out for the new iphone x. i'm going to try to talk to them by running down the street live from our studio and back in time for the polka. they're excited. we're taking the show on the road on this friday, november 3rd. from abc news, this is "world news now." ♪ takin' it to the streets ♪ takin' it to the streets >> this might be one of those epic failures. >> what else do we do better on "world news now" than epic failures? >> at least it's consistent. >> this is our schtick. this is where we shine. >> this is really where we shine. the apple store by the way is a couple blocks down here. >> it's a little more than a couple blocks, actually. >> yeah. i literally have like three minutes to get from here to there and back in time to polka. >> do you have your sneakers on? >> no. >> you're doing this in shoes? >> i'm doing this in shoes. >> the high heels? are you going to wear the high heels? >> we'll get to that. we'll see if it's a success.
3:02 am
a lot of people in washington, in the meantime, are hoping for some success with taxes. >> we're going to start with this sweeping tax overhaul bill drawn up by house republicans and the big push to get it to the president's desk by christmas. >> so president trump joined republican lawmakers to show off the postcard they say americans will be had able to file their simplified taxes on. they're vowing that the $1.5 trillion tax cut plan will deliver big benefits to corporations and the middle class. >> but some republicans aren't so convinced and democrats are calling this a bonanza for the wealthy. abc's la if na zak has the details. >> reporter: together with the president, house republicans celebrated the act, saying many americans will be able to file their taxes on a postcard. >> it will be the biggest tax reduction in the history of our country. >> reporter: among the major changes, the corporate tax rate will be slashed from 35% to 20%. the standard deduction for middle class families will roughly double from $12,000 to $24,000 for married couples.
3:03 am
and the child tax credit will increase from $1,000 to $1,600. >> with this plan, the typical family of four will save $1,182 a year on their taxes. >> reporter: but there are ways that americans may be paying more in taxes. mortgage interest deduction on future home purchases will be capped at $500,000. and state and local tax deductions will be eliminated and property tax deductions capped at $10,000, a blow to families living in high tax areas. that last point and the price tag on the cuts have some republicans expressing reservations. i think over ten years, we're looking at $1.5 trillion, roughly. but that's something we have to get our arms around. >> democrats say they're skeptical of a sweeping overhaul behind closed doors. >> they're ashamed of this bill. the republicans know the more this bill is exposed out there the less people like it. >> reporter: now the last time tax reform happened, it was a bipartisan effort that took
3:04 am
about two years. but president trump wants this one to happen in about two months, saying he hopes to deliver it as a quote, big, beautiful christmas present. kendis, diane? >> republicans are saying this is a complete redesign of the tax code. the president showed off this postcard, saying nine out of ten americans will be able to file their tax returns on a postcard-style system. and one of the reasons for the simplification is we're going from four -- to two four tax brackets, rather, instead of seven. >> it sounds and looks simple enough. whether or not they'll be able to pass it within the next two months as opposed to use years as lana was referring to, that's another question. and many people are thinking the longer it hangs out there, the more no votes they will get against it. some republicans are already saying they are definitely against it already. >> tax overhauls are very difficult to pass in general. >> yes, yes. >> the republicans have had their work cut out for them on this one, for sure. but always possible.
3:05 am
>> we'll see how it plays out. in the meantime, also in washington, the attorney general jeff sessions is coming under fire yet again, facing new scrutiny over what he may have known about any ties between russia and the trump campaign. >> sessions earlier had testified that he had no knowledge of any contacts like this, but that is now in dispute. documents released this week show campaign adviser george papadopoulos told the special counsel's office that he offered to set up a meeting between russian president vladimir putin and then candidate donald trump. >> sessions was in the meeting at the time. another aide said sessions shut down the idea. but lawmakers want him to clarify why he failed to reveal that information while he was under oath. and after calling the u.s. justice system a joke, president trump is backing off his threat to send the new york bike path suspected attacker to military prison at guantanamo bay. the president now says the process takes much longer than the federal court system. instead, he is calling for the death penalty. >> attorney general jeff sessions says when it comes to terror suspects, the administration is open to all options.
3:06 am
>> terrorists should know this. this administration will use all lawful tools at our disposal, including prosecution in article iii courts or at guantanamo bay. >> critics say the president's death penalty comment could taint the jury pool and allow defense lawyers to argue their client can't get a fair trial. in the meantime, a somber moment in new york overnight as the eight people who were killed in that attack were remembered at a memorial march and candlelight vigil. dozens of people marched on the bike path where the incident took place. ending up about a mile away from where the suspect was taken into custody. five of those killed you see there were from argentina. this young woman, a mother of two, and the two american victims were also remembered. one a software engineer and a master's degree student. concrete barricades are going up along the path to keep cars away from bikers and
3:07 am
joggers. new york city's department of transportation says it is installing the barriers in 57 different spots along that path which runs on manhattan's west side along the hudson river. abc news has learned that moments before the attack, the suspect made a phone call to a friend. law enforcement sources say that call is what triggered a search for that friend on wednesday. he, however, is not considered a suspect. and the president is involved in a new twitter scandal, but it actually doesn't have anything to do with anything he wrote on twitter specifically. >> okay. so this is a different one. after a morning of tweeting about the russia with scandal and other topics, his account vanished. around 7:00 p.m., visitors to @realdonaldtrump, sorry, that page does not exist. so what happened? >> it turns out, it was all due to one twitter staffer. through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee's last day. we are conducting a full
3:08 am
internal review. so essentially, they had this person who had their last day of work and they decided this is the way they're going down in glory, they're going to disconnect the president's twitter account. >> so that guy or person is a hero to many people. other people are -- >> and an enemy to many others, right? >> also, what i found completely disalarming is that that is how quickly we can disappear from twitter, just one person. poof. >> it evoked this image of a person tripping over a cord. who knew this was that easy to do. >> just unplug it, yeah. our twitter life is fleeting. >> is there a button somewhere that just -- off, your account goes off, just like that. all right, coming up, the explosive scene on a college campus, a student now in custody after a device suddenly caught fire, forcing nearby evacuations. >> wow. and the new iphone officially for sale.
3:09 am
i am going to see if i can get a better look right now, actually. >> ooh. >> so, yeah. >> that's it? >> that's it. >> you're gone. >> my earpiece. >> so kendis is heading out. he's going to go down the street. we're going to send him running. he's going to check out some of the folks camped out in front of the apple store. >> all right. i'm going. >> good luck to you. >> this is my running form. oh! i tripped. >> oh, boy. we're already off to a rough start here. good luck, buddy. we'll be right back. . we'll be right back. good luck, buddy. we'll be right back.

this morning on "world news now," what did sessions know? the russian investigation finds its focus back on the attorney general, with the question of whether he lied to congress about the trump campaign's alleged involvement with russia. and breaking right now, bullets flying at a starbucks, several people hit. we have the very latest ahead. and new this half hour, the president embarks on a very big overseas trip to asia. >> but his daughter ivanka is already there. see what special measures japan has taken to keep her safe. and as if the world series wasn't enough, mr. and mrs. kate upton are planning to top that this weekend. details if in "the skinny" on this friday, november 3rd. from abc news, this is world news now. >> mr. and mrs. kate upton, huh?
3:31 am
>> mr. and mrs. kate upton. >> i didn't think justin varlander agreed to that. i was not aware. >> do you think she got a prenup? who gets a prenup in that situation? the guy who just got a world series ring? >> you're so romantic. we have a new world series engagement. wedding plans in effect for kate upton and justin varlander and all you can talk about is a pre-nup. >> love. >> kendis gibson, everybody. we're going to start this half hour on what's happening in d.c. and the russia investigation. once again, the attorney general is back in the focus in this because there are many in congress who are asking him to return there to be questioned again. >> that's right. this is happening after court documents released by the special counsel show that he was in the room when campaign adviser george papadopoulos offered to set up a meeting between then candidate trump and president putin. sessions did not disclose that discussion when he was asked about russian contacts under
3:32 am
oath. >> i have never met with or had any conversations with any russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the united states. further, i have no knowledge of any such conversations by any one connected to the trump campaign. >> another campaign adviser says sessions immediately rejected the idea of a meeting with putin, so lawmakers want to know why sessions failed to recall that conversation. >> meanwhile, former tux campaigner carter page just testified before congress and reportedly told lawmakers that last year he told sessions about an upcoming trip to russia. >> and president trump's former campaign chairman remains house arrest. after facing a federal judge in washington. >> paul manafort was indicted this week on charges that included money laundering and conspiracy. yesterday his attorney tried to
3:33 am
explain why his client applied for ten passports. here's abc's pierre thomas. >> reporter: paul manafort and his former business partner, richard gates, fighting the prosecutors who made them prisoners in their own home. >> mr. gates, how do you respond to the charges, with sir? >> reporter: the tense hearing starting with the judge chastising attorneys for this moment outside the courthouse on the day of the indictment. >> president donald trump was correct. there is no evidence that mr. manafort or the trump campaign colluded with the russian government. >> reporter: judge amy berman jackson sternly telling attorneys to stop talking on the courthouse steps and warning that this is a criminal trial, it's not a public relations campaign. prosecutors arguing both men pose a flight risk and should remain under house arrest, laying out their case in bluntly-worded court documents. in the last ten years, manafort has submitted ten passport applications. he currently has three passports. he recently obtained a new cell phone and e-mail account under
3:34 am
alliaces he used in china, ecuador and mexico. gates had 55 bank accounts. manafort's attorney accused the prosecutors of overreaching, saying it's not unusual for someone traveling overseas to have multiple passports. also former foreign policy adviser, george pap done husband, quarting with federal authorities after engaging with the russians during the campaign and now a fourth man is making news. sam clovis, formerly a white house adviser, is withdrawing his fame for consideration for department of agriculture. it was clovis who allegedly encouraged papadopoulos to continue talking with the russians, writing in an e-mail "great work." >> our thanks to pierre thomas there in washington. and sam clovis said the political climate makes it actually impossible for him to go ahead as the appointee and do the job. the president was already under fire for naming clovis the chief scientist because he's not actually a scientist. all right. a new poll reveals what
3:35 am
might be some alarming results about the investigation. 58% approve of robert mueller's handling of the russian investigation. and 68% approve of the charges being filed against paul manafort and his associate. the abc news/"washington post" poll finds 49% of americans think it's likely president trump broke the law in connection with the possible russian attempts to influence the election. >> and the former leader of the democratic national committee is reviving a controversy surrounding hillary clinton. in her new book, donna brazile claims that the committee was rigged in hillary clinton's favor because her campaign was largely financing the party early in the primary season. >> now, brazile says the arrangement wasn't illegal, but it compromised the party's integrity. president trump responded, calling it real collusion, dishonesty and a major violation
3:36 am
of campaign finance laws. and house republicans are aiming to vote on their new tax plan by thanksgiving. president trump helped roll out the plan, holding up postcards that republicans say most americans will be able to use to file their tax returns. he even kissed one of those postcards to make the point. the plan cuts the number of tax brackets from seven to four. a family making up to $90,000 would pay 12%. up to $260,000, 25%. up to $1 million pays 35% and the wealthiest americans would still pay the same rate as they do now at 39.6%. the bill doubles the standard deduction, making it $24,000 for married couples, but adds big breaks for the rich, including repealing the estate tax after six years. democrats call the plan a give away to the wealthy and the powerful. in just a few hours, president trump leaves on a 12-day trip to asia. on his way there, he will stop in hawaii for a military briefing and a visit to the uss memorial in pearl harbor.
3:37 am
he will make stops in japan, china, vietnam and the philippines. he will have his first in-person meeting with the controversial president of the philippines. and the president's daughter, ivanka trump, arrived if in japan ahead of her father. she met with japan's prime minister and addressed a meeting on women's issues last night. japan's police created a special all-female unit guard for her. and the first lady during their visit. the unit's commander said their outfits tried for a more cultivated look to suit the occasion. a propaganda arm for isis is claiming responsibility for tuesday's terror attack in new york city, calling the suspect a soldier of the caliphate. >> the truck rampage left eight people dead and more than a dozen injured along a popular jogging and biking path on the west side of manhattan. abc's maggie rulli has the
3:38 am
latest on the investigation. >> reporter: new yorkers determined to take back their city. >> new york is stronger than something like this. >> reporter: walked down the same route that just days earlier had been turned into a path of destruction. this video shows some of the victims of that attack just before terror struck. a group of friends from argentina, smiling. around the same time, across the river in new jersey, prosecutors say 29-year-old sayfullo saipov was getting ready to rent a truck from home depot. he's now confessed he used that truck to kill as many people as possible in the name of isis. saipov moved to the u.s. from uzbekistan in 2010 and was currently living in paterson, new jersey, with his wife and three children. one neighbor took this photo in front of saipov's building on october 22nd. in it, you see a home depot truck. prosecutors say he used it to do a dry run of his attack. >> same truck, same model. >> reporter: now questions of a greater threat. saipov has helped more than 23 other uzbeks come to the u.s., including two men suspected of terror ties. >> one of the things
3:39 am
investigators will look at after this incident is whether there is any type of network or cell that's operating in this country from uzbekistan. >> reporter: new york city remains shaken from tuesday's attack. >> it really does hit, literally close to home. it could have been me. >> reporter: and while many victims are still in the hospital, one student who was injured made a point to get back to school, saying he still wanted to get 100% attendance. the city started putting up concrete barriers here along the bike path at the west side highway. 57 are set to get up eventually blocking entrances like the one behind me trying to prevent a repeat of the halloween terror attack. and police in chicago say a gunman opened fire in an uptown starbucks, killing one man and injuring another as well as a 12-year-old boy. investigators say the man who was killed may have been involved in a drug deal with the suspect outside of that starbucks when something went wrong.
3:40 am
now it's unclear if the injured victims have any connection to the shooter or those killed. doctors treating them say they are both in serious but stable condition. and more discipline may be coming for members of a miami firehouse accused of racially harassing a black colleague. six firefighters, including the former fire chief's son have been fired. they are accused of hanging a noose over the picture of a black lieutenant's family. lewd images were drawn on that photo. fire other firefighters may be suspended or demoted. so the this is a strange one. when you have a business that can lose track of a hippo, it's probably time to reassess your entire security. >> a whole hippo missing. here's the video. this comes from a safari park near tel aviv. this video's not in slow motion, by the way. that's the actual speed with which the hippo just walks his way right out of a security gate. the whole thing went down on wednesday evening.
3:41 am
>> about three minutes later, the hippo walked back in through that same security gate. we didn't say they were very bright animals. the safari says its board members are conducting an investigation into it. >> he was just having a little fun. he was just testing. maybe that's their security method. they just know it's so pleasant in the zoo that they'll just come back. >> yeah. not a bright hippo. >> freedom! okay. that's enough. >> that was nice. that was nice. i've had enough. coming up, the new developments in the story we've been following out of georgia, the little boy denied an organ transplant because of his father's criminal record. the family is now speaking out. and later in "the skinny," oprah does it again. we're taking a look at some of her favorite things. you're watching "world news now." now." watching "world news now." i'm only in my 60's. i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.
