7:01 am
supports his family on a dollar or two a day. and oprah, there's only one, returns to studio 57. she'll highlight the message of her new movie, "wrinkle in time." you heard about it? and preview her "60 minutes" story on helping kids survive trauma. we begin with the "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> i hate the guy. >> mr. mueller, if he wants to send me to jail send me to jail. then i'll laugh. >> former trump aide nunberg goes on a wild media blitz. >> the white house that doesn't want to comment is -- >> sarah should shut up. >> i have smelled alcohol on your breath. >> well, i -- i've not had a drink. >> a new storm is heading toward the northeast after dumping snow and freezing rain in the dakotas and minnesota. >> watch this thing blow up as the cold air takes hold. a delegation from south korea met with north korean leader kim jong-un. >> the first such meeting since
7:02 am
he took power. >> fights broke out at michigan state university before a speech by white nationalist richard spencer. >> just out of control here now. >> a former russian double agent is critically ill after being overcome by an unknown substance. >> all that -- >> the nfl scouting combine is making an impact -- literally. >> hey! >> all that matters -- >> the man suspected of stealing frances mcdormand's oscar is under arrest -- >> you're hoping people didn't notice you didn't win best actress 2018? >> nunberg says he will probably cooperate after spending the day on the political talk show circuit. >> i would cooperate if it were me. but i'm a different breed of cat. >> yeah, baby doll jake tapper's a beautiful cap you got to get hip to his vibe.
7:03 am
he is way gone, dads yoio. cnn, the most trusted name in bridge. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. i was looking down when he said that and said did he say that? i see why it caught steven dolephen colbert colbert's attention. >> glad to have you back as always. two important systems are targeting tens of millions of people across the u.s. this morning. heavy snow and high winds are causing blizzard conditions in parts of the plains and upper midwest. some places have up to nine inches of snow and more is falling fast. >> oh boy. to the east crews are scrambling to repair downed power lines ahead of another massive winter storm. more than 200,000 customers are still without electricity today after last week's deadly
7:04 am
nor'easter. >> the system is forming off the coast and will reach the northeast later today. it will bring heavy snow and wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour. demark oh demarco morgan has more. major flooding is a concern. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. look at what's left of this home here. you see the first level and also through the basement this happened as a result of last week's storm that caused up to 90 mile-per-hour wind gusts and also historic coastal flooding along with dangerous storm surge. get this -- more than 300 homes along the coast are at risk for this latest storm that's headed our way. nearby duxbury, 30% of the seawall is compromised. they are also concerned about flooding in that area as well. when you talk about the communities that are not on the water, they are worried about power outages. nearly 20,000 are still without power as a result of last week's storm. and they won't get their power restored until sometime this weekend. so the waiting begins.
7:05 am
back to you. >> another headache for northeast. thank you. chief weathercaster lonnii quinn of wcbs is tracking the storm. how bad is it going to be? >> the problem is the storm could possibly take the same track as the one we had five days ago. two major nor'easters within five days. the two elements we're looking at, one south, one north, they merge off the chesapeake. it's forecast to move again along the same track i'm talking about. key point here if it moves closer inland, you'll have more water along the shoreline instead of snow. as of now it looks like even the coast sees rain that changes to snow, and it's all snow inland. snow not as strong but still a nor'easter. winds 40 to 60 miles per hour the last storm, 50 miles per hour. a colder scenario temperatures that are colder means more widespread snow. places now like new york city philadelphia looking to be in this sort of blue/gray color
7:06 am
which equates to eight inches of snow. then you look at hartford connecticut, in the dark blue a foot of snow. you look at catskills and berkshires. this looks to be the bull's-eye about 16 inches of snow with some peaks of 20 inches or more in spots. when you compare the two storms, the one that we just had to the one tomorrow it was windier with the last storm. this one, more widespread snow. coastal flooding was a bigger problem with the last storm. i still believe it's going to be a problem this time, just not as severe. power outages with both storms. the winds may not be as strong but the trees have been weakened by the storm. the ground is saturated, and we've got another storm on the way. gayle? >> now we know what to expect and it ain't pretty. thanks, i think. we're following major developments on the korean peninsula this morning after an historic meeting. south korea says north korean dictator kim jong-un said the north would be willing to give up its nuclear weapons if certain conditions are
7:07 am
guaranteed. he also agreed to halt nuclear missile talks if the u.s. holds talks with his regime. north korea and south korea will hold a summit next month. ben tracy is in beijing with what the apparent breakthrough means. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. these are really extraordinary developments with north korea. the regime is now apparently saying that it won't use nuclear or conventional weapons on south korea. it's also saying that it doesn't even need its nuclear weapons at all if it is given a security guarantee. although it's not entirely clear what that means. now all of this comes after this extraordinary meeting between kim jong-un and a delegation from south korea that took place in pyongyang on monday. their dinner together included kim jong-un's wife and is said to have lasted for more than four hours. north korean state media says that kim says that he hopes to write a new history of national reunification. all of this account complicate the trump administration's strategy of isolating north korea with sanctions.
7:08 am
the u.s. has said that it is open to diplomacy but only if north korea abandoned its nuclear weapons program first. now part of the delegation to north korea was south korea's head of national intelligence. he is now likely to be able to give u.s. officials a good read on kim jong-un's state of mind and whether the extraordinary promises are to be believed. john? >> ben tracy in beijing. these are extraordinary developments. this is essentially what the administration has been asking for to get to the table. thank you very much, ben. former trump campaign aide who spent hours telling the world he would challenge special counsel robert mueller now says he plans to cooperate with him. sam nunberg started the media brarage after getting a subpoena to testify to the grand jury and provide information. >> nunberg said it was ridiculous for mueller to ask for all his communications from the president and nine other people going back to november,
7:09 am
2015. at one point he dared mueller to have him arrested. last night, nunberg said he would find a way to hand over the information. paula reid is at the white house with the significance of his extraordinary outburst. extraordinary is an understatement given his performance last night. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. legal experts tell me this is indeed a high-risk maneuver by nunberg because he if he does not fully cooperate with the interest special counsel's office, they could make an example of him, hold him in contempt. that comes with jail time. >> if he wants to send me to jail, he can send me to jail. then i'll laugh. >> reporter: during a whirlwind tour on cable news former trump campaign aide sam nunberg said -- >> i'm not going to spend 80 hours going over emails. i'm not going to go into a grand jury. >> reporter: by monday night, he appeared of to had a change of heart. >> i would be willing to go in for testimony. i want it to be fair. >> reporter: in an apparent
7:10 am
subpoena from the special counsel, nunberg was asked to turn over records of communication with the president and his inner circle including hope hicks, steve bannon and former trump campaign adviser roger stone. >> definitely had roger stone's emails. they asked me questions about roger and me that they would only have had roger's emails. >> reporter: stone has admitted to being in contact with wikileaks which published thousands of emails hacked by the clinton campaign by russia. stone has denied any knowledge of russian collusion during the 2016 election. >> there's all kind of questions that could come out of those emails, assuming he produced them. >> reporter: kim whaley is a former prosecutor who said the media blitz was not in nunberg's best interest. >> it's better to comply and be quiet in these circumstances. >> reporter: nunberg was fired by the trump campaign in august, 2015, two months after it officially launched. he didn't hide his feelings about his former boss. >> do you know the way i've been treated by donald trump?
7:11 am
i mean i hate the guy. >> reporter: previously interviewed by federal investigators for more than five hours, nunberg believes mueller may have evidence that the president has committed a crime. >> may very well done something during the election with the russians. >> reporter: the special counsel's office has declined to comment on nunberg's allegations, but the white house is pushing back. press secretary sarah huckabee sanders says that nunberg's claim that the president may have committed a crime is incorrect and said once again that there was no collusion with russia. gayle? >> thank you paula. president trump is not letting gop criticism deflect him from imposing tariffs on u.s. steel and aluminum imports. house speaker paul ryan says he is extremely worried about the consequences of the president's plan. other republicans want to stop the tariffs altogether. chip reid is at the white house with the latest on this. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. white house press secretary sarah sanders said the president doesn't have to agree with the house speaker. she said the president is
7:12 am
committed to imposing tariffs as a matter of national and economic security and to fulfill a campaign promise to protect the steel industry. >> no, we're not backing down. >> reporter: president trump doubled down on his pledge to slap steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, alarming republicans who fear a trade war -- [ bell ] -- that could wipe out economic gains. >> i don't think so -- >> reporter: the president dismissed that prediction. republican leaders in both houses are exploring ways to block or scale back the tariffs if the president follows through. >> nobody ever wins trade wars. >> reporter: arizona senator jeff flake -- >> trade wars are only lost by all involved. and the president continues to treat trade as a zero-sum game. >> reporter: in a rare public split, house speaker paul ryan's office said they were urging the white house to not advance with this plan. >> our country on trade has been ripped off by virtually every country in the world. whether it's friend or enemy.
7:13 am
everybody. >> reporter: the president says the tariffs will help rescue the steel and aluminum industries but a study released monday predicted they would lead to a loss of nearly 150,000 jobs. the proposed tariffs would primarily hit longtime u.s. allies, canada britain, germany, south korea, and japan. the european union has said it will retaliate by taxing american imports. president trump said he'd respond by slapping tariffs on karim ports from -- car imports from the eu. >> if they want to do something, we'll tax their cars that they send in here like water. >> reporter: president trump also spoke with canadian prime minister justin trudeau about trade yesterday. trudeau's office said he told the president he has serious concerns about these tariffs on steel and lumpaluminum. >> chip from the white house, thank you very much. west virginia teachers will surround the state capitol again this morning to put new pressure on lawmakers to raise their salaries. 35,000 educators are on strike

a big week right here in studio 57. she'll preview her new movie, "a wrinkle in time," and her latest "60 minutes" story. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> blizzard conditions in parts of the midwest. some places have up to nine inches of snow, and more is fall falling fast. this happened as a result of last week's storm. more than re at risk for this latest storm. >> the problem is you've got a storm that's going to take the very same track or possibly could be taking the same track as the one we just had five days ago. two major nor'easters within five days. the regime is saying that it won't use nuclear or conventional weapons on south korea. it's also saying that it doesn't even need its nuclear weapons if it is given a security guarantee. legal experts tell me this is indeed a high-risk maneuver by nunberg because if he does not fully cooperate with the special counsel's office they could choose to make an example out of him. sarah sanders said the president is committed to a nal and economic

8:02 am
>> reporter: if these promises by north korea are to be believed this is a very big breakthrough. basically the south koreans are saying that during this meeting they had with kim jong-un, that the north koreans promised that they would not use nuclear or conventional weapons on south korea. they said they would even consider giving up their nuclear weapons program, the whole thing, if military threats against north korea can be resolved. but keep in mind that north korea has repeatedly said it won't put its nuclear weapons program on the negotiating table, and it is not clear why their position has suddenly changed. this meeting was the first time kim jong-un has ever met with a delegation from the south. perhaps he really came to make progress and not just exchange pleasantries. >> and american officials are always wary of the fact that north korea has shifting and multiple positions. isn't this exactly what the united states hoped would happen in terms of north korea and their evolution? >> reporter: yeah, this is pretty much exactly trump administration has been asking for in terms of north
8:03 am
alt i to be willing to talk about negotiating its weapons program. the big question is the u.s. will need to decide if it's still willing to go through with planned military exercises with south korea. those were postponed during the olympics, but they're set to resume in early april. that would be just as north and south korea are preparing for the summit they just agreed to. what we also don't know is if north korea is going to ask for any relief from international sanctions before it would make good on any of these promises. the trump administration has consistently said it's not going to back off its program of what it calls maximum pressure on north korea until it's willing to give up its weapons. >> ben tracey in beijing. thanks. careful early dance steps. maybe something more there. >> to be continued for sure. voters in texas are heading to the polls todday in statewide primary elections, and there are more than 160 women competing in local, state, and federal primaries. all part of a national wave of

8:05 am
that's a characteristic you hear about women running. >> all that is happening is bickering and fighting. you know, we have kids that big bicker and fight, and we solve that every day. >> reporter: nearly 500 women are likely running for congress a new record. roughly 200 more are exploring bids for statewide offices. nearly 70% debbie walsh tracks female candidates at the center for tics. >> we saw this increase start to happen almost immediately after the 2016 presidential election and i think much of this has been in response to the election of donald trump. >> reporter: for johnson and ramos, hillary clinton's defeat felt personal. >> i was devastated. i was devastated. i didn't immediately decide i needed to run. i just knew that i needed to bump it up a notch. >> the women's march was really instrumental march after march of cities all across the country. and this outpouring of women saying enough is enough. >> reporter: the increase in republican women running has been much smaller.
8:06 am
but blanco and sarver also found it in 2016. >> i don't like the tone of the party. do i step back and wait or try and dive in and make it better? i want to stand next to the president and praise the policies i agree with when he's governing with conservative principles, but be willing to call out the politics and rhetoric. >> i think that our party's forgetting that it is the women, the republican party has so many republican women clubs everywhere. and they're actually the heartbeat of everything. >> if we sat down and had coffee together even though we're republicans and democrats, we could come up with some very meaningful solutions. >> i think that's exactly why we're seeing so many women run. >> thank you for your support. >> reporter: now these women have obvious differences on policy questions, the size of government, and they're in competitive races like most candidates across the country. regardless of whether they win or lose they said they are going to keep working to find solutions. >> big changes in my home state. jan, thank you. oprah winfrey went to the

wrinkle in time," have you heard about it? it hits theaters nationwide on friday. we'll talk about her role as mrs. which later in the broadcast. and for sunday's "60 minutes," oprah traveled to milwaukee, that's where she grew up, to learn about a revolutionary approach to a c traumashe ta high-profile events like the columbine shooting. here's a preview of oprah's report. >> that very same sensitivity that makes you able to learn language just like that as an infant makes you highly vulnerable to chaos, threat inconsistency, predictability -- >> violence. >> violence. children are much more sensitive to developmental trauma than adults. >> if you're a child who's raised in a nurturing and well cared for environment, you're more likely to have a well-wired brain? >> correct. >> if you're a child raised in an environment of chaos, uncertainty, of violence of neglect, are you being wired -- >> differently.

8:16 am
would. it is definitively -- it has definitively changed the way i see people in the world, and it has definitively changed the way i will now be operating my school in south africa and going forward any philanthropic efforts that i'm engaged in because -- >> that's huge for you to say that, oprah. >> it's huge. if i could be a dancing emoji about it i would. i think it's that important to our culture. >> it's changed your view from what to what? >> well what i recognize is is that a lot of ngos, people working in philanthropic world, who are trying to help disadvantaged, challenged people from backgrounds that have been disenfranchised are working on the wrong thing. unless you fix the trauma that has caused people to be the way they are literally change the way brains operate if you're in a chaotic development as a child, unless you fix the trauma, you're working on the
8:17 am
wrong thing. for instance, you have job programs and training programs and all of that stuff that we've been doing for years, but if you don't fix the hole in the soul the thing that is where the wounds started, you're working at the wrong thing. so it's changed the way i operate my school. we've become as a result of this piece that i did on "60 minutes," i went back to my board and said, hey, we've been doing it all wrong. we need to be a trauma-informed care institution. >> one child welfare agency in milwaukee said that they even changed their approach it a child instead of what's wrong to you to what happened. >> i have to say that was the life-changing question that -- that my -- my whole sense has responded to. we go through life and see kids who are misbehaving. you juvenile delinquents, we label them. really the question that we should be asking is not what's wrong with that child but what happened to that child. then having the resources to be
8:18 am
able to address what happened to you. the most important question you can ask of anybody which is what i now say even for the parkland shooting. instead of what's the matter with that kid, i say what happened to that child? >> it's a personal story for you. number one, it's in milwaukee where you were raised. you certainly suffered trauma there. you weren't physically abused in your home, but you talk candidly about -- >> i got enough whippings to call it -- we didn't call it physical abuse at the time. >> a whipping. >> today i would have to report my mama. >> today it would be. you've been candid about the sexual abuse. and a lot of these kids suffer from ptsd. i marvel oprah, that the environment you grew up in that you don't seem to have suffered from ptsd. are you rethinking that? >> no i -- i definitely do not have ptsd. the reason i didn't -- i asked bruce perry this question head of the child trauma institute, how come some kids like myself raised in chaotic environments turn on the to be okay? it's directly proportional to the relationships. so he was saying for me for
