list of 29 world leaders that trump and pence have spoken to over the last week. charlie? >> chip, thanks. kellyanne conway is a senior adviser to the trump transition team and she was campaign manager for the president-elect and we are pleased to have you here. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> i'm reading the papers this morning. a personal question. i see the name of kushner and bannon and sessions and priebus and ryan and mcconnell and pence and the family. what is it that you might be doing in this new administon i just want to go for my highest and best use to serve president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence. >> have you a special relationship. you came in at an important moment in the campaign. >> i have a special relationship with both of them and i'm thrilled they will be leading this country. charlie, i am still sorting that out. i have four small children and i'm sure many of your viewers can relate to that and i need to balance the personal considerations for the professional ones. i've been with president-elect
7:07 am
activity that is trump terry and transition down in washington where i was also this week. >> have you been asked to serve a role? >> i have. i was asked immediately what i would like to do. >> you were? >> yes. >> turn to the people who will be coming including heads of state. the japanese prime minister. as you well know, the candidate said, during the campaign, that he might want to reconsider and have japan consider how many he is willing to prepare and pay for its own >> maybe they will discuss that today. i think it's a much more informal meeting than all of that since we have a current president and commander in chief and president obama is still the president. we are sensitive to the fact that these early meetings with heads of state occur within that construct, that fact, charlie. but, at the same time, i'm very happy the prime minister is there to meet with president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence today. but president obama is on his last foreign trip in that capacity, so i think any deeper
7:08 am
the united states will have to wait until after the inauguration. >> the front page of "wall street journal" is reporting that jared kushner will probably get a top post in the administration. >> i spoke to him last night. he has not applied to any job and has no security clearance but he is incredibly important to his father-in-law president-elect trump and was a big, big part of our election victory, franklin. jared has been intimately involved in the campaign strategy from day one and i'm her brothers will continue to be very supportive, but time will tell in terms of the positions that different people -- >> traditionally, the president announces his national security staff first. south carolina governor nikki haley is heading to trump tower today. her lieutenant governor told local reporters she is under consideration to be secretary of state.
7:09 am
positions. its serious business. i took a look yesterday at the time lines from past administrations and we are basically right on target with respect to where other presidential administrations in formation have been including president obama. i very much appreciated what vice president biden said yesterday after his meeti we in our world did not have our administration formed in week one and they don't either. it would probably be irresponsible to go ahead and name all of the people right at once, but we are very happy that governor haley is coming to meet with president-elect trump. i'm sure they will have a wide ranging conversation and i think everybody should be very not surprised the number of people have come forward expressing interest in high level positions. >> does it mean the president-elect is seeking out
7:10 am
because of some of the questions raised during the campaign? he wants to make sure women are in his administration? >> the major qualification is can you do the job? that is a major criterion. are you qualified to do this job? and then i think, secondly, charlie, it's do you support what president-elect trump has put forward as his first 100-day plan. it's specific and out there for all to see. and any of these individuals who would serve in his cabinet on a senior staff should be well aware this is a man who intends to get things done quickly. he is a business he delivers and he produces. the excuses of divided government that has existed for probably six years having two parties in power in washington, d.c. is gone now. you have one party in power. i think it's luplifted you can execute and deliver and produce and takes away the excuse i think many have been using in washington, d.c. to not get things done. >> is rudy giuliani, he has been very vocal about his desire to be secretary of state.
7:11 am
any number of positions. he is incredibly loyal to donald trump. he was very important during the campaign. >> are you concerned about his business connections that have been raised? >> no. no, i'm not. and i understand that people want to vet things publicly but, again, we have a process that should be respected and gayle, i just can't help but feel whether it's the protesters or whether it's some of the unfortunate and frankly inaccurate headlines about the would-be team and cabinet members floating through the press. w steve bannon headline? i assume you're referring to that. >> pretty much everything. the man is brilliant and he treats everyone kindly and the same. i think people are cherry-picking some headlines and maybe even some projects that he was not -- he was not involved with. he has the ear and the trust of the president-elect and rudy giuliani would be -- if he was our secretary of state, he would command a certain presence worldwide but i think he is qualified for many different positions. >> great to have you here.
7:12 am
>> hillary clinton spoke in washington last night one week after conceding the presidential election. she received a very warm reception from supporters of the children's defense fund. it's a nonprofit advocacy group she worked as a some light on what the last week has been like for her. chont w clinton was greeted with a standing ovation and kiss on the cheek from the woman who hired clinton out of yale law school in the 1970s. >> i will admit, coming here tonight wasn't the easy thing

7:33 am
i don't believe we are a fundamentally different country today than we were two weeks ago. the same country with all its grace and flaws and volatility and strength and resilience exists today as existed two weeks ago. the same country that elected donald trump, elected barack obama. i feel badly fhe whom this election will mean more uncertainty and insecurity. but i also feel like this fight has never been easy. the ultimate irony of this election is the cynical strategy of the republicans which is our position is government doesn't work. we are going to make sure that it doesn't but they are not draining the swamp.
7:34 am
decided to do was i'm going to make sure government doesn't work and then i'm going to use its lack of working as evidence of it. donald trump is a reaction not just to democrats, but to republicans. he's not a republican. he's a repudiation of republicans but they will reap the benefit of his victory in all of their sinnicynicism. i guarantee you people are coming to jesus about one of the things that struck me odd about this election and maybe i missed it, but nobody asked donald trump what makes america great. and that was the part that i -- >> reporter: he wants to make america great again but nobody said to him what is it that makes america great? >> correct. >> reporter: what is it you want to do that we are not doing now? >> what are the metrics? because it seems like, from listening to him, the metrics are that it's a competition and

7:36 am
you know? this is -- and we also have to caution ourselves to the complexity of that history. i thought donald trump disqualified himself at numerous points, but there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him is -- has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric. like there are guys in my neighborhood that i love, that i respect, that i think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of mexicans and not afraid of muslims and not afraid of blacks in the liberal community you hate this idea of creating people as a mondomonolith. they are individuals and it would be ignorance. but everybody who voted for trump is a monolith, is a racist. that hypocrisy is real in our country. this is the fight we wage against ourselves and each other. america is not natural. natural is tribal.

behavior and history to create something that no one has ever -- that is what is exceptional about america and that is what is -- like, this ain't easy. it's an incredible thing. >> incredible thing. it's so nice to hear from him, charlie, about this. >> he is very reflective about the country and the election. he does not miss being at comedy central but has a lot to say and you know how much his voice was missed when you heard him. >> yes. >> i like it. >> very interesting points. >> i like how he, rather than dismissing trump or those who voted for him, tried to explain and understand why they voted for him and not -- don't paint them as a monolith. >> about all of the things the people are talking about in terms of muslims and that, they are worried about insurance premiums. >> shows you how people jump to conclusions and jon stewart is basically saying, calm down. everybody think. america is going to be okay. >> he is fatiscinating but he ao talks about "the daily show" and
