With less than 24-hours until Election Day, Donald Trump is edging closer to an electoral victory and as a result is feverishly working on forming his cabinet.
It is being reported that Trump is considering some of his top surrogates to fill crucial roles within his administration, including Secretary of State and Defense.
None other than former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is on the short list for Secretary of State which New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is being considered for the role of Attorney General. Retired Lt. General Micahel Flynn is at the top of the list for Secretary of Defense or National Security Adviser while RNC Chairman Reince Priebus would be White House Chief of Staff.
In addition, Trump’s campaign finance chair, Steve Mnuchin, is being tapped for Treasury Secretary and Lew Eisenberg, the RNC’s finance chair, is being considered for Secretary of Commerce.
Sources also note that if Priebus were to turn down the role of Chief of Staff, Trump would turn to former campaign manager and current CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski or deputy’s campaign manager David Bossie to fill that role.
As of right now, campaign CEO and manager Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway are not among those being considered for White House roles, although things could change in the days to come.
