"outfront" next. breaking nudes. donald trump speaking out tonight saying he may keep parts of the obamacare. after vowing repeatedly to repeal it. is he walking back his campaign promise. and the anti-trump protesters taking to the streets. and trump promising a wall on the u.s./mexico border. will hi build it and? what would this wall actually
look like? a special report from on the ground. let's go "outfront." good evening. i'm erin burnett. the breaking news. trump walks it back. president elect donald trump telling the wall street journal he's considering leaving in place part of obama's signature healthcare law. he's now saying obamacare could amended. this after president obama asked trump to reconsider repealing the law during their hour and a half meeting at the white house yesterday. as the stunning turnaround for a man who of course campaigned on repealing obamacare and in an interview with cbs's 60 minutes trump further explained his position on obamacare. here he is. >> let me ask you about obamacare, which you say you are going to repeal and replace. when you replace it, are you going to make sure that people with pre conditions are still covered? >> yes. because it happens to be one of the strojs assets. >> you are going to keep that.
>> also with the children living with their parents for an extended periods. >> we're going to very much try and keep that. adds cost but it is very much something we're going to try and keep. >> and there is going to be a period before you repeal and before you replace it when millions are -- >> we're going to do it simultaneously. it will be just fine. that's what i do. i know how to do this stuff. we're going to repeal it and replace it. we're not going zr a two day period and we're not going to have a two year period where there is nothing. it will be repealed and replaced and we'll know. and it will be great healthcare for much less money. >> in that same interview trump talked for the first time about the calls, the phone calls he got on election fight in hillary and bill clinton. here he is. >> hillary called you. tell us about that phone call. >> so hillary called, and it was a lovely call. and it was a tough call for her. i mean, i can imagine.
tougher for her than it would have been for me. and if for me it would have been very difficult. she couldn't have been nicer. she just said congratulations donald. well done. and i said i want to thank you very much. you were a great competitor. she's very strong and very smart. >> what about bill clinton? did you talk to him? >> he called the next day. actually called last night. >> what did he say? >> and he -- he couldn't have been more gracious. he said it was an amazing run. one of the most amazing he's ever seen. he was very, very -- really very nice. >> you know, you said that you might call president obama for advice. would you think of calling plint for advice. >> well he's a very talented guy. both of thempresident clinton f >> well he's a very talented guy. both of them. i would certainly think about
that. >> a lot of news tonight. we begin with sara murray in washington. sara, you have been corying trump from the beginning of the campaign and let's start with what he first, now the wall street journal is reporting and what you just saw, a shocking change on obamacare. >> repeal and replace for obamacare has really been on a rallying callen if donald trump on the campaign trailed. but at times he did give signal he is would be willing to keep certain provrgss of the healthcare law. the difference is now his words take on a lot more weight now that he's the president elect. after his full-throated campaign calls to repeal president obama's signature healthcare law. >> real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing oback. trump obamacare
>> either obamacare will be amended or repealed and replaced. the latest look at trump's priorities as he turns to his v.p. mike pence to take the lead on transition planning, a role previously held by new jersey governor christie chris christie. as trump hunkered down in new york, palace inintrigue in washington was running wild. >> reporter: monk tamong the candidates for chief of staff, reince priebus. republican national committee chairman and buoyed trump's
successful presidential bid with the gop's data and ground operation. >> ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, donald trump. >> reporter: but filling the role is already sparking friction among trump's team. priebus is the favorite option among some but his washington insider status is being weighed against a more unorthodox option. steve bannon. he served as the trump campaign ceo briefly pulling back from his role as the head of the right wing website bright bart. but his tenure there would be surely make him a contentious pick and provide fodder fur liberals. harry reid declared the election of donald trump has emboldened the forces of hate and wigtry in ameri one other thing is a question about how divided we are right now. and whether donald trump thinks
he may have gone too far in noif his campaign rhetoric. in which he told the wall street journal, no i won. >> let's go to manu raju. he's going to have the house. he's going to have the senate. this is a shocking shift from trump on obamacare. this you have seen congressmen and senators dedicate their lives over the last couple years to getting rid of obamacare. what is the reaction when he says there are parts he wants to keep. there are parts that are working. he wants to amend. >> we haven't heard a lot yet because republicans are not in washington. they are actually on a recess and a lot of members have not yet seen what donald trump has said. but it is bound to have set many of his more conservative members who have said repeatedly they want to repeal the law root and branch. those two provxs we talked about keeping -- [indiscernible] and keeping children on their parents plan till the age of six those are still popular with both parties but at the same
time his comments team so indicate there are limits as to what donald trump can do as president. while he can repeal maligns that effect if budget on a party line vote in the senate we cannot repeal recall of it unless he has democratic support and we know that is not going to happen. so the question tonight erin is how will donald trump supporters react when they find he's willing to compromise on the central campaign promises. he'll neat 60 votes in the senate. eight democratic senatorsot an easy task. >> "outfront" now. our panel of awesomeness. this was not a fly by night from donald trump where he kind of briefly jumped on the band wagon
about obamacare. just in case somebody didn't see any of his rallies. let me just explain. >> obamacare is a disaster. you know it. and we know it. obamacare is going to be repealed and replaced. obamacare is a disaster. it is over for obamacare. obamacare is just blowing up. >> so now he's saying he wants to keep parts of it. he's completely changed. that was just campaign talk. this is the real trump. this is the most -- example of the difference between campaigning and governing. you go talk to president obama. you go to the hill and you are talking about the speerkt speaker ryan and mcconnell about. and rhetoric falls away. the rallying cries of campaigning repeal and replace come down to negotiating and compromise. and one thing president elect trump has sold himself as is
he's a really good negotiator. and he will get you much better program that will keep the most popular parts. the thing he has to reckon with -- >> and the cost for couraging -- for the things that are particular he say he's going keep. v selena when you look at trump supporters, 83% in exit polls said they thought obamacare went too far. and you said the press takes trump literally but not seriously. his supporters take him seriously but not literally. but on obamacare didn't they take him literally. >> yes they did take him literally but i think people underestimate, our maybe the press underestimate the voters' understanding of how the process works. and people know that this takes time. and when i interviewed trump earlier in the spring he had also said the same thing about keeping those portions of
obamacare in in and they remain not only popular with people but also remain popular with part of the congressional delegation. they think those are important components to keep in there. i don't think people had a general understanding. they were trying to switch off and everything was going to be gone and then you start over. >> is there a concern because you are going to keep the things that are popular but you are mad about the cost. those two things go together. >> i don't think there is a concern. he's keeping these provisions going back to march. that is number one. but number two it will be up to donald trump to come up with a new plan. i would encourage him to look at paul ryan's plan. as the very good plan and what it does is opens up state lines, allowing insurance companies to compete. bringing down the costs and addressing the root problem which will bring down costs and make it affordable for every american. >> his cabinet and administration. this chief of staff situation whether reince priebus or steve
bannon. it is leaning towards reince priebus. i guess you could always have a night march in there. but now we're hearing chris christie who was in charge of the -- but mike pence and may not even have the job in the administration. and they are telling it it had to do with bridgegate and his loyalty. here is the thing. chris christie was the first guy out to get behind donald trump and he dempbded him again and again and again. if trump is questioning christie's loyalty. what does that mean for how many people there are to step into the jobs. >> i think the people who step into the jobs need to be prepared to have their heads cutoff if they do the wrong thing. paul manefort. was the campaign manager until he became a political liability with ukraine and russia. at which point he was cut loose. and donald trump is a person who thrives on loyalty but he's also not someone who takes risks with
people who he feels are not performing in a way he needs them to. chris christie is a huge political liability. very unpopular in his own state. bridgegate is still out there and frankly not a big surprise. >> during the summer when they were doing the v.p. search i remember talking to trump advisors about mike pence, and christie. and they said why are you guys talking about chris christie. will mr. trump knew how much baggage christie would bring. >> what does this loyalty statement mean to you though? >> it is incredible because mike pence has actually had some very harsh words for donald trump on some rorecords of the course of the campaign. so i wonder what the loyalty issue is. but chris christie is not would have been the rockefeller republicans. but hess one of the last northeastern more moderate
republicans. i don't think so it serves him well. and in addition to that, two of his colleagues, his lieutenants were convicted very recently. so that. >> to brazil's point, there are only a handful of jobs you don't need confirmation for or security clearance. that is on obstacle. >> all with me. next more of our breaking news. anti-trump protesters on the streets of miami and atlanta gathering. we're going to go there live and hillary clinton make herg first appearance tonight. she's going to be in an event. her campaign officials talk about who's to blame for the defeat. wait tell you see who they are pointing the finger at specifically. and then trump's promise to build the wall. what would the wall actually look like? ♪

rallies and protests against trump across the country. the third night in a row. right now atlanta and miami, people gathering in those cities. marchers expected also in dallas and san diego. and we already saw protesters in orlando, nashville and other cities. miguel marquez is "outfront." >> reporter: protests. >> all protester, you are under arrest. >> turning to rage and riot in portland. >> this is what happens when you elect a fascist racist bigot. >> reporter: tonight fromhold to honolulu, protests all in relation to donald trump. with protests ramping up over several days the president elect in a classic trump move taunted
protesters with this tweet. just had a very open and successful presidential election now professional protesters incited by the media are protesting. very unfair. nine hours later, taking a more presidential tone he tweeted, love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. we will all come together and be proud. none of this is a surprise or comfort to those angry over his election. >> with this president elect i -- words can't describe how disgusted i am that he was elected over hillary. >> reporter: 2016 sow the lowest voter turnout in 20 years but democrats sat on their hands in bigger numbers. this year six million fewer democrats. what exactly are protesters protesting? what do they want? >> i think he needs to really address all of the divisive,
hateful things he's said in the past and recant them. denounce them. >> i am in support of people getting out there and saying this is what they believe in and this is something we cannot let become the new standard and norm within our country. >> this is absolutely extraordinary. this is fifth avenue. this is friday night. this should be jammed with traffic. nypd has shut it down. there is a small amount of protesters on the south side marched up to this area and then another knot of protesters came in from the north side. they started moving them off. making a couple of arrests there. it is absolute chaos. to boot they have just found a suspicious package down there and moved all of the press out. absolute chaos. it is going to be a huge adjustment for new york and clearly a giant adjustment for the country. >> thank you and back with my panel. phillip you have been out with the protesters here in new york city. obviously trump with two very different tweets but at first
saying what another trump supporter i said on this show last night, which is professional protesters. >> that is what this is about. what kid you see? >> i saw a lot of young people. lot of young women. lot of people of color. 2-1 margin they supported hillary clinton over donald trump here. it is easy to get 7,000 people who are mad about the results of this election on the streets. obviously what's happening here is donald trump wants to undermine the valid complaints these people have about the rhetoric he used during the campaign. and by calling them paid professional protesters that is what he's hoping to do. >> donald trump paradesed trais passion of these protesters. >> and -- >> he reversed credit. i understand his frustration absolutely. and also with the caricature that was made about him during this election, that probably is motivating a lot of these protesters.
but as phillip mentioned, they are young and i think there is a malaise of young people who don't have jobs who haven't student loan debt and don't trust government. but they will be surprised. >> it wasn't really a caricature. he said these things. he wasn't a person known for nuance and didn't run a metaphorable rial campaig metaphoral campaign. so i think a what we're seeing in the protests is that a lot of that rhetoric then becomes normalized and institutionalized because of his victory and that i think is something that i would hope a lot of young people, and all the folks out there professional or not, would actually take the time to protest against. it is about keeping him accountable for what he said and making sure he doesn't institutionalize that kind of rhetoric. >> has he learned? in 2012 when mitt romney, looked like he would win the popular vote but lose the electoral vote, which is obviously -- trump is the --. now you have a different split but winning one, losing the
other. trump tweeted we can't let this happen. we should march on washington and stop this travesty. our nation is totally divided. well-being when it didn't go his way. is he now being hypocritical. >> no, i think in the same right he dead praise them. and i do think he's frustrated though, basil: i understand you are saying he's made all of these divisive statements. most were over simplified. nuances takenen out. and i saw several hillary clinton commercials that did this. >> there are young people out there, young hispanic people wearing mexican flags around them worrying they have to leave this country. there are things like that in a lot of different constituencies and a lot of different minority groups and the people out there there is no evidence anyone is
being paid do this. and there is no evidence donald trump was being more insincere wlast night. and this was the first test of donald trump reacting to something that happened to him. and the tweet he had last night -- >> i think a lot of people in the media and a lot of democrats thought that donald trump was going to have to own his words and his actions during the election and be held accountable. and a lot of people now feel that didn't happen. but now he is president elect of the united states. and i think that first tweet, which was very much old trump. that sort of like taking a shot, trying to undermine it. you know, it was divided. it was not united. and he comes out and i think what's interesting right now is if we start sort of stepping back. and i don't want to give him too much credit yet. but if you start stepping back. you look at the tweet. you look at how he's talked about hillary clinton, bill clinton. >> he's trying to correct. >> i think -- just. president obama. obamacare. i mean he could be leading with
one thing. and there is going a different direction. he always said in the interviews i did with him. what people keep saying i need to be presidential or i can't be presidential. he said i'm making a choice here. i could do that. but this is what's going to get me elected. and now i think you are seeing presidential. >> we're going to talk about this next. hillary clinton's campaign out now saying who is to blame. wait till you actually see what they are saying. and what muslim americans are saying about donald trump's victory. >> it is inexcusable the things he said. it was very shocking to hear. is very scary as well. >> and we're continuing to watch several anti-trump protests right now growing across the country on this friday evening. we'll be right back. it was an idea. a wild "what-if." so scientists went to work. they examined 87 different protein structures

gary tuckman is with me. what are you seeing? >> reporter: here in the city of atlanta there are hundreds of people in the streets. and very angry people. people akry about a lot of things. angry donald trump won the election. angry of the people with the democratic establishment. and also angry specifically about the tweet they saw from donald trump last night that disparaged them that said they were professional protesters and said that it wasn't very fair. and they feel that donald trump saying that is ridiculous is what most people here say. how come you're here today protesting? >> i just washed outside my door and saw everybody protesting and decided to join. >> did you vote for hillary clinton for president. >> yes i did actually. >> and your friend also over here. did you vote also? >> yeah i did. >> a lot of people i talked to before did not vote. a lot of bernie sanders supporters once he was out decided they were not going participate in the election and others saying they were not
going to vote in anybody. they don't believe in what this government stands for. and this rally is expected to last for a couple hours longer. hundreds of people in line very angry. but the most important thing right now, very peaceful. >> very peaceful busy as you heard gary say. sanders got out. they didn't vote. the turnout was low. a two decade low and that is part of the problem for hillary clinton. and also breaking tonight hillary clinton is about to appear at the campaign staff party. and also supposed to hold her first post election day call with supporters to explain what she thinks went wrong. already her campaign is pointing fingers -- excuse me. because it's hard to think about this. blaming director comey and blaming the media for hostile coverage. jeff zeleny is "outfront" in error washington. what are you hearing? >> in a call with donors today.
they did blame this on the hostile media and also that the fbi's director's decision at the 11th hour helped contribute to her defeat her. i really pressed her advisors so say why is that and the college educated voters in the center were not sold on her necessarily. but the comey decision set them off against her entirely. so they blame his decision. but erin, we have to remember it was her decision to set that up private e-mail server back in 2009 that created this whole situation. >> and a lot of people also looking at in particular, there are a lot of places they are looking at, counties and demographics. but in particular at wisconsin, as a test case of the heart of the matter t core of really went wrong? >> no question. in the ten electoral votes in wisconsin, a state that's voted democratic in presidential races since 1984, one number that really sticks out to me are
millennials. 18-29-year-olds. she won that group by three percentage points. barack obama won it by 23 percentage points. and she did not visit madison wisconsin where the universities are or any of wisconsin in the general election here. and the fact she simply didn't fight for the state here. >> and more about that as we said the breaking news as she's getting ready to appear at a party for his campaign and also the first call with supporters tonight which is going to be crucial to hear what she wants to say. you spent a lot of time talking to voters around this country and you asked them some of these questions. and in particular we hear the campaign now blaming the media and the fbi director jim comey. you asked voters about jim comey. did that have an impact on them? >> no it was anecdotal when i asked them what is driving your vote? but also does that have an
impact on you? and they said no. that was sort of baked -- their vote was already baked in before that came out. they already knew where they were going whether it was for her or whether it was not for her. that was sort of part of their opinion of her. and that was reinforced, if you look at exit polls. i believe that 72% of the people had already made up their mind before that even happened. and you saw that when you talk to people. >> and basil, you know, you just heard selena, comey didn't seem to have an impact with voters she was speaking to in wisconsin. you heard jeff. and the campaign is saying this is director comey's fault and the media's fault. isn't it just their fault? >> well it may not have impacted the people that actually came out to vote but the comey decision may not have impacted turnout. talking 55% of voters turned out. particularly low. >> 20 year low in turnout --
>> i wouldn't go so far as to say that. but what i say is i think the e-mails went into a narrative that already existed about her. i do think this was baked in. but i do think there were issues that would address some of the economic concerns that voters had a that just didn't get enough light. e-mails on her side and donald trump faux pass on his side and language on his. >> what clinton advisors were also saying to me today is they had seen trend lines change after comey and that while things had stabilized after a few days they were worried that the the enthusiasm the energy level was low. i remember covering clinton/sanders all through the winter and writing stories about the obvious kind of enthusiasm and energy of bernie sanders supporters and the clinton campaign insisting that there was the same kind of energy if not greater enthusiasm there. there may been among hard core clinton supporters but there
were a whole lot of people who may be normally might vote democrat or be open to a democratic nominee who were not open to her. they just weren't there. >> i was in scranton over the weekend trying to see what the actually turnout looked like. and i went to hillary clinton's headquarters in downtown skrant a scranton and it was empty. and donald trump's and it was packed with people there. and the same thing. it was damped down. committee may have played a role but i think it was a pre existing problem back to the primaries and before. >> i will say had donald trump lost he would be blaming director comey and the media. >> and that's just it -- >> >>[chatter]. >> comey did his job. they proved that. people have been way too hard on him for what happened. i wants to say that up front. i've been wanting to say that
for a while. he did what he did. and if hillary clinton wants to blame anyone, it is the first decision she made to start the private server. and quickly to point out the numbers were striking t and that signals to me there were a whole lot of bernie sanders supporters among millennials and when they saw the dennnc e-mails that showedse dnc was in the tank for bernie sanders. >> -- not that specifically as a motive but when bernie sanders got out they were out. and it happened early on. >> you could have that great operation but simply -- >> -- candidate and can you motivate, ib inspire. >> -- a little defensive. but the idea that the news media went easy on donald trump and hard on hillary clinton. i know she's not totally asserting that. but there were weeks on ends where the "new york times" had very tough stories about donald trump. and the washington post did
fantastic work as well on donald trump. and, you know, clinton got tough coverage and scrutiny as well. but, you know -- >> -- woman after only for a while. no question. >> -- in october. >> yes right -- >> before the election. >> -- weeks before. i want to play again donald trump talking for the first time about that call with hillary clinton when they first spoke after this happened, when of course he was shocked and euphoric and she was obviously heartbroken. here is what he said to leslie stall. >> tell us about that phone call. >> hillary called and it was a lovely call. it was a tough call for her. i can imagine. tougher for her than it would have been for me and it would have been for me it would have been very difficult. she couldn't have been nicer. she just said congratulations donald, well done. and i that i had i want to thank you very much, you were a great competitor. she's very strong and very
smart. >> what about bill clinton? >> he called the next day. >> really -- >> -- actually called last night. >> what did he say? >> couldn't have been more gracious. he said tfrs it was an amazing . one of the most amazing he'd ever seen. >> he said that. >> he was very, very -- really very nice. >> you know, you said that you might call president obama for advice. would you think of calling president clinton for advice? zblel we >> well he's a very talented guy. both of them. this is a very talented family. i would certainly think about that. >> this shows the world by the way the strangeness of america. in most countries you have an election like this and then you go purne purge the court system or have a coupe and fire half the news media. and here we have an election and yet now people can talk so positively and shake hands and move on. >> i think there is a difference
between the clinton shaking hands with the trumps and america shaking hands with trump. hillary clinton is not very popular. donald trump is not very popular. getting hillary clinton on board is not going to do everything he needs to do get to get the country united. >> and one of the things donald trump needs do is not just talk about the protesters he's seeing out there now but also look in his backyard. a lot of the folks that were at his own rallies. a lot of the people that we're seeing, you know, a certain type of graffiti and messages being put out there that are anti-semitic and so on. he now has a role in tamping that down. i think he -- >> to that end, a president can either unite a country after an election, or they can try to claim a mandate and i'm going to do it my way. and at least right now you are hearing more unity. >> we're going talk about some of the issues and promises he made that propelled his campaign. some of which were perceived as very divisive. the promise of wall. will it actually happen.

tonight video going viral of middle school students chanting "build the wall" of trump's victory. now, trump didn't mention the wall in his victory speech but of course as an issue he repeatedly touted on the campaign trail. what would the wall look like? ed lavandera has tonight's big number. >> we're going to build the great wall. >> the wall just got ten feet higher. >> the border between united states and mexico stretches nearly 2,000 mile, nearly 700 miles of it is already covered with some form of border wall or steel fencing but donald trump wants more. >> on day one we will begin working on am impenetrable, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall. >> well of course it can be
cone. >> reporter: professor deer is an expert in city and regional planning and the author of the book "why walls don't work." >> a large structure which might be 25 feet high which would be very intensive in terms of resources and money. >> cnn has hired a number of engineers and architects about what would be most feasible. the wall requiring, 339 million feet of concrete. the panels held together by 5 billion pounds of reinforced steel with an estimated cost of at least $10.5 billion and possibly much more. trump supporters say they can't wait to see the beginning of the border wall construction. >> that wall will get billionth and mexico is going to pay. i think he'll try to build a wall and i think he's trial to secure our boarders. >> if people want to come into
the country they should do it legally. >> but in mexico the idea of a wall is often shrugged off as a bump in the road north. jose fernandez says he's illegal crossed many times. he says a wall might make crossing over a little harder but immigrants like him would always find a way to find work to feed their families. and this man has crossed the boarder 25 times when he was just 16 to start. to work farm fields all over the u.s. he says keeping people like him out of the u.s. would only hurt the u.s. >> he says if you try to remove all of the mexicans from the united states donald trump will realize what a huge mistake that and is how much the u.s. economy depends on mexican immigrants. and erin, this week, mexican, top government officials here in mexico have reiterated once again that they would refuse to pay for that wall and any
attempts by the united states to force them to pay the wall in any kind of way would be met with a great deal of resistance. so that is something that will continue to play out here in the months ahead as the mexican government tries to figure how exactly all of this is going to play out. but here on this friday night all of these deep issues far off the minds of many people in mexico city, as the mexican national soccer team and u.s. national soccer team set to kick you have later tonight in clems columbus, ohio. >> pretty stunning statistics though. 339 million cubics feet of steel for that wall. and "outfront" now our panel. investor, i want to ask you clearly people supported donald trump expect the wall. it was a core part of every speech and rally at one point when he was frustrated something he said that wall just got even hire. he didn't mention it though
during his victory speech early wednesday morning. is the wall do you think still going to happen? >> i imagine some kind of new construction will take place. but, you know, there are very secure constructions that are -- wall and a lot more fence that if done right can be effective wi willy protected. as the >> but i think they should do what makes sense economically and in terms of making protection work, and probably have a bit of wall, maybe more than a bit. just proceed with it to get it done. >> and, ambassador woolsey, we know trump insisted mexico is going to pay for the wall. newt gingrich said on a conference call, let me quote what he said to you. he will spend a lot of time controlling the border. he may not spend much time
getting mexico to pay for it but it was a great campaign device. now i'm curious we hear trump making promises to repeal obamacare and now he is saying parts he likes, extreme vetting for people coming to the united states from terror sites, bringing back water boarding. do you think those things are real and going to happen, or do you think they were campaign devices and not things that a president trump will push through? >> probably several of them, and the wall may be a good example, are advocacy of a general direction. if you get down to the details of who pays for it, you may end up not being able to get it all paid for by someone else and need to compromise. you may need to compromise on the number of those things, but that's the way governments are and that's the way they are with their neighbors. so i don't think we ought to fall on our swords about the difference between a wall and a fence. maybe this will be cheaper because it is mainly fence, but it is a good fence. i wouldn't have any problem with
that myself, frankly. >> so donald trump obviously among other things that he said he was going to redo was the nuclear deal with iran, right? he repeatedly said he thinks it is horrible, but he said he wouldn't necessarily rip it up on day one, he would renegotiate. here are some of the things he said about the iran deal. >> it is tough to do when you say rip up a deal. i would police that contract so tough that they don't have a chance, as bad as the contract is, i will be so tough on that contract. >> we have a horrible contract but we do have a contract. >> my number one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with iran. >> that's something, ambassador, he seems to much mean, his number one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal as he sees it. the iran cain president this week said no country can change the terms of the deal. what is donald trump going to do? >> i think this is one where i'm completely on president-elect trump's side. this is, i think, the worst international agreement the united states has ever signed.
it is not ever really been concluded because there are parts of it that the iranians will not share with anybody else, and it does not start to take effect under its own terms, the terms of the statute that got it started a year and a half ago, until all aspects are disseminated. and it is hideously inadequate as far as verification goes. erin, if you and i were u.n. inspectors and we decided we wanted to go 100 miles north from our camp in order to look at a facility in iran because we thought there might be something radioactive in the soil there from a test or something, all of the iranians need to do is say as we take our first step across the border, oh, actually we've decided to designate this as a military facility so you can't go there anymore. >> right. >> it is full of stuff like that. it is a ridiculous, ridiculous agreement. >> all right. ambassador, thank you very much. i appreciate your time tonight.
next, breaking news, live pictures of the anti-trump protest growing at this hour on a friday evening, that's miami you are looking at on your screen right now. plus, the many american muslims who say that trump fuels racism, but amid potential muslim ban many still giving him a chance. >> we can't stand against him, you know. we have to support him and wish for the best. mmmm. incredible. can i try? she doesn't have heartburn. new alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies. enjoy the relief. you foundi'm a robot! cars.com rawr yeti and found a place to service it, too. ♪ jingle bells now when you're ready, you can sell your old car and find your new one all on cars.com you know us for shopping, and now we're there for every turn. cars.com advil is not only strong it's gentle on your body too. no wonder doctors and patients have trusted advil...

like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
briefly disappearing. this after the rnc chairman reince priebus told us questions from the media about it are stirring the pot. >> listen, erin, he said repeatedly that there's no religion -- religious test. for you all to be coming back and relitigating something that is now -- that's five months old is what the problem is in our country. if the media is so interested in america coming together, then they ought to do their job and quit stirring the pot where it shouldn't belong. so are muslims in this country afraid of a president trump? jessica schneider is out front. >> in michigan where muslims make up a large portion of the population -- there is widespread uncertainty about a trump presidency. >> reporter: are you angry at the things he said throughout this election? >> definitely. i mean you've got to be kind to
people. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shut down of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: trump made that promise last december, but dialled it back by the time his party's convention convened in cleveland. >> we must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place. the muslim ban is something that in some form has morphed into an extreme vetting. >> reporter: but tonight his statement calling for a total and complete shut down of muslims entering the united states is still on his official website. for some muslims and many others, the rhetoric crossing the line. >> i don't know how he got elected, i'll be honest. >> reporter: her parents immigrated to deer born, michigan from lebanon. she works on immigration issues at detroit's mayor's office and says trump's divisive receipt or
immade muslim lives more difficult. >> i'm definitely angry. i don't want to say i'm fearful because i still have faith in the democratic process. >> it is inexcusable the things that he said. it was shocking to hear, it was very scary as well. >> reporter: tanya shatila runs this middle eastern bakery. she is still hopeful. >> we can't stand against him, you know. we have to support him and wish for the best. so hopefully he will instill that unity that he's been saying in his speeches ever since he won. >> reporter: nadal tamir has a much different view. >> and mr. trump should be held as an image of the american dream. >> reporter: tamir voted for trump and convinced his family to vote for him, too. as a small business owner he sees trump as a role model and believes he speaks from strength. he wants his fellow muslims to see it the same way. what do you say when they have shock or anger? >> i say to them the country is going to be great.
>> reporter: so many emotions out here, but one man who is leaving friday prayers told me that his imam expressed faith in a higher prayer, and many of the people out here, erin, that i spoke with expressed faith in the good people of this country. erin. >> thank you so much. thank you all so much for joining us. anderson is next. >> thank you very much for joining us as we end a week ha has changed american political history. president-elect trump is getting started, announcing his transition team and sitting down for first interviews as president-elect. that title is not sitting well with many people around the country who for the third straight night have taken to the streets. you see them there, miami, atlanta. you are looking at aerial shots in atlanta on the right-hand side of your screen. we will keep our eyes throughout the next two hours on streets in a number of cities. as we do, a center poofs donald trump's campaign of course was repealing obamacare. now in two interviews today he
