6:26 am
already learned old rules don't apply. the clock is running right now on his new administration. his choices will draw extra scrutiny with no past track record. will president-elect trump surround himself with more traditional confidantes in the mold of his new chief of staff, reince priebus or lien towards his new chief strattist. it's unclear. the transition team is in soon. what is clear is trump is reaffirming some of his campaign promises and already softening others. reflecting consistency with his campaign pledges he'll put pro life judges on the supreme court. the second amendment seems safe while the first amendment may be in jeopardy. but the wall he says now might actually be a fence in sections. and impractical to build in others. instead of deporting all illegal immigrants he'll target what he calls the criminal element.
6:27 am
