7:07 am
carrier deal. "wall street journal's" editorial board called it a shakedown that will hurt workers and the economy. "the new york times" said the populist appeal outweighs its practical effect. bernie sanders told us the deal sets a dangerous precedent. >> we have to tell corporate america that if they want defense contracts, that if they want to be good corporate citizens, they are not going to throw american workers on the street. you don't bribe them with large tax breaks. >> president-elect trump said there will be consequences including high taxes, for companies that leave the country. an extraordinary confrontation between trump and clinton campaign strategists shows the bitterness of the election has not faded. the two sides faced off yesterday at a harvard university forum that is held every four years. it's usually a respectful look back at the campaign, but the meeting descended into a shouting match, according to the "the washington post." nancy cordes was there at
7:08 am
nancy, tell us all about it. >> reporter: the most contentious moments came about 90 minutes into the session as the trump aides describing the brilliance of their ceo steve bannon. that was too much for the clinton campaign and clinton communications director jennifer palmieri started to push back and calling out the white house chief strategist who was not at the meeting when she called is harnessing racial undertones to win. you'll hear audio of her and then kellyanne conway argued clinton lost because of not connecting to white class voters. >> if providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a bit tactician, i'm glad to have lost. >> do you think i ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform? are you going to look me in the face and tell me that? >> it did.

wow, i mean, #he'syourpresident. how is that. >> #if he is going to be my president then he needs to show me that white supremacy is not acceptable just steps -- >> a million times you know and now you're just lying! >> a couple of hours later at his indiana rally, donald trump denounced the alt-right nationalist movement saying he condemning bigotry and prejudice in all of its form. at this forum, both sides accused each other of focusing too heavily on theeg were particularly sore about the media coverage of clinton's private e-mail server with palmieri saying it will go down as quote the most grossly overrated and overcovered and most destructive story in all of presidential politics. gayle? >> nancy, thank you. the president-elect senior transition adviser kellyanne conway is on the campus of harvard where the event took place. kellyanne, good morning.
7:10 am
last night. >> good morning, gayle. it was very spirited. i think the audience learned a lot about the election from the mechanics and messaging point of view and, obviously, some of these feelings are still raw. i think most people are not prepared for donald trump to become the next president of the united states, and you had a group of professionals and later robby mook and i just really discussing what went on in the hard-fought campaign. >> we heard you were accused last night of giving a platform w do you think that perception still exists and is the campaign concerned about that? >> well, it's not a fact. it's just completely false. and that is why i asked jen palmieri, communications director for hillary clinton, if she would look me in the eye and tell me that i ran a campaign that would allow that. >> she said yes, you would. >> well, and that is unfortunate. i took that personally and i know it's not true, gayle. and, you know, president-elect trump has denounced every single element of that awful movement. he's never met these people. he doesn't ask for their
7:11 am
he denounced it on the record with the interview with the "the new york times" last week. i think some people are stuck in the permanent campaign and they ought to realize that donald trump won 306 electoral, 30 of 50 states and counties that president obama carried are america were attracted to his message and his message of growth and job creation and patriotism and better trade deals. what happened just yesterday? that's what presidents do. just yesterday president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence wednesday to indianapolis and announced carrier would keep a thousand jobs in indianapolis that were thought to go to mexico. leaders make good on their promises and keep american jobs in america.
7:12 am
are grateful they are going to still have their jobs. "wall street journal" editorial page, this morning calls trump's carrier deal arm twisting of a company. is this a sustainable strategy to boost the economy? >> but that is a false characterization. during those talks which were very genial between the carrier and ceo and president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence, they were talking about how to work together. >> has rudy giuliani been told he is no longer a contender and are you widening the search for secretary of state? >> i won't divulge private conversations that haven't been made public, but i will tell you, gayle, that decision has not been made by the president-elect. he will make that ultimate decision as to secretary of state. it's a very important decision, as are off the senior posts and senior staff appointments. a number of qualified men and women to hold that post and the president-elect and vice president-elect are gathering the counsel of a number of different people and not rushing
7:13 am
>> major garrett is reporting this morning that general mattis who will be mr. trump's choice for defense secretary supports petraeus as secretary of state. do you think that will weigh heavily with mr. trump? >> well, general petraeus was in trump tower to meet with the president-elect and they had an hour long meeting, very productive and constructive meeting. i know the president-elect was impressed with that meeting with general petraeus and for good it weighs in the decision making that folks can see they can work together whether an economic team or national security team or other advisers in the cabinet or elsewhere, norah. we know who makes the ultimate decision here and it's donald trump. but it does matter to him to take the counsel of these people, whoever he trusts to be in his cabinet. >> you suggested earlier that donald trump supporters would feel betrayed if mitt romney got the position of secretary of state. do you still feel that they feel that way, some of them?
7:14 am
just breathtaking backlash that i was seeing and hearing in private communications, on social media and elsewhere, with respect to the possible appointment of mitt romney. and look. i've been on the record as talking about that. mr. trump has said that he gave me permission to talk about that publicly. so i've been doing that. but ultimately that decision is donald trump's. i would note there are a number of people in contention for that. >> he is still being considered for the post, mitt romney? >> as we have publicly said, there are four people, as of yesterday, who are in contention for secretary of state. that list may expand, that list may narrow. i know the president-elect will make his choice public in due course. >> we will see if due course is next week. kellyanne conway, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. the death toll in the devastating wildfire in tennessee is rising. there are now 11 confirmed deaths.
7:15 am

7:16 am
morning, we knew something was off because the view outside of the cabin was really smoky and foggy and an orange color. >> reporter: at a red cross shelter notes with the names of loved ones still unaccounted for cover this message board, including members of the reed family. 9-year-old and 12-year-old kids were with their mom the night of the father. michael reed received a call from his wife that the flames were approaching their home. he hasn't heard from them since. >> to have two of our own we are heartbroken. >> these two are nurses at the school the missing girls attend. >> we are truly a family and this is hurting all of us. our teachers, our principal, our assistant principal and us. >> reporter: this has to be a tough time for you? >> tough time. >> reporter: sevier county mayor larry water says while many of the missing have been found safe, the number changes
7:17 am
deceased. >> we have got strong mountain heritage and so we are going to recover from this and we will be back stronger than ever. it's just going to take us a little time. >> reporter: there are conflicting reports in the local newspaper this morning that many homeowners like this one say they didn't even get a warning. it wasn't until they actually saw the flames that they wanted to get out. but the national park service and county officials said they did give proper warning before the wildfire began. >> it moved so quickly. carnival's princess cruises will pay a $40 million fine for dumping oily waste into the ocean and largest fine in its history. peter is here with what prompted the investigation. >> a whistle-blower discovered the elaborate worker system on princess ships three years ago and alerted investigators. the ships using a so-called
7:18 am
investigators charge the cruise line had been dumping thousands of gallons of contaminated water at least eight years. >> our open seas are not dumping grounds for waste. >> the justice department says ship engineers aboard the princess polluted the ocean and covered up their actions. >> a campaign of destruction in an effort to hide the deliberate pollution of our seas with oily waste. >> bilge water, a mixture of water, oil, and other chemicals below deck, they are required to filter it and store it until they get to port which can be expensive. the d.o.j. says princess cruises what is called a magic pipe connected to a hose to feed the dirty water into a tank that hold water from the ship's sinks and showers and in some places the cruise lines are allowed to dump that water at see. a whistle-blower turned over these pictures from inside the ship. investigators say the cruise line used illegal practices on not one but five of their ships
7:19 am
>> we are very sorry for any harm done to the environment. >> princess cruise's president jan schwartz said they are very sorry. many were fired. >> we have worked very hard to improve and strengthen our operations and learn from our mistakes. we have dramatically changed our shipboard and shore site flee ganizations and organizational structure and leadership. we have invested in millions of dollars upgrading our equipment. cruise line has been hit with big penalties for similar charges. in the late 1990s, royal caribbean paid $27 million in two separate cases and three of the ship's engineers were indicted. the plea agreement also requires all princess ships to participate in a court-supervised and environmental compliance program. $10 million of the settlement will go toward community service projects to benefit thhave bump

president barack obama and mr. trump have been talking regularly on the phone. have you heard this? they say they are talking regularly on the phone. now as i mentioned earlier this week, this is crazy. we are the only show that has gotten a hold of the audio. i can't believe it! >> hey, what is the deal with the gifts? >> what do you mean? putin wants to give me -- >> gifts from him. >> i've accepted it. my question is where do you keep them? >> donald, is that you? >> yes. i just ate my shoe. i just looked at a map of a border with mexico. it's really long! there is no way i can build a wall that long! >> that's what i've been saying. >> nicely done. i thought the president obama invitation was very good. >> very convincing. >> the border is 2,000 miles
7:42 am
more interesting to that point, they have been talking regularly. >> yes. >> really interesting. >> i love the tying the shoe remark. >> followed by heavy breathing. only on "cbs this morning," members of the rockefeller family are giving their first tv interviews about a public falling out with exxonmobil. the energy giant is one of the successors to standard oil. that company's founder was john d. rockefeller. now some of his descendents are criticizing exxonmobil's record on climate change. don dahler spoke with them about why they feel to speak out now. >> the rockefellers are the third richest family in the u.s. with a fortune of $11 billion. much of that wealth goes through philanthropy. reports that exxonmobil knew more than it led on about global warming.
7:43 am
your calls, what this is your opportunity. what would you say directly to them? >> if i was talking to the board of exxonmobil, i would say right now their company seems to be morally bankrupt. >> these fifth generation descendants of john d. rockefeller are speaking out against the company. david kaiser is the grandson of david rockefeller and valerie rockefeller wayne is the daughter of former senator jay rockefeller. >> because the source of the family wealth is fossil fuels, we feel a enormous moral responsibility for our children and everyone to move forward. >> they are doing that by looking back. the charities they run funded investigations that appeared in the "l.a. times" and inside climate news. the report suggests exxon had been at the forefront of climate change research since the late 1970s and knew the burning of fossil fuels would warm the planets and could eventually endanger humanity. even while the company downplayed the sentence in a series of newspaper ads and
7:44 am
>> this is complicated. don't believe statements that say it's clear that things are warming. it's not clear. >> exxonmobil accuses the rockefellers of conspiring against the corporation. in a phone call with cbs news, a company official described it as a coordinated campaign to vilify the company. a spokesman initially sent us a statement saying the reports were funded and then promoted by activists claiming they are not credible and have been widely discredited. the company later retracted that statement, telling us they don't have a comment. the company has taken the unusual step of publicly criticizing you and the family funds, calling you conspirators. this has gotten personal. >> well, it's really very silly. for something to count as a conspiracy, it can't just have been done in concert with other people. it also has to be illegal and we
7:45 am
>> kaiser says a large majority of the family supports their efforts, but not everyone is on board. >> you know, these family funds do not speak on behalf of all 200 family members. >> his cousin, arianna rockefeller, insists all sides should be working together on solutions for climate change. >> i don't think denouncing a family legacy is the best way to go about doing this. >> still, kaiser and wayne say it company has done to clear up the debate over what to do next. >> what we would hope from exxon is that they would admit what they have done, these decades of denial, and continue what they have started in a very small way to do now, which is to look at alternatives. and we really hope they become an industry leader. they can set the tone for the industry in doing more, but the truth has to come out. >> new york and massachusetts

8:01 am
i think the audience learned a lot about the election from the mechanics and messaging point of view and obviously some of the feelings are still raw. i think most people were not prepared for donald trump to become the next president of the united states. >> they were forced to evacuate earlier this week. >> he was a local legend, his story has a tragic ending. after mcknight was killed in a confrontation. >> the ceo of starbucks will step aside in yeah. >> going to become the ceo of the starbucks across the street. thank you. thank you. because there's a lot of them.

8:03 am
>> he also made a surprise cabinet announcement. mr. trump told the crowd he's going to nominate retired marine corps general james mattis for defense secretary. >> i asked one of the generals, i love the generals. i said to him, you're a good general, aren't you? yes, sir, i am. i said, so how do you compare to general mattis? how do you compare to mad dog? sir, he's better than i i love that. >> mattis, who retired from the military in 2013, will need a special waiver to be confirmed. federal law says the pentagon chief must be out of uniform for seven years. sunday on "face the nation," reince priebus, john dickerson will interview leon panetta, former house speaker newt gingrich and nancy pelosi all here on cbs. that's a good lineup.

8:06 am
he's going to be an unconventional president. what i like about it, in my -- like i said, almost my daily conversations is, he's just a get things done kind of guy. >> have you told him being president is not being ceo of the united states? that the congress is going to have a say? >> we have talked about that extensively. we talked about the constitution, article one of the constitution, separation of powers. he feels very strongly that under president obama's watch, he stripped a lot of power away from the constitution, awa the legislative branch of government and we want to reset the balance of power so that people in the constitution are rightfully restored. >> scott pelley is with us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm so looking forward to seeing this whole interview because, you know, one of the most interesting things i learned after this election is in the past 70 years, the republicans have controlled all three, the house, the senate and the presidency, six of those years. so rare they have all of -- they have the opportunity to legislate and change things. what is at the top of the agenda
8:07 am
get done? >> well, ryan told us that the number one bill in the new congress is going to be the repeal of obamacare, the affordable care act. but he also said that doesn't mean they're going to come up with their own plan for health care right away, they're going to repeal it, it is going to be symbolic. and then it could be months or years before there is a republican plan. i asked him in the interview. are you going to pull the rug out from under the 20 million americans who currently have coverage under the aca. he said, oh, no, going to remain in place until we come up with the plan of our own that will provide health care for everyone. >> he is also proposed a huge restructuring of medicare, some call it a small privatization of medicare. does he think they'll do that? >> i'm so glad you brought that up because i brought it up in the interview because he's an expert on the budget, he considers medicare and those entitlements to be one of the greatest threats to our country down the road, and he said, no,
8:08 am
their agenda right now, it is something he would like to get to later. but he said they're much more concerned right now about tax reform, and immigration and obamacare. >> you also interviewed mike pence. pence and ryan are close. how critical is that relationship and the connection to president trump going to be, do you think, in moving this legislation forward? >> that's so insightful because it is not at all obvious, but you're right. pennsylvania is a trusted republican. when donald trump is out in public saying things that some republicans consider to be unreasonable or outrageous, it is pence who is on capitol hill saying, now, here's what we're really going to do. so speaker ryan told me that pence has been in all of the meetings he's had with donald trump and as president of the senate, because he will be vice president of the united states, i think pence is going to be
8:09 am
>> i appreciated his candor with you, just in the little bit we saw. about winning and he said, no, i didn't see that coming. that's the thing that people say about paul ryan, he's authentic, you can believe he believes what he says and he says what he believes. you mentioned about tax reform, many people believe that their plan will benefit the rich the most. what did he say about that? >> well, he said there would be tax cuts for everyone. what they hope to do is bring all of the tax rates down. in particular the corporate tax they want to bring that down to 20% or 15%. and when i asked him about benefiting the rich most, he essentially conceded that the rich will get a tax break as well. but they want to be seen as providing most of the tax savings to the middle class. >> i'm with norah, i can't wait to see it. >> how did you get that interview, scott pelley? >> all right. thanks. >> thank you. >> you can see more of scott's interview with house speaker
