Trump promised a lot. Vowed to bring back jobs and wealth, eradicate crime, drugs and terrorism. But can he deliver?

http://lat.ms/2iRm3eF
In 1976, 10 presidential terms ago, an advisor to then-President-elect Jimmy Carter told him he should keep campaigning forever, even after his inauguration.

Trump says he wants his inauguration to unify the country. Here's a model he can use: Richard Nixon in 1969.

Even before his inauguration, Donald Trump has notched up at least one dubious achievement: He’ll be the first modern president to enter the White House without a honeymoon.

Trump's right: good relations with Russia would be nice. But does he realize that Putin's goals conflict with ours?

Donald Trump is right. (I’ve been waiting weeks for a chance to write that.)

Trump says he'll enact a "beautiful" healthcare plan that covers everybody. If he does, Obama should get some credit

President Obama has embarked on his final campaign, this one aimed at making sure we miss him once he’s gone.

Yes, we pundits botched our predictions in 2016; mea culpa. But we didn't mess up as bigly as they say

Obama says there's no military solution in Syria. Assad and Russia disagree, and Aleppo seems to prove their case

http://lat.ms/2hMOh8V
The slaughter of civilians in Aleppo last week may have shocked the conscience of the world, but no one should have been surprised. Syria’s Assad regime has always treated opponents savagely, and its assault on Aleppo, once the country’s largest city, has been coming for a long time.

Trump's populist inaugural speech sounds as if Steve Bannon helped write it. Bannon then praised it as "Jacksonian."

Before Donald Trump ’s inaugural address Friday, the key question was what tone he would choose to launch his presidency.

Trump's foreign policy nominees disagree with him on major issues -- which means epic internal battles lie ahead.

http://lat.ms/2jCVyX0
Donald Trump ’s foreign policy nominees launched a Reassurance Offensive last week, promising Congress — and the rest of us — that the next president won’t be as scary as he sounds.

A Trump White House with rival factions and no formal chain of command: Experts forecast chaos ahead

http://lat.ms/2iVuFxz
To outward appearances, Donald Trump ’s transition has been humming steadily toward his inauguration on Jan. 20. The president-elect has named all but a few members of his prospective Cabinet, and some will begin confirmation hearings this week. Meanwhile, Trump Tower has issued a torrent of White House staff announcements, from a new chief of staff, Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus , to a reality TV star, Omarosa Manigault.

What Trump voters want: jobs, affordable healthcare, "drain the swamp." If Trump can't deliver, he's on thin ice

What do the voters who elected Donald Trump want him to deliver?

Why we should normalize Donald Trump: "Normalize: to make [someone] conform ... to a norm or standard"

http://lat.ms/2ib7Wjq
President-elect Donald Trump is being normalized before our eyes. On Monday, the electoral college cast its votes in the customary way; despite pleas and demonstrations, only two Republican electors rebelled. Soon, Trump will have an entire Cabinet list ready for nomination, just like an ordinary president. And on Jan. 20, less than a month from now, he’ll take the oath of office and give an inaugural address, with President and Mrs. Obama lookin...
