"Hello?"

Hello, Barack. Good morning. It's Donald.

"Hey, Donald. How are you?"

Good. Good. Mr. President, I want to congratulate you on your victory. Big win, I can respect that.

"Thank you, Donald. This means a lot. It's important for our democracy that we all be gracious to each other, in victory and defeat."

Sure, yeah. I wish you, Michelle and the girls well, Barack. Good luck in the next four years, you're gonna need it.

"Thank you. I wish you, Melania and the kids well, too. It's been a tough campaign for all of our families."

Oh, we'll all be well. Don't worry about us. Goodbye, Mr. President. Maybe we'll meet again.

"Goodbye, Donald."

Loved the first half, very excited to see where you take this world from here. Obama's great and all but here's to moderates taking back the GOP based off Huntsman's popularity.

Thanks, everyone! This part will probably have a slightly different format from the first- instead of large article-like updates with singular focus on events, it will have smaller tidbits about various events, a bit like MyCroftCZ's Hillary Presidency TL or President Johnson's Liberal Republic TL. The reason is that I believe it's more effective for covering a transition and an administration with many events and news. First update soon!

Great developments. I look forward to read the TL! Trump's call was gracious, though I don't expect him to stay that quiet. I bet he'd be out tweeting very soon after his defeat. Tongue

Trump calls Obama to concede; addresses supporters in surprisingly tame morning speech



NEW YORK CITY - After raising fears he would not concede the election during the night, 2016 Republican nominee Donald Trump has called President Obama to concede in the early morning hours, a call that was described by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest as "gracious". Later, Trump finally addressed supporters in his New York City election night watch party, in a speech described as surprisingly tame. He called supporters to "unite and support our President at this time like in every democracy", but then quickly veered to subtly attacking those he blames for his defeat- the establishment. Trump thanked supporters, who seemed eager to hear a more fiery speech, for "making this movement to Make America Great Again happen", and claimed that "we were almost there, but our country's political establishment doesn't want America to be great again". He finished his speech by calling his supporters to "keep fighting" for what they believe, raising speculation that he was planning another run in four yers. In the night before, many feared Trump would refuse to concede, with only running mate Chris Christie calling Vice President-elect Tammy Baldwin to congratulate her and addressing the campaign's supporters without Trump.

President Obama: team getting to work on building cabinet, crafting agenda



WASHINGTON, D.C. - In remarks given to the press at the White House's Rose Garden, President Barack Obama confirmed that "several" cabinet positions will see "new faces". The current assumption amongst White House officials is that Obama will retain some of his cabinet members and replace others, to create a combination of continuity and a feeling of a fresh start in his administration. Furthermore, the President said that his team was already working on crafting an agenda for his third term, and hinted on the priorities being considered: "guaranteeing quality healthcare coverage to all Americans, protecting our environment, reforming our immigration system and making our justice system equal." The first new cabinet secretary was already confirmed during Obama's election night victory speech- Vice President Joe Biden will serve as Secretary of State. For other cabinet positions, speculation is rampant, as White House sources hinted that there will be "more Republicans" in the cabinet than currently the first two terms, in an attempt to mend divisions.

Republicans 'open' to giving Garland a hearing, McConnell says



WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) confirmed today that Senate Republicans are now willing to to give President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Appeals Court Judge Merrick Garland, a hearing, potentially paving the way for his confirmation even before the swearing-in of the new Congress, when Republicans will lose their majorities. McConnell explained the change of mind by the fact that "an election was held" and the identity of the new President was confirmed- "the same one currently in office". Thus, the Kentucky Republican said, there is no use in waiting until Obama's re-inaguration until Garland's hearings. However, it's uncertain if Obama, guaranteed a strong Democratic Senate majority in the next Congress, will keep the centrist Garland as nominee instead of appointing a more liberal judge. Opinions in the Democratic party are split- while progressives like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) urged the President to appoint a more liberal judge who's "guaranteed to upend Citizens United", others like Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen.-elect Evan Bayh (D-IN) have said that the President should "stay the course" and push for Garland's confirmation soon.

Obama national security team to retain two key figures: Jeh Johnson, Ash Carter will remain in cabinet positions



WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama said today that two key figures of his administration, Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, will remain in their positions. Carter, 62, has served for less than two years and is said to be close to the President, while Johnson, 60, who served in the position since 2013, is considered a capable and professional secretary, so their retainment doesn't come as a surprise. With the confirmation that Vice President Joe Biden will serve as the nest Secretary of State, President Obama's national security team is shaping up to consist mostly of old faces. But one cabinet-level position remains uncertain- with U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power confirming yesterday that she will retire come 2017, speculation is rampant about the identity of her replacement. Some names raised were former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-NY), current Secretary of State John Kerry (D-MA), Fmr. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, Fmr. Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman (D-MD).

President Obama announces major cabinet appointment- Fmr. Gov. Deval Patrick to serve as next Attorney General



In the first major shakeup in the Obama cabinet since Joe Biden was announced as the next Sec. of State, the President announced that Attorney General Lorretta Lynch, known for meeting with Bill Clinton on an airplane to allegedly discuss his wife's email probe, will retire at the end of the current term. Instead, former Massachusetts Governor and close Obama ally Deval Patrick will serve as head of the Justice Department. Though disliked by progressives for his time at Bane Capital, Patrick is considered a solid pick for the job, with extensive legal experience and a strong focus on criminal justice reform, an Obama third term priority. Patrick was rumoured to be one of the main figures urging Obama to seek a third term, and is a close person in the President's circle.

Excited to see who the new Sec. of Treasury will be. Will he pull an FDR and run for a 4th term?

Thanks! The new Sec. of Treasury is coming in the post after the next one, it's an interesting pick to be sure. And as for the 4th term speculation... Obama isn't ready to pledge not to do it yet, so we shall see Tongue
Also, it'd be great if you could cut the TL post from the quote when replying to it, like I did here, so as to not crowd the page Smiley

Obama's pick for Agriculture Department: Patty Judge, another Iowan



Des Moines - The next U.S. Secretary of Agriculture will be another politician from the State of Iowa, President Obama confirmed today. Patty Judge, former Lieutenant Governor and Iowa Agriculture Secretary, will be the President's pick to replace Tom Vilsack, elected to the Senate from his state in 2016, in the Agriculture Department. Judge is considered a qualified woman for the position, especially since she has deep experience in agricultural matters, and the pick was widely praised by agriculture activists from both sides of the aisle. Sen. Joni Ernest (R-IA) said that the pick was "encouraging" and that "Patty is a great Iowan and a friend of mine", signaling Republican support for the pick.

Two more retainments: Julián Castro, Ernest Moniz to stay in posts



WASHINGTON, D.C. - Two more popular members of the Obama cabinet will stay in their posts, the President confirmed today. Julian Castro, former Mayor of San Antonio and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, is seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party and him remaining in the cabinet is seen as a good way to keep him politically visible before a potential run for higher office in Texas, a state Obama narrowly won in 2016. Ernest Moniz, the Secretary of Energy, is a nuclear physicist by profession and is considered an effective and competent leader for the department overseeing the nation's nuclear arsenal. He also promised to work to implement the President's clean energy agenda. The choices are considered strong, and pundits say that there was no reason for Obama to replace the two popular secretaries.

Howard Dean to serve as next Secretary of Health and Human Services



BURLINGTON - In an announcement considered by many a surprise, President Obama said that current HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell, previously favoured to be retained, will retire at the end of the current term and be replaced by Howard Dean, a politician with an extensive record- former Governor of Vermont, Democratic Vice Presidential nominee in 2004, and 4th-place finisher in the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary, losing to Obama. Dean, a former doctor and a high-profile appointment who expressed support for some form of universal healthcare, said that guaranteeing healthcare for all Americans will be "very high in the agenda". The pick was praised by progressive as well as moderate Democrats, with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling it "a very positive sign", but opposed by most Republicans, and signals a coming congressial battle on healthcare as Obama strives to cement his legacy.

Comey to remain FBI Director, Avril Haines to lead CIA



WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama announced today his picks to head the two most important security agencies- Avril Haines, former Deputy CIA Director and current Deputy National Security Advisor, will return to the CIA to head the agency, while current FBI Director James Comey will retain his position. Both choices are considered somehow surprising- Haines is regarded as a woman with high work ethics and a personality of humility and kindness, traits hardly associated with the CIA, and is considered a sign that Obama wishes to make the agency less "brutal". Haines will also be the first woman to head the CIA, signaling a historic development. Meanwhile, Comey reportedly angered the President by publicly announcing that the Hillary Clinton email probe will be briefly resumed a few weeks before election day, returning Clinton's email problems to the headlines. However, he's regarded as a neutral and ethical force within the FBI, and the President was otherwise happy with his performance.

BREAKING NEWS: Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) appointed by Obama to serve as Commerce Secretary



LAS VEGAS - In his most surprising new cabinet announcement to date, President Barack Obama announced today that Senator Dean Heller, a relatively moderate Republican from Nevada, will serve as his next Secretary of Commerce. The pick shook up Washington, as it meant two things- Obama will press on with his free-trade policy and work to pass the TPP, and Heller will not run for reelection in 2018, opening up a possible pickup for Democrats in a year looking grim for them. However, Governor Brian Sandoval, whose term is up in 2018, will appoint Heller's replacement and could potentially run for the seat himself. The pick got mixed reviews- progressive Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) called Heller "someone who doesn't have the best interests of the American worker in mind", and Senator Mitch McConnell called it "a nakedly political move". However, others praised the pick, with House Speaker Paul Ryan noteably regarding it "positively" and Senator John McCain lauding Obama for "a strong showing of bipartisanship and goodwill". Heller himself confirmed the nomination, said that he will "gladly accept the oppurtinity to serve my nation", and defended the pick, denying that it has a political purpose, and joking that there is "no evidence I would be a stronger candidate in 2018 than another person I think we all have in mind", probably hinting at Governor Sandoval. The Nevada Governor refused to reveal Heller's appointed replacement or to reveal his own intentions.

Al Gore chosen EPA Administrator, signaling strong environmental agenda



WASHINGTON, D.C. - After weeks of speculation, President Obama announced today that former Vice President Al Gore, a Peace Noble Prize winner for his work to combat climate change and increase awareness to the issue, will be chosen as the new Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. With such a high-profile pick for the Agency, Obama signals that environmental issue will take a high priority in his third term's agenda, and that the EPA's authority will likely increase even more. Environmental activists applauded the choice, and while most conservatives are likely to oppose Gore, it is likely that some moderate Republican Senators will vote for him, guaranteeing confirmation. Gore said that he was "very happy and honoured" by the appointment and promised to "work hard to protect our environment and help save our planet's future". In a CNN Interview, Gore also confirmed that the Obama administration will present an environmental bill before congress "during the first year", making it likely to be one of the first items on the agenda. The Gore pick also has some historic significance- it will mean that President Obama will have three Vice Presidents serving in his cabinet, Vice President-elect Tammy Baldwin, current Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Al Gore.

Obama chooses a new Chairman for the DNC- his Secretary of Labour, Tom Perez



WASHINGTON, D.C. - Secretary of Labour Tom Perez was announced today as President Obama's recommendation to serve as the next Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, which means that he's expected to easily be chosen for the job by delegates. Perez will be replacing Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile, who took over after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced by the President to resign over a DNC email leak by Wikileaks a bit before the 2016 Democratic National Convention, in which she attacked former Senator Bernie Sanders and indicated that the DNC must work to defeat him in the primary. The choice of Perez is considered unusual, given that he's not a political insider, but not surprising- Obama is likely to want a man close to him heading the DNC, and Perez fits the bill. Secretary Perez was considered one of the most effective and popular cabinet secretaries, having strong executive credentials and good relations with Congress, and speculative future prospects for him included Attorney General, remaining in Labour, or running for Governor in his homestate of Maryland against Republican Larry Hogan, but he was chosen for the DNC- for the time being.

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm to become next Labour Secretary, a key victory for Progressives



DETROIT - President Obama announced today the identity of the one who will take over from outgoing Labour Secretary Tom Perez, who was chosen to lead the DNC- former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Generally considered a good Governor who helped Obama with the restoration of the auto industry in Detroit, Granholm is staunchly pro-union and enthusiastically supports expanded worker's rights. This is considered a victory for the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, which was pushing for a strongly pro-organized labour person to fill the job. Indeed, Granholm was lauded by Senator Sanders (I-VT) as "a strong pick for the American workers" , and by Senator Merkley (D-OR) as "a pick that should let the average American worker sleep easier". Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was especially vocal about his support, calling Granholm "one of [his] favourite cabinet appointtees so far".

December 25th, 2016

Rob Nabors to become new OMB Director; Sandra Black will be Chair of Economic Advisors Council; Marianne Markowitz to be Administrotor of the Small Business Administration



WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama's economic team was bolstered today as three important members of his administration were confirmed- Rob Nabors, an important White House aide and former Deputy Director of the agency, will serve now as Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Harvard economist and current member in the Council of Economic Advisors will now serve as Chair, and Marianne Markowitz, a financial aide, will be the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, where she briefly served as Acting Administrator in 2014. The appointments of mostly Obamaworld insiders signals that the President is planning to double down on his economic policy of stability and careful growth in the coming term.

BREAKING: Janet Yellen announced Obama appointtee to serve as next Secretary of the Treasury



WASHINGTON, D.C. - Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen will leave her office to serve as President Obama's next Secretary of Treasury, the President confirmed today. It's considered a strong, if fairly surprising, appointment- Yellen was praised for her job in the Federal Reserve, being ranked by media and experts as one of the best economic policymakers in the world. While a less powerful position than her current one, the Treasury Department will allow her to serve for at least four years, while her term in the Federal Reserve is up in a year. Politicians from across the aisle praised the Yellen pick- future Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called her "an excellent woman, the best one for the job", Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called her "a good choice, who will hopefully help implement a progressive economic agenda", and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that he "approves" of the pick.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - After weeks of speculation, President Obama announced today that former Vice President Al Gore, a Peace Noble Prize winner for his work to combat climate change and increase awareness to the issue, will be chosen as the new Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. With such a high-profile pick for the Agency, Obama signals that environmental issue will take a high priority in his third term's agenda, and that the EPA's authority will likely increase even more. Environmental activists applauded the choice, and while most conservatives are likely to oppose Gore, it is likely that some moderate Republican Senators will vote for him, guaranteeing confirmation. Gore said that he was "very happy and honoured" by the appointment and promised to "work hard to protect our environment and help save our planet's future". In a CNN Interview, Gore also confirmed that the Obama administration will present an environmental bill before congress "during the first year", making it likely to be one of the first items on the agenda. The Gore pick also has some historic significance- it will mean that President Obama will have three Vice Presidents serving in his cabinet, Vice President-elect Tammy Baldwin, current Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Al Gore.

Obama chooses a new Chairman for the DNC- his Secretary of Labour, Tom Perez



WASHINGTON, D.C. - Secretary of Labour Tom Perez was announced today as President Obama's recommendation to serve as the next Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, which means that he's expected to easily be chosen for the job by delegates. Perez will be replacing Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile, who took over after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced by the President to resign over a DNC email leak by Wikileaks a bit before the 2016 Democratic National Convention, in which she attacked former Senator Bernie Sanders and indicated that the DNC must work to defeat him in the primary. The choice of Perez is considered unusual, given that he's not a political insider, but not surprising- Obama is likely to want a man close to him heading the DNC, and Perez fits the bill. Secretary Perez was considered one of the most effective and popular cabinet secretaries, having strong executive credentials and good relations with Congress, and speculative future prospects for him included Attorney General, remaining in Labour, or running for Governor in his homestate of Maryland against Republican Larry Hogan, but he was chosen for the DNC- for the time being.

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm to become next Labour Secretary, a key victory for Progressives



DETROIT - President Obama announced today the identity of the one who will take over from outgoing Labour Secretary Tom Perez, who was chosen to lead the DNC- former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Generally considered a good Governor who helped Obama with the restoration of the auto industry in Detroit, Granholm is staunchly pro-union and enthusiastically supports expanded worker's rights. This is considered a victory for the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, which was pushing for a strongly pro-organized labour person to fill the job. Indeed, Granholm was lauded by Senator Sanders (I-VT) as "a strong pick for the American workers" , and by Senator Merkley (D-OR) as "a pick that should let the average American worker sleep easier". Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was especially vocal about his support, calling Granholm "one of [his] favourite cabinet appointtees so far".

Rob Nabors to become new OMB Director; Sandra Black will be Chair of Economic Advisors Council; Marianne Markowitz to be Administrotor of the Small Business Administration



WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama's economic team was bolstered today as three important members of his administration were confirmed- Rob Nabors, an important White House aide and former Deputy Director of the agency, will serve now as Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Harvard economist and current member in the Council of Economic Advisors will now serve as Chair, and Marianne Markowitz, a financial aide, will be the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, where she briefly served as Acting Administrator in 2014. The appointments of mostly Obamaworld insiders signals that the President is planning to double down on his economic policy of stability and careful growth in the coming term.

BREAKING: Janet Yellen announced Obama appointtee to serve as next Secretary of the Treasury



WASHINGTON, D.C. - Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen will leave her office to serve as President Obama's next Secretary of Treasury, the President confirmed today. It's considered a strong, if fairly surprising, appointment- Yellen was praised for her job in the Federal Reserve, being ranked by media and experts as one of the best economic policymakers in the world. While a less powerful position than her current one, the Treasury Department will allow her to serve for at least four years, while her term in the Federal Reserve is up in a year. Politicians from across the aisle praised the Yellen pick- future Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called her "an excellent woman, the best one for the job", Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called her "a good choice, who will hopefully help implement a progressive economic agenda", and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that he "approves" of the pick.



I had a feeling Yellen would be chosen. Most of these picks are good!

I've been away from What Ifs for almost a week, I'm so glad to see this TL is going beyond Obama's re-election! Wish this was the real world.

no 22nd amendment. He didn't give us an explanation as to why, maybe it was shot down and never brought back up.
