respect unless she treats me, you know, in a certain manner in which case that will be the end of that. but i am certainly starting off with the, you know, the feeling that i'm going to treat her with great respect. >> reporter: trump's debate prep coming as he could be facing new legal trouble. new york attorney general eric sneiderman now investigating the candidate's charitable group, the trump foundation, the inquiry comes after a series of reports by "the washington post" questioning trump's donations. "the showing trump had not donated to his own charity since 2008 and that the trump foundation used $20,000 in funds to buy a six-foot-tall painting of trump. the trump campaign releasing a statement calling sneiderman a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the clinton foundation for years and has endorsed hillary clinton for president. this is nothing more than another left wing hit job.

york. questions being raised in florida as well. >> look, the attorney general of new york, that really looks a lot like a partisan hit job, somebody who has gone after him in the past. obviously elected democrat but there are big questions about the trump foundation. we know a fraction about it than we know about the clinton foundation and a fraction of the size, much smaller but a lot of unanswered questions. >> the clinton foundation faced these questions and shut down if hillary clinton gets elected president because conflicts and "newsweek" out with a major cover story about trump's businesses in the company of trump and basically lays out the case, an investigation of his businesses around the world and says that they are so extensive, so vast, so tied in many cases to foreign governments he would have to find a way to shut them down or face impossible conflicts as president. >> a vast ebbitt prize, again, that we know very little about. there are some public disclosures, why "newsweek" was able to do the story, what trump said he would turn the
7:07 am
organization over to his children. the problem here, george, is that his children are his most important political advisers so it's really hard to see how he can untangle this and expect the clinton campaign will make an issue of this virtually every day from now till november. >> ivanka will join us live. i want to ask about president obama. we saw him campaigning hard in philadelphia. >> sure did. >> what's his role now with the campaign? >> boy, he really seemed to have the mojo back there, didn't he? this was the obama of 2008, lovi out there not just making the case for hillary clinton, but playing the attack dog going right at donald trump, you're going to see him out there a lot in the final months. >> like he's the vice presidential candidate. >> and he's loving it. >> okay, thank you very much. of course, as you said ivanka trump here in our next half hour. but now to that cyberhack targeting some of america's top athletes. u.s. officials defending them after files revealed simone biles, the williams sisters and

7:10 am
say, yes they are and see certain telling details in each of the codes they use that all link back to moscow. >> they don't mind that you know. >> apparently not. that's the message they're trying to send as dick clarke said. >> more coming. >> several thousand overnight on the dnc put online not as explosive as the previous ones during the convention but a lot more coming. >> seems lying all the u.s. at lets taking it in stride and basketball star elena delle donne surgery when she wrote with this picture with her thumb's up. i'd hike to thank the hackers for making the world aware that i legally take a prescription for a condition i've been diagnosed with, thanks, guys. >> because once again they did nothing wrong, these athletes did nothing wrong and played by the rules. >> played by the rules and nothing to be ashamed of. elena, happy rerecovery. hopefully a speedy recovery for you. let's switch gears and look at this video. a scary attack on officers in

7:12 am
>> i thank god that we're not planning three funerals right now. >> reporter: the two injured officers expected to be okay. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> boy, just horrible right there. we move on now to that university of north carolina football player suss spended prosecutor the team after a woman accuses him of sexual assault and demands justice. linzie janis has the story. >> reporter: university of north carolina football player allen artis is suspended from the team his arrest for misdemeanor sexual assault. his accuser, delaney robinson, coming forward tuesday saying she hoped for harsher charges but felt authorities and the university were dragging their feet. >> my life has changed forever while the person who assaulted me remains as a student, as a football player on this campus. >> reporter: according to robinson after a night of drinking styx months ago at a
7:13 am
she said she never met before. she went straight to the hospital afterwards then to the police who she says treated her like a suspect. >> did i lead him on? have i hooked up with him before? do i often have one-night stands? did i even say no? >> reporter: robinson and her lawyers say an interrogation tapes they've seen investigators joked with her alleged attacker telling him to keep playing football and not to worry. >> this man police told him not to sweat it. how can this happen? >> reporter: also saying despite physical evidence the d.a. failed to charge artis so they settled for a lesser misdemeanor charge using an unusual north carolina law. robinson telling her story under oath to a magistrate who issued that arrest warrant. now if artis is convicted of that misdemeanor, he could face
7:14 am
the case is still open and more serious charges could still be brought. meanwhile, george, the university says privacy laws prevent it from commenting on the case. >> we will keep an eye on it. more trouble for samsung. the owner of a samsung galaxy note 7 says he was driving down a highway in florida charging his phone when it suddenly exploded. you see the aftermath right there. the fire spread through his entire car. this is just the samsung blames a battery cell issue telling them to power down the phone and has not issued an official recall. edward snowden says he deserves a pardon on moral grounds from president obama and says he claimed the country for the better when he exposed the secret surveillance programs. he is currently living in russia. and scientists trapped by polar bears at a weather station

7:17 am
the stereo speakers i mentioned, those were also enabled because of the jack is not there anymore. >> if you could go back to the airpods, that was a big deal. people are fearful it's going to fall out. i'm going to lose them. have you all discussed that. >> there is a little case that you put the airpods in, magnetically, they're sort of sucked down into the case, it's a great place to both charge them and keep them. awhile and because they don't have wires on them, the wires tend to help the airbud to fall out, right, because it applies weight on those. by snipping the wires, i have never personally had one fall out. >> let me see those. >> you got to see this. >> let me see these suckers. >> you got to see this. >> try it out. >> okay. >> i've been on treadmills. walking.

7:31 am
protesters who rushed ryan lochte on "dancing with the stars," they're now revealing why they did it and we're going to tell you how the show is responding to that and what lochte is aing about that. all that coming up. >> we heard from tom bergeron yesterday. a lot more to come. first amy is over with ivanka trump. >> good morning. ivanka joined her father to roll out a new child care proposal guaranteeing maternity leave for new mother, the plan could help widen trump's appeal with women voters and here's what ivanka had to say about it. >> this it's a family issue. it's an american issue. it's an issue that's often been discussed but has yet to be solved. my father plans to change that. >> ivanka trump joins us now after that announcement last night and, ivanka, at the center of this plan, six weeks guaranteed paid maternity leave for mothers across the u.s. workforce. did it take any convincing? >> no, it's long overdue and
7:32 am
plan dealing with one of the biggest issues in our country which is the inaffordable, inaccessible child care system that's failing american families so now child care is actually the single greatest household expense in much of the country exceeding even the cost of housing so a lot of people don't realize this, but families, families with young children especially before they get into the school system really need relief. plan for how to make child care more affordable, more accessible, create more optionality by regulation reduction and creating a more dynamic child care market so we were very excited about it and obviously the maternity leave component is one component that i feel very strongly about and i think is long overdue in this country. >> the clinton campaign quick to pounce on it saying that it wasn't good enough.
7:33 am
why not also deal with paternity leave, why did you not include fathers in the plan? >> well, i think we took a giant leap forward with the plan and, you know, respectfully, the hillary clinton has been around for decades and there's no policy benefiting either mothers or fathers in terms of paid leave. so i think the fact that we are advocating for this and advo advocating forward so strongly and taking leadership on this is testament in itself to our thoughts on this subject, but certainly she had have a concept like that. >> for the record she's running though on her website she is guaranteeing up to 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to care for a new child or a seriously ill family member. >> we have not been in public office for the last several decades and she has. so she could have instituted some of those policies in that role and has not done so. >> you're an executive vice president at the trump organization. you said last night that the trump organization headed by your father does offer paid
7:34 am
of employees of your father? >> it is and also adoption leave. so it's a great thing and at my own business since inception i've offered eight weeks paid leave, only 10% of american companies offer that benefit so it is quite unique and this policy is to encourage more companies and to encourage all americans to be able to get the benefit of it should they be new and important. i'll go a step further in my own business i also offer flexible hours. i don't police sick days or vacation days, i really believe that when you hire people who are self-starters, you don't need to police those sorts of things and i think it's very important to create work environments that are results oriented and we've spoken about this a little in the past. >> we have, indeed. >> and i think especially for women who are managing so many
7:35 am
of the home the primary caregiver and the child care policy is so important because as primary care givers we're pulled in many directions and that's reflected in the fact that there's tremendous wage disparity and greater when you become a mother and now motherhood is the greatest preich iterf wage and equality even over gender. >> new questions being raised about what would happen to the trump organization if your father indeed becomes p of this country. given the foreign investments and ties from the trump organization to foreign investments. what will you and your family do to prevent any potential con flibls of interest? >> there's something so much bigger than our business at stake and that's the future of this country. as a private business we can make decisions that are not in our best interest. we're not beholden 0 anyone to shareholders. we can say, you know what, we'll do less deals and not going to do that deal even though it's a
7:36 am
reasonable because it could create a conflict of interest and we'll act incredibly responsibly and my father already said he would put it into a blind trust and it would be run by us. so he's been very articulate on that fact and outspoken but this is so much bigger than another deal and we all recognize that. >> the candidates' health have become a big issue especially with hillary clinton. he told our david muir he might release more of information. i understand you may be going on dr. oz later today to discuss your father's health. can you tell us what he's prepared to release later today? >> i cannot. i'll allow him to release it when he does but i will tell you that the strength, the stamina that is required of what he does every day is unbelievable. and i was out on the campaign trail with him for one day yesterday and i need this coffee in the morning so he's does this every day.
7:37 am
>> his health is unbelievable. so i should be so lucky to keep his schedule these days. >> all right. ivanka trump as always we appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thank you. thank you for having me. >> back to you guys. >> all right. now, thank you, amy. coming up on our big board, jonbenet ramsey's brother breaking his silence about being a suspect in a murder. plus, the fight to get tickets to your favorite concerts and shows, a battle is now brewing with those bots buying and marking up ticket prices. for your wallet and our insiders will join us back in two

rated everyone 10 and up. back now with the big board and weighing in on our top stories starting at the table with our friend dan abrams. >> good to be here. >> good to see you. let's start -- burke ramsey telling him it
7:40 am
hadn't been under the cloud even though dna evidence cleared him. >> he wasn't a real suspect and i know a lot will be frustrated to hear him particularly episode two of dr. phil's interview. he was never a real suspect and not a real suspect now and this interview is making him seem like a suspect. he was 9 years old at the time. remember that. there are questions being asked, well, when this happened why didn't you say this and why didn't you include jonbenet in a years old at the time. 9-year-olds and that's another thing, by the way, if burke ramsey had committed this crime when he was interrogated at age 9, you don't think he would have cracked back at the time. >> a lot of pple talking about his demeanor. his demeanor, unemotional but he's addressing it in this interview. but do you think -- why do you think he decided to speak out now. >> i think it was a mistake in retrospect. in particular watching him.
7:41 am
on his face which is just going to lead people to ask more questions. i don't think it's a smile. i don't think he's happy. i think it's just an uncomfortable sort of facial thing and that is just the way he appears. i don't know burke ramsey but from watching the interview that's what it appeared to me but on the whole i don't think this was a smart thing to do. >> he was paid. >> he better have gotten paid a lot of money to do this otherwise there was no reason for him to do this because the whole way this is being framed on "dr. potential reason that burke ramsey did it. >> revelation. >> and he's going to respond to it today. >> he's not a suspect and even the people who think still to this day that john and patsy ramsey ought to be suspects, the people in law enforcement don't think burke ramsey ought to be a suspect and i think that's really important to remember. >> all right, well, we'll keep an eye on that story and keep watching. to the big headline about
7:42 am
stake in the company and became a spokesperson is showing signs of trouble and its ceo resigning and stocks have fallen and fitness expert chris powell is here, and chris is joining us live, and, chris, the oprah effect is real. we've all seen it. you attach oprah to your business and usually takes off and always and continues to be successful. in this case weight watchers, it's falling. what do you think is the reason for that? >> yeah, for years the "o" factor a grand slam for any business and in all ir actually up now at this point over where it was last year, you just saw that big $1.4 billion spike in a matter of a month and we've seen it fall 1.2 billion over the last nine months and so the thing is it's almost like losing 10 pounds and gaining 9 of it back. you still lost a pound. so but the biggest thing with oprah when she got on board we all including myself we all expected something exciting, new and innovative and wateight
7:43 am
can't afford to do that in this weight loss market space. >> there's so much competition, fitness trackers and new natural foods so weight watchers isn't there alone. >> yeah, you're right. you just said the magic words. it's these fitness trackers and apps, they are -- it's technology. that is the future of fitness and weight loss for 9 masses. they offer creative, fun, exciting ways to lose weight and educate you and bring in a whole community and w it's not going anywhere and only going to be growing. >> we found out she likes bread like a lot of us do. >> she looks good, though. chris powell, thanks very much. moving on to that brewing battle against tict callers. adele and beyonce have taken it on and "hamilton" taking on the fight calling on congress to regulate this. alex gale from "complex" magazine. what can congress do.
7:44 am
who has tried to buy a ticket for "hamilton" will tell you. they generally go for $199 and be on stubhub for $2,000. there was a report by the new york attorney general that had one company making $16 million in unlicensed ticket seller. ticketmaster had a lawsuit against another company that was buying 200,000 tickets a day and this is despite the fact they have security measures like captions where you have to type in weird letters and limits to where you can only buy four these bots have allowed them to get around it and the law that the senate is considering and will probably pass, you have a company in tennessee buying tickets in new york, and the enforcement is all over the map and all over the place. >> well, alex, if congress passes this bill that addresses this and president obama signs it, will it really fix the problem? >> you know, i think it's not
7:45 am
