>> a republican aide though says that the president's comments were made in jest that he was just joking when he said it. a democratic aide says it was not a joke. >> so there's still back and forth about the whole election. another busy day on tap for president trump starting with a meeting with auto industry executives. the president has already taken swift action with the stroke of his pen involving federal hiring and trade and after a rough start, his press secretary faced the media yet again. abc's jonathan karl was there. >> reporter: in the oval office, president trump making good on his campaign promise to pull out of a major trade deal with asia, the trans-pacific partnership. >> great thing for the american worker what we just did. >> reporter: and in a meeting with business leaders, trump warned of a big new tax if any of them move jobs out of country. >> so a company that wants to fire all of its people in the united states and build some factory someplace else and then thinks that that product is gonna just flow across the border into the united states, that's not gonna happen.

2:34 am
>> reporter: spicer faced the press again. >> is it your intention to always tell the truth from that podium? and will you pledge never to knowingly say something that is not factual? >> it is. 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 that we may mis -- we may not fully understand when we come out, but our intention is never to lie to you, jonathan. >> reporter: spicer acknowledged getting some of the specifics wrong over the weekend, but he stood by the big claim. >> do you stand by your statement that was the most watched inaugural address? >> sure. >> it was the most watched inaugural. when you look at -- you look at just the one network alone got 16.9 million people online. another couple of the
2:35 am
networks -- there were tens of millions of people that watched that online. never mind the audience that was here. 31 million people watched it on television. combine that with the tens of millions of people that watched it online on a device, it's unquestionable. >> reporter: spicer was also asked whether the president ordered him into this battle. >> did he tell you, sean, i'm upset about this, i want you to come out -- >> i'm not going to get into conversations i had with the president. >> president trump also met at the white house with the congressional leadership, both democrats and republicans, house and senate. >> a lot of big agenda items, a lot of the big promises to keep, but no clear path yet on how to get congress to move on the big items like tax reform, obamacare repeal and replacement and what he's going do with infrastructure and jobs. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. and one more note from the white house. just a few days into his first term as president, donald trump is apparently thinking ahead to his second term. he has quietly filed paperwork for the 2020 election. in a note to the federal election commission, mr. trump says, this is not a formal announcement, but it does make him a candidate who can accept contributions and sell those red hats. and now to minnesota where governor mark dayton is expected
