The relationship between the president-elect and the press is famously strained. In an effort to get on better footing before the Trump administration takes over, the White House Correspondents’ Association and Trump’s team met this week to consider how they can work together. Among the changes discussed are whether daily press conferences will be televised and what the seating chart at these conferences might be. Seating traditionally has been managed by WHCA, according to The Huffington Post. Spicer has suggested that this approach means that some media outlets lose out. “What about some of the conservative media having some of the prized seats in there?” he said last month, according to the website. “What about having some of the top bloggers being able to come in?”

The battle-lines were drawn Wednesday on Capitol Hill in the high-stakes fight over ObamaCare, as President Obama and Vice President-elect Mike Pence huddled with their respective congressional allies to talk strategy for Republicans' repeal push While Obama urged Democrats to "fight" for the Affordable Care Act's survival, Pence assured Republicans that the Donald Trump administration will make the law's demise its "first order of business."  Pence said. “It was a promise made on the campaign trail,” Pence said at a press conference after meeting with House Republicans. “The first order of business is to repeal and replace ObamaCare. … People voted for a better health care system, and we owe them that.” The VP-elect sought to reassure supporters jittery about reports that party leaders could delay repeal efforts and that they have no replacement plan. He also said the repeal process would be a “two-track approach,” with incoming GOP President Donald Trump using his executive powers, as leaders of the Republican-controlled Congress draft and pass the requisite legislation. “It will be a legislative and executive action agenda to assure an orderly transition to something better,” said Pence, who with Trump takes office on Jan. 20.

President-elect Donald Trump says that "no computer is safe" when it comes to keeping information private, expressing new skepticism about the security of online communications his administration is likely to use for everything from day-to-day planning to international relations. "You know, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way. Because I'll tell you what: No computer is safe," Trump told reporters during his annual New Year's Eve bash. "I don't care what they say." Trump said. "I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove, so it could be somebody else," He added, cryptically, that he also knows "things that other people don't know. And so they cannot be sure of the situation."
