the two talked in trump's manhattan penthouse. cruz wouldn't say what they talked about. governor rick scott has been talking a ?lot with president-elect trump too... at least ?three times since election day. but the governor ?still says... he's not interested in joining the adminstration. and although governor scott is happy as florida's governor ?now, he is considering running for the u-s senate in 20-18. that would be after his ?final term as governor ends. and this could be a sign of things to come... for the media covering president-elect transition team told reporters that trump would be staying ?in. but later, his motorcade was spotted driving off... and stopping at the "21 club" restaurant in midtown manhattan. daughter ivanka trump and her husband were also spotted at the restaurant. the reporters were ?not allowed inside. trump repeatedly criticized the media during his campaign, for negative coverage of him. the tampa bay lightning got another big win last night. but they also suffered a ?loss. and we should find out later today, how ?big that loss was.
