amnesty. george w. bush who you worked for attempted comprehensive immigration reform to no avail. what do you think about the prospects of this? >> well, number one i'm always suspect about these first types of leaks from unname officials. you never know if it's true. but i do support a compromise, i'm fine with protecting our borders, but we have to come together and what do you do with the 11 million people who are here. i agree, be aggressive against the gang members and the criminals, but there is a fact that the people who are here did violate the law to get here and should not be given advantage for the people who did wait online or are waiting online. so if there's a compromise that can be reached i think that would be a great result. the democrats insist on citizenship, republicans oppose citizenship. maybe this can be a compromise, let it play out and see. >> president trump grading himself? we don't often hear this where a president would give himself such a clear grade on something. listen to this. this is his interview with fox news. >> now in terms of achievement i t

did not see that with president obama. you didn't see that with president george w. bush. sean spicer tried to say no, that's not -- you know, he was saying george w. bush didn't have it in his statement. abbey phillips of the "washington post" pointed out actually he did. talk about this, this back and forth. the white house says i wasn't an oversight. what's going on here? >> again, sean spicer throughout this press conference effectively tried to downgrade anybody's concerns about what concerned, whether it was on the immigration order or steve bannon being appointed as a principle to the national security council or whether it's this holocaust memo. the holocaust memo was found to be quite offensive by manyi jewish group, including the republican you jewish coalition. and people have spoken write forth rightly about it. i know that sean spicer believes there is no reason that they feel this way, but they do. and he didn't quite acknowledge that they did feel this way. he called the outcry pathetic. but the fact that jews were not mentioned is something that many people took

under ronald reagan and george bush and recently had a job at president trump's state department. first, you have the president of the united states taking to twitter, calling out north korea. it's almost like i've heard some people say it's like this real-life experiment and yet we're in this national security crisis. how do you see it? >> i think rex tillerson said it rightly, 20, 30 years of policy on north korea has failed. that's clear that they are developing the nuclear program. the president is being more aggressive at least in tone and this comes right after the strike on syria. it's meant to push pressure on china, maybe to develop some more and that's been the missing ingredient. >> don't you think president xi walked a i way from mar a lag go from a very different trump? >> absolutely. the timing was quite amazing. the timing was great. >> on syria, president trump thus far has been silent other than this tweet about why he wouldn't want to bomb a runway. how do you see this trump doctrine? do you agree that there isn't one, first of all? >> first, i have to say, my f

deadline. the halt came from this federal judge on friday, james robart appointed by george w. bush. robart's ruling prompting president trump to send a flurry of treats including this one, quote, this opinion of this so-called judge which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country is ridiculous and will be overturned. let's first go to our white house correspondent sarah murray. that was the president's tweet. how has the white house responded formally today. >> we are still waiting to hear any formal comment today. sean spicer is expected to gagwell reporters this afternoon. we may get more then. in the meantime the justice department has until 6:00 p.m. on the to file the government's legal argument why they believe this travel ban should resume. they are likely to take game that this judge dup have -- doesn't have the authority. that should give us a clear notion of how the government prance plans to push back on. that we are likely to hear from sean spicer before that. >> we'll look for the gaggle. sarah murray thank you very much. back hound on the judge who halte

general. the name we are hearing come to the forefront as to slitter general george conway, he is the husband of top trump adviser kellyanne conway. >> lots of moving parts. jessica thank you for updating us. let's dig deeper with dana bash and nia malika henderson. nia, lindsay graham says 99 of 100 senators do belief the russians are behind the hacking of the presidential election. so it begs the question, what does donald trump know, what is he getting from his intelligence briefings that these senators are not? ? >> you know at some point he will get additional intelligence briefings this week as early as today. and then he has promised this big reveal, right, almost like a cliff hanger style of sort of divulging information in terms of how he thinks about. i think the key difference here in terms of where those senators are and where donald trump is is that he feels differently about america's relationship to russia. he sees in the offing a sort of reset in terms of where american policy is towards russia. and we've seen throughout these last many months the things he has said ab

incredible family, incredible wife and family. they say he's the closest thing to general george patton that we have and it's about time. it's about time. >> okay, let me bring in national political correspondent karen tumulty who co-wrote this "washington post" piece about the right look that trump may be looking for. it was a great read, a fascinating read, you and phillip rucker writing this. it talked about a lot of his appointees have a certain look. how do you mean? >> well, as he's trying to figure out mo who can do the job, it helps in donald trump's book if the candidate actually looks the part and don't forget one of his knocks on hillary clinton during the campaign was that she didn't have a presidential look and that people would want that look. so not only in his own comments, but in -- people around him both on the record and on background say that if somebody has the look that he imagines in the particular role that he is casting, it gives them a real leg up which helps explain why for instance secretary of state came down to mitt romney and rex tillerson, both of

, gerald ford, jimmy carter, ronald reagan, george h.w. bush, bill clinton, george w. bush, and now barack obama since 1967, the only president who didn't have one israeli palestinian related security council resolution pass during his tenure is barack obama. so our vote today is fully in line with the bipartisan history of how american presidents have approached both the issue and the role of this body one would think it would be a routine vote for the u.s. to allow the passage of a resolution with the elements in this one reaffirming the long-standing u.s. position on settlements, condemning violence and incitement and calling for parties to start taking steps to reduce trends on the ground. these are well articulated components of u.s. policy but in reality this vote for us was not straightforward because of where it is taking place at the united natio nations. the simple truth is that as long as israel has been a member of this institution israel has been treated differently from other nations at the united nations. and not only in decades past -- such as the resolution the gene

in 1972 with george mcgovern. you saw it in 1980 with ronald reagan where he brought in religious voters and brought in urban voters who were part of a new deal coalition. so it's very possible that what we're seeing in donald trump is a new change in the complex and the character of the republican party, bringing in new voters, and maximizing kind of the white working class voters who have always been a part. but a neglected part of the republican coalition. if that happens then the party of reagan and george w. bush will probably cease to exist as we know it. after this election. >> which is what is making a lot of establishment republicans shake. matthew, thank you so much with the washington free beacon editor in chief. thank you. and a reminder as we mentioned the big debate in vegas four days away. it is tuesday, december 15th. 6:00 and 8:30 p.m. right here on cnn >>> coming up next we have to show you these pictures here. these divers, fbi, what they just found in the water where investigators have been looking for evidence connected to the killers, that terrorist couple in
