tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  November 11, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
>> reporter: so many emotions out here, but one man who is leaving friday prayers told me that his imam expressed faith in a higher prayer, and many of the people out here, erin, that i spoke with expressed faith in the good people of this country. erin. >> thank you so much. thank you all so much for joining us. anderson is next. >> thank you very much for joining us as we end a week ha has changed american political history. president-elect trump is getting started, announcing his transition team and sitting down for first interviews as president-elect. that title is not sitting well with many people around the country who for the third straight night have taken to the streets. you see them there, miami, atlanta. you are looking at aerial shots in atlanta on the right-hand side of your screen. we will keep our eyes throughout the next two hours on streets in a number of cities. as we do, a center poofs donald trump's campaign of course was repealing obamacare. now in two interviews today he says he is open to keeping parts
5:01 pm
of it. take a look at a clip from leslie stall which will air on sunday. >> let me ask you about obamacare, which you say you're going to repeal and replace. when you replace it, are you going to make sure that people with preconditions are still covered? >> yes, because it happens to be one of the strongest assets. >> you're going the keep that? >> also with the children living with their parents for an extended period. >> you're going to keep that. >> we're going to very much try to keep it in. it costs but it is something we're going to try to keep. >> and there will be a period if you repeal it before you replace it when millions of people could lose -- >> no, we're going to do it simultaneously. it will be just fine. that's what i do. i do a good job. i know how to do this stuff. we're going to repeal it and replace it. we're not going to have like a two-day period and not going to have a two-year period where there's nothing. it will be repealed and replaced, and we'll know. it will be great healthcare for
5:02 pm
much less money. >> hillary called you. tell us about that phone call. >> so hillary called, and it was a lovely call and it was a tough call for her. i mean i can imagine. tougher for her than it would have been more me and for me it would have been very difficult. she couldn't have been nicer. she just said, congratulations, donald. well done. and i said, i want to thank you very much. you were a great competitor. she's very strong and very smart. >> what about bill clinton, did you talk to him? >> he did, he called the next day. >> really. what did he say? >> he actually called last night. >> what did he say? >> and he couldn't have been more gracious. he said it was an amazing run, one of the most amazing he's ever seen. >> he said that? >> he was very, very -- really very nice. >> you know, you said that you might call president obama for advice. would you think of calling
5:03 pm
president clinton for advice? >> well, he's a very talented guy, both of them. i mean it is a very talented family. certainly i would certainly think about that. >> in a moment we will hear from "wall street journal" reporter who interviewed trump today and asked if he regrets any of the rhetoric he used in the campaign. first to washington and jim acosta on obamacare care news. there was a shake up of the transition team today. who is in and who is out? >> well, it is interesting. the vice president elect mike pence now will be in charge of donald trump's transition team. he is the man in charge of that effort right now, besides donald trump. and he replaces new jersey governor chris christie who now -- he is not out but becomes vice-chairman of the transition team along with mike flynn, the lieutenant general who is out there on the stump for donald trump quite a bit, as well as newt gingrich, alabama senator jeff sessions, and ben carson and a few other names. so, you know, it is an interesting development in that
5:04 pm
basically what happened was there was some infighting going on inside the transition team. new jersey governor chris christie was running into interference from inside the team who did not want to see never-trumpers coming on board, those anti-trump republicans. christie did want to open that up to other republicans out there who opposed donald trump because absolutely they're going to have to bring a lot of republicans to fill this government. but, anderson, also the bridgegate scandal was a problem for chris christie. we talked to a number of republican sources who said it was going to be a bridge too far, if you pardon the expression, for christie to continue in this prominent role given the fact that that scandal is continuing. >> in terms of who is going to become chief of staff, who are the leading candidates right now? what is your sense? it seems donald trump prizes loyalty above almost everything, and i wonder how much loyalty of potential candidates is a factor in who gets what job?
5:05 pm
>> reporter: it absolutely matters, and loyalty means a lot to donald trump. keep in mind, reince priebus, the rnc chair who is one of the two frontrunners along with stephen bannon, the former head of brightbart who was the campaign chairman, you know, reince priebus had a choice early on in the campaign, anderson. he really could have severed ties with this candidate when, you know, we all remember the dark times that donald trump went through during that race, and he didn't. he stuck by donald trump and provided from all accounts from talking to a number of different sources good counsel. he was part of the effort to have donald trump stop tweeting so much during the later stages of the campaign. he is also popular in that inner circle that includes his family members like ivanka trump and jared kushner, his son-in-law, who apparently will be an influential part of the administration. don't forget stephen bannon may also be an influential part if not the chief of staff. donald trump when he brought steve bannon on board, it
5:06 pm
brought a lot of fears to the hearts of a lot of republicans around the country, but steve bannon with his pugnacious kind of confrontational style convinced donald trump to do things a more conventional operative might not have done. he was part of the reason donald trump went to mexico and met with the mexican president over the summer. so it is going to be interesting to see which of these two candidates get the job. it is sort of the considerations that he had between mike pence and newt gingrich for his running mate. in the end he went with his head in picking mike pence over newt gingrich. he might do the same here. >> jim acosta, thanks very much. he also spoke about keeping parts of obamacare in the "wall street journal." that interview included a question about whether he thought his rhetoric went too far on the campaign trail. trump responded, no, i won. joining me now is wall street journals special writer monica langley who conducted that interview. let's talk about obamacare. president obama says -- excuse
5:07 pm
me, president-elect trump says he is open to possibly amending parts of obamacare. >> right. you know the entire campaign, and especially the last two weeks when the government disclosed that the premiums were going to go up an average of 20 to 100% in some states, he said, we're going to repeal and replace obamacare, drove that point home. so today when i was in his office this morning, i asked him about his meeting with president obama yesterday. well, the president apparently is a really good salesman, paul. donald trump is a great deal maker, the president sold him. pleaded with him, please do not repeal obamacare. trump said to me, i'm going to take those suggestions and out of respect i'm going to listen to him. i said what in particular about obamacare would he keep, and it is the provisions about the preexisting conditions, not letting insurers drop people over those, and letting the children stay on their parents' policies longer. >> which he talked during the primaries about keeping the
5:08 pm
preexisting conditions. >> right. >> but i don't think he talked about the -- >> exactly. >> -- older kids. >> and that was a point that the president made with him in the oval office yesterday. so it is clear he's rethinking his position. you know, we always wondered would he start compromising a little bit, like a deal maker once he became president. i think this is the first indication that indeed he will. >> it also raises questions about there are others who said about donald trump, is that he's very influenced by the last person who left the room. so it is interesting he said this just after having president obama kind of appeal on those two fronts. we will see whether it actually stands the test of time. you also asked about the protests we've been seen. now we're watching a third protest tonight in atlanta. >> exactly. here is what he said. he said his rhetoric would be changing as it changed the the moment he came out and, you know, spoke to the country after the results came in. and he said, i've been making much more tempered remarks, and he said, i want a country that loves each other. i said really? okay. so that's great. and what are you going to do?
5:09 pm
do you wish now you hadn't done that, all of that divisive, negative campaigning? no, i won. i'm here. >> right. certainly worked on the campaign trail. >> exactly. >> and he didn't think he went too far at all on the trail? >> no way. no. he goes, no, i won, i'm here. >> did he mention whether he plans to prosecute hillary clinton? >> i asked him that. he kind of deflected it. he said, i haven't really given it much thought. what is more important right now are jobs, healthcare, infrastructure. you know, he named a whole list of what are his top priorities. financial deregulation, tax reform, exactly. >> you interviewed donald trump -- you have done a number of crucial interviews with donald trump. we talked about them a lot on this broadcast. i remember you wrote about how he jots down things on a piece of paper for a speech. i found his leadership style which you had written about fascinating. do you notice a change in him? a lot of people talk about obviously running for president is one thing, but to actually get elected, suddenly the weight
5:10 pm
of the office sometimes comes down square on to you. did you notice any difference in donald trump? >> not much. >> no? >> no. here is the thing. i was in his office today, same way as he's been from a year and a half. you know who was there? rudy giuliani wasn't with him at the very beginning, but you know who was there? don junior, his son. you know, his press secretary has been with him from the beginning. he's still a lot -- a one-man show. mike pence did call in. he is going to be an integral part of this administration because donald told me he's going to do the heavy lifting with congress and he has a big agenda he wants to put through, and he said he's going to give him lots of policy issues including healthcare because indiana has a good healthcare law. >> there are all of those questions. i think there were stories months ago that john kasich had been offered a deal, that if he became vice president he would have unprecedented -- >> no, i don't think that really happened. >> you don't think it really happened? >> no, because you just said loyalty is one of the first things that donald trump looks
5:11 pm
at. he's not loyal. he was never going to be. i don't think it was a real thing. >> all right. monica, stay with us. want to bring in the rest of the panel. joining us democratic strategist jonathan tasin. kristine quin. maggie heyburn who also interviewed trump many times. jeffrey lord. cnn political, lieutenant governor andre bauer. you hear monica's reporting, maggie. there's no precedent for an incoming president to have such, in this case such a complicated business portfolio. there's a lot of moving parts here we don't even know the impact. >> we don't know the impact of and i think he has not figured out exactly what it will look like, to be fair to him and those around him. they did not think he was going to win and so it caught him by surprise. you can see it in terms of the abruptness in which the transition effort, which was something of a back water in
5:12 pm
which christie was running it over the past months, has kicked into high gear. >> there was a transition team going on, but donald trump said, look, i'm not thinking about it. >> i'm superstitious, i don't want to talk about it and think about it. there are well-documented clashes between chris christie and jared kushner, they do not have a good relationship. jared kushner is playing a large role in what is going on with donald trump's burgeoning administration. we don't know the answer to a lot of the questions. he said he would have his children run the business. at other times he said it would be a blind trust. there's so much we don't know. what we do know is that the thing that he said about obamacare, about the piece of obamacare that he likes, that he hadn't said before, is consistent honestly with the populous message he ran on, which was preserving entitlements. generally speaking over the course of his life he has been something of a big government guy. he talks about it in specific terms, but certainly on program attic elements for domestic
5:13 pm
policy it is consistent. there's so much we don't know, including whether it will be just steve bannon or reince priebus. we have no idea who the chief of staff will be. >> and that will be -- that's a major, major decision because those two guys are very, very different, come from different background. >> one other point i want to make. they come from different backgrounds, but donald trump had four different campaign management teams during the course of the campaign. whoever the first chief of staff is may not be the last. >> i want to go to jeffrey. i want to play some of the viewers some of the things donald trump said about obamacare on the campaign trail. let's take a look. >> real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing obamacare. we have a disaster called the big lie, obamacare. obamacare has to be repealed and replaced. i will ask congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace. we have to repeal obamacare, and
5:14 pm
it can be replaced. and, and it can be replaced with something much better for everybody. obamacare has to be replaced. it seems, jeffrey, i'm wondering how much of his supporters are okay with kind of the negotiator donald trump, that once he's now in power, you know, things are a deal. you referenced this of about. it does seem like we've done a number of interviews with people in the last couple of days, some people were even saying, you know, the wall is not necessarily a physical wall and that would be fine with me. that, you know, they believe in donald trump to make the best deal possible. >> exactly. the important thing, i mean ronald reagan was a deal maker. the important thing is the direction you are taking the country when you do the deal. if he were in essence expanding obamacare, there would be a problem. but repeal and replace is exactly what people want. >> or amend. >> or amend, which is not to say that there aren't parts of it, as he is talking about, that
5:15 pm
appeal to a lot of people, conservatives included. but it is the process, the way we've gone about this with obamacare that really has alienated a lot of people, not the mention resulting in all of these price increases. >> we will have more with our panel. we will take a quick break. a lot more to get to. a lot of developments tonight. we also continue to monitor protesting for the third straight night. reaction from a lot of different angles including a conversation with journalist jorge ramos, and a muslim woman who voted with donald trump and why she said shed did that. did that.

5:19 pm
donald trump used his presidential campaign to tout obviously his business experience, and we're keeping an eye on the third straight night of protests against election of donald trump as president. also today in two interviews the president-elect seems to be not changing his position on obamacare but at least sounding like he was open to keeping some parts of it, amending it he talked about as well as possibly repealing and replacing. that notion seems to have come after he spoke with president obama yesterday. back with the panel, start with christine quin. what do you make of him mentionings the idea of amending, particularly the two ideas of preexisting conditions, having those continue to be covered and also keeping people on their parents' insurance longer? >> well, first i want to say, you know, i want to thank the president-elect for his tone on election night. i think he made a very important step forward with the tone he put out. now, you could take the things he said about this as good because they would be good for
5:20 pm
people, and maybe a hope that he really doesn't even want to, you know, rip large -- get rid of obamacare because there was certainly a school of thought in the election that these really weren't his core beliefs. he was saying what he needed to, to get elected. but that's very worrisome to other -- you don't want to be disrespectful of what he said because it is good, but you don't want to buy into it too much because we really don't know who the president-elect is in a policy sense. we don't know that. and what we do know is that the rhetoric of his campaign, whether he meant it to or not, has caused a great deal of fear in this country, and what we've seen on college campuses and other places is hate attacks and hate speech rocketing up since the election. so it is good, but i'm not going to buy too much into it because i'm very worried about the effects in other areas and in obamacare. >> i don't know if you could say rocketing up. there have been a number of
5:21 pm
incidents, graffiti and things like that, but it is not as if there's wholesale bed lamb on the streets. >> but on college campuses, i think where you have seen a spike, which i was speaking to specifically at college campuses. we have seen it at university of pennsylvania, columbia, nyu. >> writing on the walls. >> mostly creating fear. >> by putting signs up saying -- >> i'm not condoning, but i don't want to give a false impression. >> some is subtle, it is not necessarily covered by media, but there's tremendous fear out there. i went to a restaurant in my neighborhood and said my cook's eight-year-old son came to him, he is an undocumented immigrant, crying and saying, daddy, are they going to send you away? am i never going to have you? i think that fear is coursing through america. it is part of the reason you see protests in the streets. people, when you talked about donald trump saying he'll change his rhetoric, you know, it is not just this was campaign rhetoric, you are attacking the other side. it was bigotry, racism, hatred,
5:22 pm
misogyny. >> repeatedly. >> repeatedly. the reason people are out in the streets, and i was out in the streets with people and i commend them for being in the streets, the reason is people are in fear. >> andre, do you think the same people that would be commending it if it was reversed and hillary clinton was elected president and these were anti-hillary clinton people in the streets? >> i say let it go, let it go. >> let it go. if hillary had been elected president i would sit here with the most optimistic attitude, at least until she got in office and made some decisions, and not immediately criticize the guy. let's come together as a country. i think you are seeing the emergence of the next great president. look, he met with the president of the united states. both were humble with one another, both had very good speeches trying to unite this country together. he is trying to unite the people. i have an employee whose insurance company has billed $350 for a boot. he went on amazon, the exact same bood, same company was $59 on amazon. there are problems easy for businesspeople to address.
5:23 pm
he will do that. he knows we need to help people with preexisting conditions. >> i just want to say about the protesters, nobody is better at deconstructing the american left than rush limbaugh. on june 30th of this year, rush said if donald trump wins the presidency these people will be in the streets the next day protesting it. >> and that's fantastic. >> well, the point is here they are, and this was way back in june he said this, and that's because we understand that this is what the american left is all about. >> jeff, i want to say something different, and to andre. when ronald reagan was elected and when the two bushes, george w. bush and orbugeorge bush sen i opposed policies, but there were not mass protests in the street. donald trump is different. >> a threat. >> no, excuse me. the kind of language he used, the racist language, the bigoted language, the misogyny, the attacks on people was way beyond
5:24 pm
any other candidate in office. >> let me ask you, in terms of what you have heard over the last three days from president-elect donald trump, has he said all of the right things? >> let me say -- >> on healthcare -- >> -- first i hope if hillary had won and there were anti-hillary protesters, i would say the same thing. as long as it is nonviolent, they have the right to exercise their first amendment rights, and i applaud people for being active. i again credit the president-elect for setting the right dignified tone on election night. he could have poured gasoline on something, he didn't. i think the two things he said about obamacare are good from my perspective, but i don't want to -- >> but he doesn't know -- he doesn't understand obamacare. >> i can't buy too much into it because i have concerns. >> monica, very briefly, did he talk at all today about twitter, his use of twitter? is that going to continue? do you have a sense of that? >> well, you saw it last night. >> we saw last night he criticized the media saying they were fomenting these protesters, and then walked that back. >> on his desk today his phone
5:25 pm
was gone. >> all right. >> well, he is hiding it under his pillow. >> that was today. >> that's a blessing for everybody. >> that was today. last night he had four tweets. we wrote about this ina piece that he was still angry about on election night, i would like to say, when he was a few minutes away from becoming the next president of the united states, he was focused on a story the "new york times" had done earlier, and he was angry saying his twitter use was restricted. last night he clearly got it back because he did a tweet that was magnanimous about meeting with the president, and then moments later a tweet about these were paid protesters in conspireing with the media. >> are they going to take away the nuclear codes if he miss behave sns. >> well, we're going to end it there before we devolve into a lot more. a lot tonight including jorge ramos who clashed with trump, getting kicked out of a prs conference. we will hear from him. also a muslim-american woman who
5:26 pm
is supported donald trump and voted for donald trump. we will talk to her about her thoughts. we will be right back. for your retirement, you wanted to celebrate the little things, before they get too big. and that is why you invest. the best returns aren't just measured in dollars. td ameritrade. all finished.umm... you wouldn't want your painter to quit part way. i think you missed a spot. so when it comes to pain relievers, why put up with just part of a day? aleve, live whole not part. painter: you want this color over the whole house?
5:27 pm
imy moderate to severeng crohn's disease. i didn't think there was anything else to talk about. but then i realized there was. so, i finally broke the silence with my doctor about what i was experiencing. he said humira is for people like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission.
5:28 pm
humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, talk with your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
5:29 pm
i'm a substation electrician my nwith pg& varela. when i was 17 years old, signed up for the united states army and i started serving and i now get to serve the customers of pg&e. i get to help other families. and that's what it's all about. when i came back from iraq, couldn't find work. then i found pg&e's power pathway program. here at pg&e i'm successful living in eureka with our two beautiful kids with a brand new career all because of the power pathway program. if you are a veteran, go to and hopefully your life will change like mine did. together, we're building a better california. well, for the third night in
5:30 pm
a row there are people demonstrating in the streets, protesting election of donald trump. want to check in with gary tuckman in atlanta. where are you, what is the crowd like? what has been happening? >> reporter: anderson, right in the heart of downtown atlanta. behind me are hundreds of protesters, probably more than 1,000. these people are intensely angry. if you would have gone to a trump rally over the last couple of weeks and come here, it would have been like you were on two different planets. people are very angry at the results of the election. right on the ramp of interstate 85 and 75. want to show you back here. you see the police behind me. you see the squad cars. the protesters walk up to the squad cars and police warned them, do not pass us by. just now the leader of the protest said we're going back in the other direction because we don't trust these pigs. that was their quote. kind of like a '60s rally. i can tell you there's intense anger, people can't believe the results of the election. i am finding a lot of people who haven't voted. sir, quick question for you. why are you protesting today?
5:31 pm
>> because trump is not our president. he is unfair. he is unfair for everything. he lies about everything. everybody thinks racism is cool but it is not. it is not. >> did you vote in the election? >> i did. >> who did you vote for? >> hill layary all the way. >> do you think anything was unfair? >> the fact she got the popular vote and he still won. it is a lie, we need to stop this now. it is unfair for minorities. >> you can see a lot of people unhappy about that, for the second time in 16 years the democrat in al gore winning the popular vote and the republican winning election. back to you. >> we will continue to keep an eye on that protest as well as others we are watching. also reports of a number of incidents of violence, graffiti, some calling hate crimes following trump's election. tom foreman tonight reports. >> reporter: far from quenching the bitterness of the long campaign, the final vote has
5:32 pm
inflamed passions with anti-trump protesters flooding the streets in more than two dez encities, cursing the president-elect, burning his efigy. simultaneously, acts of demonstrations of hate by tro presume forces flaring. at a middle school in michigan a cafeteria chant of build the wall. at a minnesota high school, graffiti, go back to africa, whites only. trump. in north carolina, similar words, black lives don't matter. in various sites around the northeast, police report nazi-themed pro trump graffiti, an american doll hung up on a college campus, and the door to a muslim prayer room controlled with the president-elect's name. there's no reliable way to measure the true motivation behind all of these recent incidents or to know yet if this represents a significant increase, since law enforcement tracking of hate crimes requires
5:33 pm
extensive investigation first. but in california, more examples. a muslim woman says her head scarf was yanked by an attacker. authorities don't know if it was politically motivated. her take? >> it is a weird could incident. if it wasn't a hate crime, it is a weird coincident it happened after trump became president-elect. >> reporter: at a west coast high school, a mom says this is how her daughter's day started. >> she walked into the class, her first class in the morning, and was greeted with, are you ready to go back to mexico. >> reporter: at the same school, a student handed out deportation notices. said it was a joke. >> it is not a joke. it is not funny. you're making fun of my family. you are making fun of my friends. and it hurts. >> reporter: still, the protest against trump and his supporters while largely peaceful have been undeniably bigger, and have brought their own ugliness. cases of vandalism, arson, arrests and pain. >> we have a couple of officers
5:34 pm
injured. some went to the hospital. [chanting]. >> reporter: through all of the hard words, one clear message is coming through. although the battleground votes have been counted, the battle rages on. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >> univision jorge ramos has his own tense relationship. he was kicked out in summer of 2015 when he tried to ask about the candidate's immigration policy. jorge ramos joins us tonight. >> jorge, some of the acts, these hateful acts we have seen over the last couple of days, graffiti, things like that, how much responsibility do you think president-elect trump, his rhetoric on the campaign trail, how much does his rhetoric bear for them? >> i think he's responsible for that. he 'em boldened groups that are
5:35 pm
expressing hate and dislike of minorities. when he said during the campaign mexican immigrants were rapists and murderers, words have consequences. if there's a headline for the hispanic community right now, it would be fear. fear of hate, fear of reprisals, fear of -- you know, i just saw a video from a michigan school in which some teenagers were chanting, build the wall. that language comes from donald trump, and the problem is that so far donald trump hasn't denounced that. that's the problem. >> monica langley of the "wall street journal," i spoke to her earlier today. she interviewed donald trump and she asked whether his rhetoric went too far on the campaign, and his response was simply, no, i won. >> well, he's responsible for his words. we have now a president who made racist comments when he was running for the white house. we have a candidate who made sexist remarks during the
5:36 pm
campaign. so i think he's responsible for that. not only that, i think he has emboldened many groups. he has -- before the election, many people were saying things in their homes that were private, that were politically incorrect for a reason. now exactly that kind of language is what we are hearing. and after the election many people think that it is okay to say those things and it is not. it simply is not. now we have a president-elect who is going through the process of being normalized by the press and by the political establishment. we have to remember who he is and what he said in the past. >> in the "wall street journal" interview he also talked about the protests we have seen over the last few days. he said, quote, i want a country that loves each other, i want to stress that, and adding the best way to ease tension would be to, quote, bring in jobs. is that the best way to ease tension or do you think donald trump needs to at some point address these protests or address the fears that some
5:37 pm
people in america have? >> the fear is real. again, when he said that, for instance, with latinos and immigrants, when he said he wants to deport 11 million in two years, that's about 15,000 every single day. that's a real fear. when he says that he wants to repeal executive action and that it is going to affect 700,000 dreamers, that's real fear. so i think, yes, he has to address the fact that something is wrong, that there are millions of americans who didn't vote for him, and that these expression is being shown all around the country. >> i remember reading some of your tweets. election day you were saying it was the day when latinos would remember who was with them, who had insulted them. you were looking how latinos were voting in florida, north carolina and nevada and saying they can decide the election, they decided the election in
5:38 pm
part. they decided for donald trump. he got a higher turn out among latinos than i think certainly many people had anticipated. >> absolutely. we were wrong, that's it. we were wrong. i think that we over estimated the importance of the latino vote, and we thought that the latino vote was going to stop donald trump from making it to the white house and we were mistaken. that's for sure. there was a hidden vote within the hispanic community, people, latinos who didn't want to say openly that maybe they were ashamed of saying during the campaign that they were going to vote for donald trump, and at the end they did. >> in august you wrote an op-ed and i remember you said judgment day is coming, and you asked citizens and other journalists a question, will you have peace of mind come november 9th. i wonder, did you have peace of mind come november 9th, you personally? >> i am at peace. i think i did what i had to do.
5:39 pm
i think i asked tough questions of donald trump. i was ejected from a press conference. we produce a documentary called rising that everybody can watch right now on the influence of donald trump in all white movements. i think as a journalist i did what i could. and, again, when -- when you see racism, discrimination, corruption, i think as a journalist you have to take a stand and i took a stand. i don't regret that. matter of fact, i think we need tougher questions. i think one of the mistakes we made as journalists is that we not only didn't see the resentment growing in many corners of the united states and the fact we relied on polls and the polls were wrong, but also that we didn't ask tougher questions sooner. i think many journalists reacted too late to donald trump, but i'm -- i'm at peace. i think i did what i had to do and i'm going to continue doing that. i'll position myself on the
5:40 pm
other side of donald trump. there's a beautiful word in spanish, that it is to be on the other side of power. i think that's where we have to be at journalists, that's where i'm going to be in the next four year. >> jorge ramos, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. later on in the program, a different perspective, a muslim woman, american, an immigrant and trump supporter. up next. we also will take a list at those protecting the president-elect. trump tower is now trump fortress, ringed by secret service and nypd and with dump trucks. we're going to speak about how the security situation has now the security situation has now changed. seriously? verizon limits me and i gotta get home. you're gonna choose navigation over me? maps get up here. umm... that way. girl! you better get on t-mobile! why pay more for data limits?

5:44 pm
looking at anti-trump protests under way right now, the third night demonstrations. earlier this week a massive protest ended in front of trump tower here in new york, the president-elect home and headquarters for his business empire. it has turned into a fortress in the middle of manhattan, even vehicles and aircraft flying overhead. >> reporter: tonight the
5:45 pm
residents of trump tower is a fortress ringed by tight security, the center of an increasingly worrisome question. how do you secure a 58-story sky scraper smack in the center of one of the world's busiest cities? it is a question made even more difficult by the fact the build's atrium is a public space, increasingly difficult to monitor, law enforcement officials say. and the building itself, a target as recently as this year of a suction cup climber. seen as potential vulnerable from any number of threats from surrounding towers and streets. >> because it is so dense, the damage it could cause is potentially immense. so it is going to be -- they're going to have their work cut out for them here for quite sometime. >> reporter: the faa moving to protect it from the air, issuing temporary flight restop-and-frisks that extend nearly 3,000 feet up and two nautical miles out. in the wake of election night, new cement barriers and dump
5:46 pm
trucks line fifth avenue, pushing cars and public further away. now a secret service presence throughout the building and regular presence of more than 100 nypd officers surrounding the property. a debate between secret service and officials still ongoing over more prestrictive actions to take. the group now given their own pen across from the building's main entrance. >> joining us from outside trump tower. with trump tower just off fifth avenue, this has to be incredibly complex for law enforcement officials. this is the heart of midtown manhattan. is there a sense what more they will be doing in coming days? >> reporter: yeah, this is not ideal at all. especially when you talk to secret service officials, anderson. if they had it their way, donald trump would be in the suburbs somewhere, maybe even mar-a-lago, anywhere but here. it is difficult to keep a close
5:47 pm
eye on the threats here. as of now the nypd and secret service are continuing to negotiate on the presence. if the secret service had their way, all of fifth avenue at all times would be closed. it's been closed back and forth over the course of the last couple of hours. they want it changed. they want a number of different shifts. an important point was made by one law enforcement official is this, the nypd knows how to handle these things. they deal with national security issues on a regular basis. there's a push and pull going back and forth, but i will say the secret service wants more done than they've done already. evolving is the way someone put the security posture here. expect more restrictions in the days ahead. anderson. >> phil mattingly. thanks a lot. joining me now jonathan wacro, a former secret service agent who protected president obama and others. candidate trump had secret service protection, but as soon as he becomes president-elect it goes to a new level. >> absolutely. the security posture changes dramatically. he goes from a candidate
5:48 pm
overnight, candidate protection which is, you know, out there, you know. we've seen it for months since he originally got it. all of a sudden the presidential protection division takes over. and, you know, they start implementing the exact same security protocol president obama has today. we've seen that. we've seen, you know, the airspace restriction above trump tower and that will continue wherever he goes. it is not like that is one area. wherever he goes he will have airspace skurtd, increased physical security protection around where he resides. right now he's at trump tower. if he goes to mar-a-lago this weekend, there's going to be an increased security posture there where you're going to have -- >> so he is getting essentially presidential level security? >> absolutely. 100%. >> and every member of his family has also then -- do they all get details? >> they do. so this is actually some uncharted water for the secret service. we haven't had adult children protecties of the president -- right now the president-elect, in a long time. when you look at donald trump's four adult children, they're all going to get their own
5:49 pm
respective, you know, details, and then his young child also will get a detail. that will be covered under the family detail out of the white house. >> the expense of this is going to be astronomical. >> i'm sure it is. but to put a price tag on it. but, listen, it is needed. look at what we're seeing outside, around. >> that's the thing. i mean the level of -- you know, we did a report on some, you know, graffiti that was written and children chanting things in schools, but the flip side of that is, you know, people are talking about doing harm to president-elect trump. so the secret service has to take that very seriously. >> 100%. the the secret service works in a threat-based paradigm. they're looking at, what are the threats? so now as the president-elect, we're looking at intelligence differently. what are those threats coming in. right now twitter the flooded with death threats towards donald trump. so that has to be taken with a different optic, as, you know, the incoming president. so, you know, everything changes
5:50 pm
when you become the president-elect. >> and at a location like this, it's got to present so many challenges. trump tower, there's multiple entrances, it's a high-rise building in the heart of midtown manhattan. >> one thing i want to clarify. the reporting said that the nypd and the secret service are negotiating. there's no negotiating this. you know, there is -- >> with the secret service. >> with the secret service. there is a protective methodology. with that being said, the secret service will be respectful of the nypd and the people of new york. we're in the heart of midtown manhattan. >> they have to take that into account. >> exactly. what we'll try to do is work our protective methodology to accommodate, you know, the nypd, but, you know, you can't negotiate presidential protection. it's just not done. >> yeah, jonathan, i really appreciate it. >> thanks a lot. >> a pleasure. coming up on this veterans day, we ask those who served in our military for their take on president-elect trump. what they had to say, just ahead. okay google, show me korean restaurants in boulder.

on this veterans day, we say thank you to all the men and women who served our country in the armed forces. veterans obviously make up a crucial voting bloc, as well, one that overwhelmingly voted for trump. but there are some who have questions about the next commander in chief.
5:55 pm
randi kaye tonight with her report. >> reporter: in winter park, florida, a ceremony to honor our nation's veterans. and a chance to weigh in on the newly elected commander in chief. >> i just like the guy. i -- you've got to have faith in somebody. >> are you a donald trump fan? >> very much so. >> why'd you vote trump? >> because the way this country's been going is disastrous. >> how do you feel about donald trump being elected? >> i am hopeful, because what i saw over the past few days is a lot different than what i saw the months before hand. >> reporter: exit polls show 61% of the veterans in this country voted for donald trump, yet some here aren't sold on the president-elect. that's despite trump's promise to increase funding for the military and improve medical care at v.a. hospitals. >> donald trump has made a lot of promises to veterans. can he deliver? >> no, he's not going to deliver. he know it and i know it.
5:56 pm
>> the only thing i'm looking at, are we going to have the money to fund all these programs. >> has he overpromised or do you believe he can deliver? >> i believe he can deliver. he's got a republican congress. if they get off their lazy butt. >> reporter: this air force veteran fears trump pandered to veterans just to get elected. >> he never provided details on how he was going to accomplish, like, the economy or jobs or national defense. he just, you know, said that i am smarter than the generals. and that really put me off, being a military person. >> reporter: this veteran, who served 27 years, us with turned off by trump's comment during the campaign that john mccain wasn't a war hero because he'd been captured as a p.o.w.. >> what you do, before you put your mouth in gear, put your brain in gear, okay, and be careful of what you say. you may think it, but you still don't speak it. >> it's the wrong thing to say. not just towards a veteran, but
5:57 pm
towards any american citizen. >> still, while many here refuse to say whether or not they voted for donald trump, they all agree, it's their duty to support him. they hope he'll be able to unify the country. you served this country for 28 years. how does he unite the country that you were willing to give your life for? >> the proof is in the pudding. do you serve the people who elected you to serve? and it's not about serving part of the people, it's about serving all the people. >> i think the country will heal. we always come back together. >> i believe he will be a great president. ♪ and the home of the brave . >> randi joins me now live from orlando. did any of the veterans you spoke with today talk about the fact that donald trump didn't serve in the military? or did that not matter? >> reporter: it does matter to some of them, anderson. before i get to that, i want to point out some folks here behind me. there's a small protest happening here in downtown, orlando. a few hundred people or so,
5:58 pm
certainly against donald trump. we found some folks at this veterans gathering against donald trump as well. i did mention the fact that he had avoided vietnam. and some of them did have a problem with it, and others blew it off saying, you don't have to be in the trenches killing people to serve your country. they believe he has served as a successful businessman in their eyes and they believe he'll be a great president. they love the fact that they believe that he loves the country as much as they do. they think he'll do a lot for homeless veterans, getting warm beds. they love the fact he's not part of the political system, anderson, that they have so little trust for. >> a change election. randi, with thanks very much. in the next hour of "360," will donald trump bring steve bannon with him to the white house as his chief of staff, the former head of breitbart news was a key member of his campaign staff, credited with a lot of success. the question, is he the right man for the job, or would a big name in the republican party be a better fit? we'll dig into that, ahead.
5:59 pm
