Giuliani the favorite as Trump weighs secretary of state


NEW YORK (AP) — Sequestered in his Manhattan high-rise, President-elect Donald Trump is preparing to fill key foreign policy posts. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has emerged as the favorite to serve as secretary of state, a senior Trump official said.

Although Giuliani has little foreign policy experience, the official said there was no real competition for the job as the nation’s top diplomat. However, a second official cautioned that John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, remained in contention for the key post. Both officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the process by name.

The New York billionaire also was considering tapping Richard Grenell as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, a move that would bring some experience and diversity to his nascent administration. Grenell, who served as U.S. spokesman at the U.N. under President George W. Bush, would be the first openly gay person to fill a Cabinet-level foreign policy post.

I rarely say someone in the government deserves anything, but Bolton has paid his dues and deserves that role, he would be great in that position.

I agree with 10:58, Bolton is a MUCH BETTER choice!

Rudy is a nice guy - but a professional politician!

Whoever it is (Guilliani or Bolton) the person must be Jewish.
That is a little known requirement for the job.

Oh, please no. I like Rudy, but John Bolton is the man for this job. They say Rudy can pick what he wants, so lets hope he picks homeland security.
