A partial transcript is as follows:

VAN JONES: The country is not what we thought it was. I don’t care who you are, nobody predicted this outcome… It turns out that the outreach from Republicans to African Americans and Latinos was effective. It also turns out… people say [President] Donald Trump says racially inflammatory stuff, he’ll never make any inroads; it turns out that wasn’t true. Also though, it turns out that common ground policies of Joe Biden was able to pull in some suburban folks. There’s something happening where these parties are reaching out and doing all sorts of weird stuff.
