Trump changes his tune on climate change, jailing ClintonBy Darlene Powers Nov 24, 2016
The Republican won the Electoral College after taking the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina and unexpectedly snatching victory in states, such as Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, that had previously been part of the Democrat's "firewall" of safe states. Today, in this election, we have such a case. "I am being totally honest with you".
Call it what you will: Donald Trump has nothing resembling a mandate.
So, what's going on here?
One participant reminded the real estate developer and former reality TV star that all presidents and presidential candidates sometimes believe they receive unfair coverage, Trump yelped, "Not Obama!"
- Spoke positively not only of fellow Republicans in Congress - "Right now they are in love with me" - but also of President Barack Obama, who he said is "looking to do absolutely the right thing for the country in terms of transition".
Following the outcome of the presidential election - which surprised pundits and voters alike - many people in major cities including Los Angeles and NY protested against Trumps win, carrying banners reading not my president. Reportedly there is a movement to deny Trump the presidency by electors refusing to cast their ballots for Trump when they meet on December 19.

Joe Schopper's third-quarter line drive punt actually was a good thing because Jazz Peavy fumbled, and the Boilermakers recovered. If Wisconsin runs the table and wins the Big Ten , are they in? "But I am very happy the 1,000 yards came when they did".
Trump has remained hard to pin down when it comes how he'll handle his many business dealings to avoid potential conflicts of interest - and whether he sees the need to at all. The donation came just before she planned to announce her doomed run for president.
One petition on change.org has received almost 4.5 million signatures, and others are growing in signatures, too. It is expected that the House would still vote Trump into office. The only reason Trump "won" is because of the Electoral College. That way a sparsely populated state would have a chance to contribute to electing the president.
Clinton's Electoral College loss, but popular vote win, marks the second time such a split has happened in modern history.
What's up with that? He is author of the book Clinton Cash, which talked about numerous underhanded and sleazy ways the Clintons became uber-wealthy through speeches, favors, and donations.
President-elect Donald Trump waves to the crowd as he leaves the New York Times building following a meeting, Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016, in New York. Because at least 290 electors voting in December will be Republicans, the petitioners encouraging them to vote for Clinton instead would have to convince them to abandon their party. But what if the concept catches on and more and more Electors take the view of the Hamilton Electors. And, lest we forget, it would require amending the Constitution, no small or easy feat. The businessman is now ahead in the previously-Democrat state, albeit only by a narrow margin of around 11,000 votes.
In his first extended interview with a newspaper since Election Day, the president-elect conceded that human activity plays a role in climate shifts. Barbara Boxer introduced a bill to get rid of the Electoral College, calling it a "disaster for democracy".
