Feisty Trump Says Democrats Are Ready to Stop ‘Endless Gridlock

Congressional Democrats are ready to work with the president-elect to break Washington’s era of gridlock, Donald Trump said Thursday evening during a bombastic rally in Ohio. Trump bounced from prepared remarks to his off-the-cuff style in a feisty event in Cincinnati, Ohio, the first stop on his “Thank You” tour to states that helped him win the presidency. He hammered the media and anyone who suggested he couldn’t cobble together the 270 electoral votes needed... Read more

President Barack Obama told Rolling Stone, in an interview that took place the day after the election, what advice he would give President-elect Donald Trump in their meeting following his win.

Mike Pence's key role in building Team Trump

Donald Trump's incoming administration is increasingly becoming Mike Pence's dream team. Trump's decision to tap Seema Verma -- Pence's own Medicaid policy consultant in the Indiana governor's office -- to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services provided the clearest evidence yet of the prominence Pence and his conservative allies will have in Trump's Washington. Trump's choices so far have reflected Pence's politics -- potentially proving helpful on Capitol Hill, where the Indiana governor and former... Read more

Stan Greenberg was still fuming 15 days after the election. He used words like “political malpractice” and “incompetent” to express his puzzlement at the outcome. “How could they lose Michigan with 10,000 votes!” he exclaimed in an interview, and Wisconsin too, he added, where the Clinton campaign—though flush with money—put in very little advertising. For Greenberg, the Democratic pollster who helped engineer Bill Clinton’s presidential victory in 1992, Hillary Clinton’s loss in these Rust Belt states took... Read more

Trump slams 'scam' Jill Stein election recount effort

President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday ripped what he termed a "scam" effort from Green Party nominee Jill Stein aimed at requesting recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. In a statement labeling the recount request "ridiculous," Trump said "the people have spoken and the election is over." "And as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, 'We must accept this result and then look to the future,'" Trump said. Trump highlighted the fact he won the... Read more

Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say

Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an interview with RT in 2013, said that he wanted to “break the Anglo-Saxon monopoly on the global information streams.”  The flood of “fake news” this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation. Russia’s increasingly sophisticated... Read more
