Wilbur Ross, President-elect Donald Trump's commerce secretary nominee, has had a hand in sending an estimated 2,700 jobs overseas since 2004, Reuters reported Tuesday, citing previously unreported Labor Department data.

President-elect Donald Trump will take the oath of presidency Friday with his hand on his 60-year-old childhood Bible, CBN News reports.
Trump has shown off his Bible at campaign rallies before, declaring: "I believe in God, I believe in the Bible, I'm a Christian, I have a lot of reasons." He was given the Bible on June 12, 1955, two days before his 9th birthday, when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, New York:
"[Trump's] mother, Mary Anne, presented it to him and he's kept it ever since," CBN News reports.
A three-day weekend apparently wasn't long enough for President-elect Donald Trump to get over the fact that Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) doesn't see him as a "legitimate president" because of Russia's meddling in the presidential election. Trump had already tweeted about Lewis on Saturday, suggesting the civil rights leader was "all talk, talk, talk — no action or results," but he had more to say on Tuesday morning, this time about Lewis' claim that Trump's inauguration would be the first he'd ever skipped in his nearly 30 years in Congress:

Archaeologists have discovered a pendant in a former Nazi death camp in Poland that is nearly identical to a pendant owned by Anne Frank, The Washington Post reports. The triangular charm says "Mazel Tov," as well as a date, "July 3, 1929," and a location, "Frankfurt A. M." The only other pendant of its kind known to archaeologists belonged to Frank.
The Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum reports that the newly discovered pendant might have belonged to Karoline Cohn, a Jewish girl who was born at the date and location listed on the pendant.
At a news conference Tuesday morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused President Obama's administration of attempting to "undermine the legitimacy" of President-elect Donald Trump. Addressing the unconfirmed dossier that surfaced last week alleging Russia has compromising information on Trump, Putin reportedly said anyone circulating the "fake" claims about the president-elect is "worse than prostitutes."
Putin insisted the dossier is a "hoax," Reuters reported, and also said he has never met with Trump.
