3:04 am
gregory, "washington post" reporter abby phillips. cnn contributor and reporter for the washington examiner, celina vi vi vitto. this is a rorschach test. saying no can match the fight of america. we were listening far back from the crowd we could hear it erupting and people clapping and responding to that, david? what do you think. >> i thought it was populist to the core. as we see with presidents and other elected people in office you get what you see on the campaign trail. i think he made it clear there is no pivot forthcoming every.
3:05 am
what you're getting with the speech half of the country liking what they hear. a lot of dark intonations are going to rub people including republicans. you're going to hear what trump said there's a market for what trump said. a lot of people feel left behind. they want the country to start looking out for him. i think trump's approach was not to try to heal wounds per se, but to say i'm going to get the job done. in doing that that's how i'm going to heal the country. >> a big part going forward is to figure out what kind of consistency we'll see. anybody who has studied trump knows these words new to him in this campaign but they are very familiar to steve bannon. what's that i heard, the breitbart man shining through in american carnage. >> how do you think that's going to play. >> let's play this one more time so you know what we're talking about. >> for too many of our citizens
3:06 am
a different reality exists. mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities. rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across our nation. this american carnage stops right here and stops right now. >> pretty dark vision of america. i think he's speak stog a lot of americans who are outside of the political process, who are hurting. who are outside of the economy. who aren't keeping pace with technology in our country and in the world. and in the workplace. and, so, i think this was not a philosophical speech. an ideological speech. this really was a hostile takeover. the idea that we're going to get back to taking care of the people. steve bannon, senior adviser talked about andrew jackson, that speck ter, the idea that
3:07 am
it's the people's power that matters so much. by talked about reagan an assault on business. that was not business, a as long as robust government being handed back to the people. that's what you really heard yesterday in very stark tones that's is going to invite a lot of scrutiny over this reality that trump sees. >> we all heard steve bannon. i heard roger ailes who has been an informal adviser at least to donald trump for many years. there be hearing some of the fox news mants tra there. he says the establishment has protected itself and not the citizens of the country. what we were hearing, so many applause lines that people responded to. what did you hear? >> people want to be a part of something bigger than nelms that's what he was offering. he wants action. he wants to take you somewhere else. and that word "carnage" i know a lot of people bristled at that. but if you take a drive.
3:08 am
i'm not just taking rural america. old cities like chicago heights, illinois, just devastated economically, they stand like stone sentinels, these abandoned homes. these abandoned factories. and nobody's sort of figured out how to reinvent the jobs there, you know, bridging technology with manufacturing. and instead, we blame trade. and so, there were a lot of people that contacted me, including democrats, who said that speech was strong. that causes me concern back in my district. because that -- bernie sanders could have said that. you know, that speak stos the people who still feel left behind. >> but the question is, there's no question they found a message that taps into a very deep meaning. the question is can they deliver on it. one of his first actions is to halt a payback to mortgageholders. if you're going to deliver back
3:09 am
to the people, the most direct way to do that is put money in their pocket and he halts it. why not give the mortgage rate back to citizens that obama signed. >> i saw the two executive actions in the first few hours just as a peace offering to conservatives. they were pretty much conservative orthodoxy. the idea is not to necessarily put money back in the pockets of consumers, but to shore up the government funds that the government has reserves to pay. >> it seem weird that the obama administration said we have some cash, let's give some back. >> i think trump were trying to send a message with those executive orders that woo not have been it. that was a peace offering to ideological conservatives who want him to rein in the government. who don't want the fha to go in making rules that they believe are unsound. i actually agree that the speech
3:10 am
was delivering a powerful message to people across party lines about the fact that the government isn't working for them. and that it should work -- it should work better. it was not a small government speech. this was a speech that was essentially saying the golf's job is to make sure you have a job. a lot of conservatives looked at that and said, that's what we're about. but that's what trump was about. he was not an ideologue. he was somebody who is saying i'm going to make this better for you, no matter what. and even if that means doing more that most republicans, five years ago, two years ago, 18 months ago would have said no way. >> this was really a tilt for ronald reagan who came in and said the government is a problem. and i'm going to get the government out of your way so you can flourish. the question is, can he deliver on these promises? so much disappointment, left and
3:11 am
right, athena has done a great job of chronicling it. trump made a lot of promises. if people feel like he hasn't delivered how disappointed will they be in a sense, the disappoint they felt in barack obama during his eight years. >> very quickly, let's look at the crowd. the contrast to previous inaugural -- people there were obviously very passionate. if you look at the -- 2009, president obama. you see the national mall there that whole piece of real estate filled with people. so this is yesterday, so not as big as 2009. obviously people were very passionate, but he didn't get the numbers of obama's historic -- >> it speaks to the division in the country. he did not win the popular vote which does not make him illegitimate in any way. but it shows that there are a lot of people supporting the outgoing president of barack obama. and a lot of americans for whom
3:12 am
america is actually working better than the folks cottoning to president trump now. you had the first african-american president who represented not only history for a lot of americas, but tremendous change in a time of war. people forget how ready for change americans were, republicans, after the real depths of the iraq war. >> probably a bigger team, too. >> again it speaks to the division of the country that trump is going to have to deal with. >> panel stick around. >> president trump takes office with only two cabinet secretaries for his first day. the senate did confirm two military generals, defense secretary james mattis is. homeland security secretary kelly is in. senate is stalling on the others. when will the president have
3:13 am
more of that confirmed, cnn's sunlen serfaty is there with the latest. >> good morning. they were both sworn in by vice president pence very quickly. president trump saying he's pleased that he now has two members of his cabinet in place. but this is still far shortly of what trump had wanted. he was hoping to have at least seven numbers in place already. notably, it's far fewer than president obama had on his inauguration day. trump also sending very specific wordings to the senate saying, quote, i call on the members of the senate to fulfill their congressional obligation and swiftly confirm the remainder of my highly qualified cabinet nominees so that we can get to work on behalf the american people without further delay. and they've been trying to slow down the process, setting up a lot of squabbling on capitol
3:14 am
hill. there was a flurry of delegations among senate leaders overnight. they're agreed to hold a confirm's vote for mike pompeo. also rex tillerson for secretary of state. he will get a committee vote on monday. that voter, alisyn, is expected to be razor close. >> thank you for that, sunlen. within hours as we've been assessing, donald trump signed his first executive order. what else will the president do in his first week in office? we discuss that, next. if you're told you have cancer, explore your treatment options with specialists who treat only cancer. every stage... every day.... at cancer treatment centers of america. learn more at

3:18 am
dismantling obamacare and raising new regulations. so, what else will he do, in the first days in office? we bring back david gregory, david drucker, abby phillips and salina vito. one of the things we hear, they know about the tombstones of fact tors, and they know it. that is squarely on donald trump's shoulders then he gave one speech in front of everybody. then he went into that lunch and gave a good talk. we're all going to be good friends, you're all good people. that's a different reality. how does that play out? >> i think what we're going to see almost immediately is tax reform and regulatory reform but we're also going to see infrastructure. that's where he can work across the island with people he wants, having lunch with him. and maybe doing some deals with
3:19 am
the democrats. probably won't get all of the republicans but he will be able to cobble together something that brings a bunch of different stakeholders into it. >> let me show a question into all of this i'm not so sure. i do believe a couple of things. i do believe that trump will do or try do what he says he's going to do. i think everybody is oh, wait, he's actually going to try to do this stuff? two, he's got a strong team that knows how to work on capitol hill. very strong vice president, reince priebus and republicans who can do the same. apparently, steve bannon very involved in these policy discussions. the question is do they have the ability to prioritize and tedea with, you know, engaging the opposition on capitol hill? and that could include republicans. if he wants to talk about
3:20 am
curving everybody with obamacare, he's going to have to expend a lot of lot of political capital with that. they'll see how they prioritize. >> abby, do we get clues how he's going to prioritize from the first things he said yesterday as executive action? >> i think so. health care is pretty much at the top of the list. any trump supporter that you talk to, that is literally the most important thing for him. he's so keenly aware of that. anytime he talks about that issue, he says, i want it done immediately and simultaneously. but that's where the rub is. republicans are not necessarily on board with any of those things. they don't necessarily want to do it immediately. they don't know necessarily if they can do it simultaneously. and there's just no way to really cover everybody in a way that's consistent with ideals, in a way that won't cost a lot of money. i don't think trump is going to back down from those things.
3:21 am
it's one of the most consistent things about him. he's been saying those things over and over again. republicans on the other hand, his aides, some of his top aides, are going to have to figure out how to make it work. we know he's not a micro manager of his staff. but he does weigh in when he feels like things are going off track. >> we can't. because he's never done anything like this in this life. so, that's a yes mark. you cover congress every day. you talk to these guys. this ain't reagan i keep hearing from gop leadership. he does not have as you all in his hands where we're so happy to be working with this new president. how does that play out in his ability to tell them what to do? >> well, it may be counterintuitive, but there's a reason why he does have them in his hands even though there's a stark difference. one, sort of in awe of how he won in michigan and pennsylvania. the holy grail of sorts, donald
3:22 am
trump did it. number two, they're in fear that he can go to social media, motivate his base. they all have primaries coming up in 2017. he's not a normal politician that will talk to the chief of staff and say back off giving the president problems. another thing, they are so excited that they actually have an opportunity to pass conservative policy even though trump is not conservative. if they can roll the dice, if they can do tax reform, why are we going to mess that up. one of the things i'm look for will there be major changes from the white house on foreign policy and how will republicans act on the hill because there are differences. they keep telling us, no, no, no, this is what trump really means on foreign policy. we'll see how that goes. >> we saw yesterday, the two cabinet picks confirmed. no surprise. these are popular ones. >> and important ones.
3:23 am
>> homeland security. and any stumbling blocks ahead? >> not that i can see. i know he really wanted to get his cia director in yesterday. he wanted to sort of send this message by going there monday, visiting with them. >> why didn't he get that yesterday? >> there were a couple of stalls. i forgot who -- >> scheduling stalls? >> no. >> they want more debate. >> you know, it's not unprecedented to not have your cia director. i think that hayden was obama's director until february. so, that does take time. >> but the america first principle that harkens back to the pre-world war ii era really speaks to how president trump wants america to engage with the rest of the world. >> although he said he doesn't
3:24 am
need a lindburg america first. >> right. but what he's talking about is the retreat of america in the international order and really picking and choosing how we get involved and how that plays out first. mattis is part of that. >> panel, thank you very much. today, thousands of women are descending on the nation's capitol hill just hours from now. they're demanding equal rights for women. of course, this is just mr. trump's second day in office. some trouble-making protesters already clashed with police on the streets. this is yesterday. >> lighting fires. that's a crime. those are riots. to relieve my pn and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira helping me go further. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. humira has been clinically studied for over 18 years.

the inauguration of president trump sparked pockets of protests across the country. more than 200 people were arrested in small violent
3:28 am
clashes. anarchists were smashing windows on the streets. this comes as thousands, maybe tens of thousands, maybe more, women are planning to march here just hours from now. cnn's kyung lah is live with more. what do we expect? >> reporter: we need to make it very clear what happened yesterday is not related that is to take place in a few hours. this women's march that is anticipated, it's expected to be meaningful and dwight organized. 217 protesters were arrested, according to the d.c. police chief. the acting police chief. what they were doing, throwing rocks, setting fires, smashing windows to businesses. all of this happening in a small group of protests. police saying overall, though, the protests did take place sporadically across the industry, largely peaceful. so what's happening today. in just a few hours we're
3:29 am
anticipating that the number of speakers taking the stage here. they are calling this a meaningful resistance. a place for a diverse group of women to gather and let the administration know that they want their voices heard. some 250,000 women, according to the organizers are anticipated to descend here in this swath of d.c. the march is expected to last about two miles, when it finally does begin later this afternoon. 50 speakers anticipated. leading women's rights speakers from gloria steinem to gloria richards to actors like scarlett johansson. peaceful but setting a tone of resicht tans as the administration takes place on its first full day. >> appreciate it. two points, first, people lighting fires, people throwing rocks. they're not protesters. those are riots. we're hearing 500, 600 your
3:30 am
natured marches around the country. we'll watch for those numbers and see if they get to the estimated 1.5 million who signed up online. one thing we know, thousands will be coming across the country to be sure. heading to washington, d.c. to demand equal rights to women, that women's rights are human rights. cnn brynn gingras is in jersey right now. how are you doing? >> reporter: doing well, chris. in central jersey with this particular group, one bus. there's another one in front of us. i've got to tell you when we left union square, dozens of men and women and children getting on those buses a lot of indictment as they head to washington, d.c. a lot of conversations going on. women, men, strangers asking that question why are you here? we're hearing just a lot of different answers.
3:31 am
some say i was born to families of -- some say this is my voice against hate. some saying i'm going to set an example for future generations. collectively, they say this is their time to not take a backseat to this administration. to be vocal against. and that's what is firing up these women. again, men taking part in the historic march, chris. a lot of people resting up at this point, i can tell you, i can assure you, there is a lot of excitement as we get closer to d.c. alisyn. >> i like the backseat metaphor, while you're on the bus. very cool, brynn. we'll follow your travels and journey as you arrive here. thanks so much for that. so, how on earth after such a divisive election can americans find unity today? this week, i sat down with voters on both side of the aisle who are excited about president trump and people who are scared.
3:32 am
we'll tell you what they say, next. i can't have any doubts. especially when it comes to what i'm wearing... it needs to fit my body just right. looking good on stage is one thing. but real confidence comes from feeling good out there. try the improved fit of new depend silhouette briefs. get a free sample at of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine,
3:33 am
like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at

here's the news flash for you. americans are divided. and their feels on president trump are as polarized as possible as he begins his first full day in office. what happens if you put passionate president trump supporters and passionate president trump critic in the same room? can they find any unity? i sat down with them to find out. how many of you are very excited about mr. trump's presidency? how many of you very worried about mr. trump's presidency? okay. so, we're going to have a lot to talk about. alex, what are you most excited about? >> trump is going to reform our employment situation, especially in the african-american community. he's going to rebuild our
3:36 am
infrastructure throughout this country which is just tearing to pieces. >> what are you the most excited about? >> the job situation is a huge issue for me and a lot of people that i know. and i think just trump coming in and being a business owner in a business theater, he already employs people. that's big for me. >> for meer the amount of change that's going to happen in washington, d.c. is going to trickle down to everyone else. that change would be there's too many people here, elected officials and bureaucrats in their zone. it's time to change that up. >> what are you most concerned about? >> i'm more than concerned i'm like in fear for immigrants in this country. i've never felt so disconnected and so concerned that the people until power actively pushing against me, and not fighting for
3:37 am
me. >> i'm most nervous immediately about how woefully ignorant he is of our world economic system. how people operate. of how to manage a government. >> i believe that what we have now is a president who has racist, misogynist agenda. i believe that he also has an anti-earth agenda. and i think that his, you know, goldman sachs cabinet is lined up to implement the policies that i fear most. >> all of you, i mean, look, you hear their concerns, they're worried, they are angry. so what is that -- how do you respond to that? what does that make you feel? >> i'm feeling that there are people who voted differently than me. and i would love to be able to have a way to reassure people. >> what can you tell them of why they should feel reassured
3:38 am
today? >> life goes on. eight years ago, a lot of us on this side of the table would have been oh, god, what's happening now. eight years from now, four years from now, you're going to look back and that wasn't that bad. >> the problem is the similarities you're trying to place with obama is they're not similar. it's not bush to obama. trump is on his own sphere. frump won't even give up his business for this country. how can i trust that? >> he is basically a narcissist. and a sociopath. i'm just telling you as a citizen, i am worried about those personality traits that don't belong. >> i believe he believes in race im, he's shown that by bringing someone like steve bannon into the white house. who is a white supremacist. >> you define him as a
3:39 am
supremacist, these define him as nationalism. nationalism, if you look it up in the dictionary, another word for that is patriot. people genuinely love their country and they want to make sure that's guarded. that has nothing to do with excluding immigrants or people of color or women or men. >> i love america. that's why we're all here. that's why we care so much about this. i think my problem with trump he has this weird fetishized trumpism. that's not healthy. patriotism is loving the founding rules of our country. you know, the constitution and the poems of walt whitman and speeches of abraham lincoln. >> as a woman of color, i think
3:40 am
it's tease say, oh, we should support american ideals. if every single one of us were asked that question we would all give a different answer. we're all diversity. and the melting pot is not a bad thing. >> people have to be aware that they have to be accepting of everybody. that's why i support donald trump because donald trump really knows american exceptionalism. he knows we put ourselves first. >> i'm saying the economic system is built up to prorceven the world from going to war in a major way. >> and political system with nato. these are very important. >> how does nato stop -- >> we are nato. >> and we are nato. >> yes, we are. >> we pull out -- we pull out of
3:41 am
eastern europe and our people will feel -- i'll hope it doesn't happen either. if we were to ever pull out of that, you watch it crumble. >> all agree this is a divided country and just have to go our merry way? >> i think it's very important for us to talk. i would love a chance to talk with republicans about what's happening. what they see happening, like we see what happening, like we are today. >> are you open as well to them? >> i don't think we'll convince each other. >> are we being realistic that we're all going to hearing each other and talk? what do you think the answer it? >> we're not going to hold hands and sing kumbaya. none of us know the answers. what we're going to do is try to find common ground in those areas. we're never going to have the people on the far right get in lockstep and march together. >> you guys are excited, we're
3:42 am
scared. i don't feel any less of you guys since i walked in this room. i think if we can recognize that. and that is one of the big steps. >> it does make we genuinely sad, you know, when good people say they're fearful. if i can help anyone out else to feel the calm or excitement that i have, then that's definitely the goal. and i think for me, it's just going to be a little bit more compassionate as to why people operate the way they do. and what people are concerned about. and where i can speak to that. >> smart people. what did you think? >> well, i think that -- on the end there, they're actually never going to find common ground on policy and position. so the best we can hope for is finding common ground on humanity and compassion. another interesting thing they made me realize, back when we were children -- it might have been different in your house because you were the son of a
3:43 am
politician, to talk about politics at a holiday wasn't done. now, everybody talks about it, mixes it up and yells at each other. that sometimes makes for feisty conversations. >> i think what's happened also the political dynamic has become very cultural and identity-based these days. it's about who you are. and donald trump exacerbated a lot of those existing fault lines. and that's why he's created more division, in a way. because he is seen as having taken a side. so half the people necessarily feel alienated. one of the kids in there said walt whitman. he is famous for many lines. one being america is the white flue, saying it's the right way up. >> the future is bright. they all were civil to each other, we exchanged ideas. >> i hope it's representative.
