Trump maps out a new administration to bring a seismic shift to Washington

  |   World News

Washington began its transition of power Wednesday as the ascendancy of President-elect Donald Trump promised a seismic shift in nearly every facet of the capital city, from military and executive agencies to federal courts and financial and political establishments. Claiming an electoral mandate after maintaining majorities in both chambers of Congress, Trump’s resurgent Republican Party planned an aggressive and sweeping program to systematically dismantle Obama’s policies and to usher in a new era of conservative governance. For the GOP, there were signs of unity after a season of acrimony brought by Trump’s divisive candidacy, which antagonized party leaders.
