happening now, the vice president arrives in tokyo and gets a big endorsement on important policy shifts on north korea. and the white house facing major pushback on transparency, passenger visitor logs, why won't the white house make it all public? good morning, welcome to "early start." >> good to see you, i'm dave briggs. >> i'm alisyn kosic. >> a first vice president mike pence arriving overnight in tokyo, bringing his u.s. message of u.s. resolve to the japanese in a welcome move the japanese returned the favor. prime minister shinzo abe told the vice president he supported president trump's stance that strategic patience with north korea has run out. once again, that all options are on the table. >> abe adding dialogue for the sake of dialogue with north
2:03 am
korea and international pressure has to be applied. a sentiment pence echoed. >> the united states of america believes time has come for the international community to use both diplomatic and economic pressure to bring north korea to a place that it has avoided successfully now for more than a generation and we will not rest aed we will not relent until we achieve the objective of a denuclearized korean peninsula. >> there comes a day after pence said in south korea strategic patience has run out. we go to alexander field, she is live in tokyo outside the prime minister's office with more on pence's visit. >> you know, it's interesting to see how there are a lot of talks here today in tokyo about boosting trade with japan, but these provocations with north korea really becoming the focus
2:04 am
of this trip. >> reporter: right, absolutely. there are economic talks which are a key part of this trip. but security is the focus right now for so many people, because the threat of north korea presents itself for one that is real and also grave. it's the issues leaders had to talk about today, one that cannot be ignored. how do you start when it comes to ensuring the safety of people in japan and the rejean and people beyond that vice president mike pence gave remarks inside the prime minister's residence, he called the threat the most ominous one the region is facing. he again reafirms the message that has been delivered by other top u.s. diplomats to visit the region, saying the u.s. stands firm with their allies, their resolve has never been stronger to combat this growing north korean threat. you we heard all options are on the table. but the vice president was clear in sort of outlining some of the strategy that the trump administration did not employ in terms of dealing with north
2:05 am
korea, not just this threat that a military option could be on the table but close work in the region with tokyo, talks with china about how to further isolate and pressure north korea to the point of denuclearization, that is the goal, it is the objective 100% as vice president mike pence put it today. prime minister shinzo abe saying they value the fact that washington is looking at all options to counter this threat. >> alexander field, live from tokyo, thanks very much. the vice president to tokyo comes the day after he set off a round of north korean saber rattling by warning that pyongyang should not test president trump's resolve. in response monday, the ambassador to the u.n. told a hastily arranged news conference that it's the u.s. that has created quote a dangerous situation in which thermoand nuclear war may break out at any moment, joining us live from seoul, paula hancock with the very latest.
2:06 am
good morning to you on the cover the front page of the washington post. they say south korea is dealing with a new wild card. they suggest that president trump is that kooild wild card. >> reporter: well, thank you. it's certainly interesting that this press conference in the u.n. by that deputy ambassador was hastily put together. the fact that it was such a quick response to what vice president pence was saying. it's unusual to see that. that just shows how strong those words were and how much that could have concerned the north korean regime. certainly here in south korea, the fact that this is being dealt with so vocally, it would be welcome candidate. you we heard that from the acting president when he was meeting with the president. pence pointing out the u.s. military defense system is definitely going to be deployed and is going to be operational as soon as possible. so certainly, they seem to be backing up this sort of psychological deterrent that the trump administration is trying
2:07 am
to put on north korea at this point. of course, there are going to be concerns when there are, there is talk of a potential preemptive strike on north korea. now, this is something that the trump administration continues to say that all options are on the table. but the fact that the military option is being openly discussed would concern some, obviously hoping that it wouldn't go too far. >> thank you, paula. all right, let's discuss more about everything going on from the far east of walk we got political analyst the author of "the trump's america" good morning, thank you for coming in. >> good morning. >> let's talk about north korea, this fiery language being used, obviously not just by north korea but from the trump administration as well. could there be a miscalculation going on here, as least on the u.s.' part? >> well, words can be palpable in a situation like this. the rhetoric has been hotter than it has been in many years in north korea.
2:08 am
the behavior so far not that different. so the danger, of course, is we get into a debate, an argument, our language gets rougher and rougher and at some point somebody does something. >> what na thing is, what military action of north korea is, we can't glynn to speculate. we will come back here to the battle front that is trance parent t. trump administration on friday, friday afternoon, mind you, to say we're not making public the white house visitor log, now taxes is once again on the forefront. democrats say they're going to tie the president's release of his tax returns to any tax reform bill that the president wants to get through, chuck schumer say figure he doesn't release his returns, it's going to make it much more difficult to get tax reform done. why? >> well, because i mean it's a political club. the democrats can use against donald trump. >> what do they need to see in those? >> well, as a practical matter,
2:09 am
nothing. there is nothing in there that really is going to affect chuck schumer's views than the tax policy on things. you know what, it's a powerful political weapon. three-quarters of americans want him to release his tax returns. now he points out he was elected anyway. but you got to assume, dave, that there's got to be something in there, otherwise they'd put him out. >> they're saying it's because of his audit, his audit. why won't the administration say you know what, you're not going to see them. why don't they say it? they're not going to surprise anybody. >> listen to the kids, donald and erica essentially said the same thing. you will never see those tax returns. i'm not holding my breath. i think frankly the only way we get fem e them is if they get leaked or some government position forces it. congress can require their release. i don't think we're there yet. >> on the one page, it looked
2:10 am
like a high source. >> all right, today not just tax the big special elect in the atlanta suburbs. this is a district that has been republican since 1978 when newt beginning rich won there. but donald trump won this district by 1.5%. so is it anything short of a democratic win there, actually underperforming hillary clinton. >> the narrative has been this might be a warning shot to republicans across the country. but look at the numbers, okay? hillary clinton got 46.8. isn't anything less than that underperforming hillary clinton? >> you know, you make an earlier point. in any comparison, it depends on what is your base of comparison? if you focus on the trump numbers there, they got a win. now, that seed issue was in the republican hands for congress for many years. it's not a donald trump kind of district, a highly educated district a. fairly affluent, suburban. those are not exactly trumpsters, i guess. >> so what do we make of today's
2:11 am
results? >> say it's believed to be not yet north -- >> they'll probably get close, it will get tough. >> are you telling me he needs to get -- >> so you push it. there are 18 candidatesin this jungle primary, i love that term, throw everybody into it. but so if the -- if you assume those republican votes in the second primary will vote for whoever the republican winner is, it's very important that the dem get over the top or at least darn close it to. >> are we making too much of this election? >> oh, it's fun, c'mon. >> what is it indicative of? >> here's the question, there is clearly great passion among active democrats out there. mostly jepp ratesed by donald trump. they're despising of this president. c the question is, can they turn this out and win elections?
2:12 am
this is one of the early tests. i am interested. >> democrats raise $8 million. daniel jackson making calls. president trump making robo-calls and tweets for the republicans. >> stick around, it will be fun. >> we will bring you back in a little bill bit. president trump and the state department. not quite on the same page regarding sweeping reverend dups. what did president trump relay to president erdogan? we are live in i stan bull. he's a nascar champion who's she's a world-class swimmer who's stared down the best in her sport. but for both of them, the most challenging opponent was... pe blood clots in my lung. it was really scary. a dvt in my leg. i had to learn all i could to help protect myself. my doctor and i choose xarelto®

2:17 am
the european monitors say it wasn't a balanced fair playing field for the yes and no campaign with yes getting far more support from the government and from the state media. these monitors also talks about 2.5 million ballots they say has some questionable voting irregularities surrounding them. in a statement, they said, if there were so many irregular envelopes and irregular votes actually not valid concerning to the law, that a referendum may be, may have had a different outcome than we know. so really casting doubt on this whole devon item process that these irregular votes could have swayed the election, he called president erdogan to congratulate him. there in walk, mixed signals as well from the state department said that they were concerned about these irregularities that were coming from the european

2:32 am
more than a generation and we will not rest and we will not relent until we achieve the objective of a denuclearized creep peninsula. >> this comes a day after pence said in south korea, the era of strategic patience is over. for now, let's bring in cnn alexander field live in tokyo outside the prime minister's office with more on pence's visit. good morning to you, alexander. let's talk about bilateral negotiations between the two countries on trade but also the failure of dialogue regarding discussions with north korea. what struck you? >> reporter: yeah, it was the sharp word the strong words of failure, that message from vice president mike pence which did echo the failures that secretary of state rex tillerson talked about last month. pence went on to say these failures amounted to nothing but broken promises by pyongyang and more provocations t. defense the
2:33 am
white house has been putth out there, all options are on the table, including a military option. the state ruling again this era of strategic patience is over. what really struck me is the fact you have the prime minister in japan, shinzo abe, coming out, saying japan values washington's position in saying that strategic patience was over. the prime minister went on to say they value the fact that washington is looking at all options and that really speaks to the gravity of the situation. a situation so grave that vice president mike pence called it the most only 90 threat to the region. it's a real threat for people that live here in japan. the prime minister is well aware, he is speaking publicly about. he says the steps in his administration have to do with securing and protecting people in japan as the u.s. talks about charting this course forward in dealing with north korea. the japanese government is looking at what it could do to extricate japanese koreans from the peninsula should that be necessary. they recently conducted a missile evacuation drill right
2:34 am
here in japan. that was after a missile test conducted by north korea just last month when they want full projectiles, all three lasting off the coast of japan in a training exercise simulating hilting u.s. bases right here in japan. prime minister sinz abe also earlier this week pointed out the possibility that north korea could carry out a chemical attack in the region, suggesting they might have the capacity to mount chemical tipped warheads to their missiles. so again, the security concern is real here in japan. what people in japan wanted to hear from the mr. president is not what he delivered, which was a commitment to security in this region here and a strengthening and a deepening of this decades old security alliance here. >> he sure did. alexander field live in tokyo. we should add some speculated the trump administration might reverse policy on tpp. he said that is a thing of the past t. united states moving on from the tpp. thank you. with north korea as a
2:35 am
background, the pentagon announce as review on the use of xhuk clear weapons for the first time since early in the obama presidency. these reviews typically happen every eight years, but there one is expected to look very different than the last, which was down in 2010. >> that before said that russia and the united states are no longer adversaries. from the mid-'90s on, the u.s. has been de-emphasizing nukes as a part of its national strategy. ahead of the u.s. command says america's adversaries, including russia and china have quote taken the exact opposite view, building up their nuclear arsenals, giving mounting tensions with moscow in recent years t. new review likely to take a different tone. a final report is due by the end of the year, joining us to talk about this political analyst, the author of "trump's metro
2:36 am
papers." let's touch briefly on the situation between the united states and north korea. one united voice at the strategic patience, we are past that all options are on the table, what do you make of the u.s. stan and their strategy to don't down that nuclear foot print. >> the tough part goes from the talking to the doing. right. clearly the rhetoric is hotter than it has been seen in recent years. it's still kind of unclear of what exactly we are going to do. we agree all options are on the table. is it clear that we are taking at least a different tone? >> absolutely. >> than obamaed a min sfraition? >> absolutely. -- obama administration? >> absolutely. >> the underlying question, does that make us safer or less safe? i don't think we know the answer to that. >> we we heard from the trump administration that president trump is not into letting you know what his strategy is. >> that's right. that's right. >> talking on a different network about this. let's listen. >> i don't want to teledpraf
2:37 am
what i'm doing or -- telegraph what i'm going to do this or that. i'm not like other administrations that say we will do this in four weeks. i hope there will be peace. they have been talking with this gentleman for a long time. >> that interview will be airing on "fox and friends" this morning. is there something for being said to telegraph your plans, just because we aren't hearing about the plan, it doesn't mean the trump administration doesn't have one. >> there are two possibilities. one that there is a plan recall, we don't want to reveal it for strategic reasons. the other possibility is we have no idea what we're going to do. >> well, no one has any idea what they're going to do if there is a nuclear test. >> exactly. >> leaning on china, hope for some economic leverage there. let's talk now about transparency in this trump administration. it comes down to two things,
2:38 am
really, tax returns with the trump administration said they will not release, because it's under audit. here's what sean spicer says about not making proper exhibitor logs to the white house. listen. >> it's the same policy that every administration had up until the obama administration. frankly the faux attempt that the obama administration put out, where they would scrub what they didn't want put out didn't serve anyone well. >> okay. so don't hold your breath on tax, what about some faux transparency regarding making public of white house visitor locks. >> i prefer transparency, most of us are. we want to know what our government is doing. why did obama plan never reveal every single person. it revealed a ma vast majority. we will tell you everyone except for these categories. i'm for more instead of less. i don't like any times they close the books. >> the visitor log issues, it's the tax return issue that drum
2:39 am
beating again for president trump to release his taxes, keep in mind, a federal law requires an audit happens on the president's taxes every year. but in this case, okay, could president trump maybe release his taxes in previous years? >> if you ask, yes, he could release any of these years. there is nothing about an aude that it requires these things to be an old secret. i think a judgment has been made that previous years, that there is stuff in there that is more damaging tan the political pressure that's being dealt with now. >> speaking of political pressure, it was easy to see one particular senator, senator tom cotton of arkansas at a town hall tried to defend the president. watch this. >> as far as i'm aware the president says he's still under aud audit. it doesn't fake a lot of effort to find out what donald trump has, he normally puts his names on buildings.
2:40 am
>> he says you will not see members of congress jump to his defense on this again. >> no this is the middle of trump country. it's not blue america down there. >> no, people would like to see their president's tax returns. >> there are some dozen republican law makers that have joined democratic calls for him to release them t. question is, there are two fronts in which they're applying pressure. one is the public and town halls. the other is democrats saying if you want tax reform. if you want a big bill to cut tax, you will release your own tax returns. which of those has a more likely, a better strategy to get them? >> you know, i'm not sure either one is going to work to tell you the truth. in the end, if you are trump, right, and you say, listen, what is the damage to me of releasing this and what is the damage of fought releasing it? i think the calculation has been made pretty clearly, you know what, i don't want to release this. >> student: i am not holding my breath on this. either it will get leaked.
2:41 am
and we should get busy on that by the way. >> which breaks federal law. >> they could commit the leak. not to be too technical with you, my friend. >> all right. thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> good to see you guys. watch out for this thing. president trump's policies are threatening the u.s. travel industry, according to a new report that forecasts a huge drop in visitors. one study forecasts a decline of 10.6 million travelers over this year, not just this year next year as well, that's a 7% drop according to tourism economics, which is a forecasting term. the drop will cost the u.s. economy more than $18 billion in lost revenue and about 107,000 jobs as companies deal with slowing demand. researchers say even though the president's new travel immigration policies would affect a fraction of all
