POLL: Trump's jobs offensive is scoring points with Dems and independents

Donald Trump's fight to stop U.S. companies from moving jobs overseas is garnering support from an unlikely group of American voters: Non-Republicans, who are warming to the idea of the president-elect in the White House.

New results from the CNBC All-America Economic Survey found more than half of Independents and a quarter of Democrats said they are comfortable and prepared to support Trump as president. An overwhelming 56 percent of those respondents said the top item on his economic agenda should be keeping jobs in the U.S.

 

The survey of 800 Americans from across the country was conducted December 2-5 by Hart Research Associates and Public Opinion Strategies. Its margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.

Trump Pushes Back on 'Apprentice' Ties: I Will Devote 'Zero Time' to TV Show

President-elect Donald Trump hopped on his favored form of communication Saturday morning to distance himself from the program that helped cement his reality show stature.

After reports this week that he will remain an executive producer of NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice" — even after he takes office next month — Trump tweeted that he will have "NOTHING to do with" the show.

"Will devote ZERO TIME!" he wrote.

He then name-dropped CNN, saying its reporting that he will be involved with the show part-time during his presidency are "rediculous [sic] & untrue - FAKE NEWS!" He later sent a corrected version of the same tweet.

Trump Team: Same People Who Say Russia Meddled In Election Said Iraq Had WMDs

“These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again,'” Trump’s transition team said in an unsigned statement.

The White House Friday announced it would be launching a review of alleged Russian hacking and promotion of disinformation to sway the election. Congressional Democrats and some Republicans have been calling for an investigation of Russian interference in the presidential race and The Washington Post reported Friday night that a CIA investigation concluded that Russia had worked clandestinely to get Trump elected.

Report: Trump Will Pick Rep. McMorris Rodgers for Interior Secretary

The Wall Street Journal reports that President-elect Donald Trump is expected to name Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington to the position of Secretary of the Interior.

McMorris Rodgers has served in Congress for 12 years, and as a member of the GOP leadership, is currently the highest ranking female Republican in Congress.

The Interior Department has control over leasing of fossil fuels and renewable energy on millions of acres of federal lands and waters around the U.S. and conservation of national parks and forests. Mr. Trump has said he would work to review, and likely try to undo, much of what the agency has done over the past several years under President Barack Obama's expansive regulatory agenda.

Rudy Giuliani won’t be Trump’s secretary of state

Rudy Giuliani will not be secretary of state, according to a new report.

The former New York City mayor, a loyalist to Donald Trump during the worst moments of the campaign, will not be named the nation’s top diplomat, according to CNN.

There are three men on the short list — former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson and former Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally, according to reports.

Yet others still have also seen the president-elect to discuss the job — Gen. David Petraeus and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).
