>> sometimes kids have other plans when it comes to surprise. i think it's a girl. welcome to cbs this morning. president trump is proposing even more tariffs against china. the president asked u.s. trade representatives to consider imposing tariffs on another $100 billion in chinese goods. >> it would be retaliation for china's announcement of tariffs on u.s. products like soybean, meat, pork and some airplanes. chip reid at the white house. a big deal, chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. president trump has been criticizing china for unfair trade practices ever since the presidential campaign. this latest proposal has them wondering when the tit-for-tat
7:04 am
with china will end. >> this was going to be my remarks. it would have taken about two minutes. but look. that would have been a little boring. >> reporter: president trump tossed his script during a forum on tax cuts in west virginia yesterday and instead taking aim at his new favorite target. >> no president wanted to go against china economically and we're going to do it. >> reporter: last night, the president fired back against china's announcement of $50 billion in tariffs, calling them unfair retaliation. >> you understand the concept of being taken advantage of, and we can't be taken advantage of any longer. >> reporter: the president also instructed his secretary of agriculture to, quote, implement a plan to protect our farmers. some of china's main targets for tariffs include soybeans and pork. industries located mainly in states won by mr. trump in 2016. >> i have great respect for the president of china.
7:05 am
president xi. he's a friend of mine. but he's representing china and i'm representing the united states of america. and it was time that we did something. >> reporter: exactly one year ago today, president trump met with chinese president xi at mar-a-lago, citing tremendous progress. but that good will seems to have faded. last night, china's commerce ministry responded to the president's announcement. saying they are not afraid to fight a trade war. the u.s. trade representative said president trump's response is appropriate, given what he called china's unjustified tariffs. >> he took a lot of pride in that seemingly. >> not the first time. the president said he wants to send up to 4,000 national guard troops to the border with mexico to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking. he suggested yesterday the soldiers would stay there until the border wall is finished.
7:06 am
he did not say what their exact role will be. the government says arrests along the border increased about 37% in march. the number was more than three times what it was in march of last year. >> at the event in west virginia yesterday, the president lashed out at caravans of central american immigrants that are moving through mexico. >> yesterday, it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody's ever seen before. they don't want to mention that. >> in 2015, when he announced he was running for president, mr. trump called some mexican immigrants rapists. the white house says that yesterday he was referring to attacks on female migrants while they're trying to reach the u.s. >> the president also said yesterday he did not know his personal lawyer paid $130,000 to adult film star stormy daniels. it was the president's first public comment about daniels who says she had sex with mr. trump in 2006.
7:07 am
the president also said he doesn't know where the money for the payment came from. paula reid is at the white house. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. daniels says that money she received just days before the 2016 election was an exchange for her keeping silent about her alleged affair with the president. but the white house has repeatedly denied there ever was an affair. yesterday, the president denied knowing about any payment. >> did you know about the $130,000 to stormy daniels? >> no. >> reporter: speaking to reporters aboard air force one, president trump denied knowing about the agreement negotiated by his personal attorney michael cohen. >> why did michael cohen make those if there was no -- >> well, you'll have to ask michael cohen. >> reporter: he also denied knowing the source of the $130,000. >> do you know where he got the money? >> i don't know. >> reporter: daniels told "60 minutes" she had one sexual encounter with mr. trump in 2006 and was paid to keep quiet. >> i was concerned for my family and their safety.
7:08 am
>> reporter: she is suing to invalidate the agreement, arguing the contract is not valid because the president never signed it. she also argued their deal could have violated federal election law. >> you can't be a party to an agreement, have a binding contract, if you claim you basically didn't know about a principal term, a material term in the contract. >> reporter: daniel's attorney, michael avenatti, believes the president's denial helps his client's case. >> we think the president's comments today have not only placed mr. cohen in the cross hairs but also subjected himself to significant exposure for a deposition. >> reporter: but michael cohen's spokesman david schwartz has denied the payment had anything to do with the campaign. on cbs this morning, he said the money was paid to protect mr. trump's reputation. >> can i have a nondisclosure agreement signed and go on with my life or am i going to enter into a messy litigation. >> reporter: daniels' attorney previously asked the court to allow him to put the president under oath for a deposition but
7:09 am
the judge denied that request. after yesterday's denial by the president, avenatti says he's going to try once again to depose the president. john. >> paula, thanks. seems like this process will continue. president trump seems to be standing by epa administrator scott pruitt, despite the series of concerns that appear to have put pruitt's job security in jeopardy. pruitt is fending off repeated questions over his housing arrangements, staffing decisions and spending as head of the agency. the president said yesterday he still has confidence in pruitt. julianna goldman was first to report on a longtime epa official who was reassigned after clashing with pruitt. she's outside the agency's headquarters in washington. julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, despite warnings from white house officials, scott pruitt has launched a full-court press to defend himself. but it's not stopping even some republican lawmakers for calling for his resignation.
7:10 am
>> i think that scott has done a fantastic job. >> reporter: president trump praised his embattled epa administrator, but expressed some uncertainty about the barrage of negative headlines. >> i have to look at it up close. i'll make that determination. but he's a good man. he's done a terrific job, but i'll take a look at it. >> reporter: the ethical cloud hanging over pruitt keeps getting darker. sources tell cbs news that last year pruitt asked to use lights and sirens to get through routine washington, d.c. traffic. his lead security agent told him it can also be done in an emergency. less than two weeks later, that agent was reassigned withinate genesee. as more ethical questions piled up, pruitt went on a media offensive. >> is draining the swamp renting an apartment from the wife of a washington lobbyist? >> i don't think that's even remotely fair to ask that question. >> reporter: pruitt rented a condo from lobbyist steven hart for just $50 a night, claiming the arrangement was cleared by an epa ethics lawyer. >> that is something that,
7:11 am
again, has been reviewed by ethics officials here. they've said it's market rate. >> reporter: but that lawyer now says he didn't have all the facts. including that pruitt's daughter also stayed in a room there. >> mr. hart has no clients that has business before this agency. >> reporter: pruitt claims the rental didn't pose a conflict of interest but senate lobbying records show hart represented several companies who had business with the epa while pruitt was his tenant. pruitt's saving grace may be that president trump and conservatives both see pruitt as perhaps the most effective cabinet secretary in rolling back obama-era regulations. but, gayle, this drip-drip really has taken on a life of his own and the president has been known to praise someone one day and fire them the next. >> yes, we have seen that. julianna, thank you. more than once. thanks a lot. facebook's sheryl sandberg admits the company did not strengthen its security fast enough to safeguard the data of 87 million users affected by its
7:12 am
privacy scandal. sandberg, facebook's chief operating officer, is apologizing for that failure. anna werner is here with what facebook promises to do to regain the trust of more than 2 billion users. seems like a big job. >> sandberg says fab plan face double the security department by the end of the year. on monday, facebook also intends to notify the millions of users who may have been impacted by the cambridge analytica leak. >> we know we did not do a good enough job protecting people's data. and i'm really sorry for that and mark's really sorry for that. >> reporter: in an interview with bloomberg, facebook's coo sheryl sandberg focused on the company's future after the massive data breach. >> what people want to know from us is are we going to take steps to be more protective and more proactive? and the answer to that is a firm yes. >> reporter: on monday, facebook says it will make it clearer for
7:13 am
users to see which apps they're connected to and how to delete them. founder mark zuckerberg says in 2013 an app called this is your digital life began harvesting data of the roughly 300,000 facebook users who downloaded the app and their friends. the collected data, he says, was eventually shared with political consulting firm cambridge analytica, violating facebook's privacy terms. cambridge analytica has denied wrongdoing. this week, facebook says data from as many as 87 million users may have been scraped. >> i'm not going to say we won't find more problems. we will. and this is a forever thing. because security is an arms race. >> reporter: sandberg also pushed back against ex-facebook employees who criticized the company's practices. saying it's obviously disappointing when people who worked here speak out. we have an incredibly open culture internally. last year, former facebook executive chamath palihapitiya
7:14 am
says he had tremendous guilty building the giant. >> we have created tools that are ripping a part the social fabric of how society works. >> reporter: sandberg says a few of facebook's advertisers have paused their spending, following the cambridge analytica scandal. facebook ceo mark zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before congress about the data leak beginning on tuesday. guess they have questions for him. >> sounds like sandberg didn't answer them. hopefully they'll hear more next week. police provided new details about the gun used in the shooting at youtube's california headquarters. they say nasim aghdam bought the gun legally. police confirmed she reloaded it at least once during tuesday's attack. she shot three people before killing herself. her father says she was angry at youtube. the only victim in the hospital is now in fair condition. the united states announced

7:17 am
show. >> reporter: mikael fishman is the former editor of "the moscow times." >> kremlin is managing every message it sends through federal television. this is how basically russia nation gets its political agenda. >> reporter: and it is a message that appears to be getting through. do you believe the british or the russians? >> of course not. >> reporter: you tonight? of course not? >> i can say i'm a resident of my country. >> so i think it's just like anti-russian strategy. because -- >> reporter: anti-russian strategy? >> yes. >> reporter: they're not alone. not everybody we recently spoke to in misoscow buys their own country's story, nobody buys britain's version of events. charlie d'agata, london zbloon flooding is a major concern across northern california this morning. some areas could see up to 8 inches of rain by sunday. flood watches and warnings are in effect.

7:45 am
>> reporter: the city of l.a. says it could make baxter a one-way street or perhaps prohibit turns down there. that might rule out baxter as a short cut. waze says it always encourages drivers to report has starts like steep inclines and often uses that information when it revises its maps. >> all right, carter, thank you. i mean, i know i use waze a lot. >> consider that reporting that to waze, houston, we have a problem, might want to rethink that. not good. >> all right. up next, a look at the other headlines, including a newly revealed data breach

good morning. hopefully you're getting through this wet weather just fine. here's a live look from our kpix 5 roof cam. raindrops on the camera lens. and also those dark storm clouds of. a sign of more rain to come. this is just the beginning. we have had overnight showers, of course. some heavy rain in many areas. we are already seeing some minor flooding in many locations, especially across the north bay and more rain coming there. here we are right along highway 101 and highway 1 just in between here, guerneville, bodega bay, dillon beach is picking up to stronger rates. rohnert park and santa rosa, you're dealing with some heavy rain. san francisco lighter but rain starting to pick up. you had a little break and here
8:56 am
comes the rain again through richmond and oakland, as well. the good news for the south bay, all you have is rain to the east of san jose. so not necessarily dealing with precipitation right now but, of course, this atmospheric river has a lot of moisture right behind it. and here's a look at some of the rainfall totals so far. venado almost two inches. petaluma almost an inch. mill valley over an inch. eight tenths of an inch for san francisco already. sorry we are expecting to see another -- so we're expecting to see another few inches of rain from the pineapple express from now until early tomorrow morning. traffic coming up.

good morning. 8:58. speeds are in the yes low and our rides are showing improvement through san jose. speeds are in the yellow. 101 near north first street okay in both directions. a little further north we are tracking an accident with lanes blocked and emergency crews are on the scene. they are also blocking the on- ramp from northbound 85 to northbound 101 while they are working on clearing that activity over to the shoulder there. so just a heads up, if you are traveling through that stretch, it's going to be a slow ride. your ride continues to be sluggish heading in and out of san mateo but nothing like we were tracking earlier. still dealing with the big delays over at the bay bridge toll plaza in the red, close to a 45-minute ride heading into san francisco. be careful out there. it's been a wet ride.
