in the formation of his new administration. >> many of us would love to be a fly on the wall as he sits down with former republican presidential nominee mitt romney who has come out hard against trump in the past few months. he's called him a con man and fraud and now romney is reportedly under consideration for secretary of state. >> let's not forget that trump also said that romney was not a smart man and questioned his mormonism. i best we'll let bygones be bygones. meantime, reactions are pouring in to several new jeff sessions as attorney general and retired general mike flynn for national security adviser. both dealing with accusations of bigotry. we have team coverage this morning, and we do begin with abc's david wright who is in bedminster township for us this morning. hi, david. >> reporter: good morning, paula and dan. this place is home to 1 of 17 golf clubs that donald trump owns around the world but this weekend it is the white house in waiting and it's here in this rural setting that trump will
a golf course under heavy guard, a private setting for this high stakes summit. the 2012 nominee and the 2016 winner haven't always been diplomatic about each other. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. >> he had his shot. he had his shot. he didn't like it when i said he choked like a dog. he choked like a dog. >> reporter: the idea that trump is now courting romney as a possible secretary of state is an early test for the dealmaker president. romney isn't the only candidate. there's also south carolina governor nikki haley. >> well, i won't pretend to have always been president-elect's biggest cheerleader.or i did vote for him and i was absolutely thrilled to see him win. >> reporter: and former new york mayor rudy giuliani who was trump's biggest cheerleader. but who now seems to be struggling to win the job he wants.
attorney general and congressman mike pompeo for cia director. both jobs offered and approved pending confirmation by the senate. general mike flynn will be national security adviser. no confirmation required. this weekend retreat at what used to be automaker john de lorean's country estate would be a much needed break from fifth avenue. last night the man leading the transition team took a break from the meetings to see the hit broadway show "hamilton." there were boos and some cheers for vice president-elect pence as well as this shoutout from the cast. >> vice president-elect pence, i see you walking out but i hope you will hear us just a few more moments. we, sir, we are the diverse america who are alarmed and anxious that y anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents or defend us and
but we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our american values and to work on behalf of all of us. >> reporter: the vice president-elect had already ducked out of the theater right after the show but he stood there in the hallway and heard the whole speech apparently. meanwhile, here in bedminster trump has a busy range of meetings today. in addition to romney he is meeting with general james mattis under consideration for secretary of de michele rea, she's the former d.c. schools chief under consideration for the department of education, paula. >> all right. but what a moment there on broadway last night. david, thank you. trump is facing fierce criticism after announcing his choices for attorney general and national security adviser, not to mention his chief strategist steve bannon who opened up in an explosive new interview about his vision for the future of america, and abc's gloria rivera is here with the backlash that team trump is already feeling. gloria, good morning. >> reporter: good morning,
election and speculation on who will fill out president-elect trump's administration continues to run rampant. his picks for those top three posts and that magazine interview prompting new backlash. this morning president-elect trump's supporters are defending his picks for key positions. three of them under fire for a history of racially charged comments. >> jeff sessions is one of the stalwart conservatives in the senate. he's also been a loyal ally to donald trump throughout this entire campaign. jeff sessions selected for attorney general served as a federal prosecutor before his decades long career on capitol hill and was unopposed in his last election, but claims of racism have followed the conservative who was accused of calling an african-american colleague in the u.s. attorney's office "boy." a charge he denied during this 1986 testimony to the u.s. senate which rejected his confirmation to a federal judgeship. >> i am not a racist.
still, the chairman of the congressional black caucus calling senator sessions' civil rights record appalling. lieutenant general michael flynn tapped for national security adviser gets high praise for his intelligence work. former cia director mike hayden complimenting flynn saying he has been incredibly successful in the fight against terrorism but he's also been criticized for recent comments tweeting that fear of muslims is rational in this august 2016 speech on islam. a malignant cancer. >> reporter: but trump's most controversial pick may be his chief white house strategist steve bannon. the former head of breitbart media has been vilified as a racist and an anti-semite. charges he denies. but bannon seems to boast about being scorned by his opponents telling "the hollywood reporter" that darkness is good telling the magazine, dick cheney, darth vader, satan,
instead he argues he is simply a nationalist or an economic nationalist. dan, paula. >> yeah, we're going to talk about steve bannon and much more as the broadcast continues. gloria, thank you. meanwhile, as trump deals with these swirling controversies over his picks for these top jobs, he's also moving to put an older controversy to rest. the president-elect has now agreed to settle several lawsuits from people who claim trump university was a fraud. the new york attorney general calling this a stunning reversal. here's abc's rebecca jarvis. >> this is actually a good one all around. >> reporter: this morning attorneys for president-elect donald trump have settled all three fraud cases against the now defunct trump university for $25 million and no admission of wrongdoing. >> everybody who was enrolled in this school and wants their money back will get over half their money back. >> reporter: new york attorney general eric sneiderman who brought one of the suits against
trump and a major victory for the more than 6,000 victims of his, quote, fraudulent university. while campaigning, trump vowed to never settle the claims. >> i could have settled it. i just choose to, in fact, when i ran they said why didn't you settle up the case. i don't want >> reporter: his attorneys have long defended the program saying it imparted valuable knowledge and a vast majority of former students were happy with personal interest and his personal beliefs aside and focus on the issues that are facing the country. >> reporter: the allegations of fraud involving trump university were set to make headlines. the trial scheduled to begin later this month before judge gonzalo curiel who trump criticized during his campaign alleging the u.s. born judge was biased because he is the son of mexican immigrants but this morning, it appears those cases will not go to trial. for "good morning america," rebecca jarvis, abc news, new
>> rebecca, thank you. for more on all this let's bring in bill kristol who is the editor of "the weekly standard" and is also an abc news contributor and joins us from washington. bill, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's start with this trump/romney meeting. there is a long history of political rivals making nice after these hard fought campaigns but romney really went pretty far, as we showed. he called trump a con man and a fraud. could he really join the cabinet after saying all of that? >> sure, sure, he could. i mean, i think he would want assurances as secretary of state i assume that's the job he would be interested in and might be offered he would be able to run his department, he would want to talk about some substantive foreign policy issues, he's not going to defend or articulate positions that he thinks are indefensible. but, you know, the media is being a little unfair here. i mean, on the one hand trump is criticized i think correctly in some cases for appointing loyalists who shouldn't perhaps be in the highest positions then he reaches out to mitt romney who is unquestionably qualified for
critic of trump who doesn't agree with trump on everything and it shows a kind of open-mindedness on trump's part honestly and i think rising to the job perhaps if he makes the offer, same with jim mattis, who i know, retired marine, four-star general, fantastic human being. i don't know that he wants to be secretary of defense. there would have to be a waiver because he's a recent general. if he would advise him i would feel better about a president trump being advised by mitt romney and jim mattis. so, you know, it's a little -- we can all laugh about it and show the clips of romney criticizing trump and remind people that mattis was thinking about running as an independent. i have to applaud him for being more open-minded or broad-handed than i expected. >> you have nikki haley and ted cruz going from his hit list to his hot list. but i want to ask you about the five high-profile job appointments since the election. all white men. and three of them we're talking about sessions, bannon and flynn have been accused of bigotry so, if a member of a minority community, if you're a member of the minority community and you're concerned about a trump presidency, how should you feel about this administration and
>> i think you should keep an open mind, honestly. t i don't know that -- i don't approve of things bannon has said. i'm not sure i would make flynn my national security adviser. i respect jeff sessions and i think he's getting a bit of a bum rap here but let's see. sessions will testify before the senate in his confirmation. flynn and bannon are in staff positions. i myself think staffers should probably not be giving interviews and speeches as much. let the president be the president and let the cabinet of the administration so i would if -- i mean, i am a trump skeptic obviously but if i were a minority trump skeptic, i would distrust but verify. be very skeptical but he is the president-elect, let's see what he does and see what his policies are and see what he says as president. and maybe some of his aides will move on from where they were a few months or years ago. >> you've paid a price for being a trump skeptic. steve bannon, the controversial
has gone after you through breitbart quite aggressively. what do you make of the fact that bannon now appears to hold an enormous amount of sway with the incoming president? >> well, bannon thought the kind of conservatism that i had been part of for decades was old fashioned and too timid and not sort of nationalist enough. some of those are legitimate policy differences. sometimes i think he published stuff at breitbart that was unnecessarily not just personal but sort of vitriolic and so forth bu counsel to the president of the united states but, again, it's really going to be what donald trump does and says, not what steve bannon does and says. >> bill kristol, fascinating to watch you walk this line this morning. we'll check back with you throughout this administration. thank you very much. and, paula, over to you. >> thank you, dan. thanks, bill. moving to the fiery scene of a small plane crash. the plane slamming into a parking lot in northeast nevada
that set off explosions. witnesses capturing these visuals you're seeing. all four people on board were lost. the faa is involved and our eva pilgrim is here with more. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, paula. a fiery plane crash just moments after takeoff into that parking lot across from the airport. this morning we are learning this was a medical transport plane with three crew members and a patient on board. overnight the dramatic aftermath of a fiery plane crash caught on camera. >> we have an explosion at the involving an airplane, ammunition on board. >> reporter: watch as this massive fireball engulfs surrounding cars as the medical transport plane plummeted into a parking lot in nevada. the university hospital reporting a heart patient was on board. >> i heard a bang and then saw the flames. >> reporter: the inferno, setting off explosions as witnesses scramble to find a way to put out the growing flames. firefighters arriving on scene
and the surrounding vehicles gutted by the intense fire. an faa official telling abc news that the crash is under investigation this morning saying unknown circumstances caused the plane to crash just one mile from the elko airport. american med flight which owns the plane saying it's devastated and it is cooperating with authorities. the fire chief saying there isn't much left of the plane. the ntsb is also investigating this crash. >> so tragic. thanks, eva. >> the video was harrowing. eva, thank you. let's go to the breaking weather news now and a deadly blizzard slamming the upper midwest. whiteout conditions leading to more than 400 crashes, all that weather is now moving east, the forecast from rob in a moment but first let's get it out to abc's phillip mena who is in sioux falls, south dakota, where people have been warned to stay off the roads. phillip, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan, paula, good morning. that's right. yeah, that snowstorm that is now pummeling the upper midwest is no longer here, but here's the
ice, it is rock hard, and it is coating the roads here making them slick and extremely dangerous. overnight near whiteout conditions blanketing the upper midwest. plows working to clear the roads. on highways and interstates blizzard conditions making it nearly impossible to see. big rigs struggling to gain traction overturning on the side of the road. >> if it gets any worse than this that'll be it for me. >> reporter: drivers pelted by snow and ice. the minnesota state patrol responding to over 440 crashes with at least three deaths so far. winds gusting 50 to 70 miles per hour. on lake superior a lone surfer braving the rough waters trying to catch a perfect wave. >> surfing would be your best bet. if you're wearing the right gear it's totally comfortable. >> reporter: 10 to 18 inches falling in northern minnesota. >> the wind is really, really bad. >> reporter: residents now digging out.
i actually call this place minnesnowta. >> reporter: well, it has been uncommonly warm this fall and it's not typical to have the first snowstorm of the season hit so close to thanksgiving, but now that it's here, it's hitting hard. dan, paula. >> stay warm, phillip. we all want to know where this storm is headed now so let's send things over to rob. hi, rob. >> hi, paula. to echo what phillip just said a full on blizzard for parts of the upper midwest and it will only strengthen as it traverses the great lakes. the back side, a lot of snow with this and especially as that cold air gets over those warm great lakes. lake-effect snow machine begins cranking today on all lakes and upstate new york especially western new york. lake-effect snow warnings posted through tomorrow and in through monday, as well. but look at the advisories all the way down into the south. big-time wind and cold. everybody is going to get a piece of this. not good for the fire situation there and here's the heavy snow across parts of upstate new

turkey. i think you are. the "game of thrones" star tapped for a role in a "star wars" spin-off. that's straight ahead in "pop news" with diane. i work 'round the clock. i want my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba?. ? tresiba? ready ? tresiba? is a once-daily, long-acting insulin that lasts even longer than 24 hours. i want to trim my a1c. ? tresiba? ready ? tresiba? provides powerful a1c reduction.
when my schedule changes... i want something that delivers. ? tresiba? ready ? i can take tresiba? any time of day. so if i miss or delay a dose, i take it when i remember, as long as there's at least 8 hours between doses. once in use, it lasts 8 weeks without refrigeration... twice as long as lantus?, which lasts 4 weeks. tresiba? is used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. don't use tresiba? to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. don't reuse needles. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause dizziness, sweating, confusion, and headache. check your blood sugar. low blood sugar can be serious and may be life-threatening. injection site reactions may occur. tell your doctor about all medicines you take and all your medical conditions. taking tzds with insulins, like tresiba?, may cause serious side effects like heart failure. your insulin dose shouldn't be changed without asking your doctor. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing... fast heartbeat, extreme drowsiness,

i am as i've already admitted mildly obsessed with racking up frequent flier miles on my credit card. >> how many do you have? >> a lot. i've been hoarding them. >> what happens if they just disappear into thin air? well, it happened to one man and when he ran into turbulence trying to get them back, he turned to the abc news fixer. ? don sincell sa don sincell says he has the be newspaper in tiny oakland, maryland. to pay the bills he uses a business credit card from barclay card that earns miles allowing don and his wife susie to take some pretty cool trips. >> and all made possible by those cards and those points. >> reporter: a great perk until it all got tripped up. >> something was definitely wrong. >> reporter: don was still spending but his american
