from the streets of washington to donald trump's headquarters in new york as well as chicago, boston, philadelphia and many other cities. thousands turned out in protest. refusing to give up the fight, thousands of protesters gathered outside the trump tower in manhattan to voice their frustration at the election results. and chantingrs anti-trump slogans, many expressed worries the billionaires presidency foster racism and intolerance in an already divided country. >> i think donald trumps ability to mobilize racist thought is incredibly terrifying. insurgent to be out here today. urgent to be out here today. >> we want them to know that we're pissed. >> thousands took to the streets
to express their anger at the elections outcome. around 1000 people were blocked by police as they attempted to gather around the trump tower in chicago. an emotional crowd also held a vigil outside the white house in washington. angry and shocked, many remain determined to make their voices heard. >> these next four years are a call to action to each and every one of us. if you have been sitting on the sidelines, it's time to mobilize. >> during his campaign, trump said he would build a wall along the mexican border and deport all illegal immigrants residing in the u.s. he also said he would temporarily ban all muslims from entering the country. a triumphant donald trump will head to the white house to talk with the current man in the job, barack obama. saidg the campaign obama the celebrity businessman was uniquely unqualified to replace
him at the oval office. on wednesday he altered his tone by saying all americans should now, root for trump. talks will focus on the handover of power. let's bring in our international affairs editor. we saw pictures in that report of people protesting in hillary clinton's heartland. people clearly upset by trump's win and not ready to share obama's new spirit that everyone should now back donald trump. this meeting today at the white house should be a new chance to diffuse those tensions. suppose both men have tried to defuse those tensions in their respective statements yesterday. they obviously haven't succeeded yet because it's not something that just simply evaporates in the space of a day. --tainly they are learning
laying the groundwork for some sort of reconciliation. trump and obama in their respective speeches yesterday also tried to preempt any awkwardness at this meeting today at the white house. ferocioussome very fo things about each other during the campaign. given the tone of their speeches yesterday we can expect at least a relatively civil tone at the white house. if you want awkward watch the encounter between melania trump and michelle obama. don't forget melania trump plagiarized some of michelle obama's speech when she addressed the republican national congress. this is just one date in the transition. there is still plenty of room for new bad blood to be created
between obama and the trump transition depending on what president obama actually does with his remaining time in office. there has been a lot of comment that he may try to push through a free trade deal with the pacific region. that is something donald trump firmly opposes. if obama fully uses his power in the remaining time allotted to him that sets up tensions with the trump transition team. beens: world leaders have reacting. we heard the japanese prime minister has booked time with trumpet in new york next week. what other reaction have we had from asia? the japanese side of wasgs, prime minister abe one of the first foreign leaders to secure a meeting with the president-elect. he's going to be seeing him in new york next week. that will be very closely watched by allies and foes alike. japan is a traditional partner for the u.s.
japan relies partly on the u.s. for its own security. these are the china, north korea. trump said some things during the campaign that were troubling for the japanese. japan not paying its share for the american security umbrella. we will have to see what comes out. will there be demands for japan to pay more for its own security? what will the future be of this transpacific partnership. that's a very important plank of program at's home. that will be a bellwether of how trump treats traditional u.s. allies. you can bet korea and china will be watching that meeting very
closely. thomas: thank you very much. just a few months to go before he's officially inaugurated in washington. donald trump is already thinking about who he wants to have on his team when he becomes president in january. catherine clifford explains. >> while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. [applause] we are going to work immediately for the american people. >> he will be the first u.s. president with no government or military experience and his plans for his administration are controversial to say the least. he says he wants to use his experience as a billionaire businessman to boost employment and create growth. and bring in others with background in trade and commerce rather than politics. for example, his campaign is considering the cofounder of the company lucas oil for interior secretary. ad his finance chairman,
goldman sachs veteran as treasury secretary. mike pence could now become one of the most influential vice presidents in history, bringing the political experience trump himself lacks. he is also likely to reward those who supported him throughout his campaign with high profile. newt gingrich is a candidate for secretary of state. former republican presidential candidate ben carson is among names for how secretary. rudy giuliani is rumored to be a leading candidate for attorney general. chris christie is also a contender. sarah palin has expressed her interest in a cabinet position. officials aregn reported to be worried about finding high-profile women for his cabinet after the president-elect's past comments about women. against thefight
