d fit into your life, not the other way around. go to xfinity.com/myaccount north korea has just launched another ballistic missile. >> we're not looking to pick a fight but don't give us a reason to have one. there's a chance we could end up having a major, major conflict with north korea. obamacare, we're going to repeal it, we'll replace it. >> the american health care act -- >> it's important to work together. >> do you have the votes? >> right now i'm a no. >> i'm still a no. >> the best thing i think to the is to pull this bill. this is a disappointing day for us. >> who knew health care could be
3:01 am
so complicated. >> we'll build a great wall. >> the wall will get built. >> so help me god. >> congratulation congratulation. >> the newest member of the united states supreme court. >> i'm humbled by the trust placed in me. >> i got it done in the first 100 days. the first 100 days out of the nation's capital. >> of course. >> happy saturday. we're so grateful for your company. i'm paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. it's day 100 of the trump administration and president trump says that being president is tougher than he thought. we'll talk about that assessment in just a moment. north korea is determined to make life even more difficult for the president this morning after firing yet another ballistic missile. >> this is the 10th missile test since trump took office. the pentagon says this latest
3:02 am
exploded soon after launch. but the message from supreme leader kim jong-un is very clear. >> this is kim giving us the finger, giving china the finger, giving the u.n. the finger. the time cigarette planned and pre-ordained in his mind. this morning we have our team of correspondents covering this around the globe. cnn senior washington correspondent is watching this. let's go to will riply. good morning. >> reporter: here in north korea even though the rest of the world has been talking about this missile launch still no official acknowledgement by this regime that this happened which means every north korean from rocket scientists and supreme leader kim jong-un they have no idea. the message north korea was sending very clear. even though the missile only flu
3:03 am
22 miles, it was as that analyst said it was a missile finger to the united states. because the kind of missile they tested is the kind that north korea could eventually use to launch and sink potentially an aircraft carrier like "uss carl vinson". north korea remains defiant despite mounting international pressure calls for them not to test missiles or nuclear weapons. but officials say they will push forward despite what the world thinks. they say the united states is hostile and that they have a right to develop these weapons they feel to protect their national sovereignty. the view from the white house here's joe johns. >> reporter: the white house reaction to the milch launch was muted, overall leaving the impression that they were trying to downplay it. the president of the united states himself tweeted about it indicating in the first place
3:04 am
that north korea had disrespected the wishes of china's president with the launch. the president's words he used to describe this was bad with an exclamation point. a bit more from the national security council indicating this launch was cause for concern. nonetheless, she was asked at one point with an interview with cnn whether this was provocative, given the fact that the secretary of state had chaired a meeting at the united nations. of course, she said this was one of those situations that north korea had always been provocative. now to david mckenzie in beijing. >> reporter: here in beijing, silence. that's to be expected because china has said repeatedly it wants to calm the situation down and there has been strong words
3:05 am
at the security council from the foreign minister saying that really the only solution to the north korean crisis for all sides to ease off the rhetoric, to stop military moves of any kind and, in fact, to get to the negotiation table and talk. there's little sign that north korea will play ball with that. north korea has been ignoring china's pleas for years. there's a sense they are primed to wait this out, this current missile test and push towards more diplomacy. david, thank you so much. let's bring in our panel.
3:06 am
>> full house here. in the last 24 hours we have full condemnation on north korea from president trump, from rex tillerson, from prers of the uk, from japan. is this launch a reaction to all of these comments in the last 24 hours? >> it's a little difficult to speculate as to exactly what prompted this missile launch. it may take probably, and i would have to defer to a military expert some weeks to actually t-up a missile launch. it's a response to the kind of rhetoric we've been hearing more generally over the past week. i think what is a little concerning to people and allies in the international community, when you look at the u.s. response, is that we're seeing a division within the administration between the type of rhetoric we're hearing from president trump who just yesterday told reuters there's a chance of a major, major conflict with north korea, and the rhetoric that we're hearing from secretary of state rex tillerson which is much more
3:07 am
nuance, much calmer, saying we're not seeking reunification, we're not seeking any military action or regime change we're seeking denuclearization. are they playing good cop, bad cop thing or a lack of coherent strategy underpinning the reaction to north korea. that's what have people on edge. >> sara, yesterday the president tweeted this launch disrespected xi but this launch came after rex tillerson's comments at the u.n.. the president didn't frame it that way. >> his north korea strategy has centered around putting pressure on the chinese to bring pyongyang to heel. he knows that china has the most economic and diplomatic leverage with north korea and he's hoping to keep the u.s. out it as much as possible by trying to get the chinese to deal with it and he's vaguely threatened with the chinese if you don't take care of it the u.s. and their allies
3:08 am
will. >> what has to happen for china to align with the u.s., do you think? >> i think -- i think first of all, a little bit more of an understanding from this administration as to where china is. i think one of the most moments so far and there's been many in this administration, is when trump admitted that he actually didn't really understand the relationship between china and north korea until the president of china explained it to him. and then he's like oh, i understand. after a ten minute conversation that he had with the president of china. and so i think that what underscores a lot what has people on edge this administration doesn't have a strategy. from the top down especially from trump's perspective there's a huge lack of understanding of what the reality is, not just with china but with what is
3:09 am
going on in that area in the world at the moment. so i'm hoping that tillerson and the military strategist and nikki haley and his team do have some experience in this are the ones who will be talking the mantle in terms of what our strategy is moving forward. >> we're hearing discrepancies that there would be no conversations with north korea and then we heard from rex tillerson yes there's a possibility we'll talk with north korea. >> yes. i would argue, she speculated there's perhaps a good cop/bad cop scenario going on. that might be the case. i think there has been progress on the china front. china has cut off coal imports. and threatened to cut off oil exports. they even said according to rex tillerson they would levy sanctions if, in fact, north
3:10 am
korea did do a nuclear test. they just did a ballistic missile test not a nuclear test but those are some changes on the china front and those are significant, i would argue, forms of progress that could really make progress in the north korea front. >> what's the truth there? if china is putting pressure on the north koreans we had two attempted tests, military tests in two weeks what's the fruit of what we're seeing, the pressure the president put on china. >> the fruit china would like to see from the president is a calmer tone and less provocation, at least from their perspective in dealing with a very complex nuance issue that involves a lot of world leaders and experts trying to get north korea to respond well and appropriately in a way that does not harm anyone else and that moves everyone together in terms of responding more diplomatically. >> we're watching the missile test but i think everybody is bracing for not nuclear test.
3:11 am
that's the red line that if crossed then what does the u.s. do >> we don't really know exactly what president trump's red line is. he seems to be more than willing to use military force. in fact now every problem seems to be a nail for him because he felt there was some -- he had some political support after the strikes on syria. we don't know what president trump's red line is. beyond that we don't know what the young mr. kim's red line is either and that's what has people very nervous because his father while undoubtedly an unpredictable character was not as erratic, was not an unknown commodity. we've seen him quite clearly trying to assert himself both internally and internationally. we expo he's willing to go quite far. this is one of a dozen tests this year alone. so clearly he has an objective in mind. the question is that objective to get people to the negotiating
3:12 am
table to try to extract more aid, more concessions, or is he potentially more of a magnet. is he willing to cross that line? no one knows the answer. that's what's disconcerting about saying we're doing away with strategic patience but we don't know what we're doing, we're not bringing in a new policy. >> everybody stick around. we have a lot more to talk about. president trump promised to take on corruption and collusion within washington even signing a contract with the american voter, here it is. saying so. is president trump draining the swamp? the divided states. cnn drove across the country finding out what voters think. how happy are his most staunch supporters? how do you think trump is doing? >> i think he's doing good. >> i don't regret having voted

. let's talk about the trump administration and russia after now 100 days of denials, recusals and resignations no end in sight when it comes to the allegations for the trump administration. the defense department is now investigating former nationl security adviser michael flynn. donald trump is doubling down on his claims that he's not to blame here. >> i do feel badly for him. he served the country. he was a general. just remember, he was approved by the obama administration at the highest level. and when they say we didn't vet, well obama, i guess, didn't vet. >> there are for you separate congressional investigations into russia's influence over the election and the trump administration. we're back with our panel right
3:18 am
now. let's talk about flynn real quickly here. i want to ask, was it the right thing to do to pass the buck to the obama administration in this case? >> look, i think what president trump was getting at is a broader point he should have brought up earlier. folks are acting as if mike flynn was some random person donald trump grabbed off the street to be national security adviser but he was appointed by obama -- >> it speaks to the administration's vetting or not vetting of him. >> making a point this is someone who was checked out, received a national security clearance, decorated general. he is making the point i thought this was someone i could have confidence in. >> obama fired him as well. >> obama did fire him but apparently according to flynn the firing was because flynn was raising the flag saying terrorism is a problem, we should be looking into groups of isis and there was a fundamental
3:19 am
ideological disagreement. i don't think obama fired him over purported russia connections. >> it shines the light even in a brighter way to whether there's something to hide with trump and the administration because every time that he deflects i think is indicative, why are they doing that? why are they not embracing a full on investigation. why aren't they saying yes people should be concerned about what happened here. let's find out. flynn was not somebody they picked off the street. he did work for the obama administration and he was fired to your point. there should be a huge red flag because this is not somebody that any administration should have as their national security adviser. the fact that they ignored that and now trying to pass the buck i think gives even more suspicion not just to the american people but to everybody doing these investigations into possible collusion between the trump administration or campaign
3:20 am
and the russians and they should go the opposite root and embrace a full on investigation. the fact they haven't done that speaks volumes. >> it's interesting, i thought had the trump administration not hired him, would we even be having this investigation into general flynn? >> no, i don't think we would. if general flynn continued his life as a private citizen this seems to be a relatively minor infraction that might be routine. the flynn situation is a great example how the trump administration has in a lot of ways made the russian controversy worse for themselves simply by not being forthcoming at the beginning and then only reluctantly answering questions once new information comes to light. it's important to note none of these collusion allegations have been substantiated but the trump administration hasn't helped itself by dodging at every point. >> the shift we've seen from the president, from the campaign to
3:21 am
now. if vladimir putin likes donald trump that's a good thing to now where this is the worst the relationship has been. he talks again of cold war stances. this reset is going the way of the bush reset and obama reset that the president is now learning relationship is not just person to person. >> i think the russians were always a little bit cautious with their expectations because they know how the cycle of history has usually treated the russian-u.s. relationship. but there was a moment of optimism early on. there was excitement about the disruption to the u.s. election. you were hearing rhetoric from the trump administration about potentially recognizing crimea, about potentially lifting sanctions. you had sort of a lot of russian nuders, whether manafort or michael flynn. so potentially there was a moment in time there where you could move the relationship in a very different direction. ultimately the russians have seen the writing on the wall,
3:22 am
they know the trump administration is under a huge amount of pressure to try to engaging some major damage control with regards to all of these russian allegations and some might argue the trump administration did just that when they bombed those syrian -- that syrian airbase because it took the pressure off of them internally and path lot of pressure on the relationship with russia. the russians right now are thinking okay this relationship is probably not going anywhere positive in the near term future. >> jason chaffetz said flynn may have broken a law. if he did, eugene, literally break a law what does that mean to the trump administration if anything else for optics not just russia but the u.s. >> what it seems to me for the trump administration to him it's obama's fault. the reality, though, is that he's going to be held accountable for the people he brought into the white house and not just for what he did but for michael flynn's action.
3:23 am
we have texas lawmaker on "new day" yesterday saying at the end of the day it's not trump's fault primarily or president obama's fault primarily it's this person, michael flynn's fault for what he did and to be held accountable for that. >> it seems that there's a reluctance on the part of the president, on the part of the white house to take up the true mantra that the buck stops here. >> i don't think there's a reluctance. what is motivating trump administration with the flynn situation is loyalty. he embraced flynn yesterday. the president does not like throwing people under the bus that were on his side particularly in the foreign policy establishment. there's no one on his side from the get go. mike flynn was the one guy along with carter page who stuck their neck out.
3:24 am
now we're seeing why, because they have problems of their own. it would bar them from being involved with other candidates going forward. i think he's reluctant to throw people under the bus. everybody thank you so much. taking down corruption and collusion. president trump vowed to drain the swamp. but is he living up to his own promise? we'll take a look at his contract with the american voter. great grains cereals are made from delicious clusters, real fruit, wholesome nuts and crunchy flakes. good things come together to make one great thing. great grains. why be good when you can be great? i tell them the thickness of your enamel determines patients they ask me about whitening all of the time. essentially how white your teeth are going to be. the strength of your teeth needs to be there in order for that whiteness to last. i would definitely recommend the new pronamel strong and bright to my patients

100 days. day 100 of the trump presidency other than in washington. so glad to have you with us here. despite the president calling the 100 day benchmark ridiculous the president says his 100 days have been great. >> my fellow americans i truly believe the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country's history. >> president trump based the agenda for much of his 100 days in office on the promises he made in a contract he struck with the american voter including cleaning up the quote corruption and special interest collusion in washington. is he actually draining the swamp? ♪ proud to be an american >> it was then candidate donald

trump's contract with the american voter. three detailed action plans that the campaign promised the trump administration would pursue starting on day one. he signed the contract in october and framed i want as the ration rationale for his candidacy. >> on november 8 americans will be vote forge this 100 day plan to restore prosperity to our nation, security to our community. >> at the top of the list six measures the campaign promised would clean up corruption and collusion of special interest in washington, d.c. >> first a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of congress. [ applause ] >> the white house has not offered a proposal on term limits. >> second, the hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition exempting military and public safety and public health.
3:31 am
>> during his first week in office president trump signed an executive order freezing hiring but what freeze lasted 7 days. earlier it was announced it's over. >> we'll end the hiring freeze today. start allowing agencies to start hiring in a smart fashion. some have to continue to get smaller. some will get bigger consistent with the president's budget. >> third, a requirement that for every new federal regulation two existing regulations must be eliminated. >> the president kept this promise on january 30th he signed an executive order reducing regulations. promise for you, a five year ban on white house and congressional officials becoming lobbyists after leaving government service. a january 28th executive order on ethics reform addressed white house officials but not congress. and promise five a lifetime ban on white house officials lob jig

confident person. >> i have a different take. i think that this is -- i agree it was a candid moment. but it also lays bear he misled his supporters and they bought it. the majority of the american people didn't buy it. the majority of the american people didn't vote for him. why some of his approval ratings is some of the worst of any american president. his problem moving forward is, so hopefully he's gotten some humility. it turns out if you want to be good at governing and politics and policy you have to have some experience at governing and politics and policy. his disdain for people who have lived and worked in washington and dedicated their lives in public service was so clear during the campaign and it did work for his supporters, but he now has got to understand that he's got to surround himself
3:39 am
with people that know what's going on. the most recent poll on cnn says the majority of the american people believe that the white house team that he's put together is not a good one and i think it's reflecting what is going on or the lack of what's going on. >> speaking of which, the senior administration official yesterday told cnn that secretary tillerson is planning to cut 9% to 10% of the state department. seems like there's a collusion of intent here. one person might say hey he said he will create jobs. why are they taking them. another might say he's draining the swamp. how do they move forward with messages that collide. >> something people want to know especially considering the number of foreign affairs issues occupying the headlines right now on top of the fact that there are significant numbers of positions that are already not filled in this administration and whether or not they can continue to do more and move forward on these issues that
3:40 am
seem to be concerning everyone with even less remains to be seen. there's certainly some doubt that they are handling situations well right now. how well they can do it with even fewer people is not clear. >> every president learns on the job. every new president is learning things they didn't know before. this president there's been some would call them shifts, some call them coming to the realities of the job. his supporters, where do they see this? you got the cnn poll that's 96% regret vote forge him. >> i think there's a few sacred issues if president trump were to alter his position his supporters would revolt and that would be when it comes to enforcing immigration laws, when it comes to trade. there are other issues that his supporters don't care about that he flipflops on. some of these foreign policy issues, whether he's more of an
3:41 am
int interventionist or non-interventionist. president trump was more pragmatic than he was ideological and that lends itself to being more mallable on these issues. >> a lot of people vote forward him because they saw him as essentially the savior of the economy. am i over the top in saying that? that's what they believed. now with this tax proposal people came out and said this is a tax cut proposal not a tax reform proposal. to that you say what? >> i would default to the reagan years, 92 months of post-war growth. it was a success. in large part due to tax cuts. others would argue. tax cuts are a job saving mechanism. one thing i want to point out a little footnote to what sara said is that the population element of his base will revolt if pre-existing conditions come out a very popular part of
3:42 am
obamacare, the 26-year-old provision allowing you to stay on your parents plan. these are popular elements. there's a real risk the freedom caucus will try to drive the president away from his ways and be very bad for the president. >> on trade i just wanted to see what you thought about this because he now is saying he won't renegotiate nafta at least for the moment. do you think that he'll pay a price with his supporters. >> the flipflop you're referring to earlier this week he was threatening to pull out. >> he'll renegotiate. >> it's consistent what he said on the campaign trail. i don't think he's walked away from the nafta position. >> it's one of the issues. he says something today but not even tomorrow but in an hour he could say something completely 180 degrees opposite. >> we'll talk about nafta and health care, repeal and replace throughout morning. thanks for being with us this morning. after 100 days in office.
