♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ two days to go. the countdown is on president obama held his press conference from the white house briefly room for the last time. as you can see from the run down, we want you guys to joint conversation, use #5at630. tweet us and let us know what's on your mind >> we're under two days away from the 58th presidential inauguration. today, president-elect donald trump is in new york, that is not of him that is new york governor andrew cuomo. that's who he met with today. they focused on issues concerning new york state including cuomo's ambitious plans to input grade and rebuild br
airports in new york city and around the state and also the they talked about the affordable care act >> he was knowledgeable about the issues on the affordable care act. my sense was he understood exactly what i was saying. and the magnitude of what i was saying, 3 million insured people would be a problem. we talked about state control. and to me, it's more a question of resources as long as the federal government is providing the resources, so we make sure the progress we've made isn't lost >> the trump administration has been cleared that repealing the affordable care act has been a priority and a republican led congress has already got the ball rolling on that. the president-elect will be back in washington, dc tomorrow. trump and vice president elect pence are scheduled to participate in a wrench laying ceremony at arlington national cemetery. he will deliver remarks at a concert at the linc couldn't memorial
the night at blair house which is the presidential guest residence across the street from the white house. president obama held his final press conference and talked about the words we've talk heard so much lately, fake news >> there's a reason we're the only country among advanced democracy that makes it harder to vote goes directly back to jim crow and the legacy of slavery. this whole notion of voting fraud this is something that is constantly been disapproved, this is fake news tom fitzgerald joins us live with more on this one. this was not a see you guys later. he got into heavy topics. >> reporter: typically these last presidential news conferences usually amount to some sort of victory lap. the out going
it's president obama or bill clinton or george w bush they come out and talk about the previous administration, they talk about what they think their legacy will be but you know, most of all, what they talks about what they think they've accomplished and president obama was faced with was not just this kind of legacy of talking about the last eight years, he was met with real news issues, just in the last 24 hour, we have the situation where he commuted the sentence of army private chelsea manning. manning had been serving 35 year sentence, was in prison for leaking military information to wikileaks. then the president yesterday cuts the sentence down. he's going to get out in may. he was asked about this right out of the gate tonight. the press didn't waste any time. the president said, in his determination he looked at this, he had studied it. he said he looked at it.
ultimately, the president said on his own, he decided that chelsea manning served enough time >> the sentence that she received was very disproportion it relative to what other leakers had received. and that she had served a significant amount of time. that it makes sense to commute and not pardon her sentence. . >> reporter: now, what was remarkable about that was there are widespread reports in the city that this decision was made over the objection of defense secretary ash carter and some of the president's top military people. so if that bears out, the president has made remarkable decision here to possibly go against the advice of some of his top military advisors. russia came into this in a big
way. we've been talking for weeks now about russian influence in this election, what they did or did not do in connection with influencing this election in regards to what happened with those clinton e-mails. well, the president, as you know two weeks ago, put the sanctions in, expelled a bunch of diplomats, he made a pitch to donald trump to keep these sanctions in place. what he said was this didn't really have anything to do as much with the election as it did with what he said was russia's influence in ukraine. so listen to this new argument they had here today. >> i think it's important just to remember that the reason sanctions have been put in place against russia has to do with their actions in ukraine, and it is important for the united states to stand up for the basic principle that big countries don't go around and invade and bully smaller countries.
>> reporter: the president also referenced to the fact that democrats say on congressional reasons that they're going to be boycotting the trump inauguration, he says, he is going to be here, he wish the press core luck and that was it. we cover the president's first prime time press conference inside the white house back in march, 2009. jim and shawn i can tell you that night the president was very quick to his answers, some answers got him into trouble. especially that night when he, said that the police acted stupidly at harvard university. one thing i noticed, the president's answers over the years have gotten much slower, and that proved to be the case tonight. carefully considering every word right up until the end today. >> got to think before you speak. >> thank you, he fitz. a lot of talk about the women's march on washington happening this saturday. it's expected some 200,000 people will be there >>
tonight, tamika, thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you so much for having me. >> let me ask you off the bat, first off, what is the ultimate goal of this march? did you ever expect to it grow to be this huge movement nationwide? >> i think the goal of this march is to bring together diverse groups of people, some folks who have not been involved in sort of the movement at all. they haven't really been out, you know, advocating for any particular causes, especially not on this level and we're giving them an opportunity to gather together with other like-minded individuals. and really to hear sort of an inspirational word about how to go forward, how to proceed during these times. what is the platform for which, you fall under? where is your passion and how can we help facilitate your engagement in that area? in terms of whether or not we expected it to grow to this point, we knew from
soon as i was called, which was two days after the initial invitation went out by teresa shook, a woman in hawaii, by the time that went out, we knew that it was going to be big. but we had no idea that it would become what it is today. and we're quite, you know, happy that people are getting involved, but telling folks don't be two excited because we got a lot of work to do on january 22'nd >> this seems like it's giving a voice to people who did not have a voice, there's a lot of people that look at this and say it's just about saying no to donald trump. what do you say to people that says it's an anti-trump event >> it's called the march on washington. we know all the halls of power are here in washington, dc. and so we will be gathering not just to address donald trump, which, of course, he and his administration is a clear concern. also the senate, also the congress. also our supreme court.
message back to local governors and local district attorney that is women's rights are human rights and we're carrying the entire family on our backs. we care about everyone in our community. we care about the lgbt, qia community, climate justice, racial justice, reproductive rights. we care about all the issues that are happening in our communities and we're going to be advocating for that on saturday >> let me ask you because there has been a little concern. there was a group we talked to who said the new wave feminist, group, a nonprofit pro life organization told us we were removed from your website as a partner and told they were not allowed to march with you guys. here's what they had to say earlier. >> well, certain people at the march obviously are going to disagree with the stance, we felt like we brought a unique voice and opinion to the march. ultimately, that is what they should be creating. i mean, this
inclusion of thoughts 10 and ideas, how can we represent the full spectrum of women and their belief even if we disagree be empowered by the dialogue and the exchange of ideas. >> i guess we want get your response, they say they were told they could not participate when they say they want to march with the women's march on the 21 it's. >> well, first of all, our platform is very clear. we are pro choice, that has been our platform from day one. if you go to women's march.com, right now, you will see that in our principles, it states that we are pro choice, that that is, you know, really the foundation for which, you know, our platform stands on. however, we have not told anyone that they cannot march with us. that information is clearly just not true. it's not factual. anyone who wants to come to this march who supports our issues is open to be there, they're welcome to come. >> they just were removed from the website but welcome to mch
