All Eyes on Trump’s Cabinet Picks

Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway made clear to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that both Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon will serve in Trump’s administration. Their roles, specifically, are yet to be announced.

“President-elect Trump will rely on them and a cadre of other supporters,” she added of Bannon, Trump’s campaign CEO, and Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Reports emerged last week Trump is weighing both Bannon and Priebus as his potential White House chief of staff.

Conway would not commit to who would be taking what role exactly, but said announcements are “imminent.”

A lot of speculation is building on who Trump will choose to be his chief of staff. The choice may boil down to former Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon and RNC chairman Reince Priebus. Bannon, known as a conservative renegade, would certainly be the most anti-establishment of picks. An email gone public between Bannon and staff revealed his desire to kick Paul Ryan out of his speakership position. Priebus, on the other hand, is a close ally of Ryan and is considered a more experienced choice for the position.

Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, and Newt Gingrich are a few of many that should be expecting top posts, as well.

Kellyanne Conway has revealed she will be serving in Trump’s White House. Her position is yet to be known.

For those still reeling in pain after Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s nail biter of a loss in New Hampshire – she is being considered as a top pick for secretary of defense.
