at one point, they were down more than 800 points. they made about half of that up overnight. take a look at the big board at this hour. it's dipped into both green and red but back and forth all morning. the rebound may be because trump plans to invest in infrastructure. there's also more stability with one party controlling the white house and both chambers of congress. overnight, huge crowds gathered here outside what will soon become donald trump's home. at people out at the white house, most of them appeared to be protesting. many carrying hillary clinton signs. this morning, there was also a prayer service here. people offering up hope for the future of our country. we should mention it was scheduled before election day. news4's kristin wright is live at the national cathedral with more. kristin? >> reporter: just look around. the national cathedral is such a peaceful place but everything

11:14 am

>> translator: we understand that the way to that would be difficult taking into account the current state of degradation of relations between the u.s. and russia. >> the ties between the two countries have gone downhill due to conflicts in ukraine and syria. they have also been impacted by the cyberattack allegations during the campaign. >> i look forward to working with president-elect trump. the american people have united states. britain and the united states share values of freedom of democracy and enterprise and i look forward to building on the special relationship we have between our two countries to ensure the security and prosperity of our two nations in the future. >> and reaction is pouring in from around the world. you just heard from the british prime minister theresa may. she strongly condemned trump's push to ban all muslims from the
11:16 am
even as results began to come in, we asked a political science professor about how trump won. >> this entire election result can be explained in one word. what we understand is that voters respond more aggressively to fear and anger than hope and opportunity. donald trump understood that's the way he ran his campaign. so when you look at brought out fear and anxiety and look at all states that he won pennsylvania, ohio, wisconsin, potentially michigan, missouri, for example, even north carolina and florida, those are all states that have had significant upheavals over the course of the last few years. he played on that and then you add to that secretary clinton significantly underperforming
11:17 am
women and there you have it. >> republican leadership is congratulating trump on his victory. paul ryan says he's eager to work with the new administration to vanz the agenda. mcconnell issued a statement saying, in part, after eight years of the obamacare administration, the american people have chosen a new re president-elect trump has a significant opportunity to bring our nation together. >> and republicans will control the balance of power in congress. they have retained the power. most people expected the house to remain in the republican control. the senate, on the other hand, was open to a power shift but that didn't happen. republicans have 51 seats while
11:18 am
independents. >> democratic jim justice is the next governor of virginia despite donald trump receiving 69% of the votes in that state. justice is an executive who distanced himself from hillary clinton during the campaign. our coverage of the election continues throughout the hour. in just a few minutes, a look at the states which voted in favor of legalizing ju after the break, tom will let us know if we can expect more rain. and now we go to an nbc special news report. good morning, everyone. house speaker paul ryan is speaking about the stunning results of last night's election. >> i want to congratulate the team and our entire house leadership team.
11:19 am
our house majority is bigger than expected. we won more seats than anyone expected and much of that is thanks to donald trump. he provided the kind of coattails that got a lot of people over the finish line so we could maintain our strong house and senate majority. now we have important work to do. many months ago, republicans in the house united around a bold, specific agenda for this country and it offers a better way forward forer will help donald trump to do this. we will honor the timeless principles that our country was built on. liberty, free enterprise, consent of the government and we'll apply those principles to the problems of the day. this is the kind of unified republican government that we set out to deliver. i want to close with this. there's no doubt our democracy could be very messy. and we do remain a sharply
11:20 am
but now as we do every four years, we have to work to heal the divisions of a long campaign. i think president-elect donald trump set the perfect tone last night for doing just this. and i know president obama and secretary clinton are committed to bringing the country together. this needs to be a time of redemption. we all need to rededicate ourselves to making america great and making it a more perfect union. with that, let me take questions. kelly o.? >> you were critical of donald trump, said you could no longer defend him. today clearly you are embracing him. some of your colleagues were critical of you, saying that you had not embraced donald trump enough during the campaign. is your relationship with the president-elect and your conservatives in the house in tact? >> yes, it is. our relationship is fine. i've spoken with donald twice in the last 18 hours. we spoke last night, spoke again
11:21 am
well. i think we're going to hit the ground running. we're talking about getting our transitions working together. we're very excited. look, when i say seven out of ten americans don't like the way the country is going, they just voted. what donald trump just pulled off is an enormous feat in that he heard those voices that were out there that other people weren't hearing and he just earned a mandate and we just now have a unified republican government. whether it was crisscrossin citizens and to all republicans to come home and unify and we did just that and that's why i'm excited about where we are. >> speaker? >> yes. >> [ inaudible ]. >> we had great conversations about how we worked together on the transition to make this work together. we're trying to get our schedules lined up to meet and flesh out how we make our transition. i'm very excited about our
11:22 am
>> [ inaudible ]. president-elect's comments about women. >> yes. >> what are your concerns? >> i'll say to wisconsinites what i said before the election. look at the issues. look at direction we've been going and the direction we need to go and look at what a unified republican government can get you. look, i'm really proud of the fact that for the first time since electoral votes went republican. this is an enormous feat. charles, you saw it. we didn't think it could happen. donald trump turned it on its head. donald trump delivered the ten electoral votes. charles? >> you used the word mandate. you're going to repeal and replace obamacare. how quickly, how soon, what does it look like? and what about the folks that
11:23 am
>> after a tough campaign, where people believe they were pitching so hard for one side or the other, the time is to heal and unify. this health care law is not a popular law. so to your specific question about repealing and replacing obamacare, this congress, this house majority, this senate majority has already demonstrated and we're able to pass this legislation and put it on the president's desk. the problem is, president obama asking us to do this. so with unified republican government, we can fix this and fix these problems. it's not just the health care law we can replace because we've shown the willingness and ability to do it. there's so many more things that i'm excited about. think about the laid off co-workers, think about the farmers here in wisconsin being harassed by the epa and waters of the usa, about the ranchers in the west getting harassed by the interior department or laid
11:24 am
this means that we can lift the oppressive weight of the regulatory state. we can restore the constitution. think about the conservative constitution respecting judges that will be nominated. >> we've been listening to paul ryan, speaker of the house in janesville, wisconsin, praising donald trump and pledging to work together with him to pass a republican agenda but now we have other news happening here in new york. >> let's bring is moments away from addressing her defeat for the first time. we did not see her last night after donald trump won that stunning victory and the senior staff has assembled at this hotel room in new york city and we expect her to be moments away. andrea mitchell is in the room. are you getting any insight into what we might hear from secretary clinton? >> i think what you're going to hear is a promise to be
11:25 am
he called her, i believe, savannah, not the other way around, shortly after he talked to donald trump. this room has been filled now with the staff, senior staff, joe crowley, the congressman so close to her. and there were cheers when john podesta and robby mook and sullivan walked in. other people seatedre former diplomat, women friends who have traveled with her this long route who show up on primary night to keep her cheered up when times were difficult along the way. so this is a gathering of hillary land, if you will. a lot of them go back, as the social secretary from the east wing when she was first lady. this is a team of friends and
11:26 am
hillary clinton becoming president of the united states. bill clinton will be here as well, savannah and matt. so you're going to hear, i think, a sad but grateful hillary clinton today thanking supporters. >> andrea, stand by. we have chuck todd in the studio. how hard of a speech is this going to be? >> extraordinarily hard. this one is different. i have heard that this was hard to take. she really believed she was going to be the next president of the united states. and it was a -- i think -- i don't think she -- my guess is she's probably not ready to give this speech but for the country she has to give the speech. >> contrast where they were 24 hours ago. the mood inside the clinton campaign was jubilant, celebratory. >> they even created this -- the
11:27 am
the west side, the glass ceiling, they had katy perry ready to sing, lady gaga, cher. it was like this -- it was -- by the way, it's like -- as they were -- as the elite were celebrating, look what happened with the people. i mean, it is sort of -- when you look at it in hindsight, what a contrast. >> there are some long faces. those are top, top staff >> robby mook, terry mcauliffe's campaign in virginia, robby is right next to jake sullivan. robby's been on the '08 campaign and planning her run for the presidency for eight years. >> as has she. >> yes. >> we might add. so it's a moment -- and i think one the ironies, there was --
11:28 am
debate when donald trump said he wasn't sure if he would concede the election and there was a lot of talk about what a grateful concession looks like and the peaceful transfer of power. here it is, hillary clinton is now having to deliver that very thing. >> consider this, this may be the last major speech that we hear clinton give as sort of a head or as one of the heads of the democratic party. >> that's funny you said that. we all talked about if what kind of coverage would we give to him in the months and years ahead and so the question is what kind of profile does hillary clinton have? >> i think the democratic party has a history of this. when you lose, good-bye. that happened with dukakis and john kerry sort of recovered but happened to walter mondale and i think it's going to happen to
11:29 am
direction. >> the clinton foundation took some serious hits during this campaign that has been the clinton family work for the last 15, 16 years. bill clinton both times on th ballot, democratic party lost senate seats. >> do you have any insight why it is john podesta came out and said we have more to say tomorrow and within the hour she calls and concedes to donald trump? >> like i said, it's my
11:30 am
at. >> this speech was supposed to happen and it's been steadily delayed 15, 20 minutes at a time. >> people forget politicians are human beings, too. >> that's right. and this might be it. you know, this is period, the end of her political career here. the weight of the moment has hit her. >> she talked to candidates who run for office. obviously they will look at it to see as people pour their lives into a campaign and pour their hopes into. >> there she is. >> jennifer palmieri has worked
11:31 am
>> and even though the mood there is incredibly somber, all you have to do is look at the images that we're seeing. i imagine she's going to get a rousing ovation when she walks into that room. >> the personal loyalty for her was tighter than personal loyalty for bill. the hillary world is slightly different than the bill world and they look up to her in ways differently than the clinton crowd looks up to ill about. it's >> looking over it, this looks like a wake. >> and when they do the forensic check and look at the campaign that was, i mean, before the results came, everyone was saying, wow, what a well-executed campaign this was. the results certainly throw that into a different light. >> there's an unfortunately, uncomfortable three months has
11:32 am
and it was john podesta e-mails but it gave you a picture and i brought it up a bunch of times, they couldn't find the message and we saw how they were searching for a message, we saw how they were searching for how is she going to deal with he is still have virginia and it's a big state to build a potential base from. i think he has his own presidential ambition. i wouldn't be surprised if tim kaine shows up in an hour. remember, we're going to see that soon. that happens.
11:33 am
will probably be in january. >> it's not that we don't believe you. we're just not ready for it. >> 1400 days away to 2020. >> matt asked this question earlier, it's worth discussing if we look at what may be the final really political appearances from the clintons is who was head of the democratic party right now? president obama but who is the future of the democratic party? >> well, look, like i said, chuck capitol hill, that stands up to trump or tries to holds up the agenda or fights for basically playing to the base a little bit and hoping, preparing democrats for the midterm. let's take a look at who is coming in. [ applause ] >> huma abedin, of course, who is her top aide and never far from her side. obviously secretary clinton can't be -- we expect president
11:34 am
although we don't expect him to be -- and as you mentioned, tim kaine is going to introduce hillary clinton. tim e
11:35 am
i'm proud of hillary clinton because she has been and is a great history maker in everything she has done as a civil rights lawyer and first lady of arkansas and senator and secretary of state. she has made history in a nation that is good at so many things but that has made it uniquely difficult for a woman to be elected to federal office. she became the first maj popular vote of americans. [ applause ] that is an amazing accomplishment.
11:36 am
i'm proud of hillary clinton because she's held fast to dreams. she was inspired at a young age to an epiphany that if children and families do well, that's the best barometer for if society does well and everything she's done, she's focused on that. we know she would have made history as a president but we've never had a president who has made their whole career about the empowermentof children and i was excited about that in the oval office as i was excited to have my friend hillary there and make history and i'm excited and proud for hillary because she's built a wonderful team. [ applause ] there is a beautiful and comical
11:37 am
about a vineyard owner who hires people at noon and pays the same thing for the half day and then i'm going to pay you the same and those who started earlier in the day say hold on, we don't like this, that you're treating everybody who came late just as well as you're treating us. i'm going to tell you something. here's what i've come to know so well about hillary. the team that she's assembled over the years of people that are so deeply loyal to her because she's so deeply loyal to them that same degree of loyalty and compassion and sensitivity extended to the most recent folks who have joined the team, the folks who came to the vineyard with just one hour to go, her loyalty and compassion of hillary and bill to people if you're with you, you're with you and that is just something so remarkable. and finally, i'm proud of hillary because she loves this
11:38 am
nobody had to wonder about hillary clinton whether she would accept an outcome of an election in our beautiful democracy. nobody had to ask that question. nobody had to doubt it. she knows our country for what it is. she knows the system that we have and in its blemishes, she's deeply in love with it and accepts it. she's been in it didn't go her way, she accepted it and that love of country is something that i think is obvious to everybody, obvious to everyone. i want to thank hillary clinton for asking anne and i to join this wild ride. about a week before she asked if i would be her running mate, anne and i went up to westchester and sat down with hillary and bill and chelsea and
11:39 am
conversation to try to determine whether we would be the right people to be on the ticket and when we got in the car to head back to the airport after the three-hour discussion i said to anne, honey, don't know if we're going to be on this ticket or not but i do know this, we're going to remember those three hours for the rest of our life and now we'll remember the 105 days we've had with these fantastic servants for the rest of our life. i'll just say this. hillary and i know well the faulkner. he said they killed us but they ain't whooped us yet. [ applause ] because -- because we know -- because we know that the work remains.
11:40 am
empowering families and children remain and in that work, that important work that we have to do as a nation is so comforting to know that hillary is somebody that until her very last breath is going to be battling for the values that make this nation great and the values that we care so deeply about. so now, please join me in welcoming secretary hillary rodham clinton. [cheers and applause ] [ applause ]
11:41 am
thank you all. thank you. thank you all very much. [ applause ] thank you. thank you. thank you so much. [ applause ] very rowdy group. thank you, my friends. thank you. thank you. thank you so very much for being here. and i love you all, too. last night, i congratulated donald trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. i hope that he will be a successful president for all
11:42 am
and i'm sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country. but i feel -- i feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together, this vast, diverse, creative, unruly, energized campaign. you represent america and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life. . [ applause ] i know how disappointed you feel because i feel it, too. and so do tens of millions of americans who invested their
11:43 am
this is painful and it will be for a long time. but i want you to remember this. our campaign was never about one person or even one election. it was about the country we love and about building an america that's hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted. we have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we but i still believe in america and i always will. and if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. our constitutional democracy enshrined the peaceful transfer of power and we don't just respect that, we cherish is.
11:44 am
the rule of law, the principle that we are all equal in rights and dignity, freedom of warship and expression. we respect and cherish these values, too, and we must defend them. [ applause ] constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years but all the time. so let's do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear, making our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top, protecting our country and protecting our planet and breaking down all the barriers
11:45 am
achieving their dreams. we've spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the american dream is big enough for everyone, for people of all races and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for lgbt people and people with disabilities, for everyone. [ applause ] so now, our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build that better, stronger, fairer america that we seek and i know you will. i am so grateful to stand with
11:46 am
anne holton for being our partners on this journey. [ applause ] it has been a joy getting to know them better and it gives me great hope and comfort to know that tim will remain on the front lines of our democracy representing virginia in the senate. [ applause ] to barack and michelle obama, our country owes you an enormous debt of gratitude.
11:47 am
we thank you for your graceful, determined leadership that has meant so much to so many americans and people across the world and to bill and chelsea, mark, charlotte, aiden, our brothers and our entire family, my love for you means more than i can ever country on our behalf and lifted me up when i needed it most, even 4-month-old aiden who has traveled with his mom, i will always be grateful to the creative, talented, dedicated men and women at our headquarters in brooklyn and across our country.
11:48 am
you've poured your hearts into this campaign. for some of you who are veterans, it was a campaign after you had done other campaigns, some of you it was your first campaign. i want each of you to know that you were the best campaign anybody could have ever expected or wanted. [ applause ] and to the millions of volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to neighbors, posted on facebook, even in secret, private facebook sites, i want everybody coming out from behind that and make
11:49 am
to everyone who sent in contributions as small as $5 and kept us going, thank you, thank you from all of us. and to the young people in particular, i hope you will hear this, i have, as tim said, spent my entire adult life fighting for what i believe in. i setbacks. sometimes really painful ones. many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. you will have successes and setbacks, too. this loss hurts but, please, never stop believing that fighting for what is right is
11:50 am
it is. it is worth it. and so, we need -- we need you to keepp and to all the women and especially the young women who put their faith in this campaign and in me, i want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.
11:51 am
now, i know -- i know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day, someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. [ applause ] 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
11:52 am
our country and for all it has given to me. i count my blessings every single day that i am an american. and i still believe, as deeply as i ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strength in our convictions and love for this days are still ahead of us. [ applause ] because, you know, i believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. and you should never, ever regret fighting for that.
11:53 am
good for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. so my friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary, let us not lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do. i am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this consequential election. bless the united states of america. >> hillary clinton speaking to supporters and friends and family members here in new york city, composed, gracious, eloquent, hopeful, saying that she hopes donald trump is the president for all americans and saying we owe him an open mind and a chance to lead. >> you've got to wonder if she had a lump in her throat a few
11:54 am
it can't have been easy to give the speech that she thought she would but having talked so much about the chance for power, a grateful concession, she showed what that looks like. >> twice she has had to give gut-wrenching concession speeches. this one probably ten times rougher than the one she did in '08. she hit every note. you can't sit here and -- she hit every single note that anybody wouldav supporter or a clinton supporter, whether you're president obama, president-elect trump. >> a lot of tears in that room but not from secretary clinton. >> a couple of moments. >> the only thing you could consider to be a slight dig came from tim kaine in introducing her when he said about hillary clinton, no one ever had to wonder whether she would accept the outcome of the election, a

the closing weeks much this campaign. >> yeah. it was -- you know, i guess it was a little dig. it might have not done it in a moment like this. might have saved that for maybe an interview with the "new york times." >> he also got a lot of applause when he said she won the popular vote. >> nancy pelosi put out her statement. she's still head of the house democrat and she brought up this and said because he won the electoral college and she won the popular vote, you know, he's got to w said, i really like this infrastructure plan. she actually, to me, threw her cards down there and said i'll try to work with him. >> it occurred to me in watching this that the clintons have seen political phenomena from both directions. bill clinton was one himself all those years ago, hillary clinton lost one in barack obama and she loses again to one in donald trump. >> you missed one. >> which one?

some would argue bill clinton was the beneficiary of that original phenomenon. the double irony is that bill clinton, he did connect to the donald trump voter. the donald trump voter of 2016 was a bill clinton voter in 1996. >> we talked about that with james carville. >> he admitted last night, he starte i i want to tell, essentially. >> i thought there was an interesting part in what she just said where she talked about being disappointed in not being able to break that glass ceiling at this level and then spent the next minute or so speaking to young girls in this country, encouraging them not to be disheartened by that failure and attempting to do anything that

other people in tears because they are disappointed that this didn't happen for hillary clinton this time. and i don't think that had to do with politics. >> by the way, eight years ago, my then daughter said, oh, girls can't be president after she saw that hillary clinton lost to barack obama and i immediately got this book called grace for president. it's a terrific book about a girl running for president a i think the 10, 11, 12-year-old girls didn't see republican or democrat. they saw another girl. they saw a girl and my daughter had that placemat. it's all men. the president's placemat. there was a real conductivity and you'd hear from the campaign, especially with adolescent girls. >> she certainly has given a path for her supporters to continue the work that's

telling lines from her speeches, we owe to donald trump an open mind and a chance to lead and i think in terms of your political opponent, that's about the best you can hope. it's the american way. >> it's the american way. >> it's the right thing to do. >> the people spoke. we said this last night. the people have spoken. respect the people. >> and she had to do this because, remember, during that last debate when donald trump would not commit to and so she clearly stuck by her word in this. you know, there are tears now that she's greeting people on a one-on-one basis, it seems a little more difficult. where does she go now, chuck? what happens? >> i assume that she throws herself in the foundational event. that's something that became a controversial thing, she's never really pursued that.
11:59 am
i doubt she has any more books in her. >> don't forget, she likes to talk about being a grandmother and when she was toying with the idea of whether to run, she did talk about, you know, it might be nice?i to just be a grandma these little kids and that can be enormous comfort. >> campaigns up-end the lives and i'm looking at huma abedin in the foreground and you just have to stop and think about what has happened in her life over the last year or hillary clinton. and that north star is not there. >> no. i mean, that is a -- >> tough position. look, that is -- having your marriage that public, nobody, nobody wants that. >> we've now heard from secretary hillary clinton, we've heard from the speaker of the house. lots of statements coming in. there's another voice that we expect. president obama will address the
