he's about to make announcements for nominees for secretary of state and treasury secretary. the top names on that list, long on loyalty, not so long on experience. >> well, first of all, i won't be attorney general. >> reporter: thought to be a front-runner for attorney general, former new york city mayor rudy giuliani is now seen to be president-elect trump's topic for secretary of state. his main competition, former u.n. ambassador john bolton. >> john would be a very good choice. >> is er i don't know. >> reporter: giuliani, a trump loyalist and former u.s. attorney has limited foreign policy experience. bolton a hard right hawk on defense has advised several republican administrations. bolton wrote last year, the only way to stop iran's nuclear program was to bomb iran. >> a lot of hard work going on upstairs. >> reporter: campaign finance chairman steve mnuchin has been recommended as treasury secretary.

in that conversation mr. trump said he hoped to forge a strong relationship with the russian government and if possible the russian people. >> major, thanks. there are new questions this morning about the role the president-elect's children will play in his administration. cbs news has learned mr. trump's transition team is exploring how some of his kids could get top secret security clearances. the potential move is raising some ethical concerns. julianna goldman broke this story and is in washington with what she's >> reporter: good morning. the sources tell us that the president-elect, donald trump's transition team is looking to designate some of his adult children as national security advisors, that they then be able to receive the top secret security clearances. even if it doesn't happen during the transition, trump would still be able to put in the request once he becomes president. now looking at the rules here, nepotism rules prevent him from hiring them to work in the white
them from serving as unpaid or formal advisors. to put this in perspective, it's common for private citizens to get top secret security clearances but family members are a totally different story. former in telly against and white house officials say trump's request is truly unprecedented given that his kids don't have national security backgrounds. now ethics watchdogs are sounding alarm bells. they say the fact that trump wants his children armed with access to some of the nation's top secrets raises emo question about the potential conflicts of interest with them playing roles in the trump administration while also running the family business and whether they could use the intelligence for their financial interests. now, norah, last night a transition official told reporters that the president-elect did not request this step and that trump's children have not filled out any paperwork about security clearances. the official added, quote, it's not something i'm expecting right now. >> all right. great original reporting, julianna. thank you so much.
the nation reporter john dickerson is here. as julianna first reported, this would be unprecedented for trump children or any children of a president to have these top secret security clearances. what do you make of it. >> well, you know, the whole basket of issues related to the trump family and the trump operation is really interesting. we just spent a big campaign going through the connections between the trump foundation and the clinton admist influence was being sought by various people through various connections so that seems all in play here. so whatever happens, presumably if they want to drain the swamp, the relationship with the family and the business would be very open and above boards or the walls between the two would be very high if the -- president trump wants to keep faith with the promises he made and all the criticism he leveled during the campaign. >> can we talk about president obama's news conference yesterday? it went on much longer than i think most people thought but he
cautionary, complimentary and seemed to be sending messages to many different people. what was your take away? >> i think the biggest message he was sending was to those who were worried about donald trump as a president, he was saying the office of the presidency slows you down, which is funny, because that's what those people were critical of him about. the change wasn't coming fast enough. he was saying, you may not have liked it then but now you can take comfort in that because change is slow. he kept talking about the constraints on the president and the rules and the norms you have to follow. now the use of that word is interesting because if there's one thing that defined donald trump's presidential campaign, it was norm breaking. >> yeah. >> that's what worries people. he'll break through the norms. >> he was almost flattering of the president which was a remarkable turn around. >> yeah. right there -- they're both flattering of each other but president obama was saying he's not ideological. he was sending him flattery and
ahead of yourself here, get a good staff in place, don't try and be too radical. recognize that you have to be slow in what you do. >> what do you think the point of that flattery was? >> i think to get the message across to donald trump. about how they have sought to speak to him through the television and that that's effective. and it felt very much like the president was sending messages to supporters first but also to donald trump in that press conference. >> and complimenting what he's done, what donald trump has done. >> that's right. and recognizing it and paying think also if you want to be totally crass and political for a moment, if he's going to criticize him later, he needs to not look like he criticized him right out of the box so people will say -- >> and he did not criticize the appointment of steve bannon. >> he did not although he did it not on bannon's specific grounds. he said i'm not going to talk about every single pick. >> and, remember, obama's planning to live in washington for the next couple of years as his daughter finishes high
town. >> here's the question i wanted to ask. george w. bush set a precedent not to talk about his successor. is president obama going to do that? >> let's talk about who president-elect trump is considering for the top posts. >> it's fascinating. as major pointed out, loyalty. that is -- here's the challenge with donald trump, with any presidency, once you surround yourself with loyalists you cocoon. all of your thinking gets wrapped into a >> does loyalty trump experience do you think? >> in this case it does. that's not always a bad thing except when loyalty creates that reinforcing circle of people around you, john kennedy discovered this very early, where you get into group think and especially if you have a strong person who can't be told no. on the other hand, you need loyalists who can tell the chief executive no because he trusts them. that's where the family is super important. >> john dickerson, so much to
ohio state university student is facing charges for allegedly hitting an anti-trump supporter. that's a hard knock. video captures the man slamming into the protestor who was knocked down the stairs. campus police took him into custody. more than 5,000 seattle students walked out of classes to protest the election. two men who were not students were arrested. more than 1,000 students swarmed a downtown plaza. some carried signs that said no hate, no racism, no trump. president obama touched down in greece this morning at the start of his final trip abroad while in office he joins the greek president at an arrival ceremony. at a news conference minutes ago president obama talked about the motivation of voters who elected donald trump to replace him. >> perhaps the view of the american people was is that just
prescriptions that are being offered, whether brexit or with respect to the u.s. election ends up actually satisfying those people who have been fearful or angry or concerned. >> margaret brennan is traveling with the president in athens. she's near the a crkacropolous. >> reporter: good morning. president obama is addressing a eu t they worry that his actions will match his campaign rhetoric. at question is whether america will keep its commitments. he will stand by nato, europeans worry that his friendly outreach to russia means that vladimir putin will have free rein to do as he pleases. there's concern that the historic agreements brokered by the u.s. with european help may now be in jeopardy.
deal and the international climate change agreement. so any suggestion that america will retreat from global leadership really concerns europe, which is already struggling with brexit. , high unemployment, and the rise of nationalist groups here in germany, the u.k. and in france. gayle, president obama has his work cut out for him trying to reassure these long-term allies even though what president trump will do. dry weather and drought conditions across the south are fueling an explosion of wildfires. thousands of acres have burned and heavy smoke is raising air quality concerns. dozens of fires are still burning in north carolina, georgia, tennessee and other stays. mark strawsman is in the northern georgia town of clayton right now. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. all of this charring comes from the rock mountain fire which has
smoke here is so thick residents are being urged to wear air masks like these whenever they go outside. more than 70 wildfires stretch across eight southern states. they have already charred more than 100,000 acres and forced evacuations. >> i'm concerned. it was up there and now it's down to here. it's unnerving. it's terfy >> reporter: in north carolina flames are threatening structures. >> we have california wildfires in north carolina. >> more than 20 wildfires are burning in north carolina, many of them investigated for suspected arson. >> the way this fire is, it's totally different. this is the worst thing that i've ever been involved in. >> reporter: from the flames, massive plumes of smoke, so much that dozens of counties are facing air quality advisories. a view from nasa shows the extent of the smoke.
>> i have twins with asthma. 12-year-old twins. being outside with them i've noticed them coughing. >> reporter: making it especially difficult for firefighters, dry conditions and severe drought that plague much of the region. nearly 40% of the southeast is facing drought, 3/4 of alabama and half the state of georgia. >> i've got faith that they're going to get it out and that we're going to be okay. >> reporter: another sense of 5,000 firefighters on the ground from as far away as colorado and california and in this continuing drought there is no rain in the forecast. norah? >> that is tough, mark. thank you so much. gwen ifill is being remembered this morning as a pioneering journalist. the pbs news hour co-anchor died monday of cancer. she was 61 years old. ifill leaves behind a legacy of tough but fair reporting during her ground breaking career.
most sensitive and difficult topics. >> i'm judy woodruff. >> and i'm gwen ifill -- >> reporter: when gwen ifill joined judy woodruff in 2013 to form the first all national woman anchor team it wasn't the first time she broke down barriers. >> i have a flat spot on the front of my forehead trying to break down walls. >> reporter: her career brought her to the washington post where she covered the first of presidential elections and then "the new york times" where she covered the white house. in 1994 she made the jump to television joining nbc. >> and to our new senior correspondent gwen ifill. welcome, gwen. >> thanks, jim. >> in 1999 she moved to pbs where she spent the rest of her career which included multiple stints moderating debates and the historic 2008 election of america's first african-american president. >> it provided the frame for a
life. >> she was an especially powerful role model for young girls who admired her tenacity and intellect. >> prum honored that. gwen was a broadcasting pioneer. her words to charlie rose in 2009 are especially poignant today. >> and your hopes for barack obama? >> my hope is the same i would have for any president, which is that he succeeds. i think you always hope for too much at stake for him not to. >> such a shock yesterday. >> such a shock yesterday. >> i didn't know she was ill. >> no. i had known she was ill. she was very quiet about it. her office was next to mine at nbc so she was a mentor to me as a very young yournlist. john, you sat? for her many times. >> the thing is, the first person would have e-mailed to say i'm sorry you lost your friend would have been gwen. she was a great journalist but
person. >> you wrote a beautiful tribute to her. you never prepared more for an appearance than when you were going to be on her show. worthy. >> you want to be worthy of her. since i wrote that, the number of people who sent me e-mails and said, you know, little people, just starting out that she helped. she helped all of us in one way or another. not just the people that are fancy and famous in washington. that's one of the greatests in washington is how you treat people nobody knows. >> yeah. that's the truth. camera. >> i love what you said, you could read by the light of her smile. ahead here on cbs this morning, delta airlines reaches a major milestone today in a step to cut the number of lost bags. we'll get an insidecool... but in just a couple of mornings it will be downright chilly. ............. we've been so spoiled with our extra mild november weather... but reality will show up in just

facebook audience network which places ads on other websites and mobile apps. one week after donald trump's surprising of america is still at odds over the direction of this country. cbs news contributor and republican strategic frank luntz invited 18 trump voters from new york, new jersey and connecticut to take part in a focus group. one of the women joined the discussion halfway through. the 11 men and seven women ranged in age from 22 to 64 years old. five of them voted for barack obama in previous elections.
they are, quote, mad as hell about the state of the country. they talked about the election result it's as and the anger on sides. >> across america, you had tens of thousands of people opposing this election. they claim trump's a racist. they claim trump's a sexist, and yet you all voted for him, what's going jon. >> they don't research the candidate and when they get the real information they're in denial. >> on the left they're supposed to be the party of the only tolerance is for people who think about them. >> they're behaving like children, most of us know when a child has a tantrum, you don't give into it. >> behaving like children? >> yes, because they don't get what they want, they throw a tantrum. >> i hear about the anger voters. what are you so angry about? >> barack obama claimed hope and change, for eight years we basically got nothing. >> the system. the system is rigged. it's all against us.

and her children because she knew -- in fact, you're watching it right now. she showed up in the middle. >> i was so impressed. i've never worked so hard to get an individual to participate. because i wanted viewers get a chance to hear what she had to say. >> frank, you did a tile defendant, in this focus group where participants watched clips from donald trump's interview. about special interest groups, the higher the red line go, the more they liked mr. trump's answers. the people, they're all people that work -- that's the problem with the system. the system. right now, we're going to clean it up. we're having restrictions on foreign money coming in. we're going to put on term limit which is a lot of people aren't happy about. we're putting on term limits. we're doing a lot of things to clean up the system. >> what have we learned about this answer, frank? >> they're prepared to allow him

as soon as i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot, i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising.

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is tuesday, november 15th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including donald trump supporter senator bob corker. he'll react to the president elect's first decision and we'll cabinet. but first, here is today's eye opener at 8:00. president elect trump is about to make announcements for nominees, names on that list, long on loyalty, not so long on experience. >> here is the question i want asked. george w. bush said not to talk about his successor. is barack obama going to follow that. >> confronting a europe rattled by donald trump's election. >> i think it is fair to say i was surprised by the election results. i still don't feel responsible
>> all this comes from mountain fire which burned more than 5,000 acres and is only 10% contained. >> office is next to mine. she was a mentor to me. >> she's a great journalist, but a really good person. >> according to the new york times, donald trump wants to continue holding large rallies after he takes office. >> because he enjoys the instant gratification he gets from the cheering crowds, which is, you know, probably could have skipped being president and just that's what you -- >> we have a new book called "our revolution." now that the results of the election are in, any thoughts about changing the title of the book? >> now more than ever our revolution. thoughts about chang the title of the book? >> now more than ever, our i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell. charlie rose is off. we're in good hands. anthony mason is here. president elect donald trump plans to talk about to be
the head of his transition team, vice president elect mike pence. mr. trump's team recommends his campaign finance chairman be steve mnuchin to be chairman secretary. a former goldman sachs partner, movie producer and democratic fund-raiser. >> a campaign source tells cbs news new york city mayor rudy giuliani is trump's top choice for secretary of state. the former prosecutor has limited foreign policy experience. former u.n. ambassador john bolton, an adviser to several republican administrations, is another option for secre o he is a hard right hawk on defense policy. bolton wrote last year that the only way to stop iran's nuclear program is to bomb the country. democrats and activists are speaking out against stephen bannon, mr. trump's recently appointed chief strategist. he led the conservative website breitbart for almost five years before joining the trump campaign as ceo. critics claim bannon helped to rally fringe conservatives in the alt-right movement, the
rights defines alt-right as people who believe white identity is under attack by multicultural forces. chip reed is in washington now. >> steve bannon generally avoids the cameras, but behind the scenes he's one of the most powerful people in president elect trump's inner circle. he's also one of the most controversial. >> his appointment of stephen bannon as chief white house strategist is proof of the direction mr. trump intends to take this country. >> the appointment of stephen bannon reverberated monday. >> i'm personally offended you think i would manage a campaign where that would be one of the going philosophies. it was not. >> a navy veteran, he earned his wealth as a goldman sarchs banker. in 2012, bannon took over conservative website breitbart after the death of founder andrew breitbart.
site into the platform for the alt-right. >> bannon has been really the leader of this splinter group of republicans. >> joshua green profiled bannon for bloomberg business week. >> that's the role enjoyed, poking at the establishment with a stick and being deliberately provocative and even offensive as i think he could be. >> reportedly drawing more than 20 million viewers a month, breitbart is known for inflammatory headlines including one calling conservative commentator k renegade jew, and another saying that birth control makes women unattractive and crazy. bannon's personal life has also been mired in controversy. in 1996, he was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and battery, when his now ex-wife alleged he grabbed her by the throat and arm. the case was dropped when she did not show up in court. in 2007 during divorce proceedings, she accused bannon of blocking the children from attending a school because he didn't want the schools going to
bannon has denied that as chief executive of the trump campaign, bannon was responsible for several attention grabbing moments. including this predebate press conference with multiple bill clinton accusers. >> i think bannon understands deal-making, power, but his main role is going to be the guy who keeps trump honest, who keeps the flame burning, and who keeps trump positioned as someone distinctly outside the political system. >> in response to a c inquiry about bannon's connection to the alt-right movement, trump spokesman jason miller said nothing could be further from the truth. he's worked with people of all backgrounds and has embraced diversity throughout his career. now, it is true that bannon has defended the alt-right movement in the past, he's admitted while some white nationalists may be attracted to certain philosophies of the alt-right, he believes there are elements of the hard left that attract certain extremists as well. norah? >> chip, thank you so much. republican senator bob corker of
senate foreign relations committee. he supported mr. trump during the campaign and served on his national security advisory council starting in october. senator corker is on capitol hill for his first tv interview since the presidential election. senator, good morning. >> good morning, good to be with you. >> you're the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, which means you will be in charge of any selection in terms of approval of secretary of state for president elect trump. do you see any trouble with rudy giuliani in >> look, i think we let this process complete. we know who the person is, it is going to be my job to lead the confirmation process, but handicap people at this moment would just be inappropriate, let's let it play out and let president elect trump -- >> what would you like to see in a secretary of state? >> well, obviously it is the person who is best able to advance our national interest
someone that has to deal with diplomats but at the same time i think we see that there is going to be pretty much a sort of sea change issue if you will under this president as it relates to how we address many issues. so someone is going to have to have the ability and be in an environment where they're productive and able to do that. look, this is the beginning. i know that people are just getting started. and let's let this play out and i do look forward to helping in any way i can in confirmation. >> senator, your name did come up as a possible secretary of state candidate. have you talked to the president elect or would you be interested in the job? >> i did talk with him to congratulate him as i did vice president pence. but we have had no discussions about this. i'm reading the same things that you all are reading, and watching the same things that, you know, you're reporting. and, again, that's up to them. i know they had a number of people that were central to the
looking at these things, and let's let that process play out. >> you praised donald trump's decision to make reince priebus his chief of staff. what are your thoughts about steve bannon. we haven't heard your feelings about that? >> i don't know him. i've never met him. reince happened to be someone that i had a number of interactions with. and had dinner with and spent a lot of time with and i think he'll be a great chif met. i was listening to your reporting just a minute ago. and learned some things that i have never known. so we'll see. >> you didn't know that steve bannon was the head of breitbart and that breitbart has had headlines like that? >> i did know that he was head of breitbart, but, again, i just never met him, never had any interaction with him at all, and learning as we go.
that president elect trump is considering designating his adult children national security advisers so that they could receive top security clearances. we also know that they will be running mr. trump's large business empire. do you see a conflict of interest? >> well, first of all, it is my understanding that -- and i don't know, and i think you're reporting what you heard, my understanding is that they didn't actually make that request. they asked if or that's what one of his aides had mentioned. but my guess is that's not going to happen. i don't think that's the norm and so that conflict likely would not exist. >> president elect trump has spoken with russian president vladimir putin as head of the senate foreign relations committee. what do you think about the relations between the u.s. and russia under this new administration? how do you see that going? >> well, we'll see. look, i -- there are some things that we have in common with
on, terrorism is one of those. on the other hand, putin has shown himself to be a brutal dictator-like leader and let's face it, has worked against our national interests. i think it is always positive when leaders of two countries begin on a positive note. hopefully there is something to build upon there, but obviously mr. putin himself would have to change the way he deals with the world for that to be a constructive relationship, maybe with president elect trump b >> all right, senator corker, thank you very much for taking the time to join us this morning. >> thank you. are your finances ready for a retirement? that's a question a lot of people are asking. ahead, jill schlesinger will give us tips on boosting your retirement savings and show some tools to help you. she's sitting there with bill o'reilly. are your retirement savings in order, sir? hello, bill o'reilly. >> he's pretending he can't

why do people put milk on cereal? why does your tummy go "grumbily, grumbily, grumbily"? no more questions for you! ooph, that milk in your cereal was messing with you, wasn't it? try lactaid, it's real milk, without that annoying lactose. good, right? mmm, yeah. lactaid. the milk that doesn't mess with you.

? this could be my crowning this could be my crowning achievement. i could retire. i mean, i wouldn't. i'm going to work until i'm 100 and cut back to four days a week. oh, that one day off. maybe i'll go to law school or something. >> that's amy poehler's character, of course, in "parks and recreation" my son's favorite show. 69% of workers in a recent survey said they and their spouse have saved for retirement. but of those workers, 26% admit it's $1,000 or less. jill schlesinger shares important tips. good morning. 60% have no defined savings contribution plan such as a 401(k). how do we reboot if we're in this situation? >> well, i think the first thing is you got to step on the scale and see where you stand.
ballpark estimate. so choosetosave.org. it helps to you find out specifically where you stand. not where some objective weird thing is telling you where you should be. this is for you. you can also go ton the secured website which is fantastic that will tell you what to expect about your own future benefits. once you have that, then you start slowly. look, this is not easy. i get it, okay? we want you to at least contribute up to whatever you have as a company match. or if your own i.r.a., or roth i.r.a. plan just a little bit every single month. a lot of people see clarity around their 30s. they can put more money away. hopefully, 10%, 15% of their income. things get better in your 40s. you're trying to get as much as you can possibly swallow in your retirement plan.
few people get there, but, boy if you can try, it's fantastic. >> is social security still a reliable income for a retiree, do you think? >> social security is a pay as you go system. which means we've got a lot of people who are working and they pay benefits in for those who are no longer working. when you have more people retired than working you start to blow through all of that money built up. >> what do we have now? but it's going to be depleted. in the next 20 years or so, about the time i'm supposed to claim social security, the trust fund is depleted. here's what happens, only 75% of promised benefits will be able to be paid out. there are fixings to the program. no one likes the fix. you can raise the wage base. you can make people work harder. but that's hard if you got a
do your job or some combination. there are solutions. there will be some coddling together because people really like social security. >> so, i think that was a no? >> yeah. >> norah, that's exactly what i was thinking. better get a second job. all right. thank you, jill. >> thank you very much. one honoree stood out at a woman of the year award ceremony. ahead what rock star bono said about being included on a list of accomplished women. that's his family. we'll be right back. >> announcer: this morning's "eye on money" sponsored by voya financial, changing the way you think about retirement. y voya, financial, changing the way you think about retirement. . val from voya? yeah, val from voya. quick question, what are voya retirement squirrels doing in my house? we're putting away acorns.

? u2's bono made history to be ho women of the year. >> i know how ridiculous it is for me to be on this stage accepting this award, but if i didn't know how ridiculous it was, i did have the blessed internet to remind me. out of all of the women alive #bono is my favorite. it's just so inspiring how she overcame the adversity of being a millionaire white dude.
criticized for giving the award to a man. the magazine defended the choice by saying the fight for gender equality can only be won by the help of men like bono. he raises money for improvished women all around the world. others gwen stefani. look at that dress. a message. >> i like it, too. 2016. that's nice.ivation behind this unlikely pairing in the debut of our new series called "a more perfect union." we're highlighting students from different backgrounds that are
