Trump meets with the New York Times and blasts the media 6 MIN, 30 SEC

As we go to air, Donald Trump is meeting with reporters and staff at the New York Times.  Yesterday, an off-the-record meeting with TV anchors and executives featured Trump blasting them as "unfair, lying and biased." Hadas Gold, media reporter for Politico, has more on both meetings.

A Muslim registry: Would it be legal? 33 MIN, 27 SEC

Donald Trump threatened a ban on Muslim immigration during his campaign, and, since, his election, incidents of ethnic intimidation are on the rise. That's created a climate of fear among Muslim Americans, who worry about an official Muslim registry. Trump himself has issued conflicting statements, but it's been done before — most recently in the aftermath of September 11. During WWII, Japanese-Americans were interned, and some Trump surrogates have insisted the legal precedent still applies. We update that story.

Will North Carolina's governor refuse to step down? 9 MIN, 47 SEC

Claims of "voter fraud" are delaying the official outcome of the Governor's race in North Carolina.

Donald Trump won in North Carolina two weeks ago. Republican Senator Richard Burr was re-elected. But, as the votes are still being tallied, Republican Governor Pat McCrory is losing to Democratic challenger Roy Cooper. McCrory insists it's all about voter fraud. David Graham is politics writer for the Atlantic based in Durham, North Carolina.
