out strategy with executive actions through a video he shared on social media. >> on regulation, i will formulate a roll for every one regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. so important. on national security, i will ask the department of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to develop a co comprehensive plan to protect america from sicyber attacks. on immigration, i will ask the department of labor to investigate all visa abuse programs that under cut the american worker. on ethics reform, as part of our plan to drain the swamp, we will impose a five-year ban on executives from becoming lobb lobbyists after they leave office and lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.
these are the steps we are taking to reform america. >> reporter: and one issue in the veo have in common, they do not require congress action. they are all things he can do on day one. like obamacare or building a wall on the southern border. >> that will take congress, no doubt. thank you. donald trump narrowing down the pick for treasury secretary. sources close to the transition say he is down two most men. steve mnuchin. he served as the finance chairman. he made it clear he wanted the treasury secretary post. jonathan gray runs the real estate arm blackstone. building up the holdings from china and latin america. both would be seen as political
n moderates. the treasury secretary is a cabinet position requiring senate confirmation. i say it is probably the most powerful financial position second to the fed chief. the fed chairman is the most powerful position in the world. this is someone who will work separately, but closely with the fed. it will be interesting to see how trump addresses the fed. one photo op with a possible cabinet pick is revealing. trump posing with kris kobach. he is under consideration to head a department. how do we know for sure? photos he is holding show his strategic plan. they detail the entry of potential terrorist entry. some are vetting illegal aliens
and ending all immigration of syrian refugees. and florida governor rick scott will not join the administration. he said he already has a great job and wants to spend the next two years getting things done for his state. he called the meeting with trump friendly. and the trump transition ste team is responding to the celebration by the alt-right. members gathered last weekend in washington for a hate-filled tribute to trump. listen to the leader of the group using nazi-type language. >> hail, trump. hail victory. hail our people. [ applause ] >> the trump team has responded to this video from the atlantic
writing quote president-elect has denounced racism of any kind and he was elected because he will be a leader for all americans. anchors from the nation's five biggest television networks sat down with president-elect trump on monday. the meeting was off the record. both sides agreeing not to discuss details, but a source tells cnn quote real progress was made on the issue of media access to trump. later today, the president-elect is set to meet with several reporters. >> among the plans of the web video, the one he mentioned on the campaign trail is the promise to pull the u.s. out of the tpp. the 12-nation trade deal among the pacific rim countries. trump is vowing to tear up that
deal saying it will cost americans jobs. >> i am going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership. a potential disaster for our country. i hope ste instead, we will have trade deals to bring industry back on american shores. >> donald trump's determination to abandon the tpp has other nations that signed on to the pact worried to say the least. joining us with the latest is andrew stevens live this morning in hong kong. andrew, the tpp was a way to compete with china in that region as far as trade goes. this has to be welcome news for beiji beijing. >> reporter: absolutely. there's been a lot of concern that the u.s. is now pulling out of the tpp. the new zealand prime minister said we want america in the region. we like america in the region. if they pull out of the tpp, that will leave a vacuum and it
will be filled by china. what the tpp did, boris, you can argue the pros and cons whether it is good or bad for american jobs. it did create an american-led level playing field in environmental standards and labor standards in the 12 countries. if they were in the tpp, they had to reach certain standards for expeporexport. that is all gone. china can step into the breach and lead by the sheer says of the economy with the next round in asia. that is not to say china will do bad negotiations. they believe in a multilateral trade platform. president-elect trump says as i s say, this is potentially dis disast disastrous for the u.s. what is more disturbing is not just pulling out of the tpp, but
if trump continues with other campaign promises and it calls china a currency manipulator, china will respond to that. that is where you get a trade war. that will be devastating. >> trump want to pursue bilateral trade deals. andrew stevens, thank you. that is rejection of the past 30 or 40 years of philosophy from both parties in washington. it is really a reversal of everything we know from the second half of the 20th century. it will be fascinating. this is what leaders are trying to get their heads around. do you take the campaign promises literally or is that a starting point and the conversation starts. >> part of a bigger negotiation. >> and the negotiation before the final deal is done. up next, a deadly school bus crash in chattanooga.

a chattanooga bus driver arrested for a deadly bus crash that killed at least six school children. the bus was carrying 35 kids all in kindergarten what it flipped over and slammed into a tree. 23 children had to be transported to the hospital. this tragic accident leaving the community just stunned. >> this has been a great tragedy for us. we suffered a great loss today. everyone in the community, this is one of the worst days we had in hamilton county. >> conditions were clear and dry at the time of the crash. the driver is 24-year-old john anthony walker. he has been charged with five counts of vehicle homicide,
reckless endangerment. a manhunt for the killer of a 20-year veteran of the san antonio police department ended with a capture of the suspect yesterday. the city's police chief believes it was a targeted killing. we get more from dan simon in san antonio. >> reporter: unbearable sad news ness here in san antonio. the police tell us they were able to quickly develop leads and have the suspect under surveillance. he was pulled over. this is a traffic stop in the vehicle. you had the suspect along with an adult female and child just 2 years old. the suspect was taken into custody without incident. >> this is the person whose image we saw on surveillance. this is also the person we believe is responsible for the cold and calculated murder of detective marconi. there are many facets of the
case which still need to be investigated. this investigation is by no means over. >> reporter: so while this active manhunt is over, we still don't know the motive. why the suspect fired on this particular police officer. was there a personal grievance or a grievance with the police department as a whole. that we don't know. as the mayor of san antonio said, at least the city can breathe a little easier that the suspect has been captured. boris and christine. >> dan simon, thank you. hundreds of workers at o'hare hartsfield-jackson international airport o'hare airport today set to strike a week from today in the fight for 15 movement to raise the minimum wage. organizers are expecting tens of thousands of people to participate. they want better working conditions and higher wages.
since the election, donald trump has said nothing about the u.s. military posture to the biggest rival in the far east. china. that mission was highlighted as the u.s. and chinese military in disaster relief efforts last week. that contrast sharply with the standoff in the two countries in the south china sea.
how will this change with the trump administration? let's bring in cnn's matt rivers. the trump campaign said part of the reason china kept pushing into the south china sea is obama did not stand up to him. the implication is he would. how is this being received there? >> reporter: well, china's leaders are just as curious as the rest of the world as what the trump administration plans to do when it crafts the policy toward china. when donald trump talked about china on the kpacampaign trail, was about the economics about all of this. the chinese economy heard the u.s. economy in the words of the president-elect. we heard him talk less about the military side. and so really in order to determine what he will do next, we have to look for clues. he did talk about the south china sea a little bit, but if
donald trump follows through with the rhetoric where he says put america first. if he focuses domestically, maybe he pulling back from the south china sea and doesn't engage as the obama administration did. that leaves china the ability to perhaps further its own goals of building up the artificial islands. you have to look at who the trump administration macy consit of. general flynn has been anti-china and one of the top defenders for another post. james mattis. so boris, we have a lot of speculation right now. there are a few clues here and there, but this is one of the big open-ended questions facing the trump administration as they are set to take power. >> and one question of many. that and the tpp. matt rivers from beijing, thank you. at least three people injured after a 6.9 magnitude
earthquake off the coast of japan. it triggered a three-foot tsunami at the fukushima plant. at this point, it caused no additional damage. thank goodness. the biggest wave 4.5 feet hit sendai to the north. tremors as far as tokyo. you see the lights in the bookstore swaying. tsunami warnings have since been lifted. residents are expected to feel aftershocks. and snow shovels are out in parts of the northeast here at home. more than a foot of snow fallen in some areas and more on the way. let's get to meteorologist pedram javaheri. >> boris and christine, good morning. snowshowers in place in the northeast. the cold air locked in place. albany, 30. syracuse, 30 degrees. light to moderate snowshowers as the lake-effect snow machine is offering in watertown and
binghamton. and cold air aloft over the great lakes. that energy sets up snow later on this morning. notice the winds into wednesday night which begin to shift. that's wonderful news if you have plans for thanksgiving. if you are across the midwest, another storm system moves in. travel plans on wednesday into chicago could have major delays across the region. generally on the minor side from st. louis to cincinnati. with the storms which could bring in snowshowers if parn paf the upper midwest. thank you, pedram. kanye west being hospitalized treated for ex-exhaustihaustion. his tour was canceled following

policy posting a web video for the plans for the first 100 days in office. political reporter sara murray has the latest from trump tower. >> reporter: good morning, boris and christine. the revolving door for the candidates for the potential trump cabinet. the meetings among the national security post. the other announcement we are looking out for is commerce secretary today. multiple sources say trpz has all b trump has settled for wilbur ross. now donald trump is avoiding the press and he is laying out strategy when it comes to executive actions through a video he shared on social media. >> on regulation, i will formulate a role which says for every one new regulations, two old must be eliminated. so important. on national security, i will ask
the department of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to develop a comprehensive plan to protect america's infrastructure from cyber attacks and all other form of attacks. on immigration, i will ask the department to review visa program that under cut the american worker. and as our plan to drain the squ swamp, a five-year ban from becoming lobbyists after they leave office. these are just a few of the steps we will take to reform washington and rebuild our middle class. >> reporter: one thread the initiatives have in common, they did not require congress to participate. these are all executive actions that donald trump could do on day one. that's the reason you are not seeing the bigger priorities like repealing obamacare or
building a wall on the southern b border. one photo op is especially revealing. trump posed with kris kobach. he is under consideration for homeland security. how do we know that for sure? photoing of the document he is holding say so. the papers headline the plan for proposals to quote bar the entry of potepntial terrorists. asking them about support for jihad and shria law and ending all immigration for syrian refugees. and after meeting on monday with the president-elect, governor scott says he has a great job and wants to spend the next two years getting things done for the state. he described the president-elect as energized and hard working. the trump transition team is responding to a disturbing celebration by some in the
alt-right. the members of the policy institute gathered for a hate-filhate hate-filled tribute for trump. >> hail trump. hail our people. hail our victory. [ applause ] >> here's the trump team's response to the video. president-elect trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind. he was elected to be a leader for every american. to think otherwise is a misrepresentati misrepresentation. and new details on trump's huge web of companies. a cnn analysis of the financial disclosures shows he has 150 companies worldwide. they have business deals in 25 countries. trump has a position in or
ownership in 564 companies. among the countries involved in, uae, turkey, qatar, saudi arabia and azerbaijan. trump downplaying the news on twitter last night, quote, prior to the election, it was well known i have properties all over the world. only the crooked media makes this a big deal. other news yesterday. top executives from the news anchors sat down with president-elect trump on monday. the meeting was off the record with both sides agreeing not to discuss details. real progress was made on the thorny issue of access to trump. he is scheduled to meet with the publisher of "the new york times." and the one mention he made most recently, the promise to pull out of the trans-pacific
partnership. that is the trade deal lowering trade deals among pacific rim countries except for china. this was a glowing trade power counter to china. trump vowed to tear up the deal saying it will cost americans their jobs. >> i'll issue notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership. a potential disaster for the country. instead, we will negotiate fair bilateral trade deals to bring jobs and industry back on american shores. >> trump's determine to abandon tpp has other nations signed on worried to say the least. joining us now is andrew stevens live in hong kong. andrew, they have been working on this for a long time. it has gone through many iterations. the idea here was this was a counter to growing influence of china in the region. this was a way to protect labor rights in some of the countries
so you don't have really cheap labor exploited to the detriment of american workers. a lot in here. it looks like it is all but dead. >> reporter: absolutely. it does. and don't forget. it is also getting rid of 18,000 tariffs. it opens up 11 markets for u.s. exports. it opens up further, i should say. many of the markets are already open to u.s. exports. allows american made goods to get deeper into the countries. we can't say at this stage whether as donald trump says that this is going to be a disaster for american jobs if it went through because there will also be an opening up of the u.s. economy to the other 11 countries. what we can say is that the tpp as it stood, christine, was as you said, a lot of it was about protecting labor rights and environmental issues. it did have its critics. it is a contentious policy and
there has been a lot of people in japan and australia and other countries expressed concerns about it. where it leaves us now and this deal is effectively dead. there is a vacuum as the prime minister of new zealand said in asia pacific in the trade economic policy. that vacuum is more than likely to be filled by china. china has said in response to the trump information that it wants to see a multilateral as in many countries involved in one big overarching trade deal. it doesn't want to see a fragmentation. that is what donald trump is talking about. the chinese said we want one big deal. how that one big deal looks with china in the driving seat is the question. >> it is fascinating to see what the trump cabinet looks like and who handles trade and who runs treasury. that is a clearly the trade
agenda of both major parties in the country has been turned upside down. we are rewriting the script here. it will be fascinating to see. andrew stevens, thank you. new developments overnight in a deadly school bus crash in tennessee. an arrest in the case. we have details next on "early start." introducing protein shots from 5-hour energy. protein shots from 5-hour energy are smooth and tasty, and still deliver 21 grams of protein with 100 calories. they're great for workouts, no matter how you work out... whether you're going for reps... or laps... or distance. you gotta try it... period. protein shots from 5-hour energy. great taste. 100 calories. 21 grams of protein.
a chattanooga bus driver arrested and charged overnight for a deadly school bus crash that killed at least six children. the bus was carrying 35 kids all in kindergarten through fifth grade when it flipped over and slammed into the tree and tore in half monday afternoon. 23 of the kids had to be transported to the hospital. the accident leaving the community stunned. >> this is a great tragedy for us. we suffered a great loss today. everyone in our community, this is one of the worst days we had
in hamilton county. >> conditions were clear and dry at the time of the crash. the bus driver has been identified as 24-year-old johnthony walker. he is charged with five counts of vehicle homicide. federal agents will arrive on the scene later this morning to investigate. a manhunt for the 20-year veteran of the san antonio police department ended with a capture of the suspect. the motive still not known. the police chief believes it was a targeted killing. let's get more from dan simon. >> reporter: boris and christine, unbearable sadness and relief that the suspect has been captured. identified as 31-year-old otis tyrone mccain. they had the suspect under surveillance. he was pulled over. this was a traffic stop inside the vehicle. you have the suspect along with an adult female and child just 2 years old.
the suspect was taken into custody without incident. >> this is the person whose image we saw on surveillance. this is also the person we believe is responsible for the cold and calculated murder of detective marconi. there are many facets of the case which still need to be investigated. this investigation is by no means over. >> reporter: so while this active manhunt is over, we still don't know the motive and why the suspect fired on the particular police officer. was there a personal grievance against the officer or a grievance against the police department as a whole. that we don't know. as the mayor of san antonio said, at least the city can breathe easier the suspect has been captured. boris. >> dan, thank you for that. hundreds of workers at o'hare airport are set to strike a week from today. the strike coincides with a national day of protest in the
fight for 15 movement to hike the minimum wage. demonstrations scheduled at two dozen airports and mcdonald's restaurants in more than 300 cities. organizers are expecting tens of thousands to participate. stocks rising to record highs. i'm telling you. the dow, s&p and nasdaq and russell 2 thour,000 setting rec. while your 401(k) is making money, you will save money at the dinner table. we will tell you how much it will cost to feed your family. that's next.
cooperative venture. that is a change from the tension in the south china sea. that raises the question how will the relationship change with the trump administration? we will bring in matt rivers with more. we are showing pictures of the man made islands in the south china sea. china is building fixed aircraft carriers, if you will. fixed military installations. it raised concerns of the neighbors. it is an important and pressing issue to balance with china. we know china often security, economic and human rights, all this stuff is one subject for china. how donald trump will take care of that remains to be seen, matt. >> reporter: that's absolutely right. the south china sea is one of the big hot zones. one of the tension zones in the world in terms of geopolitics. we have not heard much from
donald trump. post election and on the campaign trail. trump did not shy away from talking about china on the campaign trail. it was mainly rhetoric on the economy here. when it comes to the military, we didn't hear any specific policy proposals. that leads us to try to guess and read the tea leaves to see what the trump administration would do. you are hearing one he disengages from china. pulls back from the south china sea and let's china continue with that artificial island building. because he is focused on other areas and turning more attention to iran and isis. the flip side is look at the people he is putting around him. general flynn in the national security advisor. china is an enemy of the united states. one of the top candidates james mattis said the united states should pursue a strategy of counter balancing of china's
bullying in the south china sea. on the one hand, do you disengage or with the hawkish personalities in the trump administration push trump and his policies toward china toward a more strongly engaging one. that is a question we don't have the answer to yet. >> we know the chinese authorities have ammunition. if they don't like a direction or they don't like something the united states does, they withhold boeing contracts or sell u.s. treasuries. there are a lot of things they can threaten to do that can kow american authorities. we know that is something officials have worried about for years. thank you, matt rivers. at least three people injured after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of japan. it triggered a three-foot
tsunami at the fukushima plant. the biggest wave was 4.5 feet and hit sendai to the north. the tremors felt as far as tokyo. you see the video where the lights are moving and swaying. tsunami warnings have been lifted, but residents will continue to feel aftershocks. president obama's final medal of freedom ceremony is heavy on star power. recognizing significant contributions to the national interests of the u.s. or world peace. among the people, bruce springsteen and michael jordan and bill and melinda gates and tom hanks. robert de niro and ellen degeneres and vin scully and karim abdul jabbar. the dow and nasdaq and the s&p and russell 2,000 has never been higher.
that caps all four averages have hit record highs on the same day since 1999. that means companies of all sizes are getting a boost from the trump rally. against every forecast that stocks would fall with donald trump would be elected president were opposite. the best guess here is that the president will slash regulations and boost spending on struck i infrastructure and boost taxes. as for today, futures pointing solid today. you could see 19,000 in the diedow jones industrial average. my daily venti black iced tea is getting priceyer. the cost of cold drinks and baked goods is going up 10 cents to 30 cents per item. hot coffee and tea prices will not change. in july, starbucks raised prices
on espresso. as long as you are not serving starbucks, you will get a break at the thanksgiving table. the cost for ten people is below $50. it is the cheapest thanksgiving dinner since 2010. turkey prices are dropping after highs the past few years. pumpkin pie mix is cheaper. lots of products related are cheaper. miscellaneous items are cheaper this year. no word on the zin will alter the number. check out the money stream app. it is personal items for you. what is your choice? >> pumpkin pie is okay, but i like cheesecake. apple pie for me.
>> "early start" continues right now. >> the next president's plan of action. donald trump tells america what he'll do on day one in office. a disturbing display. nazi salutes to celebrate trump's election. this morning, team trump responds. and top candidates for the treasury secretary. welcome to "early start." i'm boris sanchez. >> i'm christine romans. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. nice to see you. new closed door transition meetings on the agenda at trump tower in new york before trump heads to florida for thanksgiving. the transition team hinting there may be new cabinet announcements today. monday passed without announcements. instead the focus on policy. here it is. the web video with an early look at placns for the first 100 day in office.
we have sara murray with the latest from trump tower. >> reporter: boris and christine, the revolving door continued to churn in candidates for a trump cabinet on monday. among the meetings was with congresswoman gapberd. the other announcement we are looking out for is commerce secretary. multiple sources say donald trump has all but settled on wilbur ross. it is unclear if we will get that announcement. while trump is mostly avoiding the press, he is laying out his strategy through a individuvide shared on social moo yaedia. >> for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. so national security, i will ask the department of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to develop a
comprehensive plan to protect america's vital infrastructure from cyber attacks and all other form of attacks. on immigration, i will direct the department of labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that under cut the american worker. on ethics reform, as part of our plan to drain the swamp, we will impose a five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after leaving the administration and lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. these are few of the steps to reform washington and rebuild the middle class. >> reporter: one thread the initiatives had,participate. these are all executive actions that trump could do on day one. that's the reasons you are not seeing the bigger priorities like repealing obamacare or building a wall. >> t
