barring adult film star stormy daniels from speaking about her alleged affair with mr. trump. the order obtained by cbs news was issued last week in private arbitration in california. a lawyer for daniels called the order improper and hidden from public view. paula reid is at the white house. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. now, according to this restraining order, daniels is bound by the terms of an october 2016 nondisclosure agreement that she signed which bars her from discussing any details about her relationship with the president. in exchange for her silence, she was paid $130,000 by president trump's lawyer. she also agreed to pay $1 million every time she violates that agreement. on tuesday, she filed a lawsuit claiming that nondisclosure isn't valid because president trump didn't sign it. details about this new secret restraining order only came to light yesterday after the white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders said the president denies all these allegations but then suggested
7:18 am
he had already won the overall dispute with daniels in arbitration, prompting reporters to ask, wait what arbitration? now, daniels' attorney says the president can't possibly win something if he's not a party. he notes that the president's name doesn't appear on the restraining order and the president's representatives claim the president had no knowledge of that original nondisclosure agreement. daniel's attorney also takes issue with the fact he wasn't allowed to be president when that restraining order was issued to argue his client's side, norah. >> paula, give us some perspective. where do we think this is going to end up? >> the first question is whether or not that original nondisclosure agreement is valid if the president didn't sign it. if it is valid, then that restraining order is valid too because under the terms of that original agreement, she agreed to arbitration, possibly without notice, if there were any disputes. there's also questions even if the courts find that the original agreement was valid. the president's lawyer may have invalidated it by speaking about it publicly.
7:19 am
>> all right. to be continued. paula, thank you. >> yes. >> to be continued for sure. that press conference was very interesting yesterday. there was -- the white house press pool was clearly skeptical and sarah huckabee sanders was not having it. >> yesterday, we were talking about her lawsuit but it was the restraining order that kicked all this off. >> it's very, very murky. british police say a forrer russian spy who is in critical condition was poisoned with a nerve agent. as new details of the risky

a winter storm warning is up in northern new england where more snow is falling after a second nor'easter. the storm brought up to two feet of snow to parts of new jersey, new york, massachusetts, connecticut, and vermont. there were times when two to four inches of snow fell per hour. >> the storm caused more than 500 crashes in new jersey where state police helped nearly 1,000 drivers, more than 900,000 homes and businesses are still without power along the east coast. wet and heavy snow brought down power lines like this one as you see it just went up in flames. some utility crews in new jersey have worked 16 hour shifts since monday. so far there's no timeline for when all the power will be restored. we appreciate people working 16 hour shifts when you don't have power. >> and that wet, heavy snow. >> right. president trump is expected to sign his new tariff plan as soon as today. he's calling for a 25% tariff on imported steel and 10% for aluminum. more than 100 congressional republicans oppose the plan.
8:03 am
nebraska senator ben sasse is one of those against the plan calling the tariffs a massive tax increase on american families. and he says you would expect a policy this bad from a leftist administration. he joins us now from capitol hill for an interview you'll only see on "cbs this morning." good morning. >> good morning, john. >> them's fightin' words. what are you going to do other than fight? is there anything you can do to get in the way of what the president is treasonous ying to? >> for decades the congress has punted lots of its responsibilities and authorities to the executive branch and regardless of whether you're a republican or democrat that's a bad idea for public deliberation. we don't have very clear understanding in the country about what's happening in our economy. these tariffs are a terrible idea, but they're not just a terrible idea this week or this month, but they're a terrible idea because it doesn't make sense of where we are in economic history. tariffs always hurt us. ultimately nobody ever wins a
8:04 am
trade war. both sides lose a trade war. trade is indisputably good for america, it's good for customers on both sides of every trading relationship and all of our trade deals have been good for america in terms of job creation and we need to do a better job of explaining what happens when there's more trade. we need more trade and america wins. >> how do you explain a trade deficit of nearly a billion dollars? $800 million. president trump tweeting yesterday that the u.s. has lost 55,000 factories, 6,000 manufacturing jobs, and has this huge trade deficit? isn't it time for there to be something done about this? >> yeah. so let's back up. a lot of time trade deficits on a bilateral basis are misunderstood. i have a trade deficit with the grocery store. they supply a bunch of good stuff i want and i give them my money and that circulates back into the economy. here's what happens when you have more trade. when you have more trade it means american families are
8:05 am
buying more high quality or low cost or usually both stuff from some trading partner on the other side of a border. what happens in the u.s. is when there's more trade we have more export markets. nebraska where i live is the most productive farmland in the history of the world. we feed the world and our economy is fundamentally dependent upon the fact that we produce better and higher quality stuff than any other farmers in the world. we need more markets to sell it to than just the u.s. let's look at steel in particular. when you raise tariffs on steel, 320 million american consumers lose. everyone who went to the store last night buying something for their kids or household they need, there were metal products in it. when you have tariffs you raise prices on steel and all 320 million american consumers lose. at the level of production before you get to retaliation, let's be clear, if the president goes through with this, it will kill american jobs. there will be retaliation and specific american families and producers will lose.
8:06 am
even before you get to retaliation, if you just look at steel, this plan will kill steel jobs in america. why? how could that be? sounds like you would be doing this because you're trying to help steel workers. there are 140,000 production steel mill workers in america. there are more than 5 million factory workers in america that work at factories that use steel as a primary input. when you raise the price of steel, those factory workers are going to lose jobs. they're going to be some of those 140,000 steel production workers that will benefit. there will be lots more of the 5 million steel workers that use them as imports that will suffer. we need to start telling the american people the truth about what's happening in big factory jobs. the analog is agriculture. in 1900 more than 40% of americans worked on farms. 100 years later less than 2% and we produce more stuff. that's what's happening in industrial factory jobs right now. we have rapidly declining people working in industrial jobs but
8:07 am
more total output. >> senator, it's very clear to all of us listening how much you love your state and against this proposal but back to john's original question what can you do? what are you going to do about it? >> yeah. i'm going to talk to you and talk to the american people because the president has the power to do this under current law. it's stupid law. >> who is he listening to? >> so there's a big fight happening inside the administration right now because most senior people in the white house know that this is a really dumb policy and the american people, the forgotten workers of even the rust belt states they don't want to be drafted and be casualties in a stupid trade war. there are a bunch of people inside the administration trying to talk the president out of this. you can see the mixed messages coming out of the administration when we say we're doing this to target china and you know who loses most, canada. one of our fundamental partners. they're our main -- the main exporter of steel to the u.s. >> you talk about the organization inside the white house. you used to repair organizations for a living.
8:08 am
assess the organization inside the white house right now? >> so it's a tough place to work. there are a lot of really good people there. the president does deserve credit for a lot of good people he's put in this administration. somebody like don mcgahn helping him pick judges doing a phenomenal job. >> a lot of them are leaving. >> it's a chaotic place, gayle. i'm not going to argue about that. ultimately this white house is a reflection of this president and he said he likes chaos. i don't think that's really a great way to run an organization but i save most of my counsel on that topic for the president in private. we have a good relationship. we wrestle a lot in private before i'm out here criticizing him in public. but in the trade war that we're talking about today it's going to hurt americans, it's going to hurt american families and cost us jobs and i hope the president walks back from the brink. >> okay. we'll see if he's listening to you. thank you very much for taking your time this morning. we appreciate that. >> the new tax plan signed by president trump means larger paychecks for many americans this year.

why 2018 may be a good year. >> we should lower the lights. >> exactly. putting more than money. >> and i is a good year to start building your personal savings. the tax plan is in effect and americans at most income levels will eventually get relief. the nonpartisan tax policy center estimates taxes on the average household will be cut by about $1600. for middle-income earners making between 49,000 and $86,000 a year that translates into an extra $900. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> according to most, do most realize they will get a tax break and what to do with it? >> unfortunately no. most people don't see it. i think it has to do with the number you said about the $900 over the course of a year because when you break that down you get paid every other week or every week, it may be, you know, maybe $75 a month and that's a weird amount. it's enough you could do
8:12 am
something great with it but a small enough amount if you don't figure out how top capture the money you might spend it. the first thing that every certified financial planner will tell people is, set up some system to automatically capture that money. go check the pay stub, check your bank account if you got direct deposit, set something up and get the money out of your hands before you spend it and put it in savings bump up your retirement savings. put more money down on the credit card debt and do something and make it automatic. >> tax day is approaching, april 15th. a lot of people are thinking about tax returns and fingers and eyes and crossed and legs and toes you're getting money back. what's the fattest way to get the money? >> the irs says about 70% will get a refund. >> 70%. >> 70%. last year the average refund was amazing, almost $2900. so the best way to get that money back quickly is to file electronically and early. we talked about this in years past we want you to file early
8:13 am

"the hill" reports hope hicks told house committee members she was hacked. cbs confirms one of her e-mail accounts had been compromised. hicks can no longer access an e-mail account used for president trump's campaign and a personal account. she was the closest person to the president. she resigned her white house job last week. u.s. news and world report says breast cancer screening guidelines can miss minorities. it's based on mainly scientific data from white women. that i recommend breast cancer screening for women at age 50 for those at average risk. but they found the average age is 59. for some minorities, it's as young as 46. some groups of nonwhite women
8:32 am
should begin breast cancer screening earlier. a reminder there should be fairness in testings and studies. >> you're absolutely right about that. "usa today" reports peyton manning sold his stake in papa john's stores two days before they dropped papa john's pizza. things that make you say ooh. the nfl and papa john's deal ended after the pizza company's founder criticized the league last year about its handling of the anthem protest by players. manning was not available for comment. high heels are the worst and women are ditching them. sales of the shoe drop 12% last year. women's sneaker sales rose 37%. this happened despite discounted prices and increases in high heel inventories. retail experts say because work and social settings have become more casual. recent surveys also report women

are willing to pay more for comfortable shoes and we're all for a nice pair of sneakers. i bought a new pair recently. >> yes. we're going to put it in the magazine too. >> got to get the magazine to see it. "the new york times" reports rome's subway project keeps digging up archaeological products. it revealed the second military barracks. last week archaeologists presented remains of a highly decorated ancient house. they believe it may have belonged to a military post commander. last year seth doane reported on it. >> you can always find something in rome. and our boston station wbz reports on a new study indicating dogs respond better to a high-pitched voice. researchers put dogs in rooms with people saying different phrases. using two different types of speech. they found dogs prefer to spend
8:34 am
time with people who use a high-pitched emotional voice. it's kind of like speaking to your dog the way you do to a baby, but don't mistake the two. >> come here you little sweetie pie, don't you look so cute. >> i just want to be in your lap, norah. >> you know you two are not alone. there are people in the room. all right. it is international day of women. we should note the international human rights activist malala you sa phi. she was attacked by the taliban in 2012. in an upcoming episode she says the attacker was a young boy. she notes forgiveness. you can only see it on "cbs this morning." >> the best you can do is give forgiveness. the people who targeted me and attacked me, i forget them, i
8:35 am
forgive them because that's the best i can do. the person who attacked me was a young boy, same age as me. he thought he was doing the right thing, targeting a person who was evil and doing a good job. >> you can see more of malala's interview on "my next guest needs know introduction" tomorrow on netflix. we live in a time of divisive rhetoric. now a military leader and college professor offer advice on challenges of leadership. general martin dempsey spent 41 years in the military. he ended his career as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. the highest ranking officer to the president. on the other hand ori brafman majored in peace studies. he took on mcdonald's in the animal rights movement and now he teaches at the university.
8:36 am
>> it's called "radical inclusion: what the post-911 should have taught us about leadership." they call on loerp on where we can diverge, not where we diverge to emphasize inclusion. general dempsey and ori brakman, welcome to the table. >> thank you. >> you two are quite the duo. >> you think? >> yes. i want to learn about your new leadership when your were 24 years old. here you are the 2 years old, you get your first real test of lep managing this group of 45. what happened? because they're very different people. >> you graduate from west point where they do a terrific job of getting you ready and you go into the regular army, and the army i entered in '74, post-vietnam had huge racial issues and drug issues and we were finding ways to put it
8:37 am
apart rather than bring it together and in that environmental is when i first started thinking about a leader's most important responsibility, which is to develop in the team a sense of belonging, and that's why we wrote the book. we think it's even harder to lead today. >> and ori you write -- what is radical inclusion? >> inclusion today is more important than ever before. it's not just nice to vchlt it's a strategic imperative, and the way that we tackled it, it's about winning or losing. if you want to win, you need to be inclusive. you need to create a sense of belonging with everyone within your organization and mean broadly on a global scale. >> you say nonadmission. it's also about participation and that's what people don't get. >> absolutely. >> yeah. >> and the reason we say it's harder today is the amount of information that kind of washes
8:38 am
over leaders and their followers, some of which is hard to discern, you know, you've heard the frarksz fak news and false facts. it can be difficult to understand how to navigate that space as an individual and then a leader has to help. and so we think developing trust is important and you can really only develop trust if you include people in every aspect of the organization. >> we're having a real time national vision of leadership in the president. so evaluate him in the terms of the book. >> i will not evaluate the president in terms of the book. >> why not? >> because military officers both active and retirement are charged as part of our professional ethos not to be political. i will say that the book -- no leader is absent all of those attributes. there's six principles, three ing stimgts, and the imperative of inclusion. i think others will judge whether this president or any other president follow those
8:39 am
principles and instincts. >> general, let me ask you this. north korea juns this week signals openness to denuclearization. what's your reaction to those developments? >> my reaction to developments in the security challengeses we face whether it's north korea, china, russia, iran, you know, this radical stretch, that's why we need inclusion. you can't do five things at once by yourself. north korea exists in a sphere of influence in part of which is ours, japan's, south korea's, australia. we have allies and partners outside of that region. these are the same fellows -- not the same ones but the same country that negotiated the shape of the table in the '50s for three months. we're getting ready to have negotiations where they will negotiate something illegal, which is a nuclear capability, and we'll be negotiating
8:40 am
something legal which is on peninsula. the question we have to ask ourselves is what will we be asked to potentially give up? is it worth it? is it in our natural instinct to do so? this is going to be a long process and we don't want our own readiness to degrade in the interim. >> but i think you would agree in a country we're not our most inclusive that we've been in history, and i think that needs to change. >> who's not inclusive? the government? the -- >> i live in california. you can get my pollties. at the same time some of my closest friends started the tea party. on both sides people are feeling so marginalize and so unheard. one of the biggest principle wes have in the book is the concept of listen, amplify, and include. if you can do that -- >> that sounds inefficient to people who want to get things done. it sounds like long meetings,
8:41 am
lots of people talking, and nothing getting done at the end. >> lots of learning. >> and there's bias for action in this environment. >> it's a balance. by the way, these kids who are becoming active in florida and they're demanding that they be heard, that they amplify good ideas, we think that tries. >> it's interesting you two got together. you're vegan. you're not. >> carnivore. >> how are these two going to make it work, but you do. it's inclusive. >> you are the example of inclues sniev so many good lessons in this book. thank you for beginning that discussion. we all need that. general martin dempsey and o ori brakman, thank you. nashville predators' star p.k. see how his program lets kids hang out with police
