the first 100-day mark. telling the associated press it's not meaningful. countering that, a flurry of activity, aimed at raking up more wins. health care and vowing to introduce a tax plan. but looming over it, that potential government shutdown set for friday. with donald trump's presidency approaching the 100-day mark, the president and his aides are sounding a triumphant note. >> he is fulfilling his promises and doing it at breakneck speed. >> reporter: but the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, tells a different story. with 45% of americans, he's off to a poor start. his job approval rating now stands at 40%, the lowest of any president in the history of the poll. still, an nbc neabc news/"washi post" poll, says he is holding firm with his base. on twitter, the president calling the polls, very good, considering much of the media is
7:04 am
fake and almost always negative. all this as washington faces a looming deadline. if congress can't pass a budget deal by friday, the government will shut down. >> the government's going to stay open? >> i believe it will. >> reporter: one of the sticking points, republicans are looking to include funding for the president's border wall in the spending bill, a signature trump campaign promise. >> who is going to pay for that ball? >> mexico. >> reporter: the president suggesting u.s. taxpayers may need to make a downpayment, tweeting sunday, eventually, but at a later date, so we can get started early, mexico will be paying in some form for a badly needed wall. democrats taking a hard line against the wall. >> the wall is immoral, expensive, unwise. >> reporter: some republicans warning to letting the issue shut down the government. >> the last thing we can afford is to send a message to the world that the united states government is only partially functioning. >> reporter: this comes as the

7:06 am
tidying up this morning. the world is reacting to a critical election in france. two outsiders have won the preliminary round of voting. richard engel is in paris for us. hi, richard. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. french voters rejected the establishment. there were 11 candidates. they've been whittled down to two. and the ruling parties that have governed in france from the left and the right for decades were thrown out. amid high security, millions came out to vote across france. turnout was 78%, in what's considered the most important election in decades. and it was a nail-biter. too close to call until the results came in. emmanuel macron is now the front-runner to be the next french president. this is his first campaign. supporters are hoping the 39-year-old banker from the center-left can bring a new life and energy to france.
7:07 am
we will win it, he promised. long live france. he faces his polar opposite, marine le pen, from the far right. trailing by a few percent, le pen is anti-immigration, wants out of the e.u., to drop the euro, and taking a page out of the strategy book from president trump. it's time for the french people to be free of the arrogant elite, she said, promising to close borders and stop terrorism. the two candidates will face each other in a runoff in two weeks. analysts say macron has the clearest path to victory and that following trump may have actually worked against le pen. >> trump was a counterexample for france. people have been looking at the -- what's happening in the u.s., with very critical eyes. >> reporter: now, with two weeks to go, france is at a cross roads. there has been a trend in global politics towards nationalism.
7:08 am
first with brexit, and then president trump's election. france can be where that trend comes to an end. >> richard engel, in paris, thank you. there's new tension this morning between the u.s. and north korea. the regime is now threatening to sink a u.s. aircraft carrier. and over the weekend, it detained an american citizen, as he was preparing to leave that country. nbc's kelly cobiella, is in seoul, south korea, with the latest on this. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: a lot of talking overnight, matt. the leaders of both japan and china speaking to president donald trump by phone. the choinese leader urging restraint on all sides, as "the uss carl vinson" comes closer to the peninsula. college student otto warmbier, and now, a professor. the north korean university where he worked said his name is tony kim. and he was detained at pyongyang
7:09 am
airport saturday, leaving the country after several weeks of service teaching. and his detention is not connected to his work at the university. kim is in his 50s. was doing aide work and was with his wife at the airport when the north koreans took him away. another bargaining chip, says former ambassador, bill richardson, who has helped free prisoners before and is working on warmbier's case. >> we've been able to deal with the father and the grandfather and the old regime. but under kim jong-un, he detains americans, he's detained three now. but we don't know what he wants in return. he doesn't communicate on that level. >> reporter: instead, more threats. the regime sunday warning it's combat-ready to sink a u.s. afr aircraft carrier. and threatening australia with a nuclear strike, as vice president mike pence wrapped up a two-day trip there.
7:10 am
>> all options are on the table. >> reporter: this morning as "the uss carl vinson" heads towards the korean peninsula, south korea is talking to washington about holding joint drills. the region on-edge, unsure of what north korea's supreme leader will do next. there's a lot of speculation and concern that north korea could carry out either its sixth nuclear test or a missile test some time this week. china has warned north korea not to do either. meantime, we have that big meeting at the white house today. all 15 members of the united nations security council set to visit. matt? savannah? >> all right, kelly. thank you very much. nikki haley, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, joining us now. ambassador haley, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> i want to talk about the american being detained in north korea in a second. but when you take that ziincide and you combine it with a threat to sink a u.s. aircraft carrier
7:11 am
and a threat to conduct a nuclear strike against australia. when you and your counterparts meet this morning, what can you come up with to rein in north korea that hasn't been tried in the past and haven't failed in the past? >> kim jong-un is starting to flex his muscles because he feels the pressure. last week the security council unanimously contempted what north korea is doing with their testing. china has been helping putting pressure on him. and he's trying to show strength to his country. >> we've been talking about containing north korea for decades now and what's not working. what new can you come up with? >> working with china for the first time, they've really been our partner in holding him at bay. it's a new day when you have china and the united states working together on a statement to condemn north korea. they put pressure on him. he feels it. that's why he's responding this way. an i think it is a different day. what we said from the beginning
7:12 am
and i will continue to say, the united states is not looking for a fight. don't give us a reason to have one. >> it's interesting that you say that the you think he's responding to the pressure by flexing muscle, by conducting more nuclear tests. i don't have to tell you, you have an unstabled ed adversary there. does the tough talk and the rhetoric, if china doesn't help us here, we may do it ourselves. we may consider a pre-emptive strike. do you worry about the point of no return with words? >> no. that's not the case. and keep in mind, he's trying to get the confidence of his own te people. when he does these things, he's not doing them to all of us, as much as he's trying to prove to his own people he can handle this. he's very much starting to feel the pressure. you're starting to see him get paranoid. and i think you'll see pressure coming from all parts of the community. and we have to keep the pressure up. >> i whi that savannah is getting at, when you have someone as unstable as kim
7:13 am
jong-un, do you worry that words might force him into a catastrophic mistake? >> no. and i think if you look at what's happening now, if there's a catastrophic mistake it's going to be because he's continuing to instigate an issue. we're going to continue to be stable. we're going to continue to have the international community stable. it's the reason that none of us are even trying to pick a fight with him. but we'll have to wait and see. what i can tell you is the international community is very united. >> ambassador haley, every leader says all options are on the table. they always say that. is a pre-emptive strike against north korea being considered? is the administration actively planning for that? >> we're not going to do anything unless he gives us reason to do something. so, our goal -- >> that's what reason? what would that reason be? do you have that threshold in your mind? >> if you see him attack a military base. if you see an intercontinental ballistic missile, obviously, we're going to do that. right now, we're saying don't test. don't use nuclear missiles.
7:14 am
don't do anymore actions. and i think he's understanding that. and china is helping put that pressure on. >> if he tests another intercontinental ballistic missile, if he were to test another nuclear device, you say, obviously, we're going to do that, do you mean military retaliation? >> i think then the president steps in and decides what's going to happen. >> let me ask you real quickly before i leave you. do you have any information on this american being detained? his whereabouts or why he's being detained? >> it's hard to get information out of north korea, obviously. we're doing everything we can. this makes three detainees that they have right now. and again, this is him trying to pick a fight with us. and what we're going to have to do is work very hard to find out information and see what we need to do to get the three out safely. >> ambassador nikki haley. ambassador, always nice to see you. >> thanks so much. breaking overnight, u.s. defense secretary, jim mattis, making an unannounced visit to

kidnapper, tad cummins, tells us, she talked to her brother three times this weekend. daphne quinn wants everybody to know he's not a monster. >> he's done this horrible thing that he has to pay for. but he's still my brother. and i love him. >> reporter: cummins is scheduled to be arraigned in sacramento on federal kidnapping charges. his sister says he doesn't believe he kidnapped elizabeth. >> i asked him why? why would he do this? and the answer he gave me was, she wanted to run away. and she wanted to leave. and he didn't want her to go alone. and he went with her to know she was safe. >> reporter: the 15-year-old and her former teacher were found is 2,000 miles away in a cabin in northern california, with no electricity or running water. during their 39 days on the run, the bare was caught on surveillance video at an oklahoma walmart. and police say they stayed at

protect that mother. but in the background, we see the pilot. and the pilot is concerned. the pilot -- when we get on an airplane, we want our pilot to be calm, cool, collected, as he takes off or she takes off into the skies. so, this is -- this is a real, real problem. and the mother told me, point-blank, her concern was her child, who almost got hit by the stroller, did not. but almost got hit by the stroller. >> did she get hit by the stroller? >> she did not. but her fright, if you will, and you hear her wailing, is because her child almost did. >> there's a big difference in that american airlines has come out immediately saying, we are sorry. this is not the way we behave. that's different than the way united handled your other high-profile case with dr. dao. how is dr. dao doing emotionally and physically? >> he's hurt. both. he's hurt. and he's of the mindset -- go
7:45 am
ahead. >> no, no. >> he's of the mindset, this is an example. and the american airlines incident an example of why we need fairness, dignity and being treated right. >> the reason that dr. dao video resonates with so many people is because we've all been in a seat, about to take off, and if somebody comes up to you and says you got to get out of that seat, we would react. but is there something we're not seeing? is there another piece of video, tom, that explains how this escalated to this point? >> there may be. i don't have it. i'm hoping with all of the passengers on that plane, we'll eventually have it. we're hoping that dr. dao, being taken off that plane, like a sack of potatoes, okay, is going to resonate with people. and this latest incident with american airlines will resonate with people. we live in the age of cell phone video.
7:46 am
so, corporations have to take heed. >> once and for all -- because we all recall that united in the initial days stated that your client, dr. dao, had been, quote, belligerent and disruptive. setting aside whether that would in any world justify what had happened, was he belligerent? was he disruptive? >> no. there's other video that does show that. he's calmly in his seat. his ticket was accepted, scanned. he boarded. he was seat belted. all the video shows him quietly saying, i want to go home. i am not getting off. and interestingly, you can't do that. after someone is in their seat, that's not the time to say, we're overbooked or we need to get an employee from point "a" to point "b." >> as united airline made you an offer or dr. dao an offer? >> no. that's not happening right now. >> how much would a face-to-face apology from the ceo of united airlines, how far would that go
7:47 am
with dr. dao? >> probably not very far. mr. munoz had that opportunity to publicly, first of all, apologize, and he didn't. and then, he called the dr. belligerent. then, he finally, mea culpa. so, i think we're past that stage of needing dr. munoz to say anything. >> lawsuits coming in the united and the american incident? >> i don't know about the american incident. united, yeah. >> thank you so much. we appreciate your time. >> pleasure. up next, dylan is in the orange room with a surprising reason people are talking about the chain smokers' latest concert. first on a monday m good morning! um, i got something on this, but i'm not quite sure what it is. it's jelly. definitely jelly. it's already coming out.

8:41 am
a long way. and i have tips for you if you're going to the drugstore and you're afraid of what to buy. there's one tip to look for. if you get a blunt edge, that will look heavier and unnatural. you want something that looks flaired and tapers. our own eyelashes grow in cycles. that's a clear indication of a falsey, that is the blunt edge. i apply my lashes underneath. i glue them, so when i look down, you don't see them. >> these, you get the glue and stick them on. >> look for a band that's clear. if you get a tight shot. one side has a black band. and this side is a clear band. when you pick up the black band, and you f you apply it crookedly, you will see.
8:42 am
>> ways to stick stuff on. >> when it comes to glue, beware if you have a latex allergy. another tip, i have a graphic. you go apply the glue to the lash, don't apply it on top of the band the way most people do. apply it to the underside at the base of the lashes. that's the part that's going to sit on your lash. that's an easier way to get it to stick. >> can a regular person put them on properly? >> yes. >> what is that? >> this is called a fish-tail tweezer. this allows you, without using tweezers. to press the lashes into your natural one. >> if you like the individuals, not the big band. >> just little strip, flirt cosmetics, it cranks out, if you get really close. it cranks out miniindividual
8:43 am
strips. >> mary puts them on. i don't know what you are talking about here. but they're magnetically applied? >> yes. teeny tiny magnet strips. this is one-two cosmetics. you see the little black lines are magnets along the strip. >> what's it tisticking to. >> sarah is great at applying these. she just applied the bottom piece and she's done. this is a revolutionary idea. you have to experiment to get the hang of it. but know that certain eye shapes, you know, are going to require a little more work. >> i think it's time to go to the professionals. this is if you want to get eyelash extensions. who do we have here? >> this is courtney. she is between new york and dallas, very in demand. she has girls showing up every couple weeks to get maintenance. but let's talk about a full set. here we have on careen. she has one of her eyes done.
8:44 am
take a look. >> you're doing an eyelash extension, right? >> right. >> what does that mean, actually? >> it's individual, one-by-one, to attach one, and there's a new technique that you can put two to six lightweight lashes on one lash. it's very lightweight, very safe. >> if you have to guess, how many lashes are on careen's eye? 200? >> i would say 5,000. there's a lot. >> how many did you apply? >> i applied the very fine ones to each individual lash. they kind of cluster out to lightweight. there's a lot of lashes. but they're all individually separated so that each lash is separated. so, it doesn't cause damage. >> how much 'caudoes it cost? >> $99 for a full set and up. and you must seek out a licensed professional. you're dealing with an eye area. >> how often do you do this? >> this will last the natural

9:10 am
we are deeply sorry for the pain we have caused this passenger and her family and to any other passengers affected by the incident. after arriving in dallas, the airline suspended the flight attendant, upgraded the woman to first class, offering her a $1,000 travel voucher. that's how, now, i any they handle it quickly. >> they should. >> you look at social media. and you say, you know, there's great things and bad things about social media and about everything happens in the world is being exposed. but it's accountability. right? and in your personal life, i'm like, that's not okay. but when you're talking about a business, you're talking about a flight attendant whose job is customer care. and they act that way, they should be accountable. should be held accountable. and i love the fact people are, like, ha ha. >> cell phones everywhere. can't do anything. >> in a statement, the union representing the airlines flight attendants urges the public not to jump to conclusions. it appears another passenger may
9:11 am
have threatened a flight att attendant with violence, which is a violation of law and no small matter. you get it quickly. >> sometimes, you know, regardless of the circumstance, i -- round of applause for the passenger. even though legally, he was in the wrong of standing up and threatening. it's like, yo, dude. do not do that to people. there's no reason to ever grab anything out of a woman's hand. you just don't do it. no reason to do that. if reality, if he had done that to him in the street -- different game, player. can we end on a happy story? >> kenny g. still has the curls. saxophonist kenny g. aboard a flight leaving tampa. a woman next to him was trying to raise money for a cancer charity. >> what does kenny g. do? he whips out the saxophone and plays an impromptu concert mid flight. he collected more than $2,000
