7:06 am
donald trump unfairly" and "trump has his own secret plan to replace the cabinet with his twitter followers." >> they can't toyith me like they toy with everybody else. so let them have their debate and letet's see how they do with the ratings. >> reporter: as for megyn kelly -- this >> this is a lightweight. megyn kelly shouldn't be in the debate. >> reporter: the fox news anchorr saying overnight her question to trump is the first debate about his treatment of women w fair game. >> i maintain it was a tough but fair question and we agreed to disagree. reporter: i asked trump if his rivals will now use this to their advantage. do you think by skipping the debate they'll attack your temperament. >> no, i think my temperament is great. i built areat corporation. i built a great company but i think when fox sends o out their little like written by a child about putin, et cetera, et cetera, then i say let the have their debate. reporter: but overnight senator ted cruz insinuating
7:07 am
the debate stage with the other candidates then i would like to invite donald right now to engage in a one-on-one debate with me any time between now and the iowa caucuses. >> repter: now trump has a new fight brewing over his religion. jeb bush questioning if trump is even a chrisistian at all. >> you don't think he's a christian. >> no, i don't know what he is.. >> reporter: and this morning ted cruz hammering that attack about donald trump skipping the dete. he's actually launched a website called where attacks had imfor missing the debate. as for foxews they released a statement overnight that reads in part "we can't give in to terrorizations towards any other of employees." >> let's talk to his campaign manager. you heard it right there, cory. mr. trump is still welcome at the debate.
7:08 am
>> well, george, it's great -- thanks for having me on. the short answer, i don't think so. look, here's where we are, megyn kelly iss totally obsessed with mr. trump. she's done multipl shows on why he shouldn't be even involved in the race on television. she's completely obsessed with him. it's impossible to have a fair and honest debate. >> you know -- > hold on, donald trump is the best debater on that stage. he's participated in six debates. he's won every single one by every poll. he's n afraid to debate anybody. he does more television and radio interviews than all other candidates combined and answered your questions including yours multle times. the issue is one of fairness. >> let me press you on that, corey. >> mocking a front-runner, that's not appropriate to have someone like that on the debate stage. >> that's a separate issue from megyn kelly because, you know you say t that megyn kelellyppears to be obsessed with donald trump. right now it appears that he seems to be obsessed with her. jut put o a tweet sayining i
7:09 am
because that would not be politically correct. instead i will only call her a lightweight reporter. why not go up on the stage and take the question. >> look, he's notot afraid to take the ququestion. been on six debate stages and won every single one and every poll said that and answers every question from every reporter including yours. he's happy to sit dunn and do interviews and answer the questionshat the american people want to hear about. what fox wants to do is they want to have 24 million people tune inn to watch donald trump so that their anchors can have the story about them. this is what happened in the first fox debate. no one was talking about the answers that the candidates gave, they were all talking about the moderator's questions, the exact same thing that happened with cnbc and the rnc removed them from future debates -- >> if that's what you're worried about how about ted cruz's challenge, a one-on-on debate with donald trp before the iowa caucuses? >> look, ted cruz, if he's the
7:10 am
down to a two-person race donald him. ted cruz talked about how gait his campaign is and has the greatest ground game in the history of iowa. what we see is his position on ethanol has flipped andnd flopped and governor bransome has said he should n be electcted in the state of iowa, a remarkable feat for a sitting governor. we see that number of people have come out and basically said mr. trump is the best person in this race for the state of iowa and moving forwardncluding -- >> corey -- >> including jerry falwell jr. it's up to the people of iowa to decide who ultimately on monday will be the caucus wiwinner but can tell you donald trump is in the state of iowa competing every dhar for votes. >> corey, y're a political pro. aren't you worried about that possibility of an empty podium at tomorrow night's debate? >> look, you know what it is, when donald trump goes tomorrow night into des moines, iowa and we start raising money for veterans and wounded warriors have multiples of millions of dollars raised for them and the
7:11 am
they want to support that and fox goes back and say they should have had 24 million watching their debate instead of 1 million it's a disservice to the american people. you and ioth know the only reasonon their ratings are as high as they were on the first debate is because donald trump was on the stage. highest rated cable television show in the history of tv and that's because donald trump was on the stage. people who bought advertising time thinking donald trump willould be on the stage will be very disappointed when nobody decides to watch it becau politicians are all talk, no action. >> corey lewin do you skilewandowski. >> our latest poll showing bernie sanderseading in iowa. >> reporter: bernie sanders is
7:12 am
nationally and w while theace is really close here in iowa, sanders clearly has momentum. closing in on hillary clinton in iowa,ernie sanders confidently took a detour to neighboring minnesota. >> what a turnout. >> reporr: overnight 15,000 people turned out in st. paul after 6,000 flocked to see bernie sanders in duluth. >> as we're seeing here today that has the energy that has the thusiasm, that has the momentum to take us all the way to t the white house. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: today sanders visits the white house for a private meeting with president obama who just this week rejected comparisons between his historic 2008 campaign and what sanderss doing now. >> our children's future is shaped both by the values of their parents and the policies of their nation. >> reporter: in a new tv ad clinton's campaign touts her
7:13 am
told a crowd of 500 supporters stands in contrast to berninie sanders. >> that i'm not jusust shouting slan, i'm not just engaging in rhetoric. i've thought t this through. i have a plan. >> repter: and when a supporter in iowa suggested inton should appoint obama to the supreme court she seemed genuinely intrigued. >> nobody has ever suggested that to me. wow. i love that. wow. >> reporter: there is more good news for bernie sanders in iowaa this morning. check out this new poll from quinnipiac university of iowa democrats, it puts bernie sanders with 49%, hillary clinton with 45%, going into this last week, another poll, george, showing bernie sanders pulling ahead in iowa. >> does have some momentum there. we'll bring in matth dowd, as well. got to t talk more about donald trump and t that big decision. let me begin with you, you just hear corey and says donald
7:14 am
does this hurt him or help him. >> we've gone from uncharted territy to the middle of the ocean in the dark with no compass. i have no idea what this is going to do. i think it all turns on whether the voters in iowa think that it's a sign of strength that he's not doing it or aign of weakness and we don't know right now what the perception will be and thahat's wre i think it ll turn whether it's an asset or liability over the in ex-five day. >> what has worked for donald trump upntil now he always appears to be strong and always to be unafraid to say whatever is on his mind. you've been reporting. his opponents saying he's afraid of taking tough questions. >> oh, and this is ann incrediy high risk move, george, at a really bizarre time. everything seemed to be breaking donald trump's way. he was moving ahead, his l largest margin nationallyly, moving ahead in iowa and then he does this facing that ris that you asked corey about o havaving an empty podium at center stage, already his opponentsts are saying thihis is a sign that donald trump is just
7:15 am
high risk. >> so going back to your ananysis, matthew, is this seen as strength or weakness, what's your gutn where that goes? >> i think in the short term reaction i think his voters, donald trump's voters will see it as a sign of strength. i think that's what the immediate reaction will be. it puts lid on his capacity to grow because others see it as a sign of weakness but for the short term up to iowa ihink they'll see its a sign of strength. >> thanks very much. a clarification from yesterday's interview with donald trump. i incorrectly identified a republican strategist in one of my questions, it was henry bar barber, not haley barbour. i apologize. a 23-year-old american citizen behind bars accused of planni a massacre at masonic mple in milwaukee pierre thas has the latest. good morning, pierre. >>eporter: good morning, amy.
