who trump is calling, quote, rude. the new york post weighed in with the headline commander in tweet and the commander in tweet is tweeting moments before we came on the air. >> we'll dive into that in a moment. we'll start with the latest news in the formation of the donald j. trump administration. >> mary bruce is with us. mary, good morning. >> reporter: goo trading it in instead of his golf estate. what his team is calling the camp david of new jersey. this morning trump is broadening the scope of his search picking up the pace of the meetings and even mending some fences. the once bitter rivals now shaking it off. >> went great. >> donald trump and mitt romney huddling for over an hour as the president-elect courts the former republican nominee as a possible secretary of state. >> we had a far-reaching conversation with regards to the

>> and general james mattis for secretary of defense. emerging from their meeting, trump was impressed. >> he's just a brilliant, wonderful man. what a career. and we're going to see what happens. but he is the real deal. >> reporter: now, the cabinet speed dating continues today on trump's long meeting list. among others, rudy giuliani and chris christie. paula. >> feel a little "apprentice." but there's been a lot of meetings this weekend. we think he might make an announcement about more appointees, mary. >> reporter: he's been seeing tremendous talent come through the door and might be nearing more announcements possibly even today. paula and dan. >> thank you. dan. >> paula points out we want to find out whether that hot chocolate was ever delivered. anyway, as we said, trump took time out for the work of assembling his administration to hit twitter, lashing out at the
one of the actors said on the stage to incoming president mike pence that is causing an uproar. kendis gibson is outside the theater where it all went down. kendis, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. "hamilton" remains the hottest ticket on broadway and is part of one of the biggest controversies since the election. the president-elect going after the cast of the tony award winning musical. >> we have a guest in the audience this evening. >> this morning the cast of "hamilton" and mr. trump engaged in a dual. >> we truly hope this show has inspired you to work on behalf
all of us. >> president elect trump demanding mike pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of hamilton. cameras blazing. this should not have happened. within minutes brenda dickson challenged trump's version of the story saying a conversation is not harassment. i appreciate mike pence for stopping to listen. with neither side apologizing the controversy proving as decisive as the elections. >> i don't think that any platform even broadway would be inappropriate. >> it was not appropriate. i was disappointed. to honest with you. >> it's a free country. if you want do that, you can. >> critics calling to boycott hamilton. pence allies newt gingrich and mike huckabee slamming the speech as an arrogant lecture. but their rivals including new york city bill de blasio and david axlerod praising the cast.
mike pence has not responded to the whole controversy but lin-manuel miranda has tweeted his support to the message and to the cast. >> so far vice president elect mike pence has not responded to the whole controversial. but the show creator has tweeted his support to the message and on the the cast. dan, paula. >> kendis gibson outside the room where it happened. thank you. let's bring in martha raddatz week" later this morning. martha, good morning. >> good morning to both of you. >> hi, martha. >> thank you. whatever you think of what the cast of "hamilton" said how politically wise was it for the president-elect to take them on given the lingering concerns about both his temperament and his tone. >> i think it's clear either way all the tweeting plays into the charge that he's thin skinned, he can't take criticism. but his supporters love when fights back.
probably not paying attention, the very least have come to expect this kind of thing from trump and overlook it. >> so martha, mitt romney visited with donald trump yesterday. when we first heard this was going to happen, there was speculation this was just about a photo-op. is he serious about mitt romney? for secretary of state? >> so far it is a photo-op but also a step for trump who holds grudges after mitt romney has said nasty things about him and calling him a phony and a fraud that they met at all is supposed to show trump is moving outside his inner circle with an openness to new people and new ideas. we'll have to see. if he becomes secretary of state. >> so there's a concern about lack of diversity so far in the hiring we saw he brought in michelle rhee and nikki haley. is there really any likelihood of a pick who is not a white male at this point? >> well, i'll put those questions to
there are lots of space and there's lots of big names including general james mattis defense secretary and not all of them are men, white men like as you said former chancellor of d.c. public schools michelle rhee who was also there yesterday. the five picks announced have all been white men. so the pressure is on. >> we hear that donald trump is going to be meeting with rudy giuliani and chris christie, two loyalists today who may have fallen out of favor. is there still room for them in the cabinet? >> you know, dan, and paula, we know loyalty is important to trump and those two have been at his side for nearly all of the ups and downs of the campaign. we'll see. giuliani is still a contender for a couple positions including secretary of state. but christie is in a tougher spot tarnished by the bridgegate scandal and demoted on that
tougher time with this. >> martha raddatz, thank you very much. want to remind everybody martha has a big show speaking with donald trump's incoming chief of staff reince priebus and going to go one on one with the newly elected senate minority leader chuck schumer right here on abc. >> as always with martha, promises to be a great show. let's talk about the weather and the nation's first major snowstorm of the season after creating blizzard and whiteout conditions. in the upper midwest. temperatures plunging up to 40 degrees in a single day. strong wind gusts and potential for lake-effect snow piling up and eva is standing by but first rob. good morning rob. >> good morning, paula. after a very mild fall, a slap in the face. everybody getting these cold temperatures. look at this radar loop. about 18 hours you can see the snow through parts of new jersey and new york city it snowed here and also across new york, connecticut and new england. in some cases it's sticking already. even though the ground relatively warm. lake-effect snow machine

>> saturday police announce an fbi tip has led to the search of a home in dallas where sophia is found alive. two suspects taken into custody. as far as the relationship between the suspects and the victim -- >> can't say much. only that they were -- they knew each other. this is a complicated case. and we want to make sure we get it right. >> today family and friends coming to grips and remembering the 27-year-old mother who will never get to see baby sophia grow up. >> i found out that she was killed, like it's just no words. there were no words. >> police are still interviewing the suspects. their identities haven't been released but police say baby sophia is in good health this morning. dan, paula. >> there's some good news right there. thank you very much phillip. appreciate it. >> let's send things over to ron for a look at the other

pronamel is giving me the confidence to know that i'm doing the right thing so it's nice to know that it was as simple as that. i work 'round the clock. i want my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba?. ? tresiba? ready ? tresiba? is a once-daily, long-acting insulin that lasts even longer than 24 hours. i want to trim my a1c. ? tresiba? ready ? tresiba? provides powerful a1c reduction. works like your body's insulin. when my schedule changes... i want something that delivers. ? tresiba? ready ? i can take tresiba? any time of day. so if i miss or delay a dose, i take it when i remember, as long as there's at least 8 hours between doses. once in use, it lasts 8 weeks without refrigeration... twice as long as lantus?, which lasts 4 weeks. tresiba? is used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. don't use tresiba? to treat diabetic ketoacidosis,
of its ingredients. don't share needles or insulin pens. don't reuse needles. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause dizziness, sweating, confusion, and headache. check your blood sugar. low blood sugar can be serious and may be life-threatening. injection site reactions may occur. tell your doctor about all medicines you take and all your medical conditions. taking tzds with insulins, like tresiba?, may cause serious side effects like heart failure. your insulin dose shouldn't be changed without asking your doctor. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing... fast heartbeat, extreme drowsiness, face, tongue, or throat, dizziness, or confusion. ask your doctor if you're tresiba? ready. ? tresiba? ready ?
at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling.
or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not takxarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.
