7:00 am
good morning, america. president-elect trump lashes out, launching a twitter tirade over those calls for an election recount, making the claim with zero evidence that millions of americans voted illegally. and that he should have won the popular the recount set to get under way in wisconsin. hillary clinton's campaign says they're joining in. end of an era. celebrations and mourning. over the death of dictator fidel castro. now new questions about the united states' future with cuba and trump's promise to "roll back relations." "world news tonight" anchor david muir is live in havana. lucky to be alive. the kidnapped mom found bound on the side of the road weeks after she was reportedly abducted on a jog. an eyewitness who discovered that mother of two now speaking out. >> i figured if she was willing
7:01 am
>> as the massive manhunt ramps up for two women accused of being to linked to the abduction. ? and get ready. it's cybermonday. and we have secrets to huge savings, after a record black friday frenzy. >> okay, you got the red. >> the online tricks to use right now. and the deals you'll find only on "gma." we hope you had a great holiday weekend. thanksgiving in the rearview mirror now. how many days until christmas? >> 26. >> 26 days until christmas. the shopping has already begun. >> unfortunately some shoppers got too intense. take a look at what happened. this is at a nike store in seattle. >> what did they do? >> they were searching for bargains, i guess. and didn't care about the mess
7:02 am
special deals from tory johnson coming up that you can purchase from the comfort of your computer. that is coming, up, but we start with a new election fi firestorm. the green party has called for a recount in the key swing state of wisconsin. recounts expected in michigan and pennsylvania, as well. hillary clinton's campaign joining the efforts, though they expect no change in the final results. >> donald trump is railing against that effort, unleashing a twitter storm on sunday alleging that voters voted illegally without any evidence. david wright is in madison, wisconsin, where officials are set to meet today. good morning to you, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. donald trump won this state by less than 1%. fewer than 22,000 votes. so it's possible, but unlikely that the last ditch effort here will change the results. already, trump is complaining loudly. donald trump always railed against what he called the rigged system. >> a big part of the rigged
7:03 am
you know, we're in a rigged system, folks. >> reporter: now he is blasting the effort to recount the vote in the rust belt as a green party scam. the people have spoken, and the election is over, he said in his first comments about the recount. we must accept this result and then look at the future. the recall effort is being joined by the clinton campaign. to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. clinton's lawyer says the ca supporters to quote, do something, anything, to investigate claims that the election results were hacked. but concedes that the clinton campaign's own investigators have not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology. >> why in the world can't the democrats, quote, accept the election results? >> reporter: trump's own twitter posts got more and more heated this weekend. first, he claims to have won the
7:04 am
millions of people who voted illegally, and then he claimed serious voter fraud in virginia, new hampshire and california. so why isn't the media reporting on this? serious bias, big in both cases, trump offered no proof to back up his claim. abc found no evidence of widespread fraud. the official tally has trump trailing clinton in the popular vote by more than 2 million. california's secretary of state called hisll fraud there absurd, insisting his reckless tweets are inappropriate and unbecoming of president-elect. again, it is highly unlikely that this recount effort is going to swing the results, but it is conceivably possible if you add in michigan and pennsylvania. that's why the trump campaign, donald trump himself is calling clinton a hypocrite.
7:05 am
let's start with the claim, from donald trump, baseless claim, that millions voted illegally, still extraordinary that he is complaining after he won the election about voter fraud. >> the irony is he says you can trust 10,000 votes spread across three states. but you can't trust 2 million votes spread across 50 states. i think there are three problems with this. one, he made this up. intentionally or in you can't do that as president-elect. the most important aspect of a president is credibility and trump. every time donald trump does something like this, he undermines it. and three, more importantly, the country is searching for a common set of facts and the truth. and when donald trump does this, it continues to divide the country. >> some critics see a strategy, a diversion from other stories on the transition, particularly conflicts of interest over his business holdings in so many countries, and that evidence
7:06 am
transit transi transition. >> i think that's the anchor that could ultimately hurt donald trump in this. it's not the appointments or policies. it is what are all these conflicts of interest and the level they rise and countries across the world where he's got particular business interests. i think that is the thing that will follow him through this entire presidency. >> finally, we're also seeing a pretty extraordinary public fight over his pick for secretary of state. we know he's talked to mitt romney. we saw his campaign transition. his camp conway, now campaign transition adviser, raising real questions about romney saying there would be backlash among his conservative base. one of the questions is, would she be doing this if donald trump didn't want her to? >> well, george, you know, it's very unprecedented. either she's doing it because he wanted her to do it, which is weird to begin with. why doesn't he make an announcement he's no longer considering him? or she's not and doing it on her own.
7:07 am
ironic that donald trump shouldn't appoint mitt romney because he wasn't loyal in the primary, and kellyanne conway worked on behalf of ted cruz, attacking donald trump, and then went to work for him as a campaign manager. >> thank you, matthew dowd. trump and millions around the world are reacting to the death of fidel castro. cuba is observing a nine-day period of mourning. and here in the u.s., castro's passing is igniting strong emotions and fierce political debate here in the states. almost -- "world news tonight" anchor, david muir is in havana reporting on that. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. as you know, fidel castro defied u.s. presidents for nearly half a century. we have talked to so many cubans in the streets here. one man telling me, without castro, cuba is nothing. when i asked two young women are they looking forward to the possibility of new freedoms here, they told me they're happy with what they have.
7:08 am
walk down the streets of cuba this morning, and you can sense it. a country in mourning. the streets nearly empty. the flags at half staff. the music you typically hear in the streets here, silent. a country dealing with the loss of their long-time leader, fidel castro. he died late friday night. [ speaking spanish ] he tells us he's proud of his leader, but that fidel castro has already been gone for a long time. ? more than 200 miles away in miami, florida, the mood for many is very different. cuban exiles flooding the streets over the weekend, celebrating. waving the flag high and dancing. they say this is the end to an oppressive regime. >> he did a lot of damage. especially for us that came in the '60s. we left everything. >> reporter: and fidel castro, everything is controversial among the leaders. president obama, who recently renewed diplomatic ties to cuba,
7:09 am
saying, we offer condolences to fie fidel castro's family. saying history will judge and record the enormous impact of this figure. but he has been criticized because of fidel's human rights abuses. >> i hope we don't see barack obama and joe biden and hillary clinton and democrats lining up to lionize a murderous tyrant and thug. >> reporter: president-elect trump calling castro, quote, a mr. trump saying his administration will do all it can to ensure prosperity and liberty for the cubans. we talked to american tourists here. this group from texas. asking what the future with the u.s. should look like. what are your hopes for the cuban people now? >> i hope we can continue to have good relations with cuba. i think that's what the people have indicated to us that they want. >> reporter: they're expecting a
7:10 am
today at the plaza de la revolution. we asked the cubans here in the streets what they think about the future of cuba and the u.s. after the thaw in relations from the last couple of years. they say much of that now depends on what they hear from president-elect trump. george. >> it is the in his hands now, david. let's get more from jon karl. we know during the campaign, trump said he would reverse the executive orders, normalizing relations that president obama made. the question is how far go. what will he demand? can he get it done? >> we heard in the campaign him talking about being open to lifting the trade embargo. just wanted to get a better deal than what he said obama got. i do not think that president trump will go forward to rapidly lift all that obama did on cuba. it's more likely based on my conversations with his top aides, it's more likely he'll
7:11 am
concessions government on human rights and religious freedoms. >> they're saying they want release of political prisoners. the question is, how will raul castro and the administration respond? >> they dig in, trump needs to save face and lift some of those measures. keep in mind, everything that president obama did, the easing of the trade embargo, travel restrictions, it was all done through executive order. as president, trump could lift that all with a stroke of a pen. i see no indication that's something he wants to do unless he's goaded into it by the cuban government. >> we'll see, jon karl. thanks very much. now to the wild weather. heavy snow in the mountain states created travel problems for millions over the weekend. and now more dangerous conditions are on the way. abc's alex perez is in chicago where they just saw a lot of rain. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, amy. snow, rain, icy roads. for those who are hoping to ease into the workweek, mother nature is not cooperating.
7:12 am
coast to coast wreaking havoc as snow, ice, and rain caused treacherous driving conditions for holiday travelers. four reported tornadoes near lincoln, nebraska touching down. >> big cone. >> huge. >> reporter: the first post-thanksgiving tornadoes here in 40 years. nearly a half foot of snow fell on flagstaff, arizona. interstates shut down in nevada county after dangerous driving conditions. southern california also getting an early dose of the white stuff. for those hoping to avoid the roads, thousands of flights delayed. >> it's a bit annoying. my flights tend to get delayed. >> reporter: tsa screening an estimated 2.5 million passengers nationwide yesterday. >> i came two hours early. because i know chicago is a pretty busy airport. storms, they're moving east. they're expected to create more travel problems.
7:13 am
>> all right, alex, and yes. let's get more from rob marciano on that with more on the two storms hitting the country. >> a lot of people are traveling today. this picture from the mountains east of los angeles in through salt lake city. storm number one, storm number two. a very active pattern setting up here. we'll see delays at salt lake city, dallas, memphis. this storm has a lot of jet stream energy and juice across the south. a severe weather threat. we haven't in a couple of months. the winter weather, look at all these alerts. the west just painted with it. it will be dicey travel across parts of the dakotas and the mountains, as well. we're building a beneficial snow pack. that's good. also beneficial rains coming to the east. we'll talk about that in just a few minutes. all right, rob. thank you so much, and speaking of travel, take a look at this. two people at the minneapolis airport were treated for injuries after the catering truck they were riding in, it
7:14 am
crashed right there, boom, into a tunnel. remark remarkably, they were able to climb out of the truck and they were not seriously the tunnel had to be shout down. we're told no flights were affected. incredible they both got out alive. >> you have to wonder what happened. we move to the california manhunt for two fugitives who broke out of jail last week. police offering a $20,000 reward, warning the men are dangerous and desperate. abc's eva pilgrim here with the latest. good morning, >> reporter: good morning, george. the intense search nonstop, running around the clock. this morning, investigators are listening to every call those inmates made while in the county jail, trying to find out who they were talking to before they got out. two inmates on the run after a daring jailbreak in san jose, california. this morning, investigators saying the $20,000 reward is a game-changer. >> that's generating a lot of tips. >> reporter: new information pouring in. rogerio chavez and laron
7:15 am
firearms violations. on the run now for four days. only abc news getting a look inside the cell where it happened. >> it's pretty smooth. >> reporter: these are the bars left behind from the window chavez and campbell cut out to make their escape. this is from their late night getaway. >> this is the window they came out of. where the bars are missing. and you can see also, they cut one of the horizontal supports and pushed the window out. >> ror a makeshift rope of blankets and bed sheets. repelling themselves down to escape, the other two prisoners quickly captured. chavez and campbell got away. how they cut the bars? a mystery. that window boarded up. this dorm-style cell empty. but the night of the escape, it was full. 20 inmates packed in. >> other people had to know. we believe that they had been cutting for quite a while.
7:16 am
out, investigators say that none of those still in are talking. and the sheriff telling us she has a really hard time believing that the other 16 guys didn't hear or see a thing. but, something that doesn't surprise her. it's part of the prison culture. no one wants to be a snitch. amy. all right, eva. thanks so much. well, it is cybermonday, and the blockbuster shopping has already begun. over 154 million shoppers, yeah, they were running. they took advantage of those thanksgiving deals. and abc's rebecca jarvis has the details. cybermonday is more my speed. >> this is the perfect speed for me, too. many of the shoppers shopped online. many shopped from the palm of their hand. today, expect deep discounts with free shipping on appliances, clothes, and electronics. after a record-breaking black friday weekend, shoppers already gearing up for a massive cybermonday. this weekend, more than 154

looked like a shirt. >> reporter: papini told authorities her chapters dropped her off, right there behind me, 150 miles from her home, on thanksgiving day. she was bound with restraints but able to flag down passing driver. >> i figured if she was willing to risk being hit by a car, she must really need help. >> she's chained with -- wit a quarter-inch heavy chain and on her wrists. >> reporter: investigators coming the restraints and papini's clothes for evidence. they're checking cameras. they're investigating papini's past, clinding a previous marriage, and searching her online activity. currently, we have to reason to disbelieve miss papini's story.
7:34 am
now sherri papini was treated at an area hospital and released. her husband, keith, was immediately by her side. the sherry intends to reinterview pap i ni this week. >> thank you, kayna. joining us is brad garrett, a former fbi special agent and veteran felony prosecutor nancy grace. good morning to you both. a i remember seeing this on my phone, i can't believe this outcome. how unusual is this type of story? >> well, of course, skeptics believe that it's a hoax. but i'm not so sure that that's true. the police are saying -- the sheriff is saying, they have no reason to disbelieve her. they say they're investigator her past. here is the rub, the fly in the ointment. it's extremely rare for women to
7:35 am
that's not just an anecdotal statement. according to the u.s. department of justice, about 75.6% of crimes are committed by men. okay. so to hear of two women committing a violent felony, kidnap, beating her, restraining her this way, and as of yet, there's no motive, that's why people are skeptical. i can tell you this. i've seen even stranger scenarios that are true. >> and brad, let me ask you this. sherri papini was found battered. chained. police are looking for those two women. what do you make of the scene that was set? >> first of all, we don't know what role these women played. could they have been involved in the kidnapping? of course. but, figuring out their position in this whole thing, did they find her? were they associated with the bad guys who kidnapped her and they dropped her off?
7:36 am
details she can remember. what was the room like? what did it smell like? was it near a barn? were people on cell phones? she's going listen for accents. all those little clues combined with social media may find these guys. >> nancy, do you think there are other avenues investigators should be pursuing? >> absolutely. what brad just said sparked my mind. a cell tower beneficial right now. in order, cell phone tower near the spot where she was taken, very near her home, where they found her ear buds and her cell phone, strands of her hair in the ear buds. a cell tower dump would give you ever cell phone that passed that was turned on at that moment. within that hour. that would be very, very helpful. they're looking at computers.
7:37 am
why would she do this? restain herself and beat herself in way that made them take her to the hospital? before i'm going to be skeptic and cynical, i'm leaning to believe her right now. and think we should be thankful she's home. >> nancy and brad, thank you. george, what's up next? it's something called thunderstorm asthma. and bigger cybermonday savings. all in two minutes. zblech bigger? wow. mini miracle. esents, a holiday hey! hey! ? this is for you. did you really? didn't have too! ? getting the gift you almost kept for yourself, now that's a holiday mini miracle. and it is easy to create your own at walgreens,

8:43 am
>> definitely. >> did you ever have someone shut the door on you like that, basically? >> i have had a variety of experiences in that way. throughout the movie, you can see. there's a lot of people who don't look up from their paper when you come into read. it's tough. >> the movie is so beautiful. i brought my daughters. i have to say, i'm not overselling this. this is the best movie i saw all year. i laughed, i cried, my heart was warmed. it mad to be such an incredible experience. you have done broadway. this is not your first time singing in front of millions. but, what was it like -- i mean, look at that. the dancing, the singing. you were a triple-threat in this movie. >> oh, thanks. >> you're welcome.
