He understands the importance of defining a mission and only executing the mission that is defined. That is the way things work, but usually presidents don't come out and say that. REX TILLERSON, SECRETARY OF STATE: My view on the nuclear deal is they are in technical compliance of the nuclear arrangement, but if you go back and read the preamble to the JCPOA, the nuclear agreement. ANGUS KING, (I) MAINE: Do you believe it's in our national security interest at the present time to remain in the JCPOA? GENERAL JAMES MATTIS, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: Yes, senator, I do. And he's ignoring them because he is dedicated to undermining anything Barack Obama did, regardless of whether it's useful or not useful, because that's -- he's the anti-Obama president. A lot of Congress -- members of Congress are going to want to do it because Iran has a nasty government. We have it with Iran because we want to contain them. The man responsible for clearing background checks says the errors in the form that Jared Kushner submitted were unprecedented to him.

It would make no sense for anybody who has watched this President for a nanosecond to think that they can control his tweets. And Tim, we're learning that Trump is going to decertify the Iran deal. BURNETT: He's going to do that tomorrow, trying to undo years of work, the biggest national security deal in 40 years. He is going against the advice now of his own top advisers, right? (END VIDEO CLIP) BURNETT: He says he's listening to those around him. He was asked by -- in Congress today, "Can you recall if there's ever been an applicant having to submit for than the detailing 100 errors and omissions who still was able to maintain their security clearance? But the notion that someone of Jared Kushner's level, someone who was going into the White House for very senior job, obviously somebody who would be under the microscope because it is no unusual for the President's son-in-law to have that kind of senior job.

That, you know, I was -- I've been a failure at controlling the President or a failure at controlling his tweeting. JEFF ZELENY, CNN SENIOR WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Erin, I think that is a very difficult job for any president, certainly this president.

Again, I was not sent in, or I was not brought to this job to control anything but the flow of information to our President. So I do believe that John Kelly sees his job as to control, excuse me, who sees the president, what information gets to the president.

Dana, General Kelly specifically said it's not his job to control what the President does.

It's basically forget the outbound, I'm only controlling the inbound.

So he understood that from the beginning and was trying to make that clear today. BURNETT: Yes, pretty embarrassing at the very least. And next, it's a CNN exclusive, first Facebook, then Twitter, now Pokemon Go, the game played by nearly 30 million Americans targeted by Russians to meddle in the election. (END VIDEO CLIP) (COMMERCIAL BREAK) [] BURNETT: New tonight, top Facebook executive, Sheryl Sandberg, admitting she regrets the company did not learn Russia was using its websites to meddle in the presidential election until it was too late.

I did think that the fact that he came out, the fact that he was doing this obvious damage control, but the way that he did it, Erin, he might have said similar thing to what we hear from Sarah Sanders about the media or about this or that or about the President, but the way that he did it with self-deprecating humor, with the calm tone, listening to the reporter's questions, it was a very different kind of demeanor. Many, many senior Republicans who have been around the town a long time, former White House, former Defense Department people, they are very nervous. Plus, an American woman and her family freed tonight after five years o f captives of a Taliban linked group. And President Trump patting himself on the back for his handling of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What grade would you give it? (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SHERYL SANDBERG, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, FACEBOOK: We were looking at this, you know, certainly not as early as we would have liked to because we wished we had found it before it ever happened.

President Trump today doing something he harshly criticized President Obama for doing. The move allows insurance to sell bare bones health care plans that don't meet the Obamacare requirements and it is the most damaging blow so far to Obamacare. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: We were all gathered together for something I believe that's going to be very, very powerful for our nation and very good for a lot of people.

Aired on 7-8p ET Aired October 12, 2017 - ET THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. (END VIDEO CLIP) BURNETT: This is the same Donald Trump though who said this repeatedly about Barack Obama's use of executive orders.

He has told reporters before and again today that, look, he does not control what the president says, what he tweets.

But he can control who sees the President, what information he gets.

ZELENY: Erin, I think the looks on their faces and the tone of their voice kind of tell the story here.
