President-elect Trump continues meetings to fill key cabinet positions

NEW YORK (KRQE) – President-elect Donald Trump is continuing work on his administration’s cabinet.

Thursday, more meetings are planned as he narrows down the field of potential appointees and makes some possible announcements.

We could know as early as Thursday some insight into Trump’s “landing teams,” teams that will head to Washington to start setting up staff in key agencies, and who Trump could appoint to key cabinet positions.

Trump and his transition team have been holding high profile meetings at Trump Tower in New York. He has already met with Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, who is up for Defense Secretary.

Also in those meetings, Wall Street veteran, Steven Mnuchin, a contender for Treasury Secretary. And of course former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, who is up for the job of Secretary of State.

“We discussed the transition, it went really well,” he told reporters after the meeting.

Vice President-elect, Mike Pence, who is leading the transition team, also met with Vice President Joe Biden.

Thursday, those meetings at Trump Tower will continue.

Former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, Florida Governor Rick Scott and Texas Congressman Jeb Hensarling all on the schedule to meet with Trump Thursday.

President-elect Trump also meets with Japan’s prime minister Thursday, his first meeting with a world leader since the election last week. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
