side of this who are not going to accept this and we will see what the shape of that response will be, who becomes the voice of that response. you mentioned barack obama. he will not be the voice of that response. but who is and who does? and we have yet to see that part of the story play out. >> that was john dickerson. well, there was a large crowd outside the white house tonight. some were trump supporters, some were not. president obama campaigned hard for hillary clinton. and he was on the stump for his successor more than any other president in modern history. donald trump, a man he called
presidency a serious blow. clinton had promised that she would protect his signature achievement, obamacare, which has been damaged in recent months. she had pledged to undertake immigration reform, roll out environmental protections and defend that landmark nuclear deal with iran, which trump says he is going to tear up. supreme court nominee merrick garland doesn't look like he is going to get confirmed and lead us can a trump said he is going to renegotiate obama's free trade deal with asia and other alliances, so this is going to make it very difficult on monday, when president obama heads to europe to try to reassure allies that america is going to stand by their defense, particularly considering that trump has made friendly overtures to russia. how is he going to explain this pledge to possibly starting trad deal with china? so this is going to be really difficult for the white house to
day, but, scott and norah, president obama said before the polls close that when the sun rises, america will still be the greatest nation on earth. i think it's safe to say he didn't think he would wake up to this kind of result. >> that was margaret brennan at the white house. now it could be a wild ride on wall street today with news of trump's victory. dow futures plunged overnight. and overseas, there were heavy losses. jill wagner is at the new york stock exchange. jill, good morning. >> good morning. donald trump's surprise win on uncertainty surrounding a trump presidency is shocking financial markets. they mostly priced in a hillary clinton victory. so far tonight, there has been a global market sell-off. asian and european markets are tumbling. at one point, dow futures here in the u.s. were pointing to more than 800-point drop at the
i should note they recovered a great deal after hillary clinton conceded. markets don't like uncertainty and there are just a lot of question marks surrounding donald trump's economic positions. he said he wants to revamp the tax code and u.s. immigration policy. he has been critical of the u.s. federal reserve. there is also concern the u.s. could withdraw from major trade agreements. the mexican peso dropped sharply on fears a trump presidency would mean less trade with mexico. investors will digest all of this and what it means. markets in the u.s. still pointing to a major drop at the open but they have recovered a great deal. anne-marie? stock exchange, thanks a lot, jill coming up on the "morning news." foreign fallout. we will take you overseas for reaction to the u.s. election results. this is the "cbs morning news."

part of the panel after that happened. i said, roger, what is your reaction? and he said,, you know, i think i want to go home and sleep a couple of hours and i'll come back and tell you tomorrow. this was totally unexpected. i think certainly from those of us who have been covering politics over the years, this is -- i think charlie is right. this is -- this is historic, but i don't think we can say right now where this goes from here. >> unexpected, not because of any interest in politics, but unexpected because of the poll the polls were telling us. polls done by many different organizations at many different times were all pointing in the direction of a clinton victory. >> the polls and the behavior of a candidate that people said was not fit to be president of the united states. so many people have found his behavior egregious but at the end of the day, it really didn't matter. i take some hope in his speech tonight, though, that he said he wants to reach out.
