knife attack at ohio state university. the investigation is leading toward terrorism as a motive. police say that abdul razak artan plowed into a group of people with his car yesterday, then slashed five of them with a butcher knife. a campus police officer shot and killed the suspect about one minute later. police say artan was a student at ohio state. he came to the united states back in 2014, and before that he spent seven years in a pakistan refugee catch after somalia. artan gla graduated from a community college earlier this year. he recently posted on facebook that he was, quote, sick and tired of seeing my fellow muslim brothers and sisters being authorities began searching his apartment last night. they believe that he ancted alone. president-elect donald trump has announced another major cabinet nomination. he will tap georgia congressman tom price for the leader of health and human services.
8:04 am
before entering kong, he was an orthopedic surgeon. tennessee senator bob corker and 2012 gop presidential nominee mitt romney will also meet with trump today. mr. trump talked yesterday with retire foure four-star general petraeus. john heilman is managing editor at bloomberg politics. first, secretary of state. the president-elect's choice for who he wants is one thing. getting them confirmed by the united states >> that's true. >> and how does that affect his choice? >> it seems harder for me to imagine that any of the current people being considered are going to have a real problem getting through a republican senator. >> even petraeus? >> petraeus has some vetting issues. clearly there are many people who will point out that for a republican president-elect who spent a lot of his campaign attacking hillary clinton over her e-mail use and over the
8:05 am
classified material, david petraeus, that's what he got in trouble with the law for. there will be a fight over that. but again, hard for me to believe that any of these candidates would have a problem getting through. >> do you see a front runner here? kellyanne conway maybe very vocal in her disapproval of mitt romney. there are reports kellyanne has gone rogue. she made it clear that's not the case. she has the support of donald trump. is there a leading contender in your mind? >> the only mind that matters on this is the mind of donald thing seems to have been wildly overblown. donald trump likes chaos. it's pretty clear to me kellyanne conway may be a lot of things, she's not dumb. i don't think she came forward and said anything she did not feel comfortable saying in the context of maintaining her close relationship to mr. trump. so i think everyone i talk to about this is -- says the same thing, which is man, we just don't know what donald trump is thinking. there's things like what he thinks the cut of the jib, the
8:06 am
like a secretary of state. might seem crazy o some people. that matters to donald trump. i wouldn't be surprised if any of the following people, rudy giuliani, mitt romney, and david petraeus, end up being secretary of state. would not surprise me pchbl. >> tom price now nominated to be the head of health and human services. he's called obamacare crazy. what does this tell you about where the president-elect is going on the affordable car act? >> he spent a large portion of the campaign saying he was going to repeal and replace obamacare on day one, which was a little overdramatic. can't really do that in one day. this pick is really consistent with what president-elect trump campaigned on. whether -- doing the replacement of obamacare has been a complicated thing. but it's true congressman price, unlike many republicans who criticized the law, congressman price has a replacement. the more interesting quirks or
8:07 am
question, is the fact that congressman price also wants to overhaul medicare in a pretty dramatic way, along the lines of the way paul ryan has said. that's something that president-elect trump said he was adamantly against throughout the campaign. so there's some on the question of repealing or replacing obamacare, there's alignment between the new proposed hhs chairman and the president-elect on the question of what to do about medicare, which is obviously the biggest, most important federal entitlement. there's some disagreement at least right now. >> and mitt romney and donald trump having dinner tonight at a french restaurant. >> it's true. you guys have not been on donald trump's twitter feed this morning yet. >> no. >> the news of this morning is that out of nowhere apparently, the president-elect has said -- has come out with a tweet this morning about flag burning. not sure what provoked this tweet. he's suggesting now that if someone burns the american flag, they should be thrown in jail or
8:08 am
familiar with the constitutional law on this matter, which is flag burning is, at this moment at least, protected speech under the first amendment. i don't think even if you were to amend the constitution you would be able to strip someone's sltsship from them for pretty much any reason. >> there hasn't been a campaign like it. that still continues. >> we're talking about it now. john heilman, thank you. world leaders are arriving in havana ahead of tonight's rally to honor fidel notably absent, russian president vladimir putin, canadian prime minister justin trudeau, as well as president obama obama. charlie rose is in havana, where cubans are lining up to pay their respectings. charlie, good morning to you.

8:10 am
medals. the moment may have lasted only seconds, but the anguish was evident. i tell you this from my heart, this farmer said. i'd like it to have been me instead of him. castro's ashes were kept out of public view, even in death he is surrounded by secrecy. alcohol sales and celebratory music are banned during this period of mourning. schools and government offices have been many mourners who also signed an oath of loyalty o castro's revolution, are state employees or students. around the world, castro is seen by some as a murderous and repressive dictator. but to these cubans, he is a father figure and a national hero. tonight's rally will be a kind of sendoff of fidel castro.

8:18 am
next year. jill schlesinger is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with mortgage rates. it was owe traumatic, it was double digits back then. now you said it's raised to 4%. >> it's weird, before the election if you were going to get a 30-year fixed rate mortgage you were paying 3.34%. now up over 4%. >> that's still good. >> 4% is amazing. it really is. but that jump is dramatic. and the reason the rates have jumped is that the market believes that president-elect trump's policies where you get more spending, more tax cuts, we'll see more growth. so the federal reserve will have to raise rates faster. all interest rates will likely rise as a result. that's why mortgage rates are up. again, it's very low historically, honestly, if you're shopping for a mortgage,
8:19 am
>> especially if they keep ticking up which they will presumably for a couple years now. >> and people are thinking, wait a minute, should i buy my house right now? wait a second, we're still looking at low mortgage rates and you've got to look at your financial situation. we talk financial planners all the time, what do they say, they say you should be spending up to 30% of your income on housing. housing can be your house or it can it's tough in a high-priced mortgage to keep that housing cost at 30%. but what's really important is, if you are about to buy a house, you got to factor that in. you also have to come up with a down payment. 20%. you can do less but it's safer to do 20%. then you deputy factor in maintenance costs. the boiler can break. >> what's the average for a
