11:40 pm
edition of "nightline." we're taking a look at the election that shocked the world. donald j. trump, a real estate magnate and reality star with zero government or military experience will soon be our 45 the president. how did he pull this off? why did so many pundits and pollsters fail to see it coming this what happens next? we begin here tonight with abc's terry moran. >> reporter: they said he couldn't do it. they said he wasn't qualified. even the polls seemed to give him no chance. but early this morning -- >> the president-elect of the united states of america, donald trump! >> reporter: the man who so often hurled invective during the campaign. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> reporter: sounding positively, well, presidential. >> i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans.
11:41 pm
>> reporter: a historic moment for the first time ever, americans elected a commander in chief who had no prior experience in government or in the military. it was a bombshell so many didn't see coming. >> words cannot describe how shell shocked the clinton campaign is right now. they were celebrating the night before on that last campaign flight from raleigh to new york, they were celebrating, drinking champagne. >> donald trump was being advised he would have to conced day that he was likely not going to win this election. >> so why was the polling so wrong? the polls were very tight, but there's two data points to look at. one, white men without a four-year college degree came out for donald trump in historic numbers. and millions of democrats who voted for barack obama in 2008 and 2012, they did not come out on election day for hillary clinton, or at all. >> reporter: as speaker of the house and long-time trump critic
11:42 pm
>> donald trump heard a voice out in this country that no one else heard. he connected with -- he connected in ways with people no one else did. he turned politics on its head. >> the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. >> reporter: some of those forgotten men and women today sounding jubilant. across the country. >> i'm happy. my husband woke me up at 3:00 a.m. this morning. i was shocked. >> how are you feeling this morning? >> i am happy. >> why is that? >> the new president. and he's not a politician. he promised to feed the people, something she never did. >> i'm thrilled, ecstatic that donald trump has won. i almost can't believe it. i really thought we were looking at a big hillary landslide tonight. >> reporter: the victory particularly felt in the parts of the country hardest hit by the recession. >> how many of you have been affected by job loss? pretty much everybody.
11:43 pm
pennsylvania a few weeks ago where students were holding mock elections and they felt their voices and those of their often out of work parents or friends were not being heard. >> how are we going to run the country together? >> why don't we split the country into two different countries? >> well, they tried that. that didn't work in the civil war. >> reporter: today that girl, brooke is her name, and her class, full of hope for what a trump presidency might do for them. >> he i jobs that were taken away. >> trump understood that there were people who felt left out by the government, left out by business, left out by culture, left out by everybody. and he was including them. >> reporter: but the force that elected trump and reaffirmed republican control of congress was broader than just people who have lost their jobs. >> he didn't get blown out among women, and he did do well among latinos compared to the previous candidate, mitt romney.
11:44 pm
not necessarily voting along purely ideological grounds. >> they went for some of the most liberal ballot anybody gives transfer a higher minimum wage. legalize marijuana. i think you saw ticket-splitting of a unique sort that didn't follow any ideology. >> crooked hillary takes their money like a big sellout! >> reporter: the trump campaign drew support from the wealthy too. consider the trumpettes, women who say they've raised hundreds of thousands of dolrs campaign. >> okay, just got off the plane, so exciting. >> reporter: earning a ticket to trump's victory party. >> the main ballroom with all the real people -- >> reporter: this morning still exuberant after a night celebrating, hopeful that her candidate will unite the country. >> right now, donald trump needs to get this country back together. and he's going to do that. all the people that have been scared of the things he's going to, do they're going to be so happy because they're going to
11:45 pm
this and prosperity. >> the sun is up and i know everybody had a long night. i did as well. >> reporter: donald trump said he wants to repudiate much of the obama legacy. but today the president asking america to give trump a chance while gently reminding the president-elect about the values he needs to remember. >> a sense of unity, a sense of inclusion, a respect for our institutions, and a respect for each other. i hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition. and i certainly hope that's how his presidency has a chance to begin. >> reporter: for trump, now comes the work of putting together a team. some early hints of who that might be up on the stage with him last night. >> he's had so few political pros around him. there's chris christie, there's rudy giuliani, there's newt gingrich, there's senator jeff sessions. once you get beyond that list? it's hard to imagine who he populates an administration with. >> reporter: one of the things his transition team is going to
11:46 pm
president-elect's impending court date, defending himself against allegations of fraud in his dealings with trump university. but his team's efforts will mostly focus on pushing ahead his ambitious agenda. >> donald trump will get his choice on the supreme court automatically because of the one vacancy that will not be filled before he takes office. >> reporter: during the campaign trump promised a long list of the things he plans to do. >> we're going to build a wall. obamacare has to go. a trump administration will renegotiate nafta. mexico's going to pay for the wall. i will knock the hell out of isis. we will suspend the syrian refugee program. we will double our growth and have the strongest economy anywhere in the world. >> it's hard to find major issues outside of maybe tax reform where donald trump and paul ryan, for instance, see eye to eye. so i think there's a coalition government between conservative republicans, people like paul ryan, like mitch mcconnell, and
11:47 pm
>> reporter: however contentious, whatever comes next, this president-elect began this next chapter of his incredible journey with inclusion. >> now it's time for america to bind the wounds of division. we 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. >> reporter: for "nightline" i'm terry moran in new york. next, as her supporters hit the streets in protest tonight, what does the future hold for hillary clinton? later, key moments from donald trump's astonishing campaign. ? my hero zero. ? ? such a funny little hero ? ? but till you came along ?

11:53 pm
turning instead to grief and bewilderment from the streets to the airwaves. >> as usual, men can get away with anything and women can get away with nothing. >> the reckoning the morning after on "the view." hosts joy behar and whoopi goldberg letting loose. >> when you scare children by saying, you're not going to let them stay in the country, you're going to separate them? chirp don't children don't know what you're talking about. >> reporter: we're in a cab in manhattan heading toward a protest smack d and trump tower. perhaps only after this historic loss signs that clinton's message had connected. >> this loss hurts. but please, never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it. >> fighting for what's right is a line straight out of hillary clinton's speech this morning where she was calling for unity and embracing a trump administration. but clearly her supporters, some
11:54 pm
we are literally hiking up the canyons of manhattan following this protest. it's a smattering of black lives matter, southern poverty law center, a number of colleges. hillary clinton took to the stage to concede this morning, apologizing to her supporters early on. >> i'm sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our >> hillary clinton acknowledged what i have to assume was the hardest thing for her, which was reaching out to women and especially girls. she knows how deeply, deeply disappointed they are, that there is not a woman president. >> reporter: and offering words of hope and encouragement for the next generation of girls. >> i know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling. but someday, someone will.
11:55 pm
>> the concession speech was very emotional for many people in that room. there were staffers, many of whom have worked for her for years and years, crying, consoling each other. >> they were just in such shock. they did not know how to handle it or how to react. >> reporter: all this after a long night of uncertainty gave way to one of the most monumental presidential upsets in modern history. >> i think maybe the biggest factor is simply an error in trying to figure out who would turn out to vote. the obama coalition did not turn out in anywhere near the numbers they turned out in 2008 and 2012. >> reporter: this presidential race was the most divisive in recent memory, splitting voters along the fault lines of whites versus nonwhites. urban versus rural. men versus women. the scene at clinton's election night headquarters, one of devastation. supporters slowly trickling out
11:56 pm
