"The way we're going to design the plan is to get it as revenue neutral as possible. When you get tax cuts that filter down into the population, you'll pick them up on income taxes" Anthony Scaramucci said during a press briefing on Wednesday at Trump Tower "The idea is to use the tax policy to create more middle class jobs and create wage growth for the working class" Scaramucci said. "Another big thing about our tax policy is were going to repatriate trillions of dollars from off-shore of the United State, bring it back here to help our manufacturing base with an extreme focus on working class and middle class families"

BY WBNG

Bharara, who was once lauded on the cover of Time magazine as the man who is "busting Wall Street," has in the past few years set his sights on prosecuting more than a dozen state officeholders, including New York's two most powerful lawmakers. And lately he has hinted that there may be more prosecutorial surprises to come. "I said I would absolutely consider staying on. ... I agreed to stay on," the quick-witted Bharara told reporters in Trump Tower after his meeting with Trump on Wednesday, adding that the billionaire businessman asked him to remain "presumably because he's a New Yorker and is aware of the great work that our office has done." The surprise meeting ended months of speculation on whether Bharara would stay on after President Barack Obama leaves office in January. Though others who have held his job have gone on to other high-profile positions, such as former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and current FBI Director James Comey, Bharara has repeatedly insisted in interviews that he has the job he wants.

Retiring Sen. Dan Coats said he met with Donald Trump on Wednesday not to ask to be considered for a position in the president-elect's administration, but to discuss issues Trump will be facing. “I gave him some of my years of experience in terms of what I thought they would be dealing with and made some suggestions,” Coats told reporters after the meeting at Trump Tower. "I told them I would assist them, but I am not seeking a specific position." The Indiana Republican told reporters his areas of expertise include defense and intelligence issues, as well as how to get a Supreme Court nominee confirmed. “That's a major issue that the president's going to have to deal with,”Coats, 73, who also served as Bush's first ambassador to Germany, is retiring from the Senate at the end of the year.
