than talking about great jobs plan they can't attack my father anymore. they've erin out of ammo so now they attack me and cosmo trying to attack my sister. i understand that's the game they're playing but goes to show my point which i'm making about media bias. if you're a conservative you don't even get a fair shot. they don't give you the benefit of the doubt and really a shame. >> that's why we wanted to have you come in answer the questions. >> i'm addressing it myself but
7:09 am
it's why less than a third of americans even trust the media anymore. i mean those are from gallup polls, so, you know, i think perhaps this -- maybe me a disservice to say let's be honest about these and let's not jump to slander people over something that they would clearly never say, especially when they have a history of using a similar, you know, line -- >> part of the reason they've come up, you said you didn't have the holocaust in mind. part of the reason is you've had other tweets from anti-semitic individuals. had an instagram post last week. we want to put it up that included pepe the frog a well-known symbol of the white supremacist movement and others taken off because of their racist statements and questioned whether the government was behind 9/11. that's why the questions come up. >> if i'm glib that's the case. i never even heard of pepe the frog. i bet you 90% of your viewers have never heard of him. i thought it was a frog in a
7:10 am
wig. it's getting ridiculous but, again, that proves my point which is that anything that they can possibly latch on to, they can't even attack my father anymore. he's coming up with incredible policy both economic, very aggressive policy in terms of certainly for a republican coming out plan for working mother, all of these things. they can't attack those things. they don't have answers for those things so what they do, they have to attack me. i'm fine if they go after me. it shows they have nothing against the issues that matter to americans. >> the other question, you are executive vice president of the trump organization, you saw that "newsweek" cover this week. we want to put that up there right now and the article suggests that the conflicts raised by the trump organization with so many different businesses in so many different countries demand that mr. trump sever all ties with the business during this campaign and if he becomes president. will he? >> if he becomes president he will certainly do that. aides said he would put them in a blind trust and have nothing to do with it. he's much more concerned and said it to me about america and
7:11 am
putting americans back to work and the business he's created is incredible but he doesn't care. it's small potatoes relative to what he can do -- >> it's not a blind trust if you and -- >> we're not going to be involved in government. >> it's not a blind trust. you're running the company and he is president. so any foreign -- >> he's not making any decisions as it relates to the company. this is -- this would be standard operating procedure for any president that has had businesses whether it was george bush, he's not going to have anything to do with it. >> george and george h.w. bush and ronald reagan and bill clinton and mitt romney, the republican candidate all put their interests in a blind trust during the campaign. your father hasn't done that. >> he will certainly do it if he becomes president. >> a blind trust is not a blind trust if it's being run by his children. >> it is because he'll have nothing to do with it, george. he said that. heant whats nothing to do with it. he wants to get the country on the right track. >> there will be a wall between you, your father and siblings
7:12 am
about it. >> it's a big company but small potatoes -- >> he's still going to know what the businesses are. >> no, he won't. we will not -- >> how will he not know that. >> it doesn't matter. trust me, as you know, it's a very full time job. he doesn't need to worry about the business. the business is in good hands. he trusts us with that, the 100%. >> donald trump jr., thanks for coming in. >> thanks for not messing up my hair. >> let's go bang over to amy. as we saw hillary clinton back on the campaign trail for the first time since her health scare and abc's cecilia vega was there as she made that return and cecilia joins us now from washington, d.c. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. the last time hillary clinton was out in public was the day she nearly collapsed at the 9/11 memorial. she is back and her return comes at a crucial time in this race. her first day back on the campaign trail and just about every chance she got hillary clinton said it. >> i'm doing great. >> it's great to be back on the
7:13 am
campaign trail. >> it's great to be back. >> reporter: from the moment she stepped on the tarmac, a thumb's up to the second she stepped on that north carolina stage. ♪ i feel good >> reporter: it was a day carefully choreographed to show just how good she feels. >> i'm not great at taking it easy even under ordinary circumstances, but with just two months to go until election day, sitting at home was pretty much the last place i wanted to be. >> reporter: overnight former president clinton on "the daily show" coming to her defense. >> she still feels good. big deal she had pneumonia. people get it all the time. >> reporter: but hillary clinton comes back to a race that's tighter than ever. national polls show her lead shrinking and she is now in a tight battle with trump in must win battlegroups like florida and virginia.
7:14 am
>> i wonder if you did any soul searching about these new poll numbers. anything you should be doing differently in your campaign? >> cecilia, i've always said that this was going to be a tight race. i'm going to keep doing everything i can to deliver my message about what is at take in this election. >> reporter: an election she says she wants to be less about fighting and more about issues and then she went on to slam her opponent. >> every time we think he's hit rock bottom, he sinks even lower. >> reporter: well, clinton's aides say that's the strategy, a focus less on donald trump and more on a positive vision for the country but with that debate just ten days away and with polls tightening we will see how long that lasts, george. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. we move on to that official samsung recall. the government warns that the galaxy note 7 could explode or gurs into flames and calling back a million of them and david kerley has the latest from washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. two weeks into this serious hazard from a phone and owners of the samsung note 7 can get a
7:15 am
refund because they agreed to an official recall. action after the cases of burning exploding phone, cars burning even workplace overheating. >> i was sitting at my desk at work then it pretty much exploded. >> reporter: nearly a million brand-new note 7s sold in the u.s. recalled officially now after 92 reports ofover heating, 26 people burned and 55 pieces of property damaged. for two weeks samsung tried to exchange phones on its own. but it has now agreed to this official government recall. >> that's two weeks of dangerous batteries out there. what happened here? >> as a general matter when companies go out alone they don't benefit from our expertise. this is not the ideal way to run a process and we discourage companies from handling it this way. >> reporter: samsung was only able to get 130,000 customers to exchange phones. that means that more than 800,000 with defective lithium
7:16 am
batteries are now in circulation. with this agreement to offer immediate refunds as well as replacements by wednesday, the hope is those dangerous batteries will be exchanged. the company apologized at home in south korea earlier this week. the u.s. division now releasing a prepared statement. >> we did not meet the standard of excellence that you expect and deserve. for that, we apologize. >> reporter: it was samsung of america that told me the new phones will be available next wednesday but there are reports out of south korea this morning saying that the new phones could be delayed there, no word on whether or not that will affect the u.s. as well, george. >> okay, david. we have other new phones, that iphone, hard to get. >> it is hard to get. as of this morning a limited quantity will be available in the stores. so if you go to a store you might find one, but, george, this whole thing with the samsung, it's really this bigger battle with apple. this is a hot market and it is extremely competitive. >> hot market.
7:17 am
i get it. okay, david, thanks very much. >> george, we now have some new details on that frightening attack in manhattan. it happened yesterday afternoon when a man with a meat cleaver led police on a chase through midtown striking an officer before they eventually took him down. abc's gio benitez is on the scene with more on what happened. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. this is where the attack happened. one of america's busiest neighborhoods and now we're told it appears to have started because of a boot on a car. >> let's get out of here. >> reporter: a shoot-out in the heart of midtown manhattan after a police officer was attacked with a meat cleaver. >> injured mos. >> got hit with a meat cleaver. >> reporter: police say the syria akram jodueh seen here being taken here in this video obtained by wabc attacked an off-duty detective with an 11-inch cleaver after police confronted with him after trying to remove a boot from his car. >> as we were pursuing him and have video of the incident he
7:18 am
has the cleaver in his hand. you can clearly see it. >> reporter: a nearby officer using a taser to try to take the man down but when that didn't work, cops shot the suspect, a total of 18 shots fired. and we're told all three of those officers are recovering. they should be okay. that detective who was hit with a cleaver is said to be in good spirits. amy and george. >> all right, amy, you and your girls were caught up in that. >> we were just a few blocks away and thank goodness ended up taking the subway instead of walking down that street. by the time we got out saw helicopters and police and we quickly went to our phones to see what happened. just one of those frightening moments. >> scary moment in midtown. ginger, that looks scary too. reports from new mexico all the way into northeast iowa. it was a large area, you can see here, kansas hail covering the ground and a quick look at where the storm are moving now. it's a loud one in kansas and eastern iowa and western

7:35 am
charged with dom rel, domestic relation offenses within the home and those are treated much more lightly than stranger on stranger and i believe that's because sometimes the system blames the woman who is the victim and one of those cases, two women, one holding a baby, were held with a butcher knife, but he walked right out. i think right now what they need to focus on is where he has been. he has been -- i mapped it out in marion, 45 miles away to mansfield, 13 miles away to ashland. just think about this guy coming in and out of ladies' room in a holiday inn as a maintenance man. there are reports another body has been found down a ravine. everywhere he's been has to be traced. another thing, a lot of these victims' families say police did not take the missing person report seriously. why? why is that?

7:40 am
after his job, he's back in his cell spending lots of time from what we're learning reading and trying to get ready for his parole hearing. but you have to juxtapose that mundane existence with his celebrity status. apparently he is still getting lots of fan mail and he's serving as a commissioner over a prison baseball league so you have this guy who's doing some pretty mundane things but leveraging that celebrity status. >> commissioner of the baseball league. that's not mundane. >> you talked about that parole hearing. any idea of when he could be walking the streets again and what he'll face in the general public? >> so, what we know, amy, in october of next year he goes before the parole board again, we're learning that he has a pretty good prison record. he's stayed away from conflicts and he will be able to present that to the parole board. however, if he is successful, he has a huge financial issue that he will face once he's released and that's that $33 million

7:42 am
what's happened is that his former auto body shop in queens was raided along with victoria's house in long island. but he did nine years in prison in cleveland. he went out there -- the only place that would take him and now running some operations there. and they're accusing him also of pouring sand into body parts of cars to sell to the junk yards. >> john gotti had some juice but is the gotti family now still a force in the new york mob? >> no, not at all, george and it really -- look, they came into power on the gun when john gotti took out pauly castellano but among law enforcement, they always knew that they weren't royalty to the mob. in fact, they used to call them the howard beach hillbillies. just picture if veto corleone ever sat down at the table and says, look, i want my people to sell prescription medicine at a

7:44 am
>> easy to get to. you didn't have to awe meant indicate which is type in your cable provider. and this is much needed at least for twitter in terms of positivity because they're being compared to facebook and snapchat. do they have enough monthly active users. wall street has been killing them. this establishes them more as a media company than being social and, you know, this is good for them. one thing they paid $10 million for this for ten games. the real market value for this is around 150 million so they got a real deal here. if this turns out to be great, kind of a devil's thing here because they're now going to probably be paying real market value. >> several networks obviously air nfl games including espn and "forbes" called this is the biggest change agent to sports viewing. how do you think this will impact how we watch sports? >> i think it's going -- listen, i work for espn. there's watch espn, there's hours and hours of digital live viewing. i think the key here is what i just talked about, that word awe
