7:02 am
presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, a federal judge in maryland is the second to block president trump's new version of its controversial travel ban. a judge in hawaii yesterday issued a nationwide temporary restraining order. that ruling came hours before theory viezed executive order was to take effect. >> the ban would stop visas to travelers to six muslim majority countries for 90 days. jan crawford is in washington with the newest setback for the president and his harsh words for the judge. jan, good morning. >> good morning. the new ruling came just over a month after courts blocked the administration's original order. the federal judge who blocked the latest said it was unconstitutional religious discrimination. last night president trump made clear he isn't backing down. >> this is in the opinion of
7:03 am
many an unprecedented judicial overreach. >> reporter: a campaign-style rally in nashville, the president pulled no punches in attacking the judges' decisions. >> this ruling makes us look weak. you don't think this was done for political reasons? no. >> reporter: even suggesting the white house reexamine its original travel ban. >> i think we ought to go back to the first one and go all the way which is what i wanted to do in the first place. >> reporter: that first executive order sparked protests at airports across the nation. some called it a muslim ban. the ninth circuit court of appeals blocked it. the trump administration then revised the order, removing iraq from the list of restricted countries, exempting visa holders and eliminating language prioritizing christian immigrants. >> the muslim ban is something that in some form has morphed into an extreme vetting. >> reporter: the hawaii federal judge appointed by president
7:04 am
obama blocked the revised ban. white house stephen miller's assessment last month of the new revision. >> fundamentally you're still going to have the same basic policy outcome for the country. >> and rudy giuliani's january comments on fox news. >> when he first announced it, he said muslim ban. he called me up and said put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally. >> reporter: in his ruling watson wrote, these plainly worded statements betray the executive order's stated secular purpose. the judge completely discounted the reason the white house gave for this temporary ban, those six countries are in the grip of terrorist activity. that is highly unusual. typically courts give president great deference on matters of national security. so this could suggest because of past comments, courts are going to hold president trump to a different standard. gayle? >> jan, thank you very much. the president answered questions for the first time last night
7:05 am
about his wiretapping claims. in an interview mr. trump promised proof in the near future to back up his tweets from two weeks ago. he said then that he just found out that obama had my wires tapped in trump tower just before the election victory. but a key republican congressman, devin nunes now says the president's claims just are not true. lawmakers hope fbi director james comey can put the issue to rest at a hearing next week. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the president's increasingly lonely fight. >> reporter: good morning. devin nunes is the chair of the house intelligence committee, a republican. after multiple conversations with national security officials he says the president is simply incorrect, that he was not spied on by his predecessor. mr. trump won't let it go. >> every intelligence agency reports to you. why not immediately go to them and gather evidence to support that sf. >> because i don't want to do anything that's going to violate
7:06 am
any strength of an agency. we have enough problems. >> reporter: in an interview president trump stuck to his story that he was wiretapped or something like it. >> wiretap covers a lot of different things. i think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks. >> reporter: democrats said the stalling tactics were nothing new for a president who has a history of making claims he can't back up. >> have you seen any evidence to confirm your fears about mexico sending criminalless across the border. >> we'll show you evidence. >> reporter: the fwiter accusation that president obama tapped his phones has gripped congress and the intelligence community. if true, it would be a bombshell. republican devin nunes says it isn't. >> we don't have any evidence that that took place. in fact, i don't believe in the last week of time, the people we talked to, i don't think there was an actual tap of trump tower. >> reporter: democratic
7:07 am
counterpart adam schiff says trump's tweets have forced the white house to defend an untruth for two weeks. >> the reality is i don't think they have the foggiest idea what was behind the president's claim except maybe something he watched on tv. >> reporter: the controversy put fbi director james comey in high demand on capitol hill where he briefed two top senators behind closed doors yesterday. >> this briefing was all on sensitive matters and highly classified. >> reporter: republican lindsey graham says the fbi should share some of its information with the public. >> the bottom line is a lot of americans are wondering what's going on here. >> reporter: cbs news asked comey's boss, attorney general jeff sessions, whether he ever gave the president any reason to believe he was wiretapped. norah, after some hesitation, he said no. >> nancy, thanks. president trump released the first draft budget of his administration this morning. it proposes massive cuts, 31% less for the environmental protection agency and nearly 29% reduction to the state
7:08 am
department. defense and homeland security could see more money. senate republicans have already said the state department reductions are a no go. nick mulvaney is the white house budget director and joins us. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> you said this budget reflects the president's campaign does it also reflect his desire to dismantle the administrative state. >> a little bit but that's not how we came and it. he went through the interviews and talked with him directly and finding out what his priorities were, we took those words and turned them into numbers. >> did you consult with anybody? >> the president. >> you didn't discuss with agencies -- >> sure. during the process we talked to all the cabinet secretary, all the other directors and walked through program by program -- we gave them a lot of flexibility. we'll continue to do so over how these cuts in many of the agencies get implemented or in the case of the defense department, home lant security, how the increases are being
7:09 am
implemented. we set the budget and it's up to the agencies themselves to make the final decisions. >> people say if you want to know the priorities of somebody, look at their budget, period. whether it's family or whether it's the government. the question becomes, it's also a political decision. we can talk about all the numbers in the world. but you've got republican senators saying it's dead on arrival. you've got mitch mcconnell saying they can never get those kind of cuts in the state department. you've got the secretary of defense saying, if you cut down the state department budget, it's not going to help me do what i have to do. >> sure. a couple different answers to that. certainly every politician is going to have different priorities. certain members of congress, like i used to be, represent districts. senators represent a whole state. the president represents everybody so his budget is driven by that. regarding the state department, we're absolutely confident there's more than enough money in the budget to allow the state department to maintain their core diplomatic functions. keep in mind a lot of the farn
7:10 am
aid is in the state department budget. a lot of the money for climate research, climate change work is in the state department budget. that's one of the reasons you see such a large reduction there. to the larger point about diplomacy and defense department, this is a hard power budget. no question about it. what the president wanted. >> back to charlie's point, stiff opposition from key republican players. what do you intend to do, mr. mulvaney, to get them to see what you see? >> send a message, what this is really about. what is the message to congress in this budget? the president wants more money for defense, more money for border enforcement. more money for law enforcement generally. we increased that part of the department of justice. he wants more money for veterans and for things like school choice. he wants to do that without adding to the deficit this year. that's the message that we want to send to congress. >> president trump also said on the campaign trail he wants to eliminate all disease. yet in this budget you eliminate 20% of the budget for the nih,
7:11 am
$6 billion. how does that square with his campaign promise? >> there was a wonderful moment during his add doctor es to congress where he had the woman who suffered from a very rare disease, what we call orphan diseases, diseases not that many people have, but for government funding there wouldn't be a demand in the private sector for research. >> what ability infrastructure spending, he promised a trillion dollars. there's no money in here for that. >> we moved a lot of the infrastructure spending out of the budget in anticipation of putting it into a larger infrastructure plan hopefully in the summertime. it is not a reflection of a lack of commitment to infrastructure, but a message that we think there's a better way to do it and that will be the plan we unveil this summer. >> nick mulvaney, thank you. the white house is working to get more republican support for a plan to replace obamacare. trz's campaign-style rally in
7:12 am
nashville yesterday tried to build momentum for his health care proposal. conservative lawmakers. house speaker paul ryan admits the bill needs changes in order to pass. margaret brennan is at the white house with the next move in the health care fight. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president went to nashville to use the full weight of his bully pulpit to sell this republican health care plan, but now even its authors are signaling retreat and say it may need to be altered in order to pass. >> we are going to repeal and replace horrible, disastrous obamacare. >> reporter: president trump spent more time attacking obamacare than promoting the house republican plan to replace it. >> at the very core of obamacare was the fatal flaw. the government forcing people to buy a government-approved product. there are very few people, very few people --
7:13 am
>> reporter: the house bill supported by the president and being shepherded by speaker paul ryan is facing opposition from other conservatives, in part because it'sed as too similar to balk. >> we want them to give us what they promised us. >> reporter: on capitol hill the conservative grassroots fight to kill the bill raged on. senate republican rand paul of kentucky said it was time to send a clear message. >> tell them you want them to stand firm. you want to bring down the paul ryan plan -- >> reporter: late wednesday north carolina republican mark meadows said he had enough no votes to sink it. >> i can tell you based on our whip count this evening, there's not enough votes to support this current measure in its current form. >> reporter: yet vice president mike pence spent a second day twisting the arms of house lawmakers, including speaker ryan, to make changes to the
7:14 am
bill to win over skeptics and ensure its passage. >> we can incorporate feedback to improve and refine the bill. those conversations are occurring between the white house, the house, the senate and our members. >> reporter: concessions that might win over some of the republicans still on the fence include changes to medicaid and an early freeze on its expansion. >> margaret, thank you. this morning kremlin officials deny russian intelligence was involved in the hacking of a half billion yahoo! accounts. four people were charged yesterday including two russian security officers. the russians are accused of directing two hackers. the justice department claims they use stolen user names and passwords to access the accounts of russian journalists and u.s. and government officials. secretary of state rex tillerson is in japan on his first visit as diplomat. part of a three-nation tour of

7:16 am
is. but any strategy will need china, the only country with real leverage over kim jong-un. >> secretary, how will you get china on the same page as the u.s. to defuse the threat from north korea? >> we believe they have a very important role to play. china is a major source of economic trade and activity with north korea. so we look to china to fulfill its obligations and fully implement the sanctions called for in the u.n. resolutions. >> reporter: tomorrow tillerson travels to south korea which is in political turmoil after its president was impeached last week over a corruption scandal. the u.s. is currently deploying a controversial missile interception system there which could be halted by the next leaderment china objects to that over claims that the radar could peer into china. >> north korea and its people need not fear the united states or their neighbors in the region
7:17 am
who seeks only to live in peace with north korea. >> reporter: china suggested north korea halt the missile program in exchange for the u.s. and south korea stopping its joint military exercises. the u.s. rejected that idea. despite these diplomatic challenges, the secretary defended the white house's proposed 29% budget cut to the state department. iraqi forces this morning have surrounded western mosul. military leaders say it's only a matter of time until they crush the last isis fighters there. those that remain are using hundreds of thousands of civilians as human shields. iraqi authorities say more than 150,000 people have fled mosul since the offensive to retake the city began nearly a month ago. a sophisticated russian spy ship reappeared near the east coast and is now heading north. this video shows the ship on patrol before it reached waters off the u.s. the 300-foot troller has a port

8:00 am
scheduled press conference for a five-day trip laying out a call for a strategy on north korea. >> the snowfall was no joke here, 31 inches, maybe some change. getting to the larger population areas like new york city, the storm was not what people were expecting because it's not what they were told, and that's led many people to ask, so what happens with the weather forecasts? >> winter storm stella's not as bad as everyone thought it would be. this was supposed to be a huge storm, but then rachel maddow talked about it on msnbc for an hour and turn out to be nothing. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and nora o'donald. a second federal judge in maryland blocked part of the revised travel ban. that ruling this morning comes hours after a judge in hawaii put the executive order on hold. the president's latest ban would stop new visas from sex muslim

countries for 90 days. iraq was removed from the list. it eliminated language giving preference to christian immigrants. >> the president has said the ban is necessary to include vetting from countries identified by the obama administration. he slammed the hawaii federal judge's decision last night. >> the order he blocked was a watered down verse of the first order. let's go back to the first one and go all the way, which is what i wanted to do in the first place. the danger is clear. the law is clear. the need for my executive order is clear. >> the judge said a reasonable observive found the order was issued with a purpose to disfavor a particular religion in spite of its stated religiously neutral purpose. they called the ruling flawed in reasoning and scope. >> the president is responding
8:02 am
to questions about his wiret wiretapping claims for the first time. in an interview yesterday, he promised proof in the near future to back up his tweets from two weeks ago. he claimed them president obama ordered wiretaps of trump tower during the campaign. the republican and democratic leaders of the house and intelligence committee vouch for evidence they've not seen proof of that. >> the white house chief of staff for president obama, the role called the most second powerful job in washington. he joined the administration in 2007, took part as policy adviser, deputy national security adviser in 2010, and chief of staff in 2013. he's now a senior principle at the foundation focusing on training american workers for new jobs in the digital economy. he's here for the first television interview since leaving the white house. >> nice to see you back here. >> thank you so much. let me just ask you, do you have
8:03 am
any idea speculate for us, what president rump is talking about when he says, i have evidence? he seems to be almost sometimes doubling down, sometimes pulling back. what could he be thinking about? >> i simply don't have any idea. the president says -- former president obama said the claim he ordered a wiretap, the spokesman said that's completely false, and we had a cardinal rule, charlie, when the white house -- we would not under any circumstances get involved in any investigation one way or the other. i don't know what he's referring to. appears the republicans and democrats on capitol hill, people like zregter of national intelligence, jim clapper, and others have no idea what he's talking about either. >> some republicans said they saw no evidence. >> the chairman of the house intelligence committee is a republican, and he called himself an ally of president trump, and he said yesterday that he does not believe that this happened. >> what do you think of the claim, when you first heard it,
8:04 am
calling president obama a bad, sick guy. >> yeah. >> well, i think you saw the strength of the statement that the president spokesman put out. >> i know. i'm asking you. i'm asking you. you were there. you know this man. you know what went on in the white house. >> i know what went on in the white house, stand by the work we did, including work that led to eight years of a foreign terrorist organization not carrying out a terrorist attack on this -- in this country. we take great pride on that, relied on the intelligence professionals and military and defense officials to make that happen. greatly proud of that. we should be focused on precisely that rather than speculating about these other charges. >> so, dennis, there are multiple tweets by donald trump where he said president obama has tap ped my phones. can the president order a
8:05 am
wiretap? >> president cannot order a wiretap. a president does not order a wiretap. the president did not order a wiretap. >> there's going to be a public hearing about russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election on monday. what are questions you want answered on the sujbject? >> i want to make sure we're taking the next step now. we -- president obama tapped the intelligence committee, assessment of precisely what happened in the election. he was a victim himself of hacking in the 2008 campaign, so, clearly, it's a new age of these hacks being an issue in our campaigns. what i'd like to see is congress beginning now to implement policies to ensure this does not happen again. but unfortunately, there has to be accounting in terms of what happened. i still see a little bit too much questioning of whether the russians, in fact, did involve themselves in the election. that's an open and shut
8:06 am
question. >> you think it's clear russia was meddling? >> no question about it. >> no question about it. >> why do you think the president is denying it? >> trump. >> i'm not characterizing why he is, and at other times, he's acknowledged -- >> among others, he says. >> yeah. he's acknowledged the russian rule, but, again, the important thing about acknowledging it is that allows us to take the next step to protect the elections so it does not happen again. that's what the american people should expect. weir the united states of america, that should not happen again. >> the efforts to dismantle obamacare is not going as smoothly as predicted before getting into the white house. did you sit and watch this unfold? what's your thoughts? >> you know, jones was the first national security adviser. if you want it bad, you get it bad. they got it bad. they had a plan here that will push 24 million people out of health care, back into the kind of confused and, you know,
8:07 am
insecure state where they don't have the peace of mind that comes from having health insurance and having kids have health insurance. that's a big mistake. so what i hope is that they go back to square one now and try to address what are fixable problems in the existing program, not throw the baby out with the bath. >> there are problems with it. >> president obama's admitted there's problems. in fact, wrote a complete article in the journal of -- one of the medical journals pllayin out precisely steps he'd take to strengthen the law. we should do that. >> what would you do for the individual mandates? >> individual mandates are a harder question, 118 million people in the country with what are called preexisting conditions. under the old system, insurance companies could say, if you're one of the 118 million people, we're not going to cover you. the preexisting conditions, charlie, cover the range of questions, so in order for us to say to insurance companies, you have to cover everybody, you
8:08 am
can't say to those 118 million people, you don't get coverage, everybody else -- >> the only way to do individual mandate -- >> work very hard at this, and policymake policymakers, republicans, democrats, nonpartisans have looked at it, and it goes to the heart of the cbo score this week. they found because of many of these changes including the unfair tax changes that give a big tax break to the most wealthy americans and because they pulled back into mandates, 24 million people will lose their insurance. if you want it bad, you got it bad. they got it bad. >> doing what you're doing now, do you miss the day-to-day, you know, the job you had was a key political job to have. do you miss the day-to-day of that? >> well, i don't. i love seeing my wife and kids every day. what i do miss is i miss my friends and my colleagues in the white house. that was a team. that was a fun to be a part of. i miss that. >> and now your work at the
8:09 am
foundation training people for new digital economy, right? >> look, we all experienced this, right? we have friends, seen what's happening in the economy. when i started this in the white house eight years ago, we did not see and did not experience the kind of technological change we've seen, and we see now that we have to make sure our workers are trained for jobs in the age of automation, age of artificial intelligence. this foundation is doing that. i'm pleased to be working with them to ensure that this 68% of the work force that does not have a college degree has this skill needed to succeed. >> we know how to do that? >> they have ideas. the governor of colorado with whom we've been working has ideas, and it involves making sure that people get access to a job training coach and good job training to get the job they need. >> have you spoke to the president recently? the former president. >> president obama. >> i have not spoke, no.
8:10 am
>> quick question to you, filled out the bracket, and as i understand it, he predicts duke? >> no, unc. >> oh. oh, i'm so disappointed. >> every march, he -- >> that's why i asked. >> he -- >> reggie. >> what grade do you give reince? >> i'm not grading my successor. as you all said, it's a tough job. >> yeah. >> and, you know, he's a good man. i hope that he's just, you know, doing what a chief of staff needs to do, give it straight to the president and protect the team. make sure the team gets a shot at the difficult questions. you know, i hope he's doing that. >> all right. well, hope you will come back. nice to talk to you. >> great to see you guys, thank you so much. >> thank you. it's never too early for women to take control of their health. our doctor is in the green room with important medical tests every woman,,,,

for me. this is for the real organizers all over the country, the activists, civil rights attorneys, struggling parents, families, teachers, students, realize that a system bittet to divide, impoverished can destroy us. >> he's now bringing his voice to the new documentary called the obama years, the power of words. it focuses on obama's most important speefrps before and during his eight years in the white house. >> six speeches might shape his legacy from a brash young state senator. >> there is not a liberal america and a conservative america. there is the united states of america. >> to a president grappling with turbulent time. >> justice growses out of recognition of ourselves in each other. my liberty depends on you being free too. >> jesse williams joins us now
8:44 am
to talk about documentary and other things going on in your lieu. welcome, jesse. >> thank you so much for having me. >> this documentary, i enjoy it so much because you take us behind the scenes of all the key speeches, what the speech writers were thinking and obama was thinking. in eight years he wrote 35 speeches. he knows that words are powerful. he values them and he knew how to match the moment. >> i think that proved to be very true and that's one of the reasons he impacted so many of us. >> what was the essence of the process? >> writing these speeches? >> yeah. >> it has to be born out of an authentic not only interest and passion for the material, but information. you have to have some wisdom and experience and, you know, intellect matters despite popular opinion these days. you have to have some intellectual heft around these issues or be surrounded by people who do to be both interested and informed on a
8:45 am
topic. >> it's interesting. he clearly has a gift as people said as his order in chief. his writing was a way to move people. he tried in a way to make people to understand. >> a teaching element. >> yes, a teaching element. >> yeah. and anybody to some degree can recite words, right? but there's a connectivity to being able to really understand who and what you're talking about and being able to frame it in a way that's relatable that people can use key words and vocabulary that relax people, disarm people, and set a table for them to speeches of his presidency. what did you take from that speech? >> that was surrounded by such an -- it was the 50s anniversary. it couldn't be laid up any -- in a stronger way. so i think that the atmosphere
8:46 am
was just so -- just so palpable. there was a bit of both tension and nostalgia, both good and bad. i think he just -- what i appreciated was he stepped up to the plate. it was never -- as happens so often with him, he takes a moment and makes it notten him but makes it about you, wrifr you are. >> he does occasionally makes it about himself. one of the speeches i thought he wrote himself he was more authentic than any. >> the race speech. >> which is really a reaction to half of a nation making it about him, saying, you know what? if we're going to talk about u, let's talk about it. if you really want to talk about, let's talk about it. >> it was called the most critical speech because of critical time. >> that could have gone very badly. it was a rif yk endeavor and it came out very well, i think. >> they say his moment was 204.
8:47 am
but jesse williams, you had a moment at the b.e.t. award. for people who didn't know you, they thought, who is this guy. was it it important to speak out at that time when you did about that topic in particular? >> that question is one i'm not always sure to answer because i didn't have a choice. it wasn't something i wrestled with. i tell the truth as far as i know it at the time. i'm a student more than anything. i'm constantly learning. but i was there -- you know, i was there for a humanitarian award. i'm there for work i'm doing with incredible people around the country. so it was appropriate to discuss how i came to be on the stage at this moment. to seize the time, to seize the opportunity at that moment. my brand of communication is to call things like i see them and not allow ourselves to constantly have to be tugged to the right and create these false equivalencies and false middle on topics where we're not being

honest about it. >> we'll say tonight's a big night. you're in every single scene tonight. >> yes. thank you very much. it's a very cool opportunity tonight. we have our own thing. "the obama years: power,,,,,
