7:01 am
in times square only on "gma." all right, and good morning, america. there he is, c.j., the winner of the westminster kennel club's best in show award. he's just arriving here in times square. he took a walk there on our green carpet in case you missed it. we cannot wait to meet the top dog coming up. hearar what heas to say about his win. the biggest bone of all. >> a great-looking dog. >> walks like a winner we will get to that. we have breang news overnight. apple is refusing to follow a government order to hack the san bernardino shooter's phone. the fbi believes important clues about accomplices and more plots could be hidden on the phone but apple says complying with the government order could endanger everyone with an iphone. abc's pierre thomas has all the latest from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's a showdown between the fbi and apple.
7:02 am
open that iphone as it hunts for clues in the san bernardino massacre. apple saying no way and this morning a federal court is weighingn. a federal judge in california ordering apple to help the fbi unlock an iphone used by syed farook who went on a murderous rampage with his wife leaving 14 dead in san bernardino. >> we still have one of those killer's phones we have not been able to open and it's been over two months still working on it. >> reporter: the ruling could be a key victory in their long-runng battle with apple and other tech companies about the government's ability to access encrypted data on smartphones and tablets. apple vowing to appeal and saying it would put the privacy of hundreds of millionat risk and telling us overnighthe government is asking apple to hack our own users and fear this demand would undermine the very freedoms our government prototects. the fbi has been unable to get into the smartphone because
7:03 am
ten unsuccessful attempts would cause it to erase key data and make the phone permanently inaccessible. >> the battle is the traditional one between the security of society and the cost of individual privacy. >> reporter: but that sesecurity feature a critical roadblock. the fbi has been unable to get inside to look at texts or e-mails which might help them determine who farook and his wife might have been communicating with and where they might have traveled before the massacre. investigators are desperate to find out what happened in an 18-minute gap between the attack and the couple's deadly encounter with law enforcement. the couple aegedly swore allegiance to the leader of isis and the fbi wants to know the extent of isis' involvement if any. that phone may hold the critical answers but the security on that phone is precisely what customers want if their phone is stolen or lost so privacy versus security in a legal fight that could go all the way to the supreme court. george.
7:04 am
analyst n abrams about this. such a momentous case, dan and apple is likely to be under tremendous pressure. what does the law require? >> up to this point the legal standard has been reasonable technical assistance, right. helping with a password is no big deal butow these new phones have become so technologically advanced that at this point, to offer the assiance that the government needs, they have to literally create a whole new system to back door these phones and apple is basically saying, look, once we create this, it's going to get out anand as a rult, everything we've built in terms of protecting security and privacy is going to be out the door so this is one of those ultimate battles between the government's right to get information for an investigation versus typically it's the media fights very often for the right to know, here you have apple saying it's the privacy our users. >> adding the argument it could endanger people with iphones, as
7:05 am
>> the minute they create this, they say, it's going to get out and as a result, no one is going to be safe is what apple is saying. really interesting situauation. >> fascinating. thank you. now to the race for the white house. it is "your voice, your vote," just three days until the critical south carolina primary. the latest poll there has donald trump with a 16-point lead and abc's tom llamas has the very latest from charleston, south carolina. good morning, tom. >> reporter: amy, good morning other candidates are running out of time to catch trump. donald trump has had a war of words with his rivals, hillary clinton and are bernie sanders but now the president is personally getting involved. >> i continue to believe mr. trump will note president. and the reason is because i have a lot of faith in the american pele. >> reporter: president barack obama doubling down on his prediction that the world will
7:06 am
>> come on. saying trump's skills won't help him in the white house. >> it's not hosting a talk show or a reality show. it's not promotion. it's not marketing. it's hard. and a lot of people count on us getting it right. >> reporter: trump firing back a direct message. >> you're lucky i didn't run last time when romney ran because you would have been a one-term president. >> reporter: but the president's criticisms sound a lot like what the otr gop candidates are saying. >> when radicacal islami terrorists wage jid on the united states of ameca, the answer is not to tweet insults at them. >> reporter: do you think donald trump is somebody you woulfeel safe with protecting our country. >> well, i don't think donald has shown yet an understanding of our national security situation. he hasn't really exhibited any sort of in-depth knowledge about the issues confronting the country. >> reporter: and jeb bush saying trump's shotots at hisrother's administration over 9/11 is
7:07 am
>> no one envisioned 9/11. i don't care what donald trump says. the guy is a complete loser with his statements about this. >> reporter: and the jeb bush campaign making a different type statement on twitter tweeting the word "america" with this image of a new gun, bush's name etched on the barrel. but the campaign may have fired too fast. jeb apparently unaware of the tweet explaining the gun was a gift. >> the purpose was we went to a gun manufacturing facility where lots of jobs are created, high wage jobs and i received a gun and i was honored to have it. >> reporter: now trump's criticisms of president bush may have actual cost him votes here. because the governor here nikki haley who is very popular with republicans is expected to endorse someone but she says she's definitely not going to endorse trump. why? shshe says is embarrassing that someone would attack president bush on one of the worst days in american history. >> a lot of eyes on her with three days to go.
7:08 am
and the race is a dead heat. clinton, 48%, sanders, 47% and cecilia vega is here with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. those numbers show exactly what the clinton campaign is worried about, the race in nevada is neck and neck but so is that battle for black and latino voters as bernie sanders tries to gain ground, clinton is fighting back hard. let the courting begin. >> thank you, morehouse. >> reporter: overnight bernie sanders at a historically black atlanta college trying to make the case. >> together we are going to end the horrors of unarmed african-americans being shot and killed by police officers. >> reporter: and in south carolina, hoping to close the gap. >> when we talk abt inequality, it goes without saying that the african-american commununity is sfering even
7:09 am
>> reporter: with thpalmetto state's s democrat primary on the horizon this morning they're waging a heated battle for the same pri, the african-american vote. clinton on tuesday meeting with civil rights leaders including al sharpton. >> i'm looking forward to the conversation. >> repororter: theheading to harlem talking race relations and launching an all-out assault on republicans. clinton implying racism is behind the threat to block president obama's supreme court nomination. >> many republicans talk in coded racial language about take and losers. they demonize president obama and encourage the ugliest impulses of the paranoid fringe. this kind of hatred and bigotry has no place in our politics or our country. >> reporter: a sweeping speech that was nearly unraveled by a coughing fit lasting more than four minutes.
7:10 am
>> reporter: she did manage to t through that speech. the audience members cheering her on but here's what's at stake. the black vote is expected to make up more than half of the electorate in south carolina, george. that is why they are fighting so hard. >> cilia, thanks very much. let's talk about it with matth dowd and fox news contributor mary katharine ham. welcome to you both. matt, the democrats, nevada a dead heat. a few months ago hillary clinton had a 20-point lead and shows bernie sanders is starting to cut into her advantage on minority voters. >> she is keeping on moving the fire wall down the calendar. i think right now her argument has been iowa, new hampshire, preminantly white rural states. well, you're going to nevada which is a predominantly urbanized state. with a large la teet know populationnd african-american population. i think if she loses nevada, south carolina closes probably still difficult for bernie
7:11 am
race will keep adjusting as bernie sanders wins. >> it will go on for a long time. on the republican side mary kathryn, you have him holdinon to that big lead. in south carolina. what would it mean i if after basically declaring war on the leaders donald trump wins in south carolina which traditiolly goes with the winner of the nomination. >> i think it doesn't mean the end of the race certainly. he as you see with all of his polling he remains strong and support remains strong even when he makes mistakes but i think if cruz and rubio as we see in polling can finish a strong second and make an argument we will have the three-man race many thought we would have coming out of new w hampshirand that may focus people. >> matthew dowd, at the same time you have all these republican leaders even after he attacks president bush saying they will support trump if he is the nominee. >> i think they'll be in a difficult spot. i think if he wins south carolina and it becomes a three-man race that's good for donald trump because i think donald trump right n, his bottom is 35%.
7:12 am
into march 1st and probably wins most of the states on march 1st. how do you stop donald trump once he wins south carolina? >> that will be the question. thank you both. now to the battle over the supreme court, the late justice antonin scalia's seat draped in black as republicans plan to block president obama's plans to fill that spot. the president pushing back hard saying he will nominate someone and mary bruce has the latest. >> i intend to do my job between now and january 20th of 2017 and expect them to do their job, as well. >> reporter: president obama is doubling down saying the supreme court is no place for political games and disspellingumors about who he'll pick. . >> you shouldn't assume anything about the qualifications of the nominee other than they're going to be well qualified. >> reporter: but republicans insist they will block his nominee to replace justice antonin scalia no matter what. >> it is not fair to appoint for a president in their last year in office to appoint someone to a lifetime position.
7:13 am
at stake the powerful chairman of the senate judiciciary committee hasn't ruled it out. >> i would wait until the nominee is made before i would ma any decisions, in other words, take it a step at a time. >> reporter: both sides digging in their heels as the nation mourns the loss of a conservative legal giant. on friday, scalia's bobody will lie in repose, a public viewing in the great hall of the supreme cot. not far from whe he sat during his 30 years on the bench. that chair now cloaked in black. now, as for the funeral friends and family will gather saturday at the washington basilica. the burial, however, will be private. george. >> okay, mary, thanks very much. we move on to that extreme weather all over the country. record heat in the wesis heading east where the big thaw and heavy rain is melting snow as tornadoes tear through the south. rob is tracking it all. >> hey, george, good morning. what a wide-reaching dynamic storm this was as it wrestled

we'll be right back, everybody. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly ss major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. dodon't takeliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling,
7:51 am
while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleediding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. there are 16 fresh-picked oranges squeezed into each bottle of tropicana pure premium. and absolutely no space r added sugar, water, or preservatives. tropicana.

8:14 am
sense of purpose. >> and this is not something we hear many people admit. why is it so hard for so many of us to be open about those moments? >> well, it's stigma, and so often still in society there's a stigma against people who exprs extreme unhappiness or are suicidal or have a mental disorder or mental illness and there's a difference. she's s saying s can work on it. and people need to know that almost 50% of americans have a mental disorder, not mental illness, which means you can be dinosed with something so the point is if you're feeling something overwhelming and you feel like you want to hurt yourself or you feel extremely sad, talk to somebody about it because if ronda rousey can say it, anyone can. >> right, because you can have that situational moment, as well, that strong emotion. it was interesting, ronda said when she felt that darkness, she looked up and saw her boyfriend,
8:15 am
someone, anyone there with you in those times? >> it's important. it was a moment. it was a suicidal thought. if someone is actually suicicidal with a plan, that's an emergency. having a sense of support is extremely important. if you have a ligious affiliation, to talk to someone. and the key ing is to understand that you don't have to resolve it on your own. if you're a family member and you hear someone who is suicidal, get help. >> becse a lot of pple are in those moments and part of the reason why they feel so down, so sad, so suicidadal is because they're alone. who then do you reach out to? >> well, you have to break the silence. talk to your health care provider. if you're employed look for employ assistance or if you're a student, there are guidance counselors at universities and educate yourself about moods and find a retable source like the national institute of mental health or e mayo clinic to identify what different mood swings can mean and get help for yourself. >> and to know you are not alone. there is help. >> no, we have to break the silence and the stigma about what it means to have extreme mood swings. >> all right. dr. janet taylor, as always, thank you so much. >> thank you.
