5:31 pm
through the smoke. more than three dozen fires burning. good evening, it's great to have you with us on a friday night. what a week it's been in america. the election is over, but inside trump tower, the next administration is just beginning. and this evening, we're on the inside, as we learn many of the names and faces who could be onboard in this administration. the president-elect out of sight today. but the trucks were not. filled with sand, a protective barrier now outside. rudy giuliani, the two posts he could be up for. ivanka trump, her husband and brothers, all of them involved in shaping the next white house. and also this evening, donald trump's tweets as president-elect. and on obama care, his new comments. will it stay alive under president trump? tom llamas leading us off. >> reporter: tonight, trump tower a fortress. armed police out front, the
5:32 pm
president-elect inside surrounded by his core team. his white house now taking shape. 24 hours ago, trump's visit to the obama white house, going off without a hitch. >> and i look forward to being with you many, many more times in the future. >> thank you, sir. >> reporter: returning to his manhattan skyscraper, trump seemed pleased. "really good meeting," he tweeted. "great chemistry." but as night fell, the mood at trump tower growing dark. >> all: donald trump has got to go! >> reporter: on the sidewalk outside, and in cities around the country, protesters taking to the streets to denounce the president-elect. >> all: we reject the president-elect! >> reporter: trump keenly aware of it all. and at 9:19 p.m., firing off this angry tweet. "just had a very open and successful presidential election. now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. very unfair!" but overnight, trump's tone
5:33 pm
suddenly changing. just after 6:00 a.m., a very different message. "love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. we will all come together and be proud!" hours later, trump's inner circle starting to arrive. former campaign manager kellyanne conway, now a senior advisor, meeting me inside. a lot of people said you weren't going to win. >> well, right, but they don't work here. and -- >> reporter: conway telling me vice president-elect mike pence is now taking over the transition. replacing embattled new jersey governor chris christie, who will assume a lesser role. as for who will make up the trump cabinet, conway is tight-lipped. >> there are a number of people being talked about for different jobs. ultimately, that's donald trump's decision. >> reporter: today, we're learning trump's children don jr., ivanka and eric will play a big role in that decision. all three now named to the transition team, helping to build their father's administration even as they prepare to take over the family
5:34 pm
business. during the campaign, they'd promised to keep a strict separation between the two. >> we'll act incredibly responsibly. this is so much bigger than another deal and we all recognize that. >> we're not going to be involved in government. >> reporter: but now we know the trump family will, in fact, be deeply involved in shaping the trump white house. creating the appearance, at least, of a conflict of interest with their business. ivanka trump's husband jared kushner now on the shortlist for white house chief of staff. can you see jared kushner and ivanka leaving new york for washington, d.c.? >> well, jared and ivanka are brilliant. it's a very personal decision what people do and how they feel they can best serve in the context of their own personal relationships, but at the same time it's difficult to resist that tug for almost anyone. >> reporter: among the big names in contention for top jobs, newt gingrich, rnc chairman reince priebus and former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, spotted at trump tower today. >> i have no expectation. all i do is give my advice. >> reporter: giuliani, a former federal prosecutor, certainly sounds interested in being
5:35 pm
attorney general. >> i certainly have the energy, and there's probably nobody that knows the justice department better than me. >> and tom llamas with us live tonight. rudy giuliani is also under consideration for another top job? >> reporter: that's right. his loyalty to donald trump may eventually pay off. we hear he may also be considered for secretary of state. david? >> tom llamas, leading us off. thank you. president-elect trump, sitting down for his first tv interview after the election with "60 minutes." here's what he just said about obama care. >> let me ask you about obama care. 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 going to be covered? >> yes. because it happens to be one of the strongest assets. >> you're going to keep that? >> also with the children living with their parents for an extended period. we're going to try and keep that.
5:36 pm
>> let's get to mary bruce. first, signaling he may not repeal obama care entirely now? >> reporter: yes, he's walking back from an all-out repeal. he now says he's open to keeping two of the most popular provisions, one that would allow children to stay on their parents' plans until they're 26 years old. the other that prevents providers from denying coverage because of pre-existing conditions. trump earlier today said, i like those both very much. david? >> mary, thank you. and tonight, more protests are under way. they're sending a message about the election. but there's a message being sent back tonight. did all the protesters turn out to vote? tonight, hillary clinton's lead in the popular vote continues to grow. and while it fuels soul-searching for millions, it will not change the outcome. democrats must now ask, were there middle-class americans missed? here's gio benitez. >> reporter: tonight, outside
5:37 pm
hillary clinton's onetime campaign headquarters in brooklyn, messages written in chalk. messages like, always with her. you inspire me, and thank you hrc. clinton won the popular vote, by nearly half a million votes. and that number could go higher. and that's what's driving the protests. but about the protests around the country, tonight, there are questions. did all of those protesters vote? >> if y'all wanted her to win so badly, you should have had that kind of enthusiasm before tuesday night. but you didn't, and that's how it goes. >> reporter: there's also another factor. the white working class, where clinton fell short. many of the same voters bill clinton once won over, a group whose support grew when she was senator. but this time, the majority of white working-class voters concerned about jobs and who wanted change turned to trump. >> i didn't want another clinton in office. >> reporter: you wanted change? >> i wanted change. >> i think that america must get
5:38 pm
back to its values. >> reporter: it was the election outcome michael moore had been predicting for months. warning of those who have felt left behind. today, pointing to michigan, a state still not called. >> i voted for her. i'm for her. she lost by 11,000 votes in michigan. 90,000 michiganders voted for every office on both sides of the ballot, and refused to vote for president. >> wow. right. >> they couldn't vote for trump. they knew that was wrong. but they were not going to participate in this, in what they saw as a system. >> yeah. >> that had left them forgotten and at bay. >> reporter: these are some of the same voters bernie sanders courted. now saying trump must keep his promise. >> what we have to demand, mr. trump keep the promises that he made to working families. >> reporter: senator elizabeth warren was asked if she spoke to hillary clinton. >> yes. >> how was it?
5:39 pm
>> good. look, it's hard. it's really hard. she worked hard. she has had 25 years of public service, longer. that has been the defining feature of her life. and this is hard. >> reporter: tonight, lebron james, who stood on that stage with hillary clinton just five days ago, now with a message about moving forward and healing. >> i mean, he's our president. and no matter if you agree or disagree with it, he's the guy. and we all have to figure a way that we can make america as great as it can be. >> reporter: with the growing popular vote, there's an online petition with about 3 million signatures asking the electoral college to cast their votes for clinton. that's unlikely. the democrats will be looking at why they lost the white working-class vote. david? >> gio, thank you.
5:40 pm
and this evening, there are schools across the country sending urgent letters home, after disturbing scenes in classrooms and cafeterias. children from families on both sides of the election. chants in class, and students targeted over which side their family was on. here's linsey davis. >> reporter: a dramatic scene at this high school in nebraska, where hundreds of students walked out to protest president-elect donald trump. as tonight, schools across the country grapple with how to handle feelings triggered by the election. >> scared, confused, betrayed, disconnected from the vision of this country. >> reporter: in this video, teachers recount emotional talks with students as racist videos have popped up on campuses. like this cell phone video in a michigan middle school cafeteria.

eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rarses fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. my bladder leakage made me feel like i couldn't be the father that i wanted to be. now i use depend. i can move the way i really want. unlike the bargain brand, depend fit-flex underwear is more flexible to move with you.
