7:04 am
thank you for joining us, mr. trump. i want to pick up where cecilia just left off. it seems like fox news might be taunting you a little bit saying -- suggesting you're showing fear about being questioned by megyn kelly in that debate. >> no, i have no fear. i don't think she's a good professional. i don't think she's professional at all. she's very biased against me. i've done six debates now including one with her. i've won every one of them according to every online poll if you look at drudge -- >> so you will be there thursday? >> excuse me? >> you will be there thursday. >> i'm making a decision. i think she's not a professor ago. i don't think she's a very talented person. i don't think she's a good reporter. i think they can do a lot better than that i love doing the debates. i do think they should get competent reporters, shouldn't use somebody like her. she's not very good at what she does, i will tell you. >> we should assume you'll be there thursday night. >> well, you can probably make thinking about it. poll.
7:05 am
expect you to be the nominee. which part of the job of president gives you the most pause? >> well, that's a very daunting task and we're in deep trouble, the country is a mess. you look at the iran deal which is so sad. now they're taking that money and spending it with everybody else including terrorists, by the way. you saw that with secretary kerry the other day which was disgusting when he expects it to be given to terror. what's he making the deal for if they give it to terror? you look at so many different aspects. our economy, look at the stock market today and the worst opening in its history we've gone down so much. we're in a bubble and, you know, frankly if there's going to be a bubble popping i hope they pop before i become president because i don't want to inherit all this stuff. i'd rather have it the day before rather than the day after, i will tell you that. >> ted cruz is coming at you hard in iowa launching a new ad today in iowa. here's a part of it. >> would president trump ban partial birth abortion.
7:06 am
>> and what does trump think about iowa? >> how stupid are the people of iowa? >> he's backing that up on the stump saying a candidate who for 60 years supported partial birth abortion, we should not be surprised if as president he does not defend the right to life. >> george, i'm pro-life. 100%. he knows it. everybody knows it. and as far as the iowa, i was talking about they were backing somebody and i didn't say just iowa, i said the people of iowa, i said the people of the united states, it's just like his last ad which he had to take down because he said i ripped down a woman's house which i didn't because of eminent domain. eminent domain you wouldn't have roads, you wouldn't have highways, you wouldn't have hospitals without eminent domain or the keystone pipeline ever gets built so he really does lie. he's so nervous -- i saw him the other day. he is so nervous, he is such a mess his polls have gone down like i've never seen polls gone down. people realize he probably can't
7:07 am
he was born in canada and now all offof -- >> where is the line in that add. you used to be strongly pro-choice, now strongly pro-life. what caused the conversion? >> i'm saying i'm pro-life and he's not making it that way. yesterday he said that i ripped down a woman's house for an economic development job. i never ripped down the house. i never -- i decided i wouldn't do that. i mean he's just saying lie after lie. it's so -- it's not becoming and he's got a problem. he's got a very much bigger problem. there's a lot of people think he can't run for president. he was born in canada. there are many constitutional scholars including laurence tribe, including many others, i mean, i'm not even talking about laurence tribe of harvard anore. we have so many others that say flatly he is unable to run, illinois has a problem. they might not be able to certify him because of it so he's got to get that straightened out otherwise he can't even run for office. >> you have a lot of top republicans nervous including
7:08 am
establishment should rally behind anyone not named cruz or trump after iowa and new hampshire. how do you respond? >> well, look, he's an old-time politician, up in my office looking for money for many times and he's an old-time politician who's losing his grip and, frankly, i haven't heard the name haley barber mentioned in a year and a half and i guess people don't like to get out. the fact is whether they like it or not i'm in first place by a lot. cruz is in second place. and a lot of that is because people are fed up with the old-time politicians like haley barber that haven't done anything and you look, we have barack obama for the last eight years because of people like haley barbour that don't know what they're doing. they're only good for them 168s not for the people. >> thanks for your time this morning. >> thank you very much. our poll on trump shows an incredible conversion, six month p months ago two-thirds said they wouldn't support him. two two-thirds say he'll be the nominee and say they can support him. >> big change.
7:09 am
matthew dowd and will join us from home in austin, texas. you heard donald trump with george sounding very confident yet again. the poll numbers as george was alluding to and i believe back in august, you were saying this was his nomination to lose. >> yeah, he's got double-digit leads nationally and in all of the key states coming up and i think donald trump has an opportunity to do something no gop candidate for president who was an incumbent has ever done which is win iowa and new hampshire. no gop candidate has ever done president. if he wins iowa he's on a roll and i think the dominos start to fall. matt. and are we going to see and hear the same donald trump that we're seeing and hearing today or does he have to change his message a little bit for november? >> well, i think donald trump's smart enough to know and brilliant on his own brand knows as dominant a position he is in the gop race right now he's as
7:10 am
the broad population and he'll have to do some shifts as soon as he clinches the nomination and move forward and towards the center. i think you'll see him do that because he understands his brand and he understands the voters are different in the fall than right now in on the other side of the aisle how do you see the democratic states right now? >> i think if bernie sanders wins iowa, he wins new hampshire and the race gets reset in the course of that. bernie sanders right now, he needs to get knocked down in the backfield by hillary clinton, otherwise he's got open field running and no telling where that goes. >> was counting on that football analogy. was going to just wait until you gave that to us, matt. thanks so much. as always. >> for his voters on monday. the massive cleanup from this weekend's deadly blizzard. it's warming up a bit in the east but baltimore and washington still digging out this morning. the federal government closed for a second day and here you see rfk stadium, those are the streets of d.c. but that's rfk stadium. their actually dumping the snow from the streets into the

7:12 am
being told they may not see a plow until tomorrow. >> plowing went down the drain and they did not have plan b. >> reporter: the weight of all that standing snow has claimed its share of roofs. in silver spring, maryland, it was a church that was a victim. for a second day in a row the federal government has shut down. employees again told to stay home while crews work plowing 4400 miles of roadway. the national park service has another 300 miles and 155 bridges to make sure are clear. with the help of this special rail yard plow, metro lines are mostly open this morning. but many city buses still snowed in with limited service. schools too closed for a second day. >> it's getting old real quick. >> reporter: new york city was generally up and running monday but much of queens remains unplowed. >> the people don't clear their sidewalks we're going to start now the process of applying fines. >> reporter: on long island this jet engine brought in to clear snow from train tracks there. this drone showing philadelphia from above and this morning

7:14 am
people want to know what is the possibility of a big outbreak here in the u.s.? >> yeah, well, we have that mosquito in parts of the south and i asked the cdc about this. they say we're going to see small outbreaks due to people coming back from countries who are infected. they get bit by a mosquito and spread it to others but they don't think we'll see big outbreaks. we haven't seen that with other infections spread by the same mosquito like dengue. >> what should people do if they're thinking about traveling to these areas of the world. >> you know, if you're pregnant the cdc says don't go. for other people if you go, use pellant to reduce the chances you'll get bit and when you come back, if you have fever, joint pain, red eyes or rash, see your doctor so you can be tested, to other people. questions, rich. thank you and you'll be taking their questions throughout the morning. @drrichardbesser. good morning, amy. >> good morning.
