    In the day's other news, the National Park Service confirms President Trump ordered it to put out more photos of his inauguration crowd. That came in a phone call to the agency's acting head on Saturday. The Washington Post reports the president was angry over images that showed his crowd was dwarfed by President Obama's in 2009.

    A White House spokesman responded today, saying, President Trump is someone who takes action and gets things done.


    The new American ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, is starting her tenure with a warning. This was Nikki Haley's first day on the job at the U.N., and she pledged support for U.S. allies. But the former South Carolina governor also made it known — quote — "For those that don't have our back, we're taking names."


    Seventy-two years ago today, Soviet troops liberated the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz, Poland.

    Today, elderly survivors gathered there to mark the event on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Along with the Polish prime minister, they laid candles at a monument for more than six million Jews murdered by the Nazis, including more than one million at Auschwitz.

  • BOGDAN BARTNIKOWSKI, Auschwitz Survivor (through interpreter):

    I don't feel like a guest of honor here. I always feel either like a former prisoner or a prisoner, because when I walk down this corridor, the one we just entered through, I still walk naked, just like then, because this is in my memory, and not just mine. I speak with other survivors. We are all branded for life with these horrible experiences.


    At the United Nations today, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned that anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim hatred are on the rise. He said irrationality and intolerance are back.


    The U.S. economy's growth in 2016 was the weakest in five years. The Commerce Department reports the rate of expansion was just 1.6 percent from the year before. President Trump has set a goal of doubling the growth rate to 4 percent a year through tax cuts, public works spending and deregulation.


    And Wall Street finished this Friday with a lackluster showing, thanks in part to the disappointing data on growth. The Dow Jones industrial average lost seven points to close at 20093. The Nasdaq rose five points, and the S&P 500 slipped two. For the week, the Dow and the S&P rose 1 percent or more. The Nasdaq was up nearly 2 percent.
