7:03 am
>> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump is raising the possibility of a military confrontation with north korea. the president says conflict with the north is possible over its nuclear and missile programs, though, he prefers a diplomatic solution. the warning came during a reuters interview yesterday, two days before mr. trump's 100th day in office. >> well, there's a chance that we could end up having a major major conflict with north korea. >> newly released video appears to show a live drill in north korea. they fired artillery rounds from a beach. d
7:04 am
military options against north korea. he's at the pentagon. david, good morning. >> good morning. there's no doubt the u.s. would win what the president calls a major major conflict with north korea, but the loss of life and destruction of property would be horrendous on both sides. this morning north korean state run television aired video of this week's massive live fire exercise. it shows multiple rocket launchers and artillery firing as the country's leader kim jong-un and his officers cheer them on. it happened in the same week an american nuclear powered submarine armed with cruise missiles pulled into a south korean port. a b 52 bomber patrolled over the korean peninsula and the aircraft carrier vinson came within striking range of pyongyang. north korea put out a
7:05 am
would sink the carrier but the fact is they would be unable to complete the devastating attack. experts like senator jack reed of the armed services committee said there are no good military options for destroying north korea's nuclear options. >> there are military options but they are risky. >> nobody knows that better than admiral harris who has the power to destroy north korea but not before millions could unleash a barrage on the south korean capital. >> 25 million people in a relatively small area within artillery range of the dmz. >> u.s. has patriot anti-missile batteries in south korea, and in the coming days, a second defense system called thaad would become operational but those are designed to shoot down guided missiles like
7:06 am
they cannot defend against an old-fashioned artillery rocket. >> isn't it incredible? >> it is, sir. and thaad is not designed to counter those kinds of basic weapons. >> and what is designed to do that? anything? >> we do not have those kinds of weapons that can counter those roths once they're launched. >> it would seem like this is a standoff in which each side has the capability to inflict unacceptable damage on the other, but admiral harris said this is the worst crisis he's seen, and in a crisis, all it takes to start a war is for one side to miscalculate. gayle? >> all right. thank you very much, david. president trump says that he wants south korea to pay for the controversial thaad missile system. some oppose that.
7:07 am
equipment you've ever seen. shoots missiles right out of the sky. we want to protect them, i want to protect them. we're going to protect them. but they should pay for that. >> president trump says he wants to renegotiate a trade deal. in response they say they have no plans to do that or pay for thaad. today is president trump's 99th day in office and his presidential goals are still in limbo. house leaders put off a vote on the newest plan to appeal obamacare. congress will vote today on a one-week budget extension to keep the government from shutting down. tomorrow margaret brennan is at the white house. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. senate democrats are pushing that short-term funding deal to the brink, and while president trump appears to be narrowly avoiding a government shutdown until that budget extension is passed, the federal government is still set to run out of money at midnight. >> reporter: during these
7:08 am
100 days. >> on his plan he says they'll shut down government. >> another attempt came up short, even as republicans worked all day and into the night to line up votes. >> they are in a lose/lose/lose situation. >> house minority leader nancy pelosi dared the republicans to shut down the government, placing a high-stakes bet meant to discourage them from voting on health care. the 11th hour vote to suspend it past midnight paid off. >> i think we're making very good progress. >> before the latest blork mag nuv, house leader paul ryan said momentum behind the health care bill picked up for most
7:09 am
republicans. >> we feel like we're on the right track. >> but republicans decided forcing the vote wasn't worth the risk. majority leader kevin mccarthy said the house will vote today on a one-week extension of government funding. earlier this week they used the threat of a shutdown to win two other concessions, dropping the demand for border wall funding and agreeing to pay health care subsidies for low income americans. >> the democrats have come in at the last minute and thrown a lot of monkey rehn. s in to get this thing done despite president trump's efforts to show good faith to keep this going. >> if congress does sign off on this short-term deal, it gives them just one week, gayle, to settle some of the more complicated issues. >> thank you very much. the pentagon has joined the list. retired general michael flen was paid about $34,000 for a speech
7:10 am
in moscow nearly 18 months ago. newly released documents show he got an official letter earlier saying he could not receive foreign fees without permission. the white house press secretary says this has nothing to do with the trump administration. >> all of that clearance was made during the obama administration and apparently with knowledge of the trip that he took. so that's how the process works, and i welcome the department of defense's i.g.'s review. >> congressman elijah cummins says there is no evidence that flynn told the pentagon that the russians paid him. with us now is united states attorney general jeff sessions. welcome. >> good morning. >> i know you excused yourself and recused yourself from some of the things going on in the campaign. but having said that, did any of this information come to the campaign or during the campaign? >> i'm not aware of that. i'm recusedro
7:11 am
and anything that's necessary to be donewill be done, but we in the didn't of justice don't confirm or deny the existence of investigations. >> with regard to mr. flynn, is this kind of thing when you're the nation's chief legal officer a violation of the law? >> i don't know about it to comment and i think it would be inappropriate for me to comment on it. what i would say is we have great cabinet members. we even got people doing super jobs. like i was at the border with general kelly, homeland security last week. we receive a 77% reduction h the number of illegal entries since december at the border. that's a dramatic thing. it's exciting to see that happen. >> let me ask you this. i know hindsight is 20/20, but do you think the trump administration could have done a better job in vetting mr. flynn that. >> these things are not easy to discover. i'm not sure if it's inpropriety or not. i don't have e
7:12 am
job of putting together fabulous people in the cabinet. >> it would be a mistake to reveal he had received this payment. >> i just don't know enough to comment. i don't think it's appropriate enough for me to talk about it. >> got it. let's talk immigration. you talked a 27% drop in illegal crossings. why do you need a border wall? >> we're on the verge of creating what the american people have wanted for 30, 40 years which is a lawle system of immigration. we admit 1.1 million each year to lawful permanent residence in the united states the right way. we need to end the illegality. >> you've got a republican congress. this is so rare. and they won't even include it and not one republican supports a border wall. that's in your own party. >> yeah. we'll get funding for the wall. it's important to do so.
7:13 am
i would just say this year we could use some money this year, but it's not critical because this year sends september 30th. >> what you need is next year and move forward. >> do you get any funding from mexico as the president promised? >> there are a lot of ways we can fund the wall through, in effect, on charges, particularly those ending unlawfully. >> you've got a problem. the state has a problem. you don't have enough people to do the job. go ahead. >> we do have a hard time getting people confirmed. i've gotten 12 confirmed by the senate. only one yesterday took office. my fabulous deputy. >> you've nominated somebody for all of those jobs. >> virtually. >> virtual lil. >> a fwad number. i'm not sure we're over half. >> why are you having a problem nominating people? >> it's not a problem. you have to get fbi backgrounds before you nominate them. if you don't do the proper vettinhe
7:14 am
not doing proper vetting before nominating. good backgrounds are important. >> let me ask you. there's a lot in the news about fox news channel and sexual harassme harassment. we know that the justice department is inspecting and the u.s. postal service also look into that. what is that investigation about? >> i cannot confirm or deny the existence of any investigation. those matters if they are current will occur on their own, but we in the department don't talk about any investigations. >> and you're the chief legal officer. when the president criticizes the ninth circuit in significant ways, is that a good idea? is it appropriate for the president to consider -- i mean to criticize the 9th circuit? >> they're not above being talked about. >> is it right for president to do that? >> it's right for the president as he's done historically over the centuries to express opinions about judicial opinions. th
7:15 am
appointment. their pay can't be cut and their decisions can be commented on. and the one that he criticized, i think, was wrong. >> but his new supreme court justice had some reservations to the president speaking on issues like this and he expressed it. >> i don't see that. i see one nominee recently said we we've got a lifetime appointment. nothing wrong with people commenting about their opinions and that's what i feel. >> look. the judges in this country are so important. i respect them. i've practiced before them for many years. i have the highest regard for them. the greatest threat to tin pen dense of the judiciary is if judges become more political. people cease to believe they're deciding opinions based on law and the fact. >> is that what you believe? >> i'm worried about it. i do not -- i believe the executive order the president issues was
7:16 am
yep. >> i was talking about the travel matter, but that's the one before the ninth circuit. the question is the order itself improper? does it in anyway improperly discriminate? >> what do you as an american want to do about the ninth circuit? >> i think some of the judges in the ninth circuit have gone a bit too far in practicing the law as it is written and advancing an agenda they may have personally. the ninth circuit has been criticized for that tendency more than any other circuit. >> what should be donesome. >> the main thing is appoint judges and
7:17 am
ninth circuit that will be responsible and more restrained in their actions, but you're not prohibited from saying i disagree with what you're doing or else you've created a superior branch of government. we have three. >> reince priebus said the nine ukt circuit is going bananas. is that a legal term? >> it's not a legal term. >> mr. attorney general, always good to have you here. >> thank you. >> hope you come back. thank you so much. we'll bring you a special edition of "cbs this morning" live on monday morning from the white house. john dickerson will interview donald trump on "face the nation." a law enforcement agency has joined the probe into the business practices of the fox cable news channel. theni

8:01 am
administration could have done a better job in vetting mr. flynn? >> well, theseng thie s arnot easy to discover. what happened, i'm not sure if it's an impropriety or not. >> how are you going to prepare for this? how does one prepare for a big interview when this president is doing other interviews and you want it to be splseciaome. >> i would say, what would charlie, norah, and gayle would do, and then i meditate on that for a while, charlie. president obama accepting a $400,000 fee for speak. >> paper boy, paper boy. obama is get 4g $00,000 to be a keynote speaker. he's probably going to give a very important policy speech entitled "the four boats i'm going to buy." i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president trump is raising the
8:02 am
with north korea. his warning came just before his 00th day in office. >> well, there's a chance that we could end up having a major major conflict with north korea, absolutely. >> newly released video from north korea state television shows kim jong-un watching a military drill. the video reportedly shows two massive live fire exercise. it marked the 85th anniversary of the founding of north korea's army. >> president trump was asked in that same reuters interview yesterday if kim jong-un is rational. he said, quote, whether or not he's rational, i have no opinion on it. i hope he's rational. the president said he hoped the situation could be resolved, quote, diplomatically, but it's very difficult. >> congress will vote today on a short-term budget extension to keep the government from shutting down tomorrow. the spending measure would keep
8:03 am
week while congress negotiates a long-term budget. bernie sanders is with us from capitol hill ahead of that vote. good morning, senator. >> good morning, norah. >> are you confident the government will avoid a government shutdown? >> i certainly hope so. it would be a disaster if the government shuts down. i hope we do our jobs and make sure it stays healthy. >> let me ask you about the interview that president trump gave roy turs regarding the, quit, major major conflict with north korea. what did you think of that? >> i think the president said he wants to do everything he can toy a void that conflict. when you're talking major major conflict, you're talking nuclear war. the goal is to work as strongly as we can with china. china, i think, receives about 80% of the exports from north korea. they're in a position to tighten the screws on north
8:04 am
tell them that they cannot continue their missile program or nuclear program. but what concerns me right now i have to tell you sitting in the congress is these incredible tax breaks that president trump and the leadership are proposing. it just seems to me at a time of massive income and wealth and equality, the idea that we would give $353 billion in tax breaks to the top 0.2 of 1% while cutting back on education and health care and the needs of our children and seniors is, to me, totally absurd, and we've got to do everything we can to oppose that. >> that's what i wanted to ask you. he goes on to say america's richest families and their hares will benefit from this. can that get through congress? >> look. what you have now is a republican leadership doing the business of the coke brother, the second wealthiest
8:05 am
america who spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year to elect republicans. i think at a time when the top of 0.1% own it when so many people are hurting, when the middle class is shrinking, the idea that you cut programs that people desperately need to give tax breaks to the billionaire class is totally insane. >> you've said that before, senator, many times, even during the campaign. what can you do with this congress in. >> we can rally the american people to say when you had a president who campaigns on supposedly behalf of the working class of this country, that he's being totally hypocritical and dishonest. giving tax breaks to billionaires is not standing up. >> a poll shows 96% of those who voted for him still support him. why do you think they're sticking with him? >> the poll also
8:06 am
the least popular. i think it speaks to the fact that democratic party has not been as strong as it should be in making clear what side it's on. the fact that we're the only one to guarantee rights for all people, the fact that the middle class today work longer hours for lower wages. they need to expose trump's hypocrisy. >> tomorrow's the 100th anniversary of his presidency. is there anything you can look at it and say, donald trump, you've done good. >> attaboy. >> i think there are some things. gist of his 100 days and what really bothers me the most is not just his hypocrisy of telling working families, vote for me, i ee going to stand up for you and then doing the opposi a
8:07 am
that hypocrisy is what is disturbing to many, many people. >> can we just hear one thing he's done wellsome. >> he's talked about the need to build our crumb bling infrastructure and put in $1 billion. if he follows through on that, that's important. >> we can create up to 15 billion bridges and jobs. >> senator, do you believe the president has taken us closer to war with north korea in. >> no. this is a very complicated issue. north korea is a dangerous isolated country that is working on nuclear and missile systems. the goal now is to bring everything together. erp china, to tell north korea economically they're not going to survive if they continue the development of nuclear weaponsnd. >> president obama is going to speak at an event here in new york, wall street inme
8:08 am
bank for $400,000 fee. you were critical of hillary carolina taking money like that. what do you say of president obama making an even larger fee? >> look. president obama is a friend of mine. i think as a president he represented the country with inted gript and intelligence, but i think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of wall veto and the big money interests. i think it is unfortunate that president obama doing this. you know, right now you have president trump's key economic adviser gary cohn. wall street has incredible power and i would have hoped the president would not have given a speech like this. >> are you saying if you were offered $400,000 to give a speech, you would turn it down? >> if i was -- if wall street offers me, yeah, i don't want wall street's money.
8:09 am
i must tell you i don't have to worry about that. i haven't gotten too many invitatio invitations. >> i bet there are some people. >> never say never, senator. >> let us know if the phone rings today. >> i will. >> senator sanders. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. and a remiejder, "cbs this morning" will broadcast from inside the white house on mobltd. we'll have more of john dickerson's interview with president trump which debuts sunday on "face the nation." >> busy weekend. a lot to look forward to on monday. the search for a woman and a dangerous cult -- >> a cult that stole children, brain washed and starved them forced them to take lsd, their leader thought she was jesus christ and she eluded a worldwide manhunt until it came to a stunning end in this house
