colombians reach a peace agreement. i'm natalie allen. >> i'm george howell, newsroom starts now. it is 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. donald trump's spokeswoman says a decision on the white house chief of staff is imminent. the two likely choices adviser steve bannon and republican national committee chair reince priebus. the chief of staff is an important position because it controls who sees the president of the united states. >> anti-trump demonstrators, meantime, have been out in force for the fourth straight day, thousands filling the streets of portland, oregon, yet again on saturday along with a large presence of riot police. portland, has seen dozens of arrests over the past three nights including 19 tonight. >> protests continued in new york. thousands of people marched to trump tower saturday chanting
anti-trump slogans. >> our brynn gingras is there as thousands of disgruntled people voiced their opposition. >> reporter: thousands of people shut down fifth avenue in new york city with a clear message for president-elect donald trump. they marched from union square up fifth avenue about two miles right to the tower here behind me standing together say they are against what the president-elect campaigned on. several issues but most of them to defy the hate they say he fostered throughout that campaign. listen to what some people said was the reason they individually came out here. >> this is big. definitely. i don't know what we can actually do to change things. but we just have to keep coming out and making sure that his hatred and his fear and the anger that he is stirring up or using to get elected doesn't manifest itself in our country.
>> what do you think the collective message is? >> i think we're getting together to support each other as a community because this is a huge loss. this election has set us back and has definitely shown the world that we are not as advanced as we claim we are. >> reporter: this protest lasted several hours and for the most part was pretty peaceful. nypd officers actually walked alongside them that two-mile stretch. we know from the secret service, authorities inside trump tower at one point because the protest was so large, visitors, tourists who are usually able to get inside trump tower were not allowed and people not allowed to leave for safety purposes. at this point, we don't know exact number of arrests from this particular protest, but they were pretty peaceful and minimal arrests. back to you. >> good to hear. the people still on the streets. the president-elect will be
filling many more positions, but frontrunners have been raising eyebrows in washington. our jim execute chute owe looks at the early short list. rudy giuliani now helping to lead trump's transition team. >> donald has been my friend for 28 years. my work on behalf of him has been out of great loyalty and friendship to him. i can see already how he is going to be a great president. i'm glad i could play a small role. >> before the election dozens of gop national security officials and experts declared in two separate letters they would never work for a trump administration. sources tell cnn that many of those so-called never trumpers are coming back, even offering mea culpas. even the most national security circle will be led by advisers who had unwavering support. >> the next president of the united states, donald trump.
>> giuliani, possible for secretary of state, chief of staff and telling cnn on thursday, attorney general. >> i certainly have the energy and there's probably nobody that knows the justice department better than me. >> senator jeff sessions. >> donald, welcome to my hometown, mobile, alabama. >> a transition team leader and one of the first gop senators to back trump is also likely to land a plum job. including possibly secretary of defense. >> donald j. trump to be the next president of the united states. >> retired general michael flynn offered trump vociferous support and hillary clinton vociferous criticism throughout the campaign including, you decide. nypd blows whistle on new hillary e-mails. money laundering, sex crimes with children, et cetera. must read. allegations that remain unsubstantiated. he's a possibility for senior posts, including national security adviser.
his new postings will send the world revealing signals about his new foreign policy. trump said he wasn't looking for people with the usual backgrounds. >> i also look and have to look for talented experts with approaches and practical ideas rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect resumes. >> campaign aides like kellyanne conway could earn major roles in the administration. we don't know who will be the speaker who faces the press every day. that would be a good job. >> important job. >> turkey paid close attention to this election. so did countries all around the world. turkey is a member of nato and a crucial ally in the fight against isis. >> as cnn's will ripley reports, turkey's government is especially interested in what donald trump does about one particular issue. >> first, the coup. then the purge.
four months after soldiers tried and failed to take over the turkish government, a staggering roundup. tens of thousands of soldiers, professors, lawmakers, even journalists, many accused of ties to one man. muslim cleric gu lan. turkey wants him extradited. accusing him much masterminding the coup. he says there's no proof. so far the u.s. has allowed him to remain in pennsylvania, his home for more than 15 years. >> you have no choice. >> that could change under president-elect donald trump. one of his top military advisers, lieutenant general michael flynn rote an op-ed last week comparing him to osama bin laden. calling for his extradition. >> he must be captured and arrested and he must be put into the court. >> professor hasan bassry, istanbul -- says the extradition would infuriate the cleric's followers but greatly improve
ties between turkey and the u.s. >> this is going to be a really good message for turkey. it's going to show that the united states is ready to work with turkey against any kind of terrorism. >> he's pro government and says turkey will try to convince trump to stop supporting kurdish militias -- turkey considers them terrorists. in this primarily muslim nation, many see donald trump as islamaphobic and turkish president erdogan called for a name change at trump towers istanbul after there was a ban on muslims entering the u.s. still it seems erdogan is willing to put it all aside. he was among the first world leaders to call and congratulate trump. they did not talk about growing human rights concerns over erdogan's ongoing post coup purge of political opponents. trump has said the u.s. should focus on its own problems and not criticize other countries.
on the streets of turkey, like everywhere else, a sense of uncertainty. >> i'm afraid for muslims. >> why? >> i don't feel good. i'm afraid for my family. i don't like his way when he speak. >> but we will see what he will do in the world. >> right now, nobody really knows what that world will look like. will ripley, cnn, istanbul. >> there is a great deal of uncertainty. the coming days will be very important to reveal what a trump administration will look like and give some clues to these world leaders that have questions. still ahead here on newsroom, france is remembering the lives of those lost last year. the terror attack in paris. more on the commemorations in a live report from the french capital. also ahead, the colombian government and the rebels signed a revised peace deal to end more than half a century of fighting. the world is full of surprising moments.

(bing) welcome back to "cnn newsroom." i'm george howell. there's a great deal of uncertainty about what a trump administration would look like. to talk more about this, let's bring in politics reporter gene scott live via satellite. gene, always a pleasure to have you. let's talk about the chief of staff announcement. it seems to be a horse race
between steve bannon and reince priebus. explain to our viewers how one is a safe pick and one might be a rogue pick if these are indeed the two choices. >> reporter: indeed. reince priebus is someone who is closer to mainstream cons certificate self-tichl, familiar with the relationships that mr. trump lacks or at least lacked when he launched his campaign needed to work with government locally and federally. there's a lot of support for that. but steve bannon is head of this major media organization that was very much responsible for donald trump's success. one of the groups that got him to the top were white working class voters, regular readers of breitbart. this is indicative of what direction he's hoping to take his presidency. >> which ever direction he takes, he'll be leading a
country that's very much divided. is it possible to show some of the images of the protests we've seen in the past couple of days in many different cities, in portland, oregon, in new york. many different cities having these protests, people on the streets saying that this is not my president. many of these people who did not vote for trump, some who didn't vote at all, we understand. the question, has donald trump responded to them in a manner that would indicate that, yes, he will be a person who unites a divided nation? >> reporter: well, the president-elect has responded positively and his initial response was to dismiss them as professional protesters incited by the mainstream media. that was in the middle of the night at some of the first protests, some that we saw in portland. but he eventually praised them, called them a small minority or praised their passion for america and their activism. to be fair, president-elect repeatedly said that he wants to be the president of all
americans and wants to work with people outside of his support system to get the policy ideas moved forward that he thinks will be most helpful. >> eugene, i'd like to talk about turkey. we had a story here a short time ago in the show about how turkey is feeling out what it will mean for bilateral relations with a president trump. as you wrote in your article on cnn.com, turkey still put out a warning to its citizens about traveling to the u.s. keep in mind that the u.s. did the same thing due to concerns about terrorism. just tell us more about that article that you wrote. >> reporter: i think what the foreign affairs office of turkey was trying to do was send a warning to turkish americans -- i'm sorry. turkish visitors to america. you see that these protests rrnt isolated to one city. some of them have been violent and there have been arrests. although the overwhelming majority have been peaceful.
the turkish government was trying to protest its citizens. it was issued weeks after the u.s. government said something comparable to the american visitors to turkey following the history of terrorist attacks and increased activity from terrorist groups. this election definitely has gotten international response as many of your viewers are aware. >> the optic for people looking at what seems to be hit for tat. they're making it clear that there are concerns for travel because there are so many protests. eugene scott. thanks for being with us. take you now to paris. music filled the bataclan concert haul for the first time since the terror attacks. a special performance by sting marked a reowning.
♪ ♪ ♪ >> i get chills hearing that song. it's a beautiful song by sting. opening, reopening the bataclan. a year ago terrorists stormed the bataclan and they opened fire in the crowd and killed dozens of people there. it was part of a coordinated attack on the french capital that killed 130 people. a minute of silence was held before the concert, of course, to honor the victims. joining now from central paris, melissa bell at the republique and jim bittermann live at the bataclan theater. jim, we'll start with you. we heard the song there with sting, a moment of silence and
also mentioning that they will not forget, no one will forget the people who were killed in this terrible attack. >> reporter: that's right, george. the 90 people killed here at the bataclan just moments ago by president hollande, they came as they've done to the other sites that were attacked on one year ago. they read the names of all 90 victims that were killed here and then observed a moment of silence and later -- no speeches. we talked about earlier, with one of the ministers involved with the planning for this. she said we don't want any political around this. she said that not everybody wanted to come back for this event. not all of them wanted to be here. it was too moving. here's the way she put it. >> some victims that i know, the
children to go -- not to be in paris during this day because it's going to be too difficult for them to remember this terrible attack. >> nonetheless, there were a number of people, probably several hundred people here. some of them victims and victims' families. some of the first responders who were here on that night one year ago. while we couldn't see their faces, in fact they asked us not to take pictures of their faces, we saw from the body language behind, people were quite emotional and embracing each other. it has been a somber, emotional time here, george. >> we can understand that, jim and everyone is different. some people can come and some don't want to be anywhere near it. let's go over to melissa bell at the republique where so many gathered to show their respects.
>> reporter: this place has largely been cleared since the memorial sprung up -- people are beginning to mill around. flowers have been put down. the atmosphere here really is very subdued. this was an attack that profoundly shocked them. they had "charlie hebdo" months before when the journalists were attacked in their newsroom. this shows a coordinated nature of the attack. it targeted young people out enjoying themselves in cafes and restaurants in the bataclan that you saw a moment ago, it's left the city in shock. one year ago, still 20 victims in hospital recovering from their wounds. a city that is still profoundly traumatized by what happened a year ago. a great deal of anger about what went on with many french people feeling that their government simply hasn't done enough, natalie to protect them since
the terrible events of a year ago. since, of course, we've been through it again on the 14th of july with the attacks. >> melissa, i'd like to switch over to jim to ask the same point that you point out. jim, from your experience in reporting, is there a sense that the government is doing enough or is able to get a handle on things like this to prevent them? >> reporter: well, after the horrible attacks here, george, it was followed by the july 14th attacks down in nice. i think that really shocked people and set people back. they thought things were handled because they were under a state of emergency, that the government was clamping down. yet july 14th happened. there were several other attacks and attempted attacks in the days since. so i don't think people really necessarily feel that they're all that secure. in fact, it kind of breaks down along political lines. if you're a supporter of the government, and left side, if
you survey those people, 60% say they feel more secure now and secure enough. if you talk to people on the right, however, they feel that the government hasn't done enough and things could be better, better prepared for what could be another attack down the line. george? >> back to melissa. melissa, with the news reporting there in paris, what have you heard from the victims who survived this? what have they said about the trauma that they're experiencing from this? >> reporter: we've met a number of them that have turned to words to try and express really what they've been going through. they've also, a number of them mentioned to us it's really only other victims, firsthand victims, those who lost loved ones or in the bataclan on that terrible night and lived tluf what looked like a war zone that can really relate to what went on. they've reached out to one another regularly. they've formed clubs and associations to talk about what happened. these profoundly shocking
events. picking up from what jim said a moment ago, what happened here a year ago and we're still in the beginning of an investigation that will go on, very coordinated action that was essentially coordinated from syria, we've seen a shift in the tactics moving on to the 14th of july where one man rented a truck, of course, and plowed it into a crowd of people, we've seen a change, people inspired by what they've seen on internet and carrying out attacks with knives or with trucks, but the sort of coordinated attacks here, it's been a year now, that seems to be behind us. that sense that paris was turned into a war zone for one night, those who lived it firsthand still one year on talk about how traumatic the events were and how difficult it is for them to feel safe, for them to feel secure in their own country, in their own capital. >> we certainly understand that. we just continue to hope for the safety of paris.
such a wonderful place. melissa bell and bitter man. iraqi forces are dropping hundreds of thousands of leaflets on the city, the leaflets tell mosul's residents to be ready to attack isis. they also describe victories. the battle for mosul continues. isis is known to use civilians as human shields. united nations said that isis militants have executed -- a donald trump presidency has muslims on edge. we'll hear from an american muslim living a brord who is worried about returning to her country. the president much colombia is hoping a new peace deal with the farc rebels will hold. we'll have details on what's next. we're live from atlanta broadcasting across the united states and around the world this hour. you're watching "cnn newsroom." . and i never get tired of it.

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm george howell. >> i'm natalie allen. here are the top stories. the question of who president-elect donald trump may choose at chief of staff may soon be answered. the announcement is imminent. the chair of the republican national committee reince priebus is said to be the front-runner. sources say the decision could come as early as monday. >> 19 people were arrested in large anti-trump protests saturday night in portland. portland has been a flash points during four straight days of
protests. thousands of people marched against trump in other cities, including new york and los angeles. in paris, marking one year since the terrorist attack, the targeted six locations across the city. the attacks left 130 people dead and hundreds more wounded. france is commemorating the victims with plaques at the attack sites. four americans were killed in an attack on the largest u.s. military base in afghanistan. the taliban claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing at bagram. two killed were service members, the other two contractors. 17 others wounded. back to the questions many world leaders and americans have about what a trump presidency will look like. we'll soon know in the coming months. tom foreman explains. the president-elect has set an ambitious agenda. >> item one on president trump's to-do list could well be the plan that launched his presidency.
>> we're going to build a wall, folks. >> and he could continue work on sections of such a wall, which is already been going on for years on the u.s./mexico border. but expanding farther for a complete wall would require more money and congressional approval. item 2. deportation. >> day one, my first hour in office. those people are gone. >> in recent months, he said he's not going to deport all 11 million but only those committing serious crimes and yes he can send them home without getting congress involved if he can find them. item 3, trade. >> at the center of my jobs plan will be fixing our terrible trade deals. >> his election and the republican sweep of congress has killed hopes for the trans pacific partnership which president obama wanted. and mr. trump can pull the u.s. out of nafta.
although it's not clear what the economic impact would be and legal challenges are sure to follow. item 4. >> the repeal and replace obamacare act. fully repeal obamacare. >> this will be tricky at best. he certainly can't do it alone. true, republicans hold 51 seats in the senate. but as the rules stand now, that's well short of the 60 needed to overcome a democratic filibuster. he can chew away at key portions of the program by cutting funding. but he'd have to replace parts of obamacare. he's not fully answered the question, with what? item 5. >> we need a special prosecutor to look into hillary clinton. >> he can make such an appointment and his staff suggests the possibility remains on the table. it's just not clear if he will do it. >> item 6. >> the hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce
federal workforce through attrition. >> again, the complete repercussions are unclear. but he has the power if he wants to follow through. lastly. what about banning all muslims from entering the united states. over the past few days, that idea has disappeared and reappeared on the trump website but running mate mike pence says that plan has pretty much been abandoned. >> tom foreman for us. tom, thank you. hillary clinton is also speak out. placing blame now after her presidential defeat. the democrats said the letters from the fbi director james comey were too much to overcome in the final days of the campaign. clinton making the comment to some of her donors on a conference call saturday. comey announced -- about a week before the election. then abruptly announced that there were no wrongdoings just a few days later. clinton urged her supporters to move forward and keep fighting
for their beliefs. again, so many people in the united states and around the world what will he and will he not do after the campaign. the rhetoric of the campaign, muslims are uncertain about what will come with the trump presidency. >> what will happen after inauguration day? >> it's bedtime at the benny rothman family's house. but this isn't like any other night. tonight there's a new reality. a new president in america. >> what was your initial reaction when you heard the news? >> you know, the thing is that with the elections, of course, there is no when you heard the news. it's this long killing me softly process. >> she's an american living and working here in abu dhabi. we first met her at an election viewing party that we live-streamed on facebook. >> i want to play this clip. this is what you told us yesterday. >> i'm hesitant, i'm worried. i don't know what to expect on the other end. >> and this is what she thinks
today. >> i don't know. like it's unprincipled -- it's unpredictable. you don't know what's going to come. >> that uncertainty is casting its shadow over muslims around the world. during his campaign, donald trump proposed a temporary ban on muslims from entering the united states and he wasn't exactly clear about how or even if he'd try to improve relations with the muslim world. many are now stunned that trump was elected. in my opinion, this is the worst decision that america has made this teacher in baghdad says. he will get america into a lot of trouble. trump's policy about muslims and immigrants is really bad this indonesian says. even in this refugee camp where people struggle just to survive. the news and the disappointment spread fast. >> translator: we were surprised by the victory of a racist and sectarian president against the syrian revolution. we had a little hope to go back
home. we don't anymore. >> hope is what ezra benny rothman is clinging to. she's a woman, muslim and african-american woman, who voted in large numbers for hillary clinton. she wonders if people like her still have a place in president-elect donald trump's america. >> are you worried about going back now? >> i am. most obviously the feeling of a displaced refugee. >> is that how you're feeling? >> i feel like a displaced refugee. >> in your own country? >> absolutely. >> as she puts her 1-year-old son to bed, her hope is that donald trump, the president will be different from donald trump the candidate. mohammed lela, cnn, abu dhabi. australia will transfer hundreds of refugees in controversial offshore detention centers to the united states. australian prime minister malcolm turn bull calls it a one
off deal prioritizing women, children and families. it won't apply to refugees trying to reach australia in the future. cnn has reported in the past refugees arriving in australia by boat have been transferred to centers in that rue and new guinea. in a scathing report last month, amnesty international accused australia of making it an open air prison. the president of colombia is urging his country to give peace a chance. they signed a revised peace deal with farc rebels to end over 50 years of brutal fighting. >> colombians rejected the initial peace agreement in a referendum last month. critics saying it was too lenient toward the rebels from the revolutionary armed forces. rafael romo has more. >> reporter: the first peace agreement between the colombian government and the farc guerilla group took five years to be reached. the new and revised agreement was put together in only six weeks. beginning of the agreement was
held in havana where the official announcement happened saturday afternoon. representatives of both the farc guerilla group and the colombian government attended the ceremony. in an a did he say to fellow colombians in bogota, manuel santos says the new deal will build a broader deeper peace. among the new stipulations are reparations for victims coming from farc's assets and money. they can form a political party under the agreement but not given seats in the colombian congress automatically as the previous deal stated. >> translator: i am by all colombians, including those who promoted both the yes and the no vote to give peace a chance with this new agreement. that's what the colombian people are asking from us and that's also what the international community is asking for. >> reporter: the new agreement, even with the changes, faces opposition. former colombian president, the main promoter of the no vote,
warned president santos not to call the new agreement definitive or final before consulting with the colombian people. meanwhile, u.s. secretary of state john kerry issued a statement saying i want to congratulate the government and people of colombia on achieving a revised peace agreement. rafael romo, cnn atlanta. thank you. still ahead on newsroom, the supermoon that lit up the night sky is about to make an encore appearance. there it is. we'll tell you why this is the biggest and brightest full moon in more than 60 years. >> we like us a good supermoon. plus from immigrant to model to the white house. a look at the life of america's next first lady. as a marriott rewards member, i can embrace a world full of surprising moments. the new marriott portfolio of hotels now has 30 brands in over 110 countries. so no matter where you go, you are here. join or link accounts today.
...one of many pieces in my i havlife.hma... so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed.
the moon is taking over this newscast. beginning sunday night, the full moon will be bigger and brighter than it has since harry truman was president of the u.s. folks, that was 68 years ago. >> this is amazing, isn't it? cool to look back at that it's the second of three consecutive supermoons this year. the next is in december. our jennifer gray explains what makes a superman different from other moons. >> one of the more notable moons, the harvest moon. this is because the fields have been harvested and this is when animals needed to be killed and stored because winter is coming soon. there's also what's known as the supermoon where the moon can be 14% bigger and 30% brighter. this occurs during the closest approach the moon makes to the earth on its orbit.
every now and then we get a couple of bonus moons. you see the lunar calendar is roughly 29 days, but our monthly calendar is mostly 30 to 31 days. every now and then you will get two full moons in one calendar month. when you have two full moons in a calendar month, the second one is called the blue moon. when you have two new moons in a calendar month, the second moon is called the black moon which is pretty much the only moon that matches its name because it's invisible to us on earth appearing black. >> jennifer gray, thank you. >> cool. >> let's hear more about it. >> we had fire recently that drifted smoke into the atlanta area where cnn is located. smoke and haze can actually make the appearance of this supermoon even larger and even shades of red darker because it all has to do with aerosols from the smoke that settled in over the
atmosphere and the wave lengths that are bent and refracted. i won't get into the details. it could make for a more magnificent supermoon for us. >> we'll take it. >> another thing i want to talk to you guys about. we've been seeing interesting things taking place on the southern tip of britain actually. we'll take you there. we have seen the erosion of the chalk cliffs. these are limestone cliffs found there. you may have seen these in some movies perhaps. there's also the dover cliffs that are just to the east of sussex county. what normally happens is that these cliffs typically recede about 3 to 6 centimeters per year. but a recent study, and they've ben looking at this closely because it's tied in with climate change, they've been receding at an something sell rated pace. 32 centimeters per year. you can see the livelihoods impacted by this. it's not just a local phenomenon
none. 40% of the world's population lives within 100 kilometers of the coastline. so you can imagine that surface erosi erosion, it impacts you, me, anyone close to water. we see larger waves thanks to stronger storms. the impacts and the fingerprints of climate change. the ability to hold more moisture in the atmosphere and more intense storms and more frequent rainfall that saturates into the environment and the ground and allows for the coastal erosion, for it to be x exacerbat exacerbated. then you take into consideration the wind with the strong storms that move through. we see that coastal erosion get even greater. we're talking about the united kingdom and there are no major storm systems in store for now. as we look towards the winter outlook, perhaps you're in dublin, london, he hwe take it
one year ago, december 2015, you recall the deadly flooding that took place across the northern sections of great britain, we don't want a repeat of that. they're investing heavily in infrastructure to prevent that from happening again. look at the overall map across the united kingdom and europe and western russia. we have got a significant amount of snowfall for places like romania and into parts of the ukraine, even western russia that's had a significant snow pack on the ground already, up to 50 centimeters on the ground thanks to recent snowfall there. i'll leave it on a brighter note. a beautiful photo coming out of the red square in central moscow. people navigating snow mounds there because of all the recent snow. >> how high is that? >> that's at least a meter, three feet perhaps. you can imagine what that's like. haven't seen that in atlanta
before. i come from mitsch. definitely battled that before. >> used to snow. >> derek, thanks so much. >> thanks, guys. from fashion model to pennsylvania avenue. melania trump will soon be first lady of the united states. >> there's never been one like her. jeanne moos has a closer look at the former model ahead. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company optum powers modern healthcare by connecting every part of it. so while the world keeps searching for healthier we're here to make healthier happen. are my teeth yellow? have you tried the tissue test? ugh yellow. what do you use? crest whitestrps. crest 3d whitestrips whiten 25 times better
