good morning. the reset? >> believe in yourselves. believe in your future. and believe once more in america. >> president trump strikes a decidedly different tone in his first address to congress. >> the time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. >> is this new version of mr. trump here to stay inis his agenda heavy on jobs, healthcare reform and national security ambitious or overpromising? >> everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. every problem can be solved. >> this morning, reaction from both sides as
7:01 am
mike pence and senate minority leader chuck schumer join us. deadly out break. tornados cut swaths of destruction across the midwest. three people killed, homes destroyed. these cars blown off an interstate. the severe weather moving east with 106 million people in its path. uber awkward. the ceo of the ride service caught on camera getting into a heated argument with one of his own drivers. >> you drop the prices. >> yes, you did. >> his brutally honest apology. why he says it's time for him to grow up, today, wednesday, march first, 2017. good morning, welcome to
7:02 am
first address to a joint session of congress. big moment, big opportunity and kind of a different side to mr. trump. >> everybody is talking about the tone and how different it was from the tone of the inaugural address just about a month ago. of course, the president's speech is our top story this morning. mr. trump spoke for a little bit more than an hour, outlining his vision for the country. while defending his administration's controversial policies with that noticeably softer tone. our political team is ready to break it down. we'll get reaction from vice president mike pence, and one of the top democrats on capitol hill, senator chuck schumer. let's talk with nbc's peter last at the white house. >> reporter: aides a celebrating the speech as a grand slam. they're supposed to do that. the reviews have been positive because the speech was traditional. many branding it the best of mr. trump's short political career. the president calling on democrats and republicans to work with
7:03 am
reinvest in america. in president trump's first address to congress, a familiar america first theme but a strikingly more measured tune. >> i'm here to deliver a message of unity and strength and it's a message deeply delivered from my heart. >> reporter: the president out of the gate denouncing recent threats to jeweish centers and schools as well as last week's murder of an indian man. >> we may be a nation divided on policies we stand united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms. >> reporter: hours after signaling what would be a major policy shift, an openness to a pathway of legalization for undocumented immigrants. a vague promise of immigration reform. >> real and positive immigration reform is possible. >> reporter: mr. trump ordering the department of homeland security to create a new office
7:04 am
committed by immigrants. drawing loud growns from democrats. >> reporter: the offipresident n vowing to replace the imploding obamacare disaster. >> obamacare is exploding and we must act to protect all americans. >> reporter: mr. trump offering an optimistic message. >> everyone that is broke in in our country can be fixed. every problem can be solved. >> reporter: his remarks distinctly nationalistic on schools. >> education is the civil rights issue of our time. >> reporter: trade. >> we must create a level playing field for american companies and our workers. >> reporter: and infrastructure. >> the time has come for program
7:05 am
>> reporter: the president's hour long address cast by the white house as unifying and revealing the depth of partisan divisions exist. the congressional women wearing white. on foreign policy mr. trump was restrained but forceful. >> we are taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: the night's most poignant poemoment. the president's praise for a slain navy s.e.a.l. killed earlier this year in yemen. his widow overwhelmed by emotion. >> i just spoke to our great general mattis, just now, who we confirm, and i quote, ryan was a part of a highly successful raid. that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will
7:06 am
the future against our enemy. ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. >> reporter: the bipartisan ovation lasting for nearly two minutes. that was a powerful moment last night. president trump was much more disciplined, largely steering clear of the controversies that have weighed heavily on his presidency. no mention of russia, a single criticism of the media. with white house officials here reveling in the reviews this morning, aides tell me the president's revised travel ban is being delayed. >> peter, thank you. chuck schumer is with us. i know it was a late night. >> good morning. >> before we get to the substance of the speech, let's talk about this decisive change in the president's tone. is this a kinder gentler donald trump? do you buy it? n
7:07 am
with this president, more than any other, his speeches are detached from reality. he and his campaign and even his inaugural speech he talks to the working people of america. for the last 40 days his actions have been on the side of the special interests. infrastructure. we haven't seen a plan. democrats for a month have put a plan on the schedule -- on the ground. he hasn't talked a thing about infrastructure. his advisors say next year. trade. he had great example to do something on trade. called cho called china a currency manipulator. education, medical -- >> senator -- >> one more. the swamp. he's going to clean the swamp when he has a cabinet of billionaires and wall street -- >> that brought a groan -- let
7:08 am
let us get back on unity. you didn't find a lot of reasons to stand and cheer. give me one thing where you found yourself saying yes, i can get behind him on that issue. >> he's given a whole lot of speeches. we've seen that the speeches and the reality don't match. i'll say yes when he comes up with something that helps working people and says i want to work with democrats -- >> in an hour, you didn't hear one thing that you can stand behind this morning? >> look, i was touched by the mention of the widow of the brave soldier who died in yemen and things like that. but, no. it's hard to see any place where the president actually has done something for working people. >> senator -- >> you know, a speech has a shelf life. people forgot his inaugural speech. he had 40 days, very difficu
7:09 am
like his speeches. i predict the same thing is going to happen. this speech will be forgotten in a day or two. where's the action? where's the actual doing things to help working people? that's what we want. >> let's talk about immigration reform. a big issue. he campaigned on it. he signaled an openness to a compromise. earlier in the day was reported to have said perhaps even a pathway for undocumented immigrants to have legal status, would that be sufficient for you to get a deal done? >> well, again, we've been to this movie before. this is the third time in the last month he has mentioned he might be for some kind of immigration reform. his advisors and base made him pull it back. it's so typical, the national reporters, he mentions this. his speech, tone is totally anti-immigrant. this is what america is up against. a president who says one thing bu
7:10 am
that's why his administration has such trouble. >> listening to all you're saying, doesn't it surprise you that a poll that says that seven in ten americans say they ended feeling more optimistic as opposed to less optimistic. >> speeches has a shelf life. everyone has forgotten his inaugural speech. he's got to do something. not for special interests as he's been doing but for working people. plain and simpsult. >> thanks to being with us. we'll hear from vice president mike pence joining lester in our next half hour. let's focus on the major take aways from the president's address with today's fact check. we turn to kristin welker, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. like most big speeches there was a lot of soaring rhetoric tuesday night. our fact check shows some of the president's statements didn't add up. including on some of
7:11 am
jobs and the economy. president trump laid out his vision for the country tuesday. one of his top promises creating more jobs. arguing millions are out of work. >> 94 million americans are out of the labor force. >> reporter: that figure may be overstated. right now the unemployment rate is just 4.8% with roughly 7 million looking for a job. the 94 million includes people who are not looking for work like students, stay at home parents and retired americans. still, mr. trump pushed forward on the issue of j creation. citing his recent call for construction of oil pipelines here in the united states. >> we have cleared the way for the construction of the keystone and dakota access pipelines. thereby creating tens of thousands of jobs. >> reporter: a look at the numbers tells a different story. the dakota access pipeline is nearly
7:12 am
the state department says keystone could create a maximum of 16,000 temporary direct jobs. the number of permanent jobs created due to the ystone pipeline is just 35. >> since my election, ford, fiat chrysler, intel, walmart have announced they will invest billions of dollars in the united states. and will create tens of thousands of new american jobs. >> reporter: the president taking credit for business decisions that were largely made prior to his election. and on his call to boost military spending by $54 billion. >> i am sending congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the defense sequester. >> reporter: the white house has said they'll pay for that by slashing domestic programs. but democrats and some republicans argue without reforming entitlements like social secty
7:13 am
won't add up. finally this ad-lib line is getting attention. >> i can tell you, the money is pouring in. very nice. >> reporter: the reality, in 2016, four countries met the required payment standards. that money goes to nato or to beefing up the military of its member countries. not surprisingly the president repeat a familiar republican talking point that obamacare is collapsing. democrats and republicans have plenty of arguments supporting or knocking down that assertion. take your pick. the key question, will republicans be able to keep their promise and continue coverage for the 20 million americans who have health coverage who didn't before? >> kristin welker at the white house, thank you very much. let us bring in nicole wallace. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let me take you back 40 days to the inaugural dress. the line that came out of that
7:14 am
what's the line from last night that will set the tone for the next several months? >> the line that will be replayed over and over again is the promise that what is behind us are the trivial fights. trivial fights is what he engaged in on twitter all day every day. we talked about in there was an intervention where he live and dies by his feedback loop. >> republicans were pleased at his performance last night are asking themselves can he sustain it. do his supporters want him to? do they want to see this version? >> they do. this is very comforting. not just to the establishment republicans who have been doing hammering for the last 19 months. they want him to bece
7:15 am
agenda. >> a lot of democrats don't trust what they saw last night. one of the reasons could be all they have to do is go back a week and listen to the kind of message steve bannon delivered at cpac. do you think he deserved credit where credit is do? >> he made democrats uncomfortable who will have a hard time opposing massive infrastructure spending. and republicans in the congress who may be on the fence with his conservative creds. he's nominated a credible supreme court justice and talked the talk last night on healthcare and other issues. >> all right. nicole, thanks very much. appreciate it. another big story we're following this morning in the weather. a line of storms has spawned deadly tornados and extensive damage all across the midwest. we're in the hard hit town
7:16 am
ottawa, illinois. >> reporter: at least three people dead this morning from these overnight storms, including one person here in ottawa, illinois. you can see debris blocking roads, downed power lines. making them too dangerous to pass. and as the sun comes up, folks will soon see the full extent of the damage. tornados ripping through the midwest overnight. leaving behind a twisted path of destruction. in illinois. cell phone video captured the fear. >> holy crop. >> reporter: and shock of seeing a massive funnel cloud touch down. some people lost everything. >> it was all sentimental stuff. and there's no saving it now. >> person trapped under a tree, not breathing. >> reporter: here in the small town of ottawa, the damage is devastating. at least one person was killed by a tree, ripped from the ground. in missouri, near perry
7:17 am
twister blew cars off the interstate. buildings and homes shredded by high winds, killing one person there. >> why does this always happen after night comes? it's very difficult up there, all the emergency vehicles, the lights. >> reporter: in arkansas, recovery operations are underway this morning in white county after the storm uprooted trees and downed power lines. injuring more than a dozen people. >> we've never had anything like this since i've been around. it's pretty wild. your family and friends you grew up with, their house is tore up. everything a mess. >> reporter: and the threat is not over yet. in fact, it moves east today. more damaging winds, thunderstorms and even tornados possible. we'll be watching flight delays and cancellations closely. that's because the weather today will stretch
7:18 am
to new orleans. >> thank you so much. that sets the table very well for you, al. >> right now, atlanta has the ground stop going on. and ahead of these thunderstorms, and it is going to be a strong and very dangerous day today. right now, we've got storms stretching from upstate new york to memphis where we have tornado watches in effect. we're watching the storms right now. they are racing, 75-85 miles per hour. you cannot out run them in a car. 106 million people under the risk for severe weather today. scattered tornados likely. straight line winds can cause big problems. the system moves through new york, all the way down to new orleans as blake had mentioned. those travel delays will continue. we have a risk for flooding from nashville to western pennsylvania for one to three inches of rain from the continuing round of thunderstorms. we'll get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.

7:30 now on a wednesday 7:30 on a wednesday morning. it's the first of march, 2017. we'll see hi to these people in just a little while. let's come on inside studio 1a and get headlines on this wednesday morning. president trump, delivered his first address to a joint session of congress last night. during the hour-long speech he urged lawmakers to repeal and replace obamacare. vows to secure the nation's borders and called for rebuilding the nation's infrastructure. the president's agenda rolled out with a call for unity. >> he time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. we just need the courage to

7:32 am
hello to the vice president for us. >> i sure will, good morning. and good morning, vice president pence, thank you for having us. before we talk about the substance of the speech. a lot of folks are talking about the tone. it was a much softer tone. he hit a lot of the same points we heard before. there was no american carnage or dishonest media. did you counsel him to dial it back? >> it was a great speech and great night for america. what the american people saw, is the president i serve with every day. broad shoulders, a big heart and he laid out a specific agenda, which is the agenda that he ran on when he was elected in november. it's an agenda to repeal and replace obamacare. to rebuild this country's infrastructure, to have better and smarter trade deals. >> he has talked about a lot of those things, sometimes had a combative way. he wasn't last night. did you or others counsel him to bring it back?
7:33 am
president that i saw last night is the president that i've seen every day since i joined this campaign. he's a fighter. and when it comes time to making his case to the american people and fighting for what he believes in, he brings that case and brings it strong. i think -- maybe it was the context, the unique nature of an address to the joint session of congress. the american people got a look at the president in full. they saw his strength. they saw his compassion. they saw his determination to move this country forward with optimism. i just competent be more proud to be a small part of it. >> to the extent he was able to articulate his vision in a different way. have you not gone as far as you can with executive orders and are facing the tough work of negotiating with congress? >> what the president did last night is what great presidents do. he laid out an agenda for congress and the american
7:34 am
the president made the case we need to repeal obamacare. it's hurting american families and stifling our economy. people have been premium increases of more than 100%. insurance companies are fleeing these exchanges. making a case against obamacare was first. but even more importantly, he laid out a framework, lester, for congress. and said here are my principles as you look at replacing obamacare. here's how we'll make a better healthcare system in america. that's the kind of leadership that will guide the congress and guide the legislative process to a better future. >> he talked about obamacare would be one of the things he would do day one. that hasn't happened. he said recently, wow, it's a lot more complicated than anyone thought. i know many people in this town will disagree with that. matt brought that up to speaker ryan yesterday. and said he's more of a chairman, more like the ceo of a company and i've got good people. are you one of those people that are going to work his ground game?
7:35 am
part of it. one of the reasons who ithe president asked me to join the team last summer had something to do with me being a governor and served in congress. make no mistake about it, i think that last night represented a moment where the president in an unfiltered way, was able to present his agenda to the american people. to present both his strength and his heart. and it gives me great confidence that we're now going to be able to move this country forward. hopefully in a bipartisan way. and the president started last night on what truly unites us in this country. in condemning the hatred and anti-semitism that has emerged in acts and threats in reason days. it was an important moment. but he ended the speech, lester by calling on republicans and democrats to come together. to set aside the trivial arguments of the present day. and move toward

go ahead, enjoy. ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled,
7:55 am
can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at mybreo.com.

9:49 am
every time you're making a cup of coffee, you're cooking up germs, too. danielle, toys. i saw your kids loved playing with this one. does anybody disinfect it? >> not really. you have to think about cleaning toys as much as we clean the counter tops. i see something else that is a big culprit, the tv remote. i bet the kids think of this as a toy for themselves sometimes, too, right? one spot in the bathroom we get concerned about is actually the toothbrush holder. we tell people all the time to replace their toothbrushes every couple of weeks or when you're sick. >> right. >> but it is the bottom of the container that's just a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. i'm sure you know the ipad can be a ger mmy place, right? it is not cleaned every time someone touches it. you want to whiep ipe it down w disinfectant wipe. thank for having us.
9:50 am

9:51 am
we also found staph aureus. when it causes infection, it can range from skin infections to more serious blood-bourn infections. the last one, we have the ipad. the ipad also, we found two bacteria commonly found in water and soil and don't cause disease. we were actually pleasantly surprised by the findings. in spite of the fact that these are places where we do find a lot of more dangerous bacteria, like e. coli. we didn't find it here. >> am i right in saying that staph is on our skin all the time, around us all the time? >> about 1/3 of the population -- well, there are different kinds of staph. the one that causes disease is found in 1/3 of the population. it is when you get a break in the skin that it can cause infection. >> okay. >> excellent question, nick. >> sweetie, sorry but that remote doesn't work. >> trying to change the channel. >> you know what, so do my kids when i'm on. next?
9:52 am
>> okay. >> the coffeemaker, toothbrush and kitchen sink. >> we have the coffee reservoir. we found a lot of yeast. a yeast. here's the thing, the majority of the yeast that we found doesn't cause infection in people who are otherwise healthy. in the toothbrush holder, also, we didn't find any yeast and we didn't find any in the kitchen sink. you guys are doing a really good job. >> clean house. wow. >> what do you think about the results? >> we have the five-second rule at our house. drop it and pick it up, it still goes in the mouth. that's the -- >> yeah. we had the question, so this information is useful but i think more useful is how do you clean those objects, right? >> right. >> let's take the toy, for example. what the recommendation is, is to use soap, warm water and a mild bleach solution. you want to be doing your toys once a week. i'm not sure most of us do that. >> probably a good thing to do. we'll put more on the
