BY GREAT AGAIN

President-elect Donald J. Trump today announced his intent to nominate General James Mattis, retired U.S. Marine Corps four-star general, to serve as Secretary of the United States Department of Defense. Among the most decorated and legendary leaders in our country, Gen. Mattis has spent his life defending America in numerous theaters of war. “I am proud to nominate General James Mattis to Secretary of Defense,” said President-elect Trump. “He is one of the most effective generals and extraordinary leaders of our time, who has committed his life to his love for our country. General Mattis is the living embodiment of the Marine Corps motto, ‘Semper Fidelis,’ always faithful, and the American people are fortunate that a man of his character and integrity will now be the civilian leader atop the Department of Defense. Under his leadership, we will rebuild our military and alliances, destroy terrorists and face our enemies head on, and make America safe again.” Mattis in a separate comment says "I am honored by President-elect Trump's nomination and his respect for the brave men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States,” said Gen. Mattis. “To the President-elect, our soon to be commander in chief, to our military personnel, to the talented civilians in the Department of Defense, and to the American people, I pledge the best of my abilities to ensuring a strong and secure America.”

BY TAMPABAY

Attorney General Pam Bondi met in New York on Friday with President-elect Donald Trump, and left Trump Tower smiling but saying very little about whether she's being considered for a White House job. Bondi declined to say what she and Trump talked about. "I can't discuss that," Bondi said. "I'm a member of the executive transition and I just don't think that's appropriate for anyone on the team to be talking out of school." Bondi continued "I'm on the transition team and we're doing everything we can to help him put the best people in place. So right now I'm attorney general of the state of Florida. I think the whole country should be so proud of how hard he is up there working. Most people when they get elected take a vacation. And that man is working around the clock, nonstop with Reince Priebus and with Steve Bannon and the whole team. They're up there. It's just a great situation. It's positive and I think they're making a huge difference for our country."

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Friday that he will not be joining President-elect Donald Trump's administration. Gates, who served under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, had talked with Trump for about two hours — his second meeting in as many days, according to the report. The Trump transition team has not described why Gates was meeting with the president-elect. But Gates praised Trump's pick of retired Marine Gen. James Mattis in his former position. "We had a very wide-ranging conversation," Gates said, according to Politico. "I told him I thought his selection of General Mattis to be secretary of defense was terrific, very supportive."

After meeting Friday with Donald Trump, Sen. David Perdue expressed optimism about accomplishing the president-elect’s 100-day action plan. “I’m very optimistic we’ll get all of it underway very rapidly and soon as he’s sworn in,” Mr. Perdue told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in Manhattan. “I’m so excited about the potential direction of our country,” Sonny Perdue, who is reportedly under consideration for Agriculture secretary said that he wasn’t talking to Mr. Trump about a post in the administration but instead on how he could help from his perch in the Senate. “I just had a great meeting with the president-elect and his team and I committed my position in the Senate to full support about getting this 100-day plan executed.”

Presidential Transition Team member Anthony Scaramucci says that President-Elect Donald Trump had a "phenomenal" time last night after meeting with people from across many different categories of government. "We have a real executive search process in place to help the President-Elect and Vice President pick people" Scaramucci says. "What he's really searching for is like minded people that want to serve the American People, subordinate their egos so the collective body of the team, and really put the American People First" Scaramucci said. "He's really evaluating talent" Scaramucci pushed back against some of the criticism surrounding Mr. Trump’s decision to meet with and choose wealthy individuals to serve in his Cabinet, saying the media needs to end the demonization of success. "We want super bright people" - (Killers)
