7:05 am
>> good morning. president trump seemed sobered. all three of his main speech writers and all of his senior advisers had input on this address and the president ended up sounding more like a republican and the revolutionary he describes himself as. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. >> president trump walked in to a divided chamber of commerce and spoke with a softer tone to his hard-line campaign promises. >> think of the marvels we can achooev if we simply set free the dreams of our people. >> there was very little bombast, no attacks on the media or ramblings off script. it was a sprinkle of optimism. >> we share the dreams that fill our hearts, turn those hopes and those dreams into action. join me in dreaming big and bold and daring things for our country. >> a sharp contrast. >> mothers and children trapped in poverty.

7:07 am
haven't committed serious crime. in a private lunch with television anchors, president trump said the time is right as long as there's cooperation on both sides. he challenges republicans and democrats to replace obama's signature health care law. >> we should ensure that americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage and that we have a stable transition for americans currently enrolled in the health care exchanges. now, the speech was noticeably short on foreign policy, no mention of his plan as what to do with the troops serving in afghanistan and war zones like iraq. we're learning another thing thatting the plans will be delayed. >> delayed because they want to write out the good will from the speech as well? >> we're not saying that but we know there's some negotiation of who's staying on and some

7:10 am
7:11 am
but his governing and what he does is hard right favoring special interests over the working class, so let me give you a few quick examples. he talked last night about in a infrastructu infrastructure. we democrats offered a plan a month ago, we haven't heard a peep out of him. he was going to talk trade. he was going to label china a trade manipulator. he said it ten times. on day one. he backed off. he talked education touchingly about the need for medical research, his budget is slashing those to smithereens and most of all he said he'd clean up the swamp. s he cabinet is a swamp cabinet filled with millionaires and billionaires, views that are not akicab
7:12 am
amicable people. >> has he done it? >> action speaks louder than words. 's not calling us saying what do you think. he's not going down the middle. an hour after he gave his inaugural speech he signed an executive order that helped the banks and raised the cost of mortgages over $500 for new homeowners. that's what's going on and that's why he's having trouble his first 40 days and why he's going to keep having trouble. >> senator, you mentioned then infrastructure from the democrats. do you think there's any ground here with which you can work with the republicans on? >> well, he called for public/private partnerships there. if that means tax breaks, what he's talked about or some of his advisers anyway is that 82 cents on the dollar would go to financiers, which means very little is left for building roads, and it would require
7:13 am
tolls to pay back these lenders, private lenders all even the country, so we can't work with that. >> for the first time he seemed to give specifics to obamacare and his health care proposals. what did you make of that? >> i thought that the republican leaders in their hearts were hoping he was going to lay out a path. he hasn't. their party is divided on obamacare. i thought governor elba shir gave it. some republicans want that. but then the hard right says if you put any money in here, i won't do it. >> senator, there were audible groans when there was talk of the new office called v.o.i.c.e. what do you think of that new office? ? >> i think that new office is
7:14 am
ridiculous. everyone should be law abiding. all americans want to be part of the dream. everyone agrees with that. to put an office out there like that shows how anti-immigrant the president is. of course, we want to go after the criminal. we want to go after all criminals. >> the president started about his defense against jewish community centers. is did that satisfy you? >> i'm glad he said it, no problem there. he's got do it regularly when it happened, not just in one speech once a month. >> all right. >> i know. let him start on really doing something. >> thank you. let's go back to norah at the white house. she's with "face the nation" moderator john dickerson. norah? >> that's right, gayle. john, we all watched the speech last night and that was tell prompt ter trump. that wasn't the old twitter trump. what does that suggest about the white house going forward? >> this isn't just a speech by
7:15 am
the president. it's a speech by a number of people to go in a slightly different direction and limit and embrace the direction. he recognized that he has to change his tone a little bit, he has to do a lot more toward unity both symbolically. there was -- basically it was unity and symbolism, but that's still a big change for the presidency. he has to sep the constraints of the office a little more. his inaugural address was a real attempt to break out of the campaign mode. >> there has been a hard line on immigration, build the wall, ncrease border enforcement, and isil deportation. yesterday, perhaps a softening of that and creating a path way for immigrants. why? >> here's the difference. speech is nice but policy is what matters. what it appears that the
7:16 am
president is flirting with is the idea of some kind of legal status. that's break he said during the campaign and after which is if you want as an undouchlted immigrant to stay in the united states, go back home. the idea is stay, pay taxes, and not worry about being deported. the idea is that might be a basis for compromise because he was so strong on illegal immigrants. this is the kind of knicks going to china. if he wants to say it, he has to say it loud. not behind the scenes. >> the military commander in chief was in yemen. as a result, navy s.e.a.l. ryan owen died. he honored the widow karen owen. earlier the general said they lost ryan. again, he shifted last night. >> he did. the symbol lichl last night was not only a moment of patriotism and deep emotion, but it was the president taking on the
7:17 am
commander in chief role. but early in the day he was taking a step back from the commander in chief role. he made the call, it's his decision, the buck stops at his desk. the decision will he finally go that far with that specific raid. >> good to see you. thanks so much. i'm going to be heading over to the vice presidential ceremonial office. that's right over here by the steps and we're going to bring you an interview with vice president mike pence. that's in the next hour. for now i'll send it back to you in new york. >> thank you, norah. 300 homes and businesses damages after a violent system spawned tornados in central u.s. some of the hardest hit are outside chicago and southern missouri. at least 22 toernldss were reported in five states. michelle miller is outside ottawa, illinois, with the widespread damage. michelle, good morning. >> good morning. at least one of those tornados

7:34 am
president's speech and he joins us now from capitol hill. good morning, senator. >> good morning. >> let's start if we can with the president's comments on immigration. mr. trump said he saw the possibility of immigration reform as long as american jobs and security come first. you've been part of a bipartisan effort for immigration reform in past that did not work out. do you think this could be successful at this time now? >> i do. it's not going to be easy but i believe that. by the way, that's the way our immigration law should always be about. obviously number one ensuring people entering the united states whether permanently or as visitors or people who are not going to harm us and secondly it ee essential fi our country and our economy. how we do it is critical. it's a multi-step process. it begins with enforcing our laws so we can win the tense of the american people. the second step would be to modernize our system, make it less bureaucratic and more mi
7:35 am
merit-based but make it reasonable and responsible for those who have been here a long time, not criminals, who are in violation of the immigration laws but we should try to accommodate. i believe if we follow those steps in that order we can achieve a result that's god for the country. >> the president made it clear he intends to repeal and replace obamacare. in your state of florida you have the largest number of people on obamacare in the country. do your views reflect the challenges he reflects to make? >> i absolutely believe obamacare needs to be repealed. a lot of people i'm meeting with are truly uninsured. even though they're on obamacare, their deductibles are so high, they have to spend money they don't have before they can even begin to use the plan. that doesn't mean you throw the people out in the street or go to the system before 2010. i don't want to go back to that either. i want to replace it with a system that for the vast majority of people they're going to be able to access a health
7:36 am
system that's more affordable and achieve the things they want in a viable marketplace. >> did you get that from his outline last night? >> i think the difficult work is laying out exactly how we achieve that away from the system. but certainly the principles that we don't want to disrupt people that are on it now that we certainly don't want to go back to the old system because that wasn't working either, yes, i agree with the principles and they are guiding us, and it's what we've been talking about since 2014. i'll work hard to make sure many of those elements are a pat of our law as possible. >> senator, we spoke with your colleague chuck schumer earlier this morning and he said president trump's words and actions have not been consistent, he's done absolutely nothing to foster growth among the growing parties. is that true? >> it's in the eye of the beholder. he enters politics at a time of
7:37 am
extraordinary division. if you saw last night there was a moment after he spoke a number of members got up and walked out before he finished his speech. i don't do that stuff. other people have to speak for himself. there's something the president has done. you'll have to ask them about it. i do believe for the good of the country, we need to give him a chance to be successful. if we disagree with him, we'll take on those issues. i thought last night was a very presidential speech. i thought last night was the best speech. i've been watching him closely for two year. there's dmout about that. he did a very good job last night. that was a promising sign. >> the president called for a trillion dollar program on infrastructure. at the same time he called for significant tax cuts for businesses. are their votes in congress for an infrastructure spending program? >> it depends. if it's all taxpayer money, that's going to be very difficult for the reasons we
7:38 am
outlined. however as he discussed last night, he talked about a public-private partnership and if they're talking about leveraging private funds over a 5 year or ten-year period, it's very doable. but it's going to require us to allow the federal government with its limited resources to focus on things that it's in charge of doing and that is the national security of our country, infrastate structure that's necessary for our nation and a safety net of those who have fallen on hard times to stand up again. i believe, and the pretty didn't talk about this, i believe eventually we'll have to deal with sooner than later reforms to save social security and medicare. >> senator marco rubio. thanks for your time. >> thank you. there may have been uncovered a more disturbing issue. ahead the claims of harassment

it's wednesday, march 1st, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including president trump sending congress a strong message in a softer tone. norah is with vice president mike pence to talk about the president's speech and what happens next. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. the time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. >> it was noticeably different from the inaugural address. last night he referred to the renewal of the american spirit. >> the president seemed sober and ended up sounding more like a republican than the revolutionary he describes himself as. >> did you hear anything that
8:01 am
you liked in the speechsome. >> well, you see with donald trump the speefrps don't mean very much. >> the president in a very striking moment reassured a visibly heart broeking widow that the nation grieves with her. >> the symbolism last night was not only a moment of patriotism and deep emotion, but it was also a president taking on the commander in chief role. >> i thought last night was a very presidential speech. i thought it was the best speech i've seen him give in years. >> when he took to the podium were the president, vice president mike reince and speaker of the house paul ryan who immediately showed their commitment to fiscal responsible by buying the buy two, get one free combo, men wearing a blue suit with a blue tie. that's ridiculous. >> i noticed that, too, stephen colbert. i'm gayle king with anthony
8:02 am
mason and alex wagner. charlie is recovering and doing great. norah is in washington getting ready to speak with mike pence. in a cbs news poll this morning 71% of those watching the address felt that it was unifying. >> the president told congress the time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. the hour-long speech covered a wide range of policies. >> i will be asking congress to approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion invest mnlts in the united states. we should ensure that americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage and we have stable transition for americans currently enrolled in the health care exchanges. we're also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical islamic terrorism.
8:03 am
we will work with our allies including our friends and allies in the muslim world to extinguish this vial enemy from our planet. >> the emotional high point came when the president thanked karen owens, widow of navy s.e.a.l. ryan owens. he was killed in an anti-terror mission authorized by mr. trump. >> ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. thank you. >> the applause continued for more than 90 seconds. let's go now to norah with vice president mike pence in washington. norah, good morning again. >> good morning, gayle, and thank you so much. yes, we're here in the ceremonial office of the vice president f the united states. mr. vice president, thank you so much for having us. >> good morning, norah. >> we just show thad incredibly moving moment last night when
8:04 am
the president honored navy s.e.a.l. william ryan owens and his widow karen owens. how did that tribute come about? >> well, the president reached out to the family after ryan owe owens. it was of high intelligence. i was there when the president spoke with her at length. the president drove to dover air force base to be with her. i think he felt very strongly about acknowledging her courageous husband but just as much acknowledging a family because as you know, norah, those who serve in the military seven as families, are supported by families, and the tribute last night, the likes of which i've never seen. i was in the congress for 12 years. i really don't remember as
8:05 am
sustained and proper tribute and applause. >> well, both republicans and democrats for more than two minutes. she kept looking up almost to heaven. i know your wife was sitting right next to her. >> she did. and i have to tell you, i don't think there was a dry eye in the house to see her looking up expressing words of love for her husband. and afterward the president and i spent a little bit more time with her and reminded her that the congress represents the entire country and that the tribute that her husband and her family received was really how all the american people feel about him and feel about all those who serve. >> i know the president made a point last night of pointing out. he said that raid had gathered, quote, large amounts of vital intelligence. have you seen some of that intelligence? what does that help us with? >> we were briefed again yesterday by secretary mattis
8:06 am
giving us a summary of the intelligence that was gathered. this was a strike that was directed at obtaining information about the al qaeda operating out of yemen. we do believe -- we to believe it will lay a foundation for victories in the future, but it was -- i think it was altogether fitting that the president paid tribute to that courageous navy s.e.a.l., to that wonderful family, in the context of the speech where he put america first, made a commitment to rebuilding the military after years of cutbacks, and the support for that. i truly believe we'll be part of the bipartisan accomplishments that this congress can achieve. >> nbc has reported that there was no significant intelligence gathered from that raid is. that wrong? >> that is wrong. i can tell you that secretary mattis as recently as yesterday confirmed again to the administration that there was significant intelligence that
8:07 am
was gathered that will lead to american success and to the safety and security of the american people. >> let me ask you about immigration. you guys have taken a hard line on imgrarks build the wall, tougher enforcement. the president signaled yesterday in a meeting that he was open to a legal pathway for undocumented immigrants. are you on board with that as well? are you open to such a pathway? >> well, let me say that last night i thought was not only a great speech, but it was a great night for america. because what the american people saw was a president laying out the specifics of an agenda that he ran on and communicating both his strength and his heart in expressing that. and whether it be with repealing or replacing obamacare or whether it be with tax and the economy or immigration, i think the american people heard -- they really heard the president in full.
8:08 am
and last night he made it very clear that he intended to build a wall, to have the kind of internal enforcement that puts the safety of the american people first, that identifies the criminal element that's part of it. >> believe me, we have heard that. we have heard that. the question, though, was whether he is open to a pathway for the undocumented immigrants here or are you just not there yet? >> you know, i think as the president said in the campaign, we'll see. >> okay. >> we'll see. he gave that famous speech in arizona where he literally said, look, we've got to do first things first. we've got to secure our border. he said many times a nation without a border is not a nation and it's not secure. so we'll secure that border with a border wall. we have that enforcement already under way. our laws provide not only more border agents, more immigration and customs, these are all things the president has already put into motion and once we do that just like he said in arizona, that with regard to those remaining in this country, that we'll look at options.
8:09 am
we'll engage the congress. but i think the overall tone of the president's speech last night is -- frankly it's just the same as i see every day. president trump is someone who leads by collaboration. he brings people together. and last night he really challenged the congress to come together on behalf of the kun true and solve these intractable problems that we, frankly, have ignored for decades. >> i know you say this seems more like the trump you see every day is what the american people saw last night. let me ask you about the additional policies because i know the new executive order on the travel ban is coming out and cbs news has learned that iraqi citizens may not be included in the president's revised plan. is that the case, and why so? >> i think we're evaluating both the ninth circuit's decision and other considerations and in the days ahead we'll have a revised order that will come out. the president is just determined
8:10 am
to not only defend the first executive order in the courts which we continue to believe is fully within his purview and in his presidential authority but also to take that authority that is undisputed in the law within the executive order. we live in a very dangerous world. i was just in europe meeting with leaders of many of our allies. we all recognize the threat of terrorism in the world. and president trump is absolutely determined to do what we can in this moment to ensure the safety and security of the american people, put into place new vetting procedures and the revised executive order will be reflective of that. >> and will more countries be added to that? >> well, i don't want to -- i don't want to get ahead of the deliberation. i know that through a variety of agencies, they're putting the finishes touches on the executive order and it should be out in a few days. >> and last night's speech, did
8:11 am
that signal a change? it was different in tone from the inaugural address. did it signal a change? >> i just think there's something very special about a joint session of congress. there's a moment where the president has the opportunity to speak in a completely unfiltered way to people all across the country, and what i can tell people as someone who's worked with the president every day since the election, i've gotten to know him very well over the course of the campaign, that was all him. what we have in president trump is someone who has broad shoulder, who's a fater, who's willing to fight in what he believes in, but he's got a big heart. i think the american people saw that last night. and my hope is that members of congress in both parties will look at the agenda that the president laid out, work with this administration to ensure the security and the prosperity of the american people. >> let the legislating begin. >> that's right. >> that's right. all right. mr. vice president, thank you so much. >> thank you, norah. >> gayle, there you heard.
8:12 am
the vice president who welcomed us here into the ceremonial office about last night's speech. >> all right, norah. you hit all the notes. we were wondering here in the studio. nice job. one of president trump's proposals got a huge reaction from a panel of voters. ahead, we'll talk with frank luntz about republicans and

8:33 am
senior columnist and strategist frank lutts invited folks to take part in a group. they range from 25 to 65 years old. 11 in the group voted for donald trump in the election, nine voted for hillary clinton and one did not vote for either one of them. they all watched president trump's speech together and talked about their reactions. >> you saw what happened tonight. tell us what you thought was better. >> he was more rational. >> he was conciliatory, he acted presidential. so i think that's a very good first step. >> what else. >> i like the fact that he brought everyone together, democrats and republicans regarding veterans, taking care of veterans. that's not a political issue. regardless of what you think, these are people who served in the military, they're down on their luck financially. >> he did not address the problem with the v.a. the vm a. is not doing anything for the vets. >> we all want to see it change.
8:34 am
that was the point. there has to be a change and it's for both sides. >> i do believe he will take an action to change it. >> he went from the hate crimes, which i was concerned he would talk about, as he did, unity, and he went on how to try to come up with solutions. >> on the same hand that he talked about the hate crimes and the desecration of the jewish cemeteries which is horrible, he neglected to mention the desecration of the indian burial grounds with the pipeline. >> he delivered on his promises. he said, my job is to be the president of all americans. >> it's words. >> did he deliver that? did he deliver that tonight? >> yes, he did. >> what are we going to see tomorrow? that's what we should be watching for. up until now he hasn't said anything like this. he spoke in broad platitudes. who doesn't want their kids to
8:35 am
be healthy and safe. >> hold on, hold on. >> frank joins us from los angeles. the president for the most part is getting a lot of rave reviews including what the man picked up on in your focus group that he sounded presidential and looked presidential. what was the response from your group? >> yes. 16 out of 21 said that he exceeded expectations and only one person who spoke in that little clip felt that he fell short and the reason why is that he seemed to appeal universally to republicans and democrats, to treat the country as a whole rather than looking at individual groups. our trump people felt he kept his promises and hasn't backed down and our clinton people felt he is trying. he's making an effort to reach across the aisle. what's fascinating to me, they watched the democratic response as well and they were rather critical because they thought that was too partisan. one more thing, gayle. it's interesting that they always talk about what the president didn't say. even though the speech lasted
8:36 am
what, 45, 50 minutes? so often the american people are listening for what they don't here and that's what they complain about. >> frank, your focus group did something called a dial test during the speech. the red line indicates republican leaning voters and the green line indicates democratic leaning voters. let's look at when donald trump spoke of the $100 million infrastructure plan. >> i will be asking congress to produce legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in infrastructure of the united states financed through both finance and private capital creating millions of new jobs. this effort will be guided by two core principles. buy american and hire american. >> okay. frank, so there was a lot of action in the lines there. how did you read them and what did you make of that? >> so i asked them. that's exactly what they're
8:37 am
looking for. in fact, donald trump is at his best when he's focused economic populism. the infrastructure has significant support among republicans provided that it provides accountability and it has significant support among democrats provided that it supplies american jobs. so it works with both sides. and you saw those lines jump. that's exactly what the american people want to hear from him. >> the president also emphasized immigration and border security again last night, frank. let's watch how that played out on the dial test. >> at the same time my administration has answered the pleas of the american people for immigration enforcement and border security. by finally enforces our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions and billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. >> a much more divided response
8:38 am
there, frank. >> exactly. and it highlights the challenge that donald trump has, that on some of these issues such as building the wall, they're polarizing. 've though he had the chance, the principles behind immigration and some of the key issues, even the communication of principles, when they're talking -- when he's using lan fwaj from the campaign, democrats and clinton voters turned it down because it reminds them of what they didn't like about him. our country is still heavily polarized, heavily divided. donald trump took a huge step last night in bringing the country together, but it doesn't just happen in one speech. they want to see what happens next. >> he talked about obama. a lot of people find that polarizing. let's take a look at that. >> remember when you were told that you could keep your doctor and keep your plan, we now know that all of those promises have been totally broken. obamacare is collapsing and we
8:39 am
must act decisively to protect all americans. >> all right, frank. those lines very far apart. i know all of your group are california voters but you think it reflects the country. how so? first react with what you're seeing with these lines. >> it is polarized and the republicans responded favorably to what president trump said. what i found were the economic issues. the democrats were almost as high as the republicans and things like what happened in some of our major citieses, some of the hate crimes. there were even moments in the speech when democrats were more favorable toward donald trump than the republicans. that said it's still going to be difficult to get beyond the campaign. it's been five months since the election and the hostility toward democrats has not dissipated. they felt that this is the first time that he's presidential but several of them mentioned what is he going to tweet today, what
8:40 am
is he going to say tomorrow? he has changed the dynamic as we know it, gayle. the question is can he continue day after day. >> frank luntz, with know there will be a lot of polling in our future on that. thanks for your time. >> thank you. a legendary music producer says a bronx the question is can he continue firs

tommy mottola, welcome. you said broadway is a thousand times harder than the music business. why is that? >> there's so many moving parts and they're all so complicated. they're all on paper, it's one thing. but when you put it up on stage, truly the professionals have to take over and make this great idea work. stage them, make them move, make them speak, make them tie in and be complementary and so, you noe know, it's difficult to do it on stage. >> and do it over and over. >> i have to say that little boy is fantastic. i look the whole vibe, the whole genre. you said, know these people, know that life, know that life. >> i was born and raised in the bronx. it's very near to me. it's chads palma terri's story.

8:48 am
>> i think more than every people have an insatiable appetite for it than they ever have and they have more coming at them because they have digital but i also thinks it makes it much harder to nurture and really embrace the process of building the next global superstars. i think the economics don't allow it. >> listen. you discovered mariah, you guys had a high-profile marriage, a high-profile divorce, and she still is going strong. what are your thoughts about her today and singing today? >> i think mariah is one of the most talented people i have ever come across in my career, certainly as a songwriter and a singer. >> when she struggles, tommy, with a performance like she did on new year's eve and pretty famously, what goes through your mind? >> that can happen to anyone unfortunately technically. adele at the grammys stopped the whole show and took charge. it's important for art iftzs to know they have that power, the ability to say, stop, i'm going
