this morning on "world news now," conservatives setting the course. the trump administration taking a break from all those tough questions in d.c., facing a friendlier crowd at the annual cpac gathering in the suburbs, we're going to take you to the conference to see what he everyone's really trying to get their hands on ahead of the president's big speech. >> outrage in the streets overnight as the trump administration's rollback of transgender for students is met with anger and uncertainty. protests are demanding action including caitlyn jenner calling the situation a disaster. >> new this half hour, the explosive incident that's left a community outraged. >> the new video that shows what led to an off-duty police officer firing his weapon after an altercation with a group of teens. we hear from the young man involved. as we count down to the academy awards, the bets are on for this year's razzie awards. and the one razzie trophy still unclaimed after 26 years.
we're going to tell you who the owner that have trophy is. i think you know him. that's later in "the skinny." it is friday, february 24th. from abc news, this is "world news now." >> all right. >> it's so award because we're talking oscars and then you see "batman versus superman" and for a second you thought how is that still in the same conversation? >> it's not. >> it ain't. >> we'll explain that a little bit later on in the show. we begin within fireworks at the premier conservative conference cpac going on right now outside of washington. >> the headline speaker is president trump. he skipped it last year and was actually mocked for it. he's going to get a hero's welcome after a rare appearance by his top aide steve bannon. just hours ago, the vice president there promising the nightmare that is obamacare is almost over. abc's arlette saenz is there. >> reporter: just outside the
nation's capital, cpac is part conference, part spirit show. the annual event drawing in thousands of young conservatives and party activists ready to flaunt their republican credentials. >> for those looking for conservative swag, this may be your spot. you have elephant print dresses and skirts and even a make america great again book embo embossed in 22 karat gold. >> the main focus on the stage is the donald trump takeover. >> president trump won a historic victory all across the united states of america. >> reporter: it's quite a reversal from a year ago when candidate trump skipped cpac. now it's all about president trump. >> this will be tpac this year. >> reporter: five weeks after he took office, his top lieutenants fanned out to sell their boss's vision. >> the my friends, this is our time. this is the chance we've worked so hard for so long to see. this is the time to prove again
that our answers are the right answers for america. >> reporter: trump's chief strategist steve bannon making a rare appearance promising the president is ready to battle with the media and hiscrit sicks. >> if you think they're going to give your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. every day, every day it is going to be a fight and that is what i'm proudest about donald trump. all the opportunities he had to waiver off this all the people that came to him and said you've got to the moderate. every day in the oval office he tells reince and i, i promised this when i ran and i'm going to deliver on this. >> reporter: this is the warmup act for the big speech later on today when president trump takes the staining at cpac. he'll be the first sitting president to address the group since george w. bush in 2008. >> no doubt he will get a hero's welcome indeed. the president making it clear he wants the u.s. to be the world's dominant nuclear power. in a new interview, the president said he would like to
see a world without nuclear arms but he said if there are going to be nukes, then the u.s. is going to be at the top of the pack. we should point out russia currently has more nuclear warheads than the u.s. but both countries have more than enough to destroy the world. the president raised eyebrows when he referred to the deportation of undocumented immigrants as a military operation. press secretary sean spicer later explains that the president was using that phrase to mean, precision. homeland security chief john kelley traveling in mexico took a tougher stance stating clearly there will be no mass deportations and no use of military force during immigration operations. >> kelly made those comments while in mexico city with secretary of state rex tillerson by his side. they were meeting with the mexican president and his cabinet trying to alleviate their concerns over new u.s. immigration policies, a task made tougher after the president's remarks. new protests against
president trump's rollback of transgender protections in public schools. demonstrators outside new york's landmark stone wall inn chanted and held signs in support of transgender youth. the inn is considered the birthplace of the gay kivl rights movement. the roll back gives power back to states and school districts to decide the issue. >> i think it's not a question of whether it's a civil right, whether it's appropriately addressed. as i noted it's appropriately addressed at the state level. and long time republican and transgender activist caitlyn jenner is speaking out about the policy reversal asking president trump to give her a call. jenner tweeting to the president, "from one republican to another, this is a disaster." the former olympian had a message of support for transgender youth. >> new questions about ivanka trump's role at the white house. she had a seat at the table with manufacturing ceos at the white house. sources say she recently hosted
republican members of congress to discuss a child care tax proposal and paid maternity leave. it was a big issue that she discussed on the campaign trail. such a policy meeting is considered unusual for the child of a president with no formal role in the administration. and we do have breaking news right now about a new police shooting, this one not far from capitol hill. detail taz still sketchy. but two d.c. police officers were shot and are now hospitalized. we're told their wounds are not life-threatening but a male suspect was shot and killed. the officers were responding to a report of shots fired. there were three other shooting incidents earlier in another part of the nation's capital. >> and we're also keeping an eye on the severe storm system in the midwest right now. take a look at the radar. that storm is intense from idaho to michigan. the snow and wind will pick up and develop into a blizzard later today. this is a storm system that wreaked havoc in northern california and has already claimed lives as it moves east. dangerous conditions on i-80 near salt lake city.

become involved and eventually the officer reaches for his gun. >> and i thought i was going to die right there. i thought he was going to shoot me. because he was like mad. >> anaheim officials are promising an impartial investigation. the officer remains on administrative leave. parents suing the lapd and anaheim police. but police say nobody was hurt. >> all right. let's talk about women's basketball now. we're going to switch gears right now. this was not necessarily one of the best moves at a women's basketball game. >> this happened last night in the rutgers/northwestern game. so body, one of those players, ashley deary with the ball steps down to untie or rather tie her untied sneaker. she stops dribbling the ball and leaves it in the middle of the court. >> it is not the best idea as rutgers players took advantage, stealing the ball. that's what you do scoring a basket. somehow northwestern recovered from the gaffe and held off rutgers for -- well, the game wasn't even close, it was 60-38
the final score there. >> was that supposed to be some type of diversion tactic? >> maybe she realized we've got the game so wrapped up, it didn't matter. i'm just going to stop, do whatever i want. >> you know we all make mistakes. that was one. >> she actually had five points in last night's game. >> that's good. >> not bad. >> coming up in "the skinny," alex trebek shows how cool he really is. >> plus the new video that shows what it's like to be chased by a tiger. >> first the terrifying moments that played out on an airport runway. what caused a jet to clam slam into the pavement and collapse its own landing gear. you're watching "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" weather, brought to you by move free ultra. free ultra. don't let joint discomfort keep you down. come play with us! i'm coming. upgrade to move free ultra's triple action joint support for improved mobility, and flexibility.
