Donald Trump Shakes Up Transition, Puts Pence in Charge
He’s changing the lineup. Vice president-elect MIke Pence will now lead Donald Trump’s transition team, in a surprise Friday shift, demoting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie from the post. The move came a day after the Republican’s extraordinary summit with President Obama at the White House. Obama said afterward that they had an “excellent conversation” about wide-ranging policy issues. Trump thanked the president, calling him a “very good man.” Meeting with congressional leaders, Trump vowed a tax-slashing, Obamacare-dismantling agenda. Meanwhile, “Never Trump” Republicans are starting to warm toward working with his administration on foreign policy.
