now with president donald trump at the helm?ç well, a possibility of moving at the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem, george, has publicly the best chance it's ever had underç a president trump. and when you look at local media today it is the talk of the town with many newspapers talking about moving theç embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. we also heard from the mayor of jerusalem who says that he looks
forward to that move and thatç he'll make all the necessary measures possible to make it as smooth transition as possible. but, from the trump administratiní, we heard from sean spicer, the white house press secretary saying pump your brakes a bit, saying "the beginning discussion -- they're beginning to discuss this move. it does seem to be in its infancy. usually when presidents do come here or when their administration takes over they get a better lay of the land. they usually reverse course, we'll see if that's the case. >> whateverht happens with this it will send out very important signals to surrounding countries there. what is the expectation? what is the reaction fromç the simple suggestion that the embassy could move? >> well, not good. if you look at the surrounding air çcountries, donald trump i riding a bit of a wave of
popularity. egyptian president what the first foreign leader to congratulate donald trump onç winning the presidency, but we need to remember that egypt was also a part of that security council resolution that took place last month thatb condemne israeli settlements in the west bank and east jerusalem. so it's going to be a fine line. we also heard from thev: king o jordan who was speaking with palestinian president saying that he will work with regional and international partners to make sure that moveu! doesn't happen. so, you know, also israeli also has fairly cordialok relationss with arab neighbors that things are getting better. if this move takes place, expect a strong reaction on the arab÷ú street. this will be deeply unpopular and a lot of these various countries in their population and that sentiment is likely to be reflected at the highest level. this is going to be a í of a gamble if the united states
decides to move forward with moving its embassy. >> cnn international correspondentç ian lee live towards this hour. thank you so much for your reporting today. >> we'll take a short break. donald trump and vladimirç put will speak to each other for the first time as president. what the kremlin is saying about it, that's next. plus falcons' fans they are celebrating in the city of atlanta, their team headed to the super bowl. you'll hear from players who will face off in the big game, as newsroom continues. y? you may think you can put off checking out your medicare options until you're sixty-five, but now is a good time to get the ball rolling. keep in mind, medicare only covers about eighty percent of part b medical costs. the rest is up to you. that's where aarp medicare supplement insurance plans

russians and other allies on the énd like the iranians. you're looking at the change in relationship between turkey and russia. we're moving closer to each other. these are two countries thatzv back two different sides in this conflict. we're seeing the united states really absent from these talks, so we're going to have to wait and see something that you hear from opposition forces. there's a lot of nervousness. they're anxious to see what president trum%-l policy is going to be when it comes to syria, especially as you indicated, probably closer ties, as we've seen, with ÷úrussia. he's praised the president. so they're really anxious he might be cutting back on the support we've seen that limited support to the syrian opposition in the past. we havey)= wait and see, of course, george. >> i think that is the phrase, we'll have to wait and see as times are changing and these new alliances that are being formed. many groups that aresnot part of

and she's got a strong negotiating position. she's told the european no deal is better than a bad deal. if they won'tç play ball with her, she's -- then she is prepared to essentially turn britain into a tax haven to be competitive with europe. if she's got÷ú some commitments from president trump that she can expect a good and strong and profitable trade deal with the united states, but herv: negotiator go into the rooms to meet with those 27 eu nations to hammer out the terms of the agreement, the terms of the exit, then,ym perhaps, they go a stronger position knowing that they have something potentially to fall back on,ym that's over simplification, in essence, this is why it's so important. >> and, nick, the two leaders don't agree all the issues, of course, what my÷ú prime ministe might tell minister trump when it comes to nato. >> sure, i mean, they agree on
brexit.ç theresa may have -- for six years worked hand and hand with u.s. territorial official there is's a lot of understanding there. has called it obsolete just yesterday she was speaking with both the head of nato saying that sheç potentially, when sh talks to donald trump, can be a go between between him and other nato nations. she can explain to÷ú him the importance the way that europeans feel that the importance and the rest of collective security and his concern thatç nato nations don pay that 2% of gdp for defense spending the way they're suppose to. she could help them encourage other murpian nato nations to do that, we're standing -- going through brexit and isç another issue. she also believes the european union should be strong.
she said that a week ago.ym donald trump is am b-- they're g more cautious about the strength of the nature of the relationship that donald trump will form wit$! russia and vladimir putin at this time. there are a number of issues that they don't see eye to eye on yet. >> all right. we'll have to waitç until frid to get more details. joining us there, it is 8:37 in áñ thanks. >> back here, many people in parts of the southeastern part of this country will be very focused on ÷úrecovery, monday, after week unseasonably severe weather. the storm killed 14 people right here in the state of georgia. >> four other people were killed in theç region, cnn paula wento a georgia neighborhood this was hit very hard. >> authorities have now been and recovery efforts yet because
of that on going threat for severe weather, as a result what is, perhaps, the hardest hit neighborhood, you may be ableço make out behind the remains closed off because of the darkness and distance you may not be able to see too much. take a look at some of the pictures that have been shot in àd around the region. you can see the widespread devastation, the acres neighborhood, a mobile home park according to authorities where at least seven people lost theiç lives. the owner and manager of that property posting a statement online for his residents say "it is with deep sorrow i write this. the majority os! sunshine acres is no more due to tornado, the majority of sunshine acres was destroyed, most everyone is okay. tiuz still some missing. that manager referring to at least five people that are still unaccounted for. there is concern that death tolú could rise and we're hearing some of the remarkable stories of survival, including a 24-year-old husband and father i spoke to here he said after he road out the storm aot he helped
rescue at least three children from the rubble. cnn. we do want to getç the latest, the unusual deadly weather. we turn to harry, of course, what's unusual is the time of year that we're seeing this è>> absolutely. it's the time of year, you know, what's important to know as well the severity of the storm, not just any tornado, we see about÷ 36 tornados among the quietest time of the year, we take a look since the first of january, almost 100 reports of tornados coming downsacross the united states, 260% increase what is considered normal for this time of year. there's the culprit the p center of the system beginning to move out of this çregion, we want t show you what occurred on into the southern united states, the severe weather helmet in place if we have it for you, we'll show you exactlyç what is goin on as far as the line of active thunderstorms, about 800 mile stretch there, left and right,
