tv   MSNBC Live With Tamron Hall  MSNBC  November 22, 2016 8:00am-9:01am PST

8:00 am
>> great to see you. thank you so much. hello right now on msnbc, developing this hour, charges against the tennessee school bus driver behind the wheel of this deadly crash. five elementary school children killed, has grieving parents waiting for authorities to get them more information and already breaking promises? donald trump outlines the policies for his first 100 days but there's no wall, no plan to deport immigrants and no plan to repeal obamacare. a source telling "morning joe" that trump will not pursue criminal charges against hillary clinton. trump reportedly saying now, quote, she's been through enough. and the new video shows what's inside this white nationalist meeting. what happened inside the meeting, roland martin spoke to the leader behind this group's meeting and talked to roland about what he learned live. i'm tamron hall live from our msnbc headquarters in new york. we begin with this horrific
8:01 am
school bus crash in tennessee. within the last hour, authorities in chattanooga removed the school bus from the scene of the accident claiming lives of five school children and the community grieving. more than 20 injured and the school bus driver johnthony walker and reckless endangerment and driving. parents turned to woodmoor elementary and how she's comforting her child. >> i can just tell him i love him and that it would be okay. you know, the child, he received the wing. >> the ntsb launched a team to the crash site and updating the public a few hours ago. >> we certainly send our
8:02 am
condolences. my daughter rides the school bus every day. i understand that. we'll do everything we can to try to prevent this from happening again. >> mariana atencio is live in chattanooga, tennessee. i heard a report that now they're looking for the black box on the bus which is something we hear, of course, with plane accidents, train crashes as well. >> reporter: that's right. a warrant has been issued for the black box. they will investigate it. to get you more as to the investigation here today, ntsb has been here and they're holding a press conference at 4:30 p.m. eastern today to update us on this crash. now, that at the center of this tragedy was removed from the crash site where i am now, moments ago, it was put on a truck and you could just see the extent of the devastation on this vehicle as they were taking
8:03 am
it from here, just from that image we saw from the chattanooga fire department, we saw that the truck was flipped on its side. we saw the bus was also almost cut in half by a tree and you could see, again, the devastation as they just drove that school bus out of here. and as you mentioned at the top, this community is just struck with grief over what happened. to give you a number, over 20 million school children drive the bus to school every day and in this community, this tragedy has reignited the debate over seat belts on school buses. only six states require seat belts on school buses and the mother we heard from at the beginning of your show just now telling us, you know, this needs to be discussed in this community and that she will push for seat belts in school buses. now, the bus driver, johnthony
8:04 am
walker charged with five counts of vehicular homicide and i'll read you the criminal complaint against him. the defendant was traveling at a high rate of speed. well above the posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour. mr. walker lost control of the bus and swerved off the roadway and began to overturn striking a telephone pole and a tree. and this morning, tamron, still six children at the icu in the hospital. those families praying for a miracle a day before thanksgiving. >> marion, thank you so much. my thoughts are with those families and to politics now. breaking this morning. colleagues at "morning joe," a source saying president-elect donald trump will not pursue investigations into hillary clinton for her use of a private e-mail server and the clinton foundation despite saying he would do so, even threatening to put her in jail if elected his
8:05 am
crowds often chanting lock her up. kellyanne seeming to confirm the news when asking if other republicans could agree. >> the president-elect, also the head of your party says he doesn't wish to pursue the charges and sends a strong message. if donald trump can help her heal and perhaps that's a good thing. >> the president-elect laying out his policy agenda in a video created and distributed by his transition team and not open to the press. >> i've asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs. >> the president-elect vows swift action in six areas. he said he'll withdraw from the transpacific trade deal and negotiate bilateral trade deals and shale energy and clean coal. mandate that for every new
8:06 am
regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. secure america's infrastructure from cyber and other attacks. investigate visa program abuses and new regulations on lobbying but the video message is also significant for what it does not mention, namely, his campaign promise to build a wall, deport immigrants and track muslims and repeal obamacare. nbc's katy tur joins me live now here in the studio. so the affordable health care, we heard early on from the president-elect there were things about it he said he wanted to keep. so we knew there have been some hedging for the campaign itself but what are you to make about these things from the video? >> i think it's interesting we're not talking about building a wall in the video, the very first address and interesting he's not talking about repealing and replacing obamacare. hedging is a good way to describe what he has done since elected on the subject of health care but he has been very firm
8:07 am
about wanting to keep a couple of things before this. one, to say a preexisting condition, you're still covered and two, to have children stay on their parents' health care plan up to the age of 26. i think what we are seeing so far is donald trump is now starting to learn what it takes to be the president and the road blocks that come along side of it. is he going to present a wall and maybe not a muslim ban or extreme vetting but refugees from certain terror countries that have yet to be defined? we're going to find out but this was a pretty safe path for him to take for his first announcement. it is notable that he is still not speaking to the press. he's still very clearly not comfortable talking to the press in a free way about how he is going to run his government. that signals to folks that maybe
8:08 am
they don't have a concrete plan about how things are going to go county the line. >> but this -- >> put him out there and commit to something that they're not going to be able to follow through. >> but this lack of a press conference started before he won. >> it did. it started 110, 118 days since, it's been 118 days announced so far. july 27th was the last news conference that we had. that was in the middle of the democratic national convention. it's when he called for russia to hack into hillary clinton's e-mails and welcomed it and wanted to see her missing e-mails. the change in tone between then and now is quite remarkable, especially on the clintons. it's quite remarkable some of the promises we were hearing on the campaign trail, we are not hearing so far but again, they have been very adamant and other campaigns have been adamant about this but obviously, to a lesser extent. the kaep rcampaign rhetoric is
8:09 am
what you'll see when someone becomes the leader of the free world. >> do those rules apply to politicians? you said he wasn't a politician but going to be pledged a special prosecutor and hillary clinton, again, there appears to be a change there. however, katy, some of the people he's bringing in on his team, there are those who supported a special prosecutor for hillary clinton and those who are walking around with paperwork that clearly seems to indicate they are still about deportation. >> kansas secretary of state walked into trump's golf course talking about how he wants to reinstate this program that basically tracks immigrants coming in from the majority of muslim nations and tracks men over a certain age and forces them at the time to come back in, give fingerprints, be photographed. it was something that many said,
8:10 am
were trying to say, would help stop terrorism but the aclu pointed out that absolutely zero terror arrests came out of the program so they're talking about it. remember, chris is on the transition team. he's not been appointed to a job like homeland security, and of course, one he's being considered for, we're told. we'll have to find out if that happens. on kellyanne conway, hillary clinton not being prosecuted. that is something they're walking back. lindsey graham already saying it looked like that's off the table. rudy giuliani talking about it briefly in trump tower. this was something that they campaigned on, putting her in jail and pointing an investigator to investigate the investigation and another example of this not being followed through on. >> pointing out the investigation. >> thank you. cal perry is at the trump tower where trump continues to hold these meetings. what can you tell us about scheduled meetings today? >> reporter: the latest is vice
8:11 am
president-elect mike pence arrived a short time ago. rudy giuliani perhaps being dni defense intelligence. we've heard secretary of state a pro of dodging reporter questions. did a short time ago. take a listen. >> i'm not going to discuss what i'm interested in or what the president-elect is thinking and mulling over. that's not fair. that's not the right way to do it. this has to be done privately. i don't mean just with regard to me but with everyone else. >> secretary of state? >> that i'll answer for the president-elect. >> reporter: he is going to go to "the new york times" and then quite a bit of chatter. that meeting will happen at 12:30. worth reminding people there was a meeting in january with donald
8:12 am
trump at the time, candidate donald trump and the "new york times" and was supposed to be off the record and then reports of an audio tape that became a campaign issue, ted cruz saying release the tape and hearing more clarification on the policy positions. i ing, something you and katy had. and sort of to deal be the yearly gridlock, the parade, and let's be honest, a great deal warmer in florida, tamron. >> we have police officers still to accommodate, but if he moves there, then the the security concerns there as well. there you have it. >> you got it. breaking news from the stock market. the dow crossed 19,000 major milestone for the first time ever over an hour ago. nbc anchor and correspondent, ali velshi joins us now with the latest. the big number has me tongue tied. >> it does have that effect. pulls back a ribt but it's not
8:13 am
the number that's as important. there are two reasons why i want to talk to you about this. the milestone gives me an opportunity to be on tv with you. and the second one, it's an opportunity to just tell you about market performance over the course of the year. the dow jones is 30 of the biggest most influential companies in america, but really, the thing that your 401(k) looks more like generally speaking is the s&p 500, a broader index and i want to give you a sense of how it's performing so far this year. if we can change over to that. we don't have that but, oh, all right. this is how we do it right now. the s&p 500 got to 2200 today, also a milestone. since 1871, if you've been investing your money in the s&p 500, you've had an average 5.7% return annually. now, if you put the dividends back and reinvest that, you could make a lot of money but 5.7% is the long-term average of the stock market.
8:14 am
we are now at about almost 8% this year alone on the s&p 500 and the dow. so that's the part that's relevant, you're doing very well and it's not the end of the year. still got december to go through. so the stock market is responding very positively to donald trump. the idea, tamron, he's going to loosen the regulations on companies and make it easier for companies to make money. >> thank you very much. coming up, the busiest travel week of the year and now the state department issued a travel warning for people, americans, traveling in europe. we'll have the details on that terror threat and more on alleged conflicts of interest. a new report claiming trump has pushed business interests overseas since winning the election. the latest reports coming up for you. attention: are you eligible for medicare?

8:17 am
8:18 am
welcome back. donald trump is suggesting the leader of the brexit movement should be the the uk's ambassador to the united states tweeting last night, many people would like to see nigel farage. he said i'm in a good position with the president-elect's support to help but tim downy squashed it. >> we have a first rate ambassador in washington doing a very good job of relating both with the present administration and the administration to be and there is no vacancy for that position. >> this comes amid a report in the "new york times."
8:19 am
and offshore wind farms that would be in the view of his golf course in scotland. joining me now, david for "mother jones" and msnbc political analyst. great to have you on. >> good to be with you. >> wind of issue for balack of better description and the report donald trump said with the argentinean president and to get the congratulations of argentinean's president and one report said he spoke with ivanka on the call as well. donald trump's daughter who plans to run the family business. what do you see here? >> i mean, there is such a mountain sized problem when it comes to conflicts of interest. some of us, a few of us writing about this before the election. bloomberg news and mother jones,
8:20 am
several stories pointed out he owed hundreds of millions of dollars to deutsche bank facing a $14 million fine in america for doing bad things and now he's going to be head of the government that's in charge of deciding whether to fight deutsche bank on the fight or not. he didn't show us taxes. he came up with no plan on how to keep his business interests separate from what he might do as president and assured, there will be a plan but at the same time, he's meeting with his indian investors over in india and talking about his wind farms for his property and he's talking about having jared kushner, a top advisor, who is his son-in-law. there is no way he can give the business to his kids which is a problem to begin with but still have one of theirs in on all of these meetings and say there's a wall between him and his
8:21 am
business empire and we don't know a lot of what his business interests are because his financial disclosure form that he filed during the campaign listed hundreds of companies people haven't had time to go through and figure out what they're doing. companies all around the world and we don't know if they're engaged in active partnerships or not. >> he would say, the trump supporters would say even with all of that and never releasing his taxes, he was elected president. donald trump in a tweet said prior to election, it was well known that i have interests in property all over the world. only the crooked media makes this a big deal saying basically our hair is on fire. these things were all known to the american public. so what happens now? what is the option available to the democrats? >> we don't know how much money he owes the bank of china to partnerships and the "new york times" estimating $600 million but never confirmed and said he
8:22 am
would give us a list of all his creditors and never did that. so it's not all known. if he says that, it's a lie. what to be done now? the republicans and democrats on the hill who raised issues about this. maybe they have to have hearings right away for the new president on conflicts of interest. >> do you see that happening? >> the big question, republicans just going to roll over and let him do anything he wants? i don't know. they certainly could. they control where the investigations go ahead but the other government types should be pushing hard on this. >> david corn, thank you. "the washington post" just published a story. trump foundation apparently admits to violating ban on self dealing no filing to irs shows. that's the awkward headline. here's what it means.
8:23 am
dav david. the substance of the report is what? >> well, one of those basic laws of charities is that if you're the president of a charity, you can't reach into the charitiy c buy things for yourself or business but he admitted that on more than, at least two occasions, trump did that. he took something out of his charity and used money to buy things himself and benefitted his business. it happened in 2015 and at least once before then. >> so now that he's the president elect, i understand that he could have already, the foundation could have been fined, the fine could have been paid and just learning these details now or they could be facing more problems. correct? >> right. there's two problems that this filing raises for trump as president-elect. one, he may still be under investigation by the irs, by the new york attorney general.
8:24 am
he may still be facing some penalties and fines depending how much of this self-dealing he did. the other one is a separate part of this filing which shows he got a big donation for a ukrainiukraine ian oligarch to influence president trump if they came forward with the foundation. >> the question i think a lot of people ask in seeing this, does this then turn into a potential hearing after the inauguration? how does this comebaimpact trum moving back and into the white house? >> maybe nothing right away, maybe something. but certainly this kind of conflict of interest, whether it's trump's business or trump's charity in this kind of disregard, apparent disregard for the law with trump's charity is not going to go away and something that trump will face from day one of his administration unless he takes
8:25 am
drastic action to put it behind. >> david, thank you very much. excellent new reporting. state department with a travel alert. manhunt, people during a routine traffic stop. the arrest and the reported motive. kanye west hospitalized and his wife at his side. the latest on the troubled star's new move. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months,

8:28 am
as an estimated 49 million people are set to travel this holiday season, the u.s. state department issues a travel warning for a heightened risk of terror attacks overseas. let's get right to the details with nbc's ayman mohyeldin. . we've talked a lot about security here in new york with
8:29 am
the macy's parade this holiday and now this broader global concern. >> yeah. this is a statement put out by the state department warning american citizens traveling to europe concerned about a potential attack and saying there's no specific concern. there's no specific attack but they say they have credible information to lead them to believe that isis and al qaeda or their affiliates may be planning attacks throughout the holiday season in various parts of europe and worried about the soft targets. gatherings on cripphristmas tre malls over the past couple of months in particular over the past year and attacks as well and they're worried about those types of vulnerabilities in terms of would-be attackers coming back from iraq and syria as a result of the ongoing war there and carrying on these types of attacks. the time of the holiday season, you get about 1.9 million americans visiting europe. about 2 million americans going from december, january, and
8:30 am
february. and that's exactly what this holiday warning is carrying. >> the tone is similar to the past or seem more urgent? >> it is similar to what we've seen in the past but is a sense of urgency given what's happened over the past couple of days and raids in france where they've arrested several people and germany, arrested three individuals they believe are connected to terrorist organization and the threat of an individual in new york with a possible link to isis so you have some concerns and they don't want to take chances so it's a different meaning with the travel warnings. >> thank you so much. in iraq, as fight to free the city of mosul from the control of isis continues, a new report said extremist group used chemical weapons at least 52 times in iraq and syria and 19 times in mosul. hospital on the outskirts of the city the only hospital in the area not under isis control and nbc's lucy kafanov joining us
8:31 am
from erbil to give us a clear picture. >> reporter: you mentioned the chemical attacks and the doctors we've spoken to haven't seen injuries along those lines but certainly prepared. they've been trained in chemical warfare treatments. there's tents set up but simply haven't been used yet but most of the casualties they've been seeing, soldiers wounded on the front lines and more and more civilians. part of the issues that simply no medical care for civilians in mosul. isis does operate several hospitals but it's difficult to get proper treatment there as you can imagine and even in the liberated areas and parts of mosul freed by iraqi forces and those civilians facing rocket attacks and that's most of the kinds of injuries we saw today. we saw a group of soldiers get pulled in an balance, three of them, one of them unfortunately did not make it out alive and family came in with young daughter and all of them
8:32 am
grateful for the medical care they got and know even know they're suffering under all these conditions, up to a million people remain trapped in the city with virtually no way to get the kind of care that they need. it is harrowing scenes that we've been seeing. the doctors under tremendous pressure and the medical supplies they need and doing their best. the only hospital that is not under isis control serving those civilians and soldiers who definitely need the medical help. >> lucy kafanov, thank you so much. other news we follow. powerful earthquake strikes the east coast of japan and tops our look at stories around the news nation. 7.4 magnitude quake was an aftershock from the earthquake in fukushima in 2011. at least a dozen injuries reported but officials say they found no significant damage. san antonio police captured the man accused of killing benjamin marconi after a massive
8:33 am
manhunt, otis mccain taken into custody without incident and told reporters he had lashed out because he was upset over a child custody battle. >> i've been through several custody battles and i was upset and i lashed out at somebody who didn't deserve it. >> anything to say to the family? >> i'm sorry. new this morning, the former university in cincinnati police officer accused in the fatal shooting is set to be retried. who is to those unarmed black man last year during a traffic stop. the case renewed tensions over police and use of force against black males. prosecutors are requesting a change of venue after jurors deadlocked earlier this month over charges murder and voluntary manslaughter. kanye west remains in a los angeles hospital this morning. multiple authorities familiar with the case tell nbc news, no criminal activity was involved and the rapper had been

he wears his army hat, he gets awalks aroundliments. with his army shirt looking all nice. and then people just say, "thank you for serving our country" and i'm like, that's my dad. male vo: no one deserves a warmer welcome home. that's why we're hiring 10,000 members of the military community by the end of 2017. i'm very proud of him. male vo: comcast. new video from an alt-right conference held in washington over the weekend is raising questions this morning. now the group was celebrating, they say, donald trump's victory when richard spencer, the president of the national policy institute, that's what they call themselves, said this. >> hail trump, hail our people, hail victory.
8:38 am
>> you can see the people in the audience responding with straight arm salutes. he said it's not a neonazi movement and meant to be ironic. and the spokesperson said the president-elect denounces racism of any kind and was elected because he will be a leader for every american. roland martin is the managing editor of news one and you just interviewed richard spencer. curiously, he refers to himself as not a white nationalist, how does he make the difference between the two? >> he is a white nationalist, he prefers alt-right but went on to explain that oh, i'm concerned about my people, folks who are of european descent and fighting for my people. that's white nationalism but did not say he's a white supremacist but danced around the issue of
8:39 am
being a white nationalist. >> you've interviewed the candidate. i'm curious why he decided to talk to you. >> this is the second time i've interviewed him and talked earlier in the campaign and had one of the white lives matter activists on and clans men as well and look, here's a guy who is trying to get maximum exposure and certainly one who is to the extreme, but what's important for us in media to understand there's a significant number of people who maintain the same perspective as we're seeing as sort of a loss in a white culture. at cnn in 1999, i said, john what we're about to face with the election of barack obama is the beginning of white minority resistance as america is more a majority/minority you'll see this and that's what we see. we're even normalizing it by calling alt-right. what does that mean? we've called it white
8:40 am
nationalist. >> we're both from texas. we covered the militia and what happened after the oklahoma city bombing and to your point, i think a lot of average people say, what's the alt-right? some media made word. it's what white nationalists use it as a marketing campaign. >> yes. it allows for them to be able, it's nicer, cleaner, more acceptable as opposed to white nationalist. i call it that because that's what it speaks to. >> let me play what he said about european identity. >> whenever anyone sticks up for european identity, whenever they say, i want to stick up for our people, they're always called a collection of names. nazi, kkk, southern confederate, et cetera. i think a lot of people want to throw it back in their enemy's faces. >> throw it back in their enemy's faces. and talked about people paying a lot of taeattention to your poi
8:41 am
to come on, knowing you're an exceptional journalist but going to set off heat but have the president-elect over the weekend tweeting feverishly about the "hamilton" situation and his team has released this statement, even e-mailing me, reminding me of this statement he's denounced racism but no flurry of tweets from the president-elect regarding this alt-right, everyone is watching and if he saw what happened at "hamilton" and watching to comment on the performance of alec baldwin, why not a twitter storm on this? what do you think? >> because he has been pushing these buttons, speaking to white nationalism, he is speaking to that and that's why. and so when you look, i even asked richard spencer about the whole, how hitler, no one said that and tried to tell me, only four or five people. literally said, well, they were exuberant. this guy was dismissing the nazi salute and this is all by
8:42 am
design. president-elect donald trump must condemn it and he must say it is shameful. but he is playing footsie here and that's the real problem. on the show, because i want people to understand that this is what we're about to face, not the next two or four years but the next 30 years. >> just quickly, you know that people will say, we're giving them attention and this room filled of 100 when the other groups hopefully that don't want this divisiveness are far more than them. what do you say to people? you are covering this for the ratings and so on as many. >> bottom line is you and i live, we are from texas and we've been across this country. the sentiments of richard spencer have been expressed and millions across this country, we want to deny it but it's there and like i told him point-blank, as a black man, latinos, we're not going anywhere. it's our country too. you better get used to sharing power and resources because we're not going anywhere. >> a part of it is to have minorities voluntarily leave.
8:43 am
>> i told him, he can leave anytime he wants to. >> roland martin, thank you very much. see much more on tv one and it's all over social media. thank you, roland. >> thanks a lot. election 2016 isn't quite over yet. one senate seat still in play. did you know that? this is in louisiana. i'll talk with the democratic candidate foster campbell about the potential to flip the seat. does he have a chance and is he getting support from his party what he was dreaming about ? for the holidays. before his mom earned 1% cash back everywhere, every time. [ dinosaur growls ] and his dad earned 2% back at grocery stores and wholesale clubs. yeah! even before they earned 3% back on gas. danny's parents used their bankamericard cash rewards credit card to give him the best day ever. that's the joy of rewarding connections. learn more at want to make thanksgiving extra here's a few suggestions.
