releasing a short video of his plans for the first 100 days. >> my agenda will be based on a simple core principle -- putting america first. >> reporter: trump's predecessor's opting for news conferences within days of winning the white house. but this event was not open to the press. instead, the former reality tv star turning to a familiar medium -- posting the video on social media. >> i want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here on our great swift actions in six areas, all by executive order, including withdrawing from the transpacific trade deal, congress never passed the deal so mr. trump can pull out. he also wants to cancel restrictions on american energy, a process that is possible but will involve some time and red tape. trump also saying he will impose a five-year lobbying ban on white officials and a lifetime ban on administration officials lobbying foreign governments. plus -- >> i will direct the department

this growing controversy. hallie, good morning. >> hi, savannah. good morning. we are talking about a gathering of the national policy institute here in washington, a conference now causing controversy for what was said and who it was said about. >> reporter: new video now surfacing of a conference of the alt-right, and conservative extremist movement with ties to white nationalism. at the podium, the self-proclaimed leader of the movement, richard spencer using heard in nazi germany. >> for us as europeans, it is only normal again when we are great again. hail trump. hail our people. hail victory. >> reporter: in the crowd, a handful of supporters responding with a straight-arm salute. spencer telling nbc news his words and the crowd's reaction were meant to be what he calls ironic and exuberant. arguing the alt-right isn't a
7:10 am
also praising the president-elect for, as he says, being good for the movement. in response to the conference in washington, a trump transition spokesman says, president-elect trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind and he was elected because he will be a leader for every american. to think otherwise is a complete misrepresentation of the movement that united americans from all backgrounds. >> we say no to racist hate! >> we don't want a white state! >> reporter: throughout h denounced his support of racist groups like the kkk. >> i totally disavow the ku klux klan. i totally disavow david duke. >> i said stop it. if it -- if it helps. i will say it -- i'll say it right to the camera. stop it. >> simply saying "stop it" is not enough. >> reporter: richard cohen represents the southern poverty law center which has counted
7:11 am
offensive graffiti and racial slurs since election night. a spike it says occurred after president-elect trump won the white house. his top advisors facing more questions now about the president-elect's response. >> he's addressed it many times. he's told people to cut it out. he said that on "60 minutes" in front of 32 million people. >> reporter: one of trump's first west wing appointments, controversial chief strategist steve bannon controversial conservative breitbart saying he intend to make it the platform for the alt-right. cohen concerned about the tone that sets for the president-elect's administration. >> he said he wanted to bind the wounds of division, yet in bannon he's appointed someone who's fanned the flames of division. >> but steve bannon in a recent interview with the "wall street journal" says he has zero tolerance for racist or antisemitic overtones of the alt-right. savannah? >> hallie jackson, thank you. let's bring in nicolle wallace.
7:12 am
>> we'll talk more about that white nationalist situation in a second. but let's start with the meeting held in new york yesterday. donald trump inviting media executives and journalists. some of the people in that room i think felt they were about to have some kind of a fresh start. instead, it turned very confrontational with donald trump calling some in the room liars. one person destricribed it as a "blanking firing squad." what happens to a fresh start or is this simply sending a message? >> so donald trump has media. one is that all of us, myself included, relied on polls that turned out to be flat wrong. so there was a message to be delivered i think that not only his supporters but that even the media could have heard openly and acknowledged that we all relied on polls that turned out not to be true. we did miss some of his support and we did miss some of his supporters. that said, launching a hot war
7:13 am
inaugurated really deprives you as a politician -- he's not just a candidate, he's the leader of this country. this is biting your nose to spite your face. >> he released a video setting out the agenda for his first 100 days or so. lots of presidents have chosen to bypass the media and go through their own channels. what did you make of the videotape, in particular what was in it and what wasn't in it. >> hillary clinton and jeb bush announced their runs for the presidency in a similar video. as a tactic be with i one. it is a smart one. but again, there will come a point where you want to speak not just to your supporters who are cheered by its efforts to bypass the media. but when you want to speak to the viewers of programs like this. and this again is going to deprive him of access to a lot of americans that he's going to want to reach. >> in terms of speaking to americans, we just saw hallie's report on that gathering of white nationalists in washington over the weekend. we saw that heil trump salute
7:14 am
what does president-elect trump need to say about that right now to stop that in its tracks? >> we can call it the alt-right and white nationalism. it is white supremacy and there is one answer. it is not only to say they're not with me, it is to denounce it. and in the same way that pressure built on candidate obama to give a speech about race when the conversation in this country about race became very fraught, i think the pressure is building on donald trump to address the between what is plainly white supremacy and his base of support. and if he doesn't, the responsibility will now be on him, if we see some sort of uptick in racial intolerance. this is not really a concern among adults but if you see this kinds of speech spreading to schools, this is squarely on his shoulders. >> nicolle wallace, thank you very much. we turn now to latest on

is size "no save today" has been helping to raise awareness about men's health issues. this morning, it is prostate cancer. according to the american cancer society, 1 in 7 men will get prostate cancer. just last month actor ben stiller revealed that he was diagnosed two years ago and treated successful. he joins us now along with his surgeon, dr. edward schafer, of northwestern university's feinberg school of medicine. good morning to both >> i'm doing great. i was really fortunate that my course of treatment was basically an operation and that was it. >> your status today in terms of cancer is -- >> is. yeah. cancer-free as of today. anybody who's had cancer, you know you just have to keep on checking on it. but i'm really fortunate. >> i mention statistics a second ago, ben. i would imagine when someone tells you those words, you have cancer, statistics don't matter.
8:21 am
been told that. >> yeah. i mean it is surreal. it is not something that i was really thinking about. it wasn't on my radar at all. and if it wasn't for this test that we're going to talk about, i don't know if i would have had as easy a course of treatment or the prognosis that i did have. >> were you 48 years old when diagnosed. no family history. no symptoms. >> there was cancer on my fath cancer specifically. >> your primary care physician, not dr. schafer, had been administering a psa test for what? about two years? >> yeah. he brought up the test to me and explained what it it was. he said it is just basically a test to see. i guess when the first one came in it was a little high. he said i just want to keep giving you this test every few months, about every four, five, six months to see what happens. >> i hear that story and i say
8:22 am
know that it's controversial. why? >> it's controversial because prostate cancer is a common cancer, 1 in 7 men will have it but not everybody who gets prostate cancer will die from it. so we have to really better identify those who have a lethal or aggressive cancer from throws that do not. >> okay. so what would be the downside to at least testing? >> well, in my mind there's not a lot of downside for a patient to know their stats and know where they stand. but some would argue that if the test is unnecessary biopsies or additional tests which can cause anxiety to the patient. >> when you finally came to the decision to treat this, you opted for removal of the prostate. >> yes. >> there are other options. why did you fall on that option? >> because that's what my doctors recommended. >> i'm listening to my doctor. >> i am not a doctor. but i talked to them and ted told me what he thought.
8:23 am
before i settled on ted and i didn't settle, by the way. >> thanks for that, ben. >> the thing is, it is a whole new world and you have to educate yourself. for me it was learning what the options were. he told me about what he thought the best course of treatment would be for the tumor that i had and so i opted for the operation. >> we hear about this operation and the first thing a guy will tell you on a street or when you're at a cocktail party with that guy because there's all kinds of side effects. im impotence, incontinence. >> there could be side effects. when a man is confronted with cancer it is important to understand what is the best treatment for them. men can have difficulty with their urination and with their sexual function after treatment for prostate cancer. it is not just isolated to surgery. so today we really try to do a better job recommending active treatment for men versus just
8:24 am
you if you've had to deal with any of the side effects? >> yeah. but i'm doing good. all good. >> yeah? okay. >> read between the thumbs there. >> i settled for the right doctor. no. i mean it's a real thing though. those are all -- when you're confronted with the question of, hey, do you want to live or do you want to make sure that your sex life is the best it can be? i opted for wanting to get rid of the cancer and then see what happens cool. >> we did a survey with dr. oz as part of this month of men's health. 59% of men we surveyed say they've not discussed the risks and benefits of screening for prostate cancer with their doctor. 54% said they don't know what a psa test even is. what would you say about that? >> that's amazing stat. it is really upsetting to me as a physician and this is what ben and i were really trying to do is talk about this. i think the best and most
8:25 am
or not they should get testing for prostate cancer with their doctor. it is a personal decision. >> you waited a couple years before you came out and told our friend, howard, about this. >> yep. >> so clearly you must have a message for guys out there watching, not only in the month of november when we all get scruffy but every month of the year. >> yeah. i mean for me, it's please talk to your doctor about this, be aware. if it was up to me, i would say every guy should go get tested after the age of especially if you have a family history. the test itself is not harmful. it is what can happen after in terms of overtreatment, those questions. but those are all things can you discuss with your doctor. if i hadn't taken this test i wouldn't have known. i don't know when i would have known until it had probably become something that was not going to have the outcome in terms of the treatment that it did have. >> happy you're okay. >> thank you, plamatt. >> thanks for sharing the story. doctor, great to meet you and thank you very much.
