Trump's Inaugural Committee Yet to on Decide Lobbyist Ban

While President-elect Donald Trump's transition has placed restrictions on some lobbyists from serving in the transition, the inaugural committee has not yet made such determinations

Three members of the inaugural committee, which is stacked with Trump's and Vice Preisdent-elect Mike Pence's top donors and fundraisers, told NBC News that a decision hasn't yet been made on whether restrictions will be placed on the amount a person could give to or if a ban on lobbyists or corporations would be instituted.

An announcement could come out as early as tomorrow but more likely next week the sources said.

The inaugural committee is tasked with raising money for the inauguration beyond what the government allows. It also pays for balls, parties and events surrounding the event.

In 2008, President-elect Barack Obama placed a $50,000 limit on individual donors and banned contributions from lobbyists, corporations and super PACs. The committee also entertained no sponsorship agreements.

In 2012, President Obama loosened those restrictions and allowed for contributions from corporations but not from lobbyists or super PACs

The law allows unlimited contributions from corporations and U.S. permanent residents.

Romney and Trump to Meet This Weekend

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will meet with President-elect Donald Trump this weekend, NBC News confirms.

Romney delivered a blistering takedown of Trump in a speech in March, calling the then-candidate "a phony" and "a fraud." Trump has called Romney a loser and said he "choked like a dog" during his 2012 bid against President Obama.

A source close to Trump with direct knowledge of the president-elect's thinking confirms the meeting is to discuss the position of Secretary of State.

Trump endorsed Romney during his campaign four years ago. The former Massachusetts governor began to repair the relationship last week by calling to congratulate Trump on his surprise win.

Obama 'Cautiously Optimistic' About Trump Presidency

President Obama on Thursday said he is "cautiously optimistic" about Donald Trump's presidency once the reality of his immense responsibilities sets in.

"There's something about the solemn responsibilities of that office, the extraordinary demands that are placed on the United States, not just by its own people, but by people around the world that forces you to focus," Obama said during a press conference in Germany on Thursday.

"If you're not serious about the job, then you probably won't be there very long because it will expose problems," Obama added.

The president added that he "wouldn't advise" those opposed to Trump to be silent or stop protesting, but said the election should be an important reminder about the importance of voting.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Visits Trump Tower

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio visited Trump Tower on Wednesday for what he described as a "candid and substantive dialogue" with President-elect Donald Trump.

"I let him know that so many New Yorkers were fearful, and that more has to be done to show that this country can heal and that people be respected," de Blasio told reporters following the meeting.

The Democratic mayor, who supported Hillary Clinton, said he and Trump discussed topics like immigration, Wall Street reform, taxes and the Republican's rhetoric. De Blasio also said he expressed concerns over Trump's decision to appoint former Breitbart News head Steve Bannon to a top White House post.

"The balls in his court, people in this city and all over the country are looking to see what he's going to do," de Blasio said.

Martin O'Malley Withdraws From DNC Race

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley pulled himself out of contention to be the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee Wednesday, days after he said he was considering a bid.

"While I'm grateful to the supportive friends who have urged me to consider running for DNC Chair, I will not be seeking our Party's Chairmanship. The DNC needs a Chair who can do the job fully and with total impartiality. The national interest must come first," O'Malley said in an email to supporters.

McCain Warns Against Russian Reset

Republican Sen. John McCain on Tuesday warned against any attempt to reboot U.S.-Russia relations under Donald Trump's presidency.

"With the U.S. presidential transition underway, Vladimir Putin has said in recent days that he wants to improve relations with the United States. We should place as much faith in such statements as any other made by a former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America's allies, and attempted to undermine America's elections," the Arizona senator said in a statement.

Russia on Tuesday launched a major military offensive in Syria where Putin is backing Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Throughout the campaign, Trump spoke highly of Russian President Vladimir Putin and said he would improve relations between the two countries. Putin and Trump spoke after his victory last week.

"The Obama Administration's last attempt at resetting relations with Russia culminated in Putin's invasion of Ukraine and military intervention in the Middle East," McCain said. "At the very least, the price of another 'reset' would be complicity in Putin and Assad's butchery of the Syrian people."

Trump, Pence Expected To Receive Daily Briefing Tuesday

President-elect Donald Trump and Mike Pence are expected to receive their first President's Daily Briefing on Tuesday at Trump Tower in New York, sources tell NBC News.

President Barack Obama has authorized that the same briefing given to him each day be prepared for Trump and Pence. It contains more sensitive information than the briefings provided to the candidates during the presidential campaign.

Trump has designated retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and son-in-law Jared Kushner as his staff level companions for such briefings, however, Kushner does not have any clearance.

Conway Defends Bannon's White House Appointment

Kellyanne Conway, who successfully navigated the final months of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, dismissed criticism of former Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon's appointment as "chief strategist and senior counselor" to the new administration.

"I work very closely with Steve Bannon, he's been the general of this campaign, and frankly, people should look at the full resume," Conway told reporters Monday. "He's got a Harvard business degree, he's a naval officer, he has success in entertainment, I don't know if you're aware of that, and he certainly was a Goldman Sachs managing partner. Brilliant tactician."

Bannon's former news site has been closely associated with the "alt-right" movement, which has been criticized for promoting white nationalism.

"I know that people weren't prepared for us to win, and so they're reaching around to find extreme examples," she added.

Some Republicans leaders have struggled to defend Bannon's past work.

"I do not know Steve. I do not know what he has said," House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters Monday.
