2:00 am
a lot of angry voices. >> reporter: a lot of angry voices and people chanting not my president. also, hey, hey, ho, ho, donald trump has got to go. you could feel this in the streets here and across the country. people feeling that hillary clinton who predicted to be the winner of the election having failed to clinch the win. they are very upset and disappointed and they are taking that anger to the streets. >> not my president. not my president. >> reporter: protests breaking out in at least 25 cities. hundreds of demonstrators stopping traffic in los angeles on the busy 101 freeway. while thousands more protested on the streets of l.a. burning trump's head in effigy. police arresting hundreds. in chicago, thousands marching
2:01 am
down the eight-lane highway to the site of donald trump's hotel. the disappointment of some voters. turning to anger. >> hillary had more votes. more human beings voted for hillary. this isn't fair. the country needs you to stand up and say one vote equals one vote. >> reporter: in new york, at least 5,000 people, including lady gaga, protesting outside trump tower. >> you saw this qualified woman to be president being superseded by a man with no qualifications. >> reporter: thousands more targeting the newest hotel in washington, d.c. blocks from the white house. the march turning to peaceful demonstrations and vigils. most of the protests erupting in major cities where hillary clinton won. like portland, oregon.
2:02 am
and denver, colorado. and chris, as you spoke to many of them last night, the interesting thing is there's a lot of disbelief. a sense this was not the outcome these people had wanted and that's why they're here. they said they are fighting racism and sexism and islamaphobia. alisyn. >> deb, we heard from people and they say this is a surreal dream. they continue living in this and they are trying to process it. deb, thank you for the reporting. president obama and president-elect trump will meet at the white house. the first public step to the peaceful transition of power. there has been a lot of bad blood. we have athena jones live in washington. >> reporter: alisyn. this is not a meeting the president wanted to have or ever thought he would have.
2:03 am
he spent months saying donald trump was unfit to be president. now trump has won and the focus shifts to this peaceful transition of power. we heard the president and his team talk about how much they appreciated how smoothly and professionally george w. bush's team handled that transition in 2008 and 2009. we heard the president say in the speech in the rose garden he instructed his folks to follow the example set by the bush team. he also spoke yesterday repeating some of the themes we heard from him way back in 2004 when we were first introduced to obama. talking about red states and blue states. listen to some of that. >> now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election. but the day after we have to remember that we're actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we are not democrats first.
2:04 am
we're not republicans first. we are americans first. >> reporter: we are americans first. echos of 2004 there. white house press secretary josh earnest said it is too early to say what the impact of trump's election will be on obama's top policy priorities. we know donald trump ran on promises to undo much of the president's legacy. we expect to see him try to repeal and replace obamacare. he wants to reverse executive actions on immigration and on power plant regulations. he says he wants to withdraw from agreements like the iran nuclear deal and trans-pacific partnership and the climate deal. the tpp most likely is dead as we heard from congress. a lot could change. i should mention after the meeting at the white house with trump, pence will meet with paul
2:05 am
ryan. >> you have the policy parts and people in the streets in new york, at least, last night which i was seeing this is about the legacy of tolerance. what will america become under a president trump. another big list of questions, who will be part of the government? trump has a couple of months to fill thousands of jobs to prepare his administration. one of washington's favorite games. who gets which spot? cnn's sunlen serfaty is live in washington with the look at names floated. what are you hearing? >> reporter: chris, it is interesting. president-elect trump and his team have been hunkered down and huddled behind closed doors going through candidates. many of the names they will not surprise you. a lot of them pulled from his tight inner circle from the campaign and now could go on to fill out his cabinet and circle in the white house. on day two as president-elect.
2:06 am
donald trump now looking to turn promises into policy. beginning with his call for unity. >> now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. >> reporter: words echoed by president obama and hillary clinton. both pledging a peaceful transition of power. >> we are all rooting for success. >> we must accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. >> reporter: trump now in the throes of building his administration. potentially rewarding some top supporters. republican national convention chairman reince priebus. one option for trump's chief of staff. >> i haven't thought about it. right now, i'm chairman of the party. >> reporter: chris christie who has led his transition team also eyed for top posts.
2:07 am
rudy giuliani, former new york mayor, under consideration for secretary of homeland security. newt gingrich being floated as possible secretary of state. and jeff sessions for defense secretary and billionaire businessman carl ichan. when trump takes office in january, he will have extraordinary power to push through his agenda with major y majorities in both houses of congress. >> he heard voices that other people weren't hearing. he just earned a mandate. >> reporter: and new attention is paid to what candidate trump said about his first 100 days in office would look like. he made several broad promises like cleaning up washington and protecting american workers and restoring the rule of law. he also made very specific promises on the campaign trail to repeal obamacare and ren
2:08 am
renegotiate trade deals and the promise to build the wall. >> cleaning up washington. sounds nicer than drain the swamp. now how do you translate that? sunlen, thank you. let's discuss the meetings and protest with washington bureau chief jackie kucinich. and we have jason johnson. and washington post reporter abby phillip. let's deal with the big meeting that is coming today. you cannot have a starker contrast than trump and obama. clearly, jackie, trump's election is reaction formation in part from president obama. president obama is a man who is known for tolerance of criticism and struggling to find a way to meet with somebody else. trump got in because he tolerates no critics. is this about them today when
2:09 am
they meet or is this just a formality? >> this is about the country. this is about the transfer of power. they have to make this work. and these are also two people who don't personally like each other very much. you know, they have to power through it. >> jason, why does president obama have to be gracious? i'm scurious about the optics? will he and michelle obama glue smiles on their faces and greet them with open arms who questioned his birth and citi n citizenship or can they open the front door with an intern? >> this is always been president and senator barack obama. he has been the dad in chief. he wanted to be the one more gracious and noble. it is in fact one of the things he thinks has defined his presidency. his desire to be reasonable.
2:10 am
i'll be honest with you, i don't think it will be like that in private. i think it will be more contentious. obama recognizes no one benefits if they appear to be contentio s contentious. >> you think they will go at it a little bit? >> i think at some point, obama will say i dealt with it fine. if you take that attitude to running this country, you will see a revolt at the state level and in congress at likes you could not realize. he will tell him that. >> look, it is not about him. it is not his house. it's the white house. transition of power has to be done. the president recognized that. abby, what we are seeing on the streets in the cities is not unexpected. there are a lot of hard feelings here and people are trying to deal with the jekyl and hyde.
2:11 am
let's bind the wound and be together. for many people on the streets, he created the wounds. somehow do you deal with that contrast? >> i think you can't really blame folks for taking donald trump's actual words at face value you. and frankly, for most people who are elected to the presidency, what they say they will do is the strongest indication of what they actually do. it is not surprising to see that. this is also the sort of perennial monday morning quarterbacking in which everybody says we should get rid of the electoral college because it is not working out. it is a wake-up call for people who are not paying close attention to the electoral process. this is in fact the way it works where one candidate can win the popular vote and the other can win the electoral college and become president. i expect the tone at the white
2:12 am
house today will be entirely set by trump. you know, if he comes out the way he did on tuesday night and is very conciliatory and has a plan for how he will express desire to bring the country together, i think this will be a meeting that is cordial in public and cordial in private. president obama doesn't feel this is the time to settle scores with trump. >> jackie, i predict it will be cordial in public and private because when you meet with trump one-on-one, he is polite and he is connected and he does sort of feed off the dynamic of wanting you to like him. all of that stuff. i think it will go so much differently than it ever did in public between these two. >> i agree with you. a lot of what donald trump did and does is for the show. now, should he temper that now he's the president-elect of the united states? yes. he should. it will start having real life
2:13 am
repercussions if he goes off rails on television. >> and also, look. i forget who it was. somebody in the atlantic talked about the difference between the media and the trump followers in terms of how they view trump. the media takes trump literally, but not seriously and his followers take him seriously, but not literally. so, he has an advantage in this which is pleasing his base is the easiest thing for him to do. they got him in there. they feel vindicated. now his task is to walk back all of the ugliness that not just has people in the streets, but more people in the country voted against him than for him. thinking this guy represents us at our worst. >> and economic markets are concerned and foreign leaders are concerned. the '72 movie "the candidate,"
2:14 am
at the end, the guy says what do i do now. if this is civil, it is trump showing humility and says can you help me. that would be amazing if he did. i recognize i have never done this before. obama, give me two pieces of advice. if that happens, that will be a good sign. >> unfortunately, we will never know. this will happen behind closed doors, abby, we won't know what they will say. they won't come out and reveal it, i don't expect. you know, it will be fascinating to watch this from a distance. >> the best we will get is a photo op that i predict. this is the one thing i will predict. it will look extremely awkward. we will have two people who really hate each other sitting next to each other on the couch with cameras flashing. that's what we do in this country. that's what we will see today.
2:15 am
i don't expect to see drama. i also don't expect that donald trump who has not had a history of reaching out to people in this way for sort of advice or anything. i think he believes he can do this job and he will go into it believing that the guy who did it before him didn't do a good enough job. that's why he was elected. >> panel, thank you. stick around. we want to talk about the donald trump transition team. he is working to prepare the president-elect for the first 100 days in office. so what will it look like and how will donald trump govern? all of that is next on "new day." our mission is to produce programs and online content

2:20 am
let's bring back the panel for insights. we have jackie kucinich and manu raju. manu, he said he wanted to drain the swamp on day one and reduce federal regulations and have x-government officials wait five years to become lobbyists. how much of that is doable? >> some of that he can do on his own. including reducing regulations and freeze government contractors. the stuff he needs to do legislatively, a lot harder, alisyn. yesterday, mitch mcconnell, the senate majority leader said term limits well not happen. donald trump has made that a
2:21 am
centerpiece his drain the swamp campaign. there are a number of issues that he will have a difficult time getting through a republican controlled congress. particularly the senate which has 52 republicans and getting anything passed requires 60. i asked mcconnell if he supported a wall on the border with the u.s. and mexico. he would not say. he just said i believe we need to do something effective on border security. he knows that is a difficult thing that republicans could get behind. it shows it is uncertain. republicans don't know if donald trump will come in and push republican ideas like tax cuts and overhauling and repealing obamacare or champion the very controversial proposals that helped propel him to office. >> campaign and poetry and govern and prose, jackie
2:22 am
kucinich. it is nothing poetic what donald trump was saying because it was ugly and divisive. he will not lose his base. he doesn't have to build the wall on day one. he doesn't have to go on an intolerance campaign. there has to be a list of things that will look like progress and quickly. >> donald trump has problems maybe another president-elect doesn't. the story today that they are having trouble even staffing the intelligence and national security -- not just the cabinet secretary. the people who make the government run day-to-day. most of the people who are the top republican officials signed letters saying they would never support donald trump. he is having trouble filling the critical positions. >> his team is calling people in the national security sector. >> and they are saying no. i don't want to be part of the trump administration. >> yes. that is daunting.
2:23 am
that will be an early problem for him that we haven't seen before. >> he said he had that list of almost 100 big shots, past and present, who wanted to be with him. aren't there plenty of human capital for those positions? >> not in terms of who have done this before. he will say i don't want this, guys. there's more than 100 positions to fill. >> abby, it is incredible. it is like let bygones be bygones. you see high profile democrats say let's work together, but behind the scenes, it is different. it is interesting to hear mcconnell say what he said today versus what he said when president obama was becoming president. listen to how he said they will work together. >> i think it is always a
2:24 am
mistake to misread your mandate. i don't think we should act as if we will be in the majority forever. we have been given a temporary lease on power f you will. we need to use it responsibly. i think the american people are looking for results. and to get results in the senate as all of you know, it requires some democratic participation and cooperation. >> abby, it will require participation and american people want results. the same man who was part of the meeting before president obama actually took office and said we will block him at every step of the way. he will get nothing out of us in terms of cooperation. >> there is nothing like having a clean sweep to change your mind about that. also, i was surprised by the reaction among democrats as well. you got some statements from the
2:25 am
hill from elizabeth warren's office and sanders' office. saying if donald trump wants to help the middle class, we will help him. chuck schumer is stating early on it is worth to see how they can make the government work. i think there is an important reason for that. it is because of how donald trump is sort of in the weird ideological space. he is neither very conservative on a lot of policy issues nor liberal on other issues. so, both republicans and democrats are realizing they cannot necessarily count on trump to draw the ideological line. they have to be the ones to do it. that will create interesting d bedfellows in congress in the next few years. it is unclear how that will work out. so far, it is a positive sign to see democrats and republicans suggesting they can actually work it out. >> manu, quickly, do the
2:26 am
democrats have the ability to block? the republicans organized differently. they work unanimously than the democrats do. >> they do, chris, because the republicans will have 52 seats. they need to get 60 to get most legislation passed. there are five red state democrats who will be up for re-election in 2018 who will probably be signing with republicans on a lot of key votes. that is only 57. that means you need three more. that's not easy. particularly if trump is pushing controversy bills. >> thank you, panel. a gearshift here. surgeons operating for 27 hours to separate the two little boys here in new york. they were joined by the head. this morning, we have an update on their condition. could they be back home by christmas? answers ahead. ♪

that fed the collective paranoia of what is going on. when you look at it, it is simple. i did some talk last night. she under performed. he overperformed. with a base of people who don't always vote the way they did in the election. >> over performing is relative. he got fewer votes than romney or mccain. >> true. >> his performance was not out of line with expectations and much as hers under performing. i think if you look at the whole broad picture, she just didn't turn out voters. >> they did not come out and vote. and i was saying that to protesters in the street. never a smart thing to do. i said where were you guys a couple days ago. minorities did not come out and did not vote for her in the percentages that reflected why obama was able to use them to get the white house. neither did women nor college

educated. >> more minorities voted. brian, what should the media soul searching in how we dealt with the last 18 months? >> the bubble was real and the bubble was a huge problem. this is the biggest media failures in many years. i'm not talking about the polling, but going into tuesday night believing that clinton was almost guaranteed to win. >> 90% guaranteed. >> journalists who believed it and clinton. this is a number of failures on a number of levels. part of that is wishful thinking. part of that is the corridor bias. new york and d.c. bias. bottom line, a mass delusion. >> hold on. i have to challenge you. even trump supporters, some of my cousins are trump supporters. they said he is not going to win. they felt also dragged by the thing. we love him, but he will not win. it was everybody. >> you had a reporter on the

air, jim acosta, in trump headquarters, they had no hope. >> that means this was a failure of imagination. we need to keep the door open than we did. and i feel that personally. >> it is always the case. the polls drive too much coverage. while that is going on, you are not covering other things. there were a lot of other things. >> that's a different point. that's why we got it wrong has two parts. the part that matters more to me is what do you think the media was supposed to do with trump that it wasn't doing? we had carl bernstein saying you did not dive in early enough. what was wrong of what you saw in the media? >> to me, there was almost too much coverage of individual gaffes and mistakes by trump which happened so often, it was a volume of it. it never sustained. there was one issue on clinton and that was the one that always

sustained. and so there was a balance which he had all of the things that happen. putin and the comment about women and the university. it was like some of the print outlets were competing for the next thing they could break about trump. the last one just went away. i think the impact was muted in some fashion. there was massive impact on her for the e-mail. >> i think it is different. something is profoundly broken. regard to fact checking or fact-based society. voters knew the good, bad and ugly about trump and good, bad and ugly about clinton. the voters decided and many of them, about half of them, rejected a lot of the journalism produced. the facts on the table. that is not just the media failure. that is something broader. >> i don't know what we do about that. >> what do you do if you tell

the truth and they don't believe it? what do you do? it is the candidate is impervious to the mistake. in the past, he was shamed by it. not this guy. he pushed it aside and it did not effect him the same way. >> this is why i'm a bad guest today. i don't have answers. >> we have to figure it out for the next four years about what we want our role to be and what it should be. we will have that conversation as well. guys, thank you very much. protests erupting in cities as donald trump takes the first steps toward the presidency. we have all that for you next. the world is full of surprising moments.
