PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Donald Trump says the attack in Germany backs up his assessment of Islamic-inspired threats. Speaking to reporters after a top-secret security briefing, Trump said, "All along, I've been proven to be right." He says the attack in Berlin is an "attack on humanity." He said, "It's got to be stopped."
BERLIN (AP) — More is being learned about the man who German authorities suspect of carrying out Monday's deadly Christmas market attack in Berlin. A radio station in his native Tunisia reports that Anis Amri had previous convictions there and in Italy. It quotes his father as saying Amri left Tunisia about seven years ago and spent four years in a prison in Italy after being accused in a fire at a school. He then moved to Germany more than a year ago. German authorities say they rejected the man's asylum request in July.
PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The CEO of Boeing has been meeting with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump's Florida resort, just weeks after a public flap over the cost of the Air Force One project. Earlier this month, Trump said that the price of two new Air Force one planes was "out of control" and suggested he didn't want to go ahead with the project at that cost. Trump is also expected to meet later with the head of Lockheed Martin. The company manufactures the F-35 fighter jet, the cost of which Trump has also criticized.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A battle is brewing on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee over Rex Tillerson's personal income taxes. Senate Democratic aides say Tillerson, Donald Trump's pick to be secretary of state, told the panel late last week that he would be willing to turn over his and his wife's federal and state tax returns for the last three years. But the aides say the Trump transition team then told the committee that it won't be getting the material ahead of Tillerson's confirmation hearing next month. They say Sen. Bob Corker, the committee's Republican chairman, is siding with the Trump team.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The man who may be North Carolina's most influential politician is introducing legislation to repeal a state law that has cost the state jobs and millions of dollars. State Senate leader Phil Berger is the primary sponsor of legislation that would repeal the law passed in March dictating which bathrooms transgender people must use and limiting LGBT protections. The bill adds a wrinkle: It would block local governments from passing ordinances regulating employment practices or public accommodations related to restrooms, showers or changing facilities for six months.
