Source: CNBC

And now the new Trump administration will promote Obamacare. Really.

The Obama administration reportedly paid for advertisements and funded outreach programs, through the end of January, to encourage people to sign up for Obamacare health coverage.

The ads and other promotion efforts will go on during the first 12 days of the presidential term of staunch Obamacare opponent Donald Trump, who took the presidential oath of office Friday.

Treasury nominee initially omitted more than $100 million from disclosures, Democratic memo says

President-elect Donald Trumps nominee to lead the Treasury Department initially failed to disclose his interests in a Cayman Islands corporation as well as more than $100 million in personal assets, according to a memo by Democratic staffers on the Senate Finance Committee that was obtained by The Washington Post.

"The reason nominees are allowed to amend their disclosure forms is to ensure that all the information provided is correct," Mnuchin spokeswoman Tara Bradshaw said. "That is why we have provided the appropriate amended forms to the committee."

According to the memo, Mnuchin submitted answers Dec. 19 to a standard committee questionnaire seeking information about his financial and business interests. At the time, Mnuchin verified that those responses were accurate and complete.

However, Mnuchin had left out $95 million in real estate from his initial disclosures, according to the memo. Those assets included a co-op in New York City and homes in Southampton, New York, and Los Angeles. In addition, the memo revealed that Mnuchin possesses about $15 million worth of real estate in Mexico.

Obama approval hits 60% as end of term approaches

Source: CNN

President Barack Obama will leave office Friday with his highest approval rating since 2009, his presidency largely viewed as a success, and a majority saying they will miss him when he is gone.

A new CNN/ORC poll finds Obama's approval rating stands at 60%, his best mark since June of his first year in office. Compared with other outgoing presidents, Obama lands near the top of the list, outranked only by Bill Clinton's 66% in January 2001 and Ronald Reagan's 64% in January 1989. About two-thirds (65%) say Obama's presidency was a success, including about half (49%) who say that was due to Obama's personal strengths rather than circumstances outside his control.

Thanks, Obama.

CNN/ORC Poll: Confidence drops in Trump transition

Source: CNN

Trump's wobbly handling of the presidential transition has left most Americans with growing doubts that the President-elect will be able to handle the job. About 53% say Trump's statements and actions since Election Day have made them less confident in his ability to handle the presidency, and the public is split evenly on whether Trump will be a good or poor president (48% on each side).

Across all three of these measures, Americans' impressions of Trump have worsened since November. In that time, disapproval of his handling of the transition has climbed seven points to 52%, the percentage who think he'll do a good job has dropped five points, and the share saying they have lost confidence in Trump's ability to be president grew 10 points.
