him. and then the democrats also, they were attacking him so i feel like a the lo of people were afraid to stand behind him. >> reporter: then there were those like alice butler short, hidden supporter, well, not quite. check out her trump truck. >> i feel ecstatic. i mean, i feel such a huge sense of relief really that's mostly what i feel. >> this is not the outcome we wanted. >> reporter: watching hillary clinton concede to their candidate, alice and her fellow women for trump supporter, carolina, have met the many hidden trump supporters. >> people were afraid to put bumper stickers on their cars and as carolina and i drove around, we would find people picking them up inside the karr car and showing them to us. >> reporter: these women hoping the division will heal. >> i want unity. >> reporter: you think a president trump can bring that? >> i think so, yes. >> we have a lot of work to do.

exclusively branded trump. d.c. voted overwhelmingly for donald trump's opponent, hillary clinton, but the mayor says the nation's capital will put out the welcome mat for his inauguration. >> we have been through this many times. our home, of course, every four years. our homeland security division with the metropolitan police department work with our federal partners in preparation for t d.c., planning for the inauguration started long ago. >> so already on our website, washington.org, we have more than 50 hotel packages that specialize in coming for the inauguration from our hotel partners. >> reporter: the platform is already taking shape at the u.s. capitol for the 58th presidential inauguration. it will look a lot like president obama's inauguration and parade but some of the
tailored to president-elect trump by the joint task force. >> we will work directly with the presidential inauguration committee which will be set up by president-elect trump, his direct representatives. they'll define to us their requirements for balls, galas and for ceremonies other than the actual swearing in that will happen on the 20th on january. >> reporter: transition offices are officially open today at the gsa which is located just blocks from the white house. that's where the trump transiti meetings with federal agencies and pick perspective cabinet members. >> the new team need to be able to walk in the door on day one and be ready to go in case there's a 9/11 on january 21st. >> reporter: between now and the inauguration, potential cabinet members will be picked, staff will be hired and donald j. trump who has been a business executive all of his life will become this country's chief executive. jim?
maryland's governor larry hogan was one of few republican leaders who refused to endorse donald trump. now hogan is pledging to work with the president-elect. today, the governor released a statement, he congratulated trump and said in part "now is the time for all of us to come together to find real solutions to the problems we face as a country." governor hogan said back in june that he would not vote for trump, but he refused to say for whom he would vote. last night an a governor hogan wrote in his father's name on the ballot. we saw a little bit of rain across the area today. much-needed rainfall. some rain early then some sunshine. temperatures into the 60s then the rain came back. temperatures now, though, in the 50s and we're still seeing light shower activity but really it's starting to get on out of here. a couple of showers down toward prince william county, down toward fredericksburg. a few down toward southern maryland. all in all the showers are really beginning to end now as
out to sea. and as it does so, we're going to see cooler air move in. that cooler air just off to the north and west. and rather breezy conditions, too. temperatures into the 40s already. and this cooler air will move in during the night tonight. so going to be a cool start to our day tomorrow. kind of a chilly afternoon. we'll talk about what moves in this weekend. oh, that's the coldest air we've seen in some time. i've got that for you coming up. see you in about ten minutes. >> looking forward to it, doug. thank you. coming up, the world reacting to news of the white house. plus, stocks rebound after panic overnight in the presidential race. we'll break down what's driving
it's become a d.c. tradition after a presidential election, or any other really big news even, people walking by the newseum stopped to read the newspaper world. donald trump's surprise victory in the presidential race prompted a whole lot of extra traffic here today and more than a few photos. as the nation begins to process the news of donald trump's election, people around the world are weighing the possible effects in their countries. keir simmons ro reports now on international reaction. >> reporter: america's political earthquake shaking the world this morning. few understanding what a
internationally. the uncertainty sending a jolt through global markets. americas overseas stunned. >> no one thought it could happen and it happened. >> one man in one election year in one branch of government is not going to, you know, end the world. >> donald trump. >> reporter: international leaders waking up to a new world. the u.s.-backed battle to take mosul from isis in iraq under way. but the strategy questioned by donald trump on the campaign trail. now he will be commander in chief. across the middle east, they watched the results live. the region's strong men like egypt's president rushing to congratulate america's president-elect. in israel, surprise and mixed reaction. >> shock. but i was very happy. >> reporter: but in mexico, where he promised to build a wall on the border, the peso plummeted this morning. here in russia, relations with america increasingly tense.
putin sending a personal message to trump this morning. and calling for dialogue. the putin accused of supporting hackers targeting the election will be tough to deal with. while in china, questions over the future of world trade. >> we're seeing a disaster coming. >> i think pretty good because he know how to do business. >> reporter: iran, north korea, syria, the list of global challenges is long. right international relations. the financial markets also had a strong reaction at first, but investors seemed to shake off their jitters to end the trading day with some strong gains. overnight, when it became apparent that donald trump was about to win, trading in futures showed the market plunging as much as 800 points. cnbc reporter joins us now and
reaction after trump's -- after a trump victory? >> reporter: well not always. just to accentuate the point, the dow jones industrial is in sitting distance of its all-time intraday high. a very different story last night. the dow futures were indicating an open of 800 points to the downside just on these election jitters. asian markets closing down, japan off about markets taking a bit of solace in president trump, president-elect trump's positive acceptance speech. the unifying tone of president obama and secretary clinton saying that they're here to work together. paul ryan also striking a very positive tone suggesting that the republicans will stick by him. that really calmed market fears and also the republicans taking the house and senate potentially means less political gridlock.
trump has promised to repeal obamacare. does that create the kind of instability that could lead to market volatility? what do you think? >> reporter: when you look at financial market performance today, health care was one of the standout sectors. a clip clinton win was expected to add to pharmaceuticals. we saw a positive reaction in the health care sector. investors still what president trump's health care policies would be and does that include potentially repealing obamacare? >> how about trump's promise that he's going to cut taxes, invest in infrastructure projects, put people to work. is that a reason for the market to be bullish, you think, on a trump presidency? >> reporter: yeah, i mean, that's part of the economic policy that really resonates with wall street. cutting that corporate tax rate down could really incentivize
it also could potentially boost m&a. trade, though, that's still considered something that wouldn't be great for the multinational companies here in the u.s. that rely so much on business overseas. that could potentially hurt some of the big companies like walmart which, by the way, it imports about $50 billion of goods from china every year. so trade, that's a big part of the economic policy that we're looking to hear more on in the coming months. >> we appreciate it. >> thank you. up next, a series of firsts as washington's new first family gets ready to move into the white house. latino families and what a
gray skies and rainy weather and also some sunshine out there today. >> just a tad. >> a mix of kind of like everybody's feeling after the election, doug. >> yeah. exactly right. you know, we started with some rain earlier this morning then moved into a little bit of sunshine. temperatures shot up into the mid to upper 60s some locations then the rain moved back in and temperatures have been falling ever since. now, right now, most of the rain out of here. still dealing with a little bit of shower activity on storm team 4 radar.

man: hey baby, how are you? woman: i have a surprise for you. man: you have a surprise for me? narrator: at dominion, 1 in 5 new hires is a veteran. but they won't miss out on financial support. because we cover any difference between their military pay and their dominion salary, and continue benefits for them and their families. why do we do it? because our vets sacrifice enough. "dominion. depend on us for more than energy."
i'm pat lawson muse at the news 4 live desk. we are keeping an eye on several large protests under way right now. protests against the presidential election results. this is video from union square there. they are chanting against president-elect donald trump. also mentioning former new york city mayor rudy giuliani's name. and here is the scene in chicago where there's another anti-trump protest taking place right now. emotions obviously still running high after a very contentious election. back to you in the studio, doreen. after a quiet day outside
protesters have now shown up over there. >> mark segraves is there to report to us. mark? >> reporter: yeah, good evening, jim. you're going to have to take my word for it that over my shoulder is the white house. this tour bus just happened to park behind us at this very moment. but we're going to show you some video of the scene just a few minutes ago in front of the white house. more than 100 peaceful protesters showed up, many of them carrying candles. they listened to speeches, chants and they joined their work is just beginning. consoing one another about the outcome of the election and saying that it is not the end but the beginning of trying to affect change in america. as you said earlier today, things were slow outside the white house. we can tell you now those protesters have actually moved and are marching down pennsylvania avenue toward the trump hotel. but earlier, we spoke with several of the people who came
soak up the environment and a new students who said they were disappointed that so many millennials decided not to vote. in town from rochester, new york, with about 30 middle school students, kirk vincent said he and the other chaperons had to stay away from taking sides in the election while helping the students to take in the historic moment. >> the process does work and it is -- it's a breathing operation because half the people are surprised. i was surprised by the outcome. >> reporter: as for whether this election has made his students want to vote -- the students were split. >> you guys feel more like voting? >> reporter: these trump voters from clemson university, while happy with the election outcome, were disappointed more young people didn't bother to vote. >> you think of all the places in the world that can't vote, you know, look at cuba, 90 miles south of miami, look at russia.
policies and truly don't know what to do. i think part of the reason is because of the taboo of what politics is and when you're growing up you don't want to step on people's toes. people aren't informed. i have friends who aren't informed voters so they didn't feel like they had the right to vote. >> reporter: craig thompson, a group of peace activists keeping a 24 hour vigil in front of the white house for years. he says after the election results, he's optimistic. >> we've got to hope for the best. >> reporter: at the white house, mark news 4. in a little over two months, president-elect donald trump will call that white house, 1600 pennsylvania avenue, his new home. and mr. trump's family will be moving in, of course, as well. >> there are four things to know about the new first family. donald trump's wife, melania, is 46 years old. she grew up in communist slovenia and said she was inspired by ronald reagan. mrs. trump is the second first lady born outside of the united
was the wife of john quincy adams. louisa. >> 10-year-old barron trump will also live in the white house. he is donald trump's only child with melania. barron is fluent in slovenian thanks to his mom. the last young boy to live in the white house was jfk jr. more than 50 years ago. >> donald trump has suggested that he may give his daughter, ivanka, a cabinet position and ivanka's husband could fi children, donald jr. and eric, we're told they're going to be responsible for continuing the family business. donald trump says he will put the business in a blind trust while he is president. washington national cathedral held post-election reconciliation services today. the church invited people to pray for healing after one of the most divisive presidential campaigns in recent memory.
one woman told us that being there for her put things into perspective. >> we've always faced obstacles and troubles and division throughout our history. >> our calling is to seek the good of the cities and the communities in which we dwell. that that is god's call to us. >> the national cathedral is also planning their traditional prayer service before the newly sworn in president. that will happen in january. d.c. did not fare all that well in the election yesterday of a republican president and a republican congress. >> the new leadership in january likely to turn a deaf ear to the city's latest effort to gain statehood. tom sherwood is here with some analysis. tom, the city passed the statehood measure by 80% yesterday. is it going anywhere? >> well, you know, that was the big plan, pass this thing, get
senate, send it up there, get a vote in the senate, maybe not pass the house but get international attention to the voting rights thing. well, hold everything. the senate stayed in the republican hands. trump won. trump has said he would look at statehood. he's never really considered it. and so the big plan is dead. there's no hope anyone has talked to me or anybody i know in the city that this will actually go forward. so they've got to think of plan "b." >> there is no plan "b" right now. one of the things that irritate us in the district as much as anything else is congress injecting itself into our issues whatever they may be. anything like that on the horizon, gun control, for example? you see anything happening in that regard? >> as much as people in the city don't like it, it is constitutional for the congress to have full oversight, legislative oversight of city and it sticks its hands into all kinds of things. guns is one thing. you know, this city back in the
the toughest handgun control laws, supreme court ruled it unconstitutional. ever since there's been a fight over in the courts of what can you do, open carry, concealed carry, how many guns, all that. so it's possible congress could simply step in. this conservative congress and say to the city, just follow the federal rules and stop putting in so many things. now, the city says in response to that, look, this is where the president lives, where the re don't put guns all over town. it could also be the city budget. the city passed another bill saying it would spend its own local tax dollars without any control by the congress. well, members of -- a lot of house members didn't like it. they let it go forward but i think you could see a lot of -- i won't call it meddling because i'm a reporter, but the city will see it as meddling. they've got to be careful. they're looking now for some lobbyists who can maybe negotiate with the members of the house and senate. >> if you weren't a reporter,
>> okay. thank you, tom. >> i know how to talk. >> i know you do. that's what i depend on. big issue in virginia now, voters in fairfax county rejected a proposed 4 cent meals tax on the ballot last night. that money would have gone to fairfax county public schools to help pay for teacher pay raises and to reduce class size, but some school board members say the school system should spend the money are we spending the public's money, the taxpayers' money in such a way that it meets their priorities? and levying another tax under just increasing salaies just moves the ball forward and kicks the can down the road. >> also thinks the board will now have to redo the entire budget from scratch based on last night's decision. a family tragedy. how strangers from all over the
murder victim. how would you like to see more toll lanes all throughout our area? i'm adam tuss. a huge meeting on transportation coming up tomorrow. i'll tell you about some of the specifics coming up. and the rain just about out of here, but what's moving in behind it? i've got details on that, what could be some of the coldest air pretty! hey. umm... sign here? sure, you got a pen? i do! thanks, sweetie.

that's why tomorrow's meeting becomes so important. is the solution to road congestion in maryland a pay-to-play network? montgomery county council member with a message for governor larry hogan. >> i don't understand it particularly with this governor, i don't understand his opposition to toll roads which is what funded a lot in virginia and 270 could be a perfect candidate for that. >> reporter: he's talking about those express lanes where you can pay to get around traffic. maryland transportation leaders are looking at draft right now that would widen the beltway and possibly add toll lanes from the legion bridge to the wilson bridge. commuters like wes welcoming any help. >> it takes me about 45 minutes at least to get to work, that's on a good day. >> reporter: nakita green who lives at national harbor says she needs more transit. >> at this point i pretty much uber to d.c. or have to drive to d.c. in order to catch a metro. >> reporter: the prince george's

what it's all about. >> the trump presidency, because he did it his way, on his own, he's beholding to no one. he's not beholding to the republican congress. >> reporter: prince george's is the largest most affluent predominant african-american county in the u.s. its second largest minority group is hispanics. they also supported clinton with an overwhelming majority. many see trump's presidency as a threat. >> he promised a lot of things, like he emphasized a lot about the beautiful wall and all of the kind to -- hope, no, but we believe that he's going to do that. >> reporter: marie and her husband moved here from mexico to start a family and have a better life. they are undocumented. >> translator: something must have happened to him with mexicans because he hates us so much. >> reporter: marie is hoping the american dream she envisioned for her family still exists for them. >> translator: so if love helped
