5:00 am
folks that are being arrested and possibly going to jail, that's important. >> but they've crossed a line. by the time you get arrested, you have lobbed so many threats, you've shown up, you've disrupted things. you have to really cross a violent line in order to be arrested. so before that, what's the answer? >> i think it's also an issue of bullying. even with the film, we get people on our newtown film website that just say this is a hollywood fiction. they've targeted film programmers who programmed our film to say they're fbi operatives who are part of this conspiracy with fake film. >> how many people are you talking about? are we talking about a dozen or hundreds? >> that have been affected? >> no, that are doing these sorts of things online? >> if you go to our imbd page, it's scary. you see all kinds of comments from people buying into this. >> we'll figure this out. thanks for coming on and tell us about what you've been on the receiving end of it. thanks again. we're following a lot of
5:01 am
news this morning. let's get to it. the enemy is pretty tough, right? so i think we need some tough people. >> the people he is picking is quite frankly, scary. >> these people are far more committed to protecting our democracy than their critics. >> the nation of china, they haven't played by the rules. and i know it's time that they're going to start. >> trump says he's going to remain executive producer of "celebrity apprentice". >> it's a big enough job without the conflicts presented by his conflicts of interest. >> there's going to be big beautiful doors. >> among all of these dreamers, there are some awfully bad people. >> extreme vetting. extreme. oh, it's going to be extreme. >> announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. >> good morning. welcome to your "new day." president-elect trump taking his victory lap through the midwest with his thank you tour, touting his ability to keep jobs in america. taking aim at china, kind of.
5:02 am
and defending his wealthy cabinet picks. >> this as a new conflict of interest crops up. the next commander in chief will maintain some control and remain executive producer of the reality show, "celebrity apprentice," and he may also collect a paycheck from nbc, while serving as the president of the united states. we're just 42 days away from inauguration day. we have it all covered for you, so let's begin with cnn's sunlen serfati live in washington. >> good morning, alisyn. this is real unchartered territory for a president here, certainly raising a lot of questions. once donald trump takes the oath of office, the nation will have a president who will still be part of and still have his name listed in the credits of a reality show. all of this as donald trump hits the road in full force, defending the people he's chosen for his cabinet. reveling in a crowd of thousands in iowa -- >> do you like it so far, everybody? >> reporter: -- president-elect donald trump defending his cabinet poemts.
5:03 am
>> i want people that made a fortune, because now they're negotiating with you. >> reporter: touting the success of some of his wealthy picks. >> it's no different than a great baseball player or a great golfer -- >> reporter: including carl's junior and hardee's executive, jared puzner to head the labor department. he's against expanding overtime pay and increasing the minimum wage. >> states have every right to decide what the minimum wage should be. i've the been opposed to a minimum wage increases that kill jobs. >> reporter: trump saying in a statement that puzner, quote, will save small businesses from the crushing burdens of unnecessary regulations. . >> meantime, scrutiny is growing over trump's pick to head the epa, oklahoma attorney general, scott pruitt. >> he's a climate science denier. >> reporter: at his third victory rally in des moines, trump echoing pruitt's call to roll back environmental regulations. >> we are going end to the e sfa intrusions into your lives. >> reporter: and doubling down on campaign promises, including
5:04 am
immigration. >> i've used the expression, extreme vetting. extreme. oh, it's going to be extreme. >> there are going to be doors. big, beautiful doors. >> reporter: trump also calling for improving u.s. relations with china. >> they haven't played by the rules and i know it's time that they're going to start. >> reporter: as he formally rolled out his pick to be u.s. ambassador to china. iowa governor terry branstad, a longtime friend of the chinese president. >> the man who knows china can likes china. better like china if you're going to be over there, do we agree? >> all of this as all eyes are on two big announcements coming next week, the president-elect's choice for secretary of state, and a news conference on thursday potentially backing away from his family business. but the incoming president is keeping his ties to "celebrity apprentice," the nbc reality show he launched nearly 15 years
5:05 am
ago. sources tell cnn trump will stay on as executive producer of the show, and continue being paid as he is in the oval office, raising even more questions about the growing list of conflicts between his business dealings and the presidency. and a transition official confirms this morning at trump tower, the president-elect will be meeting with speaker of the house paul ryan. also with west virginia senator joe manchin, a democrat, potentially being considered for a cabinet post. then trump will be spending most of his day on the road. he'll be in louisiana for the state republican party get out the vote rally there, and on to michigan, chris, for another stop on his thank you tour. >> thank you, sunlen. joining us now is republican congresswoman from tennessee, marsha blackburn. she's vice chair of the trump transition team. this news of the president-elect staying on as the executive producer of "the apprentice," tell the american people why they should not be concerned about this apparent conflict of interest. >> he has a great team around him and i'm certain they are telling him exactly what he can
5:06 am
and cannot do. and we're going to leave that for all of the attorneys. and those who deal with ethics in government employees. we're going to leave that for them to work out and the decisions that they bring forward -- >> it is a legal question? is it about what he can or can't do or what he should or should not do befitting the office of president? >> it is about what is allowed and what mr. trump would choose to do and how he would approach it within that code of ethics and conduct. and so we're going to leave that for them. i know, chris, it's not the -- that word that he would stay on is probably not something that would make you happy, but i think what we have to realize is that mr. trump comes from a different place into the oval office. he is not someone who has been previously me elective office. the american people are ready for change. they want the government to run in a more business-like fashion.
5:07 am
you are seeing that reflected in the choices that he is making. they want strong leadership, who is going to get this country back on the right track and pay attention to national security and job security. >> one more quick bead on this. i often see answers that personalize the criticism as if it's just about me, as a pretty obvious deflection. so you're saying, it doesn't bother you, at all, that donald trump is going to stay as executive producer and have maybe corporate responsibilities at the same time that he has governmental one. doesn't bother you at all, because? >> i know that there are stricter requirements around the code of ethics and the filings that are required for anyone who is serving in elective office at the federal level. i trust that those who are handling that for mr. trump and for the office of government ethics are paying close attention to every word, dotting every "i," crossing every "t."
5:08 am
and my faith is that they are going to do the appropriate thing and give him the right guidance and then the correct decisions will be made. >> you know, one of the things that you've been pretty strong on over the years, and i want to see how it's going to manifest now. and it goes to our constitutional reckoning of article i and the idea that you make laws, not the president. you were very critical about this with president obama, these executive orders, these runarounds we're hearing a lot of the same tactical approach coming from president-elect trump. that he will do, he will do, he will do, he will make happen. where is your feeling now about pushing back on the executive, that you make the laws, not the president. >> i think you're going to see respect for the separate divisions, equal -- co-equal branches of government. and i am pleased that speaker ryan has been so forthright in his work that we would recapture our article i powers. and that we, in house, would
5:09 am
make this a priority. and so much of what speaker ryan has done has set that forth. our republican conference has been diligent, as we have looked at the obamacare replacement, as we are looking at tax reform. even the ways and means committee, under chairman brady, next week, they're going to be in d.c. working on a tax reform plan. >> but you have not said anything recently about your concern about the president-elect thinking that he can do things that are really within the purview of your job as a congressperson. is this something that just bothered you with a democratic president and doesn't bother you as much with a republican president? >> respect for the co-equal branchs of government is something they treasure. and i know that you're going to see the executive branch work within their lane in the appropriate manner in working with the legislative branch.
5:10 am
you know, it's so interesting, chris, right now, i could not tell you who my white house liaison is. we sent an spail to we-mail to we thought was our white house liaison and it bounced back. that shows you the lack of communication that exists between these two branches. >> the white house called that an evidence of the obstructionism. >> no, we tried to reach out and the right person wasn't there or we didn't even know who to be in communication with. we had to go and search it out, when we were seeking to get information from them. so, you know, what we hope is justice with any relationship that you ever have, that stability of that relationship depends on respect. and what we are hopeful for is that there will be a respect from the executive branch shown to the legislative branch.
5:11 am
and that is -- that's something that we have things we want to get passed. we want to get to the president's desk. we are pleased that he is working with our speaker in making certain that the agenda is set forth. we are heading back on january 3rd to be sworn in. and immediately go to work. leader mccarthy has said we immediately will go to work and will work up until the time that the secret service closes and the capitol police close the capitol to prepare for the inaugural. >> it will be refreshing to see congress get back to work for the american people. that's for sure. >> yes, it will. >> so a couple of questions about the candidate. in terms of the recent epa pick, the concern is that the attorney general from oklahoma is a denier of some of the science behind global warming. what do you know about pruitt and how can you reassure people who believe that it is scientific fact that man has a hand in the effects of global
5:12 am
warming, that scott pruitt, as ter the epa administrator, will not be someone who denies that basic science. >> first and foremost, scott pruitt has respect for the rule of law. and he understands, also, the heavy burden that the epa, by getting outside of their wheelhouse and past their mission, the burden that they have put on businesses. you know, at one point in a hearing, when we were doing our oversight work for the epa, i asked the administrator about cost benefit analysis. and her response to me was they didn't do cost benefit analysis, because they were interested in the end product. now, that tells us a couple of things, chris. they weren't interested in the impact it was going to have on business. now, we are all for clean air, we're all for clean water. we are all for efficiencies when it comes to electric power generation. >> can you be for clean air and water if you do not believe that
5:13 am
man has a hand in global warming? >> of course, you can. of course you can be a believer in clean air and clean water. and realize that when you look at global warming or are climate change, as it is now popularly called, that it is cyclical. and you have to look at it in terms of centuries, not in terms of decades. and the science around that is not a settled science. >> but the predictions you're talking about. i'm asking about something that you haven't addressed yet, which is the idea that our activities contribute greatly to what is warming our planet over time. do you accept that? >> i think that there are those that would say, no, it is more of a cyclical process. there are those that will say, well, we do think humans have something to do with it. >> it's not "some," though, congressman.
5:14 am
you know that it's an overwhelming scientific consensus on the notion of whether or not man-made activities negatively impact global warming -- >> no, i do not -- >> -- it's not an open debate within the scientific movement. it's a big majority and a small level of people that reject it. not the cycles and what to do about it, those are all very debatable. i'm talking about the basic science. the last word on this? >> the fact is that there is still debate about that. and the participation of human beings in this. we all will agree that we want the earth to stay healthy. we all want clean air, we want clean water. we also want productivity and we want to make certain that efficiencies in our electric grid are realized and we want to make certain that we are able to have the energy that is necessary to fuel a productive economy. >> congressman blackburn, always a pleasure to have you on "new day." thank you for making the case. >> good to be you. thank you so much. >> all right.
5:15 am

5:18 am
president-elect donald trump thanking his supporters in iowa last night and pledging to follow through on two of his key
5:19 am
campaign promises. >> we will suspend immigration from regions where it cannot be safely processed or vetted. you know i've used the expression extreme vetting. extreme. oh, it's going to be extreme. we want people coming into our country, we want them coming legally, but we want them coming. when i talk about, we'll build the wall, we will. there will be doors on the wall. big, beautiful doors. this morning here with her reaction, former homeland security, and current president of the university of california, janet napolitano. great to have you here in studio. >> thank you. >> when you hear mr. trump talking about his ideas for immigration, what troubles you? >> i think we have to translate the ideas into reality. so i'm a former governor of arizona, as well as former secretary of homeland security. i know that southwest border like the back of my hand.
5:20 am
when you go down there, you realize that a wall is not a solution to illegal immigration. >> why not? if you build a big wall, how do people will get around. >> as i like to say, show me a 10-foot wall and i'll show you a 12-foot ladder. that's not the point. the part is to have layers of security. part is fencing, part of it is wall. part is better ports of entry for air trade. checkpoints on the road. all of those things that have been in place are being put in place now so we have net negative migration actually from the south into the united states. >> so how do you -- if the president puts in plans about doca, about dealing with people who came here illegally, even as children, that were brought in, so-called dreamers. if the law changes and all of that population are put in the category of those who must exit, because they are here illegally, you said university of california is not going to help with that.
5:21 am
>> that's right. >> do you have the ability to not go along with what the law of the land is? >> yeah, we do not have a legal obligation to be adjunct immigration officers. our university police focus on campus safety, but doca, deferred action for child arrivals, the dreamers, this is a really good program. this is taking students who were brought here as children, raised here, did everything right. did well enough in school to get into the university of california, these are people you want to keep in the country. they've had background checks, they've had criminal background checks -- >> but isn't the operative word there "you." and if the law changes and dreamers are seen as, if you came in illegally, you are here illegally, whatever the law winds up saying is the consequence for that, what gives the university of california the right not to comply? >> well, because we're not part of the federal government. there's no absolute obligation to be adjunct immigration officers, like i said. our law enforcement officers
5:22 am
focus on things like campus safety. we also have an obligation to protect the privacy of student records. that's another federal law that's on the books. but daca was a good idea at the time. it remains a good idea at the time. it's a way to say, look, in immigration enforcement, you've got to have priorities. felons, yes, gang members, yes, security threats, yes. find them. get them out of the country. these are though risk young people that have been raised in this country, many of them have never actually been to their country of origin, don't speak the language. it doesn't make any sense of a brain drain as part of your immigration policy. >> we had congressman steve king on our program yesterday who feels quite differently about dreamers, so-called dreamers. here's what he said. >> among all of these dreamers, there are some awfully bad people. and these dreamers go on up to the age of 37 or 38 or maybe
5:23 am
older. some of them are walking across the border, lots of them, and we'll see them coming across every day at mccallan, texas. they know what they're doing. it's not against their will. and they came here to live in the shadows. >> well, congressman king just wrong. he doesn't understand the program. to qualify for daca, you have to have lived here a certain number of years, you have to have come here as a young man. you have to have a criminal history check and all those other checks, as i mentioned. it has to be renewed every two years. it's not all of a sudden you get a criminal record and you're still safe because of daca. it's a two-year renewal program. it's designed to do a case-by-case evaluation of young people who from a value standpoint and from a legal and constitutional standpoint make sense to keep in the country. >> what do you think of general kelly in the post of homeland security? >> i think -- i don't know general kelly well. but i think the secretary feeds to be someone who can lead a large complex organization. >> the military aspect trouble
5:24 am
you at all? >> not so much, but it is a civilian organization. it's run very differently than the pentagon. you're dealing primarily with civilians. you do have the coast guard as part of homeland security. but you've got to be able to multitask. on the same deal happening with a terrorism issue, something happening in the air with a terrorism issue, you've got to deal with cybersecurity, which is an emerging threat that no one yet is adequately dealing with. >> are there any of the cabinet picks you've heard thus far that you do have issues with? >> well, you know, i think senator sessions as the attorney general, that's a troublesome pick. he's had such extreme views on so many issues that come before the department of justice. >> you mean modern day or things he's said decades ago? >> both. i would say both. and i've testified before him many times. he's very anti-immigration.
5:25 am
but, you know, you've got to have somebody that looks at immigration as a whole complex, a whole series of things, not all immigrants who are undocumented are -- the dreamers are not the same as steve king was talking about, someone sneaking across the border to deal drugs. these are very different situations. your policy has to capture that. >> do you have hope that president-elect trump will be a different person than he was during the campaign? that he does want to unite? that he will do things that really encapsulate the role of the president being a president for all? >> i hope so. and i think the country hopes so. and all presidents change once they take office. and the reality, the responsibility of the job really takes hold. but we're going to have to wait and see. >> janet napolitano, thanks so much. great to have you here. >> thank you. >> come again! the name "trump" will still be associated with "celebrity apprentice." what conflicts of interest does
5:26 am
this post for the president-elect? we get the bottom line, next.
5:27 am
why are you checking your credit score? you don't want to drive old blue forever, do you? [brakes squeak] credit karma, huh? yep, it's free. credit karma. give yourself some credit.
5:28 am
5:29 am
5:30 am
president-elect donald trump says he will stay on as executive producer of "celebrity apprentice." controversy, nontroversy. let's take it on with david chalian. i've put it as a binary choice, because that's what it is. it's either going to bother people or it won't. this isn't about legal or illegal, is it? >> no. and i'm going with nontroversy. i think it's fascinating, this is part of having this totally different person as president with his experience. kellyanne conway told you earlier, this is clearly going under review to some ethics advisers and attorneys. i assume the white house council's office, once he takes office, will need to make sure that everything is square here, as well. but, if, indeed, it gets the legal blessing and he stays on with executive producers, draws salaries from royalties, i think we'll have to watch to see if there's any policy making that comes out of the white house that somehow impacts
5:31 am
broadcasters in that way and maybe if he's an executive producer, there could be a conflict there to discuss. but i don't see this being much of a controversy. >> and kellyanne conway also said, all presidents need a hobby. >> and then she called work his hobby, right? >> she was referring to the ability to multitask. and she took a shot at obama saying that the president was playing golf all along and still able to do his job. >> president trump will like golf. if there's one thing we know about donald trump, it's that he loves his golf game. so i don't know if that's the right line of attack. >> yeah, that was odd to me. and notice she didn't rule out the fact that donald trump will be playing golf when you asked her about that, alisyn. so i'm sure we're going to see president trump on the golf course, just like when he saw president obama, president clinton, i guess george w. bush actually gave it up. but that is not unusual. and i'm sure that will continue. and i can't imagine being donald trump and having your name on as an executive producer credit, because you created the show, and as hope hicks, his
5:32 am
spokesperson says, still has a stake in this. i can't imagine it's going to be all that much taxing worktime for donald trump. >> how about jake tapper interviewing the vice president. it airs this weekend on the sunday show. here's a little taste. >> they'd have probably eaten me alive. who knows what would have happened. but -- and i really mean that. i don't know. i mean, i learned how to become popular. >> he's saying something that i haven't heard echoed in the media a lot lately, especially this latest round of drama about whether or not he'll run in 2020. there is this foregone conclusion that biden would have beaten clinton, because he's such a better connector with the middle class and he had it all over bernie. it somewhat ignores some of the problems he would have had as a candidate, right? >> first of all, it's very hard to do the counterfactual stuff and come up with a hypothetical scenario. but what we do have is some track record of joe biden. he ran for president twice. both were pretty disastrous presidential campaigns.
5:33 am
that doesn't say that clearly joe biden hasn't appealed with white working class voters. the scranton guy. that was clearly part of the calculus at the end of the day of this election that made a difference for those voters and perhaps he would have had a better connection with them. but i think he's right. and barack obama in recent interview with the new yorker was also saying in today's environment, things would have been very different than what he was experiencing in 2008 as a candidate. there's a little bit of truth to what joe biden is saying there. he's obviously being very gracious and not trying to, you know, put some more salt in the wounds of hillary clinton. there's no doubt about that, that he's being a gentleman. but i think the larger point that joe biden made to jake and has made elsewhere is repeating what he said at the convention, which was, these voters, economic anxiety and their concerns about society and how it's moving around them and their fear of that is something that the democratic party should not have ignored. and they did. >> david, you have a crystal ball. who do you think the leading -- who do you think the leading
5:34 am
contender is for secretary of state? >> oah, man, alisyn, i don't know. listening to kellyanne this morning, she tricked through a whole universe of names. obviously, mitt romney is still in contention. that is pretty clear. i am -- i don't have any reporting to suggest that there is a superseding top contender. i think the search has clearly widened and we'll have to wait until next week. it is going to be very important. it is the last piece in this cabinet in the high-profile positions that i think will give us the final sort of assessment to make about how to assess the whole of the cabinet. how he goes on this, especially on the national security side, i think is going to determine what kind of national security. is it more mike flynn or more mattis? i think that's going to be an important character trait of the secretary of state. >> and no mention by kellyanne
5:35 am
conway of o rudy giuliani. >> i think she did. that was part of the list. >> but not as like, it's come down to -- he was just one of the group. >> david, thank you for "the bottom line." the future of safety in america, a wave of road-weary civilians fleeing aleppo. in this humanitarian crisis, you see the potential for the next generation of those who are so oppressed that extremism may become a vulnerability. we have a report from the battle zone, next. as after a dvt blood clot,ital i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots
5:36 am
and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

5:39 am
the humanitarian crisis in aleppo is getting worse. a wave of civilians trying to flee as syrian regime forces pound what's left of the city. cnn's senior international correspondent, fred pleitgen, has more on all of the lives caught in the cross fire. >> reporter: as the rebels increasingly lose their grip on aleppo, syrian armed forces continue to pound the besieged areas. many caught in the cross fire. we came to this front line crossing just as a man was being evacuated, claiming he was shot by rebels as he tried to flee.
5:40 am
they shot me as i was running out, he said. they don't allow anyone to get out. they said, are you going to the regime areas? the opposition strongly denies its fighters would harm civilians, but the rebels do acknowledge they won't be able to hold out in aleppo much longer. and that realization is leading to an avalanche of people trying to flee the rebel district. syrian troops throwing some bread, but not nearly enough to quell the hunger of the many who have been starving for months. the syrian military has made major advances once again in the past 24 hours, and we can see that as the army moves forward, more and more people are coming out of those former besieged areas. many of those fleeing, families with small children, struggling to carry the few belongings they were able to take. many overpowered by emotions. some with barely enough strength to walk. others too frail to walk at all.
5:41 am
the syrian army has amassed a massive force at this front line. the local commander with a clear message to the rebels. look at this scene, he says, surrender yourselves and drop your arms. come back to the country and hopefully our leadership will. but for now, the fight goes on. this family, one of the many to cross into government-controlled territory, now in safety, but still in agony. things used to be good, this elderly woman said. may god act out revenge on those who brought us these difficult circumstances and may god protect us. and sew a walk on. weak and traumatized, moving into an uncertain future. fred pleitgen, cnn, aleppo. >> it's just overwhelming. to see babies being carried in arms, to see grandmothers, it's just all so heart wrenching.
5:42 am
>> and the suggestion is not that these are bad people. they will become terrorists, but what we've seen time and time again, and many of us in this business have gone and lived and experiences, when people have nount, they're constantly in fear and they are oppressed by where they are, extremism can exploit those conditions to turn people to be sympathetic to their cause, by saying, we're the only ones who are here for you. and that's being done right now by isis and its affiliates to that population that is fleeing. and that's why you've got to keep your eye on it and help those people to have a better solution than going to that option. >> and that's why we have people -- cnn has people on the front lines, so we will show you more of that over the weekend and next week. meanwhile? >> how about five things to know for your new day. number one, donald trump defending his cabinet picks during a thank you rally last night. this, we can confirm that the president-elect will remain executive producer of his reality tv show, "celebrity apprentice." controversy, nontroversy, you

5:52 am
so motivated as these people are. these are people who -- they don't have -- it's not necessarily a special talent that they have. but they are just committed to helping other people. it's extraordinary. >> and the winner is? >> it's up to our viewers. we shall see. >> you don't know right now? >> no, i don't know. >> he giggles a lot. they say that's a sign of deception. >> is that right? it is. >> be sure to catch anderson' special "superhero: above and beyond" at 10:00 -- >> oh, it's at 10:00? i thought it was at 9:00. >> at 10:00 p.m. and don't miss the tenth annual -- >> that's why we brought out the big guns, kelly ripa. >> a good-looking couple. >> that will be live this sunday at 8:00 p.m. and we'll leave you with a quick -- >> it's live this year. >> it is live. >> you're learning a lot. >> anything could happen. >> here's a look at the nominees. >> they are the kind and the

comedians. here are some of the big punch lines from last night. >> hillary clinton made her first public appearance on capitol hill since that whole election thing today. she was in town to honor outgoing nevada senator, harry reid, and what an impression she made. she showed up in black leather from head to toe, like olivia newton john in the final scene of "grease." >> trump adviser kellyanne conway told reporters today that donald trump is a huge elton john fan. that can be cured, said mike pence. >> we are 43 days from the inauguration and donald trump continues to fill out his cabinet. watching trump pick these people is like watching your nanna get a sponge bath. you know it has to be done, but it's still upsetting. >> for his secretary of labor, president-elect trump has picked an executive from the fast food restaurant carl's jr. and
