4:14 pm
a rainy afternoon. storm team 4 is tracking steady but much needed rain and doug's got the timing for you. and the race for the white house comes to a close but the unexpected outcome and the controversial candidate who won still generating a ton of reaction this afternoon. scott macfarlane at our live det >> reporter: just a short time ago the council on american islamic relations issued a statement on donald trump, saying they respect the democratic process and the outcome of the election, but said muslims should receive respect from the new president. >> regardless of who won yesterday's election, american muslims are here to stay.
4:15 pm
marginalized. god willing, the american muslim community will continue to mobilize to challenge bigotry, to uphold justice and to protect the freedoms and rights of all americans. >> the organization also said it will expand outreach efforts to other americans and there was a call to understand the hardships of all groups of americans including those who supported president-elect trump. at the macfarlane. this year's campaign for president has rewritten the history book in so many ways mostly for its nastiness. >> and outcome was no exception. joining us live now, nbc news presidential historian, michael, have we ever seen anything like this before? >> one word, no. probably nothing at all like this. although there's a long threat in american history where people
4:16 pm
oftentimes run against an elite and said there's this elite, for instance, manipulaing economy and ruining your lives. that's sort of what andrew jackson said. there have been other presidential candidates who have done it but none of them in way that donald trump has. >> has there ever been a time other than obviously during our civil war where the country has felt so opposed to itself, you know, in so many ways? >> well, you know, we've had times where we've been very never more so than during the civil war, but 1940 when the presidential election was over, do we get involved in a war against adolf hitler or 1932 when there was a great depression and people were arguing do you use the federal government to help people or not? but i think none of those campaigns as rancorous as they were was as ugly and as personal as this one was. >> did you, as you watched the
4:17 pm
did, as a historian, did you see signs that donald trump was headed toward an upset victory like this when you watch the size, for example, the crowds that would gather at his rallies from city after city? >> i think, you know, the rallies did say something, but one thing i think really did tell me, and that was when there were those two comey letters at the end of the campaign called the october and/or november surprise, we've seen thate notice of a dui arrest, 1976, almost cost him the election. 2004, there was a letter from a tape by osama bin laden that wound up helping george w. bush because people saw him as tough on terrorism, so when there are things like that, then these polls become a lot more unreliable, so i began to think maybe something is up.
4:18 pm
there was so much division and so muchrancor add you said, has there been a time in history where we came back together and rallied around something or are we sort of destined now to be separated as a country for years to come? >> i hope we're not. i don't think we are. true history, the one thing that makes the difference, if you have a president coming in saying i want to heal the country, i want to unite the country, i know this is a big problem, that really does a lot to move things in the right direction and, you know, president-elect trump made some very nice sounds in that direction last night. >> all right. historian michael beschloss. >> we will see. >> thank you so much. yes, we will. >> thank you. >> we'll see michael later on a one-hour edition of "nbc nightly news" starting at 7:00, again, one hour right after news 4 at 6:00. the lincoln cottage open
4:19 pm
until 7:30 this evening. the cottage says "we recognize that people are expressing a need to come together peacefully when we are a house divided." as a national monument where lincoln came to deal with epic division and chaos in our country, we are committed to providing a secular place of reflection and serving as your beacon of hope." of course, the election of a new president means a new family moving into the white house essentially becoming our new neighbors.
4:20 pm
five children and he was on stage with his father last night. barron is 10. apparently speaks fluent slovenia thanks to his mom and when he was a baby, melania once said in an interview that barron was a very calm little boy and did not cry much. and the last young boy to live in the white house was john f. kennedy jr. it was more than 50 years ago. >> of course, we remember it. >> yes. >> those pictures of him crawling under his father's desk. most of us get to experience however, for one woman, one local place was the first place she's ever felt safe. how it's helping so many local people survive domestic violence. it's a busy afternoon for storm team 4. doug has been tracking rain. if you get alerts, i just got it on my phone, the rain may be approaching where you are right now. he's going to tell you when it's going to start to dry out. first, i'm scott macfarlane at the live desk.

4:35 pm
trump this year over 2012. how are your listeners feel about that, how do they think that happened? >> they're disappointed. especially, you know, when you're seeing that the vast electorate has made this decision that a lot of people were not happy with, and then you see that participation in your own community was down. they blame that on apathy and they also say that it can also deal with nokes who really don't understand the issues, the education level in t understanding the gravity of this particular election. maybe they weren't quite in tune with what needed to happen. they athis is a situation where people are going to have to express their needs in the community, say to mr. trump and those elected hold them accountable for the decisions that they said they were going to do during this campaign and see what happens. >> a lot of folks said clinton didn't inspire them. >> that is true as well.
