the morning show. >> a powerful hand. >> stop talking! [ laughter ] >> have a beautiful day. captioning funded by cbs good morning to our viewers in the west. it's thursday, april 27th, 2017. welcome to "cbs this morning." the white house reveals the outline of a sweeping tax cut plan without saying who will benefit. we'll talk with treasure secretary mnuchin about the lack of details. many lawmakers are frustrated this morning after being summoned to without for a briefing on the north korea threat. we'll ask senator john mccain if he learned anything new. and about a dozen current and former employees sue fox news claiming severe racial harassment at work. anchor kelly wright, part of the lawsuit, comes to studio 57. but we begin with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. the president is going to
7:01 am
seize this opportunity by leading the most significant tax reform legislation since 1986. >> the president proposes massive tax cuts. >> it will blow up the deficit and debt, probably $7 trillion according to some estimates. >> great plan. >> we're going to put people back to work. >> the status of health care today, the freedom caucus saying they are signing on to this latest version. >> we're hopeful that there may be a vote soon. we don't want to put an artificial deadline on this, brett. we learned that a few weeks ago. >> this was a very clear, sober and serious briefing. >> senators gathered on white house grounds for an unprecedented classified briefing on north korea. >> i did not see any new information. it felt more like a dog and pony show to me than anything else. fox news channel anchor joined a racial discrimination lawsuit against the company. >> this hurts. this hurts.
7:02 am
united airlines announcing new guidelines following the controversy of a passenger being dragged off one of its planes. >> a strong storm system is stretching from the gulf coast all the way to the canadian border. >> it's been pretty bad. all that. >> dramatic scene on highway 101 in northern california. >> a hillside giving way. >> holy cow. >> joe biden shows up in d.c. to see the wizards duel the hawks. >> gets a standing ovation. >> and all that matters. >> president trump has a single red button on his oval office desk that he can push at any time. >> oh, god, what happens when he pushes the button. >> a white house butler arrives with a coke for the president. >> on "cbs this morning." >> you know it would be pretty bad if he were trying to order a coke and accidentally orderd a nuclear strike. but it would be bad if he had to launch an attack and accidentally ordered a soda. we have to send kim jong-un a message. ah.
7:03 am
this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump's newest initiative for his first 100 days is a tax cut with big goals and very few specifics. but the trump blueprint would slash tax rates and eliminate some deductions, it doubles the standard deduction that most taxpayers take and would eliminate taxes that are overwhelmingly paid by high income americans. >> the president's treasury secretary and economic advisors say tax cuts will pay for themselves by growing the economy. other analysts say they'll explode the national debt. >> this proposal is one page long and contains very few details. officials are saying almost nothing about who will benefit the most. margaret brennan is at the white house with the plan that's months away from a vote. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well, the u.s. has the highest
7:04 am
corporate tax rate in the world, and the biggest cuts in the president's plan go to large his own. but it remains unclear how the administration will pay for a plan estimated to reduce tax revenue by $7 trillion over a decade. >> we're going to put people back to work. >> reporter: president trump says his blueprint will unleash economic growth. >> we will have a massive tax cut for businesses. >> reporter: treasure secretary steven mnuchin argued slashing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 15% will give businesses extra cash to hire and spend. >> this is not just about large corporations. small and medium-sized businesses will be eligible for the business rate as well. >> that may help bring investment back to the u.s. according to maya mcginniss of the committee for responsible federal budget. >> this is a very aggressive, very significant corporate tax
7:05 am
rate cut and i think white have have huge effects on our competitiveness. >> reporter: leader chuck schumer dismissed it as a giveaway to the wealthy. >> they don't need another huge tax break while middle-class americans and those struggling to get there need help just staying afloat. >> reporter: details are expected by august. and white house economic adviser gary cohn could not yet say how much of a tax break lower and middle-class americans will get. >> we will let you know the specific details at the appropriate moment. >> reporter: the goal is to simplify the tax code but whittling down the seven personal income tax brackets to three, with rates of 10, 25 and 35%. wealthy americans like the president himself will benefit from eliminate the alternative minimum tax as well as the estate tax. ivanka trump assured reporters tuesday that families will also receive tax credits for child and adult day care. just how the administration will make up for all of the lost revenue without adding to the nearly $20 trillion debt is
7:06 am
unclear. that hard work may now be up to congress. the opening bid sounds like they hope that somebody will ratchet it back and make it fiscally responsible. >> reporter: and just yesterday, after floating that idea of a 24% duty on canadian lumber a white house official publicly floated the idea that the president was considering withdrawing from the north american free trade agreement and immediately hit the financial markets. hours later in a phone call with the leaders of in mexico and canna, mr. trump reapurds them he was not going to do that and he plans to renegotiate nafta, something congress has not yet given him the authority to do. >> margaret thanks. in our next hour treasury secretary steve mnuchin will join us and we'll try to get more details on the president's tax plan and a reminder, a special reminder, on monday, we will bring you a special edition of "cbs this morning" from inside the white house. it will feature john dickerson's
7:07 am
interview with president trump which will debut sunday on "face the nation". >> republican house leaders may have overcome one of the biggest road blocs to repealing obamacare. the effort failed last month when a group of conservatives refused to support it. well now members of that group say they'll support a revised version of the american health care act. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the changes that other members might reject. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. those conservative members always felt the gop plan left too many of obamacare's minimum coverage requirements in place, requirements they believe drive up premiums. well, there's a new compromise that they support and that is a big breakthrough, except that some moderates think it makes the bill worse. >> certainly now we're down to days, not weeks. >> reporter: after weeks of negotiatings, members of the conservative freedom caucus say they are finally ready to vote yes. >> we're supportive of the amendment and underlying bill as it's coming forward. >> reporter: virginia's dave brat is one memberer who came
7:08 am
around. >> none of us are going to be totally happy. i'm a free market guy. it's better ways to move some of this stuff, but we want the momentum to go forward, tax reform, getting the budget through and all that. >> reporter: this is what got him there, a new amendment allowing states to eliminate some of obamacare's patient protections including one that prevents insurers from jacking up rates for people with preexisting conditions. those states would be given funds to set up high risk pools to cover those who would no longer be able to afford insurance. >> this is a different twist and i have to reexamine it. >> reporter: meant to appease conservatives is turning off moderates. >> help the people harmed by the affordable care act but not harm the people that were helped by it. >> we need to take a step back. >> reporter: pennsylvania republican charlie dent has always been a no and believes this amendment violates one of the party's promises. >> well, it could affect people with preexisting conditions and it will make insurance probably
7:09 am
much more expensive for them and in some cases inaccessible. >> reporter: the question is how many members will defect. gop leaders aren't sure. >> could we see a vote on health care this week or next? >> we'll see. with we'll vote when we get the votes. >> reporter: another sticking point for several republicans is a provision in this new plan that keeps those obamacare protections in place for members of congress and their aides. the authors say it's in there for technical reasons but they know how it looks and they will figures out a way to work around it. >> thank you. the trump administration is calling north korea a very grave threat, but also says it's ready to negotiate. senators piled into busses yesterday to attend an unprecedented classified briefing at the white house. house members were briefed at the capitol. the u.s. said its thaad missile defense in south korea will be operational in a few days. china, north korea's main ally, opposes that u.s. move. the chinese say they'll carry out military drills in response.
7:10 am
adriana diaz is in beijing with the new effort to avoid a possible war. adriana, good morning to you. >> good morning. with tensions mounting here in asia, the trump administration says it wants to diffuse the situation, to try to bring pyongyang to the table peacefully, u.s. officials laid out options wednesday, including ratcheting up diplomatic pressure, harsher sanctions and relifting the regime as a state sponsor of terrorism. while a diplomatic solution is preferred the u.s. strike group deployed to the peninsula is a few days away and the pentagon says it has military plans ready as a last option. secretary of state rex tillerson will make a case to further isolate north korea diplomatically on friday at the u.n. the u.n. announced it's sending a human rights expert for the first time to north korea next week. the question is, how much it will actually be allowed to see. >> thanks, adriana diaz, in beijing. republican senator john mccain of arizona was at the white house briefing yesterday
7:11 am
on north korea. he joins us now from capitol hill. senator mccain, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let me begin with this, not only were you at that briefing but you've had a series of phone calls with the president and you called the syrian strike a moment in his presidency with the cruise missile attacks in syria not just because of the damage but because it sent a signal unlike previous years that america will act. what should the north koreans assume america will do? >> i think they should assume that the united states will react forcefully, but charlie, there's a real complication and that is along the dmz, they have artillery and capabilities that would reign seoul, a city of 26 million people, that complicates things dramatically and why a lot of emphasis has to be on the only power that can restrain them and that's china. chinese have cut back on the coal supply, but i was not encouraged when the chinese came
7:12 am
against our air defense system being in place in south korea. the chinese have to really be made aware that this could have a profound effect on our relations with china because if this -- if this exchange begins, the north koreans likely could reign seoul with artillery and that could be catastrophic. >> was there any indication from that meeting at the white house yesterday that military action against north korea is imminent? >> no. but it is clear and i totally agree that that option can't be taken off the table but it has to be the absolute last option. but when i say last option that is when we are convinced that north korea has that capability to launch a missile that could strike with a nuclear weapon the west coast of the united states.
7:13 am
this leader is not rationale. he is not a person that we can depend op to act in a rationale fashion. >> what is the red line for acting? because we believe he has what you just said. >> if it were up to me, charlie, i would probably say a missile on the launch pad that we knew for sure had a nuclear weapon on it. i don't think we could wait to launch. we do have defensive capabilities that can intercept missiles. but to count on that alone, i think would be very risky business. look, this is a very serious shao. very, very serious. and there's nothing wrong with being called down to the white house to talk about it. and it's also the product of three previous administration presidents that negotiate, what they believed was good faith, and turned out to be utterly false, while the north koreans progressed in their effort to
7:14 am
acquire a missile and a weapon. >> one of your colleagues described the meeting yesterday as a dog and pony show. i'm wondering what your characterization was? did you learn anything? >> i didn't particularly, because this is my day-to-day business, but i think they learned about the options that we have, i think that the attention we're paying to it, but i don't think they could expect a specific course of action because as we just described, our courses of action would be dictated by north korean behavior. >> senator, one article about you and president trump said how trump came around to mccain on foreign policy. you had this dinner with him, along with lindsey graham. what did you learn about him? what did you come away with and did it change your mind about donald trump? >> well, i've always had respect for the office of the president of the united states. he was very cordial and we had a lot of discussion on a lot of issues.
7:15 am
i was pleased, for example, yesterday that they did not move forward with the revocation of the north american free trade agreement, which known as nafta, which would have devastated the economy of my state. i don't think it's me. i think it's a person assuming the most important job in the world and understanding those responsibilities and in the case of national security, surrounding himself with some of the brightest people i've ever known and i've known many of them, charlie, longer than i've known you, which goes back to the coolidge administration. >> yes, it does. we liked cal, didn't we? >> a long time. >> well senator mccain, it's always good to see you. so bright and early in the morning. thank you so much, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> take care. united airlines announced new policies overnight in an effort to restore confidence among passengers. the new guidelines came -- come after officers dragged a man off an overbooked united flight earlier this month. a senate committee is conducting
7:16 am
its own investigation. ui need's changes -- united changes include more employee training, using law enforcement for safety issues and reducing overbooking. don dahler is at newark international airport with the company's new promises. >> the incident on flight 3411 and united's delayed apology to dr. david dao created a pr nightmare and now united's ceo are taking action to win back the trust of their customers. >> oh, my god! look at what you did to him. >> reporter: the treatment of united passenger dr. david dao prompted outrage. his attorney says he suffered a broken nose and concussion when he was pulled off the overbooked flight. now the country's fourth largest airline is introducing ten new customer service policies to make sure an incident like that doesn't happen again. one of the new fwlooins, prohibit -- guidelines prohibits passengers from having to give up their seat involuntary unless safety or security is at risk,

7:18 am
policies will take effect starting today. others will be rolled out in the coming months and in june, united will start compensating passengers for any permanently lost luggage up to $1500. gayle? >> thank you. delta is standing by its decision to kick a man off of a plane for using the bathroom before takeoff. >> i purchased a ticket. i had an emergency. >> flight attendants told kima hamilton he could not get up to use the bathroom while his plane to milwaukee was waiting on the tarmac in atlanta. he did so claiming it was an emergency as you heard there. the pilot then taxied back to the gate where hamilton was met by delta officials and the aircraft left without him. delta says it's imperative that passengers comply with crew instructions during all phases of a flight. severe weather sweeping across parts of the country this morning. the massive system stretching from louisiana all the way to michigan. powerful thunderstorms flooded

7:35 am
because i thought about collectively how behind the scenes many of us have gone to the water cooler and talked about not just their plight, but the plight of other people of color at the company and how there have been remarks like, gee, kelly, if you were blond, you could probably anchor here monday through friday. comments like that really began to sting me especially when i was trying to work within the framework of the company, talking to my leader saying, look, we're better than this, we can do better than this, freechb a sound business decision, let's reach out to all people and i'm raising my hands as the only black male anchor you have right now to say put me in the game, give me opportunities to do more, and i thought we were really going to try to do that. >> your language is very strong because the lawsuit says, the color of your skin, you were, quote, effectively sidelined and asked to reform the role of a jim crow. that's very, very explosive

are missing from the one page blue print for big corporate and personal tax cuts. plan would reduce seven personal income tax brackets to three. the rates would be 10, 25, 35%, but the income levels for the brackets were not announced. >> the president wants to double the standard deduction most use and he'd eliminate the state tax and the alternative minimum tax. it's unclear how the administration would make up for lost revenue without adding to the nearly $20 trillion national debt. >> speaking to reporters at the white house yesterday, treasury secretary steven mnuchin and economic adviser gary kohn made it clear that the blueprint is heavy on to be determined. >> when we have an agreement, we will release the details and -- >> it's going to mean a tax cut. >> we'll let you know the specific details at the appropriate moment. >> there's lots and lots of
8:03 am
details that will go into how that will pay for itself. >> we will get back to you with definitive an answers. >> when we have an agreement we'll release the details. >> secretary mnuchin is with us from the treasury department. good morning, mr. secretary. >> good morning, it's great to be here with you. thank you. >> great to have you here. as you mentioned, this would be historic tax cuts. estimated to cost the american taxpayer $7 trillion over a decade. so when will you tell us how you'll pay for it? >> well, let me first say, this is about the most sweeping, biggest tax cuts and sweeping tax reform in history. and the president is focused on creating economic growth. this is all about economic growth around american jobs. that's what the president is committed to. in regards to the pay fors, i don't know how people could estimate the costs since we haven't released the details but
8:04 am
this is paid for by economic growth and by a reduction of many, many deductions and special interests. >> why put it out now, mr. secretary, without all of the details? >> i think the american public wanted to hear about it. you know, this is something we have been talking about since the campaign. >> mr. secretary, the question is, what kind of economic growth do you have to have in order to pay for the tax cuts? the massive tax cuts you're recommending. >> well, we feel confident that we can can get to at least 3% economic growth on a sustained basis. >> when? >> that's something we have said. that's something that we're confident with. and the american economy has been held back and this is about unleashing economic growth. it's a combination of the tax plan. it's the combination of regulatory relief and the combination of our trade principles. and those three are where they'll create economic growth that's been held back in this country. >> the republican party is famous for being against debt and deficits.
8:05 am
the president less so. what impact is it going to have on deficits over a ten-year period? >> well, again, charlie, i think the president is very concerned that the debt has grown from 10 to $20 trillion under the last administration. and that's something we're very conscious of and as we go through the details of the plan we're comfortable we can pay for most of the plan and that's something we'll be looking at when we report the ten-year numbers. >> so what are you going to do about the american corporations that have a lot of cash -- not cash so much, but a lot of earnings stowed away in places around the world and not bringing it back because of taxes? >> well, charlie, it's not a surprise that people have left trillions of dollars off shore, given the complexity of our system and the way it works and we've spoken to hundreds of business executives. we're going to have a one-time tax for repatriation and we expect that we'll get trillions of dollars back on shore. and that will be invested in american capital and american jobs. that's what this is all about. >> you say it will create more
8:06 am
jobs. how so? >> this is about creating jobs, because many surveys show that 70% or more of the tax burden is borne by the american worker. and this is about putting money back in the american workers' pocket and investing more money in plant and equipment to build american plants and create jobs. >> mr. secretary, as you know a lot of the reporting on this say that this is a lot of tax cuts for the rich. if that is portrayed as such, you'll have a tough time in congress. >> well, charlie, as i said before, the president's objective is about tax simplification. we will be lowering the rate on the high end in return for eliminating almost all deductions. we're committed to keeping charitable deductions and mortgage interest, but everything else is on the table. and this is about tax simplification. it's also about creating economic growth and having people invest. >> and you have the republicans in congress on board? >> we do.

8:08 am
asked him yesterday to renegotiate rather than terminate nafta. that threat of withdrawal was first floated by white house officials who said adviser steve bannon was behind it. blowing up a free trade deal certainly fits with the type of protectionist policies he's known for, but it's a risky game to play with two of america's biggest trading relationships. concerned business leaders including wall street executives who work here convinced the president to instead agree to negotiations. once congress gives the green light. now, talking tough on trade is risky. today the president will sign a memo scrutinizing how china has squeezed that industry, but he will not deliver on that campaign promise to label china a currency manipulator. he of course needs beijing's hope on other issues like north korea. >> margaret, thanks.

8:36 am
>> don't you, don't you. >> right then i realized that two notes sung together like that create harmony and that creates a cord and so from that moment on, every song i heard, i was searching for harmony. >> and you said, i want to do that. >> it was -- i started listening to music, not just hearing it. >> when you talk to all the moms, virginia, every mother seems to have a story look that. you saw a lot of similarities with their mothers and their kids like it was unstoppable. >> they were tuned in in a different way. they heard sounds that -- dre heard the '70s music and he heard every instrument and every tone. and then he -- you know, what he did later was just put them all together. take them apart. >> was there an age. >> always consistently, write this down, 12 to 13. they just declared at that point, music is my life. don't expect me to do anything
