thousands, tens of thousands, maybe a couple of hundred thousand people prepare to protest his presidency. good morning and welcome to "early start." >> today will be a big day in washington. it is saturday, january 21st. 5:00 a.m. in the east. i want to welcome our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. >> look at the beautiful capitol. a misty day. >> i think it's beautiful each and every morning and for the first time the sun is rising on a trump presidency and all the action moves from the capitol behind us to the white house to see what action he will be taking at that end of pennsylvania avenue. he wakes up for the first time in his new home. this is a government home. this is not a trump building. he's already taken his first actions in governing including signing an executive order. this will begin the dismantling of obamacare. the latest now from washington. >> reporter: on this first full day at the white house,
president trump is going to be heading to a national prayer service at the national cathedral in a little while and this is going to be a relatively light schedule compared to yesterday. a big, jam packed day that ended with three inaugural balls attended by the president and the first lady. first lady melania trump got a lot of attention for her outfits yesterday. many saw her outfit yesterday as a reference to jackie kennedy. president trump delivered a fiery speech focusing on america first very much in line with some of the themes we heard from him on the campaign trail but he painted a bleak picture of america. take a listen. >> mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities. rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the
landscape, the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. this american cornage stops right here and stops right now. >> and that use of the word carnage got a lot of attention. it's a an unusual word to use in an inaugural address. he also used words like robbed, stolen and trapped. but the president got into action. he promised to take meaningful action on day one and one was to sign an order involving obamacare. the order does direct agencies to minimize the financial impact of the law by interpreting the regulations in such a way as to help health providers and individuals and others manage the financial burden. that means they can waive or
defer or grant exemptions from or delay implementation of any provision that could cause problems for people. so that's the president trying to make good on his promise to dismantle obamacare and make it clear that he's going to do that. also there was action on capitol hill yesterday, the president's two first cabinet picks were approved by the senate by overwhelming votes. that is james mat tis as secretary of defense. >> they may not get another vote on a cabinet pick until monday. all right. thanks so much. >> you saw that powder blue suit. donald trump's wife and daughter drawing a lot of attention for their fashion choices. yesterday she wore a jaw dropping white gown. she worked on the dress herself with the designer.
>> if you guy dresses off the rack is there a category of jaw dropping and one section that's not jaw dropping? >> i think you don't just walk in at an inauguration with your handbag. yesterday she channelled jackie kennedy with this blue dress. she got a lot of credit for that one. >> she looked great. >> for the swearing in ceremony show chose a white pantsuit. and the whole family at these balls in varying shades of, you know, like gold tone, silver tones, all kinds of metal tones. >> much like the trump plane. >> exactly. they did not leave the gold -- >> you keep saying they get high marks. do people get low marks for what
they wear around an inauguration? >> i think they brought a lot of new york fashion here. when you look at the architecture of all the events it was very classic american and new york, i felt. >> i think people look great and i like the tuxes as well. >> i saw you out there on the parade route and you looked wonderful. >> i was going with something more warm, you know, with jaw droppingly warm is what i was wearing. >> let's bring our panel back. welcome, everybody. to stay on this subject, eugene, what i think is interesting is there is a picture now of the trump world. he has now -- he is the guy in washington and i think that there is a new tone that is being set even by, you know, the optics of this. you've got his daughter and her husband who will be a big part, we think, of his administration. his wife will go back tomorrow to new york, right? their son -- the ten-year-old is going to stay in new york for the next few months it's a whole
new team in town. >> it definitely is. one of the interesting things about when you elect a leader especially here in the united states, americans don't look at the president, they look at the family. you hear people who have very kind and emotional responses to michelle obama and the girls as well and you see that also with the trump family when you talk to a lot of the supporters and one of the things i find myself hearing often for people that voted for donald trump is that his whole image, his whole brand is very aspirational and it makes them feel like they too could have something good. maybe if they buy something from ivanka trump's line that maybe they too could get a grasp of what the trump family embodies. >> i was wearing a suit from men's wear house. >> one of the very first orders of business was to take the crimson drapes down and replace them with bright gold drapes. okay? like, there's a lot of things
they had to do yesterday, but they made sure that got done. >> first of all, the oval office, the decor in the oval office is actually i think always changed within those hours between one outgoing president and one incoming president so i think the fact it was changed in and of itself, not a surprise. i think -- didn't reagan have a similar setup to that? i'm not sure. but eugene, i want to pick up on something you said that was interesting. you talked about the trump brand being aspirational because if you look at the overall themes yesterday, people noticed it was bleak. people picked up on the american carnage line, people want to know where the hope, where the shining city on a hill is and eugene's take on it is that there are people who look at all that and say there is an element of aspiration. >> sure. i think that's fair and what i think trump does well is he brands himself. not just him but his family as well. they're international branders.
there's no reason they shouldn't take that skill and apply it to what they're doing now. people, you know, around the world have associated the trump brand with a high level of quality, elegance, refinement, you know, luxury, that's what they've been selling and that's what they did sell during the campaign during a lot of people. can they deliver that sort of high standard of living and that sort of image on the ground? >> a guy who lives in a marble tower is the -- is the hope for people who feel like they don't have any hope in the working class. >> but he needs her. by the way, i'm going to wear north face this weekend. he needs her. she softens her. >> ivanka or melania? >> both of them really. but having her so elegantly dressed near him softens his image a little. i think that's a plus. >> some of the theme from yesterday, more populous than
andrew jackson. there were nothing like what we heard. >> you talked about the free-throw press. >> andrew jackson rejoiced in the free press. >> i want to play a little bit more from donald trump yesterday. >> today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from washington, d.c. and giving it back to you, the people. >> again, and that was very high up in his speech after thanking the former presidents, he basically, you know, was slapping the former presidents and people on that stage. >> right. and i think starting today we're going to see how that's going to play out because of course he's got to staff this administration. 5,000 people. a lot of them are the washington power players and elites that he
keeps saying he's going to get rid of and then the other set are mostly billionaires, businessmen, investment guys, military guys. all right. so you've got these two competing power centers now in d.c. which one represents the little guy? i'm not really sure but it's going to be a struggle. >> and again, i still don't know and again, we're only hours into the presidency. i don't know if what is said and what is done will march hand in hand. you know, i'm not sure that the things he will do will necessarily be as purely populous as the words he says. we're going to take a quick break because even as president trump was taken the oath of office there were protests, really riots in some parts of the city. today we are expecting to see peaceful protests. tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands on their way here right now. we're live on a bus coming this way. that's next. >>psst. hey... where you going? we've got that thing! you know...diarrhea?
abdominal pain? but we said we'd be there... woap, who makes the decisions around here? it's me. don't think i'll make it. stomach again...send! if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea or ibs-d - a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi. a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with viberzi.

today, one day after the trump inauguration hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take part in the women's march on washington. it is the center piece of what is actually a global movement reacting against the trump presidency. marches and protests are planned today in cities across the country and really around the world. cnn is on the road this morning with one group of protesters. they are traveling by bus from new york city to washington. good morning. i met a lot of women yesterday on the street who is had already gotten here. they wanted to make sure they got here for 10:00 to begin the march. tell me about the women you're with today. >> reporter: yeah. the anticipation is building on this bus. everybody is sort of getting settled in. are we excited? >> yeah! >> reporter: everyone getting settled in as we're still in union square and we're leaving in five minutes to head down to washington, d.c. for that five
or six hour drive. this is one of many buses that are circling around union square at this point. several groups, women, men, families altogether getting ready for this historical marng. it's mothers bringing their daughters. it's people flying from other cities to join family members and to get on to a bus and get down to d.c. and join this march that really is ground breaking. a lot of people excited. we've got a lot to speak about. i've seen some signs already. what kind of stuff have we brought with us, guys? we're going to get that organized for the next time i see you, we really are just getting settled at this point. a jacket made with stitches. is this stitching? oh, this is like paint. there we go. but again, everyone's super excited and this isn't the only one. there are of course marches happening all around the united states, major cities and we are hoping for and we are looking forward to a peaceful march where all these women's voices
can be heard. >> specifically, what is their message? is there one unifying message? is it against donald trump? is it for something in particular? >> reporter: well, christine, i've been covering these protests for months now and the message hasn't changed. there's some people who -- this is something against trump. they don't want him to be our president. the other side, this is about unifying and speaking out against some of the things that now president said during his election and really just trying to stick together, let everyone know that their voices are heard and they don't believe in some of the things he's been saying throughout this election process. so really that message while it is unifying, it is different depending on who you ask. one thing i can say, though, is i've talked to so many people and they say not only are their voices going to be heard today, it's going to continue throughout these four years. they're not going to be quiet. that's for sure. >> all right. we'll check in with you again, bring some more props. we want to see what they're
going to be -- they have five hours to get all their stuff together before they get here. one of the women i was talking to yesterday, i said what is it in particular? why today on this first day of the trump presidency? and they said they don't want the world to forget all the things that they thought were ma son gist and wrong during the campaign and they don't want to have to normalize that behavior. >> this is not normal. there are usually protests around an inauguration but to have a giant march like this the day after is not something i've seen before. and jeugene, it's been an interesting place to be. especially in the city. you had people very supportive of donald trump. you also had those outbreaks of violence, but you have a lot of people here to protest him today. >> very much so. i was looking around the city and a lot of people are here for very different reasons. and you can't assume what page people are on until you talk to
them quite a bit. and some people are very supportive and have accepted the fact that donald trump is the next leader, the current leader of this country, but quite a few people are genuinely concerned that he's not going to prioritize issues related to women as much as they were hoping that hillary clinton would. and i think the thing that's most interesting is, it's not just a democratic thing, because we're seeing international protests. more than 100 protests globally who are concerned that there were issues in the rights of women globally will not be as much of a priority. >> it's interesting that some of them would have been coming to washington anyway at the first election of a female president. right? so there's probably a little bit of disappointment in that as well. i want to play a little sound from the luncheon yesterday. i think this was in the capitol hall and donald trump, the new president, he made a point of thanking the clintons, hillary clinton too, his formal rival.
>> i was very honored when i heard that president bill clinton and secretary hillary clinton was coming today. and i think it's appropriate to say -- and i'd like you to stand up. i'd like you to stand up. >> and that got a standing ovation. that got a standing ovation. i think some were surprised that he specifically pointed them out. >> it was a nice touch. i think it really was. at the same time it was inauguration day. you're supposed to do things like that. i think the bitterness will prevail and we're going to see some of that today in the protests. >> it was a nice message and it absolutely seemed genuine. >> i think so too. >> i think he did appreciate the fact that hillary clinton was there. it could have been delivered, that message as part of the inaugural address in front of the country and in front of the world and it often is. we've seen that in past inaugural addresses. he chose not to do that for whatever reason but it is interesting that he chose to do
it in a small, private lunch. one thing people are discussing today, josh, and i think it's more showing the picture is the difference in crowd size. donald trump leading up to this had been calling on people to come to this. it doesn't look like they broke any records with the crowds. if you look at the difference with president obama's inauguration in 2009 -- >> you can see that line down the middle so that's president obama's in 2009 and now we're going to put a line down the middle and you're going to see -- that's what it looked like. so along the mall there were empty spaces this time around. and that's the comparison between the two. >> it wasn't just along the mall. i was walking around the city all day yesterday. compared to 2009 and 2013, by the way, the crowds were objectively smaller and inside those crowds there were just as many people who were against trump as there were for him and that's not a judgment of trump presidency. that's just the facts as you walked around. it's undeniable. what does that mean?
i think it means in 2009, barack obama was a candidate that people were voting for and in 2016 it was a lot of people who were sort of voting for trump and holding their nose, people voting yes for hillary clinton, there were a lot of people from outside the east coast who would have to travel a lot farther to get here so maybe that was a burden. it was during the week, so if you're a trump supporter who has got an hourly job you might not be able to make the trip, so i think there were a variety of reasons that the crowds were much, much smaller but there's no doubt they were much, much smaller. >> let's leave it right there. there's a lot more to talk about including the economy of donald trump. some of the tail winds that the new president can feel pretty good about. that's next.
all right. the obama economy is now the trump economy. here's a look at what president trump inherits in his first full day in office. the latest reading on economic growth, 3.5% growth in the third quarter. look at the jobless rate at 4.7%. the labor market is creating 180,000 net new jobs each month and home prices are up 5.1% over the last year. the president's job plan was updated. president trump promises to create 25 million jobs. that would be more than any president in history. another big promise to bring manufacturing jobs back to u.s.
shores. that's going to be tricky. the number of americans working in factories plunged during the recession. nearly 800,000 new manufacturing jobs have been added since the low in 2010, but we have been talking about automation and technology and productivity and when you talk to ceos they say they have manufacturing jobs open today but they don't have the labor to fill it. that will be a policy challenge for this president who wants to bring jobs back. he's got to make sure the american work force can move to where those jobs are. >> the interesting thing about the numbers at the beginning is those are numbers that are signs that the economy is doing well. signs that things are good, signs that things may be in contrast to the american carnage that the president talked about yesterday. that's not to say there aren't problems in some places but it is to say that in some ways it is a strong economy.
26 minutes after the hour right now. donald trump is the president of the united states. he's waking up in the white house right now. good morning, mr. president. we expect you probably are watching. we're going to talk about what his message was to the country yesterday and what he plans to do today. what's the best way to get two servings of veggies? v8 or a powdered drink? ready, go. ahhhhhhhh! shake! shake! shake! shake! shake! done! you gotta shake it! i shake it! glad i had a v8. the original way to fuel your day.
washington for a huge, huge protest rally. welcome back to "early start," everybody. >> what a beautiful view at the capitol, folks. look at the misty predawn here in washington, d.c. it is 30 minutes past the hour. we welcome all of our viewers here in the u.s. and around the world. donald trump is getting ready for his first full day as president and perhaps recovering from a long inauguration day. it started with the swearing in ceremony at the capitol, moved on to the parade down pennsylvania avenue and then to a series of inaugural balls and the first official actions of his administration. those included signing an executive order to begin the dismantling of obamacare among other things. >> reporter: well, on the president's first full day at the white house he's going to be attending a prayer service at the national cathedral. but it's a relatively light
schedule compared to yesterday. a big jam packed day that ended with three inaugural balls, the president and first lady attended and the first lady is getting a lot of attention around her outfit choices starting with that powder blue ralph lauren jackie kennedyesque outfit that she wore during the day to the inauguration ceremony where her husband delivered a big populist themed address. another way he was in line with campaign trail rhetoric is that he painted a pretty bleak picture of america. let's listen to some of what he had to say. >> mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape, the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
this american carnage stops right here and stops right now. >> and that use of the word carnage was something that was noted. it's not a word you often here in inaugural addresses. he also used words like robbed, stolen, trapped, very much in line from what we heard from him on the campaign trail. after the speech and after the parade he did get straight to work as he promised before the inauguration. president-elect trump said he would take meaningful action on day one. among those actions is signing an executive order dealing with obamacare. the order doesn't get rid of the law. congress is already at work on dismantling that, but what it does do is it directs agencies to interpret regulations as loosely as allowed under the law to minimize the financial burden on individuals, on insurers, on health care providers and the like. that means they can defer or grant exemptions from or delay
implementation of any regulation of obamacare that imposes a burden. so there the president trying to make good on a promise to take care of obamacare on day one. there was also action on capitol hill on two nominees to the cabinet. his first two nominees confirmed by big votes in the senate. that's james mattis and retired marine general john kelly who will lead the department of homeland security. so a lot of action yesterday. back to you guys. >> i would say so. thanks so much for that. you heard her talk about that powder blue ralph lauren dress. donald trump's wife melania and his daughter ivanka drawing a lot of attention for their fashion choices. >> melania trump wore this jaw dropping white gown. she worked on the dress herself with the former creative director -- >> it's an architecture design,
i'm told. >> earlier in the day she channelled jackie kennedy with this sky blue ralph lauren cashmere jacket and turtle neck dress. ivanka trump, the 35-year-old daughter of the president stunned last night's liberty ball in this gold carley that herrera ball gown. >> did you say it was bedazzled? we're not seeing it right now. >> there you go, on the right. the sleeves were bejewelled. >> is it bedazzled or bejewelled? or can it be both? >> i don't think you bedazzle these gowns. for the swearing in ceremony she wore a pantsuit. even her green outfit that she wore on the way in got a lot of attention. it was a green coat and it was really nice. >> we like it when you change your outfit at least once a week. >> apparently it's a thing,
changing outfits several times a day. >> everyone looked great. >> but let's bring in our panel. i think it painted a picture of the new team in town. a little bit of new york style. right? and i heard the word camelot a couple of times yesterday. i think it's early to say that the jackie kennedyesque blue dress is going to usher in like a period of maybe new fashion in washington, but michelle obama had high marks for her fashion. she was sort of the fashion of the people j. crew. you remember? >> yes, very interesting. michelle obama i think wore jason woo who is an american designer that she put on the market. >> she's worn that before. >> so the reality is this is good for business and what donald trump has consistently said is he will be good for business and it's looking like all business. right? the design, trade, development, we'll see. >> you gave me a good segway though because donald trump claims he won't be good for
business as usual. you see what i did there? >> very well. you have a future in broadcasting. >> as he was standing behind us on the capitol steps after thanking the former presidents of the united states, acknowledging, you know, the washington leadership around him, he proceeded to trash them directly, more than symbolically saying that they've been enriching themselves at the expense of the american people. listen to what the president said yesterday. >> washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. their victories have not been your victories. their triumphs have not been your triumphs and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. >> i have to believe, josh, that resonated with a lot of people. people love to hate politicians and they love to hate washington, but donald trump
didn't draw a distinction. the president didn't draw a distinction between republicans and democrats and republicans have controlled congress now. >> that's right. first of all we should say there's a bit of truth to what he said. there is corruption in washington. sort of the way the town does business has sort of become disconnected from the real needs and as spir ratiopirations arou country. that's part of why he got elected. given now as president if he's going to implement that agenda he needs washington to do it. he needs republicans and democrats sometimes and all these bureaucracies around town that are working for him but are career people, who live in washington their whole lives and who care about national security and jobs to be on his team. that's the only way he's going to get this job done and he keeps insulting these people. and those are the people i talked to. those are the people who are washington, you know, insiders
that he is railing against, that he's trying to replace with washington outsiders and eventually he's going to have to square that circle. he's going to have to figure out if he wants washington's help to do what he wants to do or if he wants to fight us all the time. >> i was talking to the outgoing commerce secretary and she had advised wilbur ross who we assume will be confirmed for that position. she said i came in with private sector experience but you're going to need people who know how washington works or you're not going to get anything done. >> but in listening to that speech, i think bernie sanders could have delivered most of that speech. very anti establishment, very anti free trade, wants to spend a lot of money on infrastructure. this was such a populous speech that certain democrats could have made it. >> i agree in terms of some of the message and some of the people that have been left behind the target may have been similar but the way it was delivered i kept on thinking
about the ad from bernie sanders playing the paul simon music "i've gone to look for america" which is a hopeful song. american carnage, you couldn't set that song to a lyrics about american carnage. >> bernie sanders won the michigan primary against hillary and i thought that sent a really important message. we should have paid more attention to that victory he had by emphasizing how things are not good. i think there's a connection. how ironic the republicans now have the mantle of the populist party. >> what was in there for conservatives? that wasn't a republican speech. >> there was some national security stuff. there was quite a bit what i would have thought was pessimism and i don't think conservatives or liberals are interested in that. i think what people overall would like to see is what direction donald trump will take this country and that will benefit everyone, not just people in those states that backed him and there wasn't a lot of that.
>> on the record saying i will never let you down. that's a high bar. he will never let you down. and we're going to take that literally, seriously and literally. >> in every which way. >> even as trump was taking the oath a big protest unfolded around washington and now thousands, maybe tens of thousands are going to descend on the capital. we're live on a bus heading to d.c. next. be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin.

welcome back. today one day after the trump inauguration, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take part in the women's march on washington. marchers and protests planned across the country and around the world. want to bring back our panel. i met some of these women and men yesterday who were already sort of gathering for this. >> they're all around the city. you don't have to look hard for them. >> right here, some matching t-shirts, matching hats and that's something that's going to get underway here later today. there was a moment yesterday when donald trump was trying to be inclusive, i think, talking about a new national pride. a lot has been made about this particular moment in his speech. listen. >> a new national pride will lift our sights and heal our divisions. it's time to remember that old
wisdom, our soldiers who will never forget that whether we are black or brown or white we all bleed the same red blood of patriots. >> josh, was that the inclusion that so many people said we needed yesterday? the bridging the divide. >> first of all, let's hope it doesn't come to that. that we don't have to bleed to figure out we're all the same. this is a distinct message of unity. it's a nationalistic one. it means we can all unify if you agree with me, right? here's what i'm going to do. i've been elected president, i've got all these people behind me. if you're on board then great. let's unify. that's not the same thing as reaching out, compromising, acknowledging the real concerns of real americans who don't agree with the president. it's not the same as mentioning your opponent which he could have done in the speech. it's not the same as mentioning the democrats or muslims or refugees, hispanics, all the other people he offended so it's
a -- something of an olive branch but it's a really trump specific one and that's going to leave a lot of people unsatisfied. >> i don't think it was questionable that it was a remarkable speech. i don't have any doubt it was an effective speech in terms of delivering the message that he wanted to send because it was crystal clear what message he wanted to send. greg, a question is, because you can accept both of those things is, did this inaugural address win support -- any additional support for donald trump or bring anyone closer to his line of thinking? >> maybe not. i think his base had to be thrilled. it was red meat for the base and i think his base will never desert him, but i don't think he widened his support. one other quick point i'd make. i think the democrats run a risk of looking too obstructionist and too negative. all the democrats who stayed away, schumer's got to be careful. there's a fine line here between being opponents and being
strictly obstructionists and the public would get that. >> can i ask one question? because we have josh here who devils in the intel community. one thing it did obstruct was the cia director. >> pompei will get in. rex tillerson will get in. it's very hard to keep national security officials out of these jobs. as the trump administration sends what they call teams to go take over all of these agencies, you've got all these people that are still there. the real national security issues at play. so everyone on capitol hill realizes you can't play games and keep these very senior national security positions vacant for too long because you're just inviting a disaster, so the -- although it will get worked out the question is, what happens when the trump people and the other national security people who don't like trump are sitting in the same room and now they've got to deal with a
crisis and if history's any guide there will be a crisis pretty soon. >> we think his money team is going to get in. do you think that the democrats are going to continue to try to slow this process down? >> absolutely. in part because they're in a rebuilding phase and they're trying to convince the american people that they didn't completely lose and that they too have a vision for america that they think will lift people up who were more attracted to donald trump's speech, but without rejecting the people who felt very much offended by donald trump and we're looking now at who's going to be the next leader of the democratic party and in what direction are they going to take it. >> the challenge for them is to show why they slow things down when they do it and i was bringing up mike pompeo because i'm not sure what they win by delaying that three days. they want more information from rex tillerson, but mike pompeo says -- seems like they were
trying to prove that they can muck things up. >> going to be a show trial for much of these nominees. i agree. just about every nominee may make it. the only one i might question is puzder. this may not be what he signed up for. i think all the other ones will make it. if the democrats make it a show trial it could be a blessing and a plus for them. >> the company has had labor violations levied against it and there are workers there that have been -- unions and progressives who have been very vocal hammering him in the last week or so saying this is not somebody that should be involved in protecting workers. he's not someone who believes in a higher minimum wage. so that's the image there, but you know, i'm told that the trump team wants to fight that out. they want to -- they want to come out fighting. they want him. >> john king was reporting from some republicans and some
insider business people that he didn't like the beating he was taking in the public from some of these groups or just politicians. there are a lot of times politicians who are comfortable in the rough and tumble. sometimes when you're the top of that business tier you're not used to people going after you like that. >> and one reason they might want to move pompeo to monday, is so people could tune in and see this. >> i mean, the problem is not with pompeo. it's with the president's attitude toward the intelligence community and the republican leadersh leadership's willingness or unwillingness to pursue the investigation into the russian hacking of the election. >> we're going to go to -- if we can, just to the lincoln tunnel right now. i believe we're in new jersey on a bus with people coming to washington to be part of this women's march today. what are they saying? >> reporter: yeah, you're
absolutely right. we went lu through the lincoln tunnel. we've got about 55 people on this bus and there's one in front of us with another 55 people. this is just one group. there were buses lined up all around union square in new york city with women, with men, with children getting ready to board and head to d.c. a lot of excitement about what's about to happen later today. i want to bring in caroline ortiz. she's here with her long horn shirt here. what struck me about you -- >> you know, they say the light at the end of the tunnel is new jersey. we lost that -- >> blame it on the turnpike. >> look, we'll try to get back to her in a minute, but you know, we're expecting -- i was seeing 200,000. i think we have no idea how many people are going to show up today in the capital, but we'll be watching that very, very
closely. all right. one of donald trump's first moves as president could be making buying a home more expensive. we'll tell you what obama policy he is rolling back. that's next. and hair this nourished? garnier nutrisse ultra color. with avocado, olive and shea oils. it nourishes hair to boost color. from dull brown to our bluest black. nutrisse ultra color. nourished hair. bolder color. hey, ready foyeah. big meeting? >>uh, hello!? a meeting? it's a big one. too bad. we are double booked: diarrhea and abdominal pain. why don't you start without me? oh. yeah. if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi, a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new
or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had: pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with viberzi. we're doing the wave! htaking off with me!y! for 42 minutes he's been trying to bring an entire stadium to its feet. you missed it, buddy. it's all good. and much like this hero, courtyard is all about the game. one, two, three... waaaaave!
one of president trump's first moves in office, suspending a cut to the federal housing administration's mortgage premium. the obama administration announced that reduction last week. it would have lowered insurance rates by 18.5%. these are people who get fha back loans. putting 3 to 5% down. this would have made it easier for them to buy a home, less expensive. the obama administration said the insurance pool was well funded so it was passing gains down to borrowers. senate majority leader chuck schumer ripped those back and he said it's going to make
americans of modest means to own a home. why would he take those away? they want to keep the additional government revenue? housing secretary ben car son told lawmakers in his confirmation hearings he would closely examine the policy. it could be because they're trying to undo all the things the obama administration did. >> i want to get closing thoughts on what we saw yesterday and what we'll see today. >> donald trump declared war on washington, the town in which he lives and the government he now runs. washington has a way of fighting back and today begins that battle and it could go either way. >> will he engage in war. that's my question. >> more emphasis on american first and we'll hopefully get some answers soon about whether or not america first means america only and how that will affect other economies. >> greg? >> well, for the markets i think the economy continues to look good. labor market continues to tighten. the main point i would make is
that on every issue you can think of, cabinet nominees, obamacare, tax reform, trump has the votes. >> has the votes. quickly, does he -- this -- making these companies or asking these companies to keep jobs here, is that working? do people think that is real change? >> i think it's good pr. >> i don't think there's anything wrong. who could argue with a chief executive that can call a company and say keep the jobs here. >> no president has ever done that. before. that's it from washington. thank you all for being here for this very special "early start." "new day" spikes up right now. >> this american carnage stops right now. it's going to be only america first. >> it took only an hour for his actions to ring hollow.
>> i will fight for you and i will never let you down. >> tens of thousands of people are getting ready to descend on the capital. >> the women's march is a gesture of our commitment. >> we are transferring power back to you, the people. together, we will make america great again. >> announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states around the world. saturday, january 21st, 6:00 here in washington. boy are things different now, up first donald trump begins his presidency, vowed to end american carnage. a heady populous.
