Time: 1:45 p.m. CEST

President-elect Donald Trump did not arrived at the meeting he called with the executive editors of the New York Times on Tuesday, money.cnn.com reports on November 22.

Trump published on his official Twitter account that the “terms and conditions” were changed at the last minute. Trump posted several tweets on the Times and announced possible meeting some other day, while claiming that the newspaper continues to cover him “inaccurately and with a nasty tone!”

The Times in its front-page story “questioned whether Trump’s business deals with test a provision of the Constitution that blocks office-holders from accepting certain gifts and profits from foreign governments.” The Times said, as money.cnn.com reports, they learned about the canceled meeting through the Trump’s twitter posts.

On Monday, Trump met with executives and reporters of other media, including CNN, where he complained about the coverage of his campaign. Yesterday, Trump also published a video on Transition2017 YouTube channel, in which he gives prospects about his 100 days at the White House after the inauguration on January 20, 2017.

In the video, President-elect Trump said that he would annul with the executive action the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, and instead would introduce bilateral trade agreements to return jobs into America.

Trump announced he would cancel restriction on energy production, which will create new jobs in the energy sector, will put in place that for any new regulations, two must be eliminated, would order plans against cyberattacks and it would order the Labor Department to investigate “abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker.”

Despite the video on transition progress, President-elect Trump continues review candidates for high official posts, including that of Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security.

The Washington Post publishes several names of people that are considered as candidates for the position of the department, formed after 9/11 attacks. The Post says Marine Gen. John F. Kelly, who retired in 2016 as chief of U.S. Southern Command, Frances Townsend, a top homeland security and counterrorism official, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach are mentioned for this top security official position.

According to the one page photographed by the Associated Press of Kobach’s plan, he could focus on questioning “high-risk” immigrants over “support they may allegedly have for Islamic sharia law,” the Post writes. Kobalch, also participated in the writing of the strict Arizona immigration law, and lead the fight against President Obama’s executive action on immigration.
