president doubling down on his pledge not to pay. saying in a televised speech, i've said time and again, mexico will not pay for the wall. also trump is speaking on his positions on intelligence techniques such as water board. >> i asked them the question, does it work, does torture work? the answer was yes, absolutely. >> reporter: the president says he will defer to his top defense and intelligence firnl who have both disavowed the illegal methods, reigniting the debate, a draft of a plan to reopen black sites closed under president obama where terror suspects were tortured. the trump administration insisting that document didn't come from them. president trump has nothing but praise for his new home, telling "the new york times," it's elegant. the president says through the

7:07 am
is president trump going to risk funding that wall to the tune of between 8 and $20 billion of the taxpayer money without the guarantee that we're going to get it back? >> president trump has been clear and consistent on this point, matt. he will build the wall. and mexico will pay for it. whether they pay for it straight-out, or it's reimbursed later on after congressional funding. let's talk about what the wall means. what executive action yesterday really signifies. it's a construction of a physical wall on our southern border. and it really, in addition to it, we're allowing more tools and resources for our law enforcement officers, and our border agents. >> but this payment issue, kellyanne, is a big issue. we're talking about billions and billions of dollars. president trump says we will be reimbursed. it might be in a complicated form. i've got time. explain the complicated form to me. >> he does have time. it's the fifth or six day on the job, matt and he's almost caught -- >> he's had a year and a half to think about this and explain it.
7:08 am
>> he has. he has many times. and the voters responded and elected him. we welcome the mexican officials here next week. we know it will be a productive but far-reaching conversation. and we know that americans are tired of people and drugs spilling over the borders into our communities. that's what this is about. it's about being a sovereign nation. the united states of america spends billions protecting other countries' borders. it's high time we spend some money protecting our own. >> you say he's explained it. as late of yesterday in the interview, he says it will be in a complicated form. he didn't specifically lay it out. i'm asking you, can you do that? >> yes, i can. and he will. and he wants to give the deference to his meeting with the mexican president and other mexican officials before he announces that. we welcome them to washington. it's hardly breaking news to talk about the complications of funding new projects. that's what that is. yesterday was important for many reasons. he made good on a centerpiece of his campaign that helped him in
7:09 am
the primaries and indeed the election. he's going to take the money away from sanctuary cities. because kate steinle ought to be a household national name. she was murdered by an illegal that was deported five times. who had a criminal record. why he was harbored in a north pole -- nancy pelosi's san francisco, a sanctuary city. >> the president said he heard from people that torture works. his secretary says he is against it. his newly minted cia director said in his confirmation hearing, he will not restart the enhanced interrogation program. and he can't imagine he will be asked to do that by the president. will you guarantee me that the president will defer to those two gentlemen and not go back to that chapter in our history? >> what he said as recently as yesterday, as these gentlemen get confirmed in their posts. he will consult with and perhaps defer to his cia director and his secretary of defense. obviously, there's a split of
7:10 am
opinion within the community because president trump also told abc news' david muir, he has talked to other people in the community, that believe it does work. obviously, he will be meeting -- he will do what leaders do. and any new presidents and commanders of chief do, matt. he will meet with his own national security and defense team. and make a judgment. >> let me end on this question of this investigation into alleged voter fraud. 3 million to 5 million people, president trump says voted illegally in the last election, costing him the popular vote. it seems like an ego issue to him. can i ask you this, kellyanne? would you put your credibility on the line with that claim? would you agree with that claim? >> i hardly think it's an ego issue. one person, one vote, is a hallmark of our democracy. even your own pete alexander admitted that the registration rolls are a hot mess. >> that's not voter fraud. >> that's what the president is talking about. he's talking about registration
7:11 am
and rolls and why not have an investigation. what is everybody afraid of? he said he put his evidence on the -- he would like to put his evidence on the line, have an investigation. and i just want to correct a part of your reporting. i talked last night with tiffany trump. and she said it is flatly false that she is registered in two states. and i recall talking with tiffany through the fall when she was making sure she could reregister in new york to vote for her father. she had been registered in pennsylvania and went through the process. said it was very byzantine. and took a long time. but she said she is not registered in two states. >> what about steven bannon. is he registered in two states? >> i haven't discussed that. but i can guarantee he didn't vote in two states. doesn't it prove the point that people that follow the law, they haven't been purged from the rolls where they clearly have said take me off the rolls? >> no. it proves the point that you can be registered in two states and not vote illegally in two states and sway an election? >> there's no evidence of that. i mean, matt -- what is everybody afraid of? >> he claimed that these people voted illegally. >> he's claiming that people do vote illegally.
7:12 am
he is claiming there are dead people on the rolls. people here illegally and should not be on the rolls. i would ask -- everybody, including your network, was so excited to cover jill stein's recount, which was completely bogus, and a sock to the taxpayers. when she wanted a recount in wisconsin and michigan, everybody thought it was a good idea. why was she recounting? she said there was fraud at the ballot. what was her claim? what was her basis? >> at that time, didn't the president come out and say there is no evidence of fraud and that recount was unwarranted? >> and that's what the judges thought. it was a big embarrassment. but jill stein, miss woman of the people, ended up pocketing a lot of money for future political endeavors. i think everybody is cherry picking, to call this an ego trip for the president of the united states, when he is the leader of our democracy, and he wants to make make sure that the undergirding hallmarks of our democracy, one person, one vote, i appreciate he's doing it without a campaign on the horizon. that's when things should be managed. >> we'll look into what you just said about tiffany, to make sure we have our facts straight,

8:24 am
it seems to have changed significantly. or would you disagree with that? >> if you talk about hollywood, the studio system. i don't think it's changed. if anything, i think it's even more difficult. i think where it's changed is in the world of television, in the world of cable, in the world of all these, you know, wonderful miniseries and series where you have all -- a lot of the top writers are now going into that arena. also, in independent film. >> in terms of actresses in hollywood? >> studio movies? >> you think there's an expiration date? >> i do. i would love to be proven wrong. >> do you have a good choice of roles? >> i mean, i do, because i do -- i do anything that the script, even if you don't get -- if you are paid for scale. yep. i mean, in the last couple of years, i've done about five or six independent films. >> just because you love the work? >> i love the work. and i like the script. and i like the character.
