7:03 am
is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump used his first white house tv interview to hit many familiar targets. the president condemned chicago's violence and illegal voting, and he defended a crackdown on illegal immigration. >> the president visited the department of homeland security yesterday and signed two executive orders on immigration, including a measure to go ahead with the wall on the border with mexico. major garrett is at the white house where the president will use his pen again this afternoon. >> reporter: good morning. the president is expected today to instruct federal agencies to temporarily halt the flow of refugees into the united states until tougher screening, something mr. trump called extreme vetting on the campaign trail, is put in place. now, that process of taking words spoken at campaign rallies and translating them into action here at the white house, a big theme of the president's prime time television appearce
7:04 am
problems, believe me. i know what the problems are. >> reporter: in his first televise the white house interview, president trump took a hard line on key domestic and foreign policy issues. >> you can't have thousands of people being shot in a city, in a country that i happen to be president of. >> reporter: mr. trump compared the city of chicago to a war zone, saying he will deploy federal aid if the city's mayor doesn't stop the killings. >> this year, which has just started, is worse than last year, which was a catastrophe. they're not doing the job. >> reporter: on obamacare, the president offered few details on his plan to rewrite the law but said ideally no one will lose their coverage during the transition. >> we want the answer to be known, but i will say millions of people will be happy. right now you have millions and millions and millions of people that are unhappy. >> reporter: the president expressed no remorse about potential global backlash in
7:05 am
immigrants from countries with ties to terrorism. >> the world is a mess. the world is as angry as it gets. what, you think this is going to cause a little more anger? the world is an angry place. >> reporter: offering little details, mr. trump also insisted mexico will pay for a wall on the u.s. border, except american taxpayers will be the first to foot the bill. >> i never said they're going to pay for it from the start. i said mexico will pay for the wall. >> reporter: late last night, the mexican president said he was against mr. trump's decision to move forward with the wall, and mexico will not be paying for it. >> we've been talking about this right from the beginning. >> reporter: during a visit to security yesterday, mr. trump signed two executive orders. one to begin planning for construction of that wall. >> a nation without borders is not a nation. >> reporter: the other action allows federal agents to target undocumented ira
7:06 am
seeks to cut federal funding to so-called sanctuary cities. >> the day is over when they can stay in our country and wreak havoc. >> reporter: sanctuary cities like new york, boston, san francisco, seattle, los angeles do not arrest or detain people living in the country illegally. gayle, legal challenges to this white house threat of withholding federal funds have already been promised. >> and that's what we're talking about right now. thank you, major. the mayors of sanctuary cities say they'll defy president trump's executive order. hundreds of cities and counties around the country protect undocumented immigrants. they received millions of dollars in federal grants last year. the president's order aims to cut off that funding. the mayor of boston offered to shelter immigrants in city hall, if necessary. california's attorney general says the order violates constitutional and legal standards. president trump also talked last night about bringing back so-called enhanced interrogation for terror suspects. >> i have spoken as recently as
7:07 am
highest level of intelligence. i asked them the question, does it work? does torture work? the answer was yes, absolutely. >> the president said we have to fight fire with fire. on torture, mr. trump said he would rely on the advice of his secretary of defense, james mattis, who has taken a dim view of such tactics. protesters gathered in philadelphia where the president and vice president mike pence will meet with republican lawmakers today. nancy cortes is in philadelphia where the gop congressional retreat is focusing on the party's priorities. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. nearly all congressional republicans are here. they share a big agenda with the president, and they're eager to discuss it with him today. but they're also more than a little uneasy about these reports that he wants to review and possibly modify the nation's torture laws. >> with respect to torture, that's
7:08 am
>> reporter: south dakota senator john thune was one of many republicans win who showed no interest in reinstating harsh interrogation tactics. >> i think it would take a change in the law, and congress is on record opposing that. >> reporter: but candidate donald trump was an enthusiastic proponent. >> i'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than water boarding. >> reporter: there are some in congress who subscribe to his view, like new gop congresswoman liz cheney, whose father championed the use of enhanced interrogation when he was vice president. >> so i do support enhanced interrogation. i think that it's something that clearly has helped us in the past to prevent attacks and save lives. >> reporter: republican lawmakers came to philadelphia to strategize on their top priorities, like replacing obamacare and cutting taxes. so the torture talk has been a distraction, as has mr. trump's call for a major investigation into voter fraud he insists cost him the popular vo
7:09 am
>> of those votes cast, none of them come to me. but when you look at the people that are registered, dead, illegal, and two states and some cases maybe three states, we have a lot to look into. >> reporter: many republicans here reject that unfounded claim. >> very important that people have confidence in the elections. >> reporter: congressman jason chaffetz, who would normally spearhead such a probe, told reporters, i just don't see any evidence of it. the oversight committee is not planning to do anything with it. there is a lot the president is doing that republicans here are thrilled about. they love that he's keeping his campaign promises to unravel obamacare, cut regulations, and build that border charli charlie, they're still a little unclear about the details. >> thanks, nancy. cbs news senior national security analyst fran townsend is here. good mng
7:10 am
about enhanced interrogation. the president said within the last 24 hours he talked to people who said yes, in fact, it does work. torture does work. on the other hand, you have general mattis who says that there are other ways that are better, and you have mike pompeo, the new cia director, suggesting he's in the in favor of some of these things. what is the president going to do? >> well, you know, it's a good question, charlie. first and foremost, we ought to remind our viewers, enhanced interrogation techniques are not legal. regardless of whatever the president thinks of torture, enhanced interrogation techniques, he can't implement it without congress. >> let's understand what we mean by enhanced interrogation. >> sure. water boarding. that's the technique most, i think, americans think of when they think enhanced interrogation techniques, torture. >> is sleep denial enhanced interrogation? >> what you have to look back to is the army field manual. if it's permitted by the army field manual, it's legal and you can do it. if it's not in the army field manual, it is most likely prohibited by the legiio
7:11 am
passed by congress. i think that we should -- to the extent this upsets and worries americans, our allies around the world, it's not legal now and cannot be reinstituted or begun anew without new legislation. >> and there's no support in congress. >> none. on either side of the aisle. >> there's also a leaked document -- >> senator mccain too. >> correct. there's also a leaked document that the trump administration is considering, opening up these sites where the torture occurred. what's the purpose of sending these messages on these things, coming from the president of the united states? >> you know, it's interesting. one, even a leaked document, it's not clear that they're leaked from the current administration. there are some reports this goes back to an old romney draft and changes these black sites. the other thing about black sites is you have to find countries that are willing to host them. by the way, there have been
7:12 am
lawsuits, there have been governments toppled over having hosted these. it's not clear you could even find, if you wanted to go back, find countries willing to host them. >> let's talk about building the wall in mexico, which we're now learning we would have to pay for first and then get reimbursed. mexico has made it clear that's not going to happen. is there anything to suggest that building a wall at mexico will make america safer? >> gayle, i think it's clear that the more complicated you make it for people to enter illegally, the more discouraging it is, right. fewer people will cross. it is true to say that every nation's got the right to control its own borders. but i mean, i will tell you in 2006, a decade ago when the law passed by congress, we sort of forced on the bush administration, president bush signed it into law, we found it to be very difficult. we shouldn't assume any wall is going to be purely bricks and mortar. you're going to use technology, find ways to discourage people from trying to enter illegally. >> hiring more security guards. >> absolutely.
7:13 am
trump has said. they're going to increase the size of border patrol. that will certainly be part of this plan. >> and extreme vetting is another thing. >> we don't really know what that is, charlie. president obama also had a stand down in issuing visas and allows refugees in to strengthen the vetting process. i think what president trump is doing is similar to what president obama did. he's going to look at the process and he's going to increase the vetting to the extent you're able to. >> thank you very much. >> sure. a member of congress is defending her decision to meet with syria's president during an unannounced trip to the middle east. the democrat confirmed the meeting with president bashar al assad in an interview yesterday. she said it took place during a week-long visit to the region that included damascus, aleppo, and beirut. jan crawford shows us how the congresswoman has put herself in the middle of a major foreign policy challenge. jan, good morning. >> good morning. the senator's office is calling her visit to
7:14 am
fact-finding mission. it was privately funded and planned. a lot of details aren't available. as for that meeting with assad, gabbert says it was impromptu. >> the rest of your children are okay? >> reporter: that's u.s. congresswoman gabbert on the ground in syria as the country's civil war stretches into its sixth year. she toured a hospital with victims of the syrian conflict and spoke with religious leaders. but it was her meeting with president bashar al assad that has her colleagues asking questions. >> whatever you think about president assad, the fact is that he is the president of syria. >> reporter: on wednesday, gabbert defended her meeting with the syrian president. >> when the opportunity arose to meet with him, i did so because i felt it's important. if there's a possibility that we could achieve peace, and that's exactly what we talked about. >> reporter: gabbert, an iraq war veteran and a democrat, has consiste
7:15 am
in syria of arming rebel forces. >> so long as assad is there, we cannot achieve that kind of stability inside of syria. >> reporter: republican congressman adam kinzinger spoke out on facebook. to say i'm disgusted would be an understatement. by meeting with the mass murderer of syria, bashar al assad, gabbert has -- >> reporter: democratic leadership was unable to confirm any details. >> she hasn't reported anything to our office, as far as i know. >> reporter: as of this morning, we don't know how gabbert's trip to syria was financed. last november she met with president trump during his transition to discuss foreign policy, including american-syrian policy. gayle? >> jan, thank you. mary tyler moore is being remembered as a television pioneer who
7:16 am
are portrayed. the beloved actress and comedian died yesterday. she was 80 years old. moore won seven emmys in a career that spanned more than six decades. she was a star who let others shine and inspired a generation of working women. >> you've got spunk. >> well -- >> i hate spunk! >> reporter: from the very first episode of the mary tyler moore show, moore's character, mary richards, embodied the qualities audiences grew to love, including an independence seldom seen from women on tv at the time. a single, career-driven woman, juggling life at work and at home. >> read it. all right. >> out loud! >> reporter: she played a successful female lead in a male-dominated industry, and women everywhere took notice. >> when she threw her hat in the
7:17 am
air, she liberated all the women. i think women applauded her all over the country and all over the world. >> you're not allowed to ask that. >> reporter: she stood up for herself and her friends. she faced life with humor and a very human vulnerability. >> i'm not so different from her. i think there's a lot of us -- a lot about us that is similar. >> what? >> we're earnest. we mean well. >> reporter: america first noticed moore's comedic skills on the dick van dike show. her portrayal earned her the first of seven emmy awards. the show ree's creator was also occasional co-star. >> i had seen actually 23 different ladies to play dick van dike's wife. the first line she read, i said there was a pain in her voice that got to
7:18 am
it hit me. >> reporter: moore tapped into an emotional honesty and intensity with her dramatic turn in the 1980 film "ordinary people." >> what have i done to make you so angry with me? >> it's not what you've done. it's what you think i've done. >> reporter: she was nominated for an academy award playing beth, a repressed mother mourning the death of a favorite son. >> there is a part of me that was, is like beth -- >> which part? >> expectations, perfectionism, loathe to communicate any failings. >> reporter: the brooklyn-born actress found success on broadway, and in 2013 reunited with her mary tyler moore cast mates on the cable show "hot in cleveland." for her, it was all about making people smile. >> of all the things you've done, you're proudest of what? >> i guess it would have to be "the mary tyler moore show." >> it would have to be, wouldn't it. >> i think so. so many people
7:19 am
on a serious level how appreciative they were of that series and what it did for them at the time, how it allowed them to stay home on a saturday night and be okay not having a date because it was all right for mary. >> that's so true. i loved her and love that show. you knew her well, charlie. >> i did. she also lived with diabetes and was a very, very strong supporter of doing foundation stuff for diabetes. she was -- you understand this much more than i do. she defined what it meant to be a woman. >> she was a pioneer. a pioneer, a feminist icon. >> she had values and class. in our next hour, we'll talk to tv legend dick van dike about his long-time friend mary tyler moore. that's ahead.qo tonight, a prime time special celebrating the live of mary tyler moore. we'll feature more of charlie's conversations with her and talk with oprah. it's no secret how oprah has felt about mary tyler moore over the years. that's at

t"the wall street journal" reports on north korean defectors, saying kim jong-un's days are numbers. a former am bad door spoke out for the first time. she said the only way to resolve the nuclear issue on the korean peninsula is to eliminate kim. he predicted a popular uprising against the regime. the defector said new technology has broken the government's grip on the flow of information to its people. "the los angeles times" reports on plans by billionaire elon musk to reduce traffic in l.a. last month the tesla ceo tweeted he was going to build a machine to dig a tunnel because traffic was, well, driving him nuts. yesterday he gave an update and said there's a plan to start digging in a month or so, but the city's bureau of engineering said it has not received any permit applications for a tunnel. bloomberg news reports on target's plan to disclose what chemicals are in products on its shelves. the retailer will push vendors to remove dangerous chemicals and list all ingredients. the company

much as $5 million within five years on green chemistry. walmart launched a similar effort last july. and "usa today" reports on efforts to keep fake news out of its trending topics. all users will see the same stories. the focus will be on widely reported news stories. each item will include the report's headline and the publisher. one of president trump's signature campaign promises is one step closer to reality today. he signed an executive order yesterday directing the homeland security department to allocate funds for a wall along the mexican border. he also wants the department to complete a comprehensive security study within the next 180 days. we're along the texas border to show the resources needed for this massive construction project. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i'm standing in mexico. our cameraman is on the u.s. side in laredo, texas. and in between us, as you can see, is the rio grande, a
7:34 am
natural barrier that can deter border crossers. but it could also make building a wall here very difficult. walling off the rio grande would require building on its flood plane. right now the river is about 20 to 30 feet bovr more above norm. >> we have a water plant that borders the river area. >> reporter: laredo mayor met with then-candidate trump when he visited the city in 2015. on wednesday, he said erecting a wall around laredo was, quote, offensive. >> it serves as a negative psychological impact on people that visit our city. can you imagine having a city with a huge wall there? it's not very inviting. it's very divisive. >> reporter: the nearly 2,000-mile-long southern border is already protected by almost 700 miles of fencing. it costs more than $2 billion to build. for vast stretches, it is an
7:35 am
other sections do little to stop people. and where it abruptly ends, it's easy enough to step around it. the president wants to replace that hodgepodge fencing with a concrete wall spanning virtually the entire border. mr. trump has said his plan will cost $8 billion to $12 billion. analysts peg the figure at $15 billion to $40 billion. critics say that money is better spent on more technology, equipment, and manpower. >> he built a higher wall, something will build a higher ladder. what you need on the border in order to ensure security is more border patrol agents. >> reporter: parts of the wall would have to be built on private property or on very harsh terrain. a solid barrier would also make it difficult to see border crossers on the other side. even trump's new homeland security secretary, general john kelly, says a wall alone would not do the job. >> if you were to build a wall from the pacific to the gulf of mexico, you'd still have to
7:36 am
that wall up with patrolling by human beings, by sensors, by observation devices. >> reporter: president trump has also pledged to hire 5,000 additional border agents, pending congressional funding. as for the proposed wall, the mayor of laredo believes it sends the wrong message about trade with mexico, which is vital for border communities like his. laredo, he says, does more than $200 billion worth of trade with people on this side of the border. nor norah? >> wow. that's really interesting. >> great piece. >> really good piece. great reporting. thank you. it's a complicated issue. >> my cameraman's in mexico, i'm in the u.s. >> there you go. now to this story. the chief of pharmaceutical giant mylan is speaking out in an exclusive interview. for the first time, they opened their doors to the 1 million square foot manufacturing plant. it's the largest in america. ceo heather bresch

and i'm fortunate to have a company, a foundation, a family of 35,000 employees that are doing what we're doing every day to provide that kind of access and affordability. what i realized and what i went through this summer, epipen was a window into a broken system. what i've conveyed, and i believe the discussion continues to validate, this isn't an epipen problem. this is a health care problem. >> we'll have more of my interview with mylan ceo heather bresch tomorrow. >> looking forward to it. you said, you took it on the chin. yes, i did, inviting change. interesting. >> this fight is not over. she's going to be at the forefront. scientists are measuring how close we could come to the end of civilization. ahead, the factors that may influence them to move up the metaphor call minutes on that doomsday clock we all hear about. we'll be right back. ht six of you for when you stretch out. i want you to stay this bright blue forever,

weapons. last night president trump said having the nuclear codes is sobering and scary, but he's confident he will make the right decisions. the clock sits at three minutes to midnight. the 12:00 hour represents the destruction of human civilization. the bulletin of the atomic scientist magazine first set the clock 70 years ago. it's been adjusted 21 times since. chris van cleave is at the national press club in washington, where we'll find out if time is changing again. chris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that announcement will come in the building behind us. the doomsday clock is not a physical clock so much as it is an effort by a group of very smart people to express how close they think we are to ending life on the planet as we know it, factoring in nuclear weapons and climate change. >> we're talking about a metaphor. we're not literally minutes from the end of the world. >> well, it is a metaphor, but we are literally minutes away from a nuclear
7:44 am

8:04 am
it is good news. i'd rather be at 20,000 than 10,000, but it's not the whole story. >> there's also the fact that if there's tax reform,there's $2 trillion overseas. if some of that money comes back, what will those companies do with it? >> that's a great point. i see three big issues that have driven the market higher since the election day. one is exactly that. tax reform on the corporate level. let's say these companies bring their money back. are they going to build lots of big factories? probably not. might they hire some people? maybe. what could they do? they could deliver more money to their shareholders in the form of dividends. we have more money, we'll reward our shareholders. if there's personal tax reform, that might actually help wealthier people rather than the middle class. those people will plow money into the stock market. and two other issues that are important, infrastructure spending helps materials companies. if we get infrastructure spending, that could actually drive companies higher. and the last thing, look at regulatory reform. th b

since election day, goldman sachs. if they're going to water down dodd-frank or change financial regulations, that's going to help banks, could help oil and gas companies as well. >> there are a lot of people that don't have stocks. are there implications beyond the stock market? >> well, i think that this is a really important point. according to gallup, just 52% of americans own stock, either through their own means, through a retirement plan, through pension plans. these people might be looking at 20,000 and say who cares. but if we do see the economy improve and pick up steam, if more of these people can get jobs, change jobs more easily, and see bigger wage increases, that could be good. >> can donald trump take credit? he's very proud of the number. >> well, he can take credit for the last 9% of the dow. really, he came in after the indexes had already risen. look at the dow jones industrial average. it's up about 250%, if you include the dividends, since the bottom of march of 2009.
8:06 am
until election day. this last 9%, we can see whether that trump bump will continue, but that's trump's part of it. the rest of it is really the legacy of the obama administration and just the general economic recovery. >> thanks, jill. mary tyler moore is being remembered as a pioneer. the seven-time emmy winner died yesterday at the age of 80. her big break came when she was cast on the dick van dyke show. then in 1970, it was her name on the screen on "the mary tyler moore show." ♪ who can turn the the world on with her smile ♪ >> a lot of people know the words to that song. mary richards moore played a single woman focused on her career. the show was very funny but also gave a boost to feminism. it was one of the first shows to feature a woman succeeding in a male-dominated world. ellen degeneres

8:15 am
and rodgers and thought we were the best comedy team. >> dick van dyke, she was 23 years old when that series started. did you two click right away, or did the chemistry take some time? >> it was kind of surprising. she had kind of a mid-atlantic acce accent. kind of a katherine hepburn. i thought, gosh, she's beautiful, but do you think she can do comedy. it was amazing how quickly she picked it up. such good timing. in no time, she had us laughing. i had the chance to watch her grow from 23 to who she became on that show. she was the best there ever was. >> i know you said that we changed each other's lives for the better. how did she change your life? >> as i said, i didn't know i could sing and dance. she knew she could. the chemistry
8:16 am
between us was just serendipity. we became an improv. we could almost read each other's minds. it was like going to a party every morning. >> did she appreciate the symbol and the role that came to her, the role model that came to her because of the mary tyler moore show? >> oh, i'm sure. she felt that responsibility, but she knew that she was an inspiration to a lot of young women. that show was -- thank god she fell into the hands of the people she did. they knew what to do with it. >> think about this, dick van dyke. she was in two series in two different decades, two ground-breaking roles, both times. how do you think she was able to do that and pull that off so well from what you know about her? >> well, it's always been my feeling that tan

was really kind of a training ground for what was to happen later. she learned comedy timing and she learned -- by the time she hit that show, she knew what she was doing. and she always had a talent as an actress, but i don't know, she just found herself on that show. it was wonderful to see. >> dick, what's the secret to this long and happy life you've had? >> cryogenics, drugs. no, i keep moving. i have to keep moving. that and good genes. >> i'm telling you, dick, we were marveling about you in the studio. you're 91 years old. we can still see the sparkle and twinkle in your eye. it's really great to see, honestly. >> oh, thank you. i'm still dancing. >> that's the secret, dancing. >> charlie, i always wanted to be interviewed by you, but not long distance like is

retail. right now time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the san francisco chronicle reports on team usa winning the world's most prestigious cooking competition. for the first time in the contest's 30-year history, the united states won the competition in france. chef thomas keller is the president of team usa. two veteran chefs led the team. they prepared a chicken and shellfish dish and a vegan dish. >> we're not surprised chef keller was there. that's good eating. and "the new york times" cites researchers who say people are happier when they get up and move around. clearly judd hirsch believes that. the study used cell phone data to track activities and corresponding moods. the findings add to the considerable body of evidence that links physical activity and positive mental health. decisions that shaped the united kingdom have been made in the historic parliament building for hundreds of s,
8:32 am
are major flaws hiding behind its gran yoes walls. an investigation found parts of the structure are badly affected by asbestos crumbling, stonework, and old wiring. we got a rare look behind the scenes at the world's heritage site. he joins us from london with the work that needs to be done to save it. jonathan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and it's your typical day here in london, which is to say it's cold and overcast. but that likely won't stop thousands of tourists from coming here to take photos of parliament. it's one of the most photographed buildings in the world. from the outside, it is beautiful, but as we saw first hand on the inside, it's literally falling apart. the palace of westminster sits on the banks of london's famous river. its neogothic structure has been called the gingerbread house on the thames. but within its walls are two historic houses. the house of lords and the house of commons are the seats of
8:33 am
government. it's led britain into war -- >> we shall fight on the beaches. >> reporter: and will soon determine its path out of the european union. the palace was almost lost to a great fire in 1834 and narrow he survived the blitz during world war ii. >> big ben refused to stop working for a second, even if his hands did shake a bit. >> reporter: but neglect may finally do what hitler's bombs could not. >> if this was somebody else's house, it would have been pulled down by now. >> reporter: chris bryant, a member of parliament who's part of the $4.5 billion restoration project, thinks westminster doesn't just need to save nearly a thousand years of history, it needs to be brought into the modern world. you want to keep it standing for another thousand years or so. >> i want to keep it standing, but i also want it to be a building that works for the 21st century, the 22nd century. that does mean some changes. >> reporter: much like the views from on top of
8:34 am
task of repairing this palace is simply breathtaking. sure, after centuries, the roof may be leaking and a bit rusty, but it's nothing compared to the problems that lie beneath this hood. westminster has never been fully refurbished since the fire of 1834. although, it has been modernized along the way. but every time new technology came in, the old stuff stayed in place. palace engineer andy piper thinks they've been layering on band-aids for too long. >> all this needs to be replaced and come out. >> that goes up several feet. >> it does. it's like reverse archaeology. at the bottom is the newest stuff. >> so this is 2017. so what does that make all the way up there? >> you start probably 1950. but there's stuff here that's 130 years old. >> wow. >> so you know, anything from 130 down to 2017. >> reporter: and nearly 200 years down
8:35 am
