In another potential move that showcases Trump’s willingness to work with former adversaries, the president-elect is seriously considering Chicago Cubs co-owner Todd Rickets for deputy commerce secretary.
Todd is a member of the prominent Ricketts family. His father, Joe Ricketts, is the founder of TD Ameritrade and a conservative mega-donor. His brother, Pete Ricketts, is the Republican governor of Nebraska.
Todd was a vocal Never Trumper during the Republican primary. His family even donated to an anti-Trump super PAC. However, he supported Trump after he secured the Republican nomination.
