all got tired of seeing what was happening and we want a change but with you wanted real change. and i look so forward to tomorrow. we're going to see something that is going to be so amazing, so many people have come to washington, d.c. this started out being a small little concert and then we had the idea maybe we'll do it in front of the lincoln memorial. i done know if it's ever been done before. people came by the thousands and thousands and here we are tonight. all the way back. [ cheers and applause ] >> all the way back. so it's a movement that began -- it's a movement that started and it's a movement like we've never seen anywhere in the world they say

month of the campaign, when i travelled around to every place that you can imagine, state after state after state speech after speech, and we had ten thousand, 20,000, 30,000 people. that was never an empty seat just like tonight. we didn't have anybody would come together tonight. it was the same way. last month of the campaign, i think a lot of us new the first week of the campaign. but that last month of the campaign we knew that something special was happening. and i can only tell you this, the polls started going up, up up, but they didn't want to give us credit because
they forget about a lot of us. on the campaign, i called it the forgotten man and the for gotten women. you're not forgotten an more. that i can tell you. not forgotten any more. so i want to thank for great family, my incredible wife, melania.

the peaceful transfer of power. i'm going to help him where i can. >> turn things around what going to turn around? >> i think the first thing we need to turn around is our economy. i think he going to go full board to lower tax to make us international taxes. so he can do that with republican help. he can change some regulation. building a wall that mexico pay for it, we'll see how that works. >> do you think mexicans are going to pay for it sm. >> i don't. we're going to repeal and replace obamacare that will turn around health care. repealing is easy, relacing is hard. we should listen to president-elect about replacing and repealing at the same time not have gapes. there's a lot to do like
rebuilding our military. we need it. >> including inner cities. that where my professional career started. i want to see that happen. we're losing the war on poverty. what's he going to be for the inner cities. >> jesse jackson came by my office. i new his mother, son. >> i work for him with cnn. >> here is the deal. we were talking about a summit, a urban reconstruction summit. the idea of repairing the rods and bridge over the america, appeal to a lot of us. how do you pay for it. the fact that jesse jackson came to see me. >> he whants to work with the president. >> he wants to get a summit where the prft private sector,
president, and have a summit to reconstruct urban america. i'm a rural guy so you have to include us too. that's a good start i think. >> russia, let's talk about. we have to talk russia. the president wants working relationship with putin and the most of the other people think putin is evil. >> here what i would say, i am going to do everything i can as senator graham to pass additional sanctions. >> it sounds like president trump doesn't want that. >> we'll see how it works. i wish he would embrace it. there's a lot of vote to punish russia. they hacked into the dnc. this time it couldble another country. an attack own one party is an attack on all of us. >> we hacked into angela merkel.
>> we didn't. >> we didn't. >> this is an attack on -- >> i think that's horrible. i think hacking is horrible. >> you have to start from a position of strength if you want a relationship with russia. i'm looinging for better relationship only after they change. >> i should say in case anyone is look at the screen,s there soon to be first family. >> beautiful family. >> u.s. military singing. >> this is -- how many people in the world would die to have a moment like this where you come celebrate transfer of power. >> obamas they going to be there it's goods for them. >> hillary gave us good advice.
give him a chance. i'm not going to give him a pass when i come to things i believe it. i will not be in the forgiving mood. forgiveness is weakness when it comes to putin. >> it's beautiful. >> talk to him today. one of the things i can say without hesitation, he is the first lady and the first family represented in us in a classy way and i appreciate that. >> you can't deny the fact that the they are were acted with great dignity for the last eight years. >> absolutely. >> what about president donald trump in north korea. >> russia is not the biggest threat to the united states. it's a big threat to world
order. put the to arms race. the one place he has to watch early is north korea, you cannot allow kim jong-un to deliver war head to america. one of the biggest challenge back up statement he made on twitter. >> not going to happen. >> they have five successful tests. >> they don't have eighty to deliver it to the shores of the united states. >> how did they get that far. >> you can blame republicans or democrats for that mistake. we have a crazy man in north korea with a missile to hit our shores. what to do about north korea is the test early on. if he let's them know through china
if you cross certain red lines your region is at risk. if you done give that clear signal they're going to keep going. >> with regard to iran, your thought on that? >> it's a big deal. let i -- there are 15 nations that have it. -- he will make a bomb. here what i say, give iraq a chance to -- the russian chinese and americans should join together and provided nuclear power but control the fuel cycle.
>> huge family. >> we're looking at the trump family. >> can you imagine how he must feel. >> i can't imagine. >> i didn't get far. to have won i can only imagine the responsibility, since of pride. he came from nowhere in terms of political career and won the brass ring. we should help him. >> msnbc kcal is there. >> reporter: the crowd is the same crowd you would see at campaign rally. that's why we heard sentiment from the president-elect. tomorrow would be interesting to see what speech he gives tomorrow. the folks who came to town who did not support donald trump through and through. he going to is to expand not constrict, he has too
bring more people into the coalition. we're talking about 39% approval rating, that's historically low. >> -- >> i think it's somewhere between ten and 15,000. on the pamphlet we were hand they said they were expecting up to 200,000 people. along the national mall in washington, d.c., all the street have been close. you have people taking photo s of the monument and the concerts. you know this this is beautiful part of the of the town. we have very moving ceremony at arlington ser moan ni. >> cal, thank you, very much.
and to senator lindsey graham. mike is the co founder both interviewed the president-elect. mike, first you. your thoughts after interviewing him. >> when we saw the president-elect at trump tower. what we saw was someone who for the first time was really peopling the weight of what's coming. we're used to him being the cocky sunny presence. what we saw there. he talked about how he had some intelligence briefing. he talk about how he talked with president obama about what's coming and he realized what the job entails so many decision that only a president can make. he started ware on that. he walk to people who spent all day with him. they
can imagine him walking over the stage after the oath tomorrow and having that uh-hah moment as he signed the first paper. order nom one reorganizing. that's what he will do. >> we have seen a lot of donald trump in the last 18 months of this. what the origin of make america great again. >> he trademarked the phrase only six days after the 2012 election. i asked him about it. he said he thought about it the day after mitt romney lost in 2012. he thought about how he was going to run. and can typically for donald trump the first thing he decide to do was brand it. so he decided to trademark the phrase and finally
make america great again had the right ring. because in the middle of our interview he suddenly thinks of the slogan he wants for reflection in 2020 and while i was talking to him he summons in his lawyer to trademark that one with and without an exclaim mags point. >> when last time you spoke to him? >> it's been a while. i spoke -- >> he has your number. >> he gave out your phone number. >> are you not going to give him your new phone number are you? >> we'll see how he does in a couple of months. it meant a lot that president obama called me. so you know i'm kind of a traditional guy. i want to help
my party, my president. part of my job is to stand up for what i believe when it comes to forn policy. i think he right by north korea, and iran. i think he has russia backwards. and we'll see what happens. >> working with capitol hill is herding cattles. >> republicans are worried about primaries, democrats are worried about how nasty i need to be i. he is a fun guy to be around. i would advise him do to something obama didn't do, bring your kids, your grandkids, show them around the building. stop tweeting and start talking. >> greta, you hear people talk
about the digit bully bull pit and a potentially powerful tool calling in senator as you suggest with so little done in this administration calling in senator and calling member you can threat them if you're not go to vote for infrastructure package i'm going to tweet your going to keep me from trying make america great again or i can tweet you have helping me make america great again. he pass 20 million twitter followers. he was talking how he has 80 million across the social platform. >> the best way to have the people behind you president-elect is not being viewed very well. he needs to change his image and tweeting and threatening -- people will
respond to being conjoiled and being smooth and not threaten. >> he president-elect to go down. 40% even after bush and gor george w. bush was in a better position. >> why did he go down? >> i think because people are ready to take a breathe ask give an incoming president a chance. >> you think numbers would go up a little? >> yes. his rhetoric has been divisive. he has not done that yet. tomorrow we'll see -- oppo do that. the numbers could come up quickly. >> they say what he has been doing has been working for him.
so he reluctant to change and it's tough to answer when he says look, i have played it to here. i'm reminded of a extregs george w. bush said if you're the president why don't you do that. >> reality sets in there are 800,000 young kids who came out of the shadow at president obama's question, the dabbing ta order. if you throw them back the number will drop more. i have a bill to give him a 3 year legal status -- >> what durbin means, you can
just say when durbin -- >> what are you going to do with me and my daughter, you're not going anywhere. nobody wants a crook. here i am. if the republican says you're back in the shadows, it would be a disaster. being a wall is not going to happen. you're going to need 60 votes on the big stuff. tweeting and pressure makes sense but what's been unused is the power the office of the itself. at least for a period of time. i have been there. >> it's been interesting to see him lay down a few markers. he wants the drug companies to engage in negotiation for prices. >> how can anybody oppose
getting global prices with competition. >> pharma has rolled everybody who's tried to do it in the past. >> how by donations to parties. >> part lobby on capitol hill. >> what we mean is money. >> especially the biotech industry is in everybody's district. >> somebody called speaker of the how paul ryan, i talk to speaker ryan from his district office and he said there's more of a story to tell but how the current program works. by having a big amount of business you can get big discounts. people don't know that yet. you mean like the president-elect. so he says there's a better story to tell. the issue is more debatable than
the way it's been phrased. >> in what way? >> by having big group bulk business sometimes you can drive up better bargain that way. so he going to debate this and president-elect style has not been to not wait for the substance of the policy to take a position. we asked how to be briefed. he likes bullet points. he doesn't like 200 pages. >> that's because his instincts on everything. he real estate developer. let's move through the deal. >> the -- you can lower the cost of the fat. that stuff does matter. the fact he trying to drive down cost is a good thing. >> thank you all very much. i
hope you come back. earlier i had a chance to talk to the sean spicer, the man responsible for explaining trump's agenda to the press. >> nice to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> do you have an keys to get? > >> i know where it's located. very exciting, very humbling to be part of this administration and to help the president-elect talk about the agenda that he is bringing forward is an honor. >> do you have an idea what yaur day is going to be like? >> i hope so. >> tell me. >> it's a constant sense of excite. no day is going to be alike. the enthusiastic that donald trump going to bring is amazing. to make the country
great again, you have seen this through the transition phase, to lower the cost of the boeing. >> you see unusual extreme of people even kanye was there. >> he has entertainers, academics, people success in the pi military, no matter the field, to bring them together to say no matter the idea, he wants you part of this movement. >> he has a spat with the intelligence community how does he repair sna. >> just to be clear. just to be difference the respect that he has for the men and women go today go in to make sure the country is protected to gather and use intelligence to our nation's benefit, there's a difference. he has tremendous
amount of respect for men and women who toil to help our country without get the accolades they deserves. >> what's he going to do? >> if you thought about the immigration, repealing obamacare, transportation, there's a lot of issues that have been forefront to him that's he going to focus on. he talked about trade and getting out tpp and renegotiating nafta. >> that's over the course of the 100 days. >> -- like what. >> you're going to see lobby ban put many place people serve in the trump administration by instituting a five-year ban for foreign government. that's a positive step forward and send a true signal that this administration is about putting
the america first. >> will we have executive order with regard to immigration? >> what the president-elect doing with his team is trying to figure out how to sequence the team. on keeping america safe in terms of i tacking isis, making sure we have protection we need and creating new job. he sitting down with the team to figure out what the sequence is to get that done. we don't want people to lose sight of the accomplishments that he has for the first couple of days. >> we heard him say he wanted to abolish the energy department.
>> governor perri is from a state that is huge oil producer. he understand the needs of our nation's energy what we can do to tap into natural resource to provide more energy to our people. when it comes to understanding the industry, he can unique -- >> he said he doesn't want it. >> he talked about the need and the focus of the doesn't. i think that's why him coming in and having a sharp focus on how to reform the department to unitize fort betment of the company. we have too many concerns about whether or not we're harnessing wind, solar to our countries's best interest. there's so many thing to do in that sector to put people back to work to give them a living
wage, we have to -- >> will president-elect to make commitment to sustainable to solar energy? >> he talked about it. where are natural resources within our own -- we have a lot of mineral and gas within our own oil. how do we utilize that to get off the independence off oil. >> where are you going to be tomorrow. >> i have a decent seat. we're going to continue to be very, very busy. it's been an exciting ride. ready for this day to come. >> as you hate us now, you're going to hate us as the days
come. >> we love you guys. >> i have seen the tweets. >> we love you. we are excited to communicate this message of success to the american people and excited to have you along time to have the people on and articulate what we're toing. >> you have to say this for your boss rein priebus. go packs go. >> go packs go. >> sean, nice to see you. >> congrateds on the show. >> thank you. president-elect addressing the -- >> i promise you that i will work so hard we're going to get it turned awe round. we're going to bring our jobs back. we're not going to let other countries take our job any longer. >> republican governor from the
great state of texas and the author of unbroken. welcome to washington. >> the president-elect says he going to build the wall along your board, is he. >> i think he is. he is working fast toward it. it needs to be done. we have more than about a thousand people a day coming across the boarder. we need greater security. >> there's so much concentration on that southern border, there are so many people come to united states and over stay their visa. what do we combat that. >> both issues needs to be addressed. people coming across the border needs to be address. we have a thousand coming across every single day. so many into the state of texas we need -- the state came out of the pocket
to do our own border security. that's not our job. that's the federal government's responsibility. >> sally hernandez is expected to announce she would no longer -- 1.8 million in grants. your going to up the anteto her? >> i am. two law enforcement don't comply they would be losing flad losing in addition to that i have made policy proposal to ban with penalty for officers in cities who don't comply with the ban. >> who going to pay for the wall? >> it could be through fees on remittance, it could be other fees attached to through trade. it would be paid through mexican trade but not the taxpayer to

when i examine so many of the position that the president-elect soon to be president is taking i'm on the other side. and particularly on things like aca or obamacare where he wants to take health care from folks. i understand republicans are having this debate, do retake it away, if the president's right and he has a plan that replaces it, i don't understand why we're repealing the system that seems to be working so well. where the uninsured rate is down 18.12% it su used to be -- >> obviously, people love the fact that if your preexisting illness you're nothing going to be excluded. >> the average increase is 9%. i
have been in government. >> most incomes are not going 9%. i have been on the government a long time. during those years that i was serving, we saw rates go up 17-24%. obamacare is bending the curve. in year two and three we are seeing less and less going out the door than in year one. we are getting people who are getting services and getting treat and catching disease much earlier before and that saves money. >> that's key. >> don't get health care in the medicinal room where it's not as good and far more expensive. >> what are they going to do to oppose the president. >> it's a issue by issue case.
this idea we're going to -- if you have a plan to replace, let's put the plan on the table. >> if he has a good plan, you're not oe opposed to that. >> there's non-on the table that you see. >> correct. they have had six years and they have never done it. >> whatever plan they have is unclear to me. i do know so many americans are terrified of this whole aspect. >> connecticut is the home to a large insurance carriers and health in particular. if you repeal and you don't replace with a comparable system and 32 million will have no health insurance. >> if you repeal while we rewait
for replacement -- companies will not right it without a plan back up. if that's not existence, you will not have the policy next year. >> i don't want the gap to scare the american people. >> governor, nice to see you. >> up next i talk to reverend franklin graham who giving a reading at tomorrow's inauguration.
