America Election

President-elect, Donald Trump has picked former labour secretary and wife of Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, Elaine Chao, as transportation secretary. The new pick official announcement is expected to be announced later in the afternoon.

President-elect, Donald Trump, since his victory has been busy with picking people that will work with him during his administration, and also have been busy with his Twitter account. The recent rant of Donald Trump was against CNN after they reported about his tweet on the recent election.

Donald Trump recently claimed that he would have won the popular votes, just as he won the electoral college if not for massive "voters fraud" that happened in some states. The President-elect then went further to retweet different tweets by his supporters who supported his motion of voter fraud.

                          

CNN called the allegations of the president-elect into questions, and dismissed his allegations of voter fraud in the just concluded election as 'blatant and baseless'.

Trump after that targeted CNN Senior Washington Correspondent, Jeff Zeleny, retweeting a tweet that says "just another generic CNN part time wannabe journalist "

Donald Trump has been furious after Green party candidate, Jill Stein said that a recount should be done in some of the swing states where she had lost the election. She had submitted requests for a recount to Wisconsin, even though she only had 1% vote,a move that was later supported by the Hillary Clinton camp.

Trump has also said that voter fraud did occur in Virginia, California and New Hampshire, but there has been no indication of the fraud or evidence for the Donald Trump allegation.

 Jeff Zeleny, who seems unfazed with Donald's accusation replied with;

Donald Trump once again is shooting himself in the leg with his recent twitter tirade. The President-elect who won the electoral college vote, but lost the popular vote claimed on Twitter he would have won the popular vote if illegal votes were not counted.

                     

While there is no evidence of illegal votes or voters,but Trump went on Twitter tirade, writing;

In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegallyIn addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegallyIn addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegallyIn addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.

The tallies of the vote show Hillary Clinton won the popular votes with more than 2million votes, but Trump won the electoral college votes, making him the President-elect. Trump wrote;

It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4 states instead of the 15 states that I visited.

I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten).

Trump went into a Twitter tantrum after the Green party candidate, Jill Stein file for a recount in the Wisconsin vote, and also said she would filed for recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania as well after people pointed to anomalies in the voting data in the swing states.

A US college has decided to remove the American flag from its campus after the president-elect victory in the 2016 election. The college first lowered the flag following the announcement of Donald Trump victory, and after few days that the country celebrate Veteran’s Day, the flag was removed from the pole and burned.

            

The president of Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts,Jonathan Lash, in an email to students wrote;

Earlier this week, in the current environment of escalating hate-based violence, we made the decision to fly Hampshire's U.S. flag at half-mast for a time while the community delved deeper into the meaning of the flag and its presence on our campus

We hope that decision to remove the flag will enable us to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviours.

I ask our campus to join me in a commitment to living up to the ideals of our mission: to insist on diversity, inclusion, and equity from our leaders and in our communities.

The flag was burned on November 10, the Veterans day eve to protest against Trump's victory.

There is trouble in paradise for the Clintons, days after Hillary Clinton lost the election to Business mogul, Donald Trump. According to Bill Clinton’s closest advisers who was with him in Bill's Little Rock penthouse, there was a shouting match between who was to blame for Hillary losing the election to Trump.

The story was revealed by bestselling author Ed Klein, who wrote the recent tension for MailOnline.

                    

According to the adviser, Hillary had blamed the election misfortune on FBI director, James Comey,after the director opened up on her private use of the Email server, something he claimed the agency found on Huma Abedin ex-husband, Anthony Weiner.

Bill Clinton rejected the claims and instead said Hillary campaign had turn deaf ears to the impact the weak economy is having on the working class voters. 

According to Klein;

Bill always campaigned as a guy who felt your pain, but Hillary came across as someone who was pissed off at her enemy [Trump], not someone who was reaching out and trying to make life better for the white working class.

As shouting match between the couple goes on, it was reported Bill Clinton was red and getting redder is aides are thinking he might have a heart attack. He was so angry he threw his phone off the roof of his penthouse.

Bill Clinton felt he was ignored by Hillary Clinton top advisers when he advised that they use the economy as a centrepiece for her campaign. He urged them to connect with people that have lost their jobs because of globalization and revolutions in technology.

According to the source;

Bill also said that many African Americans were deeply disappointed with the results of eight years of Obama.

Despite more and more government assistance, black weren't economically any better off, and black-on-black crime was destroying their communities. He said Hillary should have gone into the South Side of Chicago and condemned the out-of-control violence.

Watch Hillary Clinton Concession speech.

The FBI is probing a terror plan by terrorist group, Al-Qaeda, a day to US election in Texas, New York And Virginia, according to reports.

The group is planning an attack on the three states, but the location of the attack is yet unknown. 

           

According to a FBI spokesperson; 

The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.

The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.

The FBI is also beefing up its cyber defence system as it fears hackers might want to target its electronic voting systems on voting day. The department of Homeland security is checking and scannning vulnerabilities in the election system before the polling day.

In August, the FBI sent out a flash alert to Illinois and Arizona after detecting a breach in the voter registration database. 

Experts believe that the chances of hacking the election are remote, because the machines are not connected to the internet.
