BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — Donald Trump says his meeting today with Mitt Romney "went great." The president-elect met with the 2012 Republican presidential nominee for about an hour at Trump's golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. The two are trying to mend fences after an acrimonious election year, in which Romney called Trump a "con man" and Trump called Romney a "choke artist."

LIMA, Peru (AP) — President Barack Obama is trying to ease concerns in Latin America that his successor will stomp on trade deals. As he's done at many turns in his final trip abroad as president, Obama is asking foreign leaders to give Donald Trump a chance. He told people at a town hall-style meeting in Peru today that there are likely to be new tensions, given Trump's opposition to trade deals. But Obama predicts that once Trump looks closely at trade in office, he'll see the benefits more than he does now.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis is warning against what he calls a "virus of polarization" and hostility in the world targeting people of different nationalities, races or beliefs.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A jury has recommended that a young man be put to death for killing three people and wounding three others last year at a suburban Cleveland barbershop in a gang-related dispute. The same jury convicted 21-year-old Douglas Shine Jr. earlier this month of aggravated murder and dozens of other charges related to the shootings at Chalk Linez barbershop, in Warrensville Heights, and his role in killing an eyewitness. Sentencing is set for Dec. 5.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of mourners have gathered in a Washington, D.C., church to remember veteran journalist Gwen Ifill (EYE'-ful). The co-anchor of PBS' "NewsHour" died Monday at age 61.
