thanksgiving vacations. and is ignorance bliss? the guy who says he still doesn't know who won the presidential election. clinton or trump. we'll talk to him exclusively today, saturday, november 19th, 2016. ?? >> celebrating 27 years at the "today" show. >> all the way from p.a. >> spending my 13th birthday at the "today" show. >> you're looking at 50 years of friendship right here. >> hey, "today" show! >> we are happy to be here with that crowd and you inside. good morning. welcome back to "today" on saturday morning here in front of the big apple with a lot of friendly faces waving hello to everybody back home. colder weather is coming. we hope to get ready to bundle up.
8:02 am
they have programming outside. they see themselves on the monitors, they just go nuts. >> hello, everybody. >> it is like an nba game. you see it on the jumbotron. >> nicest people. we have to begin with news. president-elect donald trump with just over two months to go until he takes the oath of office is at his new jersey golf club today meeting with former presidential nominee mitt romney, this one day after he agreed to settle a multimillion dollar lawsuit against trump university. nbc's kelly o'donnell is in bridgewater, new jersey, near trump international with the latest. good morning, kelly. >> reporter: good morning, stephanie. this is a chance for the president-elect to do house cleaning and turn his weekend home into a home office. you're right, he will be meeting mitt romney today. that is significant because of the fierce criticism that romney levelled at trump during the campaign season and upon his election.
8:03 am
best and hopes for how he will lead the country. this is a chance, aides say, for them to share ideas and talk about things and maybe not a cabinet post, but they leave open the door for that possibility. in addition to that, trump settled three lawsuits related to trump university. the amount attached to this is $25 million, which will be distributed among 6,000 former these cases. there is no admission of wrongdoing. the timing is notable. one of the cases is supposed to advance later this month. and this is sort of clearing the decks before he moves in to the white house. unusual for trump to settle. that is not his typical way of handling business. this takes this issue where there's been so much criticism off the table. another unexpected thing happened when his vice president-elect, the man he asked to run the transition,
8:04 am
taking a little time for himself and family. mike pence went to see the broadway smash "hamilton." as he walked in he was noticed by others. there was applause and also some very noticeable boos as he took his seat in the theater. after the production, something highly unusual. the star of the show, brandon victor dixon who plays aaron burr, after the curtain call, spoke on behalf of the whole cast asking him really with a message about inclusion saying many americans are fearful about the new administration and how it will handle civil liberties and imploring him to work for all americans. really different. a piece of the show that had never been seen before. it gives you a sense of the politics of this weekend and this transition. we expect that donald trump will also have meetings with some of the top advisors here as well. we expect to get briefings from senior staff about the upcoming
