1:00 am
happy friendsgiving. warm up with pillsbury. and welcome back to abc 7 news election coverage. >> we have results scrolling at the bottom of your screen there as you can see. for more on the presidential election results, let's go back to chris christie sten zee. >> i'm joined by melinda jackson, the chair of political science at san jose state. thanks for sticking it out and hanging out with us. >> it's been a listening night, which had a long talk. you used the term perfect storm. what do you think is the perfect
1:01 am
storm? what are the factors? >> well, we're going to be doing a lot of analysis over the next few days to try to learn more what happened. but i think it's a combination of things. the turnout clearly was underestimated for some groups, overestimated for others. it could be african american turnout was lower and not as strong for hillary clinton. it could be the younger voters didn't turn out as much as they might have. and in many of the very close battleground states that in the end went to trump, it was a matter of 1 or 2 percentage points. and the third party votes in those states could have played a significant role. >> all right. well, you heard trump's speech tonight. do you think he struck a tone that may give some comfort to those who feared a trump presidency? did he say what he needed to say? >> i think it was good start. it was certainly a more controlled, more gracious trump than we've seen on the campaign trail. so this is a good first step. he definitely talked about wanting to come together, to be a president for all americans,
1:02 am
for the country to heal after this very divisive campaign. so we'll see. i think we really don't know what to expect from a trump presidency. but at least tonight he did strike a conciliatory tone. >> how about hillary clinton? she did not give a speech tonight. what does she need to do in the days ahead to also help bring the nation together? >> yeah, i think this was a very bitter loss for her. and unexpected. and, europe, it's been a tough road for her and a difficult campaign. i think in the days ahead she also needs to help the country to come together and reassure her supporters that life will go on and we are one country together. >> all right. we'll be listening to what she says eventually when she gives her speech. melinda jackson, thank you so much for spending the night with us. and you'll be here tomorrow morning as well. >> i will. >> abc 7 mornings. dan and ama? >> great to have her insight. >> well will be right back.
1:03 am
>> first a look at some measures that were on the san francisco ballot. honey nut cheerios get their delicious taste from honest ingredients. like real delicious honey, and real oats. ok that's still honey. ahhh, there we go. were back to honey again. who's directing this? that guy, figures. introducing tiny toast. the tiny cereal with the big taste of real fruit.

1:06 am
announced that donald trump had won the presidential election. this is video just sent by our abc 7 news crew in oakland at the corner of broadway and 12th. look at all the fires that have been set. marchers setting a number of dumpsters on fire and debris in the streets. there is also a group of demonstrators who ran on to highway 24. one of those protesters was hit by a car. first responders have taken that person away. we're going to have a full wrap-up overnight, on these overnight events on the abc 7 morning news beginning at 4:30 a.m. let's go back to sky 7 for a look at protesters. they are marching through the streets of oakland, as we told you they were on highway 24 with the eastbound shut down. you can see them in the night, marching along the streets. there are cars behind them. we saw the dumpster fires you were just speaking about, dan, and police responding nearby. but these protesters here seem to be marching freely in the streets. >> all right. we'll continue to follow this overnight and have more on abc 7
1:07 am
mornings beginning at 4:30. but the big story tonight, political history made. a surprise upset. some have called it the biggest upset in american politics in more than 100 years. donald trump will become the 45th president of the united states. it really was a remarkable evening to watch in so many respects. so surprising, so dramatic. thanks for watching and being here so late with us. we appreciate your time. i'm dan ashley. >> and i'm ama daetz. abc 7 mornings will have full results beginning at 4:30. and stay tuned for "good morning america." that's at 7:00. >> good night. we're joining "nightline" in progress. have a nice evening. sure, you could buy this. but why miss out on this? it's baking season. warm up with pillsbury. you can never tell from the outside just how many warm, flaky layers are on the inside.
1:08 am
but let's just say it's more than ever. share the warmth of grands biscuits, now with even more flaky layers it's baking season. warm up with pillsbury.
1:09 am
this is violet. she's been waiting for this moment for awhile. a moment other kids wouldn't think twice about. her first bowl of cheerios. because now that cheerios are gluten free, violet, and many others
1:10 am
are enjoying their first bowl today.
1:11 am
1:12 am
that picture of the white house at this hour. you can see it is lights out there. i'm sure they turned the lights out a little early once they saw the results were coming in not the way the president wanted. so america is waking up to one of the most stunning american political upsets in history, donald trump winning the white house. >> so how did the political pundits get this race so wrong? joining us now we got abc's political director rick klein and deputy political director shushannah walshe. how do you explain how wrong they were? >> we all missed the biggest political story of our lifetime. it is not like donald trump wasn't trying to tell us about it. he for 18 months talked about this movement and it was there, you saw the signs and saw the
1:13 am
and these yachl. you didn't see it registered in the numbers. a massive failure of political data. a massive failure i think of the country and its media to understand what was going on in this the nation because this was just a fundamental shift, a real redirection of the fundamentals of our society that were all engineered by this man who wanted to make america great again. >> what does this do for polls going forward. >> there will have to be a rethinking of the industry and soul searching. >> it seems to be a rethinking of how we do politics. one thing we talk about she had a great ground game. she outspent him on ads. she had all these people everywhere, all these backers, all these supporters. it kind of shook up everything that we know about politics. >> absolutely. organization, ground game, 3-1 spending on advertising on television. none of it mattered. all that mattered was a movement as you were talking about personality and these american workers who are struggling and
1:14 am
felt that donald trump offered change and a helping hand. >> and, rick, i'm curious in terms of strategy, you know, we after this is all over we saw all these supporters come out for hillary clinton tonight to celebrate with her if she won or be there for her if she lost and then you hear her campaign come out and say, too close, we're not going to speak and pretty sure after she concedes and now speaking tomorrow morning. why the timing of all of that. >> they were looking at the numbers in realtime. i think there was a time where they thought they had a chance to challenge some of these rust belt states and could win there they didn't want her out before that. i think this was show shocking and didn't want to put her out without a fully written speech and she gets that tomorrow instead of tonight. >> last night -- two nights ago they were popping champagne bottles. massive shock not just the country but their campaign, it's -- >> both campaigns. i honestly don't believe the
1:15 am
trump campaign thought they'd win. >> i don't think his supporters thought he would win. >> at least not this way. you see the map it's a lot of red where we expected some blue to be. i mean, where does this country go from here? i mean, he had a conciliatory speech last night where it sounded like he'd bring everybody together but had one at the convention then heard a lot of things after that. where do we go next? >> he has a hard job ahead of him and needs to bring this country together and unite -- what we found out was two americas. we may have been clueless to it before but it's right there in blue and red in front of us that his job is a tough one and -- but he needs to unite the country. >> all right, well, that was the message he certainly reflected today in his speech. we'll see what happens going forward and tomorrow we'll or later this morning i should say we look forward to hearing from hillary clinton. >> he saw this coming. none of us did. ask him what the lottery numbers
1:16 am
are. >> rick and shushannah, thank you. the other big races in the house and not. not just about the white house. >> big night politically and the states that have now legalized marijuana. stay with us.
1:17 am
i'm bushed! i've been on my feel alyea me too. excuse me...coming through! ride the gel wave of comfort with dr. scholls massaging gel insoles. they're proven to give you comfort. which helps you feel more energized ...all day long. i want what he has. life can be messy... has. but with crayola color wonder... it doesn't have to be. don't you wish life could be this mess-free? color wonder. find it in the crayola aisle. sets each sold separately. g? just switch from denture paste to sea-bond denture adhesive seals. holds stronger than the leading paste all day... without the ooze. feel secure. be yourself. with stronger, clean sea-bond.

"she's single." ...and high levels of humiliation in her daughter. in just 7 days, your joint comfort can be your kid's discomfort. osteo bi-flex. made to move. back to the breaking news concerning your money now. global stocks plunging this morning after trump's election. >> the mexican pace so was especially hard hit but asian stocks also plunged. and investors are bracing for a rough morning on wall street. >> yes, stock traders had banked on a clinton victory. abc's elizabeth hur has more on what we can expect at 9:30 eastern time. elizabeth. >> well, kendis and diane, good morning. as far as dow futures, the good news they have rebounded quite a bit overnight which is encouraging but experts say still expect a bad day for your 401(k) savings. it's an election stunner making headlines around the world and
1:19 am
tanking global stock markets from mexico to japan and europe. >> don't expect too much free trade coming from america. it could be the opposite protectionism. >> this foreign relations expert explains for investors donald trump is unpredictable and investors hate uncertainty. wall street also in panic mode. major banks are projecting this trump victory could send the s&p tumbling and the losses could be prolonged. abc's martha raddatz says those uncertainties extend well beyond the markets. >> there's going to be a lot, a lot of reaction from around the world and what this means for everybody. what it means for asia pacific. what it means for the world. is he going to pull troops out. the other thing, george, i don't think any of us really know. >> reporter: meanwhile, foreigners watching the election results are divided on trump. this man in germany saying the outcome to hard to swallow while this man says give trump a chance. so bottom line, as far as the
1:20 am
markets are concerned, one analyst said what you're seeing is investors taking the sell first and ask later approach because they just don't know what to expect from president trump. kendis and diane. >> i think he likes it that way. >> a lot of uncertainty in the markets but that can end with positive effects. elizabeth hur joining us, elizabeth, thank you. so, in addition to donald trump's win his historic one last night was also a big night for the rest of the republican party across the board. >> republicans will retain control of the senate by a narrow margin thanks in part to their upset victory in the state of wisconsin in the senate race there. >> republicans will retain control of the house, the democrats picked up only a modest number of seats. >> from marijuana to gun control coming up we'll take a look at the ballot measures that passed nationwide. >> we'll take a look at some of the front pains from around the world. we want to see some of the headlines after this last night. ! thanks for giving lien the strength to outrun her brother.
1:21 am
thanks for giving victor the energy to be the rowdiest fan. and joseph, the ability to see monsters. when you choose walgreens, you choose to make a difference... like how every vitamin and flu shot you get at walgreens helps give life-changing vitamins and vaccines... to children in need. so, really... happy thanks for giving! walgreens. at the corner of happy and healthy. as after a dvt blood clot,ital i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking.
1:22 am
don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. i'm not a customer, but i'm calling about that credit scorecard. give it. sure! it's free for everyone. oh! well that's nice! and checking your score won't hurt your credit. oh! i'm so proud of you. well thank you. free at at discover.com/creditscorecard, even if you're not a customer.
1:23 am
welcome back. a look at some of the ballot measures decided. recreational use of marijuana on the ballot in five states and approved in four of them including california, massachusetts, nevada and maine as well. >> gun control measures were considered in four states and they were passed in california, washington and maine. nevada was still too close to call. >> and minimum wage increases have been approved in maine, arizona, colorado as well as washington. >> so we've been taking a look at the newspaper headlines to this historic victory overnight and got to say i'm a little disappointed in the editors so far. some of the newspapers. take a look at this from "the new york post." simp simply president trump. >> "the wall street journal,"
1:24 am
also going with president trump. >> very creative, folks. >> on that note we've got "the new york times" with trump triumphs, guess what "the washington post" headline is, trump triumphs. >> a little bit of plagiarism. overseas this one from the uk just goes" disunited states and some of the sense that we're getting from overseas. trump surge as well. >> in spain, they went a little more bold. >> our coverage continues.

...one 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 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 mybreo.com.

donald trump delivering his victory speech just before 3:00 a.m. eastern time. >> the president-elect struck a conciliatory note. here's some highlights. >> i know you've been here a long time and it's been a long night and it's been a long campaign. several states are too close to call, so we're not going to have anything more to say tonight. ♪ >> sorry to keep you waiting. complicated business. 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. and we owe her a major debt of
1:28 am
gratitude for her service to our country. now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. to come together as one united people. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans. 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. i want to tell the world community that while we will always put america's interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone. it's been what they call a
1:29 am
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. thank you, thank you very much. >> so that moment coming just about 3:00 this morning here in new york. it took him a while, he said. >> to kind of collect everything. he said a very important business, complicated business going on. many anxious to see what it mean foss are the republicans. campaigning on different things than the same premise that donald trump was campaigning on so they'll now have to work together in a party that's been divided. >> many senators that won tonight who did not vote for donald trump. it will be interesting to see how it plays out. more election coverage is just ahead right here on abc. >> stay with us.
1:30 am
making news in america this morning, the country has spoken. donald trump is projected to be the next president of the united states. >> working together we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the american dream. >> the ultimate washington outsider with an unconventional campaign. >> 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. >> it's a stunning upset in american politics with hillary clinton conceding a short time ago but refusing to speak. >> several states are too close to call. so we're not going to have
1:31 am
anything more to say tonight. >> this close contest revealing a country deeply divided. the late breaking developments on this epic election. good morning to you all. donald trump is heading to the white house after a close but clear victory over hillary clinton. >> defying all the polls and all of the pundits, trump declaring victory roughly around 3:00 this morning in new york city surrounded by his family as plenty of supporters as well and takes his place in history as the only one with no political or histomilitary history. >> florida, ohio and pennsylvania he got and he said he was ready to take on the difficult task of united and divided country. >> hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period
1:32 am
of time. and 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. to all 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. to 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 guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.
1:33 am
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. >> well, in addition to a call from hillary clinton trump also heard from house speaker paul ryan who said he's eager to work hand in hand with trump. and the russian president vladimir putin sent trump a telegram hoping to mend relations between the u.s. and russia. hillary clinton has not left her manhattan hotel room yet. she's now expected to deliver her concession speech a little later this morning and after realizing there would be no victory party, she sent her campaign chairman to address her supporters. >> that was over at the javits center. they had gathered under the glass ceiling at the convention center hoping to see her
1:34 am
symbolically dwipdzle. >> cecilia vega is there. good morning. >> reporter: kendis and diane, what a scene inside the javits center arena here in manhattan. take a look behind me. this is what's left of what was supposed to be hillary clinton's big election night party. certainly what she was hoping to be her victory party. i've been covering her for more than a year and a half. hillary clinton is a notoriously superstitious person and coming into this night we were told that she had two speeches ready to go. one for either outcome. she never gave either one of those speeches as you guys know, in fact, the only glimmer of information that we got from inside her campaign was when her chairman john podesta showed up on the stage very late in the night and gave this announcement. take a listen. >> it's been a long night and it's been a long campaign. but i can say we can wait a little longer, can't we.
1:35 am
there's still coming 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. so, listen, listen to me, everybody should head home, you should get some sleep. we'll have more to say tomorrow. >> reporter: so that's john podesta there saying we will not concede a defiant hillary clinton campaign and then minutes later, donald trump essentially comes out on stage and says, wait a second, i got a concession phone call from hillary clinton congratulating us on our big win. that is what happened in here tonight. that is why this crowd, these thousands of people in here were in complete shock. there were staffers who were crying, there were supporters who were left early. they were just completely blindsided by what happened here and now the big question, what
1:36 am
happens to hillary clinton after 25 plus years in the public eye? the former senator, the former first lady and now on her resume, the former presidential candidate who has lost this two times waking up going what do i do now? >> no doubt a lot of people are asking that question, cecilia, thank you for that report and want to show you our map. you can see right there, one of the states that was not decided tuesday night, michigan, we're still trying to tally the votes on that one. >> so no winner declared there overnight. but it's not the first time vote counting in michigan has gone into the early morning hours and david kerley is in detroit for us with more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, diane and kendis. it is going to be a long morning here in detroit. the votes still have not been completely tallied. in fact, about 10% of the votes still out here in the middle of the moorpg and folks at the county clerk's office told me in wayne county in detroit they didn't finish until 5:00 a.m.
1:37 am
the last cycle. it may be even longer this time to get all these votes counted but currently donald trump in a surprise ahead in this traditionally blue state and the exit polls very interesting things that have happened in this election day. in the rule areas, 27% of the vote comes from those rural areas. up from 19% from the last cycle. so you're seeing an 8% increase in rural voters who came out. and it appears that hillary clinton according to the exit polls is underperforming among african-americans in the detroit area. diane and kendis. >> all right, that's david kerley for us from detroit. thank you. just ahead we heard donald trump say it's time to heal this divided nation so how does he do it? >> some insight this morning from one expert and how people in russia, in russia are reacting to trump's victory this morning. we'll take to you moscow and this viewing party that they
1:38 am
1:39 am
1:40 am
now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. we have to get together. to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as one united people. welcome back. donald trump calling for the nation to unite after the divisive campaign against hillary clinton. trump now the president-elect of the united states. >> he'll be sworn in as the nation's 45th president on january 20th. earlier republican analyst ana navarro, outspoken critic of trump spoke to abc's dan harris about the days ahead. >> you are a republican strategist who very clearly came out and said you would not vote
1:41 am
for donald trump. in fact, you voted for hillary clinton. >> i did. >> your reaction to this bombshell tonight? >> well, look, i don't like donald trump as a person. i think he inserted division and hostility into this debate. that being said, i am an american first. at this point his success is all of our success. it is our country's success. so i wish him success. i think he struck a good note tonight. i hope that he can continue to do that. i think he needs to recognize we are an absolutely divided country and i would be saying the exact same thing had hillary clinton won. we need to come together as a country. what we saw tonight is that we all two americas. we are a white america and we are a nonwhite america. we are an educated america and we are the noneducated america and we have got to bridge that gap and unite as a country and move forward and i think that what he does from now on will be
1:42 am
a very important precedent on setting tone. also, yes, he will have a republican house and he will have a republican senate. but, remember, not every republican senator or house member voted for him or supports him. some have stood up to him and withdrawn their support and if he exceeds himself i can assure you that a lindsey graham, a john mccain will step away from him. i can assure you that paul ryan has got the moral compass to stand up to him. the same way he would have stood up to hillary clinton had she exceeded her powers, so i think that while, yes, he's going to have a republican house and probably a republican senate, it is not going to be a rubber stamp and he needs to figure out how to compromise. he should call them in and he should get advice. he's never governed before. he doesn't know government. they do. >> so many americans have invested their hopes and dreams in donald trump and he has promised very specific policy measures including building a wall and getting the mexican government to pay for it,
1:43 am
banning muslims and a secret plan to defeat isis. can he do any of this even though he has a republican congress? >> well, he can't do it without the help of the congress. as you know we are coequal parts of government and have checks and balances and if he wants to build a wall which requires a huge amount of appropriations he needs to get an approval by congress. i don't think he can do it. one thing he can do and should do immediately upon getting elected is he should revert back the policy on cuba because a group he does have tonight are the cuban-americans who voted for him at higher numbers than any other hispanic group, probably delivered florida for him, helped him get that state, helped him get the presidency and he had promised them over and over again he would revert back to the previous policy before obama changed it last march. that he can do through an si
1:44 am
executive order. >> the words there from ana navarro and dan harris. one ambassador's shocking reaction to trump's election. and what former president george w. bush wrote on his ballot. our coverage continues. stay with us.

"she's single." ...and high levels of humiliation in her daughter. in just 7 days, your joint comfort can be your kid's discomfort. osteo bi-flex. made to move. got new video from oakland, california, where dozens of people apparently protesting the election results set fires on the streets there. >> no immediate reports of any arrests but one protester was hit by a car while blocking traffic. and the race for the white house wasn't the only republican victory last night. >> in fact republicans won pretty much across the board including a majority of governors' races and held on to the control of the senate. you can see there it's pretty narrow thanks in part to their upset victory in the wisconsin senate race. key race in new hampshire remains too close to call. >> the gop also retained the majority of seats in the house, the democrats picked up only a
1:47 am
modest number there and reaction to trump's election is mixed around the word. the kremlin celebrated with russian president vladimir putin sending trump his congratulations. >> moments after he accepted it. elsewhere in europe and asia dismay. alex marquardt reports from moscow. >> reporter: this is a pro-trump watch party here at a pub in the center of moscow and people who soldiered through the night watching the results coming in. big cheers going up as donald trump wins states. many in russia waking up to this news that will be welcome to many russias. the russians overwhelmingly favor her over hillary clinton. who does president vladimir putin want to see in the white house? that's more complicated. we know from people close to the kremlin there is a lot of apprehension about his lack of predictab predictable. of course, no love lott either between secretary of state hillary clinton and president bouto putin. putin tried to seize on the anger and division to sow
1:48 am
instability and chaos and assumed a victory for donald trump would be a convict for for president putin. alex marquardt, abc news, moscow. >> other reaction to tell you about, this one from france's ambassador to the u.s. he tweeted saying, after brexit and this election, anything is now possible. a world is crumbling before our eyes. >> the presidential election in france is next spring and right now polls there have the leader of the conservative national front party doing very well. and maybe now is the time to remember that donald trump had predicted that the election results were, quote, going to be brexit plus, plus, plus. referring to britain's surprising exit from the european union. >> during the campaign he referred to himself as mr. brexit and some british analysts are calling the brexit comparisons spot on. abc's terry moran commented on that. >> it is deja vu, no question bit. the sense of all the polls and all the pundits going in was that britain would never leave the european union. such a radical thing to do and

being told by all their betters, the voters of great britain that the smart play, the smart thing to do was tay in the european union anden mast great wave of the unwashed, britain is a very class-based society and the people who voted brexit were the people who were not in the higher classes for sure and they came out and they socked the establishment right in the face and it does feel like that's what's happening because of donald trump and i just want to take a step back here. this is an astonishing personal triumph. as tom pointed out this was not a campaign by any normal sense. this was a personal endeavor. and one thing struck me while these results were coming in, a quote from his sister mary anne trump berry, a judge on the new york state supreme court. she said i knew better even as a child than to even attempt to compete with donald because he always wins. >> that was abc's terry moran from our coverage earlier. he did win, indeed. up next, the concern on wall

1:51 am
yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. i'm not a customer, but i'm calling about that credit scorecard. give it. sure! it's free for everyone. oh! well that's nice!

1:53 am
the market will open tomorrow are now more than 720 points lower and to put that into perspective that on a point basis would be a larger decline than some of the declines we saw throughout the great recession. would be a worst day for the merkas on a point basis than the day after the markets opened following september 11th attacks and it would put us essentially in line with where we were during the great recession. the s&p 500 right now is pointing down and that's the one that most of our 401(k)s are tied to is down almost 5% in terms of the futures. coming into this wall street was not anticipating this scenario tonight and i'm so much reminded of the brexit because so many traders didn't want to get caught flat-footed. they were reminded of the brexit coming into this and in the brexit for reference our market sold off in the two days after 5% and then it bounced back. but a lot of the market -- a lot of the market analysts this

2:10 am
2:11 am
2:12 am
that picture of the white house at this hour. you can see it is lights out there. i'm sure they turned the lights out a little early once they saw the results were coming in not the way the president wanted. so america is waking up to one of the most stunning american political upsets in history, donald trump winning the white house. >> so how did the political pundits get this race so wrong? joining us now, we got abc's political director rick klein and deputy political director shushannah walshe. and, rick, i'll start with you, how do you explain how wrong the polls were here? >> we all missed the biggest political story of our lifetime. it is not like donald trump wasn't trying to tell us about it. for 18 months he talked about
2:13 am
this movement and it was there, you saw the signs, you saw the and the enthusiasm. you didn't see it registered in the numbers. this is a massive failure of political data, a massive failure i think of the country and its media to understand what was going on in the nation because this was just a fundamental shift, a real redirection of the fundamentals of our society that were all engineered by this man who wanted to make america great again. >> and what does this do for polls going forward? >> i think there's going to have to be a rethinking of the industry and soul searching. and how you can be this far off. >> it seems to be a rethinking of how we do politics. one thing we talk about she had a great ground game. she outspent him on ads. she had all these people everywhere, all these backers, all these supporters. it kind of shook up everything that we know about politics. >> absolutely. organization, ground game, 3-1 spending on advertising on television. none of it mattered. all that mattered was a movement as donald trump was talking about personality and
2:14 am
these american workers who are struggling and felt that donald trump offered change and a helping hand. >> and, rick, i'm curious in terms of strategy, you know, we after this is all over we saw all these supporters come out for hillary clinton tonight to celebrate with her if she won or be there for her if she lost and then you hear her campaign come out and say, too close, we're not going to speak and pretty short think thereafter she concedes and now she's speaking tomorrow morning. why the timing of all of that? >> they were looking at the numbers in realtime. i think there was a time where they thought they had a chance to challenge some of these rust belt states and if they could win there, they didn't want her out before that. i think this was so shocking and didn't want to put her out without a fully written speech and she gets that tomorrow instead of tonight. >> last night -- two nights ago they were popping champagne bottles. massive shock not just the country but their campaign, it's -- >> both campaigns. i honestly don't believe the trump campaign thought they'd win. that's what makes this so
2:15 am
jarring. >> i don't think his supporters thought he would win. only donald trump knew. >> at least not this way. as we look back there and you see the map it's a lot of red where we expected some blue to be. i mean, where does this country go from here? i mean, he had a conciliatory speech last night where it sounded like he'd bring everybody together but he had one also at the convention then heard a lot of things after that. where do we go next? >> he has a hard job ahead of him and needs to bring this country together and unite -- what we found out was two americas this evening. we may have been clueless to it before, but it's right there in blue and red in front of us that his job is a tough one and -- but he needs to unite the country. >> all right, well, that was the message he certainly reflected today in his speech. we'll see what happens going forward and tomorrow we'll or later this morning i should say we look forward to hearing from hillary clinton. >> he saw this coming. none of us did. can we ask him what the lottery numbers are for tomorrow might?
2:16 am
>> rick klein, shushannah walshe, thank you. the other big races in the house and not. not just about the white house. >> big night politically and the states that have now legalized marijuana. stay with us.

>> this close contest revealing a country deeply divided. the late breaking developments on this epic election. good morning to you all. donald trump is heading to the white house after a close but clear victory over hillary clinton. >> defying all the polls and all of the pundits, trump declaring victory roughly around 3:00 this morning in new york city surrounded, as you see there, by his family as plenty of supporters as well and takes his place in history as the only person elected as president with no political or military history. >> he surpassed the 270 needed. >> and won key battleground state like florida, ohio and pennsylvania. oversnide trump said he was ready to take on the difficult task of united and divided country. >> hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period
2:32 am
of time. and 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. to all 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. to 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 guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.
2:33 am
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. >> well, in addition to a call from hillary clinton trump also heard from house speaker paul ryan who said he's eager to work hand in hand with trump. and the russian president vladimir putin sent trump a telegram hoping to mend relations between the u.s. and russia. and hillary clinton has not left her manhattan hotel room yet. she's now expected to deliver her concession speech a little bit later this morning, and after realizing there would be no victory party, she sent her campaign chairman to address her supporters. >> that was over at the javits center. they had gathered under the glass ceiling at the convention center in new york hoping to see her symbolically
2:34 am
shatter it. >> but as her path to victory dwindled to nothing that convention center quickly emptied out. abc's cecilia vega is there. cecilia, good morning. >> reporter: kendis and diane, what a scene inside the javits center arena here in manhattan. take a look behind me. this is what's left of what was supposed to be hillary clinton's big election night party. certainly what she was hoping to be her victory party. i've been covering her for more than a year and a half. hillary clinton is a notoriously superstitious person and coming into this night we were told that she had two speeches ready to go. one for either outcome. she never gave either one of those speeches as you guys know, in fact, the only glimmer of information that we got from inside her campaign was when her chairman john podesta showed up on the stage very late in the night and gave this announcement. take a listen. >> and it's been a long night, and it's been a long campaign. but i can say we can wait a
2:35 am
little longer, can't we? 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. so, listen, listen to me, everybody should head home, you should get some sleep. we'll have more to say tomorrow. >> reporter: so that's john podesta there saying we will not concede a defiant hillary clinton campaign, and then minutes later, donald trump essentially comes out on stage and says, wait a second, i got a concession phone call from hillary clinton congratulating us on our big win. that is what happened in here tonight. that is why this crowd, these thousands of people in here were in complete shock. there were staffers who were crying, there were supporters who were left early. they were just completely blindsided by what happened here and now the big question, what
2:36 am
happens to hillary clinton after 25 plus years in the public eye? the former senator, the former first lady and now on her resume, the former presidential candidate who has lost this two times will be waking up in the morning going, what do i do now? kendis and diane. >> no doubt a lot of people are asking that question, cecilia, thank you for that report and want to show you our map. you can see right there, one of the states that was not decided tuesday night, michigan, we're still trying to tally the votes on that one. >> that's right, so no winner declared there overnight. but it's not the first time vote counting in michigan has gone into the early morning hours. abc's david kerley is in detroit for us with more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, diane and kendis. it is going to be a long morning here in detroit. the votes still have not been completely tallied. in fact, about 10% of the votes still out here in the middle of the morning and the folks at the county clerk's office told me in wayne county here in detroit they didn't finish until 5:00
2:37 am
a.m. the last cycle. it may be even longer this time to get all these votes counted but currently donald trump in a surprise ahead in this traditionally blue state and the exit polls show some very interesting things that have happened in this election day. in the rural areas, 27% of the vote comes from those rural areas. that's up from 19% from the last cycle. so you're seeing an 8% increase in rural voters who came out. and it appears that hillary clinton according to the exit polls is underperforming among african-americans in the detroit area. diane and kendis. >> all right, that's david kerley for us from detroit. david, thank you. just ahead we heard donald trump say it's time to heal this divided nation, so how does he do it? >> yes, some insight this
2:38 am
2:39 am
2:40 am
now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. we have to get together. to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as one united people. welcome back. and donald trump calling for the nation to unite after the divisive campaign against hillary clinton. trump now the president-elect of the united states. >> he'll be sworn in as the nation's 45th president on january 20th. earlier republican analyst ana navarro, an outspoken critic of trump during the campaign, spoke to abc's dan harris about the days ahead. >> you are a republican
2:41 am
strategist who very clearly and vocally came out and said you would not vote for donald trump. in fact, you voted for hillary clinton. >> i did. >> your reaction to this bombshell tonight? >> well, look, i don't like donald trump as a person. i think he inserted division and hostility into this debate. that being said, i am an american first. at this point his success is all of our success. it is our country's success. so i wish him success. i think he struck a good note tonight. i hope that he can continue to do that. i think he needs to recognize we are an absolutely divided country and i would be saying the exact same thing had hillary clinton won. we need to come together as a country. what we saw tonight is that we all two americas. we are a white america and we are a nonwhite america. we are an educated america and we are the noneducated america and we have got to bridge that gap. we have got to unite as a country and move forward and i think that what he does
2:42 am
from now on will be a very important precedent on setting tone. also, yes, he will have a republican house and he will have a republican senate. but, remember, not every republican senator or house member voted for him or supports him. some have stood up to him and some have withdrawn their support, and if he exceeds himself, i can assure you that a lindsey graham, a john mccain will step away from him. i can assure you that paul ryan has got the moral compass to stand up to him the same way he would have stood up to hillary clinton had she exceeded her powers, so i think that while, yes, he's going to have a republican house and probably a republican senate, it is not going to be a rubber stamp and he needs to figure out how to compromise. he should call them in and he should get advice. he's never governed before. he doesn't know government. they do. >> so many americans have invested their hopes and dreams in donald trump and he has promised very specific policy measures including building a wall and getting the mexican government to pay for it,
2:43 am
banning muslims although he dialed that back and talked about extreme vetting and a secret plan to defeat isis. can he actually do any of this even though he has a republican congress? >> well, he can't do it without the help of the congress. as you know, we are coequal parts of government and have checks and balances so if he wants to build a wall which requires a huge amount of appropriations, he needs to get an approval by congress. i don't think he can do it. i will tell you one thing he can do and he should do immediately upon getting elected is he should revert back the policy on cuba because a group that he does owe tonight are the cuban-americans who voted for him at higher numbers than any other hispanic group, probably delivered florida for him, helped him get that state, helped him get the presidency and he had promised them over and over again he would revert back to the previous policy before obama changed it last march. that he can do through an
2:44 am
executive order. >> the words there from ana navarro and dan harris. a little bit earlier this morning. when we come back, one ambassador's shocking reaction to trump's election. and what former president george w. bush wrote on his ballot. our coverage continues. stay with us.
2:45 am
i'm bushed! i've been on my feel alyea me too. excuse me...coming through! ride the gel wave of comfort with dr. scholls massaging gel insoles. they're proven to give you comfort. which helps you feel more energized ...all day long. i want what he has. life can be messy... has. but with crayola color wonder... it doesn't have to be. don't you wish life could be this mess-free? color wonder. find it in the crayola aisle. sets each sold separately. feel free to be yourself all day.... just switch from denture paste to sea-bond denture adhesive seals. holds stronger than the leading paste all day... without the ooze. feel secure. be yourself. with stronger, clean sea-bond.
2:46 am
she's noticing a real difference in her joint comfort... "she's single." ...and high levels of humiliation in her daughter. in just 7 days, your joint comfort can be your kid's discomfort. osteo bi-flex. made to move. got got some new video right now from oakland, california, where dozens of people apparently protesting the election results set fires on the streets there. >> no immediate reports of any arrests but one protester was reportedly hit by a car while blocking traffic. and the race for the white house wasn't the only republican victory last night. >> in fact, republicans won pretty much across the board including a majority of governors' races and they also held on to the control of the senate. you can see there it's pretty narrow thanks in part though to their upset victory in the wisconsin senate race. key race in new hampshire remains too close to call. >> and the gop also retained the majority of seats in the house, the democrats picked up only a
2:47 am
modest number there and reaction to trump's election is mixed around the word. the kremlin celebrated with russian president vladimir putin sending trump his congratulations. >> yeah, moments after he accepted it. but elsewhere in europe and asia there is dismay this morning. abc's alex marquardt reports from moscow. >> reporter: this is a pro-trump watch party here at a pub in the center of moscow and people who soldiered through the night watching the results coming in. big cheers going up as donald trump wins states. many in russia waking up to this news, this dramatic news that will be welcome to many russias. polls show the russians overwhelmingly favor her over hillary clinton. the big at the, of course, who does president vladimir putin want to see in the white house? and that's a little bit more complicated. we know from people close to the kremlin there is a lot of apprehension about trump's lack of predictability, his lack of experience. of course, we know there's no
2:48 am
love lost either between secretary of state hillary clinton and president putin. putin tried to seize on the anger and division to sow instability and chaos and assumed a victory for donald trump would be a victory for president putin. alex marquardt, abc news, moscow. >> other reaction to tell you about, this one from france's ambassador to the u.s. he tweeted saying, after brexit and this election, anything is now possible. a world is crumbling before our eyes. >> the presidential election in france is next spring and right now polls there have the leader of the conservative national front party doing very well. and maybe now is the time to remember that donald trump had predicted that the election results were, quote, going to be brexit plus, plus, plus referring to britain's surprising exit from the european union. >> during the campaign trump referred to himself as mr. brexit and some british analysts are calling the brexit comparisons spot on. abc's terry moran commented on that. >> it is deja vu, no question about it. the sense of all the polls and all the pundits going in was that britain would never leave the european union. such a radical thing to do and
2:49 am
they were being told by all their betters, the voters of great britain, that the smart play, the smart thing to do was stay in the european union and en masse the great wave of the unwashed, britain is a very class-based society and the people who voted brexit were the people who were not in the higher classes for sure and they came out and they socked the establishment right in the face and it does feel like that's what's happening because of donald trump, and i just want to take a step back here. this is an astonishing personal triumph. as tom just pointed out, this was not a campaign by any normal sense. this was a personal endeavor, and one thing struck me while these results were coming in, a quote from his sister, maryanne trump barry, who is a judge on the new york state supreme court, she said, i knew better even as a child than to even attempt to compete with donald because he always wins. >> that was abc's terry moran from our coverage earlier. and he did win, indeed.
2:50 am
up next, the concern on wall street this morning. >> we're going to take a look at the trump phenomenon and the movement that got trump to the white house. do stay with us. he energy to be the rowdiest fan. and joseph, the ability to see monsters. when you choose walgreens, you choose to make a difference... like how every vitamin and flu shot you get at walgreens helps give life-changing vitamins and vaccines... to children in need. so, really... happy thanks for giving! walgreens. at the corner of happy and healthy. as after a dvt blood clot,ital i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again.
2:51 am
yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. i'm not a customer, but i'm calling about that credit scorecard. give it. sure! it's free for everyone. oh! well that's nice!
2:52 am
and checking your score won't hurt your credit. oh! i'm so proud of you. well thank you. free at at discover.com/creditscorecard, even if you're not a customer. that picture tells the story of the night from the that picture tells the story of the night from the democratic perspective. hillary clinton supporters just unable to hold back the tears. clinton called trump around 2:30 in the morning in new york to concede and is expected to make a statement this morning. and the outcome is about to affect your money. stock markets set to open much lower this morning. >> many investors are moving their money to safer investments. abc's rebecca jarvis with more. >> well, it's been a wild night as far as the stock markets are concerned around the globe right now. we're seeing a sell-off. you have it in japan, you have it in china and then as
2:53 am
far as our markets are concerned, the dow futures, which indicate essentially where the market will open tomorrow are now more than 720 points lower and to put that into perspective, that on a point basis would be a larger decline than some of the declines we saw throughout the great recession. would be a worst day for the markets on a point basis than the day after the markets opened following september 11th attacks, and it would put us essentially in line with where we were during the great recession. the s&p 500 right now is pointing down and that's the one that most of our 401(k)s are tied to is down almost 5% in terms of the futures. coming into this wall street was not anticipating this scenario tonight and i'm so much reminded of the brexit because so many traders didn't want to get caught flat-footed. they were reminded of the brexit coming into this and in the brexit for reference our market sold off in the two days after 5% and then it bounced back. but a lot of the market -- a lot of the market analysts this
2:54 am
round are saying it's a different ball game. >> and former president george w. bush did not vote either. for clinton or trump. a spokesman says mr. bush chose none of the above on his ballot. that's despite earlier reports from rush limbaugh mr. bush had voted for clinton. >> we did hear from a number of big name republicans before the vote saying that they would not vote for him but apparently it didn't matter. >> it did not matter at all. see how they play along. more election coverage just ahead.
