The suspense over who President-elect Donald Trump will choose for the remaining Cabinet positions will soon be over.

In an interview with “Fox and Friends” that aired Friday morning, the president-elect said "almost all" of them will be announced next week.

“We have tremendous people joining the Cabinet and beyond the Cabinet, so you’ll be seeing almost all of them next week,” he said.

Trump boasted about the picks that have been announced so far.

“You know, we’re getting credit for having one of the greatest Cabinets ever picked,” he said. “These are people of great distinction, great success, which is what you need. You know, you’re negotiating with people. You can’t have people that didn’t know how to get there.”

The president-elect also said Gov. Mitt Romney, who’s in the running for the secretary of state position, has been “gracious” since the election.

On Thursday, he chose retired Marine Gen. James Mattis as secretary of Defense.
