vice-president-elect mike pence both set to visit the hill to rally their troops over the health care law. this is the day two headline that republicans wanted to see on day one of the new session of congress, when it was a flip-flop over an ethics office that ended up stealing the spotlight. >> reporter: dueling meetings on capitol hill setting up a showdown politically. president obama and vice-president-elect mike pence. one fighting to protect the health care law. the other, trying to tear it down. >> we declare that health care in america is a privilege not for the few, but a right for everybody. today, our uninsured rate is the lowest levels on record. >> reporter: at the white house, what the president is calling a strategy session, to explain how the popular parts of the law could put the public on democrats' side. administration officials calling repeal and replace bait and switch instead. >> we ask the president-elect,

if you repeal the aca, what are you going to do to protect these 30 million people? >> reporter: the gop has no replacement plan to announce yet, or a way to pay for it, but still ready to make good on a year's long promise to kill the law. >> the first job the new congress will have is to repeal obamacare. >> reporter: taking the first step toward it, on the first day of the new congress. it is a time line that could stretch to 2018 or beyond. >> experts say it could take years. >> reporter: a top source close to mike pence tells nbc news his meetings today are to be part pep talk and part signal to republicans, that the incoming administration has their back. it is also a counterpoint to president obama's rare trip down pennsylvania avenue. republican leaders looking for a better day two this session after a rocky start on day one. coming under fire, then scratchiscratch i -- scrapping plans to defang an ethics watchdog after backlash

7:06 am
intelligence community and the auto industry. nbc's kristen welker is at trump tower with more. hi, kristen. good morning. >> hi, katie. good morning to you. president-elect donald trump has been at odds with the intelligence community for weeks. but now, his latest tweet may be inflaming the situation even more. that is just one of the many twitter battles he's picked this week. >> reporter: president-elect donald trump may be opening up an even larger rift with the init will jei intelligence agencies he is about to lead. tweeting, the russian hacking trial was delayed. very strange. an official tells nbc news the meeting was always scheduled for friday and calls trump's tweet distu disturbing. the president-elect questioning intelligence assessments that russia meddled in the november election. late last night, he may have gotten an assist from wikileaks
7:07 am
founder julian assange. >> have said repeatedly over the last few months that our source is not the russian government and it is not the state party. >> reporter: trump taking aim at the u.s. auto industry. first singling out gm for manufacturing cars in mexico and exporting them to the u.s. tax fre free. make in usa or pay border tax, trump warned in a tweet. the stock plummeted and the company defended itself. arguing a small number of its cars sold in global markets are made overseas. trump seemed to take credit for ford's announcement, cancelling plans to move a plant to mexico and keeping jobs in the u.s. as a candidate, trump railed against the company. >> ford announced it is moving all its small car production to mexico, also. not good. not good. >> reporter: ford's ceo insisted he didn't cut a deal with the president-elect but acknowledged -- >> but clearly, the policies
7:08 am
that president-elect trump has been talking about and says he will pursue did play a factor. >> reporter: meanwhile, new details about trump's inauguration, now 16 days away. former rival hillary clinton and her husband, former president bill clinton, announced they'll attend trump's swearing in, along with former president george w. bush and laura bush, creating a dramatic background for an unprecedented moment in history. >> last night, mr. trump said he'll hold a press conference next wednesday to discuss how he'll disentangle himself from his vast business empire. he's delayed it before, saying he needs to work through the complex details. it'll be his first news conference since july. >> kristen, thank you. let's bring in mark halperin and steve kornacki. mark, i'll start with you and start with the republican controlled congress and what happened yesterday. it was supposed to be their big day. the day they had the whole ball of wax, the house, the senate, soon to be the white house.
7:09 am
instead of a victory lap yesterday -- >> hashtag fail. >> right. they reversed course on the ethics office. who is to blame? >> it is a stumble, not a fumble. they can move on from this if they learn the lessons. they have to understand the biggest message of the election. people don't want business as usual in washington. they don't want politicians getting special treatment. decisions they made to change the rule was absurd. it was reversed for a range of reasons, including constituents and donald trump teaming up to tell them, no way. if they learn the lessons, i don't think there will be lingering costs. >> paul ryan didn't like the idea, steve. basically, house members said, yeah, yeah, okay, thanks. when donald trump said he didn't like it, and basically, everything changed. is this a sign of things to come, of the dynamics between paul ryan and president-elect trump? is he going to be saying to congress, jump, and they're going to be asking how high? >> it is interesting. nothing getting everyone's attention like winning an
7:10 am
election everyone thought you were going to lose. think about last year. paul ryan was communicating in every way possible, thinking donald trump was a sure loser in the election. his political instincts told him that. he said, hey, guys, this is a bad thing to do. then donald trump comes out a few hours later. this is a guy, his political instincts were validated in the grandest way possible in the election. he said, my instincts -- his argument yesterday was strategic. this is bad politics, guys. they're going to listen to him now, at least for a while. >> talking about politics, obamacare, of course, is front and center today. president obama going to capitol hill. does he have anything to gain by doing this in a republican controlled congress? is this a pr move? is he speaking to the american people? what's going on? >> this is a titanic debate the country will have. on the one side, democrats will say, you may not like everything about this law but a lot of you have health care now because of this law. >> 20 million people. >> keep it in place. the republicans are going to say, for six years, every
7:11 am
election we've run against this law. we can do a better job. the debate today on capitol hill will get attention, but it'll play out for months as both sides make the argument. do you want the current law or something different? republicans are obligated to try something different because they've told voters they will. >> it'll take forever, right? >> they own the issue now. let's talk about donald trump and the intelligence community. he tweets last night, the intelligence briefing on so-called russian hacking was delayed until friday. perhaps more time needed to build a case. very strange. you don't have to read between the lines there. he's saying that the intelligence briefings are cooking the books, that they're part of some vast intelligence conspiracy. pardon the pun. what is possibly to gain by this 16 days before you take the oath of office? >> i think it is two things here. first of all, this is donald trump. he clearly sees the coverage of this. he sees the persistence of this story. he sees it basically as his opponents in the democratic party and the media trying to delhe -- delegitimize his win.
7:12 am
donald trump's campaign capitalized on people not trusting major institutions, including the intelligence committee. >> when he says these things like, i know more than anybody else about something, or i know more about isis than the generals -- >> tweets this or that. >> does he understand how much scrutiny every word he says is going to receive once he takes that oath? >> or the impact the words have. >> he understands but as a time on the national stage as a politician, he never paid a price for it because he won the white house. when he is president of the united states and makes these claims, i think there will be a different standard and he'll learn a different lesson. you can't make claims as president of the united states and -- >> maybe he'll step away from the twitter. >> no, he won't, but maybe he'll think twice before hitting send. >> mark and steve, good to see you. let's move on. new information on the deadly
7:13 am
terror attack at an istanbul nightclub. officials identified a gunman who killed 39 people during a new year's celebration. he's not been publicly named and is at large. police detained five alleged isis members in connection with the attack. isis has claimed responsibility for the shooting, which also wounded nearly 70 people. meanwhile, here at home, a north carolina officer is on administrative leave today after video showed him slamming a female high school student to the ground. this morning, we're hearing from the girl as well as her mom. kerry sanders has the latest on that. kerry, good morning. >> good morning, katie. that video of a school resource officer body slamming a 15-year-old is the talk of the town, especially here at this high school. this morning, the girl's mother says she plans to do everything she can to have charges brought against the officer, as well as school officials. >> reporter: this morning
