morning. >> yeah. we had at least 24 strikes for the city of san francisco. thanks for watching, everyone. ♪ good morning to your viewers on the west. it's thursday, february 18th, 2016. welcome to "cbs this morning." ted cruz dares donald trump to sue him over an attack ad. we reveal the results of a new national cbs news poll. google backs rival apple in its fight against the fbi over unlocking a terrorist's cell phone. and seven marathon on seven continents in seven days. a single mom who is the first american woman to complete this daunting challenge. we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener." your world in 90 seconds. this has not been a typical race by any sense and i don't think anyone is surprised
7:01 am
that donald is threatening to sue people. he has done that most of his adult life. >> slugging it out in south carolina. >> he doesn't have one republican endorsement from the senate. think of it. hard to believe. >> i like that. >> president obama is planning a trip to cuba next month. he'll be the first sitting president to make a state visit to cuba in nearly 90 years. hollywood presbyterian medical center attacked by hackers. >> the hospital paid $17,000 in ransom. >> they know who is behind a deadly explosion. >> turkey's prime minister says the attacker was a syrian national. >> apple fighting a court order to break into a phone used by the san bernardino terrorists. >> they say this creates a back door that endangers all of our cell phones. nobody has a right to defy a legal search warrant. >> the pop's last public event
7:02 am
in mexico drew huge crowds. the plane made an emergency landing. incredible that no one was injured. >> all that -- >> win the game. >> what an amazing win. >> showed a lot of grit and we were able to win. any questions? >> gondola ride through venice! >> what country do you think we are sending you to? >> france. >> can we still get it? >> all that matters! >> police in florida arrested an 18-year-old boy accused of practicing medicine without a license. >> anyone who thinks that kid is a doctor needs to see a doctor. >> on "cbs this morning." >> steven, look. people are getting tired of the negative. you know, in new hampshire, i took -- >> shut up! got a big laugh out of that. crowd pleaser. >> we are not sure they are voting for you over me. >> that's true. >> we will have to wait and see. >> would you vote for me? ♪
7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." the latest cbs news national poll out this morning shows donald trump remains the republican presidential front-runner. 35% of gop primary voters across the country support trump. that nearly doubles ted cruz. he is in second place at 18%. >> but another new poll finds cruz taking a narrow two-point lead in the national race. the candidates are still slugging it out in south carolina and major garrett is in mt. pleasant, just outside of charleston, following all of the republican candidates with two days to go before the republican primary. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump has a big lead here and a team of lawyers he says is ready to sue top rival ted cruz, not once but twice. once over a campaign ad and a second time over cruz's canadian birth. cruz has argued nine cases
7:04 am
before supreme court can't wait and may take the deposition of trump himself. this concludes the law and order portion of our south carolina republican presidential primary coverage. >> i've had great success with lawsuits. i've had great success in things i do and i don't know that we are going to have a lawsuit, but we certainly want to keep somebody honest. >> reporter: in dueling televised town halls last night, donald trump and ted cruz aired their legal laundry. >> i laughed out loud. this has not been a typical race by any sense. and i don't think anyone is surprised that donald is threatening to sue people. he has done that most of his adult life. >> reporter: trump has threatened to sue over this ad that shows his previous support for abortion rights. >> i am pro choice in every respect. >> reporter: trump's lawyers said in a letter to cruz's campaign the ad was, quote, replete with outright lies and misrepresents that mr. trump is pro choice. wednesday night, cruz said a lawsuit filed over one's own words would fail. >> it is quite literally the most ridiculous theory i've ever
7:05 am
heard that telling the voters what donald trump's actual record is is deceitful and lying. i invited mr. trump. i said, please, donald, file this lawsuit. >> reporter: also part of a town hall discussion, marco rubio echoed trump's charge that cruz is a serial liar. >> i said he has been lying because if you say something that isn't true and you say it over and over again and you know that it's not true, there is no other word for it. >> reporter: rubio has the support of south carolina governor nikki haley. not necessarily a metaphor of the future, hailey stumbled out of the gate. >> this is one of many bruises i will take from marco rubio. we make presidents. let's make marco rubio the next president of the united states. god bless. >> reporter: rubio is now cornered the market on new establishment south carolina republican endorsements. hailey, trey gouddy and and
7:06 am
senator tom scott. john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> morning, charlie. >> how do people make sense whan they see competing national polls? >> well, they should treat them very, very gingerly. in february of 2012, rick santorum was up over mitt romney by about ten points. what they give us a sense of where the low information voter is. as primaries and caucuses, the ones we have been focusing on as the picture gets more national and we have these big days like super tuesday, national polls give us a better sense as the contest gets bigger. basically, right now, the game is in south carolina. >> how much of a difference do you think, john, governor haley's endorsement will make for marco rubio? >> in a year where the establishment is in such foul odor with the republican voters, i think establishment endorsements probably don't mean that much.
7:07 am
they don't mean that much anyway. nikki haley endorsed mitt romney and newt gingrich won the south carolina primary in 2012. so i think in the battle between marco rubio and jeb bush it's nice to have something on your side if you're marco rubio. and so in that respect, it helps. but it's not going to, i don't think, give him a huge boost in south carolina. >> john, in some ways, is haley's endorsement of marco rubio a blow to jeb bush? apparently, former president george w. bush met privately with haley on monday to ask for that endorsement for his brother. >> jeb bush's argument is governors know it better than senators. and he said, i've had experience. so it would have been nice to have a fellow governor say, i agree with that. and so in the news cycles, it's not good for jeb bush. he was trying to build a little something in south carolina. if he doesn't do well in south carolina, which means beating rubio, it's a real blow to his campaign. so, yes, jeb bush would have
7:08 am
liked this, but his challenges go well beyond the endorsements he is not getting. >> john, let me switch you across the country to nevada where polls in the democratic race suggest tightening and very tight. >> yeah. the key thing to watch about nevada is if bernie sanders does better he has to do well with non-white voters and that's one of the bigger challenges for his campaign. if he can do it in nevada, maybe do it in other places. >> john, thank you so much. sources confirm to cbs news overnight that the white house is set to announce today that president obama will make a historic visit to cuba. tweeting we still have differences with cuba which i will look at completely. the president and the first lady is going to travel to havana. no sitting president has visited havana since calvin coolidge in 1928. there is your fun fact for the day. >> i'm writing it down. apple is getting support
7:09 am
this morning from another high-tech heavyweight in its standoff with the fbi. google's ceo says apple is right to defy a judge's order to help unlock the iphone used by one of the san bernardino killers. the fbi needs just four digits to crack this code. jeff pegues is in washington with the escalating fight. jeff were, good morning. >> good morning. apple's lawyers are digging in. industry sources say the tech giant is ready to fight this all the way to the supreme court. the fbi is locked out of syed farook's iphone 5c. apple is not a company that hands over its customer's personal information. the u.s. magistrate judge ordered apple to wipe out the data if the wrong pass code is entered ten times. apple's ceo tim cook says the tech giant doesn't have the technology and that developing it would create a back door to not only that iphone but millions of devices. the white house defended the department of justice's request
7:10 am
for apple to aid in an investigation. the president calls an important national priority. >> they are not asking apple to redesign its product or to create a new back door to one of their products. they are simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device. >> as the war on terror and the right to privacy collide, cnet's dan ackerman says apple and the fbi have competing and compelling interests. >> apple says if you promise you only use it once it's going to get used again and again, and once you create the precedent of giving that access once you're not able to deny at the time next time. >> google's ceo posted a series of tweets wednesday citing with apple, saying we give law enforcement access to data based on valid legal orders, but that is wholly different than requiring companies to enable hacking of customer devices and data. in the two months since farook and his wife tashfeen malik
7:11 am
killed 14 people in san bernardino, california, the fbi has been poring over theirs electronic and internet history and discovered evidence that farook and malik sympathized with isis and other islamic radicals leading up to the terror attack. publicly, apple says it doesn't have the technology to do what the fbi wants, but a top industry official tells cbs news that apple could theoretically write the software to comply with that ruling. charlie >> jeff were thanks. a los angeles hospital admits this morning it paid nearly $17,000 in ransom to hackers. the fbi is investigating the cyberattack that disabled the computer network at the hollywood presbyterian medical center. carter evans is at the hospital with the story behind the ransom payment. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the hospital says patient care was not affected by the attack and all systems are back up to normal now. authorities are now searching
7:12 am
for these hackers who were paid in bitcoin. a digital currency that is nearly impossible to trace. and while the hospital says it notified authorities right away, we're now learning that may not be the case. in a brazen attack, hackers disabled the computer network of the hollywood presbyterian medical center. and a source familiar with the investigation tells cbs news, the hospital paid the nearly $17,000 ransom to take back control before contacting law enforcement. in a statement the president of the hospital said, the quickest and most efficient way to restore our systems was to pay the ransom. >> if they decide to pay the ransom, it probably means that they didn't have very good backups and weren't able to recover the data and that the data would have been lost if they didn't pay the ransom. >> reporter: on february 5th, hackers infiltrated the hospital's computer network with what is known as ransomware that held sensitive information and files on the network hostage and making it accessible only with the use of a decryption key
7:13 am
provided after ransom was paid. >> hospitals are a very big target now. >> reporter: dave kennedy runs a cybersecurity firm and has experience with these type of attacks. he says after highly publicized data breaches involving credit card companies, hackers are moving on to easier targets and many hospitals have been slow to adeqately secure their networks. a 2015 study found that criminal cyberattacks on health care organizations have increased 125% since 2010, and the danger can sometimes be life-threatening. >> when the ransom pieces affect the machines it's causing the system to stop functioning and it can definitely impact life and systems that support life. >> reporter: now if hackers had gained access to medical records, they will have social security number and other private information that could be sold on the black market. cybersecurity experts tell us it's the smaller networks like
7:14 am
hospitals and schools that are most vulnerable to ransomeware attacks. >> thank you, carter. this morning, cbs news poll shows americans are split over the president's plan to nominate a successor to supreme court justice antonin scalia. 47% in our poll say the president should choose a nominee this year and 46% say the nomination should be made after the november election. margaret brennan is at the white house with reaction. >> reporter: good morning. president obama's decision to skip the saturday funeral of justice scalia is being seen by some as a snub of the conservative judge and a missed opportunity by others. former obama administration official steve rattner tweeted, if we want to reduce partisanship we can honor those who we disagree with. the white house says this is a misunderstanding. the president will pay his respects on friday when scalia's
7:15 am
body is in repose at the supreme court. while then president george w. bush delivered the eulogy at justice rankin's funeral his predecessor bill clinton attended two services and skipped the services for two others. the white house won't say whether it was the president's schedule or security concerns or another factor that has led to this decision. but it's yet another politically charged moment in the fierce battle to replace justice scalia's empty seat on the supreme court. >> thank you, margaret. turkey blames this morning a syrian with ties to a kurdish militia for a devastating bomb attack. the car bomb yesterday killed 28 people and hit dozens more in ankara, the capital city. turkey vows to retaliate for the attack. radioactive military is missing in iraq and raising fears that isis was acquired a dangerous new weapon.
