don't forgive, don't forget. >> i told you don't ask me that question. >> donald trump takes his feud with fox news directly to bill o'reilly and rejects the fox anchor's request for forgiveness. >> you areaking this much more seriously than i am. >> while trump's rivals take the most of the moment. >> interesting side show, greatest show on earth. this is not a show. this is serious. >> with the iowa caucuses just four days away we have brand new poll numbers in the race on both sides. new arrests overnight in the standoff in oregon as the leader of the antigovernment occupation tells his followers to go home. top u.s. health officials urging quick reaction against the zika virus.
a hockey player slams into an official sending him into the ice. the player claims it was accidental. the league may see things differently. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1 a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to "today." it's a thursday morning. do we need an instant replay. >> this is the calgary flames. i think that accident might earn him a couple of days off. >> we will have more on that in just a moment. our top story on a thursday morning, the donald trumpless republican debate a day away.
it is add ag new wringal to the already wild race. we have it covered with peter alexander. >> reporter: this will be the venue for tonight's debate with or without donald trump. a source familiar with the situation tells nbc news that fox news ceo reached out to trump through the women in his life trying to see whether his decision to skip the debate is a done deal indonald trump betting he is bigger than fox news. the republican front runner will be in des moines tonight but not at the final gop debate instead touting a special event for veteran veterans. late wednesday trump differented his boycott on fox news. >> they came out with this ridiculous pr statement like
>> host bill o'reilly all but begged the billionaire to reconsider, appealing to his appetite and christian faith. >> forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks. just want you to consider it. >> trump refusing to back down. >> even though you and i had an agreement that you wouldn't ask me that, which we did, i will therefore forget that you asked me that. >> here in iowa -- >> if gentle donald cannot handle megyn kelly. >> reporter: ted cruz hasn't given up on his dual even naming a time and place. tell >> whether we are in fact
expedient to get elected. >> reporter: chris christie calling trump's move a mistake. >> i think anytime you get a podium and a microphone and 15 to 20 million people watching in an election campaign you should take it. >> reporter: jeb bush telling reporters i have a $20 bet he shows up. rushing to defense, rush limbaugh. >> he knows he is owning the entire event by not showing up. >> reporter: he praised megyn kelly in 2011 discussing a debate trump was trying to host going viral. >> do you think you are a better moderator than i am? >> i could never beat you. that would not be close. you have done a great job, by the way, and i mean it. >> reporter: obviously that
our new poll shows trump in first place ahead of ted cruz in iowa by seven points. his lead in new hampshire closer to 20 points. remember no non-incumbent republican president has ever won iowa and new hampshire. >> let's bring in nicole wallace who served as an adviser to the mccain/palin campaign. do you think donald trump has a change of heart and shows up tonight? >> i would say maybe before the o'reilly interview. >> if he is not there physically, will he be there as a presence in some sense? >> when you are up as far as he is in the polls you are always going to be there. they are all still running against him. >> isn't the lunacy of this -- donald trump says he is angry over that statement that fox news put out a couple of days
written by a child and mocked him. this is donald trump, running an entire campaign on mocking people and using childish words like "loser." >> megyn kelly's original sin in the mind of donald trump is she asked him if he was a war against women. what is interesting to me is that donald trump is engaged in a hot war against fox news' most prominent woman. the universal consensus is it is show strength but i think it can show a weakness when women start evaluating him as commander in chief. >> on the fox side, she has been victimized by the words of donald trump over the last six months. how do you think she must feel watching bill o'reilly trying to get donald trump to give them forgiveness? >> probably a twilight zone
she is tough. i think the fact that fox news stood by her is an important one. i think all women in the work place would hope their work place would stand by them. this is the highest stakes war he has started and i'm not sure if he will win in the end. >> if you love trump you love -- >> and plenty of people do. >> if you don't like trump it is petulant and icky. >> the sliver gets bigger should he emerge as the republican party's nominee and have to appeal to a general electort it will have to change the way he combats people he doesn't agree with. he is treating megyn kelly as an
dared to ask him a question he didn't like. this is a vulnerability, not a strength. >> you said donald trump will be there whether physically or not. doesn't this change the focus to ted cruz? aren't the other candidates on that stage going to level their attacks on him? >> they might but the other campaigns, i checked in with all of them last night, they are barely concealing their enthusiasm for a debate not dominated by questions for trump. trump had the best moment of his campaign when he stood in defense of new york values at the last campaign. it is a missed opportunity for trump and one the other campaigns are looking forward to. >> thanks very much. nice to see you. >> there is a bit of debate drama on the democratic side, as well. should more be added. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are weighing in as their
andrea mitchell is in des moines this morning. >> reporter: right you are, there is a debate over debate from a democratic side. we'll get to that in a moment. with just four days to go our new poll shows a very tight race on the democratic side here in iowa. now it all depends on whose supporters come out to vote. >> i will work my heart out for you. >> reporter: our new nbc news poll has hillary clinton and bernie sanders virtually tied in iowa. >> you are going to have to fight and that is what this campaign is about. >> reporter: clinton has a small lead over sanders, 448% to 45%. during an interview president obama praised clinton. on wednesday sanders got his own meeting with the president afterwards telling lester holt
>> indicated it is up to the voters. >> reporter: sanders has a crushing 19 point lead over clinton in new hampshire. the new hampshire union leader and msnbc proposed one more debate, not sanctioned by the democratic party. clinton tells chris matthews she will show up if sanders does. the sanders campaign proposed three more debates saying if the clinton campaign would commit to this schedule we would ask the dnc to arrange a debate. >> she is raising money from a philadelphia investment firm. >> reporter: the clinton campaign released this photo showing the candidate meeting with faith leaders before attending the investment house fundraiser.
to iowa for the final push before the caucuses. today the washington post editorial board has slammed bernie sanders policy proposal saying they are his own brand of fiction. >> thank you so much. by the way, we are taking the show on the road for the iowa caucuses. we will be live in des moines next monday as voters get set to cast their votes. we have new developments on the occupation of federal wild life refuge in oregon. three new arrests overnight. now the group's leader who was arrested a couple of days ago is telling his followers to stand down and go home. nbc's joe friaryer has more. >> reporter: the fbi has set up check points. eight militants have left. the rest were allowed to leave
occupation is quickly shrinking. the anti-government activists are getting a message from their jailed leader ammon bundy. >> to those at the refuge, i love you. let us take the fight from here. >> reporter: the number of militants is dwindling as law enforcement sets up road blocks and check points. >> it is time for everybody in this illegal occupation to move on. >> reporter: 11 of the group's leaders are behind bars. seven of them appeared in federal court each facing a federal charge. theyook control of the refuge demanding the release of ranchers convicted of setting fires on federal land. this weekk the militants were arrested along a rural highway during a violent confrontation of authorities that ended in the death of occupier lavoy finicum.
leave the refuge. as the fbi and our partners demonstrated actions are not without consequences. >> reporter: investigators offered few details but a senior law enforcement official tells nbc news one vehicle hit a snow bank and finicum emerged with a firearm and was shot and killed. mark mcconnell says he was at the scene and while he didn't see the shooting he was told by a witness that finicum charged police. conflicting accounts are circulating saying finicum's hands were in the air. the rancher was remembered in a candle light vigil. this morning itt is unclear how many militants remain at the refuge. because of the check points no new members can join and anyone who leaves cannot return. >> thanks.
to rely on their local wal-mart store will have to find somewhere else to shop. closing more than 150 stores. this is going to have a big impact. >> it will be very tough. a lot of places where walmart hires hundreds of people and often small local stores are put out of business. some of those walmarts are closing leaving people unemployed and residents with no place to shop. >> reporter: it is devastating for a lot of people. right now many are the only grocery and pharmacy around. and in some places closing the store would leave behind a food desert. >> when you don't have the transportation or the means to get to where you need to get to it will hurt. >> reporter: the pain will be widespread. walmart is shutting down 154 stores in 27 states and puerto rico creating food deserts in
and kansas. >> they are packing up and leaving the town high and dry. >> renee smith's family owned a small grocery store in oriental. walmart came to oriental forcing her to board up her store. now walmart is closing and many residents are bitter. >> they knew they were leaving. it has been within three months. >> reporter: it is a similar story in many towns. in italy, texas where the town's only pharmacy in the walmart is closing today. >> why go to expense of building a building and then all of a sudden -- >> reporter: a spokesman from walmart said we never want to walk away from the opportunity to serve customers. we share the community's disappointment. >> i don't like it at all. it makes it inconvenient.
>> walmart says it is committed to opening 300 stores in the so-called food desert areas and exceeded that goal but that won't do much for people in the towns where they are closing up shops and leaving. >> thank you. the michigan legislature poised to approve an emergency spending bill today aimed at getting the lead out of flint's drinking water. rachel mad ow hosted a town hall. she displayeye a lead pipe. starting in april water from the flint river corroded the pipe. flint is no longer using the river water but the mayor says no time table on when the pipes will be replaced. >> our trust has been broken in the city of flint. because that happened, if we
not going to trust that. >> michigan's governor rick snyder admitted he has no plans to replace the pipes saying it isn't on his short term agenda. a u.n. panel is reportedly recommending rechargeable lithium patries be banned as cargo concerned they can create fires. experts believe at least three cargo planes have been destroyed by lithiumi ion batteries. they are used to power everything from cell phones to hybrid cars. back to the video that we showed you, a defenseman for the flames is apologizing for knocking down an official during last night's game. dennis weidman was skating towards the bench. he said it was completely unintentional.

word of emergency meeting by the world health organization one day after president obama called for swifter action against the virus. we heard the world health organization say the threat is explosive. seems like alarm bells are ringing everywhere. >> in reality this has been brewing for some time. this mosquito borne virus that had the first start in the 1940s and made a slow and quicker migration from africa to asia to the pan american area. and i think the urgency is really that this link to small brain and significant impact on newborns is so powerful and so concerning that i think it's lending credence to this concern right now. >> absolutely. let's get to some of the myths and fact and fiction. how is it transmitted? >> it is transmitted not from
through a mosquito bite. an infected person when the virus is circulating in their blood has to get bitten by a mosquito that acts as a vector that infects somebody else. there are case reports of suspicion that there might be some person to person contact through sexual contact. the main mode of transmission is the mosquito bite. >> one thing people believe is that all women of child bearing age are at risk. >> the way we understand it right now is if you have been infected the symptoms last a couple days up to a week. after that period of time you are no longer able to transmit to a child. i think the recommendation for most of us is if you are traveling to a country like this and you are a woman planning to become pregnant after you return you should wait at least a week or a few weeks to ensure that an
occurred. >> sexual contact, this is saying -- >> there are at least two that we are aware of where there might have been transmission via sexual contact and there is also reports that the viral can be found in urine and saliva as well as semen. the main mode of transmission is via mosquito bite. >> are these mosquitos already here in the u.s.? >> the mosquitos themselves are here as of today we have not had any locally-acquired infections. that means that the mosquito is in the united states particularly in the gulf coast, southeast area as well as southern california. none of the mosquitos here to
with the zika virus. travelers who are bitten can transmit the virus to other people and that is how it can spread. >> the type of mosquitos that could carry it are here but we don't have mosquitos shown to have the virus right now. men, we hear a lot about women, should men be concerned? >> the main concern is just transmission if they get infected they can transmit. there was a news story about the possible link of zika virus to an illness which could be treated. in that regard it is a concern but remember that the vast majority of people infected with zika virus are asymptom attic and it is usually joint pain, fever. coming up next a new body for barbie?

lenient a store's policy was on returns the less likely customers were to return the items. the researchers think this is due to what they call the endowment effect, a theory that the longer we possess something the more value we place on it. so even if we don't wear the shirt we don't bother to return it. for me i think it is laziness. >> some people are embarrassed to return things. >> i think i would keep it the more used to it i got. an up and coming pga golfer pokes fun at the pga tour. first this is thomas peters. this is the before picture. this is the after. this is the one that the pga uses as his official head shot.
