Now it’s difficult to count all the ways Trump remade the game: the huckster came off more real than the scripted political pros. The cable-news addict made pollsters look like chumps. The fabulist out-shouted journalists fighting to separate fact from falsehood. The demagogue won more Latino and black votes than the 2012 Republican nominee. [TIME Magazine]
LOVE OR HATE Donald J. Trump, he has vanquished every foe and put others on notice in the most outrageous, historic and outlandish presidential victory in modern times.
President-elect Trump and his team are just getting started.
From the Washington Post
Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said in an interview Monday that she is considering leading a group being formed that will provide “a surround-sound super structure” to bolster the new administration’s political and policy goals.
People familiar with the planning said that some helping organize the as-yet unnamed group have a working motto: “Unleash the Potential,” a moniker to describe the quick start they are expecting of Trump administration and the Republican-led Congress in the first part of 2017. The new president and GOP leaders are preparing to enact sweeping changes to the nation’s tax, immigration and health-care policies.
[…] “He’s going to be a very active president who wants to accomplish things quickly,” she said, adding: “We want to honor that by being ready.” Conway said she and her family are considering relocating to Washington from New York and have been house-hunting.
Barack Obama had OFA but as POTUS he never used it for wider legislative pushes, which is what the Trump group in waiting has planned.
We were in Washington, D.C. last weekend and the inaugural stand is going up slowly and preparations in the tri-state area are gearing up.
Donald Trump earned Time’s Person of the Year, whether you detest him or embrace him. No one has reset the political, business and international worlds more convincingly. Just ask Boeing, a company that found out the hard way what it’s like to directly challenge Trump.
Welcome to Trump’s America, a place Democrats and Republicans live and many on both sides don’t recognize.
Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!
