7:13 am
republican claims. on twitter, president trump dismissed the democratic memo as, quote, total political and legal bust.

"i was hit by shrapnel all over," this man said. "and my 9-year-old son was killed." the 30-day cease-fire did not specify a start time. apparently the result of lobbying by syria's ally russia.
7:15 am
it's estimated more than 500 people, including at least 130 children, have been killed since this latest assault began last week. pictures released over the weekend by syrian activists show patients, including children, apparently suffering from symptoms consistent with a chlorine attack. the 16 patients were being treated by the syrian-american medical society, operating inside the rebel-held damascus suburb. the syrian government has always denied using chemical weapons and their russian allies have accused rebels of planning to use toxic materials to later blame the government. eastern ghouta has been described as hell on earth. it is estimated around 400,000 people are surrounded there by government forces. and this cease-fire is designed to allow for much needed humanitarian aid to be delivered and for medical evacuations, norah. >> seth doane in lebanon, thank you.

7:19 am
allowed its presidents to serve two five-year terms is to avoid having another all-powerful chairman mao-type figure. you have people already calling xi emperor for life. this move will allow him to quash any remaining opposition. >> interesting to see how that turns out, thank you very much, ben tracy, reporting from seoul. more than a quarter million students are affected by an unprecedented strike by public school teachers in west virginia. ahead, how the teachers are using comparisons with other states to p good morning, everybody, this is what drivers are dealing with. slick roads out there, windy conditions as well. yes, this morning's storm has arrived and it will last through the next couple of hours. by noon, though, we may see a break in the clouds, but then, a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon, even hail possible, and look at the snow totals expected anywhere from 12 to 16 inches of fresh snow for the

8:01 am
more flooding. >> this is what an ef-2 tornado did with winds of 125 miles an hour. most of the roof is gone, the window was blown out alongside the living room. >> sources tell our miami station as coral springs police officers responded to the shootings they found multiple broward county sheriff deputies waiting outside the school. >> rick scott, florida,'s republican governor, has been working with the legislature in florida on school safety. he and the president, though, don't always agree on future gun control. north korea angry about new sanctions said it won't talk to the u.s. for 100 or 200 years. well hat bole now seems to be history. >> thomas with a putt for victory. >> the honda classic wrapped up with justin thomas taking the honda classic. >> here comes his dad mike.

>> i'm john dickerson with norah o'donnell and gayle king more than a dozen states in the south and midwest are experiencing flooding after a weekend of deadly storms and record-setting rain. a massive storm is blamed for at least four deaths across the central u.s. the ohio river crested in cincinnati at more than 60 feet yesterday. well above flood stage. >> the same river spilled over its banks in downtown louisville. kentucky's governor has declared a statewide emergency. at least a dozen tornadoes touched down in tennessee, kentucky, arkansas, and missouri on saturday night. they left behind damaged cars, blown out windows, downed trees and miles of debris. >> dozens of florida lawmakers say the broward county sheriff should be suspended in the wake of the shooting at marjory stoneman douglas high school. scott israel touted his amazing leadership and said he will not resign over his department's response to the valentine's day's attack. in a letter 74 state
8:03 am
representatives asked florida governor rick scott to remove israel for, quote, incompetence and neglect of duty. the sheriff's deputy assigned to the school resigned last week after he was suspended for not entering the building. the sheriff's office faces backlash for mishandling 20 tips related to suspect cruz. detectives have asked for video from more than 70 cameras in and around the school. they want to use the video and the photos of the area to learn more about exactly what happened that day. thousands of students and patients went to stoneman douglas high for the first time since the shooting. they're not scheduled to go back to class until wednesday. people marched on the sidewalk and dropped off flowers at a memorial to honor the 17 killed. omar villafranca is at the school and talked to some of the returning students and parents. >> the kids have been great. it's just very tough to be here. tough experience. tough experience. they've been an inspiration to

me. >> i want to walk into the school with my head held high because that's what they would have wanted. >> feels strange now that it's like a place that i can't go in, like one of the buildings you pass by and you always wonder what the story is behind it. >> i am considering not sending my kids back to school unless i feel this is a safe environment for my children and the rest of the children. >> we're going to hold each other closer than we have before. >> i think out of all of this something beautiful is coming out of it and the whole community shows it. >> this school, the kids, they're speaking out, they can do a lot and they can change the laws in this country. i believe. i believe they can make history here. >> teachers are returning to work today and tomorrow and there is a little bit of joy in parkland thanks to the marjory stoneman douglas club hockey team. yesterday they won a state championship title. >> and nice to see that. >> it comes at a really good

time. i saw an interview with one of the students that said two weeks ago i was a bus boy cleaning up tables and washing dishes and toay i'm being compared to the freedom riders because they're pushing for change. >> must be so hard to walk through the halls again. >> i think so too. more than a dozen corporations including delta, airlines, hertz and the first national bank of omaha say they're ending nra member discounts and perks in the wake of the school shooting. the nra calls that a shameful display. axios reports companies are stepping up on social issues when government has been reluctant or gridlocked. mike allen and jim vandehei are the co-founders of axios and with us this morning. good morning. jim, let me ask you this question about at the nra. there's sometimes when corporations are ahead of politicians and that pulls the politicians along with them. sometimes corporations react to pressure different than the pressure that operates on politicians. which is at play here with the nra? >> i think there's two things
8:06 am
hitting a company simultaneously that are reshaping our relationship with the companies and the companies that we work for. one is social media. i mean, people can instantly put pressure on companies to make big decisions about their products. two is, and i see this even at axios, where the millennial work force has a different expectation of us as employers. they expect to take a stand and expect you to have opinions and expect you to stand for something bigger than just profit and companies are feeling this and you saw this with the muslim ban, you saw it with immigration, you saw it with global warming and you're seeing it with guns like companies like blackstone and bank of america say we will take a look at our client relationships with gun manufacturers. this never would have happened five or ten years ago. >> when i was coming up you didn't challenge the company boss. you might have thought he or she was wrong but wouldn't speak out about it so publicly. >> that's right. it's a lot harder now to be a ceo because these issues that jim is talking about and things
8:07 am
includes metoo, lbgt discrimination, this includes immigration, like all of those, it used to be risky for a brand or a company to talk about it, now they have to. it's funny this is partly a trump effect just in the last year, there's -- the incentives have changed from pulling back to now you have to speak up. >> that's because purchasers make their decisions every day about whether to fly delta or not. but voters are different in the way they behave. if you want to punish a lawmaker you have to wait until november and in this case you have a calcified group supporting second amendment rights and believe in them strongly so you have a pushback where with customer products you don't have a pushback. the way this affects on lawmakers isn't it going to be different? >> you're right. for all people who want change in the wake of this shooting, it has to be in voting. listen, since the 1994 election the reason that republicans and a lot of democrats, by the way, never challenge the nra is because they believe that it's political suicide to do so.
8:08 am
if millennials turn out and voters who are outraged turn out and suddenly you see members of congress losing because of the gun issue it won't just change it will change like that and instantly. because lawmakers respond to incentive and the incentive is i want to keep my job. if you lose your job because of it the game changes on a debate that is otherwise been defined differently for 30 years. >> i was talking to a lawmaker this weekend who pointed out something, your freedom rider is going to be a voter in 2020. >> that's right. >> and they're starting to realize that there's a big wave coming up and just as a their customer behavior is different, they also are a lot more likely to have their own opinions that mirror their folks or others have in the past. >> more millennials than baby boomers. >> the president will talk about this again with the nation's governors. congress comes back to work after a long break. do you expect anything to happen? >> it could happen. listen, this president more than anyone, he does have a super power. he has this ability to get
8:09 am
republicans to do things that we always thought they wouldn't do. we saw it play out on deficits and how republicans view the fbi. so if he said listen, we're going to do something and really raise the age and toughen background checks, we're going to even go after the assault weapon ban if he wanted to do it he could do it. i don't think he will because his cues are always he muses in public what he talks about in private when he talks in public he's talking about arming teachers. that's the thing that has him most amped up right now. i don't think anybody thinks that the solution and not a pathway to a bipartisan compromise to get significant gun legislation. >> will he have to use his super power to get his personal pilot to be head of the faa something he's throwing out there? is his pilot qualified number one? >> so this is the pilot who flew trump force 1 during the campaign, john duncan, a great name, and we're talking in the green room if we became president we would appoint our friends to a bunch of jobs,
8:10 am
somebody in the axios story saying this is like on "seinfeld" when cramer uses his caddie as a jury consultant. >> yes. >> so what are you saying? >> has to be confirmed by the senate. >> the president of the united states has put forward his personal pilot to run the faa. we joke. it's not a joke. it's a massive part of the bureaucracy that regulates what happens in the air. and this is -- goes to the heart of how donald trump does run the presidency like a family business. he's got his son-in-law sitting there making big decisions when he can't clear the background check to be able to get security clearance to have access to the most sensitive intelligence. >> this is -- >> his daughter ivanka, intimately involved in tons of public policy. there's so many days we're like we laugh but this isn't normal. it's not normal to have this many family members this about intertwined in the operation of the white house for the obvious reason when it happens it presents conflicts of reasons.

a reason chief of staff kelly is outraged by this, doesn't want the kids there. because it just makes life more complicated for the people who are there trying to do their jobs and not feel like the deck is stacked because they're not part of the family circle. >> this is how trump has run his business for decades. >> all right. and is the pilot qualified? that's what i'm curious about. >> trump force one. >> mike allen. >> trump used to say he liked his plane better than air force one. >> mike and jim, thank you very much for joining us at the table. samsung reveals the newest % smartphone. dan ackerman is in green room and has it. it's the new galaxy s9 plus. a big long title. he will show us the features and is it better than apple'
