tv   The Intelligence Report With Trish Regan  FOX Business  November 9, 2016 2:00pm-3:01pm EST

2:00 pm
kill it, repeal it and start all over again. this white house saying just, try it. it isn't easy. it is entertaining gelled in our system. a number of folks agree. that is a battle for another day. they're going to talk pleasant tries tomorrow. trish regan, that will be interesting. trish: nothing will be easy. as we've seen he doesn't always take the easy route. quite something. neil cavuto, thank you so much. historic night last night.k andr donald trump defies all the odds and all the polls, becoming america's 45th president of the united states. it is a stunning victory for the billionaire businessman and for those who worried they did not have a voice in america, they did. you do, and change is underway. i am trish regan. welcome, everyone to "the intelligence report." just a short time ago, hillary clinton making her first remarks to her supporters after her defeat.
2:01 pm
watch. all right, she gave what many are saying was a good speech, a classy speech. she, admitted that she had lost and that it was now time for the country to come together and to support a president trump. we're going to get the sound for you in just a moment but i also want to point out president obama is out there today congrat lating his successor inviting him to the white house tomorrow that will be an interesting meeting. >> we're uniting and leading the country. the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. and over the next few months we are going to show that to the world. trish: meanwhile, here is hillary clinton. >> we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. our constitutional democracy
2:02 pm
enshrines the passful transfer of power and we don't just respect that, we cherish it. we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling but some day, someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. [cheering] trish: again, what many are saying was a very good speech from hillary clinton, doing exactly what she needed to do today. we have complete coverage of what to expect from a trump administration, and why the polls and pundits, they all got it oh so wrong, didn't they. first i want to go to our own peter barnes inside of trump tower with a look at trump's busy busy schedule. hey, peter. reporter: he is trying to relax today, trish. if you see behind me across the street, security, nypd, secret service have pulled up big sanitation dump trucks here to provide very quick, quick
2:03 pm
security perimeter around trump tower which is now thes are dense of the president elect. behind me on the street over here, all the foot traffic is diverted over here. it is kind of like a circus. people stopping to take pictures. we have supporters, protesters. as for the candidate himself he is taking it a little bit easy. we heard from him twice since his victory speech early, in the early hours of this morning, both on social media. on twitter where his new handle, still real donald trump trump but says president-elect of the united states. he tweeted such a beautiful and important evening. the forgotten man and woman, women will never be forgotten again. we will come together as ever before. he also sent an email, thank you note, to his supporters today saying that america is a beacon of hope where the impossible is possible. both of these messages repeating the themes from his victory
2:04 pm
speech early this morning. listen. >> i say it is time for us to come together as one united people. i pledge to every citizen of our land, that i will be president for all americans. reporter: it is going to be a lot of work. that is going to be hard because, my favorite t-shirt that i have seen so far today, trish, is a trump supporter who said, welcome president trump. revenge of the deplorables. trish? trish: as you know people feel like they had a chance to take your country back. when you get eight years of what we have seen with very little economic growth, with very you few jobs being created and those that were created essentially being part time or without benefits, people have had enough. and it was remarkable to see that all of these rust belt states said, enough with the traditional democratic elite. peter barnes, thank you so much.
2:05 pm
good to have you here. donald trump won a victory few predicted, everyone, defying not only polls but defying the political establishment. so is how did these experts, so-called experts get it all so wrong? though i would like to point out, we here at "the intelligence report," we have always said from the very beginning that a "brexit"-like victory was possible. in fact even before "brexit" we were talking about how donald trump was reaching out to people in these states that were struggling economically in a way we have not seen frankly anyone do since ronald reagan. we have the director of polling at cato institute. former senator scott brown and and all author of book gop, scott siegfried.
2:06 pm
looks like maggie hassen, former democratic governor, would be new senator. tough race with kelly ayote. overall your thoughts on how people just got this one so darn wrong. what did they miss? >> well, trish, as you know i've been on your show many times and i have said it is his to lose. i said that from the beginning. i felt it as recently as yesterday morning arguing with my wife and family. because the political pundits with all respect, didn't get it right and they didn't get it right because they're not listening to the people in that, they were scared to actually tell people how they actually felt because they would be demonized and vilified. cars would be scratched, their signs would be ripped off. they kept it to themselves. i can't tell how people came up and said, don't tell anybody, i'm voting for donald trump. these are the most unlikely people who would vote for donald trump. trish: i got to tell you i heard the same thing, scott. i heard the same thing. i talked to so many people all over the country, different
2:07 pm
walks of life, from extraordinarily successful to the middle class to not so successful to evangelicals. neil: right across the board and somewhat afraid to say it, but look i really like what he is saying and we haven't heard people say stuff like this. the political elite, the corruption that is perceived to be in this the system, it is corrupted both sides, emily, and i think this is a giant wake-up call to every single one of those lawmakers in washington, is it not? >> i think it is a wake-up call but honestly, this election is about being a low turnout election. we have about 4 to 5 million fewers voters showed up at polls, and far more people voted for third party candidates an on top of that hillary clinton underperformed in virtually every group except for women. this election was lost by hillary clinton. trish: scott brown, making the point that recall are to me, people just don't like her.
2:08 pm
this is part of her problem. that as a candidate, she truly does struggle because, you know, evan, i know you were no donald trump fan, but, he related to people in a way that she couldn't even hope to. she just had sort of no clue what your average american is up against. i said it was like marie antoinette, let them eat cake, buy them a few freebie things along the way, they will vote for me. you need more than that. you need solution. >> donald trump unlike hillary clinton understood people were hurting and felt bad. he saw after last night, the last three of the last four elections at federal level were direct repudiations of barack obama and democratic agenda. democrats just felt let's keep going running on greatness of obamacare. premiums are skyrocketing. donald trump even went out and talked about urban areas where democrats take for granted. i don't think it shifted vote in terms of turnout for her, it kept people from turning out. new york city seven to one democrats to republicans.
2:09 pm
hillary clinton had four 1/2 votes for everyone trump had. trish: this is anecdotal. i would hear these things anecdotally. i would scratch my head, this doesn't make sense what we're seeing on polling data. it feels as though the pollsters are living in some kind of new york city-l.a. bubble. john rawley, this is important thing evan brought up, donald trump was willing to take on the urban communities, minorities and challenges they faced economically and also just in terms of the crime rates there in a way we haven't seen republicans do. they have been afraid to go there. did that work to suppress the minority vote. or simply they didn't like clinton? >> i think hillary clinton ended up being a pretty flawed nominee. there is know doubt about it, you have to tip your hand to donald trump. he is a master communicator. we knew that before he rand. he proofed that and proved it to himself in the process of this campaign. right now we're going through a
2:10 pm
season of reflection and depression among progressives. there is progressive prozac that needs to be handed out right now, there is just almost -- trish: you guys kind of screwed up because you had a candidate, look, i'm not a socialist and i can't ever get on board with any of that, but he is someone that spoke to the mass, resonated with people. talking about bernie sanders. you had a candidate that connected. you chose not to go with him. i often said joe biden would have done a heck of a lot better. why were the elites so willing to back hillary clinton when they should have known all along she would be a challenge? >> well, there were a few black swans that happened in the general election hard for anybody to anticipate. i think they cut both ways. hillary fainting was unlike anything we've seen in the presidential race. the, you know, donald trump and -- trish: i don't know about that. i think people cut her some slack for that. >> two or three things -- trish: walking pneumonia.
2:11 pm
maybe she should have come out. i will -- >> that. two different fbi announcements. trump tapes, these are things that hillary's campaign or maybe just hillary clinton i think they took too much comfort in the trump tape almost ending the campaign at that point. if you looked at a lot of numbers -- trish: they thought that would be the case. senator brown, they wanted donald trump to be the nominee. they figured he would be the easiest guy to beat. boy, they sure got that one wrong too. you backed donald trump from the beginning. what is it that you saw in him all along initially that clearly so many missed? >> well the fact that he is not a quitter. he was basically on an island battling against the democrats, republicans, never trumpers, the media, did it by himself. that showed great courage. i love it people say oh, hillary clinton was flawed candidate. give me a break. two-term senator, former first lady, former secretary of state. >> look at her negatives. >> one of the strongest
2:12 pm
candidates you could have actually gotten when it comes right down to it. trish: scott, come on. she was a flawed candidate. she was a flawed candidate because she didn't -- >> she went through the process like everybody else. went through the process. these are the people you have. trish: she didn't connect with the people. >> yes. trish: by the way, her legacy, think about her husband and nafta, the job losses, 700,000 of them that resulted from nafta. you think about her pushing, another trade agreement, the tpp agreement, and you know, this is not going to go over well in places that rely on american manufacturing. >> yes, but trish, they knew that. the democratic party knew that and they got rid of bernie sanders as you referenced. they put in hillary clinton of the so you live by the sword, die by the sword. here is the very interesting thing that your viewers need to know. harry reid changed rules in the senate to allow for 51 votes. everything except the supreme court, federal judges, cabinet secretaries ambassadors, everybody is 51 votes.
2:13 pm
so when you talk about pushing forth agenda to get this country moving again, president-elect trump will have the tools to do very important things. trish: got the wind at his back. evan, he is going in there and he has got everything. and i also think that the republican party is coming around, including never trumpers because effective hely he saved them, he saved the he saved the party because it could be imploding. they're all there in part because of him. >> yes. we still have a lot of work to do to do outreach and negative very voters, i'm here to help if i needs it. trish: you're on board? >> yes. he is my president. it is my patriotic duty. >> amen. amen. >> but he has ruined gop man among large blocks of voters, hispanic americans, asian-americans, millenials. while republican party has win
2:14 pm
this time, come 2020, 2024, they will pay the price. trish: not necessarily. if he actually improves the economy and people have a better lot in life and they feel as though america is a place of opportunity, the way it should be, then i would think, senator brown, you know he has got some good things going for him in the next round. >> trish, you know, hasn't even served one day and people saying you wait until the next time. give the guy a chance, okay? the house and senate hopefully will work together in bipartisan, bicameral manner to put our country's interests first, americans first, latinos, mexican-americans, muslim-americans, every american will help, hopefully have opportunity they haven't had because of really the big government on individuals and businesses which are putting that wet blanket on growth and development. so there is a lot of things, a lot of work to do so we'll see what happens. trish: liberal left has
2:15 pm
encouraged this divide, encouraged this split and now he has an opportunity to bring everyone together. stay with me. don't go anywhere, emily, evan, john, senator brown, for more on hillary clinton's emotional morning i want to check in with fox news's jennifer griffin. hey, jennifer. reporter: hi, trish. well, we were here at the wyndham new yorker hotel inside the ballroom when hillary clinton conceded and spoke to her staff. there were many, many members of their staff who were visibly upset. there were a lot of hugs, a lot of tears, a very hard-fought race. hillary clinton and tim kaine and ann hole ton's wife were wearing purple the sign they want to bring the country together, red and blue, how divided the country is in this hard-fought election. here is what hillary clinton said. >> i know how disappointed you feel because i feel it too and so do tens of millions of americans who invested their
2:16 pm
hopes an dreams in this -- and dreams in this effort. this is painful and it will be for a long time but i want you to remember this. our campaign was never about the one person or even one election. it was about the country we love and about building an america that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted. reporter: she apologized to her voters for not breaking through that highest, hardest glass ceiling. she said that girls and women who come after her, they will, they will sometime soon. what is interesting, trish, about the poll results that we're now getting it looks like hillary clinton is set to win the popular vote you but of course, as we know, it is it is all important electoral college map is important. the conventional wisdom was hillary clinton had an easier, easier route to the electoral map but in fact it was donald trump who ran the tables. not surprising perhaps for
2:17 pm
somebody who made his life's work casinos, he gambled and he actually, he ran the table. however, one thing that i'm noticing in the polls that came out, other conventional wisdom that has proven to be wrong, the women voters, trump won white woman voters by 10 points over hillary clinton according to the poll results that we have so far. and also the latino vote, donald trump managed to win 29% of latino vote. that is surprising. the president addressed the results today from the rose garden. here is what he said. >> now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election. but the day after, we have to remember that we're actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we're not democrats first. we're not republicans first. we are americans first. we're patriots first.
2:18 pm
reporter: so a sense from democrats as well as republicans that the country will need to do a lot of healing. back to you, trish. trish: they do autopsy reports on this campaign, where do they really think it went wrong? was it her understilt -- underestimating support for donald trump on rust belt states? to think he take pennsylvania. this is territory she should have been hers, she seemed to miss it on trade issues and working class voter issues? reporter: i think it is not that me missed it. i think it was t couldn't address. they were not connecting in the rust belt states. workers there were not buying message of inclusive economy, of inclusive society. and i think one point that the
2:19 pm
media missed, it was something donald trump mentioned repeatedly, was that he had momentum on his side. when you looked at his ralli was getting 10,000 plus people at every rally. she was struggling to get 1500, 2500. only at the very end when she had president and michelle obama at her side she was able to get 10,000 people. there were moments they thought latino vote would make a difference. in arizona she had probably largest turnout in typically red state. there were 15,000 people in the days before the voters went to the polls. that looked like she might be able to use latino vote to have her ride into states where north carolina, florida, and nevada. nevada did turn for her but, florida, and of course north carolina did not. trish: one for the history books i'd say. jennifer griffin, thank you so much. hillary clinton may have lost this election but the biggest loser? may just be the mainstream media who just really never saw this coming.
2:20 pm
i think about the final weeks leading up to this election and liberal media, they kept saying over and over and over again there was no path to 270 for donald trump. you know, here at fox business we said it was going to be tough but we kept telling you over and over and over again don't count him out. one, it is just wrong to do that as member of mead you yaw. you don't call it over until it is actually over, but two, there were paths, but said it would be narrow and there were paths and turned out a quite few of them. how did the mainstream media get this one so wrong? why is it they are so out of touch with how voters really feel? for more, i'm joined by dan gainer from the media research center. dan, they really got it wrong. they got it wrong, big, big, big time. i wonder if they were falling to the equation, they wanted an answer. they wanted hillary clinton in the oval office.
2:21 pm
they wanted this to happen if they thought it kept reporting it was going to happen, that it would? >> well, i think there is some of that. we ran a campaign all this year, don't believe the liberal media. and apparently people didn't believe the liberal media. they didn't listen to hollywood. this is a full-on repudiation of the elites in news and entertainment of the people who said, either vote for donald trump or blank you in videos like hollywood celebrities were doing. the media kept turning this into not a discussion of issues but only discussion of polling and it turns out that a lot of people weren't polled the way they wanted it to be. trish: dan, ain't that the truth, right? people were afraid to say what they really thought. i look at the media sometimes and, you know, i have certain views on this, having worked at different organizations an seen over and over and over again how
2:22 pm
absolutely liberal the bias is. you know, a lot of different reasons i suppose. a lot of english majors feel like we need to be moving increasingly towards socialist type of economy. but for us business reporters out there who know less regulation and lower taxes are good things for business, are good things for the economy, i think that, you know, at least we here we understood a little bit more how people were feeling outside of these bubbles of new york city. outside of los angeles. outside of chicago. do you think this is wake-up call for the media? are they going to start to change? >> i think it should be a wake-up call for the media. they're tied into this new york, l.a., d.c. access. they act like nothing goes on in the let's america. they don't want to cover people in their faith. they don't want to cover people
2:23 pm
in their jobs. they don't want to cover impact of climate regulations devastating coal industry. trish: i don't think they understand economics, and as a result they shy away from these things. they don't understand why you just just wouldn't lower taxes. just why not make government bigger, bigger, keep taxing more? they don't understand at some point you're pushing on a string and they choose not to understand it, you know what, dan? it is complicated. >> which took a economist to society of professional journalists event years ago and he spoke to a room of about 27 journalists. the first question he asked, how many of you have had training in economics or business? one person answered, and he laid into them. he said, how can you cover this when you don't know anything? trish: well, you know, hopefully they're waking up, because they sure did, they sure got this wrong. it was amazing thing to see
2:24 pm
there last night. dan, thank you very much. good to have you here sir. >> pleasure thank you. trish: markets are up! how about that. i had so many investors messaging last night saying this is a buying opportunity. we were watching the futures market plunge 800 points overnight which you can kind of expect only in that the markets, they like the script to be just as so, right? they thought that hillary clinton was going to win. all of sudden they to the this big jolt, but, these are policies, that donald trump put forward that should benefits companies, should benefits markets, lower taxes, less regulation, and it zooms to be sinking in. we're looking at huge rally on wall street. up 230 points. s&p trading up nearly a percent. we're talking about the things donald trump can do to change our economy. obamacare may be top of the list. i will see you right back here
2:25 pm
in two. [accountant] my job is to manage and grow businesses. and i've never seen a rocket ship take off like this. [owner] i'm lindsey. i'm the founder of ezpz. my accountant... ...he's almost like my dad in this weird way. yeah, i'm proud of you. you actually did some of the things i asked you to do the other day (laughs). [owner] ha, ha, ha.
2:26 pm
[accountant] i've been able to say, okay...'s the challenges you're going to have. and we can get it confirmed through our quickbooks. and what steps are we going to use to beat these obstacles before they really become a problem. [announcer] get 30 days free at g new cars. :
2:27 pm
2:28 pm
. trish: check out this rally, everyone, the markets are sharply higher on the heels of last night's postelection free fall. overnight, the markets were tumbling. saw it in the futures market, at one point, dow futures were down 860 points. check out reversal, i had investors saying this is a buying opportunity because they like the policy ideas that donald trump is putting forward, and what do you know? you're looking at a big rally today. the expected massive sell-off didn't happen. big rally on the heels of clinton's concession speech as people breathe a sigh of relief and say okay, there's not going to be crazy litigation involved in this election, she has conceded and everyone is moving on and moving forward. joining me right now kevin
2:29 pm
kelly, kings view asset management scott, and "countdown to the closing bell" anchor liz claman on the floor of the new york stock exchange. what are the guys telling you right now? >> this is interesting, isn't it, trish? overnight, i'm sure you got the same calls, what's going on, the dow is down, what's going to happen to the 401(k)? the markets are fine right now. looking at a gain of 229 points for the dow industrials, more importantly less than 100 points from an all-time point close here at 18,562. all-time high, 18,636. so we're seeing real gains here in most sectors of health care, financials, financials hitting nine month highs right now, trish, air coming out of gold. gold spiked about 50 bucks so all the gold bugs got excited. i've been talking to traders here, they're staying looks a
2:30 pm
little too cute and buttoned up, you never know. trish: you never know, but kevin, he gave really a great speech last night. it was a victorious speech but also a speech that had gravitas. he talked about the need to bring the country together. he's recognizing that that is important. you know, the market had been way down, it started to climb back in the futures market after he spoke, and it seems as though people had the chance to sleep on it, woke up and said okay, today is a new day and there are new opportunities and if you do things like lessen regulation and cut taxes. shouldn't that benefit corporate america? shouldn't that benefit the economy and shouldn't that benefit americans in the way of jobs? >> yeah, you're hitting the nail on the head. this was a referendum on fiscal policies and reforms and starting to see -- trish: and lack of, too, basically done nothing and left it entirely up to janet yellen
2:31 pm
and company but go ahead. >> correct, and what's interesting to note is that donald trump went on the stump in his economic policy at the forefront throughout his entire campaign, and that's why you're seeing companies being rewarded toda he's talked about a 10% repatriation of taxes, that's 2.7 million mergers that can be used for mergers, m&a and capital buyback. trish: and used for factories and the creation of new jobs. the idea, scott, that we leave all this money overseas to benefit other people's economies, instead of bringing it back, that doesn't make any economic sense. >> because of the prohibitive tax policies of the recent and now bye-bye administration which is exactly what donald trump understands. he's got to encourage businesses. he's got to encourage consumers to comfortable. go out and take risks which is exactly what we saw with the voters and what they wanted to say and the markets are saying
2:32 pm
is risk is back on, business development is back on. america is back in business because trump is in the white house. trish: wow. liz, when you're looking at some of the sectors, you mentioned financial stocks are doing well. what about farmer for example, obamacare is very much in focus. >> pharma is in focus, hillary clinton said if she were in office she would put price controls on very expensive drugs for the consumer and i'm not sure donald trump is going to do the opposite but the believes it. have you all the stocks spiking right now. donald trump struck a conciliatory tone to people who do get the short end of the societal stick, don't have a lot of money for drugs. i'm not sure pharma is in the clear. trish: that's a good point, the health care stocks doing well as well. the challenge for them, of course, is in the obamacare environment, they can't compete anymore, and it's causing premiums to skyrocket and so
2:33 pm
many health insurers to get out of the business. >> biotech is up pretty significantly today, look at celgene, that's leading the health care, it used to trade at premium, when all the reform came out from senator warren and senator sanders they got crushed. >> financials as well. trish: let me go to scott and ask you something, the media got it all wrong, the mainstream media said this guy has no chance in h-e-l-l, felt as if the market was getting it wrong, too. you saw last night the way the futures were reacting. but in many ways, i guess the market reacts more quickly and -- how do you interpret this, that we're up 250 when they thought he wouldn't succeed. >> i'll tell you it's a faster reaction or faster recovery than brexit which took a couple days to sort out. look at financials and the things that have happened as
2:34 pm
elizabeth warren fades into the background, so many things exciting in the market that the market is telling you as it looks forward into trump brings this economy that should get your money involved in stocks because we have a clear path finally. trish: wow. thank you so much, the whole team. kevin, scott and liz, liz, i'm going to see you in a little bit. tune in, liz is going to be live from the new york stock exchange from the closing bell at the new york stock exchange. we have a rally on our hands. she's got you covered. breaking news for you, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, the latest washington bigwig to offer his congratulations to president-elect donald trump. he talked about speaker paul ryan and the way forward for republican congress and a republican president. watch him here. >> i know the speaker shares my view that we would like to see the country go in a different direction, and intend to work with him to change courses, to
2:35 pm
change the course for america. trish: i'll tell you, they've got a lot of opportunity. we'll see whether or not they can all work together. they should be incentivized to do so. earlier today, paul ryan said trump's victory has turned politics on its head. ain't that the truth. just a short time ago, the new hampshire secretary of state released the official results for the state's senate race. democratic governor maggie hasan winning against kelly ayotte by only 1,023 votes. talking about a state where every vote counts. right to molly line live in manchester, new hampshire with the latest on the senate race from the live free or die state. it was pretty touch andy go, interesting it remains blue state in the end. >> the live free or die state, the granite state, we have official results from the secretary of state's office we've been waiting for
2:36 pm
regarding this hard fought senate battle. the secretary of state's office showing that maggie hassan, the democratic governor winning by just a little more than a thousand votes. that is a fraction of a percent. she did claim victory early on today before the certified results came out, over the republican senator kelly ayotte, the incumbent. as senator she will always put the people of new hampshire first and work to heal the divisions this election exposed and fight to build a future where all granite staters are shared in economic success. meanwhile, senator ayotte has not conceded. her spokesperson released a statement saying -- party insiders say that this may not be the end that the secretary of state's official t
2:37 pm
mean this is over, that it's possible perhaps likely that the ayotte campaign may seek a recount in this election. we're still waiting to hear from team ayotte to see if that will be what happens next. trish: my goodness, plenty of drama to go around in that little state. thank you so much, moly, keep checking in. moments ago, president obama addressing the nation for the first time since donald trump's stunning victory. after congratulating both candidates after a hard-fought campaign, mr. obama made it clear we are all on the same team and stressed the importance of unity in the wake of the election. here he is. >> everybody is sad when their side loses an election, but the day after, we have to remember that we're actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we're not democrats first. we're not republicans first. we are americans first. trish: all right, everyone, so
2:38 pm
now that donald trump is set to take the white house, by storm, what is going to happen to obama's agenda? throughout his campaign trump vowed over and over to reverse many of obama's signature policies including the iran nuclear deal, immigration reform, so can he do it? obamacare as well? joining me washington examiner senior political analyst michael barone. always good to see you. i think in so many ways this is a rejection not just of hillary clinton and inability to connect and the concerns about corruption, et cetera, but this was a rejection of president obama and his entire economic agenda, which has sent the country absolutely nowhere. how does trump reverse it? >> trish, don't hold back. tell me what you really think. [laughter] >> listen, the signature achievements of the obama administration according to ben rhodes the brother of the
2:39 pm
president of cbs news and the henry kissinger of the millennial generation, deputy national security adviser, obamacare, the iran nuclear deal, they're unpopular in the polls, unpopular in congress, they were sketchily and hastily put together without attention to details. obamacare is in danger of implosion. the iran nuclear deal we made after concession after concession, you don't have tong donald trump is a miracle worker to say that wasn't a good deal and so forth. president obama, after the republicans won majorities in congress said i've got a pen and a phone. i can make regulations. well, some of his regulations like the amnesty of 5 million illegal immigrants, that's been stopped by a federal judge and the 5th circuit court of appeals, the supreme court is not going to intervene. trish: all the executive orders.
2:40 pm
>> every executive order can be repealed by another executive order, and i would expect if the trump transition team is well organized and that's an if given the trump character of the campaign. trish: i don't know, he's got smart people around him, michael. >> we'll see how organized it is. trish: in terms of homeland security. >> one of the things should i be doing to fulfill the promises and the platform planks that mr. trump advocated is a list of things and force them to keep signing the gosh darn things all afternoon before the inaugural balls, after the swearing in. trish: he's got a lot of work to do. he clearly doesn't shy away from work, i think it's interesting he is a deal guy, a deal guy is very different than a washington bureaucrat. as a deal guy he wants to get a deal done but knows the importance of leverage, think about what happened with the iran nuclear deal and president obama is so darn desperate to
2:41 pm
get things done. we gave away pretty much all we had, and i think you can anticipate a little bit more back and forth, can you not, from donald trump? >> i think you can. i think that one of president obama's weaknesses as the president is that he lacks either the inclination or the skill to engage in negotiations with people who have different views. bill clinton had that skill and inclination to a very high degree. george w. bush to an extent that has been forgotten showed he had the inclination and ability to do that in the first six years, in a major way. president obama hasn't done that. donald trump seems to take the view that you should stake out impossible positions first and then negotiate. we'll see how well that goes. trish: see how it goes. if nothing else it will be very interesting for all of us, michael, to watch. you know, he's got a lot of momentum right now. he's got the house and the senate. see what he can get done. and you know what?
2:42 pm
he's got a lot of democrats as well, and as he should, there are many blue collar democrats that crossed over and supported him, and i suppose that there can be some agreement on a lot of the economic issues as a result. >> a lot of democratic senators up for re-election in 2018. trish: they're going to have to work with him. >> they'll have an incentive to work with him. see if they do. trish: interesting times. michael, thank you so much. >> thank you. trish: here on "the intelligence report," we have been saying for over a year, over and over again that donald trump is tapping into the economic pain and the real frustration of many working and middle-class americans. they are facing a struggle and i'll tell you hillary clinton just didn't get it, didn't understand any of it. here he is a billionaire and he got it. trump's victory, a rejection of the establishment, a rejection of the elite. it is america's brexit folks on
2:43 pm
steroids, the revenge of the so-called deplorables. quite a night, it will be quite a four years, we're on it after this. you can't predict the market. but through good times and bad... t. rowe price... ...we've helped our investors stay confident for over 75 years. call us or your advisor. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. complete landscape in lenses. our lenses will be more compact because we use a series of flat lenses and can be used in anything that has a camera lens. nexoptic is taking things from a conceptual stage into the real world. [vo] is it a force of nature?
2:44 pm
or a sales event? the season of audi sales event is here. audi will cover your first month's lease payment on select models during the season of audi sales event. . trish: we're sitting at near highs of the session here, up nearly 300 points, the dow pushing higher and higher and higher despite the dow futures dropping 860 points overnight.
2:45 pm
people waking up and saying this is a buying opportunity with the news of donald trump going to the white house. pharmaceutical and biotech stocks are surging across the board as investors react to president-elect donald trump's pledge to repeal and replace obamacare, and our president-elect promised to spend hundreds of billions of dollars rebuilding america's infrastructure, pushing construction companies and heavy equipment makers higher. some like vulcan up 9%. we're going to be right back with a look at donald trump's victory. this is america's brexit. i'll see you here. these goofy glasses.
2:46 pm
yeah. well, we gotta hand it to fedex. they've helped make our e-commerce so easy, and now we're getting all kinds of new customers. i know. can you believe we're getting orders from canada, ireland... this one's going to new zealand. new zealand?
2:47 pm
psst. ah, false alarm. hey! you guys are gonna scare away the deer! idiots... providing global access for small business. fedex. . trish: you know, from day one, ever since donald trump descended on that escalator in trump tower with melania trump by his side, i have been saying, we have been saying on "the intelligence report" that you can't dismiss him, because donald trump is tapping into something that has been brewing for quite some time. america's frustration with the establishment. america's frustration with the liberal elite agenda, broken borders, trade, economic policies that have failed over and over the working class. here you go. donald trump, who says the
2:48 pm
stuff a lot of people may be thinking somewhere deep in their head but dare not say. many college educated voters in the u.s. are freed to admit they're backing donald trump. it's the same kind of thing you saw with brexit, right? voters want the antithesis, the straight talking millionaire could cut through the cronyism and corruption in washington. it's time for the establishment to tell ted cruz to get on board. trish: there are a lot of similarities between donald trump's win and brexit. coming into the studio last night and the thinking out there in mainstream media is he couldn't do it, much like people thought on brexit. you know like the brits, americans want our country back. we want security. both in terms of borders and in terms of jobs. you need to put america first. what's so controversial about that?
2:49 pm
so should we really be surprised by the outcome? i think not. joining me right now, ned ryun and syndicated radio host chris hahn. chris, what did i tell you! >> you were right, trish, what do you want me to say, all right? congratulations! congratulations, trish regan, and congratulations donald trump. you got it from me, i love you. trish: what i said all along, what i have said from the beginning, you're looking at basically a party that no longer mattered and she missed an opportunity, this should have been her sweet spot. she should have gone for the union workers, rust belt workers, coal miners facing challenges, it was a lemony cake attitude. she said she's going to put the coal miners out of business, how do you win pennsylvania with rhetoric like that?
2:50 pm
>> i think that's going to be a subject of many conversations that are going to be going on both in new york and washington and around the country in democratic party offices for the next couple of months. until they figure that answer, we're going to have a problem getting the country back in four years, i think they will. trish: you know, ned ryun, this is so important, important for democrats to have the conversation, important to do the soul-searching, we should all be on the same page and want america working again, and we want the policies and programs that get the people to work. on that, we should agree. >> exactly. i was encouraged to hear paul ryan. see how long he's going to be speaker. his words it's time to go big and go bold. white house, senate, house, i think what people have missed, there are now 33 republican governors. 70% of the state legislatures are owned by republicans.
2:51 pm
no more excuses now. republicans have been given an opportunity and i think the first 100 days of the donald trump presidency could be amazing if he does what he said he was going to do, repeal obamacare, put up a federalist society judge for the supreme court, begin immigration reform. the thing, trish, they think should not be neglected that he was starting to talk about was inner city outreach and coalition building with the african-american and hispanic communities because guess what? after all the elation of last night, there were wins, it was great. after last night, republicans have lost six of the last popular votes in the presidential. so i want people to be clear and understand they've been given an opportunity. at the same time, there's no resting on their laurels. >> that's what's interesting to me, evan, we've seen so many republican candidates, conservatives shy away from tackling the issues in the inner cities, because you run the risk if you dare to say hey, we got to shake things up, got to change this that you are
2:52 pm
perceived as anti-minority, he's saying we got to change the policies because they do not work. isn't this critical? and i hate to look at this in such a partisan way, ultimately americans are not partisan, they chose the candidate they think can heal the economy, but if the republicans want to continue amassing power, they're going to have to recognize that you got take on some of these issues in a positive way. >> we absolutely do. if you look at what democrats have done in running cities, look at new york city, imposed a plastic bag tax, every time you go to a store, they tax you five cents per bag, paper or plastic and disproportionately hits minority and poor communities in new york city, and the approach of the overwhelmingly democratic establishment here, let them eat cake, it's not a problem, they can bring their own bags. they're concerned about paying their bills. they don't have affordable housing. republicans need to take up the
2:53 pm
mantle of affordable housing and transportation infrastructure. that would really help us. trish: let's just give them something or provide the opportunity so that people can do it for themselves, and emily, that's what they want. they don't want the handouts? >> i agree, i think that talking about these issues, inner city issues as well as rural and suburban issues, they matter. all americans matter. it's great that donald trump took on the issues, that was after he made a lot of comments that were inflammatory and insulting. if he hasn't talked about those problems first, sure, he would have boosted himself higher. trish: he won anyway, which means there could be a lot of change coming. evan, ned, chris, emily. thank you so much. donald trump is promising to put america first, but will it help make it a reality?
2:54 pm
who will be his secretary of state? who will be secretary of homeland security? who will be his attorney general? our own charlie gasparino is joining me on trump's possible cabinet members and, charlie, you know, here we are, and he's got to surround himself with a good team. he knows lots and lots of smart people. who we thinking? >> am i on? trish: you are on, sir? >> there's this weird music. trish: it threw me, too. i was saying, okay, you got all these smart people. rudy giuliani, chris christie, carl icahn he's talking to about the economy. who's in there. >> maybe the music is appropriate for this hit, i don't know. [laughter] >> go from the top and be real clear. this is the back of the envelope choices that i'm hearing from people inside the trump campaign, it could changes it's a bit fluid, but i think this is kind of the people he wants in and around
2:55 pm
him when he becomes president trump not just president-elect trump. we hear rudy giuliani, former mayor of new york city could be homeland security chief or hearing possibly secretary of state. that's a possibility out there. he has -- rudy, from what i understand signaled to the trump people he does not want to be a.g., that will be left to somebody else. a.g. i hear two names, ken feinberg, a guy that's bipartisan. good friends with rudy, and chris christie is as much in the running, as much as his name was mentioned in the bridgegate scandal, they're not indicting him. those are the names for a.g. as we reported on your show and others and cavuto, trump is signaling he wants finance chair steve men uchin, i think that one is set in stone. we're hearing jeff sessions as secretary of defense, and
2:56 pm
here's the kind of interesting, as you know the senator from alabama, was a longtime trump supporter. trish: one of the first to come out. >> one of the first to come out. here's interesting, his chief of staff, the initial name i've heard was rnc chief reince priebus as championship. but i'm also told that one of his campaign managers, steve bannon, the former ceo or current ceo of breitbart is in the rinning for that. trish: steve bannon helped him out in the final walks along with his campaign manager kellyanne conway, i would imagine they got to be keepers. >> i've been told, there are people inside that told me bannon is the number one. >> i got to leave it there, charly. >> woody johnson, ambassador to wherever he wants to be. trish: quick break and we're back after this. thanks, charlie. or stop to find a bathroom?
