♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's wednesday, january 25th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including hollywood's powerful black list. it started as a group of screen plays waiting to be made into movies. see how it led to 21 oscar nominations just this year. but first here is today's eye opener at 8:00. president trump will begin moving to pursue his agenda on tighter border security with a trip to the department of homeland security. >> democrats are calling the comments delusional. republicans don't understand why he's disputing an election he won. >> a victory for the supporter of two pipelines of a year's
8:01 am
long effort. >> his nominee any less conservative than justice scalia, he will actually have moved the court to the left. >> elected officials, but this morning one agent is facing an internal investigation for her comments that have now come to light. winter storm warnings and weather advisories are in effect from south dakota to wisconsin. national weather service estimates 10 to 14" could fall in some of the hardest-hit areas. attack. to the basket. he missed the layup. it's no good. they've done it, they have done it! regular season win in marquette history. no one is going to argue this is when you should rush the court. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president trump is expected to sign executive actions today to enable construction of a wall on
8:02 am
the mexican border. congress first authorized construction of a physical bordbore barrier on the southern border in 2006. >> the president promised as a candidate that mexico will pay for this wall. the mexican president will visit with mr. trump next week. >> later this week, the white house is still working on the methods and timing. major garret has covered this since the campaign. in order to build a wall you need congress to actually approve legislation and funding. >> right. >> so what's the meaning? >> exactly. when you talk about presidential action, it is most powerful, most important and most long lasting when it's done in cooperation and concert with the united states congress and becomes a law. executive orders can have wide-ranging impacts. so can executive memoranda. we've seen a little bit of both
8:03 am
from this administration so far this week. but an executive memoranda actually is more like a request to the federal bureaucracy to do something, like a memo you might get from your boss, that policy manual you're handed when you walk in the door the first day of your job. think of it that way. to work with congress and sign a law. remember on his first week in office, president obama signed an executive order to close the guantanamo bay detention facility. it's still open. why? because congress never agreed. >> good point. >> major, suppose congress does fund building of some kind of wall at some huge number whether it's $14 billion, whatever it is. what is the trump strategy tore g -- for getting mexico to pay for it? >> absolutely unknown. it could be some tax along the border, something from assets taken from somebody who has captured drug king pin or something, other assets. nobody knows. anything is open. all the president has said is he
8:04 am
will try to negotiate this. the mexican government has made it clear it's not going to provide any of its funds to pay for a wall but asset seizure from a drug kingpin, like el chapo, that's one idea i've heard in a grand, speculative way, in what may be a potential funding mechanism for at least part of the wall. >> major, the meeting between the two of them next week should be very interesting. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. the president met with executives from the auto industry yesterday. he told them his administration will reduce taxes and unnecessary regulations to encourage more companies to build more factories and hire more workers here at home. >> i think it will go down as one of the most countries and right now it's not. they don't want to get their environmental permit over something nobody ever heard of before. and it's absolutely crazy. and i am, to a large extent, an environmentalist.
8:05 am
i believe in it. but it's out of control. and we're going to make a very short process and we're going to either give you your permits or we're not going to give you your permits but you're going to know very quickly and, generally speaking, we're going to be giving you permits. so we're going to be very friendly. >> yesterday the president gave conditional approval to resume work on two pipelines that the obama administration had blocked. the keystone pipeline stretches from canada to nebraska and the dakota pipeline goes from north dakota to illinois, running through sacred tribal land. environmentalists oppose both pipelines. >> chief content officer for "time." good morning. >> good to be here. >> how has business reacted to the trump administration so far? >> i think pretty positively, actually. the first republican candidate for president that didn't have the support of fortune 500. >> did not? >> he did not have it. our surveys of fortune 500 ceos
8:06 am
showed maybe -- >> because of issues like trade? >> that was a big one, and imfwrags also. remember, a lot of these companies believe immigration of high-skilled employees is good for the economy. they didn't support him going in. what they've seen afterwards is the possibility that you could have some significant tax relief, possibly bring home some of those earnings. american companies have something like $2 trillion locked overseas that they won't bring home because the tax rate on bringing that home is 35%. if trump lowers that, you have a big opportunity to bring money back. it's worth huge amounts. >> president obama had a corporate tax reduction plan. it sat there for a while. >> he couldn't make it happen. what's changed is that president trump has a republican majority in congress that wants to do the same thing. so all of a sudden, business sees the best environment in washington for some of these things they've been pushing for that they've had in over a
8:07 am
decade. >> speaking to their concerns when he talks about regulation, reexamination of regulations to make permitting faster. >> he is using the bully pulpit to create a national industrial policy. never had one before. >> he's also threatening them, too. >> correct. >> are they afraid? >> oh, yeah. >> are they afraid of him? >> i mean, they're afraid and -- he has a big carrot and a big stick. the stick is the threat of tariffs. it surprise immediate to learn this. the president of the united states does have some ability to unilaterally boost tariffs on single companies. it would be astonishing if he did it, but that's what he's threatening to do. on the other side they look at their balance sheets and say if we can repatriate some of this money, they're willing to play his game. >> it was reported the other day, alan, that mark fields, ceo
8:08 am
of ford, reread donald trump's "art of the deal" in preparation for meeting. how have you heard that ceos are preparing to meet with him, knowing if he's upset that he will say negative things about you or your company. >> what they universally say is that he sounds much more reasonable in private than he tends to in his twitter stream and public comments and state of the union address. so that's part of what has made them optimistic. their one-on-one conversations with him aren't quite as -- >> what doesn't make them optimistic is a trade war with china. china said the idea of changing one china policy is not negotiable. >> that's the big uncertainty hanging overall of this. right now, the ceos i talked to are downplaying the trade threat and focusing on the possibility of reduced regulation and tax relief. you don't really know how this will play off. >> new game in town.
8:09 am
>> and predictions are not the way to go for any of us in the media. >> when you say people say he's very different in private than he he is in public? >> much more reasonable in private. >> that's very comforting. >> then you hear something like the america first inauguration address and wonder where this is really going. >> alan, good to see you. >> good to be here. thanks for having me. >> more and more mothers are finding buds in the marijuana industry. >> these marijuana plants are much taller than ones in the other room. what are these? >> these are actually the super mother. >> super mother? >> yes. >> kind of like you. >> oh, wow, thank you. >> ahead the so-called pot moms tell chip reed about their passions,,,,
