Transcript for Donald Trump's White House Transition Rocked by Speculation
Let's bring in our chief political analyst Matthew dowd for more. As you know all transitions have intrigue. The long knives are always out but this issue exacerbated by the surprise results of the election. The prominent role of his family. How quickly can he get it under control? I don't think any of us should be surprised about what's been going on. This guy is Frank Sinatra. He does it his way and as we remember he can't change campaign management three types in the midst of a campaign race and every time we would say you can't do that and win the race he wins the primary. He wins the general election, every time we said you can't do that and running the transition in the exact same way running trick plays on every play and we're sitting here saying you can't do that but seems to be winning when he does it. So far, Steve Bannon, can he survive the backlash? I think that's a real question, George. I think it's building -- I thought it started and might go away after a while but it's building in the course of this. I think Donald Trump will stand firm by him. He's done that throughout the race. He's not going to be pushed aside to do this but it is a problematic situation that one of his first announcements has received this much attention. And saw that interview on "60 minutes" but so far no press conference. At some point does he have to come out and fill this vacuum a bit more. He seems to only fill it by tweets and uses Twitter as a press conference vehicle in this. I don't expect him to do a press conference until after he's inaugurated president of the United States which would be unusual but I don't think he's going to do it until then. Matthew dowd, thanks very much.
