inaugural address. the speech striking a very nationalistic and populist tone. >> go to that early sunrise shot behind us again. a very telling purple, wouldn't that be a great message to come out of this? amid the red and blue, right? >> bipartisanship. >> and what was yesterday? yesterday, it was a burning bright orange, bright red? is there anything in that. that's for you to decide. president trump wasting no time, signing two executive orders getting two cabinet picks confirmed. controversy with that, why not more. all of this with thousands, hundreds of thousands, maybe millions across the country are expected to protest. here the national mall is expected to be packed in washington for a march demanding equal rights for women. let's begin with our athena jones live at the white house. we only know what we saw on the signups online, athena, how it will follow through is what
4:01 am
we'll watch throughout the day. >> that's right. it was a busy first day for president trump. he did get right to work even amidst the festivities signing that executive order on obamacare care. but with the supporters in the crowd also responded well to his fiery address but others saw it as unusually bleak. and the protests here and elsewhere are a sign that there's a lot of work to do to unify the country after a divisive campaign. >> i donald j. trump do solemnly swear -- >> reporter: donald trump sworn in as the 45th president of the united states, delivering a fiery inaugural address. painting a grim picture of america. >> mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities. rusted out factories scattered like tomb stones across the landscape of our nation. and the crime. and the gangs. and the drugs. that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
4:02 am
this american carnage stops right here. >> reporter: president trump promising to take a nationalist approach to governing. >> from this day forward, it's going to be only america first. >> reporter: trump striking a populist tone, echoing his campaign rhetoric. >> we are transferring power from washington, d.c. and giving it back to you, the people. >> reporter: trump criticizing the so-called establishment, while being surrounded by washington's political elite. >> their triumphs have not been your triumphs. and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families. that all changes starting right here and right now. because this moment is your moment. it belongs to you.
4:03 am
>> reporter: the president and vice president, and their spouses bidding farewell to the obamas after his address. trump acknowledging his former rival hillary clinton at a congressional luncheon after being criticized for not mentioning her in his speech. >> i'd like you to stand up. i have a lot of respect for those two people. >> reporter: the trumps then making their way down pennsylvania avenue for the traditional inaugural parade. and getting right to business. >> next, an executive order. on the first day in oval office, president trump signing his first executive order to start rolling back obamacare. the president also suspending a mortgage cut for homeowners and signing commissions for his first confirmed cabinet member. >> this was a movement, and now the work begins. >> reporter: ending the historic day by dancing the night away. at three inaugural balls. the first couple sharing their first dance to a frank sinatra classic. ♪
4:04 am
♪ i did it my way >> "my way" a pretty bold choice with defiance and interesting lyrics about telling it like it is. now, the president has his first full day in office. and he'll start it off with a prayer service at the national cathedral. a much lighter schedule after that momentous jam-packed historic day. back to you guys. >> we'll bring in the panel. cnn contributor reporter for the washington examiner and new york post columnist salena zito. cnn political analyst david greg fore. washington bureau chief of daily beast jackie kucinich. and matt i'm a conservative not a republican lewis. ultimately moving forward with the new administration with the work on these titles.
4:05 am
you all are so accomplished. >> like cut it down, people. >> matt, i make that distinction between party affiliation versus ideology for a reason, okay? he found a base that feel ignored. disenfranchised and rejecting of the norms. does have have a chance to do something about it? >> yes, he does have an opportunity here. i think it's an amazing opportunity. everything he's done has been amazing to get to where he is. donald trump could be end up being the most consequential conservative in american history sand he's not a conservative. he's going to get 100 federal judge picks, cannot be filibustered. could change history for a generation or more. and obamacare. that could be debacle or amazing. so, it's an opportunity. but to go either way. >> jackie, the portion of his
4:06 am
speech that seems to be getting the most attention is when he talked about the burned out towns, the carnage that america has seen. let me play this for everybody in case they missed it. >> for too many of our citizens a different reality exists. mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities. rusted out factories scattered like tomb stones across the landscape of our nation. and 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. >> that was a huge applause line from where we were standing. the crowd erupt what did you hear? >> it was a dark speech. this was not a standing on a hill. it was sort the rain cloud look
4:07 am
of a city on a hill. but it was very much the rhetoric that we heard during the campaign. and what his donald trump coming into this. it really reminded me of the campaign. right now, that's going to work for him. >> we saw it play out yesterday in realtime. he gave that speech which to me played like a slap in the face to everybody sitting behind him, former presidents. then he goes into the lunch at bill clinton, secretary clinton, hillary clinton who he didn't mention in the inaugural address. boy, do i have a lot of respect for them. everyone in this room, we're going to have get along. two totally different messages. which can he deliver on? >> i want to pull together one aspects of it. seeing trump in this historical
4:08 am
context. what's striking is how he aligned himself with the audience yesterday. all of these people up here, i'm not with them, i'm with you. i think this notion of a workers' party, we'll see if he can pull it off. there are people who feel good that trump is in power. they're going to give him a lot of room even if they can't deliver on all of these promises because they're going to see him as being engaged in trying. he's only going to dot minimum, to your point, of looking around to the establishment saying oh, yeah, they're good people. i have a lot of respect for them. one thing that's striking and i still think it's hard for journalists in the establishment, he's doing what he said he was going to do. all that stuff on the campaign, i mean it. >> until he signed that executive order not giving money back to people with a mortgage reduction. >> right, i see that as a gift. >> and he ruled against people trying to pay their mortgage.
4:09 am
>> right. i think that's contention with even his own party. but also the fact that it's not just democrats. there are a lot of people who still feel like their life got a lot better understand president obama who are very uncomfortable with him. and he comes in an unpopular president. he's got approval ratings that are far below what others have come in with. he's not getting much of a honeymoon. he is taking in and writing of these two countries. that is a political rally. >> so, after he discussed the inaugural address, people can project on to it what their blizzards are. jackie and many heard a dark bleak speech. what do you hear? >> well, it's interesting, when we were talking about carnage in the last segment. i mentioned chicago heights, illinois. it's predominantly black town. it is like 70% poverty rate. and people were tweeting back to me, oh, my god, you talked about us. thank you so much. you recognized who we are.
4:10 am
yes -- >> yeah, he did. or they didn't show up to vote. >> yeah. >> i think it's more -- his speech yesterday to appeal to people, and bernie sanders could have given that speech. >> they've forgotten. >> generations of politicians have given that speech in different ways. some el loqueneloquent, some mo directed and focused. andrew jackson could not be more generous at this point, andrew jackson was a man who came up from nothing and followed through on it. democrats have had the bruce springsteen kind of working class kind of guy. >> not anymore. >> this is an opportunity for donald trump to basically take that -- >> he has. my father gauge this speech in 1984 in a different way. that was the democratic base. blue collar. not anymore. >> to chris' point, i mean, you said that they can -- they think that he hears them, he's going
4:11 am
to have to deliver and not hurt the lower income or lower middle income people. he's going to have to make good on that. >> see when we talk about projecting qualities on to the president, don't forget that president obama was a huge beneficiary of that. people created a kind of messiah complex around him. he recognized it and said a lot of people could be disappointed. what happened eight years ago later? bernie sanders is what happened inside the democratic party which made it much more damaging than hillary clinton. >> the party has got to figure out who they are. republicans have to accept who they are in the form of donald trump. democrats don't even know. >> thank you so much. with two cabinet positions in place on the first day, the senate confirmed james mattis and john kelly for homeland security. when will the president have more of his cabinet picks confirmed?
4:12 am
cnn's sunlen serfaty is live with the latest. >> there's still a lot of work to do, james mattis and kelly sworn in after being confirmed by the senate. the president saying he's pleased that he now has two members of his cabinets in place. this is sort of what trump had wanted. he was hoping to have at least seven cabinet members in place already. it's notably far fewer than president obama had on inauguration day. trump is sending specific words to the senate, quote, i call on members of the senate to fulfill their constitutional obligation and swiftly confirm the remainder of my highly qualified cabinet nominees so that we can get to work on behalf of the american people without further delay." several democrats have objected to trump's nominees, trying to slow down the process, setting off a lot of squabbling on capitol hill. there was a flurry of negotiations among the senate
4:13 am
leaders last night. there's some small movement for monday coming up. they've agreed to open up debate and hold a confirmation vote for mike pompeo, cia director. and rex tillerson for secretary of state will get a committee vote on monday. and that vote, chris, is expected to be razor close. >> a lot of politics in play. sunlen, thank you very much. president trump got right after it and went to work right after the swearing in. now, the first moves, what are we going to see in terms of priorities of accomplishment? a closer look that the -- next. starting at $35 a month. no extra monthly fees. audi pilotless vehicles have conquered highways, mountains, and racetracks. and now much of that same advanced technology is found in the audi a4.

so president drauonald trump is
4:17 am
waking up in the white house for the first time. there's a beautiful live shot of the sun rising. did trump's speech help heal? this is a country divided by the most memorable election in history. joins us, vanessa blackburg. part of the transition team. only for hours. >> just working myself out of a job. >> congresswoman, great to have you here. >> sure. >> tell us about what you heard in mr. trump's inaugural speech? and before -- inaugural address. before you do, i want to put up a word cloud that the words that "the washington post" put together that has never been used in an inaugural address. carnage, sad. trapped. bleed. disrepair. rusted. tombstones. some people heard a bleak picture. what did you hear? >> what i heard from donald trump was a message that looked
4:18 am
out to people gathered before him and people around the country and said, hey, it's you and me, babe. and you see these buildings that surround us, you see these people behind me, we're going to put this thing in shape. people are tired of leadism. and what has gone on in washington. and i thought he spoke exactly as he had campaigned. and you know what else, he really met the expectations. the american people in so many ways. now, is there a job of bringing some of those that had opposed him still into hope and expectation of what he's going to deliver? absolutely. he is the president of the united states. >> so how does he do that? >> i think the way he does it is by continuing to reach out. and including the american people against what has been establishment washington. and i thought he was very effective in that.
4:19 am
>> and, you know, words go a long way. >> yes, they do. >> and they're powerful. and people feel seen and heard for the first time as he's recognized them. that's very powerful. at some point, the rubber meets the road. what does he mean. we stop the carnage of burned out towns who have fallen to drugs and opioid addiction. what's the action? >> let me give you an example of that because you can come into middle america or appalachia and you can see towns that have been ruined box the coal industry is shut down or because manufacturing is shut down and they don't have access to rural broadband. high speed internet. so they can't see educational opportunity for their children. these are so many people that we have been fighting for to help them. and they feel left out. >> what's the plan for this? >> the plan is jobs, jobs, jobs.
4:20 am
it is putting the infrastructure in place. >> like an appalachian town what are the jobs there? the jobs are bringing back manufacturing. bringing back the coal country. utilization of clean coal technology. in some of my communities -- >> just so i'm clear, rebuilding factories, reproducing the coal industry. >> and retraining. retraining people for other jobs, call centers. increasing educational opportunities. logistics. looking at my state of tennessee, logistics is a major component of the economy. and the thing is, alisyn, it's not one size fits all delivered by washington, d.c. it is partnering with these governors and these county mayors and these city mayors saying how do we best help you. and how do we send that power
4:21 am
and money and devolvement out of washington. >> it's interesting that you say that because you are part of congress, right? >> that's right. >> in some way, the president is saying these jokers in this capitol hill haven't done right by you. >> that's exactly right. >> he said in this inaugural speech, the political establishment is over. now, it's going to be you people that have the power. meaning the populist. >> absolutely. >> but you're part of congress. >> absolutely. >> do you think you have been willfully ineffective? >> i think the body as a whole has been stymied by inaction. and i am one of those that has said let's send the power and the money and the ability back to the states and local governments. and get it out of washington, d.c. for people that do not know these communities are making decisions that impact them. regulations make it impossible for -- i've got communities that have been hit by epa violations for waste water. they have no ability to tend to
4:22 am
this. >> but they froze-tho some of t regulations. >> that's right. >> the federal housing association mortgage, for people wanting to buy a first-time house and struggling. it helped them with down payments as low as 3.5%. it was seen as helpful for people who needed money for their mortgage or first-time homeowners? why stop that? >> we can approve a 2008 housing crisis which found its genesis going back into the carter year, and the clinton years and to the community reinvestment and all of those things. >> i think that people thought there was funny business going on with loans and all of that. >> pardon me, it's appropriate to say, let's take a time-out. let's not make a change. let's get a complete assessment. let's know what we're dealing
4:23 am
with before we take an action on something. >> you don't see this as hurting people who were struggling to pay their mortgages or who are first-time homeowners? >> i say it as saying, let's take the time to do did the due diligence. to see what a long-term effect is going to be on a policy change because we do not want to travel again a road that we travelled that didn't have a good ending. so, you know, i see that as wisdom and due diligence and just temperance, taking the time to redo something. >> congresswoman, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> we'll see you again. tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands are heading here to washington, d.c. to the national mall today for the women's march. this, of course, will be in mr. trump's back yard. what is the message of this march? what do they hope to accomplish? we'll tell you -- next.
4:24 am
4:25 am
4:26 am
4:27 am
women are descending on washington, d.c. at this hour for what is expected to be a large women's march to the back yard of the white house. cnn's kyung lah is live. what are you seeing? >> reporter: alisyn, we have 2 1/2 hours before the speakers start to take the stage here. we have a pretty sizable crowd. there's no way to count exactly how many people there are. we're surrounded by people here. just over our heads that way, that's the main stage. in about 2 1/2 hours, we're anticipating a large number of speakers to speak for three to four hours. there are various celebrities to scarlett johansson to julianne
4:28 am
moore. gloria ste gloria steinem. i want to give you a sense of the crowd. where are you from? >> atlanta. >> we've heard women from south carolina as well as from california. and if you look at the signs here. the thing that strikes me, is that there aren't a ton of anti-trump signs. there's a lot of very positive women forward signs. a lot of issues like black lives matter. and what you're also seeing here are a large number of hats. this has been a viral movement. if you scan the crowd here, you can see a number of these ladies all wearing hats. you'll also see men. he's wearing a planned parenthood hat. a jovial crowd. if i had to describe what the crowd is like, it's almost like a concert or peaceful event.
4:29 am
250,000 women and men are expected to take part, according to the organizers, 600 sister marches expected to take place across the country. alisyn, chris. >> kyeong, keep us updated. democratic congresswomen from michigan. >> good to be here. >> the word is, this isn't about d.c. the marches across the country. maybe as many as 600. about 1.5 million signed up online. we'll see how that shows. internationally, there's an effect of this as well. what do you think this speaks to? >> you know, i think it's a coming together of community today. women are trying to be positive. they care about the future of this country. they're coming together for democracy, we're going to see a lot of people here. i'm leaving. i'm going to gather in hancock mark. we've got 9500 people coming from michigan. i'm racing to michigan and i'm
4:30 am
going to do a march together. we pull ourselves together. >> protests, decent, american. >> freedom of speech. let's not even be negative in how we frame it. >> i'm suggesting you will see plenty of negativity because there's a new reaction to the new president. part of the reaction, move on with it. don't delay the confirmation hearings. don't speak out against the president. give him a chance. what do you make of that criticism? >> i'm going to say a couple different things. even in the hearing, you saw she was talking about positivity. i think women are trying to be positive. i think we saw a lot of different people here. we have demonstrators that we saw from the world bank. and we saw people coming who are scared. they want to make sure their voices are heard. i think yesterday was a day of democracy. the symbol of the peaceful
4:31 am
transfer of government is one of the most important freedoms we have but freedom of speech. >> when guys break windows -- >> let me be clear. i got caught in it. it scared me and i ended up not going because -- you know me, i go by myself. i didn't want to walk by myself. >> the next layer of it is how do you react to the president? president trump, the confirmation hearings, we've got mattis, we've got kelly. pompeo is being held up. that's not unusual in the confirmation hearings. but with the rest of them, you don't have the votes to stop the confirmations in the senate unless you get gop. what is the strategy from the democrats? >> i think -- first of all, i was very happy for him to say we're going to reopen nafta. i said for two years, for trade, i've said if he's going to do things like help the working men and women of my district if this country i'm right there with
4:32 am
him. we have bad trade deals. we're not playing on a level playing field. if he tries to privatize social secured and medicare if he tries to create a muslim registry, he's going to meet a buzz saw like he's never seen. with the confirmation hearings, there are serious ethics issues that we've gait to be sure that people are looking at and understanding potential conflicts of interest. that's a responsible element. >> what did you take from the address yesterday? what did american carnage mean to you? >> i have to say to that, i was disheartened yesterday. i always felt that i should be there because it is a fundamental transfer of government. i thought everybody needed to make their own decision. but see, i believe in old things -- >> in the house, they vote. >> and it's their right to choose. i think i was the most disheartened about him because i have hoped that he would do
4:33 am
something to pull us all together. he didn't acknowledge any of the sitting presidents that were sitting there. i have to say that, you know, we got to pull together. if this country is going to succeed, we've got to pull together. >> accept, look, everybody always wants unity, right. >> even if that means you got to get along, respect each other. >> that's fine. i think the message from donald trump would be there are people who feel ignored by your party. and i speak for them. they don't like what happens here. i don't like how you guys do your job, and we're not going to forget that. >> so, you know, i've been saying that for two years. when i talk about it, i'm also respe respectful. and i talk about i want to reach across the aisle. we've got to be about change. so, i'm going to do it. i said to you -- i cannot wait
4:34 am
to reopen nafta with him. i want to take the time to understand what both the auto companies and the uaw thinks as we open that. it can't just be rhetoric. it can't just be words. okay. how do we create that level playing field. i'm going to do the homework, do. >> we got to separate foreign and domestic. but domestically, it really seems like donald trump and this emerging part of the republican party has eaten your lunch, as democrats. you were the lunch pail party. you were the blue collar party. no more. now you're seen as culture warriors and elitists. what do you do about that? >> it is a real challenge for this party and i'm going to be saying this for a while. i'm going to try to be a voice for middle class economic issues because that's what our party has to start talking about. and we've got a challenge. we've got a very real challenge which is how do we continue to
4:35 am
have a voice for those who have a voice. how are we going to continue to be identity politics. i don't care what race they are that we're going to be a voice for everybody. and they need to know we're fighting for them. >> the great equalizer is the paycheck. congresswoman dingell will be covering the action that follows up on both sides. >> thank you. americans still very much divided about a trump presidency. you don't need me to tell you that. up next, alisyn is going to sit down with a group of voters who have some civil disagreement. can you believe that? hopefully, it's the way forward. more of our special coverage live from washington next. it's been touring the country telling folks about our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs.
4:36 am
aw man. hey, wait up. where you goin'? here we go again. when you hit 300,000 miles. or here, when you walked away without a scratch. maybe it was all the times it got you safely out there. or all the times it got you out of there. maybe it was the day your baby came home. or maybe the day you realized your baby was not a baby anymore. every subaru is built to earn your trust. because we know what you're trusting us with. subaru. kelley blue book's most trusted brand.
4:37 am
and best overall brand. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
4:38 am
so, this will not surprise you. to learn that americans are divided. about the country and their
4:39 am
feelings on president donald trump. they are as polarized as possible. as he begins his first full day in office today. so, what happens if you put passionate supporters of mr. trump at a table with passionate critics. we wanted to find out. here are the results. >> how many of you are very excited about mr. trump's presidency? how many of you are very worried about mr. trump's presidency? okay. so we're going to have a lot to talk about. alex, what are you most decided about? >> trump is going to just reform our employment situation. especially in the african-american community. he's going to rebuild our infrastructure throughout this country which is just tearing to pieces. >> what are you most excited about? >> job situation has been a huge issue for me and for a lot of people that i know. and i think just trump coming in and being a business owner, in a business creator, he already
4:40 am
employs people. that's been a huge thing for me. >> to me, would be the amount of change that's going to happen in washington, d.c. itself that's going to trickle down to everyone else. that change would be there's too many people here elected officials, ndur cats and such that are in their comfort zone. it's time to shake that up and change that. >> beth, what are you most concerned about? >> i am more than concerned, i'm like in fear. for the immigrants of this country. i've never felt so disconnected. and so concerned that the people in power actively pushing against me. and not fighting for me. >> i'm most nervous immediately about how woefully ignorant he is about world economic system. of our people operate. of how to manage a government. >> i believe that what we have now is a president who has a
4:41 am
racist misogynist agenda. i believe that he has also 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. >> you of you, when 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 know 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 today? >> life goes on. eight years ago, a lot of us on this side of the table would have been like, oh, god, what's happening now. eight years from now, four years from now, whenever that changes, you're going to look back and say that wasn't that bad. >> problem with that, the similarities that you're trying to place with obama is that they're not similar. it's not from bush to obama.
4:42 am
we're not having -- trump is on his own sphere. trump won't even give up his businesses for this country. and if you care more about that than serving your people, how can i trust that. >> he's basically a narcissist and sociopath. i'm just telling you this from my perspective as a citizen. i am worried about those personality traits that don't belong in this. >> i believe if he approves of racisms, and he's shown that by bringing someone like steve bannon into the white house. someone who is a white supremacist. >> you define him as a schwhite supremacist. they define him as a national lift. >> a nationalist, if you look it up in the dictionary, it's defined as a patriot. they want to make sure that's
4:43 am
guarded. it has nothing to do with excluding immigrants or people of color or women versus men. >> i love america. we all do. that's why we're here. that's why we care so much about this. and i think my problem with trump is that he has this weird like fetishized patriotism that is blind, it's unquestioning. and that's not healthy. that is what i would say is nationalism. patriotism is loving the founding rules of our country. you know, founding of the constitution. poems of walt whitman and speeches of abraham lincoln. >> as a woman of color, i think it's offensive to say we should support american ideals. when i don't think if every single one of us were asked that question, we would give a different answer. we're all diversity. and the melting pot is not a bad thing. >> people are sick and tired of people telling them they have to
4:44 am
do it at the expense of themselves. that's why i support donald trump. he knows exceptiona aaexception. >> the most american thing we can do is continue this liberalization with the world. >> one world -- is that what you're saying? >> i'm not saying that. the system that we built up to prevent the world from going to war in a major way. >> and the political system with nato. >> yes. >> these are very important. >> how do you stop the rise of islamic terrorists? >> we are nato. >> we are nato. we pull out -- we pull out of eastern europe and our people there -- i'll tell you, i hope it doesn't happen either. you watch it crumble. >> we allal agree this is a divided country and we have to go our merry way? >> i think it's important for to us talk. i would love a chance to talk with republicans about what's
4:45 am
happening and what they see happening. like we are today. >> are you open as well to hearing them? >> yes, but i don't think we're going to convince each other. >> are we being unrealistic that we're all going to hear each other and talk? >> we're not going to get together and hold hands and sing kumbaya. none of us know what to do and try to get together. all we can do is try to find some common ground. we're never going to have people in the far left and far right get in lockstep to march together. >> you guys are excited. we're scared. i don't feel any less of you guys since i walked in this room and met you. in fact, i like all three of you. i think if we can recognize that, and that is one of the big steps. >> it does make me genuinely sad, you know, when good people say they're fearful. and if i can help anyone out to feel the calm or excitement that
4:46 am
