1:15 pm
nominee as a woman to be president and last night, won the popular vote of america. that is an amazing accomplishment. it is an amazing accomplishment. i am proud of hillary clinton because she has held fast to dreams. age,as inspired at a young an epiphany that if families and children did well, that is the best barometer for whether society does well and in everything she has done, she is focused on that. we know she would have made history as president in one sense, but we have never had a
1:16 pm
president whose entire family -- entire career was made about the empowerment of children and families. i was excited to have her there and make history as the first women -- first woman president. i am proud of her because she has made such a wonderful team. there is a beautiful and comical parable in the new testament about a vineyard owners who hires people to work and says i will pay you this for a full day, then he hires people at noon and says i will pay you the same thing for a half day and those who started earlier the day say hold on, we don't like that you are treating everybody who came late just as well as us. here is what i have come to know so well about hillary clinton. the team that she has assembled over the years are people that are so deeply loyal to her because she is so loyal to them,
1:17 pm
it is inspiring. i have seen that same degree of loyalty and compassion and sensitivity extended to the most recent folks who joined the team , the folks you came to the vineyard with just one hour to go. for loyalty and compassion to people, if they are with you, they are with you and that is remarkable. i am proud of her because she loves this country. nobody had to wonder about hillary clinton, whether she would accept an outcome of an election and our democracy, nobody had to ask. nobody had to doubt. she knows our country for what it is. she knows the system that we have. she is deeply in love with it and she accepts it.
1:18 pm
she has been in bottles before where if it did not go her way, she accepted it and woke up the next day and that old the dreams she has held fast to. i want to thank hillary clinton for asking us to join this wild ride. about a week before, she asked if i would be her running mate. i went up to westchester and sat down with hillary and bill for about three hours of conversation to try to determine whether the wood -- whether we would be the right people to be on the ticket. when we got in the car back to the airport, i said to my wife, i don't know if we will be on this ticket, but we will remember that three hours for the rest of our life. we will remember 15 days that we have had with this fantastic couple of public servants for the rest of our life. hillary and i know the wisdom
1:19 pm
and words of william faulkner. he said they killed us, but they have not whooped us, yet. because we know, we know that the work remains. that the dreams of empowering families and children remain and in that work, that important work that we have to do as a nation, it is so comforting even at a tough time, to know that hillary clinton is somebody, until her very last breath, is going to be battling for the values that make this nation great. now, please join me in welcoming secretary hillary clinton.

peace, the fight against terrorism, the situation in the middle east, economic situations , and preserving the planet. on all of these topics, i will very soon start discussions with , which. administration will come into office on the 20th of january. i will do it with sincerity and openness because the position expressed by mr. donald trump must be confronted with the interest that we share with the u.s., and our common history will help us engage in that discussion. france will also continue on the way of transatlantic cooperation , without concessions, and in
1:44 pm
the spirit of independence. context after this u.s. election demands that france should be strong, stronger than ever, and take responsibility, as eyes i have done since 2012. it also demands that the european union should be united, strong, and able to express its opinion everywhere around the world, thinking about the fight against poverty, the fight against social exclusion, and of course, after any election, you need to draw lessons. the u.s. election has a ripple effect on the rest of the world. this election comes after a series of other elections. we need to take a clear, sober look at this specific election, and again, in this case, try to

p.m. turnbull: on behalf of the us to, i offer my congratulations to donald trump on his historic victory, and offer might best wishes to secretary hillary clinton, who has fought a long and hard-fought campaign. let me say that i understand that australians have been confronted with the intensity of the political battle in the united states. president-elect trump himself described it as being at times and nasty campaign, and it was certainly by our standards are very bitterone -- a one. but you see already the way he has reached out to bring americans together come and the americans do fight the political contests hard. this great nation of the united states has the capacity to come together, and it will, behind the leaders, behind the
1:47 pm
president that they have chosen. now we have no stronger relationship, whether it is on the battlefield or in commerce, then we have with the united states. they are great and powerful nation, they are great and powerful friend. and our relationship with united states is built on millions of australians and americans who have been working together, fighting together, serving together, for over a century. we have stood together in so many conflicts side-by-side. americans understand that they have no stronger ally, no better friend, then australia. in the enduring national interests of our 2 countries is such that our relationship will continue to be strong. we will continue to work
1:48 pm
together, as we have done, with many presidents in years past, to take on the challenges of our time. whether it is the challenges of global terrorism, whether it is the challenges of ensuring that we maintain the stability of our economic order, whether it is the challenge of ensuring that we maintain the stability in our region, which is underpinned by the strength of the united states, which has been the foundation of the rules-based order in our part of the world that has seen the most extraordinary transformation in living standards in human history. so i have great confidence that all of our engagement will continue to be strong and intimate, filled with the trust and confidence that is characterized it for so many years. now, the obama administration will continue until january 20.
1:49 pm
i want to acknowledge the great leadership of president obama, vice president biden, and the holy administration has given during their term in office. president obama has guided the united states and let the world -- led the world through many challenges, challenges of the global financial crisis, dealing with the challenges of terrorism, dealing with the challenges of -- we face in the middle east, where our servicemen and women are fighting side-by-side with their american comrades. so this is an historic moment. it has been a long campaign. it is one that australians have , withsed with awe consternation, indeed, from time to time. but let me reassure all us australians all that the ties that bind australia and the united states

1:52 pm
elections. we have heard his electoral slogans when he was still a candidate of the presidency. spoke about restoring relations between russia and the united states. we understand that the way to that will be difficult, taking into account the current state of degradation of relations between the u.s. and russia. and as i have repeatedly said, that is not our fault that the russian-american relations are in that poor state.
1:53 pm
russia is ready and wants to restore the full-fledged relations with the united states. i repeat, we understand that this will be a difficult way, but we are ready to play our part in it. and do everything to return the russian-american relations to the stable and sustainable development track. serve the well-being of both russian and american people. and have a positive effect on the general climate for global
1:54 pm
affairs, taking into account the special responsibility of russia and the u.s. to sustain global stability and security. >> some of the reaction from foreign leaders early this morning to donald trump's win in the u.s. presidential election. early this morning, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu tweeting this outcome, saying "i congratulate donald trump on being elected the 45th president of the united states of america." abc,reported by president-elect donald trump invited netanyahu to meet him in the u.s. at his earliest convenience. we are going to take you live to the capitol for the second of two congressional briefings we have today. paul ryan, the house speaker and mitch mcconnell, the majority leader, will be speaking to reporters. we will have that live when he gets underway get we want to let you know that not only did paul
1:55 pm
ryan speak to reporters -- and we will show that later in our coverage this afternoon -- he held a conference call with members that some of the capitol hill reporters were able to listen in on. "house gopere, leadership elections still on track for next week, ryan says in a postelection gop conference call. gopers conclude conference call. ryan walks them through the upcoming schedule of the huge potential to work with donald trump." we will take you live to capitol hill when i gets underway. until then, more international reaction and coverage of rt. election has ended in extreme disappointment for establishment candidate hillary clinton. the clinton supporters, they have been crushed by the news. don't believe me?
1:56 pm
just look at our pictures here. wow, some of said -- not just biting nails, but crying by supporters of democratic head quarters, many looking absolutely devastated. stark contrast to the trump supporters. they really do not think this was going to happen. probably weren't expecting the win. what a bonus for them. also, what a ship there was in the electoral cap. -- leading into election day, the polls were confident hillary clinton was going to win. state that way until the votes were counted. then the picture became more of is that things weren't going well. and that point is when donald trump took over as the favored. ultimately, he was going to be the new president. and our's bring correspondent, in new york in the wake of what has been an
1:57 pm
astonishing result. the big apple having to take a big bite out of a shocking piece of news. how have they responded? >> this was certainly not the expected result. it appears that donald trump, who campaigned as the antiestablishment candidate, has defeated hillary clinton, who is largely perceived by the american public as the kind of incarnation of the political establishment. now, we went out on the streets of new york and we spoke to people. it is quite interesting -- when we interacted with people, what when donaldp, trump first announced for president, this is how he was perceived. this is how the mainstream -- this is what the mainstream media said about donald trump's early campaign. >> donald trump doesn't make sense. president obama: i continue to believe that donald trump will not be president. >> this guy is a complete clown. >> dangerous clown. president obama: he has the
1:58 pm
appropriate amount of coverage nesstting the serious of his candidacy. >> lets for member that every poll in the main stream press predicted that hillary clinton would be the winner of the election. it was constantly stated over the last couple weeks in the mainstream press that hillary clinton was leading in the polls . it was going to be a close race but hillary clinton was projected to win. that projection from the mainstream press, all of the major cable news networks, almost every mainstream newspaper, that seems to have been incorrect. donald trump will be the next president of the united states, and millions of people and especially in rust belt states like ohio, pennsylvania, michigan, they turned out and voted for donald trump. tonight when we were in times square in the center of midtown manhattan, we decided to ask people what they made and what they thought of the fact that it seems like all the projections from the mainstream press got it
1:59 pm
completely wrong. here is what they had to say to us. >> trust the mainstream media? >> no, i don't. >> they really got this completely wrong. >> yeah, they definitely really do. they need to get it together, they need to get it in order. >> i mean, the major media was telling us that clinton had it, they were wrong. do you trust the media? >> that's what i'm saying, i don't. this is huge -- i haven't for a long time, but this is a huge indicator that something is inherently flawed in that system. if you watch msnbc or you watch abc or fox, doesn't matter. what they are playing right now, this game for the last two hours, is to give you online. he won florida hours ago, but they keep doing projections so you watch. this thing is over. now, as donald trump prepares to enter the white house and take in activation in january
2:00 pm
just take a inauguration in january, u.s. president barack obama will soon be leaving the white house. what will be barack obama's legacy? how will he be remembered as the commander-in-chief of the united states? earlier we went out on the streets of new york and asked what the presidency met to them. we asked about the promises made . we heard a lot of interesting things about when we talk to people about barack obama and the legacy. >> u.s. barack obama set to leave in january. remember how excited and hope all people were eight years ago jacob the world was hopeful as well.
2:01 pm
cairo to seek to a new beginning. >> he even won the nobel peace prize. >> i am the commander in chief nation, in the, midst of two wars. >> intervening in seven different countries. can americans even name them yet >> iran is one of them. >> iraq may be. >> afghanistan. .. i think that is about it. >> even some of the people the
2:02 pm
u.s. is supporting in the fight against terrorism are not fond stripes.ars and >> taking a live to capitol hill. mitch mcconnell, majority leader of the senate. before we get started, one matter. had fitted -- the untilunate distinction yesterday of being the only with an the south democratic legislative body. that changed dramatically as the republicans in the bluegrass state took the by defeating 17 democrat. went from 47 to 64.
2:03 pm
long since the cubs won the world series. 95 years of continuous control.c that only added a little more to my evening. senator schumer called and offered cooperation. i said that is certainly what i intended to do. not only in the lame-duck, but beginning next year. also, i have had a chance to talk to the president and vice president of whom called, to president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence, all today. not only offering congratulations where a perp.,
2:04 pm
but wrapping up business to share. i am really proud of the races we won. know, we have a lot of exposure. in a day when the american clearly were expressing change in the vote for onlydent, it is noteworthy one or two senate incumbents defeated. so i think an appropriate way to look at the senate races, 18 of the candidates and other races. somewhat a mixed picture. of course many of our members
2:05 pm
have a partisan accomplishments to run on. examples from the previous congress where the senator from alaska have never been allowed amendment. on a bill. we opened it up and give people ideas.ortunity to offer want to particularly congratulate president-elect trump. clearly an indication the american people would like to new.omething and know the speaker shares my view we would like to see the go in a different election.
2:06 pm
he will have an opportunity to fill the supreme court seats. in february i said itthis year that i thought best the american people decide appointment to the supreme court. it had been 80 years since a the vacancy.ed you had to go back to 1888 to find the last time a vacancy in the presidential year was confirmed by the president.rty of the the american people have spoken, us president trump will send a nominee soon early next year. with that, let me just throw it open. there has never been an outright filibuster for a
2:07 pm
is different. why would you expect democrats to handle any nomination differently, and if they do, that to return the favor? >> i will not address what might happen. what we do know is the new will fill the vacancy. i expected to be handled in the same way these are typically handled, and i would not anticipate any particular strategy the democrats might employ to defeat it. >> did you bring that up with today? schumer >> know i did not. we will be working with the new
2:08 pm
president on priorities. talked about tax reform. i think this is really important. servicearly part of my in the senate we did comprehensive tax reform back in 1986. president reagan agreed it would be revenue neutral to the government and to the maximum extent possible chine to make by lowering the rates as much as possible. know mr. obama had the conversation as well. the current president was not interested in making it revenue neutral for the government. we want to make america truly ought tove, the goal be when revenue is produced by preferences,on of use that to bow down the race.
2:09 pm
therefore creating the opportunity for an version and the like. i have not had a chance to talk yet.e president about this the corporations are having a but most ofpeting, the businesses that are not corporations. agreement onve an , and backe advocating in those days, there were plenty it.emocrats on board for bill bradley was key in it. hopefully we will make progress for the country. >> a very favorable map. it is very likely you will have the majority through until your in 2020.ion
2:10 pm
argues earning to think about what kind of legacy you will have? >> no. we have not even started the next congress yet. there will be plenty of times -- time to talk about legacy. >> do you want to stay until trump take the work or are you ?hinking an omnibus >> really have not talked about that. there are two priorities for the lame-duck. if you raise, how will you fund government? second, the 21st century cures bill. interested inis the medicine part of it. i am interested in the
2:11 pm
regenerative minister -- medicine part of it. i would like to see us finish that important new measure this year. i talked about those matters this morning. >> [inaudible] harming the relationship with hispanics as president goldwater did. share those concerns? number two, do you idea tocentral policy build a wall on the border with mexico? >> i will not go back and read letter -- relitigate events of the past. we have a new president, and i would like to see him get off on positive start. i do not think we should relitigate to build a wall on the border with
2:12 pm
the debates we had internally and with the democrats over the past year. we will be talking to the president about his agenda. border security is important. achieving border security is something that i think should be list.n the >> of personal preference on the list go >> i want to achieve in the way that is most effective. results the debates we had internally and with the democrats over the past triggerd , and what on coal does that mean for cold jobs in coal is? >> the war on legislation.of any look at all of the unilateral action. regulatory overreach of one kind or another. the coal industry is a perfect that.e of
2:13 pm
see how much he can undo the president action the took all by himself, that would not require us. so i think in looking out why the country has had such slow growth, the most trip and recovery after a deep recession ii,e world war overregulation is a principal confident i am pretty the president did not have one year of 3% growth. you saw a whole lot of people who voted for the new president -- the lackustrated growth is the reason for lack of opportunity and jobs. we have to get this economy going again. much of that can be done by the president alone, because much of the problem has been created by this president. we will work with the administration to make
2:14 pm
