WASHINGTON — After the Trump transition team selects candidates for top jobs, it will turn its attention to thousands of other positions it must fill – including the entire West Wing staff – and Connecticut GOP Party Chairman J.R. Romano and other state Republicans say they would not mind being in the mix.
WATERBURY – One thing was clear Saturday: Donald J. Trump didn’t come to the Center of the Universe, this city’s defiant if ironic slogan, to pivot or go soft. He says it’s still him against Crooked Hillary Clinton, Lyin’ Ted Cruz, a dishonest media and a rigged political system.
Donald J. Trump took the stage in Hartford and leaped into his greatest hits Friday, sounding notes of patriotism, suspicion of Wall Street, disdain of the media, pity for protesters. He promised a wall on the U.S-Mexico border, an end to the heroin epidemic, an economic recovery in Connecticut and the defeat of Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton.
