President-elect Donald Trump held his first news conference in 167 days. This came as the internet blew up about an unconfirmed report that Russia had compromising information about Trump which they could potentially use to influence his decisions during his tenure in the White House. CNN was one of the outlets that broadcast the story and their reporter paid for it during today’s news conference. Jim Braude (@jimbraude) talks about that as well what Trump had to say about health care, relations with Russia, the Supreme Court, and his cabinet picks with: Dan Primack (@danprimack), business editor at Axios.com; Lylah Alphonse (@WriteEditRepeat), managing editor for news at U.S News and World Report; and Jim Walsh (@DrJimWalshMIT), a senior research associate at MIT’s Security Studies Program.
