tv Election Night 2016 MSNBC November 9, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST
hello, everyone, i'm alex witt here at msnbc headquarters in new york. >> and i'm ali velshi. donald trump is elected president of the united states. trump winning critical states like ohio, florida, and north carolina. >> all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say, it is time for us to come together as one united people. it's time. >> at clinton's gathering tonight in new york city, stunned disbelief. the candidate herself not appearing in public. she is, though, expected to speak later on today. >> trump will take office with one very important asset, his fellow republicans contain control of both houses of
congress. >> in one of the most shocking u.s. elections in modern political history, donald trump overcame all the odds and defeated hillary clinton. as the 45th president-elect, trump promised unity after a dark, tumultuous race for the white house. >> we must reclaim our country's destiny and dream big and bold and daring. we have to do that. we're going to dream of things for our country, and beautiful things, and successful things once again. i want to tell the world community that while we'll always put america's interests
first, we'll deal fairly with everyone, with everyone. all people and all other nations. we will seek common ground, not hostility. partnership, not conflict. >> joining us now from trump tower in new york is jacob rascon. it is now president-elect donald trump. what's the scene where you are? >> reporter: we haven't gone to bed just yet. we just walked over to trump tower. in front of trump tower we see a crowd of a couple dozen trump supporters with their signs. this is no less than an astonishing political upset. even members of his staff at that victory party told me none of us really believed this would happen. of course, that's not entirely true. there were other aides who did say they did believe this would happen. and, of course, there are his supporters. i've talked to hundreds, if not thousands of them over the months, and if you spend time
listening to these people, you will find that what they feel, this anger, this being upset at washington, is very real, is very widespread, and we saw that tonight with such a big wave of support for donald trump, unlike anything that the polls were predicting. and, of course, they are celebrating something that they believe is a sound defeat for the political class, the media, and all of that, but tonight when we heard from donald trump, we heard a different donald trump, there was no drain the swamp, lock her up. no rigged system talk. it was a very different trump. president-elect trump. take a listen. >> 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. 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 was only just over 24 hours ago that he was saying that hillary clinton was the most corrupt politician that had ever run for office, that she shouldn't have been allowed to run, and now he is praising her for a hard fought campaign. we saw something similar to this during the primaries when he lambasted and eviscerated his rivals, but then once he beat them, he was nicer to them. that appears to be what he's doing now, and as i asked different trump aides and trump staff, this looks like a different donald trump. they said, well, this is president-elect donald trump. the big question, of course, can donald trump keep this up. is this what his plan was like the primaries to beat his opponent and then to be a little
nicer. of course, only time will tell that, but he's gone from the golden escalator inside trump tower now to the white house. guys? >> jacob, i know you just walked over there and i know it's not much of a distance from where the party was. i hope you're not going to walk around manhattan at this point. you get to go home and go to bed at some point? nice night of reporting from you, jacob. >> reporter: i'm not sure about that. after some live shots this morning, later this afternoon we'll get a nap i'm sure. >> good to talk to you, jacob rascon. >> good for an all-nighter. >> this has been an all night for a lot of people in this country. >> another two joining us now in the conversation, former governor howard dean, rick tyler, all right, governor, i'll reach out to you first here. as you think about this, what are the most salient points, how did we get here, how did trump pull this off? >> well, you know, this is a lot like brexit on the other side of
the atlantic. there are a lot of angry people left behind by globalization. they dislike the political class intensely. they wanted change and they got it. you know, as far as i'm concerned, this is, obviously, not the kind of change i wanted, but on the other hand you have to hand it to democracy. this is the peaceful transfer of power and doesn't always get transferred to the people you want it to be transferred to. >> rick, you know, this is much bigger than a repudiation of hillary clinton, this is a repudiation of an establishment of a lot of things. you also had a message on the outside. what does this tell you? what does what happened tonight and the magnitude of it tell you about the shape we're in and the republican party? >> people really wanted change and people say how much worse can it get, and they decided that hillary clinton in many ways was representative of the status quo, the continuation of the obama administration, and the question was whether people were going to accept the status quo, which they didn't want, or go for change but uncertain,
unknown, and what hillary tried to say was scary change. they decided to blow it up. they decided they had enough of washington, enough of politicians, it's historic, it's a remarkable achievement. it's the first time a president who does not come from either military background or political background has made it to the white house. never happened before. >> yeah. governor, i want to look at some exit polls, and we do have some solid numbers there that said all the polls from the last 18 months. not so much. there should be some explanation of that, but the exit polls show trump did better with women than expected. trump won by 19 points there. is that a shock to you? >> it is a shock. do you have that number divided by education? >> do not have that yet. we do know that a lot of the without college degree voters, certainly the white males, those went to donald trump, but we don't have this broken down yet. >> yeah. it's hard to talk about the
polls when you don't know what the cross tabs are. i think it's safe to say that the polling establishment has been ship wrecked in this entire election. they couldn't get the primaries right and they, obviously, didn't get the election right either. >> but women in general, sir, when you think about the rhetoric that donald trump used and the controversies that he faced with women throughout, now we are seeing these key groups, i don't know if you can see it where you are, conservative women, white women, white protestant women and white women 45 to 64. so females just in general are you surprised? >> well, again, without knowing what the cross tabs, i'd be shocked if women with college educations voted for trump, but, you know, again, we're talking about something we don't know what we're talking about here. these numbers are very nice, but they are meaningless without looking at the cross tabs. >> rick, let me ask you something about the candidate. now we're talking about
president-elect trump, he's got to be thinking about this. we heard talk about rudy giuliani, chris christie, space for ted cruz, will he be looking to some of his opponents in the race, what's he have to do to build a cabinet? >> this is what everybody is waiting for. we saw a taste of what a president-elect donald trump looks like. most people have to say they like that donald trump, that he seemed -- >> his speech, his acceptance speech was a different tone. >> he was magnanimous, he was inclusive, he said he wanted to unite the country, but we've heard a lot of things from donald trump. if he can truly do that, but it's a lot of work. this country is seriously divided and you can see, but donald trump is very successful. if you look at, say, eastern ohio, he's winning that. look, all over the map he's winning places that obama won. wisconsin, michigan,
pennsylvania. >> but ted cruz was still the biggest thorn in his side until he got the nomination. is ted cruz going to be inside or outside the tent? >> take donald trump at his word, he'll be inside the tent and he had endorsed him ultimately and so we'll see. i don't know if ted cruz would be interested in a cabinet position or not. that would be up to him. he's up for re-election now in this new cycle we'll start talking about very, very quickly, which will be a big advantage to republicans, because democrats -- republicans are only defending eight senate seats this time and the democrats are defending 30 something. i think 36, 38 seats this time. so it looks very good for the republican future right now. >> already prognosticating about the 2018 election. >> how about that? >> governor, i want to ask you about hillary clinton. you know her very well. what role does she play going forward? does she go the way of al gore, depart politics, pick up some
sort of cause like the environment? what do you think she will do next? what should she do next? does she have a role to play to unify this country past a concession speech some time tomorrow? >> i don't know the answer to that. only she could know the answer to that. you know, i lost one of these, but i didn't get nearly as far as she did. this has been a lifetime of work for her to try to become the first woman president, so i think she's going to think about this for a while before she makes a decision. i have no idea what she's going to do. >> rick, let me ask you, i'm a money guy. this morning i'm very concentrated on what's going on in the markets, but as i tell people, the markets come back quickly, don't spend too much time on it. president-elect trump says he wants to repeal obamacare and do something with the supreme court. does he really do all these things? they always promise they are doing something in the first 100 days. >> the base of the party expects him to do something for the supreme court. people who voted for trump said
that was one of their most important or extremely important issues on the economy. we'll have to see. remember, all these things on the economy have to go through the congress. now we've got a republican congress, so we'll see how quickly they can move on these things. obamacare, for as much as people said he's covered people, people aren't using the insurance, because again, it's so horrifically expensive. >> taking away the 20 million people that don't have coverage. is he going to fix it? >> i don't know. there's a lot of people, so gingrich has been around him, gingrich is for a free market model, because free market seems to work everywhere else. we've never tried a free market model. we've tried the government model, tried the halfway government model, so that's going to be a real challenge, but that's going to require you have very good relations with the republican congress and can they move together? but they have to win an argument with the country first. >> governor, you're a doctor. looks like the referendum on
obamacare is that people don't seem to be -- they seem to be okay with somebody changing it or doing something. what's the best answer for people that like obamacare to argue that trump does? >> the big thing is pre-existing conditions. if he's going to repeal obamacare and people are going to be denied health care because they had high blood pressure or cancer, that's not going to go well. this is like the brexit vote. people did this because they wanted to kick the table over and haven't thought about the consequences yet. i thought james was interesting in the previous interview talking about the huge amount he's going to add to the deficit if he does what he's going to do on infrastructure. that's going to stimulate the infrastructure, but instethat's problem. if he gives tax cuts, that's going to alienate people who voted for him, because they believe they got screwed by the existing economic situation,
which benefits those at the top. we don't know what donald trump's going to do, because he's changed his position 97 times. my attitude is, let's see if we can find common ground with him. one thing i'm glad we have still a filibuster proof minority in chuck schumer, who's one of the toughest negotiators in congress and very smart, is going to be the minority leader and he's going to have to work with chuck schumer and chuck schumer will work with him, and i think that's what we should do for the sake of the country, but you have to find common ground. we're not going to give on core principles like human rights for everybody and like making sure people who need help get help, and i think rewriting the tax code to benefit the top is exactly what we don't need and hopefully we won't do that. >> all right, governor howard dean, thank you so much for your time. thank you, gentlemen. >> thank you. coming up, reaction from the global markets after news of donald trump's win. what voters should expect when u.s. markets open later this morning.
highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals. we're going to rebuild our infrastructure. which will become, by the way, second to none. >> keep that in mind. we're going to talk about infrastructure. in about four hours the u.s. stock markets will open, but the global markets were very quick to respond to donald trump's defeat of hillary clinton sinking in anticipation of a trump presidency. i want to bring in kenny palkari, the director of o'neal securities, an old friend of ours. you and i were together at the new york stock exchange thinking and discussing the various possibilities. this was an outlier in terms of possibilities, but japan, the stocks sunk. when this news came out, the nikkei was way down. then as european markets opened, they were down less, and now we're going to see a lower open at the new york stock exchange, right? >> right, but not nearly what it was. at one point futures were down 5%. they were just bumping at the
limit, so, therefore -- >> 600 or 700 points at the open. >> probably closer to 1,000 points, really. and that was because i think it was so unexpected, and i think at that point when that was happening he was so far in the lead that it almost looked like she was going to be able to catch up, so that made it even worse, looked like it was potentially going to be a landslide. when she started to catch up and it got tighter, that's when you saw the futures back off a little bit and rally. >> it's not gone. let's put up a list. these are my five reasons why the market is going to go down. number one, the market didn't expect trump to win. markets don't like things they don't expect. >> that's exactly right. not about is it good news or bad news, it's about the expectation the market has. this was clearly not the expectation. >> trade talk. there are people that worry the wall, the trade, all this kind of stuff, we are a nation of traders. >> right. do i really think -- in the end
i don't think he's going to get half done what he said. he talked a big game during the campaign. >> ripping up trade deals. >> i think he had to. in reality it's not going to work that way. we don't know that yet, but i saw a different, you know, in his speech last night i saw kind of a different trump. maybe he was exhausted, it was 3:00 in the morning, but i don't get the sense it's going to be nearly that fight. >> rust belt states with that talk. >> yes. >> that talk of i'm going to help get your jobs back. >> if ford motor goes to mexico he's charging 35%. that potentially could happen, but the mexican futures market were actually positive this morning as i was coming in. our futures were down. mexico was up. >> that's interesting. that's interesting. we were showing a poll that shows the economy continues to be the most important issue. they broke for hillary clinton by a bit. the third reason on my list is something you and i did discuss. markets like divided governments. they like when the white house -- >> the balance.
>> the checks and balances. >> exactly right. in fact, although it was really republican sweep in the senate they don't have enough control to prevent the filibuster, right, so, therefore, there's still some balance in the senate, although you can argue that this was, you know, if you're going to vote for trump, if you had a sense i'm going for trump, i'm going all-out right down the line. how could you vote for trump and start to vote for someone in the opposite party? if you decided, you decided, and i think that's clearly what happened. >> the final two points are joined. that is trump says that his policies are going to be so great that he's going to have 4, 5, 6% gdp growth and as howard dean says, if he doesn't, and that's hard to get, it increases debt. if he gets 6% growth, which we haven't seen in decades, you know, 6% growth is in india territory. >> that's right. real growth for us should be somewhere in the 3% to 4% range consistent. >> you might get it in a spurt. >> in a spurt, but not for a
consistent period of time. steady 3% to 4% is where we've always been and that's where we should aim for. you're right, if he starts spending all kind of money he's correct, he's going to blow the budget. >> even tonight in his victory speech, i'm going to grow the economy, i'm going to double the economy. he's not explained how he does that. is it even possible? >> listen, at the moment our economy's running just up 2% growth. if he doubles it, we're 4. 4 is in the range we've been, so that's not really so much a stretch, but if he aims for more than that or thinks he can do more than that, that's when it becomes more of an issue. >> average investors, what do they do with this? how will this affect the average guy out there? >> here's what you should do if you're somebody not in this market but have 401(k), savings elsewhere, do not panic. this is the last thing you should do, pick up the phone and call your broker and say sell everything. >> lock in your loss. >> >> don't do that.
look what happened in brexit in june. we had the 5% move down, global markets, then v shape right back up. actually, the uk market is higher today than it was when the brexit happened. >> one month after 9/11 before those markets -- >> only thing i would suggest if you're somebody who's a long-term investor, take advantage. the funniest part of it, stocks will go on sale this morning. you run in and buy clothes, you don't go to sell, you buy them. when stocks are on sale, people get nervous and start to sell. exactly the wrong thing they should be doing. >> good point. >> doesn't seem like a guy who was up all night. >> have a little coffee there? >> i've had none yet. >> always a pleasure to see you. thank you for extending the conversation we had on the floor of the stock exchange into this morning. i'll see you back down there later today. coming up next, the voice of the voters. many unhappy with the choices they had in this year's election.
>> like they say, hillary is corrupt, there's no question about that, and trump is crazy. there's no question about that. so it's tough to actually vote for either one of them. >> and among the several propositions on the ballot, voters in massachusetts and nevada approve measures legalizing marijuana. he gets a lot of compliments.
he wears his army hat, walks around with his army shirt looking all nice. and then people just say, "thank you for serving our country" and i'm like, that's my dad. male vo: no one deserves a warmer welcome home. that's why we're hiring 10,000 members of the military community. i'm very proud of him. male vo: welcome to new beginnings. comcast. i was praying. i was actually sitting there praying that i would trade my soul for my grandchildren's future. >> a latino voter there in florida upset about the results of tuesday's election on this unbelievable night for at least half across the country. trump's win came down to the all-important battleground states and he practically swept
them. we have two correspondents covering the battlegrounds. morgan, with a very good morning to you, let's start with you. >> reporter: good morning. 51% to 47%. that's the margin by which donald trump took the state of north carolina and it was called just after 11:00 p.m. last night and what we're seeing in terms of the breakdown of the numbers, very similar to the demographic shift we saw happen nationally. for example, trump tended to take the older white male voters who were living in rural areas here in north carolina, whereas clinton tended to turn out the democrats who were younger. minorities living in urban areas like here in mecklenburg county, again, we're at a diner in charlotte, but people waiting up all night to see the results. take a listen to what they thought after they announced president-elect donald trump. >> he has this kind of, like, personality lathat's, like, all
about him. he doesn't care about what other people think. that's what i've gotten from this whole election process. >> i feel he doesn't have respect for women, especially since he has daughters and a wife, i don't think, like, he comprehends what he says what younger generations are going to grow up seeing. he doesn't respect that. >> i voted for trump, but that's all i can say. >> the guy you wanted to win won. you're feeling good today. >> yeah, i feel good. >> reporter: all right, so the people we've been speaking to here on the ground in north carolina say they are not entirely confident that the state can, in fact, come together after this decision because of just how divisive it was on both sides. we're feeling strong emotions here in the what was a battleground state of north carolina. back to you. >> morgan, thanks very much for that. steve, what are voters telling you this morning?
>> reporter: well, ali, it's been about 24 hours since we last spoke, i haven't slept since then, but hot off the presses, there it is, trump wins. yeah, just came out. so we're seeing now, you know, what we talked about about 24 hours ago, those collared counties, bucks, montgomery, chester, these counties tend to go and they are tend to be taken by the presidential candidate who sweeps the state, so generally if you win these four counties outside of suburban philadelphia, you typically since 1980, you win the state. clinton won the counties. she won pittsburgh, she won philadelphia, she wins those counties, she wins basically the edges of pennsylvania, but she still loses. i think a lot of republican strategists and people here are saying she did not account for what the county and the country went through with this revolution that donald trump seized on. and so we're just talking to people here at a diner, it's
about 5:30 in the morning, talking to folks. sir, peter erskin, how do you feel? >> i feel i'm glad it's over. >> reporter: do you feel -- were you in support, were you happy donald trump won? >> i was in support of the democratic process and i will certainly be able to listen to what mr. trump has to say. i certainly hope he modifies some of his approaches to public speaking when he gets to the white house. he's pretty coarse sometimes. >> reporter: it's just the public speaking that upsets you, not the rhetoric about deportation, the wall, women? >> he was harsh on women, no question about that. pretty harsh on women. i think certain -- a lot of us feel the idea of having a legal means to get to citizenship is a good thing. question is, how do you do that without getting rid of everybody, as he said he wanted to do, deport everybody who was an illegal alien.
that's pretty hard if there's 11 million. i don't see how you're going to do that. >> reporter: very hard. do you think he has the temperament to bring this country together? >> he certainly -- i just heard a brief clip this morning when i woke up from his acceptance speech in new york, and he certainly had a different tone, but you know, whether that will last as he gets into a position of power and whether he really will modify his approach to the other side and allow the what will now be a loyal democratic opposition. >> reporter: yeah, yeah. >> whether he will modify his speech and listen to them, that's a question. >> reporter: we shall see, thank you, sir, appreciate it. also pat toomey, republican senator, held his seat. that's another big victory for the republicans in this state and country. back to you. >> steve, when we talked yesterday, i spent a lot of my time in montgomery county.
generally, montgomery county, philadelphia, which hillary clinton took by a landslide, erie county, and pittsburgh, that usually adds up to more than the rest of the state. it was a real mystery to a lot of people in pennsylvania how she lost pennsylvania. >> reporter: it does, and talking to the folks and even republican strategists on the ground here, they would admit that clinton's ground game was significantly stronger than donald trump's ground game. when we were here two days ago, we saw people canvassing for clinton. and the fact that bore out, so this is really a unique situation. again, we haven't seen a win like this since the '80s. >> steve, thanks a million and thanks also to morgan radford. just yesterday the headline was an uptick in latino turnout. today the headline, regardless of that turnout, the country just elected donald trump as president. 65% of hispanic voters chose hillary clinton. 88% of this year's african-american voters chose hillary clinton. but donald trump was supported overwhelmingly by white voters
with no college degree. that's a lot of divides to deal with. with all those divides, can this country come together the way donald trump said we should in his speech? joining us now, msnbc contributor josh barro, paul reyes. tell her how many hours i've been up. >> he was with me yesterday morning at this time. >> 27th hour here or something, sorry about that, raul, and kate martell in d.c. got that part right. >> for anyone offended by the term used by our guest of steve paterson, he talked about illegal aliens, that's not the vernacular we use. that having been said, let's talk about the victory speech, guys, because trump called for everybody to come together in this country, yet given the things he said, many minority voters out there, they voted for clinton. they are generally fearful what comes next for them. raul, your reaction to that.
>> looking at the speech, to me personally, he struck me, like many of us, he's tired, to use one of his phrases, low energy. there was nothing offensive. he was somewhat subdued and definitely stayed on his teleprompter. that's fine. and i heard some of the different people who voted for him saying, well, maybe he will be a different person from what we saw at certain stages of the campaign, but you have to remember, this is an election, as we talk about it in the abstract and we're debating certain policies, whatever, this is an election that is so deeply and intensely personal to latinos. two-thirds of american latinos know someone who's undocumented. this is something that's really been devastating to our community in the sense that, number one, right now in families you have huge arguments with parents and grandparents telling their young people you should never have signed up for that daca because now the government has our address and you have families with mixed status where the parents are undocumented and the children are citizens truly in fear.
it is a question mark what trump is going to do if he's going to build that wall, who and when -- >> he'll split up families, right? >> we don't know. even though we might hope it to be a certain way or play out that way, right now i tell you, so many latinos home, this is devastating, absolutely devastating. >> kate, i was spending my night looking at markets, but i was also keeping one eye on social media and the whole concept of fear and, you know, worry about what america is going to look like now, are we really two tribes, them and us, whatever you happen to think them is and whatever us is? how do we come together when you see the numbers that we just looked at about how people voted? >> that's exactly the question, and those numbers are startling, the fact that the country has become so polarized at this point. now what's going to be interesting to see, can he bring the numbers back and how can he bring the country together? the way he's going to do it, i'm going to be interested to see who he brings into his cabinet. is he going to have a newt
gingrich secretary of state, rudy giuliani, or is he going to bring in some democrats, is he going to try to do this? what's more important for the news is not just they won the white house, but the house and the senate and the way they can start to get some of these through. it's going to be really tough to get immigration through, but you know they are going to try. it's going to be really interesting how can they bring it together and donald trump, i will say, he had a good speech. it was not polarizing compared to the past week, it was hand up in the air, provocative, the old donald trump we saw in the primary. this was a very much more presidential. so we might see, like you were just saying, a more presidential, more straight forward republican or is he going to be like he was in the campaign trail and continue to be polarizing? >> it may be he understands the gravity of what has just happened. i mean, the rhetoric he's put out there, you're shaking your head, you don't think so. >> it's never been the case donald trump is incapable of
being gracious. he just won, why should he be mad at anybody? he doesn't need to attack hillary clinton anymore, but the presidency is a difficult job where he's going to face opposition. >> and insults. >> yeah. i hold very little hope he's going to deal well with that. we've seen him right now under the least pressure we'll see him under over the next four years. >> going to be gracious -- >> this man's 70 years old, we know what his personality and temperament is like. it's not going to be an easy ride. >> excuse me. think about this when we're talking, trying to project what we hope trump will be. we saw this summer when he went after a very distinguished federal judge who happens to be mexican-american, blatantly saying things that were blatantly bigoted, racist statements. >> and false. >> we saw him threatening to use the power of the executive branch to lock up hillary clinton. this is something we heard of, he would open an investigation into her and lock her up, so this is a man -- and i spoke this week with the president of one of our national bar
associations. they say they are very fearful of having a chief executive who does not just respect the basic structure and functions of our government. >> thanks very much for that. i was trying to help out by calling you paul, help you fit in. >> long day. >> josh and kate, thanks to both of you, as well. coming up next, republicans are keeping control of congress, what's that mean to the conservative agenda? does speaker paul ryan end up with more power or less? first, how news organizations around the world are reporting the election. this headline "trump stuns world." this reminder, special edition of "morning joe" is coming up at the top of the hour with a live studio audience. you don't want to miss it. >> "snl" studio. pretty cool.
both the house and the senate will remain in republican control after a political stunner, donald trump winning the presidency. and at this hour in the senate, democrats hold 45 seats compared to republicans 51. democrats picked up one seat in illinois after republican senator mark kirk lost to tammy duckworth. in nevada, the first latina elected to the upper chamber of congress, this after defeating congressman joe heck. she'll fill the seat of harry reid, the democratic minority leader, who is retiring after a full three decades in the senate. joining me now, elise jordan, nbc news and msnbc political
analyst and colleen john pierre, i said that right, right? i had a croissant, i think. ladies, i'm just curious how this is all going to work with donald trump overseeing congress, talking with them, working with republicans, who ran in the opposite direction screaming from him. how does this work? paul ryan. >> well, the first thing i would say is that with donald trump, none of us should expect to know anything that's going -- >> we're asking a lot of questions today. >> at the end of the day, i really think that donald trump's ideology leans more democratic. he was a democrat for most of his life. he's not a conservative. republicans were saying that if donald trump lost, this was going to be a referendum that we didn't nominate a true conservative. next go around in 2020 we'd have to nominate a true conservative. well donald trump won, what's that say? >> ted cruz's argument. >> exactly, that's what people were looking for going forward, so i do think it's going to be
interesting how the party ideologues navigate donald trump, who really most of his life has been pro choice. he's been for socialized medicine. it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out. >> and so there's two constituencies, right? how's he navigate the republicans in congress and how does he navigate the democrats in congress. >> i got to tell you, i'm still in shock and i'm processing the whole thing, because what we saw from donald trump during the primary was trumpism that was incredibly hateful and divisive, so i'm curious, it's a big unknown as to how will he bring in. he talked about the democrats and bringing them together in his speech, but i got to tell you, i'm concerned and worried. i do want to say that we had another historical win in california, pamela harris, second african-american woman -- >> all of these things got sidelined. there were interesting ballot measures and people, but the world is concentrated on one
thing and one thing only, donald trump. >> and it's a shocker. might help a lot of people with this loss. >> like i said, it's incredibly shocking and i think we're all still processing. >> we talk about the things we're concentrating on, domestically a lot of people will be thinking about the health care law. does this get repudiated, taken over? what about nuclear, the arms deal that was negotiated with iran? what happens with that? >> it's the unknown. >> i think that donald trump has made a lot of promises. he promised to throw out the iran deal in his first day in office. >> first day. >> very busy first day. he's promised to throw that out, obamacare. those are promises that are going to be hard for him to walk away. building the wall is easier because building a wall is such a process that i think he can push that down the road, down the road. he can do some kind of other immigration reform, perhaps, but who knows. >> my canadian friends say they are building the wall on the northern side.
>> their website crash. >> the canadian immigration website crashed. let me ask you this, when we were talking to governor dean earlier, he made a comment i wasn't expected to hear, he sounded a more conciliatory tone in saying we're not going to do things as democrats we don't want to do, but we're going to try to find common ground. we sort of lost the idea of even looking for common ground in the last few years. >> the thing this election showed us is we are a polarized country, right? we are very much divided, and something needs to be done. and look, the obama coalition that hillary clinton went for doesn't exist anymore. barack obama is one of a kind politician who was able to bring that coalition, so democrats really have to, after we grieve, we have to grieve, i feel very bad for our field organizers out there who worked very hard for more than a year to really put this ground game together, that we have to figure out what does our coalition look like. what is the map for democrats, and that's going to be imperative.
>> all right, ladies, thank you so much. elise jordan and karine john-pierre. >> loves that. >> french in the morning. >> my mother was born in paris. there you have it. anyway, do check this out, donald trump has updated his twitter bio to reflect his new title, there you see it, president-elect of the united states. >> i don't think i updated my bio to say i work here. i'll get on that. the reaction from around the world to the trump victory. a live report from moscow next. and a very special edition of "morning joe" is coming up at the top of the hour. live studio audience. you don't want to miss it right here on msnbc.
moscow. good day to you, lucy. tell me more about putin's reaction. >> reporter: good morning. it's shock and disbelief across the globe as world leaders try to adjust to a brave, new, and frankly uncertain world, but here in moscow, guys, donald trump is feeling the love. his election victory comes at a time when u.s.-russian relations are the worst since the end of the cold war. now all that is going to change. that's at least according to president putin, who spoke on live russian television moments ago, and on the streets of moscow. take a look. >> trump is really kind to russia, and for me it's the most important. trump is really kind to russia, and for me it's the most important, and i say that donald trump maybe will be good. >> it means a lot, actually. russian people here say about him, like, a friend or something like a partnership with him,
because obama, have a bad relationship with russia. >> i don't expect huge changes. i guess it needs some time for improvement. >> but anyway, the u.s. has its o own, it doesn't depend what kind of president will be. >> reporter: you don't think things would really change under him? >> a little bit. >> reporter: so there you have it, a mix of reactions there. this election was front and center on state television. people were paying attention very closely. folks here saw that clinton, they portrayed clinton as someone who would start new wars, would lecture on democracy. they see someone as who will leave russia alone. they think russia will be able to do what it wants in its
that does it for us on this wednesday morning. i'm morning. >> "morning joe" is live next with the latest on all of the election results. >> i'm not running for some americans but for all americans. >> our country doesn't win anymore. we're going to start winning again. >> when there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit. >> we will make america great again. >> don't let anyone tell you that our country is weak. we're not. >> in this race, i am the law and order ca
