10:00 am
hello. i'm boris sanchez filling in for wolf blitzer. it is 1:00 p.m. here in new york. wherever you're watching from around the world, we thank you so much. we're hoping you have a wonderful thanksgiving, and we're thankful you're here with us. we start with president trump and his message for america today. happy thanksgiving and you're
10:01 am
welcome. first here's the tweet. "happy thanksgiving. your country is starting to dee really well. jobs coming back, highest stock market ever, military getting really strong. we will build the wall. va taking care of our vets. great supreme court justice, record cuts and regulations. lowest unemployment in 17 years." then the president spoke to troops in a teleconference from his office in mar-a-lago. >> we're really winning. we know how to win. but we have to let you win. we weren't letting you win before. they were letting you play even. we're letting you win. we're doing well at hole. thechy is doing really great. when you come back you're going to see with the jobs and companies coming back into our country, and the stock market just hit a record high. unemployment's the lowest its been in 17 years. so you're fighting for something real. you're fighting for something
10:02 am
good. >> cnn senior white house correspondent jeff zeleny is in sunny palm beach, florida. the president and the first lady also paid a visit to the coast guard. what was the message there. >> reporter: boris, they did indeed. they traveled to a coast guard station not from from his resort in mar-a-lago. and he was thanking the coast guard. it's actually one of the branch of the military service not thought of as much perhaps as the military or the navy. the president was thanking the members of the coast guard directly for all their help. and after he did that, he went onto talk about how well he believes the country is doing during his almost first year in office. >> the stock market on friday hit the all-time high, the highest its ever been, ever. your whole long life. and that means your 401ks and all of the things you have.
10:03 am
even if you're in the military, you have a country that's really starting to turn. we want to have a strong country. we want to have a country where i can buy new coast guard cutters and not have to worry about it. >> reporter: so the president certainly talking about that record high stock market. left out of the message there perhaps should be on his list of thankfulness is the state of it kma economy when he arrived in office. janet yellin, the out going fed chair was responsible for keeping interest rates low 3467 president obama, of course, left the economy in far better shape than he inherited it. but president trump again making the case he is responsible for this. to some degree he is with the confidence he's injected into the markets. one last thing here. we just got word a short time ago what the trumps will be having for dinner at mar-a-lago. it's a traditional thanksgiving fair with mashed potatoes, a turkey and some florida specials thrown in there with florida
10:04 am
crabs and snappers as well. he'll be having dinner tonight later in mar-a-lago. boris. >> shorts, flip-flops and stone crab, doesn't get much better than that. jeff zeleny, happy thanksgiving and thank you. let's get some thoughts on the president's messages to troops from cedric laden. he joins us via skype from huntington, pennsylvania. happy thanksgiving to you. we thank you for taking time out on this thanksgiving to chat with us. what did you like about the president's message to service members? >> well, boris, happy thanksgiving to you and everyone at cnn. and just want to think that when it comes to the president's message it was really good that he included the coast guard. that was superb. it was very important to recognize that branch of the armed forces. i also like he had a winning philosophy when it came to his
10:05 am
discussion about afghanistan. and i also liked the idea he included military families. that is exceedingly important because every time we talk about the sacrifices that military members make, you look at the sacrifices that are also made by military families and those considerable sacrifices are ones that are not always recognized, and it's about time that they are. >> yeah, we can't say enough about the sacrifices not only do these service members make but also their families especially being away from their loved ones during holidays like this one. but the president also talked about tax reform and the stock market. how do you think the service members received that? >> well, they work under a different set of incentives compare today the private sector, boris. to someone who has served, to me, it looks as if that is something that is not really pertinent to a service member or to the people that are
10:06 am
supporting that service member. yes, it is true that they are defending the country, and when they defend the country they defend the nation's economy. but talking about 401ks and the stock market, that is important but ancillary to what they do. no matter how high the stock market is, they are going to be defending our country. >> the president also thanked the troops for progress being made in the fight against isis. but he also took a swipe at the obama administration. listen to this. >> the fight against isis, it's coming our way. it's coming our way. big, big difference. lot of things have happened. they say we've made more progress against isis than they did in years of the previous administration. and that's because i'm letting you do your job. >> what's the biggest difference between this administration and the last one in terms of fighting isis, and how much credit does the president
10:07 am
deserve for that progress that we've seen? >> well, boris, the biggest difference is that right now we're on that winning stretch that the president talked about. but the difference is this. that winning stretch really took place before president trump's election. and it was true that the obama administration was a bit slow to recognize the danger that isis posed, and there was a real danger that iraq would fall. isis came very close to baghdad. people will recall. but the issue was this. he was taking credit for a victory that is really the credit of both administrations. and he's also taking credit for something that the troops came in and helped the iraqi's achieve. so this is more of an iraqi victory, more of a kurdish victory than it is a u.s. victory. although we did absolutely help and we helped in difficult conditions. >> colonel, we have to leave it
10:08 am
there. once again thank you for your time on thanksgiving. >> you bet. happy thanksgiving, sir. two searches in a race against time. today the argentine navy revealing that a noise near the sub's last known location is consistent with an explosion. the subdisappeared last week with 44 crew members aboard. and in asia the frantic search for three missing sailors expanding. american ships and planes are patrolling hundreds of miles across the philippine sea. i want to bring in admiral john kirby. admiral, you've spent almost three decades in the navy. let's start with the submarine off the coast of argentina. what do you make of this new information that there was apparently a sound heard, a sound recorded that was consistent with an explosion? >> yeah, this is based off hitroacoustic sensors in the bottom of the ocean used to
10:09 am
determine whether or not there's nuclear testing going on under sea or underground. and they picked aup this sort of violent nonnatural sound around the time the submarine was lost contact with. so it's ominous, boris. it certainly doesn't bode well. but i think we need to be real careful right now to change the character of discussion that's going on right now, which is the rescue operation. that's the why the u.s. army and argentinen army are treating this thing. they're using all information available to try and locate the submarine in the ocean. >> admiral, an international effort is underway right now to try and find the submarine. every hour is becoming precious. how much more time do you think rescuers have left? >> well, it's hard to say. when they lost contact with the
10:10 am
submarine, the estimate was they had about seven or eight days provisions onboard. maybe less time than that assuming they could make oxygen for themselves. so clearly we're on the outer limits of that window. it's been about a week. and that's not good. it's not good we haven't had in contact with that submarine in that time. it's a race against the clock. i think everybody's treating it that way. which is why now you've got the russians coming onboard with some deep sea assets. everybody pitching in to try and do what they can. >> admiral, we have to turn to that downed missing plane and the search for three missing sailors. eight people were rescued and apparently in good condition, which is good news. but do you think everyone involved in the crash is going to be concentrated in that same area or do they have to look further out? >> so what's happening now as you would expect after a day or so, they're expanding the area they're looking at. that's because they knew where the plane went it down, and when
10:11 am
they didn't find anything more in that area, it just makes sense you'd want to expand it. i can tell you that the navy is still hopeful that they can find somebody, that they're still considering this a rescue. and that's the right approach for now. and they're devoting -- it is also an international effort. not just from the u.s. navy side but the japanese side as well. >> those accidents taking place so close in those waters. thank you so much for the time, sir, and happy thanksgiving. >> thank you, boris. one of the president's top advisers accused of breaking an ethics law again. this time for her comments set in front of the white house. details on that next. plus is the president taking hits with him in his office. the organization walking away from another struggling project. we'll explain. and a high profile democrat and one of the architects of obamacare slamming the clinton

10:17 am
during an interview on conservative radio, moore said this about his two accusers. including one who said she was just 14 years old at the time. >> i did not these two women. >> so you definitely didn't know beverly nelson. >> i didn't know beverly nelson, and i didn't know leigh corfman. and i never dated underage women and i never engaged with sexual misconduct with anybody. you have to understand i was deputy district at or near and circuit judge. i go by the law. there's law and you enforce it and then you violate it. you just don't do that, and i didn't do that. and that's what is very hurtful. >> congressional correspondent sunlen serfaty is in washington. he says he's considering legal
10:18 am
action. what do you we know about that. >> reporter: well, he's very vague on this point for us. we only know what he said on that radio show, which frankly isn't backed up at all. he said they're looking for any evidence to potentially take legal action against the accusers. and of course we know he's threatened to take legal action against "the washington post" who first broke this stor e. but he wouldn't address any specifics at all, and frankly, not sure how serious that claim is. >> now, sunlen, on that conservative radio show moore alluded to conspiracy. what exactly did he say. >> reporter: that's right. this is one of the eyebrow raising moments of the interview. here's what he had to say. >> this was a complete shock out of left field. and it came the day after they said i was 11 points ahead. and this is shock to the
10:19 am
democrats. they saw a seat in alabama that they could take, and they had the support of someone in the washington establishment doesn't really care. they want who they can handle. >> reporter: and keep in mind this was a comfort zone of force for judge moore. exactly where he likes to be arguing about the establishment. and really attempting to refrain these allegations as something that was cooked up by his political enemies here against him. so no doubt moore intended to fire up his base. >> sunlen, thank you so much for the reporting. and happy thanksgiving as well. once again kellyanne conway is in trouble over endorsements. she's being accused of breaking the law that says that members of administration can't advocate for or against a specific candidate, the hatch act. here's the interview from fox news that's in question. you be the judge. >> doug jones in alabama, folks, don't be fooled. he'll be a vote against tax cuts. he's weak on crime, weak on borders. he's strong on raising your
10:20 am
taxes. he's terrible for property owners. >> so vote roy moore? >> i'm telling you that we want the votes in the senate to get this tax bill through. >> here's the white house response to the allegation that she violated the hatch act. "miz conway did not advocate for or against a candidate and specifically declined to encourage alabamians to vote a certain way." laura, happy thanksgiving. please help us understand how this came up and take us through both sides of the argument. >> reporter: happy thanksgiving, boris. so the former head of the government office of ethics walter shaub, formed a formal complaint yesterday essentially saying she has violated a federal law by endorsing a candidate for office. you notice she stopped short of actually endorsing moore, but she laid out the reasons why one would want to vote for moore
10:21 am
because of course she's against the democratic candidate doug jones. the white house is pushing back here saying she didn't do anything wrong, she didn't formally endorse more so she should not be sanctioned. >> kellyanne conway was under fire for almost the same thing in february but talking about clothing. listen to this. >> nobody but ivanka's stuff. i'm going to go get some myself today. it's a wonderful line. i'm going to give a free commercial here hooch go pi it today, everybody. buy it online. >> she's talking about ivanka trump's fashion line. what was the decision then, and are these cases any different. >> right, so two different federal law, but they both sort of go to the same thing. the hatch act here as to do with endorsing a candidate. in that situation she was endorsing a product. and the federal ethic laws on the books explicitly say that public employees are not allowed to do that. but they're both related to the
10:22 am
scope of what a public employee can do in their capacity as an executive branch official. and in the ethics case, you'll remember the white house had said they'd counsel her, but she did not face any discipline. we'll have to wait and see whether she faces any in this case, boris. >> we should point out that would have to come from the president himself. we have to leave it there. thank you. >> thanks, boris. facebook now making a big announcement about your accounts and whether you interacted with russian trolls. and the war of words. why can't either of them just let it go? and new today tens of thousands of names purged from the fbi's background check system when it comes to buying guns. we'll explain why.

a high profile democrat says the clinton administration doubled down on abusive behavior in response to sexual misconduct allegations. former health and human services kgt lean sabine criticizes both clintons for attacking the victims instead of copfronting the issue. here's what she said on the pod cast hosted by david axelrod. >> not only did people look the other way, but they went after the women who came forward and accused him. so it doubled down on not only bad behavior but abusive
10:28 am
behavior. and then people attacked the victims. ask you can watch that same pattern repeat. and it -- it needs to end. it needs to be over. >> let me ask you a delicate question. was that fair criticism of hillary, that she participated in that effort? >> absolutely. i think it's very fair. >> let's bring in cnn political commentators doug high and maria cor dona. thank you both for joining us on this thanksgiving. i know you want to get to that cran bury sauce, so we'll try to get this done as quickly as possible. how do you respond to that idea especially the idea that hillary clinton is also to blame? >> i'll say this. it's clearly an issue democrats are going through now, certainly a reckoning of what happened during the bill clinton days especially as more women are
10:29 am
coming out as they should and are being believed and very aggressive about what happened to them. this is certainly a cultural tipping point, if aiowill, or at least hoping going towards that tipping point where things will definitely have a change. but i'll say this. look, let's remember back in the 1990s what kathleen subilious says sort of doesn't take into consideration that many democrats, in fact a vast majority of democrats prosecuteally condemned what bill clinton did. they were not happy with what was going on. they understood that he was putting the progressive agenda at risk and said so prominently every single day while this whole thing was going on. i think that is something people do forget. and the second thing i'll say is that if this happened now and the whole scenario happened again with what we are going through, bill clinton probably would not survive. so it is certainly a difference of times that we are going through right now. but the same way that democrats are going through a reckoning of bill clinton, i think it's also
10:30 am
important to realize that republicans need boo be going through the same thing because they actually look the other way maybe not even as much as a year ago when they put a sexual predator in office who is in office right now. >> doug, kathleen subilious not the only democrat talking about this reckoning and how it apply tuesday the clintons. last week you had senator kirsten gillibrand who replaced clinton in the senate. saying hillary clinton should have resigned. she sort of back-pedaled. do you think times have changed to the point where someone needs to apologize for the behavior that took place in the '90s now? >> well, i think times have changed in ten different ways. and the question of whether or not bill clinton would survive isn't just based on how we're now listening and believing women. it also comes with how we
10:31 am
communicate, the means we use. but i think important for democrats whether or not bill clinton apologizes or not, if you listen to what maliyah said, i agree with what maria said. the problem is democrats and maria are talking about bill clinton's presidency which was 16 years ago. if they're instead of don't stop think about tomorrow bill clint en, don't stop thinking about 16 years ago bill clinton and they're not looking forward, they have this real risk of squandering the opportunity to take back theous house and senate. they really need to challenge donald trump and not look back. >> agree with that. >> let's talk about president trump and his recent twitter feuds. he's taken on nfl players for kneeling during the national anthem. he called lavar ball, one of the fathers of the players detained in china a fool.
10:32 am
do you think this is trying to shore up his base in a designed distraction dog whistle-type way or is it just that the president can't help himself and loves these hostile interactions? >> i don't think they're necessarily mutually exclusive. when we talk about donald trump fighting with the father of a basketball player or a hispanic judge or the gold star family who lost their son in the war, we're not talking about those things that donald trump doesn't want us talking about. so what have we not talked about this week? we haven't talked about jared kushner and the investigations that are looking further into potential problems there. that's the benefit for the president, but it's also two sides of a coin. it also means we're not spending as much time talking about tax reform, which is something we need the president out there very proactively talking about if republicans hope to pass it. >> maria, i get the impression you might think that the
10:33 am
president should continue tweeting and not try to push for tax reform. >> by all means i welcome his tweeting every day, every single min of the the day. but i actually agree with doug. he does this because i do think that he knows the white house knows -- i think the white house is actually frustrated by his tweeting. but he knows he doesn't have any real legislative wins to show for. after a year in office, after so many promises he made the country, the only way to shore up his base, which is where he kinds of goes to save face is do this thing, attack and double down on those attacks. his base loves that, and it also keeps them distracted from the fact he hasn't really met any of the promises he promised them. and what you're going to see going into 2018 to doug's earlier point, is that democrats really are going to focus on donald trump's massive failures. there's a reason why he is
10:34 am
historically the president that has had the lowest approval ratings after a year in office. you know, the majority of americans did not vote for him. the majority of americans do not believe he is fit for this office, has a temperament for his office and is good for the country. and those are the 'ings democrats are going to focus ongoing into 2018. >> doug, you mentioned the president going out there to sell tax reform to the american people. but he also to some degree has to sell it to his own party. and there are precious few votes republicans can lose to get this thing passed. the president has been vocal in his criticism of somech. one before included arizona senator jeff flake. is the president hurting his chang chan chances by going after members of his own party that way? should he tone it down? >> absolutely, he should. we know in washington you talk
10:35 am
about carrots and sticks. if you're jeff flake and you're retiring, you don't have any ti sticks that can be used against you. he would do a great service to his own legislative agenda. the problem is the president often can't get out of his own way. >> maria, very quickly to you. how do democrats try to fight this tax reform bill? it seems like it's heading toward a direction they don't like. >> i think they emphasize what a big kiss this would be to billionaires and millionaires and corporate america. and that middle class and working class families are essentially going to get screwed. and it goes against many of the promises trump made even to his own base. and those are the kinds of things democrats are going to continue to underscore. >> enjoy the turkey and cranberry and please save some

the trump organization is walking away from a struggling real estate project. so is this another sign of trouble for the brand? the trump soho in manhattan is cutting ties with the president's organization and dropping the trump name altogether. the condominium hotel first opened in 2008, but it has been
10:41 am
struggling in recent years. jeremy diamond joins us. jeremy, not the first property to drop the trump name. what does it mean for this property and the trump organization? >> what it means concretely is you're going to be seeing some workers get up on scaffolder and take off those letters. this comes after this property has struggled financially particularly in the last year. they've struggled to fill rooms in the hotel part of the building, even dropping rates below what would be standard for a luxury five-star hotel in new york. they've struggled to some of the condose in that building. and they've even seen a restaurant close. all of that happening in the last year. so the trump organization and the cim group that actually owns the company, parting ways meaning the trump name is gone from the property and the trump organization will no longer be managing those day to day operations. >> do you think this is sign that the trump brand has lost
10:42 am
some of its luster over the controversies this president has had to face? >> it's interesting. this is not the first building, trump organization building that has suffered in the last year or so. you know we also saw a trump international hotel in toronto dropping the trump name. we saw owners of three residential buildings in new york also deciding to drop the trump name. and mar-a-lago, of course, where the president is spending thanksgiving that property has also struggled with about 19 charities according to "the washington post," deciding not to held previously scheduled events at that property. so they have definitely seen a hit in revenue at a lot of these trump branded properties. and a lot of that is attributed of course to the divisive nature of this president's time at the white house. however, we have also seen the flip side of that. which is that properties like trump international hotel in washington and even mar-a-lago now are starting to attract a lot of these republican conservative groups and even some foreign, you know, foreign
10:43 am
dip mats who want to perhaps try and curry favor with this white house. the president of course still owns these properties and seized part of the profits here. we don't quite have that spreadsheet here to get whether it's a net positive or a net loss? but certainly what we're seeing is some properties struggling, some properties benefitting all because of the trump brand. >> jeremy diamond, always a pleasure to see you, sir. happy thanksgiving. >> you too. three officials set to interview with special counsel robert mueller. the details on that. plus the growing list of trump associates with russia communications. we break down the numbers for you. facts first next on cnn. gling with belly pain and constipation, and you're overwhelmed by everything you've tried-- all those laxatives, daily probiotics, endless fiber-- it could be wearing on you. tell your doctor what you've tried, and how long you've been at it. linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation.

it can help relieve your belly pain and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children less than six and it should not be given to children six to less than eighteen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. ask your doctor if 90 days of linzess may be right for you. did yon the national debt?ssman get elected by talking tough will they stay true to their words? or did they promise you one thing... only to do another? right now, congress is talking about tax cuts that will add trillions to our national debt and hurt our economy. it's time to tell congress...

whether donald trump says it is a hoax or not, the russia investigation is inching closer to the president's inner circle. investigators on special counsel robert mueller's team will soon be interviewing key white house officials as part of his ongoing probe into whether the trump campaign colluded with russian officials to influence the 2016 presidential election. on the list, white house communications director hope hicks, white house counsel don megan and a communications aide to jared kushner. shimon, give us the big picture on the russia investigation. >> right, so our researcher here, martial cohen, put together this great list. and what we have found if you look at the numbers, just a large number. it's kind of staggering there have been at least 19 face-to-face interactions between trump associates and russians. some 51 communications,
10:49 am
meetings, phone calls, exchanges involving russians or discussions of russia. and last lee we calculated about 12 trump associates who had contacts with russians. now, some of them like the attorney general, jeff sessions who didn't reveal he met with the russian ambassador during the campaign to donald trump, jr. and jared kushner who attended a meeting at trump tower where a russian lawyer claimed to have dirt on hillary clinton. and there's also former national security advisor michael flynn whose under investigation for communicating with the russian ambassador. and then, you know, there are the big bombshell that came last month that george papadopoulos, a campaign advisor pleaded guilty for lying to the fbi about meetings with russians in europe. and he is now cooperating with the fbi. and despite all this, there have been nine blanket denials by trump and his senior officials there have been any contacts with russians during the
10:50 am
campaign or that there were any ties between the campaign and russians. and boris, as you said, we expect in the coming weeks hope hicks and others to be interviewed about all this by the special counsel. >> shimon, tell us about this, by thewith russian propaganda? >> yeah, so this is kind of an interesting way of perhaps being somewhat transparent for facebook. this has to do obviously with some of the fake news, some of the ads that the russians bought on facebook. and the only way that users are going to be able to know if they've interacted with a fake ad or a fake news let's say report would be if they liked it or commented on the -- perhaps whatever it is that was on facebook. but, you know, this doesn't take into account whether someone may have just read something on facebook or seen something on facebook without liking it or commenting on it.
10:51 am
and they estimate that some 150 million people may have read something, received something that was connected to russia. but this is a step, perhaps, there way of being more transparent. they've come under some fire, taken some heat because of the revelation that russia was buying these ads. >> i can think of a couple of family members that are going to be seeing that thing pinging on their facebook pages. shimon prokupecz, happy thanksgiving. thank you so much, sir. a deal has been reached to stop a massacre in myanmar, but as thousands are brutally murdered at the hands of militants, will it actually help? ♪ just look at those two.

10:56 am
between the two countries. many of the details of the plan are still being worked out but we do know it's set to begin in two months. the group known as the rohingya are muslims who live in majority buddhist myanmar. they're often described at the world's most persecuted minority. they've been flying since august, running from a military crackdown that the u.s. said constituted ethnic cleansing, but there are questions whether the refugees even want to return after the horrors they've witnessed. senior international correspondent clarissa ward travelled to the border of those two nations to speak with refugees. we should warn you, there are some disturbing images in this piece. >> reporter: it's just a few hundred yards to safety, but it doesn't take long to see that something has gone very wrong. a woman's limp body is rushed through the no man's land between bangladesh and myanmar. as anxious families wait to see what has happened.
10:57 am
on this day, it is a husband and wife. the crowd says they were shot dead as they tried to leave myanmar. they're among more than 600,000 rohingya muslims who have flooded this border to escape what the united nations has called a textbook example of ethnic cleansing. each, it seems, has a tale more harrowing than the next. this man says he fled a brutal massacre in his village of tula toli. my sons and daughters were shot on thursday, i can't find them, he says. there's no one left. he claims local officials told residents it was safe to remain in the village but that days later the myanmar military poured in and carried out a bloodbath. please, someone kill me, he crews. -- recries.
10:58 am
>> this is god's will. other who's escaped tula toli tell a similar story. rehana says the soldiers rounded them up on the river bank and separated the men from the women. we couldn't escape. many children were shot and they fell on their faces, she recalls. those lying on the ground were picked up, chopped and later they were thrown into the river. cell phone footage given to cnn by tula toli residents appears to show the bodies of three children wash up on the shore. as witnesses cry to god for mercy. cnn cannot confirm the authenticity of the video or verify the many accounts. access to the state is heavily restricted, but we wanted to find out more about what happened in tula toli. so we traveled to a sprawling

refugee camp along the border and met 30-year-old mumtez. she says that burmese soldiers raped her before setting the house alight with her inside. but the burns that cover her body only hint at the horror she survived. >> describe to me what happened to you. what did you see with your own eyes exactly? my sununu my boy was just behind me and they hit him with a wooden stick and he collapsed to the ground dead. his head was split open, she says. then they took my other son from my lap and threw him into the fire. she managed to escape with her 7-year-old daughter razia. all three of her sons were killed. oh, god, she cries. why didn't you take me? but for the survivors of tula toli, there is no justice in this world.
