alleging the president's business interests violates the constitution. our political team has in depth coverage, beginning with hallie jackson at the white house. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hi, natalie. good morning to you. and this morning, that lawsuit is set to be filed in district court in new york, on the first full weekday of the trump administration. the president's team has maintained his business ties don't present a conflict of interest. but those now suing the president say it is not at all that clear-cut. less than 72 hours after promising to uphold the constitution -- president trump getting sued, accused of violating it. that's the argument made today, by a group of hours and ethics experts, some with democratic ties, who says the president is breaking the clause that prohibits government officials from accepting any present,
emolument, from any king, prince or foreign state. it means no gifts from foreign governments. but the suit claims that the president is getting just that. leases by foreign-owned entities in trump tower. bookings at his newest hotel in washington. other hotel stays, leases and transactions, tied to foreign governments at places owned or licensed by donald trump. and payments from foreign-owned broadcasters. >> we're concerned that the president has not addressed this problem. and we believe it's time for the courts to do so. >> reporter: an administration aide tells nbc news, the president has no conflicts. the attorney advising him, preemptively brushing off criticism at a news conference this month. >> this is not what the constitution says. paying if for a hotel room is not a gift or a present. it's not an e emolument.
>> reporter: their argument? they believe it does not apply to fair value exchanges. even so, they say president trump will voluntarily donate profits from foreign governments who stay at his hotel, to the u.s. treasury. >> this way, the american people profit. >> reporter: but the president's critics call that lip service, insisting he is not doing enough to make sure the people can trust him to do what's best for the nation and not simply what's best for his business. part of the goal of this lawsuit is to force president trump's hand on his tax returns, which could illuminate any potential confli conflicts. 74% of americans should think the president should release those returns, including 49% of his own supporters. matt? natalie? >> hallie, thank you very much. let's bring in ari melber. the first thing the judge has to figure out is if the people
bringing the suit are harmed by the situation or if they're a group trying to gain something. >> there is case law on this. i reviewed this filing embargo. and it points to precedent in the supreme court. but large organizations like this, they're an ethics group, that have more trouble than a business competitor or someone that can show direct harm. >> assuming this moves forward, what's the end game here? >> they're not asking for money. they're not trying to send anyone to jail. they're asking for a judge to clarify something that's never been tested. we've never had a president with these kinds of holdings. saying what is a gift you can't take. and forcing the president to stop that business. >> but hallie just brought up tax returns. is this a smokescreen? is this a way to get into evidence released tax returns from president trump? >> if this suit moves forward, what they will be ask for is anything to actually show what we, the public, and journalists
have never seen, which is the full extent of the business. you would look for tax returns, which is a big one and a political story, as well. business records and something we've talked about before, who does the trump organization and donald trump owe money to? because if he were to get preferential treatment on a loan, that could be a gift under the constitution. it's asking the judge to define all that and stop it if it is a gift. >> ari, thank you very much. there's more on the president's plate today, including a series of meetings with top lawmakers. this, after a weekend that saw his team engage in heated exchanges with the media. and massive rallies all across the country. nbc national correspondent, peter alexander, has that part of the story. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. the contentious statement from the new press secretary happened in the briefing room. on sunday, president trump was more measured in his tone. he has a full day one on tap today. signing executive orders,
meeting with business, labor and congressional leaders, including a private visit with the house speaker, paul ryan. kicking off his first full week in the white house, among president trump's first acts, the swearing in of his senior staff. >> this is not about ideology. this is about country, our country. >> reporter: mr. trump, thanking first responders and notably reaching out to fbi director, james comey, a lightening rod for handling of the clinton e-mail investigation. >> he's become more famous than me. >> reporter: hours old, the trump administration is drawing battle lines. making his debut in the white house briefing room, sean spicer didn't unveil executive actions. instead, unleashed on the media, accusing reporters of misrespecting the size of last week's innaug crowd. >> this was the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period. >> reporter: it compares the
spectators for trump, to the 1.8 million spectators that witnessed the obama inauguration in 2009. >> this is shameful and wrong. >> reporter: the issue of enthusiasm, a sticking point for team trump, that said the president was given a mandate, by the american people, despite losing the popular vote by nearly 3 million. manage the claims that floor coverings were used for the first time, highlighting empty spaces. this photo shows coverings four years ago. kellyanne conway defended spicer's answers. >> why did he do that? it undermines the credibility of the entire white house press office on day one. >> no, it doesn't. don't be overly dramatic, chuck. you say it's a falsehood. and they're giving sean spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that. >> ail trntive facts? alternative facts? four of five facts he uttered
were not true. alternative facts are not facts. they're falsehoods. >> reporter: conway reversed course on a campaign promise that trump would release his tax returns after an audit. >> i'm under a routine audit. it will be released. >> the white house response is he's not going to release his tax returns. we litigated this all through the election. people didn't care. they voted for him. >> reporter: not in dispute this morning, the massive crowds that followed the inauguration, at saturday's women's march. from l.a., to chicago, to paris. more than a million demonstrators worldwide. >> this is peaceful. people are happy. people are thrilled to be here and excited. >> reporter: on twitter, president trump dismissed the rallies. was under the impression we just had the election. why didn't these people vote? less than two hours later, praising the protests as a hallmark of our democracy. mr. trump is also taking heat from former cia director, john brennan, from his trip to the
central intelligence agency. >> i love you. i respect you. there's nobody i respect more. >> reporter: the president blamed the media, calling reports of friction with the agency, a fabrication. >> they made it sound like i had a feud with the intelligence community. >> reporter: a claim that ignores his own words earlier this month, including a blistering comparison, while accusing the intelligence community of unleaking unverified, lewd information about him. >> i think it's a disgrace. i say that, and i say that, and that's nothing that nazi germany would have done and did do. >> reporter: trump acknowledged he was speaking in a special place. but critics took issue with trump, who touted himself. >> trust me. i'm a smart person. >> reporter: former director brennan tore into trump, for a despicable displayself
self-aizemeself- self-aggrandizeme self-aggrandizement. concern among senior republicans. >> do you have confidence in president trump? >> do not know because he has made so many comments that are continue districtry. i think the point that he has nominated these individuals is an encouraging sign. >> reporter: president trump will meet with the british prime minister here at the white house. he will hold meetings with the canadian and mexican leaders to renegotiate nafta. that's one campaign promise. one of the things behind the west wing, the big corner office will go to reince priebus. but the small office closest to the oval, will go to donald trump's son-in-law, jared kushner. let's bring in mark halperin. expected to see a change in tone, from president donald trump towards the media. that is not the case. how would you sum up the
weekend? >> some good moments, completely overshadowed by the worst instincts of donald trump and the people around him. he's going to run a different presidency. he's not going to be an establishment president. but the things they did, the falsehoods from the white house podium, himself from the cia, are things that must be corrected for himself, and the world. the presidency cannot be based on petty lies. >> the faighting over the facts. and now, a new term, alternative facts. they're part of a bigger problem, aren't they? they're about quantity and judging scope of enthusiasm and ratings and polling. there is an inherent insecurity in this, isn't there? >> donald trump, we've seen it throughout his career. he's obsessed with how he comes across. it's fine in a presidential candidate. during the transition, it's troubling. in a president, it will be destructive to his agenda if he doesn't understand the reality that he needs to build support,
not defend moments of weakness with lies. >> today begins a day of action, as he's calling it. and he's got to move forward on the promises that he's made to repeal obamacare. and he's meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers. what is the goal here if he's trying to bring the democrats into the fold. >> as troubling as some of the things over the weekend were, we've seen things get off to slow starts. bill clinton's administration had the same kind of problems, getting distracted on small things. today is a day, the first full weekday, he can focus on things. changing the way health care is going to be administered by the government. thinking of building a bipartisan coalition. he attacked the marchers over the weekend, he sent a horrible message, if he wants to be the president for everyone. today is the day when he can build on the second tweet peter cited, where he said people have a right to protest. >> newt gingrich chimed in and said if he keeps us safe for the
first two years, that's just noise. >> we don't know that in sthort term. he will be judged by how they build those goals. they can't do it the way they did it over the weekend. but today is a new day. let's turn to al roker. he is back. >> quiet from texas to the midwest. but heavy snow in the rockies. and the latest of a big storm in california. california. we'll look at pb&j. it's just pb&j. unless you make it right. then it becomes a sandwich as mighty as it is humble. easier to make than a mistake. as simple as a sunny day, but just as perfect. when you make a pb&j with smucker's, that's the difference between ordinary everyday and exquisitely delicious in an everyday sort of way. because with a name like smucker's, it has to be good.
