Trump’s Administration position considerations

As the Morning Joe panel continues to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s ongoing search for a Secretary of State, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle explains: “The consensus is that the (General James) Mattis appointment is a home run. The appointment of a new Secretary of State is really critical. And again, the consensus in terms of the people I spoke with is it’s a good thing he’s taking this long to appoint a Secretary of State. (My sources) always throw in there that you’ve got Mattis, a strong Secretary of State (and) you’re going to need that to counterbalance the potential negative influence of (National security advisor) General (Michael) Flynn.” Listen to more of the panel’s conversation on the candidates Trump is considering for Administration positions.
