get right to some of the joy that people expressed in remembering her including luke skywalker himself. at first he was almost speechless and then a very thoughtful bit of social media last night. he talked about everything that she did. i'm grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness. even the bratty self-indulging crap that my beloved space twin gave me through the years. let's reflect on the life and times of carrie fisher. >> i should expect you -- >> reporter: carrie fisher best known as princess leia in "star wars" has died. fisher had a heart attack friday on the final 15 minutes of a flight from london to los angeles. according to tmz, fisher was on a ventilator the entire time she was hospitalized, never regaining consciousness. she's seen here in audition tape with soon to be co-star harrison ford. >> safely delivered to my forces. ♪ >> reporter: critics pointed to the strong chemistry between
fisher and ford and with good reason. fisher recently revealed that she and ford were off-screen lovers. >> 40 years, is that right? >> 40 years i thought i'd wait. >> you revealed that you were having an affair with harrison ford. >> i was. >> well, you say it. >> yes, i did. >> so, how did that stay a secret for 40 years? >> i was good at that, wasn't i? >> reporter: fisher was born in beverly hills, mother debbie reynolds and father singer eddie fisher. >> i was primarily brought up by my mother, but i saw my father. >> reporter: fisher poked fun at the absurdities of show biz life and including taking pills to control her emotions. >> any mood stabilizer is a weight gainer. whether you feel better, but then you're fat. so what you gain is a loss. it's not a good situation. >> reporter: fisher spoke about being bipolar and often turned pain into humor also writing
"wishful drinking" and "shopaholic." she gave birth from her relationship with brian lorde. she debuted in the acclaimed film "shampoo." >> i'm nothing like my mother. >> reporter: in between the "star wars" movies she had meaty roles. and as meg ryan's wise-cracking friend in "when harry met sally." >> someone is staring at you. >> reporter: but nothing could or would loom larger on screen than fisher in "star wars." >> transported you. it was extraordinary entertainment filmmaking. >> do you like the princess? >> i have her over sometimes. she's a little -- >> reporter: carrie fisher was 60. >> as can only happen in hollywood y was speaking with fans on the hollywood walk of fame when a man dressed as darth vader said he had a life-long crush on princess leia and thus carrie fisher. >> i agree, i do, too.
>> paul, thank you so much. what a woman. what do you remember most? >> besides the cinnamon buns. i really liked her role in soap dish. i thought it was fun. but what i liked about her was that when she wasn't the lead character. she is a great character actress that she took the person who was the lead actress or actor and prop them up and gave them something to bounce off of, which was, you know, the mark of a great actress. >> also this brilliant writer and it's a lot of the things that she was not credited for. who really knew? i didn't know until i was reading about her in the past few days that she was a script doctor to "empire strikes back" and "hook" and it is hard for women in hollywood after 27. i'm not going to wait by the phone. look at all the work she did off screen. >> i like she embraced that role, as well. so many actress and actresses become famous for many roles and then resent it. but she embraced it, which is
what you should do. not often does that happen to anyone in hollywood. coming up on "new day" we will talk to two of carrie fisher "star wars" co-stars. both men will join us live in our next hour. turning to politics. president-elect donald trump tapping a former bush aide as a top counterterrorism adviser, but a scare in trump tower in manhattan. a fiery battle over who will pay to protect the president-elect when he is in new york city. cnn senior washington correspondent jeff zellemy is in florida with more. good morning. >> good morning, poppy. donald trump is rounding out his cabinet and potentially naming the two open positions yet this week. but even as he looks ahead towards his presidency, now just 23 days away, he is looking back at his campaign taking aim at president obama, once again, on twitter. amid an extraordinary exchange among staff members about the security costs at trump tower.
donald trump is filling a critical west wing position. tapping thomas bossert, a deputy homeland security in george w. bush's white house to be his chief adviser on homeland security, counterterrorism and cybersecurity. >> the government in the united states at a federal level needs to do something to address the threat. >> reporter: he will work alongside retired lieutenant general michael flynn who trump picked at national security adviser. bossert will be on equal footing with flynn. bossert's appointment has some establishment republicans breathing a sigh of relief because flynn's appointment stirred controversy. yet, an interesting selection for trump, who became a sharp critic of the iraq war after initially supporting it. >> look at the war in iraq and the mess we're in. i would never have handled it that way. >> reporter: bossert was a
proponent of the iraq war. trump is set to hold more meetings today at his mar-a-lago resort. the trump tower in new york was briefly evacuated last night while the president-elect was in florida. a suspicious package that turned out to be a bag of toys caused a security scare. the false alarm highlighting a battle over who will pay to protect trump and his family in new york city, which the mayor estimates to be around $35 million since he was elected. trump's incoming white house press secretary sean spicer tweeting shortly after the incident, back to work here at trump tower after a false alarm. thanks nypd. eric philips, a spokesman for new york mayor bill de blasio tweeting, no problem. we'll send you the bill. trump's social media director weighing in that philips is an embarrassment to the new york mayor's office and amazing nypd. philips firing back, that's not very nice, dan. but about that bill. work on it with us.
that wasn't the only attack on twitter. trump touting his victory over clinton while taking a knock at the man he will succeed. president obama campaigned hard and personally in the very important swing states and lost. the voters wanted to make america great again. trump also taking to twitter to take credit for strong economic news. look at this tweet he sent out last night. he said consumer confidence here in the u.s. is at a 15-year high. he signed it, thanks, donald. even though he did that in the third person. thanks, donald. perhaps there wasn't room to also say, thanks, obama. president-elect trump is inheriting the obama economy. >> only 140 characters, jeff. that's don's favorite part. thanks, donald. all right, let's bring in our panel. cnn senior political analyst ron brownstein and "washington
examiner" reporter selena zito. >> put down the tweeter machine. >> it works. look how much time all of us in the media spend responding. now potentially as president is has proved to be a real weapon for him. a lot of headaches and spends a lot of time on something he wants us to spend time on. >> if i was news executive, i would cover his tweets. i said i would be more judicious about it. but, really, i think that, do you think we should be more judicious -- because i'm sure some things that people tweet and donald trump tweets. >> look, historically, everything the president of the united states says is news. and i think this is a new way of saying it. but, being aware that what he is doing is often is try to drive a dialogue in a certain direction, that is a reality. i think you can't ignore it. but maybe he needs to be kept in better perspective. >> let's talk about some of the tweets not from the
president-elect, but with his team here with new york city. mayor de blasio asked to cover the cost to protect the president-elect when he is here. obviously, we know his wife and youngest son will stay here at least through the end of the school year. the question is who is going to pay for it and who should pay for it? where do you stand? >> one of the most interesting thing about the trump tower, when he has the money and work would the city to build it, the lobby was to remain a public space. so, that's why people are coming and going through there. even though the president -- under other circumstances, you might not be able to enter that space. so, i think what's going to happen is there's just going to continue to be this public fight between de blasio and trump's team. honestly, they both probably think it benefits both camps. so, i don't think it's going to stop. i think that new york will probably end up getting -- >> and florida. florida wants money for
mar-a-lago protection. >> absolutely. i don't know what the end result is going to be. you know, we're entering new territory. but i think it probably benefits both camps to have these, you know, sort of fighting words. >> ron, i've heard people say, you know, since it's costing the city of new york $500,000 a day and also costing florida. that maybe donald trump and the transition team should move to washington which is built for secret service and that sort of thing. >> i think that's the underlying issue. it seems he is committed to spending potentially more time out of washington. barack obama did not go to chicago every weekend. and, you know, the potential for donald trump with his family staying in new york to spend a significant amount of time outside of washington seems greater than for other presidents. i think it may require the federal government to respond in some way to the financial obligation. there is a political posturing each side against the other. donald trump lost 90% of the
vote in the borough that is being charged with protecting him. and there is a deeper underlying issue. the president of the united states, you know, the federal government ought to be shouldering, i think, the principle burden for protecting the president of the united states. >> isn't that the extra 3% we pay in new york city to go towards? taxes are fun. selena, let me ask you about this big "washington post" headline today. obama administration is announcing different sanctions including covert action and diplomatic center against russia soon. they have 23 days left. the question is, what does president-elect donald trump do when he is the president? let's listen to how his republican colleagues in the senate address this issue of how to respond to russian hacking yesterday with jim sciutto. >> there are 100 united states senators. amy is on this trip with us. she's a democrat from minnesota. i would say that 99 of us believe the russians did this and we're going to do something
about it. along with senator mccain after this trip's over. we're going to have the hearings and put sanctions together that hit putin as an individual and inner circle for interfering in our election. and they're doing it all over the world, not just in the united states. >> it's basically a message, basically, selena, to the president-elect. you're on a totally different page than the republican-led congress. >> you know, lindsey graham is probably always going to be that guy that will come out against trump on every measure that they disagree with. you know, i think it was trump that famously gave his cell phone number out when he was running against him. you know, mr. trump is going to find out once he gets to washington that there are three branches of government and, you know, he's going to have to deal with the senate. you know, trump will likely have learned from his dealings on how
he dealt with kahn, the goldstar family after the dnc convention. if he digs a hole on certain issues, it is not going to play out very well. i suspect when he gets to washington and this becomes an issue, that he will either defer to maybe reince priebus to deal with it or maybe just not address it at all. since he doesn't talk with the press at this moment, hoe might not have to and he might just ignore it. >> one thing that is worth discussing is he talked about it being done else where. we have big elections coming in 2017 in germany and france. if you are sitting there as vladimir putin you look at the playbook in the u.s. and say this is a pretty effective playbook to introduce turmoil into other country's election. if his goal seem to pull up from both sides of the atlantic and support for populous right parties in the german and french elections have the threat of doing that. what is interesting is that for
their own reasons the trump administration may be more sympathetic to those parties. >> to that end, let's quickly listen to what president obama said yesterday in these remarks with president abe of japan about -- that a lot of people saw as a veiled reference to the president-elect. >> it is here that we remember that even when hatred burns hottest. even when the tug of tribalism is at its most primal, we must resist the urge to turn inward. we must resist the urge to demonize those who are different. >> was that a swipe, selena, at the president-elect? and, if so, what happened to all that good will in the beginning? >> well, you know, president obama is a politician. all politicians make swipes. he is incredibly eloquent with his words. it was a way for him to get his job.
>> you think it was a swipe. >> absolutely. that's what politicians do. that's sort of why people liked trump because he didn't fancy up his swipes. he just goes out and says them, right? and president obama does it in a much more traditional sort of classy way, you know, of throwing without doing it directly. >> interesting point. how do you want your insalts ul delivered. >> the taunt can't last. >> thank you, guys. a lot of news to get to this morning, including secretary of state john kerry who set to outline his vision and his road map for middle east peace today. this with only 23 days left in the obama administration. question on the timing. what impact will this message have give on the very strained relations between the united states and israel. that's next. volunteer for meals on wheels. we had an instant connection. what was that? i said, "delivering to you is always a special treat." oh. company, companionship, food... we all need those things.

obama administration's vision for peace in the middle east. let's discuss now with israel's ambassador to the united nations. thank you for joining us this morning. let's start with that. what do you think john kerry is going to say when he makes -- when he delivers his speech? >> truly speak about -- we don't need another speech and another u.n. resolution. we need palestinians to come to the table and negotiate with either. and after the shameful resolution, we are skeptical about it. because the palestinians today, they say we don't need to negotiate with israel. we can come to the u.n. and pass negotiations without even negotiating. >> the palestinians have said they will not come to the table, as long as settlements are on the table. is that enough to get the settlements to stop? >> when you negotiate, you negotiate. results of the negotiations without entering the room. you know how many hours prime minister benjamin netanyahu sat
the last eight years to negotiate? less than seven hours. so, it's not serious. you need to come down and negotiate without precondition. we have a lot to ask for them to stop the incitement to condemn terrorism. we have a lot to ask and demand. we tell them, sit down and negotiate. >> i spoke yesterday and she said basically she believes that this is a land grabbed by israel. listen to this. >> that also increasing house demolitions for the palestinians, theft of resources and they put up even more checkpoints and created the siege of palestinian towns and villages. this is a sort of revenge. >> she says it's revenge. >> we have heard that. but approved of capable of making peace. we have signed an agreement with jordan. but we negotiated. and we tell them, stop with the incitement and come to the
studio and speak against israel. come to the room in jerusalem or in new york and let's talk peace without going to the u.n. and the resolution. >> the question is is this has been, these settlements have been declared by the nations. 14-0 by most of the world. repeatedly condemn these settlements. why is this happening and you're concerned that this paperwork is in place, but it's been condebe. >> we are willing to negotiate everything when we come to negotiate. but the fact that the u.n. will decide about the outcome of the negotiations, how can you achieve peace that way? i'm waiting to see what secretary kerry will say this morning. but how can you achieve peace without allowing the palestinians to negotiate? what will happen after the negotiations? we live in israel with the palestinians but in order to live together, we need to sit down and negotiate. >> you are saying sit down and negotiate and everybody needs to come to the table. but netanyahu is cutting ties
with the allies and cutting ties with all these united nations. >> no one is cutting ties. we are disappointed. we are disappointed from the administration here in washington. >> suspended working ties. >> listen, we are working with all our friends in the world, but we are disappointed because when you reach that resolution, it's so one sided. actually no connection between jews and jerusalem. and the faith of the jewish people, it's illegal occupied by israel. it's ridiculous. if you voted for -- >> that's not what international law says. it's not what the geneva convention says. >> that's disputed. when you read the resolution it says we have no connection to that part of jerusalem. when you look at the history of the jewish people, for decades. we continue to -- >> since negotiations for two-state resolution started in 1967, it's always been said that jerusalem has negotiated the
exact territory of jerusalem. why is it different now? why is that now off the table? >> it's not off the table. for us, jerusalem is the united capital of israel, period. when you come to the u.n. and you pass such a ridiculous resolution and you actually tell the palestinians, don't bother to negotiate with israelis and i think in the future administration and we hope that we will see a new approach when president trump will enter the white house. you should negotiate without us coming and telling you what to do. >> reporting that the two nations that were behind this were new zealand and england. and israeli officials are saying that they have iron clad information that it was america or the obama administration. what is that iron clad information? >> well, you read some reports of the media in egypt yesterday. we would present the information that we have to the trump administration. but you can -- >> why present it to the trump administration when this is
happening now. one president at a time here in the united states. if you have information that is showing that barack obama and this administration, there was some sort of conlution, why not present it now when they're in office? >> you can say a lot of things about us, but we're not stupid. we know the administration was behind this shameful resolution. it is fact. we expect our -- >> don't you have more leverage now when you're in office and, again, because in 23 days, donald trump will be the president of the united states. that's not going to change. if you have information and if you say so because this is, obviously, you have some sort f of -- you have an issue with the obama administration. if you want to embarrass them for, lack of a better word, why not do it when he's in office because what will it matter? >> i want to say what happened. >> if you want to prove there is collusi collusion, why not do it when he's the sitting president?
>> we will present it to the president and he will decide whether to expose it or not. >> by doing that, isn't it saying it is just fluster. if you have iron clad information and evidence, it would be out already. >> i will be very happy to come back to this studio maybe in a few months and you will see that information. i think the american people are not supporting this resolution. 88 senators approached the president and told him, apply the veto. don't leave israel by itself in the security council. but the u.s. is supporting those people against israel. >> the u.s. ambassador david friedman says that the capital should be moved from tel aviv to jerusalem. do you agree with that? >> absolutely. it is about time. the bill passed in congress many years ago. and in some same way we respect the capital of the u.s. and any other capital. we expect the same from the u.s. >> thank you, ambassador. >> thank you very much. president-elect donald trump's latest pick for his
administration says that he still supports america's role in the iraq war. he is just one adviser that is a bit at odds with mr. trump's views on a number of things. we'll dig into how that will affect his presidency, next. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. won't replace the full value of your totaled new car.

president-elect donald trump's transition team is nearly done making key appointments for the white house staff and cabinet. but with trump's many campaign promises how important is it for the views and the ideologies of this ining team to all be in lock step with their president? joining us now is "wall street journal" reporter daniel. look, this is the president-elect. he will be the president of all of america, all of us. you do see team of rivals whether it's from different parties or president obama clinton after the 2008 to be secretary of state. what you don't always see is so many cabinet picks that have been very public with different positions, damian, than the president-elect. let's take to some of them. rex tillerson, for example.
>> exactly. rex tillerson, the much publicized pick for secretary of state. the ceo of exxon mobile and has been pretty public about his views that human behavior does have an impact on climate change. you know, he says the science is still incomplete on what that impact is. but donald trump has kind of famously said that this whole climate change idea is a hoax, created by the chinese and that, you know, we need to focus more on creating jobs and less about, you know, those sort of solutions. so, that's an issue. that's one example where someone in his cabinet will have a different opinion. >> one pick that has not got an lot of attention, but the difference in policy and perspective between the two men is really critical to the american people as trump's pick representative mike mulvini. a guy opposed to raising the debt ceiling. trump wants to spend $1 trillion
on infrastructure and raise taxes. whose ideology is going to win out on something like this? >> i think this pick can be a disaster or brilliant. rick mulvaney even voted against the republican budgets in the house because didn't cut spending enough. now, he is going to be at war immediately with donald trump's proposal, like you said, to cut taxes steeply and increase all the infrastructure spending or help bring a lot of republicans from the house towards the sort of view point on fiscal spending. he could help, in other words, sell a lot of these votes to members of the house who otherwise would have been skeptical. >> so, one of the things you point out in your reporting that is really important is that a lot of the decisions made at some of these levels don't need presidential eproval. they wouldn't necessarily go up to the president. not just about differing ideologies but then the president makes the call. it is about the president
thinking one thing and then decisions being made below him that are not in lock step with that. >> that's exactly right. you know, obviously, we've seen president-elect trump be involved in some of these negotiations on boeing and lockheed martin. but no way that can continue on every single issue going forward. he will have to delegate a lot of responsibility to his cabinet officers and that will mean a lot of discretion for people and that's going to be a big test in the coming year. >> you bring up scott pruitt who is going to run the epa and this is a climate change denier. this is someone who is totally against these ethanol mandates. something that, you know, when trump was campaigning in iowa, he said i'm 100% behind these. you look at wilbur ross coming in as head of commerce secretary. someone who has been wildly supportive of ttp and free trade. is wilbur ross really going to say free trade is bad? >> well, i think donald trump
has proven to be very good at, you know, selling his viewpoint on how trade should change and i think a lot of his new cabinet members like wilbur ross at commerce will have an easier time getting behind his proposal to sort of tear up these trade deals and have a new approach. but the test is going to be when they have to put the pen to paper and come up with the specifics. is it going to be easy for these people to swallow these changes or kind of revert back to their old beliefs? >> one thing we often see is that new administrations generally keep at least someone, at least one, you know, sort of key position from the prior administration. bob gates of defense. they oftentimes will keep someone from an opposing party. we haven't seen either of those yet from the president-elect. do you think we will and who? he did say that he has taken some advice from president obama when it comes to some of these picks. >> you know, i think he considered several. obviously, he interviewed senator joe manchin and there
are very few spots left. just really agricultural and veterans affair and this director of national intelligence job. i think maybe the intention was there, but almost hard for him to do that now. >> talk about big picture. why it matters not just to have opposing views or parties or keeping someone on from the past administration. >> the criticism is that it a token gesture and they get in a position like transportation where they don't have a tremendous amount of input. i think it sends a signal to the rest of the country that it will be an inclusive administration even if it's a symbolic gesture that he wants to represent all viewpoints. obviously, i think we've seen that he is speaking to a lot of people from different parties and had an openness to do that. the question is whether that will be reflected in his policies going forward or democrats won't come to the table and he needs to forge ahead on his own. >> damian, thank you so much. thanks for delaying your ski trip for us. have fun. >> thanks so much. >> poppy, thank you. last week's deadly truck attack in berlin renewing terror

counterterrorism official. thank you, both, for joining us here on "new day." melissa, i will start with you because you have reported extensively on the increased security in paris. you are reporting that it was higher even before the berlin market attacks. give us a sense of the feeling on the ground there. >> i was at the french interior ministry yesterday, don, is it isn't a question of whether but how and when france will next be attacked. the mistake would be to become complacent. no attack on french soil since july. soon it will be six months. but that does not mean another attack is not due. they said the threat has never been higher. what has changed is france's ability to prevent attack. they point to the fact that 17 have been foiled in france this year alone. now, just behind me over my shoulder you can see there, down there already the crowds are pretty impressive.
those crowds are nothing, don, in what we will see in a few days time on saturday night when hundreds of thousands of people will be out there. once again, testing france's extra security measures. we now have 9,100 policemen on the streets of france helped by an extra 10,000 soldiers over the holiday period. will that be enough should another terrorist decide to strike? that is the question that france lives with every time one of these big gatherings is planned. >> phil, that is really the question. november marked the one-year anniversary of the cordinated attacks in paris. do you think that is enough security? >> it can't be enough security, don. look at what we're talking about over the past year. we're talking about attacks against airports, open-air markets as we saw in germany. attacks in trains. if you look at the variety of attacks we've seen and isis talking about more attacks on religious locations, including churches. i don't care how many police and security officials you put on
the streets, they're playing a game of defense. you can't defend across germany, france and other countries over the course of a year, two years, three years enough to prevent an attack. this goes back to the core question. how do the americans and others eventually work with the syrians and the russians to end the civil war because as long as there's a security vacuum in syria that isis can take advantage of, you'll see a ripple effect in europe. you can't stop this stuff, don. >> i want to know, melissa, from you, what has changed in paris since the attacks. we had brussels and nice and france and, of course, the attacker went through germany and france and then italy. paris extended its state of emergency until july of next year. what has changed now? >> well, there is, of course, this heightened security and also this growing frustration from security services. we have seen these unprecedented demonstrations on the part of police over the course of the last few weeks. men and women who were protesting going out on the streets and demonstrating in
wild cat demonstrations. not even organized by unions. going out armed while they are on duty and that really speaks to the level of their frustration and the fact that these forces have been stretched to breaking point and those demonstrations, i'm told by people within the police services are likely to pick up, again, after the new year. now, that is as far as the deployment on the ground goes. the other measure that you speak about which is the state of emergency has now been extended until next july. by then, don, it will have been in place for 20 months. an extraordinary measure that has become quite ordinary and, of course, it means the suspension of basic civics rights. people wonder how effective it is. the nature of the terrorist attack has simply changed. what we've seen is the last two major attacks on european soil have been against huge crowds of people with one man driving a truck into them. what a state of emergency can do to prevent that, what thousands,
tens of thousands of policemen and women around the country can do to prevent that is one of the questions facing european services at the moment. >> goes beyond paris. you have talked about the human cost of extended surveillance. how long can a city like paris handle this and other city tz, as well? >> i think it's misleading to suggest that this kind of surveillance can be extended over the course of an emergency that gets into two years. this is about deterrence. not about prevention. you put more people on the streets and hope that a 20-year-old inexperienced walks up to a tourist location and gets nervous because he sees more security officials around. but over the long term, you can't sustain this number of people on the ground. there's two things security professionals are going to ask for that they're not getting in here. number one is more resources. you don't have to do overtime every single day. and the second, the bigger question is, when the politicians get together and accept the reality that president assad is winning in syria and there will have to be a very difficult conversation about closing down the civil war
on syria so isis can inspire more of these attacks. you can't sustain this security step up in europe, don. >> thank you very much. we are taking stock of the stories that lit up your social media feed this year. up next, the top ten trending stories from an unprecedented 2016. wheat? in purina one true instinct grain free, real chicken is always #1. no corn, wheat or soy. support your active dog's whole body health with purina one.
