1:04 am
apiece the democrats. this deal is being pushed aggressively by john boehner because he wants to clean the barn up before his successor assumes the speakership later this week. the question is how will house republicans in the rank and file respond to this? right now there are mixed reviews out monday night. the question is what will happen on the floor on wednesday? we don't know the answer to that yet. guys, the betting is house republicans will pass this bill and it will pass the house. likely pass the senate and the president may have a major fiscal deal on john boehner's final days in office. >> all right. manu. donald trump will be in iowa for a rally in sioux city. he says he has work to do in
1:05 am

1:10 am
freedom of navigation in international waters. the point of freedom of navigation in international waters, it is international waters and you don't need to consult with anybody. >> reporter: war ships with deployed from here to the south china sea, but to the north china sea where they are in a dispute with japan. the south china sea is more important, christine, because not only militarily could china set up control of the area, but trillions of dollars of international trade moving through. the south china sea is the economic lifeline to japan which is the united states number one ally in asia although president jinping had a successful visit this fall. abe was there this spring. >> clearly a very important relationship with united states and china with tensions around
