President Elect has officially released two videos from his transition team that are made for the American public. The first video was about what he plans to do in his first one hundred days in office. While his second video was addressing the Thanksgiving holiday.
“It is my prayer, that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by a shared purpose and very, very common resolve. We have just finished a long and bruising political campaign.
Emotions are raw and tensions just don’t heal overnight. It doesn’t go quickly, unfortunately, but we have before us the chance now to make history together to bring real change to Washington, real safety to our cities, and real prosperity to our communities, including our inner cities. So important to me, and so important to our country. But to succeed, we must enlist the effort of our entire nation.”

It looks like this will be a habit for his transition team and future administration, Facebook video addresses. He has infamously had falling outs with the press. Rumors say that he had a closed door meeting with high profile member of the press where he allegedly deemed them out for being dishonest and bias. He appears to be bypassing them completely.
This way he can channel the power of social media without having people from the press interfere could be key to hoe his administration works with the press. It could put him on a completely different playing field than previous Presidents by allowing him to control the narrative of his administration.
Hopefully people take his promises seriously and try and take his message to create positivity in a world of perpetual violence. Now more than ever Thanksgiving is the perfect time to do it.
