♪ good morning from the studio 57 newsroom at cbs headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. president trump visits the u.s.-mexico border today as part of his push for border wall funding. yesterday the president walked out of talks with congressional leaders aimed at ending the government shutdown. marc liverman is here in new york with more on that. didn't get a lot of negotiation done yesterday. >> reporter: yeah, there's no question about that. if anything, yesterday's negotiations may have actually delayed any hopes of ending this partial government shutdown. all this as the fate of more than three quarters of a million workers' paychecks are in the hands of leaders on both sides of the aisle. 20 days into the partial government shutdown, president trump is getting out of washington. he's headed to texas where he'll visit the u.s.-mexico border. the trip comes a day after another meeting with congressional leaders made no progress in ending the standoff.
>> our meeting did not last long. >> reporter: the negotiations ended abruptly when both sides refused to budge over the president's demands for $5.7 billion for border wall funding. he tweeted that the meeting was a total waste of time. >> there will be no deal without a wall. there will be no deal without the priorities the president has put on the table. >> we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way, and he just walked out of the meeting. >> you're doing the right thing -- >> reporter: earlier in the oval office, the president said he's heard plenty of support from some of the 800,000 federal workers not getting paid. >> i hope we're going to have the situation worked out, but they want security in our country, and so do i. >> reporter: they'll all miss their first paycheck this week. it's frustrating for ashley totten whose husband is in the coast guard. >> a lot of talk and no action. >> reporter: the only branch of the military not being paid during the shutdown.

the russia investigation, directly overseeing the work of special counsel robert mueller. since appointing mueller in may of 2017, he's been a target of the president's criticism. he even re-tweeted an image of rosenstein behind bars, suggesting he was a traitor. the white house insists rosenstein is not being fired. >> i don't think there's any willingness by the president or the white house to push him out. >> reporter: barr told the white house he wanted his own deputy attorney general but praised rosenstein during meetings with senators on capitol hill. >> how do you assess the job that mr. rosenstein has done? >> excellent. >> reporter: if confirmed, barr would likely inherit oversight of the russia investigation which he criticized in an unsolicited memo to justice officials in june saying part of it was, quote, fatally misconceived. house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff said the remarks are grounds for barr to have to recuse himself from the high-stakes investigation. >> he's already expressed deeply prejudicial comments about the special counsel investigation. >> reporter: but senator lindsey graham, a vocal supporter of the president, said barr expressed confidence in mueller during their meeting.
>> i asked mr. barr directly, do do you think mr. mueller's on a witch hunt. he said no. >> reporter: barr's previous criticism of the russia investigation is expected to play a key part in his confirmation hearings which begin next week. and in an interesting aside, barr and mueller have known each other for decades. their wives are longtime friends. paula reid, cbs news, the justice department. democratic activist tom steyer says he will not run for the white house in 2020 but will instead focus on calling for president trump's impeachment. many expected the california billionaire investor to announce his candidacy yesterday at an event in des moines, iowa. instead he said that he's spending $40 million designed to pressure the house to begin impeachment hearings. he has already spent $50 million. north korean leader kim wants a second summit with president trump to discuss the nuclear standoff. chinese state media today

which deployed vessels in december to shadow the "stennis." when you put that big chess piece down in a certain place, part of the world, it means you're serious. >> you've got iran, yemen, syria, iraq, isis, afghanistan -- >> yes. >> reporter: quite a full plate. >> it is a full plate, yes. but that's why we're here. >> reporter: that became apparent as we watched dozens of f-18s catapulted off the deck returning hours later to a dead stop, pilots describe as a controlled crash. this is what it looks like down here in the engine room. this is a system that has to work as many as 75 times a day and well into the night. while the sailors here are more than capable of keeping up the pace, no one could be certain of what's on the horizon. charlie d'agata, cbs news, aboard the "uss john c. stennis" in the persian gulf.
