President-elect Donald Trump is widening search for selecting his secretary of state, as more suitable candidates are reported to be meeting him this week for the same position.
The search for secretary of state have been reported to be between the former New York mayor and Donald Trump close ally during his campaign, Rudy Giuliani, and also former presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
Trump adviser, Kellyanne Conway told reporters on Sunday;
There is not a finite list of finalists only because he will interview with additional candidates early this week. It is true that he's broadened the search, and the secretary of State is an incredibly important position for any president.
Aides have claimed that the shortlist for the position had been narrowed to four candidates, but Donald Trump is reported to be moving is choices away from both Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus, who pleaded guilty to leaking classified information in 2015, would have to check with his parole officer before he could be named secretary of state.
Rex Tillerson, ExxonMobil CEO and retired Navy Admiral James G. Stavridis have also got an invitation to meet Trump. John Bolton, former ambassador to the UN, and Jon Huntsman, former ambassador to China, are also considered for the position.
Mitt Romney has been criticized by both Trump's supporters and his inner circle. A recent "Thank You" tour by Trump at Ohio see his supporting chanting, "No Romney." The former presidential candidate was a harsh critic of Donald J. Trump, saying he would be the worst president of the United States during his campaign.
Rudy Giuliani plea for the position in public media and his different International business ties does not want Trump to consider him for the job. According to New York times, Giuliani gave paid speeches to an Iranian opposition group that was also on the state department list of terrorist organization until 2012.
He also gave paid speeches as much as $200,000, which earns him $11.4 million in a year. Also, he is reported to have a business contract with the Qatar government.
Donald Trump during his campaign had criticized his rival, Hillary Clinton for giving paid speeches to Goldman Sachs and for receiving donations via the Clinton foundation from the government of Qatar.
Donald Trump is backing out from yet another campaign promise. The President-elect during his campaign had said that he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate her use of private email server.
The news during the campaign that she would lock her up when elected president, makes his supporter chants "lock her up" at every campaign rally.
But to the disappointment of the supporters, the president-elect, Donald Trump is backing out of the promise.
Donald Trump according to senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, the president-elect is working to appoint people that will work with him in the new administration to make America great again.
Watch Donald Trump Threatens Hillary Clinton
On Tuesday, Kellyanne Conway announced that the president-elect will not pursue an investigation into the former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton private email server or the family charity organization.
While speaking to MSNBC, Ms Conway said;
I think when the President-elect, who’s also the head of your party, tells you before he’s even inaugurated that he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content.
During the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump in early October, Trump told Hillary;
if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation
During one of his solo interview with CBS after he was elected, Donald Trump said;
I’m going to think about it,I feel that I want to focus on jobs, I want to focus on healthcare, I want to focus on the border and immigration and doing a really great immigration bill.
He said the Clintons did some bad things,” but that ultimately they were “good people”. “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them,” he said. “They’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them.”

I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election, I am too, more than I can ever express.
A lot of people have asked themselves whether America was the country we thought it was over this past week.
The divisions laid bare by this election run deep. But please listen to me when I say this: America is worth it. Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values, and never, ever give up.
There is trouble in paradise for the Clintons, days after Hillary Clinton lost the election to Business mogul, Donald Trump.

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.

Trump might have created a lot of enemies, out of his 99 problems, a monkey is not one He was recently choosen by a China's magical monkey king, Geda as winner of the US presidential election.
Geda is a prophetic primate from Shiyan Lake Ecological Tourism Park in Hunan, and has a history of predicting the right result by placing a banana between two opponents, and Geda will go to eat the monkey of the preferred monkey.
His prediction came through during the 2016 European football championships. The monkey went for Portugal as the winner of the competition, and it happened.
So, last Thursday, Geda was put to a test again. He was asked to pick the winner of the US election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, using his banana prediction game. This time the monkey went for Donald Trump, gave it a big hug and a kiss.
Though Chinese-Americans don't like Trump, Geda seems to believe that Trump will win the election
The FBI has announced it will be re-opening the Former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton investigation after the bureau finds some new emails related to the email server. The FBI director, James Comey makes the announcement today.
A letter has also been sent to congress explaining the reason the case will re-open, he said that the FBI "The FBI cannot yet assess" the information to know whether it is "significant" or how long the investigation to make an assessment.
Comey also added that the latest discovery had occurred "in connection with an unrelated case," which leads to the decision to resume the investigation.
While the news was breaking out, Senator Clinton was on the campaign trail in Iowa, but did not talk about the investigation when addressing supporters.
The news of the investigation is happening 11 days before Americans decide on their next president. Though Clinton is leading Donald Trump in the election, after he (Donald Trump) suffered in the polls after his #PussyGate scandal.
In July, James Comey said that while Clinton and her aides during their tenure was "extremely careless" in the handling of classified information, he recommended that no charges be filed.
On November 8, 2016, Americans will decide on their new president between 2-popular political parties, the Republican candiate, Donald J. Trump and Democratic candidate and first woman to assume the position, Hillary Clinton.
There are dedicated supporters of Clinton and Trump. People have taken to their social media accounts to campaign for their own preferred candidates. A lot of fist thrown around, smiles, the scandal has been thrown around, and sometimes people around the world wonder if this is the American they have grown up to hear about.
On November 8, when Barack Obama steps down, American would need a new president, but before you go out there, I will like to advise you on a few things to consider before you use the voting machine.
1. You are not just voting for just a month or six months, anybody you decide to vote for will be in the White house for either four, or possibly eight years. Make sure the lady or man telling you their campaign promises can live up to that promise, because most of their decisions are what you will live through all 8 years, or forever.
2. Don't be selfish when voting. Don't look at what you stand to gain from the election, but what majority tends to gain from the candidate. Think if the candidate policy will ruin the chances of others.
3. American politics is not America football game, they are two different things. I have seen a lot of Americans standing with the party their parents or grand-parents had always been loyal to, but sometimes, we all need to take a step back and watch things and decide on our own terms.
This is your life and generation, take charge of it.
Do not vote for a candidate because they belong to your party and you want your party member to lead the country. That would be disastrous, but vote for someone that will move things forward for at least 80% American and also American allies.
4. Remember your vote is your power as a citizen. Once they get there, your power will only be used again in 4 years, unless they sleep with their intern or break some of American law. So it would be wise to not just sit on your computer shaming people or staying on reddit.
Like Obama said, "Don't boo, vote" whether you are a republican or Democrats, please go and vote.
Hillary Clinton has faced different health episode in the past, but her recent health trouble was at the 9/11 memorial service. Hillary was not feeling too good, and was helped to get inside her van after she fainted.
The Democratic party is expected to call an emergency meeting to discuss if she would be replaced after she was recently diagnosed with Pneumonia, and her doctor has advised she cut back on campaigning.
Clinton has therefore cancelled her visit to California and her speech in Las Vegas in currently in doubt.
If Hillary Clinton withdraws from the race now due to health issues with 57 days left for election, the job of the commander-in-chief might land in Donald Trump laps.
David Shuster, Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist based in NYC tweeted from his account that the Democratic party would meet to "consider a replacement" – citing party officials.
