TRUMP, OBAMA MEET FOR FIRST TIME:
President-elect Donald Trump and President Obama met for the first time
Thursday and pledged to work together, starting the whirlwind
transition that will unfold over the next 10 weeks until Trump is sworn
into office Jan. 20. An hour and a half after Trump entered the White
House through the South Lawn entrance — avoiding news cameras and the
president’s staff — a group of reporters was ushered into the Oval
Office, where the president and president-elect were seated in the
high-backed armchairs at the end of the room (Washington Post).

 

TRIUMPHANT PENCE RETURNS TO INDY: Gov. Mike Pence has returned to Indianapolis to a big welcome home rally at Indianapolis International Airport (WTHR-TV).
With his wife and daughter by his side, Pence spoke to cheering
supporters at the airport after greeting Gov.-elect Eric Holcomb. “We
are deeply humbled and moved by this warm Hoosier homecoming. In my
life, I’ve been blessed in so many ways – blessed to represent my
hometown in our nation’s capital, blessed to have had the opportunity to
serve as governor of the greatest state in the greatest nation on
Earth. But I am deeply humbled to stand among my neighbors and friends
with my family at my side, to know that it will be my great honor to
take that lifetime of experience to serve as the vice president of the
United States of America,” Pence said. Pence appeared to be fighting
back tears as he spoke.

 

PENCE TO PLAY ‘BIG ROLE’ IN NEW ADMINISTRATION:
Mike Pence intends to take on a robust role as vice president, senior
aides said, adding that his presence at a series of Capitol Hill
meetings with Donald Trump on Thursday underscored his role (Politico).

 

PENCE TO COMPLETE TERM AS GOVERNOR: The Indiana governor’s office says Vice President-elect Mike Pence will complete his term in the state’s top office (Associated Press).
Pence spokeswoman Kara Brooks said Thursday that Pence will remain in
office until his term ends Jan. 9.

 

TRUMP REVENGE TEAM GEARING UP:
Donald Trump has 70 days to build a government and figure out how to
run it, but some of his allies are spending the early days of his
transition plotting revenge against those they believe slighted Trump —
and them (Politico).

 

TRUMP WON WITH LESS MONEY, STAFF, TV:
The man who made “For the Love of Money” his television show’s theme
song was outraised, outspent and out-advertised by Hillary Clinton’s
billion-dollar bid. Donald Trump beat her anyway (Fox News). The
outcome underscores how, through the entirety of his successful White
House bid, Trump did more with less.

 

TRUMP VICTORY PROMPTS DELPH TO PUT IMMIGRATION ON HOLD:
The Indiana Senate’s study committee on immigration met six times this
year and issued zero recommendations at its final meeting (Smith, Indiana Public Media).
The committee chair says that’s largely because of Tuesday’s election
results.

 

INDY IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY GRESK TRIES TO CALM FEARS:
An Indianapolis immigration attorney is trying to calm fears of people
worried about deportation after Donald Trump won the presidential
election Tuesday night (Thomas & Cox, WRTV). Paul Gresk also
has a radio show on 107.1 FM four days a week, where he discusses issues
that affect the Latino community. Since the election, calls have been
coming in non-stop from those worried about deportation and Gresk is
trying to allay some of those fears. “There will not be a wall,” said
Gresk. “What is possible and what is not possible. Mass deportation is
not possible. It would take three years for a case to be heard in
Chicago. There could be a new president by then.”

 

HPI DAILY ANALYSIS:
It’s time for everyone to get a grip and let the coming Trump/Pence
administration evolve into a transition and ruling style. The riots by
those on the left do nothing but further divide the country that has
devolved into political shrapnel. We are all awaiting signs of how
Donald Trump will govern, and we hope he moves away from his penchant
for revenge to a mode of inclusiveness and study. It will be a
fascinating thing to watch. Have a great weekend folks, and remember,
our country is still great. – Brian A. Howey
