>> what's the reaction from republicans and democrats to this news conference? >> reporter: i think it's one of surprise. it took the halls of congress aback for the hour and 15 minutes it lasted. the hours sense we've seen members of the congressional black caucus react. the president focused on president elijah cummings, he said he would like to set up a meeting with him. the democrats called it terrifying and embarrassing. republicans, for the most part have had a muted reaction. i talked to a number of them who were as well taken aback. one privately said it was unbelievable what unfolded over the course of the afternoon. but, republicans are trying to focus on making sure that they pass big agenda priorities that the president ran on. things like changing the president's healthcare law, rewriting the tax code to try to
4:32 pm
simplify it. i did talk to one republican who is a big part of those initiatives and he said he thought the press conference was about growth and cutting taxes and getting america back to work. >> trump promised voters he would shake up washington. people you have spoken to, do you think he's doing that, what he promised all along? >> reporter: i think it is certainly clear from people that i've known for quite some time in years of covering washington he is definitely shaking up what is going on here in washington. i think the question is, what will this mean for him and for other republicans in the long term? whether this is something -- and the way he's governing is going to make the people who voted for him, especially swing voters be more excited about backing him over the course of the next two years and four years or whether it's going to put some of those swing voters off. you heard in that sound bite you played donald trump talking about how he says his administration is running like a fine tuned machine. there's a perception, especially from other republicans up here
4:33 pm
on capitol hill, that there is some chaos going on that might get in the way. it's going to -- only time will tell whether voters think that that chaos is a bad thing or if it's exactly what you say and it's fulfilling a campaign promise. >> thanks so much. >> reporter: thanks, guys. now to nbc 10 responds, a woman buys a security system. but says she canceled the service when she moved. >> after numerous calls to the company, new resolution, she contacts harry and nbc 10 responds. what happens here? >> when you figure you cancel a service and still getting bill, that can be alarming. she tellsu us for months she's been trying to get this fixed before it affected her credit. >> the area wasn't the best, like the vandalism and the crime, it was time to get a security system. >> the manager sold her the
