7:04 am
get his stalled agenda on track. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. kelly ice arrival creates a vacancy at homeland security. his secretary elaine duke will hold that post until a new nominee is named and a senate confirmation process is completed. >> he will do a spectacular job, i have no doubt, as chief of staff. what he's done in terms of homeland security is record shattering. >> reporter: president trump spoke favorably of his new chief of staff announcing he would replace reince priebus who helped draft kelly into the administration. kelly is tasked with bringing discipline and professionalism to the warring west wing. that means controlling access to the president and organizing decisionmaking, a contrast to the president's own volatile approach. mr. trump has fired a national security adviser adviser, an fbi
7:05 am
director and a holdover acting attorney general. press secretary, communications director, deputy chief of staff, deputy national security adviser adviser and legal team spokesmen have all resigned. >> he was right to hit the reset button and i think it was something that i think the white house needs. i think it's healthy. >> reporter: priebus, whose influence inside the white house had been in decline for weeks, accepted the inevitable. budget director nick maul va knee offered this theory. >> i think the president wants to go a different direction, wants a little more discipline and struck you are in in there. >> reporter: there was no sign kelly slowed the president's twitter habits, he unloaded 13 tweets on saturday including hits on republicans for failing to repeal and replace obamacare, saying they looked like, quote, fools. >> you have to let trump be trump. >> campaign manager corey lewandowski said we should understand his instincts are fixed. >> that's what's made him successful in the last 30 yaers,

what the american people voted for. anybody who thinks they'll change donald trump doesn't know donald trump. >> contenders to replace kelly at homeland security include texas michael mccaul, tom bossert, tom homan, and a long shot attorney general jeff sessions. his name was raised but several sources tell us that is unlikely. >> major, peter baker talked to jim baker, sort of the gold standard for being chief of staff. baker said it depends on how well you do depend on whether you emphasize the chief or the staff. what attributes both good and bad does john kelly bring to the job? >> reporter: let's talk about advantages. one of the reasons that reince priebus was around for so long is president trump could not find a replacement he really wanted. now he has one and everyone here knows that. all the warring factions at least for now are making all the right nows about wanting to follow kelly's lead. he also doesn't have any of the embedded loyalty questions that arose around reince priebus during the campaign when after
7:07 am
that "access hollywood" tape broke, priebus was one of the few in the inner campaign circle to suggest to the president he might want to step out of the campaign. that never left priebus's questions about loyalties. advantages, also, that kelly has, the next big issue for this white house, tax reform. the president and the treasury secretary will take the lead there. disadvantages, he has no relationship really on capitol hill andhe has no experience with all these warring factions if they turn against each other. yet again. >> but the president loves generals. >> reporter: he does indeed. >> thanks, major. >> reporter: you got it. the u.s. is telling north korea and its main ally china the time to talk is over. u.n. ambassador nikki haley spoke out after the second north successful missile test this month. they launched with a live test and two fly by bombers. analysts say north korea missile may have the range to reach california or even the east
7:08 am
coast of the united states. julianna goldman is at the pentagon with the newest potential threat. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. as the u.s. assesses its next steps officials are faced with the fact in many ways it's too late. an unstable and unpredictable regime has developed its nuclear missile technology faster than anticipated and the president has limited options. with tensions rising, the u.s. flexed its military muscle along with its south korean and japanese allies, first with a live fire missile test on friday, and in a joint exercise saturday two u.s. superresponsibilityic bombers conducted a flyover of the korean peninsula. the military also carried out what the military carried out as a successful preplanned missile defense test in the pacific. it showed what it would look like if the thaad system intercemented a north korean rocket. video purportedly shows north korea launching a missile friday with the country's leader kim jong-un overseeing the test.
7:09 am
analysts say friday's launch proves that north korea could have the capability to hit u.s. mainland including los angeles and possibly chicago, new york, and near washington, d.c. over the weekend president trump tweeted he was disappointed in china's response. they do nothing for us with north korea, just talk, adding, china could easily solve this problem. >> all options are on the table. >> reporter: traveling in eastern europe, vice president pence reiterated the president's sentiment and said the u.s. was losing patience with china. >> the president of the united states is leading a coalition of nations to bring pressure to bear until that time that north korea will permanently abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile program. >> reporter: on sunday a massive military parade in china's northern region honored the 90th anniversary of the chinese people's liberation army and showed off t country's enormous military strength. china's president did not
7:10 am
directly respond to president trump at that parade but it did come just hours after his tweets. now, over the past couple of years, president xi has been greatly expanding china's military, a challenge to the u.s. in the region. charlie? >> thanks. michael morrell is a former cia acting director and deputy director. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we've had two successful launches by the north koreans. what's the conversation in the pentagon and the white house about u.s. options? >> charlie, on paper there are three options. there's continued diplomacy. there is at one end of the spectrum acceptance along with containment and deterrence. at the other end of the spectrum is military action. i don't believe that diplomacy is a possible option. we've been at that for 25 years. it hasn't moved the ball forward at all. i think the president is right when he says diplomacy has
7:11 am
failed. so that leaves us with the two extremes and the risks, there are risks social securitied with both extremes. i think this is going to be the most significant decision the president of the united states makes during his presidency in four or eight years. think this is the defining national security issue of his presidency. >> go ahead. >> if you can't really bomb, if you're saying you can't really negotiate, what is that option of containment? because won't north korea also seek to sell some of this technology to other rogue states? >> the option of a acceptance, containment, and deterrence involves convincing them, making absolutely clear to them the way we did to the soviet union that the way we do to russia today, if they use those weapons or sell those weapon, that will be the end of the regime. we have the make that crystal clear to them. >> and how? >> you do it through your actions and you do it through your words, right? you send somebody to north korea and sit down with them and say
7:12 am
this is what will happen to you if you ever attack us. >> exactly what are we talking about when we talk about an military option? are we talking about bombing their facilities wherever they are if we can, talking about attacking a missile on a launch pad or using cyber aggression? >> i think all of those options are going to be discussed in the white house. i think the most extreme option is take out every nuclear and missile facility that you are aware of, take out all of those weapons along the dmz that would be used to i attack south korea in retaliation, and possibly even decapitate the regime, go after kim jong-un if possible. so all of those options are going to be discussed. and the risks associated with military action have been talked about, the horrific possible war. >> what does horrific mean? >> horrific means a second korean war, attacks on seoul, 25 million people. that's what horrific means in that content.
7:13 am
in the acceptance context, horrific means some day this man might decide to use nuclear weapons against the continental united states. those are the risks that the president will be addressing as he tries to make this decision. >> thank you. >> always good to talk to you. russia is ramping up retaliation against the u.s. over new sanctions. russian president vladimir putin told the u.s. yesterday to slash its staff in russia by 755 people. his order comes in response to expanded sanctions passed by congress. elizabeth palmer is in moscow with the simmering tensions that have cold war echos. ly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the state department has called this russian action regrettable and uncalled for, but the russians are saying they had no choice but to react to the tightening of sanctions against them. all weekend as the world waited, president putin didn't say a
7:14 am
were about russia's retaliation against the u.s. he was busy with the pomp of russia's navy day, a celebration, and also a reminder that russian muscle extends out over the oceans too. finally on sunday evening he weighed in. the american diplomatic division in russia, he said, would have to lose over 755 personnel. "we waited quite some time for something to change for the better," he said, referring to relations with washington, "but it became clear it wouldn't be soon." the state department won't reveal how many people it employs, but the russians say there are 1,200 in moscow and three other cities. two-thirds of them will have to be cut so the american diplomatic operation is trimmed to the same size as russia's mission in the u.s. the u.s. will also lose access to a storage facility and its beautiful country house and leafy property on the outskirts of moscow.
7:15 am
this is the latest round in a tit for tat deterioration in relations between the trump administration and the kremlin which begap last thursday when congress voted to extend sanctions against russia and on friday the rugs hit back and then hinted russia may not be done with retaliation. >> we have a very rich toolbox at our disposal. it would be ridiculous on my part to start speculating on what may or may not happen. >> reporter: there's no confirmation yet, but it does look as if the vast majority of those 755 people who are going to lose their jobs will be russians, locally hired to work in support of american programs, everything from trade and commerce to agriculture. charlie? >> elizabeth palmer in moscow. thank you. venezuela's political crisis is in a dangerous new phase. a disputed election could grant the ruling party almost unlimited power. at least ten people died in

7:18 am
>> pas. >> reporter: falling oil prices coupled with skyrocketing inflation have crippled venezuela's economy. oil accounts for nearly half of the government's revenue. and venezuela is the third largest supplier of oil to the u.s., which buys about a third of the country's crude. why are you out here today? young venezuelans like diana say they just want their voices heard. >> you feel like you don't have what you want, what you deserve. >> reporter: what's that? >> liberty. what you want to do, really want to do. >> reporter: you don't feel you have freedom. >> no, we don't. >> reporter: president maduro declared a sweeping victory hours after the polls closed, claiming 8 million venezuelans voted for the assembly, but the opposition believes that number is much lower. in fact, less than 3 million. we expect to see more marches and clashes today, the turmoil here only likely to continue. >> manuel bojorquez in venezuela. thank you. australia is tightening

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's monday july 31st, 2017. welcome back to cbs this morning. republican senator said it's party abandoned their principles. also the university telling hundreds of would be fresh men we have no room for you anymore. but first here's today's eye opener at 8:00. president trump is trying to start a new chapter with a new chief of staff. john kelly was sworn in in the oval office. >> general kelly will go down in terms of the position of chief of staff. one of the great ever. >> what are we talking about.
8:01 am
i think the most extreme option is take out every nuclear and missile facility. take out all of those weapons and possibly even decapitate the regime. >> the state department has called this action regretful and uncalled for but the russians are saying they have no choice. >> this is the aftermath of yesterday's violence. u.s. is vowing sanctions on venezuela as early as today. >> the main artery in the outer banks. it's the only road drivers can use to escape the black out. visitors can't come back until power is restored. >> served as ring master to a revolution on his widely watched talk shows. >> sitting across from someone that made conversation on tv the best it could be it's a little intimidating for me. >> i dared them to cut this out. you are really good. >> coming from you that means a lot. >> i say that to everybody of
8:02 am
course. >> gayle and nora are off. the time for talking about north korean aggression is over. she is urging international action after that country's latest missile test. >> haley called on china to help ramp up pressure on north korea's government. president trump and japan's leader shinzo abe spoke on the phone last night and agreed to increase economic and diplomatic pressure. >> the white house is looking for a reset this morning as john kelly takes over. president trump met with his cabinet this morning after the retired four star general was sworn in. he is counting on kelly to bring order to the west wing. the homeland security secretary takes over for prebis that re-signed friday. the shake up comes as the president puts new pressure on republican senators over health care. he tweeted the world is watching repeal and replace.
8:03 am
>> republican senator believed the gop is no longer conservative in his new book conscious of a conservative the arizona senator writes never has a party so quickly or easily abandoned it's core principles as my party did in the course of the 2016 campaign. a broad consensus on economic philosophy and free trade to an incoherent and untrue mash of populist slogans. >> welcome. >> thank you for having me on. >> in the sequence of disappointments and blunders rattled mr. trump's volatile coalition like mr. trump's attacks on attorney general sessions. and vice communications chief and collapse of a conservative backed health care legislation. what has happened? why is this happening? >> being a conservative doesn't just mean that you adhere to conservative policy. limited government, individual
8:04 am
responsibility. your demeanor that you in foreign policy, it's nothing if not sober and measured and that matters in the white house. it matters as congress as well and we lost that. >> you write erratic behavior is the opposite of conservatives. >> that's right. during the nixon era he had what was called the mad man theory. he wanted our adversaries to think that he was a little off kilter and that might provide some strategic advantage but there has to be some underlying strategy beneath that and i don't sense that we have that now and if you just have erratic behavior from principle that's not a good combination. >> is donald trump a republican? >> yes. he won as a republican. >> from your description you're saying his behavior does not match with the principles of the
8:05 am
republican party that you carry. >> i do think that he has some things that he has done have been conservative. he appointed a great supreme court justice. regulatory policy that he has embraced is conservative. his instincts on tax policy i think are conservative but some things are profoundly unconservative. the protectionist attitude. discounting free trade agreements. trying to get out of multinational free trade agreements. isolationism. that's not conservative. we need desperately to play a game of addition and not subtraction and, you know, i think this campaign, this 2016 campaign was all about drilling down on a base and not adding to numbers. >> let's talk about this book. you kept it a secret from your staff while you were writing it. why. >> this was tough to write. you never walk to particularly in an election year.
8:06 am
or an election period. ou never want to upset the apple cart. it was difficult to ride. i don't want to be talked out of it though. this was too important. i think we have a crisis of principle and we needed to get back to what conservative really means and that's the combination for the future. so i did keep it quite just until a couple of weeks ago but now i hope everyone reads it. i hope people in the white house and certainly my colleagues as well. >> do you expect to have the support of president trump in your re-election bid. >> that's up to him. obviously there's only 52 senators. we have a small majority but we have reached about the limits of what we can do with our small majority. we have to start reaching across the aisle and what bothers me most is that the big problems that we have to deal with whether it's foreign policy issues or domestic problems like our looming debt and deficit, $20 trillion in debt will be
8:07 am
adding again a trillion dollars a year in deficit to that debt. you can only do that if both parties sit down and share the risk and that's not going to happen when you refer to the other party as my enemies or losers or clowns you can't sit down together. >> if, in fact, the president had tried to negotiate in terms of infrastructure and then moved to health care would he have had a better opportunity of fashioning a health care bill that would have repaired obamacare rather than repealing it? >> i think so. we should have started with something else. keep in mind i'm from arizona. it's ground zero for the failure of the exchange. 200,000 will wake up today with no health care. most of them used to have it but it's gone now because premiums are too high and they can't buy it on the exchange so we need reforms there. >> the president talked and tweeted about changing the voe
8:08 am
rules. does that have prospects of happening? >> no and it shouldn't. that will be a big mistake. we at our best in the senate when we work across the aisle. i think obamacare many of the problems that it has because it was pushed through by one party. by the same token we found it difficult of one party to repeal it so i don't want to go back and forth from one to another. sits sauce their cools the milk. they force us to work across the aisle. they invite us to work across the aisle and we're better when we do that. >> your dedication is to that bureau that met on a far away beach so long ago. i'm assuming that is your wife cheryl. >> in the green room. >> better be. >> that is cheryl.
8:09 am
>> there she is. >> we met on the beach on the northshore in hawaii, byu has a campus there, first day of school. >> thank you for coming senator. >> thank you much. >> thank you, senator. >> conscious of a conservative goes on sale tomorrow. hundreds of students that thought they were going to a topical cal university are told not to come.

only three. our findings condemn a pretty condemning exclusion. >> why is that? the question is why are they not hiring if in fact they were hiring? what factors would cause them to do more? more successful films of a certain kind or what? >> absolutely. there's an argument and often they lead to the gender of the character with the lead director. if only 34 films feature a colleague, it gives females fewer opportunitieses out of the top 100 last year. women aren't on the consideration list. we asked 59 executives how many top of mind directors could they think of. the mode was zero. the average was three. people aren't recalling female directors to consider them across the range of these top directing jobs. >> is there also just a shortage of good scripts and opportunities? there's a good selection in the
8:38 am
direction rather than opportunity. >> that's a great question. there are amazing stories to be told and the female prowess. it's the lack of decision-making and green leaning of who says these stories can move through. >> do you think the film's success will make a difference? >> it should but often it doesn't. 900 films, year in and year out. >> even with a film like wonder woman, patty jenkins, making so much money, doesn't it always come down to particulars and sense? >> it should when ha of the box office is women. 49% is women of color. you would think, why are we leaving money on the table. "ruana," "hidden figures," "girls trip." scott pierzynski is unique.
