1:01 am
welcome to "early start." i'm alison kosik. >> i'm joe johns. it is tuesday, december 27th. christine and john are off. first up, despite the administration having less than a month to go on the job, secretary of state john kerry is expected to deliver a speech later this week outlining the obama administration's vision for peace in the middle east. it comes as relations between the u.s. and israel appear more strained than ever with israeli officials claiming proof the obama administration pushed for the resolution. and in the meantime, prime minister benjamin netanyahu ordering working ties with 12 nations that backed the vote. cnn's oren liebermann is following the latest. >> reporter: joe, as you mentioned, secretary of state john kerry made it clear that he has a plan to give a speech to layout his vision for speech.
1:02 am
that is something the israelis are concerned about. this is not only kerry's vision for peace in the speech, but the peace conference in paris in the middle of january. those are israel's concerns. in the meantime, prime minister netanyahu is not backing off his comments from president obama or other countries. he is taking diplomatic steps and working ties with embassies and ministers. it is a very strong statement about how angry netanyahu is. meanwhi meanwhile, the u.s. and israel launching issues that the u.s. is behind it from the very beginning. here is the prime minister's spokesperson david keys. >> we have iron clad sources. we will share that information with the incoming information through the proper channels. if the new administration plans to share that, that is their
1:03 am
presenti prerogative. calling for genocide of all jews is celebrating this decision. and celebrating it because it distances the chances of peace. >> reporter: we pitch pushed is on this decision that the u.s. was behind it from the beginning. they have not put any evidence forward. in fact, saying in an odd twist, they will provide it to the next administration after this is out of office. mean while, obama's administration going on television to defend their decision. >> by definition, this is not an ambush when president obama and secretary kerry have been saying in hundreds of conversations and public comments that israeli settlement activity was pushing into the west bank in a way that was making the two-state solution unachievable. >> netanyahu has made it clear he is not backing down. last night, he called his
1:04 am
response to this quote responsible, measured and vigorous. this is not quieting down anytime soon. joe and alison. a very fine line there. the administration essentially saying it is not behind this u.n. reesolution. at the same time, clearly concerned about the settlement. thank you, oren, in jerusalem. back to work today for the trump transition team. just 24 days until the oath of office. the president-elect is spending the holiday at mar-a-lago out of the public eye. he is not off twitter. he could not resist responding to president obama's big if. the president telling the podcast he could have beaten trump. believing his message of hope and change would resonate if a third term was allowed. >> i am confident in this vision because i'm con iffi
1:05 am
because i'm con iffdent if i --f i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobile ey a majority of the american people. >> trump said he should say that but i say no way. jobs leaving, isis, obamacare, et cetera. trump taking aim at the u.n. at the anti-israel resolution. saying this, the u.n. has great potential, but it is just a club for people to get together and talk and have a good time. so sad. there is more. trump taking credit for the busy holiday shopping season. the world was a gloomy place before i won. there was no hope. now the market is up nearly 10% and christmas spending is over $1 trillion. no sourcing on that $1 trillion number. the national retail federation
1:06 am
projects $655 billion. a go trump announcing plans to dissolve the charity and avoid any conflict of interest. i gave millions of dollars to djt foundation. raised and received millions more. all of which is given to charity and media won't report. the djt foundation, like most others never paid fees or rent or salaries. 100% of money goes to wonderful charities. trump, it's worth noting, has not donated to the foundation since 2008. a non tweeted development trump aides will write the inauguration speech. he wrote many during the campaign. the address will be similar to the stump and thank you speeches with themes of the economy and outsourcing and border security.
1:07 am
and as president obama and japanese's prime minister shinzo abe visit pearl harbor and the "uss arizona" together. president obama arriving in hawaii monday for other ceremonial events. among them, a visit to the cemetery where he laid wreaths to remember those killed in the pearl harbor attack. today, he will mark the first formal trip by a japanese leader to the site of the japanese air attack that killed more than 2,400 americans and drew the u.s. into world war ii 75 years ago. we get more from athena jones in honolulu. >> reporter: this visit by prime minister abe coming seven months after president obama made historic trip to hiroshima. he became the first sitting u.s. president to pay respects to the tens of thousands of people who lost their lives there. now prime minister abe will do the same at pearl harbor. the white house says these two visits which are serving as book
1:08 am
ends to one another highlight the power of reconciliation. the ability for former adversaries to become the closest of allies. president obama made the point at hiroshima that 75 years ago in the immediate aftermath of pearl harbor,lliance could never have been imagined. we expect the leaders to have a formal sit down. the white house calls a bilateral meeting. they will visit the "uss arizona" to visit and pay respects to those 900 soldiers who remain entombed in the watery grave. we will hear from president obama and prime minister abe. we expect prime minister abe's remarks to echo the message that president obama delivered in hiroshima. before coming here, prime minister abe said this visit will be a visit to soothe the
1:09 am
souls of the victims. we should never repeat the ravages of war. that is one of the themes we expect the prime minister to touch on in his remarks here. there are certainly people here in hawaii looking forward to the visit by prime minister abe. i spoke to a 95-year-old witness to the pearl harbor attacks. he said it is a healing between the two countries. back to you. athena jones in honolulu. that's a pretty good trip to do. never got to do that. the weather looks great. christmas is over. the christmas spirit vanishing quickly in malls across america. violent fights and chaos breaking out in nearly a dozen cities. more coming up next.

1:13 am
money. inauguration just a few weeks away, but the cabinet confirmation process has a long and monumental journey ahead. the nominees include five billionaires and six mul multimillionaires. according to the wall street journal. bernie sanders spoke out on twitter yesterday. saying donald trump, the anti-establish republican is building a cabinet worth at least $13 billion. the hypocrisy astounds me. all this could be a slow process. to get through the lengthy application process, nominees have to list all of the organizations they have been affiliated with since they have been 18 years old. name the clients who could pose a conflict of interest and all real estate holdings as well. it is unlikely the process could change the outcome of the
1:14 am
nominations, it could take a lot of time and that could slow trump's agenda in the end. >> that is the intangible of all of it. you have 100 days for the first president to make his initial mark and if his process of nominees get slowed down dramatically, it slows down the process and takes away from him trying to push the agenda. >> trump has made promises he would do certain things on day one. i think reality is setting in, maybe that will not be possible. >> speaking of reality, we have reality to tell you about on the day after christmas. violence erupting at several malls across the nation. just one day after christmas. take a look at this video out of manchester, connecticut. you can hear people screaming. punches thrown in the shops at buckland hills. a large chase ensues. our affiliate in harthand says one was assaulted. a mall in texas on lockdown
1:15 am
after the fight involving 100 middle school and high school students. >> where are their parents? >> exactly. maybe they should be in school. officers had to go store to store to let people out once the lockdown was lifted. look at aurora, illinois. this is the start of what evolved into a massive fight at fox valley ball. teenagers sprint down the stairs after this fight breaks out. the mall was forced to close for the day. >> you know what it is? all of the kids are off school and nothing to do. you are looking at beechwood place mall in ohio. the mall on lockdown after unfounded reports of an active shooter. this started after a fight broke out among teenagers in the food court. and panic in chattanooga, tennessee. shoppers mistook the fireworks for gunshots.
1:16 am
the aurora town mall in colorado evacuating after fights in the mall involving at least 500 people. it started with a social media post prophet muhammmising a fig. and in north carolina, people forced to evacuate after a fight in the food court. a report of a suspected gunman turned out to be false. homework is the solution. bloody holiday weekend in chicago. at least a dozen people shot dead. authorities say it appears the majority of the shootings were targeted attacks by gang members against potential rivals who were at holiday gatherings. the police chief saying it is time to lay down the law. >> i just don't believe that we hold repeat gun offenders accountable for their anxiousct.
1:17 am
we don't. the justice system in cook county is a joke. until we change the narrative of individuals to make them not want to pick up a gun, we will continue to see this cycle. >> chicago police say there were at least 27 shooting incidents all over the christmas weekend. authorities in tennessee looking for the last remaining prisoners following the christmas day escape from the county jail. suspect david frazier along with five other inmates fled from the facility through a hole they discovered in the wall which led them outside. apparently the hole was behind a toilet. the men managed to move the toilet back to cover the hole and conceal their escape. the other five are now back in custody. when you have a lot of time on your hands, you find the hole behind the toilet. the world is paying tribute to george michael.
1:18 am

london, people are coming. the weather and temperatures bitterly cold overnight. through the night and morning, people are still leaving flowers and candles and messages expressing shock and grief and very much love and affection for the pop superstar. we heard tributes from fans and colleag colleagues. what we have heard are words of grief from those who knew george michael best of all. including the man who was with him on the day he died. his partner has posted this in a tweet overnight. he says it is a christmas i will never forget. finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first things in the morning. i will never stop missing you. they had been together for a number of years. prior to that, george michael was in a relationship for 13 years with american kenny goss.

1:30 am
to achieve peace as israelis put working ties on the countries voted in favor of the measure. donald trump out of the public eye, but by no means silent. unleashing a tirade with the media and u.n. and president obama. he is doing it on twitter. and a historic moment in hawaii today. a visit by japan's prime minister to the site of the attack on pearl harbor more than 75 years ago. we will have a preview from h honolu honolulu. good morning. welcome back to "early start." i'm joe johns. >> i'm alison kosik. it is tuesday, december 27th. 30 minutes past the hour. john and christine are off. despite the administration having less than a month to go on the job, secretary of state john kerry is expected to deliver a speech later this week outlining the obama administration's vision for peace in the middle east. this comes as relations with the u.s. and israel appear more
1:31 am
strained than ever. with israeli officials claiming there is proof the obama administration pushed for the u.n. resolution condemning settlements. in the meantime, prime minister benjamin netanyahu ordering a limit on all working ties with the 12 nations which backed the u.n. vote. oren liebermann is live for news jerusalem. oren, it looks like netanyahu is escalating this controversy by limiting these working ties with the countries that voted for the resolution. >> reporter: he hasn't backed down at all. under terms of what he said lashing out at the u.s. and showing angry remarks at countries that voted for it. he act the diplomatically. summoning the ambassadors of the countries that voted for it on christmas day and wrapping up the visits of the countries that voted for it. as for how his response is being taken, he says he is not concerned about that.
1:32 am
he says his response is quote responsible and vigorous and stood by it at every point. what is the next step? it could be secretary of state john kerry's vision for peace. he would lay that out in a speech with his view of the conflict. netanyahu's team not backing down in the last weeks of the obama administration. they accuse obama and his administration of being behind this u.n. resolution. drafting it, writing it and pushing it. here is the netanyahu spokesperson david keyes. >> we have ironclad information from sources in the arab world and internationally. we will share that information with the incoming administration through the proper channels. if the new administration chooses to share that information, that's their prerogative. it should give us pause that a terrorist organization like hamas which is calling for genocide of all jews is celebrating this decision. celebrating it because it distances the chances of peace. >> reporter: as for what that evidence is, this information,
1:33 am
evidence they have of the obama administration is behind this u.n. security council resolution, they have not put that evidence or information forward. we pushed israeli officials here in israel and jerusalem and officials in the u.s. so far all they say is they will present it to the next administration. obama's team has taken to the air in the u.s. and here to defend their decision to abstain. here is what ben rhodes had to say. >> it is not an ambush when obama and kerry have been saying if hundr in hundreds of conversations israeli settlement was pushing into the west bank that was making the two-state solution unachievable. >> reporter: we knew the relationship was strained. now we are seeing how quickly it is falling apart. netanyahu is clearly making it
1:34 am
known he is thrilled to work with incoming trump administration. >> should israel be concerned about other moves that the united nations could take in the next few weeks? >> reporter: alison, you are right. this resolution is essentially a recommendation or guideline. it has no teeth. there are no punishments in here. israel's concern is the follow-up on parameters. setting conditions for negotiations with israelis and palestinians. that would address the sensitive issues. that's what israel is concerned about. they know that could come in the next few weeks. it seems unlikely the obama administration would want to do that after what they had to go through with this one. israel knows the possibility is still out there. it is something they are trying to avert. >> originalen, thank you. it is back to work for the trump transition team today.
1:35 am

1:36 am
potenti potential, but right now it is a club for people to get together and talk and have a good time. so sad. >> wait, there is more. trump taking credit for the busy holiday shopping season. the world was gloomy before i won. there was no hope. now the market was up 10% and christmas spending is over $1 trillion. so there's no sourcing for that $1 trillion. there was a survey predicting it would be spent. this survey was done in september. i digress. the retail federation close to $655 billion. it is a good year. still not in line with the tweet. trump defending the charity days after announcing plans to dissolve it to avoid impression of conflict of interest. he said this. i gave millions of dollars to djt foundation. raised or received millions more. all of which given to charity and media won't report.

1:45 am
about all of the organizations they have been affiliated with since the age of 18. they have to name clients who pose conflicts of interest and all real estate holdings as well. wh while it is unlikely it will change the nominations, it will take time. that could slow trump's agenda. it will take time and money for the nominees who have to shell out money to make sure the ts are crossed and is are dotted. >> this is why public life is hard coming out of business into government. they start getting into your business. there is all this information that maybe you would not like everybody to know about at the end of the day. >> still possible. violence erupting at malls across the nation one day after christmas. look at this video. manchester, connecticut. you hear the people screaming and punches thrown in the shops
