they are instant beneficiaries on the bebelief that no matter what happens, overlooked, they're less effective by potential trade wars, strong dollar and all of that nonsense that hits the big guys. so small is the new big. go figure. see you tomorrow. hello everyone, i'm eric along with kimberly, ebony, dana, and greg. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five." two weeks after winning the election, president-elect donald trump is laying out his vision for his first 100 days in office, in a new video posted on youtube, mr. trump outlines his plan to put america first by focussing on jobs and boosting our nation's economy. among his many goals, here are the highlights from the policy agenda. >> on trade. i am going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the transpacific partnership. on energy. i will cancel job-killing
restrictions on the production of american energy. on regulation. i will form late a role which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. on national security. i will ask the department of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to develop a comprehensive plan to protect america's vital infrastructure from cyber attacks and all other form of attacks. on ethics reform. as part of our the swamp, we will impose a five year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave the administration. and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. >> all right. dana. a lot to unpack in there. i love the fact that there's, you know, a handful of initiatives, a lot of them surrounding the the creation of jobs or bringing jobs back here, bepay treuation of money. unleashing the energy sector, something we see eye o eye on.
regulations in breaking the trade deals. >> some of this he can do on his own. because he's got a pen and a phone now. well, in 52 days. some of it he's going to need congress. one of the things on the transpacific partnership, i think that there's going to have to be something that filling that vacuum though because now we know that china is already pursuing free trade agreements individually then with all of those countries and one of the things president obama was trying to argue with donald trump in the first meeting was that it's important from a strategic political sense, not just in terms of trade, but also in terms of defense. >> for one second. so if he does, in fact go ahead and break the trade agreements. unilateral agreements, they could be strong as well. not only with china, but even with great britain. when britain pull themselves out of the eu, they're going to need some trade partners. >> right. i don't know how it's going to turn out. we'll see. i think a lot of it sounds good in theory, but one of the things also that you need in order for
jobs to come back would be the energy side of things. and tax reform. part of that all of those things happen, and then you deal with the technological innovations that are happening in terms of you don't even have people actually doing manufacturing jobs anymore. a lot of it is turning to robots. so a couple of things there, the other thing si like this idea for every new regulation that is proposed, you have to eliminate two. it's a gray idea and i think it'll be really tough to do because everybody's going to want to have -- will have a reason for why they want to keep a certain regulation. the biggest will be dodd frank on the financial sector. >> can i ask on security. >> if you eliminate two for one, don't you end up at zero? >> yes. >> eventually. >> that's amazing. anyway. go ahead. >> if you start cannibalizing your own regulation over time. security. a lot of national security initiatives. >> yep. >> securing our infrastructure, i think is an important one. people that say we're under cyber attack constantly, our
electricity grid and what not and various food and water supplies. >> yes, what i like here is right away, right out of the gate, hey, this is what we're going to do, we're going to focus on cyber security. keep america great. he's getting it. he understands that this is one of the biggest threats in terms of national security. we've got to lock this down. and he said on national security,s he was going to ask the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to develop a comprehensive plan to protect america's infrastructure. so to me that shows that he's really on the right page and he understands the importance of it and it tells me that he's listening and understanding his briefings. >> greg, you said he needs to get the wall started at some point. we notice the wall is ominously missing from this plan. when should he start that? >> i think he's going to soften everybody up. he's like david robinson, he's moving to the center fast. little basketball -- i had to go to youtube to find out that. it's interesting, he's admitted a connection between climate and
human activity after saying it was a hoax. he's talking about not prosecuting hillary. so you're seeing him -- he's not -- i guess my point is, liberals relax. he's not the crazy right-winged nut job that you think he is. he's always -- when he was talking about this stuff, he was always kind of winking at everybody, and he also has the benefit of a personality. people voted for him because they liked him. they're more forgiving if he changes his mind. >> robinson, they nicknamed the admiral because he came from the navy. he went from a forward position to a center position. >> for what team? >> the san antonio spurs. >> in what year? >> i'm kidding. >> i can't remember. also missing, obamacare, repealing and replacing obamacare. should he get started on that day one? >> i don't think so. i think he starts exactly where he's talking about. tpp and the economic stuff. off country, eric, that's still wide apart on what they think about president-elect trump. right, i think it's very smart and a good place politically and
strategically to start where there is common interest. everybody wants prosperity back. everybody wants us to be better positioned as we go to the trade table. that's smart, and it buys him goodwill to greg's point for people that are still very freaked out about this. if he can demonstrate goodwill in the first three months here about getting america back on track, and in lieu of the wall, you're right, that's missing, but he's talking about re-examining the visa stuff. reinforcing what's already on the books. that doesn't feel so crazy his hysteric, that's following the law and making good sense. and economic benefit to boot. >> can i bring it around the table. what do you think of releasing this via video rather than a press conference? >> i mean, this is something that -- didn't president obama start this? this is just a great way to get stuff out there and you don't have to deal with the hassles of answering questions. it's an easy thing to do. and we're covering it. >> yes. >> it works. >> also if you submitted to a press conference at this point, pretty much -- all -- everything would be picked apart and you'll
say well how and when and why, regulations. >> the follow-up. >> all sorts of questions that there are not answers to yet as they form a government. he doesn't have a cabinet fully formed yet. he hasn't been sworn in. i think it was fine. >> and a smart move base whoond you just said. >> and it's a guide way to bypass the mainstream media and it's totality, we'll get to it later, but this is great. to greg's point. this is a very smart use of new media. i think donald trump is partly in the white house because of his brilliant use anl of this type of media. and it's a good media place to start. >> remember had he used to do videos from his desk. was it years ago and they were so poorly recorded. >> intimate. it's very intimate. >> it was while he was running for president. you remember the -- there was the bowl from the desk. you know, side note, tonight, reince priebus will be on the factor tonight.
questions about this plan. >> i before it he's going to tweet out his executive actions. wouldn't that be interesting? >> tweet them, we could do a poll. >> like one of the online polls. do you like this regulation, yes or no. >> he's got a junk the paris treaty. >> that's not what he's saying. >> what he's saying is, he's going to keep an open mind on climate change. so that way people will go he's not so bad, but the paris treaty. that sucks. >> let me throw one more thing at you guys. >> currency manipulator. i like it one. >> paul wrote a letter saying president obama back off on the iran deal, don't soften anymore sanctions, let us handle it. you're a lame duck. let donald trump, president-elect donald trump take over the iran deal, your thoughts. >> one of the things that we haven't talked that much about is congressman pompeo who was named the director. this is a guy whose been very tough on the obama administration when it came to
iran. one of the things he said is there's the deal, and that is the thing, but we have not followed through on the punishments, right? so the sticks have not been followed through on. and pompeo, i think because he's coming from the house, he's super well informed by all accounts, a wonderful guy, who could be helping on that side of things. and paul ryan also has been very adamant -- actually all the republicans on the iran deal have been strong. and i think what they're concerned about are the sort of rumors that president obama might be able to do something within the next 52 days -- >> he said he was going to. >> not sure what he could do. >> i think he said he was going to reach even further agreement with iran as far as lifting further sanctions. i think this is a god awful idea. >> no kidding. there's a bunch of things that he doesn't need to go through congress. and i think that's going to be important because people are going to be looking for like a manifest change. and his leadership to be demonstrated right away. and there's a bunch that he can like tick off that i think
meaning off the list, that it would be great for him to get throughout to see the dlaex he's going. >> and to that point, he can do stuff through reconciliation, where he doesn't have to give the two. he can just get a simple 51% majority. it's obamacare was pushed through that way. how you get it is how you lose it sometimes. that's a good place to start. >> what's interesting, he's tangling up the normal patterns of opposition, there used to be left and right. when you bring up infrastructure, democrats love to spend -- >> yeah. >> when they hear infrastructure, they get very excited. >> softens the path. >> what happens to the conservative deficit hawks? sho so he starts to create these different oppositions that didn't exist before. >> made a lot of fun of president obama for shovel-ready projects that weren't there. there's some work that needs to be done to figure out the mayors and governors. >> hook up that keystone pipeline. >> steve bannon went to harvard, very, very smart guy said, he makes a good point. if you're going to borrow,
deficit spend, it's borrowing. do it when the interest rates are low like right now and there's indication that interest rates may be rising. >> doesn't that make sense? do you think the feds will do that? >> that's the point, right greg. obama, the policy here remains the same, but the messenger does make a difference. >> i loved obama if he cut taxes and got rid of the irs -- >> the spending, remember, we were going to shut down the government over spending. >> i could ask you in the commercial break for a wholesome answer. do you think the fed will raise rates before president obama leaves? >> i would hope -- artificially keeping them low. donald trump said let them float. themselves already, it's already starting, the rates are starting to go. >> and record close for the dow. president-elect trump's media reset. he's met with top brass over the past two days. has he mended fences with some of the biggest critics? the detail was his sit-downs next. ♪ ♪
so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask about humira, the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists. clearer skin is possible.
earlier this morning, he had abruptly cancelled the sit down accusing the paper of trying to change the ground rules. the times denied that charge. this comes one day after mr. trump met with anchors at trump tower that some described as contentious. after ma meeting, kellyanne conway described it as very cordial. >> fairness is actually not having presumptive negativity written about you and always assuming the worst about you. and i think that donald trump has faced an unprecedented avalanche of critical coverage when he was running and frankly, i think it in part he owes his victory to that. there was a backlash against elites, against those who were telling americans what is important to them. >> all right. so that was her sit down with megyn kelly last night on the kelly file, what do you make of the situation, the storm that seems to be brewing continuously? >> also, i'm trying to figure out, donald trump brought the group over to the new york times
building. that was very interesting to me. everyone had been coming to trump over the last few days. but he went there. and maybe he's extending an olive branch, yes, he said they're fail, he said a bunch of things about them. they've had pretty unfair treatment about donald trump as well. remember all those threats they made that they had tapes. they had a whole bunch of stuff. hopefully maybe there is some sort of, you know, friendship being struck so that at least cover the potus 45 fairly. the tv executives is interesting to me. he brought them in there, and there's some i would think it's pretty rotten. but you know look, he's saying let's try and reset this media arrangement or relationship that we have and i think it's a good thing. hopefully it works. >> and dana, yesterday just hours after sitting down with the media outlets with their reset, let's start this over, let's sit down. then this comes on the heels of it.
the new york times backlash. >> i think it's good, especially if he is -- he was the one that was willing to clear the air. >> yes. >> so that doesn't mean that there's going to be a good relations all the time going forward, the relationship between the press and the government is adversarial. i happen to have a pretty thick skin for negative coverage. i worked for a president that also had that and built it up over many years. i never got yelled at and usually that article wasn't as bad as you thought, even though there were plenty of bad ones. i had a rule, i would always read the article twice before i complained so the reporter. i would just say, if you're in public relations, it's a good way to deal with it. there's another reason that i don't think anybody has brought up yet for him to have good relationships with the media and especially the new york times. there will come a time during his presidency when the paper or another media outlet will get information about a top secret situation. whether it be a program that we use or people that might be on the ground somewhere.
and the media likes to uncover these stories. and there will be times when the administration will have to go to the executives of those media organizations and make their case for why there is a national security risk for that information being made public. the media has a very high bar for that. bush administration didn't always clear it and i think that led to a lot of harm and hurtful efforts to fight terrorism. they would deny that, i think that's true. >> it's interesting the relationship there. all right. so greg, what do you make of it now? how has this been handled? is this the right approach. >> we know one thing about president-elect trump, he cares about what people criticism bothers him. he gets upset. he also likes strange new respect. he likes it when people that don't normally like him end up liking him. maybe he's trying to figure that out. it's easy to go after the media. we do it all the time. they take things out of context.
we, every one of us here has had stuff taken out of context by certain organizations, and it pisss you off, but we've also mocked president obama for being so thin-skinned over fox news. i think i've done four monologues on that about every time he'd mention fox news, we'd go grow up. >> and there's still time. >> mixed feelings because the more time trump spends doing this, maybe the less he'll spend, you know, spending. interesting, you're worried about that? >> little bit of a gator. gator arms over there. >> the reset is important, kimberly, i think they were invited over to trump tower until the media execs and anc r anchors for a spanking. i think donald trump, just a liblts. you know, because obviously he did not appreciate -- >> little trump tap. he didn't appreciate the coverage at all.
and i think in order for him to move forward, donald trump, president-elect trump, that was going to be important for him. now, in terms of the new york times, i think you're bringing up a brilliant and you're right, kind of a point that many of us are not considering, dana, that the goodwill between president-elect is important and not praises around this stuff. there's a much more important piece to that equation. kellyanne conway was right. trump ultimately from the media trying to be small. and tell people what they should be feeling about. so i think this is a good to kind of after the sparnging, sweep it under the rug and move forward with skeptical coverage, but fair and honest. >> good example of what you guys are both talking about is bin laden was killed. all right. media knew about it. and they had to keep that quiet until president obama went to the podium and said it.

critics say they lack diversity and are too ideological and extreme. >> these are radically divisive choices instead of donald trump seeing a way to unify the country, he has chosen division. >> we saw he brought in michelle and nikki haley, but is there really any likelihood of a pick past not a white male? >> they have all ben white men. so the pressure is on. >> looking at the current array of choice, it is a very monochromatic group. and not just monochromatic group, by hard lined group. it would be a smart thing for the trump team to move to get some diversity in order to kind of reassure the many millions of americans who are worried. >> trump transition officials insist that the team president-elect puts together will represent a cross section of america, and goodness gracious, they've only announced three or four picks, greg. do you think you could hold on before they say it's too white and male? >> there's not a single reptile
in the cabinet or a panda. okay. the more that democrats and liberal scream diversity, the more clueless they're going to look. right now -- you're seeing a backlash of identity politics. america wants competence, they don't want quotas. and the noble idea of diversity has now become a parody because it's been said so many times and people are doubting whether talent or character matters. and they're cynical of anything that smacks of intity or quotas. i think the more they do this, the more trump wins by ignoring it. >> i think it's important though to point out greg that those two are not mutually exclusive at all. they want represent a diverse perspective. absolutely. and look, to dana's point, it's been three or four picks. i'm going to say, i am personally very concerned about senator jeff sessions and bannon, however, i am hopeful, and i will remain that way until
i have further proof to feel otherwise around the fact that there are other names in consideration. and michelle reid said that she is not actively spe lly seeking something in the cabinet. hawaiian congresswoman, she's a vet, serious concerns about national security. he's snot afraid to challenge her own party there and apparent lay good meeting with trump yesterday. so let's just let the chims fall is my take on it. >> and dr. ben carson he was running for president, and then he was active surrogate for donald trump, then last week said, i am not going to pursue anything because i don't have experience running the government today. now it sounds like he might end up as a cabinet secretary for housing and urban development. >> trump is like very transparent and president-elect donald trump is transparent in talking about that and mentioning it as well. he has high regard for dr. carson as he should. dr. carson was big supporter of his. right away, and i'll never forget the moment, and you can tell this is the connection with them. and i think it's because the
president-elect would like to have him working by his side and be close to him. during the debates, everybody else walked by dr. carson when he didn't hear his name called. except donald trump stopped. >> and helped him. >> and right there with him and would not go out until dr. carson went out. dr. carson has talked about that on fox -- >> that's interesting. >> and television as well. i think there was some mutual respect there. and they would work well together. and i think dr. carson loves his country, super talented, and if he feel there's a way that there's a calling that he could do something that would benefit the country, i think he would rise to the occasion. >> good for the media to tap the brakes in terms of criticism. >> i'm not sure what they're talking about. the one sound byte, nbc said, except for michelle reid, nikki haley, and as ebony points out except for those three. there's no women. >> and the governor of oklahoma. >> but if you question whether or not donald trump will hire the most competent person versus
whether it's a male, female, black, white, gay, straight, it doesn't matter, look at who he surrounded himself as his closest advisors. it started out from day one she was there. he brought on kellyanne conway to be right next to him throughout the process. ivanka was there, i think ivanka was his strongest surrogate. >> he likes strong women around him. >> stop with the -- at least the gender. now ben carson came along early. donald trump will put on the most competent people, and i'm sure he, yes, maybe they are going to say hey there needs to be more diversity, as far as his cabinet goes, they're the most important people. the people who are going to make the country the safest and greatest. >> quality of opportunity, but not of result. choose the best people. >> everybody should be able to enjoy their turkey day. >> oh wow. >> definitely keeping me up at night. >> worry kbpd. >> i don't think i was going to make it. >> all right. >> i think that's all that we have on it. guys, we don't have anymore picks to talk about. we will continue to flool story.

inaugurated. he doesn't wish to pursue the charges. it sends strong message, tone and content to the members. i think hillary clinton still has to face the fact that a majority of americans don't find her to be honest or trust worthy. if donald trump can help her heal and perhaps that's a good thing. i do -- look, i think he's thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the president of the united states. and things that sound like the campaign aren't among them. >> so, eric, do you think this is all hurts president-elect trump? particularly his base and followers who, you know, very much seem out for blood for hillary clinton. do you think at this point he's won, he is talking ambitiously about his first 100 days and they are going to give him permission to move on? >> i think this is settled. i don't think donald trump has moved on, i think what he said is he's not interested a pushing for a special which theens that the investigation will continue to go forward. i'm not even sure he can say
it's going to stop right now. i think the fbi would want to continue the investigation, but, again, reince priebus tonight, i'm going ask him, does this mean it's over? is it all over? what if there's no new evidence? >> the attorney general and if it's jeff sessions then he's going to review the files and the different cases that are pending and determine what track to go forward, et cetera. that's how it's going to be an effort. it's not that the president has the authority to directly order the attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor. >> he could though. couldn't the president ask the attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor? >> it doesn't necessarily work exactly like that. to be honest. the thing is it's going to be important here is that also congress is going over this and that's going to be the direction that i think it's going to take. i don't think that president-elect trump is going to step in the way of anything like that. he's just saying that he is not personally going to direct or
continue, but there are other avenues that legally and lawfully can be followed. >> and for clarity, it would be premature that president-elect to do that. >> greg, you don't like spending money. do you have worries about hillary clinton costing more money? >> it just proves that campaign rhetoric is all lies. this was for the base. this was red meat and e once you're in office it turns into tofu. breitbart ain't happy, broken promise. you know who's really upset about this, bill. he almost had the place to himself. now he's got to take his name off tinder, and he's got to return all those leather goods. >> okay. >> is that true? >> the leather thing? >> yes. >> there's a discount place. >> no, not for you. >> dana, do you think people in general care about this? other than just kind of red meat base. do you think america wants to
see trump and his administration spending time and money on this or do you think? >> i don't know. i guess we'll have to see. this is a long way from locker up which was the chant at all of the rallies since right before the convention. but i think for his base, winning was enough. they're like fine, they get to wake up every morning and oh my gosh, my guy is going to be the president. they don't to want see that. plus from a pr perspective, i see it both ways. for the trump campaign or i should say future administration, let's just say that it all continues and the house and senate are pursuing their investigations with it'll be headlines for as far as the eye can see. do you really want to take up front page space talking about hillary clinton every week? i don't think so. however, if you're hillary clinton, do you want in your, in the history page in the wikipedia page forever that donald trump was actually so benevolent that he made sure not to prosecute you and you're saying, wait, i didn't do
anything wrong, i'd rather have my day in court? ting cuts both ways. >> to that point people are saying president obama would be doing her a disservice if they offered a pardon in advance. >> she'd probably take it. >> one is better than two in the bush. okay. >> take a chance on that. >> you know you can pardon people for like perspective things? >> yeah. >> they get ab solved. >> for crimes not committed. things currently in prosecution. >> things you might think about doing. how about that? greg, you might be one of those. >> i was just thinking that. >> president-elect trump should nominate her for supreme justice. >> very interesting. >> probably get confirmed. >> she would. >> maybe. >> let bygones by bygones. >> there's no money in that people. >> copy of the constitution before, you know, she takes that. >> by the way, bowlings, president-elect trump, once he's president, if i believely, he
can suggest, but he cannot appoint. >> right. >> he can just nominate, that's. all right, expunge are you dreading talking about this at thanksgiving? thoughts and suggestions to survive the political divide. that's up next. thank you for dining with us. hope to see you again soon. whoa, whoa, i got this. just gotta get the check. almost there. i can't reach it. if you have alligator arms, you avoid picking up the check. what? it's what you do. i got this. thanks, dennis! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. growwwlph. it's what you do. oh that is good crispy duck.

talking about how devicive this election is and how thanksgiving might end up with silent feuds all around the table. i blame the 1960s. which spawned the leftist slogan the personal is political. which links personal experience with political movements, obviously. so if you weren't a liberal, morally flawed, you weren't just wrong, but evil. but now today, discream is a novelty for many people. an 18-year-old in 2008 weaned on the daily show diet made it to age 26 without ever facing a single contrary opinion. which is why when their bubble burst on november 8, the champions of diversity now demand complete silence. if you bring up trump, it's
over. oddly, i haven't lost a single friend over this because i have so few. but also, i don't talk politics beyond this table. here's why. live long enough and you see how little of the hysteria on either side ever really rings true. obama was never that bad or that great. and the same's probably going to go for trump, but cable news magnifies the friction and facebook delivers it from familiar faces. it's all noise, that ultimately gets reabsorbed into the mundane rhythm of daily life. if your friends or family don't return to the table, relax, they weren't that close to you to begin with. and that means more food for all of us. so, dana, do you have any -- have you ever had a falling out like that with anybody or everybody in your family think the same way? you must have had friends at some point before becoming a republican. >> i also learned manners. >> i forgot that. >> civility. >> yes, you have. >> and trying to keep -- my big
thing, i want everyone to get along. >> that's true. >> i would think this year the mom can just declare thanksgiving dinner a politics-free zone. >> yeah. >> and if anyone starts bringing up politics, make them put a dollar in the jar. >> dollar in the jar. >> i remember actually one thanksgiving right after my parents got divorced, we were living in san diego. and we weren't going back to england for thanksgiving obviously. and my husband and i went to hamburger mary niece san diego. and we watched the sunset, it was great. the green flash, that's where it was. it was on the beach. >> thank you for that. never knew why she got that nickname. eric, do you have friends in the other side of the spectrum? >> no. >> our next door neighbors who were sure were going to win were so friendly and so happy and they were just thrilled, and poor -- changed on them? >> the they did donald trump won, we happened to bump into them and she was just beside
herself. we love you, we're still friends, but liberal, everything you outline is liberal. liberalism is on life support in america. republicans have the white house, we have the senate, 51, you have about 25 lead in the house right now. 18 senate seats are up for -- democrats are going to have defend governorships. what do you want out of governors? the country has spoken saying we tried that for a long time, now let's try conservatism, republicanism, whatever form you want to call it, different from what it was. it'll be a nice discussion on that. >> behind on the city us. >> body count. >> it's true. >> well, talk about house divided. my mother and her older sister, my saunt super duper hillary clinton. very delawavastated. humongous trump supporter. my grandmother is still rocking.
