7:03 am
it really got itself together and sat and just dumped on the city. 26.8 inches here officially at central park. missing the all-time record snowfall b b 1/10th of an inch. you'd think of all that, they'd just goose it a little bit and get us the record, but it didn't happen. right now though, the northeas@ is crippled and digging out. look at the statistics. washington, d.c., hard-hit, they are looking at federal offices closed in washington, d.c., as are the schools. also closed in philadelphia and in baltimore, as well. we also see the national guard deployed in 12 states. they will be working non-stop for days at a time. we are also expecting to see more flight delays. 1,300 flight cancellations today alone. a real mess at the airports. pack your patience and make sure you check your app before you go. the other deal is the dig out. people will be digging out up

7:07 am
biggest srms in history, a new week begins as millions of people try to clear mountains of snow and return to normal. >> now in new york, mayor bill de blasio said anyone who has their car buried, leave it there the next week. but aaa has tips to keep you safe. get all the snow off your car. the hood, the roof, the taillights, a also the head lights, of course. you also want to make sure you dig out your tailpipe, even if your car is idling, to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. drifts. some of the snow banks are taller than the children that are out and about. watch for children, and it's going to be an issue as this snow is not going to melt until temperatures get above freezing. that could take a while. matt and savannah? thank you. the airlines trying to get back on track. starting today after more than 12,0 weekend flights were cancelled.
7:08 am
seeing newancellations and new delays. tom costello covers aviation for us. he's ataguardia here in new york for us. >> good morning. it'll be slow on the rebound. a herculean effort to getethe airports on the east coast open. look at the video from washington, reagan and where they've been working around the clock. look tatat the photograph from new york city, where they've been using a jet engine to blow the snow away. we alrdy have 1,200 cancellations today. 137 for tomorrow. we're seeing delays, as you'd expect. the airports most effective, laguardia, jfk, and baltimore, and charlte and as far north as boston. to the west, chicago. the number you cited, 12,000 flightcancellations since friday. the number could grow again today over the weekend.

7:10 am
of snow here in the nation's capital. i want to show you what it looks like this morning. in some spots, it's thick. it can be knee deep, even deeper than that in some spots. it is a sloppy, sloppy mess all across this city. for the last couple hours, we've seen plows working overdrive to clear city streets. not enough is being done fas enough. government here. all public schools in the area are also shut down today. it's going to be a nightmare for folks who are out on the road. the city officials are asking everyone who canan stay home to do so. chair expecting the morning commute to move at a snail's pace here. they're hoping with all the government shutdown here, it'll make theoads easier, but it's going to be a mess. >> miguel, of course, we'll continue to follow these ongoing problems, transportation issues and have more on that later on. talk about breaking news overnight. at least seven people injured on an american airlines flight.

7:12 am
they'll be following you in. >> reporter: parameds and up to half a dozen ambulances were on the tarmac to evaluate passengers and crew. according to american airlines, three flight attendants and four passengers were transported to a local hospital for evaluation. a bump in the trip. >> should be at milan at this point, but we're here. >> reporter: many try to see the bright side. >> i'm glad to be in n n finland. always wanted to come here. not under these circumstances. >> now, the extent of the injuries have not been revealed, but another passenger believes they range from a concussion to a shoulder injury. american airlines spokesperson said they're working to recrew the aircraft. e flight is scheduled to take off later today. obviously, frightening moments. that had nothing, really, to do with the blizzard that we're talking about. >> good reminder to wear the seat belt. >> absolutely. >> tamron, thank you.

the presidential race. the iowa caucuses one week from today, the candidates are making a final push in the hawkeye state. there's buzz about somebody who isn't yet in the race. michael bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of new york, contemplating a run of his own. let's start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. good morning. >> hi, savannah. good monday morning to you. michael bloomberg willing to spend at least $1 billion of his own money if he dives in. if floating this idea of a run was designed to intimidate opponents, that hasn't happened. donald trump touting a wide lead in iowa, he's unfazed. bernie sanders says, bring it on. >> reporter: could it be the battle of the multi-billionaires? donald trump says he'e' welcome a michael bloomberg bid. >> i'd love to have him come in because i love the competition, frankly. i'd love bloomberg to come in.
7:14 am
up a plan, it's likely the former new york city mayor would only run if the aeneral election matched trump or cruz against bernie sanders. hillary clinton is vowing that won't be necessary. >> i'll relieve him of that and get the nomination so he doesn't have to. >> reporter: analysts warn getting in comes with no guarantees, especially with a candidate close to wall street, one of the nation's leadi voices for strict gun control. rand paul mocked the idea. another liberal billionaire from new york city? i think that slot is taken. fortifying his lead just one week until iowa, trump may think he's almost untouchable. imagine any other candidate saying this to praise his supporters' loyalty. >> i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't lose any voters. >> reporter: later, brushing off criticism. >> i have greater loyalty from voters than any other candidates, double, triple, quadruple. i love my people. >> reporter: plenty of love to go arnd.

7:16 am
let's talk about michael bloomberg. my understanding is only if the parties elect to nominate their path. is this the kind of year where you could see a third party mission? >> it is. but you have to be willing to engage in hopeless endeavors if you want to run for president. that is the likely outcome, from the statistics. if he's a domino, he needs two others to fall first. if bloomberg is going to get , he needs cruz to be the republican nominee. that makeses available enough right-leaning voters. and he needs bernie sananrs to prevail to find a lane, to be able to add up enough potential voters to come his way. >> it seems as if he's relying on anger. we've talked so much in this mpaign about anger on the right and anger on the left. he's hoping, or calculating, that if those two people get the nomination, there will be enough anger in the center to give him a path to the white house. >> i think, in all honesty, when
7:17 am
him is hillary clinton. if hillary clinton doesn't win the democratic nomination, realistically, that probably opens up more voters for him. he'd need a trump or cruz on the republican side. when you lolk at the numbers, the profile of the potential bloomberg voter, more likely from the democratic side than the republican side. >> he has a billion dollars, making him an immediate ntender. >> he wouldn't be the only billionaire in the race. in anotherer year, it'd give him an advantage and say, i don't have to fundraise. in this year, he'd be following trump's lead on that issue. >> all right. so scale of 1 to 10. ten is he'll do it if the two people are nominated. one is there's no way. where do you stand? >> i don't think cruz and sanders bothprevail. >> the situation doesn't present itself? >> if it did, i'd give it a 7 or
7:18 am

7:44 now. donald rumsfeld served as a congressman early in his career and worked for several presidents over four decades. most recently, as secretary of defense for president george w. bush. now, he's trying something completely different. it's a new business venture we're going to talk to him about in our next half hour first, secretary rumsfeld, good to have you in new york. rare opportunity to talk to you. nice to see you. >> thank you. good to be here. >> if i told you 20 years ago that in 2016, donald trump was going to be the front runner on the republican side of a presidential campaign, what would you have thought? >> it was out of the question. year. it's so different from most, if not all, of the earlier ones i've exrienced. >> as you watch what's unfolding as a conservative republican, do you see donald trump as someone who can unite and broaden the party, or do you see someone who
7:42 am
>> i see someone who has touched a nerve in our country. he's called people to respond in a way that most politicians have not been able to do. the facac that bernie sanders and donald trump are able to draw 10,000, 15,000, 30,000 people to hear them speak says there's sosething going on in our country that they're appealing to in a very interesting, unusual way. >> in your role as secretary of defense, you dealt with president george w. bush in his role as commander in chief. you know what that side of the job entails. given what challenges face our military forces all around the globe today,ould you be comfortable with donald trump or bernie sanders as commander in chief? >> goodness. that's the kind of thing you want to get used to. you'd have to thinkthrough.
7:43 am
it causes the american people, hundreds of millions of human beings, to watch these people run around the track, and then make a judgment about them. what's happening is, people are having a chance to look at a very deep, broad field of republican candidates, and a much more modest field of democraticcandidates, and make a judgment about it. >> with all due respect, you dodged it. can you see donald trump, you personally, as commander in chiefsome. >> can i see the person that gets elected by the american people serve as president of the united states? well, my goodness, we've been you bet. >> you're still good at this. no question about it. let me ask you about another candidate, jeb bush. an extremely qualified candidate. can't get any traction. you know all about theush family. why is that? >> i don't know. i suppose there's people who are uncomfortable with the dynasty. democrat side or the republican side.
7:44 am
people are persuaded by someone who is capable of talking and thinking on their feet. and they compare the various candidates, 14, 15, 16 republican candidates, and they're making judgments about who is the one who is most likely to be able to handle a difficult presidential campaign against the other part >> i mentioned the bush family. i have to ask you about a recent book, a biography authorized on 41, george h.w. bush. he had thihis to you about you and your time as secretary of defenseor his son. he said, quote, i think he served the president badly. i don't'tike what he did and i think it hurt the president, having his iron-ass view of everything. there's a lack of humility. a lack of seeing what the other guy thinks.
7:45 am
>> no, he was to th manner born and i wasn't. we were never close, so i guess it didn't surprise me. >> let me ask you -- >> i was amazed that he said what h h said when he said it, because i d dn't think it was more complimenting of his son, george w. bush, andn i didn't think it was very helpful to his other son who was running for president. i thought it was kind of a strange thing f f him to be doing. >> let me ask you about isis. so much debate about how to defeat them. president obama thinks he canan defeat or we can defeat isis would large numbers of u.s. boots on the ground. do you agre >> oh, you know, i don't agree or disagree. it seems to me that if you want to hold real estate and eliminate somebody from holding real estate, that requires people on the ground. but on the other hand, what we're dealing with here is a long war, a long struggle
7:46 am
enemy. it's going to take many, many years to deal with that problem >> quickly, if you were secretary of defense right now, would you recommend to the president that he put u.s. boots on the ground? >> i'm n secretary of defense. what i'd want to do is sit down with people andlook at it. it seems to me, that is only a part of the problem. if you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there. this president clearly has not made a decision with respectct to what the nature of the problem is we're facing or how it ought to be dealt with. >> former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld. as i said, you'll come back in our next half hour and talk about an exciting new venture for you. >> good. >> thank you very much. good t are you powered by protein? milk has 8 grams to help give you energy to unleash your potential. start every day with

it was a first run, mixed doubles match between low-ranked players. this i i the game. the player you'll see in the red and yellow shirt is the spaniard. he made a lot of errors. double faults, soft lobs and so on. he and his partner lost the first set in 20 minutes. well, nothing strange, you might think. except huge amounts of money were wagered on two gambling websites that the couple would lose, and t ty did. 6-0, 6-3. he said he had anee injury. the betting was so unusual, all four players were interviewed by officials. all denied throwing the game. it's possible someone may have learned that he had an injury and gambled on that. huge amounts were placece by a small number ofpeople, and it's not the first time he has attracted suspicious betting. tennis is under a cloud right now of corruption with those reports last4week alleging match fixing by 16 players over the past decades. half of them apparently
