>> only fu it is tuesday, august 1st, 2017. welcome to "cbs this morning." the new white house chief of staff forces out the new communications director. anthony scaramucci's sudden removal is just one sign that john kelly is taking charge inside the white house. >> and president trump crafted his first inaccurate statement about his meeting with the russian lawyer. why this could draw scrutiny from special council robert mueller. a new princess diana documentary uses tapes to expose sbi ma intimate details of her life. and the nasa control room
7:01 am
that launched a man to the move is falling apart. now the space agency is asking you to help save it. >> but we begin with today's eye opener. your world in 90 seconds. >> every reporter in town is mourning over anthony scaramucci because he's a one in a million character. you can't make him up. >> scaramucci ousted after just ten days. >> the president certainly felt that his comments were inappropriate for a person in that position and he didn't want to burden general kelly. >> kelly in and scaramucci out is nothing but good for this white house and hopefully he will tame some of the crazies. >> the washington post that president trump dictated a statement about a misleading meeting with a russian lawyer. >> sanctions on venezuela. >> l.a. has struck gold. >> the olympics will return to

7:03 am
with him for a week and left us with just memories and weird moves. it's like hey, scaramucci. welcome to "cbs this morning." norah president trump's new chief of staff needed less than a day to show his authority. retired john kelly told scaramucci to get out. >> the move indicates the former homeland security secretary has the president's go ahead to take command of a chaotic white house staff. a photo shows anthony scaramucci in the oval office yesterday
7:04 am
morning just hours before he was asked to leave. major garrett is at the white house with the sudden shakeup. >> reporter: that makes scaramucci the shortest tenured communications director in the history of the white house. and with two resignations and one firing in his wake he's also the most disruptive. >> we just swore in general kelly. he will do a spectacular job, i have no doubt. >> reporter: the first big decision from the new chief of staff, john kelly, kissing hot headed anthony scaramucci good-bye just days after his dramatic arrival. he felt it was best to give john kelly a clean slate the white house said in a terse statement. his tirade demeaned chief of staff reince priebus and steve bannon. he tried to make amends with jared kushner.
7:05 am
an incredible act of self-imlation he could never recover from. >> the president felt the comments were inappropriate for a person in that position and he didn't want to burden general kelly also with that line of succession. >> reporter: scaramucci the third communications director in six months was escorted out of the white house monday afternoon leaving many of the president's aides in shock. priebus resigned days after his arrival. >> if you're going to keep leaking i'm going to fire everybody. >> reporter: scaramucci arrived threatening to boot out disloyal leakers. >> i want to congratulate you on doing a fantastic job and we look forward to an even better job as a chief of staff. >> reporter: the president has given general kelly full
7:06 am
authority in the west wing. all staff are said now to report to kelly. on instagram ivanka trump posted this picture saying she looked forward to working alongside the general. names mentioned as possible scaramucci successors include special assistant to the president hope hicks, kellyanne conway and penn. >> thanks. president trump himself dictated donald trump jr.'s first explanation of his campaign meeting with the russian lawyer. trump jr.'s statement was misleading telling only part of the story. the president reportedly crafted his son comment aboard air force one returning home from a summit in europe. >> reporter: good morning. the revelation of the president's involvement is likely to draw inkroesed
7:07 am
scrutiny by investigators digging into whether the trump campaign conspired with the russians during the election. the president's own personal attorney denied that mr. trump had anything to do with the statement acknowledging the meeting. >> it was such a nothing. i literally wouldn't have remembered the meeting. >> reporter: when donald trump jr. met with the russian last year he believed she had dirt on hillary clinton but that wasn't his original explanation. >> a story about russian adoption and how we could possibly help and really that's where we shut it down. >> reporter: his initial public statement came directly from the president aboard air force one flying home from the g-20 summit in germany on july 8th, president trump personally dictated a response for his son that was given to the new york times. in it the statement explained that there was a short introductory meeting about the adoption of russian children and that he was not told the name of the person i would be meeting
7:08 am
with. and that it was not a campaign issue at the time. one of trump's attorneys tried to shield the president. >> the president was coming back from the g-20 as this was going on as you know, so my understanding is that very clearly that this was donald trump jr. and his lawyers, the president was not involved in that. >> the president was not -- did not draft the response. the response came from donald trump jr. >> reporter: on july 11th donald trump jr. released personal e-mails which revealed russian government attempts to help his father win the election. two days later the president characterized the meeting as fair game. >> it lasted for a very short period and nothing came of the meeting. and i think it's a meeting that most people in politics probably would have taken. >> reporter: donald trump jr.'s attorney did not respond to cbs news request for a comment but the president's attorney told cbs news last night that the washington post story is and
7:09 am
these are his words, of no consequence and he said the characterizations are misinformed, inaccurate and not pertinent. >> thanks, jeff. dan has spent years working on the hill and at the white house. he was a senior advisor in the 2012 presidential campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> can you imagine, what are the implications if in fact the president in a sense wrote the initial statement? >> it sounds like it's not a legal issue that he's shaping a statement that's a pr document. it's problematic but it's not a legal issue. i think what many will wonder and potentially many investigators like bob mueller wonders is if he's so loose with what he will say and so directly involved with a communications document, does that translate also over to what he will be or has done in terms of communications with
7:10 am
investigators? so that's where the questions i think will come up. >> one of the questions everybody has always been asking, who can say no to the president? do we now have somebody who will say no to the president? >> i think we do and the question is will the president listen? i think it relates to your previous question. john kelly is a master of discipline and organization. he will bring discipline or at least try to bring discipline to this white house and it sounds like that is the agreement he got from president trump. that he is in charge. there will be a formal chain of command. this whole term walking privileges where ten, 15 members of the senior staff can walk in and talk to the president. that's over. if someone wants to have a conversation with the president that all has to be coordinated through the chief of staff. by the way, we talk about that now like it's a foreign concept. it's the way it's always been done. it's what's we've experienced in the last six months has been an
7:11 am
aberration. trump has a rolodex of relationships, some of them family and some of them friends all over the place that he's constantly consulting with. if the president's children want to have a conversation with the president outside of the white house, how does kelly control that? i think that gets complicated. how does the president -- how does the chief of staff say to the president, mr. president, you can't weigh in on your son's statement on a legal matter. >> right. and when you get to what the president's actually trying to get done legislatively, does the fact that john kelly, while he has this distinguished national security career doesn't have legislative experience hurt the president in some way? >> you need two inputs. you need basic organization and discipline so over the last couple of days the president was attacking mitch mcconnell on
7:12 am
twitter. baiting mitch mcconnell to move forward with health care. so if you want a successful strategy you don't go after the senate majority leader of your own party, no less. so if kelly can reign in that that will help a lot mpl. but you also need people around the president with serious policy chops. but i think kelly can recruit that. i think kelly brings organization and discipline if they can recruit policy chops and the organizational holds meaning the president listens to kelly. >> a leading republican says congress is too divided to keep working on health care legislation. utah senator told the news agency the senate remains far apart and he and other senior gop leaders will take that message to the president. but senate democratic leader chuck schumer says ten
7:13 am
republican colleagues have told him they want to push forward with a bipartisan solution. on twitter president trump seemed to target an obamacare measure that keeps low deductibles and copays. he tweeted why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies? analysts say if insureds lose low income subsidies they're likely to raise premiums. video appears to show security officials detaining the men overnight during raids at their homes. both denounced sunday's election and called for new protests. the vote could grant the president nearly unchecked power. the escalating political crisis in venezuela. >> reporter: little else is known right now about the where abouts of both men previously
7:14 am
jailed for speaking out against the regime. their arrests do confirm the fears of the opposition here and many in the international community who believe that the president would use this weekend's vote to rewrite the constitution as a pretext to jails and to otherwise silence the opposition. this is certainly only to inflame tensions in the streets where clashes have happened almost daily between anti government protesters and the national police. more than 100 people have been killed since april. yesterday we spoke with another outspoken critic and a member of venezuela's congress who is also on the list. >> the president said he would have your jail cell ready to go after the vote. are you concerned? >> reporter: well, of course no one wants to be jailed but i'm more concerned about the future of my country and more concerned about the results of the struggle. >> reporter: we checked with him this morning. he has not been detained.
7:15 am
now the president is also once again thumbing his nose in particular at the trump administration which slapped sanctions on him yesterday. he said those would do nothing to stop him. charlie? >> thank you. business owners in north carolina's outer banks are suing the construction company that caused a massive power outage. tens of thousands of people forced to evacuate dug during the height of the summer season. businesses say they're losing thousands of dollars a day. crews damaged the power lines thursday while working to replace a major bridge. the mistake outed power to the islands. we're on pea island with what is being done to restore power. >> reporter: good morning. just to give you an idea just how fast crews are working, take a look at these poles. you can see seven of the poles
7:16 am
set up within the last 24 hours so the new transmission line that will supply power to the affected areas all along while construction workers are working to repair that last damaged cable underground. north carolina governor toured the island on monday including the construction site where crews are scrambling to fix a damaged underground transmission line. >> this company made a mistake and cut these cables and it is time to get it fixed. >> reporter: they've been ferrying massive generators to help power homes and businesses for as many as 6,000 people. since thursday, nearly 50,000 visitors have been forced to evacuate during the island's busy summer vacation months. police are turning away new visitors until power is restored. >> when the population leaves here, the economy is essentially gone and shut down. >> reporter: in a class action lawsuit filed against the
7:17 am
construction company responsible for the blackout local business owners say they have suffered thousands of dollars in losses. they claimed they could save the state $60 million by using construction meths and an accelerated schedule. >> debra says it's cost her surf shop up to $7,000 a day. >> that money we need to get through the winter down here and we just don't have it. >> reporter: they hope they can eventually be reimbursed. >> we don't know what the legal landscape is at the moment but what people are concentrated on is getting things on and up and working as soon as we possibly can. >> reporter: governor cooper declared a state of emergency last thursday. that means that relief funds could be made available to local businesses here. meantime we reached out to the

it's tuesday, august 1st, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, anthony scaramucci's sudden firing shakes up the white house again. major garrett looks at the plans of new chief of staff john kelly. plus, china embraces the shared economy. why they're investing in sharing. john kelly told white house communication director anthony scaramucci to get out. >> ten days on the job. that makes scaramucci the shortest tenured communications director in the history of the white house. >> i think we have someone that can say no to the president.
8:01 am
the question is will the president listen. >> likely to involve scrutiny digging into whether the president conspired with the russians in the election. >> this is certain to only inflame tensions. >> a state of emergency last thursday. that means that relief funds could be made available to local businesses here. >> the summer olympics are returning to the united states for the first time since 1996. city officials announced yesterday the 2028 games will be held in los angeles. >> you know the rumba, the company that makes them says that rumb as have the capability to map out your home while they clean it. i don't know how rumba could do this. they can't be doing this alone. they must have someone on the inside. >> this morning's eye opener at
8:02 am
8:00 is presented by toyota. >> i'm charlie rose. gayle and norah are off. president trump's new communications director did not last long. scaramucci appointed ten days ago was ousted yesterday by the president's new chief of staff. >> retired marine general john kelly has the job of restoring order in the white house. in january at his confirmation to be homeland security secretary kelly talked about how he likes to run an organization. >> i've never had a problem speaking truth to power and i firmly believe that those in power deserve true candor in my recommendations. >> major garrett is at the white house. is this how kelly plans to run the white house? >> reporter: it is and i will tell you, i'll get to some of the mechanics in a minute but one of the most important characteristics general kelly brings to this job is that he
8:03 am
can walk into a room and own the room. his physical bearing, his sense of self-confidence, his military discipline, why does this matter? because for president trump that ability matters almost more than anything else to walk into a room and own it like the president believes he does. so with that bearing, the president hopes general kelly will impose discipline, create focus and make meetings on process the ones that actually matter and eliminate the ongoing process here in the white house of secondary or third level meetings actually getting back to the president and bringing a process to a head. what kelly wants to do is create the agenda and the process that amplify the president's strength and minimize his weaknesses. >> can we expect the general to be cleaning house here and how secure is steve bannon who was attacked by anthony scaramucci in that new yorker piece? >> reporter: well, mooch is out. steve bannon is still here so that's one indication that general kelly wants to use a military phrase, unit cohesion, people working on the same page.
8:04 am
steve bannon has for one example been pushing a much higher tax income rate for a wealthy and tax reform. the white house doesn't support that so on policy he lost that one but that ebbs and flows in the white house. no sense anyone in the senior position is in jeopardy, at least not right now. >> was general kelly the first choice among people advising the president? >> reporter: i believe he was the first choice willing to take the job and had those characteristics the president wanted. will you take the job, do you have what it takes and am i willing and ready to get rid of reince priebus? all these came together to bring kelly where he is now. >> had general kelly refused the job earlier? >> reporter: not that i'm aware of, but the president was looking for people who could at the right moment take this job and he found kelly and it's important to point out on this, when the first travel ban was put together, that process from kelly's point of view, the department of homeland security was a disaster. he gave his objections directly to the president. the second process, which kelly
8:05 am
ran was much more organized and disciplined. that's an example of kelly's relationship with this president. >> thanks. anthony scaramucci's firing is the latest shakeup for a white house that's had big changes in its first six months. at least seven administration officials have left since inauguration day. michael flynn was asked to resign because he misled the vice president about conversations with russia's u.s. ambassador. in may the president's first communications director stepped down. that opened the way for scaramucci to be hired two months later. >> his appointment led press secretary sean spicer to resign and chief of staff reince priebus quit one week later. the president has fired some non-white house staff including james comey. a chicago man accused of botching the team's chance of

8:15 am
what goes through your mind? >> combination of frustration, anger, resentment. this is not appropriate. this is where our generation made history. this is where apollo fulfilled the challenge issued by president kennedy. >> reporter: is the condition of this room an insult to everybody in that period to make history? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: with nasa's slashed budget the agency's priority is the future of space travel, not preserving its past. they've launched a $5 million fund raising campaign to restore this room to its 1960s glory. >> it's important for world history. >> reporter: william harris detailed for us how this iconic part of nasa's past will have a brighter future. >> all the consoles have to be removed, restored, buttons replaced.
8:16 am
all of this is really old. our commitment is to restore it back to the way it was. >> he wants to experience one more thrill in this room, to see it restored and he's bringing his legendary can do spirit to the project. >> this is a room that will now represent the best america had to offer. failure is not an option. >> reporter: not an option but there is a deadline. they have till next summer to come up with the $5 million to finish these repairs before the 50th anniversary of apollo's moon landing in july 2019. >> to hear those guys remind me of what hemmingway once said. courage is grace under pressure and these guys seem to have it. >> and it's remarkable that i think most persons when they see this story will want to contribute or help in some way because it really is part of our history. >> successful part of our history. >> amazing. thanks for that story, mark.

8:22 am
companies which explains the sea of bikes on the street and the massive piles of pedals growing in china's major cities. the sharing economy brings convenience, this woman said, but this is too much. like a friend who doesn't quite know when to stop, china might be oversharing. you can share a basketball for 15 cents a an hour. need to charge your phone? there's a power bank share for that and then came the shared beds which many called napping pods to make it sound slightly less gross. shortly after they opened they were shut down for not meeting fire code. >> but the moment the sharing economy seemingly jumped the shark here in china is when an entrepreneur opened his shop on what he thought was a great idea. >> it turned out to be all wet. 300,000 umbrellas went missing probably because people just decided to keep them. >> we might look at some of
8:23 am
these ideas in the u.s. and say that sounds kind of silly. are they perceived differently here? >> i think what is different is there is just a lot of adoption for new things. people try things all the time. there's almost this idea of what's new and what's cool. and people do jump into them. >> reporter: in a country of more than a billion people it's a lot of jumping. china's sharing economy jumped last year and expected to grow 40% this year and could account for 20% of china's gdp by 2025. the most successful example is china's version of uber. it is now the largest ride sharing company in china. in just one year it completed 1.4 billion rides. it took uber six years to reach the 1 billion mark. >> we don't know where this is going, but we know we're at the beginning of something huge. >> reporter: one issue here seems to be things that are labeled as part of the sharing

economy that really aren't. the latest would be shared refrigerators, you use your phone, you scan a code on it and you open it up and you decide what you want to eat. well, in the u.s. we might call that a vending machine. ben tracy, cbs news. >> although there's some refrigerators where people label everything. that means you can't share if there's food in there. like the one over here. >> same idea. well, a couple will have to pay their wedding photographer more than a million dollars. ahead, why a jury ruled the newlyweds ruined the woman's business. your local news is next.

8:36 am
heritage. one morning one of the community members explained to me that if i had a choice between cutting down a tree or not having money to send my child to school it wouldn't really be a choice. so that was life changing experience for me and helped me realize the value of connecting these people to the modern world in sustainable and healthy ways. >> did you go there in search of something? >> not business. i went in search of a deeper connection to myself. you know, in college i felt a bit lost and felt like there was some deeper parts of myself i wanted to get in touch with and for some reason the amazon rain forest with its culture and diversity spoke to me. >> how did you end up with a business? >> i ended up with a business out of this inspiration to find ways to create sustainable income for these communities and i found that they have such incredible plants and this one leaf really spoke to me. it's a leaf that has caffeine and anti oxidants and amazing
8:37 am
flavor and we saw it as a bridge for caffeine loving people in the united states and these communities in ecuador. >> taking yourself out of your comfort zone is always a possible discovery. what did you discover? >> really what it means to be fully alive is essential to these people. it's not what it seems that we should be inspiring people all the time but it ooes more of the opposite. they value from embracing our challenges and uncertainty as the pathway to fulfillment. that process of having to be comfortable with the unknown and not only use logic but intuition and find logic from the community and the world as well. >> and you've turned to the celebrity world for investment. how did you reach out to them? >> so one of the things i share a lot in the book is that when you're doing something authentic that for whatever reason the universe tends to attract

responding to the riots in 1967. racial tension erupted and led to one of the most violent riots in u.s. history. over five days 43 people were killed. more than 7,000 were arrested and hundreds of buildings were burned to the ground. the new movie focuses on an incident at the motel where police killed three black men and beat nine others. actor john boyega plays a private security guard who got caught in the middle as he tries to assist police but the tables turned when they questioned him as a suspect. >> sometimes when a black guy is put in a position of authority, other black guys, they like to single you out. okay. because i'm not supposed to tell them what to do. >> when we have these conversations, we do them in stages. okay? stage one, witnesses. stage two, suspects.
8:44 am
>> what stage are we in? >> you don't know what stage we're in. >> no, could you specify for me? >> yeah, we're in stage 2. >> john boyega joins us now here at the desk. good morning. >> good morning. how are you doing? >> good. i want to read something that rolling stones says about this. it's a hard core masterpiece that digs into our violent past to hold up a dark mirror to the systemic racism that still rages here and the now. >> what kind of weight comes with this type of project? >> i think it's an interesting weight. it's an interesting balance of a few things. number one is the fact that you're basically going back to a very hard piece of history. and you're reenacting very horrific scenes but at the same time it's also the responsibility of delivering the truth. specifically the emotional truth. it's also a reflection of what's going on today and that conjures responsibility but at the same time it's important for us to go
8:45 am
there. >> what's the truth that this movie says? >> i mean the truth is that systematic racism has been a deep part of american history, not only american but globally and it's an insight to racial relations and tensions to people who haven't been given the best opportunity by the system and that's something that this move vie explores in the intricate but complex way. >> this is a really intense movie as a viewer, particularly that scene in the hotel with the nine tortured and the three killed. acting that out must have been intense for you. what was that like? >> it was definitely intense because with any movie like this you have to keep a level of intensity to assure that there's an emotional truth to the characters that you're playing. you want to make sure you're doing them justice as we are playing real people. it's tiring. you get hungry real quick. but it's worth it. we have an amazing director and

she stands as the motivation, so it all works out. >> how many takes did you do of that scene? >> we done a good few. it felt to a certain point that we kept on going and she likes to leave the cameras rolling two or three minutes just to get a natural energy, so it took a while and we were there in the motel for a long time. but it was -- it was worth it. i mean, watching it, it's worth it. >> you had good roles in two movies, star wars the force awakens and now this which is getting allot of attention. you've also spoken out about diversity. do you have a feeling that this kind of movie will make a difference? >> personally, i mean, this is set on a specific story and so you would need to cast black actors but for me it's about obviously making the imagination a bit wider when it comes behind
8:47 am
the scenes and need to have more people behind the scenes of diverse origin. >> we had the same conversation yesterday about female directors. >> yeah, we need all of that. the more we have behind the scenes the more their perspective influences the projects they put up, so hopefully this will change but this is so specific i think it's in its own world of intensity and as you said, it's -- it's a history lesson. >> what do you learn from directors? >> for me, specifically on this, it's -- it's craft. it's craft. the ability to harness and expose yourself in a way that sheds your light on to a character and it's a weird feeling and some directors can get that out of you and some can't. so i've been in a great position worked with so far have been pretty good. it's been -- i've been kind of spoiled. >> an education. >> absolutely and they all come
8:48 am
with their different perspectives and energies and ways of working which is great for me as an actor. i can tell hollywood that i can work with all of them. i can do it. >> so john, millions of us star wars nerds want to know, who is the last jedi? >> i don't know. >> that's next for fin. >> well, a stronger story. i think people are looking for him to recover from his back injury and he will be out the bed and ready to go fight. >> if you knew would you tell us? >> no. >> john boyega, thank you so much. detroit is open now in select cities and nationwide on friday. students in indiana went on a field trip to their teacher's wedding. ahead, the important assignment that all 20 kids successfully pulled off. you can hear more of "cbs this morning" on our pod cast and find extended berviews and
