REPORT: Donald Trump Eyeing Giuliani for AG, Gingrich for Secretary of State
According to a new report out Monday by Katy Tur and Benjy Sarlin from NBC News, Donald Trump‘s campaign is already eyeing several key supporters for White House roles.
Three campaign advisors (who spoke to NBC anonymously) say that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is being closely considered for Attorney General. In addition, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, another conservative leader who have supported Trump’s candidacy, is being eyed for Secretary of State.
According to the report, retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn — another key supporter who frequently makes the rounds in behalf of Donald Trump — is under consideration for defense secretary or national security adviser. Additionally, Trump finance chairman Steve Mnuchin is mentioned for Treasury secretary, and Republican National Committee finance chair Lew Eisenberg is being considered for commerce secretary.
As for chief of staff? Perhaps RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will fit the bill according to the report.
Despite any implications of putting the cart before the horse, Tur and Sarlin write that the campaign “say[s] they’re focused on winning first and foremost as well and no decisions have been made or positions finalized.”
