>> reporter: good morning, amy. this came as a huge surprise to almost everyone in washington. the president planning to secretly meet with the taliban right here on u.s. soil but just as soon as he announced these talks he called them off. president trump in the same tweet announced and then abruptly canceled the secret taliban summit at camp david. he wrote, unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major taliban leaders and separately the president of afghanistan were going to secretly meet with me at camp david on sunday. the president blaming a kabul suicide bombing three days earlier that left a dozen people dead, including sergeant first class elis angel ortiz, the 16th american killed in combat there this year. president trump writing, i immediately called off the meeting. that abrupt cancellation came that wld have brought home more than 5,000 u.s. troops serving in afghanistan.
now their future uncertain. telling george the taliban had not been reached. >> the taliban overreached. it killed an american in an effort to gain leverage at the negotiating table. and president trump said enough. >> reporter: this, even though in the past, the administration argued that the deaths of u.s. service members were reasons to keep the talks going. that the surprise summit would have taken place at camp david just days before the september 11th anniversary, left lawmakers in both parties stunned. >> it's just another example of the president treating foreign policy like it's some kind of game show. this isn't a game show. these are terrorists. >> reporter: republican congresswoman liz cheney tweeting, camp david is where america's leaders met to plan our response after 9/11. no member of the taliban should ever set foot there. and now the taliban is responding say, quote, this will harm america more than anyone else. they say this will lead to more american deaths.
14,000 u.s. troops remain in afghanistan right now. president trump has long advocated to get america out of its longest running war. the question now, george, what happens to these troops. more than 5,000 of them were >> some indication that the president wants to bring them home anyway. okay, cecilia, thanks very much. we're going to go to the race for the white house as democratic candidates gear up for abc's debate thursday night, our new poll with "the washington post" shows a top tier pulling away. joe biden still on top with 27%. bernie sanders at 19%. and elizabeth warren with 17%. our senior national correspondent terry moran joins us from washington with more on the poll's findings. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. that poll does show what has now become a familiar look for this democratic field. just four days out of that debate in houston on abc, and the top tier and then the second tier, but these are early days. more than half the people we
polled say they are considering, willing to consider, another candidate but look at joe biden's big advantage. we already know it. electability. take a look at this number. 42% of democrats far more than they say support him say that he is more likely to defeat donald trump. that, of course, is the number one issue for democrats, but his rival sense vulnerability in the 76-year-old gaffe-prone front-runner. and the second tier candidate they think it's a race that a dark horse could jump out. let's take a look at that second tier. kamala harris, mayor pete buttigieg and former congressman beto o'rourke and look at that, businessman andrew yang. he's rising, too, up to 3% now. this is a race where anything i guess could happen. >> and as you point out, more than half the voters say they could still change their minds. meantime, congress coming back to work this week, and gun control at the top of at least the democrats' agenda. they are pushing president trump to act on background checks and other measures and our new poll shows strong support for those measures. >> reporter: that's right. this is the extraordinary, yet
once again familiar story. if you have got hopes for gun control, they lie in though, american public opinion. take a look. our poll shows that an overwhelming number of americans, 89%, believe there should be background checks for all gun purchases including at private sales and gun shows. that's incredible. you can't get 90% of americans to agree that it's monday. on the assault weapons ban, still very strong support there, 56%. it's tricky to define that, but they're waiting for leadership on all that, george. >> in the meantime, terry, the president has a new challenger in the republican primaries and he's taking notice. >> reporter: he is indeed. former south carolina governor and congressman mark sanford whose career seemed to flame out inn a scandal with an argentine mistress, he's announced his running. the president calling them the three stooges, george. >> terry moran, thanks very much. as we said, abc's debate
coming up thursday night in houston. ten candidates on the stage. first time a single night for one debate. our koj begins at 8:00 eastern. >> you'll be heading there soon. >> heading down tomorrow. now to the desperate situation in the bahamas, the death toll from hurricane dorian is rising. at least 45 people killed, hundreds still missing. this, as supplies slowly arrive for the survivors of the most powerful hurricane to ever hit the island. marcus moore is back in marsh harbour with the very latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: robin, good morning. what we see here is absolutely heartbreaking. homes are gone. brick and concrete buildings have been demolished. and then we see this, so many boats left resting on the shore. this one carrying a couple of cars. it is also damaged. and from our drone camera, you get a sense of the scale of this catastrophe. the damage stretches for miles along this island that took a direct hit. it's almost as if every single building here sustained some damage. this morning, we know that dozens were found dead amidst
the rubble, and the fear is that there will almost certainly be more. this morning, as the death toll in the bahamas continues to rise from hurricane dorian, marsh harbour is left battered and beaten. many from this proud community looking for any way to get out. over the weekend, the royal bahamas defense force load up boats sending more than 3,000 people to nassau for food, water and shelter. they're using the same shipping port to bring in much needed aid. >> this is what we do. we serve. we here in the military, this is what we do, we bring relief for people that are hurting. we bring relief to people that need us. >> reporter: but some evacuees from the bahamas being sent to the united states were forced off of a rescue ferry. the fox affiliate in miami obtaining this video. >> passengers they that don't have visas, please proceed to disembark. >> reporter: u.s. customs and
border protection saying it was, a, quote, business decision by the ferry operator. that they're continuing to proc. and the destruction is all around here in marsh harbor. you can see it here. trees have been snapped. homes and businesses torn apart. boats and cars tossed around either by dorian's extreme winds or that massive storm surge that left this island community in ruins. in nearby island communities, people revisiting their now destroyed homes. and this is your house? >> yep. >> reporter: you rode out the storm here? >> we left in the eye thankfully, and when we left in the eye it was still very much intact. >> reporter: more than 40 declared dead and thousands missing. those left picking up the pieces looking to restore normalcy as soon as they can. when you look around, do you think you'll be able to get it back? >> yeah, but it's going to take some time. it's going to take some time. >> reporter: and the health minister here in the bahamas told us that they are working to account for every single person. but that it is possible that some victims were washed out to sea and they may never be found. >> oh, so heartbreaking.
now, to an airplane emergency overnight. passengers forced to evacuate a flight in orlando, florida, after pilots detected a smoke condition on board. abc's david kerley has all of the latest on that situation. david, morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. everyone's okay, but those passengers on a flight grand cayman had expected to land in jfk, instead the emergency landing in orlando, and evacuation of all aboard the 737 using the slides to get out quickly. the pilots got a warning of smoke in the cargo hold. no evidence of smoke or fire was found on the ground. the small airline flies nine aircraft including two grounded maxes, while it says it's mindful of the distress it caused and apologized, they said it was necessary, amy. >> david, there's another big airline headline. nearly all british airways flights have been canceled or are being canceled? >> reporter: that's right. it's a pilot strike. that means all flights for british airways may be cancelled
today and tomorrow because of the strike. thousands of passengers have had to rearrange, some blaming the airline for not communicating enough. so far, 250 flights have been canceled, amy. >> all right, that is tough. david kerley, thanks so much. george. >> okay, amy, thanks. we're turning now to a race car driver lucky to be alive after a crash sent him in the air there you see it right there. he was able to walk away. injured, but life, and will reeve is here with more on how he survived. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, george. the video is shocking. a young formula 3 driver hitting the curve, flying in the air into a barrier at full speed. he lived to tell the tale. this terrifying crash sending formula 3 driver alex peroni twisting and tumbling through the air. >> that is a horrific sight. >> reporter: the australian rookie hitting a speed bump-style curve meant to serve a safety device, instead, launching his car into the fence. miraculously, peroni was able to
walk away. >> alex peroni is out of the car. dree after an extremely violent accident. >> reporter: the 19-year-old reassuring his fans on instagram, despite serious injuries he will be behind the wheel soon writing, that was a big one currently recovering in the hospital with a broken vertebrae. not sure of the recovery time, but hope to be back in the car as soon as possible. alex peroni's team released a statement thanking people for his support, and saying his life is likely saved to his protective halo, helmet and and other safety features in the car. >> what a story. >> unbelievable. >> thank you, will. now to that thrilling u.s. open final. rafael nadal winning the title in a marathon match last night lasting almost five hours. it's his 19th career grand slam. one short of the all-time record held by roger federer. then, on saturday, 19-year-old
tennis phenom bianca andreescu beating serena williams in straight sets to win the women's title. i see her family over there in the corner. they're here live in the studio. we'll talk to them in just a moment, but you have all the details first. >> yeah, and i had to change my intro because i just talked to her, and i had to tell her i wasn't rooting for her. look, everyone is rooting for serena to get that 24th, right, but how can you root against this 19-year-old? it was an exhausting match to watch because it was minutes short of being the longest one in u.s. open history. >> nadal, can he do the same here? >> reporter: a grueling five-set, 4 hour 50 minute drama-filled classic in front of a packed arthur ashe stadium. >> he will never forget this one! >> reporter: that ended with an exhausted and tearful 33-year-old rafael nadal.
the u.s. open men's champion. for the first two hours, nadal was having his way with daniil medvedev. the fifth seed in the tournament and at age 23, he was the youngest finalist in nine years, but just as nadal appeared to be marching in victory in three straight sets, medvedev came alive, switched his playing style -- >> we saw that last week. nadal, they appreciate the fight. >> reporter: and turned the match into a nail-biter and a marathon and making nadal fight for his now 19th major title. >> it has been one of the most emotional nights in my tennis career. >> reporter: emotions high in the women's final as serena williams took on bianca andreescu. williams was headed for history, but even with the entire stadium behind her and the duchess of sussex cheering her on, williams struggled against the 19-year-old canadian. but even an incredible comeback in the second set wasn't enough
to overcome one of the tour's toughest up-and-comers who was playing in her first grand slam final. >> it was an incredible tennis out there. i wish i could have played better, if anyone can win this tournament, outside of venus, i'm happy. i'm happy, it's bianca. >> it's bianca. and bianca, apologies, i'll never root against you again, okay? ever, ever. >> she's got that trophy. and you earned it. >> thank you, guys. >> looking forward to talk to you in just a little bit. also, federal prosecutors are fighting to put felicity huffman behind bars. we have her desperate plea, very personal letter to the judge. now let's go to ginger in north carolina. >> and i can't wait to tell you why i'm here but first the select cities brought to you by amazon.

and there's a new vaping warning this morning. the health commissioner of new york is urging everyone to stop using e-cigarettes until investigators can figure out why hundreds of people have developed lung illnesses after vaping. dr. ashton is here with that. very special monday morning on "gma." that's ginger. she's got some company there on the road, somewhere in this great country. ready to surprise an incredible mom and make her monday. she has no idea we're on the way. it's also a very special monday in my home, my daughter elliott's 17th birthday. happy birthday. >> oh, happy birthday! >> 17. >> you have a 17-year-old? >> tell me about it, yes. >> great. we are going to move on now to the latest on the college admissions scandal and felicity huffman. she's laying out her explanation and remorse over what she did in a letter to the judge who will decide her sentence this week. eva pilgrim here with the story. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. judgment day is fast approaching for felicity huffman.
in that letter, huffman asking the judge for community service, no jail time. but prosecutors saying, not so fast, urging at least some time behind bars. actress felicity huffman baring all. >> excuse us, folks. >> reporter: in a deeply revealing letter to a judge, huffman taking complete responsibility for her role in the cheating scandal, but claiming her decision to pay $15,000 to boost her daughter's s.a.t. score was an act of desperation due in part of her fear of being a bad mom. the 56-year-old writing, in my desperation to be a good mother, i talked myself into believing all i was doing is giving my daughter a fair shot. i see the irony in that now. explaining that her eldest daughter sophia grace macy struggled with learning disabilities since she was 4 years old saying, my own fears and lack of confidence combined with a daughter who has learning disabilities often made me insecure.
worried sophia's low s.a.t. math scores would hurt her chances of being admitted into acting school. she was recommended rick singer the so-called mastermind of operation "varsity blues." >> getting into the right college will set the trajectory of your son or daughter's life. don't leave it to chance. >> reporter: in her letter, the actress claims that after nearly a year of working with mr. singer and his tutors, he told me it was not enough. adding that he had the solution and sophia would never know. soon the entire world would know. singer eventually becoming a government witness, huffman and dozens of other parents, coaches and college officials caught up in a national scandal. on march 12th, six armed federal agents arrested and handcuffed the actress in front of her children. after her arrest, huffman said my daughter looked at me with tears streaming down her face. why didn't you believe in me? why didn't you think i could do it on my own? i could only say i am sorry.
her husband actor william macy also writing a letter to the judge describing how this has affected their children. saying, felicity's relationship with her daughters exploded on march 12th. the last line of his letter saying simply, every good thing in my life is because of felicity huffman. macy's letter, 1 of 27 written to the judge by huffman's closest allies, including her siblings and former colleagues like former "desperate housewives" co-star eva longoria who wrote, she always leads with her heart, and has always puts others first. >> i guess we should put this behind us and get back to normal. >> sounds like a plan. >> reporter: huffman is asking to avoid jail time and serve 250 hours of community service for conspiracy to commit mail fraud. but federal prosecutors say the actress should spend at least a month behind bars. taking a swipe at her status as a hollywood star saying, huffman's conduct was deliberate and manifestly criminal. neither probation nor home
confinement in a large home in the hollywood hills with an infinity pool would constitute meaningful punishment or deter others from committing similar crimes. now, all eyes are on friday when a judge will make that decision. she is the first of the parents to be sentenced. and many agree, this decision will set the tone for the others to come. >> many people are watching. we'll see what happens. eva, thank you very much. coming up, first here on "gma" this morning, the newly crowned u.s. open champ, bianca andreescu is here live talking about that win over serena, and what's next for the 19-year-old tennis phenom. come on back. what's next for the 19-year-old tennis phenom. come on back. ear-old tennis phenom. come on back. this is the age of expression. everyone has something to say. but in a world full of talking, shouldn't somebody be listening? so. let's talk. we are edward jones. with one financial advisor per office,

all they're going to do is go down the street and go to their friends' house and do it when you are not monitoring the child. parental controls are on this thing. >> show a dad how to do it. >> all right. dad, parentaltools.org. hear that, folks? parentaltools.org. that's where you need to go, and this site is going to pop up. it will give you some options here, but to the right here has one that says, restrict communication. click on that, and your kid probably has one of these devices. click on whichever one you have. right there, step-by-step instructions on how to get parental control. depending on your devices go right there. parentaltools.org, restrict communication. now we have been talking a lot about "fortnite." you see this there, parental controls. filter mature language. you can turn it on so it will actually take the language away. so the kid can't hear or see language in the text and then voice chat. you have that option. you can turn that sucker right off. >> you can still play with people, but you just can't communicate with them.
