he'll keep the parts that are really popular, being able to get insurance even if you have a pre-existing condition. keeping children on parent's care until they're 26. same thing about the wall, we already have a good bit of wall along our southern border, does rest of it? i think he's going to pick and choose and do the things he thinks the voters really care about in their day-to-day lives as opposed to these big campaign statements. >> cokie, we talked about these positions, 4,000 positions that trump needs to fill. now the washington post reporting this morning he's eyeing new hampshire senator --
is this a sign he's willing to surround himself with people that he doesn't always agree with? >> kelly's a real loss to the senate, she's able to go across party lines and get things done and the fact that he's thinking about her does show you there might be an outreach beyond his inner circle, as you such a part of that. he has to get beyond that immediate group. so, whether that includes people who have disagreed with him, look, he sat down with the president the other day the two of them could not have been harsher about each other and came out saying glowing things and maybe we're seeing a more
donald trump. >> not much time has e lapsed. we'll see how things progressed. we're really at this contentious point in american history. i'm curious, given your experience covering politics, what would you say to americans pinning some hope on this president and those fearing dread on this new president. >> you wonder how these protesters voted. but the fact do something to speak to the people who are angry and frightened, particularly to the immigrant community, the muslim community and these horrific stories we're hearing about kids being harassed in schools. he needs to actually stand up publicly and say something, make some kind of gesture that he disapproves of this and he's reaching out to the people who are frightened in the country.
excited for a while. just the notion they did it. they won. they beat the odds. they told all the smart washington types that we were all wrong and so i think they'll stay with a sense of excitement. and if he can do something quick, like an infrastructure peop part, people go to work right away happy. >> thank you, cokie. across the southeast, battles are going on right now to get a handle on a dozen of wildfires that are burning. arson is suspected in several of them with a reward being offered to find those responsible and rob is here with the latest and how long people will be waiting for relief. >> reporter: a drought emergency in many areas in the southeast.
