target for terrorists. back here at home, the the race for if white house hotter than ever. with donald trump sharpening his attacks onning hk and signaling his most dramatic shift yet on immigration. jon karl is on the trail. >> reporter: good morning, george, this shift on immigration is a stunning reversal for trump on his core issue. and it comes as he's out with a brand-new harsh label for hillary clinton. speaking in mississippi overnight, donald trump gave a provocative new label to hillary clinton. for the first time, branding her a racist. >> hillary clinton is a bigot. who sees people of color -- only as votes. not as human beings worthy of a better future. >> reporter: watch the reaction from this woman as trump makes the attack. >> hillary clinton is a bigot, who sees people of color --

7:11 am
the main stream, linked to an alt-right political philosophy that embraces extremism. trump's new position on immigration sounds a heck of a lot like what jeb bush proposed in the republican primaries. back then, george, trump harshly attacked it as amnesty. now a spokes person for bush is reacting saying, it's unsurprising that donald trump is finally faced with reconciling his immigration policy with reality. it's something governor bush predicted last year. george? >> okay,jon karl. let's take that to matt dowd. the trump campaign is saying, etch though he's talked about this for the last several days, that he's going to come out with a formal position in the next week or so. if this sticks, if he does say that some of the undocumented immigrants in the country right now can have a path to legalization, that would be, as jon said, just stunning given
7:12 am
everything he said over the course of the primary campaign. >> i think it would be the most fundamental shift in his whole campaign to this point. there's two areas they have to be careful of. first is if you ask any trump voter, the only issue that lynx them together is his immigration stand. no other issue links them together. the other issue is, he's supposed to be the tells it like it is politician. the one who is willing to say whatever it takes to get it done. if he makes a major shift on this issue, it's problematic. >> isn't he shifting in a position hat more people agree with? >> absolutely. people agree that we caught to have secure borders and compassionately deal with the people in this country. absolutely. i think it's primarily aimed at white women suburban votes. it's not aimed at latinos. it's those suburban voters that he nose this election could be decided by. >> he's using the tell prompter
7:13 am
more. he still goes off and labels hillary clinton with words like bigot. that seems to be the pattern going forward. his team is going to try to discipline him a bit but give him the free rein to do what he does. >> i would hope that the bigot line was not in the te lerks rksprompter. kellyanne conway said he doesn't personally insult anybody. i would hope we have a hope solo standard in the course of this. when you say something outrageous, maybe you get a time-out for awhile to figure out what to do in the course of this. >> no time for time-outs with 70 days to go until election day. that's the reality right there, matt dowd. thank you very much. now to a set of frightening plane landings here in new york. two packed aircraft, two hours apart, slamming into birds at jfk. the incidents again raising concerns about the dangers of birds around our airports. david kerley has more from

heading to the ballroom. the big reveal coming up next. >> wonder who that could be. >> hmm. >> i know. it's a tease for you, george. now to the growing fury over a high school athlete sentenced to probation but no jail time after assaulting two classmates. >> reporter: good morning, george. an online petition calling for removal of this judge now has more than 14,000 signatures and counting. the petition calls the ruling a slap on the wrist and stays the judge is essentially letting a known sex offender on a college campus. this morning, thousands of online petitioners are calling for the remooifl of the jum who sentenced 18-year-old david becker to probation instead of prison time, after he was charged with sexually assaulting two classmates. at a plea hearing in june, judge thomas estes siding with becker's lawyer, who argued the former high school athlete had
7:32 am
already suffered due to his aks. >> there have already been significant consequences, collateral consequences to simply being charge in the first place. >> reporter: his lawyer described him as a model student who deserved to go the college. >> he was a rising star, everything was going perfect for him. suddenly, april 0, 2016, he's at a house party. there's no marnts. there's alcohol. there's marijuana. there's testosterone. he makes a bad decision. >> reporter: becker was arrested in april after two girls said they had been drinking at a house party. they went to bed with him and woke up at separate times to becker assaulting them. victim one told police becker texted her after the incident. very sorry about last night. was very much in the wrong. she replied, don't worry about.
7:33 am
it's all good. later telling investigators she didn't know what else to say. berk told police he was unaware she was asleep and he denied having contact with victim two. prosecutors had recommended two years of jail time. instead hrks e got to two years' probation. >> i think the judge's sympathies are misplaced in this case. the on feroffender's college ycr should not be the priority. >> reporter: his case is being compared to that of stanford swimmer brock turner. >> h let's talk about the with dan abrams and nancy brace. explain the process. they reached a deal. the prosecutors requested two years of jail time. the judge made a different decision. >> it's not called a plea deal. but he's effectively agreeing to
7:34 am
lesser charges. prosecutors come to the judge and say, weave reached this effectively agreement. here's what we would recommend. the judge then also gets what is a probation report. he hears from the victim's family. he flares the victim. from the defendant. makes a decision. no question this is a lenient decision. this guy should be incredibly appreciative. this is a lucky, lucky young man that he's not serving time based on this crime. with that said, i think the fact that one of the victims said that she thought he should get probation was very helpful to him. >> i disagree on so many levels the. what is the called in courthouse parlance is a blind plea. you agree to a plea agreement. you agree that someone is going the plead guilty. you go before the judge and both sides are blind as to what the judge is going to sentence.
7:35 am
the state here recommended two years bee hind bars. the defense wanted probation. the reality is, the judge went a step further. he says, well, if you don't drink and don't do drugs and don't contact the victims in two years, the whole thing will be dismissed. it's like it never happened. and dan is right about something. he said that one of the victim said, well, i don't want him to go to jail. you know what? i get it. she is feeling guilty, like it's her fault this happened to her. and i can't tell you how much that upsets me. i've dealt with so many rape victims. they're like, wow, was my skirt too short. should i have been at that party? did i have too much to dripg? is it my fault? no, it's not her fault. one of the victims went out of state. why didn't she want to go forward? that's we you have a prosecutor. you represent the victims. they're not supposed to go into court and handle their case themselves. you do what is right. you lead the prosecution. and i think this case should have gone to trial.
7:36 am
if you can't agree on a jail sentence on a rape case, then take to it a jury. >> it's very easy to say this case should have gone to trial. we should have fought this. what happens if he's found not guilty, right? then there's zero accountability. >> then you did your best. >> maybe that's not good enough. maybe in certain cases, the prosecutors are going to say, for two reasons, for two reasons. number one, maybe the prosecute rers worried they won't be able to get a conviction. the number two, maybe the victims said, you know what, we don't want to be dragged through a trial. we want you to reach an agreement. don't just say, oh, you know what, they should have taken this to trial, without knowing what's going on in the properti prosecutors' minds. >> this judge spent his whole life, practically, 30 years, as a public defender. what do you think hooets going to do when he gets on the bench? side with the defendant. all he's worried about is this
7:37 am
kid going to college. really? >> there are calls to investigate this judge. we have seen the judge in the stanford case facing calls for removal as well. >> i don't think you should tar this judge because he served as a public defender and somehow that's the problem. >> i'm not tarring him. he made a bad decision. >> i agree. it's a very lenient sentence. i think it's dangerous to start lumping cases in together. we have to evaluate them separately. i think nancy would probably agree with me. that the turner case, on the spectrum, was worse than this one. you had eyewitnesses. >> stanford. >> right. the stanford case. the possibility of a lot of prison time. i think that kay was worse. >> i don't know. is one rape worse than another? >> what do judges do every day? every single day judges have to make decisions. >> yes, they do. >> right? so there's a spectrum. >> and this was a bad one.

7:41 am
hope solo suspended from the u.s. women's national team for six months, following comments she made at the rio olympics after losing to sweden, describing them as a bunch of cowards. jeremy schaap joins us now. hope solo said this, i'm saddened by the federation's decision to terminate my contract. i could not be the player i am without being the person i am. jeremy, what do you make of the suspension. do you think it's fair? >> well, in a word, if this suspension were just for the things that hope solo said about sweden, it wouldn't be fair at all. but that's not what this is about. this is about a history of transgressions. misdeeds. run-ins with the law. she's been giving u.s. soccer headaches for 15-plus years. you have to look at the whole track record. remember, as well, this is largely symbolic. there's though world cup coming up. no olympic coming up. but, there is a fair question now to be asked whether hope
7:42 am
solo will ever again be the goalkeeper for the u.s. women's team. >> it was called excess i. we also question whether this action would have ever been taken against a male player or coach who in the heat of competition, questioned the play of the other team. >> there's a history in sport of women being held in a different level of deportment. kr cristiano ronaldo made similar statements beginning a tournament. i have interviewed hope solo. i have to say i don't think this is about gender. this is about hope solo who has been uniquely troublesome for u.s. soccer for a long time. now to a new alert on air

they looked at the travel ba booking sites. what did they find? >> come sumer reports tested 400 a airfare on nine sits. they changed minute by minute, second by second. travelocity the cheepest. ironically, cheapoair is the most expensive. if you have a browser with the history deleted, all the previous sites and cookies gone, the fare prices could be totally different than for people who don't clear their history. and to make it more confusing, sometimes more, sometimes less. >> how is that possible? >> it's ridiculous. "consumer reports" advice is check aggregator prices. and the airline. more hassle for us consumers. >> wow. it was like, ah!
