the fireworks started early. >> mr. trump -- >> i cannot say i have to respect the person that if it's not me. >> he's already hedging his bet because he's used to buying politicians. >> reporter: trump quickly put on the spot asked to explain past comments that the fox moderator called disparaging against women but no apology from the business mogul. >> i think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. >> reporter: the other contenders trying to bring the focus back to the issues. >> i'm pro-life. i've always been pro-life. >> reporter: illegal immigration and an area where this field has had differing opinions. >> a majority of the candidates on this stage have supported amnesty. i have never supported amnesty. >> i believe the great majority of people coming here illegally want to provide for their family. we need to control our border. >> reporter: and a fiery debate between rand paul an eye doctor and new jersey governor chris christie a former prosecutor

moment? >> that was one of my least favorite moments because they got nasty. got a little personal. debate the issue. that's a serious debate. it's so funny, those two are like two blocks away from each other on the stage. but the exact opposite thing happened with john kasich, the governor of ohio home field advantage if you will. he was asked a question that was kind of meant to put him in a box, asked about what would you say to your children, how would you explain your position on same sex children if one of your children were gay. this is how he came back. >> because somebody doesn't think the way i do doesn't mean that i can't care about them or can't love them. >> we need to remember that in this country. that's how our debates don't take on that tone too often. we disagree and have to hate each other. that was a perfect way to handle the answer. >> it doesn't have to be vicious. >> he wants to be a different kind of republican. that came across tonight. >> i loved his answer. >> okay. i have to say for me it was probably the moment where they
asked donald trump when did you become a republican. >> of course when did you actually become a republican. >> i hate the concept of abortion. i hate the concept of abortion. and then since then i've very much evolved. >> he didn't answer the question. >> he dodged that one. >> right. >> and that's sort of the thing. he may be the front-runner right now in the polls but is he going to have the momentum to where republicans across america would support him right now? >> it's still early and celebrity and name recognition is a big part of this right now. >> but he didn't hurt himself tonight. a lot of people would tell you. >> i think so. >> moving on what is take away going to be? a moment that people remember or we had no game-changer tonight necessarily. >> i think that people will remember that first question that he's not going to support the republican party. it was the gop debate. >> shoshana abc news deputy political director shoshana walsh. it's been awhile. >> new mom, welcome back.

republican presidential candidates, all 17 of them now after last night's big debate. >> most of the focus was on the man at the top of the polls in the middle of the is taken, donald trump who is getting slammed for his comments about women. abc's dan harris has more. >> reporter: right from the jump, donald trump made waves. >> is there anyone on stage and can i see hands, who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the republican party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person? mr. trump? >> i cannot say i can totally make that pledge if i'm the nominee. i will pledge i will not run as an independent. >> a few other candidates said a few other things and then 21 minutes in, it was back to trump for another doozy. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals. your twitter account --
>> only rosie o'donnell. i think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. >> moments later, rosie herself weighed in on twitter "try explaining that to your kids." the testiest moment of the night didn't involve trump but instead new jersey governor chris christie and kentucky senator rand paul. it was over the nsa's bulk data collection which christie supports and paul does not. >> i want to collect more records from terrorists but less records from innocent americans. >> when you're sitting in a subcommittee just blowing hot air about this, you can say things like that. >> you fundamentally misunderstand the bill of rights. >> to be sure there was plenty of hillary clinton bashing. >> if hillary is the candidate, which i doubt, that would be a dream come true. >> if i'm our nominee, how is hillary clinton going to lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? >> everywhere in the world that hillary clinton touched is more messed up today. >> here in the same arena in
cleveland where the republican party will hold its national convention next year. but perhaps the most bizarre riff on hillary came from the donald who talked about why he contributed to her in the past. >> with hillary clinton, i said be at my wedding and she came to my wedding. you know why? she had no choice. >> reporter: dan harris, abc news, new york. >> what a night. >> that was -- >> looking forward to that for a long time. >> hillary, by the way, the only thing she tweeted back was about jon stewart leaving saying she was sorry he's going. >> she didn't engage. i give fox news credit for building this thing up over weeks and even months. >> yes, they did their homework, didn't they? >> you know what? it was like we were all waiting for march madness, the selection show. who is going to make the cut to be on stage. they built up so much excitement. i give them credit for this excitement. our karen travers is there in cleveland, continues our coverage now. we heard what he had to say on
the stage before the debate now. he was trying to downplay expectations. after the debate now, what was trump saying? >> reporter: t.j., some hurt feelings for donald trump. a little surprising afterwards. he was in the spin room saying he felt that fox was too hard on him. in particular, he said megan kelly's questions for him were just tougher than she was on any of the other candidates. of course, donald trump being donald trump he said everybody's telling me this that i had the toughest time tonight. but you know, donald trump says he didn't prep for this. he says he's not a debater. he's prepared for anything. one republican tweeting tonight saying you know, if donald trump says he can take on china, he should be able to take on three moderators from fox news. >> oh, interesting. a lot of people say you've really got to the prepare to have vision in mind. i want to talk about number two and number three in the polls, jeb bush and scott walker. how did they deliver tonight? >> reporter: they didn't do much to set themselves apart. you could call it a draw really.
jeb bush second or third in the polls, scott walker the same. they were right next to donald trump. that's a tough position to be in, reena, because if you're going to get it from donald trump, you're going to get it from the other sides. that was one thing that was interesting last night. the candidates did not seem to want to give donald trump more attention so they turned on the other front-runners they wanted to bring down. that meant they were getting a lot of attention. but just not really a format for both of them to shine not their best night. >> well, karen, thank you so much. reporting live for us from cleveland. >> thanks for staying up with us, karen. >> thanks. >> stay with abc news for more reaction to the republican debate. look for more coverage on "america this morning" and indepth analysis on abcnews.com. turning to the malaysian airlines passenger jet, confusion and frustration this morning over more debris washing ashore on the same island where that wing flap was found. the latest from abc's david wright.
