7:10 am
realistic. >> i believe the odds are very high we will keep the aca. >> reporter: in a prebuttal, democrats slammed the new budget. >> to increase defense by such a large amount and then cut the very programs that help middle class americans seems to me to be totally wrong and out of whack. >> reporter: this will be mr. trump's first visit to capitol hill, since the hacking investigations to examine whether associates colluded with russian officials during the campaign. >> what i've been told by many folks is that there is nothing there. >> reporter: republican devin nunes who chairs the committee has downplayed the probe. adam schiff said that's unsure. >> i don't believe we should draw conclusions. >> so you believe intelligence
7:11 am
are know more than they're telling you right now? >> i don't think anybody should prejudge at this point whether there were contacts between the trump campaign and russia either directly hour indirectly. >> dozens of house democrats boycotted the president's inaugural address. but they will be in their seats tonight. and they will be showing their displeasure to some of this policies by bringing that which has been hurt by his proposals on immigration, gun control and health care. on an interview that aired this morning on fox news, president trump was asked to grade himself in his first month in office. >> in terms of achievement, i'd give myself an "a." because i think i've done great things but i don't think -- i and my people, i don't think we've explained it well enough to the american public. i think i'd give myself an "a" in what i've terms.
7:12 am
>> "face the nation" moderator john dickinson is with us here. john, he says he gives hymes a c plus. >> when he says a c-plus on messaging, he sounds just like every other president. they come into office and they say why aren't people hearing what i'm doing. that could actually be a trap for presidents because that leads to those long lists of achievements. that's fine if you want to spend your time doing that. but he has other things he can use this big moment for. one is making the argument for his budget. for the health care changes that he's bringing in. to use the moment to frame what's coming. because what's coming will be complicated, as the president now says about health care. it turns out it'scomblik complicated thing to do. everybody that's been wrestling with it knows that. he needs to do that, secondarily, he needs to give lawmakers some cover.
7:13 am
some line of attack that they can use when they're facing these town halls or facing political pressure. he needs to help them. so if he spends time on his own achievements that's not necessarily giving them something that they can use in their political debate. >> and, john, on those achievements, many of them have been executive actions and orders. the really big thing that affect every single american. the ones that are legislative, that come out of the congress that he's addressing tonight. will he give guidance on what exactly he plans to do on tax reform, infrastructure, the replacement of health care? any indication he'll go into any detail? >> you've put your finger on where we are in the history of the trump administration. he's done the easy stuff. now, obviously, it wasn't easy, but easy relative to policy you that have to get through the whole legislative process which is hard and complicated. he will give direction. and a good speech will give emotional power and direction to those issues you talked about. but specificity is not
7:14 am
necessarily the president's friend or anybody's friend. if you nail him down in the specifics. so you want to create an energy so that tomorrow if people are talking about the speech they can say, wow, he really wants to fix our roads but not necessarily going to say he's going to fix this many roads or this many bridges and so forth. because congress needs a lot of flexibility because he's trying to do a lot. and the budget is, you know, the numbers are pretty brutal in terms of definite silt and defi. >> specifically, john, obamacare seems to stand in the way. and edge the president admitted nobody knew health care could be so complicated. where does that stand at this point? >> well, it's complicated. everybody knew he'd been working on it, and basically, he's going to have to become the field general who argues for whatever changes they decide to make. but he's made big promises that everybody will be covered. that the coverage will be
7:15 am
better. that people will be able to pick their doctors. it's going to keep being complicated. >> we'll see you tonight, john, john will join scott pelley, sand me and it starts at 9:00 p.m., 8:00 central. and tomorrow we'll there with the vice president in the ceremonial office that's tomorrow. sean spicer said the pentagon is conducting a three-pronged review into the last month's raid in yemen. navy s.e.a.l. ryan owens was killed in the mission. others were wounded and u.s. aircraft was lots. general joseph votel commander of the command tells our david mart than preparation for the raid. >> some people would call it
7:16 am
success, some people called it a failure. what would you call it? >> again, the object was to go in and collect intelligence, we accomplished that. from that perspective, it was successful. i certainly understand how the family would look at this in a different light. >> owens' father is demanding answers. he declined to meet president trump earlier this month when his son's body was returned to the u.s. the fbi is investigating a new wave of threats against jewish institutions around the country. at least 29 jewish community centers and schools in 17 different states received bomb threats yesterday. nearly 100 incidents since the beginning of the year have targeted 80 locations in 33 states. in canada, too. jeff pegues shows us the effort to find out who is behind all of the threats. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. more threatening calls on monday, and it appears more leads for investigators. cbs news has learned that the fbi is looking into whether hacked communication devices are being used to make the calls which once again terrorized
7:17 am
jewish facilities from coast to coast. >> reporter: threatening calls to jewish community centers in california, washington, arizona and nevada, capped off the latest wave of intimidation. the anti-defamation league regional office in san francisco received a call. and earlier on monday, threat for students at the jewish day school outside of ft. lauderdale, florida, to evacuate. >> i was scared and afraid. it was like nervousness. >> reporter: parents raced to the school to pick up their kids. >> we were very scared. i got the phone call and came right away. >> reporter: a u.s. official tells cbs news the calls appear to be coordinated and some may be coming in from overseas. this voice of a recording of a telephone threat made on january 18th appears to be altered. >> i think i told you enough.
7:18 am
i must go. >> reporter: similar threatening calls were made across more than a dozen states on monday. rattling parents and students throughout the jewish community. >> this is my third evacuation. you start getting used to it. you don't want to get used to it, but you start getting used to it. >> reporter: the white house responded to the concerns over the threat at recent at jewish assessment tears. >> the president continues to condemn these and any form of anti-semitic acts in the strongest terms. >> all of the locations and day schools received the all-clear from law enforcement. still no arrests have been made in connection with these waves of threats. norah. an investigation is underway to find out why a tour bus crashed into oncoming traffic in southern california. one person died and more than two dozen people were hurt. the bus crashed head on into two cars. 27 people were taken to the hospital. two people were taken to the hospital after severe turbulence

he gave a statement to "the new york times" denying commits any harassment at google and said he left on his own. what do you make of uber's decision to let go of him? >> i have to say it's very uncommon for a swift and decisive action to be taken at the same time. they fired him immediately which suggests there's more to the story. still insiders say departure from google is one of the worst kept secrets around. he's a great talent that a lot of people wanted. so it's just unclear why they acted in the way that at the did so decisively, maybe to send a message within the company. >> what can you tell us about tavis callen who is phone for the company. >> so there's a leaked audio of the meeting that they had for

♪ it is tuesday, february 28th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including white house budget director mick mulvaney. what he once said would make him the most hated man in washington. we'll ask him why the president's proposed budget cuts are necessary. but first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the plane that crashed into this home here in riverside, california, was carrying five people. all of them on their way back home. >> a record-low approval rating. he plans to use his address tonight to refocus his administration. >> republicans are going to be looking for some concrete details from the president on the way forward on obamacare.
8:01 am
>> he needs to give those lawmakers some cover. he needs to help them. so, if he spends time with his own achievements, that's not necessarily giving them something to use in their political debate. >> spacex has plans to launch from 39-a. >> i was interested until i saw the picture. the academy has apologized to everyone involved. meanwhile, folks in hollywood around the world trying to make the sense of it. >> weirdest thing, look at nicole kidman applauding in this video.

8:02 am
kind of funny. i never noticed how she clapped. >> that's a seal clap, right? >> i never noticed. i'm norah o'donnell with andy mason and gayle king. president trump will give the most important policy speech yet for his new administration. the white house said the president will highlight the accomplishments from the past month specifically through his executive actions. >> the president will hope to measure up to the first addresses of his predecessors. alex, on how other presidents took on that challenge. alex good morning. >> tonight, the president's speech to the joint session of congress is not technically a state of the union because, of course, president trump has been in office for a little only over a month. traditionally this evening, the president outlines his priorities. and by virtue of that, congress finds out what its priorities may be in the coming days an nights ahead. >> i'm here tonight to ask you
8:03 am
to join me in making it our plan. together we can embark on this road. >> reporter: by custom, an olive branch is extended across the aisle. >> tonight, i challenge and invite congress to work with me. >> reporter: but much of the speech will focus on the president's marching orders. >> tonight, i present to you a comprehensive plan. >> energy, health care and education. >> reporter: while the president lays out his agenda, his audience is responsible for translating those words into actual legislation. and that depends largely on the makeup of congress. like presidents clinton, george w. bush and obama, president trump holds a majority in both houses upon approval. >> our confidence level past the president's approval rating was fairly high at that point. >> reporter: president obama's speechwriter when he first addressed congress in 2009. >> republicans had expressed interest in at least talking to us. make working with us on certain
8:04 am
legislative priority. >> reporter: though republicans didn't ultimately supported president trump's agenda -- >> you look at the mess he's got over there. >> reporter: he said the president should approach a less hostile attempt towards democrats. >> in order to, you need to reach out to democrats. >> it was a disaster. >> reporter: president trump's priorities are broadly at odds with those of the democrats. including overturning obamacare, building a border wall and reforming the tax code. tonight, both congress and the american people, will be looking for specifics. >> the bush white house, we set out a detailed tax plan. >> reporter: michael gerson was the head speechwriter for george h.w. bush he said that white house will be working closely with congress for months before the first address. >> i think policy preparation makes a big difference. >> where in your estimate six adonald trump in terms of
8:05 am
preparedness and coordination? >> i think donald trump is well behind in this budget process. he has to note budget policy choices. there's no way around it. you can't have everything. and this peaspeech is going to e to determine what the choices are. >> gerson said the groundwork resulted in the bush tax cuts being passed for a few months and they, of course, were law of the land for nearly nine years. at the same time, he said president trump is someone who enjoys speaking to a crowd. and half of the audience will be cheering for him. details of america's first budget are still being negotiated. white house officials are planning a 10% increase in defense spending equal to $54 billion. at the same time, they're calling for $54 billion in cuts to domestic programs like the environmental protection agency. the plan also reduces foreign aid, office of management and budget director mick mulvaney who is putting together the budget said it, quote,
8:06 am
eliminates programs that simply don't work. >> mick mulvaney was a republican congressman from south carolina when the president appointed him budget director. he joins us from the white house. good morning, director. thank you for being here. >> good morning. thanks for having us. >> will a budget that has no entitlement cuts and does not balance the budget ever pass a republican house or senate? >> keep in mind, in all fairness, it's too early to ask that question. this was never intended to be a full bulgts budget. this is what we call a budget blueprint. the reason the press isn't familiar with it ordinarily in an administration you wouldn't see the budget until we were much farther along, because of the delay in confirmation, and obstruction the senate, we decided to come out and say here's where we are. it's simply part of giving the top line spending numbers for the year.
8:07 am
so, it's a fair question that you ask, it's just not the right time to ask it. >> you said this would be a true america first budget. what exactly does that mean? >> it mean what is we did, we went in and talked to the president about his policies. we looked at his speeches what he believed, what he told people when he was running for office. we took those policies and turned them into numbers. what you see is increase in defense, increase in border security. increase enforcing laws that are on the book. so, what we did was take his policies turn it into a budget and that's what you've got. you have an america first candidate, you have a america first budget. >> what about domestic programs mr. mulvaney? >> some of them will actually be increased. for example, the president spoke regularly about spending more money on taking care of veterans. more money on immigration enforcement. you'll see increases there and decreases in other areas. why? because at the same time, the
8:08 am
president wanted to not impact the deficit negatively. he doesn't want to add to next year's deficit which is already going to be almost $500 billion. his charge to me was do what i said i would do, but don't impact the deficit. >> you said you're about to find out what it's like to be the most hated man in washington. i assume that mean because of the cuts forthcoming. where are those cuts coming from? >> that's part of the negotiation so far the next two weeks. keep in mind where we are. this is the beginning of the bulg budget process, yesterday, we sent the top lines to all the agencies. last year, you got $100. this year, you're getting $90. omb has ideas to make the reductions. >> where are you looking, director? where are you proposing those cuts come from? you must have some idea? >> we look at everything. we know the agencies. that's what the professionals at omb do, people go line by line
8:09 am
through all of the programs say this is effective that one is not. what do you think? can we take cuts here? >> congressman, i know you know this because you have served in congress. but when you look at the budget as a pie chart, more than half of it is what is called mandatory spending right, and most of that is entitlement. and then discretionary spending. so the nondiscretionary is a small chunk. if you make increases you'll have to cut it back. when will we know from the white house about what you're cutting? >> march 16th is the day we announced we would go to congress and say here is our final budget blueprint and have details on the specific programs we intend to reduce. >> beautiful, mick mulvaney, thanks for being here. and gayle and i will be with scott pelley and the rest of the political team for the draeaddr

8:18 am
this before, a bipartisan approach to working together. people are okay with ideas of compromise and collaboration. if you look at the success we've had policywise in education, health care and economy spaces, energy, and a whole bunch of others, they've all been things done on a bipartisan basis. >> it is interesting. a republican governor in what is considered a democratic state. >> as my mother the democrat always pointed out to me. >> that is number one for me, because that's where my wife is from. anyway, what i was surprised to see in the list is north dakota in the top five. and a huge influx of wruyoung people there. >> well, two things. there's energy development there. the fracking, enormous gains in income in a short period of time. so, that's a little bit transitional. maybe that comes -- maybe that fades, maybe it goes. but the government does a lot of good things in terms of citizen
