7:01 am
vegas, good morning, tom. >> reporter: good morning. [ audio problems [ [ can. >> reporter: last night he won by such a large margin he was in the victory stage hours before they could figure out second and third. >> thank you. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump winning the nevada caucuses and heading into super tuesday with real momentum. >> we won the evangelicals. we won with young. we won with old. we won with highly educated. we won with poorly educated. i love the poorly educated. >> reporter: trump rallying his supporters late into the night. >> grab, grab, grab. you know, i get greedy. i want money, money. i'll tell you what we're going to do, right. we get greedy, right.
7:02 am
for the united states. we're going to grab and grab and grab. >> reporter: overnight senator cruz thanking his supporters. >> is that the only campaign that has beaten donald trump and the only campaign that can beat donald trump is this campaign. >> reporter: trump taking his final shots before the caucuses at senator cruz. >> he's like a baby compared to some of the people i have to -- he is like a little baby. soft, weak little baby by comparison but for lying he's the best i've ever seen. he's the best. >> reporter: cruziring back. all day tuesday making the case it's unclear what trump even stands for. >> and, frankly, i'm not willing to gamble my daughter's future with donald trump. the truth of the matter is donald became president nobody knows what the heck he would do. he doesn't know what the heck he would do. >> reporter: this as senator marco rubio continues to win
7:03 am
the field is too splintered. >> first of all this choice remains multicandidate. ben carson and ted cruz and myself. hard core of republicans who do not want donald trump the nominee. as long as they're being divided up for three or four people, it's good for donald. >> reporter: they'll drop out then. trump predicting a rubio/trump rumble could be coming. >> yeah, rubio. who, by the way, i've been very nice to. i've been very nice -- people say why are you so nice, because he hasn't hit me. when he does, he will -- you'll see what happens. >> reporter: now, one good sign for senator marco rubio is that one good sign is he rang strong strongest against caucusgoers who made up their mind in the last week. one debris and less than six days of campaigning to make the argument he should be the nominee before super tuesday.
7:04 am
let's bring it to donald trump. mr. trump, contemplations scongratulations on your victory. the drudge report, want to show it to everyone. right now. are they right? >> well, i hope see. we certainly have an advantage, george. it was a great night. it was a great day and we were any standard. >> you know, you're winning despite the fact you have taken many positions at odds with the republican party, supported democrats in the past, even more you're winning -- it's remarkable winning against a united front of elected officials. want to show this chart from fivethirtyate. you have 0. will it make it harder to unite the party. >> i have many endorsements but i don't go oututnd seek them. now as of yesterday people were calling and a lot of people were calling and i'll have many endorsements but it's not something i want to work for to
7:05 am
a waste of time. endorsements mean very little. we have as you know, we have some excellent endorsements and something i'm very proud of but it's a lot of work. you know, they want me to go to certain area, have a big news conference, i would rather be with the people and rather work with the people and get the kind of numbers we got yesterday because those numbers are amazing. we won with every single group, every single group. men, women, evangelicals, we won with all sorts of education, if you talk about education at the highest level to a lower level we won with everything, george. >> it was a pretty sweeping victory last night. you also heard ted cruz in that piece from tom llamas. mamao rubio making the same point with robin coming up that nobody knows what you would do, how you would actually accomplish your goals as president. they're saying you haven't laid out the details. can you tell us right now what are the first three things you would do on day one in a trump white house? >> well, the first thing i'd do
7:06 am
executive orders signed by our president. especially the one on the border where people are allowed to come in and just pour into our country like swiss cheese. i'll work out immediately to knock out obamacare and start taking care of our vets and military. >> you haven't said how you'll replace it. >> our vets have been absolutely treated horribly and we're going to take care of our vets. that's been a very, very big part of my campaign, the vets. >> making the point you haven't laid out specifically how you're going to achieve those goals. how you'll build the wall or replace obamacare. >> i've been specific in terms of the wall and in terms of obamacare, what i'm doing is very specific, whether we use health care savings accounts and that could happen because a lot of people are liking it a lot, obamacare is falling out under its own weight dead by 2017. people are not signing up for it.
7:07 am
the rates and premiums going up by 45%, 55%, 65% and we'll have it at a fraction of the cost and i'm very specific on it, george. i'm a very specific person, believe me. >> finally, mr. trump, have you given any thought to who your vice president nominee might be if, indeed, you are the nominee and whether it would be an elected official or a more outside the box candidate. >> well, i have given't given thought. i think we'll do fantastic and amazing what you're looking at and some states where already i'm very close in texas and, you know, you have a senator from texas, i'm leading in -- this will be the following week but florida is looking fantastically, ohio is looking great. you look at the different numbers and the different states, we joust got numbers in on georgia. doing fantastically well, arkansas, so we're looking very, very strong, i think, george and we look forward to it. it's going to be an interesting
7:08 am
it's going to be an interesting week. >> we got to go. can you give me one name? >> of a vice president? >> uh-huh. >> too early, george. you'll be one of the first to know. maybe not the first but you'll be one of the first to know. >> mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. >> as you alluded to earlier this morning i spoke with senator marco rubio and i began by asking him about his second place finish in nevada. >> we always want to do better. i lived there 25 years ago, 30 years ago and it was a great experience. we love coming back. we have a lot of family members there but always want to do better. we feel good about our second place finish. of course, you always want to be first but this is an unusual year and the nevada caucus is different than any other vote we'll see around the country, new experience and a lot of people turned out. i congratulate donald. he had a good showing. we picked up significant number of delegates there and we move on to the other states. we have a big week next tuesday.
7:09 am
for donald trump and he said that many are wondering why you haven't gone after him. even he has said that you haven't hit him and we know that the next debate is coming up. do you expect to be -- are you going to change your tactics and be more aggressive towards donald trump. >> yeah, i don't understand this. i know there's a craving in the media for peoplpl to attack each other but i've never been a campaign that attacks people. now if i've been attacked i responded and we set the record straight about policy differences. but we'll have a debate tomorrow night and if there are policy differences we'll talk about those. if he says something i don't agree with like he did in the last debate about george bush being responsible for 9/11 i'll correct him on it. >> you did say the other day that it seems like voters are gravitating toward the one who is the angriest. you didn't mention any names but many people assumed that you were referring to donald trump. were you? >> well, sure, his rhetoric is one thatthats into that anger.
7:10 am
it's one of the reasons why i ran for the senate five years ago. i was really upset about the direction of our country and inability of the republican party to do anything about it but anger alone won't solve our problems. you also have to know what you're going to do about it. running for president voters need to know what you're going to do and donald hasn't outlined exactly what he'll do. he'll tell us what the result will be but refuses to explain how it's going to happen. >> there have been four contests so far across the state. various parts of the country. and you have yet to come out on top. with super tuesday coming out, what do you need to do. >> i think what people need to understand about these contests between now and march 15th, all are places that award delegates which is how the nomination is decided. it's not decided by how many states you win but how many delegates you have and awarding them proportionately. march 15th, you're in ohio and florida that award them all at once. that's where you have to start winning states and we feel very
7:11 am
>> you picked up five delegates yesterday. and you really picked up many more key endorsements from the establishment. but we've seen with both republicans and democrats that voters aren't really embracing the establishment, politics as usual. are you concerned that being that type of backing may actually work against you and your campaign? >> in order for the republican nominee to become the president of the united states, it has to be someone that can bring the republican party together and then grow it, as well. and what we're showing is the ability to bring it together, to bring together all kinds of people within the republican party including some for whom i wasn't the first choice. >> thank you so much, sir. >> thank you. thanks so much. >> and it should be another lively debate tomorrow night. >> super tuesday coming up. right now donald trump ahead in all those states with the possible exception of texas >> that's it. we move on to those severe storms slamming the south. at least 27 tornadoes reported and linzie janis is on the scene in pensacola, florida. good morning, linzie.
7:12 am
the devastation here is incredible. a tornado ripping through this apartment complex throwing debris over these cars and look over here. the entire second floor of this apartment building sheared off. you can see right into people's living rooms. >> look up. look up. >> reporter: more than two dozen reported tornados tearing through parts of the gulf states. overnight pensacola, florida, taking a direct hit as lightning illuminates the sky, you can see this massive funnel cloud moving in before cutting a two-mile path of destruction. >> the tornado just touched down within 30 seconds two buildings are completely collapsed. >> reporter: how did the tornado come through? this morning the sheriff showing me these apartment buildings destroyed. >> this is where we lean heavily upon state and federal agencies and, of course, thank god for the red cross. >> reporter: and in st. james parish, louisiana. >> oh, my goodness. holy cow. >> reporter: watch as this

obliterates this rv park. winds tossing nearly 200 rvs, ashley east stepping outside her camper as soon as it was safe. >> i just immediately took off running to help people. >> reporter: two people killed and dozens injured. first responders searching for those who may still be trapped in the mangled mess. >> we're hoping we can get down into those debris piles and try to find people. >> reporter: nearby another twister tearing into this gym filled with people. ripping the wall right off the side of the building. >> i started screaming everybody get down. everybody get down. take cover. >> reporter: a reported tornado plowing through assumption parish, louisiana, too, winds picking up this parked pickup and slamming it to the ground. this tractor trailer turned over. and check out these three tornadic waterspouts over lake pontchartrain just outside new orleans. authorities are working to secure this site so that residents can come back and try to salvage some belongings.
7:14 am
one was even seriously injured here. >> thank you for that. more now on those dangerous storms and new warnings are out this morning, right, sam? >> absolutely, robin. our hearts are with those people in pensacola. incredible damage and in louisiana, as well. where are those storms this morning? they're already alive and kicking and tornado watch out for a good part of florida and watch this into south georgia. now south georgia, i want to tell you that we've seen some tornado warnings out in the last hour in that line of storms. please pay particular attention to this and watch this. as that squall line fins to move east, some areas will see strong wupdzs and even some hail. raleigh-durham, all the way into southern virginia. i want you to watch that today. these storms are still strong as they move in at 6:00 p.m., d.c., philly, you're in line for that squall line. only good news, jersey, new york city into new york state and connecticut and also western massachusetts, these storms weaken a little bit as they get to you by 10:00 p.m. but strong enough to make travel a nightmare. there are already delayed

7:16 am
14-year-old abigail kopf shot and injured in the parking lot of this restaurant, doctors say at one point her heart stopped. but she's now fighting for her life. >> actually she squeezed my hand. it was a miracle on its own. >> reporter: richard smith and his 17-year-old son tyler were killed in this car dealership parking lot. we've now turned tyler's teenage girlfriend was also there and hid in the family car calling 911. mallory lemieux and tory curtis were almost the 45-year-old driver's passengers that night until mallory's dead sent this text, multiple shootings with people dead. get home please. he also warned them police were looking for a suspect in a chevy. when the college student called an uber to go home her assigned driver was in a chevy. panicking, she canceled three times hoping for another vehicle. but they kept getting the same driver. jason, the last cancellation just four minutes before police arrested him. >> definitely just makes us feel

7:33 am
to talk about the emotional distress that she suffered. the trial is expected to last nearly two week, robin. >> all right, ryan, thank you. we bring in abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams. we know the stalker already convicted in criminal court. how strong is this civil suit? >> it's a very strong civil suit against him but he doesn't have money so the question is going to be, how strong a case is it against the franchise owner, against the management company, et cetera. that's where you're talking about the potential for deep pockets and the potential of a payout. this is really a case where we're going to talk about how much and who pays it more than was there any wrongdoing. >> when we say how much, she's asking for 7$75 million. >> $75 million. she had been asking for 10 million and increased it to 675 million. keep in mind for context here on average most wrongful death cases in civil court pay out $3 million to $5 million so when you're asking for $75 million in a case like this, it's an enormous number.
7:34 am
than she's going to get but, again, the question is going to be who has to pay it and do they have to all pay it together even though there's no question that he, the stalker is the person who is primarily responsible. >> which the hotel said this is terrible what happened. put it all on him. what is their defense. >> the question is was it negligent. did they do something. the defense says, look, he fooled us. he was an insurance executive. he knew how to play the game and ask the right room. her position is going to be, no, no, no, they should never have allowed had him to be in that room next to me and they should have found that peephole a lot earlier. >> as ryan said a couple more weeks and -- >> absolutely. >> thank you, dan. we move on to that florida woman behind bars for hiring a hit man to kill her husband. dalia dippolito is serving 20 years for the crime but now she's back this court taking the stand for the first time in a new bid for freedom. abc's linsey davis is tracking the case. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, george. dippolito claims she was not trying to kill her husband.
7:35 am
on tape discussing it because she was trying to get an acting job. her lawyer claims she was set up and the police department only cared about being on the reality tv show "cops." dalia dippolito is taking a stand for the first time facing a retriri for hiring a hit man to kill her husband of six months. >> i was afraid. >> reporter: her 2011 guilty verdict was overturned due to a tainted jury pool. >> he threatened me. he threatened to hurt me. he threatened to hurt my family. >> you know, he gets two in the head. >> i'm positive like 5,000 percent sure. >> reporter: dalia says she was acting during had video from a script that dalia, her then husband michael dippolito and former lover mohamed shihadeh had written for an acting project they planned to post 0 on social media. >> this is something to be something you guys are going to put on line -- >> on social media, right, so we can try to get an acting job from it. >> so this is acting? >> yes.
7:36 am
that was no act and alleged she paid an under undercover cop posing as a hit man $3,000 to kill her husband. >> is your husband michael? >> reporter: the real act investigators say was dippolito's reaction to these south florida police officers telling her this lie. >> i'm sorry to tell you, ma'am, he's been killed. >> no. >> reporter: but her lawyer claims the police were setting her up for an appearance on the reality show "cops." >> whether you like dalia dippolito or not, she's entitled to the same constitutional rights as you and i and this case is about a police department that tossed her under the bus for purposes of getting fame on a "cops" tv show. >> reporter: the boynton police say we are confident we have given the state attorney's office sufficient evidence to meet the state's burden and playing off the line dippolito said in that undercover video her ex-husbanan told police that he is 5,000% sure she was trying to kill him but she's sticking to her story. >> she is.
7:37 am

you go, girl. >> reporter: set to bring down the house, this time around in the netflix sequel, "fuller house." >> we all still look good. so many great memories. my family and i used to watch this all the time. there is still so much laughter ahead and lara and sam, they're with the stars right now. >> so excited. we have goose bumps sitting in this set with three of the stars, candace, jodie, andrea for our exclusive reunion. guy, welcome back. >> thank you. >> how does it feel to be back together on camera. >> so awesome. >> we're loving it. >> asked you before. did we get this right? is this very similar to home? >> it is. very similar color scheme. the couch is a little bit bigger. >> too big. >> the couch is too big because the "fuller house" couch which is the original "full house" couch, it's been in storage for 20 years, it's actually a love seat. so how you fit four adults on that thing i have no idea.
8:32 am
then we realized we've grown. >> yes. >> smaller in those day. >> we dug this up. we found video, john stamos posted. do we have it? can we roll this video john posted. look at that. total throwback of the twins when they were very, very little. mary-kate and ashley. so what was it like for you guys? we love john stamos. he's always so fun when he comes. what is it like to work with uncle jesse? >> he's great. he's uncle j. to us. >> yeah. >> and he's -- you know, he's the executive producer on the show. >> oh, is that weird to see him boss man? bossman. >> no. >> he's like family so i don't think we'd have that -- >> he loves to eat the craft service. >> who doesn't. >> i got to ask you this, we were talking about this as we were getting out of the car. forsome reason we were in a car this morning. >> to look cool. >> 18 million people have just
8:33 am
this has got to be a sure sign that this show is already a hit, so how does that feel? >> oh, goodness, i'm like don't -- >> the couch, that was -- 18 million people watched a couch. so excited about it like i mean i don't think that any of us have ever seen anything like this for any television show let alone something that we're involved in and it's been such a huge part of our life. it's an incredible compliment and testament to the loyalty of "full house" fans. >> and what george said is so true also for my kids, what do you think about this show that we loved it growing up, now our kids have found it in reruns? i mean, is it your chemistry? is the premise? >> it's a combination. the chemistry is real, obviously, if you can't tell how close we are and how much we love each other, i mean it's all true and real and i think the show is classic and timeless in the sense that it's about family and it's about love and those
8:34 am
every generation. >> yeah, well said. so, should we binge-watch or should we watch it like a normal -- because now you guys have taken a classic and modernized it for the new audience. can you stream the whole season. >> well, you know, i think there's some fun stuff we were able to go like with carlying through some story lines that didn't have to be neatly tied up within 28 minutes like the old show so you can kind of watch a few episodes at a time but parents are also talking about that they're going to dole it out. you finish your homework and do your chores you can watch an episode of "fuller house"." >> can we mention this guy. you're traveling with a big furry dog. there was a big furry dog in the show. the dog is plow everywhere. same dog, different dog, i just got to know. >> well, could it not be the same dog. time has passed. >> he's aged even better than john tame moss. >> all right. i don't mean to bring everybody down. let's go to the clip.
8:35 am

d.j. is the oldest daughter so always responsible and nurturing and she's kind of the head of this family and she's a veterinarian and i think that was a cool job for her. so, yeah. >> kimmy gibbler is just as zany as she was back in the '90s. she he's matured a little and i think her wardrobe has improved. >> i love the skirt -- i don't know if it's a dress but love it. you look great today. >> yeah, stephanie is still kind of fun and wild and edgy hasn't lost her really sharp wit and, you know, comedic timing so she's a lot of fun to play all these years later. >> so what's great about that older fans will recognize all of you and think this is appropriate when they see the show. all right, so katrina on twitter asks what is your favorite thing about actually being back on the set? >> it's just showing up to work. >> yeah. >> the three of us, andrea had us all made -- had coffee cups made for us that had our character names on them so we

8:45 am
chance to speak with them about their foundation's annual letter and the issues they care deeply about. a delight to have you both with us. thank you. [ applause ] and there's no applause sign. that came from the heart. so appreciate the letter that you all put out every year and, bill, you decided to do something different this year to direct it to teens like we have here in the studio with us right now. what was the purpose behind that. >> well, the initial inspiration came from high school newspaper where they interviewed us and asked us what superpower would we like to have? and we were kind of surprised when melinda talked about time and i talked about energy, that those really do relate to the inequity that we've got to solve in the world, and so it's the young generation that's got the innovation and perspective that
8:46 am
will take a generation or more to fully achieve? that's the purpose of having these teens here the next generation, more energy. your superpower, more time as it applies to women around the world. >> if you poll young teens today, they think that women are going to be different in the home 15 years from now, different than their grandmother's generation but it's actually not true especially when you look at this unpaid work that women do at home. >> and that disparity in time impacts all of us, doesn't it? >> it absolutely does. and when i talk about unpaid work, it's some of the caring things we want to do at home like care for our children and the elderly but things like chores and if you are spending your time particularly in the developing world carrying water, chopping wood or even in the u.s. doing laundry or chores it means you don't reach your potential. >> we want to get some of the solutions you are suggesting but first, bill, more energy. tells why that is your superpower you want. >> well, energy is probably more
8:47 am
life started really improving a few hundred years ago when we got energy and so the idea that you can just flip that light switch, that's pretty magical. we all take that for granted and yet there's several billion people who don't have it. >> for you both let's lay out some ideas and solutions especially as the next generation is here in front and happening on every single word that you're saying, so when it comes to more time, what are some of the things you're proposing. >> well, first of all recognize the amount of time women are paying on unpaid work then reduce it and redistribute it inside of the household. if we do those three things both at a policy level and directly in our homes, it fundamentally trance fors society because you open up women's potential. >> so where is gabe? okay, gabe, what's your question. >> i have a question for bill. so, we all know about wind and solar technologies. but i'm wondering, what other technologies are you excited about that are less well known.
8:48 am
wind and solar, if we could bring the price down even more dramatically and be able to store that energy because it's intermittent that's one path to a solution, another path is instead of taking the sun and making electricity which is hard to store, to directly make gasoline, so it may come in a form that we don't recognize as now. >> as i'm a citizen of a developing country, pakistan, i've seen girls go through a lot of obstacles this their careers so i wanted to ask how do you suggest them to overcome this problem of energy and how do you think that would help them succeed? >> first, recognizing this is a problem and using your voice and political participation. i would say in terms of reducing this inequity, go into stem fields whether it's science, math, technology. innovations that help women spend less time cooking or less
8:49 am
machine that works more efficiently and lastly, i would say redistribute the workload in your own home. you need to talk with your partner even before you're married about whose roles and responsibilities, what are the hidden expectations of this work. >> you saw her husband was looking at her as she was responding, nodding. >> we've had that conversation. >> thank you very much for your question. nolan, you'll have the final question. >> so how can the simple act of turning off the faucet or even the lights greatly affect how we save our energy on a larger scale? >> well, i think it's important we're aware that americans use twice as much energy per person than even the other well-to-do countries and so if you get that mind-set of how do we conserve it you help with the local water shortage. you save money, so awareness is where it all begins and conservation is a piece of what we need to do. >> oh, well, bill and melinda gates, thank you very much.
8:50 am
the students were just, i mean, leaning in. >> great conversation. >> had a very good conversation like that and it's just, boy, what would your superpower be? just think about it. you can read bill and melinda

8:56 am
there are now more than 3700 outages in macon county. power outages have increased in haywood, buncombe and graham counties. let's check with jaclyn for the latest on the roads. >> jaclyn: a downed tree on i-40 eastbound at exhibit 27. we were seeing a lot of congestion in that area earlier but they are clearing that. the highway patrol is working that and that is being cleared. try to avoid that area for the time being. also in haywood county there are multiple downed trees, debris and power lines that are down mainly in the caan and clyde area. be extra careful on the roadways. also this is a problem in south asheville in the biltmore village area around the 300 block of brooklyn road is blocked because of a downed tree. avoid that spot if you can. the big message, be careful, look out for downed trees and debris in the roadway this morning.
8:57 am
news, oconee county that tornado warning has expired about 15 minutes ago but continuing to see heavy showers now north of moody cove and moving south right now into transylvania county. so please use caution in these zones. downpours expected when you start to see the yellow and orange including south of hot springs around whorley west of marshall. the next couple of hours continuing to see on and off showers in some of these pretty intense at times. we have this chance of severe storms throughout the day. downed trees, power lines with the gusty wind, hail and also a chance as we learned of an isolated tornado. that cannot be ruled out
