  • GOP braces for Trump’s $1T infrastructure push (The Hill) Republicans in Congress appear ready to embrace President-elect Donald Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure proposal - at least for now. But even the most optimistic lawmakers caution that conservative support for his plan will hinge on the details, such as how the package is paid for and whether it’s coupled with other GOP priorities.

  • Trump takes credit for stopping Ford from moving jobs to Mexico, even though it wasn’t going to happen (The New York Daily News) President-elect Donald Trump took credit Thursday for preventing a move that was never going to happen in the first place. While Ford has made clear the company will move production of small cars from Michigan to a plant in Mexico, there’s no indication the automakers two plants in Kentucky were even in danger of closing. And Ford has said that the small car move is being made to "make room for two very important products we’ll be putting back into Michigan plants" and "there will be no jobs impact whatsoever".
