2:00 am
order pulling the u.s. out of the trans-pacific partnership deal. it never received congressional approval. a tough approach to trade. besides tpp, the president already said he wants to renegotiate nafta. >> the tough positions on trade won a mix of praise and scorn from a mix of sources. this is bernie sanders. >> it's one thing to kill the tpp. that is a positive step. it is another thing to develop a trade policy which finally works for american workers and not the ceos of corporations. if mr. trump is serious about moving in that direction, i would be delighted to work with him. >> senator sanders, a liberal and socialist, likes the president's stance on tpp. some trade friendly republicans like john mccain, not so much. the senator says it creates an opening for china to rewrite the
2:01 am
economic rules of the road at the expense of american workers. >> a top chinese official echoing what the president of china said at davos. we are ready to fill that role. relish to be the leader of trade. what changes now? immediately not much. the move could shape the future of global trade. this was the biggest trade deal, by the way, in history. it would have cut import/export tariffs and allowed american products cheaper access. one country you don't see on the map is china. the deal is pitched a way to counter china's rapidly growing influence in the region. now president trump's move to withdraw leaves china in the position to fill the void. the u.s. negotiated three protectio protections. labor laws all partners tho s h follow. rules for environment and
2:02 am
intere intellectual property. the big question is will the rere remaining 11 nations move forward? australia is not committed. officials from japan and singapore say the deal without the u.s. is essentially dead. >> some are looking to china for deals. >> and the trump administration says it can do a better job with bilateral deals. that is a rejection of 30 or 40 years of trade policy in the u.s. it is the idea if you do individual deals, other countries after do you a deal, they do a sweeter deal. >> so the president following up on a campaign promise. hillary clinton said she would let tpp die also. this was done and buried. the president says this is about creating jobs. he is committed to that. he seems committed to creating controversy. a meeting with congressional
2:03 am
leaders, the president repeated his unproven and not true claim that the reason he trailed in the popular vote in the election was that 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally. there is no proof of that. house democrat steny hoyer said he brought up the crowd at the inauguration. all in all, the meetdiing was me of an ice breaker. some described it as building relationships and light heart ed with brief discussions of obamacare and policy infrastructure spending. >> the republicans inside and outside the white house feel the administration is now back on track following the president's first weekend. the republicans say sean spicer struck the right tone and president trump looked presidential. jim acosta has latest. >> reporter: john and christine, later this morning, president trump will sit with executives
2:04 am
from car companies to talk jobs. he went cheapiipping away at obs issues. he signed executive order killing the tpp. he ordered a freeze on hiring federal workers, but that did not apply to military. he warned business leaders of a border tax if they shift operations overseas. >> a company that wants to fire all employees in the united states and build a factory across the seas and then bring back the product in the united states, they will have to pay a bore to border tax. >> reporter: meanwhile, white house press secretary sean spicer got some of his facts wrong on saturday.
2:05 am
spicer said it is not his intent to lie to the press, but the media coverage of the inauguration was too negative. here is what he had to say. >> i have been doing this a long time. you have been doing this too. i have never seen it like this. it is demoralizing. you are sitting there and you are in awe of how awesome that view is and how many people are there. you go back and see shots on television and see this and that. it is frustrating for not just him, but us working to get the message out. >> reporter: spicer shifted indicating that young undocumented people in the country will not be prioritized for deportation. john and christine. the president set to meet with the cia director mike pompeo. he was sworn in last night by vice president mike pence. another key nominee rex tillerson. the nominee for secretary of state. he narrowly cleared a hurdle through the senate relations
2:06 am
committee. the full senate will approve him. he passed committee vote after marco rubio who was reluctant decided to support rex tillerson. joining us to discuss the first few days of the administration. we are joined by analyst and author ellis henican. >> a busy couple of days. >> let's leave the weekend aside for the moment. >> can we? >> leave alternative facts aside. the president had a lot of meetings yesterday. he deliver oed on a few of the campaign promises. tpp. he set that aside. he set a clear message on trade. listen to this. >> we want to start making our products again. we don't want to bring them in. we want to make them here. that doesn't mean we don't trade. we do trade. we want to make our products here. if you look at some of the
2:07 am
original, great people that ran this country, you will see they felt strongly about that. we will start making our products. >> so the new york times says this is a call to create jobs or else. >> a threat. >> yeah. you know what? it is potent politics. it is also complex policies. christine was discussing it. exactly how you do that? tariffs on goods coming in america or under cut the american business to export its products overseas? you are strengthening china by wrecking the pacific partnership? all of those are complex issues. that will affect the lives of american workers. >> what is clear, a new way of business in town. that's why the american automakers -- only the american big three are going to washington to meet with the president to talk about how they will hire more workers. he talked to union leaders yesterday.
2:08 am
they like his infrastructure plans, of course. this is a president who is basically threatening the american industry. you will hire people here. buy american. hire american is what he said. my question is if you put border taxes and tariffs on the supply chain. what does that do? >> it jacks up prices. and the question of is there retribution from governments abroad? we live in a global economy. anything we do in that regard echos around. >> i have never heard a president say i know you made a lot of money over the past 30 years making stuff overseas and selling here. that will not fly anymore. no one has ever done that before. it really is -- you have to give it to president trump. no one has thought they could stand up to the global supply chain. >> we will see the effect.
2:09 am
businesses are starting to talk differently before speaking. sean spicer with a different white house briefing than he did on saturday. he told reporters he doesn't plan or intend to lie. listen to this. >> it's an honor to do this and yes, i believe that we have to be honest with the american people. i think sometimes we can disagree with the facts. there are certain things we may not fully understand when we come out. our intention is never to lie. >> this is and sean said things that were not true about the crowd size at the inauguration. president trump himself last night apparently with congressional leaders said things that were not true that the reason he did not win the popular vote that 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally. >> it is above the threshold of the popular vote that hillary clinton won. notice that number? >> he is having the meetings and
2:10 am
talking about jobs. he can't seem to let some things go. you will never escape that part of donald trump. >> there is a philosophical point. everybody makes mistakes. there is a difference between that and saying something that is intentionally false. most of us consider a lie. either you know or you ought to know that 3 million to 5 million people illegal aliens as we call them. illegals is the term. did vote. that did not happen. continuing to repeat that in the face of that evidence, i don't know. i think it rises above mistake. >> and speaking of crowd size. just drop it. >> just go on. what if you have a president, serious seriously, we may have to wrestle with this, who continually says things that the facts do not support. it is a new thing for the media.
2:11 am
we are in new territory. >> yes, we are. unpre "unprecedented" is the name of the book. >> it is still available. frightening moments in the state of the state address delivered by minnesota governor mark dayton. touting the success of the affordable care act when he suddenly began slurring his words. >> get him to the ground. >> no cause for dayton's fainting spell. the chief of staff said the event was hot and crowded and dayton was checked by emts and allowed to go home. he is fine. local reporter tweeted dayton was joking with reporters before he went home. he plans to present the budget later this morning as scheduled. >> i wince every time i see

2:36 am
you have been doing this too. i have never seen it like this. it is demoralizing. when you are sitting there and you look out and you are in awe of how awesome of that view and how many people are there. you go back and turn on the television and see shots of this and that. it is frustrating not just for him, but many of us trying to work to get this message out. >> reporter: spicer signal to shift on immigration indicating to reporters that undocumented people in the country will not be prioritized for deportation. thank you, jim. the president is set to meet with the new cia director mike pompeo. the former kansas congress member sworn in by vice president mike pence. another key nominee rex tillerson narrowly clearing a hurdle. he will become the top dip nationa diplomat. joining us to discuss the busy day in office.

best selling author ellis henic henican. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the day. he had meetings with business leaders. he said we will make things here. fulfilling what he said in the inaugural address. buy american and hire american. the ceos are listening to him. he will punish them if they don't. he will put 35% tariffs on things. listen to the president about the trade stance and telling companies hire more people. >> we think we can cut regulations by 75%. maybe more. the one thing that surprised me going around and meeting with the people at the table and meeting with the small business owners. if i gave them a choice of this massive tax decrease that we're giving for business, for everybody, but for business, or the cutting down of regulation.
2:38 am
if i took a vote, the regulation wins 100%. >> he said we want to make products here. you start making products here. this is what you will get in return. this is the dealmaker. this is the first week where he will remake america's relationship with trade. >> part of the leadership is establishing clear principles. saying them. sticking to them. even if the details are complicated. putting down that marker and banging your fist on the table. there is something potent about that. >> the marker was the meetings this morning. the meetings we did not talk about with unions. construction unions excited about the idea of infrastructure spending. he is meeting with people and it is more than just a show. >> no doubt about it. one of the other interesting pieces, it has the potential to create coalitions that are different from the usual ones. not the right/left thing.
2:39 am
we had bernie sanders a moment ago praising the president on the pacific partnership. >> tepid praise. >> from bernie to trump. >> but bernie sanders is saying, now what will do you with trade? that's going to be the important thing. the president and president's team will do bilateral deals. pulled out of the tpp. they want to renegotiate nafta. obviously canada and mexico don't want to give up an edge. they have complaints about nafta. a lot of work. >> don't forget. a lot of traditional republicans are really free traders. it's democrat unions who are the ones who like the tariffs. >> they were free traders. let's see if paul ryan and others still are. i want to do chalk talk on the picture, ellis. the picture of the oval office when the president signed an executive order. the mexico city ruling. the dealing with abortion.
2:40 am
it takes u.s. funds away from groups that receive funds for abortion from other countries. it is complicated, but this is seen as an anti-abortion measure or anti-choice piemeasure. look at the picture right now. what you see in the picture when he is signing something about abortion is the president surrounded by a lot of men. only men. >> diversity has not yet been the hallmark of this administration. and an issue like abortion highlights that maybe more than trade or immigration or other issues. >> he is also surrounded, it shows how powerful jared kushner. >> that is my second thought. bannon and kushner. they were in every one of the meetings yesterday. folks look to see who is holding the leave elevers of power. >> and the power of steve
2:41 am
bannon. the speech and the tone over the weekend. it may be donald trump at the center of it, but if aides are urging him on, they won the weekend. >> ellis, thank you. i want to show you scary pictures from the statehouse in minnesota. we will show you after the break. the governor of that state collapsing as he delivered the state of the state address. the latest on his condition next. dog chow's been a part of my family's life for over 40 years. dat, iowa. my grandfather made it and now i'm making it. as a micro-biologist i ensure that dog chow leads with high quality ingredients.
