Jason Miller

Daily Download with the latest updates on President-elect’s transition.

With only 30 days from Inauguration Day, President-elect has started his day in the Presidential Daily Briefing. The transition team has confirmed this morning that the President-elect Trump is fully ready to take on the role of the Commander-in-Chief come January 20th, 2016.

Despite recent speculation that president-elect Donald Trump’s sons are involved in a fundraising event for the Opening Day, Transition team insists that Donald Jr. and  Eric  Trump are in no way involved in it nor  they are planning on being involved.

“The Opening Day event and details that have been reported are merely initial concepts that have not been approved or pursued by the Trump family. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are avid outdoorsmen and supporters of conservation efforts, which align with the goals of this event, however, they are not involved in any capacity,” sad Hope Hicks.

Internal Staff Meetings at Mar-A-Lago

Today, at Mar-A-Lago, President-elect will be holding Internal staff meetings. So far, President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence have been holding over one hundred meetings in an effort to build the next administration.

One of the issues raised by the press today has been President-elect’s tweets about the Electoral College.

President-electJason Miller said that the tweets speak for themselves and that this is something President-elect has already discussed on Thank you rally and there is nothing new here.

Leaked Pentagon Memo

One of the news today is a leaked Pentagon memo obtained and posted online by Foreign Policy, which appears to suggest that Russia is not the top defense priority for Trump. However, Transition team has said that the memo should only be taken as the notes from the meeting and not in any way as a comprehensive policy.  

President-elect will remain in Palm Beach through Christmas. Vice President-elect Mike Pence will spend the Christmas holiday in Indiana. Potentially, we can see additional announcements this week.

We will resume with our Daily Download on PEOTUS  tomorrow with the latest updates on transition.
