7:00 am
good morning, america. new overnight -- the post-election protests, demonstrations now turning ugly. police launching tear gas as president-elect donald trump shakes up his transition team. who's in charge now and is he changing his tune on obamacare? wildfires. the states of emergency. dozens of fires now burning across the southeast. the reward to catch the arsonists and the health concerns for millions of people this morning. the police shooting caught on camera. an officer dragged down the street, struggling with the driver, the officer's gun going off. >> you shot me -- >> did that officer intend to shoot? and the global go-getter.
7:01 am
become the youngest woman to visit every country in the world. why she's doing it and what she's calling the most beautiful part of her epic journey. hey, good morning. we have a shot here of trump tower in midtown manhattan. where, this morning, decisions are being made about who's going to run this country for the next four years. >> and we now know that vice president-elect mike pence will be taking over the transition team. we're also hearing a flurry of reports about the various republicans, including rudy giuliani and newt gingrich, who could move into some of the top positions. meanwhile, it was another night of anti-trump protests. in portland, oregon, one person got shot. >> we'll have much more on the simmering divisions in this
7:02 am
house, reporting on the transition from an obama administration to a trump administration. mary, good morning. >> good morning. the president-elect is walking back from a central promise of his campaign after meeting with president obama, hearing his direct appeal, trump now says he may keep some of the obamacare after all. throughout his campaign, candidate donald trump said obamacare had to go. >> obamacare has to be replaced. we will stop the obamacare madness. we're going to repeal and replace obamacare. >> reporter: but now, president-elect trump says he's open to keeping parts of the obama health care law. in a "60 minutes" interview, he suggests two of the most popular provisions may be safe from the chopping block. >> when you replace it, are you going to make sure that people with preconditions are still covered? >> yes, because it happens to be one of the strongest assets. and also children living with their parents for an extended period. we'll very much try and keep that.
7:03 am
care plans will look like one of the many questions facing his transition team. which saw a major staff shake-up on friday. that team is now being led by vice president-elect mike pence. he's replaced embattled new jersey governor chris christie who's taking on a lesser role and what about trump's cabinet? >> there a number of people being talked about for different jobs. ultimately, that's donald trump's decision. >> reporter: playing a big role in that decision, trump's children. donald junior, ivanka and eric, all named to the transit team. they'll help build their father's administration as they also help to build the family business. the potential conflict of interest is drawing criticism after the trump promised a strict separation. >> we're not going to be involved in government? >> there will be a wall between you and your siblings and your father? >> 100%. we won't talk about it. >> reporter: cabinet contenders
7:04 am
giuliani, who's now being considered for attorney general or secretary of state. >> so many positions to fill. now, mary, donald trump has over 4,000 positions to fill. presumably the most urgent right now is chief of staff. what do we know about the direction he's leaning? >> in addition to reince priebus trump's son-in-law jared kushner is being eyed for the job. in fact, he visited here with trump. he even got a tour here from the man who currently holds the job. paula. >> all of this to be determined. mary, thank you. and tensions remain high as the nation is still deeply divided over trump's election. for the third straight night, anti-trump protesters have taken to the streets while supporters are speaking out in support, and abc's gloria riviera is in washington for us this morning. >> reporter: that's right, overnight, heated anti-trump protests in more than a dozen cities across the country. initially in a tweet, president will have elect donald trump dismissed them.
7:05 am
saying they hope this is just the beginning of the nation's strongest protests since occupy wall street. overnight, protesters across the country denouncing donald trump's victory. violent demonstrators, seen here in portland, threatened with tear gas, after allegedly throwing burning objects at officers. investigators saying one protester was hurt in a shooting that broke out during the protest. the injuries not life-threatening. in other cities -- philadelphia, dallas and miami -- thousands marching mainly peacefully against the president-elect. despite trump's losing of the popular vote to hillary clinton his supporters who propelled him to win 29 states, say they staged their protest in the ballot box. >> give us somebody who's not a politician, give us somebody who's successful but one of the people. >> i think he's going to surround himself with the right people. >> we know that there's going to
7:06 am
>> reporter: electing trump in part to voice frustration in a sense of marginalization for the last several years. >> so many things rushed through my head. my children's future, feeling safe and secure. >> reporter: it's the silent majority trump and his campaign repeatedly predicted. >> and we're going to washington, d.c., to drain the swamp! >> reporter: tensions also spilling into schools across the country. the fbi now investigating an incident targeting black students at the univsi pennsylvania. according to school officials, students were anonymously added to a group chat featuring racist slurs, threats and photos depicting lynchings. >> people started to get more confidence. now that they see someone in charge that shares the same morals they feel confident with like projecting that. >> reporter: in the protests in portland police say more than $1 million in damage has been done. there are more protests planned
7:07 am
angeles, and reports of plans for a significant protest here in washington, d.c., on january 20th, when president-elect donald trump takes the oath of office. dan, paula. >> it's a tense time in america. gloria, thank you. let's get more on all of this now with cokie roberts who's also in washington this morning. cokie, good morning. i want to start with this obamacare news, i guess the question is, if trump is willing resistance on obamacare, what does this say about his intention to follow through on his other big campaign promises like building wall? >> i think that he's fairly frank about the fact that some of that was for campaign purposes and he says he's concentrating on taxes and jobs. and of course, that makes a lot of sense because that's what people really care about. but what he says about obamacare
7:08 am
really popular, being able to get insurance even if you have a pre-existing condition. keeping young people on parents' coverage until they're 26. those are very popular measures. now, how he's going to pay for that without having the rest of the structure of the bill is an interesting question. same thing about the wall, you know, we already have a good bit of wall along our southern border, does he really need tope of it? and is mexico going to do it? of course not. i think he's going to pick and choose and do the things that he thinks the voters really care about in their day-to-day lives as opposed to these big campaign statements. >> cokie, we talked about these positions, 4,000 positions that trump needs to fill. 1100 need senate approval. including defense secretary. now, the washington post reporting this morning he's eyeing new hampshire senator -- former senator now, kelly ayotte
7:09 am
didn't vote for him, is this a sign he's willing to surround himself with people that he doesn't always agree with? >> we'll see. kelly ayotte's a real loss to the senate, in fact, she's able to go across party lines and get things done, and the fact that he is thinking about her does show you there might be an outreach beyond his inner circle. that circle was awfully small. as you saw in mary's piece, his children have been such a part of that. he has to get beyond that immediate group. but, so, whether that includes people who have disagreed with him, look, he sat down with the president the other day, the two of them could not have been harsher about each other, and came out saying glowing things and so maybe we're seeing a more subdued presidential donald trump.
7:10 am
>> not much time has elapsed, though. we'll see how things progressed. we're really at this contentious point in american history. i'm just curious, given your experience covering politics, what would you say to the americans who are pinning so much hope on this president and those fearing anger and fear and dread about this new president. >> well, starting there, you wonder how much of these protesters voted. but the fact is that he should do something to speak to the people who are angry and frightened, particularly to the immigrant communities, the muslim community and these horrific stories we're hearing about kids being harassed in schools. he needs to actually stand up publicly and say something, make some kind of gesture that makes clear he disapproves of this and he's reaching out to the people who are frightened in the country.
7:11 am
excited i think they'll stay excited for a while. just the notion they did it. they won. they beat the odds. they told all the smart washington types that we were all wrong and so i think that they'll stay with a sense of excitement. and if he can do something quick, like an infrastructure bill, where people really go to work right away building highways and airports and such, that will -- that will make people happy. >> roughly 68 days until the inauguration. cokie, thanks for the insight. and across the southeast, battles are going on right now to get a handle on dozens of wildfires that are burning. blanketing cities in thick smoke. arson is suspected in several of them with a reward being offered to find those responsible and rob is here with the latest and how long people will be waiting for relief. hi, rob. >> reporter: hi, paula. it's been a horribly dry fall and summer for parts of the southeast. a drought emergency in many areas.
7:12 am
and this morning we're coming to figure that some of these may have been intentionally set. this morning, wildfires raging across the southeast. several areas under a state of emergency, the situation intensifying with 37 large fires burning across 7 states. investigators suspect arsonists are to blame for some of the fires. with arrests already made in tennessee and kentucky. now, the state of alabama offering a $5,000 reward to catch those responsible. in some of the hardest-hit areas, over 60,000 acres scorched over the last few weeks. >> it's devastating and it's heartbreaking. >> reporter: alabama in a drought emergency, urging residents to refrain from building outside fires. >> this one little ember from a fire even though it could be innocent can cause a lot of damage. >> reporter: the rash of wildfires is driving some families from their homes. >> this smoke stretches out for
7:13 am
much of the southeast seeing one of the driest years on record. >> the smoke almost blocks out the sun that it's so bad. >> reporter: the smoke so intense blanketing the city of atlanta. air quality concerns are high for residents especially those with asthma and other health concerns. sadly, the smokey mountains have become just that the past couple of weeks and some of that dense smoke getting into some highly populated areas. there are two large fires burning in north carolina. if they combine it would be the largest wildfire there in history. we have very dry conditions for the next 6 to 14 days across the fire zone. dan. >> rob, thank you. we'll be coming back to you soon for the national forecast. now to the dual investigations that have been launched into this newly released video. showing a routine traffic stop escalating into a dangerous confrontation. here's abc's marci gonzalez. >> reporter: this morning, authorities in new jersey
7:14 am
shooting, all captured on this dash cam video. the newly released recording shows the driver as he was pulled over in october for driving with a handicap placard visible in his truck. as the officer asked him to turn off his engine, brown hits the gas taking the policeman along with him, slamming into a parked car. within moments -- >> get the [ bleep ] on the ground. >> reporter: brown takes off running. the officer grabs him and that's when -- you hear the officer's gun go off, shooting brown once in the leg though he seems unaware. >> the investigation of the shooting will also focus on whether the officer intended to shoot brown during the scuffle as they were coming across the street or was it an accidental discharge. >> reporter: the scuffle continuing until the officer manages to get brown to the
7:15 am
this morning, attorneys for brown telling abc news they're conducting their own investigation. writing, i ask that no one rush to judgment based on a short video clip only. and brown faces several charges including aggravated assault and possession of a weapon. because investigators say a loaded gun was found in the truck he was driving. the officer is on administrative leave while the prosecutor's office investigates, which is standard procedure. >> marci, thank you very much. lots other news overnight. we kick it over to ron claiborne. good morning, sir. good morning, everyone. and we begin with breaking news from afghanistan overnight, where a suicide bomber killed at least four people in the country's main american military base and afghan official said as the attacker snuck on bagram air force base detonated the device. the taliban claimed responsibility for that bombing. no word yet on whether any americans are among the dead.

schedule. from afghanistan and zimbabwe and everywhere in between, a millennial is a few flights away from becoming the first woman to visit every country in the world. >> it's becoming really surreal now. >> reporter: the 27-year-old hit the road last july, painstakingly plotting a two-year trip on this old map. she took off from portland, oregon. she headed to new zealand, fiji, instagramming her journey along the way. but the connecticut native said the most beautiful part of her trip has been the kindness of strangers. >> the humanity and the kindness of people around the world i think sometimes we underestimate that. >> reporter: she's already checked 181 countries off her list, just 15 shy of the 196 she's aiming for, but travel doesn't come cheap. she's already spent nearly
