PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – President-elect Donald Trump says he didn’t take off all of Thanksgiving Day while enjoying a long holiday weekend with his family at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
Trump says he’s been trying to stop the makers of Carrier air conditioners from relocating its Indianapolis manufacturing operations to a company facility in Mexico.
Meanwhile, his transition team has been stepping up its effort to raise money for inaugural festivities. And Trump offered a holiday prayer for a politically divided nation.
After Thanksgiving Day, Trump and his transition team are expected to turn their attention back to building his administration. Two possible appointments loom: retired neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate Ben Carson as secretary of housing and urban development and billionaire investor Wilbur Ross Jr. as commerce secretary.
