see you tomorrow. now, it is time fingerprint to. i'll be wearing bright blue shoes. . "first look" is up next. >> it is friday, may 13th. right now on "first look," the obama administration will issue a directive to america's public schools on transgender bathroom access. what came out of that much hyped donald trump meeting with the gop leaders including republican wiseman james baker. one brave woman takes on two armed carjackers at gunpoint. plus, a survivor story involving that plane and 17 sky divers who walked away. that and much more. "first look" starts right now. good morning, everyone. i'm dara brown. today the obama administration will issue new directives to all public schools across the country on the use of bathrooms
when it comes to transgender students and those guidelines are expected to tell schools, they have to treat students consistent with their student identity. edward lawrence is in washington with more. good morning to you, edward. >> reporter: good morning. this affects all public schools and most colleges and universities. there will be strong language in the letter sent to those educational institutions, warning them if they don't comply federal funds will be cut off. this means that accommodations need to be made for the locker rooms and bathrooms. this comes days after the north carolina and the federal government sued each other over the bathroom bill. states backed down and so far, north carolina has not backed down. the white house says they will not cut off funds to north carolina until all of the lawsuits are settled here. this bill or this directive goes into effect today. and it means that -- or there is no word actually on when the financial institutions or when the schools and other
institutions will lose money if there is a violation. dara? >> interesting day ahead. edward lawrence, thank you so much. well, mr. trump goes to washington. thursday's high profile meetings on capitol hill may be over, but for the republican party the unifying is just beginning. donald trump met with leaders from the house, the senate and the rnc on the agenda breaking the ice and discussing a wide range of issuing involving trade, entitlements, tax policy and the supreme court. the party leaders have almost universally said the meetings were a success. >> it was a positive mood. it was a mood of cooperation and a feeling that it's time to unify the party. >> we talked about the issues and i look forward to continuing the conversation. >> i got a strong sense that everyone who attended really felt good about the meeting. >> the most important meeting on the agenda -- trump's 45 minute face to face with house speaker paul ryan. ryan didn't go the extra step of endorsing trump.
>> i was very encouraged with what i heard from donald trump today. i do believe that we are now planting the seeds to get ourselves unified, to bridge the gaps and differences and so from here we'll go deeper into the policy areas to see where that common ground is and how we can make sure we're operating off the same core principles. and here's what trump said to fox news regarding his meeting with ryan. >> i thought it was a great meeting. we had -- we discussed a lot of thing, a lot of important things. i thought it was really a very, very good meeting. i think paul felt the same way and everybody else did also. i think we really had a great meeting today. i think we agreed on a lot of things and it will be a little process, but it will come along. pretty sure. >> trump also paid a visit to his lawyers meeting with lobbyists and republican officials including wiseman and former secretary of state james baker. meanwhile, trump's in some hot water after his long time butler anthony senecal posted an
incendiary statement on facebook calling for president obama to be killed. he backed it up in a phone interview with nbc news. >> there's more than some issues. he's a [ bleep ] traitor. t-r-a-i-t-o-r, traitor. period. that's the way i feel. >> so you think that that's i guess what, should be done what traitors? >> i think he ought to be hung. i think he should be hung. i think he should be hung next to hillary clinton and i think it should be public, i think it should be televised. >> senecal did not previously discuss the thoughts with trump and the campaign issued this statement regarding senecal. he does not work at mar-a-lago and hasn't in many years.
we totally disavow and condemn these horrible statements. secret service says it is aware of the threat and is conducting an investigation. meanwhile, democrats hillary clinton and bernie sanders pounced on trump's capitol hill meetings. clinton releasing this statement, since donald trump became the republican party's presumptive nominee for president last tuesday, the course of conservative commentators from around the country rejecting his unpredictable risky and divisive candidacy has grown today. today, speaker ryan met with donald trump but he wasn't swayed by the nominee, as he again refused to endorse him. and sanders said this to nbc's chris jansing. >> you have to work out those policies with their kradz -- candidate for president who seems to change his views virtually every day except when he continues to insult latinos and mexicans and muslims and women and veterans and african-americans. they have got a serious problem and an extreme right wing party dealing with a guy who changes
his views every day. >> be sure to catch msnbc's "road warriors" at 4:00 p.m. eastern. they'll be talking about these stories and all the latest news from the campaign trail. the same day immigration activists protested donald trump on capitol hill, news broke that large scale deportations are planned across the country. raids are planned over the next two months and they stem from 2014 when tens of thousands of central americans arrived at the border. the administration has said it deports only those who have exhausted their legal appeals to remain in the country or those who don't make a case for pursuing asylum. bernie sanders and hillary clinton are wrapping up the democratic primary in california. both clinton and sanders denounced the administration's plans, standing against the large scale raids. the u.s. navy has fired the commander of ten american sailors who were detained briefly by iran in january. the navy says it's lost confidence in commander eric rasch whose squadron wandered into the territorial waters in
the persian gulf during a training mission. the ten sailor, nine male, one female, were held for 15 hours. a navy official tells the associated press rasch failed to provide effective leadership, leading to the lack of standards. he's berelieved of his command and duties. and police are searching for two would-be carjackers after they attempted to steal a vehicle from a gas station on saturday night. jasmine warren wasn't having it. warren wouldn't let them leave after they pointed a gun at her. finally, they decide they have had enough and they run away. the authorities say people were watching the struggle but no one intervened. a reward of up to $2,000 is being offered in the case. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. good morning. >> hi there, dara. happy friday. apple gets knocked off the perch

there's no endorsement. i think it matters how long does he wait to endorse. >> let's talk about this. we didn't expect to have full unity anyway. we knew that wasn't going to happen. but did speaker ryan pull enough in his comments to actually have the skeptics think he'll get behind trump even though he didn't endorse him? >> a lot of people don't like trump and particularly in the conservative movement. we have to wait and see, i think he's making room for the people. so he hopes and i think the rest of the republican party hopes when he eventually endorses him, let's try and get behind him. if he had done this right after he won indiana, i mean, you would have said no. he's trying to make it believable. >> see what the time frame is on that. well, moving on, today the white house issued guidelines on that transgender bathroom issues. do you think this -- this came out because of what's going on in north carolina and other states joining the bandwagon on
that? >> absolutely. stat states litigating the issue is forcing them to take the opposite route. we see conservative governments codify the discrimination and the government is trying to bring that and make it -- head it off. other future laws like that. >> see what happens later today when it is officially announced. meanwhile, the president taking a hit on obamacare. we reported on this story. a federal judge struck down a portion -- ruling that the president exceeded his authority, quote, in you know last rally funding a provision that subsidized billions of dollars at insurers' costs. how is this going to play out? >> we knew this was coming because the administration had asked for the funding an congress refused and they said, actually, we think we can do it from the earlier appropriation. but this could be a big blow for obamacare. we are seeing that premiums are likely to rise next year. more sick people did sign up than they expected and some of the premiums were set a little low for the level of sick people
who were signing up for insurance. now that they're now able to. so it could be a really big blow but of course the federal government is going to appeal this real fast. >> exactly. jane timm, thank you so much. always a pleasure to have you. >> great to be here. well, just ahead, a computer glitch causes major headaches at phoenix sky harbor. and some welcome arrivals at the zurich zoo. it's how i try to live... how i stay active. so i need nutrition... that won't weigh me down. for the nutrition you want without the calories you don't... try boost® 100 calories. each delicious snack size drink gives you... 25 vitamins and minerals and 10 grams of protein. and it's available in two new flavors, vanilla caramel and double chocolate fudge. i'm not about to swim in the slow lane. stay strong. stay active with boost®.
