"new york post," the headlines, president trump. they said it couldn't happen. but it did. speaking of president trump, several hours ago, about 3:00 a.m. new york time, he addressed his supporters at the midtown hilton, president elect donald trump sounding very presidential
6:01 am
and at the same time very humble. take a listen. >> i've just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us. it's about us, on our victory, and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. she fought very hard. >> every single american will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no long longer. >> president trump addressing the country. as for hillary clinton, she'll be addressing the country about 30 minutes from now. last night at the javits center, a few blocks from here, her headquarters for the election night, people were living, all of her biggest supporters from around the country including
6:02 am
several from the bay area invited by secretary clinton here to new york for a supposed party. it was no party, they left disappointed. they were in tears and really they were in shock. we spoke with some of the bay area contingency here in new york about their sadness and really their surprise of these results. >> i'm hoping he would govern in a different way than he campaigned and his rhetoric, particularly on a world stage would be dramatically different than anything he's done up till now. >> i knew there was some portion of america that felt that way, but i didn't realize it was so large. so that's been very surprising. >> reporter: that's some of the raw emotion coming out of the hillary clinton headquarters a few hours ago. we just got an update. hillary clinton we were expecting her to smeek in about 30 minutes. it's been pausched out one hour. pacific time, she'll be speaking
6:03 am
at 7:30 a.m. we, of course, will cut in to our coverage and bring you that speech live when it hams. that's the latest from times square, guys, back to you in the bay area. >> raj, we're glad to have you. we know it was a long night. one question real quickly, we were hearing reports that hillary clinton was working on two speeches, one if she won, one if she lost. yet she has president made any remarks until, as we're expection, 7:30 this morning. any idea as to why? >> reporter: i think it's fairly standard for president candidates to outline two different speeches. the reason she didn't speak last night, two reasons, one, the javits center, hillary clinton headquarters was booked for another event. they needed everyone out of there. they were breaking down at around 3:00 a.m. that wasn't possible. i think they were waiting to see perhaps if there was a chance if they could win and they weren't willing to concede publicly until this morning. in a short answer, i think she
6:04 am
was playing the waiting game. now she'll be addressing the nation in about an hour. >> exactly. we're now playing the waiting game to hear what she has to say. raj mathai live in new york, thank you very much. news of the trump victory leads to chaos in the streets from seattle to los angeles. in oakland protest rs lit trash cans on fire bringing traffic to a standstill. >> quite a scene there. "today in the bay's" pete suratos is joining us live from oakland. long night there, anger filled the streets. what's it like now? >> good morning, sam and laura, the streets are clear, but there are plenty of unhappy protesters. shortly after it was declared that donald trump will be the next president of the united states, we're on 12th street and broadway. a lot of that activity happening on broadway. you can see off in the distance, a boarded-up window, the wells fargo building on 12th and broadway between 7th and 24th
6:05 am
street just before midnight. we've been told there were reports of them chanting "not our president." you see trash cans and be brie in the street that clues had to clean up. multiple businesses were vandalized. no injuries to protesters and police officers. now, this next video i want to show you is what happened around the same time just after midnight. there were reports of protesters in berkeley running on to the 24 east on-ramp at telegraph avenue that's when a protester gets hit by a car. that protester is recovering in the hospital from those injuries. chp warns while they want folks to exercise free speech, going this route puts everyone in danger. oakland police say they'll continue to monitor the situation throughout the day. the big ticket item they're looking for is a protest at 5:00 p.m. taking place in downtown oakland. they're expecting big crowds
6:06 am
again. pete suratos for taish. >> 6:05. in the skbay meantime, demonstrations at san jose state university. more than 400 students crowded outside dorms giving a series of spontaneous speeches. at one point a fight broke out between protesters and several trump supporters who showed up carrying pro trump signs and an american flag. it was quickly stopped by police. >> they made a run for it. they sprinted as fast as they could away from the crowd. luckily they had a good enough head start because there was 20, 30 people chasing them right after trying to basically attack them and really do some damage. hundreds of students protested following trump's viktsry. plips say at least 500 people swarmed around ucla earlier this morning. protests at uc santa cruz, irvine and san diego. at one point stock market futures called for a worse day
6:07 am
on the market since 9/11. >> scott mcgrew watching the numbers on wall street for us. >> there's a lot to worry about what's happening here at home. we're going to bring you the open bell live. we'll keep you updated on the stock market numbers let's talk about for a minute what this means beyond stocks. let me say right off the top, we're speculating. we're speculating based on the very words mr. trump has said in the past, his promises during the campaign, the best predictor of the future is past behavior. mr. trump has promised a number of things like firing janet yellen. that's not exactly how that happens. but he can decline to renew her term in 2018. the fed has an interest rate meeting next month. other promises and things that may be ahead, mr. trump talked about military action in the middle east. that could affect the stock market, we'll be watching that today. certainly would affect oil prices as well.
6:08 am
interest rates, mr. trump has in the past talked about not paying back american debt. that would send interest rates very, very, very high indeed. he's talked about increasing tariffs and taxes on silicon valley products, like iphones, things made in china by as much as 40%. he's taurkd about getting rid of the h-1b immigration visa. that would affect silicon valley as well. will these things come true? we don't know how many promises turn into action. we don't know what congress will let him do. people might say that list is alarmest, it's crying wolf. let me remind you at the end of the story the buy gets eaten by the wolf. >> we, o of course, are a government of checks and balances, so we'll have to see. as for what else happened overnight, california voters say yes to legalizing recreational marijuana in this state. the yes vote holding a decisive

6:32 am
there you see up 69 points. never in stock market history have we seen such an enormous strange in what's happening on the markets. we were going to tell you all about circuit breakers, the things that protect the market from huge losses. these are unnecessary, down seven, down 13, down 20%. so far irrelevant as we watch the markets move higher, absolutely abc stoppishing news. i do want, sam and laura, to talk anti things that are not the stock market. in the coming days, the coming months, the coming years, we are going to need to talk about h-1b visas, mortgage, bond prices, et cetera. but for now, nothing to see here, folks. >> very remarkable because overnight -- >> down 800. >> it was amazing. so up about 70 so far. so we'll continue to watch that.

6:34 am
going to be interesting to see if and how president elect trump pivots and embraces the bay area and the silicon valley. so far he has not. compare that with hillary clinton and draum for so many years, the close relationship with the silicon valley. a lot of nervous business people in the tech sector are concerned to see if donald trump reaches out. a few hours ago in his victory speech, he sounded very humable and presidential. >> i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans, and this is so important to me. for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, i'm reaching out to you for your guide dance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.

local police will corporate to monitor the situation throughout the day. right now we'll send it over to chuck coppola where there was a similar protest taking place in the south bay. chuck? >> reporter: pete, here at san jose state university after donald trump's acceptance speech, the statue behind me became a gathering point for some 400 students who gathered around 1:00 a.m. they clung to the statues of tommy smith and john carlos famous for their black power salute during the 1964 olympics. when three trump supporters showed up with trump signs and an american flag, a fight broke out. at least one student was punched repeatedly. a bystander took pictures of the incident on his cell phone. the student was chased off by a crowd of 30 people who surrounded him and two other trump supporters. one bystander had this reaction.
6:39 am
>> as diverse as we are, we just can't support that. that racism has to go, ignorance and bigotry got to go. after obama i don't understand how we can have a trump. that don't even make sense. >> campus police officers were called to the scene and the trul supporters managed to escape. no arrests were made. a crowd dispersed peacefully around 2:00 this morning. chuck coppola, "today in the bay." at 6:389, other races we've been following. ro khanna leading mike honda. ro khanna sounding confident in front of hundreds of supporters if free month last night, a much different result than the first time around. back in 2014 khanna lost this congressional race to the eight-time congressman mike honda. khanna believes endorsements from lieutenant governor gavin
