the Electoral College exceeded the 270 required

BY GreatAgain

“Today marks a historic electoral landslide victory in our nation’s democracy. I thank the American people for their overwhelming vote to elect me as their next President of the United States. The official votes cast by the Electoral College exceeded the 270 required to secure the presidency by a very large margin, far greater than ever anticipated by the media. This election represents a movement that millions of hard working men and women all across the country stood behind and made possible. With this historic step we can look forward to the bright future ahead. I will work hard to unite our country and be the President of all Americans. Together, we will make America great again.”

Apple is exploring moving iPhone production to the US: Report

BY CNBC

A key iPhone maker is considering moving production of the smartphone to the United States, according to the Nikkei Asian Review. "Apple asked both Foxconn and Pegatron, the two iPhone assemblers, in June to look into making iPhones in the U.S.," the Nikkei Asian Review reported, citing a source. Apple declined to comment when contacted by CNBC. However, Apple has long said the barrier to moving iPhone production to the U.S. is expertise, in addition to cost. The news comes following Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election. The Republican president-elect has been vocal about how U.S. companies should be building their products in America.

BY BREITBART

The November Index of Small Business Optimism from the National Federation of Independent Business shows small businesses have gained confidence with the expectation of better conditions under the new Trump administration.

NFIB marked this as only the third time since 2007 that the index rose above the 42-year average.

IBM unveils plan to hire 25,000 in US on eve of Trump meeting

BY BREITBART

US technology giant IBM said Tuesday it would hire 25,000 people in the country over the next four years, a day before President-elect Donald Trump meets with tech industry leaders. About 6,000 of those hirings will occur in 2017, IBM chief executive Ginni Rometty said in an opinion article published in the newspaper USA Today. IBM, which has undertaken in recent years a restructuring of its activities, will invest $1 billion on employee training and development in the next four years, said the IBM president, chairman and CEO. “We are hiring because the nature of work is evolving — and that is also why so many of these jobs remain hard to fill,” Rometty said, noting that many industries were being reshaped by data science and cloud computing. “Jobs are being created that demand new skills — which in turn requires new approaches to education, training and recruiting,” she said.

U.S. Steel - 10,000 Jobs

BY BREITBART

Wednesday on CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” the CEO of U.S. Steel Mario Longhi said after the election of Donald Trump, he has “felt an environment of positive optimism where forces are converging to provide for a better environment,” which he hopes means he can rehire up to 10,000 employees. Longhi said, “I have not felt an environment of positive optimism where forces are converging to provide for a better environment in quite a while. And this is pretty widespread. Customer suppliers, you know, throughout the communities.” He added, “I’m more than happy to bring back the employees that we were forced to lay off during the depression … It could be close to 10,000.”

MAGA-2020

BY NATIONAL POST

Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said an interview Monday that she is considering leading a new group being formed that will provide “a surround-sound super structure” to bolster the new administration’s political and policy goals. Conway told The Washington Post that she is still deciding whether to join Trump at the White House or run the organization. Conway said it will be important for the organization to be run by someone “close to the president” who understands Trump’s priorities. One immediate goal: to have an organization in place to defend his Cabinet nominees if they face confirmation battles. In the longer term, his advisers believe the group could be a potent force in the 2018 midterm elections. The new Trump entity will resemble in part Citizens for America, an organization launched by supporters of President Ronald Reagan. More than 30 years later, “Trump has the ability to do Citizens for America on steroids through the Internet,” said Richard Hohlt, a Washington-based Republican consultant and lobbyist. “They’re smart enough to know how to harness the movement to their advantage. This is going to be huge. Republicans have never had this before.”

Melania and Barron Trump won’t move to White House until later in 2017

BY KDVR

When asked if Melania and Barron would move to Washington, he said, “Very soon. Right after he finishes school.” Transition officials earlier Sunday were asked about the plans for Melania and Barron after the New York Post reported they would not immediately move to Washington, but would continue to live at Trump Tower so he could finish the year at his elementary school. No official statement has been released by the Trump family regarding transition timing, but like any parents they are concerned about pulling their 10-year-old son out of school in the middle of the year. “We would also appreciate the same privacy and security considerations given to previous First Families with regard to minor children be extended to the Trumps as well.” transition spokesman Jason Miller said.

Gigi Hadid apologizes for Melania Trump impression

BY CBS

Gigi Hadid says her Melania Trump impression during the American Music Awards Sunday “was done in good humor with no bad intent.” In a handwritten note posted on Twitter, the supermodel says she believes the future first lady “understands show business and the way shows are written and run.”  Hadid also apologized in the note to anyone that she offended. Hadid co-hosted the awards with former “Saturday Night Live” impressionist Jay Pharaoh. During her impression of Melania Trump, Hadid alluded to the plagiarism controversy involving the future first lady’s speech at the Republican National Convention that bore striking similarities to one given by first lady Michelle Obama years ago. Hadid mimicked Trump’s accent, saying, “I love my husband, President Barack Obama, and our children, Sasha and Malia.”
