4:00 am
>> bad hombres, bad boys, what you going to do. >> in the presidential library, a putting green, black book with phone number of porn stars. in his tweet he said bring back darryl hammond but mel an i don't brought in -- asked, stop calling me for "snl" tickets. >> don't expect these two to work this out. no kissing and making up. not even a remote chance of this. >> i deeply apol lly apologize. >> are you trying to say apologize. >> no, i would never do that. >> jeanne moos, cnn, new york. howling winds, soaking rain slamming east coast. >> there are homes under several
4:01 am
feet of water. >> tonight is not the night to check out the storm. >> dozens of quincy residents rescued from their homes. >> kind of scary. >> we're lucky, just things will get lost. >> john kelly revives the porter scandal and says he won't resign over it. >> this seems to be a feeding frenzy inside the west wing. everybody is shooting at everybody. >> i've served under six administrations. i've never seen such chaos. >> if they want to call it chaos, fine. we call it success. >> the president is also facing growing criticism over sudden announcement of tariffs on steel and aluminum come into the u.s. >> on an average car, the actual impact will be a fraction of 1%. >> you're going to see a lot of good things happen. >> so glad to have your company as always. i'm christi paul. >> i'm martin savidge in for victor blackwell. top story violent winds ripping
4:02 am
through the northeast after a bomb cyclone tore through the area causing widespread damage. as you can see, trees toppled right over destroying homes. >> listen to that wind. at least five people are now reported dead as a result of this storm and the worst isn't over yet. the torrential rains causing widespread flooding. another major concern violent winds tearing down power lines. more than a million people without power from virginia to new england. >> massachusetts seeing the worst of it with more than 400,000 without power. there are states of emergencies in virginia and maryland as well this morning. >> let's get right over to cnn's brian young. live in quincy, massachusetts. what are you seeing? are they prepared for this third tidal wave, i should say of
4:03 am
what's coming next, the last part of the cyclone expected this morning. >> we certainly are waiting for it. let me tell you this, we are still getting hit by the heavy winds in this area. you look at this car here. the last hour when we were here, the water was a lot higher. now you can see the water has started to recede. people starting to come out and check out and survey the damage from overnight. more than 100 people just from this area alone were evacuated. this was a storm with powerful winds. it was a long 24 hours. coastal communities in massachusetts pounded by monster waves. high tides sent water rolling down streets and into homes. in quincy, dozens of residents had to be rescued by trucks and scooped up by front loaders. christine was one of those getting a ride out of danger. >> it's kind of scary because we were the ones standing up on it
4:04 am
and having to hold on. we're lucky. it's just things that will get lost. >> reporter: storm conditions are expected to improve on saturday but the wind is still a factor, so is coastal flooding. near portland, maine, storm surge left the home teetering on the edge of the atlantic ocean. >> the plan is to lift it and move it back a little bit, i believe. but a lot of things have to happen before that happens. we're just trying to keep it from going anywhere. >> you feel bad for the people but that comes with having a house on the water. ocean wins, you lose. >> another issue is power outages. in watertown, massachusetts, high winds made power lines fall like dominos. >> we had traffic lights all over town affected by this grid. the first trouble, they isolated the area, cut the circuit off. wires over cars and it was a dangerous situation. >> one woman in brockton, massachusetts, said her son was lucky to be alive. he was sitting in the back of
4:05 am
the car when a tree came down. >> the house shook. we heard a noise. we didn't know what it was. we ran out. my son was still in the car with the tree on top of it. when we look at some of the roof lines you see shingles and tiles blown off, obvious lib shaken from the foundation. you can see debris on the streets which makes it almost impassable at times. add that to the fact high tide could be coming back again. luckily we're not dealing with heavy rains but there will be a lot of surveying of damage over the next 24 hours. >> just a few more hours expect that tide to come through. in quincy, we appreciate it, thank you. the storm is so severe more than 3,000 flights have been canceled and that's so far. am track forced to cancel its service but should resume later this morning. >> we do have images we want to
4:06 am
share with you of what the storm has done. look at this. don't expect it to be quite that bad when it hits again but it is going to hit again. the storm surge there colliding with high tide causing more of a mess throughout this morning you expect. look at the flooding in boston. parts of that city are just, as you see, under water. then we've got a kayaker paddling down waterlogged boston street. somebody thinks, you know what, i'm going to make the best of it, apparently. >> they do. >> the national guard had to rescue 50 people from their homes in nearby quincy. look at that woman just hanging on. it wasn't just high winds and rain, though, there was heavy snow as well and sleet that fell across major cities such as new york and philadelphia. when it's that heavy wet stuff that makes it tough to get through. >> meteorologist allison chinchar live at the "weather
4:07 am
center." allison, let's start by explaining to people what a bomb slik lone is. >> you hear that term a lot let's break it down in layman's terms. when the atmospheric pressure drops 24 millibar in 24 hours or less. in this case it dropped 30 millibar in less than 24 hours. all this really means is this let's us know the storm is undergoing rapid intensification. when it does that, this is when you get the strongest northeasters to hit these locations. we had that. one of the other things people often associate with northeasters is snow. it's not a requirement but heavy snow is often associated with it. look at some of these numbers. richmondville, new york, 37.5" of snow. jefferson, 34.5" highest out of upstate, vermont and pennsylvania were also hit hard with snow as well. let's talk about where the storm is now. this is where it was located yesterday over portions of new york and pennsylvania.
4:08 am
now it has moved fully off the coast. but with that said, it's still expected to have pretty significant impacts for the northeast through tomorrow. the biggest one is going to be those strong winds. we talk about high wind warnings and advisories outstretching from massachusetts all the back to maryland. again, those wind gusts expected to be 50, even 60 miles per hour. right now in nantucket it's gusting to 55 miles per hour. this is a concern for a lot of power outages. as we talk, they may get worse before they get better since those winds really aren't supposed to come down until late tomorrow. we also still have the coastal flood threat. high tide for boston is not expected to hit until noon today. you just saw ryan young's live shot there. he's at low tide. that's why you can see the ground he's standing on. that image is going to change significantly over the next five hours as that tide comes back in. the good news is we don't expect this next tide to be a record. the record, christi and martin,
4:09 am
16.6, we expect it to be around the 14 foot range. that said, you're only talking a foot difference. there's still going to be coastal flooding with the most recent high tide that will come in. >> allison, thank you so much. appreciate it. >> want to update you on another story. the suspect in a shooting at central michigan university which left two people dead, that suspect now in custody. police arrested james eric davis jr. this morning when he was spotted on the campus train. the victims in the shooting james davis jr. and diva davis are the suspect's parents. they arrived at the school friday to pick up their son for spring break. police are calling this a domestic situation. this marks the twelfth school shooting this year. another week of chaos seems to be rocking the white house. a personal ally said this time something is wrong. they are worried about his behavior as members of his family and administration are facing scrutiny.
4:10 am
>> president trump says trade wars are good and easy to win. are they good for everyone or will there be winners and losers. >> also jared kushner's business deals under some new questions this morning. some asking if he's been using his father-in-law's presidential power to his financial advantage. we'll take a look. last years' ad campaign was a success for badda book. badda boom. this year, we're taking it up a notch. so in this commercial we see two travelers at a comfort inn with a glow around them, so people watching will be like, "wow, maybe i'll glow too if i book direct
4:11 am
at". who glows? just say, badda book. badda boom. nobody glows. he gets it. always the lowest price, guaranteed. book now at
4:12 am
want us to do about what woulthis president?fathers i'm tom steyer, and when those patriots wrote the constitution here in philadelphia, they had just repelled an invading foreign power. so they created the commander in chief to protect us from enemy attack. the justice department just indicted 13 russians for sabotaging our elections. an electronic attack on america that the chief investigator called "warfare". so what did this president do? nothing. and is he doing anything to prevent a future attack? the head of the fbi says no. this president has failed his most important responsibility- protecting our country. the first question is: why?
4:13 am
what is in his and his family's business dealings with russia that he is so determined to hide, that he'd betray our country? and the second question is: why is he still president? join us today. we have to do something. two,that was awful. why are you so good at this? had a coach in high school. really helped me up my game. i had a coach. math. ooh. so, why don't traders have coaches?
4:14 am
who says they don't? coach mcadoo! you know, at td ameritrade, we offer free access to coaches and a full education curriculum -- just to help you improve your skills. boom! that's lesson one. education to take your trading to the next level. only with td ameritrade. >> unraveling and unglued how u.s. officials and close friends of the officials are describing him as administration faces chaos and criticism at home and overseas. >> some of that criticism is focused on chief of staff john kelly who tried to defend how he handled domestic abuse scandal. he ended up changing his story again which has a lot of people going what's going on. boris, this chaos is not new in this administration. we've seen it before. what is it that makes people say, this time it seems to be a
4:15 am
bit different? >> hey, martin and christi. sources close to the president telling cnn this is different. they are worried about the president, that he may be losing control of his staff. in part, there were number of reports that he was lashing out at staffers, including people close to him like hope hicks, the communications director who announced she was leaving the white house this week after being berated by the president shortly after her testimony before congress. you also have rumors about other officials in the administration that are apparently planning to exit, including h.r. mcmaster and gary cohn. beyond that you have investigations looming over the president's son-in-law and now his daughter. there's certainly a lot of controversy surrounding white house. yesterday you had chief of staff john kelly trying to clarify rob porter scandal, seemingly piling onto that kelly made the case he secured a resignation from rob porter the same day he learned
4:16 am
about allegations of domestic abuse against staff secretary. that contradicts the time line of what we know. it wasn't until a full day later that the white house put out a statement defending rob porter. it was after that statement that he eventually did resign. and it also contradicts what we've heard from sources hotel us the fbi provided chief of staff and white house counsel with documentation detailing some of the accusations against rob porter. despite all of that chief of staff told reporters, quote, i have nothing to even consider resigning over. one final note, martin and christi, about the president's schedule, he's set to attend victory reception here at mar-a-lago. doesn't seem like the president has a whole lot to laugh about
4:17 am
these days. >> interesting. thanks so much. i want to get back to john kelly. there's a new report from the "new york times" that i think caught a lot of people's attention. this report claiming president trump asked general kelly for help to push his daughter ivanka and son-in-law jared kushner out of the white house. >> joining us deputy managing editor and cnn political commentator and former adviser to the trump campaign jack kingston. welcome to you both this morning. >> good morning. >> jack, let me start with you. what do you make of this reporting that the president wants jared and ivanka pushed out, they are causing him too many problems. why wouldn't a dad turn to his daughter and say, hey. >> i've been around the president, with his son-in-law and daughter. i could not imagine him going to any third party. they are very close, have a great working relationship. i can't imagine. i think this is a bizarre story. i don't think there's any truth to it whatsoever. >> you don't think he wants them
4:18 am
out. >> no, i don't. he may say, listen, we may need to change something here, something there but i don't think he wants them out. i can say this, having served in elected office, it's very good and healthy thing to have people you trust close to you, particularly family members if they fit in, because it gives you the moral security that you sometimes want, the moral. >> so kelly, former director said yesterday style he believes is part of the problem here. he says this incoming administration didn't have a great deal of regard for the norms. there are norms out there not because they are arbitrary, there are norms out there because lessons through history we understand if you don't do it that way you're increasing the odds things are going to end up unhappy. is nepotism part of that? how much of that with kushner is really the problem here? >> you know, donald trump won election as an anti-establishment outsider candidate, and he thinks he can
4:19 am
govern that way, too. i think him and the people around him are discovering that doesn't always work. remember when john kelly was brought in to stamp out the chaos in the white house? now he himself has become part of it. i wonder if trump hires people that are like him and have the same sort of lackadaisical attitude for the way things are done as he does or do people change after working for donald trump and end up becoming apo o apologizing for him. >> jack, kelly brings up a point there with john kelly and what he was trying to talk about the latter part of the week. it seems he has even testified against himself in his own words when it doss rob porter and how things were handled he had that famous quote, we didn't cover ourselves in glory. what do you make of this rather bizarre thing.
4:20 am
>> i'm not sure why he brought it back up. i think his statement previously was sufficient that, hey, we screwed up. it's not going to happen again. we made changes to address the situation. that's all we need to know. i don't think anybody would say john kelly needs to go because of rob porter. i think the fact he came clean and said, screwed it up, won't happen again, that was sufficient. >> kelly jane, i want to ask about hope hicks. i was listening to "new york times" haberman talking about how she was like family to this president. she was somebody he trusted. she was a filter for him. she took a lot of the brunt from him but was able to direct him to some degree. with her leaving, is there any sense of who can fill that void in the white house? >> great question. does go to show jared and ivanka rumors may just be rumors. if trump is willing to let go or to be fine with seeing someone
4:21 am
who is like family going, then what about actual family? we constantly heard this, we need people in the white house like john kelly, like general mattis, like rex tillerson to keep trump strong, tame that chaos. nobody has been able to do that. even hope hicks, who was close to the president and seems to have been a consummate pr professional as young as she was couldn't do it. why would we think anyone else could do it? given the fact john kelly has been on the job now two-thirds, three-quarters of a year and the chaos is nowhere near being lifted, i think nobody can do it. >> jack, do you really see this chaos the same way opponents of the president may look at it? do you see this kind of, i don't know, disshelfment as far as white house. >> i don't see it at all. you look back at george washington's administration, it was absolutely chaotic. i think every president since then has had some degree of it. what i do know is the heritage
4:22 am
foundation recently said that trump has implemented 61% of his objectives of his campaign promises. the economy is pittsburghurring. he's addressing issues of trade, immigration, all but appealed obamacare, even opened up after 30 or 40 year debate the alaskan wildlife reserve for oil drilling. that was something not any president could do. in my opinion, you get the accomplishments done, that's what really counts. that's what the american people want. >> we have yet to see what trade will do, if he's going to implement what he's been saying last 24 or 48 hours. always a pleasure to have you both. thank you. >> thanks a lot. >> thank you. speaking of trade, europe is threatening to respond to president trump's threat by taxing u.s. products. next, should shoppers in the u.s. be worried about price increases here. asters sumatra reserve told in the time it takes to brew your cup. let's go to sumatra.

4:26 am
4:27 am
. so glad to have you with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm martin savidge. the president has. our steel industry in bad shape. if you don't have steel you don't have a country. >> but if the steel industry wins, then the real question is who loses. here is cnn correspondent tom foreman. >> reporter: take a look at the numbers. the united states imports about a third of all steel it uses, 90% of all the aluminum is uses. these proposed tariffs would push up the cost by 25 and 10% respectively. that's money that would be paid by the foreign countries who wanted to get their product on
4:28 am
u.s. soil. if it was more expensivem it could help u.s. steel and aluminum making them more competitive especially since they have complained for years about unfair practices overseas anyway. what about all the companies that rely on that raw material to make cars and airplanes and equipment and aluminum cans and appliances? what about those companies? now they would face a different supply chain where there maybe shortages, higher prices and that could affect a lot of people in other fields. one estimate has it that more than 80 times as many people work making stuff out of that raw material than in actually producing raw material. those people would now potentially face uncertain wages, uncertain hours, maybe more off shoring, not to mention what would happen with consumers out there. one estimate said some products in some places could go up by 15%. i don't know if we know that but there's uncertainty in the consumer market about what the impact would be.
4:29 am
here is another question, though. does this get at trade practices of other countries. does it strike a blow for that. it depends who you're talking about and how this would be applied. we don't have the details yet. this is where the united states gets foreign steel from. canada the biggest supplier, brazil, south korea, russia, and so forth. you know who is not in the top ten, though? china. the country the united states, the president has said so many years is not being a fair trading partner out there. this the one president trump said he wants to get at. would this get at them? it might. but the numbers suggest only after it had an impact on long-standing trade allies and possibly unleashed a trade war with very uncertain outcomes. >> all right, tom. thank you very much for that. the european union may strike back if the president follows through on the tariff plan. they could retaliate by putting their own tariffs ongoing major u.s. brands like, levi jeans,
4:30 am
harley davidson motorcycle and bourbon whistwhiskey. what may be more important is they could tax soybeans, squeeze companies such as apple, intel. >> senior economist with us, first and foremost, do you see a winner or loser in the trade war nf no. i don't see a winner in a trade war. there is no winner in a trade war. i am in favor of getting tough with china. i think china violates a lot of agreements. i think they are stealing a lot of our technology. so that's a separate issue, though, from these steel tariffs, which in that excellent analysis you just did, i think we get 3 or 4% of our steel from china. i don't see this as being well targeted at the country that donald trump is most obsessed about and that is china.
4:31 am
this is going in the end end up hurting american consumers. it's absolutely true that all these american manufacturers that use steel, whether it's our auto industry, whether producers of machinery, heavy equipment, even as the commerce secretary showed yesterday the can of soup from campbell's. all those things are going to cost a little more now. >> let's listen to that we've got it. >> glad you brought it up. take a listen. >> for a beverage can, it's only about three cents worth of steel or aluminum. in this case it happens to be aluminum in it to begin with. so if that goes up 10%, you're talking a fraction of a penny. these products sell for over $1 in the store. so it's nonsense to say that there's a great tragedy looming. >> now, he was saying that in
4:32 am
response to, of course, the markets were taking a dive after all this came out. of course we're now concerned about retaliation. so do you buy his argument? >> let me just say one thing to defend the president. two things, actually. number one, i think wilbur ross and especially donald trump really do care about the steelworkers. i traveled with donald trump on the campaign. we went to a lot of steel mills and things like that. there are a lot of areas of the country where people feel like these trade laws have actually led to the shutting down of factories and loss of american jobs. i think trump has genuinely tried to protect their jobs. i just don't think there this is a very good way of doing it. the problem, as i see it, not so much a penny more you might pay for a can of coke. it's more if we want a competitive auto industry, a competitive cars and trucks and vans and heavy equipment, all the manufacturing products,
4:33 am
those are going to be less competitive as your analysis just showed. that means if our american car companies competing against german car company and we have to pay more for steel, you can see why that would make our companies less competitive. what i would say to donald trump, i would say, mr. president, yeah, you're going to help the steel jobs but what about the 50 jobs per steel job that are going to be negatively affected? in the end i think we may lose jobs as a result of this rather than gain them. >> let's listen to ceo of century aluminum. he supports this idea. >> down 70% in production, thousands of jobs in the last year alone, the price was destroyed a couple years ago. all we think this is doing is correcting abuses and making the environment such that those abuses shouldn't be able to continue anymore. >> we don't know what's in this deal per se, but let's face it,
4:34 am
stephen, this the president keeping a promise at the end of the day. do you think it's going to go through? >> i think you're absolutely right, the president is keeping a promise. for people saying why is he doing this? he campaigned on this. i was there with him when he said these trade deals were the worst things that happened to america. that appealed to workers in ohio, michigan, rust belt states. in the end, i just don't think we're doing the economy a favor. i think the timing of this is odd. as "the wall street journal" said here weave got an economy firing on all cylinders where in a lot of areas of the country the problem is finding workers. construction sites can find workers, a lot of manufacturers seeing a comeback are having a hard time finding skilled workers. i don't think this is well timed. i do hope, christi, that the president does reverse the policy but we will see. he seems a little dug in to me right now. >> looks like he's going to move forward on that. stev stephen moore, thank you very
4:35 am
much. >> thank you, stephen. >> gun companies facing pressure from a major shareholder. we're talking about the investment from black rock. >> they own major stakes in several gun companies and they aren't pleased to how those companies reacted to the parkland shooting in florida. blackrock handles holdings in millions of retirement accounts. in a statement they said they will offer their customers the option to invest in portfolios that exclude down companies. >> russian president vladimir putin flexing his military muscle, as you know, by introducing this invincible missile. the u.s. isn't buying it. how serious should the u.s. be taking these threats. plus jared and ivanka trump's finances. details on the first family's business deals since international the white house. that's coming up.

i accept i don't i even accept i i used thave a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but no matter where i ride, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop.
4:40 am
seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis. so russian president vladimir putin flexing his military muscle, so to speak, boasting about new weaponry he says will make nato defenses useless. in a world he touted an invincible missile with, quote, unlimited range. >> the state department dismissed putin's comments as cheesy and made clear u.s. defense and military defense remain second to none. >> former rt america anchor liz wall with us. good to have you with us. the state department responded to putin's remarks. let's listen here.
4:41 am
>> president putin has confirmed what the united states government has known for a long time that russia has denied prior to this, that russia has been developing destabilizing weapons systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty ensemble dpaobligati. president trump understand what's facing us determined to protect through strength, u.s. capabilities are and will remain second to none. >> the russian threats are the primary reason the u.s. wants to build up its defense budget. first and foremost are you surprised we heard from the state department but we didn't hear directly from president trump in terms of a response to this? >> well, that's the thing, we don't hear a response from the president. we've only heard glowing things about russia and glowing things about russian president vladimir putin. so it is interesting, you hear from leaders abroad they tend to
4:42 am
kind of gain their comfort from those around trump that russian foreign policy and the approach toward russia will remain in line with normal foreign policy norms but you're not hearing it from the president. you still haven't heard him speak out against the meddling in our elections. that's something that is still -- it seems to still make him quite angry when his national security adviser calls out the president for doing so. so no, we still haven't heard anything from the president in regards to this new display of weapons and russia flexing its muscles militarily, in a way that was kind of shocking, the demonstration and this big speech before members of the russian parliament actually showed these missiles raining down on what appears to be florida and we haven't heard anything. >> right. we do know the president spoke in separate phone calls last
4:43 am
week with french president macron and an dpel, a merkel. the leaders at that point we know, and i'm quoting here from what we're told, shared their serious concerns over putin's comments. but when we look globally here, the president knows this is a concern for our allies. so how does the u.s. move forward with this? >> yeah. well, it would be nice to hear the concern from our own president. you're hearing in terms of election meddling and other shows of force that european leaders are kind of taking are being the voice of, you know, standing up to russia. when it came to the elections in france or in germany, for example. you heard very loud condemnation and warnings from the top, from the heads of state saying do not
4:44 am
interfere in our elections. if you do, there will be repercussions. >> do you get the sense that president putin was taunting president trump? >> you do. it's interesting because russia does have an election coming up, so it's possible that he -- what we know from putin's behavior in the past with annexation of crimea, for example, he uses military, his military might to gain the approval of his domestic audience. there's an election coming up. it's widely seen as rigged. the annexation of crimea, military involvement there, really brought his ratings up. the war in syria. supposedly they are backing terrorist there but we know they are targeting civilians. he does use the military to bolster support within russia. at the same time he seems to be, yeah, taunting the president or the united states by basically saying similar language to what we've heard from our president,

details of jared kushner's finances are being looked into by special counsel robert mueller including how his family businesses may have been profiting from his powerful father-in-law which is of course president trump. >> and we're learning that mexico, are israel, united arab emirates and china all discussed ways in which kushner could be
4:50 am
used for their own political leverage. >> christina has more. >> reporter: that's right. jared kushner and his family's real estate holdings do leave him exposed to potential conflicts of interest and vulnerabilities. while he is in the white house and possibly beyond that. this chicago skyscraper is majority owned by jared kushner and his family. mortgage documents show a fund linked to new york city private equity powerhouse apollo global management provided them with $184 million mortgage for the building. apollo was founded by josh harris. months earlier that same executive was in talks with the white house about an advisory role according to a source with knowledge of the discussions. jared stepped down as ceo of the family business since going to washington. butconflicts still

persist. he also met with michael corbett last year. spokespeople for both apollo and citibank says their executives were not involved in granting those loans. >> you also have to worry about whether he has an incentive to use his official power to use the power of the white house to help people that he has business relations with. >> reporter: a curkushner compa spokesperson said there was nothing inappropriate and stories like these attempt to make in-sin ew eighting connections that do not exist. just last week cnn reported that special counsel robert mueller is choiring about kushner approaching foreign investors during the transition including a chinese insurance company and qatari investor for 666 fifth avenue. the building hasn't generated enough profit to cover its
4:52 am
debts. >> 1.8 billion was the record price for a skyscraper, a highly leveraged deal which means the income in the building wasn't even close to covering what they would have to pay in interest. so it was a deal that a lot of people say was doomed from the start. >> reporter: about $1.2 billion in debt on the tower comes due next year. but sources say in a xwhoesh yagss with lenders and new sources of capital need to start soon. kushner companies confirmed it is in talks to buy out its partner in the project, but the question remains how will they pay for it. they declined to comment. >> they are always looking for construction loans and development loans and acquisition loans. so it is an active business. >> reporter: kushner companies also needs to find investors for development in jersey city. the company skulgtszkocompany se a government program that would help foreigners get visas in exchange. and another deal raising

questions, the "new york times" reported that kushner companies received $30 million from one of israel's largest financial institutions just before jared's first diplomatic trip to the company. last week, the "washington post" reported officials from at least four countries, mexico, israel, china and the united arab emirates discussed ways dhee th could manipulate jared. the constant search for capital casts a cloud over jared's white house role because like his father in law, he has refused to fully divest from his holdings. bottom line here is that kushner and his family have complex real estate holdings across the u.s. and during the transition, i was told that kushner and his advisers were essentially trying to reassure ethics officials in washington that these deals would not be problematic because they were inactive, static, boring and these examples really show that these deals are
