WITHOUT EVEN LEAVING HIS MARA LAGO ESTATE. NOT A BAD WAY TO SPEND THANKSGIVING WEEK. WE ARE TOLD DR. BEN CARSON WAS GOING TO TAKE A FEW DAYS OVER THE THANKSGIVING DAY HOLIDAY TO THINK ABOUT THE HUD POSITION, BUT HE DID WRITE ON FACEBOOK EARLIER HE WOULD CLEAN UP THE INNER CITIES. AND THERE’S THE REPORT THAT HE HAS ACCEPTED THE OFFER TO GO AND SERVE IN THE CABINET. OTHER RECENT NOMINATIONS JUST A FEW HOURS OLD, BETSY DEVOS IS A BILLIONAIRE PHILANTHROPIST WHO WILL HELP BRING SCHOOL CHOICE TO ALL FAMILIES AND WHO JEB BUSH, TRUMP’S BITTER RIVAL, SAID WAS A GOOD SELECTION. THERE’S ALSO EARLIER TODAY GOVERNOR NIKKI HALEY SELECTED AS U.N. SECRETARY. SHE SAID WHEN THE PRESIDENT-ELECT ASKS YNAL LEVEL ABOUT HIS CHARACTER, INTEGRITY, HIS HONOR. WHEN YOU DO THAT, THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY THAT I THINK MITT ROMNEY CAN BE CONSIDERED FOR A POST LIKE THAT, AND THAT IS THAT HE GOES TO A MICROPHONE IN A PUBLIC PLACE AND REPUDIATES EVERYTHING HE SAID IN THAT FAMOUS SALT LAKE CITY SPEECH. AND EVERYTHING HE SAID AFTER THAT.>>Reporter: GOVERNOR HUCKABEE ALSO SAID HE WAS OFFERED A CABINET POSITION BY THE PRESIDENT-ELECT BUT TURNED IT DOWN. NEIL?>>ALL RIGHT, PETER DOOCY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE HAVE SCOTT BROWN JOINING US, A FORMER MASSACHUSETTS SENATOR ALSO UNDER CABINET CONSIDERATION RIGHT NOW. SENATOR, VERY GOOD TO HAVE YOU.>>GOOD TO BE ON, NEIL, HOW ARE YOU?>>I’M FINE, SIR. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF WHAT LOOKS LIKE BEN CARSON GOING OVER TO HUD?>>LISTEN, I’M PERSONALLY VERY INVESTED IN HOUSING ISSUES AND I’M ON TWO HOUSING BOARDS. AND THERE’S NO BETTER WAY TO HELP IMPROVE THE INNER CITIES, NOT ONLY WITH GREAT HOUSES AND HOMES, BUT OBVIOUSLY GOOD JOBS. AND THAT’S WHAT ONE OF THE CORNERSTONES OF DR. CARSON’S CAMPAIGN WAS TO CREATE JOBS AND COMMUNITY THE INNER CITIES. SO I THINK IT’S A GREAT, GREAT CHOICE. >>WHAT ABOUT YOU? YOU HAVE COME UP AND YOUR NAME HAS COME UP REPEATEDLY FOR A NUMBER OF POSITIONS, VETERAN AFFAIRS MOST LATELY, WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>I WAS TOLD AFTER WE HAD OUR GOOD MEETING THAT I WOULD HEAR SOMETIME AFTER THANKSGIVING. NOW, I’M NOT SURE IF HE EATS AT 12:00 AND I HEAR AT 1:00 HERE ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY OR MONDAY. BUT AS YOU KNOW, YOU CAN SEE HE’S STILL WORKING. I THOUGHT NIKKI HALEY’S CHOICE WAS FANTASTIC AND THE MITT ROMNEY CHOICE IS BRILLIANT. IT REESTABLISHES CREDIBILITY WITH OUR ALLIES, FEAR WITH OUR FOES, AND BRIDGES THAT GAP. AND JUST TO COMMENT, I KNOW MAYBE I’M GOING A LITTLE AHEAD ON WHAT GOVERNOR HUCKABEE SAID, WHO I LOVE, BUT THEY PROBABLY DID TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE CAMPAIGN. I’M ALMOST SURE OF IT. AND THEY PROBABLY SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT? WE’RE TWO TYPE-A BILLIONAIRES AND BATTLE PRETTY HEAVILY. THAT’S WHAT I LIKE ABOUT WHAT DONALD TRUMP IS DOING. HE’S ACTUALLY BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER, GOING FOR THE BEST PERSON REGARDLESS. AND THAT’S WHAT OUR COUNTRY NEEDS RIGHT NOW. >>WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HUCKABEE ALSO SAYING THAT ROMNEY SHOULD APOLOGIZE, BECAUSE YOU CAN MAKE THE ARGUMENT DONALD TRUMP SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO HIM. THEY BOTH SAID AWFUL THINGS ABOUT EACH OTHER. BYGONES BE BYGONES? LET IT GO?>>I THINK IT IS OBVIOUSLY WITH HIM AND MITT ROMNEY MEETING AND THE POTENTIAL OF HIM OFFERING A POSITION, I THINK THAT IS AN APOLOGY ACCEPTED AND OFFERED OR THEY WOULDN’T BE TALKING. THE FACT THAT MITT ROMNEY COULD BE SECRETARY OF STATE WOULD BE BETTER THAN JOHN KERRY. IT REALLY MAKES ME VERY EXCITED.>>IT IS INTERESTING THAT IT CONTINUES A TRADITION OF FORMER RIVALS OR THOSE WHO RUN FOR PRESIDENT BEFORE, GOING FOR SECRETARY OF STATE, HILLARY CLINTON AND JOHN KERRY AND ON WE GO. BUT HAVING SAID THAT, THE MAKEUP OF HIS CABINET STILL EARLY, SENATOR, AS YOU HAVE SOME WHO ARE SUPPORTING THE PRESIDENT-ELECT DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND OTHERS WHO WERE NOTICEABLY SILENT OR QUITE THE OPPOSITE. SO SOME HAVE LIKENED IT TO A POTENTIAL TEAM OF RIVALS. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT?>>I THINK HE’S GOING TO BET THE BEST PEOPLE FOR THE JOB PERIOD. AND IT’S GOOD TO HAVE TENSION AND DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW IN DISAGREEMENTS. YOU DON’T WANT EVERYONE — ONE OF THE REASONS DONALD TRUMP, THE PRESIDENT-ELECT LIKES ME IS I’M PRETTY DIRECT. I’LL TELL HIM EXACTLY WHAT I THINK IS GOING RIGHT AND WRONG. AND HE DOESN’T WANT YES PEOPLE UP THERE. HE WANTS PEOPLE TO TELL HIM, SIR, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, YOU’RE WRONG OR RIGHT AND THE ABILITY TO WORK IT THROUGH. AND I THINK THAT IS CRITICAL. BECAUSE IN THIS PRESENT ADMINISTRATION, THERE’S NO ONE THAT TELLS THE PRESIDENT THAT HE’S WRONG. IF THAT WAS THE CASE, WE WOULDN’T HAVE DONE WHAT WE DMID SYRIA. WE WOULDN’T HAVE DONE WHAT WE DID WITH RUSSIA AND RESET AND THE LIKE. SO I THINK IT’S A GOOD THING. >>SCOTT BROWN, GREAT SEEING YOU. HAPPY THANKSGIVING, FRIEND. >>NEIL, ONE BIT OF ADVICE FOR YOU, MY MAN. >>YES.>>LAY OFF THE GRAVY, OKAY. >>I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO SAY THAT.>>LAY OFF THE GRAVY AND POTATOES. >>YOU WORK WITH MY CARDIOLOGIST.>>THANK YOU FOR MAKING YOUR FINAL APPEARANCE ON THIS SHOW. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU HERE. IS HE TOUGH OR WHAT?>>>ALL RIGHT. HE WON’T SEE ME — IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU’RE TRAVELING, MILLIONS OF YOU, 49 MILLION WE’RE TOLD, AND THE TRAFFIC IS GOING TO BUILD UP. AND DEPENDING ON THE AIRPORT, IT’S GOING TO REALLY BUILD UP. WE’RE STILL WAITING FOR THAT TO HAPPEN BECAUSE I THINK THIS WAS JUST SORT OF SPREAD OUT THROUGH THE WEEK HERE. AND THAT THE LEAST OF IT IS HAG RIGHT NOW. WHO KNOWS. BUT ADAM SHAPIRO IS AT NEWARK LIBERTY AIRPORT. WHAT ARE YOU SEEING THERE, ADAM?>>Reporter: WELL, IT’S ABOUT AS EXCITING AS A GLASS OF METAMUCIL. IT’S BEEN EMPTY ALL DAY. I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, THIS IS UP UNITED AT NEWARK LIBERTY INTERNATIONAL. AND THIS IS THE MAJOR CARRIER AT THIS AIRPORT. IT’S A HUB. I CAN TELL YOU AS WELL, THEY DON’T WANT US TO SHOW ON CAMERA THE TSA SCREENING AREA, THE PORT AUTHORITY IS FORBIDDING THAT, BUT THE LINE IS VERY SHORT. PEOPLE ARE MOVING THROUGH THAT LINE IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES. IT’S ACTUALLY MORE LIKE TEN MINUTES IF YOU’RE STANDING IN LINE. NOW IT’S STARTING TO PICK UP A BIT, BUT THEY HAVE BEEN TELLING US, NEIL, THAT THE PEAK WAS COMING, THEY SAID AT 12:30. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN AT 12:30 OR 2:30. NOW THEY ARE TELLING US AS PEOPLE GET OFF WORK THEY ARE HEADING TO THE AIRPORT. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS, YOU WOULD EXPECT HUGE CROWDS AND THERE ARE CROWDS AT OTHER AIRPORTS, O’HARE AND ATLANTA, HARTSFIELD/JACKSON, BUT HERE AT ONE OF THE BUSIEST AIRPORTS IN THE COUNTRY, WITHIN THE TOP TEN, NEWARK, KIND OF QUIET RIGHT NOW. 49 MILLION PEOPLE WILL TRAVEL BY PLANE, BUS, TRAIN AND CAR. 2.8 MILLION BY PLANE JUST ON SUNDAY ALONE. BUT RIGHT NOW, ALL CLEAR. AND THAT IS A GOOD THING, RIGHT? BACK TO YOU.>>IT IS IF YOU CAN WORK WITH ME NEXT TIME, ADAM. WE HAVE BEEN PLAYING OFF THE BEDLAM AT AIRPORTS THERE WITH THE CROWDS. IT’S ALL RIGHT. WE’LL TALK LATER FOR ANOTHER UPDATE. SERIOUSLY, ADAM, THANK YOU. HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING.>>Reporter: YOU GOT IT.>>>OUR METEOROLOGIST SAYS DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE, IT COULD BE A LONGER TRIP. WEATHER IS PLAYING A ROLE HERE. WHAT DO YOU SEE, RICK?>>A LITTLE BIT. WICKED WEATHER, HORRIBLE, ALL RIGHT, THERE’S SOME WEATHER OUT THERE. NOT REALLY ALL THAT BAD. THIS STORM RIGHT HERE JUST SOME SHOWERS ACROSS PARTS OF THE OHIO VALLEY. A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW, BUT IT’S WAY OFF TOWARDS THE NORTH. THE NORTHERN PARTS OF MINNESOTA IN TOWARDS THE ARROWHEAD OF WISCONSIN, THE U.P. OF MICHIGAN. THAT’S ONE STORM. THE BIGGER STORM IS MOVING IN ACROSS AREAS TO THE WEST AND IT WILL BRING A LOT OF RAIN AND REALLY SIGNIFICANT MOUNTAIN SNOW TO THE NEXT NUMBER OF DAYS. I THINK WE’LL SEE THE MOISTURE MAKE ITS WAY BY THE END OF THE WEEKEND INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. AND THIS IS GREAT NEWS. ANY PRECIPITATION WE CAN GET OUT WEST AT THE BEGINNING HERE OF THE RAINY SEASON THERE IS REALLY GOOD NEWS. AS FAR AS THE AIRPORTS GO, WE HAVE SOME MILD DELAYS IN MINNEAPOLIS. WE HAVE HAD SOME DELAYS AROUND O’HARE. AND THEN IN TOWARDS NEWARK THERE ARE SOME DELAYS BECAUSE OF WIND. WE HAVE SEEN DELAYS AT LAX ALSO. MOST OF THAT IS JUST DUE TO VOLUME AS WELL AS SOME CONSTRUCTION GOING ON. THIS SYSTEM THOUGH THAT WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING MOVE ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES IS GOING TO PULL OFF TO THE NORTH. THE CENTER OF LOW PRESSURE. THAT MEANS MOST OF THE MOISTURE DOESN’T MAKE IT TO THE SOUTHEAST WHERE WE DESPERATELY NEED IT UNFORTUNATELY, BUT THAT ALSO MEANS WE’RE GOING TO SEE IT WEAKEN A LITTLE BIT BY THE TIME IT MOVES OFF TO THE EAST. SO FOR THE REMAINDER OF TODAY, WE’LL SEE A FEW MORE DELAYS AROUND CHICAGO. A COOL DAY, BUT WE’RE LOOKING GOOD TO THE EAST. WE’RE LOOKING GOOD IN THE CENTRAL PART OF THE COUNTRY. THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST LATER TODAY, A FEW DELAYS. AND THE SAME GOES FOR TOMORROW. IF YOU ARE FLYING TOMORROW OR ON THE ROADS, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE COASTAL AREAS OF THE WEST ARE GOING TO BE PROBLEMATIC. THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IS LOOKING PRETTY GOOD. A FEW SHOWERS IN ACROSS THE EAST LIGHTER THAN TODAY.>>>IN THE MEANTIME, WE’LL BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT WE HAVE ANOTHER RECORD IN THE DOW GETTING OLD, I KNOW. AND THIS IS NOTEWORTHY AS WELL. A 30-YEAR FIXED RATE MORTGAGE WITH THE BACKUP OF INTEREST RATES WE HAVE BEEN SEEING ON THE PROSPECTS FOR AN IMPROVING ECONOMY AT 4.03%. NOW A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE APPROACH IT AND SAY, NEIL, I CAN’T BELIEVE I MISSED THE BOAT. THE RATES ARE SO HIGH. I WANT TO SHOW YOU KIDS SOMETHING. MY WIFE AND I GOT OUR FIRST MORTGAGE, THAT’S ABOUT WHAT WE WERE PAYING PER DAY. SEE THAT REALLY HIGH POINT THERE. THAT WAS ABOUT THE POINT AT WHICH MY WIFE AND I TOOK OUT OUR FIRST MORTGAGE. AND IT’S JUST A REMINDER THAT EVEN THOUGH RATES HAVE BEEN TICKING UP, THEY ARE TO NOTHING LIKE THEY WERE. SO ALL OF YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE LOSING IT OVER THIS, I WANT YOU TO CALM DOWN. AND I WANT YOU TO REALIZE YOU STILL GOT ANOTHER, I DON’T KNOW, 10 TO 12 POINTS TO GET BACK TO WHERE WE WERE WHEN WE STARTED OUT. JUST REMEMBER THAT.>>>IN THE MEANTIME, WE HAVE THE PRESIDENT-ELECT GOING TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” AND “THE NEW YORK TIMES” HAS IT OUT WITH THE PRESIDENT-ELECT. MAKES YOU WONDER WHY HE WENT THERE. WE HAVE T>>>PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WENT TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES” AND GOT A RESPONSE LIKE THIS FROM AN OP-ED. TION?D, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS>>WELL, ALL PEOPLE IN PUBLIC LIFE WANT TO BE LIKED AND RESPECTED, BUT ONE PERSON CLOSE TO THE PRESIDENT-ELECT TOLD ME TODAY THAT TRUMP DID GO TO THE TIMES AND THE DELEGATION AT TRUMP TOWER AS A SIGN OF RESPECT. THIS IS HIS HOMETOWN PAPER THAT HE READS EVERY DAY. HE GREW UP READING IT AND IT’S DELIVERED TO THE GOLD-PLATED APARTMENT. HE WANTS “THE TIMES” TO APPROVE OF HIM.>>DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT-ELECT EXPECTED ANY DIFFERENT KIND OF COVERAGE OR ANY LESS SNIDE COVERAGE OR THAT THIS IS JUST IN KEEPING WITH HIS THEME, I’M WATCHING ALL OF YOU IN THE MEDIA?>>WELL, I THINK THE MESSAGE HERE AND IN THE MEDIA WITH THE TV ANCHORS AND EXECUTIVES IS, I WON, YOU’VE GOT IT ALL WRONG, NOW LET’S SEE IF WE CAN WORK TOGETHER. BUT KIND OF TRYING TO DELIVER A STRONG MESSAGE THAT IF “THE TIMES,” WHO TRUMP SAYS HAS BEEN ROUGH ON HIM, CONTINUES TO BE ROUGH ON HIM AS PRESIDENT-ELECT AND THEN PRESIDENT, YOU KNOW, HE’S NOT GOING TO BE SHY ABOUT USING TWITTER OR OTHER MEANS TO HIT BACK. SO, AT THE SAME TIME, I’VE NOTICED THIS MYSELF THAT DONALD TRUMP, IF YOU’RE A SYMPATHETIC JOURNALIST, THAT’S FINE. HE APPRECIATES THAT. BUT IF YOU’RE A VERY LIBERAL JOURNALIST AT MSNBC OR VERY CONSERVATIVE JOURNALIST AT FOX THAT WAS NEVER TRUMP, HE DOES MAKE AN EXTRA EFFORT TO WIN YOU OVER. HE FEELS LIKE IF HE USES THE TRUMP OFFENSIVE, HE CAN TURN YOU AROUND. IF IT DOESN’T WORK, HE’LL SMACK YOU.>>ALL RIGHT. WELL, I’LL DISAGREE WITH YOU IN ONE RESPECT, AND I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR HIM BECAUSE I THINK HE’S THIN-SKINNED. HE STILL BOYCOTTS THIS SHOW, WHICH IS HIS RIGHT. HE’S LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD, HAVE AT IT. AND THAT GOES BACK TO JUST HAVING MITT ROMNEY ON BACK IN THOSE DAYS WHEN HE WAS CRITICIZING HIM, EVEN THOUGH WE RAISED THE COUNTER POINTS THAT A DONALD TRUMP WOULD. HAVING SAID THAT, CAN HE GET OVER THAT? NOW, OBVIOUSLY, THERE’S A WRAP OF BEING THIN-SKINNED MAY ONLY GO SO FAR IF HE MAKES ROMNEY AS SECRETARY OF STATE. BUT MAYBE HE ISN’T WHAT HIS CRITICS HAVE SAID. WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>I DON’T DISAGREE WITH YOU ABOUT THE THIN-SKIN. TRUMP MAKES AN EFFORT TO TRY TO WIN PEOPLE OVER, BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN HE’LL REWARD THEM BY GRANTING ACCESS AND THAT SORT OF THING. LOOK, HERE’S THE THING, IF DONALD TRUMP IS PROVEN TO BE A MAGNANIMOUS WINNER WHO CAN AT LEAST SERIOUSLY CONSIDER MAKING MITT ROMNEY, WHO CALLED HIM A CONMAN AND A LOT OF BAD STUFF DURING THE CAMPAIGN AS SECRETARY OF STATE, WHO IS NOW NAMING GOVERNOR NIKKI HALEY AS U.N. AMBASSADOR DESPITE HER CREDIT SIMILAR OF HIM, CRITICIZING THE KKK AND ALL OF THAT, THEN I GUESS HE CAN HAVE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” LOOK, “THE TIMES” HAS INCENTIVE HERE, NOT TO PULL HIS PUNCHES, BUT TO HAVE A DECENT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND TRUMP KNOWS THAT. HE’S A MEDIA-SAVVY GUY. >>BUT HE KNOWS BECAUSE HE’S SHREWD THAT HE’LL MAKE ORGANIZATIONS THINK TWICE ABOUT HOW THEY’RE GOING ABOUT THAT COVERAGE. AT LEAST INITIALLY AFTER THESE MEETINGS, RIGHT?>>HE WILL, INDEED. AND THAT IS KIND OF A CARROT AND STICK APPROACH. LET THEM KNOW THEY HAVEN’T BEEN FAIR AND HE’S WATCHING, BUT AT THE SAME TIME GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF RESPECT, MAYBE YOU GET THE CLOSE UMPIRE CALLS NEXT TIME. >>THERE YOU GO. WELL PUT. HOWARD KURTZ, HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING, APPRECIATE IT. THE HOST OF THE POPULAR SHOW “MEDIA BUZZ” HOWARD KURTZ.>>>IN THE MEANTIME, THIS JUST WHERE IS THE RAGE THAT IT DOES? A POLICE OFFICER SHOT LAST NIGHT, THE FIFTH WE HAVE SEEN SINCE SUNDAY. WE GO TO DETROIT. DETROIT’S POLICE CHIEF JAMES CRAIG IS NEXT.>>>YOU’VE HEARD IT BEFORE, ANOTHER POLICE OFFICER WAS SHOT AND IS CLINGING TO LIFE. POLICE BELIEVE THEY HAVE THE GUY WHO SHOT HIM, BUT IT’S THE FIFTH OFFICER SHOT JUST SINCE SUNDAY. DETROIT’S CHIEF OF POLICE JAMES CRAIG IS WITH US NOW. CHIEF, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US?>>YOU’RE WELCOME, THANK YOU. IT’S A SOMBER DAY THE IN DETROIT. AS YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE THIRD OFFICER THAT HAS BEEN CRITICALLY WOUNDED. WE HAD TWO OFFICERS FATALLY SHOT WITHIN THE LAST 45 DAYS. SO SOME VERY TROUBLING TIMES AND CERTAINLY NOW WE HAVE AN OFFICER FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE. WE HAVE THE PERSON, WE BELIEVE, THE RIGHT PERSON CERTAINLY IN CUSTODY, BUT THIS IS TOUCHING SO MANY OF OUR OFFICERS BOTH IN DETROIT AND IN THE WAYNE STATE POLICE DEPARTMENT. IT MUST END, IT ABSOLUTELY MUST END. >>WAS HE TARGETED, CHIEF? AND WAS IT RACIAL? WHAT DO WE KNOW?>>WELL, WE’RE NOT CERTAIN HE WAS TARGETED. WE DO KNOW THAT THE SUSPECT HAD A HISTORY OF BEING NON-COOPERATIVE WITH LOCAL POLICE. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WOULD HAVE FUELLED THIS, SO WE ARE AT A PLACE NOW WHERE WE CAN SAY HE DEFINITELY WAS TARGETED. BUT IF YOU JUST LOOK AT THE SHOOTINGS ACROSS AMERICA, YOU KNOW, I TOOK A LOOK AT THE LAST WEEK, 28 INCIDENTS OF AN OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTING OR OFFICERS ATTACKED. AND WE TALK ABOUT THE NUMBER OF OFFICERS FATALLY WOUNDED, THAT ONLY GIVES JUST A SMALL PICTURE OF WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON. AND WHAT’S FUELING IT? I’LL TELL YOU, IT’S THE ANTI-POLICE RHETORIC. IT’S EMPOWERING THESE INDIVIDUALS TO FEEL THAT THEY CAN ATTACK POLICE. AND GO WITHOUT ANY TYPE OF SANCTION.>>WHAT’S INTERESTING, CHIEF, IS WHEN WE SEE INCIDENTS, FIVE IN LESS THAN A WEEK, IF ANYONE ONE OF THESE HAD INVOLVED A SHOOTING OF AN INDIVIDUAL, NOT A POLICE OFFICER, BUT BY A POLICE OFFICER, IT WOULD BE WALL-TO-WALL COVERAGE.>>IT WOULD BE WALL-TO-WALL COVERAGE. AND YES, THE MEDIA PLAYS A ROLE IN IT. AND YES, THE PROTESTERS, WE HAD A SITUATION, LIKE 30 DAYS AGO, AN OFFICER GOING OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY WAS SHOT BY A SUSPECT. CERTAINLY THERE WAS AN OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT FROM DETROITERS, BUT THERE WERE NO PROTESTS. AND I WONDER IF THE TABLES HAD TURNED, IF THE OFFICER HAD SHOT THE SUSPECT, WE WOULD STILL BE DEALING WITH ISSUES.>>YOU KNOW, CHIEF, I TALKED TO A COUPLE OF POLICEMAN HERE NOT TOO FAR AROUND THE CORNER FROM ME, YOU’RE GETTING READY FOR SECURITY AHEAD OF THANKSGIVING AND THE MACY’S DAY PARADE, AND ONE OF THEM SAID SOMETHING INTERESTING. I’VE HEARD STORIES LIKE THIS BEFORE. THAT THEYLMOST, ALMOST ARE COMPELLED TO PULL THEIR PUNCHES FOR FEAR THAT THEY WILL EITHER BE DRAGGED TO COURT OR VIDEO, WHATEVER THEY’RE DOING, EVEN IF THERE’S NOTHING BAD, WILL RUIN THEIR CAREER. AND RUIN THEM PERIOD. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT?>>YOU KNOW, IT’S TROUBLING. YOU KNOW, THE ONE INCIDENT THAT COMES TO MIND, I KNOW YOU’RE AWARE OF IT, THE FEMALE OFFICER OUT OF CHICAGO, THAT WAS BEATEN WITHIN AN INCH OF HER LIFE. AND SHE SAID, I FEARED PULLING MY GUN AND USING IT BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT THE SCRUTINY TO MYSELF, MY FAMILY, MY DEPARTMENT. I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH A GROUP OF CANINE OFFICERS TODAY WHO WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH THIS WAYNE STATE OFFICER WHO WERE REALLY GRIEVING OVER THIS SITUATION. AND THEY BROUGHT THE SAME ISSUE UP. THEY SAID, LOOK, WE DON’T WANT TO HAVE ANY ISSUE, WE DON’T WANT TO BRING EMBARRASSMENT TO THE DEPARTMENT. I SAID, LOOK, FIRST AND FOREMOST, YOU GET TO GO HOME TO YOUR FAMILIES. WE ARE A CONSTITUTIONAL POLICE DEPARTMENT AND WE EXPECT YOU TO USE YOUR FORCE REASONABLE AND NECESSARY. AND IF FACED WITH AN IMMINENT THREAT, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUPPORT DEADLY FORCE. WE SUPPORT OUR OFFICERS HERE AND I MAKE IT KNOWN, UNWAVERING SUPPORT. AND WHEN THOSE WHO ENGAGE IN CRIMINAL MISCONDUCT, WE’RE NOT AFRAID TO TAKE ACTION. BUT WE NEED THE SUPPORT. IT’S ONE THING FOR A POLICE CHIEF, WE NEED THE SUPPORT OF OUR ELECTED LEADERSHIP TO START TALKING OUT IN ONE UNIFIED VOICE THAT THESE ATTACKS ON POLICE OFFICERS ARE NOT WARRANTED, IT JUST SHOULDN’T HAPPEN. BUT I HEAR CRICKETS IN MOST CASES.>>YEAH. I’M WONDERING IF DONALD TRUMP THAT WAS PROMISED THROUGHOUT THE CAMPAIGN, WHAT CAN A PRESIDENT, ANY PRESIDENT DO BESIDES GOING BEFORE THE PULPIT AND STATING WHAT YOU JUST STATED?>>YOU HAVE TO SPEAK IN ONE UNITED VOICE, A BOLD VOICE, AND SAY THAT POLICE OFFICERS, ANY ATTACK ON A POLICE OFFICER IS AN ATTACK ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US. YOU KNOW WHAT IS INTERESTING, WE TALK ABOUT THE WAYNE STATE OFFICER, THIS IS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO SERVED AT COLLEGE COMMUNITY. AND YET THE STUDENTS MOST LIKELY WILL PROTEST ON THE FREEWAYS, THEY HAVE NOT DONE THAT HERE IN DETROIT, BUT I WONDER BECAUSE THIS GUY WAS SUCH A GOOD FRIEND AND A PERSON OF INTEGRITY IN THAT COMMUNITY, ARE THERE GOING TO BE ANY PROTESTS TO SUPPORT THIS EGREGIOUS ACT?>>I WOULDN’T HOLD MY BREATH, CHIEF. ONLY 29 YEARS OLD. WE WISH HIM WELL. CHIEF JAMES CRAIG, THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.>>>ALL RIGHT. IN THE MEANTIME, I DO WANT TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO ANOTHER FACTOR IN THE MARKETS TODAY. I DON’T WANT TO BE REMISS HERE AND PICK ONE OVER ANOTHER. THE RUSSELL 2000 INDEX OF SMALL COMPANY STOCKS ALSO IN AND OUT OF RECORDS TODAY. THAT PACE FOR SMALL COMPANY STOCKS HAS DOUBLED WHAT WE HAD SEEN IN THE DOW YEAR TO DATE. FOR EXAMPLE, THAT AVERAGE IS UP ABOUT 19%. UP .6% TODAY SINCE THE ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP ON GROWING OPTIMISM THINGS ARE LOOKING BETTER FOR THE ECONOMY. THAT’S THE WAY THE MARKETS ARE READING IT. AND IF IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WITH THE MARKETS, WAIT UNTIL YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. HE IS IN MARA LAGO AT HIS FLORIDA ESTATE FOR THANKSGIVING. COULD WE BE LOOKING AT THE NEW WINTER WHITE HOUSE? AND WHAT IF I TOLD YOU IT’S TECHNICALLY BIGGER THAN THE WHITE HOUSE? AFTER >>>ALL RIGHT. IF YOU’RE DONALD TRUMP AND CALL THIS YOUR FLORIDA HOME, WHEN YOU’RE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND REALIZE IT’S BIGGER THAN THE WHITE HOUSE.>>>ALL RIGHT. YOU SEE THAT PLACE? THAT IS DONALD TRUMP’S MARA LAGO HOME. I DON’T HAVE THE ACTUALLY NUMBER OF BEDROOMS, BUT ENOUGH TO STAFF ALL OF WASHINGTON, D.C., IF HE WANTED. THE QUESTION IS, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? IT’S WARM, IT’S BEAUTIFUL DOWN THERE, YOU CAN GET DICY IN WASHINGTON. I’M NOT JUST TALKING THE POLITICAL CLIMATE. HOW DIFFERENT IT WILL BE UNDER A TRUMP WHITE HOUSE, THAT IS IF HE EVER USES THE WHITE HOUSE. THIS PLACE IS BIGGER, DOUG, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF IT?>>YEAH, THESE PRESIDENTS, NEIL, LOVE TO GET AWAY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. WHEN GEORGE W. BUSH WAS PRESIDENT, HE HAD THIS GREAT BIG EMPTY PLANE BACK TO WASHINGTON. HE ALLOWED ONE JOURNALIST ON AND THAT WAS KENNETH T. WALSH OF “U.S. NEWS.” SO WALSH GETS WAVED UP TO THE FRONT AND GETS HIS TIME TO EXCLUSIVELY TALK TO THE NEW PRESIDENT. AND HE SITS DOWN. INSTEAD, GEORGE W. ASKS HIM A QUESTION. AND THE QUESTION IS, HOW MANY DAYS DID RONALD REAGAN SPEND ON THE RANCH? SO THESE PRESIDENTS CAN’T WAIT TO GET OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. >>IT’S LIKE A FISH BOWL, THAT’S PRETTY CLEAR. I KNOW IT’S BEAUTIFUL, VERY, VERY NICE THERE. BUT THE WORLD CAN SEE YOU. SO YOU WANT TO GET AWAY. A LOT OF PRESIDENTS GET AWAY TO CAMP DAVID OR WHAT HAVE YOU, BUT A LOT OF THEM HAVE FRIENDS WITH NICE HOMES. JOHN KENNEDY HAD HIS DAD’S PLACE BUT HE HAD A CONDO DOWN IN FLORIDA AS WELL. HOW OFTEN DO YOU THINK OF DONALD TRUMP, WHO HAS ALREADY HINTED THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO SPLIT BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK, AT LEAST HIS WIFE CERTAINLY WANTS TO BE IN NEW YORK TO LET BARON FINISH UP THE SCHOOL YEAR, WHERE HE IS SORT OF SPREADING THINGS OUT?>>HERE’S WHAT I PREDICT, NEIL, HAVING WATCHED THIS. AND I HAVE INTERVIEWED 14 OF THE CHILDREN OF THE PRESIDENTS WHO ARE LIVING TODAY. AND WHAT I PREDICT IS SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THE KENNEDYS. THE KENNEDYS DID NOT LIKE CAMP DAVID AND THEY LOVED HYANNIS PORT AND PALM BEACH. AND THEY GOT ANOTHER HOME IN VIRGINIA IN HICKORY HILL. AND THEY DID NOT LIKE CAMP DAVID AND THOUGHT IT WAS DUMPY. BUT BEFORE THEY LEFT, THEY LOVED CAMP DAVID. AND ALL OF THESE FAMILIES END UP LOVING CAMP DADE BECAUSE OF THE SECURITY AND THE PRIVACY. BARON CAN PLAY SOCCER ALL WEEKEND WITH HIS BUDDIES. OR YOU CAN PLAY VIDEO GAMES IN HIS COTTAGE. AND ALL THE GROWN FAMILIES WOULD HAVE THEIR OWN COTTAGES AND GRAND MEALS TOGETHER. >>IN OTHER WORDS, YOU’RE SORT OF CLOSETED AWAY FROM EVERYONE, WHICH IS — I’M SURE A PRESIDENT IS COGNIZANT, TOO, OF THE INCONVENIENCE TO FOLKS. THE PRESIDENT CAN’T HELP THAT TRAVELING BACK AND FORTH TO CITIES, BUT IN DONALD TRUMP’S CASE, THE TRUMP TOWER, THE MIDDLE OF MIDTOWN MANHATTAN — >>IT SHUTS DOWN THE CITY. >>IT SHUTS DOWN THE CITY IS RIGHT. I WONDER HOW THAT FACTORS IN TO WHAT THEY DECIDE TO DO. >>I THINK IT WILL BE BIG. HAVING WORKED ON THE WHITE HOUSE STAFF, I REMEMBERED WHEN WE WOULD FLY INTO BOSTON, YOU WOULD SHUT DOWN THAT TUNNEL COMING OUT OF THE AIRPORT. WE WOULD GET SO MUCH GRIEF THAT THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T WANT TO GO. YOU WOULD USE A LOT OF COMMERCE LAWS. AND THEY ARE GOING TO — YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET INTO SHANGHAI CHARLIE’S OR SHANGHAI JOE’S TO GET THE GREAT DUMPLINGS. THEY ARE GOING TO SHUT DOWN A LOT OF GREAT PLACES NEAR TRUMP TOWER. THAT WILL GET OLD. >>THEY HAVE TO REALIZE A FEW BLOCKS SOUTH IS A WONDERFUL OLIVE GARDEN. BUT I DIGRESS. THE BREADSTICKS ARE TO DIE FOR. BUT LET ME GET YOUR TAKE ON WHY IT IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT WITH TRUMP AND THAT SOME OF HIS HOME, NOT TRUMP TOWER, BUT MAR-A-LAGO, IN WELL TRAFFICKED, WELL-SCENE AREAS, YOU COULD ARGUE ABOUT HICKORY WITH JFK, YOU KNOW, AND EVEN EISENHOWER GOING BACK TO GETTYSBURG. THEY WERE HIDDEN FROM FOLKS, YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT BUSH’S RANCH OUTSIDE OF WACO HIDDEN FROM FOLKS. SO THIS IS ON DISPLAY. AND SO FOR THEM, IT CUTS INTO THEIR PRIVACY, RIGHT? BECAUSE THRONGS CAN GET NEARBY.>>YES, AND THERE COULD BE ISSUES. THERE COULD BE SECURITY ISSUES. I MEAN, THESE TRUMP PROPERTIES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE LIKELY TO HAVE A BULL’S-EYE ON THEM. THIS IS AN EVOLVING ISSUE FOR HIM. HE’S VERY WEALTHY. THEY ENDED UP AT CAMP DAVID EVEN THOUGH THEY DIDN’T LIKE IT AT FIRST. AND ALMOST ALL THE CHILDREN I INTERVIEWED ENDED UP LOVING THE PLACE BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY ACRES. AND IT WAS SO PRIVATE. MY GUESS IS THAT IT WILL START THE SAME WAY. IT WON’T BE IMPRESSIVE AT FIRST AND END UP EMBRACING THAT. BUT WE WILL SEE. YOU KNOW, YOU MENTIONED PRIVACY, EISENHOWER, HE WENT TO SOME PUBLIC PLACES IN GEORGIA WHERE HE PLAYED GOLF AND TOOK OVER THE WHOLE COUNTRY CLUB. BUT IT’S A DIFFERENT TIME TODAY.>>VERY DIFFERENT TIME.>>WE’RE IN A TOUGHER TIME. >>AND WE GOT NOXIOUS PRESS PEOPLE SPYING ON YOU.>>GREAT THINGS HAPPEN AT TIMES. AND BAD THINGS HAPPEN AT RESORTS AWAY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. FDR DIED AT THE LITTLE WHITE HOUSE IN WARM SPRINGS, GEORGIA. AND HIS MISSTRESS WAS THERE. WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT NOW BUT THEY COULDN’T TALK ABOUT IT THEN. >>DOUG, I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP ON SO MANY THINGS POLITICAL AND HISTORIC AND ALL OF THAT.>>THANK YOU, NEIL.>>>IN THE MEANTIME, THE PRESIDENT-ELECT IS NOT BACKING AWAY FROM HIS BUSINESS INTERESTS. IN OTHER WORDS, HE REVIEWED THIS. APPARENTLY THE LEGALITIES AROUND THIS HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE TO SET T. HE DOESN’T HAVE TO DIVORCE HIMSELF FOR THOSE BUSINESSES. IS THAT RIGHT? IS THAT TRUE? IS THAT LEGAL? IS THAT A PROBLEM?>>>ALL RIGHT. NOT ONLY ARE WE AWAITING A CABINET ANNOUNCEMENT OF WHO WILL COMPLETE WHAT, BUT WE’RE TRYING TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WILL DO IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS. THE MONEY MAESTRO GENIUS STEVE FORBES WITH US NOW. YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING TAX CUTS EARLY ON. I GET MIXED READS WITH WHOM I TALK WITH IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN ABOUT WHETHER THEY WILL BE. I THINK THEY MISS AN OPPORTUNITY IF THEY DON’T DO THAT RIGHT AWAY. WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>THEY HAVE TO GO BIG RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY SPECIAL INTERESTS IN WASHINGTON. IF YOU TRY TO DO THIS PIECE-MEAL, NEIL, YOU’LL GET EATEN ALIVE AND NOT GET MUCH DONE. >>IT WILL DRAG OUT. IF YOU CHANGE THE TAX CODE, YOU NEED A SENATE VOTE, YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES. >>SO DO IT AT THE BEGINNING, BARGAIN, BUT GO BIG, GO PERSONAL AND BUSINESSES AS WELL. MAKE YOUR STATEMENTS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. YOU ADDRESS THIS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THEREFORE, THAT’S WHAT REAGAN DID, GO OVER THEIR HEADS, AND YOU CREATE A CLIMATE WHERE YOU CAN GET BIG THINGS DONE. BUT IF YOU NEGOTIATE WITH YOURSELF, YOU’VE LOST BEFORE YOU STARTED.>>NOW APPARENTLY THE LOGIC FOR THIS, AND I’LL GET TO OTHER THINGS, STEVE, BUT THEY HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING BUSINESS TAX CUTS THROUGH SUBSTANTIAL THOUGH THEY WILL BE, BUT NOT INDIVIDUAL RATES. AND I WOULD THINK THE TWO ARE JOINED AT THE HIP, AREN’T THEY?>>THEY ARE. AND POLITICALLY, IT WOULD BE A LOSER, ESPECIALLY DONALD TRUMP, THE GREAT OUTSIDER COMING IN. WANTING TO DRAIN THE SWAMP. THE FIRST THING HE DOES IS BUSINESS TAX CUTS INSTEAD OF INDIVIDUALS. YOU CAN DO BOTH. AND REAGAN GOT BOTH DONE IN HIS FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE. AND TRUMP SHOULD DO THE SAME. AGAIN, DON’T THINK SMALL. YOU HAVE A MANDATE. GET THE CAPITOL TO DO OTHER THINGS. >>DO YOU THINK HIS OWN BUSINESS INTERESTS AND TIES THAT ARE QUITE ENTANGLED COULD GET IN THE WAY, IN OTHER WORDS, IF HE DOESN’T SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM THAT, AND HE’S GIVEN HINTS THAT HE MIGHT NOT, THAT PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS LOOK AT WHATEVER HE COMES UP WITH, THERE’S THIS BUSINESS OR THIS TRANSACTION OR THIS CASINO OR THIS HOTEL, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING? DOES HE HAVE TO SEPARATE THOSE OUT TO AVOID THAT KIND OF SCRUTINY?>>YOU CAN DO SOME SEPARATION, BUT NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES, SHORT OF SELLING THE THING, WHICH IN THE REAL ESTATE WORLD WOULD BE A DISASTER, IT WOULD BE SUCH A DISASTROUS HAIRCUT, THEY ARE GOING TO FIND SOMETHING TO HIT YOU WITH. SO NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES, IT WILL BE WRONG IN THE EYES OF HIS CRITICS. BUT WHAT HE COULD DO IS HAVE ONE OF HIS KIDS BE IN CHARGE OF IT. HE’S GOING TO FIND, I THINK, PRETTY SOON IF HE HASN’T FELT IT ALREADY, THEY ARE TRYING TO RUN A BUSINESS AND A COUNTRY AT THE SAME TIME. NOT GOING TO WORK. I DON’T CARE WHAT THE LAWYERS SAY, THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH A HUMAN BEING CAN DO. HE’LL TRY TO OPERATE ONE OF THE KIDS IN THE BUSINESS.>>HOW CAN IT WORK THAT WAY? I THINK IN THE PAST, WITH FDR COMING IN, HE CAN SAY THUS ALL MY MOTHER’S WEALTH, IT CAN BE SEPARATED THAT WAY. EVEN THEN IT WAS DICY. JOHN KENNEDY SAYING IT WAS HIS FATHER’S WEALTH. BUT OBVIOUSLY, YOU TALK TO YOUR MOM, YOU TALK TO YOUR DAD. CAN A FAM PLY REALLY SEPARATE THAT? IN OTHER WORDS, THAT DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN THERE’S TOTAL SEPARATION, RIGHT?>>THERE IS NO TOTAL SEPARATION BECAUSE ANYTHING YOU DO AS PRESIDENT, ESPECIALLY THIS MAN WHO HAS STUFF ALL AROUND THE WORLD, IS GOING TO DEBT ENTANGLED. SO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS, TRY TO DO IT AS BEST YOU CAN. AND TWO, IF YOU GO WITH SOMETHING LIKE TAX CUTS FOR INDIVIDUALS AS WELL AS BUSINESSES, PEOPLE THEN START TO GIVE YOU THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. THIS GUY’S GETTING BIG THINGS DONE, WE’RE NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO THESE CRITICS. THEY LISTEN TO CRITICS WHEN THINGS ARE GOING BADLY. IF HE GETS THINGS GOING SMOOTHLY IN A GOOD WAY FOR THE ECONOMY, THEN HE’LL HAVE THE CAPITAL TO NOT GET TRIPPED UP BY THE INEVITABLE, THE FACT HE CAN’T SEPARATE HIMSELF AS PRESIDENT FROM THINGS HE HAS AROUND THE WORLD. NOT TO MENTION INSIDE THE U.S.>>I DO KNOW THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WILL PAY LESS ATTENTION TO A WEALTHY DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT THAN A WEALTHY REPUBLICAN ONE. I COULD BE WRONG. I COULD BE WRONG.>>NOT ON THAT ONE.>>NOW, DO YOU THINK IN WHAT YOU’RE SEEING WITH THE CABINET CHOICE REAL QUICK, IT’S AN INTERESTING — SOME LIKEN IT TO A THEME OF RIVALS, SORT OF A PENDULUM HERE, HOW DO YOU SEE IT?>>IT IS VERY INTERESTING AND POSITIVE. HE’S THE BOSS NO MATTER WHO IS IN THE CABINET, EVEN MORE THAN WHEN LINCOLN PUT IN HIS RIVALS IN THE CABINET. AND NUMBER TWO, I THINK THAT IT DEMONSTRATES THAT HE WANTS TO GET UNITY IN THE PARTY FOR THE FIGHTS AHEAD. BUT HE’LL SET THE POLICY. AND I THINK IT JUST SETS OR TAKES THE TEMPERATURE DOWN. THE CRITICS ARE GOING TO HARPING IN THE MEDIA AND ELSEWHERE THAT MOST OF THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO SAY, THIS GUY WANTS TO PUT TOGETHER A GOOD TEAM. PEOPLE HAVE CRITICIZED HIM. AND IF THEY CAN UNIFY, BOY, THAT’S GOOD. WE NEED MORE UNITY, NOT BICKERING.>>ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. STEVE FORBES, I BELIEVE IN TALKING ABOUT THE TAJ MAHAL IN ATLANTIC CITY, THAT’S NO LONGER ASSOCIATED WITH MR. TRUMP ANYWAY. BUT HOW HE HANDLES THOSE BUSINESSES IN RELATION TO WHAT HE DOES ON THE OTHER INITIATIVES GETTING A GREAT DEAL OF SCRUTINY.>>>IN THE MEANTIME, TOMORROW IS THANKSGIVING. AND SOME OF YOU COMMENTED, NEIL, WE HEARD YOU HAD HEART SURGERY AND ARE TAKING IT EASY AND NOT EATING TOO MUCH. THAT’S A GIVEN. BUT I WANT TO POINT OUT, IT’S JUST ONE DAY, LOOK AT WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH. WOULD IT REALLY HURT IF I HAD EXTRA STUFFING? BECAUSE NOW I’M GOING INTO THE CONTROL ROOM TO GET MY PRODUCERS FOR DIGGING UP THESE PICTURES TO MAKE ME FEEL GUILTY. AND YES, THE HOSPITAL GOWN DOES ADD 15 POUNDS. MORE AFTER THIS. WHAT DO YOU TELL YOUR CLIENTS?>>THERE’S A PLACE TO MERGE BOTH HEALTHY EATING AS WELL AS ENJOYING THE HOLIDAY. I THINK SO MUCH OF THE HAS TO DO WITH FOCUSING ON THE GRATITUDE THAT WE HAVE FOR OUR LIVES AND ALSO FOR OUR FOOD. PART OF THE GRATITUDE FOR THE FOOD MEANS SLOWING DOWN AND ENJOYING EVERY SINGLE BITE AND NOT NECESSARILY GETTING TO THE POINT OF BEING STUFFED OURSELVES LIKE THE TURKEYS THAT WE’RE COOKING. >>YOU KNOW, I KNOW WE HAVEN’T MET, BUT I’M A BIG EXERCISER. THAT’S WHAT I DO. THIS WAY IT AVOIDS HEART SURGERY. I FORGOT, IT DOESN’T. WHEN I WORK OUT — THIS IS ROUTINE. A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO DO SAY, WELL, I CAN EAT ANYTHING I WANT BECAUSE I WORK OUT. WHAT DO YOU TELL THEM?>>THAT’S NOT NECESSARILY TRUE. I ALWAYS RECOMMEND EXERCISING. NOT ONLY DOES IT HELP WITH YOUR METABOLISM BUT WITH OUR NEUROTRANSMITTER HELP WHICH HELPS US CONTROL CRAVINGS AND WITH SLEEP AT NIGHT. AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, EXERCISE IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR ALL ASPECT OF HEALTH. WE NEED TO WORK THAT IN. AT THE SAME TIME, WE NEED TO KNOW OUR FOOD PLAYS THE OTHER MAJOR ROLE IN WHETHER WE GAIN WEIGHT AND HOW OUR HEALTH STARTS TO ACCUMULATE AND WHETHER WE DEVELOP DISEASE. FOOD IS VERY IMPORTANT.>>YOU KNOW, THEY HAVE THESE NOW STANDUP DESKS. I WONDER IF THEY COME WITHSTANDUP EATING. THAT’S PROBABLY NOT HAPPENING. IS IT?>>I DON’T THINK SO. I DON’T THINK THAT’S HAPPENING. NOT ONLY THAT, WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE SITTING, RELAX. THEY SAY WE’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE TALKING OR THINKING ABOUT ANYTHING STRESSFUL WHILE WE’RE EATING. FOCUSING ON THE DIGESTIVE PROCESS AND LETTING OUR BODIES DO THE WORK THAT THEY NEED TO BREAK DOWN THE FOOD AND ASSIMILATE IT INTO THE TRUE NUTRIENTS WE NEED. >>SAY YOU HAD HEART SURGERY MONTHS AGO AND YOU GOTTA EAT HEALTHY, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING. BUT THERE ARE OTHERS WHO WILL ARGUE, IT’S ONLY ONE DAY. WHO WILL NOTICE? THERE ARE OTHERS WHO WILL JUST AS QUICKLY ADD EVERYTHING IN MODERATION SO YOU DON’T GO BACK TO THE HOSPITAL FOR SAID OPERATION THAT WAS HELL ON EARTH. WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>I THINK THAT IF YOU JUST HAD HEART DISEASE, I THINK THANKSGIVING IS THE PERFECT TIME TO START IMPLEMENTING REALLY CHANGING — REALLY CEMENTING OUR HEALTHY EATING HABITS.>>WHAT WOULD YOU LEAVE OUT?>>I DON’T THINK I WOULD LEAVE EVERYTHING OUT. EVERYTHING IN MODERATION IS TRUE. I THINK THAT THERE’S SOMETHING CALLED THE LAW OF DIMINISHING MARGINAL RETURNS WHICH MEANS THE FIRST COUPLE BITES OF THE FOOD WE EAT ARE THE BEST BITES THAT WE EXPERIENCE. AFTER THAT, THE ENJOYMENT WE EXPERIENCE FROM BITE THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX GETS LESS AND LESS. IF WE CAN FOCUS ON ENJOYING THE FIRST COUPLE BITES, THEN I THINK THAT’S WHERE IT’S AT. DON’T LEAVE ANYTHING OUT.>>JUST WANT TO WRITE THAT DOWN. GET THIS TO MY FAMILY. DON’T LEAVE ANYTHING OUT AND GO AHEAD AND HAVE — I THINK YOU SAID 12 SERVINGS OF TURKEY AND STUFFING. RIGHT?>>THERE YOU GO. I MEAN, IT’S — I THINK WE HAVE TO LOOK AT HEALTHY RECIPES, TOO. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT PORTION CONTROL.>>SURE.>>IT’S ABOUT CONTROLLING OUR FOOD.>>YOU ARE RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH. GREAT HAVING YOU ON. HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU TOO.>>NUTRITIONIST EXTRAORDINARY.>>>WE HAVE HEIGHTENED SECURITY NOT ONLY AROUND GROCERY STORES TRYING TO WARD OFF ME COMING BUT REGULAR SECURITY, IT’S ON HIGH, HIGH, HIGH ALERT. IN NEW YORK ESPECIALLY, RIGHT OUTSIDE THIS BUILDING. AFTER THIS.>>>NEW YORK’S TIMES SQUARE WHERE THEY ARE GETTING READY FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING AND TRYING TO MAKE SURE IT’S A SAFE THANKSGIVING DAY. CATHERINE HERRIDGE IS LIVE FROM UNION STATION WITH WHAT THEY ARE DOING.>>Reporter: THANK YOU. THIS IS THE BUSIEST TRAVEL PERIOD FOR AMTRAK OF THE ENTIRE YEAR. THEY ARE EXPECTING MORE THAN 750,000 PASSENGERS. THE PEAK DAYS ARE TUESDAY, TODAY AND SUNDAY. HERE AT UNION STATION THE PASSENGERS WE SPOKE WITH SAID THE HIGH SECURITY IS NOT AN ISSUE.>>I GUESS I’M NEUTRAL TO IT. I GUESS IN A WAY IT MAKES ME FEEL MORE SAFE. IF I WAS GOING TO FLY SOMEWHERE, THERE COULD BE DELAYS. THE TRAINS ARE PRETTY MUCH ALL ON TIME. >>I FEEL LIKE IT’S LESS OF A TARGET. GENERALLY SPEAKING, IT SEEMS SAFER.>>Reporter: IF YOU ARE TRAVELING THIS WEEKEND, YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE A LOT OF THESE CANINE TEAMS. THEIR SPECIALTY IS EXPLOSIVE DETECTION. THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO CLEAR A LARGE GROUP OF PASSENGERS QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY. AMTRAK SAID THIS WEEK THAT SECURITY IS HIGH. IT’S ABOUT WHERE IT WAS LAST YEAR.>>AMTRAK POLICE ARE INCREASING THEIR PRESENCE ALONG WITH LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL PARTNERS AS WELL AS CANINES THROUGHOUT THE STATION AND ON RAILWAYS ALONG OUR RIGHT-OF-WAY. THAT’S TYPICAL FOR ANY HOLIDAY. WE ALWAYS BOOST OUR EFFORTS SECURITY-WISE.>>Reporter: AMTRAK IS ADVISING ALL PASSENGERS TO COME A HALF HOUR IN ADVANCE AND TO HAVE PHOTO I.D. BECAUSE THERE WILL BE SPOT CHECKS BEFORE YOU GET ON THE TRAIN OR DURING YOUR TRIP.>>CATHERINE HERRIDGE.>>>DON’T BE FOOLED THERE WERE NO CROWDS BEHIND HER. THERE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE CROWDS IN DENVER OR LAX OR NEWARK OR O’HARE. I AM TOLD A LOT OF YOU ARE CAMERA SHY AND THOUSANDS OF YOU ARE OUT OF THE CAMERA SHOT RANGE AND AFRAID TO PROVE OUR POINT. REGARDLESS HOW YOU GET HOME AND GET TO GRANDMA’S, MAKE IT SAFE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. HAPPY THANKSGIVING.>>>HELLO. IT’S 5:00 IN NEW YORK CITY AND THIS IS “THE FIVE.” NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP ON THIS THANKSGIVING EVE. MR. TRUMP HAS CHOSEN SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR NIKKI HALEY TO BE AMERICA’S AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N. HE PICKED MICHIGAN BUSINESS WOMAN BETSY DEVOS FOR EDUCATION SECRETARY. SHE’S A CHARTER SCHOOL ADVOCATE. THEY ARE THE FIRST TWO WOMEN TO BE TAPPED FOR KEY POSTS IN HIS ADMINISTRATION. A FEW MINUTES AGO, CARSON’S SPOKESMAN SAID TRUMP HAS NOT OFFERED HIM THE POST OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY. HERE IS DR. CARSON TALKING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL POSITION.>>DR. CARSON, NOW THEY ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING YOU — IF THIS IS RIGHT — TO BE A HUD SECRETARY. WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN THAT?>>WELL, YOU KNOW, OUR INNER CITIES ARE IN TERRIBLE SHAPE. THEY DEFINITELY NEED REAL ATTENTION. THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY PROMISED MADE OVER LAST SEVERAL DECADES. NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE. IT CERTAINLY — IT’S SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN A LONG-TERM INTEREST OF MINE.>>HAS IT BEEN OFFERED?>>WE HAVE HAD OFFERS, YES.>>IS IT THE HUD POSITION?>>I WOULD SAY THAT WAS ONE OF THE OFFERS THAT’S ON THE TABLE.>>NO FURTHER — WHO IS ON FIRST? WHO IS AT HUD?>>THE PROBLEM IS, HE DOES NOT LIKE NOT TELLING THE TRUTH. WHEN YOU ARE ASKED DIRECTLY, I SENSE IT HAPPENED BUT HE DOESN’T PLAY THE GAME. HE’S A SURGEON THAT IS A GREAT PERSON THAT GOT AN OFFER. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR HON HE ISTY HONESTY.>>HE ACCEPTED THE JOB AND THEN A COUPLE MINUTES LATER ON THE WAY DOWN, NO, NO, NO, HOLD ON, HE DIDN’T ACCEPT. NOT ONLY DID HE NOT ACCEPT, HE WASN’T OFFERED IT YET.>>THERE WAS A FACEBOOK POST. >>THERE WAS POSTED AND THE REPORTING. WHAT WE DO KNOW IS NIKKI HALEY WAS OFFERED THE JOB OF U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N., WHICH IS FANTASTIC. EARLY MORNING, I WOKE UP TO IT. I E-MAILED DANA. WHY WOULD A SUCCESSFUL, SMART, WELL RESPECTED GOVERNOR OF A SOUTH CAROLINA STATE, REPUBLICAN TAKE A JOB AS AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N.? SHE SAID, THIS IS PERFECT. I WILL LET DANA EXPLAIN WHY. THAT’S A FANTASTIC — >>THAT WAS MY QUESTION.>>ONE THING I WOULD SAY FOR DR. CARSON IS THAT IF YOU ARE UP FOR A JOB OR ANYBODY WHO IS UP FOR A JOB IN THE ADMINISTRATION — FOR THE NEW ADMINISTRATION, DON’T BOOK YOURSELF ON TELEVISION UNTIL IT’S SETTLE YOU WILL GET PUT IN THAT POSITION. DR. CARSON IS NOT ALONE IN NOT WANTING TO LIE, I WOULD SAY. >>I FOUND OUT HE’S ON “THE KELLY FILE” TONIGHT. >>OF COURSE.>>WHAT’S LIKELY IS, IT’S A DONE DEAL. BUT IT’S NOT — >>JUST LIKE, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS LET THE PRESIDENT-ELECT MAKE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT. ON NIKKI HALEY — WHEN I GOT THE E-MAIL, I THOUGHT, I WILL RESPOND THIS WAY. I THINK SHE IS A PUBLIC SERVANT AT HEART. SHE’S HAD A LONG LIST OF PUBLIC SERVICE. SHE HAS PROBABLY NOT GOING — SHE WAS NOT GOING TO RUN AGAIN, I DON’T THINK FOR GOVERNOR OF SOUTH CAROLINA. SHE HAS AN IMMIGRANT STORY, A SUCCESSFUL FAMILY BUSINESS IN AMERICA. SHE SHOWED HER ABILITY TO BE AN AMAZING DIPLOMAT AFTER THE SHOOTING AT THE AME CHURCH IN CHARLESTON. SHE HANDLED THE CONFEDERATE FLAG ISSUE IN A WAY THAT EVERYONE PRAISED HER AT THE END OF THAT. I THINK THIS IS A NATURAL STEP FOR HER. SHE WAS NOT FOR TRUMP AT THE BEGINNING. SHE WAS FOR MARCO RUBIO. SHE CAME AROUND AT THE END. THAT SHOWS THAT HE RESPECTS HER AND THINKS SHE WILL BE ABLE TO ADD TO HIS FOREIGN POLICY AGENDA. THERE WILL BE A LOT OF ISSUES THAT SHE HAS TO TAKE CARE OF RIGHT AWAY. FIRST OF ALL, IT WILL BE THE REFUGEE CRISIS. HOW THE ADMINISTRATION DECIDES TO HANDLE THAT AND HOW DIFFERENT IT MIGHT BE FROM WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD. THE OTHER THING THAT WILL BE A MAJOR ISSUE BECAUSE IT ALWAYS IS AT THE U.N. IS CLIMATE CHANGE. SHE WILL BE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT. IT’S A GREAT PICK FOR HER. PLUS, IF SHE HAS PLANS FOR A FUTURE RUN FOR HIGHER OFFICE, THEN FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE IS SOMETHING THAT SHE WOULD NEED. >>IT’S A WIN WIN FOR HER. >>I THINK IT’S PERFECT. >>IF PENCE DIDN’T WANT TO BE THE P, SHE WOULD BE GOOD FOR THAT. >>YOU WILL SEE A GOVERNOR RACE IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND SOMEBODY ON THE NATIONAL STAGE DECIDE TO RUN. >>ANY PREDICTIONS?>>I THINK TIM SCOTT. >>I LOVE WHEN YOU ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS. DON’T PLAY HARD TO GET, JUST ANSWER.>>FIRST OF ALL, I WILL BE ON “THE KELLY I WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS. I WILL REPORT BACK TO YOU AT 9:00 TONIGHT. I WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS. I AGREE ON NIKKI HALEY. IT’S A SMART PICK. I LIKE THAT TRUMP — PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP IS NOT JUST SURROUNDING HIMSELF WITH SICK FANTS. HE IS REACHING OUT TO PEOPLE WHO WEREN’T NECESSARILY WITH HIM ALL ALONG AND LOOKING FOR DIVERSITY OF OPINION ON HIS FOREIGN POLICY TEAM. >>NOT ONLY DIVERSITY OF OPINION BUT SHEER DIVERSITY. LOOK AT THE THREE WHO WERE NAMED OR AT LEAST FLOATED. NIKKI HALEY, BETTY DEVOS AND BEN CARSON. AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN, TWO FEMALES AND ONE PSEUDO IMMIGRANT PARENTS.>>FROM INDIA.>>THE TWO STRIKES ABOUT DONALD TRUMP WAS THAT WHITE MALES ELECTED AND WE PROVED THAT ONE WRONG AND THAT HE HAD A THIN SKIN. IF YOU HAVE A THIN SKIN, YOU DON’T TAP NIKKI HALEY, SOMEONE WHO IS AGGRESSIVELY CAMPAIGNING FOR MARCO RUBIO THROUGHOUT THE PRIMARY.>>YOU TAP MIKE FLYNN. BUT I’M HAPPY TO HEAR HE IS ROUNDING OUT HIS FOREIGN POLICY TEAM. I HOPE HE CHOOSES MITT ROMNEY, WHO I SHARE — >>INTERESTING.>>SECRETARY OF STATE?>>SECRETARY OF STATE. I SHARE HIS CONCERN ABOUT RUSSIA AND I’M HAPPY TO HEAR HOPEFULLY HE WILL BE CONSIDERED. >>I WOULD LIKE TO SAY AT 44, IF I’M HER COUNSELOR, THIS IS THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO HER. I THINK — THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN EXCELLENT CHOICE. I THINK THAT NIKKI HALEY WILL BE GREAT. IT’S VERY HARD FOR DONALD TRUMP TO FIND SOMEONE CRITICAL OF HIM. THAT’S THE PROBLEM. BEING SARCASTIC. HE HAD SO MANY CRITICS. HE DOES NOT CARE. MY GOODNESS, HE WENT TO SEE “THE NEW YORK TIMES” YESTERDAY. EVERYONE THERE IS A CRITIC. IT’S INTERESTING TO SEE — MORE PRESSURE ON NIKKI HALEY TO GO ALONG WITH DONALD TRUMP. SHE HAS TO DO WHAT HIS POLICIES SAY.>>THAT’S A FOR SURE. I HOPE THEY FIND A GREAT POSITION FOR RICK.>>>WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR WORD ON THE SECRETARY OF STATE POSITION AND WHETHER IT WILL GO TO MITT ROMNEY LIKE WE WERE MENTIONING. ROMNEY DOES NOT, AS YOU MAY HAVE BEEN AWARE, NEWT GINGRICH AND MIKE HUCKABEE’S VOTE. >>I WOULD BE CONCERNED, I THINK THE VAST MAJORITY OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS WILL INITIALLY BE UNHAPPY AND BE REMINDED OF EVERYTHING ROMNEY SAID OVER THE YEAR. TWO, BECAUSE ROMNEY DOES REPRESENT A VERY DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT. I’M NOT SURE WHOSE SECRETARY OF STATE HE WOULD BE. >>I’M STILL VERY UNHAPPY THAT MIT DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO DERAIL DONALD TRUMP. THERE’S ONE WAY THAT I THINK MITT ROMNEY COULD BE CONSIDERED FOR A POST LIKE THAT, AND THAT IS THAT HE GOES TO A MICROPHONE IN A PUBLIC PLACE AND REPUDIATES EVERYTHING HE SAID IN THE FAMOUS SALT LAKE CITY SPEECH AND EVERYTHING HE SAID AFTER THAT.>>DANA, YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT? THE TWO OPINIONS. >>I WOULD SAY THAT IF YOU ARE UP FOR A POSSIBLE CABINET POSITION OR SOMEWHERE IN THE GOVERNMENT, IT’S PROBABLY SMART NOT TO BE ON TELEVISION AT THE MOMENT AND JUST LET THE PROCESS PLAY OUT. BECAUSE THEY DON’T GET TO DECIDE. THEY CAN ADVISE AND THEY CAN COMMENT AND THEY CAN ADVISE THROUGH THE MEDIA IF THEY WANT. DONALD TRUMP GETS TO DECIDE. HE MAY OR MAY NOT CHOOSE MITT ROMNEY. I DON’T KNOW. I THINK THAT IN SOME WAYS WHEN YOU ARE PUBLICALLY PRESSURED LIKE THAT, IT MAKES YOU WANT DO IT MORE. >>INTERESTING. ERIC, WE KNOW — JULIE, I GOT YOUR OPINION ON THIS.>>I DON’T LIKE HIM FOR SECRETARY OF STATE. EVERYONE LIKES HIM FOR SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE REASONS THAT BOTH HUCKABEE AND NEWT SAID, LOOK, DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED BY PEOPLE WHO LOVE DONALD TRUMP, WHO LOVE DONALD TRUMP’S VISION. MITT ROMNEY NEVER HAD THAT. I DO THINK MITT IS TALENTED. HE IS SMART. I REMEMBER WHEN HE WAS TAPPED TO FIX THE OLYMPICS. THAT WAS WHERE HE EXCELLED. WHAT’S THE MOST BROKE — POSSIBLY THE MOST BROKEN SYSTEM IN GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW? IT’S THE V.A. HAVE HIM TURN THAT THING AROUND. GET IN THERE AND SHAKE THAT UP. BUST SOME UNIONS UP, START OFFERING SOME OF THE THINGS THAT DONALD TRUMP PROMISED WHERE VETERANS GET VOUCHERS.>>I DON’T THINK HE HAS THE RIGHT BACKGROUND, EXPERIENCE FOR VETERANS. I DON’T THINK HE IS BEING STRONGLY CONSIDERED FOR THAT, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU. I DO KNOW WHO IS.>>HERE IS THE PROBLEM FOR MITT ROMNEY. THERE WAS AN INTERVIEW YESTERDAY, IF I’M ASKED, I WILL SERVE. IF YOU WANT A GUY THAT’S MOTIVATED TO CHANGE HIS REPUTATION BACK TO WHERE IT WAS, WHICH IS OFF THE CHARTS GREAT, IT’S DAVID PETRAEUS. HE HAS A LOT OF INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE. HE HAS CONTACTS. HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT IT MEANS TO GO TO WAR. HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A DIPLOMAT, HOW TO WORK THE MEDIA. HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT IT TAKES TO FOLLOW ORDERS. THE FACT THAT HE TOLD THE BBC IF ASKED, I WOULD DO IT AND TWICE HE ANSWERED AGAIN, THE FACT THAT GENERAL KEANE WAS OFFERED THE JOB, WAS OFFERED THE DEFENSE JOB, HE HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO TRUMP FOR A LONG TIME, I’M SURE HE SAID, HEY, THE GUY I MENTORED, DAVID PETRAEUS, KEEP HIM IN MIND. SO THAT MIGHT BE THE GREATEST THREAT. >>YOU KNOW WHAT’S INTERESTING ABOUT PETRAEUS, THIS IS NOT A SNARKING COMMENT, HE HAS A LOT OF THE PROBLEMS PEOPLE CASSTY GATED HILLARY CLINTON FOR. WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT HOW GENUINE YOU WERE ABOUT HILLARY?>>YOU ARE NOT WRONG TO SAY THAT. I WOULD SAY THE MAGNITUDE OF THE TWO IS VERY DIFFERENT. THERE’S ONE GUY WITH A LEGITIMATELY A WAR RECORD THAT WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY IN MILITARY HISTORY. >>WHO PAID FOR IT.>>BIG TIME. HE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE AS HEAD OF THE CIA. WHICH WAS THE WRONG PLACE FOR HIM. IF HE GOES THROUGH THE VETTING PROCESS AND GOES THROUGH THE SENATE, I THINK THAT HE IS A GUY THAT CAN JOIN THE CLUB. NOT PERFECT.>>INTERESTING, JULIE’S COMMENTS ABOUT MITT ROMNEY. HE IS SOMEBODY WHO IS CAPABLE. JUST IN GENERAL FOR SOME KIND OF APPOINTMENT.>>LISTEN — >>YOUR TEAM WOULD APPROVE. >>IT’S NOT THAT MY TEAM WOULD APPROVE. I WOULD BE CURIOUS — LET ME FINISH MY THOUGHT. WHAT’S INTERESTING IS THAT TRUMP HAS SUCH CLOSE CONNECTIONS TO RUSSIA, WHETHER THROUGH PEOPLE THAT POTENTIALLY FINANCED HIS OPERATION, THE FACT HIS SON MET IN FRANCE LAST YEAR OR EARLIER THIS YEAR, I’M SORRY, WITH PUTIN PEOPLE IN SYRIA AND TO HAVE SOMEBODY WHO IS SUCH A HAWK ON RUSSIA, WHICH I LOVE, BE HIS SECRETARY OF STATE WOULD BE INCREDIBLY — >>ROMNEY?>>WOULD BE — >>LOOK AT THE PROBLEMS YOU GET INTO — ALL RIGHT. HILLARY CLINTON WORKED DIRECTLY WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA ON THE BENGHAZI STRATEGY, WITH THEM ON THE IRAN STRATEGY. LOOK HOW IT TURNED OUT. MITT ROMNEY DOESN’T SEE ANYWHERE NEAR EYE TO EYE WITH DONALD TRUMP’S VISION OF FOREIGN POLICY, ANYWHERE.>>WOULD YOU PUT HIM SOME PLACE ELSE BESIDES THE V.A.? GIVE ME ANOTHER ONE. >>I DON’T KNOW. I WOULDN’T WANT TO SEE HIM REPRESENTING PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S VISION OF FOREIGN POLICY. THE GUY IS A NON-INTERVENTIONIST. YOU WILL SEND — >>KEEP IN MIND, HIS DAD GAVE ADVICE, DON’T SERVE IN A CABINET OFFICIAL FOR A PRESIDENT. HE HATED IT WHEN HE SERVED FOR NIXON. HE IS USED TO BEING IN CHARGE. AS SECRETARY OF STATE, YOU DO YOUR OWN THING. THAT WOULD BE DIFFERENT. >>IT WOULD BE MORE INTERESTING.>>YOU CAN’T SHOW DAYLIGHT BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND THE SECRETARY OF STATE.>>I KNOW.>>I THINK THERE WOULD BE. I THINK THEY THINK OF THIS AS A BUSINESS ARRANGEMENT THAN ANYTHING PERSONAL. >>YOU WANT TO GET STUFF DONE. CHOOSE THE BEST PEOPLE. >>PUT HIM IN TREASURY. HE KNOWS MONEY INSIDE AND OUT.>>>WE SOLVED ALL THE PROBLEMS. WE’RE GOING TO GO TO COMMERCIAL. PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP HELD MEETINGS WITH THE PRESS THIS WEEK. WILL THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA CONSIDER COVERING HIM FAIRLY NOW? HIS SENIOR ADVISER KELLYANNE CONWAY HAS A MESSAGE FOR THE PRESS WHEN “THE FIVE” RETURNS.>>>WELCOME BACK TO “THE FIVE.” THERE WAS AN APPOINTMENT THAT DONALD TRUMP MADE TODAY THAT WE DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO TALK ABOUT. THAT’S FOR THE SECOND OF EDUCATION. HE HAS TAPPED BETSY DEVOS. SHE’S FROM MICHIGAN. SHE HAS A HISTORY OF FILL AN PHILANTHROPY. SHE SAID IN A STATEMENT THAT SHE WANTS TO HELP DONALD TRUMP MAKE AMERICAN EDUCATION GREAT AGAIN. A PLAY ON THE SLOGAN. SHE HAS SAID THAT THE STATUS QUO IN EDUCATION IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. AGREED. TOGETHER WE CAN WORK TO MAKE TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE THAT ENSURED EVERY STUDENT HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO FULFILL HIS OR HER HIGHEST POTENTIAL. YOU THOUGHT THIS WAS AN OKAY PICK?>>I THINK IT’S AN INTERESTING PICK. YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET ME KICKED OUT OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. I THINK IT’S AN OKAY PICK IN THE SENSE THAT, I BELIEVE IN STANDARDS. I SHE — SHE’S A COMMON CORE SUPPORTER. DONALD TRUMP IS NOT. I WILL BE CURIOUS HOW THEY THREAD THAT NEEDLE. >>SHE WALKED THAT BACK. THEY SAID SHE’S NOT.>>IN THAT CASE, I MAY NOT BE –>>I THINK YOU CAN BE FOR STANDARDS AND NOT SUPPORT COMMON CORE CURRICULUM.>>RIGHT. THEY WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS NOT A COMMON CORE.>>WHICH I THINK IS INTERESTING. WHAT’S APPEALING ABOUT HER TO PEOPLE LIKE ME IS THAT I AM FOR STANDARDS. I HOPE SHE TRIES TO MAINTAIN A FEDERAL STANDARD. NOT BECAUSE I WANT TO FEDERALIZE EDUCATION, BEFORE EVERYBODY SENDS ME E-MAILS. BUT I THINK THERE NEEDS TO BE SOMETHING THAT EVERYBODY ACROSS THE COUNTRY ASPIRES TO REGARDLESS OF THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM.>>NOT CURRICULUM.>>BUT ERIC, AN A FOR ONE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS DIFFERENT FROM A HIGH PERFORMING SCHOOL DISTRICT. WHICH IS WHY YOU NEED AN — >>I DON’T SEE HER AS SOMEONE WHO IS A WRECKING BALL. SHE’S NOT GOING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND START TEARING THE PLACE APART. >>SHE WILL GO THROUGH IT METHODICALLY. I LIKE SHE’S NOT IN BED WITH THE UNIONS. YOU SAW SHE WAS ABLE TO GET PRAISE FROM JEB BUSH.>>I WONDERED IF THAT HELPED HER. FOR SOME PEOPLE — JEB BUSH WAS STRONG ON COMMON CORE. I THINK FOR GOOD REASONS AT THE TIME. BUT I DID WONDER IF THAT MAYBE GAVE PEOPLE PAUSE.>>I THINK HE GAVE TRUMP — THE WHOLE THING IS GIVING SUPPORTERS A PAUSE. HOPEFULLY, HE WAS PICKING THE MOST QUALIFIED PEOPLE, IT DIDN’T MATTER IF THEY WERE MALE, FEMALE, BLACK, WHITE, GAY, STRAIGHT OR A TRUMP SUPPORTER OR A NEVER TRUMPER. THAT SHOULDN’T MATTER AT THE END OF THE DAY. NEWT AND RUDY HIGHLIGHTED SOME OF THE PUSHBACK THAT THEY’RE HAVING BECAUSE OF THE SUPPORT. FOR ME, IT’S THE ISSUES. HE IS PRO — SHE IS — >>FOR STANDARDS.>>PRO SCHOOL CHOICE. DONALD TRUMP HAS ONE OF HIS MAIN CAMPAIGN PROMISES, HE WANTED TO BRING $20 BILLION TO OFFER MORE SCHOOL CHOICE. I THINK THAT RESONATED WITH A LOT OF FEMALES — THE FEMALE VOTE. >>HOW ABOUT THE INNER CITY?>>STAY WITH THAT. COMMON CORE, THAT’S GOT TO GO, TOO.>>I’M SURE — DONALD TRUMP IS ON RECORD AND SAYS WE HAVE TO GET RID OF IT. HE SAID THIS. I THINK SHE’S GOING TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE IN THE INNER CITY MIGHT HAVE FEDERAL MONEY IN ORDER TO MAKE A CHOICE TO GO TO THE CHARTER SCHOOLS. WHEN YOU HAVE MAYORS IN NEW YORK CITY WHO TELL THE KIDS, WE’RE GOING TO SHUT DOWN THE CHARTER SCHOOLS AND JAM YOU INTO PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT ARE FAILING, THAT’S FRUSTRATING. SHE HAS OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. SHE’S USED TO HAVING POWER. HER FAMILY OWNS AMWAY. YOU KNOW SHE’S CLEAN. YOU KNOW SHE LOVES THE MAGIC BECAUSE THEY OWN THE ORLANDO MAGIC. THEY KNOW HOW TO MAKE THINGS WORK. WE UNDERSTAND THAT HER BROTHER IS — HER BROTHER IS ERIC PRINCE.>>FOR THOSE VIEWERS WHO MIGHT NOT KNOW. >>HE HAD BLACKWATER FOR A WHILE. HE HAS OTHER PARAARMIES AROUND THE WORLD.>>THAT COULD COME IN HELPFUL. TO BATTLE THE UNION.>>HE IS USED TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE. ERIC PRINCE IS A BIG SUPPORTER.>>THAT’S A — >>ONE THING I WANT TO SAY, SHE’S FOR CHARTERS BUT SHE’S FOR VOUCHERS FOR PRIVATE SCHOOLS. THAT’S WHERE PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO ARE PRO CHARTER WOULD PART WITH HER. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH CHARTERS. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH PUBLIC MONEY TAKEN OUT OF THE COMMON DENOMINATOR AND BEING SENT TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS. >>MAYBE SHE CAN THREAD THAT NEEDLE. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THIS DOES IS SHE’S FROM MICHIGAN. DONALD TRUMP’S FIRST REPUBLICAN TO WIN MICHIGAN IN AN AGE. I THINK MICHIGAN LOOKS PRETTY GOOD.>>I THINK SO. THERE’S A LOT OF DIFFERENT CHOICES HE COULD HAVE MADE. THIS IS ONE PEOPLE ARE PLEASED WITH. SHE WILL DO A GO JOB AND SHE HAS GREAT IDEAS ABOUT EDUCATION. I WAS EXCITED WHEN I READ IT. BIG THING FOR ME IS I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE EDUCATION — >>HOW DID AL SHARPTON GET PASSED UP?>>IT’S FIXED.>>NEVER TOO LATE.>>HAROLD FORD, HE IS IN THE MIX.>>I LIKE THAT.>>A GREAT GUY. I LIKE HIM A LOT. HE IS FANTASTIC. >>NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS LAST NAME.>>VERY PERSONABLE.>>>PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP HAS HAD A ROCKY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PRESS. AFTER A SERIES OF MEETINGS THIS WEEK, WILL IT GET BETTER? KELLYANNE CONWAY HAS A MESS SOUTH FOR THE PRESIDENT WHEN “THE FIVE” RETURNS.>>>PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP HASN’T KEPT HIS FEELINGS ABOUT THE PRESS VERY CLOSE TO THE VEST ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL HE REPEATEDLY LASHED OUT AT WHAT HE CALLS THE DISHONEST MEDIA AND HAS CONTINUED TO DO SO. ON MONDAY, PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP HELD A MEETING WITH JOURNALISTS AND NEWS EXECUTIVES AT TRUMP TOWER TO SENIOR ADVISER KELLYANNE CONWAY CHARACTERIZED IT AS A RESET BUT ACKNOWLEDGES THE PRESS WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT ADMINISTRATION TO DEAL WITH THIS TIME AROUND. >>APART FROM THE PROTECTIVE PRESS POOL QUESTIONS STRUCTURALLY, I THINK YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE AN UNCONVENTIONAL PRESIDENCY IN DONALD TRUMP. BECAUSE HE IS UNCONVENTIONAL. MANY IN THE PRESS ARE IN CAMPAIGN MODE. THEY ARE SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS FIGURING OUT HOW TO STOP THIS GUY FROM BECOMING PRESIDENT OR FROM FORMING A CABINET IN HIS LIKENESS OR FROM ACTUALLY DOING THINGS, ACTIVITY IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS, WHICH MAY UNDO SOME OF THE LEGACY OF THEIR FAVORITE PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT OBAMA. THEY NEED TO GET OVER THAT.>>NOT ONLY THAT, DONALD TRUMP ACTUALLY WENT TO THE NEW YORK TY TIMES — THAT’S SUBSTANTIAL. HE WENT TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” HE GAVE THEM AN ON RECORD INTERVIEW THAT LASTED SOMEWHERE AROUND — I’M NOT SURE THE ON RECORD PART, BUT HE WAS THERE 90 MINUTES. WHAT I SAW — THERE WERE LIVE TWEETINGS. “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTERS WERE LIVE TWEETING. THEY ASKED ABOUT THE ALT RIGHT MOVEMENT. HE DISAVOWED IT. THEY KEEP BRINGING IT UP. DO YOU EXPECT THAT — >>BADGERING THE PRESIDENT-ELECT.>>WILL THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIP?>>I THINK YOU CAN EXPECT — LOOK AT THE PAST TO PREDICT WHAT THE FUTURE WILL BE IN TERMS OF THE RELATIONSHIP. I DON’T THINK THERE’S EVER GOING TO BE A STORYBOOK ROMANCE WITH THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND WITH PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP. AND I THINK WITH THE “NEW YORK TIMES” ESPECIALLY, IT GOT OFF TO A ROCKY START TO BEGIN WITH. BECAUSE THERE WAS INFORMATION, TWEETS BACK AND FORTH. HE SAID IT WAS CANCELED. KELLYANNE SAID IT’S BACK ON. WE WILL GO MEET. WHAT’S ON THE RECORD? WHAT’S OFF THE RECORD? HE WENT. HE WENT TO THEM. HE SAT DOWN. HE DID THE INTERVIEW. THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO START TO BUILD A RELATIONSHIP.>>WHAT IS THE EVOLUTION OF THE NEW REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT COMING IN, THE MEDIA SEEING — 18 MONTHS OF PRIMARY AND GENERAL ELECTION. DO THEY PIVOT? DO THEY GET MORE FOCUSED? DO THEY GET MORE FAIR?>>I THINK ALL OF THE ABOVE. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PRESS AND THE GOVERNMENT ISLY A. DONALD TRUMP BOTH HAS ATTACKED THE MEDIA AND BENEFITS FROM MEDIA EXPOSURE. IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE “NEW YORK TIMES,” THAT’S HIS HOMETOWN PAPER. IT WOULD BE LIKE ME GOING TO THE DENVER POST. THE THING ABOUT THE PROTECTIVE PRESS POOL, I THINK THAT HE SHOULD CONSIDER IT A BADGE OF HONOR. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT STARTED AFTER JOHN F. KENNEDY WAS ASSASSINATED. IT’S ONLY BESTOWED TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACHIEVED THE HIGHEST POSITION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD. IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE YOU ARE NOW AS THE PRESIDENT-ELECT THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT. THE PROTECTIVE PRESS POOL, IT’S NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE THERE FOR SECURITY. THEY ARE THERE BECAUSE YOU ARE A PUBLIC SERVANT. YOU WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. STARTING ON JANUARY 20. THE PROTECTIVE PRESS POOL, I WOULD CONSIDER IT A BADGE OF HONOR. IT’S THE MOST HIGH RESPECT THAT YOU CAN GET IN THE UNITED STATES IN THE GOVERNMENT. >>DO YOU THINK, IS THERE A WAY TO SOFTEN THIS TONE, THIS — >>I THINK HE PLAYED THE PRESS THIS WEEK MASTERFULLY. HE WENT — THEY CAME TO HIM. TALKING ABOUT THE TV EXECUTIVES. WENT TO HIM. HE SAID TO THEM, THIS IS OFF THE RECORD. THEY ACCEPTED THAT. HE THEN — SOMEBODY CLOSE TO HIM LEAKS THE NEW YORK POST. THEY CAN’T RESPOND BECAUSE IT’S OFF THE RECORD. THEY CAN’T GO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. HE GETS OUT HIS MESSAGE HOW HE WAS A TOUGH GUY BECAUSE HE NEEDS AN ADVERSARY BECAUSE HILLARY IS NO LONGER HIS ADVERSARY. HE PLAYED THEM LIKE A FIDDLE.>>WHAT ABOUT THIS OLIVE BRANCH TO THE “NEW YORK TIMES”? WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?>>”THE NEW YORK TIMES” IS THE PAPER OF RECORD. HE UNDERSTANDS — HE IS SMART ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE HAS TO — >>WHAT?>>THAT THEY ARE GOING TO COVER HIM.>>THEY ADMITTED THEY HAD HORRIBLE COVERAGE OF HIM AS HE WAS THE NOMINEE.>>BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING — READ THE 34 PAGES. THEY TRANSCRIBED THE ENTIRE HOUR. IT’S POSTED ON NEWWORKTIMES.COM. HE WENT UP TO ONE OF HIS BIGGEST CRITICS AND SAID, YOU WILL HAVE TO WRITE SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT ME. HE SAID, I HOPE AFTER TWO YEARS YOU WILL SAY THIS GUY IS DOING A GOOD JOB. IT SHOWS AND THE OVERALL IMPRESSION WAS THAT HE WANTS TO WIN THEM OVER. HE WANTS TO OPEN UP THEIR MINDS. HE WAS TOUGH ON TUESDAY. HE WAS TOUGH ON MONDAY. HE WAS LIGHTER ON TUESDAY. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT WHAT THE REASON WAS FOR HIM TO GO TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” I HAVE — WHEN IT’S ALL SAID AND DONE.>>A 90-MINUTE SIT DOWN WITH THEM. >>IT COULD HAVE BEEN LOGISTICS. THERE’S A LOT — >>THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE. >>INSTEAD OF HAVING THEM GO OVER TO THE WORST INTERSECTION IN NEW YORK CITY. >>IN THE WORLD.>>IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. YOU CANNOT GET YOUR HAIR CUT OVER THERE.>>THAT’S A 1%ER PROBLEM. I CAN CUT YOUR HAIR HERE.>>IT COULD HAVE BEEN LOGISTICAL.>>IT WAS EASIER FOR THE PRESIDENT — >>THE KING STORMING THE CASTLE OR SOMETHING. HE GOES IN THERE. HE HAS NOTHING TO HIDE. I WILL MEET THERE ON YOUR TURF. I’M NOT AFRAID TO PLAY AN AWAY GAME AND WIN. AND DRESS THEM DOWN. I’M LOOKING AT YOU. I LIKE IT.>>HE TOLD THEM EVERYTHING THEY WANTED TO HEAR. HE WAS LIKE, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE PARIS AGREEMENT. MAYBE IT’S NOT — EVERY SINGLE THING. TO ME WHAT’S SO FASCINATING IS, THEY BOUGHT — SOMEBODY BOUGHT IT BUT YOU HAVE ONE AUDIENCE HE SAYS ONE THING TO. HE WILL HAVE TO MAKE POLICY — >>ARE THEY GOING TO HAVE A HARDER TIME BEING UNBALANCED WITH HIM?>>YOU THINK? THAT WAS THE BIG QUESTION. HONESTLY — >>I THINK IT’S BRILLIANT. TRUMP IS — >>”THE NEW YORK TIMES” WILL PIVOT ON THE COVERAGE BECAUSE HE WENT TO SHAKE THEIR HAND. >>YOU THINK PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP IS PLAYING — HE IS PLAYING CHESS. THEY’RE PLAYING CHECKERS.>>I BENT OVER BACKWARDS TO BE NICE TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” IT DIDN’T WORK.>>THAT’S THE POINT.>>THAT’S THE PROBLEM.>>>PRESIDENT OBAMA BESTOWED THE NATION’S HIGHEST CIVILIAN HONOR TO CELEBRITIES YESTERDAY. MANY OF THEM OUTSPOKEN ANTI TRUMPERS. DID HE SEND A MESSAGE TO THE PRESIDENT-ELECT DURING THE CEREMONY? YOU DECIDE NEXT.>>>YESTERDAY, PRESIDENT OBAMA AWARDED 21 MEDALS OF FREEDOM. A LOT OF FAMILIAR FACES AND FAMOUS FACES LIKE — WHO WERE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS AND WERE FOR HILLARY CLINTON, ROBERT DE NIRO, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, ELLEN AND TOM HANKS. THERE WERE MOMENTS WHERE IT SURE SOUNDED LIKE THE PRESIDENT WAS TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE TO PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP OR WAS IT ME?>>THESE ARE FOLKS WHO HAVE HELPED ME MAKE WHO I AM AND THINK ABOUT MY PRESIDENCY AND WHAT ALSO MAKES IT SPECIAL IS THIS IS AMERICA. THIS IS WHAT MAKES US THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH. NOT BECAUSE OF OUR DIFFERENCES BUT BECAUSE IN OUR DIFFERENCE WE FIND SOMETHING COMMON TO SHARE. WHAT A GLORIOUS THING THAT IS.>>HE LOOKS TRULY MOVED. ONE OF THE RECIPIENTS WAS CAN A REAM ABDUL SKRA BAR.>>THE REASON WE HONOR KAREEM IS MORE THAN A PAIR OF GOGGLES AND THE SKY HOOK. HE STOOD UP FOR HIS MUSLIM FAITH. HE IS ONE OF A KIND, AN AMERICAN WHO ILLUMINATES OUR BASIC FREEDOMS AND OUR HIGHEST AS SPIR RAGSS.>>WHEN HE WAS HERE, HE PUT — >>A MUSLIM, THAT’S WHY HE WAS CHOSEN?>>WELL, NO. I THINK HE SPOKE UP FOR MUSLIMS IN AMERICA.>>I WAS TEASING.>>KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR HAD THE BEST SCENE IN AIRPLANE OF ALL TIME. IT’S HIS FINE ACADEMY AWARD WINNING PERFORMANCE.>>WHAT ABOUT HIS PERFORMANCE WITH DANA?>>JEOPARDY.>>IT WASN’T JUST THE SIZE DIFFERENT. >>DO YOU SEE — SORRY TO BOTHER YOU.>>I’M TALKING TO MY FRIENDS HERE.>>WHEN I’M IN A CLUB, I CAN SEE YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION. ON TELEVISION — >>THE BACK OF THE LINE. HERE IS THE DEAL. DO I THINK — OBVIOUSLY. THESE ARE THE COOL KIDS ON THE BLOCK. I’M WAITING FOR MORE NAMES. MORE DISTINCTIONS TO HONOR. I’M GOING, WOW. THIS IS A VERY BIG AWARD TO RECEIVE.>>THERE WERE OTHER PEOPLE THERE.>>VIN SCULLEY. MICHAEL JORDAN.>>THESE ARE PEOPLE REALLY CLOSE — >>A COMMON THREAD.>>WITH THE OBAMAS AND — >>CULTURAL ICONS. CELEBRITIES ARE TYPICALLY DEMOCRATS.>>DANA, IS THAT TRUE?>>YES. BUT HERE IS THE THING, I DON’T THINK THAT THEY CAME UP WITH THIS IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS. THE EVENTS AND DECISIONS TAKE MONTHS. WHAT HAPPENS IS, I DON’T KNOW IF THEY DO THIS IN THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE, BUT I ASSUME IT’S THE SAME. YOU GATHER AROUND. PEOPLE CAN SEND IN THEIR SUGGESTIONS FOR WHO IT MIGHT BE THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE GET THE MEDAL OF FREEDOM. THEN THERE’S A DEBATE. I REMEMBER MARK WHO COMES ON AIR OFTEN, HE ADVOCATED VERY STRONGLY — HE MADE CASE FOR THE MEN’S HOCKEY TEAM. WHAT WERE THEY CALLED?>>MIRACLE ON ICE.>>HE WOULD MAKE A STRONG CASE TO HAVE THAT IN. IT’S NOT EASY TO GET ONE OF THESE. ALL OF THE PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY VERY ACCOMPLISHED IN THEIR FIELD. I THINK WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS SAYING IS LET’S CELEBRATE ALL DIFFERENT PEOPLE THROUGH DIFFERENT SECTORS OF THE ECONOMY. >>I LOVE — >>THEY ARE VERY ACCOMPLISHED. WHEN DONALD TRUMP DOES HIS FIRST MEDAL OF FREEDOM EVENT, YOU WILL SEE DIFFERENT PEOPLE.>>I IMAGINE SO. JULIE, WHAT DID BILL GATES ACCOMPLISH IN HIS LIFE?>>I DON’T KNOW. SAVED A COUPLE BILLION LIVES IN AFRICA.>>BESIDES THAT.>>$40 BILLION. >>WINDOWS 95 WAS AMAZING WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE. DID A LOT FOR ME. I’M A JERSEY GIRL.

BRUCE, HE IS THE BOSS.>>KID ROCK COULDN’T BE REACHED.>>ELLEN IS VERY — >>SHE — >>SHE FORGOT TO BRING HER I.D. THEY WOULDN’T LET HER IN THE WHITE HOUSE.>>WHEN SHE DANCED, THEY LET HER IN. IT’S YOU.>>REMEMBER THE WHITE HOUSE DID HAVE SOME I.D. PROBLEMS. >>HOW DID SHE TRAVEL WITHOUT I.D.?>>MAYBE SHE LEFT IT AT THE HOTEL.>>PRIVATE PLANE, YOU DON’T NEED IT.>>THE JET.>>>I THINK I SHOULD — 18 MINUTES BEFORE THE TOP OF THE HOUR. I SHOULD — DID YOU — >>COME ON NOW.>>OKAY.>>COME ON.>>NEVER LISTEN TO STEVEN COLBERT WHEN IT CO COMES TO GETG ADVICE FOR A TURKEY. >>WHEN THEY ANSWER THE PHONE, YOU ARE THE TURKEY EXPERT.>>THAT’S MOSTLY MARKETING.>>PEOPLE CALLING INTO BUTTERBALL’S TURKEY HOTLINE LEARNED THE HARD WAY.>>NEW BANNER.>>>SOME OF THE LATE NIGHT SHOWS HAVE BEEN HAVING FUN AHEAD OF THANKSGIVING. THE TRADITIONAL STORY OF THANKSGIVING ISN’T VERY POLITICALLY CORRECT.>>I AM COLD AND HUNGRY.>>ME TOO.>>LET’S NOT DISMISS THE EXPERIENCES OF ALL THOSE WHO ARE NOT COLD AND HUNGRY.>>LIFE PARTNER, LOOK, WE HAVE VISITORS. >>I SEE. GREETINGS.>>GREETINGS NON-INDIGENOUS PEOPLE.>>SHOULD WE SAY, HOW?>>PLEASE DON’T. IT’S CULTURAL APPROPRIATION.>>THAT’S FANTASTIC.>>THAT’S REALLY GOOD. >>THE BEST THING THEY SAID — DID YOU CALL ME?>>IT’S ALL YOURS. >>THE FLOOR IS YOURS. >>THE BEST THING THAT HAS COME OUT OF DONALD TRUMP’S CANDIDACY SO FAR HAS BEEN THE FACT THAT BOTH SIDES ARE REALIZING BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT SUCKS. I WATCH BILL MAHER AND THE LIBERAL PANEL SAY, ONE THING WE CAN THANK DONALD TRUMP FOR, HE PUSHED BACK ON THE LINE ON POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. HE GOT PEOPLE TO REALLY LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND SAY, HAVE WE GONE TOO FAR. JIMMY KIMMEL IS POINTING IT OUT WITH THOSE CHILDREN. >>HE HAS BEEN A LITTLE UN-PC. HE HAS MADE FUN — >>IF YOU GO TO THE COMEDY CELLAR, ONE OF THE CLUBS HERE THAT I LIKE TO GO TO. IT’S A COMEDY CLUB. >>FOR THE ELITE COMICS GO TO WORK OUT MATERIAL. >>BECAUSE IT’S IN A BASEMENT.>>SO EDGY. >>ALMOST ALL OF THE LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY JOKES ARE — >>TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE. >>ARE NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT. >>I HOPE COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE WATCHING. I THINK THE SAFE SPACES ARE WHAT THEY ARE MAKING FUN OF.>>I WROTE A BOOK THAT DEALT WITH THAT, PUSHING BACK ON PC CULTURE. GUESS WHO SIGNED THE BACK OF THE BOOK? DONALD TRUMP.>>WAKE UP, AMERICA.>>FALLON LAST NIGHT DID THIS THING. IT WAS HILARIOUS. ALL EIGHT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S PARDONING OF THE TURKEYS. THE FIRST YEAR HE WAS EXCITED. AS HE GOES, BY THE END HE IS LIKE, WHATEVER. WHY AM I DOING THIS? WHATEVER. TATER AND TOT WERE PARDONED TODAY. >>THAT’S MY ONE MORE THING TODAY.>>THANKS FOR SAYING SO. I’M GOING — >>GOOD THING WE’RE NOT LIVE.>>WHAT A SPOILER. LISTEN, OVER AT THE LATE SHOW, STEVEN COLBERT HAS BEEN UPSET.>>THERE WERE NO THIGHS?>>WHY ARE THERE NO THIGHS?>>THE WAY IT WAS SOLD WAS THE BREAST AND THE WINGS. >>YOU GOT RIPPED OFF. I APOLOGIZE. CAN WE GET A NUMBER? WE WILL SEND YOU OUT A FRESH TURKEY WITH THIGHS. THAT’S NOT RIGHT. >>THIS IS REALLY A QUESTION ABOUT STUFFING.>>OKAY. DO YOU CALL IT STUFFING OR DRESSING?>>I CALL IT STUFFING.>>OKAY. WRONG ANSWER. BYE-BYE.>>HE IS HILARIOUS. I THOUGHT — I LIKED IT. I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY. >>ARE THOSE REAL PEOPLE CALLING IN. >>I THINK SO. THAT’S WHY IT’S FUNNY. >>THAT POOR LADY. >>STEVEN COLBERT IS LEFT OF LETTERMAN.

EVEN THOUGH HIS RATINGS, HE IS SECOND IN LATE NIGHT. I DON’T KNOW WHY HE DECIDED TO LEAVE 50% OF AMERICA OUT.>>YOU WANT TO POUR COLD WATER ON ANYTHING ELSE? ANYTHING ELSE TO ADD?>>YOU CAN TAKE MY ONE MORE THING. >>I WILL COME UP WITH A NEW ONE ON THE FLY. IT’S OKAY.>>I WILL TAKE THAT ONE AND YOU CAN TAKE MINE. >>I’M SCARD — >>WHAT ARE YOUR WEEKEND PLANS?>>I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT ERIC’S WEEKEND PLANS COMING UP NEXT.>>WHAT DO YOU KNOW?>>>IT’S TIME FOR ONE MORE THING.>>DO YOU WANT MINE?>>HERE WE GO. >>I’M GOING TO DO YOURS.

WHEN YOU CROSS A TURKEY WITH A BANJO?>>DELIVERANCE?>>IT’S A TURKEY THAT CAN PLUCK ITSELF.>>THEY TOLD US TO LAUGH. WE’RE LAUGHING.>>THAT’S NOT EVEN APPROPRIATE. >>THAT’S A GOOD ONE.>>THEY WILL CUT IT FOR THE WEST COAST.>>WHAT CAN I SAY, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN?>>ALL RIGHT, DANA.

A SHOUTOUT TO JUSTIN LEWIS IN GEORGIA WHO IS 11. SECONDLY, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SETTING UP MY ONE MORE THING. TODAY WAS THE EIGHTH AND FINAL TURKEY PARDON OF TATER AND TOT. I WILL NOT GO INTO MUCH DETAIL EXCEPT TO SAY THAT THIS YEAR THE PRESIDENT WAS JOINED BY HIS NEPHEWS BECAUSE HIS DAUGHTERS — THEY DON’T WANT TO BE AROUND HIM WITH THE CORNY JOKES WHICH WE WILL SHOW YOU RIGHT NOW. HE HAD A MESSAGE FOR HIS DAUGHTERS BECAUSE THEY DECIDED TO DISS THEIR FATHER. >>THANKFUL THAT THIS IS MY FINAL PRESIDENTIAL TURKEY PARDON. WHAT I HAVEN’T TOLD THEM YET IS THAT WE ARE GOING DO THIS EVERY YEAR FROM NOW ON. NO WAY I’M CUTTING THIS HABIT COLD TURKEY.>>DANA IS — >>PRETTY GOOD.>>YOU ARE ALL ALONE.

YOUR BOOK WAS EVERYWHERE I WENT. VILLAGES, THE AIRPORT, IN THE STORES.>>WELL THAT’S BAD NEWS. THAT MEANS — >>IT WAS PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED AND FOR GOOD REASON. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>CONGRATULATIONS. I KNOW THAT WAS A REALLY IMPORTANT PROJECT FOR YOU. GREAT JOB. THAT’S IT FOR US. WE WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY AND SAFE THANKSGIVING. WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US TOMORROW AT 5:00 P.M. EASTERN FOR OUR THANKSGIVING SPECIAL. “SPECIAL REPORT” NEXT.>>>PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP PULLS THE TRIGGER ON TWO MORE MAJOR PLAYERS IN HIS NEW ADMINISTRATION, AND THEY ARE NOT FROM THE GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB. THIS IS “SPECIAL REPORT.” GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO WASHINGTON. SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR NIKKI HALEY AND CHARTER SCHOOLS ADVOCATE BETSY DEVOS HAVE REASON TO BE THANKFUL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. HALEY WILL BE THE NEW AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N. DEVOS WILL RUN THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT. THEY JOIN POMPEO, SESSIONS AND FLYNN IN THE GROWP ADMINISTRATION. PETER DUCEY IS IN FLORIDA WITH DETAILS.>>Reporter: GOOD EVENING. THE PRESIDENT-ELECT’S CABINET WILL NOT JUST BE FILLED WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED HIM FROM THE START. HE IS ADDING CRITICS, FRIENDS AND SOME OTHERS THAT ARE IMPRESSING EVEN HIS MOST BITTER RIVALS. THE MAN TRUMP ONCE CALLED LOW ENERGY HAD HIGH PRAISE FOR ONE OF HIS NOMINEES TODAY. JEB BUSH TWEETED, QUOTE, BETSY DEVOS IS AN OUTSTANDING PICK FOR SECRETARY OF EDUCATION. MR. TRUMP HAS A ROLE IN MIND FOR AT LEAST ONE OF THE OTHER PEOPLE HE BEAT IN THE PRIMARY, HE ASKED DR. BEN CARSON TO SERVE AS HUD SECRETARY. HE THINKS HE HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO CLEAN UP INNER CITIES BUT HAS NOT DEFINITELY ACCEPTED THE JOB. THE PRESIDT TAPPED NIKKI HALEY WHO WAS A MAJOR DETRACTOR AS RECENTLY AS A FEW MONTHS AGO TO SERVE AS THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N. ANOTHER OF 2016’S FIERCEST CRITICS, MITT ROMNEY IS STILL UNDER CONSIDERATION TO BE THE NEXT SECRETARY OF STATE. THAT BOTHERS EARLY TRUMP BACKER MIKE HUCKABEE WHO THINKS A ROMNEY APOLOGY IS IN ORDER.>>HE ATTACKS HIM ON A PERSONAL LEVEL ABOUT HIS CHARACTER, INTEGRITY, HIS HONOR. THERE’S ONE WAY THAT I THINK MITT ROMNEY COULD EVEN BE CONSIDERED FOR A POST LIKE THAT. THAT IS THAT HE GOES TO A MICROPHONE IN A PUBLIC PLACE AND REPUDIATES EVERYTHING HE SAID AND EVERYTHING HE SAID AFTER THAT.>>Reporter: THE NEXT PRESIDENT PRESENTED NEW POSITIONS ON SOME MAJOR POLICIES, INCLUDING GLOBAL WARMING. BACK IN 2012, HE SAID, QUOTE, THE CONCEPT OF GLOBAL WARMING WAS CREATED BY AND FOR THE CHINESE TO MAKE U.S. MANUFACTURING NON-COMPETITIVE. IN RESPONSE TO A QUESTION TUESDAY ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT HUMANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CLIMB MAT CHANGE, TRUMP REPLIED, I THINK THERE IS SOME CONNECTIVITY. MR. TRUMP SEEMS TO HAVE ADJUSTED HIS STANCE ON WATER BOARDING. DURING THE CAMPAIGN, HE SAID THIS.>>WATER BOARDING IS FINE. BUT IT’S NOT NEARLY TOUGH ENOUGH. OKAY?>>Reporter: NOW HIS POSITION IS MORE IN LINE WITH THE MAN WHO COULD BE HIS NEXT DEFENSE SECRETARY.>>GENERAL MATTIS A STRONG, HIGHLY DIGNIFIED MAN. I MET WITH HIM AT LENGTH AND I ASKED HIM THAT QUESTION. I SAID, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WATERBOARDING? HE SAID, I NEVER FOUND IT TO BE USEFUL.>>Reporter: SOMEONE ELSE ADDED HIS NAME TO THE LIST OF HIGHLY DECORATED OFFICIALS READY TO SERVE, GENERAL DAVID PETRAEUS.>>I’VE BEEN IN A POSITION BEFORE WHERE A PRESIDENT HAS TURNED TO ME IN THE OVAL OFFICE IN A DIFFICULT MOMENT AND TURNED WITHOUT ANY PLEASANTRIES AND SAID I’M ASKING YOU AS YOUR PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF TO TAKE COMMAND OF THE INTERNATIONAL SECURITY FORCE IN AFGHANISTAN. THE ONLY RESPONSE CAN BE, YES, MR. PRESIDENT. >>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT-ELECT RELEASED A THANKSGIVING MESSAGE WHERE HE SAYS HE KNOWS THAT SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE ARE STILL UPSET ABOUT THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION AND HE KNOWS THAT RAW EMOTION WILL NOT HEAL OVERNIGHT BUT THAT HE HOPES WHILE FOLKS ARE TOGETHER OVER THE HOLIDAYS THEY CAN FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MOVE ON SO THE COUNTRY CAN MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER.>>PETER DOOCY IN PALM BEACH TONIGHT. THANK YOU.>>>WHEN HALEY WAS ANNOUNCED, SHE BECAME THE FIRST FEMALE AND FIRST MINORITY TO BE NOMINATED TO A CABINET LEVEL POSITION IN THE NEW ADMINISTRATION. TONIGHT, WE LEARN MORE ABOUT THE GOVERNOR FROM KRISTEN FISHER.>>Reporter: WHEN NIKKI HALEY WAS SWORN IN, SHE BECAME THE STATE’S FIRST FEMALE GOVERNOR. TODAY SHE BECAME THE FIRST WOMAN TO BE TAPPED FOR A TOP LEVEL POST IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. IN A STATEMENT SHE SAID — HER LAST TWO YEARS AS GOVERNOR MADE HER A ROLE MODEL FOR RACIAL RECONCILIATION, SOMETHING WITH WHICH MR. TRUMP CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE. IN 2015, SHE WAS PRAISED FOR HOW SHE HANDLED THE MASS SHOOTING OF NINE BLACK PARISHIONERS IN A CHURCH. THE NEXT MONTH SHE SIGNED A BILL TO REMOVE THE CONFEDERATE FLAG FROM THE STATE’S CAPITAL.>>THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IS COMING OFF THE GROUNDS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA STATE HOUSE. >>Reporter: THAT LED TO THE REPUBLICAN RESPONSE TO THE STATE OF THE UNION. SHE TOOK A SWIPE AT THEN CANDIDATE DONALD TRUMP.>>DURING ANXIOUS TIMES, IT CAN BE TEMPTING TO FOLLOW THE SIREN CALL OF THE ANGRIEST VOICES. WE MUST RESIST THAT TEMPTATION.>>Reporter: IN FEBRUARY, SHE WAS AN AGGRESSIVE SURROGATE FOR MARCO RUBIO.>>DONALD TRUMP IS EVERYTHING I TAUGHT MY CHILDREN NOT TO DO IN KINDERGARTEN. I TAUGHT MY TWO LITTLE ONES, YOU DON’T LIE AND MAKE THINGS UP.>>Reporter: BY MARCH SHE HAD BECOME ONE OF TRUMP’S TARGETS ON TWITTER.>>Reporter: BY THE TIME IT WAS OVER, SHE HAD BECOME A ROLE MODEL, THIS TIME FOR RECONCILIATION WITHIN HER OWN PARTY. >>I WON’T PRETEND TO HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PRESIDENT-ELECT’S BIGGEST CHEERLEADER, I DID VOTE FOR HIM. AND I WAS ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO SEE HIM WIN.>>Reporter: IN A STATEMENT TODAY ANNOUNCING HER NOMINATION, PRESIDENT-ELECT SAID GOVERNOR HALEY HAS A TRACK RECORD OF BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER. SHE’S A PROVEN DEAL MAKER. WE LOOK TO MAKE PLENTY OF DEALS. AT FIRST, THE GOVERNOR OF SOUTH CAROLINA MIGHT SEEM LIKE AN ODD CHOICE FOR AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N. SHE DOESN’T HAVE A TON OF FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE. HER STATE IS HOME TO A GROWING NUMBER OF COMPANIES WITH CLIENTS ALL OVER THE WORLD LIKE BOEING AND BMW.>>THANK YOU.>>>THERE ARE INCREASING CONCERNS TONIGHT ABOUT WHAT THE PRESIDENT-ELECT COULD, WOULD OR SHOULD DO ABOUT A BUSINESS EMPIRE THAT MANY FEEL CREATES A CONFLICT OF INTEREST WITH HIS NEW JOB. ED HENRY LOOKS INTO THAT TONIGHT.>>Reporter: EVEN AS PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP INSISTED HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT HOTEL OCCUPANCY RATES OR MAKING MORE MONEY, HE WAS DEFIANT IN AN INTERVIEW WITH THE “NEW YORK TIMES” ABOUT NOT COMPLETELY DISENGAGING FROM HIS BUSINESS EMPIRE.>>THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS ALLOWED TO HAVE WHATEVER CONFLICTS HE OR SHE WANTS. I DON’T WANT TO GO BY THAT.>>Reporter: MR. TRUMP ADDS, AS FAR AS THE YOU KNOW POTENTIAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST, I KNOW THE LAW IS TOTALLY ON MY SIDE. MEANING THE PRESIDENT CAN’T HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST. FOR MR. TRUMP’S CRITICS, THAT SOUNDS CLOSE TO WHAT FORMER PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON INFAMOUSLY TOLD DAVID FROST WHEN HE DECLARED WHEN THE PRESIDENT DOES IT, THAT MEANS IT’S NOT ILLEGAL. IT’S A 180 FOR MR. TRUMP WHO SAID BACK IN JANUARY THERE WOULD BE A TOTAL SEPARATION FROM HIS BUSINESS IF HE GOT ELECTED.>>I WOULD PROBABLY HAVE MY CHILDREN RUN IT WITH MY EXECUTIVES. AND I WOULDN’T EVER BE INVOLVED BECAUSE I WOULDN’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING BUT OUR COUNTRY. ANYTHING.>>Reporter: WHILE HIS SON ERIC SUGGESTED EARLIER THIS MONTH ALL OF THE CHILDREN WOULD BE TAKING ON A MUCH LARGER ROLE AT THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION.>>ONE OF THE FORTUNATE THINGS FOR MY FATHER IS THAT HE WAS ABLE TO STEP OUT OF THE COMPANY TO RUN FOR COMMANDER IN CHIEF AND I THINK HE WILL RELY ON US MORE THAN EVER. >>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT-ELECT SUGGESTED OTHERWISE TO THE “NEW YORK TIMES,” THAT HE IS NOT PULLING BACK FROM THE COMPANY EVEN AS HE INSISTED HE WILL NOT BE FOCUSING ON PROPERTIES LIKE HIS NEW LUXURY HOTEL IN WASHINGTON. MR. TRUMP NOTED HE HAS MORE PRESSING BUSINESS A FEW BLOCKS FURTHER UP PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE. THOUGH FOREIGN DIPLOMATS ARE SNAPPING UP HOTEL ROOMS LEAVING THE DNC SAYING HE INTENDS TO EXPAND HIS FAMILY’S WEALTH.>>I MIGHT HAVE BROUGHT IT UP. NOT HAVING DO WITH ME, JUST — THE WIND IS A VERY DECEIVING THING. WE DON’T MAKE WINDMILLS IN THE UNITED STATES.>>Reporter: HE DEFENDED A MEETING WITH BUSINESS PARTNERS IN INDIA SAYING HE WAS TAKING PHOTOS WITH FRIENDS AND IS ENTITLED TO BE A HUMAN BEING. A BROADER QUESTION IS HOW MUCH TIME HIS BUSINESS DISTRACTS FROM HIS LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.>>ED HENRY IN WASHINGTON, THANK YOU.>>>LET’S FIND OUT HOW PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP IS DOING SO FAR. ACCORDING TO CONSERVATIVES. MICHAEL NEEDHAM IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER. GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>GREAT TO BE HERE.>>I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE MOST RECENT PICKS. LET’S START OFF WITH BETSY DEVOS.>>I THINK IT’S AN EXCITING PICK. SHE’S A STRONG SUPPORTER OF SCHOOL CHOICE. WE’RE EXCITED. SHE WILL DO A GOOD JOB. IT’S A SIGN THAT PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WHO I THINK RAN AS THE STRONGEST PRO-SCHOOL CHOICE CANDIDATE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS EVER HAD IS COMMITTED TO THAT POLICY PRIORITY. IT’S VERY EXCITING.>>LET’S MOVE ON TO NIKKI HALEY, THE U.N. AMBASSADOR, GOVERNOR OF SOUTH CAROLINA.>>I THINK SHE’S AN INCREDIBLE FACE FOR THE UNITED STATES. SHE WILL BE A GREAT AMBASSADOR. WHEN YOU THINK OF THE JOB OF A GOVERNOR, A GOVERNOR LOOKS AT ALL SORTS OF INTERESTS, THE INTERESTS THAT ARE OUT AND GET THINGS DONE. THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN AMBASSADOR. I THINK SHE WILL BE INCREDIBLE.>>THERE’S ONE POTENTIAL CONFLICT THERE. IT HAS TO DO WITH TRADE. WE HEARD ALL ABOUT DONALD TRUMP’S HARD LINE STANCE ON TRADE. SOUTH CAROLINA IS A STATE WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY BUSTING AT THE SEAMS WITH GROWTH IN LARGE PART BECAUSE OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE. BMW AND OTHER FOREIGN CAR MANUFACTURERS MOVING THERE. YOU HAVE A BUSTLING PORT CITY THERE. YOU HAVE BOEING, WHICH HAS BUILT THE NEW DREAM LINER PLANT AND EXPANDING THAT PLANT AS WE SPEAK. IT’S EXPORTING A LOT OF AIRPLANES TO COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA. I WAS INVOLVED IN A BACKGROUND DISCUSSION WITH A VERY HIGH LEVEL SENIOR EXECUTIVE AT BOEING LAST MAY. HERE IS WHAT HE SAID ABOUT TRUMP’S TRADE PLAN. QUOTE, WE JUST RECENTLY ANNOUNCED THAT WE’RE GOING TO OPEN A 737 FINISHING FACILITY IN CHINA. THE FACT THAT WE’RE OPENING A FINISHING CENTER IN CHINA ALLOWS US TO SELL MORE 737s IN CHINA WHICH ALLOWS US TO GROW U.S. JOBS. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT?>>YOU KNOW, I THINK PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT IT IN “THE NEW YORK TIMES” INTERVIEW YESTERDAY THAT YOU MENTIONED EARLIER. HE SAID HE WILL HAVE COMPANIES BUILD FACTORIES AND BRING JOBS BACK TO AMERICA BY HAVING A ROBUST PRO-GROWTH ECONOMY, BY CUTTING TAXES, CUTTING BACK ON REGULATIONS. I THINK THAT’S THE APPROACH THAT REALLY UNITES PEOPLE ON THESE ISSUES. YOU ARE RIGHT, GOVERNOR HALEY WAS AN INCREDIBLE JOBS GOVERNOR. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ASPIRING TO BE A PRESIDENT WHO BRINGS LOTS OF JOBS BACK HERE. THERE’S MORE ALIGNMENT HERE THAN IT MAY APPEAR. >>ANY STORM CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON THAT YOU SEE?>>YOU KNOW, NOT REALLY. THIS TRANSITION HAS GONE VERY, VERY STRONGLY. THERE’S IMPORTANT POINTS TO MAKE. THEN THE REAL WORK STARTS ON JANUARY 20th WHEN HE GETS SWORN IN. GETTING EXECUTIVE ORDERS DONE, MAKING SURE WE RESPECT RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES. GETTING THE EPA TO ROLL BACK HUGE EXPANSIONS PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS DONE. THE REAL WORK STARTS JANUARY 20th. ALL THE SIGNS ARE POSITIVE.>>I WANT TO ASK ABOUT ANOTHER POTENTIAL PICK AT THIS POINT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MITT ROMNEY AS THE POTENTIAL SECRETARY OF STATE. IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS THE FRONT RUNNER. RUDY GIULIANI IN THE RUNNING. LISTEN TO WHAT NEWT GINGRICH SAID WHEN HE SPOKE TO TUCKER CARLSON ABOUT THIS LAST NIGHT. >>ROMNEY WANTED TO BE IN PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP’S JOB. TO WHAT DEGREE WOULD ROMNEY ONCE HE BECAME SECRETARY OF STATE REPRESENT HIMSELF AROUND THE WORLD? TRUMP HAS TO HAVE SOMEBODY WHO IS VERY TOUGH AND VERY WILLING TO TAKE ON FOREIGN LEADERS.>>IS ROMNEY THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE JOB?>>I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT. THAT’S A CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP. IF MITT ROMNEY WERE SETTING OF STATE, HE WOULD REPRESENT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, HE WOULD REPRESENT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I DON’T THINK IT’S FAIR TO IMPLY OTHERWISE. THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY PERSONAL CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP. HE HAS A LONGSTANDING RELATIONSHIP WITH MAYOR GIULIANI. OBVIOUSLY, THERE WOULD BE SOME STRONG SIGNALS SENT ABOUT UNITY ON THE RIGHT TO SELECT ROMNEY. I THINK THEY BOTH WILL BE IN THE RUNNING. THAT’S A CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP.>>I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT ONE MORE THING. THE NUCLEAR OPTION. SOME PEOPLE SAY HARRY REID SOLD THE WIND AND MAY BE REAPING THE WHIRLWIND AS A RESULT OF THAT. DO YOU EXPECT TO KEEP THAT IN EFFECT IN. >>I THINK FIRST OF ALL, PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP IS GOING TO NOMINATE SOMEBODY FROM HIS LIST. IT WILL BE EXCITING. IT WILL BE IMPORTANT FOR THE SUPREME COURT. THERE’S OTHER WAYS TO MAKE SURE THAT PERSON GETS ACROSS. THERE’S SOMETHING CALLED THE TWO SPEECH RULE IN THE SENATE WHICH MAKES SURE NO SENATOR IS ALLOWED TO GIVE MORE THAN TWO SPEECHES IN THE COURSE OF A FILIBUSTER. I THINK THE FILIBUSTER HAS PROVEN TO BE AN IMPORTANT MECHANISM IN THE PAST. IT SAVES CONSERVATIVES FROM OUTRAGEOUS THINGS THAT OBAMA AND OTHER LIBERALS COULD HAVE DONE. WE SHOULD DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO PRESERVE THE FILIBUSTER WHILE MAKING SURE THAT HARRY REID ISN’T ALLOWED TO BLOCK SOMEBODY FROM THE COURT. THE TWO SPEECH RULE MAY BE THE BEST WAY. >>IS IT A POTENTIAL SLEDGEHAMMER THAT McCONNELL HOLDS OVER THE HEADS OF DEMOCRATS SHOULD THEY MAKE THINGS ROUGH FOR SUPREME COURT NOMINEES OR FOR JEFF SESSIONS?>>IT’S DEFINITELY A SLEDGEHAMMER. I THINK THAT IT’S REPORTED THAT THE MAJORITY LEADER McCONNELL MADE IT CLEAR TO HARRY REID THAT THE NOMINEE WILL GET ON THE COURT. WE SHOULD DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO ACHIEVE BOTH GOALS. YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT OBAMA COULD HAVE DONE FOR THE LAST SIX YEARS WITHOUT THE FILIBUSTER, IT’S SCARY.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>>WE ARE NOW TWO WEEKS PAST THE ELECTION. BUT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON SEEING HILLARY CLINTON IN THE WHITE HOUSE. IT HAS TO DO WITH THE FOLKS WHO HAVE THE REAL FINAL SAY ON WHO GETS TO BE PRESIDENT. MIKE EMANUEL EXPLAINS TONIGHT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.>>Reporter: MANY DEMOCRATS ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY LETTING GO AFTER ELECTION DAY. EVEN THOUGH HILLARY CLINTON CONCEDED THE RACE.>>WE MUST ACCEPT THIS RESULT AND THEN LOOK TO THE FUTURE. DONALD TRUMP IS GOING TO BE OUR PRESIDENT.>>Reporter: CLINTON SUPPORTERS NOTE SHE WON THE POPULAR VOTE AND EARNED 232 ELECTORAL VOTES. SOME SUGGESTED DEMOCRATS COULD WIN OVER 38 MORE, CLINTON COULD STILL BE THE 45th PRESIDENT. THEY POINT TO THE FACT ONLY 25 STATE AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA REQUIRE THEIR ELECTORS TO BACK THE WINNER OF THE STATE’S POPULAR VOTE. JILL STEIN CALLED FOR RECOUNTS IN WISCONSIN, MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA. JOSH EARNEST TOLD DEMOCRATS YESTERDAY, IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON.>>THE ELECTION IS OVER. THE DEBATE ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THAT ELECTION HAS BEEN RESOLVED. THE PRESIDENT IS FOLLOWING THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FULFILLING HIS RESPONSIBILITY. >>Reporter: ERNEST CONFIRMED THE PRESIDENT AND PRESIDENT-ELECT HAVE SPOKEN BY PHONE SINCE THE OVAL OFFICE MEETING. RETIRING CALIFORNIA SENATOR BARBARA BOXER AND CHARLES WRANGLE HAVE PROPOSED LEGISLATION TO SCRAP THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE SYSTEM. HARRY REID HAS CALLED FOR HEARINGS LOOKING INTO THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE.>>IT’S UNUSUAL IN SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, AND THIS YOUNG CENTURY, WE HAVE HAD TWO ELECTIONS WHERE THE LOSER GOT MORE VOTES THAN THE WINNER. I THINK IT’S SOMETHING WE SHOULD LOOK AT.>>Reporter: A RETIRED OHIO DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN AND FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR SAYS PARTY LEADERS OUGHT TO BLAME THEMSELVES.>>I THINK THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOST ITS BEARINGS YEARS AGO WHEN IT STARTED TO TAKE MONEY FROM CORPORATIONS, CORPORATE INTERESTED. >>Reporter: LAST WEEK CLINTON CALLED ON HER SUPPORTERS TO FIGHT FOR THEIR VALUES. >>I ASK YOU TO STAY ENGAGED, STAY ENGAGED ON EVERY LEVEL. WE NEED YOU. AMERICA NEEDS YOU. YOUR ENERGY, YOUR AMBITION, YOUR TALENT. THAT’S HOW WE GET THROUGH THIS.>>Reporter: WHITE HOUSE VIEW IS COME JANUARY 20th, THERE WILL BE A NEW PRESIDENT. A KEY RESPONSIBILITY IN THE REMAINING DAYS IS MAKING SURE MR. TRUMP AND HIS TEAM ARE READY TO ASSUME POWER.>>MIKE EMANUEL ON THE NORTH LAWN. THANK YOU.>>>STOCKS WERE MIXED TODAY. THE DOW FINISHED AHEAD 59 FOR A RECORD CLOSE AGAIN. THE S&P 500 ALSO UP TWO. THAT’S A RECORD AS WELL. NASDAQ FELL SIX.>>>COMING UP NEXT, TEAM COVERAGE OF THIS MASSIVE HOLIDAY WEEKEND AND CONCERNS OVER TERRORISM. HERE IS WHAT SOME OF OUR AFFILIATES ARE COVERING. CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR McCOREY ADDS 22 MORE COUNTIES OVER THE EMERGENCY OF WILDFIRES. THAT BRINGS THE TOTAL TO 47 COUNTIES. MIAMI, GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT HAS LIFTED A PORTION OF THE ZIKA ACTIVE TRANSMISSION ZONE. IT HAS BEEN 45 DAYS SINCE AN ACTIVE ZIKA CASE WAS CONTRACTED IN THAT AREA OF MIAMI BEACH.
