different route. we have no choice. >> reporter: saying such a meeting would be fruitless. that does not take away the challenge of how the wall is paid. that is something that house and senate republican leader does n leaders do not agree. putting a 20% tax on imports. that is not a good idea. it is a cost of 12 billion dollars to $15 billion to build that wall if the plan goes forward. as the british prime minister visits the white house today, ongoing controversy with the meeting with the mexican president next week. >> jeff zeleny. you talked about the tax. plenty of confusion over the tax. white house floeating the idea f the 20% tariff. it is something the administration is discussing. they say it would pay for the wall and rise prices at gas
stations and stores. the u.s. imported $296 billion from mexico in 2015. a 20% tax on that is $59 billion. more than double the cost of the wall. here is the important note. mexican companies are not paying for that tariff. it would be u.s. companies paying for it. importer of record pays the tax for the privilege of bringing the goods in. mexico's foreign minister met with officials yesterday said it would make a pppliances and fla screen tvs more expensive. 6 million jobs are dependent on trade with mexico. and it also impacts agriculture. >> it is amazing how simplistic it seems to be without thinking through the details of how it plays out. >> there is an interesting conversation.
would you pay more for a tv or stuff at walmart if you had more jobs in america? >> but that wouldn't do this. >> that wouldn't do this. it might. >> if you did it across the board. change the tax code. >> if you have more companies doing business in the united states. are you trying to keep jobs in the u.s. or pay for a border wall? >> you have to do it all. >> exactly. for the british prime minister meeting today with president trump, she is expected to explore ways to boost trade with the u.s. and britain. theresa may warmly praised trump for the victory in philadelphia at the republican retreat. the u.s. and uk share a global leadership, but there are limits to intervention moving forward. >> it is in our interests, those of britain and america together, to stand strong together to defends values and interests and
the very ideas in which we believe. this cannot mean return to the failed policies of the past. the days of britain and america intervening in sovereigning countries in an attempt to remake the world in our image are over. >> now may's speech frustrated democrats who said she should not have gone to the republican retreat, but instead spoken with members of both parties when she arrived in d.c. president trump makes the first visit to the pentagon and commander in chief. he will attend the swearing in of james mattis. he will address the staff over the objectives of fighting isis. cnn's ryan browne live from washington with the details. what is the mood inside the walls? >> reporter: good morning, christine. they are anticipating the objectives now. the officials i spoke to would get the objectives from trump in terms of how he deals with isis.
they craft strategies and tactics to actually accomplish those objectives. the pentagon has largely been left to its own devices by the trump administration so far. the missions in iraq against isis and syria and afghanistan largely unchanged. no significant policy shifts or new missions to date. the pentagon described the relationship as stream lined and less micro managed than the previous administration. there are issues down the road. leaked executive orders to bring back waterboarding and other techniques that are considered torture. another memo about the state department and pentagon to establish safe zones in syria. the pentagon was largely unaware until they were leaked in the media. there are potential policy slashes down the road. as it stands now, they are happy
with the level of the relationship with the white house when it comes to military policy. >> thank you, ryan. the president will make a stop at the hall of heroes at the pentagon where he will sign a series of executive orders relating to national security. white house is not offering details, but president trump is expected to begin the process of toughening refugee and visa policies for terror-prone countries. president trump was expected to sign executive order yesterday launching an investigation of false claim of voter fraud. that signing was postponed without explanation. today marks the end of donald trump's first week of president of the united states. a quiet week. joining us to assess how he did, josh rogin. good morning. you were working on a great story yesterday. showing the upheaval at the state department and the top tier of management that is now out. what happened? >> right. there are a lot of people in the
state department wondering what the future holds for them in the trump administration that will radical foreign policies ways unpredictabl unpredictable. those people found out their services were no longer needed. this is part of the larger trend of state department officials leaving or getting fired or both. the place is clearing out. >> trump is clearing it out? >> both are happening. the ones yesterday, the trump administration's decision. before they made that decision, dozens of officials have left. dozens more are expected to leave. we are talking about career people. foreign service, civil service. working all of the bureaus. all of the regional functions. again, some want to leave. some don't want to leave. they are all leaving. now rex tillerson, a guy who doesn't have experience in government, is going to have a leadership vacuum. >> he does have experience in
big, broad, sprawling organizations. >> absolutely. the state department is a unique place. hundreds of thousands of missions all over the world. complicated security arrangements. how to protect u.s. citizens abroad. these are the things this administrative bureau got gutted yesterday. that is what they are in charge of. running exxon is different than running the u.s. diplomatic corps. that is done by professionals which are mostly non-partisan. they are all gone now. a new generation will come up. maybe he will bring in his own people. i'm here to tell you that in the state department and dozens of people responded to my story yesterday. people are freaked out. a lot of uncertainty. a lot of change going on in a way that is unpredictable. when yyou add to that the chang in the foreign policy with the president tweeting with mexico and starting a trade war
potentially and calling russia, that adds to the disruptive nature. >> the mexico thing. you know, the view from inside mexico, our neighbor and third largest trading partner, as a rudi johnson i huge insult. the dignity has been maligned. i have never seen diplomacy via twitter before. >> one way to look at it is i business negotiation and diplomatic negotiation. >> where is it in "the art of the deal" where the other people leaves? >> right. the problem is these leaders have constituencies. they have to respond to the way business leaders don't. when they get bullied, they have to push back. they have no choice. it puts them in a position where you can't make a deal. >> the bigger picture is we seem to beat up on our friends and trying to side with our former enemies or those that weren't exactly friendly to us on
russia. having the first conversation with putin tomorrow. people shrug and say it doesn't matter. you can tweet foreign policy. that is fine. at some point this does have an affect. >> that is right. >> this is the beginning. >> it is the very beginning of the very long slog. trump campaigned by saying president obama was too harsh on allies and too kind to adversaries. he seems to be expanding that. he is putting that on hyper drive. we have to see what happens with russia. maybe he will make a great deal. let's give him the benefit of the doubt. >> the idea of safe zones in syria seems -- you are talking about thousands of troops on ground. >> not necessarily. if there are troops, maybe turkish troops. he says all these things and doesn't give us details. it will call on the national
security to figure out how do it. >> the executive order calling on someone to try to figure out how to fix something. is that an executive order or press releasrelease? >> it is a little from column a and column b. the devil is in the details. having a place in syria so they don't have to flee to europe, that is probably something we should look at. the concern is with the things the trump administration and president said about what we should do in syria and refugees, nobody knows what that means. if you did it exactly right, it might make a positive difference. it is difficult. not a lot of confidence he will figure it out. >> if he keeps going down the road, will america still be the leader of the free world? >> there is no alternative. you had chinese president xi
jinping going to davos and saying that. are we standing up for human rights or push free trade around the world? these are shifts in how we lead. >> america first. america first. i think it is a busy week. i joked it was a very busy week. the president, his pen is on fire. >> only get busier. >> come back. the march for life takes to the streets of washington today. including the most high profile speaker in the event's history. but can the crowds at this march equal what we saw at the women's march last weekend? om mine new york. laser precise 0.4 millimeter tip for our most defined line. all-day wear. waterproof. maybelline's master precise liner. ♪ maybelline new york. make it happen.

laying the ground work for the border wall and making mexico pay for it. this comes hours after the first face-to-face meeting with the foreign leader. let's bring in jeff zeleny. >> reporter: president trump will meet with british prime minister theresa may here at the white house today. the first meeting with the foreign leader of the presidency. the first time he will have a chance to take a measure of her and vice versa. they will hold a press conference here talking about so many issues with the countries and around the world. it is a dust-up with another foreign leader. president of mexico that is really causing the first diplomatic standoff of the administration. yesterday, president trump said he agreed with the mexican president to cancel a meeting next week between the two leaders. that is not exactly how it went down. the mexican president said he would not come to the u.s. next week because of the issue over the border wall and who will pay for it.
this is how donald trump explained it with the meeting with republicans thursday. >> the president of mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next week. unless mexico is going to treat the united states fairly with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless and i want to go a different route. we have no choice. >> reporter: saying such a meeting would be fruitless, but that does not take away the challenge of how the wall is paid. it is something the leaders in the senate and house do not agree. putting a 20% tax on goods coming into the united states. that is a bad idea. trump will have them work it out. it will be a cost of $12 billion to $15 billion to build the wall. as the prime minister visits the white house today, ongoing controversy over the canceled
meeting with the mexican president next week. jeff zeleny, thank you. honestly. a lot of controversy over this idea of the 20% tariff on mexican imports. this is what the white house suggested yesterday. there is no proposal on the table. we are told it is something the administration is discussing. a 20% tariff on imports from mexico. they say it would pay for the border wall. economists say it would hurt the u.s. economy and raise prices at stores and gas stations. the u.s. imported $296 billion of goods in 2015. 20% of that is $59 billion. that is more than double the estimates for the cost of the wall. the mexican companies would not pay the tariff. the mexican government would not pay for it. the importer of record pays the tax for the goods.
about 40% of the automakers parts originate in the united states. a mexican made car, 40% of it made here first. it would have serious consequences for both economies. 77% of mexican exports went into the u.s. in 2015. what does graham think about the proposal for the tax on the imports to pay for a border wall? the south carolina republican making feelings clear in the tweets. border security, yes. tariffs, no. mexico is the third largest trading partner. any tariff we levy, they can levy. he wrote, any policy proposal that drives up the cost of corona and tequila and margaritas, very bad idea. mucho sad. as for the meeting today with president trump, theresa
may is expected to discuss boosting trade. may praised trump for the victory at the retreat for republicans in philadelphia. the u.s. and uk share the burden of global leadership, but there are limits to intervention moving forward. >> it is in our interests, those of britain and america together, to stand strong together to defend values and interests and ideas in which we believe. this cannot mean return to the failed policies of the past. the days of britain and america intervening in sovereigning countries in attempt to remake the world over in our image is over. >> some say she should not have gone to the republican retreat, but spoken with members of both parties when she arrived in washington. president trump makes the first visit to the pentagon and commander in chief today. he will preside over the swearing in over james mattis. he is expected to meet with the
joint chiefs of staff to go through objectives for fighting isis. we will get a sense of how the department will operate. we have ryan browne with more. what is the mood in the halls behind you? >> reporter: good morning, christine. donald trump will present objectives for the fight against isis. the military will come up with the tactics and strategies that actually will meet those objectives. they will have a few days and weeks to do that. that could include more troops and more attack helicopters or artille artillery. we are not sure about that. officials have said the white house largely left the pentagon to its own devices in the early days of the administration. they talk about a stream lined relationship. the white house is not forcing them to jump through hoops with planning. a lot less micro managing than the previous administration. most of the operations are untouched and no changes in missions or fight against isis
or the u.s. presence in afghanistan. no major policy shifts there. secretary mattis is really taking the time to meet with commanders and talk to allies and get his assessments of what is going on. they are taking a wait and see approach. one thing that raised issues when draft executive orders made its way to the media over torture techniques or setting up safe zones in syria, something that is challenging for the military. those were not necessarily discussed in detail with the pentagon before it got to the media. that could be an issue down the road. as far as we know right now, officials are telling us they are enjoying a good relationship with the white house. very high functioning environment. >> week one in the books. the swearing in today. thank you, ryan browne. the president makes a stop at the hall of heroes to sign
executive orders relating to national security. the white house is not offering details, but donald trump is expected to begin the process of toughening the refugee and visa policies for terror-prone countries. president trump was expected to sign executive order yesterday launching an investigation into the false claim of voter fraud. that signing postponed without explanation. today marks the end of donald trump's first week as president of the united states. joining us to assess how he did is political analyst josh rogin. colu columnist for the washington post. this big exodus at the state department. at the behest of the trump administration. what is happening? >> that is correct. rex tillerson, the incoming secretary of state, is in the building. he is walking around getting rid of a lot of senior people. some of that is expected. some people saw the writing on
the wall and left beforehand. some people are looking to leave anyway. this is unprecedented. what he did is gut the management bureau. people who run the building, run the diplomatic outpost and foreign missions. these are the people who do the nuts and bolts that keep it running day-to-day. they did not stay on until a replacement was found was shocking. >> this is the beginning of the exodus? >> it is the middle. >> other agencies across d.c.? >> that is right. what the concern is that if you want to drain the swamp, that is fine. everybody gets that, get rid of the political people. these are career people. they consider themselves patriotic americans willing to serve. they are not giving that opportunity. you can take a scalpel to these things or take a sledgehammer to
it. the manner in which he is doing it is creating a lot of unease in the state department and people are not seeing a careful evaluation of who is doing what. is this person good for u.s. diplomacy? they are seeing a total bloodbath. >> in every one of the stories i read, people note rex tillerson has no foreign policy experience. he does have spoforeign policy experience. he knows the big players. he worked his entire career in a sprawling organization that he managed. he has executive experience and foreign policy experience. >> i agree. he has experience dealing with world leaders. he doesn't have experience with the state department. it is complicated. it is not a business. they are not dealing with profits and losses. they are dealing with protecting americans and advancing american foreign policy interests. that is another set of balance sheets. when you gut the institutional memory of the state department,
that is a problem. will they recover? sure. part of this is you manage a team of 65,000 people around the world who have pride in what they are doing. they are serving their country. they feel mistreated and scared about what's coming. these actions did not help. >> when you have a time at the very top, the president, muddying the waters and creating waves diplomatically. you need these guys. >> first of all, a president who campaigned against the establishment and imagine you are the mexican desks officer working your career managing the rise in the u.s./mexico ties. the tweet comes over and your whole career is out the window. they must be freaked out. >> i cannot think of a parallel of what happened with the american president and the mexican president yesterday. >> it is unprecedented.
a krucrude way of doing foreign policy. the foreign minister for mexico was at the white house yesterday. >> i cannot see how there could be any other choice. >> president trump misrepresented it as an agreement when he talked to lawmakers in philadelphia sdplch. >> as a fish, you swim in the dirty d.c. water. i love the bannon quote. shut its mouth. you are humiliathumiliated. you are the opposition. he doesn't say anything, then this. >> it say dig at the democratic party. then the opposition? a big debate in d.c. is he baiting us? he is trying to set us up to have a strong man to attack or does he really believe we are the enemy and my take is both.
this is steve bannon. his web site was meant to undermine and destroy the mainstream media control over the discussion. he has the white house, the biggest bully bull pit. >> emphasis on bully. >> yes. it is good to have somebody to attack for donald trump. >> is it smart to show his cards like that? >> he did it intentionally. he said quote me on this. you are the enemy. that is a declaration of war. what is smart is for the media not to take the bait. >> the media is not a monolithic one thing. not one central planner. i like to say that every administration i ever covered has not liked us or what we have done. has been pushed back. >> they are usually so proud of it. they are not like bragging about it. so listen, it deskn n'doesn't m. we have to do our jobs. we have to do it the best way we
know how. they will do what they will do. >> it could be also a way to n innoculate and highlighting conflicts of interests over the next four years. >> yes. >> swimming in the swamp. the march for life takes to the streets of washington today. including the most high profile speaker in the event's history. can the crowds at this march equal what we saw at the women's march last weekend? ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
