Fundamental Overview

Donald Trump held his first press conference since winning the presidency on Wednesday, touching on many of the issues that will dominate the opening weeks of his presidency. Looming over the proceedings was a newly-published, and entirely unverified, dossier claiming the Russian government had collected compromising information on him. Mr. Trump blasted the intelligence community and media for allowing the documents to become public, before moving on to his business dealings and his priorities upon taking office. Mr. Trump says it is a “disgrace” that information that should have been restricted to the intelligence community made its way into media reports.
