7:03 am
annual retreat. huge items on the legislative agenda like how to replace obamacare, the trillion dollar stimulus he's talked about and republicans want specifics but, george, i am told that president trump is going there in part because he wants to talk about the issue of voter fraud, the unsubstantiated charges of massive voter fraud and would like congress to investigate that, as well and i am told by a senior administration official we could see a presidential directive as early as today ordering an investigation by the executive branch. >> so we'll have an executive branch and congressional investigation even though you already learned overnight at least three of his associates were registered in two states, one problem he identified. the executive orders -- on immigration. >> that illustrates the problem, by the way, they say. >> we're getting a lot of pushback. some conservative groups appreciate what the president is doing on enforcement and aclu saying this is a deportation force on steroids and big city mayors across the country pushing back against the president on immigration.
7:04 am
>> reporter: and they're saying essentially they will defy the order, also governors, one quote from andrew cuomo, the governor of new york, he said as i've said before i say again today, if there is a move to deport immigrants, i say start with me. of course, it should be noted governor cuomo was born if queens, new york. >> the mexican president saying he's not going to pay. for the wall and in discussions with the administration. >> he addressed the mexican people saying mexico does not believe in walls. i've said it once. i'll say it again, mexico will not pay for any wall and mexican sources tell us he's considering canceling his visit that was planned next week to washington to meet with president trump. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. president trump talked to our david muir, that first network interview we all were watching last night, david. good morning. >> good morning, great to be with you. you heard jon say he'll press this with congressional republicans that there were
7:05 am
millions of illegal votes and why he lost the popular vote. we asked where is the proof. we'll begin with this moment about torture and after something he told me during the campaign and something he might now disagree with, some of his top cabinet members he's counting on. take a look. the last president, president obama said the u.s. does not torture. will you say that? >> well, i have a general who i have great respect for, general mattis who said -- i was a little surprised, said he's not a believer in torture. as you know, mr. pompeo was just approved, affirmed by the senate, he's a fantastic guy. he'll be the head of the cia and you'll have somebody fabulous as opposed to the character that just got out who didn't -- was not fabulous at all, and he will, i think, do a great job. and he is, you know, i haven't gone into great detail, but i
7:06 am
will tell you i have spoken to others in intelligence and they are big believers in as an example waterboarding. >> you did tell me. >> they say it does work. it does work. >> mr. president -- >> now, personally -- >> you told me during one of the debates you would bring back waterboarding and a hell of a lot worse. >> what i want to do is 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 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 people to chop off the citizens or anybody's heads in the middle east because they're christian or muslim or anything else. i don't want -- look, you are old enough to have seen a time
7:07 am
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 and we're not allowed to do anything. we're not playing on an even field. i will say this, i will rely on pompeo and mattis and my group and if they don't want to do, that's fine. if they do want to do, then i will work toward that end. i want to do everything within the bounds of what you're allowed to do legally. but do i feel it works? absolutely i feel it works. >> so you'd be okay with it as president? >> no, i will rely on general mattis and i am going to rely on those two people and others and if they don't want to do it, it's 100% okay with me. do i think it works, absolutely. >> and after telling congressional leaders he invited to the white house that he lost the popular vote because of millions of illegal votes, we asked, where is the proof? >> you have people that are registered who are dead, who are
7:08 am
illegals, who are in two states. you have people registered in two states. they're registered in new york and in new jersey. they vote twice. there are millions of votes in my opinion -- now, i'm -- >> you're now president of the united states. when you say -- >> of course, i want the voting process to be legitimate. >> but what i'm asking, what i'm asking, when you say in your opinion millions of illegal votes, that is something that is extremely fundamental to our functioning democracy, a fair and free election. >> sure, sure. >> you say you're going to launch an investigation. >> sure, done. >> what you have presented so far has been debunked. it's been called false, i -- >> look at the pew reports. >> i called the author of it last night. he told me they found to evidence. of voter fraud. >> really. why did he write the report? >> he said no evidence -- >> excuse me. why did he write the report? according to the pew report then he's groveling again. i always talk about the reporters that grovel when they want to write something that you want to hear but not necessarily millions of people want to hear.
7:09 am
or have to hear. >> so you've launched an investigation. >> we'll launch an investigation to find out. >> and we just heard that he'll ask congress as well. you talked about obamacare with the president. lots of big promises on the replacement, not a lot of clarity on how he'll do it. >> we heard from so many viewers going into this interview and seen the estimate, 18 million americans could lose their health insurance if obamacare is repealed. we asked president trump about that because he told "the washington post," i want insurance for everyone. that sounds like universal coverage. he said what my plan is i want to take care of everybody and when we said does that mean no one loses their health insurance on obamacare right now or ends up with anything less, he said, well, i can't promise, you know, no one will. he said we're talking about millions of people but he said my plan is i want to take care of everyone. we know the debate on capitol hill is access to health care or will you have the insurance you have right now. >> that's the big one. martha, we'll bring you in. his comments on waterboarding and he says he believes that it does work and is effective
7:10 am
though he did say he's going to listen to his appointees. >> and he will listen to his appointees at this point but i think what donald trump did in that interview, david, is he said exactly what he had been saying in the campaigns, in that debate and yet he can now pass it off to his cabinet members and say, look, general mattis and i think we all remember what general mattis apparently said to president trump, which was, look, i don't really think it works, i think maybe a cigarette and a beer will work better, so donald trump can say he's listening to general mattis. he's listening to mike pompeo, but then still appeal to those voters who put him in there because of those tough words about -- >> you said something that struck me. when he referred to the safe zones in syria. >> yeah, he said, david, that -- he also said that in the campaign, that he would have safe zones in syria. that is so complicated, so expensive. he can try to get other countries to do something like that to protect some people in
7:11 am
syria but it's very difficult, does it mean he will send in u.s. troops? is it that important that he'll send u.s. troops to protect people in syria? >> we're getting a lot of pushback, jon karl, on capitol hill also on this enhanced interrogation and torture. >> reporter: john mccain said explicitly the president can sign whatever orders he wants, but we are not bringing torture back, not in the united states. but i have to tell you that my discussions with senior administration officials here is that the president's going to do what he told david muir, what he told david, he's going to listen to secretary mattis on this, even as he believes torture works there is no effort to bring back those advanced interrogation techniques at least not yet. >> such a wide-ranging interview, other topics. i was struck when you asked about those million marchers the day after the inauguration all around the world. >> it was interesting. we were walking along the colonnade. i said could you hear the marchers? they were right in front of the
7:12 am
white house. he said i couldn't hear them but i did ask him, you are their president now. do you sense a responsibility to reach out to them? he said there's going to be another march this weekend, a pro-life march that will be even larger, perhaps and i said, you know, we don't want to compare crowd sizes. i wonder if you feel you need to unite the country. he said, i do, i do sense that responsibility but then he added but we just had an election. >> and we're going to have much more from you coming up. i know you'll have more on "world news tonight" but also in our next half hour. all right, david, thank you. michael. >> thank you, robin. now to the stock market. closing over 20,000 -- over the 20,000 mark for the first time ever and our chief business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is at the new york stock exchange with more. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, michael. here at the new york stock exchange they have the hats to commemorate the occasion, the first time in its 120-year history that the dow is now above 20,000.
7:13 am
this is a rally that has been going on since 2009. the end of the great recession. stocks have been on the up-trend but been turbocharged on the prospect of lower taxes, lower regulations and infrastructure spending, all things positives for corporate america and corporate america's bottom line. as far as americans go, it's also a positive for those americans who do own stocks, act 52% of americans have some form of retirement savings and the average increase has been about $6,000 for those accounts. now for the broader america, this really comes down to what company doss with those profits. and do they pass them along in the form of new wages and new jobs. >> all right to amy for the other top stories with the big fire close to seattle.
7:14 am
>> yeah, that's right. the video has been coming in overnight as flames engulfed. take a look at this apartment complex in lynnwood, washington. the building under construction and it collapsed. at least 150 people in nearby buildings had to evacuate. two firefighters have been injured. but are expected to be okay. and in chicago police say six people have been shot including a 12-year-old girl during a memorial service for another shooting victim. president trump has warned he will send in the feds if chicago can't control the violence. the white house has said he was referring to federal aid. and emergency crews in iowa have been battling wind and snow while scrambling to clean up a leak from a broken gas pipeline. nearly 140,000 gallons of diesel spilled. officials say it appears the water supply has not been contaminated. finally it's being called smonday, the monday after the super bowl and one company says we should all get that day off. >> yay. >> it's my birthday too. heinz has released this video featuring people dressed up as ketchup and mustard to promote
7:15 am
an online petition to make smonday a holiday and their setting the example using the money it could have spent on a super bowl ad to instead give all of its salaried workers that day off. this applies to thousands of workers. i'm all about that trend spreading. >> always got to wait for it. >> thank you. you slipped in about your birthday, nice. we'll celebrate the life, the legacy of mary tyler moore who as you know passed away wednesday at the age of 80. she changed the game for so many women, both on screen, off. yeah, she turned the world on with that smile. ♪ who can turn the world on with her smile ♪ >> for many, it was mary tyler moore. >> associate producer. can you believe that? >> reporter: reaction from fans, friends and co-stars pouring in honoring the legendary actress. longtime friend, carol burnett telling us -- >> she will be missed and she

7:34 am
>> and they go shuffling. >> chris connelly will join us and "people" magazine executive editor kate coyne. kate let me start with you. mary tyler moore already famous when she finished up as laura petrie. so it was a bit of a risk to take on this role of mary richards. >> a wife and a sidekick so to then launch into a role in which she's not anybody's wife or girlfriend or daughter even but she's an independent career woman not focused on finding love, not focused on landing a man but focused on making it after all. that took tremendous courage, a lot of guts went into making a move like that career-wise. >> it was so wonderful to see how even behind the scenes how she became such a great producer and just really was able to -- a huge force. >> absolutely. >> revolutionary at that time. chris connelly, let's hear from you. >> hey. >> what is it about "the mary tyler moore show" and her performance in it that still resonates today?
7:35 am
>> i think she was the first woman character on television who got laughs by being good at her job. you know, we saw people like lucille ball, vitameatavegamin, a comic genius, and she made us laugh by not being good at what she was doing. mary tyler moore as mary richards was always good at her job and managed the egos and insecurities of her co-workers in a way our heart went out to her for. she was stable and smart. she wasn't perfect but she was honest the whole way and we just loved her for it and made her a really strong role model for people watching a strong single woman in the workplace for the first time on television. >> speaking of that it was the 1970s, this show and mary tyler moore herself was brave enough to take on sensitive women's issues, birth control, equal pay, sexual independence, how much of an impact did the show have, kate, and how big of a role did she have specifically in pushing these issues on the show? >> it had a huge impact. i don't think you could really think about a show from "murphy brown" to "30 rock" to "sex and
7:36 am
the city" existing without the path blazed by "the mary tyler moore show." additionally because it was produced by mtm productions, as a producer mary tyler moore had a tremendous say in the way that mary richards was portrayed. that was thanks to her and the fights that she had. fights that she had, you know, backed by a team of female writers, i mean, there was a huge pool of women writers for "the mary tyler moore show" also which was completely groundbreaking at the time. >> and, chris, one more question for you. mary tyler moore received an oscar nomination for her role in "ordinary people" which was against type for her. how significant was that role? >> well, it was very significant, of course, it was robert redford's first directorial project and cast her because he saw her walking on the beach alone at one point and realized there was this whole other side that we hadn't seen. that role of an icy shattered mother was so powerful and, in
7:37 am
fact, because we remembered mary richards and remembered mary tyler moore and to see her going through that made that part even more powerful and she was great in it and got an oscar nomination. >> chris remembers this too going back to "the mary tyler moore show." in the first year it was she might make it after all then they changed it to she's going to make it after all and, boy, did she. >> she sure did. sharing her personal struggles as well. helped a lot of people there. a lot more coming up. up next president trump gives david muir a tour of his office, his new digs and he'll tell us what it was like in that car ride to the capitol hill with president obama in that abc news exclusive. news exclusive.

>> there were numerous lines, so well written, so thoughtful, so thoughtful and in the drawer, you know, put in the drawer which is a custom but i doubt too many of them were written in this manner. he -- in fact, i called him and thanked him for the thought that was put into that letter. >> 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. he said something that was very interesting to me. he said, you know, if i thought your health care plan was going to be better than his plan, obamacare, i would support it and i believe he would. i believe he would. >> what was that car ride like to the capitol hill when you got into the car with the president
7:43 am
who was about to leave and you were about to -- >> the amazing thing to me and he may say differently is that we, i think have sort of a great relationship and yet it was a vicious campaign and vicious things were said by him and by me about each other and then we're riding in a car together up pennsylvania avenue and i'm saying to myself, i actually said to him, this is a little weird, isn't it, huh? but we really -- we didn't discuss the negative. we only discussed the future and the positive. and we really get along well. >> president trump told me he did call president obama after reading that letter. there was one other thing, the size and scope of the white house, not as big as trump tower, the penthouse he's been living in until now. i did ask him president obama took great pride in finishing the workday and head to the family residence to have dinner with his family and the first lady melania is here in new york taking care of barron, very important duty but i said does it get lonely at the end of the day. he's there at the white house by himself.
7:44 am
he said, listen there's a lot of work to do on this country and i don't get lonely. i did wonder about that. does he watch cable news? he's on twitter. >> but for you walking through the white house with the president, what was the most powerful moment for you. >> well, you know, his willingness to show the letter from president obama and he did pull the letter out, and it was interesting to me. we've all looked at these letters that presidents have written to the person coming in. this was a very long letter. and you can tell president obama took a lot of time and i was dying to read it. maybe next time. >> we all want to know what was in the letter. >> great job, david. thank you very much for sharing that. i know you'll have much more tonight on "world news tonight"? see you in a few hours. >> get some rest. coming up here on our big board, red panda on the loose at a virginia zoo. the search right now. dare i say, amy, panda-monium. >> very nicely done, robin. >> you love that. >> you love that.

board and one of my all-time we are back now with our big board and one of my all-time favorites, tom rinaldi is here at the table. his story in just a moment and another one of my favorite, we're going to start with that 19-month-old red panda on the loose in norfolk, virginia, escaping monday night. a search is under way and our wildlife expert and dear friend ron magill will join us now with more on this. so tell us what's going on here, ron. this is happening a lot. >> well, you know, this panda, the zoo's released a statement saying they're hoping it's on zoo grounds but it's breeding season january through march so hormones are raging and has extra incentive to find a mate. that may be what they do. great climbers and have almost like opposable thumbs. they can grip things. if there's a way out they can find split wow. but, ron, this is the latest in a several incidents that happened. a gorilla that broke out in london and a chimp in japan that escaped. what is going on at these zoos?
7:48 am
>> it's very dramatic when an animal like that escapes but put it in perspective because it's almost like a plane crash. when there's a plane crash, all of a sudden people go, oh, my gosh, flying on a plane is dangerous. in reality thousands of planes, millions flying every second without a problem. there are thousands of zoos around the world, hundreds of thousands if not millions of animals under human care. very rare that something like this happens but when it happens it gets a lot of attention but not something people have to worry about. the majority of zoos are doing a great job in keeping their animals contained. >> hopefully they find the panda. no more panda-monium. thank you. now coming up, sibling rivalry renewed. overnight serena and venus williams both advancing to the australian open finals but the sisters will face off in a title match for the first time since 2009 and, tom, you're here to talk about that. when they met in 2009 at wimbledon, serena came out on top. what can we expect this time?
7:49 am
>> first of all, let's take a breath and talk about what a back to the future moment this is. we were talking earlier, robin, about serena, look, there's a lot at stake. she can reclaim the number one ranking. she can win her 23rd major title pulling ahead of steffi graf which is all amazing but for venus williams diagnosed with sjogren's syndrome. in 2011, robin, you know all about it, fell out of the top 100 in the world. it's more than a comeback, it's a revelation trying to win her first major title since 2008, of course, she faces her sister to do it, the 15th meeting in a grand slam. it's absolutely improbable and incredible and we've seen a remarkable reaction from each of them talking about what it means to them. >> i can't help but think of their parents, their mom and dad and how they knew this was going to happen and many people said they weren't focusing enough on tennis and will be distracted and here at this age here they are again.
7:50 am
speaking of age, six of the eight players who made it to the semifinals in their 30s. >> so you're saying there's hope. you're saying that we've got a chance. >> i think it's remarkable in a couple of different ways, the game has become even more physical and even with that, so many of these players who have now discovered their great maturity and fitness in 30s and travel with physios, trainers and teams around them. make no mistake, these are transcendent talents pulling it off, roger federer, rafael nadal and the williams sisters. >> they have the experience to go with it. >> you know about that. yeah. >> 36. i was an old man. >> hey, thank you, tom. doesn't he look dapper? >> i need to steal that outfit. coming up, ginger has the story behind this incredible image, snow bursting through a child's window. what's going on here? she'll tell us. ng on here? she'll tell us. ew, really? oh, it's our verizon bill look at them. line access fee, administrative fees,

>> another major issue david discussed with president trump, torture, the president said he believes waterboarding works. but said he will follow guidance from his defense secretary and cia director who have rejected it. the mayors of several big cities are threatening to defy president trump's executive order on immigration which cuts funding to so-called sanctuary cities that do not enforce immigration laws. thousands gathered here in new york vowing to very cyst what they call the president's anti-immigrant policies. the mayor of seattle is saying his city will not be bullied by trump's order and the mayor of boston offered to shelter immigrants inside city hall which was lit up in red, white and blue. meanwhile, overnight mexico's president once again insisted his country will not pay for a border wall. he is reportedly considering canceling his upcoming visit washington. in other news fire crews putting out hot spots after a massive fire collapsed this apartment complex that was under construction. people in nearby buildings had to evacuate and two firefighters were injured. overseas the final victims

>> this moved for you, milla is like a family affair. your husband is writing, director. 9-year-old daughter ever, her acting debut so how was it with the family? >> she was actually 7 1/2 when we filmed it, and i mean she's so fabulous. she's been asking to be an actress since she was 5, which, of course, terrified me, you know, so i said, okay, you got to go to acting classes but it's on the weekend so you might not want to give your saturdays up but she did and -- >> she's incredible. >> she's been in acting class every week since then, and she loves it. >> is she easy to direct? >> you know what, she's amazing. she's so professional but she's a set baby. there's like army brats and movie brats. she's definitely a movie brat in that sense. she feels very comfortable, and i couldn't believe -- i didn't have to go into mom mode at all. >> yeah. >> i mean, you were there. you saw it. she's so -- >> she was incredible. >> -- poised. >> you have two kids of your own. >> i do. you know, it was really funny because we're in this action movie doing so many stunts,

8:50 am
and after three movies together you don't see us pit against each other. women building each other up and don't follow the cliche traps and there's something when we meet girls, they feel empowered and inspired and energized. >> i can't tell you how many women from around the world, especially from countries that don't really want women to get educations, that, you know, just are very conservative in that way and they've seen the movie and they come up with tears going after i saw "resident evil," it really inspired me to go after my dream and go for my goals, and it's unbelievable. >> it's incredible. and blood and guts and zombies but you know what, i remember when i was like way too young to watch it, but i was like 12 and i saw "aliens" on tv and i saw sigourney weaver doing that and you know what, it blew my mind that a woman could do something like that and it inspired me. it changed my life, so -- >> yeah. >> now we're like the sigourney weavers. >> when you talk about meeting
8:51 am
your fans, you've both been to comic-con. what is that experience like? >> so, with claire redfield she's like the human component in "resident evil" so she doesn't have any special powers. she has to rely on skills and, you know, what she actually has and so her instincts, so it's fun to be able to play that and i think people really relate to her in that way and like to think that if they were claire how would they act in that post-apocalyptic world. >> do you have people coming up imagining you're claire? it's insane, taken very seriously. >> this is a fan movie. >> it's just another like reason for people to dress up outside of halloween. >> yeah. >> it's so good. you see ewoks and, you know, you see multiple princess leias everywhere. little baby darth vaders. it's very cute. >> but, you know, i love this film because it is very empowering, and i think for a female-driven franchise, the most successful video game in movie franchise ever. i mean, that's something to be proud of. >> girl. >> you both should be proud of
