we'll very much try and keep that. >> reporter: what trump's health care plans will look like one of the many questions facing his transition team. that team is now being led by vice president-elect mike pence. he's replaced embattled new jersey governor chris christie who's taking on alesser role and what about trump's cabinet? >> a number of people being talked about for different jobs. >> reporter: playing a big role in that decision, trump's children. donald all named to the transition team. they'll help build their father's administration as they also help to build the family business. the potential conflict of interest is drawing criticism after the trump's promise of a strict separation. >> we're not going to be involved in government? >> there will be a wall between you and your siblings and your father? >> we won't talk about it. >> reporter: cabinet contenders include newt gingrich and rudy
secretary of state. >> so many positions to fill. now, mary, donald trump has over 4,000 positions to fill. presumably the most urgent right now is chief of staff. what do we know about the direction he's leaning? >> trump's son-in-law jared kushner is being eyed for the job. in fact, he visited here with trump. he even got a tour here from the man who currently holds the job. paula. >> all of this to be determined. mary, thank you. tensio nation is still deeply divided over trump's election. for the third straight night, anti-trump protesters have taken to the streets and abc's gloria riviera is in washington for us this morning. >> reporter: that's right, overnight, heated anti-trump protests in more than a dozen cities across the country. initially in a tweet, donald

for today in new york and los angeles and reports of plans for a significant protest here in washington, d.c., on january 20th, when president-elect donald trump takes the oath of office. dan, paula. >> tense time in america. gloria, thank you. let's get more with cokie roberts who's also in washington this morning. cokie, good morning. i want to start with this obamacare news, i guess the question is, if trump is willing to shift his resistance on obamacare what does this say about his intention to follow through on his other big campaign promises like building wall? >> i think he's fairly frank about the fact that some of that was for campaign purposes and he says he's concentrating on taxes and jobs. and of course, that makes a lot
what he says about obamacare he'll keep the parts that are really popular, being able to get insurance even if you have a pre-existing condition. keeping young people on parents' coverage until they're 26. those are very popular measures. now, how he's going to pay for that without having the rest of the structure of the bill is an interesting question. same thing about the wall, we already have a good bit of wall along our southern border, does he really need spend m and is mexico going to do it? of course not. i think he's going to pick and choose and do the things that he thinks the voters really care about in their day-to-day lives as opposed to these big campaign statements. >> cokie, we talked about these positions, 4,000 positions that trump needs to fill. 1100 need senate approval. now, the washington post reporting this morning he's eyeing new hampshire senator -- former senator kelly ayotte
is this a sign he's willing to surround himself with people that he doesn't always agree with? >> we'll see. kelly ayotte's a real loss to the senate, she's able to go across party lines and get things done, and the fact that he is thinking about her does show you there might be an outreach beyond his inner circle. that circle was awfully small. as you saw my' children have been such a part of that. he has to get beyond that immediate group. so, whether that includes people who have disagreed with him, look, he sat down with the president the other day, the two of them could not have been harsher about each other, and came out saying glowing things and so maybe we're seeing a more
trump. >> not much time has elapsed. we'll see how things progressed. we're really at this contentious point in american history. i'm just curious, given your experience covering politics, what would you say to the americans who are pinning some hope on this president and those fearing anger and fear and dread on this new president. >> first, you wonder how these protesters voted. do something to speak to the people who are angry and frightened, particularly to the immigrant community, the muslim community and these horrific stories we're hearing about kids being harassed in schools. heeeds to actually stand up publicly and say something, make some kind of gesture that he disapproves of this and he's reaching out to the people who are frightened in the country. in terms of the people who are
excited for a while. just the notion they did it. they won. they beat the odds. they told all the smart washington types that we were all wrong and so i think that they'll stay with a sense of excitement. and if he can do something quick, like an infrastructure bill, where people really go to work right away building highways and airports and such, that will -- that will make people happy. inauguration. cokie, thank you for the insight. across the southeast, battles are going on right now to get a handle on a dozen of wildfires that are burning. blanketing cities in thick smoke. arson is suspected in several of them with a reward being offered to find those responsible and rob is here with the latest and how long people will be waiting for relief. hi, rob. >> reporter: hi, paula. a drought emergency in many

wildfires is driving some families from their homes. some residents refusing to leave. much of the southeast seeing one of the driest years on record. >> the smoke almost blocks out the sun that it's so bad. >> reporter: the smoke so intense blanketing the city of atlanta. air quality concerns are high for residents especially those with asthma and other health concerns. sadly, the smokey mountains have become just that the past couple of weeks and some of that dense smoke getting into some highly populated areas. there are two large fires if they combine it would be the largest wildfire there in history. we have very dry conditions for the next 6 to 14 days there. dan. >> rob, thank you. we'll be coming back to you soon for the national forecast. now to the dual investigations that have been launched into this newly released video. routine stop escalating into a dangerous confrontation. here's abc's marci gonzalez. >> reporter: this morning,
