28th time seeing each other on saturday but on this thursday we say good morning. another round of sweeping immigration changes expected from president trump after he signed off on his signature promise, to build a border wall. >> the president talked about his immigration policies in a one-on-one with abc's david muir. his first network interview since taking office. the newly signed executive orders clear the way for construction to begin on the wall almost immediately. increase border patrol forces and penalize sanctuary cities. president trump has a full day heading to philly to address a gathering of republican lawmakers before returning to washington where he's expected to sign another executive order. that one limiting u.s. refugees. >> that was one of many topics the president covered in his interview with david but also offered a bit of reassurance to undocked immigrants who came to the country as children. >> are you going to direct u.s. funds to pay for this wall? will american taxpayers pay for
the wall. >> ultimately it will come out of what's happening with mexico. we'll start those negotiations relatively soon and we will be in a form reimbursed by mexico. >> they'll pay us back. >> absolutely, 100%. >> when does construction begin. >> as soon as we can. >> i want to ask about undocumented immigrants here. they're protected as so-called d.r.e.a.m.ers. the children brought here by their parents. should they be worried they could be deported? anything you can say to assure them right now they'll be allowed to stay. >> they shouldn't be worried. they are here illegally. they shouldn't be worried. i do have a big heart. we'll take care of everybody and have a strong border and a solid border. >> mr. president, you told me during one of the debates you would bring back waterboarding and a hell of a lot worse. >> i want to keep our country safe. i want to keep our country safe. >> what does that mean. >> when they're chopping off the heads of our people and other people and chopping off the heads of people because they
happen to be a christian in the middle east, when isis is doing things that nobody has ever heard of since medieval times would i feel strongly about waterboarding? as far as i'm concerned we have to fight fire with fire. >> you're now the president. do you want waterboarding. >> i don't want heads chopped off because they're christian or muslim. look, you are old enough to have seen a time that was much different. you never saw heads chopped off until a few years ago. now they chop them off and put them on camera and send them all over the world. so, we have that andary not allowed to do anything. i will rely on pompeo and mattis and my group. if they don't want to do, that's fine. if not, i'll do everything within the bounds of what you're allowed to do legally but do i
feel it work, absolutely i feel it works. >> you told "the washington post" your plan to replace obamacare will include insurance for everybody. that sounds an awful like universal coverage. >> it's going to be -- what my plan is i want to take care of everybody. i'm not going to leave the lower 20% that can't afford insurance just so you understand people talk about obamacare and i told the republicans this, the best thing we can do is nothing for two year, let it explode and then we'll go in and do a new plan and the democrats will vote for it, believe me. >> so no one who has this health insurance through obamacare will lose it or end up with less. >> when you say no one, i think no one. you're talking about millions, and then knowing abc you'll have this one person on television saying how they were hurt, okay. we want no one. we want the answer to be no one. >> and about that obamacare replacement plan, he says millions of people will be
happy. >> mexico's president is now responding to the executive action on the border wall. he took to twitter last night declaring again that mexico will not pay for any wall. he said he rejects the u.s. decision and sources say he's now considering canceling a white house meeting with president trump set for next week. mayors of sanctuary cities say they will not be bullied by the trump administration over a threat to pull funding and continue to refrain from holding undocumented immigrants beyond their jail terps or denying bond at the request of federal authorities. boston's city hall was covered in red, white and blue as a same boll that all are welcome. >> all that said in addition to that executive order restricting refugees the president is also expected to sign one focusing on america's role in the united nations. >> abc's stephanie ramos is live in washington with the details on both of those policies. good morning. >> reporter: diane, kendis, good morning. the president confirms he is about to sign an executive action suspending some immigration into the u.s. now, this would be a temporary
ban from certain countries, no word on what countries it will include but trump has been considered a suspension of refugees from iraq, iran, libya, somalia, sudan, syria and yemen. during his interview with david, trump says it will not be a muslim ban. >> it's countries that people are going to come in and cause us tremendous problems. our country has enough problems without allowing people to come in who in many cases or in some cases are looking to do tremendous destruction. >> reporter: the other executive action on the table would drastically reduce america's role in the united nations. a report says there will be at least a 40% decrease in funding from the u.s. toward international organizations. the president has been critical of the u.n. in december calling it a, quote, club for people to have a good time. this all comes as the gop gathers in philadelphia for the annual congressional retreat.
lawmakers say the top agenda items are repealing obamacare and reworking the tax code. protests are already under way in the city. trump arrive there is around noon. british prime minister theresa may will also speak at the retreat today. she'll then head to washington where she'll be the first world leader to meet with the president tomorrow. kendis, diane. >> of course, the other big question, who will the president name to the supreme court? he now says he will release that name next week. so looking forward to that. stephanie ramos live from washington. stephanie, thanks. now to the ongoing gun violence in chicago. last night six people including a 12-year-old were injured in a shooting. >> witnesses said the gunfire happened at a memorial for another victim of violence and claimed that was in retailation for yet another shooting. on tuesday the president tweeted about what he called chicago's horrible carnage. david asked him about that. >> if they are unable to fix it, that's when -- >> so far they have -- it's been going on for years and i wasn't
president. what's going on? so, all i'm saying is to the mayor who came up to my office recently, i say, you have to smarten up and you have to toughen up. >> and addressing a tweet that the president sent about sending the feds to chicago, sean spicer, the press secretary, says the president was referring to providing federal resources to chicago's struggling law enforcement but didn't provide specifics. >> we'll have much more of david's interview including what was in that letter left by president obama on his final day in office. that's a little later on this half hour. also this morning, we are celebrating the life and the legacy of mary tyler moore who passed away after a long illness. >> she is remembered for her pioneering tv roles. first as laura petrie, the wife of an ad man played by dick van dyke and her emmy winning character on the "the mary tyler moore show" that inspired a generation of singing working women. >> the opening sequence of that show is now considered one of the greatest moments in
television history, that famous toss of the cap was actually a last-minute suggestion from the director as mary tyler moore explained to diane sawyer in 2002. >> so whose idea was it to walk out in the middle of an intersection and do that? >> well, there was a man who was directing the opening titles and it was so cold, it was in the middle of january here. it was so cold that lips weren't moving, you couldn't form words and he said, you know what would be a good idea, mary, go out in the middle of the intersection and take that tam off and throw it in the air. it was so cold i couldn't protest. the words weren't forming so i did as i was told. >> probably happy about that. and that hat was a gift from a family member that was actually her hat and in her personal life mary tyler moore was a passionate advocate for juvenile diabetes and protecting animal rights. no word yet on funeral plans but we'll have more later on in this half hour. >> a memorial statue marking that signature move in minneapolis for her. still ahead the big change

that struck you most? >> there were numerous lines, so well written, so thoughtful, so thoughtful. and in the drawer, you know, put in the drawer, which is accustomed, but i doubt too many of them were written in this manner. in fact, i called him and thanked him for the thought that was put into that letter. >> i have to say i have looked at a lot of those presidential letters that they have left for the next president. >> right. >> that one looks a lot longer than the ones that i have seen. >> it was long. it was complex. it was thoughtful, and it took time to do it, and i appreciated it, and i called him and thanked him. >> was there something he said in that letter that surprised you? >> well, i think nothing that surprised me, but it was stated beautifully but that i'm representing a lot of people, and i'm carrying on a very important tradition and just do a great job. he wants me to do a great job.
