7:04 am
who was up late, too. mainly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the night began gloomily for donald trump, his advisers and somber crowd. early returns and exit polls were discouraging but trump's unshakeable belief in voter turnout that would defy expectations and shatter all predictions materialized and no matter how improbably, the presidency was trump. >> the president-elect of the united states of america, donald trump. >> reporter: with characteric flare and his family in tow, donald trump -- >> i just received a call from secretary clinton. >> reporter: saluting the vanquished democratic nominee he threatened to jail during a historically bitter campaign.
7:05 am
>> hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. i mean that very sincerely. >> reporter: with votes still being count trump offered soothing words to the more than 58 million americans who voted against him vowing to pursue reconciliation. >> 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. >> reporter: trump said it was time for the country to dream big and he promised massive investments and new infrastructure and a push to clean your marc's inner cities. >> america will no longer settle for anything less than the best. >> reporter: as he has throughout the campaign, trump said his administration would
7:06 am
soften the blows of globalization with tougher policies on trade and immigration. >> the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. >> reporter: moving a history he uniquely saw as his political destiny, trump said he would now focus on the fight ahead. >> while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. >> reporter: twitter, of course, played a prominent role in donald trump's pursuit of the american presidency. and we have, this morning, the first tweet from president-elect trump that reads as follows. such a beautiful and important evening! the forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. we will all come together as never before. norah? >> major garrett, thank you so much. hillary clinton did not speak to supporters in new york last night. campaign chairman john podesta addressed the stunned crowd as
7:07 am
her victory party turned into a vigil. >> they are still counting votes and every vote should count. several states are too close to call so we are not going to have anything more to say tonight. we are so proud of her. she's done an amazing job and she is not done yet. so thank you for being with her. >> but within the hour, after saying that, hillary clinton called donald trump to concede and clinton spent the night at the pa necessary la hotel in manhattan. nancy cordes is there right now. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. clinton gave no public speech and put out no public statement, herself, leaving many supporters thinking what she thinks of cheese events. she will speak today but have not given us a time or a police.
7:08 am
the mood was astounding going from upset at the end where at first they had been jup atlanbid crying and shell-shocked and hugging each other for support as the night went on. they were so sure on their data said at 8:00 p.m. she was putting the finishing touches on someone one of the two speeches they had made for her. their internal polling showed her leading in the states that they considered her surest path to victory. holding michigan, then winning first half and colorado and pennsylvania and virginia. but turnout ended being soft in some key urban areas and, suddenly, pennsylvania, where she had loed throughout the entire election was a nail-biter. michigan, a nail-biter. wisconsin, a state that aides event admit were not on their radar screen, a nail-biter. clinton had not visited that
7:09 am
state in seven months. president obama won that state by seven points back in 2012. this all shows you why they thought a state like that might be a sure thing. this is a ground game operation that was supposed to be second to none. they spared no expense on it and so the question this morning is what happened? >> thanks, nancy. joining us now from trump towers, donald trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway. good morning and congratulations. >> thank you, charlie. we are really excited here. >> reporter: tell us about the conversation between secretary clinton and donald trump. >> it was a very gracious conversation about 2:30 a.m. or so. and we had already gone over to the hilton to meet our supporters. we had been watching the returns throughout the night here at trump tower. and after we made our way there, our plan was really just to wait and see if the rest of the states and the presidency had been called and, in the meantime, my phone rang and i
7:10 am
handed it to mr. trump and he and secretary clinton had a brief, but very gray news, very warm conversation. he commended her how smart and tough she is and what a great campaign she ran and she congratulated him on his victory. >> he it talk about bringing the country together. what are some of the immediate steps he will take in order to do that? >> well, one step that he'll take immediately is to meet with president obama. i know he is very excited for that meeting. the two of them spoke last night. the president-elect and the president -- really, early this morning into the wee hours. and mr. trump looks forward to going down to the white house and meeting with president obama and having a smooth transition. you know, we can learn an awful lot from those who don't support us and that is one thing that we even try to do here at the trump campaign was to listen to people and hear what their concerns are, their frustration, their fears and i think that will continue in a trump president. >> will you share with us how that conversation came about with donald trump and president obama?
7:11 am
when did that happen? >> president obama reached out to mr. trump, ironically, while mr. trump was on the stage so the call was missed at first. timing is everything. and, of course, he called him immediately when he knew that. and they talked well into the wee hours, 3:00 or 3:30 a.m., i would say. and that was also a very cordial conversation, you know, between two men who had been at battle frankly. president obama was trying to turn his popularity to hillary clinton and i think and michelle obama went all out to hillary clinton to get her to victory and were pretty active on the trail. >> it is being described as the biggest political upset that some people have seen in history. some are using that phrase. when did you guys know that it was going your way, that this was going to happen? >> about two and a half weeks ago it started to come together, gayle. we had -- we had really navigated and survived a number
7:12 am
of darker days here on the campaign and we started to notice a few things, that we had been more question of in the traditionally blue states like michigan, wisconsin, pennsylvania, that are very attracted to the donald trump message of creating jobs, bringing back manufacturing jobs and certainly curbing illegal immigration and talking about fairness to the american worker and creating new jobs. i think frankly just being an outsider. what really started to crystallized we noticed all of the time that hillary clinton had a difficult time in each of these swing states getting at 45, 46, 47% let alone the 50% plus that president obama achieved twice. i think the perfect storm was completed by obamacare premiums increasing in october. people were literally opening up their mailboxes and clicking on to their computers and finding the notices that their premiums were exploding under obamacare, the affordable care act. it really all came together. mr. trump stuck to the issue set and continued to run the campaign as he always has with
7:13 am
these big rallies and wherever we went, literally, any stop we added, he had huge crowd. >> when will he meet with president obama? >> that is not set but it could be as soon as this week. we are actually trying to work out those low gistics today. >> thank you. >> we are getting new information from the white house on when president obama will meet with donald trump. margaret brennan is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when president obama phoned donald trump last night to congratulate him, he invited him here to the white house for a meeting on thursday to talk through the transition. white house aides say the president also called hillary clinton last night and, remember, put this in context. he stumped more for his successor than any president in modern history. so this is a stunning blow for president obama, himself, and for his legacy. he said this determined the very fate of the republic.
7:14 am
he called donald trump unfit for office and trump has promised to overturn obamacare and overhauling immigration and pulling back regulations and turning up that hard negotiated iran nuclear deal so this is an interesting meeting on thursday when the two are set for face. it will be awkward conversation for president obama when he heads to europe this monday. he is going to try to reassure allies that america will still defend them. he'll have an unpleasant time trying to explain trump's friendly overtures to russia and these threats to launch a trade war with china. and it's really safe to say here, gayle, that when president obama does speak to the public later today, which we do expect him to make a statement, he is really going to have to reconcile what ed last night, which was really a statement expressing optimistic and saying
7:15 am
america has been, always will be great but this was certainly not the wednesday morning he expected to be waking up to. >> margaret, thank you very much. donald trump's victory surprised media and baffled polsters. the key states of florida, north carolina, pennsylvania, and wisconsin all played a pivotal role because they all landed up in donald trump's column. anthony mason is here with a breakdown of our exit polling results. anthony, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the three key pillars of donald trump's victory were, first of all, men. he won men by 12 points. 53% to 41%. secondly, he won whites without college degrees by 67% to 28%. more than 2-1. the most important quality voters were looking for yesterday was a candidate who could bring about change. among those voters, donald trump won 83%. now there was a lot of concern after the "access hollywood" tape that republicans might desert trump as some leader unendorsed him. well, he won 81% of
7:16 am
conservatives, 81% of white evangelicals and in the end, 9 out of 10 republicans voted for donald trump. also here, in three key elements of the democratic coalition, hillary clinton underperformed. she did win young voters, 55%, african-americans 88%, and hispanics taking 65%. but in all three cases four years ago, barack obama got 5-point or more bigger margin. that underperformance and other elements i talked about with donald trump is how donald trump's victory was written last night. >> anthony, thank you. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> reporter: the clinton campaign went into election day confident. they believe they had banked a number of early votes and they were talking about a new clinton coalition but at the end of the
7:17 am
night they wouldn't put together the obama -- >> as anthony just said hillary clinton underperformed with the key groups she needed to perform well with. she did turn out more latino voters in florida but when she was turning out voters donald trump was turning out voters, those nonurban, noncollege-educated voters. she, in some instances and some counties, just got swamped compared to barack obama with those noncollege educated voters. and in crucial states where, you know, particularly in wisconsin and pennsylvania where they really thought that those were solid states for her. >> so was it the rural vote in the rust belt that really propelled donald trump to the presidency? >> well, yes and no. he also won florida. i mean, you know? so florida and north carolina, those are not rust belt states. so it was -- i mean, this is -- >> if michigan and wisconsin -- >> sure. >> had stayed in democratic territory, hillary clinton would be president of the united states if she had -- well -- she
7:18 am
also needed pennsylvania. >> it wasn't just the rust belt. >> and florida and -- >> you're giving me flash backs two hours ago when we were over there. >> i can pull out my little clipboard again. >> what is interesting to me is how you turn this into a mandate. of course, donald trump has a mandate in terms of the electoral vote when you about you look at the popular vote it's pretty close and fascinating to see when he talks about standing up for the silent people, the ones who were left you know, all of the hillary clinton voters who feel like they are being left behind now. >> she said -- kellyanne said they began to see it 1968 weetw three weeks ago. did we see it? >> the tightening started before the comey fbi letter on friday. unclear why it was happening and part of republicans were coming home because donald trump was not engaged in any controversies
7:19 am
that had set them off for a little while. they said many times when he's on the teleprompter is the way they would talk about it, it gave republicans nothing new for worry about and nothing new to worry about, the republicans came home. the people that turned out to donald trump were with him for a long time. >> yeah. >> thank you. >> we are going to dig deeper into the details and also we are expecting to hear from hillary clinton today, and just a reminder of where the popular vote stands at this hour. it is still very close between the two candidates. more votes to be counted in the west but incredibly to still look at that. john, thank you. >> sure. >> so much. vladimir putin was quick to respond to donald trump's victory. ahead, we will take you to moscow for what the russian president is saying about future relations with donald trump. first, it's time to check your local weather.

7:32 am
undecided, including new hampshire. democrats only took one seat away from republicans in illinois with representative tammy duckworth beating incumbent mark kirk. they were able to keep their seats in north carolina, wisconsin, missouri, pennsylvania, and florida. that's where former presidential candidate and senator marco rubio fended off his democratic challenger. in nevada, democrats hung on to the seat held by retiring senator senate minority leader harry reid and catherine cortez masto took that seat. cbs news estimates a 45-seat advantage with some races being decided. >> thank you, julianna. >> thank you, julianna. >> thank you, julianna. >> we are all very thankful! >> yes, yes, we are grateful. in his acceptance speech
7:33 am
overnight, president-elect donald trump said america needs to come together and, quote, bind the wounds of division and he promised to be the president for all people. on "60 minutes" on sunday, frank luntz gathered a focus group of undecided voters. it revealed how deep those divisions are. >> how did we get to the point where every one of you, with different backgrounds, different politics, different objectives, all of you gave me a negative reaction. >> it was the establishment. >> how did we get here? >> because we need -- >> one at a time. we are talking over each other. >> the election. >> it was cheat. >> it was not. >> it was cheated. >> how did we get here? >> it's all fault. you saw it here. everybody is arguing. i'm afraid to even bring up a point. i'm not pro on-trump but i see why people like him and if i say that i'm going to be ostracized. >> my biggest fear the candidates are not a mistake.
7:34 am
that the american people have elected the future of america, what we aspire to be and what we are deep down inside. i think trump has gotten so much traction at this point because deep down inside a lot of americans that feel the exact same way. >> deep down, our country is divided. i'm sorry. we are not united. we are at each other's throats. i'm sorry. maybe this is the candidate we want. >> frank luntz joins us at the table and so much negativity on the group you showed us on "60 minutes" and donald trump last night is wanting us to be united. how is he able to prove to people i am the one who can turn things around? how is he able to do that? >> first, last night's speech was the best speech i've seen donald trump give. he was reaching out and he was saying the kinds of commitments i was hoping he would say and he appeared to be serious. and -- >> do you doubt him? >> i doubt everything about politics right now.
7:35 am
let's start with the exit polls because i'm a pollster. virtually, every state was wrong. they predicted the wrong winner or off four or five and ohio almost 10%. it was off. why? because donald trump voters don't want to participate in polls and they don't want to tell pollsters what they are doing not because they are afraid but so uncooperative. so hostile to the system they feel that is giving in. >> donald trump's campaign paid millions of dollars to an overseas firm. it is called cambridge an litica. they used memberships from gyms and charity donations and all to target their voters. the data people that worked for cambridge said they knew over ten days ago they might win this election. so are the polsters wrong and there is new way to gather data out there that the political class hasn't picked up on yet? >> you have to be able to read
7:36 am
people when they don't necessarily tell you who they are going to vote for. other things as part of the decision-making process. >> but the obama team did that in 2008 and 2002. we can tell what kind of car you buy and micro targeting, yes. >> but the issue now is when you are so upset with the way things are going. when you think washington has betrayed and wall street has betrayed you, then you're not going to cooperate and you're going to find some other way to express your point of view. now i went to a couple of trump rallies on monday and what i saw were people who not only couldn't wait to vote but they were going to drag 10, 15 people with them. >> where was that? >> the level of intensity. in pennsylvania which he won and north carolina, which he won. we forget that hillary clinton was actually not a good candidate in a traditional election being first lady, secretary of state, and senator. would absolutely qualify you and probably would propel you to the presidency. but if you have an american
7:37 am
electorate so angry with the system and so angry with the elites as part of the system, that's actually negative. >> did we hear she was not a good candidate before last night? >> absolutely. >> it seems like i'm hearing that more and more last night. until then, she was hillary clinton, the most qualified candidate, the best suited for the job, the best temperament. now we are hearing not a good candidate. >> one thing of being qualified and being a great candidate. >> and being a good candidate, i get that. >> also she had a 42% 43% favor ability rating before and 54% didn't like her. we forgot that. we weren't talking about the fact she had the highest negativity of any democratic nominee and now we are being reminded of is. one more. we did a survey last night, 1,200 voters and asking if it was bernie sanders versus donald trump who would win? by eight points, they preferred bernie sanders over donald trump. the reason why? character. we want to say that elections are about policy. they aren't. they are actually about who you trust, who do you have more faith in and who do you think
7:38 am
understands you -- >> do you think this election was more about character or change? >> i think it was more about change and not just change in terms of policy, it's in terms of trust and they simply didn't trust her and the exit polls, which i don't want to cite ever again, but even the exit polls talked about the lack of trust in hillary clinton. >> but they also said that change was the most important driving factor. >> right. that's why i don't understand why they had clinton winning state after state that trump actually won. this is a very interesting -- i think it's actually very good day for democracy. it's a very bad day for pollsters. >> do you consider yourself a pollster? >> of course, not. i did yesterday. but today, i'm a communications specialist. >> you can always reinvent yourself irks i have to do it every week and i think i'm good at it. >> thank you. vladimir putin says the election has given him new hope about relations with the u.s. we will take you to moscow to

7:40 am
warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto.

8:02 am
next president of the united states. he overcame incredible odds to reach that goal. the republican nominee beat hillary clinton in his first run for office. cbs news estimates he won at least 289 electoral votes from 29 states. we still cannot call a winner in minnesota, michigan, and new hampshire. >> hillary clinton is actually leading in the popular vote right now. she called the president-elect to concede before 3:00 eastern time early in the morning. we just learned that she will come out to address her staff and supporters at 9:30 eastern, 8:30 central. we will bring that to you in a cbs news special report on. donald trump said that hillary clinton already congratulated him and his supporters. he said we should be grateful to the former secretary of state for her years of service. >> to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as one united people.
8:03 am
it's time. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president important to me. >> major garrett was there for that victory speech. he has been covering the trump campaign from the very beginning. major, good morning. take us there. what was it like last night in the room? >> reporter: good morning. well, the supporters for donald trump were not surprised by the result. they were resilient all night. quiet at first. because the early returns were not painting a picture of a trump surprise victory. they were a little bit on the darker side. not necessarily looking so good. but the trump supporters are see something in donald trump, he sees something in them and they just waited for the news to break their way. as it did, gradually through the night, the ripples went through the crowd until there was that
8:04 am
shout of joy and elation when it was obvious that trump would not only win but hillary clinton conceded and they waited to see the next president-elect. >> major, what are the rural vote? how do they attribute that as part of the coalition that led to his victory? >> say that again, norah? the what? >> reporter: the rural vote in the rust belt. >> reporter: okay, sure, sure. the whole unified theory for the donald trump campaign was there was this underappreciated divide in the american democratic politics. the white vote. so much talk, the trump campaign said, the ags american and black vote and latino vote. they said, wait a minute. millions of white americans have given up on politics and if we reengage them we can win and exactly the process that donald trump went through from the very beginning of his announcement speech to the end of his campaign. when he talks about, as he did this morning on twitter, the forgotten man and the forgotten woman in this country, that is who he is talking about.
8:05 am
that was their hunch and it proved to be correct. >> major, thank you. outside of trump tower. again, we are awaiting hillary clinton's speech to supporters at 9:30 eastern/8:30 central and we will bring to you live. john podesta last night, clinton's campaign manager, they should get some sleep. within the hour, we heard she conceded and called donald trump. nancy cordes has covered the clinton campaign from the start. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. you know, there are lots of campaigns that show bravado in the home stretch. you never want to indicate you are losing but not what was going on with the clinton campaign. they truly believed, based on all of the available data, that she was going to win. she was ahead in the polls in every single state that they felt she needed to win. she had been leading in the polls in those states for months, sometimes by double digits. she had a superior ground game. they had so much money to spend
8:06 am
on ads and staff that they actually ended this campaign with $150 million left over that they couldn't spend. so to say that aides are stunned today is really an understatement. if you want more proof, well, they were putting the finishing touches on her victory speech at 8:00 last night. they thought it might be an early night. they had transition meetings planned for this morning. they believed she was going to be going to washington, d.c. tomorrow to meet with president obama as the first female president-elect. at that javits center last night, a lot of the tear-stained faces you saw were young women who truly believed that she was going to be the first female president of the united states and that she was going to break that great glass ceiling. adding to the surreal nature of this morning, as we wait to see what hillary clinton will say when she leaves the peninsula hotel behind me haends to
8:07 am

8:08 am
campaign looked at the other states and realized they are not winning michigan. at that point, electoral votes were stacking up. the assumption trump will be over 300 electoral votes and when podesta made the statement a point to challenge one of the states. you go to north carolina and fight for a recount and you go to pennsylvania and make a legal challenge. but once you realize that he is going to be over 300 electoral votes, you're not going to be able to fight that out. >> is this election simply the fact that trump had a theory in the case that turned out to be true? >> well, i think -- >> as far as she was a bad candidate or -- >> look. he got fewer votes than mitt romney got in 2012. and, yet, he won vastly more electoral votes and going to be the next president of the united states. she, wildly, underperformed as a candidate. a lot of questions about polling got it all wrong and both the
8:09 am
internal polling and internal campaigns and the public polls. she did not built a coalition of her own and he caught the populace moment that bernie sanders and he tapped into and brexit tapped into as well. >> right. she couldn't even turn out the obama coalition, blacks, latinoss and millennials and didn't come out with the same number obama did. what about suburban women? white college-educated women? the polls said this is the swing vote and they will break for hillary clinton. did they? >> no. she won white college-educateded women but consistently polling for months saying she would win that by 30 points and she won it by about ten. >> and lost it in florida i. >> and some said she would win white college educated men by a dozen and lost it by a dozen. polling is broken and not just broken here in america but it's broken in europe and see this over and over again. there is going to be a deep
8:10 am
profound autopsy that is going to happen the next six months because every political strategist i know is totally confounded why the polls were so off and why a lot of us journalists, me included, you looked at all of the polling and you said, well, she is clearly on track to win this election but if the polling is messed up, the strategists don't understand it, it's part of why journalists get misled and why we all came to the wrong conclusions about where this race was headed. >> maybe turn to shoe leather politics? >> they are not consistent. you should be able to do both. politics is part art and part science. science has been predominant and more important in politics on but the science now is a little screw yo screwy. >> legalized marijuana won big in states. what this means for other parts of the count

8:33 am
i think trump did a good job of using social media, of messaging in his own way. perhaps he didn't get the credit he should have for that. at the same time, now he and this republican party, they own it. and, unfortunately, i think, in frustration, the voters have handed over the presidency to someone who even 61% of folks in an exit poll yesterday believed was not qualified to be president. >> do you believe he is still unfit to be president? >> well, my opinion about whether he should be president hasn't changed from last night to today. but i do think that it's up to all of us as americans to do what we can to unite the country and it's up to him, more than anybody, to make sure that he approaches the presidency differently from how he approached the campaign. being president is not like being a campaigner. >> yes. >> are you encouraged what he said last night? >> sure. but here is the thing, charlie.
8:34 am
i think all along the way, one of the things he benefited from was very, very low expectations. a president has to do more than just say a nice few words. this election could have real negative consequences for people. he wants to take away obamacare and that is 22 million people who have health care in our country that won't have it -- >> he says he is going to take away obamacare. >> there is 600,000 dreamers in our country who are good people, who are young people who are contributing to the forward progress of our nation. he says on day one wants to do away with the executive order that president obama put in place without anything that would keep those families together. that is why there is a tremendous amount of concern about his presidency. >> how do you explain that, mayor? because mitt romney, his own party said that he lost the hispanic vote by such a large margin because he talked about hispanics and those who are not here legally.

donald trump's election is certain to change america's national security policies around the world. last week in the "the washington post" former cia and national
8:45 am
security director michael hayden criticized trump for admiring russian president vladimir putin. general hayden joins us now. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> reporter: because you and other national security officials have so been up front in your criticism on national security grounds of donald trump, what is your worst scenario? what is your biggest fear of donald trump as president? >> charlie, i think the biggest fear i have is that he doesn't have that conversation that he has to have. look. i think it's fair to say that he has become the president-elect by showing anger, by being accusatory. frankly not being all that fact-based and scapegoating, imagining enemies. none of that fits into the intelligence picture. that is very alien the way intelligence comes at an issue. and unless he has a conversation with what i call the fact-based
8:46 am
inductive people, and he has a dialogue i fear he will act on the other set of beliefs and that is going to be very bad for america and for the world. >> can he dismantle the iran nuclear deal? >> no, i don't think he can. it's relatively locked in. he is be ceremonial by ripping up some sort of document but i don't think it changes a lot. frankly, charlie, that's not the ne necessary step. the impact to the deal for the nuclear program is okay but the other things iranians are doing and frankly mr. chump had good criticisms of the current administration and don't let them get away what they are doing? syria and yemen and elsewhere and worry about the nuclear deal in the out years when it's current provisions, such as they are, begin to age off. >> russian leadership seems to be celebrating a trump victory today. general hayden, vladimir putin
8:47 am
has already sent a letter of congratulations. anything concern you about that? >> sure. look. i mean, when pressed, mr. trump said wouldn't it be good if we had good relations with the russian government? of course, it would be. i would like him to also make conditions on the russians, that the russians have to do certain things or stop doing other things for us to begin to have a more mutually beneficial relationship. i've yet to see word one in terms of what russian behavior has to look like before we enter into this more meaningful dialogue. i'd like to get there too, but it can't be cost-free for the kremlin. >> two questions for you. first, what does this mean for the fight against isis? >> we are in a pretty good spot right now against isis. i've complained. we have kind of backed into our current effort. we have been light overregulated and underresourced, but right now, we are on the cusp of a significant victory in mosul. it's going to take time. and, frankly, we are beginning to tighten the vise around
8:48 am
as well. here is what i fear. mr. trump thinks we are where we are now because we have been weak and stupid. i think we have been slow but not weak and stupid. he seems to have the belief that we can get our way out of this quickly and then go home. my sense is with that formula, we get to kill our way out of this again and again. >> by most estimates, one quarter of the world's population, 1.5 billion people, are muslim. donald trump has said he would ban them from the united states. he has changed a little bit on his policy when asked several times. what do you think the reaction will be there and how does that impact our national security? >> it makes it all more and more difficult. look. this is a difficult relationship. but what is going on is a great civil war inside a great monday theism. we can't decide the outcome of
8:49 am
that war but they have to give them some respect because we have deep, good friend inside that belief system. and to take this blanket accusation, they all hate us, and now impose this restriction on all believers of that great faith, that sets us back. that actually -- you know, the isis narrative, the al qaeda narrative is there is an undying -- between islam and the west. >> general hayden, thank you for your time this morning. you're watching "cbs this morning." we will be right back. fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we're offering incredibly fast 150 meg internet,
