the weekend. people not sure what is going on. a week ago they woke up to the news saying they were no longer la allowed to travel to the united states if they were from one. seven muslim majority countries. they woke up today that they can and it is temporary. so much uncertainty and confusion over the weekend here. we did not see any mass rush to get to the airports to get on planes to get to the united states. some people tried to take advantage of the decision to get into the u.s., it seems many others are still waiting to see what happens. they understand this is an ongoing legal battle. they want to see what happens next. it is a risky attempt to risk visas or financial cost of getting to the u.s. overall, talking to people of cautious optimism that the american justice system will
overturn a decision that many felt was unjust and they describe collective punishment. >> jomana karadsheh in istanbul, thank you. some largest companies in silicon valley are formalizing the concerns of the travel ban. they partnered with hother term and showed it violates immigration laws and constitution. we have samuel burke live in london with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. when i sat down, i thought it would take me forever. the fast majority of this are the sheer amount of companies listed in the document. basically not providing money or lawyers, but filing documents. you see the names there to the washington state lawsuit against the executive order. it has been difficult to know if this is personal for companies or business. i still think it is about 50/50.
at the end of the day, what stands out is they feel this executive order is just bad for business. let me read you one portion of the court document. these companies saying, the order represents a departure from the principles of fairness that have governed the immigration system of the u.s. for 50 years inflicting significant harm on american businesses, innovation and growth. what they go on to say, christine, this makes it harder to attract and hire talent from overseas. as someone who with spent time in silicon valley, all you see is foreign talent. you saw airbnb with a political ad. i think anybody watching this knows and if you read the tweets of the ceo of the company, this was definitely targeted at the
immigration ban. >> i think airbnb had been trying to offer people a place to say who were stuck. let me ask you about ceos. are they optimistic about the pro-growth policies? they want the president to pivot back to tax reform and away from the immigration stuff. >> reporter: absolutely, christine. whether it is the ceo of apple, or other companies, they are coming out hard against the order. they are still optimistic we may bring cash from europe back to the u.s. where you are and we may have corporate taxes going down. they are optimistic of the polipol poli policies. >> samuel burke. thank you. the president attacking a
i checked, everything's there... wait a minute... hey... hold on, i can explain. you better have a good answer... switch to geico and you could save a ton of money on your car insurance. why didn't you say so in the first place? i thought you's was wearing a wire. haha, what? why would i wear a wire? geico. because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance is always a great answer.

i between the u.s. and putin. >> do you respect putin? >> i respect a lot of people. he is a leader of his country. i say it is better to get along with russia than not. if russia helps us in the fight against isis, which is a major fight and islamic terrorism all over the world, that's a good thing. will i get along with him? i have no idea. >> putin's a killer. >> we have a lot of killers. you think our country's so innocent? >> i don't know of any government leaders who are killers. >> take a look at what we have done. >> reporter: nancy pelosi is now calling for a formal investigation in the trump and putin relationship. monday, president trump makes his first public address to u.s. troops since the inauguration. when he goes to macdill air

process. complicated. obamacare is a days isaster. obamacare doesn't work. we are putting if a wonderful plan. it takes a while to get. we are putting it in fairly soon. i think, yes, i would like to say by the end of the year. at least the rudiments. we should have something within the year. >> now when asked if americans can expect a tax cut this year as promised. the president said, quote, i think so. president trump thinks tax cuts are possible. most insiders think it will take longer. the senate finance committee is deliberative and partisan. look what happened with obamacare. you want both sides of the aisle in. they have yet to offer the reform proposal. it hasn't weighed in on the president's various tax proposals. the committee's chair orrin hatch has questions about details.
translation. pause. we'll get to tax reform eventually. it whiill take time. it would change how the u.s. government taxes imports and exports. miguel, the business community is getting out a campaign against it. retailers. >> on the tax cut, the last time figure was tried was 1986. it took four years to get it done. president trump still pushing his false claim that millions of illegal votes cast in the november election despite the complete lack of evidence. mr. trump promised to sign executive order to start a federal probe. it promised he has not delivered on. now he seems to move ahead with a different kind of investigation. >> it doesn't have to do with the vote. that is the end result. it is with the registration. when you look at registration and you see dead people that have voted. when you see people registered

the senate turns attention to jeff sessions and treasury pick steve mnuchin. democrats are upset about the misleading testimony. they are slow walking procedures. still a bit of buzz over the melissa mccarthy portrayal over sean spicer on "saturday night live." she stole the show literally. here is a clip if you missed it. >> now i would like to begin today by apologizing on behalf of you to me. for how you have treated me these last two weeks. and that apology is not accepted. >> are you okay? >> take it. take it. you take it. >> what are you doing? what are you doing? >> this is soapy water.

cnn's andy scholes live in houston with the historic finish. you're still up. amazing. >> good morning. this is going down as the greatest super bowl of all time. no team had ever come back from a ten-point deficit. patriots down 25 in the third quarter and found a way to make it happen. no question tom brady is the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. this is a play we are always going to remember in the fourth. julian edelman finding a way to keep this ball off the ground. it kept the patriots drive moving. they scored a touchdown. they did need two points in the fourth to tie. brady coming through with danny amendola. that sent us to the overtime. patriots win the coin flip. and james white with a two-yard touchdown run. 24-28.
tom brady the super bowl mvp for the fourth time. cementing him as the greatest quarterback to play the game. >> thank you to all our fans. everyone back in boston, new england, we love you. you have been with us all year. we're bringing this sucker home. >> reporter: brady was really emotional after getting that trophy from terry bradshaw. emotional for a couple reasons. we found out his mother had been dealing with health issues. she hadn't been to a game all season long. you see her with the brady's ladies shirts. he dedicated this win to his mom. another reason he was emotional because of the deflategate saga. it had been the rallying cry. he shared a handshake with roger
goodell. it was quick. you see goodell congratulating him. goodell booed by patriots nation. what a night for patriots nation and tom brady. brady did have a hiccup after the game. his jersey was stolen from his locker. he no longer has the jersey he wore to win his fifth super bowl. it is a mystery where that jersey is. >> he'll find it on e-bay. >> it's on john berman's back right now. >> berman stole it. let's talk about the halftime show. lady gaga. how did she do? >> i thought it was awesome. by all indications everyone on social media loved it. she looked like a cirque du soleil for a bit. she played piano. the sadancing and light hoshow incredible. this is one of the best halftime
unacceptable. as for the response from president trump, the kremlin preferred not to comment. yes, the trump administration is leaving the door open for better relations and so is the kremlin. there are divisions that are starting to appear. on that briefing with the kremlin, they talked about iran. kremlin saying it fundamentally disagrees with the classification of iran as the number one terrorist state. iran is a key ally of russia. particularly in syria. a fellow backer of the bashar al assad regime. how can he work with russia and at the same time not backing iran in the conflict? this as for the kremlin, there are profound divisions on certain global issues with russia and the u.s. that should not stop the two sides working together on beneficial issues.
>> a fascinating weekend of developments. when you look at it from moscow, different from what we hear in the united states. the sunday shows full of republicans denouncing the equivalency with russia and the united states. thank you, clare. vice president mike pence talking about the violence in eastern ukraine. he says the trump administration is troubled and watching how russia responds to make a determination of the u.s. sanctions, his words, come one day after president trump spoke to the ukraine president by phone. we have cnn's phil black live in ukraine. phil, what are the ukrainians feeling about the uncertain administration and how they are backing ukraine with the president saying one thing, vice president saying another and the whole back and forth with vladimir putin.
>> reporter: miguel, they are very concerned indeed. they have considerable reason given recent events. i'm here on the out skirts of the town of avdiivka. it has born the brunt of intense fighting that kicked off not long after president trump and president putin held their first telephone call. the human cost here has been great. two dozen people killed. tens of thousands people enduring the incredibly cold and bitter freezing temperatures with no heat or power or running water. there has been a great debate with russia and ukraine about who is responsible for the latest uptick in fighting. fighting often takes place here and picks up all the time. it is deadly. it is intense. we have seen it ourselves. what is different in the last week is simply the scale of the fighting. it has been an artillery duel.
bombardments have not seen at this level for a long time. it doesn't matter who started it. both sides are looking to assess one key outcome. that is just how the new u.s. administration responds to this. as you mention, president trump spoke to ukrainian counterpart over the weekend. president poroshenko thanked the trump administration. he wants to work with all parties to solve this. some in the u.s. administration have spoken strongly about russia, the president still has not. not in the context of ukraine. so many ukrainians will continue to feel very nervous up until
the point they see a clear gesture or language from the president that he is with them as they try to repel russian aggression and take back the territory they have lost. miguel. >> phil black in ukraine for what may be the very first big issue for the young presidency. thank you very much. let's get an early start on your money. asian markets closed higher. europe markets in the early hours of trading, higher. u.s. futures not moving. the job market humming adding 227,000 jobs. unemployment rate ticked up to 4.8%. more americans are looking for work. president trump appears to be accepting these numbers. >> 227,000 jobs. great spirit in the country right now. we're very happy about that. >> very happy about that. remember, president trump ridiculed the numbers for months. falsely claiming the jobless rate is as high as 42%.
>> i read every time it comes out. i hear, 5.3% unemployment. that is the biggest joke there is. >> don't believe the phony numbers when you hear 4.9% and 5% unemployment. the numbers probably 28% or 29% or high as 35%. >> when job numbers were good under president obama, trump disregarded them. he needs them to measure his progress. he promised to create 25 million jobs in eight years. that would be more than any president in history. the tone of the super bowl ads gives a snapshot of the country. most were in political. budweiser with the founder adolf busch. the hash tag trending on
twitter. then it was used by others to defend budweiser and mock the people. the hash tag redirected by the end of the game. coca-cola featured the ad of people singing "america t beautiful." and audi with a father trying to explain the pay inequity to his daughter. issues in there where diversity was the theme. >> they seemed somber and diverse. not the typical super bowl ads. not the high energy stuff. guess what? "early start" continues right now. >> president trump blasting the judge suspending his travel ban accusing of putting the country if per in peril. and president trump defending vladimir putin again when asked about the russian
lead leader's reputation as a killer. response is the u.s. is not innocent. and tom brady with the comeback to win super bowl vl. we go live to houston where patriots fans are celebrating and falcons fans are trying to figure out what happened. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez. it is monday, february 6th. i almost said friday. 5:00 a.m. here on the east. it is super super bowl. tom brady the first quarterback to win five championships. he did it in epic fashion bringing the patriots back from the 25--point deficit late in the third quarter for a stunning 34-28 victory over the falcons. we will have more on the stunning comeback for you in a moment. attorneys for washington state and minnesota filed legal papers with the ninth circuit court of appeals beating the
