President-elect Donald Trump says he’s made “a couple of deals” after spending the weekend meeting with a long list of potential administration appointees.
BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump said Sunday that he had “made a couple of deals” after spending the weekend meeting with a long list of potential administration appointees, but he did not reveal any more picks.
Trump and the vice president-elect, Mike Pence, did drop some hints. Pence said that Mitt Romney was “under active and serious consideration” to become the nation’s next secretary of state. Trump said retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis was an “impressive” prospect for defense secretary.
“I think we have some really incredible people going to be working for the country,” Trump said Sunday evening. “We really had some incredible meetings. You’ll be hearing about them soon.”
Among the visitors to the white-pillared clubhouse Sunday were Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, billionaire investor Wilbur Ross and retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, the former commander of U.S. Southern Command.
