Trump Chosen To Revamp Historic Old Post Office
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Donald Trump won't live in the White House, but his brand will be a few blocks away. Trump talked of running for president, questioned President Obama's birthplace and endorsed Mitt Romney.

It's MORNING EDITION.
