eventually into the midwest, putting some snow down as well. not the big numbers, but you'll find the mountain ranges out west, snow nonetheless. there's one storm going down the california coastline. the second storm, as it pushes through the northern plains, dropping snow, eventually fizzles out by the time you get to late wednesday, going into thursday. as far as the snow totals go, i'm talking maybe three, four-day totals. out west, the mountain peaks, three, five feet of snow. as you get into the northern plains, wherever you see the purple colors popping up, that could be a foot, maybe a foot and a half in isolated spots. there will be snow with this system. nor norah? >> president trump has a busy week after a rough weekend. on saturday he spoke to cia employees, but the president was also thinking about saturday's protest that brought hundreds of thousands of demonstrators in washington. major garrett, it's just one
item on a long agenda. >> reporter: good morning. president trump just wrapped up a meeting with top business executives here at the white house. earlier on twitter he promised a big focus of the meeting would be increasing manufacturing jobs here in the united states. we expect several executive orders from the president today. among them dealing with trade and immigration as well as environmental policy. yesterday, the president focused on some staff work. >> i just went to the oval office and found this beautiful letter from president obama. >> reporter: at a swearing in for his senior advisors sunday, the 45th president held up a letter left for him by his president. >> it was really very nice of him to do that. >> reporter: he said the contents would remain confidential and offered this about the presidency and his team. >> this is not about party. this is not about ideology. it's about serving the american
people. >> reporter: earlier in the day president trump was less conciliatory when he noted the hundreds of thousands that marched in washington and across the country to protest his presidency and agenda, was under the impression that we just had an election, why didn't these people vote, he tweeted before changing his tune an hour and a half later. even if i don't always agree, i recognize the rights of people to express their views. on saturday crowd size was also on mr. trump's mind during his first official trip to cia headquarters. >> we had a massive field of people, you saw that, packed. i get up this morning and turn on one of the networks and they show an empty field. >> reporter: in front of about 300 cia agents, the president lashed out about reports of attendance at his inauguration. >> honestly it looked like a million and a half people. whatever it was, it was. >> reporter: the visit was designed to reset relations with an intelligence community he
criticized. >> i love you, i respect you. there's nobody i respect more. you're going to do a fantastic job, and we're going to start winning again and you're going to be leading the charge. >> reporter: it's a sentiment the president repeated at a reception for law enforcement and security leaders including fbi director james comey. some democrats blame comey's announcements about the e-mail investigation for costing hillary clinton the election. an inspector general probe is reviewing comey's conduct. the president's pick for cia director, mike pompeo, is expected to be confirmed today. yesterday republican senators lindsey graham and john mccain announced support for rex tillerson, more or lessen shurg his confirmation. president trump is moving ahead with his foreign agenda, on the phone yesterday with benjamin netanyahu. the spokesman says mr. trump
emphasized the only direct talks can produce an israeli-palestinian peace deal. he plans to meet with the leaders of britain, mexico and canada in the upcoming days. the argument over how many people attended president trump's swearing in has been summed up in two photos. this is an aerial shot during friday's inauguration. this is the national mall at the same time of day during president obama's nation in 2009. on saturday white house press secretary accused reporters of trying to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration. >> there's been a lot of talk in the media about the responsibility to hold donald trump accountable. i'm here to tell you it goes two ways. we're going to hold the press accountable as well. this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe. >> the fact checking website politifact, said the claim is pants on fire, which means
false. kellyanne conway defended sean spicer yesterday. >> why did he do that? it undermines the credibility of the entire white house press office on day one. >> don't be so overly dramatic about it, chuck. you're saying it's a falsehood. they're giving -- sean spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts. >> conway also said presidents are judged by their accomplishments not by the crowd size at their inaugurations. ari fleischer served as white house press secretary for george w. bush from 2001 to 2003 sand with us now. welcome. you watched that first briefs by sean spicer. i know he's a friend of yours. what concerns you? >> it's one thing to take on the press, a time honored tradition. >> by republicans and democrats. >> absolutely. the part about how many people showed up in the audience of the inauguration, who cares? it's not worth fighting over. >> and where it took place, too. >> and where it took place -- >> in terms of the question that
the president did at the cia when he raised the question of crowd size in front of the heroes. >> one thing we have learned about president trump, he will let it rip wherever he is. i think the fundamental issue is wrong fight. if you want to get into a fight with the press about them trying to delegitimize his presidency, that's fair game. but a fight over who had more people at the inauguration, that's not worth your saturday -- >> he came out swinging, ari, he was so strident in it. that had to come from somewhere. >> it came from the president. my sense of sean, who i've known for almost 20 years, he used to work in the bush administration. this is one of those times when you're told, get out there and fix it and do it now. it doesn't give you time to prepare it and get the facts developed the way you want to. he went out there and did his job, which is to represent the president. today is part two. today is the press's day.
today he's going to get challenged on it. he's going to have to justify it and back up the statistics he used. my advice to sean, if you used a statistic that is wrong, correct it today. there's no harm to say i got a statistic wrong and walk it back. if you're making a broader point about legitimate press, make your broader point. cool the confrontation down a notch or three. >> do you think the press is in any way to blame? >> here is where the press is to blame. first of all, they've been hostile to donald trump throughout, and donald trump is happy to return the favor. why didn't zeek miller, a good reporter from "time" ask a white house official to confirm it was removed before tweeting it. >> he took it back. >> it's a good point. it's a good reminder to do that. let me ask you, the press secretary, it's different from a campaign secretary, right?
you've been white house press secretary. what is the onus, the job? as of your first day in the white house, you're paid by the taxpayers. do you also represent the american people to some regard? >> you have three phases. when you're on a campaign, first talking to your primary voters, then the american voters and the world. >> but when you're in the white house? >> you're talking to the world. that's a soaper responsibility. at the same time you're speaking as president. your job is to faithfully reflect the president for better or worse. >> here is what you wrote in november. i don't know what changes president-elect trump will make, but has extraordinary latitude. if he decides to go around the press entirely, abolish the daily briefing or not take a press pool to dinner, the reason he'll get away with it is because the mainstream media lost the trust of the american people. do you believe the mainstream media is in danger of losing the trust of the american people? >> charlie, according to the gallup poll trust in the press
is at an all-time low. this is a tragedy for the press and the public. it's vital the american people accept what the press is reporting as fact. because of the manner the press has reported the news for decades has led to a strong, steady decline of people distrusting the press. my advice to the press is, it doesn't matter if the president praises you or criticizes you. your job is to be neutral, fair and accurate. >> thank you. >> all right, ari, very well said. thank you. the super bowl 51 match-up is set this morning. the new england patriots will take on the the atlanta falcons. the pats won the championship yesterday beating the pittsburgh steelers 36-17. tom brady will compete for a record breaking fifth super bowl ring, the most of any quarterback in nfl history. mvp candidate matt ryan and his falcons crushed the green bay packers yesterday. the score was 44-21. they're looking to win their
first championship in their second super bowl appearance. the patriots and falcons will meet for super bowl 51 in houston on sunday, february 5th. >> we'll be watching. samsung says it solved the mystery of what caused the flagship note 7 smart phone to catch on fire. ahead, what a month-long investigation discovered and whether samsung now can good monday morning from the kpix studios you need in tha umbrella again today for one more day. and it's the hi-def radar picking up showers around the bay area. pop up hit and miss showers. the potential for thunderstorms we do have a flash flood watch in effect for the entire bay area until the early evening hours. temperatures today cool into the 50s and sunny skies by tuesday afternoon. all the way to the weekend.

investigation into what caused the galaxy note 7 smartphones to catch fire. >> there were two different defects. they had the same end result. >> reporter: samsung said since it began in recall in september 700 researchers used 200,000 devices and 30,000 batteries. they concluded the original issue was a design flaw. the company said incorrect battery positioning created problems in the phone's upper right corner. >> it caused the two parts of the battery to basically come into contact and short out which caused overheating and some of the fires you saw. >> reporter: the replacement phones had a problem with how the batteries were welded together which led to an internal short circuit. >> they went to great pains to point out that in all their testing they didn't find any flaws with the actual design and build of the phone hardware or the software in it. they put all the blame on the batteries and the manufacturing

there were so many different causes represented. the uniting factor was a vitriolic operation against president trump. my colleagues wrote about this today and quoted a democrat saying trump is the cure. not meaning trump is the cure to the nation's ills but trump is the cure to democratic enemy. >> i kept hearing organizers say this is not an anti-trump rally. this is about women speaking out. it didn't seem the case when i watched. >> they focused on this coalesce sense of a number of causes whether immigrants rights, reproductive rights or free speech. in the end, the tone and i think jodi saw it, too, was anti-trump. the interesting thing is a lot of the women were grandmothers, mothers and daughters. this was an intergenerational happening. these women will continue conversations at home and intended to continue conversations nationally as
activists. >> 53% of white women voted for trump. where were these women -- many i'm sure voted. where was the movement to propel hillary clinton into the white house that many thought would propel her into the white house? >> president trump tweeted the same idea. >> i read that. >> he said did these women vote. many of them probably did. i think it goes to the diversity and the huge divide in the country. >> leading candidates for the democratic national committee. were any of them there? >> no. my colleague reported they were at a weekend retreat for donors. >> what does that say about the future of the political party trying to harness the power on display? >> i think it is complicated. this is a day after the president was inaugurated. democrats have been focused on a peaceful transition of power. elected officials may have voiced their support privately but didn't feel it was appropriate to stand at the foot of the white house on president trump's first day protesting his
future administration. >> it also did show an energy, organization and as alex said, an intergenerational approach that the democratic party didn't have. >> so it was a legitimate movement now? just a one off? what happens now? >> there were the stirrings of it. part of what was impressive. the hats women stayed home and knitted. signs they made themselves. what a lot of people said about the signs is the hand made signs feel so much more authentic than the mass produced hillary signs people waved at the convention. >> is it comparable to anything in history we have seen? >> i think what's special about this, what's distinctive about this was the day after a president's inauguration, to see so many people around the country and the world rise up and say we are fundamentally not okay with this man being president. >> we think it puts at risk things we believe in. >> a preemptive strike not just
nationally but internationally. the size of the crowds around the globe. you look at the "new york times" map. there are dots on the earth. these are people uniting for a man who had one day in office. >> yesterday women were asked what theyn't with aed going forward. they talked a little bit about the causes. they really said i want a different president. >> i hear that. could it begin there and become something larger in terms of the empowerment of women and crucial issues for women and their place and their opportunity to participate in the world that we live in? >> i think we'll see a choice by president trump for the supreme court. what that judge, justice or person's view on abortion may add to that. what happens with the repeal of the affordable care act whether that repeals the preventative measures that allow women covered birth control. >> would some of the women who
marched be willing to work with republicans? for example, many are you able are in favor of paid family leave and the trump administration may have a proposal on that. would the marchers back that or do they want to a pose everything from this -- oppose everything from this president. >> there is definitely interest in sign-ups. >> it's called the women's march on washington. >> were there people signing them up? was there a master list being created? >> social media was huge. sign-ups online. >> i hope there is a way to work together on this. thank you. melania trump is taking a different approach to her role as first lady. what sets her apart as she,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ together ] >> that your word is your bond and you do what you say. >> reporter: after a speech included several passages mirrorimirro mirroring michelle obama's address in 2003. she later pledged to fight bullying as first lady. >> we have to find a better way to talk with each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other. >> reporter: days before the election melania made it clear her first priority is still her son. 10-year-old baron. >> i'm a full time mother to our son, an incredible boy. >> reporter: she's chosen to live with him in new york until at least the end of the school year. anita mcbride, former chief of staff for laura bush said she
grappled with the same thing. >> one of the important things they have to do is create a family life, a sanctuary around the president that keeps family life as stable as possible. this is an enormous amount of pressure on a family, particularly when there are young children. >> reporter: another critical role for the first lady, first adviser. melania told "60 minutes" correspondent leslie staal she shares her opinions with president trump, even when it comes to his tweets. >> sometimes it got him in trouble. but it helped a lot as well. he had unbelievable following. >> you never say, come on -- >> i did. >> she does. >> of course i did many times. from the beginning of the campaign. >> does he listen to you? >> sometimes he listens. >> for her role at the white house, melania trump said she's going to stay true to herself. >> i'm very strong and tough and confident and i will listen to
myself and do what is right and what feels to my heart. >> among all the other celebrations this weekend the first couple celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary. the role of the first lady has changed dramatically. only time will tell how melania will leave her mark on the white house. norah? >> thank you. >> the people that know her say she's not a wall flower and she speaks her mind. because we don't know much right now they are focused on her fashion. she was a-plus-plus for that. >> we wouldn't want a wall flower. >> it's great she speaks her mind. she walks in high heels on the parade route. >> pretty good. beautiful. >> awesome. >> you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
