The latest on the incoming Presidential administration.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is Donald Trump's nominee for UN Ambassador. Ben Carson says he's been offered Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

But even bigger  news was made yesterday when Trump was interviewed at the New York Times. He said he's not interested in prosecuting Hillary Clinton, reversed his view that waterboarding should be reinstated, and said he'd consider keeping the US in international climate agreements.

Add to that his softening tone on illegal immigration in the 60 Minutes interview, the question is whether the incoming President was serious about his campaign stances. 

Should Democrats take some solace in his about-face? Should Trump supporters feel betrayed?
