>> republicans containof both h senate and the house of representatives. what can we expect from capital law americas for donald trump. lis dau booth. good morning. >> hi, steve. >> be careful what you ask for. he is going to make america great again but he needs congress to work with him. >> i hope this is a time for the republican party to come together. donald trump is going to be the president of the united states. republicans will have majorities in the house. the senate it is time to come together to get the big ticket items done. something donald trump has talked about that he will get a lot of support from the house and senate is role back obamacare. look at energy policies moving america toward energy independence trying to put forth pro growth solutions looking at
2:17 am
reducing taxes on hard-working americans as well as corporations. there are a lot of things they can come together on that will better people's lives. >> i had a conversation with somebody already who have obamacare and they are horrified with the premium increases. how long does it take realistically for congress to repeal and replace obamacare? >> i think it could take a little while in the sense of you have to if you go out what's next? what are you going to do? what's the solution here. i think moving forward on some of the energy stuff is a lot easier. even looking at president obama roped off so much federal land from energy development. that's a pretty easy solution for donald trump right there. >> it will be interesting the dynamic between donald trump and his republican congress. let's face it. it has been a crazy campaign which now is over, and a lot of republicans said things that now donald trump as president, you know, kind of hard to face up
2:18 am
to. >> i think this is when both those individuals and donald trump it is time to kind of swallow your pride and work together. donald trump has been talking about making america great again rebuilding the economy helping these forgotten people. what he said in his speech is what he has always done from a business sense is recognize the untapped potential in projects and people as well. i think he's coming in with that mentality and really working with the republicans. i think they could get a lot done it will really help the country. >> when you look at the map county-by-county of who voted for donald trump, for most parts of the country it is a wash in red. it is very clear there were a lot of people out there dissatisfied with the direction the country was going in. now that's it right there. there are pockets of blue but for the most part the united states are -- there's a lot of red across the maps. what's trag ninteresting now iss to work with congress. he's a business guy.
2:19 am
he has no political experience other than he just ran this campaign. he has mike pence right there and one of mike pence's best friends is speaker paul ryan. you would think that would be a team to get stuff done. >> i think they can work together. that's part of having vice president or vice president elect mike pence is that he understands congress. that's why he passed them in the beginning was that he could help donald trump navigate the political process navigate capitol hill understand the inner workings. he has to lean on him to help him do that. collaboratively between donald trump and having that business sense that executive sense identifying the right people and putting projects in those individual's hands alopping with mike pence who understands the inner workings of capitol hill could be a great xen nation to try to figure out what's next and what's next in the first 100 days. >> for people waking up at 5:20
2:20 am
eastern time donald trump is president elect. you know a lot of these dc insiders what's their reaction on this wednesday morning? >> my friends have been pretty split. i voted for donald trump. a lot of my friends have been split about their preference with donald trump and either voting or not voting. as i mentioned it is time for republicans to come together. he is president elect. he needs to work with republicans and everyone needs to work together. >> time to put differences aside. >> thank you, steve. >> 5:20 eastern time here on fox & friends. latinos and women all making a difference in nominating donald trump. we are looking at the surprising exit polls and what it means for both parties going forward. donald trump the 45th president elect of the united states.

>> many people said there was no way for donald trump to win the election. he won the election. he won votes across the country. who made the difference in deciding who wins or loses? chief and president with maz lan ski and partners. stunning news. you can't put this into perspective when you wanted to. >> first off let's talk about
2:25 am
gender. >> it is not that trump got the vote what is surprising the female vote. people expected it to break for hillary clinton more than it did. still a win for her but not bay the margins anybody expected. everybody said i have read the polls i have said the same thing. i have been corrected on twitter. i am sorry to you women that i said women won't vote for trump. >> it was a female who made the call to say who are you going to vote for? t most females would say i am not going to vote for trump. males would be more on les. something about not admitting it. independents not a surprise republicans win independents by 6. >> 48 percent of independents. this is something we have been seeing through out the cycle. we have talked about it over and over again when we looked at the dials. independents went for trump. mate have seen they were going to go higher than they did but
2:26 am
they turned out and in big numbers. that's one of the reasons trump did so well. >> tony perkins and jerry falwell junior have a lot to do with the stat we are going to show you. donald trump 81 percent. they showed up in huge numbers to 16 percent. >> this is absolutely record numbers voting for trump. everybody said there's no way evangelicals will vote for trump. we want conservative values and we want the supreme court back. >> abortion in the last debate anything had a a lot to do or everything to do with it. now let's talk about hispanics. this was the story. early voting. then we heard early voting hispanics strong and first time voters hispanics 23 percent of the hispanic vote was first time
2:27 am
that was the death blow to the trump candidacy ended up 65 to 29. >> people said the hispanic vote was going to go for hillary clinton. trump might not even get 5 percent. he got 29 percent. it carried him. i bet this is the reason he won florida. >> is that more or where romney was? >> he might be a little bit more. >> first time voters hillary clinton got the bulk of first time voters by a number of 56 to 40. that is some what surprising. a 16 point advantage. >> it is, except that includes millennials and the younger voters and first time voters who are 18, 19 years old. i think she expected much greater numbers there. people expected to see the first time voters millennials younger voters breaking for hillary and they did not. >> you late deciders decided in just the last few days. came out with a second comey letter that was supposed to exonerate and fuel the push she ended up with a 2 point deficit
2:28 am
in favor of trump. >> every point there counts. it is a small deficit. we can say it is within the margin of error. two points in this race is a big deal. he needed to make it up however he could. we talked about how narrow the path was. he won on all of these accounts. the other thing is she lost on many of these measures. >> she lost by a lot. we heard about how unpopular these two candidates are. unfavorable 54 percent viewed hillary unfavorably. 60 percent view donald trump unfavorably. this doesn't make any sense to me. >> this doesn't make any sense to me, too. i tried to make sense of it with a couple folks out here. we were saying why would this be? i think one of the things we came down to it is unfavorable in different kinds of things. what is unfavorable with hillary clinton it's 30 years of establishment, 30 years of maybe people might view it as
2:29 am
failures. people saying i don't believe she is on my side. i am not sure i trust her. there's a lot of things in there. for him it might be i don't like him because he might be bombastic. he might say things too much. it is a different level. i am going to dig more into these numbers for sure over the next couple of days. >> president obama said, look, it is for me. verify my eight years. he got the big crowd. he has 54 percent approval rating, donald trump is the biggest check in this disapproval column. they clearly doesnn't ike each other. on thursday they will have a chance to meet in this symbolic change of power. fascinating time to do your job. >> it sure is. great to be here this morning. >> we have a president elect. almost didn't think it would be this name, donald trump. he is promising america for all americans. >> all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation i say it is time for us
2:30 am
to come together as one united people. >> it might be the best speech ever. the panel lax at the historical election. hands off ainsley. has to be professional.

vowing to unite all americans under his administration as you just heard. where do both sides go from here? we have our panel. thank you all for being with us. >> good morning. >> i will start with you. you and i saw each other in the hallway. he did his speech this mor want. for all of the people who were against me i want to learn from you and i want your advice. what was your thoughts when he said that this morning. >> that kelly ann conway did another good job. >> someone did. >> donald trump didn't write the speech. we know when he is ad-libbing. his personality was infused there. he said exactly what he needs to say. the truth of the matter is whoever would have won last night or this morning will have a challenge in unifying this country. she sadie employerable and irredeemable. he has alienated large swaths
2:35 am
especially minorities. all of the credit to donald trump and the world for his campaign and what they managed to accomplish. >> you were talking in the green room now he has to deliver. america has put his trust in him. they put their trust in the republican house. they put a clearer system of government where republicans can deliver. the republicans ran on the platform. the american people have delivered a system under which they can deliver over the next few years. trump should get under leadership immediately i think that's what the message from this election was. >> your polling, when these numbers started coming in the exit poll numbers it clearly looked like hillary clinton was going to win. what went wrong with the polling here? >> it is hard to get the
2:36 am
electorate correct. we had a high number of voters voting for third party candidates or undecided. when you have that occur you have a lot of uncertainty going into the election. up to 10 percent among independents and millennial voters. that was through a lot of the pollsters. hillary clinton under performed in almost every category. donald trump didn't win. he didn't drive white turnout or do dramatically better than white voters. instead he did worse than latinos african americans, millennials. whereas a country do we go from here? everyone wants to unite. tired of the election so many low. >> that was the overwhelming result 95 percent felt anxious and they wanted it over with.
2:37 am
you had lisa booth on earlier in the show, we fiend common ground policies that we can work together on. >> there are things we can agree on certainly on infrastructure. one of the biggest spending republicans they have seen. smart tax reform. democrats have to give up some of the tax hikes and simplify the code and hold on to some of the entitlement programs. donald trump has wanted to cut entitlements. there are conversations he can have. it will be interesting to see if he softens on things like the travel will ban from 34 countries or the wall on southern border which are nonstarters with democrats. there was something i was thinking about i wonder if the colors of mac shouldn't be blue and red. i cider outsider. people wanted change verses something different verses someone who wanted an establishment candidate.
2:38 am
>> they wanted a strong leader. >> the outsider's royce is a stronger voice here. what does that say about the average joe, not the elitists not the establishment. >> it was about the standard american worker. the guy gets up everly morning and comes home and tries to raise a family and leaves a better life behind. donald trump did 20 times better than mitt romney did. that's a blue collar town in ohio. >> it is so red on the map. >> not only did he do better in the blue collar industrial towns. look at rural america. the urban divide in this country is real. rural america rose up and delivered the white house to donald trump and delivered republican control in congress. we have a realignment in one election.
2:39 am
they have a mandate to deliver on it. he spent more than $100 million of money on this campaign. how did he relate to the working class man and women? the people that went to the fancy schools, the people that went to dc. i respect you. even though they brag about it they are not following the same set of rules. at least he acknowledged people in elite circles should be. they want respect. they want to have greater say over the laws that are regulating their lives. they want to have more say about how their tax dollars are spent if their tax dollars are going to benefit themselves. that's important. i think the problem is there has been a col rance of bigotry. donald trump has turned off big
2:40 am
blocks of voters particularly hispanic and asian voters. 70 percent of hispanics believe dlt is hostile to them. >> we license he was shot several to see if he can unify the country. >> jam kemp the father of the enterprise. he offered tax incentives. he has a start small businesses there. this is what donald trump needs to think about and his advisors. he doesn't know what he is doing himself it will be critical. >> take it over to steve and brian, hey, guys. thank you ladies and gentlemen. cheers and tears no the only reactions to last night's election results but financial markets taking significant plunges overnight. why? nicole is on deck to tell us. why the news might not wind up being as bad as it seems. >> they don't like uncertainty he made the promise over and

2:46 am
i just feel relieved. >> you feel relieved. >> i will say this after talking to the family and the people closest to him in the last year and a half when he traveled through the country i think he was most moved when i went to detroit and saw the inner cities and got a chance to talk to people he doesn't normally interact with because his business is rising high-rises in the world not building urban america and i think he mentioned that in his speech last night. i think that's significant. he didn't mention the iran knee deal or obamacare. he mentioned the inner city. he got 29 percent mitt romney got 239 percent. they said that was impossible. early votes donald trump got 8 percent which is still purpterr but mitt romney got 6 percent. they thought they had alienated the black vote. not compared to mitt romney.
2:47 am
he did slightly better. >> i will just say this, the democratic kool-aid is something else, honey. i was drinking it for 20-years. i know what it is like. the parting over the nation. i think donald trump is going to be a pleasant sur praise to the inner city, blacks and latinos. he has a passion and he has empathy for the poor. he may not have had that before he got on the campaign trail. once he started shaking hands and seeing the brokenness and the hurt and the hopelessness, that would get into anybody. i don't care who you are. i remember running for lieutenant governor and it got into me. i am so happy that he emphasizes and he has some passion and i pray that carries over into investment in the community.

2:49 am
>> he said investment infrastructure. those are the words of president obama has been trying to get infrastructure passed. republicans wouldn't do it. i don't know republicans anything. if he goes in and combines the democrats who want to do this and find a way to do this in a way partially government and private bank investment in the inner cities which would provide jobs and hope. >> i would think what would happen i am a democrat i would become an independent. that's important to have a team around you that also share in your passion. i think what's going to happen is once everything dies down that the democrats, republicans and donald trump and the team and his new administration is going to do what is best for the

that's what hillary clinton thought when she was secretary of state. >> donald trump's victory sending shockwaves throughout the markets as the dow nosedived look at that. overnight. why did that happen? what comes next? here to break it all down is nicole. >> we anticipated a selloff if it were trump. if it were hillary, they were expecting much of the same and markets move higher. in fact, we saw that earlier in the week after she was cleared. not going to do a -- no criminal intent. the markets gained over two days. today, what we saw overnight was big selling. the dow was down over 800 points. that's a huge move. in fact, we were looking at circuit breakers. they might have to pause trading. >> why don't they like trump? >> i think it's a lot of uncertainty. >> gridlock. >> they know what they're getting with hillary. it's much of the same. with trump, it's uncertainty.
2:56 am
all the traders have been at the desk overnight obviously making the moves. they say, like the new york term will be shaky. you can expect selling. it's not going to implode. there won't be a fed rate hike. >> you're on the floor every day. is this also an opportunity if you believe that donald trump will bring opportunity, you might take this opportunity to buy? >> right. that's not wrong. i spoke to steven guilfoyle and he noted that. he said this would be a buying opportunity. if you're not afraid of the markets, this could be a buying opportunity, no doubt. >> many who i've spoken with, they've seen shaky markets. going forward, it's not going to implode. we need time to adjustment. >> it's looking better. take it in stride. >> thanks, nicole. kellyanne conway is coming up. stay with us.

3:01 am
government to serve the people and serve the people at will. working together, we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the american dream. no dream is too big, no challenge is too great. nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. america will no longer settle for anything less than the best. >> president-elect is donald trump as u. wake up this morning. >> did anyone think you would be saying that today. very few people, ainsley. >> i tell you what, he gave his acceptance speech last night in the 3:00 a.m. hour at the trump headquarters, a couple of blocks from where we're sitting. what states did he win? he won a bunch of them and he won some nobody thought he would. the current electoral total,
3:02 am
he's at 274. >> he only needed 270. she's at 218. there's still a couple of states outstanding. meanwhile, will you look at the county by county, popular vote, you can see that trump did very well from coast to coast and what that interprets. this is like a heat map. it's red and people have been angry and that translated at the polls. ladies and gentlemen, one thing we do know for sure regarding the polls is those polls ahead of yesterday were wrong. >> that's right. even the exit polls last night. at 5:15 were wrong saying that hillary would win. trump supporters thought she had it in the bag. then in the middle of the night when pennsylvania was called, it was made public that donald trump would be the next president. >> pennsylvania was called, wait a second. if you win ohio and florida, you win the election. then you win north carolina, okay, still not there. then all of a sudden, you see that all the other states that he won, he put everything that belonged there, he held on to
3:03 am
arizona and texas. they were in jeopardy for a while. what i thought happens is when you have close election, the team with the better ground game wins. blow that theory up. they're micro targeting to help barack obama so much in '08 and 2012, did nothing to stop donald trump's very unorthodox campaign. >> it's a silent majority, it's something we have seen occasionally in american history and they came out in big part yesterday. and in the early voting. meanwhile, last night during the 3:00 hour over at trump headquarters, donald trump actually had a message to hillary clinton who he said had run a good campaign. >> i've just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us. it's about us on our victory. and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.
3:04 am
hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time. we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. i mean that very sincerely. now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. we have to get together. >> that was very nice of him to congratulate her. he talked about unifying america. you can see the number of people there that support him in these counties. mike pence spoke before he came out on stage. i think that was an excellent move choosing mike pence because he got 81% of the evangelicals. evangelicals love mike pence, they're not a fan of hillary's because they're worried about the supreme court and abortion. she's in favor of the late-term abortion. >> all that is true. there's also the character of mike pence. it was invaluable during uneasy times. he was the steady ship. if pence thinks this guy is
3:05 am
okay, maybe he is okay. let's take a quick look at the senate real quick. this is the strength of donald trump's personality, you're missing the point. the house kept the republicans calm. they keep their majority. but this is the story. >> absolutely. the house and the senate are both republican and they have the white house as well. when was the last time that happened? now, donald trump who has no background in politics is going to have to deal with congress. thankfully, he's got mike pence at his side and there you can see the balance of the power. these are the senators who are returning. marco rubio pat toomey, ron johnson. mr. burr in north carolina. >> we talked to ron johnson yesterday. these so-called experts, not going -- yet, not only did he win, he won handily. i think he had five points when i went to bed. >> he said he didn't need the money. he's retired.
3:06 am
he wanted another six years because he cares tore this country. >> the pundits who said donald trump can't possibly win were wrong. the polls were wrong. ladies and gentlemen, we have just had a breakfast election. just like they had over there. >> something to go down in the history books. we will never forget this. while team trump is celebrating, hillary clinton has not yet said a word. she's expected to speak this morning after not showing up for her massive rally in manhattan this morning. >> what was going on behind the scenes? we have fox news coverage on this historic morning. senior political correspondent mike emanuel did a fabulous job. steve, what's next? >> our national correspondent. >> senior national correspondent. >> john roberts who has been camped out in front of trump tower for months. he's got a condo on the street. curbside condo and now he's got good news for the trump fans
3:07 am
from trump tower. >> reporter: we twoent rei last night and bought a couple of tents because we'll be spending a lot of time by the trump tower on the sidewalk. interesting, you cannot go down the sidewalk. the police have it closed off. dumb trucks are lining the streets in front of trump tower. i don't know how long that will last. the atrium is open to the public. but we don't know if that's going to happen today. remember how donald trump was criticized for not having a ground game where he said i do rallies, that's my ground game. guess what? that counts for something. he brought out the underground trump voters. a lot of people to thank in the early hours of this morning when he gave his victory speech. obviously, he thanked his family, melania, ivanka, don jr., jared. he gave thanks to his late parents, his late brother fred, as well as his sisters and his brother robert. then also gave a big hat tip to the politicians who stuck their
3:08 am
head out for him when no one else would. >> this political stuff is nasty and it's tough. so i want to thank my family very much. really, fantastic. i want to give a special thanks to our former mayor, rudy giuliani. unbelievable. we have over 200 generals and admirals that have endorsed our campaign. they're special people and it's really an honor. reince is really a star. he's the hardest working guy. >> a lot of speculation as to whether rudy giuliani might have a place in a trump administration. i asked him about that a couple of months ago. he said he was too busy with his business. who knows? things change. he might want to do something. trump won on the strength of tapping in to a sense of collective anxiety the people across the country are have about the direction the country
3:09 am
is moving in. trump effectively tapped into that and got all of those people on his side. basically people wanted to reject the status quo. here's trump again. >> as i've said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but, rather, an incredible and great movement made up of millions of hard working men and women who love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and for their family. >> reporter: now donald trump has to put together an administration. as you mentioned, he's got control of congress. he may be able to get some things done as president. for people who wonder how he would govern, there's an interesting story about how he fix fixed in new york city a place that was an attractive problem and turned it around. maybe that's how he'll govern potentially. it's an interesting example of
3:10 am
how he gets things done. >> are you suggesting governing on thin ice? i don't get the analogy. kidding, john. >> reporter: let's see what happens. thank you, john. >> people in new york know that story. he came in and did it under budget and it's still there today. that was the beginning of the trump story. hillary clinton opting out of her election day party. supporters that were there, some are crying and in shock as she decides to concede to donald trump. she didn't go to the podium. remember? she sent john podesta out there. >> he was saying hang in there, it's too close to call. then she calls donald trump behind the scenes. mike emanuel is live near clinton headquarters in brooklyn, new york. mike, this leads one to believe there lack of communication between the guy who runs the campaign and the nominee, don't you think? >> reporter: well, brian, it seems like the numbers essentially told hillary clinton she didn't have a path any
3:11 am
longer. hillary clinton, we know, worked on two different speeches for election night based on the outcome. later this morning, we expect to hear her remarks for a loss. the last time we saw the democratic nominee, she was all smiles after voting at the elementary school there in chappaqua new york. she described the experience of voting for herself as humbling because she knows the responsibility that goes with being president. we never saw clinton last night. her supporters, friend and campaign aides were gathered in forks for an election night event hoping to celebrate history with a clinton win. there were tears and long faces. just after 2:00 a.m., campaign chairman john podesta tried to cheer them up and praised clinton. >> we are so proud of her. she's done an amazing job and she is not done yet. so thank you for being with her. she has always been with you. i have to say that tonight.
3:12 am
good night. we will back. we'll have more to stay. let's get those votes counted and let's bring this home. >> reporter: clinton aides knew the campaign was over but they were hoping to work on a transition and ultimately go with her to the white house. they're likely waking up with her this morning hoping the election was just a nightmare. back to you guys across the river. >> what were the people in the crowd thinking? because blood, sweat and tears, they supported her. for her to not come out and at least say thank you, were they upset with you? >> that's a great question. can't speak for all of them. some of them left because they were disgusted because they didn't get the outcome they wanted and they were waiting and waiting. it was after 2:00 a.m. when john podesta came out. >> he came out at 2:00 and she conceded a short time after shows a lack of coordination in the final lap. that's going to be a story that will be yet to be told, obviously, behind the scenes.
3:13 am
fascinating. mike' oemanuel, thank you. >> some of the democrats are blaming the turnout machine. according to a brand new item in politico out in the last five minutes, bill clinton is blaming the campaign manager, robby mook. a lot of fingers. >> i think she was so upset, it was hard for her to realize. >> so many angles to explore. >> tucker carlson and governor mike huckabee here on how donald trump pulled off the victory and where we go from here. plus, our proud veteran, pete hegseth and jillian turner are both here to react and tell us what we can expect out of trump's foreign policy promises which are very important to you, the voters. that's next. >> she looks happy. what's going on here?
3:14 am
i'm val, the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. we're putting away acorns. you know, to show the importance of saving for the future. so you're sort of like a spokes person? more of a spokes metaphor. get organized at remember when christmas was magical? let's get back there. celebrate the arrival of santa at bass pro shops this saturday and the unveiling of santa's wonderland. time passes. hold on to christmas. of many pieces in my i havlife.hma... so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in
3:15 am
children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at

and i finally found our big idaho potato truck. it's been touring the country telling folks about our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man. hey, wait up. where you goin'? here we go again.
3:17 am
willing to get along with us. we'll have great relationships. we'll seek common ground, not hostility. partnership, not conflict. >> improving america's foreign policy has been one of donald trump's main themes for the last 17 months. now that he's elected
3:18 am
president-elect, gillian turner is here who is in a security capacity under george w. bush and president obama and fox news contributor and army vet pete hegseth. good morning. >> good morning. >> we should start, in the beginning you were not a trump supporter. >> no. i wasn't. i mean, the dynamics of this election were, do you believe in america or not? do you want america to be strong, a leader in the world? you look at our foreign policy. the world has been adrift because barack obama hasn't led, hasn't been a force for good. donald trump represents a guttural -- we do want to lead and name our enemy and we want to defeat them. not everything has been clear, he's been clear about that. >> gillian, obviously, pete doesn't care for the way barack obama has led. you would probably have an alternate point of view. but going forward, forget about looking in the rearview mirror, what can donald trump do going forward? >> one thing he's done really
3:19 am
well from day one i've said it before many times is connecting with voters on the importance that terrorism, the terrorist threat faces -- >> people are scared. >> that's the number one national security concern. a lot of folks on the left don't agree with that. he came out hard hitting on that topic from the beginning and connected with people and he's maintained that connection all the way through. >> we understand, within the last half hour, apparently vladimir putin has sent a telegram congratulating donald trump and saying i hope we can restore what has become a crisis in u.s./russian relations. >> what has become? >> it is. >> everything is going to recharge. i think that's a good thing. we've been addressed in our -- president donald trump has the opportunity to reset the course. find new allies and new opportunities. cut bait on things that haven't worked and be honest about allies that we need. nato, it's a great conversation with them. we love nato and want to support them. if you're not going to carry
3:20 am
your weight or if you're turkey and going in an islamist direction, why are we defending you. especially when you're facing isis and a problem there, donald trump has to do it. >> gillian? >> before he resets and cleans the slate, cleans house, he's got to -- >> drains the swamp. >> whatever he's going to do. he's got to face uphill battles. he's going to have to hit the ground running in the oval office on foreign policy issues from day one. he'll have to decide what to do in afghanistan and iraq. what to do in countries embroiled in what are set to be protracted civil wars, like libya and yemen. these are things he'll have to tackle immediately and have a plan. >> hit the ground running well by rebuilding our military which is what he said he will do. rebuild it. make sure it's capable when you unleash it, let it fight the wars we need to fight in. that's a big first step. >> be careful what you wish for. you wanted him to win.
3:21 am
he won. >> pete, gillian, thank you very much. the mainstream media could not have been more wrong about the election. the pundits and the polls, how did that happen? tucker carlson joins us with more on that. tucker get up, you're next on "fox and friends." hey, searching for a great used car? i don't want one that's had a big wreck just say, show me cars with no accidents reported find the cars you want, avoid the ones you don't plus you get a free carfax® report with every listing i like it start your used car search at

3:24 am
all right. donald trump's immigration policy struck a core with millions of americans. something he mentioned the first day. now he's president-elect. new exit polls say they trust donald trump to handle immigration much to the cha grin of many democrats. we have here a democrat from texas. congratulations. >> thank you. >> no election is easy. some are stunning. the president-elect is donald trump. what does that mean?
3:25 am
you know his chachbnt. build the wall. are you concerned he's going to start building the wall? >> there's ways to address border security by using monitors, cameras, drones, other things that i think are more effective. one mile of fencing will cost about $6.5 million a mile. you put in one million dollars per mile for electronics, you can do a good job on that. we just got to be smart on how we secure the border. i live on the border so i understand what it's all about. >> you are not a cookie cutter, if you want to build a wall, you don't like hispanics, you don't believe that? >> keep in mind, one of the fastest growing sectors we have in our country are the hispanics. you saw a large number of hispanics voting. keep in mind, that a lot of the hispanics that came up were in nonbattleground states like texas, california and other states like that. >> it's amazing, too, that he actually -- donald trump, in his own unique way, ended up with more -- higher percentage of the hispanic vote than mitt romney.
3:26 am
what do you think that tells us? >> you know, you got to understand that when you have a message and especially it doesn't have to be the white working class, it can be anybody. if you're able to resonate with the voters, whether hispanic or anybody, people want to look at economics and people want to have jobs. you did well on that point. >> congressman, just your gut feeling for you. do you think that this president-elect is someone you can work with being that many republicans didn't help him? so he's not really -- he's not in their debt. so do you sense that you might have a chance, we might have a chance for the first time to reach across the aisle in a long time? >> you know, it depends on him. i think a lot of us are willing to make sure that we don't put party before the best interests of the country. i've always been one of those bipartisan type of individuals. if he's willing to work with us and develop some consensus, he will find people that can work with him. a lot depends on what the new
3:27 am
president-elect wants to do. >> what is the message here? if you look at the senate, the house didn't change an the president goes to the other party. what message do you take from this when you walk into the street when you go home? >> it's a very divided country. people are frustrated with washington, d.c. i hope that we can in a bipartisan way make sure to address the real problems that people want to talk about. what we talk about in washington are not the same problems that we face in south texas and other parts of the country. we got to make sure we address the problems that voters wants to address and economics concerning one of them. >> give me your top three? >> certainly economics, infrastructure and if we look at security, let's do it in a sensible way and address security. >> let's be honest. when he comes down, a nonpolitician. he comes out and says we got to build a wall, have security, six months later, he's saying look, i'm not going to send
3:28 am
deportation squads, first secure the border, then we'll deal with people illegally. in this political climate, that would have been a flashing siren. so do you sense that he's moved a little bit from his initial statement when he entered the race to saying what he did that there's some give there? >> i think so. without talking about pathway to citizenship, we can do legalization. i think he might be willing to look at that. at least let's look at who is there, who is in the united states and then from there, let's find some other ways. keep in mind, the last time we had immigration reform was a republican, was ronald reagan. >> this isn't all about illegals here. if you're norwegian, if you're from spain, it takes forever to get here and takes forever to become a citizen here. it's too laborious. there's so many more facets to it. >> yeah, you're right. everybody focuses on illegal immigration. my father became a legal resident and then a u.s. citizen. it took him a long, long time. the legal process is one way that we have not paid
3:29 am
maybe that's something we can look at to attract good people to help the country grow. >> you won. congratulations, congressman henry cuellar of texas. you tend to blur party lines in texas anyway. >> thank you so much. coming up straight ahead, 31 minutes before the top of the hour, donald trump said the mainstream media was getting it wrong. it turns out he was right and they were wrong. tucker carlson is here. he has a lot to say. first he has to have his coffee. it's decaf.

when i go into a poll after people hear what i'm saying, i do really well if people think i'm running. one thing is nobody thinks i'm
3:33 am
running. >> yeah. >> you think i'm running, right? >> actually, i thought you were running last time. my gut tells me the announcement is in may and june that you're in. >> okay. let's see what happens. >> mitt romney, he blew it. he choked, something happened to him. that's an election that should have been won. >> you think you could have won it. >> frankly, i'm disappointed. i would have done it and i would have won it. >> celebrity stroll, walking the streets. >> that was 18 months ago. 17 months ago, that's when he came down the escalator. >> you wrote an article. you called it. i was talking to a friend who is way smarter than me, i bet brian kilmeade. who understands america better, you or brian kilmeade st. t. turns out you did. >> this guy said this thing has been over for a month. really? how do you know that? >> every one of these states is within the margin of area. the pollsters are admitting they're not positive. >> you turned out to be right. really the only one.
3:34 am
there are people in my neighborhood in northwest d.c. that have no idea donald trump has been elected president. >> how did it happen? >> it happened because we didn't understand the country we preside over. not just the political class in d.c. didn't understand the country and by the way, didn't care to. that's the thing. people had their pre conceptions about the forces driving this election, about trump's flaws and hillary's strengths. it was at 5:30 when the exit polls came out and it showed that he was out-performing mitt romney and john mccain among african-american and hispanic voters. you're like, wait a second, the one thing we know, trump is a terrible racist and going to start something against the hispanics. he's doing better than mitt romney did against hispanics. maybe we're missing this. >> the first round much exit polls proved to be wrong. this is much like what happened over in -- >> that part was right.
3:35 am
>> that aspect of it was ultimately the -- it looked like she was going to win early on. >> for sure. >>th all the networks were feeling by 11:00 last night. they were probably going to call it. it's like our brexit moment. the polls were wrong. there were a couple of polls that got it right. investors business daily, rasmussen was right. >> l.a. times. >> the big polls were wrong. "washington post," nbc "wall street journal," all wrong. >> but the contempt that the people analyzing this election had for anybody with an alternative point of view, it was like you were denying evolution or something. because their pre-conceptions were so strong they couldn't break out of them. like brexit was not about nigel farage, this is not entirely about donald trump. this is a reaction against the people in charge. look, if you're not in the elite media, not on wall street, not in the political class, look at the people who run the country. they sneer at you. they have contempt for you. there's nothing about you that they like. you resent that after a while.
3:36 am
this is democracy. the average person can vote we learned last night. >> i'm going to add celebrities to that. whether performing with hillary clinton, going tweeting or campaigning for her. many of which foolishly said they're going to leave the country if he, in fact, wins. celebrities, instead of -- you might like their album, but you resent the fact they're in your face telling you what to do. that's what america did. you're a good actor, you can sing well, i like your music, but i'm not taking your political advice. >> yeah. a lot of people were -- lena dunham was for this. i'm actually not for this. >> there's up side to this -- >> no. >> we might finally lose cher. >> i do think this is something that the trump voters should think about. every power center in american life is a raid against trump. there needs to be some kind of reconciliation to some extent because there's nobody with the hand on the lever of power for this. i'll be interested to see the
3:37 am
reaction this morning. especially the democratic -- >> there's no one on the lever of power, what do you mean? >> i mean everybody at the top levels of american business, finance, in the arts, in academia, i can't overstate it, they're horrified by this. >> does it remind you of what happened with ronald reagan. i was too young when he was around. but i had to do some research for a speech i gave. i remember reading about him working for g.e. before he was going to run for president. he would go into the rust states and stand on a box and talk to all these union workers and they thought who is this hollywood elite coming here. he was wearing jeans and a cowboy hat and they all fell in love with him because he was a man of the people. >> i was at the last reagan rally that cycle. it was at del mar racetrack in 1980. it's different in this sense. reagan was a two-term governor of california. he sort of knew what he thought. the elites despised him and sneered at him and thought he was stupid. in the end, he was a known quantity because he was a seasoned politician. donald trump is the only person
3:38 am
to never serve in office before getting elected. it puts him in a separate category. fear of the unknown is part of this. part of it is stupidity and i think 5% of political analysts should quit and sell insurance. most pollsters should be in the -- i think at the core of it, there is a legitimate worry about, well, what does come next? i think trump can fix it. >> if the control room could put up the map that shows the counties in america that went forp trump, from sea to shining sea it is a sea of red. >> that's right. >> trump is red and hillary is blue. that represents -- it's like a heat map. it represents the anger all across the united states with washington. >> jessica far low said crazy red. >> total inversion of 30 years ago. the cities and farms. now, of course, it's the party of really the suburbs and the coast. to some extent the urban course. everything else is republican.
3:39 am
this is a real challenge. last night in the exit polling, i think this is true. 97% of people who voted for hillary clinton describe donald trump as scary. 94% of people who voted for trump say hillary is scary. there really is a divide here. >> all my neighbors called and said i'm selling my house. i'm down. >> northwest d.c. is not the business of government. it's about lobbying of course. it's about elected office. it's about working in the agencies. >> why are they selling their house? where are they going to go? >> the emotional reaction is overwhelming. they know that trump is a threat to them. their monopoly on power. >> a lot of people are moving out. >> the other sad thing that's important, so much time to analyze, this is what you'll hear throughout the day. if it wasn't for wikileaks and if is wasn't for comey, she wins. the other thing that could happen, since donald trump owes so few people so little he will be free to do whatever the heck
3:40 am
he wants. >> that's right. >> who knows? his first call might be the people he likes on the democratic side or people on the republican side that work with him. you might get this thing happening where things get done because he's not dug into party politics. >> i think that's a really wise point. to your first point, i hate to beat up on people who have just lost and i'm not going to beat up on hillary. this is a pop list year. we now that going in. they nominated an elitist candidate. doesn't mean she's evil. the elites in the party rigged the system. they succeeded. the republicans started to rig the republican system and they failed. donald trump became the nominee. >> i think they left it really level and that forced people to think they -- >> raised $125 million before it started as a way of saying, you'd be insane to jump in. >> reince is going to be joining us 50 minutes from right now. by the way, in the last one minute's worst of sound biting,
3:41 am
we received word that hillary clinton currently is leading with the popular vote. as you can see, she's slightly ahead. it's pretty much 47.6 to 47.6 in the electoral college she is at 218, he is at 274. ultimately, if she wins the popular vote, many on the left are going to say she actually won. look at that. >> it's the opposite of what you expected. >> when you expected trump to -- it's possible, she didn't go out and address her supporters. >> is that sad? >> it's sad because clearly she couldn't face it. it's also a ritual. you need to have closure. look at me, i lost. the country needs that. >> i couldn't help but think about her staff. you don't want anyone to lose their job. is it easy for them to get a job in washington? >> teas a good question. the business of washington is
3:42 am
influencing the tax code primarily. but basically influencing the working of government for the benefit of people and we get rich doing it. will that continue to the degree it has? probably not. lobbyists are weeping this morning, i'm not joking. >> as president obama told us eight years ago, elections have consequences. >> big consequences. >> the consequence for you being on this couch is you have wound up as brian mentioned earlier with a brand new show starting monday night. tucker carlson tonight. >> what will we talk about? >> the only person left in the city. >> you've always been at a loss for words, right? >> tucker, thank you very much. >> congratulations very much. >> thank you, as always, ainsley. >> you can tell he was up late. he's prying open a coffee right now. >> it's also pretty clear he likes ainsley better than both of us. >> america does. >> make yourself at home, tucker. >> still ahead, republicans controlling both congress and the white house for at first time in a decade. will washington finally get

3:47 am
the white house and congress. here's a breakdown right now how things are looking this morning in the senate. republicans now have 51 seats. still in control but they lost three seats to democrats overall. democrats have 47. some of the important senate races won by republicans last a referred to this. senator ron johnson of wisconsin defending his seat against russ feingold there. that was considered one of the most vulnerable seats in the senate and democrats in the late days poured in millions of dollars, $2 million or more in the last two weeks alone, which is a lot of money for that state. florida senator, marco rubio defeating patrick murphy. ohio's rob portman fending off ted strickland. pennsylvania senator pat toomey winning a tight race against katie mcginty. richard burr beating deborah ross. two races have not been decided yet. it's too close to call in new hampshire. the republican senator, kelly ayotte leads democrat maggie hassan by less than 2,000 votes.
3:48 am
ayotte pulled her endorsement of donald trump last month after the "access hollywood" tape was leaked. still to be determined what the impact of that will be. then louisiana, open seat. we'll head to runoff election next month. it will be the democrat foster campbell against republican john kennedy. let's talk about the house. democrats made some gains. a net gain of six seats with a few races that are still outstanding at this hour. republicans still hold the majori majority. it's 235 to 191. the leadership has yet to be determined. house speaker paul ryan could face a challenge for his position as speaker. we know he spoke with donald trump overnight in the early morning hours and we're told that they had a good positive conversation. that according to his spokeswoman. in the senate we expect leadership may remain the same. the 115th congress set to convene in early january about two weeks before trump takes oath of office. a lot going on, wow. >> you were back in your home state of wisconsin. >> talking to voters there. >> wisconsin was supposed to be
3:49 am
in her column and it is red. >> the last time wisconsin voted for a republican for president was ronald reagan. over walter mondale in 1984. i was out talking to a lot of these white working class middle income voters. they were frustrated with the status quo. they felt like they had been left behind by this president. black lives matter. they were tired of some of that rhetoric taking place. america apologizing for itself. they wanted something different. >> the polls had a three percentage point gap. a 3 to 5 percentage point gap going into the day. it looked like donald trump said i'd rather have a better chance in michigan than wisconsin. i'm not going to wisconsin. he got both. >> exactly. he got both. 10 electoral votes in wisconsin. he spent a lot of time there. he went five trips there after the primary and hillary clinton did not. that mattered. >> excellent job yesterday by the way. >> indeed. coming up straight ahead,

donald trump gave a special shoutout to our next guest in his victory speech, while promising to fix america's divide. >> former presidential candidate mike huckabee joins us right now live on the couch. governor, you were here on the couch yesterday. we asked you who was going to win. you said donald trump. congratulations. >> well, congratulations to america. i believe we have elected a person who is going to lead for everybody. i know it's been a tough, controversial, and often combative election, but if you
3:54 am
listen to donald trump's speech last night, you heard one of the most magnanimous speeches ever given by a candidate, winning or losing. i thought the healing message he brought last night is indicative of how he will approach this job. >> infrastructure and rebuilding our cities, african-american communities. very interesting that made the text. >> it's about jobs. it's about putting people to work. what donald trump brought and what i saw out there when i would go with him to rallies was hope. people who had lost jobs and pensions and their homes to foreclosure, they knew that the policies that were being put out there by the existing government, democrats and republicans, it was failing them. he brought them hope that he was listening to them, he was going to work for them, not just for the people in the institutions of government and finance. it was a remarkable day for americans, for every-day americans. >> he got 81% of the evangelicals. why do you think that is?
3:55 am
>> i think that's because he appealed to both evangelicals and catholics. not only did he take the boldest stand for pro life of any candidate since ronald reagan, in the debate, hillary clinton defended even something pro-abortion democrats won't defend, that was part of it. the other part, people understand that the next president will shape the country by shaping the supreme court. it's not a four-year deal. it could be a 40-year impact. >> and mike pence too. >> mike pence was a great choice. it gave comfort not only to people of faith but people who say we need people who have governed before. he's been a successful indiana governor, a successful congressman. absolutely pure and genuinely conservative. i think that was a big plus. on the other side, tim kaine, you know, really brought nothing but kind of a helium balloon to the democratic party. it just wasn't really a great pick for her.
3:56 am
>> when you look at the map of all the counties that donald trump won, he would not have gotten that much red across the map if he didn't get the support of a lot of democrats and independents as well. and one of the things -- and this is what i even said yesterday. there was something going on. it was not just your typical political rally. i hear the analysts. i think they've all been wrong. you know, i've been at odds with them because i publicly called them out. you guys are missing the polls. this isn't democrat, republican. >> but they're establishment people. >> they are, and they live in this bubble of manhattan or maybe the bubble of washington and don't understand because they're not out there. i heard our own john roberts say this morning, brilliantly say, that if you'd been to the trump rallies, you could see this was something of a movement, not just a political thing. >> i went to four of them. you went to a lot of them. i've never seen anything like it. people coming from the rafters, wipeding in winding unoutside, just to hear
3:57 am
him. >> it was just donald trump up there speaking. >> governor, thank you. >> great to see you. >> all right. coming up on this program, the superstar reince priebus is going to join us along with herman cain and manager kellyanne conway. it's endless shrimp at red lobster. with another new flavor you never saw coming... grilled, glazed korean bbq shrimp. and try as much as you want of flavors like new parmesan peppercorn shrimp. just come in before it ends.

previously treated withd noplatinum-based chemotherapy, including those with an abnormal alk or e.g.f.r. gene who've tried an fda-approved targeted therapy, this is big. a chance to live longer with opdivo, nivolumab.
3:59 am
opdivo demonstrated longer life and is the most prescribed immunotherapy for these patients. opdivo significantly increased the chance of living longer versus chemotherapy. no biomarker testing is required with opdivo, though physicians may choose to do so. opdivo works with your immune system. opdivo can cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues in your body and affect how they work. this may happen any time during or after treatment has ended, and may become serious and lead to death. see your doctor right away if you experience new or worsening cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; diarrhea; severe stomach pain or tenderness; severe nausea or vomiting; extreme fatigue; constipation; excessive thirst or urine; swollen ankles; loss of appetite; rash; itching; headache; confusion; hallucinations; muscle or joint pain; or flushing as this may keep these problems from becoming more serious. these are not all the possible side effects of opdivo. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including immune system problems, or if you've had an organ transplant, or lung, breathing, or liver problems.
4:00 am
a chance to live longer. ask your doctor about opdivo. bristol-myers squibb thanks the patients, nurses, and physicians involved in opdivo clinical trials. the president-elect of the united states of america, donald trump. >> i will be president for all americans. no dream is too big, no challenge is too great. nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. our work on this movement is now really just beginning. to all republicans and democrats and independents, it is time for us to come together as one united people. >> it's about us. the american people have spoken, and the american people have elected their new champion.
4:01 am
>> it's been what they call a historic event, but to be really historic, we have to do a great job. and i promise you that i will not let you down. this is a fox news election alert. donald trump is the president-elect of the united states of america. as you can see in the top right, the states he won, currently the electoral college. he's got 274. he only needed 270. the outstanding states that have not yet been counted, michigan, minnesota, arizona, and alaska. they will be coming in later today. >> the popular vote slightly in the democrats' favor, hillary clinton. she did concede but not publicly yet. we expect that sometime today. one of the most fascinating occurrences, just in case you think it's just the power of the trump personality, there's something else going on in this country. when you took a year in which with the top candidate, with the reincarnation of abraham
4:02 am
lincoln, it would have been tough to keep the senate republican. this senate has stayed republican in a time in which they had so many vulnerable seats. they are now up to 52. >> so the republicans won the white house and the senate and the congress and donald j. trump just changed his twitter. he's got millions and millions of followers. now it says president-elect of the united states of america. live in our studio here in new york city, there's the cover of "the new york post." >> it says, they said it couldn't happen, president trump. 17 months ago, the elite dismissed us. now he's the president-elect and will be sworn in, in a few months in january. >> that's right. so ian, now zoom in on this on camera three. they were handing these out last night in front of our building.
4:03 am
re-elect trump 2020. the kid from queens, the billionaire outsider will soon be the most powerful person in the world. >> and do you have change of a 20? i just had to get that straight. not many people thought this could happen. not many people thought he could get the nomination. not many people said, wow, the convention wasn't that strong and you didn't raise that much money and the ground game should have come from you, not from the rnc. it's just not going to be enough to get all the way, especially with the hillary clinton machine combined with the obama machine. >> that's what everyone was saying last night. >> one by one, the states fell again and again from ohio to florida. >> look at that. that's the national popular vote. those are the counties that liked donald trump. he wins the majority of those. the country is red this year. >> well, to brian's point, the pundits said there was absolutely no way he could win. but as you take a look at that, from sea to shining sea, it is red. there are people who all across the country did not like the
4:04 am
direction the united states was going in. we knew that from polls. 70% of the country felt we were in the ditch or headed that way. yesterday america did a 180, and now they've picked the outsider to be the ultimate leader of the united states. >> when you went to bed, like most of us, if you went to bed around midnight you're thinking i'm going to get a few hours of sleep because the numbers won't come in for a while. then you watched -- i was watching her party. john podesta came out and said, she's not going to come out. you can all go home. so all you people that have been here and supported her, blood, sweat, and tears, bye-bye. she's not coming out. i think because at this point she knew she wasn't winning, couldn't face the crowd. no telling what was happening behind the scenes. then you watch donald trump come out. we all got word that donald trump was going to speak because pennsylvania was called. everyone expected pennsylvania yesterday to go to hillary clinton. they were neck and neck. we were watching pennsylvania, ohio. what were some of the other states? michigan, florida, north carolina. >> georgia was late to call.
4:05 am
i want to add some drama. do you remember that donald trump started heading over from trump tower to the hilton? someone was saying, don't go now, you haven't won yet. you don't want to be stuck there hanging in the balance. he knew something. he knew he was about to win. sure enough, he had either gotten the call or gotten the call from hillary clinton herself. he also evidently got a call from president obama, which must sident obama to make. he was warning everyone, you don't want the host of "celebrity apprentice" to be the next president. what has it got to be like on that tentative day of thursday when he promised to meet with whoever wins the white house? >> not very presidential in that message that president obama had last week where he said that he was unfit to be president of the united states. >> but nice of him to call. >> absolutely. >> and hillary clinton called him as well. >> so now donald trump is going to be the next president of the united states, right. he's got the republican congress, with the house and the senate. the big question is, about half
4:06 am
the country voted for her when you look at the popular vote. so what's going to have to happen? bridges are going to have to be crossed, and people will have to be united. and he made that very clear last night, early this morning. >> now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division, have to get together. to all the republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as one united people. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans, and this is so important to me. for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, i'm reaching out to you, for your
4:07 am
guidance and your help, so that we can work together and unify our great country. >> he went from that stage to starting to plan for his administration. and one person that he pointed out on stage was governor christie. he's in charge of the transition team. many people thought, really, you're going to need a transition team? he had that horrible three weeks in court looking at bridgegate. he was singled out last night as somebody who played a key role in getting that election win for donald trump. now what does it mean? it means that governor christie has never looked stronger. actually, the only time he's looked stronger is when he won re-election. >> it's historic. and who is going to be eventually the first female president? >> probably beyonce. meanwhile, the sun is rising in new york city. donald trump supporters have been celebrating all night long. this was the crowd outside our headquarters, which is going to be a new go-to spot for every presidential election. right after fox news called the
4:08 am
race at 2:40 in the morning. >> screen left. screen right was the shock setting in for hillary clinton supporters. >> was that a lady on the ground, huddled? >> a lot of disappointed people this morning on this wednesday morning. >> there's the lady on the ground. >> all right. team coverage. >> the shock is still setting in for hillary clinton supporters. many of them are unable to hold back the tears, as you're seeing, over news that donald trump was elected. >> okay. so we have both sides covered right now. senior political correspondent mike emanuel is covering the clinton campaign. he's across the river in brooklyn. first, we start up the street. john roberts camped out, literally, he just got a tent yesterday at the tent place. he's in midtown manhattan. >> the tents are cheaper than the property there. so that was smart. >> reporter: exactly. we're going to claim squatters' rights here in a couple days. i think we've probably been here long enough. good morning to you, ainsley, steve, and brian. donald trump back in trump tower. they still have the sidewalk
4:09 am
closed off. they should be opening it up a little later on today. really interesting to see, too, they've got a line of dump trucks in front of trump tower. they were put there yesterday as a security caution, should anybody try to ram some sort of vehicle into the tower. we do not know how long they will stay. might be for the rest of the day, might be until he moves to washington. we'll find out. so much for predictions that donald trump was not only going to lose the presidency but was going to decimate all the down ballot races. this morning he finds himself the president-elect with a republican controlled congress. so he may actually be able, as president, to get some things done. tweeting about that this morning, just a short time ago, said there was very little sleep. such a beautiful and important evening. the forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. we will all come together as never before. his victory speech about four hours ago at the hilton, thanking a lot of people. obviously his family members, his campaign staff, politicians who stuck their neck out for him, and supported him all the way along. then there was this touching
4:10 am
moment when he also thanked some of his family members, a couple of whom, three of whom at least, couldn't be there with him last night. listen to this. >> first i want to thank my parents, who i know are looking down on me right now. i also want to thank my sisters, maryann and elizabeth, who are here with us tonight, and my brother robert. my great friend. also my late brother fred. great guy. fantastic guy. >> reporter: of course, one of the big knocks on now president-elect trump throughout this entire campaign was did he have any foreign policy experience and would he tie the world up in knots should he become president. well, he had this message for the world yesterday. listen to this. >> i want to tell the world community that while we will always put america's interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone. all people and all other
4:11 am
nations. we will seek common ground, not hostility. partnership, not conflict. >> reporter: so they're not going to wait too long before they get into the difficult work in the transition. some of the staffers were leaving this morning about 4:30. they said they're supposed to be on a conference call at 7:30 and back to work at trump tower at 10:00 this morning. no rest for those who now will govern the united states. brian, ainsley, steve? >> well, if they would have lost, they'd be out of work. >> we have a president-elect who doesn't need almost any sleep. we just saw that. thanks so much, john. here's how the world is reacting. the french ambassador to the united states tweeted this. the world is collapsing before our eyes. i imagine he's not happy. teresa may called directly to congratulate. the chinese president tweeted out a congratulations to -- >> so did putin. >> vladimir putin says he looks forward to working with president-elect trump. >> hillary clinton opting out of her own election day party,
4:12 am
leaving her supporters there in shock as she concedes to donald trump by picking up the phone and calling him. >> fox news senior political correspondent mike emanuel is in brooklyn, new york, where the democratic nominee -- we think at some point she's going to address her staff and maybe make a public announcement. mike, did they give you any indication of her agenda today? >> reporter: brian, ainsley, steve, good morning to you. hillary clinton in the final days of the campaign talked about the need to heal the country after this difficult election. she will get a chance to start that process a little later when she speaks. i'm told we'll get more details on timing and location when they are set. hillary clinton has been out of the public view since very early yesterday morning when she voted at the local school there in chappaqua, new york. she described voting for herself as the most humbling feeling because she knows the responsibility that goes with being president. campaign staff, supporters, and friends were all gathered at her election night event, expecting it to be a celebration and to be historic.
4:13 am
late night after 2:00 a.m., her campaign chairman sent those supporters home. >> they're still counting votes, and every vote should count. several states are too close to call, so we're not going to have anything more to say tonight. but listen. listen to me. everybody should head home. get some sleep. we'll have more to say tomorrow. >> reporter: a short time later, clinton called trump to concede. with all the vip surrogates from president obama to bruce springsteen to lebron james working on her behalf, this has to be a particularly stinging defeat. ainsley, steve, brian? >> right. mike, on her own, she just never got the crowds with the excitement, even with lebron james. meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, what will congress look like under president-elect trump? the republicans now have control of capitol hill.

after a long, hard fight, republicans retain their congressional control. the big question now, what can
4:18 am
we expect from capitol hill lawmakers under president trump? here to weigh in on this is real clear politics national political reporter katelyn hughy burns. what does this mean for republicans and democrats now that republicans will control the senate, the house h and we have donald trump as president? >> this was a republican sweep, really. this was a really big night for republicans, especially in terms of the senate. remember all those senate races that we covered and the big question was whether donald trump would be a drag on some of these candidates. and each kind of ran their own races in different ways. some ran away from him. some embraced him. some were, you know, trying to walk a middle line. and most of these senators, republican incumbent senators, were elected. we're still waiting on the results in new hampshire to play out. pennsylvania, ohio, north carolina, a lot of these key battlegrounds also elected the republican senators. >> important key senate races were won by the gop. senator ron johnson.
4:19 am
he won. people were wondering if he would win that state of wisconsin. senator marco rubio running against patrick murphy down in florida. then you had ron portman who won as a republican. pat toomey won as a republican. and senator richard burr won. why do you think that is? >> i think the big takeaway from last night was this message being sent to washington. not only by electing donald trump but also sending back these republican senators and electing a republican house again as well. that was one of the bigger questions we had going into this race, what the down ballot effect would be. we saw over the course of this campaign that it kind of changed. we saw some of these senators, though, always running ahead, mostly, of donald trump in their own polling. in some of these places, his wins there were outperforming expectations, helping bring them up as well.
4:20 am
>> the republicans will need 60 votes to get anything passed in the senate or congress. there aren't that many in order to get anything passed. they're going to have to turn to some of the moderate liberals in order to get things done. will that happen? >> there are not that many moderate liberals left in congress. in 2014 a lot of those senators were voted out of office in states like louisiana and others in the south. so the senate is certainly more polarized, but there are senators like joe manchin, who represents west virginia, senator angus king, who is technically an independent. also look at some of the more liberal senators in the senate right now. people like elizabeth warren. bernie sanders is still there. so they might be people to watch in terms of the opposition. >> okay. thanks. >> thank you. kellyanne conway took the wheel of the trump campaign and never looked back. now here we are. she's going to join us live to react to the incredible victory for the trump campaign coming up

good morning, america. we have a new president-elect. his name is donald j. trump. the 45th president of the united states. as we look down at liberty island and the statue of liberty on this shocking wednesday morning. >> so for now, she will be the only lady liberty. we do not have a female president this morning. >> just amazing when you consider the fact that donald trump used to join our show once a week to talk about what's in the news. then a short time later, he
4:25 am
would be the news around the world as he becomes the president-elect of the united states. he'll be the 45th president. the guy that's probably scratching his head and saying how did this happen the most, more than hillary clinton, has to be president obama. because he said, don't destroy my legacy. you're leaving me with 54% approval rating. don't destroy my legacy. elect hillary clinton. and they didn't. >> well, people aren't in support of what's going on in the establishment right now. they want change. and they said that loud and clear last night. throughout his campaign, donald trump predicted a brexit election here in the united states. >> no one -- nobody knew it would be bigger than brexit, but steve hilton is a former adviser to the uk prime minister david cameron. we've been talking to him over the last two months. every single time he says, i see a lot of similarities, even though when donald trump had the billy bush tape and other things came out that made him look like he was bottoming out, you said there was something there. did you really expect this, steve? >> well, it's amazing, really. all night long, and it's been a
4:26 am
long night, i've been using that word, wow, isn't this amazing. then i stop myself and think, it's not that amazing. actually, it's the same, as we've discussed many times. i feel like i ought to be there with you in new york for a group hug at this moment. we've been saying this all along, which is that you have, first of all, so many people who support trump, who really responded to his economic agenda, to what he was saying about jobs and growth and opportunity and on immigration. but who were completely shamed by the media and by the establishment into being told that they were xenophobic, racists. the same thing happened with brexit. they were told they were narrow minded, bad people. so it's not surprising. but really, the big point is what underlies these two things. it's much, much bigger and more
4:27 am
significant what's happened here in america. that is that for decades now working americans have been completely let down by an establishment that has pursued an agenda on globalization and on trade and on the economy that have benefitted the very richest, but which have left half of americans earning less than they did 17 years ago despite having republicans in charge or democrats in charge. it's all been the same to them. and that's what they've responded to. the desire for a real shake-up from that failed agenda. >> sure. and steve, as well, over the last number of months, donald trump has reminded people that for the average american, the system is rigged. when we see, you know, the wikileaks and we hear about whatever happened with the fbi investigation into her e-mails, it just looks like there's a different set of rules for the elites and everybody else is getting screwed. >> that's exactly right. i think it's all come together to this moment.
4:28 am
what you've seen really is working americans giving a middle finger, a massive middle finger to that establishment because they knew all along that this is how it was working. and that was proved during the campaign. >> establishment leaders all around the world, i wonder if they're scratching their heads this morning saying, uh-oh, i'm scared, because this seems to be sweeping all across the globe now. what is your message for our viewer about the relationship with putin? because he said -- hillary clinton wanted to paint this picture that he was in bed with putin, that they were best friends. he said in the last debate, we're not best friends, i've just said i want to work with him, just like i'm working with the president of mexico to get more bees with honey. what's your message to all of us? >> you know, that whole argument about russia really made me very angry because if you think about who's been making life easier for putin, it was obama who was the one who stood by when putin marched into the ukraine and did nothing basically and actually said as much. obama said in an interview,
4:29 am
well, does anyone really expect us to do anything and to stand up? that's in europe's backyard. we're not going to respond. so it was on his watch. when clinton was secretary of state, putin became this kind of rogue actor on the world stage. the truth is that leaders like putin respond to strength. i think that what you're going to see now is a president that's going to stand up for a strong america and for the values of america but with real strength that we haven't seen for many years. >> yeah, i mean, trusting vladimir putin, i think that's a real stretch, but getting his respect is not. i got to ask you this, steve. you have a president-elect that even his billionaire friends did not finance his campaign. the people he ran with and built stuff with and go to his clubs. then you have the establishment of the party not going to bat for him outside of senator sessions from alabama and others like mayor giuliani. he's taking the oval office and doesn't really owe anyone anything. this is the ultimate freedom agenda for a leader, isn't it?
4:30 am
>> it's exactly right. what was really interesting during the campaign was that trump was the one leading amongst small donors. they really responded to him. this is what people want to see. when he talked about draining the swamp and dealing with the corruption that everyone can see, again through the wikileaks, going on in d.c., stuff we suspected all along and now we really see it, this is exactly the kind of leader you want who is not behold on en to donors and special interests, who can shake things up and make american democracy what it really should be, the voice of the people. >> now it's his chance to make america great again. can he do it? stay tuned. steve hilton joining us today from california. ste steve >> thank you. >> great to be with you. cheers and tears. not the only reactions to last night's election results. the financial market taking significant hits overnight. stewart varney is here to explain what that means for you

ladies and gentlemen, i am officially running for president of the united states, and we are going to make our country great again. >> okay. so the date was june 16th, 2015. the most famous escalator ride
4:35 am
in the history of american politics. and at the end of that ride, ultimately donald trump would be elected the 45th president-elect of the united states of america. his campaign manager kellyanne conway, who has been working out of trump towers for a number of months, joins us live right now. kellyanne, you know, yesterday they were talking about how is donald trump's momentum versus her machine? she had a great machine and ultimately she would win. what happened? >> we won. >> that simple. >> i think a few things happened. we've been seeing it in the data for a while. a lot of people just don't model the electorate properly. they're using old models that reflect different candidates and different times and not really appreciating the fact that people make up their minds based on a number of inputs. the issues, the individuals, the images, the ideas. they stir that up in their big voter caldron and make a choice. the other thing we noticed, and
4:36 am
i talked about it on your show before but it really came home yesterday, is that hillary clinton just couldn't get past her ceiling. she couldn't bust through this 45%, 46% in most of these states that president obama carried twice with well over 50%. we saw some vulnerability and softness there in her numbers. then it's really donald trump. the man is brilliant. the man is gutsy. the man ran and sacrificed to do this for the country. he didn't need the money and the fame and the power and the status. it's very attractive to people because for him, he can literally, literally satiate that appetite for an outsider who goes to washington owing nobody anything. >> i don't even know if we have the twitter picture that came out when you guys were about to take florida. looked like you were on deck to take north carolina. you would take both. then ohio. then all the sudden a picture popped out, a tweet, to see the family. i looked at donald trump's face in this picture.
4:37 am
it never looked quite like this. it's almost as if he was saying, i'm going to be president. the reality actually happened. so it's easy to talk when you got momentum and the wind at your back. do you notice a change when he realized he won? did something change about him at that moment when he realized he's going to be number 45? >> yes, but he's been humble for a while, brian. i say that because if you look at all the polls -- and when he talks about rigged system, he definitely means the polls. he was never leading in pennsylvania. not one time. and we would not give up on pennsylvania. that was my reach state as the campaign manager. we just kept going there. ivanka trump went there, maielaa trump, tiffany trump, mike pence. we invested money there in ground game. why? because his message is one that fits with so many people in pennsylvania and what they're telling pollsters. so it's not until you see you're actually winning a state that no poll had you winning that you
4:38 am
realize, i can actually do this. as soon as we saw we were protecting our core four states, iowa, ohio, florida, north carolina, which were no small feat, we knew that we could just flip one or two more states and become president of the united states. so he already knew all the data. he knew what the possibilities were. he knew we had six or seven different paths to 270. but it's when you start to see that. i think it's when these silly exit polls start fading into view and they get replaced by actual returns from real voters. then you realize that people have spoken. >> kellyanne, woman to woman, it was awesome to see a female president on the ballot. it's awesome that you're running a campaign. i know you're raising daughters. i have a little girl at home. so i'm really, really just -- my best to you and your girls. i know you've been away from your family for a long time working hard for what you believe is best for this country. i wanted to ask you about president obama. i know he made a phone call last night to say congratulations to donald trump. i understand that donald trump
4:39 am
was on stage, and he missed the first call when the president tried to call him. is that correct? >> that did happen. but then donald trump called the president and they spoke in the wee hours of the night. had a very productive conversation. they plan to meet maybe as soon as tomorrow. >> what did they say? >> you know, congratulations and we'll work together. you know, thank you for calling. and it was a gracious conversation between secretary clinton and mr. trump earlier in the night, maybe an hour before that, ainsley. she called and congratulated him, conceded to him, and mr. trump commended secretary clinton, that she's tough and smart and waged a hard campaign. but it's just really -- i feel like it's the american dream. you know, the most popular text i probably received from people before he won was, please tell this man thank you for running. thank you because i live in a country where someone's american dream can be i've never held office, never been involved in politics at all, and i can be
4:40 am
president of the united states. it gives people a lot of hope. it gives people who aren't part of the system and aren't part of the, you know, special interests. it gives them hope that they can get a fair shot as well. >> and it was classy that secretary clinton called last night, rather than dragging it out. because there's still a few outstanding states. i got to ask you this though. and it goes back to how donald trump got elected. that is -- and nobody's come up with a term for it yet, although people have called them hidden voters. the day you got the job, i saw you in the hall here at fox. i said, kellyanne, have you figured out, have you figured out a metrics to measure the number of people who are afraid to tell pollsters that they support donald trump because, you know, whoever has got the clipboard is going to think, oh, this person is a racist or a bigot or fill in the blank. and that day you told me you thought it was between 3% and 6%, that number. i think you were probably right,
4:41 am
right? >> well, i appreciate that. i call them the undercover trump voters. i think they've been unfairly -- well, many call them hidden and shy. i've always called them undercover for a reason. it's something i've been working on since i got here in july, which is it's not that they're embarrassed to say they're voting for donald trump. what they are is tired of arguing with people in their social circle or their families because normally these people would vote for a democrat. indeed, many of them did vote for president obama twice. some of them even voted for president bill clinton twice. but the undercover trump voters, small but potent force, who also said, you know what, i'm not supposed to be voting for him. i'm a woman, i'm hispanic, i'm african-american, i'm a union member. i shouldn't be voting for him, they tell me. but darn it, i'm going to vote for him. why should somebody tell me what to do, how to think, whom to vote for. th thing that was clear is they want to take the country in a new and different
4:42 am
direction. two, they had an unfavorable view of hillary clinton. and three, they matched up with the issue set with donald trump. so maybe somebody who's upset about the obamacare premium increases or someone who believes that we should defeat radical islamic terrorism as a priority or someone who believes we need more job creation, bring back manufacturing jobs from china and mexico. it all needed to line up. he did a great job of sealing the deal. candidates matter. folks, take it to the bank. candidates matter. there's no substitute for a great candidate. we were out -- oh, my god. like eight times our personnel, eight times our money, but we outworked them and outsmarted them. outclassed them in some cases. >> no doubt about it, they're going to be doing forensics on this for generations. kellyanne conway, thanks so much. and congratulations. >> take a nap today, please. >> kellyanne, if he needs you at the white house, would you go to the white house? >> oh, if he needs me, yes. if there's something that i can do that can leverage this for
4:43 am

4:47 am
the nasdaq down 112. stewart varney joins us live. what's going on with the markets? >> okay. first of all, backtrack just a little bit here. what we saw with the election of donald trump last night is a realignment, a revolution in the economy that may be coming down the pike at us. we're going to go from all government all the time to a much bigger accent on private enterprise. high tax to low tax. slow growth to rapid growth. that's what wall street likes in the long run. but in the short run, they're not quite sure what donald trump is going to do. they're scared. there's that instability. you sell in a stable market place. so yeah, we're going to be down 300, 400 points at the opening. maybe more, maybe less, but we're going to be down in all probability. >> you know what wall street looks at too? they say, he might be able to get things done. he has a republican house and senate. so that agenda could work. yet, if they felt as though the agenda could work, most economists thought wall street would embrace this philosophy.
4:48 am
>> you're right. he's got a republican congress and a republican in the white house. it's an open field. let's go at it. there will be an infrastructure package. there will be tax cuts. there'll be some regulatory reform. wall street likes that down the road. i had a former partner at goldman sachs, a guy who knows what he's talking about, he said you buy those stocks. buy it now. that's what he said. i'm not giving the advice. that's what he said. he said this is the best buying opportunity in years. >> wow. >> that's just one person. >> what about the fact that in the final month donald trump really hammered the affordable care act? it's costing so many people so much ultimately, if they repeal and replace it, isn't that going to be good for the economy? >> yes, very good for the economy. very good for middle america. whether it's good for health care insurers and their stocks, i really don't know. they've been all over the place recently. >> they've made plenty of money. >> for the economy, you get rid of obamacare, replace and repeal, you've got yourself a middle class push.
4:49 am
it's good for the middle america. >> and the house has a detailed plan you can look at online to see who it's going to cost and who's going to pay. stewart, we're going to watch your show. great job last night. watched a lot of your coverage. we're going to watch your show from 9:00 until noon because that's lounng you go. >> you got a brexit in the uk. we got a brexit here too. >> it really feels like that. >> another thing we took from the brits. coming up straight ahead, the washington outsider will now be inside the white house. >> herman cain nows all about being the nonconventional candidate. he's here to tell us what a trump administration is going to look like. that's coming up next.

4:53 am
well, the experts, so-called experts, said it would never happen. now donald trump is the president-elect, and washington is in shock. >> so can lawmakers learn from this? here to weigh in is 2012 presidential candidate himself herman cain, an early believer. i know you're happy about it. what do you think turned this election his way and stunned the world? and i'm not exaggerating, stunned the world. >> well, i'm relieved that the american people didn't buy the constant negative kool-aid that the liberal media was feeding them. second, i think what turned it was people are not stupid. at least the majority of americans are not stupid. they didn't fall for it. and what we heard last night through the vote was the voice of the people. they wanted the truth, they
4:54 am
wanted to hear substance, which donald trump put on the table over and over and over again, even though the liberal media didn't want to tell the people. that's what turned this election in his favor. and yes, i'm jubilant but i'm also more relieved. >> well, i know you were the former ceo of godfather's pizza. i've heard your story. i know you worked really hard to become the ceo of a huge company. people look at donald trump, his father gave him a million dollars. he turns it into a billion dollars. some people are saying he gives america hope. the working class person can work hard, and their dreams can come true and someone like donald trump can become president of the united states. do you think that's why he won? >> that's one of the reasons that he won. class warfare no longer works. they tried to make his billionaire status negative but it didn't work. it just didn't work. then secondly, he does demonstrate that if you work hard enough long enough, you can achieve whatever your dreams are if you get government out of the way. and here's the third thing,
4:55 am
ainsley. he doesn't owe anybody anything. that appealed to the american people. he owes nobody any favors and that also appealed to the american people in my opinion. >> and herman, the american people were not listening to the pundits. the exit polls last night, the initial round were wrong. a lot of the polls that came out before the election were wrong. reminiscent of -- and i think there's a portrait of ronald reagan behind you. a lot of people are reminded of ronald reagan regarding this. they said of reagan, oh, he was a "b" actor, he was a movie with a monkey, he was completely unqualified. but it turns out, he did a great job. >> he did a great job. and back then, like now, the american people were smart enough, contrary to what the democrats thought, to elect someone they believed in. they believed in reagan. they believe in donald trump. because he has not lied.
4:56 am
the media has tried to paint him in a negative light. they tried to cover up hillary clinton's false corruption and everything else, but the american people are not stupid. i think that's the big message with his win. >> and by the way, if donald trump is smart, he'll tap into your treasury and business background. would you consider an appointment to the white house? >> i would consider is, brian, but i have a good job. i'm not looking for a job. i'm more interested in america moving forward. i believe donald trump is going to do that. i would consider it, but i'm not looking for a job. i'm just thrilled we can now get this country back on the right track. that's what i'm more excited about. >> all right. herman cain joining us from down in georgia. herman, thank you very much. >> yes, happy to be with you. >> and he was one of the first on the trump train. >> yeah, he was. coming up, our post-election show rolls on. lieutenant general michael flynn and rnc chairman reince priebus all here to react to this historic trump victory.

i've just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us. it's about us. now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement. it's a movement comprised of americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs who want and expect our government to serve the people and serve the people it will.

working together, we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the american dream. no dream is too big, no challenge is too great. nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. america will no longer settle for anything less than the best. >> wow. that does rhyme, and you are looking now at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, the home of barack obama for the last 7 3/4 years. at the end of january, that will be the home of donald j. trump. he has won the presidency. he is president-elect. vice president-elect mike pence introduced him last night at the new york hilton, making it official. the greatest upset in american political history took place hours ago, and we're still getting the numbers in. >> he and melania will be moving in there, i assume.
5:02 am
barron will go to school there. >> donald trump made his acceptance speech last night in the 3:00 hour at his headquarters. upper right corner shows you the states that he won. he won the red ones. there's a bunch of them. a couple states still outstanding. michigan, minnesota, arizona, alaska. he's got 274 so far. the balance of power, as you can see, he won the white house and republicans won the senate, as you can see right there. they've got 51. also at the house. they've got 247-188. >> talk about an underdog winning. hillary clinton has tried this before twice. she's now failed to become president of the united states. donald trump, when we were all going to bed, many people thought hillary was going to take this and win. they were neck and neck in four of the battleground states. wisconsin, new hampshire, pennsylvania, and michigan. and last night when pennsylvania was called -- >> boom. >> -- here on fox news, they all said now donald trump will be
5:03 am
president of the united states. >> the official call came from hillary clinton. actually, huma abedin reportedly made the call. kellyanne conway picked up. kellyanne, this is huma, the secretary of state would like to speak to donald trump. they got on the phone and what kellyanne conway has relayed is donald trump said you're a smart, tough lady and you ran a great campaign. thank you for calling. i respect you. they hung up. he spoke out. at 9:30, hillary clinton will address the press. a little after that, on this wednesday, barack obama will speak. he also talked to donald trump. >> he did, and he invited donald trump to the white house, and donald trump will be at the white house tomorrow morning. meanwhile -- >> let's try to cover that. >> i think we got a camera down there. >> i think we can squeeze that in. >> the crowd goes wild. celebrations erupting outside of our studio after fox news called the race for donald trump around 2:40 eastern time. one of the greatest political

outsiders ever, donald trump will become the 45th president of the united states. the guy who's got a big jet and has a mansion is going to get a bigger jet and a more famous mansion. >> that's true. spent a lot of his own money, $100 million, to get into the white house. and it worked. so let's get right to our fox news senior national correspondent john roberts, who's live in midtown at trump tower right behind you on fifth avenue. hey, john. >> reporter: good morning, ainsley, brian, steve. he may be trading up in terms of the prestige of the address, but i think he's going to be trading down in terms of square footage. don't forget he's got a lot of square footage in the building behind me there, trump tower, on the 66th floor. it's interesting. we've been standing out in front of this building for months, covering a presidential candidate, now the president-elect of the united states resides in the building behind me. don't forget, he's said when he moves into the white house, he wants to build a ballroom on the south lawn because he says it's
5:05 am
embarrassing to put up one of those temporary tents any time there's some sort of state function at the white house. so we'll see if he makes good on that promise. by the way, in addition to the congratulations that he got from secretary clinton and the president, he got a telegram, i know you're saying telegram, what's that, from vladimir putin of russia saying that he hopes to end the crisis in u.s./russia relations. obviously a lot of people are very happy about what happened last night. people who have supported donald trump all the way along. you knew something was happening in terms of a movement because they were putting so many people into so many different events arc around the country. here's what some of his supporters said last night after the victory. listen. >> my spine is tingling. it's an awesome night. it's a historic night for america. i feel like it's a second revolution. >> thank you for your years of service, but it's time to turn the page and move on in american history. >> the silent majority rose up
5:06 am
tonight all through grassroots america and elected this man president of the united states. >> reporter: obviously donald trump had a lot of people to thank last night. he began with his late parents, moved on to his family, and then had a special thanks to a lot of the politicians who supported him, sticking their necks out for him where a lot of people wouldn't. here's what trump said about that just a few hours ago. >> this political stuff is nasty and it's tough. i want to thank my family very much. really, fantastic. i want to give a special thanks to our former mayor rudy giuliani. unbelievable. we have over 200 generals and admirals that have endorsed our campaign, and they're special people and it's really an honor. reince is really a star. he's the hardest working guy. >> reporter: trump has got a lot of work ahead of him. obviously he's made a lot of promises, a lot of things to do in the first hundred days. needs to get on that in terms of the transition. won't it be an interesting
5:07 am
picture on thursday when he meets with president obama. the two of them said some pretty nasty things about each other in the closing weeks of this campaign. oh, to be a fly on the wall there at the white house. ainsley, brian, steve? >> they'll all be smiling for the cameras. >> so intriguing. john roberts, thanks so much. you know what, donald trump may have spent $100 million, but john roberts is worth $100 million for us. wouldn't be surprised if he uses that quote for his next contract negotiation. joining us now is lieutenant general michael flynn. he was one of the first on board the trump train. general, i've seen you in the green room. there were times and tweets that got you steamed. now you're sitting here as one of the key confidants in a donald trump victory party. what is your gut reaction? when you saw him on the stage, what were you thinking? >> well, let me tell you, you know, i've been with donald trump now for over a year and a half. i knew it from the beginning and felt it from the beginning. you're going to see as the results come in over the course
5:08 am
of today, you know, you're going to be looking at probably 300-plus electoral votes. this is beyond a normal election. this is such a historic victory for the people of this country. so many people that came out to see donald trump, to hear his message. you know, there's a lot of people that are relieved in the country today because of what he was able to bring to bear in the last -- frankly the last three or four months. this has been a long slog. now is time. i was so happy with his message when he accepted the -- basically being the president. he talked about his family, and he basically continued to inspire america, which is what most americans want. most americans want hope, inspiration, and they want to feel like they can achieve the american dream. >> i think you're right. his speech was humble,
5:09 am
inclusive, presidential. and people are looking to the future. you know, general, you were not treated well by this administration, and there are so many people out there who are watching us right now who feel like the administration was not necessarily on their side. they felt the country was going in the wrong direction. and those were the invisible people that apparently the pollsters never talked to. now today i'm sure they're doing a happy dance where it's kind of like maybe it's not rigged going forward. >> yeah, well, i'm going to tell you what. there's going to be a lot of soul searching by the media. that unincludes you all. and the polling people. i've always said i don't believe in these polls. frankly, that whole system has brown blown up. here's what i would say. we have a lot of challenges around the world and right here at home. and that's been the message that donald trump has brought to bear with his vision about how he plans on dealing with those
5:10 am
challenges from, you know, reducing taxes, to our border security, to all the things we've talked about overseas, trade deals, et cetera. so his message resonated with a large, large group of people in this country. and now we have to focus. now we have to be even more relentless. and i said this to him and others, that you know, the campaign trail here, this is my first experience with it, you know, now that sort of stage is over. the really hard work is going to begin now. that's the work of making sure that we do the things we need to do for the people of this country. >> general, when it comes to the military, you know best. you know it doesn't matter your color, your creed, your religion. when you're out there on the battlefield. what is your message going to be to donald trump to unite this great country we live in? the voters have spoken. people are tired of the mud slinging, tired of the negativity. they just want to move forward as a country. what's your advice to him?
5:11 am
>> my advice is really -- you know, it's to be somewhat simple. character counts. leadership matters. big leadership matters. we like to win. we like winners. donald trump is clearly that. be we like our winners to be humble as well. that sort of strain of humility in all of us, in all of us as americans -- and i will tell you i learned that in the military in spades because we have the greatest people in this country serving in our military. they like to win but at the same time, they're willing to be humble in that winning. >> donald trump sounds a lot like your book in his policies and beliefs. what should iran, russia, and maybe even syrian president assad know about a donald trump foreign policy? >> well, i'll tell you what, it's going to be one that leads
5:12 am
from the front. and not to put anybody on notice, but to let people know that donald trump is very serious guy when it comes to defense and our military. all the things he talked about where our military is at today and where our military needs to be is so true. you cannot have a complex, uncertain world and have a depleted military. you just can't. that message resonated big time with the american public because they know -- they're here and see all these crazy things around the world. we have a military that's the weakest and smallest it's been. that's not because of the men and women that serve in the military. that's because of policy decisions that have been made by this administration. that has to change. >> general, steve's phone is ringing and someone is saying hi, steve. >> yeah, mike just called me. all right. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> you guys have even better music today. >> you know what, we played "get lucky" yesterday.
5:13 am
donald trump got lucky. all right. thank you, sir. >> general, see you tomorrow. you're on every day now. >> donald trump campaigned on change, so was it that message that put him over the edge, over the top, when many said he could never win this election? we're going to break down the exit polls next. big hour. rnc chairman reince priebus, lr -- larry sabato to break down the numbers. we have a new president. his name, donald trump.

introducing the new turbocharged volkswagen alltrack with 4motion all-wheel drive. soon to be... everywhere. to call donald trump's victory a surprise would be an understatement. look how hillary clinton supporters reacted to the news late last night. they were not expecting it. an unbelievable upset across the battleground states, so what actually made the difference in those states? lee carter is here with the exit polls. good morning, lee. >> great to be here. >> great to see you. exit polls came out at about 5:15. it looked like hillary was going to win. when you really research these exit polls and you look and dig deeper, we're learning who can bring change, who the american
5:18 am
people really thought could bring change. this is what one of the exit polls showed. that donald trump got 83% and clinton 14%. >> it's not surprising that trump would be change agent. when we know that americans are looking for change and they say, when you fill in the blank, it's donald trump the one who's going to do it. a lot of thing in the exit polls weren't huge surprises if you looked at the margin of errors going into this. but add them all together and you'll start to see the pieces that made this puzzle. >> we know he's going to bring change. hillary clinton is in the picture with barack obama. the question is, did the voter want change or did they want more of the same? clearly they wanted change. the majority did. look at this next one. they polled working class whites without college degrees. only 28% were for hillary clinton. 67% for donald trump. what was it about him that appealed to that sect? >> i think he was speaking to them for the first time in a very, very long time.
5:19 am
they feel like they've been forgotten by a lot of the policies of the last eight years. even more than that, there are people that you would talk to in focus groups and around the country. i've heard tons of stories. people say, no one has talked to me in forever. i haven't been excited about a candidate. i haven't even wanted to vote in 20 years. here i am going to vote again. he gave people hope. everybody can talk about the anger and negativity. that's not what these people were excited about. they were excited about the opportunity to find more yobs, for the economy to be working for them again. they were hopeful. they weren't necessarily as reasoni angry as everyone was talking about. >> remember those primaries, he won by five or six points. what was happening yesterday? were people just too embarrassed to say they were voting for him? >> all throughout the primaries, you looked at the polls, trump was never going to win, and he always outperformed by five to six points. florida was neck and neck. trump won by 19 points.
5:20 am
so we definitely have a phenomenon that trump outperforms the polls. part of that is probably due to the fact people don't want to say it out loud. several people said, this isn't about him. this is change for our country. all of what trump did was he performed within the margin of error but in the best possible way he could have. >> it's unbelievable. you've been great. thank you so much for working so hard. >> so great to be here. >> thanks, lee. next on the rundown, republicans controlling both congress and the white house for the first time in a decade. how did that happen? and will washington finally get something done? we are breaking it all down for you. ♪

all right. it was a great night for the gop. no doubt about it. donald trump pwinning the presidency and republicans keep control of the house and senate. >> heather is here with a look at how it's shaping up on capitol hill this morning. >> good morning. what a morning. we're crunching the numbers and taking a look. this is the first time since 2007 that republicans have controlled both the white house and also congress. as of now, here's how the senate is breaking down so far this morning. republicans have 51 seats. still in control of congress, or in the senate, i should say. they lost three seats. they don't have enough votes to break a filibuster.

one race is still too close to call. here are some of the important senate races won by republicans. senator ron johnson defending his seat against russ feingold in wisconsin. >> that's a stunner. >> that was considered one of the most vulnerable seats in the senate. democrats had poured millions of dollars into that race within the last couple weeks. the ads were everywhere. >> feingold held that seat, then johnson took it from him, and he's holding on to it. >> so johnson winning. florida senator marco rubio defeating patrick murphy. in ohio, rob portman winning. pat toomey winning a tight race against katy mcginty. in north carolina, richard burr beating deborah ross. two races have not been decided just yet. it is still considered too close to call in the state of new hampshire. republican senator kelly ayotte leads the democratic governor maggie hassan by less than 2,000 votes. ayotte pulled her endorsement of donald trump last month, so we'll be watching this race
5:26 am
throughout the day. louisiana has an open seat. it'll head to a runoff election next month. it'll be foster campbell against republican john kennedy. let's talk about the house. democrats making gains there. a net gain of six seats with a few races still outstanding. but this is considered a huge failure for democrats. they had anticipated picking up at least 12 seats. republicans still holding a majority. 235 to 191. leadership still has to be determined. house speaker paul ryan could face a challenge for his position. he's set to speak later today. overnight, we know he talked with both donald trump and mike pence. talking about the senate again, mitch mcconnell remains senate majority leader. the 150th congress is set to convene in early january, just before trump takes the oath of office. we were talking about this earlier, how i was in wisconsin. that tells the story about what happened in the election. donald trump became the champion of the common man, white-working
5:27 am
class voters upset with the status quo and hillary clinton. they went to donald trump big time. >> the last time that happened was with ronald raigen in 19 -- ronald reagan in 1984. you recall donald trump lost the primary to ted cruz there by 13 points. so an amazing turnaround for him. but he dug into union support for hillary clinton, the white working class voters, and even women as well. >> and the people you were talking to at the diner yesterday, they made it very clear they didn't like the way things were going in the country. they wanted to take the country back. maybe they did. >> and the fbi investigation affected them as well. and donald trump's position on nafta, jobs. a lot of people feel like they haven't made economic headway. >> very curious to see if paul ryan and donald trump work together. >> that was awesome watching all the diner coverage yesterday. we had four of you out there. all of you were talking union workers supporting donald trump, which was surprising. >> after watching all that, i

5:33 am
networks was that donald trump was going to lose. >> yeah, well, first of all, those exit polls, they always throw campaigns into a tail spin. no matter how many times campaigns and operatives say these don't matter, don't worry about it, you still go bananas when those things come out. but i think what we did on the campaign was just say, no, enough. we're not going to let this information get in the way with what we know we did and where we're at. >> well, what numbers later did you see that said, hey, wait a minute, we got a shot at this? >> well, i would just say that the rnc and the campaign worked hand in glove together. we were together in a particular room. as people know, it was sort of an accumulation of states that kept going our direction. we stayed on florida. we knew we couldn't get off of florida. we didn't know that michigan and pennsylvania and wisconsin at the time were going to go the way they did. we had a good feeling about it. >> but you needed florida.
5:34 am
>> needed it. so we stayed on it. once that started coming our direction, exactly where the early vote advantage was for us, the democrats tried playing this game for a week that they had this early vote advantage. we kept coming on these shows saying, no, we're the ones 100,000 better today than four years ago. all of those margins fell into place. it wasn't that, that won the election. it was donald trump, his message of freedom, and sovereignty for this country. it's the same message that's winning all over the world. it won here. >> reince, you had to make a decision when the billy bush video was released, whether or not you were going to stick by his side or go a different direction and not support him like some other people in the establishment did. look at kelly ayotte and what she's facing now. how did you make that decision? i'm sure now you're glad you did. he thanked you last night. he appreciates loyalty. we know that. how did you make that decision? >> well, i mean, we've had these choices all along.

well, the heartbreak is hard to describe for some on the faces of hillary clinton's many supporters, waiting all night long to see their candidate. nobody expected her to actually lose, but she did. >> and have our first female president ever, not even larry sabato predicted this. how did the wheels come off the ball? >> brian, let me tell you something. first of all, that ball is shattered in a thousand pieces. i've got to order a new one, and they only make them in china. steve has just offered to buy one for me. i appreciate it. second, i want to tell you something in all sincerity. we were wrong. okay? the entire punditry industry, the entire polling industry, the entire analyst industry. and i want to use this opportunity to take my fair share of the blame. we were wrong. and steve just said, i want to see that egg on your face. steve, you're totally wrong.
5:52 am
i don't have egg on my face. i have omelet on my face. >> it's a whole omelet. >> there you go. i apologize. >> it's hard to read people's minds. that's sweet of you to say that. america likes humility. >> you're just doing your job. ultimately, the morning after, isn't it the -- it's been impossible to quantify who's going to go to vote. so many people, you know, get in arguments with their neighbors about donald trump or the guy with the clipboard who's going say, oh, you're for donald trump, thinking, oh, he's a bigot or a racist or whatever. so they haven't said, yes, i'm going to vote for him, but yesterday they came out. >> yes. and that is the whole industry. we have a lot to learn from this. how is it that you capture people who won't talk to pollsters or will fib to pollsters. we talk about that shy vote. some of it was there. but you know what really got me.

after hundreds of surveys, we plugged hundreds of surveys into our system. over 90% were wrong. and they managed to miss almost entirely this tremendous turnout in rural america. they had rural america pegged at about what it was four years ago. guess what, it wasn't. it was massive. listen, there are going to be blue ribbon commissions and studies up the wazoo because we need to learn exactly what went wrong. it's an industry wide failure. we've got to get it fixed. >> well, hillary clinton folks, they were pretty confident. she seemed confident. in fact, kellyanne conway with donald trump's campaign even said they've already bought their iningaugural gowns. the day before, she cancel the the fireworks display. was she worried going into yesterday? >> i think they were nervous because their background surveys, their tracking surveys did pick up tightening in michigan and maybe other places that they didn't tell us. by the way, one reason why
5:54 am
everybody in my field was so confident wasn't just all those public polls. most of us have access to those private tracking polls that they spend a fortune on. do you know that clinton was up in virtually every battleground state, not just from the clinton campaign, but from independent organizations that do tracking? and your exit polls, i hope you'll tell your audience the truth. they got it wrong too. they were adjusted later. they had hillary clinton winning in every single battleground state except for ohio where it was tied. trump won in a landslide in ohio. my point is, garbage in, garbage out. we've got to change the garbage into something that is edible and drinkable. >> and it's becau have a perfect record. when you don't, that's what makes it stand out. put this win in perspective. without hyperbole, tell me what this is in terms of american history. >> there's nothing like it.
5:55 am
there's literally nothing like it. last night i was saying, well, maybe we ought to think about dew dewey versus truemman. but that doesn't do it. this is a spectacular event we'll be studying for the rest of our lives. >> so to your class, youring g incoming class, how do you depict it? what's the headline from this election? >> well, after they stopped throwing things at me, you know, because of the failure -- and they'll also ask for better grade because they'll give me an "f," i'll try to explain it, number one, a third term, a third consecutive term for a party is really tough to get. and we just proved it again. but look, donald trump tapped into something that hillary clinton obviously was unable to in any respect. millennial turnout was down.
5:56 am
african-american turnout was down. there's so many things we're going to have to study. >> dr. larry sabato, great job through the election season. thank you for joining us today. >> thank you, guys. appreciate it. >> hillary clinton will address the press at 9:30. meanwhile, straight ahead -- >> 10:30, excuse me. >> e-mail and tweet from you about the election. and it's coming up next. (vo) maybe it was here, when you hit 300,000 miles. or here, when you walked away without a scratch. maybe it was all the times it got you safely out there.
