president-elect. they had frog legs at jean georges restaurant. >> have you eaten frog legs? >> i've never had frog legs nor have i pronounced jean-goerges restaurant correctly. you can see the man who will be donald trump's chief of staff reince priebus as well. after the dinner, mitt romney went to the microphone. >> i had a wonderful evening with president-elect trump. we had another discussion about affairs throughout the world. and these discussions with him have been enlightening and interesting. and engaging. i've enjoyed them very, very much. i was also very impressed by the remarks he made on his victory night. by the way, it's not easy
winning. i know that myself. he did something i tried to do and was unsuccessful in accomplishing. he won the general election. and he continues with a message of inclusion to bring people together. and his vision is something which obviously connected with the american people in a very powerful way. >> calling donald trump a winner is the highest form of praise in trump world. i do not think it's an accident that mitt romney chose that language. cnn's jim acosta who got a reservation for him at jean-goerges, so he could get an interview. >> president-elect trump and the manufacturer carrier in indianapolis striking a deal to keep 1,000 jobs in indiana. during his campaign, trump blasted the plans to close two plants in the states and opening
a factory in mexico. he tweeted i will be going to indiana on thursday to make a major announcement concerning carrier ac. cnbc reports carrier received new inducements from the state of indiana. translation -- money. that means taxpayers in the state could be on the hook. it's also unclear how many jobs will be save. carrier said close to 1,000 will be saved but 2100 work at the factory. this is a big win for donald trump. he's making good on his promise to stop companies from shipping jobs overseas. carrier makes air conditioners and furnaces. it's owned by united technology and also a company that makes huge jet engines and as has a
huge contract with the government. what implicit threat, if you're carrier, you don't want to enrage this administration. >> fascinating to find out what is in the deal. the details matter. like you said, it's a win for donald trump who said he was going to do this and to an extent has done it. and also a win for the 1,000 workers who likely not lose their jobs now. rain on the way in tennessee and that is a welcome development. wildfires there fueled by extreme drought. 80-mile-per-hour wind gusts are blamed for at least three deaths. authorities say the fires are, quote, human cause. we'll get the very latest from cnn's brian todd. >> all right. as you can see, it's just been really devastating there. you have dollywood and other places in gatlinburg closed. in the meantime, let's talk
about the back ground on trump's economic picks expected to be announced today. steve mnuchin years at goldman sachs and john tells me producer of "avatar." and got indymac for penneys on the dollar and paid millions of fines and told it for a big profit. >> and "x-men." >> wilbur ross owns his own firm, wl ross & company. made huge profits, deep roots in steel and coal. he's represented the bondholders in trump companies. trump's choice for education secretary, betsy devos also a billionaire. cnn has learned that retired
marine corps general john kelly is emerging to be trump's pick as secretary of homeland security. telling our mark preston that president-elect likes kelly's views on border secure. general kelly is the head of the southern command. if he ends up being confirmed he would join james matos which is secretary of defense. three generals. >> three generals and three billionaires. let's go live to washington to bring in cnn politics reporter todd koppen. you've got elaine chao tapped as transportation secretary which i think is a play on getting an infrastructure built. also running the labor department. i think the longest serving labor secretary during the bush administration. we also know -- we now have a money team. contrarians, both of them, risk
takers, both of them. what do you see shaping up here? >> yeah, and let's not forget that elaine chao is also the wife of senator mitch mcconnell that would be working on any plans that donald trump wants to push through that is not lost on washington. donald trump instead of turning to power brokers, you mentioned generals, billionaires, he's turned to names well-known around town. elaine chao. jeff session, tom price, mike pompeo, all come from congress. they're sitting members of congress. so, he's looking to people who can really pull the levers of washington. you also have reince priebus who is the chairman of the rnc. one of the longest serving ever. very well-known around town. very well connected. in some way critics are saying, oh, so much for draining the swamp. he's turning to folks in d.c. but he's also sending the
message that he clearly wants to get things done and he's picking people who may be able to do this. >> but the billionaires are people who have done big things in the fields in which they've been nominated. let's talk about mitt romney. this was a fascinating dinner with pass naturesing comment after jean-georges. let's play the sound for mitt romney talking about after this meal. >> i happen to think that america's best days are ahead of us. i think you're going to see america continuing to lead the world in this century. and what i've seen through these discussions i've had with president-elect trump, as well as what i've seen in his speech the night of his victory, as well as the people he selected as part of his transition. all of those things combined give me increasing hope that president-elect trump is the very man who can lead us to that better future. thank you. >> the very man, lead us to that
better future. he called donald trump a winner. now mitt romney didn't apologize, but that's a gushing phrase from the republican nominee. >> yeah, in some ways we're seeing sort of a delayed version of what everyone typically expects in the general election. but, you know, republicans are realizing they control washington. they've got the presidency, they've got the senate, they've got the house. and they all sort of want different things. and republicans are a very diverse group. and if you actually talk to a bunch of different elements to that party. there may be fights coming ahead. they do not see the same policy agenda moving forward with republican control in washington. but mitt romney is now getting in line, as many others are, i'm hearing a lot of folks saying, oh, actually mitt romney and donald trump's policies are pretty similar when you drill into them. so, there's definitely a
message, despite some of the very intense rhetoric that we heard from mitt romney on the trail that these two men, the story goes are going to let bygones be bygones. they get along well. as our sources told dan floria . >> everyone likes america. i'm going to ask you a question about carrier. >> and everyone likes frog legs too. >> yes, frog legs. we're following breaking news out of alabama. destructive storms overnight. also, deadly wildfires in tennessee. much needed rain. will it bring an end to that crisis? p is for permission to indulge.

all right. we have breaking news out of alabama. a deadly tornado ripped through jackson county. this happened just a few hours ago. we've just learned that three people are dead. there are multiple injuries. that tornado is part of a series of strong storms that tore through the northern part of alabama overnight. damaging or destroying homes and businesses. some of this video, we're just getting our first look at. we'll continue to monitor the situation and bring you developments as the sun comes up. >> we wish you the best. welcome news in tennessee this morning, rain is on the way. wildfires fueled by extreme drought conditions and 80-mile-per-hour winds blamed for at least three deaths. forcing thousands in the city of gatlinburg to evacuate. the latest from cnn's brian todd. >> reporter: john and christine, the mayor of gatlinburg says
this is a situation where people were basically running for their lives as they were trying to get out of town. trying to escape the flames. we talked to one man who escaped with his family on monday. he said that the smoke and flames were so intense and so thick that when he was caravanning out of gatlinburg with his wife in the lead car ahead of him. he was trailing in the car behind him, he could not see her car, the smoke was that thick and said his 1-year-old daughter was choking in the backseat. harrowing tales in gatlinburg. people trying to get out. some did not. we know of at least three people killed in difficult locations of the wildfires. the fire chief says they don't know if more people have been killed because they have not been able to get to every affected area. you've got fire crews staged here, they're getting ready to deploy. another fire truck here. a short time ago we saw a bunch of them stream out of here with
sirens blazing. this came up so very fast that a lot of people just did not have time to get out. or very little time. this is a situation where high winds, some as strong as hurricane force in the high 80s, in miles per hour, were blowing embers miles from where they picked the embers up and dumping the embers ton trees that were already like match sticks because this place has been experienced a drought since april. i spoke to a national parks spokewoman, she said as of now there are about 15,000 acres that have been charred. and she says, a very important piece of information she gave us, she said this was human cause. now, i pressed her on whether this was arson or not. she would not go there. she said she's not ready to say that. but they do know this is human cause and that part is under investigation. now, into wednesday, they're expect something rain to come here. hopefully that will help douse some of the flames. with the rain, they're expecting
some winds, gusts up to 60 miles an hour. while the rain may help douse winds, the rain may fan the flames in other areas making firefighters' lives more difficult. israel's top legislative body is now discussing legalizing outposts in the west bank. this comes week before one key settlement is supposed to be evacuated. cnn elan lee live in jerusalem. what are the arguments so far, ian, on this very thorny subject. >> that's right, john. this bill would legalize 55 outposts in the west bank. now, the international community has viewed settlementes in youft posts as illegal. but what the government is trying to do is legalize it within the israeli law. and this is quite controversial. and has international ramificatio ramifications. the prime minister benjamin netanyahu has worned if this bill goes through then a resolution could be brought up
at the u.n. security council against israeli settlements. in the past, u.s. president barack obama has deflected that -- has protected israel from any sort of solution. but in this lame duck session, there's fear that within the israeli government that he might let a resolution go through, especially because he has pushed for a two-state solution. and this bill would make it far more difficult for a two-state solution. there's also concern that israeli leaders could be brought in front of the international criminal court if this bill were to go through. but this also creates a crisis within the really government. this bill circumstance come centers the israeli which ordered that the what mona outpost be dissolved by december 5th. then it brings up the question who has the last say, the israel high court or fir parliament? >> elan, thanks. the college football playoff

of inclusion to bring people together. and his vision is something which obviously connected with the american people in a very powerful way. >> there you go congratulating the winner, something donald trump really understands, cnn jim acosta asked president-elect trump if romney will be his pick for secretary of state. trump's answer, we're going to see what happens. >> indeed he will. this morning, what could be a victory for donald trump as he takes office. and a victory for workers in indiana. the president-elect managed a deal with the air conditioner company carrier. on twitter last night he said this, i will be going to indiana on thursday to make a major announcement concerning carrier ac staying in indianapolis. great deal for workers. now vice president-elect mike pence who, by the way is currently the governor of indiana and holds a lot of sway
here and can give some carrots for this deal, he's going to join in that announcement. >> there are critics. cnbc reports that carrier received new inducements from the state of indiana. translation -- money. critics say taxpayers could be on the hook. unclear how many jobs we're talking about here. carrier says close to 1,000 will be saved but 2100 people who work at those two facilities in the area, we're told, those jobs would be going away. 1,000 out of 2100. this is a negotiation. it is a deal for donald trump. he's making good on a promise to stop companies from shifting jobs overseas. the other thing here, the leverage for donald trump and the administration, carrier is owned by another company called united technologies which has huge government contracts. so it's very easy here for the administration, not to even have to say anything. you know if you're carrier and united technologies that there could be other place that you
could get hurt if you're not working with the administration. >> look, we want to see the details, the bottom line, 1,000 workers thought they were going to lose a job. doesn't look like. a lot of partisan lines have been crossed. the president-elect trump expected to roll out his economic team. a goldman sachs banker, a movie financier, his choice for treasury secretary. and the bid for commerce. let's get the latest from cnn's sunlener is pa serfaty. >> the president-elect making a slew of cabinet picks. sources confirm to cnn that trump has chosen billionaire investor wilbur ross as commerce secretary and former goldman sachs executive steve mnuchin.
those announces are expected to come formally by team trump. and elaine chao to now lead the transportation department and gop congressman tom price as his pick as secretary of health and human services but it really is this palace intrigue over who will be chosen as secretary of state, which continues to take center stage. trump hosting more the contenders here in new york on tuesday. he met with senate foreign relations chairman bob corker and having a more certainly second sit-down, with mitt romney last night. a big dinner meeting at the restaurant jean-georges at the trump international hotel here in new york city. a lot of deep divisions within trump's top aides still over who would make the best pick for this job. the most high-profile cabinet position overall. >> these are the names we've been talking about for quite sometime. let me give you background on the economic picks.
steve mnuchin spent 17 years at goldman sachs. then went to hollywood to produce movies. and also trump's finance chairman. and i think he'll be grilled on the purchase of indymac and sold it for a big profit. another person who finds value in what looks like it has no value, trump has picked another billionaire, secretary of commerce, wilbur ross, he runs an investment firm that made huge profits and turning them around. both are contrarians. wilbur ross has deep roots in the steel and coal industries. he represented bondholders in trump's casino bankruptcies. and he will succeed penny prettier. she's also a billionaire. and betsy deross is a billionaire, too. >> going live to tal koppen, to
get a look at the picks. mitt romney, donald trump, jean-georges, listen to a little bit more of what mitt romney said after that meeting. >> the last few weeks, he's been carrying out a transition effort. and i can tell you i've been impressed by what i've seen in the transition effort. the people he's selected as members of his cabinet are solid, effective, capable people. >> all right. a lot of praise for mitt romney heaped on donald trump which is very different, tal, than what we heard from mitt romney during the campaign. >> yeah, oh what a difference an election makes, right? mitt romney played his cards a certain way during the election. clearly thought the outcome would be different on election day. and now everyone in washington is coming around to the fact that this is going to be a donald trump administration. and if you are a republican in
this country, this is your opportunity if you want a piece of the action. by all accounts, the two men supposedly got along well during their dinners. sources tell dana bash that they really had a rapport. that's a pretty good thing for any incoming president. donald trump is known to be someone who values loyalty. that's not something that romney has shown in the past. but we're certainly hearing that message from him now. so, we'll see what happens going forwards. this is a very odd sort of public dance we're seeing happen for secretary of state. but it doesn't seem to be that mitt romney is an unserious proposal. it seems to be being weighed very seriously. >> for the money team when i look at steve mnuchin and wilbur ross, they're contrainians, he understands conventionalism. and knows how to find profit
outside of that. for example, when the housing market was falling apart. he was just sitting there waiting patiencely to find the value in housing. this is conventional wisdom. i think conventional wisdom also was american companies are globalized. the president of the united states can't tell a company to keep some jobs and they will. oh, this president looks like he has in the carrier deal. how big of a deal is the carrier news that they'll be announcing in indianapolis? >> well, it's a big deal for donald trump's narrative, right? because he ran this whole campaign saying he would create jobs for the american people. it was very anti-trade, anti-globalization. he repeatedly attacked carrier on the campaign trail for wanting to move their plant. but, you know, having worked in local news, these kind of things happen quite a bit, and there are always a lot of questions as to whether the company ever really intended to move. whether it was a threat to extract confessions from the
local government. remember, vice president-elect mike pen is still the governor of indiana. there's a big question on the hat he was wearing in the role of these negotiations. typically, the president of the united states does not get involved in every company that may want to move out of the country and personally negotiate the deal. on the one hand, it's a great thing for him to say, look, i'm delivering on my campaign promise already. but whether this deal ends up being good for indiana and well received, i mean, he's going to have to deal with the fallout and analysis. >> we need to know the details but i want to say it's a good thing for the 1,000 people having their jobs taken away. >> 1100 other workers, we're still unclear. >> there's a lot to find out here. good for donald trump and workers as well. steve mnuchin is san interesting character who will be commerce secretary. mnuchin worked at goldman sachs
for a long time. i remember to remember donald trump running against wall street and finance. yet, the man who is running up his economic team is a man who knows a lot and has worked heavily in finance, tal. >> yes, do you. in fact, he said goldman had total control over ted cruz, and it was a talking point on the campaign trail. and lo and behold he's on his economic team. keep in mind, you have senators like bernie sanders and elizabeth warn are who are going to be champing at the bit for steve mnuchin and use him as a proxy for all of their qualms on wall street. this is not going to be a pleasant process for steve mnuchin because he represents so much of what the democrats and donald trump ran against. but he represents someone who
has been successful. and that's been a huge part of donald trump's appeal. and you know, there isn't a lot of pushback from the industry that the treasury would regulate. that's also going to benefit him. >> so we have billionaires, power brokers in the inner circle tal kopen. thanks for being here. we're following breaking news out of northern alabama to tell you about. a tornado touched down a few hours ago. there are deaths. there are injuries. we've got a damage report -- next.
state overnight. damaging homes and businesses, you can see there. about 3500 customers are still without power across the state. vinvestigators in colombia trying to determine a plane that crashed in the mountains of medellin simply ran out of fuel. 78 people died in that crash. six people survived reportedly because of the lack of fire in the damage. that led investigators to consider fuel depletion as the factor. and the university of ohio campus. tweeted out this picture. authorities confirmed that the suspect purchased knives on the morning of the rampage. and was likely inspired to carry out the take s by isis and the late cleric anwar al awlaki. members are set to vote on

intrigue. we're going to put that a little bit to the side. either the president-elect is going to pick romney or he isn't. so we're going to let that happen. we're also going to take a deep dive on the president-elect's choice for health and human services secretary. tom price has very definite ideas. there's some intrigue surrounding him john berman and christine romans. if he has such good ideas for health care, why could he not get his own gop leadership to sign on to them whether now. >> i'll be on what he says he's going to do. >> you're always a help. mostly hair and teeth. >> good hair. >> good hair. not real, but good. that's what mama told me. >> i've got in good for you. i've got good news if you're a homeowner, folks. prices now higher than they were in 2006. the crash. that's right. these gains are stunning.
