pierre thomas has the details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: george, good morning. most investigations like this end up following the money. today, there are growing questions about whether business dealings in the trump family played any role in foreign policy decisions and whether nations other than russia tried to influence the trump campaign. this morning, the special counsel possibly expanding the investigation. to look into whether there was influence peddling not just from russia but the middle east. "the new york times" raising questions about possible attempts by officials of the united arab emirates to buy political influence by directing money to support mr. trump during the presidential campaign. according to "the times," an associate affiliated with the uae visited the white house a number of times, meeting with former adviser steve bannon and the president's son-in-law, jared kushner, whose financial dealings have recently been scrutinized. there are reports surfacing about kushner's business seeking money from qatar. that doesn't materialize.

the president would actually go through on these tariffs, quote, what he has said he has said. if he says something different, it will be something different. >> well, that is true. >> reporter: a major economic decision, george. a major economic move. we haven't seen the paperwork. nobody really knows if the president will fully go through with it. >> we have seen a lot of reaction from overseas. we now have a date for my exclusive interview with james comey. his first since been fired from the fbi by president trump. a special edition of "20/20" on sunday night, april 15th. let's go to rob. tracking storms. >> snow out west. record for the day in salt lake city, there's i-80. a not-so-fun drive, for sure. this storm heading to the plains. a blizzard warning for the northern plains. winter storm warnings as well through minneapolis. and a winter storm watch up for the northeast. here we go again with a potential nor'easter. let's track this.

sexual misconduct. last night, it was about personal statements. and when you think about it, the oscars are a place for you as an actor to tell the world who you are. so we saw a lot of sort of pride in identity and lots of different ways last night. two of my favorite looks were on chadwick boseman and lupita nyong'o from "black panther." you saw -- this is the wakanda. by the way, a preview of what we're going to see in 2019 when the movie is nominated. i loved both of their looks. and lupita with the warrior sash. rita moreno. i have to shout out to her. i love a rewear. she's wearing the exact dress, not a replica, the exact dress she wore 56 years ago. i can't fit into things i wore six years ago let alone 56. >> you talked about personal style. tiffany haddish had her own personal style. there was a meaning behind what she wore. >> she was getting lambasted by people on social media.
there's a meaning behind the dress. i hung out with her throughout the oscar weekend. she told me that this dress was all about paying homage to her father who is from eritrea. he actually passed away. she asked, should i wear it? i said yes. i loved it. it's paying homage to your heritage. >> i thought she looked beautiful. time's up pins on the red carpet as well. >> i mean, the reality is it's always been important on the red carpet. more now than ever. it's not just who are you wearing, but what do you stand for? it's an important message throughout the season. time's up was really big. the biggest trend is probably going to be activism and social politics in a way. it wasn't just about time's up. it was what about you stood for. back to the thing about individuality. lin-manuel miranda wore a pin for every town.
for anti-gun violence. and whoopi goldberg wore a red ribbon for aids awareness. there is so much out there because they realize this is an incredible platform to say what you want to say. >> and speaking of trends, white was a big trend. >> it was a white hot night, darling. jane fonda, fabulous. this proves it gets greater later, right? we saw mary j. blige in the beautiful column dress. she looked beyond chic. and there were so many people in metallics as well. a lot of metallics. gal gadot in the beautiful flapper she had. >> jennifer lawrence. in christian dior. that was really beautiful as well. and white and metallic to me, are one and the same. >> i think, gold, white, red, black. those are all strong colors. i don't think it's a coincidence we saw them. >> right there. >> oh, my gosh. >> a lot of nontraditional tuxes, as well. >> i give it up for the guys.
they looked great. of course, timothee chalamet wore head to toe white. echoing the women there. armie hammer, the velvet tux. car carry grant thing going on. ansel, michael, you didn't know what to wear. you lock so sharp. you make me feel underdressed. that's not good. >> this old thing. >> i just love timothee chalamet. he looked like mr. roark mixed with the ice cream man. >> his mother was with him. i love that. margot robbie's mother was with her, too. i love it. that is the best accessory you could have on any red carpet. thank you. hq trivia oscars edition. we'll be back.
