heather: michael jordan is an alum of chapel hill. you know who else? vin scully. bill: we gotta run. i hope you get a drumstick. happy turkey day. jon: president-elect trump rolling out plabs for what he and his administration want to get done. those remarks released in a video posted by a team on youtube. good morning, welcome to happening now. melissa: i'm melissa francis in today for jenna lee. potential cabinet members stream in and out of trump tower. most items on the president-elect's to-do list don't need an approval from
8:01 am
congress. bill: peter doocy live from new york city where the parade continues. >> the president-elect can't give hillary clinton a pardon but he can give her a pass. that's what the transition team is signaling he intend to do after taking office. kellyanne conway explains why the former secretary of state and the democratic nominee will not be investigated for criminal activity surroundinger emails or her family's foundation by a trump administration. >> i think hillary clinton still has to face the fact that a majority of americans don't find her to be honest or trustworthy. but if donald trump can help her heal, perhaps that's a good thing. reporter: that announcement is a change from trump telling hillary clinton on the debate
8:02 am
stage that he would appoint a federal prosecutor to probe her or she would be in jail. but another adviser and cabinet appointee says this is the right call. >> there is a tradition in american politics that of you win an election you put things behind you, and that's the decision he reached. that's perfectly consistent with an historical pattern. things come up, you say lot of things, even some bad things might happen. then you put it behind you in order to unite the nation. reporter: an hour and a half from right now mr. trump will meet with the "new york times" after canceling that meeting overnight because he said he thought thatted been unfair to him. somebody from the times said he will meet with our publisher off the record and that will be followed by an on the record
8:03 am
meeting with our journalists and editorial columnists. the president-elect says he has been meeting with people who will help him run the government for the next 8 years. and one of the names on the list we just got, dr. ben carson. so president-elect trump's plan includes proposals on defense, trade and immigration. how much can he change in 100 days? susan, how would you characterize the overall thrust of this 100-day plan. >> this is all about jobs, jobs, jobs. it was bill clinton who coined
8:04 am
the phrase, "it's the economy, stupid." but hillary lost that mantra to president-elect trump during the campaign. and now what he's doing is talking about repealing the trans-pacific partnership. that's a direct message to his voters in the midwest. it's a direct message to say i hear you loud and clear. i care about your state and we are going to bring those manufacturing jobs back or at least we are going to try. jon: one of the ways he hopes to do that is by canceling the trans-pacific partnership. >> we have known for a while that this is dead on arrival. the chamber of commerce and many republicans will try to work with president obama to try to push this through in a lame duck session of congress next month. that's obviously not going to happen. i don't think it would have
8:05 am
happened if hillary clinton had won. the challenge is going to be there will be some pushback from some members of congress. that withdrawing from tpp emboldens china at a time when the chinese are being very militarily aggressive in the south china seas, and this might not be the right time to do that. i think he will do it anyway. but it's not going to be without some disagreement. there is a lot he can do that first day with regard to executive action. just what is the plan to undo obamacare. how far are they going to go in repealing or turning it back. what is that plan so they can do tax reform in 150 days. what is the costly infrastructure plan. donald trump says the trillion dollars or steve ba ban bannon.
8:06 am
once he gets into work he has to do with the congress that involves compromise, things will get more difficult. jon: he needs perhaps goat higher than the low-hanging fruit, right? the honeymoon period for an incoming president is generally in those first 100 days. >> right. but a lot of the things he promised, the building the wall, the deportation. the temporary ban and muslims entering the country. those are things you cannot do by executive action. those things require congress. and it's going to be an uphill battle. i talked to lindsey graham last week. he was saying he has no idea what the immigration plan is. the real question is if you are going to make sure you send the children that were born in the country and have been living here in the country back to
8:07 am
their countries of origin. these are the controversial things. but right now what he's going to be doing in the first 1. >> some days are more non-controversial items. but these are things he campaigned on that got him elected in the midwest. so he needs to do that. he needs to send the right message to voters and he will be tackling, the obamacare repeal, you can't do that until a bunch of reconciliation. it will require a 60-vote thresh healed. that will be in march or april. so these are things he's going to take on over time. but the first 00 days will be all about repealing regulations. what he can do by executive action. we have seen the stock market soaring. he will be lowering taxes and pushing back regulations.
8:08 am
jon: he said during this campaign that he will let his children run the company. is that enough? >> it doesn't appear to be enough. the trump children's definition of a blind trust is not something they planned on. trump said it's not about the money, it's about the country. i'll pass it on to my children and we'll build every appropriate barrier. they are not giving any indication they will pro diewlts appropriate separation. it will be an outrageous problem if he doesn't build that up in the next 60 days. so farther not giving any indication of that. i thought when he canceled the meeting with the "new york times," he will be answering questions on that. why did he talk to nigel farage about his opposition to wind farms. he will have to clarify and
8:09 am
build that separation in two months. melissa: an update on a flurry of four shootings on police officers over the weekend. in san antonio the suspect is under arrest. he says he was angry at the court system for them not letting him see his son and he took his anger out on someone who doesn't deserve it. he shot a police officer while he sat in his squad car writing a ticket for another driver. a police officer in solution was shot twice in the face. he survived miraculously. the police chief was at the rally and the hundreds of
8:10 am
marchers who took part. >> sometimes those who support the police aren't as loud as those who want to attack police officers. >> my husband is a police officer, and we are friends of the officer that was shot. i'm from ferguson. and all of this is close to home. >> it sends a big chill. i talk to a lot of spouses of police officers who can say that could have been my husband or significant other. melissa: the rally ended with a moment of silence with the crowd singing let their be peace on earth. jon: severe weather on tap that could complicate your thanksgiving travel plans. january nice dean has more on that next. an aftershock five years after one of the world's most devastating earthquakes hitting the same part of japan after a

tsunami destroyed the fukushima nuclear plant.

jon: the driver of the school bus that crashed, leaving five children dead has been arrested. police say they believe speed was a factor. reporter: ntsb investigators have arrived on scene in chattanooga. they will be joining local
8:22 am
police who have determined that no other vehicles were involved in this crash. investigators suspect speed was a factor. when the school bus left the roadway and struck a tree, killing five students on board. >> the chattanooga police department is looking at if enforcement is warrants, and we are looking at what caused the accidents to try to prevent it. reporter: the 24-year-old bus driver phase charges of vehicular homicide and reckless driving. investigators decided to keep the elementary school open today to provide counselors for students and members of the community seeking support after this unthinkable tragedy. >> the most horrible thing in the world is for a parent to mourn the loss of a child.
8:23 am
today the city praying for these families. reporter: 12 student remain hospitalized. six of them are in intensive care. jon: what an awful story. melissa: what kind of legal fallout could there be from this tragedy? joining me is lis weihl. we also have the former head county prosecutor. nothing will bring these children back. so there is no punishment that's really enough. but from the eyes of the law, this driver was reckless. what kind danger does he face or punishment? >> he's 2 years old. he's charged with five counts of vehicular homicide. and the tennessee law is all over the place. it's as low as 3 years per count
8:24 am
to as high as 15-20 years per count. it could be consecutive or concurrent. thats' vehicular homicide. the other charges, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, the deadly weapon being the bus itself. each count of that, 1 to 6 years. when you look at the law, that sounds like a lot of meat. up to 20 years per count. when you really get down to it, this law is anemic because you get to probation, and mandatory minimums, and a good defense lawyer could get this down to 8 hours in jail per count. melissa: what does it mean to be reckless? i will see a bus driver going too fast, changing lanes, running lights. what are we talking about here to raise it to the level? is it about the accident or what they saw beforehand of how he
8:25 am
was driving. how do you establish that. >> mere happening of an accident is not prove of recklessness of the law it's a legal definition. it's a substantial disregard for a known risk. what are some the cases. d.u.i.s, under the influence. we standed the definition. now we are talking about speeding. any violation of the rules of the road that somebody is that could potentially cause injury. so speeding in this particular case could be considered a substantial and unjustifiable risk. if they connect they lost control of the vehicle over speed, that was reckless. >> police not was over the 30 miles an hour. and we know he was weaving within the lanes.
8:26 am
melissa: as a parent i watch this and you think if i were pulled over and had my child in the back of the car and they weren't in a car seat or belted in, that's serious. >> as a prosecutor there were many incidents in which we proposed responsibility on parents into sure their children are safe. here is the legal issue. because these children are being given over to the state because the state required mandatory obligation. the state has a legal responsibility to act with the same care that a parent would because these are minors. congress for years has been debating this issue. we are spending pork barrel money on issues that don't affect the health, safety and welfare. they can't put seat belts in buses. melissa: what is the law here? the last time i went on a field
8:27 am
trip with my son, there were seat belts for each kid. they said everybody buckle up before we go anywhere. is that an anomaly? are there seat belt laws on buses anywhere in this country? >> six states. new york and new jersey were two of the first ones. >> these bus accidents are happening all the time. we need a legislative response. it is amoral to me that they will not correct this problem and fund it so our precious youth are protected. >> it's a mandatory thing that we have to hand over our children to the schools or we go to prison, we go to jail for not doing that. when we hand our children over, shouldn't they get the protection of the state with those mandatory seat belts? the answer is no, it's too expensive.
8:28 am
>> if the same thing happened to a parent with the child and there was no accident. jon: some strong word from the ohio congressman who just lost his bid for nancy pelosi's seat for house minority leader. what he's saying about the future of the democratic party and is he gaining momentum against one of capitol hill's most powerful figures. the dow hitting 19,000 today, an all-time high that's bringing your 401k up with it.

♪ jon: right now fighting words from the democrat looking to unseat nancy pelosi as house minority leader. ohio congressman tim ryan saying president-elect donald trump's victory sent a strong message to the establishment, but he used a bit more colorful language. this as nancy pelosi just sent a letter to her colleagues to shore up her cause. meantime, congressman ryan says he fears for the future of the democratic party. >> i'm pulling the fire alarm right now, is what i'm doing in the be democratic party. i believe we're in denial of what's happened. i'm pulling the fire alarm because the house is burning down. jon: joining us now, hank shine coffer, former democratic consultant for the clinton-gore campaign, also with us, patrick griffith.
8:33 am
welcome to both of you. hank, to you first. is the democratic party in denial? >> look, it's not unusual for party leaders to be in denial after they take a whipping, what is occurred last week, and change is not an unusual thing. look at the history of the republicans also. the republican went through significant leadership changes, and one of those outcomes was newt gingrich and the fall of his successors, a period of loss, gain, loss, gain, and now the republicans so getting rid of leadership when you have an electoral debacle is not new. jon: well, does that mean it's nancy pelosi's time to go? you said republicans got rid of their leadership. >> it would not be an unusual outcome. is it possible, yes? likely? who knows. with all the punditry left behind us, it's ultimately about counting who's got the votes. jon: now she ascended to the speaker of the house position back in 2006. she has written a letter to her colleagues, her democratic
8:34 am
colleagues in the house, suggesting that there should be changes ahead. she says we've all been shaken by the election of donald trump and by what it means for the american people whom it is our honor and responsibility to champion. the letter goes on: in the course of my conversations with members, i was especially interested in their desire to have a stronger role in their committees. this is music to my ears because that is exactly what was essential to our success in 2006. so, patrick, can she turn to the 2006 playbook and keep her speakership? i'm sorry, minority leader position. >> you know, jon, i don't really know. but they talk about those phi stages of grief -- five stages of grief, and i agree with hank. at the end of the day, it is not unusual after change to do a postmortem in, you know, an election and to try and change things. the problem is the democrats, including the minority leader, are finding themselves thumb-sucking in a corner, telephoning the outcome of this election -- denying the outcome of this election is no way to
8:35 am
enter a 12-step program. you start by admitting you have a problem. remember that dumpster fire we republicans had going for a long, long time? well, that's going on in the democrats' backyard right now. the problem has been that the democratic party that has long tried to convince us it was working for working folks in this country has lost complete and utter connection to their very core constituency. the elitism, the listen to us, do as i say not as we do, this is what's resulted in the election of donald trump. the democrats had better figure this out, because unless they make this change to tim ryan, it's going to be very, very difficult more them to figure out how to go forward. >> oh, i don't think it's that simple. both parties are in serious trouble, the republicans as well as the democrats. their ideological core is at risk. trump is a response not just to republicans or democrats, he's a response to elites, and he pulled everyone with him because he happened to be on that republican line. both parties are in trouble, and they're both in denial.
8:36 am
>> but, hank, they're not in denial. at the end of the day, a lot of us in both parties have had problems, and the democrats continue to have problems with donald trump. he didn't just win with republicans, he didn't just win with middle-right republican, he won evangelicals, he won, you know, social conservatives, he won economic conservatives. he pulled in women, and the conspiracy of african-americans and hispanics that were supposed to deny him this election, that didn't happen. america wanted change, he's the change candidate, and he's also the disruption candidate, and i think most americans are pretty happy with that right now. jon: hank -- >> i think that exactly makes my point. this was a change election, he just happened to be on the line. he is not an ideological conservative by any measure, nor does he fit republican boundaries. he was able to cross party lines, racial lines and, frankly, the elites in washington on both sides of the aisle were absolutely castigated by that election. jon: talking about elites though, patrick, nancy pelosi is
8:37 am
one of the richest members of congress. she hails from san francisco. she's been leader of the democrats in congress for ten years and a member elected well before that. i just wonder, you know, a guy like tim ryan comes from ohio. is he more in touch with the needs or the desires of working class democrats these days? >> well, that's the case, i think, that congressman ryan will make, right? that blue wall that we talked about, wisconsin, ohio, michigan, he comes from a place that understands where i think many americans are right now. the anger, the frustration, the fear about a washington that hasn't responded to our needs. so that will be the theme of his election. the problem with nancy pelosi is she is the poster child for elitism and the lectures from the mainstream media and the lectures from washington liberals and from the stage of broadway where the cast of hamilton is telling the rest of us how we should think and feel. jon: yeah.
8:38 am
>> her problem is she is part of the tone deafness that won donald trump this election, i'm not sure she can change that. jon: but she enjoys a lot of power, hank. can tim ryan have a chance? >> i don't think her time has come and gone. i think when you have real change, you have parties that function. the problem here is that, again, both parties are not functioning as parties, they're functioning as cueing devices for particular candidates. it's not working, certainly, for democrats, it worked for republicans. in order to create a viable two-party system, you need change in the house of representatives, and it's time for her to go, very simple. jon: wow. it's going to be interesting. we'll certainly keep an eye on that race. hank and patrick, thank you both. >> thanks, jon. melissa: a fox business alert for you now on another record-breaking day for stocks with the dow hitting 19,000 for the first time ever today.
8:39 am
although it has retreated a little bit from there, it is still higher. let's go live to the big board right now where nicole petallides with the fox business network is live on the floor of the stock exchange. pardon me, nicole. what's trading like down there today? >> reporter: no doubt. so we have to, obviously, celebrate a psychological level of 19,000. in fact, even a few hats were made, the dow 19,000 hats. remember the 10,000 back in 1999, and we all remember the financial crisis in 2009 when the dow was at 6,500. but what brought us from 18,000 to 19,000 over the last couple of years or so, and you can see these five names are actually -- because of these five names, they actually attribute most of the move, unitedhealth, mcdonald's, home depot, boeing and goldman saks with unitedhealth over 30 to 0 points, mcdonald's over 180 points and the like. these five names actually got us here. then we got that last little boost with now president-elect
8:40 am
trump with a more investor and business-friendly administration expected, and we saw the dow, the s&p and the nasdaq all gaining roughly 3%, 3.5% for the dow, 3% for the s&p 500 and 3.7% for the nasdaq. and those sectors that did well, financials, industrials and energy. but big picture from 18,000 to now, there was nowhere really to invest money. people were nervous. they couldn't put it in bonds, they weren't getting any returns there. they couldn't put it abroad, they didn't see global growth, so they hesitantly put it in to equities here at home, and that really led that crawl from 18,000 -- it took almost two years. 17,000 to 18,000 was just like not even six months. so i will leave you with some optimism. i showed you the 19,000 hat, and there is one trader, and he made a dow 20,000 hat. the date inside is may of 2013, so he's been an eternal optimist. and for the 401(k)s and
8:41 am
iras, i hope it comes i true. melissa: boy, it is tough to predict, nicole. i remember everybody was predicting, lots of people, a collapse in the market and so much fear over a donald trump victory. we saw that for a few hours overnight, and then it hit new records before he even took office. interesting stuff. nicole petallides, thank you so much. >> reporter: thank, melissa, thanks. jon: well, it is a busy week at airports with so many heading home for the holiday. maybe that's why boeing is up. now the aviation industry is asking for its piece of the pie. in president-elect trump's campaign promises to boost american infrastructure, what do they want the most? plus, an exclusive florida community getting ready for a return visit by a familiar face, but this time donald trump is president-elect. >> he was always here, so it was kind of cool to have him there. and, you know, that place is beautiful. but now i just hope it doesn't ruin the experience of it, the place is secluded and quiet.
