6:00 am
feeling dead on your feet? i've been on my feet all day. dr. scholl's massaging gel insoles have a unique gel wave design for outrageous comfort that helps you feel more energized. dr. scholl's. feel the energy! hello on this sunday. it is 9:00 in the eastern. 6:00 on the west. here's what's happening. breaking news from new zealand. a powerful earthquake struck the south island near the city of christchurch triggering a tsunami warning. what can you tell us about the earthquake? >> this was a powerful earthquake, struck just after midnight. moments ago we were able to speak to one los angeles native who has been living in new zealand who was shaken awake by this powerful quake. him and his roommates were forced to run out of the building. authorities are warning of a tsunami threat. and so they're asking people to move to higher ground to safer
6:01 am
ground. now, of course, new zealand lies in a notorious called the ring of fire. this is an area that is used to these kinds of situations, the location is significant, christchurch, of course, is still recovering from that deadly 2011 quake that killed 185 people, virtually destroyed the entire city center. we're not hearing reports of any casualties at this point. there has been damage of apartment buildings, the insides of houses. no significant structural damage as far as we know at this moment, but, again, that tsunami quake -- that sue natsunami thr a huge concern. authorities say people must get to higher grounds. they say the initial waves will be smaller than the later waves that could come. people are bracing for the worst. >> do you have any idea when we'll know how severe this
6:02 am
tsunami might be? >> we're going to have to keep watching this and monitoring this very, very closely, these waves could continue for quite some time. this is something that authorities are looking into and, again, they're not taking any chances, asking for people to get out of lower lying areas to get to safety. they don't want the same things that happened in 2011 happen again. >> that was devastating. we'll stay on top of this. thank you so much for your report. now to political news. hillary clinton is weighing in for the first time on how the fbi's decision to re-examine her use of a private e-mail server may have led to the election outcome. clinton made her comments during a conference call with donors yesterday. she blamed director comey's letter to congress for stopping her momentum 11 days before election day. also saying that the secretary letter sent two days before the election which didn't reveal anything significant further motivated trump voters to turn out. clinton, however, did not accuse comey of partisanship. sources have confirmed the comments to nbc and as we await
6:03 am
details on what the trump administration will look like, the president elect is partially crediting his use of social media for his historic win, but suggesting he might scale it back a little bit on twitter during his presidency. his comments are part of his first sit-down interview since election night and will air on 60 minutes tonight. >> i have a method of fighting back that is very -- >> you're going to do that as president? >> i'm going to do very restrained if i use it at all. i really believe that the fact that i have such power in terms of numbers with facebook, instae win all the races where they're spending much more money than i spent. and i won. i think that social media has more power than the money they spent and i think maybe to a certain extent i proved that. >> and as many of you might have seen during his "snl" debut, dave chappelle devoted his entire opening monologue to the
6:04 am
election and ended with a personal message to president elect trump. >> i feel bad saying it, i'm staying in a trump hotel right now. i don't know ifs going to make a good president, but he makes a swell hotel swim, i'll tell you that. i'm wishing donald trump luck. and i'm going to give him a chance and we, the historically disenfranchised demand that he give us one too. >> while an estimated 25 ,000 demonstrators hit the streets of new york on saturday to protest donald trump, the president elect kept a low profile and focused on stepping up his administration. let's go to hallie jackson. what do we know today about the names on trump's short list? >> well, they're there. their transition team is working hard for sure. and here is a couple of things we know. one key appointments is going to be the chief of staff selection. that's probably at the top of the list. one senior source close to the
6:05 am
president elect tells me that rnc chair reince priebus is the front-runner for that position with that transition team working it in overdrive. today, more transition talk at trump tower after more protests outside and even inside so-called white house north. filmmaker michael moore live streaming his stand against trump before security stopped him on the fourth floor. >> illegitimate president, does not have the vote of the people. >> other visitors far friendly, like nigel farage, the british politician who backed brexit. >> this is brexit times five. >> the president elect now crediting his own victory partly to his twitter, facebook and instagram accounts, telling "60 minutes," he won't give up social media completely. >> i'm going to do very restrained, if i use it at all. i find it tremendous.
6:06 am
it is a modern form of communication. there should be nothing we should be ashamed of. it is where it's at. >> trump's chief of staff pick expected any day with the rnc's reince priebus at the top of the short list. >> i think a chairman priebus expresses interest in the position, several people being considered and mr. trump's decision ultimately. >> also in the running, campaign sources point to chris christie and corey lewandowski. for secretary of state, contenders like newt gingrich or john bolton. other cabinet picks expected to include senator jeff session and former new york mayor rudy giuliani. trump building his cabinet and mending some fences or trying to. >> here's what i know. donald trump is a phony, a fraud. >> the president elect calli ii former gop nom nat mitt romney.
6:07 am
clinton there making her own phone calls and it is notable too that president elect trump reached out to mitt romney. he was -- romney was a firm never trumper, one of the first to speak out publicly and directly against donald trump. so watching that relionship unfold will be an interesting on >> no doubt. >> and in the meantime, a lot of people waiting to hear these names as trump staffs up. any idea how long this process is going to take? >> so it is my understanding from closes source to the transition that we will hear the chief of staff pick and any day now at this point. it is possible as soon as today we could hear about the chief or early this week. as we talk about, that's first piece of the musical chairs if you will that puts into place because that opens up different positions and then you'll see some moving around happening. here is some of the top leg
6:08 am
cabinet positions, people like the defense secretary, people like the secretary of state, we have been hearing several names being thrown around. clear there are certain folks who both the transition team and president elect would like to see installed in top positions, like newt gingrich, rudy giuliani. but it is not clear where some of the names will fit. >> thank you, hallie. appreciate it. and joining me now is amy parns. i know you just a few days ago reported on clinton campaign officials. what more can you tell us about the call to donors yesterday? >> it basically echoed that call that jen palmieri, the communications director and her campaign chairman said, you know, she is as we mentioned earlier heart broken, she does feel in a big way that comey did block her from getting this they were feeling really good in the
6:09 am
days leading up to election day. i think they were feeling very good the day of. i don't know if we can give that much weight to, it hurt her in a big way, but i think there were other factors that played, we're hearing from other people, i've spoken to lots of sources in the actual states like michigan and wisconsin who said they were sounding alarms for weeks and never getting the assistance they needed to get them over the bar. i think a lot of the factors, it is hard to say what contributed, but i think it is a lot of different factors playing in. i don't think you can just pin it on comey. >> as trump decides how to fill his cabinet, which we talked about, sources are telling one of our colleagues that conservative radio host laura ingraham is being considered for press secretary. are you hearing that too and what message would that send? >> one of my colleagues jonathan
6:10 am
swan yesterday reported this late last night. we're hearing that as well from sources that this is someone very close to trump, helped him prepare for the debate, he trusts her. he doesn't really have someone in his orbit the way president obama did at the time with someone like robert gibbs. he doesn't have someone with that cache who can handle the press corps and it is pretty much the toughest job in washington, i would think. every day you have -- part of the white house press corps, an entire shark tank kind of asking you the toughest questions and he needs someone like laura ingraham up there. i don't think he has anyone that can fill that role. i think that's why he's looking elsewhere. this will actually send a message that he's not only considering insiders, but outsiders as well. >> how do you think that relationship will be with the press? it has been a bit contentious, during the election. but now he's president, i think a lot of us in the media are
6:11 am
wondering are you going to be open to us covering you, which is our job? >> right. the big part of that is having the traveling press pool that goes in with you to these events. he didn't have one this past week when he met with president oba obama. he said this breaks with tradition, you need to do better there. i'm curious to see how that plays out. i now trump aides are saying give us time, we're preparing this, in this transition team, but i'm curious to see how this all works out. i think a lot of members of the media and the press corps were concerned about coverage going forward. >> and for good reason. let's add this to it. kellyanne conway saying the announcement of the chief of staff is imminent. any idea who is up for that? >> i'm hearing steve bannon and reince priebus.
6:12 am
that will be the ultimate indicator of where the administration is going, the first one we get. whether he's committed to actually talking to the establishment and bringing the establishment in or if he's going to, you know, just say, i won this election by being the outsider and this is what the american people want. but, you know, we have seen a toned down trump in recent days. so i'm curious to see how that works out. i think reince priebus would help. he needs to bring the washington insiders in, if he wants to effectively govern. i think that's why we saw him appoint his -- the vice president elect mike pence to head up the transition team. >> how do you think he's going to be weighing in on this. he's got a big job to be the go between if you will. >> yeah. it is very tough. i think he is -- he's very close with house speaker paul ryan, he knows a lot of these -- he's
6:13 am
been in washington or he was in washington before he was governor for so long. so he knows the players. he has a full roll de dex of pee to reach out to. that's one reason why president elect trump turned to him. >> don't you think he has to be careful too. trump said he's going to drain the swamp. some of the names on the list doesn't appear that to be the case. >> no, and that's true. i'm hearing from people who backed him who are a little concerned about what he might do because if he was signaling that he will in fact bring in washington insiders, that's kind of what he was campaigning against. if he -- it will be a good indication of the way he's going to govern going forward, i think. >> as presidentle trump gets ready to receive the i briefings, a lot of us are talking about that for good reason, the washington post suggests he's in for a rude awakening. trump is about to learn the deep secrets that tare fide obama in
6:14 am
'08. >> i think that's why we're hearing reports that he wants to put off the trial for trump university, he wants to pay full attention to what is happening on his transition team, and to kind of learn the ins and outs of what it takes to reside over a country. and so it is challenging. i think someone with no political experience is -- has quite a bit of catching up to do. i think that's an understatement. >> all right. amy, thank you for joining us today. >> thank you. so what role should democrats take during the trump administration? i'm going to ask the former president and ceo of the naacp. the pursuit of healthier. it begins from the second we're born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company
6:15 am
optum powers modern healthcare by connecting every part of it. so while the world keeps searching for healthier we're here to make healthier happen.

small business saturday is our day to get out and shop small. a day to support our community and show some love for the people we love. and the places we love. the stuff we can't get anywhere else and food that tastes like home. because the money we spend here can help keep our town growing. on small business saturday, let's shop small for our neighborhood, our town, our home. on november 26th, get up, (all) get together and shop small.
6:17 am
really is about knowing and
6:18 am
recognizing that people were suffering in this country. and mr. trump, like it or not, spoke to that hurt in a way that got him to be now president elect. >> that was former ohio state senator nina turner on our air yesterday, discussing the unrest in america that catapulted donald trump to an unexpected victory. after a fourth night of demonstrations, protesters are preparing today to again voice their discontent with the outcome of another expression of the nation's unrest. joining me is ben jealous of the naacp, visiting professor at princeton university's woodrow wilson school. good morning to you. >> good morning. great to be here. >> great to have you. i want to get your opinion on this. portland's mayor condemned the protest last night saying this. >> going to the streets for another night is not going to keep donald trump from taking office, and isn't going to change anything. >> by the end of the night, portland police department
6:19 am
reported one shot and 19 arrested in local demonstrations. so what is your take on the protests? >> look, you know, nonviolent peaceful protests are a good thing. but what you've seen in a lot of the western cities is a lot of young folks who come in, they put on masks, they break windows, i think defying most people's racial stereotypes, tend to be white, young protesters who make a sport of breaking windows downtown. we see it, you know, down in california, we see it in -- >> you're saying white young protesters only? >> well, no, but most -- i think we had so many uprises, people are used to saying, black teens protesting in cities across the country police brutality, but cities in the northwest, you actually have a tradition, it goes back to the g-7 meetings, of groups of white kids who come in small groups, they'll pawn
6:20 am
b bandannas and break windows. the mayors are wrong to condemn all protests. most are peaceful. but the most violent ones in these protests in the northwest, you know, really are a real problem. i would say, you know, focus on the violent protesters, but don't condemn the actual protests. >> you're a supporter of bernie sanders and he said in an op-ed for the new york times saying, quote, i will keep an open mind to see what ideas mr. trump offers and when and how we can work together. having lost the nationwide popular vote, however, he would do well to heed the views of progressives. so what role should democrats take during the trump administration? >> look, we got to distinguish trump and his rhetoric from the voters who put him over the top. the reality is the voters who put him over the top were
6:21 am
responding to his frank talk about the state of the economy and desire to be create jobs here and to making things here. we got to reach out to those voters. the establishment of the democratic party which we and the bernie sanders camp quite frankly were always at odds with, you know, really has gotten comfortable not dealing with the fact that from our cities to our rural places, there has been massive poverty that has risen up as jobs have disappeared. and so our party has to get back to being the party of the people. at the same time, we got to take trump at his word. you know, that, you know, he intends to go after many basic rights. have to get ready to hold massive protests, to defend the rights of our neighbors. and ourselves. and so you'll see, i think, a two-pronged approach as dems get back to being the part of the people and on the other hand
6:22 am
get -- in doing so, getting back to being the party of the people, going after the trump voters, trying to pull them back into the fold, showing that we are here to actually fight for jobs and to fight bad trade deals and at the same time holding massive protests as trump comes after our rights. we say one thing, that this choice that he has, you know, for chief of staff, on the one hand, you have a man who is of the swamp that he describes. reince priebus chairman of the republican party could not be more establishment. similar to jamie dimon he was trying to bring in to be head of the treasury. on the other hand, you have steve bannon, known white nationalist and a pretty hateful guy. and so the fact that his choice is between those two poles i think shows one, what we're going to be dealing with, the establishment and the fringe, and at the same time has not figured out how to build middle ground. >> who should he choose then?
6:23 am
>> well, i think the reality is he's having a hard time because he's been so horrible towards women, towards plaques, towards latinos, towards muslims that are people leery with working with his administration. he should choose someone who is capable of unite the country. and given he's called the d.c. establishment a swamp, choosing a chairman of the party of the swamp doesn't make a lot of sense. most don't identify with bannon's horrible hateful rhetoric and history, well, that's not good either. there is lots of folks to choose from. >> these are the names we're hearing. so time will tell who he actually chooses. i want to get you to this. michael moore shared his take on the election's outcome on our air on friday. listen to what he had to say.
6:24 am
>> you have to accept that millions of people voted for barack obama, some once, some twice, changed their minds this time. they're not racist. they twice voted for a man whose middle name is hussein. that's the america you live in. >> how do you interpret that? >> i was with mike tuesday night. we ran into each other going in and out of tv studios. talking. and both of us knew early in the evening the way things were going to go. we had been trying to warn people for months. he, you know, he'll tell you, look, you know, i am of the demographic that is helping trump win. i only have gone to high school, i'm a white male, i'm over 35, i'm from an area that has been deindustrialized and he carries with him a lot of pain because he is somebody who wants to see us united across races and
6:25 am
across all the divides in our society, but also knows that the people who are like him, from places like flint, deserve not to be forgotten. deserve to have jobs. deserve to have hope for their children and their future. and, you know, like me, would like to see the democratic party get back to the best of, you know, the new deal traditions that really built our party. >> might take some time after the outcome of this election. a lot of people have some high hopes and we'll see how it plays out. we'll have to cut you off there, ben. thank you for your time. thank you for joining us. more protests are expected across the nation five days after the election. how the messages eye involevolv li report. ould know more about e food you choose. with beyond, you have a natural pet food that goes beyond telling ingredients to showing where they come from.

welcome back. i'm betty nguyen. at the half hour, here is what we're monitoring today. a powerful earthquake has rocked new zealand. authorities say the quake triggered a tsunami whose first wave hit within the last hour or so. the biggest reported wave so far was about 4.5 feet. there are reports of damaged bridges on state highways and a partial collapse of a ferry terminal in wellington. the earthquake struck the country's south island after midnight and has been followed by dozens of after shocks. at this point, there are no reports of any injuries but we will keep you posted. new reaction from trump campaign manager kellyanne conway casting trump's historic win as a model for the republican party. >> enthusiasm and the momentum, chuck, that donald trump created as part of his movement, really ended up translating into votes
6:33 am
on election day. i hope even those who were critical of mr. trump of president elect trump, i like the sound of that, i hope they learned something from the voters. that's what so many of us have been urging from the beginning. you want to grow the republican party, pay attention to what he's done. >> also new this morning, house speaker paul ryan is trying to put the minds of anti-trump protesters at ease and distancing the party from those being accused of racial violence in the wake of the historic win. >> if people who espouse those views, they're not republicans and we don't want them in the party if they're thinking about it. and i'm confident that donald trump feels the same way. there is no place for that. as long as foreprotests are peaceful, if people want to do that, that's what the nation is about. >> demonstrators marched the streets since trump's victory. even in germany.
6:34 am
morgan what do you expect to see today? >> we expect to see more forests today. here in new york, they're starting in central park near another trump hotel and starting to walk here to trump towers. we're on fifth avenue. just yesterday, there were 20,000 protesters here in new york. they were chanting things like we reject the president elect. and they were holding signs that said my body, my choice. we saw disparate groups coming together to say, look, we know we cannot change the results of the election, but what we want to do is make our voices heard. we want people to know we're unhappy and they also wanted people to know they stood with their brothers and sisters who they felt were marginalized by some of president elect donald trump's comments. we saw a couple of familiar faces. take a listen. >> one of the smallest demonstrations. >> you think they're going to get bigger? >> they're only going to get bigger. the majority of the people didn't vote for him. >> i felt it was important to demonstrate with the people in
6:35 am
the city. we have a right to have this. we have a right as citizens of the united states to demonstrate together peacefully. not about looting. just about expressing our anger. >> for the most part, these protests were peaceful. two arrests here in new york last night and 11 arrests made the night before here in new york. today we're entering the fifth day. that protest beginning at 2:00 p.m. and ending at 4:00. we'll keep an eye on that and the other protests happening today around the country. >> morgan, following it all. thank you, morgan. >> in president elect trump's victory speech, he promised to be for all americans. the petition by the southern poverty law center is demanding trump keep his word. 47,000 people have signed the petition. it calls o trump to assure the country that no one associated with a hate group orr any form of extremism will have a position, a voice or influence
6:36 am
in the trump administration. let's bring in pastor mark burns of the now television network and a trump supporter to talk about this. good morning to you. >> good morning to you. >> well, pastor, first of all what is your reaction to this petition? is that a commitment trump should or would make? >> you know, president elect trump and again, i love the sound of that, has made it very clear throughout his campaign that he disavowed any form of domestic or foreign hate groups in america and i can assure the american public and especially those in the minority communities that a trump administration is going to be an administration that is going to raise up the economic value of all americans. that is including minorities. >> how can you assure that? >> well, you know, for one, i've been with him for over a year and a half. i know the man's heart.
6:37 am
i listened to the voice of the people and the voice of my spirit that clearly states that mr. trump is a man for the people. again, i've been declaring over a year and a half i'm from the deep south. i've seen what real hate looks like, what real racism looks like and what real division looks like. i'm born and bred from a society that in many cases some still believe blacks should be one place, whites should be another. but here i'm still supporting donald trump because he exudes love for all people. he is without a doubt will be a president for all races and minorities should be excited for the future of america because i believe for the first time ever we would truly have the true economic power and revival we have never had under democratic rule. >> let me bring this to your attention, southern poverty law
6:38 am
center is reporting a spike in hate crimes. does he bear some responsibility for this? >> well, for the incidents of -- again, let me say this, president elect trump and before he was president -- not any form of receptivism. we knew in one of the other state, african-american church was burnt down, someone sprayed the name vote trump on there, that has nothing to do with donald trump. we don't even know if donald trump -- if these people who did that were even supporters of donald trump. they're trying to create a false narrative that -- >> this false narrative, respectfully, let me ask you this, if it is a false narrative, how can you account for this apparent rash of racist incidents when it is happening now, specifically, how can you argue it is not at all related
6:39 am
to him? >> i don't think this racial division in our country is because of donald trump. this is a racial tension that has been in our country for over 400 years. what we need to do now is to -- let's be clear. this was most definitely a bloody battle and there were lines that were driven in the sand. this is time for our country to real eye unify. that's what democracy is. so that now we have passed the baton. president barack obama talked about supporting donald trump. even secretary clinton who i applaud her for her many accomplishments have -- >> i have to apologize for some of the technical difficulties. i want to get this question in quick, pastor. when you hear about the kkk planning a parade in honor of trump's victory, how does that make you feel being on the same
6:40 am
side as a group whose stated goal is hating people like you? >> well, the fact of the matter is we -- this is america. and anyone in this country has a right to support or vote for whoever they want to, but, again, a trump administration is not a white supremist administration, not even by a little. again, they're trying to paint that false narrative. donald trump loves americans. donald trump loves people. donald trump without question taking me on, an unknown pastor from a small town in south carolina and because of knowing that i truly support the -- over a year and a half ago, has allowed me to stay with them and allowed me to go across the nation to bring unity to this divided country. this is the true character of donald trump, not these hate crimes or these hate groups that are speaking in the name of trump, no, that is not at all

in a conference call to donors, hillary clinton partly claimed her loss on two letters from james comey sent with less than two weeks left in the campaign. one letter, 11 days before election day, renewed a look at potential new clinton e-mails. the second letter coming two days before election day suggesting nothing new in the investigation. joining me now, linda chavez, chair of the center for equal opportunity and former senior
6:45 am
reagan white house official. and jonathan alter, msnbc political analyst and author of the center holds, obama and his enemies. thank you for being here today. let me start with you. hillary clinton's suggestion that the second letter from comey finding nothing angered trump voters. weren't they angry and motivated before or is this a tipping point? >> i don't think it was the tipping point. i think it is unfortunate that secretary clinton tried to blame comey for the election failure. i was a very, very staunch trump opponent, critic, but the fact is that a lot of voters in places like western wisconsin, michigan, and elsewhere decided they didn't trust hillary clinton and i don't think it had very much to do with what fbi director comey had to say. i think it had to do with wanting change. i think they just didn't really gravitate toward her and i think
6:46 am
it is just bad form to blame comey for her election loss. >> jonathan, take the letters out of the campaign equation if you will. do you think hillary clinton is president elect today? >> i think there is a decent chance. but we'll never know how much of a chance generally historians don't like to go for what they call monocausal explanations of major historical events, which this was. but i think it is also, you know, not right to say it had nothing to do with this. look, i talked to top clinton advisers, 48 hours before and they were very confident about this election. and it is not just that their polling was so off. yes, the polling failed. they had reason to believe they had gotten beyond comey's statement of 11 days before. then he brings it up again and in a way that is not really all that clarifying, just reminds

people of the e-mail matter that they had kind of almost forgotten about and clinton had gotten her strength back from. so that did not help them. that last bit of news about the e-mails. in a very close election, separated by only 100,000 votes across three states, which is not very many out of 120 million, could have made the difference. >> you tweeted about voting tuesday for the next gop president marco rubio, meaning 2020. suggesting trump would lose. what do you think today about is >> i still think that if marco rubio became president in 2020 he would be the next republican president. i haven't forgotten that donald trump spent most of his life as a democrat. i think many of the things he favors, his opposition to trade, for example, is not a core republican principle. i think the success of his presidency is going to depend on whether or not the economy gets
6:48 am
rolling again and he could play a helpful role in that. along with speaker ryan and mitch mcconnell. if, in fact, there are targeted tax cuts and we see more hiring by american businesses and he doesn't invoke his trade tariffs that he has promised to do, that we could see a movement, economic movement that will be helpful and he'll have a successful presidency. but i'm still not convinced that he is a republican. i don't think he's a conservative. but, you know, i could be proved wrong. >> jonathan, the washington post notes that in the call, hillary clinton made to donors, she said nothing about other larger forces at work, trump's message of change and his pledge to represent the aggrieved working class. even the difficulty of any political party winning a third consecutive presidential term. even her own limited attention to economic anxiety or the sexism and discomfort that
6:49 am
surrounded her attempt to become the first female president. that's a lot laid out there. which do you blame for her loss? >> i think all of them played a factor. i think it is ridiculous to say that sexism had no role at all in this campaign, just to give you one example of why i think -- look at the latino vote, much commented on this year. barack obama last time out got between 71 and 73% of the latino vote according to exit polls. hillary clinton got about 65%. now, why after everything that donald trump said about mexicans, everything he said about immigration should the democrats total fall mongla tinos. and the explanation seems to be that a lot of latino men, whether out of reasons of machismo or what have you just could not stomach the idea of hillary clinton as president.
6:50 am
i think there is a really objectionable effort under way to say that racism and sexism had nothing to do with this. but it is true that she lost contact, lost touch with the white class, and that cost her dearly in the rustbelt. >> yeah. well, speaking of immigration, linda, here's crisco vac, immigration adviser to the trump transition team, also the secretary of state in kansas talking about how to make mexico pay for a wall. i want you to take a listen to this. >> we tell them from this point forward after our regulation is passed if you want to send money home, remittances and you're an alien living in the united states, you have to prove that you are here legally before that money can be sent. well, that would shut off more than $10 billion a year that is sent home to mexico from mexican nationals living illegally in the united states, and the mexican people depend on that money. >> linda, how do you interpret
6:51 am
that? >> well, i think chris kobach's involvement in this administration causes me a heart palpitations. he has been the spearhead of the anti-immigrant movement. he drafted the legislation, the initiative rather that passed in arizona. he is part of the anti-population, anti-immigrant movement that is comprised of fair center for immigration studies and numbers usa, and if he is going to be the face of the trump administration on the immigration issue. it's not just going to be a problem for mexico and mexicans living in the united states. it's going to be a problem for our economy because the last thing that we need is to depopulate this country by sending people home, by making it difficult for them to live here. illegal immigrants are about 6% of the u.s. workforce. they do jobs that americans will not do, and if they were to
6:52 am
leave, you would see a recession in this country. >> yeah. there would be a bit of a void there. >> it would cost our economy big. >> it would be a big problem. >> thank you for your insight today. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. it's a day that shocked the world and changed one of the word's greatest cities forever. that is next. y

y. today marks one year since the terror attacks in paris that targeted the bataclan concert hall as well as a series of bars and restaurants killing 130 people. nbc's bill neely is in paris. bill, how is france commemorating this somber day? >> reporter: yes, good morning, betty. this truly was remembrance sunday in a city still haunted by the events of exactly a year ago. there were ceremonies both here at the bataclan concert hall and at the other five sites targeted by those islamist gunmen. here where 90 people were killed at the restaurant where 19
6:56 am
people were murdered, they laid flowers. they read out the names of each of the dead, and they unveiled memorial plaques. there were relatives of the dead there and some survivors, and all the ceremonies were led by the french president francois hollande who could not have looked more somber. these were the worst terror attacks in recent french history and there's a determination here that france will not be defeated, that the french way of life will not be ended by these attacks and so this concert hall is open again. it was reopened last night by the rock star sting, a concert that began with the song "fragile." he said he was here to honor the victims and also to honor this very well-known iconic music hall, and he asked the 1,500 or so fans there to stand for a minute silence. so deeply moving ceremonies here, but one sour note. there were two members of the
6:57 am
california rock band eagles of death metal. they were playing a year ago. they tried to get in here last night, and they were refused entry because their lead singer had suggested that it was an inside job, that many so of the muslim security men here may have been implicated in the attack. so they were told they could not get in. so there will be masses here tonight. >> yeah. >> and the ceremonies will continue for the rest of this somber day. >> all right, bill. >> reporter: back to you, betty. >> thanks for that report. up next on "a.m. joy," where voter i.d. laws may have made a decided difference in the outcome of the election. i'm betty nguyen. have a good day. g new cars.
