8:16 am
going to come in, and press investigations, in the background of this, the molar investigation. as a result of all of that, that will change very much the dynamic in washington dc, and where the president stands in terms of negotiations, the president is trying to get ahead of that, on the offensive, on his return from florida. he has lost momentum as the shutdown continues. >> every time we have had a shutdown, we say that, because this has happened before, it is the blame game that goes around, and, he said he would take the blame, and the democrats were saying, go ahead. i think we are seeing -- once this starts to affect so many people -- right now you have employees that are not receiving paychecks, until january 11, there is time right now. i don't want to say we are in a honeymoon. but we have not seen it the whole affects that this is having on the average worker, how will that change when their paychecks are not coming in? you talk about the coast guard, the national parks, the food stamps program -- what are the changes? >> what you see so far, this is

8:18 am
discussion with the economy? the molar investigation? the migrant children that are dealing with this issue, where do the storylines and issues fall, with the government shutdown? >> well, you have the immigration and security issue in the wake of the tragedy, with the police officer, and all of this -- the white house is trying to juggle this and pay attention to immigration and security, but at the same time move forward on campaign promises and get a dynamic in congress that has been changing. one of the issues the white house has had is the freedom caucus, there is not one freedom caucus, but for, as a result they have not been able to hold onto that deal and hold onto that group as we have moved into december. as we enter into january, yet a state of the union, and you're the president going to switzerland. you have a dynamic that is going to change, in terms of
8:19 am
where the white house is going to be, in the midst of staff changes, obviously, the secretary of defense, james mattis is leaving, these policy issues . they are straining the white house. the president is paying close attention to what is happening around the shutdown, and not with all the other balls in the air. there's a difficulty of management and the presidency which is why the chief of staff will be critical. >> we are out of time, but i want as quickly, who comes out to looking better at the end of this? democrats are the white house? >> the democrats can deliver a deal in 5-6 days, they will come out ahead. the resident has lost momentum, and he will try to capture it within the next few days. >> we appreciate you watching this with us. >> thank you for having me. let's go over to rosemary orozco with a check of our temperatures, if you are looking out your window and saying -- it is called. you're not alone.
