Army veteran and Republican Senator Tom Cotton was reportedly seen at Trump Tower in New York City Wednesday, fueling speculation he is being considered as the next Secretary of Defense.
Cotton has been a staunch opponent of the Iran nuclear deal and has been critical of President Obama's foreign policy and national security positions.
Senator Jeff Sessions and former Senator Kelly Ayotte, who lost her re-election bid last week, are also reportedly being considered for the position.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told reporters at Trump Tower earlier that new staff and cabinent announcements may not come today as the President-elect carefully considers his choices.
Only one person really knows what's going to happen.
Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 16, 2016
