Trump’s final days: hiding in the White House and focused on pardons

Pres. Trump has been hiding in the White House and spending his final days as Commander-in-Chief focusing on about 100 pardons and commutations he’s expected to issue in his last full day in office. Trump hasn’t been seen since his trip to Texas nearly a week ago but sources tell CNN he’s taped a farewell message touting his accomplishments. New York Times Foreign Affairs Columnist Thomas Friedman joins AC360 to discuss Trump’s final days in office and what his legacy will be. Plus, the acting Defense Secretary says “we have no intelligence indicating an insider threat” to the inauguration but National Guard members arriving in Washington are being vetted by law enforcement. Jeh Johnson served as Homeland Security Secretary under Pres. Obama and was in charge of security for the Trump’s inauguration four years ago. He tells Anderson Cooper this will be the “most secure domestic event we’ve seen in a very, very long time.”   Airdate: January 18, 2021   Guests: Tom Friedman Jeh Johnson To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
