( applause ) >> reporter: in a moment as historic as it was unexpected, president donald j. trump took the oath of office, laying out a broad blueprint of his vision for america. >> we will face challenges. we will confront hardships. but we will get the job done. >> reporter: for the 45th president, who according to the latest cbs news poll, brings a record low 32% favorable rating to the oval office, that means confronting business as usual in washington, d.c. >> we are transferring power from washington, d.c. and giving it back to you, the people. ( applause ) >> reporter: there were tower words about dark times. >> the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized
potential. this american carnage stops right here and stops right now. >> if his presidency is successful i think he will redefine the republican party. >> dan steenor was an adviser to president bush and mitt romney. you were visibly opposed to trump. what is your current state of expwhriend my current state of mind is cautiously optimistic. >> for him, like many republicans, watch mr. trump's ascent to the white house has been and remains something of a journey. >> and now we are looking only to the future. >> in the next year, we could have comprehensive tax reform, health care reform, and you could have a conservative successor sworn into the supreme court, just those three things alone. as a conservative, you think, wow. ing. >> reporter: if i hear you correctly, it's as if ronald reagan has returned, except he
has a working parentener on capitol hill, which he didn't when he was president. >> he's not ronald reagan, but he can unleash something that is comparable to a reagan-like agenda. i will say i'm pleasantly surprised by something else. i had no idea the kind of team that donald trump as president would assemble. >> reporter: you were fearful. >> right. >> reporter: of the team he might assemble. >> correct. >> reporter: president trump's cabinet picks illustrate his approach to governing. he prefers strong personality and loyalty over policy pedigree. some picks are controversials, generals, billion arizona, and million arizona, who are used to calling the shots. >> so help you god. >> i do. >> reporter: will mr. trump listen to them when they contradict his positions? >> wouldn't it be nice if we actually did get along with russia? >> russia today poses a danger. >> reporter: many of his choiceses have already disagreed with him in contentious confirmation hearings. >> the most important thing is
that we recognize the reality of what we deal with, with mr. putin. >> would i approve waterboarding? you bet your ass i would approve it. >> if you were ordered by the president to restart the c.i.a.'s use of enhanced interrogation techniques that fall outside of the army field manual, would you comply? >> senator, absolutely not. >> reporter: secretary of homeland security, john kelly, was confirmed today, as was secretary of defense james mattis. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear... >> ronald reagan was a conservative. >> they will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> bill clinton was a moderate. >> preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states. >> barack obama, make a progressive. donald trump is a trumpist, and we're going to find out what that means. >> washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. >> reporter: president trump
will rely a lot more on charisma than ideology, says mark leibowitz, who spent months observing him on the campaign trail for for the "new york times." he is also a cbs news consultant. >> a lot of the business of washington is pred indicated on things not getting done. >> house will be in order. >> donald trump is going to have an abiding faith in his own ability to go into a room and actually force thingses by will of personality, negotiation, what have you, into just changing and to being. >> we will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action constantly complaining but never doing anything about it. ( applause ) now arrives the hour of action. >> reporter: as the new president settles in for his first night at the most exclusive address in america, the millions who summit him, felt tied to his agenda. hopes are he laib president for all americans. >> your voice, your hopes, and
your dreams will define our american destiny. >> president trump agains a job surrounded by the people he trusts the most, his children. the close-knit family has been by his side since the day he launched his campaign. we spoke to the president's son eric about what this moment means. eric trump, here we sit. what runs through your mind when you hear "the 45th president of the united states." go. >> it's incredible. we worked so hard. he worked so hard, but as a family we came together like never before. >> i get all of that, but i'm talking about the nitty and the gritty of the family. there must have been a moment when you guys were behind the closed doors and done the hoola and said, "oh, my gosh, we did it." that's what i want to know. i want to know that moment. >> the "can you believe it "moment. we were out-raised, six to seven to one, we had the media against us in the vast majority of
cases. we had the entire political elite against us. it's interesting, we only got 6% of the vote in washington, d.c., and i thought that i was very, very telling. but yet you win the election. and i think that tells the disparity between washington and the people of this country, and my father spoke to the people of this nation, and he won. and honestly, i could not be more proud of him. >> proud is the word of the day. they said they take great pride, john, that everybody betted against them and they pulled it off. >> they're now all coming to washington. >> yes, they are. 1600 pennsylvania avenue, here we come. we'll have more of my conversation with eric trump later in the broadcast. stay with us, we'll b
enough pressure in here for ya? ugh. my sinuses are killing me. yeah...just wait 'til we hit ten thousand feet. i'm gonna take mucinex sinus-max. too late, we're about to take off. these dissolve fast. they're liquid gels. and you're coming with me... wait, what?! you realize i have gold status? do i still get the miles? mucinex sinus-max liquid gels. dissolves fast to unleash max strength medicine. also try fast-max multi-symptom for a powerful rush of cold symptom relief. let's end this.
trump would moderate his unpredictable and incendiary rhetoric for his inaugural address was proven wrong again. he opened his presidency with a bang, just as he's done all his life president donald trump has made it very clear he's coming to washington to change the rules. >> he wants to lead washington, but he also wants to blow up the way business is done in washington. >> michael crannish is an investigative journalist with the "washington post," who coauthored the biography "trump revealed." he says to understand how trump will govern go back to his
roots. >> when he was very young, he liked to play catcher in little league and he liked to be bhnd the plate and chide the opposing batters. he beat people up. he proudly talked about punching his music teacher. >> to gain the advantage, donald trump likes to unsettle things. it was evident in his campaign. >> where i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay. it's like incredible. >> certainly he is a provocateur there's no question about that. >> we'll be number one. nobody competes with it. >> trump's goal is one that has been with him since an early age, winning. why is winning so important to donald trump? >> i think it comes from his father, fred trump. >> fred trump was a self-made millionaire land developer who helped his children sharpen their competitive drive in the rough world of new york real estate. and what did it mean to you when
you were a young teenager and heard the word "trump." >> competition. >> reporter: real estate tycoon richard lefrack has known donald trump for more than 40 years. >> both our dads were building, you know, middle-income apartments. i would say they were friendly competitors. >> freld trump is also the key tonding why son donald connects with the working class. >class. >> we often would laugh, "what did you do with your father on saturday?" "go to the construction site." "and whoftion there working on the construction site? harvard professors, right? no. they were work men and women. >> reporter: if trump got his drive from his father, he models his combative style after the late attorney roy cohen. cohen served as chief counsel for joseph mccarthy during the senator's crusades of the 1950s. cohen defended fred and donald trump against the u.s. justice
department when it sued them for racial bias in 1973. >> the justice department said donald trump and his father discriminated against blacks by basically having their employees note who was a black applicant for housing. roy cohen basically said to donald trump, "fight the government. fight like hell. don't give up. when they hit you, hit pack 100 times harder." and cohen counter-sued for $100 million. >> reporter: the trumps eventually settled without admission of guilt but the episode was a bitter one. >> i think there's a straight line between donald trump's experience in 1973 and trump's animous towards some parts of the federal government today. >> reporter: though his career started in partnership with his father, trump was determined to make a name for himself. >> i think he wanted it to top his father. un, donald wanted to do everything bigger, better, and he did. >> reporter: that meant going beyond his father's deals in brooklyn and queens, and into manhattan. trump took advantage of new york city's financial cries. in 1980s, he bought up
properties, extracting a huge tax break along the way. and he transformed the city's skyline with trump tower. >> i just have a certain amount of confidence that if i want to do something, i can do it. >> reporter: bravado was part of his style-- >> do it as soon as you can. >> reporter: but so was the flexibility to negotiate. >> he uses his charisma. he uses the force of his personality. his celebrity to get what he wants. >> reporter: trump also bought three atlantic city casinos, an airline, and the mar-a-lago estate, but along the away of way he figured out his greatest site of his name as he told "60 minutes'" mike wallace in an interview. what. the name trump, trump city, trump plawz atrump castle? >> it sells, miles. >> that's all it is. >> it has nothing to do with the ego. all i know is it sells.
>> reporter: luxury branding was trump's real innovation, says lefrack. was that a big innovation, small innovation? give us a sense-- >> huge. it was huge. it was a big innovation. >> by 1990, trump's towers of acquisitions collapsed. he had two highly publicized divorces and his casinos were failing. >> critics call the taj mahal the eighth blunder of the business world. >> reporter: he was not winning. the period would ultimately show just how far trump would go to keep himself and only himself in the game. >> in the end, all three casinos had to file corporate bankruptcies and donald trump had to pull every lever possible so he didn't go into personal bankruptcy. he then created a public company which paid him millions of dollars at a share price of $35 but it went down to 17 cents and shareholders say, look, you're just using this company to enrich yourself. but trump said at the time, evidence looking out for me. i was looking out for donald trump. >> do you wish we would all go away?
>> absolutely. >> reporter: donald trump survived, and over the next decade, worked to repair his brand. then, in 2004, came "the apprentice." trump says the 14 seasons of the show earned him more than $200 million. >> and you could see that the camera loved him and he loved the camera. >> you're fired. >> reporter: but his time on television also taught him how to reach the audience that would elect him. >> we're going to win so much. >> well, without "the apprentice" i don't think we'd be sitting here talking about a president trump. for most americans, seeing him in that big chair, running things, he sort of looked like a chairman, a president. >> reporter: now he will sit at the desk in the oval office in the white house. his biggest real estate acquisition yet. pulled off by breaking nearly every convention of politics. >> i'm not going to give you a question-- >> can you state categorically-- >> you are fake news. >> reporter: donald trump is promising to be a
standards-breaking president, whether through his manic use of twitter-- is he thin-skinned? >> i'll let you be the judge of that. >> reporter: or his gentle attitude tuesday russia. >> if putin likes donald trump, guess what, folks? that's called an asset, not a liability. >> reporter: and the one constant of a trump presidency may be the man himself and his staying true to his own ambitious confrontational and unpredictable brand. >> and, you know, if he feels he can accomplish something by doing an end run, he'll do it. >> donald trump said he'll blow up the establishment. it's a promise he made again today. before coming to washington, he succeeded by creating chaos. now, he has about 325 million business partners, and the test will be whether he can govern a country that way. we'll be right back.

day and this inauguration, i came to one of the more unlikely places that made it possible. >> you're listening to a.m. 1050. >> 15 below whind chill, ouch. >> reporter: kenosha county, wisconsin, which for the first time in 44 years, voted republican. >> why, why did you vote for donald trump? >> reporter: it's not easy, as this radio personality discovered to get people here admit they went against tradition. >> admit it, you voted for trump. >> georgiana, a lifelong democrat, struggled with her decision. >> i figured, i'll take a chance on him. >> reporter: and then told no one. >> my family does not know. >> reporter: are they finding out for the first time right now? >> yes, yes. >> reporter: donald trump won this county by only a small margin, just 255 votes. but it was a resounding statement that many here feel is
overdue. >> we'll make america great again, okay. >> retired sheriff fred, insurance agent steve. steve, and teacher christie. >> president trump, that sounds kind of cool saying it, doesn't it, president trump. >> he's got a lot of energy. he's got a lot of enthusiasm. >> strong leader. a person that has a "get it done" attitude. >> reporter: when donald trump says, "make america great again," what does that mean to you? >> it means setting a tone. it means being proud of the country. >> reporter: that catch phrase evokes a cherished past when kenosha county was still a manufacturing hub. >> we feel we are salt of the earth people. we're hardworking people. >>ula net taught in the same middle school she once attended. she cowrote a third grade textbook on kenegotiate achronicling its past as a union stronghold in factories run by american bass, jockey, snapon tools, and most prominently, american motors.
>> as much as some people may have considered it to be a company town, that company provided its citizens with a great way of life. i mean, we really had it great. >> reporter: pat moran was mayor in 1988 when chrysler, which bought american motors, suddenly closed the factory, leaving 5500 people out of work. does this make you sad every time you come over here? >> very sad. it's a-- like a relative in the family that's died. >> reporter: during the general election, while trump campaigned in wisconsin, hillary clinton did not. moran says kecan negotiatians have long fest neglected by the democratic party. >> i don't want to hear about transgender bathrooms and political correctness from hillary clinton as being the most important issue. i want to know about jobs. >> reporter: there are jobs
here. the unemployment rate at 4.2% is actual he lower than the national average. there are opportunities in the new amazon distribution center and in retail. >> all you people out there i want to say welcome. >> reporter: and lou says kenosha has been reinventing itself as a bedroom community for white-collar workers employed elsewhere. >> i'm pretty high on what kenosha can offer and has offered over the past 20-25 years. >> reporter: but these trump voters want to see higher wages and kenosha's identity restored. >> we need to make things. we don't make anything anymore here. >> reporter: and you think he's going to be able to bring manufacturing back to kenosha. >> i think so. i think so. >> he's been successful throughout his whole life. >> if someone could bring back decent-paying jobs again, i think that's a step in the right direction. >> reporter: lanette didn't vote for trump, but she is rooting for him. >> i'm excited to see what'sings going to get done.
> reporter: but are you worried he may not keep his promises? >> i'm hoping he won't keep all of them. >> reporter: he hopes president trump will rethink his stand on a muslim ban and the mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, a concern that christie brushes aside. >> it's not like we're going to wake up on a tuesday and all of a sudden, every, you know, illegal immigrant is going to be gone. it doesn't work that way. we know that. >> reporter: and george anna worries deregulation could have consequences. >> my biggest mixed feelings is with the environment. denying global warming is just silly. >> reporter: but she, like so many others here, believe that trump's brash and unconventional style will push through change. what will you judge him by? >> so i'm going to look at my country, i'm going to look at my neighbors, i'm going to look at everything and say it's been four years, are we better off than we were four years ago, and if the answer is no, and he is directly the reason why, then, yeah, you're fired.

powerful message of change to the nation's capitol today. as he was inaugurated as the 45th president of the united states. in a blunt and sometimes strident address, he vowed to shake up washington and restore the country's greatness, and he made a pledge to the nation-- from this moment on, it's going to be america first. >> a lot of people leaving the mall today said, "that's exactly why i voted for him. i heard exactly what i wanted to hear today." it resonated with a lot today. perhaps no one knows trump's tough rhetoric than his adult children. it's how they were rails pd. and eric trump told us it created an unmistakable bond within the family. they are now officially the first family. ( applause ) and no one could have predictedly the road would end here. and now that you guys have gone all the way, what does that feel like to you?
>> well, i think you have to sit back and kind of pinch yourself. i mean, he's the most powerful man in the world and, you know, we're now the first family of the united states, and i think you have to take what responsibility incredibly seriously. >> listen, a lot of people were very happy with the election and the victory of donald j. trump, but not everybody was happy. there were some bruised feelings, some bruised egos. people felt that he doesn't care about women's rights, about immigration, about civil rights in some respects. what will he do, eric, to ease people's fears, to bring want country together? >> my father's a great unifier. i've seen it my entire life. and,usly, we have a very divided country. >> i think that's good. sounds good. but how will he do that? a lot of people are afraid and worried. >> it's very simple, he'll start putting america first again. and all too often we think of ourselves as republicans versus democrats and i think there are a lot of people who probably fall somewhere in the middle. >> reporter: >> what's your biggest fear for your dad as he's about to take a new chapter in his life, in all
your lives, really? >> i think having a lot of new people around him and, you know, as a family, we've always been a little bit insular. it was don, ivanka and myself and the company, and we were very, very close, and obviously the united states government is the largest company, you might want to call it, in the world. the the amount of people there. not every person will have his best interests at heart. it's very different than in a family company where everybody has your best interests at heart. >> ivawrchg has been described as-- that she will probably be the most influential first daughter. >> i love knowing that she's going to be in washington because, quite frankly, i think it's always great to have an unbiased sounding board. and that's the role that we as children can take. i'm really glad flad she'll be down there by his side if he were to need her. >> ivanka was by his side today, as were all his children, the first family in the spotlight.
that's nothing new for the trumps. eric was just a freshman in college when cbs did a story about father and son. >> sit up. >> the cbs archives, as you might expect, is extensive. >> i can't wait to see this. >> we found this. i love this video. >> i really look up to him. he's extremely-- he has an amazing work ethic. he's a visionary, of course. his passion is unbelievable. he really is a mentor. for me, and i know a lot of other people. he's amazing the way he performs business and just watching him work is something i think a lot of people can be aspired by. >> reporter: wow, okay. >> incredible. >> reporter: so, err. eric that video was in 2003, and you basically site sade in 2003 is what you said just moments ago about your dad. >> believe it. and quite frankly, i think it's more reinforced now than ever before. he is going to work and he is
going to work and he is going to work. my father is the first person in the office in the morning. he is the last person to leave. he works seven days a week, 365 days a year. he's going to put washington back to work, and our government's going to start work for the people again. >> reporter: except they did say he's going to take the weekend off and did start on monday. >> is that acceptable, gayle? >> since you have his ear, all of you do, and i know you feel comfortable saying anything to him, have you just said anything about the tweets? surely there have been times, eric, where you said, "geez, dad, did you have to do that?" or "why don't you just ignore that?" >> i think so. i don't think every family members always agrees with absolutely everything. what i can tell you is my father's twitter is an incredible vehicle for him. i think that mentality-- maybe does he go too far once in a while? sure. >> reporter: comment had you're president of the united states, a tweet, 140 characters, could really change the courseave country. it could start a war.
it could start a dispute. it could put companies out of business. it comes with great responsibility. >> it can do a lot of things. it did do a lot of positives and i think it can be harnessed and used amazingly well, and i think that's what he's going to do. >> reporter: and even though president trump is now in the business of running the country, questions still remain about potential conflicts of interest in the business he says he's leaving behind. do you really believe he's not going to be involved and say, "how are you doing? what are you doing?" do you really believe that? >> i do. listen, he has the biggest task in the world ahead of him. there's noct bicker than the presidency of the united states. >> reporter: but the trump organization is his baby, eric. how does he just turn that off? and for you, not to be able to pick up the phone and call him about advice. >> sure, well, listen he turns it off in that he has to have trust in us, and we're going to do a great job. >> reporter: are you nervous? >> no, honestly, i'm excited, to tail the truth. >> reporter: we hear that all of the trump family will be spending the first night in the white house. is that true? >> it's true.
>> reporter: how many people is that? what are you all going to be doing? >> it's ivanka, don, myself, tiffany, melainia, and we're going to be there together as family and it will be amazing and a nice little kind of send off. for me this whole thing will be bittersweet. i'll be here in new york and i'm going to miss him tremendously. we have spent so much time together here in the company and it's going to be different not having him walk down the halls every day and pop in unexpected and not calling up his extension and immediately getting him on the phone. but he has a much higher goal, and that's of far greater importance. see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate

continued into the afternoon, protests erupted on the streets of washington. some of the demonstrations turned violent and chaotic. one group even set a car on fire. >> tomorrow, about 200,000 people are expected to descend on washington for a massive women's march. 61% of americans in a cbs news poll out this week say that mr. trump will divide the country. peter van sant shows us how the harsh rhetoric of the campaign has caused anxiety and fear.
>> reporter: just 25 miles from the nation's capital, a group of 10- and 11-year-olds have been thinking a lot about this day. tell me your feelings today. donald trump has been inaugurated as president of the united states. >> i actually feel really scared. but i try not to think about it. >> i think it's different now since donald trump's president. i think there has been an increase of racist people. >> in the last year i've heard people who said things that i won't say because i know i can't say them, and i know even if i could say them, i wouldn't. >> reporter: many adults would agree and argue that during the presidential campaign... >> when mexico sends its people, they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> reporter: ...donaldonald trus blunt talk unleashed a crude side of our american identity
that some thought were buried in our past. >> we have to have a temporary ban on muslims coming into this country. i'm sorry. >> reporter: and all this tough talk has certainly been noticed by these fifth graders. here at the steppedwick elementary school in montgomery c.e.o., maryland. they represent the diversity that is the united states. lynn's mother is from the african nation of togo. giovanni's parents are from nicaragua and peru. >> now that we have a new president, people are, like, thinking wrong, and, like, doing stuff badder. >> reporter: norah's parents came here from indonesia. >> when i heard donald trump first became elected, i felt a bit shook. >> reporter: perry's mom and dad are from cameroon. >> i'm scared some day he's going to do what he said and he's going to take people away. >> reporter: even brian is worried, and his parents are
from maryland. >> the things he said about other people is not what a president should say. >> i had overheard students talking about negative things that they had heard about mexicans, and in my classroom, i actually had mexican students. >> reporter: teacher melinda moiier, asked her student to write poems about what they heard people saying about them, poems that were turned into this short video called "the lie." >> the lie: muslims are terrorists. >> all black people are thieves. >> people from mexicans bring nothing good. >> latinos can't speak listen well. >> all of the words in the film are their own. it's what they wanted to share and what they wanted others to know. >> reporter: give me a sense of when you watched "the lie" for the first time. >> i broke into tears and i'd heard the entire poetry presentation how many times? >> reporter: peggy pasture is the school principle. her son kevin, a professional filmmaker producedly the video. >> you should know, not all
muslims are terrorists. >> when my dad pulls up the news and i just hear "muslims are terrorists, muslims are bad" i just feel really heartbroken. >> it makes me kind of angry, and i really just want to stand up for them but, like, it's really hard to because, you know, i can't-- i'm just a small person in a big world. >> reporter: the sad truth is that montgomery county has seen an epidemic of hate incidents in the past year. >> we saw about a 32% increase from last year. and the increase occurred right after the election. >> reporter: county police chief tom manger. >> for some folks, this notion of civility has just gone out the window. and these folks feel empowered now to say and do hateful things. >> reporter: days after the election, at the predominantly immigrant episcopal church of our savior in nearby silver
spring, this graffiti appeared. robert harvey is the rector. >> one little boy came up to me after the 10:00 service was over and he looked right at that message that was written on the brick wall "trump nation, whites only," and he said, "is this the way it's going to be now?" >> reporter: it is not an exaggeration to say that among the tens of millions of people who did not vote for donald trump, there is a sense of apprehension, even fear. one of those stories is here in mckinney, texas. as she took the stage to give her valedictorian speech last june-- >> i'd like to offer you a different kind of speech. >> reporter: 19-year-old marisa martinez was on top of the world, headed to yale university on a full scholarship. but she felt it important to let her classmates and eventually, the country, in on her biggest secret. >> on july 11, it will be exactly six years since i moved to mckinney from mexico city, where i was born and raised.
i am one of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the shadows of the united states. >> reporter: why did you decide to come out so publicly and in that moment? what was the thinking? >> the way i saw it was that maybe i could change people's minds. i didn't want them to think that all we are, are rapists and criminals because that's not true. >> reporter: her emigration status was not an issue for yale, but it was for some people on twitter. >> larissa martinez is not brave or strong. she is a thief, and there's only way way to deal with thieves like her, and then they posted this picture. "you have to go back." >> reporter: now, larissa is worried because by coming out of the shadows, she has exposed her 11-year-old sister, andrea, and their mother. in 2010, all three flew to texas on tourist visas, fleeing, their mom says, an abusive husband.
no wall would have stopped them. they simply stayed here illegally and since then, have behaved pretty much like everyone else. >> i pay my taxes and i do everything we have to do. we are not bad. we just want to have, like, a happy, safe life. >> reporter: larissa and her sister have applied for juvenile immigration visas, but the girls and their mother can be deported at any time. >> i believe that everything we build day by day can be gone like this. >> reporter: you're really worried. >> yes. >> reporter: you don't know what the future holds? >> no. >> reporter: what kind of america do you hope to grow up in? >> i want an america where things like hating people for their race won't exist, and everybody is able to get along
with each other. >> i just want it to be nice and quiet so everybody could have their own chance. >> i want to become an american. >> that dream hasn't died yet.

>> president trump and first lady melania trump are capping off the inauguration with celebrations and dances. now, they're scheduled to arrive at the liberty ball, one of three that they plan to attend tonight. things are running, john, as you know, a little behind schedule so they're still at the white
house. put we're told the first song they're going to dance to of their choice is frank sinatra's "my way." >> perfectly fitting for a candidate who did that. the balls remind us this is a day of great joy for millions of people, he made so many emotional connections and all the pomp and circumstance that went towards that message. there is the other side of him doing it his own way, those who didn't vote for him, his disruptive, uncompromising message today, that probably didn't comfort them. >> it will be interesting to see what happens going forward. we're really just getting started on this new chapter in all of our lives, really. article two of our constitution has been satisfied. we have a new president, as you know, but mr. trump's inaugural address mended few fences, and while many embrailsd his call for radical change, much of the nation remains a little rattled tonight. so what now? we went in search of american voices. are ( applause )
>> dear president trump. >> reporter: from the glistening avenues of the capitol, to the homes and heartland. >> ...i want you to know that we fought really hard for you, and we will continue to fight for your conservative message. i can't even believe it. that makes meantime to cry. >> dear president trump. >> reporter: american voices rang out. >> i come from two might go migm working parents and they deserve to have a voice. we are the american dream. >> reporter: on this day... >> this is your day. >> reporter: ...because of this man... >> this is your celebration. >> reporter: there is hope. >> i think that he is going to lead the country and be inclusive. >> dear president trump. >> reporter: and there is fear. >> he has put being muslim at odds with being american. and for me, being muslim is the highest form of being american. i am your citizen, but i wonder
if you're really my president. >> reporter: burning conversation engulfed the nation. >> no k.k.k. no fascist u.s.a. >> not a happy day. >> reporter: from citizens to superstars. >> but a day that will have a sunset like every other day. >> reporter: award-winning director of "selma." >> it's up to forward-thinking people who believe in justice and dignity to determine what our days will be like going forward. discomfort is action, educating ourourselves is action, and allf those things will eventually culminate in change. >> to see donald trump, the first reality star president in the white house, it's very surreal. so, but, hey, man, that's america. that's how we do it. >> reporter: producer-comedian, larry wilmore. >> i am most concerned that this is an impetuous presidency that
we're under. we're going to be on this ride and we don't know if this thing is going to go off the traction. we don't know what's going to happen. >> reporter: how did we come to this place? >> donald trump, he tapped into a very visceral feeling in a lot of people. >> i see you and i hear you. >> nobody had said that to half the population. and "i'm going to make your pain, whatever it is, stop." that it powerful. >> reporter: how do we heal? conservative talk radio titan glenn beck. >> we have to have, as lincoln said, with charity for all and malice toward none. we have to get rid of the malice. we have to find our way back to each other. >> for me, my answer is to resist. every time something is said, i think it's important to speak out about it. it's important to talk about what challenges us. >> my hope is we start realizing
that i'm not a democrat american or a republican american. i'm an american-american. >> if i had one thing to ask or tell the president it is always seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly. >> donald trump began day one of his presidency in the same uncompromising way he ran his campaign. now, as he begins to govern, will he be able to deliver on his vision and can he achieve it his own way? >> i like what larry wilmore said. "he, this is america, this is how we do it." the same country that elected barack obama, has elected donald j. trump, and it really is democracy in action. >> that's right. >> there's something to be said about that. it wasave transition of power today. before we go, we'd really like to thank the jones day law firm for this window on washington. this is a gorgeous place. there will be more inauguration coverage on your local cbs station. >> and our streaming network,
man (over bullhorn): stop right there! (guns clicking) hpd! drop your weapons! move away from the fence! we're in pursuit of a suspect. stand down. we can't do that. your suspect is no longer in the united states of america.
