Trump should invite Lewis to find mutual ground

President-elect Donald Trump’s takedown of civil rights icon Georgia Rep. John Lewis is such a waste of time. As Inauguration Day looms, one wishes that Trump’s vow “to be so presidential” would start early. And this is not to say the path Lewis chose is the right one either.

At Wednesday’s press conference, the battle between President-elect Donald Trump and the media overshadowed some important issues: Trump’s skirting of a blind trust for his assets; his unwillingness to condemn Russia’s Vladimir Putin; any clarity about what he knew when about the Russian dossier; or any serious discussion about his tax returns.

Get ready for a two-president nation

President Barack Obama has said he will stay in Washington, D.C., to train Democrats on how to assume power again and has explicitly said he will speak out if he sees President-elect Donald Trump going astray. It’s easy to imagine Obama growling through a media microphone on a daily basis.
