we are back on this saturday morning, november 26th, 2016. as we follow the overnight breaking news of fidel castro's death. many cuban-americans taking to the streets overnight in miami to celebrate. that is, of course, one of the headlines today. the former cuban leader dead at the age of 90. the news announced on cuban tv by his brother, president raul castro. as we saw, a lot reaction on the streets of little havana in miami. we will have more on that in a few minutes. a thanksgiving weekend of gratitude for a california family. sherri papini was found chained along a highway three weeks
after being abducted. and the presidential vote now set for a recount in at least one state. former green party candidate jill stein filing that with the election commission in wisconsin. stein's pushing for the same thing in the swing states of michigan and pennsylvania. her goal isn't to overturn the results, but establish voter integrity. let's go back to reaction in miami where people celebrated into the night after learning of fidel castro's death. nbc's kerry sanders is there with more. good morning, kerry. >> reporter: good morning. we have a little bit of a sun shower. people have gotten under the overhang. you can see folks gathered out here. she is wearing a shirt that says "cuba." there is anticipation and a lot of people waiting and in some cases almost a lifetime to watch fidel castro die. now it seems odd. why would you want a head of state to die? you have to understand the dire of the cuban people.
you look at eighth street in little havana. filled with people celebrating. because they were exiled from their country. when he came to power, he took not only power, but he nationalized businesses. he took property. many people were imprisoned. some were tortured. some family members were shot. those that left got out and said that they would return to cuba when fidel castro died. of course, they did not anticipate raul castro taking over the position he has right now as the president of cuba. i was recently in cuba. i went by the small town where fidel castro was born. when you see the humble beginnings from where he came, little home there. an old car that's underneath the house. there are some thatched cottages nearby where he started the agriculture cooperative. that is part of his revolution in the country. when you see that, you can understand why leaders around
the world respected that this man who came from such humble beginnings was able to go to the sierra mountains and in the mountains, cement a revolution that took over control of the island of cuba which is from key west to havana, only 90 miles away. the celebrations will continue. the police have closed the streets and they expect a much larger crowd as the day proceeds. last night, it was filled. back to you. >> kerry, thank you. time for another check of the weather with dylan. >> announcer: "today's" weather is sponsored by american express. founding partner of small business saturday. shop small today. >> good morning. we are taking a little more detailed look at the storm system that is making its way n onshore. heavy rain in seattle. the mountains will have the bad

>> good morning. welcome back to "today" on saturday morning. i'm sheinelle jones with hallie jackson in for craig and dylan dreyer. >> we begin with the breaking news. the death of fidel castro. the dictator hadn't been seen the last few years. he died at the age of 90 last night. we have nbc's andrea mitchell with a look back at his life. >> reporter: he was commander or just fidel to his followers. to his enemies, a feared dictator. one of the world's last communists. the firebrand started life simply. illegitimate son of a land owner. he graduated with a law degree and doctorate. tried running for the national assembly in 1952 until batista seized power. and in 1953, castro led a group over the barracks and failed.
castro ended up in jail for two years until amnesty and he went into exile. in mexico, he regrouped with his brother raul and ernesto. the three led a force back to cuba in 1956 waging guerlla war in 1959. at first the young leader promised democracy. telling the u.s. he was not a communist. "meet the press" in april of 1959. >> i am not communist. >> reporter: he confiscated the property of the wealthy and silenced newspapers and signed a pact with the soviet union. in 1961, president kennedy ordered the cia to invade cuba at the bay of pigs using a force
of anti-castro exiles. the results debacle helped castro consolidate power. by then, declared socialist, he improved health care and literacy. also accepted soviet missiles bringing the super powers to the brink of nuclear war. >> requiring a full retaliatory response upon the soviet union. >> reporter: until kennedy's hard line got the russians to pull back. for 25 years, moscow helped castro throughout latin america. but with the end of the soviet union, cuba's economy imploded. on makeshift boats, thousands fled the regime. >> the legacy is a complicated one. there's no for getting how many cubans left the island under duress. >> reporter: in the 1990s, the aging ruler courted u.s. business men and american
tourists. he showed a new tolerance for e religion welcoming john paul ii. and most travel to the island was cut off. castro arrested hundreds. in the final years, the economy was propped up by another ally. venezuela. in the summer of 2006 after going through intestinal surgery, castro turned power over to raul. he stepped down two years later. he wrote columns and emerging publicly for the pope's visit in 2012. and for vladimir putin and president xi jinping in 2014. to the end, castro insisted the revolution would out live him. >> if i die tomorrow morning, there will be no problem here of any sort because the remains a nucleus of leaders without a
doubt have great authority among the people. >> reporter: still his real legacy may be holding power for half a century. longer than any other modern leader. andrea mitchell, nbc news, washington. >> cuba will hold nine days of national mourning with his funeral are december 4th. >> what happens with the two counci countries up to donald trump. he has been critical of the thawing relationship for months. we have kristen welker with more on that for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so far no reaction from the president-elect. he is on a working vacation here in bapalm beach. i expected we will get a response by the end of the day. the question is what does this mean for relations between the united states and cuba? as a candidate, donald trump vowed to reverse the actions that president obama took to normalize relation was the
countries. lifting restrictions on imports for example. listen to candidate trump back in september. >> but all of the concessions that barack obama has granted the castro regime were done through executive order which means the next president can reverse them and that i will do unless the castro regime meets our demands. those demands will include religious and political freedom for the cuban people and the freeing of political prisoners. >> reporter: as you heard mr. trump say the actions that president obama took are executive action. that means a new incoming president can reverse them essentially with a stroke of a pen. the reality to it is trade has opened up between the two countries. flights resumed. it is hard to unwind all of that. this comes against the back drop of president-elect trump trying
to pick a secretary of state who will be deeply involved with u.s. and cuban relations. the top two contenders is hard liner rudy giuliani and former antagonist and moderate republican mitt romney. very in line with mr. trump with cuba. sheinelle. >> kristen, thank you. turning to other news. black friday is now over. a lot of the sales will go on throughout the weekend. tens of thousands woke up early to be the first to grab the big ticket items at a reduced price. how did they make out? nbc's jacob rascon is in texas' biggest mall in houston. good morning, jab objecob. >> reporter: good morning. we are in the houston mall. most of the retailers were in the middle of black friday weekend. some 137 million americans expected to hit the stores. that's more people than voted in the general election. overall, through the holiday, expected the sales to be up.
