tv Today NBC November 9, 2016 7:00am-10:01am PST
. from nbc news, this is a special edition of "today" decision 2016 with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today," 7:00 on the west coast on a wednesday morning. if you went to bed out west early and you are just waking up, i'll repeat the headline. donald trump will be the 45th president of the united states. >> the voters have spoken and spoken in a very loud manner sending a message that is clear. trump and obama have talked by phone and the president has invited trump to the white house tomorrow. the first of what may be several meetings. >> that's right. hillary clinton conceded the
presidency to donald trump. that came in a phone call at about 2:30 in the morning. >> but in a surprising move, she did not appear in her campaign's watch party and did not make an election night concession speech. >> she is scheduled to deliver one 30 minutes from now at the new yorker hotel in manhattan and we are there and we'll have it for you live. we are keeping an eye on wall street where trump was expected to cause immediate panic at the opening bell, but take a look. the dow in positive territory up 25 right now. >> all right. let's get to where things stand. nbc news has donald trump with 278 electoral votes to 228 for clinton. we have yet to call arizona, michigan and new hampshire. >> as for the popular vote, this is razor thin. in fact, clinton is actually leading this morning by more than 150,000 votes. >> another major headline from the election results boosted by trump's performance. republicans fended off
democratic rivals. they will maintain control of the u.s. senate including key wins in wisconsin, missouri, pennsylvania and north carolina. we have our decision 2016 team ready to go, let us start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt and savannah, good morning to you, how better to describe it than a political earthquake and this morning we are still feeling the shock waves. this was a seismic and improbable victory for donald trump. i spoke to a top official inside trump tower watching the returns come in and even they were stunned. they always thought they would do well, keep this race close, but didn't think he would come out on top. >> sorry to keep you waiting. complicated business. >> arlo: for president-elect trump, a dramatic and sweeping victory. >> as i've said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but rather an
incredible and great movement made up of millions of hardworking men and women who want a better country for their families. >> trump announced he'd received a call from his fierce rival. >> she congratulated us. it's about us on our victory, and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. >> reporter: after a brutal and divisive campaign trump is pledging to bring the country together. it is time for us to come together as one united people. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans, and this is so important to me. >> as his aides watched the improbable victory take shape, sources at trump tower tell nbc
news there was euphoria, hugs and high fives. campaign manager kelly ann conway ticking off the ingredients of an upset. rally crowds matter. we expanded the map. trump's victory builds on the backs of white working class voters for whom he was the candidate of hope and change. >> 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. >> reporter: more than 500 days after descending that escalator, trump now propelled into the oval office as america's 45th president concluding his first-ever political campaign. >> it's been what they call a historic event, but to be really historic we have to do a good job, and i promise you that i will not let you down. we will do a great job. we will do a great job. >> reporter: and we are already hearing from donald trump again
this morning on his favorite megaphone, of course, that is twitter where, by the way, he has changed the bioovernight. it now reads president-elect of the united states. trump describes last night as a beautiful and important evening. i spoke to campaign manager kelly ann conway who described the call between trump and hillary clinton. in fact, she tells me that huma abedin, the longtime aide of conway made the call and kelly ann conway received it before they handed it off to donald trump where they spoke for one minute. >> speaking of kelly ann conway she joined us earlier and we began by talking about that phone call between mr. trump and the president. >> it was a very warm conversation, and we were happy to receive the call from the president, and they had a great, thorough conversation about mr. trump's victory. he was congratulated and they resolved to work together which is exactly what this country needs to get the current
president and the president-elect and others to help unify and heal the country. we expect that the two gentlemen will be meeting soon. >> kellyanne, i have to ask you, for months and months donald trump has been saying that the election is rigged. would president-elect trump now agree that the election is not, was not and never was rigged. >> he would certainly say the system is rigged and it proved last night he's got millions of people who agree with him. when he says the election is rigged, what he was talking about he couldn't believe that he wasn't winning and he looked t at the polls and she's a shoo-in and look what happened yesterday. i think there is a frustration for him and those of us close to him and working for him that you've got a lot of people talking to each other and not talking to people and that's what he was able to do here. he was able to put together a campaign, he and governor pence that talked to people, talked with people and not at people.
>> can we go back to last night? i know hillary clinton placed a call to mr. trump. can you tell us anything about that call and was your campaign disappointed that she didn't come out and concede in the way that traditionally losing candidates do? >> well, it's not for us to judge her conduct. i would expect and i've seen reported, savannah, that secretary clinton will come out and address her supporters and the nation indeed today. i don't know if those reports are true, it makes sense to me, but she has to do that on her own comfortable timeline. we have made our way to the hotel to see our supporters and we intend to watch the returns and watch the different states be called and eventually a victor, a president of the united states. while we were getting ready to do that we received a call from secretary of state clinton, and i gave the phone to mr. trump and they had a very cordial, very warm conversation and secretary clinton congratulated mr. trump on his victory and she commended -- excuse me, he commended her for being smart, tough and running a hard fought
campaign. >> kellyanne, let me ask you a personal question, in your heart when you sat with us yesterday morning and you thought you would win this election and win michigan and some of the states that you appear have won, did you believe it or did you have that good a poker face? >> i did believe it. we've seen that happening for a while now. we model the electorate differently than conventional pollsters do. i think that sometimes there are conclusions in search of evidence and if everyone around you is saying the same thing then you convince yourself it must be true. we just wanted people to tell us their fears and frustrations and we were true that we would flip the conventional states and donald trump is not a republican messenger. ronald reagan, a lot of putting america first and creating jobs and being patriotic and renegotiating bad trade deals. you heard him last night. he wants to be a unifier and
wants to help heal and bind the nation and the most important thing mr. trump said last night in his victory speech was that he wants to be the president of all americans and that includes the many who did not vote for him. >> we know whoever won they would have that tall order before them right away and so it is. kellyanne conway, congratulations. i hope you get some sleep and thank you for being on with us. >> you got it. thank you, matt. we expect to hear from hillary clinton shortly. nbc's kristen welker is at the new yorker hotel where she will speak. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. we expect secretary clinton to strike a note of unity when she addresses supporters in manhattan, a scene setter, supporters have been streaming into the hotel, many with tears in their eyes and still reeling from last night's devastating defeat which has sent shock waves all across the world. she was poised to make history, but early this morning hillary
clinton's white house hopes ending. clinton calling donald trump to concede the election just moments before he took the stage, but clinton did not concede publicly, instead sending her campaign chair john podesta to address stunned supporters. >> it's been a long night and it's been a long campaign, but i can say we can wait a little longer, can't we? >> reporter: facing a shrinking electoral map, clinton didn't attend her rally that was being held under the symbolic glass ceiling at the javits center in new york. hours before podesta took the stage, clinton supporters looking shopped and some openly weeping. >> we got a lot wrong. i'm not sure why or how, but there's a lot of divide. >> state after state turning the election map into a sea of red. the billionaire chipping away at her so-called blue wall. winning in what were democratic
strongholds. in florida, disbelief from latino voters after trump who vowed to build a wall during the campaign surged to victory. >> it's very hard for me to accept that a man of his caliber is going to be our president. >> reporter: but this morning there is still uncertainty over a future trump presidency. dow futures plummeting overnight, an anxious crowd gathering at the white house. president obama who campaigned furiously for clinton facing a stunning rebuke. clinton, whose white house hopes were dashed in 2008 by a newcomer from her own party seemed often to be on a glide path toward victory and she was doggeded by voters' lack of trust in her and an email controversy that wouldn't go away. back in new york, the glass ceiling still unbroken as democrats now try to pick up the pieces. and a little bit of color outside a hotel. a 71-year-old woman stopped me with tears in her eyes and said
tell the world how devastated we are that we won't see the first female president. we are awaiting secretary clinton's remarks and we will bring them to you live. matt? savannah? >> kristen welker, thanks very much. >> let's turn to steve carnacy. you are still filling in states at this hour. >> we still have a few to go. michigan, donald trump with a very narrow lead. too close to call, and donald trump leading there, as well. bottom line, he is past 270 and now the president elect. how on earth did he pull this off? a couple of things on this map that we can point things out. here is a shocker, if you'd said after the 2012 election that a republican would be elected president in 2016 and that that republican would not win the state of virginia almost no one would have believed you. this used to be a bull work republican state in the south. the democrats flipped in in 2008 and they barely hung onto it in 2012 and hillary clinton won it last night and she didn't get elected president because donald
trump showed strength in the rust belt that republican candidates have dreamed about for a generation now and they have tried and failed. he pulled it off. he won pennsylvania, first republican to do it since 1998 and he could take michigan and that would be the first time in 28 years. not since reagan in 1984 has a republican won. minnesota for hillary clinton barely. barely. this is a state that last went for a republican in 1972 and donald trump took that thing right down to the wire. this is about rural white voters and blue-collar white voters in the northern states and this is something we haven't seen in a long time. >> steve, you've been up all night and we have a chair on the end for you right here. >> and a blankie. >> ali velshi, good morning to all of you. last night when this was unfolding we looked at the futures on the market and they were down 800. >> they implied if the market were to open at that point at 2:00 in the morning it would
have been down 800 points. >> and this morning, never mind. >> very strange, heading right to the opening bell it was indicating we would be down a couple of hundred points and i've never seen that happened in 20 years of covering market where you go in, the bell rings and the market opened up. it's hanging around the break even point. what happened unlike last night when traders were up in japan were surprised and the first thing traders do when they have a surprise is clear out the product. they'd rather have a loss than hold on to a product that they're going to sell, in this case stocks. as the night progressed and people got to study what a trump administration would mean to certain industries people decided to bargain hunt and that's what happened this morning. traders went in and bought deals and they're still holding stocks. >> let's talk about this, chuck, you have to have a great ground game and you have to have money and outspend your opponents and there aren't enough base points for trump to win. i can go on and on.
you can't alienate the fastest growing demographic in the country and it all goes out the window, it seems. >> i'll give you one thing, he does have something that she never had, a message. she never answered the question why she wanted to be president, and what's the big idea of her candidacy and the response was stronger together. that is a response to trump. that is not a -- what i'm going to do as president of the united states, and i think that caught up with her. if you look, there are two campaigns here that happened. he successfully tapped into rural america and they came out, but look at these raw vote totals. he didn't do better than mitt romney did. she did worse than barack obama. there are 5 million people that voted for barack obama that did not show up in this election because hillary clinton didn't motivate them to do it. >> casey, you spent time with the clinton campaign, did they see this coming? >> they absolutely did not see this coming. last week when i was out on the campaign trail it felt to me as
though it wasn't the final week of a winning campaign. the events were pretty small. she was only doing one or two every day and it just wasn't the pace, but going into the final weekend, everyone flying on hillary clinton's plane it was a celebration in the air. they were kind of laughing off the idea that they could lose this race at all. it was clearly an enormous shock to everyone on this campaign. >> steve, we saw, obviously, that the rural voters came out in force and the so-called minority voters and that demographic might have been depressed and are there other fault lines that you see? >> this was the big surprise. it was white voters in the suburbs and white voters with college degrees and every poll said hillary clinton was going to make history. she was going to become the first democrat to win white voters with the college degree. that was supposed to be a reflection of how much they didn't like donald trump. in the end, she did better than democrats usually do, but trump still won them by four points and that was what was supposed to save the clinton campaign and the suburbs, think about
pennsylvania and the suburbs did not come through in the numbers they were counting on. >> thank you so much. a long night and we appreciate your expertise, as always. as we mentioned we are just a few minutes away from hearing from hillary clinton for the first time and president obama will deliver a speech of his own from the white house a bit later and we'll bring these to you live. >> we're waiting to hear from paul ryan. >> let's listen to al roker and the weather. >> not so easy, is it? >> wow! >> no shame! >> we'll get wet weather coming into the pacific northwest and it's not going to be over for a little while. we've got another frontal system pushing in. a series of fronts coming into the pacific northwest and an isolated risk for heavy rain and flash flooding as we move on into the end of the week. look for heavier showers and thunderstorms around the pugit sound and anywhere from a quarter inch to an inch and a half could be upwards of two inches of rain and as far as the rest of the country is concerned we're looking at plenty of
sunshine and record highs in the plains and into the southwest and sunny skies through the a few contrasting views around the bay area. low clouds in san jose. sunshine around the peninsula. a lot of thick fog around livermore and clear skies into san francisco. you see visibilities around 580 in livermore. less than 200 feet. yous caution on the morning drive. for the afternoon, highs in the mid 70s in livermore. upper 70s, more mild
temperatures expected tomorrow. a chance of north bay showers friday night, better chance of bay area rain arrives tuesday of next week. and that's your latest weather. >> we'll do a slow clap for al. >> the t-shirt's being made with that comment, al, thank you very much. coming up, republican national committee chairman reince priebus joins us live with his reaction to trump's surprise vickory. could he be looking at a new job in the trump administration? and the trump first family from melania to first lady to speculation over what ivanka's role might be in the new white house, but first this is "toy" on nbc. coming up, hillary clinton
bring classic flaky crescent rolls, or not so classic pizza sticks. and don't forget something sweet, and golden brown fresh from the oven. set the table, set the coffee table, set no table at all. the only rule to follow on friendsgiving... is make it your own. happy friendsgiving. warm up with pillsbury. ♪ they got -- to grow up, trolls!oys"r"us kid! ♪ ♪ here we are, it's a trollabration ♪ ♪ come join us we're the party nation ♪ this really is a whole store full of awesome! toys"r"us. awwwesome!
good morning. 7:26 on your wednesday. we just got an update in our newsroom to let you know about. hillary clinton expected to be speaking about 8:00 our time, not 7:30 as originally planned. at some point in the next 30 minutes or so. let's talk about what's happened now in the aftermath of the election. in the bay area, protesters in oakland are organizing another round of demonstrations slated for later today. this is on the heels of protests that got very heated last night as you can tell from this video. there were things burning in the streets, lots of people congregated there. at one point protesters tried to stop traffic on highway 24 near telegraph avenue. the chp says that's when a driver struck one of the protesters out there leaving her with major injuries. the driver was not injured and
stayed on the scene and did talk with chp. we'll have much more on everything election throughout the morning. first a check of your weather with rob. >> right now looking at hazy skies in san jose. thick fog around dublin toward livermore. you see visibilities have dropped off to just about zero at times. watch out for the patchy fog into napa. by the afternoon, hazy sunshine, highs in the mid 70s for livermore, 71 in san francisco, 77 in san jose. two days of mild temperatures. as we head towards the weekend, a chance of a little light rain in the north baby friday night, early saturday. there you see a better chance of rain making a comeback tuesday of next week. mike? >> we're looking over here. the speeds show a slowdown for the east bay and for the south bay. north 101, a tough drive coming toward capital expressway. the late build kicks in for san jose and holding standard for the silicon valley. at the bottom of your screen, 0 880 jammed up. slow through the castro valley
. to those who have chosen not to support me in the past of 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. >> we're back at 7:30, wednesday morning, day after election day and that was part of president-elect donald trump's victory speech after his stunning victory in the presidential race that surprised the whole world. >> people are waking up. i mean, the reaction is incredible here in this country. it's also coming in from around the world this morning. british prime minister teresa may has offered her congratulations to trump while
the iraqi government said its relationship with the u.s. has a solid base and shouldn't change with donald trump's election. >> someone who was mentioned a lot during the campaign, the russian president vladimir putin also weighing in. he sent a telegram of congratulations to donald trump and in a statement putin said he hopes to work together for removing russian-american relations from their crisis state. >> it goes without saying that donald trump's surge of support was a shocking conclusion to what seemed like an endless campaign. nbc's halle jackson is here with our nbc news election center and she's got more on that. good morning. >> good morning. donald trump has stunned a lot of people today, but not all of them. not his supporters who backed him from the very beginning. trump's campaign always said that their army of backers would mobilize the polls and turns out they did and now their impact is reshaping politics as we know it. >> i say it is time for us to come together as one united people.
>> reporter: an ending fit for the most unpredictable presidential race in modern history, donald trump declaring victory after a tight battle against hillary clinton. >> it's surprising, to say the least. >> i am just so excited that america is speaking. not the political pundits and not the elite, it's the people. >> it is probably one of the most amazing things that i have watched and been able to be a part of. >> listen, we predicted that he would be the 45th president of the united states. >> that's right. >> boo yeah! >> the american people saying "you're hired" to the real estate mogul turned reality tv host. the ultimate unconventional candidate who heads to the white house based on a simple pledge. >> we're going to make america great again. >> his path to victory, shaking up american politics, despite unapologetically stirring up policy with comments that might have been the end for any other candidate. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> a total and complete shutdown
of muslims entering the united states. >> i love the poorly educated. >> trump, unshackled and unfazed, connected with those voters who flocked to his rallies. >> it's time to fight for america. i'm not a politician, i can say proudly. my only special interest is you. you. >> reporter: focusing on lost jobs, he shared common enemies with his supporters from the government to the media. >> some of the media is terrific, most of it, 70%, 75% is absolute dishonest and absolute scum. >> while the late-night comics struck a somber note. >> it feels like we're trying to apocalypse and half of the country is voting for the asteroid. >> the people have spoken and in trump they trust to make good on his promise to in his words, drain the swamp and maybe shake up washington in ways we've never seen. >> i can only say that while the
campaign is over our work on this movement is now really just beginning. >> here's the challenge for trump now. after a campaign slog in which both candidates tried to paint the other as unfit to take office, our exit polls show some two-thirds of the country do not believe that donald trump is honest or trustworthy. he now has the challenge of trying to bring folks together, trying to bridge that gap, matt and savannah, and that is something you have heard him talk about already. >> we have. hallie, thank you very much. late night for you. >> you mentioned some news coming out of the white house a short time ago that donald trump and president obama will meet tomorrow. we don't know the time, but can you imagine being a fly on the wall at that meeting? especially considering some of the things that president obama has said about donald trump in the recent past. >> said it to you, basically, all saying this day will never come. take a look. >> do you feel you're responsible for a certain hunger
out there for the messes that donald trump is putting out. >> the message donald trump is putting out is adherence a lot of times during the course of our history. talk to me if he wins and then we'll have a conversation about how responsible i feel about it, but -- >> when you stand and deliver that state of the union address, in no part of your mind or brain can you imagine donald trump standing up one day and delivering a state of the union address? >> i can imagine it in a saturday night skit. look, anything is possible, and i think we shouldn't be complacent. i think everybody's got to work hard. >> i think it's safe to say this is a day president obama did not think would come. >> i think there are about 16 republican candidates who said something very, very similar that donald trump would never be the republican nominee. so fair to say nobody, except
perhaps donald trump in the beginning, saw this coming. >> that's true. we'll speak to the chairman of the republican national committee in just a second, but first, let's get a check of the weather from al. >> we have wet weather making its way toward the northeast and also through the gulf coast. you could see along a frontal system stretching from brownsville and panama city and jacksonville all of the way into the northeast we're seeing wet weather making its way. nothing too horrible and low pressure develops along this system and breathes heavy rains as this thing moves offshore all of the way down into norfolk. look for record highs stretching from the plains on into the southwest. we have the wet weather here in we're seeing a mix of sunshine and some pretty thick fog around the tri-valley. looking at it there live from dublin. 52 degrees. 56 in san jose. fog is set up south of downtown san jose into san martin. visibility less than a mile. look at that, less than 300 feet
in livermore, near zero on 580. hazy sneen. highs today in the mid 70 s in livermore. close to 71 degrees in san francisco. more clouds on friday and a chance of light rain in the north bay friday night into early saturday. weather channel 24/7. guys? are joined by the rnc chairman reince priebus, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i want a sense of what it was like last night. give me some of the color behind the scenes. what was going on? >> well, obviously, when we started out in the exit polling, i think we learned about what we were seeing, but like all elections you get the exit polling and it's like -- to me it's like pure poison, everyone starts chasing it down and you don't know how scientific it is. you know what your voter cores say and your vote count is and you feel good about that and then those come into play and we kept our heads down and as a
team we just said forget about that, keep your head straight. we're going to do our job. let's not get down and move forward and we did and state after state after state donald trump and mike pence delivered. we delivered on the plan. that team did a great job and i was just honored to be a part of it. >> can you share at all what mr. trump's reaction was? were you there in the room when that moment happened and it dawned on him, hey, this is real. this is happening. i'm about to be elected president of the united states. >> he announced this many times to people, the donald trump behind the scene, one-on-one just like this, is the guy we always wanted america to see, and it wasn't necessarily the guy that the media portrayed, but it was the guy in private that we knew was the guy -- >> maybe it wasn't the guy he portrayed either. do you think you will see a different side of donald trump? >> what i was going to say he was steady the whole night through.
he wasn't high fiving and acting -- he knew and he understood what it was to be president of the united states and even preparing for that speech last night, he knew he wanted to deliver a calm, measured response and he did it. >> let me ask you, people have described it as a reinversion of the republican party, and others have described it as a hostile takeover of the republican party. >> i think in some ways there was a realignment of the midwest. there are a lot of people that feel they were left behind and there were a lot of people that felt like politicians have delivered things and have said things and never delivered. i think he captured the frustration of the american people, but i think also donald trump understands that he made a commitment, and he's going to deliver on that commitment, and i just have to tell you. from my own experience, he gets it.
he understands where we're at, and i think he wants to really deliver and he wants to be a great president. >> a couple of things, your name has been mentioned as a potential chief of staff in the white house and regular a role in the white house, is that a discussion that's happened, number one? do you feel the trump team is read they the transition work has begun in earnest and they'll be able to take the reins. >> first of all, no conversation about that. none. >> your own future. >> from our viewpoint, we're not part of the transition team, but between the rnc and the campaign, nothing. but those are the things that we have to slow down on. this has been three or four hours. i think you and i are going on the same amount of sleep. >> yes, we are. >> mine was by accident, by falling asleep on a chair and then getting ready for this interview, but i think what you're seeing from donald trump and that team is just to be
calm, measured, deliver a very, very mature voice to the world and that's what you saw last night in his speech. >> do you want a role in the trump administration? >> honestly, i know people say it can't be possible, i haven't thought about it, and right now i'm chairman of the party. i'm excited about that job. we delivered on what we promised which was the supporter nominee like we've never done before, but donald trump himself made this happen and the american people made this happen and we are just a small part of it. >> high praise for you last night, reince priebus. thank you for being up early and you haven't slept and you're with us this morning. appreciate it. >> up next, good-bye new york, hello washington. an inside look at president-elect trump's for his family when he moves into the white house, but first, these messages.

avenue soon. donald trump will be the 45th president. his family set to replace the obamas in the white house come january and nbc's cynthia mcfadden is here with a look at the trump first family. good morning. >> good morning. well, of course, as donald trump starts his family has been the centerpiece of his campaign from his wife melania and daughter ivanka reaching out to women voters to his son-in-law jared kushner as one of his closest advisers and one question, what will his family's roles be in the new trump white house. >> want to thank my family very much. >> reporter: celebrating his win president-elect trump was once again flanked by his close-knit family, all critical players in his campaign. >> his wife, melania trump the first foreign-born first lady since john quincy adams' wife luisa. melania, a former supermodel turned reluctant political wife. >> and i have been aware of his
love for this country since we first met. >> reporter: she retreated from the spotlight after being criticized for inadvertently lifting parts of her rnc speech from michelle obama. in the final days of trump's campaign, melania made a rare appearance to promote one of her agendas as first lady, protecting children against cyber bullying. >> we have to find a better way to talk to each other. >> reporter: it, too, guarded criticism regarding her husband's insult-laden campaign. melania will be first mother to their 10-year-old son barron. he is the same age as malia obama when her family moved into the white house. as for trump's other children, he's hinted at a possible cabinet position for his 35-year-old daughter ivanka, one of his closest advisers. >> he will fight for equal pay, for equal work, and i will fight for this, too, right alongside of him. >> i can tell you everybody would say put ivanka in. put ivanka in. she's very popular and she's done very well. >> reporter: another possible
member of his administration, ivanka's husband, real estate developer jared kushner, a chief adviser on trump's campaign reportedly responsible for his social media strategy. trump has said if elected he'd separate himself from his real estate company by turning over control to his sons, 38-year-old donald junior and 32-year-old eric. >> i have ivanka and eric and don sitting there. run the company, kids. have a good time. the real estate mogul's new business, being commander in chief. >> of course, if i vafrpga is not recruited for her father's administration, she will help run the trump organization with her brothers. now having the kids run the company would not constitute a blind trust, but that is perfectly legal. the president is not obliged like some members of the cabinet, the treasury secretary by way of example to separate himself from his company. >> just to reiterate your point, if the kids run the company none of the kids can have anything to do in an administration, is that
correct? >> that's probably what the -- this is new territory, but the president is not obliged to separate himself so they couldn't be treasury secretary, that much we know. >> cynthia, thank you very much. >> coming up, how the rest of the world is reacting this morning to one of the biggest political stunners in history, but first, these messages. this . ...one store is the store ...to get your romantic on. get your appreciation on. and get your unexpected on. kay jewelers. where right now, you'll save up to 30% on select ...diamonds in rhythm... stunning diamond fashions. ...and this charmed memories gift set. so go to kay... the number one jewelry store in america... ...and get your kiss on. ♪ every kiss begins with kay.

♪ ♪ coming up, shocker, donald trump pulls off the biggest upset in modern political history beating hillary clinton handily. the president-elect holding an early-morning rally in front of friends, family and supporters calling for the nation to come together after a brutal campaign. >> working together we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the american dream. >> his opponent hillary clinton calling him overnight to concede and failing to address the nation. what's next for the billionaire businessman turned 45th president of the united states, and how will the democrats
recover from the brutal loss as republicans sweep to victory in the house and the senate and now the white house. we've got reaction from across the nation and around the world tuesday wednesday, november 9, 2016. and welcome back to "today." 8:00 out on the west coast. you know how after the holidays it sometimes takes a while to get used to saying the new year. >> yes. >> it will gtake a while to say president lett donald trump. >> we have president-elect trump's reaction to the stunning victory overnight and in just a minute we will hear from hillary clinton for the first time since the defeat. the white house has announced president obama will speak in the next hour or so, as well. nbc news, of course, will bring you both of those speeches live. >> you were seeing video inside the room where secretary clinton will speak and one of the people was getting ready for the press there. first, let's focus in on the results. >> nbc news has trump with 279 electoral votes.
we expect him to pick up more as the dust finally settles in arizona, michigan and new hampshire. >> a different story, though, in the popular vote. look at this, hillary clinton has that lead. it's actually been expanding throughout the morning. the margin now stands at more than 160,000 votes in her favor. >> president-elect trump will enter the white house with republicans in control of congress after the gop managed to hang on to the senate. >> our political team is lined up and ready to break it down and let's start with kristen welker. she's at the new yorker hotel where hillary clinton is about to speak. >> we expect that secretary clinton will strike a note of unity when she addresses the nation and her supporters here in manhattan later today and she'll start to begin the process of helping this country heal after what's been a bitter, divisive, ugly battle over the past 19 months. what is striking is that she didn't address her supporters last night.
thousands gathered at the javits center. instead, they heard from her campaign chairman who told them to wait until every vote had been cast and we learned she conceded to donald trump. the question is why? her campaign hasn't given an official reason and having covered this campaign from the very first stop, i think they were quite frankly, stunned. i think secretary clinton was stunned. i think they felt confident headed into the night and they weren't expecting this stinging defeat. just a bit of a scene setter here. i can tell you that her supporters, her volunteers and her staffers have been streaming into this hotel. many of them with tears in their eyes. many of them saying they are just beginning to absorb the fact that secretary clinton lost. they thought she was poised to make history, and instead she is going to deliver a concession speech here in just a matter of moments. matt? savannah? >> we'll keep an eye on your shot, crist en, thanks very much. >> let's head to trump tower and that's where national
correspondent peter alexander is this morning. good morning. >> reporter: matt and savannah, good morning to you. the congratulations are pouring in and we heard from a spokesman from george h.w. bush, bush 41 did make a warm and gracious call to donald trump just a matter of hours ago that the two spoke and that bush congratulated him and also wished him good luck as he goes forward on this new challenge. we also heard about a congratulations coming from john kasich tweeting that a short time ago and kasich a rival of trump's throughout the course of this campaign season, the primary season, as well. but let's make no mistake, this was a political earthquake. we are still feeling the aftershocks this morning and it was seismic and it was sweeping, the victory. white working-class voters overwhelmingly voting in support of donald trump. i spoke to a top official who is watching the results late last night inside trump tower alongside trump and this source tells me that even they were stunned, that they always thought this was going to be
close. they felt good about what their performance would be and they certainly did not think they would win. donald trump as we noted, also received a phone call from the president and the two speaking briefly. president obama will make a statement today and he has invited donald trump to the white house tomorrow. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander here in midtown, as well. peter, thank you. >> the republicans held on to their slim majority in the u.s. senate including a landslide victory in wisconsin for house speaker paul ryan. he, of course, will preside over the house and we expect to hear from him any moment, as well. nbc's kelly o'donnell standing by in ryan's hometown of jamesville, wisconsin. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah and matt. this is where paul ryan will make his first real comments about his sweeping victory for donald trump and republicans last night. it was expected that ryan would talk about a way forward with whatever president he'll be working with and he will have a republican partner and one that he's had a tense relationship
with. he identified trump's comments during the campaign as racist and he has talked about the wrong tone, would not defend some of the things that donald trump said and did, but he did vote for him and today he will embrace him. i am told by certain aides that he will also really talk about the importance of the kind of victory that donald trump had, the groundswell of important energy from voters that he believes republicans in washington should respect and consider as they try to move forward. it will be an all-republican washington and there will be an expectation that they must get things done. i am also told speaker ryan will wait if hillary clinton is still speaking before the scheduled time that he is supposed to get going here. some unexpected results in ryan world, but it's a new reality for the house speaker who has a big job and now a republican partner to do that. savannah, matt? >> a lot of moving pieces and we'll keep our eye on all of the different news conferences we're expecting. >> we have chuck todd.
chuck, when it comes to the relationship with donald trump and paul ryan, what a long, strange trip it's been. kelly just talked about what she thinks ryan might say today. what does he need to say? >> think he does need to respect donald trump's hold on his supporters, that this is a different republican coalition. it's not one that republicans thought they would be able to put together and make it a winning message, and so i think that the smart thing to do is for ryan to pay -- almost pay some homage to trump that hey, you tapped into something that none of us, none of us in the republican party tapped into. we need to respect that and we need give you your deference. i think if ryan says okay, you need to pass my agenda and that's not the way, and he's got to respect trump more than he wants to because there may be some more trump-supporting house members who think, you didn't help him so much, why should you be the speaker right now? >> let's talk about the fact
that we now have a washington that is controlled all three branches of government by republicans. there will be an expectation for them to get things done and also that they can get some things undone, mainly things in the president's legacy such as the health care law such as obamacare and the iran deal. what do you see as the items that might get checked off first. >> look, they have to tackle obamacare. this has been the great promise of their entire time. >> repeal and replace. >> they now have the ability to do it, but i'll tell you, the repeal is the easy part. writing this replace. i mean, ask the democrats what it's like when you now inform the country, here, we have written you a health care law because when they don't like it they blame you, not the insurance companies. when premiums went up we use dodd get mad at insurance companies and now when premiums went up they get mad at politicians. when you do a public/private thing they'll own health care
and this will be harder to do than they realize. >> you bring up the democrat, in the wake of this defeat who is the face of the democrats right now? >> right now it's still obama. i've seen some -- maybe michelle obama 2020, but the real sort of chuck schumer is the operational leader. he's the senate democratic leader and he'll be the operational leader and it's bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. that is the part of the party that's on the rise and if you're bernie sanders, look at those states she lost, michigan, casey hunt, our colleague pointed this out earlier, the rust belt states that she struggled in and lost were states that she struggled in or lost against bernie sanders in the primary. >> these were states that she spent precious little time and seemed to take for granted. >> it's not just that. i was trading messages with someone from obama '08 and who noted that the turnout was abysmal. look, she did not put together the obama coalition and that is, we talked about this i think a
million times already. she didn't have a message that resonated with african-americans and millennials other than not trump. not trump, we saw john kerry run a campaign that was not bush. that can get you so far, and look, this is a close race and she'll win the popular vote, but not enough. >> she didn't put together the coalition of obama, but obama was a rare event in politics. >> and i think that's the lesson you want to know what we and our handicapping business, that's the lesson we need to take away. that wasn't a new democratic coalition, that was just unique to him. >> chuck, thank you very much. just ahead, what will a trump administration look like? who will fill his cabinet? we'll talk more about that. plus the world was watching and now it's reacting. the strong opinions pouring in from all over the globe. >> and hillary clinton's concession speech coming up, but first, these messages.

♪ we're back. 8:15. democracy plaza right there. when donald trump is sworn in as president early next year he will be a true outsider, the first with no government or military experience. >> but throughout the campaign he made big promises about what he hopes to accomplish when he's in the white house. nbc's hallie jackson joins us again with more on that. hallie, good morning. >> good morning to you both. now that we know who will be in the oval office come january the question is what will donald trump do once he gets there so we dove into what he promised for his first hundred days and who might be his closest advisers and what other republicans who never backed trump could do now? >> ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement made up of millions of hardworking men and women. >> reporter: donald trump declaring victory in his unprecedented run for the white house. >> you'll be so proud of your
president. >> reporter: the non-traditional candidate now getting his chance to make good on some of those campaign promises starting on day one. >> that begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as obamacare. >> on day one we will begin working on an impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall. >> when we win, we will suspend the syrian refugee program. >> a trump administration will stop the horrible, horrible, horrible transpacific partnership. we will renegotiate nafta and we are going to stand up to china's currency manipulation. >> we pass massive tax reform to create millions of new jobs and lower taxes for everyone. >> we're going to end the government corruption and we're
going to drain the swamp in washington, d.c. >> reporter: and along with the promises, a threat to his now-former rival during the second presidential debate trump saying he'd seek to investigate hillary clinton over her email controversy. >> if i win, i am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. >> reporter: how will president trump work with his party's leadership? >> i know this election has taken some dark, sometimes some very dark turns. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan reluctant to -- this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> and good morning again, everyone. this is an nbc news special report. house speaker paul ryan is speaking about the stunning results of last night's election. >> i want to congratulate greg walton and the team at the nrcc and the entire house leadership
team. what a phenomenal job. look at it this way, our house majority is bigger than expect period we won more seats than anyone expected and much of that is thanks to donald trump. donald trump provided the kind of coattails that got a lot of people over the finish line so that we could maintain our strong house and senate majorities. now we have important work to do. many months ago republicans in the house united around a bold, specific agenda for this country. it offers a better way forward for america and it would help us hit the ground running as we work with donald trump to do this. we will honor the timeless principles that our country was founded on, liberty, freedom, free enterprise, consent of the governed, and we will apply those principles to the problems of the day. this is the kind of unified republican government that we set out to deliver. i want to close with this, there is no doubt our democracy could be very messy, and we do remain
a sharply divided country, but now as we do every four years, we have to work to heal the divisions of a long campaign. i think president-elect donald trump set the perfect tone last night for doing just this, and i know president obama and secretary clinton are committed to bringing the country together. this needs to be a time of redemption and not a time of recrimination. we all need to rededicate ourselves toward making america great and making it a more perfect union. with that, let me take your questions. >> kelly o. >> critical of donald trump, you said you could no longer defend him and today clearly you are embracing him. some of your colleagues were critical of you thinking you had not embraced donald trump enough during the campaign. is your relationship with the president-elect and your conservatives in the house intact? can it go forward? >> think our relationship is fine. i've spoken with donald twice in the last 18 hours.
we spoke last night and spoke again this morning and i spoke to my good friend mike pence, as well. we've hit the ground running and we're talking about getting our transitions working together. look, kelly, when i say seven out of ten americans don't like the direction the country is going. they just voted. i think what donald trump pulled off is an enormous political feat and he heard the voices that were out there that other people weren't hearing and he just earned a mandate and we now have a unified republican government. if you listened to us in the closing days of the campaign whether it was criss-crossing america or criss-crossing wisconsin, we were making an appeal to our fellow citizens and we did just that and that's why i'm excited about where we are. yeah? [ inaudible question ] >> we had great conversations about how we work together on the transition to work together. we are getting our schedules lined up to meet to flush out how we build our transition and
how we go forward and yes, i'm excited about our ability to work together. >> what do you say to voters in wisconsin and nationwide who were concerned about during this campaign. president-elect trump's about women and latinos. what do you say to people who are concerned? >> i'll say to wisconsinites what i said to wisconsinites before the election. look at the issues and look at the direction of the country and look at the direction we've been going and where we need to go and look at what a unified republican government can get you. i am proud of the fact that for the first time since 1984 wisconsin's ten electoral votes went to republicans. this is an enormous feat. frankly, you saw the marquette poll. charles, you saw it. donald trump turned this on its head. donald trump delivered the ten electoral votes and by the way, he helped elect a strong majority in the senate and a strong majority in the house. charles? >> you used the word mandate, you will repeal and replace obamacare, how quickly, how soon, what does it look like and what do you say to those folks
who just don't feel like he is going to be their president? >> i think after a tough campaign where people believe they were pitching so hard for one side or the other and the time is to heal and unify, this health care law, charles, is not a popular law. this is collapsing under its own weight and to your specific question about replacing and repealing obamacare, this congress, this house majority and this senate majority has demonstrated and proven we are able to pass that legislation and put it on the president's desk. the problem is president obama vetoed it and now we have president trump coming who is asking us to do this. so with unified republican government we can fix this. we can fix these problems. look, it's not just a health care law that we can replace because we now have shown the willingness and the ability to do it. there are so many more things that i'm excited about. think about the laid off coworkers who see relief coming. think about the farmers in wisconsin who are being harassed by the epa and the waters of the usa and think about the ranchers in the u.s. getting harassed by
the interior department or the laid off timber workers. there is relief coming. this is good for our country. this means that we can lift the oppressive weight of the regulatory state. we can restore the constitution. think about the conservative constitution respecting judges that will be nominated. this is -- >> we've been listening to paul ryan, speaking of the house in janesville, wisconsin, pledging to work together with him to replace a republican agenda and we have other news happening in new york. >> let's swing our camera to new york city where hillary clinton is moments away from addressing her defeat for the first time. we did not see her last night after donald trump won that stunning victory, and the senior staff has assembled in this hotel room in new york city and we expect her to be moments away. andrea mitchell is in the room. andrea, are you get anything insight as to what we might hear from secretary clinton? >> reporter: i think what you will hear is a promise to be
uplifting and to be hopeful and helpful. she talked to the president this morning and he called her -- he called her, i believe, savannah, and not the other way around, shortly after he spoke to donald trump. this room has been filled now with the staff, senior staff, joe crowley, the congressman who is so close to her and there were cheers moments ago when john podesta and jake sullivan and robby mook, the top staff members came in and there were shouts of "hillary, hillary" some of the people seated are longtime clinton friends, hillary clinton friends former diplomats and women friends who have traveled with her this long route who showed up on primary nights and who keep her cheered up when times were difficult along the way. so this is a gathering of hillaryland, if you will. a lot of them go back as ann stock does to the social secretary from the east wing when she was first lady. this is a team of friends and of
allies that have long been involved in the project of hillary clinton becoming t of the united states. bill clinton will be here, as well, savannah and matt. so you're going to hear, i think a sad, but grateful hillary clinton today thanking supporters. >> andrea, stand by for a second. we have chuck todd in the du studio. how hard a speech is this going to be? >> she's done it before after losing to barack obama. this one's different. i've heard that this was hard to take. she really believed she was going to be the next president of the united states, and it was a -- i think, i -- i don't think my -- my guess is she's probably not ready to give this speech, but for the country she has to give this speech. >> this contrasts where they were 24 hours ago. the mood inside the clinton campaign was jubilant, celebratory. >> i mean, look what they picked
and they even created the big javits center which is on the west side of the glass ceiling. they threw in symbolism and they had katy perry ready to sing, lady gaga, cher, it was -- by the way, it's, like -- and as the elites were celebrating, look what happened with people. it is sort of -- when you look at it in hindsight, what a contrast. >> there are some long faces. those are top, top staffers of hillary clinton who have been on the road with her, both the secretary of state -- >> kerry mcauliffe's campaign in virginia, jake sullivan and robby is right next to him there, right behind him. he was on the '08 campaign and he's basically been planning her run for the presidency for eight years. >> as has she, we might add. >> yes. >> it's a moment, and i think one of the ironies here, chuck, is that there was such a big
dust-up during the campaign after the debate when donald trump said he wasn't sure he would concede the election and so there became a lot of talk about what a graceful concession looks like and the peaceful transfer of power, if you're a fan of irony here it is because hillary clinton is now having to deliver that very thing. >> by the way, consider this, this may be the last major speech that we hear a clinton give as sort of as a head or as one of the heads of the democratic party. >> it's funny you say that because we all talked about if donald trump had lost this election, what kind of coverage would we give to him in the months and years ahead? so the question is what kind of profile does hillary clinton have? >> i think -- i think the democratic party has a history of this. when you lose, good-bye, and that happened to dukakis. that happened -- john kerry sort of recovered thanks to barack obama, but it happened to walter mondale. i think it's going to happen to her. i think they're moving in a
different direction. >> by the way, the clinton foundation took some serious hits during this campaign, came in for a lot of scrutiny, and what does that look like in the future? that has been the clinton family work for the last 15, 16 years. >> there's no shortage of democrats who were ever in clinton world who looked at the history of the clintons and said you know what? the clintons have succeeded, but the democratic party hasn't always succeeded with them. bill clinton, both times he was on the ballot, democratic party lost senate seat, you know? she actually gained a senate seat last night on behalf of the party, but look at this, the party is a mess. >> chuck, do you have any insight -- i guess we can all assume and read the tea leaves but why it is last night that john podesta comes out and says we'll have more to say tomorrow and within the hour she calls and concedes to donald trump. >> it's my understanding where her head was at, and i'll just leave it at that.
>> not that they necessarily thought that there was more vote to count, but -- >> she wasn't quite ready to do this. not quite ready. this was apparently supposed to happen earlier this morning and it's been steadily delayed, you know, 15, 20 minutes at a time. >> this is, you know, this -- >> people forget politicians are human beings, too. >> this might be it, you know? this is -- this is sort of the period at the end of the political career here. it's a tough thing to do. my guess is the weight of the moment has hit her in some ways where the weight of the moment hasn't hit that crowd. and if you've talked to candidates who have run for office, obviously, they feel it personally, but they'll look at the sea of people who poured their lives into a campaign and poured their hopes. >> jennifer palmery has worked
for the clintons since 1996. >> and even though the mood there is incredibly somber and all you have to do is look at the images, i can assume she'll get a rousing ovation when she walks into the room. >> the personal loyalty the staff had for her was tighter than personal loyalty i remember for the staff and bill. it was interesting. hillary world is slightly different than bill world, and they look up to her in ways differently than that clinton crowd looks up to bill. it's just different. there is a connectivity to her. >> you almost have to say it, this looks like a wake. >> and when they do the forensics check and they look at the campaign that was, i mean, before the results came everyone was saying, wow, what a well-executed campaign this was. the results certainly throw that into a different light. >> there's a -- unfortunately, the uncomfortable part of the three months has been this
wikileaks and it got normalized in our system and it was john podesta's emails and i'll tell you what wikileaks did is it gave you a picture and they couldn't find a message. we saw how they were searching for a message and how she was going to connect with the democratic party that was going to move to her left. >> time kaine, we understand, will be introducing secretary clinton. he also loses in this effort. what's his future? >> this is the first election he's lost. you know, he has a very successful career, and a lot of people believed that he could -- he could be one of the leaders of the party. i -- i think he takes a hit on this one. i think he steps back. he is still from virginia. virginia is still a pretty good state to build a potential base from. i do think he has his own presidential ambitions, so i wouldn't be surprised if time kaine shows up in iowa or new hampshire. we'll start seeing that soon, you know? that happens.
the party out of power, you know, you guys laugh, but it will probably be in january. >> it's not that we don't believe you, we're not ready for it. >> 1400 days away to 2020. matt asked this question of you earlier, it's worth discussing again as you look at what may be one of the final political appearances, who is the head of the democratic party? right now obviously president obama, but who is the future of the democratic party? >> chuck schumer is in operational control and he's senate leader and he is the guy that on capitol hill that stands up to trump or tries to hold up the agenda or fights for -- you know, basically playing to the base a bit and preparing democrats for the midterms. >> let's take a look at who's coming in. >> huma abedin, of course, her top aide and never far from her side. where huma is obviously secretary clinton can't be far
behind, as well and we do expect president clinton to be in attendance although we don't expect him to speak, and as i think matt, you mentioned, time kaine will introduce hillary clinton and -- >> i would imagine. >> you will see a fight to see what runs the democratic party. it's a campaign night. >> time kaine and anne holt, his wife taking the podium. >> thank you so much. my wife anne and i are so
proud of hillary clinton. i am proud of hillary clinton because she has been and is a great history maker in everything she has done as a civil rights lawyer and the first lady of arkansas and first lady of this country and senator and secretary of state, she has made history in a nation that is good at so many thing, but has made it uniquely difficult for a woman to be elected to federal office, she became the first major party nominee, as a woman to be president and last night won the popular vote of americans. that is an amazing accomplishment.
it is an amazing accomplishment. i am proud of hillary clinton because in the words of langston yuw she's held fast to dreams and she was inspired at a young age an epiphany if families and children do well, a society does well and in everything she's done she's focused on that. we know she would have made history as president in one sense, but we've never had a president who has made their whole career about empowerment and children and i was excited in the office and as i was to have my friend hillary there. i'm excited and proud of hillary because she has built such a wonderful team. there is a -- there is a beautiful and kind of comical parable in the new testament
about a vineyard owner who hires people to work and he says i'll pay you this for a full day and then he hires people at noon, and say i'll pay you the same and those who started earlier in the day said hold on, we don't like this that you're treating everybody who came late just as well as you're treating us. i'll tell you something, here's what i've come to know so well about hillary, the team that she has assembled over the years of people who are so deeply loyal to her because she's so deeply loyal to them is inspiring, but i've seen that same degree of loyalty and compassion and sensitivity extended to the most recent folks who joined the team, the folks who came to the vineyard with just one hour to go. her loyalty and compassion of hillary and bill to people, if you're with you, you're with you, and that is something so remarkable and finally, i'm proud of hillary because she loves this country.
nobody -- nobody -- nobody had to wonder about hillary clinton whether she would accept an outcome of an election in our beautiful democracy. nobody had to ask that question. nobody had to doubt it. she knows our country for what it is. she knows the system that we have and its warts and blemishes. she's deeply in love with it and accepts it. she's been in battles before where if it didn't go her way she accepted and and woke up the next day and battled again for the dreams she's held fast to and the love of country is obvious to everybody and obvious to everyone. i want to thank hillary clinton for asking anne and i to join this wild ride. we, about a week before she asked if i would be her running mate, anne and i went up to westchester and we sat down with hillary and bill and with chelsea and mark and with
charlotte and aden for about three hours of conversation to try to determine whether we would be the right people to be on the ticket and when we got in the car to head back to the airport after the three-hour discussion ied to anne, honey, i don't know whether we'll be on the ticket or not, i'll tell you this, we'll remember that three hours for the rest of our life and now we'll remember the 105 days that we've had with this fantastic couple of servants and with you for the rest of our life. i'll say this, hillary and i know well the wisdom and words of william faulkner. they say they killed us, but they ain't whooped us yet. they killed us, but they ain't whooped us yet. because -- because -- because we know. we know that the work remains.
we know that the dreams of empowering families and children remain and in that work, that important work that we have to do as a nation, it is so comforting even at a tough time to know that hillary clinton is somebody until her very last breath is going to be battling for the values that make this nation great and the values that we care so deeply about. so please join me in welcoming secretary hillary rodham clinton. >> thank you.
>> thank you all. thank you. thank you all very much. thank you. thank you. thank you so much. a very rowdy group. thank you, my friends. thank you. thank you. thank you so very much for being here -- and i love you all, too. last night i congratulated donald trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. i hope that he will be a successful president for all americans.
this is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and i am sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country, but i feel -- i feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together, this vast, diverse, creative, unruly, energized campaign. you represent the best of america and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life. i -- i know how disappointed you feel because i feel it, too. and so do tens of millions of americans who invested their
hopes and dreams in this effort. this is painful, and it will be for a long time, but i want you to remember this. our campaign was never about one person or even one election. it was about the country we love, and about building an america that's hopeful, inclusive and bighearted. we have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought, but i still believe in america, and i always will, and if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power, and we don't just respect that, we cherish it.
it also enshrines other things. the rule of law, the principle that we are all equal in rights and dignity, freedom of warship and expression. we respect and cherish these values, too, and we must defend them. >> now -- and let me add, our constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years, but all the time. so let's do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear, making our economy work for everyone and not just those at the top, protecting our country and protecting our planet and breaking down all of the
barriers that hold any american back from achieving their dreams. we've spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the american dream is big enough for everyone, for people of all races and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for lgbt people and people with disabilities. for everyone. >> so now our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build that better, stronger, fairer america we seek, and i know you will. i am so grateful to stand with all of you.
i want to thank time kaine and anne holton for being our partners on this journey. it has been a joy getting to know them better, and it gives me great hope and comfort to know that tim will remain on the front lines of our democracy representing virginia in the senate. >> to barack and michelle obama, our country owes you an enormous debt of gratitude.
>> we -- we thank you for your graceful, determined leadership that has meant so much to so many americans and people across the world, and to bill and chelsea, mark, charlotte, aden, our brothers and our entire family, my love for you means more than i can ever express. you criss-crossed this country on our behalf and lifted me up when i needed it most even 4-month-old aden who traveled with his mom, i will always be grateful. to the creative, talented, dedicated men and women at our headquarters in brooklyn and
across our country. >> you poured your hearts into this campaign. for some of you who are veterans, it was a campaign after you had done other campaigns. some of you, it was your first campaign. i want each of you to know that you were the best campaign anybody could have ever expected or wanted. >> and to the millions of volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to neighbors, posted on facebook even in secret, private facebook sites, i want everybody coming out from behind that and make sure your voices are heard going
forward. >> to everyone who sent in contributions as small as $5 and kept us going, thank you. thank you from all of us. and to the young people in particular, i hope you will hear this, i have as tim said, spent my entire adult life fighting for what i believe in. i've had successes, and i've had setbacks. sometimes really painful ones. many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. you will have successes and setbacks, too. this loss hurts, but please, never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it.
>> now -- i -- i know -- i know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. >> and to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.
finally, -- finally, i am so grateful for our country and for all it has given to me. i count my blessings every single day that i am an american, and i still believe as deeply as i ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strength in our convictions and love for this nation our best days are still ahead of us. >> because, you know, i believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. and you should never, ever regret fighting for that.
you know, scripture tells us let us not grow weary in doing good for in due season we shall reap if we shall not lose heart. so, friends, let us have faith in each other. let us not grow weary and let us not lose heart. i am incredibly honored and grateful for having had this chance to represent all of you in this con sequential election. may god bless you and may god bless the united states of america. >> hillary clinton speaking to supporters and friends and family members here in new york city, composed, gracious, eloquent, hopeful, saying that she hopes donald trump is a president for all americans and saying we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. >> you have to wonder if she had a lump in her throat a few moments in that speech.
it can't have been easy to give. it's not the speech, chuck, that she thought she would, but having talked so much about the peaceful transfer of power, a graceful concession she showed what that looks like. >> she's done it twice. twice she's had to give these gut-wrenching concession speeches and the first one with barack obama and this one ten times rougher than the one she did in '08. she hit every note. she hit every single note that anybody would have wanted her to give whether you're a trump supporter or a clinton supporter, whether you're president obama or president-elect trump. she hit every note just right. >> a lot of tears in that room although none from secretary clinton. >> she got close. >> a couple of moments. the only thing you could consider to be a slight dig came
from time kaine kaine and no oo wonder whether she would accept the outcome of that election and a direct reference to donald trump in the closing weeks of this campaign. >> i guess it's a little dig. i might have not done it in a moment like this. i would have saved that for maybe the interview with "the new york times" or something. >> he got a lot of applause when he pointed out she won the popular vote. >> nancy pelosi put out her statement. she's still head of the house democrats and she brought up this and said because he won the electoral college and she won the popular vote he's got to vote in this outreach and i like this infrastructure plan. she actually, to me said, okay, she threw her cards down and said okay, i'll try to work with him. >> it occurred to me in watching this that the clintons have seen political phenomena from both directions. bill clinton was one himself all those years ago and hillary clinton lost to one in barack
obama and she loses to donald trump. >> you missed one. >> which one? >> ross perot. >> and some would argue bill clinton was the beneficiary of that phenomenon and the double irony is that bill clinton, he did connect to the donald trump voter. the donald trump voter of 2016 was a bill clinton voter in 1996. >> we talked about that with james carville who is the old clinton hand. >> and he admitted last night when we asked him that, how much has this bothered bubba. >> to lose that vote. >> he started, like, oh, i don't know how much i want to tell essentially. it bigs him. >> i thought there was an interesting part in what she just said in talking about being disappointed in not being able to break that glass ceiling at this level and spent the next minute or so speaking to young girls in this country encouraging them not to be disheartened by that failure and encouraging them to go out and attempt to do anything they can do because that is a -- and i'll tell you an anecdote. we've been in our office today
and there have been some young ladies in tears because they're disappointed this didn't happen for hillary clinton this time, and i don't think that had anything to do with politics. >> eight years ago, my then daughter said something oh, girls can't be president after she saw that hillary clinton lost to barack obama, and i immediately got this book called "grace for president." it's a terrific book about a girl running for class president and it teaches you about the electoral college, by the way. the 10, 11, 12, 13-year-old girls. they didn't see democrat or republican, they saw another girl. they saw a girl and my daughter has that placemat that's all men. so this was a -- the presidents' placemat and there was a connectivity and you would hear from the campaign especially with adolescent girls. >> well, she certainly has given a path for her supporters to continue the work that's important to them, but as matt
mentioned, i think one of the most telling lines from her speech is when she said we owe to donald trump our open minds and a chance to lead, and i think in terms of her political opponent i think that's about the best you can hope. >> it's the american way. >> it's the american way and the right thing to do. >> the people have spoken. respect the people. >> and she had to do this because remember, during that last debate when donald trump would not commit to accepting what she's called it, horrific. that is horrific and so she clearly stuck by her words in this. you know, there are tears now, i can see. now that she's greeting people on a one-on-one basis, it seems a little more difficult. where does she go now? chuck, what happens? >> i assume that she throws herself into the foundation a little bit. that's something that became such a controversial thing, but i think she's never really pursued that.
i doubt she does another book. i've got to think she's got no more books in her on that front. >> don't forget she loves to talk about being a grandmother and when she was toying with the idea about whether to run she did talk about, you know, it might be nice to just be a grandma to these little kids, and as we all know that could be an enormous comfort. >> campaigns up end lives and i'm looking at huma aberdeen in the foreground here and you have to stop at this moment and talk about what has happened in her life over the last year or so. >> and her north star was hillary clinton, and that north star is not there. >> no. >> i mean, that's -- that is a tough position. look, that is -- having your marriage that public, nobody -- nobody wants that. >> we've now heard from secretary hillary clinton. we've heard from the speaker of the house and the los of statements coming in and there is another voice that we expect
to hear, president obama will address the election results from the white house. nbc news will have live coverage, as well. >> right now we'll return to your regularly scheduled programming. this morning on "today's take" donald trump stunning the nation and the world with a historic victory. what happens next. dr. oz unveiling his step-by-step plan to prevent and reverse wrinkles. plus look at how you work out. the hottest looks in athleisure wear coming up right now. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning, november 9th, 2016. i'm al along with tamron and dylan. i'm still chuckling over our open. with this momentous election of any generation probably and we're going to help you with
wrinkles. >> people care about wrinkles. >> but also life goes on. i was just doing the hit on the social media and the reaction from people. they kept saying when is this going to happen. when is this election. it's happened and you realize that you've still got to get up with your children, you still have to look forward to the birth of your child. there's halloween next year and costumes. we try to figure out who we are. it's democracy. >> 16 years ago we had a split between the popular vote and electoral college. we look at the latest results and we're seeing right now that as we look at democracy plaza, even though donald trump leads -- obviously has won the electoral college, in the popular vote, hillary clinton is winning. >> currently, we've not finalized those numbers but a lot of people went to bed, it was a very long night. there was some predictions that it was going to be early depending on how florida went. that was not true. the polling, all of this
information we've been chewing on 20 months was basically inaccurate. it was a historic victory for donald trump. look at the headlines from the papers, "the daily news." >> they're all over the place. >> they're all over the place but point in one direction, a victory for donald trump last night. people woke up this morning, you know, social media, what just happened? >> well, i was watching everything last night and then around 11:30 i'm like, all right, i'm going to bed because clearly this isn't going to -- there's no answer right away. and then i kept dreaming that -- it was like when you forecast a big snowstorm and you just keep dreaming like it's not snowing or it is snowing. it's just weird. i had all these dreams. then i woke up and checked my phone. oh, okay. i had no idea what was going on but my mind was going crazy. >> and you look not just here, but the response around the world, incredible. let's take -- el periodico. then you've got liberation,
tru trumppocalypse. and "people" magazine's new cover out, president trump. >> what does this victory mean not just for donald trump, of course, but for the general public? you have now the senate and the house controlled by republicans. this is the first time someone who's never held office, he never served in the military, will now lead this country. he gave that victory speech. 2:50 a.m. local time. after receiving a concession call from secretary clinton. >> now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. we have to get together. to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as one united
people. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will bow president for all americans, and this is so important to me. for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of 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. it's been what they call a historic event, but to be really historic, we have to do a great job. and i promise you that i will not let you down. we will do a great job. we will do a great job. >> there you have it. a very subdued speech. one tinged with humility. so one has to -- look, at the end of the day you want the president to succeed because then we all succeed.
>> just a little factoid, melania trump now becomes the first foreign-born first lady since louisa adams. the question is also what role will his daughter, ivanka trump, play. he said the company will be in a blind trust. this is all new territory for this country to have a president who has a privately held company. melania trump said that she wanted to focus in on cyberbullying and some of the things that are happening on social media. >> and of course as you look forward, now president-elect trump has laid out a very ambitious first 100 days. he talked about repealing and replacing obamacare. of course as we know building that wall along the southern border, ripping up current trade deals. also nominating conservative justices for the supreme court and of course the total ban of -- he called for a total and complete shutdown of muslims
entering the united states until we can figure out what's going on. >> it's going to be an extraordinary event also for house speaker paul ryan who said he voted for donald trump but refused to campaign with him. very few republicans who were running for re-election or office campaigned with him. he had very few celebrities. the party was divided against him and it was in some ways political analysis, donald trump against the world. >> yeah. >> if you look at the fact that a lot of republicans chose not to align themselves at least publicly with him. >> well, you look at what happened, i mean the two outsiders who made the biggest amount of noise, donald trump and bernie sanders. and in certain ways, they were very sympatico as far as the people that they tapped into. that makes you wonder like how did these polls get it so wrong? there was a whole group of people -- i think there were a lot of people who were a little nervous about saying they were for donald trump publicly.
>> trump always said that he had secret support. he had people who in polite company, as they call it in the cable news world, did not want to admit it. women, educated women particularly. so we don't know. we'll still look at the analysis of it. but this is the second election cycle where polls were completely off kilter. other than nate silver. >> and i don't really understand who they tap into. >> apparently they don't understand either because they were wrong. >> see, when we blow a forecast, everybody is -- it's not so easy now, is it, pollsters? >> meteorologists get all the grief when they get it wrong and not the pollsters. >> you could see all the pundits just like -- welcome to our world. >> nate silver, though -- >> we have science to back up why something might have changed. >> nate silver says he has science behind it. he's a very, very popular pollster if you follow him on his blog. he adjusted some models last
week and it basically said he had given democrats cardiac arrest by these models because he actually said this is not right. and so he uses a scientific formula and it turns out he was on it. >> i think the three people who -- this morning waking up and what are they thinking. i think for donald trump, president-elect trump, it's like the enormity of it is settling in. obviously for hillary clinton, what happened. and i have to think president obama. >> yeah, he put it all on the line. >> take a listen to what he talked about with matt back in january. >> do you feel you're responsible for a certain hunger out there for the message that donald trump is putting out? >> the message that donald trump is putting out has had adherence a lot of times during the course of our history. you know, talk to me if he wins, then we'll have a conversation about how responsible i feel about it. >> when you stand and deliver that state of the union address
a in no part of your mind or brain can you imagine donald trump standing up one day and delivering a state of the union address? >> well, i can imagine it in a saturday night skit. look, anything is possible, and i think we shouldn't be complacent. i think everybody has got to work hard. >> i want you to focus, because the choice you face when you step into that voting booth could not be clear. donald trump is temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief. >> ironically "saturday night live" became such a big part of the national discussion. when we come back, not only will we talk about what does it mean for hillary clinton's future, but we're also going to hear from alec baldwin, who talked about what it would mean if donald trump wins for his acting career. i've got more at progresso, we are passionate about our art. and our art is chicken soup. which is why we are now using 100% antibiotic and hormone free

so we are back with more of "today's take." of course hillary clinton is not giving a concession speech last night, waiting until this morning. i guess there was a tweet? >> yeah, there was a tweet last night before the polls closed. she said this team has so much to be proud of whatever happens tonight. thank you for everything. and so it is, what does it mean for her. she's first lady, senator of new york, the secretary of state. >> politics is her identity. >> the first woman to lead a major political party. does she go back to a role with the clinton foundation. what does this mean? and really what does the conversation about gender in our politics, we still have not had a female president. >> i don't think it was -- i don't think people were saying i'm not ready for a female president. i think they just weren't ready for this female president. >> women voted, you know, again going back to the stats the way women voters went, but i do think there's always a
conversation, though, about gender, not necessarily voting against her but understanding some of the conversation that happens. i do have people who are tweeting in to us saying what do i tell my daughter, because no matter how this turned out, there are things that came up in the last 20 months that if you have a teenage daughter or son are complicated things to talk about. so that's just real tough. >> absolutely. wondering what this means for, obviously, the president-elect and hillary clinton and president obama. the other man affected by this or could be is alec baldwin, who did that spot-on donald trump impersonation. i was actually listening to brian on w nchnyc and he had aln as a guest. >> so is the run as trump over now or are you back on saturday night? >> i hope it's over. >> if he wins, you're back on?
>> if he wins, i would imagine there might be some opportunity for that, but i want my weekends back so i can go be with my kids. >> i'm going to miss kate mckinnon as hillary. i'm sure they'll still work her in. >> so does alec baldwin come back? how does that work once the election is over? it's such a blur to me. >> do you have the weather? >> that's right. no matter what happens, the sun always rises and always sets. and so in . . . e g for r weather. some wet weather making its way into the pacific northwest. there's a frontal system stretching from the gulf all the way on up into new england bringing some showers. nothing too horrible, that's the good news. look at the heat down in southern california, 90s there. 40s and 50s in the northeast. 60s in the mid-atlantic states. and we're going to be looking at unseasonably warm weather. record highs from the plains on into the central rockies. look for wet weather along the mid-atlantic states, into the northeast some showers and thunderstorms down through southern texas. and again we are going to see warm weather lasting throughout
the plains, midwest and on into the gulf coast and southeast right on toward the end o from the south bay, hazy sunshine after the patchy fog, 63 over in oakland and 50 in san francisco should see. san francisco into oakland and upper 70s and maybe even close to 80s south of downtown san jose, we are expecting a high of 77. a couple of mild days ahead, leading to a chance of some brief light rain friday night into early saturday. better chance of rain towards tuesday of next week. and that is your latest weather. did the election cause you to get a few more wrinkles, lose a little sleep? dr. oz will reveal his plan to help you reverse your wrinkles so we will all look like a baby's bottom. thank yo

here's lester holt. >> good day, everyone, from new york. we are standing by for the president. president obama to make a statement to the white house rose garden. these will be the president's first formal remarks since the country elected donald trump its 45th president at a stunning defeat of hillary clinton. let's take a look at the results. trump winning with 279 electoral college votes to 228 for clinton. even though clinton is ahead in the popular vote by a margin of just under 200,000. a short time ago, we heard from clinton and her first public remarks about the election. she spoke to her supporters and staff at a hotel here in new york. she said she hopes donald trump will be a successful president for all americans. >> we must accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.
and we don't just respect that, we cherish it. >> hillary clinton about an hour ago in new york. let's go to ron allen at the white house, as we await the president. ron wh ron, what do we any about the plans for the president to receive donald trump? >> we expect these to be brief remarks. here is the president now coming out of the oval office. >> good afternoon, everybody. yesterday before votes were tallied i shot a video that some of you may have seen in which i said to the american people regardless of which side you're on in the election, regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, the sun would come up in the morning. and that is one bit of prognosticating that actually came true. the sun is up. i know everybody had a long night. i did as well.
i had a chance to talk to president elect trump last night about 3:30 in the morning i think it was to congratulate him on winning the election and i had a chance to invite him to come to the white house tomorrow to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies. now, it is no secret that the president elect and i have some pretty significant differences. but, remember, eight years ago president bush and i had some pretty significant differences. but president bush's team could not have been more professional, or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running. and one thing he realized quickly in this job is that the presidency and the vice presidency is bigger than any of us. so i have instructed my team to follow the example that president bush's team set eight years ago and work as hard as we can to make sure that this is a
successful transition for the president elect. because we are now all rooting for his success, in uniting and leading the country. the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. and over the next few months we are going to show that to the world. i also had a chance last night to speak with secretary clinton and i just had a chance to hear her remarks. i could not be prouder of her. she has lived an extraordinary life of public service. she was a great first lady. she was an outstanding senator for the state of new york. and she could not have been a better secretary of state. i'm proud of her. a lot of americans look up to her. her candidacy and nomination was historic and sends a message to our daughters all across the country that they can achieve at
the highest levels of politics, and i am absolutely confident that she and president clinton will continue to do great work for people here in the united states and all around the world. now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election. but the day after we have to remember that we're actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we're not democrats first, we're not republicans first, we are americans first. we're patriots first. we all want what's best for this country. that's what i heard in mr. trump's remarks last night. that's what i heard when i spoke to him directly. and i was heartened by that. that's what the country needs.
a sense of unity, a sense of inclusion, a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law, and a respect for each other. i hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition, and i certainly hope that's how his presidency has a chance to begin. i also told my team today to keep their heads up, because the remarkable work that they have done, day in, day out, often without a lot of fanfare, often without a lot of attention, workiwork i in agencies, work in obscure areas of policy that make government run better, and make it more responsive, and make it more efficient and make it more
service friendly so that it is actually helping more people, that remarkable work has left the next president with a stronger, better country than the one that existed eight years ago. so win or lose, in this election, that was always our mission. that was our mission from day one. and everyone on my team should be extraordinarily proud of everything that they have done. and so should all the americans that i had a chance to meet all across this country who do the hard work of building on that progress every single day. teachers in schools, doctors and er clinic, small businesses putting their all into starting something up, making sure they're treating their employees well. all the important work that is done by moms and dads and
families and congregations and every state, the work of perfecting this union. so this was a long and hard fought campaign. a lot of our fellow americans are exalted today, a lot of americans are less so. but that's the nature of campaigns. that's the nature of democracy. it is hard and sometimes contentious and noisy. it is not always inspiring. but to the young people who got into politics for the first time, and may be disappointed by the results, i just want you to know you have to stay encouraged. don't get cynical. don't ever think you can't make a difference. as secretary clinton said this morning, fighting for what is
right is worth it. sometimes you lose an argument. sometimes you lose an election. the path this country has taken has never been a straight line. we zig and zag and sometimes we move in ways that some people think is forward and others think is moving back. and that's okay. i've lost elections before. joe hasn't. but, you know. so i've been sort of -- >> you beat me badly. >> that's the way politics works sometimes. we try really hard to persuade people that we're right. and then people vote. and then if we lose, we learn
from our mistakes, we do some reflection, we lick our wounds, we brush ourselves off, we get back in the arena. we go at it. we try even harder the next time. the point, though, is that we all go forward with the presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. that's how this country moved forward for 240 years. it is how we pushed boundaries and promoted freedom around the world, that's how we expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens, it is how we have come this far. and that's why i'm confident that this incredible journey that we're on as americans will go on. and i am looking forward to doing everything i can to make sure that the next president is
successful in that. i said before, i think of this job as being a relay runner. you take the baton, you run your best race, and hopefully by the time you hand it off, you're a little further ahead. you made a little progress. and i can say that we have done that and i want to make sure that handoff is well executed because ultimately we're all in the same team. all right. thank you very much, everybody. >> president taking no questions as he walks back into the white house. the president reflected there almost as if he is still grappling with the results and noting he was up at 3:30 in the morning with a conversation with president elect donald trump. chuck todd now joins me here in our election center. chuck, at moments there it sounded like the president was sketching out his own farewell address, the legacy question is going to be looming large now. >> it is. it is a conversation you don't
get the third -- the quote/unquote third term and, you know, the big pledge among the new republican majority, both in the house, the senate and the presidency is to repeal your signature domestic program. obamacare. so and health care. so i'm not surprised that there is a little bit in there, but i thought he hit -- he hit all the right notes. again, this is -- this is important moments in our democracy. he brought it up himself. the two of them do not -- it is personal. but that was important to the democracy, the people spoke, that was a president who respected the fact that the people spoke. >> the people spoke, he said, we're all on one team and he made a specific note of how he was -- how the transition went from the bush administration to his and wanting to follow that example. and speaking very quickly of president bush, a quick statement, he said this morning, i called president elect donald trump, congratulated him on his election, goes on to say laura
and i wish the president elect melania and the trump family all the best as they take on the responsibility and goes on a bit more. but that statement from george w. bush. to trump tower right now. peter alexander is standing by. we heard the president say he's invited president elect trump to the white house. do we know where that invitation stands and when it will be accepted? >> well, we don't know it has been formally accepted but i did hear from donald trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway, that told me donald trump does look forward to meeting with president obama at the white house. we assume that will take place tomorrow. what was striking is within the last few minutes we're hearing for the first time from donald trump's inner circle a response to what hillary clinton's remarks were, describing it as a very classy speech, saying that it was an important step in bringing this country together. it is worth noting right now that they just temporarily shut down fifth avenue in front of trump tower here as donald trump, now president elect, new york police and secret service
are trying to sort out the security that now surrounds this man, bringing in giant barricades with huge sand trucks that surround the place as well. this has been a striking scene all morning long. we have seen international journalists, of course, but also protesters and supporters of donald trump, the debate that was the force behind this whole campaign for so many months continues in this country. >> peter, thank you, to the white house one more time and check in again with ron allen. what has the mood been at the white house, have you observed this morning? >> like a funeral, lester. there are dozens of white house staffers who came out here in the rose garden to support the president and we see a lot of tears, a lot of hugging, a lot of trying to support each other and get their heads around what happened. i heard a very philosophical president obama talking about donald trump in a way he never had before. it was very striking but all about trying to keep the democracy going, take the high road, but what a difficult day for the president. >> ron allen at the white house. ron, thank you. we'll continue to watch reaction
to trump's election this afternoon, continuing coverage on msnbc and, of course, we'll be back with a complete wrap-up on "nbc nightly news."ss or irritation. i think it's better off in the evening. you can be by yourself and you're not going to have toxic effects of chemicals and the sun influencing the retinol. >> i do retinol monday, wednesday and friday. three days a week and at night is when i do it. monday, wednesday, friday at night. >> exfoliator? >> it's critical for a bunch of reasons. we talked about collagen. all of these change collagen levels. the retinols do it especially with higher doses but exfoliation does it as well. you could exfoliate at least once or twice a week. you don't have to spend a lot of money. all of these things you should do every day. i asked a question about what you should eat or apply. >> you said both. do both. >> this is an example of why that's so. take an avocado, which is healthy fats which the skin likes. it has a little roughness to it. all of the glycolic acids in the citrusy fruits and the berries
and the like, they have a little bit of ability to irritate your skin just the right amount so your skin responds in making more collagen to make that trampoline effect that we have. so go ahead, you may do the honors. >> what do you want me to do with it? >> just apply. >> on your face? >> the one thing -- >> i had one job. >> can you get some chips over here. >> what is this doing to you other than a mess? >> something called glycolic acid which is naturally present in a lot of foods. when you apply it to your face and leave it there for 10, 15 minutes, you're stimulating -- thank you very much -- glycolic acid, a reaction in the skin. you're also debriding a little old skin on the surface so it allows the younger skin to reflect light more accurately. that gives you that shine, that life, that body that you want your skin to have. >> after your show today, you're going to be appearing in
"wicked." >> like this. >> i love that. okay, we've got to get you cleaned up, dr. oz. be sure to watch dr. oz minus the avocado facial. food investigation on his show today. we're learning more about what to eat to get rid of these lines. from big movies like divergent and whiplash, miles divergent and whiplash, miles teller is pulling no punches i imy moderate to severeng crohn's disease. i didn't think there was anything else to talk about. but then i realized there was. so, i finally broke the silence with my doctor about what i was experiencing. he said humira is for people like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems,

yes, miles teller has been described as having the "it factor" as one of hollywood's fastest-rising stars. you know him from such blockbusters as "divergent" playing the role of peter and in its 2016 seeiquel. >> he was an ambitious young drummer in a 2014 film "whiplash." >> now he's in a true story of a boxing legend who sets out to make one of the most ambitious comebacks in sports history after breaking his neck in a near fatal car accident. >> i'm getting pretty sick of people talking about me like i'm dead. like i died in that car wreck. like it's just over for me. i'm going to fight again.
>> no, you ain't, vinny. that's what everybody here knows. they're afraid to say it to your face. you're not going to fight again. >> miles teller, congratulations on this movie. it really at its heart, it's a comeback movie. it's not really a sports movie. this is about an amazing comeback and human spirit. >> yeah, absolutely. i think that boxing more so than any other sport has been brought to the, you know, big screen. it's a very -- i think it transcends the sport of boxing. vinny achieved what he was being told wasn't possible. he broke his neck and they said you might never walk again. you might certainly never box again. in real life vinny five days after breaking his neck went down to his basement with this thing on and said, no, i'm going to -- yeah, i'm going to come
back from this. five days after breaking his neck tried to start bench press and comes back a year later and in real life won three more world titles afterwards. it's just such an incredible story about a guy with will and perseverance and sense of self. to me that's the thing i take away from it, him knowing something about himself nobody else knew. every doctor is telling him this is impossible. what you love to do, that's done. you need to find something else. but he told me, he said, miles, i knew that i was meant to be a fighter. if i couldn't fight, i didn't care about walking. it's unreal. >> i worked in rhode island for a couple of years, i lived in cranston. his pictures would be up in different restaurants. >> yeah. >> did you go to vinny for guidance? you crushed the accent. >> yeah. you know, it's interesting, it was the first time that i ever played a real-life person. you know, i've seen these kind
of movies before, i know they're going to show archival footage at some point. you want to be pretty close to the guy. yeah, i don't know. once i was on set, absolutely, vinny is the only person who can tell you how to bench press with a halo on. there's no other person in the world who can speak with any authority on that. so for certain scenes like that, yeah, it was really special. very rarely does someone make a movie about your life and very rarely are you in your 50s or still old enough or young enough to really appreciate it. vinny retired 15 years ago and already a movie produced by martin scorcese is in theaters. >> what you got, miles? what you got physically there? >> you know, i'm not going to try and go -- i'm not going to try and match what al can do in
the gym. you know, i don't need to feed my ego that way. >> but you did some physical training, right? >> you can see in that "divergent" clip, i filmed this movie not that long after that. i was not -- i certainly don't think i was the guy studios were calling to be a five-time world champion italian-american boxer. we filmed this two years ago, but i lost 20 pounds and got down to 6% body fat and then i had to gain 15 pounds back while we were filming. >> the biggest problem you had was growing the mustache. >> i wish i still looked like that. >> you know what, this movie is a moment in your life and it is brilliant. congratulations on it. it opens nationwide next friday, november 18th. bench press, show him what you got? >>

here we have christina coming in. there she is. and this look is inspired by one of our favorite athleti athletic athleisure style icons and that is beyonce. christina's top is a graphic tee from ivy park, which is beyonce's line. just $25 so that's a great way to get in on that graphic, bold look which we're seeing in and outside of the gym. then we went for a huge pop of color, which is a big deal at the gym. you really want to stand out. this is sort of a high-tech oversized take on the hoodie. you can see christina can pull her little hood up and she looks so sporty and cool. >> those bright colors really are all the rage. >> and lastly, let's talk about probably the biggest trend this season in legging and you can see she's wearing those mesh insert leggings. this is great to mix in with your entire wardrobe. i mean wear it with a leather jacket, oversized sweater and
the rihanna sales star favorite, the adidas superstar. we see them everywhere. >> from big color to m monochromatic. >> i want to curl up and wear this outfit every day. >> that looks comfy. >> i want that right now. >> i love it. it's like an updated take on the gray sweatshirt and a couple of big trends here, the jacquard great quilting and the funnel neck. the funnel neck is fashion meets function. you can pull it all the way over your head if you want. >> in case you want to rob a bank. >> and for the ladies, here's another thing we love about this top is it's the perfect length for running around town. i mean she could be going to the gym, she could be going to a movie. >> okay. let's get the guys look in here from steven real quickly. >> guys are loving the athleisure look too. the great thing about guys is it's high tech and high style,
so his t-shirt is a merino tee from outdoor voices. this fabric keeps you warm when it's cold outside, cool when it's hot outside and is naturally odor absorbing. >> he's got a lot of layering going on. >> al, you've got to touch this jacket, this is so soft. this is another piece by outdoor voices. it's high style but also four-way stretch and built to take away sweat, right? and lastly these leggings. al, this is what all the guys are wearing. >> that's not happening. >> it's a new trend. >> no, not for me. thank you so much. bring all of our models back in here. other than that, you are okay, steven, until the leggings. we're back in a moment, but first this is "today" on nbc.
