Tensions in Trump transition 6 MIN, 30 SEC

The presidential transition process was slowed down today by changes in leadership and other personnel. There's what's been described as a "knife fight" between New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Trump's influential son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Mike Bender, national politics reporter for the Wall Street Journal, has more on the changes in the transition team.

Donald Trump and the fate of the planet 32 MIN, 52 SEC

Climate scientists say the Paris Agreement on greenhouse emissions may offer the last, best chance to slow global warming. Some 200 countries are gathered in Morocco to nail down the accords -- led by the US and China. But, during his campaign, America's President-elect called global warming a hoax — invented by China. His transition team features a climate-change denier. If Trump pulls out, do the Paris Accords have a future? What about his promises to end the Obama Clean-Power Plan, dismantle the EPA and bring back coal?
