Trump Set To Unveil His New Cabinet

By Ikenga Chronicles November 20, 2016

US President-elect Donald Trump has met with a slate of potential cabinet members at his golf club Sunday, including Chris Christie.

This came at the heels of Trump building his new administration after his victory at the November 8 election over Democrat Hillary Clinton, with an eye on his January 20 inauguration.

Trump promised reporters they would “hear some things” Sunday after a second day of meetings at his New Jersey golf retreat, a 90-minute drive from Manhattan.

“Numerous patriots will be coming to Bedminster today as I continue to fill out the various positions necessary to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Asked if Christie had been disqualified from serving in cabinet over his involvement in ‘Bridgegate’, a traffic scandal widely seen as politically motivated, Trump retorted: “We like Chris a lot.”

Others meeting Trump on Sunday include Secretary of State contender and ex-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, immigration hardliner Kris Kobach, Wilbur Ross, under consideration for Commerce Secretary, global investor David McCormick and conservative writer John Gray.

Trump will also meet with Bob Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television who earlier this week penned an open letter urging African Americans to vote for their best interests rather than be wedded to any political party.

“Why shouldn’t we, as black voters, reject the notion that we are locked into one party which undoubtedly limits and dilutes our voting power?” Johnson wrote.

Exit polls showed some 88 percent of African American voters supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton versus just eight percent for Trump.

Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence met with 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Saturday for a “substantive and in-depth conversation about world affairs, national security and the future of America,” a transition team statement read.

Romney is reportedly in the running to be Secretary of State, even though he traded harsh barbs with Trump throughout the White House campaign, describing him as a “fraud” and rebuking him for proposals such as banning the entry of foreign Muslims.

If chosen, he would bring a more orthodox Republican worldview to foreign policy.

Trump has not been seen in public since he gave reporters the slip to take his family to dinner in New York on Tuesday.

He has, however, been active on Twitter, a forum where he has won fans — and detractors — with his off-the-cuff message style.

In an outburst of temper, he lashed out at the cast of the award-winning Broadway musical “Hamilton” after Pence was booed at a performance on Friday and the lead actor read out a statement urging the new administration to “work on behalf of all of us.”

“The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior,” Trump wrote early Sunday, in his third tweet on the subject.

So far, Trump has announced a handful of government nominations, including ultra-conservative Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General; hawkish congressman Mike Pompeo as CIA director and retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn as his National Security Advisor.

With some 15 senior positions in his cabinet still to fill, the property mogul will remain in Bedminster until late Sunday, far from the protesters besieging his New York building.
