7:03 am
places. >> welcome to cbs this morning. gayle king is on assignment so bianna golodryga is with us. good to have you here. >> good to be here. >> we begin with what's really a stunning shift in the u.s. relationship with north korea after the two countries seemed to be drifting toward war. president trump has accepted an invitation to meet with north korea's kim jong-un. >> it would be the first meeting between a sitting u.s. president and a leader of north korea. which is still technically in a state of war with the united states and south korea. kim reportedly has offered to put his nuclear weapons program on the negotiating table. with the goal of making all of korea nuclear free. >> president trump tweeted last night, great progress being made, but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. meetings being planned. face the nation moderator margaret brennan is in washington with the moves that led to this startling
7:04 am
turnaround. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well, no world leader has been willing to meet with kim jong-un. now president trump says he plans to do so without any precondition. he made the call himself yesterday, based on the assurances of u.s. ally south korea, that kim jong-un promised to hold off on further nuclear or missile tests. south korean national security adviser chung eui-yong made the stunning announcement after dark outside the white house. north korean dictator kim jong-un wanted a face-to-face encounter with the american president. >> he expressed his eagerness to meet president trump as soon as possible. president trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet kim jong-un by may. to achieve permanent denuclearization. >> reporter: eui-yong had just delivered the message to the president which had been
7:05 am
conveyed to him from the north korean leader during a dinner in pyongyang. it was not without significant risk. both men are unpredictable and have little diplomatic experience. there's a void at the state department. the lead u.s. diplomat on north korea is quitting. there is no assistant secretary for asia. the president has not appointed an ambassador to south korea. >> they will be met with fire and fury. >> reporter: it is quite a turnaround from the heightened rhetoric of the last year. when the president regularly ridiculed kim. >> rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. >> reporter: kim called the president a dotard and mentally deranged. after the north and south reopened talks during the winter olympics, mr. trump signalled that meeting with kim was a possibility. >> we're in very close contact. we have come certainly a long way. >> reporter: early thursday, secretary of state rex tillerson expressed skepticism about talks. but this morning, he claimed
7:06 am
kim's dramatic change of posture led the president to agree to a meeting. >> this was the most forward-leaning report that we've had in terms of kim wrong jong-un's willingness, desire for talks. >> reporter: secretary tillerson said it would take, quote, some weeks to arrange this meeting. the president himself anxious to get the word out about a potential meeting with kim personally alerted reporters last night, this has never happened before, that a major announcement from the south koreans was coming, norah. >> it is unusual. what else can you tell us about how this unfolded behind the scenes? >> you never see a foreign official standing in front of the white house making an announcement about the president's schedule. it's unusual to say the least. this rollout was not planned. what we know is that white house officials thought they'd take time to mull over this decision. perhaps have lower level encounters before a presidential one. but president trump made this
7:07 am
call personally. he did speak to secretaries mattis and tillerson. they weighed in, as did the vice president, and you are hearing today from the secretary of state that he has not been convinced that this face-to-face meeting actually means north korea is ready too know gonegot away its weapons. at a minimum, it's safe to say this news here in washington has taken the focus away from what has been a rocky week for the president, especially given that republican outcry over the president's decision on tariffs. >> all right, margaret, thank you so much. we know this will be a big topic sunday on face the nation with you so we will be watching. south korea's foreign minister says his country's president moon jae-in is confident that the talks could lead to the denuclearization of north korea. moon declared the planned summit a historical milestone. he had previously called for diplomacy between the north and the u.s. holly williams is in seoul where there's also skepticism about the benefits of a meeting. holly, good morning.
7:08 am
>> reporter: good morning. well, the current administration here in south korea wants to engage with north korea. but many other people here say the north simply cannot be trusted and will never give up its nuclear weapons. on the face of it, north korean seems to have made some contentions. it's agreed to talk about deing news nuclearization and says it will freeze its missile and nuclear tests. if these talks go ahead, then the reward for north korea is huge. because if a sitting u.s. president meets with north korea's dictator kim jong-un, then that helps give him some credibility in the eyes of the world which is exactly what north korea craved. remember, also, that north korea has reneged on previous deal, all the why continuing to develop its nuclear weapon. the big question in this part of the world is just how far china will go to enforce sanctions and force north korea to denuclearize. china has been cracking down,
7:09 am
but for years it's been north korea's biggest trading partner and a lifeline for the regime. john. >> holly williams in seoul, thank you. nicholas burns was u.s. ambassador to nato and undersecretary of state for political affairs under president george w. bush. he's now a professor. let me ask you this question. on one hand, this is a major breakthrough. as holly mentioned, north korea's reneged before. former secretary gates, defense secretary, said i'm tired of buying the same horse twice when talking about north korea. so where do you see this recent move? >> you know, i think you have to say, in a way, john, it's positive that the president and kim jong-un are turning toward diplomacy. we are on a collision course with north korea. there was a possibility of a war with unpredictable and potentially catastrophic consequences. so if there's going to be a period of the next two or three or four months of diplomacy, i think that's positive. the problem is, this is a big
7:10 am
gamble. because as you've been seeing, the north koreans violated their agreement with president clinton, violated their agreement with president george w. bush. i was in both administrations and saw that happen. kim jong-un is in a very strong position. he has nuclear weapons. he's made progress on his ballistic missile and nuclear test. he's just about maybe on the verge of having the capacity to achieve a nuclear weapon that can hit the united states. so what are his motives here? he wants legitimacy. his father and grandfather did not meet with an american president going all the way back to the 1940s. he want has jit malegitimacy. i think he'll be open to negotiating some transparency about his nuclear weapons. i don't think he'll give them up. for the president, our president, this is going to be about as difficult as it gets and a major gamble. >> there's an interesting piece this morning in "the new york times" that says actually that gamble, which you talk about, that this could actually bring the two countries to the brink
7:11 am
of war if there is failure in these talks. play that scenario out. >> normally what we do here, norah, any prior american government, you start with lower level talks. the secretary of state would be involved. you really want to test whether the north koreans are serious. whether they're willing to dismantle their nuclear program before the president gets into a room with an historic, historic room, meeting, with the north korean leadership. if president trump and kim jong-un fail in their summit efforts, there's really nowhere else to go. that then could drive us back towards thinking about a military option to stop the north koreans from developing a nuclear weapon that could hit the united states. so that's where the gamble is. and there's no track record here. kim jong-un hasn't met with the chinese leadership. he's not met with the south korean leader. >> as you know, the president doesn't have a deep bench of advisers. the top negotiator is leaving. we don't have an ambassador to south korea. how concerned are you about that
7:12 am
void? and i'm being completely serious here. could we see dennis rodman even coming in and advising the president about this upcoming meeting? >> well, this is very serious. the state department has been dismantled. you have no american ambassador in seoul. no north korea expert. so you don't have a bench. you don't have the talent you'd normally have because president trump has forsaken the state department. >> all right, nicholas burns, thank you. this morning, china accused president trump of damaging the global trade system. the president officially announced a 25% tariff on imported steel and 10% tariff on imported aluminum yesterday. jericka duncan is at the white house with how the move does not go as far as it could have. >> mr. trump said those tariffs are flexible, they can go up or down and that certain countries could be exempted. the white house says these tariffs could roll out in just two weeks. >> we just want fairness.
7:13 am
>> reporter: president trump decided to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing he had no choice. >> they're a matter of necessity for our security. >> reporter: the president signed the order surrounded by steel and aluminum workers. >> our industries have been targeted for years and years. decades, in fact, by unfair foreign trade practices leading to the shuttered plants and mills. the laying off of millions of workers. >> reporter: the tariffs will hit u.s. allies like britain, germany, south korea, japan and australia. china, the focus of the president's ire on trade, will largely be spared, as it accounts for only a small percentage of u.s. steel imports. senate minority leader schumer said letting china off the hook was a mistake. >> it's so typical of this white house. even when they have a good idea, they mess it up.
7:14 am
because they don't think it through. >> reporter: top republicans lobbied the president to change course. >> tariffs have the potential to significantly undermine u.s. jobs. i'm just not a fan of broad based across the board tariffs. >> reporter: mario draghi called the president's decision dangerous. >> this is gary cohn's last meeting in the cabinet. >> reporter: the president's economic adviser gary cohn resigned after failing to convince mr. trump that tariffs were a bad idea. >> he may be a globalist but i still like him. >> reporter: the president also joked that cohn could return to the white house after he, quote, made another couple hundred million dollars in the private sector but according to the president, cohn would not come back as an economic adviser because president trump noted, he said he just wasn't as strong as we wanted him to be on
7:15 am
tariffs. john. >> thanks, jericka, don't let the door hit you in the back on the way out, extraordinary thing to say. stormy daniels, the adult film actress suing president trump for the light to talk about her alleged affair is talking to "60 minutes." her lawyer tweeted this photo of daniels with "60 minutes" contributor anderson cooper. you'll see that interview in the weeks ahead here on cbs. >> it will be quite an interview. florida governor rick scott will meet with families and victims of the deadly school shooting today before he decides to sign new gun legislation into law. new audio reveals what happened in the moments after the gunman opened fire inside marjory stoneman high school. >> my daughter just questioned me from school, she's at stoneman douglas and she says there's an active shooter. >> the broward county sheriff's office released nearly a dozen 911 calls. adriana diaz is in tallahassee with how the audio reveals a clearer picture of what happened during the attack.
7:16 am
adriana, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. of the 81 calls that went to broward county 911 operators, 10 were released, including one that appears to be from a student inside who was afraid of raising his voice. many of the other calls came from parents who were relaying information from their children inside. >> she says she's behind the desk right now but the shots were close. >> reporter: the calls from parents flooded local 911 operators during the shooting. >> it's okay. it's okay. >> reporter: in one, a panicked mother is overheard speaking directly to her daughter. >> i love you. i love you. it's going to be fine. can you hide somewhere? can you play dead? >> reporter: seconds later, police escorted the students from the classroom. >> 911, what is your emergency? >> reporter: in a call from inside the school, a cry for help had to be whispered. the caller too afraid to be heard by the shooter. >> marjory stoneman douglas high school is being shot up. >> is being shot up? are you at the school?
7:17 am
i can't hear you. are you at the school? >> reporter: also released, radio transmissions between law enforcement including the school resource officer, broward county sheriff deputy scot peterson who has been scrutinized for staying outside the building. >> possible shots fired. >> reporter: peterson's lawyer insisted he thought the gunfire was happening outside. but just two minutes into the recording, peterson's attention was already on the building where the shooting was unfolding. >> we're looking at the 1200 building. >> reporter: he radioed that the disturbance was happening inside. >> we also heard it over by inside the 1200 building. >> reporter: peterson who's denied any wrongdoing never entered the building to confront the shooter. and at one point, even warned first responders to stay away. >> do not approach the 1200 or 1300 building. stay at least 500 feet away at this point. >> reporter: peterson has since retired. now, yesterday, the broward county sheriff's office said it wants to release the

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's friday, march 9th, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, florida, senator marco rubio on the president's plan to meet with kim jong-un. and the effort to pass new gun laws in the wake of the stoneman douglas high school shooting. girl scouts in one colorado city write a new law to help other kids. we'll meet the young leaders protecting other children from secondhand smoke in cars. but first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> a stunning shift in the u.s. relationship with north korea after the two countries seemed to be drifting toward war. >> no world leader has been willing to meet with kim jong-un. president trump plans to do so without precondition.
8:01 am
>> south korea wants to engage with north korea, but many of the people here say that the north simply cannot be trusted. >> where do you see this recent move? >> we were on a collision course with north korea. there was a possible possibility of a war. if there's a period of diplomacy i think that's positive. >> mr. trump said the tariffs are flexible and they could go up and down and certain countries could be exempted. these tariffs could roll out in two weeks. of the 81 calls that went to broward county 1911 operators, ten were released yesterday including one from a student inside who was afraid of raising his voice. apple's fight headquarters in cupertino, california, is having some problems. the building is filled with so much clear glass that employees haven been walking into glass walls. i guess apple shouldn't have installed windows.

thank you, thank you. please, come on. i'm norah o'donnell with john dickerson and bianna golodryga. gayle is on assignment. >> president trump is ready to make history by meeting with north korean dictator kim jong-un. south korea's national security adviser announced the news outside the white house last night after meeting with kim earlier this week. >> the official says kim is committed to denuclearizing the korean peninsula and will refrain from further nuclear or missile tests. mr. trump tweeted last night, great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. >> the secretary of state says it will take weeks to set up a time and place. "face the nation" moderator margaret brennan is in washington. good morning. a few months ago the leaders were calling each other dotard and little rocket man. what has changed? >> awkward first conversation, john. we'll see how that meeting goes, if it happens at all, because
8:03 am
today the secretary of state said this decision was made by the president himself after the u.s. was surprised to hear how forward leaning kim jong-un was in his own desire to hold talks. he said as much this week to our u.s. ally south korea and that delegation that visited pyongyang and all of that recounting of that dinner convinced the president to meet with kim jong-un. it sharply contrasts with the hardline rhetoric that the president has been using, but it's not the first time he's offered to meet with the leader of a rogue state without precondition. remember the president asked to meet with iran's president back in september when he was visiting the u.n. in new york but iran rejected that request. you will see the president is willing to take a gamble. >> a carrot and stick. tough language but willing to meet. is that the strategy going forward? what's the white house doing to prepare for these possible talks? >> they're giving themselves
8:04 am
wiggle room here. they're not committing to the may date that was floated by south korea. the u.s. is also keeping sanctions in place. they're not offering a reward simply for talking, but in the mean time, the white house says it's just too early to say which lower-level u.s. officials might first meet with north korea to lay the groundwork for a presidential encounter. typically that would be the secretary of state and the state department. i'm told the national security council is leading the way. remember, the state department official is the most experienced meeting and negotiating with north korea, is quitting, and today, the secretary of state said it's going to take weeks to prepare for a presidential meeting. unclear if he will be doing the leg work. >> it's going to be fascinating to watch. thanks so much. sunday on "face the nation" margaret will ask republican senator cory gardner about north korea, the president's tariffs and more, that's "face the nation" sunday on cbs. florida senator marco rubio is a republican member of the
8:05 am
foreign relations and intelligence committee and with us from miami. senator, good morning. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> let's start firsts with north korea. president trump has agreed to meet with the world's most dangerous dictator without preconditions. what's your concern? >> well, i actually think there are preconditions and we're not going to get rid of sanctions and continue to move forward on the military exercises with south korea and if you're still willing to meet despite that, there will be a meeting. there are preconditions. and as far as what this means, the fundamental question is, whether or not kim jong-un will ever accept not having nuclear weapons. that's at the core here. because if he's not willing to give up nuclear weapons and the ability to strike the united states, then my sense is, that this is basically an effort to undermine international sanctions by saying look, i'm willing to meet but in those meetings he makes requests that we can never accept, like the u.s. leaving south korea and all of our troops leaving our alliance there. he knows those conditions will
8:06 am
never be met and he can turn to the international community and say look, i tried, i'm a reasonable person, but donald trump and the americans are unreasonable, in order to undermine international sanctions and also to undermine sort of international support for a preemptive military action. or -- >> is it clear to you that the north koreans have agreed to freeze their capabilities before trump sits face to face with them? >> i think that's kind of a misnomer because i think in their mind that's the other possibility they've already decided that they have a capability, they are now confident that they have gotten far enough with their nuclear program they can enter negotiations from a position of strength. i've always believed that once they believe they could strike the united states or threaten to strike us, they can then enter these negotiations on equal footing. there is another possibility. one that i think is less likely but may be part of this as well, that is that there's tremendous pressure among elites in north korea including diplomats around the world required to bring back
8:07 am
ill found gains including bribery, that there's a lot of measure and rumblings about discontent with the country and kim jong-un feels pressure to sew some level of progress with regard to that audience. this is a very mysterious regime and we don't have the amount of insight into them as we would some other country. >> what you're describing is a lot of traps and difficult things to be negotiated. so give us -- >> tough stuff. >> give us your assessment of the trump administration so far. for a lot of people this looks like a tremendous breakthrough for the trump administration, the president, his strategy, so assess what got us here and whether you think the administration has the capability to run all those traps you outlined. >> there's one or two things that have gotten us here. number one, kim jong-un is supremely confident he has leverage over the united states because he believes we believe that he can strike us or, b, he's under pressure that threatens his regime and feels like he needs to show the elites in his country he is in a strong position and that he is willing to do things and give people
8:08 am
hope that things are going to get better. i have no disagreement with our approach. i don't think we would be at this point today had it not been with sticking with sanctions and nothing is going to change just because there's going to be a meeting. the pressure has brought us to this point, one way or another, because of internal pressure in north korea among elites or whether it's because kim jong-un now feels he has no choice but to engage, but he's comfortable in engaging because he has nuclear weapons that he thinks he can threatens the u.s. with. >> senator, let me turn to domestic issues, one related to your state, that is gun legislation. i know you met with a survivor student from stoneman douglas yesterday and were reminded of your town hall a month ago with the students where you made news saying you would be open to raising the age of someone who can buy a rifle from 18 to 21. you also said that you would consider limiting magazine size and capacity. have you made up your mind on where you stand on those issues?
8:09 am
>> well, to be clear, i said on said automatic rifles both action, hunting rifle and shotguns and things of that nature is not what we're talking about. the state of florida has done that. i am willing to support something that does that. the magazine capacity, it's an issue for me in terms of considering it, a lot of complexity about what the right size should be and so forth. here's been my approach. the community is demanding action and want something done. every time one of these things happens nothing passes because we put all our eggs in a basket that doesn't have the votes to pass. takes 60 votes in the senate, majority in the house and a president that will sign it. what i have focused on phase one is things that we can get passed that have broad bipartisan support, stop school violence by orrin hatch, one by pat toomey. senator nelson and i will be offering a program for states to pass what florida passed a gun violence restraining order. i believe these things we can get done. there's consensus around them.
8:10 am
that's step one. the other more contentious issues would be step two. we don't get to step two unless we show momentum and progress with step one. that's what i've been focused on is phase one of the effort. >> to be clear the bill that the florida legislature passed that would raise the age from 18 to 21. >> that's correct. >> you support that? >> well, i would prefer it not include shotguns and rifles but let me be clear about one thing for people concerned about this, it's not possession. you can be 19 and, you know, use your father's rifle to go hunting. you can't be the owner, can't buy it yourself. that's an important distinction for those concerned about that. >> we're running out of time. do you expect the governor to sign that bill that florida legislature pass sds. >> i believe he will sign it today. >> thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> the investigation of a popular hair stylist death uncovered a dramatic twist. >> i'm michele miller.
