each other, they were connected, they could hear each other but they've never seen each other. >> and another thing for me is sanjay is such a unique blessing in this business. he is a neurosurgeon. he gives you insight and access into stories you would never get. i could never cover that the way sanjay just did and we're all better for it. what an amazing story, especially so close to thanksgiving. >> i'm sure when sanjay comes in next you won't make fun of him for his suit or any other things you normally make fun of him about because you respect him. >> i've always respected him. i don't like him personally. >> i understand. we're following a lot of news. what do you say? let's get to it. >> i will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of american energy. >> he proves that he understands america. >> truly great and talented men and women will soon be part of our government. >> senior advisor is a nazi.
>> hail trump, hail our people, hail victory. >> he repeatedly denounced racism. >> multiple children lost their lives today in this tragic incident. >> school bus driver was arrested and charged with vooek cue lar whom -- vehicular homicide. >> this has been one of the worst days we've had in hamilton county. >> announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo and allison kim mer rot at that. it's 8:00 in the east. president-elect donald trump outlining his plans for the first 100 days in an online video as speculation intensifies this morning about who will fill the remaining cabinet positions in his administration. >> brand-new cnn/orc poll gives us a snapshot into how americans are feeling two weeks after the election. one word, divided. you have a narrow majority of americans, 53% believing trump will do a good job as commander in chief. >> americans are also split on trump's handling of the
presidential transition so far. 46% say they approve, 45% disappro disapprove. only 1/ have a lot of confidence for trump's picks in his top appointments. >> numbers are the same when it comes to confidence in trump's ability to provide leadership. really contextually historically low compared to other modern day presidents before they took office. there's a lot of news about the transition and some crimes around this country. let's begin our coverage with cnn's jason carroll at the new white house annex at trump towers. >> reporter: two weeks and still no press conference from trump. in comparison president-elect obama did his three days after the election. even so, trump did release that video that you mentioned outlining what he's going to do in his first 100 days in office. all of this is speculation continues to swirl over who's going to run his cabinet. trump tweeting out just this morning that he's going to have what he called great meetings with people who could be running
this country, he says, for the next eight years. president-elect donald trump outlining what he intends to accomplish during his first 100 days in office, including a pledge to create jobs. >> on trade, i am going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership. i will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of american energy including shale energy and clean coal creating many millions of high paying jobs. >> reporter: and end corruption in washington. >> as part of our plan to drain the swamp we will impose a five year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave the administration and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. >> reporter: but in a 2:30 video trump steering clear of some of his biggest campaign ms pros, building a wall, repealing
obamacare, placing a ban on muslims entering the united states and no mention of deportations. >> on immigration, i will direct the department of labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the american worker. >> reporter: this as trump towns parade cabinet and senior staff hopefuls past cameras again. democratic congresswoman tulsey gabbert slipping past cameras to meet with trump. she's the second democrat trump has spoken with. she's under consideration for top jobs at the defense department, state department and united nations. trump also taking time to meet with executives and anchors from five television networks including cnn to address concerns about access. >> it is an off-the-record meeting. very cordial. very productive. congenial and very candid and honest. >> reporter: meanwhile, trump's team on the defensive.
urging him to denounce the alt right as they were caught on video cheering the president-elect in washington. >> hail trump, hail our people, hail victory. >> reporter: and capitalizing on trump's make america great again slogan. >> for us as europeans, it is only normal again when we are great again. >> reporter: racism and anti-semitism on full display. audience members giving a nazi salute. without denouncing the alt right by name, trump's transition team said in a statement, president-elect trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind and he was elected because he will be a leader for every american. and that statement not satisfying trump's critics who are unhappy and concerned about his choice of chief strategist steve bannon. steve bannon, as you know, chris, and alisyn, the founder of breitbart and bannon made it very clear that breitbart was,
in part, a platform for the alt right. in a separate situation trump, as you know, has had this very tense relationship with the press. part of the reason he had the meeting with media executives and anchors, and he continues to tweet about problems that he's been having with the "new york times." three tweets so far this morning about an interview he was supposed to have with "the times" and apparently not happening now. quote, i canceled today's meeting with failing ""new york times." not nice. two tweets criticizing "the times." not going to stop soon. >> thank you for all of that. let's discuss it with our panel. we have richard quest, cnn-i, jackie kucinich, and matt lewis. let's start with what donald trump has announced that he wants to do in his first 100 days. matt, we'll pull this up on the screen for everybody. he wants to withdraw from
t.p.p., we knew that from the campaign. negotiate bilateral trade deals. slash restrictions on domestic energy production. cut two old regulations for every new one created. national security he has a plan to create infrastructure. immigration, investigate abuses from the visa program. that's quite different than build a wall or deport 12 million people or even 2 million people. ethics reforms he says five-year ban on lobbying for top officials. that increases the time and a lifetime ban for top officials lobbying on behalf of foreign governments. you don't hear, again, the wall, the deportation. you don't hear anything about obamacare. what do you make of the first 100 days? >> most of these things are things he can do on day one. the second is he gets around to the wall on day two. most of these are things he could actually basically do via unilaterally on day one. most of them are very consistent with what he ran on. these are nationalist, populus
policies that would benefit sort of the working class guys in michigan or ohio. that will make him happy. >> in terms of the wall, appealing obamacare and the deportation, you don't see this as he's pivoting away, you see that as a later date? >> day two. >> he also needs congress for those things. he needs congress for the foreign lobbyist -- lobby for a foreign government. that doesn't really have any heft without congress making it law. you can just -- they can still do it. >> brother quest, i want you to take on this agenda in general, but one of the things that you put out there i was reading about t.p.p. this was supposed to aglomerate that entire region, 11 to 14 economies however you put it. if the u.s. pulls out, there ace the speculation china will step in. >> china's already there. it's got the rcep, 16 nations. it was china's response to t.p.p. now, you've already got the japanese prime minister saying
without the u.s., t.p.p. cannot be renegotiated. renegotiation is impossible. he described it as meaningless. if the u.s. pulls out of t.p.p., it's dead, it's gone, it's over. china is in the perfect position for rcep, the regional economic cooperation program or whatever and that's got 16. look, i was in asia last week. i was in singapore, hong kong and malaysia. all areas, particularly obviously singapore, malaysia, where governments exerted huge political capitol. they are furious. >> how does this hurt the u.s.? >> geo politically it creates a pivot, but not the pivot president obama wants. it creates a pivot to make the u.s. less relevant. the u.s. with its $16 trillion economy is always going to be of crucial importance, but as you build regional alliances and
increase trade, suddenly china is a much bigger player than it was as a result. >> in theory, this would have been the case if hillary clinton was the president too. she said she would not have supported t.p.p. >> she would have finagled something. >> in theory if we're looking at campaign promises. >> it's not just t.p.p. the other line he said in this is he will forge bilateral relationships. that's a knee to the groin to the whole multi-lateral world trade organization, these big trade deals. the europeans can say good-bye to their deal. this is going to be donald trump individually picking off individual countries now and saying, we'll do a deal here, we'll do a deal there. this is what you get, this is what we get. >> richard, we want to ask you about a tweet that donald trump sent out last night. you're rubbing your head in advance of a migraine. >> i'm not being rude. i've got the tweet. >> we have it, many people would like to see nigel ferage to
represent great britain. he would do a great job. your thoughts? >> imagine the united kingdomin hillary clinton, put them in your cabinet. we want you to do that. that's the equivalent. >> isn't he speaking to the popular mandate that came out of the brexit vote and that he was representative of to what he believes he pulls off. >> i'm sure he is, but it's pure, unadulterated mischief making to send that sort of tweet out. >> so -- and you see this as some type of window into what trump's disposition will be abroad, that is medaling more than bridge building? >> i wouldn't say meddling, mischief making. >> what's the difference? just because you pronounce it with that beautiful accent doesn't mean it resonates? didn't sound like that when the nuns used to accuse me of it.
>> i think that's more information than we need. look, at the end of the day he is -- he's going to build a relationship to brittain. brittain wants him more than he needs them. he then goes and says, your worst enemy is nigel farage, appoint him to washington. >> he has said how much he likes donald trump and how much he supports him and how much he considers this a victory, you know, on both their behalves. this is donald trump being vintage donald trump. you support me, you put out a statement saying what a victor i am. i say i like you. >> yeah. look. it makes sense. what happened with donald trump here in america i do think is part of an international movement. you see it in france, great britain with the brexit zbloet his guy bannon reportedly reached out to la pen to try to work together. >> i think they were ahead of the curve for better or worse in seeing that this is an international movement towards nationalism and populism. look, it is incredibly
inappropriate and presumptuous for our president to instruct a foreign government who they should set as an ambassador. >> speaking of inappropriate. trump discussed wind farms with nigel farage. he happens to have a wind farm he doesn't like. >> because of the noise when they're playing golf. >> at his resort in scotland. >> so what's inappropriate? >> because that's something that he was encouraging them to look at. again, it benefits his business. we're reading about this in the foreign press again, something that could potentially affect donald trump's businesses. it's mixing seemingly to mix diplomacy with his business interests. >> you've always sent the right ambassador. you always send an ambassador that gets along well. the u.s. once sent an ambassador in london who loved farms where the queen had sent her horses for stud farm in kentucky because you want to build a relationship, but you do it quietly. you do it diplomatically. you do not go and ask them would
you please send your greatest political rival to be your number one ambassador. >> you do if, if your basic motivating factor is that you reward people who are nice to you. that is the only thing that explains farage based on what you're laying out is that simple dynamic. it also is the only thing to my mind that explains his ignoring of the alt right in this country. by alt right i mean neonazis raising their hand in the czarist salute and having these meetings. it can only mean to me, matt, that if you are nice to trump, he will ignore you because he calls out everybody by name. >> or reward you. >> or at least not do what he should do. >> denounce you. >> which is denounce him by name. otherwise, how do you explain these guys raising the nazi signal? i mean, nothing unites america like their hate of hate. and he does not call them out by name which he would do with matt lewis, alisyn camerota, "the new york times." specific, if you're nice to them
then what you do is okay. >> i think that's sort of been the m.o. for donald trump for a long time is loyalty. i think he should be very explicit in condemning the alt right. i don't know that he needs to mention specific people's names, but he certainly does it to like "the new york times." >> just think about it. >> the conference this weekend. >> he went after obama. you won't say radical islamic terror. you won't say it. you won't say it. now he won't say these people's names who are holding up nazi signals. >> it's going to be interesting not to change the subject but the larger theme of rewarding your friends and punishing your enemies. he's about to make a pick for secretary of state. if he picks mitt romney, that sends a different message than if he picks rudy giuliani and that might actually tell us a lot about whether or not you're right about that sense that it's all about being nice to him. >> that depends on whether the secretary of state will have much power/influence in any
putin said president-elect donald trump has confirmed to him that he is, quote, willing to normalize russian/american relations. the idea has many lawmakers concerned. democratic senator ben cardon is one of them writing in an op ed saying, quote, i implore the trump administration to see russia for what it is, a global bully and adversary. senator cardin joins us now. you being confused with a man you've never been confused with before, john mccain. he's been saying the same thing, senator cardin. what's wrong with donald trump's treaties that we will be better off getting along with russia? >> chris, russia's not our friend. they're not our partner. we ignore them at our own peril. ask the people of ukraine whether they can trust russia's statements now that russia is occupying part of ukraine. ask the people of maldova, georgia, they've taken over part
of the sovereignty of that country. ask our allies in the baltics how they feel. in the united states, may not have been attacked by a mig but we were attacked by a mouse. russia has attacked america through cyber. we have to respond to that. we want to get along with that. russia is an aggressor, a bully. if we start to say what they're doing is okay, we're going to find that their activities will be even more aggressive. >> trump says, you are right, senator cardin. all of those conditions exist. they do because you democrats are weak and you have been weak for eight years. your russian reset was a failure. they have run amuck. we cannot just go against them. you tried it. it didn't work. i want to try to do it like a businessman. i want to work with them where we can and by that i will get some more input in what russia does. it's a better way than your way. what do you say? >> russia's a corrupt regime.
you can't deal with them in a sense that we're going to get along. what they've already done, you've seen aggression against u.s. interests. they're determined to compromise democratic institutions. they're spending billions of dollars infiltrating using democratic institutions against itself. we don't want to be converted by russia. we want preserved democratic institutions and the international community's looking to america for leadership. if we start to make nice with russia with their activities in awe crane and their activities in syria preventing humanitarian assistance with syria, compromising our ability to go against isol, what we're doing is playing into russia, playing into a greater russia. that is bad for democracy and bad for freedom around the world. >> two quick questions. first, what have you done about it? i went to ukraine for cnn. we covered the situation there. everybody knew what they were doing. everybody knew how the
investigation of mh 17 would wind up. the u.s. did nothing to stand against russia there. when they annexed crimea, the u.s. did nothing. this sense of urgency right now from you seems to run in the face of the disposition of the u.s. administration for the past eight years, which has been to not check russia in any real way. >> well, chris, democrats and republicans need to work together in congress. i was the leader in passing the mcnitsky accountability act where we have taken accountability for the russians who took action against sergei mcnitsky. i am seeking legislation that will provide additional tools that we can take action against russia, prevent american businesses from helping to finance russia's aggression, to sanction those individuals who are responsible for attacks against our own country in cyber. there are activities that we can do in congress to provide the
leadership that we need, and i can assure you that there are going to be many of us, democrats and republicans will be very active in regards to what we can do against russia. >> last question. reading your washington post piece, there seemed to be a little bit of a subtext that you're concerned about what trump's motivations may be with his more friendly disposition towards russia. do you really have any reason to believe that trump is compromised when it comes to russia because of political feelings, sympathies, business interests, anything? >> the questions i really don't know. as you know, he's never filed his tax returns. we do not know his business dealings in russia. that's the reason why it's critically important that donald trump puts his assets in a blind trust or sells his assets. we don't know. if he has business dealings in russia, we don't know how that is used to try to influence u.s. policy decisions. that's why it's extremely
important that the president does not have any potential conflicts in dealing with any country around the world. >> well, it does seem to be a primary role when you talk about constitutional congressional oversight of the executive. very interesting to see if you guys get together and ask him some questions about his conflicts. senator cardin, i wish you and your family a happy thanksgiving. you're always welcome on "new day" to talk about what matters. >> thanks, chris. >> you be well. chris, a deadly school bus crash in tennessee that we continue to report on. how will federal officials decide what went wrong? and how to prevent it from happening to other children on their way to school. we will ask the head of the ntsb next. our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man. hey, wait up.
tragic news out of tennessee. school bus driver charged with vehicular homicide after a crash that killed at least five elementary students. martin savidge has more. >> reporter: flipping on its side crashing into a tree. this is the image in chattanooga, tennessee, killing at least five students and
injuring 23. >> he wasn't paying attention. he was going real fast. >> the bus driver 24-year-old n johnthony walker. >> speed is being investigated. >> a witness said she heard a big boom just before 3:30 p.m. and that the impact was so strong it knocked her power out. >> this has been a great tragedy for us. we have suffered a great loss. >> reporter: as emergency officials raced to the scene, so did frantic parents. the fire department working for hours to remove the 37 elementary school students on board trapped inside. meanwhile, hundreds of residents from the community lining up to donate blood at a local blood bank to help the injured. their parents hoping they can take their child home soon. >> we are working diligently to ensure that all of the other children who have received care at the hospitals or may have been transported to other locations are reunited
successfully with their families. >> joining us now is the president of the national safety council and former ntsb chairman deborah herzman. thank you very much for being here. >> good morning. >> so they've already charged the 24-year-old driver with vehicular homicide. how do they know already that he did something criminally wrong? >> you know, i'd say the local authorities probably have a lot more information on the ground than we do. there can be anything from cameras that are on board the bus to witnesses to even self-disclosure by that driver and so when you have fatalities involving children on school buses, this is clearly a huge concern for the community. >> so what does vehicular homicide mean in this case? it means that there weren't road conditions, that the bus slid off the road. it means either, what, that he was speeding or that he was under the influence of something? >> well, i'd say at this point i don't know that information, but
certainly the local authorities will know. it's standard procedure after any crash involving fatalities to do blood and alcohol -- blood alcohol tests, drug tests. also, the speed issue certainly the local authorities have referred to that and so there may be some indicators about speed. certainly the crash was catastrophic and it was in a neighborhood where speeds should be on the low side. >> deborah, why don't school buses, all school buses, have seat belts? >> you know, we have a patch work system across our country. some states do require seat belts, but others don't. the national safety council has recommended that on all newly manufactured school buses we ought to have three-point belts. that's the best protection that we can give our kids. it's what they're used to in cars. and we know that there are very few fatalities involving children on school buses every year. they are a safe form of
transportation, but anything that we can do to make them safer is really our responsibility. >> but isn't this a no brainer? who's fighting it? why wouldn't school buses have seat belts? who's fighting this one? >> well, i'd say a lot of it has to do with the communities that are responsible for replacing or buying new school buses, but the school bus manufacturers have made it very easy. many states, again, do have requirements. in fact, the state of california, the biggest state in the country does require three-point belts. so when we're looking at new manufacturer and buses lasting potentially for decades, we want to have the best safety equipment on board. >> so meaning money from the local communities is what's preventing it from being just nationwide? >> you know, i do think that you have to follow the money. we're talking about a couple thousand dollars for each new bus that's purchased, but also it's about changing behavior and changing the culture. getting kids to buckle up every
time on the busz. it has a lot of other benefits. keeping them seated, behavior, everything else. but it's really about safety. everyone's grown up with seat belts and the standards on school buses date to the 1970s. times have changed and we need to update the standards for buses. >> times have changed. i mean, this is now -- all kids know -- we've done a good job at sort of the public service campaign that kids have to buckle up, so the idea that there are still kids on school buses who aren't doing it just sort of flies in the face of logic. do we know if there were seat belts on this school bus? >> in this situation we don't know what the bus was equipped with. certainly the investigators will be looking at that when they arrive on scene, but this is not a state where you have a three-point belt requirement. >> very quickly, do buses have those information boxes, the so-called black boxes that airplanes have? will they be able to find
something from the technology on the bus of what went wrong? >> the great thing about school buses, is that they very often have better technology than we see on anything else on the roadways, not just the event data recorders that can give you speed and braking but also cameras. school buses often have cameras inside the bus internal facing and external facing cameras so they'll be looking for those. >> deborah hersman, thank you so much for all of the information this morning. >> thank you. >> chris. there is just this question that continues to confound. why is donald trump, a man who does not suffer any criticism lightly, loves to call people out, why is he refusing to directly condemn the alt right by name? why isn't he calling out nazi saluting extremists? david axlerod joins us for "the bottom line" next. the best simple salad ever? heart healthy california walnuts. the best simple veggie dish ever?
movement raising their arms in the nazi salute. richard spencer, the leader, delivered his speech. here's a little you can play and not get sick over. >> hail trump, hail our people, hail victory. >> now this isn't about this group or that they exist or their numbers because they're not that relevant in america. it's about why our president is dealing with them the way he is or isn't. let's get to the bottom line with david axlerod. the main line defense is, you know, president obama won't call out radical islamic terrorism for what it is. he won't call out black lives matter for what it is. why go after trump for not calling out these nazi saluting guys by that i am? >> well, i don't think the -- i
don't think that the comparison holds. you know, the president has been very tough on terrorism and on terrorists and on islamic terrorists, the extreme islamic sector among isis and al qaeda. the u.s. has been pounding them under this administration. he's been very tough on them, but let's separate out that issue and, you know, your panel, i think, hit it on the nose. donald trump essentially denounces people who he thinks are not kind to him and he is more reluctant to take on people who are supportive of him, regardless of where they come from. they did send a spokesman out to say he doesn't have an association with this groucp, bt he's very free to tweet about the cast of "hamilton," not so
much about this group. it would be good for the country if he did it. the odd thing is his family members, his daughter, his son-in-law, his grandchildren -- >> jews. >> -- are jewish. you would think he would take personal umbrage at some of the language used by mr. sentences spencer and that group which were virulently anti-semitic. >> jared kushner is jewish, an orthodox jew. he observes the sabbath, et cetera, et cetera. you know, he is the real deal. and yet steve bannon, who has bragged that he created the platform for the alt right with breitbart or at least his incarnation of it also has the president's ear. and they both are his top advisors. so it's hard to know which way donald trump feels about what the alt right stands for. >> yeah. you know, but trump has sort of
defined his philosophy very simply, which is he's about winning. i think he feels if people help him win, if people are supportive of him then, you know, he is going to be supportive of him. i'm not suggesting the alt right people, i'm suggesting the people he has around them. i just don't think he's going to go after people who are supportive of him. >> but what i don't get is politically, even if you're looking at this politically, which frankly i don't think you should, he has nothing to lose. if he comes out against this group, who does he lose? the alt right? they aren't big enough in numbers? one of the mistakes that democrats made was they confuse these haters that glomed on to his movement as the same as all those mittle class and working families. how do you lose? denounce them for what they are. >> just to add on to your point,
a lot of his supporters were older, rural working class white vote voters. a lot men but also women. very much part of a generation that remembers world war ii or whose parents fought in world war ii against naziism, against fasism. a lot of them would be uncomfortable with mr. spencer and his group. i just don't think when you look at -- if you look at his body of tweets, if that's the window into his mind, then they really reflect his anger at people who lash out at him and, you know, that seems to be the consistent thread of his discourse. so if you are supportive of him, he's less apt to strike out. if you're not or if you're critical, he is. you know, that's a particular
problem for the news media because the news media's job is to scrutinize people in positions of power. and so strap on your seat belts. it's going to be a long four years. >> on that note, david axlerod, thanks so much for the bottom line. >> okay. donald trump and his family going against traditional politics. donald trump's wife, melania and his son barron, will wait to move into the white house. they will stay in new york city instead. so how will that decision define the next first lady? >> but, first, zach anner is a comedian, actor and writer. he has cerebral palsy, but he also has one of the quickest wits on youtube. he is the subject of this week's turning point. watch this. >> dealing with cerebral palsy growing up, you know, having a sense of humor about it was really the key. hi, i'm zach anner and i'm a
used underwear model. i was diagnosed with cerebral palsy like a year after i was born. when i was a baby i did get eye surgery and you could see how well that worked out. back in 2010 my mom, she said oprah is launching this new network and she's going to give away a tv show and you should totally audition for it. my audition video got me on the reality show and then i won the reality show. and from there i won a travel show. and then it was canceled and now i'm a youtuber. i think oprah was definitely a huge turning point in my life because that was the first time i realized that i could do this as a career. work out wednesday is my comedy fitness series. >> i am an olympian.
all of my friends are pitching in to help make these things. my life is a collaborative effort. >> that's good. >> i hope to make people laugh and maybe make them think a little bit. if they're inspired by what i do, then that's great. >> i'm fine. turning points brought to you by cancer treatment centers of america. care that never quits. i was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. stage four cancer. and i was shocked. the plan at that point was to start chemo. every three weeks i would get my chemo infusion. it would work for a few months then would quit working again. my oncologist ordered the genomimimic testing. if they've exhausted all of our standard agents, then we offer advanced genomic testing. in lynn's case, the result of that testing showed that her cancer had two actual mutations. an actual mutation is a genetic abnormality in that particular patient's cancer cell
for which we have a targeted therapy. i feel great, i can't believe the energy i have. it feels good to get your life back. the evolution of cancer care is here. learn how advanced genomic testing is changing the way we fight cancer at cancercenter.com/genomics appointments available now. ...stop clicking around...travel sites to find a better price... the lowest prices on our hotels are always at hilton.com. so pay less and get more only at hilton.com. may not always be clear. but at t. rowe price, we can help guide your retirement savings. so wherever your retirement journey takes you, we can help you reach your goals. call us or your advisor t. rowe price. invest with confidence.
when president-elect donald trump moves into the white house in january, his wife and son will not be coming with him for now. the future first lady and 10-year-old son barron trump will remain in new york city until the end of the school year. so let's bring in vanity fair writer emily jane fox to talk about this as well as donald trump's son-in-law jared kushner. emily, thanks so much. great to have you here. >> thanks for having me. >> so, washington, d.c., has schools. they have some excellent schools. that's where other presidents with young kids have sent their kids. why is -- why must barron remain here in new york city. >> i think melania and barron have been shielded away from the campaign and the transition since president-elect trump has announced his candidacy. i think melania as a mother has decided to keep her child off the campaign trail and out of the public light. i think she wants to keep his life as normal and as close to normal as possible. i think keeping him in his school where he feels
comfortable is her top priority. >> fair enough. it's every parent's prerogative to send their child to school if they can afford it wherever they would like. are we certain that they will be moving to washington, d.c.? noerz, is there any indication that melania and barron don't want to move to washington, d.c., and may not? >> i think until a trump does something it's hard to say that they will do something. i think we've seen that time and time again throughout the campaign. for now it appears they will be moving. i think that's what president-elect trump has said, they will move at the end of the school year. until it happens, it's hard to say definitively. >> your most recent article for vanity fair is about jared kushner. son-in-law of donald trump and married to ivanka. he has the president-elect's ear. he's become a vital part of the campaign, he is an orthodox jew and we have been talking a lot this morning about the alt right movement. there was a conference of about 200 people this weekend where the alt right said basically
this is our moment and they had all sorts of nazi salutes and they talked about how they want to restore white nationalism. steve bannon, who is a chief strategist is -- he said -- i mean, he gave them a platform, he said, at breitbart. how does jared kushner reconcile all of that that steve bannon represented? >> now jared hasn't commented on that. i'll start with that. but he has defended his father-in-law saying that he knows him to be a very tolerant, accepting individual. he has also defended steve bannon. i think the jewish community in my reporting is having a hard time figuring out how jared can stand by this, but many people i spoke to look at this as a practical decision, to support the trump administration because they want him to support israel. and i think that jared kushner from my reporting may fall in line with that where it's let's stick by him. let's not speak up against this
because we're going to need him down the line to stand up for israel. >> do you think that jared kushner will press donald trump to denounce more forcefully the alt right movement? >> i think donald trump is his own man and i think donald trump will do what donald trump wants to do, but i also think from everything i've learned in my reporting, that donald tends to do whatever the last person in his ear tells him to do. and so if jared is in his ear telling him to do something, odds are he'll listen, it's just a question of if that's what jared's priorities are now. >> this can't be a comfortable time for jared kushner. >> or ivanka. >> about everything that they're hearing from the alt right with this conference. >> it's difficult. they're very observant jews. they go to synagogue during the week. their children go to jewish day school. this is not an easy thing for any jew to square. i think it must be very difficult for any jew to have in their face day after day. really tricky time for the
family and for all jews across america. >> we will see what they do and what their influence is on president-elect trump. thank you for sharing your reporting with us. the good stuff is next. hey guys, i'm home! of course no one said it had to be cooked. campbell's one dish recipes, designed around one pan and your schedule. made for real, real life.

time for the good stuff, and, boy, do we need it. sure. it's a place where guys go to get their haircut, but a barber shop is a lot more than that, especially in this place in iowa we're about to take you. it's like a brotherhood. they talk about simple guy stuff, also important issues, race relations, policing. take a listen. >> frustration to anger to, you know, different people telling stories about encounters that they've had, good and bad. >> ice cube's movie was not that far off. there is a real culture there. it's also something that is taking place in iowa. that was barber donnell rivers. he wants to close that gap. he wants to unite brothers within the city, men in blue. bring them both together so he asked the waterloo police chief to make pamphlets for the shop. >> it's important with all that's going on in our community to do something pro active.
get people to know what their rights are, what to do in certain situations so everybody can go home safely. >> good for him. he's dedicated to making a positive change in the community. the barber shop, such a place of cultural relevance and it can be very useful in what they're trying to do. >> yes. obviously bring the police together with the people in the community. everybody's trying to do that so good for donnell. >> everybody likes a nice, tight cut. >> okay. >> time for "newsroom" with carol costello. big fan of the barber shop. i saw her getting a cut and a shave. >> i did get a shave. very smooth and nice. >> beautiful face. >> get out. you guys have a nice day.
