6:00 am
no cuts at all to cerebral security or medicare. >> not a cent folks. all this comes as president trump gets ready to deliver the big joint -- we're hearing not what we haired 234 his campaign speech on friday. critical in the administration's ef forlgts to divert the spotlight. joe johns this morning at the white house. good morning, joe. >> reporter: good morning, john and poppy. this is an early peek at what
6:01 am
the white house is thinking ability in terms of his budget blueprint. nothing final. as you said, there are a few bullet points already. number one, trying to increase defense spending big time. at the same time, cutting a lot of other agencies apparently and doing their best to maintain the status quo, we're told, on some of the big entitlements, medicare and social security. meanwhile, last night, speaking to the national governor's association, the president trying to build excitement around approaching a way to deal with one of his signatures on the campaign rail, that would be the repeal and replacement of obamacare. listen. >> as most of you know the obamacare has had tremendous problems. i won't say in front of the democrats, i'll say it to republicans, it doesn't work. we'll have it fixed and we'll repeal and replace and you'll see something very, very
6:02 am
special. >> meanwhile, the house dealing with nor nominee drama, phillip bill den, the nominee for secretary of the navy has now withdrawn his name from consideration, apparently citing problems with his business interests. a lot for the white house to do. they're ex-p pekted to meet with the national governor's association and some of the top republicans from congress coming over to the white house to sit down with the president in advance of his big speech tomorrow. >> joe johns at the white house. we should say we are expecting to hear from the president within a half an hour speaking with the governors. we could hear shortly about what his exact budget blueprint will be. let's hear from retired general spider marks and stephen moore, a distinguished visiting fellow at the heritage foundation. gentlemen, when you hear big increases in military spending, as a military man, what big increases, general, does the
6:03 am
military need? >> john, thanks for having me on this morning. i think what the military must not do -- i hate to answer the question by saying what we shouldn't do first, but we just simply can't pile on on our current capabilities. we have learned the military, our military has learned over the course of 15-plus years and combat of what we do well and don't do well and what our future requirements -- we are seeing every day in combat what those future engagements look like, will look like and what success our enemies will have going against us. so the military across the board and all the services have some very distinct capabilities that they need to address. for example, the army i would suggest needs more ability to put boots on the ground, to increase the number of soldiers that can affect operations on the ground, when things aren't as clear as you'd like them to be, when the intelligence apparatus may not give better insight. what's the best collector?
6:04 am
the best collector is somewhere on the ground. the navy and air force have to provide an anti aerial denial capability. they can deny us through other means such as air defense capabilities, the ability for the united states to penetrate and influence operations in these multiple dimensions. certainly the marine corps is a capability that must be able to launch very quickly, very rapidly over the horizon, so those capabilities need to be addressed. we learned this over the course of years. that's where the spending needs to go. >> do the math, senior moore, senior economic adviser on the campaign. you know how these numbers work. you spend a lot more on the military. you cut taxes, you do no touch, not a set, entitlement. how does this not blow a hole in the deficit? >> i agree with the general, you just don't want to throw money at the military without a good plan in terms of how it's going
6:05 am
to be spent. we do spend, by the way, more money at the federal level on our national defense and military than germany, russia, china and england combined. so we already have a gigantic military. you want to make sure that money is being spent wisely. how do you get the numbers to add up? a couple things. first of all, i do agree with donald trump something he always said in ply vat and on the campaign trail, you've got to get the growth rate up. only growing at less than 2% for the last five or six years. we need to get the growth up to 3% to 4%. if you do that, that helps a lot. >> but if you don't? >> if he wants to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the next five or six years and wants to spend more on infrastructure, that means just about everything else, poppy, is going to have to get cut. i've had a little sneak preview of some of these numbers, and my colleagues at the heritage
6:06 am
foundation put a lot of these numbers together for the trump administration. it means there's going to be significant cuts in a lot of these domestic agencies. they've looked for areas where you can find waste and duplication. one statistic i know trump wants to go after, $160 billion a year in erroneous payments under programs like social security, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, earned income tax credit. that's a way to significantly reduce spending without hurting the people who need the money. >> first of all, i know the president -- everyone wants growth at 3, 4, 5, 6%. this budget blueprint is assuming 2.4%. so there's that. let me ask you, do you think long-term that this is sustainable without cuts to entitlements? >> that's a great question. the answer is probably not. probably at some point in the next few years we'll have to get very serious, john, about how do
6:07 am
we really rein in the costs. health care costs have been exploding so much. i would make this point, john, if the trump plan works, and we don't quite know what it's going to be in terms of what they're going to repeal obamacare with, but if you can bring down the inflation and health care costs, that saves a lot of money in medicare and some of these other programs. that's going to be a key. but i would throw that challenge to some of my friends on the democratic side of the aisle. they are eager for trump to say, i want to cut social security and medicare, so they can throw those tv ads on cnn showing republicans throwing grandma off the cliff. republicans wisely have not fallen into that trap. i think to solve those problems, john, of medicare and social security, you need true bipartisanship from both parties to take the lead. >> general, before we let you go, we want to ask you about something else making headlines
6:08 am
this morning. general mcmaster, the new national security adviser is clearly on a different page than the president when it comes to terminology and idea sfieing the enemy. he said over the weekend he thinks the term radical islamic terror is unhelpful and also said russia is not our friend. is that problematic? that's what the president said pointing the finger at hillary clinton, she won't use that terminology. now the national security adviser saying using that term is not helpful. >> we see the formation that has senior folks in this administration that have used language different from our president begins to increase. i think what h.r. mcmaster is saying makes perfect sense. clearly we have a challenge with a religion that a percentage of it has been hijacked and in the name of that religion bad things are happening around the globe. i think we'd all agree with that. it's not an entire indictment of that religion. we'd all agree with that.
6:09 am
what general mcmaster is what we would see secretary mattis say and other folks say which is, look, the president is pushing us in a certain direction. we, members of the cabinet who are practitioners, we have to make this happen. we're the ones that you're going to deal with. let us try to approach this in a way that allows us to maintain communications with friends and to make sure our enemies understand that we won't abide their behavior. truly what we need to be able to do is build this alliance, continue to build an alliance because we're not going to solve these problems by ourselves. >> can i make one quick point? you asked earlier about how are you going to make all these numbers add up. the general kind of reminded me of this. let's not forget one of the proposals donald trump has put on the table which is quite controversial, especially on the other side of the pond, is making some of those native countries pay the united states more for the military assistance and the defense we give them. a lot of americans think that's a good idea.
6:10 am
i believe we can probably raise tens of billions of dollars if those countries paid their fair share. >> general, stephen, thank you so much. >> appreciate it guys. as early as today the pentagon will submit the plan to try to achieve what the obama administration could not, the defeat of isis. remember the president made that 30-day promise. tomorrow marks that 30-day deadline. >> it comes as the white house is facing stinging criticism from the father of a navy s.e.a.l. killed on that anti terror mission in yemen. last month william ryan owens became the first combat death under the trump presidency. today his father calling for an investigation into that raid. >> another gold star father struggling with his grief, very much wanting to know more from the u.s. government about what happened to his son. let me read you a couple of quotes from this military dad about what he wants to see the
6:11 am
administration do. and i want to quote mr. owen. he says in an interview with "the miami herald," why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn't even barely a week into his administration, the trump administration. why? for two years earlier there were no boots on the ground in yemen. everything was missiles and drones because there was not a target worth one american life. now all of a sudden we had to make this grand display. he goes on to say, don't hide behind my son's death to prevent an investigation. i want an investigation. the government owes my son an investigation. mr. owens appears to be looking for more of an investigation into the white house decision making, why did they decide to pursue this mission in yemen. and we've asked a number of officials this morning. they point to what they pointed to when this happened. it was an idea, a mission originally conceived broadly as a yemen mission during the obama
6:12 am
administration. it was up to the trump administration in its early days to decide to carry it out. they are investigating number of matters related to this, but whether this gold star father will find all the answers he's looking for remains to be scene. john, poppy? >> barbara starr, thank you very much. remember there was the back and forth between mccain and the administration about whether or not this was a success ses or not and can you call it a success when you have a death like that and injuries. we have a lot ahead this hour. as the president kicks off a big, big week, an unprecedented crackdown we learned from those leaks coming inside the white house. talk about a shocking ending it may have been the best oscars telecast ever, what turned out to be the biggest mixup ever. that's next.

6:15 am
6:16 am
i want to show you live pictures of the white house. any minute we're expecting to hear from president trump. he's meeting with the nation's
6:17 am
governors and he could announce his budget plans. next hour he meets with top health insurance executives. tomorrow night he delivers his first address before a joint session of congress. on wednesday we could get a revamped travel ban. all this as the white house is trying to crack down on leaks to the media. >> quite a week ahead. carol is the national correspondent from "the washington post." jeffrey lord joins us, cnn political commentator and contributing editor at the american spec talter. nice to have you here. what a week it is. john just outlined it. now it's time for the meat on the bones. i think rahm emanuel made a good point having worked in the white house under the last president saying there's a really big difference between motion and action. now it's time for action come tomorrow night. we're hearing some republican leaders really want the
6:18 am
president to finally put specifics to his baem care plans and getting behind the leading plans on the hill right now. what should we expect? >> that's right. this is the virtual equivalent of a "state of the union" address, when the president traditionally spells out his laundry list of things he's going to do for the american people, that he wants done for the american people. this cannot be a speech about donald trump and his battles with the media or about donald trump's electoral victories. people will be listen for specifics. don't forget, by this time in the first year of his presidency, barack obama had already signed into law his economic stimulus infrastructure package, and by this time in his presidency, george w. bush had laid out the details of his tax cuts. while the president has talked about having done a lo of action at this point in terms of the
6:19 am
nuts and bolts of getting things through congress, there hasn't been a lot. >> karen just brought up the media and what the president has been saying about the media. jeffrey lord, a few moments ago we heard from former president george w. bush. he don't hear from him a lot unless he's talking about his painting. but this morning he was talking about the president and the media. listen to what he said. >> i consider the media to be indispensable to democracy, that we need an independent media to hold people like me to account. power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive, and it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere. >> he also said, jeffrey lord, it's hard for the united states to go to other countries of the world and say, hey, you should have a free press when the leader of our country is cracking down on the press here. pretty remarkable comments from the former president.
6:20 am
>> i don't think -- and i love president bush. i don't think what he's saying and what president trump are saying is all that different. >> hang on. president george w. bush did not call the media the enemy of the people. that's something president trump has said. >> first of all, john, let me stop you right there. neither did president trump. he said the fake news media. he said the fake news media. there's a considerable difference there. number two, what president bush is saying, i think the mistake made in the bush administration and karl rove admits it, is that they didn't answer the press, that they just took all their blows from the press and were silent on the deal. this, therefore, led the american media to get the impression out there that bush lied on iraq and all that sort of thing, which was not true. so you really do have to get out there and be very aggressive and present your case and challenge
6:21 am
the media which is what president trump is doing. again, he said in that tweet, the fake news media, not the media, is the enemy of the american people. there's a considerable difference there. >> he pointed his finger at us, "the new york times" and others. john and i are fascinated by the "wall street journal" poll, lowest historical approval rating this early in their presidency. the numbers paint a different picture about how people feel about how things are going, their feelings about the president have actually gone up. let's show that. also, they feel like this is an administration that better understands what it's like to be them, the average american person. 40% said the nation is headed in the right direction. that's up from 33% in december. so they might not like the man, but they like what's happening increasingly. >> and i don't know given the fact that it's still a numeric
6:22 am
minority they they can say they overwhelming overwhelmingly. there's a segment of society in america that voted to support donald trump. that segment is probably increasingly more happy. he's still spewing the very divisive rhetoric he did on the campaign trail. karen mentioned earlier that people are expecting for donald trump to sound more presidential in this forthcoming speech, to address real issues. we know he hasn't demonstrated a capacity to do that. he still sounds like he's campaigning, he still won the electoral college. we hope he'll have details as some type of replacement strategy. he's demonstrated time and time again he does not have the ability to show himself as presidential. so it's interesting to see what he does. i think again, going back to jeffrey's most immediate last point, him calling referring to
6:23 am
fake news is highly problematic and it demonstrates there's a lot of likeness between george w. bush's position, at least now and donald trump's position now. >> so karen, on the subject of the media, there was remarkable reporting over the weekend about sean spicer and how he is trying to crack down on leaks inside the white house. he called a meeting inside the white house apparently and asked his aides and the press people there to put their cell phones in a basket. have you ever heard of anything like that, karen? >> actually putting cell phones in the basket is a procedure that goes at least as far back as president obama and maybe earlier in that at white house meetings people are ex-mepected drop their cell phones primarily because they don't want people doing this all the way through meetings. but they do need to -- from their purposes, crack down on leaks. the problem is there's an entire sort of federal
6:24 am
bureaucracy/establishment out there that they cannot control that way. the establishment, the bureaucracy was here before they got here and it's going to be here after they leave. >> do you read it as paranoid, jeffrey lord. they were going through their phones, according to politico's reporting, and looking for the secret messaging apps that john berman uses all the time so no one can encrypt it. is it taking it a little bit too far? >> i do think they have to do something. what bothers me more than white house leaks, if you will, are leaks from classified information by people who handle classified information. that is literally a federal crime. that's the real problem, and i think they need to clamp down on that and get to the bottom of it asap. >> angela, policy time here. the president is going to outline his budget maybe in a few minutes. we're getting a sense he wants to increase military spending, do some cuts in domestic
6:25 am
programs. we're told not going to touch medicare and social security entitlements. as a democrat, are you hecheeri that decision? >> i think that's smart. i think he doesn't have a choice. there are portions of this country where people are suffering and cutting entitlement spending would be a disaster for so many families, some of our elderly, some of these families taking care of parents. that would be a disaster, to use a donald trump term that he likes. i think it's a smart move. of course, i applaud anything he does that's smart. i'm anxious to see what he's going to do with obamacare. >> karen, it's interesting that increasingly you see this trump platform. it was trade, now entitlements, looking a lot like democratic platform. now as the new head of the dnc trying to figure out what they stand for. does this make it a tougher road to hoe for the democrats? >> this was a very, very specific campaign promise that donald trump made, that he was
6:26 am
not going to touch the safety net programs. so paul ryan in particular has been a leading voice that these things are headed for bankruptcy. they're taking down the federal budget with them. that's really more a conversation i think that's going on within the republican party at this point. >> paul ria ryan probably not lg this one. >> they've got to get their ducks in a row as soon as this week. it will be interesting to see if they line up. >> karen, angela, jeffrey, thank you all very much. any minute now president trump sits down with the nation's governors at the white house. this could be the first time we hear from him specifics about his budget plans, specifics that will increalude a big increase military spending. and the story of the morning, the best picture or best plot twist at the academy awards. how about both, if you were not

6:53 am
fix what was done to this cemetery on saturday night. in fact a rabbi who came here on sunday after the vandalism here at this cemetery went on facebook and talked about how he saw muslims come to the cemetery on sunday and helped fix some of these head stones that had been damaged or destroyed. also one other thing to think about, investigators are being careful in calling it a hate crime, they're not yet calling it a hate crime or an at this semitic act, especially since two weeks ago two miles from here at a catholic cemetery something similar happened to a dozen or so head stones, so officials are being very careful in calling it a hate crime or anti-semitic act. >> horrible to see regardless. alison, thank you for the reporting, let us know when you have more. the suspect in kansas in the shooting of two indian immigrants is in court today.

chest. just yesterday there was a huge rally of support by members of the community, about a thousand showing up. a lot of folks are still shaking their heads about exactly what happened here. we'll learn more today in court about what happened in that hour preceding that shooting which still has so many people shaking their heads. >> ryan young for us in kansas, we'll get more as it develops, thank you so much, ryan. the next hour of "newsroom" continues after a break. i realize that ah, that $100k is not exactly a fortune.
