"Tracking Trump" is a blog offering of FromDC2Iowa. It covers President-Elect Trump's days between the election and his inauguration. It is a daily update, a weekly collection, a timeline, and a repository organized by both transition and policy issues. Check it out at

Where available, there are links to media reports with more detail. The principal sources are The New York Times and The Washington Post.

The first two weeks' coverage is already posted at http://tinyurl.com/h8osw2c . All there's room for in this announcement is an introduction to a skeleton outline of issue categories.
