President-Elect Donald J. Trump Intends to Nominate Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to Serve as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency

BY GREAT AGAIN

 President-elect Donald J. Trump today announced his intent to nominate Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to serve as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. “For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn. As my EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt, the highly respected Attorney General from the state of Oklahoma, will reverse this trend and restore the EPA’s essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe,” said President-elect Donald Trump. “My administration strongly believes in environmental protection, and Scott Pruitt will be a powerful advocate for that mission while promoting jobs, safety and opportunity.”

For the first time since the November election, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad met with President-elect Donald Trump. That meeting took place Tuesday in New York City at Trump Tower, where the president-elect has been meeting with prospective appointees. The two are reportedly talking about Branstad's possible role in the Trump administration. Trump has previously hinted that he'd like the Iowa governor to be the next ambassador to China, given his extensive work with the Chinese over the years. Branstad told reporters inside of Trump Tower that they discussed many topics in the meeting, but wouldn't go into detail. Branstad also said he's looking forward to Trump's rally in Des Moines on Thursday. He said he expects a lot of Iowans to attend.

Retired Admiral James Stavridis, dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University and reportedly a contender to be secretary of State, called his Thursday meeting with President-elect Donald Trump “terrific.” Stavridis said. “We talked about the world, we talked about defense, we talked about [the] state of our military, we talked a lot about cybersecurity, and overall I found it to be a very interesting and a very informed conversation on the part of the president-elect,” Stavridis declined to say whether he is being considered to lead the State Department. “When I first heard there was a short list, I thought they were referring to a list of short people, which is, you see, I would definitely be on that list, but in terms of any job, I would say, why don’t you talk to the folks upstairs at Trump Tower.”

BY BUSINESS INSIDER

Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago personally delivered a letter to President-elect Donald Trump asking him to leave one of President Barack Obama's programs in place that shields certain immigrants from deportation. "Ending DACA would disrupt the lives of close to one million young people, and it would disrupt the sectors of the American economy, as well as our national security and public safety, to which they contribute," Emanuel wrote. "That they were working hard towards the American dream, and that all of us fundamentally believe that these are students, these are also people who want to join the armed forces, they gave their name, their address, their phone number, where they are, they're trying to achieve the American dream — it's no fault of their own their parents came here. They are something we should hold up and embrace."

Roger Stone, a master of 'dark political arts', longtime ally of Donald Trump, Stone who was recently banned from CNN for an anti-Hillary group named "C.U.N.T." during the 2008 election and the same man who called 'Ted' Cruz a "Dumb son-of-a-bitch" Is releasing a hot new book entitled: "How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution" and should be released by inauguration day 2017. "I'm so busy on deadlines for a book i am writing to try to get out on inauguration day. i have been sent 100 links i need to read. i can't assess how real it is, i just don't know. i understand the outline of the story. i am, as you might guess, not a great fan of john podesta, since he accused me of being a traitor." When asked if Donald Trump will like the new book stone said. "I think he will, although it is going to be in the teddy white style, an analysis of how he won the election. I think there is some democrats who will enjoy the book, a few republicans who don't like the book. I'm trying to use the same kind of big picture style. If you go back and use at the making of the president in 1960, john kennedy is the hero of the book."
