here's what he said. >> reporter: tonight, president obama opening up about what happened before this moment. >> thank you, everybody. >> reporter: pulling back the curtain on his 90-minute one-on-one meeting with president-elect donald trump. given some of the harsh words you had about mr. trump, calling him temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief, did anything surprise you about president-elect trump when you met with him in your office? >> well, we had a very cord nia conversation. that didn't surprise me to some degree, because i think that he is obviously a gregarious person. i also think that he is coming to this office with fewer set hard and fast policy prescriptions than a lot of
i don't think he is ideological. i think ultimately, he's pragmatic in that way. and that can serve him well. >> reporter: but mr. president, you had talked specifically about his temperament. do you still have any concern about his temperament? >> i think what will happen with the president-elect is, there are going to be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him recognizes them and corrects them. because when you're a candidate and you say something that is inaccurate or controversial, it has less impact than it does when you're president of the united states. and i think he recognizes that this is different. >> and martha raddatz joins us live from the white house tonight. and martha, the president, as i mentioned, leaving on his last
foreign leaders who had expressed concern about mr. trump before he was e legged. >> reporter: ah, he was asked about that, david, and he said that during that meeting, mr. trump expressed interest in maintaining our core strategic relationship, that he is committed to nato. i'll tell you, the allies will be very happy to hear that. david? >> martha raddatz at the white house tonight. martha, our thanks to you, as well. also late today, hillary clinton and her phone call with members of congress hill. after another phone call with supporters and donors this weekend. acknowledging the pain and placing a good deal of the blame, she says, on the fbi director. he brought the e-mails back into sharp focus, just 11 days before the election, then two days before the election, revealing they found nothing. here's abc's cecilia vega. >> reporter: late today, hillary clinton calling her democratic allies in congress, telling them not to be discouraged or divided in the wake of donald trump's win. it is the opposite of a victory
clinton also reached out to top donors this weekend, telling them she is heartbroken. and blaming her loss in large part on that renewed fbi investigation into her e-mails just 11 days before the election. saying director james comey stopped their momentum. clinton said his letter just two days before the election clearing her actually fueled votes for trump and is what really hurt them in the end. a loss made even more painful by the growing popular vote 700,000 votes and counting. but unlike those coveted working class voters that helped propel her into the u.s. senate, this time, clinton failed to win them over. today, president obama hinting at what hillary clinton might have fallen short. >> i won iowa not because the demographics dictated that i would win iowa. it was because i spent 87 days
fair and fish fry and vfw hall. and there were some counties where i might have lost but maybe i lost by 20 points instead of 50 points. >> reporter: in the end, she lost three key rust belt states. her path to the white house derailed there by a combined 107,000 votes. her old rival bernie sanders today. >> i like hillary clinton. but i think it is fair to say that the working class of this was prepared to stand up and fight for them. >> reporter: and in concession, clinton herself acknowledging the nation's deep divisions. >> we have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. but i still believe in america, and i always will. >> reporter: and emotional kate mckinnon playing clint to be one last time --
