here about having this meeting with mitt romney? >> i think it is fantastic. it shows that politics does make strange bed fellows. abraham lincoln when he became president took his enemies when he became president because he knew they were talented and could be useful. once you are working for the president you are working for the entire nation. you are not just serving an individual. >> how does he cover these positions secretary of state, dae fence, so many of the important jobs as we move forward in the nation. how does mr. trump go about making that decision? he cares about loyalty but most importantly the best person for the job. >> absolutely the key is loyalty to policy to also the president to the country. most important also his ability. the ability to serve in the job that is requested. look, the people who gyou to th white house are not necessarily the people you want in the white
house. everybody understands that. you can't be loyal to a fault. you have to be able to attract people who not necessarily supported you in the beginning but support you in the end. >> you look at past presidents you have been part of helping push 43 where they took a number of weeks to figure out the exact right people to fill the cabinet. is the media right to criticize? a oo he is ahead of the game, though, right? >> slow and steady is the best course. don't make rash decisions paining them on your own time table. most presidents have taken weeks to come out with a cabinet. i think mr. nixon took about six weeks and he announced them all at once. patience. everybody needs to chill and let the president elect make the best possible decisions for our country. >> one of the other things it is
specifically important for him to put them in place to allow them to keep the campaign promises he made. big announcement about ford keeping some of those jobs and production in kentucky specifically. moran announcements to come on that front as well. >> busy man. >> good toe see you. >> demonstrations against trump could turn criminal. one lawmaker's plans to prosecute the protestors. >> surprising change of scene from john stewart. >> everybody who voted for trump is a racist. that hypocrisy is also real in our country. >> his message now going viral.

watching the lobby for cabinet fills. general michael flynn is in his tab net for the white house. there are a lot of positions to go. >> there are a lot of conversations if the president elect and cabinet position is going to lead to the senior strategy role. he is a man who listens and he learns. >> could he be learning from one of his rivals mitt romney? the meeting now on the schedule. >> taking steps to put weapons in the hands of teachers. a car goes through a bar taking the vehicle through the within doe. was an accident or revved up revenge? "fox & friends first" continues right now.

defense intelligence agency from 2012 to 2016. he never received a single audience from commander-in-chief at that time. he said he was fired from dia because his assessment frof ric s isis and radical islam was different than what the president viewed. mitt romney at trump's national golf club this weekend. mr. trump is said to be evaluating governor romney for the job of secretary of state. >> mitt romney is a job creator an american success story. he knows a lot about the world. many things he talked about in his 2012 election with respect to the world stage has come true. i anticipate meeting of the minds and two equal partners in terms of those who love their country and want a peaceful
transition into the next administration. governor romney can add to that conversation. >> many eyes remain fixed on republican senator jeff sessions the earliest supporter of donald trump and may have huz pick of any. perhaps the department of justice and the pentagon. many hope sessions will remain in the senate for his long experience. the trump legislative agenda. take heart the word is now that the president elect is considering a victory tour of just such rallies in the states that he wants. >> you think that's a great idea. >> a lot of people will show up for that. >> you know who went to trump judge jeanine. >> really? >> i don't know.
>> herman cain says he has to go with his gut. >> some of the liberal media admitted like the new york times that they were biased and they did not present the facts. they haven't changed yet. they are going to be kicking and screaming, nit-picking every move that donald trump makes. get that back to the people question again. donald trump has demonstrated to me not just knowing him but his instincts about people iffigoin back to loyalty he will be able to tell with his instincts what somebody can be loyal to him even though they may not have been in his cheering section when he ran for president. >> also remember no matter who president elect trump picks for his cabinet they have to face congressional approval. millions of americans

aged and no distinctions are made we won't know what to protect. >> lashing back saying he is creating a scapegoat that is an upset at the ballot box. o >> it is a slippery slope. we have to let the people decide. this kind of governing and sort of censorship does not work and we have to trust the people. the people are intelligent. >> this isn't the first time he has spoken out against social media. again after the brexit vote. >> we asked what you think president obama calling fake news a threat to democracy new comments are pouring in on this one. >> don on facebook says i think he's concerned about fake news because the democrats won. they are trying to put the blame on their failed policies. >> old woman lol criminal violence against others are a threat. we the people can judge what is
