well. we will explore it tomorrow. it's your money, it's your life. if they come to blows, well, it's your video. we will see you then. hello, everyone. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." a big day for president-elect trump as some major appointments for top appointments in his administration are announced. jeff sessions for attorney general. retired lieutenant general michael flynn for national security advisor. and kansas republican congressman mike pompeio for cia director. they have critics of the national security policies of president obama.
"the wall street journal" is reporting that president-elect trump is considering retired general david petraeus for defense secretary. we are delighted to be joined by trump transition senior advisor kellyanne conway. welcome to the program. >> thank you. >> we're very excited to have you on "the five." >> we're going to keep you here. >> exactly. it was a last minute thing, but shows what a worker you are. no problem, will come straight over. >> i skipped the motorcade because i needed to finish work. i thought, let's go over. >> did you take the subway? >> i walked. >> i walked over there today. i walk, too, because the -- >> it's easier. it's 67 degrees. >> i'm a man of the people. >> exactly. action long as you have sensible shoes, which i specialize in, you will be okay. exactly. we want to hear about the transition. big announcements today. what kind of feedback are you getting, and how do you feel about the choices? >> excellent choices across the board. these are men of great character, all of whom are
qualify dodd theied to do their day one. and folks who are loyal to president-elect trump's vision of the way national security and counterterrorism should go. in the case of jeff sessions in the department of justice, i think it's been a politicized of late. he can bring it back to where it should be. he has been a well-respected federal prosecutor of 15 years, i united states senator from alabama for 20 years. u.s. attorney, i believe, from alabama. this is a man who spent his life in legislation, in law enforcement. i have gotten to know him in his legislative capacity and certainly as two of the members of mr. trump's core team joined the campaign. i think they are excellent choices. we shouldn't be surprised that president-elect trump is staffing up with people who share his views on these issues that the american people apparently decided that he would have the upper hand in governing. >> his vision for america. elections have kwens.
>> national security day was today. he announced three national security advisors, two people of the cabinet, one advisor. can we put something to rest? the transition team is no in disarray. this is the media narrative that's been going on for days. here you have basically five announcements in the first nine days or ten days since he has been elected. that's fantastic. i will tell you, it's running smoothly. >> it really is. not since we heard again and again that we had no path to victory have i heard something so inaccurate. i appreciate -- yesterday from david axelrod from vice-president biden, both conveying the same message to america, which is you don't form a government overnight. biden said that he feels confident that trump and pence will be ready on day one, that they were not ready on day one.
the media wants stories and names and personnel and then going to attack the people that he puts forward. as an extension of the campaign that should be over by now. at the same time, give us time to really vet and interview. trump has spent the better part of eight days mainly in trump tower doing nothing but talking to heads of state, interviewing candidates for his senior staff or his cabinet. many outside folks are calling him. jeb bush called him. meeting with mitt romney tomorrow. >> i have to follow-up. you know this is coming. what are you going to -- i think you have to be there. if anyone knows that man, you know that man. >> i know enough to respect him. have i gre i have great affection for him and his family. i will serve in my best and highest use. we're trying to figure out what
that is. he has welcomed me to his administration. i have said this before. >> what do you want, kellyanne? >> i want for my four small children to not suffer because their mom is in the white house. >> children. always the children getting in the way. >> not at all. i would be a hypocrite to say otherwise. they're great kids. they will flourish either way. >> good for u. >> it's an important decision. there are personal and professional considerations at hand. i just -- i know i will be there for he and vice-president-elect pence who i have been close to for many years who i think will be a phenomenal vladimir putice. it will come together. i will be there. >> like a typical amazing mom, not making it about herself. i think that's important. your role as a mother is hugely important as to many mothers across the country. dana, you have a question. >> i have lots of questions. i want to ask about the news about -- i don't know if it's news. "the wall street journal" reporting about david petraeus. that would be amazing. you probably can't comment. i know what your position is.
can i ask you about it? >> you can ask. >> you can say no comment. >> i will tell you about david petraeus and others. we have a long list of possible candidates for each of these positions. i have seen the list. they are robust, filled with people who would not surprise you and filled with a couple people who would surprise you. i think what president-elect trump is trying to do is really think about how everybody would work together. and i know in the heat of the campaign and the fog of war people have their gladiator costumes on and they look at each other through a political lens. you have to look past that when you are forming a government. i don't want donald trump to turn into a mushy hallmark card. he is a tough leader. he can do significant things in short order. but that aside, this is a man who in business for many years knows how to build consensus, knows how to cut deals, knows how to negotiate. in the best interest of what he is -- what his duty is.
it's to the american people and those that he promised to represent. having said that, he is meeting with mitt romney tomorrow. doesn't mean it leads to a cabinet position. he has had 70 meetings, 60 meetings. not all of them will get cabinet positions. he learns a great deal. in the case of general petraeus, obviously, he is well respected across the aisle. you want the best and brightest in your administration. this is about america, this is about the world. in the case of governor romney, i think these are two businessmen who will talk about job creation. i think a lot of what romney talked about in 2012 has become true. >> great point. especially as it relates to russia. >> when i want to assess the situation, i do the rve, the reverse view equation. i turn on the view. whatever they say, i assume the opposite is actually the truth. they are upset about the appointments. they are worried about flynn,
jeff sessions. everybody is a racist. what do you make of the hysteria that seems to happen when there's a republican in the office at the start. >> many people are still fighting the last war, meaning from nine days ago, the campaign. the campaign is over. he is your president. i think that everybody was asking the right questions about the wrong candidate and their supporters. they were saying, will donald trump accept the election results. will he stop the protesters from -- are you kidding? i couldn't walk to work last saturday. there were 20,000 people there, not to greet me, called protesters. some of them not so nice, by the way. the fact is that you have to get over it and you have to realize that no one donald trump appoints will make them happy. that's a fact. the wrong guy won. they were for the other team. they are still for the other team. they're not quite team america and they should be. that goes for a lot of them. the other thing is, i think most of the media did the world a disservice by not preparing them for the possibility of donald
trump winning the presidency. it was not part of the conversation. when it should of been. the clues were there all the time. people wanted change. they did not trust or like her much. she didn't have a positive uplifting aspirational message. he did. her campaign was about him. his campaign was about people. i think that people should have looked at the electorate differently. i feel like a lot of the folks who cover america don't understand america. if that's the one thing i can offer from this election is, stop listening to each other. those who are breathing the air of politics or media or donor class, stop listening to each other and start listening to people. they were very honest from the very beginning about what their fierce and frustrations and aspirations were. they brought it to the ballot box. >> are you glad you didn't get -- you didn't go against bernie? do you think bernie would have had a better chance? >> i don't think this country would elect a socialist. >> barack obama.
>> another socialist. >> watching the democratic primary, we did see a great deal of vulnerability in hillary clinton. we saw -- we chose states early on like iowa and michigan where she had not done well in the primaries, especially iowa 2008 where she came in third after obama and john edwards. we thought she never went back to michigan to try to heal that. i think she went to flint and a couple other places. but these states, a lot of these places felt like the donald trump message was there. bernie sanders won 22 states and millions of votes. >> i know, let me ask you two quick polling questions. one is, when you look at corey lewandowski going over to london saying, it was comey in the last weekend that really shifted this election and gave it to donald trump, and, of course, donald trump said he doesn't know what
he will do with comey and hillary clinton said she believes comey is responsible, what does the pollster think? >> the pollster doesn't agree with either of those wholesale. here is why. the polls started to tighten before the comey announcement. it was due in large part to trump being out there talking about obamacare. at that moment, people were opening up their mailboxes and they were getting obamacare premium increase notices. obamacare really is the issue in the off-year election. it won the republicans everything. they couldn't do it in 2012 because they nominated the political cover for obamacare in romneycare. but that aside, people have felt frustrated that obamacare for many americans is the most -- is the best example of how innovative -- >> you think it was obamacare? >> i think it's a combination. >> finally -- >> comey hurt. hillary said on friday night when comey made his announcement, she came out and
said, people have already decided about how they feel about the e-mail scandal. her advisor said it's baked in the cake. they can't say nobody cares and when she loses, this man cost us the election. she has been running for president for decades. >> that was corey that said that. >> she had -- she's been running for president for a long time. she had all this time to find a better way to connect with the american people, to really scratch the surface of the issues that they tell pollsters they care about. >> lack of capacity. it wasn't -- she didn't have it in her. don't go anywhere. would you want to? kellyanne conway is staying with us. we will be right back. lots more on "the five." too bue kids to get a repair estimate. i just snapped a photo and got an estimate in 24 hours. my insurance company definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance

president-elect trump getting out of the city this weekend. going over to the trump national golf course in new jersey. that's where he will have his meeting with mitt romney and continue deliberations as he forms a cabinet. we're joined today by trump transition senior adviser kellyanne conway. let's talk a little bit about what's been going on with the idea of a romney meeting bringing in outsiders.
romney was such a critic of donald trump from the start, as you well know. the specific point of interest to me is russia where he clearly, even during his run against president obama said, russia remains our number one foe. on the other hand, you have donald trump. and donald trump as well as mike flynn, who is now going to be his national security advisor, all have very strong, positive relations not only with russia but with russian prime minister vladimir putin. >> that's not true. how do you know that? is that a question? the answer is no. as a pollster would say, strongly so. there's no indication that any of these people have a strong relationship. look, what candidate trump made very clear in the debates and otherwise, juan, is that if there's a way to work with russia on things that matter to both countries, we will do it. for example, if they want to help us defeat radical islamic
terrorism which hillary clinton refers to as our determined enemies, then, sure, we will explore that. i took with great note what president obama said yesterday. he said -- right there in front of merkel that he hopes president-elect trump as president will find ways to push back on russia when necessary and then also to -- i think he used 36,000 foot level terms, but find a way to work with them and be cooperative when appropriate. i think president obama went further in his advice to president-elect trump than he has even as president when it goes with russia. i have to say, too, talk about the campaign still going on and people still being very partisan about donald trump's election. that was one of the talking points used against donald trump all through the campaign is that he has these ties to russia and the hackers and vladimir putin is his bff. there is no evidence of that. the american people rejected it. it wasn't important to them. they didn't believe it or they just said, it's one of the many things you are telling me is important to me as a voter
that's not important to me as a voter. >> dana? >> i have several questions. one of them -- i'm excited about the policy side of things as to what could happen. i am the resident nerd of the show. i'm curious what, if any -- you have to prioritize. you have a lot going on. you are forming a government. how much input can you have or are you having on the lame duck session of congress that's about to happen? there's things -- government business that needs to get done. it's been amazing to see republicans on capitol hill all come together. i was curious if there's any news on that front. >> well, president-elect trump speaks regularly with leader mcconnell and speaker ryan and other members of the conference in both chambers. at the same time, we know there's a president in office. he has to deal with -- >> finish it out. >> even in lame duck. look, the next president, donald trump, will inherit big messes all the way across the board, domestically, internationally. i think it's important the
congress now at least take stock of what president trump says he would do in the first 100 days and see how that scares wiquare what they are doing and prime the pump that way. divided government -- it's over. they have one party control. it will be like it was for president obama at the beginning of his two terms where he had a democratically controlled house. he chose to do certain things with them. they lost everything not nailed to the ground in the 2010 election. i just predict that donald trump, given how transactional and successful he is as a businessman, he will want to do big things very quickly. he will need legislative support. >> gregory? >> i'm not insulted. >> don't be. >> i will use a mediocre analogy. imagine you are going out with something and that person dumps you and that person has sec
thougsecond thoughts and you go out with them just to rub their face in it. isn't that what donald trump is doing to ted cruz and mitt romney? >> of course not. we're glad they came to him. >> there you go. >> of course not. he is taking the counsel of a very popular member of the grass-roots movement, ted cruz. that's not -- and then -- >> it's not the other one. >> and then mitt romney. governor romney and donald trump are the two most recent republican presidential nominees. it takes courage to run for president. one was successful. one was not. they will have good things to talk about. everybody forgets what obama and hillary clinton said about each other in 2008. he said, she will say anything to get elected and turned around and made her his secretary of state. >> you worked with senator cruz. it was pretty bitter between those two. >> i did. but senator cruz called me after
the election and he came and endorsed donald trump before that and stuck with him. in the last month when others did not. others did not, like kelly ayotte, the senate candidates who said they weren't sticking with donald trump. >> i have two more wonderful people here. >> you know ted cruz and you know mitt romney. what positions do you think they might be suited for? cruz is rumored to be in consideration for attorney general. the other was supreme court. and mitt romney, you heard secretary of state floated. >> we have long short lists for every position. at the same time, i don't think every meeting needs to lead to a position. i believe senator cruz and governor romney, whether they have a normal or informal position, they have much to contribute to the conversation. >> eric? >> i can't give up. the never trumpers that i fought over last year and a half -- and that head of the never trumpers, mitt romney, that was a lot.
it's blowing my mind. i will get over it. donald trump sees -- he was a transition -- >> governor -- >> he took the olympics from negative to profitable. i get that. can i ask you this? the national security briefings, this is a big deal. how is the president-elect handling the new information? >> fabulously. and the vice-president-elect is in on the briefings. he knows it's private, confid t confidenti confidential. i find donald trump to be an excellent listener and learner. that campaign was his voice, his choice. those were his messages. people would be astonished and i think heartened to see what a great listener he is among those around him. i have seen that on full display since he was elected. i'm not in his national security briefings. i know they are taken seriously. the public should respect the fact that any president should not divulge what they learn there. >> we have to go, but i understand he will settle the
trump u lawsuit. was that your advise? >> i'm happy he is doing it, but it was not my advice. i stopped practicing law a long time ago. i'm a happy person. 12 step program and everything. >> kellyanne is staying with us. don't go away. plenty more for us to talk about. ordinary tissues left dakota's nose sore and red. so dad slayed the problem with puffs plus lotion, instead. with lotion to soothe and softness to please. a nose in need deserves puffs, indeed. what makesheart healthysalad the becalifornia walnuts.r? the best simple veggie dish ever?
oh no, that looks gross whoa, twhat is that? try it. you gotta try it, it's terrible. i don't wanna try it if it's terrible. it's like mango chutney and burnt hair. no thank you, i have a very sensitive palate. just try it! guys, i think we should hurry up. if you taste something bad, you want someone else to try it. it's what you do. i can't get the taste out of my mouth! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. shhh! dog, dog, dog.
on the campaign trail, then gop nominee donald trump often promised he would keep jobs here on u.s. soil if elected. it appears the president-elect trump may be keeping his campaign pledge. ford confirms a production line is not moving to mexico. instead, choosing to keep making their lincoln mkc in kentucky. last night mr. trump tweeted, i worked hard with bill ford to keep the plant in kentucky. i owed it to kentucky for their confidence in me.
some are saying that trump had nothing to do with it. trump transition senior adviser kellyanne conway is back with us. on the surface it looks like, ford, if you are go -- if you plan on moving to mexico and shipping the car back in the u.s. with a 35% fee, that's an incentive to stay. >> it's a big incentive to stay. this is one of the issues that donald trump highlighted from the beginning. nobody was talking about illegal immigration. nobody was talking about trade. nobody was talking about the fact that jobs have been shipped to china and mexico and could be brought back. so he elevated the issues from day one. he was at center stage in the first fox news debate on august 6, 2015 and never lost the top spot. always stayed true to these issues. i think you see that now as president-elect. he is taking calls from people like the ford corporation. they're having meaningful discussions. people shouldn't forget this is what businessmen do. they try to solve problems, fix things, build consensus and
deliver. >> can i follow up on this? threatening a terrorist does nothing about the real problem which is the price of a union worker. that problem is still there. how is he going deal with that? >> he dealt with it on the campaign a little bit in that -- i think it works. look how many union households went for him. overwhelmingly dramatic. we saw it in the data early on. we saw in pennsylvania, in ohio, in michigan it turned out and other places that that was -- the rural voters and union households, many of whom are still registered democrats to this moment, went for him. i think they feel that unions have outlived themselves in many places and that it's also hurting those in the private sector, hurting entrepreneurs who are trying to attract and retain talent, trying to grow their business and succeed and prosper. i think it's that basket of issues. even i want to get back to illegal immigration. donald trump is the first person, after jeff sessions, to talk about illegal immigration through the lens of the american
worker. the question was always, what is fair to the illegal immigrant. he asks what's fair to the american worker who is trying to champi compete for the same job. it comes from the same issues. >> can i throw in there that unions love the idea of breaking these trade agreements, because manufacturing jobs will come back to the united states? >> so these are some of the things he talked about that resonated. part of the theme of his campaign was about the working men and women that felt like they had been forgotten. doesn't it make sense, essentially, that a businessman needs to come to the table and to the table in the white house to try to encourage the economy and encourage u.s. companies to come here? what are some of the ideas in terms of taxes and regulation that would support that move? >> well, his tax plan cuts the corporate tax rate to 15%. people are excited about that. it reduces capital gains. he unleashes energy investments and exploration in a way that would spur economic growth overall. we have energy under our feet
and in our shores. we're relying on foreign dictators to supply a lot of our energy. also, he talks about infrastructure investment. he talks about immediately doing away with the obamacare penalty where you have a -- a non-choice choice. you can buy government run health care or pay a tenlty. all of that put together, he anticipates over 3.5, 4% growth. why are we settling for 1.2% growth? why is that enough? that tax package and part of the 100 day plan, i think pieces of that will roll out very quickly once he gets inaugurated. >> dana? >> it could happen on day one, possibly with executive orders. i know on the manufacturing side, one of the things from a policy standpoint as well, cafe miles per gallon standards. that's one of the things the car industry was saying, you are killing us, plus the added costs in terms of obamacare.
do you anticipate that happening fast? >> that's something he will take a look at very seriously early on in his administration because as you say, it's really -- it's a political capitulation to some of the special interest groups who want that done. bernie sanders and hillary clinton on their side of the aisle talk an awful lot about climate change and global warming and fossil fuels, of course, which they seemed to like to consume but don't like you to consume. donald trump won. i think that conversation is because people are tired of being told what to think and how to act and what to drive and how much water should come out of the sink when they are washing their hands in a public rest room. i think you will see swift action early on in the term. >> kellyanne, we're lookinged for to confirmation hearings in the senate. what we can anticipate, you spoke about this in the opening segment, is a lot of criticism about the selection of jeff sessions, the senator from alabama, and his history. he was the first federal judge
appointed by ronald reagan who was rejected by -- >> 30 some years ago. >> i think we are more racially sensitive today than 30 years ago. >> what are you saying about him? >> the question is, how does president-elect trump expect to deal with so much -- the democrats are going to be tough on this. i don't doubt he will confirmed with the republicans in charge. >> why put the country through it? why won't they accept this man? he was elected fairly and squarely. name five people not named clinton, sanders, elizabeth warren or michelle obama that the democrats would accept as an -- >> no one. that's why we can't take it seriously. >> i think you can't turn away from the racial concerns. >> i think it's so incredibly -- >> there's nothing to support he is racist. >> i'm talking about sessions who was rejected by the senate over this issue. >> 30 some years ago. >> he has been a federal
prosecutor. he has been a u.s. attorney. he has been a united states senator for 20 years. we're raising -- >> this is a guy who said -- the klan is okay with him until he learned they smoked dope. >> that's the time -- >> he has a very substantial civil rights record that's respected by those -- >> can i bring up one good news for jeff sessions? people that rejected him $30 year ago, most of them are dead. >> they are yelling in my ear. kellyanne, thank you for joining us. stay right there. facebook friday is up next. special this year? here's a few suggestions. always cut the head off the turkey before you cook it. and don't forget to serve delicious stove top stuffing. my mouth is watering just thinking about it. the stuffing... not the turkey head.
cartels, militias, terrorist groups. they all need a place to park their cash and cherna is their dirty little piggy bank. we're going to insert into the country while nobody is looking. we're going to steal their money, sir? no, we are going to destroy it. we're going to finish this mission. anything we find is ours. do you want to trust a bunch of black water marks? i mean the rush, i've never felt anything like it. if we stay here we're going to die. then we die.
always been conservative or liberal? if not, what changed you? kimberly? >> well, since i was from san francisco and previously married, they said, wait a second, you were married to the mayor of san francisco. does this mean -- no. i registered as a republican in college at uc davis. he was aware of that. >> love concurs all. >> well, some. >> you did get divorced. >> love concurs all for 3 1/2 years. >> what love doesn't concur, the law can fix. in a nice way. >> fantastic. >> were you always a crazy liberal? >> i'm only a crazy liberal when i'm with you guys. >> some think you are moderate. >> they think i'm conservative. >> but that's all. >> it's true. i'm going to tell you something.
i went through this this very day. when i'm talking to most people they say are a conservative black guy. >> on what issue? >> my gosh, you wouldn't believe it. >> he is pro choice. >> let me say -- >> champion of charter schools. >> i go to church every sunday. i'm a big family guy. and a pro business. i'm a capitalist. on all those, people would say -- i will say this to you. i have children who are very conservative. >> you gave birth to republicans. >> i think the republican there is when you go through -- my wife had a lot do with it. if you live in a big city and you see the excesses of democratic domination of big cities and the limited orthodox thinking that applies to the cities and minority communities, it could make you change your mind. >> there you go. eric? >> i grew up an athlete. i started trading on the trading
floor as apolitical. grew up poor and all that stuff. it was neither right nor left. when i went to work for cnbc and saw the economy, how the effects of taxes and regulation, what that had on the economy and spending power, i realized that conservative and liberalism are so vastly different for the economic well-being of the country and the individual, i migrated this way. >> you followed the money. >> but did you follow the money in your wallet? was that what changed? >> i made money before i went to cnbc. >> he knew how to make money. >> the economic engine that lowering taxes is. that's why -- i'm so high on this corporate tax from 35% to 15%. i think that's what's going to cause a 4% growth. >> hope it doesn't cause inflation. >> dana? >> i would say -- i grew up in wyoming and my grandfather was a county commissioner for western county, republican guy. we just -- i grew up hearing
about how federal government was strangling smaller states or states with a low population, like wyoming. but i would say when i really knew was in my first job at a network affiliate right out of graduate school when i was working at channel 3. that was when the republicans had swept -- sort of this year where republicans swept all across. the talk in the newsroom against conservatives and republicans was so strong that i think that's when i realized, i don't belong here. i left. >> i had a similar thing with juan, except i was a left winger in high school. i got to berkeley and in six weeks to 12 weeks, when i saw the end result of leftism, i became a conservative. >> electric shock therapy. >> you become a conservative after being around liberals. because there's more moralism on both sides that is -- >> what are you going to morph
into next? >> i will become a kimberly con. i don't know what that is. i will stalk her. up next, this weekend, a fox news special takes you inside trump tower for a rare and revealing look at the personal life of the president-elect. a sneak peak that was when we return. walked around the shelter, no intention of adopting. he was the very last kennel in the very last row. emaciated. he was skin and bones. usually what you see in neglected dogs. it was one of those complete, meant-to-be moments... i totally fell in love with him.

president-elect trump has been a successful businessman and reality star. he has rearely given a personal look until now. mr. trump reveals some exclusive details about his family and childhood, including how he felt being sent to a military boarding school as a teen. here is a preview. >> well, my father thought it would be good for discipline reasons. >> that's an extreme thing to send your kid away to upstate new york. what kind of discipline problems were you having? >> well, i was just somebody that was rebellious. >> did you resent your dad when he sent you? >> not at all. i understood. >> did he sit you down and say here is why? >> he said, i want to shape you up. >> joining us now, the host of
"objectified, donald trump." this is must see tv tonight. you taped this two months ago? >> yes. we have seen a side of donald trump over the last 16 months that is almost linear, it's this kind of very self-assured, strong guy. there is another side to him that a lot of people haven't seen. i think it comes through on this show where we go through his penthouse and look at objects that he has acquired through his life from childhood on. and use the objects as a jumping off point to talk about what was going on. you are going to hear donald trump talk about successes but also failures, fears, shortcomings. he is very candid in this. >> we will talk it around the table, if you don't mind. we will start with greg. >> speaking of objects, harvey, where is your soda?
where is your big gulp? >> small gulp. >> you are cutting back. >> do you have a question? >> no. that was my question. >> go to kimberly. >> hi. how are you? i'm excited to watch this. i'm curious what the reaction is going to be by his detractors and those who like to spew. i find it's going to humanize him. >> look, i think everybody has seen one side of donald trump and only one side for 16 months. this will be a very different view of him. my personal opinion is that donald trump is a combination of these two people. will it change minds? i don't know. frankly, i'm not trying to change minds. i just want to show who this guy is day to day and then you mesh
it together. some people are going to change their opinion about him. a lot of people aren't. but i think this is going to give you at least a perspective. that was kind of the point of this, that you will have to now judge what is the combination that makes up donald trump. i don't think people have seen this side to be able to even figure that out. hopefully, that will help them tonight. >> one last quick question from eric. >> harvey, how did you get this access? this is amazing access to a man whose time was valuable, especially in september, a couple of months before the election? >> i will say this. he was extremely busy that day. i've known him for a while. i've known him really as the star of "the apprentice" for years. when he said he would do this, he didn't bank on having to go to new hampshire and do a show later. it got to a point where he said, i've got to go. i said to him, you can't go. i've got to finish the show. we have this at the end with the
outtakes. at one point, i literally blocked the door so he couldn't leave. the secret service were standing there laughing. i said, i have to finish this. he was great about it. when we actually went from object to object, he was really in the moment. again, i'm pretty proud of this. i really do think you are going to see a side of donald trump that a lot of people just have not seen. >> congratulations. >> looking forward to it. >> grateful for your time. thank you so much. it airs tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern here on the fox news channel. one more thing is up next.

coloreds. to come here and said this award, this honor today. >> congratulations, congressman john lewis. >> wonderful. very moving. >> happy birthday to mickey mouse, 88 years old today. tomorrow, no time like the present to go to florida. i'm going to be on -- let me tell you about the jasper book tour. the villages at 10:00. i can't wait to be there. i will be in lakeland, tampa and ft. myers. hope to see you down there. >> jasper is going? >> felt jasper will attend. >> the one that i baby-sat? >> we adore the villages. >> we are moving there. probably sooner than we think. right? greg especially. >> love the villages. love mickey mouse. >> looks good on him. >> he still fits into the little shorts. >> i know. i own them. tomorrow 10:00, i got pete.

forever. one georgia man is trying. he does not know who won the presidential election. he works at home and he has pledges from friends and family not to tell him. he is fed up with the political system like so many people, went to bed on election night without learning the results. when he woke up the next day, he felt so peaceful he decided to wait to find out. a couple hours have turned into a week and he says he doesn't want to know. he is wearing a sign that says i don't know who won, don't tell me. please don't tell me. >> donald trump! >> by the way, he said it's peaceful. >> you know he's watching. >> in his bubble of ignorance. >> somebody could point to a t-shirt and be like -- >> his daughter told him that there have been protests. he doesn't know who is protesting about what. >> it's going to be greg, because he is this close to the beautiful mind situation. he will lock himself in some room with a bubble suit. >> what make u.s you think i do do that all right. >> that's on wednesday. >> me in a room with pictures of

"special report" is next. decision day for donald trump. the president-elect makes his first major national security picks, delighting conservatives and enraging democrats. this is "special report." good evening. welcome to walk. i'm bret baier. the man who shocked the world last week with an upset victory to win the presidency is not disappointing those who voted for him based on his views about foreign policy and immigration. president-elect trump picked retired it army lieutenant michael flynn as his national security advisor and jeff sessions as attorney general.
