Who will fill the Cainet?: More meetings for Trump


BEDMINSTER, N.J. (WTXF/AP) —  It’s another day of meetings at Donald Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, as the president-elect works on putting together his Cabinet.

Two of the people he met with yesterday are being considered for key positions, according to Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence: Mitt Romney for secretary of state and retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis for secretary of defense.

Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday, “Numerous patriots will be coming to Bedminster.” He added that he is continuing to “fill out the various positions necessary to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Trump’s Sunday schedule in Bedminster includes New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Earlier, he and Vice President-elect Mike Pence took a break and attended a church service.

The two have been working from Bedminster to pick people to lead Trump’s upcoming administration. Trump and Pence left Trump’s golf club shortly after 10am and entered the nearby Lamington Presbyterian Church.

The media were not allowed inside the white chapel; Trump staff said the church requested that.

Trump met with 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney Saturday. Pence said Romney is “under active consideration” by Trump for secretary of state, “along with some other very distinguished Americans.” On “Fox News Sunday,” Pence said the meeting with Trump was a “warm and substantive” exchange. He said the team spent about an hour together and that Romney and Trump did have some private time.

Trump also met with retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, considered a contender to lead the Pentagon.

Trump said he may announce some of his picks on Sunday.
