gayle king and anthony mason. charlie rose is off. president trump is ready to take the battle over his executive order on immigration to the supreme court. three federal judges ruled against the president. his temporary travel ban remains on hold while the lower courts decide if it's constitutional. after the decision, the president tweeted "see you in court, the security of our nation is at stake." >> he also told reporters he thought it was a political decision. the justice department argued that the president has broad discretion on national security but the judges wrote this. "neither the supreme court nor our court has ever held that courts lack the authority to review executive action in those arenas for compliance with the constitution." president trump will meet today with japanese prime minister shinzo abe at the white house. the pair will then head to the president's mar-a-lago club in florida. they are expected to discuss issues such as trade after the
8:03 am
collapse of the trans-pacific partnership. >> caroline kennedy became the first woman to serve as embassy to japan. historic visit to her hiroshima prime minister abe's visit to pearl harbor. welcome home. >> great to be home. >> big meeting, clearly, as japan is seen as america's closest ally in asia. the prime minister said he thinks trump is someone he can trust. what's at stake in this meeting? >> i think it's hugely important for both leaders. for japan, obviously, it depends on the u.s., both for its security as well as number one economic partner. and i think our country is something that gets lost is really our partners around the world and all the global issues we face. for president trump, it's important to reaffirm that relationship as well as to send a signal that the u.s. is going
8:04 am
to remain engaged in asia. >> go ahead, norah. >> i want to say just before this meeting at the white house and then going to play golf, president trump has a late-night call with president xi of china. what message does that send? >> i think it shows that the chinese are watching and listening. and i think it shows the importance of the u.s./japan alliance. the chinese have a big stake in all of this. and certainly japan is increasingly concerned about chinese behavior in the region. they are encroaching provocative behavior, taking over islands, interfering with japanese ships and planes. and so i think this whole thing -- it's a dangerous area. and i think it's with north korea shooting off nuclear -- testing nuclear bombs and missiles, it's -- you know, there is a lot going on there that the u.s. needs to focus on that could really affect our own security. >> the japanese prime minister seems determined to have a
8:05 am
strong relationship with president trump. at the same time he's stake aid lot of political capital on the tpp, which president trump knocked down almost immediately. the japanese prime minister seems to think there's a chance he can rescue something here. do you think that's true? >> i don't know but it's certainly in the u.s. interest and in the japanese interest. it will help to stimulate the japanese economy. but i think it's in the u.s. interest because it creates a network where the sus a leader in asia where all the growth in the 21st century will happen and it cements our relationships with 12 countries, 11 other countries plus us. if we're not meeting and setting the rules and practices, china will easily move in on that and all the countries are watching to see what the united states is going to do in asia. >> president trump always says america's first. while it's always very pleasing to hear in this country, do you ever worry that there's a downside to that message for our
8:06 am
allies to hear? >> well, i think the u.s. has achieved a leadership position in the world because we have worked with others. we've set up this international order that has benefited the entire world. certainly in asia, it's allowed for tremendous economic growth and benefited us as well. when america first means putting our own national interests first, that's all great. every country does that. but when it means excluding others or insulting our allies, not appreciating or working with them as partners to advance our common goals, i think that's not in our interest. >> but you've called that america first message alarming. do you think that's how our allies are seeing it, as not working with them? >> i think they have -- yeah. i think they have serious questions. i think the phone call with australia and -- was alarming, two countries in the region has
8:07 am
been by our sidal all along, same as japan. they're all trying to figure out what this means going forward. >> let's talk about you, caroline kennedy, for a second. back to norah's question. welcome back home. remember, norah, when did you the 60 minutes piece and we saw you in japan with very little diplomatic experience but you're getting two thumbs up as you are leaving, as you left. what did you get out of that experience? your favorite son is here and he spent a year with you in japan. what's wha makes you proudest when you look back at that? >> this sounds like a cliche. but i really learned the most about america. i learned a lot about japan and it's fascinate bug really how people in asia and japan see our country and that made me so proud of the united states, of our leadership, our values, our commitment to the rule of law, our commitment to democracy and i think that's what the whole world sees in us. i think our economy is the leader. and i think that you just can't,
8:08 am
you know, overstate how much people in asia want us to be there and want our leadership. >> how big a threat is china? militarily. >> well, they are just having double-digit increases in their military spending, which is already huge. so, i think that japan has a capable, but small defensive self-defense force. and so i think korea -- this is a very militarized region. and it's very important for the u.s. to stay engaged there, because that actually -- everyone looks to us to keep security. and that's another reason why steady leadership is so important. >> there's been a lot of speculation about what you will do next. you said i just got back. i've got to think about it. but i'm wonder iing, have you er had any second thoughts about not taking the new york senate seat in 2008 when hillary
8:09 am
clinton left? >> this -- the experience of being in japan was really something that i obviously couldn't have predicted. and it turned out really to be really a great privilege. so i'm so glad everything worked out the way it did. >> okay, but can you answer that question? >> no. the answer would be no. >> last time you were here, you said see you in tokyo. so i'm thinking when are you going to announce for mayor, president, governor, senator? nothing? >> we'll have to see what i write on the board. >> oh, yeah! >> see you in tokyo again. i don't know. >> we'll see. caroline kennedy, thank you. cbs news will bring you a special report on president trump's news conference with the japanese prime minister at 10:00 pacific time here on cbs. the murder of a doctor may be linked to something that happened more than 50 years ago. >> i'm peter van zandt. a doctor is killed in the house
