    President-elect Donald Trump plans to meet with his incoming national security adviser in the aftermath of a rattling day of violence around the world. 

    Trump appeared to jump ahead of investigators in blaming Islamic terrorists for deadly incidents Monday in Turkey and Germany and vowing anew to eradicate their networks. 

    He called the gunman who shot Russia's ambassador to Turkey a "radical Islamic terrorist." 

    And Trump released a statement about the Berlin truck crash in which at least 12 people were killed, saying that "Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities."

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
