welcome to set of state the short list got a little longer. >> oh, yeah. >> plus ben carson nominated for a cabinet position. >> and as you can see on the side of the screen this is one of the biggest stories tonight at 6:30 we want ton know what's on your mind. join the conversation as usual to twot us using 5@630 and ben carson not a lot of surprise we hear the rumor for weeks and he picked ben carson to be housing and urban and he will not be joining trump administration. carson doesn't have experience in public housing and donald trump says carson knows what it takes to strength in families in american cities and he's honored tore accept the nomination. >> let's talk about this tonight and oum other things brandon cooper is chairman. >> we were not stopped hear ben carson's name tapped he earlier
was unqualified to run any federal agency what's your take away with ben carson. >> i don't know about that. i'm excited about the appointment and if anyone knows about ben carson he's qualified to lead a federal agency. he is leading neurosurgeon not just in our county but in the world and received high easton horz from naacp and harvard university and to presidential medal of freedom highest civilian honor. it's his personal story that hud secretary he grew up living in public house sfwling does that give you qualification to be the hud secretary just because you grew up in public housing. >> no, i think, again, we're used to certain type of qualifications of people who studied poverty in schools and ivory tollers and elite university and what we have with carson is someone that lived for that struggle and pulled himself out of poverty to be one of the leading neurosurgeons in the world and
the people he'll be serving in this position is a great asset we have not had in office and that will be beneficial for him. >> a lot of talk around the trump administration and who will be secretary of state this is prize because we have a lot of people jockeying for the job. they said there were four and it looked like mitt romney for a while and they're moving along way from mitt romney. brandon where to you stand. republicans with mitt romney say we like where he stands or how dare he criticize done romney. >> mitt romney. great man, great guy ran for office nominee a couple years ago. i think for mroykz in appointment is one to work well with trumen and one he can trust. i share concerns for other people whose voiced kens about appointing someone not just never trumper but pretty far antagonistic against going against trump and again
confident working with mitt romney you'll see him appoint him. >> let me mention the other names in the growing list we seen for secretary of state. also now of course united nations ambassador boltman and exxon mobile ceo rex ill iterson and senator from west virginia joe mansion and retired navy admiral james sbritis. >> greek. >> and do you think. there's a whole lot of names all of a sudden thrown into the hat we have not heard before. what does it tell you about this particular position or choosing someone for this position. >> as know this is the most important cabinet position. and shows how trump leads. begun you moneyed he has democrat in the running and arch rival in the party and someone on the far extreme on the other side. he has a broad, diverse pool of applicants to choose from. and i think that just kind of goes with trump how he will lead in the next four years
regardless of media and he's choose the first person ever the job in the career running the business. >> what's interesting john huntsman former am bar door of china appointed by barack obama he was republican governor of utah for a long while and said four years lightser i'm done i'll run against barack obama. well regarded. >> very well regarded and given what's going on with china and taiwan i think minutesman would be interesting choice i respected him when he someed both sides of the aisle and served president obama administration as am bar door to china that's a smart choice running for secretary of state. >> brandon let me get your overall take so far how the president-elect trump and transition team has done so far in picking and choosing other members of cabinet. >> it's still early and i think that's is one things people realized we looked back at other traniings and three
obama picked his first cabinet picky think he's moving nicely and smoothly. got major appointments left to be filled and so far he's come through a lot of promises with the campaign. priorities in the campaign you seep come to fruition during the cabinet picks. >> there was a lot of consideration considering how it was unknown territory. you wanted to see the names quickly brandon cooper thank you very much. we'll see you soon. >> d.c. mayor muriel bowser will meet with president-elect trump in new york city tomorrow. expecting to catch the mayor any point in see what they'll be discussing these are two people who know each other already from all the tawxz ever the trump owe tell. where do we go from here, fitz. >> politics made strange bed fellows. muriel bowser and donald trump in the same room together is going to be odd pairing. mayor becauseer made no bones about it during this campaign at some point she tweeted
otic in his world and called pollys gross and they locked horns on frevring donald trump image of the city at one point him describing d.c. as inner city unsafe to walk the streets and bowser, though, for the most part steered clear a lot of those efforts to strip the name off the trump hotel and so she did you know keep an eye on the long game here that there was a possibility that donald trump would win the presidential election so they will have a lot donald trump said he was going to as you heard, drain the swamp. he said he was going to freeze federal hiring. that could have significant economic impacts on the district. also he's talked about punishing snk tu arie cities. mayor bower made it clear t. c. will continue its previous position of not cooperating cooperating with mass de pourtations trump called for during the campaign. but you know, there are also
city from a business perspective. one of the things we're interested in talking to the mayor about tonight is how far, how far does this conversation go. do they strictly stick on politicalsh use or is there going to be topic about the future of the trump hotel. remember, we reported last week there was some very serious questions now about any conflicts of interest that the president-elect might enter into once he puts his hand on that bible and takes both of office as 45 president of the united s >> hey, fits. >> department lease on the hotel says you cannot be president and holder of lease and rent he. so at the same time there's a lot, a lot to get to tomorrow. >> you know i can't help but think she also might bring upstatehood and before you talk about that what are you doing in the kitchen? >> what are you doing in that kitchen, fitz. >> don't you always hold your press conferences in kitchensp shawn? >> no. >> that's a first. >> it's a good question we're here at the riverside.
community center and train people for jobs. it's a fantastic program and one of the things they're doing in neighborhoods like here in northeast to get people the kind of job skills they need to get out and get into the working world and learn you know businesses like the food service industry and restaurants and things like that. it's a fantastic location here and it's really you know in the heart this neighborhood. but, it's neighborhoods like this that you know, again, donald trump talked about, very stark terms tans speech this cleveland last year. when he was out on the campaign trail, a lot of the things he said in some circles rubbed people the wrong way and other circles people said that rang true to them. and that some of the concerns and dangers they had about crime in her own neighborhood did ring true to them. you kind of got two sides of the one coin here which someplace it thought see when you hear these things donald trump talks about when he talks about inner city that will be
as well too. you want to talk about the 51 state. >> we got the wrap we'll have to talk about that later: when you cap up with the mayor ask her about it and let us know fitz. >> we'll follow up on you. >> thank you, fitz. >> we'll try to bring that back to you later. >> thank you, fitz as we mentioned fitz well try to catch one the mayor and earlier today we caught one time kaine at the community health centerer and he was talking about protecting affordable and medicaid going into this and medicaid going into this next administration. perfect you try breaking something that 20 million americans have first you should have some proposal on the table what you want to do to fix it. >> well in interview with the wall street your honoral president-elect trump said after meeting with president obama he is willing to compromise on the healthcare law despite pledging to repeal
it he would like to keep the provision that blocks preexisting conditions and continue to allow young people to say on parents' health care plans. >> i have to tell you we had tim cape in here and it's f september it amazing how quick it changes. >> it is you i mean you know a couple weeks ago two he was hoping to be the vice-president and now seems to be back at it. >> back to his job. >> doing what he has to do. >> it will be nass nate toling see how healthcare discussion plays out those are the two most popular provision and try dent people say we don't need individual mandates and those are ideas worth keeping and how they do it we'll see. >> that will be the question. >> we have a republican controlled kong mess. yes we do. >> we'll see. >> let's check in with sue for start of the workweek weather and i have toel you i walked to work today it as nice. >> did you really. >> yes. >> it will not happen again. >> don't do that again tomorrow unless you got the rain gear ready to go because we have a system that will come into town that will bring us some healthy rain.
