deep. they're turning around. >> we have the best political team in the >> hold on a second. >> they're going to fix your mike and we'll get him right back. you're looking at the map there. we're going to explain it. >> a lot of red on that map, as you can see. states that people -- the blue wall that hillary clinton was expected to carry there up along the northern tier did not happen. you can see the yellow. those are the states that are still too close for us to call. >> that's the rust belt. minnesota, we haven't seen since mondale. all he won was minnesota. now, it's too close to call. maybe trump got it. michigan -- let's get back to john berman and take us through those colors and the
significance. >> 290 votes. donald trump ahead by 15,000 votes in michigan. and in new hampshire, this one has been razor thin. donald trump with a 307-vote lead. wow. the headline, though, as you said, the so-called blue wall crumbling. donald trump winning states including wisconsin and pennsylvania. no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988. no republican has won wisconsin since 1984. hillary clinton didn't even go to wisconsin after the convention. she thought she had it in the bag. now one other big surprise in the sea of surprises overnight. donald trump had coattails in congress. republicans will keep control of the senate. they have at least 51 seats in the senate. they don't need mike pence to break any tie. they have a clear majority. in the house of representatives,
at least 235 seats. this has changed. democrats pick up at least six seats. that number has actually gone down. democrats picked up six seats. that's good for them. they hoped as of a few weeks ago they would get much, much more. that didn't happen. donald trump swept republicans into office that didn't support him. guys? >> thanks so much for all of that, john. trump as president-elect addressed the nation for the first time and i'll tell you he said things we never heard him say before. just after 3:00 in the morning and the moment may have changed the man, at least for a moment. he congratulated hillary clinton. he said she fought hard. he said the time for disunity or division is over, it's time to come together. here's a sample. >> i've just received a call from secretary clinton.
she congratulated us. it's about us, it's about us, on our victory. and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign. i mean, she, she fought very hard. hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time. and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. i mean that very sincerely. now, it's time for america to bind the wound of division. have to get together. to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as one yinited people.
it's time. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans and this is so important to me. for those of you who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people. i'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country. >> okay. cnn's sara murray is live at trump tower in new york with what's next for the president-elect. what's the scene there, sara? >> well, good morning. donald trump promised a political revolution and in the wee hours of this morning he certainly delivered on it. now, it's early. not a ton of activity. wu saw donald trump's aides in a
very celebratory mood last night and part of the reason we know so little of what is going to happen next. trump, himself, did not want to plan beyond election day. he wanted to focus on the task at hand. focus on winning this election before he delved into the details of what it would be like to transition to power. what it would be like to plan his administration. now, we do know that the full transition plans were delivered to trump tower yesterday evening. so, we're expecting that they're going to begin looking at those, basically first thing today. and we're also expecting later today that we'll see some kind of meeting between donald trump and president barack obama. obviously, they have exchanged a lot of harsh words on the campaign trail, but there has always been a peaceful transition of power. we have a history of that. and, so, we are sort of expecting to see the two of them work together in these coming months and donald trump goes through his transition and prepares for his inauguration.
>> sara, appreciate it. in just a few hours another big piece of moving forward that is required and that is hillary clinton's concession speech. she did concede on the phone to donald trump in the early morning hours, but we are expected to hear from her in person later this morning. jeff zellany joins us with more. >> she is scheduled to give her formal concession speech after that brief overnight phone call to donald trump. thousands of her supporters were shell shocked early this morning as they left here in manhattan. her campaign planned to be a victory party last night that turn under to anything but. she decided against giving a concession speech last night as the votes came in hoping her blue wall would save her candidacy. when that didn't happen, it was after 2:00 a.m. and she wanted to give a more thoughtful speech. she would wait until all the votes were counted.
but it quickly became clear that wasn't enough. she conceded in that brief phone call to donald trump. her campaign simply did not see this coming. this is a repudiation of her and her biggest partner on the campaign trail, president obama. but i am told her speech later this morning will be focused on trying to heal this country. her adviser said it was not a time for fingerpintiointing, buu can bet that is what is going to happen inside the democratic party going forward. >> so much soul searching by so many people. let's break down this historic moment with our panel. david, for people who are just waking up this morning, who may have gone to sleep last night before all of this broke. how did we get here? >> surprise, surprise, surprise. this was a political earthquake. i think as we've said before, donald trump did last night and on election night something he did throughout this political process. he confounded and stunned
everyone. he had an understanding of the voters that the political class, republican and democrat, the media and the establishment did not have. and connected along class lines to really give voice to those who felt left out from the economy and from our political system. he said it in his acceptance speech. for those who have been forgotten, you will be forgotten no more. and and, now, he faces a big test. he said his opponent should be put in jail. that he'd go after her. that he may not accept the election results. he didn't abide by the rule of law when jim comey said there was nothing to investigate finally about the e-mail server. a lot of fear among the opposition to trump that now he's going to have to deal with. >> look, last night, full disclosure. david and i spent a large part of the evening together and we kept looking at the map and saying, doesn't she have to win something? doesn't something have to go her way? so many of the races were still
so close that at this moment cnn still hasn't called separate races. michigan, minnesota and new hampshire. in michigan, it's a 0.3 differential. in minnesota, it's a one-point differenceal. and in minnesota a 0.1 differential. they are so close, that, again, we're not going to call them. john berman, does it matter if all three were to break for hillary clinton, does the race change? >> no. donald trump has 289 electoral votes. you start to say, this looks like a mandate. this looks like a size of victory that -- >> even though the popular vote may be split? >> the popular vote may go to hillary clinton. but in this country we go by the electoral college and the similarities between his win and barack obama's win especially in 2012 will be great. >> john, last night hillary
clinton did not come to the podium, john podesta came. she is still processing, obviously, what happened and who could blame her? so many people are still processing and figuring out. so many democrats are despondent this morning. and the pundits and the pollsters did not prepare them for this. what went so wrong? >> that's the forensic that is going to need to be done. not just the clinton campaign's modeling. the republican party wasn't so confident going into this. and, clearly, assumptions were made that fell away. we always say the only poll that counts is on election day and we always saying it is a cliche, it's a cliche because it's true. yesterday was the day that proved that point. the fact that right now it's a jump ball in minnesota. minnesota was never supposed to be in play. >> even mondale won it. >> because he's from minnesota. wisconsin hadn't been won by a republican since reagan in '84. so, you have this fundamental shift in the map.
and then the question about the modeling. the hispanic vote is where around mitt romney was four years ago despite donald trump's policies. >> just to be clear on that. the hispanic vote that hillary clinton was hinging, much of what would be her success, did not rise from four years ago. >> nonwhite vote in the united states did go up. more nonwhites voted including hispanics. hillary clinton didn't win more. >> some of them voted for donald trump. >> it's not the size of the pie, it's the size of the slices. >> a larger -- >> you go ahead. >> i was just going to say one of the things that struck me about last night to your point that no one prepared people for this. i was at the hillary rally last night and long after you think people would have left and romney in 2012, everyone was kind of gone and it was just sort of sad. last night, it was just people were huddled around televisions and still in that arena until
the very end. waiting for some sign that this was not happening. it was that unexpected. >> tave udu >> david used the word fear. i am not making a joke, is it better to be loved or feared in politics as on the streets of the bronx? probably better to be feared. motivate action by the democrats and also motivates a challenge for donald trump. how does he go from where he was in this entire campaign to where he was at 3:00 this morning where he says, no more division. i'm here for everybody. that message did not get him to the white house. how does he deliver for the people who put him there who want to drain the swamp and see angry action taken against muslims and others with this idea of working with democrats and being one people. >> by the way, politics that's different than talking about building a wall and banning muslims, talking the way he talked about women in this
campaign. so, there is real fear and loathing that cannot be bridged with him saying, i really want to be the president of everybody. >> his followers this morning are now saying, yay, we can't wait to work together. they're saying, you're on the list. >> very high expectations for what he's supposed to be able to do. one of the things that is interesting, what is one of the first things he talked about? a big surge in the infrastructure spending. is that a sign of how he'll prioritize? that we don't know. >> that was one area where there might be bipartisan, but maybe there is a chance. he is going to need to show that the talk of national unity is more than just talk because of the way he campaigned. but there is also a responsibility on the democratic side of the aisle. a lot of talk on how our country is strong and how we rerezsilie and we need to show that.
it is difficult to heal the wounds of this campaign because of the rhetoric and a lot of the policies that were put forward. he is going to need to lead but other folks need to take responsibility. >> that will be a challenge for democrats because in the morning they may discuss infrastructure spending but in the afternoon repealing obama care. in the afternoon, it's going to be putting a supreme court justice in there that is not garland who has been sitting around and waiting to have hearings for eight months. >> how doo y you -- >> i still think he's going to be held to account for it. >> he will. look, we all have a job to do to hold every presidential account including this new president-elect. what is his relationship with president putin? >> putin congratulated him. >> everything has been going putin's way since brexit.
if you believe in a reaction against globalization and these are the larger frame of our global debate isn't just domestic. of course, there are challenges to democracy. liberal capital is democracy. >> and globalization. >> and globalization. >> and we knew all along in a radical change year, he was radical change and she was the ultimate insider. few believed that would prevail. outcome is pretty much as simple as that. >> panel, thank you very much. coming up on "new day" we want to let you know that kel kellyanne conway is going to join us live. she'll be in the 8:00 hour. stay tuned for that. so much going on. so many numbers and different points of analysis, can we simplify it a little bit and say, look, here is where it was. i say, yes, we're going to break down how we got here, next. >> we'll give it a shot.
the american people have spoken. donald trump will be the 45th president of the united states. let's take a look at exactly who made this happen last night.ris. history in action. what did we see in the exits? >> there were some assumptions that were just shattered last night. donald trump's base was white men and hillary clinton would do better with minorities. trump did better with blacks and latinos than mitt romney did four years ago. nationwide 12% of the electorate is african-american. clinton won 88% of that group. trump with 8%. while that's a huge margin for clinton, five points less than president obama's in 2012. trump narrowed the democrats edge with latinos, as well. 65% breaking for clinton and 29% for trump.
president obama did eight percentage better than that in 2012. trump did well with these groups in battleground states. florida 20% of the eelectorate tell us they're latino. part of the reason he won florida, 63% of that group breaking for clinton. but that wasn't enough. moving to michigan, again, trump winning over groups that were thought to be solidly clinton. looking here at education and race, 33% say they are white college grads. that group broke for trump. so did the 42% of whites who say they do not have a college degree. the only group by education and the only group by education that clinton won overall in that state, people with an advance degree. finally, looking at the age break down in ohio. this was very close to what the electorate looked like nationwide. in ohio trump took every age group except those 18 to 29. that was a major end road for trump in ohio, same as in
pennsylvania, alisyn. we want to bring back our panel. so, those were some shocking revelations that we just heard there. is it correct, just in case anybody missed it it, donald trump did better with blacks and latinos than anyone saw coming. john? >> that seems to absolutely be the case. it's fascinating because it begs the question given his policies and his rhetoric particularly around illegal immigration and his comments and his opening speech as it were. many mexicans being rapists and some being good people, i imagine. how did he perform better than mitt romney with the hispanic community? it seems to defy logic on the surface. >> at this point you look back and realize what a compelling candidate barack obama was in 2008 and 2012 for the minority community. while she did well with them, she could not rebuild the obama coalition.
while she fell short and barely competed for white working class voters or white noncollege voters there, that's where you run -- >> two observations. one, with president-elect trump and what this will mean for the cultural norms. i do not know that the word dulce on a coffee cup is going to be okay any more. we expected that the pie would be bigger or the pie would be smaller. what was not anticipated is that the pie would stay about the same size, but his slice of it would be much bigger than expected. but that was the reality. >> well, and particularly among working class white voters. men and women. that class divide among noncollege educated whites was bigger than the gender gap in her direction. >> she underperformed and he overperformed as a result. it's extraordinary. i don't understand the numbers. what they talked about it being
very important the sentiment towards immigrants. not just your position on immigration reform, but your general mindset towards immigran immigrants, which would include immigrants coming from syria or else where in the middle east. >> isn't there a conservative strain of the hispanic vote that maybe we overlooked? >> yes, well, or, i mean -- >> but the tone. i mean, going back to, you know, what republicans were going to fix after 2012. they talked about talking to hispanics and being a lot more, being a lot more inclusive with their language. that didn't seem to matter. >> it's because they, not they, he, donald trump, president-elect, succeeded in overperforming with a reducing part of the electorate. >> also by the way, kids, millennial voters. hillary clinton won them, but not by enough. every part of the obama coalition she did well, but not well enough. she couldn't build it big enough.
>> answers the question, can he transfer obama -- >> he has elected no one but himself in 2008 and 201. failed at the midterms and failed at this. we have been in a cycle where republicans have been doing very well in mid-term elections. this seems to be a wave elect n election. but in terms of the house and the senate that is in place right now. younger voters that hillary clinton won, but also the third-party candidates did fairly well, particularly with younger voters. now, it's far from clear that was dispositive. as in florida in 2000 when ralph nader won 95 votes. but that is an impact, as well. but however it was, the modeling, the assumptions about latino registration and turnout did not work and he outperformed in other yareyares and she lost rust belt. >> here's another interesting point. when did people decide. the exit polls showed that
people decided, the people who voted for trump and for hillary decided much earlier than we thought. 60% decided before september, before the "access hollywood" tape, before the comey letters that ping-ponging back and forth. they made their decisions a long time ago and stuck with them. >> look, we do talk about this in terms of -- by the time you get to the debates, which we think are big movers, that the electorate has settled in. and, again, i think hillary clinton is such a known commodity in politics. so, people were able to render a judgment about her. >> but i want to take the under on this one because if 8% decided in the last week, which is what that number -- >> that's enough to sway it. let's not mistake it. these margins in some of these states are very close. the 60% doesn't surprise me because you're dealing in the margins. >> the large part of the obama
coalition was being the first african-american president and that would translate to the first female president and it doesn't seem to have done so. republican women, independent women, their support would erode for donald trump. that doesn't seem to happen. >> the historic nature of her candidacy. we have to have a conversation about gender in this country and that overcoming racism is more important than overcoming sexism in this country. >> we do need to talk more about that. panel, thank you very much. global markets down sharply after donald trump's win. so, how will the u.s. markets be impacted today? how is the rest of the world reacting? we discuss all of that, next. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars.
hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on. (laugh) nice. doing the big things that move an economy. see you tomorrow, mac. see you tomorrow, sam. just another day at norfolk southern.
before it became a medicine, it was an idea. a wild "what-if." so scientists went to work. they examined 87 different protein structures and worked for 12 long years. there were thousands of patient volunteers and the hope of millions. and so after it became a medicine, someone who couldn't be cured, could be. me. ♪
we do have breaking news for you right now. global markets are down sharply reacting to the news of donald trump's victory. what are you seeing, christine. >> a big selloff around the world. not as bad as a few hours ago. if you look at dow futures right now, we're still expecting what will be a sell-off at the opening bell. 415 points. had been a lot more than that. but 415 points, more than 2%. that's significant pain in your 401(k). when you look at what happened as if became clear that donald trump was going to secure the presidency, you saw just fall
off a cliff the dow futures. they were down 600 points or so. this is right around the time of what many people thought was a calm and conciliatory speech that he gave. talking about binding the wounds that divide us. you saw the markets come back a little bit. real tough night in asia. 900 points on the nikkei. emergency meetings of financial stability boards in the like in the governments around the world. look at london, paris, frankfurt. this is a flight to safety. this is a scarety cat move. this is the mexican peso and a press conference later today with the mexican central bank and big concerns of what a trump presidency would mean for the mexican economy building a wall, immigration issues, nafta and the like. this is what we expected. we would expected a selloff exactly as you've seen. can't predict it will happen later today. but a lot of people have said
wall street, global investors, they wanted hillary clinton. they didn't get it. here you go. >> we have senior analyst jeffrey toobin and rana and host of "quest means business" richard quest. we're talking about business, let's stick with it for a moment. we expected the markets to react negatively to the election of donald trump. the next layer, what did we hear from other leaders of this being accepted by our friends aboard. what do you see? >> oh, they haven't wasted much time. the president of france, basically says, i've congratulated mr. trump in this situation. this result leads to uncertainty. i urge vigilance because of statements made by donald trump. the foreign minister of iran says whoever is the president of
the u.s. needs to understand the realities of our eregion and have a realistic approach. angela merkel in germany says that the relationship between germany and the u.s. is on the basis of respect of people's dignity regardless of race and religion and on the basis of these values, i'll work with donald trump. the only person celebrating, perhaps, mae, the prime minister of the united kingdom. why? because donald trump said britain would go to the front of the cue, the front of the line when it comes to negotiate agnew trade agreement. >> why are you skipping putin's celebratory -- >> russia is ready and wants to restore the relations with the u.s. we understand this will be difficult, but we are ready to play our part. he is open to a new era. >> could argue they already played their part. the hacking. all right, so, this is a little odd to have other countries in the world talking to the u.s. about being careful to respect
rights and freedoms abroad. usually that message is going the other way, but that's the reality. so, you have the community with their response. what does that mean in terms of threading through economic impact? >> well, what i hear in all these messages is pretty please, let's not start a trade war. let's not have a global tariff world that ends up tipping the u.s. into recession at a time when global growth is already tepid and that was part of the election story here in the u.s. a lot of economic anxiety and also a sense that the economy is rigged. that's something that people feel globally. that's a big part of brexit and that's part of nationalism in asia. you can see the feelings of fear and loathing and that protection and sentiment rise. >> how long are we going to feel that fear and loathing. >> it could be weeks and it could be months. we need to know what kind of president president trump is going to be. he's been very critical of iran, will he build the wall and
taxes, will he cut your taxes? if he does, how will we explode the deficit? a lot of real issues here. campaign promises and statements have been contradictory. until wall street knows and investors know, there will not be certainty for building factories and hiring new people and expanding and for global trade. >> i think one thing we will see certainty on, i don't think we'll see a rate hike this year. the fed will not raise rates because in this environment, it's just too fragile. >> it's important to remember that the u.s. is the fastest growing of all the developed nations. it is still the engine. we can talk about china and it slowed down and the outlook for china is weak and getting worse. the u.s. is still the motor engine that everybody else is looking to. now, it's not going to fail or collapse. but will it sputter as these changes take effect? that's the concern. >> hold on one second. we'll keep talking about business, but i want to bring in jeffrey toobin to talk about another huge aspect of this
election which may have brought a lot of republicans home for donald trump. the supreme court. what does this race mean? >> well, i think we owe president-elect trump the courtesy of believing what he says. and i think he means that he is going to appoint conservatives to the supreme court. that means limitations on gay rights. that means an end to afirmative action. and that means less rights for immigrants. that easier deportations. and this is, you know, what he ran on. it means a criminal prosecution of hillary clinton. and i think all these things are going to happen because this is the core of what he promised. >> you think he'll go after hillary clinton? i think that's a long shot. >> absolutely. >> why would he do that? >> did you listen to any of his rallies? >> i listened to all of them. did you listen to him this morning at 3:00? did he say the word rigged, did he say wall? he was concsulatory and he is te
president now. >> but he didn't repudiate. i mean, his supporters made promises. >> you make a good point. >> look, chris, who he was going to appoint attorney general? rudolph giuliani who has been the leader of the group who said hillary clinton is a criminal. half of his speeches have been about the crimes of hillary clinton are worse than watergate. what is he just supposed to pretend he never said that. >> you think he'll have three cracks at the supreme court? >> i don't know. the democrats will tree to hang on o on. he has one vacancy for sure. one of the genius moves of all time was mitch mcconnell saying to barack obama, we're not going to even take a vote on your
nominee. so, he kept that seat empty. that seat will, obviously, be filled by trump. 83-year-old ruth bader ginsburg and steven briar, you never know how long they're going to serve and presumably they'll try to last throughout trump's term. but, you know, 83 is 83. she had a lot of health problems. i just think, you know, this is what he ran on. and this is what he's going to deliver on. >> panel, thank you. >> you're welcome. we want to look now at the senate races. there's still a lot of uncertainty. let's get to john berman who is helping us with all the numbers. what dayou so you see, john? >> let's look at the chambers. republicans have 51 senate seats. the democrats 47. that guarantees a republican majority. let's take a quick look at the run down. illinois was the one bright spot
for democrats. tammy duckworth and mark kirk. that was the one flip all night long. in florida marco rubio won re-election. after he loss the race for president, he jumped back in the senate race. in indiana todd young beat evan bayh. turned out to have some real problems as a candidate. flipside for the republicans in po po, roy blunt an incumbent there was a troubled candidate, but he was swept into office on the wave defeating jason kander. in nevada, harry reid's senate seat remains in control of his senate seat in that state. new hampshire, still too close to call right now.
the incumbent kelly ayotte 1,500 votes ahead and so too the senate race too close to call. in north carolina, this was thought to be a republican seat in jeopardy and did not turn out to be the case. burr defeated deborah ross and in pennsylvania, pat toomey won re-election there defeating katie mcginty. this one was very close. if hillary clinton performed better in that state, perhaps you would see a different result. ron johnson beat former senator russ feingold. got two big updates for you. guess who just tweeted. president-elect trump. what did he say? right after this message. we also heard from the vatican. okay, so what's our latest data say? our customer is a 21-year-old female. heavily into basketball. wait. data just changed... now she's into disc sports. ah, no she's not. since when? since now. she's into tai chi. she found disc sports too stressful. hold on. let me ask you this... what's she gonna like six months from now?
see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months. while the majority saw 90% clearance. do not use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting, you should be tested for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur... ...tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms... ...such as fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to.
evening. the forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten, again. we will all come together as never before. stark contrast to the message that propelled him to the presidency of the united states. let's bring in one of his earliest supporters in congress, congressman chris collins of new york. he was the first member to endorse donald trump. but the big headline, collins wins in western new york. how do you feel and congratulations. >> oh, chris, i just feel great. yes, i'm very honored to be going back to congress for two more years. i have a great district and constituency but last night was all about watching the results and, you know, i had this, i've had this feeling for eight months, as you know. and i will say that he did as well or better that i thought he might have p. . when he started to pick off, look really strong not only in
ohio and florida, but then wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania. i mean, it was an oh, my god moment and then to know we locked down the senate. i know it had to be a terrible night for nancy pelosi, harry reid, president obama to basically get wiped out. but i think it tells you the mood of the country. how this country is angry at the government. they are not satisfied with where their own lives sit, whether it's a job opportunities or wages. so, quite a night. and i want to thank americans for trusting donald trump and i can just assure them they will not be disappointed. they will be proud to call mr. trump their president as they get to know him as well as i do. >> let's talk about that, congressman. not just nancy pelosi and president obama and hillary clinton who are, obviously, having a very soul searching morning. there are so many democrats that
we've already heard from in just these past eight hours that say how could this happen? they feel panic stricken. donald trump did not run on unity. how does he work his way around now to the unity that you're talking about? >> what i'll say the democrats have no one to blame but themselves. on the congressional floor, i called it the arrogance and smugness. they just knew that donald trump couldn't win, or so they thought. they had this arrogance about themselves and amazing how that comes back. what donald trump did. he won across the united states. he did not win the urban centers. he did not win the minority vote. it's that simple. i don't think he care physical he ever gets the hollywood elitists. i suspect he doesn't want them to come onboard. he has pledged all along that he is going to work to rebuild our cities and make them safer and get jobs back and deal with the education system so he really
lost the minorities. >> right -- >> but also 50% of the popular vote that didn't vote for him. >> right now he's down in the popular vote. we still have some crunching to do with numbers. you know how inefficient the process is. it's not just about the elites. he has half the country that has to be part of this tapestry and he started the right way this morning. in fact, better than you, collins. he started by saying he was concil co conciliatory and the ones on social media, let's drain the swamp and you're on the list and you're on the list. they don't want conciliation and right and wrong. what do you say to those people? >> this is issue based. build the wall and do what we have to do to get our jobs back. but he is going to address the urban centers. that's where he lost. the urban centers and, in particular, we know the
african-americans didn't support him hardly at all. the hispanics. but when he takes positive steps in the cities, relative to crime, jobs and education, they're going to come to understand probably even more so than if hillary were elected. he cares deeply about our urban centers which have been under attack. the crime is rampant. just imagine what goes on in chicago every day. so, as he does address those as a priority, he will win back the backing of those individuals who just didn't trust that he cared about them. and i think some of the, you know, some of the college-educated women that were put off by some comments, they're going to get to know the real donald trump. and while you can't take back something you may have said 20 years ago, it's actions that speak louder than words and they'll find out that mr. trump is president trump respectful and considerate and i think they will look beyond some of those
comments that surfaced and they will be proud to say he is their president. >> so, congressman, he made a lot of promises on the campaign trail. what do you think will be first in terms of will he build the wall? will he talk about tackling, as you say, crime in chicago. what about isis. what do you think his top priority will be? >> well, all of our top priority is to repeal obama care in the first 100 days. we already have the outline of a replacement plan. we've had it for a long time. now, mr. trump will need to weigh in. but we've already had the replacement plan on the shelf. the voters don't need to worry about their 25-year-old or younger staying on their policies or pre-existing conditions. we dealt with those. number one, repeal and replace obama care in the first 100 days and, you know, then the other things will -- you don't feed isis in 90 days, but he's going to have to put together his team. his cabinet, his advisors.
and, again, we're going to take a united front with our allies and even those like china and russia to defeat isis and other parts of the civilized world that is under attack. i believe the wall will be coming. you know, congress had already moved years ago to build a large portion of that wall. now, we can put that in as a priority. and the other one is the trade deals. we are not going to sit back and continue to have our jobs lost to mexico and china. i think the president is going to have to rethink moving those small cars to mexico. >> tgetting those things done will be a tall task and we'll see how it goes. let's deal with first things first. congratulations, congressman collins. both on the presidency to donald trump and your own victory there in western new york. thanks for being on "new day." >> thanks very much, chris.
let's talk about how donald trump pulled off this stunning upset and beat hillary clinton. here to discuss cnn political analyst david gregory and cnn political commentator journalist and author of "a woman in charge." carl bernstein. carl, what are your thoughts this morning? >> this is tragic and dangerous. that what is going to happen in this country, if donald trump follows through on what he said and the tenor of what he said and did in this campaign, there is an underlying racism that we can't get away from that is a big part of this story. and, also, questions about, can a woman be president of the united states right now? but the underlying racism, that was the theme. the idea of walling ourselves off in this country. this is now going to become
policy in some ways. we just heard the congressman talk about our inner cities in a way that defies facts. crime is down in our cities. yes, chicago, there is a murder wave. no question. but the statistics are undeniable. >> historically low. >> all over the country, basically. >> america is also the leading manufacturing engine in the world. but perception is reality, especially in politics. and donald trump took beautiful advantage of that in this election. so, what do we see now as perception versus reality, david. because he comes out in the early morning hours and he doesn't say rigged. he doesn't say wall. he doesn't say muslims. he doesn't say immigrants are all going to get out. he says what we hear from every other president when they're elected. is perception now changing because of his reality? >> i don't think so. i think it will be an overreading of that acceptance speech to have that displaced
what he campaigned on. which was divisive and which frightened his opponents. which was in many ways unamerican talking about jailing his political opponent. there was bipartisan agreement on that. one thing we haven't talked a about a lot the opposition -- what about republican leaders. paul ryan, john mccain, mitch mcconnell. they opposed his talk about a muslim ban. about building a wall. so, what kind of opposition are they going to mount as they work with him or against him and hold him accountable for some of these things that he campaigned on and that his core supporters will expect him to follow up on, including pursuing criminal charges and investigation into the clinton foundation or perhaps more on the e-mail server, despite the fact that the fbi said, you know, i mean, maybe he'll fire jim comey. he says it's all rigged. >> they did not oppose him -- >> they went along with this. >> no, i understand that.
but -- absolutely. but do they exercise some accountability on him in their position of leadership or does he say, look, i'm leading the movement and i can -- because this has been building now. >> but you're judging him as an idelog and that's not what donald trump is. the idea that he is going to make good on his praumsz promis assumes a conviction -- >> actually, he's not an and rather there was, if there was any ideology expressed in this campaign, it was hate, disdain and margealization. that's what he has to overcome if we're going to have some kind of hope. >> you also said he's going to do these things. you have to hold him accountable. barack obama said he was going to close guantanamo bay. not because he didn't want to, but he couldn't because of
circumstances. he ran on these things. >> and he won. >> he voted for -- >> this is about america. not just about donald trump. yes, there is a genuine point of identification that trump and bernie sanders made and they made it early about people who are suffering in this country and in this economy and it resonated and hillary clinton was horribly late to come to recognition of this. >> but sanders didn't say, i will motivate your hatreds and i will write scores for you. >> that is the underlying message of the campaign and a reason why brown and black and immigrant americans are frightened. >> not enough to come out and vote. >> no. they did come out and vote -- >> not enough. >> not enough to defeat him. >> but bernie sanders, like president-elect trump in that tweet talked about the forgotten man and woman out there who felt left behind by the economy and
big institutions including the political process. >> thank you very much. great to have you here this morning. so t wasn't just about electing a president, but that sure as heck was the biggest part. we talked about the senate and the house. do you know how many different ballot measure there's were last night. over 150 and many advanced by citizens and many could change the way of life. christine romans, what did you see? >> on the ballot last night, some key issues. among them, recreational marijuana. california approving a measure to legalize recreational use of pot and arizona and maine's races on these issues have not been decided yet. florida voters overwhelmingly approving medical marijuana use and the first state in the south to do so. arkansas and north dakota deciding and montana voted on easing restrictions. gun measures also on the ballot in four states. voters in maine and nevada deciding on universal background
checks for gun sales, including private transactions. washington state voters approving a matter giving the power to judges to seize guns. arizona and colorado voters phasing in a $12 hourly minimum wage by 2020. a similar measure on the ballot in maine. in washington state approved a measure raising the minimum wage there to $13.50. the minimum wage is $7.25. california voters leaning towards a yes vote now on prop 57 the use of plastic grocery bags statewide. counts are still being counted on that one. looks very close. a lot more coverage of what was certainly a historic election. what do you say, let's get to it. this is cnn breaking news. >> welcome to you viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "new day." donald trump will be the 45th
president of the united states. the president-elect pulling off a stunning upset over hillary clinton. 289 electoral votes at last count. three states still too close to call, but they won't change the outcome for clinton. they could expand the mandate for trump. the billionaire businessman now facing the daunting task of uniting a very divided nation. here are some of his first words as president-elect. >> i just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us, it's about us. on our victory and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign. i mean, she, she fought very hard. >> all right. so as you heard, hillary clinton conceded the race to donald trump. she did n
