3:00 am
calls terror-prone countries and punishing so-calleded sanctuary cities. we're now on day six of the trump administration. every day is action-packed. we have it good morning, chris. the way the white house sees it, it's another day another promise kept with these executive actions coming. president trump hinted at his big plans late last night telling his 22 million twitter followers we will build the wall. >> we are going to build a great border wall. >> president trump said to take his first steps in executing his signature campaign promise. in just hours the president will sign an executive order to begin the construction of a wall along the mexico border. >> we're going to build a wall.
3:01 am
>> we still don't know how he intends to get mexico to pay for it. >> the president also expected to announce a second executive boards on thursday seeking to eliminate so-called sanctuary cities. >> 28,000 jobs. construction jobs. >> the orders follow a blitz of executive actions in the president's first week. >> i am an environmentalist. >> mr. trump signed orders to revive construction of two controversial pipeline projects but president trump's policies continue to be overshadowed by his conspiracy theories. the white house defending his unfounded claim that millions of illegal ballots cost him the popular vote. >> he continues to maintain that belief based on studies.
3:02 am
>> numerous studies refute his claims. the media continues to demand proof of the president's assertions. >> he believes what he believes based on the information he was provided. >> what about democracy. what does that mean for democracy. >> i've answered your question. >> have you. >> republicans and democrats unified in opposing the president's baseless claims. >> i would urge the president -- this is the greatest democracy of the free world and people are going to start doubting you as a person. >> now the president heads to the department of homeland security today to sign the first immigration action. meanwhile mexico's foreign minister is here to begin preparations for the meeting next tuesday between president jump and mexico's president.
3:03 am
>> thank you. >> good morning. >> so this is happening for people that thought it was an empty campaign promise and it is going to be a virtual wall with surveillance. no this sounds like a real wall. >> it's something he campaigned on. in trump's case he is not a typical politician with a typical political concerns. but i also point this out. there's actually a lot of support in the country and beefing up the border. there's not necessarily a lot of support for the rhetoric he uses and the way he is going to demonize hispanics waund of the reasons he is able to jump so far ahead so early on is a lot of americans believed a lot of the illegal immigrants will be
3:04 am
well meaning there's been special treatment for a segment of the country that broke the wall and a lot of people have been following the rules and paying for it and one of the reasons we find ourselves in the position we're in is because both parties refuse to do anything about this or fail to do anything about this for so many years so trump comes in, a law was passed to build border fencing and they were never able to do it and that's why they have political capitol to do this. now we'll see if it breaks down into lawsuits and -- >> you have to separate the rhetoric from the plans. there was also to demonize others. whether they're illegal immigrants, undocumented workers, there's an appetite in this country for that and he fed it. it's something you have to look at whether or not he can do it. that the wall may be working off legislation in 2006 from president bush for fencing.
3:05 am
he can only do an executive order if there's an underlying statute that empowers it. let's see what he is going to get done. build a wall which again, fence, wall, whatever. people want more protection. the statute says fencing, we'll see what it looks like and the catch and release system. 5,000 additional border patrol officers. reveal aid given to mexico. >> that's an interesting one. americans know how much money is going to mexico. that's part of it. >> he wants transparency on that but different government agencies were told to no longer share information to the american people. >> when you look at the specific orders it's not unusual for a new president to come in and try to at least appear to put points on the board fast. execution is going to be everything here. in some respects the wall is particularly attractive to someone like trump because he's
3:06 am
in a job where he's doing a lot of issues that he doesn't really know much about and interacting with construction and the idea i'm going to try to figure out how to finance and put together a real estate project. >> it's a concrete move. no fun intended. >> people will always like actual concrete instruction projects. this could take a lot longer and be a lot more legally complicated than the new president is projecting right now. >> not how expensive it's going to be. he's going to have to get congress on board and there's only so much money in the fencing and just a second, here's what they think. according to the government accountability office, 6.5 million dollars per mile. this was just for single layer fence, okay? so not a wall.
3:07 am
additional 4.2 million for roads and additional fencing around that wall and fence and it does not include maintenance so a total of $14 billion. >> that's a lot of money. now usually voters are more lenient if they say they're doing it for national security reasons. that said, that is a very -- that's a price tag that democrats in particular, and some republicans are going to really scream about. >> well, look, you got one benefit of this is the opm. other people's money. voters if they don't see it coming out -- they have to pay for it directly sometimes they're okay with it. the part of mexico paying for it nowhere in this executive order. >> can we dispel this notion that mexico is going to pay for the wall? mexico was never going to pay for the wall. most of the american people probably won't care. this is going to cost a lot of
3:08 am
money and it's going to be fun and interesting to watch republicans eagerly spend it. what i'm really watching for chris is what the president does in terms of deportations and some of the executive orders signed by obama that i have been watching the past few days. getting very anxious about the fact that trump has done nothing about that yet. we're talking about doca and forgive me for forgetting what the activities kro anymore stands for in full. children brought here who are undocumented immigrants and they have now been legalized. will he undo that or not? will he end up doing that. those are the unanswered questions. there's a lot of support for that on the right in the republican primary. what is trump going to do that. >> we have a little bit of information. this is what he says he's going to roll out. this is his second other executive action on immigration. ban travel from terror prone
3:09 am
country and the syrian refugee program and sanctuary cities. that's an interesting one. what does that mean? he's going to deny federal funds to various major metropolitan areas. >> that's probably the most immediate controversial element of what trump is rolling out here. you're talking about the places this would effect the most, cities like new york, los angeles, chicago, that rely on federal funds for a descent chunk of their budget. not an overwhelming chunk but a meaningful one and there's a lot of support even from red state democrats for this idea that you have to enforce the law and if you don't you're going to pay for it. >> it's not that simple. >> no it's not. >> that label creates a gross misunderstanding. if he triples the ice enforcement personnel how does that work? >> you see this terror prone,
3:10 am
does that mean france? can you no longer come here from france? >> well, this is what we're going to find out today there's a lot of things that are problematic that hurts him in his desire to gain support and cutting off funds for sanctuary cities. cities that are defying federal law, i don't think practicality of it maybe problematic. >> you say defines federal law. one of the things that the mayor would say is we're not going to do your job for you. we're not going to have our police officers do ice's job. >> i agree that the trump side of the argument pays well and you're cutting off funding for hospitals and that's painful in a different direction. >> do you have a point? >> no, i was just going to say then you asked what countries. some of the ones are iran, iraq,
3:11 am
sudan, it's a back door muslim ban frankly and the idea that they're reducing the number of refugees. this is targeting some of the most vulnerable people in the world. the devil is always found there. >> okay. stick around. >> senate democrats spent hours grilling a president's health secretary nominee tom price and the budget nominee about ethics concerns and where they stand on the presidents policies. the senate has now confirmed four of trump's nominees while several await votes after getting committee approval. >> good morning to you. nikki haley was easily confirmed up here yesterday to be the u.s. ambassador to the un meaning that president trump now has four members of his cabinet firmly in place but up here on capitol hill you have many of these nominees still waiting in
3:12 am
the wings as democrats continue to battle over the pace of these nominations. >> tough questions on capitol hill for president trump's pick for health secretary. congressman tom price refuses to promise that no american will be worse off if obamacare provisions get rolled back. >> yes or no, under the executive order will you commit that no one will be worse off? >> what i commit to is working with you and every single member of congress to make sure that we have the highest qualify health care and every american has access to affordable coverage. >> deflecting when asked when the president will replace it. >> president trump said he is working with you on a replacement plan for the aca which is nearly finished and will be revealed after your confirmati confirmation. is that true? >> it's true. >> defending himself against
3:13 am
ethics concerns and much as he proposed during his time in the house. >> everything that i did is ethical above board legal and transparent. >> tom is a good man. he's a family man. he's a physician. he's an honorable man. >> also in the hot seat. he failed to pay taxes on a babysitter. >> it's a mistake. it's been made. how do we fix it? >> getting grilled by senator john mccain for supporting cuts and defense spending. backing a withdrawal of troops from afghanistan. >> don't you know where 9/11 came from. >> did all happy through their
3:14 am
respective committees and now they'll face a full senate vote but there will be no more action on capitol hill this week. they're all headed out of town for the annual retreats. >> thanks for all of that. here's a big question, why is president trump continuing to peddle false claims about voter fraud? where does he get his information? our local panel discusses that, next .

for the strength and energy to get back to doing... ...what you love. ensure. always be you. millions of people voted illegally. problem is they have no proof to support that suggestion. in the room full of reporters challenging the white house for proof. take a listen. >> do you believe there is widespread voter fraud? >> he's very comfortable with this one. he's very comfortable with this
3:19 am
win. got 306 electoral votes. 33 of 50 states voted for him. he believes what he believes based on the information he is provided. >> what does that mean for democracy? >> it means i have answered your question. >> david, it's a lousy answer and an important question. this does go to the roots of the foundations of your democracy. if the president of the united states believes millions of people voted illegally, you would have to investigate. it would have to be a major agenda issue. not just something you dismiss out of hand. what information has he been given that is legitimate that could prove this allegation. >> none exists that we know of and he has been given none that we are aware of. i feel like the president is forcing him into a daily moment
3:20 am
where he has to defend these things to make no sense. the only person in america and any prominens is him. it's unnecessary. he is doing a number of things as president that you would expect a republican to do. and honestly your point is the important one here. people need to have faith in our institution. we saw after 2001 we saw after the 2011 and in the past we have taken this stuff very seriously and nobody called into question the legitimacy of bush's election in that way or ever suggested that there were millions of votes that weren't real. >> follow his line of logic. if millions of people voted illegally then the entire outcome is illegitimate and we
3:21 am
need a whole new election. >> why wouldn't you want an investigation. and talk about alternative facts is trying to throw that into an alternative reality. his name is escaping me but was on situation room last night that authors the study that sean spicer was citing and he was saying that study probably wasn't accurate. >> yeah we have it. >> done a great job of paraphrasing it. >> they base their study on data that wasn't there. so he came out and said you got it wrong. but here's him. >> well, it's very frustrating but i'm sure you can imagine. the data did not show that but we published the study showing the study that the data that uses our data to say that is wrong. that study has been wided cited
3:22 am
by news outlets to say is false and the notion that millions of people could vote illegally and no one would have any data to be able to show that this is the case is just absurd. it's absurd that millions of noncitizens would have voted in 2016. it's not even plausible. >> isn't it the job of kellyanne spicer -- >> kellyanne spicer -- >> they got married. >> brangelina. >> it can be lost in the attention to the briefing room drama and the press secretary and we're not talking about the white house addressing a couple of reporters and addressing the entire reporter. and this is the second time in four days that the president's
3:23 am
mouth piece has gone out and ask people not to believe information that is manifestly accurate in front of their own eyes and when you talk to people from washington and outside of washington, the really distressing process is when there's not a recession and whether there's a national security incident. that hasn't happened. it may never happened. but if they're willing to do this, what is the line. >> there is a loss to conspiracies. there's things that really tempt the appetite on different levels. mr. trump who is a private citizen is a big fan. he's being controlled because he's his own man but he's being influenced by a man that feeds on conspiracy. so you see where it's coming from but it's only hurting him david and also it's hurting us. we have to spend time on this
3:24 am
that is untrue. and it distracks. >> i also think it could overtime hurt our stach jurors around the world. isn't the perfect country and talk to other countries about democratic principles and the rule of law and now you're going to have leaders like vladimir putin and others that will be able to say america's not a perfect democracy. so why are you criticizing us for how we run our own elections. >> during this election putin offered to send election monitors to the united states to help oversee the voting and make sure that it's okay. vladimir putin -- >> maybe he'll be invited again in 28 days. what is sean spicer to do when his boss sees something so differently than maybe he does or then the press or then the facts? >> aside from walk away there's really not a lot he can do.
3:25 am
he is there to serve the president and we saw that the other night when he was very angry and read that statement that was very clear to have come from the top. sean spicer is being put in a very tough position right now and it's for all to see for alex's point this isn't addressing a couple of reporters in the white house. and that's really unfortunate. >> panel thank you very much for discussing all of this. >> we have breaking news we want to get to right now. truck bombs exploding outside of a hotel. armed gunmen storming the building. we have the latest on this attack and who is behind it. abdominal pain? bloating?

we have breaking news out of somalia and a pair of truck bombs exploding outside of the hotel. and this is a hotel popular with government officials. ten people are dead.
3:30 am
dozens were hurt. we're live with the breaking details. what's the latest. good morning, incredibly chilling footage that we have seen there. incredibly rare for cameras to capture that exact moment of impact. and there's a takeaway. this will be called a complex attack in military terms. it's planned well in advance and here's the latest. the first explosion happened. five gunmen stormed into this hotel close to a government building. it's a place used by government officials as five gunmen stormed into that building. the second explosion went off. ten people were killed plus the five attackers at least 30 people wounded and that death toll of course may go up. of course people there literally running for their lives as the second explosion happened. sometimes we talk in this part of the world about terror groups that can pull off attacks like this. we've seen what isis can do both here and isis inspired attacks
3:31 am
in the united states and europe. and it's called electrical shabaab and is an al qaeda affiliate and more proof that al qaeda is still powerful enough at least in africa to pull off these kinds of devastate ago tacks, chris. >> these other groups are more incentivized to do attacks like this to show they're still relevant. let us know the updates on those effected. two controversial oil pipelines. the move is triggering protests across the country. what are these pipelines. what is the protest about. what are the facts? we're going to give you them, next.

♪ for millions of baby boomers there's a virus out there. a virus that's serious, like hiv, but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured.

breaking out in cities across the country and controversial pipeline projects and keystone and dakota access
3:36 am
pipeline. give us the five ws on this. the who, the what, the where, the when, the why. >> you can see that connects canadian oil with existing pipelines to the gulf of mexico and do refineries. and this is the dakota pipeline and i want to show you that's 1100 miles. 470,000 barrels a day. getting into refineries down there. army core of engineers looking into alternative routes. you saw all of those people protesting day after day after day. they're also worried about water and you can see other of this. look how carefully it were to go around water and the reservation here. they don't like the location of this. >> is that the only positive
3:37 am
side and helping things move quickly and it's when you look at some of it here you talk about the environmental impact of all of that stuff and sending it down the pipeline and refining it but there's going to be jobs in both of these products. you're going to help increase defiance on oil and safer to move it on a pipeline than on a trucker on a train. i suspect on the dakota pipeline you'll have a whole bunch of people out there in the freezing cold again concerned about that and rallying for the cameras again. you hear 42,000 temporary jobs. 3900 construction jobs. only 50 of those are permanent jobs so when the president talks about all of this job creation from the energy infrastructure the job creation is temporary. it's more about moving oil and letting the companies get in there and move some oil. >> is this largely a political
3:38 am
debate about people that like oil, people that don't like oil and the people that want to respect native american rights and those that don't or is there a deeper concern people have to watch out for. >> there's a real environmental concern here that these, especially in the dakota pipeline they're really concerned about that. they feel as though they like another route but the president said he wants the green light for this to happen. able to bypass the public debate and get it going here. and that was another one of his executive orders. >> this is true. this is very true. as it stands now only half or maybe 2-thirds is going to be u.s. steel. these companies they'll have to figure out how they're going to get this material. >> it will change the cost structure. >> it will.
3:39 am
absolutely. and the question is who pays for that expense. the reason that president obama was against these versus why president trump is for them is there anything to be found in that difference. >> he wanted more study. that keystone pipeline goes right through the sandhills of nebraska. there's ranchers there. it's grazing. it's really actual sand, almost dunes and then there's fragile and that was always their concern and for now it's really the route. the protestors are concerned about the big energy company with the approval now of the american government. >> with whom does the buck stop? if the president says this goes forward by executive order, is that it? >> he's giving them the green light but he wants them to be open to renegotiation. that gives the white house and army core of engineers and
3:40 am
interior department it gives them room to maybe go in there and renegotiate this thing after something goes wrong. and up for renegotiating after the fact. >> the president is the final word. >> he's the final word right now. yeah. >> with the stroke of a pen president trump will kick start building the wall along the mexican border. how will congress respond? we'll speak with a veteran democratic senator ahead. i mean, really ready. are you ready to open? ready to compete? ready to welcome? the floors, mats-spotless. the uniforms, clean and crisp. do your people have the right safety gear? are they protected? i'm ready! you think your customers can't tell the difference between who's ready and who's not? of course they do. ♪ i'm ready for you everybody wants a piece of ready. cintas, ready for the workday.

now in kids chewables. president trump is expected to sign a series of executive actions on the border wall. he tweeted late last night big day planned on national security tomorrow we will build a wall. the presidents actions will make sweeping and controversial changes. let's discuss this and so much more. the democratic senator is the ranking member of the senate finance committee. good morning, senator. >> good morning. >> great to have you here. let me put up for you and our viewers at home the series of executive action that president trump is planning in the next 48 hours. he says he will sign something to build the wall along the mexico border and the catch and release system for undocumented and illegal immigrants and 5,000 additional border patrol officers reveal to the american public how much aid is given to
3:51 am
mexico and also ban travellers from terror prone countries and the syrian refugee program and sanctuary cities triple ice enforcement agents. where do you want to start on how you feel about this? >> i will tell you, this is an awful lot of symbolism and we have to see the details but if you look for example at yesterday in effect symbolic withdrawal from the transpacific partnership, that doesn't do anything for american workers who are getting hammered by chinese jumping steel and aluminum. we heard about the keystone pipeline. great for canada but not for american taxpayers that could be on the hook if oil is spilled by a foreign company. so a lot of symbolism here. we'll have to see the details. >> a border wall is the opposite. it is concrete.
3:52 am
literally and figuratively. he is planning to build a wall. an actual wall. not a virtual wall along the border. it could cost something like $14 billion. what are democrats going to do. >> we have seen the president all over the map on that. initially he said the mexicans were going to pay for it and then they weren't and then he said we'll start it. this is another devicive policy and another polarizing policy. contrast that with what senate democrats did yesterday. major roads and bridges and infrastructure program. that would put americans to work. clean energy and getting rid of subsidies and promoting more good paying jobs and cleaner renewable energy. the american people are going to be able to see through this. the finance committee, we were
3:53 am
told that there would be a replacement for the affordable care act. we haven't seen that either. >> i want to talk about what you just brought up and that's the keystone pipeline because president trump is now green lighting the pipeline and his rational says it will create jobs. state department would do that. it would create 42,000 temporary jobs. the number that president trump used was 28,000. but in terms of permanent jobs it's 50. but still president trump says that all of the materials to build it will be u.s. made so there could be a ripple effect of jobs going to americans. >> first and foremost this is going to help canada. and also going to see oil companies and they're going to feel them benefit and what this
3:54 am
means for american communities. you have an oil spill because of the gaps in the law with respect to the possibility of the oil spills the american taxpayer will be on hook for cleaning up the spill of a foreign oil company. >> so you think the risk of an oil spill is bigger than the promise of new jobs. >> the risk is very substantial. this is like much of what we're seeing from the new administration here and we were always told people would get better care and i asked yesterday congressman price and i couldn't get him to commit and they won't be worse off. it's a lot of rhetoric and symbolism and there's not a lot
3:55 am
there. >> the hhs nominee tom price, let's play that through. >> under the executive order, you commit no one will be worse off and i committee senators working with you and every member of congress to making sure that we have the highest quality of health care and every single american has access to affordable coverage. >> that's not what i ask. will you commit that no one will be worse off under the executive order? will you guarentee that no one will lose coverage? >> i guarentee you that the individuals that lost coverage under the affordable care act we will commit to making certain that we don't lose coverage under every replacement plan that comes forward. that's the commitment you provide. >> did you get your question answered. >> the congressman says that
3:56 am
people would have access to health care and you can have access to lots of things in america and you don't have anything real that will really help your family. so you duck, you bob, you weave, wouldn't answer about his answer to shred the medicaid safety net. that's insuring that nursing home coverage. >> he turned it to say it was actually under obamacare that people were worse off and they did lose their doctor and it was promised they never would and their premiums went up and it was promised that it would never happen. >> he's going to have trouble explaining that to a lot of trump voters. >> a lot of trump voters heard the president say oh look i can
3:57 am
make it better. we'll have great care for everybody. what we learned is those voters in the campaign and person wants to be the captain of the trump health care team and he wanted to make a commitment to making sure that people didn't get worse coverage. >> but since you also know that people were energized about their displeasure and dissatisfaction with the affordable care act what is your answer. >> my answer is we ought to see a real replacement. that's what the american people were told again and again in the campaign. two of them would be intertwined. the president said there would be no gap at all. congressman price is the architect of the repeal and run strategy. he proposed repealing it and said over a year later you can talk about how to replace it. that's a lot of the working
3:58 am
class families and they weren't worth that. >> i'm going to announce on how i'll vote early morning and a lot of unanswered questions particularly with respect to ethics. he got private placement deals and the value of its stock and didn't correct it until the last minute. he did all of this trading while he was a member of the health care committee and i can just tell you george w. bush's ethics lawyer. said with respect to congressman price that he had never seen anything like this in his 30 years. >> i'm going to go out on a limb and say it sounds like you're not going to vote for him. >> a lot of unanswered questions. i certainly wouldn't commit to voting for him this morning. >> why don't you want to announce it on a morning show
3:59 am
