president-elect trump. Let's get more from Jon Karl. We know during the campaign, trump said he would reverse the executive orders, normalizing relation that president Obama made. What will he demand? Can he get it done? We heard in the campaign him talking about being open to lifting the trade embargo. Just wanted to get a better deal than what he said Obama got. I do not think president trump will go forward to rapidly lift all that Obama did on Cuba. I think it's more likely, based on conversations with top aides, it's more likely he'll use the threat of doing that to try to gain concessions from the Cuban government on human rights and religious freedoms. They're saying they want release of political prisoners. The question is, how will Raul Castro and the administration respond? They dig in, trump needs to save face and lift some of those messages. Everything that president Obama did, the easing of the trade embargo, travel restrictions, it was all done through executive order. As president, trump could lift that all with a stroke of a pen. I see no indication that's something he wants to do unless he's goaded into it by the cube B government. Thank you, Jon. Now to the wild weather.
