President-elect Donald Trump laid out his first hundred days in office. The announcement came in an online video; bypassing the traditional media with whom Trump has had a rocky relationship. CCTV America’s Jim Spellman reports.

Trump met with New York Times editors and reporters on Tuesday and with U.S. TV news journalists and executives on Monday in an off-the-record meeting described as a quote “firing squad” with Trump railing against what he calls unfair treatment by the media. The Trump transition team played down the conflict.

Trump has been busy meeting with potential cabinet members, but has continued to spar with critics.

Over the weekend, Vice President-elect Mike Pence was confronted by the cast of the Broadway play, Hamilton.

Trump responded, tweeting “The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior.”

And Trump bashed the U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live for portraying him as clueless by tweeting “It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all.”
