tv MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle MSNBC November 9, 2016 6:00am-7:01am PST
on newspapers orion line publications, we look like and write about hyphenated america. 20-year-old high school graduates, 27-year-old white women. it's hyphenated america. >> right. >> we look at a lot of people, a lot of really, really decent, hard working people as if they're lab experiments. the white or poor black worker. it's a lab experiment. let's find out what their lives are like. >> what's the matter with kansas? what's the matter with this group? what's the matter with that group? i mean, the fact is, mika, that i have always found people vote their self-interests. if anybody thinks that all of those people went out to make a statement against multi-culturalism, this ism or that ism. they don't understand what works for people. they went out there for what they believed to be their own economic interests. they came out in waves, and as frank and steve said, they blew
up both parties in the process. >> the impossible became the improbable became completely a part of reality. frank, thank you. >> thank you. >> that does it for us this morning. stay with msnbc throughout the day as we continue to cover this historic election. the drama continues to unfold. donald trump becoming the 45th president of the united states. hillary clinton is set to speak at 10:30 eastern time now. we'll be carrying that live. >> thank you guys for coming out. >> president obama will address the nation this afternoon. stephanie rule picks up the coverage right now. it's going to be okay. >> it's going to be okay. thanks so much, mika. good morning. i'm stephanie rule. an extraordinary day. one of the greatest political upsets in american history has just taken place. >> it is time for us to come together as one united people.
>> history. an electoral earthquake very few saw coming. donald trump elected president in a decisive win. >> i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all america. >> donald trump declaring victory at 3:00 a.m. last night. hillary clinton conceding just minutes before. >> secretary clinton has conceded to donald trump. >> but no speech. instead, she will be speaking this morning. we will bring that to you live. and republicans, they are now in full control with the presidency, the house, and the senate. the reaction? global markets are dropping. international leaders are weighing in. and many americans are wondering with the muslim ban, repealing obamacare, what exactly will a donald trump presidency look like? this morning donald j. trump will be the 45th president of the united states, a true
outsider running our country and a nation tries to come together. we have got to begin today with these stunning, stunning results. donald trump elected president with a ton of help from the united states. middle america. they got out there. they voted. their voices were heard. it was long after midnight when pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes put donald trump over the top. while the electoral vote shows a resounding trump victory, check this out, hillary clinton is actually winning the popular vote. here's a problem for hillary, it doesn't matter. it doesn't put her in the white house. she didn't speak publicly last night. she's expected to do so in about an hour and a half. we will carry her remarks live when they happen. she has a lot of people she needs to talk to today. meanwhile, president-elect trump did speak last night beginning the task of trying to unite a bitterly divided nation. >> now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division.
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. it's time. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans, and this is so important to me. for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, i'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country. >> donald trump's remarks last night after 3:00 a.m. and we have learned that trump has been invited to meet with
president obama at the white house tomorrow to discuss the transition. president obama called trump a few hours ago to congratulate him on that victory. how's that meeting going to go? earlier this morning, trump updated his twitter bioto show him as the president-elect. his first tweet of the day came out just after dawn. such a beautiful and important evening. the forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. we will all come together as never before. reactions from around the country, shock, surprise and questions about where exactly the country goes from here. we're going to break it down and try to get some answers this morning. you're in luck, because we have the best team in the business joining me right now. i want to start with nbc's hallie jackson who has been working around the clock. hallie, first, for those of us who didn't stay up all night like you did. >> yeah. >> walk us through the map. it really looks like donald trump flipped multiple states from blue to red. >> yeah. >> how did he do that? >> i want to do two thingsment
i'm -- things. i'm oncor knack can i's big board. he had to win north carolina and he did, florida, and he did. he nailed down the make or break states. he wasn't broken at that point, if you will. that was the boost and the early signal that we saw this was going to go on for a while. then what did donald trump do? he won pennsylvania. we had been talking about pennsylvania as a place that looked like an uphill climb. he got wisconsin. looks like he's going to take michigan. blue leaning battle grounds. his campaign started talking about them a couple of weeks ago before really anybody in these public polls started to see any kind of a shift. and it ended up being for donald trump the right call, steph. so when you look at sort of where the map is, when you look at what he's done, it is fascinating in the way that he has reshaped where we thought the map was basically. >> all right. i want to bring in msnbc's casey hunt with me now.
casey, you too have been up all night. we're going to hear from hillary clinton who was up pretty late in the next hour. what do you think -- this is a woman who has been in the public eye for 30 years. think about what the last year and a half has looked like for her. what's she going to say? >> steph, i think that the clinton campaign is still very much in a state of shock. they went into this night believing very strongly that they were going to come out on top and they believed that for quite some time now. if there were suggestions, you know, the week before, they were typically shot down. all of their interge polling, all of the democratic internal polling and outside groups, all of the republican polling, it all showed her coming out on top. for a candidate that quite frankly -- she went through this loss in 2008 that was so dramatic. she went in, you know, as the expectant favorite against barack obama. was taken by surprise by a candidate who frankly inspired more people and who may have worked a little bit harder at the time. they came into this saying, you
know what, we learned our lesson. we're not going to make the same mistakes that we made in 2008, but the reality is they did end up making some mistakes in assuming too much. in kind of presenting themselves as inevitable, and i think that at the end of the day, you know, here we are sitting in a place where they certainly never thought that they would be. and i think the most telling thing that happened is she did not come out and speak last night. i think that really should be viewed as a statement of how deeply she was feeling this. >> all right. steve schmidt joins us now and hallie is here. steve, help me out here. >> yeah. >> let's explain this. we're going to say the media, the media. how does president obama have an approval rating over 50% beloved yet that's certainly not how people vote? >> i think it's a mistake to say he's beloved as opposed to liked. and i think people like the president personally but in the parts of the country that you saw turn out in overwhelming
numbers, core policies, obamacare, these are the people stuck with the premium increases that, you know, president clinton talked about, the craziest thing ever, that are getting the letters in the mail, that have seen their towns hollowed out, that have seen a regulatory regime inflicted on manufacturing businesses that has been harmful to jobs. you know, we talk about, you know, democrats talk about, you know, all the economic growth and the jobs numbers, but you have record numbers of people outside of the work force. you have no real wage increase for this population that turned out over the last generation. and so you heard really a primal scream. what this is all rooted in is a collapse of trust in institutions, governmental, political, business, media. the defining event of this generation is not september 11th, it was the global
financial crisis where 13 million people lose their homes, 12 million people lose their jobs. the big banks get $1 trillion in taxpayer money. not one banker goes to jail. these people believe that there is one set of rules for people at the top, different set of rules for everybody else and there's really no person on the planet who perfect sonny phied the one set of rules for people at the top that hillary rodham clinton. >> is that what we missed? president obama's first state of the union address this year, he said this economic recovery is so strong anyone who disagrees is simply peddling lies. did america hear president obama say that? and say are you kidding me? and it's not just the factory worker who lost his job, it's people around the country who can't afford to pay for college, who are worried about obamacare, who can't get bank loans following the financial crisis. >> who looked at what the president was saying and said, that's not my life, that's not my experience.
half of the country roughly is not surprised because they have supported donald trump. his base has supported him from the very beginning. they saw this coming and they never waivered. you look at one of the moments of the campaign that everyone said, this is it. this is over for donald trump. the "access hollywood" thap came out and the bus video and the next day, i think, i was at a rally and there were women there in signs wearing shirts. one woman said donald trump can grab my -- there was an arrow. >> i'm all set. i know where you're going. >> what i'm saying, that was an indication that his base was sort of i don't want to say r rabid behind it, but they were mobile. the army would turn out and it turns out they did. they are not surprised by what they're seeing. >> then the issues that we raised so much, whether it was donald's conduct with women or who he is, are those issues sort of ancillary? and america said, i've got basic needs. i need to be financially secure, socially free, physically safe. i am not getting that with hillary clinton. i don't care if donald's a dirty
dog. he's going to keep me safe and keep my home. >> i think president-elect trump was so well known and so -- you know, he was -- because he was a reality tv star, people felt like they knew who he was in a way that we've not seen before in a presidential race. and people were willing to forgive him things that they were frankly not willing to forgive other people. i think a big part of that -- or other politicians anyway. part of that is the fact that he was -- that's what he was selling. he was selling, hey, we don't have to all be politically correct. we can say what we think. we can say why we're being hurt and who we think is responsible for that. that is okay. i think people bought into that in a very intense way. >> did people buy into that and just not want to admit it to pollsters who were calling them on the phone? >> the pollsters were calling the wrong people. >> when we talk about this hidden trump vote and we joked and said, come on, how many people can there be living up on a hill with a gun under their
pillow, was it not necessarily those people but people all across the country saying i'm over this uber political correctness? i'm over being a global citizen. >> all of these issues that casey was talking about, they were secondary issues in this election. what's more offensive, is it his crude talk with billy bush or is it that the factory was closed, that you saw somebody come in and make an announcement and say that you're going to train these foreign workers to take your job and the rest of the plant's going to mexico. no hope. no opportunity. don't under estimate the power of resentment and the power of his slogan, make america great again has three parts to it. these voters deeply believe it. they believe the country was once great. it no longer is. it's at its very, very, very last hour to be so again. what these voters believe to
their core is that barack obama succeeded in his mission of change and transformation and he did it with a come police city -- complicit, feckless system. all part of a rigged system. donald trump didn't just topple the democratic party last night, he toppled the republican party. >> let's talk about the people who are afraid today. this was a very divisive election and now you've got the house, the senate, the presidency, you've got a supreme court seat getting filled. how concerned should people be about a checks and balance? >> well, listen. i think when you look at where the republicans are, where the congress is right now, the people who -- remember, most members of congress, majority of congress did support donald trump. we can talk about never trump folks like ben sass who just came out with a statement, it just popped into the e-mail here from my producer, he said, i congratulate president-elect trump on his decisive victory. we pray he will lead wisely and
faithfully and keep his oath to a constitution of limited judgment. starting today i will do everything in my power to hold the president to his promises. so you will see some of that in congress and you will see -- i think that one thing is going to help. we spoke with senator rand paul on this program, this network a little bit ago, the first month when they go through all of these executive actions. that's a goodwill building issue. >> but, look, here's the difference. the last time that we had universal control of house, senate, presidency was when barack obama took office in 2008. we got obamacare out of it. it was the last big thing he was able to do. he did it because the house and senate were 100% on board and in line behind him. that is not going to be the case for donald trump. now these dissenters may be just a few and far between. this is the construction you're hearing. mitt romney tweeted something similar. you know what, we have faith in this guy. we're prying for him. we're thinking about him. >> we're praying for him. >> but we hope in mitt romney's case, i hope he lives up to what he said in that concession speech last night.
i think that one of the emerging story lines is going to be whatever tension exists between donald trump and the congress, does the congress, mitch mcconnell and paul ryan, how do they view their role? is it to make sure donald trump is not sending -- many of them have said he would send the country off the rails. are they going to stand in the way? >> we've got to go. thank you all so much. we also have to remember, those who are getting behind donald trump now, it doesn't necessarily make them hypocrites, it makes them americans who are getting behind the president-elect. the election is over. it is time for our country to start working again. we've got to take a break. coming up, trump's path to victory ran through the rust belt flipping blue states red. how did he do it? we're going to take you there. plus, we are minutes away from the stock market opening. will there be a drop? best wishes for our duly elected president. may his victory speech be his
guide for guiding the public. whoa, this is awful, try it. oh no, that looks gross what is that? you gotta try it, it's terrible. i don't wanna try it if it's terrible. it's like mango chutney and burnt hair. no thank you, i have a very sensitive palate. just try it! guys, i think we should hurry up. if you taste something bad, you want someone else to try it. it's what you do. i can't get the taste out of my mouth! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. shhh! dog, dog, dog.
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. >> those hard-working americans helped donald trump break through the democrats blue wall winning states like pennsylvania and wisconsin. that is where we find steve patterson and kelly o'donnell this morning. i want to bring in steve first. he's in wayne, pennsylvania. steve, donald trump is the first republican to carry the state since 1988.
please, how did he do it? >> reporter: stephanie, no doubt about it, he was supposed to -- sorry, hillary clinton was supposed to carry this state. she wins pittsburgh, she wins philadelphia, she wins the coveted voters in the suburbs that surround philadelphia but she largely misses the white working class in the middle of this state. now it is president-elect trump. we're at a suburban philadelphia diner. have two ladies now. we have debby and julie -- >> julie and debby. >> supports trump and debby supports clinton. why, julie, support donald trump? >> we need a change. i'm the committee woman in marpel and we had 85% turnout for trump. we worked hard. we went door to door and people needed change today. >> julie? >> debby. >> debby. i am for clinton because of all the heckling that trump has done. at first i thought it was a joke that he was running for president. he needs to apologize to the
mexicans, to the handicapped and the women that he made fun of. >> ladies, thank you very much. >> thank you. go, trump! congratulations. >> all right. thanks. now to nbc's kelly o'donnell. she's in janesville, wisconsin. kelly, wisconsin was tight. this is a blue state so tell me, what are you hearing today? >> reporter: it was blue until last night, stephanie. what we are hearing is that part of what worked for donald trump here is the operation of the top republicans in this state, from reince priebus, the rnc chairman who knows his home state well to scott walker to house speaker paul ryan. this is his hometown. they know how to get the vote out for their candidates across the board, including ron johnson, the senator who had an upset victory winning his seat back. very few thought that could happen. today paul ryan is here. he will talk about the election, talk about what comes next. he will now have a partner in
the next white house who is of the same party but someone he's had a very difficult relationship with throughout the campaign season. so that will not be an easy predictable relationship as we go forward. paul ryan will certainly be making news here today. i'm also told that some of the trump insiders will be meeting at trump tower sometime around noon today to go over the transition plan. they have a book ready, all kinds of topic areas to kick off what they would expect to be the first 100 days, the first 200 days of a new trump administration. there is a lot of hiring to do. there's a lot of decision making too do to move from campaign to white house in waiting. and so a partner like paul ryan fixing that relationship, working with that relationship is going to be critical for the success of a trump administration going back after the campaign season and getting down to business. steph? >> all right. thanks, kelly. we just learned that the apparent winner in the state of minnesota which carries ten
electoral votes is hillary clinton. now it does not change the outcome of this race. remember, even winning the popular vote doesn't change the outcome. we know what the outcome is. donald trump is the president-elect. i want to talk about this with msnbc contributor and conservative talk show host in wisconsin, charlie sykes. hello. first, what is your reaction? >> well, first of all, i would like my crow served baked this morning. >> i already asked for it. >> you know, the loneliest people in america today are anti-trump conservatives. what happened in wisconsin was fascinating. donald trump got about just a few,0 thousand more votes than mitt romney did. the democrats did not come out for hillary clinton. they sat at home. milwaukee, it was dramatically down. here in wisconsin the report was exactly right. you know, from scott walker to reince priebus to paul ryan, they did turn people out. they turned people out for ron johnson.
you may have had reverse coattails here. the issues that really resonated here. you had the supreme court. you had obamacare. you had the economy. all of those things. this sense that the left was at ramming speed on so many issues, whether it's transgender, jobs, all of these things. i think people were tired of having an administration that apologized for america, and in the end i think what happened was most republicans, not all republicans, came home and decided that they were going to vote for donald trump because they were just sick of the obama legacy and of hillary clinton and, of course, she really never made a case. she did not make a positive case here. she inspired no enthusiasm. she provided no rationale, no vision. i think she just simply assumed people were going to vote against donald trump. >> she assumed wrong. charlie, thanks so much for joining me this morning. when you get that crow, i'll share it with ya. coming up, market futures took a nose dive as a trump victory seemed imminent. now we are minutes away from the opening bell. how will the stock market react
the search for relief often leads... here... here... or here. today, there's a new option. introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy. a tens device with high intensity power that uses technology once only available in doctors' offices. its wireless remote lets you control the intensity. and helps you get back to things like... this... this... or this. and back to being yourself. introducing new aleve direct therapy. find yours in the pain relief aisle.
you are watching msnbc. just minutes ago, nbc called the state of minnesota. hillary clinton taking it with 10 electoral college votes. it does not change the outcome. the apparent winner, according to nbc, hillary clinton in the state of minnesota. i, of course, not just looking at the map, i'm looking at the clock. we are one minute away from the stock market opening right here in new york city. i'm joined by my colleague ali velshi. ali, we've said over and over throughout this election, wall street loves hillary clinton. >> right. >> that's not the case. wall street doesn't love political parties, wall street hates surprise parties. >> correct. >> and that's what we got last night. >> that's exactly right. if you're an investor, the first thing you do when something weird happens, you do not want to be caught holding the bag,
you get rid of it. even if you sell something at a loss, you get it off your hands. you don't want to be caught with a loser. that's what happened. japan sold off. it was a 5% loss at the end of the day in japan. as it went through europe it tempered. now we're here. we're going to see it. >> here you go. bell ripping. >> yeah. >> dana corp down there at the exchange. >> you don't want pr like that. this market's probably going to start 200 points lower. big improvement over -- i mean, at 2:00 in the morning it looked like it might have been a 7 or 800 point loss the way markets were going. here's what i think happened. let's see where this market goes. i think the uncertainty is the first thing. i think that when you look at donald trump's policies, some of them are quite pro business. one of them isn't. >> trade. >> the trade business. >> trade. >> people have to remember that trade is the most boring thing to talk about.
when venice existed, we are traders, we make things, we buy things, we sell things, we ship things. if you're a business involved in a market today, many are, this is worrisome. >> trade also touches foreign policy. again, back to the markets, markets don't like uncertainty. when you look at donald trump, yes, he's a businessman, but he's unpredictable thus far. >> correct. >> when you look at someone who could affect trade, relationships with places like china. >> yeah. >> the market doesn't know how to price that. >> that is correct. they're thinking it through. now we're thinking about who gains and who loses. the first thing, the gainers, where are we at? >> the dow is up. it's about the market. you mentioned policies. think about these policies. who lost here? elizabeth warren. >> right. >> donald trump said i want to repeal dodd-frank. >> banks are going to be happy. the coal industry is going to be happy. if you're an industry that gets regulated, telecom, pharmaceutical, tobacco
industry, you're going to like this. he's spoken about infrastructure. he wants to spend on infrastructure. caterpillar is up. if you're going to build infrastructure, you generally are going to buy caterpillar machines to do it. >> the health care industry. >> health care industry. >> if we see obamacare repealed and the power goes into the hands of the insurers, they have had their hands cuffed. >> depends where you are. there are companies like insurers who will gain, there are other companies who have benefitted from obamacare because of the amount of increased spending that has gone to health care. so that's where we are. right now we are in that process where analysts, there are a whole bunch of traders, volume is very high here. there are a whole bunch of traders who went to work early. one stopped by here and was on my show at 5:00 in the morning because he was getting in to work by 6. they are thinking this through and trying to make decisions wisely. if you own stocks in your 401k, i would not lock in the loss by selling today because you're not smarter or faster than professional traders. >> the other thing to point out in terms of patience, corporate
america, we did not see ceos, fortune 100 ceos back donald trump. but it might not have been about his policies. remember, donald is an extreme guy who said a lot of extreme things. if you were a consumer facing company in the last six months, the things donald trump said about mexico -- >> you don't want to be associated with. >> but his policy, his policies are more pro business than hillary clinton's were. >> and a number of companies, cfos, at&t came out and said we're looking forward to working with the trump administration. business is smart. it knows how to pivot. he's going to be the president. there's no point in digging in and not liking him. you might as well work with him. over the course of the next few days everything will adjust itself. whether it was brexit, 9/11, when big shocks happen to the market, this market is relatively resilient. if we are not in a recession, it generally goes upward. so think before you lock in the fact that you sell in a down market. we're not seeing a down market right now. >> the answer is try to have patience, have a long-term view.
ali, we are going to continue this conversation days, weeks, months. why? because we elected a new president last night. i want to give you more of the results from senate where republicans dashed democratic hopes for a majority. at this hour democrats hold 45 seats compared to republicans 51. in florida, marco rubio beat challenger patrick murphy. in pennsylvania, republican pat toomey beat a strong challenge from democrat kate mcginty. democrats picked up one seat in illinois after tammy did you have -- duffor ousted the incumbent. in new hampshire it's still too close to call. right now one race has still not been called. long-time california congressman darrell issa and his challenger, doug applegate. marijuana was a big winner last night. you can say that party won. voters in california,
massachusetts, and maine and nevada approved recreational marijuana initiatives. florida, north dakota, and arkansas approved medical marijuana initiatives. up next, now that he's won, how will donald trump begin the job of actually governing? >> it's hard to over estimate what this means tonight and how nervous i am. >> we are having a conversation now that it was impossible to have two weeks ago.
i am totally blind. i lost my sight in afghanistan. if you're totally blind, you may also be struggling with non-24. calling 844-844-2424. or visit my24info.com. he wears his army he hat, walks aroundpliments. with his army shirt looking all nice. and then people just say, "thank you for serving our country" and i'm like, that's my dad. male vo: no one deserves a warmer welcome home. that's why we're hiring 10,000 members of the military community. i'm very proud of him. male vo: welcome to new beginnings. comcast.
[ dinosaur growls ] and his dad earned 2% back at grocery stores and wholesale clubs. yeah! even before they earned 3% back on gas. danny's parents used their bankamericard cash rewards credit card to give him the best day ever. that's the joy of rewarding connections. learn more at bankofamerica.com/getcashback. it's been what they call a historic event, but to be really historic we have to do a great job. and i promise you that i will not let you down. we will do a great job. we will do a great job. >> fresh off his stunning victory, donald trump must now look forward to building his administration and trying to bring together a sharply divided nation. in the next hour hillary clinton
will deliver her concession speech and we will bring that to you live. joining me now, veteran journalist and magazine editor tina brown. also with me "new york times" op ed columnist frank rooney. tina, i want to start with you. we're all sitting here sort of silenced, in shock. hillary clinton has to be in shock as well, but when we saw al gore lose, he did a brave thing. he got up and gave a speech to the country. what do you think hillary clinton's going to say? >> i think this has been the most devastating and tragic thing for her to absorb. the fact she did not come out last night speaks to that depth. she realized in those last weeks that she was fighting not simply and only for the presidency, not only for her own legacy, her husband's legacy, her win, but she was really also fighting for the whole idea of the united states of america as an open,
welcoming, multi-cultural -- one of the things that we have loved about america she began to realize were suddenly in deepen ar did i, not to mention the national security threats. some of the stakes were intoll ler ran bring high. she will feel, you know, that she has lost that for america. and i think that's why she couldn't come out last night. it was much bigger than a personal loss. it was a sense that i'm the person who
delivered trump. >> frank -- >> i'm the person who let down the country. >> did we over simplify things? did we believe that hillary clinton and this all-inclusive global citizen message does represent the united states and thought that this base that donald trump had really was just in this narrow nationalist vertic vertical? when you think about lgtb initiatives, it matters to so many people, many people could say transgender bathrooms in high schools? how many people is that going to impact in this country?
not so many. >> the way that has come back to haunt the country not just in the presidential race. we thought the democrats were going to take control of the senate. they didn't. we thought they'd pick up more seats in the house than they did. i think in a lot of ways the democratic party has become this collection of boutique issues, that they think if you add them altogether you get to 51% or 52, but when you do those sorts of boutique issues and you put all your fire power and rhetoric there, there's a lot of the country that feels ignored. i really think the democratic party has to do some big
soul searching. more than two years ago everybody decided it was going to be hillary clinton. let's be honest, it was hers two years ago. bernie sanders almost interrupted it. but all the forces were aligned behind her. she was not a candidate that fit this moment at all. they were trying to sell a product at the wrong time and they refused to see that or they couldn't find a way around her, and here we are with donald trump over your shoulder. >> in their defense, they refused to see it. so did we.
look at the polls. explain that. >> the polls are absolutely mysterious. frank is right, that the rage, the bitterness, the feelings out there were very intense. and as we saw with the huge rise of bernie sanders. what blows one away is that another candidate didn't come up to challenge hillary actually when it was quite clear, really, that she wasn't the right candidate for this moment. that for all her skill, all her intelligence, all her hard work, the zeit geist is the zeit geist. she was a candidate when disrupture is what was going to win the day. it's absolutely tragic there wasn't another candidate with some of what bernie sanders brought to the table. it's a tragedy. >> frank, are the polls -- >> sorry. >> i laughed at the republicans when they started out with 17 candidates. from those 17 candidates they ended up with a candidate who
was in touch with the people. the democrats, three candidates, one was clearly destined to win from the very beginning. there was no room in that process to find a person who truly fit the moment and that's the story of this election because all the big data in the world, all of the hired guns in the world and experts aren't going to overcome that? >> could the polls have been wrong? because so many of us are afraid to say what matters. in terms of political correctness, if you run a small business, i mean a lawyer, an architect, when you say, guess what, i can't afford to give the five people that work for me if they're women, i can't afford to give them 20 weeks maternity leave. obamacare might help the rest of the country, but in my business i can't do it. >> actually, i think the biggest problem is you're afraid to discuss it because of the velocity of social media attack when you really try to have a
conversation about anything like that. i've often said actually as an employer myself that nobody wants to talk about is it. how do we manage all of this time off for people? >> yeah. >> if you have a small business, it's very hard. you can't have half the staff not there when you've got seven or eight -- >> you can't afford it. >> it's something nobody wants to talk about. it just has to be discussed. it's not like there's no solution for it or no strategies for it. we can't ignore it. >> we want to help people but we want to survive first. >> we're all somewhat to blame. when people are silenced, when they say i don't agree with obamacare, i don't agree with transgender bathrooms, if they say that it gets them branded whether it's on social media. it gets them branded a bigot, a deplorable. they're going to find some sort of outlet for that seathing and the outlet is donald trump, the 45th president of the united states. >> it was the same in brexit. i remember being in the u.k. a lot and hearing almost like a secret conversation, which is this anxiety about immigration. if you raise that conversation
in any way publicly, you were a racist, a xenophobe. if you can't have a conversation, it boils underneath and explodes. >> dangerous, but this is our moment. people voted. now this is our chance. it's out there to heal. frank, tina, thank you so much. we have to take a break. hillary clinton is expected to speak soon. we're going to take you there live at "the new yorker" hotel ahead of what will be the final speech of her presidential campaign. plus, we are watching the markets -- they're up. i would almost say we're having a bit of an unchanged morning. if you thought we were going to have a big swing, we are not. people are settling into this news, donald trump president-elect.

"the new yorker" hotel where hillary clinton will speak shortly. kristen, long night for you. long campaign. what are we expecting? >> reporter: steph, good morning. i think that secretary clinton, when she speaks today, is going to try to strike a note of unity. we haven't gotten any official preview about what she's going to say, but based on recent speeches that she's been giving, that is certainly a point that she has been hitting quite a lot. and the campaign thinks that that is going to be critical to helping to move this country forward. steph, to your point, it is hard to over state how difficult -- how devastating this loss is for secretary clinton and for her team. just a little bit of a scene setter. here we are standing outside of this mid town hotel, and there is a steady stream of her supporters, her volunteers, her staffers entering the hotel. so many of them, steph, still with tears in their eyes. one woman stopped me, a 71-year-old african-american
woman stopped me and just started sobbing and said, please tell the country how devastated we are by this, how much we wanted to see secretary clinton win. we wanted to see the first woman become president. for so many of the folks here it is about seeing the first woman become president. it's aboutthem, they also saw a very sharp contrast with donald trump, they saw his message as one that was divisive. and secretary clinton at least very recently has talked quite a lot about how she hopes to move the country forward. i think those are some of the themes she's going to be echoing when she speaks today. >> thanks, kristen. hillary clinton did make history last night. look how far she has come. it was a move forward for women. we must say that. coming up, several world leaders have already reached out to congratulate donald trump. russian president putin is among them. what does that mean, putin congratulating trump and saying
