diplomatic barrier with mexico as he took a trip to the gop conference in philadelphia, cameras capturing his ride home. the rest of the day, turbulent, amid a bitter back and forth over who will pay for the wall, mexico insisting it won't. upset and under pressure by mr. trump's executive action ordering the wall,e's president canceling a planned visit to the u.s. trump casting it as a mutual decision. >> unless mexico is going to treat the united states fairly with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless and i want to go a different route. >> reporter: later in the day, press secretary sean spicer floating the idea of a 20% tax on next cap imports, a move some say could ultimately force american taxpayers to bear a heavier burden by paying more for goods like cars, fruits and vegetables and alcohol. the white house disputing
7:04 am
>> i think what it will do is lift up the wages of american workers, as well. >> reporter: but then top administration officials walked back the tax indicating it's one of a buffet of options. but the president himself telling peter alexander we cannot lose our companies to mexico or any other place. and then have them make the product and just send across our boredy free. we'll put a substantial tax on those countries. the president also set to reaffirm the u.s. relationship with british prime minister theresa may, the two will meet today for the first time to discuss a range of topics from trade to national security. but a bit of a protocol faux pas ahead of her arrival, the white house misspelling may's first name, but quickly sending out a correction. overnight the president signaled to fox news he may be closer to blocking refugees from countries including syria, iraq, iran and yemen. >> we'll have extreme vetting for people coming into our country and if we

a problem, it won't be so easy for people to come in anymore. >> reporter: and calling isis sneaky dirty rats while insisting waterboarding is not torture, a tactic that was banned under president obama. >> stotorture is real torture. waterboarding i'm sure it's not pleasant, but it was just short of torture. >> reporter: the president still defending turnout at his inauguration. first reported by the "washington post" and confirmed by a signor administration official to nbc news, mr. trump called the national park service asking for more photos of the mall from his inauguration. apparently hoping they would back up his claims. not supported by other pictures from that day that he had a larger inaugural crowd than barack obama in 2009. senior administration official tells nbc news that call shows mr. trump's management title to be accessible and constantly in touch. today he will go to the pentagon for the swearing in of james

mattis. nbc has also learned president trump will hold a with russian president vladimir putin this weekend. relations are chilliest in decades. matt, natalie. >> kristen welker, thank you very much. we're joined by former president fox. good morning. nice to talk to you. >> good morning, matt, good morning natalie, good morning united states. >> you are not only a former president of mexico, but are you a history buff. you are a student of history. i wonder if you could compare where we are right now in u.s./mexico relations to any other difficult times you've seen. >> i think we are at the lowest point since the war between the mexico and united states
7:07 am
nationalization of the oil companies that were abusing over mexico. he took away the industry, nationalized it. and i think it was a very courageous, very strong thing to do but welcomed by all mexicas.s just todayed president pefa stand in front of this guy trump has brought back very strong mexican spirit and we're ready for the trade war. we're ready of course for not paying that wall. >> because you've adamantly said mexico will not pay for this wall. president trump is insisting that mexico will. though how that will happen may be somewhat complicated. is there any sort of diplomatic resolution at this point, president fox? >> no, not at all because president penais
7:08 am
position. and neeps playing around with everybody, keeps throwing smoke balls by proposing a 20% tax on mexican imports, it's nonsense. he's playing around with american people. he's playing around with mexico. because if he can tax who will be paying at the end for the wall is the same american people, the american consumer. >> do you think it will spark a wider trade war? >> i don't think he will do it because there is so much to lose for united states starting with 10 million jobs where mexico is accountable for u.s. citizens by what we import every year into mexi mexico. so th first big
7:09 am
states is 10 million u.s. promised to protect. he's doing exactly the opposite. >> you've said that this debate has energized the mexican people, but your current president is in a difficult spot. he has historically low approval ratings, about 12%. the mexican people want him to t stand up to donald trump and protect their reputation, but if he draws a line in the sand, president fox, doesn't he risk severe economic impact to his country? >> president pena is already coming back to much higher popularity levels. i know that when they nationalized the oil industry and took it away from abusive u.s. oil corporations, he became the most popular president in mexico. so this is a big
7:10 am
president pena. >> president fox, do you think that president pena made the right move by canceling his visit here to the united states? could there have been more discussion had he met face-to-face with president trump? >> it was a very wise you've because at this stage, trump keeps pretending to play around with u.s. citizens as well as with mexico. but now he found out that you don't play around with mexico. as we say, we might not be too big, but we are smart and we're firm. we speak about sovereignty, when we're speaking about honesty, when we're talking about dignity. and this is what president pena is defending. it didn't matter what the amount of money is. it's a matter of
7:11 am
it's an mexico. and i think president trump is plnd wgh everybody. throwing this smoke balls and it will not work for him. he has now faced his first defeat and he cannot digest a defeat. his ego doesn't let him do that. so he keeps on agressing. >> president fox, really appreciate your time this morning. thank you. in addition to president trump's aggressive moves on immigration, he is also moving ahead with his call to investigate thousand widely debunked claims of rampant voter fraud. peter alexander has more on that. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. this morning senior white house aides tell me that that executive order on voter fraud could come as early as today or tomorrow. but the bottom line is that experts say the issue isn't voter fraud,
7:12 am
four of those closest to president trump are actually among those registered in two states. one week into his presidency, president trump is still focused on the results of the election that propelled him into office claiming widespread voter fraud for costing him the popular vote. >> we'll protect the integrity of the ballot box and we're going to defend the votes of the american citizen. so important. >> reporter: the president repeatedly blaming millions of illegally cast ballots despite offering no concrete evidence. >> people are registered in two states. new york and new jersey. they vote twice. there are millions of votes in my opinion. >> reporter: in fact voting officials say there is no evidence of such widespread fraud, but they do agree with the president that millions are registered in multiple states. among them, mes of trump's inner circle, steve bannon, steve mnuchin, even the
7:13 am
nbc news confirming he's registered in both new york and new jersey. first daughter tiffany trump records show registered in new york and pennsylvania despite kellyanne conway denying that here on today. >> i talked last night with tiffany and she said it is flatly false that she is registereded in two states. >> reporter: i asked conway about it again thursday night. >> she told me she had filed all the appropriate paperwork, she had gone through the entire account with me. and as far as she knew, it had been done. >> reporter: it's not against the law to be register in two states and it doesn't mean voters are casting ballots twice, which is illegal. the problem experts say, not that fraud is being committed, but voter rolls can be out of date. a problem many states are already addressing. 20 states and the district of columbia are part of the program that requires them to share voter data every 60 days and keeps voter files
7:14 am
in 2016, the program identified about 2 million voters who had moved or passed away. but the integrity of the 2016 vote experts say was better than ever before. i'm told that language is still being finalized for the executive order, that it won't necessarily be an investigation, but perhaps more of a revie traditional executive order doesn't necessarily mean that this would be a criminal inquiry. back to you. >> peter, thanks so much. let's bring in steve kornacki and nicolle wallace. >> let's get you to give us the headlines of the week already. >> well, i think one week in, one headline is that chaos rules at this white house. and the other one has to be that this is going to be a tale of split screen america. his detractors will find cause every day to light whatever is left of their hair on fire and his supporters will find little kernels of him keeping his word. >> i think whatever you think of what he's doing, we can say that rarely in american hto
7:15 am
r a shock to the system. and that's what we're seeing. i think as people in both parties were used to washington working akd politics working a certain way, not being sure how to process this. >> and one other thing, he ran on the wall. we'll build that wall. he also ran on idea, that the media is bad and dishonest. now his chief strategist at the white house steve bannon has given an interview to the "new york times." i want to read you a couple things he said. quote, the media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while. another quote, the med her is the opposition party. they don't understand this country. they still don't understand why donald trump is president of the united states. people watch position may say, well, i agree with some of that. the media did get the election wrong. but there is a reason he made these statements at this particular time. what is the political strategy here? >> he's trying to buck up his number one client. and the truth is, the leader of the free world is obsessed with his media coverage.
7:16 am
to turn off the tv aing the country. and i think they're trying to -- the truth is, he gets sad when he watches his coverage. he gets sad and bummed out when -- he city wants the pictures of his crowd. >> what do you think about that? >> i think it's also almost an invitation to the media trying to bait them into fighting instead of reporting. trying to bait them in to some kind of fight that they can turn around and say, hey, being look, they are out to get us which makes it a challenge for the media. almost like a referee at a basketball game. coaches are yelling you, just keep calling the game. >> but it worked for him in the election to discounts the media. >> i talked to voters and they are happy to see him stand up for himself. but they are frustrated when it looks like he's squandering valuable time in the petty fights. >> let me play you a portion of what barack obama had to say to the media the press in his last press briefing.
7:17 am
syncopha syncnt you're supposed to ask critical questions and make sure that we are accountable to the people who sent us here. and you have done that. >> these two feelings ten days apart. >> he was anticipating this moment clearly. he's seeing how donald trump had been handling the media and he had concerns about that. but i do have to say in fairness, obama saying that on the way out of the office versus some of the things he said in office, i know one of his top aides back in 2009 said fox news was the opposition. >> presidents they ev s never l press coverage that they get, but neither is there a point this history where we can call where they sent the press secretary out to lie to the p c
7:18 am
escalations in tensionswi mexat world leaders will read into this. >> watching you guys with president fox, i was thinking about george w. bush's relationship with president fox. it was one of his closest friends in the world. and next he company has the first state dinner of the bush years. wow, what a difference this administration is ushering in. i think it gives a lot of people concerned about how we treat our adversaries. >> we have to make that the last word. thank you very much. tens of thousands are expected on the national mall today to take part in the march for life. the march is held each year to mark the anniversary of the 1973 supreme court decision legalizing abortion. vice president mike pence is scheduled to speak at the event. the first time in history that a sitting president or vice president has ever spoken at the march. president trump adviser kellyanne conway is also on the list of speakers. for the f t
7:19 am
abortion opponents say they have political momentum. this week the president signed a ban of support to foreign groups that provide abortion glo. take a look, oklahoma's center clearly frustrated. he bunchpunches the claire an fracturesis right foerearm. no word on how long he will be out. to college now, what is being called one of the biggest flops of all time. watch the oregon ducks forward dylan brooks after a brief contact, brooks suddenly lunges backward, struck by some invisible force. it didn't work. he was charged with a foul. utah fans not amused. but the ducks went on to win the game. >> is this soccer or basketball? >> that's a
7:20 am
mr. roker and get a first check of your friday and weekend forecast. >> let's show you what we've got. lake-effect snow, big story this weekend. and the reason for this is because it's awfully warm and we haven't seen a lot of ice over the great lakes. so arctic air normally comes swooping down out of canada, across the great lakes, picks up warmer moister air. usually by this time, you start to see the snow build up. but it starts to get cut off because we have more lake freezing over the ice. so that of course cuts off the moisture that is available. normally this time of year we'd have 50% of the great lakes covered by ice, but this year, 1% to maybe 10%. so that allows a lot of moisture. so look at the amounts we'll be seeing this weekend. anywhere from 12 inches in western pennsylvania and new york to up to 3 feet around the tug hill plateau. we'll get you youroc
