If you thought Donald Trump was going to protect Medicare, well, you've been had.
Everything Trump has done since the election suggests that he's ready to either sit back and let Republicans privatize the program or lead the charge himself.
"No new deals" might be the new mantra in Trumpland - but the problem is still the same: Donald Trump's entire presidency is going to be one big conflict of interest.
For months now, Trump has been pressed to explain just how he'll divest from his massive business empire once he takes office.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi officially resigned last week following a crushing and - some would say self-inflicted - defeat at the polls.

In Pennsylvania, Trump himself has joined up with the local Republican Party to block Jill Stein's request for a recount.
In Wisconsin, Trump Super PACS are doing the dirty work and have asked a federal judge to stop what they say is a violation of due process rights.
Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.
That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
