[ cheers and applause ] for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people -- [
laughter ] i'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together. >> trump also acknowledged the particular voters who likely gave him his victory. >> the forgotten men and women of our country. will be forgotten no longer. >> this morning hillary clinton appeared before heartbroken supporters. she called on everyone to accept the result of the election. but she, too, addressed a specific group of people. >> and to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams. >> in the rose garden today president barack obama said, we all want what's best for the country. >> we are now all rooting for a success. and uniting and leading the
country. the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. >> trump will be obama's guest tomorrow at the white house. it may been awkward get together, but it may also serve as a demonstration that the transfer of power will indeed be a peaceful process. we have three reports tonight. christie ileto has reaction from members of different minority groups. dann cuellar has the story of the pollsters and the media. how everyone got it wrong. but first, jeanette reyes is brood at oxford in north philadelphia. hundreds of anti-trump protestors took to the streets tonight. what was the story? >> reporter: well, jim, they're kind of all over the place. but they walked by us about an hour ago. there were a bit rowdy with the media. but overall it has been a peaceful protest. they've kind of had a mix of emotions. bothing angry and disappointed.
