7:03 am
ordered a strike and ordered a coke instead. we have to send kim jong-un a message. ah. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump's newest initiative for his first 100 days is a tax cut with big goals and very few specifics. the trump blueprint would slash tax rates and eliminate some of the deductions. it eliminates the deductions taxpayers normally take. >> the president's secretary and economic adviser says the tax cuts will pay for themselves by growing the economy. other namts say they'll explode the national debt. >> now, this proposal is just one page long and contains very few details. officials are saying almost nothing about who will benefit the most. margaret brennan is at the white house with a plan that's months away from a vote. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well, the u.s. has the highest
7:04 am
corporate tax rate in the world and the biggest cuts in president's plan go to large companies and businesses like his own, but it remains unclear how the administration will pay for a plan estimated to reduce tax revenue by 7 trillion ove $ a decade. president trump says his tax cut will unleash economic growth. >> we'll have a massive tax cut for businesses. >> treasury secretary steve mnuchin argued that slashing the tax rate from 35% to 15% will give businesses extra cash to hire. >> this is not just about large corporations. small and medium sized businesses will be eligible for the business rate as well. >> that may help bring employment back to the u.s.,
7:05 am

7:06 am
to $20 trillion deficit is unclear. >> the opening bid sounds like to me they will ratchet it back and make someone fiscally responsible. >> just after reporting that yesterday, the duty on canadian lumber, a white house official publicly floated the idea that the president was withdrawing from the american free trade agreement and it immediately hit the financial markets. houring later in a meeting with the presidents of mexico and canada, he assured them he was not going to do that at this point. instead he plans to renegotiate nafta, something he has not been given the authority to do. >> margaret, thanks. in the next hour steve mnuchin on the tax plan. a special reminder on monday we'll bring you a special edition of "cbs this morning" from inside the white house. it will feature john dinnerson's
7:07 am
interview with president trump which will debut sunday on "face the nation." republican house leaders may have overcome one of the biggest roadblocks to appeal obamacare. now members of that group say they'll support a revised version of the american health care act. nancy cordes is on national hill with changes that other members might reject. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. those conservative members always get the gop plan left too many of the obamacare requirements in place, requirements that they believe drive up premiums. well, there's a new compromise that they support and that is a big breakthrough except that some moderates think it makes the bill worse. >> certainly we're down to days, not weeks. >> after weeks of negotiations, members of the conservative freedom caucus say they're finally ready to vote yes. >> we're supporting it and the under lying bill. >> virginia's dave brat is one
7:08 am
member who came around. >> none of us are going to be totally happy. i'm a free market guy. there's better ways to move on some of this stuff. we want the momentum to go forward, tax reform, get the budget and all that. >> this is what got him there, a new amendment. there's one that prevents insurers from jack up rates for people with pre-existing conditions. those states would be given some funds to set up high-risk pools to help cover those who no longer would be able to afford insurance. >> this is a different twist and i've got to re-examine it. >> the twist meant to appease conservatives is turning off the moderates. >> we have to help those people wronged by the affordable care act. at the same time not harm those helped by it. >> republican charlie dent has always been a know and believes this amendment violated one of the party's promises. >> it will make insurance that
7:09 am
much more expensive for them and in some cases perhaps inaccessive. >> the question is how many members will it affect. gop leaders are not sure. >> we'll see. we'll vote on it when we get the votes. >> another sticking point for several republicans i spoke to is a provision many this new plan that keeps the obamacare protections in place for members of congress and their aids. the authors say it's in there for technical reasons, gayle, but they know how it looks and they're going to try to figure out a way to work around it. >> nancy, thank you. the trump administration calls north korea a very grave threat but also says it's ready to negotiate. house members were briefed at the capitol. the u.s. says the thaad missile program will be available in a few day days.
7:10 am
adriana diaz is in beijing with a plan to avoid a possible war. good morning to you. >> good morning. with tensions mounting here in asia, the trump administration says it wants to diffuse the situation, to try to bring pyongyang to the table. while a diplomatic solution is preferred, the u.s. strike group deployed to peninsula is only a few days away and the pentagon says it has military plans ready as a last option. secretary of state rex tillerson will make a case to further isolate north korea diplomatically on friday at the u.n. the unl announced it's sending a human rights expert for the first time to north korea next week. the question is how much they'll be allowed to see. >> adriana, thank you.
7:11 am
senator john mccain was at the white house yesterday. he joins us now from capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let me ask you this. not only were you at the briefing, but you had a series of calls with the president and you called the moment. not just because of the damage but because it sent a signal unlike previous years that america will act. what should north korea assume america will do? >> i think they should assume the united states will react forcefully. but, charlie, there's a real complication, and that is along the dmz, they have artillery and capabilities that would reach seoul, a still of 26 million people. that complicates thing dross maticly. that's why a lot of emphasis has to be on the only power that can restrain them and that's china. chinese have cut back on the coal supply.
7:12 am
i was not encouraged when china came against our air defense system being in place in south korea. they have to be aware this could have a profound effect on our relations with china because if this exchange began, the north koreans very likely could range seoul with their artillery, and that could be catastrophic. >> senator, was there any indication from that meeting at the white house yesterday that military action against north korea is imminent? >> no, but it is clear, and totally agree it can't be taken off the table but it has to be the last option. when i say last option, that's when we're convinced north korea has that capability to launch a missile that could strike with a
7:13 am
nuclear weapon to the united states. this person is not rational. he's not a person who can act in a rational fashion. >> what do you do with a person? >> if it were up to me, charlie, i would say a missile on the launchpad that we knew for sure had a nuclear weapon on it. i don't think we could wait to launch. we do have defensive capabilities that can intercept missiles, but to count on that alone, i think, would be very risky business. look. this is a very serious issue. very, very serious, and there's nothing with being called down to the white house to talk about it. it's also the product of three previous administration presidents that negotiated what they believed was good faith that turned out to be utterly false while the north koreans
7:14 am
acquired a missile and a weapon. >> one described it as a dog and pony show. i wondered what your feelings were? >> i didn't particularly because this is my day-to-day business. i think they learned the options and the attention we're paying to it, but i don't think they could expect a specific course of action because as we just described, our courses of action would be dictated by north korean behavior. >> senator, one article about you and president trump said how trump came around to mccain on foreign policy. you had this dinner with him along with lindsey graham. what did you learn about him? what did you come away with, and did it change your mind about donald trump? >> well, i've always had respekts for office of the president of the united states. he was very cordial and we had a lot of discussion on a lot
7:15 am
offishes. i was pleased, for example yesterday, that they did not move forward with a revocation of the north american free trade agreement known as nafta, which would have devastated the economy of my state. i don't think it's me. i think it's a person, assuming the most important job in world and understanding those responsibilities. and in the case of national security surrounding himself with some of the brightest people i've ever known and i've known many of them, charlie, and i've known them longer than you, which goes back to the coolidge administration. >> yes, it does. it's a long time. >> it's always good to see you so bright and early in morning. thank you so much. we appreciate it shah thank you. >> take care. united airlines announced new policies overnight in order to restore confidence among passengers. new guide laynes came after officers dragged a man off an overbooked united flight earlier this month.
7:16 am
the senate committee is conducting its own investigation. united is changing for more employment training and reducing overbooking. don dahler is at the newark national airport with the company's new promises. good morning. >> good morning. the airlines' deleted apology has created a nightmare. they're taking action to win back the trust of their customers. >> oh, my god. look at what you did to him. >> the treatment of united airlines passenger david dao created outrage. he suffered a broken nose and concussion when he was pulled off the overbooked flight. now they're introduced ten new customer service policies to make sure an incident like that doesn't happen again. one of them is they're
7:17 am
prohibited from having passengers give up their seats. they can offer up to $10,000. >> united realizes their training and policy was inadequate and they're taking steps to correct that. >> the significant pledge is no longer overbooking. >> that's the crux of the problem. when planes are full, which they are now, people should be confident they'll have their reservation honored and with less overbooking it will prevent a case like this again. >> oscar munoz called it a turning point and apologized again. saying our policies got in the way of our values. >> this will help united recover. but it's going o take the airline a long time, perhaps even several years, to live town the infamy of what happened on
7:18 am
flight 3411. >> some of those policies will take effect today, some in rolling months. in jeune united h start compensating passengers for any permanently lost luggage up $ $13,000. a man is charged for using the bathroom before plane took off. this man was told he cows not get up and use the bathroom. he did so anyway claiming it was an emergency there. the pilot taxied back to the gate where hail. ton was met by officials. they left without him. it's pertinent that they comply. the massive weather system

7:35 am
because i thought about collectively how behind the scenes many of us have gone to the water cooler and talked about not just their plight, but the plight of other people of color at the company and how there have been remarks like, gee, kelly, if you were blond, you could probably anchor here monday through friday. comments like that really began to sting me especially when i was trying to work within the framework of the company, talking to my leader saying, look, we're better than this, we can do better than this, freechb a sound business decision, let's reach out to all people and i'm raising my hands as the only black male anchor you have right now to say put me in the game, give me opportunities to do more, and i thought we were really going to try to do that. >> your language is very strong because the lawsuit says, the color of your skin, you were, quote, effectively sidelined and asked to reform the role of a jim crow. that's very, very explosive

language. >> it is explosive language. that's from my attorney. my language would have been more i want to meet the demands placed me, show up to work and produce 1000% which is what i have done and perform any task they've given me, which is what i've tried to do, whether it's covering the war in iraq or covering breaking overnight news. emotionally what got to me is these are people that i know, people i care about. there are hard-working people there, even the leaders there. but what's happened is the leaders have not effectively pursued, i think, diversity and inclusion of all people, in terms of turning a blind eye overquality. >> that ooh the point. you make clear in the complaint you raised these questions. >> i did. repeat ily. >> what was the response? >> no. the response was actually -- at some point i agreed, they're sitting on both sides of the
7:37 am
table. we should have a program that talks about hope and lifts up all votes and we don't negatively focus on it but we can also show positive things that are going on in the community to turn the negativity around. >> you suggested those types of stories? >> of course. >> the people he referenced earlier, the three people who started these complaints and others had been complaining for years since 2008 complaining about the racist behavior and the chief lawyer, dianne brandi, the chief counsel. >> i'm curious. >> judith slater would have people arm wrestle. when people would say good nigh% to her, she would say, don't shoot, mocking the black lives matter movement. she would say to somebody who has three kids, are they fathered by the same person.

7:40 am
are afraid to come out and talk and i understand why because they have families and jobs and they don't want to run the risk of retaliation or falling into some sort of retaliation before. my wife and i have been poor before. we'll be poor again if we have to but we'll be rich for our country and employees and those at fox news. >> if fox tries to retaliate, i can assure you they will hear from me. >> thank you both. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you. new evidence suggests humans were in north america more than 1 100,000 years earlier than previously thought. ahead, learn how researchers have discovered bones and why it's adding to the controversy. you're watching "cbs this morning." it's delicious! ♪ members have lost 15% more weight in the first two months than on our prior program!

8:03 am

8:04 am
don't know how people can estimate the costs since we haven't released all the details but this is going to be paid for by economic grouk and many, many special deductions and interests small why put it out now, mr. secretary, without all of the details? >> i think the american public wanted to hear about it. >> mr. secretary, the question is what kind of economic growth do you have to have in order to pay for the tax cuts. the massive tax cuts you're recommends. >> we feel confident we can get to at least 3% on an economic basis. >> when? >> that's something we said and something we're confident with. the american economy has been heal held back. it's a combination of the tax plan, regulatory relief, and a combination of our tried principles, and those three are what are going to create economic growth that has been health back in this country. >> the republican party is famous for being against debt
8:05 am
and deficits. the president less so. what impact is it going have on deficits over a ten-year period? >> again, charlie, i think the president is very concerned the debt has grown from 10 to $20 trillion and that's something we're very conscious of, and as we go through the details of the plan, we'll be comfortable we can play for most of the plan and that's something we'll be looking at when we report the ten-year numbers. >> what are you going to do about the american corporations that have a lot of cash or earnings stowed away in places around the world and not bringing it back because of taxes? >> well, charlie, it's not a surprise that people have left trillions of dollars offshore given the complexity of the system and the way it works. we've spoken to hundreds of business executives. we expect we'll get trillions of particulars back on shore and that will be invested in
8:06 am
american capitol and american jobs and that's what this is all about. >> you say it will create more jobs. how so? >> this is about creating jobs because many surveys show that 70% or more of the tax burden is borne by the tax worther. this is about putting money back in the american's pocket and create more plans an more jobs. >> as you know, a lot of reports say this is a lot of tax cuts for the rich. and if that is portrayed as such, you'll have a tough time in congress. >> well, charlie, as i've said before. the president's on jek tv is about tax simplification. we'll be lowering the rate on the high end in return for eliminating almost all of the deductions. everything else is on the table and this is about tax simplification. it's also about creating economic growth and having people invest.

8:08 am
good morning. >> good morning. president trump is saying the mixed actions helped him. he plans to renegotiate rather than cancel nafta. it was first floated by white house officials saying adviser steve back nonwas behind it. blowing up a free trade deal certain le fits but it ooh risky game to play. concerned business leaders including wall street executives have convinced the president instead to agree to negotiations once congress gives them the green light. for example the president is going to sign a memo scrutinizing china's impact on the aluminum industry but the president really needings beijing's help when it comes to issues like nafta.

8:33 am
his legendary career. dave grohl has gained a reputation of being one of the nicest guys in rock. as a drummer, guitarist, songwriter, and filmmaker, he's also known as one of the most versatile. at 21 years old grohl pounded his way to fame as a drum bhiern behind kurt cobain and the multi-platinum-selling grunge band -- >> here they are, nirvana. >> after kobane's sewer side in 1994, grohl traded in his drums for a guitar. he formed foo fighters, and in 1995 the band released their self-titled debut album written and recorded entirely by grohl. foo fighters became symbolic of '90s-style alternative rock. creating some of the johnna's
8:34 am
most recognizable anthems. with grohl as their front man, foo fighters have won 13 grammy awards over the last two deca decades. as one billboard critic said, the grunge generation didn't know it needed a springsteen or a petty, but it got one anyway. dave's mom now stepping into the spotlight. her name is virginia hanlon grohl. she's sharing personal stories about her son's rise to stardom. she spoke about pharrell williams, kelly clarkson, miranda lambert, dr. dre, josh groban. her book called the crayola stage, mothers who raised rock stars. virginia and dave grohl, welcome
8:35 am
to you both. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> love being here. >> dave, you wrote the forward to your mom's book. every musician remembers their first lesson where music is no longer just a song. in the front seat of the ford maverick, you and virginia grohl, what happened? >> we were on the way to the lake on a summer day and listening to the am radio which we also had and carly simon's "you're so vain" soing came on the radio. my mother and i always sang in the car. when the chorus came, mick jagger, he sings on the song. so first they share the line and then there's a line where they split into harmony, right, and so carly simon sings i bet you think this song is about you don't you and my mother started singing mick jagger's line.
8:36 am
>> don't you, don't you. >> right then i realized that two notes sung together like that create harmony and that creates a cord and so from that moment on, every song i heard, i was searching for harmony. >> and you said, i want to do that. >> it was -- i started listening to music, not just hearing it. >> when you talk to all the moms, virginia, every mother seems to have a story look that. you saw a lot of similarities with their mothers and their kids like it was unstoppable. >> they were tuned in in a different way. they heard sounds that -- dre heard the '70s music and he heard every instrument and every tone. and then he -- you know, what he did later was just put them all together. take them apart. >> was there an age. >> always consistently, write this down, 12 to 13. they just declared at that point, music is my life. don't expect me to do anything else.
8:37 am
>> you have a chapter, what's a mother do. >> that's my favorite chapter. it makes perfect sense. i mean, you know, my mother -- we've been close my entire life. >> you can tell. she's very cool. always -- she was a cool teacher at our high school. she was a public school teacher for 35 year, so she was the coolest. >> was she so cool that when you began sending her tape os your music she loved it? >> i don't know if she ever liked it, but she encouraged it to happen, you know. she was always very supportive. that was the thing. my mother sang when she was young. she was in acapella groups. >> the three bells. >> so there was always music around the house. i would listen to crazy punk rock music and we would listen to manhattan transfer and i would listen to david bowie and we would listen to jazz and it was always very musical. >> you know what's interesting to me? i have had a lot of friends who
8:38 am
have been very successful. they would trade it all in if they could be a rock star. >> i agree. >> not a bad gig. i've about had worse jobs. >> talk about that. you're on stauj and you look -- as long as your eyes can see people singing your song and really loving you. >> yeah. >> what's that like for you? >> it's funny. when you write music you write something that you truly deepably believe or feel onto a napkin in your garage and then you sing it into a microphone and you wind up at a stadium full of 80,000 people where they're senging it back to you, and there's something about that bond when that many people join together in the chorus. it's the most powerful feeling. >> oh, yeah. that's the great satisfaction of being live for the audience. >> absolutely. >> it brings people together. >> that's my favorite thing when i'm watching from the side of the stage from behind the
8:39 am
curtain, i watch the audience and watch that energy transfernd i see them moving and bouncing and smiling and holding up their signs and singing along. >> you said your life was changed first time you heard a crowd scream for your son. i will say this. a lot of the mothers say they had the conversation. that's where the kids, dave, came to you, and said i want to drop out of school. that happens with a lot of these rock star people. >> yes, because they suddenly -- well, not suddenly but over a long period, school is very difficult. no one is assisting them in their love of this thing they're obsessed with. >> you said that's one of the things, you didn't fight for dave in school. >> i could never make that different for him. and i was in that school. i was a part of ha whole system. but it just -- they had nothing for him. even liked him. he got along with the teachers. >> tod >> daesh, would it have been
8:40 am
