i've just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us, it's about congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. >> in a stunning turn of events, america has elected billionaire businessman donald trump as our 45th president of the united states. a shocking outcome for hillary clinton and her shell-shocked supporters who appeared to have the momentum and polls on their side.
good webs morning, everyone. >> certainly a head spinning night and morning for so many. absolutely astonishing morning in america. leaving both sides in awe. hillary clinton has conceded the presidential race and donald trump is set to become the 45th president of the united states. voters across the country confounded nearly every poll and historic election and made the republican billionaire our next commander in chief. for the first time in our nation's history the next leader of the free world has no military or public experience to draw upon. trump made sure to revel in his anti-establishment, anti--washington persona during his victory speech earlier this morning. >> the president-elect of the united states of america, donald
. >> sorry to keep you waiting. complicated business. complicated. 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. >> as for hillary clinton, she could not hold ontth able to give president obama two terms. trump blew past expectations like florida and north carolina, this morning most clinton supporters are shell shocked crying and in a state of you thor disbelief and just moments ago trump tweeted, such a beautiful and important evening. the forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. we will all come together as never before. >> i want to bring in our panel,
radio milwaukee and msnbc contributor and former governor ed rendell. thank you for being with me as we're all dissecting this this morning, the turn of events. governor, when you have donald trump who has defied polls, pundants, pretty much the political playbook overall, we're calling for this autopsy, looking in on what happened, what will we find? >> i think first you've got to give donald trump a l very good politicians in the republican primaries and found something with the american people. he did it in his own flamboyant style and he did the same thing with hillary clinton. we were all pretty certain as of when we went to bed monday night that she was going to be president. so give him some credit for getting voters that had never voted before to come to the polls.
hillary clinton performed very well in philadelphia winning by 455,000 vote margin. she won the philadelphia suburbs by almost 200,000 and yet that 650,000 vote lead wasn't enough because so many new voters showed up in the red areas of pennsylvania and donald trump deserves the credit for doing that. we can analyze it, but interestingly, the most interesting fact was that the attorney general, auditor general and treasurer all were men and they all won solid victories by a quarter of a million votes or more. three men won. hillary clinton lost, katie mcginty for senate lost. two women lost. three men won. it makes you wonder whether there's a male vote that simply won't vote for women in this country. that's another factor i think you have to consider.
white house now in republican control. was this wave something that the media and public did not understand? was this a majority of the country voting against hillary clinton or did we just under estimate trump's support here? >> it's not clear that a majority -- >> sorry, governor. that question was for charlie. >> go ahead. charlie. >> sure, i apologize. >> this 1,000. the word stunning will be used over and over. it's a stunning repudiation of the obama years, of hillary clinton and of course now conservatives own it all. and the question is, what are they going to do with this? what kind of a presidency are we going to see? what is their agenda? the reality is that nobody really knows because this was so unthinkable. how will donald trump work with my friend paul ryan? how is he going to work with a senate majority? does he actually understand what
it, this was a rebuke to the conventional wisdom. frankly, we have to go back several generations to get anything even remotely close to this. >> charlie sykes and governor rendell, i'm going to ask you to stick around. we'll come back on the back end to get your reaction. let's start with the battleground states including steve patterson in wade, pennsylvania. let me begin with you. give us a sense of how that night has played out, what people are waking up tohi >> reporter: ayman, this was an absolute stunner. hillary clinton was supposed to win pittsburgh and she did. she was supposed to win philadelphia and she did. she was supposed to win the ever important key counties around philadelphia and she did. those counties usually account for who wins the state. she won that, too. what she did not win is the state of pennsylvania. there is a lot of red that got unaccounted for.
supporters. we have joe and bob. how do you gentlemen feel this morning? >> great. >> yeah? >> yeah. >> and yourself? >> i'm very pleased with the outcome. >> what is it about donald trump that led him to your vote? >> well, he -- i was very interested in the issue of the selection of the supreme court justices and i think that there are some issues that are very near and dear to my heart, the sanctity of life and the the economy and national security also. >> bob? >> i would agree with sanctity of life and with the supreme court. i would say i was one of those voters where i really didn't have my mind made up until about a week ago. i was probably going to do write in or leave it blank. but in the last week did a lot of praying and concluded i needed to follow the platform. and it sounds like there were a lot of people just like you. thank you so much, gentlemen,
republican senator also won this state. that is a big victory for republicans in the state and across the country. back to you. >> all right. steve, thank you very much. i want to bring back in charlie sykes and former governor rendell. we heard from steve there with the trump supporters and how they were brought in. we've been reading and hearing from hillary clinton supporters and consistently i've been hearing this theme of fear, that they're just flat out scared when it comes to immigration, foreign policy, health care as well. how can donald trump bridge that ease those fears that so many people have? governor? >> well, i think it depends on the appointments that he makes. if he appoints a cabinet that is broad based, includes some democrats, includes some moderate republicans, i think that will be an important first step. if he appoints a cabinet that we talked about in some of the earlier races over the weekend, i think those fears will
trying to reach that coalition, reaching across the aisle, where are there issues that there could be cooperation between democrats and republicans under the leadership of president-elect donald trump? >> i don't know. he has to decide what kind of president he wants to be, whether or not he's going to be looking for vengeance against the people who perhaps didn't come on board, whether he's going to work with democrats. look, i think that we're going to have to see, you know, how this all shakes out hereau governing philosophy. i think a lot of republicans are simply going to assume -- are assuming that he's simply going to sign their legislation, that there's going to be a lot of pressure on him to sign a lot of that, the paul ryan better way agenda. i don't know how much bipartisan cooperation he's going to be getting here but i agree with the governor, that it's going to be very interesting to see who he surrounds himself with,
or whether it's that inner circle running the campaign. >> big question here, what's going to happen with the democratic party. i want to talk to you about that, governor, especially with hillary clinton. what can we expect from her? what will she say and where can we see her as far as her role and the democratic party from this point forward? >> well, first of all, i think she'll be very gracious and she'll acknowledge the incredible campaign that donald trump ran. agaie popular and formidable candidate in hillary clinton, so i think she'll acknowledge that. she'll congratulate him. she'll pledge her cooperation. i don't know if he'll want it, but we'll see. >> we'll see how active she is out there in the public eye and public service. as always, thank you for being with us. just ahead, the election sent markets around the world on a roller coaster throughout the night and early morning.

as the election results were coming out stock markets around the globe were in turmoil. stock futures in the u.s. dropped as much as 800 points at one point. cnbc's landon dowdy joins us to make sense of it all. >> good morning to you both. u.s. markets are poised to open sharply lower this morning. at one point just a few hours ago futures indicated the dow could fal points. the biggest loss ever in the dow's history. 777 points after congress rejected the government bailout bill during the financial crisis in the fall of 2008. but futures has since come well off of their lows as the presidential race was called. dow futures are now down about 400 points. over seas, lots of red arrows. europe is down but also off the lows of the day. asia, the stock market posting
919 points or about 5%. the u.s. dollar as well as other major currencies such as the japanese yen and swiss frank has had losses. those currencies are seen as a safe haven investment. if you want to keep an eye on the mexican peso, it's been viewed as a barometer. the future of u.s. trade policy with its neighbors, gold another safe haven investment worth as much as 5% early this morning as ayman and frances, we'll keep you updated throughout the day. >> landon, thank you. just ahead, russia's putin has already congratulated donald trump. the world isn't happy about what america has just done. we'll bring you more reaction next. every day is a gift especially for people with heart failure. but today there's entresto?- a breakthrough medicine that can help make more

washington as we take a live look ther they're all watching closely as the election results came in overnight. perhaps none closer than russia, a nation that was a hot button issue on the trail. >> nbc's lucy cavanaugh is live in moscow. what are you hearing not just from russia but around the world. >> reporter: hey, guys. it's chilly weather here and chilly is the reception from the western ally. we saw the french president congratulating trump but warning
uncertainty. the german vice chancellor warning that trump will bring in a, quote, new authoritarian national movement. we had the brexit vote. we had the trump election victory. the question is, will this unleash a new tsunami of far right populus movements across europe. here in russia donald trump is certainly feeling the love, both from president putin. you have to remember that russian/u.s. relations haven't been this bad since the cold war. all of that is that's the hope according to the kremlin. the russian media has been feasting on this election both in the run up to the vote the propaganda value. they'll be able to portray that. the perception here is that russia will no longer be about democracy. the russian leadership will be
and ukraine as well as in the region here. the big question, of course, is what's putin's next move going to be. he certainly seems to welcome this election victory. the question is, what's he going to do next? >> lucy, give us a sense if you've gotten this reaction from other countries, not just u.s. allies but beyond the middle east, asia. how are they welcoming the news that donald trump will be the next president of the united states? in some cases there have been contentious relations between mr. trump and me middle east, for example. >> certainly trump has scared a lot of nato allies by essentially questioning america's commitment to that alliance. it's a very big question of whether things are going to continue as they have. another big question mark is the iran nuclear deal. this was the corner stone of the obama administration policy over the past few years. trump has called this a disaster.
>> lucy cavanaugh live from moscow. thank you. just ahead, republicans are also retaining control of both houses of congress as the white house is turning red. we'll bring you the results of the big congressional races. that's next. i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. t caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor,
and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, , liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. more "doing chores for mom" per roll more "doing chores for dad" per roll
tammy duckworth defeating republican incouple beck mark kerr. russ fine gold was beat. in a state democrat spot that could be picked up. >> former candidate marco rubio kept his seat in florida beating patrick murphy as did rand paul. senator john mccain won his re-election bid over democrat ann kirkpatrick. pat toomey defeated democratic challenger kate mcginty. kamala harris won. they keep their hold on the u.s. house of representatives although nbc news projects democrats will pick up some seats as well. >> still ahead on "early today," what's next for donald trump. now that he's headed for the white house especially. this is "early today." colleen loves helping the environment. ...and dale, well he loves colleen.

the country and world reaktsz as washington turns red. they're going to keep the house, the senate and 9 white house with donald trump becoming the nation's 45th president. for more on this we're joined by kate martell, political reporter. good to h let's talk a little bit about what's next in terms of what trump can do to bridge the divide that has now engulfed this country. >> what i'm most excited to see next is how does donald trump handle the transition period into the first 100 days. what's most interesting for me about a campaign cycle is that it brings out different sizes of candidates. you have what they say on their teleprompter, but you see what they say when they're tired and
a teleprompter. he didn't stray away. i'm interested to see, will he have democrats as a part of his cabinet? so far the names that have been floated by nbc are rudy giuliani as ag and possibly having newt gingrich as secretary of state. these people are going to be really hard to try to bridge the divide. now if he goes and finds some democrats and pulls those into the cabinet, that could have an interesting game forward. what i'm interested to see in the first get through? there's a lot of republicans and pretty much all democrats that don't agree with donald trump on immigration. that's going to be a tough move. can he find issues that are more bipartisan to start with or will he start with something like immigration that can be so polarizing? that's where we're going to get our indication. >> you see the democrats roll within a trump cabinet and overall, especially with hillary clinton in play here or maybe not in play.
to support me in the past, 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. >> kim: trump wins. you are elect donald trump. the country has spoken and he's been hired. also feeling defeated, hillary clinton supporters walked away quietly after a night of suspense and the results pouring in, they started pouring out. we are still waiting for her concession speech to the nation. we'll carry it live on channel
here from the winners and those who are saying goodbye to congress. >> dana: welcome in. it is 4:30 on this wednesday , the day after the election. and to call it a political earthquake may be an understatement. >> that's what nbc news dubbed it. as we look at the white house there. donald trump going to 1600 pennsylvania avenue. decision 2016 one for the record books. you are waking up to news we have a president elect donald trump. >> dana: let's go live now from new york city. we still have not heard from hillary clinton. she has not given a concession speech. do we have any idea when that might occur? >> yes, we do. we know that donald trump is
