number. the va is one of his top priorities, so -- >> it is a freeze, and part of it is to ensure -- hold on, part of it is to get our va secretary in there and to figure out how we can best because hiring people when you have a system that is not working then just going out and hiring additional people does not seem to be the most efficient way of solving the problem. what we need to do whether it is the va or any other agency is make sure that we are hiring smartly and effectively and efficiently, and i think the va in particular, if you look at the problems that replace people, hiring more people is not the answer, it is hiring the right people, putting procedures in place to ensure our veterans whether it is healthcare, mortgages or get the services that they've earned. and right now, the system is brokening. the freeze is an analysis of of what will make it better. it is not only on the va.

11:10 am
look how he managed himself on his projects. ahead of time and under budget. that's the philosophy he is bringing to the government and white house. not only do we respect the taxpayer in whether or not it is it a highering freeze or money we send in aid. we make sure the money is used well and programs are done in efficiently and effective ways. it is a whole government process. look at what he did with boeing and lockheed. on the planes. we can appreciate it down further. and the pipeline, he inserted pieces to say we negotiate further. if he can get a better deal for the american tax pay per and someone is building something to profit for, can we find a way to insure that the american taxpayer receives a benefit? that would go to the u.s.

11:20 am
about barriers and hiring more people and ability to create more job and keep manufacturing in the united states. you will see more of that and further expanding whether it is of governors or members of different groups in the house and senate to come down here and get their advice and individuals of how to work together to move an agenda. >> can can you tell us who exactly is involved in the review and how long it will take and the options considered. >> i don't want to get too much in details. there is -- i don't want to get on my high horse. he has senior staff on that process now. and obviously secretary of state, cia director and u.n. ambassador, a lot of of the folks haven't been confirmed.
11:21 am
they have in private but they need to get confirmed and get in their department and agencies and get with their staff with the broader feedback. >> really not to belabor a point. the president believes his point. but the power of the presidency to do something about it. why not say he will investigate if he believe bes in the omission if if this there was massesive voter fraud? >> the comment he made 3- 5 million could have voted illegally based on the studies he's seen. he's clear he won the election based on the electorial votes he gochlt we are here on day two. and don't prejudge the future. >> who wouldn't be upset if they lost? he won overwhelmingly with the

a couple of weeks ago, his focus is on the american people and growing jobs. >> and the president said he felt the need -- did he share with the secretary of defense the message an unshackable xhutment -- >> the president is chlor as it is structured in the terms of the output of nato. it is not doing what its mission was set up to do or effective. i think that secretary mattis and others have ideas of how to reare form and make organizations like nato are more effective and benefit from the money put in. and he's not pleased with what he sees with the u.s. contribution and the output it is getting. >> would obamacare allow stateses that want to continue to have it, would will the
11:24 am
president support that type of of legislation and would that go back peculiar on his promise for a full repeal? >> first and foremost. get back to his goal. we are working with congress and the staff has been working on a plan to repeal and replace. his goal first and foremost to give the american people a health care system with that is more affordable and more doctors and plans. how the state uses that? but the man dates requiring people to get things drove out competition and driven up costs is not what he is pleased with. >> let me be clear about the investigation. did you discuss. >> which one. >> the voter fraud? >> no, i did not. anything is possible. >> is it possible.
11:25 am

11:27 am
>> when the senate changed the filibuster rules, they exempted the senate supreme court from that? >> he will appoint a quality associate justice that would hopefully get overwhelming support. his goal is to choose someone that everybody is a jurorist that adheres to the constitution and not legislate from the bench and we should achieve bipartisan support. >> your frustration to the nomination process so far and recommend to the republicans to consider? >> he will hear from them tonight and can i will thank you all and will see you tomorrow. >> that was it. you heard it. his second press conference from the podium and watching up. i am melissa france isz and we'll bring in simon rosenburg and a former clinton campaign

advisor and matt slap. matt he got suck in theed vortex of talking about that whole idea of how many illegal voter and he kind of went asked and answered. he got back into it? why? >> he's being solicitous to the press. and the more than one question and a slight spirit and as the days go forward, melissa, he will say he answered the question and move o. there is a great line. i refer to the gentleman and the answer i gave moments ago. >> melissa: he said i haven't talked to him and i will get back to you. and other things, i can't tell you at the time.
11:29 am
and the speed of his answers. sitting here with shannon we appreciated that we went through things. but he did engage on that question of the illegal voters a number of times which makes me think it is deliberate and trying to keep that conversation alive. >> oh, i don't know. maybe. listen, i know sean spicer and been on paenls with him and he is a very smart guy. this is a tough job and new administration with few people with experience work nothing the white house. it will be bumpy for sometime. it is unfortunate for donald trump that there are questions about truthfulness coming out. what happened on the march or issue of illegal voting. >> melissa: that was not his fault. >> i think it is part p of what
11:30 am
the american people will realize, it is a bumpy ride for the trump administration and let's hope for the country things settle down. >> melissa: matt, the issue of the day. the executive order on numerous pipelines and sean spicer makes the point. they are going to use u.s. steel which is important. not only american labor to create the pipeline and jobs there and reviving an industry he talked about and committing to use those individuals. he made that point a number of time. and this was a win for the trump team, yes or no? >> yes. the problem on the executive orders and actions, melissa, we have to read and digest them. what was really done? the reading allows the u.s. deal to remove encumbrance for them
11:31 am
being competitive. and if the government is making it harder to use domestic products, we ought to remove those barriers. >> melissa: simon what is your take? you will follow in the detail and say we'll help people americans with this? >> the pipeline was going to be built by foreign steel, at least one of them. and the stuff going from canada to other country and not stay here in the united states. i think there is going to be opposition to this and i don't think it will be simple as the administration thinks. it is complicated and he's delivering on his promise. >> melissa: we'll see. president trump promised a conservative pick to replace the late justice anton scalia. we know when the announcement is
