President-elect Donald Trump said Thursday that meeting with the victims and first responders of last week's terror attack at Ohio State University was a great honor. "We just saw the victims and the families — these were really brave people, amazing people," Trump told reporters after the meeting on the university's campus. "The police and first responders were incredible. - The job done in particular by one young gentleman was incredible," Trump added, apparently referring to OSU police officer Alan Horujko, who fatally shot the attacker, Abdul Razak Ali Artan. Artan, 18, a Somali immigrant, first rammed a campus crowd with his car in the Nov. 29 attack before jumping out with a butcher's knife and stabbing 11 people. "I got to meet him, and he is very brave," Trump said "The families have done so well to come through this so well," the president-elect added. "A lot of respect."

Trump toured the factory and visited with some of the workers, some who showed off their “Make America Great Again” hats and took pictures with the president-elect. “Companies are not going to leave the United States any more without consequences,” Trump promised. “Not going to happen.”

In a new Transition Team video released late Monday, President-elect Donald J. Trump updated the American people on his “putting America First” plans from day one of his presidency to the 100th day, including executive actions and policy matters, as well as the progress of Transition Team efforts. Trump has been holding meetings with numerous potential Trump Administration appointees. Last week meetings took place at Trump Tower in New York City, and over the weekend Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence met with leaders from political, business, education, and military backgrounds from across the country at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Last Friday Trump announced some of his first selections for the Trump-Pence administration. U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions was chosen for the position of Attorney General, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn for Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, and Rep. Mike Pompeo as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed confidence after meeting with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Nov. 17 in New York, becoming the first major world leader to do so since the election. "We spent a substantial amount of time together and had a very candid discussion, and the atmosphere of the meeting was very cordial," Abe told reporters after the meeting. "I conveyed my basic thoughts on various issues." The two men met in Trump's penthouse in the Trump Tower in Manhattan. When asked whether Trump offered reassurance about the long-standing security pact between the U.S. and Japan, Abe said, "I will not go into specifics, but I do think that without confidence between two nations, alliances will never function. And with the outcome of today's discussion, I am convinced that Mr. Trump is a leader with whom I can have full confidence." Abe refrained from providing details of the nearly 90-minute meeting since it was an unofficial discussion because Trump had not yet taken office. Trump will be sworn into office on Jan. 20.

President Barack Obama encouraged Americans Monday to give President-elect Donald Trump some time to get adjusted to the responsibilities of the presidency. Obama said he was certain after meeting Trump last week that his successor and longtime political foe was "sincere" about being president for all Americans but also called on the President-elect to reach out to people who felt anxious. "I don't think he is ideological, I think ultimately he is pragmatic in that way and that can serve him well as long as he has got good people around him and he has a good sense of direction," Obama said. "I think it is important for us to let him make his decisions. The American people will judge over the course of the next couple of years whether they like what they see," Obama said.

The incoming Trump administration will focus on immigration, healthcare and jobs, President-Elect Donald Trump said after a Thursday meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “A lot of really great priorities. People will be very, very happy. Well, we have a lot. We’re looking very strongly at immigration. We’re going to look at the borders, very importantly, we’re looking very strongly at healthcare and we’re looking at jobs,” Trump said. “Big league jobs.” Shaping immigration policy to benefit America is highly popular among voters: 54 percent want immigration levels halved or reduced to zero, a new poll has found. Another 58 percent said that illegal aliens should not be permitted to stay in the country, even if they do not commit a “serious crime,” and 59 percent said that the first thing that should be done about illegal immigration is to require all U.S. employers certify that their workers are legal. Nearly one in seven U.S. residents is foreign-born and the number of immigrants in the U.S. stands at a record high of 42.4 million, with most coming from Latin American, Asian, Middle Eastern, or African nations.
