7:02 am
america great again he has to make america safe again. but there's now bipartisan outrage to his plan. leaders here and abroad saying trump has gone too far. this morning, donald trump pushing forward with his call to ban muslims from coming to america. >> are you a bigot? >> not at all. probably the least of anybody you've ever met. >> reporter: in an exclusive on camera interview with barbara walters, trump explains the idea for the ban is a direct result from the attacks on the world trade center and last week's shooting in san bernardino. >> there are people that have tremendously bad intentions. we have to be tough. we have to be smart and we have to be vigilant. >> reporter: but does that mean being un-american? that's the way the plan is being described by the white house. >> what donald trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as president. >> reporter: republican leaders on capitol hill. >> what was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and more importantly it's not what this country stands for.
7:03 am
>> reporter: democratic front-runner hillary clinton seizing the moment trying to put all the gop candidates under the trump tent. >> they are all driving the exact narrative that jihadists want to advance. that we are at war, not with barbarists, violent murderers but with an entire religion. this is a grave mistake. >> reporter: but trump's fellow candidates are blasting him, as well. >> what he proposed was not well thought out, it was impulsive. he didn't think it through. it violates the constitution and places a religious test and isn't the best way to do it. >> you know how to make america great again, tell donald trump to go to hell. >> reporter: the chairman of the national republican committee saying we need to aggressively take on radical islamic terrorism but not at the expense of our american values. trump says he's the front-runner for a reason. his supporters know exactly what he stands for. >> i like what he had to say about the muslims.
7:04 am
we got to get control. >> it's a short-term problem that's -- i just think it's going to be good for the safety of the usa. >> and the worst thing that's ever happened to isis, the people in my party fully understand that. they're running against me. for the most part they have no poll numbers. i'm leading by a lot. they get it trying to get publicity for themselves. >> reporter: now leaders from all over the world condemning trump including france and the uk, indonesia, france. we want to show you. it is graphic. one of donald trump's hometown newspapers "the new york daily news" and shows trump with a large sword, his victim, the statue of liberty. the message, trump has declared his own personal jihad on american values. george and robin. >> he is stirring up so much emotion right now. want to bring in matthew dowd our political analyst served as senior adviser to president george w. bush and we heard josh earnest say this disqualifies donald trump from the presidency.
7:05 am
the question on the table right now does it increase his chances for the nomination? >> i don't -- obviously his voters don't think if you look at the polls in the last few days he's expanding his lead in places like new hampshire and nationally in the course of this. i think donald trump has a better read on the republican electorate and what connects with them emotionally and what they want to hear than any of the other 17 candidates running in the gop field and i think especially in the short term this only solidifies his support in the course of this primary. the question is can he expand beyond about a third of the vote? that's an open question but right now donald trump is the guy to beat in the republican primary. >> you also saw that chorus from the republican establishment taking him on yesterday but trump is holding a real threat over that establishment. the polls show that if he runs as an independent, about 68% of his followers would vote for him as an independent. >> yeah, absolutely. i think what this benefits donald trump for two reasons, george, is first of all when the
7:06 am
mainstream media and republican establishment attack him, he gains in the polls among his voters and among potential voters in the primary but i think the idea that he can keep an option out there open and to run as an independent i think empowers him in the course of this. the interesting thing, george, is the guy most likely to not run as an independent in the course of this race is donald trump because right now donald trump is the favorite to win the gop nomination. so the question actually goes to will other candidates run in the course of this as an independent? >> that's one of the questions but what does the republican establishment do in the meantime? you saw hillary clinton try to tar every candidate with the trump brush so how do they sort of immunize themselves against getting that infection? >> i think that's a real -- i mean i think that's a real problem. anybody in the course of this, any gop nominee in the course of this will be affected by this heated rhetoric and the problems that it's creating. i think that's a big problem for the republicans but right now donald trump is the big dog in the race. >> matthew dowd, thanks very much. >> all right, george, we move on
7:07 am
now to that breaking news, two afghan soldiers in the united states for training missing this morning. this comes, of course, with tensions running high and abc's pierre thomas is in washington with the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. military and law enforcement officials are searching for an afghan air force lieutenant and master sergeant who have been missing from an air force base in georgia for two days. the two were part of a u.s. military training program and were scheduled to graduate next week. the military tells us there is no evidence that they are a threat and some think they may be seeking asylum which was the case last year. at the time three afghan military personnel disappeared from massachusetts and were later found trying to get into canada and sent back home. we don't know why these two trainees in georgia went missing. it's a bit of a mystery but authorities do want to find them. robin. >> all right, pierre, thank you. again, no evidence of them being a threat but do want to find them. >> everyone so scared right now. the latest on the investigation into the san bernardino massacre.
7:08 am
focus on enrique marquez, the childhood friend and neighbor who bought the rifles the killers used and made some ominous comments to friends weeks before the attacks. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross is tracking the case. brian, the hunt for possible accomplices is pretty intense right now. >> that's true. this morning the fbi, that's a big issue particularly because authorities say syed farook as long as four years ago was trying to hide the fact that he had that friend buy him two high-powered assault rifles. it's one of the many pieces of evidence of how long and well this terror attack was planned. authorities have now put the mother of syed farook, rafia, on the u.s. terror watch list. days after the father, syed sr., was put on the list. she has not spoken publicly about her son but authorities say she was put on the list to make sure she does not try to leave the country. all this as officials continue to investigate who may have helped the terror couple in their attack.
7:09 am
one week ago today. but as a new photo emerged from inside that conference room, moments before the attack, the presentation of the employee of the year award, authorities say syed farook and tashfeen malik had plenty of help getting their money and their guns all lined up. authorities say 24-year-old enrique marquez, a punk rock fan, convert to islam and close friend of farook has admitted he bought the guns for farook and did so officials say because farook did not want his name to be on file in connection with such serious weapons. that was almost four years ago. >> mrs. marquez -- >> reporter: marquez's mother would not talk about the investigation but on a facebook post the night of the attack marquez wrote i'm very sorry, guys. it was a pleasure. the next day he checked himself into a mental facility. friends believe he may have known something about the plot in advance. >> he says something along the lines of there's a lot of muslims in our own backyard just
7:10 am
ready to go haywire and attack and we didn't think nothing of it. >> reporter: law enforcement officials tell abc news this morning that even though farook and his wife tried to destroy their cell phones and computers, authorities have now recovered some information including images of other targets the couple might have been planning to attack. robin. >> brian, thank you. for more let's bring in former fbi special agent brad garrett and pick up on what brian was saying about other possible attack points. where do investigators go from there. >> the real key are there other players and are they about to launch an attack? if you think about it, if he's had these weapons for three to four years, that means he's been thinking about this for a period of time. the big concern, is there an attack they can't stop yet. >> having those guns for that amount of time and apparently going to great lengths to hide the ownership. >> exactly. goes to mind-set. goes to he was thinking about doing something years ago but for whatever reason it culminated last week.
7:11 am
>> marquez, people want to know, are there others out there that could have aided both of them. >> i think it's likely only because to pull off an attack like this, it's maybe even planned for maybe a long time you have to get help. somebody had to teach you to shoot, build pipe bombs, et cetera. >> investigators really want to get at the root of what inspired them or who inspired them. >> exactly because that may lead you to other people. is there an anwar awlaki type person that inspired them out there. >> we'll move on to the problem of anti-muslim attacks on the rise since last week's massacre and there are concerns donald trump's comments could incite more violence. matt gutman is in san bernardino with that part of the story. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, george. a week after the attacks in that conference building behind me, eeveryone is aye afraid. muslim groups are saying they are now the targets of increasing intimidation and
7:12 am
forcing some people to change the way they dress, even pray. it's being called the biggest spike in anti-islamic incidents since 9/11 and not just rhetoric. in philadelphia surveillance video of a pig's head thrown at a mosque. the fbi now investigating. threatening voice mails left at a mosque in st. louis. >> come my way and i'll [ bleep ] you all. cut your [ bleep ] off. >> reporter: in dallas, i hope you get sprayed with pig's blood, okay. you are just [ bleep ]. >> reporter: this palm beach florida mosque vandalized, windows smashed all triggering fear. >> you feel scared as an american about what's happening in our country but then at the very same time you're afraid for your own life because of, you know, what people are doing in retaliation. >> reporter: the council on american-islamic relations saying the spike follows both the san bernardino rampage and donald trump's calls for a ban on muslim immigration. and here in san bernardino, intimidation. the mosque syed farook attended threatened the night after the rampage and mosque attendance is

7:14 am
he was there to pray. robin. >> something to keep in mind, matt. thank you. to new problems for chipotle. at least 80 college students in boston fell sick after eating at one of the restaurants. this comes after that e. coli outbreak that sickened dozens across the country and abc's linsey davis is there outside of chipotle in boston. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this chipotle location remains closed this morning. the boston health department has said that this is not another outbreak of e. coli but likely norovirus. now, this all started with an e-mail that went out to boston college athletes, do not eat at chipotle. this morning, another blow to the popular fast food chain chipotle. boston college saying 80 of its students sickened after eating at this restaurant in boston this weekend. including half of the basketball team. >> some of them like couldn't get out of bed. >> reporter: health officials in boston say the cause is likely norovirus, a highly contagious virus with symptoms including
7:15 am
stomach pain, nausea and fevers. >> one of our friends said when she walked out, there were like ten people in the waiting room all buckets just throwing up. >> reporter: this isn't the first concern like this for the loved burrito hot spot. earlier this year 52 people fell ill to an e. coli outbreak and the restaurant closed several stores to discard ingredients before re-opening. chipotle telling abc news we do not have any evidence to suggest this incident is related to the previous e. coli incident. but the chain's latest problems mean more bad news for investors. chipotle's stock, once among the hottest around, plummeting more than 20% since last year. so here's the thing, a chipotle employee was sick while working a shift here late last week but the boston health department says that it's still working definitively to determine the source of the norovirus and, robin, good news here the boston college basketball team is expected to play as usual tonight.

deafness when you literally cannot hear when you're looking at it. does that happen to you guys? >> yes. >> there is a medical reason for this. we want you to look at a brain scan doing a computer puzzle. they're not hearing a sound despite having tones pumped in their ears. the red wave you see there shows how high it registers sound when not engaged and then this green line shows what we hear when -- how it drops considerably when we're concentrating on something more complicated. the reason is, guy, that a person's sense of vision and hearing are located in a shared and limited region of the brain called the association cortex. your brain has to choose, it can't multitask. doing both things or getting stimulated both ways it has to pick which one is more valuable. >> can women do it better than men, though. i think they can. >> of course, they can. >> there you go. ey can. >> there you go. here's another great "improve this!" tip from lowe's. from everybody you're smelling

8:12 am
kim and kanye's baby boy named saint. and this morning new revelations about how he came into the world. during this pregnancy kim reportedly suffered from placenta accreta, the same condition she had when her daughter north was born. >> she did have some issues, and it was an incredibly painful experience, but she had her family by her side and definitely was a comfort to the reality star. >> reporter: placenta accreta occurs when the placenta and its blood vessels grow too deeply into the uterine wall and remain there. for her first pregnancy the placenta had to be removed by the doctor's hands writing in her blog in november, "it was the most painful experience of my life." >> hopefully this is something the doctor can fix and we can just move on from this kind of complicated chapter. >> reporter: before the birth kim expressed her fear of reliving the same experience writing, "there's not a whole lot i can do to prevent it so my anxiety is a little high leading
8:13 am
up to the delivery." >> kim knew this was going to be an extremely difficult and painful delivery process and she expressed those fears, accepted them and at the end of the day knew it would be all right because as a source tells us she is now overwhelmed but incredibly excited to bring home that baby boy. >> reporter: kim now hoping her experience will help others saying, "all you can do is be hopeful, get the best information out there and just be prepared." so here with me now is abc's chief women's health correspondent dr. jennifer ashton, so what do we know about placenta accreta? >> so let's start with the normal placenta which, by the way, is a fetal organ that provides the nutrients and normally sits inside the uterine cavity and comes out without too much difficulty after delivery. when you have accreta or increta or percreta these are major abnormals in the way the placenta and the blood supply which is massive attaches to the wall of the uterus and in the case of accreta, it can get deeper into the wall.
8:14 am
increta into the muscle and percreta through the uterus and attaches to the bowel or bladder so this is potentially a catastrophic ob complication. >> wow. how common is it? >> it's only about 1 in 2500 pregnancies but when there are 4 million births every year, you're talking some significant numbers. >> not an exaggeration to say it's potentialally life-threatening. >> it's potentially life-threatening. when we detach it it's not painful if you have an epidural but it can be very dramatic so we have a situation here where we are all hands on deck. this is not a home birth scenario. this is not a midwife delivery scenario. this is an in the operating room with units of blood available, anesthesiologists there, potentially surgical equipment in trays that aren't there for a normal birth because we want to have everything in a row so that if the worst case scenario happens, we can remove the placenta. >> i'm thinking your advice would you if you hear you have this, you need to be in a setting that is safe. >> oh, absolutely. you need a couple of themes,
8:15 am
trust your obstetrician, that's the most important thing. ask questions. you're never going to ask a question that's stupid and, again, you have to consider the risks versus the benefits because there are two lives at stake. >> so true. so true. two lives at stake. dr. jen ashton will be answering your questions, so post them, please, on her twitter account or our facebook page, george. >> lara, thanks. another headline about health for a lot of families, pretty startling new study for parents with slightly older kids. the number of children diagnosed with adhd is soaring, up 43% in less than a decade. dr. rich besser is here with more on this. so do more kids have adhd or just more getting diagnosed? >> i mean, that's the big question. when they looked across every group, young children, tweens, teens, boys, girls, they saw the numbers going up. the study wasn't designed to figure out why it is going up but there's a number of thoughts. first is in girls we're recognizing they may not be hyperactive but they may still have adhd. also teens can have this. we used to think it was only something in very young children.
8:16 am
more children with health insurance, so they're getting seen which is a good thing and then in school for special services, sometimes they need to have this label. >> so, what's the tip-off for parents between just regular unruly restless behavior and adhd? >> yeah, i mean, it's normal to not focus and to be out of control. the question is, is it to the point where it's affecting your life in school, your life at home, your ability to make friends? and so there's three behaviors we really look at. the first is inattention, a child who is constantly daydreaming. they can't focus. the second is hyperactivity jumping out of the chair and then impulsivity, they can't stop to think. they'll jump out in the street and interrupt every other child. if those things are really a problem, you really need to take care of that. >> what do you do? >> see your doctor and they'll do an evaluation. it doesn't mean they have adhd. they'll give the child's teacher a questionnaire and do a full evaluation to see if there's a need for therapy. in the right child with getting this diagnosis and treatment, it

for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. life... is unpredictable. life is deaths. and births. sickness and health.
