45% say they disapprove. one-third of americans have confidence in the picks for top appointments which have been lacking some >> onlt only 33% of americans have confidence in the president's leadership. this is historically low with other modern day presidents before they took office. it's also not a surprise. we have all of the goings on within the transition covered. let's begin with cnn's jason carroll. he's live outside the annex, trump tower, in new york. >> reporter: and good morning to you, chris. what, it's been about two weeks and still no press conference from donald trump. but as you say, he did release that video outlining what he plans to do in his first 100 days it in office, including the executive actions he plans to take. all this while speculation continues to swirl over who's going to help him do it and who he's going to appoint to his cabinet. president-elect donald trump outlining what he intends to
accomplish during his first 100 days in office, including a pledge to create jobs. >> on trade, i'm going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the transpacific partnership. i will cancel job killing restrictions on the production of american energy, including shale energy and clean coal, creating many millions of high-paying jobs. >> reporter: and end corruption in washington. >> as part of our plan to drain the swamp, we will oppose a five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave the administration. and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. >> reporter: but in the 2 1/2-minute video, trump steering clear of some of his most controversial and biggest campaign promises, like building a wall on the mexico border, repealing obamacare, placing a ban on muslims entering the united states, and no mention of deportations. >> on immigration, i will direct
the department of labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the american worker. >> reporter: this as trump continues to parade cabinet and senior staff hopefuls past cameras again. gabbert slipping past cameras to meet with trump. she's the second democrat trump has spoken with. she's now under consideration for top jobs at the state department and the united nations, according to a source. trump also taking time to meet with executives and anchors from five television networks, including cnn, to address concerns about access. >> it was an off-the-record meeting. it was very cordial, very productive, genial, but it was also very candid and honest. >> reporter: meanwhile, trump's team on the defensive. civil rights groups urging the president-elect to denounce the alt-right after white nationals were captured on video cheering the president-elect in washington. >> hail trump!
hail our people! hail victory! >> reporter: and capitalizing on trump's make america great again slogan. >> for us as europeans, it is only normal again when we are great again. >> reporter: racism and anti-semitism on full display, audience members giving a nazi salute. without denouncing the alt-right by name, trump's transition team said in a statement, president-elect trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind, and he was elected because he will be a leader for every american. and that statement still not satisfying trump's critics, who are very concerned about the appointment of steve bannon as his chief strategist. bannon, as you know, former head of breitbart. bannon made it very clear that breitbart was a platform for the alt-right. bannon still on track to be his chief strategist. chris, alisyn? >> jason, you've given us a lot to talk about.
thank you. let's discuss donald trump's 100-day plan. we want top bring in cnn political analyst and washington bureau chief of the daily beast, jackie kucinich, and host of the podcast "examining politics" david drucker. great to see both of you. let's pull up the 100-day plan, since he's put it out there. he plans to, on trade, withdraw from tpp. we knew that. that was a promise. negotiate bilateral trade deals. on energy, slash restrictions on domestic energy production. on regulation, this is new, cut two old regulations for every new one created. on national security, have a plan to protect the infrastructure from cyber attacks. who wouldn't welcome that. immigration, investigate abuses of visa programs. ethics reform, five-year ban on lobbying for top officials after they leave the administration, lifetime ban for top officials lobbying on behalf of foreign governments. what do you see here, jackie? >> good thing manafort left. but i'm not seeing anything new. this is a lot of the things he
said before he won, and there's not a whole lot of specifics. what regulations he's going to cut, what the plans are. i know he doesn't like to reveal his plans, but there still is just a lack of things to fill it out. maybe that's what the cabinet officials will do. maybe he's waiting for them. but again, it doesn't seem like there's meat on these bones yet. >> right. now look, i think this is most notable for what you don't see, david, right? where is the wall? where is repeal and replace at the top of the agenda? his signature issues are not there. why? >> well, i think they're still working them out. what's interesting here is most of this is republican boilerplate. the rest of it, which is not typical republican policy necessarily, is a continuation from the type of things that president obama proposed when he ran. he famously ran and said we're going to get the influence of lobbyists out of washington. nobody ever gets the influence of lobbyists out of washington. as long as washington spends money, there are going to be people advocating on behalf of
it. and lobbyists, as trump said in his "60 minutes" interview, are the people in town that know the most about running a government. so they're going to have a hard time doing that. but other than that, i think that as you see the transition unfold, you'll see more specifics. he's giving some of the work to the republican congress to come up with some of this legislation. i have no doubt that by the time he takes office, he'll start working on the repeal and replacement of obamacare. he'll start doing more when it comes to immigration. i think the issue here is the things that are going to surprise us and how is president trump going to react to the things that he cannot predict that impact every presidency. >> i think you're right, but isn't the answer to the question, those things are hard. the wall, repealing obamacare. these are complicated things. these aren't something you can knock out in the first hundred days. especially repealing obamacare. >> well, no. look, that's probably going to take a year. it's not the repeal. it's the replacement. republicans are going -- >> well you have to have a year
of because of the service contracts. you sign a service contract for a year, david. you can't take it away from me before that year. >> right. the issue is they're going to reform the entire health care system all over again. that's what obamacare did. it didn't just make some tweaks. what republicans have to do is figure out how to reform the health care system from what it is now. that's why it's going to take a long time to do. i think -- look, i think what voters want to see, at least the voters that supported him, is incremental progress. i think voters that are skeptical of him or don't like him, probably many of them want to have hope his presidency will be rather normal. so when he rolls out in drips and drabs some of these cabinet hirings and these goals in terms of what he's going to do, it's designed to keep the american people up to speed. ultimately, if they think their lives are better, they'll be happy. if they they their lives are not better, they'll be upset. it doesn't matter what the specifics are. >> it's that simple calculus.
we have some polls just out a couple minutes ago about how americans are feeling about president-elect trump right now. president trump will do a good job, 53% agree with that, 44% think he'll do a poor job. a lot of confidence in the president-elect's ability to provide leadership. let's look at these numbers and compare them with previous presidents. at this point, people felt that president obama, 49% felt they had a lot of confidence in his ability to do a -- provide leadership. 36% for bush, 34% for reagan, 33% for donald trump. isn't that interesting? >> better than clinton. >> yeah, better than clinton, but isn't that interesting? >> which trump no doubt takes pleasure in. >> he's done nothing but show leadership at this point because he's the president-elect. he hasn't had any, you know, roadblocks yet. still, people aren't that confident. >> i mean, he's only roadblocks are himself. this also was a very divided
election. other than this youtube video, he hasn't really addressed the american people. >> he hasn't done a single press conference. he did that "60 minutes" which was largely a vanity exercise, an introduction to the president-elect. but he's not been taking a big firie ining line. he's been sending out his surrogates to bash the media instead. >> so what do they have to go on other than a couple of tweets and one interview at this point. >> donald trump is a divisive figure. he's still acting like a divisive figure. so it's not a surprise these numbers would come in as they are. he has an opportunity to improve them, i think, as we get further away from the election. more americans will feel somewhat better about him because you don't have his opponents bashing him every single day. and he's not as front and center, saying the kind of things he was saying every day. although, the tweets kind of keep him in character and i think could inhibit his ability to expand his appeal. but it doesn't matter because
he's the president. he doesn't need to expand his appeal. all he needs to do is produce. if he produces, people will look at him differently. >> i think what will be interesting is to see the reaction of these. these are all incremental things. he did not campaign on being an incremental things. that's the only pushback i have. he didn't come in by saying, i'll make things a little better. he was going to blow stuff up. >> his supporters didn't vote for him because they thought he was going to blow stuff up. they voted for him because they thought -- for his supporters, here's somebody who's finally on our side. for people that don't support him, they're not going to support him anyway. he keeps kind of sticking his finger in their eye because he doesn't care. >> but being on their side meant something real to people. it meant he's going to keep out these immigrants, that he's going to return the vitality of jobs that come to people like me. that's not in here. that's all i'm saying. >> look, it's a good point. there may come a time when people say you need to give us more, you need to deliver more. i'm just saying his supporters and a lot of voters aren't going to expect him to uphold every
promise. for them, it's about the tone, and that's what's most important to them. >> also, very quickly, we hear that there's going to be some economic team news today. what are we expecting? >> we could have the treasury secretary, perhaps steve mnuchin, another person already in the trump orbit who was brought in. jonathan gray, who donated to hillary clinton, who's a billionaire. he would be more of an off chute from what we've seen before. >> okay. we'll see what happens in the next couple hours. panel, stick around. all right. we're also following breaking news out of tennessee. why? a school bus driver was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide because of a crash on monday that killed six elementary school children. the families of those students and that community are trying to come to grips with what has been lost. we have cnn's martin savidge live in chattanooga, breaking
details from there. martin, what do we know? >> reporter: morning, chris. the bus driver overnight was taken into custody, 24-year-old johnthony walker. he obviously survived the crash. authorities say he has been cooperative. the real question is, how and why did this happen? flipping on to its side, careening into a tree so fast its frame crumbling on impact. this is the image of a horrific school bus crash in chattanooga, tennessee, killing six students and injuring 23. the bus driver, 24-year-old johnthony walker, arrested late monday and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment, and reckless driving. >> certainly speed is being investigated very, very strongly. >> reporter: a witness living near the crash said she heard a big boom just before 3:30 p.m. and that the impact was so strong it knocked her power out. >> this has been a great tragedy for us.
we have suffered a great loss. >> reporter: emergency officials raced to the scene. so did frantic parents. the fire department working for hours to remove the 35 elementary school students on board, trapped inside. but for some, it was too late. five children died on the bus and another died at the hospital. meanwhile, hundreds of residents from the community lining up to donate blood at a local blood bank to help the injured. their parents hoping they can take their child home soon. >> we are working diligently to ensure that all of the other children who have received care at the hospitals or may have been transported to other locations are reunited successfully with their families. >> reporter: we're outside the elementary school where the school bus departed from yesterday. school officials in a short while are expected to have a news conference. the ntsb is also sending a go team, and they'll begin investigating how it all happened. alisyn? >> what a sad story, martin.

president-elect donald trump praised this weekend during a gathering of more than 200 members of the alt-right movement. members raising their arms in the nazi salute amid declarations of hail trump. listen to what richard spencer, white supremacist group's leader, said in a speech that was filled with anti-semitism and nazi propaganda. >> america was, until this past generation, a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity. it is our creation. it is our inheritance. and it belongs to us. >> and that is, of course,
completely false, what america is about. but this is about how will trump deal with this kind of support. the transition team released a statement saying that trump denounces any form of racism, but he did not rebuke them, even in this statement, by name. why not? let's discuss with jackie kucinich and david drucker. the guy doesn't like what happens at "hamilton." he doesn't like what happens on "snl," and he'll go off for hours about it in detail. but nazis stand up and talk about him, david drucker, and he's anonymous about it. they're mild about it in their pushback, and they always have been. why? >> it's never really made sense to me. you know, trump has an opportunity here and had throughout the campaign to deliver a speech very similar to what barack obama did with reverend jeremiah wright. in that campaign, the way president obama dealt with wright, was to give a very pointed speech in which he not only disavowed wright by name, he disavowed the things that
wright had said, the things that wright stood for and was very specific about it. then barack obama never had to talk about it again. and if trump would deliver a similar speech, he would never have to talk about it ever again. it wouldn't cost him an ounce of political capital. his supporters really don't care what he does. but the way trump looks at it is he doesn't do what a typical politician should do, and he looks at his victory as something that didn't happen in spite of himself, it happened because of himself. it reaffirms every way in which he conducted his campaign. so i think this is why they don't like to speak to it. but i actually think it would enhance his image and presidency and make him look really good. >> jackie, his team says, mr. trump continues to denounce racism. when has he denounced it? >> does he? >> it's a quote. >> david is absolutely right. he needs -- because it's not just about his people at this point. he's the president of the united states, all of it, all of the states, all of the people who even didn't vote for him.
allowing this to continue to fester and to -- for these people to think that he represents them isn't good for anyone. >> saying "stop it" on "60 minutes" is not denouncing racism. >> no, he needs to take a strong stand about this. >> here's the problem. it is denouncing racism. >> no, it isn't. >> leslie stall asked him, what do you think ? he said, i think it's terrible. she was contextualizing it about this stuff. the campaign can come out and say, well, we did denounce this, kucinich is wrong. here's the point. the point is this. this man has never gone so little in denouncing something as he has consistently with this element that attached itself to his campaign. that's the part that is a
troubling question mark. because on the most trivial things, the lowest hanging fruit, he goes nuts about them in many different manifestations. but not this. and i don't think it's because he thinks he won because of these people. >> no, it's not that he thinks he won because of them, but he thinks he won because of how he conduct himself and his strategy. so by not listening to the mainstream media -- >> these are nazis. >> by not listening to what we say he should do, it worked. that's how he looks at it. >> shouldn't he want to denounce something like this? this is just so repulsive and so -- the lowest instincts. >> look, it's something that i think i would want to do and i think it's something that would enhance his image that would actually enhance his stature. but trump doesn't care about what people think he should do when it comes to conventional
thinking. and i also think that trump -- and we saw this with vladimir putin. when people like trump, i don't think he really looks at who the people are. he just likes to be liked. and so he doesn't find it useful to denounce people that like him. >> so yesterday there was this meeting between the top network news executives and some anchors. they went over to trump tower. they were going to figure out the way forward. because as we know, donald trump has been denying access to the media for long standing traditions of a press pool. he's been dodging the media. the executives and anchors were going to talk about what was the expectation. it was an off-the-record meeting, but we have some sources inside who said it was at times contentious and he did criticize the media, cnn as well as other networks. he didn't like some of the photos people had shown of him. he thought the media reporting was unfair.
he doesn't like any unflattering sort of reports about him. >> he just doesn't like it. >> it goes to my point about why what he's choosing to ignore doesn't make any sense. he got up this morning, looked at "the new york times," didn't like their coverage, he tweets. put it up on the screen. >> i canceled today's meeting with the failing "new york times" when the terms and conditions of the meeting with r changed at the last moment. not nice. >> now, this is my point. it doesn't take a lot to trigger his disgust, okay. but you said something that i hadn't thought of before. maybe if someone is for him, that's good enough. you ever meet those people where you're like, this person is the worst guy i ever met. he's nice to me though. maybe that's enough for trump, that these nazi saluting, terrible people, espousing things that couldn't be less what america's about, like him, so he's not going to go after them too much. but if you don't like him, then he'll go after you, even if you're mother teresa. is that what it is? >> or the pope.
>> the pope he went after in an interview with me. >> i think that's how he's functioned as a presidential candidate and so far as the president-elect. i can't get inside his head and shrink the guy, but that's been a part of how he has existed as both a politician and before. >> so why would we think it would be any different as president? >> you shouldn't. people govern the way they campaign. especially right after they win, they think they won because of everything they did. they don't think, oh, god, i got lucky. wow, i won. hey, that worked. >> is part of it the they? is it not just trump? is it what bannon's telling him? bannon can put as many labels on himself as he wants. breitbart echoes a lot of these agendas. >> i'm sure bannon is telling him it's working. just keep it up and everything is going to be fine. he trusts bannon. reince priebus is very effective, but he's an implementer. >> he got a constitutional
mandate of a chance. it's what he's doing with that chance that's drawing the criticism. >> a million and a half of the popular vote didn't agree with it. >> but he won. >> absolutely. >> he got his 300-plus electoral votes. he's going to be president of the united states. it's what is he doing with that. this is low fruit. denounce the ugliness that's as anti-american as anything in our culture. >> guys, thank you very much. so there's been an arrest we have to tell you about in the targeted shooting death of a veteran san antonio police officer. what we know about the alleged gunman and his motive next.
a suspect is in custody for the shooting death of a veteran san antonio police officer. police say otis tyrone mccain targeted the officer as he sat in his patrol car sunday morning writing a traffic ticket. polo sandoval is live with more. what have you learned? >> reporter: alisyn, there seems to be this mix of relief and grief here in san antonio. people grateful this accused cop killer is behind bars, but at the same time, they're also grieving the loss of this police officer. investigators here saying that
there were several leads that took them directly to mccain. he's a 31-year-old san antonio man. he seemed apologetic as he was led by officers out of the police department yesterday. take a listen. >> what were you upset about, sir? >> society not letting me see my son, lashing out at somebody that didn't deserve it. >> did you know the officer? >> no, sir. >> what were you doing down here on sunday? >> why was it his fault you couldn't see your son? >> i've been through several custody battles. >> reporter: that's the suspect in officer marconi's death, apologet apologetic, saying he was mad at society and didn't necessarily know the officer when he pulled up to the curb on sunday, opening fire, ending the life of a 20-year veteran of the police force. we hear from prosecutors who say they're waiting for this case to be handed to them. they expect this to be a capital murder case and eventually they would decide if they would pursue a death penalty in this
case. guys? >> polo, thank you for fighting through the cold to bring us this information. important development. appreciate it. all right. at least three people were injured after a 6.9-magnitude earthquake that struck off the northeastern coast of japan. it triggered a three-foot tsunami at the fukushima plant, the site of the one of the world's worst nuclear disasters, as you'll remember. tremors were felt as far away as tokyo. tsunami warnings have since been lifted, but aftershocks are expected. well, donald trump is promising to rebuild america's infrastructure at a cost of $1 trillion. so how will he pay for that? christine romans takes us inside the numbers next. are you ready?? you gotta be ready. ♪ oh, i'm ready i mean, really ready. are you ready to open?

we are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, tunnels, bridges, hospitals, schools. we're going to rebuild our infrastructure. >> that was president-elect donald trump promising to invest in america's infrastructure. so what is his plan exactly? and how will he pay for it? cnn chief business correspondent christine romans joins us to
break it all down. good to see you. i have a political question before we start. why do republicans love this $1 trillion infrastructure plan when they hated president obama's infrastructure stimulus plan? >> i'm not sure they all love this infrastructure plan. they want to make sure, i think, it's paid for, really paid for. so there's some controversy on how this is going to look. let's talk about what it is they want to do here first. we don't have a blueprint, per se, pun intended, but we do know that trump wants to spend about a trillion dollars over ten years. here's how that stacks up. hillary clinton's plan on the campaign trail was $275 billion over five years. the american society of civil engineers says we got a lot of stuff to fix. they say we need to spend almost $4 trillion by 2020. this is a lot to do. >> but a big distinguishing characteristic is clinton was going to do the normal funding mechanism, which a lot of gop doesn't like. raising taxes or floating debt to make it happen. trump has a different idea of how to do it that essentially will privatize a lot of our nation's infrastructure, and that's causing some controversy too. it's complicated.
>> it's complicated and sort of creative. let's look at what needs to be done first. where will all this money be inve invested? this is the traditional stuff. airports, air traffic control systems. a long-term clean water project, energy pipelines and coal facilities. remember those coal jobs? security infrastructure. you heard him in that video last night talking about protecting against cyber attacks. that could be technology spending that is infrastructure spending, not necessarily a shovel in the ground. >> very expensive because america has old hardware. >> absolutely. this is needed. it's hard to argue against it. it's just who pays for it and how does it get done. remember, as president obama famously said when he failed, basically, at the infrastructure building, well, the shovel-ready projects weren't as shovel ready as i thought. what's different now? >> that's interesting because i was hearing from ceos that there are still not as many shovel-ready projects. >> what does that mean? >> they're not ready to go with
appropriate permits, with appropriate epa approvals. >> maybe those are some of the regulations. >> exactly. so this is the public/private partnership we're talking about, how to pay for it. $137 billion in private tax breaks to investigators. we're going to give you tax breaks so you can get in on this instead of just making it state and federal government. we're private investigators. also, new tax revenues. president criticism is this only addresses a narrow slice of infrastructure spending here. >> but also, you would have tax dollars put out to help float this project. then you'd have it privately owned. so all the revenue from the tolls wind up going to this investor group, not back to taxpayers. >> exactly. there are other ways you get revenue. think of water services and things that have a steady stream of revenue that come in. so there's some things that -- >> do we want private companies building bridges? >> exactly. there's also other ideas. direct government investment. cutting red tape. one of his advisers has said, if
you had a tax holiday for the trillions of dollars big companies have overseas, that money would come back here. the taxes that would be paid, even though it would be less taxes than the 35% corporate rate, could be used to fund this. there's also the idea of an infrastructure bank. you have the congress putting a bunch of money into a bank. that bank also takes private investors and works together, giving returns and loans that way to do deals. let's talk about what the pushback is. go back to your first question. here's what bernie sanders has said. trump's plan to repair infrastructure is a scam that gives mass i tax breaks to large companies and billionaires. that's what he says. if you look at -- >> that bridge needs help. >> yeah, that is a shovel-ready project. >> that is shovel ready. >> listen to paul ryan. >> -- pass a $550 billion or more infrastructure program. would that be something that you would help him achieve? >> that's not in the better way. just so you know, we didn't pass
the biggest highway bill -- >> since the 1990s. >> that doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement of donald trump's plan to spend a whole bunch of money. that's when it was a $550 billion infrastructure bill. >> was it the slapping of his knee? >> look, congress -- this is all going to have to go through congress. donald trump is going to have a delicate dance here. i'll tell you one other thing that ceos are saying to me. they like the idea of spending infrastructure. it's one of the reasons why the stock market is so high right now. they're worried there aren't enough workers for some of these. 4.9% unemployment. a trillion dollars over ten years. you're talking about hundreds of thousands of people being put to work. they're worried they can't find the people. >> christine, thanks so much for helping us understand all of this. >> as they define it more, we'll come back and tell you what makes sense and what doesn't. so there was a big historic event in the nfl. they had their first game ever in the regular season outside the u.s. in mexico city. something happened in that game we have not seen before. we'll tell you in our bleacher report. here's a hint, just flashed on your screen. if you're searching other travel sites to find a better price...
who says i shouldn't havmy doctor.very day? my dentist. definitely my wife. hey wait. we have better bubbles. make sparkling water at home and drink 43% more water every day. sodastream. love your water. a lot of the things that we have in our diet today can actually enamel is the outer surface of the teeth that's white. start to threaten the enamel and start to cause what we call acid erosion. if there's a thinning of the enamel, the teeth actually start to appear more yellow. with pronamel, it is making your teeth harder and stronger and more resistant to wear. start using pronamel right away and have that be your toothpaste for the rest of your life. these are the last set of teeth that you're getting, you don't get another set, you have to protect them.
more snow being dumped on parts of the country just as millions are set to hit the road and go to airports for thanksgiving. cnn meteorologist chad myers has what you need to know today. what are you seeing, chad? >> if we could back up or push forward thanksgiving just one week, we'd have no problems whatsoever because there was no weather at all literally last week. now we've turned colder. the snow is coming down. we will get something to slow airplanes down, especially chicago for tomorrow. but let me just stack this up for you. here's where we were one week ago. 0.3%, less than 1% of the country was covered in snow. now we fast forward you seven days. we're almost 16% covered in snow. so that's going to make some slippery driving conditions. we all expect that, especially at night as the sun melts some things during the daytime and refreezes at night. if you're traveling across the country, as so many of you are, there will be some new snow, just not that much significant new stuff.
duluth, minneapolis, yes, you'll get some snow. but you expect that. also, a couple of thunderstorms across parts of the country. a slow down or two especially over chicago. for the most part, thanksgiving day looks tranquil. chris? >> thank you very much, my friend. so the texans and raiders went down to the wire in mexico city last night. this is the first time a monday night football game was played outside the u.s. it was worth the wait. now, coy wire has more in this morning's bleacher report. we had other games in london, obviously, outside the u.s. and elsewhere, but this was the first time on monday night it was a big deal, but there was also something weird, like what's going on here in the studio. a little bit of noise here. those are jaws dropping from the game last night. >> alisyn dropping her coffee mug over there? what's going on? >> i think she's throwing stuff at me. good thing i got cat-like quickness. >> good morning to you. the nfl has invested heavily into the globalization of the sport. it was a big deal last night
when the nfl returned to mexico for the first time in more than a decade. a sellout crowd of more than 76,000 fans packing estadi estadio azteca, one of the most famous sporting venues in the world. fans got a little overzealous at times. here's a moment. check out the green laser pointer on brock osweiler's face. dropping back in a pass. that's something the fans do at soccer matches there in the past. everything was fine. that was about the only drama we saw. until the end of the game. oakland's high-powered offense stymied until the fourth quarter. then their star quarterback david carr came to life. two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to give the raiders the lead for good. oakland wins 27-20. they are the number one seed in the afc. some big soccer news yesterday. manager of the men's soccer team, jurgen klinsmann, has been fired after five years on the job. klinsmann took over in 2011. he led the u.s. team to the round of 16 in the 2014 world
cup. but some disappointing losses recently, mexico and costa rica in the world qualifying matches, those were seemingly the final straw for klinsmann. it's been rumored that l.a. galaxy coach bruce arena will take over for klinsmann. it would be his second run at leading the u.s. team. his last stint as manager was from 1998 to 2006. whoever the coach is, alisyn, they're going to have some time for their next qualifying match to practice with that team. it's not until march. that is against honduras. >> good to know, coy. thanks so much for all of that. >> you're welcome. donald trump's web of business ties present a bunch of conflicts of interest. we take a closer look at those next. lyou gotta make a truck heavier to make it stronger, has been workin' too long without a hard hat. meet the all-new 2017 ford super duty.

donald trump has a lot of businesses and a lot of different countries. that raises concerns about potential conflicts of interest between those dealings and his duties as president. trump and his transition team says no laws are being broken. that's probably true because there are like no laws that apply here. this is about ethical standards. as our new cnn poll shows, 59% of americans do not think trump is doing enough to prevent conflicts of interest as
president. let's discuss with cnn's senior legal analyst and former federal prosecutor jeffrey toobin. always a pleasure, my brother. a little irony, he was crushing clinton during the campaign about perceived conflicts of interest, and now we are dealing with a situation where we don't even know what we don't know. he has disclosed almost nothing about conflicts. how does this size up legally, ethically? >> i think it is, at this point, much more of a political issue than a legal issue. as you said, every president in modern american history has put their assets in what's called a blind trust so that they don't even know what their assets are so they can't act to favor them. that's a tradition. it is not a law. there is no law requiring presidents to put an asset in a trust. >> it's also traditionally easy. we're talking about securities usually. they put them in a trust, a legal vehicle, so whoever is investing them does it on their own and you don't know. that's not his scenario.
i don't know that a blind trust would work. >> the only way it would work is if you simply sold the whole company and put the money in stocks or bonds, which he said from the very beginning of the campaign he was not going to do. but now that he's becoming president, the nature of the conflicts are becoming obvious. let's just talk about one thing. he had a meeting with the prime minister of japan. ivanka is sitting right there. ivanka is going to be one of the people managing the company. >> the poll also shows overwhelmingly the majority of americans do not think the kids should be having a hand in the business and in the government. they shouldn't even have the security clearances, which is debatable. >> again, he promised that they were going to have a hand in the business and they were close advisers to him. so his position is, look, i ran for president, openly saying this is what's going to happen, i won, so in effect, it's all grandfathered in. but now it's becoming clear just how intertwined the business and the government are going to be.
>> the allegations that foreign representatives are staying at the trump hotel in d.c. and that there's some kind of encouragement of that, that he met with some of his indian partners as part of his transition meetings about what's going on abroad. what's your read on these in terms of obvious conflict? >> the hotel thing seems very minor to me. so what. you're talking about hotel rooms. the much bigger issue is, i think, what about his investments abroad. he owes money, we think, to foreign banks, to sovereign funds. if you were negotiating with russia and you owe russia money, that's -- that is a position of real peril. it also goes back to the whole tax return issue. because he never released his tax return, we don't know exactly. >> and his guy said he will not change his answer going forward. every year, as you may or may not know, presidents put our their taxes and they get reviewed by all of us.
we look at what they have. he's not going to do it. >> can i make a prediction? those of us in the news business after this election shouldn't be making many predictions. we are never going to see those tax returns. >> do you think anybody can compel trump to make more of his business dealings public, even if only to some congressional committee so that they can get some comfort about who the guy is doing business with? on one level, it is a little absurd that nobody knows who his business dealings are with. it's a little absurd for president of the united states. it's never happened before. >> it is unprecedented, as you point out, but remember, this is a political matter. you're talking about a house and senate that are completely in republican hands. they're partners with donald trump. barring some sensational disclosure that we have not yet seen, what are the chances that the house judiciary committee, the senate judiciary committee, which are partners with donald trump, are going to start
insisting that he be more transparent. it just seems extremely unlikely to me. they're the only ones who remotely have the chance of doing it. the democrats have no power to do it. >> the irony that he got so much currency during the campaign for crushing clinton about the foundation and the money making and perceptions of conflict of interest that were vetted in large part by the fbi. nothing every came from it. and with this man, we know nothing about it. >> and by the way, the fbi investigation of hillary clinton, he has never repudiated the idea he's going to continue to investigate and perhaps even prosecutor hillary clinton. >> supposedly that's going away. >> supposedly? do you think jeff sessions is desperate -- >> no, but there's word coming out of his transition it's not going to happen. let me ask you something while i have you here. constitutional convention. you need two-thirds of the state legislatures to do it. you now have 32 of the state legislatures republican. you need 34 to have two-thirds
of 50. do you think there's any chance that the republicans get together from the state legislature base and have a constitutional convention, and if so, what could they change? >> well, the second question is a lot easier than the first. what could they change? they could change the whole constitution. i think there is a lot to worry about and be concerned about in this country. a constitutional convention is not one of them. >> even though they're only two legislatures away? >> there are legal questions about whether each of those calls is actually binding because they have happened over many years. when you look at the fact that we have not had a constitutional convention since the first one in the 18th century, i think leaving the constitution as it is, is a widely popular position. if you want to amend it, there is an amendment process. >> that's hard because you have to go through congress. >> that's true. i just don't think we're going to have a constitutional convention. >> only one convention -- >> but another prediction -- >> please.
>> could be wrong. >> jeffrey, thank you so much. a lot of news coming out of transition committee, coming out of events around this country we need to tell you about. let's get to it. i want the next generation of innovation and production to happen here in my homeland, america. >> an off-the-record meeting with media executives. >> very candid and honest. >> my agenda will be based on a simple core principle, putting america first. >> how many seats do we have to lose before we make a change? >> there's no harder worker than nancy pelosi. >> we can all breathe a little easier knowing the suspect is in custody. >> doesn't matter who it was. he was targeting blue. >> ben was a great guy. people loved him. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. >> good morning. welcome to your "new day." in a new online
