>> reporter: karen owens lost her husband william ryan owens in a late january raid against an al qaeda hideout in a remote area against central yemen. the nighttime operation had been planned for months, but it did not receive presidential approval until mr. trump gave the go-ahead about a week into his term. >> i just spoke to our great general mattis who reconfirmed that, and i quote, ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence. >> reporter: some have questioned whether that intelligence was worth the cost. arizona senator john mccain. >> lost a $75 million airplane, an individual killed and others wounded. that's not a six in my view. >> reporter: early yesterday mr. trump said he signed off on the raid on the advice of his top brass. >> my generals are the most we've w respected in many decades, i
7:10 am
believe, and they lost ryan. >> reporter: that comment angered some democrats who said the president was passing the buck and owens' father refused to shake the president's hand last month. he's calling for an investigation, norah, into what he calls a stupid mission. >> nancy, thank you. john dickerson will join me in a moment here at the white house. for now, let's send it back to studio 57. >> norah, thanks. >> senate minority leader chuck schumer is leading the democratic effort to save obamacare. he's on capitol hill and joins us this morning. senator, thank you for joining us. >> good morning. >> we'll get your thoughts on what the president had to said about health care in a second. i would like to start with this. donald trump is getting rave reviews for that speech on tone, delivery and content. did hear anything you liked? >> with donald trump, the speeches don't mean much. what he says in his campaign, at the inauguration, last night, aren't attached to reality, his own reality. his speeches are populist.
7:11 am
they're aimed at the, woulding folks who supporting him. his governing is hard right, favoring special interests over the working class. he talked last night act infrastructure. we democrats offered a plan a month ago. we haven't heard a peep out of him. he said he was going to be tough on trade. his great opportunity on trade was to label china a currency manipulator. he said in the campaign ten times i'm going to do it on day one. he's backed off. he talked about education, touchingly about the need for medical research. his budget is slashing those to smithereens. most of the all, he said he'd clean up the swamp. his cabinet is a swamp cabinet. >> he did say now is time for democrats and republicans to unite. does that put pressure on your party? >> actions speak louder than words. he hasn't done anything to
7:12 am
unite. he isn't calling us and saying what do you think? he's not making proposals around the middle. es's favoring special interests. an hour after he gave his inaugural speech he signed an executive order that helped the banks and raised the cost of mortgages over $500 for new homeowners. that's what's going on here. that's why he's had such trouble his first 40 days and why he'll continue to have trouble. >> senator, you managed the infrastructure proposal from the democrats. president trump called for a trillion dollar infrastructure rebuilding program last night. do you think there's any ground with which you can work with the republicans on? >> he called for public-private partnerships there. if that means tax breaks, what he's talked about, or some of his advisers anyway, is 82 cents on the dollar would go to financiers which means very little is left for building roads, and it would require tolls to pay back these lenders, that's private lenders all over the country.
7:13 am
so we can't work with that. >> for the first time he seemed to give specifications about obamacare and his health care proposals. what did you make of that? >> i made -- i thought the republican leaders in their hearts were hoping he was going to lay out a path. he hasn't. their party is divided on obamacare. i thought governor bashir gave a great defense of it. their party, you don't know what to do. are they going to give more money to the states that have increased medicaid? some of the republicans want that. the hard right says, you put any money in here, i won't do it. >> senator, there were audible groans in the room last night when the president called for the creation of a new office called v.o.i.c.e., victims of immigration crime engagement. what do you think of that new office? >> i think that office is ridiculous. we want to go after all criminals. the overwhelming majority of immigrants are law abiding, they want to be part of the american dream. most americans agree with that.
7:14 am
to put an office like this out there shows how anti immigrant this president is. of course we want to go after the criminals. we want to go after all criminals, no matter who they are. >> senator, the president started his speech by condemning recent threats against jewish community centers, slightly at odds with his position earlier in the day. did that satisfy you? >> i'm glad he said it. no problem there. but he's got to do it regularly, not just one speech once a month. >> all right, senator schumer. >> let him start really doing something. >> let's go back to norah at the white house with face the nation moderator john dickerson. norah? >> john, we all watched the spreech together last night. there's talk that was teleprompter trump, not the old twitter trump. what does it suggest as to how this white house wants to move forward? >> this isn't just a speech by the president. it's a decision by a number of
7:15 am
people to go in a slightly different direction. he can't go off in whatever direction he wants to. he was recognizing he has to change his tone a little bit, that he has to do a lot more towards unity both symbolically, there was basically unity and symbolism. that's still a big change for the presidency. it's a recognition he has to accept the constraints of the office. evolution for a man whose inaugural address was an attempt to break out of the mold. >> on the campaign and his 40 days in office here at the white house, there has been a hard line on immigration. build the wall, increase border enforcement and i.c.e. and deportation. yesterday, the first signal of a softening perhaps, granting a pathway to undocumented immigrants. why? >> this is the difference. speech reviews are nice. policy is what matters. what it appears the president is flirting with is the idea of accepting some kind of legal
7:16 am
status. that's a break from what he said during the campaign and after. if you wanted as an undocument immigrant to stay in the united states, you'd have to go back home. this idea that you'd stay home and not worry about being deported, the idea that might be a basis for a compromise, because he was so strong on illegal immigrants. this is sort of a nixon goes to china a possibility. only a possibility. if he wants to say it, he has to say it loud, not just hint about it behind the scenes. >> the president's first big military action as commander-in-chief was in yemen. as a result a navy s.e.a.l. died, ryan owens, one of the most emotional, moving moments is when he honored if widow, carryn owens. earlier trump said of the generals, "they lost ryan." he shifted last night. >> he did. the symbolism of last night was not only a moment of presidency and deeb emotion, it was taking on a chief role.
7:17 am
he was taking a half step back from that commander-in-chief role. he made the call. it's his decision, the buck stops at his desk. the question is will he finally go that far with respect to that specific raid. >> john, always good to see you. >> thanks, norah. >> thanks so much. >> i'm going to be heading over to the vice presidential's ceremonial office right across from the white house just over here some short steps. we'll bring you an interview with vice president mike pence in our next hour. for now let's send it back to gayle, anthony and alex in new york. >> looking forward to that. at least three people are dead and dozens of homes and businesses damaged after a violent storm system stormed tornadoes in the central u.s. some of the hardest hit areas are outside chicago and in southern missouri. at least 22 tornadoes were reported in five states. michelle miller is outside ottawa, illinois, with the widespread damage. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. at least one of those tornadoes tore through the town of

7:34 am
president's speech and he joins us now from capitol hill. good morning, senator. >> good morning. >> let's start if we can with the president's comments on immigration. mr. trump said he saw the possibility of immigration reform as long as american jobs and security come first. you've been part of a bipartisan effort for immigration reform in past that did not work out. do you think this could be successful at this time now? >> i do. it's not going to be easy but i believe that. by the way, that's the way our immigration law should always be about. obviously number one ensuring people entering the united states whether permanently or as visitors or people who are not going to harm us and secondly it ee essential fi our country and our economy. how we do it is critical. it's a multi-step process. it begins with enforcing our laws so we can win the tense of the american people. the second step would be to modernize our system, make it less bureaucratic and more mi
7:35 am
merit-based but make it reasonable and responsible for those who have been here a long time, not criminals, who are in violation of the immigration laws but we should try to accommodate. i believe if we follow those steps in that order we can achieve a result that's god for the country. >> the president made it clear he intends to repeal and replace obamacare. in your state of florida you have the largest number of people on obamacare in the country. do your views reflect the challenges he reflects to make? >> i absolutely believe obamacare needs to be repealed. a lot of people i'm meeting with are truly uninsured. even though they're on obamacare, their deductibles are so high, they have to spend money they don't have before they can even begin to use the plan. that doesn't mean you throw the people out in the street or go to the system before 2010. i don't want to go back to that either. i want to replace it with a system that for the vast majority of people they're going to be able to access a health system that's more affordable
7:36 am
and achieve the things they want in a viable marketplace. >> did you get that from his outline last night? >> i think the difficult work is laying out exactly how we achieve that away from the system. but certainly the principles that we don't want to disrupt people that are on it now that we certainly don't want to go back to the old system because that wasn't working either, yes, i agree with the principles and they are guiding us, and it's what we've been talking about since 2014. i'll work hard to make sure many of those elements are a pat of our law as possible. >> senator, we spoke with your colleague chuck schumer earlier this morning and he said president trump's words and actions have not been consistent, he's done absolutely nothing to foster growth among the growing parties. is that true? >> it's in the eye of the beholder. he enters politics at a time of
7:37 am
extraordinary division. if you saw last night there was a moment after he spoke a number of members got up and walked out before he finished his speech. i don't do that stuff. other people have to speak for himself. there's something the president has done. you'll have to ask them about it. i do believe for the good of the country, we need to give him a chance to be successful. if we disagree with him, we'll take on those issues. i thought last night was a very presidential speech. i thought last night was the best speech. i've been watching him closely for two year. there's dmout about that. he did a very good job last night. that was a promising sign. >> the president called for a trillion dollar program on infrastructure. at the same time he called for significant tax cuts for businesses. are their votes in congress for an infrastructure spending program? >> it depends. if it's all taxpayer money, that's going to be very difficult for the reasons we
7:38 am
outlined. however as he discussed last night, he talked about a public-private partnership and if they're talking about leveraging private funds over a 5 year or ten-year period, it's very doable. but it's going to require us to allow the federal government with its limited resources to focus on things that it's in charge of doing and that is the national security of our country, infrastate structure that's necessary for our nation and a safety net of those who have fallen on hard times to stand up again. i believe, and the pretty didn't talk about this, i believe eventually we'll have to deal with sooner than later reforms to save social security and medicare. >> senator marco rubio. thanks for your time. >> thank you. there may have been uncovered a more disturbing issue. ahead the claims of harassment

♪,,,,,,, good morning to our viewers in the west. it's wednesday, march 1st, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including president trump sending congress a strong message in a softer tone. norah has invited vice president mike pence to talk about the president's speech and what happens next. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the time the trivial fights is behind us. >> it was noticeably different from the inaugural address. last night, he referred to the renewal of the american spirit. >> seemed sobering and sounded more like a republican than the revolutionary he describes himself as. >> did you hear anything you liked in the speech?
8:01 am
>> well, you see, with donald trump, his speeches don't mean very much. >> the president is in a very striking moment reassured a visibly heartbroken widow that the nation grieves with her. >> the symbolism last night was not only a moment of patriotism and deep emotion, but it was also president taking on the commander in chief role. >> i thought last nights with a very presidential speech. i thought it was the best speech i've seen him give and i've been watching him closely for two years. >> when he took to the podium, behind the president was vice president mike pence and speaker of the house paul ryan, who immediately showed their commitment to fiscal responsibility by purchasing a buy one, get two free combo. men wearing a blue suit with a blue tie. that's ridiculous. >> stephen colbert got the memo. i'm gayle king along with
8:02 am
anthony mason and norah o'donnell. charlie rose is off and doing great. president trump used a gentler tone in his first major speech to congress. in a new cbs poll this morning 71% watching the address felt it was unifying. >> the president told congress the time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. the hour-long speech covered a wide range of policies. >> i will be asking congress to approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in infrastructure of the united states. we should ensure that americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage and that we have a stable transition for americans currently enrolled in the health care exchanges. [ applause ] we're also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical islamic terrorism.
8:03 am
[ applause ] we will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet. >> the emotional high point came when the president thanked taryn owens, widow of navy s.e.a.l. ryan owens, killed in an anti-terror mission authorized by president trump. >> ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. thank you. [ applause ] >> the applause continued for more than 90 seconds. >> let's go now to norah with vice president mike pence in washington. norah, good morning again. >> good morning, gayle. thank you very much. yes, we are here in the ceremonial office of the vice president of the united states. mr. vice president, thank you so much for having us. >> good morning, norah. >> we just showed that incredibly moving moment last night when the president honored
8:04 am
navy s.e.a.l. william ryan owens and his widow. how did that tribute come about? >> the president reached out to the family after ryan owens fell in what was, as the president said again last night, a highly successful operation that obtained significant intelligence information. but i was there in the oval office when the president spoke to her at length. the president traveled to andover air force base to be with the family. i think he felt very strongly about acknowledging her courageous husband. it's just as much acknowledging a family because, as you know, norah, those who serve in the military serve as families, are supported by families. and the tribute last night was the likes of which i have never seen. i was in the congress for 12 years. i really don't remember a
8:05 am
sustained and proper tribute and applause. >> both republicans and democrats. >> it was. >> for more than two minutes. she kept looking up, almost to heaven. i know your wife was sitting right next to her. >> she did. and i have to tell you, i don't think there was a dry eye in the house, to see her looking up, expressing words of love for her husband. and afterwards, the president and i spent a little bit more time with her and reminded her that the congress represents the entire country and that the tribute that her husband and her family received was really how all the american people feel about him and feel about all those who serve. >> i know the president made a point last night of pointing out -- he said that that raid had gathered, quote, large amounts of vital intelligence. have you seen some of that intelligence? what does that help us with? >> we were briefed again yesterday by secretary mattis, giving us a summary of the
8:06 am
intelligence that was gathered. this was a strike that was directed at obtaining information about the al qaeda operating out of yemen. we do believe it will lay the foundation for victories in the future. it was only fitting that the president pay tribute to that courageous navy s.e.a.l., to his wonderful family in the context of a speech where he put the security of the american people first. he made a commitment to rebuilding the military after years of cutbacks and the support for that. i truly believe we'll be part of the bipartisan accomplishments that this congress can achieve. >> nbc has reported that there was no significant intelligence gathered from that raid. is that wrong? >> that is wrong. i can tell you that secretary mattis, as recently as yesterday, confirmed again to the administration that there was significant intelligence that was gathered that will lead
8:07 am
to american success and to the safety and security of the american people. >> let me ask you about immigration. you guys have taken a hard line on immigration. build the wall. tougher enforcement. the president signaled yesterday in a meeting that he was open to a legal pathway for undocumented immigrants. are you on board with that as well? are you open to such a pathway? >> well, let me say last night, i thought, was not only a great speech but great night for america. what the american people saw was a president laying out the specifics of an agenda that he ran on, and communicating both his strength and his heart in expressing that. and whether it be with repealing and replacing obamacare, whether it be tax relief and the economy or whether it be with immigration, i think the american people heard -- they really heard the president in full.
8:08 am
and last night he made it very clear that he intends to build a wall, to have the kind of internal enforcement that puts the safety of the american people first, that identifies the criminal element that is part of -- >> believe me, we have heard that. we have heard that. the question is whether he he is open to a pathway for undocumented immigrants here, or are you just not there yet? >> as the president said in the campaign, we'll see. he gave that famous speech in arizona where he literally said, look, we've got to do first thing's first. we've got to secure our border. a nation without borders is not a nation and it's not secure. so, we'll secure our border with that border wall. we'll have internal enforcement already under way. we'll strengthen our laws, provide not only more border agents, immigration and customs. these are things that the president has already put into motion. once we do that, as he said in arizona, with regard to those
8:09 am
remaining in this country we'll look at options and engage the congress. the overall tone of the president's speech last night, frankly, is just the same as i see every day. president trump is someone who leads by collaboration. he brings people together. last night he really challenged the congress to come together on behalf of the country and solve these intractable problems that, quite frankly, have been ignored for decades. >> i know you said it seems like more trump that you see every day is what the american people saw last night. let me ask you about additional policies. cbs news has learned that iraqi citizens may not be included in the president's revised stand. is that the case? and why so? >> i think we're evaluating both the ninth circuit's decision and other considerations. and in the days ahead we'll have a revised executive order that will come out. the president is just determined
8:10 am
to not only defend the first executive order in the courts, which we continue to believe is fully within his purview and presidential authority, but also to take that authority that is undisputed in the law with a new executive order. we live in a very dangerous world. i was just in europe, meeting with leaders of many of our allies. we all recognize the threat of terrorism in the world. and president trump is absolutely determined to do what we can in this moment to ensure the safety and security of the american people, put into place new vetting procedures and the revised executive order will be reflective of that. and the president's best judgment. >> and will more countries be added to that? >> well, i don't want to get ahead of the deliberation. i know that through a variety of agencies are putting finishing touches on that order and shubd o -- should be out in the next few days. >> last night's speech, did that
8:11 am
signal a change? it was different in tone from the inaugural address. did it signal a change? >> i think there's something very special about a joint session of congress, the moment that the president has an opportunity to speak in a completely unfiltered way to people all across the country. what i can tell people, as someone who has worked with the president every day since the election and gotten to know him very well over the course of the campaign, that was all him. what we have in president trump is someone who has broad shoulders, who is a fighter, willing to fight for what he believes in. he has a big heart. i think the american people saw that last night. and my hope is that members of congress in both parties will look at the agenda that the president laid out, work with this administration to ensure the security and the prosperity of the american people. >> let the legislating begin. >> that's right. >> that's right. all right. mr. vice president, thank you so much. >> thank you, norah. >> gayle, there you heard the vice president, who welcomed us
8:12 am
here into the ceremonial office about last night's speech. >> all right. norah, you hit all the notes we were wondering here in the studio. thank you so much. nice job. one of president trump's proposals got a huge reaction from a panel of voters ahead. we'll talk about the words that,

senior columnist and strategist frank lutts invited folks to take part in a group. they range from 25 to 65 years old. 11 in the group voted for donald trump in the election, nine voted for hillary clinton and one did not vote for either one of them. they all watched president trump's speech together and talked about their reactions. >> you saw what happened tonight. tell us what you thought was better. >> he was more rational. >> he was conciliatory, he acted presidential. so i think that's a very good first step. >> what else. >> i like the fact that he brought everyone together, democrats and republicans regarding veterans, taking care of veterans. that's not a political issue. regardless of what you think, these are people who served in the military, they're down on their luck financially. >> he did not address the problem with the v.a. the vm a. is not doing anything for the vets. >> we all want to see it change.
8:34 am
that was the point. there has to be a change and it's for both sides. >> i do believe he will take an action to change it. >> he went from the hate crimes, which i was concerned he would talk about, as he did, unity, and he went on how to try to come up with solutions. >> on the same hand that he talked about the hate crimes and the desecration of the jewish cemeteries which is horrible, he neglected to mention the desecration of the indian burial grounds with the pipeline. >> he delivered on his promises. he said, my job is to be the president of all americans. >> it's words. >> did he deliver that? did he deliver that tonight? >> yes, he did. >> what are we going to see tomorrow? that's what we should be watching for. up until now he hasn't said anything like this. he spoke in broad platitudes. who doesn't want their kids to
8:35 am
be healthy and safe. >> hold on, hold on. >> frank joins us from los angeles. the president for the most part is getting a lot of rave reviews including what the man picked up on in your focus group that he sounded presidential and looked presidential. what was the response from your group? >> yes. 16 out of 21 said that he exceeded expectations and only one person who spoke in that little clip felt that he fell short and the reason why is that he seemed to appeal universally to republicans and democrats, to treat the country as a whole rather than looking at individual groups. our trump people felt he kept his promises and hasn't backed down and our clinton people felt he is trying. he's making an effort to reach across the aisle. what's fascinating to me, they watched the democratic response as well and they were rather critical because they thought that was too partisan. one more thing, gayle. it's interesting that they always talk about what the president didn't say. even though the speech lasted
8:36 am
what, 45, 50 minutes? so often the american people are listening for what they don't here and that's what they complain about. >> frank, your focus group did something called a dial test during the speech. the red line indicates republican leaning voters and the green line indicates democratic leaning voters. let's look at when donald trump spoke of the $100 million infrastructure plan. >> i will be asking congress to produce legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in infrastructure of the united states financed through both finance and private capital creating millions of new jobs. this effort will be guided by two core principles. buy american and hire american. >> okay. frank, so there was a lot of action in the lines there. how did you read them and what did you make of that? >> so i asked them. that's exactly what they're looking for.
8:37 am
in fact, donald trump is at his best when he's focused economic populism. the infrastructure has significant support among republicans provided that it provides accountability and it has significant support among democrats provided that it supplies american jobs. so it works with both sides. and you saw those lines jump. that's exactly what the american people want to hear from him. >> the president also emphasized immigration and border security again last night, frank. let's watch how that played out on the dial test. >> at the same time my administration has answered the pleas of the american people for immigration enforcement and border security. by finally enforces our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions and billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. >> a much more divided response
8:38 am
there, frank. >> exactly. and it highlights the challenge that donald trump has, that on some of these issues such as building the wall, they're polarizing. 've though he had the chance, the principles behind immigration and some of the key issues, even the communication of principles, when they're talking -- when he's using lan fwaj from the campaign, democrats and clinton voters turned it down because it reminds them of what they didn't like about him. our country is still heavily polarized, heavily divided. donald trump took a huge step last night in bringing the country together, but it doesn't just happen in one speech. they want to see what happens next. >> he talked about obama. a lot of people find that polarizing. let's take a look at that. >> remember when you were told that you could keep your doctor and keep your plan, we now know that all of those promises have been totally broken. obamacare is collapsing and we
8:39 am
must act decisively to protect all americans. >> all right, frank. those lines very far apart. i know all of your group are california voters but you think it reflects the country. how so? first react with what you're seeing with these lines. >> it is polarized and the republicans responded favorably to what president trump said. what i found were the economic issues. the democrats were almost as high as the republicans and things like what happened in some of our major citieses, some of the hate crimes. there were even moments in the speech when democrats were more favorable toward donald trump than the republicans. that said it's still going to be difficult to get beyond the campaign. it's been five months since the election and the hostility toward democrats has not dissipated. they felt that this is the first time that he's presidential but several of them mentioned what is he going to tweet today, what

tommy mottola, welcome. you said broadway is a thousand times harder than the music business. why is that? >> there's so many moving parts and they're all so complicated. they're all on paper, it's one thing. but when you put it up on stage, truly the professionals have to take over and make this great idea work. stage them, make them move, make them speak, make them tie in and be complementary and so, you e know, it's difficult to do it on stage. >> and do it over and over. >> i have to say that little boy is fantastic. i look the whole vibe, the whole genre. you said, know these people, know that life, know that life. >> i was born and raised in the bronx. it's very near to me. it's chads palma terri's story.

challenging but extremely fulfilling creatively. >> well, tommy, they do not call you the hit maker for nothing. that song that came in by hall & oitsz, "you make my dreams come true." billy joel, you didn't start the fire. you said like driving a car, sex, or eating a hamburger. i need to listen to that song. i didn't hear that. what is it about that song -- >> that particular song was revolutionary. when billy played it for us the first time, you knew you were experiencing something special. it was political, it was topical. it had everything all in one. it said so much. >> it's like my whole life in a song. >> exactly. i felt it was overwhelming actually. >> what to you think of the state of the music industry right now do. you still think it's fostering talent and creativity? >> i think more than every
8:48 am
people have an insatiable appetite for it than they ever have and they have more coming at them because they have digital but i also thinks it makes it much harder to nurture and really embrace the process of building the next global superstars. i think the economics don't allow it. >> listen. you discovered mariah, you guys had a high-profile marriage, a high-profile divorce, and she still is going strong. what are your thoughts about her today and singing today? >> i think mariah is one of the most talented people i have ever come across in my career, certainly as a songwriter and a singer. >> when she struggles, tommy, with a performance like she did on new year's eve and pretty famously, what goes through your mind? >> that can happen to anyone unfortunately technically. adele at the grammys stopped the whole show and took charge. it's important for art iftzs to know they have that power, the ability to say, stop, i'm going
