6:02 am
their candidate win but trump calling on america to come together. >> i just received a call from secretary clinton. [cheers and applause] >> she congratulated us. it's about us on our victory and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. we have to get together. as i've said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women who love their country and want a better brighter future for themselves and for their family. [cheers and applause] >> it's a movement comprised of
6:03 am
americans from all races, religions, backgrounds and beliefs who want and expect our government to serve the people and serve the people it will. and i can only say that while the campaign is over, the work on this movement is really now just beginning. martha: our work is just beginning said donald trump, the president elect. fox team coverage byron and steve hayes to go over all the night's happening. first we go to senior national correspondent john roberts who has been on the road with donald trump's campaign since the very beginning. good morning to you, john. john: mar though, good morning to you and the president elect living living in trump tower just across 67th street. security around it and the sidewalk is closed. we don't know how long that's going to be in place because there are some businesses that would like to open up today. so we will see how that progresses throughout the day.
6:04 am
you know, martha, there were so many people in this country who did not see this coming. they either didn't know or didn't want to know what was going on across the country, but when you go to all the big trump rallies and you see all those people standing in line for hours and jamming all of those venues, whether it be a fairgrounds or a horse barn or a big arenas, you had to know that something was going on. in the early going, pundits were dismissing, people wanting to see the spectacle. that resulted in that early morning win for donald trump and obviously one that pleased a lot of his most supporters. listen to what some of them said about 3:00 o'clock this morning. >> awesome night. historic night for america. i feel like it's a second revolution. >> it's time to turn the page and move on in american history. >> the solid majority rose up tonight all through grassroots
6:05 am
america elected this man president of the united states. john: one of the first official orders of business looks like it's going to be a meeting in washington tomorrow with president obama and martha, to be a fly on the wall in that meeting because if you recall in recent weeks the two of them had been saying pretty nasty things about each other. martha: yeah, and the president talked so much about how electing hillary clinton was central to preserving the legacy of what president obama began and it's something that we are going to talk about quite a bit. john, as a reporter, you have spent so much time on the road watching this campaign from the early days on, what is your take, how do you boil it down in terms of how he won? >> well, you know, you look at the exit polls and those numbers will tell you who voted and what issues they were voting on and i think they missed the core element of all of this and what i got from being across the country with donald trump talking to so many people at so
6:06 am
many rallies and regions and cities across the countries there was a collective sense of anxiety among so many people in america that they are worried about their future, they are word about the direction their country is going and perhaps most importantly they're worried that their children's lives are not going to be as good as theirs and they looked at the status quo, the political establishment and they didn't see anything out there and then donald trump comes along and not only gives voice to those anxieties but says, i'm going to do something about them and his campaign manager, kellyanne conway, they like the fact that he's a billionaire, he's not behold to go any special interest. he may be the one that can change. >> the man ran and sacrificed to do this for the country. he didn't need the money and the fame and the power and the status and attract i have to people because for him he can literally, literally appetite for outsider who goes to washington owing nobody
6:07 am
anything. john: i was talking to a colleague of mine from another network a couple of minutes ago and a wall street correction. this is a political correction that you know you had the political bubble, martha and it burst in the early hours of this morning, martha. martha: wall street correction along with it. john, thank you very much. bill: i want to bring washington correspondent, steve hayes and neither men has slept. >> not at all. bill: mitt romney who called donald trump a fraud and a phoney repeatedly just tweeted best wishes for our elected president, make his victory speech be his guiding and preserving his aim. mike murphy, he's never been wrong in his life. how did so many people miss it? >> well, i think -- i'm one of them. i didn't see this coming. you asked us yesterday. i thought she would win with
6:08 am
300ish electoral votes. obviously that didn't happen. i think that's the right tone that you are hearing from somebody like mitt romney, it's the way that i feel. i hope that i'm as wrong what kind of president donald trump will be as i was about electoral prospects. fundamentally this was a changed election and i woke in the middle of the night in my two hours of sleep last night and was thinking about the past decade of american politics and you think about how many change electioned we've had. 2006 was a changed election, 2008 was a changed election, 2010 was a changed election, 2014 was a changed election and this election is basically has been saying, we have been telling you all along that we want a change. we were serious about the change. that's the message to take from this election. martha: we talked about an article that's called the end of alootism and it mentioned a billboard that was right between the border of ohio and pennsylvania and i don't know who bought the space on the billboard but it said, you've had your chance, now it's our
6:09 am
turn. >> that's what trump said speech after speech in rallies. he was saying, look, they don't care about you, they're getting rich, their kids go to great schools, their lives are great and you're just falling behind every single day. and it wasn't just change, it was that, but it was, there was actual specific issues. i'm going to bring our jobs back. this is it for obamacare, we are going to build a wall and we are going to control immigration into this country and we are not going to engage in foreign misadventures we saw in bush administration and accused hillary clinton of taking part in so it was a one big desire for change and two, it was specific things that he was
6:10 am
saying he would do if elected. bill: we are going to see extraordinary things in the next couple of hours, we are going to see hillary clinton which had gone to the convention center on the west side of manhattan and her intention was to stand beneath a glass ceiling and declare victory and she never showed and we are going to show that image of that later today. we will hear from her in an hour and 15 minutes. one thing -- and barack obama will speak this morning as well. we don't have a time on that yet. standby on that. one thing trump said last night, to be historic we have to do a great job, he has intention now going forward and if you listen to kellyanne conway today, he wants to do a lot of things quickly. where does he start with the republican senator and a republican house?
6:11 am
>> yeah, we've learned over the past 20 years that new presidents have to do things quickly or they don't get things done so he's right to focus on that. i mean, certainly if you're picking on what byron said you would think things he would focus on is immigration, however, the exit polling suggests that the american people were necessarily with them on some of the specifics of his immigration plan. 70% of the american public said we don't want to deport people who are here i legally, we prefer to provide them path to legal status, 25% said they we wanted to deport them. i would think immigration would be one of the things because it was so central to the argument that he was making, certainly obamacare. i do think this was in some ways referendum not just on obamacare but excesses of obama, barack obama's activist government and i would think there would be great enthusiasm. that's one place where republicans will agree. republicans don't always agree on immigration but they certainly agree on obamacare. martha: it's hard to
6:12 am
overestimate the impact on president obama's legacy from this. you look at the iran deal which donald trump has spoken about quite a bit, you look at obamacare, you look at -- you could sense that in president obama when he was on the campaign trail in north carolina the other day. you better vote for her because that would cement my legacy. >> i'm sure she's stunned like other members of the political establishment. there's two things here, one, the president has done a lot of what he has done through executive action -- martha: which can be easily undone. >> donald trump has mentalled to wipe that clean on the first day. and there's the stuff that requires congress and trump has a republican house, a republican senate, remember, the republicans in the senate are congratulating themselves for not confirming merrick garland because donald trump -- this is one of the things he's been most
6:13 am
specifiche gave a list of judgee all viewed as real a list conservative judges, most conservatives would be happy with them for the supreme court. so remember when obama went to the congressional black caucus, i would take it as a personal insult if you don't go out there and vote for me. bill: a few days ago. byron thanks to you and steven hayes. a lot more to get to. martha: a lot, more indeed. at the bottom of the hour hillary clinton will make first remarks. it was quite stunning when john podesta said, go home, everybody, you will hear from hear this morning, we will take you live as soon as that gets underway. bill: we will talk to senator rand paul live fresh off his reelection on how this thing goes next here. martha: donald trump's victory leaving the political establishment wondering what is
6:14 am
next, fair and balance debate on the future of both parties. democrats have to be wondering what is happening this morning, we will be right back.
6:15 am
6:16 am
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
6:17 am
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. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. see me. see me. see me. on my way. find clear skin... and a clearer path forward. for a different kind of medicine, ask your dermatologist about cosentyx. bill: six short hours ago donald trump promised to bring unity to washington and america, kentucky senator rand paul won reelection last night and goes back to congress now with a majority in the u.s. senate, sir, congratulations on your victory last night. what do you think of the
6:18 am
presidential level america is trying to say with donald trump's victory? >> well, you know, here in kentucky big part of big victory for trump but also we took over the state house for the first time in hundred years. to us it was response to the regulatory war on coal, also to the regulatory war on the family farm and so i think the same way west virginia became republican a few years ago, kentucky has become solid republican. it's in reaction to the regulations and the one thing i'm excited about in the trump presidency is i think in the very first weeks of the next congress the republican congress is going to repeal some regulations. i hope a half dozen regulations or more and we will get them onto trump's desk and i think he will sign them. bill: all right, that is your priority as you stated there. tax reform. obamacare, can you repeal and replace, is that possible now? >> you know, it's always difficult in the senate because
6:19 am
you to get to 60 votes but i think with the republican president it is a possibility. there's all kind of bad things about obamacare should end. the number wasn't thing on my list for obamacare is we should make it legal, okay, lawful to sell insurance again. right now it's illegal in our country to sell inexpensive insurance because president obama put mandates on all insurance which added to expense and that's why our cost is rising, at the very least we should legalize the sale of any kind of insurance that the marketplace will bare bill: okay, then you move to immigration, perhaps, perhaps there's tax reform in all of this. i think in the broad sense, however, senator, you're going to have a majority in the senate, a majority in the house and a republican in the white house and with that trifecta comes certain level of pressure to act. would you agree with that? >> absolutely. and you know, while i'm all for overall tax reform. i would like to act quickly on
6:20 am
some simple things. if we want american businesses to stay in america, we need to lowerrer corporate income tax, we the highest income tax in the world. if we want american companies to stay here, we should lower the tax on bringing the profit home. this is the act and i just start passing simple bills lowering tax rates. bill: what is your sense in the 30 second left here about the mood in the country moving into transition phase when you know you just came through a bruising national election and down right nasty at times? >> you know, one message is for the liberal elite that are in some media outlets and us, the people who live in country we are tired on the people on the left coast and the right coast sort of telling us what we
6:21 am
should believe in and really this was a big repudiation of the liberal elite and actually i'm wait to go see if they're all going to be getting on planes or private jets or moving this morning. i hope that will be fully reported in the news. bill: senator, thank you for your time. rand paul reelection there in the state of kentucky. martha: little over an hour from now hillary clinton is expected to speak this morning, this will be her first public statement since her loss last night which was a stunning turnaround from where things looked yesterday morning when she cast her vote in chappaqua. we will take you live as soon as that gets underway and florida was a key factor, was so again last night. donald trump pointing at kellyanne conway, chief architects of his win. you are going to hear more from her as well. how donald trump pulled a victory in the sunshine state, we will be right back for more
6:22 am
a dry mouth can cause cavities and bad breath. over 400 medications can cause a dry mouth. that's why there's biotene. biotene can provide soothing dry mouth relief. and it keeps your mouth refreshed too. remember while your medication is doing you good, a dry mouth isn't. biotene, for people who suffer from dry mouth symptoms.
6:23 am
6:24 am
6:25 am
6:26 am
he's not perfect but you get the same person, you know, you know what you get with trump. >> trump won 58 out of 78 counties. clinton won metro areas, miami,
6:27 am
ft. lauderdale and great margin lead over black voters as well as hispanic voters and trump was able to trump that with a surge in white rural voters around the in white rural voters around the thank you very much. bill: wall street's reaction, dow futures down sharply overnight with the market about to open three minutes from now. what will happen this morning, maria bartiromo is on deck, whether he talk to maria about all of that next here on america's business.
6:28 am
6:29 am
6:30 am
martha: we are waiting for hillary clinton, it'll be the first time that we hear from her since she got the news that she had lost the presidential election, the second round for her and we wait now for the dow jones industrial, maria bartiromo anchor of sunday morning futures and mornings
6:31 am
with maria on fox business. good to see you. how is the open going to look this morning? maria: we are going to have a down opening, obviously. you know that this was a surprise to a lot of people but i would would not be surprised to see this market trade up by the close because this is a very short-term knee-jerk reaction that we are seeing. the dow jones industrial average of 30 stocks are not open right now. we are looking at a gain, we will see how this market opens. there are a number of companies that are not opened yet but there is some worry because this was a surprise. wall street wants to see certainty. martha: they knew what they were going to get with four more years of hillary clinton. when the news settles in and you start thinking about lower corporate tax rates in america, less regulation on businesses which are things that donald trump could do, maybe they start to feel good about it. maria: if you look at economic plan and you have a 15% corporate tax rate, what's the
6:32 am
good thing that drive it is stock market? earnings, health of corporations. if a corporation is going to get 15% tax rate, that's going to be enormous thing for earning and also rollback of regulations, that's one of the key things in his plan. rolling back things like obamacare. take away obamacare from companies that have been strangled from regulation, you have a much better story in terms of earning. i do think it's an overreaction, knee-jerk reaction and we are going to see people look at it and say i want to buy this market. at the end of the day, we will see economic growth. martha: do you think he can convince companies to stay in the country? maria: absolutely. it's all about dollars and cents. one of the reasons they kept so much money overseas is they were getting double taxed and taxed on country where the money is as well as taxed in the u.s. if donald trump is doing incentives to get companies to get money back here, they absolutely will. it's about at the end of the day
6:33 am
shareholders and the health of their company. if it's going to make sense for the company, they are going to do it. i think he will. martha: small businesses try to keep payroll al small as possible, right? maria: small business has been desperate for trump economics because small business has been watching the weight of obamacare, watching the weight of the epa regulations, dodd-frank the financial services regulation, 2,000 new regulations have been adopted under president obama's leadership. martha: extraordinary. maria: companies are being strangled. martha: new regulations have been adopted under obama's leadership. donald trump has rules. if you're going to come up with a new law, regulation, you've got to eliminate another one. so i mean, he's really focused on rolling back regulations, that's going to be hugely positive. it's going to lead to economic growth. that's going to help stock markets. if we see a decline in markets, i will buying the market with both hands. i'm just saying, you're talking
6:34 am
about a good economic plan. martha: that's the kind of thing he gets. maria: poll after poll as we were reporting on this election over the last year showed us that the average guy and gal out there trust donald trump with the economy over hillary clinton because of his business smarts. so we will see, look, it's not a perfect plan, obviously it's going to add to the deficit and that's going to be something to get over but you also are going to see economic growth. if we were to double the economic growth, we are at 2%, martha. you're not going to get job growth with 2%. you see economic growth at 4%, you're talking an ability to actually offset. martha: a changing world with technology, but it's so fascinating. thank you so much, maria. maria: yeah. martha: thank you. bill: she said she was buying with both hands? maria: yeah. [laughter] bill: we will show you a little bit how the vote and why it went the way it did. i would focus on this part of
6:35 am
the country. this was donald trump's quest to go after the upper midwest in the states. i will show you about manufacturing job loss going back 25 years. in the state of pennsylvania which he won, they've lost 3,498,000 jobs, decline of 41% over that time period, over here in ohio, it was down 359,000 jobs, again, that message about, you know, where your jobs, your steel, your coal, they're going overseas, same message in michigan. they were down 26, almost 27% in that time period and i would finish off with wisconsin where their off about 51,000 in that period, almost 140% and that's what trump has been going after, you know, for the past two years. the other thing i would offer here in deep blue pennsylvania now, this is right here where
quote
6:36 am
joe biden grew up, you know, trump won the county. look what that was four years ago. this was an easy win for barack obama by 5 points and now you see the way this flips and you can go through this map and just kind of pick and choose wherever you wanting to, up here in north eastern ohio, i talked about this at 2:00 o'clock in the morning earlier today. this is deep blue america, at least it had been in 2012 and in 2008 and in 2004 and now the shift as it goes from democrat to republican in favor of donald trump. but it's really -- tells us a fascinating story, martha, as we dive into the numbers as to how he was led to victory. we have so many more examples too and we will pull you up a few next hour or two. martha: thank you so much. thanks, bill. how did the polls get it so
6:37 am
wrong? tom, good morning. >> good morning. martha: like many of us and many people out there i check real clear politics every morning and you go through the numbers of polls and there were two that were always protrump. you had the investor's business daily and la times and most pollsters said that those were just anomalies in this poll. how did this happen? >> actually everyone is run to go say that the polls were terribly, terribly wrong. that's not actually true. hillary clinton is going to win the popular vote. that's what the polls say. she was ahead 3.2%. that's a variation of 2.2 percent. that's actually less than what we had in 2012. martha: everybody who looked at the numbers over the course of weeks and ran it given the states and given how things were coming in and it looked like there was no way he was going to win. >> i think part of the reason
6:38 am
for that is because that's how people frame the race. again, look at a real clear politics final averages, final map was 272, 266 trump, trump was ahead in florida, north carolina. martha: at what time did the final map come through? >> monday night, tuesday morning, before votes were taken. the evidence was there that something like this could happen. there were poll that is showed him ahead in florida, in north carolina, and new hampshire. bill: to your point, a lot of the state that is were raser-tight, they were within margin of error, if you look at florida, north carolina. was ohio or not? >> no, even pennsylvania was 1.9 percentage points. martha: but the point, he wasn't winning in any of them. that's the thing that kept coming back to us as we ran numbers. we could sense that there was something really incredible going out there. you looked tat rallies and you put that against the numbers and
6:39 am
it doesn't looks like it was adding up. even the exit polls when we got early yesterday afternoon, it looked like she was going to win by about 3% which lined up pretty much with what we were seeing in most of the polls out there. >> the exit polls were bad and they are notoriously bad even in 2004. what we saw happen is what materializes clinton didn't bring groups that she was supposed to bring home and didn't happen. republicans came home to him in tend. he won 9% of democrats and she won 1% of -- 7% of democrats. she underperformed among certain groups and he overperformed. bill: he was down 6 points only among white women, is that what the final tally shows?
6:40 am
martha: biggest gender gap that we have seen in an election, right? >> i think that's right. he actually did pretty well with college-educated. martha: better than they thought and that was one of the sort of sticking points for him in suburban areas and battleground states. martha: fascinating, tom, thank you very much. bill: january 20th, we will be in washington, d.c., donald trump will be sworn in as commander in chief. what about his first one hundred days in office? a number of questions about that developing already today, martha. martha: there's the white house and we now know the next occupant, big questions about the future of both parties. just yesterday and the day before, what are the republicans going to do with this kind of future? now, the story is completely on its head, we will be right back. >> no dream is too big, no challenge is too great, nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. america will no longer settle
6:41 am
for anything less than the best. [cheers and applause] mother in-law with a keen sense of smell... glad bag, full of trash. what happens next? nothing. only glad has febreze to neutralize odors for 5 days. guaranteed. even the most perceptive noses won't notice the trash. be happy. it's glad.
6:42 am
6:43 am
what makesheart healthysalad the becalifornia walnuts.r? the best simple veggie dish ever? heart healthy california walnuts. the best simple dinner ever? heart healthy california walnuts. great tasting, heart healthy california walnuts.
6:44 am
so simple. get the recipes at walnuts.org. >> we are going to get the work immediately for the american people and we are going to be doing a job that hopefully you will be so proud of your president, you will be so proud. again, it's my honor, it was an amazing evening, it's been amazing two-year period and i love this country. bill: victory speech came at 3:30 this morning stunning republicans while raising questions for republicans along the way. former white house media spokeswoman and dennis out in cleveland and both fox news contributors. good morning. fresh? >> ready to go. bill: you look at our home state
6:45 am
of ohio, northern tier of that state it was blue in 24004, it was blue in 2008, it was blue in 2012 and just a line of red across the top. you say you saw it coming? >> oh, yeah. i would say a year and a half ago my wife and i would make it a point to go to ethnic events in cleveland and we saw enthusiasm for trump that was surprising. this was the summer before last and my feeling is that this was a rejection of both political party's establishment and rejection of the media establishment and rejection of financial establishment. the american people are hurting economically and they are not going to take it any longer and trump was their vehicle for an expression of their discontent with the status quo. martha: you look at the party picture here and over the course of this week, one of the big topics of conversation is what's the republican party going to do. there's a civil divide, a war
6:46 am
going on in this party, how will they pick up the pieces when hillary clinton wins and now you have a situation that we haven't seen since early 1900's, white house, senate and house, mercedes. >> as a republican it's an incredible accomplishment. for the party it still needs to heal. there are republicans that need to find space within new trump world. a order in republican party right now. what we are going to see is the fact that, i think, gridlock will be minimized in washington. i think you're going to see donald trump working with both parties and the fact that you're going see a paul ryan speaker, hopefully and mitch mcconnell in the senate, the opportunity to really move forward the economic agenda, to move forward on immigration and trade, this is a chance to really be able to as donald trump said, cut the deal. martha: sean hannity says he thinks paul ryan won't survive
6:47 am
as speaker and in a sense that people that didn't get on board needed to essentially be punished. >> i don't think that's the right approach. i think at this point we need to find the positive path and i think that would include a speaker ryan. he is incredibly well versed on policy. i think he would be just a natural ally for donald trump to be able to push forward his agenda on better -- the better way and on conservative policies and i think for donald trump it would work to his advantage to have speaker ryan in the house. bill: we are going to hear from him at 11:15 eastern time in hometown in wisconsin this morning. majority, house, senate, the white house. democrats had that in 2010. >> absolutely. bill: what do you think you learned from that? >> first of all, i think it's a mistake to look at this -- this election through a partisan lens because there isn't a victory for the republican party. it's a victory for people who have been excluded from the
6:48 am
political process and from the policy decisions. there's an elitism that has dominated our country's politics that just got overturned. having said that -- bill: but you had a chance there? >> the democrats blew it. bill: what did you learn from that experience? >> that if you say you're going to bring change, bring change. the democrats had a big opportunity when president obama was elected. he had lightening captured in a bottle. it was extraordinary. he promised dramatic change and frankly, he didn't get the cooperation he wanted but nevertheless the american people wanted that change, that's what yesterday was about and frankly if president trump doesn't deliver they'll -- martha: obama was a change in the wrong direction because the fact that we saw obamacare employed and i think that was a big part of his legacy. that's what he pushed forward in 24010 and so i think that becomes a big issue for
6:49 am
president obama. >> mercedes, i think what happened was that with president obama's experiment with health care demonstrated is the difficulty and the challenge of trying to make change within the context of a for profit health care. it's a big problem. >> the government unfortunately is not the solution. >> we can debate that another time. bill: you know what's bugging me, when was the last time that president had members of congress dinner, when was the last time he physically he went to capitol hill, how long has it been? we cover the stuff every day. i can't even remember. that tells me that government stopped working. martha: that's right. >> there needs to be reaching out to congress, to both parties and but i will tell you this is not a victory for political party because the american people want change and they'll go to whoever is going to deliver it to matter what their party is. bill: thank you, sir. martha: thank you, guys, great to see you this morning. ohio came up big as we have been discussing for donald trump. so what was the key victory in
6:50 am
the buckeye state? we are going to talk about that. bill: how did they get it so wrong? leading up to the big night last night. >> we are going to make this decision now, the fox news decision desk has called pennsylvania for donald trump, this means that donald trump will be the 45th president of the united states. in reality they're not. if a denture were to be put under a microscope, we can see all the bacteria that still exists on the denture, and that bacteria multiplies very rapidly. that's why dentists recommend cleaning with polident everyday. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria.

6:54 am
the last year, how decisive was the trump win after we boil the numbers down in ohio? >> martha, clinton only won seven counties of 88 in ohio and trump's margin of victory was more than 450,000 ballots over 5 and a half million that were cast in the buckeyed state. trump showed particular strength in the part of the state that republican nominees don't bother to step in and clinton showed weakness in places like this, cayahota county, it's heavily democratic. there were 70,000 fewer ballots cast here than in 2012 even though clinton did two separate get out to vote events in cleveland during the final weekend of the campaign.
6:55 am
that's not to say that voters were not excited generally, the statewide turnout here was almost 70% and that's even though in much of the state yesterday for a lot of the time that polls were open it was raining, martha. martha: in terms of the help from the local gop in ohio, there have been so many stories about -- how well coordinated the effort was, how was it there , peter? >> it's interesting, last night the trump-ohio victory party was at a different location than the gop ohio victory party and the incumbent portman manage today win reelection even though he distanced himself deliberately from donald trump a while back and the popular governor here john kasich who has not really talked very much about trump for the last few months didn't show up at convention in his state either was tweeting a lot of praise last night for republicans who won close races but not for donald trump. it does not seem like anybody is really too concerned about that, though, a lot of folks had been
6:56 am
really worried that ohio was not going to be the bell weather anymore but they don't have to worry about that right now, martha. martha: they're safe for now. peter, thank you. bill: still intact, the strings stand. the night of history, america. donald j. trump a billionaire businessman with zero political experience is the president elect. bret baier breaks down and you will see that address live here on america's news room. >> every single american will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

7:00 am
martha: we are waiting for a big moment in all of this. we thought last night that we would hear from hillary clinton after her concession. we know that her camp called donald trump's camp and they had a brief but respectful conversation by all accounts. we are going to hear from hillary clinton about a half an hour from now it's the guidance that we have right now, but boy, you just have to believe that her world has been turned upside down by what has looked like it was going to be a victory for her for the past several weeks. donald trump will become the 45th president of these united states, welcome everybody, brand new hour now of america's news room. i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. martha: what a night. bill: clinton will speak in
7:01 am
about 30 minutes. saying that no dream is too big and no challenge too great for this great country. >> to those who have chosen not to support me in the past, 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. [cheers and applause] >> we will embark upon a project of national growth and renewal. i will harness the greatest talent of our people and we will call the best and brightest to leverage the tremendous challenge for the benefit of all. it's going to happen. [cheers and applause] >> we have a great economic plan. we will double our growth and have the strongest economy anywhere in the world, at the same time, we will get along
7:02 am
with all other nations willing to get along with us. bill: team coverage from six hours ago. we are live with bret baier. let's start with mike emmanuel. we will hear from hillary clinton 10:30 east coast time. what have you heard from the campaign in the hours? >> some people go back a lot longer with hillary clinton to her years as secretary of state or even before that as the u.s. senator from here in new york and you would expect a sincere thanks to them to advancing her political career and also a tribute to those who have given financially in other ways to her and her husband over the last three decades or so. when clinton didn't show up to election night event last night, her campaign chairman stepped in
7:03 am
just after 2:00 a.m. >> i want you to know, i want every person in the hall to know and i want every person across the country who supported hillary to know, that your voices and your enthusiasm means so much to her and to tim and to all of us. [cheers and applause] >> we are so proud of you. >> clinton talked in the final dais of this campaign about the need for healing after this brutal 2016 election cycle. she expected it would be as president elect, now she has an opportunity to begin that process even though she has lost the race for the white house. bill: this is a brutal thing, mike, as you pointed out appropriately so when you are in the game for that long and hustling every hour, every day of every week, of every month trying to bring home victory and then it doesn't happen, image the shock has to be significant already. >> they are incredibly stunned
7:04 am
bill, they essentially believe that the polls were correct, that they were leading, they felt like they were going to all the right places in the final days, battleground states like north carolina, also to pennsylvania and to michigan, they thought they were doing all the right things to stop a trump surge in the final hours. last night you saw a lot of long faces and a lot of tears and simply in a state of shock. they thought they were going all the way to the white house and many of them thought they were going with her, bill. bill: thank you, mike. we will see hillary clinton in about 10:30 east coast time, martha. martha: bret baier, anchor, bet, you listen to mike emmanuel and you think about the time and passion and emotion that goes into the campaigns. your thoughts on hillary clinton coming out about 26 minutes away. bret: it's going to be tough for her supporters. no one saw it coming. they thought the exact opposite and were embolden by the early
7:05 am
polls. i think that's going to be really interesting how she handles it. i'm sure she will handle it with dignity and grace and concession after john podesta came out. i want to say that that undercounted, un covered trump vote. this was the reagan democrat who is a trump republican who didn't tell pollsters, i'm voting for this guy. this is it. they didn't tell exit pollers but they did cast their ballot. bill: former congressman from ohio was sitting in your year 25 minutes ago and relayed a story to us about how he would go to all ethic fairs throughout cleveland, ohio and he felt it a year and a half ago that people were -- they were motivated,
7:06 am
they were ticked off and they had felt that they had been overlooked. so he believes he saw it coming. >> and i don't think that any other republican could have gotten this cross-section of votes other than this billionaire who portrayed himself as a blue-collar billionaire, who identified with these folks. tell me another republican who could win youngstown, ohio, tell me another republican that could win districts in michigan and pennsylvania. they tried pennsylvania for years and years and years. martha: for republicans to be the go-to party in this case of the blue-collar worker, the american worker who feels left behind and abandoned, i mean, they have been the mainstay of the democratic party for a very long time and you're so right, and you think -- donald trump, jr. calling the spot of the
7:07 am
blue-collar billionaire and he's not your typical billionaire and relates and resinates in a big way. bret: rick sanitorium said and he wrote a book, blue collar conservative and trump had him up to talk about that book and what it meant and how to identify. i think he did it better than most. he was also obviously brash in some of the things he said, that's to say the least and that was attract i have to some folks who were sick of political correctness. you have an agenda and a republican senate and a republican house and they will be enabled to finally pass that repeal bill that made it to president obama's desk that he vetoed.
7:08 am
they will have that. martha: he said he was going to put a special session to do exactly that. that's on his lists of things to do. bill: just to complete the circle on hillary clinton, do we have a picture from late last night at the convention center in the west side of manhattan. look at this, bet. this is the jacob javetz center, it's on the hudson river and that is a glass ceiling, this was the plan, that was the theme, this was the victory party that had been planned for hillary clinton and last night she never took the stage. she was a no-show. bret: one of the things you talked about, martha in exit polls the gender gap started to close and donald trump was starting to do better with women and that told you a lot where this was going to go. hillary clinton, you know, realized, i think, that this was a changed election. you heard former president bill clinton try to say that she's
7:09 am
the change agent, she can make a difference, but at the same time president obama was saying, she's my third term and telling the black caucus, i will be offended if you don't come out. this is about me. so it was a changed election but she ran a campaign that said, you can't get to that change but people did. martha: i find it so striking that this issue and you look at the glass ceiling which was ready to be the symbol of the first woman president and yet when you look back, bet, we heard really so little about that over the course of the campaign, about the significance of that moment and for whatever reason, it did not resinate with people as something that would be special and monumental in a way that really propelled vote. and there was still a significant gender gap out there and many would say donald trump works pretty hard to create that and was sort of lucky to overcome it in the end but for whatever reason, she was not the person to be that woman, to
7:10 am
break that glass ceiling and he ended up connecting with a lot of women who said, you know what, there's other stuff that's more important to me right now. bret: think about what he overcame with women to win this vote. i mean -- martha: quite a bit. bret: the access hollywood tape, are you kidding me? martha: things that would have ended anyone else political career and people were willing to overlook and gives you a sense of just how fed up people were. i don't care about this and i don't care about that, what i care about is obamacare, what i care about is the military and go back to law enforcement issue as well, the law and order issue -- i thought new york police officers outside last night and this morning, what he has said to them about the respect he has for them is something that resinated with people as well. bret: in washington it is an elite establishment group. martha: boy, did they get a wake-up call.
7:11 am
bret: 72 days from now and inauguration day will be unlike anything that we have seen in the capitol city of the united states. martha: drain the swamp. been a great year on the road for all of us and there's more to come, i think, of all of this. thank you so much, bet. bill: my head is exploding too. [laughter] bill: you talk about blue collar, we talked about the white vote and we talked about manufacturing job loss. this is where detroit, michigan. you see the margin of difference there. if you had a stronger african turnout in that county alone in the the city of detroit, that might be enough to make up for the difference there between trump and clinton as it stands right now and this is milwaukee county, city of milwaukee, she clocked in 288,000 votes at the
7:12 am
moment, 2012 over 300,000. and statewide, just to make the point here in 2016, it's almost the margin of difference, a little less, though, between clinton and trump, point being african-american turnout in some of key areas is down. it wasn't like it was four years ago or even eight years ago and that was to be expected a little bit based on some of the data points we had been pulling in but it may have made a difference there in places like wisconsin and michigan, martha. martha: yeah, very interesting. we did see donald trump in some ways double the number with the black vote in places like north carolina over what mitt romney did but still in single digits over all. just minutes from now we are expecting the first public remarks from hillary clinton as she gets ready to end her campaign and to stand in front of her people and explain to them her devotion to them and her commitment to them and why they felt short.
7:13 am
and now he is president elect, what can we expect in donald trump's first one hundred days in office as they ring the building of trump towers with concrete barriers, we are being told. we are live in new york city. >> i've spent my entire life in business looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people all over the world. that is now what i want to do for our country. [cheers and applause] >> tremendous potential. you don't let anything keep you sidelined.

that's why you drink ensure. with 9 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals. for the strength and energy to get back to doing...
7:17 am
...what you love. ensure. always be you. >> we are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airport, schools, hospitals, we are going to rebuild our infrastructure which will become by the way second to none. martha: first speech that donald trump gave as president elect of the united states. he listed priorities and he sealed the deal much of the surprise of many people. what can we expect for the first hundred days in office, guy benson political editor and katie, news editor for townhall.com. welcome to you both. >> good morning. martha: bright and early after a
7:18 am
long night last night. katie, jump in, what are you expecting in the first 100 days? >> we will hear him talk about the supreme court. he released his list of conservative justices earlier this year, mike lee being one of them, senator mike lee, i think that will really show the projection of not only just this supreme court pick but down the road as well. in terms working with congress to do what he said last night, build the bridges, restore the roads, restore infrastructure, we are really going the see plan of bringing paul ryan and mitch mcconnell on the table and say, how do we govern and get this done. we are going to get a view on how he plans to work with congress in the next four years. bill: you take a crack at that? >> i agree with the supreme court. there should be pretty quickly a nominee to replace justice scalia in the mold of justice scalia. this is one of the concrete promises to conservatives. he needs to keep it right out of the gate. i also think there's been symbolic obamacare repeal votes, we could be getting ready for a
7:19 am
real obamacare repeal vote very soon and i also think we will probably see a lot of those executive orders go away. i mean, live by the executive and die by them when you die an election. he can come in with a pen and cross those things out. that's the thing about president obama this morning. i was thinking about it. he explicit argued to the american people over and over again very loudly and prominently, if you want to protect my legacy, my policy legacy, you have to elect hillary clinton. and the american people said, no, thank you. bill: we asked rand paul about in the last hour, he did not seem to dive into that issue when it came up. not that he was dismissive but not a full embrace, i would suggest. martha: just take a look at what we are seeing here. you feel the weight of this moment in new york city and once again the irony that this is all happening in the middle of manhattan so in one area of midtown you're waiting for hillary clinton to walk out of
7:20 am
the peninsula hotel which is right around the corner from trump tower, i would add and get into her vehicle. we have not seen her since she lost election, go over and make announcement at the place where she was supposed to break the glass ceiling last night. then literally around the corner from the shot that you're looking at right now, the new york city police are in the process of putting a concrete barricade all the way around trump tower because obviously the president elect's security is their top priority right now and the fact that this is all happening within each other. we will take you live as soon as that gets underway. we talk about the reaction also, took about stunning drama at the white house this morning, katie. as president obama wakes up to have breakfast with michelle obama and they wonder what will be left of his legacy.
7:21 am
>> we have seen a rebuke of barack obama's policies for years now. we saw the overturning of the house in 2010. we saw the republicans take over the senate in 2014, yes, barack obama won reelection in 2012 clearly last night the obama coalition didn't come out in full force for hillary clinton. he this morning is looking at this and going, okay, what are we going to do about this and there really isn't a whole lot he could do but offer donald trump some help in the transition. >> 33 or 34 republican governors on top of all of it. president obama swept into office with party and power and leaves them with almost nothing. bill: to viewers at home, hillary clinton is up in ten minutes. paul ryan is up in an hour and five minutes. barack obama 12:15 two hours from now. republicans control congress. house and senate, what that could mean for his agenda. martha: how did the media get this whole story so wrong.
7:22 am
[laughter] martha: we will be right back. liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. liberty did what? yeah, with liberty mutual all i needed to do to get an estimate was snap a photo of the damage and voila! voila! (sigh) i wish my insurance company had that... wait! hold it... hold it boys... there's supposed to be three of you... where's your brother? where's your brother? hey, where's charlie? charlie?! you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you. liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance

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. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. see me. see me. see me. on my way.
7:24 am
find clear skin... and a clearer path forward. for a different kind of medicine, ask your dermatologist about cosentyx.
7:25 am
bill: 10:25 here in new york. we are waiting on hillary clinton. she should be leaving her mid-town manhattan hotel heading for a location nearby and we expect to see her and her first appearance and her first words since her stunning defeat and concession at 3:00 o'clock this morning. also next hour paul ryan speaks, the house speaker in his hometown of jamesville, wisconsin, we will have that live for you and barack obama in the noon hour. a lot to watch today. many news outlets meanwhile reacting to trump with astonishment. huffington post headline,
7:26 am
morning in america, let the people rule. howard fox news media analyst and host of media buzz here to analyze, wow. >> the shock that you saw after one television after another as anchors dealt with a presidential trump, really reflected the magnitude of the misjudgment that went on in the campaign. i'm not just talking about yesterday and a few polls being off or something like that. i'm talking about a year and a half of press core that was skeptical about donald trump that was hostile toward donald trump and -- bill: he was hostile toward them. >> that is part of the story. donald trump who grew up in this city fighting with the new york tabloids had that mastery of the media, some people said were too hard. there's no question, bill and martha, that in the general
7:27 am
election there was 140 to 1 negativity donald trump versus hillary clinton. trump not only fought about that but i think he benefited from it because a lot of people who supported him and inclined to support him despised the media, see us collectively as part of the establishment. if he was fighting against us, he was fighting for them. martha: you look at the storylines, you look at donna brazile, the things we saw on wikileaks and the american people got a view that is the media establishment and washington, d.c. and it's a pretty cozy circle. >> way too cozy many things busted by the trump campaign. i remember talking on the air and said donald trump wouldn't make it to iowa, he was a side show. i said don't underestimate this guy, not that i knew this would happen to this magnitude. even today looking at some pretty respected people on the left blaming the press for not
7:28 am
warning us, donald trump is as fascist as is if we somehow not told people everything about it. they can come to the grips to the fact that donald trump won this election fair and square. hillary clinton in states like michigan that none of us thought was really possible, so you look for scapegoats and for some it's the press. bill: image a lot of viewers watching us suggesting that we are out of touch. perhaps we did not have the pulse in america trying to figure out what was moving out there and what was not and often times correspondents that go to rallies, clinton and trump and they compare the two. you go to clinton rally, last month of general election campaign and you don't have the energy that you'd expect and you go to trump rally in the next county over and the people are climbing off the rafters. everybody would come on tv and say the following, howie, votes don't translate to enthusiasm of crowds that turn out. i think we could differ on that
7:29 am
point now. >> there is no question that there is something of a bubble in new york and washington and santa monica in terms of the way we look at the country and the anger and frustration. when you have interviews with some of the trump supporters, some were not politically correct or misbehaved, there was a feeling, showed up in a lot of media reports, well, they are a bunch of racists, sexists, that's why they liked donald trump. some of them may have been but there are a lot of hard-working, frustrated american that is want to -- americans and donald trump was their vehicle for that. martha: you have to think about the trump family and every time they went anywhere in the media, something is happening out there and we are going to win. over and over again they were seeing this on the ground, time and time again and we've all thinking, trained in our brain to say u but what matters is the numbers, you know, and we are
7:30 am
not seeing what you're seeing reflected in these numbers and i don't think anybody will ever look at the situation quite the same way again. >> we could be slaves to the polls. he's the president elect, world leaders are going to call us, nobody believed in me except couple of long-time loyalists and that is true. this is a guy who had never done this before, came out of no where and somehow he pulled off this miracle. martha: truly the most stunning political story that any of us have ever covered. >> and it is just beginning. martha: thank you very much, howie. so what did donald trump do right? what did hillary clinton get wrong in the end? we will debate that fair and balance as we wait for hillary clinton moments away.

bill: we are awaiting hillary clinton. we are told she'll make an address at 10:30 eastern time. paul ryan next hour. barack obama the hour after that all forth coming. martha: all these live events are ahead. republicans keeping control of the house and senate last night, giving president-elect donald trump a unified government for at least the first couple years he's in office. the exit polls it shows it was very important top voters who supported donald trump. reporter: analysts long
7:35 am
maintained the president's lasting legacy would be his supreme court picks. this is make no mistake about it, a devastating blow to the democratic party. there are potentially three supreme court picks that could open up over the course of a trump presidency. equally damaging, the president's two signature achievements, obamacare and the iran nuclear deal could be dealt death blows. here is what at least in congress made all of that possible. marco rubio surged in the last weeks of the campaign to an 8-point victory over democrat patrick murphy. in georgia, johnny isakson blew out jim barksdale with a 15% far gin. in north carolina a 6% victory by incumbent are you charmed you are about. patrick toomey eked out a 1-points victory stover katie
7:36 am
mcginty. in ohio, a huge victory. and in indiana, evan buy suffered a loss to todd young. the only democratic pickup was in illinois. it flipped over to tacky duckworth, the congresswoman from illinois. also one more case which remains up in the air. in the house now, democrats picked up 7 seats, nowhere near enough to change the balance of power. bottom line, republicans despite the tectonic democratic shifts in the united states now wield a tremendous amount of power. bill:' republican chris collins publicly supported donald trump. he represents the area of
7:37 am
buffalo and eerie county. 9 months ago on this frawm were here to defend your decision so support donald trump. when i asked you what parts of the country would accept a message from donald trump, you said the following. we are rust belt. whether you are in detroit, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, the areas of the country devastated by nafta, we are have much oppose to the trans-pacific partnership. our jobs were shipped to china, stolen by the chinese. we need to goat those back because every manufacturing job we get back creates six more jobs. bill: you are like babe ruth on that, you called the shots. in living in an area devastated by nafta and trade. i knew ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, very much like the area i live in.
7:38 am
i'm out and about all the time. i was confident the message would resonate. it did sow. i'm not surprised. i know a lot of folks are. but 9 months ago i saw the potential of this coming. it did happen. good for america to stand up for our grandchildren and children toe up live the american dream and to be able to have jobs. i can tell you the president of ford is going to rethink his decision to send the production of small cars to mexico. we'll get our jobs back. bill trrl weed called it an inside straight last night. that's what we felt trump had to do to win ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina, 4-4 on all accounts. then we went to hillary clinton's path to victory and shifted that to her inside straight with i did not happen. -- which did not happen. republicans control the house and the senate. you have got a republican
7:39 am
president in the white house. you know the disagreements, the difficult extension within the republican party. we were at a republican function in ohio, the republican governor in ohio did not even go into the arena for the convention. how do you merge a common focus to be productive to make a statement and frankly not blow it like democrats did sticks years ago when they were in the exact same position, sir? >> we are united with donald trump while some had lukewarm support when i was out there at the extreme edge. we all know what we have got to do with obamacare. we know what we have got to do upon trade. and so i think even the freedom caucus. their frustration was frankly that barack obama, the liberal, we couldn't make him do something he wasn't going to do.
7:40 am
we are now all driving in the same direction. some may want to drive at 80 miles an hour, others at 60 miles an hour. i believe you will see a sue night congress, including the freedom caucus. we have a 1:00 call this afternoon. it will be all hands on deck. we have to redo the health laws. we'll repeal obamacare with our replacement. he said bring your sleeping bags, we'll be working long nights. it will be a work product that done very campaigned on, repealing and replacing obamacare, making sure we have energy independence which means no more war and coal. he was very clear, donald trump was, i'm confident the republican house coming back to 240 members and maintaining the senate will be putting legislation that will be signed into law in the first 100 days that's in tune with putting america first and making america great again for all americans. bill: thank you for you your
7:41 am
time today. you said that your county of erie always picks a winner. it went with with hillary clinton last night. >> just barely. martha: we go live to the scene in new york city. just a few short blocks from here outside the peninsula hotel, we are told hillary clinton will get in her car in a few moments to head over and speak. it will be a momentous event. we are told she'll be on a stage in front of a teleprompter. the press will be at the back of the room and she'll speak in front of her supporters. i want to mention just moments ago, jeb bush who had a very bitter election back and forth with donald trump has tweeted this. congratulations on your victory, donald trump. as our president, columba and i
7:42 am
will pray for you in the days to come. perhaps they will now be united in a common cause with the white house, the house and the senate all in the republican today the gory as we wait for hillary clinton in a stunning sequence events. donald trump president-elect. hillary clinton. what is next for her? we'll debate it when we come back. >> i think a few things happened. we have been seeing in the data for a while. i think people don't model the electorate correctly. hillary clinton couldn't bust through this 45-4 percent ceiling.
7:43 am
7:44 am
7:45 am
martha: what a morning. this is the scene in new york. on the left side of your screen is the peninsula hotel in
7:46 am
mid-town. it's literally around the corner from trump tower. it's where hillary clinton is gathering up to head over to the new yorker hotel. they have taken a ballroom scene there. she'll have american flags behind her. she'll be on teleprompter and at a podium. this is the moment everyone thought would happen last night. it did not. you can only manage the emotions going through the minds of hillary clinton, bill clinton, chelsea clinton, all of whom believed they were heading back to the white house for another four years to continue the political legacy of their family which crashed in a huge way last night. let's bring in ed rollins. former campaign manager for ronald reagan and chief strategist. doug schoen, former advisor to president bill clinton.
7:47 am
doug, let me start with you. what next for hillary clinton? >> i think it's unchart water. she has always been committed to women and children. knowing her as i do, i'm convinced she'll extend an olive branch as he did last night. in the short term we'll get expressions of unity. whether in the long term that plays out is a very, very good question. bill: why did she lose, ed. >> she didn't understand what was going on in the country. this is not an instant movement. this has been going on for a period of time. the amazing thing about trump. i have never seen anybody battered and bruised as badly as he was. he didn't flinch. he thrived on the crowds, the media attacked him every which way. the establishment didn't want him. this was a revolution of the people an became the vehicle. who would have thought the
7:48 am
multi-billion air -- my dad was a shipyard work. my dad would have been a donald trump guy. he was a reagan democrat. the fact that a billionaire can understand what's going on in your life better than the people who are supposed to be doing that is pretty astonishing. bill: is that the blueprint for a great president? >> having worked for two presidents. a president is a decision maker. he has access to all the advisors in the world he could have. i think he will put a strong cabinet together. the president has to make three or four decisions every day. his whole life has been a decision maker. he's a ceo. you make the big fundamental decisions, you set a direction, you fix things. i think his challenge to the african-american community is a
7:49 am
serious challenge. he will try to do something with the urban city and the infrastructure and taxes. the potential is there because he's up a big personality to be a very, very big president. martha: take us inside the clinton mindset. the inside word is last night around 3:00 in the morning kellyanne conway got a call on her cell phone from huma abedin saying is donald trump available, we have a phone call for him. she said of course. they spoke briefly. when you think of huma abedin and anthony weiner. you think about the laptop and the course of what happened and the people close to them in this tight-knit clinton circle. wow, doug. >> there was as bill and ed were saying, a sense of inevitability. when donald trump was nominated it was measuring the drapes in the white house. the real problem now is what ed was saying becomes the huge
7:50 am
challenge. can we get the democrats and republicans working together on an infrastructure plan and to finance it. everybody agrees we need tax reform. but can we agree on a plan? can we get a plan to help the inner city and get jobs? how will donald trump react to the internal divisions inside the republican party? we don't know the answers to any of that, and that will determine whether he's a great, good, or president who we hope won't get marginalized. marchr. martha: why didn't she come out last night. >> she was waiting for final votes to be counted in michigan, pennsylvania, wisconsin. she did not want to concede until she was absolutely sure. she didn't want to repeat 2000. bill: we are on stands by.
7:51 am
we want to squeeze. >> quick commercial break in here. there are a number of events. president obama is number 3. you will see all of that in the next 90 minutes. our coverage continues on this the morning after. it's november 9 in america, 2016.
7:52 am
7:53 am
7:54 am
bill: it's just a tick before 11:00 a.m. in new york. we'll see and hear from hillary clinton for the first time since the concession at 3:00 a.m. this morning. veterans of campaigns and political organizations, one on the left, one on the right. you have both been part of losing campaigns. >> and winning. bill: and winning campaigns.
7:55 am
doug, when you are on the end of a losing campaign as long and bruises as this one has been. take us inside of the room, insides the hotel, what's the conversation like? >> i have went in clinton world, not recently in this campaign, but in the past six years with bill clinton, with hillary clinton in the first senate race and subsequently. billsubsequently. bill, losing campaigns are blame games and a world of bitterness. we saw that in wikileaks before the loss was even on the radar. you will see them all blaming won another. the one person who won't take blame is the secretary of state. publicly you will get a good speech from her. but she is not somebody who in my experience when things go bad is gracious.
7:56 am
that's my experience with her from the start. i remember after the new hampshire primary? 2008 she got on the phone and said you geniuses work this out. i have got better things to do. bill: i was in the hotel that night and saw the steely atmosphere that's surrounded bill clinton and hillary clinton and terry mcauliffe. martha: hillary clinton is on her way to the new yorker hotel. you think about wikileaks and what it re-veeld about what's inside camp clinton and the recriminations and barbs that fly back and forth. but i think people got a front-row seat. >> the hardest part here is oftentimes you know you are going to lose a campaign. you hope you will not lose it, but you know it's coming. they had no idea this is coming.
7:57 am
this is a one-round knock. all of a sudden you are laying on the mat. all of a sudden you are knocked out. martha: i think the trump campaign was preparing themselves a little bit. >> i think they were. but i think the shock of all of this -- we have seen in this cycle not only knocking out a bunch of significant republicans. we knocked out two legacy families. we knocked out the bushes and the clintons. we are gone. we are playing a big mark on obama. you think in terms. the bushes are gone, the clintons are gone, and obama who thought he was going out with a 50% after he profl rating. it's a very tough game. pell also be blamed for a lot of this because his coalition didn't turn out.
7:58 am
he campaigned very, very hard and aggressively. he won't have his legacy and his legacy will be undone. martha: remember way back when barbara bush said the bushes and clintoned had had their time and it's time for another family to step up? >> this is a repudiation of the obama administration and it's a call for new policies and approaches of a fundamental nature. >> when george h.w. bush lost to bill clinton, he said to me one time, i was a veteran, i'm losing the veterans to a draft doarnlg. they take this very personally. there is no redeeming it. she can make speeches and be a good grandmother. but she wanted to be president for 15 years and she worked
7:59 am
every single day. it's got to be a miserable day. bill: you go back to 2006, because you had a two-year build yum, the defeat of the iowa caucus. then you try and calibrate for the next 8 years, how are you going to find a way back. that's consuming. >> it all comes down in an instant in the dark of a manhattan night. >> it's also a repudiation of my party, the democrats. didn't pick up the senate when they expected to. minimal gains in the house. losing the presidency when the pollsters thought it was a near certainty. the democrat party has to go back to the drawing board, too. >> losing it to donald trump, a total outsider. martha: think about hispanic voters and you think about blue
8:00 am
collar workers who clearly have spoken last night. and they said, you know what? we are voting for you, but you are not taking care of us. >> the numbers with those core constituencies were lower than the clintons expected, anticipated and thought effectively was their birthright. bill: it's 11:00 on the east coast it's when our colleagues take over on "happening now." we'll stick with our coverage live in our hotel in new york city and wait for clinton. but we want from bring in jon scott and jenna lee. ohio and north carolina bothe both went -- both went for donald trump last night. jon: i'm in ohio. jenna lee in
