7:11 am
holds a stake in. this is perfectly normal in show base and presidents have made outside income before, usually from book royalties, president obama reported $5.1 million in book sales his first year in office. charlie, that amount fell to $56,000 last year. >> thanks, major. cbs news political director and face the nation moderator john dickerson is with us. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's talk about tweeting. >> let's talk about tweeting. >> a method of criticizing the wealth of his cabinet and how trump responds. >> well, i think he -- i mean, donald trump's argument is these people have been successful in private enterprise and they will be really successful in government. the request he is a couple things. one, what does success mean to donald trump, if your job is to bring in and dismantle a department that's a different level of success than we would have seen in the past. the second thing is do they have a public service instinct. that's different than in private enterprise. you care about the public good you're not just caring about the bottom line. the other thing is what truman
7:12 am
said about eisenhower which is when you come in and you are a general and you are used to issuing orders sometimes the bureaucracy says -- just doesn't listen. so if you're used to being in private enterprise where people do exactly what you say what's it going to be like when you come into government. >> president obama and his administration and his labor secretary put in a lot of what they call worker protections. if you install someone like who he's nominating for the labor secretary what kinds of things on a practical effect might a worker experience? >> well, mr. puzder -- there are two things, one that work -- enforcement of worker protections, enforcement of all the existing regulations that are there, then there would be removing what they would see as burdensome on business. so everything from paperwork to -- i mean, a lot of it is osha, a lot is workplace safety stuff. the other thing is being on the lookout for new things. i'm arguing now from sort of the obama case. as a labor secretary would be on the lookout for new and possible
7:13 am
abuses of two,ers that if the interests are not aligned the way they would be in the obama administration you wouldn't have that kind of always searching the landscape for ways to protect workers. now what they would say on the trump side is this he would be on the lookout for ways to make it easier for businesses to work in an unfettered way which creates greater profits that then go back to the workers. >> he's scheduled to have his first news conference next week where he's going to play out his plans, what he's going to do with his company. what's at stake for him at this event next week. >> i guess -- >> is there anything at stake for him next week? >> we're kind of learning still what it means for things to be at stake for donald trump. in other words, in the old days we would have said, well, he wants to show that he's presidential, he wants to show that he can get through a press conference, but donald trump is redesigning this job and so he will do you could imagine what he has tried to do all throughout the campaign which was take an old form, a press conference and use it in his own way. remember when he told his press kmpss essentially into pr events for his hotel. you can imagine he will try to
