9:01 am
okay. >> can you imagine a week and sunny weekend. >> i don't know what to do with myself. >> what about the future chief of san francisco coming from sunny la. william scott in here. >> we usually have better weather than this. >> you're getting a ton of rain in the south as well. los angeles and all over california, weather wise it's clearing up. first, let's follow breaking news we have been reporting. vallejo police are investigating a deadly officer involved shooting. investigators say it happened shortly after midnight while officers were responding a large party on sacramento street. officers were forced to shoot a 21-year old suspect threatening someone else with a knife. we have our alex savage heading to the scene. we'll bring him in for a live report at 9:30. massive clean up efforts underway to clear a 150-foot tall eucalyptus tree that fell in the east bay.
9:02 am
allie rasmus is there with more on the time line when the tree will be cut up and taken away. >> reporter: they expect it will take several days to get through this. we're in lafayette in the parking lot of the restaurant near downtown lafayette and look at the mess. you can see some of the branches have been sawed off and the tree trimming service got here an hour ago and they have made quite a bit of progress since this. they had to take a break. take a look at the back of the truck. it's almost full and still a lot more tree branches to go through. one worker estimates they will probably fill oup 3464 truckloads like this by the end of the day -- -- fill up. during the heavy rain around 5:00 this eucalyptus tree that stood 150 feet tall came tumbling down in the parking lot. several cars were crushed. you could see the cars a short time ago when they cleared the branches. the base of the tree is 15 feet
9:03 am
wide. earlier this morning when crews arrived we asked them how they would clear it up and how long it would take. >> we'll try to get most of the brush off first and work our way back with the wood and try to clear upmost of the cars and it will take us a while to do this. >> the estimate we heard was two days. do you think it will be longer? >> much longer probably. >> a week maybe? >> hopefully we'll try to get it done by thursday. >> you can see back out here live, they have made progress. about an hour ago we couldn't see the silver sufficient off to the right. -- -- suv. it was covered with branchs and leaves and totally invisible from the street. they have cleared the brush but again, you don't hear the tree trimmer going because they're taking a break. one of the workers said that this bin is almost full of mulch and they're probably going to go through 3-4
9:04 am
truckloads of mulch and debris by the end of the day. a lot of work ahead but the good news is nobody was hurt. amazing when this tree came down, nobody was hurt. back to you guys. search crews starting to assemble nile canyon in fremont. >> they may go into the water to recover the body of an 18- year old woman who drove off the road into the creek during storms. >> live from niels canyon this morning to explain more -- -- niles. >> reporter: we just saw firefighters drive by here on niles canyon road. their swift water rescue team is out here and they're helping assess the situation. mrair planning on getting in the water today. we saw their boat but because of the water current level that may not happen. -- -- they're. firefighters are meeting here at 10:00 a.m. to see if it's safe to send divers into the water to conduct a recovery effort.
9:05 am
they're looking for a silver honda and the body of the driver. on saturday morning an 18-year old woman was driving on niles canyon when she lost control and went over the double yellow lines and hit another car. right now the sheriff's office doesn't know where along the creek the car or the driver is. it wasn't safe for divers to go into the creek yesterday because of the water current. it was too strong and the creek level was too high. that's what's measured this morning by the alameda water district. they say really their biggest risk today even though they're worried about the water current -- they're worried about the tree branches and debris that may be flowing in the creek. if there's a diver that's underneath the water, one of the branches just might knock them out. so they're really going to have to assess the situation and hopefully we will know more in the next hour. back to you. >> thank you janine. president trump begins his
9:06 am
first work week in office today with a busy schedule and aggressive agenda. lauren has more this morning from washington. >> reporter: president trump meeting with business leaders this morning at the white house reiterating his promise to cut taxes and regulations while repeating his campaign threat to impose a tax on u.s. companies that move manufacturing overseas yet sell their products domestically. >> we want to start making products again. we want to make them here. >> a busy week in the white house. in addition to this morning's meeting with business executives he's also sitting down with union leaders. meanwhile, the white house is preparing for the president's first visit by a foreign leader. britain's prime minister teresa may on friday. the senate is likely to confirm two top cabinet nominees, rex tillerson for secretary of state and mike pompeo as cia director. >> this was the largest audience to witness an
9:07 am
inauguration period. >> reporter: but one member of the president's inner circle coming under fire one day into the job. shawn spicer scolded reporters who rightfully noted this year's inauguration had significant smaller turn out than president obama's in 20009. a simple side by side comparison of photos showed the white house's claim is false. >> the press is going to fact check the press secretary. so don't use a fact unless you're 100% certain you have it nailed down. already this morning president trump has signed a memorandum that freezes hires for federal workers and also stated a ban on groups that perform abortions as options. he did s going to leave the pacific rim deal known as the trans pacific partnership.
9:08 am
>> joining us this morning, brie i don't know andrews, he looks like he's getting right to it. >> this guy by all accounts is a work aalcoholic and he's got a lot on his agenda and he made promises about the first 100 days to executive recorders and rolling back some things. we're going to i think see a flurry of activity. >> this morning, real quick sal, he met with business leaders. like lockheed martin and he threatened the border tax on them. would he follow through with that? >> well, part of a negotiation is that you threaten in a nice way and certain consequences will occur if you don't play ball. trump's an expert at that. so he brought in these executives and will continue to bring them in and make that kind of threat. >> over the weekend a lot of
9:09 am
people talked about the add ver ver ver israeli tone shawn spicer took to the media with the crowd size. what does this say about the way the administration is treating the press? >> i think he got off to a bad start with the media. they are going to apparently a media conference later today, maybe that begins the process of kind of taking down the rhetoric a bit. but it was this back and forth -- everybody has to just i think chill a little bit. >> was that shawn spicer or president trump? >> well, spicer is delivering the president's message so. >> i think what he's saying is was shawn told to read that statement? >> sure. >> it could have been trump wrote it. >> i don't know if he wrote it. but it's the attitude in there about this problem between the media and the president.
9:10 am
and frankly, as events stars start unfolding they're going to have less time to worry about the color of the curtains and which bust is in the oval office. there's much more important issues to address. frankly those of us in the media have to do a better job too. the issues have to be raised. nobody cares whether winston churchill's bust is in the oval office. we do care whether we have security internationally and taking care of business in the united states in this case it was dr. king. >> right. >> you remember the story came out that the bust had been removed. it hasn't. that's the kind of stuff where trump says you're doing that on purpose and people all the way around have to be more accurate. >> his argument is an obsession by the media to delegitimize the president. does he have a case? >> i think he does. the media continues to cover --
9:11 am
it's a balancing act -- but this idea that let's go out and cover the impeachment effort. really? there's been 400 efforts to impeach presidents every term. why is this becoming more important than anything else? it's because the country is split right down the middle and there's a lot of people who haven't gotten over the fact that the president is donald trump. i get it. but at a certain point he has to be allowed to govern and then we'll judge him on how he does. that's the important thing. >> his inaugural address -- american carnage littered like tombstones. that's a negative stone. do you expect it to change? >> i hope so. the inaugural was a visit to his campaign rhetoric. it had no soaring rhetoric, nothing that gave anybody real hope until really the final stanza and last few lines where he rose.
9:12 am
but much of that address i thought there were opportunities missed to talk about the promise of america. >> but he was taking to his base. >> right and he was talking to a lot of people who don't feel good about government. that's actually a lot of bernie sanders supporters and other people, they don't think government works for them and washington is the problem. >> is donald trump going to switch out of campaign mode and get into presidential mode? he is not campaigning anymore he is the president. he's got the job. >> somebody needs to keep reminding him mr. president, you are the president. . >> who has the power or the ear of the president to do that? contra costa? kelly an conway? ? >> his son-in-laws, yes. but the rudy giuliani and other
9:13 am
people need to keep working him and saying hey, it's okay, you got the job. another big story was the remarks in front of the cia. he was criticized for again bringing up the media. >> using that venue to say what he did in front of the wall. >> what are your thoughts on that? >> again, you would love to be a fly on the wall when they're discussing here's what you're going to say and here's the backdrop. all of that is decided before anybody speaks as you all know. so he went through to say to the cia i'm really your friend but it veered off again. so what we hope to see over time is he understands the venue he's in and has remarks appropriate to the venue and people. now, it's also true that presidents have trouble with the intelligence community. probably only george herbert bush would run the cia and have
9:14 am
this special relationship. everybody else has had issues with the intelligence coming out of the various agencies. >> thanks for joining us here. our question this morning is what do you want to see president trump do during his first 100 days in office? on twitter we see reject the dismantling of the affordable care act. 0. >> we have seen a couple of these twitter accounts resigning -- i'll just resign a couple. >> we're seeing your responses throughout the day. we'll share them here with you at 9:30. a sink hole that's rather large has opened on highway 13 southbound north of broadway terrace. you can see it here and they put a code down. they had to keep people off of it.

the seeds of the idea germinated. >> it made me think they should have the same things we do. they're the same except they live in a poorer country. >> reporter: but the students themselves paid for medical and dental check ups that most of them haven't had. >> it's unfair that we get such good lives and they don't. >> spring hill students tend to their own garden and thought maybe the students in india would want to grow their own food and flowers. the seed bank donated pacts of seed suitable for the climate in india. >> it's about getting kids and the community together and helping this movement of growing your own food along as best we can. >> with fundraising complete and donations gathered, half a dozen spring hill teachers and parents along with nishan travel to the school to deliver $2,000 so all 86 students can get check ups. they not only donated the seeds

9:47 am
we have heard that term and you like it to being a dog eat dog world. that's not the way it has to be. >> it's not. companies are spending millions of dollars on new campaigns for kindness. kleenex just did a big piece. people and major companies are showing kindness works in business and creates more revenues and makes more profit. >> if we can think on the individual level, let's say i'm looking for a job or a better job. how do you advise someone like me to interact with this world that is so impersonal -- the online resumes and a thousand people applying for this one spot, how can being nice set me apart? interestingly enough, the nice does win. as one would see when you're making calls and going to company interviews when you're the one who is practicing kindness and you're the one who is showing up as one who wants to be the nice person, you are
9:48 am
remembered and interestingly enough the focus is on that person -- you remember that person because they were nice. that wins. i say let's stop practicing random acts of keendness. let's prek practice acts of kindness. >> of course as a father i teach my children kindness all the time. i've never run my own company but i would go the other way. i feel like if you're tighter and you got the eye of the tiger you're going the succeed because you're running a company and you want to be successful for your employees too, are you throwing that out the door? because in relationships when a girl would say you're so kind -- well, it's just not going to work. that could work in business. you guys are so nice but you're not making me money. i feel like you could lose in
9:49 am
