ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: House Speaker Paul Ryan holds a news conference in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday (November 15) where he discussed the Trump administration's transition. "Our job is not to look backward, our job is to look forward, make President-elect Trump as successful as possible, help him with the transition, so we can make good on our commitment to the American people to fix this country's big problems," said Ryan. "We are on the same page with our president-elect.. We're working hand-in-glove and we're going to make sure this is a very successful administration," said Ryan. President-elect Donald Trump planned to meet with Vice President-elect Mike Pence in New York on Tuesday to discuss key appointments as moderate Republican Mike Rogers was jettisoned from the transition team. The departure of Rogers, a former congressman who was chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, indicated Trump may be leaning away from some establishment figures as Pence takes over the transition team. Rogers, who worked on the transition team led by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for six months, said he would continue to advise Trump. Pence took over the transition leadership from Christie last week. Trump and Pence will be "reviewing a number of names for key jobs" during the meeting at Trump Tower in New York as lists for the leadership positions begin to narrow, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said.
