Transcript for Trump to Hold First Press Conference as President-Elect
And you saw the first lady and you saw Malia Obama and everybody said where is Sasha? He talked about his daughter, as well. We found out she was back at the white house studying for a test that she has this morning. Priorities, man. Come on. Being first daughter doesn't get you out of a test. We saw the picture, the family photo Michelle Obama posted last night. She tweeted last night talking about how proud she is of all that they had accomplished as a family together, these eight years, and finishing by -- Sasha and Malia, saying she stayed home and studied for her test. Let's talk to Jon Karl about this. Right now there were so many different speeches in one last night for president Obama but at the heart of it we remember him coming often the national scene, what values holes all americansing to. He was talking last night about what drives them apart. This is his Obama realist speech. He believes essentially American democracy, something is fundamental as that is under assault right now. He's worried about racial divisions, political divisions. He's worried about so much of what was behind the election. He never directly attacks Donald Trump, but it was a pretty profound warning and, George, overwhelmingly it was the message I am not going away. He will be around here. He's been pretty open about the fact that the election results in November have changed his plans going forward about how involved to be. Meanwhile, the news of the day we just talked to kellyanne Conway about these allegations about Donald Trump. You heard what senator sessions said yesterday in his hearing about the Russians and a big, big hearing today, Rex tillerson, president-elect trump's nominee for secretary of state. We'll get those exact questions, as well. You know, a few weeks ago I would have said Rex tillerson is probably the one that will be attacked hardest. This will be a tough hearing. But tillerson has been telling senators privately that he understands that Russia is a threat, that he will be tough on Russia despite the fact that as the CEO of ExxonMobil he had dealings with Russia, he was close to Putin because he was in effect a business partner on a lot of projects, but we've seen excerpts of his speech of his opening remarks and he talks about how Russia poses a danger and that our allies are right to be alarmed by the fact that Russia is trying to be a resurgent Russia in the region. Boy, so much pent up demand for the president -- We haven't had a full-blown press conference from Donald Trump since July. A lot of questions. We will cover it at 11:00 A.M. Eastern. Now we have to move on. We move on from politics to that dangerous weather out west.
