7:10 am
the it will pp would have said up a free trade zone with 11 other nations, eliminated tariffs and regulated. the concept that working together would help set global trade standards and prevent china from writing the rules of the road. but whether trump claimed it hurt american workers. and yesterday, spokesman sean spicer said this is symbolic of the president's deal that he can get a better deal negotiating one-on-one with other countries instead of as a block. but free trade senators like john mccain said this gives china an opening to dominate here. and it also puts allies like japan in an awkward spot. norah, the white house did say while the u.s. government doesn't have a free trade deal with japan there may be more to come. >> interesting union leaders met with trump yesterday said that the support that trump is

to yesterday, due to a high-profile republican holdup. >> reporter: the vote for tillerson fell straight down party lines. >> yes. >> yes. >> reporter: fellow republican marco rubio said he was setting this aside out of deference for the president. >> my concern is that mr. tillerson would be an advocate for and pursue deal making at the expense of traditional alliances and at the expense of human rights and democracy. >> reporter: rubio's concerns stem from tillerson's answers about russia a country where he has done extensive business as the ceo of exxonmobil. >> let me ask you a question is vladimir putin a war criminal? >> i would not use that term. >> reporter: a diplomat to guide him, not a businessman. >> american leadership on the world stage is not as simple as

7:15 am
this? because you're a russian expert. >> well, i told him basically -- >> with your credibility, it says to him, you got it wrong about russia. >> i told him the same thing that i said in the senate hearing introducing rex tillerson for his nomination hearing. i said, your administration is going to have to thread the needle and figure out how, on the one hand, to push back against putin's aggressiveness and meddling and interventionism. and at the same time, stop a continuing downward spiral in the u.s.-russian relationship that is potentially quite dangerous. but they've got do both sides of it they've got to thread the need. >> what does that mean, thread the needle? >> you got to figure out a policy that does both. you can't just be accommodating and look for deals with russia. you also have to be willing to push back against putin. because he is a guy who -- he
